Unique caf gains popularity, expands to new location
Business wasnt booming when
Brad Walters opened his Basil Leaf
Caf in a Phillips 66 gas station of
of West Sixth Street.
It was the dead of winter in
2009, and the country was in
the middle of the recession. Te
weather and the roads were bad;
there was no trafc and no money
to advertise until the Lawrence
Journal-World printed an article
that shook the dust of of the Cafs
fve dining tables.
Tat just blew the roof of of it
Walters said, and weve been busier
and busier ever since,
Walters originally wanted to
be a teacher when
he dove headfrst
into the restaurant
business in college.
I just kind of
fell in love with it
and took naturally
to it, he said.
He worked
through the
kitchens of
r e s t a u r a n t s
in Lawrence,
including Tellers and the Alvamar
Country Club when he realized,
if he wanted business to grow, he
would have to do it for himself. He
always wanted to own a restaurant,
I fgured it was time to just
jump in and see if I could make it
work, Walters said.
Te Phillips 66 kitchen at 3300
W. Sixth St. was cheap and had
already proven itself as a successful
restaurant space it is the previous
home of Tortas Jalisco and Biemers
It was just a no-brainer
fnancially, Walters said. Tere
wasnt much risk to me if it did go
under and didnt make it that frst
Te success of the Basil Leaf
Caf is propelling it into a much
larger space at 616 W. Ninth St.
In addition to creating a fresh
atmosphere, Walters is getting a
liquor license and expanding the
menu. He hopes the new location is
up and running by mid-July.
Te current location is of-
putting and difcult to fnd.
Teres no towering neon sign that
announces it, and the Caf still relies
on advertising by word of mouth,
but Walters believes that treating
the customer right and giving the
community a tasty product speaks
for itself.
Lawrence has always been good
about that for local restaurants and
local businesses, he
said. [Customers]
tell their friends,
and their friends
tell friends, and
before you know
it, youre huge.
But lack
of traditional
advertising doesnt
mean the Caf isnt
serving up quality
food. Te lasagna
and tortellini cordon bleu are
crowd favorites.
Were not full of stuf frozen in
freezers, Walters said. Everything
is home-cooked and made from
Although the pricing is modest,
the heaping portions of upscale
Italian cuisine served in black
Styrofoam boxes can last a college
student for a few days or can be
perfect for a meal to split.
Its flling, good food at a great
value, he said. And it keeps people
coming back.

poLice RepoRtS
Tere are many artistic endeavors
happening in Lawrence this summer.
One, the Lawrence Outdoor
Downtown Sculpture Exhibition,
will open June 15.
Te exhibition, now in its 25th
year, features eight Lawrence artists
sculptures placed at diferent spots
on Massachusetts Street as well as
some of the public buildings in the
area and the side streets.
Its truly public art that is
encouraging everyone to be able to
enjoy the sculptures, said Diane
Stoddard, assistant city manager.
Anyone who comes downtown is
going to see them. It will really give
local artists the opportunity to be
involved and showcase their talents.
While the sculptures are already
set up, the exhibition opening will
include a reception beginning at
5:30 p.m. with juror Porter Arneill
and some of the artists as well as a
walking tour of the sculptures.
Stoddard said this years exhibition
is particularly special because it is
exclusively for residents of Lawrence
or those who live within 15 miles of
the city.
Stoddard said that in the past, the
exhibition entries were also open to
regional and national artists pieces.
Entry pieces were due at the end of
January, and ofcial selections from
Arneill were announced at the end of
Artist Darin White, who submitted
his piece Tetramonobelos, said he
has meant to submit a piece over
the years and this year, being the
25th year, seemed an especially
appropriate time to submit a piece
for the exhibit.
As an artist, one of the greatest
prospects is to show your work in a
public place, he said. I hope people
interact with the artwork and that
it generates some discussions and
potentially other opportunities to
present work.

Revolutions may not answer civil unrest
s cracking down on the
government all its cracked
up to be?
Conventional liberal perspec-
tives of international politics
hold that violent revolution is the
antidote to oppressive government.
To those who subscribe to this
paradigm, I ask one question. Can
you name one violent revolution
that lead to a democracy? Im sure
your immediate answer was, of
course, the American Revolution.
But upon closer examination, the
result of the American Revolution
was a thinly veiled oligarchy where
blacks, women and those without
property were not given voting
rights. Similar trends are even more
noticeable in the wake of the Arab
Te Arab Spring garnered a great
deal of attention in the last few
years, even leading Time Magazine
to bequeath the Person of the
Year title to Te Protestor in
2011. Indeed, Te Arab Spring has
been overwhelmingly venerated.
But for what reason? Te implicit
assumption is that these once-
despotic nations are better of now
that they are in the hands of the
people. Unfortunately, this is a
cursory judgment.
As many of these ruinous nations
climbed out of the smoldering heap
lef behind by the showers of de-
struction they were not greeted by
the righteous arms of democracy,
but by the iron fst of fundamental-
ist rule.
Not convinced? Lets take the
Egyptian revolution for example.
While they may be free from the
clutches of Mubarak, they are now
entranced by the Muslim Brother-
hood much to the misfortune
of the Coptic Christians. Far from
democratic, the government is rife
with corruption. In fact, the Egypt
Court just ruled that the Muslim
Brotherhoods ascension to the
legislature was illegal, demonstrat-
ing that democracy doesnt come
second nature to violent revolution.
Even Tunisia, arguably the most
moderate nation from the Arab
Spring cohort is slowly succumbing
to the Muslim Brotherhood. Te
assassination of Muslim Brother-
hood Coalition Opposition Leader
Chokri Belaid has proven that vio-
lence is still the rule of law in these
nations, while President Moncef
Marzoukis tepid resistance to these
terror tactics speaks volumes of the
powerlessness of the government.
Why do we see these trends?
Step back a few decades in history
and we have the Iranian theocratic
revolution which deposed the Shah
and installed the Ayatollah (who
went on to earn the prestigious title
of most evil man in history by
Why didnt they create a democ-
racy? Surely everyone in the world
must want democracy. Tomas
Sowell of the Hoover Institution de-
scribes that one of the fundamental
facets of democracy is tolerance:
the willingness to let other people
have freedom, not just want it for
yourself. Tis is what the Middle
East lacks.
So, how do we create peace in
despotic regimes? Te question is,
in itself, a fallacy because democ-
racy simply isnt whats best for
most despotic nations. You may still
think that these nascent govern-
ments will eventually evolve into
democratic societies in the same
manner America did.
But democracy cannot be
bestowed nor cultivated if the
lifeblood of said society, the people,
do not wish it.
So long as their implacable desire
for unadulterated monocultural-
ism persists, Middle Eastern and
Northern African democracy will
be a quixotic pursuit.

Two sides exist between the Turkish protests
urkey is experiencing the
largest protests since the
election of Turkish Prime
Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan 10
years ago.
Te root cause of these protests
was the announcement that a
famous park in Istanbul, Gezi Park,
would be demolished to make way
for a shopping mall. However, this
protest has become about so much
more. Protesters emerged who are
frmly against Prime Minister Erdo-
gan and his party, and the police
have been brought in to quell the
situation. But is Erdogan the fascist
dictator the protesters make him
out to be, or a decent leader?
Tese are questions to ask before
the United States gets involved.
If President Barack Obama an-
nounced that Central Park would
be destroyed in order to construct
a shopping center, it only makes
sense that there would be protests
in New York.
However, would these protests
last for over a week, with protest-
ers braving tear gas for their cause?
Probably not.
Te park demolition was simply
the spark that ignited Turkish
tensions about freedom speech,
and a government that they feel
is too heavy-handed. Perhaps the
Arab Spring has fnally reached
Turkey, where citizens want more
of a say in government and feel as if
Erdogan has taken too much power
for himself. Erdogans response to
protests has not shown the world
that he is a good leader, as he has
dismissed claims of violence against
protests (untrue) and maintained
that the park will be demolished.
However, is this truly a case
where the government needs to
be overthrown? Is Prime Minister
Erdogan bad for his country, or has
he just made a serious misstep?
Unlike many rulers in the Middle
East, Erdogan has been consistently
(and legitimately) elected by popu-
lar opinion. He has gone a long
way to ensure the future success of
Turkey as a nation, and benefted
the majority of the country. Tese
protests also happen to coincide
with a slowing Turkish economy,
which may be why protests have
just recently erupted. While the
violent response to protests cannot
be ignored, and the decision to do
away with Gezi Park was certainly
a mistake, are these reason enough
to depose a long standing Prime
Minister who was just popularly
reelected in 2011?
Whether Prime Minister Erdo-
gan is good or bad for the nation of
Turkey, it can be agreed that these
protests are an important signal to
the world, and cant be ignored. Te
frst step of the Turkish govern-
ment should be to resolve the issue
of Gezi Park, and cease the violent

