tudents come from different regions of the United States of America to come to Butler Community 
College. Many Kansans wonder "Why Kansas?" Students arrived to BCC on August 21. Expectations 
were either reached or weren't. Many things have set students off, culture shocks have been talked 
about, and how the opposite sex reacts together. 





When deciding where to 
go, Richard Wilhite, freshman, 
didn't think about coming to 
Butler. 

"I wasn't cleared on time 
because my school didn't send my 
transcript on time, so I couldn't 
get into a Dl school," Wilhite says. 

Not being cleared didn't 
stop him from pursing his goal to 
run track and field. 

"I contacted coach Jeff 
Becker and told him my situation 
and he told me he had one more 
spot open," Wilhite says." So I took 
the spot." 

Wilhite had many oppor- 
tunities to go to bigger schools like 
Arkansas, Arizona and Florida. 

"I really want to go to Ar- 
kansas after Butler. So hopefully 
that happens next time around," 
Wilhite says.

When Dominique Ander- 
son, freshman, was asked "Why 
Kansas?," she had a weird face ex- 
pression, then continued to look 
at the sky and wondered "Why 
Kansas?" 

"I came to Kansas because 
I like running and Butler has a 
good track team," Anderson says. 

Not being able to go home 
takes a toll on students who can't 
go home every other weekend. 
The weeks get long and boring. 

"It's so different in Kan- 
sas, my friends and I have to en- 
tertain each other on the week- 
ends," Anderson says. "One day 
we went and sprayed doors with 
silly string."

There are many reasons 
to come to Butler, but it seems 
like sports is one of the main rea- 
sons why Chris Williams, fresh- 
man, came. 

"I have a track scholar- 
ship," Williams says. 

Coming to a community 
college makes it easier to get to 
the place you have in mind. 

"I really wanted to go to 
Michigan, but the coach up there 
told me about Butler," Williams 
says. 

Many things are different 
from Kansas compared to Michi- 
gan. 

"The culture is so differ- 
ent here from back home. The 
way people dress to the way they 
talk. It's still a little hard to get 
used to," Williams says.

The main success formula 
for college is to go to class and do 
your best in the classroom aspect 
of it, but there are students who 
have a full-time job. 

"Football and baseball 
take a big part of my time," Khiry 
Mcquay says. "I had to learn how 
to balance school and my sports." 

When having to be so far 
away from your comfort zone you 
start missing the things that are 
most important to you. 

"I miss being back at 
home with my family. It's hard to 
be hundreds of miles away from 
them," Mcquay says.

oing from 
living at 

home with 
parents to 
living with 
a total stranger can be 
a bit overwhelming for 
new college students. 
For freshman roomies 
Bethanie Tharman from 
Wabaunsee and Ashley 
Nilles from Andale, 
this was exactly their 
thoughts. 

"Before we moved 
in I had no idea what she 
looked like or sounded 
like. I didn't think she 
even had a cell phone, it 
freaked me out," Tharman 
says. Much to Tharman's 
surprise, Nilles though the 
same thing. 

"When I saw her 
purple hair I was like 'oh 
my gosh what I have gotten 
myself into?'" Nilles says. 

The girls texted 
each other before they 
met and talked about 
decoration, food and 
cleaning arrangements. 

"We both are really 
laid-back so it was easy to

Community College

get along," Nilles says. 

Nilles and Tharman 
are both on scholarships 
for tutoring the athletes 
and were able to move in a 
week early. 

"When picking 

sides we didn't fight at all, 
it was great" Tharman says. 

The girls are very 
respectful of each other 
by being quiet while each 
other's sleeping and giving 
each other enough space. 
Although the girls do enjoy 
spending time together 
watching "Tom and Jerry" 
and "Family Guy" everyday 
from 10-11 p.m. 



Ethan Kraai from 
Delta, Chase Haines from 
Stillwater and Caesar 
Brown from Wamego are all 
three freshman roommates 
with a completely different 
story. 

"We are all on 
the basketball team and 
we don't really hang 
out much," Brown says. 
"When I first saw Ethan I 
thought he was a big dude 
and pretty chill and Chase 



seemed goofy," Brown says. 

Like the girls, the 
boys had no problem living 
together. 

"We buy our own 
food and we texted each 
other before meeting. I 
thought my roommates 
were cool dudes," Haines 
says. 

The boys have 
sections of the room that 
they share, including the 
dresser and desk. Although 
all the boys thought of each 
other as cool, Kraai thought 
a bit different about one of 
his roommates. 

"I thought Ceasar 
was pretty cool. I thought 
Chase was extremely goofy 
in his cowboy boots," Kraai 
says. 

