Wildcats’ helmets to recognize AZ history CAMERON MOON Arizona Daily Wildcat

The five C’s of Arizona: Most elementary school students in the state know them. “Copper, cotton, citrus,” said Arizona defensive tackle Tevin Hood, who hails from Chandler, Ariz. “I forget what the other ones are.” The other two are climate and cattle, and together the five C’s are considered the foundation of the Arizona economy. One of those C’s will make its influence known at Arizona Stadium this weekend when the Wildcats take on Oregon State. Copper and the history of copper mining in Arizona are the inspiration for the new alternate copper helmets the Wildcats (3-1, 0-1 Pac-12) will debut this weekend in their Pac-12 home opener against No. 18 Oregon State (2-0, 1-0 Pac12) at Arizona Stadium. The UA was founded as an agricultural school, but also had a strong mining program, largely due to the amount of minerals in the soil and the mountains across the Arizona landscape. Mining for copper was not always as profitable as it is today. Today copper is used for railroads, clean and efficient water distribution, and electrification. “Everything with an on and off switch needs copper,” said Dr. Mary Poulton, the head of the department of Mining and Geological Engineering. Arizona currently produces about 60 percent of the U.S. copper supply, according to Poulton, but prior to becoming a world leader in copper mining, Arizona struggled with the metal because it is harder to mine as gold and silver. “Silver and gold were relatively easy to process because you mine them in their native element state,” Poulton said. “Copper is a lot more complex.” Before smelters were built in southern Arizona, copper ore was shipped by wagon to San Francisco, then loaded on a boat to Wales in the United Kingdom, where it

DAVID WALKER, founder and CEO of the Comeback America Initiative, speaks to students about bringing America out of debt on the UA Mall on Wednesday. According to the campaign, the federal deficit increases by $10 million every minute. “The overall point is that the country’s finances are a wreck,” Walker said. “That’s irresponsible, it’s unethical, it’s immoral and it needs to stop.”

Touring activist warns of growing national debt crisis KYLE MITTAN Arizona Daily Wildcat

Ten million dollars a minute. According to the paint job on a tour bus parked on the UA Mall yesterday afternoon, that’s the rate at which the national debt is continuously increasing. The tour, known as the $10 Million a Minute Tour, is led by the Comeback America Initiative and has been making its way across the U.S. in an effort to spread awareness about what the younger generation can do to bring the nation’s climbing debt to an end. The Mall presentation featured a speech from David Walker, the organization’s founder

and a former U.S. comptroller general under the administrations of former presidents Bill Clinton and George W. Bush. In the position, Walker served as the director for the Government Accountability Office and tracked all activity involving public funds. Now, as an activist, Walker preaches to the younger crowd regarding the national debt crisis, which he said will greatly impact the country’s future population. “The overall point is that the country’s finances are a wreck,” Walker said. “That we need to start putting them back in order, and that the consequence of our current path is that we are mortgaging the future of young people at record rates … That’s irresponsible,

it’s unethical, it’s immoral and it needs to stop.” But Walker added that the trend wouldn’t quit without the voices of young people who are currently uninformed about the issue, he said. A number of students turned out for the event for a variety of reasons, and left with varying opinions. Chula Robertson, a senior studying Spanish and global studies, said she went to the event for the free pizza, but was glad she stayed for the information. “I think it’s really interesting, especially if


Main Library limits overnight access YAZMINE MOORE Arizona Daily Wildcat

Bars on University Boulevard aren’t the only places checking IDs now. The UA Main Library has implemented a new policy that requires students who enter after 9 p.m. to not only swipe their CatCard to get through the door, but also present their ID to a student worker before entering. The overnight library access gives UA students a better environment for learning, research and group evaluation, said Travis Teetor, the library operations supervisor. But the new policy now ensures that only students have access to library resources. Students without a CatCard can’t be let in unless they can prove they’re a current student. They may do this by logging on to their UAccess account on the main desk computer. A paid student worker patrols the main information desk located in front of the self check-in and

check-out machines on the second floor from 9 p.m. to 7 a.m. Because the first hour of CatCard restriction tends to be the busiest, a second student worker stays to assist between 9 and 10 p.m. The two CatCard readers are located at the front of the library, one on the left-hand set of doors and then one on the handicapped access railing to the right of the entrance. Students swipe their CatCard in the device and once the light turns green, they can open the door. In addition to the student at the main information desk, there are at least two library staff members in the library every hour of the day. In the first few weeks after the CatCard system started up, students from Pima Community College or online colleges still tried to access the library after 9 p.m. Some of those students were previous UA students who attempted to use their CatCards to get in, but could not because their cards are no longer active with the university.

people are taking the time out of their day to come talk to students,” Robertson said. Computer science sophomore Alec Iverson said he found a flier for the event and decided to stop by, as politics had been on his mind recently. Iverson added that while he didn’t learn anything new from it, Walker’s presentation did affirm a number of thoughts he had regarding government spending. “The way government is going right now, it’s kind of not working,” Iverson said. “It’s not taking much action on things that need to be addressed. In my opinion, a lot of the current [elected officials] are focused more on getting re-elected than anything else.” Kate Heydorn, an environmental sciences sophomore, said she stopped by to learn more about the national debt, adding that the media doesn’t provide enough coverage to inform people about the issue. “I feel that I wanted to get a little more informed especially since the election is coming up,” Heydorn said, adding that she would check out the organization’s website later. “It’s clear that we have a bigger problem than I initially thought.” On the other hand, some students who showed up — and even asked questions ­­­ — didn’t take anything away. Kyle Boggs, a graduate student studying rhetoric and composition, asked Walker about the integrity of the country’s electoral process, but admitted that he didn’t get anything out of the answer. “To be honest, I don’t even know who this guy is,” Boggs said, adding that he came over from the union after noticing the presentation dealt with politics. “I just kind of wanted to see what conversations were taking place. I didn’t learn anything.” The Wildcat Events Board organized the event after former UA President Robert Shelton reached out and suggested they book the presentation, said Anthony Hermes, a business sophomore and the board’s speakers committee director. “We just think it’s a good idea to get students more aware of political issues that are going on,” Hermes said.

