‘Don’t ask’ hurts U.S. forces By Luke Money ARIZONA DAILY WILDCAT
The military’s “Don’t ask, don’t tell” policy has always been a major talking point. The policy has come marching back into the news as a result of President Barack Obama’s promise to repeal the policy during his State of the Union address.
“This year, I will work with Congress and our military to finally repeal the law that denies gay Americans the right to serve the country they love because of who they are,” Obama said in his speech on Jan. 27. Since then, several high-profile individuals have also spoken out against the policy, including five-star general Colin Powell, former Vice President
Dick Cheney and current Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff of the U.S. military Adm. Michael G. Mullen. Supporters of the policy say the policy is an effective compromise to a complex issue and question the timing of the debate. At a Feb. 2 meeting of the Armed Services Committee, Defense Secretary Robert Gates announced the Pentagon’s
intention to conduct a yearlong review of the policy. “At this moment of immense hardship for our armed services, we should not be seeking to overturn the ‘Don’t ask, don’t tell’ policy,”Arizona Senator John McCain said to the committee. “This would be a substantial and MILITARY, page A3
Streetcar’s funding complete

The City of Tucson is awarded a federal grant in the amount of $63 million Thursday. The money matches funds already secured for a streetcar that will connect UA to downtown.
By Rodney Haas ARIZONA DAILY WILDCAT The final piece of the puzzle for a streetcar linking the UA campus to downtown Tucson fell into place Thursday when Transportation Secretary Ray LaHood announced $63 million in federal stimulus money to help fund the project. The total cost of the project is $177.5 million, with $88 million coming from the Regional Transportation Authority. “This $63 million will build four miles of streetcars service, connecting Tucson’s major activities center, including health centers, the state university’s main campus, several city entertainment sites and the planned development and more,” LaHood said at a press conference.“This project will make it easier for city residents who don’t own a car to commute to work and reach health clinics and other vital services.” Construction is set to begin this
Walk benefits tumor research By Alexandra Newman ARIZONA DAILY WILDCAT
The second annual Tucson Walk-AThon, held in support of brain tumor research will take place Saturday. The Students Supporting Brain Tumor Research club teamed up with the UA’s Steele Children’s Research Center to host the event. They aspire to raise $20,000. Shannon Timms, a marketing junior and Students Supporting Brain Tumor Research club co-president, served as co-chair of a Students Supporting Brain Tumor Research Walk-A-Thon in high school and helped plan a walk in Phoenix in 2007. “Not many people knew about it here in Tucson,” Timms said, but added that she met a lot of people who were affected or knew people affected by brain tumors. Timms, along with marketing junior and co-president Lindsey Erlick, started the club at the UA last year. They are responsible for planning the entire student-run walk. “My friend in high school passed away from a brain tumor; there are a lot of people affected,” Erlick said. “There is brain tumor research going on at the (Universty Medical Center), so it’s cool to have an organization down here.” Section-head of pediatric oncology at the University Medical Center Dr. Emmanuel Katsanis, says that brain tumor patients make up the second-largest population of children with cancer. “My research lab focuses on immunotherapy of cancer which means stimulating the immune system to fight different cancers,” Katsanis said. “So even though we don’t specifically work to fight brain tumors, what we do fights them as well.” Katsanis explained that he has developed a vaccine for which the UA owns the patent. A small biotech company obtained the licensing rights and is about to start clinical trials in Israel on patients with brain tumors. “It’s not a vaccine that prevents, it’s to treat or prevent it (the cancer) from coming back,” Katsanis said. “The research that we’re doing is not specifically for brain tumors, it’s just starting clinical trials for brain tumors.” Katsanis will explain the research at the end of Saturday’s walk. He says he appreciates any fundraising, particularly for pediatric cancer research. Since cancer is more common in adults, there is typically more interest in funding drugs to treat adult-onset cancers. “We’re always very supportive for students or anybody who does something like that,” he said. Last year’s walk attracted over 500 walkers and raised over $7,500. This year the two expect 500-700 people and $20,000. “We have a $10,000 sponsorship from the Arizona Diamondbacks and all the money is going to the UA Steele

Race, sexuality examined By Bethany Barnes ARIZONA DAILY WILDCAT Syndicated religion columnist Irene Monroe, the keynote speaker for UA’s black history month events, engaged audiences at the Student Union Memorial Center on Thursday. Monroe is the coordinator of the African American Roundtable of the Center for Lesbian and Gay Studies in Religion and Ministry at the Pacific School of Religion. Monroe encouraged discussion and kept the audience laughing while addressing serious issues within and surrounding the African American community, the LGBTQ community,
and the feminist community. Monroe challenged ideas of identity by asking white audiences members, and then black audiences members, “How are you white, and how white are you?” This prompted laughs and responses such as: “I just can’t get a tan.” “Celine Dion is my favorite singer.” “I’m from Wyoming.” “I’m white because I don’t have to think of an answer to that question.” Monroe said that classifying people as just white has robbed them of their ethnicity. “When you don’t know your ethnicity you don’t know your
history and when you don’t know your history you become dangerous,” Monroe said. People who heard Monroe speak said they enjoyed the controversial topic. “It was very stimulating both intellectually and spiritually,” said Erin Good, program coordinator for student assistance and advocacy. “It’s always great to have someone who will talk openly about race,”added Kate Bradsen, who attended the event. Richard Baker, of Residence Life, chose Monroe as the keynote speaker because he was impressed with a previous speech of hers. “It was an incredible opportunity that I had,” Baker said.

