Spring Fling returns for 45th anniversary BY MARK LAWSON @MarkLawson_1

The 45th annual Spring Fling is set to kick off Friday, April 12, and last through Sunday, April 14 ,on the University of Arizona Mall. The student-led and student-focused event will provide three days of carnival rides, games, food booths and entertainment to the UA and Tucson communities. The event itself is planned out and organized by a total of nine student directors. Public health student Samantha Pear is the executive director of the event this year but has also worked different roles for the event the previous two years. She said working the event is essentially a year-round task. “Spring Fling directors apply at the end of spring semester and begin their work upon being selected to the position,” Pear said. “Essentially, the directors work on the event from May to May. Depending on the position, directors will work anywhere from

10-20 hours a week.” While a year of work for the event might seem excessive, it is easy to see why the planning process is so extensive when the event takes place. Spring Fling is one of the largest student-run carnivals in the nation, attracting over 25,000 people over the three-day period. Over 40 rides and game booths along with 20 different food booths will also take part in the event. “The selection of clubs is a difficult task, as it is an extensive and competitive application process,” Pear said. “The process begins in October, and clubs are selected before the end of the fall semester. All applications are reviewed by the Spring Fling team as well as our advisory team.” The event not only has a big impact on the Tucson community, it is a tremendous fundraiser for the UA community, as well. The event raises funds for more than 30 campus clubs and organizations each year, with each receiving complete and

thorough information about the event and its impact. Pear said besides the impact on the UA, a big part of what they do is being able to give back in the form of books and meals to the city of Tucson. “Spring Fling has grown tremendously since 1974,” Pear said. “Considering that this has been a University of Arizona tradition for 45 years and is still growing, the event is all thanks to the hard work of the students and supporters on and off campus … Last year, we were able to donate over 2,500 canned food products, equating to nearly 2,083 meals. We have also donated over 2,000 books as well. We are proud to continue these partnerships with Community Food Bank of Southern Arizona, Campus Pantry and Reading Seed.” For those new to the UA or who have never been to a Spring Fling, Pear says the team of directors made sure to emphasize digital content to spread awareness.

While the Ferris Wheel may be slow, your heart rate won’t be. With swinging benches, heights that make people on Earth look like ants and only a bar holding you in, it’s no surprise the Ferris Wheel makes the list. Dangling at the top of the Ferris Wheel may be the best place to take a selfie but the worst place if you’re afraid of heights.


While there are no sharp turns, sudden stops or heights, Alien Abduction is the one ride your stomach is bound to drop in, and all the yummy Funnel cake you just ate might come back up. Upon entering the alien spaceship, everyone must claim a spot leaning against the wall. Then, the whole machine starts spinning, and they open up the floor since the friction made stronger and pins you against the wall. If you like spinning rides, this is sure to take you out of this world.

2 A ride that defies the rules of gravity may sound fun to the most daring of us. The G-Force pushes, pulls, spins, flips and turns you just about as much as possible. First, riders are placed in a triangle-shaped seat, so they face the others and then start spinning. Next, you are lifted off the ground and begin to spin. On top of all that spinning, the ride starts moving like a pendulum and eventually flips all the way around. If you’re like me, breaking the laws of gravity almost sounds scarier than breaking the law. 5. COURTESY WIKIMEDIA COMMONS 4. A photo from the 1976 Spring Fling. H. DARR BEISER | THE DAILY WILDCAT 3.

Ever wonder what falling off a building feels like? Well, you can practically find out on the Mega Drop, a ride which, after being shot up in the air then dropped, is supposed to be a thrilling experience. After being strapped into the ride, riders get a view of the carnival before plummeting all the way down, hoping the ride catches you. If you’re looking to fall for your Spring Fling date, maybe this type of fall isn’t for you.


Coming in at the number one-scariest ride at Spring Fling carnival is Mach 1, the tallest and most expensive attraction at the carnival. The ride can easily be identified for its insanely tall height, fast speed and constant shrieks from riders. At each end of the ride, four lucky (or unlucky) riders are strapped into the ride and get to ride all the way to the top and back down really quickly. If you are not afraid of speed, spins, height or death, you should try this ride.

A special UA, Tucson tradition since 1974 COLUMN

BY ALEC SCOTT @DailyWildcat


ne of the quirks of living in Tucson is our short spring; from a winter of only a few months and lows in the 50s, the supremacy of the sun brings with it a very immediate transition from the half-cold months of January, February and March into the hot months of June, July and August. That short, almost two-month transition is our Tucson spring, so whenever we have to start turning our ACs back on, that is the sign that Spring Fling is once again upon us. A mainstay of campus activities since 1974, Spring Fling brings together the Tucson community and the student body better than almost any other event held on campus. The benefits of Spring Fling are twofold: While being a pretty enjoyable way to distract yourself from rapidly approaching finals, it is also a major economic boost for the city and helps keep the University of Arizona local. Every year, over 25,000 people come on campus to take part in its activities, from great local food and amusement rides to arts and crafts. By participating in the process, students at the University of Arizona are patronizing the many businesses invited to campus to provide food and entertainment to the

many guests. The economic benefits of Spring Fling are huge. So many people coming to campus and spending their money at booths around the university means businesses get name recognition, a large customer base and an environment that encourages people to sample their goods. In addition, Spring Fling differs from the more distant Pima County Fair, which is held way outside of town off the highway, making it difficult for those who live farther in Tucson or only have access to public transportation. Since the University of Arizona is more geographically central, more people can visit, not only to ride the rides, but also to experience the atmosphere of Tucson. Although not as tangible as the economic impact of Spring Fling, the university’s continued patronage of the many businesses of Tucson helps keep our university interlinked with Tucson and its community. Many students come here from out of state, and Spring Fling is a good way to make the city more personal and easy to connect with for those students. It helps tie the campus to Arizona and gives the university a more unique and specifically local atmosphere to it, which is important for a college to encourage. It may not seem obvious at first, but the coming together of thousands of Tucsonans on campus also helps make the university a more welcoming and open site not divorced from the rest of the city. If the University ever loses that openness, we risk losing touch with the people whose taxes pay our budget and whose students fill our classes. The criticisms often levied against Spring Fling are legitimate, however. Tickets for rides are expensive, and for the

three days the fair is in town, parking is a nightmare, hurting those students who are not interested in attending but are still stuck paying for it in lost time and convenience. In past years, I often avoid the rides entirely to save money, and I empathize with anyone who feels bad parting with over thirty dollars for a pass to the rides for the day. However, when you consider the pay structure of the Pima County Fair, whose rides have such insanely high ticket costs to ride you essentially have to drop the 35 dollars required to get a day pass, it does not seem as wild. And even further, I normally just attend the fair to enjoy the food and walk around with friends, so even those who do not want to put down so much money have ways to stay entertained. While parking gets exceptionally tricky for the three-day affair, that it is concentrated on Friday, Saturday and Sunday means most students are not likely to be punished for the fair, as the hotspots for visitors are on days with either no classes or fewer classes. This limits the total damage done and makes the situation better for everyone; fewer students taking classes during the fair means less competition for parking and means students are free to participate with their free time. Altogether, Spring Fling is a great community activity for both the Campus and the City of Tucson, despite complaints made in the past. — Alec Scott is a junior studying political science and German studies who volunteered for the 2014 Ron Barber Congressional Campaign.

The Ultimate Festival Survival Guide

There are plenty of articles online about having fun at festivals – their advice includes practical ideas like: download the festival app, drink lots of water, pack for all weather, and bring a refillable water bottle, sunblock, and more.

