Former UNM President F. Chris Garcia was booked into the Metropolitan Detention Center June 23 on charges of promoting prostitution, tampering with evidence and conspiracy, according to Bernalillo County Detention Center records. Garcia, 71, was arrested for his alleged ties to a 1,400-member, multistate online prostitution ring called Southwest Companions. The prostitution ring, which is based in Albuquerque, also conducts operations in Colorado, Arizona, New York and New Jersey, according to Garcia’s arrest warrant. APD discovered the prostitution ring in December 2007, and has been investigating since, Chief of Police Raymond Schultz said in a June 23 news conference. “You have an organization that is actively conducting counterintelligence operations,” he said. “This could have been very dangerous to any of the detectives working on this case. This investigation could expand to include human trafficking.” Garcia’s bond was set at $35,000 cash or surety bond after detectives searched his home and University office. Garcia posted the bond that night after less than 24 hours in jail. Political science student Sarah Morgese, however, said the allegations and Garcia’s proximity to UNM students concerns her. “Sure, it makes me wonder if he recruited at UNM, or if other UNM professors, students or staff are involved,” she said. “If the allegations are true, I feel apathetic knowing that a UNM professor who was actively recruiting prostitutes walked the halls of UNM. We probably encounter immoral individuals all the time in our daily routines and are simply unaware because not everything receives this kind of publicity.” A tip from an anonymous informant sparked an investigation into Garcia’s alleged ties with the prostitution ring. According to APD, Garcia is known by the username “Burque Pops” and is one of seven site moderators known as the “Hunt Club.” Moderators are in charge of bringing in new clients and prostitutes and vetting members to ensure they are not law enforcement agents. Garcia and other moderators are paid little, if anything, for their moderation duties, Lt. William

Zach Gould / Daily Lobo Legal council David Serna (left) and Chris Garcia stand in front of Metropolitan Court Judge Sharon Walton as they hear the state prosecutor’s recommendation for bail conditions. Garcia’s bail was continued at $35,000, and he was denied internet access. Roseman, the detective in charge of the case, said. “This was about sex,” he said. UNM President David Schmidly said Thursday in a University-wide email that he was shocked to learn the news of the pending investigation, especially since Garcia has been affiliated with the University for 41 years and served as its president. “We are all just coming to grips with the gravity and severity of this situation,” Schmidly said. “It is our understanding that the investigation is ongoing. The University is and will continue to cooperate fully with law enforcement.” APD has not found any evidence suggesting Garcia solicited to UNM students, faculty or staff for Southwest Companions, but the investigation is ongoing, he said. Garcia’s arrest comes just a few days after the arrest of David Flory, a 68-year-old professor at Farleigh Dickinson University in New Jersey. Flory allegedly owns and operates Southwest Companions, according to his arrest warrant. Roseman said officers found no evidence to suggest Flory and Garcia had made contact through their positions at their respective universities. “It’s pure coincidence,” Roseman said. “At this time we cannot see any other ties — the other members are not in that same status so we cannot lump them into the same group.” Flory was arrested June 19 at the Nob Hill Starbucks on Tulane and Central while conducting business

operations for the organization. He was charged with 40 counts of promoting prostitution. “This is just the beginning of this investigation; more arrests are possible,” Schultz said. Detectives created false online usernames and used confidential informants to grant them access to the site. The site operates on a threetiered hierarchy, and members have varying levels of access to the site depending on their status, Roseman said.

reached a certain point, you would receive trusted status.” Roseman said fees for engaging in sexual acts with prostitutes ranged from less than $200 to as much as $10,000. “These are not your typical street prostitutes,” he said. “It was not a cheap organization.” Through their investigation, APD detectives found that discussion boards exclusive to high-ranking members included guides on how to identify and avoid law enforcement, prevent STDs and rate prostitutes using a starring system. Flory set up a code of acronyms that referred to various sexual acts. Site members used the acronyms when soliciting sex online, according to Flory’s arrest warrant. In December 2010, Virginia Herringer was arrested on charges of promoting prostitution, possession of drugs and child abuse. Through her arrest, detectives said they learned the full extent of the Southwest Companions operation. APD detectives learned that the website had been up since 2005 and switched owners several times before Flory took over in 2009. Roseman said the prostitution ring is unlike anything APD has ever seen. “We’ve seen similar things, but not organized in this manner,” he said. “This is typically like what we would see in a drug operation. We haven’t seen anything like this, at least not here in Albuquerque.”

