NM youths join effort opposing child soldiering by Avicra Luckey
Activists participating in “Cover the Night” will cover their cities with posters like this one tonight in an effort to raise awareness about Joseph Kony, leader of the Lord’s Resistance Army in Uganda. The posters were created by Invisible Children, an organization dedicated to stopping the use of children as soldiers.
Tonight, Albuquerque activists participate in an international effort to stop the use of child soldiers in Africa. People all over the world will plaster their cities with posters to raise awareness about the violence and brutality in Uganda. But Andrea Quijada, executive director of Media Literacy Project in Albuquerque, said it will take more than posters to stop leaders like Joseph Kony, the leader of the Lord’s Resistance Army in Uganda. KONY 2012, a video produced by Invisible Children and filmmaker Jason Russell, calls for the capture and prosecution of Kony, who kidnaps children to serve in an anti-government militia group. The video urges political leaders and celebrities to help raise awareness about the issue. Russell became the subject of controversy when he was arrested in San Diego for allegedly yelling and disrupting traffic while naked, according to the Huffington Post. Critics have also accused Invisible Children of oversimplifying the situation in Uganda. Quijada said the video presents what she calls “the white-savior complex.” “It’s a way for white communities in particular to have a sense that somehow communities of color don’t know how to take care of themselves, haven’t created a sys-
tem by which to be self-sustaining and that they need the help of the white man,” she said. “Often if we look at who created the situations that many communities of color are in, it has been a result of racism, it has been a result of colonization.” The organization also failed to mention in its first video that Kony is no longer in Uganda. He fled to Sudan in 2005 and has not been back to the country since, according to CNN. The organization has also come under fire because only 32 percent of the group’s proceeds are used on the ground in Africa, according to Invisible Children’s financial reports.
“I just sat there and thought ‘I can’t just not do something about this’” ~Taylor Schum high schooler Among the millions who saw the video were two Albuquerque high school students, Taylor Schum, 15, and Madeleine Barr, 17. They said despite controversy surrounding the organization, they still decided to participate in tonight’s event “Cover the Night.” Schum started a Facebook group for the event and soon found many others, including one Barr started.
The two decided to combine their groups and now more than 1,800 people have RSVP-ed to participate in the “Cover the Night” festivities in Albuquerque. Participants will do volunteer projects in their own communities during the day, including a UNM campus cleanup. Those interested in participating can meet the group in front of the SUB at 4 p.m. Schum said she felt she had to do something to stop Joseph Kony after she viewed the video the first time. “It changed my life,” she said. “I just sat there and thought, ‘I can’t just not do something about this.’ I have to try to get people to care. I have to try to get people to watch the video.” CNM student Kaitlin Elizabeth Elias said she is an activist for the cause, and that it’s not about one race “saving” another race, it’s about humans standing up for the rights of one another. “It’s not because I myself am a white blonde girl,” she said. “It is because this is a human issue. Just because I live in a powerful and relatively safe country I believe that I have the human right … to advocate on behalf for the people who don’t have that right, no matter the color of their skin, no matter the color of my skin — it’s a human rights issue.”

Students win contest with water-treatment system by Svetlana Ozden firstname.lastname@example.org
UNM’s Lobo Engineering team designed and built a water-treatment system that prepares murky seawater to be purified for drinking. The shipboard water pretreatment system set the record for the highest score in 22 years at the International Environmental Design Contest, the team said. The contest for solving technical environmental problems is hosted annually by NMSU’s Institute for Energy and the Environment (IEE). Team member Andrew Gomez said the team competed against 15 universities at NMSU on April 4 and won first place and a prize of $2,500, which the team will split evenly among the members. Teams in the competition chose one task from a list of six, and Gomez said his team chose the Green Reverse Osmosis Pretreatment task. “The judges were really impressed by our design because it was something that could actually be used to pretreat water on a ship,” he said. Gomez said the team’s design uses a filtration membrane to remove harmful particles from seawater. He said when the water exits the filtration system, it is free of particles and is ready for further processing, which is important because without pretreatment, reverse-osmosis membranes can become quickly spoiled. Gomez said the judges focused on originality, ease of use, reliability, affordability, innovation, cost and functionality. He said the team had to design and build a system that would last at least four months and could filter 30,000 gallons of water per day without using hazardous chemicals. “We really focused on meeting all of the criteria

ap crime briefs APD shoots man; tally rises to four for 2012
‘Breaking Bad’ actor loves ABQ, not crime
Police say a dispute over drugs ended with an officer shooting an armed man in southeast Albuquerque. The man was undergoing surgery Thursday at UNM Hospital. Police didn’t release his name but said he has an extensive criminal record. Police Chief Ray Schultz says witnesses reported that the man was in the neighborhood Wednesday looking to settle a drug debt. He allegedly fired his rifle multiple times before leaving. The man returned Thursday, and police say he was shot three times when he pointed his rifle at officers. This marks the fourth officerinvolved shooting this year. Albuquerque officers have been involved in 24 shootings, with 17 fatalities, since January 2010. Some activists are calling for a federal investigation. Last year, the department instituted a number of reforms aimed at giving officers better training and increasing hiring requirements.
An actor who plays a highrolling drug dealer on the Emmy Award-winning AMC drama “Breaking Bad” is griping about crime in Albuquerque, where the show is filmed. Aaron Paul tweeted this week that he was burglarized twice while shooting the hit series about a teacher and former student, played by Paul, who become partners in crime. He says his car and now his house were hit. An April 1 police report obtained by KOAT-TV shows Paul reported a laptop, sunglasses and digital voice recorder stolen. He later tweeted that he loves “Albuquerque and the people. Just felt violated and super sad to lose personal items from my home.” They were later removed, but on Wednesday he tweeted to the station that he loves Albuquerque but hates the crime.
Las Vegas councilor arrested for fraud SANTA FE, N.M. — A former Las Vegas, N.M., city councilor and his business partner are
facing securities fraud charges for bilking an investor out of $50,000 over a closed oxygen bar and spa in Albuquerque. State officials announced Thursday that 44-year-old Frank Berged IV, of Albuquerque, and 45-year-old Brenda Duggan, of Corrales, N.M., have both been charged with fraudulent sale of securities, conspiracy, fraud, sale of unregistered securities and sale of securities without a license. According to state authorities, both approached the potential investor, now serving as a Christian missionary in Zimbabwe, in August 2007 and promised a 10 percent interest in a spa company. Officials say both knew that the spa was in serious financial trouble and had closed its doors. It was unclear if either had attorneys.
Cops: man sold home without telling owner LAS CRUCES, N.M. — A Las Cruces man accused of selling his ex-wife’s home without her permission has been arrested. The Las Cruces Sun-News reports that 37-year-old Reuben James Armijo faces forgery, perjury and fraud charges.
Police say Armijo pocketed about $45,000 from selling his ex-wife’s home after paying off a mortgage loan on the property that he bought in 2009. His wife was awarded the home in their divorce settlement. Armijo is accused of asking his cousin in Colorado to notarize a forged quit-claim deed in 2009 to which Armijo allegedly later testified to its authenticity in court. Police say Armijo’s former wife denied signing the deed and said she was out of the state when the document was notarized.
State cites center for mishandling waste
GALLUP, N.M. — Gallup Indian Medical Center is facing a $36,000 fine from the state Environmental Department for improperly handling infectious waste. An order and citation obtained by the Gallup Independent says the hospital sent infectious medical waste to a transfer station that does not accept it, and failed to label or bag it correctly. The Environmental Department began investigating after a landfill manager notified the agency that workers had found a bag of hazardous medical waste
in a trash shipment from the hospital. More waste was found on subsequent inspections. Hospital spokeswoman Genevieve Notah says the hospital has taken action to address the problems. The hospital can appeal the fine once it is finalized.
Guardsman pleads guilty in sex case A former National Guard recruiter in Lubbock, Texas, has pleaded guilty in a teen sex sting case set up by police in New Mexico. Jeffrey Neal Jackson pleaded guilty to a coercion and enticement of a minor charge in a plea agreement with federal prosecutors. The 44-year-old agreed to a 10-year prison sentence, lifetime supervised release and sex offender registration. Federal prosecutors say Jackson began an online relationship with someone he thought was a 15-yearold girl but who turned out to be a detective in the Curry County, N.M, Sheriff’s Office. He traveled to Clovis, N.M., expecting to have sex with the teenager but was arrested after arriving at a decoy house carrying a box of condoms. Jackson has been in custody since his arrest last October.