Despite the apparent need for the new policy, safety has never been an issue for some students. “The library is a convenient meeting place and there’s never been a situation where I’ve felt unsafe,” said Sean Fleming, a chemistry senior. Despite those who are irritated that they have to take out their CatCard and show it to the student worker, Spanish senior Raquel Sanchez said she does feel an increased level of safety. “I like it because before I didn’t like how anyone could come in,” she said. “I feel more safe.” Some students still maintain a level of caution, which could be a result of the number of transients that occasionally use library resources. “I’ll see creepy homeless people who are on Facebook and MySpace looking at young girls,” Sanchez said. “It’s disgusting.” According to Teetor, it’s important to report suspicious activity immediately. The library also has a chat system on its website that allows students to contact library officials from their computer or phone. Additionally, Peetor added that the libraries and the University of Arizona Police Department have a “good working relationship,” as UAPD is sometimes called to respond to various issues. Still, others are careful about what hours they use the library. “I feel safe for the most part,” said Amy Phelps, a media arts junior, “but if I came at night, I’d be more cautious.”

Gator killed after attacking old woman MCCLATCHY TRIBUNE


DELMAS ZICKEFOOSE rescued an elderly woman who was attacked by an alligator near a canal behind her mobile home in Florida.

ORLANDO, Fla. — The petite elderly woman flailed desperately in the canal behind her mobile home south of Leesburg. A neighbor drinking his morning coffee and looking out his kitchen window Wednesday couldn’t believe what he was seeing. He quickly dialed 911, then jumped into the 4-foot-deep water to help the woman in distress. Carol Hough, 84, had only one word to explain what happened to her: “Gator.” Her neighbor, Delmas Zickefoose, was shocked when he realized her arm was gone below the shoulder. “I held her,” the 68-year-old Zickefoose said. “I just held her, telling her everything would be all right, that rescue was on the way.” About nine hours later, state wildlife officials trapped and killed the alligator suspected of biting off Hough’s right arm. The 7-foot-5 male gator had taken bait near the canal where the attack occurred, said Lt. Joy Hill, a spokeswoman for the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission. “The alligator was not at all afraid of humans,” Hill said. “It didn’t move when we were standing near it.”

Although a necropsy found no human body parts in the gator’s stomach, Hill said wildlife officials are comfortable it was the gator that bit Hough based on reports of its size, but that “it is impossible to say with 100 percent certainty.” Hough remained in critical condition at Orlando Regional Medical Center. No one knows why Hough was in the water or how long she had been in there before Zickefoose saw her. But several large gators regularly swim near their homes at Cypress Creek Mobile Home Park, which sits between lakes Harris and Denham off U.S. Highway 27. Other neighbors said Hough had a history of being disoriented and might suffer from dementia. She had moved to Florida from Maine after her husband died. She asked for her late husband, Bob, after Zickefoose found her in the water at daybreak, around 7 a.m. After rescuing her, he brought her to a sandy shoreline near his house, wrapping his arms around her tiny frame. Hough was calm and alert, despite the loss of her arm, and only her single utterance, “gator,” offered any clue as to what had happened. “She was not upset, not screaming, as I held her,” he said. She said little, other than

asking for her late husband. While in the canal rescuing his neighbor, Zickefoose looked cautiously around them, remembering the large reptiles he has seen nearby. He didn’t see any but said he was ready to protect the two of them if any appeared. A Lake County deputy sheriff arrived and saw a gator at the end of the canal. He tracked it to the adjacent Helena Run, where a wildlife officer tried to shoot it. The gator remained underwater for several hours until it was finally captured. It’s not known what prompted the attack. Several gator attacks have occurred when people were with their pets, but Hough doesn’t have a pet. Hill said the gator was too comfortable after it was caught, behaving as if it had been fed by humans in the past. “It’s against the law, and it’s a very bad idea to feed a gator,” Hill said. “If an alligator gets used to being fed, they become less afraid of humans.” From 2007 to 2011, 34 people were injured and one person killed in gator attacks, wildlife officials said. Since 1948, there have been 337 unprovoked gator attacks against humans, including 22 fatalities, according to state records.

Chicago grad student accused of murder, arson MCCLATCHY TRIBUNE

CHICAGO — Tall, athletic and bright, DeJuan Pratt seemingly had everything going for him, according to his family. He graduated college in Ohio with a double-major in business and marketing, lettered in track and football, and moved to Chicago over the summer to pursue a masters degree. In late August, Pratt moved into an apartment in the city’s West Rogers Park neighborhood after the couple who lived there placed an ad on Craigslist looking for a third roommate. “He said it was a nice place and that he had roommates, that’s all,” said Pratt’s mother, Terri Starr. On Wednesday, Pratt, 24, was ordered held without bond on charges he fatally stabbed the roommates, Gary Brown, 64, and Chun Xiao Lee, 48, five days after he moved in. Prosecutors said the Roosevelt University graduate student lit the apartment on fire to cover up the crime, drove around in Lee’s car after the murders and later used both victims’ credit cards to finance a trip to Las Vegas. Detectives who were looking to question Pratt about the murders caught a break on Sunday when Pratt posted on Facebook from a hotel on the Vegas strip, authorities said. “Chilling right now — at The Venetian Las Vegas,” read the post, which was still visible on Pratt’s Facebook page Wednesday. When police arrested Pratt the next day at O’Hare International Airport, he was carrying the victims’ credit cards, Assistant State’s Attorney Jamie Santini said in court. Pratt was charged with first-degree murder, armed robbery, unlawful possession of a credit card, identity theft, possession of a stolen motor vehicle and aggravated arson. On learning of the charges from a Chicago Tribune reporter on Wednesday, Pratt’s mother and grandmother reacted with disbelief. He had grown up in a loving, churchgoing family and had no history of violence, they said. “I know my baby — I don’t believe it,”

