Student, musician Yoho won’t be soon forgotten PARKER COTTON SARA VAN CLEVE

While the campus community grieves the loss of Shawn Yoho, 20, his professors and closest friends wear solemn smiles as they remember their friend’s bright smile and vivacious personality. Yoho, a sophomore communication studies major at UNC, was on his way to California to play with his band when the vehicle he and two others were traveling in was rear-ended.

David Palmer, an assistant professor of communication at the University of Northern Colorado, said Yoho was in his Non-Verbal Communication class last semester and was liked by everyone he met. “He was just an awesome young man,” Palmer said. “He was very genuine, full of life, full of laughter. He was fun to be around. He was very creative, and he was a musician. He was a joy to have as a student. He was a wonderful addition to class, and his input was welcome. When he talked, people listened. It’s just a deep loss for everybody. Life is very fragile.” A handful of Yoho’s close friends at UNC said they will always remember how he was able to make people happy. “Whether you were having a good or bad day, it just seemed like his attitude was contagious,” said Jarrett

Counseling Services UNC also offers confidential visits with licensed psychologists and counselors at the Counseling Center. Students can make appointments at 970351-2496 or by visiting the center at Cassidy Hall on the corner of 10th Avenue and 19th Street from 8 a.m. -- 5 p.m. Monday -- Friday.

You can’t help but just smile instead of cry.” Quintin Myers, a junior history major, said he met Yoho when he was 5 years old when they joined a T-ball team in Aurora. “Shawn and I met before I have recollection of meeting anybody else,” Myers said.

On the outside are Yoho’s initials. On the inside, where Myers can see it while playing, he wrote: “Play hard. It’s for him. RIP.” —Editor’s note: Michael Nowels, a sports reporter for The Mirror, contributed to this report.

Gimmicky re-released movies only expand companies’ profits In less than one month, “Star Wars” fans will flock to movie theaters and spend millions of dollars to see an old movie in a new way when Lucasfilm Ltd. rereleases “Episode I: The Phantom Menace.” This seems to be becoming a trend in Hollywood. Not only is every new blockbuster movie being released in 3D, even when it is entirely unnecessary and more annoying than entertaining, but studios are re-releasing more and more movies after “digitally enhancing” them with the 3D effect.

purchased from The Mirror office.

the classic sci-fi films and other classics may be an even worse idea than when they replaced puppet Yoda with a CGI version. Another recently re-released 3D classic is “Beauty and the Beast.” The 3D effect in new animated movies is annoying and unnecessary, so there is no way even Disney could take a 1991 film, make it 3D and have it look good. Just like it has been since the technology was originally introduced in the 1950s, 3D movies are a money-making gimmick. As if paying nearly twice as much

for a new 3D movie isn’t enough, Hollywood expects people to pay nearly twice as much to watch movies that were released more than 10 years ago. Instead of paying $12, at least, to watch a movie one time in 3D in theaters, movie fans could instead buy the movie for nearly the same price and watch it again and again. However, people will undoubtedly flock to theaters, and probably even camp out, for the “new” “Star Wars” films, and Hollywood execs will watch their pockets get fatter.

It might seem fun to watch Darth Maul fight Jedis and be given the illusion of being able to reach out and grab a light saber when “The Phantom Menace” returns to theaters, but once the first three films are released and they begin to release the 1970-80’s “Star Wars” movies, the 3D effect will only ruin a classic trilogy. Part of the fun of the old “Star Wars,” and other films being rereleased in 3D, are the classic feel of the movies, which can be ruined with too much technology. Re-releasing and “improving”

His faith in God and his musical abilities really separated him from the rest of us and helped define him as a man. Shawn passed away in a car accident last week, and none of us could find the words to express how we felt about him. That’s probably partially because sentiments like these are so difficult to verbalize to begin with, but it also had a lot to do with the type of guy he was. The best traits about Shawn were not easily spoken but instead were in pictures or songs. I will forever remember him with a smile on his face, guitar in hand. Whenever we were playing video games and Shawn walked in, he’d greet us and walk right back out. He had more worthwhile things to do, like complete his daily devotional or write a new lick on his guitar. When he

did stay, he’d stay somewhat detached from the game, instead focusing more on interactions with us. This year, he was living with two of the guys from that group off campus. I went over there a few times last semester, but a few blocks is a lot farther than a couple strides down the hall. I let my life get in the way of my relationship with my friends, assuming there would always be another time to be with them. Now there’s not. Since the accident, I’ve seen an outpouring of support both for me and for his roommates. I’ve had phone conversations with all kinds of people from other parts of my life, helping me through it. I went over to Shawn’s place a few times this weekend, and there were always people over there spending time

with his roommates. When we’re together, it makes the sadness a lot easier to handle, because we tell stories about Shawn. But as soon as I’m alone with my thoughts, it becomes a lot more difficult. Fortunately, one friend said something that has stuck with me. When we were hanging out in the other room, Shawn would beat on the wall to tell us he was back from class. We’d beat back to let him know he should come over or to see if he was awake. Sometimes, it would just turn into a loud battle back and forth. Regardless of the reason for them, those beats will always be in our hearts until we get to see him again. — Michael Nowels is a sophomore elementary education major and weekly columnist for The Mirror.

Greeley, UNC honor MLK legacy during annual celebration CARMEN BRADY The Greeley Human Resources Commission and UNC recognized Martin Luther King Jr. Day Monday by co-sponsoring a march and celebration in honor of the late reverend and his dream of racial equality. The event began with a march from the Greeley Chamber of Commerce to the Union Colony Civic Center, through downtown Greeley and Lincoln Park. Once at the UCCC, community members and students gave presentations in honor of MLK. The presentations included a testimonial by Fathi Barkadle, a junior psychology major, about her experience with immigrating to the United States. Touré, an author and TV personality, spoke about how it is important to real-

ize racism exists as much today as it did during King’s lifetime and how people must keep combating it. Along with the presentations, the second annual Dream Big, Spread Hope, Inspire Others Community Award was given to Maria Sanchez, director of the University of Northern Colorado’s Realizing Our Community program, for her work helping to promote diversity and solidarity in the community. The event was attended by both UNC and Greeley community members, all of whom were there to show solidarity for King’s message. Nicholas Ceehorne, a Greeley community member, said this was his second year attending the event. He said he thinks it is important to keep recognizing what King advocated during his lifetime. “I believe in Martin

Luther King’s dream, so I’ve come here the last two years,” Ceehorne said. “People need to keep striving for what Martin Luther

King did and know that every little bit counts.” Walt Becker, a senior history major, said he was glad he could participate in

Students ring in 2012 once more at Club UNC MARION RIFFAULT Surrounded by black and white balloons and other New Year’s Eve decorations, UNC students danced around the University Center Ballrooms and sang along to some of 2011-12’s biggest hits during Club UNC Friday. Nicole Larson, the traditional events coordinator for the University Program Council, concocted the special event to close out the University of Northern Colorado’s Winter Welcome Week.

Club UNC gave students another chance to enjoy ringing in the New Year. Larson said she knows that to have a blast, some party elements must be mixed together. “When people arrive, they get 2012 Silly Band bracelets and noisemakers, and a secret surprise at the end,” she said. Larson, who spent her own New Year’s Eve in Fort Collins, said many students left Greeley to join their families for the holidays. To give students a chance to ring in the

New Year with their friends, UPC decided to host a party where students could enjoy everything New Year’s has to offer all over again. “It is a crazy idea to have two New Year’s par-

ties, but it is to celebrate this time of the year with our friends on campus,” Larson explained. Pascale Blouin, a junior exchange student, said See Club UNC, Page 7

our everyday lives. We need to realize that and keep working towards something better.” Tori Peterson, a freshman environmental studies major, said she was glad she attended. “There is no better day to support a march that promotes diversity and acceptance of all kinds,” Peterson said. “It really makes you feel like you’re a part of something.”

Former PVA acting student makes Broadway debut RYAN LAMBERT In “Sister Carrie,” Theodore Dreiser’s classic, gritty novel of a young woman’s rise to stardom, the reader encounters the tribulations of making a name on Broadway and the tough transition from ensemble work to a leading role. Much like Carrie, Dreiser’s immortal protagonist, UNC alumnus Derek Hanson, who graduated with a degree in musical theater in 2006, is navigating the complex workings of New York’s acting scene. Starting on Jan. 10, Hanson has been on Broadway as an ensemble member for “Anything Goes,” the well-known musical about romance on the SS American. He is also the

Hanson said. “They focus on all aspects of musical theater: singing, acting and dancing — the triple threat…UNC also makes its students read the masterpieces like Shaw.” Rehearsal for “Anything

