FIJI under suspension after death



Fourth Avenue and Congress Street, has drawn hundreds of UA students downtown. The UA put out a request for proposal for student housing being built downtown, which offered the distinction of being a UA affiliated property, said Dana RobbinsMurray, assistant director of marketing for Residence Life. “At the time the university was in need of additional student housing,” RobbinsMurray said. “Because of the revitalization downtown and some of the university colleges being down there, they thought it would be a good support of the downtown revitalization.” The RfP gives The Cadence, which opened in August 2013, the status of being a UA affiliated property, Robbins-Murray said, and it is the only off-campus housing property that maintains that distinction.

UA officials have placed Phi Gamma Delta fraternity under interim suspension as it stands accused of multiple violations of the Arizona Board of Regents Student Code of Conduct, including hazing and serving alcohol to minors. The University of Arizona Police Department submitted a complaint that triggered an investigation from the Dean of Students Office based on information it had uncovered about Phi Gamma Delta, commonly known as FIJI, during its investigation of the death of Michael Anderson, 19, a pre-business freshman and one of its members, according to a letter sent to the chapter’s president from Christina Lieberman, associate dean of students. UAPD has passed on the findings of its investigation to the Pima County Attorney’s Office in a continuation of the criminal investigation of Anderson’s death, said Kendal Washington White, associate vice president of student affairs and dean of students. Anderson fell to his death on the roof of Colonia de la Paz residence hall in the early morning hours of April 4 after he and a friend tried climbing a 20-foot ventilation structure atop the residence hall. An autopsy revealed Anderson had a blood alcohol content of 0.19 at the time of his death. The letter said that FIJI poses “a substantial risk to members of the university community” and is therefore placed under interim suspension of recognition. Pending the outcome of the investigation, FIJI must cease all activity on the UA campus, UA officials said in a statement. This includes chapter meetings, organizational events and recruitment of new members. White said interim suspension of recognition is a rare measure for the DOS to take, but the administration believes the

When Ezekiel Canett was growing up, his grandmother would tell him of her romance with downtown Tucson when she was younger. She loved the vibrant culture and spoke of how she used to go dancing there. She swore it was the parking meters that ultimately drove business from downtown. Whatever the reason behind the decline of downtown Tucson decades ago, people are coming back now, and Canett, who has worked at various stores and restaurants in the downtown area for the past eight years, has watched its revitalization firsthand. “People had a long list of complaints about how [downtown] had been going downhill,” Canett said. “There weren’t any real projects going on to bring life back

into it.” In recent years however, downtown Tucson has seen several new businesses — bars, restaurants and now a streetcar — coming to the area and adding new energy. The UA and its students have played a significant role, said Steve Kozachik, city councilman for Ward 6, which includes downtown Tucson. The UA has established an official presence in the area. UA Downtown, which houses programs for the College of Architecture, Planning and Landscape Architecture and the College of Social and Behavioral Sciences, was opened in 2011 on the corner of Stone Avenue and Pennington Street and has plans to continue adding UA programs inside the building.

side effects,” Kiernan said. “I didn’t feel like a zombie, I didn’t feel sick, I didn’t feel medicated and unresponsive. It was something I could take in the morning … and I could survive.” Kiernan said he is disappointed with the UA’s decision to fire Sisley. In a study conducted between 2007 and 2012, the Department of Veterans Affairs estimated that 22 veterans commit suicide each day. Kiernan believes that this suicide rate is related to symptoms of PTSD and some could be prevented by the use of medical marijuana. The dismissal of Sisley sends a clear message to veterans that their health is not the priority of the UA, he said. “It’s infuriating, as a soldier who’s seen people die, and seen my friends die, to see them die even today, long after they’ve left the military, because their mental wounds … aren’t being addressed,” Kiernan said. Sisley said she has had correspondences with medical researchers who work internationally and are shocked at the opposition she has faced from the UA administration and some Arizona legislators. Medical marijuana studies on PTSD have been conducted in numerous countries and is already recognized as a valid treatment internationally in places like Israel, she said. Both Sisley and Kiernan believe that part of the controversy surrounding Sisley’s study is the use of whole-plant marijuana. Drug manufacturers want to be able to

