Hotline persists despite cuts

Poison control, baby advice at risk of closing By Samantha Munsey ARIZONA DAILY WILDCAT At the health call centers located inside the UA College of Pharmacy, it’s not uncommon to hear medical experts talk to frightened mothers and concerned pet owners about medication and exposure. But due to federal and state budgets providing one percent of its funding to call centers , services like the Arizona Poison and Drug Information Center and the Arizona Pregnancy Riskline are now feeling the squeeze. “A lot of the stuff we do here is a labor of love, nobody pays for it. And of course labor of love after a while goes away,” said Dr. F. Mazda Shirazi, who is the medical director of the Poison and Drug Information Center. Since its formation in 1955 by a College of Pharmacy doctor who specialized in toxicology, the Arizona Poison and Drug Information Center has been providing a 24-hour hotline to answer phone calls from all over the state of Arizona. At the call center, special medical experts can provide information about drug and animal exposures including rattlesnake bites and proper medicine doses for children. On average, the center receives 65,000 calls a year. “It’s a pretty cheap service for what we provide,” Shirazi said. “I would say a majority of our patients that call, we follow them (to make sure they are OK).” He went on to say that despite pressure to cut back on funding, the hotline will remain open and still will be taking calls in the future. This, however, cannot be said for the Arizona Pregnancy Riskline. Also located in the College of Pharmacy, the riskline specializes in answering questions about exposures for pregnant and breastfeeding women. “We get called about really anything that a pregnant woman might be concerned about,” said Dee Quinn, who is the founder and director of the riskline since 1999. The riskline center lost its funding from the state Legislature in 2009 due to budget cuts. As a result, phone lines are open five days a week, Monday through Friday from 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. “We hope to be here in the future (but) our funding is gone,” Quinn said. “We hope that we are still here to manage the phones, this is my main goal at the moment.” Despite cutbacks, both call centers are still trying to inform people of their services. With an effort to reach the tech-savvy and provide health information to a younger audience, both centers are providing new features online and on smart phones. POISON, page 7

Mark Novak, a landscape architect with UA Planning, Design and Construction, discusses the project plan with Mike Delahanty, senior program coordinator with UA Parking and Transportation Services, during the Tyndall Avenue Improvement Project open house on Thursday. This project will widen the road and add crosswalks and bike paths on Tyndall Avenue between University Boulevard and Sixth Street.

Tyndall Avenue gets revamp By Eliza Molk ARIZONA DAILY WILDCAT

Parking and Transportation Services held and open house for the Tyndall Avenue Improvement Project, which will reconstruct the roadway between University Boulevard and Sixth Street to better accommodate vehicle, bicycle and pedestrian traffic. The project, which will begin construction on April 18, is projected to take up to four months to complete and will widen and re-pave the road, add crosswalks, a bike path, curbs to the sidewalks and new landscaping on Tyndall Avenue between University Boulevard and Sixth Street. Joe Chase, field engineering project manager of the Tyndall Avenue Improvement Project, said that “all heavy work” will take place after the semester ends, and that access to all local businesses and to UA facilities will not be impeded, with the exception of Tyndall Avenue Parking Garage, which will only be accessible off Euclid Avenue. Some of the open house attendees had concerns about construction noise, and

Best-selling author visits UA By John Kuells ARIZONA DAILY WILDCAT

Best-selling author Dr. Cornel West will be speaking at Centennial Hall at 7 p.m. His speech entitled “Borders to Democracy,” will look at issues such as race and immigration and how these aspects of diversity have an effect on the nation. West, a Princeton professor who gained national attention for his analytical look at racism in his book “Race Matters,” will speak as part of a “Who Draws the Line? Social Justice Perspectives on Diversity” series. According to Amanda Tachine, program director of Native American Student Affairs, West is the capstone speaker for this lecture series, which deals with issues of social justice. Tachine said this is

a very relevant and timely topic that can help students to better understand issues of diversity as it pertains to their lives. The appearance was made possible by a combined effort of diversity groups on campus, including Native American Student Affairs, African American Student Affairs, Asian Pacific American Student Affairs, ChicanoHispano Student Affairs, LGBTQ Affairs, Women’s Resource Center, as well as aid from the Tohono O’odham Nation , Student Service Fee, UofA Bookstores, the Office of the President and the Dean of Students Office. The event is free and open to the public and will feature a question-and-answer segment after the lecture in Centennial Hall has concluded. Doors open at 6 p.m. and the event will run until 8:30 p.m.

although Chase said that he and his team would notify surrounding businesses and housing developments when concrete would be poured before its planned 7 a.m. start time, construction can be noisy and they “can’t do much about that.” Amanda Brobbel, the coordinator of graduate and international student housing, said that there was a lot of construction last year around the La Aldea graduate housing complex and it “really impeded” at the end of May before graduate students moved out. She explained that they had to open a back gate that opened out to the street, which was a fire hazard. “It’s not OK,” she said. “These are apartments, not dorms, and the students have furniture.” She added that although they “worked it out” in the end, she had to address construction problems more than once. Bruce Billings, the president of the Campus Christian Center, said that the project was “long overdue,” although he expressed concern that the project would not be addressing the alleys. He gave an example of the alley behind

the Louise F. Marshall building, saying it was a “horrible mess” and that it needs to be “totally redone.” Construction will occur every Monday through Friday from 7 a.m. to 5:30 p.m., with occasional night and weekend construction. Once the existing roadway pavement has been removed, vehicular traffic will be restricted to one-way travel in a single lane. The project will cost $452,742.50, according to the City of Tucson Department of Transportation. The funding for the project “just now became available,” according to Chase, and the idea of the project has “been in the works for eight years.” The funding comes from a transportation enhancement grant using stimulus funds.

Allen disqualified; ASUA declares special election By Luke Money ARIZONA DAILY WILDCAT

decision to the ASUA Supreme Court. Allen recently told the Daily Wildcat he would not appeal should Colletti uphold his disqualification. Colletti reinstated the candidacy of the other presidential candidate Daniel Hernandez, urging checks to be removed as he did not deem his violations to “be severely detrimental to the election process.” “Finally, the Supreme Court case revealed there certainly are some changes to make for next year,” Colletti wrote. “The court raises valid points of contention over what the standard of evidence is, and how we go about investigating complaints we receive. We shall re-evaluate going forward.” The special election date has been set for Tuesday, April 19.

