IT project to cause network outage by Chelsea Erven Daily Lobo

by Leah Valencia and Shaun Griswold Daily Lobo n arsonist struck at the Sigma Chi House at 1850 Campus Blvd. N.E. early June 10, Albuquerque Fire Department officials said. It was the ninth fire at this location in the last two years. AFD Captain Michael Paiz said AFD is investigating to find the person responsible.

All nine fires took place in the early morning between 1 and 4 a.m., but AFD has not released the names of any suspects, Paiz said. Investigators installed cameras in the house after a fire on Nov. 11, 2008. On Nov. 17, 2009 the cameras recorded one intruder, but investigators said they were not able to identify a suspect.

In December 2009, the AFD investigators removed the cameras. “We couldn’t see. The person went in undetected,” Paiz said. “The fire was on the opposite side of the building where the cameras were installed.” The Sigma Chi House has sustained over $50,000 in damage as a result of the nine fires. Paiz said AFD is offering a $2,000 reward any information that leads to an arrest.

The Information Technologies Department will be shutting down power to various buildings throughout late June and early July as part of an effort to strengthen the UNM network. IT Chief Information Officer Gilbert Gonzales said replacing network switches that are no longer efficient will ensure continued network availability, reliability, security and speed. “These switches have been running for five or more years,” Gonzales said. “And what happens is that when they start getting old, the company will not support them, which means we can’t get anyone to maintain them anymore and they have to be replaced.” The improved network will be up and running after the IT Department refreshes and upgrades the system, said Vanessa Baca, the IT department’s communication director. The network upgrade will include replacing old network switches in some of the main campus buildings as well as implementing enhanced security features, she said. The network switch is a device that manages the sharing of multiple computers or networks on the same data connection. Baca said the upgrade is the first

The schedule of building power outages and subsequent switch replacements is as follows. All outages will occur between 7 a.m. and noon.

Marshal: Fireworks too risky in dry areas by Tricia Remark Daily Lobo

Fire scorches downtown building by Kallie Red-Horse Daily Lobo

A fire at 1301 Broadway Blvd. N.E. broke out last Wednesday evening in a building that houses three businesses: Cross Country Auto Parts, TMM Business Records Storage and Factory Motor Parts. The flames were confined to TMM’s portion of the building by Thursday, said Melissa Romero, Albuquerque Fire Department spokeswoman. “High winds were a challenge during the first night in the extinguishment of the fire,” she said. “AFD firefighters made tremendous progress through the night and into the next day. The fire was contained to the TMM Business Records Storage portion of the building and sustained most of the damage.”

TMM representatives declined to comment on the fire. Joe Morris, owner of Commercial Warehouse Co. across the street, said he was concerned for his business when he heard about the fire. “I got a call on Wednesday night from some friends, because they knew I had a business over here,” he said. “They thought I might ought to know about it. I drove down that night and saw it — it was just terrible.” The scene Wednesday night was chaotic, Morris said. “The amount of smoke that we could see from the house alone was huge,” he said. “But it was nothing compared to actually being there. It was like a nightmare. The whole top of the roof was on fire, and it is a pretty large building.” But AFD acted efficiently to stop

the blaze, Morris said. “The amount of water that was dumped on that fire was immense,” he said. “One hose was pumping 2,000 gallons a minute and then two other hoses were pumping 1,000 gallons a minute. That is 4,000 gallons a minute for almost 20 hours.” Though the fire continued to burn through Saturday, the flames were minimal and no injuries were reported, Romero said. “As of (Friday, June 25), the scene has decreased to the parking lot of the fire building,” she said. “Seven AFD units remain on scene to extinguish any flare ups or hot spots.” Determining the source of the flames is of utmost importance to the city, Romero said, and the Bu-

