Low budget, high concern By Luke Money ARIZONA DAILY WILDCAT Arizona’s financial woes continued to dominate discussion at the latest meeting of the UA Faculty Senate on Monday in the James E. Rogers College of Law. Charlene Ledet, the director of the Legislative Advocacy Program for the Office of State Relations , estimated Arizona’s total budget shortfall will exceed $800 million in 2011, and could top $1.4 billion in 2012 after federal stimulus monies

are exhausted. Ledet did say those figures could be mitigated somewhat if Proposition 301 and 302 are passed in today’s elections. Proposition 301 would take money from the state’s land conservation trust program, and 302 would eliminate the “First Things First” program, which places money raised from taxes on state sales of tobacco products and uses it to fund early childhood education and development . If both measures are approved, approximately $450

million raised for these programs would be diverted to the state’s general fund. There is no binding stipulation in either of these measures that would shift those funds to education. Her concern was echoed by UA President Robert Shelton , who pointed out the economic benefits of a strong state education system. John Ulreich , a representative from the College of the Humanities, spoke on what he perceives to be the shrinking role of humanities in educa-

tion. Namely, he cited a shift toward a cost-effectiveness education approach and away from traditional focuses in education. “When we drift into the language of corporate America, we talk about enterprise models as we are basically forced to do, I think we’ve lost our way,” he said. Ulreich also extolled the values of a well-rounded and educated population. “If education fails, I don’t want to think about what will happen SENATE, page 3

Q& AUS raid’s effects filmed By Brenna Goth ARIZONA DAILY WILDCAT

Director Luis Argueta visited the UA on Monday for a screening of his newly completed documentary, “AbUSed: the Postville Raid.” The film explores the Immigrations and Customs Enforcement raid of a Postville, Iowa, meat-packing plant in May 2008, during which 389 undocumented workers were arrested. Argueta interviewed some of these workers, many of whom were deported, as well as social workers and community members. Argueta was born in Guatemala and immigrated to the United States. His work mainly focuses on issues concerning Guatemala.

On Election Day, be sure to take information to prove residency and voting eligibility when heading to a local polling place to cast the midterm 2010 ballot. The polling place will have a sign-in table, which will require your legal name and signature in order to receive your ballot. A marking pen and an optional secrecy sleeve are also available before entering the secrecy booth. Fill in the ovals next to the candidate of choice, place completed ballots in the black ballot boxes, and grab a “I VOTED” sticker. Filled ballots are scanned and tallied, and misread ballots are returned automatically.

In the nationwide nursing shortage, nurses from minority groups are especially hard to come by. The UA College of Nursing recently received a grant that will be used to support Hispanic and Native American students in the field. The nearly $400,000 comes from the U.S. Department of Education’s Graduate Assistance in Areas of National Need grant . The grants provide scholarships for students pursuing the highest degrees possible in various fields. “We have a severe shortage of Hispanic and Native American nurses,” said Terry Badger, professor and director of community and systems health science division in the College of Nursing . “What it allows us to do is provide support for students who are underrepresented among nurses who have Ph.Ds.” While Arizona’s population is 29 percent Hispanic and 5 percent Native American,

How do you see yourself as a filmmaker? “I am an American filmmaker who tells stories about my country of origin and my adopted country. I live in one of the most diverse cities in the U.S., which is New York, and I truly believe that what this country stands for is worth fighting for, and I think the story of Postville is a story that everyone should know.” How were you able to get immigrants to share their stories? “If you know Guatemalans, we’re very closed. They began talking at the beginning, but I realized this was not the whole story. It took more than one trip for people to realize that I was serious. It also helped that I spoke Spanish, Guatemalan Spanish. No, it wasn’t easy, but finally they did. Also, when I would go back and bring back pictures of their family or take

SAN FRANCISCO — A federal appeals court, reviewing Arizona’s tough new immigration law while protestors outside shouted and waved signs, suggested during a hearing Monday that the state may be permitted to require police to investigate the immigration status of suspected criminals and yet be powerless to do anything about a person’s illegal residency. During an hourlong hearing, the 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals examined four provisions of the new Arizona law that a federal judge in Phoenix blocked as unconstitutional. The three-judge appeals panel appeared largely inclined to agree with the lower court’s July ruling, which said the law usurped the federal government’s sole authority to regulate immigration. But the appeals panel expressed skepticism with part of the ruling that blocked the state from requiring police to at least investigate the immigration status of someone stopped on suspicion of a crime. After a lawyer for the federal government told the court the provision was illegal, a frustrated Judge John T. Noonan Jr., a moderate Republican appointee, SB1070, page 5

communication junior Do you know anything about the upcoming election tomorrow? Are you going to be voting? I do plan on voting but I don’t really know much about it. I don’t really know anything. You’re going to be on Google tonight, aren’t you? Yeah, Google tonight, searching everything about this election. So you’re going to vote, but you don’t know who is running or what they are advocating? I know they have commercials on the radio and ads on TV about it, and they kind of like harass each other and put each other down, which I don’t like but, guess I’ll vote for Jan. Does it ever bring you back to your high school days of student government where everyone was running around? Yeah! When people wanted to be president and vice president, and I would vote for them. It would be such a big deal to be on the TV and everything during homeroom. Did you ever run for anything in high school? No, I didn’t, a lot of my friends did but, not me. There are five weeks left in the semester, how are you feeling about that? I’m very nervous because my friend just broke it down for me. We have something every single weekend and then Thanksgiving, and then there’s only one week left, and then it’s dead day, and then it’s finals, and then I’m halfway done with my junior year, and I’m studying abroad next semester so I’m going to come back, and it’s going to be senior year, and it’s just flying by way too fast.

Tucson school children are led on a march from the UA Mall on Monday to see displays set up in the César E. Chávez building as part of a celebration for the Day of the Dead. The event was organized by the Spanish department and the Chicano Hispano Center to show the various facets of the holiday, including how altars are used and what kinds of candy are eaten.

Recycled pee: Future of tap water Someday, millions of Americans will be drinking their own urine, says Robert Roy Britt, managing editor of LiveScience. com, a news site that prides itself on the provocative approach it takes to science. In a recent commentary for the site, Britt, based in arid Phoenix, said that because of imminent drought in the West, many people will have to rely on treated sewage — containing human waste — for their drinking water. “We now have too many people living in places where we don’t have fresh water,” Britt said.

As an example, Britt cited the Phoenix area, which gets its drinking water from a remote body of reservoirs, including Lake Mead, which sits more than 230 miles away. He suggested that Phoenix and other cities throughout the Southwest may soon go the way of Orange County, Calif., which does exactly what he’s foretold — it recycles wastewater into tap water. That’s right. From the toilet bowl to the punch bowl, so to speak. Of course, the trip isn’t without its stops. Orange County takes “highly treated” sewer

water and sends it through various filtration and purification processes, until the final product exceeds the standards for most drinking water. The water is then seeped back into the aquifer, where it blends with natural water that eventually makes it to the tap. While the treatment takes only about 45 minutes, the water can sit in the ground for up to two years, according to Jason Dadakis, director of health and regulatory affairs for the Orange County Water District. — AOL News

Recipients hope to motivate others

Courtesy of Shawn Murray

Shawn Murray, a graduate student in the College of Nursing, is one of three UA College of Nursing students to receive a fellowship to support Hispanic and Native American graduate students.

only 4 percent of nurses are Hispanic and less than 1 percent are Native American, Badger said. The grant is being used to provide fellowships to Native American and Hispanic students in the Ph.D. program. Three Hispanic students received the fellowship this year, which includes full tuition and fees as well as a stipend of up to $30,000 per year. The fellowship is renewable for up to five years. Five students applied for the scholarship. Out of 60 students in the doctorate program, between eight and 10 were eligible, according to Badger. Celia Besore, executive director and CEO of the National Association of Hispanic Nurses, said nurses need to represent the population they serve. “Hispanic nurses are a very, very small minority,” Besore said. “The Hispanic population is growing. Hispanic nurses should be represented at least in the same proportion as the general population.” Besore said part of this disparity is due to a lack of resources.

