BFC Seats Filled at Senate

National Arizona has made it a crime to perform an abortion because of the sex or race of the fetus. The bill, signed by Gov. Jan Brewer Tuesday, aims at doctors or other abortion providers.

Suarez to Speak at University By Andrew Wyrich Sports Editor | Andrew.Wyrich63@newpaltz.edu

Ray Suarez, “PBS News Hour” senior cor­ respondent and host of “Destination Casa Blan­ ca,” will be the latest lecturer in SUNY New Paltz’s Distinguished Speaker Series. Suarez will speak on the role media plays in disasters and how Sept. 11 changed the media culture in America on Thursday, April 7 at 7:30 p.m. in the Athletic and Wellness Center. “He is an experienced journalist with inter­ national experience, which should be of interest to our many communications majors,” Execu­ tive Director of the SUNY New Paltz Founda­ tion Sally J. Cross said. Suarez, who has over 30 years of experi­ ence in the news industry, will be SUNY New Paltz’s sixth guest in the Distinguished Speak­ ers Series, which has been hosting two guests a year since 2008. Suarez currently hosts “America Abroad,” a monthly foreign affairs radio program for Public Radio International and “Destination Casa Blanca” on Hispanic Information Tele­ communications Network, HITN TV. The journalist was chosen to speak to co­ incide with the Institute of Disaster Mental Health’s (IDMH) annual conference being held this year. The conference, titled “Lessons From Adversity: Strengthening Preparedness with !"#"$%&'()* +,'-* ./0012* 3&44* 5"* 6"47* 8%* 9"3* Paltz on April 7 to 8 and according to Cross a major theme of the conference this year will be a focus on the 10­year anniversary of the Sept. 11 attacks. “Suarez was chosen because he could ad­

During his career, Suarez also worked with National Public Radio (NPR), CNN, ABC Radio Network as well as other American and British news services and has worked on documentaries for public radio and television. Suarez has written multiple novels, his most recent being, “The Holy Vote: The Politics of Faith In America.” The novel examines the relationship be­ tween religion and American politics and the recent tighten­ ing that has taken place.

Among other SUNY universities, members of the New Paltz campus community gathered for SUNY Day to lobby to legislators in Albany, N.Y. on Monday. SUNY Day is an annual event organized by the system administration and government rela­ tions leaders where delegations made up of stu­ dents, faculty and administrators come together in an effort to bring forth ideas and concerns regarding the SUNY system, according to Chief of Staff Shelly Wright. The governor, the majority leader in the Senate, the head of the Assembly and the chairs of higher education committees are invited to participate in the event, said Wright. “Comments are made by those leaders in

relation to the current proposals on the table, such as executive budget,” said Wright. “The cuts will be a topic but it is kind of a day to showcase what SUNY does for the state of New York and have a presence.” Prior to the event, Interim President Don­ ald Christian said he and other administrators will advocate components that are part of the “SUNY­wide advocacy package for this budget cycle.” Aside from advocating their support for the rational tuition policy, Wright said they will continue to advocate their support for Gov. An­ drew Cuomo’s proposals for procurement relief for the SUNY campuses and for private­public partnerships. According to the Times Union, Cuomo’s budget would allow SUNY campuses to enter

Presidential Search Carries On By Julie Mansmann Editor­in­Chief | Jmansmann60@newpaltz.edu

Tenant Landlord Council Requests Change By Maxim Alter Managing Editor | Malter42@newpaltz.edu

Following a roundtable discussion in the beginning of March, the Village of New Paltz Tenant Landlord Rela­ #/*-0$A*"-3/.$MHNOAP$*&,3/%..E$0'-#$%$('Q"'0#$#*$#+'$2%E*($ and Village Board of Trustees to allow participation on the council from non­village residents. If the amendment were made, landlords or tenants liv­ ing a maximum of 1.5 miles outside village boundaries could be approved as members of the TLRC, which Ten­ ant Representative Ira Margolis said is currently three seats short of the seven it needs. “The problem is, when we have a group like ours, we can’t function under staff,” Margolis said. “We can’t do things unless there’s a majority vote, and the way it stands right now, there are only four of us. Unless all four agree, discussions go nowhere.” Established in 2006, Margolis said the TLRC seeks to foster and improve relationships between landlords and tenants by making recommendations to Village Board of Trustee members. But with one tenant seat and two land­ .*(1$ 0'%#0$ I%3%-#8$ /#$ +%0$ <'3*2'$ /-3('%0/->.E$ 1/&,3".#$ #*$ operate.

