niversary of September 11.
The memorial was hosted
by the Interfaith Center and

If each of us recognizes
we can play a part, we will
honor the spirit [of those who
died], he said. We honor
those who have sufered with
compassion, kindness, and
courage. He said the goal
is to bring people together
with education, not terror.
Students who atended
the event mingled before the
memorial began and shared
their memories from the day
of the atack as well as the days
following. With most being
only in elementary school, the
9/11 terrorist atacks lef an
enormous impact on the lives
of many Sufolk students.
I was young, in elementa-
ry school. I just remember dur-
ing class the phone kept ring-
ing to the point where it was
distracting the teacher, and
kids were being called out of
class, explained sophomore
Selena Jakupovic. When
I took the bus home from
school that day, my mother
was waiting for me at the bus
stop. My parents prepared
me by explaining and tell-
ing me what happened. They
explained that we had to be
strong and move on. Everyone
wearing fags the following
day to represent unity made
me proud, said Jakupovic.
I remember my teacher
telling the class during social
studies, said junior Karen
Ladany. Once I went home
afer the school day I realized
how many people were afect-
ed. Everything changed for me
once I actually met people that
were severely efected by the
terrorist atack, said Ladany.
Reverend Fisher said she
was in Donahues Interfaith
Center writing a paper on
the scroll of Ester when the
telephone rang that Tuesday
morning with the news that
the Twin Towers had been at-
tacked. I then came down
to the fourth foor of the Do-
nahue building where ev-
eryone was gathered in com-
munity, she said.
Following an a cappella
musical interlude, Scot Za-
latoris of the College Re-
publicans spoke, making a
point toward the efect the at-
tacks had on our community.

Hit law school faster with
the "Three-Three" program
If there was a way to
graduate with a Bachelor of
Arts or a Bachelor of Science
on top of geting a Juris Doc-
tor at Sufolk Law School in
six years instead of seven,
would it be worth it? Say
hello to the Three-Three
program, a University op-
tion that will shave a full
year from a students journey
to and through law school.
This is a mechanism for
students commited to going
to law school, said Gail Ellis,
the dean of admissions at Suf-
folk Law School. What it does
is it allows students to com-
plete their undergrad studies
in three years. Students then
go straight to Sufolk Law af-
ter their junior year, said Ellis.
The program, which
has been around for quite
some time, according to El-
lis, is a difcult one, requir-
ing students to retain a 3.4
GPA or higher throughout
their undergrad studies.
They also must complete all
the requirements of their un-
dergraduate degree before
they can start working on
their law degree, said Ellis.
There arent that many
people who do it, said El-
lis, who was been at the law
school for 20 years, Its a
very demanding proposition
and it requires students to
maintain a very high GPA.
Although the path is
difcult and not for every-
one, Ellis urges those in-
terested in a future in law.
I would encourage stu-
dents who want to pursue a
legal occupation. They should
investigate the program if
theyre interested, she said.
The Three-Three pro-
gram is not major specifc.
Anyone at Sufolk may ap-
ply, but they should be
working with a pre-law ad-
visor to help develop the
necessary skills for law
school, according to Ellis.
Students who are look-
ing into the program must
enter the university as a
freshmen and must com-
plete 96 semester hours to-
ward the bachelors degree
they are pursuing, according
to the University website.
This credit must include
all required courses for the
particular degree and ma-
jor that the student selects,
with the exception that the
frst full year of law study is
substituted for major courses
and electives that are nor-
mally taken in the senior
year, continued the release.
A student must also take
the Law School Admission
Test (LSAT) and meet Suf-
folk Laws median, which
tends to change each year. If
interested, students should
contact the law school to in-
quire the median as well
as let the department chair
know of their intention by the
end of their sophomore year.
Although accelerated and
intense, the Three-Three
program saves participants
a full year, both in time and
tuition. If students feel they
can handle the heat, theyre
encouraged to go for it.
The pre-law advising
at Sufolk has recently been
re-vamped as well, accord-
ing to Ellis. It is specifcally
designed to help guide stu-
dents for the three years that
they are working on their
undergraduate studies. The
advisors will help craf a
plan for specifc courses that
students should take to bet-
ter prepare themselves for
their law studies, she said.
We welcome [students]
to come visit the law school
to schedule and talk about
the application process,
how it works and what we
expect, said Ellis. They
can even sit in on classes as
long as its pre-arranged.

This fall, Sufolk Universi-
ty was able to celebrate a new
success as its Modern Theatre
residence hall received an
LEED Silver Rating as a cred-
it to its ecologically sound
structure and maintenance.
LEED (Leadership in En-
ergy and Environmental De-
sign) works in afliation with
the U.S. Green Building Coun-
cil to promote improvements
made towards more environ-
mentally sustainable facilities.
Throughout the pro-
cess of designing and con-
structing [the Modern The-
atre residence building],
Sufolk worked with its
partners to incorporate sus-
tainable building practices,
said Erica Matison, Suf-
folk Universitys campus
sustainability coordinator.
Located in Bostons theater
district on Washington Street,
the Modern Theatre building
includes a student residence
hall, theater and a gallery.
Matison said some of
the buildings recent im-
provements include en-
hanced energy and water
efciency, material reuse
and high indoor air quality.
The building features
Lauren Spencer

Modern Theatre receives LEED certification
several environmental ele-
ments that were considered
by LEED when present-
ing the Silver designation;
among them was a restored
historic faade of the origi-
nal Modern Theatre, which
was formerly a movie house.
The building also now
features a refective white
roof, constructed to lessen the
need for air conditioning dur-
ing the years warmer months.
Occupancy sensors were add-
ed to the buildings dormitory
rooms, programmed to turn
of lights, as well as the heat-
ing and cooling systems when
students are not in the rooms.
Another highlight is
the buildings urban loca-
tion which is convenient to
public transportation, as
well as on-site bicycle stor-
age to facilitate access to
alternative transportation.
Water efciency was an-
other remarkable element
considered by the LEED, and
was achieved through low-
fow plumbing. The buildings
energy efciency resulted in
cost savings of 20 percent.
We worked with our
team to ensure recycling
for more than 75 percent
of all waste generated dur-
ing demolition and con-
struction, Matison said.
Throughout the construc-
tion process while making the
renovations, more than 81per-
cent of the waste generated in
the production was divert-
ed from recycled products.
Matison added that resi-
dents of the building are able
to contribute to the buildings
sustainability by helping to
minimize the environmen-
tal impact of the building.
They do so by reducing waste
and by taking advantage
of the convenient recycling
bins located on each foor.
While the buildings resi-
dents are able to do their part,
lots of maintenance is done
behind the scenes as well, in
order to uphold an environ-
mentally friendly operation.
The buildings cleaning com-
pany contributes to healthy
indoor air quality by engaging
in green cleaning practices.
Also highly involved in
the Modern Theatre proj-
ect were Gordon King, the
senior director of facilities
planning and management,
project architect Adrian Leb-
ufe, and Green Building
Consultant Colleen Soden.
As Matison and the re-
mainder of the commitee are
excited to have earned such an
award, the acknowledgments

The post ofce located
in the Massachusets State
House has recently come in
danger of being shut down.
The location serves many en-
tities besides the State House
including Sufolk students,
the McCormack Building, lo-
cal businesses, and the sur-
rounding neighborhood.
The State House location is
just one of many possible
locations that are in dan-
ger of being closed as the
United States Postal Serivce
continues to downsize.
The demise of the State
House post ofce would cre-
ate considerable convenience
issues as the next closest one
is at least a half mile away.
News of the closing has set of
an unfavorable reaction as lo-
cal residents have petitioned
their Congressman to keep
the location open. And the
news is not siting well with
one Sufolk student. Danny
Nucci, a Sufolk senior ma-
joring in American History,
was not very pleased with the
situation. Where am I go-
ing to buy my stamps? This
creates a giant hassle also if
I have to send out anything,
say for instance, a book that
I have sold on Amazon.
Most of the post ofces
being shut down in Massa-
chusets are located in ur-
ban areas. 3,653 local ofces,
branches and stations were
studied by the postal service.
43 of those ofces were locat-
ed in Massachusets. Of the
43, fve locations in Boston
were designated for a possible
shut down. The locations in
Boston on the chopping block
include ofces in Dorchester
neighborhoods of Uphams
Corner and Grove Hall, MITs
branch in Cambridge, and lo-
cations at Boston College and
Tufs University. The poten-
tial closing of the ofce in the
State House comes because
of the expense of having a lo-
cation for just one building.
In a prepared statement
dated July of this year Post-
master General Patrick Do-
nahoe explained why so
many locations are being
closed. Today, more than 35
percent of the Postal Services
retail revenue comes from ex-
panded access locations such
as drug stores, ofce supply
stores, retail chains, self-ser-
vice kiosks, ATMS and usps.
com, open 24/7. Our custom-
ers habits have made it clear
that they no longer require a
physical post ofce to conduct
most of their postal business.
Many of the locations will
be replaced by Village Post
ofces where postal services
will be ofered in local stores,
libraries and government of-
fces. Donahue went on to ex-
plain in his statement that the
impact these new locations
will have. By working with
third-party retailers, were
creating easier, more con-
venient access to our prod-
ucts and services when and
where customers want them.
The Village Post Ofce will
ofer another way for us to
meet our customers needs.
It is not guaranteed that
if a post ofce comes under
review that it will be immedi-
ately shut down. In January,
the USPS announced it was
reviewing 1,400 ofces to be
closed. Of those, 280 were shut
down and 200 remained open.
When an ofce is selected for
review, the people served
by that ofce have 60 days
to fle their comments. If the
ofce is closed, the decision
will be able to be appealed
to the independent Postal
Regulatory Commission.
Most of the sales within
the post ofce with the sell-
ing of stamps, which of-
cials say can easily be trans-
ferred to the new Village
Post Ofces. But that still
does not quell everyones
concerns, including Nucci.
Like I said, where am I go-
ing to buy my stamps now?

