Students vaccinate homeless

UA-Tucson group collaboration provides medical services to those in need By Brenna Goth ARIZONA DAILY WILDCAT More than 300 of Tucson’s homeless and underserved will be protected against influenza this year, thanks to the UA Student Health Advisory Committee. The UA Student Health Advisory Committee, in collaboration with El Rio Community Health Center, established its first vaccination clinic at Hope Fest on Saturday. Hope Fest is an annual gathering of community and governmental organizations held at Tucson Electric Park. The event provides medical services, dental services, haircuts, clothing, food and other resources to the homeless and underserved community. The Student Health Advisory Committee purchased 310 influenza vaccines for the event, which were administered by registered nurses. Committee volunteers at Hope Fest led attendees to various medical services, including vision screenings, blood pressure testing and diabetes testing. The committee also donated 2,400 cans of food, clothing and books to the event. “What we’re doing for (the underserved) is making so much of a difference,” said pre-physiology freshman Lucy Shi, the grants,

donations and fundraising chair for Student Health Advisory Committee. “I’m going to remember this experience for the rest of my life.” Emile Gordon, co-director of Student Health Advisory Committee and a junior majoring

in microbiology, molecular and cellular biology, and human physiology and anatomy, began planning the initiative over the summer. He originally wanted to vaccinate the homeless at local shelters but was stopped by legal restrictions. The committee

collaborated with El Rio Community Health Center, who participated in Hope Fest in the past, to introduce the service. “It was a lock-and-key fit,” Gordon said. SHOTS, page 3

Four Loko comes in eight flavors, contains 12 percent alcohol and is less than $3. This alcoholic energy drink popular among students can be more harmful to a person’s body than a beer or cocktail, officials say. Lee Ann Hamilton, assistant director of Health Promotion and Preventive Services for Campus Health Service, said a standard 12-ounce beer has a 4 to 6 percent alcohol content, while a 4 or 5 ounce glass of wine is generally less than 12.5 percent. Hamilton explained that a 23.5-ounce can of Four Loko equals 5.6 standard drinks because it contains 2.88 ounces of pure ethanol. In comparison, a can of Keystone Light has a half-ounce of pure alcohol, around one-sixth the typical amount of a Four Loko. Hamilton said those who drink FOUR LOKO, page 3

Members of Theta Tau fraternity present their float, based on the sci-fi film “Back to the Future,” to students and alumni during the UA Homecoming parade on Saturday. Theta Tau will likely take the win for the 12th consecutive year in the 2010 float competition.

Float building binds greeks By Lucy Valencia ARIZONA DAILY WILDCAT Professional engineering fraternity Theta Tau will most likely take home the first prize trophy for the 12th consecutive time for the best Homecoming float this Saturday, students say. Theta Tau built their unique float based on the “Back to the Future” movies as part of this year’s Homecoming theme “One for the Ages.” “It’s kind of hard to compete with them,” said Steven Spithogiannis, a communication major and member of Pi Kappa Alpha fraternity, “They’re an

engineering fraternity and have really unique designs.” Like most other UA Greek Life members, Pi Kappa Alpha members were busy with many other Homecoming events and festivities throughout the week but worked on the floats from Oct. 18 up to the day of the parade. On Wednesday, Pi Kappa Alpha — who worked in collaboration with Kappa Kappa Gamma sorority — was halfway done. “We have the main part and framework finished, we just need the decorations,” Spithogiannis said on Wednesday. “The most important thing to us is the Homecoming float because it

represents who you are as a fraternity, as an organization and how hard of workers you are.” Spithogiannis worked with Sean Meritt, a psychology senior, to design their float. They decided to add 10 people to “hype people up and cheer along with the crowd,” as they rode on the float during the parade. Five were from Pi Kappa Alpha and five were from Kappa Kappa Gamma. “We wanted some of the younger guys to be on there, to get them more involved,” Spithogiannis said. “It’s a tradition that passes on, and it’s important to include freshmen in

the pledge process because it gets them more involved.” The most difficult part of the building process for the fraternity was designing the float and actually finding time to get members working on it, Pi Kappa Alpha members said. “We’ve been building all day the best that we can,” said Carsen Kipley, an engineering management freshman and new member of Pi Kappa Alpha who rode on the float. “I’m glad to be there, and I’m doing it all for the school spirit. We’re proud to be Arizona Wildcats.”

The ASUA Pride Alliance will be holding free HIV testing on campus today from 1 p.m. to 4 p.m. The Southern Arizona AIDS Foundation will do the testing and provide results within 20 minutes. “Sexual education is extremely important, and it’s hard to have safe practices if you don’t know what your status is,” said Derek Knocke, a psychology major and intern for the Associated Students of the University of Arizona Pride Alliance. “The goal is to increase people’s awareness and have them be aware of what their HIV status is.” This will be the third year that free HIV testing will be offered on the UA campus, according to Jai Smith, the co-director of ASUA Pride Alliance. The ASUA Pride Alliance has been sponsoring the tests for the last two years and adapted the service from the Women’s Resource Center, which provided it for one year. At this event, participants can expect confidentially, professionalism and a relaxed setting. If an individual’s status does come back positive, there will be professionals on site who will be waiting to assist with the resources and materials needed. “It is a wonderful opportunity, completely free and it takes all of 20 minutes,” Knocke said. “Everyone should come down and get their status updated.”

