New med building allows for expansion YARA ASKAR Arizona Daily Wildcat

A new health sciences education building on the College of Medicine — Phoenix Campus has allowed this year’s class to nearly double its enrollment to 80 students, from last year’s 48. The 268,000-square foot, $135-million building will house the sixth class of medical students from both the UA and Northern Arizona University. This will provide the facility with better opportunities to train the next team of health physicians, according to Judy Bernas, associate vice president for external relations for the UA in Phoenix . After two years of construction work, the building opened its doors to students on July 13. From a competitive pool of 850 applicants, the new building will welcome 80 new students. Ten years ago, the UA decided to expand its College of Medicine to Phoenix to help increase the number of doctors in Arizona and provide more opportunities to students, Bernas said. This new building was possible with the help of a partnership with the city of Phoenix, she added. “For the UA, this building really signifies the university’s presence in Phoenix and reinforces its state-wide presence,” she said. The building will be used

The city of Tucson and UA Parking and Transportation Services have been working together to ensure the safety of community members during the streetcar’s construction. A public relations team is also planning a series of outreach and educational programs to teach pedestrians, cyclists and motorists how to be safe once the streetcar is operating. Many changes are being made to address safety, including new traffic signals, two-way streets and the removal of parallel parking on Second Street for space. While planning for the streetcar project, public education and safety were included in the budget, said Mary McLain, assistant general manager for Sun Tran and safety and security officer for the streetcar project. The streetcar construction company is required to submit safety certification reports which are then verified, documented and maintained by the city. Apart from the safety committee that McLain works with, there is also a communications committee in

charge of sharing safety information with the community. Though the committee hasn’t yet finalized the ways it plans to share this information, McLain said it will be a continuous effort that will probably include open meetings as well as social media, just as information about the project has been shared thus far. “It’s about changing people,” said Bill Davidson, marketing specialist of Parking and Transportation Services. “It’s really making yourself aware of your surroundings, being alert.” Striping and taping on the road as well as street signs will be in place once the streetcar is open to the public. These signs will show cyclists how to cross tracks and warn drivers of streetcar stops. David Heineking, director of PTS, said PTS is also working with the city to create a pedestrian and bike safety brochure which he is hoping to have on the streetcar and around the community. “We want to try to reach as many people [as we can],” Heineking said. A traffic light will replace the current four-way stop at the Park Avenue and


Improvements among freshmen KYLE MITTAN Arizona Daily Wildcat

As the largest freshman class in UA history, the class of 2016 shows improvements in certain academic areas over classes of past years. In a media advisory in Bear Down Gymnasium on Friday morning, Vice President for Student Affairs Melissa Vito and Kasey Urquidez, the associate vice president for Student Affairs and

Enrollment Management and dean of undergraduate admissions, discussed the UA’s largest-ever freshman class, focusing mainly on academic preparedness and ethnic diversity. The latest class to be admitted adds approximately 7,450 to a total campus enrollment of about 40,000, surpassing fall 2011’s freshman class by about 150 students. The new class’s grade point

Fundraiser will help pay for student’s treatments KYLE MITTAN Arizona Daily Wildcat

A Vail high school held a talent show and dance fundraiser at 6 p.m. on Friday to help pay for a UA student’s treatments following an accident at the Grand Canyon resulting in a traumatic head injury. The student remains in critical but improving condition. On Aug. 3, Austin Hilkemeyer, a would-be sophomore this year who studied environmental science as a freshman, was on a hiking trip with his family. According to his mother, Tina Hilkemeyer, her son left at night with his father’s cousin, James MacCurdy, leaving the other family members behind at their cabin. It eventually

began to rain, prompting the two to return to the cabin. On their way back, while passing through a narrow point in the trail, rocks fell from a cliff, striking Austin Hilkemeyer on the head and knocking him unconscious. Hilkemeyer was flown to Flagstaff Medical Center, where he remained in an intensive care unit until last Sunday, according to a Facebook post on a page created for his recovery. As of Friday, Hilkemeyer had been moved to a Tucson hospital, Tina Hilkemeyer said, adding that she wouldn’t say which one in order to protect his privacy. She said his condition is improving, as he is able to talk and perform scheduled walks for his rehabilitation regimen.

Friends of the Hilkemeyer family arranged the talent show and dance fundraiser at Andrada Polytechnical High School in Vail, where the family is from. The event had a $10 admission, and all proceeds went to funding Austin Hilkemeyer’s treatments. Tina Hilkemeyer said the response from the Vail community has been very positive and helpful — a characteristic she said she’s noticed often since moving there in 1999. “I think if you don’t live here, then you don’t get it,” she said. “I’ve seen Vail do this time and time again for families.” The Hilkemeyer family has also made t-shirts with “Bear Down Austin” printed across

the front, which they have been selling through a website to collect additional funds. Anyone interested in donating can visit or go to any local Wells Fargo branch. According to his mother, Austin Hilkemeyer switched his major several times during his freshman year, starting in business, then moving to engineering before finally settling on environmental science. She added that her son was interested in eventually becoming a park ranger, chuckling at the irony. While he hasn’t been able to return to class, Tina Hilkemeyer said her family is hopeful that he will be able to continue pursuing his degree after his surgeries in the future.

“The streetcar is going through some areas where you have a lot of people riding bikes that aren’t really experienced,” said McKisson. “The challenge there is a lot of them may not know how to safely cross tracks.” Cyclists are always advised to cross tracks at a 90 degree angle or as close to a 90 degree angle as possible. People are advised not to run across traffic to catch the streetcar, which could cause serious accidents as well. The general advice for anyone around the streetcar is similar to general traffic safety advice. People are asked to be aware of their surroundings and be alert. “I hope that in the end, that it’s going to work out well for people riding the streetcar, for motorists, bicyclists and pedestrians,” McKisson said. The city’s streetcar review committee includes people from the fire department and police department as well as transit and traffic engineers who all work together to ensure that everyone’s safety is being addressed. PTS will be hosting an open house on Wednesday to inform people about how to stay safe while near construction zones and what to expect once construction is over. “We’re working as a city structure,” McLain said, “as a community, to bring the right people together.”

