New year, new convocation BY JOCELYN VALENCIA The Daily Wildcat

For the first time in UA history, the New Student Convocation was held outdoors on the UA Mall on Sunday . In previous years, the ceremony was held in McKale Center, but because that site was unavailable due to its current renovations, the university had the opportunity to try something different. “Normally, we use McKale and have

a more academic ceremony with the deans,” said Kasey Urquidez , associate vice president for Student Affairs and the dean of undergraduate admissions. “This year the deans were more in favor of us trying something new, too, just to make it a little more festive with the traditions, and … that excitement about starting classes the next day, so we did it on the

A new recruitment process to pledge for a fraternity at the UA was introduced in this fall. According to Adam Geyer, president of the Interfraternity Council at the UA, the process was altered to give potential new members, or PNMs, the chance to see every fraternity on campus and to help all 17 chapters achieve their class size goals. “We kind of formalized a process so that throughout the week, every PNM visits each fraternity, and as the week goes on, they mutually select each other,” Geyer said. “So by the end of the week they have a good idea of which fraternity is a good fit for them.” With 900 PNMs this fall, the new rushing process was designed to make sure that every PNM was able to see every fraternity chapter on campus. In previous years, the process was more informal, Geyer said. Previously, the process took place after fall classes began. Chapters would host events throughout the week, and PNMs were able to decide which events they wanted to attend. This ultimately led to an uneven

The Sun Link Tucson Modern Streetcar, known as the Sun Link, is offering free 30-day passes to UA students and faculty from Aug. 15 to Sept. 14 through a partnership between the university and the Sun Link . The Sun Link is a streetcar that runs on electricity from Warren and Helen, through the UA and down through Mercado, connecting the UA community to the local community. It’s a four-mile track with a streetcar at each stop at 10-30 minute intervals. The free pass is beneficial to students living off campus. Meghan Witteman, a philosophy, politics, economics and law sophomore, said this is her first year living off campus. She is ecstatic that she doesn’t have to either pay for a parking pass or walk in the Tucson heat to her classes. She said she can’t wait to try out the streetcar for a free month and that she was planning on paying for the Sun Link anyway. “It’s a wonderful idea,” Witteman said. “I think if everyone tries it for a month, they could discover that they really like it and it could decrease U of A’s carbon footprint. It stops pretty often too, so it’s super convenient.” Not all students at the university are as excited as Witteman.

Summer recap: Marijuana study, campus tobacco up in smoke BY ETHAN MCSWEENEY The Daily Wildcat

While many students went home or abroad over the summer, the Daily Wildcat continued covering the UA campus and the local community through the heat and the monsoons as the Arizona Summer Wildcat. Here are some of the stories you may have missed:

FIJI kicked off campus

Phi Gamma Delta fraternity, commonly known as FIJI, lost recognition this month from the UA following an investigation into the death of one its members in April. FIJI had been on interim suspension since July as the Dean of Students Office investigated allegations of violations to the Student Code of Conduct, including hazing and providing alcohol to minors. The allegations came to light following a University of Arizona Police Department investigation into the death of 19-year-old Michael Anderson who was a freshman in FIJI. FIJI’s house has now been converted into a residence hall called Rawls/Eller Lodge. The earliest the fraternity can come back to the UA campus is April 2019.

UA marijuana researcher fired

A prominent UA marijuana researcher was fired unexpectedly in June, prompting claims of political retribution against the university. Dr. Suzanne Sisley had spent years getting approval from the federal government and the UA to conduct a study testing the effects of medical marijuana on treating post-traumatic stress disorder. Arizona state senator Kimberly Yee, however, blocked funding for the study in March. Some veterans have expressed outrage over Sisley’s dismissal and a petition on change. org to reinstate her has garnered more than 107,000 supporters. The PTSD study’s future is now uncertain as the UA can still conduct the study, but the organization that is sponsoring it wants Sisley involved, which is not possible anymore.

