Regents seek student input Arizona board to hold tuition hearing before its next meeting By Brenna Goth ARIZONA DAILY WILDCAT Students can voice their opinions and concerns about next year’s tuition increases during an Arizona Board of Regents hearing today. An interactive videoconference will allow students and community members to give their input on the levels of tuition and mandatory fees before the regents’ next meeting on April 7. UA President Robert Shelton proposed a $1,500 tuition increase for resident students and $600 for non-resident students for next year. Access sites for the hearing will be held at university campuses across the state. Comments are accepted on a first-come, first-serve basis rotating between locations. Student participation has affected regents’ opinions in the past, according to Regent Ernest Calderón. “We get to hear where students are coming from on it,” he said. “It serves a great benefit.” Student government leaders are also given a designated time to speak. Associated Students of the University of Arizona President Emily Fritze will address the regents along with Emily Connally, president of the Graduate and Professional Student Council. Fritze said she will not have a completed tuition proposal by the hearing but will present student reaction and other information for the regents to consider. “I won’t have the formal document but can make some preliminary comments,” she said. Both ASUA and the Arizona Students’ Association are

New funds for elderly study

National Institutes of Health awards grant to study immune responses in older people By Michelle Weiss ARIZONA DAILY WILDCAT The UA Department of Immunobiology and the UA’s Arizona Center on Aging were awarded an $11.8 million grant from the National Institutes of Health to study the decline of immunity in the elderly. “The overall purpose of the study is really to understand why immunity in old people declines so drastically,” said Dr. Janko Nikolich-Zugich, head of the immunobiology department. “We’re working to fix it.” Nikolich-Zugich, the primary investigator of the study, said infections are one of the top five causes of death in people

over the age of 65. “We don’t like that statistic, so that’s something we’re trying to change,” said Kristin Renkema, a third-year immunobiology graduate student working on the study. Previous research has shown parts of the immune system decline with age, and the most dramatic decline happens with T-lymphocyte cells , also known as T-cells. They are part of the adaptive immune system and they attack viruses with high precision, NikolichZugich said. The problem that elderly people are facing is that the number of T-cells in their bodies decrease with time, he said.

“We have also discovered that those (T-cells) that are around do not get activated the way that they should be and they cannot divide as robustly as they did in youth,” he said. In the course of an immune response, it is very important for cells to multiply, NikolichZugich said. Normally, expansion and division of cells takes place, but the frequency of that process declines in older people. The division of cells and the process of differentiation are impaired, he said. In past work, researchers have identified some of these defects in a model using mice. They are now trying to apply it to human treatment and new vaccines that might allow older

organisms to better defend the body against infection. Renkema works primarily with the mouse model. Her project examines the aging defects in the T-cell itself, she said. “We have actually found some defects in the components of the cell that seem to be a common defect that can cause the broad-scale defects we see in the immune system,” Renkema said. The thymus gland, which is how the T-cell received its name, greatly reduces manufacturing cells at the time of puberty, Nikolich-Zugich said. It shrinks and produces less than one-tenth of what it produced GRANT, page 2

TUITION, page 2

Students marry more By Eliza Molk ARIZONA DAILY WILDCAT College-educated young adults are more likely than those without a bachelor’s degree to be married by age 30, according to the Pew Research Center for the People and the Press. In 2008, 62 percent of collegeeducated 30 year olds were married or had been married, in comparison to 60 percent of 30 year olds who did not have a college degree. This is said to be a reversal of long-standing marital patterns, according to the Pew Research Center. In 1990, 69 percent of college-educated 30 year olds were married or had been married, in comparison to 75 percent of not college-educated 30 year olds. Megan Leidenz, a 21-yearold psychology junior, married earlier this month. “We love each other, we knew

INSIDE Opinions: Police Beat: Odds & Ends: Classifieds: Comics: Sports:

we would be together for the rest of our lives, so we just figured why not,” she said. Leidenz has been in a relationship with her husband for five years. She said that they had talked about marriage for years, and the only reason they would have considered waiting to wed is to “have a bit more money.” She added that her parents were very supportive in her decision to marry young, and that her father’s only concern was that she would not complete her degree. The research center said that a possible explanation for this shift is the declining economic successes of young men without a college degree and their increasing tendency to live with a partner rather than marry them. From 1990 to 2008, the inflationadjusted median annual earnings of college-educated men from ages 25 to 34 increased by 5 percent, while the median annual earnings of individuals with a high school

education declined by 12 percent. Another possible explanation given by the center is that young women with college degrees are now just as likely as women without college degrees to marry, which was, according to the center, not the case in 1990. Courtney Burford, a nutritional sciences junior, has been dating her fiance for four years and is planning to get married in the summer of 2012, although she has not yet picked an official date. She explained that she did not consider waiting to wed because they had been dating so long that they “knew for a while that they were going to get married.” She also said they do not need to wait because they both have set career paths — her as a clinical dietician, and him with Cox Communications, his employer for the past few years. She added that her family is excited for the future wedding, and that her fiance asked her mom’s permission to marry beforehand.

TUITION continued from page 1 informing students of the hearing through Facebook, emails and phone calls. “We’re definitely trying to get students out there,” Fritze said. “If this is an issue that’s important to them, they should show it by going at least to listen, but even more so, to speak and give a public testimony.” Regents consider these testimonies when making decisions about tuition. “I want to hear why (students) think it’s reasonable or not and what impact it has on them,” Calderón said. Students who explain the consequences of tuition increases, such as having to find a second job, strengthen their arguments, Calderón said.

