Garden cultivates community By Kyle Mittan DAILY WILDCAT
With the UA Community Garden, Students for Sustainability and ASUA are working to close the gap between the university and surrounding communities. The UA Community Garden, an effort that has been in development throughout the course of the last year, is in its final planning stages. Open to anyone, the garden provides a place for a person or group of people to rent out a plot and grow a number of plants, primarily for food. The garden is located at the
corner of East Mabel Street and North Highland Avenue, adjacent to the northeast corner of the Highland Avenue Parking Garage. The area contains 42 sunken beds, some measuring 18 by 3 feet, others 20 by 3 feet. While other entities, such as the UA Office of Sustainability, the Associated Students of the University of Arizona and the UA Department of Soil, Water and Environmental Science are involved, Students for Sustainability headed the project. “As far as the management aspect of it, we want this to be very student-run, very student oriented,” said Sofia Montes, a fall
2011 graduate in crop production and former co-project manager of the Garden in the Desert project. “So it’s been mostly just a lot of student volunteer work.” But despite the project’s independence, collaborations with colleges and other departments are a possibility. “We haven’t really established a solid partnership with very many people besides ASUA and Students for Sustainability,” Montes added. “But that’s definitely a future goal. We want to have classes taught here as well.” Given the department in charge of the project, it’s no surprise that
sustainability is a primary consideration. The garden’s irrigation system runs on a solar-powered timer, and will run at night to minimize water evaporation. Additionally, the garden will use compost from the Student Union Memorial Center, a resource that would otherwise be food waste. “We built it with the idea in mind that it’s going to be as sustainable as it can be and we’re going to do everything to mitigate the amount of resources that we’re using for it,” said Natalie Lucas, executive program director of Students for

Warrior Project. The students’ supporters also helped with food, and the four students were even given a free night stay at a hotel in Florence, Ariz. “We’re just four guys walking out in the middle of the road trying not to get hit by angry Arizona drivers,” Dornbrook said. “The real value and momentum that we got was from people who were supporting us.” The Wounded Warrior Project aids veterans who are physically wounded or need psychological assistance. As an army veteran and benefactor of the Wounded Warrior Project, Terry said he has seen firsthand how helpful the organization is, not only to soldiers returning home, but also to those who are evacuated and sent to hospitals all over the world. “When you’re evacuated out of

City of Refuge Ministries combats child slavery, specifically the enslavement of children in fishing communities surrounding Lake Volta, the largest man-made lake in the world. The orphanage physically rescues enslaved children and provides them with shelter, food, clothing, education and medical care. Every day, children are kidnapped and enslaved by fishermen on the lake. Many of these children are forced to fish for 15 hours a day or more. They are beaten, starved and exploited by their masters, many of whom were slaves themselves, Penn said. “You know, these kids, they have

Tech Launch Arizona, headed by UA President Eugene Sander, is a hub that allows UA students and researchers to get their inventions out in the marketplace. Sander and Len Jessup, the dean of the Eller College of Management, are spearheading the program, which will provide a more direct avenue for UA inventions to be licensed out to companies. Tech Launch, which began in November, will promote all types of concepts, such as science and research, in addition to inventions from students within the entrepreneurship program and patents already in the process. “We are really thrilled about this new thing called Tech Launch,” Sander said. “We want to do a better job on our part to transfer Arizona technologies and research out into the public sector.” The program is partnered with the Eller College. According to the 2012 U.S. News & World Report survey, the McGuire Center for Entrepreneurship ranked third-best among the public schools of America. Sander said he hopes to make Eller students, especially those in the entrepreneurship program, more visible to public investors. Organizers say they hope Tech Launch will accelerate economic development in Arizona through innovations from all departments on campus. Tech Launch updates are reported to Sander directly. A committee to oversee the program has also been formed consisting of Jessup, UA administrators and outside officials. Sander said that, for now, Jessup is the executive director, but Tech Launch is still accepting applications for the position and are looking for someone with both science and business experience. Leslie Tolbert, senior vice president for research at the UA, is in charge of inviting the private and public sectors to help publicize Arizona inventions. “We do a good job publishing it, but we don’t do the best job we could to see that the good ideas make it out to practical use,” Tolbert said. Right now, Tech Launch does not have a physical location. Jessup, Tolbert and Sander have said that their long-term goal is to construct a physical area to house Tech Launch projects.
Surely there’s nothing left to do but enjoy our remaining year and, when the day arrives, kiss our loved ones goodbye and hope our exit is painless.” PERSPECTIVES — 4 HI

