RED-TAGGED STUDENT LIFE
District on 5th’s early-semester parties prompt neighborhood complaints, police action; some residents say not all are to blame BRITTNY MEJIA Arizona Daily Wildcat
As the District on 5th’s management works to resolve discontent surrounding the new studenthousing complex, on the corner of Fifth Avenue and Sixth Street, some residents complain of an inadequate staff, antagonistic neighbors and vilification in the press. Since around move-in day, the Tucson Police Department has responded to several complaints regarding loud music and people partying in the pool area. Most recently, the apartment complex received a red-tag violation for the pool, according to TPD Capt. Jim Webb. In order to deal with these issues, management has increased security measures on the property, lowered the occupancy of the pool, adjusted pool

hours and enforced repercussions for violations, according to a media statement from the District. However, some residents said they feel they are being punished for the actions of a few others. “I don’t want to say they should enforce more laws and be stricter, but at the same time it is 10 percent of the people who are misbehaving that need to face repercussions,” said Alyssa Rogers, a sophomore studying philosophy, politics, economy and law. Rogers is a District resident who has dealt with parties every weekend, vomit on several parking garage levels and an attack in the parking lot from an intoxicated woman. Although she understands the desire to have fun, she said she does not agree with the chaos in the complex. “I’m not a sourpuss, I like to have fun too,” Rogers said. “But I don’t like finding vomit and

Rep. Ron Barber hosted a town hall meeting on Tuesday evening in the Space Sciences building in an effort to address the concerns of local and student veterans. The purpose of the meeting, Barber said, was to provide outreach to constituents dealing with issues of health care, education and employment after serving. “I want veterans to know that our office really is on their side and that we’re here to support them in dealing with any federal agency that is making it difficult for them to get
trash in the hallway. I don’t pay $700 a month to find trash all throughout my hallway because some people decided to rummage through the place.” Other residents argue that the noise and apartment problems are typical of a college town and should be expected, especially in a new apartment complex. “I have respect for the neighbors around us, but I think they need to calm down,” said Maggie Hutcherson, a pre-education sophomore. “It’s a college town, I don’t know what they expect. It’s a brand-new apartment and you’re going to get this anywhere if you build a brand-new apartment.” Some neighbors agree with District residents and understand, given the complex’s proximity to campus.
“Everyone is set in their ways, but we live in a college area,” said Ajia Simone, a Fifth Avenue resident for more than 15 years. “I’ve always been for it, because it’s just a part of the natural growth of the neighborhood.” Some residents attribute the initial problems with the neighborhood and community to the limited information the District staff provided. “We weren’t told anything before we moved in except, ‘Here’s your apartment, have fun … there’s the pool,’” said Catrina Wiese, a prebusiness sophomore and a District resident. “They didn’t say anything like, ‘Hey, be quiet. We have neighbors. Don’t be so crazy.’” However, after managing issues and
ASUA senator vacates seat early in semester, special election planned MATT BURNS Arizona Daily Wildcat
Less than three weeks into the semester, ASUA plans to hold a special election to fill a vacant seat in the ASUA Senate. The election, set to take place Oct. 3, is for the seat of former UA student Claire Theobald, who transferred to another school “for personal reasons,” said Elections Commissioner Leo
Oppenheimer. Bylaws of the Associated Students of the University of Arizona Senate mandate a special election to fill seats vacated before Nov. 1. Seats vacated on or after Nov. 1 are filled by the appointment of ASUA president. Students interested in applying as a candidate for Theobald’s seat must pick up a special elections packet from ASUA offices, in the Student Union Memorial Center, and collect 200 signatures endorsing their candidacy.
Forms and signatures must be submitted by noon, Sept. 17. Applicants will be notified of their candidacy by Sept. 20. A candidate meeting will be held Sept. 21 at 4 p.m., after which candidates may begin campaigning. ASUA will also hold an open forum Sept. 25 in the Ventana Room. Campaigning will end Oct. 3, when electronic voting will open on the ASUA website. Voting will close that evening.

Deputy general counsel to retire Friday YARA ASKAR Arizona Daily Wildcat
After dedicating 33 years to the UA as a university attorney, and later as senior deputy general counsel, Lynne Wood will officially retire on Friday. Wood announced her retirement in October 2011, shortly after she was named vice chairwoman for the Angel Charity for Children. â€œThat just made sense in terms of where I [was],â€? Wood said. The announcement came with a yearâ€™s notice because Wood has â€œa lot of institutional memory, a lot of clientsâ€? and she hoped to provide â€œan opportunity for the office to adjust to the transitioning that was necessary,â€? she said. Wood began serving as deputy general counsel in 2005. A week after her announcement, thenPresident Eugene Sander asked Wood to serve as temporary interim general counsel until Laura Johnson was hired as vice president for legal affairs and general counsel. â€œWhen I was new here she helped guide me and provide any assistance needed,â€? Johnson said, â€œand she was really instrumental at helping me feel at home here.â€? Wood gave the idea of retirement a lot of

