English Department may move to College of SBS BY STEPHANIE CASANOVA The Daily Wildcat

A proposal to move the Department of English to a new college has raised questions about the financial and academic future of both the department and the College

of Humanities. Department faculty and staff are voting this week on a proposal to relocate to the College of Social and Behavioral Sciences. If a majority of the department approves the proposal, it will move to Faculty Senate in time for its last meeting of

the semester on May 5. The proposal, which was presented to the department’s governing body on April 4, stems from a conversation earlier in the semester exploring the possibility of combining the two colleges. After a weekend workshop-style

retreat in February, talk of merging the two colleges ended, but members of the Department of English were still interested in becoming part of the College of Social and Behavioral Sciences. Citing academic synergies as the main reason the department



wants to move, the proposal highlights some already existing collaborations and possibilities for more collaboration with the College of Social and Behavioral Sciences. The proposal also states that the department would



Hours cut for student workers





The Daily Wildcat

The policy regarding the number of hours students employed by the UA can work is changing in order to comply with standards of the Affordable Care Act. The changes in policy officially go into effect at the beginning of the next academic year, but some student workers have already started to see changes to their work schedules. Students who work at UA offices, labs, businesses and other institutions are coded as “student employees.” The Student Employment Manual specifies that a student employee is a part-time employee who is concurrently enrolled at the UA, with the primary goal of achieving a degree. The current work hours policy allows student employees to work 30 hours a week while classes are in session and 40 hours a week during school vacations. Helena Rodrigues, director of Human Resources Strategy and Planning, said that those numbers will be lowered under the new policies. “[ACA] requires all large employers, like the UA, to provide health insurance benefits to employees who are full-time,” Rodrigues said. “And

Fourteen former ASUA presidents, including current ASUA President Morgan Abraham, gathered at Pasco Kitchen & Lounge on Friday to welcome president-elect Issac Ortega. According to Ben Graff, Associated Students of the University of Arizona President from 2000-2001, having dinner with former ASUA presidents to welcome the president-elect was a tradition in the late ’70s, but grew less common in the early ’90s. However, Graff and two other former presidents felt that something was missing, and worked to bring the tradition back. “A few of us, Cisco Aguilar and Alistair Chapman … and myself said, ‘Well, that was a great tradition,’” Graff said. “We wanted to get the newly elected

president to know about the history, know about all the people involved, so we decided to reinitiate this about five years ago. We’re just here to support him [Ortega] if he needs anything.” Many of the attendees, such as Doug Ehrenkranz,

who was ASUA President from 19781979, reminisced about their terms as president, and compared the current issues to problems they dealt with as president. “We were, I think, much more radical, because it was still


Goofy, sweet, genuine and loving: These are a few words the friends and family of Lezo Urreiztieta used to describe him. Positive words like these were written across the backs of nearly 400 people as they participated in a charity 5K run on Sunday to honor Lezo Urreiztieta’s memory. The Arizona hurdler died on Dec. 20, 2013, following complications from brain surgery. “His death is very prevalent on campus,” said Ben Malisewski, a business senior who helped organize Sunday’s event. Malisewski is a friend of Urreiztieta’s older brother, Gaizka Urreiztieta, and said he wanted to help raise money for the scholarship the Urreiztieta family is creating in Lezo Urreiztieta’s honor. The 365 participants had already signed up online before Sunday’s event, which required a $15 donation to the family’s scholarship fund. Participants received a free T-shirt, bracelet and button with a picture of Lezo Urreiztieta stamped on the front. At the time of registration, participants were asked to submit a few words they would use to

