Duplicate Regents approve main campus housing text alerts confuse students BEFORE

by Chelsea Erven

UNM: Multiple emergency texts were ‘accidental’ by Hunter Riley

The University tested its emergency alert system, LoboAlerts, on Monday, but students said they were confused by the multiple texts and e-mails they received about the test. Student Brandon See said he received the first text message three times saying that the alert was just a test. He said he then he got an “all clear” text from another number. “I was confused,” he said. “Why are they sending me the same message three times? I like what they’re doing. It’s a great system, but do I have to be warned six times?” University Emergency Manager Byron Piatt said in an e-mail that LoboAlerts intended to send two texts and one e-mail, and that excess alerts were sent accidentally. “There may have been some accidental duplication of messages, but it gives us confidence that we can send out multiple messages, including updates, in the future,” he said. LoboAlerts system replaced TextMe UNM, which had about 9,000 registered recipients in September 2010. LoboAlerts is an optout as opposed to opt-in system, but recipients can opt-out only from the text message alerts, not the e-mail alerts. On the first day LoboAlerts was activated, about 50,000 people were signed up for the alerts. Text messages, on average, are sent 10 times faster than e-mails, Piatt said. He said the delivery time depends on phone model and provider, the phone’s location and signal. He said those factors can affect how many messages are sent to phones. “There’s a lot of different variables as to why you may have gotten more (text messages) than someone else,” Piatt said. “Theoretically, everyone should have gotten the same number.” Piatt said he receives varying responses from students and UNM members when LoboAlerts tests the emergency notification system. “We get people who are happy we are doing the tests and sending alerts,” he said. “Some people call in saying that they aren’t affiliated with UNM. Some people get new cell phone numbers and don’t update their information with UNM.”

The Board of Regents approved main campus housing plans Tuesday, ushering in a two-year period of dorm demolition and renovation. UNM’s partner, American Campus Communities, is scheduled to begin construction on the dorms May 16, but the University and ACC have not worked out how much ACC will pay for the land. Regent Gene Gallegos, the only regent to vote against the housing plans, said construction finances concern him. “ACC is a for-profit business, and they want to negotiate as favorably as they can, and I think that negotiation has to be mutual,” he said. “And it has to be a favorable financial deal for the University.” ACC could pay up to $545,000 in rent, but depending on development and construction costs, rent could also be as low as $305,000, which is the property’s “fair market value,” according to the building plans. ACC officials said they want to begin construction as soon as possible in order to complete the dorms by August 2012. The company plans to begin construction before definite rates are agreed upon. Regent Don Chalmers assured Gallegos the situation was not a large risk. “Because of our desire that is spurring on the project for 2012, (ACC) does not have a guaranteed maximum price,” Chalmers said. “They have estimates, and they believe their estimates are right. ... But in the worst case scenario, we get fair market value.” But there is a discrepancy among the regents about whether $305,000 is the fair market value, which is what ACC will pay if construction and development costs are high enough.

The Lobo Development Board and six of seven Regents’ Finance and Facilities Committee members approved the building plans and tentative rates before they went before the regents Tuesday. Gallegos said his concerns with ACC stem from previous dealings with the company. He said the regents found problems with the Lobo Village lease when they reviewed it last year. “It was the most unfair, one-sided lease that you could imagine,” he said. “We sat down with ACC and we renegotiated that lease and probably changed 20 terms to make it a fair lease.” Gallegos said the regents and ACC have more negotiating to do. He said a tentative rate plan is also not a provision of the original Master Agreement between ACC, Lobo Development and UNM. The new phase of building involves the demolition of Santa Ana dorm, the parking lot behind it, two SRC apartments, two tennis courts and part of lower Johnson Field to make way for four multi-story dorms. The project will use more than four acres of UNM land, is set to cost ACC about $92 per square foot of building, and will cost residents about $570 per month, according to the plans. Faculty Senate President Richard Wood questioned how much the project would cost the University. Lobo development officials said the project won’t cost UNM, but Wood didn’t agree. “What we are spending is a prime piece of real estate, and we’re doing it for students,” he said. “But I do think every time we enter into these agreements with a private sector, with all respect for the profit motives of the private sector, our interests are always at risk. And you all are on the line trying to defend our interests.”