THE COLLEGE OF MEDICINE — Phoenix’s new health sciences building will alllow for nearly twice as many students to enroll. The building, which cost about $135 million, was completed on July 13.

The College of Medicine in Tucson will host about 110 incoming students. Students can apply to the campuses in both Phoenix and Tucson to increase their chances of acceptance, but a different application is required for each college, Bernas said, adding that the new college will provide the same basic curriculum as the college in Tucson. Both campuses will be working on a collaborative effort to create a professional environment and more benefits for future physicians, including more programs, bigger classrooms, new equipment and a new library, said Rebecca Fega, second-year medical student at the College of Medicine — Phoenix. “We are all excited and enthusiastic about our growth on campus,” Fega said. “It’s a positive step in the right direction toward collaboratively training health care professionals. It’s a monumental building and something that we are all very proud of.”

by a number of colleges, including the College of Medicine – Phoenix, the College of Pharmacy and the Mel and Enid Zuckerman College of Public Health, according to Al Bravo, associate director of public affairs of the College of Medicine — Phoenix. The college will also expand its physical therapy program from Flagstaff to Phoenix and start a new physician’s assistant program, Bravo added. With the new building, the UA hopes to train more health professionals who will stay in Arizona, Bernas said. “We have a very severe shortage of physicians in Arizona so the opportunity to bring more students is really important,” Bernas added.

average saw a slight increase from 3.41 in 2011 to 3.44, as well as an increase in its average math and critical reading scores on SATs. “To be able to grow in numbers and also to grow in quality really reflects the amazing work of the whole team in Enrollment Management,” Vito said. Additionally, certain colleges saw increases in enrollment with the new class, specifically in the Colleges of Engineering, Medicine, Science and Agriculture and Life Sciences. Despite the growth in these areas, Vito said there wasn’t any concern about enrollment in the arts and humanities departments. “We’ve got a big class, and we’ve still got a lot of students who are choosing a more liberal

arts area,” she said. “The College of Letters, Arts and Sciences still tends to be our largest area for our incoming students. We want our students to be well-rounded, so our STEM students still … take some humanities courses and have an experience that goes beyond just engineering or just a major.” The class also saw growth in ethnic diversity, with 25 percent more Latino students enrolling over the last two years, as well as an increased number of international students, the majority of whom are from China. “That is really significant and important to us, as well,” Urquidez said, “as our students get to interact and learn from one another.” Urquidez added that many international students are already proficient in English upon enrollment, but that the UA’s Center for English as a Second Language has served as a “pipeline,” allowing

international students to start classes with a solid understanding of the language beforehand. Given the increase in freshman enrollment, initiatives have also been put in place to try to keep students working within Arizona after they graduate, according to Eileen McGarry, the director of Career Services. McGarry added that her department does regular outreach to nearly 120 Arizona companies, and that 60 percent of all recruits looking for potential employees from the UA are from companies within the state. These initiatives play a big part in maintaining a stable economy, she said. “When you have an educated workforce in a state, it elevates that state, its economic viability, everything,” McGarry said. “If people are investing in education, they want to see the outcome stay so that the economy is vibrant.”

University Boulevard intersection to reduce confusion between pedestrians, cyclists, motorists and the streetcar. “I think that’s going to make a lot of pedestrians frustrated because they’re going to have to wait but that intersection … it’s chaos,” said Michael McKisson, adjunct professor in the School of Journalism and publisher at, a news website that focuses on local cycling. “It’s not a pleasant intersection … so I think that (the traffic light) is actually going to be a really good upgrade.” While parallel parking will be removed on Second Street for space, it will be maintained on Fourth Avenue and back-in parking will be maintained on University Boulevard. Heineking said PTS is looking for alternate routes to segregate cyclists to other streets, keeping them safe and away from the streetcar whenever possible. Still, others, including McKisson, aren’t convinced that the other forms of transportation will be given much to work with. “The streetcar was given priority over every other road user,” McKisson said. “I’m concerned that there is a little too much trying to be crammed into a small roadway.” Some of these crowded areas place a cyclist between a “door IF YOU GO zone” and streetcar tracks, McKisson added.

In Thursday’s article entitled “Campus outreach, fees, voting on ASUA’s plate for fall semester,” the third paragraph indicated that Sen. Logan Bilby had proposed to cut the Career Services fee for seniors from $25 to $5, and that freshmen would then receive the same services as seniors. Instead, Bilby’s proposal, which was passed at the meeting, gives students the option to pay a $5 Career Services fee during each of their undergraduate years, totaling $20, rather than pay the $25 fee as a senior. The Arizona Daily Wildcat regrets this mistake.

The change represents the second consecutive time Republicans have had to juggle the schedule because of weather. In 2008, Republicans dramatically altered their Monday program, which was to feature speeches by President George W. Bush, Vice President Dick Cheney and the governors of Louisiana and Florida. But two hurricanes were heading for their states, the governors headed home, the convention attended to routine business, and corporate sponsors were urged to tone down their

Convention officials said Saturday that alternative housing for delegates was being considered, as well as different transportation arrangements. Many delegates are staying near beaches, and many have to cross low-lying bridges to reach the Tampa Bay Times Forum, the convention site in downtown Tampa. Officials were confident the convention would proceed later in the week. “We are operationally ready to run this convention

