Breast cancer tour hits campus Officials raise awareness with young women By Lucy Valencia ARIZONA DAILY WILDCAT

A pedestrian is treated by paramedics after being struck by a vehicle in the crosswalk on Mountain Avenue and Speedway Boulevard on Wednesday. The driver was making a left turn and was cited with failure to yield to a pedestrian in a crosswalk.

Grad student walks away after incident, other student hospitalized By Michelle A. Monroe ARIZONA DAILY WILDCAT Jennifer Miller, a political science graduate student, was hit by a car while crossing Sixth Street near Highland Avenue yesterday around 3:20 p.m. “I shouldn’t have crossed here,” she said. “I’ll never cross out of a crosswalk again — well I’d like to say that’s true.” A UA freshman was pulling out of Sixth Street Parking Garage and made an illegal left turn onto Sixth Street. “I was turning left, you aren’t supposed to, and I didn’t see any cars

and I wasn’t looking for a person; I was looking for cars,” he said. Miller was jogging toward Highland Commons for a doctor’s appointment. Christina Manuele, a pre-business sophomore, was behind the car involved in the accident in her car waiting to go onto Sixth Street when she saw the accident. “We saw her legs go up like she flipped, I would have taken her to the hospital just to make sure everything was OK,” she said. Miller was not taken to a hospital but left with “a few scrapes, bumps and bruises.” “The nurse from the school over

there (Mansfeld Middle School) and a doctor came from the Commons within minutes and made sure I didn’t move my head in case there was spinal injuries,” Miller said. “But there’s no neck pain.” After speaking with a University of Arizona Police Department officer, the freshman came over to Miller and apologized for the incident. “I’m so sorry,” he said while giving her a hug. Miller hugged him back saying, “Please don’t worry too much about it; it’s OK.” “I appreciate everyone’s help,” Miller said before walking to the crosswalk at Sixth Street and

Highland Avenue to go to campus. Another female student was hit early Wednesday while walking north in the crosswalk on Mountain Avenue, said UAPD Public Information Officer Sgt. Juan Alvarez. The driver was going south on Mountain Avenue and making a left turn onto Speedway Boulevard when he hit the woman. The pedestrian was transported to University Medical Center with serious but not life threatening injuries. The driver was issued a citation for failing to yield to a pedestrian in a cross walk.

The national Komen On the Go tour stopped at the UA to promote breast cancer awareness Wednesday. Susan G. Komen for the Cure parked its pink trailer at the corner of Fourth Street and Highland Avenue. The event included trivia questions, prizes and an interactive program on laptops in the trailer. The UA was one of the last stops on the eight-week, 35-school tour. Local Susan G. Komen for the Cure affiliates worked with Campus Health Service to bring the tour to the UA. “The University of Arizona was lucky enough to be one of the places they wanted to come,” said Carrie Hardesty, health educator for Campus Health Service. The tour aims to inform college students about breast cancer, especially prevention methods like eating healthily and regular selfexams. Students may be unaware that young women can be diagnosed with the disease or that their current habits may affect their chances later in life. “It’s really important college students do know they can be affected CANCER, page 3

Dining Services grows herbs on roof Student Union restaurants use home-grown goods in meals By Bethany Barnes ARIZONA DAILY WILDCAT Students eating at Cactus Grill probably don’t realize the herbs on their plates were grown right above their heads. Dining Services at the Student Union Memorial Center planted an herb garden on top of the Student Union Memorial Center in March. The idea came from the Dining Services and the Student Union Sustainability committee. The garden supplies herbs to restaurants in the union at no cost. Core Supervisor Louis Andrade

and Retail Dining Manager Jon Levengood visit the garden daily. Andrade says he has enjoyed working with the roof garden so much that he is thinking about planting a garden at home. The garden consists of seven troughs that hold basil, mint, cilantro, oregano, chives, parsley, tarragon and thyme. The cilantro was purchased specifically for Café Sonora. The garden uses all organic soil, and herbs are purchased from Silverbell Nursery. The nursery also serves as the GARDEN, page 5

News Tips

Emily Kornmuller

natural resources sophomore Working at the bookstore, what is the most annoying type of student you have to deal with? The most annoying person is someone who comes up to the register while talking on the phone. I think it’s the most rude thing you can do. It’s extremely annoying and extremely inconsiderate. Do you guys have the No Phone Zone signs here? No, but we really need them. The UMart has them and I even told them that it was a great idea because it annoys the hell out of me whenever people come up here on their phones. I had someone come up five minutes ago who didn’t even pay attention to me, and I had some questions to ask him. The best is when they are talking about something really personal, too, and you feel like you just should not be listening. I always act super nice to them but in a super sarcastic way like, “Oh, is there anything you couldn’t find? I hope you have a great day, sir!” That’s awesome. So do you take part in Halloween? Oh yeah definitely, one of my friends is having a Harry Potter party. Okay wow, all my interviews this week have been about Harry Potter somehow. It’s just such a huge deal, like the new movie is coming out soon, right after Halloween. Harry Potter is literally the best thing ever. So are you dressing up or what? I don’t know who I’m dressing up as yet. I am still debating which character. You should stray away from the stereotypical Ron, Hermione and Harry. How do you feel about couples doing like cliché costumes such as the plug and the outlet? I think that some couple costumes are cute but it depends on what the costume is and who the couple is. If the couple is already a really annoying couple then seeing them dress up together is going to be really annoying. But if it’s a cute couple who is really fun and they chose a fun costume, then it’s adorable. Would you ever do the outlet and the plug? No, never. What is your least favorite costume on Halloween? Just when people wear lingerie with the animal ears. I just think that is so cliché. Come one, be a little more original and a little less … yeah.

