said Smoker. Students who may be experiencing financial troubles with college expenses might find help through TRiO. “The purpose is to get students into and through college,” said Smoker. Information about TRiO has been through word of mouth. Smoker said he would use the word “family” to describe the staff and 170 students admitted into the program last term. “TRiO bends over backwards to help students meet their requirements,” said Rob Carriaga, TRiO achievement coach. Student clients have

Tutors working at TRiO have all been instructors at CNM and are able to tutor in subjects ranging from Math 930 to upperlevel Physics. Hope Leyva, a student using the office, said she finds the TRiO tutors helpful.

Part-time CHSS instructor Robert Anderson said that public policy, transparency and accountability have been very important to him and that as a public institution, CNM should be run in the interest of the public and not for the interest of the local private sector. He said that he and other professionals are hired at CNM as parttime faculty and staff, and the pay rates included in the online posting of names and wages are not accurately reported. “I have been to many Governing Board meetings, and not once has this issue of transparency been discussed openly,” said Anderson. Part-time faculty and staff can be expected to work up to 40 hours a week including class preparation and student assistance. However, the employee contract legend provided on the website does not include that time for parttime employees, he said. Previously on the CNM website, job titles and salaries for each position were posted without the employee names, said CHSS Admin-Support Specialist Hector Navorro. The staff and faculty directory gave public access to all CNM employees’ names and their titles. Now that the college is putting together all employees’ financial information in one spot, the exact hourly

wages of employees gives the public more personal access to financial data than is needed, he said. “I don’t see how it is helpful for somebody to have access to employee names and wages, but because we do work for an educational institution we have to have our records open to the public,” said Navarro. The decision to post the names and wages of all CNM faculty and staff online has received mixed reviews from employees. Some are congratulating the administration for being transparent, others feel ambivalent because CNM employees are part of a public institution and some are upset about losing financial privacy, said CNM President Kathie Winograd. The college has been sent open records requests for some time, from both internal and external sources, asking that names of faculty and staff members be added to the publicly accessible salary list, she said. “The decision to post names with corresponding salaries was made so that we could move past the issue of transparency of public access to information and the community could return its focus to the great things the college is doing for our students and our community,” said Winograd. Full-time CHSS instructor Patrick Houlihan said he is of two minds on the wages being posted; see

E DI T OR I A L

Go team U.S.A. People have begun to catch on to the trend of buying American-made products. It is inportant to be aware of the processes by which the products we consume were created, where they came from and what they may be supporting . With this knowlege, societies can take an active hand in shaping their cultures around the world, and make sure their dollars are well spent. Last week the United States Olympic Committee was denounced for buying Team U.S.A. uniforms from the American company Ralph Lauren, because the garments were manufactured in China. America is in the midst of a complete economic downturn and our country needs all the support possible. It has become nearly impossible to find clothing, appliances, electronics or nearly anything else not made in a foreign country. Many of these countries also have oppressive governments with an economy based on American consumer spending. Factories still exist around the world that violate labor laws and keep employees in sweatshop conditions. India, Mexico and China have repeated reports of infringement of health and safety regulations, child labor laws, as

well as harassment of workers. Although India technically abandoned the caste system in 1947 with the Indian Independence Act, the norm of the caste system is upheld throughout their society. The trend of power remaining in the hands of the upper classes is common in many cultures while the lower classes continue to have their basic rights abused. Buying American is an easy way to take matters into our own hands. Spending a small amount of time reading product tags is hardly inconvenient, and an easy way to make a big impact. It is more than just not buying products made from China. Consumer product manufacturing is being outsourced to places all over the world. Mass producers are cashing in on habitual consumers who are not aware they are being tricked into buying products that were made to break after a year of use. Producers have already begun to respond to the expanding subculture of American consumers who make it a point to buy U.S.A. made products. This is an easy trend to follow and will continue to grow in value for all members of American society.