Starr said in a telephone interview from Ohio. “It just doesn’t even sound like him.” Police and firefighters were called to the third-floor apartment at about 3:45 p.m. on Aug. 28 after reports of a fire. Brown and Lee were found lying side-by-side on a bed, wrapped in blankets. Officers found a partially melted gasoline container on the kitchen floor, according to police. Both victims had been repeatedly stabbed, Santini said. Brown was formerly an attorney who in his youth pitched in the minor leagues. About a year ago, he moved into Lee’s apartment, according to Brown’s ex-wife. Detectives learned Pratt had filed a report with police on the day of the murders in which he claimed to have been attacked by three unknown offenders and sustained a deep slash wound to his left hand, Santini said. Last week, a police sergeant spotted Lee’s missing Acura being driven by a man matching Pratt’s description, Santini said. After his arrest, Pratt initially denied any knowledge of the murders or arson, but he later admitted he was in the apartment at the time of the killings, Santini said. He also admitted taking the Acura, stealing the victims’ credit cards and using them to make purchases in Las Vegas, the prosecutor said. Pratt also admitted his claims of being attacked by unknown offenders was false, Santini said. The 6-feet-5-inch, 235-pound Pratt stood in court dressed in a T-shirt and dark jeans, his hair pulled back in long dreadlocks. He bowed his head as details of the alleged crime were read. Pratt graduated in the spring from Central State University near Dayton, Ohio. He also ran track and played football for the school’s Division II team, where his father, DeJuan Pratt Sr., is an assistant coach, according to the university. “He is an educated, upstanding university graduate who came here to further his education,” his attorney, Assistant Public Defender Julie Koehler, said after the bond hearing.

POLICE WILL take soil samples at this home in Roseville, Mich., in search of the remains of missing Teamsters boss Jimmy Hoffa.

Police to search for remains of Jimmy Hoffa MCCLATCHY TRIBUNE

DETROIT — Police will be taking soil core samples at a home in the Detroit suburb of Roseville on Friday in search of the remains of missing Teamsters boss Jimmy Hoffa, whose 1975 disappearance sparked one of the 20th century’s biggest mysteries. “We received information from an individual who saw something,” Roseville Police Chief James Berlin told the Detroit Free Press. “The information seemed credible, so we decided to follow up on it.” Berlin wouldn’t say who provided the tip — one of hundreds authorities have pursued in the years since Hoffa vanished from a restaurant parking lot in Oakland County, Mich. But he said the state’s Department of Environmental Quality used ground scanning radar last Friday to check out a spot under the driveway and found “an anomaly” that prompted authorities to make plans to return to the site Friday to take a soil sample. “We do not know if this is Jimmy,” Berlin said. The tipster told police Hoffa’s body may have been buried under the driveway of the home in the 18700 block of Florida, a residential neighborhood northwest of 12 Mile and Gratiot. Berlin said the informant “thought it was Jimmy because the same time this happened was the same time Jimmy disappeared,” Berlin said. Berlin said he planned to contact the FBI, which has spearheaded the three-decades-old murder investigation. “We believe he saw something,” Berlin said of the informant. “Whatever he saw was suspicious.”

Hoffa, 62, disappeared on the afternoon of July 30, 1975, from the parking lot of what then was the Machus Red Fox restaurant in Bloomfield Township. He had gone there for a reconciliation meeting with Anthony “Tony Pro” Provenzano, a mobconnected New Jersey Teamster official, and Anthony “Tony Jack” Giacalone, a Detroit mafia captain. The FBI theorized that Provenzano and Giacalone had Hoffa killed to prevent him from regaining the Teamsters presidency and ending the mob’s influence over the union and easy access to Teamster pension funds. Hoffa had run the union from 1957-71. At the time of his disappearance, Hoffa had served nearly five years of an 8- to 13-year prison sentence for fraud, conspiracy and jury tampering. Then-President Richard Nixon had commuted Hoffa’s sentence in late 1971 on condition that he stay out of union activities until 1980. Hoffa was in the process of challenging the condition. Despite thousands of tips, authorities never found Hoffa’s body, and no one has been charged in his disappearance. A woman who answered the phone at the Roseville home says she is “fully aware of what’s going on,” but she said she didn’t want to be interviewed at this point. She referred questions to the Roseville Police Department. Hoffa’s daughter, Barbara Crancer, a retired St. Louis administrative judge, said she doesn’t hold out much hope the search will produce her father’s body or solve the mystery of his disappearance.

Time for ASUA to offer new thoughts


he candidates in ASUA’s special election aren’t looking as bright and shiny as they used to. The election to fill former Sen. Claire Theobald’s seat in the Associated Students of the University of Arizona Senate brought out eight students, each running on platforms such as making ASUA more accessible, more transparent and more open to the public. If that’s all an ASUA campaign platform really requires, perhaps the Arizona Daily Wildcat’s editorial board should consider running in next semester’s regular election. But seriously, is it too much to ask that ASUA stop talking about how it can better reach out to the 31,565 undergraduate students it represents and just reach out to them already? Platforms built on the notion of increasing accessibility or transparency really only say this: “ASUA already does stuff, and people just aren’t paying attention.” If the Daily Wildcat followed the same course of logic, we would just write stories about how we write stories. Candidates rarely seem willing to say, “ASUA can do more, and here’s how,” though Alex Barbee, a history junior and the election’s lone female candidate, might be onto something. That whole 24-hour coffee shop at the library is probably too ambitious, but Barbee does deserve some recognition for advocating for better disability access. Barbee, who shattered her pelvis in a car accident, spent six months in a wheelchair. The experience offered her more insight into an underserved population on campus and inspired her to consider people with disabilities in her platform. Candidate Jeffrey Rightnowar chose to focus on overall student retention rates and implementing efforts, such as a peer shadowing program, to help students become more invested in the UA. On the other hand, during a question and answer session hosted by ASUA on Tuesday night, Morgan Abraham, an engineering management junior, touted his experience as president of the Alpha Epsilon Pi fraternity and Greek Life connections as qualifications for the senate seat. These connections would enable him to collaborate with ASUA and help bring Spring Fling to campus this year, he said. Bringing Spring Fling back to campus from Rillito Downs, where it has been held since 2000, has been a long-term initiative since at least 2011, under former ASUA President Emily Fritze, who was also a member of Chi Omega sorority. The offer isn’t new, but thanks for playing. The only idea that might have been less original and less interesting than “increasing accessibility to ASUA” likely belongs to candidate Jake Broido, who, at the Q & A on Tuesday, said he’d like to increase school spirit by organizing a barbecue on the UA Mall with students and athletes. Because, you know, the most pressing issue the UA must contend with is a lack of Wildcat pride. After years of being offered the same stale ideas, the new crop of candidates feels a lot like the bunch before. On occasion, the monotony is broken up by a particularly absurd idea, but for the most part, the mediocrity just remains mediocre. Increasing access for people with disabilities, improving student retention rates, improving graduation rates, representing more diversity on campus — these are real concerns. Making sure that people get to shake hands with an athlete or see a flier about ASUA Senate office hours is not an important issue. The problem is not how ASUA can make people more aware of student government’s existence, but how ASUA can better acknowledge the existence of students. — Editorials are determined by the Arizona Daily Wildcat editorial board and written by one of its members.

