SERVING THE UNIVERSITY OF ARIZONA SINCE 1899
For UA use only Policy changes will prohibit those not affiliated with the university from using some library computers By Samantha Munsey DAILY WILDCAT
A new policy for some campus libraries requires that all UA affiliates use a NetID to log in before they tech out. Starting May 14, all computers located in the Manuel T. Pacheco Integrated Learning Center, the ScienceEngineering Library and the Fine Arts Library will require a UA NetID to gain access. The new policy, which will be enacted after finals, was a result of
the failed current policy that tried to expand computer use for students by restricting non-UA members’ time. “We are now at the stage where we are going to put logins on all of the computers, and that way the policy will enforce itself,” said Travis Teetor, operations supervisor for UA libraries. The libraries restricted community members who did not have a CatCard or library card to publicly available computers located on the fifth tier of the Information Commons in November 2011, based on student
feedback about increasing the number of computer spaces. Community members then received a computer card that allowed them access for 60 minutes before getting logged out. But due to budget cuts, the library was unable to use staff members to monitor the policy and, as a result, it was not fully embraced, Teetor said. “We have found that people are still using computers they are not authorized to use,” he said. “We were hoping the policy in itself would change behavior, but it didn’t.” Teetor said he thinks the new pol-
icy will compel non-UA members to use the computers provided to them in tier five. “The numbers of public workstations are not sufficient for the student demand much of the time, and public use has impaired student access to equipment,” Teetor added. “Public use is impacting the work we need to accomplish so that students and faculty are successful in their learning and research needs.” Sgt. Juan Alvarez, public information officer for the University of Arizona Police Department, said
UAPD responds to a number of calls from the libraries regarding misconduct in their facilities. Alvarez said he is uncertain if the new policy will change anything or curb the number of calls the department receives. “The actual use or non-use of the computer we do not monitor,” Alvarez said. “We just take the call and respond to the individual facts of the case.” The new policy is expected to go
Credit-Wise Cats teach kids about finance By Kevin Reagan DAILY WILDCAT
The UA’s Credit-Wise Cats live by one motto: There’s no crying in finance. The organization began with just five members in 2000, and aims to improve the financial literacy of young adults in local schools. The group now includes 15 ambassadors that partner with programs and community businesses to put on interactive personal finance workshops. On Saturday, the Credit-Wise Cats invited 14 high schools in Tucson to take part in a competition that challenged their financial literacy. Young students could be seen chasing after footballs while simultaneously being asked questions about assets and liabilities at the third annual Arizona Financial Face-Off. Events of the face-off tested the students’ knowledge in four categories — credit reports, savings and spending plans, credit cards and creating a budget. “Our ambition is to create a financially informed youth while still letting the kids have some fun,” said Juan Ciscomani, manager of Credit-Wise-Cats. Attendees spent their Saturday morning building a credit history by competing in games like “Budget Ball,” which parallels the structure of ultimate Frisbee, or “Financial Feud,” a spoof of the game show “Family

into effect in mid-May, so it does not interfere with the current computer habits of students, Teetor said. Carlos Rodriguez, a prephysiology freshman who regularly studies in the ILC, said he thinks the policy should be implemented sooner as a way to free up more computer space during finals week. “I don’t know why we don’t already have logins for the computers,” Rodriguez said.

