University reviews options for WGBU By Hannah Benson Campus
The University hosted the last of four community forums that
discussed the reverse FCC auction for WBGU-TV on Wednesday, Sept.
University President Mary Ellen Mazey and Chief Communications
Officer David Kielmeyer made opening statements to those at the
forum before the floor was opened to comments.
Mazey introduced five University trust- ees and said she and
Kielmeyer “are here to listen.”
Margaret Tucker, who founded the sta- tion with her husband Duane
Tucker, was present in the audience.
Kielmeyer said the FCC approached the University to sell the
station because there is a need to free up the spectrum to meet the
need of airwaves for mobile devices.
For stations that choose to participate, a reverse auction will be
held; meaning the auction will start with the highest amount and go
down from there.
He then explained the four options available to the University in
regards to the reverse FCC auction.
Applause from the audience followed
Kielmeyer saying the first option, which is to not
The other three options include chan- nel-sharing with another
station, switch- ing from UHF to VHF signal, or to sell the station
and stop broadcasting.
After Mazey and Kielmeyer’s open- ing comments, Secretary of the
Board of Trustees Patrick Pauken led the forum, giving audience
members two minutes to speak each.
One after the other, audience members voiced their opinion on the
Everyone who spoke said they did not want the University to sell
Mayor Richard Edwards was the first of community members to speak
at the forum.
“I am joining with the President of City Council, Michael Osbacher,
and the members of City Council who voted unanimously on August 17,
2016 in sup- port of keeping WBGU-TV on the air,” Edwards

Siamese fighting fish aren’t an aggressive spe- cies and shouldn’t
be known as a killer, as if it’s a type of anglerfish that can only
survive by hunting. While they are competitive and will go after
fish with long tails or bright colors, and specifically their own
kind, this can be prevented. Like many other college students, I
adopted my first pet from a dirty cup—an eight-inch-circumference
that a small, plain fish had known since the day that it hatched
from it’s egg. Because I had raised betta fish before, I was aware
that science has misin- formed people on their proper care for
years, and I had to search through the recesses of old books to
find out that betta fish are actually very fragile, and as needy as
any other fish.
Unfortunately, a large percentage of other college students knew
what they had been told from pet stores, or from a website that has
no actual scientific background. Betta fish are known to be able to
survive in shallow puddles, but just because they can live through
those poor conditions doesn’t mean that they should. In an ideal
environment, a betta fish is most comfortable in a tank or a bowl
that is at least one gallon deep, with a scattering of
pebbles on the bottom. These pebbles collect all of the particles
that sink to the bottom, such as leftover food. If a filter is
allowed for the type of aquarium that the fish is kept in, it
should be kept on the lowest setting. Strong streams can distress
the betta fish. Other items that are strongly advised are a plant
with long leaves, because betta fish often rest against these, and
a cave for them to nestle down in.
You can be sure that your betta fish is at his happiest (I say male
because most pet shops offer this gender, rather than females) when
he swims to the surface and blows a nest of bubbles. This habit
comes from their breeding habits, which involve the male betta
encasing the eggs in bubbles and pushing those up. At this point,
he knows that his home is a satisfactory place to provide for his
While most people think of betta fish as vio-
lent creatures that attack any moving object in sight, I can
reassure them that betta fish are doc- ile and calm creatures,
which will follow your finger and rush to the top in a feeding
frenzy whenever you so much as bump the food con- tainer. I have
two bettas, one that lives in a pack with three other species of
fish—a fat goldfish that really does eat everything, two Panda
Garra that are annoyingly hyper, and a Chinese algae eater that
thinks he’s the boss of the tank. He’s been in there for years, and
is the one that I call the peacemaker. My other fish lives in his
own tank, and is residing with me in my dorm room. He enjoys being
spoiled as if he’s an invaluable species of the rare warm-blooded
Betta fish will act however you make them act, and while they’re
not normally frantic and violent, they will be if you put them in a
tank with the wrong fish. Just like dogs and cats, fish are
reactive to the people who own them, and their behaviors will
reflect if you are taking care of them properly. Siamese fighting
fish will only fight if you want them to.

Arguably, volunteering comes with more weight than a paid
Imagine a friend of yours said to you that they would help you move
this com- ing weekend. Now imagine that they stood you up.
