Construction is underway ona new athletics facility that willfeature a track and field, softballand soccer facilities, and recre-ation center. The venue, namedRock Chalk Park, will be located innorthwest Lawrence.The University teamed upwith the City of Lawrence Parksand Recreation Department forthe project. The City Commissionapproved the KU portion of thepark in a Jan. 8 meeting, and grad-ing and groundwork are mov-ing forward. However, the city has not yet approved the plan forthe new recreation center. ErnieShaw, director of the Parks andRecreation Department, said thereis a possibility it could be approvedin the Feb. 19 meeting.Both Shaw and Kevin Loos, vicechair of the Parks and RecreationDepartment advisory board, saidthis project has been in the worksfor well over a decade. Shaw saidthe lack of recreation facilities onthe west side of town has been ahindrance for the city and the resi-dents living in the area.“It will give us a lot moreopportunity for programming andgive the people in the west anactual facility in their neighbor-hood. That’s our number one goal:to meet the needs of our citizens,”Shaw said. “It’s also an opportu-nity to host outside and regionaltournaments and bring dollars intothe city.”Loos, who has been on theboard for six years, said the recre-ation center has been a discussionsince his first day, but that KU hashelped push the process along by bringing in more support, as wellas financial assistance.“You get more bang for your

University, city to build rec center 
With less than two weeks notice,the School of Music’s TrumpetEnsemble travelled to WashingtonD.C. to represent the SunflowerState of at the PresidentialInaugural Parade.When the group originally designated to represent Kansasin the parade had to cancel atthe last minute, Kansas HouseRepresentative Barbara Ballardwas asked to suggest a replace-ment group of 15-20 members.The KU School of Music immedi-ately came to mind.Associate professor of TrumpetSteve Leisring jumped at theopportunity to play such a renownevent.“There wasn’t much sleep goingon for a week, there were so many details to take care of,” Leisringsaid. “I knew the students wouldcome through.”The students in the Ensembleperform with other groups includ-ing the basketball band and theorchestra, but being selected for alarge, national event like the presi-dential inauguration was an honorand a surprise.“I was shocked, first andforemost,” said junior SpencerMerryfield. “I didn’t realize wewould have that kind of far-reach-ing ability to go to big events. Itwas surprising and then kind of overwhelming.”Merryfield and the other trum-peters had ten days notice and tworehearsals before they packed theirbags and boarded a 20-personsleeper bus Friday afternoon forthe 21-hour ride to Washington,D.C.“We worked very hard in a shortamount of time and it certainly turned out well,” Merryfield said.The group stayed in a hotelin Virginia outside D.C. in timeto watch the men’s basketballgame against Texas Saturday after-noon and then pack in some quick sight-seeing. At 5:30 a.m. Monday,the group was up and working itsway toward the parade.The first of many security checkpoints and many delays wasat the Pentagon Building. Theensemble was fed breakfast whilesecurity officials searched the busand all band members. Around10:30 a.m., they arrived at theNational Mall, where they waitedin tents to avoid the cold throughlunch watching President Barack Obama take the oath of office andinaugural performances until they were able to line up for the paradeat 1:45 p.m.“Everywhere you went, therewere massive amounts of military personnel, police and security,”Merryfield said. “Everything was

Wewant to stay up on what is popu-lar. We need to have a place we’reproud of.”In preparation for the sum-mer 2013 renovations, a studenttask force was arranged.

buck,” Loos said of partner-ing with the University. “Thedeveloper has offered financingfor less for everybody, includ-ing the city.”According to a press releaseissued by KU Athletics, the track and field stadium will be able toseat up to 10,000 people, thesoftball stadium 1,500 and thesoccer stadium 2,500. The totalcost will be $39 million, spreadout over 30 years instead of anestimated $50 million, thanksto the partnership with the KUEndowment Association andThomas and Dru Fritzel of BlissSports.“By partnering and comingtogether, we can build in one loca-tion and save some on that infra-structure cost,” Shaw said. “We’rebeing able to share resourceswithout duplicating in separatelocations.”Loos thinks the project willbenefit the University as well asthe entire city by drawing in tour-ists for KU events and youth ath-letic tournaments, and in turn,more revenue from retail.“We’re continuing to devel-op a better relationship betweenKU and the city,” Loos said. “It’sreally been driven not only froma growth standpoint but also aneconomic standpoint, and bring-ing more into the city.”Although the two projects areseparate, Kansas athletic direc-tor Sheahon Zenger shares Loos’sbelief in the joint effort bringingprosperity to Lawrence.“If all the facilities are togeth-er, it will be a more vibrant park and it will be more of an econom-ic engine for Lawrence,” Zengersaid.Zenger’s intention in buildingthe park is to bring the track andfield, soccer and softball facilitiesup to par not only with those inthe Big 12, but with universitiesnationwide.“Now more than ever, youhave to stay at a certain level, not just with the competitiveness of your teams, but your facilities,”he said.By increasing the prestige of the arenas and changing the gameday atmosphere, having state-of-the-art facilities will also aid incompeting for recruits. Women’ssoccer coach Mark Francis saidthe impact the new stadium willhave on recruiting would mostlikely be the biggest difference.“It’s going to be like nightand day. It will put us on an evenplaying field with the rest of theconference from a facilities stand-point,” he said.Francis said every athleticdirector in his 14 years of coach-ing at the University has told himthat soccer would receive a new facility.“I’m grateful to them thatthey’ve made it happen and it’s areality now,” Francis said. “That’s very reassuring and I’m apprecia-tive.”

KJHK is giving a new meaningto “easy listening.” Te nationally acclaimed station has developed anew mobile application that allowslisteners to interact with DJs moreeectively via their smartphones.Stilwell junior Marc Schroeder,KJHK’s I Director, spent the allsemester developing an iPhone appthat provides KJHK media in an ac-cessible, convenient mobile ormat.“I’m a DJ, writer and requentsurer o KJHK content, so I am ex-cited to connect people to KJHK’sprogramming and media in thatnew context,” Schroeder said.With the app, users can streamlive broadcasts, view the program-ming schedule, call the station tosubmit song requests without hav-ing to look up the phone numberand access articles posted on theKJHK website.“We wanted to connect peopleto the articles written on KJHK,”Schroeder said. “In the last ew se-mesters, I have seen a lot more DJswriting more articles on the musicthey are passionate about, as wellas several new sports podcasts thatseem to have pretty vibrant ollow-ings.”Schroeder rearranged his classschedule during the all 2012 se-mester in order to schedule time ordevelopment. Te weekly equiva-lent o time he spent working, heestimated, was approximately thetime spent or a fve credit hourcourse.o introduce the app, KJHK willhost a launch party today romnoon to 2 p.m. in Media Crossroadson level 4 o the Kansas Union.Te event will debut the promo-tional video made or the app, andSchroeder will present in a “Meetthe Creator” segment. Studentswill also be able to directly down-load the app to mobile devices atthe event.Users can download the app reeo charge to iOS 6 enabled devicesthrough the App Store by searching“KJHK.”Schroeder has been the I Direc-tor or KJHK since January 2011.He has completed projects such asaiding in redesigning the station’swebsite that launched last year, andthis is the frst iPhone app he hascreated.“I think making non-commer-cial, orward programming easily accessible on their mobile deviceis something a lot o our listeners,present and uture, will see the val-ue o,” Schroeder said.

HOUSON — A ight betweentwo people erupted in gunireuesday at a Houston-area com-munity college, catching a main-tenance man in the crossire andleaving students and others cower-ing in classrooms.No one was killed, but the volley o gunshots heard just beore 1 p.m.sparked ear o another campusmassacre just more than a monthater 26 people were killed at anelementary school in Newtown,Conn.he shooting happened outsidebetween an academic building andthe library where Luis Resendiz,22, was studying on the secondloor. An employee called policeand then herded the 30 to 40 peo-ple in the library into a small roomand told them to crouch down,he said.Keisha Cohn, 27, was in a build-ing about 50 eet away and beganrunning as soon as she heard theshots.“o stay where I was wasn’t anoption,” said Cohn, who led toa building that houses computersand study areas. All the studentseventually were evacuated.Authorities oered no detailsabout what led to the ight. One o the people involved had a studentID, and both people were woundedand hospitalized, Harris County Sheri’s Maj. Armando ello said.A ourth person also was taken toa hospital or a medical condition,he said.Mark Zaragosa said he had justcome out o an EM class when hesaw two people who were injuredand stopped to help them.“he two people that I took careo had just minor injuries,” he toldKHOU-V. “One gentleman had agunshot to the knee and the (other)actually had an entry wound to thelower buttocks area.”Several school districts in exashave either implemented or areconsidering a plan to allow aculty to carry guns on campus. Whileguns are not allowed on collegecampuses, the exas Legislaturethis year may debate a bill thatwould allow them.Richard Carpenter, chancelloro the Lone Star College System,said the campus is a gun-ree zonethat “has been sae or 40 years.”“We think it’s still sae,” headded.Police evacuated and closedthe campus ater the shooting.
