By Luke Money ARIZONA DAILY WILDCAT To the naked eye, the night sky is just a series of stationary dots. But to the iPhone, it is anything but. A new application called “Transient Events,”developed by the UA’s Catalina Sky Survey, in collaboration with the
Large Synoptic Survey Telescope, will provide a real-time data stream on dynamic celestial objects directly to an iPhone, iPad or iPod Touch. Known as transient objects, they vary in terms of brightness or position relative to the night sky and can be anything from asteroids to comets to supernovae.
“The sky is not as static as people might think,” said Suzanne Jacoby, the Large Synoptic Survey Telescope public outreach and education manager. “It’s moving, changing, even exploding on a nightly basis.” The application was developed in part as a large-scale beta test for the Large Synoptic Survey Telescope after

a similar project was conducted by the Catalina Sky Survey with the California Institute of Technology during a search for near-earth objects. “The researchers at Caltech sifted through the data looking for stationary transient objects,” said Edward SPACE APP, page 5

Meg Peterson, a business management and marketing junior, poses on the catwalk during an environmentally friendly fashion show put on by Students for Sustainability on the UA Mall on Monday. The fashion show educated the public about sustainability issues.
By Brenna Goth ARIZONA DAILY WILDCAT More than 20 eco-chic models worked the catwalk during Project Greenway on Monday. The event was hosted on the UA Mall and included a 30-minute fashion show as well as tents in which
featured vendors sold various, environmentally-friendly products. Students for Sustainability, a leadership program through ASUA, planned the event. The group works to implement environmentally friendly practices on campus and found that clothing is an important choice for college students.
“Clothing is a big thing for our generation,” said David Schmulenson, a communication sophomore who helped organize the event. The fashion show included four vendors who were chosen for their sustainable or fair trade practices. Many of the models sported
recycled, brand-name clothing from resale boutiques Buffalo Exchange and Plato’s Closet. Other outfits utilized organic fabrics or were created by artisans from around the world who are paid a living wage.
Foam fingers that say “UA is #1” in the geosciences department are not in reference to athletics, but academics. The U.S. World & News Report recently ranked the UA’s graduate geology program No. 1 in the nation . The program shares first place with the University of Michigan at Ann Arbor. “I’m absolutely thrilled. We have a great department, and it’s nice to be recognized as the number one department in the country,” said Susan Beck, a UA professor of geosciences . The university has 13 departments and colleges that rank in the top 10, according to the U.S. World & News Report rankings . The UA School of Earth and Environmental Sciences also ranked top in funding, with $11.6 million in grants from the National Sciences Foundation. Karl Flessa, the geosciences department head , said this has in part contributed to the success of the program. “We’re planning on having a celebration. I’m sure we’ll pop some corks off either champagne bottles or beer bottles,” Flessa said. Sarah Truebe, a second-year geosciences doctoral candidate , first informed Flessa of the department’s ranking. Truebe e-mailed Flessa after seeing a post on Facebook by a friend saying the UA was ranked number one. “I chose to come to the University of Arizona because I saw number of strengths in the earth sciences in general and specifically the geosciences department,” Truebe said. “It’s always nice to get the external validation on the awesomeness of our program.” Becoming the best didn’t just happen overnight. “I think the ranking reflects the effort of a lot of people over a really GEOLOGY, page 5

UA’s Law Society celebrates Earth Week By Bethany Barnes ARIZONA DAILY WILDCAT The first day of the UA Environmental Law Society’s Earth Week kicked off with a discussion about advocacy on Monday. “We wanted to do something for Earth Day and discovered it is the 40th anniversary of Earth Day,” said Alex Smith, president of the Environmental Law Society. Smith said upon finding out about the anniversary, the club decided to do something for the whole week. According to Smith, Earth Week looks to explore cutting-edge environmental topics. “I hope that people can get exposed to the core issues that are driving toward environmentalism right now,” Smith said. Sandy Bahr, director of the Sierra Club’s Gordon Bates/Arizona Daily Wildcat Grand Canyon chapter, gave the first Sandy Bahr, a member of the Sierra Club, spoke on Monday about presentation. environmental and political issues in the College of Law as part of the Bahr shared her experiences working for events during Earth Week leading up to Earth Day on Thursday.
the Sierra Club and examples of how she has worked to advocate for environmental issues specific to Arizona. She also talked about the state legislature and the challenges she faced when trying to advocate for the environment. “Now we’ve got this legislature that is trying to make it (so) that some of the best programs we have have no teeth,” Bahr said. Bahr stressed the value of having people engaged in the legislative process. “People make a difference in that process. You would be surprised; one person showing up from someone’s district … can totally turn the tide on things,” she said. First-year law student Andrew Spencer said he thought the presentation was enlightening and enjoyed the focus on Arizona. Spencer said he is looking forward to the other Earth Week presentations. “It’s always interesting to get people from the community,” Spencer said.

