Wildfires advance into NM by Luke Holmen holmen@unm.edu

Ash and smoke from wildfires in the east continues to cloud the horizon and turn Albuquerque’s normally blue sky a dull gray. Arizona wildfires spread to western New Mexico June 11, as more than 700 square miles of brush and forest continued to burn largely uncontained in eastern Arizona. Fire officials believe an unattended campfire may have sparked the Wallow fire, the largest burning in the area. The fire has consumed thousands of acres and is expected to cost more than $10 million in fire damage and containment fees. The New Mexico Department of Health issued a warning to residents on Saturday to avoid the outdoors, using swamp coolers and exercising during periods when smoke is visible. “The people we’re most concerned about are obviously those with chronic health conditions, but when air quality gets this bad it can actually have negative effects on everybody,” said Chris Minnick, a spokesman for the New Mexico Department of Health. “Just because you can’t see the fire doesn’t mean there isn’t an effect from the smoke blowing into the state.” The Air Quality Index in Albuquerque reflected pollution

was nearly 10 times its normal level during evening hours several days last week, according to the National Weather Service. Gov. Susana Martinez announced June 7 that the Department of Homeland Security has ordered the State Emergency Operations Center to activate to a level three operations status due to the effects of the ongoing wildfires.

“We are working hard to ensure the safety of all New Mexicans as the wildfire approaches our western border.” ~Susanna Martinez, Governor Fire crews from Albuquerque, Rio Rancho, Farmington, Bernalillo County, Mora County and San Juan County have been deployed to Arizona to assist with firefighting efforts. Wildland Fire Strike Teams from Montana and Idaho are also assisting, according to Martinez. Over 4,000 firefighters are currently battling the Wallow fire, which spread due to dry conditions and strong winds. As of Saturday the fire was only 5 percent contained. Nearly 10,000 people have been evacuated

from mountain cities in Arizona. “We are working hard to ensure the safety of all New Mexicans as the wildfire approaches our western border,” Martinez said. “It is important for our residents to heed the warnings of local and state officials as we handle the issue of persistent smoke in the air and prepare for the possibility of the fire moving into New Mexico.” Albuquerque resident Maria Glenn said the fire was a serious health concern. “I have asthma, high blood pressure and had a heart attack last year, and I’m 68. I have to be very careful when I use my air conditioner and have hardly been outside this last week.” Glenn said the fire has affected many of the elderly in her retirement community. She said she is on steroids and has emergency adrenaline on hand, and she has to wear a mask when she goes out. Student Dylan Wilson said the pollution has made it difficult to complete an astronomy project he was working on. “I’m not sure if it is affecting research at the department, but I know visibility has been very low lately,” he said. “I was working with a short range telescope at my house and couldn’t even figure out where I was looking. I had to try several nights in a row before I could actually see the set of stars I was trying to look at.”

‘Juárez and El Paso is one community’ by Andrew Beale abeale@unm.edu

Nearly 60 people marched Friday from El Paso, across the bridge, and into one of the most dangerous cities in the world to join a several-hundred-strong protest against violence in Ciudad Juárez. Over 3,000 people were killed in Juárez last year, which means it has one of the highest murder rates of any city across the globe, according to CNN. The killings and drug violence in Mexico sparked the protest, said David McKenney, a member of a University of El Paso (UTEP) student group, Miners Without Borders, who helped organize the march into Juárez. “Everyone’s appalled by the violence in Mexico, and finally some of the students at UTEP said ‘we’re sick of this, we gotta do something,’ and started to organize,” he said. “And we did at UTEP and then we met a lot of other community organizers and connected with them.” McKenney said he travels to Juárez several times a month to take part in protests and deliver supplies to people affected by the violence. He said he wasn’t nervous about marching into the city

because he expected a lot of people to show up for the march. “The more people there are, the safer it will be, is how I feel,” he said. About 600 Mexican citizens attended the protest, some traveling from as far away as Mexico City. They marched to the Benito Juárez Monument, where protest leaders signed a peace accord which read, in part, “We promote solidarity and the just claim to rights for a better life for all.” Mexican citizen Pepe Ortiz traveled from Guanajuato, a city in central Mexico, dressed as Mexican revolutionary hero Miguel Hidalgo y Costilla to attend the protest. He said the costume was meant to inspire people to struggle for their rights. “I want the children to see in my costume the image of the person that broke the chains of slavery and wanted to bring peace and prosperity to Mexico,” he said in Spanish. The protestors were marching to demand an end to violence and a higher standard of living in Mexico, Ortiz said. “(They’re marching for) prosperity and a better life,” he said. “To take out, as best they can, this cancer — take out the army, be-

Mexico is large and strong but, unfortunately, the people that are at the top, well, they don’t understand the people.” Juárez resident David Flores said the march from El Paso worked as a powerful symbol of cross-border solidarity. “We need to show that Juárez and El Paso is one community. At the border, it’s almost like living

in both cities at the same time,” he said. Flores said he doesn’t expect either the Mexican or the American government to change their policies as a result of the march. “They’ve been ignoring this peace movement. We want nonviolent solutions to this problem. It’s been created by the war on drugs,” he said. “This is the point that it’s got to change.”

McKenney said he’s been to several marches in Juárez and always felt safe despite the high incidence of violence in the city. “A student at the University in Juárez had been shot by a Federal police officer,” he said. “But I went to a march a couple weeks later, and it was safe.

Stolen parking passes found with ex-employee

Voltig since he is no longer employed at UNM, according to the report.

Peter Voltig, a former UNM Parking Attendant, admitted to stealing two booklets of parking passes from the University on May 7, according to a police report. Voltig’s former manager, Michael Haggerty, called UNMPD on May 11 when he found the booklets were missing. When questioned, Voltig said he intended to sell the passes and keep the money for himself. Each booklet contained 250 $5 passes. The University decided not to press charges against

The report said Biggs began yelling at a female staff member when Randy Garcia, another staff member, tried to restrain him. Garcia said in the report Biggs also tried to smash the windows.

Dwight Flores, a co-worker, came to help deal with Biggs. They weren’t able to restrain him, so UNMPD was called. Both Garcia and Flores were bitten and promptly received care at the UNMH Emergency Room.

Car theft victim had car stolen, found once before Larraine Sedillo reported June 2 her car had been stolen from UNMH’s west parking structure. When she returned to the structure after working a night shift at UNMH, her car was gone,

she said according to a police report. Sedillo called UNMH Security and went with them to search for her car, thinking she may have parked in another spot. The car still wasn’t found. UNMPD was notified. Sedillo said her car had been stolen before. On February 9, she called UNMPD to report her car missing, the report said. UNMH Security had a video of a man in a car that looked like Sedillo’s driving out of the lot. Sedillo said she did not recognize the man, and her car was found in the OMI parking lot and taken into police custody, according to the report.

NCAA praises UNM athletes’ brains by Hunter Riley hriley@unm.edu

Student-athletes typically attract attention for outstanding athletics, but with the release of the NCAA’s 2009-2010 Academic Progress Rate report, all of the attention is on academics. According the report, UNM scored the highest it has scored in eight years: 973 out of 1,000. Nine UNM teams, including the Men’s Cross Country team, received a perfect score of 1000. Joe Franklin, head coach for track and field and cross country, said he sees his job as a way to prepare students for life after college. “Our philosophy is make sure the students are prepared for life when they are 40,” he said. “In our sport it is rare that they make any money, we have an expectation that they go to class, do their work and that they are respectful to their professors. We have seen that trend over the last five or so years that the kids are very driven academically.” The scores are based on two factors: eligibility (if the student goes to class and completes assignments on time) and retention, said Henry Villegas, UNM Manager of Academic Advisement. “For each student-athlete, we get two points each term and we

get another point for their retention,” he said. “All those points are added up for each team, so a perfect score of 1000 would mean that every student-athlete on that team was eligible and retained.” UNM track and field athelete, sophomore Janna Mitsos, said an athlete’s drive to succeed academically can come from the same place that fuels a desire to win an event. “I think (academic success and athletic success) go hand in hand, and they both are a lot of hard work, and if you can succeed at one you can succeed at the other,” she said. Villegas said the NCAA can also impose penalties on teams that do not meet the minimum acceptable score of 925. He said this is the first year that UNM has received no penalties despite the baseball team’s 912 score. Five years ago UNM had five teams that scored below a 925, and the NCAA required UNM to develop a plan to help those teams do better academically, Villegas said. “We put together a team and looked at all aspects of the program,” he said. “We looked at every single student-athlete that we had lost a point for. We looked at the reason that they weren’t eligible or they left, and based on those issues, we developed a plan.” Some of those changes includ-

Francisco AvitiaFuentes said he returned to his car in the early evening and found his car window smashed.However, nothing was missing. There was no other damage or signs that the car might have been forcibly entered. AvitiaFuentes called UNMPD, but there were no witnesses to the attempted break-in and there are no suspects, the report said.

er. It’s just amazing to see how organized they are. They’ve got these great peace tactics, non-violent protest tactics they use. It’s really cool to watch.” McKenney did have guns pointed at him once in Juárez, he said — by the police, who mistook him for a threat while he was on his way to deliver clothing to a poor neighborhood of the city. “I ended up going the wrong way on Mariscol street, and there was some Federal Police coming the other way. It probably freaked them out, they probably thought I was trying to block them. So they all jumped out and pulled their guns on me. They asked if I had ‘armas, armas,’ and I said ‘ropa, ropa,’ (clothing) and they let me go,” he said. “I’ve never had a problem otherwise.” The violence in Juárez is caused by a small percentage of the population, and protest can show the world that most citizens are good people who only want to survive, McKenney said. “I always loved Juárez and going over, ever since I was a little boy,” he said. “Something about it can’t be recreated anywhere else. I’ve always loved it over there. Ninety-five, 99 percent of the people over there are peace-loving, good people.” The Daily Lobo is now accepting applications for Copy Editors.

