Financial aid reform bill hits Congress By David Lightman McClatchy Newspapers
WASHINGTON — The House of Representatives is expected this week to back overhauling — and simplifying — how college students receive financial aid. The rules for awarding and repaying loans would remain unchanged, but the government would make all loans itself, ending the practice of subsidizing loans made by private lenders. The Obama administration, which has made revamping the student loan system a major domestic priority, has hailed the
Shelton, staff talk budget By Will Ferguson Arizona Daily Wildcat President Robert Shelton addressed questions and concerns from faculty and staff at the Gallagher Theater yesterday. Shelton opened the meeting by outlining the university’s troubled financial situation and the impact that the university’s budget is having on employees. He said the university has lost $100 million from the state budget over the last two years. Seventeen percent of the budget was cut last year and the university is expecting to lose an additional 5 percent in fiscal year 2010. Due to federal stimulus requirements, the state cannot cut the university’s budget below 2006 levels. While nearly all the budget numbers showed substantial losses of state revenue for the university, Shelton said the administration will not be instituting furloughs for university faculty and employees this year. In order to counterbalance the losses of state funding to the university system, Gov. Jan Brewer presented the UA with $60 million in federal stimulus money for the 2010 school year and an additional $50 million for the 2011 school year. However, federal stimulus money will not be available after fiscal year 2011, an impact Shelton has described as a“fiscal cliff.”By fiscal year 2011 the university is expecting a salary deficit of $70 to $75 million. Shelton said over the next two years university administration, employees and faculty need to work together to come up with independent sources of funding. “A new strategy has to be in play by 2012,”he said. Shelton attempted to separate fact from rumor with regard to layoffs and budget cuts, saying that on the very first day he arrived he made a pledge to the university’s deans that he would reveal budgets the day they came out. Once these numbers are available, they will be accessible through Human Resources, he said. “We are on the edge of losing top-notch faculty and employees that the university needs to remain competitive,”Shelton said. A chief concern among those at the meeting was how the university determines where to make budget cuts and where to provide funding. He emphasized that it isn’t up to the administration to determine what particular units in each department to cut. Shelton said the administration places a priority on giving tuition dollars to departments that do more teaching, but funding for departments is determined by several factors. In addition to the amount of teaching done by individual units, the administration considers how good certain departments BUDGET, page A3
bill as historic. “This is a big, big deal,”Education Secretary Arne Duncan said Tuesday at a news conference. House Education and Labor Committee Chairman George Miller, D-Calif., vowed that the legislation would help students at“no cost to taxpayers.” That depends on how one interprets budget data, however. The nonpartisan Congressional Budget Office found that the loan program changes should save the government $86.8 billion over the next 10 years. It also noted in its official July report
on the bill, however, that it would include spending all but $7.8 billion of that on aid to students and higher education. In an update last week, the CBO said economic changes could boost spending overall by $10.5 billion, meaning that the bill could add to the deficit. “The truth is, no one really knows how much this plan will cost,” said Rep. John Kline , R-Minn., the senior Education and Labor Committee Republican. Independent analysts agreed. Changes in the loan program will “save a big chunk of money,” said Marc FINANCIAL AID, page A3
By Alex Dalenberg Arizona Daily Wildcat The Arizona Students’ Association will be on the UA Mall today to raise support and awareness for the Student Aid and Fiscal Responsibility Act, a financial bid reform bill going before Congress this month. The student lobbying group will be asking students who owe money for college to sign bricks which will be used to build a symbolic “wall of debt.” “Most students don’t know what the fiscal responsibility act is,” said Nicole
Pasteur , an ASA student director. “Hopefully it will be sort of eyeopening and encourage students to explore (the bill) further,” she said. ASA will be on the Mall from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. as part of a statewide“Day of Action”urging Congress to pass the bill. Event organizers said they want to bring some attention back to financial aid reform. “Student involvement is crucial because health care has taken so much of the focus,” said Elma Delic -, vice chair for the ASA board of directors. “It’s huge for students,” she said.

The money donated by Hyundai will aid Brenda Wittman, named a Hyundai scholar, in her research in bacterial infection and blood clotting related to central venous catheters.
By Marissa Hopkins Arizona Daily Wildcat Childhood cancer patients painted colorful handprints on a white Hyundai Santa Fe yesterday morning after Hyundai’s Hope on Wheels donated $40,000 to the UA Steele Children’s Research Center for childhood cancer research. Brenda Wittman, a researcher at the center, was chosen as a Hyundai scholar for her research in bacterial infection and blood clotting related to central venous catheters. She said reducing clotting and infection will reduce the amount of time children have to spend in the hospital and improve their quality of life. After Sam Brnovich, Hyundai’s general manager of the western region, presented a check for $20,000 to the
Steele Center, the Hyundai Jim Click family presented another $20,000 check for the research. Brnovich said he was pleasantly surprised by the amount the Jim Click family donated, especially given the current economic climate. The Hope on Wheels program was started in Boston in 1998 and became a national program in 2004, Brnovich said. Dr. Fayez Ghishan, director of the Steele Center, said the support of corporations like Hyundai is very important to their research and to improving the lives of children. All of the children who participated in putting their handprints on the car got tshirts and gift bags. The decorated Santa Fe will be traveling around the country before it is auctioned off, Brnovich said.
Raza studies celebrates 40 years By Marissa Freireich Arizona Daily Wildcat Students, faculty and community members will gather today to celebrate 40 years of Raza studies. The ethnic studies program educates students about Latino and Chicano culture from a multi-cultural perspective. The goal of the event is to inform the community about Raza studies, according to Roberto Rodriguez, an assistant professor in Mexican American studies. “The idea is to strengthen the rela-
tionship between the communities we serve,” Rodriguez said. “It’s a cry to say we are human and all are human.” Participants from several communinty organizations, including Raza Studies TUSD and Mexican American and Raza Studies UA, will attend the event, which will take place in Cesar Chavez rooms 205 through 209 from 4 to 6 p.m. Rodriguez said there has always been opposition toward Raza studies because some people view it as un-American. Last year the UA proposed the combination of the four principal campus
cultural centers. The centers have a historic presence on campus and in the community, according to Rodriguez. He said the community told the administration that they did not approve of this decision, and the centers remained separate. This past summer, the state legislature proposed a bill that would eliminate funding for ethnic studies in K-12 education. “To be told that you cannot teach something is the same as saying there are things you cannot learn,”Rodriguez said.

