Bill Gadberry, a 22-year-old Johnson County Community College student, was a victim o battery on the early morning o Jan. 25, when he was cut across the lef side o his ace and neck on the 1300 block o Ohio Street near the Jayhawk Cae.According to crime statistics on the City o Lawrence’s website, three neighborhood areas on the east side o campus received more reports o assault and battery than other areas near campus in 2013. Te three neighborhoods encompass the areas rom the intersection o 15th and Louisiana streets and areas to the north-northeast, to the intersection o sixth and Massachusetts streets. Te neighborhood that includes Massachusetts Street possessed the highest number o crimes committed with a total o 165 assault and battery cases reported, ollowed by the adjacent two neighborhood sections, which had a combined total o 88 assault and battery crimes reported in 2013. Tough these numbers have come down rom 2012, incidents in the area have already been reported in 2014.Gadberry and his riend eventually ended their night at the Hawk, where, afer leaving the bar at closing time, they were both attacked. According to Sgt. rent McKinley, Lawrence Police Department public affairs officer, the assailant was being escorted out o the bar. McKinley said the two were outside in ront o the bar when they supposedly saw someone being escorted out o the bar by staff members. “For whatever reason, they hollered and basically said something when the guy turned around and tried to get [back] into the bar,” McKinley said. “Tey said something to the effect o ‘Hey, don’t you know it’s closed?’ and basically this upset or angered the person.”McKinley also said that “the  victims were, by description,  very intoxicated,” and that “they

Kansas coaches compete to recruit volunteers, funds
Kansas Big Brothers Big Sisters has created a new friendly competition to put the University of Kansas, Kansas State and Wichita State head-to-head in order to increase funds and the number of mentors in the program.
“Kids are going to live their lives. You can’t live being scared.”BILL GADBERRYStudent at JCCC
Kansas Big Brothers Big Sisters has created a new riendly competition to put the University o Kansas, Kansas State University and Wichita State University head to head in order to increase unds and the number o mentors in the program.Te campaign, “Go Big or Go Home,” will eature the men’s basketball coaches rom the three schools: Bill Sel, Bruce Weber and Gregg Marshall. “We are using this campaign to raise additional unds but also raise awareness o the act that we have a need or  volunteers to become mentors in our program,” said Stacie Schroeder, area director or Big Brothers Big Sisters.Te campaign will ocus on the annual Bowl or Kids’ Sake undraiser, which is the main undraiser or the Big Brothers Big Sisters program. Schroeder said it costs about $1,000 to make a match in the program. When people register or the undraiser, they can select which coach they want to receive the credit or their donations or credit or their signing up to become a mentor.At the conclusion o the competition, the coach that raises the most unds and recruits the most mentors will receive a traveling trophy and bragging rights over the other schools. Douglas County has a current list o 160 kids waiting to be matched with mentors. In Kansas, 4,000 kids are on the waiting list, with 70 percent o those kids being boys. Big Brothers Big Sisters does same-gender, one-to-one matches and takes pride in its effort to make the relationships last. “We are really taking the time to make sure that they have thesame interests so that we canmake a relationship grow ormany years,” Schroeder said. om Hung, a junior romKaohsiung, aiwan, has been part o the Big Brothers Big Sisters program or a little more than a year.“It’s a lot o un and agreat way to give back to the community,” Hung said. “Just by hanging out, you might change a kid’s lie and they might grow up to be a betterperson who can continue to improve the community.Hung serves as a big brother to a third grader at HillcrestElementary who loves to play basketball and go to the park with Hung.Hung thinks using Sel will help bring attention tothe program and, hopeully,more male volunteers. Hung’s “brother” has two brothers on the waiting list.Hung promotes the Big

