Asbestos present in UA campus buildings By Rikki Mitchell ARIZONA DAILY WILDCAT A list from the Department of Risk Management and Safety shows that at least 14 buildings around campus contain asbestos for a variety of purposes. According to the department, asbestos materials pose no threat to building inhabitants if they are left intact. However, there is a potential threat if the materials become damaged and

airborne, where inhabitants could inhale them. “If you inhale those fibers, because of their strength they don’t break down in the body,” said Herbert Wagner, associate director of the Department of Risk Management and Safety. “They attach themselves to the epithelia layer of the lungs and sort of stick there.” Asbestos is a group of minerals that is very strong and resistant to heat and chemicals. Many older buildings use

asbestos materials for fireproofing as well as in insulation pipes, acoustical decorative ceilings, flooring and roofing materials. “It does not burn,” Wagner said. “It became a very popular building material because of that physical nature.” The Department of Risk Management and Safety did a survey in the early 1980s to find out where all asbestos materials are located on campus. Wagner said this knowledge could

be used to manage disturbances that could occur. All maintenance personnel on campus are trained to know what asbestos looks like and when to report any kind of disturbance, he said. “Anytime that maintenance activities or construction or demolition activities involve disturbing or potentially disturbing the asbestos, we go ahead and have it removed safely by an asbestos company that can come in and safely

and properly remove it before we have the opportunity to get involved with it,” Wagner said. Since 1975, the Environmental Protection Agency as well as the Occupational Safety and Health Administration have stopped new buildings from using asbestos. The newer buildings on campus have no asbestos, Wagner said. However, he added, some buildings ASBESTOS, page 6

Israel Shulte, a physical education senior, and Vishal Ganesan, a classics junior, enjoy hookah outside Espresso Art on University Boulevard on Sept. 3. Espresso Art offers hookah from noon outside and 6 p.m. inside until closing at midnight.

By Angel Allen ARIZONA DAILY WILDCAT It’s a beautiful evening and you’re puffing smoke rings with your friends, but while the fruit punch taste you inhale may be sweet and relaxing, officials say it comes with the cloudy possibility of future illness. Hookahs are single or multiple stemmed water pipes used to smoke tobacco. They continue to be a popular fixture around the UA campus. But health officials say many students remain ignorant of the ill health effects of shisha, the flavored tobacco smoked in hookahs. A May report issued by the Journal of

Adolescent Health said hookah use is incresing among college students, despite growing consensus that it may be as dangerous as cigarettes. Hirbod Jalili, a Pima Community College computer sciences student from Iran, said he grew up smoking hookah, starting at age 14. In Iran,“there’s no age for it, anyone can do it. It’s a tradition,” he said. Usually families and friends smoke together as a relaxing hobby, Jalili said. Tea and dates are often served along with the hookah as complementary items. Hacène Chaouch, an optical engineering graduate student from Algeria, said, “We know it’s harmful and it’s not the reason we

get together, but it’s something to do when we are together. It’s social.” Local café Espresso Art, 944 E. University Blvd., offers hookah smoking starting from noon outside and 6 p.m. inside until closing at midnight each evening. Owner Danny Mannheim said he enjoys offering an international feel to his café. Mannheim said his café is usually filled with students, professors, Middle Easterners, among others, who choose between 20 shisha flavors, including peach, mint and grape. A hookah session generally lasts 45 to 80 minutes, depending on how many people are HOOKAH, page 12

The long-awaited campus-wide information technology overhaul known as the Mosaic project is finally nearing completion, at least in part. In coming months, much of the behind-the-scenes computing that allows an enormous and complex institution like the UA will be updated to meet the demands of a university in the 21st century. Yesterday, the Arizona Daily Wildcat examined how this overhaul will affect UA employees. Today, we look at changes to the system that will affect students. Students frustrated with the delays and confusion caused by Student Link may have something to look forward to when they register for classes next semester. The main changes students can expect to see will be new software to manage room and course scheduling, said Tom Bourgeois , co-director of student administration for Mosaic. These changes, he said, are “not glamorous, but it’s the foundation.” Other changes will include software that manages the university’s curriculum, like course changes or new courses, and providing more current information in the online catalogue. Professors generally begin to prepare for fall classes a year in advance, so the project will implement catalogue changes now in order for them to be trained as soon as possible, Bourgeois said. Students will not see an impact when signing up for classes this spring, but will for fall 2010, as the Web site for Student Link retains its old URL but originates from a different source, known MOSAIC, page 6

ASUA green program is growing like a weed By Marissa Hopkins ARIZONA DAILY WILDCAT The ASUA Sustainability program had 15 regular volunteers at its conception last year. With the start of a new sustainability internship program this year, there will be 53 students working regularly toward sustainability at the UA — and getting credit for it. Sustainability Director Lesley Ash said she and Brendan Nuriddin, the associate director and architecture senior, developed the internship program over the summer in order to encourage more students to get involved with the program.

“To go from 15 volunteers to 53 regular workers is huge,” said Ash, a veterinary sciences senior. Many people couldn’t make last year’s completely volunteer-based program a top priority, Ash said, but now students are getting credit, which should encourage more consistent participation. The interns are participating in the program through either independent study or educational leadership. They are receiving one credit per semester in the year-long internship, and are required to put in a minimum of four hours per week, Ash said. The four hours per week is a requirement from the independent study program.

The goals this year are to put the UA on the forefront of sustainability, and to provide the new interns with the tools they need to succeed in this program and life afterward. The original intent was to have up to 30 interns, Ash said, but when almost 70 applications for the internship came in, she and Nurridin decided to increase the number of students accepted. Eleven of the interns are returning from last year. The group of interns includes engineering, biology, environmental sciAshlee Salamon/Arizona Daily Wildcat ence, business and even a few arts and ASUA sustainability director Lesley Ash, a veterinary science senior, and assistant director Brenphysiology majors, Ash said. dan Nuriddin, an architecture senior, present information to meeting-goers on Wednesday, Sept. 9, about sustainability proposals.

Well he was one of the bad guys, but I guess technically yeah, he would be an X-Man. Well then I would be him. He’s pretty cool. That’s an odd choice. I mean, he’s just a regular guy. He’s not even really a mutant. He basically became powerful by accident. Well, who gives a damn! He’s big, no one can stop him. He’s just crazy and all he does is beat the crap out of people. But what about Colossus? He has metal skin and super strength. Or what about Wolverine? He can regenerate and he’s got the metal blades coming out of his hands.

LONDON — Beatlemania is back with the rollout Wednesday of the Fab Four’s remastered CDs and first-ever video game, reaching out to a whole new generation decades after their parents — and even grandparents — first succumbed. It’s been nearly 40 years since John, Paul, George and Ringo announced their breakup, but the new game and discs caused a worldwide buzz as the Beatles returned to the top of the charts in Britain, the land where it all began. Fans flocked to get their hands on the longawaited sonic masterpieces, with lines snaking outside record stores in London and Liverpool. Some die-hards jammed the streets outside Abbey Road, the landmark studio where the Beatles recorded many of their groundbreaking albums. About 50 people gathered outside the HMV music store on London’s Oxford Street early Wednesday — some, like university student Daniela Gutierrez, waiting in line since 3 a.m. “My parents were huge Beatles fans and I grew up listening to their music,” said Gutierrez, 25. “I can’t wait to have the game and start playing the songs.” It’s not exactly 1964 — there were no fainting teens or other visible signs of feverish Beatlemania — but the longawaited release brought the long-gone band to

the top of the charts maintained by online retailer Or, as John Lennon liked to say, “to the toppermost of the poppermost.” Uma Nolan, an Irish nurse visiting London, came to the Abbey Road studio to be photographed at the pedestrian crossing made famous on the “Abbey Road” album cover. She plans to buy the entire set of 17 CDs — even though she already has all the songs in the collection. “I will absolutely go out and buy them,” she said. “I’m a huge Beatles fan and have every single LP in original first edition copies. They were the first real pop group. The entire generation was waiting for that to happen. They sent worldwide pop culture off into orbit.” High prices are apparently no deterrent — sold out its allotment of pre-orders for the Beatles box set, priced at $260 (170 pounds) and has a waiting list of buyers. And some young people said they don’t want anything to do with the new Beatles video game. “I don’t think it would be any fun for people my age, I don’t even know the words,” said Sofie Lochner, a 17-year-old visiting London from Amsterdam. “That’s something my dad would buy, I’m sure.” — The Associated Press

Res Life takes on students’ clean clothes costs By Marissa Freireich Arizona Daily Wildcat

Ashlee Salamon/Arizona Daily Wildcat

Paula Gomez, an architecture freshman, takes advantage of using the free laundry machines at Coronado Residence Hall on Wednesday, Sept. 9.

