UA leaning toward privitization By Luke Money ARIZONA DAILY WILDCAT
Strategic realignment and possible privatization were heavily discussed at the meeting of the UA Faculty Senate on Monday. UA President Robert Shelton also spoke on redefining the state
universities’ relationship with the Arizona Legislature, both in terms of how state funding is allotted and how to determine policies and procedures that affect all three universities. “So we can keep on doing what we’re doing, being frustrated, or we can look for a new set of met-
rics, a new set of funding prescriptions that are based on outcomes as opposed to basically just counting noses,” Shelton said. He also addressed the relationship between the state and the universities. “What we’re looking at is whether we can redefine and gain more
independence, that can be a tricky word, from the state,” Shelton said, “not because we don’t love the state but because we think we can make our whole operation here more efficient.” Andy Silverman, a Faculty Senate member and clinical professor of law, asked Shelton if there was any
discussion regarding privatizing any of the UA’s academic efforts. Shelton responded that any discussions were happening internally, and the specifics would not be addressed until they were finalized. “I think we do need to look SENATE, page 5

Cory Johnson, a pre-physiology sophomore, donates blood on Thursday at Arizona-Sonora Residence Hall. Johnson said he has given blood six times because, as a pre-med student, he wants to help people.
Red Cross hopes to draw increased donors at blood drives By Brenna Goth ARIZONA DAILY WILDCAT Students looking to donate blood have more opportunities this year. The American Red Cross is aiming to increase its presence on campus. “We are just trying to make a concerted effort,” said Debra Deininger, communications and marketing manager for the Arizona Blood Services Region of the American Red Cross. “So students have more choices as of when to donate.” Deininger said the American Red Cross is looking for new clubs and organizations interested in
sponsoring blood drives. The organization has already scheduled six blood drives in October and six in November. The Associated Students of the University of Arizona is kicking off October efforts with the ZonaZoo Blood Drive sponsored by the American Red Cross. Its goal is to recruit 255 donors over Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday of this week, according to Deininger. Organizers said the Wednesday and Thursday appointments were booked full a week in advance. “We’ve actually had a great response from students this year,” said nutritional sciences senior Krista Udd, community development
blood drive coordinator for ZonaZoo. “We haven’t had to push hard.” Hillary Davidson, associate executive director of ZonaZoo and a marketing junior, said ZonaZoo’s large fan base helps the success of blood drives. “We are fortunate enough to have such a wide base of students,” Davidson said. “We can recruit easier than other clubs.” Deininger said the UA is the only entity in Tucson the American Red Cross visits several times a month. Donors must wait eight weeks between donations, so the

U.S. Secretary of Education Arne Duncan participated in a conference-call interview with student journalists from around the country to discuss the Get Schooled program and how to make college more affordable. The program is offering the “Get Schooled College Affordability Challenge,” a national competition that challenges students to come up with innovative ways to further simplify the financial aid process. The winner of that competition will receive a $10,000 prize and will have their idea developed by MTV and the College Board with up to $100,000 in funding. Duncan cited recent increases in the Federal Pell Grant Program as evidence of the Obama administration’s commitment to affordability for higher education. “We did all this huge massive investment without going back to taxpayers for a nickel,” Duncan said. Duncan addressed Obama’s goal for the United States to once again have the highest proportion of college graduates in the world by the year 2020, calling it the “North Star” of his administration’s education goals. He also talked about simplifying the Free Application for Federal Student Aid for this next year, saying the older form represented a barrier for financial aid access. “We think this will significantly remove one of the biggest barriers going on to college,” Duncan said. “We’re EDUCATION, page 3

Democrats rally at UA, bash Brewer By Lívia Fialho ARIZONA DAILY WILDCAT Attorney General Terry Goddard, Democratic gubernatorial candidate, kicked off the Young Democrats rally with a short speech on tuition, the education deficit during Gov. Jan Brewer’s administration and university budgets. “Working together, I know we can get out of this mess,” Goddard said on the UA Mall on Monday. Goddard also took a shot at his Republican opponent for not holding any more debates. UA alumnus and Democratic U.S. Senate candidate Rodney Glassman focused his speech on job opportunities for Arizona and education. Bringing back jobs to Arizona is a focus, Glassman said. “The
number-one issue right now for all of us: jobs.” According to him, more job opportunities need to be created in the state so people stay in Arizona after they graduate from college. He also referred to his opponent, Republican Sen. John McCain by saying, “Four decades in Washington for one guy is enough.” Chris Campas, president of the Young Democrats, the campus organization who brought the idea of the rally to the Goddard camp, said it was “an incredibly important event.” A Democratic tent was set up next to the stage, giving voter registration information to students on the last day to register. The rally was meant to build RALLY, page 5

Birthday wish for Drake
New question: Do you donate blood regularly?
education sophomore So are you getting excited for Family Weekend, seein’ the ‘rents? No, they’re actually not. I kind of told them not to. Why? I mean they did come this past weekend because it is my birthday this week. So I told them not to come the weekend, like, after my birthday so I could party and stuff. Oh, so you’ve substituted party for family in this upcoming celebratory weekend? Yeah basically, I mean it’s my birthday so they totally understand. And what is the number one thing on your birthday wish list this year? Well, I asked for sneakers and I got really, really cool sneakers so I am pretty pleased. Uh-oh, what kind of sneakers? Some purple Jordans, really hot. I am obsessed with Jordans. Wow, I love Nikes and my favorite color is purple so we should probably be best friends. Can we please be best friends? That would be amazing. If you could pick anyone in the world, dead or alive, to be at your birthday party, who would it be? Oh this is so hard, probably Drake. He is just, I am literally obsessed with him. I have every single one of his songs on my iPod. So you have a good 500 songs on your iPod under the name of Drake? Yeah, pretty much. And what is it about Drake that makes you crazy? Better yet, what is it about you that differentiates you from the thousands of girls that would invite Drake to their birthday party? Well, not only do I think he is very attractive, I think he is one of the most smartest rappers ever and his words are just so clever they just … how do I say it? Complete you? No, well yeah, but they are just so amazing. He is just going to become bigger everyday and become even more clever with every new song. Did you ever think that when we you were watching “DeGrassi” you were watching your future husband? I always thought he was attractive but when it was outted that he was a rapper and when he started becoming big, I completely fell in love. So you were pretty shocked to hear “Best I Ever Had” on the radio especially because you didn’t think he would release his first single about you, right? Exactly. That song was specifically written for me and I know it. I just know it. — Caroline Nachazel

