Tucson offers sex health variety Student By Bethany Barnes ARIZONA DAILY WILDCAT More than 2,000 women between the ages of 18 and 24 became pregnant in 2005, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. Of that number, 521 chose to abort, 1,321 gave birth and 293 experienced fetal losses. Most college students fall within

that age range, so it’s a potential issue UA students face. In Tucson, there are only five centers available to students dealing with pregnancy or other sexual health issues. Campus Health Service offers many of the same services for students most pregnancy centers provide. Health insurance is not needed to use Campus Health, and students only need to be

registered for one credit hour to take advantage of the services. The Women’s Health Clinic at Campus Health Service offers testing a STDs and pregnancy, birth control pills and emergency contraception. Students can also take advantage of Campus Health Service’s Counseling and Psychological Services. “Students can be directed to the Women’s Health Clinic at Campus

Health, Planned Parenthood, a county health clinic, a private physician or a women’s clinic for testing and guidance,” said Terri West, an administrative associate at Campus Health Service. “Early diagnosis is valuable and encouraged. If the student is pregnant and decides to keep the baby, she should begin PREGNANCY, page 5

New research finds heartbreak leads to physical aches By Jazmine Woodberry ARIZONA DAILY WILDCAT Emotional distress sometimes occurs in tandem with physical pain, according to a recent study by a group of researchers at the UA. The group found that the area in the brain that controls physical pain is also the center

for emotional pain. Richard Lane, a psychiatrist and a UA professor of psychiatry, headed the study, along with Carolyn Fort, a senior research specialist with the Department of Psychiatry. They studied the link between emotional trauma and physical pain, such as chest pains. Arizona Pain Research group,

based out of the Pharmacology department, is in a partnership with the UA and Tucson medical professionals, said Janet Stark, editor at the public affairs office of the Arizona Health Sciences Center. The researchers were among the first to publish their study on emotional pain and its physical manifestations.

“Social pain and actual pain activates some of the same brain areas,” Lane said. The study focused on one-minute brain scans measuring heart rate variability during emotional stimulation. These scans showed the flow of pain

Several Associated Students of the University of Arizona senators made it to their weekly meeting after returning from a busy day lobbying at the state capitol. ASUA President Chris Nagata spent the day in Phoenix, along with Sens. Katherine Weingartner, Hilary Davidson, Leo Yamaguchi and Executive Vice President Emily Fritze. All three state universities participated in the annual event known as Lobby Day. More than 100 student representatives were there to talk to state lawmakers. The Arizona Students’ Association was also there lobbying for three initiatives: a common coursenumbering bill, a work-study bill and a voter access bill. The common course bill met with unanimous support in the State Senate, and is now headed to the House, Nagata said. If passed, the bill would mandate a state standard for numbering courses, preventing students from having to repeat courses that don’t transfer. The work-study bill, if passed, will open up more employment and financial aid opportunities for students. The voter-access bill is designed to give students the same opportunities faculty and other university employees receive on voting days. If passed, students would be excused from class to vote, without getting penalized. Weingartner said she enjoyed meeting the legislators and touring the capital at her first Lobby Day. “It was really nice to meet the person who represents me,” she said. “A lot of them have wonderful diverse personalities and they love students.” In the wake of the poor economic climate, Nagata announced that ASUA has partnered with ASA to host a free financial aid workshop today from 5 to 6 p.m. and again from 6:30 to 7:30 p.m. in the Manuel T. Pacheco Integrated Learning Center Room 125. The workshop will inform students about several available financial aid opportunities. “We really want to make sure we’re giving students as much access and information as possible,” Nagata said. During the workshop, students will learn how to fill out the Free Application for Federal Student Aid form. They will also receive information about applying for other loans and grant money. ASUA and ASA plan to host several similar workshops throughout the semester. A presentation hosted by Lon

Everyone has a story: Thomas Fleming


The Arizona Daily Wildcat’s new weekly segment “Everyone has a story” aims to tell the story of an interesting person on the UA campus. This week, we’ve interviewed UA professor and associate astronomer Thomas Fleming who teaches the Astronomy 203 and Natural Sciences 102, The Physical Universe, courses. Most people don’t know their dream career at 12 years old, but Fleming did. In 1961, Fleming gazed at the television set as John Glenn went into space. It was then that Fleming knew he wanted to work in astronomy. “When I young, Carl Sagan went on the Johnny Carson show and I remember thinking,‘God, this is so cool.You’re relying on science, on what can be proven, and not on wild speculation,’” Fleming said.“I also

saw that the universe is much more interesting and bizarre than people’s fantasies and imaginations.” Sagan was a famous American astronomer, astrophysicist and author with Hollywood connections, who presented the 1980 television series“Cosmos: A Personal Voyage,” and wrote popular science books such as “Contact,” which became a major motion picture in 1997. Fleming may have known his dream job in middle school, but that didn’t stop him from being a normal kid. “I knew that if I wanted to pursue astronomy, I would play football and practice singing in high school and junior high school while I still could,”he said. Fleming played football in high school in Canton, Ohio, where he was born and raised. Fleming got a 4.0 GPA and sang in musicals such as“The Music Man.” He wanted to go to Cornell University

because Sagan taught there, so he decided to apply there and Ohio State University for his undergraduate studies. Fleming ended up studying physics at Cornell on a full scholarship. “I was really excited to go where Carl Sagan was,” Fleming said. “But when I arrived at Cornell in 1978, I learned that Sagan was living in Los Angeles.” Fleming did eventually get to meet Sagan during his junior year of college. As an undergraduate, Fleming never lost sight of his passion for music. He sang in the Cornell Glee club and Cornell Chamber of Singers. He sang at Carnegie Hall twice, and once at the Kennedy Center. In 1982, Fleming came to the UA and became a teaching assistant for about four years. He did an observational thesis with the telescopes at the university and won an STORY, page 5

Psychology freshman So the Tucson rodeo is about halfway over. Have you ever been to one? No. Did you ever want to go to one? Yeah, I think it’d be interesting to go. Why would it be interesting? Just because I’ve never been to one before. Would you ever want to ride in one? It’d be a good thing to check off my bucket list, yeah. If you could ride any animal what would it be? Um — an eagle. Why? Just so I could have that freedom of flying without being covered in an airplane. So do you like airplanes then, if you like flying? I’ve only been on an airplane like three times but yeah. So are you from around here then? Yeah, I’m from Phoenix. Nice. Do you think you could lasso something? Probably not. If you could, what would you lasso? Umm. That’s a good question. If it had to be in this room… Nothing. You would lasso nothing? Yep. Did you want to be a cowboy when you were little? No. What did you want to be? An astronaut. Why? Because I like flying. Didn’t I say that already? Well, astronauts don’t fly, do they? Well, floating. I like floating. How else do you entertain yourself by floating? In water. So do you swim a lot? Yeah. I was actually on the swim team in high school. You probably have to swim a lot in Phoenix because it’s so hot, right? Yeah. Do you have a pool? I used to. We filled it in. Why? Because my parents decided to … they just didn’t take care of it. Yeah, I probably wouldn’t take care of a pool either. Neglect.Yeah. I can’t believe we don’t get the day off tomorrow. Or Friday. For what? The rodeo. Pima does! Does Pima really? Yeah, Pima gets Thursday and Friday off for the rodeo. Do they go like a field trip? I don’t know, they just get it off. I doubt it.

