ABOR approves budget requests By Luke Money DAILY WILDCAT

FLAGSTAFF — The Arizona Board of Regents approved university funding requests for fiscal year 2013 during its meeting on Thursday, but not without debate. The funding request, which totaled $801.7 million between the three universities and the board, represents a $119.3 million increase from the budget for fiscal year 2012. The

majority of this increase comes in items classified as one-time expenditures, totaling $83.2 million. “These budget requests reflect the realities of the current economic conditions of the state and represent just a fraction of the true needs of the universities,” said regents Chairman Fred DuVal. Much of the discussion stemmed from two primary points — a provision slipped into the UA’s proposal

which would allot funding to develop a specialized nursing program related to cancer treatment at the Phoenix Biomedical Campus, and the disproportionate distribution of state funds. Though the cancer nursing program request accounted for only $1 million of the UA’s $14.5 million in requests for the biomedical campus, Arizona State University President Michael Crow

Banned Books returns By Alexandra Bortnik DAILY WILDCAT


Dr. Kathleen Young, a new psychologist at Counseling and Psychological Services, occupies her office in Campus Health Service on Wednesday. Young left her private practice at the end of July to start her new position at CAPS on Aug. 15, where she says she expects that the university environment will be more stimulating.

Q&A: CAPS psychologist brings knowledge of trauma treatment By Eliza Molk DAILY WILDCAT

Dr. Kathleen Young is the new staff psychologist at Counseling and Psychological Services and the coordinator of clinical services at the OASIS Program, a violence and sexual assault prevention program at Campus Health Service. Daily Wildcat: Where are you from, and why did you decide to come to the UA? Young: Although I’m not from Chicago, I was there for quite a long time. I had an internship year here in Tucson at the University of Arizona Health Science(s) Center way back when at the end of my doctoral program. I really loved Tucson, and I knew it was some place I’d like to relocate. There was an advertisement for a position to help victims

I hope to be here indefinitely, and I’m planning to make a home at both the UA and Tucson.

What do you think are the most common problems for college-age students? There are certainly lots of transition and adjustments issues. Unfortunately, sexual assault is a big issue in this age group, and it’s important to address. Many students haven’t learned what is good in a relationship for them, and this is a time to start practicing how to have a healthy relationship. Substance abuse issues are also a really big deal. If you could give students one piece of advice, what would it be? Take this time to get to know more about yourself outside of just academics. Students should start thinking about their life goals and who they are as people, as well as their relationships.

The UA’s annual Banned Books Week will feature a performance, exhibit and speaker panel to celebrate the freedom to read from Sept. 24 to Oct. 1. The Associated Students of the University of Arizona and the UA chapter of the Progressive Librarians Guild will put on a theatrical performance “ReadOUT, ACTout” based on four frequently challenged children’s books that show alternative families and gender expressions. The performance was inspired by an event that took place at San Francisco State University earlier this year. Stephan Elizander Przybylowicz, codirector of ASUA Pride Alliance, said the goal of Banned Books Week is to bring awareness to the censorship of books, comics, music and other materials. “It’s important for students to attend Banned Books Week events because as educated individuals, we need to start thinking for ourselves and stop letting governments, parents, or anyone else tell us what to read,” Przybylowicz said. Banned Books Week will also include a Banned Books Exhibit in the UA Main Library and a “Books, Comics & Rock and Roll: Censorship in the Modern Age” speaker panel, both hosted by the UA chapter of the Progressive Librarians Guild. The exhibit will display issues like why books were challenged, the most frequently challenged books and what groups led the challenges. Guest speakers at the panel will include Richard DiRusso, manager of the collection development office at the Pima County Public Library, Randy Peterson, general manager and development director at KXCI 91.3 FM radio station and Henry Barajas, promotional manager at Tucson Comic-Con and a writer for El Loco. Banned Books Week began in 1982 and was promoted by the American Library Association. For several years, the UA chapter of the Progressive Librarians Guild and the UA Libraries partnered to showcase the Banned Books Exhibit and a speaker panel. “I believe that the freedom to read content of our choosing is central to a fair and democratic society that values dialogue over fear,” Przybylowicz said.

Meeting addresses substance abuse by women By Alexandra Bortnik DAILY WILDCAT

A town hall held Thursday addressed substance abuse by young women and examined current obstacles, factors and community needs for treatment. Active since 1979, the UA’s College of Social and Behavioral Sciences Southwest Institute for Research on Women (SIROW) hosted Call to Action: A Town Hall Discussion of Adolescent Substance Use and Recovery at the Tucson Marriott University Park. Sally Stevens, executive director of Southwest Institute for Research on Women, said Tucson has a lack of treatment resources in general, but specifically for adolescent girls. “Substance-abusing adolescent girls are a hidden population,” Stevens said. “They tend to run away, live with older men, and are able to hide from the law.” Unlike most boys with a history of

them visible to receive treatment as they go through the criminal justice system. Kaleena Huggins, a graduate student studying public health, said SIROW is focusing on adolescents because the onset of mental health issues and substance abuse occurs during adolescence, and treatment is usually geared toward adults, leaving only about one-sixteenth of adolescents who actually receive the treatment they need. Bridget Ruiz, an associate research professor, said the poor economy is also a big factor as to why treatment for adolescents is so scarce. She said to further a vicious cycle, the poor economy and rising unemployment rates often lead to a higher percentage of substance abuse in families as COLIN PRENGER / DAILY WILDCAT a way of coping — when parents start Community members gathered at the Tucson Marriott University Park on Thursday abusing, children often follow as a to discuss substance abuse and preventative measures. result of the “trickle-down effect.” substance abuse, girls are less likely es.

