New degree caters to military men By Jazmine Woodberry ARIZONA DAILY WILDCAT

A year in the making, a new degree program in meteorology at UA South caters to men enlisted in the Air Force through flexible class offerings and online availability.

Based on the education provided by the associate’s degree through the Community College of the Air Force, administrators worked a full year to open the program, which started a week after UA’s spring registration closed in January. “It was motivated by the needs of the

Air Force personnel at Davis-Monthan (Air Force Base),” said Yolande Serra, UA research associate professor of atmospheric sciences. “Eric Betterton, our department head, saw there’s a gap in their education that the UA could help with.” The degree offers theoretical backing

to much of the practical application learned through the military study but will soon be available to any student with an associate’s degree in meteorology and later to environmental and base sciences as well.

Edee Burke, a special education graduate student, and her dog Tatunka participate in the event raising money for victims of the earthquake in Chile by putting a sign on Tatunka that says “Pet the Puppy, Support the Restoration of Chile” on the UA Mall Thursday.

Graduate College rallied in support of Chilean students’ families after quake By Jonathan Prince ARIZONA DAILY WILDCAT Chilean students from the UA graduate college raised money Thursday for victims of last month’s devastating earthquake in Chile. The event was held in front of

Canyon Café from noon to 3 p.m. There was music and a picture slide show. The proceeds from the fundraiser will be donated to the southern town of Concepción, Chile, the epicenter of the earthquake. On Feb. 27, Chile was declared a “state

of catastrophe,” by former Chilean President Michelle Bachelet. The 8.8–magnitude quake that struck the country was the fifth largest quake in the world since 1990. Approximately 1.5 million people have suffered from the earthquake’s activity.

“We want to help destroyed villages, schools and support the smaller areas of Chile,” said Maria Paz Gomez, a philosophy doctoral candidate and organizer of the fundraiser. CHILE, page 3

PSU concert to ‘Rock for Hunger’ By Emily Moore ARIZONA DAILY WILDCAT The second annual Rock for Hunger event — a free concert featuring five bands, a volleyball tournament, prize drawings, the empty bowl project and free stuff — will be held tonight at the Park Student Union. Featured bands will include We Shot the Moon, The Half-way Trick, My Girl Friday, It’s Like Love and Hello Hollywood . “All these bands are up and coming, so they may not necessarily be bands people have heard of before,”said Jessica Berger, coordinator for the University Activities Board’s Friday Night Live. “But they’re still just as good, and they may be popular later on.” Sponsored by the University Activities Board, KAMP Student Radio and the Residence Hall Association, the event was started last year as a means to get more people to PSU because “there wasn’t much going on there,” Berger said. The University Activities Board’s


Friday Night Live series provides one large-scale event at the PSU per month. It was responsible for this year’s Think Pink Fashion Show, a casino night event, a swing-dancing event, among others. The Rock for Hunger festivities aim to give students on campus something fun to do while also raising funds and awareness for the Tucson Community Food Bank and the local homeless population. About 100 people showed up to last year’s event. “We’re definitely expecting a whole lot more people this year — hopefully 500 people at least,” Berger said. Rock for Hunger starts at 5 p.m. at PSU and lasts until 10:30 p.m. People who plan on attending the free event are encouraged to donate a few dollars or non-perishable food items. “I think it would be great for people to come out and support Tucson Community Food Bank, learn a little bit about what they do, while also having a good time,” Berger said.

Members of the University Activities Board placed hundreds of plastic spoons in the grass south of the Park Student Union in recognition of the many homeless and hungry residents of Tucson. The spoons are meant to announce the Rock for Hunger event, a concert to raise food, money and awareness for the homeless, to be hosted by KAMP today.

According to a recent study by, you get what you pay for. The study found that UA graduates, who pay the highest tuition out of the three state universities, had a higher starting salary. Graduates made about $47,000 on average in 2009 and would make about $87,000 on average later in their careers. According to Al Lee, Director of Quantitative Analysis for PayScale. com,“ is the leading online provider of employee compensation data in the world.” He added that the site is “the world’s largest database of individual compensation profiles (with) over 18.5 million unique user profiles.” Susan Miller, senior coordinator for marketing and special events in career services at the UA said it is hard to get a good estimate of starting salaries for students. “We have always been challenged to get the starting salary data from students once they graduate. Grads are under no obligation to give us the data, and, though we do ask for it, a small percentage responds,” Miller said. Kitty McGrath, executive director of ASU Career Services mirrored that sentiment. “I have no reason to doubt that the salary data that was reported in PayScale’s survey reflected the information that they received … for the sake of argument, let’s assume that they didn’t fudge the numbers. The real question is whether PayScale’s response rate was high enough to be considered truly representative,” she said. McGarth says ASU has been able to collect information from about 35 to 40 percent of their graduates. “Would that be high enough to do cross-institutional comparison with a degree of confidence? Probably not. Trying to obtain data ‘later in their career’ is even more difficult. Response rates plummet even several months after graduation,” she said. To determine students’ starting salaries, McGarth says ASU surveys its graduates prior to graduation and asks them if they have accepted a position and what their salary will be. Lee said that, for PayScale’s survey, there were thousands of respondents for large schools like the UA and ASU. Graduates from ASU had a starting salary of $46,000 on average and were making $83,000 on average later in their careers, according to the study. Northern Arizona University graduates had an average starting salary of $42,000 and were making an average of $72,000 later in their careers. Sonia Gonzales, senior career and academic advisor for NAU, had no comment for the Arizona Daily SALARIES, page 3

Nutritional sciences senior Tell me about your four-wheeling experience. This was back in northern California. We were on a trail that was designated impassable and wet, and it had just rained. Being who we were back in high school, we were like,“We’re fine…” (Laughs.) What year was this? This was 2003, my senior year. So we basically slide off what looked like a relatively flat trail, but it was winding around a mountainside, and got seriously stuck and almost ended up tumbling down the hill, rolling sideways. So we hike down and we find these drunks sitting in their Jeeps around a campfire. And we’re like,“Can you help us, tow us out?” So they’re like “OK.” They ended up using both the Jeeps, winching from the front and the back at the same time to pull my Jeep up onto the trail. And then they wanted money. Wait, so they’re drunk and they want money for helping you out? Yeah! We thought it was a good faith thing. “All right, so we’ll buy you some food” or something. So we get down ino town. And he wants liquor. I’m like 17. I don’t know how this worked, but we go into the liquor store. And it’s this 50- or 60-year-old grizzly, overweight drunk that sits around campfires in his Jeep. He asks me to buy him two cases of Smirnoff Ice. Uh, OK. I guess that’s the off-roading choice of liquor. I don’t know. We were expecting like Bud or, you know, a regular beer or maybe some hard liquor. Or Pabst Blue Ribbon or something. Yeah, but no, he wants Smirnoff Ice — the girliest drink ever. (Laughs.) And somehow the person at the liquor store sold it to me, because it was for me for him. So they’re like, “Yeah, it’s OK. You’re related?” Yeah, it was like, it’s for him but I’m paying for it? I don’t think it was legal, and I don’t think the town cares. That’s probably not legal and they probably see that more than you think. And then after that — it gets better — my friends and I are all pissed off because we were stuck for hours. We’re at the McDonald’s — I normally don’t eat fast food, but it was the only thing open — and this Britney Spears video had just come out and it was on the screen in the McDonald’s. The obese alcoholic man is right behind us, like, uncomfortably close in our bubble. And he’s like (in a deep voice),“So you guys like that new Britney Spears video?”We were just thoroughly creeped out. Was he breathing heavily on your necks when he said this? Yeah, exactly. Like straight out of a movie. Get away from me, dude! Did you hear banjos twanging in the background? Yeah, “Deliverance”-style. (Laughs.) Did it end there? Yeah. We got our food to go. —Steven Kwan

Fugitive found running, chapel waives extradition HELENA, Mont. — Frank Dryman first escaped hanging, then he just escaped. He wasn’t found for four decades until he was discovered running a wedding chapel some 1,300 miles south of the Montana town where he killed a man who had offered him a ride in a blizzard. Dryman, 78, was awaiting extradition proceedings Thursday for skipping out of Montana 38 years ago while on parole for the

1951 killing of Clarence Pellett, who had picked up Dryman as a 19-year-old drifter caught in the snow outside the northern Montana town of Shelby. Dryman was arrested Tuesday after the victim’s grandson hired an investigator who tracked the fugitive to the Cactus Rose Wedding Chapel, the Arizona City, Ariz., notary and chapel business where he went by the name Victor Houston.

Dryman had blended into local society and even cultivated friendships with previous county sheriffs, Pinal County Sheriff Paul Babeu said. “I think this sends a message to other fugitives that they are never off the radar screen,” said Montana Department of Corrections spokesman Bob Anez. “It’s imperative that individuals be held accountable for their actions.” —The Associated Press

W.Va. city focus of TV chef show on healthy eating

HUNTINGTON, W.Va. ­— Linda Fillinger had a new experience recently: She made pancakes without reaching for a box of prepared mix. “I never made it with actual flour before,” the Barboursville resident said after finishing a weekly cooking lesson at Huntington’s Kitchen. Jamie Oliver The newly established downtown facility is the most visible sign of the changes here since a celebrity chef came to what his American TV network calls the nation’s unhealthiest city. “Jamie Oliver’s Food Revolution,” a reality series about the British chef’s effort last fall to teach this Ohio River town about healthy eating, has its official premiere Friday. Even before the evangelist for fresh ingredients and unprocessed foods set foot in town, residents were wary of being subjected to a gawk-and-go treatment that would unfairly single them out in a country where bulging waistlines and junk food diets are common from New York to California. Instead of closing their eyes and wishing Oliver would go away, though, many people here eventually warmed to the chef, and have started efforts to improve the health of locals residents. “This isn’t just a TV show and it’s not just a onetime thing,” said Doug Sheils, spokesman for CabellHuntington Hospital, which was an early supporter of efforts to change the area’s health problems. Sheils was an early and vocal skeptic of Oliver’s effort, and is still seething about a 2008 Associated Press story that used federal Centers for Disease Control and Prevention data to dub the fivecounty Huntington metropolitan area the country’s unhealthiest. The story pointed out that based on CDC statistics, nearly half the adults in the metropolitan area were obese and that the area led in a half-dozen other illness measures, too, including heart disease and diabetes. But after meeting Oliver, Sheils became convinced of the Cockney chef’s good will, and the hospital has stepped forward with significant donations to two major efforts.

Alumna breaks gender barrier By Bethany Barnes Arizona Daily Wildcat

UA alumna and Brigadier General N. Lee S. Price became the first female to run a program executive office. Price said her new position as program executive officer means she will be working to provide software applications, computers and communications for the Army. “We all know how to operate our cell phones in the urban environment in which we live, but trying to provide that equivalent on the battlefield is a highly technical, intricate challenge,” Price said. Price earned her master’s degree in management information systems at the UA. “Attending the University of Arizona was a wonderful experience with a world-class faculty and highly intellectual and energetic students,” Price said. “The curriculum focused on group projects, which were a perfect fit for me since every soldier is first and foremost a team member.” After being in the Army for 12 years, Price got a UA master’s degree

free of charge. “I was an early geek, having operated as a computer operator back in the late ‘70s. The Army needed systems engineers and especially those who understood computers,” she said. Price found inspiration through her instructors at the UA. Price said her master’s advisor Doug Vogel, regularly spent time with her to help her correlate her coursework with relevant military projects. Price was also inspired by Eller College of Management professor Sudha Ram. “Who can miss her energy when she walks into the room? She provided me with a strong understanding of basic data management which I still use today,” Price said. Ram was pleased to learn of Price’s achievement. Ram said Price took several of her classes, and she always enjoyed interacting with Price. “I recall her as a bright and articulate young woman with a great work ethic,” Ram said. “I am so pleased to hear she is doing well. I am very proud of her.” Price said the education she received at UA has given her the

‘They’ve lost everything’

Daniela Johannes, a Spanish and Portuguese graduate assistant and event organizer, has been affected directly. A gas pipe exploded just inches from her family’s house in Santiago, Chile. “It’s hard to hear about what happened to my country, my family,” Johannes said. “They’ve lost everything.” Ivan Salinas, a science education graduate student and one of the 20 fundraiser organizers, said, “We don’t have a goal for our fundraiser; any donation helps.” Not many students were present at the fundraiser event; however, organizers talked to many students passing by, asking them for donations.

Samantha Sanders, a prejournalism freshman, was among those who donated. “I enjoy helping out others and wanted to help the people of Chile,” she said. The money donated will help buy water, clothes and shelter for the victims of the earthquake. Although the Chilean graduate students don’t have an organization to donate to yet, they say all proceeds will go to relief efforts in Chile.

ASU discredits ‘unreliable’ study

Wildcat about starting salaries for graduates. Lee cited the disparity in average starting incomes as a result of several factors. “Generally, the largest influences on pay is the mix of majors and the selectivity of the school,” Lee said. “For example, schools with large education programs tend to have lower earning alumni than universities with large engineering programs.” An average offer for a UA grad is $41,000, according to a 2008 figure from UA Career Services. The National Association of Colleges and Employers Salary Survey for fall 2008 showed that the national average salary offer for college grads was $43,334. McGarth said the mix of academic majors at an institution dramatically affects the starting salaries and makes a comparison “completely unreliable.” There is no average that can be set in stone, but attending college is


better than not. “Generally, the rate of investment in terms of future salary for instate students at public universities is good; e.g., much better than investing the same amount of money (including forgone income during school) in the stock market,” Lee said. PayScale’s 2010 study comes out in July.

