Party gunman still unidentified Off-campus housing complex faces questions over safety planning BRITTNY MEJIA Arizona Daily Wildcat

After a massive party ended in gunfire Saturday night, an off-campus housing complex has come under criticism by police officers for failing to ensure safety at the party. The Stone Avenue Standard apartment complex, located a little more than a mile from campus, hosted about 1,000 or more people at a party Saturday night, according to Sgt. Maria Hawke, a spokeswoman for Tucson Police Department. Although this is not the first time the complex has hosted a party, management failed to notify TPD or the Tucson Fire Department, Hawke said. Typically, a business is supposed to check with the fire department on maximum occupancy at an event, as well as have a fire inspector determine if the complex is observing that occupancy limit, she added. “If they’re going to have events like that, the expectation is, in order to maintain their zoning, they have to abide by the rules, which is if you’re going to have huge events like that, you make the appropriate notification to the authorities,” Hawke said. “In this case, they did not.” The Standard hired private security for the event, rather than relying on TPD to provide off-duty officers for

THE STONE AVENUE STANDARD APARTMENT COMPLEX was issued a red tag as a result of a party that ended in gunshots Saturday night. Police estimated that about 1,000 or more people were in attendance.

the event. John Hiserman, property manager for the complex, declined to comment on whether or not management contacted TFD or TPD prior to the party. “We’re still trying to damage control this and I know you guys are trying to sell ads and all that … but at the time being, we’re kind of keeping to ourselves,” Hiserman said. The apartment residents who threw the party would release a final statement on the event’s Facebook page, Hiserman added. He would not

comment further on the incident. TPD officers received noise complaints regarding the party, but had no idea about the size of the event until they arrived, Hawke said. Due to the number of calls Saturday night, TPD had not yet been able to dispatch officers to look into the complaints. However, shortly before midnight, an attendee of the party fired multiple shots into the air. TPD responded with all available officers. Officers closed down Stone Avenue to get everyone across the street to an empty

parking lot, Hawke said. There were no injuries. Officers are examining videos taken at the event, some of which were posted on YouTube, Hawke said, to determine who fired the gun but the party’s size is making the investigation difficult. “With so far as trying to identify who it was, with over a thousand people who were present there, efforts will continue that will include reaching out to the management,” Hawke said, “but there’s no guarantee they will be identified, obviously.”

Police remove Ka’Deem Carey from McKale

EMERGENCY RESPONDERS and drivers react to a three-car collision on Speedway Boulevard late Monday evening. A late-model Cadillac CTS struck the car in front of it. A third car struck the Cadillac from behind. Gerry Valencia, a junior studying family and consumer sciences, was driving the Cadillac. “I was going like 25 miles an hour and I tried to brake, but it was too late for me,” he said. “I had to kick my door open because it was dented in.” The accident delayed traffic on Speedway, between Mountain and Park avenues.

Arizona running back Ka’Deem Carey was removed from Thursday’s basketball game against UCLA in McKale Center after a verbal confrontation with event staff and police, according to a campus police report. The incident comes on the heels of earlier legal troubles for Carey, regarding a domestic violence incident with his ex-girlfriend in December. Carey, an All-American running back for the UA in 2012 and the nation’s leading rusher, was removed from T h u r s d a y ’s KA’DEEM CAREY basketball game due to a “lack of cooperation” with UA event staff. He and his cousin, Hakeem Adams-Johnson, were “double seated and sitting on the backs of the chairs.” Frank Duarte, a UA Athletics event staff member, initially asked Adams-Johnson and Carey to leave, according to the report. Duarte asked them to move on “four occasions.” After Carey ignored him, a University of Arizona Police Department officer asked Carey to move and he complied. Carey told the officer they were sitting in that area because “they couldn’t find their seats.” When the officer asked both of them for their tickets, Carey responded, “Get the fuck out of my face.” He then asked, “Do you know who I am? I’m an AllAmerican.” The officer asked Carey and Adams-Johnson to accompany him outside. They agreed, but

Enrollment in agriculture college increases at UA, across nation KELSI THORUD Arizona Daily Wildcat

Agricultural departments at universities across the nation have seen a rise in both undergraduate and graduate enrollment. The number of undergraduate students enrolled in agriculture programs nationwide has risen more than 17 percent since 2006 and continues to increase, according to the Food and Agricultural Education Information System database. In the fall of 2011, there were 3,265 students enrolled in the College of Agriculture and Life Sciences at the UA, an increase of more than 1,000 students from 2006, according to the UA Office of Institutional Research and Planning Support. The agriculture department at the UA is promoting the growth in enrollment by adding multiple program specialties and facilities. The UA has four Tucson Area

Agricultural Centers that provide students with a location to research and study food production, greenhouse production and breeding. There is also a 50,000-acre range outside of Tucson that is used for research studies and several direct internships that are available to students to help increase the appeal of the program and promote a higher standard of education in agriculture. “It is absolutely critical that farmers stay highly educated and proactive in increasing productivity on their farms in an efficient manner,” said Steve Husman, director of the UA’s Tucson Area Agricultural Centers.” There is absolutely no question that agriculture production is going to be as important, if not more so, in the future from the challenges relative to population increase.” The rise in the number of

Nationwide challenge aims to lower food waste by 5 percent Whitney Burgoyne Arizona Daily Wildcat

The UA, along with several schools, grocery stores and restaurants, has joined in a challenge aimed at lowering food waste during the course of a year. The Food Recovery Challenge, coordinated by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, seeks to lower food waste by at least five percent this year. Compost Cats, a student-run group on campus, will take part in the challenge in order to reach their goals and gain recognition on campus from students who would like to become more involved. Rachel Maxwell, a graduate student studying environmental science and a cofounder of Compost Cats, said that progress on this challenge has already been started by setting up bins inside and outside of restaurants around the Student Union Memorial Center. This makes composting and recycling more convenient for students, according to Maxwell. Dining services will also hire two new employees who will take into account how much food is being made and how much is wasted, so that the student union will receive more economical amounts of food to help cut down on waste, she added. “I think the biggest thing is going to be pretty much education, but now that dining services is really interested in it as well, I think that’s going to be the biggest help,”

Kelsee Becker/ARIZONA Daily Wildcat

Rachel Maxwell, a graduate student studying environmental science, is one of the founders of Compost Cats. The student-run organization started in early 2011.