thought, she said. â€œIt was one of those life changing decisions but it was the right thing for me to do,â€? Wood said. â€œIt would be a little weird getting up and not having to put my lawyer clothes on, but I am pretty sure I will adjust.â€? The decision to retire felt right, Wood said, because it was an opportunity to bring in younger people. â€œThere are so many younger lawyers that need to be hired,â€? Wood said, â€œbecause when you have been in a place for a while you also have to think about not only how you as an employee are doing but how the office is doing.â€? The office of the general counsel serves as a lawyer for the UA and for the Arizona Board of Regents. The counsel represents the president, vice president and dean of students. The
counsel also advises a student hearing body. As the office strives to understand what its clientâ€™s needs are and how to help them find a legal way to do what they want, Wood has faced challenging cases where it was difficult for her to provide clients with advice they did not want to hear, she said. Wood said working at the university has been a great opportunity because â€œpeople donâ€™t always get to be in the circumstances to have the job that best suits them, and it has suited me.â€? â€œI love working for the university,â€? she added. â€œI love working at a place where the mission is to increase knowledge, help people gain skills and education and think critically about things.â€? Wood received both her bachelor of arts in history and law degree at the UA. After law
school, Wood joined the Navy where she entered the Judge Advocate General Corps. She was the first woman to be accepted into the program. The JAG program was typically for male students who want to attend law school but still had military requirement to fulfill. Wood was stationed at Pearl Harbor and later San Diego, then interviewed for her starting position at the office of general counsel. After 25 years of working with Wood, Marsha Fishman, executive associate to the vice president, said it was a privilege to be in the same office as she was in. â€œLynne has a great sense of humor,â€? she added. â€œItâ€™s her sense of humor that makes it fun to work with her. It gets really hard for me because she hired me and itâ€™s an end of an era for me.â€?
complaints, the apartment complex has implemented more rules to help prevent problems. In a notice sent out to residents, management explained rules for the pool, traffic and repercussions for any violations. â€œThis notice isnâ€™t meant to damper your fun (college living is all about enjoying the experience), but we are asking that you observe the noise regulations that are enforced on the property and in the surrounding community,â€? the notice read. Those who violate the rules will face violations ranging from a first violation fee of $50 and a 10-day notice of noncompliance to a third violation fee of $200 and a potential eviction that would still include responsibility for the rest of the lease, according to the notice. In the notice, management also explained that as a result of â€œunsanctioned pool partiesâ€? the amount of pool occupants would be lowered to 70 people. Additionally, the pool hours were changed to 8 a.m. to 9 p.m., Friday through Sunday. Since the hours have changed and security has been enforced, TPD has not heard of any issues this past weekend, according to Webb. There are also architectural changes planned to the north side of the property in order to mitigate the sound that would carry out into the neighborhood, according to City Councilman Steve Kozachik. Some students voiced their concerns about the wall and about being ostracized from the community. â€œI think that if youâ€™re going to isolate us further, youâ€™re not really treating us like adults, youâ€™re just hiding us from the community,â€? Rogers said. â€œWhatâ€™s to stop us from being this madhouse?â€? However, some people are
services or benefits,â€? Barber said. Joining Barber were coordinators from various local veteran support organizations as well as Cody Nicholls, an assistant dean of students and director of the UAâ€™s Veterans Education and Transition Services Initiative. While numbers for this yearâ€™s veteran enrollment are not yet available, Nicholls said during the meetingâ€™s panel discussion that nearly 1,000 student veterans were enrolled at the UA last fall. Nicholls added that the UAâ€™s Veterans Services Office is available to assist incoming veterans with almost everything while attending the university, adding that some of the most significant issues that UA veterans deal with are directly related to class preparation. Once here, Nicholls said, those students immediately have to organize their educational benefits, which can sometimes run out before they are due to graduate. â€œThat creates a serious financial situation,â€? Nicholls added. â€œA lot of veterans are non-traditional students who are married, some have kids, some are working parttime jobs, and so now theyâ€™re finding that in addition to everything else theyâ€™re balancing, those educational benefits are running out.â€? Most recently, the university has made improvements to the way it tracks incoming students, allowing

While Nicholls spoke highly of the universityâ€™s veterans services in general, he said that improvements are still being made and that Barberâ€™s willingness to host a town hall meeting on campus helps with efforts to expand outreach and improve the services even more. â€œWe wouldnâ€™t have that opportunity to hear those stories if Congressman Barber didnâ€™t have this town hall meeting,â€?

Scholars’ society inducts 200 new members STEPHANIE CASANOVA Arizona Daily Wildcat
The National Society of Collegiate Scholars’ UA chapter inducted almost 200 new members at their induction convocation at SUMC’s Grand Ballroom Tuesday night. The society’s officers found themselves searching for more chairs and ultimately having to open the north side of the ballroom due to an unexpected number of guests. The society, which promotes scholarship, leadership and service, inducted 80 percent more new members this year than that of the previous school year. The officers, most of them upperclassmen, introduced themselves to the new members and encouraged them to participate in community service events. Members are required to maintain a 3.4 grade point average and be in the top 20 percent of their class to join the society. “I’m not really involved with anything else here on campus,” said Keara Tintle, a linguistics sophomore, new member and the UA chapter’s social chair. “Being involved in the community and helping others, it’s a great way to get in the loop.” Preparation for Academic Collegiate Excellence, a program within the society, recently started a new volunteer tutoring program where UA students will go to Mansfeld
Middle School to tutor seventh and eighth graders. Hannah Holman, executive vice president of the society’s UA chapter and a veterinary science junior, said the chapter has been working on the tutoring project for a long time. The society’s UA chapter is one of the largest in the country, with about 2,000 members. They are one of nine chapters that have earned the Platinum STAR status and the only chapter that earned the Civic Spirit Award in the last school year, according to Scott Mobley, senior manager of member engagement. There are more than 300 chapters in the U.S. “The U of A chapter definitely stands out,” Mobley said. “They are a group that’s very committed to making a difference in the Tucson community. They’re constantly looking for ways that they can get their members engaged.” Mobley works in the national office in Washington D.C. and travels to colleges to attend some of the society’s events. Tuesday was Mobley’s first time visiting the UA and the induction was the biggest event he’d ever attended, he said. Along with reaching out to the community to promote higher education, the society’s UA chapter also plans fundraising events throughout the community. “The things that they do for the community just seem so awesome

