Board postpones student fee deliberations by Luke Holmen

luke.holmen@gmail.com Despite aims to decrease the amount students pay in fees next year, the Student Fee Review Board voted unanimously Wednesday night to set the minimum fee amount for next year to the same as it is this year. The board unanimously agreed to increase fees from the $460 agreed upon at the outset of the board’s meetings in January to $486.49, the same amount as this year. The board’s final recommendation will likely be a higher dollar amount at the end of its deliberations. The board was unable to agree on how to allocate student fees by the end of Wednesday night’s meeting and adjourned at 10:30 p.m, after four hours of debate. The board plans to reconvene Monday to finish hashing out which student organizations get what amounts. SFRB Vice Chair and ASUNM President Jaymie Roybal said the original dollar amount was not sufficient to fund all of the organizations that support students on campus. “I personally found it hard to make a (budget) for $460,” she said. “I couldn’t make recommendations for all the groups without cutting, and I think a lot of on-campus groups do a lot of good.” SFRB Chair and GPSA President Katie Richardson cautioned the board to consider the cost to students before raising fees. She said the board has spent 25 hours listening to hearings from organizations that requested funding, which might cloud the board’s judgment on what amount is appropriate to charge students in fees. “What we haven’t spent is 25 hours over the last month considering student pocketbooks,” she said. Despite Richardson’s concerns, the board voted unanimously to raise the fee amount. Board member and ASUNM Chief of Staff Cassie Thompson said SFRB has become a last resort

Thompson said students want more services and lower fees at the same time, which is impossible.

“Students (complain) about cut hours at the libraries, or at Johnson, or printing, but they complain student fees are too high,” she said. “The question is, ‘What is more important, students paying a little more fees, or having a little more money in their pocketbook to pay the rent?’” The board made non-binding allocations for 10 of the 27 student organizations for next year, funding every group for the full amount requested. Most of the organizations

reviewed were organizations requesting small amounts of funding. If the group continues to fund organizations at the full amount, student fees could rise to as much as $715 per student. But the board members agreed keeping student fees as low as possible was a priority. “When it came to actually putting numbers, I think something more reasonable is closer to $500, but … we do need to keep in mind students are paying (for this),” said Dylan Hoffman, board member and

ASUNM Chief Justice. The group plans to vote on funding for each organization twice before deciding its final recommendation: once to determine an ideal amount of funding, and a second time to bring total student fees down by deciding which organizations will take a cut. The board debated on how much to fund organizations including the UNM Children’s Campus, which provides day care and family support

State budget, new funding formula pass House by Alexandra Swanberg aswanny@unm.edu

The state budget (House Bill 2) passed unanimously in the House Wednesday night. The Higher Education Funding Formula for the State of New Mexico will change from an enrollment-based system to a performancebased system, which supporters of the change said will give UNM additional funds and raise graduation rates. The new funding formula allocates funds according to the number of courses completed by students and the number of students that graduate. Previously, the formula was based on the number of students enrolled. Rep. Ray Begaye (D, Shiprock) said the new formula provides universities with more incentive to increase retention and graduation rates. “I know from the students coming into the

higher education setting, two years or four years, there’s been some indicators that students do drop out, so there’s a greater loss when students drop out of higher ed and complete at other schools,” he said. “This funding formula fixes it.” Richard Jones is a House Appropriations and Finance analyst. He said UNM’s appropriation, $284.6 million for fiscal year 2013, is 5.7 percent more than the current fiscal year. The committee allocated $749.3 million for higher education institutions, a 5.4 percent increase from the last fiscal year. This appropriation also included a $1 million increase for the Health Sciences Center. Of the total higher education budget, $29 million was allocated for the new funding formula, which awards universities based on student course completion and the number of degrees and certificates granted in the past academic year.

