Hart to hold first town hall of semester ALISON DORF Arizona Daily Wildcat

President Ann Weaver Hart will host an open town hall forum on Friday to answer questions from the UA community regarding the university. The forum will take place in Roy P. Drachman Hall and will provide students, faculty and staff with the opportunity to address questions directly to Hart. In the past, questions could be submitted prior to the forum. However, this

year, the town hall will only be accepting live questions, said J.C. Mutchler, executive director and vice president for the Office of the President and chair of the Strategic Planning and Budget Advisory Committee. “It’s a chance for the community to one, get to see the president and talk to her, but also to raise any questions that are on their mind,” Mutchler said. “I would expect the president to talk at least a little bit about kind of her vision, as we’re doing a massive kind of strategic

planning exercise … and how we’re moving forward on those things.” Since last fall, SPBAC has been engaged in a campuswide strategic planning exercise, working with deans and provosts, and is well on its way through, he added. “We’re actually thinking a lot about the university’s future right now,” Mutchler said. Performance-based salary increases are another topic that might be raised at the town hall

meeting. In an email sent to all UA employees Wednesday, Hart announced that a universitywide salary adjustment pool of $9.1 million has been established. The adjustment will fund “performance-based salary increases for benefits-eligible faculty and staff funded on state and locally allocated budgets.” The increase, effective July 1, will be the first institutionwide salary increase since 2007, according to the email.

Professor to testify as expert witness MAXWELL J. MANGOLD




UA PRESIDENT Ann Weaver Hart will hold the first town hall of the semester on Friday, where the UA community can ask a variety of questions.


A UA associate professor will testify at a landmark Guatemalan trial this month that could cause a ripple effect across the world. Elizabeth Oglesby, an associate professor of geography and Latin American studies, will testify as an expert witness in the trial of Efrain Rios Montt, who took office in Guatemala through a coup d’etat and reigned from March 1982 to August 1983. He is now being tried for genocide and human rights violations. Oglesby, who was contacted in 2011 by the Guatemalan Ministry of Justice, wrote a nearly 50-page testimony for the trial detailing what she saw during and learned from her research and time in the country. Oglesby will testify sometime this month to ratify and answer questions on her written testimony from both defense and prosecuting lawyers. Oglesby, who conducted the research in her 20s, said the request for her testimony proves that students’ age doesn’t mean they “can’t get involved in really engaging, important work.” “[This is] an incredible story of bringing accountability to the justice system of Guatemala to show nobody is above the law,” Oglesby said. The 36-year civil war, which ended in 1996, saw 200,000 people killed, more than 80 percent of whom were from Mayan populations, according to the United Nationsbacked Guatemalan Commission for Historical Clarification.

Spring Fling kicks off today WHITNEY BURGOYNE Arizona Daily Wildcat


SPRING FLING, the largest student-run carnival in the nation, raises money to help fund UA clubs. The event, now in its 39th year, will kick off today and last until Sunday.

The annual Spring Fling carnival kicks off today with a variety of rides, food and games for attendees. The Associated Students of the University of Arizona is hosting the 39th annual Spring Fling, the largest studentrun carnival in the nation, today through Sunday. Located at the Rillito Downs track, Spring Fling will offer 25 carnival rides as well as food and games for UA students and Tucson residents alike. More than 1,000 student volunteers are helping to organize and run the event. The organizers of this year’s event have amped up the festivities, said Jared Young, Spring Fling director and a junior studying

accounting and finance. This year, Hannah Rosen, media director of Spring Fling and a senior studying English and creative writing, has arranged for a different radio station to broadcast from Spring Fling and give away prizes each day. Other directors for the event are putting together performances like Battle of the Bands, where bands will compete for a spot to perform on the final day of Spring Fling. Another new aspect this year is the appearance of the Lorax at the children’s corner during the event this weekend, where families can enjoy guided readings and other child-friendly activities. The main objective of the carnival is to help clubs and organizations fundraise

through the fun activities planned, said Paige Sager, ASUA administrative vice president and a senior studying marketing. Last year’s carnival raised $50,000 for the clubs and organizations that participated, Sager said. “[Spring Fling] is a really longstanding tradition and our goal is to integrate the U of A and the Tucson community, and we want as many people as possible to be a part of that,” Sager said. “Our main goal is to raise money for clubs and organizations, so having people come in and help do that is amazing.” There will be no lack of food, either, as guests will be able to choose from classic carnival deep-fried foods or more

Faculty follows Obama’s lead SafeRide on BRAIN research initiative tries to set Kayla Samoy Arizona Daily Wildcat