TAMPA, Fla. — With Tropical Storm Isaac churning toward Florida, the Republican National Convention canceled its Monday program and is aiming to start its major business Tuesday. Officials announced the change Saturday evening, after a tropical storm watch was posted for the Tampa Bay area. The watch means winds of up to 73 miles an hour can be expected within 48 hours. Florida Gov. Rick Scott declared a state of emergency Saturday throughout Florida, as 50,000 delegates, media and others began pouring into the region. The convention was supposed to open at 2 p.m. Monday, about the time the storm’s fury is expected to be near its peak. Instead, the convention will quickly convene and then recess Monday, and try to come back Tuesday, though Isaac’s rain and winds could still pose problems. A new schedule is likely to be announced Sunday, and the roll call of the states to nominate Mitt Romney for president and Paul Ryan for vice president is expected to occur Tuesday afternoon instead of Monday. “We’re hoping we’ll be able to get as many of the speakers we’ve been announcing over the last several days packed into three days instead of four,” said Republican Party Chairman Reince Priebus in a conference call with reporters late Saturday. The main Monday attraction, a speech by Mitt Romney’s wife Ann, had already been moved to Tuesday night so that broadcast networks would

events and help raise money for possible hurricane victims. As the weather threatened havoc, Romney and President Barack Obama continued to spar Saturday in the hours leading up to the convention. Romney was in Columbus, Ohio, where he and running mate Paul Ryan tried to paint themselves as champions of women. “Women need our help,” Romney said as he discussed women entrepreneurs. Obama chided Romney for extreme views. “I can’t speak to Governor Romney’s motivations,” he said in an interview with the Associated Press, reported Saturday. “What I can say is that he has signed up for positions, extreme positions, that are very consistent with positions that a number of House Republicans have taken. And whether he actually believes in those or not, I have no doubt that he would carry forward some of the things that he’s talked about.” Democrats have been blasting Republicans for their plan to dramatically change Medicare, the health care program for seniors and some disabled people, and adopt policies making it much more difficult for women to obtain abortions. The Romney campaign fired back by citing another part of the interview, in which Obama conceded, “We aren’t where we need to be. Everybody agrees with that.” “President Obama concedes that ‘we aren’t where we need to be.’ Mitt Romney and Paul Ryan agree,” said Romney spokesman Ryan Williams. “The American people know they aren’t better off than they were four years ago.”

Path to UA filled with hurdles Megyn Fitzgerald Arizona Daily Wildcat


irst off, welcome back to the grind, Wildcats! The second week of school has officially commenced and thank God the first week is finally done with. For freshmen, the first week might have been jarring. I know how you feel. I just transferred from Pima Community College, and the transition has been stressful. I wish someone had warned me about how difficult it would be to get from my lab in the Louise F. Marshall building to my next class in the Harvill building in 10 minutes. It’s pretty much impossible without running, which is also pretty much impossible in this heat. I also probably wasn’t the only one who was shocked that parking can cost $10 a day in a garage, which is necessary to avoid feeling like I’ve parked my precious Volkswagen on the surface of the sun. On Monday, I fought my way into an 8 a.m. French 101 class, paid far too much to park, and had to struggle through buying books. After navigating through the thousands of students milling around the lower level of the UofA Bookstore and actually finding my books, I was relocated to a total of five checkout lines. Before this, I didn’t even realize that there were five checkout lines in the bookstore to be relocated to. I find it hard to believe that, with all the millions the UA must make off of its parking garages, it can’t afford a sign telling the new kids which line they should be standing in. To add insult to injury, after leaving the bookstore, I had to wait for nearly 45 minutes to exit the parking garage. On Tuesday, since I no longer had to stress about getting into a French class, fate decided to throw an even more interesting curve ball my way. I actually sat outside of my classroom for an hour while waiting for my 3 p.m. class to begin, only to find that the class actually began at 2 p.m. So, not only did I miss nearly the entire class, but I was only a few feet away from it the whole time. Just sitting there. Talk about shitty. On Wednesday, my school week effectively came to an end. I guess I wasn’t prepared for all the long hours, walking from place to place and ridiculous Arizona heat, because the week ended with my being rushed to the emergency room in the back of an ambulance. While in my kitchen that evening, I was struck with sudden nausea and tunnel vision. I knew what was coming next, but decided to try to fight it. Not my best idea. The next thing I knew, I was convulsing on the tile floor with a splitting headache and, to my dismay, my roommate calling 911 in the background. I found out once I arrived at the ER that I had blacked out due to a sudden drop in blood pressure. After several electrocardiograms, CT scans and some blood work, they were able to tell me that they couldn’t find anything wrong and that my blackout could probably be chalked up to stress. Touché, university. In other words, I was just as confused and bruised as I was before my trip to the ER, but I was also now several thousand dollars poorer. I guess what I’m trying to say is that transferring should be easier for the newbies. There are far too many hoops to jump through for it to be left up to the student to find their own way. I, for one, was too busy working to attend any seminars or convocations. For those of you in a similar situation, heed my advice: Avoid scheduling classes only 10 minutes apart. Study your schedule. Invest in a bike or go broke trying to park. And, last but not least, order your textbooks online and avoid the lower level of the bookstore altogether. Needless to say, so far university is everything I’d hoped it wouldn’t be. I’d be lying if I said I didn’t miss the simplicity of Pima. — Megyn Fitzgerald is a journalism major.

Your views

In response to “Bullying won’t help the voters” (Aug. 23): So nice to have the Wildcat back on newsstands! Welcome back! [Thursday’s] editorial by Dan Desrochers, “Bullying won’t help the voters,” rightly focused on problems in the current presidential race. But it did not go far enough. Dan could take one more step on the way to responsible journalism by pointing out that voters have more presidential choices than just the Democratic and Republican

candidates. If you are sick and tired of the bullying, then do something to suck their power away. While the two major political parties are throwing boatloads of cash into the media to sling mud, at least three other candidates are out there, struggling to gain even a mention that they are also in the race. Check out Dr. Jill Stein of the Green Party, or Rocky Anderson of the Justice Party who served as Salt Lake City’s mayor, or Libertarian Gary Johnson.