So college may not 
all be fun and games and 
having a roommate isn't 
necessarily all that bad, but 
finding a roomy or roomies 
that will watch "Tom and 
Jerry" with you and laugh 
at your goofy cowboys 
boots makes the experience 
of sharing a space all that 
much better.

think she even had a 

cell phone"

her I was like OMG!

We all have that 
one thing that 
makes us a little 
different from 
everyone else, 
that one quirky habit that most 
people would think is weird or 
odd. But because of that it makes 
you who you are. And for that you 
should not change. It does not hurt 
to have something a little different 
than everyone else. As long as you 
enjoy doing it, it should not matter 
what everyone else thinks. 

"I only wear a pair of socks 
once. I never wear the same pair 
again. When I'm done with a pair 
of socks I give them away to the 
(Salvation Army)," says Crystal Rose, 
Herrington sophomore. 

Some people will do the 
same thing over and over again and 
it will never get old to them. But 



— — ^— ^^-^— — — 

to other people just thinking about 
that would bore them. 

"Everything I own is purple 
from my phone, computer, key 
chain," says Cat Crawford, Winfield, 
freshman. 

In some situations, when 
people continue to overdo their 
habit it becomes an obsession 
more then an interest. But they 
do not notice it has gotten out of 
control until someone else points 
that out. But even then when they 
are told about what they are doing 
and how other people might be 
viewing them, they continue to do 
it. Because they enjoy it and do not 
care what other people say about 
what they are interested in. 

Everyone has their own 
taste in things, which makes us who 
we are as an individual. If everyone 
was supposed to be the same then 
life would be a little, okay, life would 
just be boring all together. 

But when you toss some- 
thing out of the loop into the 
picture it makes life a whole lot 
more interesting. 



Not saying that common 
interests like collecting baseball cards 
are boring, it's just there are so many 
people that do that same hobby. 

44 Everything I own 
is purple from my 
phone, computer, 
key chain/ 
-Cat Crawford 

Just try something out of 
the box that is something fun and 
crazy, but also kind of off-the-wall, 
and unique. 

It is just different from the 
people who view them. For those 
people they probably do it to take 
stress out or to calm their nerves. 
But for whatever reason they do it 
for, you should not judge them for 
liking what they do. 

So, if you have this urge to 
start something new, well then, go 
for it.

It is 10:30 p.m., time for bed. 
You lie down, close your eyes 
and wait for the sleep to come 
and take you. ..but it never does. 
Everyone has something like 
this happen at least once. But people 
diagnosed with sleeping disorders 
experience this almost every night. 
According to www.ehealthmd.com, 
things such as a full schedule, working 
long hours and jet lag can cause a 
person to stay up late at night. Several 
different people at Butler Community 
College suffer from sleep disorders. 

Jeremiah Gaston, Wichita 
sophomore, has been diagnosed with 
insomnia for 14 years. The longest 
Gaston has stayed awake was three 
days straight. When Gaston is awake 
late at night he keeps himself busy 
with his sketches of drawings and 
books. "I will sketch animals, pets, 
people or I will copy another picture, 
such as book covers," says Gaston. 

Brandon Sweatman, Pomona 
sophomore, has been diagnosed with 
insomnia since 2009. "I sleep in all 
day until 1 p.m., and then I'm up all 
night," says Sweatman. What helps 



e 9e 



t^D;

Sweatman's insomnia so he can 
sleep at night is sleeping pills such 
as Ambien and Ibuprofen PM. 

Unlike Kylie, for Jaime Sproul, 
Augusta freshman also at El Dorado, 
pain medication helps Sproul sleep. 

"I didn't know I needed 
Lortab, I just happened to take one, 
one night before I went to bed for 
my back pain, and it helped me 
sleep for a really long time," says 
Sproul. 

The 
longest Sproul 
has ever stayed 
awake was for 74 
to 75 hours. "It 
affects my college 
life, because 

sometimes I will 
be so exhausted 
by lack of sleep 
that I can't get 
focused on my 
school work and 
my grades end 
up dropping." 

Sproul doesn't suffer all the 
time from insomnia, just when she is 
under times of stress and emotional 



distress. 

Another sleep disorder 
other than insomnia is called sleep 
apnea. Sleepapneaiswhenaperson 
stops breathing for a moment in 

the middle 
of the night 
when they 
are sleeping. 
Dr. Keith 
West, Radio- 
TV instructor 
at Butler, was 
diagnosed 
with sleep 
apnea two 
years ago. 
He has been 
struggling 
with it for 
about eight 
years now. 

When West was being 
diagnosed, the doctor told him 
he would first stop breathing a 
minute, and then have restful 
sleep or REM (Rapid Eye Moment) 



"There is 
usually a solution 
to why you can't 
fall asleep. It 
could be because 
you are stressed 
or worried about 
something/'

sleep for 15 minutes. 