Microsoft hopes to bury iPhone, Android with Windows Phone 7 Last month, a few hundred Microsoft Corp employees acted out their fantasy with a mock funeral for iPhone by Apple Inc. at its Redmond, Wash., campus. The bizarre gathering, which morphed into a spirited Michael Jackson “Thriller” dance routine, marked the completion of its Windows Phone 7 software, and showed how badly Microsoft wants to resurrect itself in the viciously competitive phone market. The new software, which will be
publicly unveiled on Oct. 11 and is expected to be on handsets in stores by November, is Microsoft’s last chance, some analysts say, to catch up with Apple and Google Inc.’s Android smartphones, after squandering its strong market position in only a few years. A group of smartphone manufacturers, including Samsung and HTC Corp., are expected to roll out Microsoft-based phones for the holiday season. Whether they will be good
enough to render the iPhone obsolete is the question. “The product can’t be an also-ran that just does every thing that is already out in the marketplace,” said Bryan Keane, an analyst for Alpine Mutual Funds, which holds Microsoft shares. ”Right now, it isn’t apparent that Windows 7 is better than anything that’s out there, except that it might have a better tie-in to the actual Windows platform.” — Reuters

Rodney Glassman visits UA, pushes higher education efforts for Arizona
Q&A with UA alumnus, Arizona’s Democratic candidate for U.S. Senate of a sudden there’s more money for professors, there’s more capital available to spread out for the fixed cost of the university, and so it’s going to keep tuition lower. Because we’re going to have more revenue coming in so it’s not just students paying in order to keep the doors open. The other big thing is the state. We have to have a senator who is a champion for our universities, setting the tone for the state legislature. The state legislature has demonstrated a complete lack of commitment to our universities and to have a U.S. Senator who they respect, who they work with and who says this is an important priority to our state, because this is a direct tie between having strong universities and economic development. Businesses are excited to go to communities where they can have access to a strong work force, and we have a strong work force coming from our universities, but we don’t tie it enough in with our economic development, and I think that’s a really important component as well. I’ve been through five degrees, five sets of friends that majority of which leave Arizona because
By Michelle A. Monroe Arizona Daily Wildcat What are your specific goals for (education in) Arizona in the Senate? This is no champion for the public school system in our U.S. Senate. For higher ed, one of the biggest issues that we’re going to have is access to loans so that kids can go to school now … it’s actually not even just a kid thing anymore; it’s so people can get their education. The access to loans is a significant issue. It makes me really sad that some people can’t afford to go to school simply because they can’t access the resources to do it. We should have a US senator who is going to be a champion for our research institutions. There are a ton of grants, competitive and otherwise. There’s a ton of appropriations. Those dollars … that are available for senators and congresspeople to go to Washington, D.C., and request for any program across the university that’s doing research, the sciences area, even in the social sciences … We have to have a senator bringing those dollars home. When those dollars come home, all
they have to go elsewhere, so I really see leveraging the university as an economic development tool and tying those two together as something that’s really important, and that’s something I would do as a member of the U.S. Senate. (Do you support) an increase of junior colleges to prepare students for universities? We need to have our university systems working with our community colleges to make sure that there’s more educational opportunities available but that people are able to eventually go in and get their terminal degree from one of our universities. When the university system was set up it was designed to be stratified with NAU offering certain courses, with ASU having a much larger base of students and then the University of Arizona being the research campus, and somewhere along the way we lost that focus as a state, and now all three universities are working to be all things to all people as resources become scarcer. We really need to be focusing on different campuses offering different opportunities.

EDITORIAL AZ Dems: Show your constituents some respect
undreds of students streaming across the UA Mall on Monday afternoon failed to stop and listen to a series of stump speeches from Arizona Democratic candidates. While most candidates focused their attention on the students and other supporters who turned up for the rally, State Senate hopeful Paula Aboud had a message for those who weren’t on the Mall for the express purpose of hearing what she and her fellow Democrats had to say. “If you’re walking by and not coming to this rally, you don’t care about the state of Arizona,” she chastised passersby. Aboud’s rude, overblown comment rounded out a series of possibly wellmeaning, but patronizing and uninspiring performances from state Democrats. Almost every candidate’s speech made some reference to a stereotype of UA students, a weird conglomeration of assumptions Democrats seem to have decided represents their target audience. When the crowd did not cheer loudly enough to suit him, Rodney Glassman, who hopes to supplant John McCain in the U.S. Senate, scolded, “We could go to class if we wanted to sleep — we don’t need to be doing it out here.” Chris Deschene, who is running for secretary of state, delivered a smart, measured address about the duties of the position and how he hopes to fulfill them. Then, as if remembering a talking point, he added a non sequitur story about attending UA pep rallies in his ASU T-shirt. “You guys know how to party,” he said. Other candidates spent half their speeches making jabs at ASU or expressing their awkwardly phrased wish that the UA football team “beat the Beavers” at Saturday’s game against Oregon State. While school spirit is a vital part of UA life, it’s certainly not all college students are capable of talking about. The candidates’ speeches by and large gave the impression that they had recently seen a raunchy movie about college life; they seemed out of touch with young people to an embarrassing and somewhat offensive degree. Several, like Aboud and Glassman, went so far as to undermine the education students receive at the UA by implying that their speeches were more important than attending class. Joking or not, their comments were inappropriate and poorly received. If students make the effort to attend a political rally, they don’t do so to be talked down to by candidates. College students, especially those who have made the effort to be informed or politically active, don’t need candidates to be able to “relate to them” in such inane ways. Candidates, especially Democrats, make much of the fact that young people can have a major impact on the upcoming midterm elections. But based on the performances at Monday’s rally, these candidates don’t really deserve students’ votes. They clearly don’t take students very seriously as a constituency. Candidates should come to college campuses ready to talk about the issues affecting college students. That includes almost every topic under the sun — from funding for higher education to job creation to immigration reform — because college students are a remarkably diverse group. Believe it or not, young people care about more than partying, football and ditching class. While all those elements have a place on college campuses, they shouldn’t be the only way candidates have of reaching out to students. Instead, those from both parties should acknowledge that college students are young adults, prepared to make informed voting decisions based on candidates’ policy positions, experience and record. To get young people’s votes, politicians must treat them like vital constituents, not rowdy children. Monday’s rally revealed that the state’s Democratic candidates are failing to respect the people whose votes they desperately need. — Editorials are determined by the Daily Wildcat opinions board and written by one of its members.