Students living on campus have one less expense to worry about this year. Residence Life is no longer charging students to do laundry in their residence halls. Amanda Tester, a history junior who lives in Yuma Residence Hall this year and lived in Yavapai Residence Hall the last two years, is pleased about the change. “You save money you can spend on other things,” she said. “I still have to find time to do laundry — that’s the hard part.” Tester gives tours on campus and said parents who expect their students to pay for laundry are pleasantly surprised. “It’s a new selling point for the dorms,” she said. Students paid $1 to use a washing machine last year and $0.75 to use a dryer, according to Jim Van Arsdel, assistant vice president for Residence Life and University Housing. “It’s kind of like the stars just aligned,” said Van Arsdel, referring to how free laundry came about. In the past, students accessed washers and dryers through the SmartChip on their CatCard. Students can deposit money on this chip using one of 23 Cash-to-Chip machines on campus. The money on the chip is separate from a student’s meal plan, and can be used for printers, copiers and some vendors on campus, according to the CatCard Office’s Web site. Arsdel said fewer organizations on campus are using the SmartChip and that, in the future, the CatCard Office may transition to a different system. “It’s better to be ahead of something like that than to have it happen and have no way to deal with,”

Speaker warns against dangers of drunk driving By Michelle Cohen Arizona Daily Wildcat It took one mistake six years ago to change Sarah Panzau’s life forever. When Panzau was 21 years old she chose to drive home drunk and crashed her car after missing a highway exit, almost killing herself and severing her left arm from her body. Panzau, now 27, travels nine months out of the year around the country speaking to college and high school students in an effort to prevent them from making the same mistakes she did. She spoke last night in the Gallagher Theater located in the Student Union Memorial Center to about 100 UA students and 16 high school students from Howenstine High Magnet School. “I thought it went amazing,” Panzau said. “It was very well received. I can tell by the looks on their faces and the responses afterward.” Many students attending said the lecture had an impact on them because Panzau is a real person they can relate to, not a statistic. “I enjoyed it,” said Alexandra Bulisache, elementary education junior and president of the UA volleyball club. “It really touched me. She has a very strong personality and presence. The emotion she put into it was way more powerful than any statistic.” Panzau, who dropped out of college, also talks about the importance of school, family and finding true friends. As a two-time member of the National Junior College Athletic Association woman’s volleyball All-American team, she also encourages students to follow their dreams. “No matter what hopes and dreams you have for your future, you can obtain them,” Panzau said. After sustaining her injuries, she accom-

plished her dream of playing on the USA Women’s Sitting Volleyball Team in 2005. “If one person (at each event) gets the message and is impacted then that’s a lot of lives that I save just by telling my story,” Panzau said. “That makes it worth it for me.”

Sarah Panzau,a two-time Junior College All-American volleyball player who lost her arm in a drunk-driving accident, speaks to an audience at the Gallagher Theater on Thursday, Sept. 10 at the Student Union Memorial Center about how to avoid negative peer pressure and how to make good life choices.

he said. Residence Life considered investing in a new technology for students to pay for laundry, but realized that would be more expensive for everyone. “We need to be good partners with the rest of the university so we’re not a sole user of a technology that requires someone else to spend a lot of money supporting it,” Van Arsdel said. Mark Barton, bursar and CatCard director, said the UA started using the SmartChip about 10 years ago. Before that, students had to pay for their laundry using coins, and someone had to collect that change from the machines. “It was ineffective for students and for us,” he said. Barton said the SmartChip is not being eliminated, but they are looking at other options. The SmartChip is still accepted at the UofA Bookstore, U-Mart, coffee machines, libraries and Fast Copy. So far, there is no new technology to replace the SmartChip. Van Arsdel acknowledged that the cost of living in residence halls has increased over the past year, and said free laundry is one way of keeping prices affordable. “We try to find ways of making residence halls a valuable experience for students,” he said. “Not only something that is fun and exciting and educational, but something that’s also reasonably priced.” To accommodate this change, Residence Life reallocated some of the money in the department so that they were using it more efficiently. “It isn’t so much that we’re going to have more expenses, it’s just that we’re not going to have the income we used to from that source,” Van

Arsdel said. There are approximately 6,100 undergraduate students living on campus this year, compared to about 5,700 last year, Van Arsdel said. Christina Carlson, a pre-nursing freshman and resident of KaibabHuachuca Residence Hall, also likes the free laundry. “You can do it when you want and not have to worry about keeping track of your money,” she said. “I’d probably end up going home to do it,” Carlson said if she had to pay. Tester and Carlson found the biggest problem with not having to pay for laundry is other students not removing their finished loads from the machines in a timely manner. Van Arsdel said there are two possible outcomes that stem from providing free laundry. “On the good side, it costs students less,” he said. “On the bad side, it might be more difficult to get a washer and dryer because people are using it less efficiently than in the past.” Van Arsdel believes students will save money and not superfluously do more laundry. “I don’t think (laundry) is a very fun task to do,” he said. “That’s not how I would spend my time.” Each machine has a counter, and Residence Life will look at the numbers and get student feedback toward the end of the semester about how it is working. Residence Life will not take any action until the end of the year. Van Arsdel already expects the numbers to increase since there are more students living on campus than last year. “We would look at the numbers and ask ourselves, ‘Is this a good thing or not?’” he said.

UA groups to offer free HIV testing By Marissa Freireich Arizona Daily Wildcat After losing a family member diagnosed with AIDS in 2006, Jai Smith, the director of ASUA Pride Alliance, decided to do what he could to stop the spread of the disease. Pride Alliance, UA’s LGBT resource center, and other groups on campus are coming together next week to provide free HIV testing for students. “I feel like a lot of times, the generation that we currently live in has a feeling of being indestructible,” Smith said. “We don’t take our health as seriously as we should, especially our sexual health.” Testing is important because the number of cases of HIV and AIDS are on the rise. According to a press release from Pride Alliance, the “number of newly diagnosed HIV/ AIDS cases increased by 15 percent”between 2004 and 2007. In Arizona, for example, more than 11,000 people have HIV or AIDS, according to the release. The testing event will take place Sept. 16 from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. in the Center for Student Involvement and Leadership, located on the fourth floor of the Student Union Memorial Center. The Pride Alliance, the Women’s Resource Center, the Southern Arizona AIDS Foundation, the Pima County Health Department, the Student Health Advisory Committee, MedPride and the Center

for Student Involvement and Leadership will sponsor this event. The Pride Alliance plans to hold four testing events this school year. Last year about 60 students had to be put on waitlists to be tested by the Women’s Resource Cennter. The testing is targeted toward the lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, and questioning individuals and minority women, because those groups are most at risk, but anyone is welcome to sign up for the testing, said Smith. “Last year, I decided that the best thing that could get the most people involved in an open discussion about HIV,” Smith said. “And it just sort of blossomed from there.” Each organization involved

has volunteered their resources or their time, so the only cost is for the test itself, which is $7 or $8 dollars apiece and will be funded by the Pride Alliance budget. For this event, nurse practitioners will administer finger tests, and the results will be processed in about 10 minutes. Tests will be administered in a private room and the results will be kept confidential. The event is also an opportunity for students to ask questions and receive information confidentially, according to the organization. There are 60 total spots available for next week’s testing, and about 30 spots are still open. Participation in the event is by RSVP only, and those interested should contact Smith at jais@

Love talk: trust, betrayal and e-mail O


Living with and remembering Sept. 11

This year’s freshman class would have been about 10 years old on Sept. 11, 2001. Many of us were just beginning to discover the wider world beyond our homes and families. But on that day we found our parents and teachers could fear. We saw that our country could bleed. We learned we live in a world where humans hate other humans, where airplanes could be used as missiles to murder people who had done nothing wrong. That’s the world in which we came of age. Eight years later, it’s difficult to imagine any other. But while Sept. 11, our “Day of Infamy,” will never be just another date on the calendar, fears have faded in the years since and life has returned to something we can call normal. For our generation, Sept. 11 is a fact of life. We remember, but we move forward. That’s as it should be. But even so, today it’s important to note that we really do live with the legacy of Sept. 11 every day. Most notably, we see Sept. 11 in the headlines from Iraq and Afghanistan. Many of our classmates have served in the wars touched off by the terrorist attacks. Today’s high school graduates are volunteering to serve in a conflict that began when they were in grade school. If your family or friends are serving or have served overseas, you know better than anyone this day has real meaning. And for the thousands across the

country who lost loved ones in the terrorist attacks, Sept. 11 will never be an afterthought. So today, we remember. The following is an excerpt from a letter to the editor sent by UA alumna and former Daily Wildcat columnist Erin Kirsten Stein, published Sept. 12, 2001. I went to the eye doctor yesterday. On the subway into Manhattan (I live in Queens) they announced delays in train service. They announced that E trains were not running below Canal Street because a plane had run into the World Trade Center. It’s not your typical subway announcement, but I just thought that some moron had flown his tiny plane into the antenna or something. After all, not long ago somebody ran into the Statue of Liberty. The TV was on in the optometrist’s waiting room with the image of the smoking towers. After I came out of my eye exam, the first tower collapsed. As I rushed over to my office building, people were on the street everywhere talking about it,“It fell over!” “Hey it’s the end of the world!” Cell phones were not working ­­— either because the antennas on top of the towers were gone or because millions of people were overloading the circuits … All of the subways and train services were shut down. So many of us nonManhattan residents were marooned

on the island. Every sidewalk was its own river of people moving uptown, away from the disaster. There were long lines at all of the pay phones. I could see down Sixth Avenue to where the towers had been and where a huge pillar of smoke and dust was rising and billowing out toward Brooklyn. Every time the drone of a fighter plane was heard, people jumped … Since all of the subways were closed, we joined the crowds, making an exodus out of Manhattan on foot. Most of the streets were closed, and only emergency vehicles drove by on their way to the scene: fire trucks, ambulances and bulldozers traveling in a pack with a police escort, a delivery truck commandeered and labeled with a cardboard sign that read“NYC Emergency Hospital Medical Supplies.” As we walked over the bridge to Queens and I looked at the still-billowing smoke that used to be two tall skyscrapers, I still couldn’t believe the towers are gone. When I’ve watched disasters like the Oklahoma bombing and the Columbine shootings unfolding before me on TV, I’ve been unable to imagine the pain and grief that the victims’ loved ones suffered. Now I am much closer to being able to imagine it. Editorials are determined by the Daily Wildcat opinions board and written by one of its members.

nce upon a time, I had a boyfriend who had an ex-girlfriend who had a account. I knew they were in contact, but the way he described their relationship was the way we are always told is indicative of their being truly over it: brief and amicable. Nonetheless, when he accidentally left his account logged on into Facebook on my computer one day, I came across a message from this particular ex-girlfriend beginning with the words “I miss you,” I was not without suspicion. But, she was in Scotland and he was in Australia and wanting to take the course of action that was less likely to label me as unhinged, I logged out of his account and never mentioned it. A year later and they are now living together. Could I have avoided this situation in which I continued a relationship with someone who was invested in someone else? Should I hold myself in some greater regard because I took the moral high ground even though it was ultimately to my detriment? Was I even entitled to know the details of conversations that did not include me? These are questions that often arise when we are presented with the dilemma of whether to invade our partner’s privacy for the sake of potential self-preservation. The fact that my suspicions were correct is somewhat irrelevant; the greater issue was that I did not trust the person I was with enough to believe he was acting in our relationship’s best interests. The perceived need or desire to look through a call list or read a diary is merely a symptom of the distrust that has arisen in a relationship. We are all so intently focused on what someone will find out should they have a glance through our inbox that we rarely think to ask ourselves why our partner would feel the need to do so. In most healthy relationships, no information will be found out through this avenue that is likely to change someone’s mind about continuing the relationship (I would hope) and the fundamental mistake we make is ignoring what occurred to propel the dishonest behavior. People who feel comfortable and secure in their relationship do not tend to monitor their partner’s interactions with others, mainly because personal correspondence is shitboring (unless you’re dating Emily Dickinson). Yet, creating a situation where someone feels they must

resort to these measures for validation does not leave their partner free of fault. Admittedly, this mindset does overlook those who are paranoid and mistrusting beyond reprieve, but it is often those of us who are generally well adjusted Dunja but who cannot elicit an explanation for Nedic a change in behavior or relationship columnist dynamic that then resort to secretive and desperate means to seek out this information. Given that trust is so fundamental to romantic liaisons, the lack of it that evokes somewhat unbalanced behavior is of perhaps even greater concern than the violation of trust that occurs when one’s phone or computer has been hijacked. If we are not willing to put our fears to rest (or cannot do so because they are indeed acting in a way that is damaging), then they need to take some of the responsibility for this outcome too. This invasion of privacy tends to be a simple battle of who was more wrong after the fact and the punishment that befalls the invader is based on whether they found out anything the invadee shouldn’t have kept from them. But this isn’t really the issue at all. Whether their suspicions were confirmed or disproven does little to address the problem of one partner not trusting the other, and this is a far greater threat to a relationship than a few flirty emails. So would my ex have been less at fault if I’d been wrong about the nature of his relationship with his ex? Well, yes, where emotional fidelity is concerned. But it makes little difference when considering his responsibility to treat me in a way that would’ve made me feel comfortable and secure in the relationship. Chances are, this was not something he could offer largely because of his attachment to the no-longer-ex-girlfriend. Whatever the reason had been though, he was not fulfilling the expectations I had of him. Ultimately, I cannot advocate hacking into e-mail accounts as a way to better your relationship but there is no easy way to handle the suspected dishonesty of a partner if they are not forthcoming with this information and make no attempts to settle the unease of distrust. But if I had access to a time machine, would I go back and read the Scot’s message? You bet. — Dunja Nedic is an Australian Exchange Student. She can be reached at

Legal drugs next door?

ust last month, Mexico’s Senate passed a law that decriminalized small amounts of drugs for personal use in an effort to stem the flood of costly, and often unsuccessful, criminal drug prosecution, as well as to focus the efforts of law enforcement on the large producers and distributors. The law allows the possession of several drugs, including: marijuana, cocaine, heroin, methamphetamines, and LSD. The amounts allowed are small, generally about the equivalent of two to three uses, but the consequences could be enormous. If this whole scenario sounds familiar, it’s because it has happened before. In 2006 the Mexican Senate passed the same basic bill, but it was vetoed by then President Vicente Fox after strong opposition from American politicians. After initially supporting it, Fox changed his tune and asked for a revision to “make it absolutely clear that in our country the possession of drugs and their consumption are, and continue to be crimes.” The difference now is that the current Mexican President Felipe Calderon is the one who brought this bill before the Congress. Drug traffickers that have killed thousands and whose actions even spilled into the United States have him committed to signing the bill. It is an effort, he believes, will help the military and federal officers stop or at least control the intense violence along the border. Mexico, particularly Nogales and Puerto Peñasco, for the residents of Tucson and students at the UA, has long been an affordable destination for Americans to shop and relax. They have also, however, been a destination for underage drinkers who wish to party in a bar or club, as well as anyone with money who wants to pick up prescription drugs without the hassle of faking symptoms and convincing a doctor to prescribe something at a pricey doctor’s appointment. It was never difficult to obtain drugs in Mexico, nor is it that difficult to obtain drugs in America, though the consequences of getting caught in either country could be enough for the average person to avoid the risk. Now, with the legalization of recreational narcotics for personal use, Mexico could see the number of drug tourists jump considerably. The drug use among college aged student’s, 18-25, is, and has tended to be, almost double that of all the other age groups combined according to the White House Office of National Drug Control Policy and the Bureau of Justice Statistics.

With this in mind, it’s easy to see how this new law could adversely affect our college community. However, I feel this law is progressive and can actually do a lot of good. The value of this law as a social experiment, if Chris for no other reason, could be extraordinary. By legalizing drugs, the government doing so Ward could generate boatloads of revenue from the taxation of drugs. Also, legalizing drugs would columnist deal serious blows to terrorist organizations like the Taliban or al Qaeda, who lately are getting large portions of their revenue from the sale of illegal drugs or the ingredients needed to produce them. Perhaps most importantly, with regulation of the drug trade including the purity and potency, it would make society safer, with drugs likely more difficult to obtain than now, and would almost certainly precipitate a huge decline in violent crime. Some things it will do for Mexico include dramatically lowering the number of man-hours and money spent on the arrest and prosecution of petty drug possession cases. According to the Associated Press, out on the thousands of arrests and searches conducted in relation to small time drug dealing or possession in Mexico, only 12-15 percent are ever even charged with a crime. To use our country as an example, according to the FBI, there were over 870,000 marijuana related arrests in 2007 alone. Of those, almost 90 percent were only for possession of the drug. These numbers show that, since the early 1990s, marijuana arrests have nearly tripled, proving that the current policies and efforts made to prevent drug use, trafficking and sales are ineffective and represent only an incredible waste of taxpayers’ money. Another probable benefit from the passage of this law will be to curb corruption. Corruption has long been a problem within local Mexican police forces, and the police

with the proper donation could easily overlook weapon possession, small amounts of drugs or traffic violations, among other things. This bill may curb such shady practices, but it’s not as if American college students were sweating bullets if in possession of drugs in a Mexican border or coastal city before this new law. Nor did college students fear the wrath of drug related violence, as shown by the increased tourism in Mexico during the spring break periods. Drug use has forever been a part of human culture, and while it may seem irresponsible of Mexico to legalize all drugs, they are at least trying to do something. Thinking outside the box may be the best way to overcome some of the problems related to drug trafficking. —Chris Ward is a senior majoring in English. He can be reached at letters@wildcat.

Let your mind take off with

policebeat By Michael Merriman Arizona Daily Wildcat

Speeding student cited for suspended license

University of Arizona Police Department officers were monitoring traffic on northbound Campbell Avenue on Sept. 1 at 10 a.m. when they observed a black BMW sedan travelling faster than adjacent vehicles. Officers confirmed the vehicle’s speed at 47 mph in a 35 mph zone. Officers initiated a traffic stop and made contact with the driver, who identified himself using a UA CatCard. A records check of the student revealed an outstanding license suspension. Police cited the man on charges of driving on a suspended license and failing to wear a seatbelt. The BMW was impounded for a mandatory 30-day period, and the driver was released on scene.

Are you calling me fat?

UAPD officers met with a female UA student at the La Aldea student apartments at 825 E. Fifth St. on Sept. 1 at 9:10 a.m., regarding an unwanted package she received in the mail. According to police, the woman stated she had received a package containing a trial offer bottle of Acai Pure dietary pills, shipped from a fulfillment center in Largo, Fla. The woman claimed that a receipt accompanying the pills had her Bank of China Visa credit card information on it, which she told police she had not authorized, and to avoid any charges, she would have to send the pills back. The woman also told police she had made online purchases in the past using the same card. Police advised the woman that certain online companies share financial information about their customers and, in the future, to disable any information sharing features before making online purchases. Police further advised the woman to send the pills back as directed, and to contact UAPD immediately of any further unauthorized charges.

Man cited for multiple offenses

UAPD initiated a traffic stop on the driver of a 1979 Chevrolet Nova on Sept. 2 at 10:32 p.m. after observing the vehicle operating without required brake lights. Police made contact with the driver and asked him for his license, registration and proof of insurance for the vehicle. The man told police he had none of the requested documents. He further told police he had purchased the vehicle earlier in the week and had not yet gotten either a registration or insurance, and currently had no proof of ownership for the vehicle. When asked about his license, the man told police it had been suspended. Police were able to identify the man using an Arizona State identification card and a records check confirmed the license suspension. Police placed the man under arrest at 10:50 p.m. and cited him on multiple charges: driving on a suspended license; failure to provide proof of financial responsibility; operating a vehicle with expired registration as a non-owner; and operating a vehicle without required brake lamps. The vehicle was impounded for a mandatory 30-day period, and the man was released at the scene.

Aspiring movie producer makes bookstore employee uncomfortable

UAPD responded to the UofA Bookstore on Sept. 2 at 7:19 p.m. concerning an employee who had reported suspicious activity. Upon arrival, police met with the employee who stated that at about 5:50 p.m., he had been standing at the top of the main stairwell in the bookstore when a man he had never met approached him and began a conversation. According to the employee, the man began talking about a fighting movie that he was making, and then began to softly demonstrate punches and pushes on the employee. The man continued to talk for half an hour, during which time he invited the employee to see a comedy show at his place of business, and was able to ask for and received the employee’s phone number. The man paid for several items and exited the store and, minutes later, called the employee. The employee became uncomfortable about the encounter and decided not to answer the phone. Instead, he called police. Officers were able to locate the man at his job and informed him of the reason for the contact. The man was advised that while he was not prohibited from entering the bookstore, he was prohibited from any future contact with the employee he had spoken with. Officers also advised the man to erase the employee’s phone number, which he did.

He said he just tapped it

UAPD officers responded to Lot 6093 at 750 N. Cherry Ave. on Sept. 2 at 6:57 p.m. in reference to a call from the owner of a vehicle that had been damaged. Officers arrived and met with the owner of a yellow Chevrolet Cavalier who identified himself as a student. He told police he had parked his car in the lot at 6:15 p.m. and when he returned at 6:30 p.m., he noticed his car had been damaged. He further told police that while inspecting the damage to his car, he was approached by a woman who told him she had seen a white Ford Mustang strike his car before leaving the scene. She also provided the student with the license plate number of the Mustang, which he provided to police. Police were able to contact the driver of the Mustang via phone and he agreed to meet with police in Lot 6097 at 1601 North Cherry Avenue. According to police, the driver of the Mustang was identified as a student. He claimed he knew that he had struck the Cavalier, but believed he had only “tapped” it. When asked why he left the scene, he told officers he did not believe he had caused any damage to the car. The man was cited on charges of leaving the scene of an accident involving an unattended vehicle. He was released on scene and the owner of the Cavalier was issued a Victim’s Rights form.