A ban on fireworks in certain areas of Bernalillo County went into effect Wednesday, just in time for the Fourth of July. No fireworks, including sparklers and fountains, are allowed in areas east of Tramway Boulevard to the west face of the Sandias, the East Mountains and the Rio Grande Bosque, said Chris Gober, Bernalillo County fire marshal. “Wildlife, trees and grasses — that’s starting to dry out and getting to a critical level, so we’re trying to limit the number of human-caused wildfires,” he said. Gober said there are between 30 and 40 wildfires caused by fireworks every year, which is why the county implemented the ban. He said recent dry weather increases the fire risk. “If we don’t get any really good moisture within the next couple weeks, the fire potential will probably become extreme,” he said. He said the ban was also in effect last year around July 4. Sandoval County is under a similar ban, he said. He said only “safe and sane” fireworks should be used in unrestricted areas of Bernalillo County. “Safe and sane” are fireworks

that don’t go more than 10 feet high and stay within a 6-foot-diameter circle, he said. The City of Albuquerque also issued fireworks restrictions against all “aerial and ground audible devices,” including roman candles and firecrackers. People caught with illegal fireworks will get a citation, must appear in court and can receive fines up to $500 and jail time, according to the City of Albuquerque website. Gober said he hasn’t received any complaints about the restrictions. He said community members are more concerned that fireworks are still legal in Bernalillo County. Jennifer Pavis, manager of Phantom Fireworks in Hidalgo County, said the store sells fireworks that aren’t “safe and sane” because Hidalgo has different regulations. She said Phantom still encourages all buyers to practice safe firework use. “When people come in we give them a safety flier,” she said. “After you finish with your fireworks, make sure you dump water on it to make sure it’s completely out.” Scott Scanland, a lobbyist for Tent Fireworks in Albuquerque, said the store only stocks “safe and sane,” but it’s up to the buyer to use fireworks in approved areas.

Daily Lobo Spotlight Arturo Soltero / community member

Daily Lobo: So what you brought you to UNM today? Arturo Soltero: Actually, just to kill time. I only have a part-time job, so until I get a better financial situation, I don’t have a place to hang out. I like to be out of the way where it’s peaceful. That’s mostly the reason. I have been doing this now for quite a while. I’ve been getting better. I didn’t have a job for a while. Now, I finally got a part-time job, so you know maybe I foresee this turning into a full-time job in the next couple of months or maybe more. I’ll probably disappear one of these days, hopefully. This is more or less the way I spend my time. DL: What’s your job? AS: I work at KFC. They don’t have a cooking position, which is what I applied for because I had worked in another KFC before. I am like their maintenance guy. I clean up the outside, the lobby. I scrub the inside, clean windows for a total of 12 hours a week, so it’s not much. That’s all they have right now. DL: But it’s better than doing nothing, right? AS: Sure. I can at least see the possibility that it could develop into. He said it could open. It could develop according to how they liked my job. Also, you know, I’ll be looking in other places for another part-time job or a full-time job. DL: Is the hope to get a place soon, then? AS: For me, it’s not that important getting a place. I had a full-time job for maybe as long as three months, and I could have gotten into an apartment, but I continued to live on the outside. That’s not that important. When I started camping out — I’ve been doing it for three and half years now — I thought it would be a lot different, a lot harder, but it’s not. What’s hard about is not having a job is not having money. Otherwise, it’s not a big problem. DL: So what are you reading right now? AS: It’s a little biology, biochemistry. I actually have a biology degree from Western in Silver City. So I am interested in biology. I read novels also, plays. I read quite a bit. That’s how I pass my time. I also play a lot of Solitaire by myself with cards. That’s how I keep myself entertained and busy. I go the Frontier and watch TV a bit. I follow the sports. DL: Have you been watching the World Cup? AS: Yeah, that’s what I did this morning. Mexico. I didn’t watch the whole thing once it got to 3-0. And I watched the USA, too, when they lost. I am not feeling too bad about my situation now. Vanessa Sanchez / Daily Lobo

reau of Alcohol, Tobacco Firearms and Explosives has been recruited to assist. “The fire cause and origin is under investigation by AFD and ATF,� she said. “ATF National Response Team has been called in to assist with the investigation due to the large building and heavy fire load.

The investigation is expected to last up to a week.� Although flames have been extinguished, crews were still actively cleaning up the remnants of the blaze the morning of Sunday, June 27. “I’m just glad the wind wasn’t blowing our way,� Morris said.

While the network switch upgrade will make the network more reliable for users, it will also cause network outages, according to the IT Department’s website. The department will complete the project in sections to cause the least amount of inconvenience to the UNM community.

Steve Amstrup / AP Photo In this undated file photo released by the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service, a polar bear resting with her cubs is seen on the pack ice in the Beaufort Sea in northern Alaska. Polar bear policy in America can be summed up succinctly: The iconic bears are threatened with extinction, and so far nothing much is being done.