Alumnus nominated for Emmy by Alexandra Swanberg aswanny@unm.edu

UNM alumnus Mark Kachelmeier was nominated for an award in the 2011 Heartland Emmy Competition for his “Catching Predators” series. His weeklong series aired on KRDO News Channel 13 in Colorado Springs and profiled five convicted sex offenders. Thanks to viewer tips generated by the show, two of the five were brought into custody. The Daily Lobo talked to Kachelmeier about the show and his Emmy nomination. Daily Lobo: Tell me about the program, “Catching Predators.” Mark Kachelmeier: Basically, it was a week-long series where there were five sex offenders who were convicted and were supposed to be living in the Colorado Springs area. They were on the run from the law because they did not register. So we went to their last known addresses and found out where they were living. They weren’t where they were supposed to be, so we went around and talked to police like, ‘Where are these guys sup-

posed to be? What are they wanted for?’ Every day, we featured one of the sex offenders, and after the first time it aired, somebody called up and gave us a tip. So we captured one of the sex offenders who was living in an apartment with a single mom and had a kid, and she didn’t even know he was a sex offender. It’s scary stuff. Another sex offender was caught a couple months later, and he was living in Buffalo. The rest of them are still on the run from the law. DL: Whose idea was this? MK: This was the idea of an investigative reporter, James Jarman. He was under a contract and couldn’t be on air, so until his contract was up at the other station, he was behind the scenes. That’s why he was the writer/producer, that’s why he had another reporter front this thing. DL: What part did you play in the whole thing? MK: I’m the person who shot it. I’m a photojournalist, so I’m the person who shot most of the video. Basically, I’m the person who’s responsible for shooting all the vid-

eo, editing it, and also shooting all the live shots. So my name’s on the Emmy — if we win, that is — for photojournalist/editor. DL: Can you tell me about your experience doing this piece? Did you enjoy the project? MK: It was an interesting project; I really liked the final piece. Some parts were kind of scary in a way because we had to go through some rough neighborhoods looking for these people, and if you’re working in television news, walking up to some door with the camera rolling, you knock on the door and you never know what to expect. Someone could come out with a gun, your life could be in danger, so it was a great experience, but it was also kind of scary. DL: Why do you think it was nominated? Out of all the submissions, what do you think sets this one apart? MK: First of all, it was put together really well. I think it was kind of original, and I just think it was quality work. In fact, because of our story two sex offenders were caught. I think that plays a big role in it.

Tuna live in fear no longer By Don Melvin

The Associated Press ABOARD THE STEVE IRWIN: The helicopter lifted gingerly off the aft deck of the ship, banked sharply, then sped off a few hundred feet above the Mediterranean whitecaps in search of boats fishing illegally for bluefin tuna — potential targets for activists determined to do what they can to preserve the species. The helicopter returned nearly two hours later, however, with no new targets to report — having scouted, among other things, an EU fisheries inspection vessel, a pleasure craft with picnickers, and a vast empty sea near the border between Libya and Egypt. But the chopper — an MD550E, a civilian version of a helicopter designed for scouting missions in Vietnam — is evidence of the increasing sophistication of the Sea Shepherd Conservation Society. These are not wild-eyed radicals putting to sea in any old rustbucket. The group’s current campaign, which it calls Blue Rage 2011, uses two ships and a number of small launches, sophisticated radar and communications equipment — and the helicopter, flown by former commercial pilot Chris Aultman. The aim is to try to prevent illegal fishing for bluefin tuna. The stock of the fish has dwindled to the point that experts fear its collapse. If the group finds boats it feels it can prove are fishing illegally, it wants to send divers in to cut the nets and free the tuna. But the group’s methods are controversial. The conservation group Oceana shares Sea Shepherd’s assessment of the imminent danger to the bluefin tuna, but is more circumspect in its comments on Sea Shepherd’s tactics. “Although Oceana doesn’t have the same practices, we don’t oppose those practices,” said Maria Jose Cornax, an official with Oceana. “They are contributing to the same goals we are.” But Japanese officials have called Sea Shepherd members terrorists who have endangered lives with their pursuit of the Japanese whaling fleet, in which collisions occurred at sea. And, although privately European Union officials welcome the research of this and other non-governmental groups — and credit them with helping awaken public opinion — EU spokes-