New question: What are your thoughts about gays in the military?
Musical theatre freshman What is your favorite song right now? My favorite song right now? Let’s think … Oh, the literal version of “Total Eclipse of the Heart.” The literal version? Yeah. That’s where someone takes the music video and changes the lyrics to fit the images, right? Oh, yes. So, this is stuff that you’re finding on YouTube? Yeah. That’s my main source. Would you ever make a literal version of a song? Why not? What song would you choose? What song? What song? “Greensleeves.” Oh, wait. That’s not a music video. “Video Killed the Radio Star.” That’s the one you’re going to do? Precisely. Now, “Total Eclipse of the Heart,” that’s a pretty intense song. Do you get down and groove whenever you hear it? I do. What’s it like when you groove? I want you to explain it in words. My groove is, um … I guess it can only be described as fiery. And there’s definitely passion behind it. Do you wear a special outfit when you groove? I dress up in my all-blacks. It really sets the mood. Do you make sure that you wear all cotton for easier mobility? Yeah, because cotton breathes really well. All right. If you were a famous musician, what kind of music would you make? Michael Bublé.

Archbishop Tutu’s DNA helps show African diversity
NEW YORK — Scientists who decoded the DNA of some southern Africans have found striking new evidence of the genetic diversity on that continent, and uncovered a surprise about the ancestry of Archbishop Desmond Tutu. They found, for example, that any two Bushmen in their study who spoke different languages were more different genetically than a European compared to an Asian. That was true even if the Bushmen lived within walking distance of each other. “If we really want to understand human diversity, we need to go to (southern) Africa and we need to study those people,”said
Stephan Schuster of Pennsylvania State University. He’s an author of the study, which appears in Thursday’s issue of the journal Nature. The study also found 1.3 million tiny variations that hadn’t been observed before in any human DNA. That should help scientists sort out whether particular genes promote certain diseases or influence a person’s response to medications. Findings like that could have payoffs both within Africa and elsewhere, experts said. The genetic diversity of Africa’s population is no surprise to scientists. Modern humans evolved on that
continent about 200,000 years ago and have lived there longer than anyplace else. So that’s where they’ve had the most time to develop genetic differences. The varied environments of Africa have also encouraged genetic differences. Africa was the ancient source of modern humans worldwide, so“we’re looking really back into the wellspring of our genetic origins here,”said Richard Gibbs, a study author from the Baylor College of Medicine in Houston. —The Associated Press

SYDNEY — J.K. Rowling has been named in a lawsuit alleging she stole ideas for her wildly popular and lucrative“Harry Potter”books from another British author. Rowling denied the allegation. The estate of the late Adrian Jacobs on Wednesday added Rowling as a defendant in a lawsuit J.K. Rowling it filed in June against Bloomsbury Publishing PLC for alleged copyright infringement, according to a statement released by the estate’s representatives, who are based in Australia. The lawsuit, filed in a London court, claims Rowling’s book “Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire”copied substantial parts of Jacobs’ 1987 book,“The Adventures of Willy the Wizard — No. 1 Livid Land.”Jacobs’ estate also claims that many other ideas from“Willy the Wizard”were copied into the“Harry Potter”books. Jacobs died in London in 1997. “Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire”is the fourth book in Rowling’s series and was published in July 2000. Sydney agent Max Markson, who is representing the trustee of Jacobs’ estate, Paul Allen, said Rowling was added to the lawsuit after Allen learned that the statute of limitations to sue her had not run out, as previously thought. “I estimate it’s a billion-dollar case,”Markson said Thursday. “That’ll be the decision of the courts, obviously.” J.K. Rowling said the claim was completely untrue. “I am saddened that yet another claim has been made that I have taken material from another source to write ‘Harry,’”she said.“The fact is I had never heard of the author or the book before the first accusation by those connected to the author’s estate in 2004; I have certainly never read the book. “The claims that are made are not only unfounded but absurd, and I am disappointed that I and my UK publisher, Bloomsbury, are put in a position to have to defend ourselves. We will be applying to the Court immediately for a ruling that the claim is without merit and should therefore be dismissed without delay.” In June, Bloomsbury said the allegation that Rowling lifted from Jacobs’ work was“unfounded, unsubstantiated and untrue.” Bloomsbury said Jacobs’ estate first approached the company in 2004 with its claims, but was unable to identify any text in the “Harry Potter”books that was copied from“Willy the Wizard.” In a statement, Allen said the estate is also seeking legal advice on whether the Harry Potter films and soon-to-beopened Harry Potter theme park breach copyright law. — The Associated Press

