ScottCohen receives degree

Lasting Legacies

Psychology department grants posthumous B.S. by Luke Holmen holmen@unm.edu

The ceremony kicked off Nizhoni Days, the weeklong celebration of indigenous culture hosted by the Kiva Club and other American Indian student groups. See page 6 for full story.

Roybal recollects teamwork, legislation by Svetlana Ozden sozden@unm.edu

Jaymie Roybal As her term comes to an end, ASUNM President Jaymie Roybal said she is proud of ASUNM’s accomplishments this year and hopes that the administration continues to listen to the student body. She said she aimed to keep tuition low and improve student health facilities because student wellness, she said, should be a priority at UNM. The Daily Lobo sat down with Roybal to reflect on her achievements as ASUNM president and learn more about her plans for the future.

Daily Lobo volume 116

issue 145

Daily Lobo: One of your primary goals was to keep tuition low. Tuition increased by 3.75 percent this year compared to 5.5 percent last year. While tuition increased, it didn’t by as much as in previous years. How much of an effect do you think your actions and the actions of students had in keeping it low? Jaymie Roybal: One of the things I’m most proud of is that I was able to work well with GPSA President Katie Richardson. ASUNM and GPSA have different priorities but we worked together to keep tuition and fee increases low. It’s something that hasn’t been done in the past. ASUNM and GPSA having a united voice had a big impact on keeping the tuition increase low. Any tuition increase is unfortunate for students but 3.75 percent is less than the 5.5 percent increase from last year and students will see that, although it is more money, it means more services for students. Part of library costs will be covered by the tuition increase and next year there will be new professors, graduate assistantships and teaching assistantships. DL: Despite aims to keep student fees low, SFRB recommended a $16.71 increase over last year and the administration is likely to add an additional $50 fee for Athletics. Why did student fees increase so

much this year? JR: SFRB stands behind the $16.71 recommendations. The increase will offer more services for students. It will fund a recreational center and includes extended hours at Johnson Center and a 24-hour library. But I strongly disagree with the $50 fee for Athletics. ASUNM fought against that and I am very unhappy that the regents support it. ASUNM has been very vocal about our dissatisfaction with the additional funding for Athletics. DL: What would you have done differently? JR: I would have liked to create more opportunities for administrators to engage with students because the administration rarely comes in contact with the student body aside from working with ASUNM, GPSA, SFRB and other organizations. It’s unfortunate because as much as student leaders can represent the student body, the administration doesn’t interact with the rest of the student body, and it could have more of an impact if the administration was more involved. I think it’s necessary that they hear the students’ voices as well. DL: What do you plan to do in the future? JR: I graduate in December and I hope to go to graduate school, law school and get my MBA. I

don’t intend to continue a position within ASUNM but I accepted an internship at Northwestern Mutual Financial Network that will start this summer. DL: One of your key goals at the state Legislature this year was the repeal of the tuition credit, which is a tax on higher education that students pay to the government. How did your actions and the actions of ASUNM ensure that got taken off the books? JR: It’s been a lengthy process and a big part of it was educating state Legislature because they weren’t really aware that the tuition credit existed. We explained that the tuition credit balanced the budget of the state and they took it to heart. DL: The bike share program, which would allow students to rent bicycles from electronic pay kiosks on campus, will be funded $50,000 from student fees through the SFRB, conditional on the rest of the $250,000 in funding being raised by ASUNM. Where are you on the fundraising process and will we see that program implemented next year? JR: I hope to see it implemented next year and we’re waiting for the final quote from the company we’re working with that will

