SFRB holds separate hearings
The Independent Voice of UNM since 1895
Departments facing cuts ask SFRB for student fees by Hunter Riley firstname.lastname@example.org
Student Fee Review Board members couldn’t agree over whether a video camera should be allowed to record applicant hearings, so undergraduate and graduate members held separate sessions over the weekend. ASUNM board members met in one room of the College of Education Building, while GPSA board members deliberated next door. GPSA Grants Committee Chair Katie Richardson said separate hearings sessions could be bad for the student body as a whole. “I think the two student groups have more in common, and if we don’t find a way to work together the student body will suffer,” Richardson said. Both sides of the SFRB will host a town-hall meeting today to gain student input on student fee allocation. Some student groups requested funding this year for the first time since other avenues of funding are drying up. Parking and Transportation Services requested student fees for the first time because the free bus pass program is in danger of being cut. It asked for $100,000 to keep the program running. Student Health and Counseling historically requests the largest amount of money from student fees. This year it requested more than $4 million. The Athletics Department requested the next largest sum at $1.8 million. Tim Cass, associate director for athletics and administration, said athletics makes 85 percent of its budget through sources such as ticket sales. “We are the top self-generating school in our league,” Cass said. Michael Thorning, ASUNM chief of staff, asked the athletics panel about what the department is doing in response to the recent media attention concerning athletes and coaches. Henry Villegas, manager of academic advisement for athletes, said the media has portrayed UNM athletes and coaches in a negative light recently. He said the media writes only negative stories. “Any time something like that happens, it is the front-page story,” Villegas said. “But if you look at the over 3,000 hours of community service, there is no one out there covering those things.”

Flintco denies foul Business play in Pit contract students by Barron Jones
email@example.com A lawsuit filed in January alleges UNM unethically awarded the $60 million Pit renovation project to an Oklahama-based contractor, but the contractor says it is not responsible for UNM’s actions. The lawsuit, filed by the New Mexico Building and Construction Trades Council and The Local Electrical and Iron Workers Union, alleges contracting company Flintco was given the construction management contract for the Pit because of its relationship with UNM President David Schmidly. The complaint accuses Flintco of hiring Schmidly’s son, Brian Schmidly, as the new business development manager in exchange for the contract. Flintco released a statement Feb. 7 saying the lawsuit is nothing more than a meritless attack on the company. “This action is clearly frivolous, clearly vexatious or brought primarily for the purpose of harassment,” the statement said. In the statement, Flintco denied the allegations and said it did not authorize or sanction unlawful actions alleged in the lawsuit. Flintco Vice President Ken Easley said the Board of Regents determined hiring Brian Schmidly was not a conflict of interest, “In our first interview, Brian did disclose his relationship with Presi-
dent Schmidly,” Easley said in an email. “However, we didn’t think his family connection should disqualify him. It was up to the board to decide if there was a conflict of interest. They did not. This is documented in the January public minutes of the regents meeting.”
“We are actually suing on behalf of the University, not against it.” ~John Wertheim Attorney Four UNM officials and one outside architect scored each bidding company to determine which was most qualified to receive the contract. The lawsuit claims all UNM officials’ scores were scratched off and recalculated to reflect Flintco as the winning bidder over Bradbury Stamm and Jaynes Corp. However, Jaynes Corp. scored higher than Flinto and underbid it by $2.2 million, according to the lawsuit. The score sheets in question were filled out by Athletics Vice President Paul Krebs, then-Facility Management Vice President William Turner, UNM Architect Roger Lujan and Facility Project Officer Miguel Hidalgo.

Judges award $7,500 to duo to start social networking site by Shannon Alexander firstname.lastname@example.org
Several UNM students are one step closer to realizing their small business dreams after winning a campus-wide entrepreneurship contest. Anderson School of Management hosted its first annual Entrepreneurial Challenge on Friday. Fifteen student teams presented business ideas to a panel of judges, all of whom were local entrepreneurs. Challenge Director Sul Kassicieh said the competition was designed for students to contribute to the local economy. He said, for the past six years, the school has offered the Technology Business Plan Competition, which supports technology business ventures. But this competition accepts a wider range of ideas. “We feel that this country’s strength is in our ability to start new businesses,” he said. “The more we can start, the better it is for jobs and creating wealth. So it really is to help the economic development of New
Mexico.” Teams proposed businesses including a late-night dessert bar, a mobile marketing company and a drive-thru coffee shop with bikiniclad baristas. Five student teams received cash prizes to help them start their businesses in the Albuquerque area. Students Olena Dziuba and Robert Shaw received the first-place cash prize of $7,500 for their social networking site for amateur musicians. Steven Lang and Sam Caswell received the second-place cash prize of $5,000 for their television marketing service and third prize went to Paul Aitken for a student taxi/shuttle service. Lang and Caswell said the competition prepared them for future business proposal presentations. The competition was designed to give business students more handson experience, Kassicieh said. “A lot of times when we go to school we tend to focus on just studying, and then maybe finding a job,” he said. “But this gave them the opportunity to take it to the next step. It really gets them to start thinking about issues that are beyond that pure idea.” Student competitor Alex Moine, who proposed a hot dog stand for the downtown area, didn’t win a prize but said that the competition was a learning experience for him. “I never realized how much goes into a business plan — how much time and thought,” he said. He’s interested in making his proposal a reality. “I’ve decided that, regardless, I’m going to find a way to get a loan and do it,” he said. “I think it would be a good idea to help myself and New Mexicans.”

Photo Essay: Chile Protests

A police officer in Concepcion, Chile, walks in front of a university protest Dec. 6. 2010. Officers patrol the campus because violent protests often break out around the university. It’s not uncommon for protesters to throw rocks and Molotov cocktails at police and for police to shoot water cannons and tear gas into crowds. Classes at the university typically remain in session during the protests.

LETTER UNM Nourish chapter needs help for Nicaragua projects
Legislators push for cycle safety
Editor, The UNM chapter of Nourish International is in its first year, but it’s off to a great start. Nourish aims to combat global poverty one community at a time. Nourish International at UNM is partnering with Casa de la Mujer, an organization in Nicaragua, to build and repair houses that are sold to women heads-of-household at little cost. Among several fundraising methods, we are competing in the Nourish Challenge at GlobalGiving.org. If we win, our project receives additional funding that will increase its impact. We are currently in second place, just behind founding chapter University of North Carolina and significantly ahead of Stanford University, which is in third. This is a high achievement, and UNM should be proud. Everyone is encouraged to check out our project and donate. With the assistance of the UNM community, we can win this and better help families in need. Go to GlobalGiving.org and type “UNM Nourish” in the search bar. Sam Waggoner UNM Student

Daily Lobo Guest Columnist Just a couple of months ago, I was riding my motorcycle on Stanford Drive heading south one block from UNM when an oncoming car veered into my side of the street. I could clearly see the driver was too busy texting to notice he was driving head-on toward me. My options were to stop and hope he saw me before he hit me, or swerve to the left side of the street and hope he didn’t over-correct when he saw he was about to hit a parked car. I decided to slow to a crawl and got ready to jump onto his hood when he hit me. Fortunately, he did see me just seconds before his front bumper hit my front wheel. He mouthed the word “sorry” as he peevishly used the full extent of his turning radius to swerve away. We read about wrong-way drivers and head-on collisions all the time in New Mexico. There was another one just last week. But when we read about these collisions, we are usually reading about people whose blood alcohol level is two or three times the legal limit. But because cyclists and motorcyclists aren’t SUV huge or visible, and because they are considerably more vulnerable, we tend to be aware of inattentive drivers, regardless of why they aren’t paying attention to us on the road. Even before the cellular phone era, twowheelers were concerned with people reading the paper, putting on makeup and/or screaming at their children in the back seat. Not so much any more.
Today, we’re concerned about the number of drivers paying attention to their touch screens instead of paying attention to their driving and actively looking for us. You just have to watch the news to see that in recent years bicyclists and motorcyclists have suffered at the hands of inattentive fourwheel drivers. In the UNM-area, I personally encounter at least one motorist every week who turns too wide, swerves into my lane or simply doesn’t see me until it’s almost too late. Usually, it’s because he or she won’t let go of that cell phone.
I could clearly see the driver was too busy texting to notice he was driving head on toward me. The ubiquitousness and imminent danger of driver cell phone use, even texting, leads to careless, inattentive driving. This has become alarmingly clear to both two-wheeled communities. This past Saturday, 150 two-wheelers of both varieties rallied in Santa Fe to support bills intended to make us safer. Rick Miera’s (D-Albuquerque) HB 68 increases the penalties for drivers who kill or create “great bodily harm” in a collision. Although this bill does not specifically mention bicycles or motorcycles, the likelihood of serious injury or death when bigger vehicles hit less-protected two-wheelers makes this a law we hope will encourage four-or-more wheeled motorists to look more attentively for those of us who take up less road.
Similarly, HB 197, sponsored by Antonio Lujan (D-Doña Ana County), does not specifically mention motorcycles or bicycles, but prohibits texting while driving. Texting while driving is more dangerous to two-wheelers than drinking while driving, and is disproportionately injurious to twowheelers. It behooves those of us who ride on public streets to support its passage. The final two bills of concern to two-wheelers specifically mention bicyclists. Peter Wirth’s (D-Santa Fe) SB 124 is a law that is currently in place in Albuquerque but is long overdue in the rest of the state. It mandates a safe passing zone of five feet around a bicyclist. This makes sense, especially in rural back roads where fast drivers lose their peripheral depth perception from tunnel vision, and in urban areas where bike lanes often double as wide side-view-mirror lanes. As a motorcyclist, I would love the same protection. Miguel Garcia’s (D-South Valley) HB 259 and its companion bill SB 382, sponsored by Eric Griego (D–South Valley), would allow bicyclists to legally roll through stop signs after pausing to look both ways. As a longtime bicycling advocate, I have mixed feeling about separate-but-equal rules. As an avid cyclist, I understand the extra energy it takes to accelerate back up to speed from a full stop. Frankly, I think the bicycling community would be well-served by a law that gives us a little leeway at stop signs. Laws intended for all vehicles that share the road too often favor the four-wheeled, larger kind of motor vehicle. It’s high time that our lawmakers up at the Round House pay more attention to human-powered and motorized two-wheeled vehicles — even if it’s to give those of us pedaling as fast as we can a break at stop signs.