Feud.” The goal of these games was to earn enough points to make it into the top-six bracket, and those who did went on to the second half of the competition, where students had to figure out the best way to purchase a house. “It’s really to get them thinking and to make critical decisions,” said Annalisa Moreno, a sponsor of the event from the Tucson Association of Realtors. Moreno served as one of the judges for the real estate section of the competition, during which she surveyed the school’s creativity and implantation of knowledge in realistic family scenarios. Preparation of the event began back in August when members of Credit-Wise Cats first started traveling to various schools in Tucson and teaching financial workshops to students. The Credit-Wise Cats initially began hosting workshops for UA students 11 years ago, but when they started receiving invitations from schools in the surrounding neighborhood, they became aware of a lack of financial education in the public school system. “Schools don’t have the training or resources, so we come in and take care of it
“It makes sense because we, as students, pay for the computers, and we should be allowed access when we need them.” Students pay $120 in fees to support technology used in libraries on campus. The libraries are able to accommodate everyone who needs to use books and documents, Teetor said, but must curb the demand for computer use due to budget restrictions. “This is all to try and make sure all the resources are available to the students first and foremost,” Teetor said. “And this policy should help with that.”
for them,” Ciscomani said. “Parents are not comfortable talking about finances with their kids, so the students are able to relate more with college students coming in and teaching them about finance.” The Credit-Wise Cats teach about 80 workshops off-campus throughout the year, and about 20 to 25 on the UA campus. The club goes through a two-month training period of financial education and public speaking before it is permitted to conduct a workshop. “I still can’t believe they pay me to do this,” said Chelsy McHone, a senior studying retailing and consumer sciences and a member of Credit-Wise Cats. McHone said she is lucky to be a member of the team, since the organization only hires 10 students every year out of an applicant pool of about 200. After a long day of becoming financially savvy, the top six high school teams were evaluated on the portfolio they’d been building throughout the competition. A check for $800 was the first place prize, while $600 and $450 were the cash prizes for second and third place, respectively. Each of the remaining 14 teams also went home with a $100 prize. “At this point hopefully we’ve taught them to not blow their prize money on a pizza party,” Ciscomani said.
White House staffers cleared in scandal Mcclatchy tribune
WASHINGTON — An internal review found no evidence that White House staff members engaged in “improper conduct” in Cartagena, Colombia, White House spokesman Jay Carney said, but he confirmed that a member of a military communications team that supports the White House is under investigation for partying with prostitutes before the president’s visit earlier this month. Carney said the Office of White House Counsel conducted the review of White House staff members “out of due diligence” and not in response to a “specific credible allegation.” The Colombian prostitution scandal has consumed much of Washington for more than a week and led to rampant speculation, as reports of heavy drinking and hard partying among a Secret Service and military advance team have leaked out. “There is no indication that the White House advance team engaged in any improper conduct or behavior,” Carney said. An employee of the White House Communication Agency, however, is under investigation, Carney confirmed. The agency, known as WHCA, is a military unit that provides technical support for presidential travel. It works closely with White House staff but reports to the Defense Department. The agency is the third to become ensnared in the controversy. A dozen Secret Service agents and 11 military service members are suspected of cavorting with 21 prostitutes in the days before the president arrived in Colombia for the Summit of the Americas on May 13. Six of the agents have lost their jobs, one has been cleared and five remain on leave. The Pentagon investigation
is still underway. Carney tried to distance the White House from the WHCA, whose employees are not hired or overseen by White House staff. “It is a defense logistics agency,” Carney said. “They are no more members of the White House staff than Secret Service personnel who you see every day on the grounds here are members of the White House staff.” A WHCA website describes the unit as seeking out “the best of the best” from all branches of the military. “The opportunities for travel abound, and nowhere else in the Department of Defense are the challenges and responsibilities greater,” it reads. Carney said the review of the White House staff occurred last week, but would not discuss details. He complained that it was prompted in part because of rumors circulating on websites “with no editors and no conscience.” Secretary Leon Panetta says the Defense Department has suspended the security clearance of military members under investigation for possible roles in the Secret Service sex scandal that took place in Colombia earlier this month, The Associated Press reported. Panetta told reporters Monday about the disciplinary action against the service members first embroiled in the scandal en route to Colombia, where he was making a longscheduled visit to meet with defense officials there. It was not clear how many of the service members had security clearances. “My biggest concern is the issue of security and what could possibly have been jeopardized by virtue of this kind of behavior,” Panetta said.

“I pride myself in doing a lot of activities that are aimed at outreach, and to get that recognition from my colleague and peers is humbling and a sense of overwhelming,” Fletcher said. In addition to this, Fletcher coordinates the UA’s specialty program in bilingual multicultural special education. The program prepares teachers to work with children who have diverse backgrounds and to appropriately assist the needs of students in bilingual schools. Fletcher also participates in conferences in Cuba, the Dominican Republic, Nicaragua, Peru, Costa Rica, Chile and Ecuador. He is also working on creating a new educational concept, “inclusive education,” which focuses on educating all children regardless of their cultural differences. “As a professor, you don’t know what your impacts are going to be,” he said. “But it’s important to see a concrete in the center that provides opportunity for families and children to improve their lives.” His personality and willingness to collaborate allow him to successfully work with others, Fletcher said. He worked with Kelly Metz, a third-year graduate student, to get her an internship in Mexico. “He is easygoing, flexible and positive,” Metz said. “Professor Fletcher provides students with good learning opportunities where you have the chance to apply skills you’ve learned in the community.”
“Shocked,” “delighted” and “surprised” were the words Stevens used to describe how she felt upon receiving the award. As the executive director of the Southwest Institute for Research on Women, Stevens has collaborated with different schools, organizations and government agencies on research to offer lifelong services to both men and women. “The recognition for me was fantastic on a personal level, but it was also fantastic because I think it represents the work that SIROW has collectively done over the year,” Stevens said, noting the work the institute has done within the community and across the nation. Stevens said that, because of its location, the institute has been able to conduct outreach education and research in Arizona as well as New Mexico, Wyoming,

Texas, Colorado, Utah and Nevada. The institute informs organizations on local and national policy issues and deals with issues like immigration, criminal justice, substance abuse and sexual health. Its programs aim to help women receive aid and access within their communities. The institute is now working on 30 projects across the nation. “It’s nice to be recognized for both myself and SIROW, who does so much for the community,” she said. “And it (the award) does push the envelope a little further in terms to continue our work with the community.”