“Some of it is a lack of scholarships,” Besore said. “Perhaps a lack of encouragement by some people.” Shawn Murray, a graduate student in the College of Nursing, received the fellowship. Murray said she “never really thought about” being a minority and didn’t consider the lack of Hispanic nurses until after she applied for the scholarship. “I don’t really remember a lot of nurses of color or race,” Murray said. “I guess we are a minority.” Murray said she is the first person in her immediate family to graduate college and the only one in her extended family to pursue nursing. “If I can do it, anybody can,” Murray said. “It’s just persistence.” The fellowship recipients must also commit to teaching as a member of nursing faculty for four years upon graduation. Badger said their position in academia will help attract other minority students. “A major barrier to increasing (the number of Native American and Hispanic nurses) is that we have a lack of faculty mentors and role models,” Badger said. “Members of these groups will have a role model by having a faculty member.” Besore said her organization provides Hispanic nursing students with mentors for the same purpose. “They need the encouragement,” Besore said. “They need to see people who are successful, and I think the numbers will change.” Murray said she entered nursing to interact with people and wants to help others do the same. “I hope I do motivate people to consider it.”

pictures of their grandchildren who lived here to grandparents that lived (in Guatemala), a link was established that made it easier. At that point, it wasn’t so much about telling a story as it was to accompany them in this journey.” What effect did the raid have on Postville? “It was totally traumatic. Psychologists and academics have studied what happened, and everyone agreed that posttraumatic stress syndrome was present, not only in the immigrant workers and the immigrant children but on the U.S. people, on the U.S. children because they played with the immigrant children at school … The town was devastated because this plant, which was a major employer, lost over half its workforce … It was a chain reaction on the economic side.” What was Postville like nearly two years after the raid? (Argueta returned last March.) “There are some changes. The plant was sold to a Canadian owner. It is still not working at 100 percent capacity. They began killing cattle in the spring, but while they used to kill 500 cattle a day, they’re down to

about half. That also shows that the migrants were doing work that no one else wants to do.” How does Postville relate to the larger picture of immigration in the United States? “By being the case that it is, the largest immigration raid at a single worksite at the time, it showed really some of the major problems with immigration. There was an industry, there was a town, that was benefiting from the work that these people did. And there is a factory, and there is a town, that has not recuperated from the trauma, the economic trauma and the psychological trauma. Even though we do not have worksite raids now the way we did in Postville, we have what’s called soft raids or paper raids, and the effect is the same. Large numbers of people get fired, families get separated, and the economic and psychological effects are still the same … (Postville) was a real low in our legal history … Postville, in that sense, is a real example of how we have begun to criminalize immigrants. And we are cutting our nose to spite our face.” What would you like to see

in U.S. immigration policy? “I think that one of the most important things about immigration reform is for national security. We can’t have 11 million or 12 million people here and not know who they are. On the other hand, the benefits are very clear. They are wage earners; they’re making money for companies. I think we have to be pragmatic. You cannot deport 12 million people. It is impractical, impossible … There should be paths to citizenship at different points. Backgrounds should be checked. The Obama administration said they’re focusing on the criminal element, but that’s not the truth … It’s not working the way it’s designed. We’re still deporting 1,077 people a day, and a lot of those are without criminal records. We are affecting our community. So I think we need a rational immigration reform that looks at things the way they are … I think that one element I would like to see in the discussion of immigration is to look at immigrants not as ‘the other ’ but as ourselves. While there are enemies of this country that want to harm us, not everyone who’s coming over the border out of desperation is an enemy.”

Cut humanities, undercut education

to government,” he added. He was also quick to caution that problems facing the humanities could easily spread to other areas of academia. “I think the humanities are just the canary in the coal mine,” Uhlreich said. “And our ill health is a symptom of a much larger problem that is increasingly eroding public support for public education and, in so doing, is also eroding democratic institutions which

are all founded ultimately on the idea that an educated public … can be trusted, trusted to govern ourselves.” Shelton also stressed the importance of fostering good relationships with the Arizona Legislature. “We have some in the Legislature that don’t want to hear anything, but most of them do want to hear from us,” Shelton said. “We have to ask them in a way that makes sense and reminds them that we

are an investment, not a drain on the state’s coffers.” Specifically, Shelton emphasized the importance of communicating in a way that will appeal to legislators. “We are challenged as never before and the way we are trying to deal with this is to use the right language … and to continue to work closely with the many legislators that I think are really trying to find ways to move the state of Arizona forward.”

EDITORIAL Thank God it’s finally Election Day


ou know that recurring dream in which you’re running and running toward something, but never catch it? Instead, you wake up frustrated, having just brushed your fingertips against whatever mysterious entity you’ve been chasing. And you know how, after that particular dream, it doesn’t feel like you’ve slept at all? That’s how the lead up to today’s midterm elections felt. It’s as if we’ve been moving inexorably toward a day that would never actually come. Americans have been through the wringer these last few months. Arizona Gov. Jan Brewer uttered (or rather, failed to utter) the awkward pause heard round the world. Arizona Sen. John McCain went from maverick to not-so-much at record speed. Delaware Senatorial candidate Christine O’Donnell was a witch, then wasn’t a witch, then suddenly was just “you.” Democrats all over the country bullied and belittled their bases, then begged for their votes. And candidates, pundits and average citizens slung so much mud, it felt more like a frat party in a Van Wilder movie than anything so grown-up as major elections. No wonder we’re exhausted. But unlike that dream, where the thing you’re chasing never actually materializes, all the dirty, fearful, uncivilized nonsense of the midterm election season will actually culminate in something fairly civilized: an election. By now, the ballots have been cast, or are about to be. Exit polls are beginning to emerge, and the next several years of American politics are taking shape. For better or worse — our money’s on better — it’s all going to be over soon. Now, the real work starts. Now it’s time to watch the leaders elected today take the helm and actually lead, rather than pose and preen on TV spots and at stump speeches. Hopefully, we’ll see that we’ve collectively made the right choices and voted into office individuals who will represent their constituents and their nation admirably. In all likelihood, though, at least half the population won’t feel that way at all. And therein lies the nation’s most important task. Because tomorrow, like it or not, it’s over. All the money and campaigning and slick speech-making in the world won’t be able to alter the outcome, and Americans of all political stripes will have to get on with their lives and continue to work with and trust their government. In Arizona, that may be particularly difficult. In most state races, the Republican and Democratic candidates have painted themselves as diametric opposites. Negative campaigning has given voters the impression that if the wrong candidate is elected, all kinds of apocalyptic events will ensue. Social Security payments will dry up instantly or a horde of bloodthirsty Mexican drug lords will pour across the border, depending on which party you’re listening to. In reality, none of that’s true. Whoever wins these elections will have the responsibility of making some tough, important calls in Arizona, on issues ranging from the border to health care to funding education. But the world we live in isn’t going to disappear overnight. That’s what’s so great about democracy. No one person — indeed, no one party — has the ability to make that happen. Now that election season is over, perhaps we can turn the volume of American politics down a few notches and remember that, win or lose, we’re lucky to live in a country whose government we actually choose. Nov. 3 should not be a day on which the winners gloat and the losers sulk. Instead, both parties should step off the campaign trail for a moment and acknowledge that regardless of today’s outcome, elected officials are still going to have to work together. The kind of partisanship that has marred this election mustn’t be a part of the newly elected officials’ governing strategy, lest the government itself grind to a screeching halt. The theatrics are over; now, it’s time to govern. After all, before you know it, the 2012 presidential campaign will be in full swing. Enjoy the relative sanity while it lasts. — Editorials are determined by the Daily Wildcat opinions board and written by one of its members.

