The Â 53rd Â student Â senate Â met Â for Â their Â third Â meet-Â ing Â of Â the Â semester Â on Â Tuesday, Â Feb. Â 14, Â discussing Â their Â committee Â efforts Â and Â adding Â to Â a Â list Â of Â goals. Â Student Â Association Â (SA) Â Executive Â Vice Â Presi-Â dent Â Eve Â Stern Â presented Â to Â the Â legislative Â body Â re-Â garding Â possibly Â moving Â the Â meal Â exchange Â program Â to Â Parker Â Theater, Â adding Â people Â to Â the Â University Â Police Â Committee Â and Â introducing Â a Â focus Â group Â for Â gender-Âneutral Â housing. Â SA Â Executive Â Vice Â President Â of Â Academic Â Affairs Â and Â Governance Â Ayanna Â Thomas Â presented Â to Â the Â sen-Â DWHÂżOOLQJDFDGHPLFFRPPLWWHHSRVLWLRQV6KHWROGWKH body Â that Â seats Â will Â be Â opening Â up Â on Â the Â Academic Â Affairs Â Curriculum Â Committee Â in Â the Â school Â of Â liberal Â arts, Â business Â and Â other Â areas. Â She Â also Â talked Â about Â the Â Constitutional Â Rules Â Committee Â reviewing Â the Â Student Â Union Â (SU) Â hours Â and Â the Â New Â York Â state Â Good Â Samaritan Â Policy. Â Meanwhile, Â SA Â President Â Terrell Â Coakley Â talked Â about Â a Â female Â student Â who Â said Â she Â felt Â uncomfort-Â able Â when Â she Â found Â derogatory Â lyrics Â on Â a Â desk Â on Â campus. Â This Â prompted Â Coakley Â to Â discuss Â a Â possible Â forum Â for Â gender Â and Â sexuality, Â similar Â to Â the Â forum Â last Â semester Â discussing Â the Â racial-Âsignage Â on Â campus Â inciting Â harm Â to Â African-ÂAmericans. Â Thomas Â urged Â students Â to Â come Â up Â with Â revi-Â sions Â for Â the Â library Â survey. Â The Â legislative Â body Â came Â up Â with Â a Â name Â change Â for Â the Â survey: Â The Â Library Â Renovation Â Survey. Â She Â wanted Â members Â to Â take Â out Â â€œarbitrary Â questions.â€? Â Other Â issues Â discussed Â included Â 24-Âhour Â accessibility, Â rearranging Â question Â order Â and Â preserving Â particular Â library Â areas Â from Â renovations. Â Thomas Â said Â to Â contact Â her Â with Â any Â further Â con-Â cerns Â or Â questions Â regarding Â The Â Library Â Renovation Â Survey. Â Â Sen. Â Rose Â Faber Â presented Â to Â her Â fellow Â members Â

Â Sen. Â Matt Â Clarkson Â presented Â a Â problem Â with Â text-Â book Â prices. Â He Â asked Â other Â members Â for Â solutions. Â â€œUnited Â University Â Professions Â (UUP) Â should Â act Â as Â allies Â with Â cheap Â education Â encouraging Â teachers Â to Â use Â older Â editions,â€? Â Cohen Â said. Â Sen. Â Dhruv Â Shah Â said Â that Â students Â should Â have Â access Â to Â the Â book Â titles Â for Â class Â immediately, Â so Â they Â could Â have Â time Â to Â get Â them Â before Â classes Â be-Â gin. Â Clarkson Â was Â looking Â for Â existing Â legislation Â Â
concerning Â a Â 10 Â percent Â change Â in Â content Â if Â profes-Â sors Â want Â to Â use Â a Â newer Â edition. Â Cohen Â suggested Â a Â Facebook-Âtype Â group Â that Â would Â offer Â students Â a Â book Â exchange Â with Â other Â students Â in Â the Â New Â Paltz Â Â community. Thomas Â also Â discussed Â the Â creation Â of Â a Â Student Â Concern Â Committee Â to Â â€œbring Â awareness Â of Â SA Â to Â stu-Â dent Â concerns Â on Â campus.â€? Â The Â legislative Â body Â talked Â about Â the Â committeeâ€™s Â logistics, Â such Â as Â possible Â meeting Â locations, Â who Â would Â chair Â it Â (the Â senate Â or Â council Â chair) Â and Â the Â FRPPLWWHHÂśVSRVVLEOHPDNHXSRIÂżYHVHQDWRUVDQGÂżYH others Â â€œnominated Â through Â senate.â€?

SUNY Â New Â Paltz Â has Â been Â subjected Â to Â budget Â cuts Â and Â the Â removal Â of Â adjunct Â profes-Â sors Â and Â as Â a Â result, Â students Â are Â speaking Â out Â as Â a Â group Â calling Â themselves Â Â â€œstudents Â with Â a Â common Â interest,â€? Â involved Â members Â said. Â Â The Â Occupy Â movement Â on Â campus Â has Â be-Â come Â a Â platform Â for Â students Â to Â air Â their Â griev-Â ances Â and Â make Â their Â voices Â heard, Â member Â Ro-Â berto Â LoBianco Â said. Â â€œStudent Â voice Â has Â been Â marginalized Â for Â much Â too Â long,â€? Â LoBianco Â said. The Â Occupy Â movement Â is Â establishing Â goals Â to Â break Â the Â current Â system Â and Â place Â the Â power Â in Â the Â hands Â of Â the Â students. Â According Â to Â member Â Deborah Â Walnicki, Â the Â group Â on Â campus Â has Â a Â different Â agenda Â than Â those Â in Â the Â town Â and Â village. Â 7KH JURXS VSHQW VLJQLÂżFDQW WLPH JHWWLQJ more Â library Â hours Â and Â improving Â conditions. Â Walnicki Â said Â the Â library Â will Â soon Â renovate, Â closing Â a Â third Â of Â the Â library Â space Â and Â little Â is Â being Â done Â about Â this. Â LoBianco Â said Â some Â of Â the Â concerns Â he Â and Â the Â group Â are Â addressing Â are Â the Â protection Â of Â adjunct Â workers Â and Â wage Â stability, Â workers Â rights Â and Â campus Â food Â services. Â Their Â goal Â is Â to Â ÂżJKWDJDLQVWFXWVWRVWXGHQWVHUYLFHVRQFDPSXV and Â make Â it Â better Â for Â the Â campus Â community. Â
Although Â the Â campus Â Occupy Â group Â is Â working Â toward Â their Â goals, Â other Â students Â are Â confused Â by Â the Â purpose Â of Â the Â Occupy Â move-Â ments, Â both Â on Â and Â off Â campus. Â John Â Sotomay-Â or, Â a Â fourth-Âyear Â creative Â writing Â major, Â said Â he Â is Â not Â opposed Â to Â the Â Occupy Â movement Â itself Â but Â rather Â the Â location Â of Â the Â protests. Â He Â said Â the Â businesses Â in Â the Â town Â and Â village Â should Â not Â be Â blamed. Â Â â€œI Â live Â on Â Main Â Street, Â like Â right Â across Â from Â the Â Wells Â Fargo Â bank,â€? Â Sotomayor Â said. Â â€œBitches Â be Â drumming Â and Â chanting Â and Â blow-Â ing Â their Â vuvuzelas Â all Â up Â in Â front Â of Â my Â window Â and Â Iâ€™m Â like, Â shit Â man, Â this Â is Â New Â Paltz, Â weâ€™re Â all Â hippies.â€? Similarly, Â Ken Â Leverett, Â a Â fourth-Âyear organizational Â psychology Â major, Â said Â he Â does Â not Â feel Â the Â movement Â on Â campus Â is Â large Â enough Â to Â be Â effective. Â He Â said Â the Â campus Â group Â should Â team Â up Â with Â other Â Occupy Â move-Â ments Â in Â the Â Hudson Â Valley Â to Â create Â one Â outlet. Â Âł,WKLQNWKHPDLQĂ€DZRIWKH2FFXS\PRYH PHQWLVWKHVDPHWKLQJWKDWPDNHVLWJUHDWÂ˛LW lacks Â leadership,â€? Â Leverett Â said.