Study shows yawning helps cool brain By Stew McClintic Daily Wildcat

CMP-admissions krt photograph by laura morton / the seattle times

Sleepyheads take note — a UA researcher may have helped discover the cause behind yawning. Omar Eldakar, a postdoctoral fellow in the UA Center for Insect Science, and Andrew Gallup, a postdoctoral research associate at Princeton University’s Department of Ecology and Evolutionary Biology, have discovered that yawning is actually a mechanism to help cool the brain. In their report, published this month in the journal Frontiers in Evolutionary Neuroscience, Gallup and Eldakar assert that the connection between yawning frequency and

outdoor temperatures is due to the air intake associated with a yawn. Air enters the mouth and circulates throughout the body via the bloodstream, which supplies the brain with oxygen. So if the temperature of the oxygen outside of the brain is cooler than the temperature of the brain itself, then the air outside will actually help cool the brain. “Our brains are like computers and have optimal operating temperatures, not too hot or not too cold,” Eldakar said. “Yawning helps cool the brain to help maintain these optimal conditions.” According to Eldakar, brain temperature fluctuates depending on the circumstances. Eldakar said that in general, the brain is much

Singing Starbucks employee fired over YouTube video Mcclatchy tribune

CHOWCHILLA, Calif. — YouTube’s latest rising viral star just lost his job. Christopher Cristwell, 25, is making national headlines after he posted a video of himself on YouTube singing about his job at the Chowchilla Starbucks. In the video, he sings the song while playing guitar and wearing nothing but a green apron and his underwear: “It’s just a cup of coffee / Give me a break / I shouldn’t have to put up with this, making minimum wage.” Well, now he won’t have to. He was fired Tuesday. The video was picked up by a popular Starbucks blog last week, which quickly caught the attention of the corporate honchos. After several meetings with managers, he was sent packing. “They were really cool about it. The regional manager complimented me on my creative ability — not on that specific song — and then asked me why I did it. They were really trying to find out about my intent behind the videos.” The intent, he says, was strictly satire. He said he never actually did any of the shortcuts he sings about, such as filling a Vanilla Bean Frappuccino with whipped cream because most customers can’t tell the difference. “I’m not trying to say it’s a healthy song, but it’s definitely satire,” he said. A few of the lyrics are scatological and possibly profane, but if the song were a movie, it would probably get a PG rating. Starbucks released a statement through company spokesman Alan Hilowitz on Wednesday afternoon that said: “While Christopher was expressing his own views in the video, the disparaging remarks about our customers and company are unacceptable and out of line with our commitment to our customers and partners (employees).”

Christopher Cristwell, 25, pictured outside his former workplace on Wednesday made national headlines after he posted a video of himself on YouTube singing about his job at the Starbucks in Chowchilla, Calif.

Cristwell got the idea for the song after one particularly stressful shift. He was searching YouTube for rants about Starbucks and found plenty of customer complaints — but none by employees. He uploaded the video in July with the hopes of causing a few laughs. “I understand some people could get offended by some of the lyrics, and I don’t want people to think they won’t get quality beverages from Starbucks,” he said. “But there are moments when you’re working for Starbucks that it’s so stressful; if you mess one drink up, it can back everything else up.” He hopes the video becomes a “teachable moment” for the company. “Starbucks should probably realize this is a mentality for many of their employees,” he said. At first the video got a few hundred views a day. Then a few thousand. It started going viral after it was posted to the front page of, a popular blog about the coffee chain. By Wednesday, it had more than 40,000

views and was featured on national news websites, including the Boston Herald and CNBC. Cristwell, who was born in Keflavík, Iceland, but has lived in Chowchilla since he was a toddler, is studying to become an emergency medical technician — but he says he wouldn’t mind if his life took another direction because of the video: “I really enjoy singing and songwriting. If it turns into something, that would be a dream job for me. I’ll just take it as it goes, I’ll roll with it.” But his more immediate interest is finding a new job. He was passing out résumés Wednesday afternoon. “I have bills to pay and I hope the video doesn’t affect my ability to get hired. It’s just a comedy song. I really am a good employee.” For someone who just got fired from the job he’s held for five years, Cristwell comes off as confident, cool and collected — qualities that will no doubt ease his search for a new daily grind.

warmer during the time just before going to sleep and just after waking up. Eldakar and Gallup hypothesized that this phenomenon has something to do with the relationship between the outside air temperature and the temperature of the brain. Eldakar and Gallup’s study also found that yawning seems to happen more often in the winter than the summer. To draw their conclusions, Eldakar and Gallup showed pictures of people yawning to 160 participants in Tucson, half in June 2010 and half in February 2011, and documented how frequently the subjects yawned in response during the summer compared to during the winter. When it was cooler outside, 45

said he had not been informed of the request ahead of time, and was under the impression that ASU would run nursing programs out of Phoenix. The UA and ASU entered into an agreement to operate the biomedical campus jointly in 2004, but that agreement was dissolved in 2010, leaving the UA in charge of the dayto-day operation of the campus. UA President Eugene Sander said the request was not an attempt to deceive Crow or any other board member, but rather reflected the need to continue development of specialized programs. He said this is particularly true when considering the Arizona Cancer Center, the only center of its kind in the state. “This is not meant to step on any toes,” Sander said. Regent Anne Mariucci said Crow’s unfamiliarity with the provision until it was brought up at the meeting was proof that the Council of Presidents, a group made up of Arizona’s three university presidents in addition to regents President Tom Anderes, was not functioning as it should. “Even though it (the request) is not financially significant, it’s strategically significant,” she said. The university funding requests also included three studies mandated by the Arizona Legislature: an examination of the funding disparity between the three universities, work to develop a more studentcentered financial aid system and a shift toward a performance-based funding model. Regent Dennis DeConcini raised issue with the discussion of funding disparity. He said the disparity, which mainly focused on raising ASU’s and Northern Arizona University’s perstudent funding to a level equitable with the UA’s, was not a recent circumstance. Specifically, he cited the UA’s status as Arizona’s sole land-grant university, and its biggest research institution, as reasons why a funding gap may be justifiable. “Sometimes the first child gets to go to the best university because they’re first,” DeConcini said. “If this is approved, the UA is going to have less money and, in my judgment, it’s a mistake.”

percent of subjects yawned, but in the summer, only 24 percent of participants were able to yawn. The variance in yawning frequency from season to season is likely because warmer temperatures cannot provide relief for overheated brains. “It is the temperature of the ambient air that gives a yawn its utility, so if it is too hot outside, yawning can actually increase brain temperature and therefore be counterproductive,” Eldakar said. The study is the first involving humans to show that the season has an impact on yawning frequency and that people are less likely to yawn when the outdoor heat exceeds body temperature.

The regents approved the proposed funding disparity plan, which spreads out the process over five years. To equalize funding, ASU will receive a total of $59.9 million at a rate of around $12 million a year, while NAU will receive $16.5 million at around $3.3 million a year. DeConcini was the only dissenting vote on the item. The regents briefly touched on the ongoing shift from an enrollmentbased model to a performance-based one. Anderes said the new system, which is based on a series of 32 metrics designed to test university proficiency and performance in key areas, will not be in place until next year. TheUA’sproposedcapitalimprovement plan was also approved unanimously. The plan includes more than $255 million worth of projects, $145 million of which would go to the construction of a new engineering research building and new bioscience research labs.