TPD finds actions during March melee justified

The Tucson Police Department found its conduct justified in regards to the melee with rowdy fans on University Boulevard following the Arizona men’s basketball team’s loss in the Elite Eight on March 29. The inquiry, using footage from officers’ body cameras, third-party footage and a walkthrough, concluded that most of the actions taken by officers in controlling the crowd were appropriate and officers displayed “a great deal of self-restraint.” The inquiry singled out Sgt. Joel Mann, the TPD officer in the widely-circulated video that showed him knocking a woman over a bench, as being inappropriate in his conduct during the melee. The Federal Bureau of Investigation is investigating Mann for potential civil rights violations. In a written statement, TPD chief

Free rides were among activities celebrating the streetcar’s opening.

Roberto Villaseñor faulted the media for excessive coverage of isolated incidents of police violence.

UA goes tobacco-free

After several years of considering the ban, the UA has decided to go tobacco-free on its campuses. The new policy bans products containing tobacco and nicotine, including cigarettes, cigars, pipes and hookahs. The tobacco ban is effective today on the UA main campus, the Arizona Health Sciences Center, UA South and the Phoenix Biomedical Campus. Following feedback from the announcement, the policy has been amended to permit the use of e-cigarettes, as their safety is still under review.

Tucson streetcar begins operations

Following years of construction and some delays, the Sun Link Tucson Modern Streetcar began operations in July to a boisterous grand opening ceremony along its four-mile track. The streetcar’s route takes it from UA campus through the businesses along Fourth Avenue and Congress Street and all the way out to Mercado San Agustin on the west side of Interstate 10. Free 30-day passes to ride the streetcar are currently available to UA students and staff. — Follow Ethan McSweeney @ethanmcsweeney


OVER THE SUMMER, the former FIJI fraternity house was turned into a dormitory that will house 64 students. FIJI lost recognition from the UA on Aug. 18 due to violations of the Student Code of Conduct.

Lessons found in Williams’ suicide BY PAUL THOMSON The Daily Wildcat


n amazing thing happened this week: I changed my mind. Robin Williams’ death affected a lot of people. I didn’t do any “down and dirty” surveys to come to that conclusion, but based on the number of articles, Facebook statuses and Instagram tributes I’ve seen, Williams’ death has shaken our generation. For a lot of us, Williams was a pivotal actor who starred in a lot of nostalgic films. From “Aladdin” to “Mrs. Doubtfire” to “Flubber,” the Juilliard-trained comedian made us laugh and cry simultaneously. He was someone our parents trusted from their experiences with his earlier films, but who never forewent opportunities to usher in a younger generation of fans. So I sympathized and mourned, too. However, more than mournful, I was frustrated by the way the media and the public were handling Williams’ death. It seemed like every article I read had something to say about the irony of Williams — comedian of all comedians — suffering depression and ending his life. The idea that he made us all laugh, but no one knew how hard he cried. Give me a break. Just because the guy played funny parts means he wasn’t allowed to suffer from mental illness? That’s not irony. That’s being human. I was even more upset upon hearing that Williams’ daughter, Zelda, had deleted her Twitter and Instagram accounts just days after news broke of her father’s suicide. According to her posts, she felt so disrespected, harassed and hurt by so-called “fans” calling into question her relationship with her father and accusing her of contributing to his death that she decided to take a break from Twitter and Instagram. I was ready to write. Pen in hand and frustration in heart, I sat down to write a scathing article about the price of fame, actors’ celebrity-hood and how actors are just people, too. Just because you religiously watched someone in a funny movie as a kid does not mean you know them or have the right to comment on their life or speculate about their death. Halfway through writing the article, though, wiping anger-spit from my lower lip, I decided to give myself a breather: I checked my email. A message from Debra Cox-Howard, a mental health professional, was sitting patiently in my inbox. I had asked CoxHoward to comment on the media’s depiction of Williams’ death. A licensed mental health clinician at Counseling and Psych Services and outreach coordinator here on campus, Cox-Howard answered, “It is my opinion that his death puts a well-known and familiar ‘face’ to suicide and mental illness in general, and that can be a good thing in that it grabs your attention. It is important for people to know and to see that just because a person ‘looks’ OK, that may not necessarily be the case.” I stopped writing that article. I was wrong. She was right. Williams is neither a friend nor a stranger; he’s a celebrity. Being a celebrity means living your life in the public eye. Whether that is a blessing or a curse or something in-between, this is the price you pay for international success and fame. Because he was a celebrity, Williams’ suicide is a huge event, something that has repercussions far beyond those closest to the deceased. Celebrities are teachers, and their lives — and deaths — are lessons. Williams’ suicide shouldn’t have had to happen. If we can learn from it, though, then maybe he didn’t die in vain. — Paul Thomson is a senior studying BFA acting and Africana studies. Follow him @BePaulite


President Hart: Major changes this year at UA President Hart welcomes new and returning students to a new year at the UA.



