Medical pot may make ballot Grads

to draft bill of rights By Tim McDonnell ARIZONA DAILY WILDCAT The graduate student government began efforts to construct a graduate student bill of rights at its meeting Wednesday night at the urgent behest of the group’s president. Graduate and Professional Student Council president David Talenfeld, a second-year law student, said that the need for a bill of rights is pressing and should become a primary focus for the group in coming weeks. “I think we need to get this done immediately,” he said. A bill of rights for graduate students would not be an entirely new concept, said GPSC Representative Jim Collins, a non-degree-seeking graduate student. Former sessions of GPSC have put such bills into place in the past. The matter at hand now, Collins said, is to revive the old document and rework it to meet the current needs of graduate students. President Robert Shelton has offered an “unprecedented” level of support for such a bill, and it is up to GPSC to“hold his feet to the fire” on the issue, Talenfeld said. The council approved a movement to delegate the responsibility of forming a draft to its policy subcommittee, which will have two weeks to do so before presenting the draft to Shelton at a meeting scheduled for Oct. 13. While it remains unclear what the exact content of the new bill would be, Representative Lucy Blaney, a Spanish and Portuguese doctoral student, said she was uncertain whether Shelton and GPSC were on the same page about the purpose of the bill. Comments from the president have led some GPSC representatives to believe that his perception of the bill-writing committee is that

Supporters of medicinal marijuana work to get proposition on 2010 ballot By Austin Counts ARIZONA DAILY WILDCAT Marijuana reform advocates say patients in need of herbal pain medication are closer to relief, as efforts increase in Arizona to turn out support for a proposition in favor of the legalization of medical marijuana. To date, The Arizona Medical Marijuana Policy Project says it has collected more than 130,000 voters’ signatures — approximately 23,000 short of the 153,000 voter signatures required to get the proposition onto the November 2010 ballot. “There are thousands of sick Arizonans who need medical marijuana

for pain relief,” said Andrew Myers, campaign manager for the project. “Currently, they have two choices: continue to suffer or go to the criminal market to purchase illegal marijuana. We hope to change that.” The proposition aims to allow Arizonans with qualifying ailments to receive limited amounts of medical marijuana from dispensaries regulated by the state. The Arizona Department of Health Services would issue permits to these patients, granting them the choice between herbal and pharmaceutical medication. If the proposal makes the 2010 ballot and passes, the law will protect

the rights of doctors to prescribe medical marijuana to patients who suffer from painful diseases from state and federal prosecution. Mary MacKenzie, Treasurer for AZ-4-National Organization for the Reform of Marijuana Laws, advocates ending medical marijuana prohibition so that qualifying patients can receive the treatment they deserve. “We have a lot of patients in need in Arizona and we don’t need doctors going to jail for doing their job,” said MacKenzie. However, opponents to the proposition believe that it is nothing more than a step toward the decriminalization — and eventually legalization —

of recreational marijuana use. Myers disagrees with this sentiment due to the proposition’s stance on upholding restrictions on such things as the public use of marijuana. “The legalization of medical marijuana is our priority, not the legalization for recreational use,” Myers said. “If (legalization of marijuana for personal use) was going to happen, it would have passed already.” Bill Godfrey, a medical marijuana user who recently lost part of his foot due to diabetes, uses the drug as prescribed by his California doctor. Godfrey supports Arizona tak-

From left, freshman Lizzie Graham, sophomore Lauren Slyker and freshman Chula Robertson leave their home in the temporary housing at the Coconino Residence Hall to attend the War of the Roses greek olympics held on the Mall on Thursday afternoon.

There are still 120 students living in temporary dormitory housing, and Residence Life officials say they don’t expect the situation to improve by next year. Due to lack of space at the beginning of the semester, Residence Life boarded students with resident assistants and converted both study rooms and the Alpha Chi Omega sorority house into temporary housing. Nearly 300 students were placed in alternate housing. Jim Van Arsdel, director of Residence Life and University Housing, said his team has been chipping away at the number by placing some students in permanent housing, but that it’s been a slow process. “We have made significant progress,” Van Arsdel said. “The reason why we haven’t been able to move more quickly is that more people have not been moving out — so I guess that is the good news in all of this.” Faith Flynn, an undecided freshman, said she actually prefers living in her temporary housing assignment to moving midway through the semester. “I would actually rather stay here for the rest of the year rather than

OSLO, Norway — American rap artist and actor Will Smith and his wife, actress Jada Pinkett Smith, will cohost this year’s Nobel Peace Prize Concert in Oslo, organizers said Wednesday. The Dec. 11 show — a day after the award ceremony — Will Smith will feature performances by Wyclef Jean, Toby Keith, Donna Summer, Puerto Rican singer Luis Fonsi as well as Amadou & Mariam, a blues and jazz duet from Mali. “The opportunity to recognize the laureate’s contributions to the world peace movement will be an awe-inspiring experience,” the Smiths said in a joint statement. “We are both humbled and honored to take part in the Nobel Peace Prize Concert this year.” The winner of the 2009 Nobel Peace Prize will be announced in Oslo on Oct. 9. The award is always handed out Dec. 10, the anniversary of prize founder Alfred Nobel’s death in 1896. “We’re excited to have Will Smith and Jada Pinkett Smith join us as hosts for the Nobel Peace Prize Concert,” said Geir Lundestad, secretary of the Norwegian Nobel Committee. “Together they’ve had a global impact on the arts and philanthropy and will be excellent ambassadors for peace.” Smith, 41, rose to fame in the 1980s as a rapper under the name The Fresh Prince and as the star of a popular television comedy show. His many films include “Men in Black” and “Independence Day.” His wife, 38, is an actress, model and singersongwriter. Her film career has included roles in the “The Nutty Professor,” ‘’Ali” and “The Matrix Reloaded.”

ASUA’s stances fuzzy on chalk, guns By Shannon Maule and Shain Bergan ARIZONA DAILY WILDCAT By Shannon Maule and Shain Bergan The student government passed resolutions concerning the recent student chalk protests and a sensitive state gun bill during Wednesday’s weekly meeting. However, the Associated Students of the University of Arizona’s official stance on both issues remains unclear. The Student Senate’s Freedom of Speech Resolution states ASUA will advocate on behalf of students who choose to exercise their freedom of speech. The resolution comes in the wake of two UA students being detained and cited on charges of criminal damage after using chalk to draw protest signs on university property. Earlier this week, President Robert Shelton asked UAPD to drop the charges and requested that the students be referred instead to the Dean of Students Office. The resolution is in direct response to the chalking incidents, said Emily Fritze, executive vice president of ASUA. ASUA is not taking an official stance on the situation because the organization does not want to overstep its boundaries with the University of Arizona Police Department and the Dean of Students Office, said Chris Nagata, ASUA president. “ASUA doesn’t have any business telling UAPD how to adjudicate cases,” he

said.“It is an unfortunate incident.” While Fritze said she is glad UAPD will drop charges against the students, ASUA will “wait and see” what punishments are levied against the accused before taking any further action, Fritze said. “We understand the university perspective, but we also understand the student perspective,”she said. ASUA’s Gun Policy Resolution stressed the student government’s awareness of the safety issues that may arise now that weapons are potentially closer to campus. An Arizona state bill that has passed through the legislature will allow firearms to be stored securely in parked cars. ASUA has avoided taking an official stance on the issue in the past several weeks, and now “do not feel the need to speak against it because it would not have a huge effect,”Fritze said. The resolution likewise does not give an official student government stance, but cautions against the progression of the law to potentially“open the door”to weapons on campus, she added. The concern over such a possibility is not based on anything ASUA has heard, but rather on research pertaining to Arizona’s current gun laws, Fritze said. Taking an official stance on the bill itself is unnecessary at this point, Nagata said. “We recognize that the bill has been passed by the State,” he said. “We’re just considering the issues of safety.”

Ariz. marijuana law tried in 1996

ing the same measures that California took in 1996 to legalize medical marijuana. “When I take painkillers, they put me to sleep for 16 hours or make me so groggy I can’t remember to take my insulin,” said Godfrey. “Medical marijuana doesn’t do that, it just relieves the pain and relaxes me.” This is not the first time legalization of medical marijuana has been placed on the Arizona ballot. In 1996, Arizona voters passed Proposition 200, which granted the use of medical marijuana to qualifying patients while creating stiffer laws against personal use. This proposition was later overturned by the Arizona Legislature because it conflicted with federal laws.

possible rate. Van Arsdel said the two new dorms going up near Sixth Street would take a lot of the weight off of Residence Life’s shoulders if they were completed and available this year, but that is not going to be the case. Together, the new halls will house 1,088 students. However, they won’t open until the fall of 2011. “By the time they are done, I expect that our enrollment will have gone up, so we will be facing the same situation,” Van Arsdel said.

Even with the budget issues the UA faces, it remains a popular school and will continue to see its enrollment increase each year, he said. Residence Life expects more than 200 students to be without housing for fall 2010, but Flynn said the situation is not all bleak. “It’s really not as bad as everyone is making it out to be,” said Flynn. “I mean, it wasn’t my number one choice, but I thought it would turn out fine and it totally did.”

‘Bridgification’ making progress

it will serve more as an informationgathering body rather than a policydrafting committee.

In February 2009, Attorney General Eric Holder announced that the federal government would no longer raid medical marijuana dispensaries as long as they were in accordance with state law. This is good news for patients who are eligible for medical marijuana but cannot receive the medication due to conflicting state and federal laws. As the deadline for gathering 153,000 voters’ signatures by July 2010 approaches, Myers said he will, with the help of 450 petitioners, continue to gather signatures from Arizona voters. “We are very confident that this will work for patients, the community and even law enforcement,” said Myers.

New dorms won’t solve crowding

dealing with moving, a new roommate and a new location on campus,” Flynn said. “I actually really like where I live.” Residence Life said it expects the same housing deficit for next year, with the combined spike in enrollment and thinning of resources, so it is trying to make the situation as appealing and fair as possible. Residence Life officials said the temporary housing rooms are actually larger than typical dorm rooms and students are charged the lowest

University of Arizona Senator James Brooks, a pre-business sophomore, attended the GPSC meeting to show support for the “bridgification” movement between the two student government organizations. Officials say the bridgification has made slow but steady progress since its inception earlier this semester. Brooks will attend all future GPSC meetings and said he hopes to address some issues that affect both undergraduate and graduate students.

“We’re all students,” he said. Talenfeld also laid out broader goals for the council this semester, including protecting teaching assistant positions and minimizing further budget cuts. The council addressed the need to establish workload caps for graduate students and agreed to conduct workload surveys to assess the current situation. To effect both these changes, graduate students will need to work closely with academic administrators, he said.

EDITORIAL Week highlights freedom to read

The Wildcat editorial board praises Banned Book Week “I think we ought to read only the kinds of books that wound and stab us … We need the books that affect us like a disaster, that grieve us deeply, like the death of someone we loved more than ourselves, like being banished into forests far from everyone, like a suicide. A book must be the axe for the frozen sea inside us.” — Franz Kafka, 1904


oinciding perfectly with the UA’s own free speech chalk controversy, Sept. 26 through Oct. 3rd is Banned Books Week. Promoted by the American Library Association, organizers hope this week will encourage the freedom to read and stress the importance of the First Amendment. Sure, cynics could argue the calendar event exists to drive traffic to libraries and customers to their local Borders display table, but the Daily Wildcat supports any event that promotes the free exchange of ideas, however unpopular. Call us misty-eyed idealists, but we don’t like censorship. Fortunately, we live in a country where adults are free to seek out whatever reading material they choose. The library association’s Web site says that, frequently, challenges to books are used to shield children and teens from difficult ideas and information. But to restrict information accomplishes nothing. Children will grow into adults who will be exposed to more than just foul language. Literature can and will open readers up to reality and prepare them for real-world brutalities. It’s important to spread the message that a book like “The Catcher in the Rye” is more than the sum of its swear words. On the ALA’s Web site, the association explains that while the books highlighted during Banned Books Week were targeted for censorship,“fortunately, while some books were banned or restricted, in a majority of cases the books were not banned.” Interestingly enough, banned and challenged books tend to be highly sought-after among readers. In 2008, 513 book challenges were reported to the Office for Intellectual Freedom, and one of the most popular challenges was New York Times bestseller “The Kite Runner” by Khaled Hosseini. In other countries, book banning is more serious than in elementary school libraries. Oppressive regimes often seek to destroy political texts and fiction that does not promote the nationalism of those in power. Russian writer Leo Tolstoy’s book on Christianity and pacifism, “The Kingdom of God is Within You,” was banned in his native country for being anti-establishment. Banned Books Week is a good time to be in the United States: We can read, write, say and chalk whatever the hell we want. And this is where the reader expects the Daily Wildcat to say,“Go out and read a banned book!” Well, yes, by all means do that. But we’re college students, let’s up the ante a little bit. Instead of going home and cracking open a copy of “The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn,” we say go out and read a book you think maybe should be banned. Of course, you’d never ban a book, especially after reading this editorial, but let’s just say, if you had to ban one piece of repulsive, abhorrent or subversive literature, what would it be? Read that. Go out and find a book that will make you mad. You’ll be a better person for it. In the words of oft-banned poet and essayist Ralph Waldo Emerson,“Every burned book enlightens the world.” — Editorials are determined by the Daily Wildcat opinions board and written by one of its members.

MAILBAG Free speech does not include defacing public property

If your idea of expressing free speech involves crushing colored chalk into the sides of school buildings, you have another coming. Anytime free speech constitutes a clean-up process that involves both labor and an expenditure of funds, it is clearly vandalism. Tuesday’s Daily Wildcat front-page photo is not showing two girls expressing their freedom of speech; it shows incriminating evidence that both of these girls are guilty of vandalism. My advice to those wishing to express their free speech with chalk is to find other avenues to do so. Many others and myself feel this chalk graffiti is an unaesthetic nuisance on what should be a pristinely beautiful campus. There is a fine line between freedom of speech and vandalism, and it is frustrating that both the student body and members of the university’s administration are naïve to that fact. Lastly, if one is allowed to chalk school buildings, shouldn’t they also be allowed to graffiti the White House in protest? Go ahead and try that one. All those that are defacing our school’s buildings with chalk should be prosecuted to the full extent of the law. Brad Bus Environmental science senior

Students should protest without breaking the law

Has the Daily Wildcat ’s readership spent too much time in public schools being taught about how “the man”

and the police are out to get them, or are they trying desperately to recreate the spirit of their forefathers and start something along the lines of the deviant violence at the 1968 Democratic National Convention? I am extremely disappointed that not only would my fellow students react in such a way to police officers merely doing their jobs, but I’m even more disappointed that the Daily Wildcat would add fuel to the fire. Laws have purposes. Without them, our society would fall apart. Laws, as annoying as they may be to some, are the very foundation of society itself. When you start ignoring simple laws against vandalism, where does it end? Are you going to start claiming that breaking windows or setting a building on fire is free speech? As anyone who knows constitutional law will tell you, free speech is not absolute. None of the rights established in the Bill of Rights are absolute. Unfortunately, it seems that some students are predisposed to overreaction at the slightest provocation, which doesn’t bode well for them in the real world. I’m reminded of the people who bristle at traffic fines and claim police officers are overreaching, but then are the first to claim the police aren’t doing their jobs quickly enough when a crime is committed against them. That kind of attitude gets you nowhere in the real world, folks. There is a right way and a wrong way to protest something. That’s why cities and municipalities all over the country require you to get permits for protests and other civil actions. It’s to keep

things civil. When you start ignoring the law just because it doesn’t fit your misguided definition of what free speech is, then civility goes out the window. As goes civility, so goes society, and we’re all university students. We’re supposed to be civilized. How about you all act like it? Is it really so hard to protest something legally? Kevin Rand Wos Political science junior