Charlie discounts students
ings that apply to various
businesses around Boston,
catering to categories rang-
ing from dining and enter-
tainment to shopping and
museums. Dicks Last Resort
and the Boston Aquarium
are among popular places;
valuable deals include free
yoga class at Kundalini Yoga
Boston, fve dollars of of
Huntington Theatre Co. tick-
ets and 10 percent of at Ben
and Jerrys. In order to get
the discounts, one can simply
present a Charlie Card at a
participating establishment.
However, with the large
amount of businesses listed,
it can be hard to keep track
of all of the discounts of-
fered. This is where Vidappe,
a way of tracking down and
receiving discounts, comes
in handy. Vidappe is an app

ters to not just the Charlie
Card, but over 100 programs
nationwide. These include,
but are not limited to credit
cards, food organizations,
radio stations, entertainment
companies, sports organi-
zations, and city discounts.
Its actually prety im-
pressive; you download the
app and subscribe to what-
ever one applies to you,
said Vidappe creator Star Li.
The app also ofers a pro-
gram for college and univer-
sity discounts to anyone with
a Student ID (at participating
schools). Its a very conve-
nient tool, there are so many
schools in the app, said Li.
According to the website,
there are three steps to sav-
ing: subscribe to a program,
receive real-time push notif-
cation alerts, and watch your
savings grow. Once regis-
tered for a free account on the
website, users may subscribe
to programs. There is even
has an option to flter the pro-
grams by zip code to see which
ones apply to a local area.
As well, users of the iPhone
and Android can down-
load their free app, which
will send alerts once physi-
cally close to the local busi-
nesses that ofer discounts.
The Sufolk University
Peer Education Resource (SU-
PER) has created a fun and
educational challenge pro-
gram for all Sufolks students.
Stemming from a conference
SUPER representatives Bridg-
et Byrne and Jessica Paulin
atended in Connecticut last
spring, SPICES is making its
way to Sufolks campus. The
title of the challenge stands
for social, physical, intellec-
tual, cultural, environmen-
tal, and spiritual, all areas of
health and living in which the
SUPERs feel college students
should be educated. Not only
will SPICES be an instructive
activity, but it will have some-
thing for everyone, includ-
ing prizes at its conclusion.
SPICES will be an ongo-
ing challenge for the next six
weeks, with an activity every
Friday night, starting Sep-
tember 16, at 10 West on the
second foor. Each week links
with a leter of the acronym,
and will collaborate with
other Sufolk departments,
in order to educate students
in an enjoyable manner. That
being said, the frst challenge,
social, is pour for your
peers, where students will
be allowed to pour alcohol
for their friends to discover
the truth about serving sizes.
The next week will be the
physical challenge, working
with the athletic department,
which includes a beer goggle
race, not only to see the ef-
fects of excessive alcohol use,
but also to display what at-
tending practice drunk would
be like for those who play on
a Sufolk sports team. A con-
dom race will show students
that using protection is chal-
lenging when under the in-
fuence. The third week of
the SPICES challenge, will
host an intellectual competi-
tion focused on Sufolk trivia,
proving a great opportunity
for students, especially fresh-
man, to test their knowledge
of the campus resources. At
the cultural contest, partici-
pants can assess their skills
with the schools diversity
services. During the environ-
mental challenge, students
will be a part of a taste test,
to see if they can tell the dif-
ference between botled wa-
ter and Sufolks eco-friendly
water. The fnal challenge,
spiritual, will be a race to
match the holy days from all
of the students religions to
their dates on the calendar.
The SUPERs would like
to see as many students as
possible atending the chal-
lenges, where they plan to
have large groups competing
against one another. Every
time a student completes and
does well in the challenges,
tickets will be awarded to put
towards the silent auction.
Other appeals to the
SPICES activities include a
free luncheon at the auction
to students who were award-
ed tickets. Also, during the
events there will be free give-
aways of small prizes and
chances to sign up for other
activities put on by the ofces
collaborating with SPICES.
The challenges will be a great
way to socialize with other
students and to test each oth-
ers familiarity with wellness
in a competitive environment.
We wanted to bring out
weaknesses or strengths,
said SUPERS representa-
tive Jess Paulin, who, with
her team, has put a large
investment of work into
planning these events.
Oh yeah, youre drunk
on fun, said freshman Nick
Haddad in regards to par-
ticipating in the beer goggle
race. Mathew Vessella, also
a freshman, said he would
consider joining in on the
condom competition, as it
sounds like a lot of fun,
and it could be hilarious.

Sufolk University has
unleashed the Student Suc-
cess Program, a new program
debuted this year for unde-
clared frst year students.
A project developed by the
Student Afairs Ofce and ap-
proved by Acting President
and Provost Barry Brown, the
Student Success Program has
been designed with student
retention and success in mind,
atempting to take a diferent
approach to these two criti-
cal aspects of the university.
Associate Dean of Stu-
dents Richard DeCapua de-
scribes this program to be
more organic than other
programs designed for stu-
dent retention, as it takes a
diferent approach to helping
frst year students who have
come in undecided. Rather
than taking the common ap-
proach of seeing which class-
es they enjoy the most during
their frst few semesters and
going from there, the Student
Success Program will begin
students with the explora-
tion of various career op-
Suffolk's new approach
to declaring majors
tions and diferent programs
within the college. They will
work closely with advisors
from Career Services and
other departments with the
intention that majors and mi-
nors will fall into place once
clear interests are established.
This years pilot group
consists of 40 students from a
wide variety of backgrounds:
diferent hometowns, gen-
ders, ethnicities, and inter-
ests. Some are residents, some
are commuters, and some are
student athletes. They have
been divided into four groups
of ten students each, and
through this program they
will be exposed to the many
groups and services this uni-
versity has to ofer with the
hope being that, through this
exposure to such diferent
things and diferent people,
they will be able to determine
their own paths at Sufolk.
DeCapua said that the
goal to get the students all
over the place within the col-
lege, but to still provide them
with an anchor of the program
and one another. All four
groups will be atending the
Temple Street Fair this month.

the event we have learned
what weve lost and gathered,
unity, purpose, looking in the
face of evil. We will not forget
those who were lost, he said.
Reverend Fisher had at-
Although this is the pro-
grams pilot year, explained
the ideal results hoped to
achieve with this frst group
are to keep them at Sufolk
and help them develop a
strong sense of direction for
their sophomore years, and
to help them gain the tools
that they need to be success-
ful at Sufolk early on so as
to not get lost in later years.
This year is going to
dictate how we do things in
the future, DeCapua said,
explaining that the program
will be intensive but not too
overbearing. He hopes that
prospective students who
are not yet sure of what they
want to study will be able to
see that a program like this
exists at Sufolk University,
and that they will take ad-
vantage of it in future years.
If we can craf programs
that are continuous, we can
get students comfortable
enough to ask for help. A lot
of frst year students who
reach out for help are com-
fortable enough to ask for
help. The ones who dont are
the ones who really need it.

place at the Univer-
sitys other Maine location,
the Friedman Field Sta-
tion in Washington County,
which has served the Uni-
versity for over 30 years .
The very fact that
we have this new prop-
erty makes it even easier to
make use of the R.S. Fried-
man Field Station, said
Dr. Walter Johnson, chair-
man of the physics depart-
ment and physics professor.
According to Johnson,
who believes the R.S. Fried-
man Field Station has been
a terrifc asset to the Physics
Department, the new prop-
erty will be advantageous
because of its more conve-
nient location. While the R.S.
Friedman Field Station is 335
miles away, one would only
need to travel up route 95 to
86-acre donation to serve for scientific research
visit the new property, and
the ocean site is along the way.
According to the state-
ment, the location is perfect
for wind, solar, water, and
geothermal energy research.
Dr. Johnson hopes that an
observatory will be put on the
property for both astrophysi-
cists and all who wish to visit.
When we add this prop-
erty to our already thriv-
ing coastal science facility
in Maine, we are now in a
position to ofer our commu-
nity the best of both worlds,
said Kenneth Greenberg,
dean of the Universitys col-
lege of arts and sciences, in
the statement released by the
University. Everything that
a great urban institution can
provide supplemented by a
rich rural environment for
special programs in the sci-
ences, the humanities, the
social sciences and the arts.
However, given the prop-
erty's size, it will provide
countless other opportunities
extending beyond scientifc
research, said the Univer-
sity. The space could also
prove to be a resource for
retreats, workshops, semi-
nars, and summer
programs in a va-
riety of other areas
of study, including
the fne arts, hu-
manities, law, busi-
ness, communica-
tion, and writing.
Its a really
beautiful prop-
erty, said Dr. Carl
L. Merill III, as-
sociate professor
of biology and di-
rector of the R.S.
Friedman Field Sta-
tion. It would be a
wonderful resource for
us to take advantage of.
As an urban institution
serving students of promise,
we must aford our learning
community opportunities
to expand their horizons in
the broadest range of educa-
tional, research and creative
setings, said Sufolks Act-
ing President and Provost,
Barry Brown, in a statement.
We are very grateful for this
gif and the confdence that it
demonstrates in our future.