Like you, most people attending festivals want to have a great time and enjoy the experience. Sadly, there are a few who go with the intention of taking advantage of or hurting others. Because they exist, consider taking: • People you trust, because when you are cranky from dehydration, no privacy and sleep deprivation, you want people who still have your back no matter what. • Social media mindfulness, because you don’t want posted social images to become the highlight of future employment background checks. • Closed beverage containers or drink lids; Google: “Guy caught on camera spiking a girl’s drink at festival” and see for yourself why this is so important. • Doses of Naloxone or NARCAN (opioid inhibitor) and a sense of

wariness and caution over homemade food and drugs. Drugs sometimes seen at festivals: MDMA (ecstasy, molly), Xanax, etc. can be contaminated with deadly doses of fentanyl (synthetic opioid). Drugs can also be hidden in foods or drinks offered to you. Many opioid overdoses occur to those who never meant to take them. If you, or someone you came with, gets exposed to an opioid and stops breathing, you can save a life by administering an inhibitor right away. To get/find out more about Naloxone/NARCAN, go to your pharmacy or Sonoran Prevention works For drug test kits and more risk reduction strategies go to

• A venue map so you can know your exits. Fires, riots, and active shootings are rare but pose real risks. If you are with friends, it’s wise to set up an exit plan with meeting places inside and outside the venue if you get separated. Remember, the more prepared you are, the easier it’ll be to relax and have a good time.

UA sports to attend during Spring Fling weekend BY JACOB MENUTTI @jacob_mennuti

Spring Fling is this weekend on the UA Mall, and while the rides and food figure to be quite the attraction, there are several Arizona sports taking place on campus as well. Here are the different sports you can go see throughout the threeday event. Women’s Tennis Arizona women’s tennis will match up against conference rival Oregon this Friday. The ‘Cats are coming off one of their biggest wins of the season after beating No. 42-ranked Denver last weekend 4-3. This is the second time this season the UA has defeated a ranked team. The last time Arizona beat two ranked teams in a season was 2014. The Wildcats now hold a record of 10-10, with just two more matches before the Pac-12 tournament on April 24. The team has dominated at home this year, putting up an impressive 10-3 record in those contests. Camila Wesbrooks, Talya Zandberg and Gitte Heynemans will be the players to watch this weektend, as they all lead the team with 10 wins. First serve is at 10 a.m. at the Robson Tennis Center. Beach Volleyball Head out to Bear Down Beach this weekend, when No. 14 Arizona will host its final tournament of the season. Games are Friday at 1:30 p.m. against Ottawa, and 5:30 p.m. against Santa Clara. The Wildcats will then play New Mexico on Sunday at 10:15 a.m. and Santa Clara again at 1:30 p.m. Arizona is rolling through its schedule after sweeping the ASU tournament last weekend, going 4-0 with their biggest win of the season coming against No. 7-ranked Cal Poly. The team has now won seven straight and eight of its last ten. The Sand Cats’ offensive firepower has been spearheaded by the pairing of Natalie Anselmo and Madison Rigdon. The duo is now 13-0 since being paired together in the middle of the season, improving Anselmo’s individual record to 19-2. Rigdon and Anselmo haven’t been the only ones on fire, as the freshmen have dominated since the beginning of the season. Sarah Blacker and Jasmine Safar are 18-3 together, and Dana Parker is 17-4 with her partner Anise Havili. Arizona is getting hot at the right time, with just eight matches remaining before the Pac-12 Tournament in Los Angeles. Baseball The Wildcats will open up the weekend with a three-game series against California. Games will start at 6 p.m. Friday and Saturday and conclude with a 1 p.m. game on Sunday. The Golden Bears are riding a six-game win streak, with an overall record of 17-11. They are led by junior first baseman Andrew Vaughn, who is slashing a .344 batting average with 10 homers and 30 RBIs. After failing to pick up a win in the road trip against No. 1 UCLA and No. 7 Arizona State, Arizona ended its sevengame losing streak with a three-game sweep at home against Washington last weekend. The ‘Cats are now 16-14 after the series sweep that was highlighted by a dominant 14-2 win on Saturday, followed by Andrew Nardi’s 10-strikeout performance in 5.2 innings pitched last Sunday. First baseman Matthew Dyer also had a big weekend at the plate, going 9-14 with two doubles and a triple. Arizona outscored the Huskies 30-9, and the team hopes to carry that momentum over into this weekend’s matchups.

ARIZONA’S KHALIL TATE TAKES the ball down the field during the Spring Game on April 14, 2018, at Arizona Stadium.

What to look for in Spring Football game BY ALEC WHITE @alecwhite_ua

Watch the Arizona football team begin the 2019 season with its annual Spring Game on Saturday, April 13, at 5 p.m. in Arizona Stadium. Admission is free and will include an autograph session after the game. Parking is $5 and a fan fest will take place at Bear Down Field right outside the stadium at 2:30 p.m. If you can’t attend, the game will be streamed on the Pac-12 Network. The roster is headlined by returning players like linebacker Colin Schooler, senior quarterback Khalil Tate and All-American running back J.J. Taylor. Arizona will also be supported by a talented freshman quarterback Grant Gunnell, who is the all-time passing leader in Texas Prep history. Four-star recruit and wide receiver Jalen Curry will continue his chemistry with Gunnell, as the former high school teammates look to be the future cornerstone of this team. Here’s a rundown of three things to keep an eye on at the game: Quarterback reps While Tate is assumed to enter the 2019 season as Arizona’s starting quarterback, offensive coordinator Noel Mazzone doesn’t plan on treating the senior as QB1. “We’re going to give everybody equal shots,” Mazzone said earlier this spring. “Everybody’s going to go in. We rotate them all through. They pretty much all get the same amount of reps. It’s a pretty level playing field right now.”

This means Gunnell, as well as junior Rhett Rodriguez and sophomore Jamarye Joiner, should see increased playing time in the spring practices. Where’s the beef? The defensive line is still a work in progress, as the team looks to replace 300-pounder PJ Johnson after losing him to the NFL Draft list. Junior college transfer Myles Tapusoa is out with an undisclosed injury, and another JUCO lineman, Trevon Mason, won’t be on campus until summer. This means JB Brown will likely have a big role on the interior of the defense. Listed at 258 pounds, the junior moved from defensive end to defensive tackle in hopes of adding more size. “Finton Connolly has been doing a nice job” on the inside of the line, according to head coach Kevin Sumlin. Jalen Harris will be placed as an edgerusher, according to Sumlin. Starting spring practices around 240 pounds leaves the junior still a little undersized, but he said his goal is to be up to 250 soon. Straightening out the corners After missing the majority of the 2018 season with injury, senior cornerback Jace Whittaker will be looked upon as the team’s top cover man, but newcomers will be making a push for rotational spots. Jaden Mitchell and Christian Roland-Wallace are a few names to keep on eye on. “He’s athletic,” Sumlin said of RolandWallace. “And the thing that’s really surprised everybody: He’s been playing corner, he can run, he can jump.”

Student band debuts at Spring Fling BY MARGAUX CLEMENT @margauxclement9

Spring Fling will arrive on campus the weekend of April 12, opening the stage to a group of University of Arizona students called Space Force, who are set to perform Sunday, April 14. Space Force is composed of lead guitarist Martin Niemiec, Ryan Zenhausem on drums, Alex Siegel on bass, singer Faiz Rafique and guitarist Matt Olenski. The band met during their freshman year at the UA when they were all living together in the same hallway of a dorms. “We’ve been meaning to play together for a while, but we didn’t actually come together as a band until about a year ago,” Zenhausem said. The name Space Force came about when the group was simply joking about a space-themed band, and the name stuck, Niemic said. The members said they agreed they consider themselves a pop-rock band, but the style of music they play can alternate. “It varies, we have some punk rock going on, a little bit of Indy alternative, but all sort of within the framework of rock,” Niemic said. Spring Fling will also be Space Force’s first time performing with each other in concert and with a live audience. “It’s kind of nerve-wrecking, but we’re

funnel cake feud Funny how “Funnel cake worth fighting for” never took off as a tagline for Spring Fling, even though it contributed to an altercation between two men at the 2009 carnival. University of Arizona Police Department bike patrol officers spotted a fight going on between two men near one of the rides. A woman was attempting to drag one of the men away from the fight, telling him, “We need to leave now.” The man did not seem to be taking her advice and instead proceeded to yell at the crowd. One of the officers grabbed the man’s arms

