UNM cuts VP’s job to trim budget by Leah Valencia Daily Lobo

Zach Gould / Daily Lobo Darington Hobson stares at the floor during Tuesday’s news conference at the Davalos Center. Hobson announced he will forego his senior season in pursuit of his NBA dreams.

Hobson will test the waters of the NBA draft by Isaac Avilucea Daily Lobo

Such cavalier attire for such a momentous decision. Darington Hobson, dressed in a long-sleeved, cherry mesh shirt, black basketball shorts and retro Jordans, with shin-high Nike socks, announced Tuesday that he will forego his senior season with the UNM men’s basketball team and enter the 2010 NBA Draft. “I feel like this is what I was put on Earth to do,” Hobson said. Hobson will not hire an agent,

leaving open the possibility he could return to the Lobos. In the end, whether he forges ahead or opts to return to school, Hobson said much of that’s dependent on how high his draft projection is come May 8, the last day to withdraw from the NBA Draft without compromising his NCAA eligibility. If he is on the bubble of being a second-round selection, Hobson said he will return to college. Conversely, if it’s apparent he’s a lock to go in the first round — where he will receive a guaranteed contract — Hobson’s days in a UNM uniform are over. From May 1 to 7, Hobson will likely

partake in a series of individual workouts with a number of NBA organizations, he said. By no means was it a clear-cut, take-the-money-and-run decision. Hobson said a day didn’t pass where he didn’t waffle. “I went back and forth every single day, every hour, every minute, every second of every day,” he said. “Just the relationship I have with the coaches and my teammates is what made it so hard. This is the first time I can actually say I have family. It was hard for me, but at the same time, this is a dream of mine that I’ve had since I was a

little kid.” But as the deadline (April 25) to throw his name in the lot approached, the decision was easier. And why not? What, if anything, does Hobson have left to accomplish at the collegiate level? He led the team in scoring, rebounding and assists, marking the first time in history a Lobo accomplished such a feat. All of this happened during a season in which the Lobos smashed school records for most wins in a season, received an at-large bid to the NCAA tournament and won a tournament game for the first time in 11 years.

Police offer $1K for info on stabbing by Pat Lohmann Daily Lobo

The Albuquerque Metro Crime Stoppers is offering a $1,000 reward for information leading to the arrest of the man who stabbed a UNM student on campus Feb. 15. Crime Stoppers made the on-campus attack its “Crime of the Week,” which ran on the Crime Stoppers Web site from April 8 until today. UNMPD spokesman Robert Haarhues said the department enlisted the help of Crime Stoppers after its stream of tipsters began to run dry. “We haven’t stopped working on it. It’s just things have slowed down since our leads started to fizzle out a little bit,” he said. “When it first

happened, we were inundated with people calling in.” Haarhues said that since Feb. 15, UNMPD detectives have tracked down and been disappointed by more than 20 leads. He said UNMPD employs two full-time detectives and two part-time detectives. Both fulltime detectives were designated to work on the Feb. 15 stabbing case. “This is our highest priority,” he said. Haarhues said UNMPD has also reached out to the Albuquerque Police Department to use some of the department’s background databases, but he wouldn’t specify which ones. This is uncharted territory for UNMPD, Haarhues said. Officers can’t remember the last time such a violent attack happened on

Crime Stoppers’ $1,000 reward for information leading to Feb. 15 stabber arrest: Call 843-STOP or 843-7867 campus, he said. “The campus is pretty safe. We didn’t have a whole lot of craziness going on,” he said. “Most people come here to get an education; unfortunately, there are just some bad apples out there that are here to cause harm to others.” At about 7:55 p.m. on Feb. 15, a 41-year-old student and employee was stabbed in the neck near the Anthropology Building. The assailant stole the woman’s cell phone, and the woman might have bled to death if not for the help of her fellow students.