To protest this bill, a group of about 150 members of the Tucson community marched from the Tucson Unified School District building to Joaquin Murrieta Park. About 50 students, faculty and community members continued from Tucson to Phoenix in the summer heat in relay fashion over a three-day period. The state legislature ended up dropping the bill, according to Rodriguez. “It wasn’t like we were dumb and crazy. It was to show that this is what we believe in,”he said.

Phony officer arrested after accidentally pulling over mayor SHREVEPORT, La. — Police say a man impersonating an officer with a flashing red light in his car has been arrested after he pulled over the wrong driver — the mayor of Shreveport, La. Police think the suspect was using the in-dash light to maneuver through traffic Monday night in northwest Louisiana.
OK, I’ll take your word for it. But do you think that maybe Paula should come back on the show and judge Ellen’s judging? That’d be kind of funny. (Laughs) Yeah, that’d be cool.
Mayor Cedric Glover says he was pulled over when the man drove behind him, but the fake officer then sped away. Glover says he followed the car and called police. Daniel Niederhelman, 21, of Shreveport has been charged with false personation of a police officer. Police seized the light and a handgun
from Niederhelman’s holster. Authorities say Niederhelman works for a private security company, but wasn’t authorized to use the light. Booking records did not list an attorney for Niederhelman. — The Associated Press

LOS ANGELES — Patrick Swayze personified a particular kind of masculine grace both on and off screen, from his roles in films like “Dirty Dancing” and “Ghost” to the way he carried himself in his long fight with pancreatic cancer. Swayze died from the illness Patrick Swayze on Monday in Los Angeles, his publicist said. He was 57. “Patrick Swayze passed away peacefully today with family at his side after facing the challenges of his illness for the last 20 months,” Annett Wolf said in a statement Monday evening. She declined to give details. Fans of the actor were saddened to learn in March 2008 that Swayze was suffering from an especially deadly form of cancer. When he first went public with the illness, some reports gave him only weeks to live, but his doctor said his situation was“considerably more optimistic”than that. Swayze acknowledged that time might be running out given the grim nature of the disease. “I’d say five years is pretty wishful thinking,” Swayze told ABC’s Barbara Walters in early 2009.“Two years seems likely if you’re going to believe statistics. I want to last until they find a cure, which means I’d better get a fire under it.” And that’s exactly what he did. In February, Swayze wrote an op-ed piece in the Washington Post titled, “I’m Battling Cancer. How About Some Help, Congress?” in which he urged senators and representatives to vote for the maximum funding for the National Institutes of Health to fight cancer as part of the economic stimulus package. He also appeared in the September 2008 live television event “Stand Up to Cancer,” where he pleaded: “I keep dreaming of a future, a future with a long and healthy life, a life not lived in the shadow of cancer, but in the light … I dream that the word ‘cure’ will no longer be followed by the words‘is impossible.’” A three-time Golden Globe nominee, Swayze became a star with his performance as the misunderstood bad boy Johnny Castle in“Dirty Dancing.”As the son of a choreographer who began his career in musical theater, he seemed a natural to play the role. Swayze himself earned three Golden Globe nominations, for “Dirty Dancing,”‘’Ghost” and 1995’s “To Wong Foo, Thanks for Everything! Julie Newmar.” Among his earlier films, Swayze was part of the starstudded lineup in Francis Ford Coppola’s 1983 adaptation of S.E. Hinton’s novel“The Outsiders.” Swayze was married since 1975 to Niemi, a fellow dancer who took lessons with his mother; they met when he was 19 and she was 15. A licensed pilot, Niemi would fly her husband from Los Angeles to Northern California for treatment at Stanford University Medical Center. — The Associated Press

CORRECTION The Sept. 15 article, “Senate hashes out ‘academic freedom,’” about this week’s Faculty Senate meeting, mischaracterized a speech by John Warnock, a professor of English. The article mischaracterized Warnock’s speech to the senate, saying he was dissatisfied with the administration’s approach to differential funding because faculty in departments bringing large amounts of grant money do less teaching. In particular, a quote from the article, “They didn’t choose to become educators. We did,” incorrectly depicted Warnock as attacking other academic departments for not bearing the brunt of teaching courses at the university. In actuality, Warnock said special interests outside the university who award grants and contracts “didn’t choose to become educators.” Warnock’s actual speech said a department’s ability to bring in grant money shouldn’t be the only factor in determining funding, but that grants and research remain an important part of the university. Warnock said, “It is necessary to do all we can to increase grants and contracts.” Warnock’s complete remarks to the Faculty Senate can be found under the corrected version of this story at www. dailywildcat.com. The Daily Wildcat regrets the error.

