Mainstream media neglects stories of happiness, inspiration Every issue, one of the editors from The Mirror is required to reflect on something happening in the world. Reflection isn’t complicated when there is recent and interesting news to discuss and disseminate. While virtually sifting through dozens of articles on the web, this time was different. Or maybe it wasn’t different and enlightenment was found in the apparent hidden sting of current event reports. Before today it was easy to ignore the almost complete neg-

entertainment sections of newspapers or hidden in the weekend guides and fine prints. Even in the entertainment sections, major news corporations are likely not thinking of laughter, amusement or enjoyment when they list “entertainment” as a subcategory. What they really mean is “people in entertainment”—celebrity gossip. Arts, music and movie reviews are most often even more deeply embedded in the maps of these websites via subsections of subsections, which are often enti-

tled arts and culture. The sad thing is that cheerfulness is no longer mainstream. While serious news is vital to worldly issues, the regression of news has pushed what we should be grateful for deep into a rabbit hole. The United States has become too wrapped up in sadistic violence, idiot criminals and name-brand celebrities and has failed to give due respect to the lights of life. America might agree that news reports could do well with a lot more pie and a little less brussel sprouts.

The realization suddenly was prominent after each website visited was bustling with articles designed to anger or depress their audience.

known among fraternities and sororities that, as slim as the number of potential members may be, spring recruitment is crunch-time. The frenzy of events, tours, and interviews, although effective, seldom rivals the excitement and anticipation of UNC’s fall rush. Whether the fall brings about better weather, or perhaps a more enthusiastic campus, the spring semester continues to maintain an underestimated advantage. The typical fall freshman recruit may have a preconceived view of what Greek Life is all about, and most are excited to join a cause greater than themselves. The decision to rush can include the chance to make new friends and perhaps bask in the more vibrant social events. However, for some newcomers, the pressure to

impress your favorite house and the sheer volume of campus events can be overwhelming enough to reserve your involvement for a later time (this was the case for me.) Fast-forward to January, where interest in rushing may have taken a dive, but the few who remain had ample time to explore other areas of involvement, focus on classes, and discover their adult selves. Such credentials make young men and women extremely sought-after, and though hard to come by, make for well-prepared members of Greek Life or otherwise. Whether you are an incoming freshman or an experienced upperclassman, realize that the spring recruitment season may be the time for you to give Greek Life a chance. The slower-paced environment

and the intimacy of the spring process may prove to contrast any assumptions Greek Life expressed to you during fall. So if you have never considered joining a Greek organization, or if the thought of John Belushi in a toga makes you cringe, I understand, but I insist that you take my word for it when I say Greek Life has changed my life for the better, and has made me a more successful student and a more involved member of this community. If you decide to rush, I cannot guarantee you the same, however, I know that everyone deserves a chance to explore the idea of becoming part of an organization at this university. — Benjamin Fuller is a junior economics major and weekly columnist for The Mirror.

Student Senate Update

Representatives discuss university, Senate improvements CARMEN BRADY During this week’s UNC Student Senate meeting, Senate members discussed a variety of issues brought to the Senate’s attention by students as well as possible changes to the functioning of Senate. Between Student Senate’s meetings last week and this week, Senate members were asked by Tyler Ames, the director of Finance, and Katelyn Elliott, the student body president at the University of Northern Colorado, to ask students around campus what they thought the most prominent issues with the university were. The Senate members collected a wide range of problems students felt need-

ed to be addressed, with more than 40 individual complaints. There was variation in the complaints, as well as some overlap, with issues including Academic Advising, Dining Services, Parking Services and school spirit. Members of Senate discussed the issues students brought up to them in the meeting, though no finalized list was made. Ames requested that each member look over what had been brought up and choose six of the issues they felt were most important, and bring them to the next meeting. From there, Ames said he plans to make a final list of the six most important issues and conduct a school-wide survey to see which of those six issues students would most like

to see addressed. Ames said he is pushing this survey because he feels there are many issues students would like to see addressed, and Senate is the only body on campus capable of doing so. “The biggest problem that we have right now is that although Student Senate is meeting its requirements, we aren’t actually going out and finding issues that students have to make sure that those issues are met,” Ames said. “So the reason why I have a huge push and I’m really passionate about it is there are a lot of issues that over the past five years I’ve been here that still haven’t been met, and that will continue to not be met … the reason why I’m doing it now is because it has to get done at some point.” Both Ames and Elliott