Colo. sets rule for driving on pot Ivan Moreno
Associated Press DENVER — The surge of medical marijuana use in Colorado has started another debate in the state Legislature: What constitutes driving while high? Lawmakers are considering setting a DUI blood-content threshold for marijuana that would make Colorado one of three states with such a provision in statute — and one of the most liberal, according to Rep. Claire Levy, one of the bill’s sponsors. Under the proposal, drivers who test positive for 5 nanograms or more of THC, the psychoactive ingredient in marijuana, would be considered too impaired to drive if the substance is present in their blood at the time they’re pulled over or within two hours. Levy, a Democrat from Boulder, said she’s gotten resistance from medical marijuana advocates who fear it will restrict patients from using the drug. “What I’ve tried to assure the patient advocates is that we’re not talking about sobriety checkpoints, we’re not talking about dragnets and massive stops,” she said. “They’re not going to be stopped if they’re driving appropriately.” While it’s already illegal to drive while impaired by drugs, states have taken different approaches to the issue. Twelve states, including Arizona, Michigan, Illinois, Iowa, and Rhode Island, have a zero-tolerance policy for driving with any presence of an illegal substance, said Anne Teigen, policy specialist at the National Conference of State Legislatures. Minnesota has the same policy but exempts marijuana. Nevada, which is among the 16 states that allow medical marijua-
“My only concern is that, because medical marijuana is controversial, that we’re entering a new phase of not racial profiling but medical profiling,” said Sean McAllister, an attorney at Denver’s Cannabis Law Center. McAllister was on a state panel that recommended the 5-nanogram standard, which he said is a fair judge of impairment for most users. Not all marijuana advocates agree. “We’re concerned the nanogram limit is too low because most medical marijuana patients are going to have higher levels in their bloodstream because of their continued use of medical cannabis,” said Laura Kriho, a spokeswoman with the Cannabis Therapy Institute in Colorado. Rep. Mark Waller, a Republican who is sponsoring House Bill 1261 with Rep. Levy, said their proposal is meant to set a THC-blood level at which someone is presumed to be too impaired to drive. “It’s a rebuttable presumption, though,” said Waller, adding that drivers won’t be automatically guilty of a DUI and will still get a chance to argue their case. The bill is yet to come before a committee for a hearing, but Levy said she’s already getting a lot of comments from medical marijuana users. “I’m getting a lot of pushback, a lot of concern that this will hinder the ability of medical marijuana patients to make use of their medicine,” Levy said. She said the bill is about safety, not targeting people who use pot for medical purposes. “I’m very supportive of medicinal use of marijuana,” Levy said. “You just can’t allow people to be driving when they’re high.”

The LGBTQ Resource Center, which received its start-up costs from student fees last year, asked this year for more than $130,000 to keep the center alive. The center is funded completely by student fees. The hearings were originally scheduled for last month, but SFRB Chair and ASUNM President Laz Cardenas motioned to postpone them pending a University Counsel ruling on whether the board had to allow the meetings to be recorded. GPSA board members supported having the hearings recorded, and video recorded hearings over the weekend. ASUNM members opposed video recording, and video cameras were prohibited at its session. Last month’s joint hearings were recorded, and ASUNM board members gave student groups a chance to present again if they felt uncomfortable about the camera. ASUNM Sen. Heidi Overton said none of the student groups asked to present again. Richardson said all the groups were given prior notification that the GPSA hearings would be video recorded, and each group showed up for the hearing despite the camera. GPSA did not allow groups
na, and Ohio have a 2 nanogram THC limit for driving. Pennsylvania has a 5 nanogram limit, but that’s a state Health Department guideline, which can be introduced in driving violation cases, Teigen said. Don Christensen, the executive director of the County Sheriffs of Colorado, which supports the 5 nanogram THC blood-content benchmark, said he thinks it’s a fair way for law enforcement and the public to know how much marijuana you can consume while legally being able to drive — just as there’s a limit with alcohol. “I think it’s fair to tell them the rules to be played by,” he said. Levy said the amount of marijuana needed to reach the 5 nanogram threshold is hard to quantify, but from what she’s been told, “You would have to have smoked some very potent marijuana and immediately be stopped and have your blood tested in order to achieve that 5-nanogram level.” According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, peak THC concentrations are present during the act of smoking and they generally fall to less than 5 nanograms within three hours. Pot activists, including the National Organization for the Reform of Marijuana Laws, say they hope marijuana DUIs are not based solely on the amount of the drug that is found in someone’s system, but rather on the totality of the case, such as how the person was driving and other observations an officer makes. They argue that medical users of the drug may have higher tolerance levels which would allow them to drive or still have trace levels of THC long after they’ve smoked the drug. Some also worry that medical users may be unfairly targeted.

that presented last month to present again. Alma Rosa Silva-Bañuelos, program coordinator for the LGBTQ Resource Center, attended the hearings with about 13 students, volunteers and supporters. Silva-Bañuelos said she didn’t mind presenting her request twice. “We still have some of our strong supporters that were able to show up,” she said. “They’ve been ready to show up the first time, the second time, and now they’re ready here to be with us and support us.”

not show signs of recalculations, the lawsuit said. Attorney John Wertheim, who represents the labor unions filing the suit, said Flintco’s hiring of Schimdly’s son is at the center of the fraud allegations. “I do think the allegations in the complaint speak for themselves and I think they clearly need to get to the bottom of what went on,” Wertheim said. “It is the purpose of the lawsuit to shed light
on the contract bidding process in New Mexico and UNM.” Wertheim said UNM paid at least $2.2 million more than it should have for the Pit renovation, and the lawsuit looks to put that money back in the University’s budget. “They (Flintco) are the ones that benefited financially. That’s our allegation,” Wertheim said. “We are actually suing on behalf of the University, not against it.”

AP Photo U.S. Sen. Jeff Bingaman announces his retirement from public service as his wife, Anne, looks on, Friday, Feb. 18, 2011, in Albuquerque, N.M. The 67-year-old Democrat announced Friday that he would retire after the end of his current term, which ends in two years. The decision was the latest in a string of departures to hit congressional Democrats as they head to the 2012 elections.
Congratulate Last Week’s
Heinrich considers Senate seat Associated Press Democratic U.S. Rep. Martin Heinrich said Sunday he’s considering running for the U.S. Senate seat being vacated by Democrat Jeff Bingaman. Bingaman announced Friday he will not seek re-election in 2012 when his fifth term in the Senate expires. Since Bingaman’s announcement, many constituents and friends across the state have asked Heinrich if he will run for the Senate, said the congressman, who won a second term in November to represent New Mexico’s 1st Congressional District covering Albuquerque and surrounding areas. “I have not yet made a decision, but together with my wife Julie, I plan to actively consider running,” Heinrich said in a statement on his Facebook page that also was released to the media.
He said he will base his decision on whether he believes he can best serve New Mexico in the House or in the Senate. Other Democrats said Friday they had not ruled out a run for the Senate seat by former Lt. Gov. Diane Denish, Attorney General Gary King and former Attorney General Patricia Madrid. Republicans would not speculate on who might seek Bingaman’s seat from the GOP ranks in two years, but state Republican Party Chairman Monty Newman said, “Our bench is going to be broad and deep.” State Democrats said they will have an “incredibly strong bench of candidates to draw from,” and Bingaman said he was certain the Democrats would hang on to his seat. When Heinrich, a former Albuquerque city councilor, won the 1st District seat in 2008, he shifted the 1st Congressional District to the
Democrats’ column for the first time since it was created in 1968. The 1st District seat was open in 2008 because incumbent Republican Heather Wilson opted to run for a U.S. Senate seat vacated by retiring Republican Pete Domenici rather than seek re-election to the House. All three of New Mexico’s House members — Wilson, Republican Steve Pearce of the 2nd District and Democrat Tom Udall of the 3rd District — ran for Domenici’s seat. Pearce defeated Wilson in the Republican primary but lost the general election to Udall. In 2010, Heinrich outspent GOP challenger Jon Barela nearly 2-to-1 in the 1st District. Outside interests dumped about $3.8 million into the race that year, with nearly $2.4 million spent against Heinrich and $1 million opposing Barela. About $400,000 went to support the candidates.