Deceased UNM student Wolfgang Scott-Cohen was awarded a posthumous Bachelor of Science in Psychology by the department. During the Faculty Senate meeting Tuesday, faculty voted to award the degree to Scott-Cohen for his efforts during the three and a half years he spent studying at UNM. In February, Scott-Cohen was in a coma for 11 days after a vehicle collision and died on Feb. 21. Chriselle Martinez, advisement coordinator at the Department of Psychology, said Scott-Cohen was well-liked among his classmates. “He was very outspoken and a lot of classmates were really fond of him,” she said. In a letter addressed to the psychology department, Jane Smith, the department’s chair, said Scott-Cohen was well-known in the department and served as a research assistant with several faculty members. Psychology major Jason Alexander said Scott-Cohen had hoped graduate either this spring or in the fall. ScottCohen had accumulated 110 credit hours, according to the degree request. Alexander said. Scott-Cohen was well known by classmates for his knowledge, not just in psychology but in a wide range of subjects. “He always contributed in class, and he always knew so much,” he said. “Sometimes I think he would get off topic, but what he had to say was usually pretty interesting, off the wall, and well-informed. It’s really too bad that guy will never go to work in his field. I’m sure he would have come up with something no one else did.”

avicraluckey@gmail.com Patrick Ross said his career is more than sequins, feather boas, skin tight dresses or chicken cutlet chest enhancers — for him it’s theater. His 20-year career as a female impersonator, or drag queen, has allowed him to travel and perform original acts. Ross said although he impersonates women such as Joan Rivers and Barbra Streisand, he has no desire to be an actual woman. “The best part of drag is taking it off,” he said. “There’s different genres of gender bending and some of it is sexual identity and some of it is theater. That’s why I don’t have a

drag name, I’m Patrick Ross always, because I’m an actor.” During his Patrick Ross Comedy Hour, Ross hosts comedians, burlesque dancers and other drag queens. Ross is the emcee of the show and sashays around the stage swimming in various colored feather boas as he introduces the acts. During the introductions he impersonates women with strong personalities and has made a name for himself doing so. “For me there are certain energies that speak to me and certain people that I look like,” he said. “That combination of who can you do and who do you feel, you know, where’s the magic for you

and if you’re one of those.” Ross is a native of Albuquerque who began his career performing in the city’s small bars when he was still a teenager. Because Albuquerque is a relatively small city with few other drag acts, particularly when compared with cities like Los Angeles and New York, Ross said he found success as a performer here. He eventually moved to Las Vegas and was discovered while performing a one-man cabaret show in a small club. The producers of “La Cage Follies,” a show performed at a larger venue, offered Ross a chance to be in their show. From there, Ross said, he went

on to perform and understudy at different casinos in various shows. He now performs regularly in Albuquerque. He said although mainstream audiences often have misconceptions about whether these impersonators really want to be women or change their sex, audiences are still fascinated by shows featuring the performers. Famous drag queens such as RuPaul can draw audiences of thousands. Ross said female impersonators draw the biggest crowds “As an audience member they want to say ‘damn that looks just like that b****,’ and then you wanna go ‘damn that’s a dude.’

That’s the magic,” he said. As a performer, Ross said he enjoys what he said drag does for its audience, that is, transcends barriers and allows people to let their guards down. “It breaks the walls down. If you can’t laugh at a gorgeous woman who’s a man making jokes, making fun of herself and having a party, then what can you laugh about?” he said. “I find it a magical art form and I find it eye opening, tantalizing, strange, wonderful and magical.”

provide us with the bicycles. It’s possible to get the money in place by the time my term is up. DL: Some students opposed expanding Johnson Center or creating a new recreation center, which you supported during your administration. Do you still stand by the claim that students need better exercise facilities, and what cost do you think is reasonable for students to pay to receive them? JR: Students need to have the best services that they can have. I don’t believe that student fees should be increased to pay for the center. With all the new housing on campus and the incoming students, we need somewhere for those students to go to improve student health and wellness on campus. We pay a facility fee for various buildings on campus and that fee should go to pay for the buildings students use, like a wellness center. There are many options that can be explored to find funding for the center. It’s just a matter of

finding the money. DL: You recently attended a summit on behalf of UNM in Washington, D.C. as a member of the National Campus Leadership Council, which is a national group of student body presidents from schools across the country. What was addressed at the summit and how does UNM student leadership compare to leadership at other schools? JR: We exchanged ideas and talked about our successes and failures. We also discussed the issues students have with the Obama administration, tuition, fees, sustainability, student engagement and involvement, campus safety and affordability of education. We had a lot to contribute and a lot of other students were impressed by all that UNM had to share. UNM is on the same level, if not above, other student leaders. We had a lot of ideas to share like Spring Storm and FIESTAS that the other leaders found interesting.