overall excited,” Niemic said. He also said they’ve been trying to perform at parties for a while, but haven’t found physical venue to play at until now. “I feel we have a lot of passion for [making music], but I think coming together is important, because we all have a sort of different music taste. And then blending that together makes a somewhat unique sound,” Zenhausem said. He said starting off as a group of friends before becoming a band has helped the process of coming together. He also said he finds their group dynamic pretty interesting. “I don’t know what kind of preconceptions people have about dudes that are in rock bands,” Niemic said. “We have engineers and other types of scientists, and we just come together and play some good music. It’s kind of cool that way.” According to Zenhausem, since the members are all students who aren’t music majors, it can cause some communication problems, and at times everyone has their own vision of what the music is to be like. “We’re not even disagreeing, it’s just hard to convey what you’re thinking,” Niemic said. “If you have a musical idea, you can’t beam it into someone else’s head. Everyone might have a different idea of what you mean.” Zenhausem said they have had many moments where they clashed, but always

and instructed him to sit on the ground. The man told the officers he and his friend, the woman who had been pulling him away, were standing in line for funnel cake, when a second man, who was also with a woman, pushed him. The first man pushed back, which led to a hostile verbal exchange. Shortly after, the first man and his friend saw the second man and his friend in a different area of Spring Fling. The men began to argue again, which this time escalated to the physical fight police broke up. Police then interviewed the second man, who gave a significantly different account of how it all went down. The second man told the officers that, while waiting in the funnel cake line, the first man’s friend pushed the second man’s friend, and that’s what started the initial argument. The groups then separated, but spotted each other again about half an hour later. According to the second man, the first man walked up to him and began to argue. The second man was under the impression that the other man had the intention to hurt the second man’s friend, so he stood between the two. That’s when the fight began. The second man’s female friend was

came back together from it. “We take a step back, and we’ll just play for five minutes and get it out of our systems, or we’ll go to focus on something else and come back to it,” Zenhausem said. Space Force will be playing a total of five songs on April 14: three originals and two

cover songs. “I think it can be kind of inspiring for some people, because we’re not all musicians. We come from different backgrounds, and we take time out of our busy schedules,” Niemic said. “If we can do it, anyone else can.”

knocked down during the fight. The woman with the first man was alleged by the second man to have kicked her in the face. She also took the woman with the second man’s cell phone and car keys. The officers noted the friend had significant bruising on her face. She told them she was worried that the other woman would be able to get into her car. The officers sent Spring Fling workers to watch her car until her parents brought her a spare set of keys. The first man refused to give the officers his friend’s full name, though he did give them her first name and told them she was his new stepsister. Officers escorted the first man off the premises.

said that his friend had just been hit by the woman. The friend told the officer that the woman had asked them to stop cursing, but they had ignored her. That’s when she began to hit them. The friend said he had not been the one cursing when the woman threatened to hit him. He also said she struck him twice in the head. The student said she struck his friend in the left side of his face, knocking the hat off his head. She then proceeded to punch the back of his friend’s head. The student wanted to press charges on the woman for assault. The officer went to talk to the woman, who had been standing nearby. She told the officer the young men had been using profane language. She said that while standing in a line, the group of people behind her kept loudly using the f-word. When she asked them to stop, they cursed at her and said, “You’re not the boss.” This made her angry, she said, so she began to hit them. She admitted to knowing her behavior was wrong and that she had anger issues. The officer cited and released the woman for assault.

flinging profanity and swinging fists Watch your profanity, or watch out for these hands. That was the case at the 2007 Spring Fling at Rillito Park, when a woman took a swing at a man after hearing him curse. A UAPD bicycle patrol officer was alerted to the assault by a UA student, who

WNIT champions ‘hungry’ for more BY AMIT SYAL @asyal21

If we have learned anything in the past few days, it’s if Adia Barnes asks for something, she shall receive. Barnes spent the last few weeks urging fans to come out to watch Arizona women’s basketball’s postseason run, and the championship game of the Women’s National Invitation Tournament was a culmination of her and her team’s efforts. On Saturday, April 6, history was made in McKale Center. The women’s basketball team won the WNIT championship and the final attendance count was 14,644, the largest crowd in program and Pac-12 women’s basketball history. But that count is so much more than just a number. According to Barnes, the record-breaking fan base is one of the reasons her team was “able to pull this out and win.” Barnes has gotten the point across numerous times that these immense crowds in McKale prove her program is only going one direction from here on out: the right direction. Whether history repeats itself is a question for another time, but for now, history did repeat

itself for Barnes. In 1996, Barnes — a sophomore undergraduate at the time — led UA all the way to the WNIT Championship against what team? You guessed it: the Northwestern Wildcats. “I think everything happens for a reason. I think you’re put in situations for a reason, and there’s always a bigger plan, and so it is probably meant to be,” Barnes said on the déjà vu she witnessed Saturday afternoon. “This is a pretty good story … it’s pretty magical.” Not making the NCAA Tournament is a tough pill for any collegiate basketball team to swallow at first, but Barnes took a step back and realized it might be for the better. The thirdyear head coach knew her team would benefit from the “high pressure, one-and-done” games her crew would have to face in the WNIT. “I thought we got better and better as time went on … We played different teams. To come into the WNIT and get six different teams, it’s better for us, because we got a lot more games, a lot more practices. And it was just a magical run,” Barnes said. Freshman Cate Reese chimed in, saying, “I think if you just look at how we’ve transitioned throughout the season, we’ve only been getting

better since day one.” The head coach for the Northwestern women’s basketball team, Joseph McKeown, recognized the experience was good for both teams, even though Arizona was the only team to come out victorious. “The sell-out crowd was tremendous; I think it was great for our players. Even though it was probably an advantage for Arizona, it was great for our players to play in that atmosphere. To have that many people care about our sport, I thought it was a great experience for us,” McKeown said. “I wish the outcome were a little better, but our players did an incredible job.” After the celebration had ended on the McKale Center court, Barnes said she has loved the rebuilding process she has emphasized in her three years as head coach. The best part for her is all five of her starters will be returning next year. She said she recognizes her players will be “hungry” for more in the coming season. “I expect these young women [her starters] to lead the next class that comes in and to teach them what it takes to get where we’re at now. It’s hard,” said Barnes. The expectations for the team next season

will be very different than the expectations for this season, which came after a six-game victory season in 2017-2018. “It feels good, but we’ll get our rest for a couple weeks. But we still have unfinished business: We want to advance and get into NCAAs, so we definitely have a lot of work to do,” Aari McDonald, the WNIT MVP, said. “We’re going to be scary. With the incoming talent, we can build something special.” The strong relationships Barnes has built with her players has contributed to the team’s success, according to her players. “To be able to have with [Barnes] is great. I think it really helps with the basketball standpoint, and when life throws things at you, having somebody that you can talk to,” forward Tee Tee Starks said. McDonald also spoke highly of her relationship with Barnes. “She [Barnes] values everyone’s input … and she really does have trust and faith in us, and I appreciate that,” McDonald said. Saturday looked like only the beginning for UA women’s basketball and with Barnes at the helm for the foreseeable future, there’s no telling what accomplishment might be next.

