I Dare to Care' Central Prairie 




Honor Flights Sponsor War Vets 




Kayla Banzet 
Editor-in-Chief 



Just four years ago a program 
named the Honor Flights came 
together to honor and spon- 
sor those who served in World 
War II. The Honor Flights' goal 
is to send as many World War II vet- 
erans to Washington, D.C. as they can 
to visit the memorials that were built 
in memory of them. The brilliant part 
is that the veterans don't pay a dime 
for the trip. 

Honor Flights are based all 
over the United States and each state 
has multiple branches known as 
hubs. The Central Prairie hub is based 
out of Wichita. This group is manned 
with multiple volunteers who help 
raise the money for the vets. 

Leta DeMayo is the Wichita 
Area Sub-Committee Co-chair of 
the Central Prairie branch with her 
husband Tom DeMayo. She became 
involved with the group because of 
her father. 

DeMayo says, " We became 
involved when I started hearing 
KFDI advertising on their station so 
I looked it up on their website and 
became very interested because of 
my dad being a World War II vet. I 
then started searching Facebook and 
learned of the first banquet at the 
Prairie Rose last summer where we 
all went and took my dad. He then 
decided he was interested in going so 
it all happened from there." 

Every World Warll 
veteran is eligible for an Honor Flight 



no matter what their position 
was during the war or if they are 
able to pay. Veterans are chosen 
on a first come first serve basis. 
Every vet's flight is paid for by 
donations and it costs $650 to 
send one veteran. Caring guard- 
ians pay their own way to fly with 
Honor Flight. A guardian can be a 
relative or anyone who wants to 
volunteer. 

'I flew with my parents 



nizations like the American Legion 
and the VFW help contribute to 
the Honor Flight. 

While at the capital the 
veterans are able to see the World 
War II Memorial which is on the 
Washington Mall. 

The Central Prairie group is 
working on sending another flight 
in April. On January 29 they had 
a banquet at Prairie Rose to raise 
funds for Flight 12. World War II 

on Flight ii last September and "They [veterans] truly 

Flight 12 is scheduled for April 

2011," says DeMayo. are walking, talking 

Honor Flights try to 
recruit as many volunteers as pJeCeS Of hiStOTy tOO 

possible. They believe the more 

help the better. soon to be gone" 

Many veterans are in- 

vets spoke and described their ex- 
perience when they served in the 
war. 

"They truly are walking, 
talking pieces of history too soon 
to be gone/' DeMayo says. 

DeMayo is delighted that so 
many people help with the Honor 
Flights and care about the vet- 



capable of walking on their own 
or long distances so a volunteer 
can offer to go and push a wheel- 
chair for a veteran. The Flight also 
works with a bus company while 
the veterans are in Washington 
which is wheelchair equipped. 

As time passes, as do the 
veterans, that is why this organi- 
zation is trying to work quickly to 
raise the money for these honor- 
able people to take flight. 

There are approximately 
1,000 on the waiting list in the 
state of Kansas. The Department 
of Veterans Affairs report there 
may be as many as 12,000 or 
more living in the state. 

"Time is critical because 
as many as 1,200 World War II 
Vets may die daily across the 
country and many of them do not 
know about Honor Flights," says 
DeMayo. 

Honor Flights does not 
recieve national government aid. 
Their funding comes from those 
who want to help veterans see 
their memorial. However, orga- 



erans. Her favorite part is seeing 
how happy the vets are when they 
return home from a flight. 

"At the flight homecomings 
it is very exciting and emotionally 
gratifying to see how much ever- 
body gets involved and how much 
the veterans are so thankful for the 
attention and appreciation," says 
DeMayo. 

Helping these veterans 
make the flight to Washington, D.C. 
is an experience of a lifetime 
for them. It allows them to 
know that they are appreciated 
for their service in the war. 
Although their main efforts are 
for the World War II Veterans, 
Honor Flights is not solely just 
for them. Korean War veterans 
and Vietnam veterans are next on 
the waiting list to go to Washing- 
ton, D.C. and see the memorials 
that were made for them.

Praire Honor Flights and you want

World War II veterans from Flight 11 come together around the American flag in Washington, D.C. 
for the folding of the flag ceremony. 





Happiness, according 
to Webster.com, is 
a state of mind or 
feeling characterized 
by contentment, 
love, satisfaction, pleasure, or joy. 

Even though there is a 
"definition" for happiness, we 
can't characterize or simplify in 
a sentence what truly makes us 
happy. Maybe that's wearing 
your favorite sundress, fixing up 
that old 1967 Ford GTA, or finding 
love. Whatever it may be, happi- 
ness is our right and finding it is 
what life is all about. 

We define happiness in 
our own way and have our own

things that make us happy and 
fulfill our lives. 

