Eaglepalooza set for Friday night Caitlin Seale Printz Writer

This Friday, students are encouraged to take a study break and head downtown to experience the new and improved Eaglepalooza. This year’s musical guests appeal to a wide range of ages and musical tastes. The event is free, and the lineup is expected to draw a large crowd from not only the Southern Miss community but also from the Hattiesburg community. The event will kick off at 8 p.m. when alt-rockers Churchill take the stage. Following Churchill, R&B artist Elle Varner will entertain the crowd before the headlining act, American Idol winner and John Mayer tour mate Phillip Phillips performs. Ashley Taber, one of the codirectors of this year’s event is excited for students to see what SGA has been working on for this festival. “The spring has created an opportunity to create hype throughout the community, and I believe

City approves sale of alcohol at festivals Just in time for Eaglepalooza and Hubfest, the Hattiesburg City Council has voted to make it legal to buy and drink alcohol at downtown street festivals. Adopted in February of 1983, Ordinance No. 2103 of the city code made it illegal for a person to possess or consume alcohol in any place maintained by the city, including streets and sidewalks. On Tuesday, the council moved to enact an amendment that will allow the consumption

of alcohol on specific streets for city-sponsored events such as Hubfest. Because the amendment will not go into effect for 30 days, the council also voted to suspend the original ordinance for upcoming events. “It’s just a temporary suspension,” said City Attorney Charles Lawrence. “It’s only suspended in the area where those events are occurring.” “I think it’s a really great idea,” senior communications major Katie Sheridan said. “This is going to let students and Hattiesburg citizens have fun at events both legally and responsibly.”

The Hattiesburg City Council voted Tuesday to enact an ordinance that will allow beer and wine to be sold at downtown festivals.

Though drinking in the streets will now be legal, festivalgoers will have to drink out of cups, not bottles, at the events. Beer and light wines will be available from vendors who already have the proper permits to sell alcohol. This kind of exception to a 30-year-old ordinance shows Hattiesburg is slowly shying away from the city’s strict alcohol policy. Newly elected SGA Vice-President Owen Terry believes the amendment is a necessary step to make events like

Hubfest to hit downtown this weekend April Garon Printz Writer Hubfest is coming to downtown Hattiesburg this Saturday from 9 a.m. until 5 p.m. The one-day festival features a variety of live music, vendors and events throughout the day. There will be four live stages at the event, with musical acts performing constantly from 11:15 a.m. until 5 p.m. between the different stages. Headlining the event are the Rebirth Brass Band from New Orleans and the Lost Trailers, a country group. Other artists performing include Vasti Jackson, Adam Doleac Band, The 6550’s, Charles Carter, Wes Lee, Southbound Crescent, Answered Prayer, Chadd Watson, P-150 and Providence Baptist Church Praise Band. Hubfest is known not only for the live entertainment but for its large vendors selection

Eaglepalooza even more successful. “This amendment will allow for many events that are held in downtown Hattiesburg to receive increased sponsorship from businesses in the Hattiesburg community,” Terry said. “I am very excited to see our city’s commitment to ensuring the quality of the variety of festivals that we host each year.” While drinking will only be legal in the downtown streets that will be closed to traffic during the events, the amendment is considered a step in the right direction for students who want Hattiesburg to become more accepting of the “party culture” of most typical college towns. “I think it’s a great move on the city’s part to show that they want to stay dedicated to the Southern Miss community as the university and the city continue to grow,” media productions major Jase Payne said. “I think this is definitely going to help the city draw more shows and attractions that will not only benefit downtown but will display Hattiesburg as a premier college atmosphere.”

as well. There will be more than 200 vendors at Hubfest. Food vendors include Brownstone’s, Georgia Blue, La Mexicana, Morgan’s on Main, Sweet Peppers Deli, The Chill Factory, The Coopertown Café, The Little Griddle, The Mississippi Ice Cream Factory and more. “There will be a variety of arts and crafts, from really unique objects to fun traditional southern crafts, as well as food vendors from local restaurants and classic festival food,” said Elizabeth Radley, communications and events director at Area Development Partnership and event organizer. Local businesses and non-profit

The package includes two VIP passes to go backstage and meet Phillip Phillips, a signed Eaglepalooza poster from the lineup and a copy of Phillips’s de-

organizations will be represented in booths at the event as well.

