Jillian Gonzalez Contributor FAU’s Pine Jog Environmental Education Center is meant for kids, adults and FAU students, but according to Glenn Thomas, assistant dean at Pine Jog, most students don’t even know it exists. “I think it’s the best-kept secret,” he said. Pine Jog, located in West Palm Beach near the Everglades, is a unit of the College of Education at FAU. Celebrating its 50th anniversary this year, Pine Jog offers free environmental education programs, but the biggest advantage for FAU graduate students is the volunteer work and hands-on teaching experience. FAU’s environmental education master’s degree, offered by the College of Education, gives students the opportunity to apply classroom work to practical experiences at Pine Jog. They can help teach students, work on curriculums with directors, and learn how to be “green.” The skills gained at Pine Jog are like none other, according to Michelle Garcia, a recent graduate of the master’s program who found a job as a park ranger with the Fish and Wildlife Service in Iowa. “The staff is so supportive of graduate students. They help us figure out what we want to do,” said Garcia. “It’s scary to know you’re done, but with everything I learned at Pine Jog, I’ll be able to take [it] with me to my new job.” Graduate students can live on any of the three houses on the property and get a few hours to teach children at Pine Jog Elementary School. The program is a paid assistantship that provides graduate students with professional experience. They earn $7,500 a year but are required to have a minimum of six credit hours per semester. “Personally, it’s one of the best things to ever happen to me­— I have 135 acres as my backyard,” said Matthew Magnoc, a graduate student who lives on the property. “One of the greatest experiences is to see the Pine Jog Elementary kids relate what they learn in the classrooms outside on the trails.” According to Magnoc, Pine Jog is environmentally friendly, but not everyone who visits knows everything about the center’s green features. The facility has recycling bins scattered throughout the property, uses solar power to heat water, and has reusable plates for social events. With the summer heat in the air, FAU students can spend the day on the lake, go hiking on the trails, or take a tour. “It’s beautiful [and] environmentally friendly,” said Kristina Cornwell, a senior secretary at the College of Education.

Teaching for a degree

MEDITERRANEAN


Dinosaurs and people mingle at West Palm Beach museum Michael Trimboli Staff Photographer James Gurney paints people riding armor-wearing dinosaurs. He isn’t 12, though. He’s 52. But he isn’t crazy. This New York-based artist has a degree in archaeology from the University of California at Berkeley. He just never seemed to outgrow his childhood fascination with dinosaurs. So, he created a fictional world called “Dinotopia” as the subject of a picture book series. The books detail the life of a 17th-century explorer who documents the lives of coexisting dinosaurs and humans. His art has been published into four books, but is now being exhibited at the Norton Museum of Art in West Palm Beach. “What I was trying to do was turn the simplistic nature of dinosaurs, turn those on their heads and look at them in a new way,” said Gurney. He wants to show dinosaurs as more than just predators by giving them more humanlike

characteristics. For example, the artist points out that dinosaur behavior includes courtship, migration, group behavior, communication, rearing of young and sleeping. The artist was inspired partly by American paleontologist Jack Horner, who discovered that some dinosaurs had motherly traits and took care of a specific nesting area. Gurney explained that this discovery changed the way humans view dinosaurs. He hopes to do the same through his art. The Dinotopia books are the illustrated journals of the main character, Arthur Denison. The explorer’s sketches capture Dinotopians — the humans and dinosaurs that live and work together on an island. Every member of the Dinotopian society has a role. Some Dinotopians take care of the young, while some dinosaur-human pairs act as flying messengers, who travel the Dinotopian continent. Others are metal workers, linguists, farmers and poop-picker-uppers. “He enjoys filling his images with a lot of wonderful information and detail,” said Glenn Tomlinson, curator of education at the museum, “so that when you look

at these paintings, you can really lose yourself in this imaginary world of Dinotopia.” Port St. Lucie resident Cindy Robinson, 47, agrees. “It puts [dinosaurs] in a new perspective. More as an equal,” said Robinson. “You always think of taking care of an animal, not the animal taking care of you.” After graduating from college, Gurney went to an art school where he met his now-wife Jeanette. After spending only a short period of time there, he was hired to paint backgrounds for the movie industry. “My vocation and avocation are in the visual arts,” said Gurney. “I’ve been lucky to make my living in this field.” After working in the film industry, he started illustrating. He painted more than 70 science fiction and fantasy paperback book covers and was commissioned by the U.S. Postal Service to illustrate 17 stamps. He also illustrated for National Geographic for two decades. continued page 8

when you look this good, you match with anything.

