NEWS City Council wants distracted driving penalty Friday — Sunday Jan. 13 — Jan. 15 Page 2

Editor: Andrew Paxton (520) 621-7579

BY JESSICA SURIANO @suriano_jessica

The Tucson City Council discussed a proposed new ordinance regarding new penalties for distracted driving during its Tuesday night meeting. Under this proposed ordinance, distracted driving, including using mobile handheld devices, would be considered a secondary offense. A secondary offense means a driver would have to be pulled over for an offense such as speeding first and then be additionally charged with distracted driving. A driver who creates a collision because of distracted driving may also be subject to a minimum $250 fine, although Ward 3 Council member Karin Uhlich proposed this amount should be greater. Lee Ryan, a psychology professor and the head of the psychology department at the UA, said using devices while driving is made more difficult when senses such as sight and motor skills have to work simultaneously, as opposed to when senses such as sight and hearing can work independently. “When you’re trying to do these two things that have so much perceptual and motor overlap, that’s when you run into problems,” Ryan said. Ryan compared enforcing fines for distracted driving to when fines were first enforced to make people wear seat belts. “It is an effective way to get people to engage in a behavior, or in this case, not engage in a behavior,” Ryan said. “We know it works with seat belts, so maybe it will be effective. We’ll have to wait and see.” The council defined a “mobile communication device” and a “portable electronic device” as a wireless communication device used for calls, texts, pictures and data but excludes devices that can be physically integrated into the vehicle during use, such as with Bluetooth. Ward 6 Council member Steve Kozachik said Pima County’s current ban on just

Kozachik said. Ward 5 Council member Richard Fimbres said distracted driving policies often becomes broad issues because of all the different devices that can fall under the category of a “portable electronic device,” such as an MP3 player. Council member Regina Romero also discussed the problem of racial profiling intertwining with this proposed ordinance. She cited statistics from the American Civil Liberties Union and the Lawyers’ Committee for Civil Rights of the San Francisco Bay Area in the study session to point out that some research concludes black and Latino people are pulled over by police much more often than Caucasian people for the same driving behaviors. She said she had concerns about this ordinance exacerbating that problem here in Tucson if the distracted driving penalties were made a primary offense. She suggested efforts be made to educate the community on what does and does not qualify as distracted driving if it is ever made to be a primary offense. Tucson Police Department Chief Chris Magnus said he views concerns about racial profiling “serious and appropriate.” “Distracted driving cuts across all races, ethnicities and genders,” Magnus said in the study session. Similarly, during the meeting following the study session, Richard Estrada, the director of Arizona’s branch of the League of United Latin American Citizens, spoke to the council during the “call to audience” portion about his concerns that this proposed ordinance could lead to SB 1070-related problems down the road. While the council debated compromises in the ordinance to address these different concerns, one sentiment was unanimous: “Distracted driving can have dire consequences on everyone’s life,” Cunningham said.

University’s Auld Dubliner closes The ‘Dub’ had a decade-long run, gaining a reputation for flaming ‘Harry Potter shots’ BY DAVID PUJOL @DailyWildcat

The Auld Dubliner, a local bar, recently closed with no warning to the public besides a sign posted on the doors by the Marshall Foundation, landlord of the property the bar occupied. No warning for the bargoers was given before one of their favorite bars became no more. With nothing but a sign on the door and no staff in sight, the bar is now inaccessible to the public. The notice states that the foundation has terminated the lease, taken possession of the premises and placed a lien on the property. The Dubliner has been silent since word of the closing was first announced, with no postings on Facebook, Twitter or Instagram. Emails to the address listed on the bar’s website result in a delivery failure notice. Calls to the number listed for the bar rang unanswered. A representative for the Marshall Foundation declined to give many details on the situation. “I can’t really discuss anything because it’s confidential, but all I can say is that there were obligations by both parties and now they’re closed,” said Marshall Foundation employee Jane McCollum in a phone interview. Although the cause of The Dubliner closing is unknown, what is very well known is it being such a pillar in the

university night life. The Irish bar brought a drop of the wizarding world of Harry Potter to life with a Harry Potterthemed shot. Few patrons would have guessed that the last time they belted their hearts out during karaoke or retained that tidbit of useless information for trivia night and got a question right would be their final memories of the bar known by most as simply “The Dub.” “When I turned 21, I was a regular for karaoke. Every single Monday night, I was there and it was so much fun. I made friends with everyone there from the staff to regulars,” said recent UA grad Mary Ferrando. After graduating this past May with her degree in Sociology, Ferrando said she heard the news about Auld Dubliner closing from a former coworker at Illegal Pete’s. “I feel like the regulars were a closeknit community; I remember one of the bartenders sold candles as a side job and we would buy candles from her,” Ferrando said. She came back to Arizona for homecoming this past year and said it’ll break her heart knowing that when she goes back this year the Dub won’t be there. Students who will miss the Irish bar can find two more locations, but you’ll pack an overnight bag. One is located in Tustin, California and the other in Henderson, Nevada.

