Â Christian, Â the Â eighth Â president Â of Â SUNY Â New Â Paltz, Â on Â Friday, Â April Â 13. Â Christian Â previously Â served Â as Â provost Â and Â vice Â presi-Â dent Â of Â academic Â affairs Â for Â the Â 2009-Â10 Â academic Â year Â and Â began Â serving Â as Â interim Â president Â in Â July Â 2010. Â The Â Presidential Â Search Â Committee Â appointed Â Christian Â in Â June Â 2012 Â succeeding Â former-ÂPresident Â Steven Â Poskanzer. Â â€œU.S. Â higher Â education Â is Â a Â grand Â ecosystem Â with Â responsibilities Â and Â commitments Â expanding Â beyond Â the Â reach Â of Â our Â individual Â campuses,â€? Â Christian Â said. Â â€œI Â tip Â my Â hat Â to Â the Â seven Â past Â presidents Â here Â at Â New Â Paltz Â â€” Â my Â aim Â is Â to Â build Â on Â your Â legacy Â and Â leave Â this Â great Â col-Â lege Â even Â greater Â than Â it Â is Â today.â€? Â Lori Â DuBord, Â New Â Paltz Â alumna Â and Â district Â represen-Â tative, Â read Â a Â letter Â at Â the Â inauguration Â on Â behalf Â of Â New Â York Â State Â Assemblyman Â Maurice Â Hinchey. Â In Â his Â letter, Â Hinchey Â noted Â Christianâ€™s Â achievements Â from Â the Â past Â year Â and Â his Â background, Â framing Â the Â theme Â of Â the Â instal-Â
lation Â ceremony. Â â€œIn Â your Â short Â time Â here, Â Mr. Â President, Â you Â have Â made Â an Â indelible Â impression Â on Â the Â New Â Paltz Â campus Â and Â the Â community Â at Â large,â€? Â Hinchey Â said. Â â€œYour Â Mid-Â western Â sensibility Â helped Â guide Â you Â and Â the Â campus Â through Â a Â federally Â declared Â disaster Â and Â enabled Â you Â to Â develop Â a Â budget Â that Â made Â sure Â the Â liberal Â arts Â tradition Â ZDVHQVXUHGGXULQJWKHVHGLIÂżFXOWHFRQRPLFWLPHVÂ´ Christian Â used Â lessons Â he Â learned Â from Â his Â aunt Â and Â uncleâ€™s Â dairy Â farm Â in Â Ohio Â to Â illustrate Â his Â commitment Â to Â the Â college Â and Â the Â work Â necessary Â to Â meet Â his Â goals. Â â€œThese Â include Â things Â like Â the Â value Â of Â hard Â work, Â the Â LPSRUWDQFHRIFRRSHUDWLRQRIÂżQGLQJUHZDUGLQERWKWKH process Â of Â our Â work Â and Â the Â product Â of Â recognizing Â that Â sometimes Â a Â dayâ€™s Â work Â will Â include Â walking Â through Â ma-Â nure, Â or Â shoveling Â it,â€? Â Christian Â said. He Â did Â this Â while Â weaving Â his Â metaphor Â with Â his Â leadership Â views, Â the Â strength Â and Â values Â of Â the Â campus, Â the Â national Â context Â of Â New Â Paltz Â and Â his Â thoughts Â about Â student Â education Â and Â success. Â Overall, Â Christian Â said Â his Â goal, Â as Â well Â as Â the Â single Â most Â important Â challenge, Â is Â stu-Â dent Â education. Â â€œWe Â are Â all Â teachers, Â students Â learn Â from Â all Â of Â us Â

Â â€œThis Â process Â will Â be Â consultative, Â drawing Â on Â the Â creativity Â and Â experience Â of Â our Â talented Â and Â diverse Â com-Â munity,â€? Â Christian Â said.

After Â installing Â a Â printer Â in Â the Â Student Â Union, Â members Â of Â the Â Student Â Association Â (SA) Â and Â Academic Â Computing Â are Â looking Â to Â install Â printers Â in Â other Â areas Â on Â campus. Earlier Â this Â semester, Â the Â student Â senate Â set Â a Â goal Â that Â each Â residence Â hall Â on Â campus Â have Â printers Â installed Â in Â their Â computer Â labs. Â This Â ini-Â tiative Â was Â spearheaded Â by Â Sen. Â Ramelle Â Liver-Â pool. Â â€œWe Â should Â have Â printers Â in Â our Â [residence Â halls] Â especially Â when Â [thereâ€™s Â already] Â a Â com-Â puter Â lab Â in Â there,â€? Â Liverpool Â said. Â Assistant Â Director Â of Â Academic Â Computing Â Lura Â Speth Â said Â she Â will Â be Â purchasing Â printers Â for Â this Â initiative Â within Â the Â next Â couple Â of Â months Â and Â she Â plans Â to Â start Â installing Â them Â over Â the Â summer Â break. Â These Â actions Â are Â the Â result Â of Â the Â student Â senate Â and Â the Â responses Â Academic Â Computing Â received Â from Â a Â survey Â given Â in Â spring Â 2010 Â re-Â garding Â this Â issue, Â Speth Â said. Â Speth, Â who Â has Â worked Â on Â the Â initiative Â for Â nearly Â two Â years, Â said Â Academic Â Computing Â sent Â out Â a Â survey Â to Â students Â and Â the Â majority Â that Â re-Â sponded Â said Â they Â would Â like Â to Â see Â printers Â in-Â stalled Â in Â residence Â halls Â on Â campus. Â â€œAs Â far Â as Â I Â know, Â the Â printers Â will Â be Â located Â LQWKH5$RIÂżFHDQGVWXGHQWVZLOOEHDEOHWRSULQW during Â RA Â hours,â€? Â Speth Â said. Although Â Liverpool Â is Â pushing Â for Â 24-Âhour Â printing, Â she Â said Â these Â installations Â would Â be Â con-Â venient Â for Â students Â because Â they Â wouldnâ€™t Â have Â to Â leave Â their Â residence Â halls. Â She Â said Â since Â not Â all Â students Â have Â access Â to Â Â printing Â in Â their Â halls, Â Â
making Â improvements Â to Â the Â campus Â drives Â walk-Â ways. Although Â the Â project Â will Â eventually Â improve Â travel Â on Â campus, Â some Â students Â are Â more Â focused Â on Â the Â short-Âterm Â implications, Â as Â parking Â and Â foot Â travel Â have Â been Â disrupted Â on Â the Â north Â end Â of Â Â campus. Â â€œI Â used Â to Â park Â in Â the Â handicap Â spaces Â right Â outside Â of Â the Â Haggerty Â Administration Â Building Â [HAB],â€? Â Christina Â Holtzberger, Â fourth-Âyear Â visual Â arts Â major, Â said.

A Â representative Â of Â Sodexo Â Inc., Â SUNY Â New Â Paltzâ€™s Â current Â food-Âservice Â provider, Â confronted Â students Â gathered Â in Â the Â Student Â Union Â (SU) Â on Â Monday, Â April Â 9.

According Â to Â SCI Â President Â Robert Â LoBianco, Â SCI Â members Â are Â displeased Â with Â Sodexo Â Inc. Â as Â a Â food Â provider Â and Â are Â opposed Â to Â renewing Â a Â contract Â with Â them. The Â purpose Â of Â the Â meetings Â was Â to Â gauge Â student Â feedback Â on Â the Â dining Â experience Â on Â campus, Â Sodexo Â spokesperson Â En-Â rico Â Dinges Â said. Â Sixty Â students Â registered Â for Â the Â event Â and Â were Â split Â into Â groups Â for Â meetings Â at Â different Â time Â blocks. Â Sodexo Â Inc.