controversial change to a policy that has been successful for two decades,” McCain said. “Don’t ask, don’t tell,” a federal law, was passed under President Bill Clinton in 1993 and bans openly gay or lesbian men and women from serving in the military, though it does not ban closeted gays from service. If struck down, it would mark the largest upheaval of military policy since 1948, when former President Harry S. Truman issued an executive order that forced the desegregation of U.S. Armed Forces. “It’s a really bad law,” said Linda Thomas, a retired Air Force Colonel who sits on the board of Tucson’s Wingspan Community Center.“It’s time for it to go.” There are only four ways in which
people can be discharged from the military for violation of “Don’t ask, don’t tell”: By marrying a member of the same sex, trying to marry a member of the same sex, admitting they are homosexual or getting caught in a gay act. According to statistics furnished by the Servicemembers Legal Defense Network, over 13,000 members of the military have been discharged since the law was passed in 1993. In 2007, 627 military members were released, 46 percent of whom were women. These figures represent a sharp decline from 2001, when “Don’t ask, don’t tell” discharges peaked at 1,273 for the year. The United States is currently one of three militarily active members of the North Atlantic Treaty Organization
that bans homosexuals from openly serving in the military. The others are Greece and Turkey, though Russian law also states that only“well-adjusted homosexuals” are permitted to serve “in a normal capacity.” “I think it’s ridiculous,”said Jai Smith, a sociology junior and co-director of the UA Pride Alliance. “Why should anyone endure questions of patriotism because of who they are? It shouldn’t matter as long as you put your country before everything.” Aimee Leon, a member of the Tucson Air National Guard and sevenyear veteran of the Navy, is currently being processed out of the military for violation of the policy. Leon admitted to base commanders that she was gay
in September 2009. “I finally decided, after years and years, that I’m not going to limit myself and my morals just so I can receive a paycheck every month,” Leon said.“I won’t stand for it.” A spokesperson from the UA Recruitment Officers Training Corps’ Wildcat Battalion, who declined to give his name, said that he had no knowledge of any gay members currently serving in ROTC at the university, nor did he know of any time when “Don’t ask, don’t tell” had forced a dismissal from within the Wildcat ranks. “The policy is federal law,” he said. “We follow the law. If they change the policy — if they change the law — then we will follow that as well.”
Children’s Research Center,”Timms said. The Students Supporting Brain Tumor Research club has 10 members who have all helped with marketing the walk. “We were able to reach a greater audience this year by targeting Greek Life, Residence Life and different organizations and colleges,”Timms said. Their sponsors include Diamondback Drugs, the Arizona Diamondbacks and the Associated Students of the University of Arizona, who paid for the use of the UA Mall, table and chair rental and advertisements. The event will feature live music, free food and raffle prizes such as a two-night stay at the Marriott. The walk will begin at the UA Mall, continue to the Diamond Children’s Medical Center and return to the Mall for closing ceremonies, where a Diamondbacks player will present the $10,000 check. “Our walk is really unique because over 95 percent of all the money goes to brain tumor research,” Erlick said. “By getting sponsorships, we really cover everything.” Timms says the average nonprofit organization donates 80 percent of profits to their cause because they have to worry about administration costs. The two said the club is always looking to grow, but they are just happy to get other clubs involved. They receive many e-mails from students who want to help in any way they can. “Even though we’re a really small club, we get a lot of other clubs involved, which is what we’re all about: Getting the whole U of A community and Tucson community involved in supporting brain tumor research,” Erlick said. Timms said they met a freshman who is interested in taking over the club once they graduate and have made plans for her to shadow them next year.

Bias: The fogging and disruption of honesty and integrity in academic and journalistic reporting
What I don’t understand is how someone’s bias could actually drive him or her to create a fictitious situation in his or her head like the reporters on the issue of divesting from Israel last Monday. I must say, your intolerance and blatant anti-Semitic sentiment has blinded both of you, based on your opinions and reporting. Portraying the situation without bias and emotion is what good reporting and good academic scholarship really requires. This is especially true when it comes to the manipulations of quotes from President Shelton, who publically said he was heavily misquoted and that what he said was obviously and purposefully distorted. What were these two reporters thinking? Did both reporters not think people would investigate this“socalled”student group for divestment from Motorola due to the fact of cooperation and association with Israel? It upsets me, as someone who calls himself a Zionist and has studied both Zionist and Anti Zionist/PostZionist/Palestinian narrative versions of the conflict, that reporters like these cannot recognize and provide mutual criticism of both sides in this conflict, not just one (in this case, Israel). No one is perfect in the situation. Atrocities have occurred on both sides. There is no doubt that both sides in this very long conflict, many people (like myself) who are emotionally, spiritually, passionately and academically invested in the issue have made mistakes when dealing with their “other.”One must learn to accept and understand all sides and all opinions of this conflict. One must recognize claims of both the Israelis and the PalestinianArabs (because both sides do have legitimate claims to the land of Israel/Palestine) in order to pragmatically approach the situation. There is both a crescent moon and a star of David in the famous sign that uses religious symbols to spell the word“coexist.” Maybe we should all take the hint. To coexist, we need to accept everybody and every religion’s right to freedom of expression. Truth, understanding and acceptance will help move this conflict forward, but only if people are serious about a two-state solution, not manipulation of fact bias and utter hatred for another’s opponent. —Adam Bellos Judaic studies senior
ASUA pres and GPSC VP take stance on fees Since learning about the potential significant fee and tuition increases students face in Fall 2001, the Associated Students of the University of Arizona and the Graduate and Professional Student Council have worked to voice students’concerns and priorities to the UA’s administration. A fruit of our combined labor is a joint statement to President Shelton and administrators regarding proposed fee increases. This joint statement represents the collective wisdom of undergraduates and graduates throughout campus providing — in our best judgment under these trying circumstances — the most reasonable position on the proposed fees. The chief elements of our stance are: 1) to support maintenance of effort levels of funding to provide financial security to sustain critical student services and 2) to offer several general fee policy recommendations to ensure a consistent student-centered framework is instituted when creating, implementing and assessing fees. Specifically, the joint statement 1) supports the library increase in full because it is vital to our university’s promise of academic excellence and invaluable Research I status, and 2) supports only necessary increases of the Campus Health Services/Student Recreation Center and University Information and Technology Services fees to maintain the services that are immediate priorities to students. The ASUA-GPSC collaboration is deliberately aimed at ensuring that the UA administration takes our united student voice seriously. Because we are the elected university-wide student government bodies, we trust that administrators will seriously consider our ideas. Respectfully, the programs funded by the fees are primarily student services and facilities, and, therefore, the student voice is paramount and merits deference. Of course, these are controversial issues, and our fellow students are free to express their own opinions. The ASUA-GPSC joint statement offers the most reasonable approach because it navigates between the two extremes of supporting every increase in full and rejecting nearly all increases outright. Both stances are flawed because they do not make the difficult choices of prioritizing which increases are truly appropriate, and they do not face the unavoidable economic reality that some of these services are important to students and need our funding to function. In the end, our joint statement makes those difficult choices of prioritizing services at the appropriate and balanced level. We spent time and energy debating and voting on this joint statement because we care deeply about our university and its excellent people: Students, faculty, staff and administrators. We sincerely believe this approach provides the best solutions for supporting this great community during these challenging times. —Chris Nagata President, Associated Students of the University of Arizona —David Lopez-Negrete Vice president, Graduate & Professional Student Council