“The message was one of Christian marriage, which the Bible teaches is between a man and a woman,” Looy told the newspaper. He noted that the museum welcomes all visitors during regular hours. Sonka said he has visited the museum twice before without incident. Looy defended the decision not to allow the two men in and cited a blog post that Sonka wrote in January, encouraging readers to raise money to send a “flamboyantly gay” couple to the event. “We are not going to allow anyone to come to a private event and be disruptive,” Looy told the newspaper. “It’s not fair to the other people who also paid to attend the event. We welcome anyone to come to the Creation Museum during regular business hours because we want all people to be exposed to our message.”
PETERSBURG, Ky.— A progressive blogger and another man who tried to go to a special event at Kentucky’s Creation Museum said they were denied admission because they told security that they were a same-sex couple. The men bought tickets online for a Date Night event on Feb. 11 at the privately funded Petersburg museum, which shows visitors a literal interpretation of the Bible depicting how the world was created in six days about 6,000 to 10,000 years ago. Both museum officials and the men denied admission agree that they weren’t let in and not reimbursed the $71.90 cost for the tickets. They differ on whether it was clear beforehand that men without female companions would be turned away.
The event included dinner, musical performances and a talk from museum founder Ken Ham about love and the biblical view of marriage. One of the men who was denied admission, Joe Sonka, is the writer of a blog called Barefoot and Progressive. He has previously criticized the museum and its founder, as well as the idea of giving public tax breaks for a proposed theme park the museum’s backers want to build based on the biblical story of Noah’s ark. Sonka wrote in an e-mail to The Associated Press that neither he nor the other man denied entry is gay. He said he was curious to hear the museum’s founder speak and if they would admit a same-sex couple. Museum spokesman Mark Looy told The Kentucky Enquirer that the promotional material for the Date Night made it clear the event was for heterosexual couples only.

NFL star’s suicide prompts study Carmelo meets
inski said Sunday. CSTE is a collaboration between Boston University Medical School and the Sports Legacy Institute that is attempting to address what it calls the “concussion crisis” in sports. The group has been at the forefront of research into head trauma in sports, and has received a $1 million gift from the NFL, which it has pushed for better treatment of concussions. Nowinski said more than 300 athletes, including 100 current and former NFL players, are on the CSTE’s brain donation registry. There are 65 cases currently being studied. “You can never link a single act to a disease, however, a large percentage of CTE cases have committed suicide,” Nowinski said. “It’s a potential link, something we have to explore.” Duerson was a third-round pick of the Bears in the 1983 draft out of Notre Dame, and he be-

