‘Access, quality, discovery’

Campus ready for ‘GameDay’ By Marissa Freireich ARIZONA DAILY WILDCAT With thousands of fans expected to attend ESPN’s “College GameDay” events this weekend, campus officials say the UA is ready for its moment in the spotlight. Various university entities, including the Dean of Students Office, University of Arizona Police Department and Facilities Management have been keeping in touch through meetings, e-mails and phone calls, said Matt Brown, director of athletic event operations. “We have to make sure all our bases are covered,” he said. Last Sunday, the university first received confirmation that “GameDay” would be coming to Tucson. Brown said ESPN is very organized because they produce this event at various locations. “However, this is our first experience with it,” he said. ESPN brought five full-sized semis, one of which serves as a generator, a satellite uplink truck, about 20-30 support cars, and about 50 support staff, Brown said. GAMEDAY, page A7

An audience of 580 were present to listen to UA President Robert Shelton give the 2009 State of the University address. Shelton focused on continuing to strive for academic excellence both in teaching and research despite nearly $100 million in state budget cuts. Shelton urges the university to remain academically competitive on a worldwide scale.

Shelton promises adhering to the UA’s mission despite mounting budget cuts By Will Ferguson ARIZONA DAILY WILDCAT In front of a crowd of 590 confirmed guests at the Grand Ballroom in the Student Union Memorial Center, UA President Robert Shelton spelled out the continuing mission of the university in simple terms at the 2009 State of the University address. “For those of you who are unclear on our purpose or confused about our mission, you need only write down these three words: access, quality and discovery,” he said Shelton spent the majority of his speech addressing these three key aspects of the university’s mission and how the campus community will move toward this goal despite nearly $100 million in state budget cuts over the last two years. Shelton received a standing ovation upon the conclusion of his address, a speech several audience

members felt captured both the positive and the negative. “He very much captured all of the challenges but more importantly the opportunities facing the university,” said Associated Students of the University of Arizona President Chris Nagata. “He presented the actual figures, despite all the negative things he mentioned, it was very positive,” said accounting junior Abel Serratos. Shelton presented the financial hurdles facing the university. Hurdles that will not be easy to overcome, he said. The university was forced to cut nearly a quarter of its state budget and faces further financial challenges in the years to come, Shelton said. He emphasized that while the university will not falter in its mission, budget cuts made in the state legislature and the faltering national economy have required the university to make hard decisions and even

harder cuts throughout the university. “We proceeded to lay out criteria that we hoped would allow us to maintain a quality student experience,” Shelton said. The criteria included protecting programs that had the capacity to attract investments from external sources and a focus on units that were central to meeting the state and the nation’s needs. “We knew, and I think most people would agree, that if we cut everything equally we were dooming the University of Arizona to a future of mediocrity,” he said. Shelton said the decision to focus on preserving the research capacity of certain units attracted negative attention from both the public and the media on a regular basis. “For those of you who have never experienced the unique pleasure of daily doses of venomous, often hyperbolic public criticism, let me

assure you that it ranks right there with getting a root canal,” he said. However, perhaps more importantly, Shelton said the public criticism brought attention to the challenges the university faces and spurred heated debate that he hopes will inspire creative solutions to a dynamic problem. “Ultimately that’s what a university should be about,” he said. Despite cuts across the board, deeper in certain areas of the academic community than others, Shelton encouraged those in attendance to look towards the future with hope. “I would argue that as the state effectively forces us into a higher tuition, higher aid model, we should not despair,” he said. Despite substantial tuition increases, Shelton said student debt is on the decline due to the university’s priority of protecting financial aid. As a result, he added, the freshman class of 2013 SHELTON, page A7

Baby first in AZ to receive three-organ transplant By Michelle Cohen ARIZONA DAILY WILDCAT A one-year-old Phoenix girl is recovering at University Medical Center after receiving the first three-organ transplant performed in Arizona. Adrianna Martinez was born Nov. 1, 2008, without a small intestine. During the surgery, which took place on Nov. 9, she was given a small intestine as well as a liver and a pancreas — organs which were

needed due to complications surrounding her medical condition. The organs came from an out-of-state, deceased infant donor, said Dr. Rainer Gruessner, professor, head of the Department of Surgery and chief of transplantation at University Medical Center, who was one of several doctors performing the operation. Adrianna was fed through an IV in her chest for her first year of life because she was not able to digest food. However, this was causing liver failure, increasing the

need for a transplant, said Tasha Bowman, Adrianna’s mother. While Adrianna is still being fed through an IV, Bowman said she is looking forward to when her daughter,“a strong baby with a lot of attitude,”can digest her food. Adrianna’s parents were told there was a problem in the last trimester of the pregnancy, but doctors did not know exactly what it was until after she was born. BABY, page A7