Currently sitting on the council are tenants Margolis and Amanda Sisenstein, as well as landlord Adele Ruger and impartial chair Richard Kleiger. Besides being a vil­ lage resident, Margolis said members must either be land­ lords or tenants and approved by trustee members. Margolis said community members residing outside of the village have been rejected in the past and if something isn’t changed soon, the TLRC could no longer exist. “It’s not like we’re a committee,” he said. “We’re a council, so we have a whole different set of operating in­ structions. If they don’t want us to function, they should just simply disband us.” While TLRC members have said there aren’t enough landlords in the required vicinity available to join, Mayor Terry Dungan said he knows eight landlords right outside his own home in the village. Dungan said he believes a major reason these landlords are being overlooked is because they are smallholders. “They have a duplex or they’re renting out two bed­ rooms in their own house,” Dungan said. “The landlords who are pushing for an amendment to allow out­of­village residents are members of a group called the New Paltz Property Association. They don’t consider that you’re a landlord unless, like them, you own multiple properties in

He said there have been va­ cancies in the Planning Board, the Zoning Board, as well as groups outside of government like the village’s softball and soccer leagues. The cause of this lack in volunteerism, he said, could be attributed to the way housing is structured within the village. “When your housing becomes largely or mostly non­ owner occupied, it greatly diminishes citizen participation in government,” he said. “It also has a lot to do with the way the economy is. People have two or three jobs, and by the time they get home, they just want to spend some time with their families. In that sense, it’s a nationwide prob­ lem.” Dungan said the proposal to allow non­village resi­ dents to participate within TLRC has been requested two previous times, both of which were denied by village board members. Margolis said he hopes the proposal will be discussed %>%/-$1"(/->$#+'$I/..%>'$<*%(1J0$,(0#$2''#/->$/-$=9(/.L

Free Tax Assistance Offered to Students By Katherine Speller Copy Editor | Katherine.Speller79@newpaltz.edu

The School of Business will once again be offering free tax assistance at SUNY New Paltz as part of an Internal Revenue Services (IRS) sponsored program known as the Volunteer Income Tax Assistance (VITA). The VITA program was established 20 years ago as a means of providing volunteers to prepare income tax returns for people who earn less than $49,000 a year for free. The program was brought to New Paltz last year to help locals with lower incomes prepare their tax return forms. During the spring 2010 semester, the 23 students involved prepared over 100 tax returns using the skills they’ve learned in their classes. “The program allows them to take the theory they have learned in their tax and accounting classes and apply it to real life clients and situations,” said Assistant Professor of Finance and Accounting Don Furman. “[It’s] a great resume builder.” Furman also said 32 students are involved in VITA this year, who he hopes will complete 200 plus returns as well as !"#$%&%'()*"++)+,+-."#'%-)/,%'(01 To be eligible for tax help, a potential client has to meet the requirement of

The Academic Senate, in cooperation with department heads, faculty and administrators, has approved the name change of two majors and the graduation requirements of another. Latin American Studies will combine with Caribbean Studies to form one comprehensive major. The Foreign Language Department will become The Department of Languages, Literature and Culture. Finally, the digital media management major, as part of the Communication and Media department, will be separated and state registered and an internship will be required to graduate. “The two areas under media have been functioning as separate concentrations. Both areas have been updated,” said Patricia Sullivan, communication and media professor. “They need to be registered at the state level as separate majors in

Alberto Aquino. Aquino said he supported this measure and he thinks it’s something “other departments should look into as well.” The idea of a name change for the Foreign Language Department had been considered for a while to better incorporate and address certain topics professors teach in the classroom. “I think the name change to the Department of Languages, Literature and Cultures is long overdue,” said Peter Brown, a professor in the Foreign Language Department. “We began proposing this years ago.

He said since we live in a time of globalization, it’s not “appropriate” anymore.