“I feel apathetic knowing that a UNM professor who was actively recruiting prostitutes walked the halls of UNM. We probably encounter immoral individuals all the time...” ~Sarah Morgese, UNM Student “There was a vetting process,” he said. “You were required to actually engage in sexual activity with a prostitute, and once you engaged in this activity and paid the prostitute, she would send an email to the moderator and after you had done this twice or so you would gain access to the first level in the tier system.” Users would continue climbing the tier system so long as they met the site’s requirements. “Once in this verified status, you were required to spend some time with other women,” Roseman said. “An email would be sent to the moderator describing the act and amount paid, and the moderator would track it and when you

In Rev. Scott Sharp’s Sunday sermon, he reminded the congregation of F. Chris Garcia’s dedication to the church, his family and his community. Sharp, senior pastor of Central United Methodist Church, where Garcia regularly attended services with his wife, said Garcia was eager to help others and engage in ministry. “He is very supportive; an active part of a quartet we have and an active part of choir,” Sharp said. “He is very friendly, always has a smile on his face, and he is a great person to be around.” Sharp said he has spoken with Garcia since the arrest and is supporting him spiritually. “We’re in a position where we are doing what we can as a church, and we hope that justice is done and the truth comes out,” he said. “In the meantime we are not making any judgments concerning what that is about. We are supportive of Chris and Sandy (Garcia’s wife), and hopeful that the truth will reveal he is innocent.” Garcia was arrested June 23 and charged with promoting prostitution, conspiracy, and evidence tampering in connection with a 1,400-member online prostitution ring named Southwest Companions, according to Albuquerque Police Department. APD officers said Garcia’s role was to help recruit new prostitutes and clients for the organization. Ed Vigil, a fellow churchgoer, said Sharp’s June 26 sermon addressing Garcia’s arrest was powerful. Vigil said the news shocked him. “God calls us to unknown places,” he said. “We are all broken people. Let the one without sin cast the first stone.” Garcia’s résumé includes hundreds of publications and thousands of hours of community service. He was inducted into the Senior Hall of Fame of Silver Horizons New Mexico in 2009. The senior community honors four senior citizens each year for outstanding contributions to the community. Lori Feibelman, Silver Horizons executive director, said she prefers not to comment on the charges against Garcia. Mark Peceny, the UNM political science department chair was unavailable for comment, and members of Phi Kappa Phi, an academic honor society in which Garcia was involved, also refused to comment. Garcia’s crowning achievement at the University of New Mexico came in

Adopt ‘till employees drop by Elizabeth Cleary

managingeditor@dailylobo.com In a city where nothing save for the occasional convenience store stays open all night, at the end of last week it was never too late, or too early, to adopt a dog or cat from Animal Humane New Mexico. From June 22-24, Animal Humane NM hosted its 24/7 adoption event, the first event of its kind in New Mexico. The shelter stayed open all night Wednesday, June 22 and Thursday, June 23, in order to boost adoption rates and raise awareness of pet overpopulation problems. By June 24, the last day of the event, employee Rex Nowacki had managed to catch a total of eight hours of sleep over the previous two nights, and he said much of it was in the form of short, one-hour naps. “Wednesday I worked the 12 p.m. to 8 a.m. shift at reception, and I was dozing off a little bit, but we made it through,” he said. Peggy Weigle, Animal Humane New Mexico executive director, said the shelter receives an influx of animals in the summer because

dogs and cats give birth in the spring. “Summer time is the time of year when we get inundated with pets that are being surrendered,” she said. “They get to be about eight weeks old and suddenly people are bringing them in boxes.” The shelter’s goal was to stay open for 24 hours starting Wednesday until 200 dogs and cats had been adopted or the clock struck six on Friday evening, whichever came first. Unfortunately, by 6 p.m. Friday the shelter had only adopted out 112 pets. Regardless, Weigle said the event was a huge success, and over the course of the event the shelter adopted out about three times as many dogs and cats as it normally would have in that time. “At this point the staff needs to go home and rest, and frankly all of the animals are exhausted, too, because they’ve been getting walked and shown and walked and shown,” she said. Weigle said Animal Humane NM is not a no-kill shelter, meaning the shelter will euthanize animals under certain circumstances,

such as extreme overpopulation at the shelter. She said that in over a year and a half, Animal Humane NM hasn’t had to euthanize one healthy pet, thanks in part to the HEART ordinance, which passed in Albuquerque in 2006. The ordinance requires pet owners to pay an annual $150 fee and obtain a license in order to own pets that aren’t spayed or neutered. “Albuquerque does have a higher euthanasia rate per 1000 population than many other cities our size,” she said. “That said, Albuquerque has made great strides since 2006. … The euthanasia rate in our city has gone down 25 percent in that time, so it is getting better. People are becoming more educated.” Even though he had to function on little sleep to help run the adoption event, Nowacki said working at Animal Humane is the best job he has ever had. “I absolutely enjoy coming to work every day,” he said. “I work with great people, and just being able to touch the lives of all of the animals and all of the adopters that come in. It’s the most rewarding job I can imagine.”

her partner, Stephanie Croft. The two women are not yet legally married, though they share the same name. They are planning to move to New York and get married. They were in a restaurant when they learned the samesex marriage bill had passed. “We cried over dinner, right into the mozzarella sticks,” Stephanie Croft said. Throngs of cheering supporters greeted Gov. Andrew Cuomo as he led off the parade two days after signing the historic bill that made New York the sixth state to extend full marriage rights to gay couples. “New York has sent a message to the nation,” Cuomo said before the march down Fifth Avenue. “It

is time for marriage equality.” Revelers hoisted signs that said “Thank you, Gov. Cuomo” and “Promise kept.” Parade organizers said a halfmillion people participated. Cuomo marched with his girlfriend, Food Network personality Sandra Lee, New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg and openly gay elected officials including New York City Council Speaker Christine Quinn. “You couldn’t hear yourself think, it was so loud,” Quinn said at the end of the parade route. “People were crying, jumping up and down and screaming. Everyone was smiling. It was unbelievable.” The crowd, standing a dozen