Your views LETTERS

In response to Daily Wildcat coverage of ASUA: To those of you who read this paper, however few you may be, let me start off by saying that I commend you on your efforts to stay informed about our University by reading the paper. The Daily Wildcat had MULTIPLE reporters at the ASUA Senatorial Candidate Forum this past Tuesday evening. They failed to report ANYTHING substantive about the forum, rather the paper resorted to chastising the ASUA site for their own lack of information about the candidates. If the Daily Wildcat was SO intent on the student body receiving knowledge about the Senatorial Candidates’ platforms, why didn’t they report ANY information on the platforms themselves after having two reporters sit through an hour of myself and my fellow candidates talk extensively on our platforms and their pending implementation? I was asked by a Daily Wildcat reporter after the debate for a quote, but rather than ask me about my all important forums she simply asked me if this was the first debate we were having ... this question was so painfully simple, and so obviously unmotivated, that I was only able to accurately answer it with one word. The reporter was then satisfied with my quote and walked away. If you want the students to know about the candidates, how about you ask them questions that can’t be answered with Yes or No. I don’t anticipate the Daily Wildcat to have any real impact on the elections, as usual, but I feel it is necessary to call you on your hypocrisy in this case. Below are my platforms. If you truly care about the students, and thus potential voters gaining knowledge about the senatorial race, please post my platforms in your paper: Community It is a pivotal time for the local businesses of Tucson, especially for those who have been affected by the construction of the rail line from campus through downtown. Upon completion of the line, there will be a huge opportunity for local businesses to connect with University Students who were unable to do so in the past. I want to help businesses in downtown Tucson attract University students in an effort to enrich our local economy, create a sense of responsibility in our community, and foster a more meaningful understanding among university students of what it means to live in Tucson. This rail line is a tool that deserves to be fully utilized by University students, and I’m going to

make sure that happens. Jobs In addition to raising awareness on campus about “Wildcat Job Link” and various career fairs, I intend to offer new opportunities to students who want to build meaningful relationships with alumni. You know the saying “It’s not what you know, it’s who you know”? Well, it’s kind of true when it comes to looking for jobs. My vision is to establish more opportunities on campus for alumni and undergrads to build relationships and share ideas. School Spirit I firmly believe that school spirit is an important part of our University. I would like to build upon our already stellar traditions, and create opportunities for students and athletes to come together on campus. Be it barbeques, movie nights, or community service, these events will strengthen our wildcat community and give students a chance to get to know our teams on a more personal level. For the athletes, it will give them an opportunity to connect with the student body and build a stronger relationship with their supporters. — Jake Broido, Senatorial candidate for the Associated Students of the University of Arizona

Online Comments

In response to “ASUA senatorial candidates host open Q&A” (by Rachel McCluskey, Sept. 26): Same ol’ same ol’. The thing is, the good candidates and people are being pushed out of the ASUA every semester. The people with bright, intelligent ideas are asked to leave the different programs and services every year because the directors already have their mind made up of what they want. The only people that stay are the ones who follow everything their directors say and do not question. The ASUA looks more and more like a high school student government every passing day. Have you visited the ASUA offices? It’s all about prep, pride and “going to the games”. Where are the bar charts of statistics these candidates are supposed to be working on? Instead of having a “cubbies for life” sign on the wall, where are blown up words of failed university policies these elected persons are supposed to be working on. Just an observation. — Anonymous Editor’s note: The Daily Wildcat invites all comments and letters to the editor. These can be submitted to:

Harsh voter ID laws limit openness of elections Dan Desrochers

Arizona Daily Wildcat


n the United States, you cannot be denied the right to vote because of sex, color or sexual orientation. But as the presidential election in November rapidly approaches, it seems you can be denied if you are likely to vote Democratic. Over the summer, multiple states with a Republican-majority legislature attempted to pass voter identification laws. Admittedly, some of these states have been working on stricter voter identification for years. But since 2011, Alabama, Texas, South Carolina and Tennessee all have passed voter ID laws that require photo identification. Only one state with a Democrat-controlled legislature, Rhode Island, has enacted a voter identification policy, passed earlier this year.

The Daily Wildcat editorial policy

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

“In this day and age, nothing could be more rational than requiring a photo ID when voters come to the polls,” said Patrick Cawley, a senior deputy attorney general in Pennsylvania, according to the Huffington Post. One can almost see his side: It’s surely not unreasonable to ask people to have proof that they are who they say they are. One could even put a spin on it and say that the only reason Democrats aren’t more willing to reform voter identification policies is because they risk losing some of their voting base. But according to data collected by the NYU Brennan Center for Justice, evidence from the 2004 gubernatorial election in Washington state shows that though voter fraud does happen,

it happens only about 0.0009 percent of the time. The 2004 Ohio elections were also similarly analyzed and revealed a voter fraud rate of 0.00004 percent. That doesn’t really make it an urgent issue, like Republican Gov. Rick Perry has claimed. Still, some states have taken it even further. A law in Pennsylvania would make student IDs an ineligible form of voter identification unless the ID has an expiration date. Take a look at your CatCard. There’s no expiration date on it. In fact, the majority of colleges and universities in Pennsylvania don’t have expiration dates on their IDs either, and despite universities like Penn State attempting to change this, the majority of upperclassmen won’t have expiration dates on their IDs. Additionally, Arizona law allows out-of-state students to participate in Arizona elections while they are living here. The same applies for outof-state students in Pennsylvania. This wouldn’t be a problem if Pennsylvania allowed out-of-state licenses to be eligible. It doesn’t.