“If someone comes in ranting and raving and saying we’re bad people, it doesn’t help,” he said. Elma Delic, board chair of ASA, recommended students arrive at the hearing 30 to 45 minutes beforehand to sign up to speak. “I think it’s good to prepare something,” Delic said. “Make sure you have a good personal story. They’re absolutely critical.”

cells are going to be different types of cells.” Some cells will make the chemicals that kill the bacteria or stop and slow down the virus, and some will make antibodies that will bind to the virus and neutralize it to whisk it away, he said. The system to fight infections is highly coordinated. Understanding exactly which parts of the immune system are declining and aging is the first and most important step in putting an end to more serious infections for older adults, Nikolich-Zugich said. One level of intervention would be to give elderly people a very specialized type of vaccine. A vaccine that would be tailored to what the old immune system was and one that would make T-cells stronger and be activated more quickly, he said.

continued from page 1 before. The cells that have been around for a considerable amount of time do not respond well when infections hit. The two major parts of the immune system are the innate immune system and the adaptive immune system, Nikolich-Zugich said. The innate system works to detect the infection and to contain it in order to slow it down, it also alerts the adaptive system. The adaptive immune system works to adjust to the specific bug that someone is infected with, he said. “Once the adaptive immune system gets up and gets activated, it will produce this whole army of cells that are going to go and fight the infection,” Nikolich-Zugich said, “and those

NATION & WORLD Taliban abducts dozens of Afghan police applicants in Kunar McClatchy Newspapers KABUL, Afghanistan — Taliban militants have abducted about 50 young men who wanted to join the national police in the eastern province of Kunar, security officials said Sunday. “These were youths from Vaigal district of Nuristan province who came to the provincial center in hopes of joining the police force,” Gen. Shamsul Rehman Zahid Nuristani, the police chief for the Nuristan province, said of the abductions, which took place Saturday. Zabiullah Mujahid, spokesman for the Taliban insurgents, claimed responsibility for the abductions in a statement posted on their website, but asserted that the would-be recruits were police. “Today around noon time 50 police of the puppet regime, all unarmed, who came from Nuristan province to this area, were arrested during an armed ambush in Kunar province,” the statement said. Taliban insurgents regularly attack anyone affiliated with the U.S.-backed Afghan government. Nuristan and Kunar are remote provinces in eastern Afghanistan on the long border with Pakistan. Afghan officials blame Pakistan for not doing enough to crack down on militants who cross the border into Afghanistan. Nuristani said the would-be recruits were told that there was “no shortage of police in this province; if (more are)

needed we’ll call you.” It was on the way back to their home villages that Taliban insurgents detained them, in Chapa Dara district in Kunar province. He said the authorities had sent local elders to negotiate with the Taliban for the men’s release. “We hope they will be set free soon,” he said. Gen. Kalilullah Ziayee, the Kumar province police chief, confirmed the abductions. “Around 10 on Saturday morning, about 30-40 men, all in civilians clothes who coming from Nuristan toward Kunar province, were detained by the Taliban insurgents,” Ziayee said. Meanwhile, on Sunday, a NATO soldier died after being struck by an improvised explosive device in southern Afghanistan, according to the headquarters of international forces in Kabul. The statement gave no details about the exact location of the incident or the nationality of the dead soldier. The Taliban are stepping up their attacks against Afghan and foreign troops as the Afghan government prepares to assume security responsibilities from NATO forces starting in July, culminating in what is hoped to be a complete takeover by 2014. Afghan President Hamid Karzai last week announced that Afghans will take control of security in seven locations, including Lashkar Gah in the center of the volatile southern Helmand province.

McClatchy Newspapers TOKYO — Officials at Japan’s stricken Fukushima Daiichi nuclear plant late Sunday retracted their announcement that they had found puddles at the facility’s No. 2 reactor containing 10 million times more radioactivity than would be found in water in a normally functioning nuclear reactor. “The number is not credible,” Tokyo Electric Power Co. spokesman Takashi Kurita, said, according to the Associated Press. “We are very sorry.” It was not immediately clear what led to the inaccurate reading of the water, or what the real level was. The company said on its website that there was a “mistake in the assessment of the measurement of iodine-134.” The initial announcement of the extremely high levels of radioactivity in the turbine building of the No. 2 reactor was made by Japan’s Nuclear and Industrial Safety Agency, citing Tepco as the source of the data. The alarming announcement raised questions about the source of the radioactivity and the extent of damage to the plant, as well as the threat to workers trying to stabilize the situation at Fukushima, which was crippled by the March 11 earthquake and tsunami. Thesubsequentretractionunderscored the pressures Japanese officials and Tepco executives face in reporting information to the public. Government authorities and the company have been criticized for not providing information in a timely fashion to the public. A Kyodo News survey released Sunday found that 58.2 percent of respondents did not approve of the government’s handling of the nuclear crisis at the crippled Fukushima Daiichi nuclear power plant, while 39.3 percent expressed approval.

Ruling German coalition loses key state elections; Greens gain McClatchy Newspapers BERLIN — German Chancellor Angela Merkel’s ruling coalition suffered bruising losses in two state legislative elections Sunday, losing control of the main prize, Baden-Wuerttemberg state, provisional results showed. In the large and prosperous southeastern state, Merkel’s Christian Democrats ended a 58year winning streak, winning 39 percent of the vote, a 5-percentagepoint loss of vote share. The Green Party was set to nominate its first state premier ever. The environmentalists won about 24.2 percent, enough to rule Baden-Wuerttemberg in a coalition with the Social Democrats, who won 23.1 percent. Foreign Minister Guido Westerwelle’s Free Democratic Party (FDP) won 5.3 percent, half what it got five years ago. The Green-SPD coalition won 71 of 138 legislatibr seats. The government parties’ loss of the state will give the opposition a stronger hold on the Bundesrat, the upper chamber of the German

federal parliament, representing the 16 state governments. That will make it harder than ever for Merkel to push through federal legislation. “It’s an historic electoral win,” Winfried Kretschmann, the state Green leader, told cheering, chanting supporters in Stuttgart. “After the polarization of this election campaign, we’ll try to unify people . . . and lead them in the Green direction.” The state’s CDU premier, Stefan Mappus, conceded defeat He blamed public alarm over the Fukushima nuclear disaster in Japan. “In the last 14 days we had the problem that after various tough issues last year, we had these dreadful images from Japan too,” he said on a TV news program. One-sixth of Germans live in the two states that voted Sunday. The polls were seen as the principal electoral test for Merkel this year. In the smaller state of Rhineland Palatinate, voters punished the FDP, the junior party in the Merkel federal coalition, rather than the CDU, which raised its vote share slightly to 35.2 percent, provisional results showed.