New species of dinosaur found in eastern Utah rock SALT LAKE CITY — Fossils of a previously undiscovered species of dinosaur have been found in slabs of Utah sandstone scientists said Tuesday. The bones found at Dinosaur National Monument belonged to a type of sauropod — long-necked plant-eaters that were said to be the largest animal ever to roam land. The discovery included two complete skulls from other types of sauropods — an extremely rare find, scientists said. The fossils offer fresh insight into lives of dinosaurs some 105 million years

ago, including the evolution of sauropod teeth, which reveal eating habits and other information, said Dan Chure, a paleontologist at the monument that straddles the Utah-Colorado border. “You can hardly overstate the significance of these fossils,”he said. Of the 120 or so known species of sauropods, complete skulls have been found for just eight. That’s mostly because their skulls were made of thin, fragile bones bound by soft tissue that were easily destroyed after death.

“This is absolutely No. 1 in terms of projects I’ve had the opportunity to work on,” said Brooks Britt, a Brigham Young University paleontologist who coauthored a study on the fossils along with University of Michigan researchers. The new species is called Abydosaurusmcintoshi. Researchers say it’s part of the larger brachiosaurus family, hulking four-legged vegetarians that include sauropods. —The Associated Press

Clay Aiken takes NC stage for gay rights

RALEIGH, N.C. — More than a year after coming out, Clay Aiken is speaking at a gayrights event in his hometown. Aiken will deliver a speech about gay rights this weekend at the Human Rights Campaign Carolinas gala in Raleigh, The News & Observer of Raleigh Clay Aiken reported Wednesday. Actress Meredith Baxter, who recently came out as a lesbian, will also speak. The 31-year-old Raleigh native, pop singer and 2003 “American Idol” runner-up said he wrote his own speech after remarks provided for him proved too political, including a slam aimed at former President George W. Bush. “I don’t feel like this is the place to be horribly politically charged and bash people and talk about the wrongs that have been done,” he said. “My goal is to be hopeful, that it’s time for everyone to have equal rights.” Aiken’s goal is to urge Americans to support equal rights for all, which may take decades he said. He says that means allowing homosexuals to marry and enjoy rights that heterosexual couples take for granted like inheritance and hospital visitation. “It’s more important to me, as a parent, that my son have all the rights — if he’s gay — than it is for me. I don’t want to do anything today that’s going to inhibit, or be a detriment to, his rights,” he said. Aiken’s son, Parker, was conceived via in vitro fertilization and born in August 2008. Parker’s mother is music producer Jaymes Foster. Foster, who lives in California and Aiken, who lives in the Raleigh area, share custody. Aiken said he would probably attend Saturday’s event with his bodyguard and without family members or friends. Some family members have handled news of Aiken’s homosexuality better than others, he said. “Some Southern families like to sweep things under the rug,” he said. “We just don’t talk about it.” ­— The Associated Press

registry starting in the brain and moving through the body. This study of the brain’s activation during emotional pain is decades old. “We were one of the first research groups to publish research regarding emotion,” Lane said of the first study conducted in the 1990s. Students on campus have noticed how hard emotional pain is to deal with and how it can cause physical pain. “I’d say there’s different types of emotional pain, sometimes it’s frustration, usually emptiness,” said Eric Hopkins, a civil engineering freshman. “There’s always something on your mind and you’re kind of just

missing that something.” Other students noted that a lack of emotional support adds to the stress that pain causes. Lane said this kind of research is being applied to the loss of a loved one, a painful breakup or a move away from friends and family. “It was the distance and not having the emotional support that I had at home,” said Genelle Barr, an elementary education freshman, about her headaches after her grandfather died. Several articles were published about the UA scientists’ research. The topic of the March 2010 issue of Scientific American Mind will be how the study applies to various emotional stresses.

Green fee good theory, bad time

Huber, chairman from the independent organization Students Advancing Green Enterprises, was met with some hesitation from the ASUA senate. Huber met the senate with an update and summary on the sustainability fee proposed by UA President Robert Shelton. If the Arizona Board of Regents approves the fee, students would be required to pay $12 per semester. Fritze noted that the UA can’t keep pushing back green initiatives but wondered if now was the best time to implement more fees. Huber assured the senate that based on a survey of 1,000 random students, an overwhelming majority supported a sustainability fee. Students do not currently pay a sustainability fee but Huber said it is now more important than ever to begin building energy-efficient projects on the UA campus. “It will benefit everybody and help us meet our climate commitments of eventually getting to a zero-carbon state,” Huber said.


Sen. Tyler Quillin was curious whether the $12 fee would be enough to cover the high cost of sustainability initiatives. Huber said the fee will pay for itself with the money that the university saves. These funds would eventually go back to students. “I think it’s one of the bright spots in Shelton’s proposal,” Huber said. “We can leverage that money to make more partnerships.” Fritze also announced that the Spring Break Safety Fair is scheduled for March 4 from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. on the UA Mall and mentioned that Spring Fling kicks off March 8 and runs through March 11.