As purse strings are drawn tighter at UNM, Steve Beffort’s position of vice president of Institution Support Services, which he has held for 2 1/2 years, will be eliminated. Beffort started his career at the Anderson School of Management and after eight years of moving up, he will be retiring from the empire he has helped build. “I think most rewarding has been all of the people, all the students, and being able to actually provide physical facilities to support the great programs here at the University,” he said. “Over the last seven years that I have been involved in this, we have built almost $1 billion worth of buildings.” University spokeswoman Susan McKinsey said the vice president position, created in 2007, will be eliminated for the foreseeable future due to the University’s economic situation. “Determinations of this magnitude are made on a case-by-case basis,” she said. “In this case, the action was economically driven.” McKinsey said Executive Vice President for Administration David Harris, President David Schmidly and the Board of Regents all signed off on positions that can be left unfilled to save money. According to the UNM Budget Office, the elimination of this position will save the University $174,600. Beffort’s salary of $193,800, as listed in the UNM Salaries Book, has traditionally been funded through the I&G pool, McKinsey said. Schmidly announced last week that he will be eliminating two vice president positions, saving the University about $431,500. However, Raymond Sanchez, president of the Board of Regents, said earlier this year that cutting out VP salaries would not largely address the University’s fiscal issues. “I think, if you look at the total amount, we have about a $2 billion budget, but if you look at salaries, the overall percentage going to administrative salaries is very, very small,” he said. Sanchez said that though the money saved would help, overall it would have little affect on the budget. “It is money that could help maybe some scholarships and stuff,” he said. “But the overall picture — it is not going to be that large of an impact.” McKinsey said Institutional Support Services will continue to report to Harris. However, the daily operations and responsibilities have not been finalized. Harris said in a press release that

Authorities: Plane’s crew likely dead after crash MORGANTON, Ga. — Military authorities say all four crew members aboard a Navy plane that crashed in north Georgia woods are believed dead. Naval Air Station Pensacola spokesman Harry White tells the Associated Press that all four are presumed dead, though authorities are still seeking the body of one of the victims of Monday’s crash. He says authorities reached that conclusion Tuesday as a team of at least seven military personnel arrived and began scouring the wreckage. Fannin County Sheriff ’s Office Maj. Keith Bosen says the team arrived about 2 p.m. and entered dense woods where the wreckage remained overnight. He says a sixperson civilian crew contracted by the military also is on hand. The Florida-based T-39N Sabreliner just missed a house when it crashed.

Man guilty of spreading AIDS may not be released ALBANY, N.Y. — A New York man who was convicted of knowingly infecting at least 13 women with the AIDS virus has completed his prison sentence, but he may face civil confinement as a sex offender. Attorney General Andrew Cuomo wants Nushawn Williams held under a law that allows for keeping the most dangerous sex offenders out of communities after they have served their sentences. Williams completed a 12-year sentence Tuesday. Williams infected the women in western New York in the late 1990s. He had said at the time that he didn’t believe health officials who told him he was HIV positive.


The process of determining whether Williams’ mental state justifies confinement or intensive supervision could take months. Williams will be held until then. He now goes by the name Shyteek Johnson.

Former hospital director accused of molestation LONG BEACH, Calif. — The former director of one of California’s largest state mental hospitals repeatedly molested a friend of his adopted son in the 1970s, the nowgrown man testified Tuesday. The testimony led off a preliminary hearing to determine if there is enough evidence to try Claude Foulk on 35 counts of sexually abusing one of his four foster sons from 1992 to 2004. The witness testified that he was 9 or 10 when Foulk’s adopted son brought him home for a visit and Foulk touched the witness inappropriately and tried to sodomize him. “I never been exposed to anything sexually. ... I just froze,” said the man, who was referred to in court as Richard Desmond W. “It was nothing that had ever happened to me. He was an authority figure.” Foulk, 62, was fired as executive director of Napa State Hospital after his February arrest. He has pleaded not guilty. Prosecutors contend a dozen other men have come forward recently to claim Foulk molested them when they were boys.

Still no trial date set for suspected airline bomber DETROIT— Federal prosecutors said Tuesday they have shared hundreds of documents and other evidence with lawyers for a Nigerian man charged with trying to blow up a Detroit-bound plane on

Beffort would continue working quarter-time for the University to aid in the transition and work on specific projects. Beffort said he will be focusing his time on operations of Lobo Energy Inc., Lobo Development Inc. and UNM’s presence at Mesa del Sol. “Those three things are things that are currently part of our responsibility but haven’t had as much attention as


maybe we should be giving them,” he said. “My part time will be focused on that.” Harris said he is glad to have Beffort continuing with UNM even if only as part time. “We’re fortunate to have someone of his caliber agree to continue on in this capacity and to mentor the young managers who will fill his role,” he said.