Bill: Voters must bring picture ID to polls by Shaun Griswold

After a heated debate, the House Voters and Election Committee postponed a vote that will determine if New Mexicans should be required to show photo identification at voting polls on Election Day. House Bill 308, sponsored by Rep. Dianne Hamilton (R-Silver City), is supported by the governor and the Secretary of the State’s office, which oversees state-wide elections. However, the bill received criticism from County Clerk’s offices. Secretary of State Dianna Duran, a newly elected Republican, said identification at polls is crucial. “We need to have voter ID implemented before going into 2012 elections in order to assure that every person who appears at that polling place is the person they say they are,” she said.

Some county clerks, who administer elections in the state’s 33 counties, said the bill would apply only to ballots cast at polling locations and not mail-in ballots. Santa Fe chief deputy clerk Denise Lamb said mail-in or absentee ballots have a greater risk of potential abuse. “No one knows if someone is assisting them with that ballot,” she said. “No one knows if someone is coercing them or bribing them, unlike at the polling places. We cannot create two classes of voters.” The House Voters and Election Committee will vote on the measure Thursday. Its recommendations will help lawmakers determine whether to support the measure. During her State of the State speech on Jan. 18, Gov. Susana Martinez said requiring a photo ID at the polls was one of her legislative priorities. “People have to show a photo ID to rent a movie,” she said. “It’s not too much to ask to show a photo ID to vote.”

Eight states require voters to show photo identification, according to the Associated Press. Nineteen states require identification, but not a photo, to vote. If passed, HB 308 would require New Mexican voters to provide a state or federally issued photo identification card. Native Americans

“People have to show a photo ID to rent a movie. It’s not too much to ask to show a photo ID to vote.” ~Gov. Susana Martinez would be exempt from the law because they can show tribally issued identification cards, which are issued without a photo.

Steve Allen, executive director of Common Cause, a political nonprofit, said the law would not improve the state’s elections. “Quite the contrary, it would cost a lot of money and disenfranchise a bunch of qualified voters in the process,” he said. “This state has enough real problems. This bill creates new ones while trying to solve an imaginary one.” Measure supporters, including branches from the state’s Tea Party, said the law would help prevent voter fraud. Robert Mitzel, who spoke on behalf of the Chaves County Tea Party Patriots, mirrored the governor’s statement. “If it’s important enough that I present an ID to rent a movie, it should be important enough to present an ID to vote,” he said. Lamb rebutted the claim and said the bill could incite costly lawsuits against the state if it passes. “A privilege granted by a business is different than a constitutional right,” she said.

Dalai Lama’s nephew killed by Kristen Wyatt Associated Press

PALM COAST, Fla.— The Dalai Lama’s nephew was smiling, radiating energy as he tackled the first leg of a 300-mile walk to promote Tibet’s independence from China. He insisted on finishing the last two miles on his own, even as darkness fell. “For the cause,” Jigme K. Norbu said, as he had on so many similar journeys before. Norbu was alone on a dark coastal highway Monday when was struck and killed by an SUV. He was headed south in the same direction as traffic, following a white line along the side of the road, according to the Highway Patrol. The impact crumpled the vehicle’s hood and shattered the front windshield. Authorities said it appeared to be an accident and the driver, 31year-old Keith R. O’Dell of Palm Coast, swerved but couldn’t avoid Norbu. The Highway Patrol was still investigating, but didn’t expect any charges. O’Dell and his 5-year-old son were not hurt. Norbu, 45, had completed at least 21 walks and bike rides, logging more than 7,800 miles in the U.S. and overseas to support freedom for Tibet and highlight the suffering of its people. He completed his most recent 300-mile trek in December in Taiwan. He lived in Bloomington, Ind., where his father had been a professor at Indiana University, and he owned a restaurant that served Tibetan and Indian cuisine. He had set out Monday with a group of friends, but insisted he would continue on his own after one of his companions tired and they decided to take a van to a restaurant. Norbu planned to meet

them there. About an hour before the accident, Norbu met a Florida couple, Gary and Damian Drum Collins, who had heard about his jaunt through town. “He was smiling and happy. He had as much positive energy as you could imagine,” Gary Collins told The Associated Press. His wife took a picture with Norbu, who was wearing running shoes, a dark pullover and a white