Bioscience students network with top AZ companies By Luke Money Arizona Daily Wildcat

UA bioscience students met with some of Arizona’s largest bioindustry companies during the Second Annual UA Student/Bioindustry Networking Event on Wednesday. “We started this last year to show UA students what bioindustry opportunities there are in the state,” said Nina Ossanna, Bio5 Institute business development and strategic planning director and senior licensing associate for health sciences advanced projects. “It may be our second year doing it, but based on the response we’ve received this should become a regular event.” Students were able to network with some of Arizona’s top bioscience

companies. Approximately 175 students attended the event. “Part of the mission of Bio5 is build a pipeline between UA students and biomedical and bioengineering companies in Arizona,” said Kevin Hall, Bio5 Institute director of research training and career development. “Companies get to come in and see the quality of students we have here, and students can see what Arizona has to offer. It’s really a win-win.” Ten private companies attended the event. They included Genomics USA, Ventana Medical Systems, and W.L. Gore. “The UA has great engineering programs and lots of really quality students,” said Cody Bliss, a product specialist at W.L. Gore. “We like the to get connected with students in

our field, and there are lots of great students here.” University Medical Center medical labs, UA Natural Products Center and UA Career Services were also present. “These kind of events are all about connecting students with the world of work,” said Cyndy Watson, an assistant director at Career Services. “Students may come here to earn a degree, but eventually they have to leave. Events like this help them to be prepared for what comes next in their lives.” Students were also excited about the opportunities at the event. “I came here to learn about internships in Tucson,”said Meredith Roberts, a biosystems engineering junior.“There are a lot of opportunities here for future networking.”

CPAC reminds conservatives that beliefs still stand


e may be at that toilet bowl retching because we went to a party, but we will make it because we know tomorrow will again be morning in America,”Glenn Beck said at last week’s Conservative Political Action Conference, which I was lucky enough to attend among 10,000 others. Imagine sitting through Beck’s speech, which was pregnant with alcohol and sickness references, through head-pounding dehydration as a result of sitting in reserved seats for several hours without drinking any water, and you’d be me. Beck explained that this country is experiencing tough times in all senses of the word, yet it remains United States of America at Laura Donovan the the end of the day, and for this, we Columnist should all be grateful. I may have been nauseous and parched for the duration of Beck’s 45-minutelong speech, but I was still at CPAC, which I hoped would promote more responsible government spending. Whether you’re a staunch Republican, moderate conservative or political leftist, there’s a lot you can take away from CPAC, if nothing more than great stories. Media outlets and blogs such as the Daily Beast, the San Francisco Chronicle and CBS News have all been talking about Beck’s keynote speech, even though he was only one of the dozens of CPAC speakers at the three-day conference. It would be impossible to describe all aspects of CPAC, but I’d like to cover more than just the heavily discussed Glenn Beck performance. Scott Whitlock of News Busters reported the shocking speech by Ryan Sorba ofYoung Americans for Freedom,“Sorba denounced CPAC for allowing a group of gay conservatives to participate in the event. Sorba screamed,‘I’d like to condemn CPAC for bringing GOPRIDE to this event! Bring it! Bring it! I love it.’” Whitlock did not report, however, that the CPAC crowd broke out into cacophonous boos and jeers after Sorba said this, and they kept at it until Sorba left the podium. It’s important to note that many CPAC’ers, myself included, were highly uncomfortable with and disgusted by Sorba’s homophobic message. This sort of intolerance brought unwelcome negativity to CPAC. Ann Coulter gave a 10-minute speech, which drew laughter from the audience, especially when Coulter said,“Keith Olbermann is a girl.”It was slightly off-putting that she seemed so eager to leave the stage, however.“I have a flight to catch!”she repeatedly told the crowd as people raised their hands to ask something. After interrupting a woman who had a long-winded question, Coulter walked away from the podium to apparently hop on an airplane. Coulter was the only speaker to display this kind of divalike behavior, which came across as disrespectful to the audience members. Dick Cheney, who was not scheduled to come to CPAC, made a surprise visit on Thursday. The crowd went nuts and a series of people cheered,“Run, Dick, run!”in hopes that Cheney will run for presidency in 2012. Cheney reminded everyone that this is not in the cards. Just days later, he suffered severe chest pains which reportedly resulted from a mild heart attack. Clearly, he’s in no shape for the commander-inchief position. CPAC had a lot of excellent panelists and memorable lesserknown speakers. Ann McElhinney, director of Not Evil Just Wrong, received a standing ovation at the end of her speech, which entailed her calling Avatar a“beautiful, idiotic film.”I still haven’t seen the film, but it’s not something I’d pay to watch, especially considering the whiny viewers who want to kill themselves because they can’t live in a perfect society like Pandora. This naive attitude gives new meaning to the phrase,“cry me a river.” It was slightly amusing to watch some of the cocky college student speakers crash and burn as they boasted about their marginal campus accomplishments. CPACers chanted“Ron Paul”or“Dick Cheney”as one student jokingly said into the microphone,“I know you’re all really here to see me.” Lesson to all college kids: Don’t be so obvious about your pomposity if you have the opportunity to talk at one of the biggest political conferences in the world. Humility, particularly in this setting, is golden, particularly when speaking alongside pundits like Glenn Beck and politicians such as Scott Brown. Overall, CPAC reminds all types of conservatives that their beliefs and ideas are not completely dead in this country. I commend Glenn Beck for telling the Republican Party that it has had spending problems in recent years, and I hope that this constructive criticism will ultimately strengthen the GOP. Perhaps President Barack Obama could even take this advice so the United States as a whole would be better off. — Laura Donovan is a creative writing senior. She can be reached at

Comments from

An ‘Amendment’ to the argument

On ‘Tuition may go up more than $2K,’ Feb. 24

This letter is in response to the letter written on Tuesday, Feb. 23, entitled “Federalism?” The writer fails to recognize that states are sovereign only to a certain degree. Their rights as a sovereign government extend only as so far that they do not supersede the federal constitution. While the 10th Amendment does protect the states from an overreaching federal government, it does not allow the states to rule with absolute freedom. The states are subject to the authority of the federal government and all of its laws and regulations, which implies that the states are an entity of the federal government. With this in mind, a state may not break any portion of the federal constitution or it will be subject to the courts of this nation. By allowing a copy of the Ten Commandments to be placed in front of a state capitol, the federal constitution is broken. The establishment clause prohibits any religion from being promoted, which the Ten Commandments most certainly do. No matter what the 10th Amendment says, the states are subject to the federal constitution. Zachary Weinstein Biochemistry freshman