First UA Wind Ensemble Solo Artist winner Last week, the University of Arizona Fred Fox School of Music announced the winner of the First UA Wind Ensemble Solo Artist Competition, Conner Bagheri BY MAYA NOTO @mayanoto58

Undergraduate and graduate students in the woodwind, brass and percussion studios competed against one another for the opportunity to play alongside professional musicians. Conner Bagheri is a second-year undergraduate of Jason Carder at the UA and, because of this win, will perform Kevin McKee’s “Centennial Horizon” for trumpet and wind ensemble on Friday, April 26, in Crowder Hall. Bagheri said he first began playing the trumpet in his sixth-grade band class. Four years later, he began studying with Frank Glasson of the San Diego Symphony. During his high school years, Bagheri said he was instructed by John Wilds, Rob Frear, Jim Wilt and Thomas Hooten. He was a member of the California All-State Wind Symphony in 2017 and has participated in the chamber music portion of the Music for All National Festival in Indianapolis. The Daily Wildcat talked with Bagheri about his accomplishment and his enthusiasm for his instrument. The interview has been edited for length and clarity. Daily Wildcat: What was the audition process like? Conner Bagheri: There’s a preliminary process where basically it’s all your people who are music majors that major on your instrument. For instance, the trumpet studio is all the people at the university that major in the instrument trumpet. There was a preliminary round, where only one person from each studio was able to win that round, and then they would go on to represent their studio in the next round. You just play in front of the class, and then the studio basically votes on who they want to represent them.

DW: How was your experience playing alongside professionals at the opera? CB: It’s a lot of sitting, a lot of rests. The only reason the instrument exists for opera is for louder sections. You’re mostly listening the whole night. It’s like a free concert, that’s really what it is for trumpet. You’ll have the opening fanfare in the beginning, and you’ll play a lot of that, and then — boom — you’re resting for 200 measures, and then you’ll play like 5 minutes with no rest for another 300, and then you might have a longer section where you actually play for like 1,020 bars. DW: What do you do during all those rests? CB: It all depends on what is in the music. There’s so many rests where they don’t even tell you the number of rests you have it just says “tacit,” you know, Italian for “don’t play.” If you follow the music, that’s a two-hour opera, you’re going to lose focus unless you’re playing most of the time like the string players, so I just listen. Maybe I joke around with a trombone player sitting right next to me at the end of the row. We just talk about random stuff like that, but then I have cues that I’ve written in the music, or there’s cues that are written in the music if the composer was kind enough to do that for us. Once that happens, I’m ready. During intermission, some people just go backstage and watch a basketball game or football game or something. DW: Could you see yourself playing in a professional ensemble one day? CB: I want to be a freelancer when I’m older. The way it works in the professional world is if somebody calls in sick on a performance day or whatever, you can’t just play without that trumpet player. You have to call in somebody else’s sub. That’s kind of what, that’s basically what I want to do.


CONNER BAGHERI HOLDS HIS trumpet up and starts to tune his instrument. Bagheri is the winner the Fred Fox School of Music First UA Wind Ensemble Solo Artist Competition.

DW: Is the trumpet the only instrument you play, or do you play other ones as well? CB: It’s the only one that I play and that I have an intent with to play professionally. For fun, I like to play piano. I’m not very good at it, but, you know, it’s a nice stress-reliever. DW: What’s special about the trumpet to you that makes it different than the others?

CB: Surprisingly, the trumpet is used a lot in many different types of ensembles. I don’t think another instrument can really compare. It can be used in some rock bands and punk bands. It’s used in mariachi music and, of course, some types of Middle Eastern music. It’s used a surprising amount. I mean, it’s used in rap tracks. Recording artists literally have trumpet players improvise over a track. That’s one of the things that I find really cool about it.

Gender pay discrepancies in higher education BY ALANA MINKLER AND PRIYA JANDU @alana_minkler @Priya_J11

Currently, the University of Arizona is putting into place a new compensation infrastructure called the University Career Architecture Project. Compensation regarding fair pay has been under scrutiny at the UA, and there are currently multiple lawsuits against the university for violating the Equal Pay Act in the past two years. The numbers According to the 2019 salary report, there are 17 male deans and three female deans, excluding interim deans. There are two female academic deans, Nancy PollockEllwand, Dean of the College of Architecture, Planning & Landscape Architecture and Iman A. Hakim, Dean of the Mel and Enid Zuckerman College of Public Health. According to the 2019 salary database, excluding interim deans, in 2019 the average female dean salary was $261,570.58. The average male dean salary was $312,554.33 per fiscal year. On average, male deans made $50,983.75 more a year than female deans, excluding interim deans. Not all colleges or positions are equal, making it difficult to examine if there is a gender pay gap. Arizona State University has 10 female deans with an average salary of $290,462.68 a year; there are 15 male deans with an average salary of $291,200.19. The difference between ASU’s average male and female dean’s salary is $737.51 a year. The highest paid female dean in the UA 2019 database is Hakim. She made $333,030 and is the eighth highest paid dean. The highest paid dean was Guy Reed, the Dean of the College of Medicine-Phoenix Campus, whose yearly salary was $700,000. The positions are not equal; however, the lack of female deans has raised eyebrows. “It’s kind of hard to say at this university whether there’s pay inequity,” said Jessica Summers, member of President Robert C. Robbins’ cabinet and chair of faculty. “But that’s a problem in and of itself, right? We should have more women in leadership.” The university created the Department of Equity, Inclusion & Title IX earlier this semester in an effort to promote equality in school. Ron Wilson, current Title IX Director, is leading the department which deals with incidents of discrimination and harassment; however, they were just established and mostly deal with sexual harassment within athletics, Wilson said. “Everything about employment, from benefits to salaries to job descriptions to titles is up to H.R.,” Wilson said. Human Resources is in charge of approving pay raises and assigning job titles, positions and salaries.


THIS DATA EXCLUDES ALL interim deans, associate deans, assistant deans and vice deans and only includes deans from beginning of the 2019 spring semester.

“I think we could expand our candidate pools quite a bit so that we make sure that we have the best people, including women and people of color,” Summers said. Summers also said the university has to try hard to change the disparity. “It’s also hard to attract people to come to campus where everyone is a male dean,” Summers said. “Almost all deans are white, and now we have this lawsuit.” Recent class-action lawsuits Fair compensation has been on the radar at the University of Arizona after former Honors College Dean Patricia MacCorquodale filed a $2 million classaction lawsuit against the Arizona Board of Regents in January 2018 for violating the Equal Pay Act. Former dean of the College of Architecture, Planning, and Landscape Architecture Janice

Cervelli joined MacCorquodale’s class-action lawsuit in March 2018, alleging that the university refused to give her any pay raise during her eight years serving as a dean from 2008 to 2016. After MacCorquodale left her position as dean of the honors college, Elliott Cheu was appointed as interim Honors College Dean. His salary was over $100,000 higher than MacCorquodale’s salary in her final year. Terry Hunt, current Honors College Dean, was being paid $70,000 more annually after she left and was paid $230,000 last year. Katrina Miranda, a tenured associate professor in chemistry and biochemistry, filed a federal class-action lawsuit against the University of Arizona in November 2018, which claims that the department discriminates against female employees when it comes to pay and promotions. “Unfortunately, no one at the University

of Arizona [can] comment as long as we are engaged in active litigation,” said vice president of UA communications Chris Sigurdson, on behalf of Provost Jeffrey Goldberg. The initial suit filing from November 29, 2018 stated that female professors are routinely paid less than their male counterparts, and they are denied promotions to professors from assistant and associate professor levels. According to the UA’s 2018-2019 salary database, there are 38 people in the Chemistry and Biochemistry department that are officially listed as a professor, associate professor or assistant professor. Of those 38, eight are female, and only four of those women hold the title of professor. “Dr. Miranda has suffered substantial pay disparities as compared to her male counterparts, and the university has failed to promote her in an equivalent manner to these male peers,” the filing said. The suit filing mentioned three climate surveys distributed to the university at the time: a climate survey in Fall 2016, an Academic Program Review and a Collaborative on Academic Careers in Higher Education survey. All three indicated concerns about gender discrimination and dissatisfaction among female faculty. The law firm Sanford Heisler Sharp, LLP represents MacCorquodale and Miranda in their class action lawsuits against the university. Andrew Melzer, the New York partner for the law firm, said there is a pattern or trend of unfavorable pay outcomes for women. “We think there’s a pattern in pay disparities and of holding women back particularly to full professor,” Melzer said. Miranda’s claim against ABOR said she was refused a raise from an associate professor to full professorship despite her clear qualifications. Sanford Heisler Sharp, LLP often litigates in social justice cases for employees across the nation. The cases are being investigated thoroughly, paying special attention to the comparison of salaries of female and male deans and professors with similar qualifications. “We are seeing that in the numbers that have been publicly available, although we will need to obtain more information as the case goes on, and we are also seeing it in the observations and experiences of Dr. Miranda and other women like her,” Melzer said. The current state of pay at the university Jan Myers is the director of compensation and the project director of the University Career Architecture Project, UA’s initiative to

redesign compensation infrastructure and career architecture. “We look at where would we collect market data from to help us inform our salary structure, our pay ranges,” Myers said. “We start that by really looking at salary surveys that we either participate in or purchase or a combination of both, and we look at those higher education specific salary surveys.” UCAP uses the surveys to see how work is organized into job functions or families. “You might see that we compete nationally for people who run clinical research labs, but we compete locally for marketing and communication, so that changes the salary compensation or competition,” Sigurdson said. UCAP is currently in the process of calibration, mapping if managers and employee positions match their given titles. Results are currently expected to be shared

Once UCAP is complete, Myers said it enables the university to be able to conduct a Pay Equity Study. “Likely, if anything is a flag through a Pay Equity Study, you’re going to be doing that unique analysis,” Myers said, “but it positions us to have factors that are legitimate factors for variances of pay, to build into a regression model to say, ‘Based on these factors, where would an employee’s expected compensation fall?’” All entries must be submitted by 4/17/19 at midnight.

OPINIONS | TOPIC OF THE WEEK Anika Pasilis The First Amendment is heavily debated. You can’t change it based on what you like or don’t like about a movement or protest. Whether or not you agree with the Border Patrol protestors, they have a right to protest, and that should be respected. Obviously, the way they started it, by going inside the building, is probably how the university determined it could file charges against the students in question. The UA has a tradition of protecting free speech, and I don’t see why that should end now. The political climate is incredibly volatile, but free speech is something we now come to expect both at the university and in life.

Alec Scott

The primary goal of a college campus is to create a self-confident atmosphere of expression, be it political or otherwise. The protection of free speech and a recognition of the right of protest are both key elements of this aspiration. First Amendment rights are integral to foster a university that is open to new ideas, welcoming towards controversy and eager to confront the difficult questions facing the student body and the nation at large. Charging students for exercising these rights does nothing but put our students on edge, demonstrate their rights are far weaker than they thought possible and throw our dedication to discussion right out the window. We must protect our First Amendment rights, not only for the students’ right to protest but for counter protests, open discussions and the right of the politically unpopular to speak. Without these rights, our campus will become a sterile zone of the politically safe. By doubling down in our protection of the rights of our students, our university will not only re-affirm its dedication to the free expression of opinions but send a message out to other campuses that punishing protest is not the way to encourage understanding between the armed political camps.

Maya Noto

It seems that as the weeks pass, the issue of speech and expression in the United States snowballs. Now, the issue is threefold. We have ourselves a snowman of speech. The head of the issue, with a corncob pipe and a button nose, is asking what kind of expression is allowed in public spaces. The middle, maybe outfitted with a cozy scarf and two twig arms, is the issue of what kind of expression is allowed in schools, both secondary and universities alike. And the bottom of it all: Who is even right in the first place? The issue of free speech will continue to snowball until, as a community, we accept there is only one answer. The free exchange of ideas is the cornerstone of democracy and progress, and to censor certain groups over others takes them out of the conversation altogether.

Selena Kuikahi


It is important to keep in mind the multidimensional facets of universities. The University of Arizona serves as not only a public space, but a home for many of its students. What a college, in general, serves to do is create an atmosphere of free interactions and discussion among its population. Within this interactivity comes room for hateful speech. There is a historical importance for the establishment of safe spaces on college campuses, and although it is crucial to allow students safe spaces, I believe it is also crucial to allow for situations and discussions that would challenge students’ understanding of various topics. With that, contributions should be respected, but dignity cannot be undermined. There is a fine line between spewing an unwarranted opinion and hate speech. As far as further regulating speech on campus, I don’t think that the students would benefit from that, because it would compromise how they are able to express themselves. You cannot exclude people from contributing because you think their ideas are invaluable — there is always an educational opportunity present, no matter which party benefits. As long as there is an underlying understanding of the difference between hate speech and free speech, then our current regulations should be sufficient.

Board of Regents discuss UA’s proposed tuition increase BY PRIYA JANDU @Priya_J11

The Arizona Board of Regents proposed a slight tuition increase for incoming resident and nonresident students at a discussion at the University of Arizona Tuesday, April 2. UA President Dr. Robert C. Robbins proposed a two-percent increase in tuition for incoming resident undergraduate students and a one-percent increase for incoming nonresident undergraduate students as outlined in his previously released tuition proposal. Current undergraduate students won’t see an increase in tuition, due to the UA’s guaranteed tuition program. “Tuition and fee increases comprise one small piece of institutional funding for the investments that will allow us to implement this vision,” Robbins wrote. Robbins also proposed a 1.89 percent

tuition increase for resident graduate students at UA’s Main Campus and a 1.59 percent tuition increase for resident graduate students at UA South Campus. Graduate nonresident students will not see a tuition increase for the 2019-2020 school year. Dylan Barton, a UA psychology Ph.D. student and Graduate and Professional Student Council member, said he appreciates the proposed graduate tuition increase equates to the same dollar increase as undergraduate resident tuition but wants students to have more input regarding fees. “We graduate students are asking for a seat at the table when decisions are being made about how much money universities will acquire from our pockets, and we’re asking for fees to have a demonstrable impact on students that pay them and last only as long as needed,” Barton said. “Without these two actions, as

graduate students and graduate student representatives, how could we possibly support any initiatives to support increased tuition and fees?” With the exception of the Recreation Center Program fee, there are no proposed increases in mandatory fees. Natalynn Masters, student body president of Associated Students of the University of Arizona, said on behalf of student government and student body that she is in support of the proposed tuition increase. “One of the things that I want to highlight that came out of this discussion is really changing the process of tuition fee discussion so that it is a yearlong discussion and that students can truly be involved with voicing their opinions and understanding where their fee dollars go and understanding how tuition works at this institution,” Masters said. Northern Arizona University’s President

Rita Cheng said the university is committed to its guaranteed tuition program and its proposed tuition increase of 2.5 percent would be $260 higher than the current pledge rate for students. “This proposal incorporates students’ valuable insights, and it provides a strong foundation for the future,” Cheng said. Arizona State University President Michael Crow proposed to collapse individual fees into four categories, as well as a 2.8 percent tuition increase for resident students. “I can say upfront that ASU’s tuition is the lowest tuition offered in the United States for a person from Arizona to achieve a bachelor’s degree,” Crow said. Ron Shoopman, ABOR’s chair of the board, said tuition will be decided April 11. Any further questions or remarks regarding the proposed tuition increase can be emailed to