Compactors Â Make Â Campus Â Greener By Â Jaleesa Â Baulkman Copy Â Editor Â | Â Jbaulkman75@hawkmail.newpaltz.edu
Facilities Â Management Â hopes Â to Â make Â the Â campus Â greener Â by Â introducing Â solar Â compactors Â and Â using Â sustainable Â materials Â in Â the Â renova-Â tions Â of Â the Â Sojournor Â Truth Â Library Â (STL) Â and Â the Â Wooster Â Science Â Building Â (WSB). Five Â solar-Âpowered Â trash Â compactors Â were Â installed Â on Â campus Â for Â free Â last Â month Â through Â a Â negotiation Â between Â SUNY Â New Â Paltz Â and Â Waste Â Management Â on Â their Â waste Â management Â contract, Â said Â Assistant Â Director Â of Â Facilities Â Â Operations Â Kim Â Nelson. â€œI Â have Â been Â looking Â at Â [the Â solar-Âpowered Â trash Â compactors] Â for Â a Â couple Â of Â years,â€? Â Nelson Â said. Â â€œBut Â they Â were Â really Â expensive.â€? The Â solar Â trash Â compactors Â are Â made Â out Â of Â recycled Â metals Â and Â self-Âpowered Â by Â solar Â en-Â ergy. Â Â It Â compresses Â trash Â so Â it Â doesnâ€™t Â have Â to Â be Â emptied Â like Â non-Âcompacting Â bins. Â These Â devices Â are Â expected Â to Â lower Â fuel Â consumption Â and Â greenhouse Â gas Â emissions. â€œLess Â pickups Â means Â less Â labor Â and Â less Â fuel Â to Â get Â to Â each Â [trash Â bin] Â to Â empty,â€? Â Nelson Â said. Â â€œThis Â will Â not Â dramatically Â reduce Â fuels Â unless Â they Â were Â campus-Âwide.â€? Â A Â solar Â and Â grid-Âconnected Â photovoltaic Â pan-Â el Â is Â located Â on Â top Â of Â the Â bin Â to Â convert Â sunlight Â to Â electricity. Â Thereâ€™s Â a Â compactor Â located Â inside Â WKHELQWKDWÂłĂ€DWWHQVRXWDQGFUXVKHVÂ´WUDVK In Â front Â of Â the Â solar-Âpowered Â bins Â are Â a Â series Â of Â lights Â indicating Â when Â a Â trash Â bin Â needs Â to Â be Â emptied. Â
A Â green Â light Â means Â that Â there Â is Â plenty Â of Â room Â left Â in Â the Â bin, Â a Â yellow Â light Â means Â itâ€™s Â close Â to Â being Â full Â and Â a Â red Â light Â means Â itâ€™s Â full.

SUNY Â New Â Paltz Â President Â Donald Â Christian Â met Â with Â students Â on Â Feb. Â 13 Â to Â discuss Â ways Â to Â improve Â the Â quality Â of Â cam-Â pus Â life. Christian Â visited Â Gage Â Hall Â on Â Monday Â night Â to Â meet Â with Â students Â and Â let Â them Â voice Â their Â concerns Â about Â issues Â such Â as Â course Â availability, Â construction Â and Â possi-Â bilities Â of Â not Â graduating Â on Â time. Christian Â said Â he Â will Â be Â visiting Â each Â residence Â hall Â over Â the Â course Â of Â the Â se-Â PHVWHU &KULVWLDQ ÂżUVW YLVLWHG &ULVSHOO +DOO two Â weeks Â ago. Â There Â was Â a Â turn-Âout Â of Â â€œat Â leastâ€? Â 50 Â to Â 60 Â students, Â as Â opposed Â to Â the Â turn-Âout Â of Â only Â 30 Â students Â on Â Monday Â evening. â€œWe Â talked Â about Â topics Â all Â across Â the Â map,â€? Â Christian Â said. Â â€œWe Â talked Â about Â
course Â availability Â issues, Â course Â schedul-Â LQJ WKRVH FRQYHUVDWLRQV FRQÂżUPHG IRU PH some Â of Â the Â issues Â we Â are Â aware Â of Â and Â are Â trying Â to Â address. Â I Â heard Â about Â advising, Â the Â value Â of Â living Â in Â residence Â halls Â and Â insightful Â observations Â from Â students Â about Â living Â in Â a Â freshmen Â style Â residence Â hall Â that Â doesnâ€™t Â have Â suites.â€? Christian Â said Â while Â he Â was Â interim Â president Â last Â year, Â he Â and Â other Â administra-Â tive Â members Â tried Â to Â come Â up Â with Â ways Â to Â better Â understand Â the Â needs Â of Â the Â student Â body. â€œWe Â talked Â last Â year Â when Â I Â was Â interim Â president, Â about Â how Â a Â new Â president Â can Â stay Â in Â touch Â with Â students Â and Â how Â to Â do Â that Â in Â the Â best Â way,â€? Â Christian Â said. Â â€œOne Â of Â the Â things Â I Â did Â is Â form Â a Â student Â advisory Â group Â to Â the Â president Â that Â has Â been Â very, Â very Â useful Â for Â me Â and Â useful Â for Â the Â stu-Â

Â After Â the Â talk Â about Â construction, Â stu-Â dents Â asked Â about Â how Â this Â will Â affect Â the Â budget Â cuts Â from Â last Â year. Â Christian Â said Â the Â money Â for Â the Â new Â buildings Â and Â ren-Â ovations Â would Â not Â affect Â the Â positions Â of Â teachers Â and Â course Â availability.

Â Students Â raised Â concerns Â as Â to Â whether Â the Â incident Â will Â change Â the Â way Â room Â searches Â will Â be Â conducted Â and Â why Â they Â didnâ€™t Â receive Â emails Â earlier Â in Â the Â day. â€œStudent Â privacy Â is Â a Â very Â big Â concern Â for Â us,â€? Â Christian Â said. Â â€œWe Â donâ€™t Â want Â to Â have Â to Â make Â students Â and Â the Â residence Â halls Â uncomfortable Â with Â one Â another.â€?

