    My wife and I enjoyed ournight at Waters Edge verymuch. It is a beautiful bou-tique hotel, and, just as withany new enterprise, we havean early opportunity to fieldtest the accommodations and,if necessary, make minor ad-justments to ensure the bestcustomer experience possi-ble, Breuder said.Its been great, hospitalitymanagement student JenniferKirkby tells the Courier.

    Point CounterPointts time to hang up theworld police role thatAmerica has been touting

    for decades. The oppressivementality has caused violentbacklash and resistance in thepast.

    Face it, democratic policiesmay not be ideal for certaincountries and to continuepushing it will only cause fric-tion in the future.

    The priority should be thesafety of Americanlives. To roll thedice and attempt to funnelhigh-risk individuals througha clunky justice system in thename of democracy not onlyjeopardizes civilians but is ar-guably unethical.

    In a volatile environment,the time lost pursuing terror-ists into apprehension whenelimination is the safer oddscould be fatal for troops sta-tioned in those areas.

    Furthermore, using eye foran eye reasoning, those who

    commit inhumane crimesagainst the innocent shouldnot be given the same humanrights they clearly oppose.While it is important to main-tain a fair and just standard,the immediate safety of thosepotentially in danger shouldtrump political ideologies.

    Terrorism is not a domesticcrime but a military one thatalmost always has interna-tional ramifications, therefore,

    the prime suspectsshould be brought

    down in a global effort, notconfined to a single countryslaws, punishable by death ifthey cannot be extracted harm-lessly.

    Those opposed to the funda-mentals of democracy shouldnot be trivialized by the demo-cratic process, its pointless.

    The focus should remain onprevention and elimination ofviolent organizations in orderto protect citizens rather thanto preserve a global image.

    urdering a high-risk individualwithout granting

    them a fair trial is a sin toevery eye. When an Americanborn citizen decides to makerash decisions against theirown country, they should bepunished accordingly.

    The right to a fair trial hasbeen granted ever since theidea of a punishment systemwas established. The safety ofAmerican lives is apriority for every-one. By putting a high risk in-dividual through a fair trialsystem, everyone is grantedtheir freedom.

    American citizens can livehappy knowing that that indi-vidual is going through a judi-cial system that has workedever since mankind faced theearth.

    Democratic policies havebeen ideal for every countryand has been proven tostrengthen the country in all

    aspects. Through a democracyand a fair trial, every individ-ual is granted their right tofreedom.

    Human rights and moralityhave always been provenright in the past. With one ofthe top justice systems in theworld, putting an enemythrough a democracy-basedsystem ensures that they willbe dealt with accordingly.Knowing that a high risked

    individual is goingthrough a fair and

    right trial secures citizensthoughts that they are livingwithin a safe justice systemand that the proper authorityfigures will handle the situa-tion to the best of their ability.

    The old saying, If it aintbroke, dont fix it has alwaysbeen proven to be correct. Ajustice system that has beenworking forever shouldnt bechanged and every individualshould be granted the right toa fair trial.

    Should enemies of the state have the right to a fair trial?


    Researched by Josh Tolentino, Sports Editor Researched by Shawn Mukherji, Graphics EditorPointCounterPoint topics are selected, researched and written by the staff of the Courier and aim to reflect differing opinions on

    the same subject. The opinions expressed do not necessarily reflect the opinions of the author.



    As a student newspaper,we have an obligation to thepublic. Whether its the stu-dent body, college communityor employees, we do our bestas community college journal-ists to provide credible newsand report accurately onnewsworthy events and is-sues around campus.

    In the Oct. 7 issue of theCourier in the sports sectionwe ran a story headlined,Coach Kelly leaves team dueto serious illness, playershope for speedy recovery.This story was published touphold this obligation to thepublic.

    Mens soccer head coach,Jim Kelly has been absent forthe past month due to a seri-ous medical condition.

    In our coverage of this un-fortunate situation, the soccercoaching staff have criticizedthe Courier staff, citing thathis health was a private mat-

    ter and we were wrong topublish the story. However,we couldnt ignore the obvi-ous public displays of prayerand sentiments for Kelly atsoccer games.