Byrne receives extension The board of regents unanimously approved a contract extension for Athletics Director Greg Byrne. Under the new provisions of the extension, Byrne will receive an approximate 33 percent pay hike, from $330,000 to $440,000, though his compensation for “peripheral duties,” public appearances, speaking engagements and the like, will remain unchanged at $60,000 per year. Additionally, Byrne will receive an annual incentive of $100,000, beginning Sept. 30 of next year, and running throughout his contract, providing him with a potential $500,000 in bonus pay if he serves out the life of his contract. Byrne is only eligible to receive this bonus money if he completes his entire contract, and will forfeit it if he is terminated or voluntarily leaves his position. His contract was also extended by 17 months and now runs to Sept. 29, 2016. UA President Eugene Sander praised Byrne, calling him the “prototypical up-and-coming athletic director.” Though Byrne was not present at the meeting, Regent Ernest Calderon read a letter in which Byrne said he was excited to continue being a part of the “Wildcat family.”

Flamenco hits stride By Jazmine Woodberry Daily Wildcat

For the third year, the Tucson Spanish and Flamenco Festival will bring Spanish flair to downtown Tucson. The Tucson Spanish and Flamenco Festival represents a collaboration between Casa Vicente Restaurant and Club España de Tucson, with the help of Flamenco del Pueblo Viejo and sponsor Tucson Children’s Museum. Held at Casa Vicente Restaurant, 375 S. Stone Ave., the indoor and outdoor festival is a view of modern flamenco that’s handled “the same way the Spainards do it,” according to Mele Martinez, co-founder and organizer of the festival. “Most people, they have a very old-school idea of what flamenco is, something with castanets and all that,” Martinez said. “It’s extremely exciting to watch and of course here (at Casa Vicente) they get the whole setting and we try to make it as authentic to what it’s like in Spain.” The festival runs multiple nights and is split into three major parts: cante, baile and toque – or song, dance and play (guitar) in English. Martinez said a common misconception is that flamenco is

In addition to performances by professional artists, tonight through Sunday night will feature Sevillanas and rumba social dances where attendees can become part of the act, getting up on stage to show off their own “flamenco aire.” When the event started, it had only three or four participants, but this year it will host more than 10, Martinez said. This includes world-

renowned artist Jose Luis Rodriguez, a prominent figure in flamenco born in Huelva, Spain, and Chris Burton Jacome, local recording artist and director of the touring group the CBJ Flamenco Ensemble. Jacome will debut his new musical project, “Flaméxico,” during the festival. As professional artists take the main stage, guests will be able to enjoy a selection of foods from Casa Vicente. Outdoor vendors will sell Spanish tapas, from $5 to $15, and a full dining menu will be available inside the restaurant, with prices ranging from $10 to $35. Traditional beverages including sangria and mojitos will also be served. Guests can also enjoy a flamenco fashion show or workshops and panels by Flamenco del Pueblo Viejo, which offers classes directed by Mele and her husband Jason Martinez, and Club España de Tucson, a non-profit organization working to preserve the art and culture of Spain in the Southwest. But for Martinez, it’s all about sharing her love of flamenco with Tucson with events like the festival. “We’re planning on coming out with a big bang,” she said.

Being green isn’t always easy, but it sure is sweet By Rebecca Rillos Daily Wildcat

On a hot September evening, ragtime tunes announce the arrival of the ice cream truck as the Model T slows to a stop on Fourth Avenue. But the year isn’t 1920 and this old-fashioned truck boasts several 21st-century upgrades. The modernized 1927 Ford Model T is the main delivery method for Isabella’s Ice Cream, a local company owned by Dominic and Kristel Johnson. The truck is all-electric and uses a freezer powered by thin-film solar panels on the roof to keep the ice cream cold during deliveries. The idea to enter the ice cream business, Dominic Johnson said, came to him a few years ago when he heard an ice cream truck drive down the street of his Rancho Sahuarita home. “I told my wife, ‘That would be a great business if you could build one that isn’t creepy,’” Johnson said. The idea was to create a truck that was “more open” than those of standard ice cream vendors. Johnson sought the parts from various sellers in Tucson and got to work on creating a Model T. “What I bought didn’t look like a car at all. I convinced my wife to let me buy this thing and I didn’t even let her look at it until I kind of arranged it to sort of look like a car,” he said. In August 2010, Isabella’s Ice Cream was born. The company features organic ice cream flavors from traditional chocolate to original lemon basil sorbet. Dominic manages the company while Kristel takes care of event planning. On some weekends, the whole family goes out with the truck to sell on the streets. An interesting aspect of the truck, Johnson said, is the wood panel siding. The siding, a traditional wood color on the outside and Wildcat blue on the inside, is actually old flooring from McKale Center. The Johnsons, both UA alumni, got the planks from a neighbor who worked in the flooring industry.

Isabella’s Ice Cream sets up outside of Food Conspiracy Co-Op on Fourth Avenue on Sept. 2. The company sells organic ice cream out of a renovated Model T.

“The flooring is cool and everybody gets a kick out of it,” Johnson said. The green and organic factors of the business were a bit of an afterthought, Johnson said, but now their small, unique family business has turned into a popular brand. The family sells Isabella’s Ice Cream at Rincon Market and Maynards Market and Kitchen. “From a typical ice cream truck, you’re getting garbage that you wouldn’t want to feed your kids, so the whole idea is that we’re doing it as responsibly as possible, environmentally,” Johnson said. “I think people are just buying the whole concept of the electric truck and a nice product.” Gary Mackender, a first-time customer of Isabella’s Ice Cream, said he had never heard of the company before seeing the truck on Fourth Avenue. “I love the truck,” Mackender said. “I really love the free samples.” Isabella Johnson, The Johnsons’ oldest daughter and the namesake of their company, said she wants to drive the truck when she gets older.

“I’ve already decided that’s how they (the kids) are going to buy their cars when they get older: by driving the ice cream trucks,” Dominic Johnson said.

The family debuted its second ice cream truck at a Salpointe Catholic High School football game on Sept. 16. Dominic Johnson said he and Kristel Johnson hope to add oldfashioned sodas to their menu, a side project they promised to name after their second daughter. They are also in the process of opening their own kitchen near downtown, Dominic Johnson said, where they can continue the business on a larger scale and experiment with more original flavors. “Once we get set up and have larger batch freezers, we’ll start doing a lot more fun stuff,” Dominic Johnson said.