Last Wednesday, Russia
experienced a blow to their
spirit afer a plane crashed,
killing nearly every member
of the international hockey
team Lokomotiv Yaroslavl.
Founded in 1959, Lo-
komotiv is one of the top

won the Russian Champi-
onship in 1997, 2002 and
2003, and were fnalists in
2008 and 2009, making it to
the third round of the play-
ofs in four straight seasons.
The team was on their
way to a game with the Din-
amo Minsk when the plane
is reported to have failed to
gain height during takeof
and collided into a navigation
pole. The plane then crashed
into a nearby river bank in
what is now being referred
to as one of the worst sport
team plane crashes of all time.
Rene Fasel, president of
the International Ice Hockey
Federation (IIHF) addressed
the accident by saying it
was the darkest day ever for
their profession and they
have withdrawn the team
from the 2011-2012 season.
Experts have said that
the reason for the crash
may have been due to hor-
rendous air trafc safety
records, poor record keep-
ing of the aircrafs, weak
government involvement
and awful business ethics.
The Interstate Aviation
Commitee (IAC) has of-
cially opened an investiga-
tion of the accident to see
what exactly caused it and
what could have prevented it.
As soon as the plane
crashed in Tunoshna, a small
village near the Volga River,
you could see a rather large
piece of the aircraf sub-
merged into the ground.
Some local residents wit-
nessed the crash; they were
scared and horrifed at the
event that had just occurred.
Many of the citizens report-
ed about how the plane ex-
ploded and numerous other
eyewitness accounts speak of
the massive amount of dam-
age the aircraf sustained.
As the news spread over
to Ufa, where the KHL was
celebrating the start of the
season with a rematch of last
years fnal game, KHL presi-
dent Alexander Medvedev
came out to the ice and in-
formed the arena to the trage-
dy that has just occurred. The
reaction was a shared shocked
silence and afer a brief meet-
ing the game was called of.
Russian President Dmi-
try Medvedev came to the
scene and laid down fow-
ers to honor those that had
passed. On Saturday, a me-
morial service was held in
Arena 2000 (the teams home
arena) and the atendance
was around 100,000 in which
Russian Prime Minister Vlad-
imir Putin was in atendance.
The teams coach was
Canadian Brian McCrim-
mon, who recently took
over the position of head
coach in May. He played in
the NHL from 1979 to 1997
where he was a member of
the Boston Bruins for the
frst few years of his career.
Lokomotiv lost in the
2010 KHL Western Confer-
ence Finals 43 to HC MVD,
and lost in the 2011 KHL
Western Conference Fi-
nals 42 to Atlant Moscow.
On Sep. 3, the team won
their last game, at home,
52 against Torpedo. Alex-
ander Galimov scored the
last goal of that game, seal-
ing the win for Lokomo-
tiv with an empty net goal.
On Sep. 12 the only sur-
viror of the crash, Alexander
Galimov, passed away due to
severe burns throughout his
body. These tragic events mark
a dark time in sporting histo-
ry, for Russia and the world.

Civil war in Libya reaches closure

Rebel forces have taken over the Libyan capital of
Tripoli and have forced Muammar el-Qaddaf to
fee. While small skirmishes remain, the majority of
the confict has come to an end.

The news has recently
erupted with headlines sur-
rounding the current revo-
lution in Libya. While many
people are keen to brush it
of as just another Middle
Eastern revolution, the cri-
sis this African nation has
faced marks this confict as
one of the most powerful
and symbolic examples of
social upheaval in history.
Over the past 40 years,
Muammar el-Qaddaf has
held a dictatorial rule over
Libya. Coming into power
over a bloodless revolu-
tion in 1969 that abolished
the previous monarchy. He
has maintained a militaris-
tic autocracy over the coun-
try ever since. Nonetheless,
the recent revolutions in the
Middle East and North Afri-
ca, most notably Egypt, have
lead the people of Libya to
take a stand against the over-
powering regime and drive
the dictator out of power.
Unfortunately, there are
notable exceptions between
the Egyptian revolution
in February and the pres-
ent confict in Libya. While
the Egyptian populace was
able to usurp the ruling of
President Hosni Mubarak in
a relatively peaceful move-
ment, Qaddaf has said he is
not going down without a
fght. Even small demonstra-
tions ended with military in-
volvement and several Liby-
an citizens have escaped for
asylum outside the country.
The violent actions of
Qaddaf lead a small resis-
tance group to form and at-
tempt to fght back. Needless
to say, they were out gunned
by a large margin and nearly
routed out of the country.
In late May, the UN Se-
curity Council sanctioned
military action against Col.
Qaddaf leading American
and European troops into
the fghting. The war quickly
shifed momentum as NATO
bombings forced the Qaddaf
loyalists back into the Libyan
capital of Tripoli. On Aug. 21
the rebels fnally broke into
the capital
and within
2 days took
control over
what once
stood as
Q a d d a f i s
st ronghol d.
Q a -
ddafs whereabouts re-
main unknown, but it is
clear that his hold over the
land has come to an end.
As the rebels begin
the reconstruction pro-
cess, the world watches
as pieces of this mans se-
cretive life come to light.
This year has been his-
toric for many reasons, and
the historic revolutions in
the Middle East and Africa
are perfect examples of that.
"...the crisis this African nation has
faced marks this conflict as one of the
most powerful and symbolic examples
of social upheaval in history.".

VATICAN CITYThe sex scandals that have marred
the Roman Catholic Church have encountered a new road-
block with a New York based human rights group. Ac-
cording to BBC World News, The Center for Constitutional
Rights (CCR) is calling for the International Criminal Court
to investigate Pope Benedict XVI and three of his senior car-
dinals on charges of human rights violations and crimes
against humanity. The group has amassed 20,000 pages of
crimes commited by the church against children and adults.
The Vatican is calling the claim a misuse of global judicial
practice. The fnal word on whether the court will take on
the case will come from ICC head Luis Moreno Ocampo.
CARACAS, VenezuelaA date has been set for the 2012
presidential election in Venezuela. Oct. 7, 2012 will see cur-
rent President Hugo Chavez batle both a debilitating cancer
and the stif opposition from the Table of Democratic Unity,
reports BBC World News. The lefist leader has ruled Ven-
ezuela since 1999 and has openly decried the United States
in the past. He said he hopes to run for two more terms,
which would leave him in power until 2025. The leading
candidates for the opposing party are governors Henrique
Capriles Radonski and Pablo Perez, who have both spoken
on Chavez poor management of the country and the rising
crime rates. Nonetheless, Chavez remains popular among the
poor, and his promise of a lefist revolution has maintained
him in power of the country without any major lapses in au-
thority. The early election, however, could mark a turning
point for the Chavez reign and lefist politics in the region.
HUALLEN, Taiwan.Two military jets have gone miss-
ing during a training exercise in Huallen, Eastern Taiwan.
Acording to BBC World News the two aircraf were reported
missing 13 minutes afer the exercise began. Locals reported
seeing explosions near the mountains where the aircraf were
said to have disappeared. Troops are now searching the area
for any sign of wreckage. The planes, an RF-5 surveillance
plane and an F-5F trainer, were performing a routine training
mission. Taiwan has been in talks with the United States over
a couple of years to modernize its aging feet. The sale of 66
F16 C/D fghter jets continues to be an issue, with the Chinese
government sending strict warnings not to complete the deal.

Take a step into Caf
Quatro and immerse your-
self in the scents of home-
made pizza sauce and garlic.
The air is permeated with
sounds of Sufolk University
students and business associ-
ates catching up over
pizza or sandwiches
and discussing plans
for the weekend.
Opened in 2005,
Caf Quatro has
quickly become a fa-
vorite hang-out spot
and place to grab a
quick slice of pizza
between classes. With
the addition of a Ram
Account payment op-
tion, it has become al-
most like an addition-
al Sufolk cafeteria. It
should, coincidentaly,
since Evan Butland,
28, owner and opera-
tor of this small slice
of Italy located at 4
Somerset St, is a Suf-
folk alumnus. Food
has always played a
major role in his life.

ing his own restaurant.
The Sufolk communi-
ty constitutes an estimated
60 to 65 percent of Quat-
tros business. Three of his
six workers are current Suf-
folk students. Since the res-
taurants opening, a second
pizza oven was added to the
kitchen, and Butland proud-
ly admited that they could
use a third or even fourth
oven to keep up with the in-
creasing number of orders.

Afer waking up, he
leaves his home in Revere
and, as ofen as needed, he
heads to The Depot, a whole-
sale warehouse in Chelsea.
There he picks up non-food
items like paper and clean-
ing products. Butland then
goes straight to Caf Quatro.
My ideal start time is
7 or 7:30, Butland says,
all the bread is delivered
by the time I get here. We
get fresh bread every day.
Upon arriving at the res-
taurant, the very frst thing
Butland does is turn on the
cofee maker; he drinks cof-
fee throughout the day.
Afer his frst cup, he
starts the prep work. He be-
gins making all of the home-
made food Quatro ofers
to its customers. He makes
the meatballs, tomato sauce,
chicken cutlets, cannoli cream,
tiramisu, and much more.
We basically build the
whole menu before opening
[the restaurant], Butland says.
Outside companies
are constantly deliver-
ing products throughout
the day. Butland receives
them, checks their qual-
ity, and puts them away.
At about 8:30
a.m., calls start com-
ing in for catering orders.
By 9:30 or 10 Im usu-
ally done with prep stuf,
says Butland. I let the
other guys know whats
going on for the day and
start working on orders.
The restaurant opens at
10 a.m. At opening, the ov-
ens are turned up and take
about 45 minutes to reach
550 degrees, the proper
cooking temperature for
pizza. Prep work is usu-
ally completed around 10:30.
At this time, Butland and
his workers start proofng
the pizza dough. They heat it
and stretch it so it is easier to
work with. Slices of pizza are
ready to be served by 11 a.m.
11 to 12 is prety calm.
Afer that, its prety much
mayhem, Butland says. His
time is spent puting out or-
ders and answering the in-
cessantly ringing phone.
During lunch, from 12
to 2 p.m., Butland estimates
that Quatro serves about
250 customers in a restaurant
that only seats 16. The seem-
ingly endless line of custom-
ers slows down between
2:30 and 3 p.m. If he is lucky,
Butland can then eat lunch.
Before the customers start
pouring in again around 4
p.m., he restarts stocking and
prep work for the dinner rush.
Usually afer 5 I focus
on pizza, but I bounce around
wherever Im need-
ed, Butland says.
His duties include
answering phone
calls and serving
customers, as well
as cleaning, cook-
ing and everything
else that happens
behind the scenes.
Butland orders
his meats, cheeses,
breads, and all per-
ishables before 5 p.m.
However, since the
restaurant is open
until 9 p.m., the or-
dering is a guessing
game. He ofen has to
estimate how much
business he will have
between 5 and 9 p.m.
Afer the doors
are closed, Butland
and his workers break
down and clean ev-
erything. He sends in his
produce order right before he
l e a ve s .
Butland
straight-
ens out
his ca-

the day, and leaves.
He gets out at 10:30 p.m.,
drives home, and starts the
whole routine over again
at 5:30 the next morning.
With an estimated one
hundred and ffy pizzas
sold per day, and a grow-
ing popularity, Caf Quat-
tro is sure to leave its mark
on the taste buds of all Bos-
tonians in the near future.

