$136 mil building project gets OK BY Nicholas Peppe
Arizona Summer Wildcat
The UA and the City of Phoenix have been given the green light to begin construction on a 10-story, $136 million research building that will be the newest addition to the downtown Phoenix Biomedical Campus. The Arizona Board of Regents approved plans for the production of the massive 245,000-square-foot Biosciences Partnership Building on Thursday and construction could begin as early as September, school officials said. “In this building, partnerships will be forged in which our scholars and researchers will be looking for the answers to some pretty daunting questions,” President Ann Weaver Hart said in a video with Phoenix Mayor Greg Stanton.
The newest building on the Phoenix Biomedical Campus will be located directly north of the Health Sciences Education Building near Seventh Street and Fillmore Street in downtown Phoenix, according to a press release by the UA College of Medicine — Phoenix last week. The building site, which was home to a forgotten high school in the heart of Phoenix is now something valuable, Stanton said. “When Phoenix made its initial investment in the downtown Biomedical Campus just over a decade ago we believed that it would pay dividends for years to come,” Stanton said. “We have seen that investment pay off.” According to a press release, the new Biosciences Partnership Building will provide

The UA is partnering with the City of Phoenix to build a 10-story building that will allow scientists to research questions about health care. The construction is expected to be complete by late 2016 and will create roughly 500 construction jobs and 400 permanent jobs.
UA updates withdrawal, testing policies in the fall
Regents make little changes to student fees

The UA is changing three policies effective this fall regarding special examinations and withdrawing from courses. Students who want to take the College Level Examination Program, an exam used to receive credit for a course without taking the course, no longer need to have fewer than 55 units of credit at the UA under the CLEP policy revision. Before this policy change, students who wanted to take the CLEP exam were often unable to receive credit rebecca MArie Sasnett/ARizona Summer Wildcat because they had already exceeded the Morgan Meyer, a communication junior, recieves paperwork for her math test from Brittany 55-unit limit, said Roxie Catts, director Brown, a microbiology senior and receptionist, before heading into an exam room in University
Information Technology Services on Friday. Under revised policies beginning in the fall, students who want to take the College Level Examination Program are no longer restricted by credit limits.
The Arizona Board of Regents held its monthly meeting at Northern Arizona University on Thursday and Friday to discuss financial issues facing the state universities. Eileen Klein, president of the board, spoke about the current challenges, one of which is a lack of state funding. “Our entities are not as publicly financed or funded as they used to be, but we operate very much in the public interest irrespective of
funding sources,” Klein said. Klein said that all three universities have developed strategic plans that align with the board’s 2020 goals. She said that the strategic plans allow the public to see how the universities help meet the needs of the state of Arizona, therefore helping them earn public trust. The strategic plans are not the only way the board is attempting to increase transparency in funding. Klein said that the UA will change the current online billing statements so that students can see a detailed

UA scientists score supercomputer BY Meredith Morrissey Arizona Summer Wildcat
The UA now houses one of the world’s fastest computers, a supercomputer known as “El Gato,” which gives UA researchers the power to reach new heights of scientific achievement. Brant Robertson, an assistant professor of astronomy, along with collaborators from the department of astronomy, the School of Information: Science, Technology and Arts and the University Information Technology Services, obtained a $1.3 million grant from the National Science Foundation to fund the project. The Office of the Senior Vice President for Research provided additional funding, Robertson said. The Extremely LarGe Advanced TechnOlogy, nicknamed El Gato, was installed December 2013 in the UA Research Data Center. According to Robertson, El Gato differs from other computers on campus mainly because of its speed, data processing power and efficiency. El Gato is currently the world’s 336th fastest supercomputer. He also said the larger system and increased processing power allow researchers to perform more complex computations and run multiple calculations simultaneously. This level of processing is made