Musical theatre sophomore A musical theatre major? What roles have you played so far since you have been at the University of Arizona? Well, I was a random girl in “The Music Man,”and I was a workin’girl in“The Best Little Whorehouse in Texas”and now I am Mabel in“Violet.” Ah, I saw “Whorehouse.” So in workin’ girl you mean, you were … (Laughs.)Yeah, basically. OK, so you probably get this a lot, but what is your dream role? What do you hope to do after school? I want to move to NewYork and be on Broadway. Any Broadway show in particular that you would like to see yourself in? I mean, my favorite show is probably“Into the Woods.”And that is really cool because we are doing that here next year. Really? What role are you hoping for? Oh, wow! I can’t say this! Sure you can! No. No. No. (Laughs.) This is going to be in the newspaper! (Laughs.) OK, so this is a no comment? This is definitely a no comment. I am going to use this as my one “get out of jail free card!” OK, I’ll give you that. Switching topics: As a musical theatre major, what is your favorite class? Probably music theatre class. Whoa, (laughs) original title. I’m just joking. What do you do in that class? We sing our songs for our professor, and she helps us work on the acting in the songs. What do you think is your strong suit — dancing, singing, acting? Definitely singing. Would you consider yourself a triple threat? Um, yeah! OK, so I can expect to see you dancing, singing and acting on Broadway in the near future? Definitely! —Dallas Williamson

Cheruiyot — not that one! — wins Boston Marathon BOSTON — Let him be known from Hopkinton to the Back Bay as “Robert the Younger” — the second Kenyan named Robert K. Cheruiyot to win the Boston Marathon and the first person ever to run the legendary course in under 2 hours, 6 minutes. Robert Kiprono Cheruiyot won the 114th Boston race Monday, finishing in 2:05:52 to shatter by 82 seconds the course record set by four-time winner Robert Kipkoech Cheruiyot, who’s not related. American Ryan Hall, who finished third last year, missed another spot on the podium by
2 seconds, but his time of 2:08:41 was the fastest ever for U.S. runner in Boston. “Today was a breakthrough day,” said Hall, who was 6 seconds faster than Bob Kempainen in 1994.“Guys are paving new territory, and that’s good for us, too.” Ethiopia’s Teyba Erkesso took the women’s title in 2:26:11, sprinting to the tape to win by 3 seconds in the thirdclosest women’s finish in event history. Russia’s Tatyana Pushkareva smiled and waved at the TV cameras as she closed what had been a 90-second gap, but she could not quite catch Erkesso on

Volcano blows up Mileys’ travel plans
NEW YORK — The continued grounding of planes in Europe means Miley Cyrus must skip a trip to England, forced the world premiere of “Iron Man 2” to be moved from London to Los Angeles and prevented Sharon Jones & The Dap Kings from performing on “Late Show With David Letterman.” But if you’re a citizen of Iceland stuck in New York, you can score free tickets to “The 39 Steps.” Hundreds of thousands of passengers have been stranded around the world since a volcano in southern Iceland began erupting Wednesday, leaving a cloud of volcanic ash hanging over Europe and shutting down airports from England to Germany. Restrictions were starting to ease Monday, but not in time to prevent Miley Cyrus numerous postponements and other disruptions in the entertainment industry. Cyrus spokeswoman Meghan Prophet of PMK-BNC said Monday that the actress-singer would miss the British premiere of her current film, “The Last Song,” scheduled for Tuesday in London. Paramount Pictures and Marvel Entertainment announced they had moved the “Iron Man 2” premiere, scheduled for April 26, “due to the continuing air travel uncertainty.” Organizers of the Tribeca Film Festival were monitoring the situation for filmmakers and actors planning to fly from Europe for the New York festival, which begins Wednesday evening. Festival spokeswoman Tammie Rosen said they were“taking it flight by flight,” trying to reroute those with canceled flights and making contingency arrangements in case the delays extend through the week. “Late Night With Jimmy Fallon,” “The View” and “Live With Regis and Kelly” were among the television shows reporting no changes in programming. But “Late Show With David Letterman” spokeswoman Kim Izzo said that Jones & the Dap Kings, scheduled to perform Monday for a show airing Friday, had been on a European tour and were “still stuck overseas.”

