Bill aims to attract filmmakers to Arizona HB 2127 would restore motion picture tax-credit program for 20 years By Rachel Gottfried DAILY WILDCAT
A proposed bill may bring more filmmakers to Arizona, potentially creating jobs and opportunities for students in the state. House Bill 2127 aims to reinstate Arizona’s motion picture tax-credit program, which expired two years ago. If passed, the program would be
in place for 20 years. The bill would allow for an income-tax credit equal to 20 percent of a production company’s costs that exceed $250,000. The tax credit’s limit would be set at $15 million for any given production, and set a $70 million ceiling for the amount of total credits awarded in a year. It also includes an incentive for the construction of sound stages, which is said to be critical for attracting people to the industry. The incentive would bump the tax credit to 25 percent if a company films at least half of its production in a facility that cost at least
hundreds of jobs for college students as well as Arizona residents. Students would receive on-the-job training while interning on location with professionals, she said, and upon graduation, these same students would not necessarily have to leave Arizona for California or New York to find “viable work” in the industry. Hotels, restaurants, flower shops, hardware stores, furniture stores and clothing stores could also benefit from film production in the state, she said. Lisanne Skyler, an assistant professor in the School of Theatre, Film
$50 million to build. Supporters of the bill say the program will definitely attract film productions to Arizona. “We have been losing projects that were interested in filming here to New Mexico, California and Utah — all of which provide incentives,” said Shelli Hall, director of the Tucson Film Office. Hall said Quentin Tarantino’s “Django Unchained” and “The Lone Ranger,” starring Johnny Depp, both had the chance to be filmed in Tucson. The bill, she said, could provide
and Television, said she hopes the bill will pass. “On my own projects, my producers will only let me consider shooting in states with incentives,” Skyler added. “It is that critical to a production to have these tax savings, particularly in the current economy and the lower budgets many films are being made for these days.” Marshall Vest, director of the economic and business research center, said his research suggests that the bill in itself is a bad idea.

Transgenders face difficulties with voter identification law By Savannah Martin DAILY WILDCAT
Creative writing sophomore Ben Griffith hopes to have a hassle-free voting experience this election season. But as a member of the transgender community, he could face a unique set of obstacles due to Arizona’s voter identification law. “I keep waiting for folks to be like, ‘We need to double check and be sure that you’re legit,’” said Griffith, who is a female-to-male-identified member of the transgender community. “Of course people give me an odd look when they see my legal identification.”
Earlier this month, the 9th Circuit Court of Appeals upheld a provision of Arizona’s 2004 voter identification law that requires voters to present identification at the polls. Voters need one form of documentation that shows a name, address and photograph or two forms of identification that show a name and address. The court declared the other half of the law, which requires proof of citizenship for voter registration, unconstitutional. While many of its challengers say the law discriminates against Latinos and newly naturalized citizens, few have voiced concern for members of the transgender community, who may not have ID to match their gender.
Arizona Attorney General Tom Horne, who defended the voter identification law in court, neglected to comment on the impact the provision could have on transgender citizens. “A lot of times federal agencies and state agencies make rules to guard against certain things like immigration or terrorism, and then trans people end up being targeted as a side effect, basically,” said Stephan Przybylowicz, co-director of ASUA Pride Alliance and a graduate student studying information and library science. “They don’t think about how it affects the trans community. So it wasn’t necessarily
With the economy slowly recovering from a recession, this year may be the brightest for college graduates entering the labor market. The unemployment rate in Arizona has dropped by 2.4 percent. Although the country has been out of the recession since June 2009, entry-level job prospects have been slowly improving along with the economy, said Marshall Vest, director of the economic and business research center. “This slow improvement is much better than what we have seen since the recession started in late 2007,” Vest said. As the state unemployment rate dropped to 8.6 percent from 11 percent, prospective candidates will have a better chance of finding job opportunities than they did last year, he said. This recession has been the longest and worst recession with the slowest improvement since the Great Depression, said Gerald Swanson, an adjunct economics professor. While the economy has been improving, the country is still in a fragile state, he said, and cannot afford any shocks such as a terrorist attack or a spike in oil prices. Although the U.S. economy is starting to improve, it could be hurt in the long run by the recession that Europe is facing, Swanson said.
Library dean recognized nationally Carla Stoffle receives award for Peace Corps work, 20 years with UA By Brittny Mejia DAILY WILDCAT
Carla Stoffle has come a long way from the makeshift library she patched together for children in Barbados more than 40 years ago. A laundry list of life experiences as a world traveler, educator, humanitarian and librarian has earned her the role of dean of UA Libraries — a position she has held for the last two decades. After countless hours and years of hard work, Stoffle will receive the Joseph W. Lippincott Award in Anaheim, Calif., this June. The prestigious award, which was established in 1938, is given annually to an individual who has provided distinguished service to the profession of librarianship, according to the American Library
Association’s website. “I was a little stunned, because there are a lot of really good people in the library profession doing really good things,” Stoffle said. “It’s humbling that somebody looked at you and looked at others and said, ‘Well, we think maybe this time, you’re the worthy one.’” Stoffle grew up in Pueblo, Colo., and attended the University of Colorado, where she married as an undergraduate student. Initially, she planned on getting a doctorate in history or geography. However, after a stint with the Peace Corps, her plans changed. Stoffle and her husband joined the Peace Corps and lived in the West Indies for two years. While in Barbados, Stoffle taught a variety of subjects at a secondary school. However, she said her most memorable experience was putting books in the hands of children who did not normally have access to them. She said the parents of some