Football player’s behavior an asset to the UA

I would like to report an incident that occurred this last Saturday, at the Hilton Los Angeles North/Glendale Hotel with one of your football players. In the interest of disclosure, I would like to state that I live in Texas and have a daughter that attends USC in Los Angeles. My wife and I brought our parents out to Los Angeles this past weekend to see our daughter and attend the USC-Oregon football game. Several of us were on the elevator early Saturday morning when an Arizona football player got on as well on the next floor; he looked like a player and had on his Arizona sweat clothes. He entered the elevator and looked straight at me and stated, “Good morning, sir.” He then looked at the other people on the elevator and said, “Good morning.” He looked to me like he was about 19 years old. He then held the door open for everyone as we got

off the elevator. It is very rare that I meet someone this young that is so composed, confident and courteous. In a day when it seems that there is a lot of negative press regarding college football players when away from the game, it is refreshing to see that there is also another side. In the future I will not remember that Arizona beat UCLA. I will always remember that I met an extremely polite, poised young man that represented Arizona football. I am sure Arizona is pleased with the win over UCLA.  I am positive you are even more pleased and proud on how your players conduct themselves on the road whenever no one from your school is watching.

On ‘Med students bust border barriers’ This club is a joke. There is an obvious lack of communication here at UA because there are several clubs across campus that do the exact SAME thing. i.e. go to Nogales and volunteer at a clinic blah blah. The title of this article is misleading “Med Students...” in hopes that pre-medical student reads it and joins the club (waste of time). It is obvious that the club president “invented” this club so she can put it on

her resume for medical school. Give me a break and stop feeling “entitled” as if you are already in medical school … I believe that the Daily Wildcat had no right to highlight this club because they do NOT take the time to highlight all clubs across campus. I know this would be impossible if their newspaper were to take the time but if they choose to highlight one club they should offer to highlight all clubs across campus!

American politics are crazy but could be worse Andrew Shepherd


Arizona Daily Wildcat

oday is the day. It’s finally here — that first Tuesday after the first Monday in November we call Election Day. After today, we no longer have to hear about how Gabrielle Giffords cut Medicare, or how Jesse Kelly is looking to radically revamp Social Security. If there’s one thing we’ve learned from the last election cycle, it’s that American politics are crazy. From tales of Christine O’Donnell’s past flirtations with witchcraft to Rand Paul’s supposed worship of “Aqua Buddha” as a pothead teenager, politics and the media coverage around it are absolutely nuts. This campaign season was especially nasty, with countless attack ads and 24 hours of constant spin coming from Fox News and MSNBC. However, this season doesn’t exactly represent a new low for American politics. As history shows us, times have been much worse. To put things into perspective, and make the American people feel a little better about themselves, let’s examine some of the darkest moments of American politics. The Corrupt Bargain — During the presidential election of 1824, no candidate received a majority of the votes, so it was up to the House of Representatives to decide who would be the nation’s next leader. Andrew Jackson had received a plurality of both the popular vote and the Electoral College, but instead the House chose John Quincy Adams. It is largely believed that Speaker of the House Henry Clay was able to convince the House to side with Adams. After the House chose Adams, it was

announced that Clay would become Secretary of State. While the House’s decision to elect Adams wasn’t corrupt, the fact that Clay was named to a very important cabinet post after playing such an large role in influencing the House’s decision most certainly was. The Whiskey Ring — In 1875, a huge scandal was revealed to the American public. During the era of Civil War Reconstruction, Republican politicians, collaborating with tax collectors, were able to divert revenue from taxes on alcohol to a network of distillers, which was used as a campaign fund. The city of St. Louis alone saw more than a million dollars of lost revenue due to the scheme. When the operation was finally made public, it became known that highranking members of Ulysses S. Grant’s administration were involved, including his private secretary and the chief clerk of the Treasury Department. Tammany Hall — The overly powerful Democratic Party political machine known as Tammany Hall was exceptionally corrupt and controlled the politics of New York City for decades. In 1869, William Tweed, perhaps the most notorious political boss in American history, was able to use a system of bribes to ensure the machine’s political dominance. He and his associates had control of the city’s books, as well as the court system, and were able to use taxpayer money to funnel excessive amounts of money to government contractors, guaranteeing their political loyalty. In 1871, the scandal was made public and Boss Tweed lost his influence.

However, Tammany Hall remained an effective political institution until the 1960s. Watergate — Need I say more? McCarthyism — After World War II, Americans were deathly afraid of communism and its possible spread to the United States. In 1953, Sen. Joseph McCarthy used his position as chairman of the Senate Permanent Subcommittee on Investigations to create hearings to investigate whether certain Americans had ties with communism. The committee held 169 hearings between 1953 and 1954 and acted like a modernday witch hunt. People became even more afraid of the possible communists living among them. In addition, many members of the entertainment industry were denied employment due to suspected pro-communist political beliefs. These hearings tore at the fabric of American society and constituted what is known as the Second Red Scare. Of course there are many more examples of past political scandals; America’s political history is far from perfect. We can breathe a sigh of relief that the current state of American politics isn’t nearly as bad as it has been in the past. To our knowledge, we no longer have political parties breaking into each other’s headquarters, or politicians funneling tax money into corrupt political machines. Nonetheless, we do have our own problems: the media tells us how to think and not simply the facts, big business has too large of an influence over campaigns, the electorate is uninformed and, most importantly, the country is too bitterly divided. However, the next time somebody tells you they have given up on politics, just remind them that it could be worse. Now go out and vote. — Andrew Shepherd is a political science senior.