ASUAElections Commissioner Michael Colletti decided not to reinstate the candidacy status of James Allen, the top recipient of votes in the ASUA general election that ended March 9. “I have deemed Mr. Allen’s actions to be severely detrimental to the election process, and therefore cannot ethically reinstate his candidacy status,” Colletti wrote in a statement to the Associated Students of the University of Arizona Clerk of the Court. “Therefore, a special election must occur to keep the integrity of the elections intact.” Allen’s continued disqualification means that a special election for ASUA president will have to be held in the coming weeks, unless Allen chooses to appeal Colletti’s

Device offers benefits for quadriplegics UA center technology allows patients to breathe without help of ventilator

By Michelle Weiss Arizona Daily Wildcat The Arizona Health Sciences Center is the first in Arizona to implant a device that will allow certain quadriplegic patients to breathe on their own. The diaphragm stimulator device is intended for those who have suffered high spinal cord injuries, or high quads, meaning quadriplegics who are a C1 to C5, said Dr. Narong Kulvantunyou, a trauma surgeon at the Arizona Health Sciences Center. These numbers represent the vertebrae of the cervical spine. High quads are totally dependent on other people, he said. They usually have had an experience of trauma to the spine and cannot move their arms and legs. C3 up to C5 is the location of the nerve that controls the diaphragm, Kulvantunyou said. “If you injure anything above that, your breathing muscle may be affected, which means there’s a high likelihood that you will depend on a breathing machine,” he said. The higher up the cervical vertebrae, the more likely someone will need to be permanently on a ventilator, Kulvantunyou said. C1 is the highest. Because of these kinds of injuries, they cannot make their diaphragms contract on their own, he said. With the diaphragm stimulator device, quadriplegics are able to imitate natural breathing. The device provides electrical stimulation. An electrode wire is placed in the diaphragm on both sides and is connected to the machine to allow for contractions, he said. The battery for the device lasts for about 25 days. The device, which was approved in 2008, has been placed in patients worldwide. Since then, over 300 have been implanted, Kulvantunyou said. “We just happen to be the first in the state of Arizona,” he said. Synapse Biomedical Inc., the company that created the diaphragm stimulator, officially known as the NeuRx Diaphragm Pacing System, has centers around the country, he said. “They have some video of a patient who used to be on a breathing

machine, and able to come off the breathing machine because of this device,” Kulvantunyou said. Kulvantunyou said that 70 percent of people come off of the breathing machine completely after using the device. The other 30 percent choose not to, or do not do so for insurance reasons. If a patient comes off the ventilator completely, insurance takes away 24 hours of nursing care, he said, so some people don’t want to come off it completely. Some people are more active during the day, so they will go off the machine. At night, they go back on the machine, he said. “The fundamental difference between breathing on a machine versus breathing on your own is breathing on a machine is composited breathing,” he said. Besides quadriplegics being able to breathe on their own, there are other benefits the machine offers, Kulvantunyou said. “Obviously, you’re not hooked up to a machine, and that’s the number one benefit,” he said. “So, you are more mobile, you have more freedom to get around, even though the breathing machine is not as big as what you see in the hospital.” The device offers a better quality of life for quadriplegics because they have an improved life expectancy and they will not get as many pneumonia infections per year,

Kulvantunyou said. The device can also be used for patients with other conditions. Amyotrophic lateral sclerosis, commonly known as Lou Gehrig’s disease, is now being considered, he said. “They’re basically becoming ventilator dependant because their diaphragm muscle is weakened,” he said. “So as their disease gets worse, they cannot breathe.” The disease is similar to quadriplegia and the device helps extend the time before one becomes ventilator dependent. In the U.S., 11,000 people become high quads each year, Kulvantunyou said. 500 of them will become dependent on a ventilator to breathe. “Once they come off the breathing machine, they sometimes can eat and drink,” he said, “For sure they have a better sense of smell, so they can enjoy life.” If doctors are able to get quadriplegics in Arizona off the breathing machine, the patients won’t have to go out of state to a special center and they can stay close to their families, he said. Before the device was approved, doctors used to have to wait a year before implanting the device, Kulvantunyou said. “Now we understand that the sooner we put it in, the better that it will work for the patient,” he said.

Best Buddies club urges ending use of ‘R-word’ By Eliza Molk Arizona Daily Wildcat The University of Arizona Best Buddies, a club that promotes the rights of individuals with disabilities, is raising awareness to eliminate the derogatory use of the word “retarded.” The club, reestablished earlier this month, stems from the nonprofit organization that creates opportunities for one-to-one friendships, integrated employment and leadership development for people with intellectual and developmental disabilities. Thursday, they had a table on the UA Mall where students could pledge to support the elimination of the derogatory use of the “R-word” from everyday speech and promote the acceptance of people with intellectual disabilities. Janelle Moore, a freshman majoring in special education and a creator of Best Buddies at UA, said that the idea behind the campaign to eliminate the derogatory use of the word “retarded” is to promote equality. “When people use the word retarded, they use it as a slur,” she said. “It creates a negative stereotype for people with disabilities, and it is our job to realize that it’s not okay. Disabled people can’t always stand up for themselves.” Moore explained that creating awareness for the cause is the best place to start because when people begin talking about it, they begin thinking about it, even if they don’t agree with it. Brad Efune, a pre-business freshman and another one of the club’s creators, said he has never understood why people use the word “retarded” synonymously with the word “stupid.” “Just because someone is different, you don’t have to marginalize them,” he said. Efune said that the campaign was a good start to fight ignorance, and by informing and educating his friends about the hurt behind the word “retarded,” they could pass that information along to others. Once people in the UA community pledge to support the

club’s campaign, the group will send the signatures to the Special Olympics and Best Buddies International, who received about 7 million signatures last year, according to Efune. The UA is one of five colleges campaigning to eliminate the “R-word.” The UA club meets once a month in addition to mandatory buddy hangouts at least twice a month. Efune explained that activities can be as simple as getting lunch together or seeing a movie. “Just being with the person and creating a friendship is the most important,” he said.

Farrakhan defends ‘brother’ Gadhafi McClatchy Tribune CHICAGO — Warning that death and destruction was on America’s doorstep because of its arrogance and oppression of “God’s chosen people,” Minister Louis Farrakhan, the controversial Nation of Islam leader, defended “Brother Leader Moammar Gadhafi” and called the U.S. action in Libya hypocrisy. The more than two-hour news conference was held at Mosque Maryam, the international headquarters of the Nation of Islam, bought in 1972 with a $3 million loan from Gadhafi. “It is a terrible thing for me to hear my brother called all these ugly and filthy names when I can’t recognize him as that,” Farrakhan said to the crowd of members who also attended the news conference. “Even though the current tide is moving against him ... how can I refuse to raise my voice in his defense? Why would I back down from those who have given so much?” But it was scenes from earthquake- and tsunami-ravaged Japan, Farrakhan said, that inspired him to speak up and warn the American people about the coming earthquake that will strike as punishment for America’s arrogance. “A major earthquake is on the way to you and me and us,” he said. “Death and destruction is at the door of all of us, and we are worst prepared than the Japanese.” Farrakhan cautioned President Barack

Obama that he was being used as a pawn to oppress his own people. He insisted several times that Jews controlled the media and had pressured Obama to take socalled humanitarian action in Libya, but not in other places such as Gaza. “The stupid mistake we make is assuming the president is the supreme power,” he said. “The mad dogs are growling and grinding in Washington, D.C.,” referring to Gadhafi’s nickname “Mad Dog of the Middle East.” He commended former White House correspondent Helen Thomas for her honesty and candor in recent controversial remarks about Israel’s occupation of territory claimed by Palestinians. And he commended Gadhafi for plans to nationalize Libya’s oil program to benefit his own people. Farrakhan got into hot water in 1996 when he launched a “friendship tour” of Muslim nations in the Middle East and Africa. He was criticized for meeting with Gadhafi in Tripoli, where Farrakhan alleged U.S. injustices against Muslim nations. The following year, Gadhafi, addressed Nation of Islam members via satellite, lauding Farrakhan for being a “courageous freedom fighter” who not only galvanized blacks at the Million Man March in Washington, D.C., in 1995, but also sparked unity rallies in Islamic communities around the world.