This is strictly to discourage young voters from registering to vote in their home state of 4 years, so that their votes don’t screw up the projected results in a potential battleground state. Political science studies of voter behavior have shown, time and time again, that young voters tend to vote more liberally. Obama currently sits at an 12-percentage point lead in Pennsylvania, according to a Quinnipiac University/New York Times/CBS News poll. Stricter voter ID laws will undoubtedly influence the election. According to the NYU Brennan Center for Justice, photo identification is “a policy that disenfranchises up to 10 percent of eligible citizens.” But even one percent is too much. That’s not how a democratic republic works. You can’t keep people from voting just because you don’t like the way they vote. — Dan Desrochers is a prejournalism sophomore.

Fish out of water

A UAPD officer responded to the Hillenbrand Aquatic Center at about 2:49 a.m. on Sept. 22 in response to a motion alarm that was triggered in the pool area. When the officer arrived, another officer and a detective were already there. The officer entered the pool area and saw a man standing underneath the high dive board and a group of men and women swimming. When ordered to get out of the pool, all of them climbed out of the pool and ran toward the northwest area. Two of the women, who were naked, ran around looking for their clothes. The four men were roommates and the three women were roommates. All seven were UA students ranging from 19 to 22 years of age. They claimed that they weren’t attempting to leave, but were getting dressed. When the officer spoke with the women, they said they hadn’t realized the pool had motion detectors. Each student was cited and released for second-degree criminal trespassing.

Hush-hush hit-and-run

A black Volkswagen Jetta drove up on the sidewalk and grass area north of Coronado Residence Hall, running into a concrete trash can and a bicycle and almost hitting several witnesses at around 5:10 p.m. on Sept. 22. Witnesses later said that the driver rolled down his window and put his index finger to his lips as if he were telling them to be quiet. The car then drove away. An officer arrived at the scene shortly and spoke with witnesses about the hit-and-run accident. They all stated that pedestrians had been sitting on the benches on the north side of Coronado, near the bicycle racks, when the car drove up onto the sidewalk. The car came from Tyndall Avenue and was headed toward the closed gates at Euclid Avenue before the driver turned around. The concrete trashcan was destroyed, an ashtray was damaged and the bicycle had damage to its rear tire. Witnesses said that the vehicle had been traveling at a high speed. The driver was between 18 and 22 years of age. Several units patrolled the area, searching for a vehicle with significant damage to the front and passenger side. Photographs were taken at the scene and damaged parts left from the incident were placed into evidence. The general maintenance mechanic and the resident assistant on duty at Coronado were also informed of the incident. There was not enough information at the time to investigate further.

Two students were victims of a theft that occurred between 9 p.m. and midnight on the night of Sept. 17 in Apache-Santa Cruz Residence Hall. The police weren’t informed of the theft until Sept. 23, as the students’ RA was on vacation at the time of the incident. The students told the dispatched officer that they left their second floor dorm room to go to a friend’s room and didn’t return until hours later. Once they returned, they noticed their door was unlocked and $60 had been taken from the top of one of their desks. The student whose money had been stolen also noticed his iPod was gone. The second student realized his prescription medication had been taken from the top of his desk. The iPod was worth $200 and the stolen prescription medication was worth $20. The iPod owner was advised to contact UAPD if he was able to provide a serial number and the other resident was advised to call his insurance company so that he could refill his prescription. Both residents asked to be involved in any further proceedings.

Ponce’s talent leading Wildcats IMAN HAMDAN Arizona Daily Wildcat

Junior forward and midfielder Jazmin Ponce did not know what to expect when she came to Arizona to play Division I soccer in 2010. What she got was 47 career starts, the title of Wildcats’ leading scorer for 2011, a leadership role on a winning Wildcats team and the title of Student Athlete of the Month during the 2012 summer session. “Jazmin is a very talented player,” head coach Lisa Oyen said. “We enjoy watching her play and she has a phenomenal attitude about the game. She has this passion and creativity that you don’t see in other players. She recognizes the impact she can have on the game and has really embraced the leadership role.” As a freshman, Ponce played in 19 games and scored three goals on 49 shots, 20 of which were on goal. She was the second-highest scorer behind then–junior forward Renae Cuellar, who had six goals in the 2010 season. In her sophomore year, the Wildcats struggled as a team, but Ponce still took her leadership role very seriously. “I felt like I matured as a player,” Ponce said. “My confidence went up a lot, but it is nothing compared to how my junior year is now.” Ponce led Arizona in 2011 with two goals. She took 40 shots, nine fewer than in the previous season, with only 16 being on goal. Still, she made 40 percent of her shots on goal. “She has worked on every aspect of her game,” Oyen said. “We have seen the mental and physical improvements of her game and it can be seen she has grown as a player.”