man Oliver Drewes questioned Sea Shepherd’s desire to enforce the law itself. “They are not policemen,” Drewes said. “No third party has policing obligations or powers. Every 12-year-old kid knows that.” Brigitte Scheffer, a spokeswoman for Sea Shepherd, said the organization has never claimed police powers. “What we are enforcing, if we have any legal standing here, is the U.N. Charter, where we believe each individual has the right to defend nature and in our case marine wildlife,” Scheffer said. But no one can question the group’s increasing sophistication. And part of that is due to the aviation program built up painstakingly over the past few years by Aultman. The helicopter he flies off the back of the Steve Irwin, Sea Shepherd’s mother ship in this campaign, is worth about $850,000 — probably $1.4 million if it were new. Scheffer said all the organization’s money comes from donations, large and small. Sea Shepherd has tax-exempt status as a charity in the U.S. Aultman, a 41-year-old Georgia native who lives in Santa Monica, became friends with a member of Sea Shepherd’s board six years ago. They began diving together. And late in 2005, Aultman said, Sea Shepherd founder Paul Watson “told me to find a helicopter and buy it.” It’s fast and powerful — a pilot’s helicopter, he said — and it skips above the waves at 80 or 90 knots (90-105 miles per hour). Sunday, the first target, which had been spotted on the Steve Irwin’s radar, was a vessel that was towing two rings that looked like tuna cages — but there were no nets dangling from the rings. It struck Aultman as peculiar, but if there were no nets, clearly there were no fish. The second vessel was clearly marked “EU Fishery Inspection” — not illegal fishermen but the police. The third was a trawler, probably bottom-fishing, clearly for something other than tuna. Feeling that the area was covered by inspectors, and it was more likely to find uninspected boats elsewhere, the chopper headed east toward the Libya-Egypt border, just north of the NATO-enforced no-fly zone. But other than a pleasure craft with picnickers munching happily on the top deck, there was little but

empty sea stretching out to the horizons. The whitecaps looked for an instant like boats but then dissolved and disappeared. To return to the mother ship without running out of fuel, Aultman turned the chopper around. He had no luck today, but Aultman feels fortunate to have left commercial flying behind and gone full-time with Sea Shepherd. “I love it,” he said. “It’s become my life.”

LETTER

Comments ‘unintelligible,’ discourage participation Editor, Dialogue in the comments section of the Daily Lobo website is extremely off-putting. Polarized and uninformed viewpoints abound, but that’s not the only problem. Some comments are obviously trolls trying a crude hand at sarcasm or some other form of humor. Some posts are so unintelligible that it’s impossible to determine the writer’s intention, or whether the comment should be interpreted as literal or satirical. I’m not criticizing humor. I just think it should be intelligent on a news website. I’ve heard some talk about how the staff should censor posts, but I think the Daily Lobo does the right thing by not inhibiting free speech. Rather, the student body should participate more online. The Daily Lobo is not perfect, but it does a good job of providing interesting articles and commentary about UNM events and politics. There are a lot of articles that have the potential to spawn intriguing discussions but generally don’t because of the low quality of participation. I don’t enjoy posting much because it feels like stooping down to a lower form of dialogue, and I suspect many others feel the same. Nevertheless, it would be great if the website was a place for interesting and prolific conversation. I don’t know how to do it. I’m just saying. Sam Waggoner UNM Student

By now, we can all pretty much agree this whole police force thing isn’t really working out. Nobody trusts the police. They shoot at anything that moves. They’re rude and sarcastic. They don’t understand how to talk to people, and are generally unfit to handle the power bestowed upon them. They cause trouble wherever they go. They set people up to rip them up, and they’re not there when you need them, but show up when you commit the littlest benign infraction and make a big fucking deal about it. They’re the type of people who had no real friends in high school because they

were too racist and stupid to be taken seriously, or they where bullies because they couldn’t relate to the world around them in any constructive way. The ones who joined the force to make a difference are few and far between and probably go on to get more esteemed jobs where their sense of compassion is more appreciated among their co-workers. Isn’t it time we replace these cops with a cooler, slicker task force of super-people with emotional intelligence, an understanding of people, the ability to inspire reverence and devotion, and the ability to take control of any situation without resorting to immediate fatal violence? You know, like an articulate ninja-shaman-best-friend-good-samaritan-zenmaster-quick-as-a-fox-break-dancingsoul-master-genius-employee-of-themonth-gender-bending-man-of-the-hour everyday superhero. In black. Take, for instance, your garden-variety out-of-control disturbing-the-old-lady-