Unarmed rebels lounge near the western gate to Ajdabiya, Libya, on Thursday. Only a handful of rebel fighters took positions on the road from Ajdabiya to Benghazi, even as loyalist forces were poised to push toward the opposition capital.

Pentagon pulls fighters, planes from Libya McClatchy Tribune WASHINGTON — The Pentagon said it would soon withdraw fighters and ground attack planes from the North Atlantic Treaty Organization-led air campaign in Libya, a move that U.S. lawmakers warned could make the airstrikes less effective in preventing Col. Moammar Gadhafi’s forces from attacking opposition-held areas. But the U.S. is keeping combat aircraft, including AC-130s and A-10 ground attacks planes, on “standby” in case the operation’s Canadian commander, Lt. Gen Charles Bouchard, requests U.S. help, said Adm. Mike Mullen, the chairman of the joint chiefs Thursday. He he said the U.S. is not ruling out sending U.S. warplanes back into the air over Libya if NATO proved ineffective at halting Gadhafi’s forces from advancing.

The Obama administration has planned since the air campaign began two weeks ago for U.S. forces to shift to a support role, while warplanes from European allies assumed the bulk of the combat sorties. But with Gadhafi’s troops regaining the offensive against beleaguered rebels, it has deepened questions about whether NATO can handle the mission without U.S firepower. “Your timing is exquisite,” a sarcastic Sen. John McCain, R-Ariz., warned Defense Secretary Robert M. Gates at an Armed Services Committee hearing. “At a time when the Gadhafi forces have literally, tragically, routed the anti-Gadhafi forces, that’s when we announced that the United States was abdicating its leadership role and is removing some of the most valuable assets that could be used to great effect.”

Ex-beer baron faces wrongful death suit McClatchy Tribune ST. LOUIS COUNTY, Mo. — A wrongfuldeath lawsuit filed Thursday against exbeer baron August Busch IV over the accidental drug overdose death of a woman at his mansion set off a fight within her family over who has the right to pursue damages for her young son. The case, filed in St. Louis County Circuit Court, claims Busch was negligent in the death of his girlfriend, Adrienne Martin, 27, and seeks unspecified damages for her son, Blake Alexander Martin, age 8. The child’s father, Dr. Kevin Martin, is a plaintiff on his son’s behalf. Christine Trampler, Adrienne Martin’s mother, told the St. Louis Post-Dispatch later in the day that she plans to intervene because she fears the friendship between

Busch and Kevin Martin could color the outcome for her grandson. “I am going to be applying for custody of Blake and ask that a guardian ad litem (independent legal guardian) immediately be appointed for Blake for purposes of this wrongful death suit,” said Trampler, who lives in Springfield, Mo. She said she is working with New York lawyer John Q. Kelly, who has developed a high profile representing the mother of Natalee Holloway, the girl missing in Aruba, and the estate of Nicole Brown Simpson in a civil suit against O.J. Simpson. Kelly could not be reached for comment. Kevin Martin has said since his ex-wife’s death that he and Busch were “almost like brothers.” On Thursday, Martin said he could not comment, on advice of his counsel, John P. Heisserer, of Cape Girardeau.

EDITORIAL ASUA, your ridiculous is showing


ollege kids have short attention spans. We leap from window to window on computer screens, condense our thoughts into short status updates and 140 characters, get bored half an hour into an hour-long class. So the fact that the Associated Students of the University of Arizona presidential election has dragged on for nearly a month means we’re done. It was interesting. Then we ran out of tequila over spring break. By the time we switched to vodka, it was old news. So this editorial would probably be easier and faster to read and write if it were just a bullet pointed shit list of everything that is wrong with ASUA. • It sucks. • No one cares. • Only people in ASUA care. • They don’t care about anything I care about. • It’s inefficient, careless and just really quite annoying. • When it’s not annoying, it’s just boring. • It sucks. These are all arguably true points, depending on your perspective, which is to say, depending on whether you’re inside or outside of ASUA. But they simplify the issues. Calling ASUA a “flawed organization” hardly does its problems justice. ASUA elections continue to flounder. Meanwhile, tonight we can look forward to hanging out on the UA Mall, watching it “light up with the hope of hundreds when student musicians and artists, living and learning in the vibrant Tucson community, have the opportunity to showcase their individuality.” This cheesy, overwrought prose is brought to you by Tanzbodeli, Sen. Taylor Bilby’s pet project. Despite a perfectly admirable goal of raising funds for breast cancer research, a “music and art festival” that relies on pretty flowers and quotes by Bono on Tumblr feels like a cheap distraction. Here’s another list of problems: • The problems of the ASUA presidential election • Shenanigans resulting from ASUA’s Elections Code • ASUA’s Elections Code • The disqualification of both candidates • The misunderstood reach of the Family and Educational Rights Privacy Act • The back-and-forth, he-said-shesaid nature of the ASUA Supreme Court hearings • Elections Commissioner Michael Colletti’s bizarre determination to uphold the disqualification of James Allen, despite the court’s ruling According to Colletti’s written statement to ASUA’s Supreme Court, Allen’s actions were “severely detrimental to the election process” and therefore it would be unethical to reinstate his candidacy status. ASUA will have to hold a special election to “keep the integrity of the elections intact,” Colletti wrote. Colletti is fully within his rights to uphold Allen’s disqualification, as the Elections Code’s Violation Guide gives him a broad ability to decide to disqualify candidates for certain violations. This does not mean Colletti is justified; it just means an earlier and equally thoughtless manifestation of ASUA gave him powers he shouldn’t have. Why bother having an ASUA Supreme Court if an appointed official (and we’re playing fast and loose with that term) can just ignore its rulings? Basically, what is the point of any of this? This is starting to feel like a comedy sketch. More accurately, it’s like a drawnout, awkward stand-up comedy routine where no one in the audience is laughing. How much longer can this go on? With just a few weeks left to go until the end of the semester, who will be concerned with voting in an ASUA special election? A “music and art festival” sounds like way more fun, but it would be great if ASUA tackled its own problems before it tried to approach cancer. — Editorials are determined by the Daily Wildcat editorial board and written by one of its members.