describe Lezo Urreiztieta. The submissions were conglomerated together into a word cloud and then printed on the back of the T-shirts. “If I was going to see him, I knew I was going to laugh that day,” said Kayleigh Orozco, a physiology senior. Orozco works with the Arizona track and field team, of which Lezo Urreiztieta was a prominent member. “They’re a family; they’re a unit,” said Orozco, wiping away a tear, “so they [the track team] are going to help each other through this.” The Lezo Urreiztieta Scholarship Fund will be awarded to a student-athlete who displays a commitment to their studies in the same spirit as Lezo Urreiztieta, who had ambitions of becoming a reconstructive plastic surgeon. Sunday’s event hoped to raise about $3,500 for the scholarship. The crop of runners and walkers were a mix of people who knew Lezo Urreiztieta, as well as many current and former students of Canyon Del Oro High School, where Lezo Urreiztieta graduated from in 2011. All were present to pay tribute to the former UA student.

full-time, according to the law, is 30 hours or more a week.” The change in policy is not an attempt by the UA to avoid insuring student employees, Rodrigues said. Students are not benefits-eligible employees because their primary relationship to the UA is that of a student, she added. HR will be overseeing compliance to the augmented student employee policies, Rodrigues said, because the office has taken responsibility to see that UA complies with ACA. HR looked at a large amount of student data, including the credit hours and time sheets of the nearly 6,000 student employees at the UA, Rodrigues said. She said they found that the majority of student


employees at the UA worked less than 25 hours a week. “From our perspective, we’re not suggesting a big change to what’s currently happening on campus,” Rodrigues said. Many student employees on campus said that a change in the allowable work hours policy would not affect them because they already work less than 25 hours per week. However, some student employees are feeling the cuts. Gibraham Morgan, an interpretation and translation junior, has worked at Canyon Coffee in the Student Union Memorial Center since January. He said that he was working around 30 hours a week until his hours were cut to less than 25 a week at the end of March. He was not told specifically why his hours were reduced but only that it was

due to budget concerns. Morgan said he does not want his hours to be cut and that he feels he could work 30 hours or more. He said he wants to save up money to cover the $1,500 in tuition not covered by scholarships rather than take out loans. Morgan said he is not going to seek employment elsewhere, but that he will have to adjust his spending from now on. Rodrigues said that the UA wants to help students reach the goal of receiving an education. The change in policy may increase the number of student-worker positions in order to meet the needs of campus, which would create more job opportunities. REBECCA MARIE SASNETT/THE DAILY WILDCAT

Normcore claims to be unique, is only trendy BY Mackenzie Brown The Daily Wildcat


f you’re looking to be “in” right now, search no further than normcore, aka style for the unstylish. Or, better yet, an incredibly pretentious nod from the fashionable to the unfashionable. The term normcore was coined by New York-based group K-Hole as part of a trend-forecasting report that doubled as a conceptual art piece called “Youth Mode: A Report on Freedom.” It described normcore as a commentary on what the group perceived to be a broader societal attitude adjustment. K-Hole ascertained that the next big thing is, paradoxically, to not be the next big thing. Normcore glorifies mom jeans, plain fleece jackets, dorky New Balance shoes and monochromatic color schemes. It’s mall clothes — things without brand names or big-name designers behind them. Apparently ’90s fashion, which should have died for good at the turn of the millennium, is now the staple for young adults trying really hard to prove that they don’t need to look cool to be cool. Normcore has always been an unidentified part of our culture, but prior to the glorification of being average, seemingly unaware normcore dressers were usually chastised for being totally fashion-inept and out of the loop. Now it’s all about pretending to be out of the loop that keeps you in it. The ideology behind normcore really isn’t a bad one: Dress like everyone else and let your personality do the talking, rather than being a walking billboard for brands. The New York Times even wrote that it was a joke that became a movement. Yet, I find it hard to believe that normcorers aren’t just trying to make a pretentious statement that by rocking “normal” clothes they’ve somehow managed to become unquestionably more cool and self-aware. If you have to go out and buy a pair of ill-fitting acid wash jeans and a mockneck, you’re not really making a statement about your individuality. You’re just buying in to what’s presently being marketed as cool. What’s worse is trying to hide a fashion statement behind unfashionable clothes. If you want to make a statement, then make it, but don’t try to trick us into thinking you’re expressing your individuality when you’re just being trendy. Despite the cries of individuality, simplicity and personality from those who adhere to normcore, it’s just a fad, one more highly regulated notion of what’s cool and what’s not. The issue with normcore isn’t the style itself, it’s the show you have to put on to pretend to be something you’re not. You shouldn’t have to feel pressured into purchasing what’s trendy in order to make a statement, or even just pretending not to be trendy to make that same statement. There’s no individuality when everyone else is doing it, too. For the real normcorers out there, those who wore nondescript outfits before an annoying tagline was used to define you, I applaud you for your utter lack of style and your resistance to the notion that we have to wear what is marketed to us in order to be cool. You’re the guys who wear fanny packs because they’re useful, not to make an underhanded statement that you’re hip even though you’re pretending not to be. To the guys going out and picking up a new pair of white sneakers similar to the ones my grandfather rocks on a daily basis, please stop. We all know you’re faking it and soon enough, hopefully, such shoes will be retired to the farthest depths of your closet in favor of something a little more stylish. Individuality doesn’t have to be derived from your clothes or a skewed perception about the latest trend, because it’s the attitude behind what you wear that truly makes you stand out.