The FDP won just 4.2 percent of the vote. The incumbent Social Democrats won only 35.7 percent of the state vote, down 9 percentage points from 2006. But the state’s SPD premier, Kurt Beck, was expected to remain in power in coalition with the high-riding Greens, who won 15.4 percent of the vote. The elections elevated the Greens, formerly a bit player in state politics, to a status equal to the Social Democrats. The Green Party advocates conversion to renewable energy and tax increases to fund education, but its economic and foreign policies are close to those of the other main parties. The Merkel government vainly tried to tame public anger over nuclear power by ordering an energy-policy review and a threemonth moratorium on plans to extend the legal lifetime of newer nuclear plants. Sigmar Gabriel, national leader of the Social Democrats, said: “Today was the death sentence for nuclear power in Germany. There is no going back.”

EDITORIAL ASUA elections reveal flawed Elections Code


he interesting thing about the Associated Students of the University of Arizona is how completely uninteresting they are. Most people just don’t care. It took a candidate who, weeks prior to the announcement of his campaign run, was thrust into the national spotlight and hailed as the country’s hero to get people to pay attention. And after that, it took a lot of gossip to get people to care about why he and the other candidate for ASUA president were disqualified. Now that all the speculative rumors have been put to rest, and everyone can rest assured that neither Daniel Hernandez nor James Allen were buying their votes, it’s debatable whether or not anyone cares more about what ASUA is up to. Still, as the details of ASUA’s presidential elections are finally revealed (nearly three weeks after they should have been), the organization’s answers only seem to inspire a lot more questions. Some questions are pretty simple: How could Hernandez not know that the “Learn Without Concern” gun forum event was, in part, sponsored by ASUA, and therefore he shouldn’t wear a campaign shirt to it? Answer: He must have known, and if not, that’s just weird. Other questions are more complicated: How does the ASUA elections commissioner fairly determine the number of “violation checks” given for each Elections Code violation? According to ASUA’s violation guide, “in order to assure fair and consistent decisions issued by the elections commission, candidates will be issued checks depending on the severity of their violation.” One check is applied for each section of the Elections Code violated if the violation disrupts the election or gives an advantage to a particular candidate. One is applied for “blatant disregard of the Elections Code or authority of the commission.” One for malice toward another candidate’s campaign. One for intentional or deliberate violation of the code or authority of the commission. One for violations that “prove to be severely or obviously advantageous.” Thus, more than one violation check can be given for a single violation, and these checks accumulate throughout the course of the election process. The lesson: Don’t piss off the elections commissioner or your one violation could have five checks for extra, super bad severity. Consequences vary, beginning with a warning and proceeding to fines or a loss of campaign materials, all the way up to disqualification. But take the Ponton brothers, for example. Bryan and Brett Ponton each received 10 violation checks, but the elections commission chose not to uphold one, resulting in nine checks for each of them and seats as administrative and executive vice-presidents. That’s integrity for you. Furthermore, the violations and corresponding checks are generally based on weak evidence. At the very least, how reliable is “witness testimony” of spotting things like Team Mauve gluing posters to cars in the Tyndall Avenue Parking Garage? When a complaint form claims Hernandez was wearing a “Vote Team Red” T-shirt to an ASUA-sponsored event, and includes a screenshot of ASUA’s website with an advertisement for the event circled, does that really qualify as evidence? According to the Elections Code, “the elections commissioner shall issue final interpretation of this code unless the decision is appealed.” The commission also “shall have the discretion as to whether to levy a violation and subsequent penalties in the form of warnings, fines, loss of campaign rights, and/or disqualifications.” And code violations are assessed by the commission, “all under the discretion of the elections commission.” Without the intrigue of far-fetched rumors, students care less about ASUA’s elections process and the candidates. But Hernandez’s and Allen’s disqualifications should serve as an eye-opener. Ah, democracy. — Editorials are determined by the Daily Wildcat editorial board and written by one of its members.

MAILBAG Mock border wall respects all human life

As one of the organizers of the mock border wall, I want to acknowledge the College Republicans’ memorial for Border Patrol agents who have died near the US-Mexico border. We mourn the loss of all human life. Our demonstration is a statement against militarization, not a demonization of individuals.  The mock border wall gives representation to those ignored and forgotten by mainstream media and society. Thirty-six agents from all seven border and customs enforcement agencies have died in the last ten years (The Officer Down Memorial Page, Inc.), and their deaths have been acknowledged and mourned throughout the country. In contrast, the bodies of 59 migrants were recovered between October 2010 and February 2011, and 2,104 bodies have been recovered in the Arizona-Sonora Desert since 2000 (Coalicion de Derechos Humanos), with little recognition or respect. It is their lives we have chosen to memorialize, their lives, which have been rendered invisible, that we have chosen to represent. Outrage and grief at the violence near the border should not become misguided patriotism that supports increased militarization — this will only lead to more death. Those who truly mourn the loss of life in the US-Mexico border region must stand

against militarization policies, and demand policies that respect and protect all human life. — Elizabeth Dake History and religious studies senior and Women’s Resource Center intern

Border wall attacks wrong issue

In response to the mock border wall on the UA Mall: Without a doubt, the immigration laws and systems of the United States should be re-examined and, if necessary, updated and amended. The necessity of the actual, physical border barrier and subsequent law enforcement and protection of it, however, should not be up for debate. It would be naive and outright dangerous to suggest open borders, or to demonize the Border Patrol and the idea of a fence. While the exact agenda of the current “mock border fence” group is unclear, the exhibit itself seems to do both of these things. This country needs to know who is coming in and who is leaving at all times. Their status as a U.S. citizen, or citizen of another country is irrelevant — there are both dangerous and friendly people crossing the border constantly (made clear by Border Patrol agents who have given their lives in the line of duty). It is imperative that law enforcement officials know who those people are (U.S. citizens leaving or entering included), in order to protect this country as a whole.