we had to, while making a product that people could actually buy,” he said. “That was our greatest struggle and our greatest achievement because we did exactly that.” Team member Stephen Clark said the team entered the competition as a senior capstone design project and received funding from the Department of Chemical and Nuclear Engineering. He said the team only built a bench-scale model to present at the competition and to prove its functionality. “It cost about $2,500 to build the bench-scale model,” he said.
“It would cost about $40,000 to build a full-scale model and it would be marketed at $51,000.” Gomez said their system costs considerably less than traditional seawater filtration systems. Clark said the product is highly marketable because of its low operation cost and sustainability. He said a full-scale model could last about 24 years, well over the four-month lifespan requirement of the competition, because the system has four filtration membranes that can be rotated and reused. “The full-scale system would

pay itself off in 2.7 years,” he said. “And it would save companies $168,000 in operating costs alone.” At the team’s reception Wednesday, the members demonstrated the filtration process. The mixture started a blue-green color and by the end turned clear. Team member Zachariah Harris said the group had an exact recipe to simulate seawater at the reception. He said the recipe included dechlorinated water, salt, blue-green algae powder and fertilizer.

Michigan museum catalogs racist artifacts by Mike Householder The Associated Press
BIG RAPIDS, Mich. — The objects displayed in Michigan’s newest museum range from the ordinary, such as simple ashtrays and fishing lures, to the grotesque — a full-size replica of a lynching tree. But all are united by a common theme: They are steeped in racism so intense that it makes visitors cringe. That’s the idea behind the Jim Crow Museum of Racist Memorabilia, which says it has amassed the nation’s largest public collection of artifacts spanning the segregation era, from Reconstruction until the civil rights movement, and beyond. The museum in a gleaming new exhibit hall at Ferris State University “is all about teaching, not a shrine to racism,” said David Pilgrim, the founder and curator who started building the collection as a teenager. Pilgrim, who is black, makes no apologies for the provocative exhibits. The goal of the $1.3 million gallery, he explained, is “to get people to think deeply.” The displays are startling. The nword is prevalent throughout, and many items portray black men as lazy, violent or inarticulate. Black women

Romney family stance on women inconsistent Editor, Mitt Romney’s wife, Ann, recently claimed that it was appropriate and good for her to not enter the workforce because she devoted her time and energy to raising her children. And, more recently, Mitt Romney, in a speech, said “Poor women who stay at home to raise their children should be given federal assistance for child care so that they can enter the job market and have the dignity of work.” Am I the only one who finds those two statements confusing, and possibly contradictory? Robert Gardiner Daily Lobo reader
Be more careful with headlines, Daily Lobo Editor, I have to really wonder about the Daily Lobo sometimes … actually, too many times. Typos and some punctuation errors I can understand, poor grammar I can sort of understand, but the copy editor that came up with the 4/18/12 headline for “Projects widening Lead and Coal end” takes the cake. Whoever wrote that headline obviously doesn’t take the time to actually read and understand the article beforehand. This is inexcusable, especially on the front page. At least try for a semblance of professionalism … the two streets in question actually lost a lane in each direction … how could this, by any interpretation, be considered widening? The project hasn’t ended yet — which the headline clearly implies. James Richards Daily Lobo reader Editor’s Note: The headline refers to the total width of Lead and Coal, both of which received wider bike lanes. The Daily Lobo apologizes for the confusion.