When searching for a fraterni-ty to call home, Devante Green didn’t need to search further than the successful men of this nation like Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., or Turgood Marshall — both of which were promi-nent men of Alpha.“As a young black man at a predominantly white university I identified more with a histor-ically black Greek letter organi-zation,” said Devante Green, a  junior from Lawrence and presi-dent of Alpha Phi Alpha Upsilon Chapter.Now young Latino men will have the same opportunity Green has had. Te University is making changes by expanding its racial di- versity on campus by bringing in Phi Iota Alpha, the oldest Latino fraternity in existence.Te mission of Phi Iota Alpha is to accept different cultures and lives, and stress the impor-tance of academics and building a second family to serve as a sup-port system. Hugo Macias, a graduate assis-tant from Garland, exas, and director of expansion for Phi Iota Alpha, is excited to be help bring the fraternity to campus. It’s the perfect time for Phi Iota Alpha to be a part of greek life, Macias said. “KU needs Latino awareness, different points of view for Latino men, and anybody who wants to dig roots and learn,” Macias said.Phi Iota Alpha plans to positively impact the University by empha-sizing minority involvement on campus and reminding students of their backgrounds. In doing this there will be no recruitment pro-cess, rather the fraternity will focus on building friendships.According to the SILC, 17 per-cent of the undergraduate pop-ulation at the University belongs to a sorority or fraternity with-in one of four Greek councils: Interfraternity Council (IFC), Panhellenic Association (PHA), Multicultural Greek Council (MGC) or National Pan-Hellen-ic Council (NPHC).Rueben Perez, director of the SILC, said despite strict non-dis-crimination policies, both IFC and PHA chapters have mostly Caucasian members, and the MGC and NPHC chapters have mostly Hispanic or black mem-bers. Although Perez has seen people of color join chapters within IFC or PHA and Cauca-sians join chapters in the MGC and NPHC.“I would certainly welcome seeing all four councils have even larger representation in terms of racial diversity,” Perez said. Students like Michelle Marron would agree because she be-lieves there is major room for ra-cial integration within the greek community.“One of the advantages of greek life is that you are creating a lasting bond with other men and women, no matter where they come from,” said Marron, a junior from Kansas City Kan., and vice-president of Sigma Iota Alpha. “However, are you really stepping out of what you know when you stay in a certain racial group?”Te United States has been called a melting pot full of dif-ferent cultures and racial groups that exist separately but also as one. Multicultural chapters in MGC or historically black chap-ters in NPHC exist separately while also being a part of the whole of KU greek life.“It distracts us from even larg-er issues, like the distinct racial divide in greek life. I don’t think the problem is in the divide so much as the lack of ever coming together,” Green said.

LGBTQ awareness to bring equality to KU 
“I think it’s important to be educated on all types of people”GRACE LONGVP, KU Queers and Allies
Greek diversity improves with Latino frat
A Supreme Court ruling in Maine made waves for transgender students everywhere last week when it ruled public school officials  violated the states anti-discrimination law when they would not allow a teenager who identifies herself as transgender to use the girls’ bathroom, according to the Washington Post.Te ruling marks the first time a state court declared denying a transgender student access to a restroom with which they identified with as unlawful. Many schools across the country are developing policies of their own for transgender students, including the University of Kansas.Laverne Cox, transgender activist and actress who stars in the Netflix series “Orange Is the New Black,” is also taking a stand with transgender awareness. She is traveling the U.S. to talk about her journey to womanhood, and will be  visiting the University this evening at 7 p.m. at Murphy Hall.Te Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, ransgender and Queer (LGBQ) Resource Center and KU Queers and Allies, both sponsors of the Laverne Cox event, are working to help the lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer, questioning, intersex and asexual (LGBQQIA) community at the University overcome the limited resources and acceptance challenges it currently faces on campus. LGBQ Resource Center coordinator Michael Detmer says the community prefers to be referred to as LGBQQIA. He said some of its greatest challenges include residence hall housing assignments based on an individual’s sex at birth, limited gender-neutral restrooms and no full-time staff members dedicated to LGBQQIA issues. Te center is working to get the University’s administration to acknowledge, understand and take action to enhance resources. “Tankfully, our university non-discrimination policy includes gender identity, gender expression and sexual orientation,” Detmer said. “Tis gives us a foot to stand on when trying to implement the policies or procedures regarding these issues.” Tis includes implementing more single-use, gender-neutral restrooms on campus to alleviate the potential distress and harm gendered restrooms can cause LGBQQIA students. Te organizations are also striving to obtain a physical space dedicated to the LGBQQIA community and issues — “A place for students of all genders and sexualities to come learn, relax, talk and explore the ins and outs of gender and sexual diversity and how it impacts every person, regardless of straight, gay, aesexual, intersexual, transgender, etc.,” Detmer said. Education and awareness of the LGBQQIA community are the keys to overcoming these problems, Detmer said. “Education leads to awareness, and then insight and perspective, which leads to empowerment, and then action, which leads to justice,” he said. Grace Long, KU Queers and Allies vice president, agrees. “I think it’s important to be educated on all types of people, so that you can be the most understanding individual possible,” Long said. “You aren’t going to be able to go through life without knowing, working with or maybe even living with a queer person.”Te organizations help promote LGBQQIA awareness through several programs and events. eaching Safe Zone is an intensive training program where KU staff, students and GAs can discuss LGBQQIA terminology and language and learn how to be good allies and resources for the community. Monthly events and programs also educate the public. “Gaypril” is a month long celebration in April consisting of trainings, discussions and social eventssupporting LGBQQIA issues.ransgender discussions andevents on campus also help to work on trans educationduring ransgender AwarenessMonth in November. Long, who identifies asgender queer, said that whilethe LGBQQIA community at large has made enormous progress in gaining acceptanceand equality in the past few years, people still face daily challenges.“Being LGB affects many aspects of our lives that many people take for granted,” Longsaid. “I think we also struggle with accepting ourselves andwho we are. A lot of us seek approval from the outsideworld and when that outsideworld isn’t always the most embracing, some of us takethat grief upon ourselves.We are working every day toshow that even though we aredifferent, we are still peoplelike everyone else.”