Guest column

ear Arizona Wildcats, Welcome home to the University of Arizona! I hope that all of you, new and returning students alike, had a wonderful summer. I know that many of you were here taking courses, some were working or completing internships and others had amazing travel experiences, including studies abroad. Wherever you are coming from, I hope that you are excited for a dynamic year here at the UA. There are many changes in and around the UA this year: The rehabilitation of our beloved Old Main is complete, and McKale Center is undergoing a major renovation that will help us cheer the UA basketball teams to even greater heights than last year. I hope all of you have the opportunity to see and experience these reinvigorated and iconic buildings. Tours leave from the first floor of Old Main every day. If you have friends or relatives visit you here, the tours are a great way to show off our beautiful home. Another major change is Tucson’s Sun Link Modern Streetcar. UA students, faculty and staff are eligible for a free pass through Sept. 14 and a 50 percent

discount on semester or yearly passes is available as well. The streetcar runs through the UA campus and downtown Tucson on its way to the Mercado District west of Interstate 10. It is a wonderful way to see more of the city, and I encourage you to take advantage of this great new transportation resource. There are changes going on behind the scenes here at the UA as well, and many new opportunities are available to you as students. As some of you will remember from last year, we have launched a new strategic plan, Never Settle, which is guiding our work as one of the world’s best research universities. One of the most important parts of the Never Settle plan is our 100 percent student engagement initiative, which is creating opportunities for every student to participate, engage and apply learning experiences outside the classroom and laboratory. For example, students working in the Ralph Steckler Phase II Lunar Greenhouse program are helping to develop technology that could be the foundation for future space exploration and a resource to address agricultural challenges here on Earth. Here are a few more ways the university is helping ensure your success: • Career Services houses a set of resources that will provide a central point of access for over 15,000 available internships and other experiential learning programs. • Other important portals include the

Undergraduate Research Opportunities Consortium and leadership opportunities like the Blue Chip program. • Starting this year, UA transcripts will feature a Signature Graduation with Engagement designation to signify completion of engagement activities — internships, research projects, studies abroad and the like — as a hallmark of a UA degree. • The Bear Down Downtown event in just two days (Aug. 27), will give you the chance to meet with organizations offering professional experience opportunities throughout Southern Arizona. See #BearDownDowntown for more information and to register for this event. In May, I told the class of 2014 that there are far more opportunities available as UA graduates than they could imagine. The same is true for you as students. As we begin the academic year, I urge you to seek out the resources and learning experiences that make the UA a unique and wonderful place. You will have the full support of our entire university community, and I can’t wait to see what all of you will accomplish.

Bear Down! Ann Weaver Hart President


Editor in Chief: We are here for you BY JOEY FISHER The Daily Wildcat


he great Leslie Knope once said, “There’s nothing we can’t do if we work hard, never sleep and shirk all other responsibilities in our lives.” This is definitely our motto at the Daily Wildcat. Every semester we tell ourselves that we will go to every class, do every assignment ahead of time and not spend money on junk food at the U-Mart (better known to us as the corner store). But every year, those promises to ourselves fall by the wayside, and this paper becomes our first priority.

The Daily Wildcat Editorial Policy Daily Wildcat staff editorials represent the official opinion of the Daily Wildcat staff, which is determined at staff editorial meetings. Columns, cartoons, online comments and letters to the editors represent the opinion of their author and do not represent the opinion of the Daily Wildcat.