Editor should stop expressing his opinions Editor’s Note: This letter is directed at Daily Lobo Editor-in-chief Chris Quintana. Editor, I do not particularly like politics, because I feel it is a man-made system to control man. I do vote because I like expressing my ideas, much like an artist with an empty canvas. I feel, although you write on politics of this campus, you too have become a disguised politician, controlling articles that accuse, rather than report. Not only have your opinions affected the articles of the Daily Lobo, but also the writers themselves. I see more accusation than facts, more one-viewed opinions than reports and more doubt than hope. Everyone who keeps up with the Daily Lobo knows that there is an underlying feud with you and Jamie (sic) Roybal. You have expressed these opinions in articles, cartoons and editorials. To me, that is a problem. Not because of anything to do with being in favor or against anyone, but because you are abusing your power to control students’ thoughts. A newspaper should not be biased, in my opinion. It should be like art, in that
Many deserve credit for Mock Wall Project Editor, We would like to respond to the article written by Avicra Luckey entitled “ProPalestine group erects ‘Israeli Apartheid Wall.’” First off, although Students for Justice in Palestine brought the campaign to campus, we were by no means the only group involved in the Mock Wall Project. Traditionally, the MWP represents the U.S./Mexico border on one side and the Palestine/Israel border on the other, but SJP decided to open up an invitation to other social justice groups on campus. This coordination was designed both to give these groups a platform to bring
Letters we who read the newspaper should form our own opinion about the issues going on in our community. That is how ideas are formed. That is creativity and that is progress. With last Friday’s front-page article, I could tell by the picture and headline, it was more accusing Roybal than reporting on the amendment itself or student voting. You’ve expressed such doubts about Roybal’s presidency from the veto to the bike program. I understand the money issue about the bike program. I am neither pro nor con with the bike program, but I like to look at different sides of an issue. I have found your opinions logical. But when you weren’t editor-in-chief, there were articles about environmental issues and alternative transportation. Bikes fit both these categories. I believe Albuquerque is a great city, with its southwestern style, art, food and amazing people. I think the bike program would allow UNM students who do not have a bike to see the beauty of Albuquerque. Much like the bussticker program, this bike program would benefit students and Albuquerque. Some students do not have a bike and don’t know the feeling of New Mexico air blowing in their face, nor the feeling of flying when it is near sunset. Students will be able to venture and explore Albuquerque more. Have you considered these situa-
tions that would be enjoyable for any UNM student? Also, I don’t need to know who’s dating who. To use Jamie (sic) Roybal’s relationship against her was immature. Do not try to scar her career with her relationship and do not try to make people think that her relationship with Láz Cárdenas was a bad thing. Do not be like certain people in this world who look poorly on someone who has feelings for someone else. I think rather than accuse and blame, the Daily Lobo needs to focus more on students and what they are doing to improve their community. Your leadership shows every time in the Daily Lobo with words that people read. Let it be words that do not bring this University down. Remember what Albus Dumbledore said in last year’s Harry Potter film, “Words are, in my not-so-humble opinion, our most inexhaustible source of magic. Capable of both inflicting injury, and remedying it.” I feel if you were to take that same passion you have against Jamie (sic) Roybal and apply it to the subjects I have said above, the Daily Lobo would become a successful newspaper. It would better improve the student body and would better connect us as UNM students.
awareness to their causes and to network and strengthen the social justice community on campus. SJP wanted to clarify this because we feel it is important to give due credit to the 19 other groups involved. The wall would not have been possible without the planning and construction by the Association of Architects for Design & Urbanism, and the coalition is extremely grateful for their work. Additionally, it was a completely cooperative effort among Raza Graduate Student Association, Movimiento Estudiantil Chicano de Aztlán, Free Alvaro Now, Amnesty International, (un)Occupy Albuquerque, SCRAP Productions, Food Not Bombs, A.N.S.W.E.R. Coalition, Out Queer Grads, Kiva Club, Queer Straight Alliance, Fair Trade Initiative, African Leadership Opportunity Team, GetEQUAL NM, Students Organizing Actions for Peace, Muslim Student Association, One
Million Bones and the Student Dharma Association. Secondly, we would like to clarify the misquotation of Danya Mustafa and make it clear that the West Bank and Gaza are separate occupied territories, the apartheid wall surrounds them both and the wall encroaches into the West Bank. Finally, it is important to note that it is called the Mock Wall, not the Israeli Apartheid Wall. The name represents all borders, both physical and social, that people face on a daily basis.

Protester stripping in airport: nude but not lewd by Steven DuBois
The Associated Press
Don’t worry... it kinda looks like you’re taking notes.
PORTLAND, Ore. — A hightech worker who stripped naked at Portland International Airport as a protest against airport security screeners said Wednesday he was being “nude but not lewd,” and characterized his act of defiance as protected political speech. John E. Brennan, 49, of Portland was charged with disorderly conduct and indecent exposure after taking off far more than this belt and shoes during the screening process before a Tuesday evening flight to San Jose, Calif. The incident report from the Port of Portland, which operates the airport, said some passengers covered their eyes and the eyes of their children. Others laughed and took photos. The disorderly conduct charge was dropped at Brennan’s arraignment Wednesday. Brennan said in an interview that he did not arrive at the airport with the intention of getting naked. He said the Transportation Security Administration crosses the line between privacy and security. He decided to protest after he was pulled aside after going through the metal detector and a pat-down, he said.