Chicken makes brief appearance at city council meeting DURANGO, Colo. — A person in a chicken costume ruffled the feathers of Durango’s City Council as its members discussed rules for backyard fowl. At a council meeting Tuesday, someone in a chicken costume quietly entered the council chambers just as

Yeah, he’s a pretty crazy dude. Do you think they should get him out of the NBA? No, he keeps it interesting. I mean, I don’t know. Without him we wouldn’t anything to talk about right now. Yeah. Maybe should they bring in some of Ron Artest’s relatives in after he’s gone so we’ll always have something crazy happening? (Laughs) Let’s bring in something, I’m sure he’s got some friends. I heard he raps too, so. Have you heard any of his rapping? I haven’t heard it but I’m sure he’s pretty bad. I would imagine so. Do you have any advice to give Mr. Artest on how to not go so crazy? Um, woosa. Anger management. — Brian Kimball

Council members told The Durango Herald they were perplexed by the costumed chicken but found the visit humorous. The council voted 3-2 earlier this month to make it easier to keep backyard chickens. — The Associated Press


So five years after, what do you think has changed in the NBA as a result? Stricter penalties and stuff like that and Ron Artest isn’t as crazy. He’s still mentally a little, I don’t know, but I guess just tougher rules I’d have to say. Did you hear that Ron Artest said he was once in a pick-up game where a guy got stabbed with the leg of a table? (Laughs) Nah, I haven’t heard of that but I believe it.

the mayor was discussing a recentlypassed backyard hen ordinance. The costumed chicken took a few turns, flapped its arms, then took a seat in the nearly empty gallery. Several minutes later, the big bird left — without identifying itself — after laying an egg on the floor.

PHOENIX — NBC newsman Brian Williams said Wednesday he’s not sure if Walter Cronkite would have succeeded in the age of cable news, blogs and Twitter. “I am convinced that had he come along today, I don’t think he would have cracked through. Brian Williams I think there’s too much noise, too much to cut through for a modest man from Missouri,” Williams told an audience in Phoenix. “But God and history combined to give him to us right when we needed him.” Williams spoke at a luncheon, where he was given the Cronkite Award from Arizona State University’s Walter Cronkite School of Journalism. The ceremony included videotaped congratulatory messages from Jon Stewart and fellow New Jersey native, Bruce Springsteen. Williams recounted how growing up, his parents didn’t serve dinner until after Cronkite ended his newscast with his signature line: “And that’s the way it is.” “Professionally, the day he died, I lost my North Star,” Williams said. This year marks the first award ceremony since Cronkite’s passing. The longtime CBS news anchor died in July after a long illness. Williams did not address talk of cable TV operator Comcast Corp. preparing to buy a controlling stake in NBC Universal. He instead struck an optimistic tone, saying NBC News had more viewers than it did a year ago. In 2004, Williams succeeded Tom Brokaw as anchor of “NBC Nightly News.” In 2007, he became the first network anchor — active or retired — to host “Saturday Night Live.” Each year, the Cronkite School recognizes a notable media figure for excellence in journalism.

Arizona 66, Rice 49

Wildcats scrape together second win By Lance Madden Arizona Daily Wildcat There were moments of brilliance on offense and defense for the UA men’s basketball team on Thursday night, but miscues on both sides of the floor made for a sloppy win. The Wildcats (2-0) beat Rice (31) 66-49 in McKale Center in their last home game before heading to Hawaii this morning, though the score is deceiving. “We’re not a very good team right now,” said UA head coach Sean Miller. “We are, I think, a team that can get a lot better.” Arizona shot a decent 41.9 percent (13-for-31) from the floor in the first half while holding Rice to an ice-cold 19.4 percent (6-for-31). Ironically, however, the Wildcats tallied more turnovers, (12) in the first half than Rice (10) in the first half. Arizona’s sloppy play slipped over into the second half as Rice improved. The Wildcats sunk 27of-60 shots (45 percent) overall, and the Owls made just 18-of-63 (28.6 percent). “We had great effort on defense at times, and that’s a starting point,” Miller said. “But it’s a new season, it’s a young season, and we have a lot of different guys working through things.” Despite many botched passes and missed layups, there were plenty of offensive blasts for the Wildcats. Four minutes into the second half, Derrick Williams posterized a Rice defender with a nasty one-handed slam that gave Arizona a 39-27 lead and brought many of the 13,531 fans in McKale Center to their feet. Williams took advantage of his start over fellow freshman center Kyryl Natyazhko by scoring 10 points on 5-for-10 shooting, pulling down six rebounds and swatting two of the team’s three blocks. Williams, who has been exclusively a center, said he is still getting used to the team’s offense at the power forward position, which he just started playing a few days ago in practice, he said. “Learning two separate positions … is a lot harder than just going out there and playing, like high school,” Williams said. An 18-point first-half lead quickly melted into a 6-point lead with 12:11 to go in the game, thanks to a bucket by Rice guard Tamir Jackson, making the score 46-40. “It’s not our offense that lets teams back in, it’s our defense,” said point guard Nic Wise, who led all scorers with 15 points on 6-for-10 shooting, including 3-for-4 from beyond the arc. “We’ve just got to learn to keep locking up for 40 minutes and never