New iPhone app could become tool for cyberbullies A new iPhone app called the “Ugly Meter” is just what cyberbullies — including elementary school kids--need to target easy marks, online security experts told The 99-cent app, now available for iPhone users on Apple’s iTunes Store, uses facial recognition software that measures symmetry and other features. Downloaded more than 20,000 times and designed for users ages 9 and above, the app scans a snapshot and then submits a score of 1 to 10.

Bo Derek is not a 10. On this scale, you want desperately to be a 1. A 10 garners this message: “You’re so ugly, when you walk by the bathroom, the toilet flushes.” A mere 9.4 gets: “You look like you ran a 100-yard dash in a 90yard gym.”  While the app’s creators say they’re just having some fun, some critics say the software can be malicious in the wrong hands. It’s “right on the borderline” of appropriate and inappropriate,

said Stephen Balkam, CEO of the Washington-based Family Online Safety Institute. “I can see that the guys who programmed it were having a bit of fun and all,” Balkam said. “If you’re 25, 26 or 28, this sort of thing could be quite funny or amusing. But in the hands of a 14or 15-year-old, it could be quite the reverse, and particularly if someone is submitting someone else’s photograph and then circulated that photo around school.” —

Today’s birthday

Wisdom arrives this year on the wings of intelligent flights of idealism. Use your values this year in charitable activities. You’d be surprised at the connections you can make that have positive career and social impacts. Apply conscious intention to all areas of your work. Aries (March 21 - April 19) — Today is an 8 — An older individual, possibly a grandparent, makes you aware of circumstances from the past that answer a lot of questions. This gives new perspective. Taurus (April 20 - May 20) — Today is a 5 — Wherever you find yourself today, accept a service role. Others depend on your logical recommendations. You serve yourself this way, too. Gemini (May 21 - June 21) — Today is a 6 — Unless plans arise to spend time with someone special, stick close to home and get to bed early. Still, a magical night is worth yawns the next day. Cancer (June 22 - July 22) — Today is a 9 — This is no time to keep secrets. Share information as well as logic. Then others understand your motives and will support what you’re up to. Leo (July 23 - Aug. 22) — Today is a 6 — One-sided thinking creates extra stress for you and your favorite people. Review the facts to discover a previously unexplored option. Try it out.

Libra (Sept. 23 - Oct. 22) — Today is a 7 — Your favorite person wants to take an entirely new direction. You’d prefer sticking to the familiar path. Either way, a map is helpful. Scorpio (Oct. 23 - Nov. 21) — Today is a 7 — Apply your best effort to get more work accomplished now. An older person has a definite idea of what’s needed. It’s up to you to make it happen. Sagittarius (Nov. 22 - Dec. 21) — Today is a 6 — From your perspective, an older group member causes extra trouble. If you need results now, discuss it in person for best resolution. Capricorn (Dec. 22 - Jan. 19) — Today is an 8 — Repairs create a drain on your bank account. Resist the desire to redesign things and just fix what’s necessary. You’ll be glad you did. Aquarius (Jan. 20 - Feb. 18) — Today is a 6 — Spend part of the day on a creative writing project. Do some Internet research to gather information to flesh out a plot or character.

ASUA starts preparing for years ahead By Jazmine Woodberry ARIZONA DAILY WILDCAT ASUA is looking months and years into the future. The Associated Students of the University of Arizona held a 17-minute meeting on Wednesday, due to a speaker delaying their presentation until next week, leaving most of their agenda points to run down rather quickly. “We want to make sure we have the plans laid out for them so the student body president two years from now can take it up,” said ASUA President Emily Fritze of plans to bring Spring Fling back to campus in the next few years. Fritze noted that discussions took place regarding the proposition of bringing the largest student-run carnival in America back to the UA campus, where it has been held in years past, but nothing was decided on. She also presented the official proposal of the university-wide elections week, to be held March 7, the approved week of their elections. Fritze said both the Graduate and Professional Student Council and the Faculty Senate both expressed interest in “working out the logistics” to organize and then market the election week to students. But there were plenty of things left to approve on this week’s agenda. “I just want to say thank you for passing funds for Service Olympics and if you are not able to do clubs or aren’t in a club I strongly recommend you come out and talk to these clubs and see what they are all about,” said Sen. Garrett Voge, shortly after a unanimous vote approved the funding request. The senate voted to approve the prize money for the Service Olympics, a week of events where different ASUArecognized clubs can compete in the fundraiser, raising money for their club. Sen. Mary Myles began working with the UA Office of Scholarships and Financial Aid for more awareness of access for students and their financial aid opportunities through UAccess. Forums will be held starting in November. Former senator and presidential cabinet member Tyler Quillin’s peer mentorship program, is “looking for new mentors to their team,” according to Sen. Courtney Campbell, who is working with Quillin on the project. Applications for those positions are due by Oct. 29. Sen. Taylor Bilby also asked for her item, a second shot at a request for poster funds for her April 1 Tanzbodeli arts and culture festival, to be stricken from the agenda. She was unable to get together her finalized budget in time for the Wednesday meeting and wanted a finished product for the senate to vote on in the future.

Students take a self-guided tour on computers in the Komen On the Go van on Wednesday. The tour gave students information including how to get involved in raising awareness to fight breast cancer.

by breast cancer,” said Kim Kirchhoff, tour operations manager for Komen On the Go. Students who watched the interactive video also learned about the history of the organization, breast cancer’s impact on the community and volunteer opportunities. Participants entered a drawing and were given drawstring bags containing more information. Janene Fernandez, a sophomore studying Spanish, attended the event because her aunt has breast cancer. She said she did not know a lot about the disease before her aunt was affected.

“I think it’s important because (breast cancer) affects women of all ages,” Fernandez said. Most affected women are diagnosed with breast cancer after the age of 40, according to the American Cancer Society, but Fernandez said her aunt was diagnosed at age 26. “I definitely think it affects college students as well,” she said. Hardesty said breast cancer is so common that most people know someone who has the disease. “Maybe it’s a friend’s mother or sister,” Hardesty said. “If you yourself go, whether or not you’re affected, you can get educated.”