Port police officers arrested Brennan after he ignored requests to get dressed. “The most effective way to tell them I’m not carrying a bomb is take off my clothes,” Brennan said. Authorities led Brennan from the screening area with a towel around his waist. Brennan was transferred to a downtown Portland jail and released late Tuesday. Brennan has criticized TSA previously, saying on Twitter last May that airport security violated his privacy during a pat-down in San Jose. The tweet came after intense criticism in 2010 over the government’s use of full-body scanning machines and invasive pat-downs in airport security. Annie Linstrom, a spokeswoman for the Port of Portland, said two screening lanes closed temporarily during the incident, but there were no flight delays. This was not the first time Brennan has undressed for political reasons. In Portland, the World Naked Bike Ride attracts thousands each year to protest oil dependence. Brennan said he has ridden in the event three times. Brennan booked a flight to San Jose for Wednesday night, and had no plans to protest.

JERUSALEM — Israelis flocked to the Yad Vashem Holocaust memorial Thursday to read the names of loved ones who perished at the hands of the Nazis during World War II, a rite that has become a centerpiece of the country’s annual commemoration for the 6 million Jews killed in the genocide. The ceremony, known as “Every Person Has a Name,” tries to go beyond the huge numbers to personalize the stories of individuals, families and communities destroyed during the war. Zvi Shefet, an 87-year-old survivor, carried a list of 48 names, including those of his parents, his lone sister, his grandparents, uncles, aunts and cousins. Having fled to the countryside, he remained not only the lone survivor of his family but also one of the few Jews to escape from the village of Slonim — then part of Poland, today in Belarus — where Nazi troops massacred nearly 30,000 Jews and dumped their bodies into open pits. “These people have no grave, no tombstone. Their names are written nowhere,” said Shefet, who later migrated to Israel and now has three children and eight grandchildren. “When I go to Yad Vashem, it is like I am going to the cemetery, to remember my family but also my community — all those who died and have no one left behind to even remember them or commemorate them.” Israel came to a standstill Thursday morning to honor the
victims when sirens wailed for two-minutes across the country. Pedestrians stood in place, buses stopped on busy streets and cars pulled over on major highways — their drivers standing on the roads with their heads bowed. In homes and businesses, people stopped what they were doing to pay homage to the victims of the Nazi genocide, in which a third of world Jewry was annihilated. A wreath-laying ceremony at Yad Vashem followed, with Israeli leaders and Holocaust survivors in attendance. Other ceremonies, prayers and musical performances took place in schools, community centers and army bases. The annual remembrance is one of the most solemn on Israel’s calendar. Restaurants, cafes and places of entertainment shut down, and radio and TV programming were dedicated almost exclusively to documentaries about the Holocaust, interviews with survivors and somber music. The Israeli flag flew at half staff. A public reading of names also took place at Israel’s parliament, where Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and other leaders recited names of relatives who were killed. At the opening state ceremony Wednesday night at Yad Vashem, Israeli leaders linked the Nazi genocide to Iran’s suspected drive to acquire nuclear arms and urged the world to stop it. “Those who dismiss the Iranian threat as a whim or an exaggeration haven’t learned a thing from the Holocaust,”
said Netanyahu, who has been criticized by some in Israel for making the connection. Iranian leaders have repeatedly made references to the destruction of Israel. Iran denies its objective is to build nuclear bombs. Many in Israel believe that even if it does, a comparison to Nazi death camps, gas “showers” and crematoria is unwarranted. “The question is whether additional speeches laden with pathos and cliches, and whether the airing of hollow threats will serve the shared goal of disarming Iran of nuclear weapons?” wrote columnist Ben Caspit in the Israeli Maariv daily, asking, “Isn’t it a bit excessive to compare Tehran’s threats of war to the Nazi extermination machine, the theories about racial superiority, the creation of a murder machine that was unprecedented in the history of humankind that not only exterminated 6 million Jews but dragged the entire world into the flames?” The link drawn between the Holocaust and Iran shows how more than six decades later, the mass murder of Jews during World War II is still a central part of Israel’s psyche. The nation was created just three years after the end of the war, and hundreds of thousands of survivors made their way to Israel. One of those was Shefet, who joined the Polish resistance movement, met his future wife, then sailed with her to Israel. Today, they are among fewer than 200,000 elderly survivors in Israel.