Â â€œThere Â is Â no Â accountability, Â and Â no Â oversight,â€? Â he Â said. â€œWe Â do Â actually Â source Â a Â lot Â of Â products Â locally Â â€Ś Â that Â help Â support Â the Â local Â economy,â€? Â Dinges Â said Â in Â an Â interview Â with Â the Â Daily Â Freeman. Â Â LoBianco Â said Â he Â wanted Â to Â stress Â the Â fact Â that Â the Â â€œlocalâ€? Â businesses Â that Â Sodexo Â is Â being Â supplied Â by Â includes Â a Â Pepsi Â Co. Â which Â is Â located Â within Â Ulster Â County. Â He Â said Â there Â have Â been Â dozens Â of Â complaints Â from Â Sodexo Â employees Â worldwide. Â Â In Â a Â press Â release Â from Â the Â TransAfrica Â Forum, Â workers Â com-Â plained Â about Â separate Â and Â unequal Â treatment Â between Â employees Â of Â different Â races Â or Â ethnicities: A Â Sodexo Â warehouse Â worker Â from Â Guniea Â claimed Â the Â em-Â ployees Â of Â European Â descent Â are Â always Â well Â fed Â and Â taken Â care Â of, Â but Â he Â and Â others Â of Â his Â descent Â sometimes Â show Â up Â to Â work Â and Â are Â given Â nothing Â to Â eat. Â A Â company Â in Â Columbia Â being Â supplied Â by Â Sodexo Â was Â given Â spoiled Â food Â leading Â to Â more Â than Â 60 Â workers Â contracting Â food Â poisoning. Â Â A Â Sodexo Â employee Â in Â Morocco Â said Â in Â the Â report Â that Â he Â and Â his Â co-Âworkers Â fear Â their Â employer.

New Â Paltz Â Chosen Â For Â EPA Â Sustainable Â Program By Â Clarissa Â Moses Â Copy Â Editor Â | Â Cmoses59@hawkmail.newpaltz.edu
New Â Paltz Â was Â named Â by Â the Â Environmental Â Protection Â Agency Â (EPA) Â as Â one Â of Â the Â 13 Â nationwide Â communities Â to Â be Â part Â of Â their Â Sustainable Â Materials Â Management Â (SMM) Â program. Â â€œSustainable Â materials Â management Â is Â a Â corner-Â stone Â of Â any Â sustainability Â program,â€? Â Kimiko Â Link, Â environmental Â scientist Â at Â United Â States Â Environmental Â Protection Â Agency Â (USEPA) Â Region Â 2, Â said. Â â€œA Â SMM Â approach, Â combined Â with Â a Â sustainable Â energy, Â sustain-Â able Â food Â and Â sustainable Â water Â approach Â will Â help Â pre-Â serve Â our Â precious Â natural Â resources, Â improve Â health, Â strengthen Â our Â economy Â and Â build Â resilience Â for Â the Â future.â€? The Â SMM Â program Â is Â aiming Â to Â serve Â human Â needs Â by Â using Â and Â reusing Â resources Â most Â productively Â and Â sustainably Â from Â extraction Â to Â disposal. Â The Â SMM Â approach Â seeks Â to Â minimize Â the Â amount Â of Â materials Â involved Â and Â all Â associated Â environmental Â impacts, Â as Â

Â In Â order Â to Â promote Â nationwide Â awareness Â and Â change, Â one Â municipality Â per Â EPA Â region Â was Â chosen Â to Â participate Â in Â the Â program. Â New Â Paltz Â was Â recruited Â as Â the Â New Â York Â community Â from Â USEPA Â Region Â two Â to Â be Â a Â part Â of Â the Â program, Â Link Â said.

Â Drummond Â said Â some Â of Â the Â events Â the Â club Â has Â already Â hosted, Â such Â as Â awareness Â events Â and Â the Â RecycleMania Â pro-Â gram, Â promote Â recycling Â on Â campus Â and Â educate Â stu-Â dents Â about Â sustainability. â€œHaving Â people Â know Â their Â resources Â will Â prob-Â DEO\EHWKHPRVWGLIÂżFXOWÂ´'UXPPRQGVDLGÂł7KHUHDUH so Â many Â different Â resources Â out Â there Â that Â are Â just Â not Â really Â known.

Link Â said Â the Â EPA Â is Â hopeful Â this Â program Â will Â inform Â the Â community Â about Â the Â effects Â and Â costs Â of Â current Â approaches Â to Â materials Â management Â and Â addi-Â tional Â options Â available. The Â EPA Â has Â extended Â the Â SMM Â program Â to Â other Â communities Â and Â individuals Â who Â are Â not Â directly Â in-Â volved Â by Â developing Â sustainable-Âtype Â challenges Â in Â which Â people Â can Â demonstrate Â how Â the Â Â U.S. Â can Â move Â toward Â a Â greener Â future. Â The Â challenges Â include Â the Â Federal Â Green Â Challenge, Â the Â Food Â Recovery Â Challenge Â and Â the Â Electronics Â Challenge. â€œThe Â sustainability Â phenomenon Â has Â rippled Â throughout Â the Â community Â through Â public Â support Â and Â information Â that Â the Â EPA Â brought Â in Â through Â network-Â ing, Â workshops Â and Â the Â creation Â of Â programs Â (real Â pro-Â grams, Â not Â just Â meetings Â and Â talk),â€? Â Petit Â said. Â â€œThere Â will Â be Â a Â food Â waste Â program, Â backyard Â composting Â initiative, Â more Â aggressive Â recycling Â and Â compliance Â efforts, Â and Â hands Â on Â inspecting Â of Â what Â is Â being Â thrown Â out Â versus Â what Â should Â have Â been Â recycled Â or Â diverted.â€?

Â The Â documentary Â was Â followed Â by Â a Â panel Â discussion Â where Â the Â 41 Â students Â and Â faculty Â in Â attendance Â asked Â ques-Â tions Â about Â weight Â and Â mental Â health Â to Â members Â of Â the Â Eat-Â ing Â Disorders Â Awareness Â Committee Â including Â Dr. Â Gweneth Â Lloyd Â of Â the Â Psychological Â Counseling Â Center, Â the Â campusâ€™ Â registered Â dietitian Â and Â nutritionist, Â Evelyn Â Gezo Â and Â Dr. Â Richard Â Ordway, Â director Â of Â Student Â Health Â Services.

Â Lloyd Â said Â it Â was Â important Â to Â use Â a Â calm Â demeanor Â when Â approaching Â a Â friend Â or Â family Â member Â dealing Â with Â an Â eating Â disorder, Â like Â anorexia Â or Â bulimia. Â She Â spoke Â about Â life Â in Â moderation, Â a Â lifestyle Â approach Â that Â does Â not Â ask Â the Â dieter Â to Â avoid Â certain Â foods Â altogether Â or Â demand Â an Â obses-Â sive Â workout Â routine, Â but Â rather Â a Â healthy Â realistic Â approach Â to Â dieting. Â Lloyd Â stressed Â the Â importance Â of Â self-Âlove Â and Â accep-Â tance. Lloyd Â said Â eating Â disorders Â manifest Â through Â deep-Â seeded Â psychological Â and Â emotional Â issues.

Subject: Â It Â is Â based Â on Â research Â I Â did Â on Â Quan Â Ho Â folk Â music. Â Basically, Â itâ€™s Â a Â type Â of Â singing Â that Â started Â out Â in Â the Â villages Â of Â Northern Â Viet-Â nam Â in Â one Â particular Â province Â and Â youâ€™d Â have Â groups Â of Â singers Â all Â one Â gender Â â€” Â so Â all Â female Â VLQJHUV H[FKDQJLQJ VRQJV ZLWK RWKHU JURXSV RI singers. Â Women Â singers Â would Â get Â together Â with Â a Â group Â of Â male Â singers Â and Â they Â would Â sing Â back Â and Â forth. Â What Â this Â book Â looks Â like Â is Â the Â village Â form Â of Â this Â music Â as Â well Â as Â what Â has Â happened Â to Â it Â as Â it Â has Â moved Â onto Â the Â professional Â stage. Â How Â long Â have Â you Â been Â working Â on Â this?: Â This Â is Â based Â upon Â my Â dissertation Â research, Â ZKLFK,VWDUWHGLQ6R,GLGWKH research. Â Then Â I Â wrote Â my Â dissertation Â and Â de-Â fended Â it Â in Â 2007 Â and Â since Â Iâ€™ve Â been Â at Â New Â Paltz Â Iâ€™ve Â spent Â two Â summers Â over Â there Â [in Â Viet-Â nam] Â talking Â to Â people Â and Â updating Â some Â of Â the Â research.

