Tuition bump on the horizon

TOURNAMENT TENSION

Students want increase spent on academics by Shaun Griswold shaun24@unm.edu

ASUNM senators held an emergency meeting Monday night about UNM’s $5.4 million budget shortfall and subsequent measures to bump up tuition costs. The Board of Regents is expected to recommend an 8-10 percent increase on top of a 3.2 percent increase mandated by the state Legislature, a tuition increase of roughly $300 per student. “I’m optimistic tuition is going to stay around 8-10 percent,” ASUNM President Laz Cardenas said. “I have to applaud the administration for including ASUNM. However, although I am optimistic, I am skeptical.” The regents will determine next month how much to raise tuition and how that money will be spent. Cardenas said he called the emergency meeting because he’s concerned the administration hasn’t detailed where additional tuition has been allocated within the University.

All aboard the jolly, drunken trolley by Shannon Alexander sralex2@gmail.com

Albuquerque residents will soon have an alternative to calling a cab or designating a driver when drinking. Student Paul Aitken is opening a trolley service that will operate from Thursday-Sunday from 8 p.m.-3 a.m. He said he got the trolley idea after spending time abroad and using public transportation to get around while drinking. “You just text us where you want to get picked up,” Aitken said. “As long as it’s within our region, that’s fine.” Cinco de Mayo marks the trolley’s soft opening, with the hard launch slated for August. The trolley will operate within a two-mile radius of campus and take passengers to University-area locations. It costs $5 to ride. Aitken said he plans to distribute keychain cards in August that have the trolley’s phone number and contact instructions. He said that customers must contact the trolley 30 minutes before their

preferred pickup time. “We’re here to help the community by deterring drunk driving,” Aitken said, “We’re here to help the students by giving them an alternative way to get around and a fun way.”

“We’re here to help the community by deterring drunk driving.” ~Paul Aitken Student The bus will run on locally produced biodiesel fuel, but Aitken plans to produce his own fuel in the future. He said that biodiesel is cheaper and better for the environment. Student Seth Kaplan said that the trolley will likely decrease drunk driving. “I think that’s a great idea,” he said. “The more options you have for drinkers, the less of an option there is to go get in a car.”

Journalists detained in Libya Associated Press BENGHAZI, Libya — Two journalists working for a French news agency and a photographer traveling with them have gone missing in Libya while reporting on the fighting between Moammar Gadhafi’s forces and rebels, the agency said Sunday. Agence France-Presse said the journalists went missing Saturday morning while working near the eastern city of Tobruk, not far from the border with Egypt. That

They were accompanied by a photographer for Getty Images, Joe Raedle, who is also missing. AFP said the journalists planned to meet opponents of Gadhafi and interview people fleeing the fighting. Several foreign journalists

have been arrested by Libyan authorities during the uprising that began Feb. 15. An Al-Jazeera cameraman and a Libyan journalist have also been killed. Those being held include four journalists for The New York Times who were detained by government forces during fighting last week in the east. The newspaper reported Friday that Libyan forces said they would release them, but there has been no confirmation that they have been freed.

The Senate approved a resolution asking the administration to balance tuition increases and maintain UNM’s academic standards, keep costs low for students and avoid cutting core classes or faculty positions. The resolution also asked administrators to set up a website tracking how tuition dollars are spent. Cardenas co-wrote the resolution and read it to the full ASUNM Senate. “Our tuition is expected to go less to executive salaries and more toward faculty and academic programs,” he said. Nearly 30 people attended the meeting to hear and debate the joint resolution, which was sponsored by Sen. Nick Ramos. The resolution was addressed to other University governing bodies, including President David Schmidly, the regents, the Provost’s Office, Faculty Senate President Richard Wood and GPSA President Lissa Knudsen. Knudsen attended the meeting and said she does not support a tuition increase, but will not be surprised when tuition goes up. “I genuinely believe creating any additional barriers to education is not a good long-term strategy,” she said. “It may seem unrealistic or

inevitable, but somebody needs to think it. We need to get back to the drawing board and looking at what we thought was impossible and making it possible.”