Poisonous insulation deemed not a risk

have beams with fireproofing spray that can be damaged just by hand pressure. These beams are generally not accessible to the general public, he said. According to the EPA, the asbestos removal process can create a dangerous situation. The agency only requires asbestos removal in the case of a demolition or renovation. The Modern Languages building, as well as the Psychology building, no longer have asbestos insulation in the classrooms due to renovations in the late ‘90s, but asbestos still exists in other parts of the buildings, Wagner said. “It’s a very expensive process to remove and replace that asbestos,”he said. “If we could eliminate it, that would be the ideal thing. It’s just a matter of having the funds to actually remove it.” John Sullivan, associate director of the Arizona Poison Center, said there is no risk to students or teachers who are in those buildings. “It’s not dangerous at all as long as they’re not friable or broken apart,” he said. “If they’re sealed, they’re perfectly fine, they’re safe.” Sullivan also said the fiber has to be small enough to get into the lungs to be a problem. “It’s the size of the fiber that determines whether or not asbestos is a problem, not the existence of it,” Sullivan said. Wagner said the people most likely to contract any health problems from the exposure are those in the immediate area at the time of fiber release. He added that sometimes the health problems might not develop for 30 or 40 years after the initial exposure. Some students are concerned by the presence of asbestos in their classrooms. “If there is a possible risk of it harming my health, it wouldn’t really make me all that comfortable,” said undeclared sophomore Connor Eustice.

Several students enter Modern Languages for classes on Wednesday, Sept.9. Modern Languages is one of the at least 14 buildings on campus than contain asbestos, a building material which can be damaging to the lungs if it becomes airborne.

Wagner doesn’t believe it’s necessary to remove all asbestos from the buildings. “For the most part, no one gets into those areas where the asbestos is to

disturb it,” he said.“The areas that have that potential to disturb it, we have taken measures to either isolate or encapsulate it.”

as UAccess Student. UAccess Student will replace Student Link, but will remain similar in the overall look and functions. “What you do in Student Link will work in better in UAccess Student,” said Hank Childers , Mosaic project director. Students will still have set enrollment dates based on class standing, Bourgeois said, but the new system will include added features to make enrollment easier and more effective. “It will do more … like save seats in classes for seniors so they can get out and manage prerequisites so (students) will be better prepared for further classes,” he said. Molecular and cellular biology sophomore Yuhjin Lee said she is looking forward to the changes after having difficulties registering for classes. “There’s no access or not enough seats or restricted classes for orientation purposes so students that are enrolled, sophomores, juniors, etcetera, can’t sign up,” Lee said. “I’ve experienced that problem a lot this year, and hopefully the change will make that easier for us.” The new system, known as PeopleSoft, will also allow faculty and administrators more control over which students are able to register for certain classes, Bourgeois said. “The academic department can basically control how many seats are open to seniors, juniors, etcetera,” he said. “For example,

maybe they only want to let 10 seniors in. PeopleSoft will allow us to do that.” Currently there is no way for academic departments to electronically enforce prerequisites, and therefore they can’t control the level of preparedness of students, Bourgeois said. The new system will allow for better control of these classes. “If you need to take a 100 course before a 200 course, this system will allow us to give you a better chance of taking that course so you are better prepared,” he said. The Student Academic Progress Report will have more up-to-date information and a more visually appealing display with the new system, Bourgeois said, making it easier for students to decipher the often baffling document. In addition, the new Student Link will remain open 24 hours a day, which should allow for faster transactions. Everyone on campus, from students to administrators, will be assigned a new eight-digit identification number compatible with PeopleSoft software. Overall, Mosaic officials said, the new system is designed to provide a simpler, more efficient framework for the computing power on campus. “Part of what Mosaic is about is being able to better connect to different systems,” Childers said. “Mosaic is all these different pieces that fit together to make a whole.”

Last tune-up against NAU By Tim Kosch ARIZONA DAILY WILDCAT Arizona football finally has some breathing room. They battled through youth, not naming a starting quarterback and the challenges posed by a talented Central Michigan team en route to starting the season 1-0. And now they can relax, using this week’s matchup against NAU as a final tune-up before a rigorous schedule begins with a Sept. 19 trip to Iowa. But the team probably won’t admit that. “Going into this week, we don’t want to get content and think that just because it’s NAU that we can take a week off and not play,”said senior safety Cam Nelson. “You saw a lot of that this past Saturday with all the close scores with the big-time schools against the smaller schools. We don’t want to come out and make that mistake.” The theme of practice this week has been to focus on the task at hand and for the players to be more concerned with what the Wildcats do than what NAU or any other future opponent can do. That holds especially true with the offense. “The main thing is to just work on us right now,” said senior wide receiver Terrell Turner. “Not worry so much about the other team, just focus on what we have to do right now in our execution and get that down.” Turner now has the luxury of knowing who his starting quarterback will be, as sophomore Matt Scott took all of the snaps against CMU despite weeks of speculation that Scott and fellow sophomore quarterback Nick Foles would split duties. “I was expecting him to go and throw it up a couple of times, but he didn’t,” said Turner when asked if Scott is more comfortable now that he has a start under his belt. “He kept his composure throughout the game so I was very proud of that. That’s his job, as the quarterback, is to go out and hold his composure and keep the offense moving.” Coaches guaranteed that Foles will get some snaps this weekend, but whether or not they are meaningful or mop-up snaps remains to be seen. If he does play, the Arizona offense will be more of the same — a steady rushing attack with a conservative passing playbook that will see moderate expansion as time goes on. Like Central Michigan, NAU runs a spread offense so the defense should be familiar with what is lining up

Wildcats focused, hoping to solidify a 2-0 record going into Iowa game

Arizona men’s lacrosse players have charisma, but as of late, they have been missing their biggest character of all. For the past eight years MickeyMiles Felton has been away from the very program he fought so hard to create back in 1976. This season, Felton returns to Arizona as head coach and his team could not be any more ecstatic upon his arrival. “We’re really excited to get Mickey back and just bring back some of the tradition of the team,” Arizona captain Alex Beauchamp said. “There’s been nothing but positive things from alumni, and everyone is just really excited.” Felton has always been considered the mastermind behind Arizona lacrosse, and his absence has left a large void in the morale of the program. “Last year was kind of a mess with the coaching situation, and a lot of players were quitting,” sophomore Matt Duke-Rosati said. “Mickey started our program, he knows what to do, and bringing him back brings a lot of stability not only this year but for years to come. He just brings back that stability feature that we were missing for a while.” More than stability even, Felton

’Jacks prepared for D-I Arizona Running game to bolster in-state rival Saturday By Bobby Stover ARIZONA DAILY WILDCAT

Players to watch for UA:

• Delashaun Dean – WR, 6-foot-4, 202 pounds, Jr., 2L – People have seen what he can do on the field, the question is whether or not he’s healthy enough to do it. Dean missed almost all of preseason camp due to a hamstring injury, and although he started against CMU his snaps and responsibilities were limited. UA should use this game to get Dean back to game speed.

against them. “There aren’t a lot of changes,”Nelson said.“There’s a lot of carryover from last week, so it’ll be sort of the same gameplan with a few tweaks here and there.” The main tweak in the Wildcat’s strategy will be a focus on NAU’s rushing attack, which is better compared to what CMU had to offer. “Central Michigan is pretty much a pass team,” Nelson said. “But this week, (NAU) does run the ball pretty well. They have a really good running back and he’s been there a long time, and I remember facing

is hoping to simply bring back the love of the game. “To tell you the truth, it got to the point where I didn’t know if I wanted to send any of the high school kids to this program, and that really disturbed me,”said Felton, who coached at Catalina High School last year. “I’m coming back actually because I have been very unhappy about the way things have been progressing the last few years.” Felton has always outwardly expressed that among his many recognitions, his personal pride has always been rooted in knowing that alumni from his program go on to coach at all levels of lacrosse, keeping the sport alive. He knows if they are doing that, then they must have had great experiences during their Arizona careers. “It’s not as much about winning and losing as it is ‘Laxcat Fever,’” Felton continued. “I just feel that the fever hasn’t permeated through the program any longer, and guys haven’t been happy playing any longer.” One thing Felton was extremely disheartened about was the fact that he felt the Arizona program, as of late, had been used as a steppingstone for past coaches. “Consequently, everything gets blown out of proportion for them LAXCATS, page 8

him my sophomore year. He was a pretty good back.” Looking at the big picture, NAU is merely a blip on the radar screen compared to the Wildcats’ next two games against Iowa and Oregon State. But a convincing 2-0 record heading into those games would be much more comforting than a 1-1 record. “We don’t see (them as an inferior school), we just see them as a big-time school in Arizona,” senior linebacker Vuna Tuihalamaka said. “We’re just going to do us and not worry about what they bring to the table.”

