Female rock artist returns to Tucson Melissa Etheridge to launch UApresents’ upcoming season at Centennial Hall show Galina Swords

C

losely following the release of her 15th studio record, Melissa Etheridge will make a Tucson stop this weekend at the UA’s Centennial Hall. The Grammy-winning songstress and LGBTQ activist will kick off the season for UApresents at 8 p.m. on Saturday. Etheridge said she has not visited Tucson since the early ’90s but has very much been looking forward to returning. “I have enjoyed Tucson even before I started touring,” she said. “I have some very fond memories of Tucson.” Etheridge’s first album, which was released in 1988, quickly gained her recognition for its unique bluesy, soulful sound and emotive lyrics. “I always listened to Bruce Springsteen; I love his music,” she said. “And Janis Joplin, her performance and voice definitely influenced me.” Etheridge won her first Grammy Award in 1992, Best Rock Vocal Performance, Female, for the song “Ain’t It Heavy.” Looking back on her success, Etheridge kept her advice for younger musicians

something she planned, Etheridge said she couldn’t keep it out of her songwriting. “I never signed up to be an activist, I just told the truth about myself,” Etheridge said. “That ended up having a huge influence on my music.” Etheridge’s latest effort, 4th Street

Feeling, was released Wednesday. The new record sees Etheridge revisiting her Kansas roots, with the title track referencing a street in her hometown of Leavenworth. Her country and folk origins are evident in the songs “The Shadow of the Black Crow,” with its narrative lyrics, and “Kansas City,” which features the classic hum of harmonicas. “I grew up playing in country bands, so obviously that had something to do with my music,” Etheridge added. Etheridge said she’s looking forward to returning to a city where she used to play venues far smaller than Centennial Hall. “I used to perform in coffee houses in Tucson,” she said. “It’s exciting to be able to finally play a show there.” —Follow Arts reporter Galina Swords @GalinaSwords

Arizona Opera gears up for 2013-2014

erin shanahan

s summer comes to a close, Arizona Opera prepares for its upcoming season. In recent months, Arizona Opera has been finalizing contracts with talent from all over the country. In October, the singers will gather in Tucson to perform “H.M.S. Pinafore,” in which Grammynominated conductor Rob Fisher will make his Arizona Opera debut. Marketing Manager Christine Slomski said she is confident this will be the best season yet. “The performances this year are light, funny and fun,” Slomski said. “As a person in my 20s, I can absolutely relate to the content in these operas.” Opera-goers will get the chance to see five operas in 2013-2014, with “H.M.S. Pinafore followed by “The Flying Dutchman,” “La Bohème,” “La Traviata,” and “Don Pasquale.” UA students will also have the opportunity to buy affordable tickets for the performances during “student rush,” which will make single $20 tickets available at the Tucson Music Hall box office two hours before every performance, said Lori Fisher, Arizona Opera’s

director of education. Students can get the best seats remaining in the house, with a limit of two tickets per CatCard. For Lori Fisher, the most important part of each season is that the performances leave a lasting impression.

“At Arizona Opera, we try very hard to tell compelling stories that will be interesting for years to come,” Lori Fisher said. “In particular, we are aiming to tell stories of importance to our audiences located in Arizona.” The 2013-2014 performance series was built

with newcomers to opera in mind. “H.M.S. Pinafore,” this season’s debut performance, is comedic and will be sung entirely in English. For operas in a foreign language, supertitles will accompany the show to display the English lyrics for the audience. The production team at Arizona Opera is currently developing ideas, finalizing costuming and collaborating with the performers. The stories being told at Arizona Opera this year will be familiar to most members of the public, Lori Fisher said. Their plots may remind the audience of popular movies such as the “Pirates of the Caribbean” series, “Pretty Woman” and “Moulin Rouge,” as well as the beloved television show “I Love Lucy.” The performances scheduled for this season are perfect examples of the Arizona Opera slogan, “Stories worth singing,” Lori Fisher said. “Opera is considered the highest art form,” Lori Fisher said. “It is the ultimate team sport due to the way it combines orchestra music and beautiful singing to tell fantastic stories which can’t be told any other way.” —Follow theater reporter Erin Shanahan @ItsErinShanahan

Light inspires new downtown exhibit COURTESY OF WOMANKRAFT

“womankraft is an amazing opportunity for artists to be represented with professionalism.” — Zoe Rhyne, “Illumination” exhibit organizer

Erin Shanahan

n an effort to maintain its mission to empower women and other underrepresented artists, WomanKraft Art Center will begin hosting its fall show this weekend, beginning with a reception on Saturday. “Illumination” will run through Oct. 26 in the WomanKraft gallery, inside the organization’s early 20thcentury building affectionately dubbed “the Castle.” The building itself helped inspire the exhibit set for this weekend, organizers said. “After looking at the stained glass windows in the Castle, our team decided we wanted to do a show that lights up,” said Zoe Rhyne, who organized Illumination.

All of the shows at WomanKraft are themed, and the artists are given a chance to shine if they can justify how their work fits the theme. Exhibits by the organization are open to a wide variety of media, as long as the work maintains the feeling of the show. “WomanKraft is an amazing opportunity for artists to be represented with professionalism,” Rhyne said. “On the other hand, we deal with our artists with a sense of acceptance and encouragement.” Receptions are held at the WomanKraft Art Center on the first Saturday of every month. The reception for Illumination will be held this Saturday at the Castle from 7 to 10 p.m. Visitors will get a

chance to see all of the artwork represented in the current show, as well as to speak with artists in a casual setting. Drinks and organic and vegetarian refreshments will also be served. After the reception, the exhibit will be open for viewing every week, Wednesday through Saturday from 1 to 5 p.m. Although the exhibit will largely be focused on functional pieces that incorporate the use of light, Director of Exhibits Gale Swanbeck said some artists will be doing more extravagent pieces. All of the pieces in the show will be for sale, and WomanKraft members said they hope to make the art affordable for everyone. In addition to the regular exhibits like Illumination, WomanKraft offers art lessons and workshops at the Castle for aspiring artists who want to hone their skills before putting their work on display.

UA museum aims to engage campus

Casey Knox

n an effort to increase community involvement, Arizona State Museum staff are inviting the public to an open house on Friday from 3 p.m. to 5 p.m. Students from the UA and Pima Community College who attend will be able to learn about the exhibits that the museum has to offer. This fourth annual open house has been publicized with the hope of sparking undergraduate interest in the museum. The open house will give students information regarding research, employment and volunteer opportunities, as faculty and staff are looking to keep interest in the museum strong over the years. “We want to introduce the museum to students who are interested in social sciences or American Indian studies,” said Chuck Adams, curator of archaeology and professor in the School of Anthropology. During the open house, students will be able to visit a variety of labs that may spark their interest in the museum. The faunal lab will be open to give students an idea of how animals and specimens are identified at archaeological sites. A

There are also archaeology labs and a human identification lab for those looking to inquire about research opportunities. The exhibits area and library will also be open to the public. “We want everybody to have a good time and to learn about the museum and want to get involved on some level,” Adams said. “I love to have students visit. I’m a professor; I teach students at the university in the hopes to excite and involve and educate. This is just another opportunity to do this.” Faculty and staff will also attend the event to answer any questions and act as curators for the museum. In addition to free food, the museum will also hold a raffle to give away books, baskets and other gifts. Adams added that he is looking forward to opening his archaeology lab for students during the event, where he will be ready to answer any questions that students have. “Our goal for the museum is to develop more and more interesting and exciting programs that fit the needs of the whole Tucson community — but also the interests of

UNDERGROUND HANGOUTS STORY BY JESSICA SCHreCKER PHOTO BY RYAN REVOCK

W

ith an away game leaving Arizona Stadium deserted this weekend, Friday and Saturday may see an influx of bar-goers and house parties. But there’s more to Tucson than Fourth Avenue and University Boulevard, and some students may find a hike through a dark cave the perfect hangover cure. For students looking for activities beyond the confines of the campus area, Colossal Cave Mountain Park and Kartchner Caverns State Park promise an adventure through what Rich Buherer, lead guide at

Kartchner Caverns, refers to as “a mystical world.” Colossal Cave Mountain Park is 29 miles southeast of campus and spans over 2,000 acres, an area that includes museums, a historic ranch, hiking trails and picnic areas. The main attraction, however, is the cave, said Park Director Martie Meirhauser. “It’s got to be the primary drive,” Meirhauser said of the cave. “It’s something we’re very proud of.” Colossal Cave is ranked as one of the largest dormant caves in the world and the ranch dates back as far as the 1870s, which brings a deeper historic and educational value to the entire park, according to Meirhauser. “We’re on the national register of historic places, the entire

park as a whole, because of the wonderful array of history we have here,” Meirhauser said. In addition to providing daily access to the caves, the park offers tours like the Wild Cave Tour that hold a larger attraction for UA students, Meirhauser said. These tours are physically demanding and require a reservation in advance, but offer the chance to explore unlit, unmarked passageways in Colossal Cave. “Those are really for people who crave more adventure,” Meirhauser added. “Our mission is that everything is educational, one way or another.” Forty miles beyond Colossal Cave Mountain Park is Arizona State Parks-owned Kartchner Caverns. In juxtaposition to the dormant cave

at Colossal Cave Mountain Park, Kartchner Carverns features two underground galleries that are very much alive. “It’s a living cave; you can actually see the moisture on it,” said park visitor Nate Evans, following a tour on Wednesday. “Other places are dead, but this one is actually still growing and living.” Former UA students Gary Tenen and Randy Tufts discovered the caves at Kartchner Caverns in the winter of 1974. The caves remained their best-kept secret until 1988, when the state of Arizona purchased the property and decided to open it to the public. “They wanted to keep it a secret,” said Buhrer. “If they started talking about the secret cave down in

Benson, it wouldn’t be a secret for very long.” According to Buhrer, the two students worked carefully to ensure that as much of the cave was preserved as possible. Almost 40 years later, the caverns remain 80 percent untouched and still have a close relationship with the university. Departments all over campus continue the work started by Tenen and Tufts and continue to make advancements that will prove useful to the entire university. “Students should come and see what other departments at their school are responsible for and be proud of that,” said Assistant Park Manager Brent Smith. “They should take some pride and partial ownership because they’re helping

to preserve, conserve, study, etcetera.” Kartchner Caverns is rated among the world’s top 10 caves for scientific study and is the only living cave that allows public entry., Buhrer said. “The tour guides do a good job of impressing upon you how rare these kinds of caves are,” said park visitor Becky Evans. “It’s a privilege, not a right.” These protective measures allow guests access to a sight that brings in not only the state population, but also visitors from all over the world, Smith said. “It’s one of the jewels in the state park system,” he added. “The colors, the formations that are throughout the cave are pretty spectacular … It appeals across the board.”

The caverns offer tours daily inside two underground galleries, the “Throne Room” and the “Big Room.” Each chamber is over the length of a football field and measures more than 100 feet deep. Both are filled with an array of geological formations, and the Throne Room is home to the largest column in Arizona, which stands at 58 feet tall and is named Kubla Khan. “It’s really well preserved,” said park visitor Karl Holderbein, 23. “It’s not really touristy; it’s very personal.” Buhrer encourages students at the UA to visit the caverns regardless of their area of study, especially with the current generation’s focus on sustainability.

“College students today have a lot more appreciation for the environment than in the past,” Buhrer said. “I think anybody that’s in any type of field of geology by nature will enjoy it and even those in art — that’s natural art. That’s Mother Nature creating those features, and it’s beautiful.” Both parks continue to work to preserve their caves and encourage students in particular to leave their comfort zone and see what lies beyond campus grounds. “It’s okay to leave Fourth Avenue,” Smith said. “There’s a whole world out there to see.”

Don’t go far to catch a flick Gallagher Theater begins twice-weekly film viewings, ‘Man of Steel’ shows this weekend

I

CASEY KNOX

n the midst of a hectic weekend, Arizona Student Unions is looking to make Gallagher Theater a place of relaxation and fun with its spacious seating and wide projector. Welcoming and free to all students at the university, Gallagher Theater will be premiering its first shows this weekend. Gallagher kicked off the year with “The Hangover Part III” on Thursday, and plans to feature many other shows that cater to student interests throughout the year. On Sunday, “Man of Steel” will be playing at 2 p.m. This action-packed movie about Superman stars Henry Cavill and Oscar nominee Amy Adams. Student employees at the university chose to premiere this movie based on its trailer, reviews, ratings and gross income. As a “Sunday Funday” study break, students can head to Gallagher in the Student Union Memorial Center to catch this free flick. “Our focus is to increase student engagement with Arizona Student Unions and make the union a hub for students on campus,” said Allen Womble, engagement coordinator for Arizona Student Unions.

Free screenings for students with CatCards give students a cheap and easy way to become engaged in the programs the student union has to offer. Gallagher wants to give students a fun and relaxing environment to make them feel at home, Womble said. “We’re looking to make this place the living room on campus,” Womble said, adding that the movie showings are meant for all students at the university, from freshmen to nontraditional, older students on campus. In addition to showing movies that have already debuted, Gallagher occasionally gives students the opportunity to see movies before they’re released. Attending the showings is also a good way to become more involved with the university, said Melissa Carreno, student engagement marketing assistant. “I’m really excited and hoping that students can come out and watch the movies we have, considering that they are free,” Carreno said. “We want students to come and enjoy the free movies that we offer at the student unions so they can get more involved with school and participate. We always love seeing new people engaging in this atmosphere.”

‘Getaway’ a thriller with no traction

A

… we listen

THE UA OMBUDS PROGRAM

ALEX GUYTON

number of witty quips could be made about how “Getaway” crashes and burns, that you should get away from “Getaway” or that “Getaway” is running on empty. However, instead of running car puns into the ground, here is some simple advice: Do not spend money on this movie, which consists almost entirely of the two main characters riding in a car. The plot: Thugs kidnap retired race car driver Brent Magna’s (Ethan Hawke, “Training Day”) wife, Leanne (Rebecca Budig). In their ransacked apartment, Brent Magna receives a phone call from a mysterious voice (Jon Voight, “National Treasure”) instructing him to get in a souped-up car, outfitted with cameras inside and out. When Brent Magna obeys, the unknown voice tells him that he will be carrying out various tasks in this car, the man behind the voice watching him all the while. If Brent Magna refuses, his wife will be killed. Along the way, Brent Magna picks up “The Kid” (Selena Gomez, “Spring Breakers”) after she tries to steal the car — which, it turns out, actually belonged to her in the first place. The two form an unlikely duo as they drive around Bulgaria, carrying out the voice’s commands while trying to figure out what its endgame is. While the poster for this movie may lead potential viewers to believe that the main actors in “Getaway” are Hawke and Gomez, the Shelby Mustang Super Snake really deserves the credit. The “tasks” from the voice usually consist of causing wanton destruction, from driving into a park filled with people to eluding police officers. The car is crashed, flipped, swerved, shot at and rammed so many times that the audience becomes immune to the rush that usually comes with a well-done action sequence. Chase scenes are typically used as rising action to break up the monotony of slower scenes; when they’re the entirety of the film, the excitement soon flatlines. Director Courtney Solomon and Director of Photography Yaron Levy use the numerous cameras attached to the inside and outside of the car in shooting and editing the action sequences. It’s more than possible that the cameras were made a part of the story simply so that each scene could be shot from about 10 different angles, providing maximum coverage. The movie switches between the different cameras so haphazardly that it becomes a daunting task just to understand what is happening onscreen. Additionally, some of the camera placements are simply unnecessary, such as the one that randomly offers a vantage point from behind the gear shifter. The one remarkably composed shot in the movie — an almost two-minute long take from the hood of the Mustang as it gives chase to the villain’s van — provides a much-needed quiet moment amid this movie’s cacophony. So much action leaves little room for sustained dialogue throughout the film. The