"Helping others and play- 
ing with my dog make me happy. 
My dog doesn't judge and his love 
is unconditional," Wichita sopho- 
more Haley Holliday says. 

Many students talked 
about how hanging out with their 
friends made them happy. While 
others talked about activities, 
such as reading or writing, that 
made them happy. It's exciting to 
hear how unique and different 
everyone is and how sometimes, 
helping others makes someone's 
day. 

"I volunteer at a Butler 



unty Fire Department. It's fun, 
challenging and I am learning more 
every day. It's nice to know that 
I can be there to help people on 
one of their worst days," says Lacey 
Prockish. 

Prockish works in customer 
service and enrollment in the 5000 
building in Andover.

The Declaration of In- 
dependence states, "We hold 
these truths to be self-evident, 
that they are endowed by their 
Creator with certain unalien- 
able rights that among these 
are Life, Liberty and the pursuit 
of Happiness." This is where it 
all starts, at the Declaration of 
Independence, the foundation 
on which our country stands. 

From the beginning, we 
acknowledge our right to 
pursue happiness. So, 
what is happiness for 
you? It may be spending 
your Friday evening serv- 
ing at a homeless shelter 
instead of clubbing with 
your buddies, discover- 
ing a new band, or draw- 
ing your surroundings, 
whatever makes you 
happy, get inspired and 
get involved. 

"If we have the 
freedom to express our- 
selves, we should do it 
and not waste any oppor- 
tunity we are given," says 
Valley Center sophomore, 
Matt Crow. 

There are so 
many people in different 
countries that don't have 
that right to pursue what 
makes them happy and 
we are so lucky to be able 
to live in a country where 
we are free to pursue 
happiness. 



"Find something that 
you love and are passionate 
about, whether that is a job or 
a hobby. Care to get involved," 
says Prockish.

'CRU is for everyone. 

Whether you want to have 

some fun, meet some great 

people, sing your heart 

out, learn and grow closer 

to God, or all of the above, 

CRU is the place to be 

-Annamarie Larue 




Jessica Claassen 
Staff Writer 





Campus Crusade for Christ, 
known as CRU by college 
students, is a student 
Christian organization that 
meets on many college campuses 
around the world. CRU is not only 
for students, but students also 
help lead it. Students can help lead 
worship and games. Every Tuesday, 
on the Butler of El Dorado campus, 
students meet to play games, wor- 
ship, learn about God and fellow- 
ship with one another. 

CRU is also involved in 
other ways on campus. At the be- 
ginning of the school year, people 
from CRU came and helped other 
students move in. They also led a 
church service for students the first 
Sunday of the school year. Along 
with meeting weekly, CRU puts on 



events. These events are for the 
entire student body. No one has 
to attend CRU to come to these 
events. This past fall, CRU brought 
MAZE, a professional illusionist. 
MAZE performed illusions in which 
every person in attendance had to 
question their view of reality. At 
the beginning, he warned people 
that what they see may not al- 
ways be true. Different views can 
change things. To end the night, he 
told about his life and how it had 
been dramatically changed when 
he was diagnosed with leukemia. 
Through his story, he was able to 
share the gospel to a huge group 
of people. 

Kristin Khosravipour, Elbing 
freshman, says, "MAZE not only 
brought amazing illusions that

twisted the mind, he brought deep 
questions that really made me 
think." Luke Boyenger, CRU leader, 
reported that 400 people were in 
attendance and over 100 people 
made the decision to follow Christ. 

Another event put on by 
CRU was Fall Getaway. Fall Get- 
away was held in Elmdale at the 
YMCA Camp Wood. Because it was 
at the beginning of the school year, 
there was not much time to recruit 
people to come. This retreat was 
only a weekend long, but students 
received a spiritual refreshment 
that they needed. 

Most recently, many stu- 
dents from Butler attended the 
Denver Christmas Conference 
(DCC). This conference is five days 
long, in downtown Denver, at the 
end of December. This is the high- 
light of many students' Christmas 
break. 

Phil Unruh, Valley Center 
freshman, says, "Great speakers, 



X is an amazing experiei 
that happens over Christmas 
break. This year we got to partici- 
pate in a flashmob in the middle 
of downtown Denver as well 
as sharing our faith with those 
around us that night/' -Jennifer 
Felix 





great friends all come together to 
make a great experience." 

This conference has been 
said to be one of the greatest 
Christian conferences that people 
have attended. The days at the 
conference are spent focusing on 
God. One of the projects at DCC 
was packaging meals to be sent to 
Haiti. 

Jelly Kidd, White City fresh- 
man, says, "DCC was an incredible 
experience. The speakers Brian and 
Scott shared powerful messages 
and it was awesome to see how 
their words affected my friends 
and brought us closer together as 
a group." Students who go to DCC 
are rarely, if ever, disappointed 
with their decision. 