West was attached to a 
machine called a CPAP (Continuous 
Positive Airway Pressure) that 
helped him breathe during the 
diagnosis. 

The CPAP lightly forces air 
into the lungs to help the person 
to keep breathing. Along with 
his sleep apnea, he developed 
blackouts and heart palpitations. 
West believes that since both his 
parents and his cousin also have 
sleep apnea that heredity can play 
a part in it as well. 

One Sunday morning when 
West was preaching in Oxford, Kan. 
he couldn't remember exactly what 
book in the Bible he was preaching 



about. He had trouble with 
memory loss and trouble thinking. 
"I remember that the verse was in 
there, I just couldn't think of what 
book of the Bible it was in," says 
West. 

West still deals with memory 
loss when he is preaching. "I need 
to go back and relearn it," says Dr. 
West. What helps him relearn when 
he has memory problems during his 
sermon is going back over his notes 
and study aids. 

West still struggles with 
sleep apnea on a daily basis. He 
uses the CPAP anytime that he 



needs it whether it's falling asleepr- 
in front of his TV, going to sleep at 
night, falling asleep in his chair in his 
office, or when he is traveling. West 
says the CPAP has made a huge 
difference by helping him with his 
breathing, memory and blackouts 
and would recommend it to anyone 
who struggles with sleep apnea.

Role Mod 



According to dictionary.com: 
role model-a person 
regarded by others, 
especially younger people, 
as a good example to 
follow. Does that ring a bell and sound 
like someone you look up to? 

When things get hard you need 
someone to talk to. That's when you 
go to a leader or role model. Someone 
you are not scared to let your emotion 
run wild with. Where you just blurt 
things out without thinking. We're 
not talking about your best friend, but 
someone who may or may not be an 
older adult. 

Who's your role model? Do 
you remember how you met your role 
model? Many people's role model 
might even be their own parents. 
Because they have lived with them and 
know how hard they work. Plus their 



parents have been along with them them our own way. But when you 

for the ride when things hit rock go talk to someone it really helps in 

bottom. the long run. Most likely more then 

It's never good to hold you think. Because when someone 

things in because that could lead to holds it in they could end up bursting 

depression, which may cause bigger things out when they don't mean 



and worse 

problems. 

When 

someone 

struggles 

with 

depression 

it's never 

good. That's 

when 

you need 

someone to lean on, who won't 

judge you for your problems. And 

won't question you about the issue 

or issues.

What qualities do

PHOBIAS 

vjhat it Oythout you/f&cw? 



The word phobia originated 
in the Greek language 
and meant "fear." When 
someone experiences 

a phobia they get 
this overwhelming emotion of 
irrationality, intensity and a persistent 
worry of certain situations or objects. 
The main reason why people 
with this disorder cannot overcome 
it is because of their unreasonable 
desire to avoid whatever is causing 
them to become so scared of 
something. 

For example, a person who 
was attacked by a dog. The occurrence 
of that would have enough of an 
impact on this certain person that 
they would develop a fear of that dog 
or in some cases an irrational fear of 
all dogs. 

A major portion of the 



American population is afraid of 
public speaking which if it is severe 
enough could inhibit all social 
involvement. 

According to an American 
study by the National Institute 
of Mental Health they found 
that between 8.5% and 18.1% of 
Americans suffered from phobias. 

Broken down by age and 
gender, the study found that phobias 
were the most common mental illness 
among women in all age groups and 
second most among men older than 
25. 

Kendra Dettman, Burlingame 
freshman, has a fear of drowning 
which can be associated with 
necrophobia. 

"My fear of drowning came 
when I tried scuba diving. The whole 
mask and the limited air I had to use 



to breathe freaked me out, it was 
basically me being claustrophobic 
under water," says Dettman. 

There are methods of 
treatment out there for phobias but 
the proposed benefits vary from 
person to person. 

According to helpguide.org, 
the most frequent used treatment 
for phobias is a type of cognitive- 
behavioral therapy called systematic 
desensitization or exposure therapy. 
The NIMH says about 75% of people 
are able to overcome their phobias 
through cognitive-behavioral therapy.

an athlete, this tends 
to happen quite often. 
Many athletes are de- 
fined by their peers as 
sports minded, arrogant 
jocks, who get easy As 
just because they play 
a sport. But this state- 
ment, my friends, is 
many times wrong at 
Butler. 

The truth is 
there is a huge support 



group behind the ath- 
letes at Butler Commu- 
nity College. People that 
know how many athletes 
really are. These people 
know that they are not 
just passed along and 
instead of holding them 
on a high pedestal they 
constantly push them to 
succeed. 

These people 
'Behind the Athletes' are 
teachers, coaches, advis- 
ers and tutors. When the 
athletes aren't hitting 
home runs or scoring 
goals, many times they 
are with these people 
working on their futures. 

