What Mount Union is saying about Trayvon Martin

Posted on 23 April 2012 by Rosa LaMattina

By: Olivia Holt & Rosa LaMattina 

The University of Mount Union students are speaking out and fighting for justice because of the murder of Trayvon Martin.

The incident that caught the world’s attention happened on February 26, 2012 in Sanford, Florida. Trayvon Martin was a 17-year-old African American who was walking in a gated community to his father’s girlfriend’s house where he was staying. George Zimmerman is a 28-year-old man who was on community watch at the time of the shooting. The confusing, tragedy happened at approximately 7:12 pm.

Police investigators have listened to 911 calls, testimony and also the personal story of Zimmerman. Unfortunately, Martin’s story cannot be told. Many cases where murder is involved, the stories become clouded and misleading. Investigators are working hard to find justice.

Mount Union’s Contribution

Mount is not alone in the world trying to fight for justice. Protests are happening around the nation, especially in Florida where the incident is hitting home. Mount students are also doing their part to stay involved and fight for what is right.

Students organized a “Hoods Up” day to honor Martin. Martin’s hood was up on the night of the murder which Zimmerman said was, “suspicious behavior.” The students spread the word about the event through social media sites such as, Facebook and Twitter.

Sophomore, Amanda Turner was invited to the event and participated by wearing her hood up throughout the day.

“I think it’s good that the campus can organize an event and band together against what’s wrong,” she said. “I also think it was a good way to let other students know what happened so they can help fight for justice.”

Turner was right about the event spreading the word around campus. Students put their hoods up throughout the day after talking to fellow students and learning about the event.

Sophomore, Laura Coxe is a student that did not know about the event until later in the day.

“I started realizing around lunch time that there were a lot of people with their hoods up,” she said. “After I finally asked someone what was going on I immediately put my hood up and felt proud to be a part of this campus that feels so strongly about certain issues and we’re not afraid to show those feelings.”

On April 11, 2012 a Special Prosecutor filed for second degree murder against George Zimmerman who turned himself in.

The students at Mount were angered and frustrated by the events because justice was not being served until the Special Prosecutor made the report.  Zimmerman is of mixed ethnic backgrounds and Martin was African American. Speculations surfaced about racism being a key factor to the murder but it may never be proven. However, the speculation is raising questions in other cases also.

Zimmerman vs. Watts & England 

On April 06, 2012 in Tulsa, Oklahoma a shooting occurred that left three people dead and two others wounded. All the victims were African American and suspected to be targeted by the shooters. Jake England, 19, and Alvin Watts, 33, went on a shooting spree against the African American community of Tulsa.

USA Today wrote an article about the shootings that occurred in Oklahoma and Florida, connecting them both to racism.

“The charges were announced two days after second-degree murder charges were brought in another racially charged case, the shooting death of 17-year-old Trayvon Martin in Florida,“ the article stated.

“That case sparked nationwide outrage and weeks of protests over the delay in charging neighborhood watchman George Zimmerman, who shot the unarmed teenager in a gated community on Feb. 26. Zimmerman has claimed self-defense.”

Sophomore, Taylor Webb heard about the Oklahoma Shootings and connected it to the Trayvon Martin case.

“After I heard about the Oklahoma Shooting the Trayvon Martin murder came into my mind,” she said. “I wondered if it was a reaction and also if racism was the main reasoning and if other shootings are going to occur.”

Arguments are continually rising about how justice is being served in both cases. The Trayvon Martin murder is still an on-going process. Zimmerman was charged with second degree murder but recently released on a 150,000 bond. The Oklahoma shooters, Watts and England are facing possible death penalties and their bond is 9.16 million each.

Sophomore, Jackie Profera, “I don’t understand why there is such a difference in the punishment and the amount of the bonds between each case,” she said. “Murder is murder.”

Although this is only an assumption, a strong argument for racism can be made in each case. Investigators and prosecutors are working diligently to bring justice to each victim. The families and communities that were affected throughout the nation by the murders can breathe easier when justice is served.

Pranks at Mount

Posted on 23 April 2012 by Georgia McCartney

by Sydney Mihailoff, Brittany Papp and Georgia McCartney

Pranking people is supposed to be a fun and harmless joke and students at Mount Union are no stranger to doing it. Pulling pranks on other students can be funny, but when does it go too far?  Not only do students now enjoy pulling pranks but even students from the 50’s did it.

In 2008 when Kelly Evans, 21, Health major, from Twinsburg, Ohio, was a freshman her floor in King Dorm pulled a prank on her.  They put little Dixie cups full of water all over the floor around her bed so she was unable to get out.  It was pretty harmless but she had 5 a.m. practice the next day.

Kaleigh Stanley, 22, Marketing and Quantitative Analysis major, also from Twinsburg, Ohio, was a part of this prank. “Everyone on our floor woke up just to watch her, it was funny and she was a good sport about it, even at 5 a.m.,”

Another prank was pulled on Evans that was less harmful by the boys that lived in her dorm.  They wrote on the rock “Kool-aid did it,”  Kool-aid was the nickname given to Evans at the time of the incident.