Caribbean Nights GROUP HOLDS FUNDRAISER FOR MISSIONARY TRIP
By Caterina De Gaetano Copy Editor | Cdegaetano64@hawkmail.newpaltz.edu The SUNY New Paltz Catholic Campus Ministry (CCM) celebrated Caribbean-style in preparation for their mission trip to the Dominican Republic this spring. The group held the Caribbean night dinner dance fundraiser at St. Joseph’s Church in New Paltz on Sat- urday, April 14. Members of the New Paltz Catholic community gathered in the basement of the church to feast on a buf- fet of rice and beans, curry chicken and spicy pulled pork while salsa and Reggae music played in the back- ground. Couples and young people practiced their two- VWHSDQG&KD&KD$OOJXHVWVWRRNSDUWLQDUDIÀHDQGD silent auction of gift cards, paintings and other novelties with the funds going to the missionaries. Katelyn Burns, a third-year communication disor- GHUVPDMRUKDVEHHQDPHPEHURI&&0VLQFHKHU¿UVW year at SUNY New Paltz. She said she is one of 12 stu- dents going on the trip in May. Burns said the materials the group needs to aid the
people abroad are expensive, so any help is appreciated. “We will be raising money for our funds that are going to the trip. We are bringing a water pump to a school in Haiti that is a costly expense,” Burns said. “We also will be doing service projects while we are there so we’ll need supplies for cleaning and painting. It is costly for all of us to travel there so any support is much appreciated.” CCM members will leave on May 21 and arrive at the central mountain region of the Dominican Republic where they will begin construction work and establish a Bible school for the children in the area, part-time Cath- olic Ministry Minister Hank Grimsland said. The team will be working in Jarabacoa and Mao, regions of the Dominican Republic, Grimsland said. He also said that the ministry will visit a school in Fort- Liberté, Haiti where they will install the electric water pump. Students are required to raise funds individually and as a group before the trip, Grimsland said. The pro- ceeds from auctioneers and guests at the group event aid in purchasing the electric water pump.
Grimsland said the ministry has held this fundrais- ing event in the past and it has seemed to catch on. “The combination of dinner, dancing — merengue, salsa and bachata — and silent auction seems to work very well,” Grimsland said. Trudy Unger, a New Paltz resident who attended the event Saturday, said she was impressed with the stu- dents for traveling abroad. “I hope they surpass what they hoped they would do to begin with. [I wish] success for them,” Unger said. The student missionaries will return on June 1, Burns said, but in the brief time they will be there, the group will be making a tremendous impact on people who have very little. “The work we will be doing there will literally be changing people’s lives. The communities we work with are very poor and they greatly appreciate all the work we do for them,” Burns said. “I look forward to seeing our work help [the children]. I know this trip, just like the last one, will be life changing!”
NEW SUPPORT GROUP STARTED FOR SENIOR STUDENTS By Jena Lagonia Contributing Writer | N02046663@hawkmail.newpaltz.edu The Psychological Counseling Center at SUNY New Paltz is now hosting a group that will bring seniors togeth- er to express what concerns they have about graduating. The group, Gearing Up For Graduation, aims to bring graduating students together to speak about their concerns and what graduation means to them. The group will be hosted by Catherine Davies, the co-facilitator at the SUNY New Paltz Counseling Center, and Carrie Schapker, a so- cial work intern. Davies and Schapker started the group due to the stressful job market awaiting students when they gradu- ate. The objective is to help students realize that they are not at all alone in their post-matriculation concerns. Every student may have a different situation that they want to speak about. “Some students are worried that if they return home they are a failure, others may be concerned about apply-
ing to grad school,” Davies said. “This group will provide perspective and give these students a comfort in knowing that they are not alone in their concerns.” The group was supposed to start meeting in the begin- ning of April on Monday afternoons, however not enough students were aware it existed. Caroline Monahan, a fourth-year student, said she ZRXOGGH¿QLWHO\DWWHQGWKHJURXS “I am so bad at coping with graduating,” Monahan said. “This would be comforting because everyone is a wreck and so many of us don’t know what we want to do.” Schapker just graduated herself and said she under- stands the unsettling feeling that comes with making the next steps after college. Schapker said she hopes students will be able to relate to her and that the group will hold discussions that are challenging. She said she will speak of her own experiences and help to facilitate the group. “I heard about Catherine’s idea and jumped on it,” Schapker said. “The feeling of entering unknown territory is very relevant to me right now, so it will make the group

more relatable.” All of the discussions held in the group are completely FRQ¿GHQWLDO0HPEHUVRIWKHJURXSZLOODOOKDYHDFKDQFH to speak about their own experiences and concerns. Some students have a rough home life or have personal feelings. The group would be a place where they can express these IHHOLQJVZLWKFRPSOHWHFRQ¿GHQWLDOLW\ “Things always seem bigger and scarier when you look at them,” Schapker said. “Talking about it and bring- ing it into the light will help to evaluate their fears and worries.” Schapker said the group still plans to hold meetings once enough people sign up for the group. This will give VWXGHQWVDFKDQFHWRKDYHDFRQ¿GHQWLDORXWOHWWKH\FDQJR to every week. “We just want students to know that they are not alone in their concerns,” Davies said. “It brings comfort to know that if they are not successful right out of college, they are still not a failure.”

Collaborative Cartoonish Cooperation DOUGLAS C. EBERHARDT MIXES POP WTH MACABRE IN UPCOMING MFA SHOW By Â Zan Â Strumfeld When Â he Â graduates Â from Â SUNY Â New Â Paltz, Â printmaker Â Douglas Â C. Â Â Eberhardt Â will Â be Â a Â master Â of Â collaboration. For Â part Â of Â his Â Master Â of Â Fine Â Arts Â (MFA) Â thesis, Â Eberhardt Â decided Â to Â make Â more Â than Â 100 Â prints Â of Â a Â self-Âportrait Â inside Â a Â robotic-Âlooking Â silhouette, Â with Â another Â EODQNÂżJXUHEHVLGHKLV Calling Â it Â the Â â€œLets Â Hang Â Out Â Kit,â€? Â he Â sent Â them Â to Â his Â artist Â friends, Â along Â with Â ev-Â eryone Â in Â the Â SUNY Â New Â Paltz Â printmaking Â SURJUDPDQGDVNHGWKHPWRÂżOOLQWKHLURZQ self-Âportraits Â any Â way Â they Â liked. Â â€œPeople Â did Â interpretations Â of Â them-Â selves,â€? Â Eberhardt Â said. Â â€œThis Â is Â sort Â of Â a Â way Â of Â bringing Â friends Â and Â community Â into Â my Â work Â because Â my Â work Â can Â be Â re-Â ally Â personal. Â A Â lot Â of Â it Â is Â pretty Â accessible, Â cartoony, Â but Â bringing Â other Â people Â into Â it Â makes Â it Â interesting Â to Â me. Â Kind Â of Â opens Â up Â a Â whole Â new Â realm.â€? Â During Â his Â undergraduate Â career Â at Â Ed-Â inboro Â University Â in Â Pennsylvania, Â Eber-Â hardt Â became Â inspired Â by Â the Â older Â technique Â of Â the Â exquisite Â corpse Â â€” Â where Â different Â artists Â draw Â separate Â parts Â of Â a Â body Â and Â combine Â them Â together, Â allowing Â the Â possi-Â bility Â to Â interchange Â the Â parts. Â With Â this Â idea Â in Â mind, Â Eberhardt Â will Â WDNH WKH ÂżOOHGLQ ' SULQWV DQG IROG WKHP LQWR ' ÂżJXUHV 7KH ÂżJXUHV ZLOO VWDQG LQ front Â of Â a Â diorama Â of Â an Â environment Â Eber-Â hardt Â painted, Â showcasing Â the Â major Â places Â in Â his Â life: Â the Â Buffalo Â house Â he Â grew Â up Â in, Â the Â house Â he Â lived Â in Â as Â an Â undergraduate Â and Â the Â cityscapes Â of Â New Â York Â City, Â Buffalo Â and Â Pittsburgh. Â â€œI Â wanted Â it Â to Â be Â as Â noisy Â as Â possible,â€? Â Eberhardt Â said. Eberhardtâ€™s Â work Â is Â colorful, Â bursting Â with Â energy, Â exuding Â the Â grotesque Â and Â eerie Â shapes Â of Â the Â face Â and Â body. Â In Â one Â particular Â self-Âportrait Â that Â will Â be Â on Â display Â at Â his Â the-Â sis Â show, Â Eberhardtâ€™s Â print Â shows Â him Â sleep-Â ing Â on Â a Â couch Â with Â an Â explosion Â of Â wild Â images Â pouring Â out Â of Â his Â head Â in Â different Â directions. â€œItâ€™s Â a Â really Â abstracted Â self-Âportrait Â that Â was Â trying Â to Â explain Â all Â of Â the Â ideas Â coming Â out Â of Â my Â head,â€? Â Eberhardt Â said. Â â€œItâ€™s Â as Â if Â my Â head Â just Â blew Â up Â on Â a Â bunch Â of Â paper. Â That Â is Â what Â I Â was Â trying Â to Â go Â for.â€? Â