Scandal proves US only human Megan Hurley Daily Wildcat
mericans need to remember government employees are just as human as anyone else. They make mistakes — like possibly getting involved with prostitutes in a foreign country — and trying to act high and mighty only makes the American government appear hypocritical. “As many as 21 suspected prostitutes … allegedly joined members of the Secret Serviceled advance team who were in Cartagena, Colombia, to arrange security before President (Barack) Obama arrived to attend the weekend Summit of the Americas,” according to the Los Angeles Times. So far, 12 Secret Service and 11 military personnel have been implicated in the scandal. In addition to payments to prostitutes, personnel have been accused of heavy drinking and visits to strip clubs. In the United States, there is an ethical uproar over prostitution. From the women’s liberation movement to ideological concerns, the prostitution industry garners criticism for the objectification of women. But prostitution is a prominent and — in some areas like parts of Cartagena — legal industry in Colombia. The behavior of U.S. government officials abroad raises questions about having an American presence in other countries. The American government has invaded places like Guam and Puerto Rico, yet still managed to promote the purity of its value system. American politicians uplifted the United States and at the same time made it clear that if a country contradicted American values, the country was simply underdeveloped compared to the greatest superpower on Earth. The president of the United States is commonly referred to as “the ruler of the free world,” especially in relation to the notion of American exceptionalism. Traditionally, exceptionalism has been used to assert the United States’ duty to spread the ideals of democracy and liberty across the world, but it is also sometimes used to assert the superiority of the United States. But the behavior of the Secret Service members and military personnel implicated demonstrates the risks of a holierthan-thou attitude, and now it is costing the United States the reputation it has unsuccessfully attempted to uphold. Holding the United States to an impossible ideal — completely pristine, untouchable in its moral superiority — is unrealistic. America isn’t built on “family values.” It’s about the liberty of getting to choose what to do or not do. Prostitution isn’t absolutely morally acceptable or unacceptable. Morals vary by the individual, and they’re not the equivalent of legislation. What is moral may not be legal and vice versa. Furthermore, American law is not the same as international law. Americans want to take pride in the good things this country has created, but they also need to admit that Americans abroad have the chance to do what they want that is legal in other countries outside of the United States. No one — and no country — is perfect. — Megan Hurley is a journalism junior. She can be reached at email@example.com or on Twitter via @WildcatOpinions.

CU Independent University of Colorado
Daily Emerald University of Oregon “New bill would introduce Big Brother to the Internet”
“Help, help, I’m being oppressed!” Personally, I squealed with delight when I heard that I would have to show my BuffOne Card to get into campus. Gladly, officer. I was also pleased with their choice to spray fish-based fertilizer on Norlin quad. It was a remarkable touch — a big middle finger to everyone who wants to toke up on the field. I’m surprised it took the administration this long. The administration should have nipped the nascent movement in the bud back when it took place on Farrand Field. But they chose not to — maybe in an attempt to seem liberal and hip. And as the saying goes, if you give a pothead a cookie, he’s going to want to invite all of his friends and through a strange stoner alchemy, turn that cookie into 10,000 bong rips and declare it a display of civil disobedience. People seem to be forgetting that they are breaking the law. Sure, marijuana is legal in Colorado for myriad medical conditions like glaucoma, back pain, low appetite, night sweats, unusually moist mouth and low levels of “urge to fight the man,” but for us common folk, it’s still against the law. As a representative from the Colorado chapter of the American Civil Liberties Union, Mark Silverstein said in the recent Daily Camera article that by closing campus, “The university does a disservice to the values that underlie the First Amendment and the constitutionally protected right to dissent.” I call shenanigans. The thing I’m struggling to understand is why everyone else thinks shutting down campus is a hostile move. If anyone remembers from freshman orientation, CU is a substance-free campus, and every other day of the year is staunchly against illegal activity on school grounds — obviously. Heck, a handful of kids just got in trouble for spray painting stencils on the sidewalk, but every year they let slide a few thousand people turning campus into a bong.
In the wake of the supposed death of the Stop Online Piracy Act, a brutal policy that would have threatened the concept of Internet privacy and freedom that Americans have come to enjoy, a new piece of legislation has slipped below the media radar to attack these rights once again: The Cyber Intelligence Sharing and Protection Act. CISPA was introduced in November by Representative Michael Rogers (R-MI). Its main goal is to protect the government against cyber attacks, but it shouldn’t be much of a surprise that the bill still manages to overreach its goal and threaten simple online civil liberties. The problem is the level of surveillance this bill will allow the federal government over literally everything everybody does online. I’m all for protecting against cyber attacks; indeed, it would be irresponsible of the U.S. government to not take these attacks seriously. However, these attacks can be dealt with without allowing the private Internet activity of the everyday American to be presented on a smorgasbord of privileged information to government officials under the guise of preventing cyber terrorism. And, honestly, I don’t have any dirty secrets online that I feel threatened about having found out by the government — it’s not the information being seen that I’m concerned about. It’s the information being used. We’re college students, and we spend way too much of our time online. We throw way too much of our information into the digital void and we trust our privacy settings and password protection more than we should. But we probably aren’t talking about a murder we committed last week or a felony we’re planning. We’re talking about dumb, arbitrary crap: homework, sex, work, friends. In a word — life. It’s not information that needs to be private, but it’s information that should be private.

he doctor’s office smells like too much hand sanitizer, and it’s uncomfortable sitting on that white crispy baking sheet.