Fundraising chapter lacks student support By Brittny Mejia Daily Wildcat
Despite years of meager student participation, the UA chapter of Students Supporting Brain Tumor Research continues to hold fundraisers and collaborate with other Arizona university chapters. The chapter’s numbers are low because of the hundreds of other clubs and philanthropy events, according to club President Steven Zonsius, a junior studying accounting and entrepreneurship. “We’ve actually only really recruited, in the four years SSBTR has been a club, four or five kids that weren’t involved in the Phoenix walk prior to joining here,” Zonsius said. “It’s actually really difficult to get kids in it.” Zonsius worked with other members to plan the Tucson SSBTR Walka-Thon this year. However, for a variety of reasons, no one attended. Some

About 183,000 don’t have updated driver’s licenses, and 338,000 don’t have updated U.S. passports. “A lot of us can’t just up and change,” Griffith said. “We have to go through a process.” Transitioning from one gender to the other is a multi-step procedure that requires thousands of dollars in hormone treatments, medical procedures and therapy. Gender reassignment surgery can cost around $20,000. On top of these costs, transgender men and women may choose to change their legal name and gender
volunteers stressed the need for more people to get involved. Steve Glassman, who founded the club in 2002, came to Tucson to help with the Walk-a-Thon. He said he was surprised that no one attended because of the success of the past three Tucson Walk-a-Thons, but added that he’s optimistic for next year’s. “I feel that this year we’ve been fighting different circumstances here,” Glassman said. “If we can get the publicity out early enough, there is no reason this event can’t be successful.” Most of the volunteers within the club have a personal connection to the cause and are extremely vocal about their desire for research funding and ultimately to find a cure for brain tumors, which are one of the top causes of cancer deaths in teenagers in the world.

categorization. In Arizona, a legal name change costs around $200. Voter ID laws like Arizona’s may not actually exempt transgender citizens from voting once they reach the polls, but having to show ID demonstrates a “symbolic threat of scrutiny,” said Frank Galarte, a professor of gender and women’s studies. Some transgender voters fear they will be met with hostility, trans-phobia or confusion if their ID doesn’t match their outward appearance, Galarte said. This may dissuade them from voting all together. “It shouldn’t be that transgender folks should be forced to correct their status and their identification to be able to vote,” he said. “The enforcement of this law is by virtue symbolically excluding or discouraging certain populations.” Having proper identification affects transgender people in other areas of life as well, according to Galarte. They may have problems doing anything from obtaining jobs to going through airport security to

qualifying for insurance. “If we’re looking for ways to be able to change that then that’s implicated in a larger change in how we think about gender structurally and how it works in legal avenues,” Galarte said. That “larger change,” according to Przybylowicz, is part of a societal shift in how we perceive gender and transgender people in our communities. “Luckily, I think the trans community is starting to have a voice, so when stuff like this does happen we say, ‘Well, what about the effect on the trans community?’ and then we try to take measures to minimize that effect,” Przybylowicz added. “I think trans issues are kind of the next wave of stuff that’s happening. We’re still really into gay rights issues, but trans stuff is coming along right behind.” Online at DAILYWILDCAT.COM Check out the full study published by the Williams Institute.

Europe is a big trading partner with the U.S., he said, and the region’s current economic status could stop it from buying U.S. goods. The economy is expected to continuously improve as the unemployment rates dropped from 10 percent to 8.2 percent nationwide, but it has a “long way to go before it can go back to normal,” prior to the recession in 2007. In 2010, Arizona’s unemployment levels were the highest they had been since the recession began, at 11 percent. Although it has been a slow recovery, the situation still provides a better environment for college graduates to find a job than it has been in previous years, Vest said. “We are a very fragile economy,” Swanson said. “Several things can tip us back into recession, but if nothing changes, we will just have a slow recovery.” Many graduates have been discouraged by the slow economic improvement, and some are going to graduate school simply because they
can’t find a job, he said. “But the opportunity of going into grad school won’t work if the outcome is not providing many jobs,” Swanson added. Vest projected that the economy will not “dramatically improve” until 2015. Improvement has been slow, but job opportunities are definitely there, said Susan Miller, marketing and special events coordinator for Career Services. “Students must treat their job search like a real job,” Miller said. “Things will come together, but you need to perfect your resume and put the effort into it.” Kerry McLaughlin, a business management senior, said she has been using career-finding services to help her find jobs upon graduation. McLaughlin said it has been a competitive environment, but students just have to be patient and selfmotivated. “It can be a nerve-wracking process, but students can’t take it personally if they get rejected from the first try,” she said. “Students will find a job eventually but they just need to stay positive and remain in the game.”