possible by the implementation of Graphics Processing Units (GPUs) in addition to Central Processing Units (CPUs). Using a hybrid system of the two types of processing units allows calculations to run almost 1,000 times faster than on a standard desktop, Robertson said.
This technology is an asset to UA researchers as it allows them to achieve more detailed results. Robertson pointed out that having access to a supercomputer can also help researchers obtain grants to fund their research. It is rare that a university is able to obtain funding for
a supercomputer, Robertson said, and most computers with this kind of power only exist in national facilities, making it a great resource for the campus as well as something that sets the UA apart from other research institutions. Faculty and staff are currently

using El Gato to address complex scientific issues ranging from the formation of black holes to pathogens on different types of plant life to DNA sequencing — yet El Gato is available to aid students in their own research as well. “I want students to know that this resource is there and available to them, and it’s much faster than desktops or laptops,” Robertson said. Apart from being a great resource for students, El Gato also serves as a resume-building opportunity. Learning how to use a supercomputer helps students build important technical skills. Many industries are using this type of technology, so students who are already familiar with it become more attractive to employers and graduate schools, Robertson said. Robertson and his collaborators want to encourage students to get an account on the system. To do so, students need to fill out a brief form and obtain a faculty sponsor, both of which can be done online, Robertson said. A symposium will be held on campus in September, during which supplier companies IBM, Nvidia and Intel will help train those interested in using the system.

description of the purpose of mandatory fees. In a previous interview, Klein said that the regents were going to review student fees in their summer session to see what the funds were being used for and if they were necessary. However, the board-approved fees for the UA for the 2014-15 school year were not lowered, and the combined cost of tuition and mandatory fees increased for all students. The cost of tuition and fees for incoming resident undergraduates has increased 5.4 percent
from the previous year. The combined cost has increased 1.8 percent for resident undergraduates enrolled prior to 2014 and 8.7 percent for nonresident undergraduates. The board also discussed the UA’s capital development plan, which totaled $413.8 million. The plan included five previously-approved projects and a proposal for a building project in Phoenix. The $136 million building project was approved. The board also approved a retention plan for multiple athletics employees at the UA.

nearly 500 jobs in design and construction and another 360 permanent jobs. The research will focus on a range of areas including neurosciences, health care outcomes, cancer and precision medicine with a workforce consisting of UA researchers and their staff and students, school officials said. “Look what change, what positive change can come with vision, with collaboration, with partnership and now with continuing momentum,” Stanton said in regards to the continuing partnership efforts made between the UA, the city of Phoenix and the board of regents. “[The Biosciences Partnership Building] will mean more lab space for the UA and give them even more tools to lead the way on neuroscience and cancer research and put an emphasis on health care outcomes,” Stanton said.

Additionally, Greg Byrne, athletic director and vice president for athletics, was offered a contract extension through 2019, with a proposed $25,000 raise each year of the contract. The board reviewed and discussed the annual operating budget for Arizona State University, NAU and the UA in 2015. Reports stated that the total revenues for the three universities are projected to be $4.4 billion in the fiscal year of 2015. This is an increase of $247 million from 2014.

The funding for the new building is already in place as part of the Stimulus Plan for Economic and Educational Development bonds approved by the legislature in 2008 that allowed the three Arizona universities to construct new buildings on their respective campuses, according to Judy Bernas, associate vice president of university relations. Hart referred to the financial circumstances as an investment by the taxpayers and said that the project is part of a vision for economic and job growth in the state. She said it would help create jobs that would keep college graduates in Arizona. “All of this important work will have a major effect on our state — bigger breakthroughs and better health outcomes for all Arizonans,” Hart said.

Tucson added 2,400 jobs to its economy in 2013, showing a 0.7 percent increase from the previous year, said economic analysts at the annual Breakfast with the Economists conference Wednesday morning. The annual breakfast is the Eller College of Management’s midyear economic update.