Bill to expand Pell grants continued from page A1
Goldwein, the policy director for the Committee for a Responsible Federal Budget, a watchdog group.“Will it be the right amount to offset the new spending? The obvious answer is we don’t know.” The bill would scrap much of the current student loan system, which critics say is too costly and too complicated. Currently, the federal government provides loans through two different programs. It lends directly to students, and it administers the guaranteed loan program, in which students get funds from private lenders, with most of the loan guaranteed by the government against default. The bill would end the guaranteed loan program after next summer; then the government would make all loans directly. That frightens some Congress members. “The U.S. Department of Education would become a behemoth federal bank,” Kline said. “Democrats have had their sights set on a government takeover of student lending for more than a decade.” The new program would create big savings and save money because of changes in subsidy rates, the CBO said. Some savings could be achieved with lower interest rates; the bill would set a new rate based on the price of 91-day treasury bills plus 2.5 percentage points. The rate would be adjusted annually. At the same time, though, the measure would expand the cost of the Pell Grant program, which helps lower-income students. Currently, the maximum annual award is $5,350. Under the bill, that would grow to $6,900 by 2019. The CBO estimated in July that the changes would cost the government at least $39.4 billion over that period. Members of the National Association of Student Financial Aid Administrators are divided on the bill’s merits. Justin Draeger, the organization’s vice president of public policy, likes the Pell Grant provisions. “Any investment we can make in Pell Grants is money well spent,”he said.

From political science to just politics
MAILBAG Attention pedestrians: look where you’re going
After reading Monday’s article concerning the war between cyclists and pedestrians, I was upset to see that the article is unabashedly biased towards pedestrians and places blame for all bicycle-pedestrian incidents squarely on the cyclists. This is wrong. Pedestrians are just as much to blame for on-campus accidents as cyclists are, and the attitude most pedestrians have towards on-campus traffic is lackadaisical to the point of frustration. I for one follow all traffic laws, signal my turns, etc., and I realize there are plenty of cyclists who don’t do this. However, there are plenty of pedestrians who cut off cyclists in bike paths and walk down the middle of the lane. I personally ran over someone last week
on the Bear Down bike path because she was talking on her cell phone and stepped into the bike path without looking both ways at the exact instant I began occupying the space directly in front of her. Was that my fault? Hell no, and I’m not going to be treated like it was. (I let her know it was her fault, and she stayed on her cell phone, bemoaning to the other party, “Some asshole just ran me over on his bike!”) Every single day I find myself swerving around idiots or braking so hard I almost fall off my bike because some stupid pedestrian decided that somehow the laws of physics don’t apply to fast-moving objects when those fast-moving objects aren’t cars. Too often, I hear pedestrians say,“What are you waiting for, they have to stop for us!”and/ or see them just meander across or down the middle of the bike path without a care in the
world for what cyclists must go through to avoid splattering them. Would you walk across Speedway while on your cell phone without checking to see that there’s no oncoming traffic? No? Then why would walk across a busy bike path? If cyclists are going to be ticketed for moving violations (which I totally agree with), pedestrians should be ticketed for jaywalking or otherwise illegally impeding vehicular traffic if they decide to walk down the bike lane (instead of the typically-marked “pedestrian traffic only” sidewalk conveniently located directly adjacent to the lane). If anything else, all I ask is that you LOOK BOTH WAYS BEFORE CROSSING THE STREET! — Clayton Chu aerospace engineering senior

Attendance policies don’t have a place in college setting
can’t remember exactly when it began, but lately the University of Arizona seems to be cracking down on absences and enforcing much stricter attendance and punctuality policies than before. What does strict enforcement of a silly attendance policy accomplish? Not much of anything, if you ask me. It seems ridiculous that many professors, some of mine included, say things like,“If you’re more than 3 minutes late, I’d rather you not come in at all. There is no excuse for being more than 3 minutes late.” Basically, you’re telling me that the first 5-10 minutes of class are more important than the hour that follows? Why then, don’t I just go to class for the first 10 minutes and then leave? Oh, that’s not cool either? It disturbs my classmates? Never mind then. I figure that since we’re paying for a service, then you don’t have the right to tell us that if we’re late we can’t partake. Any other industry at least tries to be accommodating (for example: restaurants, doctors, dentists, car service centers, etc.), while some professors seem to think they have the right to belittle and embarrass people. Who needs a guilt trip for showing up late or missing a class? Not me; I could get treated horribly for free rather than paying thousands of dollars for it.
I understand and appreciate the difficult path taken by professors in order to achieve their career status, and I also appreciate that they have a job to do, but I’d appreciate the Chris same kind of considWard eration from them that they demand from me. columnist While it’s fairly rare for instructors to be late to class, I wouldn’t throw a fit about it, nor would I feel insulted by it. Of course I know it wasn’t your idea to make it an 8 a.m. class, but coming in at 8 a.m. doesn’t pay my mortgage like it does for you, professor. What pays my mortgage is that job that doesn’t end until 2 a.m.. So I apologize if you feel I’m somehow disrespecting your work by trying to earn a living, but the conundrum is that I need to work to go to school. On top of it, if I can get an A in the class without having to attend half the classes, then the only thing that means is it’s a shame that I had to spend $900 on a class that I didn’t really need, except to graduate. God forbid I don’t go and “learn,” and god forbid the university allows us to take classes that pertain to what we want to do rather than topics that many of us find irrelevant. Student:“I want to be an accountant after
I graduate.” Adviser:“OK, you’re going to have to start by taking this sociology class and that literature class.” Student:“Huh?” What’s the deal if I actually get sick? I know I can miss two days, great, but any more than that and I’m screwing myself. So, sorry to the rest of you, but I’m going to have to come in on Thursday with the swine flu, because I can’t afford to miss another class. I apologize if you end up getting sick and having to attend class anyway, but it’s a catch-22, you see. Sure hope this flu doesn’t somehow rapidly spread! My question is, when did a grade become lashed to attendance and not to the quality of the work completed? If I turn in work on time, if my test grades are high, why should I deserve to get less than an A for doing A work? Not that I’m used to getting A’s, but the same argument works for B’s, too.