Casual sex has not completely replaced relationships

This is a response to Tiffany Kimmell’s “Sex with no strings attached: the new ‘relationship’” (Sept. 25, 2009) article. Random hook-ups have clearly become more common, yes. However, if you think that they have become some sort of substitution or replacement for relationships (in the minds of college students or anyone else for that matter), you are wrong. Our slightly superficial constituency here may occasionally suggest such a trend, but there is no reason whatsoever to believe that this is actually what any type of majority would think. Surely the men who weren’t interested in relationships in the past are equally uninterested now, just as the rest of us are equally interested in finding a meaningful relationship … even if we have a “casual hookup” every now and then along the way. By the way, the example of the sociology study bares no relevance to the article whatsoever. Brandon Singer Biology sophomore

The not-so-loaded gun: a retrospective

inally. The heist that I have been planning with my crew of hilariously quirky thieves can finally take place now that the Arizona Legislature has passed Arizona Revised Statute 12-781, which is a gun law that restricts public employers and property owners from enforcing a policy prohibiting the transportation and storage of firearms in a private vehicle, according to a recent Daily Wildcat report. My cronies’ only obstacle to completion had been those dastardly security check points posted all over campus, where UA security would prevent us from bringing a small, security-system-jamming ElectroMagnetic Pulse (cleverly disguised as a legally owned handgun within a locked container) onto campus. With that hurdle out of the way, the secret collection of priceless Faberge eggs in the secret compartment under President Shelton’s desk will be ours. Admittedly, the previous paragraphs were rife with absurdity, but it was not more absurd than the amount of attention and misinformation that has plagued the university

for the past two weeks, all dealing with the prickly pear of recently passed legislation. Now that the dust has cleared, some chests have been sufficiently beaten and the truth has been Remy effectively mired in mud, it Albillar seems like an appropriate time to take a retrospective columnist look at the issue. A.R.S. 12-781, the piece of Arizona legislation at the heart of this cluster of nonsense, says very little about college campuses. It’s purpose is to restrict employers from passing or upholding policies that prohibit employees from storing guns in their car in the employer’s parking lot. This forced the Arizona Board of Regents’ hands in upholding Policies 5-303 (Prohibited Conduct) and 5-308 (Student Code of Conduct), which they have now edited in order to avoid conflict with A.R.S. 12-781. Simple, right? No conspiracy to eventually move the UA down the slippery slope toward a gun-wielding population where the only law is the one you make with your revolver and the man who survives is the man with the fastest draw. Instead, the law is more oriented toward those who can and do legally carry firearms

and would be otherwise inconvenienced if they couldn’t transport those firearms with them to and from their house, work and other destinations. A rancher carries a rifle and a permit, which he uses at work. He works across town from his home , and his child’s school lies somewhere in between. Can he drop his kids off at school, get to work on time, pick them up, and get home in two trips? Now he can! Thanks, A.R.S. 12-781! This all seems both straightforward and innocuous, but paranoia and misinformation are a powerful force for making issues out of the irrelevant. The main argument against the policy change deals with issues of safety and an increased presence of guns on campus. But if we’re being practical about this, how does a law allowing a concealed, secured, legal weapon to be stored in a parked vehicle impact the safety of the average UA student? Are people still prohibited from carrying a gun on campus? Yes. Are people still prohibited from having a gun out of secured vehicle? Yes. Do criminals still ignore the law in order to commit crime without much consideration for the rights and safety of others? Yes. More saddening than impractical

arguments against the policy change was the fervor with which the fear mongering around the policy was spread without check on campus. Nothing is more indicative of the relative irrelevance of this policy change than ASUA’s inability to effectively generate a mass consensus from the student body and take a strong stance against the policy, minus the official statement which ranked rhetorically just below “Guns are bad, mmmkay?” In short, don’t let hype and fear control your interpretation of what’s going on with this issue. Don’t take my word for it, either. As far as you know, I’m getting a secret stipend from the big bad gun manufacturers in exchange for supporting the weakening of gun control and the corrosion of Arizona schools to martial law. Do your research, figure out the truth for yourself, and don’t forget to secure and hide your firearm before you park your car on campus. — Remy Albillar is a sophomore majoring in English.

Phi Gamma Delta brother helps intoxicated women get home safely

UAPD officers were dispatched to the Alpha Delta Pi sorority house at 1443 E. First St. in reference to an intoxicated woman in the residence. Upon arrival, officers observed a woman lying inside the front doorway. She appeared to be intoxicated and had vomited on the carpet. Officers attempted to move her but she was unable to stand up or balance herself. The woman then crawled out onto the front porch and began to vomit again. Tucson Fire Department officers arrived to evaluate the woman’s condition. Officers then spoke to the woman’s friend, who told police that the two had been drinking at Phi Gamma Delta fraternity house and were driven home by an unidentified man. The man helped the woman bring her friend into the house and told them both not to mention where they had been drinking that evening. Officers then spoke with another Alpha Delta Pi resident, who told them that she had been walking upstairs when she heard a woman crying downstairs. She went downstairs to see what was going on and saw the man and the two women standing in the doorway. According to the resident, the man claimed to have only been there to help and immediately left the residence. She then called 911 to report the incident. The intoxicated woman was transported to University Medical Center where her condition was monitored. Both she and her friend were cited on charges of minor in possession and were released.