and I just wanted to be a part of that,” Tintle said. In April 2011 the UA chapter got involved with the B+ Foundation, which provides financial and emotional support to children fighting cancer. Through the foundation, the members met Landin Cody, a 5-yearold boy who had leukemia at the time, and began to spend time with him at the hospital and raise money to help his family with medical bills. “They would always come to visit
him they would take him outside … just any kind of things to take his mind off of being in the hospital and being sick,” said Erika Cody, Landin’s mother. “It’s just a great society.” Now 7 years old, Landin stood in front of the nearly 500 attendees Tuesday night and said a few words about his experience with the members of the UA’s chapter and that with their help he made it through his struggle against cancer.
Claim of iPhone hacking raises questions about FBI data
WASHINGTON — A hacker group’s claim that it obtained from an FBI laptop a file with more than 12 million identification numbers for Apple iPhones, iPads and other devices has set off widespread speculation about why a federal agency would possess such information. But the FBI disputed the allegation Tuesday. If the FBI’s denials prove correct, the agency may have been the victim of a clever hoax by the group known as AntiSec that spurred thousands of headlines and left readers wondering how the FBI could have gotten access to Apple customer records. The hackers said they found the file when they infiltrated a Dell laptop computer belonging to Christopher K. Stangl, a member of the FBI’s Cyber Action Teams. They posted to a website a file containing 1 million of the unique device identifiers, or UDIDs, to bolster their claim. The hacker group set off a flurry of speculation among privacy activists that the data was linked to the National Cyber-Forensics and Training Alliance, a partnership of business, government T:10”
“Cancer has been really disappointing,” Landin said. The new members walked across the stage as they were congratulated by their chapter president and other officers. They then pledged to maintain integrity and honesty and to represent scholarship, leadership and service. “It feels a lot more official to see everyone getting their handshakes,” Tintle said. “Definitely feels more concrete now.”
and academia that includes a former FBI agent as its director of operations. No one from that organization responded to requests for comment. The NCFTA, which is based in Pittsburgh, has billed itself as a clearinghouse through which companies can indirectly share cyber security-related data with the government. After the Sept. 11, 2001, terrorist attacks, the FBI was given legal tools to request “third-party business records” without a court order, as long as it deemed those records “relevant to an investigation.” Many consumer interactions with businesses on the Web produce records that are covered under those provisions and are not protected by the Fourth Amendment requirement of a search warrant. Most security experts said the release of UDIDs did not pose much of a privacy or security risk. It was no more harmful than a list of car VIN numbers, they said. But if AntiSec’s claims are true that the larger file accessed includes names, phone numbers and email addresses, the information could be used to track individuals or lead to identity theft, said Ori Eisen, founder and chief innovation officer of security firm 41st Parameter.

Virginia Tech decision sets high bar for universities
Value of a hard day’s work still deserves recognition Nyles Kendall Arizona Daily Wildcat
Kristina Bui Arizona Daily Wildcat
t’s more than a little ironic that an investigation into whether or not Virginia Tech officials acted in a “timely” fashion in the wake of the 2007 shooting has taken more than five years to complete. Last week, Education Secretary Arne Duncan reinstated a $27,500 fine against Virginia Tech for failing to provide a timely warning to the campus community during the 2007 shooting rampage. Duncan’s reinstatement reversed a ruling by the Education Department’s chief administrative judge, who concluded Virginia Tech did not violate the law and thus overruled a 2010 finding by an office within the department. Under the Clery Act, which was enacted in 1990, universities that participate in federal financial aid programs are required to keep and disclose information about crime on or near campus and issue warnings during potential threats. The shooting in 2007 brought the Virginia Tech administration under investigation and the bureaucracy of university campus security under scrutiny. On April 16, 2007, campus police received a 911 call at 7:15 a.m. about gunshots in a dormitory. Officers arrived at the scene 15 minutes later, where they found one student dead and another critically injured. Top administrators sent a campuswide email at 9:26 a.m. warning students and employees about a “shooting incident.” The email read, “The university community is urged to be cautious and asked to contact Virginia Tech Police if you observe anything suspicious.” Minutes after the email was sent, the same man in the dormitory opened fire again, this time in an academic building, where he killed 30 more students and professors, and himself. Duncan’s Friday decision is the latest to come in a years-long investigation. Federal officials first determined the university had violated the Clery Act in December 2010, saying the warning at 9:26 a.m. came too late and was too vague. The university appealed that finding, and an administrative judge for the department overturned it, saying that federal guidelines on timely warnings are unclear. An advocacy group representing survivors and victims of the shooting pushed for another appeal, and the decision came up to the secretary, who acknowledged that federal law does not define what a “timely warning is,” but also said the email that went out two hours after the first shooting was too late. He also cited as evidence that administrators perceived an ongoing threat by referring to the lockdowns of campus facilities (one at 8 a.m. and one shortly after 9 a.m.), and the cancellation of trash pickups. That perception, his decision argued, suggested the administration’s warning could have been more urgent. Virginia Tech officials immediately suggested that the university would appeal Duncan’s decision. Such an appeal would mark the first time a Clery Act investigation had gone out of the Department of Education and into federal court. But it’s time to put the case to rest. Yet another appeal drags the investigation out further, prolonging a question that has already been answered on three separate occasions. Rather than once again re-examine the Virginia Tech administration’s missteps (or argue that missteps weren’t made at all), move on. Rather than get tangled up in bureaucracy, Virginia Tech and other college administrations can treat Duncan’s decision for what it is: a bar by which to measure campus safety and build a safer future for university communities. In the wake of tragedy, it is important to reflect on past events in order to figure out how to move forward. But eventually, and certainly five years down the line, you have to actually move forward. — Kristina Bui is the editor-in-chief of the Arizona Daily Wildcat.