    The college is a public insti-tution, and soccer games arepublic events in which any-one can attend, and journalis-tically the Courier needed toreport on it.

    Not surprisingly,fans who knew aboutKellys illness ques-tioned why they hadseen nothing about it in thepaper. The public has a rightto know what happened to abeloved COD icon.

    The official Facebook pagefor the mens soccer team,College of DuPage MensSoccer, posted a commentabout Kellys condition with alink for more information onKellys diagnosed condition,leukemia, on May 9.

    The word about Kellys con-dition was already publiclyacknowledged on Facebookand discussed at games.

    Yet athletics officials still railthe Courier on its coverage ofKelly.

    The coaches of many uni-versities are constantly underthe spotlight for good andbad.

    For example, PennState University headfootball coach Joe Pa-ternos health is beingmonitored hourly, up

    to the point where his move-ments from the sideline to thecoaches box are reported bythe media during games.

    The Courier applied profes-sional standards of journalismwhile writing the story andhad no intention to harmKellys character. We reportedon something that was a legit-imate concern to players andfans.

    Knowing the serious med-ical condition of a person ofpublic interest and not report-ing it to the public runs con-trary to the function of anynewspaper.

    The Couriers coverage hadthe support of many playerson the mens soccer team,who were open to givingstatements and commentingon Kelly and his illness.

    The public posting on Face-book already drew attentionto Kellys medical condition.But it was our job to explain itto the public. It was necessaryto write the article and informthe public about what wasgoing on by further research-ing the topic.

    While the Courier staff de-fends its coverage on Kellysillness, we wish him the bestand fastest recovery, and hopeto see him return to thebench, adding to his record-setting legacy at COD.

  • Tuesday, The InternationalCuisine class at the collegehosted the first of their Inter-national Cuisine Dinners. Stu-dents of the program preparedand served dishes fromaround the world, givingthem their first taste of whatits like to cook for a diversefine dining restaurant.

    The menus are complex,but they provide a good chal-lenge for the students, Coor-dinator of Culinary andHospitality ManagementChristopher Thielman said. Itwas exactly this challengethat initially drew some stu-dents into the program.

    I had looked at other culi-nary programs, from RobertMorris to Kendall, culinarystudent Rita Majeski said, butI found just what I was look-ing for at COD. Majeski citedthe colleges great hands-onexperience and her comfortwith the chefs as her mainreasons for joining the col-leges culinary program.

    International Cuisine servesup a five-dinner series thisfall semester, with each fea-turing a different theme.Tuesdays theme was Okto-ber Fest. Diners were givenfive entrees to choose from:

    smoked salmon, filet of bass,baked bass, Germanbratwurst and pork withmushrooms. They were alsoserved with specific winesand beers to complement theculinary experience.

    In addition to InternationalCuisine Dinners, The ClassicalFrench Cuisine class offers upclassical French based dishesfor those looking for more finedining opportunities.

    The students preparing themeals for the French CuisineDinners are more advanced andare at the end of their degrees,Thielman said. The textbook forthis course provides studentswith insight into the recipes ofone of the most renownedFrench chefs of all time, Au-guste Escoffier.

    Escoffiers recipes are de-

    signed to be used as a guideits expected that students puttheir own twist on the recipes,Thielman said.

    However, students will not beworking in the Waterleaf restau-rant full-time. That job belongsto its executive chef, Jean-LouisClerc who will be running thekitchen at Waterleaf.

    I have worked all over,from France to Switzerland athigh end restaurants, Clercsaid, I have a very good un-derstanding of how theserestaurants run.

    Clerc has high hopes for theWaterleaf, wanting to developthe restaurant into one of thebest in the area. We want toreach the level of other premierrestaurants, Clerc said.

    One of the advantages stu-dents of the culinary classeshave is the chance to take advicefrom Clerc about any questionsthey have about the career field.You must be able to handle allof the different requests of thecustomers, as well as maintainthe freshness and quality ofeach dish, Clerc said of impor-tant traits for a great chef.

    International Cuisine andClassical French Cuisine Din-ners are offered on select Tues-days and Wednesdaysduring the fall semester. Thecost is $40 per plate and $55per plate, respectively.