Within the vendor area is the Juried Arts section, according to the festival guide. This area features only fineart items, including paintings and pottery. Vendors in this area are approved by a selection committee. The Saenger Theatre, presenting sponsor of the event, will also have events going on throughout the day as part of Hubfest including free screenings of family friendly movies and an educational USO display. Students and the Southern Miss community are encouraged to take part in Hubfest. “It’s a great way to get involved more in the Hattiesburg community and get to know downtown better,” said Meagan Holcomb of ADP.

Grab a bite to eat at one of the many restaurants downtown and snag a spot for the power-packed Eaglepalooza lineup. Vendors will also be present at the event with snacks and other goodies for concertgoers.

“I can’t wait to see what the event has in store this year,” senior biochemistry major John Caleb Grenn said. “I’m a huge Phillip Phillips fan. I always get his single ‘Home’ stuck in my head. I can’t wait to see him in person. I’m going to totally fan-girl out.” The stage will be set up Main and New Orleans Streets. Attendees can enter the event from Eaton, Batson, Pine and Front Streets. A trolley will be available

for students and will transport them from the Century Park dormitories to downtown. “Get there early if you want a good spot,” co-director Christian Myrick said. “This isn’t going to be like any other Eaglepalooza in the past. We’re confident in saying that this will be the best Eaglepalooza we’ve been able to produce. You don’t want to miss this.”

Greeks gear up for Phi Music Fest

Admission is free, but it is recommended that attendees bring cash for tickets to buy food and games. “Children’s Miracle is important to Phi Mu because we have our own personal hospital,” said Hannah Curtin, who is on the marketing committee for Phi Music Fest. “Since it is located so close to us, we get to visit the children two or three times a year. Being able to see where our money goes and how it helps children in need is the best part.” Members of the Southern Miss and surrounding Hattiesburg communities are welcome to attend. Phi Mu is also accepting toy donations for the children at Blair E. Batson Children’s Hospital throughout the week.

Stormy Speaks Chief Copy Editor The women of the Alpha Omicron chapter of Phi Mu sorority at the University of Southern Mississippi will host their third annual Phi Music Fest beginning next Thursday, April 11 to benefit their national philanthropy, Children’s Miracle Network, specifically the Blair E. Batson Children’s Hospital in Jackson. Profit shares will be held at Glory Bound Gyro Co. on April 11 and at Caliente Grille on Friday, April 12. A step competition among the fraternities and sororities on campus to determine Phi Mu’s Best Dance Crew will also be held on Thursday at 4 p.m. at the Payne Center. Participants will choose a song or mix of songs and incorporate Phi Mu and Children’s Miracle Network into their routines. On Saturday, April 13, Phi Music Fest will be held on Pride Field from 2 p.m. to 5 p.m. and will feature live music, food and drinks, games, crafts, and raffle prizes.

AMA to host Pancakes for Parkinson’s The American Marketing Association will host a fundraiser before Saturday’s baseball game. Arielle Edwards Printz Writer

special to the organization. Proceeds from the event, which will be held from 8 a.m. until 2 p.m. Saturday before the baseball game, will benefit the Michael J. Fox Foundation. The cause is dear to the hearts of AMA members because the husband of Liesa Flynn, chair and professor of marketing and fashion merchandising, suffers from Parkinson’s. Rachel Anthony, a senior and member of the association, said they chose this fundraiser to honor Flynn and her husband. “This event is important to me because it is a great way for Southern Miss to support such a wonderful cause that hits so close to home,” Anthony said. Every year, more than 60,000 people are diagnosed with Parkinson’s disease. Flynn’s husband, Rob, was a successful businessman in Tallahassee, Fla. “He was diagnosed with Parkinson’s in 1989 when he was only 42 years old,” Flynn said. “In 2006 he received a deep brain stimulator implant which works like a pacemaker and blocks some of the faulty brain

messages that give Parkinson’s patients the odd movements like tremors and dyskinesia.” This stimulator has helped him to drive again and live a more normal life. Flynn said it is proof that medical research makes a difference in people’s lives. “Rob and I are both totally thrilled and humbled to have the AMA put on this event in Rob’s honor,” Flynn said. “We are even happier that the proceeds go to the Michael J. Fox Foundation. Michael is a hero to us and everyone touched by PD.” Flynn said she is happy to know that Pancakes for Parkinson’s not only helps students learn and raise money for a great cause, it also shows the entire community what Southern Miss students are all about.