The Wildcat could take one more step. Be a fresh new journalistic voice by calling for Instant Runoff Voting to replace the failed Winner Take All system we currently use. With the IRV system, used by sports teams and inside some Republican clubs, voters rank order their choices (first, second, third...). If, after the first vote count, no candidate receives a clear majority, the candidate with the lowest number of votes is eliminated and all the voters who picked that one as their

first choice get their first vote thrown out and their second choice counted instead. Those reapportioned votes are then tallied, and if there is still not a clear majority winner, the process repeats. It is fair, it costs nothing more, it eliminates the need for run-off contests, and it reflects voters’ true preferences. Thanks for your work and best wishes for a successful semester! — Mary DeCamp, UA alumna

Editorial: Higher enrollment means higher expectations N

ot unexpectedly, the UA is “setting records for freshman enrollment, academic preparedness and ethnic diversity.” This isn’t unexpected because it seems to happen every year. The Office of University Communications rewrites a UANews article about higher freshman enrollment every fall semester. If it wanted to save itself some time, it could probably keep a template of the same article to pull out every August. This year, the UA admitted 7,450 freshmen — up from 7,300 last year and 7,025 the year before that. “We are thrilled to welcome the largest freshman class to date,” President Ann Weaver Hart said in the UANews article. “This year’s freshmen are more prepared than ever to take on the academic rigors of the university. We look forward to their many successes here.” Yep. The template is easy to follow: “Look how big the numbers

are. [Insert canned quote by current UA president about growth and academic success.] These Wildcats made the right choice.” True enough. In a post-recession economy, with families questioning the costs and benefits of higher education, college is clearly, definitely worth it. A recent study by Georgetown University’s Center on Education and the Workforce examined the effects of the recession and recovery by education level, gender, industry and occupation, and concluded that it may be a tough job market for college graduates, but it is much worse for those with less than a postsecondary education. Most jobs lost during and after the recession were held by workers with no education beyond high school, the report found. Gains made during the recovery were by workers with at least some post-secondary schooling.

“For workers, the findings point the way to acquiring the skills that the market needs and values,” the report concludes. “For students and their parents who are contemplating whether higher education is a good value, these findings make clear that the answer is a resounding yes.” Cool. So newly enrolled students at the UA are on the right track. That said, with higher enrollment numbers come higher expectations. The freshmen have a “strong academic background,” UANews reports. The average GPA is 3.44, up from last year’s 3.41. The average SAT score in math and critical reading is 1117, up from 1109. More students are enrolling in science, technology, engineering and math fields. More than 39 percent of this year’s freshman class identify as an ethnic minority. While the UA is typically eager to brag about greater enrollment, increased diversity of admitted freshmen and better grade point

averages or SAT scores, it’s important to look forward to what to do with those numbers. What will retention rates look like after this year, when these new freshmen are statistically most likely to drop out? What percentage of them will graduate with a degree, and how many years will it take them to do so? What percentage of those graduates with degrees will identify as minorities? Although a larger, more diverse and academically successful freshman class is a solid start, the UA sings that song every August. It’s time to change the tune. — Editorials are determined by the Daily Wildcat editorial board and written by one of its members. They are Bethany Barnes, Kristina Bui, Jason Krell, K.C.

Police Beat YAZMINE MOORE Arizona Daily Wildcat

You can take it to the bank

University of Arizona Police Department officers responded to a fire alarm at 4:32 p.m. on Aug. 18. The alarm went off at Manzanita-Mohave Residence Hall, with the strong smell of burned popcorn coming from the women’s wing on the fifth floor. Once the Tucson Fire Department arrived, they were able to use a master key to open the room where the smell was coming from. TFD checked the surrounding rooms but they were clear of the odor. Officers discovered that the 19-year-old female student who lived in the room had burned popcorn. After the alarm went off, she took the bag of popcorn to the Chase Bank across the street and threw it away. An officer found the bag and identified that it was no longer a fire hazard.

Jack and Mary Jane

UAPD arrived at Posada San Pedro Residence Hall at 2:19 a.m. on Aug. 18 after being informed that an odor of marijuana was coming from the third floor. A resident assistant who was conducting rounds had noticed the odor. Once officers arrived at the scene, they also noticed the odor. An 18-year-old student walked up and opened the door. The smell immediately entered the hallway. One of the officers asked to speak with the first resident in the hall, while the second officer spoke with the roommate inside. When asked, the first resident admitted to having smoked marijuana before. He then said that both he and his roommate had medical marijuana cards. The officer informed him that even though they had cards, medical marijuana is not allowed on campus. The resident said that the last time he smoked was in California, before he came to Arizona. When asked if the officer could search his room, the resident said no. The roommate told the officer he could search through his belongings. The officer didn’t find any illegal drugs, but did find a 1.75 liter bottle of Jack Daniel’s whiskey in the refrigerator. The resident said that it was his and that he had bought it two days before his roommate moved in. The officer informed him that alcohol is not allowed in the dorm and that he cannot possess alcohol since he is under the age of 21. The resident was referred through Dean of Students to Student Diversion with a minor in possession of alcohol.

Six shots, two tests, one man

UAPD responded to a DUI at 12:50 a.m. on Aug. 18. after the driver of a white Dodge Dakota almost hit a bicyclist on Park Avenue. When the officer arrived at the scene, the driver was parked in the alley facing Arizona-Sonora Residence Hall. The officer who witnessed the incident suspected that the driver was under the influence due to his erratic driving. A second officer spoke with the driver, who said he was driving some girls home from a house party. The officer reported that the driver had watery, bloodshot eyes and his breath smelled of alcohol. After the officers ran a sobriety test, the driver admitted to consuming six shots of vodka and then driving while under the age of 21. His vehicle was towed and will be impounded for 30 days. The officer arrested the driver for DUI in the slightest degree, double handcuffed him and transported him to UAPD headquarters. The driver then took two breath tests, one coming out to .142 and another to .138 six minutes later. After the tests were complete, the driver was notified of his results and taken home.