AFTER DARK FILMS

vast majority of the talking in “Getaway” simply consists of exclamations from the two characters as they experience their umpteenth near-death experience. Gomez tells Hawke that he’s a horrible driver for the 10th time, even though his driving is the only thing keeping them alive; Hawke tells Gomez to put on her seat belt for the fifth time, which shouldn’t be a request he should have to make since they are barreling down crowded city streets at 80 miles per hour and getting shot at by grenade launchers. Clearly, the script is not the film’s strong point. In terms of acting, one can only guess why Hawke is slumming it up by starring in this film. Miraculously, he is able to bring a certain level of honest desperation and feeling to the part. Gomez, however, is another story entirely and constantly struggles to deliver a single convincing line. Even simple, throwaway exclamations — “You’re going to get us killed!” or “Watch out!” — are somehow made cringeworthy by Gomez’s delivery. Unfortunately, her performance isn’t the sole blemish on an otherwise successful production, but rather the latest item on a laundry list of issues. For fast high-end cars, viewers should turn to “The Fast and the Furious” franchise. For an action film set in Europe involving the kidnapping of a loved one, rent “Taken.” To experience what it’s like to be stuck in a bumpy car ride for 94 minutes, a drive through the Grant Road Corridor Improvement is likely more enjoyable than “Getaway.”

Diversify your date night

W

Amy Johnson

ith nearly 14,000 out-of-state students enrolled at the UA, local creative date ideas might not be obvious to everyone. It’s difficult to develop a plan if your only idea of Tucson mainstays are Dirtbag’s and No Anchovies. Still, the city offers plenty of date-worthy locations — the only tricky part is choosing which one is right for the two of you.

If you’re active

Get Air Tucson is everyone’s childhood dream in one large room. An indoor trampoline arena, Get Air boasts over 20,000 square feet of wall-tofloor fun. “Basically, you just kind of jump around for a couple hours and maybe play dodgeball,” said Diego Armenta, a literacy, learning and leadership senior. For a date that’s still active but allows for more one-on-one time, there’s always Mount Lemmon. With plenty of trails, cool air and

hole-in-the wall restaurants, Mount Lemmon is a staple of the Tucson dating scene. After hiking, drive to any of the area’s hidden gems, like Mount Lemmon General Store and Gift Shop or the Mount Lemmon Cookie Cabin. Then, when night starts to fall and the temperature begins to drop, get comfy with a large blanket, watch the sun set and wait for the stars to come out. “I’ve been up [to Mount Lemmon] a lot of times to just watch the sun set,” said Jesus Casillas, an engineering and business sophomore. “That’s always pretty fun.”

If you’re romantic

Casa Vicente, a Spanish restaurant nestled in the heart of downtown Tucson, offers live music and dancing coupled with traditional tapas dishes. Casa Vicente features live guitar playing every night and flamenco performances on Fridays and Saturdays. The restaurant also houses tango lessons every Wednesday night, so you can impress your date with your sense of rhythm or share a laugh as you stumble over each

McKee added. “You both can experience the date together.”

other’s feet. “In Spain, restaurants are really loud and people are talking,” said Meghan McKee, a server and hostess at Casa Vicente. “There’s lots of music, and that’s definitely what our atmosphere is all about.” In addition to the sultry Spanish atmosphere, Casa Vicente also boasts authentic cuisine including tapas, Mediterranean-style dishes of smaller portions, typically served and shared in a group. “Tapas are also [the] kind of dishes that are meant to be shared, so that’s a fun date thing,”

If the two of you are into community service, an afternoon at Ben’s Bells could be the perfect date, said Allison Burnette, a lead instructor of Campus Life and Project FOCUS. Created in honor of Jeanette Mare-Packard and Dean Packard’s son Ben, “Ben’s Bells symbolize kindness and its power in healing,” according to the organization’s website. Drop by the studios at Main Gate or downtown to help paint or work with clay from 10 a.m to 5 p.m., Tuesday through Saturday. If you’re up for a bigger art project, Creative Juice Art Bar on Tanque Verde Road offers a happy hour with drinks, music and painting for those over 21. For a twist on the typical dinner and a movie, check out the Etherton Gallery on Sixth Avenue for great local art, then walk down the street to the Hub Restaurant and Creamery. Nothing is more romantic than sharing a bowl of Thin Mints ice cream in a rustic, dimly lit atmosphere.

! p e e k ar B , y e H Nick Asta Gentle Ben’s

Do you have a favorite drink to make? Probably something simple, like a Jack and Coke. Doesn’t take that much time, pretty common, most people like it. Every bartender has their ace in the hole, you know? But I’ve got to keep that one a secret. How about a least favorite drink? Bloody Mary. Takes way too much time, and you always get an order for a bunch of them when it’s really busy. Plus, usually people order them in the afternoon, so that means you’re at work way too early. Who was your most memorable customer? Not any time recently, but years and years ago there was always this one girl that liked to get up on the bar and have guys take shots off of her. I’ll never forget her. I don’t remember what her name was, but I’ll never forget her.

Does that coincide with the strangest thing you’ve ever seen happen in a bar? That might be number one on the list. If I want to upset you as a bartender, how would I do that? Tap your credit card on the bar, scream for service, wave at me, say, “Hey, hey, hey,” over again. Just be patient. We’ll get to you. That’s our job. How can I make you happy? Just be a normal customer. Know what you want when I come to you. Not asking for an outrageous tip, just a normal tip. And be polite. Just remember: We’re humans, too. What’s a drinking trend you’d like to see disappear? I’m sure tonight and tomorrow night I’ll have a dozen answers to that question, but right now, can’t really think of it.

Undefeated Wildcats travel to Tempe Brian Peel Arizona soccer will put its unblemished start to the 2013 season on the line this weekend when the team travels to Tempe, Ariz., to take on Kansas and Illinois at the Sun Devil Classic. The Wildcats (3-0-1) have had mixed results in ASU’s annual tournament, including splitting their two games in 2012. Still, the Wildcats are off to their best start since 2008, when the team won six of its first eight games of the year. The 2008 team struggled down the stretch, however, losing seven of its final eight contests and finishing with a 9-11-0 record for the season with no postseason appearance. Head coach Tony Amato attributes the hot start in 2013 to the team’s effort. “It all comes down to the girls’ work rate,” Amato said. “They made that their cornerstone and the foundation in what they’re doing. It all stems from their willingness to put in the work, do the right things, have effort in the game and try and be successful. When that is your foundation, you can build off that.” Arizona is fresh off a fruitful two-game stretch from last weekend, when the team produced a 6-0 victory over UC Riverside in

the Wildcats’ home opener before battling then-No. 24 Ohio State to a hard-fought 0-0 tie in Columbus, Ohio. The Wildcats open their weekend at the Sun Devil Classic with Kansas on Friday at 4:30 p.m., going up against a team that has won three of its first four games this season, including a 4-1 rout of Purdue in its most recent contest last Sunday. The Jayhawks

have only allowed two goals thus far and have scored eight of their own, led by senior forward Caroline Kastor. She leads the team with two goals and a pair of assists. Sunday’s game against Illinois at 11:30 a.m. pits Arizona’s stout defense against Illinois’ high-octane offense. The Illini (3-1-0) are currently tied for second in the country in goals scored with 17 at an average of 4.25 per