aculty at the University of Arizona are underpaid and underappreciated, but none more so than those of the political science department. Political science faculty had to endure not only the consolidation of four colleges into one, but also the slanderous claims that they have set out to do evil by propagating their personal beliefs, rather than teach. That’s right, the so-called“conspiracy”is that a group of political science professors have joined together to teach — I mean indoctrinate — the next generation of leaders with liberal propaganda. On Monday, the Daily Wildcat ran an article detailing the registered political affiliations of political science professors, none of whom are registered Republicans. It reads,“Of 14 UA professors teaching political science classes this semester, nine are Democrats, two have no designated political party and three aren’t registered to vote.” While there’s clearly a Democratic majority, there are still five professors who may self-identify as Republican or conservative. Unfortunately, there was no further research into the remaining professors’ affiliations. The usage of the term “liberal bias” is like the current conception of “socialism.” Everyone thinks they know what it means when they don’t. The emphasis on political affiliation distracts from any substantive discussion about politically-motivated instructional bias. The question should be: Does political affiliation affect the quality of teaching? If so, how does it change the value of the educational experience? If there are legitimate concerns that a professor is teaching or favoring personal views over substantive, empirical subject matter, it would demand an investigation. There’s nothing improper about professors acknowledging their personal views, as long as they are not teaching or favoring their own opinions over concrete subject matter. Registered party affiliations are rudimentary measures of political views, anyway. A registered Democrat may be a social conservative, while a Republican could be fiscally liberal. Political science courses cover a wide range of subjects, from economics to political theory to social welfare. Even if personal political views drastically alter teaching methods, a registered Democrat might teach an international economics course with a conservative bias. Those who judge professors by registered political affiliation are too lazy even to stereotype accurately. The acknowledgement of this imbalance has gone from observation to overblown endorsement. When asked about these figures, Mike Cole, the head of the Pima County Young Republicans, said they prove a“liberal bias.”How shocking! Posing that question to
the local head of the Republican Party is like asking a UA student if ASU sucks. It’s an overly Dan simplistic, baitSotelo ing question meant to evoke columnist a pre-desired response. Political science professors at the UA are neither robots nor crazed fundamentalists. Their political views and value systems are defined by their educational and personal experiences, not media propaganda or prejudicial tendencies. If they endorse a particular political view, they will not scream that you’re going to hell for believing something else. Professors stress the importance of logical reasoning and strong arguments over their personal views. Asserting that these professors are uncontrollably guided by their personal opinions is as offensive as it is incorrect. Even more absurd than the original claims are the so-called “solutions”that are, in reality, more likely to compound, not alleviate this issue. Mike Cole would like the university to make political affiliation part of the class schedule. That way, students can hope to never hear an opposing viewpoint. He also would like a university mandate to balance the political science department. Cole said that a mandate to balance the political science is not like affirmative action for Republican professors, but rather that“it’s just fair.”Actually, affirmative action is exactly what this proposed“balance”would be like. Merriam-Webster’s defines affirmative action as“an active effort to improve the employment … opportunities of members of minority groups.” 1. Republican professors are members of a minority group at the University of Arizona. 2. A mandate is much more than an active effort, it’s a requirement. So Cole wants to require the increased hiring of a minority group, yet also deny that it’s affirmative action. In fact, the only difference between the affirmative action of college admission processes and Cole’s version, is that where public universities receive federal grant money for boosting the racial and ethnic diversity of student population, the UA would simply be required to“balance”their political science faculty. In terms of political affiliation, there will always be a“bias”one way or the other, unless a group is split exactly 50/50. Intentionally “balancing”any department in terms of political views is not fair because it displaces true qualifications for professors. There is nothing wrong with questioning the views or methods of teachers; in fact, teachers are paid to answer questions. To accuse UA educators of indoctrinating their students, without evidence, is at best cowardly, and at worst, completely discriminatory. — Dan Sotelo is a senior majoring in political science.

Clickers salvation of the mammoth class F
or those who don’t know, the clicker is fast becoming integral to the teaching of undergraduate college students and, to a lesser extent, middle school and high school students as well. Further, the fanatical efficiency with which emergent learning technology like the clicker is to be implemented into classrooms is a consolatory act. By that I mean, as class sizes get bigger and bigger, the general outcry for better student/teacher engagement and interaction is going to grow too. There are two ways to handle criticism of the big class model: make classes smaller or enhance the format of big classes so that, in theory, an almost limitless number of students can at least feel like they’re engaged and “getting it.” Right now there are three kinds of clickers for sale in the UofA Bookstore. The “iClicker” in its big, sleek, sealed-so-as-to-be-impossible-to-open-without-the-jaws-of-life plastic case, sells for $37.50. The Interwrite personal response system, or PRS, which is far more modestly packaged than the iClicker, is priced at $52.00 and has pretty pink letters and a three-leafed insignia that splays like a
dinosaur foot and looks vaguely like a marijuana plant. The Turning Technologies clicker’s box James is printed with the phrase Carpenter “turning ideas into solutions” and claims the highcolumnist est price tag at $53.30. The cool thing about the clicker (whichever brand you choose) is that it instantly gratifies. Anyone who’s had a big lecture class has probably used a clicker, especially those who have taken or are taking a lower-level science prerequisite. For those who’ve never encountered a clicker in practice before, a clicker is meant to work like this: a professor lectures ad nauseam on a certain topic, interspersing his or her PowerPoint presentations with review questions. These questions are designed to sync into a clicker system so that students can all read the question projecting at the front of the room and, using the clicker, select option A, B, C or D to answer. These answers are then converted into percentages and said percentages are turned into bar graphs/pie charts so that everyone can see what percentage of the class got the answer right. Also, the teacher gets to be made aware, with grinding mathematical efficiency, whether anyone
other than the first two rows of the lecture hall actually get or are even engaged in what she’s talking about. So in some ways clickers are great: they add a new level of interactivity to big, soulsucking lecture classes, forcing students to stay more involved. What sucks about the clicker, on the other hand, is that it’s basically an indication of the permanence of the large lecture teaching method. It’s hard to find any faculty member on this campus who’ll say that teaching a 500-person class is a great way for students to learn. One big issue is that big classes force the subjects being taught to regress; that is, to be simplified and standardized in such a way that there’s always a “right” answer amidst several wrong answers. Obviously, very few disciplines are that cut-and-dried, and so the true depth of the material is lost as it becomes more and more processed for mass consumption. What most professors will say, however, is that it’s the value of undergraduate education that’s changing. It has become more a necessity than a privilege, a ubiquitous prerequisite for marginal success in life (and a decently paying job). So the crux here is that classes are just going to get bigger and bigger
— we should be thankful that nobody at this University, as of yet, has to endure being the class of 2020. — James Carpenter is a senior and an English major. He can be reached at letters@wildcat. arizona.edu.