A Camarasaurus leads a picnic outing in James Gurney’s oil painting The Excursion, which appears in the artist’s Dinotopia book series. The word “Dinotopia� is a combination of “dinosaur� and “utopia.� According to Gurney, the fictitious world of Dinotopia has no religious or political significance. He wanted to give a more humorous look at dinosaurs and show that they are more than beasts. “I tried to make Dinotopia not outrageous,� he said. “I wanted to make it funny and interesting.�

The artist has had an interest in ancient cultures ever since he was a child. “I read those magazines as a kid, looking for pharaohs and dinosaurs. I knew I wanted to be an archaeologist,� said Gurney. “Archaeologists can reconstruct an entire culture. It’s amazing how little survives. I wanted the Dinotopia books to have a kind of National Geographic feel to them.� The artist’s interest in archaeology, and ultimately the inspiration that led Gurney to create Dinotopia, were the result of a visit to a museum as a child. “My parents pointed to the skeleton of the Allosaurus and said, ‘That’s a dinosaur,’� explained Gurney, who for years afterward believed that the Allosaurus skeleton would hop off its pedestal at night and run around the halls of the museum. “The idea of a skeleton coming to life was an idea that occupied my imagination as a kid.� Taking his fascination with dinosaurs, archaeology and art to the next level, Gurney began to construct the Dinotopian world. He started with a few unrelated paintings he had completed in his off time. From there, he created the first of four Dinotopia books, A Land Apart from Time, which has about 180 paintings. The art took about a year or two to complete.

Gurney went to great effort to be as scientifically correct as possible. To complement this, the Norton exhibit even includes three fossil casts borrowed from the Fort Lauderdale Museum of Discovery and Science, including an Allosaurus claw. “These allow us to tell another part of the story, and that is that Gurney has always been interested in the science behind his illustrations,� said Glenn Tomlinson. “He wants to make these dinosaurs as anatomically precise and correct as scholarship allows us to. He has worked a lot with the paleontologists.� The artist also strived to make his work as lifelike as possible. For example, in an attempt to get human figures correct, he would gather his wife, his two children and the families of his New York neighborhood together for dress-up parties. They would pose for a painting or photo so that Gurney could be accurate in his representation of a Victorian-age look. Before Gurney starts a painting, in order to create a more realistic world, he builds multiple homemade models and studies them ­to see, for example, how light would fall on a building. As Gurney put it, “What I am trying to do with the Dinotopia pictures is make an imaginary world completely believable, where you can take it for granted.�

If you want to go The exhibit Dinotopia: The Fantastical Art of James Gurney contains more than 50 original oil paintings from artist James Gurney’s Dinotopia book series. It also contains some pieces that show the artist’s process, like models and sketches, along with three dinosaur fossil casts. l When: The exhibit runs through Sept. 5. Museum hours are 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Tuesdays through Saturdays and 1 p.m. to 5 p.m. on Sundays.

match. She also made a career-high 12 saves in the team’s 1-1 tie against the University of Arkansas. Lantes’ backups will be untested redshirt freshmen Courtney Zwetsch and Manon Transleau. “We lack depth in the goalie position,” said Gnehm. “But Ashley anchors that with her performance from last year. She has the ability to make the big-time saves.”

After barely missing the playoffs last season, the FAU women’s soccer team is looking to bounce back, but will try to do so with a relatively young team. The Owls will need to overcome a 2009 season in which they went 5-12-3 (3-7-1 in the Sun Belt Conference) and missed the conference playoffs, hosted at FAU, by losing 1-0 to rival FIU in the final regular-season game. The team’s biggest weakness last season was its attacking. One of the team’s top players, Laura Hyvonen, battled injuries most of the season. This year, the senior is returning in full health Laura Hyvonen to a team that has worked on building depth at forward. “I’m excited to see her intermix with the newcomers to the team,” said assistant coach Chris Gnehm. “I think taking some of the load off her will help her have a better season. Other teams will have more to watch out for than just her.” Hyvonen will be playing with a total of 16 freshmen — almost half the team’s roster. Among the top newcomers are Jesse Shugg, Brittany Nash, and Alexandra Major. “We have a lot of strong, positiveAshley Lantes minded girls coming in,” said senior Janelle Blake. “I feel like we’ve overcome a lot of obstacles from last year and have a better mindset. A lot of people have showed up early to start practicing.” Blake will be the team captain this year. She is known for being a very vocal player both on and off the field. Last season saw her start in all 20 games and score her first career goal in a 2-0 victory over regionally ranked Cal Poly. Ashley Lantes will return as the starting goalkeeper. Last season, she led the Sun Belt Conference with 135 saves and 7.50 saves per

The team’s focus on defense and neglect for offense was the source of their poor record last season. Bringing four new forwards and including more youth into the team might help close that gap. “Our goal this year was to bring in a lot of kids who can score goals,” said Gnehm. “We feel that that depth in the roster is what will wear down opposing teams.” Janelle Blake knocks down MTSU’s Jen Threlkeld at a home game in 2008.

Sophomore Cintia Nightingale sets the ball for teammate Joanne Tate in a game against FIU last season.

Earlier this month, graduated player Krystena Castro, last season’s star middle blocker, was nominated to receive the NCAA Woman of the Year Award. The award “honors graduating studentathletes who have distinguished themselves throughout their collegiate careers in the areas of academic achievement, athletics excellence, service and leadership,” according to the NCAA website. While Castro’s final season did not end on a good note for the team, she still had an incredible season individually and ended her career in the top 10 in numerous school categories. Blair Bodenmiller of FAU’s softball team is also a nominee for the NCAA Woman of the Year Award.