Jones said $15.5 million was awarded to universities based on student course completion, and $13.5 million was awarded based on the total number of certificates and degrees awarded by universities in the past academic year. Other Notable Bills SB 21, if passed, would fund $835,000 monthly, or an estimated $10 million annually, from gross receipts tax, to promote energy technology, industry and education growth. If passed, a committee created by the Senate will manage the fund and decide how to spend the allocation. SB 16, if passed, would give a $5,000 credit to companies to hire New Mexico graduates within 18 months of their graduation by enacting “new sections of the income tax act and the corporate income and franchise tax

act,” according to the bill, creating incentive for state businesses to hire New Mexico graduates. Sen. Carlos Cisneros, D-Questa, said UNM students have done an exceptional job lobbying in favor of the bill, and said he believes it will pass easily. HB 35 requires agendas for public meetings to be posted 72 hours before the scheduled meeting. It passed unanimously in the House Health and Government Affairs Committee on Tuesday and goes before a vote of the House floor. This means that meetings hosted by the regents, ASUNM, GPSA, and other organizations would be required to adhere to this law Rep. Jim Hall ,R-Los Alamos, said one attendee at the HHGAC hearing expressed concern that the bill will prevent last minute agenda items from being added, a problem for committees that meet only a few times a year. Hall said he did not see this as an issue.

Another state for gay marriage by Rachel La Corte The Associated Press

OLYMPIA, Wash. — Washington state lawmakers voted to approve gay marriage Wednesday, setting the stage for the state to become the seventh in the nation to allow samesex couples to wed. The action comes a day after a federal appeals court declared California’s ban on gay marriage unconstitutional, saying it was a violation of the civil rights of gay and lesbian couples. The Washington House passed the bill on a 55-43 vote. Supporters in the public viewing galleries stood and cheered as many on the Democratic side of the House floor hugged after the vote. The state Senate approved the measure last week, and the bill now goes to Democratic Gov. Chris Gregoire, who is expected to sign it into law next week. Gregoire issued a statement after the vote, saying it was “a major step toward completing a long and important journey to end discrimination based on sexual orientation.” Democratic Rep. Jamie Pedersen, a gay lawmaker from Seattle who has sponsored gay rights bills in the House for several years, said domestic partnership laws the state has had for years are “a pale and inadequate substitute for marriage.” Pedersen, during his remarks on the House floor, read from Tuesday’s ruling by the San Francisco-based 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals, citing a section that stated “marriage is the name that society gives to the relationship that matters most between two adults.” Several Republicans argued against the bill, saying that it goes against the tradition of marriage. Rep. Jay Rodne said the measure “severs the cultural, historical and legal underpinnings of the

institution of marriage.” Despite the action, gay couples can’t begin walking down the aisle just yet. The proposal would take effect 90 days after the session ends next month, but opponents have promised to fight gay marriage with a ballot measure that would allow voters to overturn the legislative approval. If opponents gather enough signatures to take their fight to the ballot box, the law would be put on hold pending the outcome of a November election. Opponents must turn in more than 120,000 signatures by June 6 if they want to challenge the proposed law. Otherwise gay couples could wed starting in June. Two Republicans crossed the aisle and voted in favor of the bill. Three Democrats voted against it. Democrats hold a 56-42 majority in the House. Washington state has had domestic partnership laws since 2007, and more than a dozen other states have provisions, ranging from civil unions to gay marriage, supporting same-sex couples. Gay marriage is legal in New York, Connecticut, Iowa, Massachusetts, New Hampshire, Vermont and Washington D.C. Lawmakers in New Jersey are expected to vote on gay marriage next week, and Maine could see a gay marriage proposal on the November ballot. Proposed amendments to ban gay marriage will be on the ballots in North Carolina in May and in Minnesota in November. A three-judge panel of the 9th Circuit ruled Tuesday against California’s voter-approved same-sex marriage ban, known as Proposition 8. The panel gave gay marriage opponents time to appeal the 2-1 decision before ordering the state to allow same-sex weddings to resume.