Camp encourages girls in STEM careers BY Meredith Morrissey Arizona Summer Wildcat

The UA College of Engineering partnered with the Girl Scouts of Southern Arizona to hold a summer engineering camp for girls last week. The camp, Imagine IT, was aimed to get girls interested in science, technology, engineering and math disciplines, which are fields typically dominated by men. Women account for about 18.4 percent of engineering bachelor’s degrees with the trend moving upwards, according to a 2011 study from the American Society for Engineering Education. “Girls get a lot of messaging from older generations, media and sometimes even their teachers about how math and science are only for boys,” said Ted Gatchell, coordinator of recruitment, retention and outreach at the College of Engineering. “When we do encourage girls in the STEM fields, it is often in a way that doesn’t necessarily appeal to how young women think.” The camp curriculum was designed around search and rescue scenarios and focused on a cooperative, rather than competitive, approach to appeal to the girls. “I think girls are drawn to fields that help people,” said Michelle Higgins, senior director of STEM and education relations for Girl Scouts of Southern Arizona. “We want to show them how technology makes that possible.” Activities included designing packs for search and rescue animals, building

The girls were told to design their robots to rescue people in a disaster scenario such as a hurricane, volcanic eruption, earthquake, forest fire or flood. The girls built their robots using everyday household items including

Intel Corporation covered the program costs for the camp and the American Association of University Women provided scholarships to 10 girls. Guest speakers at the camp were Tucson Fire Captain Diane Benson, who spoke with the girls about the crucial role technology plays in her field, and Tucson Mayor Jonathan Rothschild, who encouraged the girls to consider STEM careers. The girls asked Rothschild questions on a wide range of subjects from STEM opportunities in Tucson to the mayor’s plans for protecting the city against gun violence. Gatchell said he hopes the camp will instill confidence in the girls and encourage them to consider careers in STEM areas. “Getting girls involved in STEM is vital for our future,” Gatchell said. “These girls represent the next generation of leaders and the most we can do for them is give them the confidence to face challenges head-on and overcome them.” Gatchell said he also predicts the partnership with the Girl Scouts will continue. “This camp was a great success,” he said. “I am confident we can continue to develop it into something even better.” — Follow Meredith Morrissey @Meredith_Mo

The Great Escape

A supervisor at the UA farm reported strange happenings in the pasture to University of Arizona Police Department on July 9. Responding officers were told by the supervisor that three bags of sheep feed had gone missing in the night. Additionally, a herd of lambs had been found by a student outside of their pen, making a mess of a nearby equipment storage area. The supervisor said she was sure a human had released the lambs because baby sheep could not operate the latch to their pen. She was also sure the lambs had not devoured the missing feed, as there were no empty bags to be found. The lambs were safely gathered back into their pen. The farm supervisor also informed officers that a herd of cows, secured in their pen with a combination lock, had been found wandering outside their designated area. Unlike the lambs, the cows did not cause any sort of mess or property damage. The supervisor said all the animals were accounted for, but requested UAPD perform frequent night checks in order to prevent further disturbance of the animals.

Mushroom Misconduct

UAPD officers responded to a report of an alleged trespasser at Campbell Farms property on July 9. Upon arrival the officers met a farm employee standing with a non-UA affiliated man. The man, a self-described “mushroom hunter,” had been caught on the property without permission. When he was confronted by the farm employee, the man attempted to flee by climbing over one of the fences. The employee told the man that police were on their way, and the man agreed to stay until officers arrived. A responding officer asked the man if he felt that the fence indicated at all that the farm was private property. The man hung his head and nodded yes. Officers cited the man for criminal trespassing and told the man that if he wanted to collect wild mushrooms on the property, he needed proper authorization from the property owners. The man said he understood and left without further incident.

STUDENTS FILE INTO THE Phi Gamma Delta house for former member Michael Anderson's memorial service on April 9. FIJI has been placed under interim suspension following allegations uncovered during a University of Arizona Police Department investigation into Anderson's death.



allegations are serious enough to merit the suspension during the investigation. “We did not want the organization to be able to conduct business as usual, particularly bringing in new members,” White said. Members of FIJI have due process just like anyone else, White said, and have the right to respond to the charges as an organization. A decision on FIJI’s recognition will most likely be made before the beginning of the fall semester, White said. The letter details some of the hazing FIJI members allegedly took part in, including kicking new members in the stomach, forcing new members to clean the house before and after parties and performing personal acts of servitude to members. The chapter president also allegedly instructed members not to cooperate with UAPD or UA officials, White said. FIJI reportedly hosted several unregistered events in the spring 2014 semester where alcohol was served to minors, violating the Student Code of

Conduct and leading them to be placed on probation, White said. Under the terms of their probation, alcohol was prohibited in the house, but events with alcohol were still held in FIJI, White said, violating their probation. UAPD also alleged marijuana was smoked inside the FIJI house. FIJI’s national organization is aware of the allegations and is cooperating with the DOS investigation, the statement read. FIJI has faced sanctions since 2011 for code of conduct and other policy violations related to alcohol use, destruction of property, endangering and recruitment violations, among other things. “The vast majority of our greek organizations abide by and live up to the community standards that we have for individual and organizations on campus,” White said. While there are always organizations on campus that will choose not to live up to those standards, White said she does not see the actions of FIJI as a reflection on greek life on campus.

Craving cheap, healthy food on UA campus BY ALLISON ALTERMAN

Arizona Summer Wildcat


ver 6,600 undergraduate students live in residence halls on campus each year, and many more live within close proximity to the UA. Of these students, a great many commute to class by foot, bicycle or public transportation. For them, access to healthy, affordable food without a car is limited at best. The university prides itself on its “alternative” meal plan, which differs from most schools’ single cafeteria option. Spread across campus are various restaurants, fast-food hubs and U-Marts where students can buy food with or without a prepaid meal plan. There are several meal plans to choose from, with the “three meals a day” option costing $3,500. The benefits students get from signing up for prepaid meal plans are a five percent savings on purchases and a waiving of the Arizona sales tax. Although often crowded, on-campus

he polarization of politics and the resulting policies, at all levels of government, is the direct result of citizens choosing to not vote. For this reason, mandatory voting laws are needed to end the bickering of uncompromising politicians. Elected officials no longer speak to the needs, or perspectives, of many Americans. Instead, they only seek to charm the favor of the most extreme members of their party in order to win. As a result, moderate citizens who still voice their opinions at the polls are left having no choice but to vote for the lesser of two evils on the ballot, while non-voters feel that their vote wouldn’t matter. The unfortunate truth is that their vote really doesn’t matter, because so many other people have the same attitude. It creates a cycle that causes the political landscape to become more polarized and therefore more discouraging and toxic, which results

public discouraged with the entire process. Nationally, this dysfunction can be seen in the government shut down last year and the continued stalling of efforts to solve major issues in Washington, such as the current immigration debate. On a more local level was the controversy over the passing of Senate Bill 1062, which was seen as an anti-LGBT bill, subsequently vetoed by Gov. Jan Brewer. Obviously with any law there needs to be some type of punishment to ensure its intended purpose has an effect. While failing to vote shouldn’t land a person in prison, there should be a substantial fine levied against those who don’t meet their obligation, with an increase in the fine for multiple offenses, which could be assessed during income taxes. Requiring all citizens to vote would cause more moderate and less partisan voters to cast their ballots. Politicians will likely become more moderate as a result, and would bring more bipartisan cooperation to politics. This should be welcomed by all politicians who are confident in the policies they champion as truly being in the best interest of everyone. — Jorge Encinas is a junior studying journalism.

particularly enjoyable task. Forget about lunch meats or dairy surviving the trip. I now commute to the grocery store on my bicycle. I load as much food into my backpack as will fit, strap some of it onto my bike rack and carry the remainder in grocery bags around my wrists. Each time I shop, I find the urge to assure concerned onlookers, “I’ve done this before.” Even though I am a competitive cyclist and would consider my bike handling to be at a much higher proficiency than the average commuter, the task of bringing a week’s worth of food home in this way is never an easy feat. Food is a necessity, not a luxury, and students should demand good, affordable options on campus. As fast-food restaurants are in the union to stay, thanks to contracts, it seems that the most promising solution lies in campus-run hot lines and salad bars. If vegetables could be steamed instead of cooked in butter and salad bars could be kept fresh and less costly, huge gains could be made. With its monopoly, it is hard to imagine U-Mart prices becoming reasonable. However the addition of less-costly, healthier bread options, sugar-reduced peanut butter and more fruits and vegetables would go a far way in improving dorm life for many students. If accessibility to grocery stores is the driving force behind the need for some students to have cars, this is an obvious problem on our campus that must be addressed.

Homeless puggles need love, too BY MIA MORAN

Arizona Summer Wildcat

For many, a trip to a dog rescue or shelter is more than an excuse to look at the cute animals up for adoption – it’s a chance to add another member to the family. Giving dogs a second chance is the mission of the Arizona Puggle Rescue, according to Vicky Tantlinger, the rescue’s president. Founded in January, the Arizona Puggle Rescue specializes in finding homes for puggles from local shelters and owner surrenders. “Our mission is to rescue puggles and provide healthcare, training, shelter and food while we search for a loving, forever home for the displaced dogs,” Tantlinger said. “It is our goal to help alleviate the overcrowding in the shelters – to provide options to pet owners other than ditching the dog in the desert, dumping it on Interstate 10 or offering up as dog fight bait on Craigslist.” Puggles, a hybrid breed of both a pug and a beagle, are the center of the organization. Although the Arizona Puggle Rescue is based out of Tucson, it is the only puggle rescue in Arizona and services the entire state, Tantlinger said. Unlike a dog from a breeder or expensive pet store, breedspecific rescues such as the Arizona Puggle Rescue provide an opportunity for a person looking for a specific breed to purchase one from a humane and healthy environment. “When adopting a pet from a shelter or rescue you know what you are getting,” Tantlinger said. “All of the animals have been looked over by a vet, they are up to date on all of their vaccines and they have been spayed or neutered.” The Arizona Puggle Rescue spends at least 30 days with each dog to see how they interact with other dogs, animals and children so potential owners know about any quirks or behavioral issues, Tantlinger said. “[Puggles] are social dogs and generally get along well with all people, other dogs and cats,” Tantlinger said. JESSICA SCHRECKER/ARIZONA SUMMER WILDCAT “Since they are so loving and gentle they make amazing GUS, A PUGGLE, plays with Vicky Tantlinger, president of the Arizona Puggle Rescue, at Crossroads Park on Monday.

such a performance if it wasn’t for the mindblowing CG work. Multiple times throughout this movie I questioned, knowing full well that the answer was “no,” whether they were using animals. It is simply photorealistic. Not only is this film a vast improvement on its predecessor (which was a nice cut above your standard Hollywood blockbuster fare, but nothing phenomenal), all other summer films this year are playing checkers while this one’s playing chess. Let’s just hope the apes don’t beat us at that anytime soon.

Victoria’s Secret is that she loves to party, and almost exclusively at Club Congress. On Saturday at 9 p.m., Club Congress is hosting the third annual Underwear Party — one claiming to knock your socks (and pants) right off. Club Congress is expecting plenty of people in underwear-only outfits this weekend. According to its website, 1,200 people of all shapes and sizes showed up last summer to cast their clothes off and party. Thankfully, they have a free clothing check so walking to the club in your bare necessities is a personal choice instead of an obligation. If hundreds of sweaty bodies rumbling together amidst minimal clothing in an ancient Rome-themed party doesn’t convince you to go underwear shopping before Saturday, Club Congress has quite the line up of other activities. The $5 entrance fee pays for live performances by B4Skin, an ancient Roman photo both with a professional photographer, the human terrarium and indoor and outdoor dance floors complete with multiple disk jockeys — Satyr Entertainment, Bob Felix, Sid The Kid and Jalph. B4Skin is an electric pop group from Arizona. According to Adrienne Lake of the Arizona Daily Star, it is a good oldfashioned Satan worshiper group who, “I don’t know, say, sold their souls in exchange for quick success.” As far as

Arizona Summer Wildcat • 15

Former UA athletes become engaged BY ROBERTO PAYNE

Arizona Summer Wildcat

Former Arizona football defensive end Ricky Elmore became engaged to former Arizona softball catcher Callista Balko at Hillenbrand Stadium on Friday. Balko, a member of the 2006 and 2007 NCAA champion Arizona softball teams, played four years of softball at Arizona and is among the program leaders in career fielding percentage, and her 2,173 putouts are the most in program history. Elmore, who was drafted 197th overall by the Green Bay Packers in the 2011 NFL Draft, said he planned his creative proposal well in advance and hoped Balko wouldn’t find out beforehand. “She told me, ‘After seven and a half years, I can’t wait to see what you do to ask me to marry you,’” Elmore said. The lead up to the proposal had Balko stop at four different locations: McKale Center's



computer lab, the visitor locker room at Arizona Stadium, Frog & Firkin and finally Hillenbrand Stadium. Each spot held significance for their relationship. Elmore proposed to Balko at the spot he first saw her at Hillenbrand Stadium. Balko was warming up in the home bullpen when he first laid eyes on her. “As soon as I walked in [to the stadium], she was warming up in the bullpen,” Elmore said. He added that he almost didn’t go to the softball game but was persuaded by a friend to go. “He was like, ‘Come on bro, I’ll take you to dinner,’” Elmore said. Balko, now the director of regional development for Arizona Athletics, and Elmore met in December of their freshman year right before winter break.

to Belgium in the Round of 16, a nation stood behind the team as Howard put on a goalkeeping performance for the ages. His 16 saves set a World Cup record for the most saves in a single game. For the first time since the U.S. women’s national team advanced to the 2011 FIFA Women’s World Cup finals, the entire nation truly cared for soccer. I won’t act like the biggest soccer fan, but I thoroughly appreciate watching quality club and international soccer. Where I previously drew the line on acceptable soccer viewing was Major League Soccer, which happens to be the premier soccer league in the U.S. The MLS has never had the grandeur or draw of seeing the world’s best perform night in and night out. However, after watching several MLS stars perform admirably for the USMNT, I can confidently say I underestimated the league. It’s time for casual soccer fans to embrace the game and treat it with much more importance than the nation currently does. Soccer is the most popular sport in the world and should hold more weight in the U.S. Therefore, I challenge all you casual soccer fans who cheered enthusiastically for the USMNT over the past month. Support these players as they return to club action and maybe even tune in the next time an MLS game is broadcast on ESPN. Who knows, you may like what you see. — Follow Roberto Payne @HouseofPayne555

Amato talks USA, UA soccer BY JAMES KELLEY

Arizona Summer Wildcat

The 2014 FIFA World Cup may be over, but soccer addicts and recent converts need not fret: The 2014 Arizona soccer season is right around the corner. Arizona soccer head coach Tony Amato recently returned from a trip to Brazil for the 2014 World Cup. Amato said he went to Argentina’s 2-1 win over Bosnia-Herzegovina, Chile’s 2-0 win over Spain and Belgium’s 1-0 win over Russia. Amato led Arizona to its first winning season since 2005 and the Wildcats’ best start since 1994 in his first season as UA’s head coach in 2013. Amato talked to the Arizona Summer Wildcat about the atmosphere in Brazil, Team USA’s chances in the 2015 Women’s World Cup and whether former Wildcats Ana Montoya and Jazmin Ponce could play in the World Cup next year. Arizona Summer Wildcat: What was the trip to Brazil like? Amato: Honestly, it was unbelievable. If you haven’t experienced a world event like that, it’s something you should do. It’s just a bunch of cultures coming together. It’s kind of madness, and there are people everywhere, but it really is a celebration of people who love the game. We went to three games. I went to the last World Cup, I went to this World Cup and there is just no way in the future I could sit at home knowing what it’s like to be there, even if it is just for the first few days. There has been a lot of talk about the USA fans in Brazil. What kind of presence do you think the US will have in the World Cup next year in Canada? That’s the Women’s World Cup, in Canada, so I think our team, our women’s team, always does so well, so you would think that a lot of this can carry over, even more into supporting that World Cup. I think we will see a good turn out, good support and our team should do well. What do you think USA’s chances are to win it


It's time to embrace soccer BY ROBERTO PAYNE

UA SOCCER HEAD COACH Tony Amato poses for a photo while visting Brazil for the 2014 FIFA World Cup. Amato attended three games at the World Cup, including Chile's 2-0 victory over Spain on June 18.

all next year? Well, they’re going to be one of the favorites. They’ll be one of the top two or three teams in the tournament. Last time they lost in penalties in the final to Japan, but they’ll be one of the favorites and you just hope that a few things fall their way and they come together as a team and get a bit of luck and are able to win it. Do you think you might see a little rise in attendance at UA games? Well, World Cup aside, we would expect a little rise, just from the fact that we’re getting some momentum with the team since we’ve been here. We’ve been reaching out to the community. We’ve had a little more success last year than in previous years and you would think it would increase a little bit and we want to keep growing on that. Add the World Cup fever into it, and I think we’ll be able to tie into that and keep growing in attendance and support of what we’re doing, but ultimately it

comes down to how we do on the field. After Ana Montoya played in the Olympics and Jazmin Ponce played for Mexico, what are the chances that we might see a former Wildcat play in the World Cup next year? For next year, I know that Ana just got connected back with the Colombian national team. She was talking about committing to getting in shape for that, so I think that’s a good possibility. Obviously Jaz with Mexico always has a shot. Mexico is one of the better teams and she is just out of camp. I haven’t talked to her yet, but I think if that went well then the chances of her playing in the World Cup are very likely. Hopefully we’ll have someone in that and that would be a great thing for the program.

he 2014 FIFA World Cup officially ended on Sunday with Germany topping Argentina by a 1-0 score in extra time, capping an exciting month where soccer was the what-to-watch television. Analysts from ESPN to Fox Sports to Sports Illustrated debated over whether this was the most exciting World Cup ever. 171 goals were scored throughout the tournament, including several high-scoring games like Germany’s 7-1 victory over host nation Brazil in the semifinals. Unheralded teams like Costa Rica and Greece advanced to the knockout stages, while powerhouses like Spain and Portugal couldn’t advance out of group play. It was all very exciting and definitely must-watch TV, but I couldn’t help feeling like all this soccer enthusiasm in the U.S. would be gone as soon as the tournament was over. One thing is clear: It’s time for the United States to embrace soccer more than every four years. Casual American fans supported the U.S. men’s national team as Tim Howard and Clint Dempsey led the team through the so-called “Group of Death” and into the knockout stages. While the team lost 2-1 in extra time