Consolidation of Latin American Studies and Caribbean Studies is aimed at drawing a larger crowd, particularly those of Caribbean descent. According to Aquino, a lot of students with Caribbean backgrounds were feeling excluded because the title didn’t include them. “I was interested in that because I’m Dominican,” Aquino said. “I didn’t feel excluded, but I wasn’t in the title.”

Proposal Possibly Cuts Pell Grants By Julie Mansmann Editor­in­Chief | Jmansmann60@newpaltz.edu

Jada Young, a second­year international relations and Black Studies major, said the burden of paying for college lies on her own !"#$%&'()*+,&-.()&"&-")*/0&12"1&3456+*15/0& cannot afford to pay out of pocket” for her schooling, Young has been able to attend college thanks to a combination of loans, scholarships and funding from the Federal Pell Grant program. But as members of Congress continue to discuss legislation that would cut the pro­ gram by approximately 24.5 percent, Young said she wonders if her brother and sister will be able to pay for higher education. “I think this proves that the idea of the ‘American dream’ is reserved for certain people and not intended for others,” she said of proposals to reduce the aid program. “These awards are extremely important to me and others who share similar socio­eco­ nomic backgrounds because they provide us with the chance to become successful in this country.” 7(#"/& (-6#*"/8& "+4& .59.585+1"1*:58& (-& 125& ;<=>& =5?& @"/1A& B*+"+#*"/&C*4& D-6#5& said they are advocating against proposals in the Full Year Continuing Appropriations Act of 2011 or H.R. 1 that would reduce funding of the Federal Pell Grant program by $5.7 billion. Congressman Maurice Hinchey (D­ Hurley) said in an appearance at SUNY New Paltz Tuesday that he’ll continue to work to stop the passage of H.R. 1, which he said included the “angering” reduction of educational programs that he said are vital. This includes cuts to the Pell Grant program which was designed to provide need­based grants that do not have to be repaid to low­ income students, according to the U.S. De­ partment of Education. The spending bill proposed by mem­ bers of the new Republican majority in the House of Representatives calls for a reduc­ tion of the maximum Pell Grant award by $845, which Hinchey said would be a “huge mistake.” “[The] proposal to cut the plan would )"$5& "--(.4*+,& #(//5,5& )(.5& 4*-6#E/1& -(.& people who are dependent on this kind of as­ sistance,” he said. “Education is the best in­ vestment that we can make as a society and F&?*//&#(+1*+E5&1(&6,21&","*+81&12585&#E18%G Hinchey said the proposal would affect 14,000 students in his 22nd congressional 4*81.*#1&?2(&.5#5*:5&12*8&6+"+#*"/&"*4&"?".4&

ed $15 billion in new funding at the time and raised maximum award levels. Hinchey said the new Republican ma­ jority should not seek to undo the progress made in recent years in expanding educa­ tional opportunities. Citing expenditures for the Iraq war and the approval of tax cuts for businesses that move manufacturing operations outside of the US, Hinchey said the GOP should stop engaging in wasteful spending practices and start focusing on ed­ ucational and other internal programs. “This is just another example of the recklessness of the Republican spending plan,” he said. “They want to keep tax cuts for billionaires and huge subsidies for oil companies ­ all of those are staying in place.

The New Paltz Oracle CAMPUS LECTURE

Prominent Writer Comes to College AWARD-WINNING INVESTIGATIVE REPORTER DISCUSSES WIKILEAKS