Not just about water
n obsessive focus on one important but not isolated issue is a serious mistake, especially for those who seek human compassion while — wittingly or unwittingly — turning a blind eye to mass death and suffering as a result of failed U.S. immigration policy. No More Deaths/No Más Muertes is not solely about leaving food and water in the desert. Humanitarian aid to help save the lives of migrants dying in the Sonoran Desert is merely one of several operative components of the organization. The fundamental purpose of the group is to end death and suffering on the U.S./Mexico border through “civil initiative: the conviction that people of conscience must work openly and in community to uphold fundamental human rights,” quoting the organization’s founding principles. Among the most egregious effects of U.S. border enforcement policy is the massive complex of violent, militarized infrastructure along the border which, as a matter of intended policy, forcibly “reroutes” human migration “away from urban areas toward geographically isolated areas” in order to establish “tactical advantage” over human beings, according to a May 2008 Congressional Research Service report. The American Civil Liberties Union’s October 2009 report “Humanitarian Crisis: Migrant Deaths at the U.S./Mexico Border” reveals the miserable facts of the more than 5,000 deaths since the U.S. implemented military programs along the major points of
traditional entry into the United States. It should be noted that the ACLU report emphasized and expanded many points of the 2008 report of the United Nations Special Rapporteur on the human rights of migrants, which concluded that “the United States lacks a clear, consistent, long-term strategy to improve respect for the human rights of migrants” and “has failed to adhere to its international obligations to make the human rights of the 37.5 million migrants living in the country a national priority.” Therefore, if the author of the column “Water in desert doesn’t solve larger issues” were indeed against leaving people “to die a painful dehydrationinduced death,” he would do well to join with others in enacting everything possible to pressure our government to stop providing the means that create and perpetuate those deaths. It is not a difficult task to see that since deadly border policy has been the focus of time and resources within U.S. national policy, mass destruction of human life has ensued. At the beginnings of U.S. border militarization, in 1994, 14 people died in the desert. By 2000, human deaths increased to 90, then 145 in 2001, to more than 163 in 2002. In Nation magazine the next year, Bob Moser reported a rare public criticism from within the government, from retired Tucson Border Patrol sector chief
Ron Sanders: “‘By every measure, the strategy (of deterrence) is a failure. All it’s accomplished is killing people.’” Seven years and thousands of deaths later, the nightmare of failed U.S. immigration and border enforcement policy pollutes the lives of everyone it touches, regardless of immigration status. No More Deaths understands that food, water or bandages alone will not stop deaths in the desert and repair the warped wheels of injustice. We must change the way we view and talk about things, shifting our conversations and focuses away from empty and distracting phrases like “security” to embrace the real issues here of public health, human rights and humane economic relationships with fellow societies.

U.S. must answer for past atrocities Andrew Shepherd Arizona Daily Wildcat
t was revealed last week that American public health officials intentionally infected about 700 Guatemalans with syphilis and gonorrhea between 1946 and 1948 in an effort to test the effectiveness of penicillin. The study used American tax dollars to pay for syphilis-infected prostitutes to sleep with Guatemalan soldiers, prisoners and the mentally ill. If the prostitutes didn’t infect the subjects, the researchers would then either pour the bacteria over open wounds or inject it by spinal puncture. The experiments came to light after Susan Reverby, a professor at Wellesley College, discovered the study’s unpublished findings at the archives of the University of Pittsburgh. Immediately after learning about them, Secretary of Health and Human Services Kathleen Sebelius and Secretary of State Hillary Clinton issued an apology to the government of Guatemala, stating they were “outraged that such reprehensible research could have occurred under the guise of public health.” While there’s no doubt that current American
officials must feel extremely embarrassed that such an event could occur under the banner of the U.S. government, they shouldn’t be surprised. After all, from 1932 to 1972, in what became known as the Tuskegee experiments, the government deliberately denied African American men treatment for syphilis in order to further understand the effects of the disease. After antibiotics were created, the men weren’t informed, and were kept in the dark until the media leaked information about the experiments in 1972. Such abhorrent actions by the U.S. government are nothing new; we’re the same country that used Agent Orange in Vietnam, supported violent military dictatorships throughout the world and funded coups against democratically elected leaders throughout the 1980s. Americans like to preach the moral high ground, but this latest development in the long history of U.S.-inflicted abuses shows that we must take a long look in the mirror. To be clear, the United States is much different than it was 60 years ago. In 1974,
Congress passed the National Research Act, creating the National Commission for the Protection of Human Subjects of Biomedical and Behavioral Research, intended to regulate the use of human subjects, making it necessary for test subjects to give their consent. It would be hard to believe that the United States is currently doing such experiments on unwilling subjects throughout the world, but it’s impossible to forget that it took more than 60 years for the public to find out about this latest atrocity. What else have we yet to find out about? It’s important to remember that at the time of these experiments, the U.S. government was seeking “crimes against humanity” charges against members of the Nazi regime for doing similar experiments on human subjects. For the most part, the United States is a force for good and conducts itself in a much more moral manner than the vast majority of other countries. Nonetheless, Americans shouldn’t be blind to the fact that things like these occur. It’s safe to say we’re no longer injecting people with syphilis, but we do practice rendition, still use water boarding and ally ourselves with governments known for committing atrocities, in addition to the programs the general public has no idea about. It’s essential that we work to prevent such horrible actions from occurring in the future and that we first start by looking at our own troubling past. — Andrew Shepherd is a political science senior.

