Battle for Jefferson Park

Campus neighborhoods, developers spar over ‘mini-dorms’ By Brenna Goth ARIZONA DAILY WILDCAT Homeowners surrounding the university have taken their battle against “mini-dorms” to a new level. The escalating zoning conflict in the Jefferson Park Neighborhood led to homeowners taking civil action against

developers. The Jefferson Park Neighborhood Association filed a complaint of violation with the zoning administrator of the City of Tucson, targeting the development of severalbedroom “mini-dorms” in the neighborhood. Residents of Jefferson Park, a neighborhood about one mile north of campus, have been fighting against the development of

mini-dorms for almost 10 years, according to Bob Schlanger, a Jefferson Park resident and treasurer of the Jefferson Park Neighborhood Association. The complaint alleges these mini-dorms violate zoning codes in the neighborhood. The neighborhood is designated under DORMS, page 3

Program sparks scientific pursuits Conference seeks to facilitate research interest By Jazmine Woodberry ARIZONA DAILY WILDCAT UA undergraduates will present results of the Undergraduate Biology Research Program to students and faculty on Saturday. The event will also be open to local high school students for the first time. Cholla High Magnet School students will be attending the 22nd annual conference, where college students selected to participate in science research programs will present their findings at a poster conference. Jacob Fijal, who is in UBRP and spoke to the high school students who could be attending, works with microscopic roundworms that harbor bacteria to infect other insects through mutual symbiosis. People curious about researching as a career possibility would greatly benefit from the event, according to Fijal, a chemistry and microbiology student. “I really appreciated my UBRP advisors and coordinator, Carol Bender, who are very helpful and informative people of great inspiration,” Fijal wrote in an email. Some students will also bring microscopes to show physically what is presented visually on their posters. “Every year is a little different because the research presented is all new, every year,” said Carol Bender, program director of UBRP and its international counterpart, Biomedical Research Abroad: Vistas Open. Bender said a meeting with a teacher at a workout boot camp spurred the idea for the partnership, which aids high school students in fostering interest about science and facilitates college students in presenting their research

Student designs Rec restaurant By Jazmine Woodberry ARIZONA DAILY WILDCAT The UA’s remodeled Student Recreation Center now features a student-designed restaurant. A classroom competition project allowed UA design senior Joseph Ekloff to design every aspect of Fuel, from the floor plan to the countertops to the backgrounds of digital menus.

“There’s a lot more that goes into it. More than you think,” Ekloff said. “There’s a code for everything. There’s a budget for everything.” Ekloff said budgetary concerns and code standards for disability accessibility of the center changed some of his original and more modern plans for the center, a project that went from design to completion rather quickly. “We started the middle of last semester,”

he said. “We were introduced to the project and we have a few weeks to nail it all down.” As one of three finalists, Ekloff’s design for the then-unnamed restaurant went through market testing with students and was eventually chosen for the final product. Ekloff’s design for the patio was delayed due to budget reasons. Mark Zakrzewski, interim director of UA Campus Recreation, REC, page 2

$3 lunches eat up student fees By Eliza Molk ARIZONA DAILY WILDCAT

When students visit the Student Union Memorial Center on Wednesday, they can expect to save money. But on those same days, the UA could lose around $12,000 in revenue. The Student Union offers “Savvy Student” Wednesday

INSIDE Opinions: Odds & Ends: Classifieds: Comics Sports:

combination meals from 10:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. every week at several restaurants. The average combo meal is between $5 and $7.49 before the discount, saving customers about $12,000 per day, according to a funding application filed through the Office of Student Affairs. Victoria Christie , the associate director of dining

services, believes the $3 combo meal does not lose the university money because it “brings more people to the union.” The Student Services fee funds part of the $3 combo service, according to Christie. She believes it is one of the ways that the student fee dollars are “hard at work.” Out of the 4,889 respondents

to the Student Services fee survey conducted last semester, 76 percent of students voted in favor of the Savvy Wednesday deal. Around 58 percent of graduate students, which comprised about one-third of survey respondents, approved of the “Savvy Student” deal.

LUNCH continued from page 1 For the 2010-2011 school year, the program received $194,000, the second highest funding out of all funded initiatives. Out of the $2,138,500 allocated from the student services fee for 2009-2010, Savvy Student Wednesdays received about 15 percent, or $320,000. Some students are dissatisfied with “Savvy Student Wednesdays,” regardless of the savings they receive. “It is impossible to get something to eat in here … the line is to the door,” said Patrick Hughes, a sophomore majoring in public management and policy. He believes that the idea behind the discount is good, but the lines make him not want to go at all. Ashley Heidenreich, a senior majoring in history and classics, believes the deal would be more effective if they extended the duration of the savings period to all day.

“I wait in line for it sometimes, but I rather get something else and not wait,” she said. Employees like Adam Weiner, a political science sophomore who works at Chick-fil-A, describe $3 Wednesdays as a “complete zoo.” “We (the Chick-fil-A employees) are running back and fourth continuously for the entire time,” he said. “There is just so much to do, it literally takes seven or eight of us back there to get it all done.” Weiner does not believe that his work loses money due to the Wednesday combo meal because they get more customers during the deal, and it is cheaper to produce the ingredients needed in their sandwiches in bigger quantities.