That’s amore! Modern-day romancin’ A

s a guy, unless you’re Casanova or rocking a six-pack, asking women out is probably one of the harder things to do in life. Not to say it’s impossible, but there are so many rules that thinking about how to do it is almost as much of an effort as the act itself. One rule I’m sure you’ve heard of is that you should ask her in person or at least over the phone. I’m here to say that just isn’t true. Sure, if you see her often or are close enough that a phone call wouldn’t seem weird, then asking her out should be as personal as possible. Not all situations are like that, though. For example, what do you do about that cute, nice girl you met at the party last

ASA must increase recruitment Storm Byrd Daily Wildcat


he Arizona Students’ Association has officially kicked off its year. If you didn’t know, don’t worry — not too many other people noticed either. At its annual kickoff event, which is used largely as a recruitment event for the upcoming year, a reported 50 students showed up. Such a low total is disheartening when you consider all the tasks that ASA needs to accomplish. ASA is a self-described public university student-funded organization that “works to make sure that higher education in Arizona is affordable and accessible by advocating to elected officials and running issue campaigns to engage students.” But the actual follow-through and engaging of students are always difficult tasks. As a former ASA staff member myself, I know firsthand that sometimes students are just too disengaged and consumed with their own academic and personal lives to care. While this viewpoint is incredibly backwards, it still exists. Students struggle with realizing that their academic lives are directly impacted by the actions of state officials and outside entities like textbook publishing companies. ASA is supposed to be there to encourage students to recognize this reality and to take responsibility for it. It seems so very obvious but if you don’t stand up for yourself, nobody else will. Nobody is going to lobby for students if they don’t lobby for themselves. This is the point where ASA is supposed to come in. ASA is supposed to serve as the means through which students can lobby for themselves. Unfortunately though, ASA continues to struggle with getting students actively involved and having a deep influence on the university campus. The low turnout at the kickoff event is evidence of that. Year in and year out, ASA pushes the same topics and perhaps it’s hindering their ability to recruit. Voter registration and textbooks are consistently at the forefront. Come springtime, there’s Lobby Day, which is very exciting for interns as they get to interact face to face with elected officials. But all in all, it’s the same thing year after year with limited spikes in progress. Of course voter registration is important every election year, but where’s the progress in registration from year to year? Textbook prices are high, of course, but where’s the movement toward actually changing the way textbooks are handled? Tuition is going up, we all know that, but when will we see some solution to that other than getting upset about it? Again, the blame doesn’t rest wholly with ASA. There’s only so much you can do with limited interest from students. However, if ASA wants to continue its success and make greater steps than ever before, they’ve got to step up their recruitment efforts. There’s only so much interest to be generated from a small gathering in Old Main where the predominant expression of ideas is putting colored markers to butcher paper. The problem isn’t that ASA doesn’t work hard; it’s that it doesn’t have the man power to really get the gears turning. Here’s hoping ASA can recruit more aggressively to further its quest to represent the interests of students. — Storm Byrd is the Perspectives editor. He can be reached at

MAILBAG Infidelity isn’t the end

In response to “Learn from Jackie-O’s mistake” (Sept. 21): Thank you for your column drawing attention to the crisis that is infidelity. You are right that relationships are built on trust and in your underlying assertion that infidelity creates a deep rift in the relationship. However, I believe your assumption that all couples should call it quits after infidelity is naive and judgmental. I have seen many, many couples rebuild after infidelity. It is not impossible to rebuild trust; in fact many of these couples have an even stronger relationship after infidelity because in their crisis they are finally willing to learn how to have a truly transparent and intimate relationship. It is not an easy road, but it is so worth it to learn to grow, forgive, become accountable and become truly transparent and fully known by your spouse. The appropriate help may not have been available for Jackie and JFK, but it is now. Please do not doom all couples wracked by infidelity to divorce and more heartbreak. There really is so much hope to rebuild if the couple is willing to look at themselves honestly. — Erin Barry

Pulse of the Pac While we’ve been discussing ignorance about the dangers of prescription drugs, living with infidelity and the legality of drug testing welfare recipients and college students, the rest of the Pac-12 has been delivering opinions on sexual encounters in an automobile, the development of internet slang in the real world and overwhelming stress. Take a look at what the Pac-12 has to say:

California The Daily Californian “Car sex, by definition, is already sexy. Yes, the space is a lot tighter, but there seem to be many delightful advantages to having sex in a motor vehicle. I see the headrests not so much as hindrances but more as leverages … Inside the microcosm of a car, shortcomings and mistakes are overlooked. Awkward silences are replaced by the slapping of moist skin against steamy windows and hot groans from a new bruise. You go in expecting to exit with a battle wound or two, so you usually play more rough than usual. There are fewer pressures to strip entirely naked — although doing so is always welcomed. Because of the limited space, understated positions are played out thoroughly. There is always that possibility of getting caught or seen, and this risk intensifies how much you want the other person at that very moment. The entire affair, from making out to finishing, is sexy, dangerous and daring.”

Keep it simple, Facebook, we can’t keep up with all the changes Facebook has debuted yet another update and there are more to come. Facebook will soon introduce what it calls a “timeline.” This timeline will run on every person’s profile and depict not only their history on the social networking site, but also their most important photos and text prior to joining Facebook (if they so choose). CEO Mark Zuckerberg introduced the idea at Facebook’s f8 conference in front of an estimated 2,000 attendees. Pardon the obvious question, but how many times is Facebook going to change and re-invent itself? It’s bad enough that on a relatively regular basis a user has to sit down and relearn the layout, now we have to take on and monitor another aspect of our profile? It’s still not entirely clear exactly how things will end up on a timeline. According to Zuckerberg’s presentation, the timeline will include every-

thing from what pictures we posted at a certain time to our statuses and what we we’re watching and listening to. It’s essentially a whole new way of easily tracking what you did with Facebook, without endlessly scrolling to the bottom of your profile page. But again, how do these things get there? Is our media going to be placed or ranked based on its popularity with our friends? Or will we be able to choose what exactly was memorable? Let’s be honest. There are some pictures or statuses on Facebook that are funny, but not exactly indicative of who we were entirely at one time in our life. Who wants to remember and look fondly back on the fact that they posted the “crank that soulja boy” song four times in 2007? Is mocking a silly song and fad of the time really what defined us? Or what about that sad, sappy status you wrote on a lonely weekend

night back in freshman year, that about 10 of your friends commented on? Yeah, you probably shouldn’t have wrote it, but by the time you figured that out, it was already long out of your memory and you had moved on. Guess what? Now we all get to reminisce on the whiney punk you once were. While it’s always important to stay on the cutting edge and keep up with the times, perhaps Facebook is going overboard. With constant software updates and additions, even the tech savvy generation is struggling to keep up. Slow down “FB,” we like you just the way you are.