I’ve known editors who have failed classes, lost relationships, pulled three all-nighters in a row and even one who was shot with a pepper ball by riot police. And why do we do this to ourselves? Because we love what we do. As journalists, our job is to seek the truth and report it. We are here not for the university, not for the faculty and definitely not for our own mental health. We are here for you. We want to make sure you are informed about any injustices, interesting studies or awesome events that are happening. If there’s a car accident on University Boulevard or celebrities come visit the campus, we want to make sure you know about it. The UA is such a unique place in

a unique town. There are so many interesting things and people here. We want to make sure that the students who participate in Roller Derby or are the underdogs in the Associated Students of the University of Arizona elections get their spotlight. We want to investigate topics like sexual assault or students who use food stamps or abuse Adderall. But are we getting everything? Probably not. We want to hear from you, the student body, about anything we missed. We all look at our website every day and read your comments, hear your thoughts and share your ideas. I often hear that there is no other job like this on campus, and I have to agree with that. The sleepless nights and lack of a social life are all worth it in the end when we see the paper on the stands the next day. When we receive emails thanking us for covering something, it really does mean everything. So please, don’t be afraid to reach out. We are here for you. — Joey Fisher is a senior studying journalism and the current editor-in-chief. Follow her @Jo_Fiish

Don’t shoot the messenger

An employee at the Bursar’s Office was threatened by a UA student’s father after his daughter was denied registration for the fall semester because she owed over $50,000 to the university. The employee spoke with the father and said he was extremely angry because of his daughter’s registration denial. The employee told a University of Arizona Police Department officer that the father said, “What do I need to do? Bring a gun down there?” The employee said she didn’t feel threatened or intimidated by the father’s comments. The employee then provided the officer with the father’s phone number. Shortly after speaking with the employee, the officer called the father and asked if he said, “What do I need to do? Bring a gun down there?” The man stated he did not say that to the employee. He told the officer on the phone that he had said to the employee, “We can’t do anything. We can’t pull a gun on anyone to make them do anything.” He apologized repeatedly to the officer and stated that he intended for what he said to the employee to be a figure of speech. The father said he wouldn’t hurt anyone and didn’t mean for the things he said to come off as threatening. Later in the day, the officer received a phone call from the father who said he left a voice message for the employee apologizing for what he had said.

Coffeehouse criminal

A man was advised that he was under arrest for shoplifting from the Starbucks at the UA Main Library and was later cited and released from the scene. A UAPD officer responded to a call from a Starbucks employee about a theft that occurred earlier that day. The employee told the officer that he had seen the man on numerous occasions in that Starbucks store and was suspicious that he was stealing display items from the front counter. On that particular day, the employee came to the front of the counter and stood behind the man. He told the officer that he saw the man take a granola bar and place it in his right pocket. The man bought a drink, but didn’t pay for the granola bar. The granola bar was valued at $2.50. The employee said the man then left the Starbucks and entered the library. The officer asked the employee if Starbucks wanted to prosecute for the theft, but the employee said he would need to talk to the manager first. The officer also asked if video surveillance was available and was directed to the UA director of library facilities. The officer went to the library to talk to the suspect, where another UAPD officer was already with him. The man told the officers he was in Starbucks earlier to buy a drink and then went to the library to use a computer. Later on in the day, the video footage was available and the officer watched it. The footage showed the man at the Starbucks counter pocketing the granola bar without paying for it. After watching the footage, Starbucks contacted UAPD and said that the man came back. Two officers went to the Starbucks and were directed to the library, where the man went. Starbucks told the officer they wanted to prosecute the man for the theft, so the officer read the man his Miranda rights. The man said, “I stay silent!” The officer advised the man he was under arrest for shoplifting and was then cited and released from the scene.