SDAY’S WEDNE LIST TO DO

The Daily Wildcat
Sharpie swiper sent to slammer
A non-UA affiliated man was placed under arrest for shoplifting at the UofA Bookstore. The man attempted to steal six Sharpie markers: two silver, two gold and two orange. The value of the markers was $11.76. A report by the University of Arizona Police Department states that an employee in charge of loss prevention watched the man on camera placing the markers in the pocket of his cargo shorts. The man told the responding officer that he did not have his wallet with him and did not want to ask his sister, who was also in the bookstore, for money. The officer placed the man under arrest and drove him to Pima County Jail.
'I know I'm an asshole'
Two UAPD police officers responded to a call about an intoxicated UA student outside of a bar on Fourth Avenue. The call was placed by a Tucson Police Department officer who had encountered the student for several weekends in a row. The TPD officer said that the student was regularly intoxicated, verbally aggressive and uncooperative with law enforcement. Prior to the arrival of the UAPD officers the student had been involved in several fights. The student was handcuffed and sat on the sidewalk. The student then said, “I know I’m an asshole.” The student told UAPD that he did not remember his encounters with the TPD officer. UAPD officers reported the incident to the Dean of Students Office.

Roomsurf: the new wave of meeting people BY ALLISON ALTERMAN Arizona Summer Wildcat
divide my university experience into two categories: college and school. School consists of going to class, doing homework and taking tests. College is being in clubs, hanging out with friends and (for me) living far away from home. So while classroom clickers and D2L improve the “school” experience at the UA, there’s one site that has dramatically altered my “college” experience: Roomsurf.com. When I chose to come to Tucson, I didn’t think I’d know a single person when school started. But because of Roomsurf, when I came for New Student Orientation midsummer, I knew several girls who I met with while I was in town. The UA told me to use the site in order to find a roommate, and since I wasn’t completely sold on the whole randomly-selected-possibly-homicidalperson-watching-me-sleep option, I made an account. In a day when roommate-seeking Craigslist ads seem a little sketchy (I mean they’re pretty darn anonymous) and online dating is the norm (relationship algorithms: hard to argue with math!), Roomsurf makes a lot of sense. For those who are unfamiliar, Roomsurf is a website which allows users to find compatible roommates. It logs users in through Facebook and users from the UA must also type in a housing key indicating that they will be living on campus during the upcoming year. A picture is automatically uploaded from the person’s Facebook, along with their age and gender. Students then write a self-description,

UA must commit to all cultures BY VINCE REDHOUSE
Arizona Summer Wildcat
he UA is at risk of failing to deliver upon one of the goals outlined in President Ann Weaver Hart’s “Never Settle” plan: our commitment to emphasize our diverse cultures and to make resources more accessible to all students. I am specifically concerned about our commitment to graduating Native American students. According to the latest statistics given by the UA, the percentage of Native American undergraduates graduating within six years is roughly 20 percent lower than the average rate among all students. However, we have made continual and significant progress in this direction. For example, in 1990, the rates were half of what they are today. The UA currently ranks 11 out of 12 schools in the Pac-12 for graduating its Native American students in six years or less. However, even if we continue to improve, it does not necessarily mean that we’re succeeding. Without increased efforts, this positive trend will not continue. There are several reasons to believe that graduation rates of our Native American students will either decline or stagnate going forward, and I will briefly cover two of the most obvious ones. First, there are almost 1,200 Native American students on campus and the resource center for them, Native American Student Affairs, has one fulltime employee — the program director — and one graduate student assistant. Steve Martin (no, not that Steve Martin) is the program director, and has a done a tremendous job at promoting the well-being of our Native American students, but he is only one person serving the needs of more than 1,000. Furthermore, given the lack of campus commitment to NASA, it’s