ASUA Senate details plans for fall semester BY ELILIABETH O’CONNELL @_eoconnell

The Associated Students of the University of Arizona senators are working to make a smooth transition for newly elected college-specific senators, as well as completing their goals before their term is up. A major difference in this year’s senate is the implementation of college-specific senators. Many senators have put a focus on clarifying and defining the roles of these new positions. “The importance is representation from all sides of the spectrum and all the students,” said Matthew Lubisich, president of the senate. “A lot of representation is needed at the college level.” Lubisich has met with all of the college-specific deans to build a foundation between the senators and the colleges. Anna Reimers is one of the collegespecific senators, representing the College of Education. She met with Ronald Marx, the College of Education dean, and together they have discussed the importance of having representation in ASUA. They are hoping to have the College of Education senator also sit in on the college’s council meetings. Reimers explained that this year is a

building year for the senate. The collegespecific senators are figuring out what will work best for their colleges, because each college structure is different. She said the college-specific senators will be able to make more connections between the respective colleges and ASUA. “I think it is a really good idea and it has a lot of potential,” Reimers said. “We are focusing on what we want future candidates to run off of.” Reimers explained that ASUA is hoping to have 17 college-specific senators next year and only three atlarge senators for more representation throughout campus. Reimers, along with other senators, are working on a transition meeting for the newly elected senators in May. This meeting will better define what each college-specific senator will be responsible for and what they can build from. The goal is to provide a smoother transition for the new senators. The hope is to bridge the gap between ASUA and the rest of the student population. A majority of the senators are also working to increase awareness of ASUA elections to get more students involved. Lubisich explained that his worry that senators may lose focus during the spring semester. But he said he thinks that by publishing their progress reports

students will be able to hold the the senators accountable. Other projects the senators have been working on include the second year of the “I Will” campaign, which will be held the first week of April. Senators are also wanting to focus on

sexual assault prevention, inclusivity of individuals with disabilities, increasing the number of honor’s classes and the implementation of a rest center in the libraries.

Res life director candidate presents vision BY KYLIE WARREN @kykywarren

Residence Life is in the process of interviewing the final two candidates for the permanent Executive Director of Residence Life after the previous director left last semester. The candidates were chosen by a large committee of university faculty and staff. “We did first-round Skype interviews with the top-tier candidates, and these two just impressed the committee,” said Amanda Kraus, co-chair for the search. “[The search committee was impressed with] the way they spoke about student development, diversity and generally seemed like they would be the best fit for the position based on the needs of our department,” she said. Interim Executive Director of Residence Life and University

Housing Nicholas Sweeton was the first of the two to give a presentation at an open forum in the Student Union Memorial Center’s Kiva Room on Thursday, Jan. 12. The forum was a presentation by the candidate, followed by a Q&A session from those who attended. Sweeton, who has 21 year years of experience, presented his main goal involving emergency management and student safety. “I wanted to present on something I had a mastery of and that I have passion for,” Sweeton said. He discussed the psychology of emergencies, organizations of an emergency response and how to implement his emergency strategies. “I would like to shore up the training of our staff for emergencies,” Sweeton said. During work at other

institutions, Sweeton organized multi-vacancy emergency simulations that contained actors who were injured and needed help getting out of the building. He said local fire department, police and others responded and the goals set were put into practice. “I think that is the next stage for emergency management … doing that and doing actual simulations, so that people can practice these in a somewhat close to real world setting before the real world thing actually happens,” Sweeton said. Besides emergency initiatives, Sweeton hopes to hire staff that are “committed to helping us with that portion [social justice] of our mission and vision,” of how to make things more affordable for those in different economic classes to be able to live in residence halls and to create a new building

that is “an entrepreneurial, innovative hub for our students to work in and live in.” “Like he said, the biggest priority is making sure students are safe,” ASA Coordinator Karla Cruze-Silva said. “It is our job as a staff member to really make sure they are safe. Students think it’s a little bit funny or silly what we do, but it’s important.” Cruze-Silva said that Sweeton’s emergency protocol is important and his presentation was well-planned. “It is sincerely a huge honor to be a finalist for a position of this level at an institute of this caliber,” Sweeton said. “So thank you, thank you all very much.” The second candidate, Edwin Hamada, will give his presentation on Jan. 23 in the Student Union Memorial Center Kiva room at 11:15 a.m.


NICHOLAS SWEETON, ONE OF the applicants to be the new Residence Life director, answers questions from the audience during his interview on Jan. 12. Sweeton plans on implementing procedures for students living in dorms to better respond to emergencies.