Last Friday, the YES.OUI.
SI. space, a multi-sensory gal-
lery located
just of the
Avenue of
the Arts,
hosted the
opening of
artist Zach
L a n o u e s
solo show
W r o n g
Cl ot hi ng.
Along with
the usual
snacks and
r e f r e s h -
ments seen

the convert-

level apart-

f e a t u r e d
L a n o u e s
p h o t o -
graphs and
pa i nt i ngs
hung on ex-
posed brick
walls, a
few sculp-
tures, and
even installation artwork
located in the bathroom.
Lanoues subjects consist
of human fgures distorted
by the strange clothing they
wear. The
image of a
girl, who
appears to
have arms
c o m i n g
out of her
hips and
feet from
her wrists
is just one
example of
the shows
curious art-
work. All
of the pieces
follow the same basic formu-
la: a fgure, centered on the
medium, is tangled in a mess
of the wrong clothes. Decked
out in eccentric paterns of
stripes and strange shapes
of mismatched colors, the
clothes in the artwork are al-
most as confusing as the posi-
tions of the fgures they cover.
The pieces range from
black and white realistic pho-
tographs to funky-colored,
imaginative enamel on glass
pieces, to organic forms
of ink-on-wood. The pho-
tographs convey a darker
sense of entrapment in the
clothes, as if wearing the
wrong clothes is suppressive.
The colorful enamel and ink
works on the other hand, por-
traying the clothes as toys to
be played around withas
if wearing the wrong clothes
is a game or fun experiment.
Along with the more tra-
ditional hanging pieces, there
is also a cofee table made from
one of the glass pieces. The
bathroom, not to be excluded,
features some artwork such
as a lampshade made from a
dress and
underwear
strewn on
the walls,
me d i c i n e
c a b i n e t
and sink.
Lanoue
is a New

tive and a

Oh no theyre back. They look even more wack than
last year. Oh god, and theyre making dumb mistakes again,
drinking in the street, screaming at 3 in the morning, throwing
things at people from cars. I guess its time to go back into hiding.
Well, that was an awesome Summer for Bostons rock
scene. Now, as the leaves turn warm colors, the Earth is cool-
ing down. As we all know, except for those freshmen who
just arrived to New England, this means that the next few
months will be spent indoors. Its just too damn cold some-
times, really. Anyways, since weve stopped printing in June,
there has been a lot
going on around
here. First of, Bos-
tons musicians and
the like put togeth-
er some great festi-
vals this summer.
In Allston,
D.I.Y. Fest brought
the community to-
gether in Ringer Park, behind the Jackson-Mann School to
watch great acts such as The New Highway Hymnal and
Doomstar! rip up the atmosphere with ratling rifs. On the
other side of the city, the Needy Visions as well as the Chris
North Dream Quartet released waves of sound through-
out the JP Music Fest. Across the river, at the Cambridge
YMCA, Weirdstalk 3 (with the name changed to We Are
Guest Talk Free) brought noise-crunching spazz-masters
Hunnie Bunnies to a theater-seting, which was no less
crazy than the small tight-knit shows they usually excel at.
Bands such as Pajama People, Dirty Virgins, Saralee,
Skimask, and Mighty Tiny are all appearing on bills more
frequently throughout the city. Mighty Tiny joins tons of lo-
cal bands, including ska-excite the Brunt of It at this Sat-
urdays MassCann Freedom Rally on the Common. While
last year ONYX slammed rhymes throughout the crowd,
this year may prove to be just as big, if not bigger, than that.
This summer saw locals Fat History Month churning out
a 7 inch and a full length LP named Fucking Despair which
blew minds. The guitar-drum duo uses intricate mathy-flls,
rifs and tones while using negative spaces and lefover
soundwaves as integral parts of their music. With poppy-
short melodies mixed in with long, epic rock compositions,
the album does not disappoint, at all. It is the best album of
the summer as far
as New England
rock is concerned.
Since releasing
the album, Fat
History Month
has gone on two
c r o s s - c o u n t r y
tours. First they
took a road trip
with Phillys Ugh, God, who also released an awesome
full-length album this year. Then, once they returned and
amazed show-goers with a few extremely polished perfor-
mances, they lef again -- back on the road with Australias
Kitchens Floor. Now, upon their return later this month, the
boys will be touting their latest pressing, the 7-Inch Gorilla
produced by the independent label Sweaters and Pearls.
The summer months included way more than
just these acts, and the fall will just boost the num-
ber of new bands and venues in the city. What else will
come of the autumn season? Youll just have to fnd out.

Sufolk University is pas-
sionate about the performing
arts, and it shows. Groups
such as Rampage, Seriously
Bent, and the
Ramifications
impressed the
audience at
the Perform-
ing Arts Sam-
pling in the C.
Walsh Theatre
last Thursday.
H o s t e d
by Seriously
Bent, the show
opened with
members of
the show choir,
R a m p a g e ,
singing Good
Morning Bal-
timore from
the musical Hairspray. Next, a
two-person alternative band
played two self-composed
songs, showing that you
dont have to join a group at
Sufolkyou can create your
own! Then Seriously Bent
performed, stealing the show
with their hilarious improv
acts featuring, among other
things, talking horses, an in-
cestuous father, and a dis-
turbing bathroom conversa-
tion. The Ramifcations ended
the night with three spectacu-
lar a capella songs that lef
the audience eager for more.
At the reception afer the
performance, Ryan Breslin, a
junior in his third year with
the Ramifcations, told the
Journal that he enjoys the
group because they work
well together. Breslin urges
the amount of people looking
to audition to have a positive
atitude and be themselves.
Amanda Sousa, a sopho-
more in her second year with
Seriously Bent, the award-
wi n n i n g
c o m e d y
t r o u p e ,
s p o k e
about her
time on
the team.
I just
love being
with the
people in
the group,
Sousa said.
One of
the things I
remember
being told
is: dont
n e g a t e ,
Sousa said about the im-
portance of keeping mind.
There are many other
groups in the performing arts
program. Reycine Thomas, a
sophomore, is a member of
both the Voices of Zion, Suf-
folks gospel choir, and the
Step Team. I like singing
in the choir because we can
reach out to diferent people
through music, Thomas
said, adding, We want any-
one who loves to sing, even if
you just sing in the shower.
She also enjoys being a mem-
ber of the Step Team. Its
uplifingit helps me get
out my stress, said Thomas.
She advised people to come
to the audition with high
energy. Dont be nervous.
Those groups arent all
that Sufolk has to ofer. If you
like dancing, there is a hip-
hop dance crew called Wick-
ed, the Sufolk Dance Compa-
ny, and an Indian dance group
called Bhangra. For those of
you who play instruments or
sing, there is a jazz ensemble
as well as a contemporary
music group called Rhythm.
For those who enjoy perform-
ing arts but would rather do
behind-the-scenes work, a te-
chies union meets frequently.
Signups and information
sheets for these groups are
available in the Performing
Arts Ofce, located in D409.

This is going to be a spe-
cial year for Sufolk Universi-
tys Theatre Department. Last
Thursday, the department
had their annual town hall
meeting, where they wel-
comed freshmen interested
in joining the department, as
well as returning students.
The frst big announce-
ment of the meeting, which
Director Marilyn Plotkins
announced with great glee,
was that this fall, the Theatre
Department would be doing
a bit of Shake-
speare. To help
with that, Al-
lynn Burrows,
the Director
of the Actors
Shakespeare
Project, and
David Gam-
mons, the Di-
rector of the Theatre Program
at Concord Academy will be
working within the produc-
tions. The Theatre Depart-
ment is very happy to have
both extremely accomplished
directors on their team.
This year, the 24 Hour
Play Festival will be return-
ing. For this event, six stu-
dents get together, each of
whom will have a diferent
role, and have 24-hours to
write, practice, perfect, and
fnally, act out their plays.
Students at Sufolk have
set a new school record this
year, with the most amounts
of plays writen by students
being produced for this sea-
son. Four of these plays will
be premier-
ing this fall,
with another
four pre-
miering in
the spring.
The Theatre
Department
actively en-
courages all
of their students to write, with
Director Plotkins saying that
they aim to create an atmo-
sphere where people think,
Hey, I can do that too! It
works, as six out of nine stu-
dent actors at Sufolk writ-
ing their own plays as well.
The four student writen
plays that will be premier-
ing this fall are: Under Covers,
writen by Ryan OConnor
and directed by Isaiah Ro-
tondi-Gray; The Secret of Mr.
Montgomery, writen by Aris-
sara Chounchiasit; Boy Meets
Girl, writen by Conor Samp-
son and directed by Linday
Brissete; and Sitcom, writen
by Alec Lawless. Bryan Pytka,
whose frst play will be pre-
miering this spring, said that
writing plays is a great op-
portunity with the Theatre
Department because you
get to delve into the play more
and get into characters heads
because you created them.
Showing at Sufolk Uni-
versitys Modern Theatre
this fall will be Mortal Terror,
a play about William Shake-
speare that will run Septem-
ber 15-October 2. On October
15, Robert Hampsons MAIN
will be at the theatre, a proj-
ect featuring a wide range of
diferent sounds and music.
From November 17 to No-
vember 20, Doctor Faustus will
be showing, a play in which
a man makes a dangerous
deal with the devil for power.
November 29 sees the return
of famenco group Casa Pa-
tas, along with famous jazz
trumpeter Arturo Sandoval.
Three conversations will
also be held at the Modern
this year. On September 23,

PAO st ar t s of f Seri ousl y
Dor Crperie is the
newest restaurant to oc-
cupy the small building to
the right of the Tremont
Street side of OneBeacon,
close to the Sufolk campus.
Ofering a wide variety
of breakfast, lunch and des-
sert crepes,
Dor Cr-
perie, un-
like most
crepe res-
t a u r a n t s ,
strays away
from the
usual fruit
or dessert-
like fllings,
r e pl a c i ng
them with
innovative
c o mb i n a -
tions that
create a fll-
ing meal for
b r e a k f a s t
or lunch.
Along with
their vari-
ous crepes,
Dor also
ofers fro-
zen yogurt shakes with choice
of Nutella, Nutella with ba-
nanas or strawberries, or a
simple chocolate, vanilla or
twist shake. Their crepes are
made to order; if youre not
a fan of blue cheese on your
crepe, you can always re-
quest your cheese of choice.
It may be hard to believe
that a crepe, typically from
experience, is never truly
flling. However, the lunch
crepes will make you a believ-
er in the idea of a flling crepe.
The pesto crepe has pesto,
walnuts, spinach (or not if
you dont care
for leafy greens,)
blue cheese, or
goat cheese,
and optional
grilled chicken
for an extra dol-
lar. All of these
ingredients are
inside of a light
and faky crepe.
For dessert or
evening snack,
there is a des-
sert crepe op-
tion with a mix-
ture of Nutella
and fruits. An
Elvis crepe,
which is flled
with peanut
buter, bananas,
and bacon, is
also available.
As always,
you can substi-
tute any ingre-
dients if you
think the bacon
bits are a bit extreme.
With friendly servers,
Dor sets a premium ex-
ample of good customer
service. Willing to answer
any questions you may have
about their menu, the Dor
staf is approachable and
quick in creating your crepe.
The pop-up restaurant
has limited seating and will
be only open until Decem-
ber of this year. Similar to
other restaurants that have
popped up in the same loca-
tion and suddenly vanished,
the restaurants creation is
solely to establish a new store
front, and create
jobs. If success-
ful enough, they
could hopefully
relocate to a per-
manent location,
continuing to
serve workers,
students, and
tourists with de-
licious crepes in
the Boston area.
Dor also en-
hances their cus-
tomers experi-
ence by ofering
classes on how
to make crepes,
with registration
through e-mail
or in-person.
The student that
cooks the most
unique and de-
lectable at the
end of class has a
crepe named afer
them for a week.
For Sufolk
students, the Dor is con-
veniently placed right of
of Tremont Street at 1 Bea-
con St. and proudly accepts
the Sufolk R.A.M. card.

Gi vi ng a Crepe
It is about time that Hol-
lywood has fnally come
around to the small town
of Bomont for a revival of
the original 1984 Kevin
Bacon dance classic, Foot-
loose (Paramount Pictures.)
Cast as the rebel dancer
from up north, character Ren
MacCormack, is newbie Ken-
ny Wormald, who is coming
from an acting background of
strictly dancing in other flms,
takes on Bacons lead role and
provides absolutely nothing.
Watching him horrendously
butcher a Boston accent isnt
even the beginning of it. As
Wormald gallops and speeds
across the screen in his rags of
a VW Buggy, he is painful to
watch as he encounters other
characters Ariel, played by
Julianne Hough, and the Rev-
erend Moore, played by Den-
nis Quaid. But, in all fairness,
its not only Kennys fault
that the whole cast comes to
shame as they look like walls
conversing with each other,
spiting out lines that they
had seemingly just memo-
rized minutes before shoot-
ing, with still faces that look
as though they are crying
of boredom under the skin.
For those who do not
know the plot of Footloose,
it honestly isnt anything to
memorable anyway. Nev-
ertheless, heres a brief run-
down. A dance happens
where kids drive home in-
toxicated, get into a car crash
and die. As a result, the town
council deems public danc-
ing under the age of 18 ille-
gal. Three years later, afer
his mother passes, new boy
MacCormack enters the town
of Bomont, Georgia to live
with his uncle. He is instant-
ly shocked as to how many
laws are in place to limit the
kids and keep the town safe.
Ren is soon pulled over
by the police for playing mu-
sic in his car too loudly. The
sherif reassures Ren that
This aint Boston and is-
sues him a fne. Outraged,
Ren begins, get this, ille-
gally dancing with groups
of kids, and falling for a girl
he cant have, who just hap-
pens to be Reverend Moores
daughter. He leaves town for
some legal dancing at a bar,
where a Texas square dance
turns into what looks close
to a porno; and he of course
goes for the overall goal of
making dancing legal again.
So now you kind of
have an idea of what you
are geting yourself into
while seeing the movie.
Now, for what you are
actually going to see when
purchasing your movie ticket,
the dancing. I was completely
shocked, there was next to
no dancing at all in the mov-
ie. For a movie thats about
an hour-and-thirty-minutes
long, theres maybe ten min-
utes of dance scenes. The best
part is that the dancing isnt
even very impressive. Most
of the moves that are choreo-
graphed look like ones that
you could see from top danc-
ers at your high school prom,
which is still cool to watch but
youre paying to see profes-
sional choreographed danc-
ing. The dancing in the flm
is also very sensual and it
seems as though the chore-
ographer thought he or she
could get away with having
two atractive people grind-
ing each other instead of ac-
tually dancing. And this is a
major down fall of the movie.
This movie has very litle
going for it. There is one good
scene where a friend of Ren,
Willard, played by Miles Tell-
er, is taught to dance. It is one
shining moment in the movie
where the poor writing actu-
ally made the audience laugh
for an extended period of time.
Otherwise, the movie is
full of pointless scenes which
add absolutely nothing to the
overall plot or themes of the
flm. The movie could truth-
fully be about thirty to forty
minutes long and reach its
ending point with no con-
fusion, and maybe a cou-
ple more satisfed viewers
So, as you can see, Foot-
loose is a crash and burn.
Put on your Sunday shoes
And pray that you will never, ever, have to see 'Footloose'

Let t er f rom t he Edi tor
President Barack Obama
fnally gave his jobs speech
last Thursday night and
while his address was as neat
and polished as you would
expect from a politician who
is up for reelection, it ofered
a much needed and prom-
ising message of change.
In his address, Obama
presented a bill that would
make more jobs for teach-
ers, construction workers,
veterans, and Americans
who have been unemployed
for a long period of time.
Tax breaks would be pro-
vided for small businesses,
workers, and renovation of
schools and infrastructure.
The bill also promises to cut
government spending and
asks for every American to
pay their fair share of taxes.
Youre right Mr. Presi-
dent, we dont care about
politics, right now. We care
about geting our friends
and families back to work.
We care about geting out of
this fnancial crisis we have
been in since 2008. As ada-
mantly as you asked con-
gress to pass this bill right
away, we are just as adamant
for it to work right away.
I come from a middle
class family, grew up in a
middle class neighborhood,
and went to school with mid-
dle class kids. I saw what the
recession did to many fami-
lies. I can't walk down the
road without seeing signs for
foreclosed homes. I cant turn
on the news without hearing
about more teachers losing
their jobs. And worst of all,
it was too ofen that I heard
of someone losing their job.
Right now is not the time
for a political circus. Obama
stated that there is nothing
controversial about this bill.
But of course the Republicans
were not having it. While the
democrats showered Obama
with applauses and standing
ovations, Republicans pouted
in their seats like children
who had been put in time-out.
Obama, along with all of
America, knows that if Dem-
ocrats and Republicans play
their political games back
and forth nothing is going to
change. During the speech
Obama reiterated that notion
by saying The next election
is 14 months away. And the
people who sent us here
the people who hired us to
work for themthey dont
have the luxury of waiting 14
months. And how right he is.
There are schools in my
hometown of Worcester that
are badly in need of reno-
vation. These schools may
have to be closed down if 14
months go by without any
change, and that is the reality
for too many schools in the
United States. More people
will lose their jobs and more
families will lose their homes
if 14 months go by while poli-
tics go back and forth. The
thick line between Democrats
and Republicans is evident
but this is not the time to
bicker while America and its
citizens lose time. Right now,
American students are losing
out to those in other countries.
Companies are moving their
businesses elsewhere while
other countries are puting
their engineers to work to ad-
vance their own technology.
The Jobs Act, according
to Obama, would not only fx
our economy, it would also
put the United States back on
top. Obama promises that the
Jobs Act will make America
competitive once again. While
its too soon to tell if this bill
will bring the change we are
all looking for, it is a beacon
of hope for all of those who
have goten the short end of
the stick from this fnancial re-
cession. But as with any other
promise from a politician, I
will not be holding my breath.

Hey Congress,
get to work on
that jobs bill!
Dear Readers,
You have in your hands
the frst Sufolk Journal Issue
of the year. Its customary
for the new Editor-in-Chief
to write a leter to the read-
ers for the frst issue, and
I want to promise you the
same quality of writing and
journalistic integrity that
weve provided for decades.
Were not here to just re-
port on the goings-on around
campus, but to challenge the
administration to be forward
with the students and call them
out on it when theyre not.
Its been a long Journey
for me to get to this point. I
started on the Journal as a
freshman and fell in love
with it immediately. Here
I found some of my best
friendsa group of budding
journalist all totally devoted
to informing the commu-
nity in a fair, ethical manner.
I would not be where I am
today without them. Its my
last year on the Journal and I
want to make it count. I want
to use this position to not only
inform the Sufolk Commu-
nity, but to build bridges and
partnerships that will follow
my career afer I graduate.
I have a great source of
inspirationsomeone who
has made her mark in Bos-
ton and has devoted herself
to highlighting everything
Gen Y has to ofer. She
sat at this computer only
two years ago typing up
her "Leter from the Editor."
If you go on boston.com/
tngg, youll fnd some great
articles on the Globes web-
sitearticles that you actu-
ally care about and speak
to you. Never before has a
major newspaper paid col-
lege students and twenty-
somethings to blog about
things that are relevant to an
up-and-coming generation.
This is all possible be-
cause of Alex Pearlman, my
mentor and one of my closest
friends. She is paving the way
for a new kind of Journal-
ism that combines the high
standards of newspapers and
the sassyness of blogging.
I want to follow in her
shoes and do all I can to mo-
tivate people my age to get
out there and do something.
Of course, Ill have the help of
my trusty staf and of course,
another mentor of mine, our
advisor Bruce Buterfeld.
So, Im emploring Suf-
folk students and millennials
everywhere to start taking
charge. This city is full of start-
ups run by people under 30, so
why not try to be one of them?
Thanks for read-
ing and enjoy!

