Man arrested for planting cams By Jazmine Woodberry ARIZONA DAILY WILDCAT University of Arizona Police Department officers arrested a former UA student on Friday for voyeurism and surreptitious videography in connection with a spy cam found at the Ina E. Gittings building. The building houses the School of Dance as well as the UA’s physiology department. Officers received a call about an

object that had been placed in one of the restrooms there on Feb. 14, but when officers arrived the object had been removed, according to Sgt. Juan Alvarez, UAPD’s public information officer. Staff was alerted to watch out for suspicious activity after the incident. On April 21, staff members at the Stevie Eller Dance Theater found another device similar to the one seen in February. But this time, staff and officers were able to

recover the device. The next morning they called police and on the device “were women in various states of changing and undressing” in recordings from several places inside the building, according to Alvarez. Enough evidence from the two calls was collected to bring two, classfour felony charges against Bradley Wong, 24. Wong was said to have been a former participant in the dance program and still had remained a

fixture in the dance school. “We don’t think that it is a widespread occurrence,” Alvarez said, adding that usually when calls like this come in, it is filming with a camera or cell phone, not a device. “It’s fairly difficult to combat a crime when you don’t know it’s occurring,” he said. “We just like to remind the community, staff, faculty, visitors to be aware of their surroundings so if they see a suspicious object to give us a call

to investigate it.” The dean of the College of Fine Arts and director of the School of Dance, Jory Hancock, was unable to be reached by phone or email by press time. Students in the college said that they were told that nothing should be said about the incident at this time. Alvarez said that more charges could be filed against Wong, but as it is an ongoing investigation, more details could not be released at this time.

Researchers look to skies for energy By Jazmine Woodberry ARIZONA DAILY WILDCAT

Alternative energy research has an under-utilized component — wind energy, according to UA and Tucson officials. Arizona’s first wind farm, the Dry Lake Wind Project, southwest of Winslow, Ariz., has been able to create 30 412-foot wind turbines that can create 63 megawatts — or 15,000 homes’ worth — of energy since late 2009. Now, UA researcher Israel Wygnanski has created a turbine with the potential to create double the wind power of any other. But Mike Leuthold, an aerospace and mechanical engineering researcher, said there’s only so much wind that Arizona can harness. “The best thing in Arizona is solar,” Leuthold said. “There’s much more sun here than there is wind. The problem is in the summertime, when we need the most energy for air conditioning, the wind doesn’t blow very much.” Less than one percent of Arizona is capable of creating a distinct amount of wind energy, with 10,904.1 megawatts of potential installed capacity generating 30,616 gigawatts of power for

the state, according to an analysis of National Renewable Energy Laboratory statistics. Joe Salkowski, media spokesperson for Tucson Electric Power and UniSource Energy, agreed that wind is a supplement to solar, rather than its own powerful source. “There are many parts of the country where wind energy is the most popular form of renewable energy because it costs significantly less than solar energy, but in Southern Arizona, we don’t have a great deal of utilitygrade wind energy,” Salkowski said. “There are some areas of the state where it blows steady and hard enough to built utility-scale wind farms but those are outside of Tucson.” The Kingman area and parts of Mohave County are both more apt for wind energy collection. A 10-megawatt wind farm built by Western Wind and operated by UniSource Energy Systems, a sister company to TEP, will also provide more wind to Arizona. Right now, wind energy has little impact on the installed or reserved renewable energy capacity TEP provides customers. TEP’s renewable energy sources include two systems with

Student leaders speak on UA state By Luke Money ARIZONA DAILY WILDCAT

A guitar twangs under the dim lights of the South Ballroom in the Student Union Memorial Center as about 100 people gathered to attend the second annual ASUA State of the Student address. The event, which featured representatives from the Associated Students of the University of Arizona, Graduate and Professional Student Council and Arizona Students’ Association, gave the presidents of all those organizations the chance to address the challenges facing the student body and what they have done to address them. Elma Delic, the board chair of Arizona Students’ Association, said that it had been a “tumultuous year” for higher education in Arizona, but praised the actions taken by student leaders across to protest proposed increases in tuition and fees. “We have all faced a number of challenges, none of which have been easy,” Delic said. “We fought hard against cuts, and we lobbied our leaders day and night, and as a result we won some victories.” One of these victories was lowering the proposed cut to higher education from $235 million to $198 million, Delic said. Though she acknowledged that a cut this steep would still have far-reaching effects on the universities, she said getting any relief at all was a testament to ASA’s efforts. Emily Connally, the president of GPSC, said that she sees how some might say the state of the UA’s 8,500 graduate students is grim, particularly as the university’s funding continues to fall to levels not seen in decades. But she said it was reassuring to see some of the actions taken by the university this past year. Some actions Connally praised were the UA eliminating the Student Recreation Center summer usage fee for continuing students, a fact

Getting defensive

Women learn self-defense techniques in on-campus class By Samantha Munsey ARIZONA DAILY WILDCAT Women learned how to stop violence in its tracks at Highland Commons on Thursday. Campus Health Service held the last Rape Aggression Defense Systems (RAD) class for the semester in the DeArmond meeting room. The defense class was sponsored by the Campus Health’s Oasis Program , which deals with the prevention of sexual assault, relationship violence and stalking for students. Oasis also offers free confidential counseling for all faculty, staff and students affected by sexual assault and relationship violence.

At the workshop, participants learned basic defense moves that were developed to teach women the skills they need to escape an attacker. RAD-certified instructors, who cover key points of physical defense, teach the women-only course. “The idea is that we can defend ourselves enough to stop an assailant from moving us from one location to another,” said Erin Strange , a violence prevention specialist for Oasis. “We can’t go above and beyond the force that is projected onto us.” Some of the risk reduction strategies taught during the course involved identifying the three elements of an abduction

Death toll from tornadoes now at 270, expected to rise

McClatchy Tribune

TUSCALOOSA, Ala. — Officials on Thursday stepped up emergency relief efforts after the fiercest band of tornadoes in decades tore a gaping wound through Alabama and at least five other Southern states, causing hundreds of deaths and a wide band of destruction. “This may be the worst natural disaster in Alabama’s history,” Gov. Robert Bentley told reporters during a day when his state’s death toll began in the dozens and quickly rose to at least 180. With the loss of life reported in Mississippi, Tennessee, Georgia, Virginia and Kentucky, the toll stood at about 270 by mid-afternoon. “We do expect that number to rise,” Bentley said at a morning news conference where he and other officials were careful not to predict the final death toll. “We’re sure it will.” Craig Fugate, administrator of the Federal Emergency Management Agency, pledged aid to the region where each state was handling its own search and rescue efforts. Fugate traveled to Alabama in the afternoon and his boss, President Barack Obama, will visit the state Friday to meet with officials and victims, the White House said. Speaking at the White House before he announced the details of his new national security team, Obama acknowledged the storms, which he called “heartbreaking, especially in Alabama.” “In a matter of hours these deadly tornadoes, some the worst that we’ve seen in decades, took mothers and fathers, sons and daughters, friends and neighbors even entire communities,” Obama said. “We can’t control when or where a terrible storm will strike, but we can control how we respond to it,” the president said. “I want every American who has been affected by this disaster to know that the federal government will do everything we can to help you recover, and we will stand with you as you rebuild.” Obama said he has talked with various governors to tell them the government “was ready to help in any possible way.” Obama declared a state of emergency in Alabama, clearing the way for federal aid. Meanwhile, 1,500 National Guard troops rushed to the scenes of destruction. Firefighters, police and paramedics probed piles of debris as dogs sniffed for the scent of survivors. The number of injured was in the hundreds and no one had an accurate count of