are shown as kerchief-wearing mammies, sexually charged Jezebels or other stereotypes. The shocking images exact an emotional cost. “There’s parts in that room — the main room — where it’s quite gutwrenching,” said Nancy Mettlach, a student-conduct specialist at Ferris. “And the thought that was going through my mind was: ‘How can one human being do this to another human being?’” Pilgrim, a former sociology professor at Ferris State, started the collection in the 1970s in Alabama. Along the way, he “spent more time in antique and flea markets than the people who work there.” His quest for more examples was boundless. “At some point, the collecting becomes the thing,” he said. “It became the way I relaxed.” He spent most of his free time and money on acquisitions. In 1996, Pilgrim donated his 2,000piece collection to the school after concluding that it “needed a real home.” The collection spent the next 15 years housed in a single room and could be seen only by appointment. Thanks to the financial support of the university and donors — notably from the charitable arm of Detroit utility DTE Energy — Pilgrim’s collection now has a permanent home, which will have a grand opening ceremony April 26. Admission is free. Today, the school has 9,000 pieces that depict African-Americans in stereotypical ways and, in some cases, glorify violence against them. Not all of the museum’s holdings are on display, but the 3,500-squarefoot space in the lower level of the university library is packed with items that demonstrate how racist ideas and anti-black images dominated American culture for decades. Visitors can forget about touring the exhibits and retiring untroubled to a cafe or gift shop. Some leave angry or offended. Most feel a kind of “reflective sadness,” Pilgrim said. But that’s not enough. If the museum “stayed at that, then we failed,” he said. “The only real value of the muse-
um has ever been to really engage people in a dialogue.” So Pilgrim designed the tour to give visitors a last stop in a “room of dialogue,” where they’re encouraged to discuss what they’ve seen and how the objects might be used to promote tolerance and social justice. Some of the objects in the museum are a century old. Others were made as recently as this year. Ferris State sophomore Nehemiah Israel was particularly troubled by a series of items about President Barack Obama. One T-shirt on display reads: “Any White Guy 2012.” Another shirt that says “Obama ‘08” is accompanied by a cartoon monkey holding a banana. A mouse pad shows robe-wearing Ku Klux Klan members chasing an Obama caricature above the words, “Run Obama Run.” “I was like, ‘Wow. People still think this. This is crazy,’” Israel said. One of the first rooms in the museum features a full-size replica of a tree with a lynching noose hanging from it. Several feet away, a television screen shows a video of racist images through the years. The location of the museum — in the shadow of university founder Woodbridge Ferris’ statue — also catches some by surprise. The mostly white college town of Big Rapids is 150 miles from Detroit, the state’s largest predominantly black city. Ferris, who later served as Michigan governor and as a U.S. senator, founded the school more than a century ago. He once said Americans should work to provide an “education for all children, all men and all women.” Pilgrim, who is also Ferris State’s vice president for diversity and inclusion, initially considered giving his collection to a historically black college, but he wanted to be “near it enough to make sure it was taken care of.” Most of the objects “are anti-black caricatures, everyday objects or they are segregationist memorabilia,” he said. Because they represent a cruel, inflammatory past, they “should either be in a garbage can or a museum.”

New starters to play Eagles by Nathan Farmer
firstname.lastname@example.org The baseball team is finally back home. After playing 13 of its last 15 games on the road, UNM takes on Florida Gulf Coast this weekend in a three-game homestand. The Lobos are first in the MWC and beat Texas Tech twice during the week to take their record to 19-18, their first winning record of the season. Sophomore first baseman DJ Peterson said the team is eager to play in front of their home fans. “We are all excited to be home and have the home field advantage, for once,” Peterson said. The Lobos will be missing six players because of injury, so three freshmen will be starting during the three games. “These games this weekend will be used to continue to try and get more people playing and more people executing the game correctly,” he said. UNM is on a 15-9 run, including wins over ranked Gonzaga and Arizona State. After starting out just 2-9. Peterson said the team is finally coming together. “We are starting to come along. We are all buying in and all getting
hot,” he said. “I think our lineup is really coming up clutch and getting us key hits. We have six guys out for injury and the guys filling in are doing a great job.”
