A few of the businesses involved in the event included Brothers Bar & Grill, Queer Chocolatier, White Rabbit Used Books, Roots Burger Bar and Art Mart. ERIC PRITCHETT, DNBall State, local businesses work to bring the Village together. Rohith Rao News Editor While part of the reason for the event was to draw interest from students, some business owners and community leaders have expressed hope that the $2 Tour of the Village will be the first of many occasions that brings stakeholders together.As president of the Riverside-Normal Neighborhood Association, which oversees businesses in the Village, Heather Williams said the Aug. 24 event was an opportunity to begin collecting data and create a more united Village with both a business directory and business association. Williams also serves as the program manager of Ball State’s Building Better Neighborhoods in the Office of Community Engagement, and she added that Ball State is interested in helping support the Village as part of its Next Muncie initiative. “We really want a thriving Village so the students have a space for them — like acommunity,” she said. Williams attributed the idea of a Village business association to Morgan Roddy, the owner of Queer Chocolatier. Prior to the $2 Tour of the Village, Roddy said she and the other owners were looking for ways to “instill a positive sense of momentum” for businesses in the Village and wanted to create “dialogue with people.” “We were working, kind of like throwing ideas out about how we might do that, and then we thought, ‘Well, gosh, maybe we could kick this off by throwing an event,’” Williams said.See VILLAGE, 06Student shares stormchasing experience Liz Szewczyk, senior meteorology major and forecaster for Cardinal Weather and NewsLink, spent time over summer break chasing storms.

WHAT’SNEWS.COMMUNITY POLICING Charles Melton Assistant News EditorAlong with maintaining security and enforcing regulations at Ball State, the University Police Department (UPD) also attempts to strengthen its presence within the community. Through events like the Citizens Police Academy, Lunch with a Cop and the recently concluded Dunk-a-Cop, UPD helps connect its officers with students and neighboring communities. The implementation of these programs sparked from interest or requests from the community on how the department could help police relations, said Director of Safety Jim Duckham. “We just try to really provide an opportunity to increase our engagement and each year, we’ve tried to do more and more,” Duckham said. While Duckham said he is unable to disclose specifics at this time, new programs and events are in the works, including ones suggested by resident assistants and students. When it comes to watching the community, Duckham said UPD patrols not only the campus, but the neighborhoods “immediately adjacent” to campus as well. He said UPD’s boundaries range from McGalliard Road to White River Boulevard and Wheeling Avenue to Tillotson Avenue.BALL STATE UPD’S JURISDICTIONWhen there aren’t any programs happening or the officers aren’t on vehicle patrol, all UPD officers are expected to perform a foot patrol on campus, Duckham said. Sgt. Michael Lucas said officers “are encouraged to do at least 30 minutes of foot patrol per shift,” but he could be on his feet longer than that, depending on the number of calls he gets and the amount of staffing for the day. “It gives me an opportunity to get out of the police car and have face-to-face interaction with people outside the realm of a call for service,” Lucas said. “Some of our officers sometimes take advantage of being out of their car and sit down and eat with students in one of our dining facilities.” During dinner hours, Lucas said he typically likes to conduct a foot patrol in a busy area like the Atrium or McKinley Avenue. When asked how students could help make a UPD officer’s foot patrol easier, Lucas said in an email that he wouldn’t describe these foot patrol “as hard or not enjoyable.” “Historically, though, when people see the police, they automatically think someone is in trouble. Sometimes that may be the case, but we use our foot patrols to be visible and available to our community,” Lucas said. “These things may mean different things to different people; visibility deters criminal activity and promotes a0508.29.19DNNewsUPD helps build a presence in the community.Dennis Collier, sophomore telecommunications major, throws a softball during the Dunk-a-Cop fundraiser Aug. 22, 2019, near the Scramble Light.