Just 10 games into this season, Ponce leads the team with six goals, tripling her total from last season. She is also three goals away from surpassing Arizona’s team total of eight goals from last season. Ponce has already taken 45 shots, just four fewer than her all-time high in 2010, which in turn increased her shot to goal percentage to 51 percent. “The way Jazmin attacks is a great part of our team,” junior midfielder Susana Melendez said. “We connect most of the passes to goal and the goals through her. We try to find her feet as much as we can.” Ponce’s risk-taking has pushed Arizona into a winning season with a potential spot in the NCAA tournament. This weekend could be recordbreaking for Ponce as the Wildcats take on UCLA on Friday and USC on Sunday at home. Plus, she will get to share this weekend with her number-one fan: her dad. Ponce’s father got her started in soccer after she practically lived on the field while her four older brothers played. “I’m really excited that he is coming,” Ponce said. “It makes this weekend even more special for me. I sent him a plane ticket as a surprise because he always wants to see the UCLA, USC games.” Her teammates, the freshmen in particular, admire her leadership. “After my first workout with the team I was shocked because it was pretty hard,” freshman forward Hannah Wong said. “Jazmin turned to me and said, ‘Don’t worry, it will get easier. We are here for you,’ and she was just really nice about it.”


MIDFIELDER JAZMIN PONCE has been one of the Wildcats’ best goal-scorers over the last few years and has six goals already this season.

No. 7 Stanford will be a challenge for UA volleyball EMI KOMIYA Arizona Daily Wildcat

colin prenger/arizona Daily Wildcat

SETTER LAUREN FULLER (No. 21) has taken on a key role as the UA’s freshman setter.

Arizona takes on No. 7 Stanford on Friday at 7 p.m. at McKale Center. The Wildcats put up a fight against Washington in a 3-1 loss last weekend, but the game against a talented Cardinal squad should be a tougher test. Stanford (10-2, 2-0 Pac12) opened conference play with a sweep over Cal and went 3-1 against Utah. “Stanford is just one of those teams that’s just good at volleyball,” junior libero Candace Nicholson said. “They don’t have any overpowering players, they just know how to play and the coach is one of the best.” Arizona will need some luck this weekend, and the young Wildcat talent will have to play like veterans to avoid extending their losing streak to two games. Arizona has an all-time 7-57 record against the Cardinal. “Right now, we’re just mainly focusing on what we can improve as

a team,” junior setter Chanel Brown said. “We just need to go out there and compete and play hard to make sure every point counts.” The Cardinal had a preseason record similar to the Wildcats’ and now stands 10-2. Regardless, Stanford remains one of the toughest teams in the nation. With just four freshmen on its roster, Stanford is an experienced team in the Pac-12. Wildcat head coach Dave Rubio said the teams in the conference play at a much higher level. They will respond where other teams haven’t. “I asked my team this,” Rubio said. “I said, ‘How does that make you feel? How often are we going to get close and lose? And how often are we going to turn a corner and beat a good team?’” His hope is to see the UA defeat tougher opponents that it is considered an underdog against. Stanford could be one of them. “Luck plays a big role going into the Pac-12 because on any given

night anyone can beat anyone,” Nicholson said. “It will definitely take a little bit of luck and us playing well.” A home court advantage may be the help the Wildcats need to pull off a win against Stanford.

She said it:

“When you hear big names like that, it’s always a little intimidating, but anything can happen,” sophomore middle blocker Rachel Rhoades said. “You hear about all these random upsets all the time.”

Who to watch:

Both teams have starting freshman setters, with Lauren Fuller playing for Arizona and Maddi Bugg for Stanford. Fuller recently became a starter for Arizona in a two setter rotation with junior setter Chanel Brown. Stanford’s middle blocker Carly Wopat will be a major offensive threat that Arizona will need to shut down. Wopat ended the season with 1.63 blocks per set, good for second in the nation.

Bondurant’s feel for the game lifts Arizona defense KYLE JOHNSON Arizona Daily Wildcat

Safety Tra’Mayne Bondurant broke onto the scene for Arizona as a true freshman in 2011 and starred on an otherwise terrible defense. Bondurant was an honorable mention for the Pac-12 AllConference after recording 45 total tackles, 3.5 for a loss and one interception. With his switch to the “spur” safety position in the Wildcats 3-3-5 “odd stack” defense, Bondurant seemed poised to be a defensive star for the Wildcats this season. He had a breakout game against Oregon, recording 10 total tackles and a team-high three for a loss. “I was just playing hard and trying to focus on getting as many tackles as I can, get as many stops,” Bondurant said. “We were just trying to get them off the field, so I was going to do whatever I can to help.” Head coach Rich Rodriguez said Bondurant has a certain feel for the game and can recognize the development of plays quickly.

“We always try to coach it,” Rodriguez said. “But you hope that they have some of it naturally and he does.” Bondurant’s team-high 6.5 tackles for loss this season seem to back up his ability to diagnose plays quickly, but the sophomore said it’s just something he was blessed with. “It has to be [from] Jesus,” Bondurant said. “I’ve been doing it for a long time, just playing football. I just go out there and play hard and if I see something I just know to attack. “If you play at full speed you can always accomplish things you think you can’t. My main focus is always to play fast.” Toughness is also a trait that defines Bondurant, Rodriguez said, and it’s something he developed from some of the hardships in his life. “He comes from a tough background, as tough a background of anybody on this team,” Rodriguez said. “I think part of his resolve is due to that.” One of those hardships came during spring camp when Bondurant’s cousin passed away,

inspiring him to dedicate his No. 21 to him. “I just learned to always be strong and always be my own man,” Bondurant said, “Always have a strong will [and] heart to just go out there and play at full speed, play for myself and my family.”

McKnight brothers at cornerback Corner Jonathan McKnight has established himself as a lockdown corner this season for the Wildcats, snaring an interception in three straight games. Now, his brother will try to do the same thing for the New York Jets in the NFL. Joe McKnight was a star running back at USC from 2007-2009 and now plays for the Jets. But with the Jets’ loss of Pro Bowl corner Darrelle Revis, they’ve decided to move Joe McKnight to defense, a move the former Trojan wasn’t particularly happy about. “I was drafted as a running back,” Joe told ESPN New York. “The way I

Arizona hockey 19th in preseason ranks JAMES KELLEY Arizona Daily Wildcat

The Wildcat hockey team was ranked No. 19 in the preseason poll released Friday. Arizona (2-0-0) will face eight teams ranked in the preseason poll, including six of the top 10 teams. “I was kind of hoping we’d be higher, but being 19 to start the season is not bad, better than what we were last year,” head coach Sean Hogan said. The Wildcats finished last year ranked No. 25. “I think it’s fairly reasonable,” senior forward Brian Slugocki said. “We finished right about this spot last year and I think it shows that we have a lot of room to improve.” Arizona’s schedule includes eight games against No. 4 ASU, four each against No. 7 Minot State

and No. 9 Liberty, three games with No. 6 Oklahoma and No. 13 Central Oklahoma and two against No. 5 Oakland, No. 13 Illinois and No. 3 Ohio. The top 20 teams in the poll make the national tournament, but like the NCAA tournament, the conferences get automatic bids and some conference winners are not expected to be in the top 20. Hogan said they’ll need to finish in the top 16.