Another event that CRU 
puts on are Bible studies. Every 
semester at least two separate 
Bible studies are started. Students 
can help lead these Bible studies 
and also encourage other students 
to attend them. These are a great 
place for fellowship and encourag- 
ing other people in their walk with 
the Lord. 

CRU can be found on many 
campuses around the world, not 
just in the United States. Students 
have been greatly encouraged by 
this organization.

You finally made it out of 
your parents' house, and 
you are now finally on 
your own, well, kind of. 
The best thing 
about going off to college other 
then the staying out as late as you 
want is you get to move out of 
your parents' house. Then again on 
the negative side of it all, you don't 
get to eat the home cooked meals 
like you used to. 

Yeah, you can eat the

Staff Writer Staff Writer 



cafeteria food, and then when 
that's closed for the day you have 
to improvise. 

And the only cooking 
appliance you have is a microwave, 
because you are stuck in a dorm 
and that's the only thing you can 
have to cook with. 

It wouldn't be such a hassle 
if you had something else to use to 
cook with other then a microwave. 

At least if you had an oven 
to work with then you would have 





a little more leeway. 

Even though you are a 
college student and stuggling for 
money, you don't have to go to 
Wal-Mart or Dillons just to get the 
ingredients. There are other places 
that will work as a substitute 
and sometimes even better. For 
example, Dollar General. 

So if you and your friends 
are bored on a Friday night and 
don't really want to go out, then 
kick back and start cooking.

Facebook comes up with new way of communicating 



Alaina Cohen 
Staff Writer 

Facebook made its debut 
back in February 2004 at 
Harvard University. At the 
time, it was strictly for 
Harvard students. As of 
January 2011, Facebook has more 
than 600 million active users. As it 
continues to grow and expand so 
does our way of communicating. 

According to the New York 
Times, in November 2010, Facebook 
introduced Facebook Messages, a 
new messaging system that allows 
people to communicate with one 
another on the web and on mobile 
phones regardless of whether the 
person uses email, text messages or 
an online chating service. 

The new system will 
prioritize messages received from 
friends and close acquaintances, 
which, in the long run, saves time. 
Even though people will now be 
able to have a facebook.com email 
address, Facebook's news system 
will work will other emails such as 
Gmail, Yahoo and Hotmail. 

At this point in time, the 
new messaging system will not 
include voice chat, but rumor has 
it, according to Mark Zuckerberg, 
creator and CEO, that voice chat 
will be coming soon. But there is 
no date in which to expect it. The 
new system also allows messages 
to be sent right to your phone or 



any other electronic device. Did 
you know that there are more 
than four billion messages sent on 
Facebook each day and most are 
sent between two people? Now 
with the new system messages can 
be sent between multiple people. 

"That's awesome. Not 
only can we use Facebook on the 
computer but now on our phones. 
I have an I Phone so I'm not that 
excited, but for people who don't 
have I Phones, that's pretty cool," 
says Minho Lee, Seoul sophomore. 

Just like regular email, 
Facebook faces many challenges. 
One includes managing spam. The 
company has gotten a bad rep for 
maintaining privacy, which couid 
lead to a drop in the number of 
users and getting people to trust 
the new system. 

"I don't think that the new 
system is a good thing. Yes, it's 
convenient and fast, but on the 
other hand we are totally controlled 
by the social network. We have no 
privacy," says Alice Lin, Taichung 
sophomore. 

In May 2010, Facebook 
came up with a way to help people 
understand what they were sharing 
online and who would see it. 
Although Facebook has conquered 
much of the Internet's social 
networking, one huge mistake the 
company made was failing to notice 
the new privacy control features 



©Butler 
Community College 



became harder and harder for users 
to understand and set their profile 
to. In October of 2010, Facebook 
announced that some of their 
popular games, such as Farmville, 
had shared unwanted information 
about users and their friends. 
Facebook took action quickly to 
prevent the network from sharing 
more unwanted information. 
Many Facebook users still have 
no clue that Facebook Messages 
have launched. So how do we, as 
a "social" generation, not know 
about this new, quicker way of 
communicating? 

"Well, I'm not so sure that 
it's quicker, but it crosses platforms. 
You don't have to text to text, email 
to email or Facebook to Facebook. 
Facebook now allows people to take 
common communication and open 
it up. There is no prejudice/'says Dr. 
Keith West. West is head of radio 
and TV at Butler. 

Facebook will continue to 
advance its form of communication, 
and ultimately rule the social 
networks of the web. 

"I think it could be useful 
to the people that use programs 
such as Facebook to stay in touch 
with people they don't see every 
day, but I also think it's leaning 
towards addiction to Facebook and 
technology in general. I'm not really 
one way or the other. I personally 
will not use it though," says Holli 
Dawson, Wichita sophomore.