New York the sixth state to legalize gay marriage by Verena Dobnik

The Associated Press NEW YORK — One of the world’s oldest and largest gay pride parades turned into a carnival-like celebration of samesex marriage Sunday as hundreds of thousands of revelers rejoiced at New York’s new law giving gay couples the same marital rights as heterosexual couples. This year, the revelry went beyond floats, music and dancing. It included wedding plans. “We’ve been waiting to get married in Central Park for years, and now we got here just in time for history to be made,” said Bryce Croft of Kettering, Ohio, who attended the parade with

The couple, both 20, were dressed as brides. Careaga said her mother called her, crying tears of joy after the New York Senate voted on the measure Friday. “Every mother wants her child to be happily married,” Careaga said. State Sen.

not decided when they would get married, “but now we get to decide, and it couldn’t be better than that.” In Chicago, organizers of the city’s parade scrambled to repair dozens of floats after someone slashed their tires overnight at a garage on the South Side. Parade coordinator Richard Pfeiffer said as many as 50 of the approximately 75 floats had damaged tires. The parade was to go ahead as planned, though some of the 250 entries might be out of order. “Whoever decided to do this is not going to affect the parade,” Pfeiffer said. “We’re all going to be out celebrating. We’re still going to go on.”

2002 when he was named UNM’s 17 President. His nomination came after a long career at UNM, where he served as dean of the College of Arts and Sciences, vice president of Academic Affairs and provost. He currently serves as a professor emeritus in the political science department. UNM political science major Sarah Morgese said she sees Garcia’s conduct as separate from his contributions to the University and to its overall reputation.

“I don’t think Garcia’s arrest reflects on the political science department in a negative way at all,” she said. “As a political science major, I have taken many excellent courses by many wise, dedicated professors and can attest to the strength of the department as a whole. If the allegations are true, Garcia’s arrest is nothing but a reflection of his own character.” Garcia’s commitment to the community is reflected by the dozens of awards he has received over the years, including the Zia Award for

Outstanding UNM Alumni in 1997, the American Political Science Association Goodnow Award for Distinguished Service in 2001 and the Chief Manuelito Navajo Nation Award for Meritorious Contributions to Navajo Education. Garcia has provided more than 100 international, national and local media interviews concerning politics across the state, nation and globe. He is an expert in Hispanic politics, has written 12 books and more than 100 articles, and taught classes in 17 subject areas.

spend time in jail. “People don’t recognize just how bad it is, and I’m here to tell you it’s bad,” he said. “Who wants to be held fiscally responsible for a multi-million dollar fire?” Breen said he recommends going to public fireworks demonstrations and buying fireworks only at local vendors. Chris and Teri Roybal operate a TNT firework tent on the corner of San Pedro Drive and Central Avenue. He said business has been busy as usual, but people seem to be more cautious about the fireworks they buy. “TNT doesn’t sell any fireworks that are not legal,” Roybal said. “They make sure all the tents have fire extinguishers and are up to code. The fire marshal comes through here regularly and we are in good standing with them.” Roybal said he has firework safety printouts available at the registers, as well as safety instructions on their carryout bags.

Breen said the Fourth of July is AFD’s busiest day of the year. He said the fire department normally responds to about 200 calls per day, but on the Fourth of July it responds to almost 800 calls. “The bottom line is that we need the community’s help,” he said. “We have lobbied for the ordinance. The fire department has done all it can do, and now and we need the community’s help in keeping the community safe.” Breen said firework users often don’t consider the consequences of irresponsible firework use. “People often don’t recognize that their actions can result in disaster,” Breen said. “Conditions are so dry that if you get an illegal firework that lands in the Bosque, (it) could result in a true disaster.”

silicon thumb bands are also a part of the campaign and serve as a visual reminder not to text and drive. “It makes you think, because it’s very difficult (to text) when you feel them and you see them,” she said. Harms encourages groups to meet and talk about the consequences of distracted driving and would love to see UNM students get involved the campaign. “We’re eager to have as many citizens as possible participate in this,” she said. Bill Anderson, KRQE’s resident general manager, said news stations often report on vehicle fatalities related to texting and other forms of distracted driving, and they wanted to do something positive to help prevent the problem. “Prior to doing this, we spoke to the governor and the mayor and law

enforcement, and we determined this is just a really huge deal,” he said. According to the W82TXT web page, in 2009 5,474 people were killed and approximately 448,000 were injured in motor vehicle crashes in which the driver was distracted. On average, texting causes drivers to look away from the road for 4.6 seconds, and at 55 mph the vehicle will travel the length of a football field while the driver isn’t looking at the road, the website said. Harms said bands are available at all New Mexico Taco Bells and Rio Grande Credit Union locations throughout the summer. Albuquerque’s Clear Channel radio stations, including Big I 107.9, 100.3 The Peak, 94 Rock, Classic Country 104.7 and 104.1 The Edge, are also distributing the bands. “We’re just telling people to knock it off and wait to text,” Harms said.