Some athletes are 
told every day they won't 



make it in life and won't 
have a future. However, 
these people that stand 
behind them tell them dif- 
ferently. They teach them 
to step away from all the 
stereotypes that have 
been pegged onto them. 

With the help from 
these people, athletes can 
accomplish great success 
here and after Butler. But 
exactly who are these 
people? What do they 
do specifically to change 
these young women's and 
men's lives? 

Take a look 'Be- 
hind the Athlete' and 
break through the stereo- 
type with these astonish- 
ing people's stories. 





Destiny Curtis: Tutor 

School can be 
tough, especially when 
you're an athlete being 
told that you'll never pass. 
The Athletic Academic Co- 
ordinator has put together 
a band of tutors to help 
these athletes put those 
words of discouragment in 
the past. 

Destiny Curtis, 
sophomore, is one out of 
13 tutors that work with 
the Butler Athletic Depart- 
ment. She has worked with 
athletes for almost 2 1/2 
years now. She takes pride 
in helping Butler athletes. 

Originally, Curtis 
didn't plan on being a 
tutor. She was more inter- 
ested in being a baseball 
manager. 

"I wanted to be a 
baseball manager but it 
was Shannon (Hurt, the 
coordinator) who told me 
about tutoring. She said 
it was one of the hardest 
jobs on campus. That mo- 
tivated me to be a tutor," 



says Curtis. 

Curtis works with 
mostly football but other 
tutors work with a variety 
of sports. 

Curtis has a trick 
when working with the 
Grizzly football players. 

"You have to find 
out who they are and 
actually get to know them. 
Sometimes when work- 
ing with them they can be 
stubborn but you've gotta 
look past it and find out 
who they are," says Curtis. 

She also points out 
mistakes that some tutors 
don't realize they are do- 
ing. 

"I've seen some tu- 
tors who do get frustrated 
sometimes and treat the 
athletes like little kids," 
Curtis says. 

Not every college 
has this program. Many 
athletes never see the nec- 
essary help that they need. 

"If it wasn't for 
this program a lot of these 



athletes wouldn't be able 
to go to Divsion 1 schools. 
Not only are we tutors 
but we act as mentors to 
make sure they stay on 
track," says Curtis. 

Thinking back to 
the stereotyped athlete 
many students believe 
that athletes are just 
passed along in their 
classes. Some may even 
think that the faculty is 
giving them an easy A. 

Curtis says this 
idea is false. 

"There are no ex- 
cuses for the athletes. We 
make it harder for them, 
not easier. Not only are 
the tutors pushing them, 
so is the faculty," says 
Curtis. 

Curtis and her fel- 
low group of tutors help 
break past the athletic 
stereotype. 

"We pressure 
them to work hard. They 
just don't get passed 
along."

Shannon Hurt: Athletic Academic Coordinator 



There is an old say- 
ing, "Behind every great 
man, there is a greater 
woman." The same goes 
for our athletic depart- 
ment. Behind every great 
athletic team, there is a 
greater woman. Her name 
is Shannon Hurt. 

Hurt is the Butler 
Athletic Academic Coordi- 
nator. She is in charge of 
scheduling classes, coun- 
seling and placing tutors 
with the athletes. She's 
been at Butler for five 
years now and has a his- 
tory in tutoring. 

"I tutored in college 
at Butler, Wichita State 
and Louisiana State in all 
academics," says Hurt. 

She originally went 
to school to be a kindergar- 
ten teacher but decided to 
work with college students 
because she had a pas- 
sion for it. She enjoyed the 
reward "to see people suc- 
ceed." 



"My goal is to make 
them better people in soci- 
ety," says Hurt. 

Working with the 
athletes here at Butler can 
have its pros and cons. A 
huge problem that Hurt 
and the department have 
is the stereotype that some 
students cast upon the ath- 
letes. Many students see 
them as intimidating. 

Another con is 
previous education. Not 
all, but some athletes have 
been passed along or have 
been given good grades so 
they are allowed to play 
their sport in high school. 
This causes problems when 
they enter college. 

"I tell them I'm 
going to push you academi- 
cally. Not do the work for 
you. It makes me angry 
when these kids were 
just passed along in high 
school. It really is a disser- 
vice to the athlete," says 
Hurt. 



There is a new law 
in junior college sports that 
you cannot play a sport un- 
less you have a high school 
diploma. Before, students 
did not have to finish high 
school to play for a juco 
school and they could still 
achieve a college degree. 
This is now being stopped 
so more athletes will try to 
gain a diploma. 

Working with these 
young men and women 
isn't completely negative. 
Hurt finds a lot of positive 
things in the department. 

