Steward celebrates 100 years BY MARISSA HEFFERNAN @_mheffernan

One hundred years ago, almost to the day, an anonymous donor gave the UA $60,000 for the University to buy a telescope—and not just any telescope. According to a press release from the Steward Observatory, the donor gave an amount equivalent to $1.3 million today in order for the UA to buy a “telescope of huge size.” Such a large gift could not remain anonymous for long, and the generous donor was revealed to be one Lavinia Steward of Oracle, Arizona, who had become wealthy from the development and marketing of oatmeal as a breakfast food. To commemorate the date, the Steward Observatory held a special showing Monday evening of the documentary “Focusing the Universe,” a short history of the observatory created by the school of theatre, film and television distinguished professor Peter Beudert and associate professor Michael Mulcahy. The film explained that before the Steward Observatory, astronomy in southern Arizona was—as it was in general—mostly “make it up as you go.” The documentary was followed by a panel Q&A session with Mulcahy, Dean Joaquin Ruiz of the College of Science, Director of Steward Observatory Buell Jannuzi and Catherine Ellis of the Oracle Historical Society, an expert on Steward’s life. The documentary explained that as the field of astronomy was barely recognized, it relied heavily on private donations. Steward’s gift not only made Steward Observatory possible but advanced the study of astronomy

and space science as a whole. Ellis said that Steward decided to donate the money because she became a philanthropist after the death of her husband, Henry. Steward asked around and found a need for the observatory. As Steward had been interested in astronomy herself, it was the perfect opportunity. “She was not feeling good, and I assume she knew she was going to pass away soon,” Ellis said. “She wanted to do something here in Tucson to memorialize her husband.” Scientists at Steward Observatory helped spearhead the government’s push for stronger science programs after World War I, helped develop infrared technology and invented the multiple-mirror method of lenses that allowed telescope images to be precise and clear. Now, they are working to help launch the world’s largest space telescope, the James Webb Space Telescope, and are manufacturing all the mirrors for the Giant Magellan Telescope being built in Chile. Jannuzi said the UA became a hub for astronomy in the 1970s and will continue to push boundaries. “Arizona will influence the next generation of space research,” Jannuzi said. “We don’t care if its called astronomy or not. It’s our job to share what we’re discovering.” The panel answered a range of audience questions from how Steward got interested in space to how women got into astronomy in the first place. In the audience was Michael Chriss, the first person to get a master’s degree from Steward Observatory in 1958. “I always knew I wanted to be an astronomer—I have no idea why,”

research,” Fleming said. “It attracted other astrology people here, along with others.” The evening ended with cake and the chance for audience members to look through the Observatory’s Raymond E. White, Jr. telescope and a classic five-inch bronze refracting telescope, which was manufactured in 1888 and is the oldest telescope on campus at 128 years old

Task force stresses need for diverse faculty BY MEGAN JACOBY @DailyWildcat

The UA Diversity Task Force held a meeting in Old Main on Monday to update their team members on the tasks at hand for the Faculty and Staff Diversity Committee and the Cultural Competency Training Committee. The beginning of the meeting focused on Jesús Treviño, senior diversity officer on the Diversity Task Force, talking about updates on his diversity actions, which include students’ demands to increase diversity at the university. Students have concerns about what they believe is necessary for comfortable living in or around the university, such as genderneutral bathrooms, which has been one of most pressing issues, according to Treviño. “My vision is to run this like a campaign and at some point in time have an opening where we invite all the diversity committees and the deans to come in and talk about the campaign and how it is going to run,” Trevino said, “focusing on actions, and keeping track of the actions.” The meeting continued with an update from the Faculty and Staff Diversity Committee. Nolan Cabrera, associate professor in the College of Education, spoke on their actions and how they hope to establish their program as a more diverse and welcoming environment for faculty. The college’s numbers are not

as high as they want them to be in terms of having as much faculty diversity as possible at the UA, according to Cabrera. They think they are lagging behind. Cabrera said there is no good way to currently assess the faculty’s needs, as some of them have been treated with hostility in their teaching environment. “We continually express how important our diverse student body is, but at the same time the staffing continues to go down,” Cabrera said. About 50 percent of faculty have left the university because of diversity discrimination in the workplace, according to Cabrera. This information is derived from a focus group conducted last spring in which 10 minority faculty members provided feedback on their experience working at the UA. The resulting report from the focus group determined that discrimination is still a problem at the UA, and the university isn’t doing enough to address discrimination. The report also makes note that the campus leadership remains “overwhelmingly white” and that some of the polices at the UA hinder diversity efforts. Mascha Gemein, assistant professor of practice, talked about how their committee is hoping to create a more culturally advanced environment for students. The committee offered some ideas as to how they hope to try and create a more diverse environment through students and faculty at the UA campus. One of the diversity components