A superstitious soiree Local tattoo parlor offers affordable ink By Jodie Darrell Staff Reporter

All is One Tattoo Shop has a special tradition for Friday the 13th: tattoos. The shop offers an entire flip book of tattoo samples — called flash — for customers to choose from. Every tattoo includes the number 13; some are hidden in the tattoo, while others stand out. The CNM Chronicle stopped in to chat with some of the artists and customers to get their thoughts on the tradition. Torrie Bustamante, tattoo artist and former CNM student, Albuquerque, NM What tattoo shop are you from? “All is One.” Why did you get into tattooing? “It’s always been something that I’ve been interested since I saw my dad’s military tattoo. When I got into to high school I got into art and body modification. That evolved into tattoos.” What do you think about the Friday the 13th tattoo tradition? “I think it’s awesome. It feels really cool to be a part of it. The thirteen thing has always been a like tattoo culture type subject. It’s awesome that my boss puts it on and is one of the main shops that do it. He does it really well.” What’s your favorite piece you have tattooed? “A big black death moth.” How many tattoos do you have? “Over 20.”

Freddie Arroyo, tattoo artist, Denver, CO

What tattoo shop are you from? “Fallen Owl Tattoos” Why did you get into tattooing? “I had a lot of friends who pushed me into it and wanted me to tattoo. It was something I never really felt comfortable doing, so I would say tattooing kind of found me. I don’t think I got into it, it got into me.” What do you think about the Friday the 13th tattoo tradition? “This is my first one; everybody seems pretty pumped and excited. It’s insane that there is already a line of people outside.” What’s your favorite piece you have tattooed? “It was one of my first portraits. It was a Frankenstein portrait.” How many tattoos do you have? “ About 15 pieces.”

Josh “Dank” Romero, tattoo artist, Albuquerque, NM What tattoo shop are you from? “Por Vida” Why did you get into tattooing? “I was working for the city and I went to Alonzo Rodriguez’s shop and got tattooed from him. I was always drawing and he asked me if I wanted to be an apprentice. Something like that, right away I jumped on it and left the job. I became a full-time apprentice.” What do you think about the Friday the 13th tattoo tradition? “I love it. There is nothing like it out here.” What’s your favorite piece you have tattooed? “I did a tattoo of my friend’s son’s name that he drew himself. It was really childlike.” How many tattoos do you have? “Probably about 45.”

Rafael Marte, tattoo artist, Bronx, NY What tattoo shop are you from? “Morris Park Ink.” Why did you get into tattooing? “Somebody pushed me into being a tattoo artist that was looking for an apprentice. Bwattoo tradition? “I think it’s really cool because it exposes people that normally wouldn’t get tattoos to come through. I like it.” What’s your favorite piece you have tattooed? “I did an old Harley Davidson Knucklehead with a mechanic girl sitting on the motorcycle.” How many tattoos do you have? “If you count one of my legs as one, I would say about 15.”

Lisa Neil, customer Why are you getting a tattoo for Friday the 13th? “Because it’s $13.” What are you getting? “I have no clue, I am gonna pick it right when I get up there.” What do you think about the Friday the 13thth tattoo tradition? “I didn’t know there was a tradition. I think it’s awesome though.” How many tattoos do you have? “I would say about 30.”

Gerald Herrera, customer and former CNM student Why are you getting a tattoo for Friday the 13th? “Because I love tattoos.” What are you getting? “Probably some Day of the Dead skulls.” What do you think about the Friday the 13thth tattoo tradition? “I think it’s really cool. It’s different. It’s fun because they are having a block party.” How many tattoos do you have? “Right now I have seven.”

Patrick Gonzales, customer and former CNM student Why are you getting a tattoo for Friday the 13th? “It’s my last Friday the 13th in town, might as well remember it.” What are you getting? “I’m getting a horseshoe on one foot and a black rose on the other.” What do you think about the Friday the 13th tattoo tradition? “I love it.” How many tattoos do you have? “15”

Katlyn Mcginn, customer and former CNM student Why are you getting a tattoo for Friday the 13th? “I’ve always had good luck on Friday the 13th, so I figured: why not add a little more to it?” What are you getting? “I think I’m gonna get a little voodoo doll with the 13 on his tummy.” What do you think about the Friday the 13thth tattoo tradition? “It’s a new thing to me. I have only been in Albuquerque for two years and I had never heard of this anywhere else. It’s pretty cool. I like it and it stirs up business. How many tattoos do you have? “This will be my third tattoo.”