Maxwell said. Stickers, table toppers and flyers are being distributed around campus to help educate students about Compost Cats and its goal to reduce food waste. Chester Phillips, a doctoral student supervising the project, said that one ton of waste is collected from the student union in a week. He added that it costs $80 per ton

just to throw it all away. The waste that is collected is taken to a composting farm at the West Campus Agricultural Center every Tuesday and Friday morning. Phillips said that 10 percent of families in Arizona are food insecure, which means they do not know when they will get their next meal. He added that 35 to 40 million pounds of fruits and vegetables are deemed

unsuitable and are thrown away. Phillips also said that the fruits and vegetables that are not rotting, as long as they don’t have far to travel to a store, would be fine for selling. “We saw all the compost [at the farm] and it seems like it’s effective in general,” said Katie Netzel, a senior studying creative writing and linguistics and an employee at Sabor. Netzel added that it is harder to get results when students are expected to sort out the materials themselves, because most of them seem disinterested. “It would be more effective if the compost bin was where the employees had access,” Netzel said. Taeler Motta, an accounting freshman, said that the pictures on the bins make it easy to recycle and compost. She added that she tries to recycle regularly, whether in the student union or at home. “I just think people don’t know enough about the differences between composting and trash,” Motta added. Composted items are paper, horse manure, tree scraps, food waste and animal bedding from the university labs. Phillips said 3,000 pounds of animal bedding material is collected each week, adding to the efforts of the program. Business partners involved in the compost project include Beyond Bread, Whole Foods Market, Cellar Bistro, Sabor, Subway, Chipotle and many others.

New statue to be dedicated at museum, sculptor will speak at ceremony today Rachel McCluskey Arizona Daily Wildcat

A dedication ceremony for a new statue on campus will be held at the Arizona State Museum today. A statue called “Waiting for Grandfather” by John Suazo was given to the museum in October 2011 from the estate of Burt and Brenda Lazar, through their sons Larry and Adam. However, the statue was not placed outside of the museum until Jan. 8. The dedication ceremony will feature a speech by Suazo as well as a chance for attendees to meet him at the museum located on 1010 E. University Blvd. at 4 p.m. “It’s special because it’s a large sculpture and we get to permanently exhibit [it] out front to the public who constantly view it,” said Andrew Higgins, assistant ethnological collections curator. “That’s always special because a lot of the objects rotate with the exhibits that we do and are stored in cabinets.” The sculpture is about a mother waiting to see the grandfather to show him her new son for the first time, Higgins said. Carved out of limestone, the

168-centimeter tall statue was completed in 1986. Museum Director Beth Grindell will begin the dedication ceremony by welcoming an expected crowd of 75 to 100 people and talking about the museum and the sculpture, Higgins said. Following this, Suazo will talk about his work. Suazo is considered an educator as well as an artist because he has a “natural propensity for sharing enlightenment,” according to a press release. Suazo is a sculptor of Taos Pueblo who has worked to offer educational opportunities for the youth. Higgins said that Suazo’s major influence comes from his uncle. The Lazar family were avid collectors and supporters in Native American and Hispanic arts, Higgins explained, and when they passed away, their sons donated part of the collection to the Tucson Museum of Art and the statue to the Arizona State Museum. “They had this Native American sculpture and asked if it would fit anywhere in the museum and, of course, we thought it would be great in front of our south building,” Higgins said.

Student reigns over self-made company Renee valencia Arizona Daily Wildcat

A UA student plans to flip the sunglass industry upside down with his self-made company. Managing his business, Crownwood Eyewear, and an 18unit class schedule, Adam Goeglein, a communications junior, keeps track of his life with two iPhones and an hourly planner. Originally from Los Angeles, Goeglein transferred to the UA in the fall of 2012 in hopes of receiving his bachelor’s degree and jumpstarting his business. Adam’s entrepreneurial goals began in high school where he began selling knock-off and street vendor sunglasses. He said after he began to understand the sunglass industry, he founded his business idea. “Once I realized Ray-Bans were really not that special and they were just pretty much the same as any other glasses for like three times the price, I thought it was ridiculous and decided to do something about it,” Goeglein said. Since Goeglein was 16, he has worked full-time, saving all of his earnings for his business idea. At the age of 21, Goeglein has invested the past six months, his savings and his life, entirely to Crownwood Eyewear. “I was tired of buying designer

knockoffs and I couldn’t afford Ray-Bans,” Goeglein said. “I created Crownwood Eyewear to bridge that gap so everyone can afford high quality sunglasses also.” The design and construction of the sunglasses was fully created by Goeglein. Spending hours researching, Goeglein focused on materials for sunglasses, sunglass price ranges, and mediums online that would help him create his product. With the brand slogan “Every King has a Crown,” the sunglasses come in a variety of styles, made of either acetate or bamboo. “I have the bamboo and acetate imported from China and I have that sent back to China to mold companies that make the glasses. That is the most expensive part,” Goeglein said. Goeglein runs his business almost entirely alone. The manufacturers and material he receives are solely through overseas companies and online mediums. “I got all these ideas and information pretty much all by figuring it out by myself,” he said. Goeglein’s roommate and fraternity big brother Shervin Imankhan, a communications senior, has helped him with advertising and promotion for Crownwood Eyewear through social media. “I saw how dedicated and serious

Adam was about this company and I wanted to help him with whatever I could,” Imankhan said. Besides Imankhan, Goeglein says the only other person that has truly helped him with his company is his dad, Patrick Goeglein, a real estate agent in Los Angeles.