The UA faculty is taking a collaborative approach to research in order to further President Barack Obama’s initiative to solve the mysteries of the brain. Dr. Fernando Martinez, a physician-scientist and head of the BIO5 Institute, was at the White House last week when Obama revealed the Brain Research through Advancing Innovative Neurotechnologies Initiative, a research initiative designed to revolutionize the understanding of the human brain. The BRAIN Initiative aims to encourage the development of new technologies that will make it easier to study and understand how the brain work, thus enabling researchers to find new ways to treat, cure and prevent brain disorders and brain injuries. Over the last 10 years, BIO5 has been combining the labors of science, agriculture, medicine, engineering and pharmacy to solve biology-based issues affecting society. “If we invest in bringing here the team members that are needed in order to respond to thise new challenge, I think Arizona could have a major role in the BRAIN Initiative,” Martinez said. “We

Fernando Martinez, head of the BIO5 institute, recently took a trip to the White House, where President Obama revealed the BRAIN Initiative.

already have the basis.” In order for these advancements to be made, experts from varied fields, like engineering and neuroscience, will have to collaborate and share their knowledge. Martinez said that one of the challenges UA faculty will face is building teams that will work together even though the tradition has been to work in separate colleges, departments and institutions.

“If we’re really going to solve the problems of how the brain works, the next phase is all these people coming together with different points of view,” Martinez said. Dr. David Labiner, head of the department of neurology, agreed that it’s important to collaborate as researchers transition from translating research to applying their knowledge to treating disease. “The days of silos have to end,”

Labiner said. “Some of the best ideas came from collaborative efforts.” Dr. Carol Barnes, head of the Evelyn F. McKnight Brain Institute, said that this is a great opportunity not only for the UA, but also for institutions across Arizona. It’s a chance to strengthen ties with other universities, institutions and hospitals, she said. “We can benefit from interactions across the state and we can each contribute something different,” Barnes said. Martinez said the president’s commitment to confronting health challenges despite the struggling economy was reassuring. Treating brain diseases is about more than curing a patient; it’s about giving them equal opportunities to enjoy life, he said. Martinez added that he imagined his experience at the White House was similar to when President Kennedy announced the mission of putting a man on the moon. The moon landing was a critical event in the 20th century, and Martinez said he felt the BRAIN Institute could have the same impact in the 21st century. “Maybe this ceremony was the initiation of a quest like the one that got us to the moon,” Martinez said. “It may improve the lives of millions of people worldwide.”

Campus group celebrates culture Shelby Thomas Arizona Daily Wildcat

The UA Filipino-American Student Association will host its 17th annual Fiesta this weekend at Tucson High Magnet School. The Fiesta is titled “Salo Salo,” a Filipino word that means a celebration or gathering with food, and aims to create awareness of Filipino culture throughout the Tucson community, said Jeff Viray, director of FASA Fiesta and a senior studying media arts with an emphasis on producing. The festivities will begin with a social hour at 6 p.m. where guests can sample a variety of traditional Filipino foods. There will also be informational boards explaining how to prepare each dish, its origins, why it is popular and how it is prepared, Viray said. Delicacies such as pancit, lumpia and sa malamig will be available for both the Filipino community, who may be familiar with the food, and members of the community who are experiencing it for the first time. Viray hosted the 2012 Fiesta, but said that as the director, he has a more hands-on role in the organizing process this year. “Last year we had a lot of fun but thought there was a lot of room for improvement,” Viray said, “so I wanted to change the vibe and direction of things.” In order to accomplish these goals, the event now includes a skit about an American-born Filipino who visits his parents’ homeland for the first time. During his visit, a conversation with his grandfather takes him through the culture and traditions of the Philippines. “My main role has been to come up with fresh ideas for how to present the Filipino culture to the Tucson community,” Viray said. “I wanted to add a skit to try to give a sense of what it would be like for a Filipino-American who was born in America to go back to the homeland and experience the culture shock … That’s what we really want to give a sense of in our show.” Musical and dance performances will also be featured to help tell the story. Darrel Ann,

a nutrition junior, and Joey Monteczuma, a physiology sophomore, will utilize their musical talents in the realm of hip hop, as will Perris Howard, a physiology sophomore. The Dia Clones, a dance crew based in Tucson, and FASA Fiesta’s Choir will also take the stage. Ricky Tutaan, a freshman studying music at Pima Community College, has performed at FASA Fiesta three times before, his first time being when he was just a sophomore in high school. He said he was encouraged by his older brother and sister, both college alumni who also participated in FASA. He will be providing musical entertainment during the social hour. “What it means to be Filipino is to be part of a family,” Tutaan said. “You are always raised to be someone of respect and to acknowledge any person’s background.” Cheryl Gamachi, the historian on the executive board for FASA Fiesta and a former Daily Wildcat columnist, said it is important to stay connected to one’s heritage. The event,