PSU to become UA Global Center


The University of Arizona’s Strategic Plan outlines many changes, some of which have already been set in motion. One such project is the development of a UA Global Center in the current Park Student Union building, which will house many of the services UA Global provides. UA Global is a department on campus that coordinates various services related to international study, whether for students and faculty coming into the U.S. or leaving. Under the Strategic Plan, UA Global is a central focus, as pillar four of the plan is devoted to its presence. The new UA Global Center will increase UA’s “global draw” by creating a centralized, easy-to-navigate and welcoming space, according to Brent White, vice provost for Global Affairs. “The UA Global Center will be designed to act as a hub for international activities and global engagement at the UA,” White said. “So part of that is serving as a onestop shop for services and activities for our international students and our international faculty and scholars and our study abroad students.” Currently, White said international and global services are located all around campus, making them harder to access. “Right now, international is so spread out. There’s no one place you can go if you’re interested in talking to global,” White said. “So that’s the kind of services that will be provided in the Global Center.” The new center will house International Student Services, International Faculty and Scholars, UA Study Abroad, UA Passports and International Recruitment, Admissions, and Marketing. According to White, moving UA Study Abroad to a more visible location is an important focus of the new project, as its current position in the University Services Building makes it hard to access. “It’s out of the way, so students don’t see it. We want to have the study abroad office more accessible to all students and have the storefront so that students can see the great opportunities we have for study abroad,” White said. The UA Global Center will also have

international food options in the form of restaurants serving authentic food from five countries and a grocery store, White said, and the lounge spaces will be upgraded and expanded. The current Office of Student Computing Resources lab will be upgraded, as will the Think Tank. Multipurpose study and meetings rooms will also be created. While ThinkTank and the OCSR Lab will stay, several other services will be moved elsewhere on campus, including Arizona Student Media and the Tucson Festival of Books office. White said he and his team are currently in the process of finding equitable space on campus for those services to move into. “Our number one goal right now is to find the space that’s suitable, space that’s equitable and fair, and then once we find that then we can move on with the project, but that’s, for us, step one: making sure that there’s a good place for everyone,” White said. White said the consultations with each

service are ongoing. “I do believe that in some cases, and I hope in all cases, it will be better for those that move,” White said. “I believe that there’s usually a win-win when people sit down with an open mind.” Olivia Jackson, general manager of UATV and a senior studying journalism, said on the student end, they have not yet been asked to sit down and talk. “When it comes to how the school sees you, you hope that they see you as a respectable establishment, that you do good work and that you deserve to be shown the respect that you’ve earned over the last years you’ve been working. And they didn’t do that with us,” Jackson said. “I would have loved it, when the talks were first happening … if the three leaders of student media had been brought into the conversation, brought to the table, so that way we could sit down and talk. But they haven’t even reached out to us.” While Jackson said the director of Arizona Student Media, Brett Fera, had

been involved in talks with UA Global and other university stakeholders, but there has not yet been a resolution. “Honestly, it feels a little bit like we’re in the dark,” Jackson said. “Not much has been told to us … We’re in a limbo right now. I don’t know where we’re moving. I don’t know when.” Jackson said she was concerned about losing easy access to the recording studio UATV uses, as well as being further from the School of Journalism, which is located in the Marshall Building on 845 N. Park Ave. “A huge negative is how abrupt it was, how they just didn’t really take into consideration that we’ve all formed a family here,” Jackson said. “I’ve been in this office since I came here.” However, Jackson said it’s not really the move that’s the core problem. “If they want to move us, okay, that’s fine. It’s a business, people have to move,” Jackson said. “It’s more the family, not the location. But at least give us the common decency to let us talk with you.” As far as the timeline of the project, White said he hopes to have phase one of the project done by the end of Fall 2019 which would include moving services in like International Student Services, International Faculty and Scholars, International Admissions, Study Abroad, UA Passports and global travel services,

as well as upgrading the study and lounge spaces. To avoid disrupting the academic year, White said phase two, which includes the food court and outdoor courtyard of Park Student Union, would not be started until the summer of 2020. “The Park Student Union has been in need of an upgrade for a very long time, so this is an opportunity to make that space more attractive and useful for the whole university,” White said. Right now, as the project is still in the design phase, White said he didn’t have a final dollar amount for the renovations, but estimated the initial cost to be about one million dollars. “There are additional funds beyond that, depending on what we discover and what the needs are,” White said. “It’s an old building.” According to White, the funds for the upgrades comes from the Strategic Plan budget. A news release emailed on March 22 shared UA’s proposed tuition increases for the 2019-2020 academic year, which are intended to provide financial support for the Strategic Plan. “The increase is needed to fund priority initiatives under the university’s new

strategic plan and increases in external costs,” the news release said. The proposed increases in tuition are 2 percent for all incoming resident undergraduate students and 1 percent for incoming nonresident undergraduate students. For graduate resident students, the proposed increase is 1.89 percent at the Tucson campus and 1.59 percent at the UA South campus, while there is no proposed change for nonresident graduate students. In the news release, the total tuition and fee costs were listed as $12,671 per year for incoming resident undergraduates, $36,698 per year for incoming nonresident undergraduates, $13,207 per year for incoming resident graduate students on the main campus and $33,334 per year for incoming nonresident graduate students on the main campus. Jane Hunter, who is leading the implementation of the Strategic Plan, said overall, the focus of the Strategic Plan is to help students and making study abroad available to more students was one of the most important initiatives. “We have identified a number of initiatives that will receive some special funding in order for those initiatives to move forward, and very many of those are really focused on students and student success,” Hunter said. “That really rose to the top of the priorities.”

UA theater ends season with ‘Spring Awakening’ BY JESSE TELLEZ @jtell27

The Arizona Repertory Theatre is wrapping up the school year at the University of Arizona with the production of “Spring Awakening.” The Tony Award-winning musical will be performed by acting students at the Tornabene Theatre on campus from April 7-28. “Spring Awakening” will be the last of six productions the ART has put on this season, including the musical “Sister Act” and William Shakespeare’s “Richard III.” UA theater professor Hank Stratton is directing “Spring Awakening” and said he is excited for the actors to take on a show that deals with serious subject matter. “It’s going to be an opportunity for our students to step outside their comfort zones and do something that feels very immediate to them,” Stratton said. “Spring Awakening” revolves around a group of teenagers in 19thcentury Germany as they deal with the pressures of growing up, experiencing romances with classmates and exploring their sexualities. The musical deals with themes of oppression, sexual awakening, making reckless choices while young, physical abuse, suicide and abortion, Stratton explained. “I just want to present these images and these ideas as cleanly and straightforwardly as possible,” he said. Stratton said each year the ART tries to include “emotionally rich” shows such as “Spring Awakening” in its seasons, in addition to more lighthearted productions, so student actors can strengthen their skills in different genres of theater. “That’s why we did ‘A Streetcar Named Desire’ last year,” Stratton said. He said he wanted to give actors different material so they can improve their versatility when it comes to stage acting. “In ‘Streetcar,’ the themes of alcoholism, women’s rights, domestic violence and sexual assault were written in the 1947 and they’re still important to talk about today,” he said. “We can’t do that unless we present them.” Stratton said actors aren’t the only ones he hopes are affected by dramatic theater pieces. “We make audiences uncomfortable,” Stratton said. “We make them think and we make them

talk. It’s always great when people walk out of a show talking about what they just saw rather than about where they parked their car.” Michael Schulz, a junior majoring in musical theater, said he hopes viewers will leave the show having learned something. “I hope audience members come in with an open mind,” Schulz said. “The lessons in the show are applicable to society today, since we still view certain things as taboo that should be embraced instead of avoided, in my opinion.” Schulz will play the character Melchior, who is the love interest of the character Wendla. “Melchior is a rebellious young man whose contempt for society and curiosity about sexuality is what sets many of the play’s events into motion,” Schulz said. “He thinks he

knows best, but that doesn’t always prove to be true.” The music in “Spring Awakening” is heavily rock-based, which Schulz said is interesting to perform since the plot is set over 100 years in the past. “I’ve loved working on such a complex show, where the time period and the musical styles are two very different things,” Schulz said. “There is a lot of room for creative choices with this show, so it’s been really fun exploring that.” Senior musical theater major Rachel Franke will play Wendla, who she describes as an innocent “teenager entering a coming-of-age point in her life.” Franke said the supportive environment of the production has made it easier for the cast to work with the show’s darker content. “Everyone is supportive, mature and

respectful. As actors, we all know it is not easy to be vulnerable in front of a roomful of strangers,” Franke said. “We are all there for each other and most of all make sure we know the importance of not taking the weight of this show into our daily lives outside of the show.” She said she hopes the dark subject matter will intrigue audiences rather than fluster them. “It is a show that makes you question the validity of societal structure, which I hope will also feel poignant to our audiences,” Franke said. Tickets for “Spring Awakening” can be found online on Arizona Repertory Theatre’s website. Audiences should be advised that the show will contain strong language, partial nudity and mature themes.

