it with the simple, humble
birth of the babe in a man-
ger, one has to really wonder
if our priorities really match
His. Clearly the historical re-
cord of his life show little in
terms of last minute shopping
at Macy's or Penney's for those
last minute items, yet His gift
to us is probably the greatest
gift one could receive. And one
you won't find "on sale now at

So as we enter this season,
let us not forget to give thanks.
Not only for the comforts and
material things we enjoy, but
also for things yet to come that
we don't and can't understand
until the day in which we per-
sonally give thanks to the Giv-
er of the greatest gifts, whose
humble and simple beginnings
we remember, year round.

Today is Black Friday. This
is the day that all the stores
are falling over themselves
and each other to remind us
just how few days we have left
to spend all our cash and max
out our credit cards for Christ-
mas spending. These are the
stores that tell us how much
glitter and lights we need to
have on our tree and how big
our tree needs to be. That is, if
we let them.

For those few merchants
that haven't been hawking
their Christmas wares since
mid-September, this is the
time to join with the rest of the
selling world in reminding us
how much we need to spend
on presents, decorations and
more food for this season...
and anything else they can un-
load in our cars.

All this in remembrance of
a baby, found in a manger, in
swaddling cloths, somewhere
in the spring of what is esti-

Volleyball double header comes to Southern

Team Helix and team Ho-
meostasis faced off Tuesday
ight in a girls spike-a-thon.
h e two teams went back and
orth during the whole first
lame reminding the crowd
Ind each other that they were
j it to win it.

Coining down to the wire,
earn Homeostasis only led by
_ couple points until Brooke
)urst decided that game one

feam Helix that left them in
fonfusion and in no position

win the first match. Homeo-

asis ended with a victory.

"My team worked really

hard that whole first match
and I just wanted to make sure
we were rewarded with a vic-
tory," said Brooke Durst, a
freshman religious education

Homeostasis started the
second match with much con-
fidence and strategy, in order
to avoid another close- match.
Their plan was successful.

Amber Dawson stepped up
to the net toward the end of
game two to seal the deal. Af-
ter a couple of her spikes the
game was over with Homeo-
stasis winning both matches.

"I'm really proud of our
team, because we struggled
through the season but we
ended it strong," said Amber
Dawson, a sophomore psy-

chology major.

In defeat, team Helix still
showed sportsmanship along
with a Christian attitude to-
ward Homeostasis.

"I'm not sure what hap-
pened," said BernelleTaitague,
a senior health science major.
"They're obviously a good
team and we haven't played
for a week which threw us off
a little bit."

On the men's side, team
Cool Breeze went up against
team Bromance in a game that
wasn't decided 'till the very
end. From the very start both
teams were neck and neck on
the scoreboard and evenly
matched physically, causing
their opponent to use their
brain over their muscle.

Cesar Bernardino did just
that with his ability to trick his
opponent by switching which
hand he would spike the ball
with. Left or right-handed
Bernardino showed that skill
is needed besides athleticism
to defeat your opponent. Cool
Breeze took game one 25-23.

"A lot of times people ex-
pect you to hit with the same
hand so they can know where
to block," said Cesar Bernardi-
no, a sophomore allied health
major. "When you can hit with
both hands it opens up the

Despite a close first loss,
team Bromance was deter-
mined to have their revenge
and they did by defeating Cool
Breeze 25-19 during the sec-

ond game. Mike Johns came
out strong during game two
and caused Cool Breeze to
make too many mistakes with
no recovery.

Game three would decide
it all and both teams contin-
ued to match each other on
the scoreboard. Cool Breeze's
Jaris Gonzalez was all over
the court not only by setting
up his big guys but by stuffing
a couple spikes on his oppo-
nents as well. In the end Cool
Breeze was victorious 17-15 to
win the match.

"Better sets and arrange-
ment would have helped us,"
said Bromance's Johns. "It

Tuition increase low

Emily Kay

With prices of commodities
skyrocketing due to economic
downfall, Southern is doing
what it can to help students
afford higher education.

In May 2009 Southern will
implement a 3-49 percent
tuition increase, which is the
lowest increase the university
has seen in the last 12 years.

"We tried to keep the
increase as low as possible
while still meeting our budget-
ary needs," said Tom Verrill,
senior vice president of finan-
cial administration.

Each year the price of
tuition raises to compensate
for higher expenses the univer-
sity has to pay to keep things
running. The tuition for the
current school year is $15,820,
but with the 3.49 percentage
increase for next school year
the tuition will be $16,372, a
difference of $552.

While the increase in tuition
is lower than usual, students
are still worried about coming
up with the finances to stay at

"You should start thinking
long-term," said Patrelle Ma-
jor, a junior business market-
ing major. Like, "am I going to
be able to afford [the tuition]
for another two semesters?"

The current economic con-
dition and no cost of living in-
crease in salary for employees,

which is a two to three percent
raise the employees normally
receive every year, are the two
factors that are allowing the
tuition percentage to be lower
in the 2009 to 2010 school