Miller’s chants seem to work By Lance Madden Arizona Daily Wildcat • There’s got to be something to Sean Miller’s new chants. UA head coach Sean Miller met with several hundred members of the Zona Zoo on Tuesday night and asked the students to help his team on defense: During the first four minutes of the game, say“boing”when the opponent bounces the ball, “pass” when they pass and “brick” when the other team shoots. “I really would like to thank our students,” Miller said after the game. “The Zona Zoo, watching them show up in full force like they did, knowing that our football team has just an incredibly big weekend and it being just two days from that — I would just like to, on behalf of our team, thank them … It’s one of the many things that makes playing here special.” The Zona Zoo chanted the new cheers during the UA men’s basketball game on Thursday night, and Rice didn’t score for the first 5:20 of the game until their forward Lucas Kulpers was fouled and made two shots at the charity stripe. “I liked Coach’s ideas,”said UA guard Kyle Fogg, “and I liked the fact that Zona Zoo really did them, and I think they did a great job with that. I think it rattled (Rice) for a little bit.” • A large white square with the Block A logo“cap”was installed directly under the four-screen video board in McKale Center this week. It is a direct reflection of the Block A on the court under it. • Freshman Kevin Parrom, who is out with a stress fracture in his left foot, is wearing a boot. He is able to walk slowly without using crutches.“It’s doing all right,” he said before the game.“Just taking it easy.” Miller said Tuesday he hopes to have Parrom back before Christmas.

let our guard down.” Arizona was able to slowly increase its lead again as time slipped away. Toward the end of the game, Arizona went on a 9-1 run to go up 64-45, with the first 7 points of the run coming from Jamelle Horne, who was one of four Wildcats to score in double digits with 13 points. He also grabbed seven rebounds.

Arizona started the game on a 9-0 run and didn’t allow Rice to score for the first 5:20. The Wildcats went ahead 24-6 with 5:54 to go in the first half when Wise and sophomore Kyle Fogg both hit pull-up jumpers from beyond the arc. Holding their leads, however, is still a work in progress. Miller has been trying to instill in

his team that not letting up in practice will translate into Arizona’s games, Wise said. “A lot of times we kind of die down toward the end (of practices),” Wise said. “We’re tired or ready to go — stuff like that. He’s been drumming us on finishing in practice, and we’ll do the same in games.”

• Rice head coach Ben Braun coached his first game in a Pacific 10 Conference arena since coaching at California from 1996-2008. Former UA head coach Lute Olson spoke to the Rice team after the game. “He just came in there and let them know that they played hard and even when they were down they didn’t give up like so many teams might have,” Braun said.“It was nice to see Lute again. He’s a good coaching friend of mine.” • Both teams were perfect from the line in the first half. Arizona was 2-for2; Rice was 8-for-8. • The “Ooh Ahh” man made his first appearance of the season.

Panel argues ‘Substance and Sustainability’ Arizona PIRG and the Environmental Law Society discussed sustainable issues and solutions at their “Substance and Sustainability” panel at the James E. Rogers College of Law last night. The panel consisted of four members including professors, a research associate with Arizona Research Institute for Solar Energy and the director of Arizona Public Interest Research Group, also known as Arizona PIRG. The mediator began by providing a definition of sustainability as “the capacity to maintain and continue support of a structure” for the panel members to add to. “We are doing research to see how we can make use of our renewable natural resources … so that those things will continue to be around for awhile,” said Shirley Papuga, assistant professor in the School of Natural Resources.