Wildcats healthy for the most part

Sophomore forward Justin Gaudino suffered a concussion and two freshmen are out, but overall Hogan is happy with Arizona’s health. “We’re pretty good,” Hogan said.

“Gaudino’s out with a concussion, we got some bumps and bruises but I don’t expect anybody to be out besides Gaudino that would normally be in the lineup.” Freshman defenseman Bryan Drazner, who has mononucleosis, will be out until the Illinois trip on Oct. 12, and freshman defenseman Nick Hinsberg is out until at least Thanksgiving because of hip surgery.

Watanabe goes pro

Former Arizona hockey player John Watanabe will leave Friday to try out for a minor league team. Watanabe, who played last season for Arizona and is a current UA student, will try to make the Evansville IceMen of the East Coast Hockey League, the AA affiliate of the St. Louis Blues.


THE ARIZONA HOCKEY team is getting healthy just in time for its series against ASU.

Ex-Wildcats announced for Red-Blue game ZACK ROSENBLATT Arizona Daily Wildcat


The annual McDonald’s Red-Blue game is 24 days away, and on Wednesday the Wildcats announced that the 1987-88 men’s basketball team will be celebrating the 25th anniversary of its trip to the Final Four. Team members confirmed to attend include head coach Lute Olson, Jud Buechler, Sean Elliott, Steve Kerr, Kenny Lofton, Harvey Mason, Craig McMillan, Matt Muehlebach, Sean Rooks, Tom Tolbert, Joe Turner and manager Eric Meyer. The Red-Blue game is an intrasquad scrimmage that will take place on Oct. 21 at McKale Center, and will provide fans the chance to see the highly-touted freshman class of Kaleb Tarczewski, Gabe York, Brandon Ashley and Grant Jerrett, plus transfer point guard Mark Lyons, for the first time. Last year, head coach Sean Miller managed to bring in a number of prominent NBA players from the UA, including Derrick Williams, Andre Iguodala, Channing Frye, Jerryd Bayless, Jason Terry, Richard Jefferson and

FORMER WILDCAT Andre Iguodala will be inducted into the UA’s Ring of Honor on Oct. 21.

Chase Budinger. Budinger and Williams were inducted into the Ring of Honor alongside top Wildcats performers like Elliott, Kerr and others. Terry was honored for the NBA championship he won with the Mavericks in 2011. Iguodala, a member of the U.S. gold medal-winning basketball team in the Summer Olympics, will join the ring of honor, according to Miller. “Hope to welcome back [Iguodala] for our Red Blue Weekend by hanging his name in our Ring Of Honor for his gold medal in London! #TeamUSA,” Miller tweeted on Aug. 18. After eight seasons with the Philadelphia 76ers, Iguodala was traded to the Denver Nuggets on Aug. 10 in a blockbuster four-team trade that sent Dwight Howard from the Orlando Magic to the Los Angeles Lakers. Arizona will have its first exhibition game against Humboldt State on Oct. 31 and its first regular season game on Nov. 11 against Charleston Southern. Advance prices for the RedBlue game are $8 for adults and $5 for children (ages 3-17). Prices rise to $10 and $7 if purchased at McKale Center on game day.

Baseball to open season in February EVAN ROSENFELD Arizona Daily Wildcat

The Arizona baseball team will begin its defense of the College World Series on Feb. 15 as it opens the season against Coppin State. The Wildcats will play 21 of their first 23 games and 38 total out of their 55 game-season at Hi–Corbett this year.

The Wildcats’ other 23 non-conference games will be played in the confines of pitcher-friendly Hi-Corbett, including two games against rival ASU on April 9 and April 30. On March 15, the Wildcats will host Oregon State, the last Pac-12 school to win the College World Series, in 2007. Arizona will host Utah, Washington, Cal and USC for three series at home and will travel to Washington State, Stanford, UCLA, Oregon and ASU for weekend series. On Oct. 4 at 6 p.m., the Wildcats will play an exhibition game against the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim’s instructional league team at Diablo Stadium in Tempe, Ariz., and will officially begin practices on Oct. 8.

NFL refs end lockout, will return this week MCCLATCHY TRIBUNE

EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. — The NFL’s referee nightmare has come to an end. In the wake of unceasing criticism, impatient anger and awfully bad publicity, the NFL and the union that represents game officials came to a new eight-year labor agreement late Wednesday night, a source confirmed to The Record. The established referees are expected to be in Baltimore in time for Thursday night’s Week 4 game between the Browns and Ravens, then cover the full slate of Sunday and Monday games. The end of the owner-imposed lockout will close one of the most embarrassing chapters in NFL history, a chapter that turned into a national joke at the conclusion of Monday night’s marquee game between the Packers and Seahawks. As loop after loop of the lastsecond blown call flashed across

our television sets, the league had no choice but to get back to the bargaining table and cross the settlement finish line. Wednesday turned out to be that day, though it was a rocky one. When early reports of imminent settlement were replaced by a seeming reality of continued stalemate, the conversation continued to flash back to Monday night, when replacement officials cost the Packers — the Super Bowl champions just two seasons ago who now are 1-2 — a game. As this season rolled into its firstquarter finale, players were still talking about the debacle in Seattle, when replacement officials gave a winning Hail Mary touchdown to Seattle rather than an interception to Green Bay. Players were still talking about continuing to operate at the highest level of their profession while being judged by the lowest-level referees, a situation they all tried to ignore, but knew had to be resolved.