ALEXANDRIA, Va. — Several dozen Second Amendment advocates — many with loaded handguns on their hips and rifles dangling from their shoulders — gathered in a park within view of the U.S. Capitol building on Monday, marking a day of protest against what activists called dangerous breeches of the U.S. Constitution. “It’s paid for in blood and, if necessary, we’ll defend it in blood!”said Bob Wright, one of the speakers at the “Restore the Constitution” protest at Gravelly Point, a national park just across the Potomac River from Washington. Organizers said they chose the spot to highlight what they see as unconstitutional gun laws. A recent law allows gun owners to carry firearms in some national parks, while openly carrying guns is prohibited under the
District of Columbia’s strict gun laws. Organizers said it’s the first armed rally in a national park since the law passed. “We want to get the message across to the other side of the Potomac that we’re tired of the Constitution not being followed,” said organizer Daniel Almond, as he held a paperback copy of the Declaration of Independence and the Constitution. Almond, a 31-year-old former Marine, carried an unloaded AR15 rifle, a bandoleer of loaded rifle magazines and a holstered pistol. He and others wore yellow ribbons across their forearms to indicate their weapons had been checked by volunteers and were in line with laws on ammunition and gun locks. Other, unarmed, advocates rallied on the National Mall. The crowd of hundreds that gathered near the Washington Monument was dotted with orange stickers that read “Guns
saves lives.” Almond said he chose the date for the event to coincide with the anniversary of the “firing of the first shot in the Revolutionary War.” It is also the 15th anniversary of the bombing of the courthouse in Oklahoma City. He was joined on the grassy lawn in Virginia by prominent figures in the militia movement, including Wright, who is affiliated with the 1st Brigade New Mexico Militia, and Mike Vanderboegh, a founder of the pro-gun Three Percenters, the group recently criticized by former President Bill Clinton for stoking extremism. “We are coming to a fundamental break where people, real people — the guilty and innocent alike — where people are going to be dying for their failure to understand,” he told the group, whose numbers were nearly matched by members of the media. “They start wars, these wannabe tyrants.”
Guilty plea in death of UNC student president THE ASSOCIATED PRESS RALEIGH, N.C. — The man accused of killing a University of North Carolina student body president found shot to death in the middle of a street two years ago pleaded guilty Monday to federal crimes, avoiding the death penalty. Demario Atwater, 23, pleaded guilty to several charges, including carjacking resulting in death and kidnapping. Prosecutors agreed to drop their plan to pursue the death penalty and Atwater agreed to a life sentence. Eve Carson, 22, of Athens, Ga., was found shot to death in the middle of a Chapel Hill street in March 2008. She had been shot five times, including once in the head with a 12-gauge shotgun. “While we deplore the evil and negligence that led to Eve’s death, we agree with the U.S. attorney’s decision to accept the plea agreement,” Carson’s parents said in a statement released by prosecutors Monday. Atwater is scheduled to be sentenced Sept. 23, and he still faces a murder charge in state court along with Laurence Lovette, who was only 17 at the time of the killing and is ineligible for the death penalty. Lovette does not face federal charges. Authorities believe Atwater and Lovette kidnapped Carson from outside her Chapel Hill home just before 4 a.m., stole her sport utility vehicle and took her to several ATMs, eventually withdrawing $1,400. Carson’s killing shocked the university community in Chapel Hill, outraged state lawmakers and highlighted problems within North Carolina’s
probation and parole system. A state investigation found that Atwater was never placed under intensive probation — which can include mandatory curfews, weekly contact and warrantless searches — despite two court orders to do so, the first dating to a February 2005 conviction on a pair of felony charges. When Atwater later told officials he was living in Durham, Wake County probation officers didn’t transfer his case there for more than two years. Lovette pleaded guilty to misdemeanor larceny and breaking and entering just two months before Carson’s death and received a two-year suspended sentence. He was then assigned to a Durham probation officer who said she was handling more than 120 cases even through she had yet to complete a basic training course. In the six weeks that followed, authorities in Durham arrested Lovette several times and charged him with nine crimes, including burglary, car theft, breaking and entering and resisting arrest. He was released after each arrest. U.S. Attorney Anna Mills Wagoner said Monday that the plea avoids the uncertainty and pain of a drawn-out trial and endless appeals. “A life sentence in the federal criminal justice system means just that: life without the possibility of parole or early release,”Wagoner said in a statement. Federal executions are rare. Only three people, including Oklahoma City bomber Timothy McVeigh, have been put to death by the federal government since it resumed executions in 2001 after a 38-year hiatus.