By Andrew Wyrich Sports Editor | Andrew.wyrich63@newpaltz.edu

As part of the Ottaway seminar, Emmy­award winning guest professor John Larson invited New York Times reporter Andy Lehren to speak to jour­ nalism students and faculty on Wednesday, May 30. Lehren, who was The New York Times lead reporter on the development of WikiLeaks and following stories, sifted through close to a million documents. Through his work, he was assigned to understand, correlate, search and analyze the as­ sorted materials acquired by The New York Times in July 2010. Larson said he asked Lehren to speak to stu­ dents, comprised of the Ottaway class and others enrolled in various journalism courses, because of the close relationship they developed while work­ ing together on various award­winning stories. “Some of the most endearing moments over my career are with Andy,” Larson said. “I couldn’t have approached [the awards] without the amazing work he has done.” Lehren began his lecture by explaining the situation he was put in when Julian Assange, the director of WikiLeaks, released secret documents to various major publications across the globe. !"#$%&'($)&*+,-.)$*/$0*1+2#.('$(*(34#0$567888$ and contained information regarding the war in Af­ )"3.-'(3.$%4#0$9:$'*40-#&'$39*+($3.:$)-;#.$03:<$$=1­ cording to Lehren, The New York Times Editor Bill >#44#&$ 3,,*-.(#0$ "-2$ (*$ 9#$ ("#$ %&'($ ,#&'*.$ (*$ )*$ through the documents and was sworn to secrecy. Lehren said he spent his Fourth of July week­ end looking through the documents hoping to gather information, which would eventually lead to a story analyzing how many civilians died during the war. However, after looking at the information, Lehren said he realized the documents were an incomplete set. Missing from the situation reports was information regarding former NFL player Pat !-423.?'$ 0#3("$ /&*2$ /&-#.04:$ %&#$ 3.0$ *("#&$ "-)"$ ,&*%4#$-.1-0#.('<$ “The story we were talking about wasn’t going to work,” Lehren said. “The records were incom­ ,4#(#@$("#&#$A3'$3$4*($/&*2$6885$3.0$*.4:$'*2#$-.$ 2008.” However, Lehren said the documents did give evidence of Afghani citizens cooperating with the United States military and if names of those in­ volved were made public their lives could be jeop­ ardized.

“I was actually looking at something that could endanger someone’s life,” Lehren said.

In October 2010, approximately 400,000 doc­ uments relating to the Iraq War were released to the The New York Times and other outlets, which Lehren said was more complete than those received about the Afghanistan War as there were no huge )3,'$/&*2$688GH6885<$ By analyzing the newly acquired set of re­ cords, Lehren said he was able to see the scale of 100,000 deaths during the war and was able to give readers a broader perspective of what the docu­ ments presented. Finally, Lehren spoke to members of the au­ dience about the diplomatic cables released by the New York Times in Nov. 2010. The cables, while not top secret, showed information from 274 United States Embassies from around the world. Lehren and the team of reporters had a nine day series regarding the cables that focused on the most important information to a broad audience. “We were trying to let the information speak /*&$-('#4/7I$F#"&#.$'3-0<$JD#$A#&#$34'*$(&:-.)$(*$%.0$ the things you didn’t know.” The United States Government was in contact with reporters throughout the process, but Lehren stressed that only instances where lives were in danger were not published in articles. Third­year public relations major Rhianna Hercules said she enjoyed learning more about WikiLeaks after attending Lehren’s talk. “I thought it was very interesting to get the perspective of the writer,” Hercules said. “I wasn’t too familiar with WikiLeaks and through this semi­ nar, I found out a lot about it and how others, like New Paltz professors, felt about it.”

Sex for the Right Reasons

DISCUSSION GROUP MEETS TO TALK ABOUT CULTURE OF CONSENT AND SEXUALITY By Jaleesa Baulkman Features Editor | Jbaulkman75@newpaltz.edu

Sitting in a circle with a group of six college students at Hasbrouck Park on March 18 during her third Culture of Consent meeting, Tracy Weider said she had never taken the time to think about whether or not the way she handled sex was good for her. “I had been very sexually active but had not realized my relationship to sex,” she said. “The way I approached it was unhealthy.” This was just one of several state­ ments made at the “The Culture of Con­ sent” discussion group hosted by Wei­ der, a fourth­year geography major and environmental studies minor. The Culture of Consent discus­ sions were created to get students to think about their partner’s and their own boundaries, wants and desires. They aim to teach others how to have sex for the right reasons, something that most people don’t think about until those questions are raised, said Weider. “There’s the struggle to be an ob­ ject of desire and to be vocal about your boundaries,” said Weider. “Because you don’t want to disappoint the person you’re with.”

Weider was prompted to start these discussions after a friend showed her an online zine titled “Learning Good Consent.” This zine is a compilation of different articles about sex. They in­ clude short stories, personal stories and outlines from consent workshops. The zine has made a positive difference in

Student Healthcare Crisis

STUDENTS EXPRESS ILL WILL OVER HEALTH CENTER’S APPOINTMENT PROCESS By Kathy Kim Contributing Writer | N01851328@newpaltz.edu

Being sick in college is quite the pain for many students. Your mother isn’t there to tend to your needs, to drive you to your doctor and make you chicken noodle soup.