Constructed Chaos ANTHONY TINO SHOWCASES TALENT By Suzy Berkowitz Copy Editor | N02007890@hawkmail.newpaltz.edu
BFA THESIS SHOWS
Anthony Tino spends the majority of his time working with plaster gauze, fabric, metal, plastic and video. Tino, a fourth-year printmaking Bachelor of Fine Arts (BFA), said he focuses on several mediums and is cur- rently working toward preparing for his senior thesis show on display at the Dor- sky. His show, called “Yotonyo,” will include a large format digital print with silkscreen, an assemblage type of sculp- ture and a video monitor. Though Tino entered New Paltz studying literature, he found himself being drawn more to the formation of a book than the content of it. He learned how to design images and after taking a class about creating sound experiences, he realized he belonged in the Fine Arts Department. Since then, his focus has shifted to- ward working with visual and audio me- diums to communicate his art, he said. Over the past two semesters, Tino has accumulated works from his time at New Paltz and elaborating on them. “I think there might be a few themes in the show that include disguise, fetish- ism and subversion,” Tino said. “There will also be alternative ways of using materials, which all kind of boils down
to my making a show that’s about an ex- ploration of taste.” The most challenging part of put- ting together his thesis show, Tino said, was scaling back the work he wanted to show. He said he overproduced and then KDGWKHGLI¿FXOWWDVNRI¿WWLQJKLVZRUN into the space he was given. The inclusion of several different mediums in Tino’s thesis has not dis- couraged him because the chaos rein- forces the show’s themes and is embed- ded in the pieces on display, he said. “I think the more confused the view- er is, the better,” Tino said. Coupled with the show’s chaotic nature, Tino said he created the show to feel as busy as a conversation might. A FOHDUYLVLRQRIZKDWWKH¿QLVKHGSURGXFW would look like is not evident. “I am an artist and printmaker but above all, I am in love with the way aes- thetics works, movements are created and artworks that make us think,” Tino said. “My show deals with how images are recycled and how the act of produc- tion is mimetic of things that have come before. My show undermines notions of the individual artistic genius and places that emphasis on culture while simulta- neously glamorizing myself as an artist and my personal interests.” Tino’s BFA thesis show will be on display at The Dorsky from May 4 to 8.

Jeff Moves To The Screen
MAN-CHILD FILM BEATS EXPECTATIONS
By Â Molly Â Hone Contributing Â Writer Â | Â N02026251@hawkmail.newpaltz.edu
Jeff, Who Lives at Home Directed by Jay and Mark Duplass When Â I Â went Â to Â see Â the Â Duplass Â brothersâ€™ Â â€œJeff, Â Who Â Lives Â at Â Homeâ€? Â over Â the Â long Â weekend, Â I Â braced Â myself Â for Â another Â mediocre Â comedy Â about Â a Â man-Âchild Â who Â refuses Â to Â grow Â up. Â Iâ€™m Â actually Â a Â fan Â of Â those Â comedies, Â but Â I Â donâ€™t Â expect Â much Â from Â them. Â Judging Â by Â the Â title, Â Jason Â Segelâ€™s Â top-Âbilling Â and Â the Â fact Â that Â co-Âwriter/director Â Mark Â Duplass Â stars Â in Â a Â show Â about Â fantasy Â football Â (FXâ€™s Â â€œThe Â Leagueâ€?), Â I Â thought Â I Â would Â have Â exactly Â this Â experience: Â Iâ€™d Â watch Â Segel Â do Â his Â bug-Âeyed Â thing, Â enjoy Â the Â clever Â one-Âliners Â and Â pop Â culture Â references Â and Â make Â a Â mental Â venn Â diagram Â comparing Â the Â moments Â I Â laughed Â to Â the Â moments Â I Â cringed. Â To Â my Â surprise, Â that Â wasnâ€™t Â my Â experience Â at Â all. Â Â â€œJeff, Â Who Â Lives Â at Â Homeâ€? Â is Â about Â a Â thoughtful, Â 30-Âyear-Âold Â slacker Â (Segel) Â whoâ€™s Â been Â thinking Â about Â his Â place Â in Â the Â world. Â Jeff Â believes Â the Â universe Â sends Â signs Â to Â guide Â us, Â but Â his Â cynical Â brother, Â Pat Â (Ed Â Helms), Â doesnâ€™t Â agree Â â€” Â until Â a Â simple Â errand Â sends Â the Â pair Â on Â a Â day-Âlong Â journey Â toward Â destiny. Â Throw Â in Â two Â car Â crashes, Â a Â broken Â
marriage Â and Â an Â AIM-Âchat Â secret Â admirer Â and Â youâ€™ve Â got Â a Â touching, Â clever Â comedy-Âdrama Â about Â human Â connection Â and Â self-Âdiscovery. Â Â Segel, Â who Â consistently Â takes Â blasĂŠ Â roles Â as Â clumsy Â JDORRWVWXUQVRXWDWUXO\WHQGHUSHUIRUPDQFHLQWKLVÂżOP Look Â for Â the Â moments Â when Â his Â face Â switches Â from Â inno-Â cent Â amusement Â to Â watery-Âeyed Â epiphany Â in Â about Â half Â a Â second. Â Youâ€™ll Â end Â up Â with Â the Â same Â expression. The Â supporting Â castâ€™s Â performances Â were Â equally Â ab-Â sorbing. Â Susan Â Sarandon Â (Jeffâ€™s Â mother) Â is, Â as Â always, Â fan-Â tastic. Â Her Â characterâ€™s Â compelling Â subplot Â culminates Â in Â WKHÂżOPÂśVPRVWMR\RXVPRPHQW+HOPVSOD\VKLVFKDUDFWHU VRDJDLQVWKLVQRUPKHÂśVDOPRVWUHSXJQDQWDWÂżUVWDQG-XG\ Greer, Â as Â his Â unhappy Â wife, Â easily Â steals Â the Â few Â scenes Â in Â which Â she Â appears. Â I Â also Â want Â to Â point Â out Â how Â great Â the Â original Â score Â was. Â Michael Â Andrewsâ€™ Â deceptively Â simple Â music Â was Â de-Â lightful, Â carrying Â the Â action Â in Â bursts Â of Â playfulness Â and Â poignancy. Â Iâ€™m Â itching Â to Â buy Â the Â soundtrack. Itâ€™s Â not Â often Â that Â I Â walk Â out Â of Â a Â theater Â crying Â because Â ,IHHOP\IDLWKLQKXPDQLW\KDVEHHQUHVWRUHG$WWKHÂżOPÂśV heart Â is Â a Â simple, Â but Â much Â needed, Â reminder: Â people Â have Â an Â endless Â capacity Â to Â be Â excellent Â to Â each Â other. Â You Â bet Â I Â just Â borrowed Â a Â phrase Â from Â â€œBill Â and Â Tedâ€™s Â Excellent Â Adventureâ€? Â to Â acknowledge Â the Â endurance Â of Â compassion Â in Â our Â cynical Â world. &RPLQJLQDWDFR]\PLQXWHVWKLVÂżOPLVDEUHDWK of Â fresh Â air.