    Last Monday, the collegewelcomed three new interna-tional students into the CODcommunity. The students,Thomas Theuring, Effi Kin-dermann and Kristine Pfuet-zner, are exchange studentsfrom Germany.

    They are involved in the Con-gress-Bundestag Youth Ex-change (CBYX), a work-studyprogram that is sponsored by theUS and German governments.

    Brbel Thoens-Masghati, aGerman instructor and coor-dinator of CBYX, is excitedabout the opportunity theprogram offers these students.

    This is a cultural exchangefor the students, Thoens-Masghati said, they get toexperience American lifestudents always leave rant-ing and raving about theirstay in America.

    The CBYX is a program thatis offered to students in Amer-ica. They fill out applicationsin hopes of getting chosen tojoin, but spots are limited.Only 75 students in the entirecountry are afforded the op-portunity to go to Germanyand engage in the full-yearwork-study program.

    According to Thoens-Mas-ghati some people whowerent involved with the col-

    lege contacted her for infor-mation about the program.Some people would call inand ask about the CBYX afterseeing a headline about flashon the marquee outside the col-lege, Thoens-Masghati said.

    In exchange for the Ameri-can students that go to Ger-many to work, learn thelanguage and experience Ger-man lifestyle, German stu-dents come to America to geta taste of the culture.

    The German exchange stu-dents are studying at the col-lege for the fall semester andare looking forward to accom-plishing their goals. Pfuetzner

    said she wants to use her timeat the college figure what shewants to study. Theuring andKindermann said they areready to try out new stuffand meet new people.

    Many of the German stu-dents do not believe thatAmerica is too big of a cultureshock for them.

    The only thing really dif-ferent is Wal-Mart, Theuringsaid, We dont have anythinglike that in Germany.

    The history classes are alsovery different in America be-cause their history is soshort, Kindermann said.

    The students believe that the

    biggest reason for their interestin the program is their chanceto experience their favoriteparts of America. They cite thefriendly people as being thebest part of American culture.

    People are so interested inus. Pfuetzner said, The otherday we were on the train.Some people overheard usspeaking German and startingasking us where were from.

    The students will be stayingwith host families that haveexperience with exchangeprograms. In fact, Theuringshost family recently sent theirson to Germany through thesame CBYX program.

    The McAninch Arts Cen-ters Main Stage filled withfire and passion this past Sun-day as Compaia Flamencaperformed the ancient An-dalusian Gypsy Dance of Fla-menco. This premiere dancetroupe, founded in Madrid,Spain by Jose Porcel, is one ofthe select few troupes to per-form this exhilarating danceform.

    The exact origins of fla-menca are unknown as itcould have many different in-fluences from various cul-tures. The oldest known formto date is called CanteJondo, which captures thesorrows and joys of the Gypsyculture.

    The companys founder andchoreographer, Jose Porcel,has been dancing Andalusianfolk dances and flamencasince he was 13. Ever sincemaking his debut in 1989,Porcel has worked with vari-ous choreographers includingFederico Torres, Jose Granero,Victoria Eugenia and JuanjoLinares. Porcel has lead thecompany on several criticallyacclaimed tours throughoutNorth America.

    The entire company accom-panied by a flautist, percus-sionist, two guitarists and amale and female vocalist,began the evening with a col-orful piece titled ProfoundDance. With lots of move-ment and expression, thecompany readied the audi-ence for the excitement thatawaited them.

    Porcel took the stage himself

    as he donned a short, matadorlike suit. Porcels masterfuldancing captivated the audi-ence with the passion and in-timacy of flamenca.

    Following Porcels interpre-tation of flamenca, the threemale dancers took the stage asthey each displayed their ownunique format. As the musi-cians tempo progressed andthe guitarists transitionedfrom a gentle strum to aharsh, upbeat melody, thedancers too became more ag-gressive in how they danced.

    The dancers took a break asthe musicians were given achance to showcase their truetalent as they performed tra-ditional gypsy music thatholds a Flemish base. Musi-cians were given room for im-provisation as they blendedtogether their own influentialrhythms to set a scene.

    The entire company re-turned to take the stage forThe Beat of Cadiz. Thepiece originated in the 19thcentury in southern Spain andis influenced by traditionalfolk music of Aragon that wasbrought to the region by sol-diers during the War of Inde-pendence. The dance wasfestive and vibrant, suggest-ing a celebration of sorts.