Rampant rudeness irritates, dismays by Alexandra Swanberg aswanny@unm.edu

I walked past the duck pond the other day where I saw a guy push over a table that had just been set up then continue on his way. I picked up the table and scurried to catch up with him, heart racing with irritation. I spun him around as authoritatively as I could and asked him why he knocked down the table. “Oh, because I’m an asshole,” he said, then smirked and walked away. What could I do but agree with him wholeheartedly? It wasn’t the most satisfying confrontation and I couldn’t quell the burning feeling. How people can be so rude I’ll never understand. Even more so, how could anyone acknowledge and be proud of the fact? I’m sure I’m not the only one who deals with rudeness almost every day. There are those who open a door for themselves and let it slam in your face as you trail behind. Others party-hop and get wasted on everyone else’s booze. Roommates leave you two sips of milk for cereal in the morning. A guy who bummed a cigarette from me then tucked it in a pack filled with other cigarettes before he jollily bid me good day and rode off on his bicycle. Regardless of how deeply these pricks dig under one’s skin, it leaves one feeling vengeful, or annoyed at least. So many people go through life unaware or uncaring of how they affect those around them. A friend of mine, a particularly aggressive driver, weaves through traffic in an imagined race toward the freeway. When she changes lanes she waits until she’s already between both lanes before she signals, if she bothers to signal at all. As far as bad manners and inconsideration are concerned, she is not an exception. When did common courtesy become such a rarity, and, better yet, why? Everybody is guilty of offending at least once in a while. We all have bad days, we can’t be perfect. But it seems to me many people don’t consciously consider anyone but themselves or the people who in some way contribute to their well-being. The problem is seemingly minor when you consider isolated instances, but add these up and you’ve got a daily bombardment wearing down your necessary ability to tolerate others. Each instance takes a stab at my patience. As it diminishes, everything becomes aggravating and the world that was so beautiful when I rose out of bed grows loathsome as the day goes on. The offenders reading this might think, “Sounds like a personal problem to me,” only they’re too self-centered to see that everyone affects each other. Anyone with a conscience might be able to imagine a “Six Degrees of Kevin Bacon” scenario with any person they’ve offended and see how their actions come back at them. Just think about how you feel when you’re in a stormy mood. A person laughing too loud could light your fuse. I don’t know anyone who isn’t negatively affected by careless behavior. In such instances, their mood affects their interactions with others who then continue to spread the negativity. I would simply love to live among selfaware and considerate people who balance their needs with others’ and consider treating people the way they would like to be treated. How did people forget this elementary lesson once they became supposedly responsible, mature adults?

Newspapers should strive for open bias by Devon Stevens

Daily Lobo columnist Last week, I noticed a letter in the Lobo criticizing the editor-in-chief of this paper for expressing his opinions. I would like to respond. Not to the letter, but to a general trend I see in criticizing newspapers for expressing opinions. As I do nothing for this paper except express my opinions, I thought I should inform you of my opinion on this. In this country we have this noble, if not foolish, idea that newspapers should strive to be as unbiased as possible, that reporters and editors should not have opinions, and that an unbiased opinion is as close to the truth as it is possible to get. These are all lies. Newspapers have never been unbiased and most other countries have newspapers that are very proud of their biased nature. Being unbiased, that is, not swinging either left or right in politics, is seen as something desirable, and maybe it is, but it is not possible and most papers don’t even try to be unbiased. Everybody, everybody, has an agenda. Sometimes it is as simple as getting laid, other times it is a desire to get you to vote for that person’s preferred politician. Approaching any publication expecting a non-slanted, unbiased view is extremely silly and foolish. Yet, anytime a paper