Lon Huber, program associate for the materials science and engineering department and a research associate with Arizona Research Institute for Solar Energy added that, economically, sustainability means fostering innovation while also implementing policies that provide stability for the marketplace. Being green seems to be a growing trend, especially among college-aged students, the mediator said. The question is whether students following a trend are a suitable support system for the green movement. “I’d like to think that being green has become more mainstream,” said Diane Brown, executive director of Arizona PIRG. “It seems like everywhere you look people are talking about it. If you look throughout history … civil rights, women’s rights … students were at the forefront of leading those.” Americans, however, may give themselves too much credit in thinking that because they have switched off a light

bulb, they’ve made a big contribution to the environment, Huber said. “You see ads on TV and you think … companies are really stepping up to the plate on this and we don’t really need to do too much because the private sector has got it covered,”Huber said. It is important to understand what can actually be considered “green” as far as businesses and corporations and the steps that they can take to be environmentally friendly, Papuga said. “It’s really complicated to come up with a certain set of criteria that’s sustainable, that’s green,”Huber said.“It’s not black and white, that’s for sure.” The public must be aware of statistics and numbers and put them into context. Marketing strategies, as the panel addressed, might portray something to be environmentally friendly when it is not. This is known as “greenwashing.” SUSTAINABLE, page A7

When in doubt, don’t blame Israel Daniel Greenberg columnist


et’s be honest: Israel really isn’t that important. We have economic issues — the unemployment rate is, frankly, European. We have international trade issues — as the figurehead of the free market, we’re a joke. We even have bigger stability issues — just look at South Asia. Honestly, if there are going to be lots of people dead and a chance of nuclear war, it’s going to be in the bloody maelstrom of the Kashmir region between Pakistan, India and China. Oh, and Pakistan is an increasingly unstable nuclear state, and just so happens to border Afghanistan. Even in the Middle East, there’s the issue of Iran, which is quickly becoming a regional power. In order to shift dominance away from the United States and towards itself (and its supporters, Russia and China), Iran uses oil money to buy nuclear technology that everyone, even the International Atomic Energy Agency, judging by its report on Monday, knows is part of a weapons program, not an energy program for a country that can’t even refine its own petroleum. So you’ve got to wonder: what’s the deal with Israel? When something bad happens in the Middle East, people blame Israel. When the United States has international relations issues, people blame it on America’s support of Israel. When the U.S. forms some unwise foreign policy, people blame the pro-Israel lobby (AIPAC), as if there isn’t an anti-Israel lobby (J Street) or political pressure from other countries (take a look at Egypt or Saudi Arabia). The only simple conclusion that can be made is that those who play the morality card against U.S. support of Israel, just because Jews have no oil, are hypocrites. If you’re just worried about the treatment of Palestinians, take a gander at how countries like Jordan and Syria treat them. The trouble is, blaming Israel first and last for every other problem is simplistic as hell. It’s irrational, often to a degree worthy of hypocrisy. Look, I’ll be the first to say that the plight of the Palestinians is a sad one. Even now, the Palestinian Authority is considering an appeal to the U.N. to make Palestine a sovereign state, and this summarizes the Palestinian leadership’s historical political position well: make verbal demands but no concrete efforts, and when things don’t work out just blame the Zionists. In the early 20th century, Zionists worked to make viable political institutions and strategies in order to create a place where Jews would not have to face minority conditions, from cold discrimination to official policies hell-bent on genocide. The state the Zionists made was far from perfect, but this is reality, not some Teletubbies episode. Palestine’s Arab

leadership, on the other hand, wound up making a myriad of poor decisions such as allying with the Axis during World War II. Ah, yes, if only the Nazis had won the war, we wouldn’t have had to deal with the Je — I mean,“Zionist”— problem. Later Palestinian leaders promoted plane hijackings, suicide bombings and rocket attacks aimed at killing civilians and terrorizing a nation for another 15 minutes of fame. Some people are truly racist and think Arabs are backwards, but Palestinians are just shrewd: the backwards ones are the people who buy their propaganda hook, line and sinker. Whether the extreme Palestinian positions on issues, such as territorial control, are legitimate is irrelevant — Israel is a recognized state and it’s not going anywhere. Israeli leaders may not have made the best deals, but the Palestinian leaders continuously neglected more pragmatic means of achieving prosperity and independence. True, most Palestinians are not responsible for these unsuccessful plays, and that’s the heartbreaking part; but neither is Israel. Why, then, is Israel portrayed as such a satanic entity? According to James Ron and Howard Ramos of Foreign Policy (“Why Are the United States and Israel at the Top of Human Rights Hit Lists?”), groups like Amnesty International and Human Rights Watch get cheaper and easier reporting on headline-making and democratic states such as Israel. Meanwhile, countries with the most “poverty, repression, and conflict” were hardly given passing mention. Nicer states such as Israel are easier to change, but Israel is often targeted by international councils with memberships comprising incomparably worse governments. Whether, for example, last year’s Israeli venture into Gaza was as righteous as it could’ve been is arguable. Realistically, Israel is a state with security issues it is duty-bound to address. This is a fact overlooked by the United Nations’ response to the related Goldstone Report, along with the facts concerning the appalling issues of unwarranted Palestinian targeting of civilians and usage of human shields. If you care more about your own sense of justice than peace and just want to hang a war criminal, worry more about the Hamas extremists who wage war with a doubleedged axe designed to ultimately increase both Israeli and Palestinian deaths. This much is true for anyone, including Israel: one could have done and can do better. Even so, Israel merely seeks security, is the most democratic state in the region and is the only proven defender of Jews the world has seen in thousands of years. There are a lot of problems in the world, and a lot of people to blame; why are you really pointing at Israel? Daniel Greenberg is a Near Eastern studies senior. He can be reached at