Police Beat

friend 2 friend

By Rebecca Rillos Daily Wildcat

Under the bed nightmare A University of Arizona Police Department officer was on patrol on Saturday around 1 a.m. when another officer reported she had seen a man near Arizona-Sonora Residence Hall who had previously been banned from the location. The officer on patrol spoke to a resident assistant, who said the man was known to hang out in one of the resident’s rooms. The officer went up to the room and one of the residents permitted him to enter. The officer asked if the man was hiding in the room, and the man directed his gaze to the bed. The officer noticed a man under the bed behind a laundry basket. He said he knew he was not supposed to be there. The officer handcuffed and escorted him from the building. The man’s lip and right eye were swollen, but he refused medical attention. He said some men he didn’t know beat him up and he ran into the dorm to hide. He also said he had been drinking a little. The officer conducted a search and found two white pills in his pocket. The officer read him his rights and drove him to Pima County Jail. On the way, the man said he was 17, so the officer took him to Pima County Juvenile Detention Center. The staff rejected the man because he had possibly taken an unknown pill and needed to be medically evaluated. The officer then took the man to Kino Community Hospital.. The man shouted obscenities when a nurse tried to take his blood pressure and said, “Don’t touch me, I’m not submitting to anything without my lawyer.” The officer and hospital staff tried to explain the treatment was separate from the arrest, but the man kept shouting and hospital security had to hold him down while nurses took his vitals and blood sample. The man was cleared the next morning and another officer transported him to Pima County Juvenile Detention Center for trespassing, minor in possession and disorderly conduct.

Golf cart obscenities


UAPD officers were on patrol at 1 a.m. on Saturday when they witnessed a golf cart with seven people inside wait for two women to pass in the crosswalk near Arizona-Sonora. One of the men shouted “Slut!” at the women as they passed. The officers stopped the golf cart and the people inside admitted to drinking at an off-campus pool party. All of them submitted to preliminary breath tests and four of them showed presence of alcohol in their systems. The four students were cited and released for minor in possession of alcohol in body.

A UAPD officer met with a member of the Delta Delta Delta sorority at 7:30 p.m. on Saturday in response to a report of attempted larceny. The woman told the officer she had walked into the kitchen area and saw two men trying to steal an oversized spoon and fork that belonged to the house. She told them to get out and they ran out. When the woman entered the “date room” a few minutes later, she saw a man watching television alone. He said he was with a member of the sorority but she wasn’t there at the moment. The woman yelled at him to get out and continued until a UAPD officer walked up and placed the man in handcuffs. Another woman came downstairs and told officers she was with the man they handcuffed. She said she was getting ready upstairs and told him to watch TV so he wouldn’t be bored. The man said he saw three other men run out of the house and gave descriptions of them. The sorority members said they did not wish to press charges if the men were found, but only wished to inform them they were not permitted inside.

DOWN THE DUCKS The Wildcats must stop one of the nation’s most prolific offenses to conquer Oregon. How do they expect to do it? By Alex Williams DAILY WILDCAT



t’s been said that bad things come in threes. For the Arizona football team, that’s true in the form of three top-10 opponents in a row, all of which boast a top-10 scoring offense. This week, it’s No. 10 Oregon and its fastpaced option attack rolling into Tucson for a 7:15 p.m. kickoff that will be televised on ESPN2. But for an Arizona (1-2, 0-1 Pac-12) defense that’s given up 37 points in each of its last two games, it’s back to the basics. “It’s assignment football,” defensive coordinator Tim Kish said. “We’ve got to be smart about that.” Oregon (2-1, 0-0) has used its now-famous offensive attack to rush for 261 yards per game, ranking the Ducks eighth nationally in rushing yards. Oregon likes to attack defenses by motioning to and from different formations, trying to create mismatches. “It’s very complicated, but you have to be very disciplined and understand your

responsibilities,” head coach Mike Stoops said. linebackers and safeties creep up to the line to “It gets you moving around. You’ve got to be … stop the run, it opens up room for deep passes. Because of the variety of ways that Oregon focused to see what they’re trying to do.” So while the Ducks are able to showcase a can attack the defense on any given play, UA Heisman Trophy contender in running back linebacker Paul Vassallo said defenses feel a LaMichael James and other elite athletes at each little more pressure against the Ducks than other opponents. of the offensive skill posi“It makes you know that tions, stopping the Ducks you’re going to have to be usually doesn’t come down “You’ve got to be gapnear perfect,” Vassallo said. to physical ability. sound, you’ve got to “You’re going to have to “It’s very mental,” safety pursue the ball inside take good angles all game.

You’ve got to be gapOregon’s rush offense is sound, you’ve got to pursue the ball inside out. That’s what we plan on a different brand of football than the smashmouth attack Stanford used to rush for 242 in a doing on Saturday.” Many of Oregon’s offensive plays have some 37-10 victory a week ago. Following that game, sort of read on the defensive line. If the ends Wildcat coaches lamented defensive miscues are overly aggressive, it opens up running lanes like blown coverages and missed assignments. But different isn’t always a good thing. The outside for quarterback Darron Thomas. If

Ducks racked up 389 yards on the ground in last year’s 48-29 win against Arizona. Oregon’s offense thrives on big plays — five players have at least one carry of longer than 20 yards, and five receivers have a catch of longer than 30 yards. So while Kish knows that mistakes will happen, it’s eliminating the huge ones that has been a focus in practice. “We didn’t execute fully in that last game and it cost us some big plays,” Kish said. “Those are the things that are probably most disappointing. Those guys will make some little mistakes, but if they’re hustling and flying around and doing the right things, that makes up for some of those.” But for Golden, previous games against Oregon are in the past, and he’s relishing another opportunity to take down a top-10 team in front of Arizona’s home fans. “I hope the environment will be great this week,” Golden said. “It’s a big challenge and we want to go out there and get it done.”

Soccer takes on nation’s No. 1 squad Following first shut-out, Wildcats look for first win of season against Stanford By Zack Rosenblatt DAILY WILDCAT


Senior goalkeeper Ashley Jett steps out of the box on Friday in a 3-0 loss to Pacific in Tucson. The Wildcats face the No. 1 Stanford Cardinal tomorrow night at 7.

The winless and unranked Arizona soccer team will travel to Palo Alto, Calif., to face the undefeated and No. 1-ranked Stanford Cardinal tomorrow night at 7. Some early struggles were to be expected heading into the season, considering how young the team is, but to be 0-7-1 heading into Pac-12 play is not where it expected to sit. The Wildcats will try their hand at their first victory against a supremely talented Stanford Cardinal squad. “You know, we are focused on getting our first win,” head coach Lisa Oyen said. “We have all the individual pieces. Throughout the course of the season we have had great games. We have done enough to put ourselves in situations to finish off games, it’s just staying committed and playing an entire 90 minutes.” This past weekend, the Wildcats put on

Volleyball takes on Huskies, Cougars Rubio’s squad looks to continue winning against tough No. 4 Washington By Kelly Hultgren DAILY WILDCAT

There will be no room for errors tonight when the Arizona volleyball team takes on the No. 4 Washington Huskies in McKale Center at 7. “The one thing I like about Washington is that every year I know exactly what I’m going to get from Washington,” head coach Dave Rubio said. “They pride themselves in being really straightforward, and they’re going to execute at a higher level more consistently than you are. That’s worked very well for them in the past, and they’re very good again this year.” The Huskies come with more seniority than the Wildcats, especially in their setting. Huskies setter Evan Sanders is a close

friend of the Wildcats’ Courtney Karst. Before college, they played on the same club team, Karst said. Even though Karst says the two haven’t exchanged words about tonight’s match, she knows defeating Sanders’ team isn’t an easy feat. “Washington has always been tough, and we’ve only beat them once, last season, in the last, I don’t know how many years,” Karst said. “It will be good to play against a really good opponent and prove ourselves.” Karst is also looking forward to the friendly rivalry. “I know when we even played together, we were extremely competitive,” Karst said of Sanders. “We’d always exchange some words back and forth, so it should be really fun.” Another interesting matchup will be between Washington’s freshman outside hitter Krista Vansant and Arizona’s freshman outside hitter Madison Kingdon. Vansant was the Gatorade 2010-11 National Volleyball Player of the Year in high school. “Vansant’s taller, she’s about 6-2,” Rubio

said. “But both (Vansant and Kingdon) are very similar types of players, and I think when (head coach) Jim (McLaughlin) recruited Krista, he had the same vision of the role she would play as I have for Madi — all six rotations, passing in every rotation, and the primary go to player on the left.” The Wildcats will follow up the Washington game by facing Washington State on Sunday at 1 p.m. “They have some real legit players,” Rubio said. Rubio said the team’s standout player is its only senior, outside hitter Meagan Ganzer. “She could start for anybody in the conference,” Rubio said on Ganzer. After a coaching change last year, the team is currently in a transitional state. “They’re in a rebuilding phase, but they can give you problems,” Rubio said. “They’re good and talented enough to beat you. They’re not at the same level as Washington, but I still think we have to be in a position to control our side of the net to be successful.”

what may have been their best performance of the season in a 0-0 tie with Texas Tech. “We got a tie and our first shutout,” Oyen said. “Not losing a game that we (thought) we (had) a pretty good handle on was a positive step for us. It’s a small step forward. We want to take a bigger one but we’re still pretty satisfied with the result. But, we still need to do more.” If the team wants to defeat the heavilyfavored Cardina, it certainly will have to do more. The last three times the Wildcats have faced Stanford, they lost by a combined score of 10-1. If they are able to build on the positivity stemming from their performance on Sunday night, then maybe the Wildcats will be able to give Stanford a run for its money. As freshman Emily Lai says, it’s all about their mindset. “Our results don’t really show exactly how our season has been going so far,” Lai said. “We have to go out with the mindset that we’re going to kill the other team and that we’ll do anything it takes to get the ball in the back of the net. “We’re so much hungrier than we would be because we haven’t been winning games.”

HOOPS TO PLAY ON AIRCRAFT CARRIER Arizona basketball will face the UConn Huskies in the second annual Carrier Classic,’s Jeff Goodman reported Thursday. The game, which will be played outdoors on an aircraft carrier, is a rematch of the 2011 Elite Eight game that UConn won 65-63. The contest is tentatively scheduled for Nov. 9, 2012, Goodman reported. The Wildcats were on the shortlist to play UConn, along with Kansas, Texas, Florida and Illinois. Goodman wrote that seating for about 7,000 fans, most of which will be active military personnel, will surround the court. This year’s inaugural Carrier Classic pits top-ranked North Carolina against Michigan State, and will be played on the USS Carl Vinson in San Diego on Veteran’s Day. — Alex Williams

Oregon’s offense is best at distracting the defense from where the ball actually is. Through different motions, fakes and pitches, it does its best to get people moving one direction, then running counters right past them. If the Arizona defense — especially the linebackers — can keep its eyes on the ball it can avoid giving up the huge chunks of yardage that Oregon’s offense thrives on.


With inexperienced defensive ends and a defense that prides itself on being aggressive and getting to the ball, the Wildcats run the risk of being overaggressive against Oregon’s spread-option attack. Because of the misdirection and read plays that key off of defensive linemen, one step too far in any direction can lead to a touchdown. But it will likely be difficult for a defense that’s looking to make a play after getting torched the past two weeks to stay within itself.


Arizona’s defense has a history of slowing down Oregon’s offense at the start of a game. Last year in Eugene, Ore., Arizona actually led 19-14 at the half before giving up 20 points in the third quarter. And as Arizona found out, getting field goals instead of touchdowns doesn’t happen against Oregon. If the defense is able to slow down Oregon — or even if it can’t — the offense has to put points on the board early because of the Ducks’ history as a secondhalf team.