Earth Day 2010 looks beyond climate change O
ftentimes, Earth Day goes largely unnoticed. But this year, there has been a lot more hype than usual. That’s because Earth Day 2010 marks the 40th anniversary of the holiday — and the official Earth Day Campaign plans to raise more awareness than ever before as we recognize global issues this Thursday. Many people assume that Earth Day is mainly focused on environmental conservation. In an article on April 5 on the Go Green Energy Consulting blog, environmental writer Dan Grifen seemed to confirm this idea. He stated the following about Earth Day:“as individuals, we must remember and realize the importance of global warming and all of its implications.” However, his emphasis didn’t end there. Grifen continued to explain that our focus must go beyond the common topics of global warming and climate change. He added that Earth Day also raises concern about other pressing issues, such as rebuilding nations like Haiti and Chile, alleviating poverty, providing fresh water to the world, and finding alternatives to fossil fuels. This may seem like a lot of problems to take on, but the official Earth Day Campaign Miranda Butler completely agrees with Grifen’s Columnist position. It’s obvious that the campaign recognizes the importance of many issues in today’s world. On their website, the campaign states that,“Forty years after the first Earth Day, the world is in greater peril than ever … Earth Day 2010 is a pivotal opportunity for individuals, corporations and governments to join together and create a global green economy.” Consequently, the campaign’s site lists a variety of topics that are considered important“core issues.”Among them are advocacy, climate change, conservation & biodiversity, education, energy, food & agriculture, recycling & waste reduction, sustainable development and water. It’s a long list, and many of them involve various people and countries. The issues stem from deep within society and are caused by many complicated factors. Therefore, these are serious problems that won’t be easy to solve. They’ll take time, research and resources from all around the world. But that’s exactly the point. When we think of Earth Day in a broader way, the concept makes even more sense. Earth Day isn’t just about the physical earth. It includes all the people in it, and all the crises that we share. Earth Day emphasizes philanthropy and the coming together of many nations. It goes without saying that these are noble causes and every one of them is important to the future of the world. That’s why such issues should be especially important to us at the UA. As college students, the earth will be in our hands before we know it. The 40th anniversary of Earth Day is well-planned, with a serious focus and widespread knowledge of many global issues. But will the 50th anniversary be as well-off? What about the 60th? The 100th? As Earth Day comes around this week, we’ll have two options from which to choose. First, we can take the opportunity to stop and think for moment. We can acknowledge the responsibility that we have to our planet and our fellow man, searching for all kinds of issues, and looking for all kinds of solutions along the way. Or, we can shrug and think no further, concluding that it can’t be a real holiday if we don’t get the day off of school. But the second choice is a cowardly one. We can’t expect other people to fix the world for us. It’s our Earth, and our future that is on the line. So take a chance. Take Earth Day seriously this year. Even the smallest contribution could make a difference.
MAILBAG Letter to the editor As students, it is important to be aware of the upcoming May 18th Arizona Special Election where voters will have the opportunity to vote on Proposition 100, a referendum that will temporarily increase Arizona’s sales tax by one percent to protect education, public safety and health care. That is why I am grateful that the Arizona Daily Wildcat Editorial Board put in their “one cent” on the issue. I am especially grateful that the Daily Wildcat has recognized the consequences if voters reject Prop. 100 and encouraged readers to vote Yes on 100. All Wildcats will be adversely impacted if Prop. 100 doesn’t pass, which is why the Arizona Students’ Association has worked so diligently to register, educate, and mobilize students to vote Yes on 100. As an organization that works for affordable and accessible higher education in Arizona, this is our moment and our fight. The facts are clear: if Prop. 100 doesn’t pass, the UA alone would see an additional $42 million worth of budget cuts. That would bring the total university system cuts to $350 million over the past two years, or over 30 percent. That means students could face an additional $1,000 at minimum of a tuition increase, faculty salaries and financial aid will be cut. That’s why this is our fight and why you should vote Yes on 100! — Elma Delic Board Chair, Arizona Students’ Association
Comments from dailywildcat.com On ‘Our one cent on Prop. 100,’ April 19
I am voting against Prop. 100 because it is promoted as a “temporary” tax. There is no such thing as a temporary tax! Three years from now the state legislator will quietly renew the tax.Voters will be indifferent to continuing the tax because it will no longer be new. Government never decreases in size, it only increases. — Anonymous

The Facts: A group of about 1,000 Tea Party members went to the state capitol Thursday to protest taxation and federal influence. Our Opinion: The Tea Party deserves representation, but so do the millions of other North Carolinians. It does them a disservice when major political parties play to the likes of the Tea Party. Many law-abiding Americans spend April 15 each year putting the last touches on their tax return, fulfilling one of the basic tasks of citizenry and contributing back to the system which provides all residents with rescue services and basic law and order — just to acknowledge a small part of what taxes go toward. This image was in stark contrast to what members of the Tea Party did Thursday. The fringe element of about 1,000 people at the state capitol seized the day as an opportunity to protest Tax Day and, presumably, the state of the government. The right of speech and protest are essential to American democracy, without them people are little more than pawns in the hands of the empowered. But it’s disturbing to see political leaders — the empowered — acquiesce to a radical group like the Tea Party for fear of isolating a political base. Honestly, it’s pathetic to hear that the likes of Claude E. Pope Jr. , chairman of the Wake County Republican Party, would go to speak at an event for the Tea Party. Radicals deserve representation, but not from a political party attempting to serve as an umbrella for a broad group of interests. It speaks to the inefficiency of the U.S.’s two-party political

Tom, hopefully you will stay in Arizona once you graduate and help turn this ship around. We need all the help we can get. — UA Alum ‘Whatever, because at least we’ll be able to freely and anonymously carry guns into elementary schools’ There are good reasons not to support this legislation, but this isn’t one of them. 18 U.S.C 922(q) prohibits carrying firearms into a school zone — by federal law. — Anonymous What a liberal! First of all, you expose yourself as a wuss not being able to handle something new from KFC. I bet youre one of those girly men with low cut shirts that go to Core or IQ Fresh. Seriously, KFC is truly American; you talk trash about KFC, youre a communist. Second, you hate our new gun law. This is only what is gonna allow us to defend ourselves better from those dam illegals that come over the border. Yes we should be allowed to have guns with us. This is Arizona, the last true American Wild West. Unless youre in Phoenix or on the UA campus, this state is pretty rural. Your nearest cop is at least 30 minutes away, and his nearest backup may be an additional hour away. Guns are best in the hands of good law-abiding citizens. Then you hate the new immigration bill. All it means is, those dam illegals are gonna need another, of the other 3, states to illegally enter this country. Hell, they could go to liberal-ass California, where they just seem to take so much pride in harboring illegal aliens. I cant understand how everybody is sympathizing for them. Theyre lawbreakers that’s that. They may be doing it for a better life, but there is a right and a wrong way to come to America. I have not regretted moving to Arizona just last year to come to the UA. I’m beginning to dread returning to home in California because that place is infested with democrats. This is Arizona. God’s country. No gang members or illegal aliens are gonna take that away from this beautiful state. I love the direction this state is heading in. — Anonymous

system when an umbrella party which should represent a majority of constituents feels the need to hone in on a group of people defined by a desire to avoid taxes and fight federal influence. Regardless of your political preferences, liberal or conservative, it’s disheartening to see this sort of mindless politics. For successful political discourse, political parties must be allowed to actually represent their constituents; neither umbrella party does that right now, with both playing preference to some of their most extreme elements. It’s not just the Tea Party; it’s the lack of political diversification. Until Americans have a choice of viable third parties, these groups will continue to play a part in larger, umbrella-like organizations.