MAILBAG LGBTQ community exercises free speech in inappropriate manner

While I agree with everyone’s right to free speech and to promote and express their own opinions, I also believe that the image of TC Tolbert performing fellatio on a phallic object while his “partner” admires him in apparent ecstasy, is offensive and in extremely poor taste (pardon the pun). LGBTQ is doing a disservice to its members by exploiting impressionable young adults with such behavior. In their pathetic attempt to raise awareness to their cause, they have done nothing but ensure the general public will continue to ridicule them after this bizarre stunt, noted by the caption above the picture in the Wildcat. I also believe that a similar depiction, with“straight” individuals performing an act such as this would be viewed as porn and never be allowed a place in the Wildcat. LGBTQ: Quit trying to ram your issues down everyone’s throat (pardon this pun, also). I never witness heterosexuals professing their sexual preferences in public forums, and I wish you would be considerate enough to do the same. I bet Mr. Tolbert’s parents will be extremely proud to see this disgusting display of sexual expression and finally know exactly where their hard earned“education”dollars are being spent.

All Wildcats have a duty to support ‘College GameDay’ tomorrow

It’s been a while since I’ve written to the Wildcat, but I feel like we are all standing on the eve of the most important game about to be played in Arizona Stadium in over a decade, so I feel compelled to write and address my UA family. This weekend, our team has earned the right to play Oregon in what will be the first of the dominoes required to fall in order for our team to play for the conference title. So much hinges on this game that it has attracted national media attention and has landed the ESPN “College GameDay” football desk on our own Mall for the first time. It’s a moment that could propel us far beyond our wildest expectations even a year ago and it’s easy to get caught up in looking forward to Pasadena as our final destination. It’s for this reason that I wanted to write and put the focus where it needs to be, and that is the team. We as alumni, students, faculty, Tucsonans and Wildcat fans nationwide who have chosen to be on campus for this game should do so with the sole

purpose of supporting our team because of the great things they have already accomplished. Last year, we broke through the 10year hiatus from postseason play and won a berth at the Vegas bowl. I remember the purity of the excitement we all felt when our team played hard and put our school back on the map for bowl eligibility. We all were grateful of what we had earned and we lived that weekend in December like it was a family reunion long overdue. Last weekend, many of us expressed our initial disappointment when the Wildcats lost, because we thought it put their Rose Bowl hopes in jeopardy. Then the news came that USC lost, and after the smoke cleared in Berkeley, we realized that we still controlled our own destiny, and those hopes rested on this weekend. However, it is my belief that we should not get caught up in the long-term goal so much that we sacrifice what we need to do in the short-term, and that is to support the team on Saturday. We have all the makings of a conference title, but we should recognize this team for what it has done this season — enduring injuries, roster shuffles and finding a new quarterback who can lead this team. For this, we need to stand steadfast with our loyalty and support this team from the moment they step out on the field through the final moments of this game. No matter if we are winning or losing by 40 points at the half, I want this student body to do its part and stay the entire game and show the support for the team, no quitting. When those players walk back to the locker room when the last second has expired, I want them to be able to look up in the stands and see a crowd whose pride has been restored by the hard work of these players. We have the ability to give the team the edge by showing our support, in every part of the game, and we need to be there for that reason. When it’s all over, the ESPN desk will be loaded up on the bus, the cameras will be turned off, but we will be the recipients of the outcome our team earns us. If it means we continue on the road to the conference title, so be it. If it means our destiny lies elsewhere, so be it. We will support our team with undying loyalty. This weekend will show the measure of our players, their quality, but it will also show the greatness of our fans on national television. Let’s give the whole country something to admire by creating a red-out that spans the entire stadium for the entire duration of the game and show them all what Wildcats are made of. Bear Down and see you on Saturday. Kirk Sibley Class of 1999 and Wilbur the Wildcat, 1996-1999