How would you feel? Of course, it would vary from person to person,
but undoubtedly one would be reasonably miffed at having not been
contacted in any way about their deci- sion to bail on you.
Why couldn’t they have just sent a text telling you not to wait up?
In today’s world, it is hard to imagine a reason someone could not
manage to do this, barring some extreme emergency.
And yet, I would suspect that we all have found ourselves in both
situations. The flake and the flaked on.
There are any number of reasons people
would choose to bail on a volunteer gig, but that is not what I am
But why on earth would we simply not send a message?
It is not OK to promise to do something and then not only not
follow through, but leave people hinged on whether you actually
will or not. Like waiting all day for your friend to show up to
help you move your furniture.
Many volunteer opportunities do not have the luxury of extending
their time outside what was originally alotted, outside of the time
you may have signed up for. Sometimes, groups will have to turn
volunteers away because a spot was already promised to you.
Just because you’re not getting paid doesn’t make it justified for
you to bail at the last minute and simply not tell anyone. They
will, in fact, miss you if you’re not there.
But really, I am not trying to condemn any- one that has failed at
volunteering. All I am asking is that, in the future, you are
honest and open with yourself.
If you can’t or just don’t want to follow through and think they
will be upset, they won’t be nearly as upset as when they are
counting on you til the bitter end.
Send that awkward text and you will save yourself some face, and
other hard-working people’s time.

“Unconventional” seems to be a buzzword in my life.
I attended four universities on two conti- nents-- studying history
at each--before gradu- ating from Bowling Green State University,
and I could not possibly be more pleased with the decisions which
have brought me to my current standing in life.
American culture and universities have established a prototypical
view of a conven- tional track in life; go to school, get good
grades, get a job in your field, have a house, have 2.3 children
and a dog. However, the unconventional track is always an option,
even if it’s not addressed.
The world is changing more rapidly than our cultural, preconceived
ideas of tracks in life can keep up with. Colleges and universities
are not trade schools or apprenticeships, and we shall no longer
envision our chosen degree as a career track we must study, pursue
and remain in.
At a time when one of my previous universi- ties is pushing for
students to work towards a conventional life plan-- I believe it is
important to share my path.
My decision to pass up an opportunity for postgraduate education
ensured my uncon- ventional path for the moment that I would not
pursue academia as a profession. While
conventional thought is that a history degree is a funnel to
academia, this is not always true. Further to the point, my
decision to not pursue a postgraduate degree has not eliminated my
opportunities within the education field.
As I mentioned, the world is changing and new marriages in
interdisciplinary fields are being created faster than we can keep
up with. Liberal arts degrees remain the perfect field of study to
exploit these changing markets.
I am currently employed in the tech indus- try, I serve as
“Director of Research” for an emerging video game company based out
the largest up-and-coming tech market in the world- Orlando,
Florida. My company, Cherry Pie Games (www.cherrypiegames.com), is
an emerging company- particularly with virtu- al reality
technologies as we develop for new and exciting products like the
Oculus Rift, Wearality Sky, Leap Motion, Razer Forge and numerous
What is most exciting about this company is that it embodies an
unconventional track. The
company is owned by four young and diverse individuals made up of
two artists, a program- mer and a linguist who handles marketing
and development. An influential part of this company’s success is
contingent upon their flexibility and ability to break from conven-
tional thought, and that is exactly how they like to operate.
Current development is on a Tony Hawk meets Crazy Taxi style game
named “Tacopocalypse” in which the player is navigat- ing an
apocalyptic environment while deliver- ing tacos; a playable
pre-alpha demo is cur- rently available online. While the rest of
my team develops this game, I am busy using my skills within
history to look to the future.
Our next pipeline project is a large, expand- ed follow-up to
“Hollow,” a previous project which continues to gain us notoriety
within the field. “Emmerholt” will take place in the same universe,
that of an inventive role- playing game set within the time period
of the Revolutionary War and the setting of the Headless Horseman.
My role remains a per- fect blend of education and entertainment as
I collect resources to help make the game as historically relevant
My preexisting knowledge of Revolutionary War era New England
society is only as well thoroughly research as that of the next
ties specialist; however, what I learned in my liberal arts degree
was not a series of dates, names and places but, instead, the
ability to seek out information, the ability to collect it and the
ability to understand this information within the proper
In an age where, if one more person tells me the movie “300” was
“fairly accurate” I might lose my mind, I have the ability to
positively influence the way history is viewed in popular
From an aesthetic point of view, I am able to provide historically
accurate reference mate- rial for concept art, not only to affect
the land- scape of a game but also inspire the storyline.
Going forward there have been many ideas thrown around the Cherry
Pie Games office about making games that are not only enter-
taining but also educational through their historical accuracy. My
favorite idea is an open world Roman RPG that would involve
recreating Roman buildings and architec- ture that is accurate down
to each brick. Developing a world this large and in depth that is
based on true events would involve utilizing the knowledge of many
sources including historian experts.

Big Gay Welcome started off the year on stage with drag
performances, poetry readings and heartfelt awareness to the
violence that specifically surrounds trans woman of color on
Thursday, Sept. 3. The event was hosted by the Office of
Multicultural Affairs and hosted by Chris Lanton and Nadia Alzamami
in the Union Ballroom. Music was pro- vided by DJ Sage and food by
University catering services. Hannah Scheppler was the first act on
stage, playing the acoustic guitar while singing a self-written
song about BGSU. Soon after, Leslie Potts and Chris Lanton
participated in a collaboration of spoken word. Together, they read
a piece that reflected on the hardships of silence on one’s “true
self” and the effects it has on an individual. They encouraged
listeners to “empower yourself to speak” and to be “vulnerable.”
The speech began and closed with the quote: “The only thing more
frightening than speaking your truth is not speaking.” After a few
activities to engage the
audience with one another, the next performer, drag king RyDer
Gently came on stage. Gently performed again later that night, and
afterwards said, “For me, coming back is a very intricate aspect of
who I am and my identity. Be- ing able to perform is like being
able to embrace a full part of myself and it’s exhilarating.” After
the performance, the show took a drastic emotional turn when Lanton
and Alzamami reflected on the legal- ization of gay marriage.
Although it is seen as a win for those in support of the law,
Lanton and Al- zamami reminded those present that there are many
who still oppose such changes. The president of Speak, Beatrice
Fields, controlled the stage as she read an original poem that
touched on the feel- ings she faced when being romantically
involved with someone of the same sex.
In the poem, Fields says, “Love is kind and patiently waiting,”
before coming to a close. Connie Lingus surprised watchers when she
first entered the stage in hospital scrubs and handcuffs, only to
strip down into a dress, sparkly boots and a wig. She continued to
show off her dance moves while jumping off stage and en- gaging
with the audience. Lingus said, “My favorite part is seeing the
look on people’s face and having them think, ‘what the hell is she
doing?’” Tayanna and Infiniti Sinclair continued the “drag” theme
as they both showed off heart- pumping individual performances. “My
favorite part of doing
this show is that people don’t really know what drag is, so we can
do something creative,” said Tayanna. The hosts of Big Gay Welcome
and four volunteers performed their renditions
of four short scripts, written by seven- year-old Miracle Children
Lyndon and Robert Stylges. When the hosts returned to stage, a
silence was held in respect for the 20 trans-colored woman who have
died this year. All performers returned to the stage and two
volunteers from the audience clapped and sang a memorial song in
honor of the women who have passed on. Assistant Director for
Access Diversity and Incusion Programs, Tobias Spears, closed the
event, asking the perform- ers to return to the stage and give a
“gay bow.” “I love the BGW because it allows us to celebrate LGBT
culture, but also recog- nizing the violence that occurs against
members of our community, specifically trans women of color,” said

The Bowling Green State University football team lost its season
opener Saturday to the number 25 ranked University of Tennessee
Head Coach Dino Babers’ returning offense ran 85 plays for 557
total yards of offense and 24 first downs. The Falcons were also a
perfect 3-for-3 on their fourth down attempts.
The Falcons redshirt senior quarterback Matt Johnson threw for a
career-high 424 yards, two touchdowns and no interceptions against
an aggressive Tennessee secondary in his first game back since last
years season- ending hip injury.
“I’m really excited to see him get the rust off to shine up and see
what he could become,” Babers said.
Redshirt junior Gehrig Deiter caught a career high seven catches
for a career high 133 yards to pace all Falcon receivers.
Ronnie Moore added 95 yards on five catches, redshirt-senior Chris
Gallon had three recep- tions for 45 yards and sophomore Roger
Lewis chipped in with two catches for 49 yards.
As a collective, the Falcon running backs combined for only 124
rushing yards against a strong Volunteers front seven. Junior Fred
Coppet led the Bowling Green rushing attack with 63 yards on 12
Redshirt-senior Ryan Burbrink, who also caught four passes for 70
yards, scored the teams lone rush- ing touchdown. Redshirt senior
Travis Greene regis- tered 34 yards on nine touch- es.
The Falcons got off to a quick start. On Bowling Greens opening
drive, Johnson con- nected with Lewis down the Tennessee
line for a 45 yard pass to eventually set up a 40 yard Tyler Tate
field goal to take a 3-0 lead.
Bowling Green’s defense struggled to keep Tennessee out of it’s end
would go on to score 21 unanswered points to take a 21 to 3 lead
with five min- utes remaining in the first quarter.
The Falcon offense punched right back, scoring 17 straight points
of their own to trim Tennessee’s lead to a single point at
Tennessee closed the half with two more touchdowns to take a 35-20
Out of the break, both teams came out fired up.
The Falcon defense forced a quick stop on a Volunteer drive and
then a pair of big plays
set up a BGSU touchdown. Johnson found Moore for a 23 yard
and a Coppet 31 yard rush got the Falcons down to the Vols seven
yard line. That was followed up by a Burbrink rushing touch- down
that cut the deficit to eight.
However, Tennessee returned the ensuing kickoff 65 yards. Then on
the first play from scrimmage, Vols quarterback Josh Dobbs
connected with Ethan Wolf for a 18-yard score, stretching the lead
back to 15 at 42-27.
After an 80 minute lightning delay, the Falcons tried to cut the
deficit once more, as Tate nailed his third field goal of the game
to pull Bowling Green to within 12 at 42-30. However, the Falcons
would not draw any closer.
Tennessee scored the game’s final 17 points to blow it open and
secure the win.
Bowling Green will travel to College Park this Saturday to take on
the University of Maryland Terrapins. Kickoff is scheduled for

Junior forward Pat Flynn continued his scoring with two goals last
By Zane Miller Sports Reporter The Bowling Green men’s soccer team
defeated Cleveland State 3-0 as junior forward and team scoring
leader Pat Flynn scored two goals to keep the team’s undefeated
record through four games.
Flynn first scored eight minutes and 51 seconds into the match,
then again at 66 minutes and 10 seconds for an insurance
Head coach Eric Nichols said that Flynn has been a difference maker
for the team both on the field and in the locker room and his
performance was an excellent example of the passion he brings to
“He can score in score in all kinds of different ways. His two
goals couldn’t be more different,” Nichols said. “He’s one of those
guys that if we’re playing well, he’s going to get us that goal
that separates us.”
Flynn said that the mentality among himself and the other forwards
of taking advantage of scoring opportunities helped lead to his two
goals and assist in the match.
“As a forward, you’re always trying to get one more, either an
assist or a goal,” Flynn said. “You’re always trying to be the
assassin, as coach would say. Every moment you get you want to take
full advantage of, so score early but keep scoring.”
Also with an exceptional game played was the
team’s defense, who only allowed two shots to come toward junior
goalkeeper Ryan Heuton, who made saves on both. The team has yet to
allow five or more shots on goal by the opposing team this
Senior defender Jake Genrich said that all the players on the
field, not just the defenders, helped hold Cleveland State to a low
number of scoring chances.
“It’s a team effort,” Genrich said. “It’s not just the guys in the
back. If you see the guys in the front, they’re always hustling to
get back behind the ball, and that makes our job easy.”
Also scoring a goal in the game was junior mid- fielder Joe
Sullivan, who got the match’s opening goal three minutes and 56
seconds into the first half.
Even with the early lead, the team tries not to let it affect the
rest of their game.
“You try not to let it change the way you play,” Nichols said.
“Really nice to try to get a little bit of separation, when it was
two (goals) we were looking for three, and even then the boys were
working pretty hard to get that fourth.”
Genrich also said that the team competed hard throughout the match
regardless of the early two goal lead.
“Anything can happen, so we’re always think- ing about defending
first,” Genrich said. “The next play is always the one that

Falcons look for a win after two straight losses By Evan Hayes
Sports Reporter With four games until the start of confer- ence
play, the Falcons women’s soccer team is going into their match
with the University of Findlay on Tuesday with a sense of how to
play their game. While it has been a rocky start to the season,
their 2-2 start is their best since 2009.
“We are 2-2 so we know we can win and we know we can score goals,”
head coach Lindsay Basalyga said. “We just need to tight- en up
with the things we can control and make plays in the moments where
players need to make plays.”
The Falcons hot start shined a light on their strengths, as they
earned two straight wins over Chicago State and Indiana University–
Purdue University Fort Wayne with solid
defensive play and an offensive attack that racked up seven goals
to start the season. The total was almost half (15) the total
number of goals scored in 2014.
However, the games that fol- lowed against Morehead State and
Detroit exposed the weak- nesses of the youthful Bowling Green
team. The offense that started the season was gone, replaced by a
lack of energy dur- ing the second half and undis- ciplined play on
the defensive end.
Uneven play is to be expect- ed from such a youthful team, but BG
is still a team on the rise, pushing through adversity and
ing harder to rebuild the program under Basalyga.
“We need to grind over the next couple of practices and come out
stronger against Findlay,” sophomore Rachel Winters said.
The Falcons 2-0 start was their best start to a season since 2000
and they have already matched their win total from last season at
home with two. They have recorded at least ten shots in four
straight games and their seven home goals already surpasses their
season total from last season (5).
It is the first time in school history that they opened with two
shut outs. “I believe in the character of the players we
have on the team, and that we are learning from each moment so they
can best affect the next opportunity we have to compete,” said
The Oilers are 1-0-1 to start their season. They won against Saint
Joseph’s College and tied Southern Indiana.
Falcon goalie and co-captain Lauren Cadel, an All-MAC Second Team
player, is 2-2 on the season with 11 saves.
Mikaela Couch leads BG with six total points and three goals, while
Skylar Fleake leads the team with two assists. Co-captain Hayley
Parkinson leads the team with seven shots on goal.
The team starts it’s match against Findlay at 7 p.m. on Tuesday at
“We are 2-2 so we know we can win and we know we can score goals.”

By Michael Milhim Reporter Updates have been made on Canvas for
both faculty and students recently, involving sev- eral different
administrative offices at the University.
Most students on campus could describe what Canvas is and how it is
used, but many may not be able to describe how it is main- tained
Paul Cesarini, executive director of the Center for Faculty
Excellence, said that many different administrative offices need to
be involved in Canvas upkeep, because one office could not
accommodate the variety of reasons that students, faculty and staff
How is Canvas maintained and updated then? The three basic stages
start with fac- ulty, staff and student feedback gathered from
surveys, seminars and Canvas train- ing sessions. Using that input,
administrative offices like the CFE discuss what changes would make
Canvas better for everyone. Once those changes are decided, a
department like Information Technology Services implements the
actual coding so that a changed Canvas
appears when everyone signs in. University administration are not
ones making changes on Canvas though. The Canvas learning
management system, or LMS, is owned by the education technol- ogy
company Instructure, and they peri- odically update Canvas too.
Some of these changes happen without the permission of the
The University administration does have a choice in what learning
technology integra- tions, or LTI, they use and do not use though.
For instance, Turnitin is the plagiarism detec- tion software that
the University uses, but there are other similar LTIs that
administra- tion could have chosen instead.
Think of Canvas as an iPhone: the LTIs are apps and the whole LMS
is like the version of iOS. A user can choose whatever apps they
want from the app store, but when a new version of iOS comes out it
is necessary to upgrade.
Instructure gives the details of their updates in their release
notes on the community sec- tion of their website
Some of the Canvas changes that students will notice is the ability
to do anonymous peer reviewing and that the “submit” but- ton for
assignments is more noticeable. Other updates include being able to
see the details of a locked assignment and an icon in place of a
grade when a quiz is not completely graded.