Men’s wheelchair basketball team takes third The team made Ohio ‘Wildcat Country’ in the Toyota National Adult Division I Wheelchair Basketball Tournament BY AIYA CANCIO @cancioaiya

The University of Arizona men’s wheelchair basketball team won third place at the Toyota National Adult Division I Wheelchair Basketball Tournament in Tallmadge, Ohio, on March 24. The Wildcats won 76-75 on a last-second shot over the MedStar NRH Punishers of Washington, D.C. The team is part of the University of Arizona Adaptive Athletics. Tyrone “Stretch” Griner, Arizona’s team captain, averaged 25.4 PPG, 10.2 RPG and 6.7 APG on the entire season and earned first-team All-Tournament D-I honors. Josh Brewer earned second-team All-Tournament D-I honors. Brewer was responsible for the hockey assist to Griner, who then passed the ball to Takenori Ishikawa for the game-winning layup with 0.4 seconds left. Ishikawa scored his final basket as an Arizona Wildcat on the play of the game. The ‘Cats entered the tournament ranked sixth overall, and with their 3-1 record, they were able to move into the top three. This year’s thirdplace performance was an improvement from

last season, when the ‘Cats finished sixth in the nation. “We always finish top eight,” said head coach Mike Beardsley, who is also the program coordinator and has been with the team for nine years. Earlier in the season, the ‘Cats took on the Punishers in Phoenix and lost by a final score of 61-58, so the win over them in the tournament served as a redemption match. “We definitely had an axe to grind. We really wanted a rematch,” Arizona’s starting center Karl Odegaard Yares said. That game, played on Jan. 27, was also for a third-place title. “It was sweet. It was revenge; that makes it even sweeter,” Brewer said. The 2018-2019 men’s wheelchair basketball team was made up of 12 athletes, seven of which were students at UA. Next year, the team projects 10 players on their team, and all 10 are expected to be enrolled at the UA. Griner, a former football player at Hofstra University, will be a freshman along with Brewer, who was previously with Team USA Rugby. Yares is also

looking forward to going back to school. The 2019-2020 season marks a larger shift for men’s basketball, however, as the team will be moving from Division I to the Intercollegiate division. “We have high expectations as a program next year. We’ll be competitive for a championship,” Beardsley said. Along with the thriving men’s wheelchair basketball team, the Arizona Adaptive Athletics program is making strides in nearly every other sport. Arizona adaptive rugby just won the 2019 United States Quad Rugby Association Championship on March 31 in Rockford, Ill., to make them back-to-back champions. The Wildcats won 50-45 against the Denver Harlequins. Starting in May, UA will also begin hosting an annual adaptive golf event held at Sewailo Golf Club. This will make Tucson home to the first-ever collegiate adaptive golf club in the country. Seeing these strides in other sports has not gone unnoticed by the basketball team. “It’s a really good time for the program,” Beardsley said.

Derby Cats race toward recognition BY AMBER SOLAND @its_amber_rs

Clad in numbered jerseys and war paint, the Derby Cats have been skating around the University of Arizona Mall to promote their upcoming derby bout — UA Derby Cats vs. 5C Roller Derby — Saturday, April 13, at 8 p.m. in Tucson Indoor Sports Center. “Not a lot of people know that roller derby still exists,” said Jessica Brewster, aka Glenn CoCo, senior and a captain of the Derby Cats. “Most people don’t know that the UA even has a roller derby team.” Founded in 2012, the Derby Cats were the first college-level roller derby team. There are 18 members, with 12 who are eligible to play in a bout. “5C Roller Derby has 22 eligible players, which is two more than WFTDA regulations even allow,” Brewster said. “It’s sure to be an exciting game, though exhausting.” Roller derby has only very recently begun to introduce men and co-ed derby teams — the Derby Cats are proud to be one of those co-ed teams — according to the Women’s Flat Track Derby Association. Combined with the theatrical stage names, fishnet stockings and war paint, roller derby has faced many challenges with recognition. “Roller derby has kind of had to fight an uphill battle to become recognized as a serious sport, because many leagues are womenonly and have sort of been relegated to a ‘hobby sport’,” said Hallye Becker, senior and co-captain with Brewster of the Derby Cats. Roller derby continues to face invalidation as a sport compared to more popularized high-contact sports like football, according to Becker. “A lot people think its a mild sport because we wear pads, but we wear less safety gear than football players and take just as many hits,” Brewster said. “It was publicized as fake and theatricized. It’s definitely a stereotyped sport.” Recently, though, the Olympics officially recognized roller derby as a roller sport for the summer of 2020. “That recognition meant everything to derby players,” Brewster said. “Nonetheless, derby

is still a relatively niche sport, primarily because people either don’t understand the rules, can’t find a reason to attend a bout or don’t recognize it as a sport.” The platform for adult city and state teams like the Rose City Rollers or the Gotham Girls of New York City has grown since the founding of WFTDA in 2004, which has 469 professional member leagues across six continents. Most professional teams are either not for profit or make very little. The recent introduction of junior roller derby teams like Tucson’s own Tucson Derby Brats has helped aid this growth, but collegiate-level teams remain few and far between. Even the Derby Cats are not an officially certified UA sport, but rather a club sport through the Associate Students of the University of Arizona that pays club dues and competitions and practices offcampus at Catalina High School. According to the Derby Cats’ coach Josephine Sebring, aka Jo Mama, college teams seem to have difficulty maintaining membership long enough to gain a sufficient reputation. Brewster agreed. “College teams are really sporadic,” Brewster said. “It makes planning meets pretty difficult.” Due to the lack of college teams, the Derby Cats only organize four to six bouts per year. Becker said the whole derby community would benefit from college teams becoming more popular. “College roller derby brings some potential for additional legitimacy as a sport,” Becker said. “The emergence of college leagues allows more people to experience and learn about roller derby and take it more seriously.” Getting officially certified as a UA sport could help roller derby as whole gain national recognition, but Sebring doesn’t believe it is the right move for the Derby Cats at this time. “In order for that to happen, I think derby has to become more prevalent nationally,” Sebring said. “I think the certification can wait until we have a solid team maintained.” Eventually, the Derby Cats would like to see themselves as a certified UA sport when more college teams will be around to follow suit, but Becker echoed Sebring’s sentiments.

“I want the team to keep the same spirit of inclusivity and flexibility that we have now, which might be something lost with the rigidity of certification,” Becker said. “I want derby to keep growing as a globally recognized sport so that we keep contributing to the community and help people find themselves.” Many of the Derby Cats’ veteran members graduate this May, including both co-captains Brewster and Becker, who have led the team since their freshman year and built the team into what it is today. “It really is a place where you can freely express yourself in the craziest ways,” Brewster said. “It’s really fun that you can beat people up while you’re at it and still be friends with them afterwards.” Brewster encouraged students to come skate with the team, just to try it out, no experience necessary, so the Derby Cats can continue to build their legacy at the UA. “I would love to see the team become a sort of local source of pride,” Sebring said. “We have the UA basketball team and softball team that everyone is so proud of, why not be proud of the UA Derby Cats?”