Fireworks not worth the heat hriley@unm.edu

With five wildfires burning in New Mexico, the Albuquerque Fire Department and Albuquerque Police Department are especially concerned about blazes during this year’s Independence Day celebrations. According to Fire Chief James Breen, APD officers will assist firefighters in preventing fires caused by stray and improperly used fireworks. “We are taking this very seriously, and we are not going to be writing warnings,” he said. Breen said the APD officers will look for people using illegal fireworks or misusing fireworks. Aerial fireworks and fireworks that are louder than a cap gun are banned, as well as fireworks that go higher than 10 feet or wider than a sixfoot circle. Breen said people caught misusing fireworks could be fined and even

I pledge to never drive distracted. It’s not worth dying for.” Gov.

With over 1,000 clients and a UNM bigwig moderating the whole operation (not very well, I might add), there’s bound to be some names we recognize.” by “Mary E. Woods” posted Friday “Professor F. Chris Garcia was Dean of Arts and Sciences when I was a student in that department. He was a greatly admired and respected leader. This sad event has shaken the University of New Mexico community, the alumni of UNM, the Albuquerque community at large and Central United Methodist Church. Mr. Garcia sings with a choral group who stir the spirit of those who hear them. I ask all concerned citizens to unite with us in prayer for the Garcia family, that God may restore them to their reputable life and allow them to rise above this tragedy.” by “Annie Shank” posted Saturday “I find it very difficult to believe that Dr. Garcia was involved in this. I’ve worked with this man, and talked with him many times, and I see him as a good and giving person. Then I look at who the accuser is. I know that “naming names” to get a deal is pretty indiscriminate. I wonder what the evidence is? It can’t be very good, with that bail low. I will watch with interest the progress of this case.

Humans’ severe misperception of reality will make us extinct Editor, After decades of exile to environmentalism’s legal fringes, the notion that natural systems could have legal rights is receiving serious attention. Bolivia’s Law of Mother Earth is set to pass. “Each time there is a movement to confer rights onto some new entity, the proposal is bound to sound odd or frightening or laughable,” wrote University of Southern California professor Christopher Stone. “This is partly because until the rightless thing receives its rights, we cannot see it as anything but a thing for the use of us.”

You know, everything was fine until Al Gore had to point out the whole climate-change thing, but now New York suddenly has a seven-monthlong winter. The glaciers are melting, lowering salt content in the waters, and the atmospheric C02 level makes the ocean more acidic, with lower oxygen content, coastlines are going underwater, there are severe droughts and monsoons, and all the polar bears are dying of heatstroke in ice capcum-deserts. We were all like Wile E. Coyote, running off the cliff and across the air. Then Al had to point out we were running on nothing, at which point we looked down and began our downward crash. As soon as we start looking at the climate, it starts doing all this crazy shit. It follows that all we have to do is try to believe it isn’t happening, and it will all just stop. If we just pretend like all the shit we keep doing has no effect on the atmosphere, and if we tell everyone Al is just a stupid adulterer anyway, then everyone will stop thinking about this thing they’re probably perpetuating with their minds anyway. Mind over matter. Reasoning skills over climate change. Come on, dudes. We can do this. It’s like Buddha said: “You cannot travel the path until you have become the path itself.” You must become the not-climate-change you want to see, the nonclimate change you want to be. Yes we can.

LETTERS Stone stated that until recently African Americans (the previously rightless) were perceived to have been put on Earth to be used as the White people saw fit. In some countries today, women are still perceived to be rightless and are used as men see fit. There are far too many humans beings who perceive that all those who do not share our limited, and limiting, perception of reality deserve no rights (and are rightless). As long as “Might makes Right” remains the way some humans perceive reality, any group, or anything that some group has the illusion of control over, will be deemed rightless, and thus available for the powerful group to use (or misuse, or abuse) as they choose. This includes anyone or anything on this planet and the planet itself. This misperception of reality, which is