Torn between two cultures: UA grad Miss Arab USA finalist


Enforcement possible with judges’ decision

continued from page 1

By Lívia Fialho Arizona Daily Wildcat On Sept. 11, Yusra Tekbali remembers sitting in history class in a Tucson high school watching the news. For her, and many Arab Americans, it forever changed how she interacted with her Arab heritage in the U.S., her birthplace. A journalism and Near Eastern studies UA graduate, Tekbali is now running for the first-ever Miss Arab USA contest. Out of 100 contestants, she is among 20 finalists competing for the title on Nov. 6 in Phoenix. “Everyone who knows me is like, you’re not the pageant type. (But) it’s not a typical beauty pageant … they really want to focus on your character and what you’ve done to serve the community,” she said. Tekbali’s parents moved to the U.S. in the 1980s after her father, a doctor in geology, got a scholarship. Five of their seven kids were born here. While the family constantly visited Libya and Tekbali was raised keenly aware of their heritage, she was inclined to learn more about it only after the 2001 terror attacks. Sept. 11 and the rising prejudice against Arabs and Muslims in the U.S. made her connect with her roots. “It was a wake-up call. I needed to learn more about what it means to be a Muslim … and an Arab,” Tekbali said. From that point, she became involved with the Muslim Students Association, the American Arab Anti-Discrimination Committee and the overall community. The choice of her majors also related to it. Tekbali wanted to tell stories and report accurately on the Middle East. “I wanted to have a firm grasp on that region and get away from what I’ve been taught from the inside, growing up Arab-American,” she said. But dealing with two cultures, in some ways very different, was at times conflicting. She struggled to find balance between the two, she said. Having a dual identity, however, “gives me the opportunity to see the world in two different perspectives and to see events in two different perspectives.” The long-strained U.S.-Libya relationship leaves her torn. “I remem-

ber as soon as (9/11) broke they blamed it on Libya. They thought it was a terrorist from Libya,” she said. But recent improvements already make notable change. Up until last year, it was rare to see Americans in Libya. This past summer, she met many, something “surreal.” During college, Tekbali wrote for the Daily Wildcat and interned at the Arizona Daily Star and the Tucson Citizen. After graduation, she worked at the D.C. office of Rep. Gabrielle Giffords. The latter gave her an insight of how politics can affect change. In February, Tekbali will take the State Department of Foreign Service exam to pursue politics. Becoming Miss Arab USA would also impact her community, she said. “The more relations are improving, the less cast aside you feel as a person. And the more people know about Libya, the more they’ll embrace you as Libyan-American,” she said. Before applying for the pageant,

Tekbali went on a trip through Libya sponsored by the Libyan government to reconnect people to their homeland. That was very critical in her decision to run in the contest, she said. As the only Libyan contestant, “I don’t think I would have felt comfortable enough to represent Miss Arab USA before this summer,” she added. For the pageant itself, she’s glad bikinis aren’t required. “It’s really not what I’m about,” she said. Instead, contestants will wear an outfit traditional to their countries. Currently in Tucson, she’s going to Phoenix for a week of preparation before the event Saturday. She doesn’t reject the idea of one day living in Libya, and has plans to spread knowledge of the Arab culture in some way. “The more the world, not just America, see people of Arab descendent talking about their heritage, the less fear there is,” she said.

noted that federal law permits police to inquire about a person’s immigration status. On that score, “you don’t have an argument,” the judge told the lawyer for the Obama administration. Arizona Gov. Jan Brewer, a Republican who is campaigning for re-election, flew in for the hearing and sat at the front of the courtroom. Brewer signed the legislation known as SB1070 into law in April, sparking protests around the U.S. from immigrant rights activists who said it would lead to racial profiling. Brewer ’s actions boosted her flagging re-election campaign, while national polls showed that a majority of Americans supported the Arizona law. After the hearing, the governor said that 22 other states were poised to pass similarly tough laws against illegal immigrants. “The federal government needs to do its job so Arizona doesn’t have to,” Brewer said. John J. Bouma, who represented Arizona in the case, told the court that the border state was suffering from serious crimes committed by illegal immigrants who, once in the country, never get sent back. “Crossing the border is the same as crossing into the finish line,” Bouma said. Deputy Solicitor General Edwin S. Kneedler, representing the Obama administration in challenging the Arizona law, said it infringed on the power of the federal government over foreign relations and could affect U.S. citizens abroad if other countries adopted similar laws. Comments from the judges suggested they were likely to reject provisions that would make it a crime for an immigrant to fail to carry immigration papers and for illegal immigrants to seek and accept paid work. Judge Carlos T. Bea, a Republican appointee who was born in Spain, observed that Arizona was attempting to take over the federal government’s

responsibility for policing immigration. Bea likened it to a state enforcing federal income tax law. When Bouma defended a part of the law that permitted the state to punish illegal immigrants for working, Bea said he and his fellow judges were bound by a prior 9th Circuit panel ruling. “The problem is you are arguing something that is foreclosed to us,” Bea told the lawyer. Noonan also suggested that parts of the Arizona law went too far. “Isn’t that getting into federal territory?” he asked at one point. Judge Richard A. Paez, a Democratic appointee, questioned whether Arizona had the legal authority and even the expertise to determine whether a person should be removed from the country. “Hasn’t the federal government in place an elaborate scheme for determining whether someone is removable or not?” Paez asked, adding, “It is not an easy call.” University of California Hastings Law Professor David I. Levine, who attended the hearing, said afterward that he expected the court would interpret at least one of the provisions – requiring police to investigate a person’s immigration status — as constitutional but would continue to block other controversial provisions. “This is going to be a mixed verdict,” Levine said. Even though part of the law may be revived, it “may end up being toothless,” he added. Brewer, at a news conference after the hearing, said Arizona would take its case to the U.S. Supreme Court if necessary. A decision by the 9th Circuit is expected within weeks or months. Outside the court, nearly 200 protestors against SB1070 squared off with a smaller group carrying American flags and signs urging the court to uphold the law.

Petulant professor returns damaged laptop

A UA employee reported on Thursday morning that his laptop was intentionally damaged by a former UA professor at the Electrical and Computer Engineering building. A University of Arizona Police Department officer went to the building to speak to the employee, who worked within the Information Technology department. He said that he received a laptop computer from a former UA professor in the mail. When he opened it, he found that all the ports in the computer were damaged beyond repair. The officer inspected this damage and noticed some bent pins and broken wafers inside of the USB ports, Ethernet, power supply and other ports. All of this appeared to have been caused intentionally with a screwdriver. The exterior of the laptop was not damaged other than slight scratches on the bottom left of the keyboard. The value of the laptop is estimated to be $1,799. The officer contacted the former professor over the telephone and asked him about the damage done to the laptop. He said that he was asked by UA’s Electrical and Computer Engineering Department to return the laptop because he had taken a chair professor position at another university that he was now working for. The professor stated that he mailed the laptop as requested and said he had no knowledge of the damage. The officer was unable to determine that he had caused the damage to the laptop or to find a motive as to why he would damage the laptop. The UA’s Electrical and Computer Engineering Department is pursuing an insurance claim through Federal Express.

Stalker follows woman and friends, then flees

A man who had no affiliation with the UA harassed a student on Thursday at the Main Library. The man left by the time a UAPD officer arrived. That day, at 3:30 p.m., an officer was dispatched to the UA Main Library to look for a man after receiving a report about him. The man was following a woman and her friends, even though he had previously been warned by UAPD not to follow her. As soon as the man noticed she had seen him, he left the scene running. The woman reported that the man was following her and her friends as they went to the library. Police were unable to locate him. She told the officer that the man is a friend of her friend, and is obsessed with her. She also said he had approached her and her friends on multiple occasions and made derogatory comments about their skin color and ethnicity. The officer attempted to contact the man to let him know that next time he does this, he would be subject to arrest for harassment. The officer called his phone number and left a message, and the man later called back. The man quickly told the officer he had the wrong number and hung up without giving him time to respond. The officer advised the woman to call the police immediately if she sees this man again. The student did not wish to prosecute.