Man denies pants, pot are his

UAPD officers responded to the Coronado Residence Hall on Sept. 25 at 1:52 a.m. in reference to an unidentified man trying to use a fake ID to gain access to the dorm. Upon arrival, officers met with a resident assistant in the lobby area. The RA told police that a man had tried to get into the dorm earlier that evening but was told to leave because he was unable to provide any identification. The man later returned with a friend, who is a resident of the dorm, and attempted to use his friend’s ID card to gain access. As police were speaking to the RA, a man came into the lobby. The RA pointed the man out to police and identified him as the man who had tried using the fake ID. Officers made contact with the man and noticed that he had bloodshot eyes and the strong odor of intoxicants coming from his mouth as he spoke. Police asked the man for identification and he responded that he did not have any. He gave officers a name and a records check revealed an outstanding warrant issued by UAPD for trespassing. When police searched the man, they discovered a bag of marijuana in his pants pocket. The man claimed that neither the pants nor the marijuana were his. He told police that he had been asleep in his friend’s room when his friend had returned and asked him to leave. He put on the first pair of pants he found and left the room. After further questioning, the man admitted that both the pants and the bag of marijuana were his. The man was cited on charges of minor in possession, possession of marijuana, trespassing and giving false information to a law enforcement officer. He was transported to Pima County Jail where he was booked on the charges. The bag of marijuana was placed into evidence.

Intoxicated woman sleeps on floor at La Paz dorm

UAPD officers were dispatched to the Colonia de la Paz Residence Hall on Sept. 25 at 2:10 a.m. in reference to a woman who had passed out on the third floor. Upon arrival, officers met with TFD officers in the lobby and went to the third floor to find the woman. They made contact with the woman and identified her using her New York driver’s license. TFD officers assessed the woman’s condition and deemed her too intoxicated to be released. Officers questioned the woman who told them that she was just trying to get into her room. She said this as she pointed at the door she was sitting in front of. An RA on scene told police that the room in question belonged to two men. The RA then checked the residence log and discovered that the woman did not live at Colonia de la Paz. Officers asked the woman where she lived and she responded that she lived at the Arizona-Sonora Residence Hall. TFD transported the woman to UMC where she was cited on charges of minor in possession and eventually released. The incident was referred to the Dean of Students office.

join the club

Not that kind of swingers By Yael Schusterman Arizona Daily Wildcat In the words of Duke Ellington, “It don’t mean a thing if it ain’t got that swing.” The Arizona Swing Cats — the UA’s swing dance club — agree, and show it every Tuesday at 7 p.m. in the Ina E. Gittings building, room 16. The Lindy Hop — a 1940s classic style of swing dance — is the most popular and well-known style, said club President Aelynn Heinrichs, a media arts junior. Heinrichs said the group was formed in the ‘90s by a group of swing dancers who wanted a place to dance and teach other people the art. “There are no dance majors in our group,” she said. “I think it’s because they know it’s a completely different style from ballet and other forms of dance, you can really just throw your own style into it.” Heinrichs started coming to Swing Cats as a freshman with her friends and, by dancing with them on weekends, her friendships grew stronger, she said. As a club, Swing Cats has had trouble following university regulations, including the need to have a faculty member present and the hunt for a dance-appropriate room. “The hardest part is reserving a room,” she said. The club is far from exclusive, Heinrichs said, and almost everyone comes to meetings without a dance partner. “We make everyone change partners since it’s a social dance, which improves both dancing and people’s social skills,” she said. Jazz dance professor Susan Quinn was the club’s advisor for two of the 18 years she has been teaching at the UA, and said she “loved the time that she spent with them.” The current advisor for the club is professor Anna Vida, who teaches media arts. Jennifer Kirsch, an art history senior and club treasurer, has been active in Swing Cats for the past three years. She said an average of 30 people attend each class. The meeting time is generally divided between dance lessons and an “open dancing” session with 1940s music. “It is a good way to meet people and have fun,” Kirsch said. Other dances range from the fast Charleston to Balboa and Blues, in which the music slows

Turn-ing it up

Senior quietly becomes top-10 Arizona receiver By Bobby Stover Arizona Daily Wildcat

Mike Christy/Arizona Daily Wildcat

Senior wide receiver Terrell Turner gains the extra yardage after making a catch in Arizona’s 34-17 victory over NAU on Sept. 12 at Arizona Stadium. Turner has flown under the radar in making Arizona’s top-10 all-time receptions list.

For the past two seasons, Arizona wide receiver Terrell Turner has tried to escape two shadows: his defenders’ and that of former teammate Mike Thomas. While the senior makes dodging defenders look easy, his problem is shaking Thomas. The former Arizona receiver happened to be one of the most prolific receivers in Wildcat history — in fact, he finished his career atop the Pacific 10 Conference’s receptions list with 259 catches — forcing Turner to accept being a secondary receiver. Despite still finding success as Arizona’s second receiving option — catching 93 balls for 1153 yards — the senior has looked forward to his opportunity to become the team’s primary receiver. “You always want to get out of that little-brother mode,” Turner said. “You want to come into your own so everybody’s looking at what you can do and not at what somebody else has done.” So far this year, Turner has indeed stepped into the spotlight. The 6-foot-2, 190-pound receiver was not only named a co-captain of the team prior to the season, but has also made himself the team’s leading receiver with 15 receptions for 133 yards and a pair of scoring catches. These results come as no surprise to his coaches, who have seen Turner improve his skills as each year rolls around. “He’s been a very consistent player for us,”said head coach Mike Stoops.“He’s an awfully good player. He’s got great hands, and he’s a great route runner. He’s had a very good career.” If receptions are the measure of a successful career, then Turner surely is a success. With eight games left in his collegiate football career, the senior sits tied for 10th all-time in program history with 109 receptions. Due to spending the last two seasons in Thomas’ shadow, Turner’s place on the all-time leader board comes as a surprise to many, including himself. “My mom actually mentioned that (I was moving up the list) before the season,” Turner said. “But I don’t really pay attention to it much because I don’t like getting caught up in all of that. But it’s a great honor being up there with all those guys.” Being one of the most experienced receivers on the team, Turner has taken his leadership role very seriously. While his leadership style has shown