Legislature reveals its real view of Latinos Nyles Kendall Arizona Daily Wildcat


ast week Republican and Democratic state senators joined forces to defeat two anti-immigration bills that would have abolished birth right citizenship and required Arizona’s public schools to black-list Latino students suspected of being undocumented. Republican Sen. Lori Klein of Anthem, Ariz., who supported both pieces of legislation, decided to use an offensive and racially-tinged email by a Glendale substitute teacher to justify her vote. The man describes his experience in a classroom where he claims students — “almost all Hispanic and a couple of black children”— ripped up their textbooks and refused to speak in English. According to the email, which Klein read out loud, most Latino students “do not want to be educated but rather be gang members and gangsters. They hate America and are determined to reclaim this area for Mexico.” The author then spouts off a diatribe against illegal immigration, which he believes is turning Arizona into “a third world country,”

and concludes by applauding Arizona Senate President Russell Pearce’s “efforts to stop this invasion into our state.” Pearce, who was apparently delighted to know his efforts were appreciated, forwarded the email to his Republican colleagues days earlier. But neither Pearce nor Klein took the time to verify the letter’s authenticity before they used it to buttress their antiimmigrant stance. Glendale Elementary School District investigated the substitute teacher’s allegations and said they are grossly inaccurate. Pearce, who has remained silent on whether or not the letter reflects his view of Latinos, vowed to defend the teacher and has called his actions “courageous.” Klein, unapologetic as well, told the Arizona Guardian that the letter is a testament to “how little regard they have to get ahead in life and be educated.” But the reading of this letter says more

about the Legislature than it does about Arizona’s Hispanic students. To Pearce, Klein and other Republican senators, illegal immigrants are not the product of poor living and economic conditions in Latin America, but a hoard of gangbanging invaders who do not want to be educated. And it’s hard to believe they don’t extend this characterization to legal Hispanic residents as well. After all, there was no way of knowing whether or not the students described in the letter were undocumented. They could have been legal residents and even natural born citizens. And it’s safe to assume that Klein and Pearce aren’t the only senators who hold Latinos in such low esteem. Keep in mind that not one member of the Republican majority has repudiated Klein and Pearce for their actions, nor have they tried to publicly distance themselves from the controversy. The fact that this letter was disseminated by the Senate’s president and then read out loud during an official legislative proceeding is beyond reprehensible. It has tarnished the Legislature’s credibility and revealed its true perception of Latinos. — Nyles Kendall is a political science junior He can be reached at

Students come last in Legislature’s priorities Elisa Meza Arizona Daily Wildcat


s students attending an institution that prides itself on the ability to find new, innovative ways to tackle our transforming society, state officials do not support us. Their minds are nowhere near analyzing ways to encourage academic pursuits. It’s time to analyze their true focuses and tell them we are through with their distracting ideologies of what “protection” means. Protection, to me, means knowing my nieces will someday have the option to attend school here and afford it. Protection means our younger siblings, cousins and perhaps children, can obtain a higher education. The day will come when we’ve had enough. It should have been yesterday. Protection does not mean having 30 planes fly over Maricopa County searching for drug smugglers. It’s bad enough that schools get shut down in Tucson due to being too close to the Davis-Monthan Military Base. Maricopa is taking a step not just toward militarization of the border, but fear within our own cities. An example of the infringement of safety, and Arizona’s lack of focus on higher education, is Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio. Last week he announced Operation Desert Sky, which became a historic moment in how far Arizona will go to reach complete insanity. According to Colorlines, a daily news site published by the Applied Research Center, “Arpaio said Operation Desert Sky won’t distract normal law enforcement because

it will be staffed by citizen vigilantes and deputies from human smuggling and drug enforcement units.” Why in the world would a state official believe that giving “citizen vigilantes” weapons would provide a feeling of protection to surrounding communities? Communities in Tucson face possibilities of home invasions from Border Patrol each day on the south side, and here we have Arpaiopatriots walking around with M-16s in metropolitan Arizona? Before this announcement was made, and while we celebrated spring break two weeks ago, Arizona was faced with even more ridiculous decisions that even Republicans knew were too crazy to vote for. State Senate President Russell Pearce attempted to pass five controversial immigration bills on March 17 focusing on reestablishing what rights undocumented people have. That included a bill against undocumented students attending community colleges or universities, even while paying outof-state tuition, without being ousted to Border Patrol. Pearce also pushed Senate Bill 1611, which would ban undocumented students from obtaining a higher education because, as he stated to the East Valley Tribune, “This is clean-up.” The reality we have to face is the atmosphere we live and attend school in. We have rallies against budget cuts, gather to

discuss our grievances with tuition increases and we get upset when the state does nothing afterward. We continue to point fingers at state politicians for denying our right to equitable education without even realizing what the true issue is. Our campus is surrounded by a war against ignorant discourse and an inability to critically analyze political situations. The amount of time our state officials spend on writing new bills to abolish opportunities for undocumented students to continue their academic aspirations is priceless to them. I bet their lobbyists have created slide show presentations on how they believe they can catch an immigrant. Oh yeah, S.B. 1070 was never resolved, was it? If we, as critically engaged students of Arizona, can’t connect the ignorance of our state politicians to the lack of justice in the higher education system, what are our degrees worth to our futures? If we think rallies held on our campus against budget cuts are going to catch the state’s attention, why didn’t the message get across two years ago when thousands of students went directly to the Capitol to speak up? Students need to incorporate issues that indirectly affect students into their movements. If student issues aren’t being addressed and are continuously ignored, but we see the state Legislature working ruthlessly to criminalize migrants and fund the military more than education, looks like we have no other choice but to use the power of “intersectionality,” the ways in which we can merge student issues with human rights issues. — Elisa Meza is a junior studying English.

Q& A Alumni: Alyssa Padilla By Eliza Molk ARIZONA DAILY WILDCAT

Alyssa Padilla is a Public Policy Fellow with the Congressional Hispanic Caucus Institute in Washington, D.C. She graduated from the UA in Spring 2009 with a Bachelor of Science degree in business administration from the Eller College of Management. Daily Wildcat: What exactly do you do in your fellowship? Padilla: CHCI fellows get placed into agencies, nonprofit organizations, the White House or Capitol Hill , where we get to do all sorts of research and plan events, depending on which office you get placed in. I am currently doing public policy and research in Congressman Grijalva ’s office on Capitol Hill where I fact check talking points and write summaries for briefings that I’ve attended. My first placement, which was September through December, was in the Department of Health and Human Services in the office of Global Health for the Americas , a federal agency. The fellowship also has weekly training sessions that have different types of policy and education training through the Congressional Research Service program. What are the types of activities you get to partake in as a CHCI fellow? I have gotten to meet with all types of different people including top executives, Latino community leaders, congressmen, Supreme Court justices and multiple ambassadors. I’ve also participated in writing workshops and had really great volunteer opportunities. The CHCI fellows just volunteered at Carlos Rosario , an international public charter school, to help students learning English practice their English. We had a day with Habitat for Humanity and we will be hosting a CHCI 2010-2011 class scholarship where we raise money for the scholarships that CHCI provides. How was meeting the first lady and President Obama? It was mindnumbing and beyond anything I thought I would get to do at this point in my life. The CHCI fellows talked with the first lady for approximately 15 minutes about our program and the young Latino leaders that are out in the world representing their com-

munities and pushing for greater things within those communities. Although the fellows did not get to meet with the president, we attended an event where he spoke and got to meet him and shake his hand.

best to remain focused, always be prepared, never burn bridges, and retain civility and respect. One of the biggest things I have learned to do is utilize my resources and mentors. If you reach out to people with your same interests, they can help you along in life. That is something I never did until I moved out here.