A ' most students, the cost of paying for college is the biggest thought in their mind. How are they 
ng tc \py for the expensive tuition? Oh, and also the books? These easily can surpass $1,500 for a full-time 
student. What if there was a way to avoid the high cost of college? There is. 

Butler offers scholarships for almost anything. The different types of "books and tuition" scholarships 
rarB Bom joining a newspaper staff to auditioning for a role in the school play. Choir is also a books and tu- 
rn' cl cholarship and there are four different choirs to choose from. Cheerleading , dance team, along with the 
maPKy of sports all offer scholarships. The possibilities are endless! 

The only thing students have to pay with these scholarships are the fees which usually range from $100 
to $200. Although the scholarship does take up time, and students are required to take classes associated with 
their degree, it can help if the scholarship has to do with the career path they are interested in.

Graduating from high school is a great experience. Stage one of life is done, but stage two is next. Going 
to college might require long drives, which then forces some students to buy a newer car. This process often 
leads to a load of debt on a college student when they already have to pay tuition and books. 

For some students, they are interested in buying a brand new car out of college. Most recommend not 
doing that. Buying a new car should be reserved for when college graduation comes around with the job need- 
ed to afford the car you have always wanted. Instead, buy a cheaper car priced around $5,000 to $8,000. They 
will last all through college and maybe even beyond. Buy an older year car so insurance is cheaper. Avoid two- 
door cars as it can be difficult to pack up dorm room belongings in one. Paying off a smaller car loan is much 
easier than paying off a big car loan. Plus, credit ratings get a nice boost which can help later on in life trying to 
secure a house loan or another car loan. Unsure of where to buy a used car at? Go to any city around and take 
a look at all the used car dealers. There are plenty to choose from. If you want to stay indoors, you can use 
Craigslist or Auto Trader. They both are fantastic for searching for used cars in the comfort of your home. 

nqet a pant-time j#&^^k 
Worried about spending whatever is left in your checking account the first week of college? No worries, 
there is a solution. Get a job! Most college students have doubts about their ability to handle work and school, 
but most find out soon enough that having a job keeps schedules in check and allows for a better way of in- 
come than living off savings. There are lots of places for students to get jobs. Fast food is a most chosen option, 
along with major retailers such as Wal-Mart, Target and Sutherlands. Having a part-time job can help boost 
income. Although many pay minimum wage, it's still money. 

cut yjuvt ce£l phone (dtl in ka&f, 

One of the most expensive parts of college is the cell phone bill. Many students opt for the higher 
priced phones, or phones that require a data plan, which can be very expensive. Students who switch over 
to a cheap plan of just unlimited texting and minutes are often just as happy as students who have the entire 
data package. 

Two cell phone companies, Verizon and Sprint, offer the biggest range in pricing from cheapest to 
most expensive. Verizon was the most expensive, with the Droid 2 costing $200 for the phone, and $99 a 
month for the unlimited data plan, unlimited texting and 450 minutes a month for talk. Sprint was the cheap- 
est with the Kyocera Sanyo Vera, which costs nothing for the phone and a miniscule $50 a month for the un- 
limited texting, 400 minutes a month plan. Although you are without the data plan and Internet on the Sprint 
phone, you have $50 more a month to spend on other needed items for college.

places to be at for spring break 



Kayla Clarke 
Staff Writer 



Pack your suitcase because 
we are "duesing" out of 
this windy state, and head- 
ing somewhere that has 
more to offer, like warm 
weather to lay out and soak up the 
spring sun, crazy beach parties and 
amazing ocean views, oh yes! Ev- 
erything you want in a spring break. 
You could be the kind of person that 
would like something opposite from 
the usual clear ocean beach resort 
experience. 

There is always the other 
option of beautiful snowy moun- 
tains and sitting next to a toasty 
fire, drinking hot cocoa with baby 
marshmallows floating on top, while 
you're curled up comfortably with 
your favorite blanket and just remi- 
niscing about old memories with a 
best friend or a family member, just 
laughing your heads off. Either one of 
these settings will be great for plan- 
ning your fun and relaxing upcoming 
spring break trip. 

If you are not sure or haven't 
even thought about planning for 
spring break, you should think about 



planning now because it's just around 
the corner. 

"I'm just going to stay home 
and chill with my friends," says Nate 
Willikins, Wichita freshman. 

Well, don't worry your little 
heads if you can't think of anywhere 
to go, because we are here to guide 
you. 

Our first destination we will 
look into is the famous IT place, the 
one, the only Cancun. Flocks of col- 
lege students in recent years have 
begun migrating to sunny Cancun, 
Mexico in search of a loose atmo- 
sphere. Cancun offers 25,000 hotel 
rooms and 85 percent are rated at

"I am going to the Bahamas

There are so many activities 
to do. During the day, check out the 
Oasis Hotel with wild beach contests 
and volleyball tournaments. For the 
adventurous people out there you 
could go snorkeling, scuba diving 
or swimming with the dolphins. At

about warm weather and crazy beach 
parties packed with endless things 
to do. Remember in the beginning of 
this guide there was something men- 
tion about beautiful snowy moun- 
tains? Well, the next destination to 
consider spring break in, is Brecken-

life, live concerts, hip restaurants and 
top terrain parks. 