not clear how large of a role it can play in emphasizing the Native American culture on campus. Secondly, there is virtually no attempt by the Associated Students of the University of Arizona to incorporate the UA’s cultural centers. ASUA has access to massive amounts of funding and resources on campus, but it does not bode well for the vision outlined in the Never Settle plan if ASUA exists predominantly for white upper-class students. A partial concession is in order: There are few students within the cultural centers that want to become a part of ASUA because of its image of being a white upper-class clique. This image exists, deserved or not, and as such all parties must work to resolve it. At this point, one might wonder: Why should Native American students receive extra help? College is a difficult place for everyone to adjust. Native American students are not special in that regard, so why do they deserve extra attention? This mentality assumes that all struggles are the same, which is simply false. The difficulty of a typical American adjusting to college life is not the same as for a Native American. To understand why, consider that there are few places in America, outside of a reservation, where Native Americans can practice their culture without feeling alienated. On the
other hand, American culture is rather ubiquitous at the UA and its norms are easily recognizable to the typical American. Such an explanation does not even begin to cover the well-founded mistrust some Native Americans feel toward American institutions, nor does it take into account that the university system is a European construct that is culturally foreign to many minorities. Culture shock is a very real thing for many Native American students and it makes the transition to college much more difficult. The UA has made progress toward increasing the graduation rates of its Native American population, but for progress to continue, it needs to do more. I have mentioned a couple of reasons for believing that we are not doing enough to promote the continued academic success of our Native students. Other reasons exist, and their complexity is such that a column cannot do them justice. That being said, I urge our administration to ensure that its promise of supporting diverse cultures, inclusivity and student success takes into account the needs of our Native American students, lest the progress we have made is left to stagnate or, even worse, deteriorate.

Looking back at UA baseball BY EVAN ROSENFELD
Arizona Summer WIldcat
After suffering its worst season in 20 years, Arizona baseball is searching for ways to rebuild and recuperate its program. The Wildcats finished the year with a 22-33 record and were 10th in the Pac-12 standings.
What went right? Sophomore outfielder Zach Gibbons showed notable offensive improvement in his sophomore season. Gibbons started all but one game, was the only Wildcat to record a batting average above .300 in Pac-12 play (.327) and ranked second on the team with a .338 batting average over the 55-game season. As a result, Gibbons earned an honorable mention to the AllConference team. Sophomore shortstop Kevin Newman collected All-Conference honors for the second consecutive year and was second on the team in runs scored (39) and RBIs (34). He finished the year with a .304 batting average and committed only two errors in 55 starts this year, earning his spot on the 10man All-Defensive team. Sophomore outfielder Scott Kingery also received All-Conference honors after experiencing a breakout season, leading the Wildcats’ offense with a .354 batting average and 41 runs scored. Kingery ranked second in the Pac-12 with a .456 on-base percentage and was tied for the
conference lead with 19 stolen bases.
What went wrong? When asked what he felt went wrong this past season, Gibbons said that there was an absence of leadership, not only from the junior class, but from his sophomore class as well. “We had a lot of key guys in the sophomore class and we didn’t necessarily lead the team the way we should have," Gibbons said. "We really needed to teach the freshmen and lead by example, especially with Lopez’s absence. There was a lack of leadership on the players’ part and not necessarily on the coaches’ part.” Gibbons continued, saying that he talked to Kingery and Newman and they all agreed that before the next season begins, they will sit down last year’s freshmen and next year’s incoming class and explain to them what they plan on doing to make sure last season won’t repeat itself. “I don’t think the freshmen really understood what the program was about,” Gibbons said. “That’s not [Lopez’s] fault, that’s definitely our fault. Coach Lopez has shown us the way and even though he wasn’t there in the fall, we should have stepped up and shown the freshmen how we play baseball at Arizona.”
Lopez’s strategy recovery:
Head coach Andy Lopez said that the program’s top priority for the offseason is to scout the junior

Former Wildcat hockey head coach Sean Hogan had turned Arizona back into the postseason team it once was, but ultimately couldn’t refuse the offer received from another elite ACHA Division I program. On May 30, Hogan resigned from his position at the UA to take over as the next head coach of the Ohio Bobcat hockey team. He said the two main reasons for leaving Arizona were to be closer to his family in Michigan and the opportunity to coach at a university with an ice rink on campus. Hogan said it was still tough to leave Tucson because of the relationships he developed at the UA. “The staff, everybody who works at the Campus Rec, all the players on the team, all the fans,” Hogan said. “[It will be] the people that I’ll miss the most for sure.” Hogan noted the people he worked with at the Student Recreation Center knew that he was in talks with other schools for a hockey head-coaching job. However, his players learned the news via email a day before his resignation was announced on the