New eatery adds to academic, physical components of Rec Center said he was trying to make the center open to the community and a better revenue source for the Rec Center as a whole. “We always try to enlist student help as much as possible,” said Meredith Franklin, who handles marketing for Fuel, “And what better way to do that but with a student?” But for now, the concept, according to Franklin, “is what makes sense for the center. We wanted to do something healthy because the Union as a whole is trying to move more toward healthy.” The restaurant opened at 7 a.m. Tuesday and is a partnership with Arizona Student Unions, according Zakrzewski. He spoke about the new restaurant in a presentation about new features at the Rec Center to the Associated Students of the University of Arizona. “Fuel, our new eatery, just opened this week so there are some healthy food options,” he said. “We want to create a new model for the Rec. If you look at Rec Centers across the country, you won’t find a lot of people that are doing what we are doing.”

The remodel of the lobby, Zakrzewski said, gave them the ability to add new aspects to improve the Rec Center’s space. “We took that as an opportunity to add the academic components, the restaurant (Fuel), the retail space and make it a little more upscale and make it feel a little more, not necessarily like a spa, but more than a sweaty old gym,” he said. Franklin said the mission of the restaurant was to make salads, flatbreads and wraps, “graband-go food,” to make healthy eating after a workout more feasible for students. Also, she said, making sure the restaurant was using tomatoes from the UA farm, herbs from the Student Recreation Center rooftop garden and biodegradable take-away containers, all support the mission of the eatery to be more sustainable. Even flat-fee refills on electrolyte water for any container a student brings in serves a sustainable purpose. “I would say Fuel is healthy eating on the go and you just don’t get that anywhere,” Franklin said. “There’s really no salad drive-thru’s.”

UA singer ‘humbled’ by anthem performance By Jason Krell Arizona Daily Wildcat

Just after 6 p.m. on Jan. 12, Dennis Tamblyn planted himself on stage at McKale Center. A music graduate student, Tamblyn should have started classes that Wednesday. Instead, he is about to deliver the national anthem to a crowd of 14,000. Behind him, UA President Robert Shelton stands flanked by the Arizona and United States flags, with one hand over his heart. In front of him, a blur of faces: classmates, faculty, Arizonans he has never met and President Barack Obama. In the wake of the tragic Jan. 8 shooting, Tamblyn was asked to open the “Together We Thrive” memorial service by singing the “Star-Spangled Banner” with the Tucson Symphony Orchestra. Before enrolling in the UA School of Music in 2000, Tamblyn held degrees in biochemistry and molecular physics, and his only singing experience was in a boy’s choir at the age of nine. He soon discovered that music truly made him happy. “Originally I wanted to be music teacher,” Tamblyn said. “But then as I started singing more and doing more opera, I realized how much I loved that, and so that’s really what I’ve stuck to since.” Since starting his career in opera, Tamblyn has been in shows all over the state with groups such as Arizona Opera, Phoenix Opera and even the University of Arizona Opera Theater. He also spent a summer abroad, singing at Opera Classica in Germany. Though he decided against a future in teaching, he has managed to help kids learn about music through Opening Minds through the Arts, an outreach program for elementary schoolers. He is currently helping first graders learn their reading and writing skills by having them write their own operas, all of which, Tamblyn says, are hilarious. It was this type of involvement

that inspired Shelton, College of Fine Arts Dean Jory Hancock and School of Music Director Peter McAllister to select Tamblyn to sing at “Together We Thrive.” At first though, he wasn’t sure why he was selected at all. “It wasn’t until the next day when Peter McAllister kind of explained to me that me being a student and being active in the Tucson community was an integral part,” Tamblyn said. “Because they didn’t want the memorial to be about U of A. It was being held at U of A but they didn’t want it to be a U of A thing. They wanted to get the Tucson community involved.” Tamblyn was honored by the privilege. Though he was only told of his performance the night before, he spent hours preparing for what could be one of the most memorable performances of his life — leaving plenty of nerves to overcome. “I pulled from every sort of resource that I had, internally, because I was freaking out,”

Tamblyn said. “I kept telling myself that they probably won’t show the national anthem on TV. They’ll probably just show the president’s speech … And it wasn’t until I was done singing that I realized that I was on TV.” The realization may have begun mid-song when Tamblyn’s phone accidentally turned on in his pocket and began vibrate. He would later discover that the calls were from friends telling him that he was on TV. As for what singing for Obama was like, Tamblyn said there was nothing like it, and he didn’t want to try making it about himself. “Normally in an event where the president is there, it would be a really great time to self promote,” Tamblyn said. “But being there really humbled me because I was right there with the victims and their families. Being right in the midst of

Developers, residents continue clash

R-1 zoning, meaning residences should accommodate single families. Minidorms include up to seven bedrooms and often house students who are unrelated. “A single-family home doesn’t have seven separate suites,” Schlanger said. “A single-family home, in this neighborhood, has two to four bedrooms. If a family or a group of people who have a long-term commitment to each other live in it, they share common access to the house. They live together in a traditional manner with the intent of living there for a prolonged time.” This battle has been described as legislation against students by many developers. Schlanger said the association is only trying to protect the integrity of their neighborhood. “We’re not here to talk about behavioral issues (of students),” Schlanger said. “We’re simply asking the city to enforce the neighborhood code the way it was written.” The complaint names Goodman Group Dwellings as a specific development