Gay Jesus play feels like Sunday school by Justino Brokaw

culture@dailylobo.com What if Jesus Christ was born gay in modern day Texas, instead of all those centuries ago? Terrence McNally’s play, “Corpus Christi,” starts with this intriguing premise. Disappointingly, the playwright seems only half-interested in pursuing it ,and the Aux Dog Theatre’s new production has mixed success making McNally’s confused, muddle of a play resonate. Despite receiving scorn from many religious groups when the play first opened in 1998, “Corpus Christi” is actually a fairly straightforward retelling of the Christ story, from birth to Last Supper to Crucifixion. In McNally’s version, however, Jesus is a young boy growing up in Corpus Christi, Texas and discovering his homosexuality, much like McNally did once. During the prologue, an actor proclaims that “some say this story can never be told enough.” However, McNally’s play is Christ’s tale as it is always told, and the play is often indistinguishable from how

it might appear on a Sunday school stage. The playwright develops this idea in fascinating moments throughout the play. Seeing Jesus preside over a marriage between two men and then slap a rabbi angered by this “blasphemy” provokes a lot of thought and makes for good theater. However, these moments are too few in the play, and what remains is a simple retreading of a familiar tale. While the direction is competent and clear, the acting varies. Most of the all-male cast of actors play several roles, with the exception of the actors who play Joshua (Jesus’s modern alias) and Judas. Joshua Ball plays the Son of God and is adept at the traditional Jesus, believable in his moments of both innocence and compassion. Unfortunately, in the moments when Jesus lashes out or does anything we don’t expect, Ball seems to be playing a different character rather than a growing one.   Garrick Milo makes for an intriguing, sympathetic Judas, yet he’s largely shortchanged by the script. His scenes are too NEW MEXICO DAILY LOBO

few and his romance with Jesus is undeveloped. The rest of the cast struggles to entertain at times. McNally injects a lot of awkward comedy into the tale, and the actors make some of these moments sing, but other times they only grate. When the play reaches its zenith — Joshua’s crucifixion — most of the actors opt for the overly dramatic.  It largely rings false. Though we’re introduced to Joshua’s many apostles and see them through the good times and the bad, they don’t ever quite feel like real human beings. When tragedy strikes, the wailing begins, and it comes off as melodrama rather than actual torment.   The design of the production, though sensible, leaves something to be desired. The stage is mostly bare save for some chairs, benches and tables brought on as needed. Prop tables and costume racks are onstage at the play’s beginning and remain throughout. Strips of brown fabric hang across the stage walls, but they are too vague to add much to

any locale. At first, seeing the actors transform into their respective characters within view on the stage is a very interesting effect. As the play continues, the prop tables and costume racks only distract, making each location feel less real. Ultimately, “Corpus Christi” is disappointingly familiar. The play it could have been is there for all to see. It is a story of a Jesus Christ, born in Texas, growing up as he discovers

his divinity and homosexuality, and it could have been fantastic theater. But it is a routine dramatization of Jesus Christ’s story as it has been told thousands of times before. Aux Dog’s production of “Corpus Christi” largely follows the playwright’s lead, settling for a comfortable, Sundayschool-theater experience, and only occasionally trying to be a unique, memorable story of its own.

Dylan Smith / Daily Lobo Sun light streams into the cab of a classic Ford truck. This truck was part of a classic car show at the Route 66 Malt Shop on Saturday.

Man living a 50s fantasy by Alexandra Swanberg aswanny@unm.edu

Central Avenue, a piece of American and Albuquerque history, was known simply as Route 66.

When Eric Szeman and Diane Avila, along with their son Andrew Szeman, established the Route 66 Malt Shop 15 years ago in Old Town, their goal was to give patrons a taste of that Route 66 of yesteryear.

Mon-Fri 11am-10pm • Sat 12-10pm 2210 Central 266-5222 •• Across Across from from UNM 2210 Central SE SE •• 266-5222 UNM

Now situated in Nob Hill just east of Carlisle Boulevard, Eric Szeman said the 1950s-themed shop has been their way of sharing a time when America was the leader of the world in every respect.

“Kids I know are looking back,” Eric said. “Music was hip, cars were hip, everything was hip. So in a way I feel sorry for kids today because they don’t have that. We’re trying to give them a little bit of that.” Although the shop itself is authentically 50s, Andrew said his family’s appreciation for history extends far beyond a single decade. With a musical taste that spans the 1920s through the 1960s, Andrew said their ambition is to transform the shop into a hub of the oldest school of entertainment. “We’ve tried to make our restaurant to where it’s not just a 50s diner, it’s a 20s to the 50s-60s diner,” he said. “We’d like to find investors and people to help turn it into a jazz nightclub, maybe a speakeasy where it’s just real lowkey, real cool, need a password to get in, where you just hear the best jazz and blues and burlesque shows and the whole deal.” The change in location is essential to their success, Eric said, explaining that Nob Hill is a neighborhood that needs the kind of joint they have in mind. “Nob Hill is trying to get itself ‘proclaimed’ an entertainment district, but there’s not a whole lot of entertainment,” he said. “I mean, there’s a couple places in Nob Hill that have live music. There’s not a dance floor in Nob Hill. We want to be one of the reasons people would call Nob Hill an entertainment district.” In the meantime, Eric said he has been establishing a network of classic car enthusiasts and owners in New Mexico.

ambition since the shop opened has been to organize classic cars shows, eventually gathering as many as 2,000 classic cars to show between Carlisle and Washington, making the Route 66 Malt Shop the home of the hot rod. “The organizational foundation is already there,” he said. “I personally know two world-class hot rod owners who live in Albuquerque. I mean they have cars on the cover of hot rod magazines, so they have connections.… There’s more hot rodders and classic beach cars that are driven on a daily basis in this town than anywhere else in the country.” Andrew said they are looking into having a car show for the Nob Hill Summerfest and another crawl in September. “I figure the more we do, the more people will show up and it’ll be more of a regular thing and people will be more like, ‘Oh, cool, car show, let’s go check it out, let’s go have a nice, cold bottled Coke,’” he said. “Talk shop, talk cars, and it’ll be like the 50s.”