“He was smiling and happy. He had as much positive energy as you could imagine,” ~Gary Collins sandwich board-like sign that said, “Walk For Tibet Florida.” The couple was troubled by the fading sunlight and urged Norbu to stay at their place for the night. He was already behind schedule, they said, and agreed to change his plans. “It was becoming dusk. We were worried, and we were concerned he wasn’t going to have daylight,” Gary Collins said. They suggested Norbu stay in-

side their condominium, about three miles from their Hammock Wine & Cheese Shoppe, but he wanted to spend the night under the stars. So the Collinses made preparations for Norbu and his group to spend the night outside the cheese shop. They left a towel, bar of soap, three bottles of coconut juice, a can of stuffed grape leaves and crackers on a table outside. The back door was also unlocked so the travelers could shower and use the restroom. A note for the group read: “Hi! Please make yourselves at home. It is an honor to have you here.” Norbu was killed just a quarter of a mile from the shop. On Tuesday, a vase with seven roses marked the accident site on the side of the two-lane State Highway A1A, where the speed limit is 55 mph and there are no traffic lights. A woman who identified herself as the mother of the SUV driver said her son didn’t want to talk to the media. “What more is there to say? He was wearing dark clothes. It was an unfortunate accident. He hasn’t been charged. That’s all we’re going to say,” said the woman, who would not give her name. A dishwasher at a nearby restaurant was killed in September along the same stretch of road where Norbu died.

correction The headline for Monday’s story, “Senator proposes 16month window for Lottery,” was incorrect. Bill O’Neill, the legislator who sponsored the bill, is a representative, not a senator.

Letters Online forum hurls vicious attacks instead of opinions Editor, I am writing to remark on the hostile environment that has developed in the Daily Lobo’s online comments section. Nearly all political articles have a long trail of reader-posted comments that are vicious. Instead of carrying out a dialogue (even a relatively heated one), members on all sides of the political spectrum hurl personal insults at one another. This is disappointing to me personally, because I hoped that the online comments sections would provide a space to discuss topics of mutual interest with UNM community members. Instead I have found that it is more a place to degrade the intelligence and opinions of those whose opinions differ. If you don’t believe me, try looking at some of the recent comments online. If we’re lucky, there might even be some examples on this letter. I am not one for censorship, and I am not asking that the comments section be shut down. Rather, I’m hoping to appeal to some of the people who post their comments. Just because many of us are at odds and do not see eye to eye does not mean that discussions must sink to a personal level. The space we have to comment should be used for dialogue. Many of us won’t agree with each other, but isn’t that what freedom of speech is for? The representation of points of view is part of what makes this country great. Kyle Farris UNM student

Staff member: Be wary of HR’s cell phone upgrade offer


Editor, Human Resources negotiated staff discounts with various cell-phone companies, including T-Mobile. This seems like a no-brainer, so I went ahead and applied for the discount on my phone plan a few months ago. But in talking to the T-Mobile customer support people, I found out they counted this as an “upgrade” to my plan and reset the clock on my contract. I’m now locked into a new two-year contract with T-Mobile. Before getting that discount, I was out of contract with them and could have cancelled my service at any time without penalty. Now it would cost me a $200 cancellation fee to leave T-Mobile and move to another vendor. I don’t blame HR at all. It thought it was doing something good for the UNM staff, but it turns out, HR was really doing T-Mobile a huge favor, locking me into a new contract I never wanted. If you are a staff member and a T-Mobile customer, I’d advise you not to get this discount. It isn’t worth the hidden cost. And maybe HR could add a warning to its web page, too.