Adam Block’s photo of the stellar nursery SH2-239 was featured as NASA’s Astronomy Photo of the Day on Dec. 8, 2011.
What is Sh2-239’s story and where can you see that in the photo? This is the beginning of a story that will eventually lead to a star cluster. Right now, this is a big cloud of gas and dust in which stars are forming. The picture provides a three-dimensional perspective, because there is a cloud that extends upward and then this thing coming out of it. That is where stars are being born. When stars start their lives they usually have winds — they literally blow things away from them. In the image there’s a cavity with little red things inside of it. Those are the stars and their outflows are forming and blowing stuff away.
images you use a camera that is a little more sophisticated than a regular digital camera. The difference is you can expose it for a very long period of time and the chip is cooled (meaning the chip is literally made colder), making the electronics more sensitive to light and more capable of detecting very dim objects. You physically attach the camera to the telescope and then you calibrate and focus your instrument. When you’re taking the picture, you need to track and compensate for the
movement of the telescope as you’re acquiring the data. Then, you use specialized software on a computer to take that data and calibrate it to remove all the instrumental artifacts and noises. You align all of the images and combine them so you get a color picture. Now, the camera records more information than you can display on your computer monitor at any one time. So, as someone who’s trying to present the image, I get to choose, at some level, the contrast, the brightness
Will this photo be used in any way? Where does it go from here? I think of this photo as a form of “astrophoto,” scientific tweeting. This is what the Hubble Space Telescope has been doing for years. Astronomers specifically set aside time to take pretty pictures and release them to the public saying, “Hey! Here’s the pretty universe out there!” Other scientists may want to use the data in another way, and it may be published elsewhere — the photo doesn’t necessarily have to go anywhere from here.

Finelli organized the first 100 Mile Hump in Virginia this year, where he lives. Though the Wounded Warrior
Project has become a large-scale organization, the 100 Mile Hump is fairly new and still growing. According to Dornbrook, this was a way for him as a civilian to support our troops. “I think we have duties not only as U.S. citizens,” Dornbook said, “but as global citizens to support American troops.”
spreading the word among their classmates in the Semester at Sea program, many of whom donated to the cause immediately, Penn said. Finding Refuge works to spread awareness about child slavery while supporting City of Refuge Ministries. Since its inception, the organization has raised about $11,000 in contributions and donated a basketball court to the orphanage, Penn said. Finding Refuge also runs a program called Save a Slave, which allows individuals to donate $1,000, all of which goes to rescuing, rehabilitating and educating a child. According to Penn, City of Refuge Ministries is able to rescue a new child each month. While Finding Refuge has seen considerable growth since it was founded, Penn said the greatest challenge he and his fellow founders face is expanding. “We’re kind of at this plateau now where we need something to bump us up to the next level if we’re going to get there, and we don’t know what it is,” he said. In order to promote his cause and
gain support, Penn organizes fundraisers about once a month. He also sells Finding Refuge wristbands on the UA Mall and at concerts like N9NE Fest. Additionally, Finding Refuge offers internships, organizes summer trips to Ghana and continues sending students to visit City of Refuge Ministries through the Semester at Sea program. For Penn, getting involved in the fight against child slavery and starting Finding Refuge has turned him into a “walking advertisement for nonprofits,” he said. In fact, he said he plans to continue working with Finding Refuge and other nonprofit organizations for the rest of his life. “I’ve learned a lot, that giving really does feel better than getting,” he said. According to Penn, the easiest way to help Finding Refuge is raising awareness about the organization. “It really is all about word of mouth,” he said. “Get involved, go to Ghana. Just go and you’ll be changed, you really will. And then that person will change five others, and then he’ll change five others, so it’s like this trickle effect. It’s a beautiful thing to watch happen.”

nothing,” Penn said. “But the cool thing was the smiles on their faces were bigger than I’ve seen anyone’s on campus.” Penn and a small group of students spent one day at City of Refuge Ministries, where they met the founders of the organization and the children who live there. The students learned that many of the children they were playing with had once been slaves along the shores of Lake Volta. After discovering that the children were victims of slavery, the students were overcome with a desire to help. “We just knew we had to do something,” Penn said. “We went there and, you know, pretty much every (student) gave whatever they had in their pocket. They gave 20 bucks, 50 bucks or whatever, clothes.” The students were so determined to help the orphanage that upon returning to their ship, they started their own nonprofit organization, Finding Refuge.

Totally psyched College student experiences firsthand the pros and cons of contraband, offers her take on drug laws and what she wished she knew about tripping By Greg Gonzales Daily Wildcat
Krystle Cole has tried more psychedelic drugs than all of the Beatles combined, personally knew the operators of the biggest LSD laboratory in history and lived through some of the most profound and darkest experiences a human being can have, such as run-ins with the law and bad trips. A native of Kansas and former Tucson dweller, Cole is a pursuing a master’s degree in psychology from Capella University. Through her experience, she became an expert in psychedelics and safe drug use, penned a book called “Lysergic” and founded Neurosoup.com, a website that focuses on trying to educate people on responsible drug use.