"I'm going skiing with my boy-

At one point in our 
childhood we were 
all asked the question 
of 'What do you want 
to be when you grow 
up?' Some kids wanted to have ex- 



chef and I'm still trying to be one," 
says Pyle. 

Some Butler students 
wanted to pursue astounding jobs 
but realized it wasn't cut out for 
them and they decided to move on 



travagant and adventurous jobs like to other things. 



a race car driver or an astronaut. 
Others were looking for a more 
conventional job like a business 
owner or a firefighter. Then there 
were those who wanted to be a 
doctor one week and president 
of the United States the 
next. 

As children we 
wished hard and dreamed 
big. Through the years 
we learned that some of 
those dreams were hard 
to follow. But some peo- 
ple don't like to give up 
on their dreams. They will 
stop at nothing to achieve 
them. The Grizzly went on 
a search to find those who 
are turning to Butler to 
fulfill those dreams that 
are almost in their grips. 

Patrick Wilson, El 
Dorado freshman, knew what he 
wanted to be as a kid and is taking 
steps to see that dream through. 

"I wanted to be a paleon- 
tologist. Here at Butler I'm major-

College can be an immense 
help for successfully fulfilling your 
childhood career dream. Butler of- 
fers a plethora of classes that can 
tailor to your career dream. Earn- 
ing a degree in your desired career 
choice can help give you a boost to 
earn that dream. 

You may feel like your 
dream is to over the top but you 
still have an interest in it. Asking 
an adviser for guidance in finding 
the right major for that dream of 
yours can be a great start. 
For instance, say you 
wanted to be a famous 
pop star growing up. An 
adviser can help you set 
up classes in the fine arts 
department and you could 
put that singing voice to 
use and become a music 
education teacher. 

Or maybe you 
wanted to work in the 
medical field. Butler has 
a nursing program to aid 
you in that department. 
"I wanted to be a 
nurse," says Alyssa Singh, 
Texas sophomore, "and that's what 
I'm doing here at Butler." 

Even if you have given 
up on your dream as a dinosaur 
hunter or you're still going strong 
on being a veterinarian, our child- 
hood dreams are what shaped our 
minds and imaginations into what 
they are today. 

Always dreamed of being a 
teacher or maybe a cop? Whatever 
you dreamt of being, visit Butler's 
advising office and let them lend a 
hand to starting that career dream.

The Center, located on the El Dorado campus, 
provides services available to faculty, staff and 
students. Services include but are not limited to 
photocopying, faxing, scanning, packaging, making 
transparencies and processing both USPS and campus 
incoming and outgoing mail. Manager Amy Kerschner 
says that the main service provided is photocopying. 
Mailing requests are also made often. The Secretarial 
Center will print, stuff and send out letters. 

During its peak months of August and January, the 
Center receives around 2,000 photocopy requests. 
This equals out to about 150,000 sheets of paper.

You're in hurry and trying to get to your 
next class without getting locked out of 
the room. Your dashing around people, 
you look down because you feel your 
shoe's lace is untied. While you're 
looking down you see an envelope, you see on 
that paper, if found return to the address you see. 
Wondering what is inside you take a sneak peak 
and notice there is a $20 bill in there. What are you 
to do? 





C 



The smart decision would be to turn it in, 
but then again you are a broke college student 
using any change you can find in the glove box just 
to get something to eat at McDonald's. You look 
around to see if anyone notices you picking up the 
envelope. You see that no one is looking, so you 
slowly put it away in your pocket and go on your 
way. 

After you take it you start to wonder what 
could happen if you return it, yeah you would be 
a good citizen but would you get anything out of 
it? You might get a good pat on the back, but what 
good is that? That should mean more then getting 
a prize, because you don't always have to receive 
something for doing something else. Sometimes 
the better things in life are just giving a smile for 
doing something good. ^^^^^^^ttt^

If you decide to do the bad decision and keep the money, that small amount of money you now 
have in your pocket makes a big difference to the people or organization. Example, say the money you 
have belongs to an organization and they are raising money to take a trip, but when it all comes down, 
they can't go. Why? Because they were short $20, sound familiar? 

It's so easy to just turn your head and pretend that you didn't see anything then just to lend a 
helping hand. It's like telling a lie, it's easy to do that, but yet hard to tell the truth. Then again some 
things are really better left unsaid. But doing that could cause someone else pain.

You may want to think 
twice before you even 
dare take a drink. 
We're not talking 
about a soda pop or 
energy drink, but a 
drink of alcohol. 