and sometimes troubling

The Comedy Is Finished

ANDREW CONLOGUE Arizona Daily Wildcat

Donald E. Westlake was one of the most prolific crime novelists of all time. Though he may be less well known than contemporary Elmore Leonard, he is recognized as a truly first-rate writer of crime fiction, having been awarded the Grand Master Award, the Mystery Writers of America’s highest honor. After his death in 2008, the world never expected to experience a brand new masterwork from him. But now, one last time, a new Westlake tale has been released. The plot seems almost innocent in an abbreviated description. In the years following the excesses of the ’60s, Koo Davis, America’s favorite comedian, has found himself less well-liked for

being a vocal hawk on Vietnam. Not usually one to discuss politics, his foray into public commentary proves to be a big mistake when a group of five anti-American revolutionaries kidnaps Davis. What follows is a game of cat and mouse between the violent kidnappers and American law enforcement, with Davis right in the middle. If it sounds a little zany, take the cover at face value. This book is sexy, violent and sometimes troubling. The provocative cover is actually a little understated compared to the graphic nature of the book. Though it isn’t necessarily in good taste, the luridness of “The Comedy Is Finished” is not mere filler. Flowing through the bloodshed is deep, meaningful narration. Every character, from the burned-out but determined leftist activists to the hardnosed

FBI agent leading the negotiations, is given a very real identity. Originally written in the 1980s, the book deals with a time when the wounds of war were still fresh. It would have been easy for Westlake to turn the People’s Revolutionary Army members into pinko cardboard cutouts, but despite their extreme and delusional beliefs, the reader can still find some empathy for them. That, in the end, is one of the best and most interesting parts of “The Comedy Is Finished.” It’s fascinating to view the kidnappers as Westlake paints them, as combatants in what they perceive as a necessary conflict. The law enforcement personnel trying to track them are the same way. The leftist revolutionaries are used to fighting a war with their own people, and though they must now fight one last battle, the

real war has already been won and lost. Nobody feels this dichotomy more acutely than Davis. He’s a veteran of USO tours in WWII and Korea, and can’t understand why Vietnam was any different than those “just” conflicts. His outdated politics reflect his age, both physically and ideologically. In the hands of the communist menace that his generation has been programmed to fear, Davis is bound to learn a lot about himself and what he is. Whether he lives to change his ways is another story altogether. “The Comedy Is Finished” is a rare beast in that it is a truly intelligent social commentary buried in a heart-pounding crime thriller. It reads well, it sits well later on, and whether or not it ends well is worth reading to find out.



Ariel Pink gets weird with tragicomic album Mature Themes

Indie tunes: mope away



Arizona Daily Wildcat

Arizona Daily Wildcat

About a third of the way through “Symphony of the Nymph,” the psychotic highlighting track from proto-hipster Ariel Pink’s Haunted Graffiti’s Mature Themes, something strange happens: Pink and his abstract musings begin to make sense. The beginning of the song meanders along like a lovesick teen at a skating rink, finding Pink leading his band through lyrical gems like “She’s a nympho / At the discotheque, / Dr. Mario, / Colonoscopist” with a straight face before conceding, “My name is Ariel, and I’m a nympho.” The last is sung with more conviction and earnestness than any other lyric on the album. It makes you believe that perhaps the cracked-out genius of Mature Themes is concealing an attempt at working through deeper psycho-sexual conflicts. But then Pink follows up with a bridge in which he sings “I don’t mean to burn no bridges / But I can’t get enough of those bitches” over the sound of galloping horses. It’s this juxtaposition of the genuine and the silly that characterizes the entire record, ultimately placing Pink alongside artists like Paul Westerberg and Frank Zappa as a master of the tragicomic. While “Symphony of the Nymph” is perhaps the best example of Pink’s uncanny ability to cycle between the lighthearted and the disturbingly intimate, in every track Pink churns out catchy ’60s pop with the best of them. On the whole Pink doesn’t deviate much from his tried and true style of melodic lo-fi, such as the title track that straddles the line between The Soft Bulletin-era The Flaming Lips and ’70s soft rock like Bread or America. Other cuts like the murderous “Kinski Assassin” or “Is This The Best Spot?”, an aptly-titled paean to the elusive G-spot, teem with hummable melodies that Pink hilariously insists on singing as if he is the world’s worst Beatles impersonator. In fact, The Fab Four’s influence is on display all throughout the record, from the carefullyconstructed song bridges and choruses to “Schnitzel Boogie,” which sounds like the late-Beatles nervous breakdowns Paul McCartney never wrote. As with the tragicomic elements of “Symphony of the Nymph,” Mature Themes is at its best when it sounds like Pink has something to say. For this reason, songs like the perfect folk-rock “Only In My Dreams” fare better than the charming but ultimately superficial “Pink Slime” or “Early Birds of Babylon.” Undoubtedly the most interesting sequencing on the album belongs to the final two songs. Penultimate track “Nostradamus & Me” abandons pop structures in favor of a wistfully ethereal take on drugged-out jam music, as if the demons Pink has spent the entire album facing have finally taken over not only his thoughts, but his songwriting as well. For seven and a half minutes, an insistent bass guitar seems to be the only thing keeping Pink in our world as he threatens to disappear at any moment. Ultimately, the album ends with a reverent cover of Donnie and Joe Emerson’s “Baby,” a final, revealing wink from Pink who seems content to stay in the world of pop — at least for now.