‘Montana, isn’t it nothing but brown and dust?’ by Graham Gentz

culture@dailylobo.com The day before I arrived on the Flathead Indian Reservation of Western Montana, the small town of Charlo had its Mission Mountain Testicle Festival. “Can we not talk about it?â€? said Tim, one of the Christian biologists I met who worked on the Flathead Res. “It’s a bull! Not a person,â€? said Kari, another resident of the research station named the Duck Shack where I stayed. The Duck Shack housed the biology researchers’ project, “Team Hopper,â€? so dubbed by Jes Martin. The UNM Alumna created predator enclosures and prepared netted cages for grasshoppers packed with plants and food sources from different locations, such as from the National Bison Range. This was the last bastion of the American Bison, their numbers taken from 50 million to 100 in a few decades. “I know,â€? Tim protested. “But it still makes you think.â€? He groaned. “It’s just not something I ever want to think about.â€? Though for whatever reason, he did. “My roommate learned in music appreciation that they would ‌ like at Catholic convent or whatever. They would castrate choir boys so that they would sing higher pitch.â€? Kari was unconvinced. “Is that true?â€? she squeaked. “Yeah,â€? said Tim. “Why would they do that to them?â€? Kari asked.

“So that they would sing higher pitched — to make them sound prettier. � “But that’s not a good enough reason!� Kari cried. Tim’s anger and discomfort burst all at once. “Nothing is ever a good reason!� he suddenly screamed. The Duck Shack, safe from encroaching sexual organs, was 45 minutes past cell phone service and technological civilization, set on the very top of an intimidatating hill overlooking a river valley, set on all sides by green mountains and most predominately by the mythic things known as the Missions. The Mission Mountains look like the fabled features of a creation myth. They are crashed snowy pieces of God that cut the sky in half. Gods live on these mountains. The Sandias, too, are part of the Rocky Mountain Range. Montana is directly north of New Mexico. Its northern border brushes Canada. Montana is a place Canadians would call “The Tropics.� The Flathead Res looks nothing like the Indian Reservations of New Mexico. The areas and towns teem with life — human and otherwise — and swell of wealth and quality of life. Evidence suggests an ongoing bitterness toward Anglo invasion. One roadside historic landmark read: “‘Flathead’ was a misnomer applied to the Salish (tribe) by Lewis and Clark. No one knows for sure where it came from, but like many early names for tribes, it stuck. It seems that the whites

almost always had a handle to hang on a tribe before they met anyone who could tell them their own name for themselves.� The people seemed not to care so much. Like when I first came to New Mexico, the people I left behind feared the foreign place I was going to make my home. I was told many such strange thoughts, like that English would disappear and communication would become impossible. I found similar impressions from those in the 505 as I journeyed to the 406. “Isn’t it nothing but brown and dust?� one of my reporters asked me. This seemed an odd question for a New Mexican to ask. Montanans gave me a start I didn’t expect. Structured like New Mexico, there are very few long roads through unoccupied land that connect small, select towns. The people you would find gave the physical appearance of stereotypical small-town white trash, but acted nothing like it. I meet Bucky in Tiny’s Taven, fresh from Charlo’s Testicle Festival. Bad teeth, a thick hick accent and trucker hats could not hide the kind, worldly man he was. Bucky had been to 57 countries. He kindly played pool with beautiful Team Hopper field leader Katie Lee, hitting on her without a hint of sleaze. I asked him why he lived in Montana. “The land, man,� Bucky said. “You gotta love the land.� It had just hailed death in a split second and the patrons of

DAILY LOBO

Dylan Smith / Daily Lobo Thousands of abandoned trucks sit in a Montana field overlooked by the Mission Mountains. Reporter Graham Gentz spent a week absorbing the mountainous culture. Tiny’s rushed to the front lines, employing fierce broom combat against encroaching baby-fistsized hail and keeping the bar safe and dry. Bucky and I smoked in the calm aftermath. “But, I’ll tell you, man,� Bucky continued. “There ain’t nothing like the sunset over an ocean.� Bucky, of anyone I had met, seemed like the man to ask: “Do you have a favorite ocean, Bucky?� He laughed at the question and I watched him fade away as he considered it. “Well,� he began, accent never fading. “The Atlantic Ocean is this color of teal. But the Pacific Ocean is this deep blue. And the Indian Ocean? If you catch it in right way, the whole thing has this silvery color about it.� He laughed again. “And the Arctic Ocean is so cold you really don’t give a damn.� Bucky represented the incredible intelligence and grace of everyone I made met who made