TUCSONANS BOARDED THE NEW Sun Link Tucson Modern Streetcar at the University Boulevard and Tyndall Avenue stop on July 25. Free 30-day passes are currently available to UA students and faculty.


as it can, while still being efficient for students like Johnson and Witteman, and to students like undeclared freshman Charlotte Walk, who live in the dorms. Walk took advantage of the month-long free pass and said that she plans on using the streetcar to do some “sightseeing downtown,” and that the free pass may convince her to purchase a pass. She understands how the streetcar might cause a little more traffic, but said she is excited and that she thinks the positives outweigh the negatives. “[The Sun Link] is an [ingenious] way to offer transportation where streets and lots are already packed enough with people and cars,” Walk said. “Hopefully it’s a step in the right direction for improving Tucson’s public transit system overall.” Microbiology junior Kylie Boardman didn’t apply for the free pass, but said she hopes to use the Sun Link and that the ecofriendly streetcar would make a positive impact on the district as a whole. Ignoring the dispute on whether or not the Sun Link should exist, the 30-day pass appears to be a hit. Students and faculty are already taking advantage of the free transportation. Students living in some off-campus housing can enjoy free rides to school, as the Sun Link stops near The Cadence, The District, Tucson Next Level and The Junction at Ironhorse.

With only a few hours in the evening to host them, it was really hard to have a successful recruitment,� Geyer said. “We wanted to give our chapters more time and give our PNMs a better opportunity to see the 17 chapters that we have instead of just two or three.� Jeremy Zilmer, coordinator of Fraternity & Sorority Programs, said that a lot of first-year students base their decisions on what they think is popular, what they see on social media or what they hear from their peers. With the old process allowing PNMs to choose which chapters they wanted to see, less renowned chapters struggled to achieve their new class size goals for the year. “We wanted to have a process that was fair in the sense that it would put all our chapters on an equal playing field,� Zilmer said. “The point was to make it a more fair and equitable process.� The new process shares similarities with the sorority recruitment process; however,

ARIZONA SOPHOMORE infielder Kevin Newman (2) hits a base hit during Arizona’s 6-5 win against UCLA at Hi Corbett Field on April 13. Newman made Cape Cod Baseball League history by leading the league in batting average for two consecutive seasons.


Championship and 2011 FIBA Americas U-16 Championship teams.

The majority of Arizona athletic events take place during the school year, but that doesn’t mean summer lacks intrigue. From Stanley Johnson winning FIBA MVP honors to Tra’Mayne Bondurant rejoining the football team to Kevin Newman making Cape Cod Baseball League history, here is a recap of major UA athletic news from over the summer.

Tra’Mayne Bondurant rejoins football team

The Daily Wildcat

As fall football camp began, Arizona head football coach Rich Rodriguez informed the media that, due to disciplinary reasons, senior safety Tra’Mayne Bondurant was no longer a part of the team. Rodriguez said that he had not yet talked to Bondurant, but there was a possibility for him to rejoin the team if he did everything he needed Stan the Man to do. Freshman forward Stanley Bondurant rejoined the team Not only is he Johnson came to Arizona as shortly after and has since been a good player, one of the most highly touted practicing with the team and will but he’s also recruits in the class of 2014 be available to play in the Aug. 29 a great young and added to his accolades by season opener against UNLV. winning MVP honors in June. “He may play, but he’s just man.— Andy Lopez, UA baseball coach Johnson, a member of the now getting reps … and so he will 2014 USA Men’s U-18 National not start on any unit,” Rodriguez team, helped Team USA secure said. “He’s worked his way back a 113-79 victory over Canada to at least get an opportunity to in the gold-medal game. play.” The 6-foot-7 forward averaged a team-high 14 Bondurant finished last season with 72 tackles points per game in just 16 minutes per game en and a team-leading four interceptions. route to being named MVP of the tournament. “It’s a team honor, really,” Johnson said in a Newman makes CCBL history Team USA press release. “Anybody on the team Arizona sophomore infielder Kevin Newman could have gotten it; what’s more important is made Cape Cod Baseball League history by winning the gold medal and all of us playing becoming the first person to ever lead the league hard to get it.” in batting average for two consecutive seasons.

When you think of all the players who have played in the Cape Cod League — and I’m sure there are probably some Hall of Famers who have played in it — it’s quite an accomplishment to be the first to achieve what he’s done.” In 2013, Newman hit .375 in his first season in the CCBL and became the first freshman to ever lead the league in batting average. The 6-foot-1 infielder topped that by batting .380 in his second season in the league.