Goes” began on Dec. 26. Hanson turned down the chance to work with Daniel Radcliff in “How to Succeed in Business Without Really Trying” to work on “Anything Goes,” and he has been enjoying the experience, especially working with bigname actors like Joel Grey, one of only eight actors who has won both a Tony Award and an Academy Award for playing the same part. “To be standing up on stage with them is a trip,” Hanson said. “I admire them. It’s like seeing life come full circle.” Hanson, who on average goes on 100-150 job interviews a year, cautions that the life of an actor is not a “normal” career. “There’s a lot of times when you don’t know when your next check is coming

UNC Student Radio rocks out to Colorado bands at A.F. Ray’s SARAH KIRBY Students can warm up their dancing feet and listen to rock-solid local talent during UNC Student Radio’s Rock Radio Show at A.F. Ray’s this Friday. Doors will open at 9 p.m. Ska Skank Redemption is first in the lineup and will be followed by T-shirts for Tomorrow, Bones Muhroni and The Say So. Tickets are $10 for ages 18-and-up and $5 for 21and-older. This is the first show sponsored by UNC

Student Radio in 2012, and all four bands are musically diverse in instrumentation and style. Sam Wood, a senior geography major and general manager of UNC Student Radio, said, “The UNC Student Rock Radio show at A.F. Ray’s will hopefully bring awareness about UNC Student Radio and local artists from Colorado. UNC Radio booked Bones Muhroni before they won the Battle of the Bands in December, and the rest of the artists have either played or wanted to play

for UNC Radio.” Crew Rienstra, a senior acting major and acoustic guitarist for Bones Muhroni, admitted that the band name’s name is a double entendre. A bony moroni is a rhythm-andblues chord that was played by artists like Ray Charles, and it also served as a childhood nickname for Rienstra. Just as the self-proclaimed folk-rock band’s name demonstrates double facets of meaning, Bones Muhroni’s music is multi-dimensional in sound.

Chris Jones, vocalist and guitarist for Bones Muhroni and senior acting major, described his band’s sound as “brutally honest, true and full. We put on a hell of a show. We go out there, and this is what we love to do. Our Friday night’s the night to get down, and any chance we have to do that is unbelievable. People will have a good time.” The headliner of the night, The Say So, is a Denver-based alternative band that has played together for the last three years.

“We’ve wanted to play Greeley, so it was just kinda perfect,” said bassist and keyboard player Chris Beeble. “We all have varying musical interests such as Mute Math, Thrice, Incubus, Circa Survive and The Black Keys. Obviously, we’re a unique hybrid of the things we love about other bands.” The Say So has a simple philosophy for their stage performance: They want everyone who is watching them to be aware that they, as a band, are doing what they love. Interested in pursuing

new areas of musical production, The Say So promises to unveil a light show, which they have created specifically for the Rock Radio Show. The Say So believes that music is becoming more of a multimedia entertainment. “Though we are musicians, we are also four visual people who love movies and cinema, and (the light show) is our way of combining visuals with our music,” Beeble said. Proceeds from the event will go to the bands, A.F. Ray’s staff and UNC Student Radio.

Women’s hoops starts home stretch against Griz MICHAEL NOWELS

The UNC women’s basketball team will host the University of Montana Thursday and look to start a three-game home stand with a victory. The University of Northern Colorado has developed a bit of a rivalry with the Grizzlies (10-7, 3-1 Big Sky) in both men’s and women’s basketball, so UNC’s squad is particularly interested in winning this bear fight. The team nicknames are not the only things that are similar about these two teams. Each team lost to Denver in non-conference play, and both teams have beaten Northern Arizona

and Eastern Washington and fallen at the hands of Idaho State in the early going of Big Sky Conference play. The Bears (11-7, 3-2) got a big game last time from sophomore forward Kim Lockridge in their win over EWU. Lockridge poured in 24 points on just 13 shot attempts, and she said she thinks her game is improving as the team gets further into the season. “It’s a lot of my teammates getting me the ball more often, just looking for me, and I’m actually making my shots now,” Lockridge said. Junior forward Lauren Oosdyke said she thinks high-low action has been a part of the formula for

UNC’s success and can be used against Montana. “Making the high-low happen is huge, and it really shrinks their defense more into the center of the paint, so high-low is going to be a huge game against Montana, for sure,” Oosdyke said. Bears sophomore guard D’shara Strange said she thinks her team will need to be successful on the perimeter to open up Montana’s 2-3 zone and make it vulnerable to post play. “We’ve been a little timid with (Montana’s) zone, so we need to practice on our 3-point shots because once we start hitting those, they’re going to come out of it,” Strange

said. “Then, when that happens, we can start attacking the basket and the paint with our post players.” Strange leads the team in scoring at 18.5 points per game and in rebounding at 10 per contest. Grizzlies junior forward Katie Baker earned Big Sky Player of the Week honors last week, averaging 18 points and 10 rebounds in victories over Northern Arizona and Weber State. The Bears will need to expose Montana’s poor shooting (36.5 percent from the field and 23.9 percent from 3-point range) as well as be wary of the defensive prowess of the Grizzlies, who average 10.5 steals and 5.8 blocks per game.