Secret Service scandal began at Colombian club MCCLATCHY TRIBUNE
CARTAGENA, Colombia — In the early hours of April 12, the booze flowed and a thumping techno rumba shook the walls at Tu Candela, a popular nightclub whose dance floor recalls the narrow confines of a wine cellar. Dozens of couples gyrated to the pulsing sounds emanating from flat video screens throughout the club, which is in Cartagena’s walled-in colonial section. When the party ended around 4 a.m., two couples headed for the Hotel Caribe, an imposing castlelike structure facing the Caribbean, two miles from the club. The couples’ encounter at one of Cartagena’s hottest nightspots set the stage for the still-unfolding prostitution scandal that’s snared 12 U.S. Secret Service agents and a dozen members of the U.S. armed forces. Military personnel remain under investigation. Of the Secret Service agents, eight have resigned, retired or been fired and one has had his national security clearance revoked, making his dismissal almost certain. Three have been cleared of misconduct. But the investigation is hardly over; the scandal has added a new issue to the presidential campaign and raised questions in Congress about whether contact with prostitutes by members of the advance team preparing for President Barack Obama’s attendance at the April 14-15 Summit of the Americas compromised Obama’s security. U.S. investigators who’ve traveled to Cartagena to interview hotel
chambermaids as well as taxi drivers who transported the women and the Secret Service are still trying to unravel events, according to hotel employees and drivers. One driver said that as recently as Monday a man who identified himself as a U.S. investigator had approached him with pictures of women who might have slept with agents at the Caribe. Whether investigators have requested hotel video and copies of identification cards the women presented at the reception desk isn’t known. Ana Beatriz Angel, a Caribe spokeswoman, declined to discuss the matter. “The hotel will make no comment,” she said. The Associated Press reported Wednesday that the Secret Service acknowledges it’s checking whether its employees consorted with strippers and prostitutes in advance of Obama’s visit last year to El Salvador. The Colombia scandal erupted when Dania Suárez, 24, who was one of the two women dancing at Tu Candela, began knocking on hotel room doors, complaining that her date had refused to pay after having sex with her. Suárez and the second woman, still unidentified, left the Caribe between 9:30 and 10 a.m. They were escorted to a nearby taxi stand by police officers who’d responded to the ruckus in the hotel hallway. Once they got into the taxi, Suárez and her girlfriend talked about their misadventure. Suárez’s friend was puzzled that

her date had declined to have sex with her. “Aren’t I pretty?” she asked the cab driver, Jose Peña, as he drove away from the Caribe on Cartagena’s busy seaside highway. Suárez recalled that her date was a cheapskate. He’d promised to pay $250 for sex but had given her only about $30. After she complained in the hallway, men in other rooms pitched in and gave her $100. In her first interview in The New York Times last week, Suárez was
quoted as saying that the promised amount was $800. She hasn’t denied that statement, but Peña said she didn’t mention that figure in his presence. While fallout from the scandal has engulfed Peña, Suárez and U.S. security personnel, little has emerged about how all the agents and military men in question came to meet the women. Encounters with more than 20 women have been rumored, but not confirmed.
WASHINGTON — Senate Republicans made temporary peace with Democrats to approve the reauthorization of a popular law designed to help prevent and respond to domestic and sexual abuse. Passage of the Violence Against Women Act on a 68-31 vote gives momentum to the legislation. But the bill still faces hurdles in the House. Usually the reauthorization has bipartisan support. But this year it has become enmeshed in the partisan wrangling that has dominated this Congress. The legislation now goes to the House, where Republican women are introducing their own proposal. The Violence Against Women Act, originally written by Vice President Joe Biden when he was a senator, was first approved in 1994. The current authorization expired last year, but the programs have already been funded through the end of the fiscal year, Sept. 30. This bill, if signed into law, would reauthorize the programs for the next fiscal year. Approval has been a priority, given President Barack Obama’s desire to solidify his standing among women voters. Republicans have claimed that Democrats were using the act for political gain during an election year.

Officials correct to punish player Megan Hurley Daily Wildcat
he NBA did the right thing by suspending Los Angeles Lakers player Metta World Peace. Whether or not his violent behavior on the basketball court was intentional, he earned the penalty not only for his actions, but also for showing the negative repercussions of showboating and celebrating. It’s not enough to sink a basket anymore. Players have to rub their opponents’ faces in it. Families across the country tune in to watch the games between these multimillionaires, and the NBA officials acted properly to show that cockiness and bad sportsmanship can have serious consequences, no matter the platform. World Peace is suspended for seven games after making a dunk and “pounding his chest with his right fist as he turned upcourt and, finding (Oklahoma City Thunder’s James) Harden in his way, hitting him squarely in the head with a windmilling left elbow,” according to The New York Times. ESPN reports that Harden got a concussion. World Peace’s reckless behavior left Harden with a serious injury. Part of playing the game is about respecting the opponent. World Peace was so overly enthusiastic that his pride severely harmed his opponent.
The players may forget that they have young fans watching them, but the NBA shouldn’t.
It’s been accepted that showboating is a part of the game, but World Peace’s actions show that people can go too far. The NBA should consider instituting a rule similar to the NFL’s, which penalizes players for excessive celebration. It’s disrespectful and has now injured another player. The players may forget that they have young fans watching them, but the NBA shouldn’t. When it comes to the NBA as a business, younger viewers are the ones keeping professional sports alive. Adolescents aspire to be like the athletes that win all of these games, keeping the highest level of national athletics on a pedestal. Young people deserve to see people worth idolizing in sports. World Peace can make as many difficult shots as he can, but this elbowing fiasco just shows how his hasty decision to celebrate at the wrong time and the wrong place led to the severe injury of someone who just happened to be in his way. Behavior like the antics exhibited by World Peace is not something that today’s youth should view as OK. He received his due punishment, but the incident should push the NBA for further consideration of a possible association-wide policy and penalties. The younger viewers watching these games see harmful actions in what is supposed to be a constructive and unifying sport. Because NBA players can’t monitor their own behavior, rules should be implemented to protect players and to protect the spirit of the game.

