* John Hostettler to Speak on Campus

Former US Congressman John Hostettler will be speaking at UE on Wednesday, April 4 at 4 p.m. in Room 162, Schroeder Family School of Business Administration Building. His speech, titled “An American Foreign Policy”, will deal with his vote in opposition to the invasion of Iraq and his belief that such invasions stand in contrast to the overwhelming history of American foreign policy.

John Hostettler served Indiana’s 8th congressional district (which included Evansville) from 1995-2007. During his time in office, Hostettler served as a member of the House Armed Services Committee and the Judiciary Committee. Hostettler was one of six Republicans to vote against the invasion of Iraq, standing in opposition to his party’s leadership as well as President Bush.

Since leaving Congress, Hostettler authored a book, “Nothing for the Nation: Who Got What Out of Iraq” detailing the motives of US political leaders for removing Saddam Hussein from power. In 2010, Hostettler ran in the Republican Primary for the US Senate, losing to the eventual Senator Dan Coats. Congressman Hostettler has also founded the Constitution Institute, to promote a greater understanding of the United States Constitution and provide an education in the practical application of Constitutional principles with the goal of producing citizen-statesmen.

* Think Outside the Lunch Box to Discuss "U.S. Health Care: The Facts Behind the Fight"

In March 2010, President Obama signed into law the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act. Two years later, the health care reform legislation remains a national controversy, and its constitutionality was debated this week in the Supreme Court.

The University of Evansville’s Think Outside the Lunch Box Faculty Speaker Series will conclude for the 2011-12 academic year with “U.S. Health Care: The Facts Behind the Fight,” a presentation by William B. Stroube, director and professor of health services administration.

Stroube will speak at noon on Thursday, April 5, in the Blue & Gold Room on the first floor of Old National Bank’s headquarters in Downtown Evansville. The event is free and open to the public.

“Through all of the public discourse about recent legislation, it’s important for Americans to keep certain facts in mind about our country’s health care system,” said Stroube. “For example, many people say they want the government to stay out of health care, but they may not realize that the government pays for almost half of all health care costs in the nation through programs such as Medicaid, Medicare, and Veterans Affairs. Furthermore, our per-capita health care spending far exceeds other developed countries, and many argue the care may not be as good.”

“By comparing and contrasting the U.S. health care system with other countries’ systems,” Stroube added, “I hope to provide some information that is missing in the national dialogue over the current legislation.”

UE’s Think Outside the Lunch Box Faculty Speaker Series is in its second year and is typically held the first Thursday of every month. After a summer break, the 2012-13 series will resume in October.

Mr. Jensen earned a BA  in Secondary Education from the University of Evansville in 1965 and an MS in Physical Education Administration from the University of Illinois-Champaign.  As a student at the University,  Jensen earned honors as a two time All-American in swimming and placed on the Dean’s list.

He came to work at UE in 1974 from Eureka College where he was an assistant professor of health and physical education. After becoming a UE faculty member, he coached the varsity swim team for two years and developed an All American Diver.  From 1978-1981 he served as the varsity tennis coach and in 1981 was voted the Heartland Collegiate Conference “Coach of the Year.” In 1985 he became the Chair of the Department of Human Kinetics and Sport Studies (now the Department of Exercise and Sport Science) and served in that capacity for 20 years. In that time the department underwent many changes and developments including the addition of four academic majors raising the number of students in those majors to 275.

In addition to his academic and athletic responsibilities Jensen was director of aquatic programs until 2006. It is estimated that over 25,000 children took part in the community wide  “Learn to Swim” program. In 1998 he was elected to the University of Evansville Athletic Hall of Fame. In 2002 Jensen was awarded the Sadele & Sydney Berger Award for Service.

In the community he has been privileged to serve on the Board of Directors for the Thunder on the Ohio, Evansville Freedom Festival, the WNIN Channel 9 auction and  the American Red Cross where in 2002 he received the Distinguished Volunteer Service Award for 45 years of service.

Athletics

* Baseball Cruises by Cougars, 8-6

The University of Evansville baseball team continued its winning ways Tuesday evening, topping SIU Edwardsville, 8-6, at Roy. E Lee Field. The victory marks the Aces’ seventh straight midweek win and improves their overall record to 19-10, while the Cougars fall to 13-15 on the season.

“It was nice to see our offense provide us with a punch in the late innings,” said head coach Wes Carroll. “It’s a good midweek road win and hopefully it will give us the confidence we need going into the weekend.”

Sophomore right-hander Ryan Billo (5-0) kept his season record unblemished, tossing 5.1 innings, allowing four runs, eight hits, a walk, and struck out four to earn the win. Jake Naumann hurled 1.2 frames out of the bullpen, giving up a run, two hits, and struck out one, while Sam Johns earned his first save of the season, holding off the Cougars in the eighth and ninth innings. He allowed one run, one hit, two walks, and struck out two.

Offensively, Kyle Pollock (3-for-4), Trentt Copeland (2-for-5), and Jason Hockemeyer (2-for-5) led the Aces with multiple hits, as UE combined for 10 total. Kevin Kaczmarski’s two and Hockemeyer’s three runs batted in represented five of Evansville’s seven RBI in the game.

* Women's Golf Rally to Take Second at Belmont Invitational

Freshman Cathy Doyle picked up right where she left off after last week’s second-place finish, matching her effort to lead the University of Evansville women’s golf team to another finish of second at the Belmont Invitational.

Doyle shot an even par of 72 in Tuesday’s final round at Old Hickory Country Club.  Her final round was the lowest round of the day, besting Tala Mumford of Austin Peay’s total of 74.  The Indianapolis native finished just a stroke off of medalist Caitlin Watts of UAB.  Watts finished with a 149 while Doyle carded a 150.

Lauren Ellerman finished in 12th place with a 157 while Alyssa Key was right behind with a 159 to place in 14th.  Sydney Skiles tied for 31st with a 169 while Dana Hayden notched a 174 to place 37th.

A pair of freshman played as individuals for UE as Chelsea Zusan tied for 35th with a 173 while Kelly Lamarche finished in 41st with a 179.

After leading by 13 strokes after day one, Belmont padded its advantage, winning the tournament by 17 shots over Evansville.  The Bruins finished with a 616 while UE notched a 633.  Four Bruins finished in the top 11 overall.

The women will have 11 days off before returning to action on April 14 and 15 at the Indiana Invitational.  The event will take place at the Indiana University Golf Club in Bloomington, Ind.

* Mens Soccer Adds Two to 2012 Recruiting Class

A very strong 2012 incoming class appears to be even stronger with the addition of two more top prospects. Head Coach Mike Jacobs and his coaching staff have announced the addition of Mark Anthony Gonzalez (Toronto, Canada) and Nick Lewis (Beaverton, Oregon).

“Adding both Mark Anthony (Gonzalez) and Nick (Lewis) give our already solid incoming class two more key pieces,” said Jacobs. “Being able to include creative attacking players in midfield and up front will only enhance the solid core of players we will have on our 2012 roster.  We are excited to welcome both of them to the University of Evansville Purple Aces family.”

Gonazalez and Lewis will make up the fall incoming class along with Ryan Coates (Springboro, Ohio), Vincent DiPrimio (Bloomington, Ind.), Faik Hajderovic (St. Louis, Mo.), William “Mack” Hasinger (Morton, Ill.), Nate Opperman (Olathe, Kan.) and Kyle Wilson (Evansville, Ind.).