Chicken in advocate’s clothing

Laura Donovan’s Wednesday article on Arizona Public Interest Research Group’s campaign to raise a new student fee is a timely look at a tricky organization. PIRG’s vague promise of “social change” might sound nice, but don’t think for a minute that these chicken-suited petition passers will work in your interest. In fact, the group has a terrible track record when it comes to real student advocacy. At other colleges with mandatory fees, PIRG has funneled mandatory fee money away from students to off-campus organizers. The organization’s national leadership busted a budding union in its Los Angeles offices in 2006, and currently faces a class-action lawsuit for failing to pay its employees. But most important, students simply should not pay mandatory fees to support political activism with which they may disagree. Sure, PIRG is “nonpartisan.” But would you vote for a mandatory fee paid by all students and donated by default to the nonpartisan, nonprofit National Rifle Association? How about the left-wing organizers at ACORN or the libertarian Cato Institute? All these organizations are nonpartisan nonprofits. None of them are apolitical. This fee is no different: A mandatory student contribution to PIRG is a forced contribution to support political action. Students soundly rejected PIRG’s rent-seeking in last year’s election. I hope they’ll have the sense to do so again. Connor Mendenhall Economics senior

On ‘America: A nation divided,’ Feb. 24

So basically, because I disagree with Obama, that automatically makes me a racist? That’s what I got from this article. Kevin W. This is a great article, really thought-provoking. I agree with your point of view, Jan. Natasha

On ‘Chris Brown’s penance still unpaid,’ Feb. 24

Thank you Zachary! I finally found an article that shares my perspective on this ordeal. I received such a hard time from friends when this first happened because I would refuse to listen to the guy. I was so outraged that my own girlfriends would scoff at me for turning down the music or changing the station when a song by him would come on the radio. Thankfully, I’ve never been a victim of physical abuse. However, this does not mean that I should turn a blind eye to this very real and very ugly act that happens to millions of young women everyday.“What will that same black eye cost you?”Think about it! M. Natalie Contreras

On ‘Wildcats’ frustrations grow,’ Feb. 24

Hate me for saying this all you want, but I’m prepared to accept the reality of the streak ending. North Carolina’s streak had to end and ours will too. Why not just end it now, deal with the pain, get over it and start fresh in a new era? The streak was Lute’s era. The Lute era is over. We’re in the Sean Miller era.Yes, it will be painful to see NIT stop standing for ‘Never in Tucson’ but the NIT is better than no post-season at all. Look what Oregon State did this year after winning the CBI last year. We’re just going to have to take what we can get. Kevin W. How did U of A let Josh Pastner go? John from NY No Sir is right. Streak is still a go until we see otherwise. Season ain’t over yet! Guert

A perfunctory circle-jerk followed.“It’s Said Kris Kreutz, director of administrative services for Campus amazing to think about the planning that went into this center,”Melissa Health, in a previous Wildcat article (“Rec Center seeks support for Vito, the UA vice president for student affairs, was quoted as saying new fee,”Feb. 11),“We can’t survive and provide the services we in a previous article (“Rec center cuts the ribbon,”Feb. currently provide without this fee.” 23) in the Daily Wildcat.“When I look at this center, Maybe so.

Much ink has also been spilled on the“green”status of the expansion. The center received a Gold Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) rating from the U.S. Green Building Council, and only “one point away”from Platinum status (Rec expansion gets Green honors, Nov. 24, 2009) Fine. But unless it uses a negative amount of energy — if so, someone notify the physics department — it’s still an unnecessary expenditure of funding and energy. Administration apparatchiks have done their best to steer the focus of the Rec Center debate away from financial concerns. We have been assured that the facility is state-of-the-art, that the student population is overwhelmingly in favor of the expansion, that it’s super-green, and various other buzzwords. But the more important, fundamental questions go unanswered. No students really needed a state-of-the-art recreation center, certainly not as much as many of us need the money. And, despite student support, it was the wrong move to begin such an expensive project as the university struggles with an unprecedented budgetary crisis. Unfortunately, we’re stuck with it.

prenatal care immediately.” West also said it was important for students to know about the “Safe Baby” program which admits unwanted babies. The “Safe Baby” program will take babies up to 72 hours old, and no personal information is requested. “It’s really important because, often, girls have no idea what do,”West said. “Safe Baby” assistance is available by calling 872-7233 or by visiting Planned Parenthood and the Tucson Women’s Center are the only available pregnancy centers without religious affiliation. Both centers are located off main roads, offering more anonymity than other more noticeable centers. The Tucson Women’s Center, 5240 E. Knight Drive Suite 112, is Tucson’s only privately owned family planning facility, providing free pregnancy tests and ultrasounds. It also offers the consent form and reading required for an abortion, online. The form must be submitted at least 24 hours before the procedure, according to Arizona law. Because the form is available online, only one visit to the office is necessary. The center provides other forms online, as well as the emergency contraceptive pill, Plan B, which costs $40 plus shipping. The first Plan B tablet should be taken within 72 hours of intercourse. This means if you want Plan B within those 72 hours, you may want to spring for the FedEx shipping ($30), which takes two

days, or contact the center about next-day shipping. TheTucson Women’s Center offers both surgical and drug-induced abortions. The center charges $460 for a medical abortion, including a $20 rebate check at the end of your last visit. The $460 includes medical care, medications and birth control pills. For surgical abortions, the price depends on the length of time since conception but ranges from $515 to $1,200. The Tucson Women’s Center also provides information on contraceptives and can prescribe the birth control pill. The Tucson Women’s Center will also refer women seeking adoption. As the other pregnancy center not affiliated with any religion, Planned Parenthood offers walk-in services, online services and services by appointment. The Margaret Sanger Health Center, a Planned Parenthood branch in Tucson at 2255 N. Wyatt Drive, offers abortion services, birth control services, general sex education, emergency contraception, general health care, STD testing and treatment, pregnancy testing, adoption referrals and women’s and men’s health services. Men can take advantage of reproductive and sexual health checkups and exam treatment for jock itch. Walk-in services include emergency contraception, pregnancy testing and birth control refills. Online, patients can make appointments, fill out online medical forms and refill birth control. Other services must be made by appointment.

There are several religiously-affiliated pregnancy centers in Tucson. The New Life Pregnancy Center is part of the Arizona Baptist Children’s Services. It offers free pregnancy tests, counseling, parenting classes and proof of pregnancy for insurance purposes. They also offer information and referrals for adoption. The New Life Pregnancy Center does offer information about abortion and contraceptives but does not refer. “We are here to provide options. We have STD resources, abstinence resources,”said Melanie C. Martin, one of the center’s pregnancy counselors. “Our heart is for the women.” The center offers different forms of material assistance, such as gift bags for new moms, diapers, hygiene products, formula and clothing. Women can pick up gift bags a month before their due date. The center, located at 1779 N. Alvernon Way, is available to anyone regardless of religious orientation. The Women’s Pregnancy Center, 2290 E. Speedway Blvd, is a Christian organization that says it offers unconditional acceptance and assistance. When you log on to their Web site, you are immediately greeted by a video about the miracle of life. The site also includes videos such as“Marriage: Worth the Wait,” which promote abstinence. The banner of the site changes from worried women to more graphic pictures of fetal development. The Web site does offer information about birth control, listing both advantages and disadvantages, although the site promotes abstinence.