• Lolomana Mikaele – DT, 6-2, 305, Jr., 1L – He isn’t a starter, but he could turn out to be the most important player on Arizona’s defense. The unit is powered by its defensive line, and Mikaele could provide depth and downright aggression. He can clog the middle to stop the run and also rush the passer.

Keys for UA:

1. Rush the passer – Defense becomes easy if the quarterback is out of rhythm and getting hit. 2. Improve the passing game – This is the only “soft” game on the schedule, and the offense should use it to improve its aerial attack. 3. Stay focused – With marquee games ahead on the schedule, UA needs to make sure it focuses and avoids an embarrassing loss.

They said it:

Senior wide receiver Terrell Turner “They have good athletes at that school and they’re not to be underestimated. A couple of ACC teams lost to some lower-level teams, so we won’t take them lightly.”

Midway through last football season, Northern Arizona appeared bound for the Division I-AA postseason with a record of 6-1 overall and 3-0 in Big Sky Conference play. The Lumberjacks were even ranked as high as No. 15 in D-1AA through the first seven weeks. But by the end of the season, the Lumberjacks had dropped to 6-5 overall, 4-4 in the conference and found themselves bound for yet another lonely December in frigid Flagstaff, Ariz. The dramatic downfall of NAU leaves the 2009 squad with a number of question marks, but none more prevalent than how this year’s team will respond to challenges. “There’s a mental aspect of (facing adversity), that we have to be prepared for,” NAU head coach Jerome Souers said in a conference call Wednesday.“A lot of things went against us and we didn’t respond well. What I want to see out of this football team (this season) is that when things go against us we handle it a lot better.” Souers’ NAU squad will likely get early exposure to adversity tomorrow night when they kick off their season against an Arizona team fresh off a 19-6 win over Central Michigan last Saturday. In the victory, the Wildcats proved they have what Souers called“a very stingy defense” — one NAU quarterback Michael Herrick will have to try and pick apart. Herrick comes into the game with limited experience from last season after spending most of the year behind senior Lance Kriesen. But in the action Herrick did see, the junior showed glimpses of his potential with a 64.7 completion percentage — nearly five points higher than Kriesen. With the offense solely under his control heading into the season, Herrick is FOOTBALL, page 8

Soccer to take on two

Ranked Rutgers and Brown visit Mulcahy Soccer Stadium By Vincent Balistreri ARIZONA DAILY WILDCAT Fresh off its first win of the season, the Arizona soccer team hopes to build on its success and avoid any setbacks as they host No. 17 Rutgers University and Brown University in the Marriott University Park Tournament this weekend at the Mulcahy Soccer Stadium. The Wildcats match up against Brown tonight at 7:30 and against Rutgers on Sunday at 7 p.m. “Coming off of a win, it definitely starts our season over for us,” said forward Renae Cuellar. “Friday’s game is going to be a big game for us. If we don’t win, it would feel like a setback because of the way we’ve started the season.” Arizona will try to put together a full 90-minute game, which it hasn’t been able to do thus far in the season, even in Sunday’s victory over Old Dominion University. The trend for the Wildcats has been to start strong, but be unable to manufacture any goals in the second half. Arizona has been outscored 9-2 by their opponents in second half of games this season. “We need to be a little tougher and be able to play through it when we’re fatigued,” said assistant coach Lisa Oyen. “It’s not just your legs getting through the fatigue, it’s about having the mental capacity to get through it and being willing to fight through it.” Oyen also mentioned that the coaches ran the team more in the beginning of practices this week, allowing them to adjust to playing at a high level when

fatigue sets in. “Practice has been tough but practicing with more intensity always helps because it better prepares us for game situations,” Cuellar said. Brown (0-1-0) comes to Tucson with a similar style of play as some of the Wildcats’ previous opponents they’ve played this season. “They’re a team that’s a little more direct and it’s good because we’ve seen that style before, so it should be easier to figure out how to play against them,”

Oyen said.“But at the same time, they’re from out of the region, and at the end of the day, we focus on what we do best and go from there.” The Wildcats have yet to win (0-3) against ranked teams this season, and will have a chance to change that against Rutgers, which is coming off a Sunday win against No. 24 Penn State. “We continue to have a good, challenging schedule and that’s how we’re going to get better as this season progresses,” said head coach Dan Tobias.

Arizona vs. NAU Week two of Wildcat football will give players another chance to gear up before they head to Iowa for their first road game of the year. While the running game and defense will ground the team, the question of who will be under center for Arizona will either be confidently answered or criticized, depending on Matt Scott’s performance. Arizona 35, NAU 10

NAU has a lot working in its favor. The team is fresh (it has yet to play a game this season), it has nothing to lose and there’s even a song with their namesake. But despite Monty Python’s best efforts to show just how OK Lumberjacks are, they shouldn’t threaten Arizona. Plus, I can’t pick against the Wildcats this early in the season. There’s 10 games worth of stories left to write after this week. Arizona 41, NAU 13

The NAU Lumberjack doesn’t even use modern machinery to fell trees. He’s not current with society, and therefore, at least in mascot terms, it will be that much easier for Arizona to get a win. On a more serious note, the fact that the Wildcats can finally relax now that they have a starting quarterback in Matt Scott will make it easy for Arizona to go to Iowa in week three with a 2-0 record. Arizona 24, NAU 14

No. 8 Ohio State vs. No. 3 USC In true Hollywood style, USC quarterback Matt Barkley told Ohio State fans to“bring it on.”Sports are all about confidence, but telling 102,329 Buckeye fans that already hate the Trojans to scream louder isn’t going to help the five guys up front. The noise may just drown out Barkley’s poise. No. 3 USC 14, No. 8 Ohio State 17

With a true freshman calling the plays on offense, the Trojans’ protective front needs to be extra durable to give their QB plenty of time to play the field. If the Buckeyes — a type of nut, in case you didn’t know — give Terrelle Pryor as much space as an open relationship, Ohio State will be a tough nut to beat. But this is mainly for my former colleague. He’ll be at the game, wearing red.

Ohio State may have a lethal signal caller in Terrelle Pryor, but the Trojans have more soul than all of Motown in the past four decades. In a team meeting a few weeks ago, USC coach Pete Carroll played the piano while linebacker Marquis Simmons led the team in a unique rendition of Bill Withers’“Lean on Me.”The Buckeyes will be edged by the greatest brotherhood in college football.