He called the center the next day and spoke with a staff member who said that they would look into it, but nothing was done. “The Health Center should be serving student’s health needs, but it seems that they are more concerned with student’s manners,” said Harris. According to Lori Mitchell, the nurse man­

Alumnus Seeks Village Trustee Position SUNY NEW PALTZ GRADUATE EMILY CROCETTI HOPES TO IMPROVE HER COMMUNITY

By Andrew Limbong Contributing Writer | Alimbong23@newpaltz.edu

Despite graduating from SUNY New Paltz in May 2010, Emily Crocetti has remained in the community she loves. With the needs of students and residents in mind, she said she hopes to use her experiences to foster a better relationship between community members by running for a trustee seat in the up­ coming village election. “The walls need to be taken down, and there needs to be more cohesion between the groups,” said Crocetti. After earning her bachelor’s degree in his­ tory, Crocetti said she hopes to save up some money to go back to SUNY New Paltz for a mas­ ter’s degree in education. “I’m not just living here to live here. This isn’t just the land I’m on – it’s the land I’m in,” said Crocetti. Crocetti works at the Groovy Blueberry and has been working there since her freshman year at SUNY New Paltz. In that time, she’s formed a relationship with store owner Jonathan Cohen, who is seeking the mayoral position up for grabs. They are running together on the Groovy Blue­ berry ticket. Cohen ran for mayor in 2007, but lost. He was a write­in candidate because all of his peti­

tion signatures, which he handed in as early as possible, were scrutinized and didn’t make the ballot. Crocetti said Cohen is also striving for more cohesion between the students and residents of the New Paltz village. He’s hoping more students will get involved with the inner workings of gov­ ernment. “Unlike most adults, he’s willing to listen,” Crocetti said. According to Crocetti, students are the economic lifeline and bloodline of the village. There’s no reason the community and the stu­ dents can’t work together to strengthen that bond. She said with the right amount of commu­ nication, businesses in the village could take ad­ vantage of this surge of people, and make some decent money. However, Crocetti said there are tougher is­ sues to mediate, like the noise ordinance and the village’s budget. That’s where the work comes in. Crocetti said that she has spent the last three months burying herself in the village govern­ ment’s documents. “That way I’ll be able to hit the ground run­ ning,” said Crocetti. Village elections will be held on May 3, at the Fire Department meeting room in Village Hall from noon to 9 p.m.

CLOSING DORSKY EXHIBIT SHOWED EMOTIONAL CONNECTIONS TO PEOPLE AND THEIR HOMES By Roberto Cruz Contributing Writer | N01828592@newpaltz.edu

On March 18, SUNY New Paltz started its spring break, which gave many students a chance to return home, re­unite with old friends and visit familiar places. It also marked the closing of “Thoughts of Home,” an exhibit at The Dorsky featuring a collec­ tion of photographs that focus on the home as a place of great emo­ tional experience. “Thoughts of Home” opened to students and the public on Aug. 18, 2010. The exhibit was comprised of 41 photographs on loan from the Center for Photography at Woodstock, showcas­ ing people and their homes. Arts Collections Manager and Cura­ tor Wayne Lempka organized the event, and he said the photos are meant to evoke a wide range of emotions that people can relate to. “Home is a refuge,” said Lempka. “It’s a place to get away from the craziness of daily existence.” As a curator, Lempka is responsible for picking the theme of the exhibit and proving why the theme is important. Lempka was in charge of looking through the 15,000 photos on loan to The Dorsky, and choosing the ones he felt most effectively captured different aspects of life from around the country. The exhibit was made up of color print, and gelatin silver !"#$%&!'(%()*&+',&!#-%.",)&-/!%.",0&)!,-#1-&2(2,$%)&#$&%#2,3&4#5,&/& woman washing her hair in the kitchen, and a family at Thanksgiv­ ing dinner.