Intoxicated man hits head, visits hospital
University of Arizona Police Department officers were dispatched to the Kaibab-Huachuca Residence Hall on Sept. 7 at 12:31 a.m. in reference to an 18-year-old male subject who hit his head on a plate glass window. Upon arrival, police met with a resident assistant, who led them to the man’s room. Once inside, officers found the subject lying on his side in his bed and attempted to question him. According to police, the man had bloodshot eyes, slurred speech and the strong odor of intoxicants coming from his mouth and body. He was able to tell officers his name and age, but was unable to recall the events of the evening. Officers found several witnesses, one of whom was able to tell police what had happened. According to the witness, the man had returned to the residence hall and was attempting to get into the building. In doing so, he lost his balance and fell into the door, breaking the window with his head. He then fell to the ground, striking his head on the concrete. Several unidentified persons helped the man into the building and up to his room. Moments later, the man was found outside of his door, trying to use his CatCard to get into his room, which is secured using a standard keyed doorknob. The man was helped into his room and residents called police to provide the man with medical attention. The man was transported via ambulance to University Medical Center. According to hospital officials, the man sustained no major injuries during his fall, but was deemed extremely intoxicated. Police referred the incident to the Dean of Students Office.
Conspicuous litterbug charged with MIP
UAPD officers observed a male subject walking near Vine Avenue and Lee Street drinking from a red cup on Sept. 7 at 12:30 a.m. According to police, when the man spotted officers, he threw his cup on the ground. Police made contact with the man, who was identified with his California driver’s license as underage. The man admitted to police that he had been drinking that evening. Officers cited the man on charges of minor in possession and drinking in public. Police also warned the man against littering and released him at the scene.
Missing key leads to hallway campout
UAPD officers responded to Coronado Residence Hall on Sept. 7 at 5:39 a.m. in reference to an unknown man asleep in a hallway. Upon arrival, officers made contact with the sleeping man and he identified himself with a California driver’s license. Officers could detect the odor of intoxicants coming from the man’s mouth as he spoke. According to police, the man admitted to drinking that evening at an unknown fraternity house and claimed to only have had a few beers. The man did not know what time he had returned to the residence hall but claimed that he had no room key, so he went to sleep on the floor in the hallway. The man refused medical treatment. Police cited the man on charges of being a minor in possession and released him to his room.
Wanted man served an injunction
UAPD officers responded to the intersection of Sixth Street and Park Avenue on Sept. 7 at 9:15 a.m. in order to serve an injunction. Upon arrival, UAPD met with Tucson Police Department officers who had a man in custody. The man was wanted on several outstanding warrants and had been flagged by UAPD in regard to a separate matter. The man was served the injunction against harassment at 9:25 a.m. According to police, the injunction prohibits the man from having any contact with the woman who filed the order. After the order was served, UAPD notified the woman who filed the injunction that the service had been performed.
Facebook faux pas
UAPD dispatch received a telephone call on Sept. 7 at 11:06 p.m. from a female student who claimed that she had received a disturbing Facebook message from a “friend.” According to the woman, she had met the man during the first week of school. She did not see the man very often and considered him an acquaintance, only because they occasionally messaged each other online. She had received a Facebook message from the man that described in detail how he watched her daily routine and waited outside of her dorm room so that he could stalk her. The woman responded back that she felt the message was inappropriate. The man later replied that he had only sent the message because he was taking medication for a recent dental procedure. According to police, the woman did not feel threatened by the man’s message and she was not immediately concerned for her safety. She declined to pursue any judicial course of action and she did not want the man to be contacted by police. She did tell officers that if the man threatened or contacted her again she would call the police.
Thief goes shopping in parked car
UAPD dispatch received a telephone call on Sept. 7 at 11:42 p.m. in reference to a male student who reported multiple items taken from his vehicle parked outside of the Alpha Phi Omega fraternity house at 1339 E. First St. According to the man, he left his vehicle in the parking lot on Sept. 7 at approximately 11:30 a.m. and when he returned at 11:00 p.m. he noticed several items missing from his vehicle. Among the items missing were three pairs of paints, an unknown number of coins and a pair of Nike basketball shorts. According to police, the vehicle showed no signs of forced entry. The fraternity president told police that the parking area is monitored by surveillance cameras and agreed to submit any useful footage to police. Police have no suspects or witnesses at this time.