Connecticut residents talk gun control at state Capitol MCCLATCHY TRIBUNE

HARTFORD, Conn. — More than 1,000 Connecticut residents descended upon the state Capitol on Monday to voice their views on gun control in the wake of the shooting massacre last month at a Newtown elementary school. Some speakers called for a ban on military-style assault weapons and highcaliber magazines that allowed killer Adam Lanza of Newtown to shoot 20 children and six educators in a span of about six minutes. Multiple speakers countered that any gun control laws would infringe on the Second Amendment rights of law-abiding citizens who have not broken the law. They said that criminals, like Lanza, have always disregarded the law and would continue to do so. They said that the Virginia Tech shooter did not use an assault weapon, and the Columbine High School killers committed their crimes during the federal assault weapons ban. Overall, an estimated 1,400 citizens packed into the Capitol complex, where they watched the actual testimony from Room 2C, the largest hearing room in the building. Some witnesses blamed Lanza and his mother, who owned the guns that he stole before heading to Sandy Hook Elementary School on the morning of Dec. 14, 2012. “The parents have to know their child and their behavior,” said Gregory J. Droniak, a 58-year-old lifetime member of the NRA from Derby. “I’m opposed to gun-free zones. Sandy Hook was a gun-free zone.” Tim Rockefeller of North Branford, an exMarine, said, “I don’t believe any law would stop a madman from killing his own mother.” Rockefeller said he was concerned that many of those testifying had been using the wrong terms, in his view.

that does not require a college degree, according to some. “When people think agriculture, they think sows, plows and cows,” said Andie Tanner, a senior studying agricultural technology management and education. “Agriculture isn’t that way anymore. Agriculture is science and people forget that.” Some believe students are attracted to the industry because it

Detective Barbara Mattson of the Connecticut State Police Department displays a Bushmaster semiautomatic weapon during a hearing at the Legislative Office building in Hartford, Conn., on Monday, Jan. 28.

“The term ‘assault weapon’ is a political term, not a gun term,” Rockefeller told lawmakers. “An assault weapon is a made-up term.” Like other speakers, Rockefeller received polite applause at the end of his testimony. The two co-founders of the March for Change mentioned that their group will be holding a large rally outside the state Capitol on Valentine’s Day, Feb. 14. Nancy Lefkowitz of Fairfield, one of the cofounders of the March for Change, said that there has been a “gross misinterpretation of the Second Amendment” that has allowed citizens to purchase “killing machines” that

The Newtown shootings, she said, “turned thousands of residents of this state into single-issue voters.” She told legislators that her group will be watching closely on how they vote on the gun issues. Meg Staunton of Fairfield, a fellow cofounder of the March for Change, told lawmakers in her brief testimony that public opinion polls show that the general public wants gun control. “Why are people saying this legislation will be difficult or almost impossible to

RichCrest Farms, located in Cochise, Ariz., promotes youth participation by partnering with programs that bring children to the farms to experience what it has to offer. “A lot of people in their 20s, they don’t look at being a farmer as a career. I think if more people came to the farmers’ markets and the U-pick’s and stuff like that, then the youth will see that there is a career in that,” said Josh Dumas, a farmer from RichCrest Farms.

pass?” Staunton asked legislators. “People will live or die based on how you decide to vote.” Christopher Yen of Norwalk, a Harvard graduate who is now employed by a hedge fund in Connecticut, said the answers on gun control should come from common sense. He is opposed to any extension of the assault weapons ban that had been enacted and has since expired. “These ideas have been tried before at the federal level from 1994 to 2004,” Yen said. “Columbine, Connecticut lottery. ... These laws don’t work. They failed to save a single life. ... Virginia Tech ... these laws would have done nothing. ... Ten-round magazine? Seven-round limit? Doesn’t make a difference. ... Your legislative efforts are better spent elsewhere.” Like others, his comments received a round of applause from gun supporters. Daniel A. Novak, a 64-year-old Manchester resident and gun permit-holder who was wearing a baseball cap with the letters NRA emblazoned in yellow, said he bought a Baretta .32-caliber that helped him to protect himself from “road ragers and hooligans. He said that his neighbors have guns, too, and he feels safe in his residential neighborhood. He said he pays about $4,000 per year in property taxes in Manchester and would not mind if some of the money was spent to pay police officers who would work in the elementary schools. Michael Anderson of New Hartford said that he owns an AR-15 rifle “to protect myself and my family” from any intruders or criminals. He described the AR-15 as a “modern sporting rifle.” “It is the tool, not the man,” Anderson told lawmakers Monday afternoon, as lawmakers still had not finished the first page of speakers on the list.

Carey approached the officer, asking what the problem was. He said that the pair did not actually have tickets, but were having problems getting them, according to the report. Carey then “got close” to the officer, who told Carey to “back off.” When Carey did not comply, the officer spoke in “a louder voice” and Carey took several steps back, according to the

report. A background check did not return any warrants out for either man. The officer told both that they would have to leave the game area. Adams-Johnson is not a UA student. Carey was referred to the Dean of Students Office for a code of conduct violation. Earlier this month, Carey pleaded not guilty to misdemeanor assault and disorderly conduct charges. He is set to return to court on Feb. 6 for a pre-trial hearing.