Over 5,000 rally to Sanders' stump for Clinton BY RANDALL ECK @Reck999

Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders stumped to over 5,000 people on the UA Mall for Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton, calling on supporters to elect her president this November. The night began when Zaira Serrato, a UA senior studying neuroscience and cognitive science, took the stage to recount her experience as an undocumented migrant. As a first-generation American and college student, Serrato never thought she would be able to attend the UA. She said once at UA though, like many other students, she was forced to go into debt to obtain an education. With friends driving cabs on the weekend to pay their debts, Serrato said Sanders and Clinton’s message of free college tuition and the promise of good jobs after graduation resonated with her. “I urge you to vote for Secretary Clinton this November,” Serrato said. Sanders said local Congressmen Raul Grijalva is a leader on every important issue for working families. “There is only one legitimate, rational, capable choice and that is Hillary Clinton," Grijalva said. Grijalva who introduced Sanders to the stage with chants of "Bernie" resounding from the crowd, said he is a crusader and the leader of a redemptive political movement in this country. “Arizona is a battleground state, and you can make the difference in terms of who the next president will be," Sanders said. currently forecasts that Clinton will win Arizona’s electoral votes—the first

time since Bill Clinton won the state in 1996. First Lady Michelle Obama and Chelsea Clinton will make the case for Hillary this Thursday at Arizona State University. “We cannot elect a man to be president who objectifies women, brags about assaulting women and refers to our Mexican brothers as rapists,” Sanders said, echoing Michelle Obama’s previous criticism of Trump. Mary Coffelt, a UA alumna and undecided voter, attended the rally tonight to hear Sanders speak about the important economic issues facing the nation such as income inequality and Citizens United. To the uproar of the crowd, Sanders addressed campaign finance reform, his major political theme, and said in the first hundred days of a Clinton presidency she will "bring forth a constitutional amendment to overturn Citizens United.” Sanders conveyed his desire to have a vigorous and vibrant democracy and voiced his concern over America’s drift towards an oligarchy where billionaires can buy elections. “We live in a nation today with a grotesque level of income inequality, worse than any time since 1928," Sanders said. Kathy Ortega, a mother from Tucson, spoke before Sanders and called on UA students to vote yes on Proposition 206, so mothers like her with children and a disabled husband can have a living wage. Sanders congratulated the 13 million Americans who voted for him in the primaries and helped him build the most progressive Democratic platform in history that included a $15 minimum wage


SEN. BERNIE SANDERS SPEAKS at the Arizona Democratic Party's Early Vote Rally on the UA Mall Tuesday, Oct. 18. Sanders implored those present to vote for Clinton for numerous policy reasons.

in order to fight income inequality. Jacob Wilson, a UA Ph.D. student studying higher education, said he was a Clinton supporter since the beginning but loves the plan for free college tuition Sanders and Clinton built together. Sanders asked the members of the crowd to raise their hands if they had student debt. Just like Serrato, many in the crowd raised their hands. Sanders went on to tout Clinton’s plan to allow these individuals to refinance their student loans and massively reduce their interest rates. Sanders went on to address America’s history of denying women and people of color the

right to vote. Sanders said recent voter suppression laws, like those in Arizona, remind him of our unequal past. “If cowardly governors don't have the guts to defend their ideas in a free and fair election, they should get out of politics," Sanders said. Sanders advocated for a path to citizenship for illegal migrants, increased access to mental health treatment, the end to mass incarceration and guaranteed paid family leave. Sanders continually relayed his and Clinton’s mutual support of all these policies. “On Nov. 8, our job is to defeat Trump and elect Hilary Clinton as our president," Sanders said.

"This election is important, but politics and the fight for justice isn't just about election day— you got to get to work the day after, too.” He asked UA students to roll up their sleeves and fight to make the country what it needs to become what it can be. “Real change always comes from the bottom up and never from the top on down,” Sanders said. Sanders told supporters to ignore the media when they say big economic and social change is not possible. “Always, think big not small,” Sanders shouted to the uproar of the crowd before leaving the stage.

Third time’s the charm University of Arizona Police Department officers went to Rawls Eller Lodge on Oct. 12 following a report of a marijuana odor coming from a room in the residence hall. It was the same room from two previous calls in the past two weeks. When the officers arrived and went to the room they could smell a slight odor of marijuana outside the room. They knocked, and when the door opened, the smell grew stronger. When the room’s resident saw the officers, he threw his arms up and said that they were not smoking marijuana in the room and said the officers could come in. The man had been arrested two times before for marijuana or paraphernalia. The officer told the man that they were there because of the smell of marijuana, not because someone was smoking it. The resident said he had marijuana and when the officer asked he took out a baggie of it. The man was arrested and taken to Pima County Jail. Not so suite UAPD officers responded to a report of theft and criminal damage at Apache Residence Hall on Oct. 11. One resident was reporting issues with her suitemate. The resident said her suitemate had been verbally harassing her since the day of the UA vs. Washington State football game and made a Facebook post calling her names. The resident said her suitemate had been uncomfortable with her bringing men into the room. The resident confronted the suitemate about the Facebook post, and the suitemate is now in the process of moving out. The resident said that some of her stuff, including a Bose speaker charger and body mist, is missing, while other things have been damaged, such as two pairs of shoe laces being cut and an iPhone charging cable appearing to be cut. The resident thought it was the suitemate because of their disagreement, but when officers talked to the suitemate, she denied damaging or stealing the resident’s property. The resident wants to press charges for her damaged material.