What was announced Monday was an intermediate step and not final approval to drill. A drilling permit will be required for that. A moratorium on deepwater drilling in the Gulf imposed after last year’s BP oil spill was lifted Oct. 12, but the government has only recently begun issuing permits against for previously suspended activities.

Vereen must complete two years of probation or he will have to finish the five-year sentence he received in November 2009 after pleading guilty to buggery and trespassing. The SunNews of Myrtle Beach first reported Vereen’s release. The owner said she spent several nights in the barn after catching Vereen having sex with the animal on surveillance tapes. She feared he had returned because her horse was acting strange and getting infections again.

Other groups developed cost-containment measures that could potentially offset UNM’s budget shortfall and deter a high tuition increase.

NEW ORLEANS — Federal regulators have put oil giant Shell one step closer to final approval to drill three new exploratory deepwater wells in the Gulf of Mexico. Interior Secretary Ken Salazar says the project, 130 miles off the Louisiana coast, meets strict safety and environmental requirements. Shell Offshore Inc., a unit of Royal Dutch Shell PLC, proposes to drill three exploratory wells in roughly 2,950 feet of water.

“If it was up to me, the top salaries would go to the best teachers, not to administrators. And I was an administrator myself.”

Murray, an educator for more than 35 years, said schools systems like UNM are top heavy with administrators who receive the highest salaries. “If it was up to me, the top salaries would go to the best teachers, not to administrators. I was an administrator myself,” he said. “A great majority of administrators’ contribution to educating a student is minuscule compared to what a teacher in a classroom is doing. There are too many ineffective administrators.” Student Dan Quan said cutting administration salaries could help struggling departments. “It’s really needed in some places,” he said. “The chemistry department is pretty run down, and you wonder why a lot of the students are not chemistry majors. … A lot of chemistry classes are lab- based, but the classes for the labs can’t really handle anything.” Student John Tennison said he would be more open to the idea of a tuition increase if the money were going to improve the quality of education. “If I knew the money was going to that, I’d be more willing to accept the tuition increase, than if it was going to administrators,” he said.

Letter Media focuses more on Japan nuclear tragedy, not heroism Editor, We are members of UNM’s Student Chapter of the American Nuclear Society. Our organization is dedicated to the study and application of nuclear processes as applied to the service of human energy needs and to other fields of study. As you know, the earthquake and tsunami affecting Japan served as the initiating cause for an accident at the Fukushima Daiichi Nuclear Generating Station, about 235 miles north of Tokyo. The severe earthquake caused the breakdown and loss of communications infrastructure and caused sketchy, inaccurate and misleading information to be diffused through media. The purpose of this letter is to help provide readership with the correct information: On March 11 at 02:46:23 p.m. (March 10 at 10:46:23 p.m. in Albuquerque) a 9.0 magnitude earthquake originated 231 miles northeast of Tokyo and 80 miles east of Sendai, Honshu, in the bottom of the Pacific Ocean, at a depth of about 15.2 miles. The severe devastation is widespread, with expected loss of life in the thousands. The Fukushima Daiichi plant’s safety systems immediately and successfully reacted shutting down its three (out of six) operating reactors. There are other concerns, though. We believe it is important to realize that not a single human life has been lost because of the 54 active nuclear reactors in Japan, even after the earthquake and tsunami. This is a testament to the knowledge, training and dedication of Fukushima Daiichi Plant technical personnel. These are the real heroes. It is also useful to remember that this situation is still unfolding. The final count of lives, property and damages is still far in the future. We understand our efforts should be directed at bringing home the thousands who are still missing and bringing relief to the untold numbers who will not have a decent meal or a bed to lie on tonight. We see an irresponsible and sensationalistic media focus on something that, although important, should take a back seat to a much, much larger human tragedy. We offer our deepest sympathy to the people of Japan.