Douglas’ Stoops family homecoming nickname oddly flattering Since when was doo-doo good? By Brian Kimball Arizona Daily Wildcat
Michael Ignatov/Arizona Daily Wildcat
Arizona head coach Mike Stoops jogs off the playing field at Arizona’s Sept. 5 win over the Central Michigan University Chippewas. The former Iowa Hawkeye safety heads back to his old home field at Kinnick Stadium in Iowa City, Iowa, this Saturday.
Three coaches and brothers played football at Iowa, two return as Wildcats By Tim Kosch Arizona Daily Wildcat It’s been a turbulent decade for college football. The Bowl Championship Series system continues to give everyone migraines, onceprominent programs like Notre Dame have struggled and head coaches have had a harder time settling down with one school than Jerry Seinfeld did with women on his hit sitcom. Despite the changing times, one thing that has remained constant is the prevalence of the Stoops family as a staple in college football. Three Stoops brothers were college stars at Kinnick Stadium, where Arizona travels this weekend to take on the University of Iowa. “It’s exciting to go back there and play, and to see the place that I played,” said Arizona head coach Mike Stoops. He, Oklahoma head coach Bob Stoops and Arizona defensive coordinator Mark Stoops cite their experience at Iowa as a firm foundation for where they are now. But it was almost very, very different. Bob Stoops, the oldest of the three, didn’t receive much attention from Division I schools out of high school, according to Mike. With nowhere else to go, Bob chose Iowa. After the Hawkeyes suffered through a
miserable season his freshman year, he planned on transferring. That is, until now-legendary head coach Hayden Fry was hired. Bob Stoops decided to stay, and the rest is history. “I’m glad he decided to stay,” Mike Stoops said of his older brother. “It probably changed the course of our whole family.” Mike Stoops decided to follow his brother and became one of the most decorated Hawkeyes in school history. He was a two-time All-Big Ten selection at strong safety and a centerpiece of the 1986 team that reached the Rose Bowl. Soon, Mark Stoops followed suit and became the third Stoops to play for the Hawkeyes. “It was a good experience,” Mark Stoops said. “I was very familiar with the program and the coaches. We were so close with the coaches at that time.” The personal relationships with the coaches were among the reasons the Stoops brothers have been able to assert themselves as one of college football’s first families. Mike Stoops remembers his former coach not only for his work ethic, but for his antics as well. “His white pants, his glasses, his windbreaker,” Mike Stoops joked about Fry. “He used to catch me
leaving the office early (during a graduate assistant position at Iowa), leaving my light on and the door open. I thought I was fooling him for a while. He was still there working, and I was long gone. They weren’t paying me enough then.” Mike Stoops’ light-heartedness was refreshing but brief as he quickly resigned himself to the fact that this weekend is about the Wildcats trying to improve to 3-0 and not about personal back-stories. “I haven’t made any special plans to see anyone; it’s just kind of business as usual and we’ll just do our normal routine,” Mike Stoops said. “All that hype is great, but once the ball is snapped it’s really insignificant who you’re playing. It’s really all about just concentrating on the things you have to do to win, and that’s what we’ll focus on this week.” The Stoops brothers maintained that they were not nostalgic. But returning to the place where their football careers began — both as players and then as graduate assistant coaches — must at least be strange. They could take some advice from outside wide receivers coach Dave Nichol, who went through the same thing earlier in his career when he returned to his alma mater, Texas Tech, as a coach for
Baylor University. “It was really weird,” Nichol said of returning to the place he used to play. “Being in the visitors’ locker room, it was definitely a whole different deal because you want to beat them real bad. It’s unique, there are definitely some mixed emotions.” Mike Stoops has been admirable throughout the week, parlaying the speculation over any extra incentive to beat his former team. But the rest of the team might feel differently. “You always try not to think of it that way and you try to look at it like, ‘We play one game a week, let’s get focused and win that game,’ but the way I know our kids feel about coach (Mike) Stoops, they want to win it for him,” Nichol said. The affection and respect from players is something that Mike Stoops has yearned for since the beginning of his tenure as Arizona’s head coach and something that he had for his coaches as an Iowa player. For Mike Stoops, it’s coming full circle. “It’s just nice to see people that you haven’t seen in a while, good friends that helped you succeed,” he said. “You want to prove that you can coach,” he added. “We all have great pride in what you do as a coach and (Iowa) was significant in my development, so that’s important to me.”
Arizona wide receiver David Douglas was hoping to make a name for himself last season as a freshman. He worked hard every day in practice and kept his chin up when he wasn’t getting much playing time. His hard work paid off, at least to some extent, during his first season in cardinal and navy. “David played some decent minutes last year for a true freshman and he continues to develop,” said UA head coach Mike Stoops. “… David’s a very good receiver and a very reliable guy.” He caught one pass for 20 yards in mop-up duty in a 70-0 season-opening win against Idaho and had one catch each against Oregon State and Oregon, for seven and 14 yards, respectively. While those numbers might not be much to look at, it was his consistent play in practice last season and throughout summer and fall camp that caught the UA coaching staff’s eye. “He knows that you have to do all the things off the field to be good and he knows what you have to do on the field to be good. We saw (against NAU) all those things come together,”said inside receiver coach Garret Chachere.“… That was a big day for him and for him to see the hard work coming through and things working out for him, it was special for me and special for him.” Douglas had two grabs for 22 yards in Arizona’s 19-6 win against Central Michigan. His five catches for 43 yards in the 34-17 UA win against NAU could be a taste of things to come if he keeps working to improve. Last season, then-quarterback Willie Tuitama said Douglas was making a name for himself because he had some of the best hands on the team. But a slip of the tongue revealed just how much attention Douglas was getting. “We call him Doo-Doo,” Tuitama said with a chuckle. But why would somebody allow themselves to be called Doo-Doo? Because of what it implies, of course. “It kind of started with me and Dave Roberts playing the same position,” Douglas said.“His name is Dave and my name is Dave and one our coaches — he’s not here anymore, coach (Michael) Smith — he started calling me Doo-Doo just because … well you could just say that it was because I was doo-dooing on people.” And by that, his coaches and teammates meant he was as “regular” of a DOUGLAS, page A7
Former PG replaces Hansen at the mic Now a broadcaster, Matt Muehlebach hopes to fill in for longtime radioman By Lance Madden Arizona Daily Wildcat
Courtesy J and L Photography/Arizona Athletics
Former broadcaster Ryan Hansen sits at his media table courtside in US Airways Center during a Dec. 14, 2008, game against Gonzaga University. Hansen was replaced by former UA point guard Matt Muehlebach this year as broadcaster.
On March 13, 1993, Ryan Hansen sat in the stands in McKale Center and witnessed the UA men’s basketball team crush UCLA 99-80. Since that blowout, he has sat courtside at every single game in McKale — on the bench as a team manager and coordinator of basketball operations, or at the media table as a radio color commentator. Hansen has traveled in a working capacity to all but one Wildcat away game since 1995. But this fall the Canyon Del Oro High School and UA graduate won’t travel with the team. Instead, he will find himself in the stands for home games for the first time since that senior day in 1993. At the conclusion of last season, athletics director Jim Livengood asked Hansen to step away from his radio duties to focus full-time on his fundraising role as the assistant director of athletics for development. Former Wildcat point guard Matt Muehlebach (1988-91), now a local attorney, will be replacing Hansen on
the air, working alongside play-by-play man Brian Jeffries. “It’s going to feel very weird,”Hansen said.“And what will probably be just as weird will be seeing (UA head coach) Sean Miller in the house. The transition from that point won’t be that weird because it will be a whole new program, a whole new deal for me.” After Livengood asked Hansen to step down from his radio job, Jeffries searched for former players in Tucson, and, this summer, presented Muehlebach with a chance to audition for the spot. Then Muehlebach called Hansen. Though their times with the team never overlapped, Muehlebach and Hansen became good friends years ago. In fact, Hansen used to housesit for Muehlebach when he’d go out of town. Needless to say, there weren’t any hard feelings from Hansen during what was certain be become an awkward situation. “He picked my brain a little bit and wanted to make sure I was in a good position with my job, and I am,”Hansen HANSEN, page A7