Future bleak for endangered polar bears by Dan Joling

Associated Press ANCHORAGE, Alaska— Polar bear policy in America can be summed up succinctly: The iconic bears are threatened with extinction, and so far nothing much is being done. Two years after they were listed under the Endangered Species Act, the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service has taken no major action in response to their principal threat, the loss of sea ice habitat due to climate change. Federal officials have declared that the Endangered Species Act will not be used in the attempt to regulate greenhouse gases, which contribute to global warming and melting ice in the Arctic Ocean. That leaves Rosa Meehan, the Fish and Wildlife Service marine mammals manager in Alaska, with few tools to protect the great bears of the Arctic. She hangs on to the hope that the scientists are wrong about the bears’ future. “Our crystal ball is not perfect,” Meehan said last week. She spoke between public hearings on whether the federal government should designate critical habitat for polar bears. Her agency has proposed desig-


nating 187,166 square miles of U.S. territory — 95 percent of it in the Beaufort and Chukchi seas — as polar bear critical habitat. And that has drawn objections from the energy industry and other business interests. It would mean, for example, that before granting permits for offshore drilling, federal agencies would have to review whether the action would adversely modify the habitat. More than one person has asked Meehan whether designating critical habitat — which, after all, would also be subject to warming — wouldn’t be like rearranging the deck chairs on the Titanic. “I’m one of the people who really hopes, you know, hopefully we didn’t get this completely right,” she said. “Maybe bears will be able to hang on. And if they are, then we want to make sure we give them as easy a chance as possible to hang on in a marginal environment. And so that means addressing all the other potential effects on bears.” Interior Department Secretary Dirk Kempthorne, under threat of lawsuits, reluctantly listed polar bears in May 2008. He said the alarming loss in recent decades

The announcement came eight months after summer sea ice levels melted to their lowest recorded level ever: 1.65 million square miles, or nearly 40 percent below average since satellite monitoring began in 1979. Along with the listing, Kempthorne created a “special rule” stating that the Endangered Species Act would not be used to set climate policy or limit greenhouse gas emissions.

Mexico models U.S. border policy by Andrew Beale

They come by the thousands from Guatemala, Nicaragua, Honduras and El Salvador, fleeing poverty, hunger, violence and oppression. They come sin papeles, indocumentado, ilegal, dozens of people at a time on top of a train car. And when the train approaches a border checkpoint, they jump off the moving train. Later, having navigated the checkpoint on foot, they jump back on the moving train. And sometimes they fall while doing this. That’s how Marcos and Johnathan lost their legs. Marcos, 19, is Guatemalan. Johnathan, 20, is from Honduras. They’re both staying at Albergue Jesús de Buen Pastor, “Jesus’ Shelter of the Good Shepherd,” in Tapachula, Chiapas. The albergue takes care of migrants who are sick or have been assaulted, raped or injured. There’s a man whose jaw is broken in three places, a guy with a broken leg, an American alcoholic who drunkenly fell and broke his hip, the aforementioned one-legged youths and a guy who got shot in the arm. He showed me his X-ray. The bullet shattered inside his arm and is still there in more than 20 pieces. Mexican immigration officials sent most people who arrive at the albergue. Mexico has a very similar immigration policy to our own. Basically, if you’re poor, good luck getting in. That’s why so many illegal immigrants come to Mexico and also why so many illegal immigrants come to the United States — the very people that most need to be let in. The people

who are starving in their own countries are denied visas. Of course, if your choice is between starving to death and crossing a border illegally, you don’t really have a choice at all. So they come by train, and if they don’t get hurt on the train, they face more danger immediately upon reaching a new country. Their illegal status makes it difficult to find work or stable living conditions, which puts them at the mercy of shady employers, sketchy landlords and street criminals. If they’re lucky, they can make it to Mexico City or the U.S. border and find a job good enough to pay for their living arrangements and maybe send money home to their families, too. If they’re unlucky, they can end up lying in bed with a broken neck at Albergue Jésus de Buen Pastor. Even when someone manages to find work as an undocumented immigrant, it’s not likely to be the kind of work that anyone would want to do for a living. One guy who came to the albergue had burns on his feet so bad he couldn’t walk. He got these from lime splashing on his feet during construction work in Mexico City. He was working construction with no shoes on. Now think about that for a second. What have you ever, ever needed so badly that you would cross a border illegally, riding on top of a train for several days and nights, for the opportunity to work construction with no shoes on for perhaps $5 a day? The answer for almost everyone who reads this is: nothing. I have never in my life been that hungry, that desperate. I would