New Â York Â State Â District Â Lines Â Redrawn By Â Roger Â Gilson Contributing Â Writer Â | Â Gilson46@hawkmail.newpaltz.edu
New Â York Â state Â senators Â have Â redrawn Â senate Â district Â lines, Â splitting Â Ulster Â County Â into Â four Â separate Â voting Â districts Â which Â may Â have Â a Â profound Â impact Â on Â the Â representation Â of Â Ulster Â County Â residents. Â 7KH OLQHV PXVW EH FKDQJHG HYHU\ \HDUV WR UHĂ€HFW shifting Â population Â trends, Â according Â to Â The Â United Â States Â Census Â Bureau. Â Project Â Coordinator Â of Â New Â Paltzâ€™s Â NYPIRG Â branch Â Eric Â Wood Â said Â the Â new Â redistricting Â represented Â â€œthe Â worst Â gerrymandered Â lines Â ever Â drawn.â€? The Â senate Â lines Â were Â drawn Â up Â by Â a Â commission Â consisting Â of Â Republican Â Sen. Â Michael Â F. Â Nozzolio, Â Democratic Â Sen. Â Martin Â Dilan Â and Â Sen. Â Welquis Â R. Â Lopez, Â an Â independent Â member, Â chosen Â by Â the Â senators. Â Republicans Â currently Â hold Â a Â slight Â majority Â in Â the Â state Â senate, Â allowing Â them Â to Â choose Â which Â senators Â sit Â on Â the Â committee. â€œWhat Â it Â basically Â means Â is Â that Â there Â will Â be Â four Â state Â senators Â representing Â Ulster Â County,â€? Â Josh Â Simons Â of Â the Â Center Â for Â Research, Â Regional Â Education Â and Â Outreach Â said. Â Â Simons Â said Â since Â Ulster Â Countyâ€™s Â senate Â districts Â stretch Â over Â many Â other Â counties, Â people Â in Â the Â area Â will Â â€œhave Â very Â little Â sway Â with Â their Â state Â senator.â€? Â He Â said Â this Â
means Â each Â senator Â will Â represent Â a Â small Â percentage Â of Â each Â senate Â district Â in Â Ulster Â County. Â â€œBasically Â it Â entirely Â disenfranchises Â the Â people Â of Â Ulster Â County,â€? Â he Â said. Â N.Y. Â Central Â School Â District Â Board Â of Â Education Â Trustee Â Daniel Â Torres Â is Â worried Â the Â four Â senators Â will Â not Â be Â as Â accessible Â to Â the Â community. Â â€œ[When] Â we Â have Â things Â to Â advocate Â for, Â we Â now Â have Â four Â senators Â to Â go Â to,â€? Â he Â said. Â â€œItâ€™s Â hard Â enough Â to Â meet Â with Â one Â representative, Â let Â alone Â four.â€? The Â State Â Assemblyâ€™s Â lines, Â which Â were Â also Â redrawn Â from Â information Â collected Â from Â the Â 2010 Â census, Â were Â called Â by Â Wood Â â€œthe Â second Â worst Â drawn Â lines Â in Â history.â€? Â The Â members Â of Â this Â commission Â were Â chosen Â by Â the Â democratic-Âcontrolled Â state Â assembly. Â Âł,WÂśVYHU\GLIÂżFXOWWRDVNDSHUVRQLQDSRVLWLRQRISRZHU to Â willingly Â give Â up Â that Â power,â€? Â Simons Â said. Ed Â Koch, Â former Â mayor Â of Â New Â York Â City, Â created Â the Â government Â group Â New Â York Â Uprising Â to Â end Â gerrymandering Â and Â establish Â an Â independent Â redistricting Â committee. Â Ahead Â of Â fall Â elections, Â Koch Â convinced Â senate Â Republicans, Â including Â then-Âsenate Â Minority Â Leader Â Dean Â Skelos, Â to Â sign Â a Â pledge Â to Â establish Â an Â independent Â redistricting Â commission.
Thursday, Â February Â 16, Â 2012
Â Gov. Â Andrew Â Cuomo Â also Â signed Â the Â pledge. However, Â according Â to Â Koch, Â state Â representatives Â reneged Â on Â their Â promise, Â including Â Skelos, Â who Â now Â leads Â the Â senate. â€œThe Â way Â I Â liken Â it Â to Â is, Â if Â there Â were Â a Â referendum Â on Â campus Â where Â they Â said Â weâ€™re Â going Â to Â send Â this Â paper Â around Â and Â if Â the Â majority Â of Â people Â sign Â this Â is Â going Â to Â happen, Â and Â that Â thing Â that Â was Â going Â to Â happen Â was Â going Â to Â threaten Â my Â job,â€? Â Simons Â said. Â â€œWhen Â that Â paper Â comes Â across Â my Â desk Â how Â likely Â am Â I Â going Â to Â sign Â that Â piece Â of Â paper?â€? Â Wood Â said Â he Â believes Â that Â Cuomo Â is Â going Â to Â veto Â the Â district Â lines. Â â€œThere Â is Â no Â way Â for Â him Â to Â avoid Â the Â veto Â without Â EHFRPLQJ D Ă€LSĂ€RSSHUÂ´ VLQFH KH DOVR VLJQHG .RFKÂśV pledge, Â according Â to Â Wood. If Â the Â lines Â are Â vetoed, Â the Â issue Â would Â enter Â the Â courts. Â Simons Â said Â after Â this Â happens, Â there Â is Â a Â chance Â that Â the Â courts Â would Â simply Â deny Â the Â veto Â and Â kick Â the Â issue Â back Â to Â the Â legislature. â€œLeaving Â aside Â the Â partisan Â sort Â of Â divides Â here, Â it Â really Â makes Â the Â county Â itself Â underrepresented,â€? Â he Â said. Â â€œUlster Â County Â is Â split Â two Â times Â more Â than Â any Â other Â county Â in Â the Â entire Â state.â€?