They had the largest LSD lab in the world, and they got busted about six months after I met them. During that six months I was with them — and a couple of years after — I did a lot of different psychedelics and entheogens which taught me a lot of things.
Where do you see the drug laws going these days? Is it getting better or worse? I think it’s getting a lot worse. For instance, substances like LSD and MDMA, they might not be 100 percent safe, but compared to a lot of the research chemicals out there, they’re very safe. The research chemicals that are on the market, like MDPV … (the government) will find a drug out there, like the research chemicals, they’ll schedule it, and then the people out there — the drug dealers — will just find more Daily Wildcat: Could you research chemicals to sell. And tell me a little about your these research chemicals, some of education? You dropped out of them can be highly damaging to high school at 15? people. Cole: It just wasn’t working So I think that is one major out for me, so I went for the problem with our drug laws, first semester of high school, that our government shouldn’t and that was it. So after that, be making people say, “OK, do I I went to college and I got my want to break the law and cause associate’s degree by the time I was 18. And then I kind of started myself to go to jail, if I get a felony making some bad decisions … big conviction, I won’t be able to get my student loans to go to college.” decisions that greatly impacted So people are thinking about that, my life. and it’s like, “OK, well, illegal I met some people (William drugs could cause me major legal Leonard Pickard and Gordon Todd Skinner) who were chemists. problems. I don’t want that.” And
then they’re like, “OK, what can I get legally? I can buy this stuff that’s a research chemical on the Internet and it’s legal, so I’m gonna do that!” And that’s what the user’s thinking. The government’s trying to act like they’re doing something good for people’s health by making all of these substances like LSD and psilocybin mushrooms illegal, but those things have some proven safety profiles. You can have bad trips on them, true, and you can get (hallucinogen persisting perceptual disorder) and flashbacks in a very small percentage of the population primarily with LSD. But comparatively, with research chemicals — there are numerous ones, I could list them off for you — we don’t know if they’re going to be addictive or if they’re going to cause brain damage or if they’re carcinogenic. They have no idea, but that’s what the people are doing now to get around the drug laws. … I mean, of course I think we should have our personal freedom to do what we want. If we want to use entheogens for spiritual purposes, we should be allowed to. I think the worst thing right now is that (drug laws) are damaging people’s health because people are dodging around them by using research chemicals.
Concert aims to promote civility, local musicians Michelle A. Weiss / Daily Wildcat

Hats, boots, coats among worthy winter fashions
Ben Folds is a man of many faces. Whether he’s a judge on NBC’s “The Sing Off,” befuddling Chatroulette users, or covering Dr. Dre songs, it can’t be denied that he’s a hell of a performer. In addition to his longstanding musical career, Folds has an altruistic side, having contributed to Operation Smile, a global organization which helps repair facial deformities in children, and most recently to Tucson’s Fund for Civility, Respect and Understanding. Founded by the family of Ron Barber, Congresswoman Gabrielle Giffords’ district director and a victim of the Jan. 8 shooting, the Fund for Civility is a testament to Tucson’s ongoing recovery from the tragic shooting last year through community service and unity. On Jan. 15, Ben Folds and Tucson natives and local favorite Calexico are headlining the Concert for Civility at the historic Fox Tucson Theatre. The concert, the second of its kind, is organized with the ideal that the community can be reminded of its need to act as a strong and cohesive foundation on which a sense of

local pride can be wrought. Folds and Calexico will be accompanied by local acts such as the Silver Thread Trio and Mariachi Luz De Luna to further enhance the provincial theme. In the same vein as Luz de Vida, a compilation album featuring Tucson and Tucson-related acts produced by Fort Lowell Records, this concert is sure to promote the idea of community by utilizing one of the most powerful unifying tools we have — loud and proud local music.
Sporadically cold weather means that all we need are a few chic pieces to work with the unpredictable weather this season. This winter, you’ll want to invest in a chic hat, a coat and a pair of boots that will spice up your wardrobe.
Vintage-style cloche hats are making their way back into stores. A red or black hat will instantly glam up an outfit. Red adds a pop of color and, like black, goes with just about anything. So incorporating red into the outfit is a great way to have fun without being too matchy-matchy. The cloche hat will not only
keep you warm and cozy this winter, but will work as a stylish fashion accessory for any season.
Boots that kick
It’s hard to find a comfortable and fashionable shoe to wear all day on campus without resorting to sneakers. That’s where boots come in. Boots can be worn with just about anything. Plus, they’re comfortable, and many boot styles are timeless. If you’re going to make an investment and choose only one, a fabulous pair of leather combat boots or over-the-knee boots can be the perfect addition to any closet. Combat boots are edgy and surprisingly versatile. Whether you pair them with slouchy socks, leggings or wear them with your jeans tucked in, they never fail to be a rockin’ statement piece.
Over-the-knee boots, on the other hand, are sleek, stylish and feminine. If you’re going to buy a pair of these, fold-downs, buttoned or zippered boots are practical and chic. These boots work great over leggings or skinny jeans, and they’ll keep your legs from freezing.
Tucson weather doesn’t always require full-blown winter coats, but you’ll be thankful for these pieces when the winds pick up. A thigh-length pea coat or trench coat will serve you well on colder days, and now is the time to buy them, as the New Year sales are almost over. Macy’s usually has a great selection of coat styles and H&M carries equally fashionable and wallet-friendly choices.