“Try non-drug measures first.”

by Peggy Spencer, M.D. Daily Lobo Columnist

A 2,700 juniper pollen count may sound high, and it is, but it is nothing compared with a 8.9 Richter count. We have no right to whine about allergies while people in Japan are bravely surviving a terrible natural disaster. So before I get into advice about how to fix a runny nose, I want to acknowledge the tragedy and heroism across the sea. It has been a sobering week. Hay fever is far less serious to manage than tsunamis, and we are fortunate in New Mexico that one of our worst natural irritants is merely pollen. That said, pollen can be irritating, and it is here in full force. Allergies tend to be bad here because our climate is dry, and the pollen doesn’t get rained out of the air. Add to that our famous spring winds, and the result is a full snoot. If you never had seasonal allergies anywhere else you lived, you have a good chance of developing them here. Trees are the major offenders in the spring, ones like juniper and mulberry. In the summer, grass is the worst, and in the fall it’s weeds. Animal dander, dust and mold are other common causes of respiratory allergies. If you already have problems with these, the seasonal stuff multiplies the response, and the result is misery. Seasonal allergies symptoms include itchy watery eyes, runny nose, sneezing, coughing, wheezing, headache and itchy skin. Some people get wheezy lungs, too, and many feel draggy and fatigued.

All is not lost. There are things you can do. Here they are, in order of increasing technical difficulty: Avoid the allergens. An allergen is whatever you’re allergic to. Now, obviously you have to breathe, and you have to be outdoors sometimes, so you can’t completely avoid pollen. But you might be able to stay indoors when the wind and pollen counts are high. Or you can wear a dust mask if you must be outdoors. Get the allergens out of your environment. If you have indoor-outdoor pets, wipe them down when they come in. Even if you can’t see it, they are covered with dust and pollen. A damp paper towel will work. Wash your pillowcase often, so you don’t inhale deposited pollen particles while you sleep. Close your windows at night. Trees drop most of their pollen in the wee hours, so don’t leave an open invitation, so to speak. You can get special pillow and mattress covers to protect you from dust mites if you’re allergic. Keep your place clean if you’re allergic to dust. Consider an air filter if it gets bad. Get the allergens off of you. Wash or rinse your hair before bed. Shower after time outdoors. Dare to try a sinus rinse. You use a squeeze bottle or teapot-like item called a neti pot that you fill with salt water and pour up your nose to rinse out your sinuses. Follow with a quick gargle. Not only does this wash the pollens and other allergens from inside your nose and throat, it also loosens the mucous and makes it much easier to clear. I have some patients who do a sinus rinse twice a day and don’t have to do anything else or take any meds for their allergies. It may sound gross, but once you try it, you’ll never stop. Take allergy medicine. From topical to oral, from over-the-counter (OTC) to prescription, there are lots of drugs that block the allergic response or treat the symptoms. As with any medication, I recommend starting low and going slow. Try OTC eye drops and nasal sprays first, then OTC pills. Antihistamines are the class that blocks the allergic response. You can get all available antihistamines over the counter as of this month. Decongestants are useful and decrease swelling in the nose; expectorants help loosen mucous, and cough suppressants soothe incessant hack-

ing. If OTC remedies fail, see your health care provider for a prescription. If you start wheezing or have asthma with your allergies, you should see a medical provider. Remember, all drugs have potential side effects and interactions with other drugs. Try non-drug measures first. If you are the herbal type, the following substances are rated as “possibly effective” by the Natural Medicines Comprehensive Database. Pycnogenol is a natural antihistamine made from the bark of the French Marine Pine and shows some promise, especially if you start it before allergy season. Lots of people use Stinging Nettle for allergies, although the research is a little slim. Butterbur root or leaf is effective, but make sure that you get the kind that is UPA-free. That means the natural carcinogens in the plant have been extracted. Phleum pratense, otherwise known as Timothy grass, an expensive racehorse delicacy, works for some people, as does tinospora cordifolia, or heart-leaved moonseed. But be careful of that last one if you’re diabetic. Allergy shots are the last resort of the desperately, miserably allergic, whose symptoms don’t respond to all the other measures above. If this is you, you need to see an allergist and get skin testing to see exactly what you’re allergic to. The allergist will then formulate a special serum made up of minute amounts of your unique allergens and give them to you by injection several times a week for a few years, until you are no longer allergic. This is expensive, time consuming and not always successful, but worth trying if you have tried everything else and are still really suffering. Lastly, remember the words of the wise man or woman who said, “This too shall pass.” Nothing is permanent. Life is always changing, and the pollen will eventually subside. Gesundheit!