Regents approve new contracts BY roberto payne
Arizona Summer WIldcat
n one vital stroke, Arizona athletic director Greg Byrne, men’s basketball head coach Sean Miller and football head coach Rich Rodriguez have received creative long-term extensions to stay at the UA. The Arizona Board of Regents ruled Friday to approve the extensions that will keep the trio in Tucson through the 2018-19 school year. Any queries over whether the trio (and Miller especially) will stay should be immediately put to rest once the raises and bonuses are inspected. It’s safe to say that no other athletic department in the country has built contracts like these before. Miller, who was already signed through 2017-18, adds an extra year to his current deal and will have $100,000 added on to his base $1.5 million salary in that final year. Rodriguez, who was already signed through 2016-17, adds two years to his current deal and will see his base salary increased from $1,330,000 to $1,500,000 in 2014 with an annual increase of $100,000 each year from 2014-2019. Byrne, who was already signed through 2017-18, adds an extra year to his current deal and will see his base salary increased from $500,000 to $625,000 in 2014 with an annual increase of $25,000 each year from 2014-2019. While the monetary numbers are substantial, they aren’t even the most eye-popping aspect of these deals. An unnamed UA donor has decided to employ a unique method to ensure retention of the trio. The donor will donate 500,000 units of stock to the athletic department that will in turn be divided between Byrne, Miller and Rodriguez. Of the 500,000 units of the stock, 50,000 units are allocated for the athletic department’s use and the remaining 450,000 will be divided between the
aforementioned trio. Each unit is reportedly valued at $35.36 and the total value of the donation is $17,680,000. If still employed at Arizona through 2022, Miller and Rodriguez will each receive 175,000 units and Byrne will receive 100,000 units. That means staying at Arizona would give each Miller and Rodriguez nearly $6.2 million in stock and Byrne would get just over $3.5 million in stock. Each could then cash in that stock and receive that money. Feel free to pick up your jaw from the floor anytime now. I’ll give you some time to do that. Now that your jaw is back in place, think about how these deals could change the landscape of contract negotiations for college coaches. I have no doubts that coaches across the nation will have their agents looking for similar deals. If I were Oregon men’s basketball coach Dana Altman, I’d be on the phone with my agent trying to get some kind of piece of Nike. For better or for worse, this unnamed donor has changed a huge aspect of collegiate athletics. The more local impact of the deal is that two of Arizona’s prominent athletic programs (men’s basketball and football) should see much needed stability from the head coaching positions. It wasn’t too long ago that each program saw head coaches come and go much quicker than is comfortable. Barring unforeseen circumstances, those days should be gone for the remainder of the decade. These deals also highlight the dedication to excellence from the athletic department and ensure Arizona athletics will be at the forefront of collegiate athletics for years to come. If Arizona fans weren’t excited before, they should feel free to freak out now. — Follow Roberto Payne @HouseofPayne555

Former hockey head coach Sean Hogan resigned on May 30 and accepted the headcoaching position at Ohio University. Hogan went 17-24 in his final season with the Wildcats.
Wildcat hockey website. Junior Shane Gleason, team captain, said Hogan tried calling him a few days before he told the rest of the team. However, Gleason was in Germany for an internship and couldn’t take the call at the time, so he found out through the email as well. “I think there’s one or two people he may have let know a couple days before it was going to happen,” Gleason said. “I was really shocked and sad to see him go, but he’s got a good opportunity in Ohio and I’m sure he’ll do great there.” Gleason also added he doesn’t feel betrayed by Hogan and that he feels his intentions were always good. Hogan and the rest of the
Wildcats selected Gleason as their captain in early April. “He was still recruiting and doing everyday activities that the [head] coach would have been doing,” Gleason said, “and I think at the end of the day he got an offer he couldn’t refuse, so I feel more shellshocked than betrayed.” Still, some of Hogan’s former players at Arizona were disappointed in their head coach leaving. Freshman forward Alex O’Dea said some of the players on the team were unhappy with how late they were relayed the news. “I think some of us do [feel betrayed] a little bit just because it did come out of absolutely nowhere for all the guys,” O’Dea said. “But Ohio is a good program and I definitely wish him the best of luck out there.” Hogan became the second-ever
head coach of Arizona hockey in 2011, when he took over for Leo Golembiewski during the “Icecats” transition. Hogan said that whoever takes over Arizona next year will inherit the 2014 recruits who have already committed to the program, and that he doesn’t expect any of them to walk away. “The schedule was done, recruiting was done and I’ve talked to the recruits,” Hogan said. “Arizona’s set up for success for sure; I didn’t want to leave them in a lurch or anything.” The Wildcats will open up the 201415 campaign on Sept. 27 at NAU.