Thief left cable lock at library

A man reported that his bicycle was stolen from the Main Library on Thursday, between 11 a.m. and 5:30 p.m. A UAPD officer contacted the man over the telephone about his stolen property. He said his bicycle was stolen after he had locked it up using a cable lock. The bicycle is described as olive green and worth about $1,100. The cable lock was left at the scene.

Stereo stolen from Sixth Street garage

Between 10 a.m. on Wednesday and 10 p.m. on Thursday, someone broke into a UA student’s car. His vehicle had been parked on the fifth level of the Sixth Street Parking Garage. A UAPD officer responded to the parking garage on Thursday at 10:20 p.m. and met with the student. The student said that he parked his car there a day ago, and when he returned he noticed his driver’s side door lock had been tampered with. The student noticed his Pioneer car stereo and his garage pass were stolen. He did not know the serial number of his stereo. There were no other items missing. The student said he tried to turn on his car, but the transmission would not go into gear. The ignition did not appear to be tampered with, according to the officer. The only damage to the vehicle was to the lock. The officer did not attempt to lift fingerprints because of the visible smudges on the door handles and because the student had already gone through the car to look for any missing items. The student said he would make arrangements to have his vehicle towed for repairs.

Day of the Dead festivities take on darker tone as Mexico’s drug war rages on McClatchy Newspapers

MEXICO CITY — So many dead. It is often said that Mexicans famously celebrate death, that it is viewed not just as the end of life but a single stage in an infinite cycle. The Mexican, as poet Octavio Paz once put it, does not fear death but “mocks it, courts it, embraces it, sleeps with it.” But this year, as Mexicans picnic at cemeteries and erect elaborate altars to mark the nation’s annual Day of the Dead observances, death is haunting in its abundance. Mexicans face the stark reality of a drug war that has plunged the country into its deadliest violence since the revolution 100 years ago. So many dead. Tens of thousands, in just a few years. And thus the colorful ceremonies and memorials this year have taken on a darker tone, an acknowledgment of the staggering toll of the recent past, confronting it rather than ignoring it. In Mexico City’s central Zocalo plaza, the

so-called “Mega Ofrenda,” an elaborate and enormous shrine with offerings of flowers, food, drink and artworks to the dead, also features political messages: “Let’s hope Felipe (Calderon, the president) saves us from the narcos so there may be no more dead.” Though written, in its Spanish version, in playful rhyme, the message is clear: Help. Outside the federal attorney general’s office on Mexico City’s wide, tree-lined Paseo de la Reforma, a group of people use their Day of the Dead offerings to protest the bloodletting that has spread across much of the nation. Decorating a sidewalk with the orange chrysanthemums typical of the holiday, they criticize the “absurd war” that they said is increasingly claiming the lives of young people. “In Mexico, to be young is now synonymous with death,” read one of their placards. At the iconic gilded Angel de la Independencia monument are altars to many of the freshly dead. The 49 toddlers killed in a gruesome fire at a nursery in Hermosillo (not victims of the drug war but emblematic

nonetheless of Mexico’s current tragedies) are saluted along with dozens of journalists killed presumably by drug traffickers. Elsewhere, police agencies remember the multitudes of their fallen members; others honor the memory of the governor-to-be of the troubled state of Tamaulipas, assassinated in broad daylight days before the election. At a city human rights office here, an altar highlights the tragedy of 72 immigrants, mostly from Central America, slain en masse by traffickers, also in Tamaulipas. In just the last 11 days, 47 mostly young people were killed in four separate massacres in different cities including this capital — prompting some columnists and activists to speak of “juvenicidio,” or the systematic slaughter of youths. At some memorials, banners read, “LutoXmexico,” a slogan meaning “Mourning for Mexico.” It is part of an adhoc movement of civic anti-violence groups that has sprung up in recent days, staging numerous offerings and on Monday, filling the social media networks. “In Mexico it is now normal that every day

is a Day of the Dead,” said one participant. Tuesday is the official Day of the Dead holiday, originally an indigenous custom timed by Mexico’s Spanish conquerors to follow the Roman Catholic All Saints Day Nov. 1. As much as the promoters of Halloween try to supplant Dia de los Muertos, the two here end up combining into a long period of “festejo.” Children who engage in Day of the Dead solicitations of sweets and money, similar to trick-or-treating, chant the phrase, “Give me my calaverita.” The word literally means “little skull.” In a cartoon in Monday’s Reforma newspaper, a child asks Calderon for a “calaverita.” Calderon, standing in front of a large pile of human skulls reminiscent of a killing field, says, “What? More?” “Never has it been more significant than it is today to commemorate” this holiday, columnist Antonio Navalon noted in Monday’s El Universal newspaper. “Today we remember the babies and the dead youth, the harvest most tragic and most abundant of the year.”

Stoops pleased with offensive progression By Tim Kosch ARIZONA DAILY WILDCAT It was business as usual for Arizona football head coach Mike Stoops on Monday, who was more pleased with the performance of his team during the 29-21 win over UCLA than he was about the


Fischer garners weekly award

bigger picture of improving his career record to 40-40. “I thought we played with a lot of balance as a team,” Stoops said at his weekly press conference. “Offensively, that was our biggest production of the year. It was good to see that type of balance, I think our run game has really

come on the last couple weeks, and I think that will bode well for us down the stretch.” The Wildcats totaled a seasonhigh 583 yards against the Bruins. That passing game has continued to move right along despite Nick Foles being sidelined with a knee injury — Arizona leads the Pacific

10 Conference with 300.6 passing yards per game — but the improvement of the running game is noticeable. The Wildcats have slowly built up their rushing average, which now stands at 152.8 yards per game. On the other side of the ball, the nation’s 10th best defense

Ex-Wildcat hoopster talks about life as a Houston Rocket By Kevin Zimmerman ARIZONA DAILY WILDCAT

Former Arizona men’s basketball forward Chase Budinger has begun his second season playing for the NBA’s Houston Rockets. Through three games, Budinger is averaging nine points and three rebounds per game. The former Lute Olson recruit talked with the Arizona Daily Wildcat about playing in Houston, Texas, his offseason and his style of play. Daily Wildcat: I know you’re a few games through the season, but how’s it going and what are you guys looking to accomplish this year? Chase Budinger: We have a lot of high hopes this year. Our goal is definitely to make a deep run in the playoffs. We feel we’re a very good team … we feel we’re a very deep team. DW: For you personally, entering your second year, what’s the mentality like for you and how different is it from last year? CB: It’s a lot different. Coming into my rookie year, you don’t really know what to expect at all. This year, I’m going into the season knowing what to expect. In the offseason, you’re able to train on your weaknesses and you can train to prepare yourself for that upcoming season. And just coming into this year, I just feel more confident than I did last year, because I know what to expect and know how long the season’s going to be. There’s going to be ups and downs, and the biggest thing is you’ve always got to stay confident. DW: What were you doing in the offseason? Were you training, were you resting? Alan Walsh/Arizona Daily Wildcat

Chase Budinger was one of the most heralded recruits to ever come to Arizona, and his career as a Wildcat culminated in a trip to the Sweet 16. Budinger is averaging nine points per game with the Houston Rockets so far this season.



This is the point in the season where things start to get interesting. Key matchups, bowl game scenarios — and even national title implications — are woven through the Pacific 10 Conference. There were blowouts, and games that were surprisingly close that opened up some questions around the conference. Will Oregon be able to survive the season and keep its spot at the top of the nation? Who will fall into second place? The situation will get stickier as the weeks go by, but for now, here’s our opinion of where the teams stand.


NO. 1 OREGON (8-0, 5-0 Pac-10) Unanimous No. 1: That’s what Chip Kelly and the Oregon Ducks have become this season. The Ducks have become an offensive dynamo, averaging nearly 55 points per game (a touchdown more per game than fellow scoreboard breakers Boise State). There are still two games on Oregon’s schedule that have the potential to dethrone it (against Arizona and at Oregon State) but for now, the Ducks are flying high.


NO. 13 STANFORD (7-1, 4-1) Stanford has done nearly everything to assert its dominance at the top of the conference, but Oregon is holding its ground. A 41-0 thumping of Washington in Seattle kept the Cardinal on the right path to stay in the conference and national spotlight. Andrew Luck and Stanford have answered the preseason questions about winning without Toby Gerhart, and it’s clear that Jim Harbaugh has the Cardinal focused on winning. This weekend’s game with Arizona quickly garnered national attention, and for good reason — second place in the Pac-10 is on the line.


FOOTBALL, page 9

Q& A with Chase Budinger

Arizona linebacker Jake Fischer was named Pacific 10 Conference Special Teams Player of the Week, the conference announced Monday. “I didn’t know I got it until today,” Fischer said. “It’s Jake Fischer an honor, Linebacker and the fake punt was all the coaching, and everyone else opened up the hole for me.” Fischer rushed the ball on a fake punt that Arizona called on a 4th-and-3 in the fourth quarter of the Wildcats’ 29-21 victory on Saturday. Fischer’s efforts gave Arizona a 29-yard gain and kept the ball out of the hands of the UCLA offense. “I think it just gave our offense another chance of putting the game out of reach, and even though we didn’t score, we took a substantial amount of time off the clock,” Fischer said. “It was a really big momentum shift.” The Wildcats were situated to punt at their own 27-yard line with 6:23 left in the game with the lead at 26-21. Fischer also recorded two tackles during special teams play that kept the Bruins behind their own 30-yard line. “It was a tribute to our guys. They executed it really well,” Fischer said. “All I had to do was run the ball.” — Nicole Dimtsios

was dominant on Saturday, with the exception of two big plays that alone yielded 117 yards and 12 points. “Defensively I thought we played pretty well, not one of our best,” Stoops said. “Our safety

NO. 15 ARIZONA (7-1, 4-1) Arizona survived while starting quarterback Nick Foles nursed a dislocated kneecap and kept itself in contention for the conference title. But the Wildcats face four tough opponents in a row, including playing at Stanford this weekend and at Oregon later in the month. The Wildcats are one of three teams that control their own destiny in the race for the Rose Bowl.

Win out, and they’ll go. If Arizona wants to show that it isn’t just the same old Wildcats — coming close, but never reaching the team’s full potential — they can start by making a statement in Palo Alto this weekend.


OREGON STATE (4-3, 3-1) Another one of the Pac-10’s blowout wins belonged to Oregon State, who added insult to injury after California’s quarterback, Kevin Riley, was knocked out of the game in the first quarter with a knee injury. Running back Jacquizz Rodgers scored four touchdowns himself, three rushing and one throwing, accounting for 28 of the Beavers’ 35 points. Oregon State is the third team, along with Arizona and Oregon, to hold its own destiny in terms of reaching the Rose Bowl, and the Civil War will surely have conference implications this year again.


SOUTHERN CALIFORNIA (5-3, 2-3) It looked for a moment that the Trojans may have figured out how to stop that explosive Oregon offense — USC held a lead over the Ducks in the third quarter, marking only the second time this season that Oregon has trailed — to no avail. But don’t let being on the cusp of the conference’s lower half fool you. The Trojans still have some big chances to play spoiler this season at Arizona and at OSU.


ASU (4-4, 2-3) The return of quarterback Steven Threet brought the Sun Devils back to .500 on the season and kept ASU’s bowl chances alive. Like its rival, though, the Sun Devils have a tough stretch of games to survive if they want to make it to a bowl game this year. The schedule of at USC, against Stanford and at

BUDINGER, page 10

Arizona could prevent the Sun Devils from having a post season, but who knows with the way the conference is going this year.


CALIFORNIA (4-4, 2-3) Cal couldn’t escape Oregon State over the weekend, and now its quarterback’s health is in question. All hope isn’t lost, though. Cal plays Washington State next weekend and then hosts Oregon, Stanford and Washington to close out the season. Sounds daunting, but the Golden Bears are notoriously tough to defeat in Berkeley, Calif., and have shown flashes of brilliance this season.


WASHINGTON (3-5, 2-3) It keeps getting worse for the Huskies and Jake Locker. He’s already been ruled out against the Ducks with a fractured rib, making any chance of Washington pulling an upset slim to none. The Huskies will try to avoid a third straight loss and get back on track against Oregon and UCLA. And they’ll have to do it in front of an audience — both games are on national TV.


UCLA (3-5, 1-4) The Bruins showed they had some fight left in their tanks against Arizona. UCLA hung in the game and gave the Wildcats a challenge sans Nick Foles. While Bruins fans may have to wait another year to restore the football focus of the conference to southern California, UCLA’s defense showed it’s a force to be reckoned with.


WASHINGTON STATE (1-8, 0-6) Poor Cougars. Just when things were starting to look up, there’s nothing like a 42-0 loss to put things back in perspective.

W-Hoops to take on GCU

Wildcats open exhibition season in McKale By Dan Kohler Arizona Daily Wildcat With a month of practice under its belt, the Arizona women’s basketball team finally takes to the McKale Center floor in an exhibition contest against the Grand Canyon University Antelopes tonight. Now firmly planted in Arizona basketball, head coach Niya Butts plans to start her third year with the program with the right attitude. “(I like) our overall focus, our overall intensity, our energy, what everybody’s willing to bring to the table,” Butts said. “We want to win. That’s our overall theme. “The other day, the girls told me at practice that they want to be a hard-nosed, scrappy team. That’s what they want (the fans) to see when they watch us play, so I’m looking forward to it myself.”

With a bevy of returning players already in place, the Wildcat coaching staff is looking forward to see what the first contest will mean for the fresh faces. Junior guard Shanita Arnold, who redshirted the 2009-10 season after transferring from the University of Arkansas, is excited to take on a physical role on the floor for the Wildcats. “Practices have been great,” Arnold said. “My teammates have been going for speed getting ready, even though it’s an exhibition game. We don’t want to take it lightly.” Although the Wildcats are looking to take it day by day, they are hoping that the tonight’s game will give them a clear vision of what they need to work on for the rest of the season. “(We’re) just getting a feel to see exactly W-HOOPS, page 10

Arizona linebacker Jake Fischer drags down UCLA quarterback Richard Brehaut in Arizona’s 29-21 win, over the Bruins at the Rose Bowl on Saturday. Head coach Mike Stoops said Fischer and the rest of the Wildcats’ defense will need to be at their best when they take on Stanford this weekend.

play, letting them get two easy touchdowns, is concerning and disappointing, and we’ll have to correct that this week and be better in the back end.” The win put the Wildcats at 7-1 — their best start since 1998 — and in good position to contend for the Pac-10 championship down the stretch. According to Stoops, however, that won’t happen if the offense doesn’t improve its red zone efforts. “Overall, really pleased with the win (but I’m) disappointed we didn’t score more points,” Stoops said. “Red zone efficiency wasn’t great. Going on the road and getting three points in a lot of those situations against a really good team will hurt you. We just have to convert more. The points didn’t equate to the way we moved the football.”

An early look at Stanford

Stoops said that the late-season implications combined with ABC announcing Saturday’s matchup with the Cardinal would be broadcast as its game of the week should be enough to get his players excited about the game, but he stressed that Arizona needed a perfect week of practice in order to improve to 8-1. “We have to be more efficient scoring because these guys are going to score some points,” Stoops said. “This is a very good football team, very well-coached. Obviously they play hard and do a lot of things very similar to the way we operate. Kids play hard. They’re a disciplined fundamental football team.” What stands out about the Cardinal is its offense. Led by quarterback Andrew Luck and a steady power running game, Stanford averages 42.4 points per game. Part of it is the talent on that side of the ball. Another part is the offense schemes that head coach Jim Harbaugh has installed. “They move their personnel around. They want to talk about being physical, but it’s a game of manipulation when you play Stanford,” Stoops said. “They create so

many formations. It’s a very pro-oriented situation when you watch Jim’s teams play, but it’s more about manipulations than it is anything else.” Last year the Wildcats and Cardinal took part in a classic shootout when UA beat Stanford 43-38 in a game that featured 1,137 combined yards of offense. Arizona, according to Stoops, made an effort to try and take away Stanford’s running game — which at the time was led by All-American Toby Gerhart — but in doing so was burned for 434 yards through the air. Because Stanford is so proficient in all facets on offense, Stoops said that his defense needs to play a well-rounded game rather than picking its poison like it did last year. “The thing that’s difficult about Stanford is that we can take away the run if we want to take it away, but last year they threw for 400 yards on us,” Stoops said. As for the similarities between Stoops and Harbaugh — both came in as young head coaches and lifted their programs from the depths of the Pac-10 to the top — Stoops reverted to a headline grabbing quote that the Stanford coach had a few weeks ago. “Jim is Jim,” Stoops said with a laugh. “I know he’s got a great wife and a great quarterback.”




Injury update

Stoops was pleased to announce that his team’s injury list is shrinking. “We’re healthy,” he said. “I anticipate everybody being available for Saturday. I’d imagine Nick (Foles) will be a firm option for us. Justin Washington will play. The guys that didn’t play last week that start or play a considerable amount for us, we anticipate back for this game.” Stoops wouldn’t name a starter, but he did say that the position remains Foles’ when he is ready. “If Nick (Foles) is healthy enough to play and practice and do the things necessary, then he will start,” Stoops said.

where we’re at and what we need to work on,” Arnold said. “It’s just giving us a bar to set ourselves and see what we need to come in later on in the week and work on for our (next) game on Sunday.” The Antelopes, who finished with a 19-8 record last season, are looking to come into Tucson to get their season on the right start as

most excited about the new facets of leadership opening up for their team. “Last year we were searching for leaders,” Butts said. “The coaches were more of the leader. I think now Shanita Arnold has really stepped up, Ify Ibekewe’s stepped up, Davellyn (Whyte’s) stepped up. So many of our kids have taken on that responsibility that we feel a lot better about it as a staff.”

Rocket more comfortable in year two

CB: I was training a lot. I was mostly here in Houston, and I was also back home in San Diego training as well. My biggest thing was trying to add some strength. I felt I kind of got bullied a couple times last year. That was my main emphasis coming into this year, was not to get bullied, especially in the post. I feel I’ve done a pretty good job of that in practice and in the games so far. That’s helped already.

always been good at playing off the ball and finding gaps to get in. Coming off of screens, I feel like I’ve always been good at that. Once I got into the NBA, it got kind of easier because you’ve got guys like (Rockets guards) Aaron Brooks, and Kyle Lowry and Kevin Martin who are able to draw a lot of attention.

DW: Were you training with (Budinger’s trainer) Trent Suzuki?

CB: No, there wasn’t any one person that I tried to modify my game after. It kind of just happened like that.

CB: Yeah, when I was in San Diego, I was training with him. DW: What type of stuff were you doing with him? CB: With him, I just continued the Rockets training structure that I had. I wasn’t home for very long. It was only about three weeks. So I had a program with the Rockets I was doing, so I just did the same program with Trent (Suzuki), and he modified some things, but pretty much stuck with that program. DW: As far as your role in the team this year, obviously you’re a guy who’s made his living moving off the ball really well, catching and shooting. Can you talk about how you developed that part of your game? CB: How that developed — good question. I just feel like I’ve always been good at that. I’ve

DW: So there wasn’t any one player that you looked at?

DW: Yao Ming is back from a foot injury. How does that change things for you and your other teammates who are playing with him? CB: It really hasn’t changed too much. I wasn’t able to play with him last year, so all I heard last year was, “Oh, it’s so great to play with Yao, blah blah blah blah blah blah blah.” So this year … it’s great playing with him, because he draws so much attention. He draws double teams which lead to wide open jumpers. And he’s such a good passer as well, so when you pass to him, if you’re able to cut and find an opening, he’s going to find you. It’s just been a pleasure playing with him, and he’s just such a great player (laughs). DW: How’s it been settling in Houston?

CB: I love Houston. Houston’s been a great city. It’s warm, I like that part. Right now, I’m living in an apartment, same one as last year. It kind of just grew on me. I have it all furnished and everything. I just like it down here. It’s very southern, the people are really nice and it’s a great city. One of the best things is they support their sports down here and they love the Rockets. DW: Speaking of Houston, have you talked to (Houston native and former Wildcat) Nic Wise lately? CB: I talk to him here and there. Time zones are completely different over there so sometimes we’ll kind of cross-match on Facebook, and I’ll be able to talk to him and stuff. I’ve just been hearing good things about him. He’s doing really well over there. I think he’s averaging 18 points over there. He’s been playing really well, and I’m happy for him. DW: I have to ask you, with all this talk on Miami, what are your thoughts on the big three and that whole situation? CB: Well, they’re going to be a good team. Having three guys like that on one team, yes, it does spark a lot of interest with the media and everything like that. They’re going to be a very good team and a tough team to beat. As far as my standpoint and the team’s standpoint, they’re still another team and we need to focus on ourselves.