For once, the math department should be commended for its attempt to aid students. Calculus may have a high GRO rate and it may ruin many a student’s GPA. But finally, a department in this school is looking out for its students and reforming its policies to benefit students. — Dan Desrochers is a chemistry freshman.

MAILBAG AND ONLINE COMMENTS A nuclear Iran poses many direct threats to the United States, and must be stopped. A nuclear Iran would very easily tip the balance of power between anti-U.S. and proU.S. Middle Eastern nations completely against us, and America would have to do everything in its power to make up for this drastic power turn. In addition, nuclear capability gives Iran the ability to enhance and support terrorists that already have an eye on the U.S. troops. This instills a huge threat to the safety of both our troops abroad and America directly. Should Iran get nuclear weapons, other countries including Saudi Arabia and Egypt have already expressed they would follow suit and develop such weapons. How does that affect the U.S. if all of these activities are happening thousands of miles away? The increase of even a single antiAmerican country developing nuclear weapons means that terrorists will likely be able to access these weapons.

Daily Wildcat staff editorials represent the official opinion of the Daily Wildcat staff, which is determined at staff editorial meetings. Columns, cartoons, online comments and letters to the editors represent the opinion of their author and do not represent the opinion of the Daily Wildcat.
Furthermore, a multi-national arms race would become a reality, permanently increasing international instability. Should Iran become nuclear, Middle Eastern countries will be pressured to succumb to Iranian influence. This means that any progress or relationships we have or could potentially have with Arab countries will deteriorate. America would be no longer viewed as the world’s superpower by preventing Iran from getting to such a dangerous point. This is by no means an issue that we as Americans can afford to overlook. There is a complete consensus amongst international intelligence agencies that Iran is doing something they should not do — that will not only adversely affect America, but the rest of the world as well. It is essential that we be proactive about this incredibly pressing issue and use all of the power we have to prevent Iran from becoming nuclear.

Arizona’s Career Mixer

Words of fury
ISSUE Don’t miss the Wildcat’s last spring 2012 issue
He said, she said
A student called UAPD and said she had been verbally harassed by her ex-boyfriend at 2:08 p.m. on Friday. She told officers that although he lives in Phoenix, he will be coming to the UA for graduate school and that she placed a restraining order against him months ago for harassment. She said he drove to Tucson without telling her and followed her into Rincon Market, and before that had been trying to contact her. She asked the officer to tell him to stop contacting her and that she was in the process of getting another restraining order against him. The officer called the woman’s ex-boyfriend, but he did not answer. The officer left him a voicemail to tell him to stop calling the woman and that she was getting another restraining order. Afterward, the woman called UAPD and asked the officer to keep the new restraining order a secret from her ex-boyfriend. The officer told her it was too late. The ex-boyfriend called back hours later and told the officer he never tried to contact the woman nor did he follow her anywhere. He said she was trying to contact him, not the other way around. The officer asked them to show call logs and messages from the other to find out who was contacting whom. The man submitted tweets, Facebook messages, phone call logs and text messages from the woman, but the woman did not send anything. The officer told them to stop talking to each other.

An unidentified individual called the University of Arizona Police Department to report a fight between two students at 6:20 p.m. on Tuesday. An officer arrived at the scene and immediately separated them. When the officer asked the men what happened, one of them said he hit the other because he said something derogatory about Chinese people. The man said he monitors an online chat room and punched the other student for posting a mean comment. The officer noted in his report that both men were Chinese. When the officer asked what the comment was, the man said it was too offensive to say out loud. The officer spoke to the student who was hit. He told officers that he was on his way to class when he saw the man and everything seemed fine. He said the man then hit him in the face “out of nowhere.” A professor and teaching assistant saw the altercation and immediately ran over to break up the fight. The student who was hit said he would press charges.

Going was motivated from the beginning to impress his teacher, despite the intimidation that came from working on a “real” film so early on in the program. “It felt like a ‘pressure’s on’ situation,” Going said. “That’s what made me think about sound, and then taking the class, I just kind of snowballed into it.” Working on Skyler’s film also acted as an early lesson on the importance of collaboration, which the film program emphasizes as the students progress through each semester together.

I’ve never heard of a writereditor, but I totally would do that if it existed.” With graduation and an entrance into the professional world looming, Going is applying for industry jobs on both coasts, building on some connections he made while interning at a post-production company last year in New York City. Although he said he isn’t worried about career prospects yet, he’s driven less by fame and fortune and more by proving to his parents that helping him through school was worth it. But really, he’d like “to be able to afford food and a place, and I’ll be happy,” Going said. Then he quickly added, “And movie tickets.”

‘Thick As A Brick 2’ capitalizes on old album’s magic to create a new sound By Andrew Conlogue Daily Wildcat
Exactly 40 years have passed since Jethro Tull’s over-the-top prog rock concept album Thick As A Brick was released. The album’s fictional narrator, a young English boy named Gerald Bostock, has grown old since then. So what happened to him in all this time, anyway? Any number of things can happen in a lifetime. The possibilities are basically endless. That is the deceptively simple premise of the classic’s follow-up, Thick As A Brick 2. Credited to Ian Anderson, Jethro Tull’s frontman (purists are sadly missing Martin Barre, the band’s brilliant guitarist), Thick As A Brick 2 nevertheless harks back to the band’s roots in the wild excesses of the ‘70s. It’s big, it’s beautiful, and it’s downright batty when it wants to be. Though the album is split into 17 different tracks, it is really best listened to as a single chunk, like its predecessor. Lyrically, the listener follows the life of Bostock through its what-ifs,
maybes and might-have-beens. Did he grow up to be a banker? A soldier? Maybe a televangelist, or a delusional bum? Or perhaps, worst of all, he grew into a soul-crushingly ordinary man, whose life slips away while he isn’t looking? The listener certainly doesn’t know, but drifting along through the glorious murk of Anderson’s words (some of which he speaks instead of sings) is half the fun. The other half, of course, is the music. As with its predecessor, there are parts that feel like the backing tracks to children’s book readings. Mostly, these accompany Anderson’s forays into spoken poetry, which are enjoyable for some, but, understandably, not for everyone. Detractors rest assured, though, that these strange interludes are setups for some heavy and pristine rock. Tracks like “Banker Bets, Banker Wins,” “Shunt and Shuffle,” and “Kismet in Suburbia” can stand up against any of the hard rock offerings in Tull’s history. Tying the two together are folkish, dreamy sequences, the quintessential example of which is “A Change of Horses.”
If you want to rock from start to finish you’ll get a little bored. But if you don’t mind some calm waters between the rapids, the interplay between the two is flawless. If you happen to be a fan of Jethro Tull or prog rock in general, trust that you have only to acquire this magical album to be nothing but happy for 53 minutes. Anderson has obviously aged, just as his fictional protagonist has, but there’s plenty of life and more cleverness yet in this old fox. If you’re new to this scene but are brave enough to leave the commercial mainstream, give Thick As A Brick 2 a try. You may walk away hating it, but you’ll have a hard time claiming that it’s anything but a pure original. And for any listener, but especially fans, the last 30 seconds are perhaps the best part of the album. You might hate yourself for thinking it, but you’ll find yourself admitting that there was no other way for Thick As A Brick 2 to end. Give it a listen to see what I mean.

Softball battles Ducks for seeding By Cameron Moon Daily Wildcat Arizona softball sits just one spot behind Oregon in the most recent RPI poll and is set to welcome the Ducks to Hillenbrand Stadium for a threegame series starting tonight at 7. Oregon is not the toughest team that Arizona (31-12, 8-7 Pac-12) will play, but the series is crucial. As the postseason draws nearer, the Wildcats are making a push to be in the top eight in the RPI. They currently sit ninth, behind Oregon. Solidifying a spot in the top eight will allow head coach Mike Candrea and his team to breathe a little easier on selection Sunday. “The goal is to get in the top eight,” Candrea. “It makes you feel a little bit better when you know you might have a chance, but I don’t like to leave it up to selection committees, that’s for sure.” The selection committee is in charge of selecting not only which teams make the tournament, which is a sure thing for the Wildcats, but also which schools will host games. A top-eight showing means that the Wildcats would have the opportunity to play both the regional and super regional rounds of the playoffs at

good for first in the Pac-12 and second nationally — versus the hitting ability of Oregon, whose batting average of .313 ranks 23rd in the country and fifth in the conference. “This time of the year, everyone’s got pretty good information on you,” Candrea said. “It’s a big weekend for us because of the RPI right now. We can help ourselves dearly by playing well and winning some games.” Despite the mounting pressure on what is one of the Wildcats’ last chances to impress the NCAA selection committee, senior Karissa Buchanan says her team is ready for the challenge. “It’s just like any other weekend,” Buchanan said. “It’s important to win. The rankings always come up at the end. If we can win as many games as we can, it makes us feel like we’re actually getting somewhere.”
Baseball takes break from Pac-12 schedule By Kyle Johnson

Former Arizona running back Keola Antolin said he takes inspiration from some of the smaller running backs in the NFL, such as Darren Sproles and Ray Rice.
New breed of backs gives Antolin hope Former UA running back may get a shot in the NFL despite size By Mike Schmitz Daily Wildcat
Long gone are the days of Jerome Bettis-type running backs dominating the NFL. While physicality is still the name of the game, smaller, more agile and elusive backs have carved out a niche in the league. These scat backs, as they’re often referred to, have taken the NFL by storm. Guys like Maurice Jones-Drew (5-foot-7, 208 pounds), Ray Rice (5-foot-8, 212 pounds), and Darren Sproles (5-foot-6, 190 pounds) have created a market for less physically imposing players, and former Arizona running back Keola Antolin couldn’t be more thankful. “I’ve watched a lot of MJD, Darren Sproles. They open up doors for little guys like me,” said Antolin, who stands at 5-foot-7, 196 pounds. “They motivate me.” Although Antolin isn’t expected to hear his name called by Saturday’s end of the NFL Draft, there’s a market for players like him in the NFL, and he’s been working to prove that. He was rock solid in his four years at Arizona as he rushed for more than 500 yards every season and racked up 26 career rushing touchdowns, good for fourth in Arizona history. Antolin’s 10 rushing touchdowns in 2008 were a freshman school record. The Las Vegas native also proved his worth catching the ball out of the backfield. Antolin caught 25 or more passes in each of his final two seasons and accumulated 401 receiving yards and three touchdowns during that time, while leading the Wildcats in rushing last season. “I always thought Keola was awesome. I was really happy to see him get a much bigger role,” said former Arizona offensive tackle Eben Britton, who was selected 39th overall by the Jacksonville Jaguars in the 2009 NFL draft and played with Antolin in 2008. “I know last year and the year before
that they started utilizing him more. I’ve always thought Keola was a tremendous player.” After last season came to an end, Antolin continued training in Tucson with former teammates Paul Vassallo, C.J. Parish and David Douglas in preparation for the UA’s Pro Day and eventually the 2012 NFL Draft. “We really pushed one another,” Antolin said. “I’ve just been training and keeping in shape just to get that phone call.” Antolin’s hard work resulted in a solid Pro Day, when he ran a 4.54 40yard dash, put up 20 reps on the bench press, showcased a 35.5-inch vertical, and completed the 3-cone drill in 6.96 seconds, among other solid times. He said he received good feedback from his agent, Wynn Silberman, and scouts, although he’s expecting to go undrafted. “I’ll probably be a free agent, but we really don’t know,” Antolin said. Even if he doesn’t ever get off the draft board, former Arizona cornerback Nate Ness — who went undrafted in 2009 and has been a member of the Jets, Seahawks, Dolphins, Redskins and now the Rams — assured him that going undrafted doesn’t mean his football career is over. “He gave me a lot of good information, talking about if your name isn’t called, there’s still opportunities for you to get on a team and make it,” Antolin said. That’s most likely what Antolin will have to do, but he’s willing to work his way up anywhere that gives him a chance. Britton believes whoever ends up with the former Wildcat running back will be happy they took a risk on the 5-foot-7 bowling ball. “I’m sure somebody’s going to get a diamond in the rough with him,” Britton said. “I’m sure that he really hasn’t had any kind of exposure but he’s tough as nails and he’s a great football player.” For now, Antolin said he’ll sit back and avoid the stress that comes with watching the draft. “I don’t think I’m going to watch it. I just want to not worry about it,” he said. “I’ll probably chill out, hop in the pool a little bit, and hang out with the family.”
Daily Wildcat The No. 11 Arizona baseball team starts a three-game series today against East Tennessee State in the Wildcats’ last regular-season game against a non-Pac-12 team this season. But even though the Pac-12 is one of the strongest conferences in the country, it has been the non-conference games that have given the Wildcats more trouble this year. Arizona (26-13, 12-6 Pac-12) has lost all four of its non-conference games since the Pac-12 season started March 16, and five of its last six altogether. “All we can do is just learn from our past,” sophomore Johnny Field said. “Learn that we can’t go into these non-conference games and take anyone lightly. We have to go in like it’s a regular Pac-12 Conference (game) and do what we got to do.” Fortunately for Arizona, it’ll be a weekend series against East Tennessee State (19-21), and it’s been the midweek games where the Wildcats have mainly tripped up. Arizona will be able to send out its usual starting rotation, including Friday starter Kurt Heyer. Heyer is 4-0 this season in nonconference games and said he knows not to take the Buccaneers lightly. “It’s just another outing, it’s just another opponent,” Heyer said. “It doesn’t really matter who we’re facing, I still have to make my pitches. I can’t underestimate these guys because they’re probably going to come in here hungry. If I let my guard down a little then they could pounce on me a little bit. I just have to keep the same mentality.” While the Wildcats will be able to send out most of their everyday players this weekend, there is a chance one of the usual suspects will be absent in center field.
GORDON BATES / Daily Wildcat
Arizona starter Kurt Heyer said he won’t be affected by the UA’s struggling bullpen.
In last Sunday’s game against Washington, junior Joey Rickard sat on the bench with a bone bruise on his knee. This was the first time in 157 games that Rickard wasn’t playing for the Wildcats, and he may have to wait until next weekend to start a new streak. Head coach Andy Lopez said nothing was damaged too severely in the knee. Team doctors said Tuesday that Rickard could be available against East Tennessee State. Lopez said that if Rickard isn’t 100 percent, then he won’t play this weekend. With Rickard injured and Arizona
in a little slump — the team has lost four of its last six games against Pac-12 teams — Lopez said the break from the conference schedule couldn’t have come at a better time. But beyond that, the Wildcats have an even more pressing and long-term concern that Lopez hopes this weekend can begin to repair — the performance of closer Mathew Troupe. The freshman had been one of the few dependable arms out of the pen, but after blowing two saves in his last two appearances, Lopez said it is
Former quarterbacks coach taking ‘redshirt year’ at home Scelfo not coaching after two seasons on sidelines at Arizona By Mike Schmitz Daily Wildcat After athletic director Greg Byrne hired Rich Rodriguez as Arizona’s head football coach, the majority of the UA’s assistants knew their Wildcat careers were over. There seemed to be hope for UA quarterbacks coach Frank Scelfo, however. He was on the same staff as Rodriguez at Tulane and the two had a longstanding relationship. Scelfo was already familiar with incumbent starting quarterback Matt Scott, and it made sense that he would be the position coach
that Rodriguez kept around. But Rodriguez eventually decided to bring on Rod Smith as his quarterbacks Frank Scelfo coach. Smith former QB coach had been with Rodriguez at Michigan and West Virginia, and even played for the UA’s head honcho at Glenville State from 1993 to 1996. “He had a guy who had been with him for 10 years,” Scelfo said. “Rich knew what he wanted there. Rod Smith is a great coach. I could have maybe stayed at another position but that’s not what I wanted to do.” Scelfo added that he evaluated
all of his opportunities and didn’t want to just “take a job to take a job.” So after almost 30 consecutive years of coaching, it was time for Scelfo to take a break. “I might take a redshirt year this year,” Scelfo said with a laugh. “I’ve got an opportunity to do some things I haven’t been able to do in a long time, spend time with my family, watch my kids play.” Scelfo’s son, Anthony, is in the Tampa Bay Rays’ farm system. His youngest son, Jordan, who graduated from Tucson’s Salpointe Catholic High School, is a freshman quarterback at the University of Incarnate Word in San Antonio, Texas. Scelfo’s been able to catch a few of Anthony’s spring training

Walters takes step back for the ‘big time’ By Mike Schmitz Daily Wildcat
Ryan Walters came to Arizona as a prodigy. In August 2010, a 24-year-old fresh out of a four-year career at Colorado arrived in Tucson as a graduate assistant with his former CU coach Greg Brown. In less than one year, Ryan Walters was named the UA’s secondary coach, making him the youngest assistant in the Pac-12 at the time. Even after Brown left Arizona before the 2010 Alamo Bowl, Walters learned under Mike Stoops to continue his path toward becoming a head coach. He quickly earned the respect of his players, due to his youthful perspective, and the coaches, because of his work ethic and knowledge. But when Stoops was fired halfway through last season, Walters’ progression hit a snag. Rich Rodriguez went on to bring in his own staff and Walters was out of a job.

imperative to get him back to his earlier form. “Troupe’s had two rough outings, but like I told him, ‘Hey, if this is the worst thing that happens in life, you have a great life ahead of you,’” Lopez said. With an already struggling bullpen, Arizona needs to get one of its better pitchers back into form as the Pac-12 season winds down. But so far for Lopez, one of the best remedies for the bullpen has been the ability of the three
The 26-year-old had some offers to be a position coach at smaller schools, but Walters wanted to land with a big-time program. When Stoops was named defensive coordinator at Oklahoma and Tim Kish took a job as a linebackers coach with the Sooners, OU made Ryan Walters perfect sense. former DB coach Walters had to take a step back and accept a job as a graduate assistant, but in the end, taking on a career path at a school like Oklahoma was too tough to pass up. “There were other possibilities, I just felt like at this time in my career this was the best fit for me,” Walters said. “Just being part of a program as prestigious as Oklahoma, getting to see what big time football was all about. It was more of a conscious decision just being with Mike again. I feel like me and Mike have a really good relationship.”
weekend starters to pitch deep into the games. “You don’t have to worry about your bullpen if your starters are going seven, eight (or) nine,” Lopez said. Heyer said he doesn’t let the struggles of the bullpen affect his approach on the mound. But even if he does need their help, Heyer isn’t concerned about his security net having a couple holes in it. “If something does happen, I have all the trust in the world in them,” Heyer said. “I know that they’re struggling a little bit right now, but they’re going to battle through it. These guys are tough enough to do it.”
from page 7
On his experience at Arizona: “I loved the time here. I’m disappointed, I thought we could have done more two years ago. We could have easily had a 10-win season. It’s not the players. We as coaches could have done more. That was such a disappointing season. After coach Stoops there was a lot of turmoil. One thing I can say is that when you got a guy like Nick Foles, he held things together from a player’s standpoint.” On working with Foles after the Combine: “Obviously for me it was a great experience because of the opportunity teach him the pro style offense. This was an opportunity to see him grow as a quarterback. Working on his drops and his footwork. That was all such a positive thing.”
games, as well as Jordan’s spring game. He even had a few special guests with him. Nick Foles, who lived with Scelfo for a month after the NFL Scouting Combine, and his family drove from Austin to San Antonio to catch the game and take Jordan out to dinner. “Him and I are so close,” Foles said. “I got really close to his family also.” While Scelfo will enjoy his year off, he’s not calling it quits just yet. “I’ll continue to coach,” he said. “I love this too much.” Scelfo’s destination? “Anywhere really. I really want to get in on a great staff. A good job depends on who you work for and who you work with,” he said. “It doesn’t matter if it’s in the Pac12 or Division III. It could be a high school job and I would take it, it doesn’t matter.”
Q&A On how OU spring ball went: “Spring ball went well, getting young guys to get reps. We didn’t have any injuries so that’s always a plus.” On his experience at Arizona: “I had a great time at Arizona. Definitely learned a lot. Especially learned a lot about the business side about the profession. We did the best we could there. I don’t feel like it was a failure. There are a lot of factors in the way the season played out. I thought what Mike did was incredible, especially on the handicaps put on the programs with academics and facilities.
Track hosts ASU, NAU in Double Dual meet By Emi Komiya Daily Wildcat
The field events will start up this weekend on Saturday afternoon at Drachman Stadium followed by the running events in the evening as the Arizona track team hosts the Double Dual meet. The UA, ASU and NAU will gather to compete for in-state titles in the single-day meet. “This weekend is about the in-state rivalries,” head track and field coach Fred Harvey said. “Everybody gets excited for the showdown. We’re going to get after it pretty hard.” The Wildcats are coming into the weekend with the men’s team at No. 13 and the women at No. 8, sitting in the top 10 for the first time this season. “Everybody’s pretty fit right now on both sides, with everyone getting ready for conference championships,” Harvey said.