The Daily Lobo

The judges also said the decision only applies to California, even though the court has jurisdiction in nine western states. Lawyers for the coalition of conservative religious groups that sponsored Proposition 8 said they have not decided if they will seek a new 9th Circuit hearing or file an appeal directly to the U.S. Supreme Court. Washington state’s momentum for same-sex marriage has been building and the debate has changed significantly since 1998, when lawmakers passed Washington’s Defense of Marriage Act banning gay marriage. The constitutionality of that law ultimately was upheld by the state Supreme Court in 2006. But earlier that year, a gay civil rights measure passed after nearly 30 years of failure, signaling a change in the Legislature. The quick progression of domestic partnership laws in the state came soon after, with a domestic partnership law in 2007, and two years of expansion that culminated in 2009 with an “everything but marriage” expansion that was upheld by voters. In October, a University of Washington poll found that an increasing number of people in the state support same-sex marriage. About 43 percent of respondents said they support gay marriage, up from 30 percent in the same poll five years earlier. Another 22 percent said they support giving identical rights to gay couples, without calling the unions “marriage.” If a challenge to gay marriage law was on the ballot, 55 percent said they would vote to uphold the law. And 38 percent said they would vote to reject a gay marriage law. Same-sex marriage also has the backing of several prominent Pacific Northwest businesses, including Microsoft, Nike and Starbucks.

Letter Mexico not most unsafe place to study abroad Editor, UNM students should very carefully consider study and travel in Mexico. I still advocate study in Mexico, but only in very controlled circumstances — circumstances that will curtail UNM students’ engagement with all of the valuable experiences that were once possible in the country. I ardently hope for the day that security is restored. In the ‘80s to around the mid ‘90s, security for those living and traveling in Mexico was broadly comparable to the U.S. For example, in this era, UNM students could travel within Ciudad Juárez with no more concerns than driving across Albuquerque. Travel across Mexico overland was similarly safe and almost incident-free. Some UNM students even hitchhiked safely across Mexico to study-abroad venues. Travel incidents usually involved issues with food and drink, rather than crime and insecurity. The mid ‘90s brought the appreciable deterioration of security in Mexico, and the rapid and sustained increase in the dangers of travel within Mexico. During this time frame, burglary gave way to overt robbery. Violent assaults became more common against foreigners. Thefts increased. Armed encounters between insurgent and criminal groups against the Mexican authorities began to take root. Resistance during robberies began to lead to ever more violent escalation and, in some cases, the deaths of U.S. citizens. These events now serve as the baseline of criminal incidents in Mexico; this became and still is “the new normal” in Mexico.  For example, Mexico City is cited as “safe” by many. Mexico City, according to officials, has a lower murder rate than some U.S. cities. This may be true, but I would hazard to state that the rates of violent muggings, robberies and other criminal assaults are most likely not comparable with any U.S. city. While students may feel “safe” in Mexico, the facts are that they are not as “safe” as they would have been in years past. One can travel to Mexico, and it’s probable nothing bad will happen during a visit.  The real risks to travelers and students are the highly unpredictable and ruthless outcomes of crime — outcomes that were nearly unheard of in decades past. The best public resources for UNM students, in addition to official UNM advisories, are the U.S. State Department Travel Warnings, as they have proven to be disconcertingly accurate in predicting the locations of the manifestations of extreme violence against U.S. citizens. Also, while there is not an official U.S. Travel Warning outstanding, the UNM community should be aware of the recent — and even more rapid and deadly — surge in violence in Guatemala, Honduras and El Salvador. UNM should suspend any and all university-sanctioned travel and study to these nations. Mark A. Ortega UNM alumnus