never jump off a moving train, crawl through the jungle to avoid Mexican military sentries armed with machine guns and then jump back on a moving train. As Americans, we just wouldn’t do that, because we never have to. For anyone who thinks migrants come to our country because they’re too lazy to work hard in their own country, think about working 12, 14, even 16-hour days in jobs with no worker protection whatsoever. Think about hiking through the desert around Juárez for up to five days without water. Think about sleeping on the streets of Mexico City, praying that you don’t get robbed, because your family in Belize needs that money in your pocket. So besides the fact that our immigration policies (and those of Mexico) are tantamount to maiming and murdering thousands of innocent people, there’s another reason we should just let them come over: They work harder than we do. That kid Marcos, from the albergue? The 19-year-old with one leg? I saw him literally hopping around holding a broom to clean the floor of the shelter. Contrast this with the behavior of the American guy at the albergue, an old-school redneck from Tennessee, as heartland American as you can get. While Marcos was struggling to work the broom, the dustpan and his crutches at the same time, American Jim was lying in bed complaining about the mosquitoes. Sure, he’s in a wheelchair, but it would have been a lot easier for him to do some dishes than it was for Marcos to sweep up the whole dormitory he was staying in.

Avilucea’s ‘sophomoric’ logic will leave him jobless Editor, I read with mild interest Isaac Avilucea’s rambling article about cultural imperialism, poor journalism, immigration and soccer that linked criticism of FIFA’s Luddite ways with American ethnocentrism. Unfortunately Avilucea has studied just enough history to be dangerous. The audacity to invoke the gullibility of the common U.S. citizen to sup-

port the military in killing foreigners as being equal to sports fans arguing to use modern technology to reduce human error is at best sophomoric. Although given Avilucea’s ability, or inability, to structure an argument, that would be a compliment. Using Avilucea’s logic, the world would have been better off if Western sterilization practices were not spread to the rest of the world, since they might offend local brujos and witch doctors. Since the printing of Avilucea’s article, there have been multiple examples of how poor FIFA’s decision not to use modern technology in the officiating of soccer has been.

At this point, I would lament the decline of professional journalism in the U.S., young people’s lack of education and Avilucea’s poor job prospects in the future. Defending the indefensible in print is an affront to journalistic integrity and generally makes one look like an idiot. However, such tactics today improve your ratings on conservative news “services,” which provide a welcoming home for journalists of Avilucea’s intelligence level. Erik Peterson UNM alumnus

CITADEL — 243.2494


by Eva Dameron Daily Lobo

Photography junior Lily Robles painted a mural on her bedroom wall from the photo of a naked John Lennon wrapped around a clothed Yoko Ono. But she gave Ono tusks and a tail. “She’s the walrus,â€? Robles said. Her bedroom is spilling over with drawings, photos, paintings and art supplies, and she plans on making the adjacent room in her home into a darkroom as soon as she installs the ventilation system. She’s also Albuquerque’s up-and-coming wedding photographer. Daily Lobo: (Looking into a closet) These dresses are pretty cool. Are these costumes for photo shoots? Lily Robles: Yeah, I’ve done some with photo shoots, like this awesome rainbow dress. I really want to do an underwater one. ‌ I wanted to get the girls in prom dresses and just do ruined prom night under water. So I kept all my dresses from high school, just in case. (Daily Lobo photographer starts changing her lenses.) LR: I know, right? Changing the lenses? I had a wedding and it was utter chaos doing it by myself. It was the last one I did. One of the batteries died and then the other one the card was full, and it was the youmay-now-kiss-the-bride part and I was like, “Oh crap!â€? DL: You mean you missed the bride kissing? LR: No, I didn’t. I switched it out just in time. They were saying the final prayer before the kiss and the wedding party was like, “Are you ok?â€? and I was like, “No, I’m freaking out!â€? And I’m over here scattered with all my stuff in the middle of the aisle. I caught it just in time. DL: So you do stuff for your friends or people commission you? LR: People actually commission me. This last one was for my friend, but she had referred me to a lot of different people, so I’ve already done seven, which is super exciting ‘cause I’m only 21. DL: Yeah, it’s good to be accomplished when you’re young because then everyone thinks that you’re some sort of messiah of doing. LR: It’s been a lot of fun. I’ve met some really crazy clients. DL: So were any of these seven weddings particularly weird, like