Look away from Lulu: Get to know men without social media K.C. LIBMAN Arizona Daily Wildcat

M

en: We’re being called out. If you’ve slighted any of the fairer sex on your quest for carnal domination of any form, you’re probably now on Lulu, and your reviews and “profile” may not be as squeaky-clean as you’d like. Lulu is an iPhone and Android app that allows women to rank men based on performance, commitment, ambition and a variety of factors that make up a profile, replete with information culled from Facebook. It’s an open platform that takes cues from Yelp and applies them to men, with ratings and attributes changing as more women complete reviews on a man’s profile. The best attributes on a profile are hashtagged, allowing users to click on that trait and see more men like him. And no, guys, this is a girl’s game only: In order to fully use Lulu, you must be denoted as female via your Facebook profile. Essentially, Lulu ruins the notion of a first impression. Give a girl your first and last name upon introduction, and within seconds she can see the best and worst traits you’ve got to offer. For some of us, this is a double-edged sword. Girls, your new friend at the bar may always pay for drinks and dinner, but he’s got a habit of being gone by morning. He may be a “giver,” but he’s not as wellendowed as you may have hoped. If you’re not shaking in your boots now, guys, you very well should be. While there’s not a lot you can do to change your past, Lulu says its mission is to “encourage good, gentlemanly behavior.” If that’s a path in life you want to take, then good for you. Should you decide to continue your all-American, red-blooded male ways, then that’s just fine too, because the concept of Lulu is as blatantly one-sided as it comes. Here’s the clincher: Free-form reviews, independent from attributes and scores, allow vindictive ex-girlfriends to go to town on your reputation for anyone to see. Should there ever be a “by men, for men, about women” rebuttal to Lulu, it would be protested against with extreme force. The most obvious angle to a maleoriented Lulu would be misogynistic, with not nearly enough positivity to quell the screaming female masses. Rather, we men already talk about potential hookups, or are so oldfashioned as to hope that good conversation and charm will get us as far as the cab ride back to your place. Lulu now gives girls the home-field advantage. Knowing who guys are before you even really get to know them seems like little more than an invasion of privacy in which men have no chance to redeem themselves. Maybe there was a wronged woman in his past, whom he bailed on in the middle of the night, but Lulu users have no way of confirming such evidence. Besides, he may have actually changed his ways. Without delving into the eternal social media debate, it’s easy to see the pitfalls that Lulu has opened up in the everevolving field of courtship. Should Lulu ever find its male contemporary, women would feel nothing but objectified, but Lulu does just that. Put the phone away and take a shot — just talk to that cute guy at the bar. His Lulu profile could tell you about his past, but gives little assurance that he’s the same guy making you laugh over cocktails. — K.C. Libman is the arts editor for the Arizona Daily Wildcat.

In response to “AZ bill to block federal gun enforcement just another extremist tantrum” (by the Daily Wildcat Editorial Board, Jan. 28): Well, Alexander Hamilton was also one of the Founding Fathers who wanted to make George Washington a king, so what else would you expect from him? How about Jefferson, who wrote in the famous 1799 Kentucky Resolution that when the federal government abuses its power, that the state has … “the unquestionable right to judge of its infraction; and that a nullification, by those sovereignties, of all unauthorized acts done under colour of that instrument, is the rightful remedy.” If the Wildcat wanted to have an intelligent discussion about federalism and states rights, they could have included multiple sides of this very historical debate. Instead, you throw around lazy epithets like “stupid”, “idiot”, “temper tantrum”, “political extremist acting like a dumb kid.” So I guess Thomas Jefferson was an idiotic, dumb kid? The left has used the media publicity of the Sandy Hook tragedy to attack the Second Amendment rights of law abiding, peaceful citizens (which was, of course, their goal well before Sandy Hook). I suppose those under attack are just supposed to shut up and not use their political representatives to defend their rights? ­— pfffft

Police Beat MAXWELL J MANGOLD Arizona Daily Wildcat

Cash only

Seven vending machines in the Catmart vending area near the BioSciences West building were damaged at 5 a.m. on Jan. 23. The incident was reported the following morning by a UA custodial employee who said all the vending machines in the area had been damaged. He noticed the damage upon his arrival at work. None of it had been there the day before. Four of the machines were from Coca-Cola; the other three belonged to Tomdra Inc. Both distributors were notified and said they wanted to participate in judicial proceedings. Photographs of the area were then taken. During a UAPD officer’s investigation, he noticed none of the products had been stolen but each of the cash collectors and scanners were missing. Each Coca-Cola collector and scanner was valued at $1,500, according to a company employee. All of the Coca-Cola machines had been damaged in a similar manner, and two of the Tomdra machines had their doors pried open. The police were able to lift a thumb and palm print from the interior of a Tomdra machine. Police also noticed blood near where the cash collector and scanner had been located on a Coca-Cola machine. The prints and blood samples were both submitted into property and evidence. The prints were forwarded to the Pima County crime lab, while the blood sample was forwarded to the Department of Public Safety for analysis.

Clip and run

A red Range Rover “clipped” a bicyclist near the intersection of Park Avenue and Second Street at 12:54 p.m. on Jan. 24. Upon arrival, UAPD officers spoke with the driver of the vehicle and she said she’d been traveling northbound up Park Avenue, when a bicyclist came from her left side, “cut in front” of the vehicle and was hit by her car. The collision knocked the biker to the ground, but when the woman asked the man if he needed medical attention, he replied, “I’m an EMT.” He then rode away from the area, leaving the woman unsure of what to do, so she called UAPD. The incident was documented. No damage to her car resulted from the accident.