“I hope that this increase will provide an opportunity to reward the many University of Arizona staff and faculty whose work is vital to the success of the university,” Hart said in the email. “This salary increase will be based on clear links between pay and performance, a vital feature of our ability to attract and retain high quality members of our university team.” Katy Murray, president of the Associated Students of the University of Arizona, said

she predicts there will be some questions from attendees about the pay raises, as well as questions about tuition and Hart’s plans for the university for the next year. Murray said this is one of the only times where students, faculty, staff, administration and the community at large can come ask any question they want. Whether it is a question pertaining to the strategic plan or tuition or just a suggestion, the event is very open in terms of what participants can ask and talk about, Murray added. “Every single one of these [issues] is

along with Asian-Pacific American Heritage month, will help the community do so. “Asian-Pacific American Heritage Month brings a lot of pride,” said Gamachi, a journalism sophomore. “It is a month to be aware of your own culture, and other Asian cultures as well. Just because we live in the U.S., it doesn’t mean that we should dismiss that side and only focus on being American. It might be cliché, but we do have the best of both worlds.”

something that’s going to affect students, whether it’s our tuition dollars, whether it’s the size of our classes, whether it’s our ability to access different resources and have the same types of resources that a lot of our competitive institutions have,” Murray said. “Really anything and everything that could come up at this meeting is something that will either directly or indirectly affect students.” During the first town hall forum in October, Murray said the room was packed with people who had questions for the UA president.

SafeRide will attempt to beat its record number of passengers for the first day of the Spring Fling carnival today. For SafeRide, a free transportation service for UA community members, the Thursday night of the Spring Fling carnival is among the busiest nights of the year, said Adam Klever, SafeRide administrative director and a chemistry junior. Last year, the organization transported 1,073 passengers. This year’s goal is to transport 1,300 passengers. Tonight will start as usual, with a high volume of calls for rides coming in. However, as opposed to a normal night, where SafeRide can immediately dispatch approximately 15 calls, tonight the service will be able to dispatch 20 to 25 calls, said Suzi Plasencia, SafeRide staff development coordinator and a speech, language and hearing sciences senior. Additionally, for tonight, SafeRide services will have five vans, seven sedans and three high-occupancy vans on duty. The three high-occupancy vans and the two extra sedans are rented just for the night, with the high-occupancy vans holding up to 15 passengers. SafeRide will run until 1 a.m. as usual. Although SafeRide cannot travel to the Spring Fling grounds this year since it is outside SafeRide’s boundaries, there is typically an increase in general activity on campus and in the surrounding area due to other activities and Greek organizations, said Steven Dennis, SafeRide operations director and an engineering management senior. The boundaries for SafeRide are Grant Road to the north, Broadway Boulevard to the south, Stone Avenue to the west and Country Club Road to the east. “We believe that you should use SafeRide basically because of all of the extra activity on campus,” Dennis said. “Should someone try to harm you, that is the time to do it. There are people, they are all over, they are more distracted than usual and we would like to be your safe ride home.” Mackenzie Joyce, a biology and physiology junior, said she uses SafeRide at least three times a week. “It eliminates any of the safety issues with walking home alone late at night,” Joyce said. “Even though I live only a few blocks from campus, it is just easier to grab a SafeRide back home instead of having to walk.”

Oglesby said. “Every generation that kept trying to organize for a better life in Guatemala was just being beaten back and repressed.â€? According to the Commission for Historical Clarification, the period of 1981 to 1983, which framed the 17 months in which Rios Montt was in power, accounts for 81 percent of violations during the 36-year conflict. Oglesby, who researched “internally displaced populationsâ€? in Guatemala in the ’80s, including Mayans, focused on the state of people and communities in the aftermath of more than 600 massacres. “For me, doing research is very much a social process,â€?

Elizabeth Oglesby, a UA associate professor of geography and Latin American studies, will testify as an expert witness in a trial in Guatemala this month.

Sebastian Quinac, a Maya Kaqchikel from Guatemala and adjunct lecturer in the Latin American Area Center, was displaced 30 years ago by the war, but said part of his heart remains in his native country. “Hundreds of Mayan people who are in exile, I would say are still in exile. I am now a U.S. citizen, but I still feel exiled because I left my sons forcefully,� Quinac said at the “Impunity on Trial: Historical Memory, Human Rights and the Genocide Trial of Efrain Rios Montt� roundtable discussion Monday. “I had to change my way to think, to see, to act.�


An estimated 1.5 million Guatemalans were displaced by the civil war, and Oglesby agreed that the effects of the war have yet to fade. “These issues of the humans rights abuses ‌ are not just issues that are part of Latin America’s past,â€? Oglesby said. “They’re very much issues of Latin America’s present, because the societies are still trying to grapple with the aftermath of these experiences.â€? In addition to Rios Montt, the trial is also prosecuting his then-chief of military intelligence, Jose Mauricio Rodriguez Sanchez. While the criminal proceedings are a groundbreaking step, they leave something to be desired, considering all those who have not been held accountable for their crimes, said Linda Green, director of Latin American studies, speaking in the discussion. “Yes, it’s a crack in the wall and it may lead to something more, but there’s so much more that needs to take place,â€? Green said. “I do think it gives a measure of hope to people on the ground in and even to those who are not testifying ‌ It really then becomes a testimony for all people.â€?

Genome patents hurt health research RAZANNE CHATILA Arizona Daily Wildcat


atents guarantee a person or company complete rights and access to their product, idea or method, and since 1980, patents have even applied to our genes. In Diamond v. Chakrabarty, the Supreme Court ruled that “a live, human-made micro-organism is patentable subject matter,” which opened the door for biotech companies and other organizations to start patenting genes. Genome patenting has been occurring for over 30 years, and the U.S. Patent and Trademark Offices have given patents to between 3,000 and 5,000 genes. Universities and companies have patented about 20 percent of the genes in the human genome, according to the Association of American Medical Colleges. However, gene patents are detrimental for researchers and patients because they give companies exclusive rights on testing and research for certain genes, and sometimes even their mutations. Reducing the number of researchers who can study genes delays progress and stalls potential discoveries. According to a recent study by Dr. Jeffrey Rosenfeld and Dr. Christopher Mason, 41 percent of genes in the human genome have already been claimed through patents. Although biotech companies claim that patents are necessary to reward innovation, awarding sole rights to one company or person creates issues because it blocks other scientists from conducting research. Under current patent laws, only one company or institution can test and research mutations of a patented gene, unless it gives another company permission. Exclusive testing rights also affect patients. Gene patenting has the potential to prevent patients from being able to get a second opinion on test results if their physician has a patent on those genes. If you had a blood test and your physician said your results showed signs of breast cancer, you might not be able to get a second test done because other companies would be limited by the patent. This denies patients access to their own medical information. Not only can these patents prevent people from taking tests that could confirm a proper diagnosis, they also increase the cost of gene testing, according to Lori B. Andrews, director of the Institute for Science, Law and Technology at the Illinois Institute of Technology Chicago-Kent College of Law. This controversy has led to the Association for Molecular Pathology v. Myriad Genetics case, which is up for review by Supreme Court justices on Monday. Myriad Genetics is the only company in the U.S. permitted to conduct blood tests that can detect mutations in the BRCA1 and BRCA2 genes, the genes used to test for breast and ovarian cancer. According to the AAMC, the patents that Myriad has owned since 1990 give it the exclusive right to test the genes. One of the plaintiffs of the case, Lisbeth Ceriani, is a young breast cancer survivor who needed to find out her risk of ovarian cancer but could not pay $4,000 for the cost of the Myriad testing, and the company also refused to work with her insurance company, according to the American Civil Liberties Union. As the ACLU has stated, the patents create a monopoly that eliminates the freedom patients need to maintain their own health. Biotech companies shouldn’t be able to own genes. It limits the scientific process and hurts patients. At some point, biotech companies are going to have to put human lives ahead of making money. —Razanne Chatila is a journalism sophomore.

Trending dow n

Grades: With finals coming up, grades are trending down. We all hate finals, but this time of year brings up the bigger question of whether finals are really an accurate measure of a student’s performance. If schools are serious about education reform, then they should look into administering more minor tests and quizzes throughout the semester instead of just one or two big exams, so that students are more prepared for their actual careers.

Gun control: A gunman held four firefighters hostage in Georgia on Wednesday. Regardless of the gunman’s motive, the incident should put more pressure on Congress to come up with a plan for stricter gun control. According to Slate magazine, from the the Dec. 14 shooting in Newtown, Conn., through March 28, there have been 3,356 gun-related deaths in the U.S. With President Barack Obama fighting to establish background checks for potential gun owners and a ban on assult weapons, you have to wonder how there still hasn’t been anything done about gun control.

Unpaid summer internships: As the semester winds down, everyone is eagerly anticipating the sunny, relaxing days of summer. That is, everyone who doesn’t have a summer internship. For those who do, the prospect of beginning a summer of work, probably without getting paid, screams of injustice. The logic behind taking unpaid internships is that they’ll give a student the resources and experience to land a good job. However, the National Association of Colleges and Employers found that 60 percent of graduates from the class of 2012 with paid internships received at least one job offer, while only 37 percent of graduates with unpaid internships got an offer. Just a little something for unpaid interns to keep in mind while they slave away.

Kim Jong-un, the meme: Yes, there is still the threat of North Korea attempting to start World War III, but it seems like people are taking Kim Jongun’s threats less and less seriously. Although North Korea has the fifth-largest military in the world, its equipment is outdated. So while fewer Americans worry that their house will be blown up by a North Korean missile, more Internet memes making fun of Kim Jong-un pop up by the day.