hile kicking back with friends and family this past Monday, did you actually take the time to contemplate the significance of Labor Day? If you didn’t, you’re probably not the only one. For many, Labor Day is everything but laborious, and taking the time to appreciate its meaning has become too difficult a task amid a weekend full of rest and celebration. Some would even argue that Labor Day, a holiday meant to commemorate the achievements of workers, has become an excuse for drunken frivolity and plain laziness. Gina Rinehart, the controversial Australian mining tycoon, is among the few who take umbrage with the state of work ethic today. In a column for the Australian Resources and Investment magazine, the multi-billion dollar heiress told Australia’s plebeians to “spend less time drinking or smoking and socializing and more time working.” “If you’re jealous of those with more money, don’t just sit there and complain. Do something to make more money yourself,” rails the richest woman in the
world, clearly taking a jab at the founding principles of the Occupy movement and similar movements. In an age when the value of a hard day’s work is rapidly declining and thousands take to the streets to protest the excesses of the richest one percent, Rinehart’s comments couldn’t be more salient. This privileged iron-mining queen fails to realize that the men and women who earn a living by the sweat of their brows are working harder than ever and earning less over a lifetime. The productivity of the middle-class American worker has skyrocketed over the past three decades, but all this backbreaking toil hasn’t translated into higher earnings. In fact, the ones who have benefitted the most from this increase in output are those who were already well off to begin with. During this same period of middle-class malaise, corporate profits and the incomes of America’s richest have soared. This brings us back to dear Miss Rinehart. The mogul didn’t actually build her wealth from the bottom up like most of us have to, but inherited a significant
portion of it — $75 million, to be exact — after the passing of her father. Then to add insult to injury, in her column Rinehart lavishes praise onto those millionaires and billionaires like herself who are best equipped to “invest in other countries” and “help our poor and our young.” But it’s these self-seeking millionaires and billionaires who have perpetuated the dismal state of workers by deregulating the financial sector and dumping their corporate profits into tax havens while busting workers’ unions and balking at the slightest increase in the federal minimum wage. It’s easy for someone born into abundant wealth to scold the masses for not working hard enough to acquire their own riches. Those of us who slog it out every day to put food on the table and maintain a decent standard of living will just have to turn a deaf ear to the fat cats who have the audacity to tell us we’re lazy. So next Labor Day, while you partake in a barbecue feast or just lounge around in your pajamas, remember that Labor Day is a holiday meant to honor the sacrifices and achievements you’ve made as a worker. Despite the ramblings you’ll hear to the contrary, you deserve that day of respite now more than ever. — Nyles Kendall is a political science senior.

Your views In response to “Tau Kappa Epsilon officially unrecognized” (Aug. 30): This is just the Dean of Students showing his dictatorial powers and not looking at reason and true justice. Its amazing that the first decision that came to Keith Humphrey’s head was to destroy instead of helping and rebuilding. There are so many more routes to take to keep Greek Life healthy and safe, merely just ignoring it by throwing Greek Life away does not solve anything but just start a never ending pattern. Education is the key to success and the Dean refuses to use that in the Greek Life community. — GreekLifeForLife But you can’t hold a whole fraternity responsible for the behavior of a few, sick twisted individuals. For if you do, then shouldn’t we blame the whole fraternity system? And if the whole fraternity system is guilty, then isn’t this an indictment of our educational institutions in general? I put it to you, Greg — isn’t this an indictment of our entire American society? Well, you can do whatever you want to us, but we’re not going to sit here and listen to you bad-mouth the United States of America. Gentlemen! — Joe Settles I’m sure if any of the students in this chapter would like to transfer to a superior educational institution, the members of the Beta-Xi TKE chapter at Arizona State will welcome them with open arms. In all seriousness, why is the administration at Arizona schools — all of them — so opposed to Greek Life? It’s clear they just don’t get it. — EJ
In reponse to “UA affliates argue for Chick-fil-A, cite First Amendment” (Aug. 30): I’m ok with Chick-fil-a having their views. Their business has a right to fund whatever organizations they see fit. For every Chick-fil-A that doesn’t support gay rights, there are 20 that do. But we lean towards dangerous territory when we act to remove those businesses and/or individuals from our society when they support ideas that are different from ours, especially if their ideas are communicated peacefully. Christian, Muslim, Catholic, gay, straight, black, white, all have a place in our community, all have the freedom to support whatever beliefs they feel. Sometimes these beliefs conflict with other beliefs. When this happens, the end goal isn’t to forcibly remove those that feel differently. The challenge in life, especially in this country where such freedoms are protected, is to find a way to co-exist with others that are different. — Kirk Sibley How has the Chick-fil-A in the union violated any non-discrimination policies? Someone is quoted as saying this in the article. People need to realize that voicing an opinion is not the same as conducting your business in a discriminatory manner. From what I can tell, no rights have been violated. Last sentence of the article. I fully support Chick-fil-A’s freedom to donate their proceeds to whatever organizations they’d like to. I also support students’ freedom to conduct business with organizations that they feel comfortable with. — Daniel Harms Wait, so there are college students who don’t understand the First Amendment and think they can censor any thought they don’t agree with? I’m shocked, shocked I tell you! Read the Constitution! — Kevin Wos