When someone plays with 
fire, more than likely they're going

to get burned. Who hasn't heard 
that saying before? You're young, in 
college, and believe you're invincible. 
Well, reality check, you're not. 

When someone does 
something they're not supposed 
to, ten to one they're going to pay 
the consequence in some form or 
another. 

There are many different 
ways to have a good time without 
doing something that is against 
the law. Anyone can avoid peer 
pressure. It may be hard to at the 
time, but it's also so easy to turn to 
at the same time. When a person 
doesn't give in, then they may think 
they're not cool enough. What's not 
cool is getting fined. 

When interviewing Cummins 
Hall Resident Assistant, L.T., about 
the consequences of getting caught 
with alcohol, she says, "They usually 
get fined a certain amount and take 



an alcoholics anonymous class for 
6-8 weeks. They have now changed it 
to a three-hour online class since the 
anonymous classes were ineffective. 
But the consequences are usually 
different for each person." 

That was the case for an 
anonymous BCC student who was 
caught once before. 

She says, "I was just at the 
wrong place at the wrong time. I 
never drink and was invited to a 
dorm room. Right before I was about 
to leave, the security cops came in 
saying they smelled the alcohol 
from down the hall and were going 
to give breathalyzers. Since I was 
the only one not drinking, I gladly 
agreed to be first until they couldn't 
get the breathalyzer to work. My 
consequence was to only pay the 
$35 fine for the online class while my 
friends had to pay the $100 fine, $35 
online class, and community service

and one girl had to take additional 
alcohol classes for hosting the party." 

According to the BCC 
handbook, it states the three 
offenses. The first one is a $100 fine 
and/or community service along 
with mandatory parent notification 
and a session with the counselor. 
The second one is $150 fine, 
community service, and the parental 
notification. Finally, the third offense 
is suspension or expulsion from 
college and dismissal from the 
residence halls. 

The displaying of any empty 
alcohol containers and wrappers is 
also prohibited, such as: empty beer 
bottles, cans, hard liquor bottles, 
shots, or any other alcohol glasses, 
or alcohol covers such as Crown 
Royal anywhere in the residence 
hall. This case has two offenses. First 
offense, containers and/or wrappers 
removed from the residence hall, 



and probation determined by the 
residence life staff. Second offense 
will also have the containers and 
wrappers removed and referred to 
Dean of Student 
Life. 
According to 



"I was just at the 
wrong place at the 
wrong time/ 7 




gleasonlll4. 
tripod.com, 
you get caught with alcohol and are 
18, but less than 21, your fines will 
vary from: $200 to the maximum 
being $500. Along with the other 
charges, there is an additional 40 
hours of community service or 
training program. 

When refusing a breath test, 
the teenagers could end up getting 
their driver's license suspended. 



Drinking on campus is a whole other 
story then off campus with friends 
while on the road. 

According to BCC handbook, 

the alcohol crime 

rate has varied 

from different 

years. In 2006 

there were no 

alcohol related 

crimes, yet 

in 2009 there 

were a total of 

14 cases. But yet 

there weren't any arrests made on 

campus for use of alcohol. 

When put in the situation 
dealing with alcohol, there is a chain 
you are put through starting with 
telling a Resident Assistant who then 
tells the security guards, who report 
it to the Dean of Student Life.

hen some- 
one does 
you a big 
favor, 
don't pay 
it back, Pay It Forward." This is 
a quote from the dramatic film 
"Pay It Forward." If you have not 
seen this movie, I declare it a 
must see. It's about an 11-year- 
old boy who devises a way to 
change the world, for the better. 
He develops a pyramid effect 
that will ripple its way through 
America. 

The young boy does a 
favor for three people, asking 
each of them to "pay the fa- 
vor forward" by doing favors 
for three other people, and 
so on, along a branching tree 
of good deeds. 

Well in present day, 
we have a new way to pay it

A Hero. Anyone can be a mem- 
ber, and have a wish. 

Anyone can be a hero! 
Wish Upon A Hero gives people 
the opportunity to ask for help 
and receive the help they need. 
Some just need some companion- 
ship, like being pen pals. Some 
wish for their elderly mother or 
young children to receive birthday 
cards to cheer them up. 

On the other hand, some 
have been stranded and need 
help getting home, or have been 
laid off and need help paying 
the bills. Wish Upon A Hero uses 
PayPal to transfer money and help 
these desperate people out. 



Now the first thing that comes 
to mind is 'Well somebody can just 
moke multiple accounts asking for 
money for bills and then just get loads 

<i( Wfien someone 
does you a 6ig 
favor, don't pay 
it 6acf^ (Pay It 
Forward' 




of free money! and that's not true. 
Wish Upon A Hero has had mul- 
tiple ways of making sure that each 
and every account is legitimate. 