I remember the exact moment I became a hipster. It was just a coming of age moment comparable to losing my virginity or that first hazy night in college and its subsequent hangover. Hipsterdom and indie music swept into my life in the most cliché of ways — coffee, cigarettes and clouds were all involved. As it well should, the feel-bad music is what molded me into an unaware music snob at the ripe age of 14. My mentor introduced me to the likes of Maritime, The Album Leaf and The Appleseed Cast. Retrospectively, his choices were about as emo-tinged as they come, but they still held the

Death Cab For Cutie — “Tiny Vessels,” from 2003’s Transatlanticism Ben Gibbard is a goddamn wizard. Death Cab, from its earliest material, helped to define the feel-bad music that indie embraced with open arms from the early 2000s on. “Tiny Vessels” is a track from Death Cab’s 2003 album that has Gibbard crooning in his rawest state, reflecting on his promiscuity with such honesty that Casanova himself would have blushed. Couple this emotiveness with Gibbard’s references to Los Angeles’ super-chic Silver Lake neighborhood (ahead of the times there, Ben) and the chiming guitars that layer the entire track, and you’ve got a rainy day melody that should have you rifling through memories of your ex like a meth addict through cold medicine bottles.

elements of fresh music that I hadn’t developed yet. Later on, I’d discover that the ironic jadedness I was brewing inside had manifested in the lyrics to half of Bright Eyes’ songs. Conor Oberst can be credited with contributing to folk revival, but the anger with which he delivers his tunes had him left just outside of the public’s open arms for bands like Modest Mouse in the 2000s. Indie pop isn’t just Zooey Deschanel covering The Smiths, nor is it Bon Iver’s philosophy or even the god-awfully overstuffed Arcade Fire. There are roots to indie music that have a lot more frustration and yearning ­— and these three songs embody that antipathy all too well.

Maritime ­— “Human Beings,” from 2004’s Glass Floor

Bright Eyes ­— “Four Winds,” from 2007’s Cassadaga

Unrequited love seemed to be a pretty common theme in the melancholy of earlier indie pop, and Maritime, of Milwaukee, Wis., was no exception. “Human Beings,” from the band’s breakout album Glass Floor, is the perfect example of an ironic admonition of fleeting love, highlighted by a brilliant little Icarus reference in the first verse. At the time, Maritime embodied the heavy introspection and jangle-y, angular pop that is nothing if not an evolution of Morrissey’s musical styling. The Smiths might have concocted “Human Beings” themselves, favoring Davey von Bohlen’s bubblegum pop breathiness over Morrissey’s dour tone.

Though we’re only five years past the release of Bright Eyes’ lukewarmly received Cassadaga, the album’s lead single still evokes the time when the whole world seemed to resent the Bush administration, when Oberst was playing fuck-you anthems to the president and when he found himself denouncing religion with “Four Winds.” Set to a country-tinged instrumental, replete with singing fiddle, Oberst rips through organized religion of all forms, leaving no feather unruffled with the line, “The Bible’s blind, the Torah’s deaf, the Qu’ran’s mute/If you burn them all together, you get close to the truth.” Fiery as ever, “Four Winds” ends on the note of Oberst making peace with religion’s fallacies, a bittersweet end to a supremely bitter song. The tune is not for the conservative of heart, but it’s a nice piece of voiced frustration from a man whose lyrical ability makes Bible burning a total sing-along moment.

vital. Maiava said the extra time has helped him build his confidence, even though he didn’t think he’d already be challenging for the spot as a redshirt freshman. “(Ebbele) is good, he’s really good,” Maiava said. “He’s a big guy with a lot of experience and everything … It’s up to the person that brings the ‘A’ game every time. It’s pretty tough for me to compete against a really experienced O-lineman.” However, Ebbele’s off-the-field issues are worth considering, especially his involvement in a campus-area brawl in March that ended in Ebbele being charged with assault and criminal trespassing. All of the charges were eventually dropped, and Ebbele said the experience helped him improve his decision-making skills and ultimately allowed him to become more mature. “He’s really matured and [is] starting to emerge as one of the younger leaders on the team and his presence … is felt every time he’s out there on the field with us,” Quinn said. Ebbele’s dedication to the team is a sign of that maturity, as he said he never thought about transferring during the suspension. “That’s one thing I wasn’t going to do,” Ebbele said. “I wasn’t going to quit.

Right Tackle, 9

In the week before school started, the Arizona men’s basketball team traveled to the Bahamas and stayed at the Atlantis Paradise Island resort for a brief exhibition tour. Toward the end of the trip, head coach Sean Miller tweeted a picture of senior forward Solomon Hill shirtless on the beach. “Not too many college basketball players have worked harder this off season than this guy – hard to recognize!” Miller tweeted. The picture showed a significant physical change in Hill from how he had looked at the end of the Wildcats’ disappointing National Invitational Tournament season in March. The thinner, leaner Hill dedicated himself to eating the right way in the offseason as he transitioned back to his natural small forward position, rather than the undersized power forward role he played for last season’s team. “I’ve been watching and changing what I eat,” Hill said. “No more fast food, no more late night snacking.” The addition of 7-footer freshman Kaleb Tarczewski, coupled with the progression of the 6-foot-9 sophomore shot-blocking specialist Angelo Chol, allowed Hill to move back to the “three” spot in the rotation, which means two things above all else for Hill. “I have to guard little guys now,” Hill said. “They (Tarczewski and Chol) can bang with those big guys. “No more taking the ball out. Now we have guys who have set jobs. It relaxes me mentally.” Hill, who is listed at 6-foot7, averaged 12.9 points per game and led Arizona with 7.7 rebounds and 2.6 assists per game for the Wildcats, who lost to Bucknell in the first round of the NIT.