Relay for Life Spreads the Love NEW PALTZ STUDENTS HOST VALENTINE’S DAY THEMED KICK-OFF PARTY
Many Relay for Life E-board members have a personal connection to the cause.
By Katie Kocijanski Copy Editor | Kkocijanski14@hawkmail.newpaltz.edu
The American Cancer Society re- ceived support from New Paltz students when Relay for Life held their Valen- tine’s Kick-off Party on Thursday, Feb. 9 in the Multipurpose Room (MPR) of the Student Union (SU). The event was held to promote how guests can become active in the Relay for Life event. David Manis, third-year general business major and co-chair of the committee, said the main event will take place on Saturday, April 21 on the Old Main Quad from 10 a.m. to 10 p.m. Many Relay for Life Executive board (E-board) members have a per- sonal connection to the cause. Many
of them know people who have fought cancer. “Whether it be a family member, a teacher, or a friend, they are all doing WKHLUSDUWWR¿JKWEDFNDJDLQVWDGLVHDVH that affects everyone in some way,” Ma- nis said. “As a side note, I am a testicu- lar cancer survivor of three years, which is my connection to cancer and the Re- lay event.” Lindsay Beltz, a second-year soci- ology major, said she has always had a special connection to the cause. “My family always participated in my town’s Relay for Life because we have several cancer survivors,” Beltz said. “Since I do have such a long his- tory of cancer in my family, I wanted

to work on the other side — planning rather than just participating — to try to help such a great organization.” This semester, the club is trying to team up with other organizations through Greek Life, Residence Life and other clubs and organizations to put on fundraisers, third-year psychology and organizational communications major Sarah Sobel said. “We will be having some team cap- tain’s meetings where we will have food and games and hopefully have many more teams sign up for Relay,” Sobel said. “My personal goal is to raise over $25,000 and have no rain on the day of the event. I would also love to see the town get involved and maybe even the

high school and middle school.” At the Valentine’s Day party, a to- tal of $275 was raised, bringing the or- ganization closer to their $25,000 goal. Various groups on campus took part in the Valentine’s Day themed festivi- ties. Campus groups Absolut A Capella, Sexy Pitches, Epic-Glee and TBA also performed for guests. Pizza was provid- ed by Fat Bob’s Pizzeria. “Last year we raised over $13,000. This year we really want to raise $25,000. As of Feb. 6, we have raised close to $1,800, which is a really good pace for us,” Manis said. Donations can be made at the Relay for Life website, relayforlife.org/sunynewpaltz.

Â All Â types Â of Â [people Â from] Â the Â community Â showed Â up Â and Â that Â was Â really Â nice Â because Â in Â Staten Â Island, Â itâ€™s Â
very Â cliquey,â€? Â Finazzo Â said. Â â€œItâ€™s Â great Â that Â they Â came Â up Â with Â something Â every-Â one Â could Â bring Â their Â kids Â to Â and Â enjoy Â and Â not Â ask Â anything Â in Â return.â€? Â The Â event Â featured Â tastings Â of Â New Â Orleans Â gumbo Â (regular Â and Â vegetarian), Â jambalaya Â and Â hurricane Â drinks.

ANNUAL COMPETITION PROMOTES GREEN THINKING By Â Eileen Â Liebler Contributing Â Writer Â | Â N02448400@hawkmail.newpaltz.edu
RecycleMania Â is Â an Â eight-Âweek Â competition Â taking Â place Â across Â the Â U.S. Â and Â Canada Â with Â the Â goal Â of Â increas-Â ing Â awareness Â for Â sustainability Â issues Â and Â Â recycling, Â Kelly Â Drummond, Â current Â event Â coordinator Â for Â the Â Recycling Â club, Â said Â in Â a Â blog Â post Â at Â greenthinking.newpaltz.edu. Â The Â competition Â is Â not Â only Â between Â different Â univer-Â sities, Â but Â also Â each Â residence Â hall Â and Â the Â winning Â resi-Â dence Â hall Â will Â get Â $500. Â New Â Paltz Â is Â a Â part Â of Â the Â benchmark Â division, Â meaning Â the Â recycling Â done Â on Â campus Â is Â tracked Â for Â all Â eight Â weeks Â although Â they Â are Â not Â included Â in Â the Â overall Â rankings Â of Â the Â competition. Â Paper, Â cans, Â food Â waste, Â bottles Â and Â cardboard Â are Â the Â materials Â that Â are Â included Â in Â this Â event. On Â March Â 15, Â from Â 7 Â to Â 9 Â p.m. Â in Â the Â Student Â Union Â Multipurpose Â Room, Â the Â Recycling Â Club Â will Â host Â a Â Game Â Show Â Night. Â The Â eventâ€™s Â games Â are Â either Â made Â of Â recycled Â material Â or Â contain Â environmentally Â themed Â questions Â to Â raise Â awareness Â about Â RecycleMania. â€œFamily Â Feud,â€? Â â€œWheel Â of Â Fortuneâ€? Â and Â â€œJeopardyâ€? Â were Â some Â of Â the Â games Â included Â in Â last Â yearâ€™s Â game Â night, Â
which Â had Â teams Â from Â 24 Â different Â clubs Â and Â organizations. Â 7KLV\HDUWKHHYHQWLVOLPLWHGWRWKHÂżUVWWHDPVWRVLJQ up. Alexandria Â Wojcik, Â New Â Paltz Â alumna Â and Â coordinator Â RIWKHÂżUVW5HF\FOH0DQLDHYHQWLQVDLGSDUWLFLSDWLQJ in Â the Â event Â was Â â€œhectic Â and Â chaoticâ€? Â because Â many Â people Â in Â the Â facilitating Â departments Â felt Â they Â werenâ€™t Â prepared Â to Â participate Â in Â the Â event. Â They Â did Â not Â come Â in Â last Â place, Â however, Â which Â was Â exciting, Â Wojcik Â said. Â Last Â year, Â Lenape Â Hall Â won Â the Â RecycleMania Â com-Â petition Â by Â taking Â bottles Â as Â admission Â during Â an Â event Â for Â the Â superbowl, Â shouting Â for Â residents Â to Â take Â out Â their Â recy-Â cling Â and Â going Â dumpster Â diving, Â Campus Â Communicaiton Â Coordinator Â for Â the Â Residence Â Hall Â Student Â Association Â (RHSA) Â Lixmer Â Ventura Â said. Â This Â year, Â DuBois Â Hall Â is Â hosting Â different Â programs Â to Â encourage Â residents Â to Â recycle. Â The Â residence Â hall Â also Â has Â a Â prize Â system Â where Â the Â suite Â that Â does Â the Â most Â recycling Â gets Â a Â prize, Â Ventura Â said. Â RHSA Â is Â getting Â involved Â by Â helping Â put Â on Â the Â event Â and Â acting Â as Â a Â medium Â for Â the Â Recycling Â Club Â and Â the Â halls, Â Ventura Â said.