Yes, debate about our immigration laws needs to happen. But until this exhibit’s organizers offer a plan for (somehow) removing the border fence and border patrol, all while maintaining national security, it seems they are attacking entirely the wrong issues with their fence on the Mall. — Alex Yang Aerospace engineering junior

Students must bear down for education

The UA not only has a great basketball team; but also a sharp student body, an excellent law college, and a superb faculty. Why not put all these brains to the task of getting the Arizona state Legislature and governor to support the Arizona constitutional mandate to provide education as nearly free as possible to all Arizona students. The Legislature has done that for elementary and high school students, but has fallen woefully short of that mandate for college students. The Arizona Supreme Court in 1935 said college fees should be neither excessive nor unreasonable. Our current planned tuition jumps are both excessive and unreasonable. Bear down, ‘Cats, for an education as nearly free as possible as mandated in our Arizona State constitution! — Bill Nicholson Retired educator, UA alumnus

The Jesus elephant in the room Storm Byrd Arizona Daily Wildcat


he theory of intelligent design and its supporters are getting some help in the Texas Legislature. Last week, Republican Texas state Rep. Bill Zedler introduced a bill that would protect Texas college students and professors who believe in the theory of intelligent design. The bill would ban Texas universities from punishing professors or students who are either conducting research into intelligent design or other theories that disagree with evolution. Zedler has aligned himself as a defender of intelligent design followers, who he believes are afraid to speak their minds for fear of retribution. On the flip side, Kathy Miller, the President of the Texas Freedom Network, a group that opposes religious influence in public education, has come forth in staunch opposition to the bill. Miller claims that it takes a hack at science when science ought to be championed. I am all for religious freedom, tolerance, understanding and differences. Punishing

someone because they disagree with you on evolution is plain wrong. Let me be clear, I also fully advocate the theory of evolution. While I recognize there are holes where science has yet to explore, I still put my trust in that theory instead of completely relying on the faith required to believe in intelligent design. Nonetheless, if people wish to put their faith in a theory that cannot be tested or proven, they ought to have the freedom to do so without fear of persecution. School systems are where we ought to teach tolerance for people who have different ideas than our own. Understanding is achieved only through confrontation. If we don’t allow people with different opinions and beliefs into our systems, then we create a singleminded atmosphere where students are never confronted with the reality of differing faiths and perspectives. Yes, there ought to be separation of church and state, but ostracizing people

of faith is simply incorrect. Even if these people wish to pursue their faith in academic pursuits they should be able to do so. However, it must be made clear that intelligent design is simply not science. It is faith, and faith rests in cultural studies. One cannot study if the theory of intelligent design is or is not accurate. The theory cannot be tested. Nevertheless, one can study the answers provided by the theory and search for ways that intelligent design might be linked to the theory of evolution. Zedler ’s bill has a legitimate point. Of course there is the possibility that he has alternative motives behind his bill, but the basis of the bill is just. Although some may argue that we are a nation founded on religious principles, we are ultimately a nation of tolerance. Our country was founded on the principles of equal opportunities and equal treatment. Those who support intelligent design are causing no harm to their fellow students or faculty and thus have the right to speak freely about their ideas. Just because we disagree with them, and just because intelligent design is not science, doesn’t mean they should be punished or outcast. — Storm Byrd is a political science sophomore.

UA goes dark for climate awareness By Bethany Barnes ARIZONA DAILY WILDCAT

UA Residence Life Eco-Reps drummed up some electricityfree fun for the global event Earth Hour on Saturday. This year, 134 countries, six more than last year, shut off their lights for Earth Hour at 8:30 p.m. in an effort to fuel climate change action. UA’s Earth Hour took place on the UA Mall with lights shut off on the east side of the Mall past Cherry Avenue. Lights had to stay lit on the west side for safety reasons. On the dark side of the Mall, the UA Astronomy Club had telescopes available. “They are concerned about lights as well being off,” said Jake Turner, student adviser of the Eco-Reps and a senior majoring in astronomy and physics, adding that it gave the event more variety. “It just makes this (Earth Hour) more desirable for a greater number of people.” Jill Ramirez, coordinator of Sustainability Education for Residence Life, estimated in an email that 150 to 175 people attended the event and 116 signed in to earn Recycle Mania points for his or her residence hall. Entertainment included The Charles Darwin Experience, Planet Djembe drumming and the Elemental Artistry fire arts

We have the Daily Wildcat

performance troupe. The Charles Darwin Experience has been performing at Earth Hour since it began two years ago. “They are wonderful, electricityfree entertainment,” Ramirez said. For the event, Eco-Reps gave away vegetarian pizza, a more sustainable option, and shirts made from recycled bottles. Attendees also had the chance to play a game called “glow stick ninja.” Ramirez described the game as being like cat and mouse, with one person trying to tap someone’s wrist while at the same time the other person tries to move away. Eco-Rep and biochemistry freshman Nicole Williams said she enjoyed the game because it is something fun in which everyone is able to participate. The game required glow stick wristbands so that people were able to see players’ wrists. The glow sticks were the only aspect of the event that was not sustainable. Ramirez said they had found a company that would provide sustainable glow sticks but the deal fell through so they had to go with the less sustainable option. Planning for the event began last semester, Ramirez said. “It’s just very personally rewarding to be an educator (and) see students getting excited about education,” Ramirez said.

Residents turned off their lights and electronics for Earth Hour and headed to the UA Mall on Saturday night to enjoy entertainment hosted by the Residence Hall Association. The event featured performances from the Charles Darwin Experience, Elemental Artistry, and Planet Djembe.

policebeat By Alexander Vega Arizona Daily Wildcat

Football player intercepts shoplifting charge

A UA football player was arrested for shoplifting from the UofA Bookstore on March 23 at 1:32 p.m. A University of Arizona Police Department officer responded to the bookstore after receiving a call from bookstore security. Upon arriving, the officer met with the security employee on the second floor outside of the conference room. The employee identified the two suspects detained in the conference room. One of the suspects stole two packs of pens — which were clearly marked for sale — from the shelf, walked past all points of sale and out through the exit. Security staff confronted the suspect outside of the store. While speaking with the employee, the suspect attempted to pass the stolen pens to the other suspect who was with him. Observing the handoff, the security employee then escorted both men to the second floor conference room. The suspect who stole the pens said he needed them for a class project. He intended to pay for them but decided that because he did not have the cash on him that he would steal them instead. He said that he felt stupid for trying to pass them to his friend because he didn’t want to get his friend in trouble. The other suspect confirmed the story. Both of the students are UA football players and the first suspect was cited for shoplifting and released on scene. A Dean of Students Office referral was completed for the shoplifting student, and the surveillance footage was placed into UAPD property as evidence.