Seven days later, case unfolds Attorney says woman misled investigators in fabrication of yoga store murder by Eric Tucker

Associated Press ROCKVILLE, Md. — An employee at an upscale yoga clothing shop killed a co-worker who found what was suspected to be stolen merchandise in her bag, then tried to conceal the crime by tying herself up and blaming the attack on two masked men, a prosecutor said Monday. Brittany Norwood was ordered held without bond on a charge of first-degree murder after Montgomery County State’s Attorney John McCarthy described the slaying. McCarthy said Norwood, 28, developed an elaborate ruse to convince authorities she and the dead woman, Jayna Murray, had been attacked. “Her cunning and her ability to lie is almost unparalleled,” McCarthy said of Norwood. When Norwood was found the morning of March 12 inside the Bethesda shop, she told police that she and Murray, 30, had been sexually assaulted by two masked men who came in the previous night after closing time. Norwood was found with minor scratches and other wounds, her hands and feet bound. Police initially treated Norwood as a rape victim, offering rewards for information leading to arrests and even doing surveillance on a person of interest. But detectives concluded her account didn’t add up. They now say neither woman was sexually assaulted. Norwood’s blood was found inside Murray’s car, McCarthy said. Only two sets of bloody footprints were found inside the shop, and

workers at the adjacent Apple store reported hearing two women arguing when the attack was believed to have happened. The injuries on Norwood’s body were determined to have been self-inflicted. “No one could have ever anticipated seven or eight days ago that we would be standing here telling you what we are telling you today,” McCarthy told the judge. Norwood appeared via videoconference from the jail where she is being held. She rarely spoke during the brief hearing, and her public defender declined to comment as he left court.

“Her cunning and her ability to lie is almost unparalleled.” ~John McCarthy Montgomery County State Attorney McCarthy offered new details about what happened before Murray died, saying she had been asked by a store manager to check Norwood’s bag for stolen merchandise. She called the manager that night to say she believed Norwood had been stealing. Later that night, after the store closed, Norwood told Murray she needed to get back into the store because she left her wallet. When the two returned, they argued over the suspected theft, McCarthy said. Norwood then picked up some sort of weapon inside the store and used it to beat Murray for as long as 20 minutes throughout the shop, McCarthy said.

He said Norwood put on a size14 shoe, used by the store to measure the length of pants, to track Murray’s blood throughout the shop and throw off detectives. “The nature of this crime is shocking in terms of the level of violence that was directed at the victim,” McCarthy said. Appearing Monday on ABC’s “Good Morning America,” Murray’s parents said only that they believe in the justice system and that they will let the case work its course. The Lululemon shop remained locked Monday morning, with strips of yellow police tape still attached to the door and its windows covered from view by large pieces of brown paper. Businesses along the street displayed white ribbons in Murray’s memory. The killing stunned residents and workers in Bethesda, an affluent suburb northwest of Washington where violent crime is rare. Some people said Murray’s death gave them a heightened sense of their surroundings and made them think twice about walking outside late at night. On Monday, some in the area said they were somewhat relieved to know that there weren’t two killers on the loose as first thought. Jill Kolakowski, 36, of nearby Chevy Chase, said she’s been inside Lululemon and even thought Norwood looked familiar when she saw her on the news. The killing was striking because it seemed so random, she said. “How much of a relief is it really when it could be a woman who babysat your children or a woman who sold you workout clothing?” Kolakowski asked.

Mine death toll on the rise by Abdul Sattar Associated Press

SORANGE, Pakistan — Rescuers used shovels and bare hands Monday to dig out miners buried after a gas explosion deep in a coal mine in southwestern Pakistan, lining up wooden caskets to await the bodies from an accident that left 52 feared dead. More than 200 people stood outside the mine waiting to help or hear news from the search, but since the accident Sunday only bodies — 27