Feigning disinterest not a substitute for individuality BY Brittany Rudoplh The Daily Wildcat


alking to class on Thursday, I saw a pretty extraordinary sight: A line on the UA Mall that was ridiculously long, spanning the length of the Student Union Memorial Center. I couldn’t think what event would draw seemingly all of campus to congregate in one place. Then another onlooker said, “Those idiots are lined up to see Dave Franco; that’s one of the stupidest things I’ve ever seen.” In case you don’t have class on Thursdays, or avoid anywhere that’s not a classroom at all costs, actors Dave Franco, Christopher Mintz-Plasse and Jerrod Carmichael came to campus to promote their new movie, “Neighbors.” While many tried to meet the actors, others were less than enthused about their visit. My Instagram feed was equal parts photos of people trying desperately to see the stars and those denouncing the entire event as beneath them with snide comments accompanying pictures of the crowd. Why would people consciously spend time and energy talking about, posting about or even thinking about something they hate? Why bother unless it’s something that truly has a negative effect on the world and is really

Party of five

A UA student and a non affiliate were arrested for minor in bodily possession of alcohol on April 19. University of Arizona Police Department officers reported to Coronado Residence Hall at 2:15 a.m. in reference to a disturbance. The student who reported the incident informed the officer that when she returned back to her room for the night she found her suitemate and an unknown man in her bed. When the student asked the two to leave, the man became verbally abusive and “got in her face.” The officers went up to the room where they found two women speaking, a man coming out of the bathroom and a man and woman in the adjoining bathroom. The two men seemed to be intoxicated, and had been drinking at Gentle Ben’s Brewing Co. that night. The officers found out that the two men were over the age of 21. One of the girls said she had invited the men back to the residence hall. She had red, watery eyes, smelled strongly of alcohol and had slurred speech. Another girl found in the room also had red, watery eyes, slurred speech and smelled strongly of alcohol. Both girls were asked if they had been drinking and both said they had. Officers found a bottle of vodka in the room. The officers confiscated the alcohol and arrested both girls.

Pink pipe

Two UA students were diverted to the Dean of Students Office for possession of drug paraphernalia and marijuana at 10:20 p.m. on April 19. A UAPD officer was dispatched to Likins Residence Hall due to the smell of marijuana coming from the third floor. The officer approached the room where the smell was coming from and a man exited the room. The man was told to stop and the officer asked him if that was his room. The man replied that he did not live there. Another man exited the room and the officer asked him if he was a resident of that room, and the man stated that he was. The man then let the officer in his room. The officer could smell fresh marijuana and the two men admitted that there was marijuana in the room. The officer asked for the marijuana so one of the men went into the bathroom and took out a bag of marijuana and a pink pipe from below the sink. When asked about the items one of the men said he had bought the marijuana for $50 that day. Both were diverted for possession of marijuana and drug paraphernalia, and 9.6 grams of marijuana were placed into evidence.