Miller rakes in more high-level recruits

Sean Miller is entering his sixth season as the Arizona men’s basketball head coach and has firmly established himself as one of the best recruiters in the nation. According to ESPN, Miller has secured four straight top-10 recruiting classes from 2011-14. Miller hit the road again this summer as he looked to make the 2015 class his fifth straight top-10 class. From the onset, it was clear that goal was well in reach. After five-star guard Justin Simon committed to Arizona in May, Miller added two more fivestar recruits in forward Ray Smith and guard Allonzo Trier over the summer. With three five-star recruits having already committed and several other on Miller’s radar, the 2015 class could be his best ever. — Follow Roberto Payne @HouseofPayne555

ast season may not have ended on a high note for Arizona men’s basketball, but the Wildcats have had a near-perfect summer. Past, present and future Wildcats made the program look good, and it isn’t just the pretty new uniforms. From May through August, the Wildcats received commitments from three five-star recruits, according to Rivals and Scout. In May, shooting guard Justin Simon committed to the UA , followed by small forward Ray Smith in July and shooting guard Allonzo Trier in August. Those are in addition to power forward Ryan Anderson, who elected to sit out a season after transferring from Boston College. Scout ranks Trier as the second best shooting guard in the country,

Rubio looks to take steps toward contention BY EVAN ROSENFELD The Daily Wildcat

Arizona volleyball returns five seniors and eight players overall from last season’s effort, which saw the squad earn an NCAA Tournament berth. The UA finished last year with a 2113 record but saw its season end after dropping three consecutive sets against San Diego in the Round of 32. This year, the Wildcats open their season in Green Bay at the Wisconsin Tournament, facing off against South Dakota on Aug. 29 before taking on Green Bay and Kansas the following day. The UA will host two tournaments this fall: the Arizona Invitational and Wildcat Classic. The Invitational is scheduled to take place from Sept. 5-6 in the newly renovated McKale Center. The Classic will occur the weekend of Sept. 19. “I really have a special group of terrific young ladies,” volleyball head coach Dave Rubio said. “I can’t remember, if ever, I’ve had a group as willing and committed to working hard every day [and] not making excuses. I look forward to walking into the gym every day with them.” Rubio explained that the team has a good blend of both young and old talent. While he said he’d still like the team to be better and sharper, they’re still a little sloppy at times. Rubio added that the team will solidify more as it starts to see live competition later this month. “We’re going to take last year’s experience and keep that close to us. We didn’t like the way it ended,” UA senior libero Ronni Lewis said. “We’re going to use that as a motivating factor and try to stay together more as a team. One goal in mind — I think that’s a huge part of being successful — having the whole team together and in it. I think it will really drive us forward.” As a junior, Lewis played an integral part on the team and was on the court in all of the Wildcats’ 34 matches, only missing three of the team’s 118 sets.

ith the start of the new school year, there is an abundance of new and unfamiliar faces roaming around Arizona’s campus. Arizona hockey fans should begin to familiarize themselves with the face and name of new head coach, Chad Berman. Player development is an important emphasis for coach Berman because of his experience as a former hockey player. Berman said that as a young player, he idolized Dino Ciccarelli from the Detroit Red Wings. Berman said Ciccarelli was an undersized player who was successful due to his tremendous heart and work ethic. “I was a late grower and always took pride in being the hardest working player on every team I played for,” Berman said. “I have always been someone who sets their mind to accomplishing something, and I find a way. I intend to do the same thing here and bring us a national championship.” When Berman was playing in the Midgets’ league, he said a parent told him that he would never play Junior B. However, the following year, he did so. He went on to play Junior A in the North American Hockey League for the Springfield Spirit. “This was one of my proudest accomplishments individually. I led the team in scoring after 10 games, so I mailed my stats sheet to the parent who told me I would never make it to the league lower than [the one] I was eventually playing for.” Berman has six seasons of coaching under his belt as an assistant coach in Illinois at Robert Morris University. Replacing Sean Hogan, Berman comes into the Arizona program with great expectations and high

Rivals ranked No. 4 in the country, Scout ranked No. 5 and Sporting News ranked No. 1. Not long after Trier committed, Sports Illustrated reported that sophomore forward Rondae Hollis-Jefferson added a consistent jump shot over the summer. If he combines that with his already great defense and rebounding, HollisJefferson is easily a national Player of the Year candidate. The only bad news for the Wildcats this summer is the announcement regarding seat-availability for the Red-Blue Game. Think about that.