Promotion makes program appealing

“(Students) will get a stronger theoretical basis and broader topics — more than just weather forecasting,” Serra said. The theory-based program gives students further work in global weather modeling, data analysis and building the math and physics skills needed to further enhance the synoptic hands-on training offered through their previous degree. With one student currently enrolled and 20 more looking to join the program in June, the degree continually gains steam with high interest from many enlisted men at Davis-Monthan. “If folks would like to go to school, but they didn’t have the availability due to work schedules or location, this is a great option,” said Capt. Brian Yates, training flight commander for the 25th flight squadron at Davis-Monthan. “There’s tons of interest already.” Receiving positive feedback from the

enrolled member of their squadron, Yates has planned a field trip for 20 other interested members of his 140-member squadron to visit the UA campus and learn more about what the degree has to offer. “For the enlisted, if they don’t have a degree, and they are looking for one, it’s good across the board,” he said. “Plus, when or if they ever get out of the military, UA has one of the top meteorology programs, so it’s really good.” The degree requires an existing associate’s degree in meteorological sciences, such as the one offered by the Air Force’s community college. Philip King, the education officer for Davis-Monthan Air Force Base, noted that advanced degrees are always helpful in and outside of the military. “The more education they get, the more likely they are to get promoted,”

said King. Although all in the weather squadron are automatically enrolled in the 64-credit associate’s degree program through the military, the option of continuing their education retains appeal. Complete online availability will allow someone, wherever they are in the world, to complete their bachelor’s of science in meteorology. The degree is especially enticing since not many degrees cater to military outreach locally and abroad, and the meteorology degree adds a lot to the atmospheric sciences, Serra said. “This is the first kind of degree like this that is an outreach to the military here and hopefully will eventually be an outreach to the entire Air Force,” Serra said. “Once that happens, there are other Air Force personnel will want to complete their degree, and then they can do that for the UA.”

Congress approves health care; lawmakers threatened The Associated Press WASHINGTON — Capping an epic struggle, congressional Democrats put the final touches Thursday to historic legislation enshrining health care as the right of every citizen. Republicans vowed to campaign for repeal in the fall election season, drawing a quick retort from President Barack Obama: “I welcome that fight.” The Senate voted 56-43 for legislation making changes, including better benefits for seniors and lowincome and middle-class families, to the bill the president signed into law with a flourish at the White House on Tuesday. The House added its approval a few hours later, 220-207, clearing the way for Obama’s signature on the second of two bills that marked the culmination of what the president called “a year of debate and a century of trying” to ensure coverage for nearly all in a nation where millions

lack it. Obama is expected to sign the legislation early next week. The two bills also aim to crack down on insurance industry abuses and to reduce federal deficits by an estimated $143 billion over a decade. Most Americans would be required to buy insurance for the first time, and face penalties if they refused. The second of the two bills also presented Obama with another victory, stripping banks and other private lenders of their ability to originate student loans in favor of a system of direct government lending. More than 10 lawmakers in the House said they had received threats or worse as a consequence of the health care debate, most of them Democrats who voted in favor of the legislation. There were reports of bricks through windows, a cut propane line to a grill and numerous obscene and threatening phone calls and faxes. An undisclosed number of lawmakers were under increased

police protection. Speaker Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., and the GOP leader, Rep. John Boehner of Ohio, both denounced the threats and incidents of violence. But Democrats said Republicans had been too slow to respond, drawing an outraged response in return. “By ratcheting up the rhetoric, some will only inflame these situations to dangerous levels,” said Republican Whip Eric Cantor of Virginia. “Enough is enough. It has to stop.” “Repeal and replace” was the new slogan for Republicans as they pivoted away from earlier attempts to kill the health care legislation. Officials said it was meant to appeal to tea party activists — who staged an occasionally unruly demonstration outside the Capitol over the weekend — as well as to independent voters eager for changes in the health care system but fearful the Democrats went too far. “Republicans fought on behalf of

the American people this week and will continue to fight until this bill is repealed and replaced with common sense ideas that solve our problems without dismantling the health care system we have and without burying the American dream under a mountain of debt,” said Senate Republican leader Mitch McConnell of Kentucky. Republicans circulated polls showing public backing for the overhaul at no better than 40 percent, despite months of Democratic efforts to rally support. Attacking the bill as a government takeover of health care paid for in higher taxes and Medicare cuts, they taunted House Democrats who voted for it, saying those lawmakers had cleared the way for their own defeat this fall. Democrats said any unease was the result of months of Republican distractions — as far back as last summer’s debunked charges of “death panels” — and predicted the public would warm to the new law

once its first benefits take effect. Senate passage of the followup measure was nearly along party lines. Democratic Sens. Blanche Lincoln and Mark Pryor of Arkansas and Ben Nelson of Nebraska joined 39 Republicans in opposing the legislation. Republican Johnny Isakson of Georgia, who is hospitalized, did not vote. The House vote followed the same pattern, with 32 Democrats joining 175 Republicans in opposition. Under a revised strategy, the House agreed to approve a Senate-passed bill despite numerous objections, on the condition that both houses would follow quickly with a fix-it measure. The one finally brought to a vote on Thursday added more than $20 billion to subsidies for lowerand middle-income individuals and families who will be required to purchase insurance and about $8 billion over a decade for states that already provide more generous than average Medicaid benefits.

To claim that abortion is murder is a cheap excuse for the real issue; the issue comprises the few who think themselves entitled to make decisions for the masses and believing they have the right to take away our right to choose. Which I might add is an inherently human right. Let’s leave the controversial issues where they belong … in our own homes where they bother no one. — Zachary Weinstein Pre-physiology freshman

Domestic terrorists — not in the kitchen

There is no question that the healthcare debate has been one of the most critical debates in our nation’s history. Many of us, including myself, have very strong opinions on this issue and have been vocal about it throughout the past year. For those watching the news, it seems that some people are being a little too vocal. The breaking of windows at the office of Congresswoman Gabby Giffords was reprehensible and unforgivable. Same goes for the people who attacked offices in New York and other states. The person responsible for cutting the gas-line of Virginia Congressman Tom Perriello’s brother is just another frightening example. Given my political leanings, at first I was reserved to believe these were Tea Party attacks against liberal members of Congress. However, today I was proven wrong, as now House Minority Whip Eric Cantor has also been the target of violence. His office in Virginia was shot at. I hope whoever shot at his office is brought to justice too! There is only one word to describe these attacks: TERRORISM. Those who seek violence against elected officials are committing terrorist attacks against the United States. If we are going to try Al Qaeda as enemy combatants, we must apply the same standard to those attacking members of Congress. These are trying times. We have an economy slowly recovering from the

edge of disaster. We have a President who has been the target of countless threats and death jokes. It’s disgusting! As a university, we should be doing more as people from all political viewpoints to wholly reject threats against our elected leaders. Like it or not, they represent all of us including those who didn’t vote for them. Domestic terrorists are just as much a threat to this country as international terrorists. — Joel Shooster Public administration graduate student

Comments from On ‘ASUA denies PIRG funding,’ March 24

What the Senate actually denied with their vote was a chance for the student body to voice its opinion on whether to assess ourselves a fee to fund this worthwhile program. In its short tenure on Arizona’s campus — supported by staff funded by a grant from PIRG chapters at other schools, which runs out this year — Arizona PIRG has registered students to vote, turned students out to public meetings and passed state-wide policy and hosted forums on images of sustainability on the campus. With continued funding, the program could grow to be as highimpact as the students in California whose multi-city press conference tour was cited by Governor Schwarzenegger as being influential in his decision on high-speed rail. I’m disappointed in the ASUA Senate for denying students a chance to vote on this, especially after having prevented PIRG from getting on the general election ballot by providing mistaken information about requirements.