Considering all the facts, Lobo head coach Steve Alford said Hobson would be delusional not to pursue a professional career. “He’s nuts not to do what he’s doing today,” Alford said. “He should test the waters. Anytime you got a chance to be in the first round and get guaranteed money playing the game you love, I think those are opportunities you got to look at.” An echo of supports could be heard throughout the Davalos Center, where Hobson’s teammates were busy drilling inside the Lobos’ practice facility. Though it will undoubtedly affect the dynamics of the team, point guard Dairese Gary harbored no ill will toward Hobson’s decision to leave. “If somebody can go somewhere, do what they love and make money doing it, why not be happy for them?” Gary said. That’s not to say he won’t be missed by fans, teammates and coaches, both for his over-the-top persona, candid nature as well as his basketball skills — all of which added to his endearing mystique. Still, Alford looks at the promising


Christmas Day. A judge held a 6-minute hearing solely to “take the temperature” of the case against Umar Farouk Abdulmutallab, who was not in court. No trial date was set and there was no discussion of his cooperation with authorities or any possible plea bargain. Abdulmutallab is accused of trying to detonate a bomb hidden in his underwear on an Amsterdamto-Detroit flight December 25 last year. Assistant U.S. Attorney Cathleen Corken said the government has turned over a substantial amount of evidence, including FBI reports and video surveillance, but that more still needs to be done. She did not elaborate on what the video shows. Defense lawyer Jill Price said it takes much time to show evidence to Abdulmutallab because visiting hours are limited at a federal prison in Milan, Mich., where he’s being held. U.S. District Judge Nancy Edmunds didn’t set a trial date but asked for another update on June 22. Any challenges to evidence must be filed by Sept. 10. High-ranking officials, including FBI Director Robert Mueller, have said Abdulmutallab has been cooperating with investigators. Miriam Siefer, head of the four-lawyer defense team, stuck to her policy of not commenting Tuesday. A woman who said she was a first-class passenger on Northwest Airlines Flight 253 traveled from Montreal to attend the hearing. Outside court, Shama Chopra said her water bottle was used to help extinguish the fire set by Abdulmutallab in his seat. “We don’t want Abdulmutallab to get a plea deal,” Chopra, 54, said, referring to herself and her husband. “We want a full trial to get fair justice.”

big picture of Hobson’s decision. “Would we like, selfishly, to have Darington back next year? Yeah,” Alford said. “But anytime you’re producing first-round picks, it tells you what your program’s doing.” Meanwhile, Hobson only wants to have as big of an impact in the NBA as he did for the Lobos. The maturation of his game was on display to see this year. Hobson said he played in pickup games with several NBA players, like Brandon Jennings, Kevin Love and Chauncey Billups at the Impact Basketball training facilities in Las Vegas. Principally, though, Hobson said the crux of being a good NBA player isn’t about being physically prepared so much as being mentally equipped to handle the turbulent NBA lifestyle. “It’s a business, and it’s a grind, especially for young rookies,” Hobson said. “You’re coming in and trying to take a veteran — you’re trying to come take their job and they’re trying to feed their family. It’s very cutthroat.” At worse, Hobson knows he has a home in Loboland. “If things don’t work out,” Hobson said, “I can still come back to my family.”

Letter GPSA forum well moderated, student attendance wanted Editor, The GPSA President and Council Chair forum on Monday was a new beginning in GPSA. The forum was structured, fair and well moderated. Each candidate spoke eloquently outlining their differences in a respectful manner. Rather than candidate attacks and accusations, the GPSA issues were front and center the entire time. The forum began with candidate introductions and immediately turned to the issues at hand. Funding, student fees, transparency and discussions of student unity prevailed as each candidate drew sharp distinctions in management style and ideas to remedy the funding crisis. The forum was almost complete but lacking student attendance. Let me take this opportunity on behalf of GPSA to personally invite all students and their organizations, staff, administration and regents to the next two forums. Please join us at the Domenici Center today starting at 10 a.m. If you are unable to make it today, our final forum will be held Thursday at El Centro de la Raza at 2 p.m. Please come, listen, speak and support your UNM community.

Hypocritical US takes part in terrorism constantly by Andrew Beale Daily Lobo reporter

The United States government is the largest terrorist organization operating today. As if we needed more proof of this fact, underground media site recently posted a video of U.S. troops murdering two Reuter’s photographers. The video, taken through an Apache helicopter’s guncam and termed the “collateral murder” video, shows the pilots mistaking the photographer’s cameras for guns, opening fire on civilians and proceeding to laugh about it. And that’s not even the disgusting part. Toward the end of the video, a van shows up on the street to help one of the Reuter’s photographers. The people who get out of the van are obviously unarmed, and it’s clear their only mission is to help a wounded man. The pilots ask for permission to engage, which is given, and then they open fire on the van, killing the Reuter’s photographer and the men who got out of the van to help. It should be noted that, since they were clearly trying to help an injured man and were clearly unarmed, the men who arrived in the van could be conceived as a medical team. Following the Geneva Conventions, it’s a war crime to kill medical personnel. And that’s still not even the disgusting part. As it turns out, there were two children in the van. The children were wounded by gunfire from the helicopter. In the video, the Army shows up on the ground, discovers the wounded children and announces it’s taking them back to the Army base for medical treatment. Their commanding officer comes over the radio and orders them to leave the children there until the Iraqi police show up to take them to a local hospital. One of the Apache pilots says, “It’s their own fault for bringing kids to a war zone.” First of all, the whole country is a war zone. Secondly, the kids will be OK with Iraqi medical care? What Iraqi medical