To Lempka, these photos allow us to see the scope of humanity. “Every photo is full of stories,” said Lempka. “These photos allow us to stop, smile, laugh and feel sorry. They show how our homes act like a bulletin board.” Lempka said the photos displayed in the exhibit are aimed at )'(6#$7&'(6&/&!,")($=)&,$>#"($2,$%&-/$&0#",-%4?&",<,-%&6'(&%',?& are. This became a popular trend among late 20th century photog­ raphers. “In the ‘80s, and even dating back to the 1960s, photographers began to focus on the familiar,” said Lempka. “Photographers and artists were afraid that the advancements in technology were creat­ ing a lonely existence.” Lempka said the exhibition was planned three years ahead of time, and took two months to produce. He and his staff of graduate students, assistants and interns needed to mat, frame and place the photos in very precise ways around the gallery. Lempka also used quotes from a 1998 independent study entitled “What Does Home Mean to You?” The quotes were placed between pictures on the walls in a gray print. Two of the quotes were “home is somewhere to shut out the rest of the world,” and “home is family.” Lempka said he has really enjoyed the experience of bringing '#)&>#)#($&%(&4#9,*&@#)&(91-,&)#%)&"#7'%&/A(>,&%',&7/44,"?3&/$0&',&)/#0&

He said home is a place he can go for any­ thing. Cali said he enjoyed the exhibit, especially one particular picture. “There was a picture of Lou Reed and Andy Warhol sitting together in a room that was really cool,” said Cali. Second­year undeclared Liana Ryans works with Cali at the museum. They stand guard at a distance, keeping an eye on the spectators, making sure nobody touches the artwork. “To me, my home is where I feel most safe,” said Ryans. “It’s a place where I can be calm, and it’s a place I can relax.” When Lempka began working at SUNY New Paltz 13 years

ago, The Dorsky didn’t exist. Like photography, SUNY New Paltz has gone through many changes throughout the years. Lempka said he is proud of the diversity of the exhibitions in The Dorsky, and he wants students to know they are given an incredible resource and they should take advantage of it. “It’s not just for art students,” Lempka said. “You could know nothing about art and enjoy this exhibit. Stop in, and enjoy it.

The Dorsky Sets Up for Spring MUSEUM HOSTS COMEDIC TOUR AND OPENS TWO NEW EXHIBITS FOR END OF SEMESTER By Rachel Freeman Copy Editor | Rachel.freeman17@newpaltz.edu

The Dorsky will be hosting a comedy event and featur­ ing two new exhibitions at the end of March and beginning of April. On April 5 at 5 p.m., the “Fancy Meeting You Here” com­ edy troupe will be leading a tour of The Dorsky exhibit, “The Illustrious Mr. X.” “Fancy Meeting You Here” is a New York based group of art lovers who give comedic museum tours in their spare time !"#$%&'($)"*'+,#$#-*".$'-$!($/+,$0,(1-2-3*(!"$0&',&4$-5$61(7$ They have also performed at museums in Berlin, London and Amsterdam. “People tend to be intimidated by museums, make fun of museums, same thing with art,” Dorsky Curator Brian Wallace said. “It makes people feel comfortable by making fun of ev­ erything.” The event is free and is “not just for art students, but for anyone who has ever laughed at an artwork.” On March 30, the Dorsky will open an award­winning new exhibit called “The Upstate New York Olympics” by photogra­ pher and poet Tim Davis. The exhibit is a series of videos of Davis performing vari­ ous goofy actions in different upstate locations, such as doing 30 lawn jockey leap frogs and jumping into a forsythia bush.

Elephant Six Surprises With Holiday Tour MUSICAL COLLECTIVE BRINGS SPRING AND HAPPINESS TO NEW YORK CITY WITH MUSIC AND FUN By Zan Strumfeld A&E Editor | Sstrumfeld34@newpaltz.edu

For those of you who don’t know these animals, Elephant Six is a recording collective for bands like Neutral Milk Hotel (NMH), of Montreal and Olivia Tremor Control. Members of the groups tend to bounce around and form other bands within the collective – blending into a melting pot of a shit­ton of great sub­bands like Circulatory System, The Music Tapes and Elf Power. Unfortunately, most of these bands have either broken up or stopped going on tour, so the Holiday Surprise Tour brought together certain members of the collective to perform songs from many of the bands.

The second set began with an unusual game; a huge snow­ man stood at the corner of the stage and NMH/The Music Tapes’ Julian Koster explained that spring needed to come to New York City and the only way to make it happen was to help the snow­ man throw a snowball at the moon. This was done by throwing a small, white ball with a lacrosse­like stick into the “moon.” Koster let a few audience members try, but they all failed.