the bride wore a bee costume or something? LR: No, I think the only weird one was the backyard one that I did. It was all in Spanish, and I was like, “I don’t understand anything!� I got two words out of that. Amor. That means love. I hope to do a weird wedding some day. That would be fun. DL: OK. So how long have you been painting for? LR: In college I was like, “I really want to take a painting class.� I had never used oils and so now I’m like I can never go back to acrylic. Once you use oils, you can’t go back because you can actually blend with them. DL: So do you have any exhibitions coming up? LR: I’m still kind of working on projects, but I figured by next spring I’m going to need to do an exhibition ’cause this is just stocking up everywhere. It’s just ridiculous. It’s piling up everywhere. DL: So what’s your dream art job; what do you want to do with all this when you get out of college? LR: I plan on opening up my own studio, basically like a wedding business. I’m going to go to culinary school as soon as I finish my degree in photography, and so I want to have a wedding business where I can do the catering, the cake, the pictures and just be like one-stopbam-awesome place. I want to minor in business as well. One of my friends is a wedding planner, so I was like, “Dude, we’re gonna open our own business, and it’s going to be awesome� because everyone’s always getting married, and it’ll be pretty solid for a really long time. I think it would be a lot of fun. DL: I hear that if you’re photographing a wedding, you’re supposed to remember to take a picture of the bride’s shoes because she always puts lots of thought into the shoes that she wears, but people don’t always think of that. So, if you take a picture of her shoes, the bride will be happy. LR: Interesting. I’ve always taken pictures of shoes, but I’ve never known that. I’ve taken some of just the bride and groom’s feet together because there was one couple where she wore Converse instead of heels. It was just this one picture where she’s lifting her dress and I’m like, “That’s so cute!� I’d probably wear Converse to my wedding.

DL: Do you have a favorite photographer? LR: Sally Mann. DL: She’s awesome. She drags around that old-school glass — LR: Yeah, that’s what I love about her! She stays old school even with all this crazy digital stuff. She’s just like, “Mmm, No. 8x10. I’m going to drag this around everywhere I go.�

UNM is turning the page and opening up Bless Me, Ultima to campus newcomers. The Lobo Reading Experience is back for the second time, featuring Rudolfo Anaya’s book, Bless Me, Ultima. Wynn Goering, vice provost of Academic Affairs, leads the reading program. Goering said Anaya’s book will be highlighted at a national conference in April 2011. The UNM Fine Arts and Arts and Sciences Colleges will put on the conference in conjunction with the National Hispanic Cultural Center, Goering said. “The book is written by a UNM professor, and is one of the most highly regarded works of its kind,” he said. Besides the featured conference, Goering said the book is accessible to and engaging for people of different backgrounds. “It is a book that every New Mexican should read,” Goering said. “It will give students a better sense of New Mexico’s distinctive cultural and literary

traditions. The book follows the tradition of what it means to be a New Mexican.” In the past, the Lobo Reading Experience featured, Antonio’s Gun and Delfino’s Dream: True Tales of Mexican Migration. This year will be different than last year because the book is required reading in certain American studies, anthropology, linguistics and some fine arts courses’ curriculums. In addition to having the novel in the curriculum, there will be many events planned year round in tribute to Anaya’s book. Goering said there will be a stage production of Bless Me, Ultima at the National Hispanic Cultural Center in November, an evening with the author and other promotional events. “We will also have a photographic exhibit based on the book that features (UNM professor) Miguel Gandert’s photographs and text by Professor Enrique Lamadrid,” Goering said. Lamadrid, a professor at UNM, said he knows Anaya

Rudolfo A. Anaya’s Bless Me, Ultima is a fantastic choice for this fall’s Lobo Reading Experience. No matter a student’s background, the novel has a lot to offer. For the new student trying to decide what to make with his/her life, it provides encouragement. For the older student struggling for inspiration, the novel provides the courage to stand by your decisions and carve your own destiny. And for a newcomer to New Mexico, like myself, the novel is an exciting introductory course to New Mexican tradition and culture. Set in the 1940s, the novel tells the story of Antonio Juan Márez y Luna, a 7-year-old boy who is torn between fulfilling his father’s and mother’s separate and ambitious dreams of what he is to become. As he begins to lose his innocence and his family begins to disintegrate, doubts begin to emerge about his Catholic upbringing and his role in life. Fortunately, he is blessed with the guidance of Ultima, an old curandera, who, according to Antonio’s prophetic dreams,

knows his true destiny. Anaya’s prose is beautifully elegiac as he describes our connection to the land, as if New Mexico wasn’t the Land of Enchantment until Anaya told us how to see it. And his construction is perfect: There is not a single weak sentence in the book. Anaya’s treatment of the age-old struggle between good and evil masterfully combines past, present and future through allegorical stories and prophetic dreams. Although the novel tells the story of the coming of age of a 7-year-old boy, the story is much bigger than that. Antonio deals with forces much larger and older than himself. In Anaya’s world, the children are accountable for the sins of their parents. Sin weighs heavily on the land, but the sins go beyond sins against man or God. Losing touch with the land is as serious a sin as blasphemy. The novel feels like an older coming-of-age story than it really is. Anaya seems to be conscious of his children who speak prophetically beyond their age. There are two groups of children, really. The children with only nick-

Recreation Services offers students cheap thrills by Jenny Gignac Daily Lobo

If you can’t afford a vacation, UNM Recreation Services might have a solution for you. One of the many resources and services the department offers is the UNM Getaway Adventure program, which offers opportunities for students to tap into a series of outdoor recreation year-round. With numerous adventures planned, such as wildflower hiking, fly fishing in the Rio Costilla and full-moon camping at White Sands, Director Laura Montoya prepared a


full schedule of outdoor getaways for adventurous students. Prices range depending on gas costs, park fees, camping fees, etc. The Getaway Adventures Program is nonprofit and offers trips at the lowest cost possible. On many trips students are offered additional discounts. Some of the more popular trips are the white-water rafting getaways, and anything planned around a full moon, such as the upcoming White Sands full-moon camping trip. “Our full-moon snowshoe hikes are always a sell-out when there is snow,” Montoya said.

The equipment at Johnson Center, top-notch bicycles, camping gear and other outdoor equipment can be used for the outdoor getaway adventures, Montoya said. Having received a degree in outdoor recreation from UNM, Montoya has been leading groups all over New Mexico since 1980. The program was initiated with ASUNM appropriated funds in 1980, and was called the Student Travel Center. ASUNM gave funds for the program for the first three years. “I was a UNM student at the time and needed some experience for some of my classes in organizing

and running trips,” Montoya said. “The Getaway Adventure Program was in existence then but on a very small scale and only offered a trip or two per semester.” Upon graduation, Montoya went to work for a local travel agency for five years and gained experience in coordinating local and international trips. Montoya said this July will make 21 years since she became director, and 31 years since she began leading trips. UNM Getaway Adventures offers trips year round and follows the academic calendar. It offers an average of 15 different trips and clinics

every semester, Montoya said. Just because you are not taking summer classes, doesn’t mean you can’t participate in the programs and clinics offered by the UNM Recreational Services Department and Getaway Adventures program, Montoya said. “Taking advantage of the getaways is like taking an inexpensive mini vacation,” Montoya said. “Or you can rent equipment for the Outdoor Shop and create your own outdoor adventure.”

deep questions raised in the novel. Life has been too hard on them to allow them to be children. Any person, and students especially, will relate well to Antonio’s struggle with fate and choice. Anaya is not afraid to explore the questions

and doubts that plague all of us as we, like Antonio, strive to etch our own destinies into the stone. Anaya takes us to the mountain peak, offering us perspective but not direction. He presents a world with dozens of gods, encouraging us to decide for

ourselves which god, if any, we will serve. No matter the choice, though, the most important thing is that we choose to be good, for “the smallest bit of good can stand against all the powers of evil in the world and it will emerge triumphant.”