Hand-made American pottery lines the walls and shelves in the storefront of Not Made In China Pottery Studio and Gallery.

Not Made In China makes it in America Local business combats imported goods By Bradley Pearson Production Manager

short distance from CNM’s main campus lie the roots of a revolution in American craft. Not Made In China Pottery Studio and Gallery aims to bring quality production back to the United States, said proprietor Patrick Trujillo. Not Made In China provides locals with Americanmade goods and teaches people how to make those goods themselves rather than buying products made

in China, said Trujillo. “We want to end corporate enslavement,” he said. Trujillo said that he started Not Made In China four years ago as a private studio, offering lessons and apprenticeships. “We opened up to the public about a year and a half ago,” Trujillo said. The studio’s public interaction ranges from pottery lessons for beginners, to memberships for artists to have access to the studio. Memberships range from $100 per month to $350 per month, with different benefits for each price range. The interior walls of the building are covered from floor to ceiling in original artwork on consignment from local artists. Pottery by members and students fills the shelves. In the back of the studio there is a kitchen where members bring and cook food for patrons and other members. “Use of the kitchen is also included in the membership,” said Trujillo. Instructors at Not Made In China are volunteers who exchange public lessons for membership benefits, said Trujillo. Pottery instructor Eduardo Ladios said he has been working in pottery for more than 10 years and volunteers his time at the studio. “The owners have been very generous, and I think it’s a great thing that

they’re doing,” Ladios said. Ladios started out making pottery for commercial purposes, but felt the competition from products made in china, he said. The products that Americans buy from China are often cheaper than the raw materials needed to make them in the United States. “I wish there was more support from big businesses for traditional art forms,” Ladios said. “There’s simply no equal ground for competition.” Getting the community involved is a major part of what Not Made In China is about, said co-owner Marie Gardner. The studio offers a Clay Date lesson, which is two and a half hours long, includes materials and instruction for two and covers either hand building or wheel throwing, said Gardner. The Sushi Date lesson is similar, but patrons create a sake bottle, cup, sushi plate and a sauce dish per person, according to Not Made In China’s website. The studio offers both the lesson packages and lessons at an hourly rate as well for all skills levels, said Gardner. Not Made In China Pottery Studio and Gallery is located at 1001 Yale Blvd SE, at the corner of Yale and Avenida Cesar Chavez. Students receive a 10 percent discount.

TRiO

Continued from Page 1

TRiO is not an abbreviation, said Smoker. The title represents the three divisions: the Educational Talent Search, Upward Bound and the Student Support Services branch of TRiO that helps CNM students today. These programs are designed to help students from ages 12 to 25, said Smoker. The first of the programs began in 1965, according to the TRiO handbook. At one time, multibillionaire and CEO of Harpo Productions, Oprah Winfrey, was a member of TRiO’s Upward Bound branch. “What CNM provides to the program shows that we’re well-respected,” said Smoker. Smoker said the TRiO office is in the brainstorming stage of a 10-year anniversary celebration in support of the cooperation and appreciation between CNM and TRiO.

“Isaiah Gallegos actually sits with you and shows you how to do your homework. You get overwhelmed. Here they can help you, where at the SRC you can get help with one problem,” said Leyva. Because of TRiO, Leyva said she was able to become president of the student organization, TRiO Achievement Group. TAG, an association created by the students, recently finished working on a Roadrunner food drive, said Leyva, who has been in TRiO for three years. Thirty-five members of the student group worked with other Albuquerque organizations to package food on June 8 and separated 2,000 pounds of rice to help the local community, she said.

Wages

there is a level at which information should be private but that the public should know where and how taxpayers’ money is being spent at a public institution. “I grew up in an era where it was personally and socially impolite to ask someone how much money someone made. However, I personally have no problem with my salary information being posted online, as I do work for a public institution,” Houlihan said. Part of the struggle over publicizing information such as CNM’s employee financial data is that pay scales do not represent everything that CNM employees do on a daily basis, so what is shown on the online wages can be confusing, said Houlihan.

CNM’s policy regarding employee information requests is that they must go through the Marketing and Communications Office, which handles all public relations for the school he said. Now that the school is posting public information online, the community has put pressure on CNM to reveal even more, said Winograd. Members of the community began to ask why CNM did not post employees’ names along with associated wages as APS and UNM did in November, she said. To view CNM financial information containing names of employees with associated wages, visit cnm.edu/about/ financial/index.php.