next-door house party. A member of the Super Force would show up, knock politely on the door and explain, plainly and calmly, that your octogenarian neighbor is trying to get a good night’s sleep so that she can walk her cats in the a.m. So, “Hey, dudes, just try to maybe not vomit loudly in her azaleas and we can all just get along.” And because Super Force members are, like, really fucking cool, you’ll be excited he/she is there, and you’ll invite him/her to stay, and he/she totally will, telling a series of really rad stories about the time he/ she went to Thailand and briefly married a Turkish goat from Illinois. Contrast that with APD, which would blast open your living room wall with a dynamite-strapped squirrel grenade, shoot you in the knee on general principle, skin your girlfriend, wear her flesh as a kimono for Winter Ball and whistle “Good Day, Sunshine.” Terrible, I know.

LETTER Burundian Americans article contained many factual errors Editor, I was pleased to read your recent coverage of the one-year anniversary of the Association of Burundian Americans in New Mexico. Although I commend your coverage of this organization, I was disappointed to find multiple factual errors in the June 6, 2011, report, “African refugees adapt to NM.” First, the article makes mention of the limited financial support available to refugees. However, the article fails to contextualize that discussion within the federal refugee resettlement system and the laws and policies that define the aid available to refugees. Financial assistance to refugees is provided through federal funds from the Department of State and the Office of Refugee Resettlement. The brief timelines for assistance are entirely the result of federal policy. I fear that your article made it appear that local resettlement agencies were responsible for the economic plight of refugees when in reality refugees are resettled into poverty as a

direct result of [these policies]. In short, the poverty we see in our own community among refugees resettled to Albuquerque is the direct result of federal policy that operates under unrealistic timelines and rarely leads to positive outcomes anywhere nationwide. Second, the article states that refugees must repay a loan for the cost of travel to Catholic Charities. This statement is totally and utterly false. All refugees take out a loan from the International Organization for Migration (IOM), which is an intergovernmental organization that assists in the overseas processing phase of refugee resettlement and is widely subsidized by governments, including the United States government. National resettlement agencies assist in the collection of these loans. However, local affiliates such as Catholic Charities play no role in the collection of travel loans and do not benefit directly or indirectly from the proceeds of the loans. Third, the article states that Catholic Charities provides financial support to the Association of Burundian Americans in New Mexico. This is also incorrect.

Catholic Charities assists and encourages the association in several ways. However, it provides no direct financial support. As the Director of the Center of Refugee Settlement and Support, I serve on the advisory board of the association and am actively engaged in assisting the association in obtaining grant funds so that it may be fully self-sufficient. What alarms me most about the statements and the tone of the article is that although Catholic Charities was mentioned multiple times, no one at Catholic Charities was contacted for comment even though several staff members were present at the celebration last Saturday. The Lobo’s editorial practices quite simply lack care and do not comply with minimum journalistic standards. In the future, I would respectfully request that the Lobo more thoroughly vet the facts mentioned in its publications and provide organizations and individuals mentioned in its stories the opportunity to comment prior to publication.

The group, Speak Easy , is working to build a collection of poetry to be placed in a library the group will construct. Speak Easy Tangents co-founder Zachary Kluckman said all of the group’s founders are teachers who saw a need for educators to have greater access to poetry. “The resources they have available to them are pretty small. It tends to be Robert Frost and Shel Silverstein and Emily Dickinson, and that’s about it,” Kluckman said. “A lot of contemporary poetry, a lot of the stuff that happens, especially in spoken-word and slam, just isn’t available except through clips on YouTube. It’s just a limited resource and it’s hard for educators to compile together.” The group is building the library to help teachers educate students, and help anyone who is interested to educate themselves, Kluckman said. “Our thought process is if we put together a huge, huge library, then educators, as well as writers and youth poets, and anybody who just is interested can come in and find all this stuff under one roof without having to Google search for hours and hours and hours to find something appropriate,” he said. Kluckman said the library will loan books and CDs for free for a

couple days, just like a regular library, but it will also sell books and offer extended check-out of materials for a fee. He said the funding for the construction of the library will come from these sales as well as grant money. “It’s going to be interesting,” he said. “We’re really kind of hoping to make it a community-funded effort. That’s one of the reasons we’ll have books and CDs for sale in the library.” The group formed in late 2010 and held its first major event on Saturday, when Kluckman and Speak Easy Tangents’ other founders Katrina Guarascio and Jessica Helen Lopez held a book-release party, Kluckman said. He said all three poets released new work, and they kick off a poetry tour June 13th where they read their work and collect other poets’ work to go in the library. The group has already received some donations of poetry books and CDs through the mail from poets around the country, Kluckman said. “Between the three of us, we know poets from all over the world in all styles. So we put a call-out to them first,” he said. “While we’re touring and putting out our new books, we’re going to be asking for donations of books and CDs from local poets. So every state we hit, we’re going to do kind of a book drive.” After the tour, the group will launch a series of “culturalarts exchange programs” to collect new work for the library, Kluckman said. In the programs, Albuquerque poets will meet with poets from other big cities around