the missing in a swath of damage that was more than 60 miles long and up to half a mile wide. It was too soon to begin computing the dollars and cents of the damage, but the disaster will likely take weeks and months to repair, officials estimated. Meanwhile, water, clothes, electricity and shelter were the immediate concerns. Bentley said that between half a million and 1 million people in Alabama were without electricity and that there were numerous injuries, especially in Tuscaloosa, which seems to be among the hardest-hit areas in the state. A nuclear power plant was shut down in Alabama but officials said there was no danger of radiation leakage. Bentley said that he had relatives in Tuscaloosa who had survived the storm’s onslaught. “The family came through OK,” he told reporters, “but I’m concerned with everyone’s family.” The extent of the current toll was difficult to confirm, and officials were careful to avoid citing a specific number while rescue efforts were under way in individual states. But so far, Mississippi officials reported 33 dead, Tennessee raised its report to 33, Georgia reported 13, Virginia said it had eight deaths and Kentucky reported at least one death. The latest storm began Wednesday afternoon. The National Weather Service’s

Storm Prediction Center in Norman, Okla., said it received 137 reports of tornadoes. Bentley said Alabama residents were prepared for the storms, but the violent weather moved into the region too quickly and forcefully to make evacuation effective. “It was just the force of the storm,” the governor told reporters. “It’s hard to move that many people.” Officials estimate the intensity of the storm at F4 or F5, meaning winds in excess of 150 mph and as deadly as 200 mph. Whole neighborhoods were flattened. Police and other emergency services in Tuscaloosa, a city of more than 83,000 and home to the University of Alabama, were devastated, Mayor Walter Maddox said. At least 36 people were reported dead and more than 600 injured. “I don’t know how anyone survived,” Maddox told reporters. “We’re used to tornadoes here in Tuscaloosa. It’s part of growing up. But when you look at this path of destruction that’s likely 5 to 7 miles long in an area a half-mile wide to a mile wide, I don’t know how anyone survived. It’s an amazing scene. There are parts of this city I don’t recognize, and that’s someone that’s lived here his entire life.” At a news conference at Tuscaloosa City Hall, Maddox, who had just toured his city by air, said some neighborhoods had been “removed from the map.”

The devastation crossed the city’s economic lines, from middle-class housing for University of Alabama students and employees to one of the city’s oldest public-housing complexes. Officials were in an urgent phase of search and rescue, digging for bodies and trying to account for everyone. But the task was made more difficult because a key city building that housed the emergency management agency had been destroyed. So had most of the city’s trash-pickup fleet. Two major water tanks were empty, Maddox said, and the city was facing potential shortages. He urged conservation. “This is going to be a very long process,” he said. “The amount of damage that is seen is beyond a nightmare. … This will not be an easy journey. We ask for patience and we ask for prayers.” One of the worst neighborhoods was Cedar Crest, a collection of modest single-family houses near the university, home to many campus workers, professors and students and surrounded by strip malls, stores and fast-food restaurants. On Thursday morning, much of it was closed to cars, but throngs of people walked the streets — rescue personnel, gawkers, college students in running shoes and fraternity and sorority T-shirts. The devastation was unavoidable and widespread. Trees were uprooted and broken on the ground, a gasoline station twisted into an accidental version of a Gehry building made of sheet metal, the drug store gutted and a mattress store turned into a hulking, filthy ruin. Block after block of homes were turned into skeletons with nothing but walls as silent sentries. On one street, a group of young people marveled at a large boxy appliance — it wasn’t quite clear what kind — suspended about 20 feet up in a tree. A Winnie the Pooh crib bumper hung from another tree, like a sad banner from an awful party. Cars had been thrown around, their windows bashed in, their metal battered and caked with mud. A newish Chevy Avalanche pickup was clogged with chewed chunks of fiberboard, its “door ajar” signal bonging nonstop. “Dad, we’re at ground zero here, and it’s awful,” a young man said, speaking into his cellphone. “It’s really sad.” Kirk Miller, 36, and his wife, Rachelle, 44, were standing outside of the custom four-bedroom home they built four years ago. One side of it had been caved in from the top, with much of the roof falling on their ski boat and Kirk’s motorcycle.

TARP has $60 billion left to spend, more to repay McClatchy Tribune WASHINGTON — There is still $60 billion in taxpayerfunded, bank bailout funds available to be spent on housing and other programs, a top watchdog for the government’s Troubled Asset Relief Program said Thursday. “TARP’s financial outlook is improving, with more institutions repaying TARP and cost estimates continuing to decline,” the Office of the Special Inspector General for the Troubled Asset Relief Program said in its quarterly report to Congress. “Nevertheless, it bears repeating that Treasury’s ultimate return on its TARP investments depends on many variables that are largely unknowable at this time.” It pointed out that as of March 31, about $146.8 billion in TARP funds were still outstanding. The report noted that costs will vary depending on the Treasury’s ability to sell certain securities in troubled insurer American International Group Inc. and the ability of many banks to repay. It adds that more than 550 mostly small banks have yet to repay their TARP funds. It added that uncertainties about the cost of TARP will also depend on the fund’s housing programs, such as a $7.5 billion program for 18 of the hardest-hit U.S. states to create programs for housing rehabilitation, help for unemployed homeowners and troubled borrowers who owe more than their home is worth. Another housing program, the Home Affordable Modification Program, has allocated $30 billion to modify mortgages for troubled homeowners. So far roughly $1 billion has been spent and roughly 630,000 loans modified, against a target of 3 to 4 million. The report added that TARP has pledged $22.4 billion for its Public-Private Investment Program, which employs private equity and matching government funds to buy distressed mortgage securities. The program, which is scheduled to last at least seven more years, has drawn down $16 billion in debt and equity financing from Treasury funding out of the total obligation as of March 31, of which $840.5 million has been repaid.