Prepping for summer: Joining a gym Carly Tynes Printz Writer It’s almost summertime, which means everyone is eager to get the beach body he or she has dreamt of all winter. What’s your first step to achieving that? Joining a gym. You may have ventured into town after deciding to join a gym, deciding the campus gym just isn’t for you. You may have even taken a stroll into a gym with a cheap monthly membership and an excellent tanning package that comes with the membership. You take one look around and decide, “This is the place for me!” You sign up and vow that you’ll be back the next day, ready to pump that iron harder than ever before. You come back the next day and the sheer amount of machines with weights, seats, handles and levers terrifies you, so you head straight to the treadmill and walk or run quickly, thinking to yourself that you just don’t know how to work a gym. If this sounds like you, you are in luck. On Monday, I decided to join a gym, and after walking in, I realized how extremely intimidating even the “We’re an intimidation-free gym” gyms are. Everyone somehow seems to know exactly what they’re doing the moment they walk in, and rarely do you see the beginners walking around like my friend and I were. Our first day in the gym, we wan-

dered a little bit, laughed whenever we tried working machines that we could not figure out and resulted to running on the treadmill instead of getting full use of the gym. We promised ourselves the next day would be different. If you’re like us, you can’t afford a personal trainer every time you go to the gym. Being a poor college student isn’t fun. After getting fed up with not knowing how to work things properly or even what all the gym offered on day two, we ventured over to an employee and eagerly asked for help. The employee kindly helped us with technique on machines and showed us how to properly work the

circuit training section. I know some of you are rolling your eyes thinking that we are just stupid for not being able to work the thousands of machines in a gym perfectly on our first day, but the truth is, most of you are testing out a gym for the very first time and you’re just as scared as we were on our first day. Now we walk in and do our thing without disturbing other exercising patrons. Here is my advice: If you’re joining a gym for the first time and you’re intimidated, that’s fine. It’s actually normal. If you’re joining a gym and you’re standing around talking, laughing and socializing, that’s not fine. Find someone who can help you make the most of your workout, especially if you venture off campus to a gym that is costing you a monthly fee. The employee helping my friend and I was very serious when she said,

“A lot of people come to a gym to get their money’s worth and change his or her life in a healthier way. So if you stay around in this gym, come here and work out. Don’t make your time at the gym another socializing time, and definitely don’t be scared to ask for help.” I’ve found the ones who stand around and chat annoyingly while pretending to work out look way worse than those who are asking for help or observing others to figure out what to do. If you join a gym, figure out not only how to work yourself out, but how to really work out at a gym. This was an article of opinion by Carly Tynes, a writer for The Student Printz.

PR class promotes USM softball Kyle Smith Sports Editor The Southern Miss softball team will entertain the Memphis Tigers over the weekend, but the games aren’t the only things going on. Several public relations groups in Vanessa Murphree’s Public Relations Campaign class have started their own campaigns in an attempt to get the community more involved with the Southern Miss softball team. The Golden Legacy, one group in Murphree’s class, will host “Leaving a Legacy Day.” The event will occur on Friday afternoon at Shoemaker Square from 2 until 4 p.m. The Golden Legacy will also be hosting a pregame tailgate before Saturday’s doubleheader. Senior public relations major Tyler Stribling, a member of The Golden Legacy, believes that the

weekend can help the softball team get some much needed support from the community. “Our professor assigned us the softball game because softball doesn’t get enough press or student support as baseball or other male sports,” Stribling said. “There are a bunch of talented girls on the team and we hope to give them more support.” Another group in the class, Square1PR, is using the weekend to promote breast cancer awareness. Square1PR will be attending Eaglepalooza on Friday night to pass out flyers, pink ribbons and schedules for the softball team. They will also be at Saturday’s games to promote the cause and entertain fans. Jacob Neal, a senior public relations major and member of Square1PR, said that the group hopes to increase awareness and support for breast cancer,

as well as increase support for the softball team. “A lot of people don’t go to softball games,” Neal said. “We hope to provide a connection between a great team and a great cause to bring people out to the game. We hope this builds a foundation to get people to come and show support.” Southern Hub Communications, also one of the agencies, has made promoting women’s athletics, including Southern Miss Softball, as their main goal. The group has targeted local children, families and youth athletes to promote their message. “We have so many female athletes on our campus that are not only dedicated to their sport, but to their academics as well. The games, especially softball, provide family-friendly entertainment as well as good role-models for young athletes. We have tried to show this to the com-