NEWARK, N.J. — New Jersey Nets owner Mikhail Prokhorov met with Carmelo Anthony in Los Angeles on the same day a spokeswoman for the Russian billionaire said he had no plans to sit down with the AllStar forward, according to multiple reports. Minority owner Jay-Z also was involved in Saturday’s meeting, according to the New York Daily News. The Nuggets have looked into trading Anthony since he declined to sign a three-year contract extension worth nearly $65 million this season. The Nets were close to a deal twice, and the New York Knicks are considered the other favorite to land Anthony if Denver decides to move him. New Jersey and Denver recently renewed trade talks for Anthony for the third time this season. But Anthony, who became a free agent after this season, insisted twice Friday that no meeting was planned with Prokhorov and Ellen Pinchuk, a spokes-

woman for the owner, made the same claim earlier Saturday. “Just to update you, Mikhail has not met with and has no plans to meet with Carmelo Anthony,” she said. “He is looking forward to enjoying All-Star Weekend. We will have nothing else to add on this ...” ESPN.com, citing a league source, reported that the meeting occurred at a Los Angeles-area restaurant and also included Nets general manager Billy King and chief executive Brett Yormark. Anthony’s agent, Leon Rose, and his business manager, Bay Frazier. Anthony wants something to happen soon, but hasn’t received any indication from Nuggets president Josh Kroenke that it will. “I believe that me and Josh have a good relationship. Since he became the owner, we’ve been talking a lot. The lines of communication have been open,” Anthony said earlier Saturday. “I do believe that if something was to break or happen, that he would call me or he would sit down with me and explain it.”

“For someone to leave us at age 50, very young, active and in great shape, good health, that’s tragic. It’s way too early for someone to pass.”
came a full-time starter for the ‘85 team that shuffled all the way to the Super Bowl. The safety went to four Pro Bowls from 1986-89, then went to another Super Bowl with the 1990 New York Giants, before wrapping up his career with the Arizona Cardinals. After he retired, Duerson owned several McDonald’s franchises and later helped to grow a company that supplied fast-food restaurants. He left to start his own company in 2002. Things began to turn sour in the years that followed, though. His food supply company was forced into receivership in 2006, and Duerson filed for divorce from his wife a year later. He lost his Chicago-area home to foreclosure, and his position as Notre Dame trustee after pleading guilty to a misdemeanor domestic battery charge. “I knew he had some problems, I knew he lost the business, I knew all that,” said Ditka, whose Gridiron Greats Assistance Fund helps provide for retired players, which includes funding research into health-related issues like traumatic brain injuries. “It’s just a tragedy,” Ditka said. “It really is.” Jim Morrissey, a linebacker for the ‘85 Bears, said the news of their teammate’s death spread quickly through the close-knit team, with each player calling several others. More than anything else, Morrissey said, they wanted to offer each other their support — to make sure that nobody else was going through anything that would lead them to take their own life. “For someone to leave us at age 50, very young, active and in great shape, good health, that’s tragic. It’s way too early for someone to pass,” Morrissey said. “We were just hoping he would have said something, that we could have helped.” NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell said as he arrived for labor negotiations Sunday that he didn’t know details about Duerson’s case, but he certainly knew of his reputation. “He’s a good man,” Goodell said. “It’s sad.”
NEW YORK — Mike Ditka remembers seeing Dave Duerson at a reunion of the ‘85 Bears just a few months ago, and everything seemed fine. Yes, Duerson’s business had failed, he’d divorced and lost his home to foreclosure, but he seemed to have put it behind him. He was getting married again in April and spoke with optimism of the future, showing the kind of resolve that helped him reach four Pro Bowls, two Super Bowls and bounce back from countless bone-jarring hits over an 11-year career. So it was understandable that Ditka felt numb this week when he learned that Duerson, one of the anchors of that fearsome Bears defense, had committed suicide at the age of 50. “We had the anniversary party, and he seemed fine, you know?” the former coach said in a telephone interview Sunday. “I knew he had some problems, but I honestly didn’t know.” Duerson was found Thursday in Sunny Isles Beach, Fla., and the Miami-Dade medical examiner ruled his death a suicide on Sunday, Miami-Dade police spokesman Roy Rutland said. There was no word on whether a note was left, though the New York Times reported that Duerson had sent text messages to his family asking that his brain be examined for chronic traumatic encephalopathy, a degenerative disease tied to depression, dementia and suicide. Messages left by The Associated Press with his ex-wife, Alicia, and other family members were not returned. Chris Nowinski, from the Center for the Study of Traumatic Encephalopathy at Boston University School of Medicine, told The Associated Press he was contacted by a representative of the NFL Players Association on behalf of the family Friday, then secured the donation later in the day.
Nowinski said the brain eventually will undergo a battery of studies looking for any disease or abnormality, but focused on CTE, which has been found in a number of former athletes. “The goal of the research is both to better understand the disease so we can treat it, develop a diagnostic test for people while they’re alive, and also use the information to develop better prevention for current athletes,” Now-

Victory, but no champagne by Jenna Fryer Associated Press
~Jeff Gordon late last year when the team couldn’t promise a sponsor for this season. He hooked up with Roush and planned to run for the Nationwide Series title this season, and a deal was made to get him some seat time in the Cup Series with the Wood Brothers for 17 races. It wouldn’t be for points, and he wasn’t eligible to run for rookie of the year. But the stunning Daytona 500 win might change everybody’s plans. Bayne could potentially retract his decision to run for the Nationwide title, and the fat Daytona 500 payday could provide the funding the Woods need to become competitive again. Sunday’s race had a record 74 lead changes among 22 drivers, and a record 16 cautions that wiped out many of the leaders, including Earnhardt Jr. on the first attempt at NASCAR’s version of overtime. It put Bayne out

front with a slew of unusual suspects. David Ragan, winless in 147 career starts, was actually leading the field on NASCAR’s first attempt at a green-white-checkered finish. But he was flagged for changing lanes before the starting line, then an accident that collected Earnhardt in the middle of the pack brought out the caution, and Bayne inherited the lead. But he had two-time series champion Tony Stewart, now winless in 13 career Daytona 500s, lurking behind with veterans Bobby Labonte, Mark Martin and Kurt Busch, who had collected two previous wins over Speedweeks. All were champing at the bit for their first Daytona 500 title, but Bayne never blinked, holding his gas pedal down wide open as he staved off every challenge over the two-lap final shootout. “It was too easy,” Bayne said. He said he thought for sure he was going to brake, let Stewart in front of him, and push someone else to the win. Then nobody ever passed him. Edwards wound up second in a Ford and was followed by David Gilliland, Labonte and Busch. Juan Pablo Montoya was sixth, Regan Smith seventh, and Kyle Busch, Paul Menard and Martin rounded out the top 10. Earnhardt Jr. wound up 24th. It was a rough start to the season for Hendrick Motorsports as three of the team’s four cars, including five-time defending Sprint Cup Series champion Jimmie Johnson, were involved in an early 14-car wreck. Gordon, who started on the front row, sustained damage in the melee and questioned the aggressiveness of his fellow drivers in the dicey two-car tandem racing, especially so early in the race. “What I don’t quite understand is why guys are doing it three-wide, three-deep running for 28th,” he said.
DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. — Trevor Bayne finally made a mistake. Fortunately for him, it didn’t happen until he missed the turn pulling into Victory Lane at the Daytona 500. The youngest driver to win the Great American Race gave the historic Wood Brothers team its fifth Daytona 500 victory — its first since 1976 with David Pearson — and Bayne did it in a No. 21 Ford that was retrofitted to resemble Pearson’s famed ride. In just his second Sprint Cup start, 20-year-old Bayne stunned NASCAR’s biggest names with a thrilling overtime win Sunday at Daytona International Speedway, holding off Carl Edwards after fan favorite Dale Earnhardt Jr. crashed in NASCAR’s first attempt at a green-white-checkered flag finish. “Our first 500, are you kidding me?” said Bayne, who needed directions to Victory Lane. “Wow. This is unbelievable.” Unbelievable, indeed. Just one day after celebrating his 20th birthday and leaving his teenage years behind, the sport’s biggest race was captured by an aw-shucks Tennessean who shaves once a week and considers “Rugrats” his favorite TV show. The rookie had been great throughout Speedweeks, even proving his mettle by pushing four-time champion Jeff Gordon for most of a qualifying race. With the win, Bayne breaks Gordon’s mark as the youngest winner in Daytona 500 history. Gordon was 26 when he won the 500 in 1997. “I think it’s very cool. Trevor’s a good kid, and I love the Wood Brothers,” Gordon said. “I’m really happy for him. And I think it’s great for the sport. To have a young talent like that — he’s got that spark, you know?” The victory for NASCAR pioneers Leonard and Glen Wood ended a 10-
year losing streak, and came the week of the 10th anniversary of Dale Earnhardt’s fatal accident on the last lap of the 2001 Daytona 500. This was only the fourth win in last 20 years for Wood Brothers, which hasn’t run a full Sprint Cup season since 2006. And there were no plans to do so with Bayne, who drove in the Daytona 500 on a loaner from RoushFenway Racing. Bayne came onto the NASCAR scene in late 2009 with Michael Waltrip Racing but bolted

firstname.lastname@example.org In their final battle as conference rivals, the Utah Utes hit the UNM men’s basketball team the hardest. The Lobos, who were up as many as 13 points in the second half, never allowed the Utes to have the lead — at least until the final buzzer. As the buzzer expired, Utah’s Chris Hines hit an NBA-like 3-pointer to defeat the Lobos 62-60 at The Pit. “I knew we needed a shot up, UTAH 62 and I had to get it off,” Hines said. UNM 60 “The shot felt good. There are no words to explain it. We are building and it is a good confidence booster.” UNM head coach Steve Alford said the loss to Utah sums up the kind of season the Lobos are having. “We’ve had good fortune the last two years of winning close games, and we just can’t win the close ones this year, and tonight was evidence of that,” he said. “We shot 35 percent in our building, so shooting continues to plague us, and we just have to find ways to improve on that.” While the game will be remembered for many years to come, the Lobos could have closed this one out easily. But poor shooting once again afflicted UNM. UNM shot a season-low 35 percent en route to its third straight loss. Despite a 21-point effort from senior guard Dairese Gary and a huge double-double performance from center Drew Gordon, the Lobos couldn’t find a way to close out the Utes, even with the Utes missing puzzle pieces. The Utes were out their two best players. Jay Watkins missed Saturday’s game because of an injury suffered earlier in the season, and Will Clyburn suffered a foot injury in Utah’s game on Wednesday. He was the team’s leading scorer with

The Lobos lost the game 62-60 due to Utah’s last-second 3-pointer after holding the lead most of the game. 18.3 points per game and 8.4 rebounds per contest. Utah head coach Jim Boylen said he was thankful that the Utes escaped with the victory in their last visit to The Pit. The Utes jump ship from the MWC to the Pac-10 starting next year. “You teach your guys in that situation to get a shot up,” Boylen said. “It was a one-point game. ...
You just got to get a shot up. Maybe you rebound it. Maybe you put it back in. We didn’t have a timeout because I burned them all, but I thought our guys did a heck of a job. Maybe it was a miracle shot.” After another loss and an emotional blow, it’s crunch time for the Lobos with four MWC games left in the season. Alford said UNM will have to
pick up the pieces from the Utah stunner and look ahead to its next opponent. “I think it’s obvious,” Alford said. “There’s nothing to be happy about in a situation like this. We just have to find ways to pick things up and see how we can get better and ready for a team like UNLV.”

Despite great performance, Gordon blames himself by Cesar Davila
Hendrix@unm.edu Four and a half minutes into Saturday’s matchup with Utah, it was evident that UNM center Drew Gordon would have an impressive performance. Noticeably pumped up to face Utah’s two seven-foot giants (Jason Washburn and David Foster), Gordon started the game out-rebounding, out-hustling and even out-dunking everyone on the court. Gordon finished with 17 points and 23 rebounds, his seventh double-double of the season, but the Lobos dropped the contest 62-60. Gordon’s 23 rebounds are a NCAA season-high, a Mountain West Conference record and most by any player under head coach Steve Alford. But none of that mattered to Gordon, who took the blame for Saturday’s loss. “It’s all good that I accom-
plished that, but in the end we lost,” he said. “That’s what hurts the most.” It was a game that Gordon did almost everything in. He did it on the defensive, too. Gordon, a 6-foot-9-inch forward harassed the 7-foot-3-inch (Foster) and 7-foot (Washburn) centers. Both were held to a combined eight points and three boards. Gordon was perfect from the free-throw line, had an assist and recorded two blocks and a steal against the Utes. His defensive rebounding led to fast-break opportunities for the Lobos. Still, Gordon said he could’ve done more. “As great as all that is, I really feel like I lost the game,” he said. The Utes were held by the Lobos to 39 percent shooting, but were successful in the pick-androll offense, something Gordon struggled defending, especially on a key play at the end of the game.
“It’s what killed us; that’s why I missed a screen,” Gordon said. “That’s what they’d been doing well all game, so it ultimately hurt us a lot.” Alford said he acknowledged Gordon’s play — both good and bad. “Drew was really good on the backboard,” Alford said. “Pickand-roll defense is something else. But the job he did on the backboard was really good.” Gordon and the Lobos now have to rebound from this crushing loss and finish strong with four MWC games left in the regular season. Gordon said the Lobos will have to discuss their strategy and game plan before the next game. “Something is not quite clicking between us players,” he said. “Something’s not there that we need to gather and bring together in these last four games before the tournament.”