thrilled with the progress we’ve made but we need to go further. We fundamentally believe that education has to be the great equalizer in America.” Jason Rzepka, the vice president for public affairs at MTV, who partnered with Get Schooled for the program, and Gaston Caperton, former governor of West Virginia and president of College Board, also participated in the call. Caperton stressed the importance of earning a college degree. “A college degree today is more important than it’s ever been, especially in this global society,” he said. Caperton said that only 56 percent of students graduate from college after six years, and only 27 percent of community college students graduate during the same time frame. “One of the real problems that we see is so many students entering college and universities not prepared to succeed,” Caperton said. “What we don’t want to see at all are people wasting their time in high school, coming to college and not completing their education, that’s really a double loss, not only is it difficult to pay but then not to get the reward of a college education.” Caperton stated his belief that some financial aid problems are caused by Americans living beyond their means, and that the economy as a whole is going through an adjustment and rebalancing period that is causing financial difficulties to state governments. “The difficulty we have today in this country is we have lived way beyond our means, people have under-saved … we’ve overspent, we have more cars and bigger houses than we can often afford and the government has not balanced its budget but has spent more money then it has,” he said. Caperton said that higher taxes that go toward educational spending should also be considered, saying it was something he did while governor. Rzepka said the partnership between MTV and the College Board was a logical one. “I’m personally very lucky to get to do what I do,” Rzepka said, “and that’s to get to use MTV’s superpowers for good … to have an impact on the biggest challenges (students) face as a generation.” He also said strategies for addressing higher education needs must continue to grow and evolve as the situations surrounding them do. “It’s no secret that young people today are facing significant educational barriers, barriers that prevent them from getting an education that prepares them for success in life, barriers that previous generations didn’t face,” Rzepka said. “And at the same time, the future of our country and the United States’ standing in the world has never been more dependent on the job that we do educating young Americans.” The Get Schooled program was started in 2005 as a partnership between MTV’s parent company Viacom, the College Board and the Gates Foundation. The program focuses on simplifying the financial aid process to ensure wider student access.
organization cannot frequent donation sites. “The U of A is probably unique in that its large population allows us to go multiple times a month and have different donors each time,” Deininger said. Deininger said the American Red Cross is looking to recruit donors while they are young because they are more likely to become donors for life. “We’re really looking for a new and younger generation of blood donors,” Deininger said. “And that starts with high school and college (students).” UA students also frequently donate blood through United Blood Services. “At the U of A, there are a lot of good people, and most are willing to donate,” said Steve Maack, donor recruitment representative for United Blood Services. “When people realize there is no pain and they’re helping, it’s amazing how eager people are to help.” AJ Tio, a senior majoring in speech, language and hearing sciences, has donated blood twice on campus. “I have a lot of it. It’s not like I need it,” Tio said. “It’s for a good cause.” Maack said United Blood Services holds more than 12 blood drives on campus each year, including three this month. About 35 people successfully donate blood at each drive, according to Maack. “We’ll usually get about 25 units of blood,” said Maack, noting Arizona hospitals require about 700 units of blood each day. “Doing a blood drive with anybody is always a good thing.” Each blood donation is separated into red blood cells, plasma, and platelets. Each component can be given to a different patient. “Giving an hour of your time is saving three people’s lives,” Davidson said. “It’s wonderful.” Udd said giving blood is a simple way for students to contribute. “Donating blood is one of the easiest ways you can give back to the community,” Udd said.

enthusiasm among young voters, Campas said. “We sort of feel like that’s how this election will be won, which side has more enthusiasm, more energy, is more active. “Young people are inherently progressive. We’re invested in the future,” Campas said, saying the young demographic is an “invaluable resource” for the parties, Democrat and Republican alike. Next to the rally, a Republican tent gathered people, while signs were held closer to the crowd in the Democratic event. Other candidates at the rally included Chris Deschene, running for secretary of state; Penny Kotterman, running for state superintendent of public instruction; Paula Aboud, running for state senate; and Manuel Cruz, running for Arizona state mine inspector.

POLICEBEAT By Lucy Valencia ARIZONA DAILY WILDCAT
Thereâ€™s a security system? Use it
A burglary occurred at the UA Department of Emergency Medicine between 4:30 p.m. on Sept. 29 and 7:40 a.m. on Sept. 30. At 7:50 a.m., a University of Arizona Police Department officer responded to the department and contacted an administrative assistant in that building. The woman said she locked the building and departed at 4:30 p.m. on Sept. 29. The woman returned the next day at 7:40 a.m. and discovered that the north entrance door was damaged. Furthermore, she entered the building and discovered damage to two more doors inside. The damage consisted of pried-out door locks, broken lock wells and broken doorframes. Additionally, the woman reported a digital camera was stolen from the top of her desk housed in the second room. The building was equipped with an Amer-X security system that, according to the woman, was rarely used and was inactive during the timeframe of the burglary. The officer inspected the premises and did not detect any items of evidentiary value. The officer then took digital images of the damage and submitted them as evidence. At this time there are no known suspects or witnesses.
UA employee finds white wallet
An employee of the university turned in a wallet to UAPD on Sept. 30 at 8:37 a.m. The employee worked for UA Parking and Transportation Services and had found a white wallet, which held a debit card and two Arizona Health Care Cost Containment System (AHCCCS) cards. A voicemail was left for the woman whose name appeared on the cards, and she was advised that a wallet containing her name is at UAPD. All property was logged into property and evidence for safekeeping.
Thatâ€™s the problem with Jeeps â€Ś
A man reported that his backpack was stolen from his Jeep. At approximately 11:45 a.m. on Sept. 30, the man reported his missing backpack to UAPD. An officer contacted him on campus. The man said he had left his backpack in his Jeep at the Rincon Vista Sports Complex on Sept. 27, at approximately 7 p.m. to play intramural football. When he returned two hours later, his backpack was gone. The Jeep had a soft top with a zipper entry to the vehicle. The backpack contained two textbooks, a TI-89 calculator and paperwork for the manâ€™s schoolwork. There are no witnesses or suspects at this time.
Officer fuddles search law, student still in trouble
Two resident assistants at a dorm on campus reported the odor of marijuana coming from a room on Sept. 30 at 8:53 p.m. A UAPD officer met with the RAs who said one of the inhabitants of the dorm room was in another room because he had just been returning to the dorm and was not involved in the incident. The officer knocked on the door, but there was no answer. The officer then spoke to the roommate who was not involved who told the officer that he could go into his dorm because nobody was there to answer. Once the man entered, he said that the officer could come in to look around. The officer told him because his roommate was not there, they could only do a cursory search of the side of the room that did not pertain to him. Upon conducting the cursory search, the officer noticed a black pipe in a clear plastic bag, out in plain view. The baggie was in a mailing envelope that was open on one end. There were other over-thecounter medications inside of the envelope as well. The officer thought that once he established the paraphernalia was in plain view, he was then able to search the rest of the room that belonged to the absent dorm resident. During the search, a grinding device was found inside a container that held a mixing powder for drinking. Also, inside of a desk drawer, he found a device used to roll marijuana joints. His supervisors later informed the officer that his understanding of the search law pertains to vehicles only and not to rooms. All of the items were entered into property and evidence. The suspect was not in the room at the time, but if and when he returns the RAs will call and notify UAPD. A code of conduct violation will be sent to the Dean of Students Office.

A secondary brotherhood
Catching up with Andy Lopez By Michael Fitzsimmons Arizona Daily Wildcat The Arizona Wildcats baseball team is less than a week away from beginning fall practices as it continues to gear up for the spring. Head coach Andy Lopez met with the Arizona Daily Wildcat to catch up on what the Wildcats have been up to this fall, impact freshmen and Pacific 10 Conference baseball.
Daily Wildcat: Having some time to look back on last year, are you pleased with what you accomplished?
Gordon Bates/Arizona Daily Wildcat
The Arizona Wildcat secondary, which is comprised of, from left to right, Robert Golden, Anthony Wilcox, Joe Perkins and Trevin Wade, celebrates their camaraderie after Arizona’s practice on Monday at Jimenez Practice Facility. The four players have gelled both on and off the field on their way to helping Arizona’s defense rank first in the Pac-10.
Whether they’re intercepting passes or Tweeting, the UA defensive backs have become one of the nation’s best – and closest – secondaries By Mike Schmitz Arizona Daily Wildcat Hours of grueling practice and 60 minutes of war every Saturday will naturally bring a group of athletes together. But very few collegiate football players can say they’ve grown as close as Arizona’s secondary. Between the non-stop banter and never-ending trash talking lies a group of “brothers” who share so much more than just the defensive backfield. Starting senior safeties Joe Perkins and Anthony Wilcox and starting junior cornerbacks Trevin Wade and Robert Golden aren’t just teammates — they’re family. “I’ve been saying it all year, this is probably the closest I’ve ever seen a group,” Wade said of the defensive backs. “I think we’re the absolute closest out of anybody.”
The quartet is together non-stop, and Wade said they sometimes even go on quadruple dates from time to time. The bond has gotten so strong that it’s translated to their parents, who have become also friends. “On and off the field, we’re all close. Family wise too,” Wilcox said. Golden and Wilcox immediately formed a bond when the two joined the team in 2008 and are “together every day,” according to Golden. That same year also brought together Wade and Perkins who also developed a close friendship. But although they had their individual friendships, it wasn’t until this summer that the four of them came together. Wade said because they were the expected starters, they were “forced to talk.” Then, once they heard the criticism and lack of expectations
surrounding Arizona’s secondary, that brotherhood developed. “I think it’s more like people doubting us and everybody say-
Defensive Pac-10 rankings’ 1st in total defense: 230 yards per game, 3.9 yards per play and three TDs 1st in rushing defense: 101.2 yards per game, 2.9 yards per carry, zero TDs 1st in pass defense: 129.5 yards per game, 49.5 completion percentage, three TDs, three INTs 1st in scoring defense: 11.0 points per game, five FGs, four TDs, one safety
ing our secondary was going to be the weak unit of the team,” Wilcox said. “If you’re a competitor, that just makes you angry and makes you want to step up to the challenge so it brought all of us closer.” From observing their dynamic for only a few minutes after practice, you would think these four were raised together. But each member of the Wildcats’ secondary embarked on a different journey to Arizona. Wade worked his way up from a two-star recruit to Arizona’s shutdown corner. Golden was a fourstar recruit that is finally finding success after an unsuccessful season at safety in 2009. Perkins and Wilcox are former junior college transfers — Wilcox making an impact after only four career games,
Andy Lopez: When the season’s done, you get a chance to reflect a little bit more. When you start as many as five freshmen in the field, and two guys in your rotation are freshmen, and everybody else is a sophomore with one senior on the field … They were spitting oil at the end, there were some injuries, but you know that’s going to happen with a lot of freshmen. Fifty-six games is a long season, and I think they did a good job at coming out ready to play in a crucial part of our season at the very beginning when we played some teams outside of the Pac-10. They played well for that stretch when they won 15 games in a row. It was lot of games to win in a row, it really was, especially for a young group, and I think that was the reason they were rewarded with postseason play. Now they’re a year older, and you don’t have to talk to these guys about college baseball, they know exactly what it encompasses and entails. Now it’s just a matter of going out and executing the game solidly. DW: How does the team look early in the fall? AL: Well our first practice is Oct. 11, that’ll be the first day of tryouts and anybody who wants to walk on, so we’ll practice that afternoon. We’ve been in skill hours since about Sept. 6, meaning

Jennie Finch returns to Tucson By Nicole Dimtsios Arizona Daily Wildcat
Mike Christy/Arizona Daily Wildcat
Pitcher Shelby Babcock fires to first during Arizona’s 9-0 loss to the National Pro Fastpitch All-Stars team last night at Hillenbrand Stadium. Despite the lopsided loss, the Wildcats said they were honored to share the field with some of the nation’s best players.
Softball falls to All-Stars 9-0 By Kelly Hultgren Arizona Daily Wildcat Rather than host an inferior opponent in the month of October like the Arizona softball team usually does, the Wildcats hosted the National Pro Fastpitch All-Stars team, which included Arizona legends such as Jennie Finch and Taryne Mowatt, last night at Hillenbrand Stadium. The NPF team upheld their elite reputation by beating the Wildcats 9-0. NPF pitcher Cat Osterman lived up to the team’s name by pitching a perfect game through the fifth inning. Osterman switched with Jamee Juarez who then finished the game with the same intensity, completing the perfect game.
Unfortunately for the Wildcats, NPF’s offense was equally as impressive. Right fielder Megan Willis got NPF’s first hit of the evening in the second inning. The All-Stars then scored three more runs in the fourth with the help of Willis’ two-run homer, her first home run of the game. Willis would hit her second home run of the game later in the fifth inning. Despite getting outplayed in every facet of the game, it wasn’t all negative for Arizona. Center fielder Lauren Schutzler made an incredibly impressive catch, running into the fence to track down a long fly ball. “It was the first time I made a catch like that, so it was really exciting,” Schutzler said. “Adrenaline kind of takes over.
I felt my face kind of smack into the wall. It’s nice we have the padding out there.” Schutzler, like many other Arizona softball players, has plenty of experience on national teams against players of this caliber. Yet the senior, who played for the USA Softball Women’s Futures National Team over the summer, was in awe at the talent in the other dugout. “It’s a great honor to be on the field with them. The way they conduct themselves and the way they play is a good example for us,” Schutzler said. Junior second baseman Kristen Arriola also flashed some web gems in the field but realized the glove work couldn’t overcome the team’s overall performance, especially when it come to team work.
Things came full circle for Jennie Finch yesterday. After the softball legend announced her retirement from the game of softball at the age of 29, Arizona head coach Mike Candrea wanted to make sure Finch got to play at Hillenbrand Stadium one last time. “It’s so very special,” said Finch, who pitched at Arizona from 1999-2002. “I’m so grateful to Coach when he called me and asked ‘Would you be willing to play?’ Oh my gosh, what a cool thing, and so I was very excited and looking forward to this night.” Finch, along with four other former Arizona players — Taryne Mowatt, Caitlin Lowe, Mackenzie Vandergeest and Chelsie Mesa — made the return with the National Pro Fastpitch All-Stars in the Back to School Tour. “It’s nice to be able to bring back some of the people that have paved the road, put some of those banners up on the wall for us, so our young kids can see it in person,” Candrea said. Finch, who played first base during the exhibition, made an immediate impact in the box and in the circle for Arizona. She won a national championship in 2001 and was named an All-American pitcher three times in her college career. Finch has been a part of two Olympic squads, bringing home a gold medal in the Athens 2004 games and a
silver medal in the Beijing 2008 games. But after her final game, Finch seemed content with her decision to step away from the game she loved. “I’ve been overwhelmingly blessed in so many ways by this great game,” Finch said. “I want to help continue to grow that opportunity and make it there even more so for the future of our sport and those are the young girls dreaming of playing Arizona softball and playing for the USA team and playing in the pro league. “I look forward to the next step and the next phase because I feel like now I’ll be able to give even more so than I did when I was playing because of the schedule and the training that we had to go through.” Finch has a 4-year-old son, Ace, with husband and major league baseball player Casey Daigle. She said she plans on spending her time with her family and focusing on being a mother. Candrea said that although she has accomplished so much for the sport, Finch’s decision to call it quits is something that she has well deserved. “I think if any athlete that has put the time and effort into the game that she has, I think people may recognize game night, but they don’t recognize what happens the other seven, eight months to prepare and keep your body FINCH, page 12

Wildcat defensive backs brothers on, off field
and Perkins transforming from a spot-duty utility man to a mainstay at free safety. But even with such different roots, the defensive backs have come together to form a secondary that’s part of one of the nation’s best defenses through four games. The Wildcats’ defense is second in the nation in yards allowed, yielding only 230.8 per game while surrendering only 11 points per game. Arizona and the combination of Wade, Golden, Perkins and Wilcox also lead the Pac-10 in pass defense (129.5 yards per game, three touchdowns, three interceptions). This close-knit secondary certainly offers an array of talents from top to bottom, but it’s the togetherness that’s allowed the four to disprove the doubters and shine on the gridiron. “It’s kind of like family, so you trust the guy that’s next to you,” Wilcox said. “You don’t really worry about, ‘Oh, this guy is going to hang me out to dry.’ You know they got your back.” Golden added: “It helped us a lot because we know where each other are going to be and we know what to expect out of each other so we can pick each other up when we know they aren’t playing to their expectations.” Thanks to this new dynamic between Arizona’s defensive backs, Golden, Wade, Perkins and Wilcox have played above and beyond their expectations. The brotherhood has shined through on the field and has become a huge reason for the Wildcats’ No. 9 AP ranking and their best start in the past 12 seasons. “Things are real close,” Wade said. “It’s like we’re brothers out there.”
If for some reason the chemistry between these defensive backs goes unnoticed on the field, look no further than Twitter. Wade (@T2TKILLA24), Golden (@R0bG0lden) and Wilcox (@AnthonyWilcox3) carry their trash talking from the field to the Internet. “I just like that we can still talk trash to each other, even though we don’t see each other, so it’s really cool,” said Wade, who began the Twitter train. “We always make fun of each other.” Golden soon followed Wade, and the two have developed quite the Twitter competition already. “Me and him, we be going back and forth on Twitter trying to see who can get the most followers and everything,” Golden said. Wilcox followed suit soon after. He admitted he isn’t much of a social media guy and leaves all of the trash talking to Golden and Wade. Although the secondary is well represented on Twitter, Wilcox, Golden and Wade are lobbying for one more addition that would go by the name of @thebeardman, according to Wilcox. “Perk, he say he’s not going to get it, but all his brothers got one so we trying to get him on too,” Golden said. Wade says Perkins is going to “give in pretty soon,” but not according to the man himself. “All the rest of them have Twitters, I don’t,” Perkins said defiantly. “Just not really that into it, something I don’t want to do. My brother has one, that’s probably the closest I’ll get to Twitter.”

Ortega slowly healing
separate bullpens, separate guys in the cage and separate guys in the infield or outfield. Those are the NCAA rules we have to abide by right now. But again, I like this group. I liked them last year when they were young, and I like them this year when they’re a year older. The one thing that’s a little bit of a fly in the ointment right now is Bryce Ortega is still not 100 percent.
DW: Is it still a back injury? AL: Yeah, he has not participated in skill
hours at all this fall, so we’re kind of holding our breath on that one. He’s a key part of that infield. I really believe when he and (infielder Alex) Mejia are out there it’s as good an infield as you’ll find in the nation. They were on that pace last year early in the season to break that record for all time double plays, they’re both very good players. So that’s really the only thing holding me back right now from saying it feels really good. It feels very good right now, it would feel fantastic if Bryce Ortega were healthy.
DW: It’s still early, but do you see any freshmen that might be impact players in the spring?
AL: Yeah, I think Brandon Dixon is going to be a guy that’s going to help us, he’s a freshman from Southern California. Konner Wade is from Chaparral High in Scottsdale, and he’s been real impressive in his bullpens. It’s not a big recruited class, there are not a lot of guys in since we have so many guys back and didn’t go out and recruit a bunch of guys. But those two guys right now jump out as guys who look like they’re
going to be OK.
DW: What are your thoughts on California’s recent decision to cut its baseball program? AL: Oh man, (Cal head coach) David Esquer and I are dear, dear friends. I’ve known David a long time, I knew him when he was a young assistant at Pepperdine University. He picks me up from the airport in San Francisco when I go up there for Pac10 meetings, so we go back. Today’s the first day I haven’t talked to David since they made that decision, I’ve talked to him everyday since. Just shocked, sad, you know, just shocked. You know, I understand, I’m raising four kids, I’ve got two kids in college and two out, so I understand the economics of life right now. I can sense the huge challenges that athletic programs face right now, you just have to read a local paper to see the challenges that are out there. It’s always a sad thing, any sport that’s cut you feel for. This, for me, is almost one of those things where it’s more difficult because it’s someone you really know. I said it about an hour ago to my staff, I still can’t believe Cal isn’t going to have a baseball program, it just doesn’t add up. I’m a Pac-10 guy, I played in the Pac-10, grew up watching it in Los Angeles. I spent seven years in the SEC, and say what you want, but Pac-10 baseball is as good of baseball on a daily basis that you’re going to see in the country. It will match up anywhere. It’s hard to believe losing one of those schools. I understand that’s how it is, but boy, it’s a shocker.

UA hopes to up retention
carefully, and I emphasize we, at whether privatization of a college, programs, makes sense,” Shelton said. “Isn’t just viable, but makes sense.” Shelton did acknowledge that the university is looking at privatization and that, in some cases, greater self-reliance was an appropriate course of action. “We used to think that if you’re on state dollars, you’re stable, you’re secure, and if you’re on external funding, it could fluctuate … then you’re vulnerable,” Shelton said. “Boy have times changed.” Shelton spoke at length about the working vision for the future of the state’s higher education system. Shelton collaborated with a group he calls the “gang of four:” Arizona State University President Michael Crow, Northern Arizona University President John Haeger, and Tom Anderes, the president of the Arizona Board of Regents. They created the “Arizona Higher Education Enterprise-Strategic Realignment 2010 Forward,” a report outlining what must be done to achieve ABOR’s educational goals for 2020. The report differentiates between the three universities, acknowledging both the differences in their student body populations and their modes of operation. “There’s a very clear commitment … that the universities need to celebrate and embrace, the board needs to celebrate and embrace, the differentiated missions of the universities,” Shelton said. UA’s specific goals include raising the six-year graduation rate from 58 percent to 70 percent, increasing freshman retention rates from 78 percent to more than 90 percent, and increasing the number of students who take “alternative routes” to UA degrees from 1,500 to

Carla Stoffle, dean of University Libraries and the Center for Creative Photography, gave a presentation on the state of the university’s library system, which she described as positive thanks in part to the increased student library fee. She said that the UA library system was able to avoid additional cuts to its acquisitions budget as a result. The co-chairs for the 2010 North Central Association accreditation process, Randy Richardson, professor of geosciences, and Beth Mitchneck, associate dean of the Colleges of Letters, Arts and Sciences and associate professor of geography and regional development, presented their briefing document detailing the results of the UA’s self-study report. Their findings concluded that the UA student experience has improved over the last decade. Several areas were identified for improvement including achieving greater faculty diversity and strategic planning and budgeting, and communicating the UA’s commitment to maintaining and deepening its partnerships. “This is a visibility issue, not a quantity issue,” Mitchneck said. “It’s there, it’s brilliant, it’s doing great, but not everybody knows about it.” Mitchneck also lauded the UA’s commitment to engagement and service. “What we discovered is that engagement and service is occurring everywhere at this university,” she said. “You look under a rock and it’s there.” The accreditation evaluation team will visit campus in early December.
EVERYONE has a STORY
Torry Brouillard-Bruce Twitter winner, Foursquare fiend
By Abigail Richardson Arizona Daily Wildcat “Everyone Has a Story” is a weekly segment in the Arizona Daily Wildcat aiming to tell the story of an interesting person on the UA campus. This week, the Daily Wildcat interviewed Torry Brouillard-Bruce, the assistant director of the Hall Operations and Student Staff Recruitment and Training of Residential Education. Bruce’s passion for social networking websites won him an all-expense-paid vacation to Dallas, Texas, this past weekend. “I’m a bit of a Twitter junkie so I follow Southwest Airlines,” he said. “They put up a question about two weeks ago asking, ‘Why you would rather be golfing than working,’ because they (had) their big charity golf tournament this past weekend for the Ronald McDonald House. I put a Twitter message out there and used the hashtag ‘LUVclassic’ because that’s what you had to do and scored the free trip.” A hashtag is a tag that is used on Twitter by inserting the “#” symbol before a word. It allows Twitter to categorize posts and users to search and follow the tweeted topic. “I said, ‘I would rather be at the ball park than the dentist, I’d rather pay nothing for bags than $120 and I’d rather be golfing than working,’ and then I put the hastag ‘LUVclassic.’” Bruce said Southwest Airlines has over 1 million followers on Twitter, but they only follow about 6,000 people. Shortly after his tweet, Southwest Airlines requested to follow Bruce on Twitter. “They followed me because you can then send a direct message, which is the third realm of Twitter,” Bruce said. “You got the ‘@replies,’ the ‘hashtag’ and the direct message. The direct message is a way to send a message to one person that only they can see. An hour after following me, they sent me a direct message saying, ‘Congratulations, you won.’” Bruce and his girlfriend received free flights, two nights at the Grand Hyatt DFW in Dallas, were able to take part in the golf tournament and a huge party afterwards, which was all paid for by Southwest Airlines. Social networking sites, for Bruce, have helped him connect with others in ways that he would not have been able to sitting in an office. “I have tried to stay ahead of the curve with technology,” he said. “It was interesting, I started Facebook in 2004 when it first kicked off … and then as soon as Twitter started going off, it seemed like an awesome opportunity to stay connected with people, to get messages out there
Erich Healy/Arizona Daily Wildcat
Torry Brouillard-Bruce, assistant director of Hall Operations and Student Staff Recruitment and Training of Residential Education, “checks in” to Highland Market via Foursquare, a geosocial networking service. Bruce believes social networking services like Twitter, Facebook and Foursquare have commercial value as well as social value.
and to see what people are doing.” In addition to Facebook and Twitter, Bruce is also an avid Foursquare user. “Foursquare is essentially a tagging moniker used around the world,” he said. “Literally you show up someplace, you go onto Foursquare and say, ‘Hey, guess what? I’m here,’ and people can see where you’re at. It’s a way to communicate who is where and who is doing what.” If you frequently visit a location, you can become “mayor” of that location. Bruce is currently mayor of five places, but it changes on a daily basis depending on who else is using Foursquare in that location, he said. “For awhile I was the mayor of this building, ‘El Portal’ until my administrative assistant took me over,” Bruce said. Bruce considers Foursquare a competition and is determined to become the mayor of El Portal once again.