of them — have been recovered. “We have yet to dig out and search the remaining two wings, but there is zero percent chance we can get anybody alive,� said government mine inspector Iftikhar Ahmed. Ahmed said the mine, owned by the state-run Pakistan Mineral Development Corporation, was declared dangerous two weeks ago due to the presence of methane gas, but the warning was ignored by the contractor working it. Methane gas is a major cause of coal mine explosions around the world. It can also cause asphyxiation. Ghulam Mohammad said he feared for the lives of his friends. “None of my five roommates have been found dead or alive yet,� said the 30-year-old, who finished his shift just hours before the explosion. Seven of the victims recovered so far were from a single family from the Swat Valley in northwest Pakistan. The search for the bodies was slowed by the presence of the gas and the fragile state of the mine,

which prevented the use of heavy machinery, he said. Ten of the dead were charred from the explosion and ensuing fire, while the others appeared to have been killed by falling debris or suffocation, said Ahmed. The bodies were at a depth of about 2,000 feet (600 meters), but the mine continues down to 4,000 feet (1,200 meters). Ghulam Rasool, a 25-year-old miner who spent all morning searching for victims, said the work was exhausting and hampered by gas. “The mine’s wooden support has collapsed at many points, leaving huge chunks of debris blocking the way,� he said. The mine is located in Sorange in Baluchistan province, 25 miles (40 kilometers) east of the provincial capital, Quetta. Mining — for gems, marble, granite, chromite and coal — is one of the only industries in much of Baluchistan and northwest Pakistan. But it has attracted very little foreign investment in recent years due to the precarious security situation. Accidents are commonplace.

Junfu Han / Daily Lobo Bob Wire cruises on a basketball court while practicing bike polo outside the Heights Community Center on Feb 24. The sport probably began in India, according to Bikepolo.com, because British troops wanted to keep their horse polo skills sharp, so they hopped on bikes.

Polo requires poise, balance by Hunter Riley hriley@unm.edu

A bike polo game looks kind of like a dance — a dance on bikes, with mallets. The players ride their bikes back and forth on a basketball court, trying to hit a ball the size of a large egg into the goal. The most important skill for a bike polo player is patience, and being able to ride with one hand, two-year bike polo veteran Sebastian Beers said. And he said learning to fall gracefully is essential. “Bike polo helps you develop every possible skill you would need on a bike as far as avoiding crashes, turning and sprints,” he said. “The best thing to do when you get into a crash on a bike is to come off the bike. So if you stay on the bike there is a lot more shock and things to hit.” To outsiders, the game looks brutal since players race down the field to goals, swinging metal sticks wildly, and occasionally falling off their bikes into, hopefully, an unoccupied concrete space. It’s normally a three-on-three

game with two goals, and the players use a makeshift mallet. In this case, it’s made out of a piece of cut gas pipe attached to an old ski pole. The bikes they use need to be able to take a beating, said Bret Chouinard, who organized ABQ Bike Polo two years ago. He said when a player tries to shoot the ball between the bike wheels, the mallet rails against the frame. Some of the bike polo players have as many as 10 bikes, he said, and use certain bikes for casual riding and bike polo. Some players use mountain bikes, while others use fixed gears or free-wheel bikes. He said polo bikes need to have good clearance from the ground so players can shoot in between the wheels, low gears and breaks that can be operated with one hand. “It’s really hard at first to control your bike with one hand, and do something else with the other hand,” he said. “And then you get used to it and get really good at it. You find yourself riding on the street with one ... and maybe texting with the other.”

Junfu Han / Daily Lobo Sebastian Beers tries to control the ball in a game of bike polo Feb. 24. Beers and bike polo players meet three times each week to play.