UA College of Medicine earns diversity award BY ELIZABETH O’CONNELL @_eoconnell

The UA College of Medicine— Tucson received the 2016 Health Professions HEED Award from the INSIGHT Into Diversity magazine. INSIGHT Into Diversity is a diversity-focused publication aimed at higher education and is the oldest and largest magazine in its niche. All accredited U.S. health profession schools have the opportunity to apply for the Health Professions HEED Award, and this is the first time the UA College of Medicine has won. The director of the UA Health Services Office of Diversity and Inclusion, Lydia Kennedy, was in charge of the application for the award. A process which began toward the end of June, said Charles Cairns, dean of the College of Medicine. “We’re very grateful for her enthusiasm and support of all the college’s diversity efforts and activities,” Cairns said. “She worked with a number of departments and people to complete the extensive application.” Programs such as the Pre-Medical Admissions Pathway, the Navajo

Nation Future Physicians’ Scholarship Fund and the Border Latino and American Indian Summer Exposure to Research are a few of the programs Cairns listed that helped the college win the award. Lacy Manuelito, a cellular and molecular medicine graduate student, is the chair of the student diversity advisory committee. The committee acts as a liaison between the students and the Office of Diversity and Inclusion. Manuelito said the committee provides a student perspective of what the college needs in terms of support of the current and incoming diversity. “It started with P-MAP, the PreMedical Admissions Pathway, and I think that has really helped kick start their initiative to increase diversity here at the school, not only ethnicity but experiences in general,” Manuelito said. She said the clubs have done a great deal to push diversity and inclusion. Manuelito was born on a reservation, and she explained that coming to the UA is nothing like where she grew up. The diversity helped her differentiate between traditional and nontraditional views.

Dr. Francisco Moreno, deputy dean for diversity and inclusion, was in charge of overseeing and facilitating the efforts related to supporting individuals that are working with diversity and inclusion with the college for the award. Moreno believes the college looks at diversity and inclusion as essential values that permeate all its activities, from recruitment and preparation to selection and admissions. “I think [the award] is a validation and recognition of the outstanding commitment that the College of Medicine has made now for at least four years,” Moreno said. Moreno said they are hoping to partner with all of the UA Health Sciences colleges to see how they can support and optimize diversity promotion and the inclusion of values. “We are creating a lot of very good momentum on campus, and I think we are one additional player that contributes to that overall conversation,” Moreno said. Manuelito hopes to see more information and services about the different types of healthcare systems in the future. The college has recently started

to establish a LGBTQ interest group for the college’s faculty, according to Cairns. They are also expanding SafeZone training programs. “It’s an honor to be recognized for the work that we’re doing to increase diversity and improve inclusion

in our programs,” Cairns said. “Receiving outside recognition for creating an inclusive environment and embracing diversity reaffirms that we’re on the right track and helps us continue to build diversity in our programs.”

The gentleman from Vermont will not yield BY RAAD ZAGLOUL @RaadZaghloul

Oh, how the times have changed. More than a year ago, Sen. Sanders—then an upstart primary contender with hordes of young people at his back—visited Reid Park to deliver a fiery speech to an estimated 11,000 audience members. That night, the enthusiasm was palpable. As the audience waited for the gentleman from Vermont to take the stage, electricity coursed through the crowd in a manner usually reserved for those sacred seconds right before a rock band takes the stage. His rally tonight on the UA Mall was greeted with much of the same fanfare. Vermont’s favorite son is still no slouch when it comes to bringing out crowds. Hundreds of supporters patiently lined the Mall as they waited for their candidate to speak. Conversations spontaneously sprouted in every direction—a young man explained China’s political system to an older MexicanAmerican couple, and just a few yards over a woman was extolling the virtues of 1972 Democratic presidential nominee George McGovern. These are likely a bit different from the conversations one might overhear at a Trump rally. Dissenters, as always, made themselves known. A woman with a veritable arsenal of hand-made Jill Stein signs walked the rows of attendees. A young freshman with a JohnsonWeld sign amiably flitted in and out of sight. Later on, a man dressed in full cowboy attire and draped in a Gadsden flag strode confidently away into the night. As the audience finally made their way into the pen, electricity buzzed and crackled again. After four introductory speakers and a small battery of microphone issues, Sen. Sanders strode out, embraced his friend Rep. Raul Grijalva and launched into a fiery tirade eerily similar to the stump speeches of primary campaign stops past. There was no wind coming from any direction, but the senator’s hair was still appropriately disheveled. It just added to the effect. The man has mastered the art of the applause line—nearly