All Â families Â have Â strange Â food Â traditions;Íž Â however, Â I Â never Â saw Â the Â food Â my Â dad Â made Â for Â dinner Â as Â anything Â but Â normal. Â Until Â about Â two Â months Â ago, Â I Â was Â under Â the Â impression Â that Â ev-Â eryone Â in Â America Â had, Â at Â least Â once, Â partaken Â in Â a Â bowl Â of Â Hot-ÂDog-ÂBean. Â Â I Â had Â somehow Â managed Â to Â live Â two Â full Â decades Â without Â realizing Â that Â Hot-ÂDog-ÂBean Â was Â an Â aberration. Â I Â was Â rattling Â off Â ideas Â of Â what Â to Â cook Â my Â boyfriend Â for Â dinner Â and Â these Â three Â simple Â words Â slipped Â out Â of Â my Â mouth Â â€” Â suddenly Â the Â most Â pressing Â issue Â was Â not Â what Â we Â should Â be Â eating Â but Â what Â the Â hell Â was Â Hot-Â Dog-ÂBean. Â Hot-ÂDog-ÂBean Â probably Â either Â means Â a Â lot Â of Â things Â to Â a Â lot Â of Â people Â or Â nothing Â at Â all Â to Â everyone Â but Â me Â (I Â suspect Â the Â latter Â is Â the Â case). Â Basically Â the Â ingredients Â are Â all Â in Â the Â name: Â hot Â dogs Â and Â baked Â beans, Â but Â the Â most Â important Â part Â is Â whatâ€™s Â not Â listed Â â€” Â chopped Â meat. Â <RXFRRNWKHFKRSSHGPHDWÂżUVWWKHQMXVW mush Â all Â the Â other Â ingredients Â together Â un-Â til Â itâ€™s Â all Â warm Â and Â goopy. Â Iâ€™m Â not Â sure Â why Â this Â became Â a Â household Â tradition Â (because Â my Â motherâ€™s Â Italian Â heritage Â effectively Â barred Â my Â father Â from Â the Â kitchen), Â but Â I Â know Â it Â probably Â went Â on Â for Â far Â too Â long. Â I Â mean Â there Â prob-Â ably Â isnâ€™t Â one Â aspect Â of Â this Â meal Â thatâ€™s Â actu-Â ally Â healthy Â for Â you Â (unless Â youâ€™re Â an Â old-Âtimey Â hobo, Â in Â which Â case Â you Â probably Â have Â much Â more Â pressing Â health Â concerns). I Â know Â the Â combination Â of Â beans Â and Â hot Â dogs Â is Â not Â that Â disorienting Â for Â most Â people. Â There Â are Â even Â cans Â of Â food Â such Â as Â Van Â Campâ€™s Â â€œBeanee Â Weenee,â€? Â so Â I Â suppose Â much Â of Â the Â weirdness Â comes Â from Â the Â chopped Â meat. Â Ac-Â cording Â to Â my Â fatherâ€™s Â semi-Âmythical Â account Â of Â Hot-ÂDog-ÂBeanâ€™s Â hazy Â origins, Â my Â grand-Â mother Â was Â making Â this Â for Â dinner Â and Â didnâ€™t Â have Â enough Â hot Â dogs Â to Â feed Â the Â whole Â fam-Â ily Â so Â she Â added Â chopped Â meat. Â My Â father Â said, Â â€œThatâ€™s Â when Â the Â star Â was Â born.â€? Iâ€™ve Â been Â making Â this Â a Â lot Â recently Â (most-Â ly Â because Â itâ€™s Â cheap), Â and Â Iâ€™ve Â realized Â that Â strange Â family Â food Â habits Â really Â become Â ap-Â parent Â in Â college.

Â Third-Âyear Â theater Â tech Â major Â Call Â is Â the Â only Â theater Â tech Â major Â enrolled Â in Â New Â Paltz Â with Â a Â design Â concentration Â and Â an Â emphasis Â in Â properties Â (props).

Â Call Â said. Â â€œI Â feel Â like Â there Â are Â a Â lot Â of Â demands Â put Â on Â me Â and Â expectations Â of Â me Â because Â Iâ€™m Â the Â only Â one Â willing Â to Â help Â out Â with Â props.

Â It Â makes Â me Â expect Â more Â out Â of Â me.â€? &DOOÂśVMREDVSURSVPDVWHULQFOXGHVÂżQGLQJ buying Â and Â procuring Â all Â props Â necessary Â for Â a Â theatrical Â production. Â Objects Â that Â fall Â under Â the Â category Â of Â â€œpropsâ€? Â technically Â range Â from Â a Â piece Â of Â jewelry Â to Â a Â live Â stage Â animal. Â The Â props Â masterâ€™s Â job Â is Â lengthy Â and Â tiring, Â as Â he/ she Â is Â in Â charge Â of Â obtaining Â and Â maintaining Â these Â objects. Â Â Andrew Â Ricci, Â a Â second-Âyear Â theater Â tech Â major Â with Â a Â concentration Â in Â stage Â management Â and Â lighting Â design, Â said Â he Â understands Â the Â im-Â mense Â pressure Â props Â masters Â are Â under Â and Â gives Â Call, Â well, Â her Â props. Â Â â€œSheâ€™s Â very Â dedicated Â to Â her Â work Â and Â she Â spends Â a Â lot Â of Â time Â on Â it, Â even Â during Â the Â off-Â hours,â€? Â Ricci Â said. Â â€œIt Â has Â a Â lot Â of Â quality Â to Â it.â€? Coming Â to Â New Â Paltz, Â Callâ€™s Â dilemma Â wasnâ€™t Â that Â she Â was Â unsure Â of Â what Â she Â wanted Â to Â do Â â€” Â it Â was Â that Â she Â wanted Â to Â do Â it Â all. Â â€œOriginally, Â I Â wanted Â to Â be Â a Â scenographer: Â someone Â who Â designs Â lights, Â costumes Â and Â sets,â€? Â Call Â said. Â â€œSomeone Â suggested Â I Â try Â doing Â props Â to Â get Â a Â taste Â of Â sets Â and Â I Â ended Â up Â falling Â in Â love Â with Â it Â because Â it Â incorporated Â everything.â€?
As Â props Â master, Â Call Â collaborates Â with Â technicians Â in Â every Â concentration Â to Â create Â a Â ÂżQLVKHG SURGXFW 6KH ZRUNV ZLWK VHW GHVLJQHUV to Â establish Â the Â setup Â of Â a Â scene, Â lighting Â design-Â ers Â to Â determine Â the Â direction Â in Â which Â a Â prop Â should Â be Â placed Â and Â costume Â designers Â to Â de-Â cide Â whether Â a Â garment Â is Â considered Â a Â costume Â or Â a Â prop. Â Over Â the Â summer, Â Call Â worked Â with Â private Â theater Â companies Â as Â their Â props Â master. Â During Â an Â internship Â last Â summer, Â she Â worked Â at Â an Â out-Â door Â theater Â for Â a Â summer Â stock Â festival, Â which Â entailed Â constructing, Â building Â and Â demolishing Â ÂżYHVKRZVLQZHHNV Âł,W ZDV GLIÂżFXOWÂ´ &DOO VDLG Âł7KHUH ZHUH days Â I Â didnâ€™t Â sleep Â because Â I Â was Â working Â over-Â night Â taking Â down Â a Â show Â on Â a Â Sunday Â and Â putting Â the Â next Â one Â up Â by Â Wednesday.