If “women … are fully capable of being successful and happy people despite their free finger,” then why are people even bothering to study this? Who cares if someone chooses to remain single? If other people have an issue with it, then it’s their problem. If the singletons have an issue being left out or feeling awkward at wedding bouquet tosses, then maybe they’re not so happy after all? — Christopher

Google avoids assisted tyranny With the recent developments of Google’s challenge against censorship by the Chinese government, it was about time someone stood up for human rights. Google’s decision to uncensor its search engine in China was a bold, ethical move. According to The NewYork Times, in addition to its refusal to censor information in China, Google told a congressional panel that the United States should draft trade agreements that force China to pledge to keep Web sites uncensored. The reason for that was the fact that the Chinese government’s Internet filtering hinders international trade. In addition to any government-backed efforts to level the economic playing field, we support other corporations: namely Microsoft and Yahoo, following in Google’s footsteps. After all, any company that bans information according to a communist directive is simply an accomplice to tyranny. Even with Google’s decision, the company stands to lose only 1 or 2 percent of its revenue. Soon after Google’s move to cease censorship, Bill Gates told ABC News,“You’ve got to decide: Do you want to obey the laws of the countries you are in, or not? If not, you may not end up doing business there.”The sad truth is that some corporations are still in it for the money, regardless of certain basic rights. Microsoft’s Bing search engine is still operating in China. With minimal revenue losses and a lot on the line in terms of human rights, more companies should follow Google’s example. China restricts search engines from allowing results that they deem touchy. The subjects of the massacre on Tiananmen Square by the Chinese army and the occupation of Tibet are only a few political issues that must also be allowed on search engines. But unless other companies join Google, the effort will be only half-hearted. Other services have also been banned in China, as they were seen as threatening to the government.YouTube, Facebook and Twitter are only a few of the utilities — or time-wasters, at points — that have been blocked, but with this effort by Google, the Chinese government might come to terms with its dependence on globalized technologies. This move by Google may prove to make more of an impact outside of China. It is uncertain to say how many Chinese residents will read this or anything related to this matter, but international companies need to pay the most attention. Instead of their already minimal market shares in China or any other authoritarian nation, Microsoft and other corporations should consider turning down the opportunity of being an accomplice to tyranny and join Google for the benefit of human rights. — The Rutgers Daily Targum Editorial Board, March 24

Decriminal-izzle No one will be surprised to hear that a group of Brown students supports reduced penalties for marijuana possession. And with Snoop Dogg scheduled to perform on campus in just a few weeks, some might question our timing in writing this piece. However, we in fact have another pertinent reason. A Rhode Island State Senate commission voted last week to endorse the decriminalization of an ounce or less of marijuana. After reviewing the arguments for and against, we support the commission’s conclusion. The commission was founded to study marijuana policy last July in the wake of the marijuana decriminalization referendum that passed in neighboring Massachusetts in 2008. The panel included state legislators, law enforcement officers, economists, a doctor, a nurse and an attorney. Its work became even more urgent in February, when North Carolina State Rep. John Edwards, D-Portsmouth and Tiverton, introduced a decriminalization bill in the General Assembly. The bill would end jail sentences for individuals caught in possession of small amounts of marijuana, and reduce the maximum fine from $500 to $150. Since 2007, 399 Rhode Islanders convicted of first-offense possession have seen prison time — on average, three and a half months. There are two major reasons for decriminalization. First, it’s fiscally responsible. The commission estimated between $232,000 and $2 million per year in savings just on prison costs. Some members — including a lecturer in economics at Harvard — projected total annual savings of over $10 million. Given these numbers, decriminalization is a small but worthwhile step towards closing the state’s budget gap, which is expected to reach $427 million in 2011. Critics also claim that marijuana is a gateway drug and that decriminalization sends a message to youth that marijuana use is acceptable. The gateway drug theory mistakes correlation for causation — just because many heavy drug users first started with marijuana does not imply that their early experimentation is the driving force behind later involvement with other drugs. Hard drug use may more directly reflect the age at which an individual is first exposed to drugs, as well as the individual’s propensity to use any drugs at all. More importantly, the commission recommended that decriminalization legislzation apply only to those above the age of 18. An age minimum sensibly ensures that society’s message to kids about marijuana isn’t different from the message it sends about alcohol and tobacco. And decriminalizing possession would not change anything for those found driving while under the influence. — The Brown Daily Herald Editorial Board, March 24

Change worthy of inspection After a year of debate and discussion on healthcare reform, the House finally passed the Senate version of the controversial reform bill, the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act, in a narrow vote of 220 – 211 late Sunday night. In the immediate short term, many students will not see the effects of the measure, and, in fact, most of the bill’s major changes, which will likely pass the Senate during the Reconciliation process, don’t take effect until 2014 or later. Healthcare reform has been a long time in coming, and both sides of the aisle certainly acknowledge the need for changes to the one-sixth of federal expenditure that is tied up in healthcare. But many people oppose the way the final push was handled — and rightfully so. The Reconciliation process was developed as a method to avoid filibusters on contentious budget bills. Its first uses outside that realm were quite literally envisioned as loopholes. This wasn’t the way to pass the sort of landmark change healthcare represents. If this is the greatest public sector modification since Social Security, as many Democrats have asserted, it certainly shouldn’t be accomplished with a sort of parliamentary trick. Democrats who claim that the Republicans are the historic users of Reconciliation — 17 out of 23 prior usages — are not out of line, but using it themselves is certainly more Hammurabi and less senatorial. The larger issue, though, is what it all means for students. Once again, despite all the uproar, most probably won’t experience massive changes. However, one that might benefit students graduating soon — especially those facing unemployment — is the change which will allow parents to keep their children on their plans until age 26. But, for the most part, the new changes will benefit the financially struggling, those who have been previously denied for preexisting conditions and people in high-risk categories. The bill would also substantially alter the penalties for businesses which do not provide coverage and expand coverage opportunities — through provider exchanges — to Americans without coverage. There are merits to the legislation, and there are certainly areas which will require“change.”But students — and the populous in general — must take the time to understand the impact and identify what it will bring to students, even if it’s in 2014. — North Carolina State University Technician Editorial Board, March 22