Editorial Board Pat Lohmann

Graduate students ask state legislators for employee status Editor, I am writing to support SB 400, recognizing graduate assistants, teaching assistants, research assistants and project assistants as employees as introduced by Sen. Gerald Ortiz y Pino. This is a common sense, one-anda-half-page bill with zero fiscal impact. Without assistantships, UNM could not keep tuition costs low relative to peer institutions because assistants teach at least 20 percent and support at least another 15 percent of undergraduate courses for minimal compensation. The work these graduate assistants do is vital in furthering the University’s core mission: educating students and conducting research. Incidentally, these are the University’s two most profitable enterprises. Despite the incredible work graduate assistants do as employees, we do not have job security, nor do we have a position at the bargaining table since we lack a definitive decision about our legal status as employees. In the fall, the College of Arts and Sciences proposed to the Board of Regents that 40 graduate assistant positions be cut in spring to reduce costs. Only after raising student awareness were student groups

able to rally to restore funding for these positions. In the Graduate and Professional Student Association’s Legislative Priorities Survey, we found that 81 percent of graduate students support a bill that would recognize teaching assistants, graduate assistants, professional assistants and resident assistants as employees. When we asked graduate students to numerically score which legislative priority is most important to them, we found that protecting graduate employee funding lines came in second and a state bill recognizing assistants as employees came in fourth (behind fighting to cut UNM administration and preserve research funding lines). Providing this recognition and basic protection features prominently in graduate students’ minds. SB 400 is fiscally responsible and doesn’t cost anything. Through Section 1 Subsection B, TAs, GAs, RAs and PAs as employees would be exempted from the Educational Retirement Act. And as employees, they would be exempted from Social Security contributions and would still be eligible for student health insurance. Designating these people as employees would not require that they receive additional benefits greater than they currently enjoy. What it would mean, however, is that graduate assistants would gain the recognition they deserve for the work they do at UNM.

As employees, graduate assistants would be able to negotiate grievance procedures and engage in binding dispute resolution. Currently, there is no mechanism to negotiate hours of work or discrimination complaints. There is no transparency expectation with regard to hiring, no ensured access to materials and resources needed to perform the work, no ability to negotiate leave policies, no ensured due process with regard to termination and no formal protections for academic freedom. With regard to workload and hours worked, having no mechanism to negotiate these results in more hours worked on something that is not directly related to the graduate assistant’s own research/dissertation. This means that completing a degree takes longer. Employee status would make it easier for graduate assistants to finish their degrees. Student employees have been classified as employees through state law in Wisconsin, Michigan, California, New York, Massachusetts, Kansas, Pennsylvania, Oregon and Florida. It’s time for all New Mexico university employees to be treated equally under the law, so we can affirm the critical work that assistants do in furthering the academic mission. Please call or write your state legislator and urge them to support SB 400. Nick Engquist, MPA student Lissa Knudsen, GPSA president

From one of its best performances of the season to its worst. After posting a season-high 53 percent shooting Saturday against Colorado State, the UNM women’s basketball team went ice-cold Tuesday, notching a dismal 22 percent from the field en route to a 50-44 home loss to San Diego State. With the loss, the Lobos fall to 9-14 on the season and 3-8 in Mountain West Conference action. Meanwhile, the Aztecs improve to 11-13 overall and 5-7 in conference. Head coach Don Flanagan was once again disappointed in his team.

UNM 44 When you shoot SDSU 50 like that, you always have to play catch up, and then you have to start making threes if you want to stay in the game.� Senior forward Jessica Kielpinski didn’t make any excuses for her team either. “I didn’t play as tough as I could have,� she said. “Toughness means that we need to go all out. Don’t let them post up. Battle for the post each possession, and we didn’t do that. Against Colorado State, we

San Diego State managed an unspectacular 30 percent shooting for the game and shot just 7 percent from three-point land. Meanwhile, UNM was six-of-23 from long range. But it was the Aztec’s height and athleticism in the paint that carried them to victory. “We just couldn’t stop them inside,� Flanagan said. “They were one-of-13 beyond the arc, and we didn’t do a very good job of collapsing down on the ball when they

They were the more physical team. They played harder than we did. That’s what happens if you let someone come into your building and play harder than you.