3 Things College Students Love Talking About How much or little time they spend on homework As college students we love talking about how much, or how little, time we spend on assignments. It’s a way of trying to seem better than everyone else. “I didn’t do the reading — I never do.” “Yeah, my 25-page paper is due tomorrow but I’ll do it before class!” Just stop it. How much *ahem* fun they had last night Sometimes undergrad is like one big weekend stretched out over 4 to 6 years. The weekend, which begins on Thursday, is for tripping over the new trolley tracks on University Blvd. or PRAYING that your friend really does in-fact get to cut the line at Dirtbag’s, then bragging about it all in Comm. 110 on Monday morning. Which college they COULD have gone to As a T-Loc, it’s fun when my friends who aren’t from Zona talk where they could have gone to school. Why am I wasting my time at U of A when I should be at Stanford? They always say something like, “Tucson is soooo sketchy” or they see an iffy tattoo/piercing place and say “That’s Tucson!” I hate to break it to you but bad taste is everywhere. So, which of these three are you guilty of, Wildcats?

Time to promote copper to full time

Chol, York biding time, in ‘good mindset’ for future

JAMES KELLEY Arizona Daily Wildcat

W

hen you get down to it, players and coaches change, so really, the uniforms they wear and logos they represent are likely to change too. Not surprisingly, supporters are passionate about their team’s colors, but when the Arizona softball team debuted its new copper helmets, the reaction was almost completely positive. When the Arizona softball Twitter account (@UA_Softball) tweeted a photo of the new addition on Jan. 16, it was retweeted 23 times and favorited 22 times. When the football team debuted copper helmets, the vast majority of Wildcat fans on message boards seemed to enjoy the addition. The only consistent criticism of using copper is that it “isn’t a school color,” except in reality, it is. It is the first hue on the UA’s extended palette. “It has historically been and currently is a key economic driver for our state,” said a representative of Red Bar, the UA’s branding source. Old Main was designated as the School of Mines for a time. Leatrice Eiseman, one of the country’s foremost authorities on color, added copper to the school colors. I’m no expert on color, and red, white and blue look great and “Wildcats” is a great nickname, but that color combination or moniker are hardly original. There are 27 teams in collegiate sports that use the nickname “Wildcats.” According to sportslogos.net’s database, no NCAA Division I school uses copper. It is also pretty much nonexistent in professinal sports. Since the Arizona Diamondbacks replaced copper with “sand” in their color palette, no major professional sport team has used copper. The Arizona Rattlers wear copper, but the Arena Football League is about as relevant as the Lingerie Football League now. Promoting copper would be a nice ode to the state and its history, unlike Arizona State University’s recent color addition. ASU added black to its color scheme, like pretty much every team that is interested in gimmicky trends. At least it goes with the Sun Devils’ new trident logo. Making copper a primary color would continue the UA’s campaign of making copper a primary color and spreading the school’s name around the state, like the “This is Wildcat Country” billboards in Phoenix and other parts of Arizona. While ASU is sporting black uniforms in an attempt to unify supporters for certain games, UA would be adding a color that has actual significance to the state. “Copper” is just about the only one of the state’s famous “Five C’s” that anyone remembers and it actually has a connection to the UA sports. The roof of McKale is copper, though it has turned brown over the past 40 years. Plus, it was copper mining companies that donated the bulk of the money to build Arizona Stadium in 1929. Tucson used to host the Copper Bowl. Last year the men’s basketball team wore silver uniforms and the softball team added drab gray uniforms not too long ago. Copper would be the natural fashion forward progression of the UA gear while doubling as a nod to the past. — James Kelley is a history senior.

ARIZONA RESERVE PLAYERS Angelo Chol (right), and Gabe York (left) are two players head coach Sean Miller refers to when he discusses the future of the UA basketball program. York hit two 3-pointers against USC on Saturday.

Cameron Moon Arizona Daily Wildcat

Arizona fans may have caught a glimpse of the future for the Wildcats in the final eight minutes of Saturday’s 74-50 win over USC. Freshman guard Gabe York, who hadn’t played in a game since a victory over Miami on Dec. 23 and has only played in nine games this season, hit 2-of-5 shots from beyond the 3-point line against the Trojans. York and sophomore forward Angelo Chol have not seen ample minutes through the first half of the season in head coach Sean Miller’s rotation, thanks to a logjam of players at both the guard and forward positions. York is stuck behind senior Mark Lyons, sophomore Nick Johnson and junior Jordin Mayes, who have all been through at least one season with Miller. Lyons practiced every day for Miller while redshirting at Xavier in 2008. Chol is jammed behind the freshmen trio of Grant Jerrett, Brandon Ashley and Kaleb Tarczewski, all of whom are more polished offensively. Chol was regarded as a “raw” offensive player with shot-blocking potential, coming out of high school. “They’re definitely two very talented players,” Ashley said. “On any other team, I feel like they’d be getting major minutes. We’re such a deep team. It’s hard for everyone to get in the game and play a huge role.” It doesn’t make it any easier for Chol and York that the Wildcats have played in so many tightly contested games, especially against Florida, Colorado and San Diego State. Such games make it hard for Miller to stray from his rotation of eight trusted players. Arizona’s depth has been a double-edged sword for players who may not be receiving the minutes they believe they deserve. On one hand, Arizona’s experience means it has a legitimate shot to beat any team it plays. On the other hand, it means that players like York and Chol will have to wait their