News Tips

Kendra Desler


sophomore majoring in political science and Spanish What is one particular thing from the movie “Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory” that you wish was real? There’s so many. I’d say the river of chocolate, just because that would be really fun to swim in. So if you had a Nerds Rope and a piece of chocolate, what would you chose? Oh, chocolate, definitely. That’s my weakness, chocolate and ice cream. So you are a Hersey’s girl rather than a Wonka girl? Yeah, I like it dark. What are the top three things you are hoping to receive when you go trick or treating this year? Oh man, do I get to trick or treat? Am I too old for that? No, no. OK, Reese’s. I’m kind of weird. I like the Mounds. I am kind of a grandma with my candy. I really like Junior Mints. I get the old school, good stuff. Have you been to any of those haunted places like (The) Slaughter House? I haven’t been to any of those but we have this thing back at home that is like a haunted corn maze. I am missing it right now; it is really fun. They make like a pattern in the corn maze like a wolf or a scary guy. But anyways, they have these guys that hide out and chase you, but they aren’t allowed to touch you. No, it’s really scary. Have you seen “Signs”? I am kind of a wimp with scary movies, I cry. What is the scariest movie you’ve ever watched? OK, this is really embarrassing but I watched “The Grudge,” with my dad and he fell asleep so I had to go wake my mom up and have her walk me upstairs. “The Grudge” is pretty bad. I hate the scary movies that could be real. Have you had any reallife scary experiences lately? Lately, no, but one time me and my friend decided to go up on this hill back home in Oregon and there is a cemetery up there, and we had a walkie-talkie with us, because her dad wanted to get a hold of us. So we were looking at this one grave and her dad came on the walkie-talkie and was like “See any dead people yet?” We just lost it and started running. — Caroline Nachazel

Former Daily Wildcat photographer Jake Lacey proposes to his girlfriend of two-and-a-half years, Shellie Davis, Saturday in front of the Berger Memorial Fountain in front of Old Main. The two, who met as resident assistants at Graham-Greenlee Residence Hall, returned to campus for Homecoming weekend. Davis said “yes.”

New supercomputer to boost weather forecasting

Jokes about inaccurate weather forecasts are as popular as jokes about doughnut shops and the police, but advances in satellite data and computers have dramatically improved climate science in the past 50 years. And there will soon be a brand new supercomputer available to government scientists aimed at improving forecasts, whether just a few hours out or decades into the future. The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration’s recent ribbon-cutting ceremony in Fairmont, W.Va., marked the future home of the NOAA Environmental Security Computing Center (NESCC),

a $27.6 million, 54,000-squarefoot facility expected to be fully operational by fall 2011. NESCC will be used to improve the accuracy of existing computer models and to develop new systems. “NOAA is committed to developing climate models that are scientifically credible, wellvetted and capable of making predictions and projections of Earth’s climate variations and change over a broad range of time scales,” V. Ramaswamy, director of NOAA’s Geophysical Fluid Dynamics Laboratory. “The issues to be addressed include the seasonal-to-decadalto-multidecadal time scales

and extremes, with the models being underpinned by the advancements in scientific knowledge and making use of NOAA and other observations.” In addition to developing these long-term climate models, existing weather forecast models will undergo improvements, said Stephen Lord, director of NOAA Environmental Modeling Center, adding that the new computer facility “will be extremely useful in developing new systems.” Current systems include the GFS (Global Forecast System) and the CFS (Climate Forecast System). —AOLNews

Families appreciate free services, volunteers help tame tempers

Gordon had never participated in the event but was impressed by its mission. “I couldn’t believe it,” Gordon said. “Not one organizer gets paid.” Several grants and money from the Associated Students of the University of Arizona funded the vaccinations, which cost about $13 each. The committee hopes to provide an increasing number of vaccinations each year. “On the whole, I think it helps a lot of people,” Gordon said. “We want to make this an annual endeavor.” The vaccinations also benefit the rest of the population by preventing the spread of the illness. “We’re definitely helping out the community in general,” Shi said. “We’ve targeted such a bigger scope than the number of vaccinations.” Yaritza Vazquez, 14, came to Hope Fest with her cousins. “We came with our parents because they needed to get their teeth fixed,” Vazquez said. The family used many of the resources at the event.

“We got food and diapers and stuff,” said Ashley Candelario, 17. Vazquez used some of the medical services, including the influenza vaccine provided by Student Health Advisory Committee. “I’m getting my vision screening and flu shot,” she said, “To not get sick.” Vazquez said she appreciated the free services. “It’s pretty cool,” Vazquez said. Hope Fest provides many other medical resources for the homeless and underserved. All services are donated by local organizations. “They can get (the services) elsewhere, but this is an opportunity to get a variety of services at the same time,” said Dale Berg, campus director for Pima Medical Institute. The institute has participated in Hope Fest for several years and serves between 500 and 700 patients each time. Berg said individual attention is crucial in health care. “With the one-on-one student involvement, we see less tempers,” Berg said. “They have someone helping

them through this maze.” Shi said students also learned from the experience. “We’re talking to them and getting a human connection behind this whole experience.”

The float featured paper flowers painted on the side and a wooden replica of Old Main. Kipley said it was relatively simple for fraternities and sororities to work together on floats. “We worked pretty well together (with Kappa Kappa Gamma),” he said. “They did the more girly stuff, and we did the wood work and building.” Pi Kappa Alpha purchased the wood at Home Depot, while Theta Tau got wood donations from local wood distributors. The float was still in construction as they worked hard to perfect every last detail on Saturday, minutes before the parade. Members gathered near the University of Arizona Police Department station at 2:15 p.m., ready to get on board. “We just did it all for the Wildcat pride,” Spithogiannis said. “It was a lot of fun, we all enjoyed ourselves … and it’s one of the best parts of Homecoming.”

Some people buy a dozen at a time he said. “I think it is because of the alcohol content, (students) just wanna get drunk,” Hayman said.