Following a disappointing season, the Lady Owls hope to prove this year that last season was just a case of bad luck. FAU went 6-19 last year, and only two of those games were in front of a home crowd. The team couldn’t manage to string together more than two consecutive wins while struggling to overcome an injuryridden roster. Head coach Jody Brown feels that this year will be different because he has all his players returning, with the exceptions of junior Kristen Cleland, who suffered a career-ending knee injury last year, and now-graduated Krystena Castro, one of few bright spots in last year’s campaign. “This year — knock on wood — we think that we are much stronger and we have everyone returning,” said Brown. “The girls have been training really hard all summer and all spring. Everyone looks like they are in fantastic shape and so we think we are going to be much more competitive this year.” Not only do the players agree with Brown, but they have their goals set and are determined to reach them. “The whole team got better, and most of them stayed here over the summer and have been working really hard towards our goal,” said senior Joanne Tate, the team’s starting setter. “And that goal is to win the Sun Belt and go to the NCAA Championships this year.” According to Brown, three players will have major roles this tseason: sophomore Cintia Nightingale and seniors Joanne Tate and Anne Vaughan. Nightingale is the team’s libero. According to Brown, Nightingale will be one of the top two or three libero’s in the Sun Belt this year. Tate is FAU’s returning setter, and Brown believes she’ll be the best setter in the Sun

Belt Conference by season’s end. Vaughan is the team’s starting right side. Last season she suffered a season-ending knee injury early in the year. However, according to Tate, Vaughan is 100-percent recovered. A healthy team is a welcomed relief for the Owls, who lost Vaughan and Cleland last season to knee injuries. The loss of these two starters made it difficult for the team to play at the level they know they are capable of. “It was majorly  injuries [that contributed to the bad season] because it takes two starters out of the six,” said Brown. “It puts you down pretty fast.” The Lady Owls struggled to function as a team on the court as they tried to become familiar with the new players who were thrown into the starting lineups. “I felt a little overwhelmed with what we had to accomplish with so many new players,” said Tate. “But overall it was great, the group became pretty tight.” The Lady Owls have a lot to prove, but they are confident that by the end of this season they will have won enough matches to help them forget last year’s hardships.

The ashtray outside the Boca campus library used to be very popular. The only problem: It was in a nonsmoking area. “Why would you put an ashtray where people aren’t supposed to smoke?â€? asked Kassie Nieves, a senior marketing major, with her arms stretched out for emphasis and a cigarette dangling between her ďŹ ngers. Nieves is not the only student frustrated at FAU Boca’s new smoking policy. The new set of rules was enacted in January and designated the areas where students could light up. However, without a clear set of punishments for breaking the rules, some students are simply ignoring them. They feel that since administration does not seem to care about its new rules, neither should they. Many smokers disregard these rules because administration failed to cover most of the designated smoking areas before initiating their new policy. Without cover, students are forced to smoke elsewhere in order to stay dry. “I got yelled at by a girl for smoking in a nonsmoking area, but it was raining. So, I told her she could move if she wanted to,â€? freshman psychology major Jordan Paul said. “They don’t offer any place with a cover. If it’s raining, we’re screwed.â€? Melea Trindade, a sophomore sociology major, agreed with Paul, adding that she refuses to be rained on just to adhere to school policy. “If it’s raining, I’ll ďŹ nd a place that’s covered. If it’s cold, I’ll ďŹ nd a place in the sun. If I’m walking from my car, I’ll ďŹ nish my cigarette,â€? she said. Jaylene Elick, a freshman history major and a nonsmoker,

noticed this frame of mind. “Smoking designation spots are horrible. People smoke anywhere anyway,â€? she said. Some smokers would make an effort to conform to the rules if administration was willing to compromise. “[Designated smoking areas] are inconvenient, but we can deal with that as long as the areas are covered,â€? said Paul. Most smokers, like Paul, claim to smoke between classes and do so on their normal track without stopping at a designated area. “If it’s walking between classes not in the Breezeway, I’ll smoke wherever,â€? he said. “If there was a ‘no smoking in the Breezeway’ rule, I’d be ďŹ ne with that.â€? Some students ďŹ nd the designated areas themselves to be problematic. Chris Mulcan, a freshman communication major, claimed that the areas do not prevent secondhand smoke or its harmful effects on nonsmokers. “Designation still allows for secondhand with smoke blowing around,â€? said the smoker. “You can’t designate the air.â€? Pointing at a designated smoking area across from the Business Building (BU), Kassie Nieves said, “I didn’t even see the ashtrays there because this area is under a tree. It’s nasty, and there are things that fall on me, and I don’t want to sit there.â€? But some students, like Kim Pekala, a senior English major, ďŹ nd the areas comfortable. She said, “There is a social community among smokers. I prefer having a regular place to smoke. This way, the smoking assists me in smoking socially.â€? There are those who think