Harassment by mail An officer from the University of Arizona Police Department responded to an information call from Campus Health at noon on Jan. 6 after a female UA employee made complaints about threatening mail she had been receiving at her personal residence from a male suspect. She told police the mail contained flyers that were anti-abortion and included biblical verses. She described them as being very graphic in nature, portraying images of women with spears in their genitals and drawings of people that appeared to be burning or on fire. The female employee went on to explain to police her previous work experience at Planned Parenthood. She was unsure how the male suspect obtained her home address but told an officer both her affiliation with the UA, Planned Parenthood and the location of her job were able to be found after an internet search of her name. Police asked if she had ever interacted with the suspect. She verified she had never met the suspect and he had never tried to contact her in the workplace. Officers provided the female UA employee with information on an Injunction Against Harassment. After a background check on the male suspect, officers found two Orders of Protection against him by different government agencies due to his threatening mail and contact with different government officials. Prop 205 was passed, right? A Coronado resident assistant called the University of Arizona Police Department at midnight on Jan. 8 after encountering a strong smell of marijuana on the ninth floor. Upon arrival, an officer walked through the hallway in order to pinpoint where the smell was coming from and knocked on the door with the strongest marijuana odor. A male student answered, allowing the officer to enter the residence. The officer asked the male resident if he had been smoking. The resident responded that he had smoked about an hour and a half prior outside. He told the officer he was also in possession of a pipe and grinder in his room. After the resident consented for a search, the officer discovered a glass bong as well as a black marijuana grinder. The resident claimed he brought the marijuana from Washington and was not aware it was illegal to smoke on campus. The officer read the resident his Miranda Rights and took the bong and grinder to be placed into evidence. A Referral for Narcotics was sent to the Dean of Students.

Vice president, UA Graduate and Professional Student Council In 2016, a woman ran for President. Her detractors lobbed accusations of corruption and gossiped about her e-mails. Strangely, this description actually applies to two women – one at the national level, and one here at the University of Arizona. We’re all far too familiar with the saga of Hillary Clinton’s e-mail server, and it reflects the dynamic of GPSC here at home. Early last year, GPSC’s Secretary, Mariia Khorosheva, began insinuating that a fellow GPSC member, Sarah Netherton, had been acting improperly. Khorosheva repeatedly stated that she possessed e-mails that proved her allegations, although no such e-mails ever materialized. Just as Clinton detractors focused on hypothetical security risks rather than any specific e-mail, Khorosheva seemed to be more focused on asserting the existence of incriminating evidence rather than proving it. After November’s election, a flurry of articles blamed “fake news” for Clinton’s defeat. GPSC’s election also suffered from the fake news phenomenon: the Daily Wildcat’s Lauren Renteria published an article about Netherton so riddled with factual inaccuracies that it could best be described as a smear piece, complete with a sensational infographic. Although many

LETTER TO THE EDITOR of the “mistakes” were eventually corrected in the online version of the article, the unedited story stayed up for the full duration of GPSC’s voting period, presumably having a negative impact on Netherton’s presidential bid. GPSC and United States politics were strikingly similar on other fronts as well. Even as the CIA was preparing a report on Russia’s manipulation of the U.S. presidential election, GPSC was experiencing its own foreign interference. Zachary Brooks, an employee with UA’s Office of Global Initiatives, contacted GPSC representatives requesting that they vote down a motion he disagreed with. While Brooks was referenced during GPSC’s discussion of the motion by individuals voting no, representatives were largely silent about their own constituents’ opinions, suggesting that a University employee holds more influence in GPSC’s affairs than the thousands of students that representatives were ostensibly elected to serve. It’s not often that the winner calls the validity of an election into question, like Trump did with his tweet claiming that millions of illegal votes were cast for Clinton. However, Jim Collins, GPSC’s Treasurer and Non-Degree Seeking Representative, filed two elections complaints in September requesting that GPSC’s 2016 Spring and Fall elections be invalidated. Collins argued that students paying their semester fees on an installment plan and other students carrying Bursar’s balances should have been barred from voting. It’s unclear whether Collins

was earnestly attempting to disenfranchise financially-struggling graduate students; Randall Eck’s article in the Daily Wildcat suggests that Collins filed the complaints, which ate hours of administrator and officer time, simply to protest a prior elections code ruling. Many people have accused Trump of using his president-elect status to benefit financially. Collins appears to have attempted the same in his position as GPSC Treasurer; shortly after being elected, Collins formed and chaired a two-member committee which voted to award Collins $1,575 of GPSC’s workshop funds. Although members of GPSC raised conflict of interest concerns, Collins refused to allow a new committee to review workshop submissions, ultimately causing the workshop program to be scrapped and denying funding to seven other graduate student applicants. Impeachment has been a hot topic since Trump’s election, with petitions and proposed legislation piling up in support of removing Trump. GPSC is a step ahead, holding an impeachment hearing at its last Fall meeting of 2016. However, despite Treasurer Collins being impeached for alleged malfeasance and nonfeasance, and despite Collins not disputing the majority of the charges (which ranged from attempting to cripple GPSC’s Travel Grants program to singlehandedly costing GPSC $4,000 – the full petition can be found at goo. gl/yRSWSq), GPSC voted to keep Collins in office. Collins’ proponents focused mainly on