Being unbiased, that is, not swinging either left or right in politics, is seen as something desirable, and maybe it is, but it is not possible and most papers don’t even try to be unbiased. expresses an opinion somebody complains about it. They act shocked, they gasp, and they say, “The standards of this paper have fallen! You should act more professional!” So, what is professional, I ask? Is it presenting a biased view in such a way as to appear unbiased? Is it to present only the facts that support your view without ever actually articulating your viewpoint? Is it, in other words, dishonest, disingenuous but subtle slanting? I think a newspaper with a clearly expressed viewpoint is far more trustworthy than a paper that doesn’t tell you what

its viewpoint is. At least you know how to approach the information it is giving you. And what about the idea that unbiased opinion is as close to the truth as you can get? I can tell you, for instance, that meatpacking plants in 1906 were terrible places to work, but you can’t grasp the truth about being in a packing plant without some human soul injected into the content. A biased opinion like that found in Upton Sinclair’s novel The Jungle is worth a thousand truths more than facts presented in bullet-point format. Too often I find that what people object to from newspapers is not unprofessionalism but rather the different viewpoint. I look at the comments for the editor’s opinions and I instantly see the word “Leftist.” I know the moment I see it that I’m not going to read anything useful or informative. It is going to be high-pitched nonsense. It tells me nothing about the article I have just read, but it does tell me a lot about the commenter and their “appreciation” of the text. Folks on the left complain about rightwing publications, folks on the right complain about left-wing publications and both sound the same while doing it. Newspapers always have a bias. Always. There is no getting around it. It is far better to admit a bias and continue on than to hide behind a smiling, unbiased face covering a cynical, manipulative motive.

Letter Bigotry on Lobo website has become intolerable Editor, It is time that you people at the Daily Lobo put your foot down to the bigots that infest your comment sections. The other day I was reading an article about the Mock Wall the SJP constructed and what do I read in the comments?

Nothing but Islamophobic and anti-Arab bigotry coming from uneducated morons who have too much free time on their hands. As a paper whose readers mostly consist of intelligent human beings, please do us a favor and shun these bigots from posting their vile views. I understand your commitment to free speech, but there should be no reason your boards should be a platform for that sick kind of people. Abraham Sammy Daily Lobo reader

Alyssa Maunders, junior, music “I think I’d probably fall into the hipster category, indie-hipster. I don’t like being called something.” Maunders combines modern pieces with vintage pieces she finds in her mother’s closet. “Lately I’ve been wearing a lot of my clothes in a different order,” she said. She said she doesn’t think too much about her clothes and just tries to go with it, as long as they don’t leave her too exposed. Favorite trend: “I’ve been seeing a lot of baggy stuff, like baggy shirts and I participate in that. It feels comfortable and makes you feel not tight in your clothes. I like highwaisted stuff with it because then if you wear the high-waisted with something loose you don’t look like a bag.” Least favorite trend: “I’ve been seeing a lot of butt cheeks hanging out of short shorts and I don’t like that. Short shorts are okay but I don’t want to see your butt cheeks.” Advice to fashion defunct friend: “More is better. Put on a lot of clothes and jewelry. I feel like that’s what’s in style now. I see a lot of stuff being piled on: jewelry, shoes, hair pieces, everything. Just go with it. Try not to match.”

Steven Russell, sophomore, nursing “This is all-night studying for pharm 101 on the couch with a nice summer blazer.” Russell said his overall style doesn’t fit into one category because his fashion choices vary from day to day. Favorite trend: “I’ve only seen one person with this trend and it was her hair, kind of like Rihanna. It was side to side (asymmetrical) with silver glittery ends that she dyed. It was like a horse’s mane. I like hair trends.” Least favorite trend: “Girls in tights. I am not a fan. It reminds me of my aunt who was really overweight and that’s all she used to wear.” Advice to a fashion defunct friend: “I don’t believe there is ‘fashion defunct.’ I think people are just going to do what they’re moved to in the moment.”