Dr. Peg’s Prescription Limit cane sugar and high fructose corn syrup in your diet “Whether it’s corn sugar or cane sugar, your body can’t tell the difference. Sugar is sugar.” This is from a commercial by the Corn Refiners Association, the people who make high fructose corn syrup. It is one of many they put out in response to the recent swell of opinion against their product. Their golden goose is in jeopardy, so they are trying to protect the precious profit egg, asserting that their kind of sugar is just the same as any other kind, and therefore benign. It’s a clever little claim, but is it true? High fructose corn syrup was developed in the 1960s in Japan, and made its way to the U.S. in the 1970s. It is made by spinning corn kernels with enzymes that break them up and rearrange them into a thick syrup that is very sweet and very durable. It is also very cheap, a key factor in the explosion of its use in our country. Most high fructose corn syrup consists of 55 percent fructose, 42 percent glucose and 3 percent other sugar-like molecules. Table sugar, also known as sucrose, the “cane sugar” in the commercials, is 50 percent fructose and 50 percent glucose. High fructose corn syrup is sweeter than sucrose, probably due to the extra fructose, which by itself is far sweeter than glucose. So technically, they are not exactly the same, although, as you will see, the devil is not in the difference. High fructose corn syrup is a man-made substance, has those extra molecules in it and doesn’t hang together as tightly as the nature-made and naturally bonded sucrose. These factors may prove to matter eventually, but in essence, and as much as it vexes me to agree with a commercial, the corn growers are correct. Now, wait. That does not mean high fructose corn syrup is good for you. It is not. But neither is sucrose. Both corn sugar and cane sugar harbor the fugitive fructose, and it turns out this little rascal wreaks havoc on your body. To under-

stand, we first have to look at glucose, the innocent bystander. Glucose is the building block of life. Every cell in your body uses it. Our bodies are designed to manage glucose. When we eat glucose, most of it is used right away, some is stored, and a small amount becomes fat. Glucose is handled by the hormone insulin, which transfers glucose out of the blood and into the tissues where it is used. This is what happens to about 80 percent of the glucose you ingest. The other 20 percent goes to the liver, where it is either stored as glycogen, to be mobilized back into glucose as needed, or metabolized further. Glucose also stimulates the production of leptin, a hormone that tells us we have had enough to eat, and it suppresses ghrelin, a hormone that tells us we’re hungry. Don’t you love those names? I can just see a leprechaun-like leptin. “That’s enough now, laddie. Up from the table with ye.” A few hours later, the growling ghrelin wakes up. “Grrr! Food! Must have food!” But I digress. Fructose is another story. Fructose does not interact with hormones. If you are hungry, which your body knows by high levels of ghrelin, you can pour fructose down your throat all day and not feel satisfied. The growling ghrelin prowls while the leptin leprechaun slumbers. Meanwhile, you have another soda. And another. One might even venture the word “addiction” when speaking of sugary drinks and foods. Fructose doesn’t connect with insulin either, so instead of going into your tissues, all the fructose goes into the liver, the body’s ultimate filter and processor. There, it is turned into all kinds of nasty stuff such as uric acid and fat. Uric acid increases blood pressure and causes gout. Fat damages the liver and makes it resistant to insulin, resulting in higher levels of insulin in the blood. Higher insulin in the blood goes to the brain, and

blinds the brain to leptin. Blinds, not binds. The poor leprechaun can jump up and down and do a jig, and nobody sees him. High insulin also leads eventually to insulin resistance, weight gain and diabetes. I’m telling you, fructose is fraught with peril. But wait, you say. Fructose is natural, the sugar of fruit. How can it be so terrible? You’re right. It is in fruit, and if you eat it that way it is much safer. This is because fruit is full of fiber, and fiber is your friend. Fiber decreases absorption of sugar and speeds your gut along, propelling contents into the part of the small intestine that helps signal fullness. It also inhibits the absorption of some free fatty acids until they get to the colon, where bacteria change them into more useful forms that actually suppress insulin. Fructose in fruit is fine. But we don’t eat much of it that way. We drink it in sodas, and we eat it in bread, salad dressings, jams, ketchup, cereals and many processed and packaged foods. Try reading some labels next time you’re in the grocery store. You’ll be disgusted. Americans, on average, consume 63 pounds of high fructose corn syrup per person per year. It’s everywhere. No wonder we are an obese nation. Sugar is sugar. Your body can’t tell the difference. This should not reassure you. Sucrose and high fructose corn syrup are both bad for you. Do yourself a favor and slow down on the stuff. The leprechaun will thank you, too. Dr. Peggy Spencer is a student-health physician.