Dear Editor, Across the campus a new T-shirt trend is alive. An overwhelming number of students are sporting the “Keep Calm and Carry On” shirt that originates from Great Britain during WWII. Upon first seeing this, I could not help but be horrified as young people today should be anything but calm. The nation faces an enormous debt that we will have to pay. Couple this with the high rate of unemployment and the difficulty that students face finding jobs and one immediately wonders whether being calm and just “carrying on” is really appropriate. The destruction to the environment is reaching irreversible levels. We must change our way of living as humans in order to prevent destroying the planet. Furthermore, the U.S. educational system is in critical condition and falls well below that of other developed nations. The public school system has deteriorated; the charter school has only served to leave the poor behind. We live in a society where individuals are still targeted by the police based upon their race and ethnicity and where penalties for crime often depend on the color of your skin. We live in a society where sexual violence against women is infused in the culture. We live in a nation where a small-town thief is put behind bars while big banks commit fraud on mass levels and suffer no consequences. Our nation holds the highest incarceration rate in the world, spending more money on prisons than on schools. We live in a society where we are being sold pharmaceutical solutions for every problem of living while the sociopolitical factors that give rise to many

of these problems are ignored. This list can go on and on but it seems very clear that there is nothing to be calm about. It is disappointing to see such a young and capable generation becoming complacent. What is needed right now is not calmness or relaxation. What we need is awareness of these issues, anger, dissatisfaction and a desire to implement change. — JeanMarie Bianchi, UA graduate student


In response to “Pros and cons of ASA lawsuit” (by Dan Desrochers, April 10): While toggling between UA Confessions on Facebook and homework, students should be concerned. The Arizona state Legislature has spent 82 days in 2013 on one education issue: destroying a student group. While walking from one class to another, students checking their Tinder accounts should be concerned. The Arizona State Constitution says that education should be “nearly as free as possible.” The Arizona Students’ Association agreed and decided to try to put more money into education. For following the spirit of Arizona’s Constitution, the Arizona Students’ Association has been under attack. While wondering why tuition, fees, textbook costs, total cost of attendance has gone up and while wondering how working three jobs is somehow going to make it possible to make ends meet, students should be concerned. A student organization fighting for students will have a tougher time helping you. And that’s the goal: The powers that be in the state of Arizona — the governor, the State Legislature and ABOR [the Arizona Board of Regents] — want to charge you more and take away your say in your education. Attacking the Arizona Students’ Association is step one. POST THAT … then Tinder … — Zachary Brooks, Graduate and Professional Student Council president

Injuries help UA work on depth LUKE DELLA Arizona Daily Wildcat

The injury bug wasn’t kind to the Arizona defense this spring, as notable names missed most or all of the spring practices. But the injuries also let younger players see some extra reps, giving the Wildcats a chance to cultivate some of the depth they lacked all last season. Arizona entered spring practice with 12 players already missing time, all of them healing from injuries sustained the year prior. Many of them were expected starters, too, such as Marquis Flowers, Jonathan McKnight and Shaquille Richardson, players who could have used the 15 spring practices to improve a defense that ranked third-worst in the nation for total yards allowed in 2012. Instead, Arizona got the opportunity to play new faces and work on building the depth it desperately needs. “You coach the guys no different than if you had all the guys out there,” cornerbacks coach David Lockwood said. The cornerback position was hit hardest this offseason as the position’s two top players, Richardson and McKnight, were both sidelined the entire spring with shoulder injuries. “Unfortunately, in a season or in a game, someone is going to get hurt so someone else has to step up,” Lockwood said. “In my entire career I’ve always tried to coach every player as if they are a starter, because with one play they could become a starter.” ARIZONA DAILY WILDCAT FILE PHOTO Throughout last season, several players who weren’t fully ready for college football had to play, head coach LINEBACKER JAKE FISCHER and defensive lineman Reggie Gilbert tackle a Toledo ballcarrier in the UA’s 24-17 overtime victory. Six starters missed all of spring practice . Rich Rodriguez said. Rodriguez may not have wanted and he’s also physical, so when he’s on the field he’s looking to not confident, you’re not going to make plays, and with this to play them, but he had to because Arizona needed 11 defense you got to make plays if you want to play.” hit someone, and that’s a good trait.” men on the field. Lockwood said technique is the biggest difference Tevis himself missed a couple of spring practices this Freshman William Parks was one defender forced into the action, playing in six games in 2012, including the Gildan New year because of a sprained ankle. Tevis said, though, that between the regular starters and replacement guys like Parks. Mexico Bowl against Nevada, where he had two solo tackles. being injured doesn’t mean you’re not involved. He said the Fortunately for Parks and the rest of the players filling in, Parks credits his preparation for the small, but early, success nonparticipating players still performed mental reps and they’ve had 15 practices to try to catch up to the players ahead could complete individual workouts and lifting during the of them on the depth chart. he had last season. With all but one defensive starter returning and added depth “You just got to be ready and use practice, especially these spring. Many of the younger Wildcats, such as Parks, took advantage from backups like Parks and a new recruiting class, Arizona has 15 practices, to be ready for whatever the coaches might ask of the extra playing time in practice to better their position on a chance to improve significantly on that side of the ball. you to do,” Parks said. “We did all right last season,” Tevis said, “but we want more. “Be ready” is right.