UNC sophomore Molly Duehn, left, drives around a Sacramento State defender Jan. 7 at Butler-Hancock Sports Pavilion. Duehn averages 3.5 points per game this year. Oosdyke said the bottom line is that UNC must take advantage of home court in the conference, as road wins are tough to come by. Lockridge said the same in

fewer words. “Home losses just put you behind,” she said. Thursday’s game tips off at 7:05 p.m. at ButlerHancock Sports Pavilion.

Men’s basketball heads to Montana, Montana State GRANT EVANS

After a short home stand, the UNC men’s basketball team will travel north to take on Montana

UNC redshirt freshman guard Tevin Svihovec, left, makes a move against Eastern Washington Saturday at Butler-Hancock Sports Pavilion. Svihovec had 12 points in the 71-70 victory.

State University (8-8, 3-2) is tied for third. Last year, the University of Northern Colorado (6-10, 3-2) beat Montana in the Big Sky C o n f e r e n c e Championship to advance to the NCAA Tournament for the first time in school history. Junior guard Elliott Lloyd said the team is looking forward to the contest against Montana, a school the team has developed a bit of a rivalry with. “They are a hard-competing team, and we are trying to compete as hard as them,” Lloyd said. “If we focus and execute, we

Saturday for sure, but gosh, I want to play Montana.” The Bears are scheduled to take on Montana at 7 p.m. Thursday in Missoula, Mont., and Montana State at 7:05 p.m. Saturday in Bozeman, Mont. With wins over both opponents the Bears could move as high as second place in the Big Sky Conference.

Barnes, who works for the Sounds of the Rockies, warmed the dancers up with “Last Friday Night” by Katy Perry “because it is Friday night after all,” Barnes said while laughing. If Barnes had to pick

only one song to party with, he said he would undoubtedly choose “Party Rock Anthem” by LMFAO. David Hanson, a freshman whose favorite song was “Party Rock Anthem,” stayed until the party ended at midnight. “The DJs were great,” Hanson said. Barnes shared his secret on how to turn any New Year’s party into a good time. “The song to listen for at the next New Years’ party will definitely be ‘I’m Sexy and I Know It’ by LMFAO,” he said. Hanson stayed until the secret surprise was revealed. Just before midnight, Lady Gaga appeared in the UNC Ballroom. Well, on a screen in the UNC Ballroom. “We wanted to

feel as if we were in Times Square with the ball drop and Lady Gaga,” Larson said. “It is not her in per-

son, but at least it’s free.” The New Year’s-themed event is the fourth Club UNC hosted by UPC.

The UNC wrestling team split the 10 bouts with Cal. StateBakersfield Sunday, but the Roadrunners recorded one fall for the twopoint differential in their 19-17 win in Bakersfield, Calif. University of Northern Colorado senior Casey Cruz, wrestling at 141 pounds, got the Bears on the board with his 10th win of the season after CSU Bakersfield won the first two bouts. Cruz is now 10-4 this season and 40 in dual action. UNC sophomore Justin Gonzalez followed with a 5-1 decision before sophomore Charlie McMartin lost a highly contested 9-7 decision to Roadrunners senior

Anthony Box at 157 pounds. The pair was tied at 7 after seven minutes of wrestling before Box was awarded two points for a takedown with 38 seconds left in the first overtime. Senior transfer Gabe Burak won a 7-0 decision over CSUB freshman Adam Fierro for his fourth consecutive victory. Burak, who is ranked No. 12 in the nation by Intermat Wrestling at 165 pounds, is now 11-1 this season with his only loss coming to a top-five ranked wrestler. The Bears also got wins from freshman Henry Chirino at 285 pounds and junior Patrick Gomez at 184 pounds. UNC returns to the mat at 8 p.m. Friday against No. 21-ranked Oregon State in Corvallis, Ore.