"I love the relation- 
ships that I build with the 
students. You see them 
learn and grow a lot. A lot 
of them are intimidated 
by college so I try to get 
past that barrier. I also love 
watching them play their 
sports and of course seeing 
them go on past Butler," 
says Hurt. 

Hurt is not alone in 
trying to see these ath-

letes succeed. She has tons 
of support from faculty, 
coaches and the tutors that 
work under her. She tries to 
have faculty respect her and 
what she is doing, even if 
they don't think it is neces- 
sary. 

"A great deal of 
faculty is great about get- 
ting back to me. I wouldn't 
say they're against me, I 
just don't think they under- 
stand how important this is. 
Coaches also work with me 
and completely understand 
this program and what has 
to be done," says Hurt. 

Along with faculty 
and coaches, there are 13 
student tutors. They sit 
down with the athletes and 
have one on one tutor- 
ing. Hurt works around the 
tutors' schedules and the 
athletes' schedules and 
practices. Each team has a 
different type of tutoring. 

"With football and 
basketball we do one on 



one or group tutoring. 
There is a maximum of 
three in a group. Volley- 
ball and softball have a 
study time and can ask for 
help during that time. We 
try to stress to our ath- 
letes that they need to go 
to teachers during office 
hours," Hurt says. 

With this program, 
Hurt sees many successes. 
The ones who are pre- 
pared for college and be- 
come leaders to the other 
athletes are always a suc- 
cess for Hurt. Those who 
rise above the stereotype 
and being put down are 
also a success. 

"We have people 
tell them you aren't going 
to make it and they prove 
them wrong. They work 
hard. This group is a team, 
a unit," says Hurt. 

Hurt tries to teach 
them to be good in the 
classroom and Butler is 
the only one in the confer- 



ence to have this program. 

Many athletes that 
have gone through this 
program have found aid in 
some way. Whether it be in 
their education or later in 
life. 

Students need 
to see past the athletic 
stereotype to understand 
this. 

Hurt wants people 
to understand that each 
one of these athletes is a 
person. 

"If you give them 
a chance and get to know 
who they are then you will 
want to help them," says 
Hurt. 

The people behind 
them want to see them be 
academically amazing and 
find joy in seeing them do 
so. 

Hurt says, "When you 
walk away and you know 
you taught someone some- 
thing it's a reward and you 
know you've done good."

Band geeks? I think not. 
Butler Community 
College pep band rocks 
the house. Before 
students can make 
some noise, newcomers must first 
have high school band experience 
or have the consent of the instructor 
to participate. 

Membership 
in the pep band 
is conditioned 

primarily on the 
instrumental needs of 
the ensemble. Effort 
is made to recruit 
as many interested 
players as possible 
while maintaining a 
balanced ensemble. 
Students are required 
to attend all sporting 
events and music 
rehearsals, just like 
most scholarships. 

"The pep 

band is such an 
important part of 
our community" 

says Kevin Pickerall, 
Butler adjunct facility 
member. 

"We are pretty much 
the cheerleaders for 
Butler" says Pickerall. 



Pickerall is the head 
manager at Blockbuster in El Dorado 
and" plays trumpet in the college 
band and also helps direct. The 
pep band plays at numerous home 
football and basketball games for 
the college. 

"We motivated the crowd 
and provide spirit as well as 
entertainment," John Templin says. 
Templin is the pep band director. He 
had also taught at the college for 33 




years and retired back in 2002 but 
still continues to direct the band. 

"I was brought up with 
music. My grandfather played the 
violin, my grandmother played 
guitar and my mother taught me to 
play the piano and the organ. I just 
love music," Templin says. 

Before the band can toot 
their horn the band practices 
diligently. Band practices are once 
a week on Wednesdays from 1-2 
p.m. in the 700 building. Students 
not only get to play the music but 
get to pick out the music selections. 

"I'll buy some musicto listen 
to. I don't know how many CDs that 
the publisher sends me, but I picked 
out the ones I like and narrow them 
down and let the band vote 
on what songs they want to 
play. I also wrote a couple 
of songs for the band," 
Templin says. 

Templin will buy the 
music from the publisher 
and then narrow the 
songs that the band plays 
from there. He also says 
that his songs were never 
played in the band, though. 
Surprisingly, most Butler 
students don't know that 
the band plays not only 
at football and basketball 
games but also for the 
Riverfest in downtown

El Dorado and have done numerous 

kids events and played at the Jayhawk 

Conference playoffs and bowl games. 

While the band is at the college games 

they "cheer" on the team while yelling "defense" in harmony 

At the end of each year students are expected to be familiar 

with and execute all music in pep band repertoire in terms of 

accuracy, rhythm, phrasing, intonation, dynamics and tempo. 