Travis Stephens said events like Dunk-ACop and foot patrols help the public see the officers “as humans.” “[You] can always stop and say ‘Hi’ to prettymuch any one of us you know,” Stephens said. “We like interacting and meeting new people, and that’s why we love this job.” Contact Charles Melton with comments at or on Twitter @Cmelton144.McGalliard Roading eel Whcovers more than just the university’s campus.e enu AvUPD JurisdictionBall State CampusTillotson AvenueStop by for a var Boule iver eR t i WhdEMILY WRIGHT, DN; ©MAPCREATOR.IOSliceGREEKSPIZZERIA.COM • (765) 284-4900 • In the Village: 1600 W.

The event was held to promote local businesses and strengthen the Village community. ERIC PRITCHETT, DNAs a business owner, Roddy said, the turnover rate in the Village is “mildly troublesome, but not extremely troublesome,” citing Art Mart, Ultra Image Tanning and White Rabbit Used Books — all of which have been in the Village for more than 20 years. “I think we need to take a balanced approach at looking at the businesses here in the Village and their tenure,” she said. “The ones that do come and go on the quick end of it, it does make me question maybe decisions that are made by either landlords or any city incentives to come into the Village.” Derek Edwards, owner of White Rabbit Used Books, has been in the Village for roughly 30 years and said he has seen businesses come and go “in waves.” While there are periods with many empty buildings, Edwards said, new businesses eventually move in and “revitalize the Village.” “That just seems to be the way it goes — every so often there’s a downslump, then they’ll come right back up again,” Edwards said. “[The Village] has been here since the early ‘20s, and I think it’s here to stay. We’re not going anywhere.” Roddy said the Village still lacks an “identity,” something she has seen other college towns successfully establish. She said Ball State “could flex its muscles” in the Village if it wanted to. “The Village is a location, but, at this moment, maybe there’s not a strong sense of pride of place, and maybe we can build that by organizing, by celebrating, by showcasing,” Roddy said. “We could find a way to better integrate that relationship of town and gown at the Village.”Live music could be heard at Village Green Records Aug. 24, 2019, in Muncie during the $2 Tour of the Village. Local bands performed at different times throughout the event. ERIC PRITCHETT, DN Currently, Karen Fisher, owner of Art Mart, said the Village is a “unique little place” students should want to utilize for many reasons, including convenience. “They can get on buses and go to other parts of the city, but they can walk down here,” Fisher said. “I think if we had more business [and] foot traffic down here, we would have more businesses come in and stay down here.” As plans for the Village’s future continueto surface, Kimberly Johnson, manager at Ultra Image Tanning, said she was excited that Ball State has embraced the idea of aiding the Village. “I really feel that the businesses down here … we are welcoming and ready for Ball State to come on down this direction,” Johnson said.

Sep. 15, 2018. Plitt’s pass on second-and-4 is intercepted as time expires, giving Ball State a 38-10 loss to Indiana. “They were dropping into cover four, and I just tried to fit one in there when there wasn’t enough room,” Plitt said. So, who was the man who caught the ball? Junior safety Bryce Cosby knows exactly who. “Isaac James.” “Yeah, that was me,” James said sheepishly. “I just made a play on the ball — saw it, broke on it and caught it on the sideline to end the game.”James graduated from Indiana in May with one more year of athletic eligibility left. After spending the majority of his collegiate career as a backup, James wanted to go somewhere he would play more often. When the opportunity to come to Ball State presented itself, James was all in. Along with the playing time, James said he decided to become a Cardinal because of the growing culture within the football program. Ball State is in a rebuilding stage as it hasn’t had a winning season since 2013, but James was impressed with the leadership and said he wants to be part of the group that turns the program around. “I’m just one of the older guys who wants to win,” James said. “This is my last season, so I’m trying to make it count. I’m trying to do whatever it takes to get this team to be as successful as possible. I just feel like I can bring a lot of knowledge and wisdom from my years of playing ball.”4See JAMES, 08Wesley Stitt was the story of the first quarter Friday as he scored three touchdowns in the Eagles’ 42-0 win over the Bearcats.

Cosby said James’ most noticeable feature has been his attitude. If you talk to those who work closest with him, they’ll say you’d be hard pressed to find anything but a smile on his face. “[It] seems like he’s never having a bad day,” Cosby said. “He’s [up at]