said last meeting they were planning on discussing a restructuring of Senate this semester, which was discussed this session. Elliot said members had expressed eliminating or combining some of the more superfluous positions on Senate to have a smaller cabinet. Though this was met by general consent by the whole of the Senate, members had separate ideas of how to go about restructuring Senate. Though it was discussed for a while and different ideas were expressed, it was ultimately decided that a separate committee was needed to finalize and formalize the ideas, which will be discussed next session. Levi Fuller, the director of Student Affairs, said he thinks a restructure and downsize of Senate is neces-

sary because job responsibilities are spread unevenly across the cabinet, and he thinks Senate itself does not function as well as it might because of that. “I think if we were to restructure and make it smaller and create more jobs for different schools, then it would be much more productive,” Fuller said. “We could form focused committees instead of trying to get everything done in Student Senate meetings.” William Schiffelbein, the elections commissioner for this spring’s election, presented his timeline for the election to be approved by Senate. Though no one had any objections to the timeline itself, the timeline did not pass because of concerns Senate members had about the restructuring. Schiffelbein will pres-

ent a timeline next session for approval. Charlie Charbonneau, director of Student Organizations, introduced for approval a new Organization Funding Board member. One of the previous members could no longer make it to meetings, and needed to be replaced. The proposed member was Krystal Duff, a senior communication studies major. The proposal passed unanimously. Lauren Zdanowitz, the Student Trustee, said she attended the Board of Trustees meeting last week, where next fiscal year’s tuition increase was discussed. “The goal was to only raise tuition for in-state students nine percent,” Zdanowitz said. “But this is not finalized yet.”

UNC, Mineral Resources, Inc. dig deep for oil, natural gas BRIT DUNN

The Board of Trustees ended their final meeting last semester with a unanimous vote allowing Mineral Resources, Inc. to begin drilling for natural gas and oil on UNC property. The University of Northern Colorado will receive at least $123,110 under the drilling contract and 16 percent in royalties for any gas and oil found on campus property. Kay Norton, the presi-

dent of UNC, said the agreement allows Mineral Resources, Inc. to utilize 246 acres of campus property for horizontal drilling. Surface activity will be minimal, as drilling occurs 7,000 feet below ground and deeper, which will affect no aquifers or any campus activity. Drilling locations will be between 3rd and 4th Avenue and 17th Street. The drilling will be far enough from any campus activity that UNC students should not be

affected, which increased some students’ support of the project. “As long as it doesn’t affect our studious atmosphere and provides money for the school then I’m all for it,” said James Church, a freshman marketing and accounting major. Each horizontal oil well contains approximately 20,000 quarts of oil and 500,000 MCF of natural gas. One MCF is equal to 1,000 cubic feet of natural gas. “With relatively new

horizontal oil wells, we will be able to obtain more oil,” said Logan Richardson, land manager of Mineral Resources, Inc. “We hope to see more production from this process.” Richardson said horizontal wells take about two to three weeks to fill up while vertical wells take about a week. Plans are still being made for when the drilling will happen but construction will continue at each of these sites

while the city prepares for this resource production. Mineral Resources Inc. explained they also have 10 current sites in Weld County, including some

west and south of Greeley. For more information on the drilling process and updates on the project, visit

Friends remember ‘light’ Yoho brought to UNC KRISTEN MARTIN Students and friends of UNC student Shawn Yoho gathered around a single yellow candle in his memory Thursday on the lawn near Lawrenson Hall. Yoho, a sophomore communication studies major, died from injuries sustained in a car accident in Utah Jan. 12. Childhood friends of Yoho, Eric Bloom, a junior communication studies major at the University of Northern Colorado, and Jesse Christy led the candlelight vigil. “Shawn was a light to my world and I bet that he was a light to all yours,” Christy said. “Shawn made me smile no matter what. That’s what I remember most about him.” Matt Estrin, a worship minister at Journey Christian Church, met Yoho at Chipotle the Thursday before the accident and had asked him about a sociology class he was in. “The professor made a blanket statement that if you’re a religious person, you’re gonna hate this class and said ‘I’m pretty much gonna slam your faith,’” Estrin said. He asked Yoho how he felt about it, to which he quoted James 1:2-4 from the Bible, a passage that addresses perservering faith even under scrutiny. “I can’t wait to get my faith tested,’ he said. That’s the last memory I’ll have of Shawn and that’s a great memory,” Estrin said. Kyle Hope, one of Yoho’s