    Following a brief intermis-sion, the piece Passion wasperformed by Porcel and twoof the female dancers. Thedance, a more evolved ver-sion of the tango, was quiteemotional as the two femaledancers compete for Porcelsaffection creating a very sen-sual and romantic atmospherewith dramatic music to top itoff.

    An improvised dance fea-

    turing the whole companywas the next piece to be per-formed. Improvisation is animportant part of Flamencobecause it allows the dancersto freely express themselvesand release every emotionwithin.

    Dress with a Train wasthe prorceeding piece thatshowcased all the femaledancers as they performed thedance. The piece was derivedfrom the mountainous regionof Malagam and featured thedancers elegant movementsas they gracefully executedthe dance with precision. Thedancers wore long, flowing,traditional gypsy gowns forthis cultural piece.

    Before the finale, Porcel tookthe stage for one more soloperformance titled GypsyFire. Porcels second inter-pretation is meant to symbol-ize the Gypsy race and itselegance and lordship. To adda more dramatic flare to hisperformance, Porcel wet hishair so with every swiftmovement a halo of waterarced out across his body. Por-cels approach was very mas-terful and charismatic. Just asthe audience believed he wasfinished, Porcel, already ex-hausted, continued to awe theaudience with even more. Hecontinued his performancewith a passionate smile on hisface that showed his deeplove and passion for the cul-ture.

    The vibrant and colorful fes-tival of a conclusion cele-brated the gypsy culture asthe whole company, includingPorcel, awed MAC patronswith improvised dancing andfestive music.

    Grammy recipient anddaughter of the late greatJohnny Cash, Rosanne Cashrocked the McAninch ArtsCenters Main Stage Fridaywith husband and producerJohn Leventhal as the pairperformed The List. The listwas inspired by a list of the100 greatest country songs herfather handed her when shewas 18.

    At the start of her perform-ance, Cash shared the briefhistory of how the list came tobe. While on tour with her fa-ther, he started asking herwhat country songs she knew.Appalled by her lack ofknowledge of country music,he quickly wrote down a listof the 100 greatest countrysongs and told her, This isyour education. It wasntuntil recently that Cash actu-ally began performing songsoff that very list that she stillhas possession of today. TheList is also the name of her2009 album which features aselection of those essentialsongs.

    To get the audience hyped,Cash first performed ImMovin On by Hank Snow.She continued with songs likeSea of Heartbreak andLong Black Veil which shedescribed to patrons as thecenterpiece of The Listsaying that there wouldntbe any American roots musicwithout this song.

    Cash continued with otherclassics like Motherless Chil-dren, Miss the Mississippiand You as well as some ofher own songs like BurnDown This Town and theGrammy winning I DontKnow Why You Dont WantMe, which ironically enough,is about not winning aGrammy. The duo surprisedaudience members and them-selves as Leventhal started toplay I Dont Know Why YouDont Want Me on piano,with constant bickering be-tween the two adding comicrelief to the performance anddemonstrating the well-bal-anced chemistry the coupleshared.

    Cash paused in betweensongs to talk about herdaughter, Caitlin Cash, hersongwriting career and howshe has been asking hermother for her own list. Cashsaid she feels like she shouldkeep the tradition alive andmaybe one day her daughterwill receive a list of her own.

    The performance concludedwith Bob Dylans Girl Fromthe North Country andHeartaches By the Number.

    Cash and Leventhal werethanked for their performancewith a thunderous applausefrom MAC patrons. After thepair thanked the crowd andwalked off stage the roaringapplause cued an encore. Thecouple couldnt resist andcame back on stage to per-form the popular title track to1993s The Wheel.

    Left: Buildings andGrounds workers un-load the time capsulefrom their work vehi-cle.

    Above: Workers fill in the hole containing the new and improved time capsule on theWest side of the Student Services Center.