Even though you nailed the
interview, that one time you came
up short on a credit card bill or paid
rent a day late can prevent you from
landing a job.
Not only are employers looking at
your Facebook page and your Twit-
ter, James Gentry said, theyre also
looking at your credit scores in some
cases and making decisions based
on that.
Gentry, a professor of journalism
who teaches courses in fnancial
literacy and marketing communica-
tions, described the state of fnancial
literacy in the country as woeful,
and theres no sense of urgency for
undergraduate students to become
aware of their credit histories and
scores, even though they have infu-
ence in buying necessities such as
housing, cars and insurance both
now and in the future.
Employers checking credit scores
has become more of a hot button
topic in the past few years, he said.
However, the problem is that
students dont have a long credit his-
tory: if theres one small blemish, it
becomes a big red fag for employers
and lenders.
Seventy-six percent of college
students have credit cards, with the
average credit card debt carried
by undergraduates accumulating
to more than $3,000, according to
statistics from the Federal Reserve,
Join Economic Committee, Sallie
Mae and TransUnion.
In Gentrys senior-level classes,
less than half have credit cards.
Tat means theyre missing a
chance to be developing their credit
history, he said.
One of his students, Brendan Beg-
ley, grew up at a car dealership that
taught him the importance of a high
credit score. Before he graduated last
month, he got a credit card and now
has a clean slate for purchasing a
car or home in the future.
Being responsible with my credit
decisions now will pay dividends
eventually, he said.
At the Money Management Cen-
ter, peer educator Yoonsook Chung
advises that students hold of on get-
ting a credit card until their senior
year, or, if their parents have good
credit history, to get access to their
line of credit earlier.
Te most important component
of a credit score is payment history,
says Chung, and its difcult to
recover from late payments.
Its just plastic for them some-
times, Chung said of young credit
card users. A pair of $100 jeans can
turn into a $200 purchase if the
balance isnt paid on time or soon
To build a good credit history, get
the right kind of credit card, buy
what you already have money for,
dont use more than 35 percent of
the maximum credit limit and pay
more than the minimum as soon as
the bill comes.
Its a challenging enough world
under normal circumstances, Gen-
try said. But if your fnances are all
screwed up, its even worse.

Remember the Boom Boom Cou-
ple? You know, the two who hooked
up at Te Hawk during Halloweekend
of 2012, and then photos of it spread
across the Internet like wildfre? Te
Boom Boom Couple is probably
not the frst twosome to be found in
compromising positions in a college
town. Te culture of hooking up is
everywhere, and it is nothing new.
Its become the norm for college
students because most of them arent
ready for a serious relationship, and
that makes dating in the traditional
sense unnecessary, said Andrea
Lavinthal, co-author of Te Hookup
Between 60 and 80 percent of col-
lege students in North America have
had a hookup experience, according
to Sexual hook-up culture, a 2013
article published by the American
Psychological Association. Laura
Stepp, author of Unhooked: How
Young Women Pursue Sex, Delay
Love and Lose at Both, defnes hook-
ing up as anything from kissing to
Hookups are prevalent on college
campuses, and so are the variety of
options and misinformation about
them. Tey can be fun, but they can
also be hurtful.
Why it Works for
college students
Afer a hookup, 82 percent of
college men and 57 percent of college
women were glad they did it, accord-
ing to Sexual hook-up culture.
Most college students are fguring
out who they are and who they want
to be, Lavinthal said. Its time for
experimentation and exploration, and
that extends to their romantic rela-
tionships. Tey can experience being
with diferent people, which is fun and
exciting. Hooking up is more about
you than it is about the other person.
Youre fguring out what makes you
happy in a partner.
Emma*, a junior from Shawnee,
said she has hooked up with guys
whom she thought were cute and
enjoyed them because of how she felt
while hooking up.
During a hookup, I feel good,
confdent, sexy and wanted, Emma
said. She has hooked up with about
a handful of guys, whom she usually
met at parties.
Hookups can be ideal for students
because they can still focus the major-
ity of their time on studies, and there
is no pressure to settle down. In 2010,
the average woman got married at 27
and the average man at 29, which is up
from 20 for women and 23 for men in
1960, according to Barely Half of U.S.
Adults Are Married A Record Low,
a 2011 article by the Pew Research
Social and Demographic Trends.
Both England and Stepp cited this as
a fundamental infuence in hooking
up as well.
Natalie Scott, a junior from Topeka
said she hooks up because it is excit-
ing, yet does not involve anything too
Its just fun to be attracted to
someone, Scott said. It can be self-
afrming, and I dont have to worry
about a relationship or baggage.
But hookups are ofen fueled by
alcohol. Sixty-four percent of hookups