Neal’s transfer to Arizona Bullpen trio provides highlights recruiting coup big relief for starters

ZACK ROSENBLATT Arizona Daily Wildcat

LUKE DELLA Arizona Daily Wildcat


ecruiting is like bathing: “You’ve got to do it every day,” said Greg Byrne, Arizona’s athletic director, “or you’re gonna stink.” Byrne has to be pretty happy right now. His two biggest programs — and only moneymakers — are on the rise. Sean Miller and Rich Rodriguez are good, possibly great coaches. But they’re even better recruiters. That was the case even before the calendar turned to April, when Miller and Rodriguez made two of the bigger recruiting coups in Arizona history. You already know about basketball’s most recent commit, Aaron Gordon, ESPN’s No. 4 recruit and the McDonald’s AllAmerican Game MVP. “Coach Miller was a great fit for him,” said Tim Kennedy, Gordon’s high school coach. “Coach Miller and him really hit it off.” Then late Tuesday night word surfaced that Notre Dame wide receiver Davonte’ Neal would be transferring to the UA. Rodriguez couldn’t comment on his decision Wednesday. Neal was ranked the No. 8 recruit by ESPN coming out of high school. He didn’t do much for Notre Dame last year — he had one reception for minus-five yards, one carry for 7 yards and 21 punt returns for 46 yards. But he was a stud coming out of high school, and the Wildcats have the tools to utilize his multi-dimensional talents. At Chaparral High School in Scottsdale, Ariz., Neal saw time at receiver, running back and cornerback, tallying a combined 29 touchdowns. The Wildcats’ return game was shoddy at best last year, so Neal will make an instant impact in that area, which is what makes this signing so commendable for Rodriguez and his staff. Neal chose to transfer to be closer to his girlfriend and

newborn baby. Because of that, he will try to get a waiver to play right away, and will likely succeed. It was widely assumed Neal would make the move to UCLA , but after Rodriguez reportedly spoke with him and his father, Neal never even made the trip to Westwood. “The way coach Rodriguez throws the ball around is amazing,” Neal told “They do it the entire game. I’ll have an opportunity to play inside and outside

During Arizona baseball’s run to the national championship last season, the Wildcats had an efficent offense, a dominant starting rotation led by eventual sixth-round draft pick Kurt Heyer and a shaky bullpen. With Heyer gone to the minor leagues, the 2013 starting rotation has struggled to find consistency and a firm identity within the Pac-12 conference. This time, though, it’s a talented bullpen that has helped the Wildcats stay within arm’s reach of a conference title. “Oh God, no,” said head coach Andy Lopez when asked if he was worried about the depth of his pen. “We have some talented young men coming out of that bullpen. I’m probably most happy with their competitiveness and execution.” Arizona’s bullpen is predominately led by three pitchers: redshirt junior Augey Bill, freshman Tyger Talley and sophomore closer Mathew Troupe. Together they have a combined Earned Run Average of 1.50. The only other bullpens in the conference that match that sort of productivity are Oregon State and Oregon’s, and they are ranked No. 7 and No. 9 in the nation, respectively. None of the three Wildcat pitchers have worked enough innings to be considered for any top pitching awards, but relievers aren’t graded on longevity. The situations they’ve pitched out of have been key for Arizona this season. To go along with the low ERA, the three relief pitchers have a combined record of 9-0 with a WHIP




HEAD FOOTBALL COACH Rich Rodriguez helped bring former five-star recruit Davonte’ Neal to the UA.

PARROM FORGOES POSSIBLE FIFTH YEAR Arizona head coach Sean Miller wanted another year of Kevin Parrom. Considering everything Parrom went through, Miller felt he was a realistic candidate for a hardship waiver that would grant him a fifth year of eligibility. Parrom could have been eligible for the waiver since he missed two games at the

beginning of his junior season after being shot twice — in the hand and the leg — while visiting his sick mother in New York. He then missed the final 13 games of the year with a foot injury. With a succession of tweets Wednesday night, though, Parrom made it clear he is ready to move on. “I did not try to get a 5th year at Arizona,”

Parrom tweeted. “I recently picked an agent to play professional. I know a lot of you guys wanted to know … “I enjoyed my time here at the U of A. I learned so many things on & off the court. I am ready for the next stage of my life.” Parrom helped the Wildcats advance to the Sweet 16 this year before falling to Ohio State

and was key in Arizona’s Elite Eight run in 2011. He averaged 8.3 points, 4.9 rebounds, 1.9 assists and 1.2 3-pointers in 23.6 minutes per game in his final season. “I will still be in Tucson working out & finishing strong in class so I can graduate in May for my mother & grandma,” Parrom tweeted. “I love Tucson lol.”

of 0.98, by far the best on the team. As of late, Talley (4-0) has been the most useful pitcher out of the bullpen, with all four of his victories coming in the team’s current six-game winning streak. Talley also proved he has the stamina to go multiple innings, starting two weekday games this season. In his second start of the season, against Texas Tech on March 6, Talley threw a no-hitter through the first five innings before allowing two hits and one earned run in 6.0 innings pitched. He’s only a freshman, but Talley isn’t afraid to wear his heart on his sleeve, and he’s done so in many tight situations this year. A starting gig may be in his future, but for now Talley is happy coming out of the bullpen. “I want to do whatever’s best for the team and whatever they want me to do,” Talley said. “No matter the situation, I’ll be amped up and excited to conquer it.” While the freshman brings more fierce competitiveness onto the mound, the older Bill is intimidating in his own way. Bill is an aerospace engineering major who turned down Harvard to attend Arizona. Equal to his brains is his physical presence out on the mound, as he stands 6-foot-9 tall while throwing from left side of the mound. Bill (3-0) holds the team’s lowest ERA at 0.93 and has only given up two earned runs in 19.1 innings pitched. Lopez uses the redshirt junior more as a set-up man in the seventh and eighth innings, rarely allowing Bill to go more than one frame. But game in and game out, Bill has been the consistent, dependable bridge to get the ball to Troupe. “We’re a great bullpen and a great group of guys that really work together,” Bill said. “We’re all confident when we go out there that we’re going to get the job done and I know [Lopez] is too.” Like many closers, Troupe came to the Arizona program hoping to be a starter. After getting a few opportunities last season, he proved to be more effective as a reliever, so Lopez began bringing him out to close the game.

MIDDLE RELIEVER Tyger Talley pitches in Arizona’s 5-4 win against Cal on Sunday. Talley’s 1.93 ERA is third-best on the team and the freshman has the Wildcats’ second-best K/9 rate. The bullpen trio of Talley, junior Augey Bill and sophomore Mathew Troupe has allowed nine earned runs in 66.0 innings pitched this year.

Because of his background as a starter, Troupe has the ability to work two, sometimes three full innings, depending on the rest he received in games prior. He also has a personality. Troupe made headlines last season by growing out his beard during the team’s post-season run. Even though he admits to absolutely hating the beard, he said he feels the need to keep it. And fittingly so, as the beard matches his prescription Oakley glasses, flame-throwing 93 mph fastball and hardcutting breaking ball perfectly.

has dangerous weapons at his disposal. That’s not to mention that in his first year at Notre Dame, Neal played in the from page 5 National Championship game, something receiver in the offense.

But with Neal potentially in However, Neal didn’t exactly handle the slot, coupled with All-Pac-12 receiver his recruitment well last year. First, he Austin Hill and a Heisman candidate at running back in Ka’Deem Carey, Rodriguez narrowed his list of potential schools down


Troupe (2-0) can be torture at the end of games, routinely putting the game in jeopardy. He’s made games so close that Lopez has even jokingly said he considered smoking to relieve the stress. But in the end, Troupe always seems to get the job done, recording eight saves to go along with a team-high 36 strikeouts in just 23.1 innings pitched. “Coming out to get the save is a lot of fun and gets the juices going,” Troupe said. “Sometimes maybe I need to calm myself down, but I’m so confident in the coaches and my defense that I know I can go out there and get the job done.”

to Arizona, Notre Dame, North Carolina and Arkansas. More than 600 students at his old elementary school gathered for a planned announcement of his college choice, but after 30 minutes, Neal was a no-show. He announced he would go to Notre Dame the next day. That debacle aside, Neal is a huge get for Rodriguez, and for Arizona. Neal probably won’t make a Gordonlevel impact for the Wildcats, but the combination of their commitments to the

UA firmly establishes Arizona as a force to be reckoned with in the field of recruiting. “Every day you’re allowed to recruit, you’ve got to continue to be engaging and involved, have relationships with high school coaches out there, and both of those guys do a great job at that,” Byrne said. “They understand recruiting.” — Zack Rosenblatt is a journalism senior.