volleyball

Arizona gets chance to improve Derek Evans Arizona indoor volleyball will look to bounce back this weekend after ending the last on a sour note. The Wildcats won their first two matches to start the season but blew their first big opportunity against Kansas, losing 2-1. This weekend won’t be easy for Arizona, as the team will start Friday at 7 p.m. against Butler, who is undefeated, 4-0. Junior outside hitter Belle Obert leads Butler with 52 kills. Next, the Wildcats take on Eastern Kentucky — which, just like Butler, is undefeated at 4-0 — on Saturday at 10:30 a.m. The Colonels are led by senior outside hitter Ashley Edmond, who has a team high 65 kills, and junior defensive specialist Dena Ott, who leads the team with 75 digs. Arizona will finish the tournament with a match against Utah Valley at 7 p.m. on Saturday. UVU appears to be the easiest match on the schedule for the Wildcats, as it is only 1-3 on the season. Head coach Dave Rubio said he doesn’t think the team is quite where it needs to be. “We haven’t looked as I’d like us to look,” Rubio said. “At this early stage of the season, I think that the things we’re trying to accomplish haven’t been lost, but I think we’re just not nearly as engaged in what I think we need to

do.” Energy and communication are important in volleyball, and the team’s levels aren’t where they need to be, he added. However, yesterday’s practice was better. “Sometimes we come in and we’re a little flat, not as intense as we need to be,” Rubio said. Rubio said he knows the team is in for a tough challenge this weekend. “I’ve been looking at Butler’s film, and they’re good — they’re really good,” he said. “They’re old, they have talent, and that’s always a dangerous combination.” Arizona junior libero Ronni Lewis said she has a positive outlook on the season start. “I think we’re on the right track,” Lewis said. “Obviously it was a tough loss, but you have to lose in order to gain some experience, and I think that opened our eyes as a whole [team].” As a libero, Lewis’s specialty is defense. “Defense goes in hand with blocking, and we’ve been working really hard on blocking,” he said. “If our block can be solid, then defense behind is pretty easy. I think we’re pretty competitive in that aspect of the game.” This weekend’s performance could act as an indicator of where the team is at, compared to where the team wants and needs to be. — Follow Derek Evans @DerekEvans20

game. After a tough start to the season, when Illinois lost 4-1 on the road to then-No. 10 Notre Dame, the team has played well, winning its last three games with a minimum of five goals scored in each. Junior forward Jannelle Flaws already has five goals to her credit this season, a year after missing all of 2012 with a leg injury. Flaws won Big Ten Offensive Player of the Week last week. “I told the team, ‘It doesn’t get any easier,’” Amato said. “Kansas is a very good team, and so is Illinois. They are two teams that consistently make the NCAA tournament, so it’s another great test for us.” If the Wildcats want to keep their unbeaten start in 2013 going past this weekend, the defense will have to continue to be stellar, and it all starts with junior goalkeeper Gabby Kaufman, who was named Pac-12 Defensive Player of the Week on Tuesday after helping shut out UC Riverside and Ohio State. “It’s a big honor, especially for this program,” Kaufman said, “but at the end of the day, as a whole defensive unit, we just had a great couple of games. Everybody did their part, and I think it really should go to the whole unit. I’m really proud of the way we played.” — Follow Brian Peel @BrianPeel91

supposed to do and they have less points than us, then we’re good.” On offense, Arizona’s spread option shouldn’t have too much of a problem scoring. The Rebels gave up an average of 36 points in 2012, but with nine returning starters on defense, they should be more comfortable with defensive coordinator Tim Hauck’s 4-3 system. Arizona’s all-American junior running back, Ka’Deem Carey, will return against UNLV after being suspended by Rodriguez for the first game. That being said, Rodriguez announced Wednesday that senior running back Daniel Jenkins will get the start on Saturday. Quarterback senior B.J. Denker will make his third career and second consecutive start. Rodriguez also said that backup redshirt freshman Javelle Allen had a great week of practice and could see playing time this week — if Denker struggles or the Wildcats have a commanding lead at the end of the game. Rodriguez did not allow the media to interview players after Tuesday’s practice, but Bondurant said it was an abberation. “It was just one of those practices. They happen,” Bondurant said. “But he told us what we needed to work on. And we had our team meeting before practice and made up for it [Thursday in practice], and we know we just got to turn it up.” — Follow Luke Della @LukeDellaDW

FOOTBALL

High rolling in Sin City LUKE DELLA Head coach Rich Rodriguez began Wednesday’s practice with a 30-minute team meeting. Though the Wildcats are coming off a 35-0 victory over NAU last Friday, the second-year Wildcats football coach wasn’t too pleased with their effort in practice on Tuesday. UNLV (0-1) might have lost at home to NAU 17-14 last season and might be expected to finish near the bottom of the Mountain West Conference this season, but the Rebels are still a large, physical team that matches up well with Arizona (1-0). “Our focus needed to be on correcting some things after practice [Tuesday],” Rodriguez said after practice on Wednesday. “I don’t have too many team meetings, though.” Rodriguez, who usually leaves long team meetings to his position coaches, sat his team down to make sure its focus was where it needed to be. On defense, it will be on stopping UNLV running back Tim Cornett. The Rebels senior was held to just 80 yards on 20 carries last week in UNLV’s 51-23 loss to Minnesota, but the chance that happens two weeks in a row is doubtful. Cornett is just 620 yards shy of passing Mike Thomas as UNLV’s all-time rushing leader with 3,149 yards. “We don’t have anyone in our program like [Cornett],” Rodriguez said, “so not tackling a guy like that is going to be a big concern for us at the beginning of the game.” Arizona’s win over the Lumberjacks last week was the second shutout by the Wildcats’ defense in two years. In the last 20 years, Arizona’s defense has only shut out six opponents, including the two most recent. 7:30 p.m @ Sam Boyd Stadium TV: CBS Sports Network Radio: 1290 AM, Sirius 94, XM 192 Weather: 10 percent chance of rain, wind: NE at 5 mph UA-UNLV Series History All-Time: Arizona leads 1-0 First Meeting: 2001 (Arizona 38, UNLV 21 at

rizona football is set to take on the UNLV Rebels on Saturday, and it’s worth learning some MEGAN COGHLAN facts, not just about the competition, but the school and its tradition as well. UNLV football had its first game against St. Mary’s in 1968, under head coach Bill Ireland. The Rebels won 27-20 and UNLV is now an FBS school in the Mountain West Conference. They play at Sam Boyd Stadium, which was built in 1971 and seats 36,800. UNLV football is currently led by head coach Bobby Hauck, in his fourth year. The major source of competition the Rebels have to offer is senior running back Tim Cornett, whose 2012 record of 1,232 yards still falls short of Arizona running back Ka’Deem Carey’s record 1,929 yards. Sophomore quarterback Nick Sherry, a Casa Grande (Calif.) High School alum, impressed last year as freshman starter. Against Minnesota last week, he completed 35 of 50 passing attempts. Without much veteran leadership, the young team will have to play beyond its years. The Rebels’ in-state rival is the Nevada Wolf Pack, which has had more football success than UNLV. Every year, the two schools hold the “Battle of Nevada,” after which the winner takes home the Fremont Cannon, the heaviest and most expensive trophy in college football, according to Nevada’s website. UNLV has won 15 of the 38 rivalry football games since 1969, its last victory coming in 2004. According to fbschedules.com, Arizona will play both Nevada and UNLV in 2014, then the Wolfpack again in 2015. Arizona beat Nevada last year in the New Mexico Bowl. The UNLV colors are scarlet and gray, and date back to the 1950s. The Rebels’ mascot is a nod to the school’s intended uprising against the University of Nevada, Reno, as