On ‘Brother Jed’s family speaks out,’ Feb. 17 OK, so the wife is wearing a shirt that says “You Deserve Hell”, and they wonder why students don’t do anything more than laugh at them.

On ‘Allegations against Israel blind, ignorant,’ Feb. 17 I commend Mr. Jacobs and the Daily Wildcat on finally publishing a legitimate article about Israel. It is nice to see an article with true facts and research to back up the writing. Mr. Jacobs hits the issue right on the nose, and I feel we definitely need more students to stand up to the hatred and false claims many people feel towards Israel. Being a sovereign democratic nation in the Middle East, Israel has been able to successfully persevere through all of the turmoil and false accusations. Israel has been able to thrive while even creating a safe haven for not only Jews but others who have been persecuted throughout the years, including refugees from many African countries as well as many Arabs. For those who say Israel is an apartheid state, are completely and utterly wrong! For example, in South Africa, blacks had no right to vote. In Israel, Arab citizens have a vote and
1. No backgound check was performed on Amy Bishop because she did not purchase the weapon. She borrowed it. 2. If the rules worked, then the shooting would not have occurred. The shooting occurred because Amy Bishop broke the law and decided to kill three of her colleagues. Nothing would have stopped her if she had wanted to kill more people. Everyone else was unarmed because they were following the rules. 3. Amy Bishop didn’t just “snap.” It’s clear from her record that she had a long history which no one seemed willing to acknowledge. She had a chronically short temper and went to extreme measures over minor nuisances. She shot her brother after an argument. She sought to create a local noise ordinance and took a neighbor to court over a barking dog. She was implicated in a pipe-bombing incident but questionably cleared. This shooting wasn’t an anomaly as you would like to present it. 4. No one is arguing that allowing concealed weapons is a “failsafe” to protect an entire campus. However, allowing people to carry legal weapons would at least give them a fighting chance if some incident occurs. It also discourages criminals since they are no longer guaranteed defenseless targets. Furthermore, your suggestion that people who want to carry legal, concealed weapons are acting only out of fear and paranoia defies reality. Do you wear a seat belt in the car? If so, by your argument, you are assuming that you will crash every time you drive anywhere. In reality, you don’t expect to crash, but you are restrained in the event that an accident occurs. People who carry weapons legally don’t expect to have to use them, but it’s there if they need it, like a seat belt, a last resort in the event of a potential tragedy. Erik S.

These points of pride don’t impact academics, so why look down on the student body for throwing the best parties? The key here is that maintaining an active and exciting social life is not necessarily counterproductive to academic achievement.

POLICEBEAT By Bridgette Doran ARIZONA DAILY WILDCAT
A University of Arizona Police Department officer was notified by a police aide on Tuesday at 9:37 p.m. of a man dumpster diving next to the Fair Wheels bike store at 1110 E. Sixth Street. The officer met with the man in a parking lot north of the dumpster and told the man he had been reported pulling a tire out of the dumpster. The man said he was never near the dumpster and“Whoever told you that was lying.” The officer asked the man for identification, and the man refused because he said he didn’t do anything wrong and that he would like the speak to the police officer’s supervisor. The officer’s supervisor arrived at the scene and confirmed the reasons the man was being questioned. After speaking with the sergeant, the man gave the officers his name and told them the reason he refused earlier was because he knew he had active warrants for trespassing and marijuana possession and did not feel like spending the night in jail. The officer asked the man if the bike on which he had been working in the parking lot was his. He said it was a friend’s, and he knew only the man’s first name. When the office told the man he would have to place the bike into UAPD property until the owner could claim it, he replied,“OK, whatever.” A warrant check showed that the man had two active warrants out of Pima County Court for criminal trespassing and two active warrants out of the City of Tucson Court for marijuana and drug paraphernalia possession. The man was taken to Pima Country Jail and booked on all four warrants. The bicycle was placed into property.
False panel conceals pipe
A UAPD officer responded to the Gila Residence Hall on Tuesday at 7:07 p.m. in reference to the smell of marijuana coming from one of the dorm rooms. When the officer arrived to the dorm, he spoke with a resident assistant, who took him to the room from which she thought the smell was coming. Through the door jambs, the officer could smell burning marijuana. After knocking several times, no one answered the door, but the officer could hear someone inside shuffling things around. The officer called the resident’s name, and the man inside tried to open the door, but a red towel that had been placed at the bottom of the door got in the way. Once the door had been opened all the way, the officer asked to speak to the resident outside. The man inside the room told the officer that he thought the room might smell because earlier he had been smoking marijuana outside. He also said that there were no drugs or paraphernalia in his room. After more questioning, the man said he did have a smoking pipe in his room. The officer asked the student to get the pipe, and when he went back into the room he said,“I can’t find it, I think I left it at my friend’s apartment.” The officer continued asking the man questions and the man finally said,“I’m sorry, I should have been honest with you earlier.” The man then took out a wooden panel in a desk and unwrapped a glass pipe. The man was cited and released on scene for possession of narcotic paraphernalia. The pipe was placed into UAPD property as evidence. The officer also completed a Code of Conduct referral for the Dean of Students.