Film more than love and death BY ALEX GUYTON
Arizona Summer Wildcat
azel Grace Lancaster (Shailene Woodley) is a sixteen-year-old who’s not too thrilled that her parents are making her attend cancer support group. Due to the cancer in her lungs, Hazel rolls a portable oxygen tank around like a little backpack, tubes running around her head and into her nostrils to give her the basic ability to breathe. Begrudgingly giving in to her parents’ request, Hazel goes to the meetings. There, she (literally) runs into Augustus Waters (Ansel Elgort), or Gus, a young man who sticks unlit cigarettes in his mouth as a tangible metaphor and whose cancer is in remission after losing the lower half of his right leg. Augustus has come to support his friend, Isaac (Nat Wolff), who is losing his eyesight to cancer. There’s something particularly disturbing about seeing vibrant teenagers having to suffer so horribly. Hazel and Augustus develop a deep friendship that becomes an intimate relationship. This teen romance film, like its leading couple, has maturity beyond its years due to its dire circumstances. That’s not to say all of the youthful trappings are missing. Hazel constantly checks her phone after she
hangs out with Gus for the first time, anxious for a notification that their time was special. The sheer pleasure and goofiness of getting to know someone that clicks with you lights up on the young leads’ smiling faces. This plays out alongside the everyday presence of death. They wrestle with the permanence of death, the fleeting nature of life and what they’ll leave behind once they’re gone. Of particular gravity is when Hazel confronts her mother (Laura Dern) and her father (Sam Trammell) about what will happen to them once she inevitably succumbs. These two unique characters wouldn’t be much of anything if it weren’t for Woodley and Elgort infusing the doomed couple with a remarkable amount of humanity, humor and raw emotion. Woodley has established herself as a part of the vanguard of fearless young actresses not concerned with prim and proper Hollywood norms, playing Hazel with no makeup and a dramatic haircut. Elgort proves to be a revelation, storming out of the gates with his second on-screen appearance. While on a trip to Amsterdam, Gus and Hazel visit the Anne Frank House, a converted museum. Determined not to be defeated by her illness, Hazel climbs the steep stairs inside, step by step. We are close-up on Hazel as her heavy breathing intensifies, causing her

to slump against the wall. The music rises and falls, and, in a transcendent move by director Josh Boone, the voice of Anne Frank, coming from the exhibits, plays over the struggle, narrating messages of fighting on in the face of adversity. Sensationally, it is overwhelming. The film stays true to its source material, but that is not a good barometer of the quality of a film. However, there does seem to be a reverence to the novel that helped the film. John Green, in a rare occurrence for an author, was on set nearly every day, able to provide the cast with the knowledge and intuition of his own book. I harbor some minor gripes. The film can be slightly uneven at times, and had an awkwardly situated and criminally underused Willem Dafoe. “Okay” is Hazel’s and Gus’ promise, an ironic declaration of insurmountable love that the two star-crossed teens make to each other. Though their love may be fleeting due to the brevity of their time left, this is a film that deals with elemental fears and questions, all via the hope that is youth.