company that is not complying with R-1 zoning. Developer Michael Goodman said his houses provide a necessary service for students. “There’s no question that there’s a need for student housing,” Goodman said. “And they’re trying to get as close to the university as they can.” He said he typically builds houses with four to five bedrooms that could be used for single families. “Any investor would love to have a family in it, but that’s not who comes and rents,” Goodman said. The association filed the complaint Tuesday afternoon. The city is expected to respond within five days. The complaint may move up to the Tucson Board of Adjustment depending on the reply. Goodman said he will take legal measures if his development is restricted. “Are you kidding me? I just filed a lawsuit with them right now,” said Goodman, referring to restrictions passed in Feldman’s Neighborhood. Development may

be prevented while the complaint is in litigation. “Once you file with the Board of Adjustment, there’s a stay on activity that relates to the complaint,” Schlanger said. The neighborhood is also in the process of passing a design manual restricting construction and renovation of houses in Jefferson Park. Residents, developers and representatives from the City of Tucson have met regularly for over a year to discuss their positions. Some residents said the meetings have not brought understanding between the groups. “I think our positions are clear, but I don’t think there has been any compromise,” said Jefferson Park resident Joan Hall. Dyer Lytle, who has lived in Jefferson Park Neighborhood for over 10 years, agreed both parties remain firm in their positions. “I think we may have learned a bit from each other,” Lytle said. “But I don’t think we’ve come any closer to agreeing about things.”

all those people made me realize, ‘Hey, guess what, Dennis? This isn’t about you.’ So, it actually relieved a lot of pressure because I’m just there to do this in hopes that it could provide some sort of comfort or some sort of hope for those victims and the Tucson community in general.” Tamblyn felt that the president’s speech was more significant and felt very strongly about the entire event in general, appreciating how the president managed to bridge the gaps between political parties with his speech. “I’ll go on record saying I’m a very devout Republican, but (Obama’s) speech was so phenomenal, and it touched me in a way that I am forever grateful

for,” Tamblyn said. “The things he said about how this isn’t a time to be blaming, a time to be pointing fingers; how this was a time to look at your life and how well you’ve loved, and talking about (Christina Green) and how we need to be living up to her standards and expectations. Those things I will never forget.” Tamblyn would have liked to shake the president’s hand, but the experience he was afforded proved to be endlessly satisfying. “I kind of sat there looking across the bottom of McKale there, and seeing what these people needed; and that again it was about them and not about me. I got to sing for him. That’s all I needed.”

Apathy toward politics threatens education Elisa Meza Arizona Daily Wildcat


n Jan. 1, Tucson Unified School District’s ethnic studies department was deemed “out of compliance” with H.B.2281, a legislative promise from Tom Horne, Arizona’s former Superintendent of Public Instruction, to end ethnic studies; specifically the Mexican/American Studies Department. The only way he believes he can deem this program in compliance is to either eliminate it or to personally retract $15 million from TUSD’s entire budget within 60 days. It’s Horne’s commitment to boycott his own state from Arizona’s education that has made the district notorious as the most poorly funded system in the entire nation. H.B.2281 has been the cause for community activism since May 2009, when Gov. Jan Brewer signed the legislation. As she rolled the pen on a line to divide the community, hundreds of students from all over Tucson gathered —arms linked around the TUSD building—less than a mile away from the UA campus. They chanted through megaphones: “Our education is under attack! What do we do? Fight back!” Horne and lobbyists for H.B.2281 claim that the Mexican American Studies Department encourages ethnic chauvinism and is designed primarily for pupils of a particular ethnic group. How can one possibly claim that of a district that is 75 percent minority, and when students in the program have a 97.5 percent graduation rate, according to the department’s 10-year-long data collection? The curriculum is based on what works for this community. Looks to me like educators in this program found a loophole in filling the achievement gap of minorities nationwide that have been under the 50/50 shot of graduating. Campus apathy for what happens in Arizona must end here. I hope we can look beyond our campus borders and realize this community needs us. Now that Arizona politics have fought to rid of youth’s education, it seems that we’re next on the list. Superintendent John Huppenthal has become the newest elected threat to ethnic studies at both the K-12 and UA levels. When asked where the issues were coming from, Huppenthal told the Arizona Capital Times on Oct. 29, 2010, “That’s really the problem, this stuff is coming out of our universities and the ethnic studies here. Just dealing with it in the Tucson Unified, I think you also have to deal with it over there at the University of Arizona.” This “stuff” he’s talking about is our education; our human right to equitable, accessible, successful education. This “stuff’”is knowledge of a culture that should not be left out of the dominant narrative in our country’s history books. Huppenthal plans to utilize the Arizona Board of Regents (ABOR) as his platform for furthering his investigation of the UA ethnic-related departments. Even though ABOR is meant to serve communities, it has done nothing to stand up against H.B.2281. That’s what happens when politics control education. After 11 TUSD ethnic studies teachers and staff filed a lawsuit against Arizona on the unconstitutionality of H.B.2281 (backed by the United Nations), our Tucson community has only grown stronger. The heat is rising, but so are the voices. Where are ours? We can be student leaders. We can pressure our student government to pass resolutions that say more than just a strong opposition. Students all over Arizona could be future Wildcats. Diminishing opportunities for them will further the decrease in what we are able to study here. This will result in fewer majors, minors and courses in areas deemed illegal to the community of Tucson. What are we to defend, if not our community? — Elisa Meza is a junior majoring in English.