Pre-business sophomore Chris Kerrin volunteered at the event through ZonaZoo Crew. He said awareness initiatives are important for college students. “It’s never too early to get checked out,” Kerrin said. “(Breast cancer) can strike at any age.” He said more education is needed. “It’s getting better, but I think it could be more prevalent on campus,” Kerrin said. Hardesty said the tour provided necessary information about the disease. “It’s really getting to the meat behind it,” Hardesty said.

UA must keep humanities intact Alexandra Bortnik Arizona Daily Wildcat


he State University of New York at Albany recently announced plans to eliminate degree programs in French, Italian, classics, Russian and theater. When it came time to enroll for classes, very few students opted for these humanities courses, leading the administration to the pennysaving conclusion to eliminate the programs altogether. In a time of financial struggle and seemingly endless budget cuts, universities are incessantly searching for reasons to get rid of “unnecessary” classes, staff members and now entire degree programs. There is a fear, however, that our nation’s thinning budget and lean toward practicality will leave its people dull-minded and uninspired. American universities have always offered the widest range of degree programs and, unlike other countries, have not funneled their students into one field of study. In the past, America stood out as the less practical, some would say, dreamy nation, which encouraged its youth to spend time in “luxurious” subjects such as film and art history. It turns out, however, that “nations such as China and Singapore, which previously ignored the humanities, are now aggressively promoting them, because they have concluded that the cultivation of the imagination through the study of literature, film, and other arts is essential to fostering creativity and innovation,” according to a recent article in The New York Times. Humanities courses teach students to invent by exploring their imaginations and encouraging their creativity — a tool that is necessary for the growth of any business. Without creativity and inspiration from history, art, literature and the like, businesses will cease to grow and change as a result of their mechanical and unimaginative leaders. Studying history and other cultures provides a refined understanding of one’s surroundings and gives way to a more sophisticated mind. Philosophy courses that hone skills in critical thinking, logic and argumentation are “essential in order to foster healthy debate inside a business world that might too easily become complacent or corrupt,” the New York Times article reported. A recent memo sent to the UA from President Shelton in reference to the state’s budget cuts stated, “Regardless of the … budget deliberations, we are committed to maintain a worldclass faculty and to strategically invest in those core areas of greatness that will propel the UA into the coming decades.” Judging from the UA’s growth toward becoming a solely research-based university, defining those “core areas” could result in the elimination of humanities courses. The UA’s downsized library staff and consolidation of libraries is not a positive omen for highly ranked, strong degree programs such creative writing, photography and media arts at the U A. The unsettling reality of rampant budget cuts and the drastic, money conscience changes made by universities requires students to stay informed and defend their programs. — Alexandra Bortnik is a creative writing junior.

Letters from

Mallory Hawkins Arizona Daily Wildcat

Obnoxious neighbors, ven though we have not formally met, I can say with certainty that I like few people less than I like you. In the past few weeks of the semester, and for the entirety of my college career, it has become clear to me that you are more like a young child than a 20-something young adult. College, despite what you may think, is not an excuse for a 24/7 party. While I appreciate your willingness to have a good time, the techno music you insist on partying to is not welcome. The perpetual beat from your music is coincidentally the exact beat to which your neighbor would love to bang your head against a wall. You’re not the first neighborhood party boy, but you’re certainly the worst of your kind. Unlike you, most party animals have the decency to invite their neighbors over for the festivities. At least have some courtesy and give your neighbors a warning if your party is going to get crazy and an invitation isn’t an option. Please take note or take caution — I wouldn’t put it past your now pissed off neighbors to find an open window into your apartment or house in order to break your speakers and end your festivities. For those of you who have the gift of gab, it is neither my birthday nor Christmas,

Melt the party polar caps, not the ice caps

Sitting at the Congressional District 8 debate on Monday, one couldn’t help but be perturbed by the incessant cheers and jeers during candidate’s responses. Even more annoying were the well-advertised supporters of the candidates, who would stand up mid-sentence and verbally accost the opposing candidate. Perhaps having few to no supporters present was a positive for Libertarian candidate Steve Stoltz; at least he was afforded the opportunity of a quiet audience to address (a luxury he rapidly squandered away, as he responded to every question with one sentence that usually just restated the question). The supporters of Republican Jesse Kelly and incumbent Democrat Gabrielle Giffords, who made their voices heard at the debate, provide a perfect example of what is wrong with politics and the political party system today. People say politicians talk too much, but even if they talked less, audiences in the political world today wouldn’t listen. Every political activist has become so entrenched in his or her own party that they don’t even care about platforms or even issues. It’s one thing to have a firm stance on abortion; it’s another to blindly support a candidate solely because he or she is from the same party as you. What happens in today’s political world is voters discarding issues they care about when it comes down to Democrat vs. Republican. So was the case in Michigan when a pro-life Democrat, Bart Stupak, won over the Democratic voters, who are traditionally pro-choice. Now Stupak has

so please keep that gift to yourself. As your neighbor, I don’t even know what you look like, but unfortunately your obnoxiously loud voice is permanently echoing in my head. When you carry out your conversations on speakerphone, your neighbors can’t help but judge you. Being dumb is not a crime, but when you allow someone else to hear that you think your area code is 85719, there should be some type of punishment. One may think he’s hit the jackpot moving in next door to what appears to be a polite, harmless geek, but he’d be wrong. Coming home from a night out only to hear what sounds like World War III happening next door because your neighbor decided to have all his nerd friends over to play Halo on a Friday is the definition of a nightmare. Along the same lines is a note to the musically inspired gamers — you may have seen a million faces, but you’ve yet to rock any of them. Your attempt to perfect any of the songs on Rock Band is less than amusing, to say the least.

announced he won’t seek re-election because of all the pressure he received from the Democratic Party when it came to an abortion portion of the health care bill. Why were the Democrats so flabbergasted that one of their own would oppose them? Stupak was concerned about issues, not about what party he belonged to. Party polarization is crippling this country. Most Republicans automatically reject anything produced by the Democrats, and Democrats expect every one of their party members to blindly fall in line and vote alongside them. But who can blame them? If your opponent is willing to aimlessly vote as one unified coalition whose only common goal is to beat you, then shouldn’t you try to mindlessly gather your entire group together with the common goal of simply beating them? American politicians seem to think so. — Storm Byrd is a political science sophomore. He is also a student organizer for UA Votes, which is run by Arizona Students’ Association.