STATE continued from page 1 which was met with a round of applause. Connally also recognized Provost Meredith Hay’s efforts to secure $3 million in funding to lessen the workload of graduate workers on campus. “This will make it so they can focus on their own education, which is, after all, why most of us are here,” Connally said. Connally commended the UA administration for its efforts to pass new regulations regarding administrative leave for students who have recently had children. The UA will now offer six weeks of leave wih graduate assistanceship to both new parents, who can focus on their family without fear of losing their jobs because of an extended absence, Connally said. She said that, to her knowledge, this is the only program of its kind among universities comparable to the UA. She also applauded Carla Stoffle, the dean of UA libraries, for her efforts to help develop and implement more integrated and empirically supported online course offerings, both for graduates and undergraduates. Connally discussed new

policies from Campus Health Service, which is eliminating co-pays on certain preventative and diagnostic tests, such as screening for sexually transmitted diseases or cervical cancer. According to Connally, co-pays are also being phased

out for standardized immunizations and counseling for tobacco and alcohol addictions, so long as students have valid insurance. Last to speak was ASUA President Emily Fritze, who supplemented her remarks

with a video depicting several different students and their varying experiences at the UA. Fritze spoke on how to keep a UA education relevant and impactful, especially in an environment where “you can Google your way through college.” Fritze said it was important for both Arizona and the United States to make higher education spending a priority. “We may parade about our superpower status, but if we continue to rank 15th to 20th in science, math and reading, we will lose that status,” Fritze said. She called the current cohort of students “a generation of underdogs,” who would have to fight against the stigma of being the first generation in national history to not be more successful than its predecessors. She said to change this trend, all parties involved, from students to legislators, need to realize their responsibilities. For students, that responsibility is to continue to take advantage of education provided to them and for legislators its “not putting education on the back burner.” “We are our only fighting chance,” Fritze said of students. “Bear down, Arizona.”

DEFENSE continued from page 1 including the opportunity to attack, the assailant and the victim. RAD is not a martial arts program and only instructed to be used in physical defense situations to get way from an aggressor. “You’re not a fighter in a ring,” said Melanie Fleck , an outreach specialist for Campus Health. “Safety is one of the most important things we talk about here.” Women who attended the workshop also had the opportunity to discuss other ways to take precaution from violence including securing their homes from intruders and dating advice when meeting someone for the first time. “You can Google people,” Fleck said. “This might be a strange resource, but if the information is out there you might be able to get a better idea of who they are.” April is Sexual Awareness Month and as a result, the Oasis Program has been involved in coordinating a few events on campus over the last few weeks. This included teaming up with the ASUA Women’s Resource Center for Take Back the Night , and event used to raise awareness about sexual violence. Oasis also hosts RAD defense training for residence halls and clubs throughout the school year. The service is free of charge to the UA community. “It’s a great way to learn techniques on how to better protect yourself,” said Sally Wilder, nursing sophomore and self-defense student. “I see this as being good knowledge to have, but I hope I never have to use it.”

EDITORIAL Undocumented students deserve higher education

E

ducation is a basic human right. Everyone deserves the opportunity to receive a high school diploma, and go on to pursue higher education. The question is how much it should cost, especially depending on what side of the border you’re from. Earlier this month, the Maryland Legislature passed a bill that would allow undocumented students to pay in-state tuition. Maryland Gov. Martin O’Malley has already agreed to sign it. Shortly afterward, a Colorado House committee rejected a similar measure. It was the fifth time the measure had failed in the Colorado Legislature amid questions of what sort of benefits should be given to undocumented immigrants. The Colorado bill would have allowed undocumented students to attend Colorado schools and pay in-state tuition, rather than three times that for out-of-state tuition. Democrats argued in support of the bill, claiming that it would bolster the state’s economy by allowing more students to enroll in college, and that being forced to pay out-of-state tuition blocks the path to higher education for students who have already been in the state’s public education system. Predictably, Republicans argued that such a measure would encourage more illegal immigration. Maryland’s bill passed with a compromise in the state Senate. To qualify, undocumented students would have to attend three years of Maryland high school. Male students have to sign up for selective service, and students or their parents must prove that income taxes were withheld for three years prior to starting college. Similarly, Colorado’s bill would have required undocumented students to attend, and graduate, from a Colorado high school for at least three years. They would also still pay more than other instate students because they would not be eligible for a stipend granted to legal instate residents. There are 11 other states that have passed a measure allowing undocumented students to pay in-state tuition, including California, Illinois and Texas. These measures have been challenged in court, but none have been overturned so far. To be perfectly frank, if Texas can do it, any state can. “Are we teaching a new generation that it’s OK not to follow the laws of our country?” said Republican Colorado Rep. Robert Ramírez in an article by the Associated Press. “That scares me.” Spoken like an Arizonan. Other states have rejected similar proposals, and each time, the same question arises: Does this measure somehow contribute to illegal immigration? For Ramirez, and a noisy subset of Arizona, yes, it does. Opponents of allowing undocumented students to pay in-state tuition, or even attend school at all, imagine that the idea is the equivalent of granting them permission to break the law. To them, it says, “It’s OK that you jumped the border. No big deal. Here’s a college degree!” It’s hard to picture, but foreigners probably don’t wake up one morning and think to themselves that, oh, boy, today sure is a fine day to hop the border and invade the United States, one classroom at a time. Denver’s interim Mayor Guillermo “Bill” Vidal, said that, as a Cuban immigrant, he could relate to undocumented students. Vidal asked legislators to support the Colorado bill. “I’m here to plead with you when thinking about these kids. It’s important to separate their plight from the debate on illegal immigration,” Vidal said. Allowing undocumented students to pay in-state tuition isn’t giving them a free pass to mooch off everyone else without paperwork. The Maryland Senate’s criteria essentially establish residency as much as you can without being entirely legal. Is there something wrong with that? Maybe. Is it worth barring them from receiving an education, or requiring them to pay far more than they should actually have to for one? No. The illegal immigration debate asks a lot of hard questions. Education’s not one. — Editorials are determined by the Daily Wildcat editorial board and written by one of its members. They are Kristina Bui, Ken Contrata, Michelle A.

‘Judas’ demonstrates double standard Nyles Kendall Arizona Daily Wildcat

C

hart-topping diva Lady Gaga has spat in the face of Christians once again. “Judas,” the pop star’s latest single, has followers of the Catholic faith up in arms. The song, which was “leaked” four days before its scheduled release (an obvious reference to Judas’s betrayal of Jesus four days before Easter), is sung from the perspective of the biblical prostitute-turneddisciple Mary Magdalene. At the end of the number, Magdalene, a Roman Catholic saint, professes her devotion to Jesus’s betrayer, “the demon.” “Judas! Juda-as, Judas! Juda-as Judas! Judaas Judas! GAGA!” belts the chorus. Gaga, an ex-Catholic, told Britain’s NME magazine that the lyrics were sent from God. The singer’s fans, who refer to themselves as “monsters,” believe the song teaches a deep and profound moral lesson, one that has been lost in the rush to accuse their “Mama monster” of blasphemy. But if these “monsters” were honest with themselves, they’d realize that “Judas” is nothing more than an attention-grabbing stunt by a “fame-hooker” looking for a

controversial way to line her pockets. Gaga’s 15 minutes of fame are almost up and all she’s concerned with is remaining relevant and wealthy. The millions of Catholics she’ll offend with her blasphemous antics are nothing in comparison to the millions of dollars she’ll reap in record sales. And it isn’t the first time the songstress has denigrated Christianity for a profit. In her music video to “Alejendro,” Gaga, surrounded by half-naked men and dressed in a skin-tight nun’s habit, deep throats an entire rosary. Her offensive song lyrics and inappropriate use of Christian iconography demonstrate one of society’s glaring double standards. In the media, Christianity is a constant source of derision and belittlement, whiles other religions, Islam in particular, are treated with the utmost deference. Cecilia Maldonados of Chicanos Unidos Arizona, a Catholic Latino group based in Phoenix, said it best: “Why can’t Lady Gaga pretend to be Muhammad? Now that would be brave! It’s so easy to knock Catholicism and Christianity these days.”