"This year, I feel that the pep band is very spirited. They 
do an excellent job entertaining the crowd as well as playing 
the music," Templin says.

Student and Athlete by Day 

and Security by Night 



For a person who has run 
competitively in high 
school, Benson Lang'at, 
freshman from Kenya, 
has impressed many 
coaches, by setting many records 
at Butler during his first semester in 
spring 2010. 

Lang'at was born in 
Kapsabet, Riftvalley, a place where 
many world-known middle distance 
runners come from. However, he 
never even considered running 
for a career. Instead he played

basketball, soccer and rugby for 
Kericho Tea High School. 

Lang'at's spark for running 
came from a neighbor named Elijah 
Lang'at. Elijah greatly helped him 
in pursuing running by giving him 
new Nike shoes, taking him to big 
races and telling him to never stop 
running. 

Moving to the United States 
to train with his Uncle Ben Kurgat, 
Lang'at decided to move to Butler 
for a running scholarship. 

Some of his many awards 



include placing second in indoor 
nationals for the 1,000 meters, two 
times indoor ail-American, two time 
outdoor all-American, Academic all- 
American and honorable mention 
for Region 6. 

"Butler has been like a 
home away from home for me. The 
students, instructors, workers and 
all of the Butler community are 
amazing people. Butler has helped 
me achieve my dreams," Lang'at 
says.

Chaos 

With all of the chaos going on 
in Lang'at's life it is a necessity 
that he always has a schedule. 
"If I forget to do one thing on 
my schedule then my whole 
day is messed up, and it takes 
awhile to make up everything 
that I missed," Lang'at says.

Lang'at's Uncle, Ben Kurgat, 
manager of Global MBIO Club 
based in North Carolina, is the 
person who finally convinced him 
to move to the United States of 
America to train for running. He 
trained with his uncle for two 
months before making his way to 
Kansas. "I just want to build my 
foundation before I go to a four 
year college with a good running 
program," Lang'at says.

Earning a scholarship 
is not only an 
accomplishment but a 
goal for most students. 
Scholarships bring aid 
to scholars during college and

the Butler scholarship contract, 
agree to the terms and sign their 
name on the dotted line.

and school. 

Even though students sign 
this agreement there are still cases 
where the rules and expectations 
are broken. Larry Patton is the 
Dean of the Humanities and Fine 
Arts Department. He oversees 
the scholarship students of the 
department and that they follow 
their agreement. 

"For music theatre and 
dance they are expected to take

requirements. There has been a 
case where students have refused 
to do what they are told to by 
an adviser and this has lead to 
problems with their scholarship/' 
says Patton. 

Outside of class time 
some students seem to put 
this agreement to the back of 
their minds. They may go to a 
party and drink or take explicit 




pictures. Putting these pictures 
on the Internet has gotten some 
students in quite a bit of trouble. 

Some students may feel 
like they are being censored too 
much by getting in trouble for 
stuff they put on the Internet. 
Patton thinks otherwise. 

"I don't think they are 
being censored at all. Students 
need to remember they are 
representing our school and 
that they need to follow Butler's 
policies," he says. 

Bad behavior is not the 
only way a scholarship student 
could lose their scholarship. 
A problem that almost every 
student has is that pesky G.P.A. 

"You need to pass a 
minimum of 12 hours with a 2.0. 
You must be enrolled in 15 credit 
hours while on scholarship," says 
Patton. 

Although scholarship

students may get their scholarship 
taken away or be put on probation, 
they do get a chance to redeem 
themselves. A student could even 
gain their scholarship back. 

"Taking a class in 
intersession and passing will allow 
a student to be eligible for their 
scholarship/' Patton says. 

Patton wants to remind 
students of just a few things about 
their agreement. 

"You should go to class 
every time the class meets. Try 



to be academically successful and 
meet the requirements that are 
in the scholarship you've signed. 
Remember etiquette at events 
and remember the dress code. 
Remember you are representing 
Butler/' he says. 

The faculty at Butler is not 



trying to be the bad guys when it 
comes to scholarships. They just 
want students to remember what 
they are signing onto. 

Patton wants students to 
do well while at Butler. 

Patton says, "Our goal is to 
make our students be successful."

Network. 

In the movie, "The Social Net- 
work/' director David Fincher 
and screenwriter Aaron Sorkin 
recreate the moment in which 
Facebook was invented. The 
movie takes viewers through the 
perspectives of a couple of brilliant 
college students who each claim 
that Facebook was their idea. The 
movie is based on the book, The 
Accidental Billionaires, by Ben Mez- 
rich. 