Where does free speech fit at UA? The issue of free speech on college campuses has come to the forefront at the University of Arizona after a confrontation between students and Border Patrol officers on March 19 COLUMN

BY MAYA NOTO @mayanoto58


ollege Republicans invited Art Del Cueto, the Vice President of the National Border Patrol Council, to speak in the aftermath of a confrontation between students and Border Patrol agents that garnered international news coverage. University free-speech monitors were present both outside and inside the meeting. The recent series of events, starting with the original confrontation on March 19 and subsequent discussions on campus, has drawn international coverage to the University of Arizona. The debate on how students can express themselves on campus is foreshadowed by a national discussion that began in the White House some weeks earlier. President Trump recently announced he would release an executive order that would help guarantee free speech at colleges and universities. Trump planned to protect all views by revoking government funding from institutions that do not promote free speech on their campuses. Trump announced his plans to a crowd at the Conservative Political Action Conference outside Washington. Conversation of an executive order began in response to young conservatives expressing that their voices are stifled by left-leaning students and administrations. In an interview unrelated to the Border Patrol incident on campus, UA’s Vice President of Communications, Chris Sigurdson, said he interprets the university’s position on issues of speech and expression using a set of guidelines shared by many other institutions. “Almost every change that we made for social justice as a country, from the cessation of slavery, women’s suffrage and the right to vote, came because somebody said something that stuck,” Sigurdson said. “The give and take, the free discussion of ideas, is critical to learning, to critical scholarship”. Expression and speech on college campuses has been a hotbutton issue since their founding. College protests are both the result and continuation of the national discussion of landmark issues that define generations. Three UA students became the center of the speech debate at UA last month after a viral video showed students protesting the presence of U.S. Customs and Border Protection agents on campus. Last week, all three students were charged with “interference with the peaceful conduct of an educational institution,” for which they face up to six months in jail. The students cited by the University of Arizona Police Department following the original confrontation were cited due to time, place and manner restrictions, which are the set of laws in place to regulate speech in public places. No demonstrations can occur inside classrooms or the administration building where learning or university business occurs. Sigurdson stated the UA relies on time, place and manner restrictions to regulate most actions on campus. “We can stop something like if somebody was standing


SILENT PROTESTERS SPORTING SHIRTS reading “U.S. Murder Patrol” greeted Art Del Cueto, VP of the largest U.S. Customs and Border Protection union ahead of his engagement with conservative groups on campus Thursday, April 4. While the National Anthem played, the protesters took a knee.

outside a residence hall at 10 o’clock at night with a megaphone,” Sigurdson cited as an example. According to the Daily Beast, one of the protesters said she felt her treatment was unequal compared to other frequent speakers on campus. She noted the case of “Brother Dean Saxton,” a preacher who migrates across college campuses in the U.S. “We all remember Brother Dean Saxton,” said Denisse in an interview with Daily Beast. “He’d yell at people walking by, at women, saying ‘you deserve to get raped,’ saying people who wear leggings deserve to get raped. He’d sit out there for hours, yelling and yelling. They let him get to the point where he kicked someone in the chest.” The theory behind the speech and expression clauses of the First Amendment is to maintain the free flow of ideas, where people with all viewpoints are welcomed to express themselves freely. Unpopular viewpoints find themselves grandfathered into the system, meaning most institutions tolerate hate speech to allow for speech that benefits society. “What we have right now, I think, is a tension between people who want to live and work in a civil environment with other people’s free-speech rights,” said Sigurdson. Universities are a national symbol for growth and exploration. College-aged citizens are developing their view of the world as they see it, and there is an invaluable worth to the exchange of those ideas and experiences.

The theory is that if we allow for all viewpoints to be out in the open, we can evaluate those perspectives and improve our own. It’s an evolution that can only continue with open communication, even if that communication can be hurtful. As we all know, theories are made to be tested. “How do you make anything better if you can’t talk about it?” Sigurdson said. In the age of ‘political correctness’ the conversation, specifically how we have the conversation, is shifting beneath our feet. There is a clash between what each generation defines as acceptable speech. “If you give any room to not have free speech, then you get censorship, and you can’t speak about the problems that really matter,” said Paula Mercado, a junior majoring in international human rights. Cassandra Baserman, president of College Republicans at the UA, also described her view on First Amendment rights on campus. “Being a constitutionalist and a Republican, the constitution is very important. The First Amendment was written by the founding fathers, so obviously it has a huge significance to us,” Bauserman said. “To say how you feel is very important, but there is a difference between right of speech and harassment.” The University of Arizona’s stance and enforcement of free speech will continue to be tested as three UA students await their court hearings in the coming weeks.

Students for Sustainability takes to the field BY ALANA MINKLER @alana_minkler

Stephanie Choi graduated in 2017 and studied English and literacy learning and leadership. She was an Students For Sustainability co-director as an undergraduate and is now a full-time staff member for Cuyahoga County, Ohio, working with renewable energy and energy conservation. “SFS was such a big part of my experience,” Choi, who was in the program all four years, said. There are more than a handful of University of Arizona alumni who have gone into sustainability careers across the nation. Many were part of Students for Sustainability while they were in college. SFS is now looking for future directors and leaders, hoping to give them experience in environmental leadership like many codirectors before them. Students for Sustainability has been an Associated Students of the University

of Arizona program since 2008, and many graduates have gone directly into the sustainability field. They now have about 100 interns split among 10 different committees. The committees take on certain environmental issues and topics, such as environmental social justice, waste reduction and energy and climate, which are all lead by students. “I think UA has endless opportunities and prepares you for what working is like as best as they can with the internships that they offer,” Choi said. Choi was co-director of SFS with Trevor Ledbetter, the current director of the Office of Sustainability at the UA. Ledbetter said he believes he knows why there are many accomplished SFS alumni that go into a sustainability field. “I think it really has to do with how the program really empowers and engages student to take their wildest dreams or wildest sorts of ideas for our campus and our community and turning those into real action and something they can actually implement,” Ledbetter said. Choi takes on a lot at the county’s office

of sustainability, but she plans to pursue a Master’s of Fine Arts degree in creative writing in the fall. “I really worked on the greenhouse gas emissions inventory for the communitywide and county operations and running the climate action planning process,” Choi said. Choi felt that her work had a cumulative effct on many people that ended up making a larger change. “It can be really rewarding in that sense, where you can educate a lot of people and just make small progress that eventually leads to more change in the future,” Choi said. “I really wanted to work in local government, so this was perfect for me. It was the perfect placement and type of institution and experience that I wanted.” Amy Stalkfleet, a senior studying finance, said that as the current codirector, she “leads SFS in its sustainability initiatives, empower students in the program to work and change their campus for the better and strategize the longevity of the organization and student success in the program.” She applied to be co-director around this time last year, after serving as a committee chair. Now, SFS is deciding on next year’s

director. New potential co-directors applied and interviewed in late March. “I hope that the newer generation and future co-director will push harder and farther,” Stalkfleet said. She also recognized the difficulties students can face when trying to make a difference. “I know that it’s hard as a student in the short time you’re in college and in your positions to feel like you can’t make a lasting impact, but you really, really can,” Stalkfleet said. “Students are so incredible at making a difference and speaking their voices; I encourage everyone to speak louder and be confident.” Stalkfleet plans to continue working in environmental organizations for non-profit organizations post-graduation. Kaitlyn Elkind graduated from UA in May 2015 and got her graduate degree at NAU in environmental science. She is now working at the Arizona Department of Environmental Quality as an Environmental Science Specialist II in the air quality division. “I loved my experience at University of Arizona and with Student for Sustainability,” Elkind said. “I held multiple roles while in SFS. My senior year, I was a co-director of SFS, which allowed

me to grow as a leader and taught me how to inspire other people on how they could make a difference.” Beyond the professional, Elkind also developed personal relationships with the people she worked with. “I met so many great people in SFS that I am still good friends with to this day,” Elkind said. “My UA and SFS connections have helped me expand, networking-wise.” Catherine Riedel is co-director with Stalkfleet and a senior studying environmental sciences and geography. “Trying to implement sustainable change is hard, particularly in a climate where people politicize it needlessly and don’t prioritize it to the level it needs to be,” Riedel said. “However, fighting through that and showing your constant passion can influence and touch so many other people.” She also had advice for people interested in becoming the next directors for SFS. “For future directors, I hope that they always hold onto the facets of sustainability that they love, that inspire them and that drive them,” Riedel said. “Having a clear and dedicated reason for what you’re doing makes all the hard work worth it.”

Keep striving... to find your passion.

When I graduated from Sunnyside High School, I wasn’t really sure what I wanted to do. I was interested in art and science - but when I discovered welding, I knew I had found my passion. I love knowing that I can make something that will last forever. When I graduate from Pima, I am going to further my education by getting a degree as a Welding Inspector. Tisha – Class of 2019