bandmates, was in the car with Yoho when the accident occurred and shared his best memories of him during the vigil. “It’s a recurring theme how he makes friends because he was kind of a creeper sometimes and the way I met him is kind of a God thing,” Hope said. “Senior year of high school, we were at two separate schools and at two separate churches and he somehow found out that I was a worship leader and that I was good at guitar. He somehow got my number, I don’t know how, and he just started texting me.” Hope said Yoho asked him if he wanted to be in his band. After listening to his music, Hope told Yoho he was not into his punk style of music, but they decided to give it a chance anyway. “Later on we actually met at the same church, and it was kind of awkward, but we found out we were both going to UNC and that we were gonna be in the same dorm,” Hope said. “It was kind of like, ‘Oh, God has a purpose for this.’” They eventually got their band together and were continually writing songs and playing their guitars. “He was so talented, he could harmonize with anything,” he said. “It was amazing. I’ll definitely remember that. I don’t know if I’ll find that again. God put us together and he opened this door to go to California, it was our first big gig and we were really excited to go.” On the day of the accident, he said, they stopped at a scenic point in Utah.

“I went out on this ledge and looked out at all of the sky and the hills, it was just beautiful,” he said. “I went over to the edge by myself and closed my eyes and felt the wind and felt God and a couple seconds later I felt Shawn touch me. We just talked about it together for a second. It was beautiful. I felt like it was kind of a goodbye. It was a God thing, just to be with each other for a second, just me and him.” Hope said it was Yoho’s dream to go on tour and spread his faith. “He just wanted to reach out,” he said. “That just shows his heart and how much love he had for everybody. That’s why there are a million people affected by this. Gosh, I’m gonna miss him so much. I know he’s with Jesus.” Hope said they often described the music they created as heavenly. “We were writing a song for this camp and he made a guitar line with his new pedal board and we’d always say, ‘Man, that sounds so heavenly,’” he said. “I just know he knows what that really means now. He was a God-sent friend and I loved him. I’ll miss Shawn. He had a beautiful heart.” Bloom said he loved hearing all of the stories and told the crowd that most of his memories involved adventures with Yoho. “Most of my memories with Shawn are of laughing at one of our own expenses,” Bloom said. “We were playing dodgeball and (I) was wearing glasses. Shawn has a rocket for an arm and he hits me in the corner of my glass-

es and shatters them. Shawn just comes over with this goofy smile and says, ‘Oh man, I’m so sorry,’ and I was just like, ‘I wish you had glasses right now.’” He said his favorite memory of Yoho was at a mutual friend’s brother’s wedding and they decided to go fourwheeling in the groom’s Nissan Altima before the rehearsal dinner. “We’re up in Conifer and we decide to find some areas that have some sweet turns we’re gonna go around,” he said. “We were going around this corner drift and on the left side is a 10-foot ditch and to the right was a mountain. Shawn didn’t realize that you have to avoid the ditch, so he drifts around it and half the car is hanging in the ditch and half is hanging on the dirt. We’re all laughing and Taylor and I had to walk three miles to finally find a firefighter. We come back and Shawn and Joe are just tossin’ a baseball.” Bloom also shared a time when he and Yoho shared a cabin for two weeks at camp. Bloom and the other cabinmates were always woken up at 6 a.m. by Yoho’s ringtone of “Gone” by Toby Mac. “At 6 o’clock his Toby Mac ringtone would go off and wake up everyone,” he said. “I’ve been realizing over this past week, there’s that line in his ringtone, ‘You never know what you got till it’s gone.’ When I think of Shawn over the last week, as I’ve been processing through all the emotions and the heartache, I never really, really realized the friend I had in Shawn until now. He was one of the most genuine


Students and friends gather to remember and reminisce about time spent with Shawn Yoho at a candlelight vigil Thursday outside of Lawrenson Hall. guys I’ve ever met.” Jarrett Durant, a sophomore journalism major, lived with Yoho this past semester and copes with the loss by telling stories involving Yoho. “Living with him, we just kind of forged this really tight-knit family,” Durant said. “We spent our entire days with that kid. We have stories that never ever run out. That’s how we’ve been dealing with this whole thing is just going through all those funny stories and we have too many…It’s been crazy getting to know him the way we have.” There was a march through the 11th Avenue tunnel so attendees could see Yoho’s signed handprint on the wall. The vigil concluded at the University Center. “The reason why we stopped here at the UC and ending it here is because it is

the last spot Shawn was at on this university before he passed away,” Christy said. “He was here playing music for the talent show put on by UNC. He was here worshipping and showing God to people who didn’t know Him. He went out doing the thing he loved, and that’s one of the biggest things. He was on his way to worship God, and that’s what Shawn did, he worshipped God.”

Memorial Service The funeral for Shawn Yoho is at 11 a.m. Saturday at Calvary Chapel, 18900 E. Hampden Ave. in Aurora. The service will be streamed online at

Women’s basketball takes down Grizzlies at home Senior forward sets career 3-point record, head coach celebrates birthday in victory SAMANTHA FOX

With Montana welcoming the UNC women’s basketball team home Thursday, expectations over the rivalry game were high, but the

Bears came away with the 59-42 win at ButlerHancock Sports Pavilion. Montana’s (10-8, 3-2 Big Sky) defense forced the University of Northern Colorado (12-7, 4-2) to turn the ball over 10 times in the first half. The trouble for Montana was sinking the ball


UNC senior forward Kaisha Brown calls out a play in the team’s game against Montana Thursday. Brown broke the career 3-point record in the game and scored 13 points.

into the net — a problem UNC senior forward Kaisha Brown was not having. Brown was the secondleading scorer for the Bears with 13 points, nine of which came off 3pointers, the last of which passed former Bear and teammate, Courtney Stoermer, for 3-pointers made in a career, totaling 178. Brown’s first two 3pointers in the game were back-to-back at the beginning of the first half. Brown said it was an honor to break a former teammate’s record. “That wasn’t her main game,” Brown said. “She has all those steal records, and so it’s just what we always did. She has all those assists and most of my threes are from assists from Courtney, so it’s cool to break someone’s record who you’ve played with.” The Bears went into

halftime with a 28-16 lead, and started the second half just as strong as the first, eventually building a 23point lead. UNC junior forward Lauren Oosdyke had a game-high 20 points, which Oosdyke said was important because of the struggles she has had against Montana. “Montana’s defense has always been tough for me to play against personally, and I think as a team we’ve struggled before,” Oosdyke said. “I just tried to find the gaps when I was open on offense and tried to drive to the bucket more and tried to get fouls.” UNC sophomore guard D’shara Strange had a career-high 15 rebounds, good for one third of the Bears’ 45 total rebounds. “I felt like we were solid defensively all night,” UNC

head coach Jaime White said. “There were a couple misreads, but for the most part, I felt we were pretty solid.” Montana is the first of three opponents in the row the Bears are hosting, with Montana State visiting Saturday. “I think this gave us a lot of confidence, beating Montana,” Oosdyke said. “Beating Montana’s always great, it’s a big rivalry. It’s going to give us a lot of confidence, and

Birthdays have been good for me. I don’t want one on every home game, but once a year’s not bad.

we know we can beat anyone in this conference. We just have to come out to play every single night.” The team’s blowout was a great way to celebrate White’s birthday. The last time the Bears played on White’s birthday was during the 2007-08 season, when the Bears defeated Portland State, 61-56, at home. “Birthdays have been good for me,” White said. “I don’t want to have one on every home game, but once a year’s not bad. It’s been fun. The girls are awesome and we kind of joke around about birthdays, but the kids are good kids, they’ve been working hard and we just hope every game’s like this one.” The Bears are back in action against Montana State (12-6, 4-2) at 2:05 p.m. Saturday at ButlerHancock Sports Pavilion.

Men’s hoops drops first leg of Montana roadtrip STAFF REPORT

The UNC men’s basketball team allowed four Montana players to score in double-digits Thursday, and turnovers added to the trouble as the University of Northern Colorado came away with a 76-58 loss in Missoula, Mont. Montana (12-6, 5-1 Big Sky) junior guard Will Cherry dropped 27 points

on UNC (6-11, 3-3), and senior forward Derek Selvig, junior forward Mathias Ward and sophomore guard Kareem Jamar all had 11 points each. The Bears got off to a hot start in the game, opening an 11-point lead following a 3-pointer from sophomore guard Paul Garnica with 10:49 remaining in the first half.

needs fine-tuning heading into the bulk of the season. “Each week that we’ve had, I’ve been slowly perfecting some of the things I need to work on,” said senior Casey Cruz, who is 10-4 at 141 pounds. “Now that it’s the turning point towards nationals, I’m rediscovering some of the weaknesses I have in certain situations and kind of tweaking them. We have the potential to be one of the top teams right now after I’ve seen where we have been.” The team has high expectations and looks to surprise the competition. Not all of the Bears are floating under the radar, though.

Senior Gabe Burak is ranked 13th in the 165 weight class according to Intermat. “We are building every day, getting better and seeking to improve,” Burak said. “The ultimate goal is to win a national title. I think after last week, we will be focused and ready to fight for seven minutes if we want to win.” The Bears all have high aspirations and know that rankings do not mean anything until nationals. Members of the team said they are confident that if each wrestler takes care of his match, the dual will take care of itself. “The pressure is always on a team like that when they are wrestling a team like us,” Cherrington said.