his personality and presumed good intentions, much the way Trump’s supporters seemingly ignored troubling public behavior. “[GPSC’s] purpose is to promote the academic, economic, and social aims of the graduate and professional students of the University of Arizona.” Students might be wondering how their elected representatives could have strayed so far from GPSC’s mission statement. The simple answer is, just as in federal elections, students don’t vote. They don’t run for office. They don’t get involved in a political scene that has the power to drastically affect their education. If you want your elected representatives to act in your best interest, prove you’re watching. Send an e-mail to your GPSC reps – contact information can be found on the People page of GPSC’s website. Call your state or U.S. legislators. Sign up for the GPSC newsletter and keep up-to-date on the advocacy activities of national graduate student organizations like NAGPS and SAGE. Upcoming issues that might affect you include GPSC term limits, protections for DACA and other undocumented students, and subsidizing federal loans for graduate students. And if you want to have a more direct impact, run in GPSC’s Spring elections, which will likely take place in March. Journalists and politicians predict federal politics will stay tumultuous for the next four years. If graduate students act, GPSC’s future doesn’t have to be the same.

SCIENCE OSIRIS-REx to search for Trojan asteroids Friday — Sunday Jan. 13 — Jan. 15 Page 8

Editor: Logan Nagel (520) 621-7579

Before reaching Bennu, OSIRIS-REx will search for asteroids following Earth’s orbit BY HANNAH DAHL @DailyWildcat

In February, the spacecraft OSIRISREx will begin a search for Trojan asteroids—unique asteroids that share Earth’s orbit. The search will take place over a period of 10-12 days and will be conducted by a team at UA’s Lunar and Planetary Laboratory. “[This search] gives us a chance to really practice a maneuver that we will execute again in 2 years and ensure that we’re performing it correctly, our cameras are working appropriately, and it’ll be an added plus if, during that search, we find a Trojan asteroid,” said Sara Knutson, OSIRIS-REx science operations lead engineer for the mission. Trojan asteroids are asteroids that orbit the sun in the same orbit as Jupiter’s orbit, although they remain 60 degrees ahead or behind of Jupiter at all times, said Renu Malhotra, regents’ professor of planetary sciences. While the name ‘Trojan asteroids’ applies specifically to Jupiter, these same types of asteroids can be found among other planets such as Neptune, Mars, Uranus and Earth. The idea to involve the OSIRISREx spacecraft in the search for Earth-Trojan asteroids was originally Malhotra’s. “In my mind, the question has always been: what about Earth?” Malhotra said. “When I realized this OSIRIS-REx spacecraft was going to be traveling through a region of space that would be 60 degrees ahead of Earth in its own orbit, I suggested to Dante Lauretta, the principal investigator of this mission [and a professor of planetary science and cosmochemistry], that they could open up their cameras and take a few pictures to see if they could detect anything nearby.” While NASA originally rejected Malhotra’s idea, they recently agreed to fund the asteroid search. The search for Earth-Trojan asteroids is more than just a scientific exploration; it also serves as an important calibration test for the spacecraft’s instruments. “Everything was preliminarily calibrated here on the ground in a clean room, with a light source similar

to the sun, so we have an idea of how our instruments would operate in space, in a cold-vacuum environment. But now we’re actually in space, and so we want to re-execute those same types of tests to make sure that our instruments are performing as we expected,” Knutson said. In order to detect if there are any Earth-Trojan asteroids, the team will use their MapCam camera, taking about 50 images a day and pointing at the same spot in the sky two days in a row, Knutson said. An image processing team at the LPL then analyzes each image, searching for any unique features that might indicate an asteroid. While Earth-Trojan asteroids are known by scientists, some researchers believe that there should be more than we currently see. “There’s an excess in [craters] one hemisphere of the moon relative to the other hemisphere, and that excess led me to think that we don’t have a good explanation for that, and one possible explanation is that there’s this population we don’t know about, this population of asteroids that might be giving us impactors that preferentially hit the moon on one hemisphere,” Malhotra said. If this new Earth-Trojan asteroid population does exist, it would mean a bonanza for our understanding of the population of near-Earth asteroids, Malhotra said. In the last 20 years, the U.S. government has mandated that NASA devote resources to studying asteroids that are close to the Earth’s orbit, as they pose a potential hazard to national security. “This would be the big gap, our blind spot that we have not seen, and I’m sure that would be totally astonishing to astronomers, that there’s a large population [of asteroids] here,” Malhotra said. If the spacecraft doesn’t find any evidence of the asteroids, it will raise further questions about Earth’s early history. “In principle, the stability of the orbits in [the Earth’s] region is quite large, so if there was a primordial population of asteroids that survived, if the Earth formed in a similar way as our theories say, then there ought to be a surviving population of EarthTrojans,” Malhotra said. According to Malhotra, other