(from left) Keith “Green Lanter” Decker, Miles “Batman” Blackman, Danielle “Wonder Woman” Prince, Noel “Flash” Green and Tye “Green Arrow” O’Dell pose at the 2012 Albuquerque Comic Expo.

Tye “Green Arrow” O’Dell Why did you join?

I wanted to join because it’s elitist. I love

the idea of being elitist and being THE Green Arrow of New Mexico.”

Why did you choose this character?

“ “

G reen Arrow’s awesome.”

What’s your favorite comic book moment of Green Arrow?

There’s a bunch. It’s hard. When he and

Hal Jordan join forces and get their own book together. That was great. Anytime he and Bruce Wayne butt heads. I love those moments. When he and Black Canary got married. That’s about it.”

By Jyllian said Blackman. The current roster “Lois Lane” includes Blackman, Noel Roach “Flash” Green, Tye “Green Managing Arrow” O’Dell, Danielle Editor “Wonder Woman” Prince and New Mexico is no CNM English major Keith longer at the mercy of mon- “Green Lantern” Decker. The sters, villains and other group has recently inducted a ne’er-do-wells — the Hawkman as well. The group Justice League of America formed in 2011, when Green has opened a headquarters in first met Blackman, he said. Both wanted to form a Albuquerque and the group is ready to take on the state’s group similar to the national Justice League non-profit deadliest supervillains. The Justice League of group, but wanted to limit America – New Mexico is the group to one member a not for profit group. The per character, rather than the members dress up as the looser regulations of that orgaiconic D.C. comics super- nization which allow multiple heroes for whom they are portrayers of the same characnamed, said Miles “Batman” ter, said Green. “We love costuming and Blackman. The group attends charity events and doing charity work,” said makes public appearances, O’Dell. “We all relate to our chosen characters.” said Blackman. The league has been “We’re just a bunch of geeks and we want to give working with the New Mexico back to the community,” chapter of the Make-A-Wish

Keith “Green Lantern” Decker Why did you join?

I didn’t even know about the organization

until I went to Free Comic Book Day. I went to Comic Warehouse and they were there looking for a Superman. I was wearing a Green Lantern shirt and they were like ‘He looks like Ryan Reyonlds, we should approach him.”

Why did you choose this character?

“ “

It’s just me. It’s who I am.”

What’s your favorite comic book moment of Green Lantern?

When Green Lantern punches Batman in

the face.”

Foundation and hopes to have an event coordinated with the foundation before the end of fall, said Blackman. O’Dell and Blackman will go to Artesia at the beginning of August to spend some time with a little boy named Mateo who has cancer, said Blackman. “Anything to make the kids smile,” said Blackman. In terms of public events, the group will be in costume at the Century Rio 24 this Thursday from 10 p.m. to midnight for the premiere of “The Dark Knight Rises.” Members will also attend the “Who’s Your Superhero?” event at the Santa Fe Children’s Museum in August, said Green. The JLA is currently looking for new members – Superman, Aquaman, Captain Marvel, Hawkgirl and Black Canary. Anyone interested can apply via the group Facebook page, facebook.com/JLAofNM.

Noel “Flash” Green Why did you join?

I like the idea of being THE Flash of

New Mexico. I liked the idea of taking on the character.”

Why did you choose this character?

“ I

was watching the Justice League cartoon with my two-year-old and she said ‘Daddy, that’s you.’ I’ve always loved the Flash and I started looking at pictures of him and realized I really do look like him.”

What’s your favorite comic book moment of The Flash?

Ilove it any time he ends up saving everybody.”

Miles “Batman” Blackman Why did you join?

“ “ “

I joined because I wanted to make a

difference.”

Why did you choose this character?

I am Batman.”

What’s your favorite comic book moment of Batman?

I

would have to say “Nightfall,” because it showed how human Bruce was after Bane broke his back. I mean, he’s paralyzed; it took years for him to get back up. And there’s all this espionage happening. When he was healed, we didn’t know he was healed because he was pretending to be someone else. It was just awesome.”