House repeals license act by Russell Contreras The Associated Press

SANTA FE, N.M. — House lawmakers voted Wednesday to repeal a state law that allows undocumented immigrants to obtain driver’s licenses, setting up a showdown with the state Senate where a similar measure died last year. By a vote of 45 to 25, the full 70member House approved the repeal of the law that Republican Gov. Susana Martinez has pushed to end and immigrant rights groups around the state have rallied to defend. But the fate of the bill remains unclear because Democrats, who largely oppose the repeal, hold a stronger majority in the Senate than in the House. Passage of the repeal came after House lawmakers rejected two alternatives that would have allowed undocumented immigrants to hold some sort of state-issued documents to drive in New Mexico. It also followed nearly four hours of debate on the House floor where one Democrat compared repeal supporters to a Nazi propagandist and another representative brought up again that he had received hate mail over his support of keeping the law. However, some House Democrats, including three who voted against the measure last year, crossed over with Republicans to support the repeal over fraud and safety concerns. An analysis by The Associated Press found dozens of the same business and residential addresses were used repeatedly by people to obtain driver’s licenses in New Mexico in a pattern that suggests fraud by immigrants trying to game the system. In one instance, 48 foreign nationals claimed to live at a smoke shop in Albuquerque to get licenses. In another case, more than a dozen claimed to

SFRB

live at an automotive repair shop over a one-year period. New Mexico and Washington are the only states that grant driver’s licenses to undocumented immigrants and others without Social Security numbers. Utah issues a special permit allowing immigrants to drive but, unlike a driver’s license, it doesn’t serve as a widely accepted government-issued form of identification. Rep. Andy Nuñez, a Hatch independent sponsoring a bill backed by the governor, said he never gave up pushing for the bill after he saw a large number of undocumented immigrants outside of New Mexico coming to his town to obtain driver’s licenses two years ago. “They were coming in by the droves, and not just from Mexico,” said Nuñez, who was mayor pro tem in Hatch at the time. Majority Floor Leader Ken Martinez, D-Grants, said there were “good people on both sides of this issue,” including residents concerned about public safety. But he said during hearings lawmakers heard “very human stories” from undocumented immigrants who have used the law to live and work. “People who are for this legislation aren’t necessarily against the immigrant community,” said Martinez, who voted against the bill. “(But) there some very good people out there who live in the shadows.” He presented an alternative measure similar to one in the Senate that will tighten restrictions but still allow the state’s undocumented immigrants to obtain state driver’s licenses. It failed to garner enough votes. Rep. Dennis Roch, R-Texico, said the focus on the Senate proposal took lawmakers’ attention away from the issue of getting people unlawfully in the state off the roads. He called the alternative a “Senate delusion.”

services to students with children. Hoffman argued the organization does not serve as many students as some of the others on the list, as not every student at UNM has children. “I want to fund this organization, but I’m not sure $15 is an appropriate amount, given that it serves a smaller population,” he said. “There may be other organizations that serve more students.” Board member and GPSA Chief of Staff Japji Hundal argued in favor of funding the organization for the full amount. “I know for sure that if this parent gets educated, they will educate their children,” he said. “In serving on this board, I’m not just looking at the present, I’m looking at the future.” Roughly 42 percent of students on campus are responsible for dependents, according to the board. The Children’s Campus was tentatively funded for the full amount. Richardson proposed funding the Center for Academic Program Support (CAPS) an additional $6.42 more than its original request, contingent upon a matching amount from the University. Richardson cited a letter from the organization, which said CAPS could serve additional students if given additional funding. In the letter, CAPS representatives said student demand was high, but that the current number of tutoring hours is not sufficient to meet the demand. Students who participate in tutoring from CAPS do significantly better in their college careers, according to the board discussion. Andrew Cullen, associate vice president for the Budget Office, said requesting matching funding from the University would help provide an avenue for more state funding. The state’s new higher education funding formula, which is currently under debate in the Legislature,

