      position because of his friendly personality.

         housands of masked Munsonians crammed the streets
      of downtown Muncie for the annual Mardi Gras celebration
      last Saturday. Music filled the air as people sipped on a
      beverage or revealed a body part for treasured beads.
      Among the 11,000 spectators in attendance, two people
      didn’t go unnoticed.
         Two police officers rode into downtown on horses. They
      trotted through swarms of people, occasionally stopping
      to chat and control the massive crowd.
         “I’m one of the most familiar faces in town,” officer
      William Rapp said.
         Rapp joins Eric Kirkman, completing Muncie’s Mounted
      Police patrol.
         Together with the help of their horses Senator, Malibu
      and Roman, they patrol the downtown area, every Muncie
      parade and other special events that draw a large crowd.
      The patrol can minimize criminal activity, control crowds
      and increase citizens’ sense of safety. Rapp and Kirkman
      also travel to local schools, day cares and retirement
      homes, providing presentations.
         “I get to ride (horses) everyday,” Rapp said. “Some people pay top dollar
      and travel all over the United States to do what I get paid to do. This is the

   The Bobcats (9-18, 6-10 Mid-American Conference) outscored

                              Jeff Halbert’s two free throws pulled

                              Black finished 7-for-8 at the line and
                            added nine rebounds. Tre Whitted

Akron upsets arch-rival Kent at home
  AKRON, Ohio (AP) — Derrick Tarver scored 33 points, includ-
ing a layup with 1:52 left that put Akron ahead for good in its
64-61 win over Kent State on Sunday.
  Tarver made 13-of-18 shots from the field for the Zips (13-12,
7-9 Mid-American Conference).
  His layup gave Akron a 58-56 lead. Dru Joyce III then hit four
                         foul shots and Tarver sealed the win with
                         two foul shots with 3.4 seconds left.
                            Brian Bedford and DeAndre Haynes
                         missed 3-pointers in the final seconds
                         for the Golden Flashes (20-5, 13-3) that
                         would have tied the score.
                            While Tarver hit 72 percent of his
                         shots, his teammates made just 9-of-28
                         shots from the floor (32 percent). Rick
McFadden was the next highest scorer with seven points.
  Tarver scored seven points in a 10-0 run late in the first half
that gave the Zips a 30-25 lead. His 3-pointer with 17:34 left put
the Zips ahead 34-26 before Kent State went on 8-0 run capped
by a 3-pointer by Eric Haut to tie the score at 38.
  Neither team had more than a five-point lead the rest of the way.
  Haut scored 17 points for the Golden Flashes, who hit 37 per-
cent of their shots from the field. John Edwards had 10 points.