Giants finish improbable run with World Series title McClatchy-Tribune

ARLINGTON, Texas â&#x20AC;&#x201D; On the plus side, Rangersâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; fans will not have to be quite as invested in Cliff Leeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s upcoming free-agent winter. And those who follow the Giants could care less where he winds up. Fans in the Bay Area will be at least a little numb for months after their franchiseâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s first World Series championship in 56 years, the first since the move to California. The title that Barry Bonds couldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t deliver, Edgar Renteria could. Isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t baseball the greatest game? Renteria, a 34-year-old shortstop who had three home runs and 22 RBI during a regular season in which he battled a series of injuries, drove a 2-0 cut fastball from Lee into the left-center-field bleachers at Rangers Ballpark in Arlington on Monday night. His second go-ahead homer in four games, it broke up a 0-0 battle between Lee and Tim Lincecum, who were both at the top of their games. The Giants rolled to a 3-1 victory, giving them the World Series four games to one. It is only the sixth championship in the history of the ancient franchise, which had been on the losing side in the Series 13 times, most recently when the Angels came back from a 3-2 deficit to win in 2002. Thirteen years after he got the winning hit for the Marlins in Game 7 against the Indians, the unsung Renteria was named Most Valuable Player in the Series. He became the fourth player to ever drive in the winning run in two different World Series, joining Lou Gehrig, Joe DiMaggio and Yogi Berra. â&#x20AC;&#x153;This isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t his first rodeo,â&#x20AC;? Rangers manager Ron Washington said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a bigtime player.â&#x20AC;? Renteria has been talking about retirement, given how unlikely

Jose Carlos Fajardo/Contra Costa Times

it is that the Giants will pick up his $10.5 million contract option for 2011, but now there may be a revolt if general manager Brian Sabean lets San Franciscoâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s latest civic treasure walk. â&#x20AC;&#x153;This group deserved it,â&#x20AC;? Sabean said of a team manager Bruce Bochy characterized as castoffs and misfits. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It was fateful from the beginning, in spring training. It was a community effort.â&#x20AC;? Few had picked the National League West champion Giants when the playoffs began a month ago, but October baseball is largely about pitching and defense, and no team could touch

San Francisco in that category. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Unbelievable how good they have been,â&#x20AC;? Bochy said. Texas entered the Series having averaged 5.4 runs in eliminating the Rays and Yankees but got only 12 runs off the Giants. The Rangers came to the World Series with a confident group of hitters who had batted a playoffs-best .284 with runners in scoring position, but against the Giants they hit only .179 in those situations. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a great team win again tonight,â&#x20AC;? Giants owner Bill Neukom said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s the way itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s been â&#x20AC;&#x201D; players who love to play the game and play it together.â&#x20AC;?

SEATTLE â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Jake Locker will not play Saturday when the Huskies take on No. 1-ranked Oregon after his rib injury escalated into a break during Saturdayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s game against Stanford. Redshirt freshman Keith Price will start and Nick Montana will be the backup, though Cody Bruns and Jesse Callier, who each have high school experience playing quarterback, will be emergency QBs with the hope to preserve Montanaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s redshirt year. Washington coach Steve Sarkisian said Locker had a hairline fracture heading into the Stanford game but had been cleared to play. Locker had been said to have â&#x20AC;&#x153;soreâ&#x20AC;? or â&#x20AC;&#x153;bruisedâ&#x20AC;? ribs the past two weeks. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The (medical) staff agreed that it was OK for him to play and we made that decision, a decision that is really made routinely week to week to week not just for a quarterback but for every player on our team,â&#x20AC;? Sarkisian said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;In this case the staff has made the recommendation to hold him out and get him healthy. The goal is to have him healthy for our final three ballgames.â&#x20AC;? Sarkisian denied that Locker had a broken rib last week and reiterated under questioning that Locker had been cleared to play in consultation with Locker and his parents. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It went from a cartilage injury to a hairline fracture to now a crack in the rib,â&#x20AC;? Sarkisian said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;This has escalated into an injury more than just pain, so we are dealing with it as such.â&#x20AC;? The injury got worse when Locker took a couple big hits in the 41-0 loss to Stanford. Locker

said he hopes he can return when the Huskies play UCLA on Nov. 18. Locker said he did not know exactly when the injury occurred against Stanford. Locker played into the fourth quarter, coming out only for the final series with the outcome long decided. â&#x20AC;&#x153;He took a couple good shots that kind of escalated this thing to a whole â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;nother level for us,â&#x20AC;? Sarkisian said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s unfortunate. I know Jake wants to be out there in the worst way but this is the right thing to do.â&#x20AC;? Sarkisian said the rib injury happened initially against Oregon State and the first X-ray after that game did not show a break. Locker met the media briefly. â&#x20AC;&#x153;If I can be out there, I will,â&#x20AC;? Locker said of the UCLA game. Locker will not practice this week. The Huskies have a bye following the Oregon game before the UCLA game on a Thursday night. As for Price, Sarkisian said that getting his first start at Autzen Stadium is â&#x20AC;&#x153;going to be a challenging oneâ&#x20AC;? but that â&#x20AC;&#x153;heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s made great strides and has a real confidence about him right now.â&#x20AC;? Price has played in five games this season, completing 5 of 9 passes for 37 yards and a touchdown, that coming in the win at USC. Price, a dual-threat type, has rushed three times for 11 yards. Sarkisian said that Montana would play only in the event of a â&#x20AC;&#x153;long-term issue,â&#x20AC;? surely meaning an injury to Price, but the hope is that Montana will not have to play. Sarkisian said the decision to sit Locker was not made due to the opponent or having a bye, but simply due to his health.

Q What is dangerous about mixing caffeine with alcohol?

A. (alcohol) can mask the effects of the alcohol, causing a person to feel less intoxicated than they actually are. This can lead Consuming a stimulant (caffeine) with a depressant

to dangerous behaviors and negative health outcomes like sexual risk-taking, sexual assault, driving under the influence, fights, and injuries. Some people falsely assume that combining caffeine and alcohol will “cancel out” each substance’s effects. Perhaps you have seen the recent media reports about the 12% alcohol content malt beverage, Four Loko, sometimes called “blackout in a can.” Last month, nine female Central Washington University students were hospitalized with extremely high blood alcohol levels (one nearly fatal) after drinking Four Loko at a party. What’s different about these cheap, sweet, caffeinated, colorful large cans of brew? One 23.5 oz. can of Four Loko has almost six times the amount of alcohol in a 12 oz. can of Keystone Light. Drinks like Four Loko can be especially dangerous for ladies. A woman who weighs 120 pounds could have a blood alcohol concentration (BAC) of 0.217 (almost 3 times the legal limit of 0.08) after drinking only one can of Four Loko. Many drinkers would blackout at that level. Just two cans could cause unconsciousness, coma, or death in some drinkers. Caffeine does nothing to curb alcohol’s depressant effects on the central nervous system or lower a person’s BAC. Most high energy alcoholic concoctions contain large amounts of caffeine and guarana (another stimulant) which can lead to jitteriness, headache, fast heartbeat, and serious health issues. A study done with Florida college students found that students who consumed energy drinks with alcohol were three times more likely to leave a bar highly intoxicated than those who drank non-caffeinated alcoholic beverages. To have a safer and more memorable time when partying, choose lower alcohol beverages without caffeine, set a drink limit, and stick to it. Reference from the Journal of Addictive Behaviors, Volume 35, Issue 4, April 2010, Pages 325-330.

Guarana, which contains caffeine, is made from the beans of a South American tree.