skills on paper? Fortunately, Members of the Association of American Medical Colleges agree the answer lies in the format and content of the Medical College Admissions Test, the exam that decides the fate of tens of thousands of medical school hopefuls across the country every year. Revisions include adding a section on social, behavioral and psychological determinants of health as well as critical reasoning, similar to the Law School Admissions Test. The writing portion many medical students agonize over will now be excluded. These changes reflect the rapid and evolving field of medicine and the needs of society, according to admissions director Dr. James
Kerwin. “For example, in the past we focused too much on disease and now we focus on the person, their role in the community, family and biological factors,” Kerwin said. The needs of society are not easy to gauge. The practice of western medicine is shifting to a more holistic picture. Experts agree that simply looking at present symptoms and a diagnosis chart can be inaccurate. Each patient has a different socio-economic status and family history and different habits. A good doctor must fully understand these determinants of health and have the ability to draw important information out of the patient. “We are very good at finding out who’s smart and who can take a test, but we don’t know who can play well in a sandbox. How do you find out who is a truly caring, compassionate individual paired with excellent science skills?” said Dr. Andreas Theodorou, chief medical officer and professor of pediatrics at the University of Arizona Medical Center.
Playing well in a sandbox translates to how well the person communicates with team members from other professions such as nursing, public health, pharmacy and psychology. Combining the skill sets of nurses, public health experts, psychologists and pharmacists will paint a better picture of each individual’s health needs and increase the quality of doctor-to-patient care. “It’s the skill of knowing how to communicate with a fellow human being. It’s not a critical characteristic to be admitted into health care, it’s a personal characteristic,” Theodorou said. Advice to pass the new MCAT? Continue to ace all the “weeder” science classes, write an excellent personal statement, take a few more interdisciplinary courses, develop strong communication skills and be a genuinely compassionate human being. — Courtney L’Ecuyer is a journalism sophomore.

POLICE BEAT By Elliot P. Hopper DAILY WILDCAT
Police finger underage drinker
A resident assistant from Arizona-Sonora Residence Hall called the University of Arizona Police Department and told them that a male resident sliced his finger in half by slamming it in a door at 12:57 a.m. on Thursday. Officers and paramedics from the Tucson Fire Department arrived at the dorm and found the man washing blood off his finger in the restroom. The man told officers he was leaving his room and slammed the door behind him without moving his finger out of the way in time. He then told officers that earlier that night, he drank three glasses of wine and had a “puff” of marijuana. He also told them he was previously arrested twice for drinking underage. While the student spoke to the officers, they noticed the smell of alcohol coming from his breath and that he had red, watery eyes. Paramedics took him and the remainder of his finger to the University of Arizona Medical Center while UAPD officers asked the RA to contact someone to clean up his blood in the dorm’s bathroom. The student was issued a Code of Conduct violation and was referred to the Dean of Students Office. As officers started walking out of the dorm, they noticed the smell of marijuana coming from down the hall. They searched one of the rooms and found four male students sitting in a circle around a green, leafy substance. Officers spoke to the man who lived in the room and asked where he got the substance. He told them he got it at an “off-campus location,” and officers said he should review the UA’s drug policy and throw out the substance. The male fled the scene, and there is no information about him at this time.
Vandals make their mark
Janitors were cleaning the men’s restroom in the Steward Observatory when they saw graffiti markings on some of the stalls at 10:41 a.m. on Thursday. One of the janitors called UAPD, and officers responded to the scene and located the graffiti. One of the markings was a large black swastika, and officers called Facilities Management to clean up the graffiti. Facilities Management workers cleaned the site and replaced the drywall. Officers searched for materials and suspects in the surrounding areas, but were unable to find any. There is no further information at this time.

Wildcat Calendar ‘Speaking in Tongues: Wallace Berman and Robert Heinecken, 1961-1976’ This landmark exhibition, curated by Claudia Bohn-Spector and Sam Mellon, brings the work of Berman and Heinecken ‒ two seminal yet under-studied Los Angeles artists ‒ into close conversation for the very ﬁrst time. Each was interested in appropriating and repurposing images from mass media, which helped usher in the use of photography as a key element of contemporary avant-garde art. Their works are explored within the unique cultural context of 1960s and 1970s Southern California, as it fueled and ampliﬁed their highly original creative approaches. The Center for Creative Photography began acquiring the Robert Heinecken Archive in 1981. A detailed guide to the Heinecken Archive can be found on the CCP website. Center for Creative Photography.

A DRAFTABLE DUO? Former linebackers have sights set on NFL Draft By Zack Rosenblatt Daily Wildcat
The way Derek Earls’ and Paul Vassallo’s football careers have played out are parallel in a way. The former Arizona linebackers both came to Tucson as junior college transfers in 2010, and they have played alongside each other ever since. Vassallo came from Sierra College in California and Earls from North Dakota State College. In 2010, Vassallo led the Wildcats with 102 tackles (eight for loss). In 2011, Earls led with 74 tackles (seven for loss). “We meshed really quickly because we came in at the same time,” Vassallo said. “If I messed up he’d be there to back me up, and vice versa. It was nice having that relationship with another linebacker.” Their paths were joined from the very beginning of their careers at the UA, as they planned to live together before they even stepped foot on campus for the first time. “We came in and we already decided that we were living with each other before we met,” Earls said. “We pretty much became brothers. We always watched film with each other. We both pretty much have the same strengths and weaknesses and we’re always trying to make each other better.” The NFL Draft starts on Thursday, and while neither linebacker is expected to be drafted in the first few rounds, the duo is still holding out hope that even if their names are not called on one of the draft’s three days, a team will pick them up as an undrafted free agent.
Vassallo receiving interest from multiple teams
Not many NFL Draft prognosticators have mentioned Vassallo in their pre-draft rankings, but that doesn’t mean NFL teams haven’t taken notice of the 6-foot-3, 247-pound linebacker. “I’ve been hearing late rounds to free agent since the Pro Day, but I’m just keeping my expectations open,” Vassallo said. “I haven’t had any workouts, but my agent has spoken with