The Women’s Pregnancy Center offers free pregnancy tests, STD education, a 24-hour hotline, ultrasounds, a prenatal clinic, confidential counseling, postabortion counseling, material assistance, referrals for adoption and low-cost medical care referrals. The Reachout Pregnancy Center, located at 2648 N. Campbell Ave., is a Christian organization that offers Bible-based counseling and support. According to Reachout, it is “independent, non-political, nonsectarian and prepared to help you whether you are single or married, regardless of age, race or religion.” “We never turn anyone away,” said Angela Schneider, the executive director of Reachout Pregnancy Center. According to Schneider, Reachout’s brochure was developed by two UA students. They had a friend who had used Reachout in the past and appreciated the help and support they received. The brochure is available at Campus Health Service. The Reachout Pregnancy Center offers free pregnancy tests and sonograms, pre-natal counseling and guidance, adoption information and referrals, counseling with parents, boyfriends or husbands, referrals for medical and employment planning, material assistance and a postabortion counseling retreat. The retreat does cost money, but, according to Schneider, scholarships are available, and no one would be turned away because she couldn’t afford the retreat. Reachout does not refer for abortion or contraceptives.

outstanding teaching award. Upon earning his docorate at the UA in 1988, Fleming went to Munich, Germany, on a postdoctoral fellowship. During this time he became fluent in German and sang in German concert halls. “I could teach my Tier One (Natural Sciences) course in German because I also know the astronomy terms in German,”Fleming said. In 2000, Fleming won the Provost’s General Education Teaching Award. “I’m not Einstein, I’m not going to win (the) Nobel Prize in Physics,” Fleming said. “But I think I have a talent to explain scientific concepts in a way that people who aren’t studying science can understand.”

Fleming attempts to relate scientific topics at hand to every day life. “I always try to find analogies in everyday life that can somehow connect to the topic we’re studying, whether it’s sun spots on the sun or nuclear fusion reactions,” Fleming said.“I was an athlete in high school and on a soccer league in Germany, so I have some appreciation for student athletes.” To interact with students, Fleming also holds star parties at Saguaro National Park. CatTran has recently begun transporting students to the park for the event. “Astronomy inspires imagination,” Fleming said. “It’s a little easier to understand than other scientific topics, and it connects to everyone’s lives.”

Punch-drunk window A University of Arizona Police Department officer responded to the Kaibab-Huachuca Residence Hall on Friday at 12:19 a.m. in reference to criminal damage. When the officer arrived at the dorms, he met with a student who reported an unknown man punched out his room window and shattered it. The resident was bleeding from his face because of cuts he got from the glass after it shattered. He had cuts on his forehead, nose and lips. After Tucson Fire Department paramedics arrived to make sure the man was okay, the man gave a description of the man who punched out his window and told the officer he was with another man who was also a resident of Kaibab-Huachuca. The officer found the other man in his dorm room. The officer asked the man if he knew who punched the window.  The man said his friend, who is a resident at ManzanitaMohave Residence Hall, was the one who punched the window. He said the man ran away when he realized what he had done. The officer found the man in the restroom at ManzanitaMohave and interviewed him. The man admitted to breaking the window and said he was only joking around by tapping on the window, and when the residents closed the glass pane, he hit it with his hand causing it to shatter.  When speaking to the man, the officer could smell alcohol on his breath, and the man admitted to drinking three or four beers earlier in the night.  The man was arrested for criminal damage and minor in possession. 

Spoons and straw for meth and coke A UAPD officer pulled a car over for having a suspended license plate Feb. 20 at 11:15 p.m. at the intersection of Kino Parkway and Broadway Boulevard. The officer ran a records check of the woman and found that her driver’s license had been suspended. During an inventory check of the car, the officer found two spoons and a straw.  The woman admitted to using the spoons to burn meth, and the straw to snort cocaine. The spoons and the straw were submitted as evidence and sent to the Department of Public Safety for testing. The woman was placed under arrest for possession of drug paraphernalia, driving on a suspended license, no mandatory insurance and driving a motor vehicle with suspended plates.

Three beers at sunset, extreme DUI at dawn A UAPD officer noticed a white Kia Sephia swerving and making illegal lane changes on Euclid Avenue on Saturday at 7:25 a.m. When the car began to speed, the officer turned on his emergency lights to pull the car over. After several minutes the car did not respond to the lights or sirens. At Seventh Avenue, the car made an abrupt stop and pulled over into a parking lot on the northeast corner of Sixth Street and Seventh Avenue. The officer contacted the driver and noticed there were two men in the car.  When asked for his license and registration, the man stumbled through his wallet several times and kept repeating the car was not his. When speaking to the driver, the officer could detect some slurred speech and red watery eyes.  The man found his driver’s license and a records check showed the license was suspended.  The officer placed the man under arrest for driving with a suspended license, and when he asked for the man to get out of the car and walk to the patrol car, the man stumbled and walked very slowly. The officer asked if he had been drinking, because his breath smelled of alcohol, but the man said he had not. When the officer told the man he would like to do a few tests, the man said, “I do what you want.� During pretest questions for a field sobriety test, the only answer the man would give was, “Give me the test, I do what you want.� The field sobriety tests showed a presence of alcohol in his system, and the officer read the man’s Miranda Rights to him. The man told the officer he would answer any of his questions. The man stated he drank three Miller Light beers the previous night between sunset and midnight, and was on his way to Saint Mary’s Hospital for work.  At the UAPD main station, the man was given a breathalyzer test, which showed the man had a blood alcohol content of 0.17.  The man was arrested for DUI over 0.08 BAC and Extreme DUI over 0.15 BAC. He was also arrested for speeding. The car was impounded and the man was transported and booked into Pima County Jail.

Man can’t walk after ‘one beer’


An on-duty resident assistant of the Coronado Residence Hall called UAPD on Saturday around midnight asking for an officer to check on the welfare of a student. When the officer arrived at the dorm, the RA said she had seen a man having trouble walking and keeping his balance while two people escorted him to his room. The officer spoke with one of the residents of the room. The woman said the man had gone to the bathroom after she asked him to leave the room. He was identified as a UA student and resident of Coronado. When the officer was asking the man questions, he could see he had bloodshot eyes and slurred speech. The man told the officer, â&#x20AC;&#x153;I feel fine, I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t need any help.â&#x20AC;? After being read his rights, the man said he drank one beer at an off-campus party, but did not know where the house was. The man was arrested for minor in possession in body and was escorted to his dorm room.