Most of the recent updates have been for staff and faculty. Donald
Schumacher, senior applications developer for ITS, said that the
recent updates enable faculty to excuse individual students from
assignments and also assign individual students assignments instead
of a whole class section. Faculty can now also enable liking on
In addition to all these changes, Instructure has created a new
beta version of Canvas with a more streamlined home page that
resem- bles the Windows 8 tile layout with a left-hand toolbar for
other options. University adminis- tration has not commented on
whether they want to try this new beta version or not.

Bowling Green’s very own Stimmel’s Market has been named the best
bakery in Wood County for what is now the 12th consecutive
Stimmel’s Market is also a deli, farmer’s market and catering
Mel Stimmel, the current owner of Stimmel’s Market, said by keeping
the same night baker for the past 25 years they have been able to
maintain a consistently high quality product. Stimmel made it clear
that they never sell day old baked goods and what is left over at
the end of the day get’s donated to the food pantry.
“It’d be quality people and a desire to keep our quality up,”
Stimmel said when asked what he attributes his success to. He and
the employees frequently visit other delis and bakeries around
Northwest Ohio to assure that they are staying ahead of the
As far as moving forward, Stimmel and his staff have begun taking
on decorated cook- ies, and they see that as a significant growth
opportunity for the business. Along with this, Stimmel’s Market are
able to print images with edible ink onto cookies. This has already
seen success with birthdays, anniversaries, weddings and even sales
reps printing their business cards onto cookies and sending them to
Stimmel also mentioned that he has been experimenting with flavored
popcorn and hopes to expand into that area as well.
When asked if the larger chains in Bowling Green have posed any
threat to the business Stimmel responded, “If you make product from
scratch with quality ingredients they’ll never be able to touch you
on quality”. Stimmel also mentioned that the key to the company’s
success is their customer set. For those who are not interested in
going to the large box stores, Stimmel’s Market provides a
welcoming, easy in easy out experience.
With no city money or grants it is all grass- roots down at
Stimmel’s Market. Those inter- ested in sampling Stimmel’s baked
goods and deli meats can stop by the market at 1220 West Wooster
Street. The market also hosts a farmer’s market every Saturday
morning in the parking lot.

On Thursday Sept. 3 from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m., the University hosted
Campus Fest, a tra- dition that allows students to discover the
many organizations and opportunities on campus and in the
Campus Fest is designed as a way for stu- dents to get involved,
keep aware of what is going on during the school year and allow
some off-campus organizations to showcase themselves to
Graduate Assistant of Student Organization and Major Events, Julie
Wagner, says nearly 90 percent of the organizations who signed up
were in attendance.
“There were about 350 tables at the event; 300 were student
organizations, 20 were offic- es such as the Office of Marketing
and about 40 to 50 were off-campus organizations and activities,”
Although this was her first year at Campus Fest, freshman Chelsea
McBurrous took advantage of all opportunities.
“I tried to go to all tables even if I was not interested because I
wanted to have a great experience being that it is my first year
attending,” said McBurrous.
Campus Fest occurred in different sec- tions of campus this year
due to University Lawn undergoing reseeding. Campus Fest was
separated into three zones on the quads
between the Mathematical Science buildings and the Student Union,
around the Union Oval, and between the Education building and
Sophomore Katee Hinkle didn’t mind the location change.
“I don’t mind it being spread out, I actually prefer it this way,”
Ashley Parcell, sophomore and Apparel Merchandising and Product
Development major, thought otherwise.
“I hate that it is spread out, it is hard to inter- act with other
organizations when everyone is so far away from each other,” said
Graduate student Courtney Cox thinks that Campus Fest is a great
way to recruit new members. She was at Campus Fest to promote
KAIROS, a newer organization on campus that studies relevant
biblical wisdom with the purpose of discovering the truth about
“This is our first year at Campus Fest and I think it definitely
helps students become more aware of our organization, and a lot of
students (have) been signing up on our email list, so I would say
Campus Fest is effective,” said Cox.
“Every year I attend Campus Fest, and I learn about a new
organization every time. I love it,” said Junior Alexandria
No matter the location, Campus Fest serves as a way to interact
with different groups of people.