funds schools based on student performance, and looks at graduation and retention rates rather than the number of students enrolled. “I think by doing what Katie (Richardson) is proposing, you are acknowledging the potential that substantial dollars could come through the funding formula and could quadruple the funding coming into UNM.” But Roybal argued that funding an organization above the amount requested is outside of the SFRB’s job description. “I’m all for expanding tutoring services, but we should not make the decisions for organizations,” she said. “They did not request $15 in fees. I would be very uncomfortable doing that and I don’t think there is any other organization on this list that I would double their funding.” The motion to fund CAPS an additional $6.42 failed, but the board tentatively recommended the organization be funded the full requested amount of $9.63 per student. The board agreed that ethnic centers, KUNM, and Student Health and Counseling all contributed a great deal to student success, and tentatively recommended funding the organizations the full amount that each requested without much debate. The group adjourned and will meet Monday to finish the allocation process. The averages will be given to the President’s Strategic Budget Leadership Team by Feb. 15. Official allocations will be released March 1.

Still, Rep. Miguel P. Garcia, D-Albuquerque, continued to make the case that any repeal would make New Mexico roads more dangerous. “Taking licenses away from the immigrant community could mean as many as 85,000 people on the roads without insurance,” said Garcia. He said the repeal also would take immigrant drivers out of law enforcement data bases and said the repeal was based on “hate mongering.” However, William “Bill” Rehm, RAlbuquerque, a retired police officer, said it was unclear that since the passage of the 2003 law that roads were safer. He said New Mexico already allows drivers to use foreign and Mexico driver’s licenses on state roads. Rep. Antonio “Moe” Maestas, an Albuquerque Democrat, went so far to compare repeal supporters to Nazi propagandists for “spreading lies” and played a radio spot by Republicans that said some recently arrested immigrant gang members were found to have New Mexico driver’s licenses. In a statement, immigrant rights group expressed disappointment with the House vote and said they were hopeful that the Senate would not adopt it. They criticized Gov. Martinez for not trying to reach a compromise and avoid another impasse like last year. “It’s sad for all New Mexicans that Gov. Martinez is unwilling to seek middle ground on this issue,” said Elisa Lopez, of Somos Un Pueblo Unido, a Santa Fe-based immigrant advocacy group that has held rallies outside the Statehouse. “She had made it clear that this is not about public safety. It’s about immigration and politics.” Rep. Brian Egolf, D-Santa Fe, predicted that the vote Wednesday will result in no changes to the current law because the Senate won’t support it. He also blasted Gov. Martinez for not offering her support for any compromise.

ArtStreet empowers Albuquerque’s homeless population to make and sell art by Nicole Perez

nicole11@unm.edu A man with one crutch and a cowboy hat winds a piece of wire around a wooden spool at the woodworking table, while two children shove their hands into wet clay at the pottery wheels. A woman with missing teeth puts an old teddy bear into a heart-covered basket and asks, “You like this?” These people are participants at ArtStreet, an open art studio for anyone interested in creating art. At ArtStreet, however, 80 percent of the artists are or were homeless. Jimmy Lujan, an ArtStreet participant who serves as a mentor to newer participants, was homeless for four years. He said ArtStreet saved his life. “My wife was murdered in ‘06, and I ended up on the streets, drinking, doing drugs,” he said. “I lived in parks if I could make it to the park and sleep there. I couldn’t hold a job, I couldn’t do anything. But I found a great therapeutic venue here.” Director Mindy Grossberg said ArtStreet offers an open-ended program so artists have as much freedom as possible. The program, which is part of Albuquerque’s Healthcare for the Homeless, provides integrated health services to the city’s homeless. “We don’t do a lot of focusing on someone’s art and then diagnose them. It’s very different from that,” Grossberg said. “We create a space and allow people to have a relationship, an individual relationship with their art making, and that in itself is therapeutic.” The walls are lined with art, and craft stations include collage, woodworking, painting and writing. Participants have the opportunity to make profit. Some sell their work for anywhere between $1 to $450. While no medium is more popular than another, Grossberg said she sees a lot of painting, collage and found-object art that is especially meaningful to many participants. “This is something that people are throwing away, and you’re re-creating it — you’re shedding new light on it,” she said. “Here are folks who are throwaways to other people, in a sense, and yet they are full, creative beings, creating out of nothing.” Hot food and drinks are provided to participants as long as they spend at least a little bit of time making art. They must also be sober while they are there. Meanwhile, a couple dances in a corner and artists kiss Grossberg’s shaved head as they leave. Some of this closeness is due to shared experiences of hardship, participant Kristen Leve said. Leve was homeless 10 years ago. She now serves on Healthcare for the Homeless’ board of directors. She said ArtStreet helped house her and gave her what she has today. “As homeless people, we tend to come from broken situations, so we all know what that’s like even though we have different experiences,” she said. “We understand what it’s like to not have anything, to have to go somewhere for a free meal, to find somewhere to spend the night.” That closeness is also displayed in the art. A group of hand-painted tiles on the west side of the Healthcare for