Blackout delivers New Mexican folk by Graham Gentz gbgentz@unm.edu

Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s like Blackout sits down and says, â&#x20AC;&#x153;How are we going to be exceptional today?â&#x20AC;? Blackout doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t just put on plays. The theater company alchemizes run-of-the-mill plays into theatrical gold. Blackout is back with original work again with â&#x20AC;&#x153;The Sparrowâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Daughter: A Cuento.â&#x20AC;? Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a New Mexican ghost and family story. The atmosphere is a macabre Latin American magical realism. Wicked, creepy Blackout touches pour in. There is a shuddering, creaking set composed of old shipping planks; a dreadful shadow puppet work of Shannon Flynn; and the final touch â&#x20AC;&#x201D; a gigantic Jabberwocky nightmare that is the terrifying shape-shifter â&#x20AC;&#x153;Cucuy.â&#x20AC;? Christopher Walsh classes up the joint by sitting alone at the edge of stage and providing â&#x20AC;&#x153;Dead Manâ&#x20AC;?-esque live music, from the Jim Jarmusch film. The show stars Rachel Leos, also known as the Best Thing About UNMâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s â&#x20AC;&#x153;No Exit.â&#x20AC;? She is unabashedly marvelous and natural from the beginning to the showâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s killer last line. Not a member of Blackout Core, Leosâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; talent makes her noticeable because she makes acting look effortless. Friends of Blackout, Ericka Olvera and William Johnson, return to perform alongside the Blackout Core. It is always a pleasure when they perform, and it is good to see them back. Whatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s really great is there are no weak links. There are six cast members, not the largest nor the smallest, with half being Blackout Core members. But with all the talent floating around Blackout Theatre Company, you may not be aware of how phenomenal Leonard Madrid is. Heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a three-time Kennedy Centerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Award for Latino/a playwrights winner. Heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a finalist for the John Cauble short-play competition. He is also the LatinoWorks winner for the Association for Theatre in Higher Learning. And he happens to be one of the best actors youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll ever see. Madrid last starred as a detestable, domineering ringmaster in Blackoutâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s, â&#x20AC;&#x153;The Circus Plays.â&#x20AC;? Like all Blackout shows, the acting was phenomenal, but Madrid shined brightly.

In â&#x20AC;&#x153;The Sparrowâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Daughter,â&#x20AC;? Madrid gets quite a bit to do, which is better for the audience.  He plays Leosâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; father, and the scenes between the two flow beautifully. Their chemistry is pure, and their love for each other is palpable. Without ruining the detail, thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s some sublimely heartwrenching stuff onstage, and itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s hard not to be sucked in.  But then you add Lauren Poole as a comic mother losing her identity and you have the best stage family you could ask for. Expect plenty of humor in the cultural tags of New Mexican life, such as characters who speak with an EspaĂąola accent or a character referred to as, â&#x20AC;&#x153;the creepy lady from church,â&#x20AC;? that will tickle New Mexico natives and longtime transplants.  To top it off, the tickets are cheap, half the price of other theater tickets around town.  So what are you waiting for? If youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re a fan of amazing things, youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll probably want to see the second and final weekend of â&#x20AC;&#x153;The Sparrowâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Daughter.â&#x20AC;? You wonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t regret it.

culture@dailylobo.com It took Odysseus 10 years to get back to his wife, and while it took me only 12 hours on a Greyhound bus to get from Oklahoma to Albuquerque, the ride was just as much an odyssey. What follows is a blurry recollection of the trip. Journey forth with caution: The wait The bus was supposed to leave at 9 p.m., but it was running late. Two hours late. I should have known bad things awaited me as the cashier at the counter refused to provide service to the three people waiting. Or maybe I should have paid attention to the woman crying in the lobby who was stuck at the station. She said she waited for hours at Norman for a bus that never came. I had to convince myself that wouldn’t happen to me. In the lobby, an old man begged not for cigarettes, but cigarette wrapping paper. A one-legged man walked in and out the station to smoke stubs of cigarettes. A woman stormed in, ran to the bathroom, came back and then demanded toilet paper to which the Greyhound officials eventually responded. I should note traveling by bus, there is less security. The bag claim took two seconds, and at no point did any Greyhound official frisk me. This glimmer delivered me through the two-hour wait and into the crazy depths that is the Greyhound bus. Boarding My first impression of the Greyhound clientele is that most of them don’t understand the concept of a line. That is, when the bus arrived everyone poured out, and stood in a giant glob at the front door. Getting on the bus was one part luck, one part timing, and one part willingness to elbow an old lady in the face for your spot. Also, watch out for cigarette burns. The majority of riders smoke, and they do so until the last possible second. This means they throw their cigarettes out at the door of the bus, when there are still plenty of people around. As bad as boarding the bus was, it wasn’t terrible sitting on it. The seats are roomy, and there are two outlets per seat. Also, the bus has Wifi, which is the only thing a college student needs to survive. This would be the perfect traveling condition if Satre’s maxim, “Hell is other people,” wasn’t true. The Ride, Part I People were rowdy getting on the bus, and they stayed that way for a while. The second thing I learned about Greyhound riders: A surprising number of them are felons. The lady in front of me talked about why methadone was worse than meth, her reasons for quitting shoplifting — the fines were really adding up — and told stories about her previous two boyfriends. She dumped