After its passing of a bill unfairly targeting immigrants as criminals, Arizona legislation has once again stepped off the deep end. Arizona has become the third state to allow people to carry a concealed weapon without requiring a permit. Gov. Jan Brewer signed the bill into law on Friday, favoring the constitutional right to bear arms. The measure takes effect in July and could not be a bigger mistake in this day and age. With everyone worried about health care and costs of the federal program, the state of Arizona has gone in the completely opposite direction. The dangers of the new law, which allows anyone over 21 to simply walk into a store and buy a gun, are immense. The passing of the law will only increase the number of accidents due to untrained kids owning firearms. Police are also
rightfully concerned with shooters in stressful situations, who accidentally strike innocent bystanders with stray bullets. Letting a recently legally-allowed-to-drink 21-year-old to buy a firearm could lead to dire consequences. The individual wakes up on his milestone birthday and goes out to a bar — following a bingedrinking rampage with his friends, he goes out to buy a weapon and, while the salesman sees the inexperience in the birthday boy, he has the right to purchase the gun. With no classes required or permits needed, there is sadly nothing stopping him from showing up on the late news as the guy who went on a birthday killing rampage. Those who argue that the law is just another step in protecting our civil rights seem to be stuck in a different century. The law is archaic and was meant to protect our freedoms from an oppressive government rather than give us uncontrolled use of firearms. It was a compromise back in the 1700s, and it is a mistake today. It simply does not apply to the modern world. Those who fear another suppressive government fear the wrong thing — rather than “protecting” our freedoms, we must face the economic blunders to which our government exposes us. Taking trillions of dollars of taxpayers’ money is only one example, if that. Firearms are simply not the right method of fighting back. There are lots of 21-year-olds who lack the maturity to sit through a high school health class on “safe-sex,” let alone handle a firearm. In these cases — as they are predominant — people should know how to operate a gun and the law regarding it. Without this law or any required courses, the case for safe gun handling can hardly be made.

FASHION continued from page 1
Asking ‘How is it made?’ key to conscious shopping
“Our goal is basically to create awareness in the student body about what they’re wearing,” Shmulenson said. “Fashion can look great and still have sustainable practices.” Students do not always know where their clothing comes from; many products are made in sweatshops or use materials that are harsh on the environment. “People asking ‘How it is made?’ is key when buying stuff,” said Melissa McCormick, co-owner of Toque de Pasión Boutique, a featured vendor. The store exclusively sells organic and fair-trade items. “You can get tons of lovely stuff that doesn’t
exploit anyone,” McCormick said. Kelly Mulholland, owner of Nurturing Nature, another featured vendor, said people want to buy sustainable products and need to know where to find them. “There are socially conscious consumers who want to make a difference,” Mullholand said. “They need the opportunity to do so.” Some students who watched the fashion show found that it sparked their interest in eco-fashion. “I thought it was clever and really cool,” said Victoria Tulk, a media arts sophomore . “It’s fun that it was on campus. It’s different.”

POLICEBEAT By Bridgette Doran ARIZONA DAILY WILDCAT
You snooze, you lose
A UA student reported a stolen computer on Wednesday at 6:24 p.m. after she had been studying in McClelland Hall. The woman told a University of Arizona Police Department officer that she was studying on the third floor of the Eller College when she decided to rest her eyes for five to 10 minutes between 4:15 p.m. and 4:30 p.m. While she was resting, the woman sensed someone sit down next to her. When she looked up, she saw a woman, turned her head and went back to sleep. After 10 minutes, the woman woke up and saw that her laptop was missing. She was unable to give a full description of the woman that had been sitting near her. She could not say if that was the person who took her computer for sure. The laptop was valued at $350. The woman was issued her victim’s rights. There were no witnesses to the theft.
Finders keepers, losers weepers
A UAPD officer arrived to the Modern Languages building on Tuesday at 10:41 a.m. after a student called to report he had found his missing bicycle. The man told the officer that his black Colorado Raleigh road bike had been stolen and he had reported the incident with Tucson Police Department. The man did not have any paperwork proving that the bike was his, but did describe modifications that he had made to the bike. He also showed the officer photos of a very similar bicycle. Since the man could not prove the bike was his, the officer told him that the incident would be documented, but the bike could not be returned to him. The officer told the man that he would try to contact the new“owner”of the bike the man would be told of any new information about the bike. The officer left a note on the bicycle for the owner to call UAPD and provided a case number. The owner has not made contact with UAPD.
Should have gone to Kinko’s
A Parking andTransportation appeals officer called UAPD on Wednesday at 1:48 p.m. after finding a woman using a fake parking permit. The UAPD officer met with the appeals officer at the Parking and Transportation building at 1117 E. Sixth St. When the officer spoke with the woman being held in the conference room, she admitted that she had made a copy of a parking permit and had been using it to park on campus. The UA student said that she had gotten out of class and found that her car was missing. UAPD told her that he car had been towed because of the fake permit. The woman stated that she and her friend had split the cost of a UA parking permit at the beginning of the 2009-2010 school year because they had classes on different days. She said that sometimes she could not get a hold of her friend to use the permit and this had been making her late for class, so she decided to make a colored copy of the permit. The woman also told the officer that her friend thought that the whole thing was wrong. The officer called the friend and she said that she did not know the permit had been copied until a week earlier and did not know how her friend had been getting to school. The woman was cited and released for theft of services.
Happy 21st, welcome to jail
A UAPD officer was on bike patrol on April 7 at 12:12 a.m. on Martin Avenue when he noticed a man running around the parking lot of Dirtbags bar jumping on a car. The officer noticed the man climb on top of a Honda coup and jumping up and down on the hood of the car and roof. He also kicked the front of the car and the windshield. Once the man noticed the officer he got off the car and started running north on Speedway Boulevard. The officer stopped the man and asked if it was his car that he was jumping on. The man said it belonged to his friend and pointed to a man standing nearby. He told the officer that his friend was there to pick him up. The officer asked the friend if it was his car and he said no. He also told the officer that it was the man’s 21st birthday and he was at the bar to celebrate. At 11:45 p.m. the man had been asked to leave the bar by Dirtbags security because he had gotten too drunk. The officer found the owner of the car inside the bar. The UA student was working as a hostess for the bar. She identified the car as hers and told the officer that all damage done to the car was new. Damage included dents on the hood, roof, bumper and a shattered windshield. The woman was given her victim’s rights and photos of the damage were placed into UAPD property as evidence. The man was arrested for intentional criminal damage and transported to Pima County Jail. Police Beat is compiled from official University of Arizona Police Department reports.