Foles impresses Gruden UA product draws Brad Johnson comparisons, praise for pocket presence By Mike Schmitz Daily Wildcat
Colin Darland / Daily Wildcat
Former quarterback Nick Foles will likely become the first Arizona quarterback to be selected in the modern era of the NFL Draft.
Thousands tuned into ESPNU on Monday at 2 p.m. to watch the Nick Foles edition of Jon Gruden’s “QB Camp.” Foles’ teammates and former coaches said they TIVo’d the show in anticipation. Foles, on the other hand, stayed away from the television. “I didn’t even watch it,” Foles said with a laugh on Monday, an hour and a half after it aired. “It’s too awkward watching yourself on TV, so I couldn’t watch it.” Foles said he did receive a handful of texts and tweets from his teammates, most of which centered around Foles’ interpretation of Arizona’s Haka dance that Gruden described as “terrible.” “I think my teammates got a good laugh from that,” Foles said. Although Foles didn’t tune in to watch Gruden’s evaluation of him as a quarterback, he reflected on his experience learning from the NFL
guru along with former Super Bowl champion quarterback Brad Johnson, who made a guest appearance. Foles said the entire process took a total of six hours, with four and a half spent in the film room and an hour and a half at the practice field showing off his arm. In the film room the two talked about how he idolized John Elway growing up, his shoulder surgery in high school and how fellow Westlake High School quarterback alum Drew Brees put in a good word to Dr. James Andrews to perform Foles’ procedure, his experience at Michigan State and dealing with the firing of former Arizona head coach Mike Stoops. Gruden critiqued Foles’ inability to check down to his running backs at times, but showcased his toughness, highlighted by the left-handed pass he threw to Keola Antolin against Oregon last season. Overall, Gruden applauded Foles’ toughness and ability to take big hits along with his knowledge of the game. He called Foles’ biggest strengths his “production,” and said that he’s a “hardworking, experienced, big, prototype quarterback that has a huge upside.” “He is an excellent pocket passer, and
he might be — from head to shoulders, next to (ASU quarterback Brock) Osweiler, the biggest quarterback in this draft,” Gruden said of Foles in a teleconference earlier this month. “Coaches, GMs covet that size. He’s accurate. He’s just been hit a lot. He’s going to have to really get in a system that he can develop in, I think, and learn the protections and try to develop within that offense as quickly as possible.” Gruden compared Foles to Johnson, as both stand around 6-foot-5, 240 pounds and don’t rely on speed or athleticism. Foles thanked Johnson, a former two-time Pro Bowler, for giving him an old binder full of plays and notes from throughout his career. “The notes he had from my workouts, just knowing protections, getting into the right plays, being smart with the football,” Foles said. “Coming from him all of that was invaluable.” While Gruden gave his analysis of Foles throughout the show, Arizona’s all-time leading passer gave his take on the former NFL coaching great. “Just to talk to a guy like that is pretty amazing,” Foles said. “He’s cool. He’s
Landing Lyons would be best-case scenario Mike Schmitz Daily Wildcat
rizona is in dire need of an experienced point guard for next season before Duquesne transfer T.J. McConnell becomes eligible in 2013-14. Combo guard Mark Lyons, who UA head coach Sean Miller recruited to Xavier before joining the Wildcats, needs to prove he can play point guard in his final season to improve his NBA draft stock. You do the math. After Lyons announced on Monday he would transfer from Xavier for his final year of eligibility, everyone and their mother could put the pieces together. Arizona needs Lyons and Lyons needs Arizona. The marriage makes complete sense for both parties. Despite his off-the-court troubles, the loss of Josiah Turner left the Wildcats point guard-less. They’ll be without a true floor general for an entire season until McConnell becomes eligible.
But with Turner transferring and Kyryl Natyazhko leaving for Europe, the Wildcats still have an extra scholarship to hand out. There’s no question that scholarship is Lyons’ for the taking. Miller is clearly a Lyons advocate. He lured the three-star recruit to Xavier in 2008 and coached him during the guard’s redshirt season. While Xavier shone under head coach Chris Mack early in the season last year, Miller often applauded the toughness and leadership of Lyons and Tu Holloway. Miller even went as far as to back up his former players after their brawl with Yancy Gates and the Cincinnati Bearcats. It’s no secret Miller is a Mark Lyons guy, so to speak, and the feeling is mutual. Lyons is familiar with Miller, and he’d have an immediate chance to lead a talented group of
underclassmen and returners. Lyons needs to show he can play point guard to make it to the next level. He played off-guard next to Holloway last season, and because of that, the 6-foot-1, 188-pound guard won’t be found in 2013 mock drafts. Despite joining Xavier’s 1,000-point club last season and averaging 15.1 points per game a season ago, 6-foot-1 shooting guards simply don’t make it in the NBA. Next season at Arizona, however, he’d have the chance to silence the doubters that don’t think he can play the point. The Wildcats need Lyons in the worst way. He’s tough as nails, a natural leader and a veteran presence that would help keep four highlytouted incoming freshman in line off the court, and in the right spots on it. Without Lyons, Arizona will play second fiddle to UCLA in the Pac-12 and most likely have a mediocre showing in the NCAA Tournament. With Lyons, they’re scary. They would have all the pieces to make a deep NCAA Tournament run and possibly a push at the Final Four. Lyons knows Miller’s sets. He knows what he wants done and how he wants it done. There
Turner could be headed for St. John’s
Former Arizona point guard Josiah Turner could land at St. John’s next season, SNY.tv’s Adam Zagoria reported Monday. Turner has ties to a number of players at the school and was named the MVP of the iS8/Nike Spring Championship final in Queens, N.Y. The 6-foot-3 guard announced his intention to transfer last week after a freshman season that was marred by off-the-court issues. Turner was suspended twice — including the entire postseason — and benched once while averaging 6.8 points. 3.1 rebounds and 2.4 assists per game. Turner, a Sacramento, Calif., native, originally picked Arizona over UCLA, Lousiville and Kansas, and will have to sit out next season per NCAA transfer rules. — Alex Williams