Woman cries fraud
Loss Prevention for the UofA BookStore called UAPD on Tuesday at 10:08 a.m. to report a woman who was involved in an incident of fraudulence. The officer met with the woman who stated that a purchase had been made on her Bursar account without her knowing of it. The woman said she was a UA student during the fall semester and decided to move back to Queen Creek, Ariz., once the semester was over. While closing out her Bursars account in mid-January, the woman was told there was money she still owed the school. According to her bursars account, she owed $227.05 for an iPod touch and a case. The woman told the officer that, on the day the purchase was made, she was working at her job in Gilbert, Ariz. and could not have made the purchase herself. The officer told the woman that the case would be closed because there was no evidence as to whom could have made the purchase. A copy of the receipt for the iPod was made for the faulty purchase, and a copy of the woman’s signature was also taken to be compared with one another. The two signatures appeared to be different. After leaving the bookstore, the officer called the woman’s supervisor at her job in Gilbert. The supervisor said that she had not been working the day she said was. The officer also received an e-mail from the bookstore employee who made the transaction. The employee informed the officer that the purchase had been made with a CatCard on Jan. 28 or Jan. 29 and not on Jan. 18 like she claimed. Because of the absence of video surveillance and further evidence, the Police Beat is compiled from official University of Arizona Police Department reports.

UA might expand to Chandler
By Matt Lewis Arizona Daily Wildcat After several years of discussions between President Robert Shelton and the City of Chandler, the UA might offer classes in Chandler as soon as this fall. “We began establishing a relationship with the University of Arizona, really wanting them to be up here and part of the driving force of our science and technology park,”said Chris Mackay, the City of Chandler’s economic development director. Mackay added that the city has been building that partnership for the past three or four years. “The availability and timing of particular programs will depend on demand, delivery model, finances, our capacity to deliver and other factors,”said Mike Proctor, senior associate vice president of outreach for the UA. “That said, we may be able to aggregate distance delivery in particular highdemand programs as early as next fall, but more likely a year later, again depending on many factors currently under discussion.” The university is keeping its options open in terms of what departments or colleges will be at the new Chandler facility. “We have arranged visits for several department heads and deans to explore the opportunity and potential fit,” Proctor said. “Our early focus will be on graduate programs and a narrow slate of upper-division courses. We will not offer lower-division courses in Chandler.” Proctor said the City of Chandler has been a great partner throughout the whole process. According to Proctor, the UA chose Chandler because, “(it) is the home of some of the most significant technical expertise in the state and provides a good fit for many of our programs.” He added that it is his understanding that the City of Chandler sees the