DWSPORTS Baseball to face No. 1 ASU Softball

Arizona freshman first baseman Rafael Valenzuela connects on a pitch during the Wildcats’ 12-11 comeback win against Washington State on Sunday at Sancet Stadium. Valenzuela will take on a leadership role when the team takes on No. 1 ASU in Tempe tonight.
Sun Devils to host Wildcats in mid-week game By Michael Fitzsimmons ARIZONA DAILY WILDCAT It has been a roller coaster ride of a season for the No. 17 Arizona baseball team. After a so-so start, the young Wildcats (26-9, 7-5 Pacific 10 Conference) won 15 straight games in dominant fashion, garnering national media attention and vaulting into every major collegiate poll. Questions arose, though, after a four-game losing streak and a lackluster series in which they were swept on the road by California. Would the young Arizona team bounce back? After taking care of Washington and Gonzaga on the road, and fresh off an exciting sweep of Washington State, the answer has proven to be yes. But there will always be questions about a team with 17 freshmen and only two seniors, no matter how legitimate the Wildcats appear. And
the most recent question is how Valenzuela’s response to the all of the new faces will handle inevitable hecklers? Ignore them. the intensity of playing No. 1 ASU “I just try to ignore it as tonight at 6:30 in Tempe. much as possible,” said the Team Conference Overall “It’s hard to say because they senior first baseman. “The ASU 9-3 31-3 weren’t here.

Lanky lefty becoming relevant By Mike Schmitz ARIZONA DAILY WILDCAT When Arizona freshman hurler Augey Bill stepped foot on Jerry Kindall Field for the start of official practices, he was viewed by most as six feet and eight inches of pure potential, with little short-term value. But after 35 games, the lanky lefty has made massive strides. So big, in fact, that Arizona (26-9, 7-5 Pacific 10 Conference) head coach Andy Lopez
may very well give Bill the start in today’s game against the ESPN/USA Today’s No. 1 ASU. “You can’t judge a book by its cover, and I’m the biggest at fault on that,” Lopez said after a 5-3 victory over Washington State on Friday.“Big, long freshman, I think, ‘Oh my gosh, he’s a freshman.’ But the smart guy that I am, everyone on our club is a freshman. “He’s doing a much better job,” Lopez added. With two outs in the ninth inning
and the tying run at the plate last Friday against Washington State, Lopez called on Bill to preserve Kurt Heyer’s 14-strikeout performance and give the Wildcats the victory. It was three strikes — game over. “He’s my roommate. Hey, he backs me up so I’m happy with that,” Heyer said of Bill’s performance. “I was like, ‘Oh man, you’ve got to strike this guy out, come on. I did that for you, now you’ve got to do that for me.’” And Bill, who is becoming the perfect
lefty specialist, got the job done. He was called upon in the next two games against WSU, and pitched a combined 1 2/3 innings of scoreless baseball. A few weeks ago, when the Wildcats were looking for a No. 3 starter, Bill was near the bottom of the totem pole. Arizona is still searching for that Sunday guy, but the Danville, Calif. native has pitched himself to the top of the list. BASEBALL, page 12
The Pacific 10 Conference schedule always demands effort and focus of the eight colligate softball teams in the league. But this year, it demands even more. The Pac-10 has reorganized its weekend schedule so that every team plays a weekend three-game series against a single team, rather than switching off between a two-game series with one team and a single game with another team. The change has redefined the conference momentum. “I think this is a big weekend and Fridays have become a big game,” said Arizona head coach Mike Candrea. “Getting the win on Friday in a three-game series is huge.” The idea of a sweep evolved from taking a 2-0 advantage in a season series to actually rattling off three wins over a three-day period. In a conference where the softball IQ is so high that players can make adjustments between batters, seeing hitters and pitchers multiple times can change the way the game is played. The momentum swing goes to the team that can show as little as possible and still get the job done. “I don’t want to see teams that we’re going to see in postseason see Kenzie (Fowler) three times,” Candrea said about keeping the element of surprise. For the No. 3 Wildcats, starting the weekend on the right foot has become a crucial part of how the weekend plays out. The Wildcats lost a heartbreaking 2-1 contest in their Friday game at the Washington Huskies as an unearned run crossed the plate in the third inning. The Wildcats were unable to rebound from the Game 1 loss, suffering their first three-game losing streak of the season after dropping Game 2, 7-0, and Game 3, 9-3. “You get your backs against the wall, you find out a lot about yourself,” Candrea said. “What doesn’t kill you makes you stronger, I always say. “Last weekend didn’t kill us but the bottom line was how do we come out and react this weekend,” he added after Friday night’s 3-2 win over No. 10 Stanford. Against Stanford, Arizona was able to hold on for the 3-2 win in Game 1 on Friday. The Wildcat offense was able to chase Cardinal ace Teagan Gerhart from the game and was successful at getting at Stanford pitchers the rest of the weekend. “We needed to get our confidence back, especially with a good pitcher,” freshman Brigette Del Ponte said. “We needed to get our confidence. Our confidence was pretty low.” Friday-night wins have given Arizona a way to get ahead and take the series momentum. If the Wildcats can jump on opponents early in the single series, they’ll continue to make adjustments and challenge opposing pitchers deep in the series.
Handling the bullpen
Candrea combats winning versus overuse with improving Fowler