Q&A Berkowitz recaps spring season By Iman Hamdan
handle things the right way. They are polite. They were appreciative. It seemed for both of them that this was an opportunity to continue their tennis at a high level as opposed to a right. That is something I look for when recruiting.
With the regular season ending and the Pac-12 Conference Tournament beginning, men’s tennis head coach Tad Berkowitz sat down with the Daily Wildcat and recapped the highs and lows of his seventh year at the UA. How would you describe your coaching style? I’m very competitive, and losing drives me nuts and keeps me up at night. I keep a lot of emotions internally to where I try to keep an even keel with the guys every day. Regardless of a good win or a tough loss, I try to bring the same personality and same energy every day for the guys. What I try to focus on too is adaptability. Our guys come from different parts of the world, and different upbringings, and as a coach it is important to adapt your coaching style to get the most out of your student-athlete.
What was the highlight of the season? We had a tough year, but even though there were losses, we were close to beating Stanford and Cal, who were both ranked top in the country. We played that match with only freshmen and sophomores and that showed me that the guys are improving, and as we look towards the future we are going to be pretty tough to beat. GORDON BATES / DAILY WILDCAT
Arizona head coach Tad Berkowitz talks to a pair of players in between matches at the Robson Tennis Center. The Wildcats went winless in Pac-12 Conference play.
What were the particular quali- Sebastian Ionescu this season? Both Sumeet and Sebastian I ties you were looking for when you recruited Sumeet Shinde and was really impressed with. They
What was the biggest disappointment of the season? I felt injuries because I can probably count on one hand the number of times that we played with a full lineup. From Giacomo (Miccini) being injured to Andre
(Vidaller) being injured, it just seemed like we didn’t play with a full deck the entire season. Which, when playing with such a young team, you have to have all your guys ready to go. Who is the MVP for the season? I would have to say Sumeet (Shinde), just with the ability for him to raise his game and play at the high level in the Pac-12. He won against the California schools, making him 3-1 at that point. Since all the guys are coming back next season what do you look to improve on as a team? We do have the opportunity to recruit some more guys. I think we need to add more depth for our team. Also working on the experience and confidence of the guys. Now they understand the rigors of the spring season, plus they know deep down that, OK let’s not just hang with these top teams. Let’s beat them.
Baseball must stay the course Wildcats inching closer to first conference title in nearly two decades By Dan Kohler DAILY WILDCAT
With all the hype surrounding the Arizona baseball team at the beginning of the season, it would have been easy for the team to get lost in it. The Wildcats were ranked No. 5 in the Baseball America preseason polls and the move to Hi Corbett Field was the talk of Tucson. The pressure to succeed was the highest it has been since head coach Andy Lopez took over the program in 2002. Now, as the 2012 season heads toward its climax, the No. 11 Wildcats are sitting alone at the top of the Pac-12 standings, inching closer and closer to their first conference championship
since 1993. The success is a credit to the hard work and persistence that Lopez and his squad bring on a daily basis. After losing three straight games last week, the Wildcats (26-12, 12-6 Pac-12) focused to get back on the straight and narrow. With a series win in Seattle against the Washington Huskies over the weekend, Arizona is again on track to make a run through its last 12 conference match-ups. Third baseman Seth Mejias-Brean said that the Wildcats know they are at the point where every game counts. “It’s still a long season,” Mejias-Brean said. “We still have a lot of games coming up, we just need to worry about one game at a time.” With the Pac-12 touted as one of the nation’s best conferences, Lopez sees with every conference contest how tough the competition can be. “I don’t think anybody’s in the driver’s seat in this conference,” Lopez said.
“We really have to bear down and play well every time out.” Lopez doesn’t look at the Pac-12 standings because he knows his team is only as good as it looks each day in practice. “I don’t pay attention to standings,” Lopez said. “I just kind of pay attention to how were doing as a team, but we’ve go to continue to play well.” Lopez only preaches one thing to his guys each day: playing good baseball — and if his group can win two of three games every weekend, Lopez will be a happy man. For most of the season, the Wildcats have been able to have that success, winning five out of their six conference series so far. By now, the bullpen has emerged as clearly the weakest part of the Arizona club, but the Arizona weekend pitching rotation makes up for it. Kurt Heyer and Konner Wade lead this past weekend off with back-toback complete games, and on Sunday,