care? We bombed all their hospitals. If murdering civilians, reporters and children and then laughing about it doesn’t qualify as terrorism, then what does? Immediately following this horrifying video was Monday’s announcement that NATO troops opened fire on a civilian bus in Afghanistan. Following standard protocol, the bus pulled off to the side of the road to allow a NATO convoy to pass, and the troops opened fire as they passed it, killing four people. In case you slept through history class, the U.S. is a key member of NATO, the North Atlantic Treaty Organization. Meaning we participated in cold-blooded murder of civilians yet again. There have been at least 100,000 documented civilian casualties in Iraq since the beginning of the war. And that’s based on the most conservative estimate I can find. This killing can be traced all the way to the president. Barack Obama ordered the assassination of a U.S. citizen. A New York Times article titled “U.S. approves targeted killing of American cleric,” details the story of Obama’s jihad against Muslim cleric Anwar al-Awlaki. The administration offered a somewhat sketchy portrait of al-Awlaki’s ties to Al Qaeda, and openly admitted that he’s targeted for murder. Assassination, of course, is a war crime. It’s also terrorism. None of this should come as a surprise to anyone that’s familiar with American history. Torture of prisoners, massacres of civilians and support for violent dictatorships are all acts of terrorism, and the U.S. has engaged in these practices throughout all of its history. Even during World War II, perhaps the finest hour of the U.S. military, we performed several high-scale terrorist acts. Most obviously, we dropped nukes on Hiroshima and Nagasaki, both civilian areas. The goal of these bombings was to scare the Japanese military into surrendering, and this goal was successful.

I’ll admit that there’s a strong argument that this was necessary, but the definition of terrorism is the murder of civilians in order to create fear. Clearly, the bombings in Hiroshima and Nagasaki met this definition. Add to this the fire-bombing of Dresden (another civilian area - roughly 25,000 civilians killed in one attack) and numerous reports of rape, torture and massacres by American troops during WWII, and it becomes clear that we engaged in terrorist activity even during the only “justifiable” war in American history. Just to bring it home, consider the case of police-state dictatorship-style terrorism in Albuquerque. During a 2003 protest against the Iraq war, the Albuquerque Police Department attacked the protesters, beating people and launching tear gas into a crowd that included women and infants. There is no evidence that the protest ever became violent. The protesters waited seven years to see a judge. Their case was deliberated for about three weeks before being dismissed. No punitive action whatsoever was taken against the police officers that blatantly violated the First Amendment. Again, this is the very definition of terrorism. The police attacked a peaceful protest with the intention of suppressing the freedom of speech of the people. This attack served the dual purpose of inspiring fear in anyone who might be dumb enough to exercise his or her First Amendment rights in the future. America is not the greatest country in the world. We are not morally superior to anyone. It’s impossible to imagine that we are God’s chosen people, unless your belief system involves God being unrepentantingly evil. America is a terrorist state, perpetually involved in murder, torture and suppression of human rights. If we truly want to fight a “War on Terror,” we should start by examining ourselves.

Palin demands luxury for a speech by Robin Hindery Associated Press

SACRAMENTO, Calif. — Sarah Palin will get first-class airfare for two and three rooms at a luxury hotel when she gives a speech in June for a university foundation. And organizers better not forget to stock her lectern with two water bottles and bendable straws. The details of Palin’s contract with the California State University, Stanislaus Foundation were contained in five pages of the document retrieved from a campus trash bin by students who heard administrators might be shredding documents related to the speech. State Sen. Leland Yee, D-San Francisco, who has been seeking details of Palin’s compensation package for several weeks, provided copies of the paperwork Tuesday. Among other perks, the former Alaska governor will fly first class from Anchorage to California — if she flies commercial. If not, “the private aircraft must be a Lear 60 or larger,” the contract specifies. Palin also must be provided with a suite and two single rooms in a deluxe hotel near the campus in Turlock in the Central Valley. The document, dated March 16, does not include compensation