MAILBAG Mental illness not a cause for gun control

I speak for those of us whom would be affected most by a weapons ban, law-abiding citizens. Blaiming the recent shooting on the tool the perpetrator used is a dangerous move. Is the handgun at fault, or is the mental imbalance of the shooter more of a factor? A ban would only ensure that lawabiding citizens are unarmed and give people unwilling to heed laws an advantage in a life-or-death fight. Humans have a right to defend themselves. A ban would simply force criminals to find their tools elsewhere, and restrict innocent humans from an adequate defense. An article published on Jan. 19 mentions how the Brady Campaign ranks states on their gun laws, states with higher scores have more restrictive laws. So let’s compare: California has a ranking of 79, while New Hampshire has a ranking of 9. California has a violent crime rate of 5.61 per 1,000 residents. New Hampshire has a rate of 1.4 violent crimes per 1,000 people. Does anybody see the flaw? This system only examines law, not what happens. The Brady Campaign also aims to ban “assault weapons.” They claim “assault-style”

weapons pose a threat because they allow criminals to kill mass amounts of people. They cite hundreds of cases where assault weapons were used criminally since the repeal of the Federal Assault Weapon Ban in 2004. However, I could not find evidence that “assault” weapons always did more damage than a simple handgun. In many cases, their high capacity magazines seemed to almost encourage the shooter to miss! In a mailbag letter, mental illness and guns are compared to drunk driving. Do we get rid of cars or drunks? The problem with gun control is that it targets a symptom instead of a disease. The shooter in the recent tragedy has been reported as mentally imbalanced. It should be more of a concern that this person can slip through the cracks without being helped. I confidently say a mentally balanced person is usually not one to commit violent crime. ­— Jay Michael Fielder Operations management junior

Community must take decisive action

comes out of the University of Arizona. Even Gov. Jan Brewer came down to Tucson to show respect for slain judge and UA alum John Roll, to praise the excellent care given to all the victims of the shootings at the University Medical Center and to express her best wishes for her “friend” Gabrielle Giffords, an unyielding supporter of public higher education in Arizona. Then Brewer went back up to Phoenix and proposed a budget that will slash the already tattered state support of public universities by another 20 percent and community colleges by 47 percent. If we want to have the better civil society that we have all been talking about this week, it will take more than kind words and tears. I urge everyone at the University of Arizona — students, faculty and staff — to take action and respectfully tell Jan Brewer to restore university funding in this budget. It takes less than one minute to do so at:, so do it now! ­— Rafe Sagarin, Assistant research professor, Institute of the Environment

Guns aren’t the solution to gun violence Nyles Kendall Arizona Daily Wildcat


n the United States, firearms are easier to come by than adequate mental health treatment. Nowhere else in the world could an unhinged 22-year-old purchase a semiautomatic pistol and high capacity magazine. Unfortunately, gun control legislation will come no time soon. The gun rights lobby and its right-wing henchmen have derailed almost every attempt to reasonably restrict gun ownership, and they show no signs of letting up. Even in the wake of the Columbine and Virginia Tech massacres, two of the deadliest school shootings in American history, efforts to revamp gun laws were largely unsuccessful. Maximalist pro-gun organizations like the National Rifle Association and conservative politicians intent on “protecting the second amendment” are part of the reason why America is the most heavily armed nation on earth and leads the industrialized world in gunrelated homicides.

And if you thought pro-gun sentiment would be tempered in the wake of the shooting in Tucson, think again. Second amendment advocacy groups and pro-gun members of Congress have used the attempted assassination of Rep. Gabrielle Giffords and the deaths of six Americans to justify their absurd “more guns equal fewer crimes” argument. In the immediate aftermath of the Tucson tragedy, the Arizona Citizens Defense League (AzCDL) drafted the Giffords Zimmerman Act “in honor” of Giffords and her aide, Gabriel Zimmerman, who was killed in the rampage. The legislation would require the Arizona Department of Public Safety to train and arm all elected officials and their staffs. “What happened at the Safeway plaza shows why it’s so important for people to be armed,” Charles Heller, co-founder of the AzCDL, told the Los Angeles Times. Republican Rep. Louie Ghomert of Texas plans to introduce legislation that would allow members of Congress to carry concealed weapons in Washington, D.C., including at the Capitol building and House floor. Ghomert believes the measure will “deter people from attacking members.” And while he has neither proposed nor endorsed any gun legislation since the Tucson shooting, Republican Rep. Trent Franks of Arizona’s 2nd Congressional District has also joined

the chorus of pro-gun absolutists. “I wish there had been one more gun there that day in the hands of a responsible person,” Franks told reporters in response to a question regarding the shooting. But Franks is apparently unaware of the fact that there was another gun in the hands of a responsible gun owner on that fateful day. Joe Zamudio ran to the scene with his hand on the butt of his pistol, “ready to kill him.” But the man who he wrestled to the ground was not the shooter. Zamudio had mistakenly targeted one of the innocent bystanders who had managed to disarm and restrain Loughner before he could reload. If Zamudio had shot this man, the death toll that day would have been even greater. The massacre in Tucson should not be used as a justification for expanding gun rights, and pro-gun radicals who have sought to politically profit from this tragedy should cease and desist. What this country needs now more than ever is gun control. Lawmakers on both sides of the aisle must set aside their differences and come together on this issue. Guns aren’t the solution to gun violence. Those who believe otherwise should listen to Zamudio’s story. — Nyles Kendall is a political science junior. He can be reached at