One way they take care 
of this is by running IP Address 
checks. Each computer has an IP 
Address. The Wish System auto- 
matically runs the IP checks to 
confirm the number of IP address 
connected with an account. One 
Account indicates that this is the 
only user account associated with 
this IP address. Two Accounts indi- 
cates that there are two accounts 
associated with this IP address. (Or 
two people from the same house- 
hold.) Three plus Accounts indi- 
cates that there are three or more 
accounts associated with this IP 
address. (Possibly friends or family 
sharing a single computer.) 

Shared IP accounts indi- 
cates that there is an single IP used 
as a gateway for many computers. 
(AOL, offices and some ISPs will 
have a shared IP address.) 

According to Wish Upon 
A Hero, you are only allowed one 
account. They realize that people 
sometimes have a need to share 
computers, therefore they created 
the IP rules below. 

Only one account can be 
used for wishing. This program- 



ming was created as a security 
feature to stop people from creat- 
ing multiple wishing accounts. It 
was created to protect the heroes. 
Please read the IP rules below 
carefully. 

• If you have only one ac- 
count, then you can make and 
grant a wish. 

• If you have two accounts, 
then you can ONLY make a wish on 
the original account. You can grant 
a wish on both. 

• If you have three or more 
accounts, then you can't make or 
grant a wish and ALL your accounts 
may be closed. 

If you have a shared IP 
(AOL, Corporate Network) your ac- 
count will be marked as a "Shared 
IP." Shared IPs do not register with 
the system, therefore they cannot 
guarantee them as an individual 
user. Heroes will be responsible 
for their own actions when grant- 
ing shared IP wishes. If they catch 
you creating multiple accounts on 
a shared IP address or switching 
your IP address to create multiple 
accounts, then all your accounts 
will be closed. 

These are just a couple pre- 
ventable measures Wish Upon A 
Hero partakes in to prevent scam- 
mers. 



So, whether you have a little 
or a lot, everyone can be a hero. 
We can always lend a helping hand 
in some way. I'm just glad someone 
came up with the idea of the Wish 
Upon A Hero website and put it in 
action. It's a great way for everyone 
to get involved in making the world 
a better place, and Pay It Forward.

Falling into a pit of hands, Kylie Hurlbutt, Valley Center 
sophomore, prepares herself for the collision. 



While at practice, Katie Milford, Valley Center freshman, 
falls back onto her stunt partner. Even the slightest foot 
movement can cause a fall. 



Putting on a smile while 
getting tossed up into 
the air like a rag doll is 
not always an easy task, 
but cheerleaders make 
an effort to do it every game. Even 
when the team is losing, cheer- 
leaders keep a smile on their face 
and shout as loud as they can to try 
and motivate the players and the 
crowd. 

"It is our duty to keep 
our heads held high with a smile 
even in defeat to keep our crowds 
pumped and in good spirit/' Allison 
Roncone, freshman from Wichita 
South, says.

The Butler Spirit Squad 
consists of 19 members and the 
coach, Holly Schaffner. Currently, 
this semester, Schaffner is running 
the team without a manager or an 
assistant. 

"We have a physical trainer 
that we can go see, but not one 
that comes to practice. If the girls 
get hurt at practice we have to wait 
for a trainer to get here or just do 
without one," Schaffner says. 

Before trying out for cheer- 
leading, students are required to 
sign a form acknowledging the 
risks of the sport. In the form it 
states that the student/athlete 



During co-ed stunts, Za 
Idleman, both Flint Hill: 



participating in the intercollegiate 
athletic program could mildly, 
moderately or severely injure the 
anatomy in one of several of the 
following: muscles, tendons, liga- 
ments, bones, skin, teeth and any 
of the vital organs. Catastrophic 
injuries, permanent paralysis or 
even death may also occur during 
participation. There is not an abso- 
lute prevention against any of the 
mentioned potential injury sites. 

There are many precautions 
Schaffner and the cheerleaders 
take in order to reduce the number 
of falls. 

While there is not an ab- 




jmpower catches Sydney 
ashmen, at practice. 



solute way to prevent these acci- 
dents, Schaffner does not let them 
perform a stunt in front of a crowd 
until they have successfully com- 
pleted it in front of her three times 
without error. 

"We work hard at practice 
to look the way we do at games. 
There's nothing like the feeling of 
performing a new skill and hitting it 
right on in front of a crowd. Chanc- 
es are, we spent countless hours 
on that skill, and regardless of how 
hard it was, the feeling of hitting it 
and hearing the crowd cheer for us 
is amazing!" Megan Rinkenbaugh, 
Augusta freshman, says. 



Flying, twisting, turning, Kylie Hurlbutt rotates her body 
8-10 feet in the air with the assistance of Allie Friday, 
Clearwater sophomore, to land into a cradle catch. 