Will the world just end already? Andrew J. Conlogue Daily Wildcat
or some, New Year’s revelry was tinged with a grim realization: 2012 is also the last year the human race will see. For years now there has been talk of Dec. 21, 2012. This is the last day of the Mayan calendar, a timekeeper so surprisingly accurate that many believe the only possible explanation for it ending on this date is that afterward there will be nothing left of humanity for the calendar to chronicle. The concept has already been turned into a big-budget film, “2012,” which depicts the world ending. If Hollywood has weighed in, then surely there’s nothing left to do but enjoy our remaining year and, when the day arrives, kiss our loved ones goodbye and hope our exit is painless. Or not. Historically, the world is facing its ultimate demise all the time. In the year 999 A.D., Catholics waited with trepidation for Pope Sylvester II, the first French pontiff, to hand over all of Christendom to the devil at the stroke of midnight on Dec. 31. A brave few actually attended a midnight mass he presided over, but many others across Europe climbed their closest mountain to get a scenic view of Earth’s destruction. Then in 1999, exactly 1,000 years later, the human race braced itself for computers unable to switch over to the next millennium and the carnage this flaw would surely reap. In Bisbee, Ariz., the leading men of the community gathered in key places, such as the courthouse and the post office, to establish a visible network for its denizens in case of the apocalypse. In 2011, Harold Camping said Judgment Day would be on May 21, only to be forced to revise his declaration and postpone our total destruction. With all the forecasting of the end of the world over the years, it seems apocalypse watching is more of a pastime than anything else. What does that say about humanity, a species that turns its own total destruction into a hobby? Humans are inherently fearful of death and for reasons that are not totally illogical. Death is, perhaps, the last great mystery. We know more about the distant corners of the universe than we will likely ever know about death. Our individual demise is a reality that we generally do not live with comfortably, and the eventual death of all humanity is that much less comfortable for us. So why do we insist on seeing it around every corner? Perhaps it’s to give us a feeling of control. If we know the date and the hour, so to speak, we can get our affairs in order, or at the very least be able to say “I told you so” to those who didn’t have our foresight. The best solution to this apocalypse-mongering is not to engage in it. There’s nothing to be done about our individual or collective deaths aside from accepting its inevitability and moving forward. Or the next best thing to do is to look at this unending chain of predictions irreverently. College students can be heard making wry quips about spending their entire life in school, and if word of mouth can be trusted, Dec. 21 may be one of the biggest party days on record. If we have to wrangle with the headache that is the apocalypse, then, as with so many other things, laughter is probably the best medicine. — Andrew J.

Inhalable caffeine not a good idea Kelly Hultgren Daily Wildcat
here’s a new inhaler on the market that isn’t just reserved for people with breathing problems. Breathable Foods Inc. just released AeroShot Pure Energy, an inhaler filled with a mixture of caffeine and energizing vitamins to enable your fix in one effortless puff. Harvard professor David Edwards’ innovation allows you to inhale your caffeine. According to the product’s website, a couple of its advantages are its ability to go anywhere and its instant effects. If you’re feeling groggy in class and you can’t leave, or you’re in a room where
no drinks are allowed, you can now pull out the AeroShot device, take a hit and get back in the zone. AeroShot may quickly become the new party drug. Even though AeroShot’s website says the product isn’t intended to be mixed with alcohol, that doesn’t mean people won’t. Shortly after energy drinks like Red Bull and Monster surfaced, so did the idea to marry them with alcohol for an enhanced, intoxicated experience. Once the mix swept colleges and party scenes across the nation, so did the research labeling the potent
combination as highly dangerous. In a study released last month by the journal Addictive Behaviors, the findings reiterated caffeine’s power to skin a person’s perceptions and cognitively mask alcohol’s effects. Another example is the rise and crash of canned, caffeinated alcoholic beverages like Phusion Projects’ Four Loko. In November 2010, after a reported rise in hospitalizations and deaths, the Food and Drug Administration issued warning letters to Phusion Projects and three similar companies to cease the manufacturing of these types of beverages, according to the FDA’s website. AeroShot meets FDA guidelines, but so did Four Loko at its birth. Now the drink is back on store shelves without caffeine and stimulants. Again, the trouble with AeroShot isn’t its contents. The idea of people needing to have an inhaler filled with caffeine is a little over the top, but
caffeine is a dietary staple for countless college students. There’s not an excessive amount of caffeine in one AeroShot canister, with each holding roughly 100 milligrams total — the equivalent to one cup of coffee. But that doesn’t mean people will stop at one inhaler. Despite the scientific findings, people will still guzzle vodka and Red Bull as long as it gets the job done. Products like AeroShot are making this dangerous practice all the more readily available. When going out for the night, students can throw AeroShot inhalers into their pockets or purses and achieve that same dangerous buzz with any alcoholic beverage. If you must puff, please puff responsibly. — Kelly Hultgren is a senior studying journalism and communication. She can be reached at email@example.com or on Twitter via @WildcatOpinions.
wo semesters ago, amongst the controversy of the Associated Students of the University of Arizona presidential election, I wrote my concerns to the Daily Wildcat about the presidential election being based on a foundation of popularity rather than being based on a foundation of real substance. Also, I wrote about how the presidential winner should actually earn the opportunity and trust he “won” from the election by the actions and contributions he made within ASUA.

semesters ago in the Daily Wildcat, newly elected President James Allen wrote his one article stating that he was going “to address … flaws” within the ASUA organization, and try “to restore legitimacy … in an effort to remind students why it is important to move forward.” He stated that he would “accept the challenge to earn” our “trust and restore faith in” ASUA. I believe he has failed to accomplish the goals he said he would accomplish. The real questions are whether or not you, the students, believe that
the ASUA president has achieved what he set out to do. Did he address the flaws in ASUA? Did he restore legitimacy? Did he earn your trust and restore faith in ASUA? You should voice your concerns. After all, the ASUA president is a representative of the student body, whether or not you voted for him, or whether or not you concern yourself with ASUA. The potential candidates for the upcoming ASUA elections should take a lesson from last year’s elections and the mistakes that past presidents have made. A president
shouldn’t be based on popularity, but on experience, wisdom and character. However, the cycle seems to repeat itself and will again in the future. Allen has one more semester to accomplish the goals he set himself to achieve. I wonder, if a different president had been elected, one that didn’t start off his or her presidency with controversy, how ASUA would be functioning and what accomplishments would they have achieved. — Thompson Whatoname, psychology and philosophy senior

Police Beat By Elliot P. Hopper Daily Wildcat
A man was arrested during winter break for shoplifting from the UofA Bookstore after an employee saw him put a scarf in his pocket. When the man went to pay for items in his hand, the employee noticed that the man never took out the scarf. When the employee approached him outside of the bookstore, the man claimed it was his and that he had paid for it already. After the employee inspected his receipt, the employee called the University of Arizona Police Department. UAPD officers arrived and found that the man had three warrants out for his arrest. A UAPD officer informed him of his rights and he was sent to Pima County Jail.
No more cameras for chemists
UAPD officers responded during winter break to a report about lost or stolen items from the Chemistry building. When UAPD officers arrived and spoke to UA officials, the officials told them that a digital camera and a camcorder had been taken from a desk drawer. Police and a university official contacted other officials and asked if they had taken the items from the drawer. No one said they had borrowed the items. Police have no suspects at this time. This is the second theft reported from the Chemistry building in the last six months.
Towel not a sufficient hiding place
A UA student reported that his iPhone 4S was missing on Tuesday. The student told UAPD officers that he went to the Student Recreation Center to play basketball. He placed the phone under a towel before he began playing. When the student returned at 6 p.m., he noticed that his phone was missing. Officers asked around and helped him search for the phone, but did not find it.
Unknown caller disturbs student
UAPD officers responded during winter break to a student who reported an unknown caller had called her and was breathing heavily into the phone while speaking to her. She asked who was calling and what the phone call was for, but the unknown caller did not reply. The unknown caller told the student that he had done this before several years ago. The girl noticed the breathing intensifying, and she hung up and called the police. Officers called the number back when they spoke to the student in person, but the unknown caller did not answer. The student was given more information in case the unknown caller called again.
Damaged property in Psychology building
UAPD officers went to the Psychology building after a UA employee noticed that an office door had been damaged. The lock and wood frame had been stripped away completely. The UA employee told the police that he had not seen anyone come down the hallway and that he had been there earlier. UAPD searched the surrounding areas for evidence and suspects, but found nothing. Photos of the door were taken and placed into evidence. The door and lock were replaced. Police Beat is compiled from official University of Arizona Police Department reports.

Arizona finds its stroke from 3-point range, overcomes Oregon State’s hot shooting to outlast Beavers in overtime By Nicole Dimtsios Daily Wildcat
Clutch shooting, overtime and the Arizona men’s basketball team’s first scrap of the season all culminated in the Wildcats’ 81-73 overtime victory over the Oregon State Beavers on Thursday. The game reached its emotional peak after senior Kyle Fogg hit a layup off a defensive rebound by Josiah Turner and was fouled by OSU’s Jared Cunningham. Fogg’s celebratory yell and bump to Cunningham’s shoulder took things to a boiling point in an intense contest between the two schools right in front of Arizona’s bench. Wildcat players hustled under Arizona’s hoop to defend Fogg and Wildcat head coach Sean Miller lost his tie trying to hold back 7-footer Kyryl Natyazhko. “I didn’t even remember taking off my tie,” Miller said. “I’m not trying to show off or whatever. Somehow my hands got to my tie and took it off.” Natyazhko and OSU’s Joe Burton were ejected for leaving the bench at the 1:15 mark of the overtime period, and both Fogg and Cunningham were given technical fouls — the fifth foul for each player. “I’ll classify tonight’s game as our best win of the year,” Miller said. “We had to be resilient. We had to fight through some bad plays, and we fought very hard.” The Wildcats and Beavers went to overtime after Fogg hit the gametying layup with the clock ticking down in regulation, tying the game at 72. Beaver guard Ahmad Starks, who had scored the OSU’s last nine points, took a wide-open 3-pointer after a move to shake sophomore guard Jordin Mayes, but missed and the game went to overtime. “I feel bad for Ahmad Starks because he had the game winner,” Miller said. “He hit a couple tough ones to put his team in position to take that last one.” Before Fogg’s make, the Beavers and Wildcats had battled basket-tobasket with neither team leading by more than four points from the nine-minute mark on. The Wildcats clawed their way back into the game with an 8-0 run sparked by Brendon Lavender’s two 3-pointers with 12 minutes to play. “He made five threes at key moments in the game. It seemed like they all came when our backs were against the wall,” Miller said of Lavender’s shooting performance. “Every shot he took was a big one.” Despite the struggles from beyond the arc last weekend, it was Arizona’s 12-for-22 effort from 3-point shooting that kept the Wildcats in the game against the Beavers.

matched a career-high with 18 points, but said hitting five of six 3-pointers was much more satisfying. “It was more meaningful to me because I think those shots came at
a really clutch time,” Lavender said. “Kind of sparked us.” Freshman guard Nick Johnson snapped out of his funk, scoring 19 points and making 3-of-4 from
The skirmish near the end of the overtime period had a lot of emotion, but Miller said it wasn’t something the game should be remembered for. “There’s a lot of emotion and young people sometimes can get carried away,” Miller said. “It was just a hard fought game. I don’t really have any comment.” Athletic director Greg Byrne said the Pac-12 Conference would look at the tape today before an official announcement would be made about possible suspensions. However, he said that to his understanding of the rule, he doesn’t believe suspensions would be handed out.
Arizona hockey goalie cleared for action after second concussion By Kyle Johnson Daily Wildcat
The last week and a half is one that Arizona hockey goalkeeper David Herman might want to forget. Herman missed last weekend’s series with San Diego State after showing concussion-like symptoms following a shot to the mask in practice last Wednesday, and he’s questionable for tonight’s matchup with Michigan State at 7:30 p.m. in the Tucson Convention Center. Of course, all of this is happening while the Wildcats are battling for their first postseason berth since 2004. “It’s the worst feeling in the world,” Herman said. “I couldn’t even sit and watch the games (last weekend), I was down in the locker room area. You just want to be out there with your teammates.” Herman said he’s been symptom-free for the last few days and was cleared to return to practice Thursday. But to complicate things, this isn’t the 5-foot-8 junior’s first time dealing with a head injury. He missed extended time last season after suffering a concussion at ASU last January when a Sun Devil kneed him in the head during a collision. Then he was hit by a slapshot between the eyes and

suffered a mild concussion in his first game back. Even though his health is the No. 1 concern, Herman said he hates watching his teammates battle on the ice for a playoff spot while he sits idly by. But while Herman feels ready to get back on the ice, the coaching staff isn’t so sure. It’s hard for any player to be able to contribute in a game after missing extended action, let alone one that’s the last line of defense against pucks that can travel more than 90 mph. Associate head coach Dave Dougall said that while Herman has played well in key games, they need him to face live shots before they play him over sophomore Steven Sisler or freshman Bob Schultz. But even if Herman isn’t able to play, the goalkeeper cupboard isn’t bare. Sisler has been effective in his opportunities this season, including a 5-1 victory against San Diego State last Friday and a shootout victory over No. 7 Iowa State in October. “Sisler played well (last weekend),” Dougall said. “Shultz stumbled a little bit in the first period, but then he played well as the game went on, so he got his confidence. We’re confident in what we have in the goaltending aspect.” A loss against the ACHA Division

II Spartans wouldn’t deliver a knockout blow to the Wildcats’ postseason hopes, but they can’t afford to give away games with the daunting schedule that lies ahead of them. “We’re right at the bubble right
now,” Herman said. “We can’t overlook any opponent or take any games lightly … It doesn’t matter if they are D-II or D-I. We’re going to come out and get ourselves hopefully in position to have a national tournament bid.”
rizona men’s basketball needed a spark. Until Thursday, the Wildcats were drifting through their season, not yet deemed a Pac-12 leader, but not yet doomed for the doldrums of the conference. Arizona was stuck in mediocrity characteristic of a young team lacking a superstar. Halfway through the year, Arizona was at a standstill. In a wide-open conference, the Wildcats were hurting for a seasonchanging victory full of toughness and emotion. Slump-busters were welcome and manhood had to be tested. Arizona’s emotional overtime win against Oregon State on Thursday night in McKale Center was the perfect remedy. The Wildcats withstood Ahmad Starks’ white hot late-game shooting as he drilled 3-pointer after 3-pointer in the faces of anyone who decided to take on the challenge. They overcame Jared Cunningham’s 22 points, careerhigh four 3-pointers and constant ability to get to the line. Solomon Hill, Kyle Fogg and Jesse Perry played through four fouls late in the game to lead their team to victory. Arizona wasn’t bothered by Hill and Perry’s combined 10 points and 16 rebounds. None of that mattered. “Being strong at the end of the game is an important quality to have,” head coach Sean Miller said after the game. The Wildcats developed that quality on Thursday. They held the Beavers to 0–for-7 shooting in the overtime period and wouldn’t back down from OSU’s scrappiness. After Fogg bumped Cunningham following his game-ending and-1, a scuffle broke out and not one Wildcat was ready to concede defeat. Miller even lost his tie as he entered the fray. While that seems like a minor detail, it’s hard not to come together as a team when members sees their coach in the trenches fighting for his guys. “You know coach, man, he’s a real intense guy,” Brendon Lavender said. “He loves to win. So to see that passion, it really pumps us up. It’s a great feeling.” While fights should never be condoned, Arizona needed a game like Thursday’s. From the late-game scuffle to the lights-out defense in overtime, this could be Arizona’s turning point. This could be the game that the Wildcats look back at and say “that’s when we clicked and really came together.” Albert Einstein once said, “Adversity introduces a man to himself.” When a team overcomes that adversity — Starks’ shooting, Cunningham’s play, Hill and Perry’s ineffectiveness, a tough L.A. trip a week earlier — the effect is even that much greater. Back in January 2009 when Houston’s Aubrey Coleman stepped on Chase Budinger’s face, Arizona pulled together, won the game in overtime and went on to defy the odds against coach Russ Pennell to make it to the Sweet 16. Following that victory against Houston, the Wildcats rattled off six straight wins, capped by an upset win against then-No. 6 UCLA. While that was a much more talented Arizona team than this year’s squad, that Bruins team featured the likes of Darren Collison and Jrue Holiday. You may have heard of them. The point is, games like Thursday night’s have a way of bringing teams closer. They bring teams together so that when they’re in another trying time during Pac-12 play, they can remember that time they fended off Starks, Cunningham and Oregon State in McKale to snatch a muchneeded win. Arizona may not have a NCAA Tournament bid-worthy resume right now, but if Thursday’s win has the impact that it’s capable of, that could change soon enough. — Mike Schmitz is a marketing senior.

Hogan reflects on first half, Q A looks forward to postseason
By Kyle Johnson Daily Wildcat
The Arizona hockey program underwent a number of major changes during the offseason, but the Wildcats are right in the thick of the playoff hunt and sit at No. 18 in the American Collegiate Hockey Association rankings. Led by first-year coach Sean Hogan, the Wildcats have found a sense of normalcy and routine that was lacking in years past. The Daily Wildcat caught up with Hogan to see how the Arizona job stacks up with his expectations, how the players have adjusted to a culture change and what the Wildcats need to do to make the postseason.
Daily Wildcat: How would you assess the team’s performance through the first half of the season? Hogan: I think we’ve done pretty well. We’ve won three games against ACHA top-10 opponents which hasn’t been done here in awhile, we’re ranked No. 18 which is the highest since 2006, and we’re three spots away from making our first national tournament since 2004. We had a few hiccups along the way — the loss to Colorado (and) the loss to (No. 17) Central Oklahoma in a game we were up by two goals. Those are things that stick out the most to me, but on the overall picture of it, we are in a

What does this team need to do to reach the national tournament? Well it’s going to be important that we don’t have any hiccups. We need to try and find a way to win these two games this weekend, and then it will be really important if we can somehow get a sweep of (No. 13) Davenport, that would be tremendous, try to steal one from (No. 3) Arizona State, and try and steal one or both from (No. 10 Minot State). I think that will get us in.
Ticket sales high for first season at Hi Corbett Field By Alex Williams Daily Wildcat
There are still 35 days until the start of Arizona’s baseball season but the UA has already more than doubled season ticket sales. Prospective season-ticket holders got their first look at the UA’s new home at Hi Corbett Field during a select-a-seat event last Saturday, and senior associate director of athletics James Francis said the school sold about 500 season tickets — up from 180 sold for the 2011 season. Athletic director Greg Byrne said he hoped the move off campus would help cut the baseball program’s operating deficit by about $250,000 through increased ticket sales and increased concession revenue. Beer will be sold for the first five innings of each home game. Still, Byrne said he was taken aback when he showed up a few minutes late to the event, which was scheduled to start at 9 a.m., and saw a line of fans wrapping around the outside of the stadium. “It was great, wonderful to see,” Byrne said. Head coach Andy Lopez said the team hopes to be entirely moved into the facility around Jan. 19, and the Wildcats will continue to hold individual workouts at Sancet
Stadium until then. The first official day of practice is Feb. 1. “We’ll never have anything but unbelievable emotions for the field at Sancet Stadium, but what a great time for these young guys,” Lopez said. “If we do what we’re supposed to do, it’ll give us a chance to host some regionals here.” The facility at Hi Corbett Field offers the baseball program nearly three times the space it had while on campus, including covered and lighted batting cages, a small room housing rehabilitation equipment and an auxiliary practice field. There’s also an academic room at Hi Corbett, where tutors will be available throughout the day so players don’t have to make the drive back to McKale Center where most athletic facilities are housed. The team’s locker room will feature two flat-screen TVs and a wall decorated with the logo of each school in the Pac-12 Conference. There will also be a large block “A” painted on another wall. The video board that’s been in use at Sancet Stadium will be moved behind the left-field fence at Hi Corbett Field, and the team’s shower and training facilities won’t be shared with other teams like they are while the team played on campus. There will also be a small weight room at Hi Corbett,
but the majority of the team’s weight training will still be done on campus. But while enough remodeling was finished for the team to be able to move in before the season starts, there’s still work to be done. Lopez said “we’ll see how it goes” this season as far as moving the outfield fences closer to home plate, Byrne said there are still a number of improvements he’d like to see at the stadium. “In time, we’re going to want to improve the video technology that we have out here,” Byrne said. “People may notice that I like video boards, so you’ll see that at some of our venues.” Improving the seating surrounding the field is something that will happen in the next few years, Byrne said, and shaping the facility into one that’s recognized as belonging to the UA won’t happen overnight. There’s also going to be a trialand-error process to figure out the best way to run day-to-day operations during the first season at the stadium. “What will happen will be an evolution,” Byrne said. “Four, five years from now, it’ll look even more branded to the University of Arizona. But even the initial steps we’ve taken … I’m really impressed with how it’s coming together.”
W-Hoops starts slow, drops second straight Freshman Erin Butler has career day in loss to Oregon Ducks By Zack Rosenblatt Daily Wildcat
Prior to Thursday’s game against Oregon, women’s basketball head coach Niya Butts said the No. 1 key to slowing down the Ducks “is slowing down their transition game.” Arizona found out that things are often easier said than done,
and the Wildcats lost the game by a score of 87-73. Oregon (10-7, 2-3 Pac-12) burst out of the gate with a 19-3 run and, despite Arizona opening the second half with a 23-11 run of to bring it within eight, held a commanding lead throughout the night. The loss was Arizona’s (124, 1-3) second straight. Arizona starting guards Shanita Arnold and Davellyn Whyte struggled, combining to shoot 9-of32 with seven turnovers. Freshman Erin Butler picked up some of the slack off the bench, scoring a
career-high 23 points. Arizona shot a measly 22-of-67 overall, and 13of-38 from 3-point range. Butler shot lights-out from beyond the arc, finishing the game 7-of-10 from 3-point range in what was the California native’s first significant action of the season. Butler had only played in eight games prior to Thursday, scoring a total of 13 points in 7.5 minutes per game. Arizona will try and snap its two-game skid in Corvallis, Ore., on Saturday when it faces the Oregon State Beavers.