Men arguing over woman throw punches

A male UA student reported that a Pi Kappa Phi fraternity member assaulted him on Jan. 17. A University of Arizona Police Department officer arrived to the student’s dorm at 4:30 a.m. where he found the student passed out on a couch with blood on his shirt. The officer spoke with the resident assistant who originally called in regarding the student. The officer woke the student and asked if he needed medical attention but the student declined. The student told the officer that a fraternity brother punched him around 3 a.m. at Pi Kappa Phi over a girl they both dated. Another officer took photos of the student’s injuries. The officer then went to follow up with the accused party on Jan. 17 at 10:30 p.m. The fraternity member told the officer the assault occurred at a party off campus. The student had arrived to the party and punched the Pi Kappa Phi member once in the face after he offered the other student a handshake. The Pi Kappa Phi member responded by punching the student but told officers he was unsure of how many punches were thrown or if he caused any injuries. The Pi Kappa Phi member then told the officers that he had already filed a police report with Tucson Police Department about the same incident. The officer followed up with the original student about the discrepancies in their stories, after which the student admitted the altercation did occur off campus. The Pi Kappa Phi member and the student met, resolved their issues and determined they no longer wished to file charges.

Catfight at AEPi

A female UA student contacted UAPD regarding a purse stolen from her at the Alpha Epsilon Pi fraternity house on Monday at 3:09 a.m. The student told the officer that she last saw her purse with an acquaintance, another female UA student, who left for another party with it in her possession. The UAPD officer contacted the other woman, who told the officer the purse was in her car the entire time. The acquaintance was compliant and returned the purse, replying that she and the other student got into a fight, causing her to leave the party. The woman came back, after attending another party with the student’s purse, when the two girls got into a fight. The acquaintance reported that the other student threw punches while she did not fight back. She also said she wanted to press charges. The UAPD officer followed up with a man at the fraternity house who said that when the woman returned with the purse, the two girls got into a fight. The man said both girls threw punches and pulled each other ’s hair in the main hall of the fraternity house. The officer asked if the man would be a witness to the assault. But the man said he would not be comfortable testifying as he is leaving Tucson on Thursday. The officer then contacted the student and advised her that it is impossible to tell who the aggressor was in the case, marking the incident as mutual assault. The student said that if there was a chance she could get in trouble, then she did not wish to pursue charges.

Hide your wheels, hide your shocks

A UAPD officer responded to Sky View Apartments in regards to a bicycle part theft on Sunday at 2:30 p.m. A male UA student told the officer his wheels and front shock absorbers were taken off his bike sometime Saturday night. The student requested that fingerprints be taken off of his bike to find the suspect. He also told the officer that his bike was parked in view of a security camera. The officer forwarded the case onto a detective who would follow up during the week.

What did you dream about last night? Nightmare? Fantasy? I dreamed about my boyfriend. I remembered this morning because I was talking to him all day, but now it’s too hard to remember. Scary? No. Well the scariest experience I had, I got lost in Tucson mall without my cell phone and without my friends. It reminded me of when I was a child and got lost on the streets away from my mom. Seriously, so terrifying. Favorite store in the mall? I like Black Friday. How did you and your boyfriend meet? We met in Taiwan. He goes to Taiwan University. So you are in a longdistance relationship? Yeah, every time we see it’s other it is a honeymoon. The vacations are so memorable that we spend together. Skype? Yeah we do that a lot. You really have to trust each other. I would not recommend it to someone who is not serious because the time apart is hard and there has to be a lot of trust.

If on campus, you may use any recycling bin regardless of the label.

Elite gamers play video game to set video game marathon record

He just set a whole slew of world records for playing video games and knows just where he’s going to put the official certificate from Guinness World Records. “I’ll put it right next to my master’s degree,” Dino said, just moments after he and two other elite gamers, Sean Crowley and Lauren Guiliano, spent 50 hours and one minute gaming at the PlayStation Lounge at the Sony Style Store in New York City. The event was partially intended

HOROSCOPES Today’s birthday: Money may not grow on trees, but this year it seems that way for you. Plant trees — your grandchildren will be grateful for the shade on a hot day. Plant seeds in the garden and in your career. You and your future generations will all reap the benefits. Water appropriately. Aries (March 21 - April 19) — Today is a 5 — It’s a good day to clean your desk or start that organizational project you’ve been putting off. Persevere and you’ll be grateful for the improvement. Taurus (April 20 - May 20) — Today is a 7 — To successfully manage today’s goals, you need to pay attention to what others think and allow them to make changes to improve the design.

Gemini (May 21 - June 21) — Today is a 7 — Decisions could be tricky, as you don’t get a clear picture of what others really want. Ask them to explain, and really listen for hidden gold. Cancer (June 22 - July 22) — Today is a 7 — You’re just about ready to take a vacation, but the choice of destination is still undecided. Compare locations and travel dates for the best price. Leo (July 23 - Aug. 22) — Today is a 6 — You’d love to be done with a particular project. Don’t push so hard that you break something.

Then make it your business to create that atmosphere around you. This may be easier than you thought. Scorpio (Oct. 23 - Nov. 21) — Today is a 7 — Although you act independently now, your compassion flows. Personal needs and help for others aren’t mutually exclusive. You can do both. Sagittarius (Nov. 22 - Dec. 21) — Today is a 7 — Someone else appears to be in charge, but you pull the strings from backstage. A family member provides unusual costumes and props. Enjoy the show!