In the middle of the chaos 
are Mark Zuckenberg, played by 
Jesse Eisenberg, a super-smart Har- 
vard student who created a website 
that redefined our social web and 
Eduardo Saverin, portrayed by An- 



drew Garfield, who once 
was Zuckerberg's best 
friend and provided the 
foundation money for the 
company to expand. Nap- 
ster inventor Sean Parker, 
Justin Timberlake, brought 
Facebook to Silicon Val- 
ley's capitalists; and the 
Winklevoss twins, Armie 
Hammer and Josh Pence, 
Zuckenberg's classmates, 
sue him for stealing their 
idea and ownership of it. 

Zuckerberg moves the com- 
pany's base of operation to Palo 
Alto, at Parker's suggestion, while 
Saverin remains in New York seek- 
ing advertising support. When 
Saverin visits from New York, he is 




angered to find that Parker is living 
at the house and making business 
decisions for Facebook. After an ar- 
gument with Zuckerberg, Saverin 
freezes the company's bank ac-

count and returns to New York. 

The plot line continues 
with the Winklevoss twins com- 
peting in the Henely Royal Regat- 
ta and becoming outraged when 
they find out that Facebook has 
expanded to a number of univer- 
sities. Then they decide to sue. 
Saverin discovers that the deal 
he signed with Parker's investors 
allows them to dilute his share of 
the company from a third to less 
than one-tenth of one percent, 
while maintaining the ownership 
percentage of all other parties. 
He confronts Zuckerberg and 
then proceeds to tell him that he 
is going to sue him. 

The framing device 
throughout the film shows Mark 
testifying in depositions in two 
lawsuits: one filed by the Win- 
klevoss twins, and the other filed 
by Saverin. 

"The Social Network" 
started out with a fast-talking 
Zuckenberg that was very hard 
to understand. His sentences 
skipped from one subject to the 
next. It took me awhile to figure 
out that the men were replaying 



past events, talking to their lawyers 
about how Facebook got started 
and who first came up with the 
idea. 

The film is rated PG 13 but 
I would not recommend the film to 
teens under 17. There was quite a 
bit of drug references, sexual innu- 
endos and cussing. 

As time went on, the movie 
began to become increasingly better 
and more intriguing. Although this 
movie was two hours long it didn't 
give enough time to unveil the en- 
tire Facebook story or lawsuit that

the entire story of how the Face- 
book phenomenon got started 
which was really interesting to me. 
I never realized how many lawsuits 
were taken out on Zuckenberg. The 
movie skipped back and forth and 
was oftentimes hard to follow. "The 
Social Network" has become one 
my favorite movies. Overall, "The 
Social Network" was a three out of 
four stars.

Lady Grizzlies 



Amir Peyton 
Sports Media 

Last season the Lady 
Grizzlies were 26-13 in 
volleyball and fell short in 
the playoffs. This year the 
women are playing with 
a chip on their 
shoulder. As of 
now, the Lady 
Grizzlies are 25- 
10. All of their 
losses have been 
from ranked 

teams. Butler 
has only lost two 
games in their 
division. 

In the 
beginning of 
the year, Butler 
came in with 
little experience 
but Brittany 

Brown, El Dorado 

sophomore, and Amanda Newlin, 
Clearwater sophomore, carried 
the team on their shouulders and 
helped the team get through this 
tough season. The Lady Grizzlies 
have a good supporting cast that 
includes Lindsey Williams, Valley 
Center sophomore, Kayla Zoglman, 
Goddard sophomore, Nicole Lund, 
Wichita sophomore, Danielle 
Riemann, El Dorado sophomore, 
and Katy Spink, Andover freshman. 
The Lady Grizzlies grew as a 
team through the regular season. 
Now they can show what they 



have learned in the playoffs. When 
asked about the women's overall 
season performance, Head Coach 
Rick Younger says, "We are right 
on track. This year we had a hard 



season has been very succcessful. 
We are looking forward to winning 
our next matches."

Great Year 



for Grizzly Football 



Chad Hogan 
Sports Media 

Looking at this year's 
schedule for the sixth 
ranked Butler Grizzlies 
football team it wasn't 
going to be a walk in the 
park with four ranked opponents 
in the top 20 teams in the NJCAA 
preseason poll. The hardest part of 
the schedule for Butler was playing 
the fourth ranked 
Navarro Bulldogs 
and then the third 
ranked Fort Scott 
Greyhounds for the 
first two games of 
the season, then 
the 18th ranked 
Coffeyville Red 

Ravens, and the 11th 
ranked Hutchinson 
Blue Dragons in the 
last two games of the 
season. 

Luckily some 
key players from 
last year such as 
star wide receiver 
Marcus Kennard, 
Lawton, Okla. sophomore and 
monster defensive end Cornelius 
Carradine, Cincinnati sophomore, 
came back to play for the purple 
and gold. The biggest junior college 
pickup of the season, quarterback 
Zach Mettenberger, Watkinsville 
Ga., sophomore, would help the 
Grizzly's cause for greatness. 