Police Beat YAZMINE MOORE Arizona Daily Wildcat
Party hard, puke hard
A University of Arizona Police Department officer found two highly intoxicated women on the east side of the Learning Services Building at 12:46 a.m. on Aug. 24. The officer requested backup. When the second officer arrived, one of the women was lying on the floor in front of a window. She was curled up into the fetal position and there was fresh vomit on the ground next to her. The subject continued to fall in and out of consciousness while answering the officer’s questions. Before passing out, she gave the officer her driver’s license and aimlessly talked about her father being a former chief of police in California. The UAPD officer called the Tucson Fire Department to the scene. The woman’s eyes were red and watery, her speech was slurred, she smelled of alcohol and she was continuously vomiting. Moments later, TFD and the student EMT crew arrived to assist the situation. She was taken to the University of Arizona Medical Center for evaluation. The second woman was later taken back to Coronado Residence Hall. The UAPD officer went to UAMC later and attempted to talk with the intoxicated woman but she was asleep.
You can’t hide the evidence
An 18-year-old woman was arrested for a Minor in Possession at 1:50 a.m. on Aug. 24 at the Phi Gamma Delta fraternity house. Two UAPD officers saw the woman standing outside Fiji, holding a vodka bottle. As the two officers approached the woman, she tried to get rid of the 1.75 liter bottle of Gran Legacy by hiding it behind a large pillar. The officers asked her to come to their patrol vehicle for questioning. She did so and answered their questions after being read her Miranda Rights. She said that she had been at a party at Sigma Chi and that was where she got the vodka. While at the party she had a couple of shots. After questioning, she was escorted to Arizona-Sonora Residence Hall.
Swiper ordered to stay away
A 29-year-old man was arrested for shoplifting and possession of narcotic paraphernalia at 9:49 a.m. on Aug. 24. A UofA Bookstore employee called UAPD after witnessing the subject shoplift. The man had allegedly placed some sale items into a dark blue backpack before leaving the bookstore. The bookstore employee followed the subject so that he could detain him until the officers arrived, but the man would not stop and continued to run eastbound from the store. Eventually he stopped behind the Education building. The man admitted to shoplifting and told the officers that it was a stupid decision. The man claimed he was on pre-trial release for narcotic possession and has been cooped up at home, not using drugs for the past few weeks. Officers then noticed a fresh injection mark on the man’s left inner forearm and he then admitted to injecting heroin within the past week. The shoplifted items were found in his backpack, described by the bookstore employee, along with narcotic paraphernalia. All items were placed into evidence. Before citing and releasing the man, officers found that he had 39 previous contacts with UAPD. He had been arrested for narcotic possession and paraphernalia, shoplifting and trespass/warning. Based on his history, the man was issued an exclusionary order.

In Pop Warner leagues and high school football, the young players typically play both offense and defense. It’s not as common of a practice in college football, although there still are some teams around the country that employ the two-way player strategy. Taimi Tutogi, a 6-foot-1, 260-pound fullback who has returned kicks, will also see some snaps at the defensive end. The Wildcats moved multiple players across the line of scrimmage to protect an already thin defensive unit. “We [asked Tutogi to play defense] in the spring a little bit with some one-on-one pass rush drills so we

The opposite On the Roster Shaquillah Torres, sophomore, 6-foot-1 Alyse Hensley, junior, 6-foot-3 Kendall Walwick, freshman, 6-foot The opposite is arguably one of the most underappreciated positions on the court. Often known as the weak side hitter, the opposite is generally a utility player. In other words, she is athletic and adequate at all the required skills but does not necessarily specialize in one skill more than others.
Home base for the position is the front right area of the court. The rotation of the players is set up so that the player is always opposite the setter, hence the name. “At the opposite on any team you have to have a player who can attack the ball,” head coach Dave Rubio said. “If that is missing your offense becomes very one-sided. I need someone who has a scoring ability but also the ability to defend and block.” As the third position on the net, the opposite is expected to be an effective hitter, passer, server and blocker. If the setter is on defense and cannot participate offensively on the second touch, it is the opposite’s duty to step in as the setter for the play. “Based on the goals of the team,
“I think he’s a guy the NFL will look at. He’s got to have a good year. They want to see it on tape. He’s got the size, the strength, he’s got ball skills, and he’s got good feet. He’s a guy that they’ve been on campus looking at and they should. I’m hoping he’ll have a pretty good year, and he’s off to a pretty good start.” — Arizona head coach Rich Rodriguez on Tutogi’s NFL prospects
it’s important also to have someone who is as low-error as possible both defensively and offensively,” Rubio said. Due to the positioning of the setter on the court, the opposite usually will hit a back set where the setter sets the ball behind her. The opposite is expected to be a good enough hitter to get through the best blockers on the opposing team, the outside hitter and middle blocker. As a blocker, the opposite has to be able to put up defense on the net against the opposing team’s best hitter, the outside. A strong opposite can easily upset the opponent’s offense by LARRY HOGAN/Arizona Daily Wildcat tempering the strength of the SHAQUILLAH TORRES (NO.22) is splitting time as a starting opposite with Alyse Hensley. other team’s outside hitter.