Thus far, the reaction to “Judas” has been comparatively milder than the firestorm that immolated “South Park” in response to its depiction of Muhammad in “Episode 201.” After an Islamic fundamentalist group based in New York threatened the show’s creators with physical harm, Comedy Central censored the prophet’s image. Small-town Koran-burning Pastor Terry Jones received wall-to-wall media coverage for his “Burn a Koran Day” after some Muslims contended it was an affront to Islam that would be met with violent protest. Catholics should not have to threaten Lady Gaga with inquisition-style torture to be accorded the same respect. Comedy Central hasn’t batted an eye at “South Park’s” depiction of Jesus, and the 24hour news cycle that inundated Jones hasn’t said a thing about Lady Gaga’s “Judas” music video slated to premier on “American Idol” next week. Placating Muslims out of the fear of radicalism and political incorrectness, while making a mockery of Christianity, is a gross double standard that should be addressed immediately. One can only hope that the media will take the necessary steps to reverse the damage it has wrought. — Nyles Kendall is a political science junior. He can be reached at letters@wildcat.arizona.edu.

Protests should inspire students Elisa Meza Arizona Daily Wildcat

T

here is a transforming civil rights movement rising in Tucson. It’s rising in a state that created its own reputation of always finding a way to shock the rest of the country with its illogical, xenophobic legislation. This movement is vocalizing itself, and the youth are its leaders. They have become the latest pioneers in the movement to speak up for human rights once again in Arizona. History was made just blocks south of the UA at Tucson Unified School District’s main headquarters on Tuesday evening. Hundreds gathered in reaction to a proposal by TUSD Governing Board President Mark Stegeman. This resolution would turn the district’s Mexican American studies courses into electives. Out of all the ethnic studies courses offered by TUSD, MAS was the sole subject singled out to no longer serve as an option to fulfill core-curriculum requirements. Stegeman has said numerous times, including at Save Ethnic Studies’ latest press conference on Monday morning, that this resolution has nothing to do with House Bill 2281, the state-wide ban on ethnic studies that “advocate ethnic solidarity” or “promote overthrow of the U.S. government.” He even claims to oppose the bill. However, on Tuesday evening, his resolution said the contrary. The Arizona Daily Star reported that TUSD board members Judy Burns and Adelita Grijalva said they won’t support Stegeman’s resolution and that “the timing for its introduction is bad considering that the Arizona Department of Education is

scrutinizing the program to determine if it complies with state law.” While private auditors invade ethnic studies classrooms each day, searching for hints of “ethnic chauvinism,” Stegeman placed this resolution on Tuesday’s board meeting agenda. What he didn’t expect was so much resistance. According to Huffington Post blogger Jeff Biggers, ethnic studies supporters at Tuesday’s meeting “derailed the introduction of a controversial resolution that would have terminated their acclaimed program’s core curriculum accreditation.” Students chained themselves to board members’ chairs, and forced the postponement of the meeting. Derailed, shut down, terminated. All verbs to describe the historic moment in which members from a local youth organization called UNIDOS proved how far they were willing to escalate to defend their program against decisions that would slowly dismantle the ethnic studies program. As quoted in Colorlines Magazine, Sal Baldenegro Jr., a member of the Southern Arizona Unity Coalition, said, “Just like the people of Wisconsin took a stand and said ‘enough is enough,’ the youth of Tucson are standing up and letting it be known that they are fed up with these attacks on their education and their future.” It has come down to Wisconsin-style uprisings. In less than a minute, nine individuals, including current ethnic studies students, chained themselves to the seats of those who hold the fate of their education.

In Arizona, those seats have never been taken from the decision makers in power. But now, the most dedicated to what education should be allowed has taken over: the students. When was the last time you heard about youth having consistent input in decisions on education? When schools are failing, adults within the institutions are the first to be blamed. Teachers are always put to the limits, forced to comply with national interruptions in what state standards should look like. All the while, students themselves are never considered. When students demand education, knowledge becomes invaluable. The empowerment youth feel when they physically defend their education is incomprehensible. Of course, the courage to defy authority may seem too much for the general audience. It may even seem obtrusive and rude. But when youth come to a meeting dressed in chains and successfully prevent a school board vote from happening, is the slight interruption all you can think of? The extent to which students will go to defend their education was illustrated this week. In the midst of intensely rising tuition on our own campus, a movement to defend education is happening all around us. Except for on our campus. This isn’t a debate on whether or not civil disobedience is the most effective path. Effectiveness is the last thing on Arizona legislators’ minds. This is a proposition for you to consider. How far would you be willing to go to defend access to an education? Exercise your right, with or without chains, but always with attentiveness to the movements surrounding you. — Elisa Meza is a junior studying English.

By Kellie Mejdrich Arizona Daily Wildcat Twenty-five musicians. Twelve hours. Five bands who have never played a note with each other. A typical slogan to describe the “Rock Lottery,” a charity event started in 1997 by Chris Weber in Denton, Texas, in a group known as the Good/Bad Art Collective. The event started as a way to use creative musicians’ talents to raise money for charity. It’s been a success in New York and Seattle. Now it’s coming to Tucson. Twenty-five musicians will play at Plush on May 7 at 9 p.m. The catch is, they wont be playing with their own bands, with the bands they’re used to. Through a lottery-style drawing, the musicians will be broken up into groups of five, then will be given 12 hours to compose three

for the first time. “It’s a rare chance to see people who would never play music together,” said Mike Sanger, web developer of Cystic Life, local musician and organizer of the event. “It’s really creative improv.” Cystic Life is a nonprofit organization that educates and provides individuals with cystic fibrosis a place to share information and connect. All the money raised in the Rock Lotto will go toward Cystic Life’s educational materials and its grant program, which includes activity, educational and medical grants for those in need. This can range from anything to helping a person with cystic fibrosis get a gym membership (exercise helps the managment of CF) to helping the community get medical equipment or produce educational materials. In addition to a storehouse of informative videos, links and pamphlets, the website CysticLife.org provides individuals in the CF community with a place to meet online. “Our main focus is building a true social network for the CF community,” said Ronnie Sharpe, founder of Cystic Life. “CF is a very isolating community. We’re discouraged from meeting in person,” Sharpe said. “We’re able to bring people together who would otherwise be discouraged from meeting face to face.” Putting together the event has been oddly difficult, because the Tucson music scene is so connected, Sanger said. But after months of planning, the list of

artists participating in the Rock Lottery is a diverse one. Some well-known stars include Gabriel Sullivan, Brian Lopez of Mostly Bears, and Winston Watson, who was a drummer for Bob Dylan during one leg of his long music career. “I’ve been more concerned about keeping it wild card and diverse,” Sanger said, stressing that Tucson’s hyper-connected music community inspired him to put the Rock Lotto together. Sanger said he hopes people

can see how a Tucson’s musical passion can be a powerful tool to help others. The Rock Lotto hopes to be a fun event that reminds people of the power of community, Sanger said. But essentially it’s about raising awareness and money for people with cystic fibrosis. “If we could change one person’s mind or educate one person,” Sharpe said, “we would consider it a mission accomplished.”