If you missed last Wednes-
days GOP debate, heres your
recap. You might think that a
stone-hearted republican such
as me wouldnt have a whole
lot to say on the debate, but
youd be wrong about that.
Things started calmly
enough. Texas Governor Rick
Perry kicked things of, and
afer a prety good banter dis-
crediting his work in Texas,
he seemed thoroughly out
of touch with reality. I want
to like him, I really do, but
something about that creepy
smile makes it difcult.
To Perrys credit, he
was defnitely the punching
bag of the night and thats
got to be hard. Jon Hunts-
mans frst comment took a
shot at Perry, (and Romney
as well) telling them that in
terms of job creation, any-
thing but number one just
isnt acceptable. It was all
downhill from there for Perry.
Later on, Ron Paul dis-
missed Perrys HPV Vac-
cination legislation as bad
medicine, leading nearly
everyone on stage to take
their turn punching the Tex-
as governors methods. Just
when it was geting painful
to watch, however, Rom-
ney stepped in to defend
his fellow governor saying
that he was sure that [Per-
rys] heart was in the right
place for the HPV debacle.
Perry had a prety good
shining moment near the
end, however. When asked
about the 234 death penal-
ties served in Texas during
his time as governor, he was
stone cold. His response
was that if people kill our
citizens, they deserve to be
executed. This was imme-
diately chased by a wave of
applause from the crowd.
A lot of the candidates at
this debate sort of just fell into
the background for me. Rick
Santorum, for example, while
Im quite sure he stands for
the core values of conserva-
tism, is extremely unmemo-
rable. To be honest, I cant
even remember much of any-
thing he said the whole night.
Newt Gingrich was not a
huge presence either. Aside
from an awesome rant about
everyone on stage standing
together, against the media,
to defeat Obama, he didnt
say anything of real inter-
est. I did notice, however,
a bunch of the other candi-
dates stating their previous
involvement with Gingrich,
which really made it seem
like his time has passed.
Ah, and then theres Her-
man Cain; the man with a
plan. I like this guy a lot. His
problem is that he spent all his
time discussing his plans so
thoroughly, that Im willing to
bet half the people watching
just zoned out when his turn
came around! The botom line
about Cain is this; he clearly
doesnt have the personality
to win. And that bums me
out a litle bit because man,
this guy knows his stuf.
I know everyone hates
Michelle Bachmann but I just
cant get enough of her. If you
put aside her weirdly large
hair and stif smile, I think
shes a cool cat. But this time,
she fell fat. If only her hair
could fall a litle fater as well.
She did, however, do
something that I strongly ad-
mire, in all seriousness. No,
she didnt buy a beter fat-
iron- I wish. When the con-
versation turned to Libya,
everyone praised Obama for
assisting in taking a terrible
man out of power. True. But
Bachmann, when asked why
she didnt support Obamas
eforts to go to Libya in the
frst place, stuck to her guns,
saying that it was never
in Americas best interest.
Ron Paul was at his usual,
scaterbrain-old-man posi-
tion, and prety much fell to
the background as well. Truth-
fully, I really enjoy watching
Ron Paul in any debate. First
of all, he seems to be sure
that the moderators are pur-
posefully ignoring him. He
always says things like now
wait a minute, and you
gota let me respond to that!
Plus, if you listen closely, you
can prety much always hear
him trying to get a word in
between questions. Have
you heard that small excuse
me, or hey now, and won-
dered who it was? It was Paul.
I didnt know a lot about
Huntsman before this de-
bate, but now I know at
least one thing; I certainly
wont be voting for him.
Near the end of the debate,
he talked about his thoughts
on some of the other candi-
dates beliefs, or lack thereof.
He spoke specifcally
about the science of evolu-
tion saying that some of his
candidates question these
facts, as he calls them, and
that it is a turn of to voters.
Considering that nearly
75 percent of Americans con-
sider themselves Christian,
(and that means that they
most likely reject the core of
evolution) including myself,
I think its a prety big turn
of when a candidate re-
fuses to respect the beliefs of
over half the country. Amen.
I found the debate prety
efective overall. The focus
was on the two governors,
Mit Romney and Rick Perry.
Rightfully so, I say. I cant wait
to see who wins it for the GOP,
but as Newt Gingrich said,
were all fghting as a team
to defeat Obama, and Ill rest
easy as long as that happens.

September 11th, 8:46 a.m.
Ten years ago at that exact
time, a skyline, thousands of
lives, and a nation had been
transformed permanently.
Ten years later, it is still some-
thing that haunts thousands
of people and remains a day
that we will never forget.
On that day, I was siting in
Mrs. Carters third grade class
at Hamilton Bicentennial Ele-
mentary school in Cuddeback-
ville, New York. Although no
information was told to the
students, the frantic whispers
between the teachers lef us
with no doubt that something
catastrophic had just occurred.
It wasnt until I arrived
home that afernoon and saw,
on the news, the horrors of
what had happened. I re-
member standing there, dum-
founded, as I watched part
of the city that is practically a
second home to me being de-
stroyed. At eight years old,
I just could not comprehend
why this evil had happened in
a place so close to me or why
this evil had happened at all.
I remember the tears my
mother shed as she watched
the city she grew up in under
atack. I remember the confu-
sion it stirred in my innocent
head. But the thing I remem-
ber most vividly is the daze it
put my country in. For weeks
aferwards, America was in
silent mourning. It was as
though the American spirit
had disappeared completely.
Shopping malls and school
hallways no longer bustled
as they normally do. Instead,
there was an eerie silence that
took over and lingered there.
A decade has passed and
I still remember that silence.
It was a silence so loud and
so melancholic that there
are no words to describe it.
America faced a great loss on
that day. Never will we for-
get the lives that were lost
and the heroes who gave their
lives in order to save others.

Remembering
9/11
The most pressing of what
are now many issues facing
Downtown Crossing is the for-
mer Filene's and the hole lef
behind afer two-thirds of the
Filene's building was demol-
ished. The plan for a gleaming
tower at One Franklin came to
a screaming halt in the souring
economy of 2008, and litle has
changed since then. In that time,
Boston has become a mockery
for city ofcials, planners, and
developers across the country
while the massive hole in the
ground sucks the life right out
of the neighborhood. Without
the pull of any retailers in the
space, and with the push of the
repulsive ruins lef to crum-
ble, businesses are failing and
vacancies are running high.
In what is quickly becom-
ing Downtown Crossing's
darkest hourwith Hayward
Place development continually
delayed and Border's Books
closing for goodTarget at frst
appears to be a white knight
coming in and announcing a
potential new fagship store. Is
Target where we want to set the
bar for future development
of our upscale retail
crossroads? Despite
Mayor Menino's
frm opposi-
tion to Wal-
Mart ever
seting a
foot in
Boston,
he ap-
p e a r s
w e l -
c o m -
ing of
this big
box chain
s t o r e .
Many of
the nearby
retailers are
also supportive
with hopes of Target
bringing in more foot
trafc. We must bear in mind
though, that many of the busi-
nesses could be squeezed out
by Target, which hosts a wide
array of departments flled with
cheap goods. If Target follows
through with this deal, will the
p r i c e y
independent jewelers of the
Jewelers Building be able to se-
cure trafc from those looking
for a cheap piece from China?
Just as troubling about
these plans is the complete lack
of any plans at all for the gap-
ing hole in the ground.
Target would move
into the original
Filene's, the
one-third of
the building
lef behind
afer de-
mol i ti on.
However,
the hole
w o u l d
remain a
scar for
an untold
amount of
time until
a new devel-
oper can buy
it of Vornado.
Mayor Menino's
position on the state
of the Filene's site is per-
haps best summed up with a
direct quote, "People say to me:
'Oh, youve got a hole there (in
Downtown Crossing)' so
what!" But this hole has been

lowering Downtown Crossing
to the point where crime is spik-
ing and police are always keep-
ing watch over the area. Even
the Corner Mall is required to
have its own security afer a
number of incidents. Target
is unlikely to change these is-
sues, either, and the draw of
cheap goods may even exacer-
bate the issue. But the mayor
does not care for the quality
of Downtown Crossing, "Im
bent on geting a development
down there whatever it is."
In this crucial time, we
must be doing what we can to
atract exactly the right kind of
store for Downtown Crossing.
What we have seen here is a
complete lack of coordination
and efort by both Vornado and
the city. It is time for Menino to
stop playing games and pull-
ing at strings Either work with
Vornado or get serious and do
something about the state of
the project. Part of the Boston
Redevelopment Authorities job
should be to get information
out to exactly the kind of stores
we want to see downtown.