One of the best parts of the show was Koster’s performance. The collective would play together for some songs, but also break

up into smaller or individual groups for others. Koster, who plays the singing­saw and banjo, among others, took my breath away. On one song, he told a long story about his Romanian circus an­ cestry who performed an act where they would pull dehydrated European cities from their mouths (imagination is key here). He said the only way to spread the code of the act was through song, so he took his banjo and played it with a violin bow.

Plus, many Elephant Sixers thought the mysterious Jeff Mangum (NMH vocalist/gui­ tarist/writer) would perform at both shows. He didn’t. Mangum has been keeping to himself for years, especially after the suc­ cess of NMH, but has slowly begun to show up again in the music world. He was there, however, (and stood next to me for almost 10 minutes), but didn’t surprise the audience with a song. Regardless, the shows were incredible. In the end, I really just wish I could hop on their tour and hang out with them. Al­ though they’re all well into their ‘30s and ‘40s, I think we’d be great friends.

According to Hadley Keohane, a part of ViCE publicity, the college tried an online poll with a list of musical acts to choose from. “of Montreal was one of the choices. It wasn’t the

After winning the NJCAA National Championship at her last school, Dewey said she plans on bringing her winning ways to the New Paltz lacrosse program.

By Nick Monaco Contributing Writer | N02148569@newpaltz.edu

After having 4­11 record in the 2010 spring season, the New Paltz Women’s La­ crosse team will look to Captain Gabrielle Dewey for some spark during the team’s current campaign. Dewey, a fourth­year defender, trans­ ferred from Onondaga Community College in fall 2009. After winning the National Ju­ nior College Athletic Association (NJCAA) National Championship at her last school, Dewey said she plans on bringing her win­ ning ways to the young New Paltz lacrosse program. “Playing here is much different than at Onondaga,” said Dewey. “We are all fo­ cused on showing everyone and ourselves that we are a great team and that we’re get­ ting better every day.” Last season, Dewey started in 15 games for the Hawks and caused 16 turnovers over

the course of the season. She also scored mously by her teammates because of her two goals and one work ethic on and assist from her de­ !""#$%&#'#&()* fensive position. “She has very Even with these strong leader­ numbers, Dewey ship qualities and and her teammates strives for this know she has the team to be the potential to be best,” said Semel­ even better. macher. “Even “I don’t let in the off­season, myself slack off Gabby was always during workouts working on keep­ or practices,” said ing the girls play­ Dewey. “I push ing and keeping myself and en­ them in shape.” courage my team Aside from her to do the same.” work ethic, Se­ Head Coach melmacher praised Heather Semelm­ Dewey’s stick skill acher, who is in and overall level of her third year coaching the program, said play.

After coming off a season where the Hawks played sub­par defensively, Semel­ macher will look to Dewey to control the young group of defenders.

Tennis Team Aces Florida Tournament

The Women’s Tennis team traveled to Florida and competed in the “Spring Break Sports” program over spring break, only losing to Colby College.

By Cat Tacopina Copy Editor | Ctacopina97@newpaltz.edu

With spring break then approach­ ing, the New Paltz tennis team was not thinking of relaxing.While they would be traveling to Florida, they were more focused on the competition that they would be facing there. The team left early on the Friday be­ fore break started to head south to com­ pete. Through a program called “Spring Break Sports,” the team matched up against the University of Wisconsin­Os­ hkosh, Colby College, Merrimack Col­ lege and Colorado College while only seeing defeat against Colby. Before the trip, Head Coach Rob Bruley was already looking toward the !"#$%&'()*#%(&+$*#&!&,#(",-($.,/(-&,$&0( “‘Spring Break Sports’ is probably the number one tennis organization,” said Bruley. “We decided to go to Orlan­ do because there are better teams down there as opposed to Puerto Rico.” The trip marked the beginning of the spring season for the Lady Hawks, one with a schedule that is “much tougher ",-(!1$%(!.2&(-*3/($14#5(#%",(4"'#(6&"27'(