After getting in trouble with Spring Fling staff, a female UA student sent threatening text messages to a friend on April 21. Both the student and her friend were involved in the same club at the UA. During Spring Fling, the student was reprimanded for taking food from a booth without paying. After being scolded by staff for the incident, the student became upset with her friend, who was present at the time of the conversation, for not taking her side. At 2:43 p.m. on April 21, the friend received uncalled for text messages from the student. “If I was your mom, of course I’d love your sister more. She’s lovely and pretty unlike you ugly piece of shit. Even your mind is polluted. Open your legs to beg your puppy to pay your plastic surgery fee since he’s going to own a huge business someday,” said the text message from the student. At 2:52 p.m., the friend received another message saying, “Do you even know who your real dad is? Daughter of a Bitch.” The friend reported the text messages to UAPD saying that she only wanted the incident to be documented and did not want officers to contact the student.

NASA to launch magnet for cosmos study McClatchy Newspapers CAPE CANAVERAL, Fla. — For most people, the final launch of the space shuttle Endeavour is a love story, a gripping tale about the astronaut married to the congresswoman who was critically injured in a mass shooting some months ago. But for Massachusetts Institute of Technology professor Samuel C.C. Ting, Endeavour ’s Friday take-off is about finding the secrets to the universe. The Nobel prize-winning physicist spent the past 17 years figuring out how to build — and fund — a magnet big enough to shoot into space and study the cosmos. His $2 billion particle detector — the Alpha Magnetic Spectrometer — leaves Friday for the international space station, and will never come back. For the first time, a device will study the particles in space that would otherwise be lost in the atmosphere. “Why we want to do it is to find what is the origin of the universe,” Ting explained. “What is the universe made out of?” The AMS, as it’s known, is the principal payload (that’s “cargo” in space

lingo) for the Endeavour ’s final mission. It’s launch is scheduled for 3:47 p.m. EDT, weather permitting. It will be a bittersweet moment for the National Aeronautics and Space Administration, which is preparing for its final shuttle launch in June. So while the Space Coast community prepares for a viewing crowd expected to reach 700,000, NASA scrambles for visits from President Barack Obama and his family. Arizona Rep. Gabrielle Giffords, shot in the head by a would-be assassin’s bullet in January, is also expected. Her husband Mark Kelly is the flight captain and he wrestled with the difficult choice of whether to leave for a two-week mission while his wife struggled to regain speech and mobility. Both she and the first family are expected to be out of sight Friday, away from the more than 2,000 journalists who registered to chronicle the historic mission. “I feel quite sad that this happened to him,” Ting said in an interview. “I admire Capt. Kelly’s ability to carry it on.” He and other experts interviewed insist that Kelly is ready for the mission.

ENERGY continued from page 1 and those who want to invest in smaller wind turbines are available “to make sure the option is there,” he said. Salkowski said that utility companies face problems when it comes to storage of intermittent renewable energy. “The wind stops blowing, all of a sudden your energy goes away and that’s a huge problem,” he said. “Before we can fully integrate wind, we need to improve the storage capacity of our grid.” But Arizona utilities have been working to create 15 percent of their power from renewable sources by 2025 to meet legislative requirements, so plans for wind turbines and solar panels have been proposed across the state and outside of it. TEP has signed a contract with a company in Deming, N.M., to develop a 50-megawatt wind farm expected to be complete at the end of this year. Although TEP currently doesn’t utilize much in the way of wind resource as part of the energy mix, Salkowski said, adding wind into their renewable energy bank by next year could at least double that impact. The Arizona Research Institute for Solar Energy, AzRISE, is also doing work in solar energy storage, something that can be easily translated to wind, Salkowski said. A compressed air storage system to be housed in the UA Solar and Technology Park is part of solving this problem, he said. Leuthold said the work the UA does with places like Idaho Power, where 20 percent of their energy output is reliant on wind, helps in forecasting and weather models produced by the university. But he said Arizonans shouldn’t hold their breath for us to achieve the same level of sustainability through wind energy. “Certainly not here, not 20 percent wind. It’s just not windy enough,” Leuthold said.

“It’s a lot easier and probably less cost than a large solar insulation but it’s just not a mature technology.” He said that wind “makes sense for other places,” like Idaho, or the Columbia River in Washington where there is significant wind, but that Arizona is at a disadvantage with its mountains and metropolitan areas. “When the wind dies, they have an easy and cheap standby,” Leuthold said of the northwest and Midwest. “In Arizona we don’t have that utility, we’d have to use natural gas plants to do that.” But Leuthold said his forecasting system, which is 30 percent more accurate than other forecast models, can predict wind speeds up to three days in advance. He said this could allow Arizonans to see, of our smaller amount of wind, what we can use. The product will eventually be spun out as a commercial product through the university and is already being used by the U.S. Air Force, the aforementioned Salt River Project and Tucson Electric Power. “There’s much more sun here than there is wind,” he said. “But it’s good to have both.”

Weather threatens to Jobless claims rise delay shuttle launch McClatchy Tribune

NASA test director Jeff Spaulding, who oversees the countdown, said the estimates cited earlier of 45,000 people at Kennedy Space Center and 700,000 in Brevard County were probably good.

McClatchy Tribune CAPE CANAVERAL, Fla. — Everything is on track for Friday’s launch of the space shuttle Endeavour, with President Barack Obama, U.S. Rep. Gabrielle Giffords, and as many as 700,000 onlookers along the Space Coast on hand to cheer its final mission. But weather could disappoint everyone. Shuttle weather officer Kathy Winters said Thursday that the prospects of crosswinds and cloud cover Friday afternoon have increased the probability of a weather-delayed launch to 30 percent, up from the 20 percent prediction NASA has been holding much of the week. The storm front that devastated Alabama and other southern states Wednesday night is likely to pass through Kennedy Space Center Thursday night but it is not expected to cause severe weather here and should be gone by midnight, she said. So it should have no effect on Friday’s weather-sensitive activities, which begin with filling the rocket’s external fuel tank. The launch is slated for 3:47 p.m. EDT. The Obama family and Giffords, the Arizona Democrat critically wounded in the Tucson shooting in January, are planning to be at Kennedy for the launch, along with scores of other VIPs. Giffords’ husband, Navy Capt. Mark Kelly, is Endeavour’s commander. Winters said she would not be surprised if there were weather alerts raised during the day on Friday, but conditions should improve, and by late afternoon and should be fine for launch. “Our big concerns are crosswinds and (low cloud) ceilings lingering in the area,� Winters said. Also lingering in the area Friday: hundreds of thousands of shuttle watchers.