Masters in public health. I feel like my experience as a fellow has helped me develop the type of skills I need and allowed me to hone in on the specific topics that I am interested in. I was never as interested in policy and government as I was in community outreach and grass roots organization, but this helped me put two and two together. I want to further develop my interest in policy along the lines of health, which is a topic I have been advocating for since I was 17 years old.

What are your plans for when you complete your fellowship? I was accepted to the Zuckerman College of Public Health to start my

How long have you been a public policy fellow? I started in August of 2010, and my program ends in May 2011.

tucson, arizona


How did the opportunity to become a public policy fellow come about? After graduating, I took a year off and Google searched “paid fellowships” to see what type of different opportunities were out there. I had heard about CHCI before, so I sent in an application, assuming I was one of the thousands to do so. After making it through a few rounds of cuts and a 15-minute phone interview, I was accepted. Had I not gotten this opportunity, I would have never worked in D.C. nor met core powerful leaders in the U.S. How did your education and experiences at the UA help prepare you for this fellowship? The mix of my business degree and the student run organizations I was involved in helped me prepare for the type of work that I do now. My business degree helped me learn to network and write proposals and memos. Working for the Women’s Resource Center helped fully develop my interest in topics like health and sexual health education. Do you have any advice for current UA students? If you need time off, take it. Try your

Obama pushes for unity in wake of shooting By Bethany Barnes and Luke Money ARIZONA DAILY WILDCAT Standing before an audience of more than 13,000 in McKale Center, with an almost equal number watching via video from the nearby Arizona Stadium, President Barack Obama took a thoughtful pause. “On Saturday morning, Gabby, her staff and many of her constituents gathered outside of a supermarket to exercise their right to peaceful assembly and free speech,” he said. “They were fulfilling a central tenant of democracy and the vision by our founders … That is the quintessentially American scene that was shattered by a gunman’s bullets.” Obama and several high-ranking members of his cabinet

Gabrielle Giffords in critical condition at University Medical Center. “There is nothing I can say that will fill the sudden hole torn in your hearts,” Obama said. “But know this.

Fast Facts

Counterfeit bills were found at several locations on campus around March 17. A University of Arizona Police Department officer responded to the Student Union Memorial Center on March 30 around 10:54 a.m. and spoke with an accounting employee. Immediately on contact, the employee handed the officer the two counterfeit bills. She said that a $50 bill was used during the NCAA basketball tournament at McKale Center sometime on March 17. The $10 bill was used at Cactus Grill sometime before March 17. That bill wasn’t turned in immediately because Cactus Grill employees kept it on hand as an example of a counterfeit bill for their cashiers. The accounting employee said she knew they were counterfeit based on the way they felt. She said they were not ordinary bill fabric. The officer took the bills and placed them into UAPD evidence and forwarded it on to U.S. Secret Service.

Bust the windows out ya car

A non-UA affiliated man busted in the window of a parked car at Phi Gamma Delta fraternity, known as FIJI, fraternity house on March 30 around 8 p.m. A UAPD officer contacted a member of FIJI in the alley north of the house and interviewed him about what happened. He said that an unknown man repeatedly struck the driver ’s side door and window of his car with a rock. A fraternity member in a bedroom in the chapter house saw the man damaging the car. Another member verbally confronted the man from the window and the perpetrator stopped vandalizing the car and fled. Later, the suspect was apprehended by another officer and brought to the member ’s attention. He said that was the man who did the damage. The FIJI appraised the damage to be under $1,000 and chose not to press criminal charges against the perpetrator. The apprehended man refused to comment on the incident and was released.

‘Suspicious’ Tucsonans scavenging for food

An anonymous caller to UAPD reported a suspicious vehicle on March 26 at 2:41 a.m. The car was driving slowly on Highland Avenue and “didn’t look right� the caller said. The same vehicle was spotted again on Park Avenue at James E. Rogers Way. A UAPD officer in the area made a U-turn and followed the vehicle on Second Street. At Mountain Avenue, the car signaled right and then suddenly jerked left and continued on Second Street. The vehicle failed to turn right into the garage in the right-turn only lane and the officer stopped the vehicle. The driver and the passenger each said that they were looking to eat and were not familiar with campus streets. The officer then directed them to Park Avenue and Speedway Boulevard for all-night restaurants.

‘Toxic’ graffiti found in parking lot

Black graffiti was found at the Sixth Street parking lot on March 29. At 2 p.m. a UAPD officer was conducting a parking lot check and noticed that the east wall of a UA building was vandalized with graffiti. A large black letter “N� was founded on the textured white wall. The “N� underscored the entire lettering that continued to read “toxin.� The officer informed general maintenance of the graffiti. Photos were taken of the graffiti and placed into UAPD evidence.

Conservative activists rally as GOP lawmakers talk spending

POISON continued from page 1

For more information about the Arizona Poison and Drug Information Center and the Arizona Pregnancy Riskline, visit their websites at outreach/poison/ and centers/pregnancy-riskline

McClatchy Newspapers WASHINGTON — Capitol Hill was a stage for political theater Thursday as conservative tea party protesters urged Republicans to dig in their heels in budget talks with Democrats — even in the face of a government shutdown — and GOP leaders answered with assurances that no deals had been made. But behind the scenes, negotiators continued to work toward a compromise that would fund the government for the rest of 2011 and avoid a cutoff of federal services before an April 8 deadline. The deal under discussion would result in cuts of about half of the $61 billion in reductions passed by the Republican-led House in February. The small-government activists who rallied outside the Capitol — breaking into chants of "Cut it or shut it!" — insisted that Republicans hold firm to the higher number. The activists noted the dollar figures discussed are a tiny fraction of the $3.7 trillion the government will spend this year and the $14.3 trillion national debt. "I say pass the budget the way they promised or shut the government down," said Michael Kicinski of Earlville,

N.Y., who brought nine of his 12 children to the rally. "Cut NPR, cut Planned Parenthood, cut 'Obamacare.'" Mindful of the clamor outside the Capitol, House Speaker John Boehner, R-Ohio, declared his commitment to the deeper cuts, apparently seeing no stra-

tegic gain promoting an incomplete compromise package with details still under discussion. He told reporters that Republicans had not agreed to the tentative $33 billion compromise package, and remain committed to the deeper cuts approved by his chamber.