UNLV essentially “rebelled” against its northern counterpart. With the campus’ convenient location eight minutes from the Las Vegas strip, it makes sense that the school offers a Bachelor of Science degree in Hospitality Management with a concentration in gaming management, which teaches the mathematics of slot machines, table games and casino marketing. Also offered is a minor in Compulsive Gambling. No, it doesn’t teach students to become compulsive gamblers, but instead educates them on the awareness of addiction and ethical issues in the gaming industry. UNLV’s hotel program in the hospitality management program boasts successful alumni who have moved on to manage some of the well-known resorts on the strip. Cynthia Kiser Murphey, president and chief operating officer of New York-New York and Scott Sibella, president of Mirage both graduated from UNLV. Six UNLV alumni are currently in the NFL, including Eric Wright on the San Francisco 49ers. Former NFL quarterback Randall Cunningham also played for UNLV football and returned to the school to finish his degree after retiring from the NFL. Other recognizable alumni include Food Network star Guy Fieri and ESPN broadcaster Kenny Mayne. — Follow Megan Coghlan @ MeganCoghlan

Female rock artist returns to Tucson Melissa Etheridge to launch UApresents’ upcoming season at Centennial Hall show GALINA SWORDS

losely following the release of her 15th studio record, Melissa Etheridge will make a Tucson stop this weekend at the UA’s Centennial Hall. The Grammy-winning songstress and LGBTQ activist will kick off the season for UApresents at 8 p.m. on Saturday. Etheridge said she has not visited Tucson since the early ’90s but has very much been looking forward to returning. “I have enjoyed Tucson even before I started touring,” she said. “I have some very fond memories of Tucson.” Etheridge’s first album, which was released in 1988, quickly gained her recognition for its unique bluesy, soulful sound and emotive lyrics. “I always listened to Bruce Springsteen; I love his music,” she said. “And Janis Joplin, her performance and voice definitely influenced me.” Etheridge won her first Grammy Award in 1992, Best Rock Vocal Performance, Female, for the song “Ain’t It Heavy.” Looking back on her success, Etheridge kept her advice for younger musicians

Her country and folk origins are evident in the songs “The Shadow of the Black Crow,” with its narrative lyrics, and “Kansas City,” which features the classic hum of harmonicas. “I grew up playing in country bands, so obviously that had something to do with my music,” Etheridge added. Etheridge said she’s looking forward to returning to a city where she used to play venues far smaller than Centennial Hall. “I used to perform in coffee houses in Tucson,” she said. “It’s exciting to be able to finally play a show there.” —Follow Arts reporter Galina Swords @GalinaSwords

Arizona Opera gears up for 2013-2014

ERIN SHANAHAN

s summer comes to a close, Arizona Opera prepares for its upcoming season. In recent months, Arizona Opera has been finalizing contracts with talent from all over the country. In October, the singers will gather in Tucson to perform “H.M.S. Pinafore,” in which Grammynominated conductor Rob Fisher will make his Arizona Opera debut. Marketing Manager Christine Slomski said she is confident this will be the best season yet. “The performances this year are light, funny and fun,” Slomski said. “As a person in my 20s, I can absolutely relate to the content in these operas.” Opera-goers will get the chance to see five operas in 2013-2014, with “H.M.S. Pinafore followed by “The Flying Dutchman,” “La Bohème,” “La Traviata,” and “Don Pasquale.” UA students will also have the opportunity to buy affordable tickets for the performances during “student rush,” which will make single $20 tickets available at the Tucson Music Hall box office two hours before every performance, said Lori Fisher, Arizona Opera’s

“At Arizona Opera, we try very hard to tell compelling stories that will be interesting for years to come,” Lori Fisher said. “In particular, we are aiming to tell stories of importance to our audiences located in Arizona.” The 2013-2014 performance series was built

with newcomers to opera in mind. “H.M.S. Pinafore,” this season’s debut performance, is comedic and will be sung entirely in English. For operas in a foreign language, supertitles will accompany the show to display the English lyrics for the audience. The production team at Arizona Opera is currently developing ideas, finalizing costuming and collaborating with the performers. The stories being told at Arizona Opera this year will be familiar to most members of the public, Lori Fisher said. Their plots may remind the audience of popular movies such as the “Pirates of the Caribbean” series, “Pretty Woman” and “Moulin Rouge,” as well as the beloved television show “I Love Lucy.” The performances scheduled for this season are perfect examples of the Arizona Opera slogan, “Stories worth singing,” Lori Fisher said. “Opera is considered the highest art form,” Lori Fisher said. “It is the ultimate team sport due to the way it combines orchestra music and beautiful singing to tell fantastic stories which can’t be told any other way.” —Follow theater reporter Erin Shanahan @ItsErinShanahan

ERIN SHANAHAN

n an effort to maintain its mission to empower women and other underrepresented artists, WomanKraft Art Center will begin hosting its fall show this weekend, beginning with a reception on Saturday. “Illumination” will run through Oct. 26 in the WomanKraft gallery, inside the organization’s early 20thcentury building affectionately dubbed “the Castle.” The building itself helped inspire the exhibit set for this weekend, organizers said. “After looking at the stained glass windows in the Castle, our team decided we wanted to do a show that lights up,” said Zoe Rhyne, who organized Illumination.

All of the shows at WomanKraft are themed, and the artists are given a chance to shine if they can justify how their work fits the theme. Exhibits by the organization are open to a wide variety of media, as long as the work maintains the feeling of the show. “WomanKraft is an amazing opportunity for artists to be represented with professionalism,” Rhyne said. “On the other hand, we deal with our artists with a sense of acceptance and encouragement.” Receptions are held at the WomanKraft Art Center on the first Saturday of every month. The reception for Illumination will be held this Saturday at the Castle from 7 to 10 p.m. Visitors will get a

All of the pieces in the show will be for sale, and WomanKraft members said they hope to make the art affordable for everyone. In addition to the regular exhibits like Illumination, WomanKraft offers art lessons and workshops at the Castle for aspiring artists who want to hone their skills before putting their work on display.

n an effort to increase community involvement, Arizona State Museum staff are inviting the public to an open house on Friday from 3 p.m. to 5 p.m. Students from the UA and Pima Community College who attend will be able to learn about the exhibits that the museum has to offer. This fourth annual open house has been publicized with the hope of sparking undergraduate interest in the museum. The open house will give students information regarding research, employment and volunteer opportunities, as faculty and staff are looking to keep interest in the museum strong over the years. “We want to introduce the museum to students who are interested in social sciences or American Indian studies,” said Chuck Adams, curator of archaeology and professor in the School of Anthropology. During the open house, students will be able to visit a variety of labs that may spark their interest in the museum. The faunal lab will be open to give students an idea of how animals and specimens are identified at archaeological sites. A

UNDERGROUND HANGOUTS STORY BY JESSICA SCHRECKER PHOTO BY RYAN REVOCK

W

ith an away game leaving Arizona Stadium deserted this weekend, Friday and Saturday may see an influx of bar-goers and house parties. But there’s more to Tucson than Fourth Avenue and University Boulevard, and some students may find a hike through a dark cave the perfect hangover cure. For students looking for activities beyond the confines of the campus area, Colossal Cave Mountain Park and Kartchner Caverns State Park promise an adventure through what Rich Buherer, lead guide at