Montana their home. But none were as special as DC Mike. Dirty Corner Mike is founder of the Arlee chapter of the Hermanos bike club. He is ancient-looking gaunt man with the thick, white beard and gravelly voice appropriate for a man who lived on mountain in a converted school bus and tepee. His brown hands and thin fingers are never far from his pocket of Checkers cigarettes, his collection of guitars or the well-scratched ears of his pack of kind, mutty dogs. Flooding was eminent on the Flathead. In June, the rains fell heavily and the rivers swelled. The Mission Mountains still set with snows refusing to melt. With Team Hopper, I helped the residents of Arlee pack fresh sand bags and load them on trucks. “It hasn’t even started yet,� I was told with ominous warning yet warm humor about the inevitability of danger. “Once the snows melt, that’ll really be it.�

US takes over despite few fans by Cesar Davila

hendrix@unm.edu Twenty years ago in soccer, Mexico vs. USA meant another win for our southern neighbors. In fact, it was so lopsided from 1934 to 1991 that Mexico dominated the U.S., going 232-3. Since then, however, it has become one of the best sports rivalries in North America. It doesn’t have the history of Yankees vs. Red Sox, or the popularity of Lakers vs. Celtics, but it does have two countries whose fans and players genuinely dislike one another. Since 1991, the U.S. is a remarkable 13-10-7 against Mexico. This is extraordinary given America’s disinterest in soccer. Americans have little incentive to play the game, as they have much more to gain financially in football, basketball and baseball. The average American sports fan might be able to name two MLS players, and both of them are European (France’s Thierry Henry and England’s David Beckham). Every time the U.S. takes the field against Mexico the stadium is filled almost entirely with Mexican fans, regardless of which side of the border the game is held on. Mexico always

seems to have “home-field advantage” in games against U.S., yet the U.S. has a winning record. Saturday’s Gold Cup championship match at the Rose Bowl in Pasadena, Calif. brought 93,420 spectators, 80,000 of which were rooting for Mexico, wrote Bill Plaschke of the Los Angeles Times. U.S. head coach Bob Bradley said he is well aware of the low turnout of U.S. fans at games. “Obviously… the support that Mexico has on a night like tonight makes it a home game for them,” Bradley told Plaschke. “It’s part of something we have to deal with on the night.” The national sport of Mexico is soccer. Kids are embedded with chants of “ole, ole” and “si se puede” from birth. In the U.S., soccer is still an afterthought to sports like NASCAR and golf. But you’d think U.S. fans would care about the rivalry since the U.S. has had the upper hand on Mexico in the last two decades. And that upper hand has essentially sparked the teams’ rivalry. In 2002,the U.S. knocked Mexico out of the World Cup in the round of 16. Obviously, Mexico didn’t want to

Terrill / AP Photo Mexico’s Giovani Dos Santos, left, moves the ball around U.S. goalkeeper Tim Howard just before scoring during the second half of the Gold Cup soccer final against the US on Saturday in Pasadena, Calif. Mexico won 4-2 and earned a bid to the 2014 World Cup in Brazil. lose to any team, but it was the ultimate slap in the face to see a mediocre soccer team embarrass the pride of Mexico. The frustrated Mexican team started to get physical at the end of the game, and Mexican defender Rafael Marquez was ejected for spearing U.S. player Cobi Jones in the back. That match sparked a chain of events that would continue to add fuel to the fire. U.S. player Landon Donovan has been at the center of the hatred. Donavon has been an instrumental

part of the recent success of the national team, but is demonized in Mexico for his antics off the field. It goes without saying that his urinating on sacred grass in Jalisco in front of the Mexican media days before a qualifying match didn’t help matters. That incident led to fans in Estadio Azteca stadium in Mexico City tossing cups of vomit and urine at Donovan in a 2009 meeting between the teams. In addition, Mexican fans also chant “Osama” to get under Americans’ skin. In 2010, Donovan starred in a

lottery commercial shown in Mexico where he dressed up in a sombrero and poncho, wearing a thick mustache. Many Mexicans took offense to the advertisement and called Donovan a racist. With Saturday’s 4-2 come-frombehind victory, Mexico has won three straight games against the red, white and blue, and hopes to regain the dominance it once had. With a little pride and effort, this North American rivalry has the potential to be greater than that.

rtomari@unm.edu The New Mexico Bowl has been given a fashionable new look. ESPN and Gildan Activewear Inc. announced a multi-year deal on June 20 to sponsor the bowl beginning with the 2011 Gildan New Mexico Bowl at University Stadium. The game kicks off the college football bowl season. The deal is part of a collegiate partnership reached by ESPN Regional Television and Gildan. Jeff Siembieda has been the executive director of the annual bowl game since 2006, and said the sponsorship deal has been five years in the making. “This is a great day for us,” he said. “We had six months to put on the first event, and of course last year we had our fifth annual game. We’re continuing to move forward and enter into a new era with the Gildan New Mexico Bowl. We are so pleased to announce today our new title partner and to welcome Gildan to the ESPN family and to the New Mexico Bowl.” Glenn Chamandy, Gildan’s president, said the deal with ESPN and the bowl game will help build the brand. He also said the sponsorship means that 500 tickets will be donated to educational and youth groups in Albuquerque. The bowl game has traditionally been a battle between two teams from the Mountain West Conference and the Western Athletic Conference, but that’s about to change. The New Mexico Bowl reached an agreement with the Pac-12 conference — formerly the Pac-10 — that is slated to start this year. “We are excited to begin our relationship with the Pac-12 this year and to have our game showcased as the