fall schedule. This season the team will not face any other SUNYAC schools and will instead play against other Division III schools from the northeastern region. While the team understands that this will be a tougher season, they look forward #.(*#()*#%($.,/(-&,$&0 “We’re excited,” said second­year player Montana Wilson. “We like to be challenged and this is going to be good.” Bruley echoed this sentiment. “They like to be challenged, they don’t like playing easy matches,” said Bruley. “In some ways, they would rather lose 9­0 against a very, very, very good team than win 9­0 against a team where they don’t even need to break a sweat.” Although the team did get to relax and enjoy some recreational time while on their spring break, the matches they had were their main focus. The level of their opposition was “very strong” and provided the team with motivation to get ahead early. The team came back with a 3­1 record that was the result of intense indoor workouts during the winter. “Prior to spring break we had three

weeks of indoor training to prepare for the tough four matches, but there is no substitute to playing matches,” said Bruley. “These matches will help each player to get back into the swing of play­ ing, help with their timing, footwork and conditioning, and belief that they can win in tight situations.” These matches will also prepare New Paltz for their two biggest tourna­ ments of the season. The team was invit­ ed to a tournament hosted by Wellesey College and they will also be participat­ ing in the NCAA Division III Women’s Tennis Championships in May. Bruley said the team was “honored” to be in­ vited. 89%&2&("2&(":.1#(3.12(.2(/(;&('$%..4'( who will be there that are all nationally­ ranked,” said Bruley. “We were invited

Buchholz’s deal includes performance based incentives that could drive the deal to $1.1 million and should something go wrong this season for the reliever, the Mets are not contractually obligated to him beyond this year. However, if things go right, the Mets may have found a potential steal this offseason. Many fans seem to forget that only a few years ago Buchholz was one of the National League’s most dominant and exciting relief pitchers.

Before his spectacular 2008 season, Buch­ holz was a top prospect that was expected to be a dominant pitcher. In 2003 Buchholz was part of the deal that sent all­star closer Billy Wagner to the Phillies from the Astros and was eventual­ ly called up by Houston during the 2006 season. For the 2007 season, the highly regarded pitcher was sent to Colorado in a trade that sent

A New Beginning For Buchholz

Taylor Buchholz has pitched well this spring and could be a potential steal for the Mets.

Jason Jennings to the pitching starved Astros. Buchholz’s career took a tragic turn in 2009, missing the entire season as he recovered from Tommy John surgery. Over the 2010 sea­ son Buchholz bounced from the Rockies, Blue Jays and Red Sox – being picked up on waivers and only having small chances to prove himself healthy after the surgery. However, Alderson realized that the once highly­regarded pitcher was available and would be willing to prove that he could return to his 2008 dominance on a cheap deal. So far, Buchholz has done nothing but im­

press the Mets. So far this spring, Buchholz has pitched 15 scoreless innings, striking out 10 and only walking three. Buchholz’s performance has made him a lock for the Opening Day roster and if he continues to pitch effectively, could blos­ som into a set up man for Francisco Rodriguez. While this is only a small sample of innings to make assumptions off of, the potential Buch­ holz has is exciting. If Buchholz is able to recap­ ture the ability that made him such an effective relief pitcher, the Mets’ bullpen suddenly seems much stronger.

New Paltz Gains In Commissioner’s Cup By Cat Tacopina Copy Editor | Ctacopina97@newpaltz.edu

At the completion of the winter season, New Paltz athletic teams are third in the SU­ NYAC Commissioner’s Cup standings. “This is the highest the school has ever been,” said the tennis team’s Coach Rob Bruley. “It’s based on how well you do in your sport and it also works on percentages because we don’t participate in every sport, so it’s worked on the percentages of sports that you do play in.” Last year, New Paltz landed the sixth place spot after all three seasons. The pro­ gram had a total of 79 points with an aver­ age of 5.64 points per sport. As of right now, New Paltz has 72.5 points while averaging 6.59 points per sport. Teams are given points based on how well they do in their sport during the regu­ lar season and the post­season.

New Paltz’s current position in the Cup standings can be attributed to the success that many of the school’s athletic programs have had within the past year. “We’ve had a very suc­ cessful fall season and then that continued on in the win­ ter with both the Men’s and Women’s Basketball teams and Women’s Swimming as well,” said Bruley. This past year has seen a surge in New Paltz sports as they have become a force to be reckoned with by other schools in the SUNYAC.