Kartchner Caverns, refers to as “a mystical world.” Colossal Cave Mountain Park is 29 miles southeast of campus and spans over 2,000 acres, an area that includes museums, a historic ranch, hiking trails and picnic areas. The main attraction, however, is the cave, said Park Director Martie Meirhauser. “It’s got to be the primary drive,” Meirhauser said of the cave. “It’s something we’re very proud of.” Colossal Cave is ranked as one of the largest dormant caves in the world and the ranch dates back as far as the 1870s, which brings a deeper historic and educational value to the entire park, according to Meirhauser. “We’re on the national register of historic places, the entire

park as a whole, because of the wonderful array of history we have here,” Meirhauser said. In addition to providing daily access to the caves, the park offers tours like the Wild Cave Tour that hold a larger attraction for UA students, Meirhauser said. These tours are physically demanding and require a reservation in advance, but offer the chance to explore unlit, unmarked passageways in Colossal Cave. “Those are really for people who crave more adventure,” Meirhauser added. “Our mission is that everything is educational, one way or another.” Forty miles beyond Colossal Cave Mountain Park is Arizona State Parks-owned Kartchner Caverns. In juxtaposition to the dormant cave

at Colossal Cave Mountain Park, Kartchner Carverns features two underground galleries that are very much alive. “It’s a living cave; you can actually see the moisture on it,” said park visitor Nate Evans, following a tour on Wednesday. “Other places are dead, but this one is actually still growing and living.” Former UA students Gary Tenen and Randy Tufts discovered the caves at Kartchner Caverns in the winter of 1974. The caves remained their best-kept secret until 1988, when the state of Arizona purchased the property and decided to open it to the public. “They wanted to keep it a secret,” said Buhrer. “If they started talking about the secret cave down in

Benson, it wouldn’t be a secret for very long.” According to Buhrer, the two students worked carefully to ensure that as much of the cave was preserved as possible. Almost 40 years later, the caverns remain 80 percent untouched and still have a close relationship with the university. Departments all over campus continue the work started by Tenen and Tufts and continue to make advancements that will prove useful to the entire university. “Students should come and see what other departments at their school are responsible for and be proud of that,” said Assistant Park Manager Brent Smith. “They should take some pride and partial ownership because they’re helping

to preserve, conserve, study, etcetera.” Kartchner Caverns is rated among the world’s top 10 caves for scientific study and is the only living cave that allows public entry., Buhrer said. “The tour guides do a good job of impressing upon you how rare these kinds of caves are,” said park visitor Becky Evans. “It’s a privilege, not a right.” These protective measures allow guests access to a sight that brings in not only the state population, but also visitors from all over the world, Smith said. “It’s one of the jewels in the state park system,” he added. “The colors, the formations that are throughout the cave are pretty spectacular … It appeals across the board.”

The caverns offer tours daily inside two underground galleries, the “Throne Room” and the “Big Room.” Each chamber is over the length of a football field and measures more than 100 feet deep. Both are filled with an array of geological formations, and the Throne Room is home to the largest column in Arizona, which stands at 58 feet tall and is named Kubla Khan. “It’s really well preserved,” said park visitor Karl Holderbein, 23. “It’s not really touristy; it’s very personal.” Buhrer encourages students at the UA to visit the caverns regardless of their area of study, especially with the current generation’s focus on sustainability.

“College students today have a lot more appreciation for the environment than in the past,” Buhrer said. “I think anybody that’s in any type of field of geology by nature will enjoy it and even those in art — that’s natural art. That’s Mother Nature creating those features, and it’s beautiful.” Both parks continue to work to preserve their caves and encourage students in particular to leave their comfort zone and see what lies beyond campus grounds. “It’s okay to leave Fourth Avenue,” Smith said. “There’s a whole world out there to see.”

Don’t go far to catch a flick Gallagher Theater begins twice-weekly film viewings, ‘Man of Steel’ shows this weekend

I

CASEY KNOX

n the midst of a hectic weekend, Arizona Student Unions is looking to make Gallagher Theater a place of relaxation and fun with its spacious seating and wide projector. Welcoming and free to all students at the university, Gallagher Theater will be premiering its first shows this weekend. Gallagher kicked off the year with “The Hangover Part III” on Thursday, and plans to feature many other shows that cater to student interests throughout the year. On Sunday, “Man of Steel” will be playing at 2 p.m. This action-packed movie about Superman stars Henry Cavill and Oscar nominee Amy Adams. Student employees at the university chose to premiere this movie based on its trailer, reviews, ratings and gross income. As a “Sunday Funday” study break, students can head to Gallagher in the Student Union Memorial Center to catch this free flick. “Our focus is to increase student engagement with Arizona Student Unions and make the union a hub for students on campus,” said Allen Womble, engagement coordinator for Arizona Student Unions.

Free screenings for students with CatCards give students a cheap and easy way to become engaged in the programs the student union has to offer. Gallagher wants to give students a fun and relaxing environment to make them feel at home, Womble said. “We’re looking to make this place the living room on campus,” Womble said, adding that the movie showings are meant for all students at the university, from freshmen to nontraditional, older students on campus. In addition to showing movies that have already debuted, Gallagher occasionally gives students the opportunity to see movies before they’re released. Attending the showings is also a good way to become more involved with the university, said Melissa Carreno, student engagement marketing assistant. “I’m really excited and hoping that students can come out and watch the movies we have, considering that they are free,” Carreno said. “We want students to come and enjoy the free movies that we offer at the student unions so they can get more involved with school and participate. We always love seeing new people engaging in this atmosphere.”

‘Getaway’ a thriller with no traction

A

… we listen

THE UA OMBUDS PROGRAM

ALEX GUYTON

number of witty quips could be made about how “Getaway” crashes and burns, that you should get away from “Getaway” or that “Getaway” is running on empty. However, instead of running car puns into the ground, here is some simple advice: Do not spend money on this movie, which consists almost entirely of the two main characters riding in a car. The plot: Thugs kidnap retired race car driver Brent Magna’s (Ethan Hawke, “Training Day”) wife, Leanne (Rebecca Budig). In their ransacked apartment, Brent Magna receives a phone call from a mysterious voice (Jon Voight, “National Treasure”) instructing him to get in a souped-up car, outfitted with cameras inside and out. When Brent Magna obeys, the unknown voice tells him that he will be carrying out various tasks in this car, the man behind the voice watching him all the while. If Brent Magna refuses, his wife will be killed. Along the way, Brent Magna picks up “The Kid” (Selena Gomez, “Spring Breakers”) after she tries to steal the car — which, it turns out, actually belonged to her in the first place. The two form an unlikely duo as they drive around Bulgaria, carrying out the voice’s commands while trying to figure out what its endgame is. While the poster for this movie may lead potential viewers to believe that the main actors in “Getaway” are Hawke and Gomez, the Shelby Mustang Super Snake really deserves the credit. The “tasks” from the voice usually consist of causing wanton destruction, from driving into a park filled with people to eluding police officers. The car is crashed, flipped, swerved, shot at and rammed so many times that the audience becomes immune to the rush that usually comes with a well-done action sequence. Chase scenes are typically used as rising action to break up the monotony of slower scenes; when they’re the entirety of the film, the excitement soon flatlines. Director Courtney Solomon and Director of Photography Yaron Levy use the numerous cameras attached to the inside and outside of the car in shooting and editing the action sequences. It’s more than possible that the cameras were made a part of the story simply so that each scene could be shot from about 10 different angles, providing maximum coverage. The movie switches between the different cameras so haphazardly that it becomes a daunting task just to understand what is happening onscreen. Additionally, some of the camera placements are simply unnecessary, such as the one that randomly offers a vantage point from behind the gear shifter. The one remarkably composed shot in the movie — an almost two-minute long take from the hood of the Mustang as it gives chase to the villain’s van — provides a much-needed quiet moment amid this movie’s cacophony. So much action leaves little room for sustained dialogue throughout the film. The

AFTER DARK FILMS

vast majority of the talking in “Getaway” simply consists of exclamations from the two characters as they experience their umpteenth near-death experience. Gomez tells Hawke that he’s a horrible driver for the 10th time, even though his driving is the only thing keeping them alive; Hawke tells Gomez to put on her seat belt for the fifth time, which shouldn’t be a request he should have to make since they are barreling down crowded city streets at 80 miles per hour and getting shot at by grenade launchers. Clearly, the script is not the film’s strong point. In terms of acting, one can only guess why Hawke is slumming it up by starring in this film. Miraculously, he is able to bring a certain level of honest desperation and feeling to the part. Gomez, however, is another story entirely and constantly struggles to deliver a single convincing line. Even simple, throwaway exclamations — “You’re going to get us killed!” or “Watch out!” — are somehow made cringeworthy by Gomez’s delivery. Unfortunately, her performance isn’t the sole blemish on an otherwise successful production, but rather the latest item on a laundry list of issues. For fast high-end cars, viewers should turn to “The Fast and the Furious” franchise. For an action film set in Europe involving the kidnapping of a loved one, rent “Taken.” To experience what it’s like to be stuck in a bumpy car ride for 94 minutes, a drive through the Grant Road Corridor Improvement is likely more enjoyable than “Getaway.”