Arizona jumper Brigetta Barrett has turned into one of the best track athletes in the country. Barrett placed first in the World University Games last summer.
UA track opens season with high expectations By Emi Komiya Daily Wildcat
Nine conference champions are returning to the Arizona track and field teams, and that didn’t go unnoticed in preseason rankings. The Wildcats kick off the 2012 season Saturday at the Lumberjack Invitational, hosted by NAU. The U.S. Track and Field and Cross Country Coaches Association preseason poll was released Tuesday, with the men’s team checking in at No. 9 and the women’s at No. 10. The men’s team features NCAA cross-country champion Lawi Lalang, who is joined by two-time All American and 2011 Pac-12 Champion senior Stephen Sambu, as well as Chris McSwain, Bozidar Antunovic and Nick Ross. Lalang was also named to the preseason men’s watch list for the Bowerman Trophy, the nation’s top award for collegiate track and field. Lalang, a sophomore from Eldoret, Kenya, is coming off of an undefeated cross-country season and conference championship in the 5,000-meter run. But despite his success in distance running, Lalang said he prefers sprints and events that cover shorter distances. Sambu, who won the Pac-10
championship in the 1,500-meter run last spring, was redshirted for the 2011 cross-country season and hasn’t competed since his conference championship. “I am very excited to compete,” Sambu said. “I expect to run my personal best time but it won’t be anything big because it’s my first race.” Cross-country and track and field director Fred Harvey and associate head track and field coach James Li will lead a stacked Wildcat lineup during 2012 season. “I think this season will be different from all the seasons that I have been here because the boys are doing really well and our freshmen are strong,” Sambu said. Two-time NCAA shot-put champion junior Julie Labonte, two-time NCAA champion high-jumper Brigetta Barrett, relay member senior Georganne Moline and 10,000-meter distance runner Jen Bergman are all defending conference champions that return on the women’s side. Barrett was also named the 2011 Field Scholar Athlete of the Year and is ranked No. 6 in the world after placing first at the World University Games this summer. She and Labonte both made the preseason 2012 Bowerman Award women’s watch list.

that damaging?” I believe that some drugs should be illegal, like cocaine, crack, heroin, meth. Those things should probably stay illegal. I don’t think they’re helping the public in any way. In fact, they’re probably damaging the public. Things like LSD and psilocybin, I think they are helping people, and they can help people when used in the right set and setting. Also, I guess with medical marijuana, a lot of places are doing medical marijuana now. Isn’t Arizona one of the new medical marijuana states?
So when it comes to drug laws, what exactly is your ideal? When you look at something like heroin, it’s really bad for you. It’s addictive, it’ll ruin your life, it’ll ruin your family members’ lives, it’s going to make it so you can’t go to work, you’ll steal, try to do anything you can to get heroin. It’s highly addictive. There are substances out there that aren’t doing that kind of damage that are also in the schedule one category. I think that’s what needs Yeah, they voted it in last year, to happen to drug (policy) reform: but Gov. Jan Brewer is against it. The government needs to look at Yeah, medical marijuana is one and ask, “Are these drugs really
Our government just won’t accept that they’re so stuck in the social stigma of what entheogens are. I think also, at some level, the powers that be might not want the social destabilization that happened in the 60s with the hippies, everyone taking LSD. I don’t think that they really want that to happen again because people may wake up Some have said they can and say, “Hey, I don’t want to actually cure addictions, right? wake up and go to work every Exactly. They’ve done lots of studies on LSD before it was made day to buy what the TV tells me to buy and to take all the illegal. Using LSD to cure people prescription medications to with alcoholism, they had good results. As well as substances like make me happy. I don’t want to ibogaine, which are being used all buy into the system, I want to realize that happiness is created over the world to treat substance by something far deeper and abuse and addictions. But not far more fundamental to being here in the U.S. human than having a good job good thing that’s happened with drug law reform. Some people are seeing that cannabis is not a(s) damaging as what people have made it out to be. And I think entheogens — psilocybin and LSD — are in that same category. They’re just not as damaging as people think.

and paying my taxes.” I think it’ll be destabilizing, so I think that’s part of why they don’t want entheogens to be legal. What advice would you have for us entheogen-hungry college students? If it were me, and I could go back to being 18, before I made some poor decisions, I would be more careful in choosing who I decided to trip with and who I decided to trust at that level. Because, that’s been the biggest mistake for me: the people I chose to hang out with while I was using entheogens. And (I wish) I would’ve had the resources back then to look things up on the Internet and educate myself.
Our pick for the weekend: The Wooden Ball By Arts & Life staff Daily Wildcat
Tucson’s best musicians, singers and songwriters are “going unplugged” for an acoustic concert called The Wooden Ball. The show is now a Tucson tradition, started in the mid1980s at the old Nino’s Steakhouse with a musician named Chris Holiman, a then-member of River Roses. A few years ago it expanded to a two-night format, hosting consecutive sets at Club Congress and Plush. Closing
in on two decades of existence, the concert this year benefits the Primavera Foundation, a charity focused on transitioning people out of poverty by aiding their move into the workforce, providing them with housing and pushing for neighborhood revitalization.