Teaming Up with Love INDEPENDENT NYC RECORD LABEL FINDS ITSELF IN THE HEART OF NEW PALTZ
By Â Zan Â Strumfeld A&E Â Editor Â | Â Sstrumfeld34@newpaltz.edu
Conor Â Oberst Â may Â not Â be Â living Â in Â New Â Paltz, Â but Â his Â record Â label Â is. Â Â Â Â For Â almost Â a Â year, Â Team Â Love Â RavenHouse Â Gallery Â has Â found Â a Â home Â in Â a Â small Â shop Â at Â 11 Â Church Â St.,where Â locals Â can Â visit Â an Â art Â gallery, Â record Â store Â and Â performance Â venue Â all Â in Â one Â place. Team Â Love, Â the Â New Â York Â City Â independent-Â ly Â released Â record Â label, Â was Â founded Â by Â Bright Â Eyes Â frontman Â Oberst Â and Â Bright Â Eyes Â Manager Â Nate Â Krenkel. Â Basing Â the Â label Â for Â about Â six Â years Â out Â of Â an Â apartment Â in Â the Â East Â Village, Â Krenkel Â and Â his Â wife, Â Cornelia Â â€œNellyâ€? Â Calder, Â decided Â to Â move Â out Â of Â the Â city Â with Â their Â kids. Krenkel, Â originally Â from Â Utah, Â said Â he Â came Â to Â New Â Paltz Â a Â few Â times Â to Â visit Â the Â now Â nation-Â ally-Ârecognized Â band Â The Â Felice Â Brothers, Â who Â are Â originally Â from Â the Â area. â€œOur Â sound Â guy Â for Â Bright Â Eyes Â also Â lives Â here, Â so Â Iâ€™ve Â been Â here Â a Â few Â times Â and Â other Â than Â the Â Woodstock Â area, Â Iâ€™ve Â never Â been Â anywhere Â in Â the Â Hudson Â Valley,â€? Â Krenkel Â said. Â â€œWe Â just Â came Â up Â here Â one Â day Â and Â checked Â it Â out Â and Â thought Â this Â was Â as Â good Â as Â anywhere. Â We Â decided Â this Â was Â also Â what Â we Â thought Â would Â be Â the Â best Â place Â to Â set Â up Â this Â operation.â€? The Â team Â set Â up Â shop Â in Â March Â 2011, Â two Â years Â after Â moving Â to Â New Â Paltz. Â Krenkel Â said Â
having Â a Â physical, Â creative Â space Â was Â on Â the Â top Â of Â his Â priority Â list Â from Â the Â beginning. â€œIt Â was Â like, Â â€˜Letâ€™s Â get Â out Â of Â the Â city. Â If Â we Â get Â out Â of Â the Â city Â we Â can Â do Â things Â with Â the Â la-Â bel Â we Â were Â prohibited Â from, Â like Â having Â a Â larger Â staff Â and Â physical Â space.â€™ Â A Â creative Â space Â that Â wasnâ€™t Â required Â to Â make Â a Â lot Â of Â money,â€? Â Krenkel Â said. Â â€œThat Â was Â what Â prohibited Â it Â in Â the Â city Â â€” Â you Â could Â do Â something Â like Â this Â but Â you Â would Â need Â to Â make Â a Â lot Â of Â money, Â whereas Â here, Â we Â can Â set Â a Â space Â driven Â by Â the Â creative Â impulse, Â rather Â than Â the Â impulse Â to Â make Â money.â€? While Â the Â back Â of Â the Â store Â is Â saved Â for Â man-Â agement Â criteria Â with Â Krenkel Â and Â RavenHouse Â Krenkel Â Manager Â Juan Â Luis Â Carrera, Â Krenkle Â said Â the Â storefront Â was Â created Â in Â reaction Â to Â the Â fast-Â paced Â digital Â age Â of Â music. Â He Â missed Â the Â face-Âto-Â IDFHFRPPXQLFDWLRQEHWZHHQPXVLFDÂżFLRQDGRV instead Â of Â the Â depersonalized Â online Â world. The Â experience Â of Â visiting Â a Â â€œcool, Â local Â store Â is Â going Â away Â rapidly,â€? Â Krenkel Â said. â€œIt Â started Â to Â seem Â like Â there Â was Â an Â idea Â out Â there Â of Â a Â new Â space Â that Â would Â not Â necessarily Â be Â a Â record Â store Â that Â sells Â all Â the Â records Â com-Â ing Â out Â but Â sells Â music Â and Â other Â things,â€? Â Krenkel Â said. Â â€œPeople Â can Â go Â in Â and Â have Â this Â experience Â where Â people Â can Â see Â things, Â touch Â things, Â talk Â to Â real Â people.â€? Team Â Love Â representatives Â said Â they Â are Â not Â Â trying Â to Â compete Â with Â the Â other Â record Â
stores Â in Â town. Â Instead, Â they Â want Â their Â shop Â to Â be Â an Â addition. Â The Â store Â has Â a Â limited Â selection Â of Â musicians Â that Â are Â either Â on Â the Â label, Â includ-Â ing Â A Â Weather Â and Â Tilly Â & Â the Â Wall, Â artists Â the Â label Â knows Â and Â bands Â part Â of Â RavenHouse Â LTD, Â including Â Modest Â Mouse Â and Â Monsters Â of Â Folk. Âł,WÂśVGHÂżQLWHO\DYHU\FXUDWHGVHWRIUHFRUGV You Â wouldnâ€™t Â be Â looking Â for Â the Â new Â release Â for Â ZKDWHYHUDQGFRPHLQKHUHDQGÂżQGLWÂ´.UHQNHO said. They Â also Â sell Â T-Âshirts Â of Â bands Â and Â of Â de-Â signs Â by Â local Â artists. Â Although Â the Â label Â is Â new Â to Â the Â Valley, Â Team Â Love Â is Â currently Â in Â the Â process Â of Â com-Â SOHWLQJ LWV ÂżUVW FRPPXQLW\EDVHG DOEXP DIE Â PFALZ, Â based Â on Â the Â German Â pronunciation Â of Â the Â town. Â The Â record Â will Â feature Â local Â bands, Â in Â and Â outside Â of Â New Â Paltz, Â including Â Breakfast Â in Â Fur, Â Shana Â Falana Â and Â Cycad. Â The Â record Â release Â date Â has Â recently Â been Â pushed Â back Â until Â spring Â or Â summer, Â but Â Krenkel Â said Â he Â hopes Â to Â have Â an Â album Â release Â show Â at Â a Â bar Â or Â venue Â in Â town. â€œWe Â want Â the Â album Â to Â be Â something Â the Â community Â itself Â gets Â excited Â about,â€? Â Â Krenkel Â said. According Â to Â Calder, Â the Â Team Â Love Â Raven-Â House Â Gallery Â space Â also Â lends Â itself Â to Â an Â art Â gallery. Calder Â said Â they Â have Â displayed Â the Â works Â of Â Hudson Â Valley Â artists, Â their Â friends Â and Â even Â
Thursday, Â February Â 16, Â 2012
some Â people Â on Â the Â label. Â Art Â is Â usually Â on Â dis-Â play Â for Â a Â few Â months. Â Last Â year, Â the Â gallery Â had Â a Â diorama Â show, Â which Â was Â â€œa Â great Â opportunity Â for Â a Â community Â outreach,â€? Â Calder Â said. â€œItâ€™s Â such Â an Â inviting Â set Â of Â windows Â when Â people Â walk Â by,â€? Â Calder Â said. Â â€œItâ€™s Â this Â great Â op-Â portunity Â to Â draw Â people Â in Â and Â just Â start Â the Â con-Â versation Â about Â Team Â Love Â and Â RavenHouse Â and Â what Â weâ€™re Â doing.â€? On Â Saturday, Â Feb. Â 11, Â the Â gallery Â had Â an Â opening Â reception Â for Â its Â newest Â exhibit, Â â€œThe Â Monstrous Â Among Â Us: Â Folly Â | Â Excess Â | Â Collapse,â€? Â featuring Â artist Â Paul Â Spadone. Â The Â show Â will Â be Â running Â through Â April Â 20. The Â Team Â Love Â RavenHouse Â Gallery Â will Â be Â featuring Â other Â artists Â as Â well, Â including Â a Â solo Â show Â with Â Breakfast Â in Â Furâ€™s Â Kaitlin Â Van Â Pelt Â later Â this Â year.