Three football players arrested

Three Arizona football players were arrested for fighting early Sunday morning near the corner of East Adams Street and North Vine Avenue. Defensive tackle Justin Washington, receiver Dewayne Peace and running back Kylan Butler were arrested. Washington told police the men were trying to protect a female friend from being“taken advantage of.” Washington and Butler were cited on charges of misdemeanor assault and released, while Peace was charged with aggravated assault and misdemeanor assault. Peace was taken into police custody and booked at the Pima County Jail. UAPD Sergeant Juan Alvarez said an officer saw Washington, Peace and Butler get out of a vehicle and confront two other men. A fight broke out and officers intervened, he said. The other two men in the fight were not arrested. Washington told an officer he, Peace and Butler saw a woman who was their friend inside a silver van with men they did not know, according to police documents obtained by the Daily Wildcat. Officers saw the three men get out of a vehicle and begin to “jump about” aggressively. The officers followed them around the corner of a building, heard yelling and observed the three men in a fight with two other men. Running to the location, the officers ordered the involved men to sit on the ground. The officer noticed blood dripping from the head of one man and the other man said he had been punched. Butler told police that earlier the men were making advances toward the woman and her friends. Washington said Peace was trying to prevent the woman from leaving with the men and punched one of the men to stop her from doing so. Peace was arrested on charges of aggravated assault due to the victims’statements. One of the men had several fractured teeth and the other had a cut on his head. All three football players were referred to the Dean of Students Office.

First-year Miller brings in stellar first class Icecats need big debut By Kevin Zimmerman Arizona Daily Wildcat

By Mike Schmitz Arizona Daily Wildcat

Two inactive players, the potential debut of as many as 13 Arizona Icecats and the pressure of the ASU-UA rivalry might not look like the recipe for success in tonight’s season opener in Tempe. When the puck drops in the Oceanside Arena at 7:30 p.m., Icecat nation will surely see what the newlook Icecats are made of. “The absence of (Jordan) Schupan and (Austin) Capobianco gives other players opportunities to step up, that’s how you have to look at it,” associate coach Dave Dougall said. “It’s their shot, time for them to make a name for themselves.” Junior forward Schupan and senior defenseman Capobianco will miss the two-game series due to pneumonia, leaving it up to a handful of the 13 first-year Icecats traveling with the team to pick up the slack. The Icecats know what they will get from the eight active returning players, but the question lies in those first-year players who have yet to take the ice. Thirteen new Icecat players debuted over the course of the season last year and head coach Leo Golembiewski expects as many as 13 to debut in the season opener tonight as well. Some of the new players are being thrown into the fire early, but OPENER, page 8

Within months of taking over the Arizona men’s basketball program, head coach Sean Miller put together a recruiting class most schools could only dream of. Five freshmen were signed by early July, filling the Wildcats’ roster that had been decimated by transfers and unsteady recruiting after the basketball team went through two interim head coaches in two seasons. “It’s about building a program that can return to dominance and do so many things that we’ve watched Arizona do for not five years but 25 years,”Miller said over the summer.“My philosophy in doing that is to think longer and bigger than just one season.” The Wildcats’ 2009 class includes guard Lamont ‘Momo’ Jones, wings Kevin Parrom and Solomon Hill, power forward Derrick Williams and center Kyryl Natyazhko. The 2009 class is not only large in number, but was ranked by as the 13th best class in Division I hoops. “Watching the players in pick-up and all that, it looks like he nailed all five of them,” said recruiting expert Josh Gershon. “To be able to bring in five guys that are going to make some kind of impact in your program — in that little amount of time — is unreal. And really, that class would be a really good class any year, but to sign it in a month or two is just unbelievable.” But with such a large crop of freshmen, Arizona will be limited in number of players and selectivity in the next few recruiting classes. Miller said he will only take players talented enough to play at Arizona as opposed to taking players based on need alone. “I definitely think the coaches have to be pretty selective and I think 2010 will be a three-man class, maybe with the third being in the spring signing period,” Gershon said, adding that the “2011 (class) will probably depend on what happens in 2010.”

Arizona men’s basketball head coach Sean Miller smiles at his April 7 introductory press conference at McKale Center. Miller recruited a fiveplayer class in a matter of months after taking over the basketball program.

Finding a big man

On a roster depleted of big men, Williams and Natyazhko’s development will be key for Arizona to have an inside presence. Gershon said Williams is already“one of the strongest players on the team,” while Natyazhko has improved dramatically throughout fall pick-up games. “The thing that sets him apart that I’m very excited about is he’s a big guy who’s also very skilled,” Miller said during a summer press conference. “He’s not someone who can’t catch, can’t make a free throw. I think you’ll find him being able to really put the ball on the floor and pass and shoot.” And Natyazhko is the biggest question mark. The center out of the IMG Academy in Bradenton, Fla., by way of Ukraine will have a shot at the starting center po-

sition come the Nov. 1, Red-Blue game. “He’s the guy that they’re really going to need,”Gershon said.“If he can be a dependable big man for them right away then that makes the team that much bigger. I imagine he’ll play a lot of that this season — they don’t have anyone proven at the center position.”