Diversify your date night

W

AMY JOHNSON

ith nearly 14,000 out-of-state students enrolled at the UA, local creative date ideas might not be obvious to everyone. It’s difficult to develop a plan if your only idea of Tucson mainstays are Dirtbag’s and No Anchovies. Still, the city offers plenty of date-worthy locations — the only tricky part is choosing which one is right for the two of you.

If you’re active

Get Air Tucson is everyone’s childhood dream in one large room. An indoor trampoline arena, Get Air boasts over 20,000 square feet of wall-tofloor fun. “Basically, you just kind of jump around for a couple hours and maybe play dodgeball,” said Diego Armenta, a literacy, learning and leadership senior. For a date that’s still active but allows for more one-on-one time, there’s always Mount Lemmon. With plenty of trails, cool air and

hole-in-the wall restaurants, Mount Lemmon is a staple of the Tucson dating scene. After hiking, drive to any of the area’s hidden gems, like Mount Lemmon General Store and Gift Shop or the Mount Lemmon Cookie Cabin. Then, when night starts to fall and the temperature begins to drop, get comfy with a large blanket, watch the sun set and wait for the stars to come out. “I’ve been up [to Mount Lemmon] a lot of times to just watch the sun set,” said Jesus Casillas, an engineering and business sophomore. “That’s always pretty fun.”

If you’re romantic

Casa Vicente, a Spanish restaurant nestled in the heart of downtown Tucson, offers live music and dancing coupled with traditional tapas dishes. Casa Vicente features live guitar playing every night and flamenco performances on Fridays and Saturdays. The restaurant also houses tango lessons every Wednesday night, so you can impress your date with your sense of rhythm or share a laugh as you stumble over each

other’s feet. “In Spain, restaurants are really loud and people are talking,” said Meghan McKee, a server and hostess at Casa Vicente. “There’s lots of music, and that’s definitely what our atmosphere is all about.” In addition to the sultry Spanish atmosphere, Casa Vicente also boasts authentic cuisine including tapas, Mediterranean-style dishes of smaller portions, typically served and shared in a group. “Tapas are also [the] kind of dishes that are meant to be shared, so that’s a fun date thing,”

If the two of you are into community service, an afternoon at Ben’s Bells could be the perfect date, said Allison Burnette, a lead instructor of Campus Life and Project FOCUS. Created in honor of Jeanette Mare-Packard and Dean Packard’s son Ben, “Ben’s Bells symbolize kindness and its power in healing,” according to the organization’s website. Drop by the studios at Main Gate or downtown to help paint or work with clay from 10 a.m to 5 p.m., Tuesday through Saturday. If you’re up for a bigger art project, Creative Juice Art Bar on Tanque Verde Road offers a happy hour with drinks, music and painting for those over 21. For a twist on the typical dinner and a movie, check out the Etherton Gallery on Sixth Avenue for great local art, then walk down the street to the Hub Restaurant and Creamery. Nothing is more romantic than sharing a bowl of Thin Mints ice cream in a rustic, dimly lit atmosphere.

Do you have a favorite drink to make? Probably something simple, like a Jack and Coke. Doesn’t take that much time, pretty common, most people like it. Every bartender has their ace in the hole, you know? But I’ve got to keep that one a secret. How about a least favorite drink? Bloody Mary. Takes way too much time, and you always get an order for a bunch of them when it’s really busy. Plus, usually people order them in the afternoon, so that means you’re at work way too early. Who was your most memorable customer? Not any time recently, but years and years ago there was always this one girl that liked to get up on the bar and have guys take shots off of her. I’ll never forget her. I don’t remember what her name was, but I’ll never forget her.

Does that coincide with the strangest thing you’ve ever seen happen in a bar? That might be number one on the list. If I want to upset you as a bartender, how would I do that? Tap your credit card on the bar, scream for service, wave at me, say, “Hey, hey, hey,” over again. Just be patient. We’ll get to you. That’s our job. How can I make you happy? Just be a normal customer. Know what you want when I come to you. Not asking for an outrageous tip, just a normal tip. And be polite. Just remember: We’re humans, too. What’s a drinking trend you’d like to see disappear? I’m sure tonight and tomorrow night I’ll have a dozen answers to that question, but right now, can’t really think of it.

SOCCER

Undefeated Wildcats travel to Tempe BRIAN PEEL Arizona soccer will put its unblemished start to the 2013 season on the line this weekend when the team travels to Tempe, Ariz., to take on Kansas and Illinois at the Sun Devil Classic. The Wildcats (3-0-1) have had mixed results in ASU’s annual tournament, including splitting their two games in 2012. Still, the Wildcats are off to their best start since 2008, when the team won six of its first eight games of the year. The 2008 team struggled down the stretch, however, losing seven of its final eight contests and finishing with a 9-11-0 record for the season with no postseason appearance. Head coach Tony Amato attributes the hot start in 2013 to the team’s effort. “It all comes down to the girls’ work rate,” Amato said. “They made that their cornerstone and the foundation in what they’re doing. It all stems from their willingness to put in the work, do the right things, have effort in the game and try and be successful. When that is your foundation, you can build off that.” Arizona is fresh off a fruitful two-game stretch from last weekend, when the team produced a 6-0 victory over UC Riverside in

the Wildcats’ home opener before battling then-No. 24 Ohio State to a hard-fought 0-0 tie in Columbus, Ohio. The Wildcats open their weekend at the Sun Devil Classic with Kansas on Friday at 4:30 p.m., going up against a team that has won three of its first four games this season, including a 4-1 rout of Purdue in its most recent contest last Sunday. The Jayhawks

have only allowed two goals thus far and have scored eight of their own, led by senior forward Caroline Kastor. She leads the team with two goals and a pair of assists. Sunday’s game against Illinois at 11:30 a.m. pits Arizona’s stout defense against Illinois’ high-octane offense. The Illini (3-1-0) are currently tied for second in the country in goals scored with 17 at an average of 4.25 per