“I walked by the rock the next day and was just so confused and just started busting out laughing” Evans said.

The students from the King dorm are not the only ones who like pulling pranks.  McCready hall residents are known to enjoy a good prank themselves. Faith Hoschar, a house keeper from McCready hall, told a story about students pranking their community educator.  While their community educator was sleeping, they saran wrapped his entire door.

“I have no idea where they found saran wrap that big, but it was one of the funniest pranks I had seen here.  All the boys had their heads poked out of the doorway to watch him wake up and get through it,” said Hoschar.  She went on to tell a story about one of Mount Union’s oldest alumni’s pulling pranks back when he was at Mount during the 50’s.  “His best prank was when he stole an ape and put it in a tux at the podium for graduation,” said Hoschar.

In more recent times, more serious pranks have been pulled.  Tom Gaskins, 21, music education major, from Canton, Ohio reported the story of a streaker.  “The streaker ran outside the Phi Kappa Tau fraternity house and towards the campus where they were promptly caught in the parking lot of the new town houses at around 2 a.m.,” said Gaskins.  Gaskins said that the streaker would prefer to remain anonymous.

Three Women’s Basketball Players Reach 1,000 Career Points

Posted on 23 April 2012 by Kinsey Douglass

Previous Career Scorers thanks to the Women's Basketball website

By: Russell Castellucci, Kinsey Douglass

UMU’s women’s basketball players Rosa LaMattina, Amanda Rose and Kori Wiedt scored over 1,000 career points in the 2012 season. Only 13 players have scored over 1,000 career points in Mount Union history and this is the first time three have reached 1,000 in the same season.

All three girls started playing while young, LaMattina in sixth grade, Rose in third grade and Wiedt in fifth grade, but they all got started in different ways.

“I didn’t want to play initially, my friend wanted to go play and she begged me to play so I played, and I realized I liked it,” said LaMattina.

“My dad actually played basketball here at Mount Union, and my mom played basketball as well when they were younger, so they wanted my sister and me to play and so they signed me up for rec leagues and it just kind of took off from there,” Rose said.

“I think I want to play because my sister started playing, I was really big into soccer, I’d rather go to the gym and kick the basketball around, then my dad yelled at me so I started to shoot it,” said Weidt.

What Makes an Accomplishment like this Possible

An accomplishment like this comes with lots of hard work, dedication, and many hours of practicing, according to the players.

“When we’re in season we practice a good three hours of practice with lifting, and then there’s really no offseason so like preseason we’re in the gym every single day or lifting or we’re working out and then offseason or postseason we’re in the gym lifting,” said LaMattina.

All three felt the team around them was very important and played a big part in helping them reach their personal achievement.

“When you have people that you can count on and you know that they’re going to come through for you, you don’t really need anything else,” said LaMattina.

“Everyone on our team wants us to win as a whole, so we really support each other and work every day to make each other better,” said Rose.

“Our chemistry is amazing on and off the court and that’s what helps to bring us together a lot, and the fact that they know my strengths and weaknesses kind of just made me better. The fact that they know my weaknesses, they kind of help me to bring them up and my strengths, they know I’m a shooter, so they’re going to kick it to me and help me score, or help me do whatever, so they just kind of help in every way,” Wiedt said.

The Significance of this Accomplishment

“It’s a good honor, I didn’t really think I would get it because I didn’t get it during my high school time,” said LaMattina, “but to be acknowledged for it is a good feeling.”

“It was really great, it wasn’t something that I reached in high school, so it was nice knowing that the hard work came out on an individual level, but I was glad I was able to share it with my teammates this year and it was so special because all of them play a part in our team success,” Rose said.

“I mean everyone says it’s such a great thing or whatever, and I think so too, but I never really looked at it during the year, I was looking more at winning,” said Weidt, “not many people get it, so I’m proud of that but I couldn’t have done it without my teammates.”

Plans After Mount

After graduating from University of Mount Union, both LaMattina and Wiedt hope to continue playing basketball. LaMattina hopes to play overseas or in the WNBA.

“I’m kind of looking into combines to play and I have played in a couple showings already, but if not then I’m going to look into criminal justice fields, I major in biology and minor in chemistry so I’m looking at more forensic stuff in the lab,” Wiedt said.

Rose plans on continuing her education at The Ohio State University.

“I’m going to Ohio State, I’m going to their Fisher College of Business to get my masters in labor and human resources, so it’s a two year program and I’ll be a grad assistantship in their office of career management,” she said.

Value of Basketball

Regardless of their future plans in life, all three girls agree basketball taught them valuable life skills.

“I think basketball taught me time management, and the importance of being dedicated and committed to something, knowing that if it’s important to you, it’s not going to come easy so just a lot of lessons necessary of the court that I learned from having to play and put so much time in,” Rose said.

“A lot, that’s what you’re going to take the most from here, the relationships and your work ethic, I know a lot of people here, coaches pushed us more than we ever thought, I know that’s going to be a huge part, and self reliance, actually having to work by yourself or do something by yourself and not depend on somebody else, that’s huge,” according to Wiedt.