Arizona’s red zone offense needs a spark With yards aplenty, UA must finish drives to beat Ducks By Mike Schmitz DAILY WILDCAT

Remember when scoring was a non-issue for Arizona? Remember when the Wildcats featured one of the most feared offenses in the Pacific 10 Conference? A minimum of 30 points and 450 yards was the norm and head coach Mike Stoops would have never said “we need to score more points” after a game as he did last week after the UA’s loss to Stanford. But those days are over. The electric offensive attack that characterized the 2010 Wildcats has vanished. The once-lethal offense that gave Arizona a puncher’s chance against top teams is on vacation, though the Wildcats will need it more than ever against offensive juggernaut Oregon at Arizona Stadium tomorrow night at 7:15. “We’re going to have to score more than 10 or 14 points and we need our offense to get the ball in the end zone and make kicks against JANICE BIANCAVILLA / DAILY WILDCAT a team like this,” Stoops said. Arizona running back Keola Antolin takes a carry in Arizona’s 37-10 loss to the But unless Arizona finds a runStanford Cardinal on Saturday. Antolin is a key in UA’s red zone offense stepping up. ning game and a kicking game and can score touchdowns inside the

20 against the Ducks, it’s not looking good. Arizona’s offense is stagnant, one-dimensional and MIA in the red zone. Despite turning the ball over only once all season and averaging 364 passing yards per game, the Wildcats can’t score like they used to. They’ve been held scoreless in five of their last eight quarters played, and as a result have been outscored by a combined 50 points. While the lack of points seems out of character, Arizona’s inability to score dates back to the end of last season. Arizona was white-hot out of the gate in 2010, topping 40 points three times in its first seven games and averaging 32.6 points per game over its first eight games, seven of which were wins. Then the wheels came off. Arizona hasn’t beaten an FBS opponent since defeating UCLA on October 30, 2010, and its lack of offense has been a big reason why. During that losing streak that spans almost 11 months, Arizona’s averaged an unimpressive 21.4 points per game. The Wildcats finished third in the Pac-10 in total yards last year and clearly know how to move the football, but the struggles lie inside the 20. “We have a very good offense but it just comes down to getting in the end zone and finishing drives,” said

center Kyle Quinn. “Inside the 20 is where games are won.” With one of the worst red zone offenses in the conference, it’s no surprise Arizona holds the longest losing streak to Division I teams in the Pac-12. The Wildcats finished second-tolast in the Pac-10 in red zone offense last season, scoring only 72 percent of the time. They tied for the most red-zone interceptions and fumbles in 2010, while missing three field goals inside the 20. Those red zone woes have carried over to this season as the Wildcats once again rank second-to-last in red zone offense, converting only 70 percent of their chances. While the missed field goals are a big part of that, Arizona needs touchdowns, especially against a high-powered offense like Oregon. Those touchdowns come from an established running attack, which Arizona is still missing. “When you get down in the end zone the field gets shorter so defensive backs don’t have to cover as much space, so having a consistent running game will force teams to honor the run a little bit more and that will set up the passes,” Quinn said. That inability to run the ball and score touchdowns in enemy terri-



Cross-country heads to Minn., tennis to Texas XC gets first competitive test of season, M-tennis travels to Waco By Kyle Johnson DAILY WILDCAT

The Arizona Wildcats No. 10 ranked women’s cross-country team and unranked men’s team travel north to compete in the Roy Griak Invitational on Saturday in St. Paul, Minn. After winning handily against a weak field at the Dave Murray Invitational the previous weekend, the Minnesota-hosted event should

provide the first true test for the UA as well as give an early look at what each roster has to offer. The competition will be stiff in St. Paul, as the women go up against No. 8 Iowa State, No. 11 Washington, No. 18 Penn State, No. 21 NC State, No. 23 BYU, and 20 other universities around the country. The men will compete against No. 10 Portland, No. 11 N.C. State, No. 24 Minnesota and 22 other schools. For the women, sophomore Elvin Kibet and nine Wildcat teammates will run in St. Paul on Saturday. Freshman Lawi Lalang and six others will represent the Arizona men.

The race will be held at Minnesota’s Les Bolstad Golf Course. The men begin their 8,000-meter race at 12:20 p.m. and the women’s 6,000-meter race will follow at 1:10 p.m.

Men’s tennis sends two to Baylor Invite Sophomore Mario Urquidi and freshman Andre Vidaller travel to Waco, Texas, this weekend, representing the Arizona men’s tennis team at the 11th annual Baylor-HEB Invitational. The tournament is the second of

the season for the Wildcats and will be much more competitive than the Aggie Invitational they attended on Sept. 9. The Baylor-HEB Invitational features four players ranked in the top50 of the ITA preseason singles rankings, yet only No. 17 ranked Costin Paval, a junior from Oklahoma, is inside the ITA Top 40. The tournament also includes three players ranked in the ITA top-10 freshmen. The No. 23 ranked doubles team from Baylor will also be at the invitational. Since Vidaller only played during the team season last spring, this

will be his first individual event as a Wildcat. Urquidi is coming off a third-place finish at the Aggie Invitational, the highest finish of any UA player at that event this season. The Baylor-HEB Invitational will be a real test for the young Wildcats, yet considering there is only one upperclassman on the roster, this is only the start of a difficult, yet potentially rewarding, fall season for Arizona. Play starts today at Baylor’s Hurd Tennis Center and continues through Sunday.

Alice was beginning to get very tired of sitting by her sister on the bank, and of having nothing to do: once or twice she had peeped into the book her sister was reading, but it had no pictures or conversations in it, `and what is the use of a book,' thought Alice `without pictures or conversation?' So she was considering in her own mind (as well as she could, for the hot day made her feel very sleepy and stupid), whether the pleasure of making a daisy-chain would 214 N. 4th Ave be worth the trouble of getting up and picking the daisies, Tucson, AZ 85705 when suddenly a White Rabbit with pink eyes ran close by (520) 326-6661 her.

tory doomed the Wildcats in Eugene, Ore., last season. Arizona came out firing and scored two quick touchdowns before the Ducks tied things up at 14 early in the second quarter. The Wildcats engineered a solid drive from their own 19-yard line to the Oregon 28, but after two consecutive incompletions, Nick Foles threw an interception at the Ducks’ 10-yard line — a

missed opportunity. On the last drive of the half, Arizona drove all the way from its own 8-yard line to Oregon’s 4-yard line, but a negative run by running back Nic Grigsby followed by a sack and a Foles incompletion forced the Wildcats to settle for a field goal — another missed opportunity. Arizona should have scored 10 points from those two drives, but instead it ended up with only three. With Oregon up by eight late in the third, the Wildcats again drove down into


Ducks territory, this time to the 24. But a three-andout left Arizona with a field goal and from that point on, Oregon took control and went on to win 48-29. The Wildcats can’t play that rerun this time around if they want to compete with Darron Thomas, LaMichael James and company. If they can couple Foles’ stellar play with a few red zone touchdowns, they can score with the Ducks. Without that once-electric offense, Arizona stands no chance.

Los Angeles Dodgers pitcher Hiroki Kuroda makes a play on Thursday at Dodgers Stadium in Los Angeles.