The asteroid is shown in gray with its extreme orbit is shown in green. Earth’s orbit around the sun is indicated by blue dots. OSIRIS-REx hopes to discover more of these asteroids than are currently identified.

possible explanations for the missing asteroids could be a past perturbation of Earth’s orbit or a low population density of asteroids. This asteroid search is the first in a series of important maneuvers the spacecraft will undergo this year, including its six-month instrument calibration in March and the Earth gravity assist in September, Knutson said. Knutson also mentioned another important aspect of the asteroid search, referring to the team of students who will be heavily involved throughout the entire process. Both undergraduate and graduate students help with everything from writing the software and programming instruments to identifying unique features in the images the MapCam takes. All of this helps the team to prepare for the procedures they will perform when OSIRIS-REx reaches its final destination. “Right now it’s just unique features

Washington poses emotional challenge for Barnes Arizona head coach Adia Barnes is looking for a player to turn the program around, a player like Washington’s Kelsey Plum, who she recruited BY SAUL BOOKMAN @Saul_Bookman

Adia Barnes is looking for the next great Wildcat, the player who will take the program to another level, a player that will elevate everyone else’s standards and work ethic, a player like Washington Huskies guard Kelsey Plum. Barnes was one of the people responsible for bringing Plum to Seattle, prior to taking over as Arizona Wildcats women’s basketball head coach. Barnes’ relationship with Plum and several others on Washington is strong; however, those feelings will be set aside for the first matchup of the season between the two teams. “It’s a place that has my heart because I spent so many years in that city,” Barnes said. “Coach [Mike] Neighbors and I are good friends so [there are] a lot of special memories, but I am a competitor so I want to win, especially since we’re at home.” The Wildcats will have their hands full to say the least. The Huskies come into Friday’s matchup ranked No. 8 nationally and led by Plum, with one of the more dynamic offenses in the country. The huskies have the No.5-ranked offense in the country and are No. 1 in the Pac-12, Plum’s 30.7-points-per-game average is a big reason why. “I think Kelsey is a phenomenal player; she’ll be a pro player,” Barnes said. “She is one of the hardest working players that I’ve ever been around, and I’ve been around some of the best players in the world throughout my career. There is no one that works harder than her and just to watch her grow every year and watch her evolve into a great leader too, I was the one who challenged her to be Academic All-American and she got that. So I am really happy she is someone I still talk to a lot.” Two games ago Plum scored 34 points against USC, going 5 for 7 from the freethrow line. A good night by most standards, but Plum isn’t like most players. “Coach Morgan Valley and I have this agreement [that each freethrow] missed is a 16 line [a sprint to each end of the court], so I’ll have 32 of them tomorrow,” Plum said to Pac-12 Networks. Plum represents what Barnes wants in players, what she is trying to employ within the team and the type of basketball junkie she is targeting on the recruiting trail. Barnes doesn’t take complete credit for recruiting Plum, but she does acknowledge she had a big hand in her recruitment. Plum is from the San Diego area, as is Barnes, so the relationship was solid from the beginning and the Huskies reaped the benefits. Plum’s gym rat mentality was the engine behind Washington’s Final Four run last season. That could’ve been the peak for the senior, but it wasn’t. Her numbers this season have been better, not a good sign for an Arizona Wildcats team that is middle of the pack in conference scoring defense. Plum has dropped 44 points in a game three times

O’Toole named to US Women’s National Team, first UA player since Jennie Finch to achieve honor BY CHRISTOPHER DEAK @ChrisDeakDW

Arizona senior Danielle O’Toole became the 19th softball player in UA history to be selected as a member of the United States Women’s National Team last Friday. She is the fifth pitcher to earn a spot on the team, and the first since Arizona’s Jennie Finch was a member of the 2008 Olympic team. O’Toole was invited to try out for the spot at the end of last October and was in Clearwater, Florida for a week-long try out early this month. The senior said she was notified that she made the team the day after the tryout concluded and was blown away when she received word that she made it. “I cried,” O’Toole said. “I was super excited about it. I think that I almost spilled my bowl of cheerios that I was eating when I read it.” Senior and Arizona outfielder Katiyana Mauga lit up when asked about her teammate making the national team. “I was very excited for her,” Mauga said. “[O’Toole] came on strong last year for us, so I’m very happy for her. She deserved it.” The final team consists of a 20-woman roster, seven of which are current Pac-12