Objections to women objectionable Rachel Leavitt columnist


ow that outrageous rumors of the illegalization of private insurance, slashing of Medicare benefits and implementation of death panels have simmered down, those opposing the Affordable Health Care for America Act (H.R. 3692) hypocritically aim to bamboozle a new target — women. Rep. Cathy McMorris Rodgers, R-Wash, and Rep. Lynn Jenkins, R-Kan, co-wrote an article in the Washington Times asserting that Democrats in Congress are attempting to rob women of their power and hand it off to federal bureaucrats under the guise of health insurance reform. They argue that “if Democrats in Congress and the administration had been listening to women,” then this reform would never have been drafted and passed — ergo, those darn reformists don’t care about

women, and it is the responsibility of females across the country to stand up to this heinous injustice and infringement on their Godgiven roles as family health care providers. Apparently, the only power women possess stems from their control over the health care their families receive. There is no question that taking responsibility for the health and safety of a family is of vital importance and often undertaken by women, but the suggestion that relief from this responsibility will diminish women’s value within their Cathy McMorris families and communities Rodgers Republican from is utterly demeaning. Washington A far worse scenario, and one far more prevalent today, is that of a single mother working two or more jobs to provide a roof and food for her children,

agonizing over that fact that she simply cannot supply her children with the health care that they need. What happens if she gets sick and is unable to work? Ask her if she feels that being provided basic affordable health insurance demeans her role in her family. But beyond the sexist stereotype imbedded in the claim, the idea that this reform will prevent women, or anyone else, from having a say in their health care is yet another attempt to victimize the most vulnerable elements of our society. According to, despite the insistent claims that Democratic health care bills “call for a Canadian or British-type system” in which everyone is insured through the government, “none of the bills being debated in Congress call for such a single-payer system.” So women around the world can sleep peacefully knowing that the essence of their very existence is still intact. But if Rodgers and Jenkins wish to criticize instances of sheer insolence towards women, perhaps they should look within their own

party. Arguably the most atrocious disrespect the house floor has witnessed this year, even beyond the tantrum of Rep. Joe Wilson, R-S.C., occurred Nov. 7 at a health care debate. The victims of the Grand Old Party’s unruly behavior were Lynn Jenkins none other than Republican from the very objects Kansas of their alleged concern and respect. As representatives of the Democratic Women’s Caucus stood at the podium expressing the ways in which they believe the bill would help women, representatives from across the aisle attempted to silence their female opposition with constant outbursts of “I object,” drowning out the voices of the very people Rodgers and Jenkins claim to be defending. Objections on the House floor are hardly deplorable, but this was not

objection for the sake of correcting fallacies or inappropriate conduct. They were objections for the sake of bullying women to suppress the expression of their views. Voters elect those who they believe best represent their personal opinions and values, representatives who will hopefully serve those principles in Congress. With each “I object,” thousands of citizens were silenced. With each “I object,” a representative was forced to break a promise to those who had voted for her, entrusting her with their voice. And each “I object” gave lie to the empty words of Rogers and Jenkins. If they wish to discuss the rights and due respect of women, perhaps the overworked and uninsured single mothers of this country would be a more suitable topic. But please spare us your sexist stereotypes and fictitious concern for our welfare; it’s unbecoming of a woman. Rachel Leavitt is a creative writing sophomore. She can be reached at

Chap consumes cannabis, circumvents cops

University of Arizona Police Department officers went to the Villa del Puente Residence Hall on Nov. 11 at 11:18 p.m. in reference to multiple people in the porch area possibly smoking marijuana. Upon arrival, officers observed a man wearing dark-colored shorts and a gray hooded sweatshirt in the immediate area. The man was holding a brown cigarette. When he saw officers approaching, he threw the cigarette into a trashcan and began walking away. Officers retrieved the cigarette and determined that it contained burnt marijuana. They attempted to contact the man and ordered him to stop, but he began running. A search of the area was conducted but officers were unable to locate the man. Witnesses on scene were unwilling to identify the man to police. The marijuana was taken into police property to be destroyed.

Couple contemplates move to California

UnAPD officers went to the La Paz Residence Hall on Nov. 12 at 2:03 p.m. in order to conduct a welfare check on a resident. Upon arrival, officers met with a resident assistant. The RA led officers to a room and told police that she heard a man and a woman inside and it sounded like they were distraught and crying. Officers listened at the door and could hear voices coming from inside. They knocked on the door and the voices stopped, but nobody responded to the knocking. They knocked again and identified themselves as police officers. A woman answered the door and stepped outside to talk to police while an officer went into the room to speak to the man. According to the woman, the man was her boyfriend of one year. The woman was upset because she felt that if she failed any of her exams, she would be forced to leave school and move back to California. The woman denied that they were arguing or that any physical confrontation had occurred. The man confirmed the woman’s story and also denied that any physical violence had taken place. Officers advised the woman to return to her room to defuse the situation. They also advised her to seek assistance if she felt that she needed it and gave her contact information for Counseling and Psychological Services.

Man gets a quickie outside of dorm

UAPD officers responded to the Kaibab-Huachuca Residence Hall on Nov. 12 at 8:15 p.m. in reference to a man possibly smoking marijuana in the area. On arrival, officers met with the community director. He told police that he was entering the residence hall when he noticed the smell of marijuana near the front door. He asked several people who were nearby if they noticed the smell and they stated that they did. The community director then made contact with a man who at first denied but then admitted to smoking marijuana. Officers made contact with the man inside the director’s office. The man told police that he had been studying in his room but had decided to go outside to smoke marijuana. He then produced what he called a “quick hitter,� which police described as a metal pipe that looked like a tobacco cigarette. Officers asked the man if he had any more marijuana in his possession and he stated that he did not, but offered that he might have some in his room. In a desk in his room, police found a medicine bottle containing a green, leafy substance. The bottle had a total weight of 11.4 grams. The man told officers that he bought the marijuana from an unknown man for $40. He further told police he was given the man’s number from a friend but no longer had it in his possession. He was diverted to the Dean of Students Office in lieu of arrest.

Police bruise cruiser

UAPD officers were responding to an incident at the intersection of Highland Avenue and 10th Street on Nov. 13 at 11:55 p.m. when they were involved in a vehicle collision. According to police, a fully marked Ford police cruiser was being repositioned in the southwest corner of the intersection when it struck a fire hydrant. The fire hydrant was unharmed but the cruiser sustained minor damage to passenger side of the rear bumper. Photographs were taken as evidence. No injuries were reported.

Man faces police but fears mother

UAPD officers were on patrol near the Arizona-Sonora Residence Hall on Nov. 14 at approximately 12:48 a.m. when they observed a man being assisted by another man. The man being assisted appeared to be having difficulty walking and was being supported by his friend. Officers contacted the pair and helped the man sit down. According to police, his speech was slurred and his eyes were watery and bloodshot. Officers asked the man if he had been drinking and he stated that he had not. Officers asked the man if he had been using any drugs and he stated that he had not. Officers asked why the man needed his friend to help him walk. The man asked police not to tell his mother and then admitted that he had been drinking “too much.� He told police he had been drinking Bacardi but then stated it had only been a little because he claimed he was “a lightweight.� Emergency Medical technicians from the Tucson Fire Department arrived on scene to evaluate the man’s condition. They determined that he did not need to be transported to University Medical Center and cleared him for release. Officers released the man and he was escorted to his room. Officers returned to the residence hall at 4:30 p.m. on Nov. 14 and contacted the man. Based on his admissions earlier in the day, he was cited on charges of underage person with spirituous liquor in the body and released. Police Beat is compiled from official University of Arizona Police Department reports. A complete list of UAPD activity can be found at

Beware of ‘greenwashing’

continued from page A3

Companies may use this practice to try to improve their image. “As a consumer and a citizen … just because a company advertises something in a certain way doesn’t mean I’m going to take that at face value,” said Stan Reynolds, an economics professor. “I think it’s important to look at what companies are actually doing.” Consumers can take initiative by using common sense as well as looking more closely at the products they buy and whether or not the manufacturers can back up what their products claim, Huber said. “One of the things we encourage people to do is to really look behind the ads and to find out where the money is going,” Brown said. The public should be aware of how the businesses they support spend their money to determine if they are investing in renewable sources of energy or just an attractive billboard, Brown said. At the same time, Reynolds said that people should not worry about businesses potentially capitalizing on the green craze. Businesses must give consumers what they


continued from page A1

want in order to make money, and if people demand environmentally friendly products, then businesses will deliver. “There are companies out there looking for ways to innovate, to provide better products, products that use fewer toxic chemicals, products that are less harmful to the environment,”he said. Papuga said a collective effort is more effective in changing environmental policies. “If we work together to ensure that there’s a law that basically says you can’t excessively package your product, that’s going to do far more than if every one of us in the room doesn’t buy that product,” Papuga said. There are a number of things happening now, such as a decrease in the supply of fossil fuels and an increase in population growth, that will require people to be sustainable even if they did not originally plan on it, Reynolds said. “Is it likely we’re going to sit on our hands and do nothing?”Reynolds asked.“I don’t think it is. I think we’re going to be moving at least in the right direction, just not as fast as some might hope.”

