The Independent Voice of UNM since 1895

ASUNM Senate opposes proposed fee hike by Svetlana Ozden

In an emergency meeting Wednesday, the ASUNM Senate unanimously passed a resolution in opposition to the proposed $77 increase in student fees. The Board of Regents is considering a proposal that would split the additional funding between Athletics and UNM Libraries. ASUNM President and Student Fee Review Board Vice Chair Jaymie Roybal said the Board of Regents has not offered a detailed outline of how student fees would be spent, but said a portion of it will pay off the Athletics Department’s $1.5 million debt. “It’s unnecessary and inappropriate,” Roybal said. “It’s not our responsibility to pay off the debt of any department. There needs to be more financial responsibility in every department, especially departments that use student fees.” GPSA President and SFRB Chair Katie Richardson said the proposed increase in tuition and fees would also pay for the e-journals for UNM libraries, something she said needs to be paid for through Instruction and General funding from the state, or tuition. “SFRB has been paying for the journals and they are inflating by 10 percent every year,” Richardson said. “We shouldn’t be paying for these costs because they are essential to student success. It is inappropriate that student fees are funding

journal costs.” According to the ASUNM resolution, the SFRB recommendation will expand services for students, including a 24-hour library, recreational service hours and tutoring services, and an increase above what was recommended by the board not only disregards the recommendations of the board, but is unnecessary. Roybal said any increase in tuition or student fees should be justified by specific claims as to how that money will serve students, something she said the regents have not done. “For every dollar we spend, we should get something in return,” Roybal said. “An increase in tuition and fees should only be used for concrete services with concrete benefits.” Roybal said the regents and Athletics representatives have been unclear about Athletics’ financial situation and what the money will be used for if the $77 increase passes. “There’s a lot of mistrust between the students and the regents,” Roybal said. “At the end of the entire process to just tack on an ($77) increase totally diminishes everything we’ve done.” Members of ASUNM will present the resolution to the Board of Regents on Friday during the budget meeting. The presentation will include a video produced by ASUNM Sen. Bridget Chavez that will share the stories of five students at UNM who will be unable to afford an increase in

If the proposal is approved, fees could be as high as $580 next year. “As a Senate we have to urge for student representation on board decision-making bodies,” ASUNM Attorney General and SFRB member Gregory Montoya-Mora said. “We should have a voice for any

Q&A with GPSA presidential hopeful

Marisa Silva

by Barbara Gomez-Aguinaga and Luke Holmen

Marisa Silva, a GPSA Representative from the history department, is the sole candidate for the GPSA presidency next year. She spoke with the Daily Lobo about what she hopes to accomplish if she is elected and what qualifies her for the position. Daily Lobo: Why did you decide to run for office? Marisa Silva: I decided to run for office because I wanted to pursue the goal of continuing increased fiscal responsibility, and also promoting graduate assistantships. We are living in a time of fiscal crisis and nationally we are

seeing some cuts; however, I feel that graduate assistantships are something we cannot afford to make at the University, especially as they’re related to promoting undergraduate and graduate recruitment, retention and completion of degrees. I’m a native New Mexican and I feel that we have many people from outside of the state (running the University). Some of them are very talented and I respect them very much, but many out-of-state faculty and administrators occupy leadership positions, and I feel that as a New Mexican, we need someone who knows our community’s needs and I really wanted to put diversity at the forefront of the UNM hiring processes, especially relating to faculty. I was willing to challenge (Current GPSA President) Katie Richardson (as an in-state leader) despite my tremendous amount of respect for her leadership (Richardson is from California). I feel that it is vital to put this diversity issue on the front page, and to continue in some of the great work that GPSA and (Richardson) in particular have already been doing to increase private assistantship funding for graduates. I have served on special sessions related to assistantship funding as a representative of the History Graduate Student Association. DL: What are your top three goals? MS: My three top goals are to increase graduate assistantship funding

at the University in order to promote graduate and undergraduate degree completion. The second would be to continue working toward greater fiscal responsibility at the University level in general, and that includes addressing this proposal by the regent majors during spring break to increase students fees and student tuition by 3 percent … This would hurt the goal of recruitment and degree completion. My last goal is to promote the hiring of faculty as well as collaboration across the University between student groups. DL: (un)Occupy Albuquerque protesters have been banned from protesting on UNM’s campus without a permit. Do you think it is appropriate for groups to apply for permits to protest, or should any group have that right at any time? MS: This University is a state institution and should be held to the First Amendment. Any group should have the right to free speech and non-violent assembly, especially at an institution of higher education. I do not believe you should have to apply for a permit to exercise a constitutional right. DL: What specific measures would you take to increase the funding for assistantships? MS: I was on the committee with GPSA and Graduate Employees Together (concerning assistantships) and we have already

dollar we are funding.” The ASUNM Senate considered an amendment to the resolution that would have stipulated how any increase in tuition and student fees would be spent if the regents decided to pass the increase, but the motion did not pass. “The most important part is

that we communicate that several departments need more fiscal responsibility,” ASUNM Sen. Caroline Muraida said. “Student fees are not a scapegoat or a last resort.” The Board of Regents is also considering a 3 percent tuition increase. The board is expected to finalize the budget April 27.

UNM needs bond funds to renovate by Miriam Belin New Mexico voters will decide whether to approve a bond that could mean a major facelift to UNM’s biology and chemistry departments. In November, New Mexico voters will vote on the $114.5 million General Obligation Bond C, $19 million of which would go toward construction at UNM. UNM would use $16 million for a large-scale renovation of Clark Hall, which houses the chemistry department, and $3 million to complete construction to Castetter Hall, which houses the biology department. Construction on Castetter Hall began in 2010, but the building remained unfinished after construction funds ran dry. Renovations to Clark Hall and Castetter Hall are part of the University’s 10-15 year Consolidated Master Plan. UNM is conducting a facility scan — evaluating the conditions of buildings on campus to decide whether to update or demolish. While the scan is not entirely complete, Provost Chaouki Abdallah said Clark Hall and Castetter Hall seem to be the University’s top priorities. If the bond passes, construction

could begin as early as next year. The bond funds would be split among 26 higher education institutions. University Planning Officer Mary Kenney said the facility scan will help put the bond funds to effective use in a difficult economic environment. “When we address some of the condition issues on our campus, it’s going to be important for us to understand, based on the academic plan and the strategic plan of the new president, where we are going to focus our resources because there’s just not enough money to go around and do everything we need to do,” she said. University Architect Robert Doran said after the unfinished floor of Castetter Hall is complete, it will include new teaching laboratories and offices. Kenney said Clark Hall needs major work, including structural renovations, interior updating and exterior remodeling. “We believe that we can really bring a whole new life to chemistry,” she said. “Chemistry is one of those foundational programs that feed pharmacy, nursing, School of Medicine and biology. It’s an essential building that needs to have renewal so that we can serve our students better and make sure that faculty have labs and offices that are appropriate for teaching.”

Photo Essay: Prepping the Pit

After the basketball season, the next big event for The Pit is the 16th annual Ty Murray Invitational, presented by the Professional Bull Riders (PBR). It is hosted by Ty Murray, a nine-time bull riding world champion and PBR co-founder. The top 35 bull riders in the world will be competing with the toughest bulls at the University Arena this weekend. New Mexico native L.J. Jenkins of Texico won first place last year. The Pit is the smallest arena PBR hosts, requiring only 40 tons of dirt, compared with other arenas that need up to 2,400 tons. Because of The Pit’s small entrance, only one tractor bucket can be hauled at a time. Filling The Pit takes more than four hours. Bull riding events will be held Friday at 8 p.m., Saturday at 7 p.m. and Sunday at 2 p.m. Tickets can be purchased at the UNM ticket outlets.

Computer takes on cancer by Jim Fitzgerald

The Associated Press

WHITE PLAINS, N.Y. — The medical training of IBM’s speedy Watson computer will continue with a residency at a renowned Manhattan cancer hospital. IBM and Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center said today that they will add the latest in oncology research and the hospital’s accumulated experience to Watson’s vast knowledge base, and keep updating it. The result should help the hospital diagnose and treat cancer more quickly, accurately and personally, they said.


“The capabilities are enormous,” said Dr. Larry Norton, deputy chief for breast cancer programs at Sloan-Kettering. “And unlike my medical students, Watson doesn’t forget anything.” Watson won fame by beating the world’s best “Jeopardy!” players. Applying its speed and language skills to medicine was a longtime goal at IBM, and Watson went to work last year for the health insurer Wellpoint Inc. The training at Sloan-Kettering will take time, and it may be the end of next year before patients at the hospital are benefiting from Watson’s speed and depth, said Dr. Martin Kohn, chief medical scientist at

IBM. If successful, the finished product could be used anywhere in the world to aid cancer treatment. Watson will be fed textbooks, medical journals and, with permission, individual medical records. Then it will be tested with increasingly complicated scenarios and assessed with the help of an advisory panel, Kohn said. It’s expected to speedily suggest diagnoses and recommend treatments, ranking several alternatives. The computer’s grasp of the scientific literature and ability to find the right passage in seconds will help doctors keep up with the everexpanding amount of available information, the doctors said.

in the session. It was a matter of time — the clock literally running out. DL: What specific measures would you take to ensure more diverse faculty are hired? MS: One of the things I need to do is research how faculty are hired. I am not sure what the areas of consideration are for faculty hiring and how points are assigned. But if there is a student voice that is clamoring for faculty that closely resembles our diverse population, that will be heard. I am hoping to keep in close contact with the Faculty Senate and ethnic centers and student organizations. The first phase of this would be a needs assessment of this committee. A wide variety of organizations would likely support greater diversity because it promotes retention. Retention of diverse groups is improved by diverse faculty. In undergraduate students, the attrition rates of men of color, for instance, are very low at this institution so I believe there is a sound rationale for hiring faculty to retain them through graduation, and these men

would be able to help mentor at-risk younger students. DL: Have you considered trying to get a student voice on boards that hire faculty? MS: Historically I need to do more research on that, but absolutely I think that would be an excellent step. DL: What qualifies you for the office of the presidency? MS: I have a long history of service to New Mexico in public school. I have seven years of experience teaching in Albuquerque and Las Cruces. I worked as a substitute teacher and education assistant, a high school teacher here at Valley High School in Albuquerque for five and a half years. I’m a bilingual educator and I feel that the multicultural diversity in New Mexico needs to be addressed by somebody who knows it. … I also have a very strong network with the student resource centers, including the Women’s Resource Center, the American Indian Student Services, African American Student Services and El Centro de la Raza.

drafted a resolution on the issue. There have been overtures made by the provost saying that he is on board with increasing those assistantships, but the official resolution is still subject to a vote with GPSA. That resolution has been drafted through six different departments and I imagine that will be on the ballot for our March 31 meeting. DL: Several bills GPSA advocated for at the State Legislature that would have increased funding for graduate students and created hiring incentives for recent graduates failed this year. How would you ensure that future bills supported by GPSA have a better chance at passing? MS: I know that those were very close and it was a matter of time running out, not a matter of the language, which was very positive and received a positive response from legislators. What we can do is make sure to generate more visibility through the media and partnerships with the community, and this will provide more of an incentive for legislators to hear the bill earlier

Student fee hike is still up for discussion by Jacob Wellman

Daily Lobo Guest Columnist Reflecting on the Tucson shootings last January, our nation’s president asked us to engage in civil dialogue while discussing the issues we are called on as citizens and community members to address. “As we discuss these issues, let each of us do so with a good dose of humility. Rather than pointing fingers or assigning blame, let’s use this occasion to expand our moral imaginations, to listen to each other more carefully, to sharpen our instincts for empathy and remind ourselves of all the ways that our hopes and dreams are bound together,” he said. There is no place where more hopes and dreams are shared by more passionate people than at a university — especially here at the University of New Mexico. We must remember these words as we move forward in discussing the hard issues of funding our educational system at UNM, and strive to fulfill our collective vision of a better, stronger University. Contrary to prior headlines and statements made this week, no decision has been made on any tuition, fees or budget. The Finance and Facilities meeting on March 12 was the first time regents discussed possible directions for a budget with administrators in a public meeting. This meeting was intended to start the formal and complex process of setting a budget for the coming year at UNM, which follows one of the most inclusive budgetary processes we’ve seen at the University, with the work of the Strategic Budget Leadership Team largely informing the scenario under consideration. At the regents’ Budget Summit, administrators will present preliminary budgets to be considered over the next month. During this month and at the meeting on Friday, the regents will listen to constituency leaders and members of the public on how these suggested budgets will impact them and the people they represent. Ultimately, we must make a decision on a scenario that helps the University become a stronger institution for New Mexico and our students, while keeping college affordable for current and future students. Responsibility for funding UNM is divided among the taxpayers of New Mexico (state appropriations), students and their families (tuition dollars), friends and alumni who believe in UNM so much that they donate their own money for others to experience higher education, and the funds that the University is able to self-generate. The state appropriations have been decided and approved by Gov. Martinez. Because of a new incentives-based formula, UNM has received an increase in state funds. This is rare in today’s economy. During his visit to Albuquerque in January, former University of Chicago President Don Randel told a national story of how America has begun to disinvest in higher education, with state appropriations creeping further down while the resources needed to educate students grow. It is commendable that New Mexico has seen the value of investing in our students, but after three years of sharp reductions in funding, we will still struggle to operate the University at an acceptable level. Even though we are plagued with abysmal graduation and retention rates, the entire UNM community has taken necessary steps to improve the education we provide


Dr. Peg’s Prescription Get the facts on organ donation

April is National Donate Life month. Are you an organ donor? If you are, thank you on behalf of a child or adult who will benefit from your generosity. If you are not, why not? Perhaps you just haven’t thought about it. You’re young and immortal, after all, right? Wrong. Or perhaps you have some misgivings based on lack of information. Since you’re all in midterm mode, I’ll use the familiar True/ False test mode to educate you. Don’t worry, it’s open book. Question 1: There are more than enough organs in the organ banks. They don’t need mine, too. Answer 1: False. Every day, 18 people in the U.S. die for lack of a donated organ that could have saved their life. That’s almost 7,000 a year, one every 80 minutes. In New Mexico, about 1,000 people are on the list, but only about 50 people a year actually donate organs. Question 2: My family will get hit with a big bill for harvesting my organs. Answer 2: False. There is no cost to the donor’s estate or family for organ donation and associated expenses. Question 3: If I’m injured or sick, they won’t try as hard to save me if they see I’m an organ donor. Answer 3: Totally False. What do you take doctors for, a bunch of unscrupulous mercenaries? Well, whether you do or not,

it’s still false. If you get mortally wounded or terminally ill, all efforts will be made to save you. Only after everything has been done and doctors have declared you officially brain dead will your organs be harvested. The only people who profit from your gift are the recipients, whose lives may be saved. Question 4: My religion forbids it. Answer 4: Probably false. Most major religions have nothing against this life-saving practice. Some leave it up to the individual while condoning the practice, and some outright encourage it as an act of human benevolence in keeping with their doctrine. Question 5: I have to be dead to donate my body parts. Answer 5: Creepy, I know, but false. You can donate blood, bone marrow and even more while you’re still alive. I know someone who gave part of her liver to save her brother’s life. Question 7: I’m too _______ (young, old, sick, damaged, etc.) to donate my organs. Answer 7: By now you’ve caught onto the answer pattern here. Yep, this one, too is false. There are no age limits on organ donations, and while some of your organs may not be usable, others might be. Possibilities for transplant include cornea, kidney, heart, liver, lung, pancreas and intestines. Surely at least one of those is in

New Mexicans. The provost’s academic plan, the crux of the answer to improving education at UNM, calls for new faculty hires, improved advising systems and new academic opportunities, such as an Honors College. This plan carries great promise to lead our state’s flagship University to becoming a leader in providing educational experiences to students across all disciplines. It also carries a price tag, one that in my opinion is prudent and necessary to fulfill. As we approach the next step in the budget process, I encourage students to keep in mind a fundamental truth for any consideration of increased tuition: while

all decision makers must be aware of the importance of keeping costs to students down, it may be more wise to invest in measures to help students graduate faster now, rather than cause students to pay for additional years of school because of unaddressed barriers to graduation. I look forward to your participation in the Budget Summit and hope than we can all come to a fair decision that will help our current students graduate and build us a stronger University for the future. Jacob Wellman is the UNM student regent. He can be reached at

decent shape. Don’t let your age or health status stop you from donating. Question 6: If I donate organs, I won’t be able to have an open-casket funeral. Answer 6: Also false. Your organs are inside you, remember? They can be surgically removed with no outward visible effects and you will still look peaceful and whole. Question 7: I can just tell my family to sell my organs. Answer 7: False. Don’t even think about it. Buying and selling organs is illegal. I know it isn’t easy to think about dying, and deciding to donate your organs means admitting you could die an unplanned death. Unfortunately, unplanned death happens all the time. I hope it doesn’t happen to you anytime soon, but if it did, wouldn’t you like to know that someone’s life could be saved even as yours was lost?

Obama visits NM oil town 

Student Health & Counseling (SHAC)

Pablo Martinez Monsivais / AP Photo President Barack Obama speaks during his visit to oil and gas production fields located on federal lands outside of Maljamar, N.M.

By Betsy Blaney

The Associated Press MALJAMAR — President Barack Obama traveled to the outskirts of a no-stoplight town in solid Republican territory Wednesday evening to promote his administration’s commitment to continued increases in domestic oil and gas development. Flanked by an idle oil pumpjack on federal lands in southeastern New Mexico’s Permian Basin, Obama told a crowd gathered in a cold wind that his administration has opened millions of acres of public lands in 23 states to production, has increased access to potential offshore resources by 75 percent and recently approved drilling of a field in the Gulf of Mexico that has the potential to produce 400 million barrels of oil. “If you hear anybody on TV saying that somehow we are against drilling for oil, then you’ll know that they either don’t know what they are talking about or they are not telling you the truth,” he said. “We are drilling all over the place.” The president, who was accompanied by Interior Secretary Ken Salazar, also reiterated his commitment to bringing down gas prices through an “all-ofthe-above” energy strategy that includes an increased focus on renewable energies. But he said there is “no connection between the amount of oil and gas we drill in this country and the price of gas” because global demands from countries like China are behind the rising prices. Republicans jumped on the visit to the state, which is one of a handful of key swing states in the November election, putting out statements blaming what they called his failed

energy policies for high gas prices. Rep. Steve Pearce, R-N.M., and others disputed Obama’s assertion that his policies have increased production on federal lands. “While oil production on private lands has increased, according to the Institute of Energy Research, oil production on federal land was down 11 percent in 2011,” Pearce said. Tim Wigley, president of Western Energy Alliance, said Obama’s “bureaucracies and broken policies are making energy development in the West increasingly difficult, time consuming, and cost prohibitive.” Obama made the stop in New Mexico en route from a tour of the nation’s largest solar plant in Boulder, Nev., to the site of future oil pipeline Oklahoma. Republican Gov. Susana Martinez and Roswell Mayor Del Jurney greeted the president when Air Force One landed in Roswell about 5:20 p.m. He then boarded Marine One and headed toward the oil fields outside the town of Maljamar, population 38. Protesters were also waiting for the president, some carrying signs opposing his administration’s consideration of listing the dunes sagebrush lizard as an endangered species. The oil and gas industry fears such a designation could curtail development. “Lizards don’t pay taxes,” read one sign held up by protesters gathered at the Roswell airport Wednesday afternoon. “Saving a lizard will starve a child,” read another. Complaints about a slow permitting process were also being echoed in advance of Obama’s visit to wells on federal lands outside of Maljamar. At lunchtime, oil field workers

were joined by White House officials in suits and ties at the town’s lone restaurant, Linda’s Grill. Maljamar resident Bill Gideon, 64-year-old husband to the grill’s namesake, sat there about an hour before grabbing a meal and going back to work. He owns L&B Trucking and his six trucks haul piping for drilling to oil rig sites all over the region. The economy is OK, he said, and people have jobs, but it could be busier. Companies have moved rig operations west because “the permits weren’t coming fast enough, it was slow,” Gideon said. His lunch companion, Wade Hood, is in the water delivery business, piping it to rig sites for use in hydraulic fracking. The slow permitting trickles back, he said. “When they start slowing down the process, the economy goes down,” Hood said. Still, Sam Cobb, the mayor of nearby Hobbs, said he was excited about the president’s visit. “We are anxious to show the president and his staff what we do in this part of the state, and we really want to be part of getting America energy independent,” he said. “We want to show the president that we are ready, willing and able … and hope we can work with the federal government in reducing barriers to achieve (that) goal.” Maljamar is about 280 miles southeast of Albuquerque near the Texas border. According to the menu at Linda’s Grill, “William Mitchell, president of Maljamar Oil & Gas Company, which brought the first oil well to southeastern New Mexico in 1926, reportedly named the town for his three children, Malcolm, Janet and Margaret.”

would bear more than one lamb at a time. He studied music under August Benoit Bertini, a French composer. He planned a musical career but ended up following in his father’s footsteps as an inventor. When he was 14 years old, he invented a rotary brushing wheel to clean husks from wheat for a local farmer. He conducted experiments with

kites that could lift men. He trained his Skye Terrier to growl steadily and manipulated the dog’s mouth and vocal cords to form the words “ow ah oo, gama-ma,” meaning “How are you, grandmother?” He wanted the phone greeting to be “Ahoy” instead of “Hello.” When Bell was buried in Nova Scotia, all telephones in the U.S. were silent for two minutes in his honor.

Members of the UNM choral program received a standing ovation in the Lincoln Center after their performance of René Clausen’s “Requiem” last weekend. Brad Ellingboe, director of choral activities, said recognition like that is rare in New York. “In New Mexico, everyone stands for everything all the time and I think that’s because they had been sitting a long time,” he said. “In New York, that’s a real mark of respect.” UNM sent 180 singers to perform the piece, written specifically for the UNM choir, at New York City’s Lincoln Center Sunday. Ellingboe said they performed the world debut of the piece last year at Popejoy. “Those people that got to be a part of this — really, it’s almost validation that the work that we’re doing here at UNM is really good on a national level,” Ellingboe said. The group, which performed

for more than 2,000 people, was composed of the University chorus and two small choirs from Cibola and Moriarty high schools. UNM student Darci Lobdell, Ellingboe’s secretary and personal assistant, said Sunday’s performance was emotional for the UNM students. “Usually with this production company, they take choirs from all over the place and put them all together, but we just brought all of UNM and made one giant choir,” Lobdell said. “It definitely had school pride in it as well as New Mexico pride. We were the only ones who have ever done this before.” “Requiem” was composed specifically for UNM, voice instructor Sam Shepperson said. With no prior recording to work off of, Shepperson said it was difficult to put the piece together at first. Working with a newly composed piece did have its benefits, Shepperson said, such as leaving a positive impression on the New York audience. “There’s a certain generic sound sometimes from a stage from New York

— the people that do it are so used to doing it. For us, we were really excited to be there,” he said. “We had worked hard to do it, and I think that the audience there felt that and realized what a special piece it was, and how much it meant for us to be there to perform it.” Performing at the Lincoln Center for the first time, Shepperson said he was thankful for the opportunity. “You’re performing on the same stage where Pavarotti once sang, or Domingo — all of these famous people once performed or still perform, so that’s special,” he said. Voice instructor and soprano soloist Leslie Umphrey said that the confidence UNM’s choir had going into Sunday’s performance was something that impressed the audience. “After the show, someone asked if we were a professional choir, and were surprised to find out that it’s our University concert choir and a few high school choirs from the Albuquerque area,” she said. “It was an overwhelmingly positive experience.”

party features aerial trapeze artists, stilt walkers, body painters, live music and beer, wine and tequila lounges, Armstrong-Strober said. “So we’ve definitely tried to create this kind of a rock-and-roll circus feel,” she said. “That’s sort of the feeling we’re going for. We’ve been to Burning Man; we’re all about creating art and in-the-moment spontaneity.” The lounges are available all weekend, as well as live entertainment. After Friday, Strober said there are more cooking demos, a chocolate-eating contest, a bounce house for the kids and a baking contest. Strober said eventgoers can sample myriad chocolate concoctions, including both sweet and savory dishes. For example, attendees can taste Chocolate Gelato Java Stout Beer Floats. There will also be gluten-free, all natural and organic options, such as raw vegan chocolate almond fudge. Armstrong-Strober said this year’s venue is five times larger than last year’s, to accommodate more vendors and attendees. Out of the 73 vendors, 95 percent of them are from New Mexico, and she said the rest are from surrounding states. She said the event is highly beneficial to the vendors, many of whom have day jobs to pay the bills while working to get their businesses off the ground. One vendor, Teri’s Sweet Garden, is a candy shop in Los Lunas that Teri Leahigh and her husband Mark started two years ago. For their first year

at the festival, they’ll have treats such as chocolate-covered Twinkies, fudge and cups of dirt. Leahigh said she always told her chocolate-fanatic father that she’d start a candy shop, so he could get his fix free. “Unfortunately, my dad had passed away before I was able to get the funds and do all the stuff it takes, but we have his pictures up in the shop here, and we named one of our candies after him, so he’s still here, but the final motivation was just ‘jump out of the boat and do it, do it for dad,’” she said. When customers come in, they tell her it’s like Disneyland, Leahigh said. She tries to create a kid-friendly atmosphere; if chocolate is broken, they can always melt it down, she said. “It’s all just fun, and that’s how I remember my dad,” she said. “We would go to the little chocolate shop and we would get chocolate and take it into (back in the day it was) Mervyn’s … so it was fun, chocolate was always fun.”

Fest mixes local food, NYC feel by Alexandra Swanberg

The Southwest Coffee and Chocolate Fest is more than a sampling of the buzz-inducing goodies in the region; it’s about supporting the local producers, so people can get their fix for years to come. Festival founders Dean Strober and Lena Armstrong-Strober moved to Albuquerque from Brooklyn a year and a half ago. Strober said they attended a wine festival in Bernalillo and had the idea for the coffee and chocolate festival. He said they wanted the festival to be as diverse as parties in New York City, instead of an event where people just walk around and sample chocolate and coffee. “The best kind of party is where there’s always something different going on, and you can really explore what’s in this room, what’s in that room, oh my god there’s flamenco dancers, oh look, aerialist trapeze performers, over here we’ve got a blues band,” he said. Strober primarily organized the event on his own, and during the last month, he said he’s been working 16 hours a day on five hours of sleep. Armstrong-Strober said Strober’s ambition and their mutual love for entertaining is what motivates them to put on the fest. This Friday, the fest kicks off with the Alien Tequila After Dark Chocolate Party for adults 21 years and older. The