Conference competitors, and includes nine former NCAA players. With a tryout mixed between current and veteran players, O’Toole had to be at the top of her game during the tryout. What stood out the most to the senior was the talent pool she was going up against. “[I was surprised] at the amount of talent on one field,” O’Toole said. O’Toole became known for being a fiery competitor last year, and anyone who watched the senior knows that on game days she’s all business. When she arrived in Florida for her tryout, she had already been mentally preparing for the week, but was taken back at the atmosphere of the tryout. “Everyone is super competitive and super ready, but I just think that everyone was breathing easy and nothing was super serious,” O’Toole said. “I think that was the biggest ‘wow’ to me.” O’Toole established herself as one of the nation’s elite last summer during Arizona’s NCAA tournament run. In the Knoxville regional, she was responsible for all three of Arizona’s victories and tossed all but 2.2 innings throughout. In a span of 31 hours, she threw 16.1 innings



that included a one-hit shutout of the No. 13 Tennessee Volunteers. In the super regional against eventual national runner-up Auburn, she held one of the nation’s top offenses to two hits in Arizona’s series opening victory. O’Toole and the Wildcats eventually fell to the Tigers in three games. Head coach Mike Candrea knows what it’s like to represent the United States. He served as the coach for the national team, bringing home gold in 2004 and a silver medal in 2008. “I know what it’s like to be on foreign soil and represent this country and know that not many people like the United States,” Candrea said. “Which is a little different feeling when you go abroad, but the best feeling is when you come back and you want to kiss the ground because you live in the best country in the world. It’s always exciting for a kid to get an opportunity to put on that uniform, and it’s like no other opportunity. It’s the chance of a lifetime.” O’Toole led the Pac-12 in victories (26) last year and finished third in ERA (2.17) and strikeouts (192). She will likely be named a pre-season all Pac-12 pitcher, and after making the national team, could very well be named a pre-season All-American.

Hurley, Sun devils unable to win in Tucson Sun Devils struggle against the Wildcats after coach Bobby Hurley "pokes the bear" with comments made last week


When No. 16 Arizona was leading the ASU Sun Devils 42-18 in the first half and the Zona Zoo was chanting ASU head coach Bobby Hurley’s name, it was like a scene out of a movie. You know, where the record player scratch sound hits and there’s a freeze frame of Hurley rubbing his head in distraught. Then the opening line is, “Yep that’s me. You are probably wondering how I got here?” Well all it took was one comment to put him and the Sun Devils in that position. Looking back on last week’s matchup with Utah, Arizona was looking to complete a sweep and call it a week. It wasn’t anything special, just a typical week at the office for the Wildcats. ASU came off an emotional win against Colorado and a camera caught Hurley motivating his team to get rest and prepare for the next week, “because if anyone wants to win here, then they better go down to fucking Tucson.” Hurley said earlier this week that the comment wasn’t a target at Arizona or head coach Sean Miller in particular, but just a method to hype his team up. The only issue is that ASU still had a game with Utah, which the Sun Devils lost, and on top of all of it, the Wildcats have won six consecutive matchups. As a second-year head coach, was it really smart for Hurley to make those remarks? Arizona normally treated the clash with its in-state foe just like any other game regardless of the bragging rights at stake. I enjoyed Hurley’s comments and tip my cap to him, because it took some guts for him to motivate his team to beat Arizona, who usually has been the bully older brother throughout history. It was an electric way to stir the pot and create some buzz going into the game for fans and even for the media, because who doesn’t get a kick out of seeing a bunch of college students chant “F--k you Bobby!” Kadeem Allen said last week that the Wildcats weren’t phased by his comments and their play will do the talking. The Wildcats opened up the game with a 14-2 lead and never looked back. The first half against the Sun Devils was without a doubt the best open to a half that Arizona has posted this season. “No matter where you are playing on

the road, you want to get your feet under you. I tried to flip it in the huddle telling my guys ‘you have to fight the whole game and we are going to climb back into it’,” Hurley said. “And we did, but we never got to a margin where we could out significant pressure on Arizona.” At the first timeout, senior Dusan Ristic had 9 points and three offensive rebounds. Kobi Simmons had a down week against Colorado and Utah with 11 points on only one made three-pointer, but he started feeling it from beyond the arc against the Sun Devils, connecting on three shots from deep. What truly sent the message was when Rawle Alkins caught two alley-oop passes from Parker Jackson-Cartwright and Kadeem Allen in the first half. Those two plays alone rocked McKale Center. Alkins’

pair of dunks was the only field goals made for him, but he invigorated an already hostile environment. I give credit to ASU, because in the second half the Sun Devils started knocking down three-pointers and cutting the deficit to an uncomfortable margin of 12, but their 10 three-pointers in the second half weren't enough. Arizona, who went into the game averaging 14 per game,finished the game with 25 assists, and they out-rebounded the Sun Devils 38-22. “The coaches express that a lot in practice to share the ball, from one side to the second side to the third side,” Allen said. “I feel like once we get the ball to that fourth side, we are a very good team and it is hard to defend us.”

Lauri Markkanen finished with a careerhigh 30 points and eight rebounds, and the Wildcats led for 39:45. The other 15 seconds was Arizona setting up its offense. “[Lauri Markkanen] is all business; there is no screwing around with him," Miller said. "He never compromises that." At the end of the day, Arizona won another lopsided game against ASU, 91-75, and we should all just take the time to thank Hurley for adding some spice to the rivalry. I’ve never seen the Zona Zoo attack former ASU head coach Herb Sendek or even James Harden that aggressively. Maybe Hurley should take Allen’s advice and let the play do the talking, because the Sun Devils brought a whole different animal out in Arizona.

A CROSLEY TURNTABLE IS powered on on Monday, Jan. 9. Turntables play vinyls, which recently have become more popular.

Retro technology makes a comeback Vinyl records, cassettes and polaroids are growing in popularity, and several Tucson businesses have embraced the technology BY SEAN ORTH @seanaustinorth

The hipsters of the 2000s no longer have domain over the coolness of retro technology; the regular use of record players, polaroid cameras and old gaming consoles, among many other antiquated technologies, has made its way into the mainstream. But with a society so set on finding the next best gadgets and software, where does this popular resurgence in old technology come from? Perhaps the most popular of these retro technologies are those that play recorded music. According to a Fortune article from April of 2016, vinyl record sales are at a 28-year high. Part of this is because of the popularity of the nationwide Record Store Day—which first took place in 2008—aimed to bring customers back into record stores to purchase and appreciate the old medium.

Of course, pop culture soon got hold of the hipster torch and vinyl records became ubiquitous in mainstream music and entertainment stores across the country. While this trend is still on the rise, Tucson has had a quirky love for antique items and technology for quite some time. Just take a stroll down Fourth Avenue or drive around midtown and Tucson’s love for all things retro becomes apparent. In addition to the many local record shops, such as Wooden Tooth Records and Old Paint Records, Tucson is home to a record label that only produces and sells its music on cassette tapes. The label, Baby Tooth, started producing and representing local talent in 2016. “The reason we started the label, in general, was that we wanted to help local bands release their music in a physical format,” said Jacob Sullivan, cofounder of Baby Tooth. “Anyone can put out an album digitally

and share it that way, which is great, but as a musician, there is something really gratifying about having a physical object— be it a cassette, vinyl record or CD—that is a tangible result of your hard work in songwriting and recording.” Sullivan said he and his co-founder Mark Addington decided to sell the labels’ music through cassettes because they are inexpensive to produce and support the long-lasting resilience of this outdated medium. “I would say that there’s definitely a trendiness to retro technology, which is why a lot of people get into things like vinyl or even cassettes,” Sullivan said. Whether it be from nostalgic or trendiness, Baby Tooth has found a welcoming embrace from the Tucson music community. Another local business, Stereo Hospital, has been a long time supporter of old technology. Located inside of Metro

Gnome Music at 4044 E. Speedway Blvd., this repair shop has repaired and sold retro music technology for 16 years. “There’s still quite a bit of demand for analog stuff, especially people wanting to get back into their old devices,” said Hunter Barton, an associate at Stereo Hospital. Stereo Hospital repairs anywhere from three to six stereos per day and the business has only seen an increase in demand by riding the tidal wave of old media nostalgia.

Like Addington, Barton said that a major draw to turntables is the different sound from digital audio. Analog media might offer a preferable sound to some, but is this aesthetic preference the main reason why a record player sat at the top of so many teens’ Christmas lists this year? currently has over 2,000 turntables for sale, and not to mention over 1 million vinyl records.

Despite its growing popularity, some young people aren’t fans of this newfound obsession—and consequent capitalization—of nostalgic technology. “The majority of the appeal to retro tech stems from a natural instinct to embrace the cultural era of that of parents,” said Chris Rosenberg, a prebusiness sophomore. “Seeing their nostalgic responses creates a sense of desire to reciprocate those feelings. Retro technologies go hand in hand with trends such as vintage fashion and style.” Rosenberg said, while record players and polaroid cameras are cute and have novelty in their own right, they are ultimately inefficient in a time when we expect technology to work for us. But with the potential for disarray on streaming sites, analog technology can be a reprieve from the ability to change

The making of a memorable meal Staff members from Fourth Avenue restaurants explain what they do to make their customers’ dining experiences stand out BY AVA GARCIA @ava_garcia1