Bless Me, Ultima is simply too good to miss out on. It is more than a novel — it is an experience, a baptizing fire that urges its readers to fulfill their destinies and live in peace with each other and the world.

great thing about the Lobo Reading Experience is that they actually bring in the authors. Students can ask questions and get to know them on a different level.” The book is rooted in New Mex-

ico folklore and history, Lamadrid said. The book is available in the UNM Bookstore for $5.95. “I remember when the book was first presented by Anaya in 1970,” Lamadrid said. “It’s amazing that

so many years later students can share the same experience.” Goering’s main goal is to make students better readers and to allow for more engagement with the campus. Many students will be

reading the novel at the same time. “This gives students a sense of academic community on campus. The program is something that gives a commonality across campus,” Goering said.

Blistering hill runs to build endurance, unity by Shawn Abeita Daily Lobo

It wasn’t exactly Death Valley, but the UNM men’s basketball team jaunted through the dunes of doom on June 26. Led by strength and conditioning coach Mark Paulsen, the Lobos spent Saturday scaling the hills near the Hard Rock Hotel Albuquerque and taking part in a voluntary workout. Paulsen, who is originally from northern Minnesota and has been working with Lobo athletics for more than 20 years, said the workouts are strenuous for a reason. “It’s a layering effect,” Paulsen said. “We’re not out here today to try and set the world on fire, but just chip away. If we can put in really good workouts in June and July, the foundation is set.” Lobo guard Phillip McDonald said Saturday’s workout was the toughest he’s been through. “He’s really pushing us mentally and physically, and it transitions over to the court, too,” McDonald

said, trying to catch his breath. The hill runs will now become a part of the Lobos’ summer workout regimen, Paulsen said, because the hills provide the team an opportunity to work on agility and endurance. He had the team run 20-yard shuttles at the bottom of the hill and had the players run, walk and climb to the top of the roughly half-milelong hill twice. “You can’t appreciate it as much when your players conquer the hill, unless you have accomplished it yourself,” Paulsen said. UCLA transfer Drew Gordon said the Californian hills aren’t quite as steep as the ones he ascended on Saturday. “It’s a lovely way to wake up on a Saturday morning,” Gordon said. “It shows that our team is together. Everybody acts as one unit, and that’s the big thing about the hills — you see who is family and who is not.” Paulsen said he was particularly pleased with the freshmen’s work ethic. “I’ve been around a lot of freshmen in my lifetime, and these guys

The workouts, led by strength and condition coach Mark Paulsen, will be a part of UNM’s summer training regimen. have got the talent, work ethic and the intelligence,” Paulsen said. “That is impressive to me, so I think the future looks pretty bright for Lobo basketball.” More than anything, Paulsen said, being tough on, not only the

freshmen, but the entire team, prepares players to fill high-pressure roles that have been vacated by former players. “You lose a player like Roman (Martinez) and what he brought to the table, you better toughen up

collectively,” Paulsen said. “We’re not terribly fit right now, nor should we be. It’s early in the year right now. Today, I found out we have to toughen up and we’re OK. There were no tragedies out here today, but we found out where we need to go.”


Buck the haters; Hobson to disprove doubters by Isaac Avilucea Daily Lobo

Many detractors refuse to reconcile simple truths and are instead content concocting fantastical reasons for relatively explainable phenomenon. Those same people, the ones with hyperactive imaginations, can’t fathom that maybe — just maybe — this has been “a childhood dream,” for Darington Hobson, “a place” he wanted to be from “day one.” That his decision to leave the UNM men’s basketball team early was fueled by no ulterior motives — chiefly, that he was on the outs with head basketball coach Steve Alford. The most compelling, and least true, Hobson bit of gossip churning through the rumor mill — used to rationalize Hobson’s decision to leave school early in the wake of being the Milwaukee Bucks secondround selection — is that Hobson and Alford had philosophical differences. Not that he has to dignify falsities, but Hobson forcefully rebuked the notion. “Coach Alford is my best friend. That’s like my father,” Hobson said. “Why would we have philosophy differences?

know what they’re talking about,” Hobson said. Let it be known: In Hobson’s eyes, it wasn’t a hasty, splitsecond decision that cost him first-round money. Rather the opposite. “There’s a lot of people saying I made a mistake and should have went back to school, and that’s why I was the 37th pick,” Hobson said. “That’s not why. I went 37th pick because a lot of GMs (General Managers) made a mistake.” Forgive Hobson’s candor. This is not embellished bravado. For the duration of his basketball career, Hobson has been intent upon disproving the naysayers. And now before him — yet again — is an opportunity to do prove his worth — this time to NBA GMs and executives who shied away from drafting him in the first round. Shrewdly, though, Hobson hedges about qualifying it as motivation. “I’m not going to worry about that,” he said. “I’m with the team that wanted me.” Best believe, though, Hobson takes note of it and files it in his mental rolodex, just like all the other times his talent was questioned. No, Hobson rarely forgets. Much of Hobson’s career has been forged on the suspenseful pillars of doubt, an alluring if-ever proposition: If ever Hobson gets out of high school. If ever he matures. If ever he gets to a Division I school.