Arizona punishes ball, Utes in sweep



BY ROBERTO PAYNE The Daily Wildcat

Offense was the name of the game as the Arizona softball team swept a three-game series against Utah this weekend behind a multitude of home runs and improved their home record to 27-0. After a Game One blowout, Utah (23-24, 5-15 Pac-12) kept the next two games close by nearly matching Arizona’s offense. The Utes came into the series with the third-worst record in the Pac-12 Conference but played much better than might be expected. Utah scored 11 runs over three games and likely would have stolen a game or two had Arizona not hit 13 home runs over the series. The Wildcats increased their NCAA lead in team home runs to 92. “We were talking about it this morning, actually talking about how many we hit,” junior catcher Chelsea Goodacre said. “It’s crazy because we hit so many home runs and still continue to go up with the same plan.” Of the three games, Saturday’s game produced the most fireworks and even a couple program records. Four Arizona batters hit a home run in the game, including three home runs coming off the bat of freshman Katiyana Mauga. Mauga’s three home runs tied the Arizona single game record for most home runs in a game by an individual player. In addition, the team’s eight home runs broke the Arizona record for most team home runs in a single game. The previous record was seven home runs and was set by the 2004 Arizona squad. “I’m just here to play softball and do whatever I can,” Mauga said. “If that means tying records, then that means tying records.” Arizona (39-9, 12-6 Pac-12) played its most recent game Sunday and saw the offense come alive once again. However, Arizona head coach Mike Candrea was clearly concerned about the pitching staff. Candrea pulled starting pitcher Nancy Bowling after only 0.2 innings after she walked four batters, allowed three runs and only retired two batters. Candrea said he’s frustrated that

experience will get them more used to the different environments we played in this season,” Walker said. “The games are not club, but the competitive play will keep the players in shape and eating well.” Arizona only managed to win three of its last 12 matches, but given it is the team’s first season, Walker said he was pleased with the progress his players made and the character they showed. “We endured lots of trials and

tribulations when scratching and crawling to get a win,” Walker said. “Effort was typically there, and even when the circumstances were not in our favor, we always kept competing with our skills getting a lot better each week.”

he doesn’t know what to expect from his rotation on a daily basis. “We need to have some consistency on the mound that we just don’t have right now,” Candrea said. “We’ve got some things to clean up a bit.” The only game in which Candrea didn’t have to pull a starter early came Friday, when seniors Estela Piñon and Kenzie Fowler combined to allow only one hit in the 7-1 Arizona victory. Friday was also the only game in which the Wildcats hit fewer than three home runs. Candrea said he needs more consistency from his pitching staff for his squad to close the season strong. “The biggest thing right now is trying to find some help on the mound and getting someone that can walk in there … and give me three good innings,” Candrea said. “The next couple weeks are going to really tell the test; you can’t afford to start off a game, give someone three runs and expect to come back all the time.”