Team standings
Jordan fined 100K for comments
Charlote Bobcats owner Michael Jordan was fned $100,000
by the NBA for public comments regarding the lockout and
Milwaukee Bucks center Andrew Bogut. In an August 19th
interview with the Australian newspaper The Herald Sun, Jor-
dan spoke about the need for revenue sharing and mentioned
Bogut specifcally. Jordan said that We [the Bobcats] need a lot
of revenue sharing to keep this business afoat. We have stars
like Bogut who are entitled to certain type of demands. But for
us to be proftable in small markets, we have to be able to win
ballgames and build a beter basketball team. Jordans com-
ments violated the league's policy that bars team owners and
employees from discussing the lockout or any players during
the work stoppage. Under the rules, anyone making any com-
ments violating those guidelines can be fned up to $1 million.
Only player to survive plane crash dies
Alexander Galimov, a member of the Lokomotiv Yaro-
slavl hockey team who initially survived the tragic plane
crash, has died from his injuries. Galimov, who was the only
member of the team to survive the initial impact of the Sep-
tember 7th crash, sufered burns to over 90% of his body and
was placed into a medically induced coma. He died on Sep-
tember 12, afer his heart stopped and doctors were unable
to resuscitate him. Afer his death, there is only one survi-
vor from the crash, fight engineer Alexander Sizov. Sizov has
been transferred from the intensive care unit to a regular hos-
pital room, and doctors say his life is no longer in danger.
William's outburst costs her match
Samantha Stosur upset Serena Williams in the U.S.
Open fnal, capturing her frst ever major title in a lopsided
6-2, 6-3 win. The match will likely be remembered for not
only Williams losing, but for her mini tirade during the
second game. Afer hiting a forehand back to Stosur, Wil-
liams yelled come on! as Stosur reached for the return. The
chair umpire ruled that Williams hindered Stosurs ability
to complete the point and awarded it to her. Williams pro-
ceeded to berate the umpire, delaying the start of the next
game. The 13-time major winner was the overwhelming fa-
vorite to capture the championship, but let that incident get
the best of her and was overwhelmed the rest of the match.
Williams, who earned 1.4 million at the tournament, was
fned $2000 for breaking the violation code for verbal abuse.
Newton impressive in NFL debut
No. 1 pick Cam Newton had an impressive NFL debut,
completing 24 of 37 passes for 422 yards in the Carolina Pan-
thers 28-21 season-opening loss to the Arizona Cardinals.
Newton passed for two touchdowns to Steve Smith (8 recep-
tions, 178 yards), and rushed for a third one, but it wasnt
enough as the Cardinals scored the go-ahead touchdown on
an 89 yard punt return by Patrick Peterson, which proved to be
the game-winner. Newtons 422 yards are the NFL record for
a rookie in their debut. Kevin Kolb was 18 of 27 for 309 yards
with two TDs in his frst game as the Cardinals quarterback.

It would be an under-
statement to say that the
Boston Red Sox 2011 season
up until this point has been
a roller coaster ride. A team
that everyone thought would
represent the American
League in the World Series
come this October dropped
its frst six games of the sea-
son before posting a win in
their home opener versus the
evil empire. But the Sox did
start to fnd their form afer
recording a less than stel-
lar record of 11-15 in April.
Throughout the months
of May, June, and July, the Red
Sox started to look like the
team that sports writers and
analysts predicted to be dom-
inant. As the weather warmed
up, so did the Sox bats.
Emerging on top of all the
explosive hiting displays per-
formed on any given night,
Adrian Gonzalez showed us
that he has arrived as adver-
tised. The American League
MVP candidate is hiting for
average, power, and driving
in runs on a frequent basis.
If the season were to end
today, Gonzalez would cap-
ture the frst of possibly many
AL bating titles, posting the
highest bating average in all
of the majors at a .340 clip.
Patrolling center feld,
possibly the biggest sur-
prise of the season, Jacoby
Ellsbury has emerged as an
AL MVP candidate as well.
Many people speculated
the production that Ellsbury
would deliver this season
given the 2010 season ended
moments afer crashing into
220 lb. Dominican Adrian
Beltre(just a week into the
season), which would frac-
ture the 27-year-old's ribs.
In 2011, Ellsbury has be-
come one the premiere cen-
ter felders in all of baseball.
Not only is Ellsbury post-
ing a line of .317, 25, and 90
(average, home runs, RBI),
but he has also stolen 36
bases and scored 103 runs.
Ellsbury is also a heavy
favorite to take home his frst
gold glove award. The Or-
egon St. product has posted
6 assists, and has not com-
mited an error this sea-
son in 348 total chances.
Overall, Red Sox Nation
has been pleased with the
production out of their tan-
dem switch hiting catchers.
Saltalamacchia, who has
done the brunt of the work
behind the plate, got of to
a slow start, but has been
geting progressively bet-
ter, especially at the plate,
throughout the season.
The 6'4 235 lb. Florida
native is hiting .248, with
16 home runs and 51 RBI.
When the longest name
in the majors isnt behind
the dish, the 39 year old cap-
tain is grinding out his last
few season lef in the Majors.
Varitek has goten
most of his inning when
either Josh Becket or Jon
Lester is on the mound.
Number 33 has started
58 games in the catchers
box this year and although
his numbers at the plate
arent anything to get ex-
cited about, Varitek has qui-
etly hit for double digits in
home runs with 11 and has
driven in 33 teammates.
The guys that Salty and
Tek are behind the plate for
have had a season of posi-
tive and negative results.
Right from the start, Dia-
suke Matsusaka continued to
be injury plagued and inefec-
tive. Matsusaka has been tak-
en of the 40 man roster, and
has proven to be a liability
since his rookie season in 2007.
Probably the biggest blow
to the Sox rotation this year
has been the major absence
of the number three starter in
the rotation, Clay Buchholz.
Buchholz has only start-
ed 14 games this season, be-
fore going onto the disabled
list in the middle of June.
The Texas native suf-
fered from a stress fracture
in his back and it is unlikely
if he will be able to perform
in the postseason if needed.
Josh Becket, Jon Les-
ter, and John Lackey have
been consistently healthy
for the team this season.
Becket is tops among Red
Sox starters in innings pitched
(173), hits allowed (125), and
ERA (2.49). It is likely that if
the Sox make the post sea-
son, Becket will be the one
taking the hill in Game 1.
Jon Lester at times has
shown the nation his domi-
nant form that we have all
seen, making him one of the
most intimidating lef handed
pitchers in the majors. This
season he sometimes may
have called upon an alter ego
that is a not so dominant and
sometimes wild south paw.
Lester does lead the team in
strikeouts (169) and wins (15).
John Lackey has been a
disaster all season. Sloted
into the number three posi-
tion in the rotation because
of injury, Lackey as an astro-
nomical ERA of 6.30, almost
two full points higher than his
previous highest ERA season.
One bright light for
Sox pitching this year has
come from the bullpen and
the revival of the crazi-
est closer in the Majors be-
ing Jonathan Papelbon.
Papelbon has convert-
ed 29 of 30 save opportu-
nities and has a 2.65 ERA.
Pap is back to his strike-
out ways, by siting down
75 hiters in 57.2 innings.
This seasons
bullpen, granted,
has been beter
than ones in the
past (see 03' bull-
pen by commitee).
Alfredo Aceves has
been the Red Sox
go-to long inning
reliever and has ft
nicely into the mix.
With Ells-
bury stealing the
show in center,
the corner outfeld
position seems
even worse than
they actually are.
Carl Crawford
has been almost
extinct this season.
Hiting at the botom of the or-
der and posting a career low
in almost every hiting cate-
gory, makes the fans and ana-
lysts wonder if he can play in
a big market city like Boston.
J.D. Drew has continued
to be useless to the team. An-
other injury plagued season
has given the likes of Darnell
McDonald and Josh Reddick
opportunities to perform.
Dustin Pedroia is the
MVP talks again. The "muddy
chicken" has been the spark
plug to this team and contin-
ues to bring that larger than
life personality to the club.
Down the stretch of the
season heading into the fnal
weeks of the season, the lo-
cal 9 has put themselves in a
sticky situation, starting of
the month of September 2-9.
If the Red Sox want to
hold on and make a post-
season run, they are go-
ing to need to get the bats
going and stay healthy.
With only a 3.5 game
lead over the Rays(who they
start a 4-game series at Fen-
way with the 15th) it is vital
to this group to grind out
these last couple of weeks
and start to make some noise
going into the postseason.

In a tumultuous ofsea-
son for the NFL, the Patriots
came out of the lockout with
big moves in mind. The frst
major acquisition for the team
came with a trade for Albert
Haynesworth, the much ma-
ligned defensive lineman
from the Washington Red-
skins. To follow that up, the
Patriots traded for famboy-
ant and ofen loony wide
receiver Chad Ochocinco
from the Cincinnati Bengals.
Finishing up a busy ofsea-
son the team signed veteran
defensive end Andre Carter
and outbid their main AFC
East rival in the Jets for the
services of Shaun Ellis. With
all of these moves, it is easy
to see why a lot of the cover-
age on the team was based on
how the new pieces would ft
in. But on Monday night we
were all reminded of who
really makes this team go.
Tom Brady turned in the
ffh greatest passing perfor-
mance of all time against the
Miami Dolphins and broke
the Patriots franchise passing
record going 32 for 48 with
517 yards and four touch-
downs. It was Maddenesque
to say the least. And it truly
was just one more reminder
that we are currently watch-
ing greatness. For a quarter-
back that has accomplished
everything that can possibly
be imagined, both on and of
the feld, Brady added onto his
legacy by becoming only the
11th quarterback in NFL his-
tory to throw for at least 500
yards. As Steve Young put it
so eloquently during the post-
game coverage, It was like
stealing candy from a baby.
Bradys otherworldly
night can be atributed to an
overall outstanding perfor-
mance from the entire ofense
as a whole. Rookie ofensive
tackle Nate Solder shined
shuting down Miamis Cam-
eron Wake, one of the premier
pass rushers in the NFL, as
part of a stellar efort from the
ofensive line. The line held
up throughout the night de-
spite starting new additions
including Solder and veteran
Brian Waters and sufering
the loss of center Dan Koppen
to a broken ankle. Second year
tight ends Rob Gronkowski
and Aaron Hernandez con-
tinued to be versatile and
productive pieces within the
ofense, both catching touch-
downs. Deion Branch showed
of his solid connection with
Tom Brady by catching 7
balls for 93 yards. And Wes
Welker looks to be back to
his old self catching 8 balls
for 160 yards, capping of the
night with a 99 yard touch-
down reception which was
thrown on a line from Brady.
It would be easy to pan-
ic about the defense as they
gave up close to 500 yards to
an overall underwhelming
Miami ofense. But as with
any Bill Belichick team, the
defense is always a process in
the making. (The same Patri-
ots team that lost to Bufalo
31-0 in 2003 in the frst game
of the season is the same team
that beat Bufalo 31-0 in the
last game of the season) This
is not to say that there are
no concerns on that side of
the ball. But the way this de-
fense will be playing in No-
vember and December will
be vastly diferent than what
we saw on Monday night.
So going back to Tom
Brady, it is easy to not appre-
ciate what Patriots fans enjoy
on a weekly basis from one
of the premier passers in the
history of the game since Pats
Nation has been spoiled for
almost a decade. What Mon-
day night served as was just
another reminder that we are
witnessing one of the great-
est athletes the city of Boston
has ever seen. Brady is of-
cially in the elite class. And
when you talk Boston elite
you must specify for there
are the folk heroes like Tedy
Bruschi, John Havlicek, John-
ny Pesky and Phil Esposito.
But then there is the class that