When considering Prop. 302, ask, ‘But what about the children?’

Hey, kids. It’s (unfortunately) time to put on your personal ethics hat. The issue with Proposition 302, which seeks to repeal the Arizona First Things First Program, is one of trust. Specifically, do you trust Gov. Mumm-Ra the Ever-Living — I mean Brewer — and her intentions with our taxes? The text of the proposition says that the funds from a cigarette tax hike in 2006

feet between my door and the last spot your dog defecated, which doesn’t leave much room for the smell to escape. Please claim your poop or get rid of the pup. While you’re on your way to the dumpster, please take your trash. This is college, and there is no maid service to take out your garbage. The only thing that is going to result in leaving your trash out front of your door is neighbors upset by the cockroaches and mice it attracts. I don’t know how long you’ve been driving, but you should look into learning how to park your car; it will prove to be a valuable lesson. You are lucky most college students don’t have the time to do anything but curse your car, otherwise you would have a collection of strongly worded notes telling you that your shit will be keyed the next time you decide to park like an a-hole. Just once I would like to be able to leave my apartment feeling like Mr. Rogers with a beautiful day in the neighborhood ahead of me. So please be more considerate. My best friend once made the claim that children are to be seen and not heard; the same can be said for neighbors. — Mallory Hawkins is a communication senior. She can be reached at

(currently around $300 million, with $125 million from the same tax coming in every year) will no longer go toward early-childhood preventative health care. Instead, it will be deposited in the state general fund and be “separately accounted for and shall be appropriated for health and human services for children.” Basically, Governor Palpatine is aiming is to make a source of revenue more flexible so she can try to balance the budget. But what about “the children?” Take a look at the text of the proposition. It makes it pretty clear that the money will also go toward “the children,” just in a more general, possibly sketchy way. Here are a few more pennies for your thoughts: According to a weekend article in the Arizona Daily Star, Governor Skeletor “won’t urge people to support Proposition 302, even though its failure would leave a huge hole in her spending plan … necessary to balance the budget.” Also, Terry Goddard has been all up in her grill about it, doing his best to assure Arizona voters that Governor Aku hates “the children.” He might be right, but he’s probably hatin’ so he can get elected, and is definitely the least trustworthy character witness for Governor Voldemort in the entire universe. — Remy Albillar is a senior majoring in English and creative writing.

UA slips from 25th to 37th nationally

and development spending has consistently risen year-to-year, with an exception from 2006 to 2007, when expenditures decreased by $4 million overall. This fall was in part due to a $32 million decrease in federally financed expenditures. Overall, the share of national university research and development funding that is federally financed declined to 59 percent total spending, down five percent from 2004, according to the National Science Foundation. Overall, research and development spending has increased notably during that same time frame thanks in part to increased financing from industry components. Total research spending for higher education has likewise increased at a 5.8 percent clip in fiscal year 2009, and now totals $54.935 billion nationally. At the UA, federal funding for research and development totaled $287.9 million in 2009, and accounted for the lion’s share of the UA’s $545.9 million in total research and development expenditures that year. Though 2010 numbers have not yet been finalized, the UA is expecting the federal commitment to jump to $308 million, its highest level

since 2006. This increase accounts for almost the entirety of the expected $22 million increase in overall research and development spending from last year. One reason for the UA’s decline in federal funds spending from 2004

Schools that are part of the center: University of California, Davis University of California, Los Angeles Desert Research Institute, Reno University of Colorado, Boulder Scripps Institution of Oceanography at the University of California, San Diego to 2009 may be the growing role of Arizona State University as a research institution. The UA slipped from 25th to 37th in federally financed research

expenditures, one of the steepest drops of any university ranked in the top 100 for those funds. ASU however, experienced one of the most meteoric rises, climbing 30 places to now sit at 76th in the nation. ASU also ranked 17th nationally for research and development expenditures in fields other than science and engineering, according to the National Science Foundation. In 2008, the UA ranked 16th nationally for research and development spending at public universities, good for fourth in the Pacific 10 Conference behind the University of California, Los Angeles (4th), University of Washington (6th) and University of California, Berkeley (12th). UCLA, UW, Stanford University and UC Berkeley all rank below the UA in the top 20 nationally for total research and development spending. Nationally, some fields are doing better than others. For instance, spending in the fields of aeronautics and astronautical engineering increased by 16.4 and 14.2 percent respectively, while spending for mathematics decreased by 10.9 percent.

the same time we can control the access to it,” Levengood said. “We’d thought about putting herbs out in the walkways and stuff, but then people are dumping their sodas in them.” Soft roof pads serve as a pathway to the garden. The pads make it so that people can walk to and from the garden without damaging the roof. Those involved hope the garden will be an opportunity for education. Dave Mitchell, Student Union Sustainability committee chair, is excited about the garden’s possibilities. “It’s educational for one, we obviously don’t meet our needs to sell all the food to campus but there are some unique dishes we make with the herbs,” Mitchell said.