VOLLEYBALL

Arizona gets chance to improve DEREK EVANS Arizona indoor volleyball will look to bounce back this weekend after ending the last on a sour note. The Wildcats won their first two matches to start the season but blew their first big opportunity against Kansas, losing 2-1. This weekend won’t be easy for Arizona, as the team will start Friday at 7 p.m. against Butler, who is undefeated, 4-0. Junior outside hitter Belle Obert leads Butler with 52 kills. Next, the Wildcats take on Eastern Kentucky — which, just like Butler, is undefeated at 4-0 — on Saturday at 10:30 a.m. The Colonels are led by senior outside hitter Ashley Edmond, who has a team high 65 kills, and junior defensive specialist Dena Ott, who leads the team with 75 digs. Arizona will finish the tournament with a match against Utah Valley at 7 p.m. on Saturday. UVU appears to be the easiest match on the schedule for the Wildcats, as it is only 1-3 on the season. Head coach Dave Rubio said he doesn’t think the team is quite where it needs to be. “We haven’t looked as I’d like us to look,” Rubio said. “At this early stage of the season, I think that the things we’re trying to accomplish haven’t been lost, but I think we’re just not nearly as engaged in what I think we need to

do.” Energy and communication are important in volleyball, and the team’s levels aren’t where they need to be, he added. However, yesterday’s practice was better. “Sometimes we come in and we’re a little flat, not as intense as we need to be,” Rubio said. Rubio said he knows the team is in for a tough challenge this weekend. “I’ve been looking at Butler’s film, and they’re good — they’re really good,” he said. “They’re old, they have talent, and that’s always a dangerous combination.” Arizona junior libero Ronni Lewis said she has a positive outlook on the season start. “I think we’re on the right track,” Lewis said. “Obviously it was a tough loss, but you have to lose in order to gain some experience, and I think that opened our eyes as a whole [team].” As a libero, Lewis’s specialty is defense. “Defense goes in hand with blocking, and we’ve been working really hard on blocking,” he said. “If our block can be solid, then defense behind is pretty easy. I think we’re pretty competitive in that aspect of the game.” This weekend’s performance could act as an indicator of where the team is at, compared to where the team wants and needs to be. — Follow Derek Evans @DerekEvans20

game. After a tough start to the season, when Illinois lost 4-1 on the road to then-No. 10 Notre Dame, the team has played well, winning its last three games with a minimum of five goals scored in each. Junior forward Jannelle Flaws already has five goals to her credit this season, a year after missing all of 2012 with a leg injury. Flaws won Big Ten Offensive Player of the Week last week. “I told the team, ‘It doesn’t get any easier,’” Amato said. “Kansas is a very good team, and so is Illinois. They are two teams that consistently make the NCAA tournament, so it’s another great test for us.” If the Wildcats want to keep their unbeaten start in 2013 going past this weekend, the defense will have to continue to be stellar, and it all starts with junior goalkeeper Gabby Kaufman, who was named Pac-12 Defensive Player of the Week on Tuesday after helping shut out UC Riverside and Ohio State. “It’s a big honor, especially for this program,” Kaufman said, “but at the end of the day, as a whole defensive unit, we just had a great couple of games. Everybody did their part, and I think it really should go to the whole unit. I’m really proud of the way we played.” — Follow Brian Peel @BrianPeel91

supposed to do and they have less points than us, then we’re good.” On offense, Arizona’s spread option shouldn’t have too much of a problem scoring. The Rebels gave up an average of 36 points in 2012, but with nine returning starters on defense, they should be more comfortable with defensive coordinator Tim Hauck’s 4-3 system. Arizona’s all-American junior running back, Ka’Deem Carey, will return against UNLV after being suspended by Rodriguez for the first game. That being said, Rodriguez announced Wednesday that senior running back Daniel Jenkins will get the start on Saturday. Quarterback senior B.J. Denker will make his third career and second consecutive start. Rodriguez also said that backup redshirt freshman Javelle Allen had a great week of practice and could see playing time this week — if Denker struggles or the Wildcats have a commanding lead at the end of the game. Rodriguez did not allow the media to interview players after Tuesday’s practice, but Bondurant said it was an abberation. “It was just one of those practices. They happen,” Bondurant said. “But he told us what we needed to work on. And we had our team meeting before practice and made up for it [Thursday in practice], and we know we just got to turn it up.” — Follow Luke Della @LukeDellaDW

FOOTBALL

High rolling in Sin City LUKE DELLA Head coach Rich Rodriguez began Wednesday’s practice with a 30-minute team meeting. Though the Wildcats are coming off a 35-0 victory over NAU last Friday, the second-year Wildcats football coach wasn’t too pleased with their effort in practice on Tuesday. UNLV (0-1) might have lost at home to NAU 17-14 last season and might be expected to finish near the bottom of the Mountain West Conference this season, but the Rebels are still a large, physical team that matches up well with Arizona (1-0). “Our focus needed to be on correcting some things after practice [Tuesday],” Rodriguez said after practice on Wednesday. “I don’t have too many team meetings, though.” Rodriguez, who usually leaves long team meetings to his position coaches, sat his team down to make sure its focus was where it needed to be. On defense, it will be on stopping UNLV running back Tim Cornett. The Rebels senior was held to just 80 yards on 20 carries last week in UNLV’s 51-23 loss to Minnesota, but the chance that happens two weeks in a row is doubtful. Cornett is just 620 yards shy of passing Mike Thomas as UNLV’s all-time rushing leader with 3,149 yards. “We don’t have anyone in our program like [Cornett],” Rodriguez said, “so not tackling a guy like that is going to be a big concern for us at the beginning of the game.” Arizona’s win over the Lumberjacks last week was the second shutout by the Wildcats’ defense in two years. In the last 20 years, Arizona’s defense has only shut out six opponents, including the two most recent. 7:30 p.m @ Sam Boyd Stadium TV: CBS Sports Network Radio: 1290 AM, Sirius 94, XM 192 Weather: 10 percent chance of rain, wind: NE at 5 mph UA-UNLV Series History All-Time: Arizona leads 1-0 First Meeting: 2001 (Arizona 38, UNLV 21 at

The last time the Wildcats shut out back-to-back teams was in 1975, when then-head coach Jim Young led his team to a 9-2 record and No. 18 national ranking.

rizona football is set to take on the UNLV Rebels on Saturday, and it’s worth learning some MEGAN COGHLAN facts, not just about the competition, but the school and its tradition as well. UNLV football had its first game against St. Mary’s in 1968, under head coach Bill Ireland. The Rebels won 27-20 and UNLV is now an FBS school in the Mountain West Conference. They play at Sam Boyd Stadium, which was built in 1971 and seats 36,800. UNLV football is currently led by head coach Bobby Hauck, in his fourth year. The major source of competition the Rebels have to offer is senior running back Tim Cornett, whose 2012 record of 1,232 yards still falls short of Arizona running back Ka’Deem Carey’s record 1,929 yards. Sophomore quarterback Nick Sherry, a Casa Grande (Calif.) High School alum, impressed last year as freshman starter. Against Minnesota last week, he completed 35 of 50 passing attempts. Without much veteran leadership, the young team will have to play beyond its years. The Rebels’ in-state rival is the Nevada Wolf Pack, which has had more football success than UNLV. Every year, the two schools hold the “Battle of Nevada,” after which the winner takes home the Fremont Cannon, the heaviest and most expensive trophy in college football, according to Nevada’s website. UNLV has won 15 of the 38 rivalry football games since 1969, its last victory coming in 2004. According to fbschedules.com, Arizona will play both Nevada and UNLV in 2014, then the Wolfpack again in 2015. Arizona beat Nevada last year in the New Mexico Bowl. The UNLV colors are scarlet and gray, and date back to the 1950s. The Rebels’ mascot is a nod to the school’s intended uprising against the University of Nevada, Reno, as

UNLV essentially “rebelled” against its northern counterpart. With the campus’ convenient location eight minutes from the Las Vegas strip, it makes sense that the school offers a Bachelor of Science degree in Hospitality Management with a concentration in gaming management, which teaches the mathematics of slot machines, table games and casino marketing. Also offered is a minor in Compulsive Gambling. No, it doesn’t teach students to become compulsive gamblers, but instead educates them on the awareness of addiction and ethical issues in the gaming industry. UNLV’s hotel program in the hospitality management program boasts successful alumni who have moved on to manage some of the well-known resorts on the strip. Cynthia Kiser Murphey, president and chief operating officer of New York-New York and Scott Sibella, president of Mirage both graduated from UNLV. Six UNLV alumni are currently in the NFL, including Eric Wright on the San Francisco 49ers. Former NFL quarterback Randall Cunningham also played for UNLV football and returned to the school to finish his degree after retiring from the NFL. Other recognizable alumni include Food Network star Guy Fieri and ESPN broadcaster Kenny Mayne. — Follow Megan Coghlan @ MeganCoghlan