details for Palin, who commands speaking fees as high as $100,000. Her appearance at the university’s 50th anniversary gala is expected to draw a large crowd, with tickets selling for $500 each. The students said they acted on a tip that documents were being shredded last Friday, when campus staff members were supposed to be on furlough. “I was informed that there was suspicious activity taking place at the administration building, which I found very alarming,” said 23-year-old Ashli Briggs, a junior at the school. Briggs contacted senior Alicia Lewis, 26, who went with several other students to investigate. The building was locked and gated, but the students were able to retrieve piles of paperwork, including the contract document, from a nearby trash bin, Lewis said. The contract pages, dated March 16, have Washington Speakers Bureau printed at the top and a contract number. The speakers bureau did not immediately respond to a request for comment. Yee called the incident “a dark day for the CSU.” “This is our little Watergate in the state of California,” he said Tuesday at a news conference where he was joined by Briggs and Lewis.

The university did not immediately respond to a request for comment from the Associated Press. The foundation uses the university media relations office to respond to inquiries. The CSU Stanislaus Foundation previously denied the AP’s request to release details of Palin’s contract under the California Public Records Act. Last week, the university responded to a similar public records request by Yee by saying it did not have any documents related to Palin’s appearance and had referred the matter to foundation board president Matt Swanson. The next day, Swanson sent letters to both Yee and the AP stating that Palin’s contract includes a strict nondisclosure clause. University foundations and other auxiliary organizations were not subject to the same public records requirements as the university itself, he said. Yee disputed the claim, pointing to significant overlap between the university and its foundation arm. For example, he noted, all but one member of the foundation staff and several officers from its board are university employees, and the foundation headquarters is located in the administration building where the students said the document shredding was taking place.

Daniel Hulsbos / Daily Lobo UNM Police Department officer Chris Carabajal checks a nook near Theater X in the Center for the Performing Arts. Carabajal said he monitors this area after finding a homeless man in a previous occasion.

Step 3

The muscle behind campus safety by Chris Quintana Daily Lobo

The gun seems to be made of plastic rather than steel. “You hope you never need it,” Chris Carabajal, UNMPD officer, said while checking that the laser sights were activated. “But you need to be under the impression that you might.” He then closes the truck and starts his shift. His day starts at 3 p.m., when the traffic and pedestrians are still out, and ends at 11 p.m. when the homeless and drunks start passing out. By the end of the shift he says he’s exhausted. He said its hard working when the sun’s up and then seeing it go down. However, he doesn’t show any signs of physical exhaustion at the end of his shift. This day, he said, was pretty slow. It starts simply enough. He patrols the winding and twisted streets around UNM, guiding the car in between passing vehicles with something akin to a sixth sense, always in the right lane for the turns he needs to take and seldom missing green lights. This grace through traffic might be thanks to the cars around him hanging back, but he doesn’t seem to notice. Instead, he goes through the route, eyes peeled for anything that might happen as he drives by the South Golf Course, the UNM Business Center, the building for Disaster Medicine and Greek row. “You always ‘What if’ everything,” he said while parking the car outside Centennial Library. Then he begins his foot patrol. He said he likes to be on foot better because it helps to deter crime in ways being inside the cop car can’t. By seeing him, people are less likely to break the law. As he walks, passersbys on campus cast him a wary eye. It doesn’t seem to matter that they aren’t doing anything. Everyone seems to be unnerved by his presence. “I feel like the city’s a little bit more saturated with the criminal element, but here you’re trying to protect and help the citizens rather than just going out looking for bad guys,” he said. “You really feel like this is a place where you can mold young minds and help younger