Capricorn (Dec. 22 - Jan. 19) — Today is a 5 — If someone else feels under the weather, try simple home remedies. It may not take a prescription. Sometimes some chicken soup and kindness go farther. Aquarius (Jan. 20 - Feb. 18) — Today is a 6 — The last of yesterday’s requests gets fulfilled early, through independent action. You may not even know how it actually happened. That’s okay. Pisces (Feb. 19 - March 20) — Today is a 7 — Use your skills to formulate a question. Sensitive feelings require compassionate consideration. Create an atmosphere of trust that values independence.

Gordon Bates/Arizona Daily Wildcat

Redshirt junior Cory Chitwood, left, and head coach Frank Busch, right, have tried to put aside the rankings of the Arizona swim teamâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s highly touted meets this weekend and instead focus on its performance. The Wildcats will host Stanford and Cal this weekend.

As for the meets, junior captain Cory Chitwood, recently named Decemberâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Pacific 10 Conference Swimmer of the Month, is well aware of the talent coming to Hillenbrand Aquatic Center. â&#x20AC;&#x153;This weekend will have some of the fastest swimming in the nation,â&#x20AC;? Chitwood said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We consider these to be our rivals in the Pac10. Us, Stanford, Cal and Texas are usually in the top five.â&#x20AC;? Although thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s no hiding Cal and Stanfordâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s prowess in the pool, Chitwood, like Busch, also ignores

the rankings and solely focuses on the teamâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s upcoming performances. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I just care about the wins,â&#x20AC;? said Chitwood. â&#x20AC;&#x153;In my mind, I think weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re number one. Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m just looking forward to us getting on the blocks this weekend and seeing what we can do.â&#x20AC;? The menâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s side defeated both teams in dual season last year, while the women fell to both. Unlike the menâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s team, the womenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s side is going into this weekend with the lower ranking. However, the womenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s side is

coming off two consecutive wins against NAU and Oregon State, and could carry that momentum into this weekend. Despite the potentially higher levels of stress and pressure that can occur as the team inches closer to the end of its season, both Busch and Chitwood note their excitement. â&#x20AC;&#x153;This weekend should be really fun for us,â&#x20AC;? Chitwood said. Busch added: â&#x20AC;&#x153;This is the most fun time of the year for me. Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m looking forward to it.â&#x20AC;?

Again, there the Wildcats and Huskies were on a Thursday night, scrapping for Pac-10 supremacy. Only this time the conferenceâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s longest tenured coach, UWâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Lorenzo Romar, in his ninth season, was in a heated battle with a sophomore head coach in Arizonaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Sean Miller. The Wildcats, however, fell 85-68 in a game that was closer than the final score indicated. The veteran won out. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It was for first place,â&#x20AC;? said Arizonaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Derrick Williams. â&#x20AC;&#x153;They played better than us tonight. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re the better team.â&#x20AC;? Though the game played out as both teams missed opportunities, earned opportunities, then fizzled them away once again, the usual suspects from each team spouted their normal swagger and skill. Thomas, as advertised, drilled timely buckets and made the seemingly impossible plays that wouldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t show up in the box score. When his out-of-bounds save and resulting pass to forward Darnell Gant led to a ninepoint UW lead halfway through the second half, it was the epitome of the juniorâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s savvy and never-back-down swagger. Though Williams struggled in the first half and recorded his fourth foul with 10 minutes left in the game, nothing kept him from dominating. He played most of those final 10 minutes as Miller stuck with him. What else was the coach to do? Williams was the only one counter to Thomas. Still, the veteran won that battle, too. It was the plays made by the veteran Huskies and the possession squandered by Arizona.

And it wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t as if UW didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t give Arizona opportunities. Early on, Thomas, fouled by freshman point guard Jordin Mayes on a 3-point attempt, missed three free throws in a row. The teams combined to hit just 5-for-13 of their first 13 free throws. The Huskies had one series where they grabbed three offensive rebounds, took four shots and still couldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t stick the ball in the hole. Adding to the perplexing nature of the contest, the officials had some nonsensical calls as well, giving Thomas a free throw after UA forward Kevin Parrom fouled UWâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Matt BryanAmaning hard on a fast break. Bryan-Amaning was seemingly getting his eye looked at and Thomas was shooting in his place. Instead, they rescinded Thomasâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; first foul shot â&#x20AC;&#x201D; a miss â&#x20AC;&#x201D; to give Bryan-Amaning two more, which he made. But like everything else, the officiating went both ways. When UWâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Justin Holiday knocked down a 3-pointer on the Huskies last possession, an unnecessary dagger to the Wildcats with just seconds to make up a double-digit lead. In the end, you couldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t knock Washington or Thomasâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; egos. The Huskies gave Arizona a lesson in how to win. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Once we were down, we never caught back up,â&#x20AC;? Williams said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;When we go to Pullman, weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll be a whole different team. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Everybodyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s going to play hard. Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll make sure of that.â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Kevin Zimmerman is a journalism junior. He can be reached at

COMMENTARY BY Kevin Zimmerman sports writer

Wildcats fall flat in battle for first place in Pacific 10 Conference By Kevin Zimmerman ARIZONA DAILY WILDCAT SEATTLE — No rocks went uncovered in preparation for Arizona basketball’s showdown with Washington. But unfortunately, everything the Wildcats game-planned for tripped up Arizona, which found itself at the mercy of the Huskies, flexing their muscle in grasping the Pacific 10 Conference’s No. 1 spot. “We have to have a perspective,” Arizona head coach Sean Miller said. “If you play Washington at home, you have to play a great, great game. And tonight we didn’t.”