every line crescendoed in time to fully appreciate the deafening roar of the crowd. The crowd reacted as they had last October to the same emphasis on wealth and income inequality, on the massive strides taken by the black and LGBTQ communities in recent decades. His mentions of Sec. Clinton were haphazard and perfunctory; the phrase “Hillary Clinton understands that …” appeared quite a bit, as if Sen. Sanders and we, his audience, were personally responsible for a former foe’s cometo-Jesus moment. It is for this reason that Sen. Sanders is only a semi-effective surrogate. He is a tremendous speaker—buoyed by the clear adoration of hundreds, his focus on the importance of people and issues in elections current and

future was both empowering and sober. However, it is difficult to believe that any Bernie-or-Buster would be swayed by what is essentially the same stump speech sprinkled with a few mentions of the former FLOTUS. To see the same “damn the torpedoes” energy used in the name of party unity is incongruous given that the capital-E “Establishment” he railed against in October are now many of the same people for whom he stumps. While the Democratic Party has struggled in the last year and a half with the rift created by the Sanders/Clinton schism, it has been a picture of unity compared to the rotting Ouroboros that is today’s GOP. When Sen. Sanders takes the stage, it is impossible not to think of the motley band of Republican elected officials who have

refused to endorse their party’s candidate. It is impossible not to think of the Bush clan, still smarting over the total emasculation of Jeb and their barely concealed loathing of Donald Trump. Many Democrats have touted the ease with which the party has closed ranks, undoubtedly thinking smugly of Sen. Ted Cruz working a Trump phone bank, his eyes twin pearls of defeat and misery. Ultimately, it’s bittersweet. Tonight, in the twilight’s last gleaming, the flag of true liberalism, battered, bruised and used, still flutters in the fall wind. Its most popular champion walks off into the night—saluted not by guns, but by the cheers of hundreds, and of course, the dulcet tones of a Bon Jovi song.

Hillary Clinton is still a feminist icon Hillary has had quite a variety of accusations mounted against her throughout the course of the campaign



residential candidate Hillary Clinton is a known feminist who has used her feminism in her platform throughout the presidential election, despite accusations against her husband about his history with women in the Oval Office two decades ago. Feminism as a movement has been on the rise and is currently popularizing among many young people, especially young females. Gender inequality is a hot-topic social issue that primarily liberals are trying to bring to fruition. The thirst for a strong female leader in 2016 draws in many of Hillary Clinton’s supporters. She has been involved in the world of American politics since 1979, when she became the First Lady of Arkansas to Bill Clinton.

Following her husband’s scandals in the White House, Hillary Clinton ran for Senate in New York. Not only did this position make her the first female senator of New York, it also made her the first-ever first lady of the United States to run for any elected office position. Hillary Clinton is a strong female leader because she is a go-getter and has paved the way for women as a feminist icon. Many argue, though, that Bill Clinton’s actions while in the White House are evidence of a demeaning history with women, and that if Hillary Clinton were a true feminist, she would not have stayed with him. Others say that a woman should not be blamed for the actions of her husband. This notion is the type of thing that women have been fighting for years—a woman being blamed for her husband’s actions obviously impedes the idea of female independence. Despite the public outrage against Bill Clinton following the outbreak of the Monica Lewinsky story, Hillary was still able to go on to be Senator of New York, Secretary of State and the first female presidential nominee of a major American political party.


It seems that America’s perception of the events that unfolded during the White House’s Clinton era inflated Hillary as a female leader. Before the scandal, she had served as a first lady for decades, but after the scandal, she found herself able to climb the political ladder. Bill Clinton’s actions didn’t make Hillary any less of a woman. While the scandal was still a current event, it happened at just the right time for feminists everywhere. Hillary rose to power, regardless of the impact her husband’s choices could have had on her life. The events that unfolded while Bill Clinton was president may have propelled her to get where she is today. Women were inspired by her confidence to put herself back in the public eye after facing scrutiny for her husband’s embarrassing end to his reign as president. Now that the years have passed, Hillary’s decision to stay with Bill is not as popular. Because she stayed with him after all of the accusations that he faced, she has to be careful to avoid sounding hypocritical with her opponent, Donald Trump.

In the current presidential election, Trump tries to use these events against her, but he has not been very successful due to his own track record with women. The disadvantage for Trump in this situation is that Bill Clinton’s actions are mostly behind closed doors, while Trump’s lack of filter is indisputable and easily recalled. Without a doubt, Hillary Clinton is a powerful woman that many women look up to because of her hard work and dedication, but in this election, Bill’s past with women is hurting more than it is helping. In this election it’s crucial—now more than ever—for Hillary to use her femininity to her advantage. Trump’s offensive behavior toward women deters a good portion of his potential voters. Hillary Clinton is the embodiment of a modern American woman who inspires women to do what they want to do. Hillary Clinton is still a feminist, regardless of Bill Clinton. She rose to where she is now, through her own hard work and bravery—not the actions of her husband.