even James Farris managed to hold the Wildcats’ lead on the mound through the seventh. This lethal trio could be one of the most dominant in the nation, and without them, the Wildcats wouldn’t be anywhere near the team they’ve been
this season. And with the team’s success this season, it looks like all the hype was warranted. “I definitely feel confident in winning the conference,” Mejias-Brean said. “We just have to continue playing good baseball.”

UA Eureka from page 1
public community areas, it didn’t specify any restrictions of possession or use of medical marijuana on college campuses. This caused confusion and concern at colleges because such restrictions are necessary for them to receive federal funding. Public universities must comply with three federal acts to keep federal funding: the DrugFree Workplace Act, the Drug-Free Schools and Communities Act and the Controlled Substances Act. After seeing that the 2010 act failed to include a provision specifically prohibiting medical marijuana on college campuses, Arizona state Rep. Amanda Reeve introduced legislation to fix this. “Just because it’s higher ed doesn’t mean that they should be exempt,” Reeve said. “There’s kids of all ages on those grounds, there’s daycare centers … An educational facility is an educational facility and ergo it should not be allowed.” The only difference between pot smokers who toke with a card and those who don’t is the action taken against them if caught smoking on campus. The University of Arizona Police Department now has to determine if the person they are investigating has a permit to smoke marijuana. With a medical marijuana card, a student avoids arrest and does not have to appear in court. Instead, they are referred to the Dean of Students Office. Once the office receives a referral, the dean contacts the student to talk about the officer’s observations and the police report. If found guilty, the student risks academic probation and usually has to attend Campus
Health Service’s Student Health Alcohol Drug Education class or meet with a counselor. Students may also have to complete community service, and their parents could receive a letter about the incident. “If the student is found responsible for violating the student Code of Conduct, we issue sanctions that are designed to be educational and to help the student understand the impact of their behavior and choices on themselves, their community, etcetera,” said Kendal Washington White, senior associate dean in the Dean of Students Office. Students who live in residence halls are not exempt from this policy because they have signed an agreement with residence life that says they understand that marijuana is prohibited on campus. Students caught possessing or using marijuana that don’t have a medical card can either be charged criminally or go through the dean of student’s diversion program, just like someone with a card would. If the student completes the program, the arrest will disappear from their record. It’s up to the officer, though, to decide which of the two charges the student will face. A criminal charge results in a citation and a court date. The student can be arrested on the spot and taken to Pima County Jail, where it typically takes a day to see a judge. UAPD can also issue a “promise to appear” which, like a traffic ticket, requires the criminal to appear in court on a given day instead. “Typically a student can only be enrolled into diversion one time. So if it’s a subsequent violation, then they’re not eligible for diversion and they’ll get arrested,” said Sgt. Juan Alvarez, UAPD’s public information officer.

firey. He’s very intense. He loves the game of football. This dude just loves the game.” Foles is hoping his own love for the game will help him into the early rounds of Thursday’s 2012 NFL Draft. Foles is currently the No. 6 quarterback prospect in the draft according to ESPN, but he doesn’t read into the rankings as the workouts are over, and when he hears his name called is now out of his hands. “Nobody knows. I really don’t worry about it,” he said. “I go where I go and it’s meant to be. It’s all up to the good Lord now.”

wouldn’t be much of a transition period. With Lyons, Arizona’s depth would be scary. Miller would have Lyons, Nick Johnson, Gabe York, Jordin Mayes and even Kevin Parrom at his disposal in the backcourt, and Solomon Hill, Angelo Chol, Grant Jerrett, Brandon Ashley and Kaleb Tarczewski manning the post. That’s a legitimate 10-man rotation, with most of those players being able to play multiple positions as well. Lyons would take this team to the next level. He’s been a starter in big-time tournament games and he has the heart of a, well, lion. He plays defense — averaging 1.3 steals per game last season — and is close with Miller and his system. While Kentucky and Kansas are also in pursuit of the New York point guard, according to Yahoo! Sports, don’t be surprised if Lyons chooses Miller and the opportunity at Arizona. It’s the right fit at the right time and if Lyons does opt for Miller and the Wildcats, UA fans across the country should rejoice. —Mike Schmitz is a marketing senior.