turn to receive those minutes. “If you fast-forward to a year from now and think about who we lose and the role [York] can have…” Miller said, “I think it made all of us feel good.” Chol has seen more playing time than York. He has played in every game this season, aside from games against Oregon, ASU and UCLA. However, his minutes are down from 12.1 last season to 8.3 this season. Considering that Arizona (17-2, 5-2 Pac-12) has won almost every close game it has been in, no matter the fashion, it works out for Chol, who just wants to win. In a meeting in Miller’s office last week, Chol expressed as much to his coach. “Angelo wants to play,” Miller said. “He said, ‘Coach, as long as we’re winning, you never have to talk to me.’ Some guys may say that and as soon as they leave, they’re on a different path. Angelo is really on that path.” Part of York’s transition to the collegiate level has been adjusting to guarding much bigger, stronger and more experienced players, a weakness for him because of his small stature. At 6-foot-2, 185 pounds, York is one of the smallest players on the court. “It’s just repetitions,” Miller said, when asked about what York needs to do to improve defensively. “He’s not a big guy, so he needs to be in the right place at the right time.” Miller has had many conversations with York about how to make the most of his playing time, even if it comes in the final minutes of a 24-point victory, as it did Saturday. By all accounts, the talks are working. Miller said that York is in “a really good mindset,” and he has improved by “leaps and bounds.” Against East Tennessee State and USC, the most recent games in which York has played more than two minutes, he hit two 3-pointers in both games. “The way your break through in [York’s] situation is to have a game like tonight and make everyone see that ball go through,” Miller said. “It was great to see him shoot the ball like he did. He’s a big, big part of our future.”

Arizona baseball works to Wildcats unveil defend its championship deal for

matchup with ASU

Arizona Daily Wildcat

Head coach Andy Lopez and the Arizona baseball team suited up Monday afternoon for the first full week of team practice and began the work of defending its 2012 national championship. “I’m eager,” Lopez said about the upcoming season. “We’re not up to speed by any stretch of the imagination, but we’re headed in the right direction.” Seven months ago, the Wildcats swept two-time defending champion South Carolina in Omaha, Neb. to win the university’s fourth baseball championship, its first since 1986. This year’s team, however, will look significantly different from last year’s squad, as there was a great deal of roster turnover in the offseason. Ace pitcher Kurt Heyer and five of the Wildcats’ everyday starters from last season have either graduated or were drafted into the major leagues, including outfielder Robert Refsnyder, who received the 2012 College World Series Most Outstanding Player award. But Lopez has been in this position before. In 1992, Lopez led Pepperdine to the school’s first and only national championship. Twenty years later, he said he understands that roster turnover isn’t the biggest of issues. “The biggest challenge is that the young guys come in and think they have to be super special because they play on the national championship team,“ Lopez said. “And the older guys think they have to work harder because they’re not freshmen and that’s where it becomes a little tight.” A couple of key returners from last year include junior outfielder Johnny Field, junior utility player Brandon Dixon and junior starting pitchers Konner Wade and James Farris. Field led the Wildcats with a .370 batting average and scored 72 runs in 2012. Dixon only started in 38 of Arizona’s 65 games but came up big in the top of the ninth inning of the championship game with a go-ahead two RBI double. Wade and Farris were the number two and three starters in last year’s rotation and finished the season with an overall record of 18-6. “It’s a great group of guys this year,” Field said. “We had to replace some guys, but the guys here are working hard and getting better and I think we’re going to be a scrappy group this year.” Last year’s freshman class was led by closer Mat Troupe, catcher Riley Moore and second baseman Trent Gilbert. It’s still too early to say who will emerge as a star from this year’s freshman class but the group has impressed Lopez, he said. He made it clear that freshman shortstop Kevin Newman would replace

former Pac-12 Player of the Year Alex Mejia and is on track to replace Joey Rickard, who was drafted by the Tampa Bay Rays as the leadoff hitter in the lineup. As for who will take Kurt Heyer’s spot in the starting rotation, that has yet to be decided. With senior Tyler Hale as the only pitcher on staff, other than Wade and Farris, with more than 10 career starts, Lopez recently hinted that he might lean toward a freshman to take over at the back end of the rotation. “Cody Moffett has done an exceptional job with Nathan Bannister as well,” Lopez said about the freshmen pitchers. “Those are the guys that have a chance in being a factor for us this year.” Lopez stressed the fact that last year’s national championship run was last year and that this year is a new Arizona team. He said he has learned from past experiences that character, hard work and progression are what it’s going to take to defend the national title. “We have to get better everyday,” Lopez said. “Today we have to be better than yesterday. And if you stay on track, you can see where it will take you.”

Though the home series against ASU is nearly a month away, Wildcat hockey is encouraging and incentivizing fans to get their tickets early. Until Feb. 21, the UA has a deal for tickets for the Feb. 22-23 series where if you buy two tickets, you get a third free. The second ASU home series is the end of the regular season. “We want to fill it up, we want to fill up the building,” head coach Sean Hogan said. “Hopefully we’ll be able to.” Arizona is currently suffering from a 28-game winless (not losing) streak against No. 2 ASU. Prices for the ASU games are higher, $17 instead of $15 for center ice tickets, $12 instead of $10 for corner tickets, $10 instead of $8 for tickets on the end and $10 instead of $5 for student priority. The last time Arizona played its rival, attendance was about 3,000. The last sell out was likely Feb. 2, 2008, when 6,500 came out for the first capacity crowd in over eight years. “I really hope there’s 4,000 or 5,000 people because we definitely play a lot more into the games when there is more people,” senior forward Brian Slugocki said. “Hopefully we can get as many people in there as possible, because it would be a great way to send us seniors out.”

away from home. Displaced partly by the Tucson Gem and Mineral Show and partly because Tucson doesn’t have a regular ice rink, the Wildcats will practice away from the confines of the Tucson Convention Center for three weeks. “We definitely have a tougher road than most guys, in terms of we’re not going to practice as much as we would like,” Hogan said. “We have to go on the road for long, extended periods, guys miss school, but if you want to make the national tournament, that’s things we have to do.” On Monday, the team had off-ice workouts at Jimenez Practice Facility on Monday, and will take today off. Practice resumes Wednesday in Chandler, Ariz., then Thursday in Tempe, with play at ASU on Friday and Saturday. Next week, the Wildcats travel to North Dakota for a game at Williston State on Thursday, followed by a two game series at No. 3 Minot State.