On Â April Â 9, Â a Â representative Â from Â our Â current Â food Â service Â provider, Â Sodexo Â Inc., Â confronted Â stu-Â dents Â rallying Â in Â front Â of Â Student Â Union Â 62/63 Â where Â an Â open Â forum Â was Â held. Â Â The Â meeting Â was Â for Â stu-Â dents Â to Â express Â their Â concerns Â about Â the Â current Â food Â program Â and Â propose Â changes. Â At Â around Â noon, Â the Â Sodexo Â representative Â left Â the Â meeting Â and Â tore Â up Â signs Â and Â materials Â the Â students Â had Â posted, Â ignoring Â their Â pleas Â to Â stop.

We Â at Â The Â New Â Paltz Â Oracle Â are Â outraged Â that Â students Â were Â forced Â out Â of Â an Â open Â forum Â where Â cli-Â ent Â feedback Â was Â requested Â by Â the Â company. Â We Â are Â appalled Â that Â students Â merely Â expressing Â their Â opin-Â ions Â were Â treated Â so Â harshly. Â The Â forum Â was Â meant Â for Â the Â student Â body Â to Â freely Â address Â their Â thoughts Â and Â feelings Â on Â the Â present Â food Â service Â and Â when Â negative Â responses Â were Â given, Â the Â company Â attempt-Â ed Â to Â silence Â them Â in Â an Â aggressive Â way. If Â our Â society Â expects Â to Â see Â changes, Â voices Â must Â be Â heard Â and Â not Â silenced. Â In Â order Â to Â make Â chang-Â es Â on Â our Â campus, Â student Â voices Â are Â essential. Â The Â school Â is Â for Â students Â after Â all.

dexo Â has Â attempted Â to Â silence. Â Sodexo Â Inc. Â is Â a Â multinational Â corporation Â serv-Â ing Â campuses Â across Â the Â nation, Â as Â well Â as Â 120 Â pris-Â ons Â worldwide. Â The Â company Â has Â a Â history Â of Â abusing Â workersâ€™ Â rights Â in Â the Â United Â States Â and Â in Â countries Â abroad Â such Â as Â the Â Dominican Â Republic, Â Columbia Â and Â Morocco, Â according Â to Â documents Â of Â the Â NGO Â TransAfrica. Â It Â is Â startling Â that Â Sodexoâ€™s Â intolerance Â for Â justice Â doesnâ€™t Â end Â with Â the Â rallying Â of Â New Â Paltz Â students. Â 6RGH[R KDV EHHQ DFFXVHG RI ÂżULQJ ZRUNHUV LQ Columbia Â as Â a Â result Â of Â their Â efforts Â to Â form Â a Â labor Â union. Â In Â Guinea, Â workers Â allegedly Â are Â not Â allowed Â to Â drink Â from Â the Â same Â canteen Â as Â European Â workers. Â They Â claim Â the Â food Â they Â are Â given Â is Â scarce Â in Â con-Â trast Â with Â the Â European Â laborers. Â In Â the Â United Â States, Â Sodexo Â also Â launched Â an Â aggressive Â campaign Â against Â some Â of Â their Â employeesâ€™ Â efforts Â to Â form Â unions Â and Â bargain Â collectively. Â These Â examples Â seem Â to Â indicate Â Sodexo Â likes Â to Â rough-Âup Â anyone Â who Â speaks Â or Â acts Â against Â the Â company. Â 6RGH[R LV QRW D JRRG ÂżW IRU RXU FDPSXV :H should Â not Â support Â a Â company Â known Â for Â mistreating Â employees Â and Â denying Â them Â of Â their Â rights.

Â The Â New Â York Â State Â Attorney Â Generalâ€™s Â Of-Â ÂżFHFRQGXFWHGDQLQYHVWLJDWLRQLQWKDWIRXQG6R dexo Â cheated Â SUNY Â colleges, Â including Â New Â Paltz, Â out Â of Â millions Â of Â dollars.

We Â desperately Â urge Â Campus Â Auxiliary Â Services Â (CAS) Â and Â administration Â to Â review Â the Â collegeâ€™s Â con-Â tract Â with Â Sodexo Â as Â their Â contract Â is Â up Â for Â renewal Â and Â other Â food Â services Â are Â up Â for Â consideration. Â We Â ask Â that Â these Â other Â services Â are Â seriously Â considered Â and Â the Â contract Â with Â Sodexo Â is Â not Â renewed Â for Â the Â aforementioned Â reasons. Â We Â refuse Â to Â support Â a Â ser-Â vice Â which Â abuses Â employees, Â swindles Â schools Â out Â of Â money Â and Â serves Â unhealthy Â food Â to Â young Â con-Â sumers.

Â We Â as Â students Â are Â entitled Â to Â healthier Â food Â for Â a Â more Â affordable Â price, Â which Â can Â be Â found Â with Â alternative Â providers. We Â look Â forward Â to Â working Â with Â CAS Â and Â the Â administration Â and Â would Â like Â to Â see Â the Â contract Â with Â Sodexo Â reassessed Â in Â the Â coming Â year. Â

It Â was Â easier Â for Â me Â to Â make Â new Â friends Â as Â a Â child. Â I Â used Â to Â walk Â over Â to Â someone, Â impress Â them Â with Â my Â toys Â or Â Barbie Â doll Â collection Â and Â BOOM! Â Just Â like Â that, Â we Â were Â friends. Â I Â was Â much Â more Â outgoing Â and Â eager Â to Â make Â friends Â too. Â But Â now Â Iâ€™ve Â become Â so Â jaded Â that Â Iâ€™m Â not Â even Â interested Â in Â making Â friends Â anymore. Â Also, Â I Â havenâ€™t Â found Â anyone Â my Â age Â that Â still Â plays Â with Â Barbie Â dolls Â or Â would Â be Â interested Â in Â my Â collection. I Â avoid Â people Â now. Â I Â avoid Â potential Â friends Â the Â way Â a Â browbeaten Â kid Â would Â avoid Â the Â school Â bully. Â For Â example, Â Â if Â I Â was Â on Â my Â way Â to Â class Â and Â I Â saw Â some-Â one Â I Â knew Â 20 Â yards Â away Â and Â walking Â toward Â me, Â I Â would Â most Â likely Â take Â a Â detour, Â even Â if Â that Â means Â arriving Â to Â class Â 10 Â or Â 20 Â minutes Â late. Â I Â used Â to Â look Â down Â at Â my Â cellphone Â to Â avoid Â someone Â walking Â by, Â but Â then Â I Â realized Â everyone Â else Â does Â that Â shit Â too. Â It Â also Â really Â doesnâ€™t Â work Â with Â some-Â

It Â was Â only Â a Â month Â ago Â when Â I Â knew Â exactly Â what Â I Â was Â going Â to Â do Â with Â my Â life.