Employees jumped at the chance to work with the garden, according to Levengood. Now 12-15 employees maintain the garden. “If a student or an employee gets inspired and starts growing herbs at home, then we feel it’s mission accomplished,” Levengood said. They are hoping to expand the garden and are looking at possible locations, according to Levengood. Both Andrade and Levengood said they would be happy to give students a tour of the garden if they showed an interest. Dining Services is developing a logo for restaurants that use the rooftop herbs. The garden’s next challenge will be to see how the herbs fare through winter.





Pesticides banned from garden

gardening guru for Levengood and Andrade, who don’t have previous gardening experience. Levengood describes the gardening process as trial and error, noting that the project has been a lot of fun. “No pesticides will ever be used up here. We’ve taken a pretty firm stance on that,” Levengood said. Because of their commitment to not using pesticides, they’ve had to find ways to combat pests from handpicking off caterpillars and doing Internet research to get rid of gnats. Official tours are not currently being offered, and the garden is inaccessible to the public. “It’s kind of a bummer because a lot of people don’t know about it but at

Registered sex offender calls UA students

Two UA students reported receiving harassing phone calls to their dorm room phone that were suspected to be from a man between 5:30 a.m. on Oct. 14, and 5:30 a.m. on Monday. The women reported the incident to UAPD at 6:45 a.m. on Monday. A UAPD officer went to the women’s residence hall where the women told him that an unknown caller, who they believed to be a white adult male, had started calling the telephone in their dorm room at approximately 5:30 a.m. on Oct. 14. The caller asked what the student who answered was wearing. She handed the phone to her roommate, thinking that it was her boyfriend. The caller then asked the student on the phone if she was wearing a bra. She asked the caller why he was calling her. He replied, “Because I’m horny.” The woman hung up on the caller, but he proceeded to call back several times between then and the next four days. Each time he called he continued to breathe heavily, speak softly and ask what the student on the phone was wearing. Both of the women in the dorm room felt the calls were “creepy,” but told the officer they declined to pursue prosecutorial proceedings if a suspect was identified. The officer then went to University Information Technology Services. He was able to successfully determine the phone where the calls were coming from. The officer also found the full name and address of the man to whom the number belongs. The officer then located records for the same man, discovering that he is a registered sex offender with an address matching that of the one he had found through UITS. The officer returned to the residence hall where the two women lived and asked if either one of them knew the man. Both said that they did not. He then asked them if they wished for UAPD to contact the man and have him stop calling them, to which they both replied, “Yes.” After returning to UAPD, the officer used a department phone and audio tape recorder to call the number from which the calls originated. After the officer dialed the phone number, a man answered the phone. This same man later verbally identified himself with the same name as that of the registered sex offender. The officer asked him a series of questions on the phone. The man admitted that he had been calling phone numbers at random and would only talk to the person who answered if it was a woman. He said he had spoken to women whom he didn’t know and asked them questions while he masturbated. The man admitted that he had made a “huge mistake.” He also said he would stop making the phone calls. The officer told him that these types of phone calls were a misdemeanor offense and if any woman who received the calls wanted to press charges, he would be under arrest. The two UA students were notified by a voicemail that the man had been contacted by UAPD and said he would not call again.

The dependables

Total team effort needed By Nicole Dimtsios Arizona Daily Wildcat

Mike Christy/Arizona Daily Wildcat

David Douglas, 85, has been a go-to wide receiver for the Arizona Wildcats this season. He and fellow junior David Roberts specialize in moving the chains and making key blocks that set up big plays for stars like wide receiver Juron Criner and running back Nic Grigsby.

Douglas, Roberts the unsung heroes of UA’s offense By Tim Kosch Arizona Daily Wildcat Juron Criner has stolen the headlines this season. The junior’s highlight-reel grabs and 16.7 yards-per-catch average are enough for wide-eyed fans to whisper NFL and All-Pac-10 rumors, but hidden beneath the glaring star power of Criner are two wide receivers who are as dependable to a quarterback as a dog is to its owner. Meet the two David’s: David Douglas and David Roberts. They aren’t as big as Criner, but they do whatever it takes to win, whether that means running underneath routes to move the

chains, or making a key block to spring a run. “It’s hard work, you can’t be up and down because you might not get that many opportunities but you have to make sure you capitalize on every single one,” Roberts said. “You have to be consistent, and that’s always where I put my focus on, being that consistent guy and making sure that every time I’m supposed to make a play I make that play.” Roberts, a junior, has just 17 catches this year for 173 yards but he has made his opportunities count. His diving catch against Iowa not only made him look like football’s version of Jim Edmonds, it sparked the Wildcats

game-winning drive in the fourth quarter. Douglas, also a junior, has better stats than Roberts – 27 catches for 250 yards and two touchdowns – but he’s also had to make the most of his opportunities. “My goal is to come out here and be a consistent and dependable guy for the team,” Douglas said. This year has been a different one for Douglas. After being an inside receiver his entire Wildcat career, he moved to outside receiver when Delashaun Dean left the team. The move, according to Douglas, was an easy one.

“I’ve moved out there and I feel at home,” Douglas said. “It’s a comfortable spot and I enjoy it.” Yet despite the talent of both players, they play second fiddle to Criner’s stardom, but that might not be a bad thing. Inside receivers coach Garrett Chachere says the hole in the two receivers’ production is exaggerated by all the good things they’ve done on the field throughout their careers. “They’ve both been very dependable for us,” Chachere said. “It’s to a point where if they don’t catch a ball, it’s almost a surprise

Linebacker Paul Vassallo, 41, and safety Joe Perkins, 9, converge on Oregon State’s James Rodgers. Vassallo and the rest of the defense will likely need to pick up the slack while the offense transitions to a new quarterback.

But an unproven Scott is making his first start of 2010 and it remains to be seen how the offense will respond. Despite players and coaches having confidence in Scott, there’s no denying that the offense has taken

some points.” The 6-foot-5, 245-pound Foles made almost anything seem possible offensively – see the gamewinning drive against Iowa or the improbable Foles-led win over Cal.