Boyfriend tears through stop sign following tense talk

A UAPD officer stopped a male UA student chasing after a girl on his bike on March 23. The officer was on regular patrol at Cherry Avenue and University Boulevard when he saw a male student on a beach cruiser ride up the grass area on the side of the Meinel Optical Sciences building. The student rode across the sidewalk onto Cherry Avenue and rode southbound toward Arizona Stadium. It appeared to the officer thought that the man was trying to catch a female student who was already at the intersection of Cherry Avenue and Fourth Street. At the intersection, the man failed to stop for the stop sign and continued southbound. The officer caught up and stopped the man to ask why he was riding across the grass. He told the officer that he and his girlfriend were arguing and that he was trailing her on way home. The two of them were originally on the grass outside of the Meinel Optical Sciences building talking. After hearing the man’s statement, the officer caught up with the girlfriend, who more or less confirmed the man’s story. The officer gave the man a warning for failing to stop at the stop sign.

Repeat offender banned from dorms for not having escort

A regular non-UA affiliated visitor to Hopi Lodge Residence Hall was ejected from the hall on March 23. Around 6:40 p.m., a UAPD officer responded to the hall after a report of a man in a room without the resident present. Upon arriving, the officer found the community director speaking with the man inside the room. The officer recognized the man as the one who had attempted to stay in the hall during spring break. The community director was telling the man that although he was in the room with another Hopi Lodge resident, he couldn’t be in the room unless the actual resident of the room was with him. After explaining the rule, the director asked the man to gather his property to be escorted from the building. While the man was collecting his things, the officer spoke with the director. He said that he was told by a resident that the man had returned to the hall around 3 p.m. and again around 5:40 p.m. He checked the room where the man’s girlfriend lives. When he arrived, the door was open and the man was in the room with another resident. He asked for the whereabouts of the man’s girlfriend, the sole resident of the room, but she had just left the hall. Without the girlfriend present, though, the director informed him that he was in direct violation of UA Residence Life policy. Due to several incidents involving the man being inside the hall without an escort, the director informed him that he would not be allowed to return until given permission by UA Residence Life. The girlfriend returned to the room and said she thought it was OK for the man to be in her room accompanied by a hall resident. She said that she already had a meeting with Residence Life staff about the incident during spring break. The director informed her that he couldn’t be in her room, no matter how brief, without her presence. The man was escorted from the hall and told not to return until contacted by Residence Life to be invited back as a guest.

ASUA split on possible Elections Code changes

By Luke Money Arizona Daily Wildcat

ASUA presidential candidates Daniel Hernandez and James Allen say ASUA’s Elections Code needs to be re-evaluated in the wake of their disqualifications on March 9. But officials in the Associated Students of the University of Arizona differ on how, or if, the code should be changed. ASUA candidates are allowed nine violation checks under the code. Each election violation that is deemed to give a candidate an unfair advantage over another is charged with one check, and additional checks can be given depending on the severity of the violation. Hernandez and Allen each received 11 checks during the ASUA general election, though both are appealing to the ASUA Supreme Court. ASUA President Emily Fritze said she believes the check system needs to be re-evaluated. “We will take a serious look on what constitutes a check and how we handle evidence to see how we better serve the candidates and students to make sure this doesn’t happen again,” she said.

Fritze also said that the Elections Code should be updated often to ensure it remains current and fair. “I think that we will have to make changes,” she said. “We can never predict what will happen, but it seems that every year we must react to make changes to improve the code to ensure a fair election.” ASUA Elections Commissioner Michael Colletti said he does not believe the code needs to be changed and that he thought the new system of candidate slates brought additional challenges to the elections process. “I think that created a whole new aspect to elections,” he said. “But I don’t think the code or violation system needs restructuring.” Each candidate was required to attend a Mandatory Candidates Meeting, during which the ASUA Violation Guide was gone over in “great detail,” according to Colletti. Despite this, Hernandez said he believed that violations had been handedoutinconsistentlythroughout the course of the election. Hernandez also said he thinks the number of permissible election violations checks should be increased for candidates running on a slate, since if one member of that slate receives a check, every other slate

candidate is charged one as well. “It’s very easy for an entire slate to be disqualified with such a small number of checks allowed for slates,” he said. “We need to be looking at slates, how we clearly define them and how, monetarily, they can work together and have a little more freedom.” Allen called this year’s election a “clear indicator” that the Elections Code needs to be re-evaluated. “It will be a priority of mine to review the inefficiencies and ineffectiveness of the code, and revise it in a manner that ensures future elections results are arrived at following the utmost professional and democratic processes,” he wrote in an email. Allen stopped short of saying that the number of allowable checks should be increased, however.   “The entirety of the code needs to be critically reevaluated, including provisions regarding slate members and tickets,” he wrote. “Before narrowing our focus to individual parties of the elections process, questions regarding the criteria and issuance of checks, and the nature of the violations themselves, should be thoroughly reviewed.”

Elizabeth Mcroger The Joker

Are you visiting from Gotham City? Yeah I just flew in to burn down the city … No, I was just doing a theater workshop at The Rogue and I really needed Chipotle. I am now regretting not washing off this paint. So you don’t actually identically resemble the Joker? Unfortunately, no. I have a real face. I mean sometimes when I put on too much makeup, especially lipstick, this is what ends up happening. Where is Two Face? In hell! I cremated his ass. Tune in to the next Batman flick. Who plays the Two Face character in your own life? Wow … my sister. We are complete opposites yet are the exact same, if that makes sense. Together we would be destructive. It’s kind of like a Harry Potter and Voldemort type of relationship. Interesting analogy. So basically you want to kill your sister? (laughs) Well when you put it like that it makes me sound like a homicidal freak. Maybe it’s the Joker in you … I have learned today that I have a whole lotta’ Joker in me. Watch out Tucson.