count and execute. I don’t know what it was — maybe the new pants-down look or something like that.” Arizona’s pitching kept the Sun Devils in line, as ASU only got two hits on the night. In the third inning, ASU took advantage of a one-out walk from Arizona’s sophomore right-handed pitcher Tyger Talley. Johnny Sewald singled to put runners on the corners, then shortstop Drew Stankiewicz lined out to left, allowing Sewald to tag up and score on the sacrifice fly and put ASU on the board. Even though Talley experienced issues with his command and only lasted 4.1 innings, he stumped ASU’s lineup. Sewald was the only one able to pick up on Talley’s pitching and represented the lone Sun Devil to record hits. Talley (21) allowed one run while scattering two hits and striking out three. Sophomore pitcher Cody Moffett relieved Talley and pitched three innings of no-hit baseball before freshman utility player Bobby Dalbec closed the game. “My control was all right [Sunday],” Talley said. “I still got outs, and Moffett and Dalbec picked me up. That’s what they should do coming out of the pen. We did what we needed to do as a staff.” Arizona’s offense struck again in bottom of the fourth after ASU cut the Wildcats’ lead in half. Arizona responded by stringing together three hits and pushed across another two runs to provide insurance and extend its lead. After freshman third baseman Willie Calhoun and junior catcher Riley Moore began the frame with back-to-back singles, junior right fielder Joseph Maggi laid down a sacrifice bunt to advance the runners into scoring position. Gibbons then launched a fly ball to center field, which allowed Calhoun to tag up and score and Moore to pull into third base. Sophomore shortstop Kevin Newman delivered a single to left to score Moore. The Wildcats tacked on additional runs in the bottom of the fifth and in the eighth. Arizona’s timely hitting, which represented a welcome change of pace, gave the Wildcats’ rotation the run support it needed to come away with the win. Arizona travels to No. 7 Oregon this week.

Familiar faces support Wildcats BY SAVANNAH DOUGLAS The Daily Wildcat

Whether Arizona sand volleyball players are competing at Jimenez Field on their home turf or in the Hawaii Tournament in Honolulu, family members are there to support them. Arizona’s newest varsity sport allows fans to sit alongside the action in lawn chairs and on blankets. “It is wonderful for this sport, when crowds aren’t as big as a basketball game or a football game, that they know they are at least going to have groups of supporters coming with family and friends,” said Ken Hosto, father of Austin Hosto, the sand volleyball team’s student manager. Ken Hosto and his wife Raynie Hosto attended the sand volleyball matches in part to watch junior Rachel Rhoades, who is their son’s girlfriend. Family members also cheered on players whose families were unable to attend each tournament. Steve Arizobal, father of junior Taylor Arizobal, said that offering support to every Wildcat is important. “We bounce between the games,” Steve Arizobal said. “If we are done

with our [daughter’s] game, we have to go to the other courts to support the girls because some of their parents are not here.” Junior Madi Kingdon’s mother, Martha Kingdon, has yet to miss a tournament this semester. “I don’t just support my daughter,” Martha Kingdon said. “I support all the girls. … They are like my kids when I am on the road.” Madi Kingdon said she sees her mother as being fully invested in the team. “She is kind of like the team mom

in a way,” Madi Kingdon said. This support comes at a cost. Martha Kingdon and Steve Arizobal estimate that they spend around $5,000 to $7,000 a year on travel to the tournaments. These expenses include flights and gas money, taking the team to dinner occasionally and hotel rooms. “Any [student] playing Division I, you want to be there,” said Steve Seiber, the father of freshman sand volleyball player Sarah Seiber. The motivation to support their children brought many

parents to Honolulu for the Hawaii Tournament. Traveling with the team to the islands brought their total annual travel expenditures to about $10,000, Martha Kingdon estimated. “It is nice having [my parents] there to support me in my first year of college volleyball,” Sarah Seiber said. Sarah Seiber said she was impressed with the fan support the Wildcats had in Arizona’s first season fielding a sand volleyball team. “We have had a really good turnout of fans for our first year,” Sarah Seiber said. “I was surprised by how many people know about it.” As Arizona’s newest athletic program continues to grow, the players’ families are expected to continue to lead the fan base. Cathy Seiber, Sarah Seiber’s mother, said she will continue to attend every tournament because the sand volleyball players are pioneers of the sport. “We are supporting something brand new that we think is going to be huge,” Cathy Seiber said.