The level of competition will vary this weekend, offering the team an opportunity to participate at all levels. ASU’s men’s team sits at No. 3 and the women at No. 10. NAU is unranked on the season. Junior Jen Bergman and sophomore Lawi Lalang will split from the squad to compete in running events at the Payton Jordan Invitational on Sunday in Palo Alto, Calif. “We’re sending Jen and Lawi to compete in a set of after-competition,” Harvey said. ‘She’s looking to get the Olympic “A” Standard this weekend and for Lawi to gain more confidence.” The main goal for the Wildcats this weekend is to continue to prepare for the upcoming Pac12 Championships and maintain that upward trend to reach top performance by then. The Pac-12 Championships begin May 12 in Eugene, Ore.
BCS recommends four-team playoff, would start in 2014 KANSAS CITY, Mo. — College football fans complained, and the Bowl Championship Series listened. A group of the 11 BCS conference commissioners plus Notre Dame athletic director Jack Swarbrick recommended a four-team postseason event during their meetings in Hollywood, Fla., which concluded Thursday. There’s plenty to resolve. How will the four teams be selected — by a committee, BCS standing or polls? Where will the games be played — in bowls, at neutral sites or on campus? How will revenue be shared? But change is coming because of wide dissatisfaction with the current BCS system. “They’re listening to the fans,” BCS executive director Bill Hancock said of the commissioners. “They get that they want something different.” The commissioners will present as many as seven options for a four-team playoff to conference spring meetings in May and June. After getting feedback from the schools, the change must be approved by the NCAA Presidential Oversight Committee. Hancock said he hopes to have a resolution by July 4. The conferences could still reject all of the ideas and make no changes, but that’s not likely after two days of meetings that signaled change. “We will continue to meet and review the exact structure for what a new postseason could look like,” Hancock said. “We will present to our conferences a very small number of four-team options, each of which could be carried out in a number of ways.” One thing that won’t happen is an eight- or 16-team playoff, the commissioners
The year before we were ranked as high as seventh or ninth in the country. It was a great learning experience.” On Oklahoma compared to Tucson: “The community is great. The fan support is phenomenal. There’s just so much Southern hospitality.” On his goals at Oklahoma: “My goals stayed the same from when I was at Arizona. I want to be a position coach again, then a defensive coordinator, then a head coach.” On his relationship with Trevin Wade and Robert Golden: “I’m going to stay in touch with them for the rest of our lives.”
announced. Any change won’t begin until the 2014 season. The current BCS system has two years remaining on a contract that takes the national championship game to south Florida after the 2012 season and to Pasadena, Calif., after the 2013 season. Among the scenarios for a four-team playoff: Semifinal and final sites rotated among existing BCS sites: Fiesta, Sugar, Orange and Rose bowls. Semifinals rotated among current BCS sites with the championship played at a neutral site selected through a bid process, such as Cowboys Stadium in Arlington, Texas. All three sites would be determined through a bid process. Semifinals at campus sites, although the idea endorsed by the Big Ten, doesn’t have wide support. “I think it has more disadvantages than advantages,” Southeastern Conference commissioner Mike Slive said. Selecting the teams also will be a process. Should a four-team field be available only to conference champions? If so, last year’s BCS champion, Alabama, wouldn’t have participated. The commissioners also said they want the championship game to be played closer to Jan. 1, keeping college football a onesemester sport. The BCS was created for the 1998 season to provide college football with a meeting between the two highest-rated teams based on a combination of polls and computer rankings, and the process has stirred controversy in most years.

provides is really quite extraordinary.” As dean of UA Libraries, Stoffle said she ensures the libraries are aligned with helping the campus achieve its goals. “I think she is a very good dean,” said Roeland Hancock, a psychology graduate student and president of the Graduate and Professional Student Council. “She’s always made an effort to be very open and transparent with how the library is run. I think she’s done a really excellent job of providing the essential services of the library on a strained budget.” Stoffle also said she focuses on using fiscal and human resources to maximize the resources available to the campus community. “I have a great respect and admiration for Carla,” said Robyn Huff-Eibl, an access and information services team leader who works under Stoffle. “She has enabled the staff here to learn about new processes, to focus on our users and she has allowed us to receive training on process improvements so we can become efficient at the work we do.”

check the books out and didn’t have to worry about having to replace them,” Stoffle said. “It put books in the hands of kids who didn’t have books and that made a big impression on me.” This influenced her decision to enroll in library school after returning from the Peace Corps. Stoffle initially wanted to work in a general public library, but after she graduated, she took a job at Eastern Kentucky University. There, instead of waiting at a desk for students to come to her, Stoffle said she always tried to find ways to bring students in. She came to the UA in 1991 after working at several other universities. “Everything sort of worked toward coming here and being a dean at the University of Arizona,” Stoffle said. “I like the people and I like the opportunity to be involved and the environment the University of Arizona

“The analysis that was done a couple of years ago showed that these tax breaks for film makers really didn’t pay for itself and that’s why these tax breaks went away,” Vest said. But Sen. John Nelson, the bill’s sponsor and a Republican who represents Litchfield Park, said HB 2127 differs from the earlier program because it no longer grants a sales tax break. It would cut the income-tax credit to 20 percent from 30 percent and prevents unused tax-credit dollars from rolling over from one year to the next. The bill, which needs a final vote in the House of Representatives and could be decided on this week, is also creating a divide in the Republican party at the state level. “Most taxpayers probably thought $10 a ticket was too much for a movie, and now this,” said Steve Voeller, president of Arizona’s Free Enterprise Club, said in a news release.