“The balls that were hit were balls that were left on the plate,” he added. “I think she came in and we had a good discussion about the weekend. It was beneficial for her.” Fowler, whose pitches can top 90 mph, was reminded that speed isn’t always the name of the game. Trying to mix up her pitches, Fowler shut down a seventh inning Cardinal rally in Friday’s 3-2 nail-biter. Candrea called her performance one of the “defining moments of a pitcher’s career.” With the tying score on and shortstop Jenna Rich up to bat, Fowler took the game into her own hands. Jumping on Rich with a 1-2 count, Fowler did exactly what she hadn’t against the Huskies a week prior — finish off the batter with an offspeed screwball. The strategy?
It was no surprise that when refocused ace Kenzie Fowler stepped into the circle this weekend, the Arizona softball team also looked refreshed, bouncing the Stanford Cardinal in a three-game sweep. As Fowler goes, the Wildcats go, but therein lies a dilemma: When does she wear out? “I don’t feel like I can throw Kenzie out there every day for the rest of the year and keep her strong,” head coach Mike Candrea said.“On the other hand, you’ve got to get her in the mindset that when we get into postseason, she may have to go three games in a row.” Sitting in the No. 2 pitching position is senior Sarah Akamine. Last season, she developed into option 1a during a year in which Arizona didn’t consistently have a dominant pitcher. Still, Akamine pitched well enough to land Arizona in the Women’s College World Series, going 22-8 with a 2.52 ERA. But with a similar offense this year, Akamine has struggled with a 3.38 ERA. Her win total sits at a solid 11-2,
but it doesn’t show how apt Candrea is to throw in Fowler if Akamine begins to struggle. Candrea did just that during Sunday’s game against Cardinal, replacing Akamine after 2 1/3 innings and three earned runs that put Arizona in a hole. “We need Sarah, and we need her in a big way to get through this (season),” Candrea said. “She needs to battle through this right now.” “She’s not pitching with a lot of confidence,” he added. “She’s over the plate a lot. When you’re battling Pac-10 hitters, that’s not a good thing.” And with Akamine struggling, it’s hard for a man as competitive as Candrea to leave Fowler sitting in the dugout. After breaking down the game film from a week prior — one that saw No. 1 Washington rip Arizona in three games — Fowler looked sharp as ever during the Stanford series. “I think it was a little bit of shock,” Candrea said of Fowler’s experience in Seattle. “Once we sat down and we looked at the video, we showed her we were getting beat on 1-2, 0-2 counts. She just has to be more careful with those counts in this league.”

â€œJust mix it around,â€? Fowler said of the final out. â€œWe went out and went back in. Just keep it in the infield, (we) didnâ€™t want to give her something she can get extended on.â€? While thatâ€™s a positive area of growth, it only gives Candrea more reason not to pitch the freshman. He plans to throw Akamine in the finales of three-game series, giving potential postseason opponents less batting time against Fowler. But for that to happen, Candrea is left waiting for Akamine to find her groove. â€œLast year, she knew the team was depending on her and rose to the occasion,â€? he said. â€œRight now, sheâ€™s not feeling that way, but sheâ€™s got to feel that way. I think the big thing right now is to get her out there and have a good outing. â€œAnd really, if she can give me five good innings, four good innings, it saves some innings on the other end.â€?
After one day of play, the Arizona womenâ€™s golf team is in sixth place at the Pacific 10 Conference Championship â€” 11 strokes behind the nationâ€™s No. 1 team, ASU â€” in Eugene, Ore. The Wildcats, who sit at 5-over-par, failed to have a player shoot below 1-over-par. Arizona sophomores Nikki Koller and Isabella Boineau and freshman Sherlyn Popelka all sit at 1-over-par. Senior Alejandra Llaneza shot 2-over-par, and sophomore Margarita Ramos shot a 4-over-par 76. Joanne Lee of California is the individual leader after round one at 5-under-par. Koller, Boineau and Popelka are all in a tie for 15th, with Llaneza in 25th and Ramos in 31st. USC, UCLA, California and host University of Oregon round out the top5.