But the prospects for that bill appeared grim. Already rejected by the Democratic-led Senate, it includes dozens of divisive policy priorities, including a measure that defunds Planned Parenthood and another gutting the Environmental Protection Agency.

University Physicians Health Corporate Office intern If you could live in another decade, which one would it be? I would go back to the ’20s where there were flappers because I think it would be really funny seeing women run around in little dresses. The fringe? It’s coming back … Ooh, that’s exciting. What is something you have found out about the real world, aka outside of college, that you were not expecting to find there? How little everyone does in a real office job, I thought that was just like high school, college jobs, but in the real world no one does anything. Kind of like “The Office”? Yeah, exactly like that. I look around the office and identify who would be which person from “The Office,” and it’s amazing how little everyone gets done in one day. What is the creepiest thing you have done alone in the cubicle? One day I had to work at 7:30 in the morning, and I was sitting there thinking how easy it would be to curl up under a different desk and take a nap and how no one would notice, I almost dozed off, but I didn’t. Are you going to put anything in someone’s coffee mug for April Fools’ or do you have other plans? I will be up all night brewing up a Fools’ Day concoction.


Aries (March 21 - April 19) — Today is a 6 — Don’t take yourself or others too seriously today. Not only is it April Fools’ Day, but the moon is in your twelfth house, and there’s a tendency to overthink everything. Taurus (April 20 - May 20) — Today is a 7 — You may find yourself moderating a clash between normally gentle souls. Maybe a joke backfires. Remind them of their friendship. Avoid risks today, and celebrate foolishness. Gemini (May 21 - June 21) — Today is a 7 — Who do you want to be? What role (and what costume) do you

Retired Air Force major predicts UFO sightings at royal wedding The upcoming royal wedding between Prince William and Kate Middleton is expected to be viewed by more than a billion people worldwide — and possibly a few extraterrestrials, according to at least one former military officer. George Filer, a retired Air Force major, runs the National UFO Center and says it’s common to see UFOs around important events. “The craft seem to have an interest in anything important,” Filer said. “They’ve been sighted recently over Libya and near the Japanese tsunami.” Filer says his center averages


more than 1,000 sightings a month, and he expects to get a few UFO reports from the area surrounding Westminster Abbey, the site of the April 29 wedding. There are two reasons behind Filer’s prediction: In the last few weeks, he’s been getting reports from British Royal Air Force pilots who reported seeing UFOs over the English Channel, and, more importantly, he says the royal family is very interested in the UFO phenomenon. Filer knows this personally because he once had a conversation about UFOs with William’s grandfather, Prince Philip. “It was around 1961 or ’62, when

I was a navigator in a tanker,” Filer said. “He met with a group of us after a dinner because he wanted to talk about UFOs. He told us that the RAF had stopped sending fighters after UFOs because some of them didn’t come back. “They decided to send tankers, which were nearly as fast as the fighters but could hold 15 hours of fuel, compared to two for the fighters.” Filer says the prince also revealed that his interest in UFOs was more than just concerns of national security — it was personal. —AOL News

Friday night pitchers higlight Wildcats’ first home Pac-10 series

First baseman Josh Garcia and the rest of Arizona’s hitters will be tested by Oregon State’s pitching staff this weekend. The Wildcats and Beavers will play a three-game series at Frank Sancet Stadium, starting tonight at 7.

• Since 1998, the Arizona-Oregon State series is nearly even. Arizona holds a slight edge, 20-19. • Opponents are hitting a measly .229 against Heyer so far in 2011. As dominant as the sophomore has

Just part of ‘the process’ COMMENTARY BY Nicole Dimtsios sports writer

“If it aint broke don’t fix it” should be the motto of the Arizona Wildcats softball program. The Wildcats have had 26 years of stability under head coach Mike Candrea — nearly 1,300 wins, 21 consecutive Women’s College World Series appearances and eight national championships. Arizona must be a breeding ground for athletics streaks and sustained success. Candrea has been able to keep the softball world focused on Tucson despite challengers from the Pacific 10 Conference and the emergence of the Southeastern Conference. His recruiting classes are unparalleled, individual success unmatched and name has become synonymous with USA softball. But the 2011 non-conference season wasn’t going so well. There were problems that needed to be addressed before Pac-10 play began. When the 2011 Wildcats weren’t meeting his, or the program’s, expectations, he did what’s he’s been doing since 1985 — adapt. He needed to tweak his formula for winning. Candrea’s recipe for success is called “the process,” a three-step method, designed to get teams to the post season on a consistent basis. It’s cliché, but it’s proven Senior Andres Carrasco will play in his final home matches this weekend when the Wildcats host California and Stanford. The women’s team will travel to play the Golden Bears and Cardinal this weekend. Photo courtesy of Allison Mullally

and effective. Success gives the program merit, but over the years, Candrea has had to change the way he coaches. “I can remember back in the old days, I didn’t even post stats,” Candrea said. “Our kids didn’t know what they were hitting.” Cell phones, Internet and television coverage all contribute to the “different environment” that Candrea’s athletes now live in. Times, trends and style have all changed, Candrea hasn’t. He uses tradition as motivation rather than intimidation. Instead of stern dismissal, it’s an encouraging clap from the third base batter’s box, or an explanation of how to improve after the game is over. It’s just the way Candrea has always done business. Candrea’s real genius lies in the fact that he knows he has a winning, proven formula, but still changes it to fit the needs of each of his teams. He has proven success, but isn’t absolute in its application. His philosophy is more of a guideline rather than concrete rule. Twenty-six years of success doesn’t lie, and neither does being the most respected coach in the game of college softball. That’s why Arizona has been so successful for a quarter of a century, and why the Wildcats have been associated with the pinnacle of college softball. It’s not time to hit the panic button on Arizona’s season just yet. Candrea knows it’s all just part of the process. — Nicole Dimtsios is a journalism junior. She can be reached at

What: Arizona vs. Oregon State Where: Frank Sancet Stadium When: Friday at 6 p.m., Saturday at 1 p.m., Sunday at noon

After dropping two of three games against No. 5 ASU to open Pacific 10 Conference play, the No. 18 Arizona baseball team is eager to get back into the conference schedule. The Wildcats get that chance this weekend when they host No. 23 Oregon State for a threegame series in Arizona’s first home stand of Pac-10 play. “Now we’re at home, and we need to make up some ground,” head coach Andy Lopez said. “We have to play well.” Friday night’s pitching matchup pits two of America’s top starting pitchers — Arizona’s Kurt Heyer and OSU’s Sam Gaviglio — against one another. Heyer has a 1.33 ERA while Gaviglio touts a .39 ERA. “(Gaviglio) is outstanding, BASEBALL, page 14

