Project seeks volunteers to help save ghost town TESSA BYRNS The Dearfield Dream Oral History Project is seeking volunteers to help preserve the memories of a forgotten ghost town 12 miles east of Greeley on US-34. It focuses on how a small town near Greeley helped blacks during a tough time in history. The project is run by non-profit organization that seeks to preserve the black historic town of Dearfield in Weld County. It takes a look at black entrepreneurship in the town and the black community before the Great Depression.

“The Dearfield Dream include Colorado State Oral History Project is University; the City of looking for volunteers Greeley; the Center for Honors, Scholars from all over and Leadership; because there and the Black are so many American West cassettes that Museum. need to be digi“Paul Stewart, tized,” said the founder of the Shanice Clarke, Black American a Dearfield West Museum, Dream Oral Robert Brunswig found the tapes Project coordi- said the process of and has discovnator. “We getting cassettes ered that most of need help fig- digital will continue the stories from uring out which for two years.

no prerequisites for being a volunteer. The advice he gives to incoming volunteers is to be patient. Even though the work

may be tedious, all of the volunteers will learn a lot about the history of black culture . “Everyone involved is thinking that the whole process of getting the cassettes to be completely digitized and online will continue on for at least two to three more years,” said Robert Brunswig, a University of Northern Colorado professor of anthropology and director of the University Center for Engaged Research and Civic Action. The Dearfield Project began Feb. 18 and is receiving help from George June, a UNC

Africana studies professor, and the Black American West Museum, which wants to not only preserve culture but also research even further. The research is set to continue for five more years thanks to the community and student volunteers, Brunswig said. “What the volunteers and everyone else involved want to accomplish with the Dearfield Dream Oral History Project is trying to preserve and save it for the present and the future generations so mysteries of Dearfield can be explained,” Brunswig said.

HSL leads Earth Day efforts SARAH MOE With Earth Day fast approaching, students and faculty are joining forces to increase campus awareness about the importance of preserving the environment. The Earth Week Committee met Monday to discuss plans for the celebrations of the week sur-

Early-season baseball results are no reason to panic One of the best seasons is upon us. The grass is turning green again, the semester is winding down and baseball season is finally back. At the Colorado Rockies’ home opener, the excitement was felt throughout the stands — well, until the third inning when Jhoulys Chacin gave up his fourth run of the game. The setting didn’t have nearly the same feel after that. Following the game, comments from fans and the media have been nothing but negative against the players and management. However, four

the AL East. This won’t last. Ask any true fan of the Yankees, and he or she will gladly bring up the fact that the 27-time World Series Champions won the 1998 Fall Classic after starting the season 0-3. For teams like the Rockies, fans should be able to recognize this year as a rebuilding season, especially with only four returning starters taking the field during the first inning Friday in the season opener at the Houston Astros. With all the changes, struggles during the first weeks of the season are expected.

As a fan in Coors Field on Opening Day, it hurts to watch your team lose a 7-0 shutout to a pitcher who hasn’t thrown one since 2003. But, this can’t be a reflection on what the team will look like come July. Patience is a virtue. Baseball fans, be patient because the season will turn out differently than the current standings. If your team is one that is scrapping the barrel, don’t fret. If the standings are the same come August, that is when you will need to make your rally cap a full-time wardrobe addition.

games into the season isn’t the time to point fingers. It is going to be a long and painful season if the current standings are a reflection of the rest of the year. What’s the biggest indicator there is no way the current MLB standings reflect the end of the season standing? Look in the NL East. The Mets sit atop the division. Among teams such as the Phillies and the Braves, third is the highest the Mets should ever be in the division. The Yankees and Red Sox are occupying the bottom of

With final exams quickly approaching, professors rush to fit the remainder of a course’s content into what’s left of the semester. That means a pretty stressful end of the semester for both instructors and students. Equally important to completing the coursework, though, is ridding oneself of the stresses that are bound to tag along with the workload. Everybody blows off steam in his or her own way. Some are able to use the stress as fuel to power through homework, and that in itself is a good release. Many times, just knowing that a long-dreaded paper is behind me can be quite a boost. More often, though, I need something outside school to use as an outlet, and the spring weather is a great help in opening up more of those possibili-

ties. A round of disc golf on the campus links is a nice way to spend a sunny afternoon and take my mind away from the work to which I must return eventually. Stress is bound to be rampant in these days of our production-based society, even in schools. The important thing to bear in mind is that classes are not a matter of life or death. There is always another chance to redeem a mistake, whether it is this semester or later. I know I have been experiencing abnormal amounts of stress, by my standards, so I planned to do something about it this week. I found some small bowls and purchased them with the intent of breaking them (fret not, they were only a dollar apiece). I did the deed with some good friends,

expecting that I would feel a burden lifted. But instead, it stayed. Later that evening, I sat alone outside, writing out whatever came to my mind and drinking in the sounds of the town. That experience proved to be much more relieving, surprisingly. As the semester tailspins down and the projects pile up, remember that stress relief can come in many forms. Go work out, or grab a book. Rock the drums, or listen to a new album. Break some bowls, or write a poem. But whatever you do, don’t pull your hair out over a class you can always take again. — Michael Nowels is a sophomore elementary education major and weekly columnist for The Mirror.

CEBS convocation awards students’ efforts STEPHANIE RICH The College of Education and Behavioral Sciences honored students and presented them with a speech from a recognized UNC alumna Tuesday in the University Center Ballrooms. Tuesday was the 6th Annual Honors Convocation in which 51 students were recognized for their work in academics, research and committees. The 51 students are in the top 1.3 percent of their classes at both the undergraduate and graduate levels. They were hand-selected by their professors to receive the honors titles. The convocation began with Eugene Sheehan, the dean of

CEBS, giving a small speech to welcome everyone, introduce faculty and speak briefly about the college’s achievements. The guest speaker for the evening was Ellen Wagner, who taught Educational Technology at UNC from 1983 to 1994. “Trying is essential, but ‘doing’ is what makes a person,” Wagner said. During her speech, she gave the audience insight into her endeavors before and after working at UNC. She explained how she followed her dream all over the world from Colorado to Switzerland and has now settled down with a job as a senior analyst. “Dean Sheehan wanted someone that has gone outside what is considered the normal path after professors stop

speak Tuesday. Sheehan said Wagner’s most profound piece of advice for students was to avoid getting locked into a specific career path. She noted that for over half the students there, their third professional job hasn’t even been invented yet. Once both Sheehan and Wagner were finished speaking, faculty members were called up to present the awards for their respective disci-

plines. Each faculty member took the time to say a few words about the honorees so the audience could gain a brief understanding of why they were chosen to receive such a prestigious award. The passion and care that was put behind every professor’s words was enough to make any audience member want to congratulate the honorees for what they’ve done as well as inquire further. “I feel fabulous,” said Karlee Provenza, a senior psychology major. “I’ve had a great team of professors, and without them, I wouldn’t have found this passion.” The event concluded with an Italian aria singing the song “Almost There” from “The Princess and the Frog” performed by Stephanie Brickles, an undergraduate special education and music education major who hopes to be teaching music at the elementary level by 2013.

Journalism and mass communication students have just put the finishing touches on a self-directed documentary, and it is set to tackle the concept of the “American dream.” At 7 p.m. Monday, April 23, at Lindou Auditorium in Michener Library, countless

hours of work will finally be revealed to UNC faculty, students and the Greeley community. The premier is free for all attendees. The documentary is titled “America’s Daydream” and will challenge the surrounding elements of the modernday American dream. It will feature several interviews and firsthand accounts of the many struggles that follow

when people risk it all to achieve their ideas of the American dream. The interviews range from students, professionals and random American citizens. It will more specifically evaluate the role race, gender, socioeconomic status and the current economic downturn affect individuals’ chances of reaching their goals. “The American dream has

changed drastically through the past decades; we want to know if people still believe it exists and if it is even achievable,” said Alejandro Sanabria, the student director of the documentary. Professor Gary Swanson, the students’ faculty advisor and an Emmy award winner, lended a hand to the making of the documentary.

Student creates new social media site DANNY GROSS With the amount of work and studying UNC students have to do, it can be hard for them to stay connected with what is going on outside their normal routines. Thanks to a new social networking site dedicated to University of Northern Colorado students, though, knowing what’s happening on campus and around the community can be a lot easier. Peleg Rosenthal, a junior business administration major, founded the new social media website Strictly Platonic. “As a student at UNC, I felt at times that Greeley and the campus area didn’t have a lot to offer despite the large student body,” Rosenthal said. “I decided to get out of my shell, try to meet new people and explore Greeley and UNC under a different light. To my amusement, I found out that UNC has a lot to offer. I wanted every student at UNC to know that.” Strictly Platonic is an activity-based social networking site that allows students to meet new people on campus based on common interests or desired activities. Using their BearMail addresses, students can log on and find out what is happening near them as well as create activities of their own, such as one-on-one or group meetings with other students. “For underclassmen, Strictly Platonic will offer a

great platform to get involved with the student body and the area, meet students outside of class and get to know Greeley,” Rosenthal said. “Upperclassmen can use it to meet students for professional purposes, go over a resume, provide work advice or even review a final paper together. They can also use Strictly Platonic to recommend places in Greeley to freshmen and sophomores because everyone should know about The Kitchen.” The site is also user-generated. After a user opens a profile and populates it with interests and some basic information about themselves, the site will match that user with other students

For underclassman, Strictly Platonic will offer a great platform to get involved with the student body and the area, meet students outside of class and get to know Greeley.

— Peleg Rosenthal, a junior business administration major and creator of Strictly Platonic with similar interests. The site also recommends events in Greeley and at UNC. “Coming from out-of-

state to a new area can be a bit overwhelming,” said Patti Mokry, a junior philosophy and environmental studies major. “You don’t know anyone or know what there is to do. This site is a great idea in that it pushes students to go out, explore and interact with people face-to-face.” At this time, students can post any event or activity on the site as long as it doesn’t violate the terms of use. “I’m really excited to see what will happen,” Rosenthal said. “Hopefully, with the help of Strictly Platonic, I will remove those barriers involved with meeting people and make students’ lives a little more fun.”

Various one-acts performed in Norton Theatre PVA students get practice in directing actors for class credit SPENCER DUNCAN At the beginning of the semester, seven students enrolled in THEA 440: Directing the One-Act play, which is taught by J. David Blatt, a theatre arts professor. On Sunday, their labor will be displayed. The seven one-acts, featuring students from the university are set to take stage at 1 p.m. in Gray Hall’s Norton Theatre. Performances will be free for attendees. While being mentored by Blatt, the class experienced everything that a director would go through while creating a one-act production. The process started by selecting a play, holding auditions,

conducting call-backs, casting and rehersal. “It’s a really good first experience being on stage at UNC,” said Tyler Richmeier, a sophomore acting major. “Everyone on stage takes it seriously. The best part has been the entire rehearsal process. We have kept asking ourselves questions and pushing ourselves forward as a cast.” Richmeier will be performing in the opening play, “Dentity Crisis,” Christopher Durang’s drama about the aftermath of a woman’s nervous breakdown and her recovery with a mother who claims to have invented cheese.

their importance to a successful business meeting or luncheon. “One thing I’ve learned is that first impressions and how to present yourself matter,” said Samantha Brescia, a senior journalism major and president of SPRN. “For example, smiling is key to showing that you are approachable and that you are excited to be wherever you are. The skills one learns at an etiquette dinner make you more marketable as a person, more engaged and more apt to have employers want to hire you and work with you.” Multiple plates, unbelievable amounts of uten-

sils and different styles of eating can quickly cause the most poised individual to question what his or her first move should be. Manners are generally determined by an individual at the head of the table, which can be an unsaid code. There are multiple rules in etiquette. For instance, in European etiquette, an individual should keep the tine of his or her fork facing down on the plate while cutting meat. Both of these are small details, but as Mason will demonstrate, they all add up to make an impression. “In my old sorority, we

had to use proper etiquette during our weekly meetings and dinners together,” said Sasha Pooridgemen, a sophomore history major. “I thought it was a stuffy tradition at first, but knowing how and when to pass the rolls makes an oddly relevant difference in how people view your manners, which are a reflection of you in general not only as a potential employee but also a person.” SPRN is taking 45 students, and there are some spots left. Anyone majoring in business, public relations, communications or any other professional avenue that deals

with networking is encouraged to attend the event. “I’ve learned that the importance of networking is critical in today’s job market search,” said Kyra Stroble, a junior communication studies major. “If I can build a better relationship with someone based on my interaction with them — which would include proper manners — then I would hate for something so simple to get in the way of my professional success.”

Tickets for the etiquette dinner can be purchased from the JMC office. The deadline is today.

Contemporary Dance performed in Langworthy Theatre ASHLEY REITZ

This weekend, the School of Theatre Arts and Dance presented “A Celebration of Dance in its Many Forms” in Langworthy Theatre in Frasier Hall. On Thursday’s opening night, about 150 students and Greeley community members came to show their support of the program. With a total of four pieces, dancers presented various styles of dance from four different choreographers. The choreographers consisted of UNC instructors including Monte Black, a professor of dance, and Christy

O’Connell-Black, an adjunct ballet instructor. David Marchant, a professor of dance at Washington University, and Jacob Mora, artistic director of Moraporvida Contemporary Dance in Denver, served as guest artists. Instructors had an opportunity to display their choreography skills and art in their individual pieces. “Each dance has such diversity,” Monte said. Each dance had its own sense of modern style, which is a style that emerged as an expression of rebellion against classical ballet. Modern dancing is all about expressing inner

feelings through movement. Although each portrayed modern choreography, each had its own flavor that corresponded greatly with the choreographer. The opening act, called “Mass Chaos” and choreographed by Christy, presented modern movements with overtones of classical ballet in the advancement of movement. The piece was eyecatching; each dancer wore a white outfit. The set consisted of a royal blue light in the background and various bars on the stage from which dancers could flip and swing. “The lead dancers really complimented each

other in their acrobatics and tumbling,” said Emily Lorenzi, a senior education major. “I loved the entertaining elements of the piece.” The second piece, “ B e l l a d o n n a Divertimento,” was choreographed by Marchant. “Belladonna” means “beautiful woman” in Italian, and “divertimento” refers to a sort of amusement. Seven female dancers took the stage in loose green dresses with one male performer, Francis Corby. The third piece, “Beneath the Surface,” had a variety of music choreographed by Mora. Modern style was pres-

ent in the choreography with aspects of jazz, contemporary and hip-hop. The large ensemble of dancers wore dark, grungy outfits. Each change of light corresponded with a different style and mood of dancing, including an entirely black background with dark modern movements. The performance was extremely powerful with explosions in the music and strong partner work. “It was a great learning experience learning from Jacob Mora,” said Chelsea Campanelli, a junior education major and dance minor. “I was honored to be a part of his piece because he has such an authentic style.”

The entire second act was filled with Black’s piece, “Punks: A Love Story,” with a variety of music by The Airborne Toxic Event. The dancing went through short stories comprising into one about the classic love story of boy loses girl, boy misses girl, boy finds new girl. The ensemble of 21 dancers wore punk-rockinspired outfits with neoncolored hair and bright prints. The piece was filled with high-energy movement with a humorous outlook. “Monte’s dance brings you back to the beginning flirty stage of a relationship that everyone can relate to,” Lorenzi said.