Four Loko might experience nervousness and agitation, as well as possible impairment of judgment, motor and muscle control. A person with a light build could easily black out from having one of these drinks, she said. However, blacking out does depend on several factors, some being weight, gender, time and concentration of alcohol consumed. “A woman who weighs 120 pounds would have a blood-alcohol concentration of 0.217, almost three times the legal limit of 0.08 after drinking just one can of Four Loko,” she said. “That BAC (blood-alcohol content) is easily high enough to cause a blackout.” Hamilton added that a woman with that blood-alcohol content would be over 100 times more likely than a sober person to cause a fatal accident if driving a car. A bit more alcohol and she would be at a 0.30 BAC level, where many people lose consciousness and pass out she said. The drink is produced by Phusion Projects LLC and headquartered in Chicago, Ill. It is part of the brand “Four,” a line of two caffeinated alcoholic beverages that also includes Four MaXed. Current estimates show Phusion Projects, a private company categorized under wholesale liquors, has annual revenue of $1 million. Students say they drink Four Lokos because it is inexpensive and gets them intoxicated easily. Dustin Dye, a business major, said he

Celebrity and political status: separate and not equal Storm Byrd


Arizona Daily Wildcat

hy do we care about the Palin family? Why is it that Sarah Palin is plastered all over television and newsprint, when her only notable accomplishment is running on a losing ticket in the last presidential election? She doesn’t currently hold a political seat, nor is she running for one. She’s essentially a highly glamorized political analyst (although calling Sarah Palin an analyst makes about as much sense as calling extreme right-wing radicals the Tea Party). How did she go from unable to garner the female vote in 2008, to suddenly relevant again? I guess if Eliot Spitzer can go from governor of New York to “Client-9” to political analyst, why can’t Palin go from governor of Alaska to “Don’t ya know” to political relevance? How is it that Palin’s daughter Bristol is a “star” and featured on the ABC show “Dancing with the Stars”? Who in the world defines stardom and celebrity these days, and exactly when did being the daughter of a former politician make you a star? What happened to the good old days when you had to release a sex tape and/or have a famous parent to ease you into stardom (I’m looking at you Paris Hilton and Kim Kardashian)? The least Bristol Palin could do is date a famous football player or something. The attention that America pays to these so-called celebrities is embarrassing and flat-out mind numbing. Now Palin has a reality TV show, “Sarah Palin’s Alaska,” where she can whip out more classic lines, finger gestures and winks. Has American life become so dull that we subject ourselves to such nightmares? What’s worse is that the baby daddy of Palin’s grandson, Levi Johnston, is also pitching a television show of his own, in which he will seek her former seat as Mayor of Wasilla, Alaska. That’s exactly what I want to watch, a 20-year-old guy with no political experience running for political office. In defense of the show, if Johnston did manage to pull it off, every 19-year-old political science student with aspirations of public office will tune in. If Johnston can win a political position, then most of us 19-year-old poli-sci majors are only one year and a pregnant girlfriend away from a life-long dream come true. Sarah Palin doesn’t deserve half of the notoriety that she receives. Why in the world is she becoming a source of political thought and discourse? There are plenty of other Republican leaders out there with a higher intellect and a much stronger understanding of the Republican platform. Please allow them to speak and pay them the respect they deserve. America needs to stop with the fanatic behavior and stop paying attention to someone just because they want to hear what ridiculous nonsense they will say next. When Sen. John McCain first announced that he would have Sarah Palin as his running mate, Republicans scratched their heads and said “who?” and Democrats accused McCain of trying to win over Hillary Clinton supporters by running with a woman. Those were the good old days. Let’s return to such a time. Please, America: Allow the Palins to fade into the black hole of irrelevance from whence they came. — Storm Byrd is a political science sophomore.

‘Mental health awareness’ isn’t pretty Heather Price-Wright Arizona Daily Wildcat


mericans love a lot of weird things: the KFC Double Down, “Keeping Up With the Kardashians,” and “tweeting” things, to name a few. But one of the weirdest American obsessions is with “awareness” months. Take October: This month marks, among a host of other issues, Breast Cancer Awareness Month and Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Transgender History Month. Of course, supporting breast cancer research and celebrating the civil rights strides of the LGBT community are important, even if it is odd to relegate these pursuits to a mere 31 days. October also marks National Mental Health Awareness Month, which is built around World Mental Health Day, sponsored by the World Federation for Mental Health. But for all October’s hype surrounding breast cancer awareness and LGBT rights, mental health awareness barely gets mentioned, in October or otherwise. That’s because, for all their love of awareness months both bogus and serious, Americans squirm uncomfortably at the idea of the mentally ill. When many people think of mental illness, they envision television commercials touting anti-depressants. In those ads, attractive people pout and rub their temples in hazy, poorly lit settings. Then a magic pill makes the attractive people smile, play with a dog and turn on some lights. It’s easy and awesome. Those commercials, and therefore most people’s idea of mental illness, are

seriously flawed in a number of ways. For one thing, it’s obviously not that simple to treat depression, a serious affliction affecting millions of people. Few sufferers find the perfect medication and buy a beautiful golden retriever overnight. The larger flaw, though, is the idea that most mentally ill people are privileged enough to seek treatment for their ailments. In reality, the face of mental illness is often ugly and scary. Homeless shelters and correctional facilities are overflowing with seriously sick human beings, who couldn’t get help for their mental illnesses if their lives depend on it — which often, tragically, is the case. In the last two days, three people have been killed in officer-involved shootings in Tucson. At least two of those people have been characterized as mentally ill; one had recently been released from the Arizona State Hospital, according to an Oct. 24 report in the Arizona Daily Star. In all three cases, the men pulled weapons on law enforcement officers, at which point those officers shot and killed them. Fault does not lie with the police who fired; they did what they had to do to protect themselves and their fellow officers. The tragedy lies in the fact that these men, who were clearly disturbed, had to die at the hands of law enforcement officials rather than receive the help they so desperately needed. Joseph E. Molina, the victim in one of the shootings, had a long history with the Arizona criminal justice and mental health

care systems. He was diagnosed last year with paranoid schizophrenia, at which point he had already had several run-ins with the law, according to the Daily Star. He was arrested for hijacking a city bus in 2009, a crime he claimed voices in his head had told him to do. After bouncing back and forth between jail and the state hospital, Molina was released in August. It is speculated that he ran out of his psychiatric medication; defendants are provided with just five days’ worth of medication when they’re released from jail, and told they must continue treatment on their own, the Daily Star reported. But people like Molina, people who are fighting not just poverty and a criminal record, but voices in their heads and a host of terrifying phobias and paranoid thoughts, are incapable of seeking help on their own. If someone, whether it be a social worker, parole officer or just good Samaritan, had followed up with Molina and helped him get the medication and treatment he needed, perhaps his life could have been saved. The officer who shot him would have been spared the responsibility of killing another human being. Mental illness isn’t clear cut or easy. The mentally ill are often dangerous, unstable people that many feel aren’t deserving of our help or attention. They’re stigmatized and marginalized because their minds work in ways mentally healthy people can’t comprehend. Mental Health Awareness month is a shiny, PR-friendly response to an ugly and pervasive problem. Because in reality, most Americans don’t want to be aware of mental illness and those afflicted with it. They’d rather be far, far away from it. — Heather Price-Wright is the opinions editor of the Daily Wildcat. She can be reached at

MAILBAG Libertarian candidate worth watching

I just read Brett Haupt’s article (“Thirdparty candidate made debate worthwhile”) regarding the Congressional District 8 debate and he is spot on. He was able to write exactly how I felt watching this “debate.” Gabby (Giffords) is a slick liar, Jesse (Kelly) was smirky and Steve (Stoltz) was rather uncomfortable to watch. He does need a public speaking class, but you have to admit that he did have some intelligent things to say, when he could actually get the words out. Public speaking is tortuous for many people and not an indication of how intelligent someone is. Check out his website and read what he believes in but couldn’t articulate. Marsha Carter Tucson Resident

Debate analysis revealed bias

I found Brett Haupt’s article extremely biased. He is obviously a liberal with little or no real “life experience” on which to base his juvenile commentary. He claims to be “on the fence”, but his article paints

him as anything but. In his first paragraph, he refers to Mr. Kelly’s comments as “snide.” At least his prejudice is on display early. He mentions that he is bitter toward politics. Exactly how many elections has he participated in? How much in taxes has he paid? How many businesses has he built? How many years did he spend in service to this country in uniform? It is so disingenuous and infantile to say he is bitter. Bitter at what, 20 years old? Perhaps those of us on social security who saw our benefits frozen while Congress gave themselves a raise ought to be bitter. Haupt tells us that clearly Giffords has the most information about Southern Arizona. Her “actual voting record” would indicate the exact opposite. In fact she resides in Houston with her astronaut husband and does not even live in her district. What she knows is to follow Nancy Pelosi and vote with her the majority of the time, against the majority of the voters in this district. While the federal government was roasting Arizona over S.B. 1070, she sat silently by and did nothing and said nothing to stand up for her constituents. Those are the facts, not opinions or

conjecture or feelings. She is extremely leftist in her voting,nd this country does not need extremism on either the right or the left. Haupt insinuates (just like Giffords) that there is something illegal, immoral or disingenuous for a private company to do work for the government. There are literally thousands of companies that do business with the government. How many construction companies took stimulus money? How many banks? How many universities? I’d rather see small American businesses get their tax dollars back, being of service to the public, than giving the money to foreign entities, big banks, universities and big investment firms. He wraps up this piece of unbiased professional journalism by swearing (bullshi_). And then, my oh my, he proffers to give voting advice backed by years of wisdom and discernment. Sorry, I’ll pass. This article may play well on campus, but anyone over the age of 21 will see it for what it is; the rantings of a liberal college undergrad with a self-important opinion.

omecoming 2010 celebrated the UA’s 125th anniversary. The university welcomed alumni, community members and students for a weekend filled with events, including a bonfire in front of Old Main, a pep rally, the crowning of the Homecoming king and queen, and the Homecoming parade. As a fitting end to the weekend, the Wildcats pounced on the University of Washington Huskies. In a battle of cats versus dogs, the Wildcats dominated the Huskies 44-14. This came as a refreshing change of pace for Arizona football, giving the program its first 6-1 season start since the team’s best year in 1998.

Hit-and-run at stop sign leaves BMW bumper bashed

A UA student’s black BMW was rear-ended at a stop sign on Oct. 18. The other vehicle fled the scene before she could get the license plate number. The student said the driver was a woman, and that she was driving a red and black car. A University of Arizona Police Department officer responded to the sorority house, where the woman that was rear-ended lived, at 5:20 p.m. She indentified herself with a driver ’s license and explained that she had been traveling south in her black BMW on Vine Avenue. She stopped at the stop sign and felt another car hit the back of her car. The woman got out to check and noticed a red car with a black top behind her, being driven by a college-age woman.The student said she made a hand motion for the driver to follow her onto First Street. When the other woman got in her car, she turned west at a high speed and continued southbound so the woman could not get her license plate number or any other driver description. The woman said there were several other people in the area, but no one had any information for her. She also said she was not injured in the accident. The officer looked at the BMW and noticed red paint across the lower part of the rear bumper, with scratches to the paint. Both the rear exhaust pipes were bent downward at different angles. There were also white paint markings on the upper part of the back bumper and both outer sides. The student said that damage was from a previous accident. No other damage was found. The woman elected to pursue criminal charges if the other driver is found.

Firefighters fight flames in fraternity dumpster

A dumpster behind a fraternity on campus caught fire on Tuesday. At 11:16 p.m. that night, a UAPD officer who was patrolling the area observed a large amount of smoke coming from behind the house. He went behind the house and saw flames rising from inside a trash dumpster. The officer used the fire extinguisher in his patrol car and attempted to put out the flames while waiting for the Tucson Fire Department to arrive at the scene. TFD arrived and extinguished the flames. No evidence of a crime was found. The UAPD officer left a message with the city of Tucson in reference to the damage to the trashcan and cleared the scene without further incident.

Poverty a poor excuse for not paying fines

An officer pulled a car over for speeding while traveling west on Speedway Boulevard at about 11:20 a.m. on Tuesday. The officer measured the vehicle at 48 mph in a 35 mph zone. After pulling the driver over, the officer found out she had no insurance, but was able to give a license. A records check on that license showed it was suspended. The driver had ignored a photo radar ticket, saying she couldn’t pay her ticket because she was poor. The driver was cited and released.

No Foles, no problem Quarterback Matt Scott avoids Washington linebacker Mason Foster in Arizona’s 44-14 win over the Huskies at Arizona Stadium on Saturday. Scott filled in admirably for the injured Nick Foles, completing 18 of 22 passes and throwing two touchdowns. Mike Christy/ Arizona Daily Wildcat

Scott silences his critics

Junior erases poor history in win

COMMENTARY BY Tim Kosch sports editor


Scott, running backs carry the load in Foles’ absence By Mike Schmitz ARIZONA DAILY WILDCAT Arizona head coach Mike Stoops sat in the team hotel talking to quarterback Matt Scott on the eve of Saturday’s game against Washington. With Nick Foles out because of a knee injury, it was up to Scott to take the reins. “I told him, ‘Just be yourself, you don’t have to be anybody but that,’” Stoops said. “’You have talent, use your instincts.’”

Starting his first game since Sept. 19, 2009, the junior quarterback rose to the occasion and led the Wildcats to a dominating 44-14 win over the Huskies in front of a sold-out crowd at Arizona Stadium. Scott did it through the air and on the ground, completing 18 of his 22 passes for 233 yards and two touchdowns, while rushing for 65 yards on seven carries. “I think Matt did a great job being Matt Scott tonight,” Stoops said.

Soccer ends historic weekend with a loss ’Cats defeat Cal for first time in school history, fall to Stanford By Michael Fitzsimmons ARIZONA DAILY WILDCAT After a loss, coaches and players often look for the silver lining. For the Arizona Wildcats soccer team, the bright side of this weekend was the program’s first ever win against California, beating the Golden Bears 1-0 in overtime on Friday night before falling to No. 1 Stanford 3-0 on Sunday. Freshman Shannon Heinzler played hero against Cal (7-4-5, 2-31 Pacific 10 Conference), taking a

feed from senior Macke Mutz in the 99th minute, and sending a long strike that glanced off the hands of Cal’s goalkeeper and into the back of the net. “She was lucky,” head coach Lisa Oyen said of Heinzler’s first career goal. “Taking that shot was a risk, and it worked out for her, and us.” Heinzler’s heroics wouldn’t have been possible if not for a strong effort from Arizona’s defense and junior goalkeeper Ashley Jett who recorded SOCCER, page 8

Icecats split series at UNLV

Scott disproved the doubters, accounting for 298 of Arizona’s 467 total yards. After losing the starting job thanks to three sub-par starts in 2009, Scott showed he wasn’t just another four-star recruit that wasn’t going to pan out. “Coming off the Iowa game (last season) everybody was real skeptical about what I can do as a quarterback and I think I proved a little bit tonight,” Scott said. When asked if he was prematurely judged as a quarterback,

More than fanfare

Red/Blue scrimmage hints at maturing Wildcats By Kevin Zimmerman ARIZONA DAILY WILDCAT Maybe a glorified scrimmage can be telling after all. Following a dunk contest won by Brendon Lavender, Sean Miller publicly debuted his 2010-11 basketball team with two 12-minute halves of basketball in front of a McKale Center crowd of nearly 11,000 for the annual Red/Blue scrimmage. In the end, it was a perfect mix of fun for the fans and a never-take-aday-off attitude for the team as the Arizona Red team eeked out a 39-38 victory over the Arizona Blue team. “We played a lot harder this year,” sophomore Derrick Williams said, comparing it to his freshman year’s scrimmage. “It was more of a business.” In an intrasquad basketball practice catering toward the fans, the 2010 Red/Blue game hinted that Arizona basketball is growing up. Per their team slogan — some players wore undershirts with the word “Attack” across the back — the scrimmage opened with a fast, aggressive pace. “I think we’re attacking at the beginning of our practices,” Williams said. “We’re attacking practice a lot better.”

Big men going at it

Junior Blake Richards scored a second-period goal in the Icecats 4-3 win over UNLV on Saturday. The Icecats finished their seven-game road trip 3-4.

he said: “I’m not really sure on that. Hopefully they know now.” Scott helped Arizona achieve a 6-1 start to the season for the first time since 1998. With the victory, Arizona became bowl eligible for the third consecutive season. “He came a long ways, from his footwork, to his mechanics to his throwing motion,” said receiver Juron Criner, who finished with eight catches for 108 yards and a score. “Everything

he odds of a fan seeing a great quarterback at Arizona Stadium on Saturday night were pretty high. On one side you had Jake Locker, a player that could have gone No. 1 in the NFL Draft last year and is considered by many as one of the best quarterbacks in the country, and on the other side, you had Nick Foles, an up-andcoming national phenomenon that completes passes more frequently than Bruce Springsteen sings about New Jersey. Even Washington head coach Steve Sarkisian had a Hall of Fame-worthy career as a quarterback at Brigham Young University. Yet none of those guys could compete with the performance of Matt Scott, Arizona’s muchmaligned backup quarterback. In a word, Scott was fantastic. He made no mistakes, he was smart about when to run and when not to run, and for the first time in his career, he didn’t seem to get overwhelmed by the moment. Scott’s performance in Arizona’s 44-14 win over Washington was

Again expected to be the best player on the team, Williams asserted himself on both ends. He finished with 15 points and four rebounds. His three blocks and three steals were products of his activity on the defensive end. “I’d say probably just going to the camps that I went to this summer and playing with different players (helped me get better),” Williams said.. “Just playing against center Kyryl (Natyazhko) everyday, we go at each other a lot. I think just going at each other every day helps us out.” Williams kept the taller Natyazhko in check, forcing him into a 3-for-12 game. Two of those shots were from at least 15 feet. “Kyryl (Natyazhko) is having a hard time finishing close to the basket, and yet he’s making strong moves to get there,” Miller said. “The way he’ll play for us is he

can be a great screener and free his teammates. Some of the shots that he made from the perimeter might be a sign of things to come.”

Newcomers making their mark

Junior college transfer Jesse Perry and senior forward Jamelle Horne were matched up for the majority of the game. Energy is the name of the game for each — both finished with nine points and nine rebounds. Perry grabbed seven boards in the first 12 minutes, often taking the ball to the rim and hitting the offensive glass. “He didn’t finish some shots,” Miller said. “He’s a very aggressive player.” Meanwhile, Miller’s two freshmen guards showed promise.

Point guard Jordin Mayes showed a quick, unconscious trigger, hitting his first two shots — both 3-pointers — which came 19 seconds apart. He also impressed with his command and team play. “(Mayes) dished the ball a lot,” Williams said. “A lot of passes he made … I didn’t know he could make them.” Swingman Daniel Bejarano finished with three points.

Parrom and Jacobson recovering

Sophomore Kevin Parrom and junior Alex Jacobson sat out of the scrimmage due to injuries. Miller said Parrom suffered a concussion a week ago and Jacobson had trouble with back spasms. Both are expected to return to practice this week.

Former ’Cats fall to current ’Cats Largest alumnae turnout for Candrea’s annual event

Rodney Haas/Arizona Daily Wildcat

Former Wildcat Jennie Finch leads off first base behind first baseman Baillie Kirker during the Arizona Alumni game on Friday at Hillenbrand Stadium. The current Wildcats defeated the alumnae 5-1.

By Nicole Dimtsios Arizona Daily Wildcat It was all smiles for the members of the Arizona Alumni team despite being bested by their younger current Wildcat softball team 5-1 on Friday. “I think this is one of the larger numbers that we’ve had, and I think it’s a testament to what coach has built, and what we have here at Arizona softball,” said Jennie Finch after the game. Finch was one of 62 alumnae of the Arizona softball program that returned to the hollowed ground of Hillenbrand Stadium. The turnout was the largest in the program’s history of the Alumni game. “Great turnout by the alum. It gives our young kids a chance to see who paved the way for them and I think it’s important,” said head coach Mike Candrea. “Tradition, to me, is probably the most important part of any program, and we’ve been very fortunate because of the players to build a great tradition here.” Taryne Mowatt started the game for the Arizona Alumni and only gave up one hit, a homerun in the second inning that sailed over the outfield bleachers off the bat of Lini Koria. The solo shot gave the current players the lead, which they would never relinquish. “It was just a good pitch to hit and just amazing to hit off someone well-known and has legacies here at Arizona and has done so much,” Koria said. The current Wildcats scored four more runs in the fifth inning thanks to help from former

pitcher Jennifer Martinez’s inability to find the strike zone. Playing with the legends — and former teammates — of her current program was something that Koria said she appreciated. “It’s very overwhelming because you never really have a chance to see all of them and to see them play and knowing that they paved the path for us to be able to play this game still, it’s just great,” she said. Sophomore Kenzie Fowler started the game for the current Arizona players and gave up just three hits in two innings of work. She was relieved by Shelby Babcock, who gave up a solo homerun to former player and current volunteer assistant coach Candace Abrahms in the fifth inning. Candrea, however, said that the turnout by former players and fans was more important that the actual win. He called special attention to the 1991 and 2001 national championship teams in between innings. “This is what it’s all about, to be able to thank some great players for what they’ve done here,” Candrea said. “It’s like a proud dad, you know, really,” Candrea said. “In this day and age, it’s not often that you get to spend 25 years at one place and to be able to see the program grow and be a part of what we’ve done is pretty special. And to be able to bring them back, it’s better than a Christmas, it really is.” The Wildcats will pick up spring ball in February, and finished fall ball with a record of 8-1.

Upset win over Cal spoiled by loss against Stanford

her second clean sheet of the season. Jett made a clutch save in the 89th minute on a Cal ball that nearly found the top shelf of the goal before she denied it. A lot was made after the game on how Arizona played with a high level of energy for a full 90 minutes, something that Oyen and her staff have been harping for the whole year. “We’ve talked all season about having our best, most complete ninety minutes out there and this is definitely the most complete we’ve seen so far,” Oyen said. The Wildcats’ effort against Cal gave them a boost to set them up for a showdown with No. 1 Stanford on Sunday. Down 1-0 in the second half, Arizona (5-9-2, 1-4) to force the issue, appearing more aggressive and putting pressure on Stanford’s back four. “In the first half, a lot of it was, ‘Oh Stanford’s the number one team in the country, how are we going to play? How are we going to match up?’ By the end of the first half we saw that we could play with them and create chances,” Oyen said. The Wildcats had their chance to equalize in the second half when Heinzler drew a foul inside the box to give freshman Ana Montoya a shot to tie the game on a penalty kick. Montoya’s shot trickled wide left of the goal, and Stanford (15-0-2, 6-0 Pac-10) capitalized on the momentum swing to ice the game with two more quick goals. “It was definitely a tough loss, especially when you have the chance

to tie it up with a PK in the second half,” Oyen said. “Missing that kind of changes the momentum a little bit, and it took us a while to get back into a rhythm after that.” Despite the loss to the Cardinal, Sunday capped what Oyen called an overall positive weekend. “Cal was another team that had

been doing well nationally and in our conference, so you get some confidence from beating a team like that. Moving forward, we feel like we have a shot against any team we play, whether it be the number one team in the country, or the number 300 team in the country.”

Head coach Leo Golembiewski: ‘We could be 7-0’

seven-game season-opening road trip for the Icecats. “We could be 7-0 and that’s the difference between this team and the last couple years,” coach Leo Golembiewski said. “It’s hard to start out strong because of the lack of ice time, but we’ve lost all but one game by a goal. I’m pleased with the effort, I’m pleased with our team character and our team mix.” UNLV had a 2-0 lead early in the second period of Saturday night’s game. Arizona freshman Eric Watters scored his second goal of the season with 12:05 left, cutting the Rebels’ lead to 2-1. However, they scored again three minutes later to extend their lead to 3-1. Seven minutes into the third period, junior Blake Richards scored his second goal of the season to bring the Icecats within one goal of a tie. Golembiewski put a sixth attacker on the ice and left the net open with about two minutes left.

Then, with 12 seconds left, senior Jordan Schupan scored on an assist by sophomores Brian Slugocki and Nick Stolz to tie the game at three. One minute and 31 seconds into the five-minute-overtime, Slugocki scored his only goal of the weekend on a power play. It was his eighth goal of the season. Schupan and freshman Kevin Allen combined for the assist. “He keyed it up, and somehow it got under the goaltender,” Golembiewski said about the game-winning goal. “We take them any way you can get them, especially when you’re struggling to put the puck in the net.” Sophomore goaltender David Herman registered 41 saves to earn his second win of the year. Arizona out-shot the Rebels 47-44 in the game. Golembiewski said it was a great comeback and that only 17 players dressed for the game. In the first game, Arizona was

shut-out for the first two periods and most of the third, despite outshooting UNLV 54-43 in the game. “We hit the glass, we hit over the net,” Golembiewski said about the team’s shooting. “It wasn’t very productive. We weren’t hitting corners; we were hitting them into his chest or shooting them high and wide.” Freshman goaltender Steven Sisler had 39 saves but took his fourth loss of the season. Sophomore Jared Lowell put the Icecats on the board when he netted his fifth goal of the season with 29 seconds left in the game. Schupan assisted the goal for his 14th point of the year. The Icecats will practice twice this week and then return next Tuesday to prepare for their home opener. They will be off this weekend but will have their first home series Nov. 5-6 against Weber State University. Arizona hosts UNLV on Nov. 19-20.

SICK HAPPENS answers to your ques�ons about sex and rela�onships A human egg is one of the largest cells in the body – about 250 times larger than a white blood cell.


Can ovulation still occur while on the pill (taken consistently) and what happens to the egg if it does? Also, what happens if a pill is missed?

A. Yes, ovulation can occur while on the pill. More importantly, pregnancy can, too. Oral contraceptives are one of the most effective (99.7%) birth control methods available when the pills are taken exactly as prescribed. Unfortunately, no method guarantees perfect protection (only total abstinence is 100% effective). Sometimes, women taking oral contraceptives do get pregnant. In “perfect” pill users, the annual rate of pregnancy is 0.3% (meaning 3 women in every 1000 pill users will get pregnant each year). In “typical” pill users, the rate of pregnancy is 8% (representing the 80 women in 1000 that will get pregnant each year while on oral contraceptives). Most women fall somewhere in between perfect and typical use, depending on how meticulous they are about taking their medication. Once an egg is released, it continues its journey from the ovary, through the fallopian tube and into the uterus. If fertilization does not occur, the egg begins to disintegrate and is absorbed by the

body or swept away with the blood-rich lining of the uterus during menstruation. A human egg is 100-120 microns in diameter (smaller than the period at the end of this sentence). It would be very difficult to see without a microscope. Human sperm are even smaller at 5-7 microns in length. Birth control pills work three ways to prevent pregnancy: they stop ovulation, thicken cervical mucus, and make the uterine lining thin. Missing a pill increases the chances an egg may be released and can cause “spotting” (light bleeding). The more pills missed, the more likely you are to get pregnant. If you miss one pill, take the missed pill as soon as you can. If you miss two pills, take one of the missed pills and today’s pill, and finish the pack on schedule. Use a backup method such as condoms and spermicide for the next seven days. For more detailed instructions visit

Brilliant play-calling key to win over UW

continued from page 7

night and day compared to the quarterback that was too skittish in the pocket and too unsure of the offensive playbook to the point that it cost him his starting job after three games in 2009. But I don’t think anyone can describe Scott’s shocking performance as well as quarterback coach Frank Scelfo did after the game. “He’s a good player, I’m telling you, he’s a good player and I think what happened was that he was prejudged, and he lacked the maturity to handle it,� Scelfo said in defense of Scott. “The quarterback position, it’s brutal. From the fans, from the media, from the coaching staff, if the offense isn’t playing well, it’s the quarterback’s fault, and unless you have broad shoulders and a great deal of maturity, you can’t handle that and well, he didn’t have that last year.� Scelfo said Scott was finally able to tune out the critics and the doubters and finally focus on football. He’s the undisputed Robin to Foles’ Batman — the position still belongs to Foles — but his newfound maturity combined with the offensive coaching staff’s perfect game plan spelled big results for Scott and the Arizona offense. The offense didn’t undergo the total overhaul that some thought would happen. We didn’t see Georgia Tech’s triple-option offense, the running backs didn’t suddenly take the form of Jerome

Let your mind take off with

Bettis in his prime when he would just pound it up the middle and carry the offense, and Juron Criner still got his touches both down the field and on those customary Criner rocket screens — which, by the way, must be in the playbook as something along the lines of “let Criner be a beast.� The guy is 6-foot-4 with good hands and runs as hard as Brandon Jacobs did for the New York Giants back when he was good. The coaches have said for years that they trust Scott and think he can effectively run their offense. Scott did just that on Saturday, completing the highpercentage throws with ease and hanging in the pocket as if it was his childhood bedroom. We aren’t sure what this means moving forward. Foles will start when he’s ready, but that date, as of now, isn’t set. It could be as soon as this weekend against UCLA or as late as the USC game on Nov. 13. We also don’t know if Scott will be able to duplicate this performance if given the opportunity. He could play worse, he could play better — we don’t know enough about him to be able to firmly describe him. We thought he was appropriately pegged as a question mark (at best), but we’ve been proven wrong. Very wrong. But whatever his future is on the field, Scott proved on Saturday night that he can be counted on if needed. Turns out the coaches were right about him all along.


Defense dominates, shuts down Locker

continued from page 7

just came together good and he just pieced it all together and let it all show out.� But Scott wasn’t the only reason Arizona manhandled Jake Locker and the Huskies. Wildcats running back Keola Antolin ran all over the Washington defense to the tune of 114 yards and two scores, and Nic Grigsby also chipped in with two scores and 50 yards on the ground. The Wildcats knew they could run all over a porous Huskies defense, however, it was the way that Arizona stifled Locker that made the biggest difference. The Wildcats defense sacked Locker four times, while collecting eight tackles for a loss of 43 yards. The potential top5 draft pick finished the game 17 of 29 with one score and 183 yards through the air, but negative 24 yards on the ground. “I think me, Brooks (Reed) and D’Aundre (Reed) did a good job of not letting him run up the sides and so did the inside guys,� said defensive end Ricky Elmore. “We had a good team effort by everybody, not just one guy stood out tonight. Everyone played well to contain a player like him.� The Huskies struck first as Locker found wide receiver Jermaine Kearse for a 26-yard score less than four minutes into the game. But from that point on, it was

all Arizona. Scott found receiver David Roberts for a 17-yard score less than three minutes later and Alex Zendejas tacked on a 29yard field goal to make it 10-7 after the first quarter. Antolin scored twice in the second quarter, including a 78yard burst that took the air out of the Huskies defense. “Man, that was a long run,� Antolin said with a smile. “I felt like I was running forever. I just saw a hole, Nic (Grigsby) made a good block backside so I hit that backside and I was gone.� Grigsby followed up the Antolin run with Arizona’s fourth rushing touchdown of the game, which gave Arizona a 30-14 halftime lead. The Washington offense was nowhere to be found in the second half, while Scott and Arizona tacked on two more scores and coasted to a 30-point victory. There were a ton of questions heading into Saturday’s game. But Scott and the Wildcats proved they are still a force to be reckoned with, even without Foles, as they put together their most complete game of the season. “I’m happy and relieved,� Scott said on the field right after the game. “I’m happy to win this game. It feels great to be out here with a sold-out crowd and everything and just with my teammates. We played a great game today.�

FOLES INJURY UPDATE Matt Scott stole the show Saturday night, but Nick Foles wasn’t far from the action. In fact, one week after dislocating his knee, Foles was in uniform, able to warm up and even jogged out to the middle of the field for the coin toss. Foles seemed mobile and didn’t look at all hobbled by the injury, but head coach Mike Stoops said the Wildcats had no intention of playing the 6-foot-5, 245-pound quarterback. “We weren’t going to play Nick (Foles) tonight,� Stoops said after the game. “He wanted to warm up and do all that and be a part of the game, but he wasn’t an option tonight.� Although he was unable to play, Foles did serve as a support system for Scott who got his first start in the last 16 games. “He was talking to me the whole game, came up to me after every drive said ‘let’s go, let’s get another one’ and he was really excited,� Scott said of Foles. “He kept us in the game and gave us that competitive edge.� Foles is “close� to returning, according to Stoops, and the team will know more about his status Monday. But judging by how he looked warming up on Saturday, Foles shouldn’t be ruled out for the UCLA game this coming Saturday. Whether or not Foles returns, Scott feels like he earned some playing time moving forward. “Maybe just get in there, run some zone read and stuff,� Scott said of his role with Foles back. “And I can throw the ball as well, too, so maybe we can do that.� Stoops seemed to agree, saying, “It gives us another dimension.�

L.H. Brown, a doctoral student in choral conducting, conducts at a rehearsal for the UA Faculty/Staff Choir in the Music building on Thursday. The UA Faculty/Staff Choir was established in 1990.

Faculty and staff use lunch breaks to sing By Steven Kwan ARIZONA DAILY WILDCAT When someone shares a secret, it is usually assumed that you are not supposed to share it with anyone. Gail Cordy thinks otherwise. “We’re the best kept secret on campus, and we’re trying not to be a secret,” said Cordy, the president of the UA Faculty/ Staff Choir. The group practices every Monday and Thursday at 12:10 p.m. in room 106 of the Music building. Eight years ago, Cordy happened to catch the choir’s December performance at the UofA Bookstore. What hooked Cordy was the choir’s parody of “The Twelve Days of Christmas.” After asking one of her friends about the choir, Cordy decided to join. “It’s a great break during the day,” Cordy said. “I’ve been retired for four years. When I was working here on campus, I would come during the lunch hour for choir.” She used to work as a hydrologist for the U.S. Geological Survey on campus. “When you’re singing, you can’t really worry about anything else because you’re really focused on the sound you have to put out,” Cordy said. “So you can’t really worry about that report that’s due at the end of the week or whatever, you know — you just sing. So it was a great stress reliever for me and I think a lot of people find that.” Membership is open to all UA employees, including graduate students, former employees and retirees. “One of the unique things about our choir is that we don’t have any auditions or require anyone (to) have musical experience because we’re singing for fun,” Cordy said. “We all love to sing, so we don’t really focus on performance as much as just growing.” While this semester marks its 20th

anniversary, the choir faced an uncertain future 11 years ago. In August 1990, the School of Music sent announcements to UA faculty and staff about the creation of a new choir group. According to Steve Rodney, one of the original members, the school wanted the choir to be a training ground for its graduate student conductors. Four choirs were created to accommodate the number of interested members. The enthusiastic start could not be sustained, however. Within three years the four choirs, which had close to 150 members, shrank down to one. Membership reached as low as 15 at one point. In 1999, the School of Music decided to stop furnishing a conductor. “After the music department no longer provided conductors, we had to start from scratch,” Rodney said. “So there was this nucleus of people who started it up again. David (H. Nix, an attorney in the UA’s Office of the General Counsel) volunteered to be president to get the choir reorganized.” While it is not as big as the original groups, the choir has continued to perform at various venues and events on campus and around Tucson over the past decade. Many members often sing outside the choir or form their own groups. One memorable event was the first Rolling Requiem . “It was performed around the world on the one-year anniversary of 9/11,” Rodney said. “Three hundred and fifty of us sang in Centennial Hall at exactly 6:36 a.m. because that was when the first plane hit the tower. We all wore nametags of people who had died.” The choir does not yet have plans to celebrate its 20th anniversary, but it is preparing for its December concert. Cordy shared one song that they would be performing: Giuseppe Verdi’s “Anvil Chorus.”