Wildcats start fresh with series at Stanford Softball program’s ability to adapt has defined its success By Nicole Dimtsios ARIZONA DAILY WILDCAT In Pacific 10 Conference softball, winning on the road is what separates the good teams from the elite teams. Being able to compete is something Arizona head coach Mike Candrea has long preached, but it will be even more important this season as the No. 7 Wildcats had a less than stellar non-conference record. UA has two early road tests in its conference season, beginning with a three-game series at No. 12 Stanford tonight at 7. “I told the kids, for us to win, you have to play well on the road, so that will tell the tale,” Candrea said. With tournament play crossed off on the calendar and all threegame series for the rest of the way, pitcher Kenzie Fowler said it was essential to prepare for long weekends against the Pac-10. “We’re really going to focus Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays and taking care of business and really trusting each other and having fun,” Fowler said. Arizona is trying to make up for its below-standard play during non-conference season. The Wildcat’s up-and-down play led to a team meeting last week and a refocused look the conference season. UA starts Pac-10 play with a record of 29-6 compared to a 28-3 non-conference record in 2010. Although play within the conference usually is the makeor-break factor that the season hinges on, left fielder Brittany Lastrapes said the Wildcats are

using conference play as catchup time. “We’re going to have to win a lot of games if we want to turn our season around and go where we need to go so Pac-10 is really important,” Lastrapes said. Although Lastrapes leads Arizona with an impressive .486 batting average, Stanford’s

W-Tennis starts tough stretch; M-Tennis to play home finale By Zack Rosenblatt ARIZONA DAILY WILDCAT

The Arizona women’s tennis team goes back on the road this weekend to Northern California to partake in two more Pacific 10 Conference games. Throughout the season the Wildcats have proven their talent, carrying an impressive 15-4 record (2-1 in the Pac-10), along with a No. 30 ranking. This marks the start of a daunting stretch run, which culminates in five straight matches against No. 10 California, No. 1 Stanford , No. 6 UCLA, No. 14 USC and instate rival No. 13 ASU. “You’re talking about girls that

are probably going to be pros, and, realistically, we just have to go in there and understand the facts of life and give ourselves a good frame of mind for our next week out here at home,” said volunteer assistant coach Jim Rosborough. Last weekend the Wildcats fell to the supremely talented Washington Huskies squad, but Arizona did give them everything they had in a hard-fought 4-3 loss. The doubles point came down to a tiebreaker, which Arizona lost. In the singles portion, Lacey Smyth, Susan Mc Rann and Jane Huh picked up the slack with victories. “Our team’s strength this year

has been our ability to step up in every position, and it just didn’t go our way (last) weekend,” said head coach Vicky Maes. “The next few weeks are going to be challenging. We are not playing any teams outside of the top 15, I feel it’s what makes competition in the Pac-10 so attractive.” The Wildcats challenging weekend in the Pac-10 opens with California today, followed by the ranked Stanford Cardinal on Saturday. The Arizona men’s team (8-9, 0-2 Pac-10) has struggled recently, losing four straight. For four Wildcat TENNIS, page 14

Freshmen step up for ’Cats By Kevin Nadakal Arizona Daily Wildcat The Arizona gymnastics team is getting some unexpected help from two freshmen as it heads to NCAA regionals this weekend. Shana Sangston and Jordan Williams have been a huge lift for the injury-riddled Wildcats. Both have made their presence known during the beam event, steadily improving all year. The duo will need to keep their production level high if Arizona wants a chance to advance to nationals. “They are only going to get better,” said head coach Bill Ryden. “They have adapted well, but I think it was a shock to them with the amount of work and how much pressure there is in competition. They are both doing an amazing job and we certainly wouldn’t be this far without them.” Sangston and Williams joined an already talented team, which only lost one senior last year, but were able to crack the rotation. During the first meet of the season, against Utah State, they both competed in the vault and beam events. The freshman class this year has a much different role from last year’s class, which was thrown

(Gaviglio) has been real remarkable with what he’s done.”

into the fire due to the vast amount of injuries. This year’s class has had some more time to gain experience. “Last year we had no options,” Ryden said. “Especially on, like, bars. If you could walk, you were going, didn’t matter.” It is also less stressful for the coaching staff because these freshmen already have experience. “I think it was amazing. I didn’t expect to do as much as I am for the team,” Sangston said. “It’s a really good feeling.” Williams agreed. “It was an experience,” Williams said. “It’s really hard coming in and getting used to everything, but the team helps out a lot. It’s hard because it is a completely different environment, but overall it was amazing.” The pair will get its first taste of a national postseason meet this weekend as the Wildcats head to Colorado for regionals. The coaching staff considers the regional grouping to be one of the toughest in the country. With five of the six teams in the top 20, including No. 1 Florida, it will be a tall task for Arizona, but Ryden is confident in his squad. “We know that we can compete Starting pitching won’t be the only display of hurlers this weekend. Though Arizona’s projected closer Bryce Bandilla hasn’t been effective, his struggles have opened the door for junior left-hander Matt Chaffee at the back of the bullpen. “It’s good that I’m getting to go out there almost every day,” Chaffee said. “I’m just trying to get a better feel for all of my pitches and working to get better every day.” Chaffee has been one of Arizona’s most reliable arms, going 3-1 out of the bullpen with a WHIP of 1.3, with a team-high 16 appearances.

Freshman Jordan Williams has contributed early and often for the Arizona gymnastics team this season. She and fellow freshman Shana Sangston will hope to continue their success when the Wildcats compete in the NCAA regionals this weekend.

with them,” Ryden said. “It is wide open, we are not intimidated at all. We have already beat BYU numerous times, and we have beat Boise.” The meet will take place at the University of Denver. If Arizona places in the top two at the meet they will be able to advance to nationals. If the team falls out of the top two, an individual gymnast can still claim a spot for nationals by winning an event with a 9.800 or higher.

Quirk still working out the kinks

Sophomore all-arounder Molly Quirk is still rehabbing the injuries she sustained during the Pacific 10 Conference championships. Quirk fell off the beam, spraining her knee and ankle, and was forced to sit out the final two events during the meet. “I’m still a little sore,” Quirk said. “But nothing that is not expected after you have a fall like that.” Quirk expects to compete during the team’s regional meet this weekend but is unsure if she will be able to compete all-around.

Pitching is something that hurt the Cardinal last year, but Candrea thinks that will change this year. “I think her and Chinn are going to be a little more deep than they were last year,” he said. The Wildcats will complete the series on Saturday at 1 p.m. and Sunday at noon.