Offensive Line ZACK ROSENBLATT Arizona Daily Wildcat

In the 5 days leading up to the Wildcats’ season opener against Toledo on Sept. 1, the Daily Wildcat will preview each position on Arizona’s roster, alternating between offense and defense. Projected Starters: Mickey Baucus (sophomore), Chris Putton (junior), Kyle Quinn (senior), Trace Biskin (senior), Fabbians Ebbele (sophomore) Backups: Lene Maiava (freshman), Eric BenderRamsay (junior), Trent Spurgeon (sophomore), Addison Bachman (senior), Zach Hemmila (freshman), Shane Zink (Senior) Departures: Jacob Arzouman (knee injury, out for season), Jack Baucus (injury, retirement) Returning stat leaders: Quinn — 12 starts, Ebbele — 12 starts, Baucus — 12 starts, Biskin — 10 starts, Putton — 9 starts, Zink — 3 starts Heading into 2011, the inexperience of the offensive line was a major concern. The Wildcats’ most experienced starter at the time was thenjunior center Kyle Quinn — with one career start. Junior Trace Biskin, sophomore Chris Putton and freshmen Fabbians Ebbele and Mickey Baucus had a combined goose egg of starting experience, having

The move back to small forward comes after a season in which Hill says the Wildcats were “punched in the mouth” against Bucknell, and other games were lost because of Arizona’s lack of size in the paint. In order to make room for Tarczewski and Chol, who will get a significant bump in playing time this season after averaging 12.2 minutes per game in his freshman campaign, Hill had to get into better shape, starting with his diet — but don’t expect to see him cooking on the Food Network anytime soon. “Some days I’ll cook,” Hill said. “I’m learning from my roommates. I like the things that are easy to make.” Aside from a healthy breakfast, Hill keeps the cooking simple, often making a turkey burger or baked chicken – along with “fruit, but no juice.” His commitment to his diet and workout regimen has resulted in a noticeable difference in his conditioning and running, which will help him not only defensively against wing players, but also offensively in terms of running the floor in fast break situations. “I watch him run and move, and he’s better than ever before,” Miller said. “Solomon doesn’t get enough credit for how hard he’s worked. Physically he’s changed as dramatically as I’ve seen. I’m anxious for him to be able to play natural position on a good team.” Hill’s move to the wing, coupled with his tenacity under the basket and ability to get to loose balls, can only help a Wildcats team that now has “depth and size in big men,” Miller said. “It’s a stepping stone to where I want to be,” Hill added. “Just to get ready for conditioning, that alone will carry me to where I need to be.”

never started a single collegiate football game before last year. Now all five starters return, armed with the experience they earned through the struggles of last year. The line was widely criticized last season because of its inexperience, but all things considered the players actually did a decent job. As a unit, Arizona gave up 23 sacks, which was good enough for fourth-best in the Pac-12 behind Oregon, Stanford and USC. Ebbele, the mammoth 6-foot-8, 310-pound right tackle, received Sporting News Freshman All-America honors. Oddly, Ebbele is the one lineman from last year’s starters still fighting for his starting job, as he dukes it out with redshirt freshman Lene Maiava. Quinn, who was an AllPac-12 honorable mention last year, and Biskin are the senior stabilizers on the line and two of the overall team leaders, and Putton brings athleticism and versatility to the position thanks to his ability to play at left tackle. The 6-foot-8 Baucus might have the most important job on the Wildcats roster: protecting quarterback Matt Scott’s blindside. The inexperience behind Scott at the quarterback position makes it imperative for the line, and Baucus in particular, to keep him clean and protected. All in all, as long as it remains healthy and keeps its quarterback safe, the offensive line should be one of the more consistent performers for Arizona this upcoming season.

During the summer the Wildcats spent a lot of time in the gym getting stronger and better prepared for the season. “I focused a lot in the gym this summer and tried to get a lot stronger and fitter,” Urquidi said. “The season is such a grind and you really have to be ready physically before you get on the court.” When the fall season gets in full swing, players are expected to play two matches every weekend for the whole semester. After fall individual tournaments are finished, the spring brings NCAA conference play and playoffs. “I would be really disappointed if we didn’t make the NCAA tournament this year,” Berkowitz said. “It’s a step-by-step process.

Arizona goes 2-1 in Wildcat Classic EMI KOMIYA Arizona Daily Wildcat


Larry Hogan / Arizona Daily Wildcat

Outside Hitter Taylor Arizobal, No. 14, and the rest of the UA volleyball team play against Cal State Northridge on Friday, Aug.24 in the Wildcat Classic.

Arizona hit the ground running in its first game of the season Friday morning, winning 3-0 (25-19, 25-20, 25-14), against Evansville in the opening match of the Wildcat Classic at McKale Center. Freshmen starting middle blockers Halli Amaro and Olivia Magill contributed to Arizona’s first win of the season, helping offset the absence of sophomore blocker Rachel Rhoades, who was sidelined from a concussion injury. Rhoades dressed and warmed up but did not see the court. “I thought there were some aspects of the game that were very good,” head coach Dave Rubio said. “We served well and passed well and defended well.” Sophomore outside hitters Madi Kingdon and Taylor Arizobal had a combined 31 kills in the match, with starting junior setter Chanel Brown facilitating the offense in garnering 41 total assists. “The team is really in a position

that as time goes on we’ll be a different team every week,” Rubio said.

Cal State Northridge

The Wildcats fell to the Cal State Northridge Matadors in their second match, losing 3-2 in five sets (25-23, 25-22, 24-26, 21-25, 9-15) Friday night. “We gave them a lot of opportunities by making several unforced errors,” head coach Dave Rubio said. The match was back and forth as the Wildcats struggled to maintain possession of the ball, garnering 10 service errors and staggering both offensively and defensively after the second set. “For this group everything is an experience, you hope and you wish that your team can fight and experience something like this and still win,” Rubio said. “Unfortunately that wasn’t the case and it was our first tough lesson learned.” Kingdon and Arizobal combined for 50 kills and Amaro had a breakout game, including a swing off the slide back set connecting repeatedly with junior setter Chanel Brown (59 assists). Amaro totaled nine kills and

five digs in the match. Rubio said he was very impressed with how well the team played in the first two sets. Rhoades was finally cleared to play against Cal State Northridge. The sophomore middle blocker made her first appearance late in the first set and immediately made an impact with a block in the next play. By the third set, she was back in the lineup.