Looking ahead at top targets Ray McCallum

The Wildcats will need a true point guard following senior Nic Wise’s departure this year. McCallum, a 2010 prospect out

of Detroit, Mich., is Arizona’s main target, according to Gershon. UCLA and Arizona are the teams to beat, but McCallum’s father, University of Detroit head coach Ray McCallum Sr., is also attempting to edge his son toward his program. “He’s taking an official to UCLA this weekend and he’ll officially visit Arizona for the Red/Blue game (on Nov. 1),” Gershon said. “I’d say that 80 percent of the (Arizona) class being a success depends on either getting him or another point guard, but it’s going to be tough to get another point guard as good as he is.”

Hockey must overcome youth in first game

OPENER continued from page 7

players and coaches alike are quite confident the Icecat rookies will come out unscathed. “We have confidence in (the young players), but they have to prove it first,�Dougall said.“It’s going to be up to some of the new guys to see what it’s all about right away.� The Icecats will have their hands full with a hot ASU team that is coming off of a 13-0 slaughtering of Brigham Young University. But Golembiewski knows that in a game as emotional as this one, all records go out the window. “When you play Arizona State, you sort of throw the baby out of the bath water because nothing means anything,� Golembiewski said. There will be a lot of emotions flying around Oceanside Arena today and tomorrow, but Golembiewski and company hope to look beyond the rivalry and focus on what matters — getting the win. “Do we want to beat them? Yes,� Golembiewski said. “But we want to beat them just as badly as anyone else. We didn’t form our team 31 years ago to worry about Arizona State.� Inactive players or not, the Icecats expect big things out of first-timers Sean and Shane

MacLachlan, Scott Wilson, Chad Wade, Adam and Andrew Treptow, Nicholas Stolz and Zachary Waxenberg, among others. “We are a very well-rounded team,� said senior defenseman Zach Cherney. “We can easily run three or four lines.� That depth will be key for a team depleted by sickness and injury. While the team does have a lot of first-year Icecats, all of the players have been playing hockey for most of their lives. But is knowing how to play hockey the same as knowing how to win against an archrival on the road, not to mention being on a completely new team that is missing two of its leaders? The coaching staff can call it just another game all they want, but the players know what is at stake when they play ASU: Pride, dignity, bragging rights and, most importantly, the strong start to the season that the Icecats need to make nationals. “When we play ASU everybody shows up, no one leaves anything on the ice, and that’s how it should be every game,� said sophomore defenseman Geordy Weed.“We can thank ASU for that, because they’ll make us bring it quick, no slacking.�

Claiming leadership role next step for receiver

TURNER continued from page 7

effectiveness through example, Turner’s days behind Thomas have possibly made him into too much of a silent leader. According to outside receivers coach Dave Nichol, Turner’s only downfall comes in his lack of vocal leadership on the field. “Certain guys can talk and nobody listens, but (the young receivers) listen to him,â€? Nichol said. “They respect what he’s done for four years. I want him to be more vocal ‌ in the huddle, before a game, in the hotel, stuff like that.â€? Being named a captain this year has pushed Turner to improve his vocal leadership. He said he now

feels responsible for taking care of his teammates’ questions with everything from route running to study hall — and he’s enjoying every bit of it. “I have to be the leader for this offense, the receiving core and the whole offense as well,�Turner said. “I’ve been in those away games and experienced all the different fans, so I’m able to pass on my experience football-wise and just collegiatewise to them.� “I had big expectations for myself coming into this year and then (being named captain) really made me want to work hard, because I just want to be better for my teammates.�

Soccer upbeat despite injuries By Vincent Balistreri Arizona Daily Wildcat After a demoralizing 3-0 shutout loss to Cal Poly on Sunday, the Arizona soccer team figured that things couldn’t get any worse. But at Tuesday morning’s practice at Murphey Field, Arizona (3-6-1) may have hit rock bottom as they found out that leading goal-scorer Renae Cuellar and starting goalkeeper Devon Wharf would miss Friday’s game against Loyola Marymount and be out indefinitely with foot and knee injuries, respectively. For a team that didn’t want to begin a tough Pacific 10 Conference schedule limping, it will be doing just that ­­— literally — come next week against No. 3 UCLA, with the possibility of being without two of its top players. “These injuries certainly don’t help, but there are 319 teams that have the same issues,” said Arizona head coach Dan Tobias. “You can plan for injuries but they can come up at the worst possible times. We tell our (players) who don’t play as much, ‘As long as you keep yourself prepared, when your number is called you’ll be ready to help the team.’” Before the Wildcats even think about their first conference game against UCLA, there are several questions that need to be addressed for their upcoming game against Loyola Marymount

RECRUITS continued from page 7

on Friday. Their first order of business is to figure out how the team will replace Cuellar’s scoring; she has accounted for six of the team’s 10 goals this season. No other player has shown she can consistently take on the scoring load. Cuellar has scored a goal in each of the Wildcats’ wins this year. “It’s obviously a big blow to the team because those are two key players for us,”said midfielder Leila Amini.“I think we have enough depth to pull through as a team. This is a time for other people to step up and really show what they can do.” One of the players who must be prepared is backup goalkeeper Ashley Jett, who will have to protect the net while Wharf is injured. The sophomore played 51 minutes as a freshman, all in the Wildcats’ season finale last season in a 2-1 loss to Washington. She registered three saves and allowed one goal in that game. Finding out that she would play was a bittersweet moment for Jett. “I was really excited to find out I would play, but I’m so bummed for Devon because she’s done so well this year,” she said.“She’s had such a tough career, she’s pushed so hard to get to this point and I want her to get back because it’s her time to shine.” Tobias is confident that Jett will step in and play well for however many games Wharf misses. “She has a calm, composed, even-

keeled demeanor, so nothing seems to rattle her,” Tobias said. “I think that her quiet confidence is important at the goalkeeper position. I’m very excited for her to get an opportunity to play.”

Basketball already hot on 2010 recruiting trail

Adreian Payne

Once again, adding to the still-small big man rotation will be Miller’s priority. Payne, a 6-foot-10, 215-pound power forward is a five-star prospect from Ohio, a jewel of a recruit for Arizona to bolster its interior. “He’s pretty familiar with the Arizona coaching staff, and he’s a guy that … nationally, people didn’t expect (Arizona) to be a factor in this (recruitment) but really, right now UofA has a good of a chance as anyone,” Gershon said. “Getting a player like that is huge and obviously (Arizona) hasn’t brought in a lot of five-star big men in the past.”

Rod Odom

Miller loves versatility in his players. That’s evidenced by the Natyazhko and Williams signings, but Miller is looking to add one more. Odom, at 6-foot-8, 195 pounds, is another of the multi-talented players that Miller is recruiting. “Arizona probably has as good of a chance as anyone (to land Odom),” Gershon said.“I would imagine Odom makes a decision pretty soon after his visit to Boston College this weekend. It’d be really good to get another face-up four in there. You’ve got Derrick Williams and Jamelle Horne for the next few years, but to get a third … the team would have a lot of depth.”

The Wildcats have had a rough time going through growing pains in the first half of the season, but now they will have to work through those pains without two of their top players. “We had injuries every year, so

we can’t allow that to get us down,” Amini said. “I think the people we do have are doing a really good job in practice stepping into those holes, so I don’t think it should be that big of an issue.”

Two UA comics come home By Marissa Freireich Arizona Daily Wildcat


wo UA graduates, standup comedians and Comedy Corner veterans — Paul Goebel and Brian McNett — returned to their roots on Sunday when they performed at Gentle Ben’s Brewing Company. Besides doing stand-up for about 20 years, Goebel has acted, written and produced various shows throughout his career. He has appeared in “Not Another Teen Movie,”“Will and Grace” and “Curb Your Enthusiasm.” Goebel graduated from the UA in 1991 with an acting degree. Goebel was the TV geek on the Comedy Central trivia game show “Beat the Geek” for two seasons. This love for television trivia gave Goebel the name the “King of TV.” On the other hand, 1999 UA graduate McNett became involved in stand-up fairly recently. His interest was first sparked when he participated in UA’s Comedy Corner during his senior year, first as a writer and then as a performer. McNett, who grew up in Phoenix, has been living in Los Angeles for the past 10 years, where he said he has been doing some version of comedy since he moved but started to focus on stand-up in the last three years. He started out by doing local openmic nights, and then put together his own act. “It just slowly develops,” he said of his talent for humor. “For me it’s just kind of random.” Although doing stand-up comedy is hard work, McNett said it has always been a rewarding experience.“I definitely just like the challenge and the fact that everything you’re doing up there is you,” he said.“It’s your job to entertain whoever’s there. Once you get up there and start telling the first joke or two, I usually just get into it.” Goebel also said that doing stand-up is difficult; there is not a lot of money in the business, so he does it because it is something he enjoys.

Emily Jones/Arizona Daily Wildcat

Alumnus Paul Goebel performs his comedy act at Gentle Ben’s on Sunday evening. Goebel, who graduated from the UA in 1991, now lives in Los Angeles , Calif.

“I like to make people laugh. It’s what I do,” he said. Goebel compared stand-up comedy to having a conversation where he talks to the audience and they provide instant feedback through laughter and applause. Goebel said that stand-up comedy is different from other types of performing arts, such as music and theater. “With stand-up comedy, it’s just you and a microphone, and when it goes bad you can’t blame the song, you can’t blame the other people in the band, you can’t blame the guy who wrote the thing,” he said. “It’s all you.” On the other hand, when a show goes well, he gets all the credit. “It takes a special kind of person to be able to brave that,” he said. Goebel described his writing process as “free-form,” and said he gets ideas for his material from television and pop culture. He also said he likes to attend the shows of other comics to get ideas. “The main thing is to stay creative,” he said. Goebel got into stand-up comedy through the examples of others. As a child, Goebel said he enjoyed watching “An Evening at the Improv” and

Johnny Carson on television. He would then perform some of their jokes for his friends at school, which led him to come up with his own jokes and become the class clown. Goebel attended Flowing Wells High School in Tucson. During his senior year, he began performing stand-up comedy. During his UA career, Goebel was involved with Comedy Corner for four years and served as the director for three. He also acted in plays such as “Taming of the Shrew” and “Chicago.” Currently, Goebel lives in Los Angeles where he reviews television shows and writes for Web sites. He also works for a directing school. On top of that, he has a weekly podcast, “The Paul Goebel Show.” Goebel co-hosts the podcast with his friend Jim Bruce, whom he has known since high school. “It’s fun to get together with friends once per week and talk about what’s going on in the world,” he said. McNett, who is a frequent guest on Goebel’s podcast, said he enjoys being involved because they all know each other so well. “We know how to play off each other,” he said.