relationship as mutually beneficial. “Our presence (in Chandler) will likely end up being something very different from what most people think of as a campus, per se. It may be a place where we end up having capstone experiences for students who live in the area, graduatelevel programs for working professionals, a distance learning hub for highly technical learners or a center for managing various service-learning or other highimpact applied programs,” Proctor said.
Ariz. legislation debates affirmative action, immigration By Luke Money Arizona Daily Wildcat The Arizona Legislature is currently debating two bills, which, if passed, would have far-reaching effects on immigration policy and ethnocentric teaching programs in Arizona. The first bill, HB 2281, would do away with any African American or Raza studies courses currently included in the curriculum of Arizona public schools. According to the language of the bill: “The legislature finds and declares that public school pupils should be taught to treat and value each other as individuals and not based on ethnic background.” Laura Briggs, the head of the UA women’s studies department, entertains concerns about what this bill might mean for public schools. “Here’s what we know about ethnic studies,” Briggs said. “They are compensatory on subjects that pertain to a specific portion of the student body. Especially here in the Southwest, it is just respectful. All this bill really does is add new levels to the bureaucracy.” Rob Ross, a legal adviser for the Tucson Unified School District, offered a legal viewpoint on the bills. “This bill has changed dramatically,” Ross said. “The current version prohibits instruction of classes that, one, promote the overthrow of the U.S. government, or two, promote resentment toward a race or class. It is very difficult to argue against either of those concepts, but the test is in the enforcement.” Legislative sponsors of the bill could not be reached for comment. Though the above bill would only affect students in public elementary, middle, or high schools the second bill currently being debated, SB 1097, is far less clear about where it applies. “That’s one of the major problems I see with this bill,” said David Lujan, the house minority leader in Arizona. “There’s no detail for school districts on where this bill applies or even what they need to do different in order to comply with it.” Ross, however, stated his belief that the bill only would apply to public elementary, middle and high schools. “School districts would be required to collect the data, the department of education is required to report it ‘district by district,’ and school districts would be subject to sanctions for failure to do so, so I would say this is meant to apply to K-12.” If passed, SB 1097 would require school districts to collect data from schools in order to find the number and effects of “illegal aliens” currently enrolled in Arizona public schools. Though SB 1097 stipulates that it would only go about accomplishing its goals“to the extent permitted by federal
law,” Lujan raised concerns about how the bill fits in under existing federal law, including the Supreme Court’s ruling on Plyler v. Doe (1982). Plyler v. Doe is a Supreme Court case that struck down a Texas education law that withheld state funds from providing education to illegal immigrant children. In its decision, the Court stated these children had 14th Amendment protections and thus could not be legislatively discriminated against. “According to existing legal precedent, school districts are prohibited from asking students for information to prove citizenship,” Lujan said. “I don’t know what else you can say about this bill but that it directly violates that and is unconstitutional.” Ross disagrees. “‘Plyer’ was specifically about Texas denying enrollment of students who could not prove citizenship. This bill does not state that at all,” Ross said. “However, even asking the question can chill access to public education and could lead to other discrimination claims.” While those bills are being debated in legislature, the issue of affirmative action will be decided in November, when voters will take to the polls to vote whether to amend the Arizona Constitution to discard existing affirmative action laws. affirmative action is a federal statute, which seeks to provide equal opportunities for employment and education to all peoples, regardless of sex, race, religion or national origin by requiring public entities to give certain consideration to minorities and women. “Federal legislation, affirmative action, it’s not about quotas or reverse discrimination,”said Mary BethTucker, the director of the UA Office of Institutional Equality. “It’s about reaching out and giving opportunities and preventing discrimination. That’s it.” Tucker is unsure how repealing state affirmative action laws might specifically affect the UA, particularly if existing federal affirmative action laws remain intact. “The university is subject to federal equal opportunity and affirmative action laws and regulations and would continue to be, regardless of the outcome of the state initiative,” Tucker said. “In any event, the University of Arizona is, and will continue to be, committed to ensuring equal opportunity and promoting the full participation and achievement of all of its students and employees. This includes all members of the campus community, including women and other underrepresented groups on campus,”Tucker added. Rep. Steve Montenegro, R-Litchfield Park, who co-sponsored the House bill and is a supporter of the affirmative action ballot referral, could not be reached by press time.
The UA is currently evaluating which programs might make sense at the Chandler location. The former Motorola facility, near the Ocotillo Golf Course on South Price Road and West Queen Creek Road, will be used for graduate classes in entrepreneurship and technology. “When you see that ‘A’ go up on that building, you’ll know they have arrived,” said City of Chandler Mayor Boyd Dunn in his State of the City address last week.

The UA will share the 152-acre site with Capital Commercial Investments, which is planning to redevelop the building into an employment park. The City of Chandler hopes the park, called Continuum, will house several businesses and potentially employ as many as 9,000 people. This comes as the city is facing a $17.5 million budget deficit for the next fiscal year, according to City Manager Mark Pentz. The UA is also involved in another project with Capital Commercial Investments