Â It Â was Â perfect. Â Then Â my Â advisor Â emailed Â me Â about Â declaring Â my Â major Â and Â suddenly Â my Â plan Â fell Â apart.

COLUMNS one Â who Â is Â super Â talkative Â and Â friendly. Â Theyâ€™ll Â see Â that Â youâ€™re Â busy Â â€œtextingâ€? Â or Â listening Â to Â your Â iPod Â and Â decide Â to Â talk Â to Â you Â anyway. Â That Â happened Â to Â me Â once Â and Â I Â swear Â on Â my Â pinky Â toe Â this Â is Â how Â the Â conversation Â went. Bitch Â Iâ€™m Â trying Â to Â avoid Â (BITTA): Â â€œHey.â€? Â Me: Â â€œHey.â€? BITTA: Â â€œWhatâ€™s Â up?â€? Me: Â â€œNothing Â much. Â Whatâ€™s Â up Â with Â you?â€? BITTA: Â â€œOh, Â nothing.â€? Me: Â â€œOkay, Â bye.â€? And Â thatâ€™s Â it. Â These Â are Â the Â types Â of Â verbal Â exchanges Â I Â try Â to Â avoid. Â If Â you Â ask Â me, Â I Â think Â Iâ€™m Â doing Â these Â people Â a Â favor Â by Â avoiding Â them. Â No Â one Â wants Â to Â be Â in Â a Â dry-Âass Â dialogue Â like Â that. Â I Â mean, Â I Â donâ€™t Â understand Â why Â someone Â would Â interrupt Â me Â to Â start Â some Â bullshit Â conversation Â like Â that. Â Especially Â when Â you Â have Â nothing Â to Â say. Â I Â mean, Â this Â conversation Â wouldnâ€™t Â be Â so Â annoying Â if Â Â the Â person Â had Â something Â to Â say Â after Â I Â said Â â€œWhatâ€™s Â up Â with Â you?â€? Â I Â donâ€™t Â mind Â speaking Â to Â â€œhiâ€? Â and Â â€œbyeâ€? Â people Â be-Â cause Â thatâ€™s Â all Â they Â say Â â€œhi,â€? Â â€œheyâ€? Â and Â keep Â it Â moving. Â But Â I Â digress, Â I Â think.
Lately, Â social Â settings Â have Â been Â the Â bane Â of Â my Â existence, Â especially Â when Â I Â donâ€™t Â know Â the Â people Â too Â well. Â Outside Â of Â the Â incredibly Â small Â group Â of Â friends Â I Â have Â at Â SUNY Â New Â Paltz, Â I Â realized Â that Â I Â just Â canâ€™t Â deal Â with Â people. Â They Â are Â either Â too Â annoying, Â loud, Â vain, Â or Â want Â to Â be Â the Â center Â of Â attention Â all Â the Â time. Â I Â canâ€™t Â deal Â with Â that Â shit. Â Some Â of Â my Â friends Â have Â these Â char-Â acteristics Â but Â they Â also Â possess Â positive Â attributes Â that Â overpower Â the Â annoying Â ones. Â I Â donâ€™t Â really Â know Â most Â people Â well Â enough Â to Â see Â past Â their Â annoying Â traits. Iâ€™ve Â made Â friends Â or Â acquaintances Â outside Â of Â my Â small Â circle Â of Â friends. Â , XVXDOO\ IRU WKH PRVW SDUW GRQÂśW ÂżQG these Â people Â to Â be Â annoying. Â But Â Iâ€™m Â not Â emotionally Â attached Â to Â them Â like Â I Â am Â to Â the Â people Â in Â my Â circle. Â So Â itâ€™s Â easy Â for Â me Â to Â drop Â them Â like Â a Â hot Â potato Â and Â not Â feel Â guilty Â about Â it Â or Â anything. Â Iâ€™ve Â done Â that Â to Â a Â lot Â of Â people Â since Â Iâ€™ve Â been Â here. Â Â I Â like Â that Â I Â am Â this Â way, Â though. Â You Â see, Â when Â I Â was Â younger Â I Â always Â tried Â to Â please Â people, Â and Â impress Â them, Â in Â hopes Â that Â they Â would Â become Â my Â
friends. Â I Â was Â more Â vulnerable Â to Â (so-Â cial) Â rejection Â back Â then Â and Â I Â often Â got Â my Â feelings Â hurt. Â I Â mean, Â when Â I Â was Â a Â toddler, Â other Â kids Â used Â to Â steal Â toys. Â Â So Â I Â stopped Â trying Â so Â hard. The Â friends Â I Â have, Â Iâ€™ve Â made Â them Â effortlessly. Â Iâ€™m Â not Â going Â to Â start Â lis-Â tening Â to Â music Â and Â watching Â the Â same Â 79VKRZVDVRWKHUVMXVWWRÂżWLQ,PHDQ I Â probably Â would Â check Â it Â out Â if Â I Â was Â interested. Â But Â I Â wouldnâ€™t Â do Â it Â just Â to Â make Â friends. Â I Â know Â a Â lot Â of Â people Â who Â do Â that Â shit Â and Â it Â annoys Â me. Â I Â donâ€™t Â know Â why Â itâ€™s Â not Â easier Â for Â me Â to Â make Â friends Â now. Â I Â mean, Â Iâ€™m Â at-Â tractive, Â funny Â (once Â you Â get Â to Â know Â me), Â and Â I Â have Â a Â ton Â of Â smart Â and Â dumb Â shit Â to Â say. Â However, Â Iâ€™ve Â noticed Â that Â now Â it Â takes Â a Â while, Â a Â long Â while, Â for Â me Â to Â feel Â comfortable Â with Â someone Â before Â a Â friendship Â (if Â at Â all) Â follows. Â I Â know Â that Â friendships Â can Â be Â more Â com-Â plicated Â and Â hard Â to Â keep Â hold Â of Â when Â youâ€™re Â older Â so Â maybe Â thatâ€™s Â a Â factorâ€ŚI Â donâ€™t Â know. Â Â I Â wish Â making Â friends Â and Â building Â friendships Â could Â be Â as Â simplis-Â tic Â as Â it Â was Â when Â I Â was Â a Â child. Â Maybe Â they Â are Â still Â that Â simple Â and Â I Â just Â donâ€™t Â know Â it.

Â while Â working Â for Â The Â Oracle Â so Â I Â may Â be Â New Â York Â Times-Âworthy Â pretty Â soon. Â My Â problem Â is Â I Â donâ€™t Â know Â if Â I Â like Â my Â plan Â anymore. Â I Â might Â want Â to Â be Â a Â public Â relations Â major Â instead, Â law Â is Â getting Â a Â bit Â too Â complicated, Â straight Â $ÂśVZDVRQO\DÂżUVWVHPHVWHUWKLQJ&KL nese Â doesnâ€™t Â seem Â so Â cool Â anymore Â and Â The Â New Â York Â Times, Â well, Â maybe Â thatâ€™s Â still Â possible.

Â It Â
was Â like Â a Â wave Â of Â anxiety Â swept Â over Â me Â and Â my Â perfect Â life Â plan Â was Â turned Â into Â 1,000 Â piece Â puzzle. Â Itâ€™s Â strange Â how Â just Â two Â words Â -Â Â â€œdeclare Â majorâ€? Â -Â Â can Â spark Â all Â of Â these Â thoughts.

this Â education Â and Â some Â of Â my Â future Â co-Âworkers Â wonâ€™t Â even Â have Â a Â college Â degree.

LETTERS I’ve met a truly wonderful man who will be on the Democratic Pri- mary ballot on June 26, to take over Maurice Hinchey’s seat in Congress. He is Joel Tyner, and in addition to Maurice’s position on expanding Medicare, the “break up the too big to fail” banks, amending the Con- stitution to get rid of corporate per- sonhood, “No! to NAFTA,” clean money elections, and ending “Big Oil” speculation, Joel supports crim- inalizing fracking. He is endorsed by Josh Fox, the creator of “Gasland,” the wonderful movie that has done
so much to bring the evils of frack- ing to the public’s awareness. He is endorsed by Pete Seeger, who knows something about progressive politics. He is endorsed by Dr. Cornel West, distinguished Professor at Princeton, a leader for civil rights, progressive social rights, a man who exposes the anti-humanistic distortions held by 5HSXEOLFDQ DQG 'HPRFUDWLF RI¿FH holders. Dr. West has a great sense of humor, and so does Joel, and I will never trust anyone who can’t laugh at themselves. Joel can, and will win. He has
EHHQ HOHFWHG ¿YH WLPHV LQ D URZ WR the Dutchess County Legislature in a solid Republican district. He has enormous energy and is knowledge- able and progressive on every issue that I’ve heard him speak about. I support Joel all the way, and I hope that Woostockers will do the same.
So many of you now are graduat- ing. Done with classes. Done with tests. Done with ... clubs and organizations? Perhaps - that is what many people do. I’ve know some incredibly active and involved people who gave their all in clubs and organizations who just stopped doing those things after college. People often see those things as some- thing you do while you’re in college and
forget that those types of groups exist out in the ‘real world.” This shouldn’t be the case. The end of your college (or perhaps just undergraduate) time should be just the start of your involvement in the community. In the Hudson Valley or wherever you live after you leave SUNY New Paltz, there are tons of organiza- tions looking for new members, volun- teers and even leaders and organizers.
These could be clubs, social or cultural organizations, charitable groups, or ath- letic groups & teams. Being involved in these groups can be fun, educational, let you meet new people and make your community a better place.

Joel Tyner embodies the values of peace, justice, environmental protec- tion and true democracy that I learned from Dr. King and Pete Seeger - and he works as hard as humanly possible to assure that they are realized. His dedication and perseverance have al- ORZHG KLP WR EH UHHOHFWHG ¿YH WLPHV to the Dutchess County legislature - the last time running unopposed.

The Â SUNY Â New Â Paltz Â Womenâ€™s Â Lacrosse Â team Â began Â this Â season Â under Â the Â guidance Â of Â a Â new Â coach Â and Â a Â brand Â new Â approach Â to Â victory.

Around Â New Â Paltz, Â it Â seems Â like Â trying Â to Â grind Â will Â al-Â ways Â to Â be Â a Â hassle.