Weaver shared the lead with UCLA’s Erynne Lee going into the final round Sunday and had a onestroke lead through most of the final round, but was unable to hold onto it. The second-place finish for Weaver made her the Wildcats’ top finisher for the fifth time this year. She has also finished in second place in the last two tournaments. Weaver’s second-place finish at the conference championships is the Wildcats’ top individual finish since UA alumna Lorena Ochoa earned a second place finish back in 2002. The Pac-12 Championships were hosted by Oregon State and held at the Trysting Tree Golf Club. The field included 11 of the 12 schools that belong to the Pac-12 Conference. Utah was the only Pac-

I am female and I can’t climax... what’s wrong with me?!

A. There is nothing wrong with you! It is not uncommon for women to have difficulties climaxing, especially during vaginal-penile intercourse. You are not alone. In fact, about 75% of women do not reach orgasm solely from vaginal intercourse and 10-15% of women have never reached orgasm. Other statistics say that as many as 1 in 3 women have trouble reaching orgasm. Many experts say that difficulty achieving orgasm is mostly psychological. Worrying about not being able to have an orgasm may be one of the reasons you are having trouble in the first place. Women are much more likely to achieve orgasm through clitoral stimulation than through vaginal intercourse. The clitoris has over 8,000 nerve endings; far more than those found on the inner walls of the vagina and double the amount found in the

penis. So whether you are trying to climax alone or with a partner your best bet is to focus on the clitoris. Masturbation is a great way to explore what works for you. Exploring your own body first can also be very helpful when trying to achieve orgasm with a partner. If you’re using your hands, try different rhythms and different amounts of pressure. Also make sure that you are somewhere you are comfortable and relaxed. Sex toys may also help – vibrators and dildos can be great for masturbation or for sex play with a partner. Communication is key when trying to achieve orgasm with a partner. Talking about what you like and don’t like can help you become more aroused and more likely to achieve orgasm. It is good to say things like “I like it when you do this” and “I like it when you touch here” or “what feels good to you?” etc. Don’t be afraid to say what you like and what you don’t.

Political TV: Entertainment for all BY Taylor Armosino The Daily Wildcat


olitical television is popular, regardless of genre. From news programs produced by Fox News and MSNBC to fictional dramas like “The West Wing” and satires like “Parks and Recreation,” viewers have a plethora of choices for political entertainment. The real world of politics is densely layered and provides writers and showrunners with plenty of diverse material to work with. Currently, “Scandal” and “Veep” serve as two very different angles from which to view political life, and both have found success in the crowded TV landscape. With 10.57 million viewers tuned in and on the edge of their seats, ABC’s “Scandal” wrapped up its third season on April 17. The show stars the great Kerry Washington as Olivia Pope, a D.C. insider who runs a crisis management firm. She spends her days and nights putting out the fires set by sleazy senators and unfaithful congressmen, but struggles to quell the problems in her own personal life. Her character is inspired by Judy Smith, a co-executive producer on the show. Smith was formerly a special assistant for the administration of former U.S. President George W. Bush, before starting her own crisis management firm called Smith & Company. But Pope is at best a loose interpretation, as “Scandal” does not concern itself with realism. It has been often compared to Netflix’s political drama “House of Cards.” The two shows are similar in that they both feature high-consequence political scandals and strong protagonists, but “Scandal” has one distinct advantage — it accepts what it is.

“House of Cards” runs into problems when it tackles the weird or ridiculous. It’s hardly realistic, but has a false sense of realism about itself that holds it back. To the contrary, “Scandal” is the epitome of batshit storytelling. It doesn’t just feed off shock-value, it thrives on it. The ridiculousness is what makes it appealing and what makes it stand out. In the highly deceptive world of politics, it’s refreshing to see a show that’s so honest with itself. The same could be said of HBO’s hit comedy “Veep,” which returned for its third season on April 6. It stars Julia Louis-Dreyfus as fictitious Vice President Selina Meyer. The show is smart in how it pokes fun at the political system. Unlike many shows and movies that depict politics as a cutthroat game of winners and losers, “Veep” conveys that most people working in politics are incompetent. It’s “Parks and Recreation,” but on the federal level. After stumbling through an up-anddown first season, “Veep” really hit its stride in season two. Its big problem was that it was unable to nail down Meyer in a way that captured her incompetence, but also made her sympathetic. She was too dumb and unlikable. The show fell closer to “Hello Ladies,” an HBO comedy canceled mainly because the main character was too unlikable, than it did to “Curb Your Enthusiasm,” which starred the great Larry David as a man both reprehensible and hilarious. This was also noted by Slate’s David Weigel when he reviewed the second season of “Veep.” “Last year, in every episode of ‘Veep,’ Vice President Selina Meyer (Julia Louis-Dreyfus) delivered the saddest catchphrase on TV. She’d return to her office or seek solace after a photo op was waylaid by gaffes, and she’d ask a secretary: ‘Did the president call?’ He


never called. That was the joke,” Weigel said. “It was the final injury piled upon insults, like watching Tom get bested by Jerry for 30 minutes, then learning he has gout.” But that problem no longer exists. The second season of “Veep” was excellent and the first few episodes of the third have been as well. It’s a satire, but it needed to take itself a bit more seriously. It does that now, with Meyer chasing a presidential nomination. The show has a direction; it’s no longer just berating its main character. Politics are kind of like sports; people pick a team and root hard for it. For the most part, you’re a Democrat, a Republican or neither. “Scandal” and


“Veep” are hardly the only good political shows currently going, as “The Good Wife” and “Homeland,” among others, are also thriving. But they exemplify how the spectrum of political television allows for different kinds of shows with wideranging appeal. Almost everyone can find political shows entertaining, even if some of them lean one way or the other ideologically. Most political content is polarizing. Political TV is all-inclusive.

Best memories from the Pima County Fair BY savannah douglas The Daily Wildcat

As the sun sets, crowds of people flow through the gates of the Pima County Fair. The culinary options, a steaming fresh turkey leg or barbeque pulled pork sandwich, fill the air with their aroma. To the right, a ferris wheel provides the opportunity to see the entire 640-acre complex. To the left is the Mega Drop, where guests can make the decision to free fall for the ultimate adrenaline rush. Sunday commenced the 103rd annual, 11-day Pima County Fair.



People attending the Pima County Fair on Saturday night enjoy the Mega Drop attraction. The fair has an average attendance of 250,000 people each year.

The list of food choices at the fair was immense. Among the popular food items most at the fair were turkey legs and frozen margaritas from the Lime-A-Rita Sunset Cantina. Sonoran hot dogs, piled high with refried beans, onions and peppers that could make you cry

were sold by mobile food vendor Lisa’s Concession. Necessary to accompany the over-sized hot dog was an ice-cold lemonade, sold by the majority of the vendors. Powdered sugar covered the faces of many small children after they ate funnel cakes from Mad Hatter Funnel Cakes or deep-fried Twinkies from the Fun Zone Food Services.


The average attendance over the two-week time span the fair was set up in Tucson was 250,000 people. Beanca Samorano, a Pima County Fairgrounds guest services employee, said boredom may be the driving force bringing crowds of people to the fair. “It is Tucson. There is not very much to do here, so [the fair] is one thing that we’ve got,” Samorano said. Samorano has gone to the fair every year it has been in town.


The Pima County Fair hosted nine concerts, beginning with country artist Tyler Farr and ending with Voz De Mando. Other genres represented included rap, hip-hop and thrash metal through performances by Juicy J, Kottonmouth Kings and Megadeth, respectively. The concerts brought in even more fairgoers at night. “When YG and Kid Ink came Thursday, it was a madhouse,” Samorano said. On Saturday night, Lee Brice opened at 8 p.m. with his hit song “That’s When You Know It’s Over.” People stood on chairs and atop tables and chanted the chorus to each of Brice’s songs. At the end of the night the 130th Pima County Fair, and the last chance to grab your favorite fair food, came to an end — until next year. — Follow Savannah Douglas @SavannahHiccups