Athlete of the Week:
Editor’s Note: UA junior running back Nic Grigsby ran for 207 yards — a career high — and scored two touchdowns on 15 carries during the Wildcats’ 3417 win against NAU last weekend. The Arizona Daily Wildcat’s Brian Kimball caught up with Grigsby after Tuesday night’s practice to discuss his performance on Saturday, his goals for the season and his thoughts about the NCAA 2010 football game.

You had a monster day against the Lumberjacks. Have you ever had a day like that before? Uh, no. But before the game I was joking with my coach and players on the team. I was like, “Yeah, I’m going to try and go for 13 carries and about 150 (yards) and two dubs (touchdowns).” But I guess I did a little bit better than that. I’ve got to ask you though, why couldn’t you make that 94-yard run a 95-yard touchdown run? (Smiles) It was too long, too long and I was running with a sprinter. I mean, I’m fast, so I know he was moving. I thought I was in front of him and I started pulling up, but that’s just me not finishing my run. At about the NAU 40-yard line it looked like he might catch up to you. I started feeling him and I started to pull
away, but then he started to catch up again. I thought I pulled away but he was still coming and right there running. He just made that last jump. All season long, UA head coach Mike Stoops has said you are one of the most underrated backs in the country. What are your thoughts on that? I mean, I just want to prove people wrong day in and day out. Every Saturday I come ready to go and ready to move the ball down the field. Do you have any personal goals for the season? No. Just to win that Doak Walker (an annual award given to the country’s best running back) and hopefully get on that Heisman list at the end of the season. What about (any goals) as far as catching the ball goes? Catching the ball, as soon as they throw it to me that’s a catch right there. The coaches know that all of our backs have really good hands out of the backfield. It’s just a matter of if the quarterbacks are getting it to us or not. But if they throw it to us we’ll catch it. Do you play the NCAA football game very much? Oh, I play Madden a lot now, but I do play NCAA. Did they get you right? Oh, they had me alright on there. I should have been a little bit better, but you know, that’s just how it is. Better at what? Psh, just overall. (Laughs)

performer as you could ask for — that and he was making people look “like doo-doo” when they tried to defend him. “It’s a lot more fun. For him, he likes to be called Doo-Doo rather than Dave now, but after he graduates and gets in the working world I think he’ll want to be called Dave,” Chachere said. “… I do call him Doo-Doo every now and then, but not very often. … His momma calls him Dave, so I call him Dave.” Aside from an interesting nickname, Douglas also has an interesting skill set and surprising athleticism. The 6-foot-1, 190-pounder played basketball and football, and ran for the track team at North High School in McKinney, Texas. “Most people underestimate my athletic ability, but I can get up and dunk it,” Douglas said. His physical attributes allow him to do more than just be a rotation player in the Wildcats’ receiving group. He’s listed at No. 2 on the depth chart as the team’s punt returner, and the more chances DooDoo has had to make plays, the more his coaches

hardest, regardless of what you’re doing. But it feels good to get into the action,” Douglas said. “It feels good after working hard in the off-season and all that stuff. … The more game action you get, the more of a feel you get for the speed, and the more confident you get.”