“We are trying to build a baseball program that can compete with anyone in the country, with New Mexico kids,” ~Ray Birmingham head coach For the first time in UNM history, all the starting pitchers are from New Mexico. The pitching staff has an ERA under 5 and head coach Ray Birmingham said that’s the first time that has happened since the ‘70s. Gera Sanchez, from Las Cruces, is tied for first on the team with four wins and is holding opponents to just .181 hitting. Birmingham said players like
Sanchez lead the team’s winning streak. “We are trying to build a baseball program that can compete with anyone in the country, with New Mexico kids,” he said. Florida Gulf Coast comes into the game with a 15-22 record and dropped its last series to Jacksonville last weekend. The Eagles are led by Brandon Bednar, who is batting .281 with 16 RBIs and one home run. Florida Gulf Coast doesn’t have a single player over .300 batting. UNM has five. Leading those hitters is Peterson, who is second in the nation for hitting with a .452 batting average. He is also sixth in the country in hits with 66, and has 43 RBIs and 10 home runs. “I’m just taking advantage,” Peterson said. “I’m just getting base hits when I need to and doing whatever I can to help out the team.”

Pierce leads Celtics to 102-98 win over Magic by Howard Ulman The Associated Press
BOSTON — Need a big basket? Give the ball to Paul Pierce. Sharp passes and solid foul shooting? He provides that, too. Pierce did all that for the Boston Celtics on Wednesday, expanding his role on an injury-depleted lineup and lifting them to a 102-98 win over the Orlando Magic that clinched the Atlantic Division title. It came one night after he scored 43 points. “I wanted to just be aggressive, looking to score, and when they collapse I just wanted to make the easy pass,” said Pierce, who had 29 points and a career-high 14 assists with Rajon Rondo sidelined with a sore lower back. “I just wanted to make the right
plays when the ball’s in my hand down the stretch.” He did that with 7.6 seconds left with a 16-footer from the right elbow. He sank it even though he slipped, giving the Celtics a 100-96 lead as the 24-second clock was about to expire. “This is unscripted,” Pierce said. “I’m not thinking. ‘Woo, I slipped let me go take the shot.’ It’s just something that happens. You play off instincts.” For the second straight night he drove hard to the basket, repeatedly drawing fouls. He sank 17-of-18 free throws in a 118-110 loss to the New York Knicks on Tuesday night then made 11 of 12 against the Magic. “That’s huge for our team,” Boston coach Doc Rivers said. “It allows us to set our defense and it’s something that we really haven’t done well this year.” Boston (37-26) has a 3-1-2-game
lead over New York (33-29). Both can end the regular season tied at 37-29, but the Celtics would finish first with a better conference record, the second tiebreaker behind headto-head matchups. After the game, Rivers said he told his players, “We were two games under .500 at the All-Star break and the fact that you did it and did it this early I think is very impressive.” Division winners are guaranteed to be seeded no worse than fourth in the conference and wouldn’t have to face Chicago or Miami in the first round. Avery Bradley started for Rondo and finished with 23 points. Brandon Bass added 21. Glen Davis, starting in place of Dwight Howard, led Orlando with 27 points. Jameer Nelson had 19 points and nine assists.
“There’s been multiple games where we’ve been down and we just went away,” Davis said. “I like how we fought today but, at the end of the day, we need to win the game.” Howard missed his sixth consecutive game because of a herniated disc and the Magic missed his defense as the Celtics hit 54.3 percent of their shots. “Our effort was great. We just can’t guard anybody,” Orlando coach Stan Van Gundy said. “Our 3-point shooting again was horrendous. We had the one possession to tie in (the last) two minutes and we missed two open ones.” The Magic cut a 91-78 lead to 91-90 on a layup by Nelson with 3:04 left. But they came no closer as Pierce and Ryan Anderson traded one free throw each. Pierce hit a short jumper in the lane, Bass caught Pierce’s shot that missed the rim and put in an easy layup and Kevin Garnett made a free throw for a 98-92 lead with 1:31 remaining. But Orlando, sixth in the Eastern Conference at 36-26, fought back on baskets by J.J. Redick and Davis, making it 98-96 with 31 seconds to play. Pierce then hit his 16-footer. After a basket by Nelson, Pierce sealed the victory with two free throws.