‘Fabulous’ takeover

By KC Stone ArizonA DAily WilDcAt

In a dramatic turn of events, the Prideful Alliance at the UA has taken over the studeng government Senate and the top three executive positions. Since the power seize, the new student-body representatives have made drastic changes to not only the student government office but the entire school in attempts to make the school “fabulous.” “I was in the Feng Shui Club in high school,” said Hugh Jass, the new executive vice president. “I just really think that student government would benefit a lot from rearranging the office. It will really help us with productivity and flow.” Jass also mentioned that the new leadership is looking into redecorating the ZonaZoo, to “brighten it up.” The plans for the student-

section revamp include shellacking the seats so they remain glittered for years to come and passing out pink lapels instead sweat towels before games. The new student body President Harry Balsanga has taken on the daunting task of changing the UA’s school colors, which he referred to as “last season” and “tacky.” Smith is proposing to change the colors to “rainbow” and “glitter,” despite allegations that these aren’t actually colors. He is expected to propose a resolution to the ASUA Senate for approval at the meeting next week. The Prideful Alliance’s takeover was possible by the group utilizing a little-known procedure in the Senate’s bylaws. Article II Section 3 of the bylaws permits members of subsidiary groups to stand in for senators in their absence. The members of the LGBTQAAA5Q¿TL organization made their parliamentary power

grab after distracting the mostly pre-business sophomore senators with a fro-yo party off campus. The substitute senators then voted to appoint themselves to the various positions. “Now I own so many school shirts and jerseys that I can’t wear anymore,” said Santana Pearce. Athletes on various school sporting teams have expressed concers over the new colors. “I just don’t know how tough we’re going to look in glitter rainbow uniforms,” said Matt Taylor, the second-string quarterback of the football team. Though, not all oppose the takeover. “Gurl, this is the best thing to happen to this school since Kourtney (Kardashian) arrived,” said Elton Cher, fashion marketing senior. Balsanga promised bringing the cast of the hit show “Glee” to campus and bedazzling students’ phones on the Mall as future actions.

18? Cheers to new law Legislature lowers drinking age

Fire, health violations found in chapters; graduation rate abysmal By Michelle A. Monroe ArizonA DAily WilDcAt

A crowd of sorority women gathers outside a chapter house.

Initial student responses have been, by large, enthusiastic. “No way, that’s sick, dude,” said local bro Joseph “Joey” Tatum. “Highland Burritos are so dank.” President Sheldon also reported that the UA campus slogan “bear down” will be replaced with “chow down,” effective August 2011. “Chow down, Arizona,” Sheldon said while pumping a fist in the air. “Chow down.”

Sheldon reports that the mascot will stand about six feet tall, wear a tinfoil cape and be bloated with imitation potatoes, cheese and succulent, mouth-watering chorizo. The rebranding initiative will also introduce a new insignia to all official campus merchandise, featuring a half-eaten Herby dripping in pico de gallo salsa, and the incremental replacement of all Wildcat statues on campus with burrito statues.

Eta fraternity. The Alpha Pi sorority house had to evacuate once investigators found black mold in the shower stalls and under the bunks in the sleeping porch. “They made us leave all of our things inside, and I haven’t gone out of the house without make up since the fifth grade, this is terrible!” shouted Ashley Hamilton, a member of Alpha Pi since 2006, who cried hysterically. Delta Theta Delta’s house will be fumigated and unsuitable for habitation for two weeks. “Until my application to Jersey Shore gets accepted, I’m not going anywhere,” said Tanner “Goose” Morrison, a member of Delta Theta Delta. Each of the national organizations has scheduled conferences with the chapter presidents to discuss future plans for the university. UA President Rupert Sheldon said the chapters could reapply for recognition in five years, but stands firmly by his decision. “What’s happening on this campus is a disgrace and I’m working to sterilize this campus of all delinquent behavior,” Sheldon said. Emergency housing has been set up in Bear Down Gym for the sorority women, and in McKale Center for the fraternity men. A memorial service for the alcohol taken away as evidence will be held in front of the Administration building.

An independent audit found that the number of fifth and sixth year seniors in Greek Life has tripled since 2004. For the first time since 1962, the pledge rate in fraternity houses have exceeded the graduation rates, forcing a temporary shut down of all Greek Life activities on campus. In an unprecedented move, the president of the university revoked recognition for all Greek Life chapters. According to the Tucson fire marshall the overcrowding in chapter houses broke more than 20 fire codes. The preliminary investigation found that each fraternity chapter had at least 200 members, and each sororitiy chapter had 250. Those living in the house numbered anywhere from 75 to 123, causing emergency exits to be blocked. In his report the marshall highly suggested a health inspector visit each of the houses for further investigation. On Wednesday, a team of more than 25 Pima County health inspectors made surprise visits to the houses. “It doesn’t normally look like this, we had a CEOs and Office Hos party last night and haven’t gotten a chance to clean it,” said Bryce Dickson, president of Sigma Alpha

New mascot revealed get cuts. “For decades Wilber has been a symbol of this campus’ tenacious dedication to excellence both mental and physical,” Sheldon said in a statement. “But a new generation of student requires a new generation of representation — meaty, delicious representation.” The Highland Market Burrito, tentatively named Herby, is in its earliest stages of planning, but

In a bid to increase campus marketability, longtime university mascot Wilber the Wildcat will be replaced with a Highland Market Burrito, President Rupert Sheldon reported on Tuesday. The decision was the result of a special Campus Rebranding committee called earlier this week in response to state bud-

The Arizona drinking age has been reduced to 18 years old. The Arizona Legislature met on Thursday to vote on Senate Bill 18, which overturned the 1985 law increasing the drinking age from 19 to 21. “We’re calling the federal government’s bluff,” said Sen. John Pearce, R-Snowflurry. After years of accidents and interstate travel for booze, the federal government demanded all states make the drinking age 21 or it would withhold federal highway funding. However, the three university and 2,560 community college presidents signed a letter to the state lawmakers that demanded the drinking age be lowered. “Each year we have to kick out valuable students because they have repeated alcohol violations,” said State Arizona University president Gabriel Hawk. In 2011, more than 13,000 students in Arizona were kicked out of school because of alcohol-related charges. “I wish this law had passed three months ago,” said Trent Johnson, who was expelled from the UA and now attends Nogales Community College. Police officers are not worried about the effect that it will have on campuses and said they will continue to follow the law, though they did announce an increase in DUI checkpoints this weekend. “College students have been drinking since their freshmen year, so we’re more concerned with how this will affect the high schools,” said Jorge Garcia, a spokesman for the West Tucson Police Department. Resident Life is trying to cope with the number of students carting alcohol into dorms across campus. Resident Life Code says that each student may only have enough alcohol for individual consumption. “I don’t know how long this will last but I’m going to make the best of it,” said Wyatt Walker, an undeclared senior, as he cracked open a bottle of Jack Daniels.

Rebecca Black to perform at Arizona Stadium years of education but are still super famous.” Black said she hopes to live in Coronado Hall for one semester before moving out to Campus Crossings at Star Pass in the spring because “freshmen boys are too immature.” She will then leave school to pursue a reality TV career. Black has kept her set list plans close to the vest, but sources close to the 13-year-old speculated that she will both open and close the show with “Friday.” The encore is expected to be the mellower “Tuesday” followed by the raunchy, club beat “Saturday.” No word on whether or not the Ying Yang Twins will accompany Black to perform their artsy, risk-taking collaboration “February.” Similarly to Jay-Z’s appearance at UA in 2009, Black’s contract features some unique specifics.