Stow’s words brighten season at Dodger Stadium Mcclatchy tribune

LOS ANGELES — Tommy Lasorda was holding court in the dugout. Nancy Bea Hefley was waxing melodic by the camera well. Don Mattingly was talking ball by the batting cage. But before the final major league baseball game at Dodger Stadium this season, only one voice mattered. “Did you hear?” somebody said. “Bryan Stow talked.” And so, one of the most awful summers in the history of Chavez Ravine ended Thursday with the empty seats and broken promises dusted in hope. Stow, the Santa Clara paramedic who was beaten into a coma in the parking lot here after an opening day victory over the San Francisco Giants, spoke this week for the first time since then. It was recorded on his family’s blog, which noted that Stow, who suffered severe brain injuries, recited his full name and the name of his children. He reportedly told his sister that he loved her, and said he wanted to see more of his kids. It was astonishing, aweinspiring and perhaps even appropriate news, considering the Los Angeles Dodgers were ending their home schedule against the same Giants. After all, in 82 home games, the Dodgers went to hell and halfway back. They began the season with quiet apprehension blanketing a bankrupt clubhouse and angry fan base. They ended it with thousands singing “Happy Birthday” to a wonderfully uniformed and barking honorary coach named Lasorda. They began the season with armed guards roaming the stands. They ended it with an arm that will win a Cy Young

Award, and how fast is Clayton Kershaw becoming Hollywood’s next big thing? Dressed in a sweat shirt and shaggy beard stubble Thursday, he was drawn out of the dugout by roaring fans even though he didn’t even pitch. Make no mistake, this may have been the worst year in Dodgers history, and until someone can pry Frank McCourt’s fingers off the wheel, the fans will continue to disappear while the team continues to flounder. But the home schedule ended Thursday with the locals happy to pretend everything was OK while raining love upon a team that played that way, the Dodgers finishing with a winning record at home and a chance the finish the season above .500 overall. Nearly everything that happens with non-contending teams in September is irrelevant, but these Dodgers said farewell with a surprisingly hearty wave that was far different from those April Dodgers whose hands were only used for wringing. “You know, I felt a little energy around here the last month or so,” said Mattingly with a grin. You could feel it from the first two Giants batters, Justin Christian and Jeff Keppinger, both grounding out to next year’s starting shortstop, a kid named Dee Gordon. The fans roared at the double scoops, and feel free to check out the numbers of a kid who is batting nearly .300 and had 23 stolen bases — that is not a misprint — in just 49 games. “I really feel good about the energy he brings,” said Mattingly, who intimated that Gordon would have a chance to win next year’s job on a team that

needs to spend its scant available money elsewhere. Shortly after Gordon cleared the fans’ throats, Matt Kemp brought them to their feet with three doubles and a home run that resulted in the sort of thunderous “M-V-P” chants that have only been heard around here for a guy named Kobe. Only, Kemp has a much tougher road to the deserved MVP trophy, as his path is filled with hurdles laid out by writers who get stuck on that “V.” The voters need to get over it. Kemp leads the league in runs batted in and runs scored while ranking among the top three in batting average, homers, steals and slugging percentage. Even on baseball’s most forgotten bunch, how can those numbers not be considered valuable? He faces tough competition from the likes of Milwaukee’s Ryan Braun and Arizona’s Justin Upton because both of those players play for a potential championship team. But isn’t there already an award for potential championship teams? Isn’t that the trophy that is handed out when you win the World Series? It was, in all, a nice night except when some idiot woman stuck a Giants cap in the camera during the end of Jameson Moss’ “Don’t Stop Believing” act, momentarily resurrecting old boos and impulsive anger. However, the idiot was removed and things quickly quieted until Kemp’s eighth-inning homer brought back the noise. Unlike most of this summer’s nights, a night of forgetting, a night of remembering, a night where Cy Young waved, MVP wailed, Tommy coached, Dodger Stadium sang. And, glory hallelujah, Bryan Stow talked.

Overheard on campus

The cold, cold case of Jack the Ripper

Los Angeles Times

LONDON — It’s been called the world’s most famous cold case, a source of endless fascination and speculation ever since the first mutilated victim was found in a bloody heap 123 years ago on the gas-lighted streets of East London. So why is Scotland Yard suppressing information that some crime buffs think could offer fresh leads on the identity of Britain’s most notorious serial killer, Jack the Ripper? That’s the question baffling Trevor Marriott, a retired homicide detective who’s been waging a solitary legal battle to force “the Yard” to release uncensored versions of information recorded in thick Victorian ledgers that are gathering dust in an official archive. The volumes contain tens of thousands

of tidbits on the Yard’s dealings with the public and police informants in the years that followed the Ripper’s grisly two-month killing rampage in 1888. The shadowy figure is alleged to have slain five women in London’s seamy Whitechapel district, slitting their throats and, in some cases, eviscerating them with almost surgical precision. But the Metropolitan Police Service, as Scotland Yard is formally known, has staunchly refused to publish the documents in unexpurgated form, without names blacked out. In a surreal tribunal hearing in May, which saw a senior officer give evidence from behind an opaque screen and cite Judas Iscariot to support his point, the agency argued that laying everything bare would violate its confidentiality pledge to informants, even those long dead, and undermine recruitment

of collaborators in the present-day fight against terrorism and organized crime. Naming names might even put the snitches’ descendants at risk of revenge by the grudge-bearing heirs of those who were informed on, officials said. The threeperson tribunal agreed. And so the files continue to molder while Ripper enthusiasts like Marriott chafe, wondering what tantalizing clues remain hidden. “There may be a little gem in there which corroborates something we already know,” said Marriott, who has been working to unmask the killer since 2002. He has published a book outlining his own theory of whodunit centering on a lesser-known candidate who wound up convicted and executed for a brutal murder in the United States.

On the spot

Just skating — and dodging bodies I’ve just stumbled upon the longboard club (AZ Push), what’s going on here? Just skating. Good answer. How many people are part of the club? About 20 or so.


reflecting on the past

Nicolas Misurata

Pima Community College student

What’s the longboard club’s mission? These guys want to make it so that we can skate out here without getting harassed by the cops. Do you guys get harassed by the cops often? Every time we go out.

Every time? Damn. What’s the worst incident thus far? I was skating down one of the parking garages and I got my board confiscated. Did you get it back? Yeah, but I had to pay 50 bucks. Damn, man. Well, it’s small price to pay to skate a parking garage. Do you ever skate on campus during the day? During the summer, but sometimes during the day there’s too many students. Foot traffic is so bad around here, you can’t skate two feet without crashing into somebody. Yeah, we call that people slalom.