Coyotes clinch series win Mcclatchy tribune
CHICAGO — For the sixth time in their last two postseason series, the Chicago Blackhawks took the ice with their season in the balance. For most of it, they did nearly everything possible to extend it another day. And then it came crashing to a halt. Despite the Blackhawks dominating early in almost every imaginable way, the Coyotes won Game 6 at the United Center by a 4-0 score, winning their first-ever postseason series 4-2. The Blackhawks were sent home after the first round for the second straight year. Mike Smith was brilliant between the pipes with his first career playoff shutout, making 39 saves and stealing the game for his team especially early. He was backed up by goals from Oliver Ekman-Larsson, Gilbert Brule, Antoine Vermette and Kyle Chipchura. The Hawks controlled every aspect of the game except the scoreboard, outshooting the Coyotes 28-8 through two periods. But when Hawks captain Jonathan Toews was tagged with an interference call while trying to stay onside during the second period, the Coyotes made good on the chance. Ekman-Larsson sent a blast from the point through traffic and by the Hawks’ Corey Crawford, and the Coyotes had the unlikely one-goal edge at the 13:14 mark of the second. Smith, meanwhile, was near-miraculous in the net, making saves on

Earls hoping to get a call from his hometown team
Derek Earls grew up in Waconia, Minn., as part of a family of passionate Minnesota Vikings fans. While the 6-foot-3, 247-pound linebacker has tempered his expectations for the draft, he is
taking a feed from Kyle Chipchura and shooting high past Crawford for the 2-0 lead at the 2:24 mark. Then came the crushing blow: A Jimmy Hayes check into the boards
still holding out hope that his childhood favorite will be his next destination. “I know I’ll be a free agent, I’m just hoping a team gives me a chance so I can show them what I can do,” Earls said. “Vikings were the home team. My agent’s actually talked to the Vikings so we’ll see if there’s some interest … It would be nice, I grew up watching them, to be able to play in front of your family and friends and stuff like that, it would be a neat thing to do.” In the meantime, Earls, who graduated in December, has been working out in Tucson with
that precipitated a five-minute major penalty at the 8:47 mark of the third. That left the Hawks shorthanded while attempting to survive, and they couldn’t hold up. Vermette scored near the end of the power play, making it 3-0 and putting the Hawks on the verge of first-round elimination for the second straight season. Chipchura added an unassisted tally shortly thereafter to all but seal the Hawks’ fate. The Hawks were incredibly dominant in nearly every facet during the first period of Game 6 but emerged in a 0-0 tie with the Coyotes, who simply had to be happy to get out alive. The Hawks outshot the Coyotes 16-2, with the visitors requiring nearly seven minutes to record a shot on goal. By then, Brendan Morrison and Dave Bolland had chances on the doorstep, and the returning Andrew Shaw couldn’t finish a gorgeous feed from Patrick Kane on a rush. Moments after that, Coyotes goalie Mike Smith made another brilliant save on a Jimmy Hayes blast off a feed from Marcus Kruger. The teams had one power play apiece in the first, with the Coyotes failing to get a shot off during their two-minute advantage. Shaw returned to the Hawks’ lineup following his three-game suspension after a Game 2 collision with Smith. Brandon Saad made way for fellow rookie Shaw in the lineup, a healthy scratch after playing in the last two games.
Vassallo and hanging out with friends before he leaves in pursuit of his NFL dream. He’s just hoping that a team notices his work ethic, and how he can contribute to a team at the linebacker position. “I’m a good player, I can move quick,” Earls said. “I move laterally pretty good, I need to work on coming downhill better. I’m a hard worker always trying to get better at my game. I always try to be in the film room learning, watching other people play, studying and becoming a better player.”

Q Can you get a DUI if you are under a 0.08 BAC and what are the consequences? Yes, you can. Arizona has some of the strictest laws and A. consequences associated with driving under the influence.
In 1990 Arizona adopted a zero tolerance law that states if a person is impaired to the slightest degree, then they can be arrested and charged with a DUI.
What does “impaired to the slightest degree” mean? Law enforcement officers are experienced in recognizing alcohol impairment that causes erratic or illegal driving behaviors, lack of coordination and balance, slurred speech, jerky eye movements, and more. Officers can determine from their investigation (driving, first contact, a field sobriety test) that an individual is impaired and unsafe to drive a car, and can make an arrest. BAC can be tested in the field or at the police station. What are the consequences of a DUI? Besides expenses that come from getting a DUI there are also emotional costs and lost time. • First Offense: Slightest Degree 0.08 or above - Up to 10 days in jail - Minimum $250 fine and $200 surcharge. Additional assessment charge of $1000 - Loss of license for 90-360 days. • Emotional problems associated with injury to yourself or others
• All individuals convicted of a DUI must have an ignition interlock system installed in their car for a year, costing roughly $1000 in fees and installation. • Missed work or school • Stress related to getting places without a car • Increased auto insurance rates
DUI at 0.15 BAC or above is considered an Extreme DUI and receives higher fines, jail time, and stricter punishments than a regular DUI. Word to the wise: when you go out at night, have a plan on how you are going to get home. Whether you decide to crash on a friend’s couch, have a designated driver, or take a taxi, any of these options are better than the consequences of driving under the influence.