The team that beat Butler 
twice last year, once in the regular 
season and then in the Region VI 
finals, was the next team on the list 
andthatteam wasthe numberthree 



ranked Fort Scott Greyhounds. The 
Greyhounds played in the National 
Championship last year but lost to 
Blinn College and now had to play 
a Butler team looking for revenge. 
The Grizzlies were looking for just 
that and looked like real Grizzly 
bears chasing around scared 
campers. The Grizzlies mauled the 




completions and five touchdowns 
with some serious help from 
Kennard, who caught five passes for 
127 yards and three touchdowns. 

The last game of the regular 
season ended up being the most 
hyped with the number one ranked 
Grizzlies taking on the number two 
ranked Hutchinson Blue Dragons at 
Galen Blackmore. Coming into this 
game it seemed like it was the most 
evenly matched game that has ever 
been played in football. Before 
the Butler game, Hutch's defense 



had only allowed one touchdown 
pass, had 11 interceptions and only 
allowed 507 yards passing. That 
matched up against Mettenberger 
who had passed for 23 touchdowns, 
1,820 yards and only three 
interceptions. Butler leaned onto 
their good run defense this season 
where teams averaged 43 carries a 
game against them 
and only a 2.6 yard 
i rush average. They 
had to stay strong 
against a tough run 
gamethat had rushed 
for 1,873 yards and 
28 touchdowns 

with a 5.5 yard rush 
average. 

Butler didn't care 
how good of a match- 
up it was because 
they decided to shut 
out the Blue Dragons 
28-0, taking the 
Region VI title and 
holding on to that 
number one overall 
ranking in the NJCAA poll to end the 
regular season. 

This season could become 
a season to remember not only 
if the Grizzlies win the National 
Championship for the seventh time 
but also for the players who could 
become Grizzly greats.

Cross Country Runs to Success 



Michael Bauer 
Sports Media 

Change of leadership 
has been the term to 
describe this year's 
Butler men's and 
women's cross-country 
teams. Former coach Kirk Hunter 
ended his ten 
years as the 
cross-country 
coach and 

departed for 
Wichita State. 
Hisreplacement 
was Jeff Becker 
from New 

Mexico Junior 
College. 

The 
leadership roles 
have also 

changed on the 
teams as well. This year Benson 
Langat, freshman from Kenya, has 
consistently led the men's team so 
far this season. Langat says Kenya 
is different from Kansas but he is 
enjoying life here nevertheless. 

"I think Kansas is a little 
different from where I come 
from, like the weather, it's 
different, but I like all the people 
in Kansas and everybody and I 
enjoy being at Butler." 

The men's team has 
worked their way up in the NJCAA 
polls where they currently sit at 
a tenth place ranking. 

The women's team sits at 
a 14th ranking in the polls and has 
had their fair share of success this 
season too. 




Elida Burciaga, sophomore 
from Corpus Christi, Texas, has been 
the leader of the Lady Grizzlies 
and has enjoyed a record-breaking 
season. One of those included 
moving uptosixth placeonthe Butler 

all-time list for 

fastest 5-K runners, 

which came at 

the Emporia State 

Invitational on Oct. 

1. 

The season started 

off with a trip to 

Cowley College 

where both teams 

finished second 

behind a very 

powerful Cowley 

County cross- 

country team. 

Wichita State's Invitational 
was next on the schedule. The 
men placed third while the women 
were fifth among NJCAA and NAIA 
competition. 



Grizzly to run a 6K. 

Running at Jones Park at the 
Emporia Invitational, four runners 
from both teams ended up setting 
personal records that day. Along 
with Burciaga's fast 5-K time, 
Kate Brunner, 

sophomore 
from Haysville, 
would set a 
personal record 
day with 20:52. 
Freshman, Martha 
Avila, Wichita, 
finished 138th 
and freshman, 
Jill McPherron, 
Wichita, crossed 
the line at 172nd.

The Woody Greeno 
Invitational in Lincoln, Neb. would 
mark the first record setting days 
this season for Burciaga as she 
became the fourth fastest Lady 



The two clocked in 
times of 22:07 and 
23:46 respectively- their fastest of 
the season. 

For the men, Langat led the way 
with an 18th place finish after 
running the 8K but was the only 
runner to not set a personal 
record. Abel Assefa, sophomore 
from Olathe, was second on the 
team with a 37th place finish and 
a time of 26:22. It was not only the 
fastest time he's run but also the 
first time he finished second on 
the team. 

"I thought we ran well, it's 
always tough, they say sometimes 
you have a home course advantage 
but sometimes it's even tougher 
because we're busy doing other 
stuff, but overall, I think both teams 
performed well," Coach Becker says.