Educators learn to teach about stars by José M. Enríquez jenriq01@unm.edu

From the West Mesa to the East Mountains, Albuquerque has 30,000 acres of open space that people can survey, but the largest open space in the city is the night sky. Jodi Hedderig, manager of the Open Space Visitor Center, said the center provides information about these 30,000 acres and access to trails, gardens and wetlands. On Friday, June 17, the center will switch its focus from the land itself to the stars.

For the event, “Evening With Saturn,” the center will conduct a Teachers’ Astronomy Workshop, where educators in Albuquerque will learn about available astronomy resources. Afterward, there will be a star party, open to the public, where guests will take part in hands-on, astronomy-related activities with telescopes provided by The Albuquerque Astronomical Society and greenlaser-guided tours of the night sky, with a special focus on Saturn. Judith Stanley, education officer with the National Radio Astronomy Observatory, said astronomy is a good way to get students interested in physics, chemistry and math. “We’re using astronomy as a gateway science. Every human being has looked up at the stars,” she said. “As human beings, we all have

had that shared experience about wondering about the night sky.” The Open Space Visitor Center is the ideal place for star gazing in the city, Hedderig said. Usually light pollution makes it hard for people to see the night sky, but because of the location there is a small amount of clear night sky available. On June 17, the sun sets at 8:23 p.m. and the moon rises at 10:06 p.m., and the near-one-and-ahalf-hour gap is the best time to see Saturn. Although there have been concerns that smoke from the Wallow fire in Arizona will cloud up the night sky, Hedderig and Stanley

said the event will still happen.

“(We) will also include a star lab, which is a blow-up planetarium that people can get into and see the night sky, as it would appear during that season. Whether the skies are clear or not, we can still hold this program,” Hedderig said.

the world and exchange work. “The idea is that we give a bunch of books and CDs from Albuquerque poets to them, to do whatever they want to do with them. Archive them, put them in poets’ houses, clubs or whatever, libraries, so that we’re spreading Albuquerque’s literary tradition out there to the world, too,” he said. “But in exchange, they’re giving us their stuff and we’re putting all of this under one roof in the library.” Speak Easy Tangents will also work to bring youth and LGBT poets into the limelight. “I’m always trying to bring both of those communities in because they really are underrepresented in the literary world,” Kluckman said. “I think that’s a shame because there are many communities out there with many, many talented writers and they don’t get any exposure.” The group will first build its collection, then rent a storefront to house the collection and eventually construct a new building to serve as the permanent library. The plan is to rent the storefront within a year and start construction on the library as soon as the group’s funding allows. The group hopes to forge a relationship with the public library system by the time it has a building constructed, Kluckman said. “We’re trying to work as much as we can with the Albuquerque Public Library system,” he said. “We’re not sure what that structure looks like yet, but we’re trying to create a structure where we can work with them and be — I’m not sure of the right word — symbiotic, almost.”

New York transplants stay up late making art by Alexandra Swanberg aswanny@unm.edu

The small hours are defined as the hours in the early morning when insomniacs and natural night owls go off duty, passing the baton to the early birds. Four artists, all connected by past residency in New York City, have been exploring this idea, and their individual collections are “Small Hours,” an art exhibit at the KiMo Theater Art Gallery that will be up until July 23rd. The artists created pieces inspired by the hours that separate night and day, and there is a visual connection between their offerings. Upon entering the intimate space that neighbors the theater, the eye is first drawn to Kenneth Fernandez’s contribution. His construction cones may seem an odd choice for the sole focus of an art piece, but this is not to say the entertaining pieces have no aesthetic value. Fernandez said he thought about the nights he and his friends spent wandering the city streets, abusing construction zones they found in their path. “My idea was to kind of give the cones back a little bit of dignity,” he said. “So I started going around late at night taking photographs of cones and then I would give them something that they could possibly dream or aspire to.” He said he didn’t want the cones “doing taxes,” so the cones innocently play hopscotch, make snowmen and play jump rope. Just up the wall are John Myers’ pieces. Myers’ is a more sober take on the theme. His images (acrylic and gold leaf on canvas) focus on a single

subject as well — a female with pearly gray skin and her eyes cast away from the viewer. The color tones, as well as the subject’s expression, betray a sense of vulnerability, which Myers described as the feeling of solitude he experiences working into the dawn. “It’s a very alone time, but it can also be magic time,” Myers said. “That’s what I was trying to communicate — this magic.” Contrasting with the dewy skin colors are metallic silver, gold and blues, most notably in “Fractal Eye.” “I wanted to put a fractal in the eyeball, almost like you’re wired. You’re wide awake, it’s 4 a.m.,” he said. “Then I thought of someone sleeping, like right before dawn. Those are what came to me right away.” Lito Vales’ work is displayed on the far side of the gallery and consists of altered photographs and oil on paper. The linseed-oil and gouache-on-color photographs possess a very different emotive quality than the oil-on-paper portraits. Vales uses long, lean strokes of paint with only the living features of the photos peeking through the paint. His style manifests the chaos of city life. Jahneiah Lee Duran also chose to address tributes to the past. “The Gift of Prayer” is an interplay of light and dark conveying her struggle to balance what she associates with the opposing times of day. The small hours have been a time when Duran struggled with the loss of her mother last April. “Initially I started thinking about very shady things because I lived in Brooklyn for nine years and the city for 12,” she said. “It’s very deep and spiritual and serious.”

(Sonny) Reynaldo Rivera is a local sculptor and native New Mexican whose work focuses on the rugged beauty of southwest culture. His work is displayed in Colorado, Washington, Utah, California, Texas, Kansas, Arizona and New Mexico. His sculptures include Spanish Conquistador Don Juan de Onate, author Rudolfo Anaya and monuments to historic events such as the terrorist attacks of September 11th. He works mainly in bronze and clay. Daily Lobo: Is it difficult to make a living as an artist? Reynaldo Rivera: Very difficult. The economy affects artists a lot. Most of my art is commissioned by cities or counties or states. It’s monumental- meaning I make monumentsand when there is a government that says there is no money, then what can you do. I have made a good living, but not many have been as lucky as I have… There are hundreds of artists competing from all across the country for commissions. Art is not just a local thing anymore and there are some people that are very good that live elsewhere. Second place wins nothing. DL: What is the most important thing that you communicate through your art? RR: Well it has to tell a story and what I mean by that is it must be high energy. …For instance this sculpture tells the story of the curandera. These are uneducated people who deliver babies and know about la yerba buena. DL: How did you get interested

World Cup aspirations are pipe dreams for US by Isaac Avilucea ijavilu@gmail.com

My fellow Americans, this is a call to reason, not a plea of insanity: Give up on soccer promptly. Winning the World Cup is a pipe dream, a fool’s errand, a fairy tale with a reality-show ending. That’s the only feasible conclusion that we can draw after the U.S.’ onthe-wrong-side-of-history loss to Panama on Saturday during the group stage of the Gold Cup. No fewer than 36 minutes into the match, the Americans found themselves down 2-nil thanks to Gabriel Gomez, who converted a penalty kick to give Panama a sizeable lead. The loss marked the U.S.’ first group-stage setback in any Gold Cup. “Sometimes you just come out flat for whatever reason. At this level, and against a good team, you can’t do that,” Landon Donovan said about the U.S.’ betterlate-than-never showing. “Some nights you come out flat and you don’t get punished, but other nights you do. We learned a valuable lesson.” The lesson: The United States will never hoist the World Cup.

Chris O’Meara / Associated Press Panama goalkeeper Jaime Penedo (1) punches the ball past teammate Roman Torres (5) and United States defenders Clarence Goodson (21) and Carlos Bocanegra (yellow armband) during the second half of a CONCACAF Gold Cup soccer match on Saturday, June 11, 2011, in Tampa, Fla.

HAPS Listings MONday

Ever. Winning the World Cup is a national project, requiring more commitment and dedication than the Manhattan Project. And that is something America just doesn’t have. Soccer isn’t imbued into our cultural identity. To Brazilians, it’s a beautiful game. To Americans, there’s nothing beautiful about a 2-0 contest. It’s geometric, as black and white as the pentagons on a soccer ball. Short attention spans and long, languid 90-minute matches don’t mix. Soccer is the ultimate team sport, which explains why American children dabble in the game in youth leagues but soon after lose interest. Babe Ruth, Emmitt Smith and Michael Jordan — definitive American athletes — revolutionized baseball, football and basketball, and in one broad stroke underlined the main reason we prefer those sports above soccer: as much as they are team-based sports, there are built-in platforms for individual success, and Americans are born and socialized to become attention whores. On the contrary, one cares much less about the stars on a