people out. It’s just one of those places where, the people you deal with all the time, you really want to do your best to help them out.” Back in the car, he drives around for a while longer, waiting and watching for anything that might happen. The radio crackles and spews out some numbers and other information that no one but a cop would understand. Carabajal responds in a similar manner and flips a U-turn. He switches the lights on, and the slow meandering careful eye that he had before is gone as he guides his car through the lanes of traffic. He explains that a fellow cop is bringing in a wanted woman and needs some backup. Upon arriving, the fellow cop is talking to a middle-aged woman. Her car is parked in the lot near the Times Square Deli Mart across from UNM with two children in the backseat. The other officer explains that either she gets arrested or that she needs to go downtown to pay her bonds. Carabajal keeps an eye on the woman and children. He notices the ignition hanging out of its socket. He knocks on the front window; the child in the front seat, a boy around the age of 12, doesn’t respond at first. Carabajal persists and the boy rolls down his window. Carabajal asks if the car’s been broken into recently. Maybe he needs help. The kid shakes his head and doesn’t say a whole lot more. Eventually, the mother is guided to the fellow officer’s car. She’s off to pay her fines, but can’t take along her children, seeing as she’s in handcuffs. She tells them to wait for their aunt. Carabajal offers to give the kids a ride and the woman’s face lights up. She tells her children the cop’s going to help them out, but they refuse, and walk inside the deli and wait there instead. “You try to contact everybody with respect and you try to contact them all the same,” he said. “It’s part of the job.” After that incident the rest of the night’s quiet. Carabajal listens to sports radio and occasionally talks about police protocol. During conversation, he mentions that everyone on the force does something special. Some can catch DWI offenders best, others bust drug dealers better. He said he works with the

Courtesy of Basement Films “The Chambered Nautilus” is a 4-minute film directed by Vanessa Woods. Her film will show on Friday at UNM’s Southwest Film Center starting at 6 p.m. as part of the Experiments in Cinema film festival. The festival starts today and continues thru Sunday.

Festival shows ‘undependent’ films by Hunter Riley Daily Lobo

What is the difference between independent and undependent filmmaking? Experiments in Cinema 5.1 might give you a better idea. It’s a film festival in its fifth year, put on by Cinematic Arts professor Bryan Konefsky, and his class Experimental Film and Video. Eli Wentzel-Fisher is taking the class and helping out with the

film festival. “Bryan talks a lot about independent cinema, and he feels that what we’re doing is one step removed from that which he called ‘undependent cinema,’” WentzelFisher said. “For instance, there is no funding. They’re doing all their own work, they probably did everything from shooting to editing. The crews are very small.” Wentzel-Fisher has studied at UNM since 2003 and said each year the festival grows. “Our first festival took place over maybe two nights,” he said. “And then it grew into three nights. This year we’re at six nights. Our first night was on Saturday which was an exhibition of high school and middle school student works.” The festival will show 50 films from 13 countries. Half of the films were made by women, WentzelFisher said. “There are films ranging in length from 1/24th of a second to 30 minutes long,” he said. “It’s a single frame by a Mexican filmmaker, and it’s sort of a joke when you think about it in terms of film

theory because the idea is that you never see a single or autonomous frame.” There was no submission fee for the artists. “It’s sort of a special festival because most festivals, specifically in this country charge a submission fee of anywhere from 10 to several hundred dollars to submit a film to a festival,” he said. “The film then goes through judication and may or may not be screened … We also offer some sort of cash stipend to the filmmakers that we’ve chosen. It’s not a lot of money, but we do give them something to show our appreciation.” The festival runs today through Thursday at different locations around town including the Guild and the National Hispanic Cultural Center. They’re holding workshops throughout the week and some directors will speak before the screenings.

Helen Keller documents on display for first time by Ula Ilnytzky Associated Press

Sponsored by Project for New Mexico Graduates of Color • Office of Graduate Studies • Student Fee Review Board Title V • Office of Student Affairs • Office for Equity and Inclusion • Office of the Provost

“Cat, cat, cold, cold, doll, doll” were Helen Keller’s first handwritten words, and they represent an important moment in the remarkable life of a woman who helped bring about meaningful change for the disabled by writing incessantly to state Legislatures, Congress and presidents. Written on a single page in neat handwriting, the words are the first document to greet visitors at a new exhibition, “Helen Keller: A Daring Adventure,” opening May 7 at the midtown Manhattan headquarters of the American Foundation for the Blind. Elsewhere in the exhibit, a photograph shows a blind salesman operating a newsstand with an accompanying letter from Keller to President Franklin D. Roosevelt that says, “Work is the only way for the blind to forget the dark, and the obstacles in their path.” The foundation is letting the

public see some of its vast Helen Keller holdings as part of a fundraising effort to digitize the archival collection totaling 80,000 letters, photographs, books and artifacts bequeathed by Keller, who worked for the foundation for 44 years. Keller, whose childhood is depicted in the play and film “The Miracle Worker,” lost her hearing and vision at 19 months. She wrote her first words when she was 7 years old, just 15 weeks after her beloved teacher, Anne Sullivan, arrived at the Keller household in 1887. Her enormous progress is demonstrated in another letter just two years later in which she writes, “I study about the earth and the animals, and I like arithmetic exceedingly. I learn many new words too. Exceedingly is one that I learned yesterday.” The two documents are among 61 of Keller’s personal items on display, 31 of which have never

Bookstore highlights poets’ words by Candace Hsu Daily Lobo

One part love of poetry, one part local authors and one part UNM Bookstore. That’s how students can celebrate National Poetry Month. The Bookstore is hosting its third annual “Wednesdays at Noon Poetry Series.” Lisa Walden, the general book manager and events coordinator at the UNM Bookstore, put it together. “I have always done the local outreach for the Bookstore,” Walden said. “There will be four poets total for this month, one every Wednesday. The first year we did it, we had a lot of poets contact us. So now we’ve learned to cut it down.” She said the series started last Wednesday with David Wilde. The readings are open to the public in the general book section of the bookstore. “The English department has been really supportive of the series,” Walden said. “They recommend it to a lot of their students. Also, the poets are also eager to get people to listen to their poetry, so they bring in their own network of people. Poetry is self-reflecting. For college students, being in a learning environment, I think they become a lot more self-reflective. It is a good time to process what is going on, and that is what poets do. I think that is why we’ve gotten such good responses from the students.” Most of the poets read works that have not been published yet, Walden said. Today, Rebecca Aronson is the featured poet. The Albuquerque resident is a contributing editor to The Laurel Review.

“Aronson came to me last year to read a book that she had coedited. We were unfortunately booked, so I told her about our series in April,” Walden said. “Most of the poets we bring in contact me to read. The poets are often students or faculty members. We try to offer a variety of poetry.” Aronson’s first book Creature, Creature won the Main-Traveled Roads Press poetry contest. She has also won the Prairie Schooner Strauss Award and the Loft Literary Center’s Speakeasy Poetry Award. “My poetry is about a lot of different things,” Aronson said. “I think there are a handful of repeating themes throughout my work. I am a micro-observer of the natural world, so there is a lot of attention to physical place. Also, there are contemplations about relationships that people have.” Aronson is also an English teacher at UNM. She said she writes poems that the general audience can relate to. “My poems are about experiences that people have had. They are familiar to people,” she said. “Even if I may say it differently, the subject matter is that of regular life. Poetry is something that I feel compelled to do. When I’m writing, although it may be a struggle at times, it’s kind of like I am away from the rest of my life. It is great to be able to interact with other people, whether they are poets or not.” The series were put together to celebrate National Poetry Month. There is no theme tying all the poets together except the love of poetry, Walden said. “Poetry itself is very powerful. It has nationally shown its impact,” Walden said. “With the

University Bookstore, a great writing program, the staff and students, I think it (is) a good place to have poets show their work.” Walden said the poets appreciate the opportunity to share their poems with an audience. It is also a unique opportunity for the audience because most of the readings have yet to be published, Aronson said. “It is unfortunate that it is just a month to celebrate poetry,” she said. “It is important and worth celebrating for several reasons. There are a lot of different people who write poetry. There is a huge world of poetry out there in terms of interesting things that people can do with language. Anyone interested in music, storytelling or likes the sounds of words can connect with poetry.” There will be two more poets after Rebecca Aronson, including V.B. Price and Ken Stewart, Walden said. “It is exciting to draw attention from what people consider a dying art form. You don’t see a lot of people making a living as a poet. Most of our poets do something else along with writing poetry,” she said. “National Poetry Month allows for different venues, including this one, to put on poetry readings. Every poet has an audience that they can finally come out and read to.”

“Desperate Housewives” actor Kyle MacLachlan, who plays Orson Hodge on the series, urged lawmakers Tuesday to increase arts funding, saying he got his start performing in community theaters that received federal grants. MacLachlan joined hundreds of arts advocates on Capitol Hill to press Congress for increased funding for the National Endowment for the Arts, even as federal deficits could trigger budget cuts. State, local and private support for the arts declined by about $1 billion last year because of the weak economy, according to the group Americans for the Arts. Some museums and arts groups have shut down permanently. “You are our champions here in the halls of Congress, and for many of us you hold our livelihoods in your hands,” MacLachlan told a House subcommittee. The actor found a friend in Virginia Rep. Jim Moran, who recently became chairman of the panel. “I feel I already know you,” Moran said. “My wife and I try to get home early enough on Sunday nights to

Actor Jeff Daniels, currently starring in Broadway’s “God of Carnage” and whose screen credits include “Terms of Endearment” and “Dumb and Dumber,” said the arts were critical to the economic revival of his hometown Chelsea, Mich. After he started the Purple Rose Theatre there in 1991, the town of two stoplights now draws 40,000 people a year to its Main Street with shows, new shops and restaurants, he said. “Even the local funeral director thanked me for two funerals he picked up from people who happened to be in town to see a play,” he said. “I didn’t ask.” Others said the impact of the arts goes beyond entertainment and ticket sales, though. Retired Army Brig. Gen. Nolen Bivens testified that arts education and cultural diplomacy can boost national security by preventing conflicts or inspiring new thinking on the battlefield. Asymmetrical warfare in Afghanistan, Iraq and elsewhere requires creative and innovative thinking, he said. “Direct combat can only do so much,” Bivens said. “The military must employ new practices to address non-state actors, terrorists and irregular warfare techniques.”

uninsured motorcycle, but the biggest adventure of the night comes when he encounters a “down and out,” or severely inebriated female in an alley behind greek row. After calling the paramedics, who determine she’s not too drunk, Carabajal and another officer determine she needs to go to “MATS,” a place for drunk people to sober up before the night’s over. She says, “Thank you,” when he offers her the ride. Driving there, she’s quiet in the back, occasionally muttering

something undecipherable. At the clinic, she exits the car quickly, happy to be back, it seems. As she enters the building and the worker there takes care of her, she looks back at Carabajal and asks, “Hey, where are you going? Aren’t you coming, too?” He just smiles and says no. She tells him how handsome he is, but she’s already in the building by that point. He gets back in the car and heads toward UNM again to finish up his shift patrolling the streets.

visually impaired people to run newsstands. Helen Selsdon, the foundation’s archivist, hopes visitors will come to understand the breadth of Keller’s accomplishments. “She transcended her time. She was unflinching to her commitments to her ideals ... her activism,” she said. The press clippings, photographs, letters and artifacts in the exhibit demonstrate Keller’s huge influence. Keller knew great minds and leaders, from W.E.B. Du Bois to Albert Einstein to Dwight Eisenhower and could work with anyone, Selsdon said “She did more than anyone hopes to do with all our senses. She flew around the world in the 1940s and ‘50s when she was in

her 60s and 70s,” Selsdon said. Keller wrote to Roosevelt asking his support for the foundation’s Talking Book Program. After he signed an executive order establishing the National Library Service for the Blind in 1935 that appropriated funds for the program, she thanked him, calling it “the most constructive aid to the blind since the invention of Braille.” She was born to a prominent Alabama family, and Alexander Graham Bell and Mark Twain were great admirers of hers. It was Twain who coined the phrase “miracle worker” in describing Sullivan’s remarkable work with Keller. Visitors will learn that Keller was not only an advocate for the disabled, but also a suffragette, socialist and an early member of the American Civil Liberties Union.

worth living.’ Most of the time you’re trying to reach out to that person because they are obviously reaching out to you in a sense.” Through the night a couple of other calls come up. A janitor sets off an alarm that Carabajal has to check. A sweating man nearly walks in front of the car, and Carabajal tracks him down to make sure he’s not going to hurt himself from being too drunk. He sits on back up again for an officer who’s talking to a group of students with an unregistered and

watch ‘Desperate Housewives.’” MacLachlan said his break into film and TV, including his Golden Globe Award-winning work on the series “Twin Peaks,” came after mentors from theaters in Yakima, Wash., and elsewhere recommended his work. Many of them still depend on NEA grants to mount productions, he said. Advocates are seeking $180 million in federal support for the NEA for 2011, hoping to surpass a high of $176 million in funding granted the NEA in the mid-1990s before its budget was slashed. Philadelphia Mayor Michael Nutter said the arts have been a good investment for his city even in tough times to draw residents and create jobs. The lobbying group Americans for the Arts awarded House Speaker Nancy Pelosi its Congressional Arts Leadership Award along with the U.S. Conference of Mayors for preserving $50 million in economic stimulus funding for the arts last year and for working to increase the annual arts budget. “We could show this was a jobs creator,” Pelosi said, adding a pitch for the recent health care overhaul, saying it’s difficult to be a self-employed artist without insurance.

before been in a public exhibition. She joined the American Foundation for the Blind in 1924, three years after it was founded. “This is an extraordinary event by our organization to provide this kind of public access,” said Carl R. Augusto, the foundation’s president. Keller became “a prolific writer, a peacemaker, a passionate advocate, not just for blind and disabled people, but for equal rights,” Augusto said. Keller was constantly pushing for more and better programs, products and technologies for the disabled. Many services for the disabled today are due to her efforts, such as talking books, a uniform Braille system, increased Social Security payments for the blind and legislation that allowed