which would provide space for biotech startups. The site is a former Intel research and development facility, also located in Chandler at 145 S. 79th St., near the Loop 202 freeway and the Stellar Airpark. The $5.7 million facility the City of Chandler is calling an “Innovations Technology Incubator/Accelerator,” is meant to draw in companies who do work in the software design, engineering, biosciences, nanotechnology and sustainable technologies fields.
Rail is key to university’s growth
summer and is expected to be complete by summer 2012. When completed, the streetcar will run from downtown to University Medical Center, cutting though campus on University Boulevard and Second Street. “The rail is key to (the university’s) strategic growth strategy,” Tucson Mayor Bob Walkup said. “The board of regents wants all universities to put together a growth strategy of the future. But the problem with the UA is it’s bumping in into very old neighborhoods that are surrounding it.” Because the campus’ growth is restricted, UA President Robert Shelton is excited about the streetcar’s potential. “The possibilities are almost unlimited and what we need to do is proceed systematically and see what makes sense for the city and what makes sense for the university,” Shelton said. This may include moving classes and student housing to the downtown area. “It allows us to relieve some of the
pressure in the local neighborhoods for housing,” Shelton said. “You would have housing that is in the middle of a vibrant arts scene, a vibrant entertainment scene, a vibrant restaurant scene. That will be attractive not only to undergrad students but to graduate students and young professionals that are coming to the University of Arizona and launching their careers.” Janice Cervelli, dean of the College of Architecture and Landscape Architecture, has already been looking at the possibility of moving classes downtown. “We’ve been worrying about the lost opportunity for downtown and for the university,” Walkup said. “Clearly Phoenix and ASU — they figured it out. So it was time for us to say, ‘Why don’t we put something downtown?’ Because with a university presence, its energy, its people … it creates economic development.” The streetcar was part of the Regional Transportation Authority initiative
passed by voters in 2006 that called for the expanding of roads and SunTran bus service over the next 20 years at a cost of $2.1 billion. LaHood’s announcement for Tucson was just one of the 51 grants that the Department of Transportation announced, which totaled $1.5 billion in stimulus money. LaHood, who has been traveling the country as the White House celebrates the one-year anniversary of President Obama’s signing of the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act, said the Department of Transportation has funded 12,500 transportation and construction projects nationwide while making a serious down payment on rebuilding the nation’s aging highways, bridges, railroads, airports and seaports. “These projects will help us meet 21st century challenges to make our communities more livable, making our business more competitive while improving the environment and enhancing safety,” LaHood said.
Man crashes plane into IRS building The Associated Press AUSTIN, Texas — A software engineer furious with the Internal Revenue Service launched a suicide attack on the agency Thursday by crashing his small plane into an office building containing nearly 200 IRS employees, setting off a raging fire that sent workers running for their lives. Emergency crews recovered two bodies from the wreckage. The pilot was presumed dead and one worker in the building had been missing. Austin Fire Department Battalion Chief Palmer Buck declined to discuss the identities of those found, but said Thursday night that authorities had “accounted for everybody.” The FBI tentatively identified the pilot as A. Joseph Stack III, 53. Law enforcement
officials, said that before taking off, Stack apparently set fire to his house and posted a long anti-government screed on the Web. It was dated Thursday and signed“Joe Stack (1956-2010).” In it, the author cited run-ins he had with the IRS and ranted about the tax agency, government bailouts and corporate America’s“thugs and plunderers.” “I have had all I can stand,”he wrote, adding: “I choose not to keep looking over my shoulder at `big brother’ while he strips my carcass.” The pilot took off in a four-seat, single engineer Piper PA-28 from an airport in Georgetown, about 30 miles from Austin, without filing a flight plan. He flew low over the Austin skyline before plowing into the side of the seven-story, black-glass building just before 10 a.m. with a thunderous
explosion that instantly stirred memories of Sept. 11. Flames shot from the building, windows exploded, a huge pillar of black smoke rose over the city, and terrified workers rushed to get out. The Pentagon scrambled two F-16 fighter jets from Houston to patrol the skies over the burning building before it became clear that it was the act of a lone pilot, and President Barack Obama was briefed. “It felt like a bomb blew off,” said Peggy Walker, an IRS revenue officer who was sitting at her desk.“The ceiling caved in and windows blew in. We got up and ran.” At least 13 people were injured, with two reported in critical condition. About 190 IRS employees work in the building.
Lawyer: Prof. accused in slayings, likely insane The Associated Press HUNTSVILLE, Ala. — The lawyer for an Alabama college professor accused of killing three colleagues during a faculty meeting said Thursday he believes the teacher is insane, and that she says she can’t remember the shootings. Amy Bishop, who has a doctorate from Harvard University and has taught at the University of Alabama in Huntsville since 2003, has severe mental problems that appear to be paranoid schizophrenia, said Roy W. Miller, her court-appointed attorney. Bishop’s failure to obtain tenure at the University of Alabama in Huntsville was likely a key to the shootings last Friday, Miller said. Miller said the Harvard-educated Bishop apparently was incensed that a lesser-known school rejected her for
what amounted to a lifetime job. “Obviously she was very distraught and concerned over that tenure,”Miller said. “It insulted her and slapped her in the face, and it’s probably tied in with the Harvard mentality. She brooded and brooded and brooded over it, and then, `bingo.’” Authorities said three more people were hurt when Bishop pulled out a handgun and started shooting during a routine meeting with colleagues. Charged with capital murder and attempted murder, she is being held without bond. Miller said Bishop seems “very cogent” in jail, where he has spent more than three hours with her over two days, yet she also seems to realize she has a loose grip on reality. Bishop, who claims an IQ of 180, can’t explain the shootings, he said. “She says she does not remember
anything about it,” Miller said. Miller said he expects prosecutors to seek the death penalty, but Broussard said his office hasn’t decided whether to seek Bishop’s execution or a sentence of life without parole if she is convicted. “We’ll wait until we have every piece of evidence in front of us to decide on that,” Broussard said. He said investigators had yet to review evidence about Bishop’s troubled past, including her fatal shooting of her younger brother in 1986 in a case authorities in Massachusetts ruled accidental. In Bishop’s only public comments since the slayings, the teacher said the shootings“didn’t happen. There’s no way.” “What about the people who died?” a reporter asked as she was led to a police car hours after the killings. “There’s no way. They’re still alive,” she responded.

SHUTTER ISLAND: Movie vs. book
‘Fiddler on the Roof’ dances its way to Tucson By Emily Moore Arizona Daily Wildcat
Photo courtesy of Paramount Pictures
‘Shutter Island’ a Scorsese success By Kathleen Roosa Arizona Daily Wildcat From the initial discordant shout of classical music,“Shutter Island”makes its tone obvious — portentous and epic. Stemming from a novel of the same name and masterfully conducted by Martin Scorsese, the film takes the much-beloved genre of mystery and adds the slinky touch of classic film noir to form a story that will keep you genuinely entertained until the theater lights come back up. Set in 1954,“Shutter Island” chronicles Leonardo DiCaprio as Teddy Daniels, a U.S. Marshal investigating a patient’s disappearance at Shutter Island, a mental hospital for the criminally insane. The diminutive island is ominous and the staff is even more enigmatic. Ben Kingsley portrays the chief physician, Dr. John Cawley, whose small smiles glint like knives. As Teddy scours the rocky bluffs for an escaped patient, his past slowly emerges to reveal a glorious backdrop of trauma that both defines and destroys
his psyche. His past military infiltration of a Nazi concentration camp mingles with the recent death of his wife to drive Teddy onward in an attempt to grasp at a solution to his tribulations. Though DiCaprio might look like a frustrated pug at times, his performance is sturdy and

