Ben is an undergraduate at SIUC studying journalism due to graduate in 2011. Ben has been writing for himself for years, but he is otherwise unpublished. Ben is an avid rock climber, and outdoor enthusiast. His project this semester surrounds one the greatest sets of bouldering problems that southern Illinois has to offer, The Standard.
Bouldering is simply climbing without the ropes, or the height. Climbers find problems in the rock face, set a goal, and learn the moves it takes to "top-out" a problem. It takes practice and repetition to form the muscle memory it takes to dial in and stick each hold.
Located in Giant City, many local climbers frequent this tough piece of rock multiple times a week. Some have been coming to the rock for years, and can do every problem on the face with awe inspiring ease.
The Standard can be found in Giant City's "Devil's Standtable" hiking trail. Look for this sign that marks the trail. Just go left at the beginning where the path forks and you walk right under the roof of the infamous "Standard".
Conquering The Standard with Connor Sullivan, Mike Justich, Charlie Foxx, Bacon, and the dogs.
For more stuff on bouldering, check out http://www.soillbouldering.com/ These guys wrote the book on Southern Illinois climbing. Literally. The book is called Sandstone Warrior written by Matt Bliss, it provides directions to 12 great spots, including The Standard, and depicts routes and gives advice for these beautiful rocks.

The Feed My Sheep video was first produced as a class assignment. But now there is a passion behind video. It is slowly becoming a movement. It is a movement to awaken more of the people in the Carbondale, IL community to the need for more funding of the this program.
On average, the program serves more than one hundred needy people Monday through Friday every week. Sometimes the food is plenty. But more often than not, is there a need to supply enough food for the average amount of people served each week.
I enjoyed making this video. It gave me a chance to meet the caring people who donate their valuable time to help to others. Not only did I enjoy meeting the people on the inside of the program who make it work, but I enjoyed meeting the people who apreciate what the program does for the community.