Walking slowly across the confettilittered court, Noah stopped at the spot just outside the arc where LeBron James had pulled up in his face and made a 3-pointer. â€œThatâ€™s a long way,â€? Noah said, shaking his head in disbelief as he looked at the distant rim. â€œYouâ€™ve got to be kidding me.â€? The Chicago Bulls kept daring James to shoot jumpers. He obliged. â€œThey were telling me I canâ€™t make jump shots,â€? James said.â€œThey asked me to shoot a jumper so I did that.

Alexander Ovechkin and the Washington Capitals withstood the pressure of their first playoff period in Montreal. Then they dumped it all back on Canadiens goalie Jaroslav Halak. Ovechkin scored the fourth goal of Washingtonâ€™s second-period outburst, leading the Capitals to a 5-1 win over Montreal on Monday night and a 2-1 lead in their Eastern Conference series. Semyon Varlamov who got the nod over Jose Theodore, made 26 saves in his first start of the series for Washington, which has won two in a row after losing the opener 3-2 in overtime.

How can I convince my best friend to stop drinking during the weekends? It’s a serious problem that is getting in the way of our friendship.
to get someone to do something they don’t want to do can be A. Trying a challenge. But here are some tips to help you approach the subject and increase your success. Be a friend, show your concern and don’t worry about being too polite to bring up the subject. By not speaking up you can appear to condone your friend’s behaviors. Peer interventions can influence behavior change so you already have the “friend” advantage. Choose your favorite approach (or both):
• Choose a time when you both can talk and when you’re calm (not when you’re angry or upset with him/her). • Be factual. Tell your friend exactly how you feel and how his/her drinking is interfering with your friendship and how you care about them. Give specific instances of their behavior that you observed. When someone is intoxicated, it’s likely they won’t remember how their behavior impacted others. • Hold your friend accountable. Don’t cover up, clean up or protect them from the consequences of their drinking. Your friend may believe that their drinking is under control and may minimize the problems. That’s where you come in... don’t make excuses for their behavior or say “that’s ok.”

The Arizona Daily Wildcat • Your primary outlet to the student market
= how much UA students spend on entertainment each year
• Suggest non-alcohol related activities that you both enjoy. Then don’t take no for an answer. Offer to drive there or make the arrangements. Invite others along. • Hang out with friends who drink less, a lot less. • If you end up going to a drinking event, go later. This decreases the amount of time to drink. Go out to eat first. Set limits. Your friend is lucky to have a concerned friend. If you need additional coaching, consider calling Counseling & Psychological Services for assistance: 520-621-3334. Good luck. Of those UA students who drink, 65% said they stop drinking 1-2 hours before going home. (2009 Health & Wellness Survey, N=1,720)

Big Bird developing as Arizona’s answer on the mound
The man better known as Big Bird around the clubhouse has the tools to be the answer to Arizona’s dilemma, and he is only going to get better. “He’s really developed,” Lopez said.“He has good work ethic. Sharp kid. He’s easy to teach. You can work on things with him and he adapts real quick.” A lot of that adaptability has to do with Bill’s brains. “He’s a brilliant kid, brilliant student and a real good pitcher — Kurt Heyer now,” Lopez said. UA pitcher Bill was being heavily recruited by MIT, but wasn’t able to get into one of the nation’s best schools. Arizona was his plan B, but he couldn’t be happier in the desert. “I’m loving it here,” he said. “I’m so glad I came here. I’ve been improving a lot and I still have a long way to go.” After 35 games, Bill is now relevant in Arizona’s pitching circuit. He picked up his first win of the season after allowing only one hit and one run in 3 innings of work against Gonzaga on April 12 , and has shined out of the pen ever since. Although he is making a push for that No. 3 spot, Bill’s true value will be in the years to come. He throws in the mid-80s right now, but with his frame and release, low-to-mid-90s is right around the corner. “He’s going to fill out and be the next Randy Johnson in my eyes,” said Heyer of his roommate. “He just needs to grow that hair out a little longer and he’ll be good.” It may be a little early to call Bill the next Randy Johnson, but with his frame, work ethic and willingness to learn, the sky is the limit for the lanky lefty. “He’s got huge potential,” Heyer said. “He’s really going to be a factor Size: 65 Template: for us in the future, and hopefully Rodney Haas/Arizona Daily Wildcat he keep pitching Div:can 9 Date: 4-20 like he has Arizona freshman pitcher Augey Bill goes through his windup during a 9-8 loss to Oregon on March 28 at Sancet Stadium. Bill has made huge strides this season and is proving to be a candidate as the team’s No. 3 starter. been for us.”
He’s going to fill out and be the next Randy Johnson in my eyes.