Infant has ‘always been a fighter’

“The last ultrasound she had showed her organs had twisted and not fully formed,”said Mike Martinez, Adrianna’s father.“At that point they knew she had a problem with her small intestine, but they didn’t know she didn’t have any small intestines until she was opened up two to three days after she was born.” Martinez said doctors suggested she could need a transplant but didn’t know if it was possible at the time. “About three weeks later one of the doctors contacted us and told us it is possible but we would have to wait at least six months or until she gets to 16-plus pounds because the bigger she got, the easier it would be to do the transplant,” he said. Adrianna also has a condition called situs inversus, in which all of the organs in her abdomen were on the wrong side, Gruessner said. The surgery was originally scheduled after a family friend agreed to donate parts of his organs, but at the last minute a deceased infant donor became available. “I’m very thankful to the family that donated their child’s organs,” Bowman

said. “I know it’s not an easy process. I’m very thankful to the family and the surgeons.” Gruessner said sometimes it’s necessary to use a living donor if a deceased donor is unavailable because “50 percent of these children that have that disease die on the (organ) waiting list or are removed because they are too sick. You want to avoid that by doing a living transplant.” Between 50 and 70 of these threeorgan transplants are performed in the U.S. every year and the survival rate is between 65 and 70 percent for the first year, Gruessner said. Adrianna’s surgery went well, Gruessner said. She will recover in the hospital for the next few weeks while her parents, who work at a call center for financial services, take turns visiting Adrianna each week. When she gets home she’ll be reunited with her siblings, 11-year-old brother Dominque Martinez and sixyear-old sister Raven Bradford. “She’s always been a fighter,”Martinez said. “That’s one thing myself and her mom have admired about her.”

ESPN crew members unpack equipment from their trucks parked on the Mall to prepare for Saturday’s 7 a.m. live filming of “College GameDay.” Bystander Will Robertson, a communications senior, snaps a few shots of the “GameDay” platform. “I never thought ‘GameDay’ would come here,” Robertson said.

ESPN event settles on Mall as students’ anticipation builds

The biggest challenge was deciding where to set up the stage, Brown said. Originally, they planned for the stage to be near the Cactus Garden on the Mall. However, once ESPN’s crew arrived and saw the campus, they determined the location east of Old Main would be better. The university has also provided office space for ESPN so they can communicate with their headquarters in Bristol, Conn. “We’re excited to have them here in town and we want to be a good partner in that respect,”Brown said.

A combination of police officers and private security will be working the event and checking bags, said Johnny Cruz, director of university media relations. Gov. Jan Brewer is also expected to be at the game and will attend a tailgate party with Air Force personnel from DavisMonthan Air Force Base. There will be an Air Force flyover of the tailgate area at University Boulevard and Cherry Avenue at about 5 p.m. “In general, the university is used to hosting major events on campus,”

he said. Brown called the economic impact “immeasurable.” “We think not only the campus community will come out to this event but also the Tucson community,”he said. Cruz said based on “GameDay” attendance at other universities, several thousand fans could attend the event. “It is a wonderful opportunity to introduce a very large audience to our campus, fans, teams and many aspects of the university,” he said.


President sheds positive light on bad situation

the largest, most ethnically diverse and best-qualified class in university history. While the academic quality of students at the university is on the rise, the commitment to higher education on the part of the Arizona State Legislature and throughout the country is steadily declining. “In less than two decades we’ve seen higher education’s portion of the state budget pie in Arizona decline from more than 16 percent to 10 percent,” said Shelton. Shelton emphasized that while the rest of the world faces the economic crisis by bolstering their higher-education budgets,

the United States continues to cut back on education spending, effectively reducing our ability to compete in an ever more technologically-based global market. Despite a dwindling education budget, Shelton said the university will continue to nurture the creativity of its researchers. A group of individuals who have contributed to some of the decades most prominent scientific discoveries and already received $80 million in stimulus dollars. “The story this year at the University of Arizona isn’t about budget cuts, it is about exceptional people making a difference in the lives of students and

the future of our state,” said Shelton. Shelton conceded that change will be inevitable at the university in the next few years. “We will have to do things differently and more efficiently, and there are some things we will simply no longer be able to do,” he said. However, one thing that will not change, he added, is the commitment of the university to make life better for the state of Arizona. “We have been a part of the dream of Arizona families for 125 years,” he said. “Our task is to keep that dream alive. Working together, I am confident we can succeed.”