Clinic teaches women football fundamentals by Tim Mousseau Daily Lobo

More than 100 women hit the gridiron June 26 as part of the Lobo women’s football clinic, which taught participants football drills and rules. The women’s football clinic is one of the older camps UNM offers, created by former head coach Rocky Long to give women a chance to learn the game’s fundamentals. Throughout its 16-year history, the camp has grown in popularity and this year hosted more than 100 female participants. This year, UNM quarterback coach David Reaves led the women’s clinic. The coach said his goal was to give back to those who participated and to the community. “The women are going to get a chance to learn a lot about football,” Reaves said. “The X’s and O’s of the game, the fundamentals of the game. (They) get to watch some video, so when they’re out there watching the Lobos play next year they know what we are trying to get done.” For a $40 entrance fee, participants spent all day June 26 with players, members of the coaching staff and their wives. The clinic lasted six hours and included programs designed to educate and give women football experience. A portion of the $40 entrance fee benefits the UNM “Send-AKid” program, which helps purchase season tickets for underprivileged youth in Albuquerque.

Jessica Lucero, a camp participant, said Reaves and the University helped her better understand football. ”I am looking to see what I can know more about the game as a spectator,” she said. “I’m interested to see some strategy that they’re going to bring to the season. I just want to see them do (well) and continue to improve the program.” The clinic has offered stronger lesson plans throughout its history, Reaves said, and this year women went through a number of different drills and activities. Highlights included tours of the facilities, including the athletic training room, the weight room and locker rooms. Campers also went through a football 101 class. The last few hours of the day were committed to an on-field clinic where they used practice equipment and learned drills. UNM defensive end Jaymar Latchison has worked the camps since his freshman year, and he said he is compelled to give back to community members who support the Lobos through thick and thin. “Working with the people who come, they are regulars,” Latchison said. “They love it. I have seen them every year. They know me and I know them. I think it’s a great program that really is just a matter of giving back to the community. Doing as much service as we can, we put our face out there to show people we are more than just football players.”

Vanessa Sanchez / Daily Lobo Robin Miramontes runs through a drill at the women’s clinic on Saturday. The camp was put on by the UNM football program and run by quarterbacks coach David Reaves.

Now this one: If ever he makes the Bucks’ roster. “Everybody that congratulates me now, they were the ones that were doubting me back then,” Hobson said. He quieted few of those critics by being taken in the second round. Surprisingly, in the draft’s aftermath, Hobson wasn’t really given a legitimate reason as to why his stock plummeted after being projected as a late first-round to early secondround selection. “A lot of the reasons we got was because, all of a sudden, now it was because I played in the Mountain West,” Hobson said. “Nobody got to really see me.” If that’s the case, then the truth is

talent evaluators turned a blind eye to Hobson. After all, he was the MWC Player of the Year and led the Lobos to a long-awaited NCAA tournament berth, all while becoming the first Lobo to lead his team in scoring, assists and rebounds. With absolute certainty, Hobson can say that had he accomplished the same feats in a more-respected conference, he would have been a first-round selection. “I can honestly sit here and say, ‘yes,’ definitely,” Hobson said. “A lot of people said if I was in a bigger conference … then I could’ve gone first round.” Hindsight being what it is, the question lingers: Would it, as many say, have mattered if Hobson would

have returned for his senior season? Hobson doesn’t think so. “I think if I would have come back, I would have dropped even more,” he said. “I’m already 22, about to be 23, which makes me an older senior than most. I had a very good season. Having a season like we had this year is pretty tough to duplicate.” Yet again, Hobson finds himself in a familiar position. To make his decision to leap to the NBA worthwhile, he must make the Bucks’ roster, in order to guarantee a contract. If only because everyone else does, Hobson has no doubts. “At the end of the day, when the ball goes up in the air, you’re still going to have to play against me,” Hobson said.