he rushes headlong with the audience through a myriad of explanations for all the crazy phenomena surrounding him. Kingsley repeatedly exposes different lenses through which to view the enigma, enabling the investigation to continue while simultaneously presenting numerous obstacles to the final unanticipated truth. “Shutter Island”registers deeply on a sensuous level. The score ranges from grand orchestral numbers to searing saws that will further raise the lump in your throat. Torrential storms utterly control the rough island with terrible beauty. The drip-drip of water in an empty hallway leaves you eagerly
awaiting the next opportunity to jump in your seat. Numerous characters with mental disorders coupled with confusing ghostly signs create more dead ends than a game of Clue. In the background a lighthouse looms, hinting at some fate that both draws and repels. It might not be Scorsese’s best work compared to“Taxi Driver”(1976) and “The Departed”(2006), but it appears that he’s trying more to entertain than to make imposing statements. Movie buffs can appreciate the Hitchcockesque staccato camera shots and multiple plot reversals. Though the plot is not particularly fresh, the storytelling ultimately becomes more intriguing than the story itself. There are only so many tricks in the book, and“Shutter Island” unashamedly masters all of them. Don’t watch“Shutter Island”if you suffer from any of the following conditions: An abnormal fear of rats, jagged heights or nastily delicious psychotic people.“Shutter Island”is specifically formulated to treat boredom, empty weekends and milder cases of cinephilia. Side effects include laughter, quick thinking and dropped jaws upon watching the final scenes. But be forewarned — it may even induce a second viewing.
Prosaic paranoia crowns Lehane’s ‘Island’ By Brandon Specktor Arizona Daily Wildcat Dennis Lehane is no stranger to film. Not only has he been a guest writer for three episodes of HBO’s“The Wire” and even worn that thick-brimmed director’s cap on the set of his own independent film“Neighborhoods” (1990), but his print oeuvre even boasts an apparent cinematic quality. Now joining the Oscar-winning adaptation of “Mystic River”(2003) and“Gone Baby Gone”(2007) is the genre-bending “Shutter Island”— a narrative that is as much film noir and psychodrama as it is gothic literature. The protagonist is U.S. Marshal Teddy Daniels, a gruff, chain-smoking gumshoe with the persuasive power of Raymond Chandler’s Marlowe. We don’t get to see Teddy working the mean streets, though; his introduction comes in a cramped lavatory, puking himself into delirium on a ferry bound for a remote island off Boston. The island is Shutter Island, an ominous slab of rock housing a maximumsecurity clinic for the criminally insane. As Daniels and his new partner, the wisecracking Chuck Aule, navigate the labyrinthine corridors of Ashecliffe Hospital and the twisted crevasses of the island in search of an escaped murderess, they encounter more questions than answers. In the fashion of a hardboiled procedural, this is to be expected. Where Lehane’s story truly deviates from other detective stories is in his incorporation of a much greater, more psychological mystery: How did Daniels get that stick shoved so far up his ass? While the mystery of the escaped patient grows ever more suspicious, the mystery of Teddy’s past is revealed little by little, eventually becoming the novel’s primary focus. Starting with the initial bout of seasickness, the text slowly explores the compounding torments of Teddy’s life: the death of his father at sea, the alleged death of his wife
in a manmade fire, and eventually Teddy’s own spiritual death in the frigid courtyard of a WWII internment camp. This narrative shift also fosters a stylistic shift, when the pulpy, B-movie diatribes between Teddy and Chuck begin disintegrating into shadows of gothic isolation and claustrophobia. But Lehane’s network of thematic references
eyes “too wide, as if something hot were prodding them from inside her head.”A regiment of mental patients as diverse as those from Ken Kesey’s “One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest” brims with deranged charm, but they act as warily toward Teddy as he does toward them. The island itself rounds out the cast, characterized with as much dirty history and natural malevolence as any of its eclectic residents. Dennis Lehane The differences between Shutter Island “Shutter Island” the book and Harper Collins Publishers “Shutter Island” the movie are purely in the details. 2003, 369 pages Screenwriter Laeta Kalogridis captures the pulpy language of Lehane’s protagonists expertly, and director Martin Scorsese brings the gothic hostility of the island and Ashecliffe Hospital to a stunning reality. What is reduced, obviously, is the sheer depth and history within each of Lehane’s characters — their inner thoughts and fears, their subtle edginess around Teddy. Other details in the mystery, such as the cryptic alphanumeric code discovered in the escaped Solando’s cell, are significantly condensed for the sake of screen time. The prolonged paranoia is well worth the read. In a recent press conference, Lehane expressed cynicism at the positive critical response to“Mystic River.”“There’s Photo courtesy of rfplreads.wordpress.com something bourgeois about the doesn’t stop there. book if the critics got it,” he said.

Join the Tucson Convention Center on Tuesday for a trip back to simpler times full of tradition, love and Judaism in “Fiddler on the Roof” starring Theodore Bikel. The show — with such hits as “If I Were A Rich Man,” “Matchmaker, Matchmaker,” and “Miracle of Miracles,” — comes to Tucson after having the lead character Tevye replaced twice. Chaim Topol, who played Tevye in the movie, had to leave due to shoulder injuries and was replaced by Harvey Fierstein, who had to leave due to prior commitments.
