8 November 10, 2004 Entertainment The Rambler Hall exhibits Sighted Images Rita Vigil STAFF WRITER Imagine living every day without the sense of sight. You would never see a sunset, never watch a flower bloom, and even something as mun- ______ dane as watching television would be impos- sible. Now imagine how much more fright- ening it would be to live in a world where you are emotionally blind. In this world, the psychological sight is impaired as opposed to the physical. —— Kit Hall, professor of art, explores the themes of metaphorical sight and the idea of blindness not as a physical condition, but as an emotional or psy- chological impairment in her exhibit, Sighted Images. "It is not about liter- al blindness. It has a broader definition," said Hall. "It's also about memory, looking back- wards and insight." Hall's exhibit state- ment explains that in 1990, the Musee du Louvre inaugurated a series of exhibitions cre- ated by well-known indi- viduals. In the first exhi- bition,...

4 November 17, 2004 Campus Life The Rambler Students, faculty travel to foreign land Global Scholars program kicks off in Thailand last summer Commentary In July, Texas Wesleyan sent four faculty and two students 9,000 miles beyond the classroom to the Southeast Asian country of Thailand for three weeks of saturation in a culture abounding in hospitality and steeped in ancient customs. President Hal Jeffcoat arranged the trip, jumpstarting the newly established Global Scholars program at Wesleyan that provides an aca- demically enriching opportunity for Wesleyan faculty as they travel abroad. "The Global Scholars program at Wesleyan aims to enrich faculty by enabling those with research interests in the broad area of international studies to spend some time with other Wesleyan faculty at venues outside the United States," Jeffcoat said. "The first such trip occurred last summer when faculty and two students went to Thailand. We chose Thailand in part due to the long rela- tionship w...

The Rambler Campus Life November 17, 2004 5 Alumna, class of '31, visits campus Hank Sinatra STAFF WRITER It is an old adage that is generally accepted as true: You can't go home again. Well, 94-year-old Margaret Halsell Parker did. This bright, attractive, lucid lady with a twinkle in her eye and an infectious smile came "home" to Texas Wesleyan to visit the campus she hadn't seen in a while. Parker graduated from then Texas Woman's College in 1931. A lot has changed. "I cannot believe the beauty, the clean- ness and the newness. They [the buildings] have all been refreshed," said Parker. "Everything is just beautiful around here." Parker originally came to Fort Worth from Lubbock, Texas, to study violin after one year at Texas Tech University. Her violin teacher moved here, and Parker followed. "The Depression made it difficult. It was all my family could do to keep me in school. The professors were outstanding, and I received a good education in violin," said Parker. "I received ...

Texas Wesleyan met many new faces and a greatly energized student body. The Student Life office played a big part in provid- ing students with fun and exciting extracurricular activities to offset the tedious task of studying. The season for flag football, one of the intra- mural activities that felt its share of adversity, was, nevertheless, a success. "All in all, we had a good time this semester," said AAron Whaley, coor- dinator of intramural activi- ties. The season that began Sept. 18 ended seven weeks later on Nov. 6 with the Legal Eagles winning the crown - that coveted trophy for which four other teams competed. "We had some prob- lems earlier in the season with referees not showing up, but we worked every- thing out," said Whaley. A...

The Rambler Sports November 17, 2004 7 < m ... Grand Ram winners named Patrick Johnson SPORTS EDITOR After weeks of surveys probing the minds of Wesleyan students, faculty and staff to find out who are Texas Wesleyan's most recognizable athletes, the votes are in. The results have been evaluated and reveal Rene Mercado as the Grand Ram and Vanessa Marianne Urteaga as the Lady Grand Ram. Mercado, a third year leader of the men's soccer team, is a junior mass com- munication major. He was born in Acapulco, Mexico 22 years ago. He wears No. 3 for the Rams after his older brother who also played soccer under the same number. "1 feel kind of proud. I didn't think I was the most popular athlete. I knew 1 was in it, but honestly thought I was not going to win so I completely forgot about it," Mercado said. "I'm an easy person to get along with so I guess that's why peo- ple know me." Urteaga will begin her second season with the Lady Rams' softball team in the spring. She came to Wesley...