DIMTSIOS, page 10

Usually, ‘the more the merrier’ is a saying that applies to most anything involving college sports, but that isn’t the case with this year’s Arizona volleyball team. Of the team’s seven Pacific-10 Conference matches, five of them have gone to a deciding fifth set. Two more such matches came in non-conference play. The Wildcats are 3-4 on the season in 5-set matches, and 2-3 in Pac-10 play. “It adds up physically, especially with our team right now being so small in numbers,” senior setter Paige Weber said. “With the same people having to play every day, it’s tiring, and that’s becoming evident as more and more people are getting more and more worn down.” Head coach Dave Rubio knows that his team’s tendency to take matches to the fifth set could be costly at some point, especially in a conference with as much depth as the Pac-10. “It wears on you, you have to be resilient in the conference, win or lose,” Rubio said. At this point in the season, resiliency is what the Wildcats need. Arizona’s last four matches have gone to the fifth set, with the Wildcats going 2-2 over that stretch. The depth of the conference doesn’t give the Wildcats a chance to reflect on previous matches before having to play in the nation’s toughest volleyball conference. “Whether you win or lose, the next week you have another set of great teams that you’re going to have to play,” Rubio said. That’s certainly the case this weekend, when Arizona travels to the Pacific Northwest to take on Washington and

No Foles means defense must carry the weight Asking a top 10 defense to elevate its play may seem crazy, but with star quarterback Nick Foles on crutches, Arizona will have to lean on its defense more than ever over the course of the next few weeks. “We need to step up our level of play just to help our offense get going and just to give (the offense) the excitement to just go out there and score out some points,” said senior defensive end Ricky Elmore. After solidifying itself as one of the Pacific 10 Conference’s most lethal offenses, the Wildcats’ offensive attack suddenly becomes limited with Matt Scott now under center and Foles in street clothes. Ever since Foles took over the starting job, the Wildcats have becomean offense-first team with a defense that has come to exceed expectations. But with Scott, Arizona shifts to a defense-focused team hoping to score enough points to keep pace. “If (the offense) has some bugs they have to work out the first couple of drives and can’t get in the endzone,” Elmore said, “we have to step up and get some turnovers or some three-and-outs just to keep getting them the ball so they can get into the flow of things and score

Despite their hot start to the year, the Arizona Wildcats are still looking for that complete team effort. In every game this season, there has been some part of the Arizona football team that failed to show up. Against Iowa, the Wildcat offense disappeared in the second half, and, as a result, the Hawkeyes nearly pulled off a comeback that would have been of Oregon (in 2009) proportions. The offense was still on hiatus during the Cal game, and only a last minute touchdown from quarterback Nick Foles to receiver Juron Criner gave the Wildcats the one-point victory. It was the defense that did Arizona in against Oregon State. The defensive line couldn’t get to Ryan Katz, and when it did he still managed to burn the secondary. Special teams were also a problem for the Wildcats, with a missed field goal and a point after try that left dangling off the scoreboard. Even Washington State exploited a Wildcat weakness — the Arizona offensive line gave up six sacks to a Cougar defense that only had a total of 10 coming into the game. This week though, there is no room for error on any side of the ball. With Nick Foles sidelined for at least two weeks, Matt Scott enters as Wildcat quarterback in the middle of the season.

Q& A

Harvey Mason Jr. Former Wildcat hoops star turned successful producer


Harvey Mason Jr. played basketball at the University of Arizona from 1986-90, but after college made his fame as a music producer and songwriter, producing for acts such as Aretha Franklin, Luther Vandross, Chris Brown and Drake. His 2009 release of the film “More Than a Game” featured the NBA’s LeBron James on his rise to stardom, which will show tonight at Centennial Hall. The Arizona Daily Wildcat talked with Mason Jr. about his memories of Arizona, his career in music and the Kobe/LeBron debate.

Mike Christy/Arizona Daily Wildcat

Harvey Mason Jr. embraces Lute Olson after speaking at his retirement ceremony on Aug. 8, 2009, at McKale Center. Mason Jr., who played for Olson from 1986-90, co-produced “More Than a Game,” which will be shown at Centennial Hall tonight at 7.

Mason Jr. to show LeBron film By Kevin Zimmerman ARIZONA DAILY WILDCAT The pop-culture community knows Harvey Mason Jr. for his talent as a musician. At Arizona, he’s known more for his days playing under Hall of Fame head coach Lute Olson from 1986-1990. His two loves entwined, Mason Jr. returns to Tucson today for a free showing of “More Than a Game,” a documentary film following the pre-NBA hoops career of Miami Heat superstar LeBron James and his high school teammates. The screening will take begin in Centennial Hall at 7 p.m. and a Q&A session with Mason Jr. will take place afterwards. “The story was pretty universal and pretty relevant to my life and my career, having a son that I coach and having an AAU team that I coach,” Mason Jr. said. “The hard work and the dedication that went into what these guys did, under a lot of adversity and against a lot of steep odds — these

Yeah, we all keep in touch. We definitely check in on one another when something special happens. Four weeks ago I went to (former UA basketball player and MLB All-Star) Kenny Lofton’s induction to the Cleveland Indians Hall of Fame and that sort of stuff we definitely get together. Coach Olson is always kind of a centerpiece of getting together. I’m seeing coach on Friday and some of the other guys will be in town.

Daily Wildcat: I think I was a 1-year-old when you were a senior at Arizona. What type of player were you?

What is the most fun part of your job right now, I mean, you work with talented people everyday. What’s that like?

Harvey Mason Jr.: I was super intense, high energy, fight to the death type of player. I was not the best player on the team by far, but I was going to work as hard as anyone, you know, as hard as I possibly could, to make the most of what I had. I was a very team-oriented player. Coming out of high school, averaging 30, 40 points a game and going to college, I wanted to be a part of something bigger. That’s kind of a theme in the film (“More Than a Game”) that was reflected in my life … so at the U of A I did anything to help the team. I think that summed up my personality as a basketball player.