Fitness gurus: Funny faces help you laugh off wrinkles No pain, no gain is just as true for people fighting wrinkles as it is for body builders pumping iron. There’s a breed of fitness instructors across the country teaching facial exercises to stave off droopy jowls and crow’s feet. One of the latest is in Brookline, Mass., where spa owner Lavinia Borcau recently started a five-session class called “From My Neck Up,” intended to iron out wrinkles and keep facial features taut, The Boston Globe reports.

answers to your ques�ons about sex and rela�onships Condom use among UA students who are sexually active is at an all-time high. 67% of students who have sexual intercourse usually or always use a condom. (2010 Health & Wellness Survey, N=2,931)


Does abstinence-only sex education have a negative effect on sexual health and awareness?

A. Abstinence-only curricula have been ineffective, based on what we know from published studies. Despite $1.5 billion in funding since 1998, these programs have failed to reduce sexually transmitted diseases (STDs), decrease teen pregnancy, or significantly delay sexual initiation among young people.1 Perhaps even more troubling, a review of thirteen abstinence-only programs found that eleven of them contained false, misleading, or distorted information, according to findings from a 2004 Congressional Report. Most Americans – parents, students, and health experts alike – support some form of comprehensive sex education that is medically accurate and age-appropriate. These programs include information on contraception, STDs, relationships, and decision-making; as well as emphasizing that abstinence is the only 100% effective option to prevent pregnancy and STDs. In contrast to abstinence-only programs, comprehensive sex ed programs have been shown to be effective by preventing STDs and unintended pregnancy without increasing

sexual initiation, the frequency of sex, or the number of sexual partners among those who participate in them. In fact, many comprehensive programs have been shown to delay or decrease sex, thereby reducing risk. Although the U.S. has one of the highest teen pregnancy rates among developed countries, a significant drop in the teen birth rate occurred from 1991-2004, much of it attributed to the improved use of contraception.2 These results support the fact that providing accurate and complete information allows individuals to make more informed decisions... not unlike the goal of this column.

In three of its four games, Arizona did make that clutch shot to survive and play another day in the NCAA Tournament. This side of a close one stung immediately. Williams walked out of the locker room with teary red eyes. Kyle Fogg buried his head in his uniform in the corner like a statue. And Horne took several minutes to speak. He sat motionless facing an empty locker. The first reporter who asked Horne to talk was turned down. Arizona’s sports information director chatted with Horne for a bit and then he opened up. In reality, it was too soon to ask anything. It was way too soon to comprehend what had just happened and articulate it with composure.

He can be reached at or on Twitter @wildcathoops. “I have no doubt Miller will eventually bring a national championship to Arizona,” said junior Kyle Fogg, who sat in the locker room after the UConn loss with his jersey over his face. A realization swept over Fogg, who ended up at Arizona through the tumultuous recruiting efforts of the final years of the Lute Olson era. He has one last chance to make a run through the tournament. “It hurts because you never know when you can possibly make it this far,” Fogg said. “I’m going to take this week off and work as hard as I’ve ever worked, get back in the gym and see what we can do next season.” that situation.” Horne sat in the locker room afterward, staring blankly at his locker before he would take off his Arizona jersey for the last time. “We knew we were fortunate to come out of those games that we won. We knew it would be that type of game,” Horne said. “Being on the other side of it sucks. It’s all over.”

With 24 conference games left for the Wildcats, they aren’t ready to hang their heads quite yet, but both Bandy and Lopez agree that the team has some improving to do. “We’ve got to get better,” Bandy said. “We’ve got to get tougher and just try to work even harder.” The Wildcats are set to face the New Mexico Lobos at home in a two-game series starting on Tuesday and will resume conference play next weekend. “They’ll use this (past) weekend as a teaching aide,” Lopez said. “They will get better for Tuesday, Wednesday and then this coming weekend against Oregon State.”

But Horne did — taking it hard on himself — and eventually the rest of the team realized that one missed shot didn’t define this season. Fans on Twitter said they couldn’t have asked for a better season. People called it unforgettable, uplifting, spectacular, amazing, miraculous and more. Arizona exceeded all expectations and played in an Elite Eight with house money and maximum heart. “I think everyone in the room knows I’ve got to make that shot,” he said. “It’s just going to be hard to sleep on that for a while.” Tonight, maybe it is tough to sleep on. Maybe it’ll be tough tomorrow, too, or next week watching the Final Four on television or next month when Derrick Williams decides if he’ll leave early for the NBA Draft. But eventually all Arizona fans will sleep well knowing this team won 30 games, captured a Pacific 10 Conference title and advanced to the Elite Eight by beating Duke this season. Because that’s really what people will remember about Horne’s senior year.

Back in business

Wildcats’ new attitude helps lead to sweep of Matadors By Nicole Dimtsios Arizona Daily Wildcat The Arizona Wildcats softball team is in the midst of a total program mindset change right before the Pacific 10 Conference season starts. After what third baseman Brigette Del Ponte called a “reality check” at the Judi Garman Classic, head coach Mike Candrea sat down with each player individually and asked for a change. “I basically told them the other day, I want you to look at this as a job because it is a job,” Candrea said. “We’re giving you $150,000 to get an education, damn it, we expect something in return. “I think basically it was kind of the nutshell,” he said. “What are you doing to help this team get out of this funk?” The Wildcats answered the call during its final weekend of non-conference play against the California State University, Northridge Matadors, sweeping the series in run-ruled games 8-0 on Friday, 10-1 on Saturday and 16-5 on Sunday. In the process of the total program upheaval, Arizona altered anything it could to change its approach. The Wildcats altered their mentality, their cheering style and even how they prepare for games. Sophomore pitcher Kenzie Fowler used a blue headband color for the fist time ever as a Wildcat. She also donned eye black on Friday night when she threw a combined no-hitter with fellow pitcher Shelby Babcock. In addition to the accessory changes, Fowler is also making adjustments to her pitching style — again.

Chitwood shines in NCAA’s By Kelly Hultgren Arizona Daily Wildcat

Sophomore third baseman Brigette Del Ponte rounds the bases after homering over the weekend in Arizona’s three-game sweep of California State University, Northridge.