both because they got arrested and thrown in jail. Keep in mind, she was not talking to me, or the person next to her, but on a phone so that the whole bus could hear. Behind me, two guys talked about cigarettes and weed. Apparently one of them only eats pot raw now because smoking it doesn’t give him the same effect. At some points, writing falls short of conveying the absolute madness that came out of people’s mouths. For example, this needs to be captured verbatim: “And we are all on food stamps at the halfway house, so one guy goes into the grocery store and spends them all on ice cream. For three weeks, he ate nothing but ice cream ’cause we sure as hell weren’t sharing.” After awhile, everything quieted down, and everyone struggled to sleep on the seats that leaned back, but not far enough. Our collective necks rubbernecked till Amarillo. An interlude of mundane proportions We stopped in Amarillo, and everyone poured off the bus. The terminal was designated a non-smoking area, so about 20 people rushed into the smoking area, a 10-footby-10-foot pen, and lit up. Initially, I tried to join them. There’s a sense of solidarity that all smokers share, even when they are corralled into a cage like animals. I had to shove my way in, and I was just about to light up, when I saw a 12-year-old kid smoking a cigarette. At first, I thought he had a bad case of the Benjamin Button disease, but then I realized, ‘No he really is 12. And smoking.’ Surely, his parents would have something to say about that. “Yeah I started smoking when I was around 9 years old,” he told the crowd as it watched him like he was a performing circus monkey. “They thought it was hilarious. I have been smoking ever since. It helps with depression.” I stepped out of the smoking area and smoked my cigarette in peace while two guys talked about the best way to draw breasts. (Note: Draw them larger when in doubt.) The Ride, Part II It was 4 a.m. when we got back on the bus, and the crowd had quieted once again. That is, most of it had, save for the children on the bus who decided that 4 a.m. was the best time to throw a party, by which I mean scream their lungs out. Here’s a recollection from the woman sitting next to me as she tried reasoning with her 18-monthold child. “OK, Bubba. Time to sleep.” The child screamed. “No really, Bubba. It’s time to sleep.” The child screamed louder. “Goddamn it Bubba. Stop it!” Surprisingly, the child didn’t not stop. He eventually tired him-

self out, and the bus was silent till Albuquerque. The unloading Getting off the bus at 8 a.m., I felt nothing. The reality of riding the bus had ended, but my brain couldn’t comprehend it. My legs’ movement felt foreign and unrealistic, yet somehow it happened. My journey ended, but they were people headed to L.A. or Phoenix or Portland who would be on the bus for another two days. I wished them the best, but they only stared at me with glazed eyes that flared slightly with jealousy when I told them my trip was done. Don’t get me wrong: There are pros to the bus. You can work on homework; the ticket’s cheaper, and it’s probably safer than flying, but you just have to keep in mind there’s a trade-off. If you’re looking for something you have never experienced before, then by all means ride the Greyhound, but don’t say I didn’t warn you.

Heels overcome in chaotic finish by Ryan Tomari

The fifth-seeded North Carolina womUNC 86 en’s basketball defeated KENTUCKY 74 fourth-seeded Kentucky 86-74 in the second round of the women’s NCAA tournament. The Tar Heels’ victory earned them a Saturday date with top-seeded Stanford in the Sweet 16. UNC head coach Sylvia Hatchell said the second-round game was a chess match between her and Kentucky head coach Matthew Mitchell. “We had a lot of people contributing, and that’s what it takes to be a championship team,” she said. What it also took was a heavy dose of Tar Heels’ guard Italee Lucas. The Wildcats had no answer for Lucas in the first half. At intermission, she led all scorers with 11