MONDAY NIGHT this was called a touchdown, causing uproar all through the NFL.


took it as I wasn’t good enough to play running back — that’s what I took it as. I don’t know if that’s the case or not.” While Joe McKnight is reportedly unhappy about the change in position, his younger brother Jonathan McKnight isn’t quite as pessimistic. Jonathan McKnight said he hasn’t had a chance to talk with his brother yet, but his advice to him is to just listen to the coaches. “He’s been playing corner since high school,” Jonathan McKnight said. “I’m sure he hasn’t forgotten about it. So hopefully he’ll do a good job there.” Joe isn’t convinced his high school experience will translate to the NFL. “That does not help at all,” Joe McKnight said to ESPN New York. “It’s been a while since I played cornerback, maybe if I’d played cornerback in college four years. Me playing cornerback in high school does not help right now.”

was melted down to usable copper metal before being shipped back. Along with red brick, copper is the most used substance on the UA campus, whether in pipes, electrical wiring or the new tracks that will be used for the Sun Link Tucson Modern Streetcar. Hood appreciates the importance of copper to the state of Arizona, where he grew up. “I know it played a major role in the development of the state,” Hood, a graduate of Hamilton High School in Chandler, said. “We went to the state history museum when I was in elementary school and learned about the five C’s.” Arizona’s latest addition to its uniforms will not include a similarly colored jersey or pair of pants, so the helmet will be worn with the red,



white or blue jerseys the Wildcats already have. “It’s always special to get new things, like last year with the white helmets,” said junior guard Chris Putton, a Glendale, Ariz. native. “We’re all pretty excited for those.” The introduction of the copper helmets comes at a time in college football when schools are constantly upgrading their uniform combinations for recognition, recruiting or simply to gain a mental edge over an opponent. “That’s the age of college football,” UA receivers coach Tony Dews said. “Uniforms and different colors and things excite the kids. Whatever makes they happy and makes them play better.” The Wildcats are coming off a 49-0 thrashing against No. 2 Oregon, so to some, the introduction of the copper domes will be a reintroduction of sorts for Arizona football. “I think after that bad

game, it’s the perfect time to bring them out and show people that it was just a fluke,” Putton said. “We’re ready to play.” Sophomore running back Ka’Deem Carey, a Tucson native, added, “Having the copper helmets brings out the state more. It puts it out there nationwide what we do in Arizona.” Even though the copper helmets are intended to honor the importance of copper to Arizona, Poulton doesn’t anticipate the helmet bringing very much attention to copper and Arizona’s history of mining. “It would be great to think that people would think of that [Arizona’s mining history], but I don’t know how many will make the connection,” Poulton said. “For those of us in the industry, we think it’s really nice for the athletic department to give recognition to the history of the copper mining industry.”

One wonders if Stanford linebacker Trent Murphy thought this after sacking USC quarterback Matt Barkley twice in the Cardinal’s 21-14 win over the Trojans back on Sept. 15: “That’s nothing compared to roping or grappling steers.” Murphy, who roped and wrestled steers as a youth back in Mesa, Ariz., has “cowboyed up” the past one-plus seasons with a total of 8.5 sacks for the Cardinal. The 6-foot-6, 261-pound Murphy dropped Barkley for a 13yard loss early in the second quarter. Barkley coughed up the ball, but it was recovered by the Trojans. As Stanford was salting away the game late in the fourth quarter, Murphy sacked Barkley a second time. Murphy, who plays on the weak side, has 12 tackles this season, 4.5 for a loss. Murphy gets his 17th career start when the Cardinal visits Seattle’s CenturyLink Field on Thursday evening to take on Washington. Murphy, born in Scottsdale, Ariz., spent several years trying to contain steers as a youth. His father, Jerry, was a team roper at rodeos. “I’ve been in a couple of small rodeos, but I wouldn’t call them rodeos,” said Trent Murphy, one of six children. “When we moved to a neighborhood when I was young, we joined a club and bought a horse. One horse turned into six. We got a couple of steers and built a little roping arena. My father was a big guy to be on a horse. I felt bad for the horse. It was a fun time before my football days got too serious in high school.” Murphy starred at Brophy Prep in Phoenix and as a senior, Murphy recorded 59 tackles, 9.5 sacks, two blocked field goals and had three fumble recoveries. Ranked the 19th-best recruit in Arizona by, Murphy was tabbed the all-state Defensive Player of the Year by The Arizona Republic.

The Broncos won the 5A-1 title Murphy’s freshman and junior years, losing in the state final by seven points when he was a senior. “Trent was one of the best players we’ve had here,” said Brophy Prep coach Scooter Molander, in his eighth season. “He was a great leader and brought passion to the game and to practice. You could give Trent multiple calls and he wouldn’t get bogged down. He was a smart football player.” Murphy was brought up to varsity as a freshman, when he played on the scout team during practices. “He was 6-5, 190, going up against our big linemen,” Molander said. “They’d pull out, he’d take them on and never complain.” One time, Murphy took on an 800-pound cow when he was messing around on his ranch. The story is as long as the cow was big. “We had a male baby cow that someone gave to us as a gift,” Murphy said. “We would go out and play with it every day. You could pet it, so it was used to people. It was friendlier than most cows.” Murphy returned from college after his freshman year and the baby cow had gotten somewhat bigger in Murphy’s absence. “Now it was a full-grown male cow,” Murphy said. “I still thought it was that playful cow, which it still was, at heart. I jumped in the pen and started pushing on his head. I grabbed its horns for a second. It started getting playful, but it’s an 800-pound cow. It started getting territorial, so we got into this pushing match. “I grabbed both of its horns, but it tried to drive me back and run me over. So I gave it one tug back and it went up on its hind legs. I turned around and booked it, then hopped over the fence. It wasn’t the smartest thing to do. My mother did not approve of that.” So going up against football players is nothing for Murphy, right? “The football players can plan,” Murphy said. “They can think a little more than cows.”