Dylan Smith / Daily Lobo Guests and artists alike mingle at an ArtStreet show at The Harwood Art Center last Friday. The show contains hundreds of pieces of work from dozens of homeless and formerly homeless artists. The exhibition runs until Feb 23.

Dylan Smith / Daily Lobo Journey Fischer paints alongside her mother, Jane, in the kids’ corner at ArtStreet on Jan 23. Jane and her three children are homeless. After she gets her eldest children ready for elementary school at 4 a.m., she sometimes comes to ArtStreet with her youngest child, Journey. the Homeless building commemorates more than 100 homeless people who have died. The centerpiece reads, “The streets are silent where your footsteps rang. Now there are no more words. I bring a leaf, a flower and a stone.” Some names: “David Cheeseman” and “Dale Santerre, Halibut Man.” Grossberg said many people come in and out of the space, and she has been closely connected to five or six people who have since died on the streets. “You never know. If someone leaves, are you going to see them again?” she said.

Dylan Smith / Daily Lobo Lois Burks holds up a poem she plans on delivering to the memorial of a recently deceased friend. Burks, who has lost many close friends to homelessness, said, “I think my number is coming up, too.”

Art helps the homeless cope, make extra money by Nicole Perez

nicole11@unm.edu Christopher Edwards started coming to ArtStreet about three months ago. Before then he had never created art. “I never thought about doing anything like this, it never crossed my brain,” he said. “A couple months ago I brought some stuff in, and I didn’t go back for about two weeks. When I came back, everybody applauded, and someone said they sold a couple of my necklaces.

I was floored.” He said he has been making and selling art ever since. “I couldn’t wait to get home and tell all my friends, ‘Hey I sold some stuff,’ instead of it just sitting in my house,” he said. “I’m like, ‘Damn!’ This sounds like something I can get motivated for. And it keeps me out of trouble.” Edwards said he grew up in an area in New Jersey where employment was low and drugs were plentiful. He entered the Vietnam War as a member of the Marine Corps,

where he served from 1968 until when he was discharged due to a bullet injury in 1970. “I got shot, but at least I came home. I was at least on the good side,” he said. He said he then worked for a telegram company, aligning poles across the country. He has severe arthritis and can barely move his fingers. His hands shook as he painted bright blue paint on a leather string necklace.

Mix up chocolate treats for a V-Day sweetie by Alexandra Swanberg aswanny@unm.edu

After dinner with your sweetheart, you may want to go home for dessert. This recipe for chocolate cups, compliments of my grandmother, is sure to please the palette. Better yet, it’s economical: It only requires two ingredients — chocolate and butter. Plus, you can fill it with whatever your heart desires.

Ingredients

6 squares of Baker’s semisweet baking chocolate 2 tablespoons butter 10 large paper baking cups To avoid burning the chocolate, you want to melt it using a double-boiler system. If you don’t have a double-boiler pan, you can improvise. Find a large pot and slightly smaller pot. Boil water in the smaller pot and put the larger one over the top. Add the chocolate and butter. Once melted, remove immediately

from heat and stir until well blended. The mixture should be thick. Use a teaspoon to drop chocolate into the bottom of a baking cup and spread it up the sides. Cover the entire surface of the cup with a thin layer of chocolate. Repeat with all 10 cups. Place cups in muffin tin and chill until firm. About 10 minutes before serving, add a filling of your choice to the cups.

Suggestions

Layer peanut butter or whipped cream and crushed Oreos Ice cream or sorbet Fruit preserves Fresh fruit Chocolate mousse Pudding Tip: If you want to get really cutesy, you can garnish the filled cups with hearts. Take a few strawberries and slice off the sides. Take two slices at an angle to create the heart shape and stick it into the filling deep enough to hold it in place.

Ska band ready for ‘battle’

The “Reagan Motels” are battling not just for the money or love of music, but to keep the beat going in the local ska scene. Musician and UNM student Steven Krum said he isn’t into music for the money; there’s more to it than that. “I wouldn’t say it’s my job as much as it’s what I do — it’s why I get out of bed, not how I pay for

the bed,” he said. Krum is guitarist to local ska band the “Reagan Motels.” He said he and his band mates are on a mission to revitalize Albuquerque’s ska-punk scene. On the way, they’re playing in the Gorilla Battle of the Bands on Sunday at the Launchpad. The top contender is awarded $500 and 20 studio hours. In the early 2000s, more bands played ska shows in Albuquerque, thriving on youth-oriented gigs like “Ska Prom” at the El Rey, guitarist Colin Montgomery said. “They would play on three stages, and hundreds of people would show up — it was really big,” he said. A few years ago, bands stopped playing, fans grew tired of ska and several local venues went out of business, Montgomery said. “It became pretty much just me, Colin (Montgomery) and about five people who would go to ska shows,” Krum said. With their favorite music scene fading away, members of “The Reagan Motels” did the only thing they could do — play the music they love, Krum said. “If I can play music that I enjoy, and can give people who were in the position that I used to be chances to go to fun shows, it’s like bonus points,” drummer William Judd said. Although the lineup is dominated by local hardcore punk

ArtStreet

bands, the “Reagan Motels” said they won’t be too intimidated by the lack of ska fans because they play primarily for their own pleasure. “There’s a deep, deep part in ska’s heart that says, ‘go f*** yourself,’ and unlike metal or something, it doesn’t even allow itself to be upset about it,” Krum said. “It’s just like, ‘screw you, I’m going to ignore you and have a good time, because that’s how much I hate you.’ It’s defiantly happy.” Being one of only a handful of ska bands in Albuquerque, the “Reagan Motels” play any show they can find, regardless of who they play with, Montgomery said. It is at these shows, he said, where they can begin building a new ska community, rich with fans of other genres. Fan Joshua Huggins said he’s seen the band perform six times, and it’s the group’s energy that keeps him going back. “There’s a lot of dancing, a lot of camaraderie,” Huggins said. “Everyone gets along and it’s always a lot of fun. It’s a really cool, small group of people.”

“I like coming here because I got arthritis, and I get a chance to get my hands doing something,” he said. “It’s therapy for me.” Lee Johnson said he started visiting ArtStreet regularly when he was homeless five years ago. Though he is no longer homeless, he still works with the program as a mentor. He was raised by the state of Michigan, where he said he was constantly surrounded by psychologists. “Being raised by the state, I was raised by shrinks and counselors, and I can’t stand them. I have no use for them,” he said. “As far as I’m concerned, psychology is witchcraft.” He said ArtStreet has given him an outlet for expression and kept him out of jail; he had three aggravated assault charges on the same cop. “I have a problem with temper,”

he said. “When I lose my temper, I get real violent, which doesn’t happen often. This place was the only program in any kind of psychological or counseling setting that I could deal with.” He said he prefers making more conservative art and typically draws pictures with a ballpoint pen. His pictures usually have more than 20,000 miniscule pen lines. He said he wants to continue to pursue art as a hobby and as a means to make extra money. He said he likes ArtStreet because it sells the art, and the artist receives all of the profits. “It makes a big difference when you’re counting pennies for a cigarette,” he said.