Organizers of Gathering of Nations place a $17-per-day value on experiencing American Indian culture, but members of the UNM Kiva Club say tradition shouldn’t cost money. Even the performers at the world’s largest American Indian powwow have to pay the admission fee, said Makhpiya Black Elk, Kiva Club president. “We don’t believe you should charge to get into your own event,� he said. “They’re asking the dancers to put numbers on, pay money and then have a contest to see who’s the best and get all that money. It’s really commercialized. It’s really lost that community that was part of it.� On Sunday, the day after Gathering of Nations, the Kiva Club and other American Indian groups will host a free powwow that celebrates American Indian culture. The powwow is part of Nizhoni Days, a weeklong festival put on by the Kiva Club that kicked off last Sunday with a sunrise ceremony on campus. Today, Nizhoni Days organizers host a Miss Indian UNM pageant, in which contestants are judged on traditional performance and storytelling, among other things. They will also host a Native Knowledge Bowl similar to Jeopardy! But Black Elk, a senior majoring in Native American Studies, said putting on events for free comes with a price. He said the group started the school year $1,200 in debt, and members had to raise money to both pay off the club’s debt and put on this year’s events. Black Elk said putting in the time and effort isn’t always easy, but it’s worth it in the end. “Sometimes it’s hard. I stayed up all night and then had to come here at 5 o’clock for a sunrise ceremony,� Black Elk said. “But there’s a sense of responsibility that comes with it, that it’s our duty to do this so I think it’s anger that was transformed into passion.� In the past, the Nizhoni Days powwow attracted up to 5,000 people, said Andrew Nelson, powwow committee chair.

“This is a legacy that I’m very proud to be in.� ~Makhpiya Black Elk Kiva Club president Black Elk said many of the ceremonies are deeply rooted in past traditions. Nizhoni, he said, is a Navajo word for cultural and traditional beauty, as opposed to beauty in the Western sense. “The powwow tradition, the spring ceremonies, they’re all part of that, it just re-emerged through Kiva Club on campus,� he said. “It’s through this tradition that we try to stand out from Gathering of Nations.� This year, members of Kiva Club are also commemorating the club’s 60th anniversary. Founded in 1952, Kiva Club is the oldest Native American student group on campus. “I try to imagine what it was like for the original 25 people that started up Kiva Club in ’52 and try to imagine what was it like to be completely excluded from everything and then to have to plant this seed of what Kiva Club is,� he said. “This is a legacy that I’m very proud to be in.� But Marley Shebala, president of the Kiva Club in the ‘70s, said indigenous people still face the same struggles as they did 30-40 years ago. She said the Kiva Club used to have its own building, but now the group is forced to rent space in the SUB to hold events. “How are student organizations supposed to build and reach out to one another when there’s no place for them, especially in an area that’s their regional homeland?� she said. “It’s disrespectful and the University continues to be that way. I would think that after so many years they would have that understanding.� Black Elk said Kiva Club’s goal for the school year was to promote healthier eating habits in the Native American community. He said the club took a controversial stance against fry bread, because he said the bread was not made until after contact with Europeans.

He said unhealthy eating habits contribute to high rates of diabetes on reservations. “For a lot of people it’s almost a personal attack because fry bread becomes almost an extension of your identity,� he said. “We’re trying to break that because it’s not an indigenous food and so raising awareness to the issue, we’re offending people.� Former Kiva Club member John Redhouse said the Kiva Club will continue to flourish far past its 60th anniversary. “I knew that there would always be a Kiva Club,� he said. “The spirit, the tradition, and just because the student population here is one of the highest in the country, and there’s always a need for an organization like that.�
