SUNY Â Forms Â Campus Â Alliance Â Network By Â Jaleesa Â Baulkman Copy Â Editor Â | Â Jbaulkman75@newpaltz.edu
SUNY Â Chancellor Â Nancy Â Zimpher Â announced Â last Â month Â that Â SUNY Â campus Â presidents Â and Â System Â Adminis-Â tration Â will Â collaboratively Â develop Â and Â implement Â region-Â al Â SUNY Â Campus Â Alliance Â Networks Â to Â expand Â academic Â resources Â and Â course Â availability Â to Â students. Â Â This Â new Â system Â will Â call Â for Â two Â or Â more Â SUNY Â col-Â leges Â in Â a Â region Â to Â share Â administrative Â functions Â in Â an Â effort Â to Â redirect Â limited Â funding Â toward Â academic Â instruc-Â tion Â and Â other Â student-Âsupport Â services. â€œAs Â we Â implement Â a Â rational Â tuition Â policy Â that Â re-Â TXLUHVVWXGHQWVDQGWKHLUIDPLOLHVWRPDNHDJUHDWHUÂżQDQ-Â cial Â commitment Â to Â SUNY, Â it Â isâ€Ścrucial Â that Â we Â make Â good Â on Â their Â investment Â by Â ensuring Â that Â their Â education Â experience Â is Â not Â only Â protected Â but Â also Â enhancedâ€? Â said Â Zimpher. Â â€œFinancial Â constraints Â in Â recent Â years Â have Â result-Â ed Â in Â less Â course Â availability Â on Â our Â campuses.â€? According Â to Â a Â press Â release, Â Zimpher Â will Â recommend Â to Â the Â SUNY Â Board Â of Â Trustees Â that Â President Â of Â SUNY Â Institute Â of Â Technology Â Bjong Â Wolf Â Yeigh Â also Â serve Â as Â president Â of Â Morrisville Â State Â College. Â The Â former Â Morris-Â ville Â President Â Raymond Â Cross Â resigned Â from Â the Â position Â in Â February. Â Â In Â a Â similar Â situation, Â SUNY Â Delhi Â President Â Can-Â GDFH 9DQFNR ZDV DSSRLQWHG WR VHUYH DV RIÂżFHULQFKDUJH at Â SUNY Â Cobleskill Â following Â the Â retirement Â of Â Donald Â Â P. Â Zingale Â who Â stepped Â down Â Aug. Â 3. â€œShared Â leadership Â between Â these Â campuses Â will Â best Â serve Â current Â and Â future Â students Â enabling Â campuses Â to Â en-Â roll Â more Â students, Â hire Â more Â full-Âtime Â faculty Â and Â increase Â course Â offerings,â€? Â said Â Zimpher. Â â€œStrategically Â aligning Â our Â campuses Â where Â appropriate Â and Â implementing Â a Â ratio-Â
nal Â tuition Â policy Â across Â the Â system Â puts Â SUNY Â in Â a Â stron-Â ger Â position Â to Â reverse Â this Â trend Â [of Â less Â course Â availability Â on Â SUNY Â campuses].â€? Zimpher Â said Â she Â does Â not Â want Â the Â Campus Â Alliance Â Networks Â to Â be Â confused Â with Â a Â consolidation Â or Â merger. Â All Â 64 Â SUNY Â campuses Â will Â remain Â open Â and Â they Â each Â will Â retain Â their Â individual Â identity Â such Â as Â name, Â academic Â specialties Â and Â school Â colors. Â This Â union Â will Â enable Â stu-Â dents Â to Â gain Â access Â to Â the Â academic Â resources Â of Â a Â second Â campus Â in Â the Â region. Â Andrew Â Pletch, Â chair Â of Â the Â Computer Â Science Â Depart-Â ment, Â thinks Â that Â the Â SUNY Â Campus Â Alliance Â Network Â is Â a Â logical Â solution Â to Â save Â and Â relocate Â money Â to Â improve Â public Â higher Â education Â institutions Â given Â these Â circum-Â stances. Â â€œWeâ€™re Â getting Â less Â and Â less Â money Â from Â the Â state,â€? Â said Â Pletch. Â â€œWeâ€™ve Â replaced Â it Â with Â tuition Â increases.â€? According Â to Â the Â SUNY Â website, Â SUNY Â campus Â pres-Â idents Â will Â develop Â plans Â to Â â€œemploy Â available Â resources Â PRUH HIÂżFLHQWO\ E\ VKDULQJ VHUYLFHV RQ D VHFWRU UHJLRQDO or Â mission Â basis.â€? Â Â The Â SUNY Â Board Â of Â Trustees Â encouraged Â presidents Â to Â promote Â campus-Âto-Âcampus Â collaboration Â and Â carry-Â out Â strategies Â to Â generate Â cost Â savings, Â build Â capacity Â and Â expand Â student Â services. Â Students Â will Â have Â access Â to Â aca-Â demic Â resources, Â courses Â and Â programs Â at Â additional Â cam-Â puses Â in Â the Â region. SUNY Â Plattsburgh Â will Â be Â linked Â to Â Albany Â and Â New Â Paltz Â in Â this Â cost Â cutting Â plan. Â â€œSUNY Â Campus Â Alliance Â Networks Â will Â expand Â ac-Â cess Â for Â students Â by Â making Â available Â to Â them Â academic Â resources, Â courses, Â and Â programs Â at Â additional Â campuses Â in Â the Â region,â€? Â said Â Zimpher Â in Â a Â press Â release.

Â The Â Legislative Â Gazette Â Faces Â Budget Â Trouble By Â Julie Â Mansmann Â Â Editor-Âin-ÂChief Â | Â Jmansmann60@newpaltz.edu
The Â Legislative Â Gazette, Â a Â staple Â of Â the Â internship Â program Â of Â the Â communication Â and Â media Â department Â of Â SUNY Â New Â Paltz, Â has Â recently Â eliminated Â stipend Â offerings Â for Â interns Â and Â cut Â the Â intern-Â ship Â coordinator Â position Â due Â to Â their Â tightening Â budget. Â Joseph Â Brill, Â who Â served Â as Â both Â deputy Â editor Â and Â internship Â coordinator Â since Â 2005 Â according Â to Â Editor Â James Â Gormley, Â left Â the Â weekly Â newspaper Â on Â Aug. Â 31. Â Publisher Â Alan Â Chartock Â said Â the Â de-Â cision Â to Â cut Â the Â position Â from Â the Â budget, Â in Â addition Â to Â the Â stipends Â previously Â afforded Â to Â student Â interns, Â resulted Â from Â the Â lack Â of Â rev-Â enue Â available Â as Â compared Â to Â the Â costs Â of Â running Â the Â newspaper. Â â€œThere Â is Â not Â a Â newspaper Â in Â America, Â from Â The Â New Â York Â Times Â down, Â that Â has Â not Â experienced Â a Â terrible Â need Â to Â conserve Â based Â on Â everything Â that Â has Â happened Â with Â the Â Internet,â€? Â Chartock Â said. Â â€œThe Â challenges Â we Â face Â are Â identical Â to Â those Â faced Â by Â every Â newspaper Â in Â the Â country.â€? Â Brill Â said Â Gormely Â will Â assume Â his Â newsroom Â duties Â for Â the Â publication Â that Â covers Â state Â politics Â in Â Albany, Â N.Y., Â in Â addition Â to Â becoming Â the Â student Â recruiter. Â Gormely, Â who Â said Â he Â will Â be Â re-Â
cruiting Â interns Â for Â the Â publication Â while Â teaching Â courses Â like Â Public Â Affairs Â Reporting Â and Â Journalism Â 1 Â on Â the Â SUNY Â New Â Paltz Â and Â Albany Â campuses, Â said Â Brillâ€™s Â presence Â will Â be Â missed. Â â€œJoeâ€™s Â personality Â was Â one Â we Â enjoyed Â and Â he Â lightened Â up Â the Â newsroom,â€? Â he Â said. Â â€œAlso, Â while Â I Â was Â on Â different Â campuses Â teach-Â ing, Â Joe Â was Â in Â charge. Â That Â means Â the Â interns Â will Â be Â working Â by Â themselves Â a Â little Â more Â than Â in Â the Â past, Â but Â that Â is Â not Â necessarily Â a Â bad Â thing.â€? Â Chartock Â said Â the Â stipend Â offered Â to Â the Â staff Â comprised Â entirely Â of Â student Â interns Â was Â also Â eliminated Â to Â compensate Â for Â losses Â in Â an Â â€œalready Â tight Â budget.â€? Â The Â stipend Â was Â designed Â to Â help Â the Â student Â interns Â living Â in Â Albany Â while Â working Â for Â the Â Legislative Â Gazette Â full-Âtime Â pay Â their Â rent. Â Internship Â Coordinator Â Robert Â Miller Â said Â the Â obligation Â to Â move Â to Â Albany Â and Â other Â factors Â deter Â some Â SUNY Â New Â Paltz Â stu-Â dents Â from Â enrolling Â in Â what Â he Â described Â as Â an Â excellent Â journalism Â program. Â â€œWhile Â this Â is Â an Â excellent Â internship Â opportunity, Â it Â does Â not Â appeal Â to Â many Â of Â our Â students,â€? Â he Â said. Â Â â€œInterns Â must Â spend Â the Â semester Â in Â Albany. Â Also, Â the Â internship Â is Â focused Â on Â political Â re-Â

porting Â which Â isnâ€™t Â of Â interest Â to Â all Â students.â€? Â Gormely Â agreed Â that Â the Â idea Â of Â political Â reporting Â may Â not Â ap-Â peal Â to Â SUNY Â New Â Paltz Â students Â in Â the Â same Â way Â it Â does Â to Â their Â peers Â in Â Albany Â who Â he Â said Â have Â shown Â more Â interest Â in Â interning Â for Â the Â Legislative Â Gazette Â in Â recent Â years. Â â€œStudents Â who Â go Â to Â SUNY Â Albany Â are Â in Â the Â state Â capital, Â so Â they Â have Â more Â exposure Â to Â government Â and Â politics,â€? Â he Â said. Â â€œIt Â may Â be Â more Â ingrained Â in Â their Â thought Â processes. Â The Â culture Â of Â [the Â New Â Paltz Â campus] Â may Â inspire Â more Â artistic Â writing Â and Â stuff Â thatâ€™s Â not Â necessarily Â political.â€? Â Gormely Â and Â Chartock Â both Â said Â they Â donâ€™t Â think Â the Â elimina-Â tion Â of Â the Â stipend Â will Â have Â a Â great Â effect Â on Â their Â recruitment, Â how-Â ever. Â The Â six Â tuition Â waivers Â available Â to Â students Â with Â qualifying Â grade Â points Â averages Â will Â still Â be Â offered. Â In Â spite Â of Â the Â recent Â â€œtightening Â of Â the Â belt,â€? Â Chartock Â said Â he Â and Â others Â involved Â in Â managing Â the Â Legislative Â Gazette Â will Â be Â able Â to Â ride Â through Â a Â rough Â economic Â patch Â with Â the Â quality Â of Â the Â internship Â program Â intact. Â â€œAs Â long Â as Â weâ€™re Â prudent, Â the Â future Â of Â the Â paper Â is Â not Â in Â danger,â€? Â he Â said. Â

Farm Â Flooding Â Foils Â The Â Season Â By Â Zan Â Strumfeld Â A&E Â Editor Â | Â Sstrumfeld34@newpalt.edu
While Â the Â town, Â village Â and Â campus Â have Â all Â fo-Â cused Â on Â recovering Â from Â Tropical Â Storm Â Irene, Â local Â New Â Paltz Â farms Â donâ€™t Â even Â know Â where Â to Â begin. As Â of Â Sept. Â 4, Â local Â farms Â in Â New Â York Â lost Â a Â total Â of Â 140,000 Â acres Â and Â about Â $45 Â million Â in Â damage, Â according Â to Â The Â New Â York Â Times.

Â These Â events Â consist Â of Â the Â All Â Class Â Dinners, Â Heri-Â tage Â Alumni Â Lunch Â and Â the Â Lantern Â Society Â Dinner. Â â€œThe Â most Â attended Â event Â on Â the Â weekend Â is Â the Â Lan-Â tern Â Society Â Dinner,â€? Â said Â McCarthy. Class Â members Â from Â 1961 Â are Â given Â lanterns Â and Â re-Â
enact Â New Â Paltzâ€™s Â moving Â up Â ceremony Â on Â Friday Â night Â where Â they Â receive Â 50-Âyear Â medallions. Â The Â campus Â used Â to Â hold Â Lantern Â Night Â every Â year Â starting Â in Â 1929 Â until Â 1969, Â according Â to Â McCarthy. Â She Â said Â this Â was Â when Â each Â graduating Â student Â would Â carry Â a Â lantern Â onto Â the Â main Â quad Â where Â they Â then Â would Â arrange Â themselves Â in Â a Â circle Â and Â sing Â songs Â for Â graduation. Â The Â corresponding Â yearâ€™s Â committee Â decides Â the Â theme Â for Â each Â reunion. Â This Â yearâ€™s Â theme Â is Â â€œRecon-Â nect, Â Remember Â & Â Relive.â€? Â Another Â aspect Â decided Â by Â this Â yearâ€™s Â committee Â was Â that Â the Â class Â of Â 1961 Â gets Â a Â separate Â reunion Â in Â order Â to Â reminisce Â and Â reconnect Â with Â each Â other. The Â Heritage Â Alumni Â Lunch Â will Â be Â held Â on Â Friday, Â Sept. Â 23 Â at Â noon Â and Â the Â speaker Â for Â this Â year Â will Â be Â Dr. Â Heinz Â Meng, Â biology Â professor Â of Â New Â Paltz Â from Â 1951 Â until Â 2002. Â Meng Â was Â selected Â to Â talk Â by Â the Â alumni Â com-Â

mittee Â because Â of Â his Â contribution Â to Â New Â Paltz Â and Â the Â community, Â according Â to Â a Â reunion Â pamphlet. Â Â One Â different Â program Â the Â Alumni Â Affairs Â department Â is Â trying Â to Â highlight Â would Â be Â wine Â tasting Â with Â Profes-Â sor Â and Â Chair Â of Â Wine Â Studies Â at Â the Â Culinary Â Institute Â of Â America Â Steven Â Kolpan. Â Kolpan Â graduated Â SUNY Â New Â Paltz Â in Â 1971 Â and Â this Â will Â be Â his Â 40th Â anniversary. Â Â Ac-Â cording Â to Â Lisa Â Sandick, Â special Â events Â coordinator Â for Â alumni Â affairs, Â hopes Â this Â event Â brings Â a Â lot Â of Â people Â that Â recognizes Â Koplan Â and Â want Â to Â reconnect, Â although Â this Â is Â a Â different Â type Â of Â event Â from Â the Â norm. â€œWeâ€™re Â hoping Â for Â good Â weather Â and Â a Â good Â turnout, Â even Â though Â itâ€™s Â much Â earlier Â this Â year,â€? Â said Â Sandick.

Love: Only A Click Away? COLLEGE-ONLY DATING SITE NOW AVAILABLE TO NEW PALTZ STUDENTS
By Â Rachel Â Freeman Features Â Editor Â | Â 5DFKHOIUHHPDQ#QHZSDOW]HGX
College Â students Â whose Â priority Â list Â starts Â with Â schoolwork Â and Â ends Â with Â romance Â have Â had Â their Â prayers Â answered Â in Â the Â form Â of Â an Â alternative Â dating Â website Â designed Â exclusively Â for Â those Â enrolled Â in Â university. Â DateMySchool Â launched Â at Â SUNY Â New Â Paltz Â this Â summer Â on Â Aug. Â 18. Columbia Â University Â classmates Â Balazs Â Alexa Â and Â Jean Â Meyer Â founded Â the Â site Â in Â November Â 2010. Â The Â two Â said Â they Â came Â up Â with Â the Â idea Â for Â the Â site Â after Â a Â student Â in Â the Â nursing Â school Â complained Â about Â the Â male Â to Â female Â ratio Â in Â her Â department, Â which Â was Â 90 Â percent Â female. Â Alexa Â and Â Meyer Â faced Â the Â same Â dilemma Â -Â Â as Â the Â business Â school Â was Â 80 Â percent Â male Â -Â Â and Â decided Â to Â do Â something Â about Â it. â€œWe Â realized Â that Â there Â was Â a Â bigger Â market Â â€“ Â lots Â of Â students Â want Â to Â meet Â across Â departments Â and Â campuses. Â And Â VLQFHZHGLGQÂśWÂżQGDEHWWHUVROXWLRQRXW there, Â we Â thought Â DateMySchool Â might Â be Â a Â good Â idea,â€? Â Alexa Â said. Â In Â one Â week, Â 1300 Â Columbia Â stu-Â dents Â registered. Â When Â developing Â the Â service, Â they Â wanted Â safety Â to Â be Â a Â main Â factor. Â They Â created Â advanced Â privacy Â settings Â that Â â€œwere Â unprecedented Â on Â any Â social Â platform,â€? Â Alexa Â said. Â These Â include Â that Â the Â site Â is Â only Â available Â to Â college Â students Â and Â alumni Â with Â active Â school Â accounts, Â members Â are Â unsearchable Â on Â Google Â and Â members Â are Â always Â in Â FRQWURORIZKRFDQVHHWKHLUSURÂżOHV Users Â must Â have Â an Â active Â e-Âmail Â address, Â which Â essentially Â acts Â like Â an Â ID, Â as Â one Â e-Âmail Â equals Â one Â person. Â Members Â can Â regulate Â access Â to Â their Â SURÂżOHV E\ ÂżOWHULQJ FHUWDLQ VFKRROV ages, Â departments Â and Â users Â in Â the Â same Â geographic Â region. Â While Â they Â can Â re-Â strict Â other Â users, Â they Â can Â search Â for Â
them Â as Â well. Â They Â can Â look Â for Â po-Â tential Â partners Â based Â on Â academic, Â geographic Â and Â personal Â backgrounds. Â DateMySchool Â can Â calculate Â the Â num-Â ber Â of Â people Â that Â match Â your Â criteria Â and Â can Â even Â save Â the Â search. The Â site Â also Â boasts Â communication Â features Â such Â as Â instant Â messaging Â and Â inboxing Â to Â help Â members Â converse Â and Â get Â to Â know Â each Â other. Â There Â is Â also Â a Â Q&A Â function, Â where Â participants Â can Â answer Â various Â questions Â and Â compare Â answers Â to Â others Â to Â see Â what Â inter-Â ests Â and Â values Â they Â share. Â Members Â can Â make Â sure Â they Â donâ€™t Â forget Â who Â theyâ€™re Â interested Â in Â by Â clicking Â either Â the Â â€œLikeâ€? Â or Â â€œSaveâ€? Â button. Â This Â ac-Â tion Â sends Â subtly Â playful Â hints Â to Â those Â who Â strike Â your Â fancy. The Â combination Â of Â these Â features Â is Â what Â led Â Andres Â Lalinde Â to Â meet Â Michelle Â Przybyski, Â whom Â he Â married Â on Â April Â 29 Â after Â meeting Â on Â Date-Â MySchool Â in Â late Â January/early Â Febru-Â ary. Â Lalinde Â passed Â by Â a Â DateMySchool Â Ă€\HUDQGÂżJXUHGKHZRXOGJLYHLWDVKRW â€œI Â thought Â to Â myself, Â â€˜There Â are Â two Â great Â things Â about Â this Â site. Â Â One, Â I Â can Â set Â it Â so Â Iâ€™m Â blind Â to Â the Â girls Â in Â my Â pro-Â gram, Â so Â I Â can Â avoid Â awkward Â looks Â in Â the Â hallways,â€™â€? Â Lalinde Â said. Â â€œTwo, Â this Â is Â seriously Â an Â untapped Â market.â€? Lalinde Â also Â found Â the Â mere Â fact Â that Â you Â are Â dealing Â only Â with Â other Â VWXGHQWVWREHLQFUHGLEO\EHQHÂżFLDO+H believes Â that Â there Â is Â â€œan Â implied Â under-Â standing Â that Â the Â person Â you Â communi-Â cate Â with Â is Â going Â to Â be Â busy Â at Â times Â with Â schoolâ€? Â and Â in Â turn Â they Â will Â un-Â derstand Â that Â you Â too Â are Â busy. Â Lalinde Â noted Â that Â sometimes Â when Â you Â date Â someone Â who Â is Â not Â experiencing Â the Â same Â school Â related Â pressures Â as Â you, Â there Â can Â be Â frustration Â over Â not Â having Â enough Â time Â for Â the Â relationship. Lalinde Â met Â Przybyski Â only Â a Â few Â weeks Â after Â signing Â up Â for Â Date-Â MySchool +H FDPH DFURVV KHU SURÂżOH and Â sent Â her Â a Â message, Â which Â led Â to Â
continuous Â talking, Â meet-Âups, Â dates Â and Â eventually Â marriage, Â which Â he Â says Â has Â been Â â€œthe Â best, Â most Â incredibleâ€? Â time Â in Â both Â of Â their Â lives. â€œNeither Â one Â of Â us Â would Â change Â anything Â for Â the Â world,â€? Â Lalinde Â said. Lalinde Â and Â Przybyskiâ€™s Â fairy Â tale Â isnâ€™t Â the Â siteâ€™s Â only Â triumph, Â however. Â According Â to Â Alexa, Â the Â site Â has Â been Â extremely Â successful Â and Â most Â people Â plan Â a Â meeting Â within Â 30 Â minutes Â of Â chatting Â with Â others. Their Â site Â has Â reeled Â in Â 350 Â schools Â and Â has Â reached Â more Â than Â 31,000 Â mem-Â bers Â with Â help Â from Â coverage Â by Â CNN, Â The Â New Â York Â Times, Â 7KH +XIÂżQJWRQ Post Â and Â Time Â Out Â New Â York. Â Â Alexa Â also Â credits Â her Â â€œenthusiastic Â and Â dedi-Â catedâ€? Â team Â with Â spreading Â the Â word. While Â the Â founders Â get Â requests Â from Â campuses Â nationwide Â and Â are Â se-Â lective Â about Â where Â they Â launch, Â they Â knew Â they Â had Â to Â add Â SUNY Â New Â Paltz Â to Â the Â ever-Âgrowing Â list Â of Â participating Â schools.
â€œWith Â a Â diverse Â community Â of Â 8,000 Â students, Â we Â wanted Â to Â help Â IUHVKPDQ ÂżQG IULHQGV RQ FDPSXV XS perclassman Â branch Â out Â to Â new Â folks Â and Â alumni Â meet Â new Â people Â in Â their Â new Â homes,â€? Â Alexa Â said. Â â€œWe Â also Â wanted Â to Â give Â you Â access Â to Â thousands Â of Â other Â students Â in Â Upstate Â New Â York Â schools Â included Â on Â DateMySchool Â for Â those Â who Â want Â to Â discover Â new Â people Â outside Â of Â New Â Paltz. The Â team Â plans Â to Â recruit Â marketing Â interns Â to Â help Â bring Â more Â awareness Â to Â the Â site Â and Â peak Â student Â interest. Though Â the Â site Â has Â mainly Â been Â marketed Â as Â a Â dating Â platform, Â they Â hope Â to Â advertise Â it Â more Â as Â a Â place Â for Â users Â to Â expand Â their Â friend Â base. â€œWeâ€™re Â extending Â usage Â to Â become Â what Â we Â really Â are: Â a Â platform Â to Â dis-Â cover Â new Â people Â online,â€? Â Alexa Â said. Â â€œWhether Â for Â dating, Â relational Â or Â study Â purposes, Â DateMySchool Â is Â the Â go-Âto Â place Â to Â discover Â new Â friends, Â not Â nec-Â essarily Â to Â connect Â with Â old Â ones.â€?

Heâ€™s A Real Fathermucker
GREG OLEARâ€™S LATEST NOVEL SHEDS LIGHT ON MODERN PARENTING By Â Maria Â Jayne Copy Â Editor Â | Â N01864117@newpaltz.edu
New Â Paltz Â resident Â Greg Â Olear Â said Â he Â hopes Â to Â give Â insight Â into Â what Â it Â truly Â means Â to Â be Â a Â dad Â with Â his Â second Â novel. Â The Â book, Â entitled Â â€œFathermucker,â€? Â is Â set Â to Â come Â out Â on Â Oct. Â 4 Â from Â Harper Â Paperback. Â Colum-Â nist Â Lenore Â Skenazy Â of Â the Â blog Â Free Â Range Â Kids, Â describes Â it Â as Â â€œUlysses Â on Â a Â playdate.â€? Â â€œIâ€™ve Â been Â writing Â since Â I Â was Â in Â grade Â school,â€? Â 2OHDUVDLGÂł,FRPSOHWHGP\ÂżUVWQRYHOZKLOHDVH-Â nior Â at Â Georgetown, Â where Â I Â went Â to Â college, Â and Â wrote Â several Â more Â in Â my Â twenties. Â I Â would Â say Â I Â became Â serious Â about Â it Â around Â age Â 22.â€? Â Olear Â is Â the Â senior Â editor Â of Â the Â literary Â website, Â The Â Nervous Â Breakdown, Â author Â of Â Totally Â Killer Â DQGDSURIHVVRURIÂżFWLRQDW0DQKDWWDQYLOOH College. Â He Â draws Â his Â inspiration Â from Â the Â village Â and Â uses Â this Â unique Â setting Â for Â his Â story. Â â€œI Â live Â in Â New Â Paltz, Â and Â the Â novel Â is Â set Â here, Â quite Â explicitly Â so,â€? Â said Â Olear. Â â€œNew Â Paltz Â is Â the Â only Â place Â Iâ€™ve Â lived Â as Â a Â parent Â and Â its Â parenting Â community Â â€“ Â its Â communal, Â inclusive, Â crunchy, Â lib-Â eral, Â nurturing, Â awesome Â parenting Â community Â â€“ Â is Â the Â only Â one Â Iâ€™ve Â known.â€? Â Olear Â sheds Â light Â on Â the Â very Â secretive Â world Â by Â combining Â witty Â humor Â and Â popular Â culture Â to Â cre-Â ate Â an Â interesting Â storyline Â about Â one Â hectic Â day Â in Â
a Â stay-Âat-Âhome Â fatherâ€™s Â life Â and Â all Â the Â different Â emotions Â that Â go Â along Â with Â it. Â â€œParenting Â can Â be Â a Â lonely Â line Â of Â work, Â and Â I Â mostly Â wanted Â to Â connect Â with Â and Â entertain Â other Â parents,â€? Â Olear Â said. Â â€œThey Â say Â youâ€™re Â supposed Â to Â write Â what Â you Â know, Â and Â I Â did Â that Â LQP\ÂżUVWQRYHOZKLFKLVDERXWDSURIHVVLRQDO assassin. Â This Â time, Â I Â decided Â to Â tackle Â some-Â thing Â a Â bit Â further Â from Â home. Â Oh, Â wait, Â I Â think Â I Â got Â that Â backwards,â€? Â Olear Â joked. His Â humor Â plays Â a Â large Â role Â in Â his Â writing Â as Â well Â as Â in Â his Â daily Â conversation. Â He Â wrote Â this Â novel Â so Â he Â could Â lend Â a Â helping Â hand Â to Â other Â parents Â in Â a Â similar Â situation. Â He Â wants Â par-Â ents Â to Â know Â how Â to Â handle Â every Â annoyance, Â fear, Â worry Â and Â obsession Â that Â may Â arise Â in Â this Â modern Â age. Â Olear Â hopes Â â€œFathermuckerâ€? Â will Â become Â a Â sort Â of Â stay-Âat-Âhome Â handbook Â for Â fa-Â thers Â age Â 25-Â60. Â Â Olear Â is Â currently Â working Â on Â a Â new Â novel Â and Â a Â few Â screenwriting Â projects. Â â€œBut Â I Â havenâ€™t Â had Â much Â time Â to Â write, Â be-Â cause Â itâ€™s Â the Â summer,â€? Â he Â said. Â â€œAnd Â Iâ€™m Â a Â Fa-Â thermucker.â€? He Â currently Â runs Â a Â parenting Â site Â called Â Fathermucker: Â The Â Blog Â at Â Fathermucker.com, Â which Â features Â guest Â essays Â about Â modern Â par-Â enting Â and Â the Â blurring Â of Â traditional Â gender Â roles.

SCHOOL OF BUSINESS SEEKS NOMINATIONS FOR 2012 HALL OF FAME By Katie Kocijanski Asst. Copy Editor | firstname.lastname@example.org
The School of Business is currently seeking nomi- nations for it’s 2012 Hall of Fame. This year will be the 11th year for the awards. Cat- egories include “Student Leader of the Year,” “Alum- nus of the Year,” “Business Person of the Year” and “Dean’s Award of Excellence.” Originally established in 2001, Dean Hadi Salavi- tabar said he thought of the idea when he made a trip to SUNY Binghamton, his Alma mater, where they had a small-scale version of a hall. Salavitabar said he asked himself, “how can I do that and meet a couple of goals for the School of Busi- ness?” He wanted to recognize the outstanding mem- bers of the School of Business family along with “in- creasing the amount of attention for their educational activities.” The Hall of Fame has “had more success” than Sa- lavitabar ever thought it would. According to the dean, it is a useful way for the School of Business to build a great reputation with the community. As a result a large number of community members became more committed to educational activities and student pro- grams. “It’s been a pleasure to recognize those that go above and beyond to improve the programs,” Salavi- tabar said. 4XDOL¿FDWLRQV IRU WKH ³%XVLQHVV 3HUVRQ RI WKH Year” include being successful in the Hudson Valley region, hiring people and improving the work environ- ment. They must also be involved in the educational future of SUNY New Paltz students by offering in- ternships and possibly future employment upon gradu- ation. “It’s a two way street. If businesses are involved with the school and the school with businesses, the businesses will feedback what they need to be success- ful to the school,” said Vinnie Cozzolino, 2011 busi- ness person of the year. “Which will produce students with those skills who will then bring those solutions back to the businesses. Everybody wins.” Cozzolino founded the Solar Energy Consortium, a renewable energy business. According to Salavitabar, ”Student Leader of the Year,” is someone who goes above and beyond what is expected of them as a student. They will have made DVLJQL¿FDQWGLIIHUHQFHRQFDPSXVDQGKHOSHGWKHVWX- dent population, possibly by bringing a new educa- tional program to campus.

Who Let the Boars Out?
FERAL SWINE WREAK HAVOC ON UPSTATE FARMS AND CROPS By Maria Jayne Copy Editor | N01864117@newpaltz.edu
Boar hunter in the northeast can rejoice: feral swine are invading New York. “Feral swine, also known as wild boars, wild hogs, razor- backs and Russian boars, are not native to New York. The term feral swine includes the Eurasian wild boars, domestic pigs that have escaped from farms and ‘gone wild’ and hybrids of the two,” said Kelly Stang of the New York State Department of Environmental Conservation (DEC). Feral swine reproduce rapidly when they hit seven or eight months of age and are capable of adapting to nearly any envi- ronment. The swine are wreaking havoc on farms and crops be- cause their strong appetites are never satiated. They weigh be- tween 400 and 700 pounds and their size makes them capable of destroying wetlands by rolling through the mud, or wallowing. According to the DEC, feral swine directly compete with deer, bear, turkey, squirrel and waterfowl for food. They con- sume the nests and eggs of ground nesting birds and reptiles and kill and eat fawns and young domestic livestock. They also have razor sharp tusks, can be aggressive toward humans and
their pets and can transmit serious diseases such as swine bru- cellosis, E. coli, trichinosis, and pseudorabies to livestock and humans. Feral swine are breeding in four counties in central New York, according to a federal study done last year with funding from New York’s Invasive Species Council. “There are feral swine in New York, however, most of the reports consist of one or two animals and they are scattered throughout New York. The largest reported concentration of fe- ral swine is in DEC Region 7 Cortland, Onondaga, Cayuga and Tioga Counties in central New York,” Stang said. The problem with having a few wild boars in one area is that it leads to thousands in only a few years because of their breeding habits. “The DEC is working to eradicate feral swine from N.Y. Therefore, hunters with a small game license may shoot and keep feral swine at any time and in any number. We do ask hunters to report any feral swine sightings or shootings to the DEC,” Stang said. These hunts are taking place so the problem does
not get as serious as it already is in southern states. Accord- ing to biologists, there are currently over 2 million feral hogs in Texas mainly inhabiting the Eastern, Southern and Central parts of the state. According to Wildlife Biologist Rick Taylor, this population is steadily increasing as a result of intentional releases, improved habitat, greater wildlife management and better animal husbandry.

Three Â faculty Â members Â of Â the Â School Â of Â Fine Â & Â Performing Â Arts Â have Â received Â grants Â from Â The Â New Â York Â Foundation Â for Â the Â Arts Â (NYFA). Â Adjunct Â Professor Â Barb Â Smith, Â Â Pro-Â fessor Â Jamie Â Bennett Â and Â Associ-Â ate Â Professor Â Emily Â Puthoff Â secured Â $7,000 Â each Â from Â the Â foundation.

Â The Â Fellows Â were Â select-Â ed Â by Â panels Â of Â their Â peers Â assembled Â with Â representatives Â from Â each Â disci-Â pline. Â NYFA Â awards Â grants Â are Â given Â to Â artists Â who Â apply Â online Â in Â mid-Â October.

Â
Â Smith, Â who Â received Â the Â fellow-Â ship Â in Â Crafts/Sculpture, Â said Â she Â was Â honored Â to Â receive Â the Â fellowship. Â â€œHaving Â my Â work Â recognized Â by Â NYFA Â provides Â support Â and Â gener-Â ates Â a Â great Â deal Â of Â momentum,â€? Â said Â Smith.â€œThe Â experience Â has Â been Â both Â wonderful Â and Â unbelievable.â€? Â Puthoff, Â who Â received Â the Â grant Â in Â Digital Â and Â Electronic Â Arts Â said Â she Â is Â deeply Â honored Â to Â be Â recognized Â as Â a Â female Â artist. Â Â â€œI Â am Â also Â very Â pleased Â to Â be Â recognized Â in Â a Â creative Â category Â in Â which Â women Â have Â been Â traditionally Â underrepresented,â€? Â said Â Puthoff. Â Both Â artists Â said Â the Â monetary Â gain Â from Â the Â awards Â will Â be Â an Â asset Â to Â their Â future Â work Â as Â the Â fellowship Â affords Â them Â the Â freedom Â to Â pursue Â larger Â projects, Â travel Â and Â experiment Â and Â purchase Â the Â equipment Â they Â need Â for Â future Â endeavors. Recent Â graduate Â of Â New Â Paltzâ€™s Â MFA Â program, Â Smith Â said Â the Â grant Â will Â give Â her Â an Â advantage Â most Â young Â artists Â do Â not Â have, Â offering Â her Â the Â space Â and Â means Â to Â create Â things Â she Â otherwise Â would Â not Â have Â been Â
able Â to Â realize. Â Â â€œIt Â can Â be Â very Â easy Â to Â quit Â work-Â ingâ€”you Â leave Â the Â familiar Â structure Â of Â school, Â your Â graduate Â school Â com-Â PXQLW\GLVSHUVHVDQGLWFDQEHÂżQDQ FLDOO\ GLIÂżFXOW WR PDLQWDLQ DQ DFWLYH studio Â practice,â€?

Â Â I Â am Â utilizing Â a Â portion Â of Â the Â award Â to Â set Â up Â a Â studio, Â which Â will Â have Â a Â considerable Â impact Â on Â both Â my Â thinking Â and Â making.â€? Â Â Smith Â said Â that Â her Â success Â is Â due Â in Â part Â to Â the Â inspirational Â environ-Â ment Â of Â New Â Paltz. â€œI Â was Â compelled Â to Â apply Â to Â New Â Paltz Â because Â of Â the Â quality Â of Â work Â I Â saw Â coming Â out Â of Â the Â Metal Â Program. Â Â I Â was Â inspired Â by Â the Â level Â of Â rigor Â and Â thoughtfulness, Â the Â passion Â for Â mak-Â ing Â and Â the Â professional Â accomplish-Â ments Â of Â prominent Â faculty Â Myra Â Mimlitsch-ÂGray Â and Â Jamie Â Bennett, Â as Â well Â as Â many Â alumni Â from Â the Â pro-Â gram,â€? Â Â said Â Smith. Â â€œI Â can Â only Â hope Â that Â my Â successes Â could Â inspire Â others Â in Â the Â way Â that Â these Â individuals Â have Â inspired Â me.â€?

Bruce Beresford directs this Woodstock-based comedy about an uptight New York City lawyer who takes her two spirited teenagers to her hippie motherâ€™s farmhouse in the countryside for a family vacation. What was meant to be a weekend getaway quickly turns into a summer adventure of romance, music, family secrets, and self-discovery.
Excitable, emotional Lynn is at the center of a whirlwind of a family reunion, on the eve of her estranged sonâ€™s wedding. Family dynamics have never been more intense as this roller-coaster drama careens between Lynnâ€™s on-going warfare with her ex-husband and his wife, the alarming behavior of Lynnâ€™s other three children, and her motherâ€™s and sistersâ€™ derision and reproach.
When entertainer Jorge del Pino loses his wife and son in the dying days of the Spanish Civil War, thereâ€™s not much left to fear. Jobs are scarce and hunger plentiful. Jorge, his vaudeville partner Enrique and their band of traveling artists oppose the brutal repression of the Franco regime. Miguel, a precocious child, joins the troupe, challenging the embittered Jorge to once again embrace life. The story meanders from its dreamy opening through the darkest post war days, ultimately spanning the centuries.

THE DOCTOR IS IN: KATIEâ€™S â€œDOCTOR WHOâ€? CONFIDENTIAL
By Â Katherine Â Speller Copy Â Editor Â | Â Katherine.firstname.lastname@example.org
Hey there Whovians! â€œDoctor Whoâ€? has picked up in the last few weeks, returning from a lengthy summer hiatus. The Tumblr communities DUH UHMRLFLQJ DV WKH VFLHQFH Ă€FWLRQ QHUGHU\ is restored. True to form, show runner Steven Moffat has made a violent splash on the Who-niverse in only a few episodes. As always, there are spoilers to come. Before the summer break, we found out River Song was actually Amy and Roryâ€™s daughter, but we didnâ€™t get much about her childhood. In the half-season opener â€œLetâ€™s Kill Hitler, â€? we get just that. We start with a little back story on Rory and Amy and their friend Mels. Yeah, the friend theyâ€™d never mentioned before but named their daughter (Melody) after? That one. We got to see Rory, Amy and Mels as a childhood trio getting into all sorts of shenanigans and it was cute. Soon we discover Mels is an earlier regeneration of River (who can regenerate because sheâ€™s a TARDIS baby). Long story short, Mels regenerates and is suddenly super-hot Alex Kingston who gives this hilarious promiscuous performance as she gets used to her new regenerated form, steals clothes from German aristocrats and tries to kill the Doctor. In terms of the major arc, thatâ€™s about all we get. The next two episodes, â€œNight Terrorsâ€? and â€œThe Girl Who Waitedâ€? both offer a bit of character development (some amazing emotional scenes for Amy (Karen Gillan) in the latter), but since they were originally supposed to air earlier in the season. They offer little to no plot advancement. Next weekâ€™s â€œThe God Complexâ€? looks to be another episode where Moffat plays on the childhood fears of his fans. If you need me Iâ€™ll be curled up behind the couch.

Barn Owl Still Soaring DUO TO RELEASE EXCITING, NEW EXPERIMENTAL ALBUM By Â Ross Â Hamilton Contributing Â Writer Â | Â N01955992@newpaltz.edu
Barn Owl Lost in the Glare
On Â Sept. Â 13, Â San Â Francisco Â duo Â Barn Â Owl Â will Â re-Â lease Â their Â sixth Â album Â (and Â second Â full-Âlength Â release Â this Â year Â following Â the Â excellent Â Shadowland) Â titled Â Lost Â in Â the Â Glare. Â Since Â 2006, Â Jon Â Porras Â and Â Evan Â Caminiti Â have Â been Â playing Â their Â own Â mix Â of Â drone, Â psychedelic Â and Â folk Â music Â with Â a Â gritty Â western Â feel. Â On Â this Â release, Â WKHWZRPDLQO\XVHHOHFWULFJXLWDUDQG)DUÂżVDRUJDQZLWK DGGLWLRQDO NH\ERDUGV ÂżHOG UHFRUGLQJV DQG PDQLSXODWHG cassette Â tapes. Â As Â with Â previous Â Barn Â Owl Â records Â the Â at-Â mosphere Â is Â rich Â and Â vibrant, Â joining Â the Â celestial Â guitars Â with Â the Â calming Â hum Â of Â the Â organ. Â On Â occasion Â the Â two Â branch Â out Â into Â more Â a Â intense, Â distorted Â sound, Â breaking Â up Â the Â record Â and Â giving Â the Â listener Â some Â breathing Â space Â before Â ejecting Â them Â into Â a Â grand Â and Â inquisitive Â vacuum Â of Â sound. Â The Â structure Â of Â Lost Â in Â the Â Glare Â is Â reminiscent Â of Â other Â Barn Â Owl Â releases, Â with Â the Â earlier Â tracks Â easing Â into Â the Â more Â spacey Â exploration Â of Â the Â later Â songs. Â The Â album Â kicks Â off Â with Â â€œPale Â Star,â€? Â an Â entrancing Â mix Â of Â reverb Â
drenched Â lead Â guitar Â and Â industrial Â keyboard Â and Â reso-Â nant Â guitar Â tones. Â The Â second Â Â track, Â â€œTuriya,â€? Â introduces Â drums Â into Â the Â dusty Â landscapes Â with Â a Â serious Â western Â twang. Â â€œDevotion Â Iâ€? Â plays Â up Â the Â genre Â in Â an Â incredibly Â detailed Â atmosphere, Â contrasting Â the Â heavy Â riffage Â on Â â€œThe Â Darkest Â Night Â Since Â 1683.â€? Â After Â this Â dark Â crescendo, Â the Â impressive Â guitar Â work Â and Â writing Â shine Â on Â â€œTemple Â of Â the Â Winds,â€? Â with Â â€œMidnight Â Tideâ€? Â reintroducing Â a Â percus-Â sive Â pulse Â back Â into Â the Â sound. Â â€œLight Â Echoesâ€? Â begins Â with Â a Â beautiful Â solo Â guitar Â as Â others Â slowly Â emerge Â with Â the Â ra-Â GLDQWRUJDQXQWLOSLHUFLQJJXLWDUWRQHVWDNHRYHU7KHÂżQDO track, Â â€œDevotion Â II,â€? Â features Â relatively Â robust Â drumming Â slowly Â evolving Â into Â the Â last Â dirty Â cries Â of Â distorted Â guitar Â and Â feedback. The Â later Â tracks Â are Â where Â Barn Â Owl Â really Â shines, Â not Â only Â showing Â Porrasâ€™ Â and Â Caminitiâ€™s Â great Â guitar Â work, Â but Â expanding Â and Â morphing Â the Â atmosphere Â of Â sound Â with Â each Â track. Â The Â heavily Â distorted Â doom Â on Â â€œThe Â Darkest Â Night Â Since Â 1683â€? Â allows Â the Â subsequent Â songs Â to Â open Â up, Â as Â the Â hollowness Â of Â the Â sound Â is Â subtly Â probed Â by Â acoustic Â JXLWDUVDQGDKHDOWK\GRVHRI)DUÂżVDRUJDQUHSODFLQJWKH harmonium Â found Â on Â many Â previous Â releases).

MUSICIAN OF THE WEEK: OLIVER KAMMERMAN
YEAR: Fourth MAJOR: History HOMETOWN: Binghamton, N.Y.
WHATâ€™S Â YOUR Â INSTRUMENT Â OF Â CHOICE? Â WHY? I Â play Â guitar Â most Â and Â best. Â Itâ€™s Â the Â easiest Â to Â learn Â other Â peopleâ€™s Â tunes Â that Â I Â enjoy. Â I Â love Â singing Â and Â percussion Â as Â well Â though, Â both Â are Â very Â organic Â and Â primal, Â goofy Â and Â more Â naturally Â expressive Â to Â me. Â Less Â in Â the Â way.
WHO Â ARE Â YOU Â CURRENTLY Â LISTENING Â TO? The Â Beatles, Â Seu Â Jorge, Â Parliament Â Funkadel-Â ic, Â The Â Specials, Â Jack Â Black, Â RHCP, Â Sublime
WHO Â ARE Â YOUR Â BIGGEST Â INFLUENCES? Iron Â and Â Wine Â on Â NPR Â Tiny Â Desk, Â Yemen Â Blues, Â Paul Â Simonâ€™s Â Graceland
WHAT Â DO Â YOU Â DO Â WITH Â MUSIC Â ON/OFF Â CAMPUS? Godchilla Â is Â on Â the Â outs Â at Â least Â until Â next Â semester Â if Â not Â longer, Â so Â Iâ€™m Â not Â sure Â whatâ€™s Â going Â to Â hap-Â pen Â with Â that. Â Gettinâ€™ Â it Â on Â with Â a Â new Â group Â called Â Upstate Â Rubdown. Â Super Â talented Â girls Â singing Â and Â playing, Â bringing Â great Â styles Â to Â the Â table Â and Â awesome Â voices Â and Â they Â have Â a Â stage Â presence Â that Â make Â me Â wanna Â work Â on Â my Â game. Â Acoustic Â performance Â at Â least Â for Â a Â while, Â up Â the Â sensitiv-Â ity Â and Â dynamics Â and Â hopefully Â still Â be Â able Â to Â get Â people Â dancing. Â Anyone Â wanna Â play Â some Â percus-Â sion Â for Â us? Â Super Â sensitive? Â Maybe Â some Â african Â or Â alternative Â types Â of Â drums, Â shakers Â bongos, Â tamborines? Â We Â could Â use Â your Â rhythms.
ANY Â ADVICE Â FOR Â ASPIRING Â MUSICIANS?
You Â can Â do Â it. Â No Â shame. Â Be Â someone Â else. Â Itâ€™s Â about Â the Â sound Â youâ€™re Â making, Â not Â you Â and Â your Â image. Â Steal Â from Â everyone, Â just Â admit Â that Â you Â did Â it. CHECK Â OUT Â OLIVER Â KAMMERMAN PERFORMING Â BY Â SCANNING Â THIS Â CODE Â WITH Â ANY Â SMARTPHONE! Â

GRAPPLING Â WITH Â OUR SEPT. Â 11 Â CARTOON Â BY Â JOSH Â KUSAYWA Â
On Â Sunday, Â there Â was Â one Â phrase Â that Â dom-Â inated Â headlines, Â Facebook Â statuses Â and Â hand-Â made Â signs Â hung Â in Â windows Â across Â New Â York Â City, Â the Â state Â and Â the Â country: Â never Â forget. Â Even Â a Â decade Â later, Â it Â is Â hard Â to Â imagine Â that Â anyone Â wonâ€™t Â remember Â where Â they Â were Â on Â that Â clear Â September Â morning Â when Â they Â heard Â WKHÂżUVWRIWZRKLMDFNHGDLUSODQHVVODPPHGLQWR the Â North Â Tower Â of Â the Â World Â Trade Â Center Â at Â 8:46 Â a.m. Â But Â we Â must Â also Â never Â forget Â that Â one Â ugly Â feeling Â which Â motivated Â terrorists Â to Â take Â the Â lives Â of Â thousands Â of Â others Â -Â Â the Â simi-Â lar Â emotion Â that Â sometimes Â we, Â as Â Americans, Â still Â direct Â at Â people Â of Â different Â cultures Â in Â spite Â of Â what Â we Â should Â have Â learned Â on Â Sept. Â 11, Â 2001. Â Hate. Â 7KH DO4DLGD KLMDFNHUV ZHUH D KDWHIXO group Â of Â people. Â Articles Â and Â bloggers Â cite Â that Â these Â people Â hated Â Americans Â for Â a Â slew Â of Â rea-Â sons: Â the Â nationâ€™s Â support Â of Â an Â Israeli Â nation, Â the Â American Â military Â presence Â in Â Saudi Â Ara-Â bia, Â sanctions Â made Â in Â Iraq Â and Â so Â on Â and Â so Â forth. Â What Â they Â did Â was Â malicious Â and Â wrong, Â DQG QR GHFHQW KXPDQ EHLQJ FDQ MXVWLI\ WKHLU slaughter Â of Â thousands. Â Has Â our Â nation Â proven Â to Â be Â upstanding Â all Â of Â the Â time, Â though? Â The Â answer, Â unfortunately, Â is Â no. Â Since Â

Â But Â make Â no Â mistake: Â the Â deaths Â of Â scores Â of Â innocent Â civilians Â in Â the Â Middle Â East Â and Â elsewhere Â were Â the Â result Â of Â war, Â a Â war Â on Â a Â different Â way Â of Â life Â than Â good Â old Â fashioned Â American Â democracy. Â Each Â year Â when Â we Â come Â upon Â the Â anni-Â versary Â of Â the Â attacks Â on Â the Â World Â Trade Â Cen-Â ter Â and Â the Â Pentagon, Â many Â say Â that Â we Â should Â HPEUDFHÂłWKHZD\ZHZHUHÂ´WKHZHHNDIWHUWKH attacks. Â We Â at Â The Â New Â Paltz Â Oracle Â feel Â that Â is Â only Â partially Â true. Â We Â feel Â that Â we Â should Â not Â let Â our Â sadness Â become Â bitterness Â in Â the Â way Â it Â did Â for Â some Â wondering Â why Â their Â aunt Â or Â their Â neighbor Â or Â their Â friend Â was Â taken Â from Â them Â XQMXVWO\ We Â understand Â that Â everyone Â grieves Â in Â different Â ways: Â some Â of Â us Â attend Â memorials Â each Â year Â on Â 9/11, Â some Â of Â us Â pray Â and Â some Â of Â us Â donâ€™t Â want Â to Â be Â reminded Â of Â the Â attacks Â at Â all. Â That Â being Â said, Â it Â is Â only Â natural Â that Â those Â of Â us Â who Â lost Â loved Â ones Â feel Â hurt Â and Â frus-Â trated Â when Â thinking Â about Â 9/11. Â Things Â were Â taken Â from Â us Â -Â Â people Â were Â taken Â from Â us. Â Werenâ€™t Â many Â of Â us Â calling Â for Â retaliation Â

It Â has Â been Â 10 Â years Â since Â one Â of Â the Â most Â catastrophic Â events Â in Â American Â his-Â tory Â and Â much Â has Â happened Â since Â then. Â This Â tragedy Â has Â incited Â a Â greater Â sense Â of Â nationalism Â in Â America Â and Â a Â sense Â of Â â€œunityâ€? Â among Â its Â people. Â Itâ€™s Â troubling Â to Â me Â that Â it Â takes Â such Â a Â horrible Â event Â to Â bring Â a Â group Â of Â people Â together, Â but Â that Â isnâ€™t Â the Â point. Â Since Â 9/11, Â there Â have Â been Â over Â 66,000 Â civilian Â deaths Â in Â Iraq Â (some Â sources Â claim Â over Â 100,000). Â Thatâ€™s Â one Â 9/11 Â every Â four Â months Â for Â the Â past Â seven Â years. Â Why Â does Â this Â go Â unnoticed? Â Are Â ,UDTLFLYLOLDQVOHVVVLJQLÂżFDQWWKDQ$PHUL cans? Â Sure Â the Â tragedy Â on Â 9/11 Â touched Â many Â peopleâ€™s Â lives Â and Â may Â have Â person-Â ally Â affected Â a Â good Â number Â of Â Americans, Â but Â the Â terrorism Â of Â the Â U.S. Â government Â is Â equally Â as Â bad Â as Â any Â terrorism Â in Â the Â world Â right Â now Â -Â Â terrorism. Â 7HUURULVPLVFRPPRQO\GHÂżQHGDVWKH killing Â of Â civilians, Â or Â more Â commonly, Â â€œthe Â use Â of Â violence Â and Â intimidation Â in Â the Â pursuit Â of Â political Â aims.â€? Â The Â United Â Statesâ€™ Â involvement Â in Â Iraq Â over Â the Â past Â ten Â years Â is Â the Â epitome Â of Â terrorism. Â This Â nation Â has Â decended Â upon Â the Â Middle Â East Â and Â wreaked Â havoc Â in Â countries Â like Â Paki-Â stan, Â Afghanistan, Â and Â Iraq. Â This Â nationâ€™s Â failed Â pursuit Â of Â â€œweapons Â of Â mass Â destruc-Â tionâ€? Â is Â the Â cause Â of Â the Â utter Â embarrass-Â ment Â I Â have Â felt Â as Â an Â American Â over Â the Â past Â decade. Â Over Â $900 Â billion Â of Â taxpayer Â money Â has Â gone Â to Â waste Â over Â the Â past Â ten Â years Â trying Â to Â maintain Â our Â alpha Â status Â in Â international Â affairs. Â 7RPHZDULVQHYHUMXVWLÂżDEOH&LYLO ian Â deaths Â will Â inevitably Â occur Â and Â outside Â
countries Â will Â get Â involved, Â pouring Â more Â IXHORQWKHÂżUH7KHSLQQDFOHRIHPEDUUDVVLQJ nationalism Â we Â have Â felt Â in Â the Â United Â States Â rose Â with Â the Â assassination Â of Â Osama Â Bin Â Laden. Â Bin Â Laden Â was Â indeed Â responsible Â for Â many Â terrorist Â activities Â in Â the Â world, Â includ-Â ing Â 9/11, Â but Â was Â our Â assassination Â of Â him Â Â just? Â This Â man Â was Â an Â unarmed Â victim Â and Â deserved Â a Â fair Â trial, Â just Â as Â with Â all Â people Â in Â the Â American Â legal Â system. Â What Â kind Â of Â democratic Â principle Â is Â it Â to Â â€œshoot Â on Â sight?â€? Â No Â matter Â what Â any Â human Â being Â did, Â it Â is Â ratherold-Âfashioned Â to Â kill Â a Â man Â on Â sight Â if Â he Â is Â unarmed. Â Another Â troubling Â aspect Â of Â the Â situa-Â tion Â is Â that Â we Â just Â dumped Â his Â body Â into Â the Â Atlantic Â Ocean. Â This Â is Â just Â absurd Â and Â com-Â pletely Â bloodthirsty Â to Â me. Â If Â the Â Iraqis Â came Â to Â the Â U.S. Â and Â assassinated Â George Â Bush Â and Â dumped Â his Â body Â in Â the Â ocean, Â many Â people Â would Â probably Â be Â enraged. Â And Â no, Â this Â is Â not Â a Â different Â scenario Â because Â George Â Bush Â is Â responsible Â for Â far Â more Â civilian Â deaths Â than Â Osama Â Bin Â Laden Â could Â have Â ever Â dreamed Â of. Â They Â are Â essentially Â opposite Â sides Â of Â the Â same Â coin. Â So Â while Â I Â will Â always Â remember Â the Â tragic Â and Â horrifying Â events Â that Â happened Â miles Â away Â from Â me Â in Â New Â York Â City Â in Â 2001, Â I Â will Â equally Â remember Â the Â tens Â of Â thousands Â of Â civilians Â who Â were Â massacred Â at Â the Â hands Â of Â the Â United Â States Â over Â the Â past Â ten Â years.

Every Â institution Â has Â their Â traditions Â and Â leg-Â ends;Íž Â and Â SUNY Â New Â Paltz Â has Â Hugo Â the Â Hawk. Â Â The Â tradition Â began Â many Â years Â ago Â with Â profes-Â sor Â and Â falconry Â expert Â Heinz Â Meng, Â who Â served Â on Â the Â faculty Â for Â 50 Â years. Â Â According Â to Â SUNY Â New Â Paltzâ€™s Â website, Â the Â hawk Â represents Â the Â academics, Â athletic Â and Â personal Â attitudes Â associated Â with Â the Â college. Â Â While Â the Â hawk Â is Â a Â celebrated Â tradition, Â including Â participation Â in Â commencement, Â our Â be-Â loved Â mascot Â has Â not Â always Â been Â so Â lucky. â€œAbout Â 5 Â years Â ago Â I Â saw Â the Â old Â mascot Â cos-Â WXPH VLWWLQJ RQ WKH Ă€RRU LQ DQ HTXLSPHQW URRPÂ´ VDLG %DVHEDOO +HDG &RDFK 0DWW *ULIÂżWKV Âł,W ZDV worn Â and Â ragged Â and Â hadnâ€™t Â been Â used Â in Â a Â while.

Â Post-ÂSeason Â Baseball Â Predictions
By Â Zach Â Higgins Contributing Â Writer Â | Â N02492353@newpaltz.edu
Baseballâ€™s Â regular Â season Â is Â unfortunately Â coming Â to Â an Â end, Â but Â this Â yearâ€™s Â post-Âseason Â has Â the Â potential Â to Â be Â some-Â thing Â extraordinary. Â In Â the Â AL Â East, Â the Â Yankees Â are Â slowly Â distancing Â them-Â selves Â from Â the Â second Â place Â Red Â Sox. Â As Â of Â Sept. Â 14 Â the Â Bronx Â Bombers Â have Â a Â 3.5 Â game Â lead Â over Â their Â arch Â rivals. Â Other Â divisions Â like Â the Â AL Â Central Â and Â the Â NL Â East Â seem Â to Â be Â foregone Â conclusions Â barring Â any Â monumental Â collapse. (Ahem. Â 2007 Â Mets, Â which Â I Â still Â have Â not Â gotten Â over). Â The Â Tigers Â have Â a Â commanding Â 12 Â game Â lead Â and Â look Â to Â be Â a Â formidable Â opponent Â in Â the Â playoffs, Â with Â MVP Â candi-Â date Â and Â American Â League Â Cy Â Young Â Award Â favorite Â Justin Â Verlander Â commanding Â their Â rotation. Â The Â Phillies Â (who Â have Â the Â best Â record Â in Â baseball Â as Â of Â Sept. Â 14 Â at Â a Â cool Â 94-Â50) Â have Â a Â 10 Â game Â edge Â over Â the Â Wild Â Card Â leading Â Braves Â and Â continue Â to Â show Â that Â they Â are Â as Â good Â as Â they Â were Â advertised Â at Â the Â seasonâ€™s Â commencement. One Â of Â my Â favorite Â aspects Â of Â sports Â is Â the Â speculation. Â
Last Â year, Â I Â accurately Â predicted Â that Â the Â San Â Francisco Â Giants Â were Â going Â to Â win Â the Â World Â Series. Â I Â hope Â for Â the Â same Â luck Â this Â time Â around. Â As Â of Â right Â now, Â the Â playoff Â outlooks Â is Â as Â follows: Â The Â American Â League Â playoff Â teams Â would Â be Â the Â Yankees, Â Tigers, Â Rangers, Â and Â the Â Red Â Sox Â (wild Â card). Â The Â National Â League Â teams Â are Â the Â Phillies, Â Brewers, Â Diamond-Â backs, Â and Â Braves Â (wild Â card). Â Out Â of Â the Â American Â League, Â the Â Tigers Â will Â win Â the Â pennant, Â and Â this Â is Â why: Â Justin Â Verlander. Â I Â believe Â that Â a Â Verlander Â start Â every Â three Â games Â will Â be Â enough Â to Â push Â them Â through Â the Â post-Âseason. Â Their Â offense Â is Â not Â something Â to Â overlook, Â considering Â they Â have Â big Â bats Â like Â Miguel Â Cabrera Â and Â other Â solid Â role-Âplayers Â like Â Jhonny Â Peralta Â and Â Ryan Â Ra-Â burn. Â You Â may Â ask: Â â€œWhy Â not Â the Â Yankees Â or Â the Â Red Â Sox?â€? Â This Â is Â my Â case. Â The Â Yankees Â have Â the Â high-Âpowered Â offense, Â sure, Â but Â their Â pitching Â is Â always Â going Â to Â be Â a Â question Â mark Â in Â my Â mind. Â After Â C.C. Â Sabathia, Â I Â do Â not Â believe Â that Â other Â rotation Â pitchers Â like Â Bartolo Â Colon Â and Â Ivan Â Nova Â will Â get Â the Â job Â done. Â We Â all Â know Â for Â sure Â that Â A.J. Â Burnett Â cannot Â be Â trusted. Â
Thursday, Â September Â 15, Â 2011
I Â pick Â the Â Tigers Â simply Â because Â Verlander Â is Â a Â work-Âhorse Â and Â itâ€™s Â a Â gut Â feeling. 2QWKHRWKHUKDQG,DPYHU\FRQÂżGHQWWKDWWKH%UHZHUV can Â take Â the Â National Â League. Â The Â off-Âseason Â acquisition Â of Â Zack Â Greinke Â and Â the Â mid-Âseason Â trade Â to Â acquire Â Francisco Â â€œK-ÂRodâ€? Â Rodriguez Â were Â important Â in Â shoring Â up Â their Â pitch-Â ing Â staff. Â Their Â closer Â John Â Axford Â has Â been Â a Â stud Â in Â the Â bull-Â pen Â converting Â 42 Â of Â 44 Â saves Â (as Â of Â 9.12.11). Â Their Â offense Â is Â (to Â put Â it Â quite Â ineloquently) Â bananas. Â Ryan Â Braun Â and Â Prince Â Fielder Â are Â the Â best Â 3-Â4 Â combination Â in Â the Â league, Â bar Â none. Â Other Â players Â important Â to Â their Â success Â are Â All-ÂStar Â Rickie Â Weeks Â and Â Corey Â Hart. The Â Brewers Â will Â win Â the Â Fall Â Classic Â in Â six Â games. Â Bold Â prediction, Â indeed, Â but Â itâ€™s Â the Â Brew Â Crewâ€™s Â time Â to Â shine. Â Yovani Â Gallardo Â and Â Zack Â Greinke Â will Â prove Â to Â be Â a Â tough Â task Â for Â opposing Â lineups. Â In Â addition, Â Braun, Â Fielder Â and Â the Â rest Â of Â the Â offense Â will Â be Â overpowering Â and Â the Â long Â ball Â and Â extra-Âbase Â hits Â will Â be Â imperative Â to Â their Â success. Â The Â beauty Â of Â the Â game Â is Â its Â unpredictable Â nature. Â Octo-Â EHUZLOOGHÂżQLWHO\SURYHWREHDFUD]\PRQWK

The team is boasting an average of six training sessions per week including lifting and basic skills.

The Future For Pelfrey WHITE SOX
MANAGING EDITOR With the Mets’ season coming to an end this month, the fan base has already begun speculating the potential personnel moves General Manager Sandy Alderson might add to his vision of the Mets’ future. Besides the obvious concerns of Jose Reyes’ potential departure and the uncer- tainty in the bullpen, many fans are wonder- ing what the future has in store for once-ace Mike Pelfrey. Pelfrey’s season has been a disappoint- ment thus far, highlighted by his 7-11 record and subpar 4.66 ERA, in what was supposed to be a year where he showed maturity and poise on the mound. His stellar 2010 season, where he won 15 games and held together a Mets staff, seems like a distant memory as the inconsistency we once thought plagued the right-hander has returned. After being anointed the ace of the ro- tation by Manager Terry Collins in Spring Training, Pelfrey has not built on his pre- vious season’s dominance and his lack of consistency has led many to question his place in Alderson’s grand scheme for the Mets’ future. One report in The New York Post cited cited a source who speculated that the Mets might look to re-build the team by trading current core pieces of the roster and gearing up for a pennant run by the time prospects Matt Har- vey, Zach Wheeler and others are ready for the big leagues. If this were the case, it would certainly spell the end for a commodity such as Pel- frey. Though he is inconsistent, teams will not forget the brilliance the hurler showed in 2010. His age is prime for a pitcher – which is a reason the Mets will certainly have in mind if and when this decision oc- curs. If the Mets were to trade Pelfrey this winter, there are a few different possibilities I see occurring:
The other ‘Sox are an option as the team might be looking for another right-handed starter to add to their rotation. The Mets might be able to pry a few of the White Soxs’ mid-level prospects such as Tyler Flow- HUVDQG¿OODQHHGDOHJLWLPDWH starting catcher.
METS GET: C Tyler Flowers
The Pirates are an intriguing trade option for any team. With their current surge in the standings, the team and recently-extended GM Neil Huntington might be look- ing to build upon their newfound success. Coupled with the fact they have stockpiled prospects over their years of dismay, the Mets might be able to snag a strong pros- pect due to the dilution the Pirates system might have.
METS GET: P Colton Cain
The Reds could have interest in adding Big Pelf to their start- LQJ¿YHDQGPLJKWEHZLOOLQJWRGRDVZDSRIXQGHUDFKLHYLQJ hurlers. Despite his injury-riddled few seasons Edinson Volquez could be someone the Mets target in a deal with the Reds. When healthy, Volquez is one of the games premier pitchers - much like Pelfrey when he is consistent.
METS GET: P Edinson Volquez
The Yankees will certainly be on the prowl for starting pitchers this offseason, as they currently boast C.C. Sabathia and a bunch of question marks in their rotation. With the upcoming Free Agent starting pitching pool as thin as it is, it is not out of the question that the Yankees might take a gamble on someone like Pelfrey and his obvi- ous upside. The Yanks also have depth in their catching prospects which matches them well with the Mets. METS GET: C Austin Romine
RED SOX The ‘Sox should be searching for pitching depth as the winter rolls around since much of their rotation has been inconsistant throughout this season. The Mets would be wise to target current set-up man Daniel Bard in a package for Pelfrey, as %DUGFRXOGVORWLQDVWKHWHDP¶VFORVHUDQGZRXOGLQVWDQWO\¿OODJODULQJQHHG7KH two teams would be swapping young arms, the only question would be weather the Red Sox would be willing to send the hard throwing right-hander.