Police Beat MAXWELL J. MANGOLD Arizona Daily Wildcat

Post-froyo freak-out

A UA student was arrested after allegedly assaulting a taxi driver on Second Street and Cherry Avenue at 12:32 a.m. on April 7. The taxi driver said the student was visibly intoxicated when he picked him up from Dairy Queen on Fourth Avenue. After looking for cab fare, the student, who was sitting in the front passenger seat, hit the driver twice in the head and fled without paying. Nothing happened to provoke the attack, said the driver, who suffered two abrasions above his right eye. A University of Arizona Police Department officer approached the driver after seeing his taxi parked in the middle of an intersection. The driver told the officer about the attack, so the officer turned on the patrol vehicle’s emergency lights and yelled for the student, who was still in sight, to stop. The student then began to run, and the officer chased him on foot. Suddenly, the student stopped and faced the officer in a “combative posture,” so the officer grabbed his wrist and brought him to the ground. The student hurt his arm on a nearby cactus in the struggle. The student then became uncooperative, yelling and thrashing around while he was escorted to the officer’s patrol vehicle. He was taken to Pima County Jail for charges related to theft, assault, minor in possession and a fake ID. The taxi driver told police he wanted to pursue criminal charges.

Car vandals on the loose

A non-UA affiliated woman reported vandalism to her 2010 Ford Explorer and three other cars in the Main Gate Parking Garage at 8:56 a.m. on April 7. The woman had parked her vehicle on the second floor of the garage the night before. When she returned, she noticed that the driver’s side mirror was shattered and there were gouge marks on both front windows as well as footprints on both the driver’s and passenger’s side doors. UAPD officers found a rock beneath the car that had particles of glass in it and was suspected to be the object used to break the mirror. Besides the woman’s Ford Explorer, three nearby vehicles had suffered similar damage. Police left a business card on the vehicles with UAPD contact information, and photos of the damage were submitted to evidence. There are currently no witnesses or suspects.

Department stores and online shopping can help fill “I shop around a lot, like sometimes you can find a your closets, but since when has anyone ever found specific Tumblr and people will just post where they anything unique at Dillard’s? Male fashionistas like you get their stuff,” said Tracy Martino, a tattoo artist at demand originality. “Tucson is one of those places where we’re very slow,” Sanctity on University Boulevard. “Sometimes, too, said Michael McKisson, an adjunct instructor of journal- it’s not too hard to make your own clothes. Especially ism at the UA and creator of “We get being a tattooer and all, it’s pretty easy for me to draw the new hot restaurant months after it’s everywhere else, something.” Martino often uses a company here in Tucson called so I don’t think there’s a lot of places to get [nice clothes] Yeah Right! to get his artwork screen-printed.

Kurt Vile shifts out of underground ALEX WHELAN

Arizona Daily Wildcat


Sometimes an album comes along that’s so fully realized you just can’t ignore it, and Kurt Vile’s new album Wakin On a Pretty Daze certainly smacks of crossover potential. It’s hard to imagine anyone hearing the gorgeous hum of opener “Wakin on a Pretty Day” and writing it off. Vile has never really concerned himself with reinventing the form, seemingly content to just smile and sing his two cents from a smoke-filled garage of guitars. What sets Vile’s lazy worldview apart is that he says it better than most of his competition, like in the killer opening lines to “Wakin on a Pretty Day”: “Wakin’ in the dawn of day / I can think about what I want to say / Phone ringing off the shelf / I guess he wanted to kill himself.” In lesser hands, such a striking study in contrast might be whispered out over a few acoustic

chords and a trumpet line. Instead, Vile uses these words as the jumping-off point for a nineand-a-half minute saga of hazy reverb and an almost meditative repetition of the word “yeah” that doesn’t go on for a second too long. Elsewhere Vile plays around with different musical structures that are less immediate, yet worthy of exploration nonetheless. “Was All Talk” opens with “Spirit in the sky / transparent to the eye” before veering between major and minor keys to great effect, all the while riding a beat that resembles Don Henley’s “The Boys of Summer.” On “Never Run Away,” Vile mumbles his way through a jaunty acoustic strummer that radiates warmth and sincerity like the idealistic early songs of Bruce Springsteen. When Vile stutters out “I know you’ll never run away … Amen,” it just sounds so damned assured, like the words of a man who’s figured out his life. Even the somber twelve-string epic “Pure Pain” sounds self-actualized, the jagged strums

of the verses giving way to the rolling snare-andtom work of a slowcore song without a hitch. Wakin On a Pretty Daze is the sound of Kurt Vile’s musical vision taken to new heights, a remarkable achievement considering his similarly successful work with ex-band The War on Drugs and on 2011’s Smoke Ring For My Halo. Given the ambling song lengths, the second half of the album drags just a tad more than the first, but with songs as good as “Too Hard,” the eight-minute running time is more than justified. It plays like Vile’s own tired prayer to goodness and his country, a vow to stop smoking so much weed and one of the most affirming, beautiful lines written yet this year: “I will promise to do my very best / to do my very best for you / and that won’t be too hard.” Wrapping it all up with the island escape fantasy of “Goldtone,” Vile ends what is undeniably one of the best indie records of 2013 on a quiet note.