SeaWorld whale kills trainer as crowd watches The Associated Press ORLANDO, Fla. – A SeaWorld killer whale snatched a trainer off a poolside platform in its jaws Wednesday and thrashed the woman around underwater, killing her in front of a horrified audience. It marked the third time the animal had been involved in a human death. Distraught audience members were hustled out of the stadium immediately, and the park was closed. Trainer Dawn Brancheau, 40, was one of the park’s most experienced. Her sister said Brancheau wouldn’t want anything done to the whale that killed her because she loved the animals like children. Brancheau was rubbing Tilikum after a noontime show when the 12,000-pound whale grabbed her and pulled her in, said Chuck Tompkins, head of animal training at all SeaWorld parks. It was not clear if she drowned or died from the thrashing. Because of his size and the previous deaths, trainers were not supposed to get into the water with Tilikum, and only about a dozen of the park’s 29 trainers worked with him. Brancheau had more experience with the 30-year-old whale than most. “We recognized he was different,” Tompkins said. He said no decision has

been made yet about what will happen to Tilikum, such as transfering him to another facility. A retired couple from Michigan told The Associated Press that there were some stragglers in the audience who had stayed to watch the animals and trainers. Eldon Skaggs, 72, saw Brancheau on a platform massaging the whale. He said the interaction appeared leisurely and informal. Skaggs said that the whale “pulled her under and started swimming around with her.” Skaggs said an alarm sounded and staff rushed the audience out of the stadium as workers scrambled around with nets. He heard that during an earlier show the whale was not responding to directions. Others who attended the earlier show said the whale was behaving like an ornery child. Wednesday’s attack was the second time in two months that an orca trainer was killed at a marine park. On Dec. 24, 29-yearold Alexis Martinez Hernandez fell from a whale and crushed his ribcage at Loro Parque on the Spanish island of Tenerife. Park officials said the whale, a 14-year-old named Keto, made an unusual move as the Julie Fletcher/Orlando Sentinel two practiced a trick in which the whale lifts Dawn Brancheau, a whale trainer at SeaWorld Adventure Park, shown performing on Dec. 30, 2005, was killed in an accident with a killer whale at the the trainer and leaps into the air.

The Associated Press

PHILADELPHIA – A Pennsylvania educator named in a webcam spying lawsuit says she never monitored students through webcams or authorized anyone else to do so. Harriton High School Vice Principal Lynn Matsko responded to last week’s lawsuit through a statement Wednesday. She did not take questions. She did not address a lawsuit’s accusation

that she talked to a student about“improper behavior” at home, citing images from his school-issued laptop’s camera. The student, Blake Robbins, says that the Lower Merion School District photographed him in his bedroom. District officials have said they remotely activated webcams to locate 42 missing laptops without notifying students. Robbins’ lawyers asked again Wednesday for all the photographs and screenshots the district obtained.

Student party prompts anti-racism campaign The Associated Press

Ladies from the Delta Delta Delta sorority performed a skit for a room full of spectators and a panel of judges as a part of Sigma Chi fraternity’s Derby Days on Wednesday. The event is one of a series that is held to assist a number of charitable causes.

SAN DIEGO — The University of California, San Diego has initiated a campus-wide campaign against racism in the wake of a student party that used a ghetto theme to mockingly commemorate Black History Month. A school Web site outlines the “Battle Hate” campaign that aims to ensure that all students feel “safe,

supported and respected.” A teach-in at the university Wednesday discussed the importance of mutual respect. The off-campus party on President’s Day outraged some of UCSD’s black students, who comprise only 2 percent of the student population. The party was condemned by the school and a fraternity. UCSD officials are investigating whether anyone can be disciplined.

Arizona seeking its old, improving self against conference-leading Cal By Kevin Zimmerman Arizona Daily Wildcat Getting back on the path to improvement — that’s the only choice for the Arizona men’s basketball team. The Wildcats started off 6-3 in the Pacific 10 Conference and at that point had taken down California to gain the conference lead. Now at 13-13 with a 7-7 conference record, Arizona travels to the Bay Area to again face the now-Pac-10leading Bears (18-9, 10-5) tonight at 7. As the season progressed, reality struck as the Wildcats stepped off the path of improvement. “We have four regular season games left, and we’re going to try to win each one of them,” said head coach Sean Miller. “But I think that the (Jan. 14) Oregon State game in particular hurt

’Cats eye winning season

Next four games key to above-.500 finish for W-hoops By Michael Fitzsimmons Arizona Daily Wildcat The Arizona women’s basketball team has the opportunity to accomplish something that has not been done in five years. It’s simple. Pending its play in the Pacific 10 Conference Tournament, if the Wildcats (13-12, 6-8 Pac-10) can split their next four games, they will finish the regular season above .500 for the first time since the 2004-05 season. This is easier said than done. Starting tonight at 7 in McKale Center, Arizona will play a red-hot California team that has won 10 of its last 12 games and four in a row. After this, it will continue to face a tough slate of games that stand in the way of a winning season. In her second year as head coach, Niya Butts is aware of the importance in breaking the losing season streak but was not ready for her team to look past Cal. “When you measure how you’re doing as a team and where you are as a program, certainly (a winning season) would be a good accomplishment for us considering that hasn’t happened for a while,” Butts said.“But at the same time, we’re still looking at that day-by-day, gameby-game approach.” W-HOOPS, page 10

We’ve been able to stay with that. “When you ask about competitive character, mental toughness, physical toughness,” he added, “that’s something we have a long way to go to be in a good category.” That weakness has been evident on defense. The Wildcats haven’t been able to make key stops during crunch time. “Our room for error is razor thin,” Miller said. “Some of the improvement I’d hoped to have seen, (I) didn’t experience it, especially on defense on the last two games.”