Utah Valley

The UA wrapped up the Wildcat Classic at McKale Center with a 3-0 (25-16, 25-15, 25-17) victory over Utah Valley on Saturday night. After coming up short in the Friday night loss to Cal State Northridge, Arizona’s young lineup bounced back in a big way in its second victory of the season. Even though the Wildcats took the win from Utah Valley, head coach Dave Rubio said the play could have been cleaner and more efficient. “We’ve got some work to do, there’s no question that we have some room and we’re just starting

Arizona soccer wins first game of season, finally ends its losing streak tory until 13 games in. This weekend’s victory broke the nine-game losing streak extending from last season with the first It was a mid-field showcase win for the team since Oct. 7, in Flagstaff on Sunday, as junior 2011, which was another shutout mid-fielders Susana Melendez performance against Oregon, and and Ana-Maria Montoya led the the first time the Wildcats scored Wildcats to a shutout victory over three goals in a match since Sept. the NAU Lumberjacks 3-0. “It feels good to get the first win 12, 2010. The Wildcats came out strong of the season,” head coach Lisa in the first half with a consistent Oyen said. “To be three games in and have a multitude of shots to be attack effort. With less than eight minutes remaining in the game, able to finish, it’s an off-take-ish junior mid-fielder Susana Melenfeeling because we worked really dez scored off a soft header giving hard to come out with a win.” Arizona the early lead 1-0. A win three games into the With about four minutes left in season is a far cry from how things the first half, junior mid-fielder went in 2011.

ish) and it’s rough. I just get myself to think, ‘If it gives me a pound or two its gonna be worth it,’ so I’ll just force myself to finish the protein shake or the meal.” Denker feels that most people consider the “ideal” quarterback to be in the 6-foot-4, 200-plus pound range, but he was just concerned with getting to a weight that would allow him to take hits from Division I-level defenders. “I still need to put on some weight but I just wanted to be where I could withstand a full season,” Denker said about his decision to redshirt. “Not get injured, take a hit. That’s what everyone’s worried about. I just needed to be healthy, at a healthy weight that I could survive.” His decision paid off. After his redshirt season, he passed for 2,319 yards and 31 touchdowns, and ran for an additional 420 yards and seven touchdowns. When Denker came to Tucson on a visit in the spring, he walked

right into a perfect situation, as at the time there were just two walk-on quarterbacks behind Scott. Rodriguez and his coaching staff were admittedly desperate for bodies at the position. Also, his skill set fit Rodriguez’s spread option offense to a T, as it tends to require a mobile quarterback at the helm. “He kind of fell on us,” Rodriguez said. “We were looking for another quarterback and we were hoping to try and find another experienced guy, but B.J. was a guy that was kind of under the radar. Nobody knew about him. He wasn’t overly recruited in junior college but we liked what we saw on film. “When he came on his visit we just thought, ‘This is a good guy and he’d be a good fit.’” It was a match made in heaven for Denker. “When I was sent on my visit, (Rodriguez) said they wanted me,” Denker said. “That’s all I needed to hear. That’s been my dream (to play in the Pac-12), and Rich Rod and this offense, it’s fun to play in. So that’s all I needed to hear.”

side, giving the Wildcats momentum as they headed into the half with a 2-0 lead. Arizona ended the half with 10 shots, five of which were on goal. NAU took three shots in the first half. In effort to change things up and stop Arizona from scoring any more goals in the second half, NAU brought in back-up goalkeeper Natalie Gilbertson. The Wildcats came out with a strong answer to the lineup change in just under three minutes of the second half. Montoya lined up for a mid-field free kick and lobbed it just over Gilbertson’s head in the upper right corner, putting Arizona in a commanding 3-0 lead the rest of the game. “Ana-Maria’s goals were gorgeous,” Oyen said. “She hit those

so well with a lot of confidence. That’s the thing we have been talking to our players about, when we have those situations, to be composed and confident and take their time in hitting them. It’s a balance between a lot of focus and being relaxed and doing what you want to do with the ball. ” With Montoya’s two goals, she already tied last year’s team-leading total of Jazmin Ponce, who scored two goals on the season. As a team, the Wildcats scored seven goals all of last season, a total which they are just three goals away from matching this year. The Wildcats almost scored a fourth goal with just minutes left in the game, but the referee waved it off after NAU’s goalkeeper Gilbertson went down hard.

he’s returned to his form from last season. “I’m back, I’m in rhythm,” Ebbele said. “I feel great and I’m making great strides and everything like that. And I feel real good.” Ebbele said the challenge for his right tackle job helped motivate and drive him to improve. And even though Ebbele is back to full strength, and his start Friday during the scrimmage is a good indication he’ll be there come game day, Maiava still isn’t

Q What are my benefits through the Affordable Care Act? I heard there is no fee or copay for birth control. Is this true? A. Provisions of the Affordable Care Act (ACA), approved by Congress and signed into law by President Obama in 2010, are being phased in from 2010-2014. Some are already in effect. Many students have benefitted from the ACA, since they can now remain on their parent’s insurance plans until the age of 26. Previously, insurance plans could drop young adults at age 19. The ACA protects people with disabilities by prohibiting health plans from putting a lifetime dollar limit on most benefits. Also, pre-existing health conditions (like asthma or diabetes) no longer exclude children under 19 years of age from receiving health care coverage. Eight women’s preventive services that will be covered under the ACA (no out-of-pocket costs to the individual) for policies renewing on or after August 1, 2012, include: • Contraception and contraceptive counseling • Well-woman visits (gynecology exam) • HPV DNA testing (pap test)

• STD counseling • Interpersonal and domestic violence screening and counseling • HIV screening and counseling • Gestational diabetes screening • Breastfeeding support, supplies, and counseling What does that mean for female UA students on birth control? If you have the Arizona Board of Regents Student Health Insurance Plan administered by Aetna, you are now eligible to get your birth control pills, Depo-Provera, Nuva-Ring, etc. without a co-pay. Check out and search for “preventive care.” If you have a different insurance plan, chances are you’ll have to wait to take advantage of the cost savings. The women’s preventive services coverage kicks in at the start of your new plan year (and most insurances renew in January).