“I’m just tweaking it a little to see what feels good for me at this point,” she said. “I’ve kind of struggled finding myself the last few weeks, so it felt good (on Friday).” The Arizona dugout was noticeably louder throughout the weekend and mirrored a small arm motion each Wildcat batter performed after recording a hit. “We’re playing with excitement,” Del Ponte said. “We’re using more swag. It was just something we needed.” Although the Wildcats’ changes may seem trivial, they’re working. The Wildcats hit eight home runs by five different players highlighted by Kristen Arriola and Baillie Kirker’s grand slams in the first inning of Sunday’s game. Every Wildcat starter had at least

one hit on the weekend, something that was visibly missing from the Arizona stat line last weekend. With conference play close on the horizon, Candrea said the change was both necessary and effective during the weekend series with the Matadors. “The game is played between the lines and one of the big parts of it is the passion you have for the game,” Candrea said. “You can’t lose that.”

Chambers watch

The senior catcher needs just six more home runs to break the Arizona record for home runs and 12 to break the NCAA-all time record. Chambers hit her 80th career home run on Friday against the Matadors. She is just the fifth all-time player to reach the 80 home run milestone.


The Arizona men’s swimming and diving team took fourth place at the 2011 NCAA Championships in Minneapolis on Saturday, but the highlight came in an individual performance. For the second year in a row, junior captain Cory Chitwood became the NCAA champion in the 200-yard backstroke. Despite Chitwood being the favorite, the race went down to the wire. His main competition, Indiana’s Eric Ress, was neck and neck with Chitwood up until the last eight hundredths of a second, when Chitwood just barely hit the wall before him. “Before the race, I was just nervous and I think I was probably more nervous for this 200 back than I was for last year’s back,” Chitwood said. “I guess I just felt a little more pressure trying to defend the title. In the race, I just wanted to go out with the guy that was next to me. I knew he would go out fast.” Like Chitwood, Ress is also a national champion in the 200-meter backstroke, except Ress won his in France. Chitwood was fully aware of Ress’ credentials. “I also knew he was an experienced 200 backstroker,” he said. “He’s a French national champion, so I just wanted to go out head to head with that guy and put myself in the race, and see what I could do in the last

50 meters. Luckily it turned out good for me.” Chitwood’s win was his favorite moment of the weekend, he said, and it helped mask the disappointment he and his team felt on the second day of competition when the Wildcats fell behind. “Day two was sort of rough for the whole team,” Chitwood said. “We didn’t swim as well as we wanted to at finals, but you know the NCAA’s, there were three days and six sessions of swimming. It’s a roller coaster, so there are lots of ups and downs, it’s a crazy meet so you just have to ride it out and see what happens.” After the second day of competition, where Chitwood received All-American honors for the 100 backstroke for placing sixth in the race, he recalled the importance of putting the race behind him, even with his awarded honor. “You’ve got to put each session behind you, that was the past and I had to get over it and concentrate on my 200 back and see what I could do,” Chitwood said. In regards to how the team finished overall, Chitwood is a proud captain. “For us to get wood and be in fourth place is pretty unreal,” Chitwood said. “Our team’s so young, and for us to get fourth place is pretty awesome. “I couldn’t be more proud of the guys.”

Wildcats burned by Devils in first Pac-10 series By Dan Kohler Arizona Daily Wildcat It was a rough start to Pacific 10 Conference play for the No. 15 Arizona baseball team as it dropped two out of three against the No. 6 ASU Sun Devils during the weekend in Tempe. Despite winning the Friday match up, the Wildcats (17-7, 1-2 Pac-10) fell hard in Saturday’s 5-1 loss and couldn’t get the

confidence back to secure the rubber match win on Sunday in an 8-1 loss. “With the start of the Pac-10 season, it’s like I told the guys, every weekend of Pac10 play is a grind,” said head coach Andy Lopez. “Its not a very easy conference. You’ve got to be really good, and you’ve got to outplay your opponents. In many ways, you have to be mentally tougher than your opponents, especially on the road.” For what has been a dominant Arizona

offense since the start of the season, averaging more than seven runs per game, the Wildcats only managed 2.3 per game during the weekend. “Obviously, scoring more than one run is key,” Lopez said. “You’re going to have to pitch the lights out if you’re only going to score one run, that’s one thing that we need to make a jump on.” On Sunday, Arizona starter Tyler Hale looked tough through seven innings until a

two-run home run off the bat of ASU’s (186, 2-1) Austin Barnes opened the floodgates for the Sun Devil offense. “We really did not look very strong mentally in that eighth inning,” Lopez said. “A lot of errors, some physical mistakes and some mental mistakes as well, it’s a little disappointing.” The series got off to a hot start for the BASEBALL, page 12

Wildcats miss ultimate dream but still surpass all expectations

COMMENTARY BY Bryan Roy sports writer

Most everyone in the building thought it was going in. “That’s how the game is sometimes,” said forward Kevin Parrom, who had a good look at the final shot from the bench. “It looked good from where I was.” “I thought it was going in honestly,” said UConn guard Kemba Walker, who scored 20 points, including the deciding 64 and 65th points on a jumper over the outstretched arms of Williams. “He (Horne) had just hit a big shot, and everything was in slow motion.” But it rimmed out, and Horne stood frozen in the right corner of the floor as the Huskies poured

ANAHEIM, Calif. — Ten years from now, Jamelle Horne might wake up in the middle of the night in a cold sweat. What if I had made that shot? By then he might have a wife and children. He might even coach their youth basketball teams. Maybe Horne visits McKale Center for a game and proudly smiles when the 3D Jumbotron catches him sitting courtside for a standing ovation. Maybe while he’s looking up, the banners grab his eye and it’s Sean Miller’s Final Four teams from 2013 to 2019 — the year before he left to coach at Pittsburgh. Maybe he wonders if 2011 should be up there. “That’s literally a shot you dream about taking,” Horne said after the game. “If I could take away one thing, it would be making that shot.” Down by two points, Arizona needed one basket for a trip to the Final Four. Derrick Williams launched a 3-pointer with eight seconds left to give Arizona enough time for an offensive rebound and second game-winner attempt. Williams missed and the ball bounced around the congested key. Horne wound up with it in the same spot he had made the prior clutch 3-pointer a few possessions earlier. “The ball just found me there,” Horne said. “This is going up. Miss or make, I knew it was a great shot. “I had a great look at it. It felt great,” he added. “It looked like

Junior guard Kyle Fogg buries his head in his jersey after Arizona’s 65-63 loss to UConn in the Elite Eight on Saturday in Anaheim, Calif. The Wildcats fell just short of advancing to the Final Four when senior Jamelle Horne’s 3-pointer bounced off the rim as time expired. Arizona finished the season with a record of 30-8.