The leader of the Pac must take the heat. First-place California men’s basketball coach Mike Montgomery fielded questions Tuesday in a teleconference that aired the Pacific 10 Conference’s frustrations from the entire season. They ask what it’s like to be ranked a preseason top-15 team. The Golden Bears are barely a bubble team for an at-large bid to the NCAA Tournament if they win out. “I don’t know if that had anything to do with how we played,” Montgomery said. “We’re not paying attention to that.” They ask what’s different for first-place Cal about preparing for Saturday’s matchup against secondplace ASU. The conference is so fragile at the top. “That game is not a factor for either of us if we struggle on Thursday,” Montgomery said. They asked if a conference title meant the same in a season without any ranked teams. If the Bears win out, they’ll have the worst-ever overall record for a Pac-10 title team. “Every question you ever ask anymore starts with a negative, so I don’t know how to answer those questions mostly,” Montgomery said. As the conference’s brutal year takes a homebound stretch — and “coach speak” dissolves into emotional responses — the Bears have a one-game lead in the loss column against ASU. Despite their drop from national recognition, which reflects the rest

On the comeback trail Goldman returns to tennis courts after four-month injury layoff By Nathan Comerford Arizona Daily Wildcat Arizona men’s tennis junior Jay Goldman was moving along one of the best trails of his collegiate career during spring 2009. He compiled a 13-8 overall record in the No. 1 singles position for the Wildcats, including four victories against ranked opponents. The Intercollegiate Tennis Association (ITA) took note of his accomplishments and in fall 2009 had Goldman as the No. 36-ranked singles player in the country during preseason. But against Fresno State University at the Pepperdine Fall Classic, a tournament hosted in Malibu, Calif., Goldman began noticing discomfort in his right wrist. “I ended up winning (the match), but I felt the pain in my wrist just a tiny bit, but then the next day, I couldn’t come back and couldn’t play,” Goldman said. “The pain was too much.” The pain came from inflamed tendonitis in Goldman’s wrist. Ironically, Goldman is a lefty and the only thing he does with his right wrist is hit backhands. “I don’t have that same wear (on the right) as I have on the left so that was a bit frustrating,” he said. After the Pepperdine Fall Classic, Goldman earned a nod to play in the ITA All-American Tournament. He rested his wrist in the weeks leading up to the event to try to get back in the swing of things. At the D’Novo ITA All-American in Tulsa, Okla., tournament, he played through the pain in the first round and won his match in three sets. Up next was University of Virginia junior, Sanam Singh, who

rehabilitation with athletic trainer Adam Garmon, who Goldman said has been an “instrumental part in orchestrating the best treatment” for him. “X-Rays, MRI’s — it was in question whether there was a bit of tearing, but there was really no structural damage,” Goldman said

Can Arizona get some ice?


Bruised ’Cats prove gymnastics both mentally and physically demanding By Kevin Nadakal Arizona Daily Wildcat The Arizona gymnastics team is filled with battered and weary bodies, but that’s not stopping the Wildcats on thier quest to reach their 24th consecutive postseason berth. Broken bones, torn muscles, sprains, spasms and bruises are usually terms associated with contact sports, but these injuries are linked to gymnastics as well. “It’s a brutal, brutal sport,” said head coach Bill Ryden. “It’s like a contact sport with inanimate objects. The injuries mount up over the years, so you get beat on starting at 6 years old.” If you look at the No. 21 Gymcats (2-5) you can see what Ryden is talking about. Arizona is sprawled around the practice facility, ignoring their bodies’ message to stop their rigorous workout. “It’s a lot of joint-specific stuff versus acute muscle, just because of all the compression loading,” said athletic trainer Doug Contaoi.“Just the joint stresses on their body.” “Overuse injuries, back injuries are huge,” Ryden added. “All the joints — shoulder, knees, ankles. You can imagine the pressure that the knees and ankles are constantly feeling.” As a performance sport that’s all about grace, gymnastics is rarely brought up when discussing physically-demanding sports. While the gymnasts are performing, they are trying to make their routine look easy without stumbling or falling. “I think when people watch gymnastics, the only thing that they see is us competing,” said sophomore Deanna Graham.“They don’t realize that we are in the gym training four hours, five days a week along with weights. All they see is one routine, and we are done.” Contaoi said, the sport takes such a toll on their bodies that where in most sports, collegiate athletes are about to peak, college gymnasts are in the latter half of their career. Most of the girls started doing club

gymnastics around 6 or 7 years of age, so their bodies have been feeling the pain for years. Ryden said gymnasts have to work on their craft year round in order to stay competitive. There is no offseason for a gymnast, as she can lose her skills rapidly. “I think the only day a gymnast doesn’t feel pain is the first day she started gymnastics,” said assistant coach John Court

W-HOOPS continued from page 8

UA eyes first winning season since 2004-05

The Golden Bears (16-10, 10-5) run their offense through senior guard Alexis Gray-Lawson who is the conference’s second-leading scorer. She torched the Wildcats for 39 points the last time the two teams played in a 73-53 Cal win at Berkeley. Her outburst was a focal point in practice this week for Arizona as the Wildcats simulated ways to prevent her from a repeat performance. “To have a kid hang 39 points on us last time, that is unacceptable,” said assistant coach Sue Darling. “I think we are going to do a much better job guarding her this time.” After a tough loss to ASU on Sunday, the Wildcats are back in the comforts of McKale Center, where they have defended their home court this season with an 8-4 record. The Wildcats’ fan base has grown with every win, and UA will need the energy of a home crowd against a likely NCAA Tournament-bound Cal team. “I certainly think our crowd has been pretty good this year, and we wouldn’t have won some of the games at home if we hadn’t had them behind us,” Butts said. McKale Center was home to Arizona’s victory against Oregon on Jan. 16 — its only win against a team that sits higher in the Pac-10 standings than it does.

SWIM BRIEF W-swim and dive begins Pac-10 Championships

Alan WalshArizona Daily Wildcat

Arizona women’s basketball head coach Niya Butts directs her players during a victory against Washington State on Feb. 4 in McKale Center. The Wildcats host Cal tonight at 7.

Echoing Butts’ “one game at a time” approach, Darling talked about Arizona’s struggles with tougher competition and noted how a win tonight against the third-ranked team in the Pac-10 would be a step

forward for the Wildcats. “We are very good at beating teams who are below us in the standings, and we’ve only beaten one team above us,” Darling said. “For me, that’s our next step: to beat somebody above us

in the standings.” Tonight marks one of only two remaining home games for Arizona, and one more win in McKale Center would solidify the program’s progress in front of its fans.