WASHINGTON — Two new snapshots of the economy, one showing a sharp slowdown in first-quarter economic output and the other a surge in weekly unemployment claims, underscored the fragility of the recovery, its vulnerability to global shocks and the stilllong road ahead for millions of American workers. Many analysts tended to shrug off the report that gross domestic product grew by just 1.8 percent in the first part of the year — down from 3.1 percent in the fourth quarter of last year. Economists said the slowdown was due mostly to temporary factors such as the harsh winter weather and a surge in oil and food prices, which took a bite out of consumer spending and the nation’s trade. Officials at the Federal Reserve as well as many private forecasters expect GDP to bounce back up to 3 percent or higher in the rest of the year. But that depends partly on an easing of global economic and political problems, particularly the unrest in the Middle East that is behind the spike in petroleum prices. Such a reduction of tensions is far from certain. And new shocks are also possible, given the continuing upheavals in the region and elsewhere. The latest GDP figures were close to analysts’ expectations, but the jobless claims report was an unwelcome

surprise. With hiring picking up in the past two months, experts were looking for a dip in new filings for jobless benefits. Instead, the claims rose for the second time in three weeks, to the highest level since late January. These figures are volatile from week to week, and some seasonal and temporary factors may have played a role in the latest jump, including the Easter holiday and the disaster in Japan, which disrupted delivery of parts in the auto and electronics industry. Still, the report provided another discouraging sign for an economy that is struggling with 8.8 percent unemployment nearly two years after the official end of the recession last year. Even before Thursday’s report, economists including Federal Reserve Chairman Ben S. Bernanke weren’t particularly encouraging that the jobless

rate would come down quickly. In fact, Bernanke said Wednesday that high unemployment and the slow pace of the jobs recovery were key factors behind the Fed’s continued easycredit policies. “On both economic growth and jobs, we’re seeing some retrenchment,� said Sung Won Sohn, an economist at California State University. As for energy prices, he added, “It could get worse in the second quarter.� The damaging effects of higher oil and commodity prices were evident in the GDP report from the Commerce Department. Personal consumer spending, which had risen an impressive 4 percent in the fourth quarter, dipped back down to 2.7 percent in the first three months of this year. “We’re already beginning to see a slowdown in traffic counts in highways and freeways,� said Sohn. That includes people like Angela Waldron, a stay-at-home mom in central Michigan. She said she wasn’t making as many trips out to stores and other places because she’s cutting back on driving. What’s more, the former school teacher said, she’s paying more for fruits and fresh produce. “Prices have gone up,� she said. Behind higher oil and food prices, inflation has picked up in recent months, cutting into consumers’ purchasing power. It’s also hurting businesses.

London all set to stage spectacular royal wedding MCCLATCHY TRIBUNE LONDON — After months of elaborate preparations and mounting excitement, London Thursday put the finishing touches to the royal wedding between Prince William and Kate Middleton — which will be an event mixing pomp and tradition with youth and modernity. Middleton, a middle-class girl who met her prince at university some eight years ago, will emerge from the marriage service at Westminster Abbey as a princess — and a potential future queen. On Thursday, the 29-yearold bride-to-be made her final trip to the Abbey as Miss Middleton, when she guided a team of bridesmaids and pageboys through the wedding drill for one last time. Late Wednesday, William and Kate spent nearly two hours for a full rehearsal at the Abbey, and were cheered by onlookers as they emerged. “The affection shown to us by so many people during our engagement has been incredibly moving, and has touched us both deeply, they said in a message accompanying the release of the official wedding program.

Some 2,000 guests, including many foreign royals, heads of states, politicians, diplomats and celebrities, will attend the service, which will be followed by a balcony appearance — and public kiss — at Buckingham Palace, a reception and a buffet dinner. While on Thursday the sun was still shining on the growing number of royal fans camping at the Abbey, the palace and along the route of the wedding procession, forecasters have predicted showers and strong winds for Friday. In line with her modern image, Middleton — as Princess Diana before her — has chosen to drop the word “obey” from her wedding vows, instead promising to “love, comfort and honor” her prince. After the exchange of vows, Middleton will automatically become Her Royal Highness, Princess William of Wales. She could, either Friday or at a later date, become Princess Catherine — using her full Christian name. Just as she has waited patiently for years for her man — and kept a discreet silence on her private life — Middleton has managed to keep the secret of her bridal gown. William is expected to marry in his Royal Air

Force uniform. Most people will get a glimpse of the wedding dress when the bride leaves a five-star hotel in central London with her father, Michael Middleton, in an official Rolls-Royce for the service at 11 a.m. (6 a.m. EDT). She will be on full view at arrival at the Abbey, where William will have had a nervous 45-minute wait inside. His younger brother, Prince Harry, will be best man, and Pippa, Middleton’s younger sister, will be maid of honor. After the service, the newlyweds will travel by royal carriage to Buckingham Palace, amid a colorful display of military pomp and pageantry, and tens of thousands of spectators. Depending on the weather, an open or closed carriage will be chosen. The wedding, considered by some as a major “celebrity event,” will be beamed around the world to an audience of an estimated 2.2 billion. Around the Abbey and along the route, police surveillance units could be seen taking position in parks and on rooftops Thursday, as Scotland Yard pledged it would deal “robustly” with any attempts to disrupt the day.

VATICAN CITY — John Paul II’s beatification on Sunday will mark the penultimate stage in the process to make the late Polish-born pontiff a saint, an event seen as inappropriate by some critics, but eagerly anticipated by millions of admirers. Indeed, Pope Benedict XVI seemed in tune with the will of the faithful when he decided in 2005 to waive the normal fiveyear waiting period after a candidate’s death in order to launch the beatification process. The chant of “Santo subito!’’ (Saint immediately!), which rose up from St. Peter’s Square during John Paul’s funeral, suggested that, for many, there was no doubting the holiness of the man who had led the Catholic Church for almost three decades. Though not as instant as some would have liked, John Paul’s beatification — the fastest in modern times — comes just over six years since his death on April 2, 2005. Earlier this year, Benedict gave the final go-ahead after church experts approved the healing of a French nun afflicted by Parkinson’s as a miracle attributable to John Paul’s intercession. It terms of speed, it edges out, by 15 days, the 2003 beatification of Mother Teresa, the ethnic-Albanian, Macedonian-born nun who won worldwide admiration for her work in the slums of Calcutta

and who died in 1997. The archbishop of Krakow, Poland — Cardinal Stanislaw Dziwisz, who for nearly 40 years served as John Paul’s personal secretary — has stressed what he says are similarities between John Paul and Mother Teresa. “One day, watching on TV Mother Teresa among her poor, he (John Paul) let slip the remark that she should have been made a saint while she was still alive … but I thought that the same could have been said about him (John Paul) too,” Dziwisz told Rome newspaper La Repubblica in a recent interview. The two men began working together in their native, then communist-ruled, Poland before moving to Rome together following John Paul’s election as pope in 1978. From his Vatican vantage point, Dziwisz was able to witness firsthand what has been widely regarded as John Paul’s momentous pontificate, the second longest recorded in history.

County law requires active gambling to take place on property zoned for gaming for at least one shift every 18 months or else the zoning expires. Thus, the landowner, Marriott International, hired Vegas-based United Coin Machine Co. to create this pop-up casino. — AOL News

Sagittarius (Nov. 22 - Dec. 21) — Today is a 6 — Don’t mind those who don’t appreciate your artistic ability. Now is a good time to draw or paint. Don’t worry about what it looks like.

Reed still on board Arizona DE not selected in first round of NFL Draft Arizona Daily Wildcat

Former Wildcat Brooks Reed wasn’t selected in the first round of the NFL Draft on Thursday night.

Tim Glass/Arizona Daily Wildcat

Brooks Reed watched the first round of the NFL Draft with his family at Frog and Firkin on Thursday night. Reed was projected by some to be selected in the first round. The defensive end and outside linebacker will likely now be picked in the second round.

Reed was projected by many publications as a first-round pick, but he will now likely be chosen in the second round.

Baseball hosts USC Clock is ticking for struggling ’Cats By Alex Williams Arizona Daily Wildcat The Arizona baseball team is looking for payback this weekend. But it’s not because of the way the Wildcats, who currently sitting at seventh in the Pacific 10 Conference standings, have struggled this year. It’s also not because of the current abysmal skid they are on, having lost four of their last five — the only win coming behind a Kyle Simon complete game three-hitter. It’s because of how Arizona was embarrassed while being swept by a struggling Southern California team that was well on its way to getting its coach fired a year ago. “After last year, we’re definitely going to sweep those guys,” sophomore pitcher Kurt Heyer said. But payback isn’t the only reason the Wildcats have their eyes set on a sweep this weekend. There are only three weekends of conference play remaining after the USC series, and Arizona (2416, 6-9 Pac-10) is running out of time to salvage its Pac-10 record. “I’m getting a little tired of losing,” said head coach Andy Lopez. “Is there a feeling that we’re running out of time? If we continue to lose two out of three, then yes. I think there’s still plenty of time to do what we need to do. But we’ve

Reed finished his career as a defensive end at Arizona with 114 total tackles, 25 tackles for a loss and 17 sacks.

Track blazing through season

Both Wildcat teams in top 10 By Kevin Nadakal Arizona Daily Wildcat

Mike Christy/Arizona Daily Wildcat

Outfielder Robert Refsnyder and the rest of the Arizona lineup will need to get back to their hitting ways this weekend against Southern California. The Wildcats have struggled of late and are trying to put together a winning streak before the regular season ends.

got to start winning series. I don’t think we’ve run out of time yet, but we need to get going.” There isn’t just one area of poor play that has bothered Arizona. Inconsistency has plagued both the bullpen and the lineup through Pac-10 play, and while Friday and Saturday starting pitching has been solid, Sunday has been a disaster. “We’re just struggling right now, everybody, the whole team is,” said pitcher Bryce Bandilla. “You can’t say pitching isn’t doing its job, you can’t say that hitting isn’t doing their job. It’s a team effort.”

Bandilla also knows that Arizona needs to string together wins this weekend against the Trojans (18-22, 8-7), who are just two games ahead of the Wildcats in the standings. “We’re not panicking, but we’ve backed ourselves into a corner with the way we’ve played,” he said. “We’re going to have to get hot this weekend. We can’t drop another series in the Pac-10. We’re going to have to change something or just get hot.” Change is coming in the form of a switch in the pitching rotation. Heyer will pitch Sunday instead of Friday, and usual Sunday

starter Tyler Hale isn’t in the rotation, being replaced by freshman Konner Wade, who will start Friday’s game. Kyle Simon will be on the mound on Saturday in his usual spot. Although the wins haven’t come yet, the Wildcats have been putting in extra work during practice, hoping to break their skid. “We’ve just got to keep working hard and getting after it in practice,” said catcher Jett Bandy. “We’ve got to win. We have four series in the Pac-10, and we’ve got to win all those, flat out. There’s no question about it.”

Duck hunting

Arizona looks to get back on track By Tyler Johnson Arizona Daily Wildcat

Freshman pitcher Shelby Babcock will continue to pitch under an intense spotlight this weekend as starter Kenzie Fowler continues to rest because of a concussion. The Wildcats will host Oregon for a three-game series.

Despite a sweep at the hands of ASU last weekend, the No. 10 Wildcats are now in a tie for second place in the Pacific 10 Conference with California and UCLA. This weekend, they have a chance to improve their position against No. 16 Oregon, who has struggled to a 5-7 conference record so far. One thing that Oregon brings into the series is one of the Pac-10’s top pitching staffs. The Ducks have the third best team ERA in the conference at 1.92. The highlight of the staff is Jessica Moore. The sophomore pitcher is second in the conference this season with an ERA of 1.42. The Ducks’ other pitchers Samantha Skillingstad and Mikayla Endicott have posted solid ERAs of 2.17 and 2.19, respectively. In contrast, the Wildcats will likely

put a group of position players in the circle for the second straight weekend due to the continued absence of sophomore ace Kenzie Fowler. This will help take some of the pressure off freshman Shelby Babcock, who is starting in Fowler’s wake. Fillin pitchers Victoria Kemp, Baillie Kirker and Brittany Lastrapes have helped the team as best as they could. They did, however, give the Wildcats a chance to win against ASU on Saturday. The substitutes allowed eight runs against the Sun Devils, which may have been enough for the Wildcats to remain competitive if they had cashed in on the 10 runners they put on base. According to senior catcher Stacie Chambers, who was the battery mate for four different pitchers on Saturday, the team is doing a good job of working through Fowler ’s absence. SOFTBALL, page 15

The University of Arizona men and women’s track teams continue to re-write the history books as they climb up the rankings this season. The men are now ranked No. 9 in the country after being unranked just two weeks ago. The women have steadily risen to No. 7 in the country, following the lead of sophomores Julie Labonte and Brigetta Barrett. Although the track teams have been very successful at Arizona, it has been rare that both teams experience success at the same time. This is the first time that both the men and women have been in the top 10 since 1989. Labonte has led the way in the shot put, holding the No. 1 spot in the country. Labonte, who hails from Quebec, Canada, matched the Canadian national record last week with a throw of 58 feet and six inches. With the throw, she earned her second Pacific 10 Conference field Athlete of the Week award in three weeks. Like Labonte, Barrett asserts her dominance into the high jump, holding the No. 1 position in the country. The sophomore has already set the high mark this season for the NCAA and the world with a high jump that measured 1.90m. On the men’s team, Stephen Sambu, a junior, has carried over his cross-country success to track with ease. Sambu is in his first year at Arizona after transferring from Rend Lake, a community college in Illinois, and has not looked back since. Sambu has the No. 1 time in the country for the 5,000m followed closely by fellow Wildcat, Lawi Lalang. Lalang, a freshman, has the second fastest 5,000m time in the country. Both the men and women will head to Tempe this Saturday for the Duel in the Desert against ASU and Northern Arizona. With either a win by the men or the women the UA will take home the Territorial Cup for the second consecutive season.

Who will win Game 1 between the Celtics and Heat? As a Knicks fan, I’m torn. Rooting against Boston is in my nature, especially considering they just swept my Knickerbockers. However, I seem to remember getting the ultimate case of blue balls from LeBron James last summer. Truth be told, I’ve never liked LeBron but was willing to be a fan once he came to the Garden. But he didn’t. Also, despite my allegiances to New York, Kevin Garnett is my favorite player in the NBA. Celtics 95, Heat 82

There’s nothing more guaranteed in sports than Gloria James’ son sucking in Boston. I mean this could be the series where James calls it quits and decides nothing is more humiliating than going to Boston every spring to get pounded over and over again. Delonte knows what’s up. Walk off the court, walk into the tunnel of the Garden, take off your headband, take off your jersey and just give up. This series will be won or lost by James. And this series will not be won by the Heat. Cue the Duckboats!

