Alcohol Styrofoam can fizzles trash campaign at dorms stirs up debate by Elizabeth Cleary

Officials, students weigh pros, cons of drinking policy by Chelsea Erven

Lobo Village plans to allow alcohol for of-age residents when the dorms open in August, but no one ran that policy past the City Council. “It was never revealed to anyone here,” Councilor Isaac Benton said. The City Council in November denied UNM’s requests for a liquor license at The Pit. Lobo Village, however, isn’t required to apply for a liquor license from the council since the establishment isn’t selling alcohol, merely allowing students to have it at its facilities. Regardless, Benton said he doesn’t support Lobo Village’s alcohol policy. Lobo Village caters to older students who are of legal drinking age, said Walt Miller, vice president of Student Life. “It’s geared toward the upperclassmen, which leads us to the key part that they have to be of legal age,” he said. “We’re not permitting freshmen to live there, so that’s forcing at least a couple years of students being likely to be 21.” UNM’s alcohol policy applies to property owned, leased, or operated by the University. Alcohol consumption must comply with state and federal

The oversized soda can in the SUB is meant to demonstrate how small pieces of trash can turn into big problems, but the soda can is made of material that isn’t environmentally friendly. The soda can, which stands about 10 feet high, is made of Fiberglass and Styrofoam, said Adam Greenhood, the creative director of the Albuquerquebased Esparza Advertising firm. Greenhood’s firm designed the soda can, on display in the SUB basement, for New Mexico Clean and Beautiful’s litter prevention and control campaign, Toss No Mas. “This is not a pro-environmental campaign,” Greenhood said. “Just don’t throw stuff out.” The process for making polystyrene, the generic term for brand-name Styrofoam, “pollutes the air and creates large amounts of liquid and solid waste,” according to the Earth Resource Foundation’s website. The EPA classifies styrene, the basic building block for polystyrene, as a possible human carcinogen. Chemicals in food containers made from polystyrene can leak into food and cause health problems, the website said. Greenhood said the soda can will be transported and displayed in movie theaters, shopping malls and public functions around New Mexico. The SUB is the soda can’s Zach Gould / Daily Lobo second stop, and it will remain there for about the next two and a half The oversized soda can in the SUB is a part of Toss no Mas’ anti-littering campaign.

The GPSA presidential race kicked off Wednesday with the first of four debates, and candidates discussed student fee allocation, departmental cuts and student government transparency. Candidate Katie Richardson said GPSA should set an example as an open, inclusive government for the University. She said Athletics is over-funded and should not be propped up by student fees. “I absolutely am against using student money for these purposes,” she said. “Student fee money ought to be used towards the academic success of students — towards our recruitment, our retention and ultimately our graduation rates.” Richardson, Patricia Caballero, Jacob Candelaria and Joseph Dworak are among the four candidates.

Arguing that Athletics is a useful recruitment tool, Candelaria said it attracts minority students to higher education, and he said it should be financially supported. “I don’t think we can do a carte blanche, anti-Athletics approach because there are unintended consequences when you shrink those programs,” he said. “What we can do is make it open and transparent, and we can get to a level of subsidization that everyone is OK with.” Cabellero said GPSA should insist on participating in the budgetary process and gaining accurate facts to influence future departmental cuts. “Information is power, and we have not had the information,” she said. “The questions have been asked, and we all know that something is happening at that level that is not making sense,

“This is not a proenvironmental campaign. Just don’t throw stuff out.” ~Adam Greenhood Creative Director “This is money that could go into education, health care or other issues that are bigger than litter,” he said. Lobato said New Mexico faces challenges in keeping trash contained. “One of the challenges for New Mexico as a whole is our wind and properly contained trashcans,” he said. “Because if you have it where it’s open, it can actually blow away and create more litter.” Lobato said that more than 6,000 pieces of trash litter every mile of road in New Mexico. He said people litter because they don’t care about environmental welfare. “It’s been shown that they don’t care,” he said. “They think someone is going to pick up after them. They take no ownership in the environment.”


Candidates debate Athletics, budget by Kallie Red-Horse

When you read the nutrition facts on the back of the can, it has all of these really enlightening facts about the littering situation in New Mexico and how bad it is.” Joe Lobato, the director of the Toss No Mas campaign, said his campaign targets 18-35-year-olds because they litter more than people in other age groups. Lobato said the country spends $11.5 billion annually picking up trash.

Alcohol from page 1 law and will be allowed only in private rooms, according to the Rules and Regulations sections of Lobo Village’s lease, Lobo Village General Manager Brent McPherson said students under 21 found with alcohol or drunk will be punished. Written into the lease, alcohol containers exceeding one gallon are not permitted on the premises. It says alcohol consumption is not allowed in common amenities and interior hallways, and keg-cooling devices are also prohibited. The penalties for even the most minor violations of the Liquor Control Act include fines of up to $300, property


confiscation and imprisonment for up to seven months, according to the policy. Serious violations carry greater penalties, with larger fines and longer prison time. Lobo Village employee Ryan Benefiel said alcohol violations will be handled case by case. “It’s not my job to interpret the law,” he said. “It depends on each situation, but we will abide by those laws.” John Steiner, program manager for the Campus Office of Substance Abuse Prevention, said that alcohol at Lobo Village isn’t ideal. “My hope is that Lobo Village will be well-managed with respect to alcohol use, that guidelines for the use

of alcohol are developed and put in place before students move in, and that those guidelines and legal drinking age laws are properly enforced,” he said. Student Kelsey Grubb said that allowing alcohol at Lobo Village introduces potential for abuse of the rules. “I think it’s stupid,” she said. “We’re a dry campus, and if some people have alcohol, then it will just be shared with everyone, including underage residents and guests.” Student Romilly Tsinhnahjinnie said she doesn’t have a problem with Lobo Village’s alcohol policy. “I think it’s fine as long as people pay attention to the law,” she said.

I would bring this to the table to the proper areas of state government because if we don’t act there, we are never going to solve the problem.” Richardson said she is willing to work with undergraduates, but her loyalty lies with graduate students. “We need to be the leaders on this campus and reach across the aisle to undergraduates,” she said. “Where we share common interest, work together, but my priority is to protect the interests of graduate students. I will always stand with graduate students.”

but we have not been forthright in demanding to see reports.” Positive change can only be brought about through council and presidential collaboration, Dworak said. He said the $120,000 legislative cuts to graduate research will force GPSA to get creative in seeking alternate sources of funding. “Currently, each graduate student pays extra $22 more than undergraduates in student fees,” he said. “That is well over $100,000 and could be used to supplement graduate-only programs, like graduate research. Realistically, it wouldn’t be possible to allocate it through SFRB process, but we need to look at every option.” Richardson said she favored

Letter UNM is not broke; don’t let the regents tell you otherwise Editor, In 2009, according to the University’s audited financial statements, UNM had more than $753 million in liquid assets, including almost $178 million in cash. Additionally, UNM had reserves, represented by cash, of almost half a billion dollars ($484,528,511). I know this not because the University makes these statements widely available, but through the AAUP Collective Bargaining Congress chair. For several months, we have been hearing about dwindling state funding and the resultant cuts that the administration has been forced to make. What we haven’t heard about is these large reserves, or the increases in tuition revenue, as a result of tuition rate and enrollment increases. Both have largely negated the decreases in state funding. The Daily Lobo reported that the University recommended to the Board of Regents further cuts next year totaling more than $12 million, including nearly $900,000 to instructional budgets. Furthermore, a “significant rise in tuition” is almost inevitable, Faculty Senate President Richard Wood said. Regent Jamie Koch was quoted as saying, “I have no problem raising tuition if we’ve done everything to lower our costs.” This narrative that the administration has done everything it can to lower costs and that cuts must now be made is commonplace and utterly false. Among the University’s other recommendations to the regents: a meager $300,000 cut to Athletics. And UNM still has more than 20 vice presidents, many, if not all, taking home large six-figure salaries. And what of those massive cash reserves? Cutting another $900,000 from instructional budgets would be devastating, leading to layoffs, furloughs and pay cuts. But that $900,000 represents just 0.11 percent of the $753 million in liquid assets. The administration’s predictable response is that using up these reserves will hurt UNM’s bond rating. I’m no economist, but how much damage can that 0.1 percent really cause? Provost Suzanne Ortega recommended cutting $6,000 in instruction and general support from the Office of International Programs and Studies each of the next two years, replacing that money by increasing student fees. These are major cuts to a valuable program that will be imposed on students, yet insignificant in light of UNM’s reserves. By all means, UNM should strive to be more efficient, but making unnecessary cuts to the University’s academic mission, especially ahead of cuts to luxuries like Athletics and vice presidents’ salaries, is inexcusable. As E. J. Dionne recently said in the Washington Post, and Michael Moore said from the steps of the Wisconsin state capital, “America is not broke.” UNM is not broke, either.

Letters Liberal ideology denies that people can make bad choices Editor, It’s interesting how the writer of Tuesday’s “welfare queen” letter makes a statement that has a touch of truth. She then flips that truth like a burger, attacks the person she cited, offers no proof to support her attack statements, then wraps her monologue with a parting shot to reinforce her attack. Well done, Ms. Kay Simmons. Ronald Reagan did point out there were “welfare queens.” I was there. I heard what he said and read what he wrote. He never made it racial; Simmons did by attacking Reagan with a “straw man” argument. And Simmons’ backhanded attack portrays all who question welfare as racists. Why did she do this? The reality is that the people who are on/qualify for welfare are in this position for three reasons supported by empirical research: 1. Unmarried moms. Most are high school dropouts, have neither the education nor work skills to justify being hired for anything but low-paying jobs. The cost to feed and clothe a growing kid means living on welfare at taxpayers’ expense. I did say most.

Poor students should not be subsidizing UNM shortfalls Editor, I am writing in response to Daily Lobo reporter Shaun Griswold’s piece, “Tuition bump on the horizon,” to express my disappointment that the ASUNM president is “optimistic” that tuition will go up by 8-10 percent. Translation: He is “optimistic” that New Mexico resident undergraduates will enjoy a $300 tuition increase for fall 2011. What a defeatist attitude! There is no reason why students, one of the poorest demographics nationally, should have to subsidize the University with tuition and fee increases. Is it not enough that tuition and fees for resident undergraduates have increased by marginally more than 100 percent in the last 10 years? Is it not enough that the average undergraduate completing their degree this semester will owe roughly $25,000 in student loans?

2. High school dropouts send a message to an employer: This person has little focus and self-discipline, and may have difficulty reading manuals and other instructions. Employers might question if these employees can communicate properly with customers. 3. Those with a criminal history, often involving drugs. Employers are responsible for the employees’ actions. If an employee has a history of theft, violent crime, drug use and commits a crime during work, the employer can face financial loss via a lawsuit. Just ask the law school folks who will argue the employer knew that employee presented a danger; hence he is financially responsible, not the criminal who owns nothing. Reagan and others argue that any person who fits into these three groups is there by choice. Other than by rape, it is your choice to put yourself into these categories. It is the progressive/liberal ideology that denies this truth and demands that taxpayers give them our money. Hubert Humphrey and Daniel Patrick Moynihan spoke about the deteriorating family because of expanding welfare. Humphrey spoke about the disintegration of the “negro family” as a direct consequence of the “Great Society” welfare programs imposed by LBJ. Reagan did not make it racial; Humphrey and Simmons have. Job growth and the “welfare queen” have nothing in common, except for what

Simmons has done: Take a fact, twist it and imply that Reagan — and by subtle implication his supporters — have racial bias as their issue rather than job growth. Simmons is quite clever. Is she running for office soon? This century has seen the permanent loss of 8 million U.S. manufacturing jobs. The EPA and state regulations, tax laws, the cost of mandates and liability are the factors that impact job creation and loss. The cost of natural gas used to fire porcelain sinks, tubs, toilets is less in Mexico than in New Mexico, and so is the cost of labor and benefits. It is less expensive to harvest chile in Hatch and take the crop to Mexico and roast them than to do so in the U.S. Brazil will drill in the Gulf of Mexico using funding that comes from the export/import bank. Some of that funding is our tax dollars. We prohibit drilling and do not give that financial support to U.S. corporations. China will drill in the Caribbean. Do you think those nation’s oil companies have to comply with U.S. law, pay taxes, provide benefits and hire U.S. citizens? Simmons, rather than the attack you mounted, look at the serious problems our nation faces and their causes so you can offer constructive solutions.

What will it be for those graduating in three or four years’ time — $30,000? $40,000? Unfortunately, I’d say this is a likely scenario if ongoing fiscal trends continue and given that the Lottery Scholarship is on its last legs. I thought that UNM was a public institution that is in the business of providing a public service meant to be affordable and accessible to all. I thought UNM was meant to offer a wealth of quality classes taught by tenure and tenure-track faculty. Instead we are heading into a future where students are asked to pay exponentially rising tuition costs for classes (what few are left after budget cuts force program cancellations) that are bigger than ever and are almost entirely taught by underpaid part-timers on semester-to-semester contracts. I urge all who read this to consider whether an 8-10 percent rise in tuition is the way forward. Is the only solution to the so-called budget crisis placing the largest burden on those who can least afford it? I think not. Ask yourselves this: Where else is there money on this campus? Is it within the bloated administration where the average salary is over $250,000 and annual

deferred compensation packages can range into the hundreds of thousands of dollars? Is it within the millions of instructional dollars siphoned off into non-academic programs like the UNM Foundation, the Alumni Association and intercollegiate athletics? Is it within the roughly threefourths of a billion (yes, billion!) dollars that UNM has in liquid assets (including nearly $200,000,000 in cash)? If you find that this negligence by UNM toward those it is meant to serve makes you angry or upset, I encourage you to tell the Board of Regents and UNM administration. On March 28, the UNM Board of Regents will convene in the SUB (Ballroom C, 9 a.m.) for its annual “Budget Summit.” Let them know that you won’t stand for rising tuition in the face of a diminishing quality of education. Let them know that they don’t have to squeeze students dry as they already have the money to avert the “budget crisis.” I and many others who feel as you do look forward to you joining us Monday in the SUB to let our voice be heard.

Berry to decide on redlight camera viability Albuquerque officials say the city is losing money on the red-light runner cameras. KOB-TV reports Mayor Richard Berry could decide within the next 30 days whether to pull the plug. In January, Albuquerque changed yellow lights so they last longer at red-light camera intersections because a study suggested it would lower the amount of crashes. Wrecks went down and fewer tickets are being issued. That means less money for the city. City councilor Dan Lewis says the city’s red-light camera fund that pays for the program has about $700,000 left and it’s costing about $100,000 a month to run it. That gives the city seven more months of funding before the mayor would have to start dipping into the city budget to pay for it.

Drug lord’s in-law detained by E. Eduardo Castillo Associated Press

MEXICO CITY — Mexican authorities detained an in-law of top drug lord Joaquin “El Chapo” Guzman who allegedly ran a transnational drug operation that reached as far as Ecuador, federal police said Wednesday. The suspect, Victor Manuel Felix, is both an in-law of Guzman, the head of Mexico’s Sinaloa cartel, and the godfather of one of the drug lord’s children. He is know by the nickname “El Senor,” roughly “Mister” or “The Man.” Ramon Pequeno, the head of antidrug operations for Mexico’s federal police, said Felix ran a financial network for the Sinaloa cartel, Mexico’s most powerful gang. Pequeno said eight other people had been detained in Mexico along with Felix in raids in three Mexican states that began last week. He said the raids also netted about a half ton of cocaine. Authorities in Ecuador said they conducted raids on a half dozen properties in that South American country, acting on information provided by Mexican authorities.

Eduardo Verdugo/ AP Photo Ramon Pequeno, head of Mexico’s federal police anti-narcotics division, answers questions at a news conference Wednesday in Mexico City. Mexican authorities detained Victor Manuel Felix, an in-law of top drug lord Joaquin “El Chapo” Guzman. Felix is Guzman’s in-law and the godfather of one of the drug lord’s children. The raids in Ecuador resulted in the detention of nine suspects there — four Ecuadoreans, two Colombians and three Mexicans. More than 4.1 metric tons of cocaine also were seized, said Col. Rodrigo Suarez, the operations director of Ecuador’s national police. Suarez said the organization “was responsible for buying and storing cocaine and exporting it to Mexico.” Elsewhere in Mexico, the navy announced it had detained seven local police officers, most from the Monterrey suburb of San Nicolas de los Garza, on suspicion of working for drug cartels.

The navy statement did not say what evidence there was against the officers, but corruption is commonplace in local police forces in Mexico. In the western state of Michoacan, state prosecutors reported that unidentified gunmen killed the police chief of the town of La Piedad as he headed home late Tuesday. Jose Luis Guerrero had taken the La Piedad post Jan. 21. He was the third police chief killed so far this year in Michoacan, home to the violent La Familia drug cartel. Shell casings found at the scene of Guerrero’s killing were the type of ammunition favored by Mexico’s drug cartels, authorities said.

“Everyone is a moon and has a dark side which he never shows to anybody.”

Junfu Han/ Daily Lobo Cast as the “old man,” actor Tino Brokaw uses a wheelchair for his role in “The Ghost Sonata.” In the play, the characters mask their true selves, while the protagonist tries to expose them for what they really are.

unmasking the ‘monsters’ by Alexandra Swanberg

Acknowledging the murky part of humanity is what UNM theater student Van Hollenbeck looks to do in his directorial debut. “The Ghost Sonata,” an abstract piece centered on the protagonist’s search for truth in tortured souls, premieres Friday at Theatre X. Hollenbeck said he’s trying to expose

unfiltered truth. He said the characters’ struggle is concealing their darker selves, a common human conflict. “We have two selves — the self that we put out front and sort of show people, and then there’s something darker and more hideous within us that’s trying to creep out, and we’re always battling it,” he said. “There’s a monster in every one of us.”

The spiritually conflicted characters coexist in a house, the play’s setting. The relationships are complex and unclear. What’s not important is that the audience understands the narrative or details of the relationships, since the play is emotional, Hollenbeck said. In the house, the characters hide their true selves to mask their past seedy natures. The façade wears thin as the “student” digs

Junfu Han / Daily Lobo Director Van Hollenbeck sits in the stands at Theatre X during Wednesday’s dress rehearsal of “The Ghost Sonata.” This piece marks Hollenbeck’s directorial debut.

“We have two selves — the self that we put out front and sort of show people, and then there’s something darker and more hideous within us that’s trying to creep out, and we’re always battling it.” ~Van Hollenbeck Director deeper into the character’s lives by befriending the “daughter.” In the play, the “daughter” says that, “In madhouses, people say everything they think,” underscoring the play’s social stance. When August Strindberg wrote the play in 1907, Hollenbeck said, society frowned upon unbarred personal expression, considering it a mental problem. That belief, he said, holds true today. “I think a lot of the codes and signals that we use in society are based on hiding our true selves,” he said. “Whether those true selves are innately bad or innately good, it’s all about concealing. I think that’s really our culture today, because if somebody expresses their uncensored personal truth, it’s taken as madness or irregularity.” Hollenbeck said writers like Strindberg saw the darker side of humanity and focused on people concealing their true nature from the outside world. Throughout the play, the “student” breaks down the characters’ false reality. A self-proclaimed “embittered optimist,” Hollenbeck said he sees parallels between the “student’s”

experience and his own. “I see it as the illusion breaking down, the sort of puppetry and smoke and mirrors of this pseudopurgatory world he’s in kind of breaking down and finally collapsing at the end,” Hollenbeck said. “It’s like, yeah, the world is kind of a miserable place to be in, yet somehow that’s OK, that there’s a faint glimmer of hope. As faint as it is, it means everything — that it’s so tiny and, yet, it’s enough to light up the world.” Hollenbeck said he identifies with the “student’s” desire for honesty, encouraging a dialogue between him, the cast and the design team. The play’s abstract nature focuses on morbid emotions, which Hollenbeck said attracted him to the production. “With realism, it’s always about fighting back the emotion,” he said. “When you get into less realist works, not always, but there is a tendency to sort of let the emotions play out on stage. I think what I would say is that it strikes me as more truthful.”

Hollenbeck said he had a clear idea of what he wanted the performance to look like, and actors were given a rigid framework to develop their characters. “There’s a lot in it happening really fast, and that’s kind of the way I wanted it, but I do think there may be some hurdles in understanding,” he said. “However, ambiguity can be effective if the actors know exactly what they’re doing. ... So even if you don’t know what they’re talking about, you feel what they’re talking about.” When the play came together, Hollenbeck said he discovered the faint hope Strindberg alludes to, despite Hollenbeck’s initial unease about being a first-time director. He said the experience taught him that life’s downfalls are worth enduring. “I think my experience trying to get this play up has sort of proven to me its relevance,” he said. “It’s a difficult process getting a play from

Bring a toothbrush to the robotic invasion by Alexandra Swanberg

They’re in homes, at workplaces. It’s the March of the Robots, Quelab’s monthly public expo that takes place Saturday. The always-evolving hackerspace encourages ingenuity. Quelab’s communications czar Adric Menning said that the word “robot� brings to people’s minds a narrow view of a broad invention. He said robots can be programmed for all tasks and are becoming integral parts of the world. “We want to encourage people when they’re building their bristle bots to go wild with however they decorate them, trick them out, things like that,� Menning said. Quelab invited guests to present robots they’ve made. Featured robots include a camera bot that users can

control through a Wi-Fi connection between the bot and a cell phone, and the MakerBot, which, when given a specific code, melts plastic and prints a layer-by-layer 3-dimensional plastic object. People can also visit a craft table where they can make bristle bots, simple robots made using toothbrush heads that can move after being attached to a simple circuit. They then use these robots for sumo matches or races, and the team found a way to hack into Roombas to control their movement. And they can battle. Quelab’s marketing czar Walter Duran said the two previous expos brought about 30-50 participants. “When people hear the idea, they see the potential for a good time,� he said. “It’s such a joy to see people coming here not quite knowing what to expect and getting really creative and

have a great time with it.� Quelab has been Albuquerque’s hackerspace since 2009, and it is part of an expanding international audience. Bringing together people focused on creation and not consumption, Duran said, is a growing movement. “It’s actually kind of a worldwide movement,� he said. “I believe there are hackerspaces in every major city in the U.S.� Quelab Director Gabe Ortiz said the movement originated in Europe in the 1980s when hackerspaces were private and high-tech junkies constituted a special interest group. Since then, he said, the movement has grown and become more visible to the public. Last month, Noisebridge, San Francisco’s hackerspace, put on a fashion show that tried to fool face-sensing technology. He said this is one example of what such a space can become. “It’s not just the whole electrical

engineer stuff,� Duran said. “It’s artistic; it’s whatever people want to make out of it. I think it’s hard for people to come here and not be stimulated.� When he first thought of opening Quelab, Ortiz wanted to develop a place uninhibited by deadlines but also intellectually stimulating. Members can use the facilities for $35 a month, and nonmembers pay $5 a session. Quelab isn’t just an atmosphere that gets the synapses firing, Ortiz said, but a place where everyone brings something to the table. “I think it was a need people didn’t realize they had,� he said. “As soon as a

lot of us heard of the idea, we were like, ‘Oh yeah. That’s exactly what I need,’ a place to hang out with people who have these knowledge domains, skills, and just bounce ideas off of them, and figure out if what you’re doing is completely ridiculous or feasible.� Duran said that the team’s enthusiasm for its work inspires people to pursue creative endeavors. “I think New Mexico just has something about attracting talented people and people who are particularly passionate about what they do,� he said. “So we’re giving them the venue to participate in that, and sharing with other people is great.�
