’Dogs win nail biter

September 19, 2014

The Truman football team used two touchdowns from senior players to propel them to their first win of the season, defeating the NAIA’s No. 23 team Langston University 17-12 during the Bulldogs’ home opener.

Freshman kicker Nick Dolezal put the first points on the board with a field goal. After a blocked field goal by sophomore Chris Stanton, senior Garrett White busted a 58-yard rushing touchdown to give Truman a 10-0 advantage mid-way through the 2nd quarter.

Langston got on the board just before halftime during a 9-yard run from sophomore quarterback Mark Wright. The extra point was botched to give the Bulldogs a 10-6 halftime lead.

The Bulldog defense shined during the 3rd quarter, not allowing any points with their “bend but not break” defense. Another botched field goal snap by Langston and a goal line stand by the Truman defense kept the game 10-6 at the end of the 3rd. […]

Abuse brings light to problem

September 11, 2014

As a kid, I didn’t really follow sports any more than a little girl without cable TV would be expected to. But I did know of Kobe Bryant — one of the three NBA players I was aware of. I remember sitting in a car on a trip with my older brother and saying how I liked Kobe Bryant. He turned to me and said, “No, Anna, Kobe Bryant is a bad guy.”

Although eight-year-old Anna didn’t understand about the details of Bryant’s sexual assault case, she did know her brother always was right. I still get a sick feeling when I think about Bryant, and despite him never being convicted, I never have been impressed with his accomplishments. […]

April 17, 2014

Truman State senior Josh Goldstein is teaming up with communication and film studies professor Marilyn Yaquinto for a new class fall 2014. The class, aimed at film study minors, will allow students to lead the production of their own 30 minute film that will be completed at the end of the semester.

Taylor Thompson: So what filmmaking experience have you had prior to this film?
Josh Goldstein: I took an adaptations course, JINS actually, From Page to Screen, my junior year, which was really cool. For our final project we shot a trailer, as if a movie was actually going to be released. For my fraternity I do social media, and I was Rush Chair a few times, so I always produce our rush videos. So I have experience editing software and that kind of stuff. I’ve always written stories and scripts in my free time — just something I love to do. […]