The Celtics, no matter how ugly it was, handled a two-star team in New York. Meanwhile, as objective as I try to be and not become a Miami Heat hater, their run won’t make it to the NBA Finals in the first year of this grand experiment; they are still finding their playoff swagger. And do you expect Mike Bibby to hit any open 3-pointers? If so, my name is Snuffleupagus. Also, Chris Bosh is weak. Boston takes Game 1. Celtics 85, Heat 81

Celtics 109, Heat 87

Who will be Mr. Irrelevant? You’re not going to get a contributor with the last pick in the NFL Draft, so I say take a chance on someone with a name. And what name could possibly be more charmed than Vanderbilt defensive tackle Adam Smotherman? None. It’s meant to be. Adam Smotherman, Vanderbilt

Nobody gets it better than Mr. Irrelevant. Every year a new guy wakes up one morning as a scrub and ends the day slamming broads at Newport Brewing Company. And when you think about slamming broads of Orange County, you think Vance Cuff of Georgia. The guy just gets slamming broads. That’s his name. Vance Slambroad Cuff. Like, excuse me Mr. Cuff, watch out where you’re slamming those broads. This summer, while everyone else is locked out of their training facilities, watch for Cuff just sailing a yacht around Balboa Island while broads literally slam him. That’s life as Mr. Irrelevant. Cuff your chick.

I’m a big fan of Kyle Miller, a gifted longsnapper out of Mount Union. According to NflDraftScout.com, he’s No. 10 on the list of longsnappers but I think that’s mostly due to little exposure. Out of the other nine players, Miller is the most physically gifted, at 6-foot-5, 258 pounds. That’s secondlargest of longsnappers, but he’s also second-fastest in the 40-yard dash. Impressive.

Panthers pin their hopes on Auburn’s Heisman-winning quarterback MCCLATCHY TRIBUNE Cam Newton’s remarkable — and controversial — 16-month ascension from a junior college player in southeast Texas to the NFL’s No. 1 draft pick culminated Thursday in New York when the Panthers selected the Auburn star in the hopes he will be the franchise quarterback they have long lacked. The Panthers ended months of scouting, background checks and public debate by taking the player who won a national championship and Heisman Trophy under a cloud of suspicion in his lone season as a major-college starter. The choice of Newton drew cheers from about 10,000 fans at a party at Bank of America Stadium, where they gathered to see what the Panthers would do when they exercised the No. 1 pick for the first time in franchise history. Meanwhile, in New York, Newton initially struggled to find the right words to describe his journey. But the Atlanta-area native said he was excited to make Charlotte his new home and help the Panthers “go from worst to first.” The Panthers had the top pick in 1995 before their inaugural season, but traded it to Cincinnati on draft day and took Penn State quarterback Kerry Collins at No. 5.

The Panthers held on to the pick this year, ignoring the experts who said Newton’s personal baggage and lack of experience in a pro-style offense presented too many risks to invest in a No. 1 pick. Newton was arrested at Florida and left school after alleged instances of academic cheating. The NCAA investigated a payfor-play scheme after Newton’s father shopped him to schools for $200,000, before determining Newton was not aware of his father’s actions. But the Panthers talked with coaches and teammates at each of Newton’s three schools, and were satisfied with what they heard. Coach Ron Rivera said he called a friend in the Florida program and “put him on the spot” about Newton. “This was not done lightly,” said Rivera, adding that some of the stories about Newton were overblown. As the process went on, the Panthers determined the risks were outweighed by the possible rewards of a 6-foot-5, 248-pound quarterback who shredded SEC defenses last season with his arm and feet. Newton threw for 2,854 yards and ran for 1,473, becoming the third player in FBS history to score 20 touchdowns rushing and passing in a season. The others were Nevada’s Colin Kaepernick

last season and Florida’s Tim Tebow in 2007, when Newton was his backup. “You look at what he does and what he’s capable of doing. As a defensive coordinator, he’s going to impact the way you approach him as an offensive player,” Rivera said. “He’s going to impact the way people call defenses.” But Newton’s success in a spread offense with simple terminology at Auburn raised questions about how he will handle the complexities of an NFL offense. Concerns about Newton’s accuracy followed a shaky combine performance. Rivera said offensive coordinator Rob Chudzinski did have concerns about Newton’s limited background with a sophisticated offense. Rivera said when Chudzinski was asked whether he would have to scale back the playbook for Newton, Chudzinski replied: “A portion of it — but then again you’re going to add another portion because of what he does differently.” Newton’s apprenticeship could begin as soon as Friday. After U.S. District Judge Susan Nelson rejected the NFL’s request to stay her order lifting the lockout, the league will allow players to report to facilities, meet with coaches and pick up their playbooks beginning this morning.

continued from page 14 “We have to play the game, we can’t just quit,” she said. “We have to work through it. That’s what we’re doing. We have Shelby (Babcock) and we have the other three helping us out now, so we gotta do what we gotta do.” Head coach Mike Candrea has been positive about the effort that Arizona’s substitute pitchers have put forth. “I was very pleased with some kids that we called upon to do some things,” he said. “They did a good job, didn’t quite get it done. But we’ll move forward from it.” The subs will likely welcome this weekend’s opportunity to pitch against a lesser lineup than ASU’s. The Sun Devils are first in the Pac-10 with a team batting average of .355 and every hitter in the order batting over .300, while Oregon is sixth in the conference with a .309 average. The games take place at 7 p.m. on Friday and Saturday and noon on Sunday at Hillenbrand Stadium.

Giants find themselves a Prince MCCLATCHY NEWSPAPERS EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. — General manager Jerry Reese promises each year to take the best player available when the Giants’ first-round selection comes around. He really stuck to that philosophy Thursday night, when the team selected Nebraska cornerback Prince Amukamara with the 19th selection. Offensive line was the Giants’ No. 1 priority entering the NFL Draft, but the need gave way to value when Amukamara, who figured to be a top 10 selection, slipped to No. 19. “We’re very excited; the defensive coaches are very excited; our whole draft room is excited,” Reese said after selecting the 6-foot, 206-pound cornerback. “We were really surprised he was still there. We thought he would be picked a lot higher.” “He was clearly the highestrated player on the board,” coach Tom Coughlin said. Amukamara was rated the second cornerback in the draft and not that far behind No. 1 Patrick Peterson, who went to Arizona with the fifth pick. He was a unanimous All-America selection and the Big 12 Defensive Player of the Year in 2010. Yet several teams in need of cornerback help, including the Houston Texans, passed on him. That didn’t scare off the Giants. The only hesitance in making the selection was to see what other teams might offer for their choice. “But nobody gave us a decent enough offer,” Reese said. Reese was asked if he worries about a player dropping that far in a round and wonders if there’s a reason for the fall. “We go by what we have on him,” he said. “We thought he is a terrific player. He has the height, the weight, the speed, the production. He’s a good tackler and a physical player.