Pick pumpkins, get spooked at Buckelew Farm The Buckelew family stays creative to keep an upper hand in agricultural entertainment with the 28th annual Buckelew Farm Pumpkin Festival BY ISAAC ANDREWS @isaacandone

The Buckelew Farm was purchased by Bob Buckelew in Three Points, Arizona, in 1956. Bob’s only son, Nick, moved to the farm in 1977 with his wife Laurie. The family grew mainly cotton and wheat until Nick grew his first pumpkin crop in 1989, thus commencing the annual Buckelew Farm Pumpkin Festival. Visitors would take a horse-drawn wagon into the field to pick pumpkins. Nick and Laurie had two children, Clint and Amy, who took over management positions in 2001 when the family opened a corn maze attraction. The the “haunted” corn field, Terror in the Corn, began in 2004. “The pricing kind of dictated how we came up with ideas,” Clint Buckelew said. “For example, when the cotton was a bad price, we had to think of other ways to make money to support the farm.” Buckelew studied business and agricultural economics at the UA and is one of many UA alumni in the Buckelew family. He said that agricultural entertainment, which began in the last 20 years, has provided the farm with innovative and fun ways to make more money. “Ag-entertainment is a big thing now,” Buckelew said. “We’re kind of focused on that.” The Festival has grown over time through Buckelew family generations and additions to the farm. STEVEN SPOONER/THE DAILY WILDCAT “It went from a couple hundred people for DON CARLINI, AN EMPLOYEE at Buckelew Farm, walks around his trailer on Oct. 17.

Tucson’s historic film community will showcase old films, new technology and screenings of 18 different feature narrative and documentary films at the Inaugural Film Fest Tucson this Thursday through Sunday. Film Fest Tucson’s director, Herb Stratford, has worked for the past year to put together this new volunteer-organized, four-day event. Stratford has been involved in the Tucson film community since the 1990s when he led the restoration of Fox Tucson Theatre, and he has returned to reinvigorate it once again after spending some years with the Napa Valley Film Festival. “The programming is different from other Tucson festivals, which target a niche audience,” Stratford said. “We don’t have any one kind of focus. The goal is to celebrate new independent films that are being created and may not have an opportunity to screen ... and to also continue to shine a light on Arizona’s film history.” Films have been made in Tucson since film began to grow into the Hollywood structure we all know now. Film Fest Tucson will show what Stratford calls heritage films: black and white silent films which will have live music accompaniment from local Tucson jazz and symphony artists. The film “Beast” will make its U.S. premier at Film Fest Tucson following its debut at the Toronto International Film Festival. One of the film’s writers, Will Jaymes, who attended the UA himself for a year, will visit along with the film. There will be two free events this weekend, including a panel with award-winning sound mixer Gary Rizzo. Rizzo works as a re-recording mixer at Skywalker Sound and worked with Christopher Nolan on “Interstellar,” “The Dark Knight,” “Inception,” and “Suicide Squad.” The second free event is focused on the work of UA English professor Jennifer Jenkins. She will present “Celluloid Pueblo,” a celebration of the work by Western Ways, which shared images of Tucson in the 1930s and 1940s. Through “Celluloid,” Jenkins hopes to win over the rest of

Fourth Ave. brings Oktoberfest to Tucson BY CHLOE RAISSEN @chloeraissen

Music and beer lovers will be transported to Bohemia at Fourth Avenue’s Oktoberfestthemed festivities this Saturday. Held annually in Munich, Germany, the festival traditionally lasts for around 16 days and attracts beer lovers from all over the world. Tucson will celebrate Oktoberfest here with the first annual 4thtoberfest on Saturday from 1-7 p.m. at various locations on and around Fourth Avenue. The event is open to anyone 21 and over and will feature live music, locally made craft brews and specialty bratwurst. Specialty brews include assorted options such as Huss’ Rice Pudding Porter at The Flycatcher and Sentinel Peak’s Peach Farmhouse Ale at Cafe Passe. The event also has a handful of breweries that are brewing beers exclusively crafted for 4thtoberfest, along with some

with first-time tappings. Thunder Canyon’s Oatmeal Stout, Catalina Brewing Company’s Twin Poles and Pueblo Vida’s coconut-infused porter were manufactured exclusively for the event. Dragoon Brewing Company will unveil a brand-new, German-style doppelbock called Bruck Bock. “I wanted to make a big, dark, strong beer,” said Chelsea Blue, Dragoon Brewing Company’s the marketing and events director. The traditional bratwursts found at Oktoberfest will be available for purchase at 4thtoberfest along with various adaptations to the classic Bavarian dish. Ermano’s Craft Beer and Wine Bar will serve the Pueblo Vida, a Bavarian hefeweizen infused bratwurst with Ermano’s housefermented sauerkraut and sweet ‘n’ spicy dijon mustard. “[Ermano’s] is a bar full of good people who love good beer and good food,” said Bryan Miller, the

general manager for Ermano’s. The traditional dish will be presented by a local German butcher who will prepare the sausages to be sold at Che’s Lounge. “[4thtoberfest] is a fun way to get people on Fourth Avenue,” said Laura Reese, owner of Storyteller Public Relations. Reese’s company is coordinating this Saturday’s festivities and partnering with the locally owned bars on Fourth Avenue to give visitors the authentic experience of Oktoberfest. The event will be held in nine different locations along Fourth Avenue. Beer tastings and Bratwurst plates will be held in the various bars and restaurants. Entrance to the event is free, and a $15 wristband includes a five-ounce logo glass and eight tasting tickets redeemable for all the local brews. Proceeds from Fourthtoberfest will go to the non-profit community radio station, KXCI 91.3 FM. A portion of the wristband sales will be donated


DAVID TENEN, FACILITIES SUPERVISOR at Dragoon Brewing Company, pours beer fresh from the tap on Tuesday, Oct. 18 in Tucson, Ariz. Dragoon Brewing Company will be among one of the many craft beer distributors participating in 4thtoberfest on Saturday, Oct. 22 on Fourth Avenue in downtown Tucson.

WORKERS NEAR COMPLETION ON the new C.A.T.S. Academic Center south of McKale Center on the UA campus on Wednesday, Oct. 18. One of the Athletic Department’s goals is to graduate student athletes, similar to the UA soccer team’s goal, and this center is aimed toward that ambition.


Burdett said. “When you have downtime, you use that time to do homework and anything else you need to do for school.” Weeks like these are routine for the Wildcats during the season, which spans from August to November. “You just have to stay in touch with classmates and stay up with class notes and get those so you’re not too far behind,” said Arizona midfielder Gabi Stoian, who doubled as Arizona’s points leader and a Pac-12 All-Academic Honorable Mention in 2015. Because their season coincides with the start of the academic year, the student-athletes are only allowed to take a maximum of four classes—12 units— during the fall semester. “Personally, I try to take easier classes


in the 2016-2017 season. They have the speedsters, they have skill guys, they have the grinders and, most importantly, they have a returning team captain in left winger Carter—something they haven’t had in a long time. “Without question, Carter is the engine that makes us go,” Berman told UA hockey media. “He’s a natural leader that sets the tone with his work ethic. It’s the small details in his game that really stand out. A great example would be last year’s overtime game-winner in the National Tournament. It was easy to recognize the beautiful play between the Hogan twins. That play doesn’t have a chance to develop without Carter’s gutsy back check, sending the play the other way.” Defenseman Matt Armenti looks to make a strong pairing with fellow defenseman Nick Zellmer. They complement each other well on the ice, both standing at 6-foot-1.

in the fall and make my schedule a little bit easier,” said Stoian, who has one class each on Monday, Tuesday and Thursday and two classes on Wednesday. “I’m signed up for five classes next semester and a lab. I try to fill my spring schedule a little more than the fall one.” While a loaded schedule consiting of practices, workouts, games and road trips can make grades feel secondary at times, they can’t be overlooked. After all, that’s why the student-athletes are in Tucson in the first place. “As much time as we commit to soccer and want to perform on the field and be the best that we can, we also know that we have to keep our grades up and we’re here to graduate in four years,” Stoian said. “It’s tough, but you learn to balance.” The Arizona soccer team has done so quite well.

The line of Orion Olsen, Roy Grandov and Tyler Griffith looks to be the grinding line—the guys who aren’t afraid to go the extra mile, chase down pucks and block shots. Berman also said goalies Austin Wilson and Garrett Patrick are both candidates to be in net this season, and that they will both be competing for a starting job. Goalie Warren Hill is also making strides in the right direction. The excitement around this team is palpable, as everyone in the organization believes this year’s squad has the chance to be a very special team. The IceCats have started off the season at 4-2 after taking three games from NAU and one from the University of Central Oklahoma, before dropping two to the Oklahoma Sooners. The No. 15 IceCats next face No. 19 ASU in Tempe on Friday at 7 p.m.

Build Your Own Smoothie Smoothies are a great option because they are quick, easy, convenient, and a great way to add vitamins, minerals, fiber, antioxidants, and protein to your diet. Unfortunately, a lot of store-bought smoothies are loaded with added sugars, making it easy to suck down a high calorie drink without the nutrients or fiber you need to stay satisfied. So what’s the solution? You guessed it – build your own! Use the guide and tips below to create a balanced, whole-foods smoothie.

Choose 1 ingredient from List A, 2 from List B, 1 from List C (optional), and add 1 cup of ice (less ice if using frozen fruit). Blend until smooth and enjoy!

List A

• 1 cup skim or 1% low-fat milk • 1 cup soy milk (plain or vanilla) • 1 cup almond milk (plain or vanilla) • 1 cup rice milk • 1 cup fat free or low fat yogurt (flavored or plain) • 1 cup water

List B (fresh or frozen) • 1 banana, peeled • 1 cup berries • 1 cup pineapple • 1 apple, peeled • 1 cup melon • 1 kiwi, peeled • 1 cup peaches, peeled • 1/2 cup papaya, peeled • 1 cup grapes

List C (optional)

• 2 cups spinach • 1 cup kale leaves • 1 cup romaine lettuce • 1/2 avocado

Additional Ingredients

Add 1-2 tablespoons of chia or ground flax seed (good sources of healthy fats), peanut butter or almond butter (adds protein and creates thicker texture), wheat germ (packed with protein, iron, B-Vitamins, fiber and more!), oats (helps lower cholesterol and provide long lasting energy), or 1/2-1 scoop of your favorite protein powder.

Tips and Tricks • Add liquid to the blender first. It’s easier on the blender and gets things moving faster. • Try frozen fruits in place of fresh fruits. Fresh fruit can go bad within days, but frozen fruit lasts much longer. Also, frozen fruit will save you time! • Fresh fruit about to go bad? Wash it, cut it, and store it in the freezer in a freeze-safe baggie for later use. • Make smoothies ahead for a perfect fast food. Store in an airtight container and shake well before opening.

THE ARIZONA WOMEN’S SOCCER team celebrates after the first goal of its win against Oregon State at Murphey Field at Mulcahy Soccer Stadium on Oct. 25, 2015. The Wildcats excelled in the classroom with a 3.13 team GPA.

Wildcats soccer receives Academic Excellence Award BY RYAN KELAPIRE @RKelapireUA

The Arizona soccer team was a recipient of the College Team Academic Award for the 2015-2016 academic year, the NSCAA announced last Thursday. The award was given to teams that demonstrated “exemplary performance in the classroom as a team during the 2015-2016 academic year,” according to the NSCAA’s website. Teams needed to have a team GPA of 3.0 or higher to qualify for the honor, and Arizona checked in at 3.13. Then-senior Sheaffer Skadsen was named as an Academic All-American by the College Sports Information Directors of America in 2015, being one of two players in the country to hold a 4.0 GPA. Two players —Jaden DeGracie-Bailey and Lexe Selman Richards—were named to Pac-12 All-Academic teams and eight other Wildcats were honorable mentions. Arizona had a 14-6-2 record on the field in 2015, making it to the Sweet Sixteen of the NCAA Tournament for the second time in program history. “You want to be a complete program in all aspects,” Arizona head coach Tony Amato said. “And that’s a part of it, and we’re always proud of that, and want to make sure that’s our minimum standard— that we’re getting recognized as a whole for achieving that NSCAA award—and hopefully even push them beyond that.” The team’s success in the classroom is a reflection of Amato’s history as a studentathlete. The head coach, who’s a graduate of Rollins College in Winter Park, Florida,

was the Student-Athlete of the Year his senior season in 2000 and received Academic All-American and Sunshine State Conference Scholar-Athlete of the Year honors during his four-year career. “It is important to me. I did my master’s degree; I was a good student as a studentathlete and hopefully that can kind of bleed from me into the team in that way that I approach that,” he said. Amato is constantly reminding his players to attend class and tutoring sessions to keep them focused on their studies. “I go to academic meetings with our academic advisors and I read progress reports,” Amato said. “And I think the team knows I’m pretty connected to that.” It can be easy for his players to get off track, as one could imagine. The team usually practices twice every week, has two games every week and, occasionally, almost week-long road trips. This week, for instance, the Wildcats practice in Tucson on Monday and Tuesday then travel to Eugene, Oregon, on Wednesday for a Thursday-night match against the Ducks. Once that match concludes, they’ll head to Corvallis, Oregon, to play Oregon State on Sunday, before traveling back to Tucson. That doesn’t include the time spent shuttling between hotels and restaurants or scurrying through airport terminals. In short, there’s not a lot of time for schoolwork. “It’s tough for sure. You’re just so focused on soccer and everything and you’re tired from that, but you have to buckle down,” Arizona goalkeeper Lainey

Chad Berman, entering his third season as the head coach of the Arizona Wildcats’ hockey team, has set high expectations for his squad. He believes something special is brewing for the university’s club team. “Coming to a program that was depleted and not successful ... gave me the opportunity as first-time head coach to come in and make it my own,” Berman said. Having flushed away the remnants of what was once a mediocre program, Berman has recruited some of hockey’s elite prospects, installed a family atmosphere in the locker room and built a team capable of making a run at the American Collegiate Hockey Association Championship this spring. With a talented team captain in Dylan Carter, the hype surrounding this team is beyond legit. “We are much deeper than we were last season; down to the last guy on our roster, there is talent on this team,” Berman said. “In one recruiting class along, we are already a stronger, faster and much more skilled, which is a huge improvement.” The dynamic twin duo of John Hogan and Brian “Toppie” Hogan will once again be at Arizona’s helm. Considering the twin pairing combined for 12 goals, 14 assists and 26 points last year, it would be in good faith to think they will be factors for this season’s team. Top newcomer Robert Sythe will look