The most fun is the diversity in the things I get to do. If I had to do the same thing everyday, I would probably go crazy. I’m able to work on different styles of music, everyday it’s a different personality. It’s definitely a challenge to figure out all the different artists and their little idiosyncrasies, and the strange things that they need to perform. It’s just fun in the sense that it’s always a variety of activities and the fact that I get to do film and TV and music.

What were your fondest memories playing under coach Olson? Do you have any particular anecdotes that stick out? My fondest memories were being around all the guys and coach Olson; road trips, traveling together, eating dinner together. We especially all loved traveling around the country my junior year as the number one ranked team, in the world basically, and just beating up people, and just going city-to-city just running through other people’s teams. That was so much fun. It was just the time spent with the other guys and coach Olson and the other coaches. It was a family. That’s what I loved, and that’s what I took away after all the wins and losses, the slam dunks and special plays — the relationships and the bond you have with the guys you played with.

What are your thoughts on coach Miller and this year’s team? What do you think they’re going to do? I don’t have any great predictions, because I don’t know enough about the players. But I really like coach Miller, I really like his staff. I think they’ve done a great job of upholding the tradition. They’ve really gone out of their way to reach out to the old coaches and the old players … which I think is smart because we have such a strong basketball alumni (base). I like his demeanor, I like his personality. I like how he treats his players, I like the type of kids he’s bringing in. I’m really optimistic about the program. It was at such a high level, he’s got a ways to go to get there, but I’m really optimistic about him doing it. I think he’s a great person for the job. You guys are in Hollywood? That’s where your company is based?

At which point , entering your senior year or during it, did you decide, “Oh what are you going to do after college”?

Yes, North Hollywood.

Well my decision was made for me my senior year. I tore my ACL. That was kind of the end of my basketball career. I was starting at the time and had pretty much a career-ending injury, like two games past the point that I could have redshirted. I had to figure out what to do. I was always involved with music even when I was in school. I was always writing and playing and producing. It was kind of a logical thing.

I’m a Clippers guy. Yeah, unfortunately.

You and your teammates all went

different directions, I mean Steve Kerr is the GM, now he’s back to announcing. Do you guys keep in touch at all?

Are you a Lakers guy or are you…?

I’ve been reading about it a lot, would you choose Kobe (Bryant) or LeBron (James) in a one-on-one? I would choose Kobe. Killer instincts, I mean LeBron is physically incredible, but I don’t think he has the killer instinct Kobe has. I think if it was one-on-one, one man has to beat the other, Kobe’s instincts and will to win would take over.

Football still aiming for the Rose Bowl

of, but we also understand the situation,� said junior linebacker Paul Vassallo. “It does change things up switching quarterbacks midseason, so as a defense we just know we have to be spot on like we were last week and good things will happen.� Arizona ranks seventh in the nation in scoring defense, allowing 13.3 points per game. The Wildcats also come in at 10th in yards allowed per game at 284.33. Despite the stellar play, the defense isn’t satisfied. “I think we’ve exceeded expectations so far for us, but we’re not where we want to be,� Elmore said. “We dropped down in the defensive rankings (from) where we were the first five games, so I think a lot of guys want to respond this week and slow down a really powerful offense and prove how good our defense is.� Although they are clearly capable of shutting down opposing offenses, it’s a different mindset when you’re asked to shoulder the load and carry a team. With fewer big plays on offense, the defensive unit needs to rekindle the ball-hawking, playmaking style that was on display against Iowa. Through six games, the defense has been

the unquestioned bright spot after facing criticism leading up to the season. But despite that success, the last six remaining games just got a whole lot more interesting without Foles. “I think I can speak for everybody to say we’re proud of what we’ve accomplished, but we know we have six more games and so these six don’t define what we’ve done and we still have a lot of work that needs to be done,� Vassallo said.

Arizona still eying Rose Bowl

Despite falling to Oregon State two weeks ago and the crushing loss of quarterback Nick Foles last Saturday, goals haven’t changed for the Wildcats. Since the first day of training camp, they’ve still been breaking huddles with “Rose Bowl,� and that will still continue despite the circumstances. “No, no, no, no not at all,� said Vassallo when asked if their goals have changed. “We dropped one to Oregon State, but still our expectations are Rose Bowl. Every break, every huddle. Things have not changed, that’s still our number one goal. I don’t think anyone’s going to be satisfied unless we get there.�

Dimtsios continued from page 7

Offense, defense and specials must be perfect

So by default, Scott has the pre-determined learning curve this weekend, even before the game starts. That’s not to say that he will be the aspect of the team that fails to show up, but he will most certainly be the part that has to make the most adjustment. Scott knows the offense — he was the starter at the beginning of last season, after all — but it was clear when he entered the game last weekend that there was still some adjustment that needed to happen. And that adjustment applies to the offensive line, running backs, receivers and even the defense. Even if Mike Stoops and the Arizona coaching staff say that the Wildcat offense won’t change, quarterback isn’t exactly a replaceable position. Each has a different style of play, and it’s clear that Foles and Scott differ on many levels. That’s the reason all phases of the ball need to show up, especially against a Washington team that is looking to turn its season around and live up to its preseason hype that reached the Huskies all the way in Seattle.