Rules for guys and girls help 
to prevent falling. The guys who 
make up the main base know to 
catch with their legs and not their 
back. Girls know to always stay stiff 
as a board, and not to reach out to 
catch themselves, so they don't hit 
a spotter in the face. 

Also, if a girl is dropped 
onto the floor during a stunt at 
practice, the group is required 
to do 25 crunches. Falling again 
results in 50 crunches and a third 
fall means no more stunting for the 
rest of the day. 

"Usually if a girl hits the 
ground three times then it just 



means they are getting tired, and 
that is when they need to stop 
anyway, because that increases 
chances of injury," Schaffner says. 

Even with the risk of injury, 
the members focus on cheering 
and do not to let the possibility of 
injury stop them. 

"Yes, I have fallen a few 
times, but like they say, 'If at first 
you don't succeed, try, try again!'" 
Roncone says. 

Even if a person attends 
a losing game, they will see a big 
smile on the faces of the Butler 
Spirit Squad as they motivate the 
crowd and the players.

he season started out 
looking better than ever, 
with a 6-0 start. These 
Lady Grizzlies looked 
like they could be going for an 
W undefeated season. However, 
after a good start they stand at 
a good looking 16-6 record 
as of late January, 6-2 in 
conference play. 
This team plays with 
energy and 
efficiency, 
and it shows 
on the floor 
and on the 
stat sheet. A 
great season 
looks to be in store, with maybe a 
good playoff push, and who knows 
maybe a hoisted trophy. 
Abby Fawcett, Wichita 
sophomore, is a standout on the 
team. She is in the top 25 in the 
nation in scoring, with a couple 
high 30 point games. 

"She is the best player I have 
ever coached," Head Coach Mike 
Helmer says. 

This young lady gets it 
done night in night out, an 
outstanding all around player, 
who has "in the gym range." 
As soon as her feet touch the 
court, she is in her range. Also 
she isn't just a scorer, she is 
terrific on both ends of the 
floor, and she comes to play 

every game with total energy chantee Louis, Wichita freshman, goes 
and effort. One just cannot say after a loose ball. The Grizzly women 
enough about Fawcett. defeated Colby Jan. 24, 74-57. 

The floor general (point 



guard) for the Lady Grizzlies is 
Paige Franklin, Dallas sophomore. 
Maybe the reason why this team 
flows so nicely, and plays with so 
much energy, is in large part due 
to her. Although she is not a great 
scorer, she pushes off of makes 
or misses, leading to a lot of fast 
break buckets. 

Their biggest win as a team 
came on Jan. 15 against a solid 
Hutchinson basketball team. They 
won the game 55-51 in The Power 
Plant. 

Also, Jordyn Tolefree, Lawrence 
freshman, has had a pretty good 
season. Next season she looks to 
be the one to take over the lead 
role for this Lady Grizzlies team. 

"She is an outstanding player, 
with lots of talent," Helmer says. 

She is great on defense and 
offense and hopefully can pick up 
her play in the second half of the 
season.

Grizzly men's basketball "diamonds in 
the rough" pull team out of bumpy start 



builcrofrlast year's success 



t's been a season of 
ups and downs for this 
Grizzly basketball team, 
which has led to a 14-7 
record, 4-3 in conference 
play as of Jan. 26. However, 
this team plays with great 
chemistry and has a few 
diamonds in the rough. The 
Grizzly basketball team's 
talent level is way beyond 
what their record displays. 
Quite frankly they are one of 
the best teams to watch. 

Josh Gibbs, Raytown, 
Mo. sophomore, is an 
outstanding balanced player, 
who can score with ease. 
Gibbs has been leading the 
team in scoring at around 17 
points per game. Although 
injuries benched the star 
guard/forward for the first 
few games, he managed 
to overcome adversity and 
contribute to his team, 
which was looking for a 
scoring option. 

Once healthy and back

'een 

He leads 
; and 



rebounds, and he is second 
in points per game. With 
God-given talent to jump 
out of the gym, Ingram puts 
on a show nearly every 
time on the court. He has a 
willingness to finish above 
the rim that he combines 
with the skill-set in order 
to do so. You could lob the 
guy a pass from half-court, 
and he wouldn't mind going 
up there and throwing it 
down. In fact, he prefers 
to. His biggest struggle has 
been fouls. He has been in 
and out of foul trouble all 
season. 

As a team, the Grizzlies 
have struggled a bit in 
conference play. However, 
their best win of the season 
came against a Hutchinson 
team ranked number one in 
the nation. With home court 
advantage on their side, the 
Grizzlies took advantage, 
beating Hutchinson, 81-80. 

As the season is coming 
to a close, Zac Bargen, 
Chadron, Neb. freshman, 
has picked up his play 
on both ends of the 
court. Bargen looks to be 
outstanding in his upcoming 
sophomore season.