Michigan vs. No. 18 Notre Dame Although historically the two best teams in college football, the Fighting Irish and the Wolverines, have seriously struggled the past two seasons. Anyone remember Appalachian State? Notre Dame has the advantage when it comes to wide receivers over the Michigan secondary, but with both programs trying to prove they belong in the top 25, it’ll be a battle all the way to the end. Michigan 21, Notre Dame 24

To prepare for the Fighting Irish, the Wolverines stayed within the NCAA guidelines and only practiced a meager total of 80 hours this week, which head coach Rich Rodriguez would say is perfectly OK. At least Michigan should be well prepared for this tilt in the Big House. But we’re talking about a game. Not practice, a game. (Sorry Allen Iverson) And playing in games hasn’t treated Big Blue kindly in recent years. Michigan 17, Notre Dame 35

Men’s golf tees off season in New Mexico

Wildcats will play at a top 25 ranked course with a lone senior in the starting lineup By Michael Schmitz ARIZONA DAILY WILDCAT The Arizona men’s golf team left Wednesday for the William H. Tucker Invitational in Albuquerque, N.M., in hopes of starting the 2009-2010 season off with a bang . “Being the first tournament, you always want to get off to a good start,” said returning junior All-American Tarquin MacManus . “You have to put a lot of importance on the first event.” The tournament will be played at the Championship Course at the University of New Mexico , a par-72, 7,248-yard course that was ranked in the top 25 courses in the country by Golf Digest Magazine. The Wildcats feel they did not quite get off to the hot start they hoped for last season when they finished seventh of 16 teams at the same event , but MacManus and company hope that this year will begin differently. “The last couple of years we really haven’t been able to (start off well), so I’m really looking forward to going out there and getting this one to start off the way we want it

to,” MacManus said. Head coach Rick LaRose chose eight players to compete in the Friday-Saturday competition. The golfers include senior Rich Saferian , juniors MacManus, John Khan, Tom Conran and John Kostis , sophomore Kenji Hernandez and freshmen Stefan Cox and Trent Redfern. Five players will make up the starting lineup, while the other three will play individually. The first tournament is a good way for players to solidify themselves into the lineup, especially the underclassmen. “It’s going to be a good tournament for us to see who’s playing well because we have some new kids that came in,” Saferian said. “It will be a good judge of who’s going to step into our top five.” Today and tomorrow will not only provide a chance for the Wildcats to post a top finish, but also an opportunity for the team and players alike to set the bar high for a long season. “We’ll see who is able to handle the pressure and compete at the level that we play at every week,” Saferian said.

FOOTBALL continued from page 7

Michigan head coach Rich Rodriguez won’t be crying after this game, and Notre Dame coach Charlie Weis will need at least two cartons of rocky road to comfort his soul. Notre Dame is coming off of a near-flawless defensive game from last week, but Michigan is going to find a way to score and eventually win. Look out Ohio State, Michigan will have one up on you after this week. Michigan 24, Notre Dame 21

Pressure on new NAU quarterback to produce

looking forward to taking charge of the NAU offense. “It’s been a while since I’ve been a starter so (getting that opportunity) is really exciting,”Herrick said.“I just want to go out there and have some fun and try to get back into the swing of things.” While the junior should not pose much of a running attack for the Arizona defense — he netted -94 yards in 2008 — Herrick does have some dangerous targets through the air. Senior Ed Berry is NAU’s leading receiver from last season, averaging 58 yards per game. Fellow senior Conrad Meadows was also one of the Lumberjacks’ top aerial threats finishing the year with a team-high four touchdown passes. The pressure will be on Herrick entering the season as NAU will be missing the ground attack of last season’s leading rusher Deonte Williams who transferred to Sierra College after contributing 86 yards per game along with 12 scores on the year. Williams will be replaced by senior Alex Henderson who saw limited game action last season but averaged 63.5 yards per game in six contests. “We certainly feel (the loss of Williams),”Herrick said. “But we got Alex Henderson who’s a great (running) back and he’s been here for three years. I really believe that we’ve got some really good backs and I trust them, so I’m not worried about our running game.” Defensively, the Lumberjacks are opening their season with injuries. Linebackers Cody Dowd – a preseason All-Big Sky selection – and Jared Fono along with defensive lineman Kainoa Pe’a will all miss tomorrow’s game with various injuries. The absence of these players will make it even tougher to stop Arizona’s two-headed running attack of quarterback Matt Scott and running back Nic Grigsby who both ran for 83 and 118 yards respectively last weekend. While the key losses on NAU’s defense will surely generate a tough test for the Lumberjacks, Souers and his squad are ready this season to deal with this type of adversity. “We worked very hard over the offseason to approach adversity in a positive way,” Souers said.

LAXCATS continued from page 7

“We’ve worked at how we look at things mentally as well as how we handle ourselves in the face of adversity because every season’s going to have it. “I think as a football team we’re anxious to prove we’re not (a weak-minded) team.”

Players to watch for on NAU:

• Michael Herrick – QB, 6-foot-1, 195 pounds, Jr., 1L – Named the preseason starter for first time in career. Despite being backup in 2008 he still saw action in 10 games and had 150 passing attempts with a 64.7 passing efficiency. He is a solid passer but lacks mobility does have a tendency to throw the occasional pick. • Conrad Meadows – WR, 5-foot-9, 186 pounds, Sr., 1L – Meadows played in all of NAU’s games last season and lead all receivers in touchdown receptions with four. He also returned kicks for the Lumberjacks last season with a 23.6 yard average. • Anthony Llanos – LB, 6-foot-2, 251 pounds, Sr., 2L – One of the keys to a banged up defensive unit. A two-year veteran, Llanos is the returning leader in tackles with 54 last season. The senior also collected 6.5 sacks and is also a strong pass blocker.


1. Protect the football – Turnovers could prove disastrous against the strong Arizona defense. 2. Corral the Arizona runners – Matt Scott showed last week he’s stronger with his legs than his arm. NAU needs to force the sophomore to throw the ball. 3. Keep heads up – Last season NAU collapsed when faced with adversity. Arizona Stadium will not be an easy place to forget mistakes, but a short memory will be crucial.

They said it:

Head Coach Jerome Souers “I’m a little concerned with being able to start the game and finding a rhythm and seeing what things we do well. We don’t have a lot of guys in our camp that are as big and as fast as a lot of guys on (Arizona’s) team. So, our approach has to be focused on self improvement and improving upon our fundamentals.

Longtime head coach returns, brings passion

and winning and losing then becomes the only thing,” Felton said. “It’s not the end of the world with me, winning or losing.” When winning was the sole goal, Felton felt like the players could not relax and play the game they love. Felton hopes to bring a well-rounded environment to the team with less focus on records and more attention on growth and relationships. With only two practices under his belt since his return, Felton knows beyond a doubt that this is where he belongs.

“We’re all very happy here, it’s a mutual admiration society,” he said. “My personality is a little off the wall, I’m not your typical coach and I don’t want to be. I just want to do things the way I believe they should be done.” Plainly put, the “right way” according to Felton is loving the game and the team. “I just want to give something back to the program again, the guys deserve more.” Felton said. “Laxcat fever, brother. Catch it! But beware, be very aware, there is no known cure.”

SPORTS BRIEFS Volleyball update

Head coach Dave Rubio recorded his 450th career win as Arizona volleyball had their fifth sweep of the season defeating the Santa Clara Broncos 3-0 Thursday night. The Wildcats received big plays from the seniors on the road with middle blocker Jacy Norton recording a .538 attacking percentage. Fellow senior Alanna Resch had four digs and two assists. “I really liked what Alanna gave us tonight,” Rubio said through Arizona Athletics. “She was a big boost.” In the first set,Arizona (7-0) was victorious, tak-

ing the lead with a 25-23 win. The Wildcats continued their dominance in the second set, winning easily 25-15. Arizona took the match 25-19 from the host Broncos at the Santa Clara Invitational. Sophomore Dana Hutchinson helped out the Wildcats defensively, registering 12 digs against Santa Clara while junior outside hitter Tiffany Owens notched 11 digs. Junior setter Paige Weber continued to rack the up the assists with 33 on the night. In stark contrast to last weekend’s play, Arizona limited its errors just 13 and made efficient serves and passes to take the match from Santa Clara. This marks the fifth time the Wildcats have

started their season 7-0. In the four other times, Arizona has made an appearance at the NCAA tournament. The last time volleyball started the season with a perfect record in seven games was in 2001 — their best start ever was 10-0 in 1998. The Wildcats will face Utah on Friday at 7pm to round out the tournament.