No more sacks. No more drive-killing penalties. No more missed opportunities for points. Not at home, and especially not if you want to save any buzz from being an early-season surprise in the Pacific-10 Conference. The defense seemed to right the ship against Washington State, but Jake Locker is ever capable of having a breakout game. Just ask Oregon State. It will be enough of an adjustment for the Wildcats to have another player claim the reins without adding more roadblocks, or more pressure for a Wildcat victory. If the coaching staff really wants to prove that Wildcat nation shouldn’t be pushing the panic button just yet, Arizona will need to make a statement at home against Washington. And for that to happen, a team effort needs to be displayed at Arizona Stadium on Saturday. — Nicole Dimtsios is a journalism junior. She can be reached at

Former Wildcat tells the story of Lebron James

MASON JR. continued from page 8

Belman’s 10-minute, senior class project at Loyola Marymount University. The duo clicked, and the film became much more than a thesis. “We hired an archivist to go back and really scour the country for (footage), either independent people filming on little handheld cams or cell phones, news organizations (and) we got a lot of stuff from ESPN,” Mason Jr. said. “I think the more impressive footage was (Belman’s) stuff that he shot that’s kind of the more intimate person stuff; behind the scenes, in the locker rooms, the buses, LeBron’s house, which I think makes the movie more than just a highlight reel.” From the beginning, it was meant to differ from most documentaries. “We just wanted to do something that looked like a major feature film, narrativestyle movie. We didn’t want to do just a doc, just an ESPN-style TV show,” Mason Jr. said. “We pushed the limits on special effects, on sound design.” Mason Jr. oversaw production, hiring, interviews and of course the music. He said

VOLLEYBALL continued from page 7

Wildcats getting tired, hurt as season heats up

Washington State. The good thing about all of the five-set matches is that it shows Arizona is able to compete with some of the top teams in the country. Unfortunately for the Wildcats, the results aren’t there in terms of wins and losses. Sometimes when a team is coming out on the wrong end of close matches, it can be because of a break or two going the other way. Junior middle blocker Courtney Karst doesn’t think that’s been the case so far. “We’re right there, but it just shows we can be so much better,” Karst said. “It’s not like the ball’s bouncing the wrong way; some people just outplay us.” Arizona has been serving to win in nearly every fifth set so far this season, but a few different things have contributed to the losses. Sometimes it’s been because of errors on the Wildcats’ part, which was the case against UCLA last Friday. Other times, the team has just been outplayed in the deciding set, like against Southern California on Saturday. Neither is satisfying to Karst, but she can at least take something away from the match when her team gives its all. “I’d rather win, obviously,” Karst continued.

FOOTBALL continued from page 7

an 80-piece orchestra was used to create the music — a soundtrack produced for the movie includes music from Mary J. Blige, Chris Brown and Jordin Sparks. The most well known song of the album is the Drake single “Forever,” which features Kanye West, Lil Wayne and Eminem. “All the songs we did were specifically for the film,” Mason Jr. said. “We had pretty much everybody involved in the soundtrack I wanted to include. Everyone was excited.” Mason Jr. said he was attracted to the project when seeing similar life lessons in the film’s story as he did while playing basketball at Arizona. “Just being around the game and knowing what it takes to be successful and knowing how you have to overcome so much to be successful at everything,” he said, “that’s the case in my basketball life. “Having been around Coach Olson and great players, you know, Steve Kerr, Sean Elliot — watching guys and teams accomplish great things, those are the things I gravitate towards.”

“But I guess when we play our hardest it’s easier to take.”

‘Cats licking their wounds

Outside hitter Whitney Dosty has been battling a stress fracture in her ankle, and has been limited in practice for the last week and a half. “It’s been frustrating for her, and obviously for us too,” Rubio said. “The complexity of our team changes quite a bit with her either in there or not in there; hopefully she’ll continue to improve and get stronger.” Finding a balance between finding a player practice time without risking their status for a match is sometimes difficult, but Dosty being a senior gives Rubio a little more leeway when making that decision. “She benefits from a high volume of touches, but she’s been in there and done it so I don’t think that (missing practice) would be a tough experience for her,” he said. Freshman libero Candace Nicholson is also going up against a chronic wrist problem. Both players have been limited in practice, but should be able to play this weekend.

Douglas, Roberts a quarterback’s best friend

and everybody starts to wonder what’s going on. But really, they’ve created that monster for themselves because they’ve caught everything low, high, side, side, they’ve caught everything.” In addition to catching everything, the two receivers have become an integral part in the running game because of their blocking. Despite their diminutive size compared to the opposition’s linebackers or safeties, Arizona wide receivers have to be able to block in order to keep a spot in the lineup and help the offense move the ball. “A lot of people probably don’t realize this, but we take blocking as seriously as a catch,” Roberts said. “A missed block is just as bad as a missed pass. One block could be the difference between a touchdown and a four-yard gain. We take blocking very seriously and it’s something we pride ourselves on.” Blocking is the most physical thing an offensive player can do on the football field, but most wide receivers are at a disadvantage because of their size. Douglas, 6-foot-1, and Roberts, 6-feet, use a mental edge to help block defenders that can be anywhere from 6-foot-2 to 6-foot-6. “That (mental edge) is so big,” Roberts said, pun intended. “It’s a mentality, not many guys can do it that’s probably why

we pride ourselves on it. It’s got to be a deal where you have to make that block so you go in there ready to fight for it.” Having these two players as dependable all-purpose receivers is crucial for any quarterback, but they will never be more needed than now with Matt Scott at quarterback. Some have speculated that the wide receivers will become less important considering Scott’s tendency to run, but according to Chachere it’s quite the opposite. “They become more important,” Chachere said. “You can’t be one dimensional, not in this league. If you’re running the ball a lot and teams know you’re running the ball, you’re in trouble. The receivers will be there for Matt and the passes will be there. Matt can run, but he also is a very good passer.” Whether their numbers dip, rise or stay the same with Scott at quarterback, Chachere believes that the offense just wouldn’t be the same without Douglas or Roberts, regardless of who’s playing quarterback. “They do a great job, and we couldn’t do it without those two receivers,” Chachere said. “Those guys keep the chains moving all the time and that’s what quarterbacks rely on.”