Arizona soccer team hits the road The road less traveled In looking at the last three years, the Wildcats replaced one home game opportunity with an away game each season. In looking at the 2009 and 2010 seasons all but one of the team’s wins came from home games. In 2009, Arizona had 11 home games, but only captured two wins with a total of three for the season. In 2010, the Wildcats had an evenly split season with 10 games at home and 10 games on the road. The team improved with four wins at home with a total of five for the season. Last season with nine opportunities to play teams at home, their only win for the season came from defeating Oregon on Wildcat turf by a score of 1-0.
Looking ahead The Wildcats have at least nine games, out of 16 remaining, on the road. If Arizona earns a berth in the NCAA tournament, that number will increase.
Up next Who: Pepperdine When: Friday, 7 p.m. Where: Tempe, Ariz.
IMAN HAMDAN Arizona Daily Wildcat
This season, the Arizona soccer team will spend a lot of time on the road, as only seven of its 16 games will be played in Tucson. Arizona has shown it is capable of winning on the road, as the Wildcats have already captured two road victories, surpassing the number of road wins for the past three seasons in just four games. “There are certain things you just don’t have control over, whether it be pre-set schedules for the conference or returns you had to make,” head coach Lisa Oyen said. “However, with having games nearby, like in Flagstaff — which is four hours away — and Tempe — which is an hour and a half away — even though we have to travel more, it’s not extensive travel all over the country. To have those away games near home, it’s more manageable.” Arizona has already completed its longest road trip this season when it traveled to Omaha and defeated Creighton on Sunday. Still remaining on the Wildcats’ travel schedule are Tempe, California, Washington and Oregon. The upside to the team’s schedule is every other weekend they will be on home turf. For junior mid-fielder Ana-Maria Montoya, traveling is just another part of being a collegiate soccer player. “I am used to traveling and being on the go,” Montoya said. “Personally it’s not a huge factor for me, but obviously playing at home is such an advantage and so much fun. I feel

Rodriguez aims to build momentum CAMERON MOON Arizona Daily Wildcat
OKLAHOMA STATE’S Joseph Randle is one of the top running backs in the country, and will likely trouble the UA defense.
from Tucson Electric Power
Arizona’s schedule this year has Oklahoma State sandwiched between what are supposed to be “cupcake” games against Toledo and South Carolina State. The Cowboys are a top-25 team that boasts one of the most productive offenses in the country, as evidenced by the 84 points it put up against Savannah State in week one. Although Saturday night’s game will be a challenge in all aspects, Arizona head coach Rich Rodriguez said he doesn’t mind the timing of the game, when other coaches may have lobbied to play a highly ranked opponent after South Carolina State. “You’re going to play them when you play them,” Rodriguez said after Tuesday’s practice. “I haven’t thought about it that
much. A lot of times it’s your opening opponent and if you have a young team coming in, you don’t want to play a top-10 or top-20 ranked team in your opener — but if you’re going to play them, you might as well play them when you’re relatively healthy.” Not to say the Wildcats are relatively healthy, with eight players named on last week’s injury report, plus left guards Chris Putton and Cayman Bundage leaving Saturday’s game due to injuries, but Rodriguez said Arizona is not in too bad of a shape. If the Wildcats can pull off the upset, Rodriguez and his team can use this game as a momentum builder before next week and the start of their conference

Away Games from page 7
like as a team we cannot allow it to affect us.” As for missing class and constantly being away from home, each player is held accountable. “A big part of being a student athlete is learning a lot of time management and scheduling your classes around your soccer schedule,” junior midfielder Shannon Heinzler said. “Also not saving everything for the last minute because otherwise you will be cramming the night before and not getting enough sleep. So not only are you not prepared for your test, but you’re not prepared for the game either.” Homework becomes a priority for these student athletes, so the team also works together to make things easier. As freshmen struggle through general education classes, the juniors and seniors lend a helping hand with class work. When the girls are struggling with biology or chemistry they turn to science guru and senior defender Alex Smith, Heinzler said. Beyond the academic side of things, the team acts as a family unit for one another, from taking pictures to having “Call Me Maybe” sing and danceoffs. So, even if they are away from home, they never actually feel homesick.

than usual and have to relearn the defensive terminology that comes with the position. “It’s tough, because on offense you have to know a lot of plays and take tests the night before a game,” Tutogi said. “Defense is the same amount. It’s hard because these guys are just focused on defensive stuff, but when I’m in the hotel, I have to look at offense and defense. It’s a fair amount, but it’s nothing I can’t handle and nothing I can’t take in.” Despite the workload he already has as a power runner and blocker in the Wildcats’ spread offense, Tutogi has welcomed the change to defensive end. “Offense is my main role but defense is fun,” Tutogi said Monday. “Knowing my role and just coming off the edge and trying to kill the quarterback is fun. I just have to put some pressure on him.”
Football notes from page 8
schedule, like his 2002 West Virginia team did in a night game against Cincinnati in his second year as head coach. “At that point, we hadn’t won a road game, and we won kind of in the last second, and that gave us some momentum,” Rodriguez said. “This one here, I don’t want us to have any regrets from the standpoint of knowing we could have prepared better or played better, because you don’t have this opportunity to play a ranked team at home at night in a great atmosphere. We have to make the most of it.”
Buckner is OK with trash talk
Senior receiver Dan Buckner, a former Texas Longhorn who transferred to Arizona following his sophomore season, is quite familiar with Oklahoma State. After all, this will be his fifth time playing the Cowboys, including two lopsided losses the last two seasons as a Wildcat. This week, Buckner, who is coming off a 10 reception and 116-yard performance against Toledo addressed the potential for trash talk on the field, especially after the way Arizona has been dismantled by the Cowboys the last two seasons, 73-24. “I don’t really get flustered in games, when they’re talking to me I’m cool to talk,” Buckner said. “I’m a happy-go-lucky person. I laugh at things like that. When people talk trash, I laugh at them.
In Saturday’s 24-17 overtime win against Toledo, Tutogi didn’t see the ball much on offense, as he had only one carry. He was stuffed at the line and lost a yard on fourth down early in the fourth quarter. He made more of a presence on defense, recovering a fumble. He spent the entire overtime period at defensive end, which, according to Rodriguez, was part of the team’s plan. “He played 17 or 18 snaps [on defense] which is what we thought — somewhere around 20,” Rodriguez said. “I think he made a nice impact. He’s one of our better pass rushers. He’s got a good motor.” That motor, a quality Arizona coaches love to see in their players, didn’t stop Tutogi from feeling fatigued during the waning moments of overtime, but said he was ecstatic to still be on the field at the end of the game. “There’s never a better feeling than being able to be out there and get the win, ending with you on the field,” he said.
What can you do if people are talking trash and you laugh at them? There’s nothing you can say, so I’m just going to have a smile on my face and play my game.” In addition to that, Buckner recognized the importance of playing the Cowboys at home for the first time. The 2010 Alamo Bowl was held in San Antonio, Texas and last year’s contest was at Oklahoma State. “Being at home with the crazy Zona Zoo is definitely going to help,” Buckner said. “They’re crazy. They’re loud, they’re going to scream, it’s definitely going to help us and be big for us on third down and things like that. As a team, we just have to come out firing, guns blazing so that way we can keep our crowd into it the whole game.”
No touchdowns for Quinn
In one of the final scrimmages of fall camp, dubbed the first annual “Beanie Bowl,” center Kyle Quinn did something a little bit out of his comfort zone. Running an option play that featured a pitch to senior receiver Terrence Miller, Quinn ran behind Miller, stole the ball and rumbled down the field for a long touchdown to close the scrimmage. When asked if there might be a repeat of his touchdown run on Saturday, Quinn said he’ll just be sticking to his usual job description. “I highly doubt it,” Quinn said, laughing. “I’ll let Terrence catch the ball. I’ll just block for him next time that happens.”
LANCE BRIGGS (NO. 55) was a linebacker at Arizona from 1999-2002 and recorded 308 tackles, 10.5 sacks, and 36 tackles for loss.
Former UA linebacker Lance Briggs still has passion for the game MCCLATHCY TRIBUNE
Bears LB Lance Briggs, 31, still has a passion for the game. “I love being on the field,” he said. (Brian Brian Urlacher may play on opening day. He may not. He may run like the Urlacher of old. He may not. The uncertainty of Urlacher’s situation makes the certainty of Lance Briggs’ situation all the more comforting. Briggs, a linebacker at the UA from 1999-2002, answered the bell consistently in training camp, turning down opportunities for days off. “I love being on the field,” Briggs said. “I don’t want to miss any of it.” The Bears’ appreciation for Briggs was evident when they extended his contract through 2014 in the offseason, giving him another $7 million in guaranteed money. Briggs’ appreciation for the Bears is evident by the way he has been approaching his job at 31. “Lance Briggs never has been into football as much as he is now,” Bears coach Lovie Smith said. Briggs never was close to being a first in, last out guy. He has been reputed to be an athlete who liked to wear the party hat. He often let his weight go in the offseason. This offseason, he spent four weeks in Raleigh, N.C., to train at North Carolina State. Briggs was following strength coach Corey Edmond from Arizona, where Briggs had worked with him previously. “His workouts are not easy at all,” Briggs said. “They can be punishing. He forces you to work. I love it.” Briggs has been hanging around Halas Hall a bit longer these days. He is paying closer attention to details and taking more pride in the mundane aspects of his job. His focus is sharp. He competes in practice, running out plays like a young guy trying to prove himself. What changed? “Back when I was young, it seemed like there was no end in sight,” Briggs said. “When there is an end in sight, you value every day more than before. When I was young, I wanted to get in, practice, get out. Now, I want to get in, enjoy practice, take more from it, more than I did before. “The reality has hit that you can’t play this game forever. I’m not taking anything for granted, that’s all. A lot of people take a lot of things for granted, and when it’s over there are a lot of things they wish they would have changed. So I’m enjoying every day, every
moment.” Time has a funny way of bringing focus to an athlete. Briggs talks about teammates and friends he has seen come and go. He misses Tommie Harris. Adewale Ogunleye, too. And Anthony Adams. Olin Kreutz, even. He enjoyed catching up with Rex Grossman when the Bears and Redskins played in the preseason. They came to the Bears in the same 2003 draft class way back when. How could all those teammates be gone so quickly? Briggs has been around long enough to start thinking about his legacy. And it is a pretty impressive one. He has been to seven Pro Bowls in nine seasons. He has led the Bears in tackles four years, including in 2011, and finished second to Urlacher four times. “It’s important how my peers, friends, family and hopefully the fans in Chicago and around America remember me,” Briggs said. “I just want to be remembered as someone who loved to play the game.” Briggs still is creating memories. Just because he has been a Bear longer than every player on the team except Patrick Mannelly, Urlacher and Charles Tillman does not necessarily mean he is nearing the end. Front office men who have studied him say his burst and quickness still are exceptional. “He is really in-tune to what’s going on,” Bears center Roberto Garza said. “This was one of the best camps he has had since I’ve been here (2005). He knew exactly where to be and how to get there. You can tell all his experience makes him at a different level.” The argument can be made that Briggs, who has been overlooked at times while playing next to Urlacher, never has been more important to the Bears defense. Briggs believes his value will not fluctuate based on Urlacher’s situation. But someone will have to fill production and leadership voids if Urlacher can’t. Briggs simply plans to be himself. “In terms of leadership, I’m still going to be the same guy,” he said. “My job is not to be somebody else; it’s to be who I am.” Part of that is being a player who is available. He never has missed more than two games in a season. Probably more than ever, the Bears appreciate that durability.

‘Cocaine godmother’ gunned down MCCLATCHY TRIBUNE
MAYOR JULIAN CASTRO of San Antonio, Texas, speaks at the 2012 Democratic National Convention at the Time Warner Cable Arena in Charlotte, NC.
Democrats key in on women, Latino voters MCCLATCHY TRIBUNE
CHARLOTTE, N.C. — Day one of the Democratic convention made clear that the two parties agree on one thing: Women and Latinos will determine the outcome of the 2012 election. But from Ann Romney’s speech in Tampa a week ago, through Sen. Marco Rubio’s address on the GOP’s closing night, Republicans focused repeatedly on trying to limit President Barack Obama’s lead among those two groups. They sought to accomplish that goal by focusing heavily on general themes of opportunity and enterprise, almost to the exclusion of specific policy proposals. By contrast, the challenge for Democrats is to convince those voters that Obama’s presidency has made their lives better despite the poor economy. As the party’s
speakers demonstrated in the opening night, they plan to spend their convention focusing intensively on policy specifics — including an unexpectedly strong emphasis on Obama’s health care law. The convention’s keynote speaker, Julian Castro, the mayor of San Antonio, summarized the contrast between the parties this way: At the Republican convention, he said, “they told a few stories of individual success. We all celebrate individual success. But the question is, how do we multiply that success?” The traditional Democratic answer to that question has been that government programs can help people climb the economic ladder. The problem the party has faced—in the mid-term election of 2010 and continuing into the current contest — is that a prolonged poor economy under a Democratic president has undermined voters’ willingness to accept that argument.
White, male voters, particularly those without a college education, have become especially disillusioned with the efficacy of government, polls show. Many see government programs as providing benefits to people other than them. With those voters tilting heavily toward Republican nominee Mitt Romney and black voters overwhelmingly siding with Obama, Latinos and white women have become the primary targets of both campaigns. Romney campaign officials estimate that they will need at least three-in-five white voters to win in November. So far, Romney’s lagging support among women has kept him short of that goal. Democrats not only need to hold the support of about two-thirds of Latinos, a level they have hit in several recent polls, but also must achieve a turnout similar to the level of 2008, something still very much in doubt.
MEDELLIN, Colombia — Griselda Blanco’s story was often told in numbers: She turned tricks at 14, and moved 300 kilos of cocaine a month in her 40s. Known as the godmother of the cocaine racket, she had up to 20 aliases, and unsubstantiated lore said she ordered some 250 murders. Police put it closer to 40. She died Monday at 69 at the Cardiso butcher shop on 29th Street in a Medellin neighborhood, where the former “madrina” was gunned down after a life of drugs and murder. Her last act on earth was buying $150 worth of meat. The cocaine trade pioneer, who made her mark by bloodying Miami’s streets, died the same way she was arrested in 1985: with a Bible on her chest. It was a predictable end to a life marred by violence, prison and impunity — a legacy nearly forgotten until filmmakers made her notorious. At least three feature films and an HBO series featuring Blanco were in the works at the time of her death. “She found religion in later years,” said her former lover Charles Cosby, who expects to start shooting a film early next year called “Hustle,” about his relationship with Blanco. “At the same time, you can’t bring a Bible to a gunfight.” On Monday afternoon, a middle-age man climbed off the back of a motorbike outside a butcher shop in a quiet Medellin suburb, entered, pulled out a gun and shot Blanco twice in the head before calmly walking back to his bike and disappearing into the city. As the woman lay dying on the ground, her pregnant daughterin-law, who had been waiting in the car, lay a Bible on her chest. No one who witnessed the attack knew until later that the victim was one of the most violent and powerful drug traffickers in Miami’s history. According to a witness interviewed by The Miami Herald, the killer was a man in his 40s or 50s who was calm and composed throughout the attack. “He was a professional,” the witness said. “It was vengeance from the past.”