Quick hits from Stoops presser The bye week:
“I thought it was good to get rested, thought it was a good off week for us. We had a lot of guys kind of nicked up to get healthy and rest mentally and physically, so I thought it was a productive week. We should have everyone back (at practice this week).”
The legal drinking age is lower in other countries and there’s no problem. What’s with that?
A. a marine sniper, Richard Gere had an unfortunate emergency room mishap with a gerbil, and albino alligators live in NYC sewers. Don’tcha just love urban legends? Mister Rogers was really
Oh yeah, and this one: because many European countries have a lower drinking age, this leads to more responsible drinking habits among their young people. However, data show that with the exception of Turkey, U.S. youth have lower reported instances of alcohol abuse than any other European nation. A recent study compared rates of alcohol consumption and alcohol-related problems in the United States with those in Europe and found that both rates and frequency of drinking among European youth are higher than in the U.S. One indicator depicting more responsible European drinking would be lower incidents of binge drinking. However, studies show that while still a significant problem here, U.S. adolescents/young adults binge drink less than their European peers. Only Portugal had a lower rate of than the U.S. Italy, Greece, and Spain had a 30-39% greater rate, and Demark topped the survey at 61%. In the category of intoxication, which is associated with a wide range of personal and social problems like vandalism, assaults, injuries, and death, the U.S. was below the middle of the pack compared to other European countries. Once again, Denmark topped the intoxication charts. The only category where European youth fared better were in alcohol related motor vehicle accidents, but studies show this was due to higher legal driving ages, more expensive vehicles, shorter driving distances, and greater access to public transportation. I like so hate to burst any bubbles. But the myth that young European people, with their lower legal drinking ages and drinking socialization practices, drink more responsibly than their American counterparts is just not true. There’s no real evidence to back this up. But you never know, albino alligators might still infest NYC sewers. 90% of UA students refuse to drive with a driver who has been drinking. (2010 Health & Wellness Survey, N=2,931)

The Red Cup Q&A is written by Lynn Reyes, LCSW, LSAC, David Salafsky, MPH, Lee Ann Hamilton, MA, CHES, and Spencer Gorin, RN, in the Health Promotion and Preventive Services (HPPS) department of the UA Campus Health Service.
Early preparations for Oregon State:
“Had some good work last week on Oregon State and the variety of things they do offensively. It was good to be able to go back and research some of our past games (against the Beavers) and know what hurt us. They haven’t changed a whole lot in what they do on either side. Having (wide receiver James) Rodgers back will give them even more firepower, and we anticipate him playing.”
What Oregon State is all about:
“Their quarterback looks like he’s
starting to get comfortable in what they’re doing. They’ve played probably the top schedule in the country so it’s been a tough five games, but that seems to be philosophy and they seem to get much stronger as the season goes on. It’ll be a tough contest with them. It always is when we play them.”
Being ranked No. 9 despite not playing this weekend:
“It’s good to be, from a media perception and recruiting and all that, recognized. There’s a lot of hard work that’s gone in from a lot of people into all of this. But it’s very premature. Watching the games and seeing the quality of teams we have to play, we just have to keep our nose pointed straight ahead. Just looking at Oregon State we realize we have to play better than we did the last time we were on the field. It’s a great position to be in, but 2-0 in the Pac-
Former Wildcat great still a fan favorite
10 is a lot better than 1-1.”
The state of the Pac-10:
“It’s going to be a rigorous and very taxing season. There isn’t a big separation in talent across the board. Certainly we feel just as talented as a lot of teams and worked hard to get in this position, and hopefully our players want more than this because, like I said, this is just four games. We’ll see where we’re at at the end of all 12. We’re not talented enough not to play well and win games.”
Being able to watch games on TV during the bye:
“(The bye week) was good for our coaches to have the weekend off, and I thought it was kind of fun to watch other people out there. I liked how (Stanford head coach Jim) Harbaugh and (Oregon head coach Chip) Kelly were yelling (at the officials). I wonder if they’ll get a memo.”
9-0 loss not a concern for Candrea, Wildcats

in shape,” Candrea said. “I think right now she’s decided, she wants to be a mom, she wants to maybe have another kid. I’m proud of what she’s done for the sport, and I’m more proud of who she is and what she’s accomplished. “ Over 2,600 fans welcomed Finch back to the diamond. She received a standing ovation in the middle of the fourth inning when the game was briefly interrupted to honor Finch and the rest of the returning Wildcats. “Tonight was a celebration. What an incredible homecoming to walk into this field, stadium and just see it packed,” Finch said. “So many fond memories, so many friends, fans, young girls, awesome night. So a lot of emotion but what an enjoyable, incredible way to end my days on the playing field.” Finch will return to Hillenbrand on Oct. 22 for the Arizona Alumni Game. Mowatt, Lowe, Vandergeest and Mesa are also scheduled to be in attendance.
“We need to work on communication,” Arriola said. “We had little problems. Some fly balls were not caught that should have been.” Regardless of play that resulted in the lopsided final score, head coach Mike Candrea had an optimistic and appreciative mind-set at the end of the game. “It was a great learning experience for us. It definitely showed a different level of pitching,” Candrea said. “On the other hand, we have to learn to be able to make some adjustments and put the ball in play.” In the middle of the fourth inning, Hillenbrand Stadium’s atmosphere was overwhelmed with bittersweet emotions when Candrea delivered a speech to his past Wildcats, and a specialized one to Jennie Finch. He said he was honored to have Finch be playing one of her last games at the stadium. Finch also gave a speech saying how blessed and grateful she is to have been a Wildcat and for all the support she has received from Arizona throughout the years — especially from the fans.