M-tennis sends three to invite

Led by sophomore Jason Zafiros, the Arizona men’s tennis team will compete in the first competition of the year at the Aggie Fall Invitational today. Head coach Tad Berkowitz will make the trip

to the New Mexico State Tennis Center in Las Cruces, N.M. Junior Geoff Embry and freshman Alex Johnson will also compete in the event that will begin today at 9 a.m. and continue until Sunday. “This is a great tournament to kick off the year,” Berkowitz said through the athletic department. “It’s a great opportunity for the guys to get a lot of matches in, especially Alex and Jeff, who will be competing for the Wildcats for the first time.” Arizona will be joined by five other teams: NAU, Texas Tech, Abilene Christian, New Mexico and New Mexico State. — Arizona Daily Wildcat

Author says not all ‘Secrets’ recommended By Amanda Seely Arizona Daily Wildcat

Phil Villarreal will be signing copies of “Secrets of a Stingy Scoundrel” at Barnes and Noble, 5130 E. Broadway Blvd., at 7 p.m. Friday. He will also be appearing at the UofA Bookstore Sept. 29 at 4:30 p.m.


hil Villarreal’s new book “Secrets of a Stingy Scoundrel: 100 Dirty Little Money-Grubbing Secrets” is an amusing guide to saving a few dollars, inspired by college life and the not-always-life-sustaining paychecks that come with it. “It really stems from my time in college when I was a freshman living in Kaibab (Residence Hall), and I was absolutely, completely dirt-poor,” said Villarreal, a reporter for the Arizona Daily Star. “A lot of college students go through that: You’re poor, but you’re in the exuberance of not living with your parents anymore, so you’re still having a good time,” he said. “But you’re thinking of creative ways to get around things, and save as much as you can and stretch whatever money you have as far as you can.” This book is not Villarreal’s first published work. “I actually self-published a book last year ‘cause I had this obsession of getting something in print before I turned 30,” he said. “That book was called ‘Stormin’ Mormon,’ but that wasn’t fulfilling to me, because anybody could self-publish a book.” On the eve of his milestone birthday, Villarreal found a literary agent to pitch “Secrets of a Stingy Scoundrel” to publishers. In February, a publisher decided to pick up the book, and it was in stores by late August. “That was the thrill of a lifetime there. That was what made my dream come true,”Villarreal said. “It’s been a really fast whirlwind and it’s been amazing.” Villarreal believes that the state of the economy helped convince the publisher to choose his book. “By then, we were deep into the recession, and I think that’s why the publisher was willing to take a chance on the book,” he said, “even though there’s some controversial things in there. But people are looking to save money, people are losing their jobs, let’s take a chance on this.” “Secrets of a Stingy Scoundrel” is full of tips that would be best implemented by college students. “They were funny but they

wouldn’t go very far,”Villarreal said. “They’re things you can’t really do as an upstanding adult that maybe you can do when you’re in college, or when you don’t have responsibilities and you’re not an ‘official real world grown-up.’” While the book does contain some money-saving ideas that could be put to use, such as seeking out free promotional t-shirts or taking extra ketchup packets from fast food restaurants, others probably shouldn’t be tried. “There’s a lot of dirty type things that are more fun to laugh at than actually do. I’m probably a horrible person for thinking of them, and then if

you do any of them you’re a borderline criminal,”Villarreal said with a laugh. Some of the tips include passing a cubic zirconium ring from Wal-Mart off as a family heirloom and reusing leftover milk after eating cereal. “I remember being in college and living in Kaibab, and the only place that was easy to get milk was this vending machine that was in the lobby, and it was like a dollar for like a half pint of milk,”Villarreal said. “So I would go down there, and I would get that milk because I liked to eat cereal every day. I would pour that into whatever generic cereal we were eating that day, Marshmallow Mateys probably,

and then I was finished, and you’d have that little bit of milk left at the end. And I would actually pour that back into the carton to save myself from having to buy more.” Villarreal is not recommending that people follow every single one of his “secrets,” but hopes that they themselves will brainstorm other horrifying ways to save money. “What I’d like it to do is start a conversation about really awful things that you can do to save money,” he said. “I think things like this occur to people in their daily lives, like, ‘What if I did this, but no, that’d be horrible.’ I took all of those ideas that came to me and

put them on paper.” An upcoming book signing at the UofA Bookstore gave Villarreal a chance to remember his years as a student, and to measure his successes. “You graduate from U of A, but it really doesn’t graduate from you. Even though I’ve been out of college for almost 10 years, it feels like I just graduated and I’ve only been out a few years,” he said. “It’ll be a sense of triumph to see that maybe I’ve made something of myself. I’ve got a book out, I’m talking about it here at the UofA Bookstore and I’m signing them. I think that will be something that will really go down in my memory.”

Sustainability program more than doubles in size

continued from page 1

At the first internship meeting of the year Wednesday night, the new interns were told what was expected from them for the program. Ash asked the interns to say why they decided to join the program. The interns called out answers such as to make a difference, to learn about sustainability or to find green ways to save the UA money. The interns split into different groups, or projects, that they will be working on for the year. The projects include solar dorms, Garden in the Desert, Compost Go-Live, Earth Day and general sustainability. Miriam Frieden, a conservation biology senior on the Compost GoLive team, said she wanted to be on this team because she is interested in learned about composting, but also wants to be able to teach other students. Each project has a manager, some of whom are students returning to the program and some of whom are new. Ash said she and Nuriddin will be working side-by-side with the new people until they get the hang out of it. The managers had

to apply for the position, and were chosen because they demonstrated leadership skills and knowledge, she said. The interns will be working on their specific projects for the entire year, but are encouraged to go to workshops and help out with the other projects, Ash said. “We do want to emphasize interdisciplinary education,” she said. Marcos Fernandez, an engineering management senior, said he chose to do the internship because he thought it would be a good way to learn more about sustainability, and to meet people who were also interested in it. Each of the interns was asked to bring $20 for a participation fee to the first meeting. The fee will cover transportation and other expenses for educational trips the interns will be taking, including an October retreat to Biosphere 2. The first day of the retreat will be a sustainability conference full of speakers and presentations. They will then spend the night for no cost, and volunteer their services the next day at Biosphere 2.

Social activity could pose health risks

sharing the pipe, how often they inhale and how good the smokers are at tending the coals. Because the sessions last longer than a typical cigarette break, users are exposed to more smoke. During a one-hour hookah session, smokers may inhale a volume of smoke comparable to consuming the volume of 100 to 200 cigarettes, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s Web site. The CDC states that hookah smokers face the same risk of harmful health effects as cigarette smokers. Oral cancer, lung cancer, reduced pulmonary function, heart disease and decreased fertility are some of the hazards due to shisha smoking. Other dangers include infectious diseases transmitted from pipe sharing such as herpes, hepatitis and tuberculosis. A common misconception is that the toxins in the tobacco are minimized due to the smoke passing through water, said Michael Cameron, clinical manager for Arizona Smoker’s Helpline. He said that even after it has passed through water, the smoke produced by a hookah contains high levels of toxic compounds, including carbon monoxide, heavy metals and cancer-causing chemicals. Hookah smoking delivers the addictive drug nicotine in at least as much toxicity as cigarette smoke. “The biggest problem is that additives, such as orange peel and rose petal fragrances, obscure the harshness of the smoke, so people don’t realize as easily that they are inhaling toxins and nicotine,” Cameron said. The National Institute on Drug Abuse said in its May Director’s Report the addictive profile of hookah compared to cigarettes is largely un-researched. However, the institute has called for further research in this area as the number of hookah smokers is surpassing the information available about its risks.

Vishal Ganesan, a classics junior, is one of many students attracted to the hookah lounge on Sept. 3rd at Espresso Art Cafe on University. Tim Glass/ Arizona Daily Wildcat

“There is no safe form of tobacco,” said professor Scott Leischow, the associate director for behavioral and social sciences research at the Arizona Cancer Center.“As long as you are digesting tobacco, you are digesting something addictive that has carcinogens that can cause cancer.” When asked why he smoked hookah, Bobbie Womack, a marketing sophomore, laughed and said,“They don’t let you smoke weed in public.”He smokes when he and his friends come together in the evening.“You don’t see it deteriorating your body, you just see people coming together.”