The perfect dining experience can be hard to find. Between the food, the service and the atmosphere of the restaurant, a multitude of aspects have to come together to make a restaurant experience stand out. Several UA community members weighed in on what exactly makes a trip to a restaurant memorable and worth repeating. Staff members from several restaurants on Fourth Avenue also shared what they think makes their respective restaurants an experience for customers. Josh Henley, the general manager of Magpies Gourmet Pizza on Fourth Avenue, said the “combination of the entire environment” of a restaurant may be what makes a dining experience memorable. “Some people come just for the food; some people come for the family experience,” he said. Several characteristics of the food at Magpie’s make the restaurant memorable for customers, Henley said. The restaurant uses fresh produce, makes its dough and sauce in-house and offers gluten-free and vegan options on its menu. Magpies was named Best Pizza by the Tucson Weekly from 1999 to 2007. Henley named “The Magpie” pizza as a memorable meal offered at the restaurant. It’s made with ricotta in the pizza sauce, giving it more of what Henley called a lasagna taste. William Vail, an engineering freshman, said he liked the patio at Magpies. When it comes to what makes a meal at a restaurant memorable, he said the people you’re with play a large role. “Obviously if the food’s good, that helps, but you can have pretty average food, and as long as you have really great friends with you it’s a pretty great time,” Vail said.


a song, album or artist with the touch of a finger. “I think the experience of listening to an album is hugely determined by how you’re listening to it,” Sullivan said. “You are forced to listen to the entire album, one side at a time, beginning to end. Most musicians put a huge amount of thought into the sequencing of


COOKIES SIT IN A display at The B Line on Fourth Avenue on Thursday, Jan. 12. The B Line serves a variety of pastries and desserts in addition to all three meals.

The availability of options is an important quality for many dinners. Vegetarian options are considered a strong point at La Indita, a family-owned restaurant featuring a fusion of Mexican and Native American food on Fourth Avenue, according to Meleena Velez, who works frequently in the restaurant and is the granddaughter of the owner. Longtime La Indita customer Lisa Stage, a marketing specialist in the office of the Chief Information Officer at the UA, mentioned vegetarian options as something that stood out to her about the restaurant. Vegetarianfriendly dishes include potato tacos and mushroom enchiladas. The restaurant was

tracks and how songs are arranged together, and with a cassette, you really get to hear the album as the artist intended.” The entire experience of purchasing music seems to have become lost among the digitization of music; the liner notes, the album art and the part of the collection of a piece of music can disappear with digital music, according to Sullivan. Regardless of the purpose for owning retro

technology, continual use of it is bound to lead to a newfound appreciation and possibly a new aesthetic preference. “Even if you get into records (or cassettes) because of the trendiness factor, you start to become addicted to the pleasure that comes from owning and appreciating music in these analog formats and become a part of the music lovers’ cult,” Sullivan said.

named Best Mexican Food for Vegetarians in 2009 by the Tucson Weekly. “There’s a lot of Mexican restaurants that don’t have that option,” Velez said. “We don’t use any lard in our beans or chicken broth in our rice, so I think that’s a big seller for a lot of vegetarian/vegan people.” Stage, who has been coming to La Indita for 25 years, said the restaurant has fantastic salsa and named delicious food as an important part of making a meal memorable. Stage also said a family feel from the people working at the restaurant was important and she saw this quality at La Indita. The restaurant, which has been

open since 1985, incorporates family recipes like the chicken enchiladas with green sauce, which Velez said came from her grandmother. They also incorporate elements of Native American cuisine because Velez’s grandfather is Tohono O’odham, Velez said. “A lot of people like that it’s family owned and operated,” she said. “They feel like family when they come in. A lot of them know our names. It’s a very community-driven place.” Atmosphere plays a role in what makes a meal at The B Line on Fourth Avenue stand out, according to customers Julianne Vice, a pre-physiology junior, and Michelle Reading, an early childhood education senior. Rose Crocker, a lead server at The B Line, said service at the restaurant is quick because people come up to the front and order, sit down and receive their food from servers at their table. The restaurant was named Best Casual Downtown Breakfast by the Tucson Weekly several times, most recently in 2010. “We also make everything really quickly so people don’t have to wait very long for their food, and that makes people happy and come in and out,” Crocker said. “We also have wine and beer so people can drink and hang out if they want to, and they can get pretty much everything—breakfast, lunch, dinner, dessert, just a cookie, coffee, pretty much anything.” Reading said variety is important in making a restaurant experience memorable, and Vice said she liked that B Line’s menu offered a range of dishes from Mexican food to Italian food to salad. Crocker said B Line’s fish taco plate is the most popular dish at the restaurant. “It’s hard to find healthy, good fish tacos because we don’t deep fry them like most places do,” Crocker said. “They’re really fresh and made from scratch, and they’re really good.”