Weekly festival full of food and fun BY PATRICK O'CONNOR
Arizona Summer Wildcat
The corner of Fourth Avenue and Fourth Street will transform into a festival spotlighting local Tucson food, products and art starting Friday. Fourth Avenue Food Fest is a weekly event that will combine your favorite flavors from local farmers’ markets on a more high-energy canvas. The event is a collaboration between CakeLab, a Fourth Avenue bakery, and FoodInRoot, a Tucson nonprofit that organizes many of the local farmers’ markets. “The festival will be concert-esque and have a more lively atmosphere than a farmers’ market,” said Clayton Kammerer, founder of FoodInRoot. Each week, different local bands will take the stage in front of CakeLab and provide visitors with live entertainment. Kammerer chose each band because they have all played at bars and clubs around Fourth Avenue. “We’ve done markets in town for a long time,” said George Wyckoff of Grammy’s Garden, a local produce company that has been at Tucson’s farmers’ markets for twelve years. “CakeLab originally proposed the idea [for a market downtown] … so I thought [it] sounds like a great idea.” CakeLab and FoodInRoot have not

disappointed in getting a large variety of food vendors to participate. Grammy’s Garden is selling produce from its 40-acre property in Cochise, Ariz., along with jams, jellies and other canned goods from its commercial kitchen. Gloria Badilla of Chilittepica Salsa is
providing the market with delectable salsas. Chilittepica Salsa is made with all local Tucson ingredients and can also be found for sale at other local businesses such as Food Conspiracy Co-op on Fourth Avenue. Other Fourth Avenue staples, like Revolutionary Grounds Books and Coffee, will also be participating in the festival.
The Food Fest is also spotlighting other vendors who make a different kind of food. “We realize that people like scents when it comes to body care products, but our main purpose is the benefits to the skin,” said Leighton Jeffy of Sapient Soap and Sundries. “It’s quite literally food for the skin. All of the fruits and the herbs we use in our soaps have very particular benefits to the skin.” Sapient Soap and Sundries’ line of soaps, body butters and lotions are all based on homemade recipes that use local ingredients as opposed to artificial scents. Jeffy and Betsy Mahaffey make all of their products in their Tucson home. They extract scents and beneficial compounds from more than fifty herbs and flowers. Some of Sapient Soap’s most popular products, like Alighieri’s Apple Soap and their Vanilla Body Butter, will be available for sale at the festival. “Summer is a great time to start events because of the slower rhythm in Tucson,” Kammerer said. “It’s a great time to get the kinks worked out and grow that momentum so it’s in full swing when the students return.” Fourth Avenue Food Fest will be from 4-8 p.m. and will continue every Friday.

Gavin DeGraw concert comes to Tucson Friday BY CHRISTIANNA SILVA
Arizona Summer Wildcat
All the frights of Friday the 13th are set aside as Gavin DeGraw and Matt Nathanson take the stage at AVA Amphitheater. At 7:30 p.m. concert-goers will be warmed up by Christian Burghardt, a 25-year-old singer-songwriter whose indie-pop style will likely be met with enthusiasm to fans of DeGraw and Nathanson. According to his Facebook page, he sings and records his own original songs. Gavin DeGraw hit the music scene running when his song “I Don’t
Wanna Be” became the music for the title sequence of “One Tree Hill.” He continued to further his music career, and after DeGraw’s single “Sweeter,” he and his collection of fedoras have been under the spotlight. He hasn’t skipped a beat, and quickly followed up his hit single with “Best I Ever Had,” which reached its height at just under 3.5 million YouTube views. He will be performing pieces taken from some of his older albums as well as selections off of his new album, Make A Move. DeGraw announced on his website that he is more than pleased with his new album, and said that it is the strongest record he
has made. According to his website, DeGraw has toured with Maroon 5, Train and Colbie Caillat — an obvious choice after their many collaborations. Matt Nathanson is an aficionado of more than just the care and keeping of his curly locks that have women swooning at his performances. He is the wellrenowned singer-songwriter of “Come On Get Higher,” a song that has sold more than 2 million records, and Nathanson’s album Modern Love hit 17 on the Billboard Top 200 Albums Chart. His new album, Last of the Great Pretenders, is his most relatable.

“Even non-fans should be able to find themselves hitting the rewind button a time or two,” Eric Luecking wrote in American Songwriter. Pop Matters complements Nathanson’s new album and continues to call this album more than simply poetic.
Tickets range from $25 for lawn seating to $65 for an elite and platinum concert experience.