Football is back, the lock-
out is lifed, and it is time
for the season to get under-
way. With too many stories
to count, it is going to be a
chaotic year. Let me catch you
up with what you need to be
aware of around the league
The Green Bay Packers
will be back and fully healthy
coming of their Super Bowl
victory. Tom Brady has a new
weapon in Chad Ochocinco,
and will have Nate Solder to
protect him. Cam Newton
will start for the Carolina Pan-
thers, but can he handle it?
This brings up more
questions surrounding this
crazy NFL season. Will Pey-
ton Manning see the feld af-
ter geting more surgery on
his neck? Will a team tank
in the standings on purpose
to get high-praised Stan-
ford quarterback Andrew
Luck? Can a team in the NFC
West fnish beter than 8-8?
All around the league
you will see games that are
either blowouts, dominated
by ofense, or dominated by
defense. Reason being, the
lockout has shaken up all
of the rosters across the Na-
tional Football League. In the
preseason, most teams looked
very unsteady, but once the
season gets started, we should
have some great games on
hand later in the year. Do not
judge teams in the opening
week, because a team that gets
blown out might become the
Super Bowl XLVI champion.
For player predictions,
Tom Brady will have a down
year, but still lead in most
statistical categories. Josh
Freeman's young Bucca-
neer ofense will be one of
the best, moving him up in
the ranks for quarterbacks.
The Ray Lewis era will
come to an end, and De-
triot's Ndamukong Suh will
rise as the dominant de-
fensive fgure in the NFL.
For team predictions,
the Colts will miss the play-
ofs. Seatle will win less
than 7 games. The Jets will
not win the division, but
land a wildcard spot. The
Texans will make the play-
ofs for the frst time ever.
My Super Bowl predic-
tion is New England and
Green Bay will play the
frst ever overtime in Su-
per Bowl history. The Pa-
triots will win in walk-of
fashion, winning 41-35.
This of-season has
been one of the most event-
ful in history, so hopeful-
ly we get the same out of
the 2011 football season .

defnes Boston sports. Names
like Ted Williams, Bobby Orr,
Larry Bird and Bill Russell
always come to mind. And
Brady now is ofcially in that
class. As for his record seting
performance Brady comment-
ed afer the game that there
were still areas that needed
to be improved upon. Scary.


Brady continues to prove he is one of the elite
NFL preview and predictions
Last season, the Suf-
folk Rams broke expecta-
tions by qualifying into the
NCAA soccer tournament.
Despite their swif exit, the
school understood what an
accomplishment this was for
the team. This year, both the
mens soccer team and the
school have set higher goals
for themselves and the hope
to up last years performance
is fresh on everybodys minds.
Our goals will remain
high, said head coach An-
drius Zeikus during a brief
meeting with the Jour-
nal. We had a great ex-
perience last year and we
hope to build up on that.
Unfortunately, the sea-
son has goten of to a rocky
start, with the current 1-4
record and a 3 game losing
streak. Nonetheless, Coach
Zeikus keeps his head up.
We need to blend togeth-
er as a team, said Zeikus.
We have a lot of new people
and we are integrating them
into the team on a daily basis.
However, in the short
time since the season started,
there have been a number
of pleasant surprises. The
Rams victory over Newbury
on September 4th came at an
unprecedented 4-0 lead. This
is adding to the outstanding
performances of midfelders
Danny Lloyd and Michael
Missouri, who have each
scored 2 goals so far.
We have a tough lineup
this year said Zeikus, tough-
er than most years. We need to
adapt to every opponent and
change our lineup when we
need to. The beter your oppo-
nent the beter you will play.
Key games of the sea-
son include Emerson on Oct
10 and Tufs on Oct 19. Be
sure to catch the upcom-
ing home games against
Salve Regina on Sep 14
and Mount Ida on the 21.

Just fve months afer
graduating from Sufolk
University, former starting
Hockey goalie Jef Rose has
signed a professional con-
tract with the Fayeteville
Fireantz of the Southern Pro-
fessional Hockey League.
Post-college life has been
an interesting ride for the
Sufolk alum, spending two
months overseas in France
playing against professional
teams around the country and
now resting up and training
for when he reports to Fayete-
ville for camp on October 5th.
Rose explained that
his time in France was an
enjoyable experience in
which he learned plenty
about the game of hockey.
The style of play over
there is a lot diferent than
here, Rose said of his time
playing on French soil.
Theres a [greater] focus on
the technical skills where
here theres a much more
physical style. Perhaps it
was because we were play-
ing pro teams, but the game
seemed so much faster.
The hockey experience is
not the only thing the former
Ram took away from his Eu-
ropean trip, as he enjoyed the
cultural experience as well.
One of the coolest parts
of the trip was seeing the
sights of France, the Con-
necticut native said. We were
able to see the cathedrals of
Paris and we saw how cham-
pagne was made in Rennes. It
was one of my favorite parts
of the whole experience.
As enjoyable as his time
in Europe was, the goalie
explained that he couldnt
see himself living in France
and came back stateside in
pursuit of making it in the
United States, which lead to
his contract with the Fireantz.
Though he hasnt had
much contact with his new
team since signing, Rose is
very much excited to report
to camp in a litle less than a
month, but not before play-
ing a few games in the AHL
with the Connecticut Whale.
Former Suffolk goalie signs pro hockey contract
From September 25
through October 1, Rose will
be skating with his home-
town AHL team, who is the
minor league afliate of the
NHLs New York Rangers.
With time to refect on
his college life and gear up
for his new endeavors, the
2011 graduate was asked
about his time wearing the
blue and gold for Sufolk.
My favorite moment
during my Sufolk career
would have to be our play-
of game against Wentworth
where we went on the road
and beat them, Rose said.
Being my frst year with the
team, it made me optimistic
about the years to follow.
Those years would be
more challenging than Rose
expected afer his freshmen
year however, with the team
failing to make the Great
Northeast Athletic playofs
the previous three seasons.
Despite the recent woes for
his former team, this goalie
believes that his former team
has a good chance this season.
They have a really good
team right now, Rose said.
Based on the amount of tal-
ent [they have], looking ahead
things look very good. Last
season we had a tough sched-
ule and when you lose to re-
ally good teams it hurts your
confdence, but this season all
those games look winnable.
Rose believes that if the
Rams can get a few early wins,
things will continue in the up-
ward direction for this team.
The Fayeteville Fire-
antz open up their new sea-
son October 21st against
the Louisiana IceGators in a
game Rose hopes to be start-
ing in goal for his new team.

2010 marked one of the
most successful regular sea-
sons in the history of Sufolk
University womens soccer
team and it seems this squad is
shooting even higher this year.
Last season, the Lady
Rams posted a 10-2 Great
Northeast Athletic Confer-
ence record which would
garner a frst place seed in
the playofs. Unfortunate-
ly Sufolk would not take
home the conference crown
afer such an impressive
year, but this squad looks
determined to do so in 2011.
The girls opened the sea-
son against out-of-confer-
ence foe Eastern Nazarene,
in which Leslie Hayden and
Meghan McHale scored their
frst goals of the new sea-
Alex Hall
Journal Staff
son in route to a 2-1 victory.
The second game of
this opening three game
home stand brought the
Daniel Webster Eagles to
the Lady Rams home turf.
This bout would not
prove to be as close as the
frst game of the season, as
Sufolk would score 13 goals
against while shuting out
their New Hampshire op-
ponents. 2010 second-team
all-GNAC forward Hayden
would record her seventh
hat trick in a Rams uniform,
totaling fve on the night.
Not to be outdone,
Freshman Lauren Spen-
cer would post three more
goals on the scoreboard for
her new team, with McHale
and Monica Wolf adding a
pair each for the home team.
Sufolk would then host
the Lyons of Wheaton Col-
lege at home, in what would
turn out to be their frst loss
of the 2011 season. Despite six
shots between Hayden and
McHale alone, the Lady Rams
were only able to record 9
shots total against Lyons
goalkeeper Lindsay Leddy
with none resulting in goals.
Wheaton would sneak
two goals past Sufolk goal-
keeper Melissa Brouillete
who would total 13 saves on
a staggering 15 shots on goal
through her 90 minutes in net.
Regardless of the loss
against the Lyons, the blue
and gold can rest easy that
it was an out-of-conference
game. Sufolk will now turn
their atention to Saint Jo-
sephs who they will play
today at 4 p.m. in Maine.
It will be the Lady
Rams frst game against the
Monks since the 2009 sea-
son, where Sufolk would
tie their conference foes
twice as well as record two
victories in four meetings.
Though its been awhile
since these two teams have
faced one another, the travel-
ing team should feel confdent
about their abilities with a 13-0
victory under their belt along
with the fact Saint Josephs
were unable to defeat them
in four meetings back in 09.
Look for the away team to
get their ofensive playmak-
ers of to a quick start and
obtain an early lead against
their conference foes to-
day. If Hayden, McHale and
Wolf can post performances
similar to the Daniel Web-
ster game, the Lady Rams
should walk out of Maine
with a well earned victory.