‘Chelsea Chelsea’ needs more bang bang

By Laura E. Donovan Arizona Daily Wildcat She actually went that far. Well, at least in chapter one. In her new book “Chelsea Chelsea Bang Bang,” stand-up comic and host of E!’s “Chelsea Lately” Chelsea Handler went where most female comedians have dared not tread. The first chapter, titled “The Feeling,” chronicles Handler’s childhood masturbation habits. At age 8, Handler began playing with herself, and she’s been obsessed with the act ever since. Handler shamelessly fondled her crotch underneath the kitchen table during family meals, would grind up against the schoolyard swings to stimulate her genitals and skipped out on birthday parties so she could pleasure herself to “Growing Pains.” Yes, this sort of self-gratification can be taboo, and it’s shocking to even bring attention to it, but it’s a societal reality. Most of all, the topic can be funny in the context of a memoir. Handler definitely knows how to write about female masturbation


in a humorous way, even if it may be unattractive to men and a more traditional-minded audience. “Chelsea Chelsea”has such a strong start that readers inevitably demand and expect the comedy to thrive throughout the book. Unfortunately, the rest of“Chelsea Chelsea”isn’t half as entertaining as“The Feeling,”and the humor peaks on page 17, the final page of the chapter. Handler used a smart marketing technique, knowing that prospective customers will be intrigued by chapter one and purchase the book, only to be disappointed later on. Sadly, this chapter should have been in one of Handler’s other works so she wouldn’t have had to waste her time on a third book. Even so, several chapters have semi-entertaining elements to them. It’s kind of amusing to read about Handler’s cheapskate father who unrepentantly and publicly seeks to cheat people out of their money. Handler also talks about trying to find a temporary sex partner for her obese friend, Sylvan. Then she has a chapter that lists all the outrageous lies she’s told. Unfortunately, most of these stories don’t really deliver, nor

do they say much about Handler herself. Handler spends a little too much time talking about her dad’s delusional antics, Sylvan’s poor diet and her friend Sarah’s horrible fiancé. I wanted to hear more about Handler herself, especially having read her other two books,“My Horizontal Life”and“Are You There Vodka? It’s Me, Chelsea,”both of which explored her unusual drunken experiences and sex life. Handler seems to have changed considerably since her first book,“My Horizontal Life,” hit bookshelves in 2005.“My Horizontal Life” is a collection of her onenight stands and numerous sexual encounters. Though it’s meant to be comical, there’s a visceral undercurrent of loneliness and sadness at the end of the book. Handler asks herself and a friend at one point,“What guy is going to marry me?”The book is intended to make people laugh, but it’s tragic in nature because Handler finds herself alone and unsatisfied at age 30. Fast forward to “Chelsea Chelsea Bang Bang,” and we learn that Handler had a live-in boyfriend, Ted, who jokes about her laziness, binge eating and flatulence problems. This

is great, I thought. Handler isn’t so lonely anymore. However, more information is necessary. How did they meet? When did they start dating? Does Handler, who once prided herself on being kind of a sleaze, feel like this is going to last forever? Call me crazy, but I wanted more insight into her cohabitation. After all, Handler’s new book is much tamer than the last two, so an explanation of her transformation would be helpful. Considering the fact that Handler proudly got around a lot in her teen years and 20s, she fails to provide readers a summary of how, when and why she ultimately transitioned from a single girl to a woman in a serious relationship. Regardless of mixed or negative book reviews, Handler will remain successful and entertaining. She reinforces the idea that female comedians and women in general can be vulgar, crude, sexually driven and even disgusting. Call it unladylike, but it’s actually progressive and liberating for females. Hopefully, Handler can continue with her authentic voice and, in turn, produce better material in the future.

group of outdated, outspoken people who believe women are inherently sad until they are able to fulfill their destinies as wives and mothers. (Looking at you, Midwest.) And while the family pushers dominate most commercials, romantic comedies and even my beloved “Sex and the City,” Handler is dominating the ever-growing group of modern women looking for success and happiness with or without a man. And while some may find her lifestyle “sad,” Handler is anything but. She’s making money and becoming famous, all on her own terms. She posed for Playboy, but didn’t lose 50 pounds or get freaky Heidi Montag implants beforehand.

Her latest book is based heavily on her relationship with her older producer, which recently ended. And unlike the family pushers would have us believe, her return to the single life wasn’t the end of Handler’s world. As Handler is showing us, men — and romance in general — are merely pieces of the larger puzzle. They are great accessories in the fashion show of life, but not necessary for eternal happiness. So thank you, Chelsea, for giving us a glimpse of life outside of the 1950s, and making us laugh in the process. — Claire Engelken is a journalism senior. She can be reached at

Payday at the vending machines A University of Arizona Police Department officer arrived at the vending machines at 1117 E. Lowell St. Monday at 2:18 a.m. after a UA employee reported vandalism done to the machines. The employee said he noticed that two of the machines had been damaged and that a cashbox for one of the machines was in a nearby trashcan. The man told the officer that the vandalism had to have happened within 24 hours because he had cleaned the ramada the previous morning. On both machines, the locks had been pried off and drilled. The door to one of the machines was open and missing the cashbox. There did not appear to be any snacks missing. The officer took photos of the damage and placed them into property as evidence. There were no fingerprints on the empty cashbox. Tomdra Inc., the owner of the vending machines, was called and told where it could retrieve its property. The unsecured snacks were taken to Student Union Operations for safekeeping. There are no suspects or witnesses.

‘Cutting’ through campus A UAPD officer arrived at a vending machine ramada at 1117 E. Lowell St. Monday at 3:22 a.m. after a Student Union Operations employee reported suspicious men in the area. The worker told the officer that, while he was cleaning the vending machine area from a previous theft, he saw two men who looked like transients enter the ramada. He asked if they were students. The men said they were. The man said that one of the men had a knife scabbard on his right hip. The officer found the men on Fremont Avenue and Sixth Street. The men told the officer they were coming from Speedway Boulevard and just cutting through campus. Both men allowed the officer to search them. An eight-inch blade knife with an exposed hilt was found in one of the men’s backpack. Also, a Visa credit card belonging to neither of the men was found. The man with the knife said he did not want to alarm anyone with the knife, so he keeps it in his backpack. He also said he found the credit card in an alley between Speedway Boulevard and Rosemont Avenue. A check of the credit card showed the card as stolen. The man was warned that, if he were to bring a knife onto campus again, then he would be arrested. The credit card was placed into safekeeping.

Tasty news: Student makes a theft sandwich

of the UA student body uses an automobile for transportation.

A supervisor at the Student Union Memorial Center called UAPD on Monday at 12:08 p.m. to report a student stealing food. The supervisor told the officer the man tried to conceal extra food worth $2.75 in his sandwich. The woman said she has known the man to switch his food order forms to pay less for his food. She stated she would like to participate in prosecuting the man for shoplifting. After the man was read his Miranda Rights, he admitted to the officer that he did switch his forms so that he wouldn’t have to pay more for the food. He also said he was worried about spending too much money. The man was cited and released. A Code of Conduct referral was sent to the Dean of Students.

Oh no! Out of what will we drink? A UA student and member of the Sigma Kappa sorority called UAPD on Tuesday at 1:30 p.m. to report that a package had been stolen. The woman told an officer that her roommate called to tell her that a package that the sorority had ordered on March 19 had been delivered. The Sigma Kappa members looked around the outside of the sorority house around 1 p.m. and could not find the package and assumed it had been stolen. The woman told the officer that the package was small and weighed about five pounds. She added that the package contained 36 personalized shot glasses. There are no witnesses or suspects to the theft.