Medlock poses such a bold question in order to give the answer to his audiences with a varied number of enchanting and humorous songs.

Massey, who is in charge of all improvements to the two production studios in the basement of the library, worked wonders on the abandoned rooms. "Black carpet has been installed on the walls of both studios to reduce echo and reverb," said Massey. He said that this improvement alone will "improve audio recording fidelity." Dr. Benjamin Hale, professor of mass com- munication and the primary production class pro- fessor, said he thinks the studios were in desper- ate need of improvement. "This update will provide a facility that is more like what is used in commercial television production situations," he said. "It will provide a lot more potential for complex vi...

Known as the world's largest Western parade, according to the Stock Show Web site, the 109-year- old tradition had 222 entries this year. This is the first year for Texas Wesleyan to participate in the parade. Approximately 25 participants marched in the parade, including rep- resentatives from the volleyball team, Sigma Kappa Lambda and faculty and staff. "It was a great experience for me because I got a chance to represent my school and help put Wesleyan on the map," said Lyndsey Jones, a soph- omore education major.

The Rambler Campus Life January 26, 2005 5 Chronicles, from page 4 I'm trying to stick to pure juices, water and milk. I no longer eat past 11 p.m. If I go to a fast food joint, I only get grilled chicken or fish items. I just think that if I cut out the bad parts of my diet and add to the healthy parts, my body will only thank me later. I'm not trying to starve myself. I have a 21 -hour class load and hold down three jobs. I know I need all the fuel I can get. This being said, I'm sleeping much more regularly. I'm actually averaging about seven hours of sleep each night now, which is a vast improvement over my usual four to five hours a night. I plan to swim for at least three days a week for at least half an hour. I'm going to try to run a few miles at least twice a week, but if it's cold, I might just swim or ride the bike in the weight room. Regardless, I plan on working out hard for at least five days a week. I'm also planning on buying an Ab Lounger, which will target my stoma...

' 6 January 26, 2005 Sports The Rambler Rams now ranked 22nd in nation, according to latest NAIA poll Phil McNeary CAMPUS UFE EDITOR The Texas Wesleyan University men's basketball team is soaring high these days and the nation has taken notice. After playing a tough 18 games thus far, the Rams find themselves ranked 22nd in the nation. "Coach told us about the ranking but also said that we still have many more tough games to play," said senior forward Tommy Johnson. "We feel good about being national- ly ranked, but we know it's going to be tough to keep it." Wesleyan started the season off winning just five of their first 10 games. Pre-season polls had the Rams ranked seventh in the con- ference, and their play was a true testament to that. "Our conference, despite any losing records, is very dangerous," said senior for- ward Vince Williams. "Anyone at anytime can get beat even if you stand alone at the top of the rankings." Williams, a native of Los Angeles, ex- plained how the Ra...

His impressive play has caught the attention of the confer- ence offices of late, as he has earned conference player of the week honors three times in the last four weeks it has been awarded dating back to Dec. 20. Hunt was beat out for the honor for the week of Jan.3 because his teammate, senior forward Tommy Johnson, was named player of the week. Johnson also went on to earn the same prestigious award from the NAIA as national player of the week. Hunt, the Stephen F. Austin State transfer, is fast becom- ing one of the most deadly athletes in the Red River Athletic Conference thanks to his tenacious hustle, amazing athletic ability and his on-point marksmanship from the field. Opponents have enough trouble dealing with the Rams' offensive potent...

The two-act opera by Gian Carlo Menotti will be performed at 7:30 p.m. on Jan. 27-29 in the historic Dillow House. The Medium, an opera performed in English, is a tale about a very peculiar family who earns money through fabricating elaborate stances. The 20th century work is considered, in the realm of opera, to be one of the most impor- tant of its time. Reminiscent of the early 20th century, the performance will be held in the Dillow House across from Polytechnic United Methodist Church on Rosedale Street, rather than the typical concert hall or stage. Dale Morehouse, a professor in the music depart- ment, applauds Saxton's plan to hold the concert in the Dillow House. "It's a great idea and very cre- ative," said More- house. "Choosing an alternative loca- tion breaks down walls with the au...