The Arizona women’s swim and dive team got off to a great start in its pursuit of another Pacific 10 Conference Championship Wednesday, winning the opening 200-yard medley relay with a time of 1:37.00. The team, composed of seniors Ana Agy, Annie Chandler and Justine Schluntz along with junior Emma Darlington who finished two seconds ahead of No. 1-ranked Stanford. The victory gave the UA an early firstplace tie with USC at 116 points. Stanford is close behind with 112 points and California is in fourth with 108 points. “Tonight was a great start,” Agy said. “Everyone swam really well on the relays.” The championships featured only two events on the first day of competition — the 200y medley relay and the 800y free relay — and the Wildcats finished in fourth place in the 800y freestyle relay with a time of 7:07.60. “It will just be our job to keep this energy going,” Agy said, “and to keep having fun.” The women’s 1-meter and men’s 3-meter diving events will get things started tonight. UA junior diver Ben Grado will be a favorite to win the 3-meter event. He has won the event three of the last four times he has competed. — Derek Lawrence

ANALYSIS continued from page 8

Golden Bears gunning for title

of the conference, the Bears and Wildcats have one last primetime game on ESPN tonight at 7. “I look at them as the most experienced team in our league, very organized, very well-coached in their approach,”Arizona head coach Sean Miller said. “To me, nationally, they’re one of the best offensive teams in college basketball.” According to’s “Bracketology,” Cal is projected to be a No. 10 seed with an automatic bid from winning the conference tournament. And that’s it. That’s the Pac-10’s lone representative. Ten other conferences have multiple bids, including the Colonial Conference. The Bears’ four nonconference road losses came against top-10 teams, including Kansas, Syracuse and Ohio State. A sweep this weekend would put California in prime position to outright win its first Pac-10 title in 50 years. “We’re in the best position we’ve probably been in for a while,” Montgomery said. “I still think 18 games against the same opponents is the best measure you can possibly have in terms of competitive environment.” The headline on Cal’s athletics Web site reads: “We need every seat in Haas Pavillion to be full for these two games.”The players don’t care if this league title comes in one of the worst seasons. “It’s everything,” senior forward Jamal Boykin told Bay Area media Tuesday. “It’s history. You’d come back to school 10, 20 years from now and you’d be the team, the first one

Randle looks to join club

continued from page 8

Could Jerome Randle be No. 10? That is, perimeter players to score 24 points or more against the Wildcats this season. Randle only scored 15 points in the Bears’ 76-72 loss in Tucson earlier this season. He averages 19.2 points per game this season. “He’s a good player. He’s been here for four years,” said freshman guard Momo Jones. “He’s been through the bumps in the road, he’s been through the battles. He’s a good guard.” Added Miller: “Jerome Randle, you look at the career that he’s had at Cal, I believe he has the chance to be the all-time leading scorer … just from an offensive perspective he makes their team so difficult to defend. He’s just such a great player.” UA guards have given up as many as 49 points to a single player (BYU’s Jimmer Fredette in a McKale Center record) this season, including Pac-10 matchups against Quincy Pondexter (30 points) Ty Abbott (28) Theo Robertson (27) and Jeremy Green (25). “In our first game, Northern Arizona, they had a player go for 30,” Miller said. “We’ve worked hard to get better. We’re a man-toman defensive team, and part of the deal is you have to work and get through games, make it so that Michael Ignatov/Arizona Daily Wildcat someone like Ty Abbott, who runs Freshman guard Momo Jones goes up for a left-handed layup during a 76-72 victory against Cal off screens, doesn’t have that room, on Jan. 31 in McKale Center. The Wildcats have the chance to snap out of their recent skid when they take on Cal tonight in Berkeley at 7. just can’t get shots.”

On the offensive side of things, Miller hasn’t been disappointed with his team’s play despite its inability to get out in transition for easy opportunities. For the most part, the Wildcats have gotten to the free-throw line against a number of zone defenses they’ve faced in the past two weeks and have kept games close. Looking toward the Cal game and Saturday’s 5 p.m. game in Palo Alto, Calif., against the Stanford Cardinal, Arizona will be matched against more man-toman oriented teams. But that doesn’t leave room for optimism. Jones said he thinks man-to-man teams will throw in zones to keep Arizona out of rhythm. “That’s just how I feel,” Jones said. “I think we’ll do our regular practice plan but at the end of the day if a team does man on us, and if it just so happens that we play the way we regularly play, I think they’ll fall back into a zone. “It’ll be on us to really cope mentally to really come together as a team to go, ‘We’re not going to let this beat us again.’” Optimism still runs through Arizona, especially with a glimmer of hope remaining to make the NCAA Tournament. The Wildcats would need to sweep through the conference at the Pac-10 Tournament in Los Angeles. To do that, they’ll need to gain traction and build momentum through the final four regular season games. “One of the things that I’ve really pointed to and really still do,” Miller said, “is there’s not a team that has a better upside or opportunity in the month of February than Arizona.”

Berkowitz: ‘It adds another guy that comes up clutch for us’

Jan. 24, but he soon realized that wasn’t going to be the case. Despite the setback, Goldman said watching his teammates over the past month and seeing their success made him even more determined to get back on the courts. “It just gave me more motivation to (speed up) the recovery as best I could and really spend as much time as I could to rehabilitate and get myself back out there,” he said. “Playing with some great teammates

and seeing them fight has gotten me back into it.” He used new strength and flexibility exercises to strengthen the wrist and also maintain its elasticity in preparation for his return. After four months of minimal interaction with his tennis racket, Goldman made his return to the team last Friday at the No. 1 singles position at LaNelle Robson Tennis Center. “It adds another guy that comes up clutch for us,” said men’s head

coach Tad Berkowitz. “We have a good number of guys that have that ability and right now it gives us confidence. Jay, last year, won some huge matches for us in both the (Pacific 10 Conference) and NCAA, so that gives the guys an extra jolt.” Over the weekend, Goldman split his singles matches, losing an “uncomfortable” match 6-4, 7-5 on Friday to Brigham Young University’s Thomas Shubert, who is ranked

No. 98 by the ITA. On Sunday he defeated No. 99 Lucas Viel from the University of South Alabama 3-6, 6-4, 6-4. Goldman says that it was just the first step to regaining his confidence. “I’m just trying to get as many matches in, more confidence, more practice time, and my skill set should pick up quite a bit,” he said. For now, Goldman is back on the trail. Despite the unexpected turns he had to take and the new hills he

has to climb, the destination is the same: Help the team be successful. Goldman said his individual goal is to earn an invitation to play singles in the NCAA Tournament, but he admits it will be an uphill battle for an individual bid because of his lost playing time. “It’s been itching at him for a while and it’s been a frustrating injury for him,” Berkowitz said. “I’m just happy for him how he can get back doing what he loves to do.”