HIGH-SCHOOL SUPER HEROES OF ‘CHRONICLE’ FAIL TO TAKE FLIGHT By Carolyn Quimby Copy Editor | N01979729@hawkmail.newpaltz.edu
Chronicle Directed by Josh Trank
UPCOMING ALBUM RELEASES
I had been looking forward to seeing “Chronicle” for weeks after seeing its intriguing trailer. The more I heard about it, the more I wanted to see it. Superheroes? Yes. An attractive cast? Oh yes. Suspense? It sure looked like it. “Chronicle” seemed to have a lot going for it, but I left the theater with only one thought: how could a movie about À\LQJVXSHUWHHQVIDOOVRÀDW" “Chronicle” is part of the increasingly popular “found footage” genre that I cannot stand. The shaky camera movements left me feeling sea-sick, and yet, the cinema- tography in “Chronicle” is not mindless. Director Josh Trank incorporates the shooting style into the narrative and character development, but overall it was gimmicky and grating. Andrew (Dane DeHaan), one of the three superheroes, uses the camera to create distance between himself and WKHZRUOG7KH¿OPWULHVWRSRUWUD\KLPDVDV\PSDWKHWLF
character, but with little success. He becomes a manipula- tive, violent super villain who no longer deserves my sym- pathy. In fact, by the end of the movie, I actively disliked him. The other two superheroes, Andrew’s cousin Matt (Alex Russell) and Steve (Michael B. Jordan), were the main highlights of the movie. Russell made Matt, a pre- tentious, philosophy snob, into a likeable character with whom the audience sides. Jordan already established him- self as a fantastic dramatic actor on the television series “Friday Night Lights,” and this movie allowed him to pro- vide a more light-hearted, sexually-charged levity. A movie about superheroes should have pretty amazing special effects, right? Wrong. I understand that “Chronicle” did not have a budget anywhere near “The Dark Knight” or “Iron Man,” but I just cannot forgive the fact that, not only did I notice the green screen, but I was distracted by it. Not all the effects were cheesy, though. I think that they tried to make the movie larger than it need- HGWREH%HLQJDEOHWRÀ\DQGPRYHWKLQJVZLWK\RXUPLQG is cool enough. “Chronicle” is not a typical superhero movie with con- VWDQWDFWLRQVHTXHQFHVWKH¿OPEXLOGVPXFKPRUHVORZO\ I happen to love slow builds, but I don’t love when I can IHHO¿OPPDNHUVWU\LQJWRPDQLSXODWHP\IHHOLQJV)RUWX nately, “Chronicle” wasn’t able to use telekinesis on me.

AIMING Â FOR Â ACCOUNTABILITY We Â at Â The Â New Â Paltz Â Oracle Â would Â be Â fooling Â ourselves Â and Â administrators Â if Â we Â said Â President Â Donald Â Christian Â could Â walk Â through Â a Â crowded Â Hasbrouck Â Dining Â Hall Â and Â be Â recognized Â by Â every Â student. Â How-Â ever, Â our Â president Â wants Â to Â change Â that. The Â various Â discussion Â groups Â Christian Â has Â organized Â for Â students, Â faculty Â and Â staff Â prove Â he Â is Â dedicated Â to Â being Â a Â more Â open Â and Â transparent Â president Â â€” Â and Â the Â campus Â community Â should Â seize Â any Â chance Â to Â bring Â their Â concerns Â to Â his Â attention. Â After Â attending Â a Â training Â session Â for Â new Â presidents, Â Christian Â decided Â to Â start Â a Â program Â in Â residence Â halls Â that Â he Â is Â call-Â ing Â â€œHot Â Chocolate Â and Â Hot Â Topics.â€? Â Over Â the Â course Â of Â the Â semester, Â the Â president Â is Â inviting Â students Â in Â each Â building Â to Â bring Â whatever Â topic Â they Â wish Â to Â his Â attention Â in Â DQRSHQGLVFXVVLRQ7KHÂżUVWIHZVHVVLRQVLQ Crispell Â and Â Gage Â Halls Â revealed Â that Â Chris-Â tian Â isnâ€™t Â taking Â any Â items Â off Â the Â table. Â From Â complaints Â about Â advising Â to Â questions Â about Â course Â availabilty, Â Christian Â has Â listened Â to Â what Â the Â 60 Â or Â so Â students Â who Â turned Â out Â for Â the Â program Â had Â to Â say Â without Â directing Â them Â to Â someone Â else. Â This Â program Â is Â not Â the Â only Â one Â of Â its Â kind. Â Christian Â also Â developed Â a Â student Â ad-Â visory Â group Â last Â semester, Â comprised Â of Â all Â types Â of Â athletes, Â commuters, Â undergraduates, Â graduates Â and Â more, Â to Â become Â more Â in Â touch Â with Â the Â wants Â and Â needs Â of Â the Â entire Â campus Â community. Â His Â choice Â to Â include Â students Â who Â are Â in Â different Â positions Â on Â campus Â was Â DQLPSRUWDQWFKDQJHLQWKHZD\WKHRIÂżFHRI the Â president Â relates Â to Â students. Â Christian Â no Â longer Â only Â hears Â from Â elected Â Student Â Asso-Â FLDWLRQ6$ RIÂżFLDOVKHH[DPLQHVFRQFHUQV more Â directly.