followed alcohol use, with the average
occurring afer three drinks, accord-
ing to Sexual hook-up culture.
Under the infuence of alcohol, I
may not be interested otherwise or Im
not worried about the consequences,
Scott said.
Why it doesnt
Not everybody is hot for hook-
ups. Afer a hookup, 35 percent of
students felt regretful or disappointed,
11 percent confused and 5 percent
Hannah Whitten-Vile, a junior
from Oakland, Calif., said there has
been a couple of hookups she has
Sometimes I feel gross aferwards
because I wouldnt have done it sober,
or I didnt really want it, but I didnt
say no either, Whitten-Vile said.
Regret can result from feelings of
either using someone or being used
as well.
More men felt sorry because they
felt they used someone while women,
felt regretful because they felt they had
been used, according to Sexual hook-
up culture.
College campuses teem with mis-
conceptions about hookups, including
the prevalence of them.
Students overestimated the number
of sexual partners their peers had,
according to a 2006 study by the
American College Health Association.
Kathleen Bogle, assistant professor of
sociology and criminal justice at La
Salle University and author of Hook-
ing Up: Sex, Dating, and Relation-
ships on Campus, said the pervasive-
ness of hookups varies campus to
campus, including how ofen and
what it involves.
One misconception is that every-
body hooks up or that it just involves
sex, Bogle said. Its defnitely going
on and is common, but there is a
hyped view about it.
Tis glorifed view can create a
need to ft in and do what everyone
else is doing, a feeling Whitten-Vile
has experienced. I used to feel pres-
sure because the whole culture of
hooking up was the way to have fun,
Whitten-Vile said.
Both England and Bogle said hook-
ing up can create a double standard
against women, a principle that
proved true with the Boom Boom
is courtship dead?
No. About 52 percent of college
students are in a relationship, ac-
cording to a survey by the American
College Health Association.
Donna Freitas, author of Te End
of Sex: How Hookup Culture is Leav-
ing a Generation Unhappy, Sexually
Unfulflled, and Confused About
Intimacy, said that students may see
hooking up as their only option, but
many still want romance and to date.
Tere are a huge number of
students who value traditional dating,
Freitas said.
Emma, who has been in a commit-
ted relationship since December, said
she prefers relationships over hook
I have a strong connection with
my boyfriend, and even though were
in a long distance relationship, I would
rather have that any day of the week,
Emma said.
However, if students want to shif
from hooking up to dating and have
not had much experience with court-
ing, they might fnd themselves in
Some students havent developed
relationships skills or know how to
date afer college, Freitas said. If it
is all they know, then they replicate it
out of college.