Only explanation for loss is not making the shots that counted By Kevin Zimmerman ARIZONA DAILY WILDCAT ANAHEIM, Calif. — Aside from conjuring up the idea of an extraordinary buzzer-beater, Arizona players couldn’t summon up any explanations for their 65-63 loss to the UConn Huskies. They simply didn’t make the shots that counted, finishing with a 39 percent shooting average and falling in Saturday’s Elite Eight game at the Honda Center, the third loss out of three tries in the Wildcats’ history of playing in the Anaheim Regional Final. And the Wildcats (30-8) especially didn’t hit the two big shots

in the final eight seconds. “We didn’t hit a lot of shots that we normally hit,” said forward Derrick Williams, who led Arizona with 20 points despite first-half foul trouble. “That’s what it comes down to.” On the game’s final play with Arizona down 65-63, head coach Sean Miller called guard Kyle Fogg’s number. One of the few players shooting the ball well Saturday, Miller wanted to go for the game-winning 3-pointer had it been open, a two if it wasn’t. The Huskies covered Fogg well off a high stagger screen. UConn over-helped on Williams, and, instead of running a pick-and-roll with Fogg, forced him to step

outside the 3-point line. Williams took a 3-pointer with about eight seconds on the clock but missed with enough time for his team to have a second attempt. “I think Derrick (Williams) felt like his man helped a lot, and he popped out,” Miller said. “It’s hard to argue with that. He missed it. And what you hope many times is you get a second shot, and we did.” Senior Jamelle Horne helped tap the offensive rebound to Fogg, who drove into the lane and kicked to Horne. He had drifted to the ring wing — the same place he had hit a 3-pointer with 1:02 left that brought the Wildcats within two points.

Arizona’s rebirth

Miller’s second year exceeds expectations, places them higher By Kevin Zimmerman ARIZONA DAILY WILDCAT ANAHEIM, Calif. — The rebuilding is over. Coming after a 16-15 season that marked how much of a ground-up project the Arizona basketball program needed, a 2010-11 Elite Eight run put the Wildcats back on the winning track faster than even those within the program expected. And while a 65-63 loss to UConn put an end to the Wildcats’ season, it also gave a glimpse of what the future might hold. Sean Miller ’s second season as Arizona’s head basketball coach produced the second-highest win total in school history. “It wasn’t too long ago we were 16-15,” Miller said. “And to be where we were, a shot to go to the Final Four, 30-8, it will probably feel better in a few weeks than it does now. “But I’ve never been prouder of a team, and I’ve never seen a team come so far as

we did in a short period of time.” Coming into the NCAA Tournament as a No. 5 seed, the Wildcats had a mixed bag of success and failure. They had played top-25 teams like Kansas and Washington tough in the regular season, but had baffling losses in blowouts against BYU and UCLA. At Arizona, Miller’s only win against a ranked opponent was against then-No. 24 Washington last season. Going into the NCAA Tournament, there was no signature victory, one that would announce the Wildcats’ legitimacy and climb back to elite status. Facing four of college basketball’s known powers in the NCAA and beating three, that all changed. Only the overly outspoken — see Charles Barkley, Southern California coach Kevin O’Neill and Ellen DeGeneres — picked UA to go any further than onewin deep in the tournament. Nobody believed them.

After a difficult 77-75 grind-out win against No. 12 seed Memphis in Tulsa, Okla., the Wildcats weren’t favored to beat a physical Texas Longhorn team. “People really didn’t believe in us,” said forward Jesse Perry, a junior transfer in his first year at Arizona. “We really don’t care too much about that. We just wanted to come out and show to ourselves we could do this. But Arizona did beat Texas in a 70-69 affair to advance to the Sweet 16, where they would face No. 1 seed and reigning national champion Duke. There, they exacted revenge on the Blue Devils, who beat Arizona in the 2001 National Championship game. Handily beating Duke 93-77 in Anaheim, Calif., gave the Wildcats an Elite Eight game with UConn — two missed 3-pointers in the final possession robbed Arizona of a Final Four appearance. “You just talk about quick turnaround REBIRTH, page 12

Williams mum on future, NBA Draft status


ANAHEIM, Calif. — Derrick Williams could be the No. 1 overall pick in this summer’s NBA Draft. Scouts love his athletic ability and fans love his Blake Griffin-caliber dunks. National exposure from this NCAA Tournament allowed Williams’ draft stock to soar on the radar of those East Coast hoopsters unable to watch him on a nightly basis. After Arizona’s loss in the Elite Eight, the media asked him the obligatory question. He provided the obligatory response. “I’m not answering that,” Williams said softly outside his locker. “I have

school. That’s all I can say.” lists Williams as the projected No. 1 pick to the Cleveland Cavaliers. and DraftExpress. com list him as No. 2. The headline on right now asks: “Can Derrick Williams add another No. 1 to his résumé in the 2011 NBA draft after taking down Duke?” But Williams didn’t want to hear it. “I want to win a national championship. We came two points shy of a Final Four. Of course I want to win it next year.” UA coach Sean Miller said after the game he would do what is in Williams’ best interest and support his decision either way.

If Arizona fans want to hang on one strand of hope to see William’s junior season, it’s all on his mother, who has kept him humble and hungry. At media day last November, Williams said his mother would fly out to Tucson had if she sensed a bad attitude. “He talks about it: ‘I better not be cocky to the media or say something too smart because mom might read it and come out here,’” Jamelle Horne said about Williams relationship with his mother. “She does not play, for real.” Ex-Wildcats Jordan Hill and Chase Budinger both left school after their junior years to enter the NBA Draft in 2009. Prior to that, UA freshman Jerryd Bayless (who would be a senior this season) left early for the 2008 Draft.