to make a name for himself as the former elite prospect enters a new of level play and with that, has high expectations of his own. “Sythe is going to have a chance at making the World University Game for team USA coming up,” Berman said. “He’s got a pro shot, [is an] extremely talented kid and is a no-brainer to hve an impact on this team.” If the team can remain consistent throughout the season and “go the extra mile and be great,” as Berman puts it, the Wildcats could be able to make a deep run. Arizona entered the season ranked No. 14 in the pre-season nationwide poll, but also started a new campaign without an overwhelming weakness in the Western Collegiate Hockey League. There will be no easy matchup for the Wildcats this season, as eight of the teams they face this year are ranked in the ACHA Division I pre-season top 25. Facing the top teams in the country could be just what Berman needs to get the very best out of this players, or it could derail the season all together. Diving into the schedule, the games against No. 19 ASU promise to be the most entertaining and possibly heartbreaking. Other standout games feature a home game against No. 2 Minot State, a small school in North Dakota, and a near crosscountry trip to face Arkansas, No. 20 in the pre-season poll. In terms of the roster, this team has all the makings to be a very exciting one


You may be surprised that just 2-4 drinks in one hour will land most drinkers above .08 blood alcohol concentration (BAC). Your BAC depends on four factors: weight, gender, time, and strength of the drinks. While you can control how much and how fast you drink, weight and gender aren’t changeable in one evening. A standard drink is 12 ounces of beer or 4 oz. of wine or 1 ounce shot of 80 proof liquor (40% ethanol). Every standard drink that a 140 pound woman consumes will raise her BAC .032. So, 3 drinks x .032 puts her at .96, which is over the legal DUI limit of .08 for those 21 and older. Every standard drink that a 180 male consumes will raise his BAC .02. Four standard drinks would put him right at .08. To see how weight and gender affect BAC see the tables to the right.

Women 100 lbs. 140 lbs. 180 lbs.

BAC/drink .045 .032 .025

Men 140 lbs. 180 lbs. 220 lbs.

BAC/drink .026 .020 .017

Why such a big difference in how alcohol affects men and women? Weight is big factor. Females generally weigh less than men and they have less alcohol dehydrogenase (the liver enzyme that metabolizes alcohol) than males. Men typically have more muscle mass than women – which helps dilute alcohol in the blood stream. To stay safer when drinking alcohol, it’s recommended that women limit themselves to one standard drink an hour and men limit drinks to one or two drinks per hour. With moderate drinking, you likely will have better times, better memories, and fewer regrets.

SEAN MILLER Keeping Arizona relevant and looking to make it legendary


Many may not remember the state of Arizona basketball in 2010, but the program has come a long way from what Sean Miller inherited. The hangover from legendary coach Lute Olson was still in full effect as Arizona had gone through Russ Pennell and Kevin O’Neill before Miller. The former Pittsburgh point guard was shining with the Xavier Musketeers at the time, as Miller led them to back-to-back seasons with a top-10 ranking. Miller actually led them to Sweet Sixteen and Elite Eight appearances. Xavier reached the Elite Eight in 2008, only to be knocked off by UCLA. The Musketeers’ Sweet Sixteen run in 2009 included a win over Wisconsin in what would turn out to be Miller’s last year with Xavier. His alma matter, No. 1 seed Pittsburgh—which included future NBA players Sam Young and DeJuan Blair— booted Miller from the tournament. Arizona struggled in Miller’s first season with the Wildcats, finishing 16-15 in the 2009-2010 season. But that was the first and only time Arizona has won less than 20 games with him at the helm. Miller has given Wildcat fans countless big-time players in a short period of time that have made their mark on the Pac-12 Conference. From Derrick Williams and Solomon Hill to T.J. McConnell and Nick Johnson, his players have been tough, energetic winners in the conference. Miller has had the Wildcats ranked in the top 15 every year—exluding that 2009-2010 season—and in the top 10 in five of his last six seasons. The Wildcats are consistently among the best defensive teams in the nation, and the stars buy into Miller’s system. What made McConnell, Johnson, Aaron Gordon and others so special was that they bought into his defensive mandates. If your star players are diving for loose balls and harassing ball handlers, why wouldn’t you? Sure, Miller still has not reached a Final Four. But most sports pundits would tell you it has to happen soon. Miller keeps bringing in top class after top class; the

bounces just keep going the opposite way come tourney time. The Wildcats ran into Kemba Walker and a determined UConn team in 2011, and who can forget Wisconsin? Twice. Badgers vs. Wildcats Round One featured a Brandon Ashley-less team that saw the Wildcats almost reach that elusive Final Four—until the final seconds. Badgers vs. Wildcats Round

Two saw Sam Dekker—a career 34 percent 3-point shooter—go 5-for-6 from beyond the arc while Wisconsin went an uncharacteristic 12-for-18 as a team. He has won three conference Coach of the Year awards and six regular season championships in just 12 years of coaching. His successes have not been flukes, and one must think Miller’s turn will come in the near future.

The 2017-2018 Wildcats team has the potential to outshine the current one with the recruiting class Miller is slated to bring in. Led by top-ranked recruit DeAndre Ayton, Arizona’s 2017 class is currently first in the nation with four-stars Brandon Randolph and Alex Barcello also in the fold. Miller will look to take the next step for Arizona basketball this year.