Summer break provides ample opportunity to catch up on TV
Summer has ofcially started,
meaning that a much needed break
from school and homework is upon
us. What is the best way to fll that
break? Television and lots of
it. With all the choices available,
its hard to fgure out exactly what
fandom to immerse yourself into.
Tats why I am here to help you.
Here are my top three picks for TV
shows to watch this summer.
1. Game of ThroneS
Te newest season, while
moving a bit slowly, has really
been able to focus on the diferent
relationships, and it ended with
two killer episodes. Season three
ended last Sunday, so if you were
somehow able to stay away from
all the spoilers, now is the time to
watch the season (or if you really
have enjoyed living under that rock
and havent watched any of it, its
time to jump on that bandwagon).
It may seem like the obvious choice,
but that is only because it is, in my
opinion, the best television show
currently on the air.
2. arreSTed deVelopmenT
Social media has been abuzz
with the newest addition to the
critically acclaimed series that has
fnally made its return to Netfix.
Te newest season opens with a
scene of a young Lucille Bluth,
played by Kristen Wiig, and a
young George Bluth Sr., played
by Seth Rogen, and honestly, no
show could have started with a
better pair. Te cameos only get
better as the season continues,
and despite what audiences and
critics may be saying about the
show, the chemistry is there, the
writing continues to be hilarious,
and the acting is on a whole new
level. One recommendation: have
realistic expectations; understand
the show has been gone for a while,
so changes had to be made for the
story to make sense.
3. freakS and GeekS
Tis is the End, to be released
Wednesday, follows the story of a
party at James Francos house and
is a sort-of reunion of the 1999
show that was canceled afer one
wonderful season. Te movie is
already shown to have references
to the show (check out the artwork
in Francos house) and many of
the cast members are invited to
Francos party, such as Seth Rogen
(Ken) and Martin Starr (Bill).
Te show is defnitely worth a
watch, but it will slowly become an
obsession, so make sure to take it in
small doses.

doubles as an alarmingly shameless
two-hour infomercial about how
nify it might be to work for Google.
In fact, director Shawn Levys newest
flm may well represent the troubling
future of big screen product place-
ment: a movie where the characters,
plot and setting are little more than
the blunted utensils of a corporate
giant bent on improved brand man-
agement. Afer all, if a company can
be considered a person, why cant it
be a movie star?
When their shifless boss (John
Goodman) declares bankruptcy
to cover his early retirement to
Florida, unemployed designer-watch
salesmen Billy (Vaughn) and Nick
(Wilson) are forced to reenter the job
market with nothing to ofer but their
own motor-mouthed enthusiasm and
a supposedly hilarious lack of famil-
iarity with newfangled doohickeys
like webcams, Harry Potter and the
word online (all of which have been
around since at least the 1990s). A
combination of quick thinking and
dumb luck eventually lands the duo
in Googles summer internship pro-
gram, a mental Hunger Games that
wastes no time in supplying them
with the requisite team of freaks and
geeks to learn from and ultimately
rally behind.
Vaughn and Wilsons Wedding
Crashers chemistry remains largely
intact, even as it rails against the
labored blandness of the flms PG-13
rating. Its their individual shticks
that seem sadly played out at this
point. Wilson, whose surfer-savant
delivery and hangdog mannerisms
have allowed him to essentially play
the same character over and over
again (Te Royal Tenenbaums and
Midnight in Paris being two rare
and wonderful exceptions), looks
visibly exhausted at being asked to
once again summon the aw-shucks
grin when courting an impossibly
attractive workaholic (Rose Byrne).
Vaughn, who co-wrote the
screenplay with Jared Stern, certainly
hasnt done himself any favors by
saddling Billy with a seemingly inex-
haustible supply of 1980s pop culture
analogies. Te frst Flashdance
reference, delivered in the midst of
a team-building exercise disguised
as a real-world Quidditch match, is
admittedly funny. Te others grate
harder than frozen cheese.
Te younger interns, includ-
ing a snarky texting addict (Dylan
OBrien) and a sexually repressed
geek girl (Tiya Sircar), are all one-
note variations of the millennial
stereotype: entitled, tech-savvy and
deeply insecure about themselves and
their future. Aside from all-too-brief
cameos from the likes of Will Ferrell
and Rob Riggle, the one memorable
presence is Josh Brener (Te Big
Bang Teory) as Lyle, the put-upon
team manager who proudly sticks up
for his middle-aged charges.
For better or worse, though, the
real star of Te Internship is Google
itself, who apparently didnt have to
pay 20th Century Fox one red cent
to produce a movie that could easily
be mistaken for a feature-length
advertisement. Company executives
did exercise a degree of creative con-
trol, however, when they reportedly
requested the excision of a scene that
called for the destruction of one of
their experimental self-driving cars.
Teir beautiful Mountain View, Calif.
headquarters is likewise depicted
as a spotless technocratic wonder-
land, combining the fner points of
a college campus, a theme park and
an alien mother ship. I was honestly
amazed when the flms end credits
didnt include a link to the Google
Jobs webpage. Too subtle I guess.