DAILY LOBO new mexico

first bowl game of the year once again,” Siembieda said. “The Saturday afternoon time slot has been very good to us. Kicking off the bowl season in New Mexico with the whole nation watching a Pac-12 team take on a team from the Mountain West is a great opportunity for our state.” And the Worldwide Leader in Sports is roused about the chance to broadcast the game for the sixth year in a row. Clint Overby, ESPN Senior of Events, said Gildan is a perfect sponsorship for the New Mexico Bowl.

“It’s hard to believe it’s been five years since we started this game, but it’s been a great five years,” he said. “When we started this, there was always the intention and the vision to find the right fit from corporate America into this game, a company that would share the same passion and commitment to the culture and the state that it warrants.” The bowl game will also spice up its logo. The new New Mexico Bowl logo will feature the Gildan logo, but it will maintain the Zia symbol and feature the Sandia Mountains. Siembieda said the collaboration between the bowl game, ESPN and Gildan is remarkable. “They want to be part of this event and they want to grow with this event,” Siembieda said. “It is not just about saying it is the Gildan New Mexico Bowl.”

The Associated Press

ATLANTA — Nick Charles, the former taxi driver who became CNN’s first sports anchor and served in that role for nearly two decades, died Saturday after a two-year struggle with bladder cancer, the cable network reported. He was 64. He died peacefully in his New Mexico home, his wife Cory, a CNN International producer, told the network. Nicholas Charles Nickeas grew up in Chicago, working late-night jobs in high school to help his family, according to CNN. He went to Columbia College Chicago to study communications and drove a taxi to help pay his tuition. He was still driving taxis in 1970 when he landed his first gig with WICS in Springfield, Ill. He adopted the name Nick Charles at the urging of his news director, the network said. Charles left Springfield to work at WJZ-TV in Baltimore and WRC-TV in Washington, and then began at Atlanta-based CNN on the network’s first day on June 1, 1980. He made his name before a national audience teaming with Fred Hickman for almost 20 years on “Sports Tonight,” a daily highlight show that battled with ESPN for viewers. Charles became such a popular TV personality that Topps put his face on a trading card, CNN reported. “We just clicked from the very beginning,” Hickman told CNN. “In television, you always have personality conflicts. Nick and I never had one. Nick and I have always had a tremendous relationship.” Hickman said Charles was a “great inspiration” to him, and described his former colleague as a “tremendous storyteller.” “He could literally do a story about

a horse and make you think this horse was like a person,” Hickman said. “He could take boxing and turn it into something poetic.” Charles told CNN recently that boxing was “one of my loves,” whether reporting on Muhammad Ali’s later years or covering the ear-biting incident involving Mike Tyson and Evander Holyfield.

NICK CHARLES From 2001 to 2010, he worked as a fight announcer for Showtime and Top Rank, according to The Baltimore Sun. In his final months, Charles told Sports Illustrated that he wished he could be involved in one last fight. Upon reading this, HBO executives invited him to Atlantic City to call a fight between two featherweights. “The HBO people told me it was the most joyous fight call they had ever heard,” Charles told the Sun in April. With his well-coiffed, curly black hair and sharp-looking suits, Charles brought GQ-like style to CNN’s broadcasts. But he also was known as a skilled interviewer who related easily to subjects while not being shy about asking tough questions. “I think when people look back on

Nick in years to come, they’re going to remember the hair,” former CNN sports anchor Jim Huber quipped to the network. “He loved that hair. It used to just drive us crazy. But in all seriousness, I think they’re going to look back on one of the great sports journalists of all time.” CNN Worldwide president Jim Walton said Saturday that Charles helped put CNN on the map. “He brought intelligence, style and heart to his work — qualities that translated to our company and inspired those of us who were fortunate to work alongside him,” Walton said. “His passing is a loss to CNN, to the sports world and to the fans and friends everywhere who were with him to the end of his extraordinary life.” In recent months, Charles served as an inspiration to many as he openly discussed his battle with cancer, with which he was diagnosed in August 2009. He made video diaries for his five-year-old daughter Giovanna to see in the future. “I’m a forward-looking person but also a living-in-the-moment person,” Charles recently told CNN’s Dr. Sanjay Gupta. “So I wake up everyday expecting to have a good day. It may sound trite, Sanjay, but life as you get older is about 20 percent of what happens to you and about 80 percent how you react to it.” Charles is survived by three grown children from two previous marriages. In an interview in March, he told the network his message was to “never give up on life” even though it’s imperfect and filled with huge adversities. “People won’t remember who you are or what you said. It’s really about: Are you going to be remembered as a good person?” he said. “That’s victory to me. That’s success.”