The Â NHL Â playoffs Â have Â been Â nothing Â short Â of Â entertaining Â thus Â far. Â Too Â bad Â itâ€™s Â for Â almost Â all Â of Â the Â wrong Â reasons. Â The Â social Â media-Âsphere Â is Â in Â an Â uproar Â due Â to Â the Â NHL Â Player Â Safety Â Department Â and Â its Â recent Â lack Â of Â consistency. Â Blown Â FDOOV XQIDLU VXVSHQVLRQV DQG ERJXV ÂżQHV have Â become Â commonplace Â in Â the Â league, Â and Â thousands Â of Â people Â â€” Â including Â fans, Â analysts, Â coaches, Â writers Â and Â players Â â€” Â have Â started Â to Â become Â more Â vocal Â about Â these Â issues. Ranger Â fans Â are Â all Â too Â familiar Â with Â how Â badly Â things Â have Â spiraled Â out Â of Â con-Â trol, Â seeing Â as Â it Â more Â or Â less Â started Â with Â them. Â It Â may Â have Â been Â a Â couple Â of Â weeks Â ago Â now, Â but Â the Â Orpik Â knee Â incident Â was Â WKH ÂżUVW VLJQ RI KRZ EDG WKLQJV KDYH EH come. Â The Â Penguinsâ€™ Â star Â defenseman Â Brooks Â Orpik Â kneeâ€™d Â Derek Â Stepan, Â causing Â the Â latter Â injury. Â It Â isnâ€™t Â totally Â clear, Â but Â if Â you Â look Â closely Â enough Â you Â see Â that Â Or-Â pikâ€™s Â skate Â turns Â out Â and Â thereâ€™s Â no Â reason Â why Â it Â should Â have. I Â canâ€™t Â even Â begin Â to Â tell Â you Â how Â livid Â I Â was Â when Â I Â saw Â the Â play. Â I Â had Â
Skating Â On Â Shaky Â Ice literally Â just Â gotten Â home Â for Â Easter, Â turned Â on Â the Â TV Â with Â my Â folks Â and Â bam, Â Stepan Â was Â on Â the Â ice. ,WKRXJKWWKHUHZRXOGGHÂżQLWHO\EHVRPH punishment Â for Â Orpik, Â my Â original Â guess Â being Â a Â three-Âgame Â suspension. Â But Â there Â was Â nothing. Â There Â wasnâ€™t Â even Â a Â hearing. Â I Â was Â embarrassed Â with Â the Â league, Â because Â LWRQO\IXUWKHUVROLGLÂżHGWKH3HQJXLQSURWHF tion Â theory. And Â I Â know Â all Â of Â you Â out Â there Â Â didnâ€™t Â think Â it Â could Â get Â any Â worse. Â Oh Â yes Â it Â could, Â apparently. Letâ€™s Â talk Â about Â Carl Â Hagelin. +HUHÂśVDSOD\HUZKRLQKLVÂżUVW\HDULQ the Â NHL Â has Â barely Â placed Â a Â skate Â out Â of Â line Â and Â would Â probably Â need Â Mike Â Rupp Â to Â point Â him Â toward Â the Â direction Â of Â the Â penalty Â box, Â thatâ€™s Â how Â little Â heâ€™s Â been Â there. Â How Â did Â he Â warrant Â a Â three-Âgame Â suspension? Â Iâ€™m Â not Â saying Â he Â should Â have Â been Â ex-Â HPSWIURPKHDULQJVRUDÂżQHRUVXVSHQVLRQ because Â he Â shouldnâ€™t Â have Â been. Â The Â fact Â is Â you Â canâ€™t Â be Â careless Â about Â what Â you Â do, Â and Â if Â you Â elbow Â someone Â and Â seriously Â injure Â them Â (Daniel Â Alfredsson Â did Â suffer Â from Â a Â
concussion, Â keeping Â him Â out Â of Â game Â three Â of Â the Â series), Â there Â should Â be Â consequences. However, Â this Â was Â inconsistent Â and Â un-Â fair Â and Â displays Â some Â serious Â problems Â in Â the Â NHL Â right Â now. Â Itâ€™s Â clear Â certain Â players Â are Â given Â more Â leeway Â than Â others, Â and Â that Â NHL Â Player Â Safety Â has Â become Â a Â joke. This Â is Â more Â disappointing Â than Â aggra-Â YDWLQJ:KHQ%UHQGDQ6KDQDKDQÂżUVWFDPH in, Â everyone Â thought Â things Â would Â get Â bet-Â ter. Â Here Â was Â a Â guy Â who Â had Â been Â a Â success-Â ful Â and Â honest Â player Â for Â many Â years Â in Â the Â NHL. Â He Â is Â someone Â who Â understands Â what Â players Â go Â through Â and Â what Â goes Â on Â in Â their Â heads. Â At Â least, Â he Â was Â supposed Â to. Â Iâ€™m Â embarrassed Â to Â remember Â how Â fond Â I Â was Â of Â him, Â especially Â when Â he Â was Â a Â Ranger. Â He Â knows Â that Â delivering Â pain Â and Â causing Â concussions Â is Â not Â part Â of Â the Â Rangersâ€™ Â organization. Â He Â openly Â stated Â he Â doesnâ€™t Â believe Â Hagelin Â is Â that Â kind Â of Â play-Â er Â and Â heâ€™s Â a Â â€œgoodâ€? Â kid. Â Alfredsson Â said Â he Â thinks Â it Â was Â just Â the Â intensity Â of Â the Â play-Â offs. Â So Â how Â is Â it Â he Â got Â three Â games Â when Â players Â like Â Shea Â Weber Â and Â James Â Neal Â get Â
D PHUH ÂżQH DQG RQH JDPH UHVSHF tively? Weber Â grabbed Â Henrik Â Zetterberg Â by Â the Â neck Â and Â bashed Â his Â head Â into Â the Â glass. Â Neal Â attacked Â both Â Sean Â Couturier Â and Â Claude Â Giroux Â out Â of Â nowhere. Â Hagelin Â made Â a Â mistake, Â but Â the Â difference Â is Â that Â Hagelin Â isnâ€™t Â a Â star, Â and Â the Â player Â he Â at-Â tacked Â ended Â up Â hurt. Â Things Â like Â that Â canâ€™t Â affect Â punishment. Â Discipline Â should Â be Â based Â on Â intent. Â Players Â like Â Orpik Â and Â Weber Â have Â histo-Â ries Â of Â acting Â like Â neanderthals. Â However, Â theyâ€™re Â both Â stars, Â and Â Neal Â has Â made Â a Â name Â for Â himself Â this Â season. Â They Â get Â to Â stay Â around Â because Â theyâ€™re Â such Â important Â keys, Â not Â only Â in Â their Â respective Â markets, Â but Â in Â the Â NHL Â as Â a Â whole. Â I Â understand Â the Â importance Â of Â star Â players Â and Â making Â smaller Â markets Â grow, Â especially Â Nashville. Â However, Â safety Â needs Â to Â be Â taken Â more Â seriously Â and Â it Â certainly Â canâ€™t Â be Â as Â biased Â as Â it Â is Â now. Â It Â has Â to Â start Â getting Â consistent, Â or Â else Â the Â fans Â who Â have Â been Â there Â wonâ€™t Â stick Â around Â much Â lon-Â ger. Â Â Â Â
Where Â The Â Rivals Â Once Â Were Â email@example.com
With Â the Â Mets Â heading Â to Â Philly Â last Â weekend, Â I Â could Â not Â help Â but Â miss Â the Â once-Âgreat Â rivalry Â the Â two Â teams Â had. Â Gone Â are Â the Â days Â of Â the Â smack Â talk Â between Â Jimmy Â Rollins Â and Â Car-Â los Â Beltran, Â gone Â are Â the Â days Â of Â crucial Â series Â in Â September Â and Â certainly Â gone Â are Â the Â days Â of Â Pat Â Burrell Â unleashing Â terror Â upon Â the Â Mets Â every Â season. Â It Â makes Â sense Â really;Íž Â the Â Mets Â and Â Phillies Â were Â at Â each Â otherâ€™s Â throats Â LQ ZKHQ WKH 3KLOOLHV WRRN ÂżUVW place Â by Â one Â game Â and Â in Â 2008, Â the Â Phillies Â once Â again Â took Â the Â best Â of Â the Â Amazinâ€™s. Â Since Â then, Â the Â Phillies Â have Â be-Â come Â World Â Champions Â and Â been Â a Â SOD\RII FRQWHQGHU IRU ÂżYH \HDUV ZKLOH the Â Mets Â have Â gone Â into Â a Â tailspin, Â a Â re-Â gime Â change Â and Â complete Â rebuilding Â PRGH :LWKRXW WKDW FRPSHWLWLYH ÂżUH
how Â can Â a Â rivalry Â maintain Â its Â gusto? But Â back Â to Â this Â weekendâ€™s Â series. Â I Â asked Â myself Â â€” Â do Â the Â Mets Â actually Â have Â a Â rival Â at Â this Â point? The Â once-Âhated Â Braves Â lost Â the Â hoist Â of Â biggest Â rival Â once Â the Â Phillies Â usurped Â them Â as Â the Â dominant Â force Â of Â the Â division. Â Since Â their Â fall Â from Â grace, Â Braves Â series Â are Â not Â the Â adrenaline Â DQG EHHU ÂżOOHG UDJHIHVWV WKDW RQFH shook Â the Â halls Â of Â Shea Â Stadium. Â Sure, Â Chipper Â Jones Â is Â still Â around, Â but Â his Â soon-Âto-Âbe Â hall Â of Â fame Â career Â is Â end-Â ing Â this Â season, Â so Â the Â venom Â Mets Â fans Â once Â had Â now Â calmed Â to Â something Â of Â a Â somber Â acknowledgement. Â The Â Nationals Â and Â Marlins Â have Â done Â their Â fair Â share Â of Â damage Â to Â the Â Mets Â over Â the Â years, Â but Â nothing Â close Â to Â a Â rivalry-Âlike Â status. Â The Â closest Â thing Â the Â Nationals Â and Â Mets Â had Â to Â an Â ongo-Â ing Â rivalry Â was Â when Â Pedro Â Martinez Â plunked Â Jose Â Guillen Â in Â 2006, Â causing Â
WKH1DWVRXWÂżHOGHUWRFKDUJHWKHPRXQG with Â his Â bat Â and Â benches Â to Â empty. Â Perhaps Â with Â Jose Â Reyes Â now Â don-Â ning Â his Â funky Â new Â uniform Â in Â Miami, Â the Â Mets Â could Â kindle Â some Â sort Â of Â sat-Â isfaction Â from Â winning Â games Â against Â him Â down Â the Â line. Â But Â for Â now, Â it Â doesnâ€™t Â seem Â too Â heated Â â€” Â especially Â with Â the Â revelation Â that Â the Â Mets Â will Â be Â honoring Â him Â with Â a Â video Â tribute Â when Â the Â Marlins Â head Â to Â town. Â The Â basic Â conclusion Â is Â that Â the Â Mets Â have Â not Â played Â meaningful Â games Â in Â the Â past Â few Â years, Â and Â be-Â cause Â of Â this, Â they Â do Â not Â have Â a Â cur-Â rent Â heated Â rivalry. Â Without Â high Â stakes Â games Â putting Â emotions Â on Â edge Â and Â excitement Â to Â build, Â there Â are Â fewer Â op-Â portunities Â to Â bring Â about Â the Â buzz Â that Â surrounds Â rivalries. Â Perhaps Â as Â the Â Mets Â grow Â and Â go Â through Â their Â transformation Â into Â a Â younger Â and Â more Â sustainable Â club, Â the Â
Thursday, Â April Â 19, Â 2012
rivalries Â that Â once Â made Â stadiums Â shake Â and Â fans Â roar Â will Â come Â back. Â Hopeful-Â ly Â players Â like Â Matt Â Harvey Â and Â Zach Â Wheeler Â will Â thrust Â themselves Â into Â the Â thick Â of Â things Â and Â force Â teams Â to Â take Â the Â Mets Â more Â seriously. Â With Â the Â development Â of Â players Â like Â Lucas Â Duda, Â Jon Â Niese Â and Â Ruben Â Tejada Â â€” Â among Â others Â â€” Â the Â Mets Â are Â gearing Â themselves Â up Â for Â better Â years Â in Â the Â future, Â which Â will Â lead Â to Â more Â wins Â and Â ultimately Â to Â bigger Â and Â better Â rivaliries Â that Â will Â excite Â a Â fan Â base Â that Â LVLQGHVSHUDWHQHHGRIVRPHÂżUH Maybe Â then Â I Â can Â feel Â that Â same Â burning Â desire Â to Â watch Â Philadelphiaâ€™s Â team Â be Â devoured Â by Â smack Â talk Â and Â passion. Â Maybe Â the Â next Â few Â years Â will Â ignite Â the Â rabid Â fan Â inside Â of Â me Â and Â I Â can Â stop Â writing Â columns Â that Â ask Â â€œwhat Â if?â€? Â and Â â€œnext Â year.â€? Â We Â can Â only Â hope, Â the Â fan Â in Â me Â is Â waiting Â to Â be Â unleashed. Â