points and finished with a teamhigh 22 points, in addition to her seven rebounds and five assists. Lucas sealed Kentucky’s fate with her second 3-pointer of the contest, hitting an open trey from the corner that put UNC up 76-70 with 1:40 left. Lucas said she told the rest of the team to stay aggressive in the final minutes. “We just kept pushing,” she said. “You might think you’re tired, but you can’t be this time of the season when you have crucial games like this.” North Carolina was up as much as 15 with 15:06 left in the game, but Kentucky whittled the lead, and with 7:36 to go, the Wildcats’ Keyla Snowden hit a 3-pointer that cut the Tar Heels’ lead to 63-60. It didn’t get any easier for the Tar Heels, and closing out the Wildcats was a task. After a pair of UNC free throws, Kentucky’s Jennifer O’Neill hit a 3-pointer that cut the Heels’ lead to 67-65 with 6:22 left. Kentucky, however, couldn’t overcome even the smallest deficit, and UNC went on a 19-9 in the final five minutes. The Wildcats were led by senior forward Victoria Dunlap. Dunlap, who was voted the Southeastern Conference’s women’s Player of the Year, finished with a game-high 23 points. Although she and the Wildcats won’t move on in the tourney, Dunlap capped a terrific college career. She is second all-time at Kentucky in seven statistical categories

including points (1,846) rebounds (1,101) blocks (178), free throws attempted (714), free throws made (445) and double-doubles (31). Dunlap said the Wildcats didn’t play the same type of basketball they had all season. “It was just a matter of us not coming into the game and playing the way we needed to play the game,” she said. “It started from the beginning because we got up a couple of times and got down a couple of times.” UNC beat up Kentucky under the basket, holding a 55-31 advantage on the glass. North Carolina’s Jessica Breland and Krista Gross dominated the boards. They both finished with double-doubles and combined for 20 rebounds. Breland said the second-chance points were big for the Tar Heels. “It all started with the rebounding,” she said. “Once we got the rebounds, we have great passers, Tierra (Ruffin-Prant) is probably the best one on the team who could just get the rebound and look straight ahead. I was able to find Italee out on the break, and I think Kentucky — they rebound really well — I guess it was kind of a surprise when we got the boards.” Mitchell said the game was spirited between the schools, but he was disappointed in his team’s effort. “I’m really upset about this game,” he said. “My job as a coach is to try to motivate and inspire the players. We did not play inspired basketball in this tournament, and I take a lot of the blame for that.”

Defensive schemes befuddle Lobos Associated Press TUSCALOOSA, Ala. — Trevor Releford’s speedy drives,  Tony Mitchell’s high-flying dunks and an effective ALA. 74 dose of full-court UNM 67 pressure kept Alabama alive in the National Invitation Tournament. Mitchell scored 23 points and Releford matched his career-high with 20 to lead the Crimson Tide to a 74-67 win over New Mexico Monday night in the second round of the NIT. The Tide (23-11), mostly known for its defense, made 15 of 20 shots in the second half to move into the quarterfinals. Alabama will host Miami on Wednesday night, aiming for its sixth trip to the NIT final four at Madison Square Garden. “I think our guys are excited to still have an opportunity to continue to play and continue to try to play for a championship,” Tide coach Anthony Grant said. Kendall Williams  led New Mexico (22-13) with 18 points, including a couple of 3-pointers in the final 35 seconds to cut it to a six-point deficit.

Then Charvez Davis hit one of two free throws with 24 seconds left to make it a three-possession game and the Lobos missed their 3-point attempt, anyway. Davis finished with 14 points and hit half of Alabama’s six 3-pointers. Mitchell was 8-of-11 shooting while Releford, a freshman point guard, added six rebounds and six assists and frequently drove the lane. “Trevor all year has done an outstanding job not necessarily in scoring but in getting other guys shots, doing a great job defensively,” Grant said. “That’s what you want to see out of your basketball team, that when the opportunity presents itself different guys step up. I think that’s the mark of a good team.” Leading scorer  JaMychal Green didn’t score for the first 31 minutes and finished with six points and seven rebounds. He played only 20 minutes because of foul trouble. Phillip McDonald  had 12 points and  Drew Gordon  added 11 for New Mexico. Williams, who became the sixth freshman in the Mountain West Conference to score 400 points, and McDonald were each 4 of 9 from 3-point range.