“Paul is not flashy,” Rivers said. “I don’t even know how Paul scores sometimes. He doesn’t look like he’s that quick but he is. He’s got a gift. He’s a professional scorer.” The Celtics played without their starting backcourt. Point guard Rondo, who has at least 10 assists in each of his last 23 games, had a sore lower back after landing hard on it Tuesday night. Pierce also fell hard in the game, hurting his elbow but said he knew Wednesday morning he would play. Ray Allen missed his sixth straight game with a right ankle injury. Pierce tied his career high with his 13th assist with 4:37 still left in the third quarter. He got his 14th with 9.5 seconds left in the period, feeding Bass for a jumper from the left corner. Trailing 67-59, Orlando scored the next nine points to take its first lead since 6-5. It stayed on top 70-69 before the Celtics finished the third quarter with a 10-0 run that gave them a 79-70 lead. Bass scored six points and Pierce had four in that comeback. The Celtics led 33-22 after one quarter, starting the game with nine baskets on their first 11 shots. But the Magic cut that to 55-51 at halftime with the help of their 3-point baskets — three by Nelson and one by J.J. Redick.

The softball team has a serious chip on its shoulder heading into MWC action. The Lobos were picked to finish fourth out of five teams in the preseason poll, but sophomore second baseman Chelsea Anaya said the team thrives on a come-from-behind, never-say-die mentality. “We’ve been the underdogs all year,” she said. “No one has taken us seriously and a lot of teams have overlooked us. We’re ready to surprise some people and show the Mountain West Conference what we’ve got.” UNM opens its conference schedule against league-leading San Diego State in a three-game series this weekend at Lobo Field. The first game in that series is tonight at 6 p.m. Last year, the Aztecs swept the Lobos by scores of 8-0, 6-3 and 2-1.
“We’ve been the underdogs all year. No one has taken us seriously and a lot of teams have overlooked us.” ~Chelsea Anaya second baseman UNM is a completely different team than last season. At 24-13 on the year, the Lobos have been in and out of the top-25 polls this year — the only ranked Mountain West school. “Going into conference, we have to leave behind all of our wins and losses,” junior pitcher Kaela DeBroeck said. “We start over at 0-0. It’s a brand new season for us. We just have to go out there and prove ourselves all over again.” With wins over top-25 teams

San Diego State Tonight, 6 p.m. lobo field
Oregon and Texas A&M this season, and having gone toe-to-toe with national powerhouses such as Texas Tech, University of Arizona and University of Texas, UNM challenged itself with its nonconference scheduling. Head coach Erika Beach said the fierce competition her team has faced this year was all in preparation for conference. “Right now is do-or-die time for us,” she said. “We know that we’re going to have to go out and compete each and every game if we want to win conference. There are no easy games. Every game is going to be a fight.” This weekend’s three-game series against SDSU will showcase the Lobos’ hard-hitting offense against the Aztecs’ hard-throwing pitching. UNM leads the country in home runs per game. The Lobos have slammed 66 dingers this year, led by junior shortstop Stefanie Carramusa’s 16, senior catcher Jessica Garcia’s 15 and senior right fielder Shenise Cox’s 12. The Lobo offense also tops the conference in nearly every offensive statistical category, including hits, runs, RBIs and batting average. UNM’s bats will need to stay redhot against the arms of the Aztecs’ Rebecca Arbino and Bailey Micetich, who boast MW-leading 2.2 and 2.21 earned-run averages, respectively. “We’ll need to put together a complete game,” Anaya said. “We’ll need our pitching, our offense, our defense — everything — to come together if we want to come away with three wins.” A Mountain West title — and an automatic postseason bid to the NCAA tournament — hangs in the balance. “I’m confident of the work we’ve done so far this season,” Beach said. “I think our strength of schedule and our wins will help us secure an at-large bid to the NCAA tournament. But I’d much rather just win conference and keep the guessing work out of it.”