Hot summer months mean
cold summer drinks, and a way for
students to expand their mixology
Tim Hewitt, a senior from
Arkansas City, has perfected his
summer brew, a homemade
drink comprised of lemonade,
beer, citrus vodka and champagne.
Hewitt said he uses two cans
of pink lemonade concentrate,
six light beers, two cups of citrus
vodka and about half a bottle of
sparkling champagne to make his
Hewitt suggests using inexpen-
sive ingredients, such as Andr,
for the summer brew. He said the
taste will basically be the same, so
theres no need to shell out extra
cash. His recipe for summer brew
makes about one gallon, which
he stores in a one-gallon sun tea
With a group of four to five
people, it takes about 45 minutes
to drink, Hewitt said. I try to
make it about once every three
weeks, or for small parties.
John Graves, the general man-
ager of Tonic Bar at 728 Massachu-
setts St. said that once school gets
out, customers tend to order more
drinks associated with summer.
We put out drink specials on
margaritas and Coronas. We tend
to sell a lot of tequila, Graves said.
People like to order drinks with
bright colors like green, blue and

It started in a basement lined
with rocky walls and cement foors.
Four boys were brought together
by a passion for music and a bright
idea to become something great. Te
product was Felix Greene, a now
local psychedelic blues band. Teir
mix of fawless vocals and addicting
rhythms has captured the attention of
many University students, local bar-
goers and trendy Lawrence venues.
With Ryan Nelson on vocals, Matt
Weiman on lead guitar, Sean Cahill
on the drums and Will Scherman on
the bass, Felix Greene has become a
local favorite.
Nelson, lead singer and songwriter
has been pursuing music since the
seventh grade. It took a year of col-
lege football to realize singing was his
true calling.
Teres not a whole lot of artists
who sing from the heart anymore,
Nelson said. Tats what I do. I sing.
But without my band it wouldnt be
Te aspiring band landed their
frst gig at Phoggy Dog last spring,
and have since played at Dempseys,
Jackpot Saloon and the Granada. In
return, they have built a signifcant
fan base in the Lawrence area.
Alex Shaul, a recent University
graduate, has watched the band grow
from day one, and has become one of
their biggest fans.
Tey have a stage presence unlike
any other band Ive seen, Shaul said.
Teyre from a diferent era. Its a
whole genre of its own.

All we do is win
a monumental victory
Womens track and field team claims first national title in Universitys history for any female sport
Te Kansas womens track and
feld team was welcomed at Allen
Fieldhouse yesterday afernoon as
they returned from Eugene, Ore.
with the frst national championship
trophy for the school in womens
track and feld.
Coach Stanley Redwine and
senior Andrea Geubelle thanked
the fans for showing their support,
and the team then raised the trophy
together on James Naismith Court
before walking over to the Wagnon
Student Athlete Center for a press
We knew we had talent across
the board, Redwine said at the press
conference. We knew it would be a
team efort.
Of the 13 women that qualifed to
compete at the national champion-
ship meet, 11 earned points toward
the overall team score.
Te only Jayhawk to win an indi-
vidual title was sophomore Lindsay
Vollmer in the heptathlon, which
came as a surprise to all six of the
Kansas coaches, as well as Vollmer
I never thought I was going to
place that high at a national meet,
Vollmer said. I just wanted to do as
well as I could do for the team.
Vollmer set a personal record
in six of the seven events of the
heptathlon, and set a school record
in the heptathlon as well as the tenth
best score in NCAA championship
history at 6,086 points.
Vollmer said each time she set a
new personal record in one of the
events of the heptathlon it gave her
confdence that carried over to the
next event.
A PR (personal record) impacts
you a lot, Vollmer said. It just
boosts your confdence and raises
you level of performance for the
next event.
Te Kansas victory was so
dominant that, as coach Tom Hays
pointed out at the press conference,
the team would have won the title
with just the 48 points it accumulat-
ed in the frst three days of the four
day competition.
Te Jayhawks scored a total of 60
team points, winning by 16 points
over Texas A&M.
Were talking about a total team
efort, Redwine said to the media.
It started with the coaching staf.
Te athletes did what we asked them
to do, and did a great job. Tey
bought into it because they wanted
to achieve it.