To Â the Â Editor, I Â am Â somewhat Â confused Â by Â â€œOccupy Â Demands Â Not Â Met,â€? Â the Â sidebar Â piece, Â and Â â€œLibrary Â Doors Â Wonâ€™t Â Budgeâ€? Â in Â the Â Febru-Â ary Â 9, Â 2012, Â issue Â of Â The Â New Â Paltz Â Oracle. Â Â While Â the Â article, Â the Â sidebar Â and Â the Â edito-Â rial Â point Â to Â the Â real Â cooperation Â between Â the Â â€œstudents Â with Â a Â common Â goalâ€? Â group Â and Â the Â administration, Â even Â citing Â my Â admira-Â tion Â and Â respect Â for Â the Â group, Â the Â headlines Â seem Â to Â belie Â the Â collaborative Â atmosphere. Â Â
justify Â initiatives Â undertaken Â by Â student Â gov-Â HUQPHQWRIÂżFLDOVDQGKHOSFRQYLQFHDGPLQLV-Â trators Â to Â cooperatively Â assist Â them Â with Â dif-Â ferent Â projects. Â This Â wish Â may Â already Â becoming Â true, Â in Â relation Â to Â studentsâ€™ Â dissatisfaction Â with Â academic Â advising. Â SA Â Vice Â President Â of Â Academic Â Affairs Â and Â Governance Â Ayanna Â Thomas Â said Â she Â is Â working Â on Â an Â evalua-Â tion Â for Â faculty Â advisors. Â Considering Â this, Â KLV RZQ SHUVRQDO H[SHULHQFH DV DQ DGYLVRU and Â the Â concerns Â he Â has Â heard Â from Â students Â this Â far, Â Christian Â said Â he Â thinks Â this Â would Â be Â a Â great Â project. Â His Â support Â of Â this Â kind Â of Â FKDQJH LQWURGXFHG E\ VWXGHQWV UHĂ€HFWV WKDW administrators Â will Â care Â what Â we Â have Â to Â say. Â &KULVWLDQDQGRWKHUFROOHJHRIÂżFLDOVFDQ only Â listen Â to Â what Â we Â have Â to Â say, Â though, Â if Â we Â arenâ€™t Â telling Â them Â what Â is Â one Â our Â minds. Â We Â at Â The Â New Â Paltz Â Oracle Â encourage Â all Â students Â to Â take Â advantage Â of Â the Â opportuni-Â ties Â our Â president Â is Â presenting Â us Â with Â to Â talk Â to Â him. Â We Â should Â not Â complain Â that Â we Â are Â being Â closed Â out Â of Â classes Â or Â that Â our Â advising Â is Â poor Â in Â hindsight Â when Â we Â had Â the Â chance Â WRWHOOWKHVFKRROÂśVWRSRIÂżFLDOWKDWWKLQJVQHHG to Â change. Â About Â 60 Â students Â attended Â the Â ÂżUVWÂł+RW&KRFRODWHDQG+RW7RSLFVÂ´VHVVLRQ but Â many Â more Â live Â in Â the Â residence Â hall. Â We Â need Â to Â be Â active Â members Â of Â conversations Â about Â the Â direction Â this Â university Â is Â heading. Â While Â the Â president Â proved Â he Â wants Â to Â get Â students Â talking, Â we Â hope Â Christian Â will Â do Â more Â than Â just Â listen. Â We Â want Â him Â to Â act. Â Discourse Â is Â only Â valuable Â when Â it Â produces Â tangible Â change. Â Christian Â should Â take Â seri-Â ous Â note Â of Â what Â students Â have Â to Â say Â to Â him Â so Â he Â can Â introduce Â policies Â that Â meet Â their Â needs. Â If Â Christian Â and Â the Â student Â body Â take Â these Â discussions Â seriously, Â Christian Â could Â be Â recognized Â anywhere Â on Â campus Â as Â both Â the Â president Â and Â a Â catalyst Â for Â change.

â€œWe Â start Â off Â small Â and Â see Â who Â wants Â to Â go Â to Â Nationals Â to Â really Â compete,â€? Â Mullen Â said.

Aside Â from Â tournament Â preparations, Â Davidson Â said Â the Â team Â was Â also Â looking Â to Â do Â some Â heavy Â recruiting Â for Â when Â he Â and Â Mullen Â graduate. â€œThere Â was Â a Â big Â drop-Âoff Â in Â recruiting Â this Â year,â€? Â Davidson Â said. Â â€œReally Â it Â was Â because Â we Â lost Â about Â eight Â or Â nine Â members Â to Â study Â abroad Â and Â most, Â if Â not Â all Â of Â them, Â said Â they Â were Â com-Â ing Â back.â€? After Â this Â semester, Â the Â club Â will Â be Â losing Â many Â of Â its Â founding Â and Â most Â active Â members. Â The Â loss Â does Â not Â worry Â Mullen Â though. Â â€œI Â think Â every Â sort Â of Â club Â team, Â especially Â young Â ones, Â worry Â about Â a Â team Â not Â being Â able Â to Â thrive,â€? Â Mullen Â said. Â â€œHow-Â ever, Â Iâ€™m Â not Â too Â worried Â about Â it. Â Weâ€™ve Â seen Â that Â people Â really Â love Â and Â enjoy Â playing Â this Â sport, Â whether Â itâ€™s Â for Â fun Â or Â just Â competing.

tion. Â However, Â Kreider Â is Â fast Â and Â thatâ€™s Â invaluable Â to Â the Â Rangers Â at Â this Â point. Â The Â Rangers Â donâ€™t Â have Â trouble Â play-Â ing Â against Â teams Â that Â are Â very Â skilled Â and Â very Â strong, Â but Â they Â do Â struggle Â against Â teams Â that Â are Â really Â fast, Â which Â is Â probably Â why Â they Â never Â do Â so Â well Â against Â Toronto Â or Â Montreal. Â Their Â speed Â improves Â with Â Hagelin Â around, Â but Â one Â player Â is Â not Â enough Â to Â create Â a Â big Â rush Â and Â keep Â up Â with Â other Â teams. Kreider Â could Â easily Â change Â that. Â He Â said Â from Â the Â get-Âgo Â that Â he Â was Â going Â to Â stay Â at Â Boston Â College Â all Â four Â years Â (which Â could Â worry Â the Â Blue Â Jackets Â who Â probably Â want Â to Â start Â rebuilding Â as Â soon Â as Â possible), Â and Â he Â likely Â wonâ€™t Â make Â that Â huge Â plummet Â coming Â up Â on Â his Â senior Â year. Â If Â anything, Â heâ€™ll Â continue Â to Â get Â faster, Â which Â is Â something Â the Â Rang-Â ers Â need.

Â Another Â reason Â why Â some Â analysts Â are Â saying Â the Â Rangers Â should Â distance Â themselves Â from Â Nash Â is Â because Â their Â team Â chemistry Â is Â too Â good Â to Â mess Â around Â with Â at Â this Â point. Â This Â is Â a Â team Â that Â clearly Â gets Â along Â and Â their Â chemis-Â try Â could Â be Â one Â of Â their Â strongest Â assets Â against Â playoff Â competitors. Â Adding Â a Â superstar Â like Â Nash Â could Â get Â them Â more Â goals, Â but Â it Â could Â also Â upset Â the Â sync Â the Â current Â Rangers Â roster Â has Â on Â the Â ice. You Â never Â know Â whoâ€™s Â secretly Â a Â diva Â on Â the Â inside. Â The Â Rangers Â best Â play Â is Â to Â keep Â away Â from Â Nash, Â unless Â they Â can Â have Â a Â package Â which Â doesnâ€™t Â include Â a Â goalie Â (Columbus Â isnâ€™t Â going Â to Â want Â Chad Â Johnson, Â letâ€™s Â face Â it) Â and/or Â Chris Â Kreider. Â They Â may Â not Â get Â the Â elite Â goal-Âscorer, Â but Â it Â wonâ€™t Â be Â the Â end Â of Â the Â world Â either.