Murmes/Slugocki top the charts

Junior forward Andrew Murmes is second in the country in game-winning goals and Slugocki is second in power play goals. Murmes, who has 15 goals and 28 assists, has six game winning goals. Slugocki, who has 23 goals and 20 assists, has 11 power play goals.

Kevin Parrom will have plenty of warnings to tell to the freshmen. At least Arizona has that luxury and it’s something Miller sees as a real strength. “It’s one of the things we like about our team is that we do blend experienced guys with these freshmen and hopefully that takes us where we want to go,” he said. However, things are getting a little tougher for the Wildcats’ dream of winning the Pac-12 title. With Oregon continuing to win, they now hold a two-game lead on Arizona as well as the tiebreaker. “We’re 17-2, we’re happy where we are right now,” freshman Kaleb Tarczewski said. “We’re a great team. We obviously have a lot to improve on, but that comes with time. We’re just working hard every day and honoring the process.” Tarczewski, Jerrett and fellow freshman Brandon Ashley will need to quickly learn what it’s like to play in Seattle if the UA wants to avoid another loss. Yes, Washington is slumping with three straight losses. But, as the law of parity in college basketball states, any road conference game can be tough. Fortunately, the competitiveness in the Pac-12 comes from a strong distribution of talent, not a complete lack of it like last year. — Kyle Johnson is a journalism junior.

Tapering not enough for swim to overcome Cal, Stanford EVAN ROSENFELD Arizona Daily Wildcat

Arizona’s swimmers have been training harder than ever, or “tapering,” so that they can swim faster as the Pac-12 and NCAA championships near. This tactic provides swimmers with a gradual reduction of workload during a period immediately prior to a major competition. It means that the Wildcats are so focused on the championship meets that dual meets, like those that took place against ranked conference opponents over the weekend, will get away from them. Last weekend’s meet against Cal and Stanford ended in disappointment, as only the women were able to defeat the Golden Bears. Saturday brought no redemption, as both teams fell to Stanford. “I think our effort was there,” senior Nimrod

No. 3 Cal compiling an overall score of 168.5112.5. Geer placed first in 100 and 200y freestyle events on Friday with times of 48.21 and 1:46.86 respectively. She continued her performance on Saturday, winning the 100y freestyle (48.56) while subsequently contributing to the first place 200y medley relay team. Brandon continued to impress, compiling four first-place finishes. On Friday, she won the 500 and 1000y freestyle events with times of 4:50.57 and 9:55.51 respectively and followed up Saturday with wins in both races (4:49.87 and 9:53.53 respectively). “Overall, I think we did a really good job coming together as a team,” junior Shannyn Hultin said. “Being really passionate and motivated will set us up really well for the championship stretch. We still need to sharpen up on details, but that will come in with our tapers. I think we are in a good spot.”

the 100y backstroke, compiling a time of 47.93. “I thought we swam well for where we are at in terms of our workload,” head coach Eric Hansen said. “Our kids were tired, but we made a conscious decision to train them hard and have them swim through this meet in hopes that they taper for championship competition,” he continued. “I’m really proud of how they responded. I think it’s important that we get used to racing hard when we don’t feel great so that when we do feel great, we will be better than we have ever been. That’s our philosophy and it will be fun to watch it all go down in March.” Meanwhile, junior Margo Geer and sophomore Bonnie Brandon led the women to victory on Friday against

Shapira Bar-Or said. “People were obviously tired from training since we have been working really hard. “In swimming, when you train hard it doesn’t [immediately] pay off; it pays off when you don’t train much and you taper, so in two months, we are going to see when we race what we are really capable of, and I think we are capable of a lot. We have a lot of passion, and that is what we need.” Bar-Or performed well this weekend, and along with juniors Giles Smith, Mitchell Friedemann and Matt Barber, led the men to a first-place finish in the 400-yard freestyle relay. Smith subsequently went on to place first in the 50y freestyle event with a time of 20.28 and Friedemann won

will experience diminished athletic performance from alcohol abuse. Even a few drinks can overturn the intention of your hard workouts, reducing your endurance and compromising your mental strategies. Consuming five or more alcoholic beverages in one night can affect brain and body activities for up to three days. That party you attend on Saturday can affect your game on Tuesday. Here’s why: Alcohol significantly reduces Humane Growth Hormone and testosterone, which are essential in building and repairing muscles. ATP, our primary energy source necessary for efficient muscle contraction, is also lowered. The body treats alcohol as a fat and it disrupts the Krebs cycle – leading to body fat accumulation. Alcohol also impairs protein synthesis – a lot – by blocking absorption of important nutrients and contributing to dehydration. Alcohol also interferes with lactic acid breakdown and can result in increased soreness after exercise. Regular alcohol consumption lowers immune function, increases swelling upon injury, and contributes to delayed healing. Alcohol reduces your ability for learning and remembering new strategies and plays. Combining that with decreased hormone levels and poor recovery due to disturbance of REM sleep, athletes can expect poorer agility, reaction time, and stamina. Athletes who drink alcohol have an increased risk of injury. Studies by the American Athletic Institute (AAI) reveal that drinking to intoxication can negate as much as 14 days of training effect. The residual effect of an alcoholic hangover alone decreases athletic performance by 11.4%. So, if you are an athlete who is determined to drink, drink moderately and take multi-vitamins daily. Match your alcohol intake with at least the same amount of water and drink at least 32 ounces of water before sleeping. Finally, if competition is important to you, you’ll likely find inspiration in this quote, “Remember when you are partying, that somewhere, someone is training... and when you meet them, they will beat you.”

On Thanksgiving Day, 1899, UA played its first intercollegiate game.

ellen needs ERICA

UA student launches YouTube campaign to charm talk show host

ALYSSA DEMEMBER Arizona Daily Wildcat

rica Barstein’s dream is finally coming true — well, almost. On Feb. 21, Barstein, a television, film and production major, will be an audience member on “The Ellen DeGeneres Show.” Since Barstein was a little girl, she’s wanted one thing: to work for Ellen. Barstein has been uploading videos to her YouTube account every day since Jan. 16 and said she will continue to upload videos until she sees Ellen, trying to catch the attention of the iconic and comical talk show host. Her campaign, “EllenNeedsErica,” has been gaining popularity on Twitter (#EllenNeedsErica) and her Facebook page has generated more than 50,000 views. Every day Barstein sends her videos directly to Ellen. “Just being with her and being on this show is honestly a dream,” Barstein said. For four years, Barstein has been trying to get tickets to the show and during winter break, she finally got the news she had been anxiously waiting to hear. “[Ellen] inspires me to be a better person,” Barstein said.

ERICA BARSTEIN, a UA student studying television, film and production, launched a YouTube campaign earlier this month. Barstein hoped to get the attention of talk show host and comedian Ellen DeGeneres using the hashtag #EllenNeedsErica.

Since the very first episode of “The Ellen DeGeneres Show” in 2003, Barstein said she would come home from school every day and sit down to watch Ellen. Then, she started making videos for fun, mimicking Ellen’s style, jokes and comedy routines. “She will do anything to make

you smile,” said UA senior Annie McGlothlin, a close friend of Barstein’s. Whenever she is sad, McGlothlin said, Barstein sends videos of herself singing Justin Bieber songs. “You can’t help but laugh and smile, no matter what.” Barstein simply stands out in a crowd, an attribute she hopes

will benefit her at The Ellen DeGeneres Show taping next month. “You can’t help but notice her in a room,” said Hailey Schellin, a good friend of Barstein’s. Schellin said Barstein is a genuinely kind and caring person and is the perfect fit for a job with Ellen.

She comes up with improvisational skits and has even done one for Kappa Kappa Gamma’s recruitment for three years in a row, McGlothlin said. Barstein impersonates Ellen, interviewing “celebrities” on the red carpet, an act that has everyone cracking up year after year. “Ellen to me is the funniest one,” Barstein said. “She’s so caring. Jay Leno and all those people are great, but everyone loves Ellen.” Barstein said she would be anything from a janitor to a writer for the show but wants to be in the atmosphere above all. “I will be her makeup artist. I will do anything,” Barstein said. Barstein said that above all else, she would love to do funny skits in public, as well as something behind the scenes on the production side. Barstein’s YouTube videos involve all sorts of courageous hijinks in public, using a fart machine in a bookstore, or approaching random people in public and saying lyrics from various songs, a skit frequently shown on Ellen’s show. “She’ll do anything for a laugh,” McGlothlin said.

‘DmC’ reboots the franchise the right way JASON KRELL Arizona Daily Wildcat

“DmC: Devil May Cry,” Ninja Theory’s and Capcom’s recent reboot of their “Devil May Cry” series, had a lot of expectations to meet after drastically changing the look and feel of protagonist Dante and the world he lives in. The game met pretty much every expectation. After the game was announced and an updated character design of Dante showed that his signature white hair and thick build were replaced with more realistic looks, Ninja Theory and Capcom received nothing but ire from fans. People raged about the changes for every reason imaginable, but it seems all of their arguments evaporated once the game was released. “DmC” is a good game despite all the changes. Now, I never played the original series, so I can’t say whether or not “DmC” did right by it, but the consensus seems to indicate that it did. The game received scores in the high 80s from aggregate sites like Metacritic and GameRankings. As for my take on the game, it is a solid title worth your time — assuming you’re a fan of combo-heavy action/adventure games.

Do your banking between classes.

The fighting is hands down the best aspect of the game, which is good since there’s so much of it. Throughout the game, Dante acquires new weapons which are usually either angelic or demonic, but each has a relatively different feel to it. Being able to switch between the eight weapons smoothly, by holding the left and right triggers and cycling through options on the d-pad, makes combat flow flawlessly with some practice. Upgrades are handed out generously, and in a change of pace when compared to other games in the same genre, no upgrade is permanent. Visually, the fighting is beautiful and badass at the same time, and the ranking system for combos provides an incentive to vary attacks, keeping gameplay from getting stale. The basic enemies, at least on the default setting, are rarely tough, but that’s not necessarily a problem. On the other hand, damaging some enemies requires specific weapons and can get a bit formulaic, but never to the point of excess. Besides, by the last few missions, the game throws a couple of really nasty enemies at you that bump the challenge level back up a bit.

Bosses were relatively satisfying to go up against at the beginning of every fight but the challenge ends once the player picks up on the secret to winning. Each boss has its own strategy and its never hidden that well. As a result, the fights can drag on occasionally, but there aren’t so many as to ruin the game. The platforming is never that complex but the presentation is so well done that it doesn’t matter. Almost all of the game takes place in the parallel dimension of Limbo and the demons Dante faces can warp the landscape at will. This leads to a constantly shifting world that feels dynamic, even when it’s not. The changes are scripted but happen at such precise times that they seem like a surprise more often than not. More surprising than anything, though, is the story. While the plot is nothing special — Dante fighting a demon king who killed his mother and imprisoned his father, his brother and a love interest — the characters are more developed than those in other games. There’s a lot of swearing in the dialogue, but it pops and feels honest. Everyone’s delivery is spot on, and the character development, or lack thereof, is apparent and satisfying in every case.