Men’s soccer off to strong start Team dominates NAU, will now trip to SDSU’s Aztec Cup By Tyler Kurbat Arizona Daily Wildcat
The Arizona men’s club soccer program made a statement this past weekend in Flagstaff, Ariz., and is looking to make its mark in San Diego State University’s Aztec Cup on Sept. 18-20. “It was a really solid start to our season,”team vice president Nicholas Markel said. “There was nothing (NAU) could do.” Although the team has been separated into ‘A’ and ‘B’ squads, both Arizona groups dominated the competition. The ‘A’ team held NAU scoreless in a 2-0 victory, and the ‘B’ team defeated New Mexico Tech 9-0 and 6-0 in two contests. “Chalk (the shutouts) up to our defense,”Markel said. “We don’t expect to get scored on too much this year. In past years, that has been a problem.” As for the Arizona’s preparation this season, the team feels like it has a solid advantage. “We have like 35 field players and five goalies on the team so practicing is really great because we can run two full-sided games at a time,” Arizona goalie Giuseppe DeMasi said. Players who have been standing out so far according to DeMasi and Markel include defender Dan Redden, forward Sean Blea and Alberto Romagnolo. With their help, Arizona has demonstrated a much more physical presence on the field. “Romagnolo is a guy that should be playing professionally,” Markel said. “He just has that gracefulness on the field.” Having executed such sound performances early on, the team shifts its focus and excitement ahead to this weekend’s Aztec Cup tournament, where the Wildcats look to take on Weber State University, California and USC. The California soccer teams will provide a challenge for Arizona. “California teams are always pretty tough, because they also have Division I programs out there,” Markel said. That’s because some of the California players play on the club teams as prerequisites for the Division I squads. That factor hasn’t fazed the Wildcats, though. “Everyone’s excited for (the Aztec Cup),” DeMasi said, “especially all the (returnees). SDSU is just an awesome atmosphere to play in. They have a really bad astro-turf field, but it’s still a great tournament setting. We always have a strong showing at that tournament.”
THE BEST KNIGHTS OUT IN TUCSON! SEPTEMBER 22-27

said.“We talked about the job and what it entails, and the pitfalls and excitement and all the things that go along with it.” The next step was for Muehlebach to audition. The UA player who won the most games ever — going 117-21 and never losing in McKale — came to the arena with his arms full of notes, and was led to a studio where he was outfitted with a headset and seated in front of a big TV. Last season’s Arizona-UCLA game was played without sound, and Brian Jeffries took the playby-play reins. Despite not having any radio experience, Muehlebach impressed as an analyst. “He was exceptionally well prepared,” said associate athletic director of event operations Suzy Mason, who was part of the hiring committee. “He really had an outstanding interview process, and he’s very articulate. His basketball IQ and the fact that he’s an (alumnus) was huge.” Muehlebach said that his law practice wouldn’t be affected, even when he travels with the team out of town. “This day and age, with palm cell phones, the Internet, e-mail and all that, you’re really not very far away at all,” he said. Muehlebach’s first away game will be Nov. 23, when the Wildcats play the University of Wisconsin in the Maui Invitational. Coincidentally, Hansen’s first away game as a radio analyst was on Nov. 24, 1997 against Boston College at the Maui Invitational. “(Muehlebach) will be in similar shoes, no question,” Hansen said. Besides being familiar with his surroundings, Muehlebach’s transition will be facilitated by the fact that he has a history with Miller. When he played for Arizona, the Wildcats went 1-1 against Pittsburgh, where Miller was a star point guard. “It’s really an exciting time for the whole program, so I’m really excited to be part of that,” Muehlebach said. “It’s going to be a lot of fun.” Meanwhile, Hansen will work more with the Wildcat Club to generate revenue for the athletics department. He will also watch — from the stands — as this upcoming season unfolds. It is the last one for which he is in charge of scheduling the team’s nonconference games, which he has done since 2001. “I’m slowly stepping away from that inner circle I’ve been in for so long,” Hansen said.“It is going to be a new year for me.”

The Daily Wildcat and UA Career Services are teaming up to provide Career assistance to our dynamic UA readership Michael Friedman graduated with a Business Management degree in May 2008. He came here with the primary goal of entering the Eller College of Management, followed by playing hockey for the Icecats but the academic demands of college were not conducive to his hockey activities. After playing for 15 years, his hockey career was put on hold so he could devote his time to academics. Even with his future career getting full focus, Michael felt lost. During that uncertain time, he said the support he received, both from Career Services and Eller, proved vital. Introduced to the Career Services’ online job/internship search feature, Wildcat JobLink, he found a fantastic summer internship at Nestle Purina, working out of Chicago (his hometown)…the perfect position for a young man who once wanted to become a vet! For Michael’s complete success story go to www. career.arizona.edu, click on “News” for the articles archives and then filter (at the bottom of the page) for Success Stories.

The Wildcats won their first two football games this season and now it’s time for students to get their game on…at the UA Career Services’ Kick-Off today from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. in Suite 411 of the Student Union Memorial Center. One brand new feature at this year’s Kick-off will be the seven government agencies showcasing career opportunities. Last week news agencies reported that in the next three years, 270,000 “missioncritical” federal jobs will have to be filled assuming Baby Boomers retire in the anticipated droves. This Baby Boomer Retirement Exodus could mean great opportunities for today’s college students. There’s no better time for you to get off the bench and into the game than right now. Besides a one-on-
one with the government agencies attending, you’ll be able to: •Get your resume critiqued by professionals and employers. •Get psyched (and prepare) for the upcoming career fair. •Start (or complete) your Campus Interviewing registration. •Learn more about the resources available to you from Career Services. •Talk to representatives from the FBI, U.S. Forest Service, U.S. State Department, I.R.S., Social Security Administration, Pima County and the City of Tucson, about hiring opportunities in their agencies. •Receive a list of employers attending the upcoming career fair. •The first 100 students who practice their One-Minute Commercial at the Mock Fair booth will receive
a stylish (and completely free) red UA cap. •Enter a drawing for a Dillard’s suit (One men’s and one women’s professional business suits will be awarded up to $495 value each). All that and you can grab a piece of pizza and soda too (while supplies last). Never mind the big tailgate party. What you’ll find at the UA Career Services’ Kick-Off is solid information that is critically important to YOUR future in an informal setting. Jump Start Your Job Search TODAY!