MIP² A UAPD officer was on bike patrol on Tuesday at 12:54 a.m. when he saw a man near Arizona-Sonora Residence Hall and Coronado Residence Hall, staggering as he walked on the north side of Arizona-Sonora. The officer stopped the man and asked for identification. The man said,“I think my ID is in my room.” When the officer asked where the man lived, he pointed to Arizona-Sonora and said,“I live in Coronado.” The officer could smell alcohol on the man. The man told the officer he had been at a friend’s 21st birthday party and had a few beers a friend gave him. He said to the officer, “Please give me a break, I already got an MIP.” As the officer talked with the man, he kept dropping his wallet, and it took several times to get his name right because he was slurring his words. The man said he “wasn’t even drinking on campus.”When the man was cited and released for minor in possession, he stated,“I guess I will get some community service.” After the officer arrested the man, he escorted him to Coronado.

’Cats excited for Pac-10 play

Age just a number for UA baseball Wildcat freshmen a huge part of 13 straight wins



Gordon Bates/Arizona Daily Wildcat

Arizona catcher Jett Bandy lines up his glove to receive a pitch during Arizona’s 11-7 victory over the New Mexico Lobos Wednesday at Sancet Stadium. The Wildcats are on a 13-game winning streak and open Pacific 10 Conference play tonight when the Oregon Ducks drop into Tucson.

UA opens conference play against Oregon at Sancet Stadium By Michael Fitzsimmons ARIZONA DAILY WILDCAT The Arizona baseball team is playing with a visible swagger right now — no matter what, the feeling is the Wildcats will win. Such is the result of No. 19 Arizona’s 13-game winning streak, which has the Wildcats primed and ready to begin Pacific 10 Conference play at 6 tonight against Oregon at Sancet Stadium. “It’s been great to come out and win like this. It’s a big confidence booster going into the (Pac-10 season),” said freshman Robert Refsnyder, who leads the team in batting average. “We’ve come together with this streak, and our confidence has really been built up.” Arizona (18-4) has overpowered its opponents with its bats, scoring 10 or more runs in six of its last eight games.

SWIM UPDATE Norovirus to blame for swimmers’ illness The NCAA Men’s Swimming Championships will finally get underway today in Columbus, Ohio, after a one-day delay due to the highly contagious norovirus, according to The Columbus Dispatch. The Ohio Department of Health lab confirmed the norovirus as the cause of at least 19 cases of illness late Thursday night after taking samples from four individuals. The championships will begin today at noon at McCorkle Aquatic Pavilion on the campus of Ohio State University. Arizona, Stanford and Texas have contracted the norovirus, and nine athletes alone were hospitalized from the Arizona team. The program would not release the names of the specific individuals, but confirmed that all nine have been released from the hospital according to Arizona head coach Frank Busch. The norovirus is spread through the air and can cause stomach pain, diarrhea and vomiting. Those who were infected were advised to stay out of the pool for 48 hours until after they stopped showing symptoms of the virus. Although all three programs took the same American Airlines flight from Dallas/Fort Worth International Airport according to Jen House, spokeswoman for the state of Health Department, public health officials aren’t ruling anything out at this point. “It’s also possible they were exposed to something here in Columbus and we’re concerned about that,”Columbus medical director Dr. Mysheika LeMaileWilliams told The Columbus Dispatch. The championships were pushed back after a coaches meeting late Wednesday and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention expressed concern over the possibility of infected swimmers using the pool. “We are going to try to do our best to try and weather the storm,” Busch said on Wednesday. —Arizona Daily Wildcat

But all of the team and individual accolades thus far will be measured against how the Wildcats fare in the Pac-10. Head coach Andy Lopez explained how he wouldn’t change the team’s approach to winning with the beginning of conference play, saying that all the work in the past month has been in preparation for tonight. “We’ve been kind of doing everything with this coming weekend in mind, and not just this weekend, the next 8 or 9 weekends too,” Lopez said. “In athletics, if you’re playing well, you do play with a little bounce. We’re going to stay with what we’ve been doing.” Freshman Kurt Heyer will toe the rubber tonight to get the series started. Heyer has been the Arizona’s unquestioned ace since his first start of the season and has relished the Friday night starter role by posting a

3-0 record and 2.10 ERA. Sophomores Bryce Bandilla and Kyle Simon will complete the weekend rotation by taking the ball on Saturday and Sunday, respectively. This weekend’s rotation will mark the first time this season the Wildcats have had the same pitching rotation for two weekends in a row. There also seems to be a more concrete answer to the closer competition in the Arizona bullpen, as Lopez hinted towards the winner after Wednesday’s game. “Based on what we’ve seen the past couple weeks, we’re going to go with (Nick) Cunningham at the end,” Lopez said. With Cunningham, a freshman, getting the nod to close the game, Arizona will have a freshman ace, closer and lead-off hitter, proof of how the first-year Wildcats haven’t shied away from pressure situations.

They will have to continue to prove they are capable of playing beyond their youth, as it remains to be seen how the freshmen will handle the grind of Pac-10 play. The Ducks (17-6) come to Tucson with a streak of their own, having won five games in a row and 12 of their last 13. After dropping the baseball program in 1982, Oregon is now a threat in the Pac-10 in its second year back, due in large part to its pitching staff which boasts the second best ERA in the Pac-10 at 2.31. Senior first baseman Rafael Valenzuela said Arizona’s continued aggressive style of play would be key in keeping the winning streak rolling against the Ducks. “We’re doing the little things right. We’re putting bunts down, we’re doing BASEBALL, page 8

Assistant sports editor

oung sports teams so often ease the pain of a long losing streak or a disappointing season by blaming it on youth and inexperience. The popular thought is this: If the season was a failure, just label it a rebuilding year, forget about the struggles and focus on the bright future. But through 22 games, the No. 19 Arizona baseball team — the youngest in the Pacific 10 Conference with 17 freshmen and 23 underclassmen — hasn’t needed to use inexperience as an excuse. In fact, it has proven that, in a game of statistics, age is only a number. The new-look Wildcats (18-4) are riding a 13-game winning streak and have emerged as the Pac-10’s most lethal offense, scoring 10 or more runs in six of the last eight games. And although the youthful Arizona team has veteran mainstays like Bryce Ortega and Rafael Valenzuela to turn to, it has been the freshmen making play after play in pressure-packed situations. These 18- and 19-year-old kids have a swagger about them that screams “seasoned veterans” rather than “college baseball first-timers.” “I told these guys: ‘stick your chest out,” head coach Andy Lopez said before the season began. “It doesn’t matter if you’re a freshman or not, there are guys your age in SCHMITZ, page 8

Getting into the swing of things By Nicole Dimtsios ARIZONA DAILY WILDCAT One last chance to get it right That’s all the Arizona softball team has before Pacific 10 Conference play begins. “This is a crucial weekend for us to get out and play well,”said Arizona head coach Mike Candrea. “I think that’s the bottom line of how well we’re playing, not so much the opponent.” Candrea wants to see the Wildcats (25-3) focus on themselves when they journey to Albuquerque, N.M., this weekend for a three game series against New Mexico. The Lobos (10-16) are familiar opponents for Arizona, who defeated New Mexico 9-3 on Saturday. Although the Wildcats picked up the win, Candrea was not pleased with the way the Arizona offense sputtered as the game wore on. “I think that he was just expecting us to come out with a little bit more fire and a little bit more determination,”said center fielder Lauren Schutzler. “I think we kind of looked at our opponent and played down a little bit.” For Arizona, this weekend will be a chance to regroup and return its regular players to the lineup before it travels to ASU for open conference play. The Wildcats struggled with injuries last weekend at the Judi Garman Classic in Fullerton, Calif. Freshman first baseman Baillie Kirker bruised her ribs and starting right fielder Karissa Buchanan broke the tip of her finger. Candrea said the status of both players would be evaluated day by day. “It gives some other kids some opportunities so they’re game-ready,” Candrea said. With the injuries, the Wildcats have had to see the bench step up and take over.