    Cynthia Johnson and archivistKay Braulik had been searchinghigh and low for any evidence ofthe colleges time capsule and, tono avail, decided to create one oftheir own. What first started off asan undertaking for just the classi-fied staff soon grew into a cam-pus-wide project. The idea waspresented to the board of trustees,and with their approval, a timecapsule was underway. Whenconstruction started on CompassHill, Johnson soon found the ap-proximate location of a time cap-sule buried in 1992. Using a metaldetector, the same groundskeep-ers who buried it back in 92 dugit back up in an effort to relocate itfrom Compass Hill. They found itfilled with water due to a lack ofproper sealing and its contents se-verely damaged.

    The capsule had been buried inhonor of the colleges 25th an-niversary with the aim of beingopened by those alive and well in2017. So with that goal in mind,Johnson and her team set forth tocreate a new time capsule for thecollege, capturing the times inwhich we live. Students and fac-ulty from all over campus sent intheir ideas which were then dis-tilled by a committee.

    Its contents included, amongother things, a video archive ofwhere well be in 2050. Johnsonset up a camera outside the libraryand asked students where theythought we will be 48 years fromnow. One of the more memorablequotes being Wherever it is, Ihope they dont have Ugg bootsthere. Ironic, considering thetime capsule actually contains apair of Ugg boots, an unfortunateyet unmistakable fashion trend ofour times.

    he Mens soccer team at-tacked the Malcolm X Col-lege Hawks relentlessly onTuesday, shutting them out11-0.

    From kickoff to the final whistle, theChaps pressured the Hawks defense.The Chaps had a 20 to 6 shot-ratio ongoal advantage, the result of a harsh of-fensive attack.

    Just two minutes into the game, Chapsforwards Sergio Realegeno and GregEfiom were in the Hawks defensivezone. Efiom dribbled past severalHawks defenders and found a wideopen Realegeno who struck the ball intothe net to put the Chaps up early 1-0.

    Three minutes later the Chaps for-wards were on the attack again. Run-ning nearly the exact same offense,Realegeno juked in and out throughHawks defenders and found Efiom whowas wide open to the left of the goal.Efiom blasted the ball just past theHawk goalkeeper to increase the Chapslead to 2-0.

    Not even a minute later, the Chapscontinued pouring on the goals.Realegeno crossed an excellent ball toChaps team captain and midfielderJames King. King headed the ball justabove the Hawk goalkeeper, resultingin Kings first goal of the season, put-ting the Chaps up 3-0

    Coach (Fajkus) gave us a talk aboutthe level of play this team was,Realegeno said, He told us not to con-cede any goals and to get our goalsquickly and done.

    Assistant coach William Fajkus game-plan worked as planned as the Chapspressured the Hawks early and often,

    shutting them out, while putting upmany quick, early goals.

    In the eighteenth minute Chaps Mid-fielder Alex Stafford was able to dribblethrough the Hawk defense and foundhimself with just the keeper to beat.Stafford faked the Hawk goalie left andgently tapped the ball to the right to putthe Chaps up 4-0.

    Nearly seconds later, Stafford was onthe attack again. Stafford jetted past theHawks and blasted the ball to the topright of the goal to increase the rout ofthe Hawks 5-0.

    In the twenty first minute, ChapsGoalkeeper Jovanni Castanon puntedthe ball to midfield where midfielderRobert Gunderson played a perfect balloff his chest, laying the ball out in frontof him where there was nothing but

    By Josh TolentinoSports Editor


    The womens soccer team lost to nation-ally ranked Parkland College on Tuesdayas the Cobras defeated the Lady Chaps 4-1.

    The Cobras established their attack earlyand often in the first half as the LadyChaps defense struggled.

    The Lady Chaps were able to force theCobras to commit many mental mistakesresulting in seven first half offside calls forthe Cobras.

    Although the Cobras committed sevenfirst half offsides, they pressured the ballon the Lady Chaps side of the field fornearly the entire game resulting in 43shots at goal compared to the Lady Chaps7 shots at goal.

    The Cobras head coach Josh Alford

    credits the Lady Chaps to limiting theiropportunities in the first half.

    At halftime, I just told our girls to settledown, Alford said, After we settleddown a bit and played an easier ball,things started to go our way.

    With a late Cobra goal in the 44thminute, the Lady Chaps entered halftimetrailing 1-0.

    After buckling down at halftime, the Co-bras came out of the half storming theLady Chaps.