The Wildcats fell to 15-4 and 4-2 in the Pac10 in their 85-68 at the hands of Washington (14-4, 6-1 Pac-10) in Seattle, Wash. Sophomore Derrick Williams led Arizona with 22 points and 11 rebounds, but it wasn’t enough to match the impact of Washington guard Isaiah Thomas, who scored 22 points and 10 assists. “Isaiah Thomas, it’s not even close. There’s not one player in the country that’s more disrespected,” Miller said. “If he’s not one of the top four or five point guards in the country, then I tell you, I want to invite these guys who vote to come and watch film.” Both teams offensively rebounded the ball well early on, but had trouble converting

Gymcats limp into season opener Arizona welcomes ASU to McKale By Kevin Nadakal ARIZONA DAILY WILDCAT After starting off the season with a clean bill of health, the Arizona gymnastics team has a few bumps and bruises heading into tonight’s meet against ASU in McKale Center at 7. Junior Deanna Graham (back) and sophomore Aubree Cristello (shoulder) were injured Tuesday of last week, and the frustration

those into scores. But Thomas got going, the crowd got loud and the Wildcats found themselves the victims of a 7-0 UW run after earning an early 8-6 lead four minutes in. “It was a night they felt it,” sophomore point guard Momo Jones said. “They hit on all angles.” UA forward Kevin Parrom hit a 3-point bomb on the left wing to put out the flames less than a minute later, then UA forward Solomon Hill tied the score up with a bank shot in the lane at the 10:11 mark. That only led to another 7-0 Husky spurt, HOOPS, page 11

SEATTLE — Eerie, awkward and inconceivable — unpredictable play was exactly what made Thursday’s game for first place in the Pacific 10 Conference a classic. Despite wild flurries, the Arizona Wildcats’ match-up against the Washington Huskies lived up to its billing, highs and lows accentuating an atmosphere that perhaps renewed a recent but diminished rivalry. Or was it just the usual gutty play by the Huskies in front of their home crowd? “Exactly what I expected,” UA forward Solomon Hill said of playing the Huskies at their arena. “They play the same game everyday.” It was 2005, not that long ago, when Arizona’s Hassan Adams and UW’s Brandon Roy, leading the two best teams in the league, battled head-to-head in a 96-95 Arizona double-overtime win after UA overcame a 13-point deficit.

could easily be seen in head coach Bill Ryden’s face as he watched his injury-riddled team practice. “Without them we don’t even have enough people to field a team,” Ryden said. “Deanna (Graham) landed on her head (from bars) and hurt her back, Aubree (Cristello) hurt her AC joint in her shoulder (from vault).” Ryden had just discovered that

Swim to host Stanford and Cal By Kelly Hultgren ARIZONA DAILY WILDCAT Arizona swim and dive hasn’t competed in more than a month, and the Wildcats won’t have much time to ease back into competition with Stanford and California in town. The Cardinal and Golden Bears are two of the nation’s top programs, year in and year out. This season is no different, with Stanford boasting the No. 3 men’s team and the No. 1 women’s team, while Cal features a No. 4 men’s and women’s teams. The Wildcats will face the Cardinal today at 2 p.m. and the Golden Bears Saturday at 1 p.m.

“This weekend should be tough,” said head coach Frank Busch, who leads the No. 2 men and No. 14 women. “These are great teams we’re facing. There will be some knock down, drag out races. I really enjoy swimming with them, great coaches and great swimmers.” As always, rankings are irrelevant to Busch — it’s all about continuing to improve for the championship tournament in March. “The kids had a week off in December and have been working hard since then,” Busch said. “These are the dress rehearsals for the big event. There are no doovers. Now we want to be racing at our highest levels.” SWIM, page 8

Snaps three-game skid with win over Washington By Alex Williams ARIZONA DAILY WILDCAT For the first time in three games and 18 days, the Arizona women’s basketball team walked off the court with

a victory, beating Washington 61-58 at McKale Center last night. “We just had to win this game,” said freshman guard Candice Warthen after making her second start in as many

games. “There wasn’t another option.” The Wildcat victory didn’t come without bumps in the road. Arizona started out W-HOOPS, page 11

Wounded Wildcats remain confident despite injuries

Graham’s injury was still bothering her during Tuesday’s practice and immediately rushed her over to head trainer Doug Contaoi. No timetable has been set for Graham or Cristello, and both are considered “game-time decisions” depending on how they feel. If Graham and Cristello can’t compete, the rest of the team will have to step up considerably, and Ryden is depending on the upperclassmen for that. The Gymcats also need to improve in a handful of areas. “Definitely beam (needs to improve),” said assistant coach Randi Acosta. “Beam has been a struggle. Like I said, they perform really well in practice. So if we could just shake off the nerves and push through that, and attack it rather than be cautious when we get up there — then I think we really have a great team.” “I hope we can turn heads.” Ryden wants to see improvement this week after a second place finish last week in Utah. He said the team had several mental errors. “It’s been a rough two weeks, very rough two weeks,” Ryden said. “Losing out on practice last week really hurt us we weren’t prepared for that at all.” The gymcats practice time was cut due to President Barack Obama’s visit to campus. Due to security measures, McKale Center was locked down all day Wednesday and the Gymcats couldn’t train or work on rehabbing injuries. Despite of all the logistical issues and injuries, the team is still optimistic about its chances against the Sun Devils. The Gymcats placed fourth In the

hitting only one of its first fourteen shots, and had only nine points more than halfway in to the opening half. Arizona bounced back though, shooting 44 percent in the second half behind sophomore guard Davellyn Whyte’s 15 points and team-high four assists. Senior Ify Ibekwe came off the bench after battling a high fever the last few days, and added 10 points of her own. Senior forward Soana Lucet started 0-for-6 from the field before finishing with six points and five rebounds, but she made the game’s biggest play on the defensive end of the floor. With Washington trailing by only two points with just 20 seconds left on the clock and in possession of the ball, Lucet stepped in to take a charge and all but end Washington’s hopes. “When I saw the big girl with the ball down low, I was never worried,” Whyte said. “I just knew Soana (Lucet) was going to be in a good position.” Arizona head coach Niya Butts had nothing but high praise for the way Lucet was able to brush off her offensive struggles. “I tell you what, (Lucet) is tough,” Butts said. “I don’t know if a player works any harder than her. She’s committed to doing what needs to be done to win basketball games,

and I wouldn’t rather have anyone doing it than her.”

Familiar foes

After snapping its threegame skid, Arizona will take on Washington State on Saturday afternoon in McKale Center. Even though the Wildcats haven’t formally scouted the Cougars, Butts knows what Washington State is going to bring to the table. “We’re so familiar with that team, it seems like we’ve played them three times the last couple of years,” Butts said. “They’re familiar with us and we’re familiar with them, it’s going to be a battle.” Washington State is coming fresh off of a victory against ASU, but Butts isn’t concerned given the Wildcats faced a similar situation last season. “They did the same thing last year. I think they were even winless before they beat (ASU),” Butts said. “Confidence does a lot, and it’s going to be about who is the tougher team that night.”

Thomas controls Wildcats

jumping ahead 20-13 with less than nine minutes in the first half. Arizona scored five in a row before the Huskies opened up a 10-point lead on two Thomas free throws, putting the score at 28-18 with five minutes before the intermission. Keeping their 10-point cushion for a bit, the Huskies allowed Arizona to go on a 7-0 spurt — four points by Hill and three by Parrom — to bring Arizona within three with just more than a minute to play in the half. But Thomas nailed a timely 3-point shot with 1:11 left and the Huskies went to the locker room with a 36-31 lead. Williams struggled to score against UW’s length in the first half, shooting 2-for-7 from the field. But he erupted in the second period, scoring 16 of his 22 points

despite playing the final 10 minutes with four fouls. “They pack it in,” Jones said of Washington’s defense, which was mostly man with a mix of a 2-3 zone. “They sort of took (Williams) away.” Arizona tied the game at 38 after Williams hit a 3-pointer from the wing and then threw down a breakaway dunk off a UW turnover. Arizona took its first lead of the the half, a 4443 advantage with 16:05 to play, as Jones converted a layup on a UW turnover. It would be short-lived. Thomas helped the Huskies regain control by drawing another crucial bucket, an And 1 with about 13 minutes to play. His timing was of the utmost precision. After the Wildcats’ first lead at

the half, UW ran off a 16-6 spurt, capitalized when Thomas dove seemingly into the corner exit to save a ball, hustling back up to whip a pass to forward Darnell Gant for a 3-pointer for a 59-50 Husky lead. Washington’s emotional leader came as a contrast to Arizona’s two point guards. Jones had a 0-to-3 assist to turnover ratio in the first half and freshman backup Jordin Mayes, perhaps showing his youth, struggled from the foul stripe. “They set a ton of ball screens,” said Jones, who had the task of hounding Thomas. “Early in the clock, late in the clock, the middle of the clock … it’s just tough.” Washington forward Justin Holiday hit a 3-pointer with 4:53 to play, giving UW a 73-61 lead. It was seemingly the back

Tennis eager to start season By Zack Rosenblatt Arizona Daily Wildcat

After finishing the 2010 season on a promising note, Arizona men’s and women’s tennis teams start their seasons with high expectations for 2011. The men’s team, fresh off a 18-6 record and the program’s eighth trip to the NCAA tournament, has an influx of talented freshmen that has the team excited for the season to finally begin. “We are just itching to get the year going,” said assistant coach Tom Lloyd. A highlight last season was when the Wildcats upset UCLA, defeating their Pac-10 rival for the first time in 70 tries. The team lost three seniors from its squad, but with the addition of a top-ten recruiting class, there isn’t much cause for concern. In addition to four returning seniors, led by Andres Carrasco who is ranked No. 16 in the Southwest Regional rankings, the team has added the highly touted recruit Giacomo Miccini to its roster from Italy. “The sky is the limit with this team, its just a matter of putting it all together,” Lloyd said. The men’s first match of the season is tomorrow at home against UC Riverside. Last year, the women’s tennis team showed great improvement. After going just 7-17 in 2009, the Wildcats improved to 13-8 in coach Vicky Maes’ ninth year on the job. “(Last year) we showed huge improvement. We’re excited to get started but we want to be cautious,” said Maes. The team is ranked No. 49 nationally and three Wildcats, are ranked individually in the top 20. Freshman Lacey Smyth (No. 14), and Kim Stubbe (No. 18) along with junior Natasha Marks (No. 17) will try and lead the Wildcats to the tournament after just missing it last season. “We expect to make it to the NCAAs. If we can compete, I am very confident that we can do that,” Maes said. The women’s first game is today at noon against NAU.