Shortstop K’Lee Arredondo stares down a pitch during a 13-0 win against St. John’s University on March 11 at Hillenbrand Stadium. UA head coach Mike Candrea’s team will play New Mexico in a three-game set against the Lobos before opening conference play next week.

lineup this weekend will be Lini Koria, who did not play last weekend due to the death of her mother. Koria has the ability to play multiple positions around the diamond and gives the Arizona offense consistent offensive power. The sophomore’s return is just one piece of the puzzle Arizona is trying to complete before Pac-10 season starts. “I think this is a really important weekend,” said Schutzler.“We definitely don’t want to take steps backwards. “We should be back full-force for Pac-10. This year we’ve had a really good season, had a really good preseason,” Schutzler added. “I think we’re very

confident going into Pac-10.” Instead of emphasizing the record, Candrea has been insistent on the process and making sure the proper plays are executed. Against New Mexico, Arizona needs to make the adjustments and show discipline at the plate, Candrea said. Ending the non-conference season on a good note is key for the Wildcats the team’s average record over the past 10 years. This season, the non-conference schedule has been more challenging. Arizona has already faced the current No. 3 team, Michigan, and the No. 4

team, Missouri, this season. “I think it just helps everyone’s confidence and gives us a boost going into Pac-10 having such a good preseason,”said K’Lee Arredondo. The way the non-conference season ends could have implications down the road for the Wildcats. Their biggest tests still awaiting them, Arizona has the chance to find a consistent offense and show consistent defensive prowess. “We’re just trying to get everything back together,” Candrea said, “getting some people back in the lineup. Getting on a roll here before Pac-10 play starts.”

Tennis to face Bay Area schools this weekend By Dan Kohler ARIZONA DAILY WILDCAT

Men prepare for conference play

After losing to Oklahoma in the final four of the Blue Gray Tennis Classic in Montgomery, Ala., No. 32 Arizona men’s tennis team heads to Berkeley to take on the No. 16 California Golden Bears in its first Pacific 10 Conference match of the season. “The guys did a great job competing at the Blue Gray,” said head coach Tad Berkowitz. “We feel we have confidence heading into our Pac-10 season.” As one of the premier conferences in the country, all of the men’s Pac-10 teams boast top-75 rankings, according to the Intercollegiate Tennis Association (ITA). The Wildcats (11-5) will have to have the same drive and momentum coming into this weekend’s contest facing a California (9-4) team poised to make a run for the conference title. “The Pac-10 is the toughest conference in the country for men’s tennis,” Berkowitz said. “But we have a tough team that can do some damage in our conference.” The No. 55 Arizona doubles team of Borja Malo and Pat Metham will need to be as solid as ever against the Golden Bears’ No. 20 Pedro Zerbini and Jonathan Dahan, one of the most touted doubles teams in the conference. The Golden Bears also feature three singles players in the ITA rankings. Zerbini and Dahan are ranked No. 14 and No. 120 respectively, with Christoffer Konigsfeldt at No. 58. “Every team is really strong this year, and every team has improved since last year and so have we,” Berkowitz said. “We will be ready to go.” “This is the most important time of the year for us and we look forward to the challenge.”

Women look to make it three straight at home

After finding its feet in conference play against the Oregon Ducks, the No. 55 Arizona women’s tennis team looks to remain perfect at the LaNelle Robson Tennis Center this weekend against the No. 10 California Golden Bears and the No. 12 Stanford Cardinal. “Our win against Oregon was definitely a confidence-booster,” said head coach Vicky Maes . “We had come back from a rough weekend in Washington, and the girls really needed to battle back mentally. It took a great team effort, but everyone stepped up and we dominated.” Looking for their second conference win, the

SPORTS BRIEFS W-golf heads to Austin

After a three-week layoff, the Arizona women’s golf team is set to return to competitive play today. The Wildcats will tee off in the Betsy Rawls Longhorn Invitational, a three-day, 54-hole event hosted by the University of Texas. Arizona sits at No. 9 in the latest National Golf Coaches Association coaches’ poll, released March 10. The 16-team field features six teams in the NGCA top 25 — No. 2 UCLA, No. 9 Arizona, No. 16 Stanford, No. 17 Vanderbilt, No. 21 Texas A&M and No. 23 New Mexico. Texas Christian University, University of California, Davis, Washington, Texas, Oregon, Northwestern, Notre Dame, Tulsa, Chattanooga and Oklahoma round out the tournament field. In its last time out, the Arizona women’s team finished in fifth place at the Bruin Wave Invitational, co-hosted by Pepperdine and UCLA. The Wildcats are looking for their fourth consecutive top-5 finish. The Wildcats are led by Isabelle Boineau, who has four top-20 finishes in six events played. She also leads the team with a 73.13 scoring average and low round of 68. Arizona will need consistency from freshman Sherlyn Popelka, who leads the team with five rounds at or below par but is third in scoring average at 73.36.

Geoff Embry smashes a serve on March 5 in Arizona’s 6-1 win against Santa Clara at LaNelle Robson Tennis Center.

Arizona women (10-4, 1-2 Pac-10 Conference) must play consistently if they want to beat the very competitive Golden Bears (12-3), who are beginning conference play this weekend. Last weekend against the Memphis Tigers, the Wildcats were able to assert their dominance winning five of six singles matches and two out of three doubles matches. With the duo of No. 93 Natasha Marks and Sarah Landsman playing, the Wildcats should be able to bring their confidence from their two previous victories into Friday’s contest. “Natasha and Sarah, playing at the top, have tough line-ups,” Maes said. “But they always have opportunities to win in their positions, and they set the trend for everyone. Certainly everyone on the team is capable of winning though, so it will be exciting to see who will step up.” The Golden Bears are coming into Tucson fresh off a sweep-victory at No. 51 Pepperdine, and with the tenacity of No. 2 ranked singles player Jana Juricova, they will be prepared to strip the Wildcats home court advantage. “Sometimes, when you compete against a top team, you get the idea that you have to play better, and that’s where people start making too many early mistakes,” Maes said. “I think our girls can do well if we stick to executing our strengths and avoid panicking about our weaknesses. “These ’Cats are capable. They just have to believe harder sometimes.”