World Cup roster. The emphasis is on winning and ethnic pride, not the elevation of one particular player. Soccer runs contrary to the American capitalist ethos, one that says, “Stand out or be stood on.” And sorry to say it, but it doesn’t matter that the U.S. women have twice won the international gauntlet. Forgive me if that sounds sexist. It’s not meant to be. Bear in mind that the takehome point in saying such a thing is this: when I started writing this column, I asked a friend, rather sheepishly, even though I was almost positive of the answer, “Has the women’s national team won the World Cup?” He answered rather sure of himself. “The American women? No. There’s no way.” Ah, the legacy of unconscious chauvinism, the machismo of misogyny. It’s unconscionable how, even today, women’s athletic achievements take a backseat to men’s — that they get lost and collect dust in the American sporting conscious. Forgive the

lobo track and field

Crossing ocean, finish line for All-American title by Cesar Davila

hendrix@unm.edu

The UNM track and field team has two All-American Englishmen. Rory Fraser and Keith Gerrard ran in the men’s 5,000-meter and 10,000meter races, respectively, this weekend at the NCAA Championships in Des Moines, Iowa, and both finished in the top eight. Fraser ran one of his best times (13:39.40) and said his strategy was to keep up with the fresh legs by not running the 10,000-meter the day before. For the first time since he left England three years ago, his parents were in the audience watching him compete.

World Cup

men’s team racked up only five points to place them in 41st place overall. The women’s team did not score. Even with the struggles, Franklin said he thought this season was an improvement from the last, which he said was a complete disaster. “We had some good performances, and some average, but overall better than last year,” he said. This marks the fourth consecutive year that UNM has sent track-and-field athletes to the NCAA championships and Franklin said it’s a step in the right direction. “You’re never 100 percent satisfied, but I’m very content with our progress,” he said.

“There were some guys that were just doing the 5k, and they knew that they could make it faster and help their chances to make the other guys even more tired,” he said. “So they basically just went quick from the very beginning, and I just tried to hold on as long as possible, and I just ran for as long as I could and that’s what got me sixth place.” Rain delays affected the competitors’ routines throughout the four-day event, but Fraser’s race was one of the few that had sunlight. “It rained all weekend,” he said. “And then the sun came out for my race and it felt like it was meant to be.” Nicholas Kipruto and Ross

Millington also ran the 5,000-meter. Kipruto took 11th place and Millington did not finish due to asthma-related complications from the humidity, said head coach Joe Franklin. Franklin said he was happy that Fraser finished his collegiate career on a good note. “Rory had an up-and-down season,” he said. “He did super well during cross country, ran very marginal during indoor track and field, and then started getting it going in outdoor and finished his college career as one of the best distance runners in the country.” Gerrard, the other All-American, ran his personal best time (28:36.33) in the 10,000 meter.

“Keith did great. He finished fourth in the Mountain West, and then seventh in the country,” Franklin said. In the high jump, Django Lovett rose 2.05 meters, and Richard York amassed 7,229 points in the Decathlon, as both took 22nd place in their respective events. David Bishop ran 3:52.30 in the 1,500-meter race but failed to qualify for the final heat. On the women’s side, Ruth Senior took ninth in the 10,000-meter race, just missing out on All-American honors. In the triple jump, Deanna Young leaped 12.36 meters and placed 11th. At the end of the competition, the

$80,000. What, then, accounts for the rise in salaries but fall in median income? Well, its boils down to this: The MLS poaches out-of-their-prime players from prestigious European leagues and pays them handsomely to legitimize our bastardized knock-off imitator. David Beckham, Thierry Henry and Rafael Marquez, to name a few. But our players? By all accounts, they make a high-middle-class wage that pales in comparison to our naturalized sports. Sporting and economicwise, they are second-class citizens in their own country. No one wants to play

soccer. It’s a thankless profession. Before 2010, when the league negotiated a new labor pact, the league minimum was about $32,000. It’s now $40,000, compared to the low $300,000s in the NFL, to the mid and low $400,000s in the MLB and NBA. There’s a reason all the best soccer players flock overseas to compete. Simply put, it’s not worth their time to stay in America. Not only that, but the MLS has spurred an outgrowth of expectations. Delusional Americans believe that because we have a pro soccer league, we are on the cusp of bringing the cup to the nation. Nothing could be further

digression. The point is that individualism in sports is tied to masculinity. Economic success is a measuring stick for male self-worth. In that respect, there is a spot for Marketplace Man, but not Marketplace Woman. To be sure, unlike other American sports, soccer doesn’t promote such a doctrine, either stylistically or economically. Take Major League Soccer for example. It pays its players minor league salaries. Per the Denver Post, MLS player salaries have risen 12 percent from 2010. The median income, though, plummeted from about $88,000 to NEW MEXICO DAILY LOBO