Mayor celebrates Tucson’s birthday BY KEVIN C. REAGAN The Daily Wildcat

Although the birthday cake did not have 239 candles on it, there was still plenty of merriment at the Southern Arizona Transportation Museum this Saturday to signal Tucson’s historic milestone. Mayor Jonathan Rothschild led an annual celebration at the museum with a crowd of onlookers and supporters of the museum. Rothschild offered a proclamation to officially recognize the day of celebration and then proceeded to make the first slice into the decorative birthday cake, which was donated by a nearby Bashas’. “It is particularly appropriate that we are here at this depot,” said Rothschild, who is a third-generation native Tucsonan. Rothschild said that the transportation depot significantly changed Tucson’s landscape when the railroad opened back in 1880. The depot presently houses a small museum with artifacts dating back to when Tucson first welcomed the railroad. “We can’t forget the big rails here,” Rothschild said, “because they are

great horror film parodies over the years, but this rendition from 1996 has perhaps the most versatile vignettes. The lineup includes a callback to the Clinton vs. Dole presidential campaign, a microcosmic society that Lisa accidentally creates from her science experiment and the discovery of Bart’s evil twin. What really tops the cake is the scene of Clinton and Dole walking hand in hand down a public sidewalk. Is their anything scarier than two politicians actually getting along?

the railroad to be seen at the birthday celebration. Volunteers of the museum handed out paper trainconductor hats and Amtrak-themed coloring books to the cavalcade of

young families present at the event. “The train helped bring new residents to the town,” said Stephen Hackney, a museum volunteer. “It’s a nice, tangible connection to the

city’s past.” Tucson was first founded by Hugh O’Conor in 1775 but would not become a part of United States territory until 1854. When O’Conor first founded the city as a military post in the 18th century, he named it the Presidio Royale San Augustine de Tucson. After the introduction of the railroad in 1880, Tucson’s population had reached 8,000 residents. By 1950, it had expanded to 120,000 residents. “The enormity of [Tucson] is almost staggering,” said John Champney, a guest at the birthday celebration. Champney is a resident of Detroit and first came to Tucson in the late 1950s when he was stationed at Davis-Monthan Air Force Base. Champney said that he tries to venture back to the Old Pueblo as often as possible since he really enjoys the Spanish motifs of the city. “I come to Tucson as often as I can to vacation,” Champney said. “The weather [and] the culture [are] just great.”

“Homer’s Enemy” (Season 8, Episode 23)

Homer’s lazy, hoggish antics have always gone unchecked, if not enabled, by all of Springfield. The arrival of a hardworking man named Frank Grimes to the nuclear power plant finally offers an antagonist to highlight the lunacy of Homer’s position in the world: an uneducated buffoon with a full-time job living in a modest, two-story home. Grimes’ criticism of Homer’s behavior turns into an outright obsession that mistakenly leads to his death. The tragedy of this one-time character identifies the fact that sometimes life just isn’t fair.

UA students share their off-campus, summer internship experiences

5 memorable moments of ‘The Simpsons’ Binge-a-thon



The Daily Wildcat

What did you do over your summer break? Did you meet family? Did you fight in a political battle? Did you travel to the rain forest? A good way to do all of this would be to apply to an internship of your interest. Kendall Stokes, a systems engineering sophomore, and Julian Sharpe, a business economics freshman, both spent their summers expanding their horizons with internship positions outside the academic setting. Here is what they had to say about their recent experiences:

If one were to watch all 552 episodes of the beloved animated series “The Simpsons,” it would take approximately 12 full days. No reasonably sane person would have the time to undertake such an endeavor, yet the FXX network has posed the challenge to fans of the yellow-skinned family by airing all 25 seasons non-stop starting Aug. 21. The marathon is presently in the middle of the show’s ninth season, which originally aired back in 1997 on Fox. The marathon is expected to end this coming Labor Day with the series’ most recently produced episode, “The Yellow Badge of Cowardice.” If you don’t have the stamina of digesting every antic of Homer, Marge, Bart, Lisa and Maggie, then here is a shortlist of some memorable moments from the episodes that have aired thus far:

Daily Wildcat: Can you tell us a little bit about your internship experience this summer? Stokes: “I interned with the REVAMP REU. This stands for the Research Experience for Veterans and Minority Students Program at the Georgia Institute of Technology.” — Stokes Sharpe:“I am interning with Martha McSally for Congress until election day on Nov. 4th. I got the internship by contacting the campaign headquarters and setting up an interview.” What convinced you to intern with this organization? Stokes: “I loved both the idea of the opportunity and the large stipend as compensation for my time. They paid for all traveling arrangements, also, which was definitely appreciated.” Sharpe: “I have always had a passion for politics and I knew the CD2 race was one of the most competitive races in the country. I was also easily convinced by Martha’s message and what she aims to do for District 2, Arizona and the nation.” What were your expectations when you arrived and how were they met and/or proven different from your original expectations? Stokes: “My expectations were that I was going to be closely watched, more of a shadowing experience. Instead, I received the opportunity to act as a graduate student. I was assigned a topic, and from there, I was to create a proposal on further research in that area. Finally, I was expected to implement that very research and gather information that could be used to improve upon the advancements made to date.” What are some of your responsibilities on the team? Sharpe: “My main responsibilities are to reach out to voters and talk with them about their concerns about the issues facing us locally and nationally.” What were some of your best memories there during your internship? Stokes: “My best memories were definitely through some of the networking events in Georgia. One of them was a ziplining tour from the longest zip line company in the entire nation, which proved to be absolutely incredible.” Sharpe: “The best memories I have so far are those of the office banter with staff and interns.” What are your goals after graduation? Stokes: “Currently, I am looking to go to graduate school and get my masters in either business or systems engineering.


SYSTEMS ENGINEERING sophomore Kendall Stokes spent the summer at the Georgia Institute of Technology.

After gaining the necessary skill sets, I would like to one day open my own business.” Sharpe: “I plan on graduating with a degree in business economics from the Eller College and someday get into public service myself.” Do you have any advice for fellow interns in and outside of your field? Stokes: “I would advise fellow interns not to be completely overwhelmed by challenging application requirements, and, more importantly than that, to not to be their own ‘no’. It is challenging, but the experiences you can receive are unparalleled to everything else. Definitely worth it!”

“I Married Marge” (Season 3, Episode 12)

Dysfunction has always seemed to be the ingredient that has kept Homer and Marge’s marriage afloat for the last quarter of a century. In-between his impulsive drinking and her cautious nagging is a harmony that balances this odd couple. This harmony is uncovered for the first time in this flashback episode to the couple’s shotgun wedding at a casino chapel. The honeymoon is cut short when Homer leaves Marge, believing he’s not the man she deserves. It’s an emotional power punch for this slapstick satire of a series.

“$pringfield (or, How I Learned to Stop Worrying

and Love Legalized Gambling)” (Season 5, Episode 10)

When Springfield unanimously votes to stave off its economic debts by legalizing gambling, a giant casino is erected by the cantankerous tycoon Mr. Burns. This episode interestingly reverses the Simpson family dynamic by unleashing a dangerous gambling addiction on Marge, instead of the more gluttonous Homer. It’s a testament to the fact that every person, even a cartoon character, has their own flaws. Also, Mr. Burns’ descent into a Howard Hughes-like madness over his casino is a poignant commentary on the destructiveness of greed.

“Bart’s Girlfriend” (Season 6, Episode 7)

Of the plethora of celebrity talent that has guest starred on “The Simpsons,” few have left such an indelible impression as the marvelous Meryl Streep in this episode about the complexity of grade school romances. When troublemaker Bart resigns his devious ways to win the affection of Reverend Lovejoy’s dainty daughter Jessica (Streep), he is shocked to discover that she secretly has the malice of a femme fatale. Even when she’s playing a cartoon character, Streep manages to steal every scene with a catlike playfulness that underscores her schoolgirl voice. Do they give out Emmys for voice-over performances?