Distance squad travels to Stanford

For the second meet of the season, nine distance athletes will be headed to Palo Alto, Calif. for the Stanford Relays. The meet will allow the distance squad to open up on a full 400-meter track after having been cramped on the 300-m indoor tracks. “It’s our first high-level competition for the outdoor races,” said distance coach James Li. Redshirt sophomore Abdi Hassan will be a chance for him to compete in his most decorated event: the 1500-m run. Hassan set the record twice for the 1500-m during his first year and finished fifth in the Pacific 10 Conference Championships. Since his runners now have a full-sized track on which to compete, Li is spreading his team across many events. “They get to run something that they weren’t able to run during the indoor season, like the steeplechase and the 1500-m,” he said. “We haven’t ran the 1500-m race since last June.” — Galo Mejia

‘We’re young, but that’s no excuse for us to play young’

Afghanistan, so let’s get after it. Let’s go. Let’s play college baseball.’” The Wildcat freshmen have done exactly that and then some. In the 11th inning of a tie ballgame against California State University, Fullerton, on March 5, it was freshman third baseman Seth Mejias-Brean who singled home freshman shortstop Alex Mejia to propel the Wildcats to an 8-7 victory. The Arizona youngsters were at it again Wednesday night against the University of New Mexico. Rickard tied the game with an RBI single in the seventh, and Mejia drove in the go-ahead run with a bases-loaded, two-RBI single in the bottom of the eighth that led to an eventual 10-4 victory. After dealing with off-the-field issues last season that led him to describe the year as “a complete nightmare,” Lopez was eager for a fresh start and showed confidence in this revamped group from day one. “They’re going to play this year,” he said of the freshmen. “No ifs, ands or buts — they’re playing.” The simple fact that Lopez penciled in freshman pitcher Kurt Heyer (3-0) as the opening-day starter speaks volumes. Heyer’s six-inning, 13-strikeout performance in his first collegiate start sent a message to the rest of the youngsters and epitomized how the Wildcats wanted to approach the season. “We’re young, but that’s no excuse for us to play young,” said junior pitcher Daniel Workman before the first official practice on Feb. 1. Lopez has expressed how much he likes this group all season long, as he praises its work ethic and never-quit attitude seemingly every game. And junior second baseman Bryce Ortega, who earned All-Pac-10 honors last season at shortstop, echoed Lopez’s praise after


Play begins today with a 7:15 a.m. split-tee start and will go through Sunday.

Wednesday’s win against New Mexico. “I really like this group of guys,” Ortega said. “They’re not going to give up. They’re not going to give in.” You don’t have to dig deep into the stats to see how big of an impact the freshmen have had this season. The current team leader in batting average is freshman Robert Refsnyder, whose .475 average is good for second in the Pac-10. The Wildcats’ top RBI man is none other than Rickard, whose 33 RBIs lead the Pac-10. Rickard is also first on the team in stolen bases (11) and is tied with sophomore Jett Bandy for the team lead in home runs (4). Of the four freshmen everyday position players, three are hitting over .375. But the hitters haven’t been the only ones playing like experienced vets. Heyer showed the necessary poise and the dominating stuff in his first start and took the Pac-10 by storm, as he grabbed hold of the Friday-night slot. He pitched his way into Arizona baseball record books in only one appearance, while earning Pac-10 Player of the Week and“Louisville Slugger” National Player of the Week along the way. After five starts, Heyer is seventh in the Pac-10 in ERA (2.10), third in innings pitched (34.1) and third in strikeouts (43, to only four walks). To have a freshman come in and solidify himself as a legitimate ace less than a week into the season is symbolic of the way the youngsters have gone about their business this season. Whether it’s been with the bats, gloves or arms, the Arizona freshmen have already made their presence felt 22 games into the 2010 campaign. — Mike Schmitz is a business sophomore.

Wildcats to cap 25-game homestand against Ducks

hit and runs, we’re stealing a lot of bases,” said Valenzuela.“It keeps the defense on their heels, they never know if you’re going to bunt, steal or hit and run, and it just keeps the other team guessing.” As the Wildcats begin their last series in Tucson to cap a 25-game homestand to start the season, Arizona’s ability to stick to its own brand of baseball that includes making things happen on offense will be conducive to winning games against tough conference opponents.

Lopez explained that the modus operandi for success in the Pac-10 is to win two out of three games every series, and he was excited to see how the upstart Wildcats would handle the challenge of conference games. “If you’re going to have a special year, you’ve got to get two out of three,”Lopez said.“I’m anxious and eager to start playing, and I think these guys are too. We’ve put a pretty good stretch together, so hopefully we’ll continue now that we get into Pac-10 play.”

Gymcats ready to take on Pac-10

UA has advantage as McKale hosts conference championships By Kevin Nadakal Arizona Daily Wildcat The Arizona gymnastic’s team has one not-so-secret advantage in this year’s Pacific 10 Conference Gymnastics Championships — home gym advantage. The entire Pac-10 will converge on Tucson tomorrow for the league championships, which begins at 4 p.m. in McKale Center. “It’s a longer meet, it’s a slower meet,” said UA head coach Bill Ryden. “There is also a lot more excitement combined with a lot more pressure. It’s the type of thing that you have to keep your head and your focus for a long period of time, even during your bye time, when you are doing nothing.” Given that the Pac-10 Championships will be such a large meet, each team will have three byes put into their rotation, which are usually not given to them. “We start on a bye, which is great; I love our rotation, especially for this team,” Ryden said. “It’s a great rotation for anybody, but considering how strong we are on vault and floor, we get to start on a strong event and finish on a strong event.” Each team will be secluded into corrals, giving the audience a more fan-friendly atmosphere. “(With this setup) the competitor is the showcase, you don’t have all the girls around the equipment,” said assistant coach Colleen Johnson.“The gymnastics is the same, but the excitement is obviously amplified.” The Gymcats are not used to being separated from their teammates and unable to cheer them on. It is common for the Gymcats to become part of the performance as they stand on the side, dancing along with the music or hyping up the crowd. “I think it’s harder for the girls in the

corral, because they want to be along the side of the floor,” Johnson said. “Especially for floor, it’s fun to look over at your teammates and wink, and it helps the performance aspect. “These girls are experienced enough to deal with it,” she added. “There is no question that it’s a heightened level of pressure being out there by yourself.” The competition will be no joking matter, as three teams are currently in the top-10. The Gymcats have a 4-3 record against the other Pac-10 schools. Last year, the Pac-10 Championships were hosted by Stanford, and the Gymcats finished in fifth place. UCLA eventually walked away with the Pac10 crown. The Gymcats were only able to put up a team total of 194.325, and the goal this entire season has been to hit 196. They hit that mark two weeks ago during their final home meet and will try to keep that momentum going. One obvious advantage will be that the Gymcats are competing at their home venue. Every team is given a practice time in McKale on Friday, and Ryden is happy his team can use McKale and their practice facility, the Mary Roby Training Center, at any time. According to the gymnasts, it will help during their bye time. “The last two home meets, we improved, so I think it being a home meet will definitely help us,” said sophomore Katie Matusik. “All our families will be there — and all our fans — so it will be a really awesome event.” They will also be able to go back into their own locker room and try to remain focused on their objective. “I don’t expect us to go really anything under 196,” said senior captain Sarah Tomczyk. “It’s time to put it together, because you can’t mess up now.”