Te millennial generation, which many college students belong to, has gotten a bad rap or a long time. Generation Y, also called Generation Me, has been called “lazy” and “entitled.However, a wealth management company released a new study saying Generation Y is the most fiscally conservative generation since those born during the Great Depression. UBS Wealth Management Americas conducted the study that said the majority o those aged 21 to 36, “the millennial generation,” think the best financial advice they received was to save money. Emma olle, a senior rom Shawnee, works our jobs to afford college-related expenses and post-grad lie. olle works at arget, KU Dining, the Department o Student Housing and as a student ambassador. “I am trying to save up as much money as I can or afer college so I don’t have to worry about living paycheck to paycheck,” olle said. “I work about 40 to 45 hours a week.”olle, a management and leadership major in the School o Business, said her parents “always encouraged saving.Many students are also in olle’s situation. While millennials value education, it is also important to save while still in college. According to the Pew Research Centern, the millennial generation is on track to become the most educated generation in American history. In 2008 a record 39.6 percent o 18 to 24 year olds were enrolled in college. But many are also paying the price or that education with one in eight millennials 22 or older moving back in with their parents, according to Pew. Te study shows that the financial recession o 2008 had a lasting impact on our generation. “2008 was a very jarring experience or everybody,” said Donna Ginther, proessor o economics at the University. “People learned they couldn’t take financial markets or granted.” According to Ginther, the Great Recession o 2008 showed millennials that a good  job is something that can’t be taken or granted. Ginther also noted that millennials are the children o the baby boomers, who on average, didn’t handle money very well. It is possible that they are learning rom their parent’s mistakes. Te study also noted some other surprising trends with millennials. O those surveyed, 69 percent o millennials believed that success required hard work and 45 percent believed it required saving and living rugally. Another surprising act rom the study is that one o the millennials top financial concerns is their parent’s finances, another effect o the great recession. wenty-one percent o millennials are concerned about their parents financial utures while only 4 percent o baby boomers were concerned with their parents finances. But parents are concerned too. Only 18 percent o baby boomers think their children would have more financial stability. Not as surprising is the idea that millennials equate success with financial stability, with 48 percent saying that financial reedom is the most important actor in defining success. While the study states “Only 12 percent o Millennials said they would invest ound money in the market,” Ginther expects that the millennials will invest much differently than their parent’s generation did.

Friends testify at Florida theater shooting hearing
NEW POR RICHEY, Fla. Family and riends o a retired ampa police captain accused o atally shooting a man at a movie theater told a judge Wednesday that the ormer officer is an honorable, even-tempered man who should be released on bail.Curtis Reeves, 71, is charged with second-degree murder in the killing o 43-year-old Chad Oulson. On Wednesday, he ormally entered a plea o not guilty.Police said Reeves became upset when Oulson was texting during the movie previews. Te two men got into a verbal argument and witnesses told officers that Oulson threw popcorn at Reeves, authorities have said.Te eight-hour hearing was supposed to determine whether Judge Pat Siracusa would grant bail or Reeves, who has been in jail since the Jan. 13 shooting. But prosecutors and deense attorneys called so many witnesses — and asked so many questions o those people — that the hearing was continued until Friday.Reeves’ attorney Richard Escobar said his client was deending himsel, but prosecutors said Oulson didn’t hit or touch Reeves. I convicted, Reeves could ace a mandatory minimum sentence o 25 years in prison.Oulson’s wie, who police say was shot in the hand, was in the court Wednesday, but she didn’t speak.Nicole Oulson sobbed as she listened to the testimony o a nurse who was in the theater that day and tried to sae Chad Oulson’s lie.Other witnesses or the prosecution included people in the theater that day: a ormer Marine, an off-duty sheriff’s deputy, and a retired clandestine case officer or the Air Force.All three witnesses described the events o that afernoon, in  varying detail and with varying discrepancies.All agreed on one thing: Te shooting was unexpected, and quick.
