Police raid office; find Garcia’s sex toys Chelsea Erven

news@dailylobo.com

Dylan Smith / Daily Lobo Antoine Corralez stands outside his bullet-riddled home at Gold Avenue and Yale Boulevard on Sunday morning. On Saturday night, a man reportedly entered Corralez’s home during a party, and after being asked to leave, engaged in a physical altercation with another guest. The suspect reportedly left, returned several minutes later with a handgun and opened fire on the house before speeding away. Corralez said that the police have the suspect in custody.

Former UNM president F. Chris Garcia’s office at the Social Sciences Building wasn’t just filled with academic documents. Albuquerque Police raided the office June 23 and found a briefcase and cabinet full of sex toys, 21 pornographic videos and nine sex books, according to an unsealed search warrant obtained by the Albuquerque Journal. Detectives confiscated a computer and other electronic storage devices, along with notebooks containing information related to prostitution and the alleged online prostitution ring, “Southwest Companions.” Detectives said Garcia was on the website while at UNM. “It should be noted that throughout all times of the day and

night, my investigation shows that Mr. Garcia accesses (Southwest Companions’) website,” the warrant said. “These hours of access are consistent with times he is working at the University of New Mexico as well as at his residence.” Garcia’s home was also searched, and three more computers and his cell phone were confiscated. Garcia served as a UNM president, provost, dean and professor, and though he is now retired, his position as political science professor emeritus allows him access to the University campus. David Serna, Garcia’s attorney, told the Journal that UNM President David Schmidly restricted Garcia’s access to his University office pending the outcome of the investigation. Garcia faces felony charges of promoting prostitution, conspiracy and evidence tampering.

Committee seeks criteria for new president by Hunter Riley hriley@unm.edu

The search to find UNM’s next president is on, and the regents, charged with the final decision, are working to figure out what students, staff and faculty want. President David Schmidly will vacate the post in May 2012, and a search committee, chaired by Regent President Jack Fortner, has been tasked with getting UNM constituents’ input on the new president.

“Regent Fortner asked us to … extract the essence of what we can derive from the University community and recommend that as criteria for the search committee,” Regent Brad Hosmer said. The committee consists of three UNM regents, including Hosmer, and Faculty Senate President-elect Tim Ross, Staff Council President Mary Clark and the provost. The ASUNM and GPSA presidents are also committee advisers and will represent student voices in the

search. Hosmer said the first meeting will take place July 12 on UNM’s north campus, and the second meeting will be held after classes have reconvened in the fall. He said the attendees can ask questions, but should also expect to be questioned by the regents. “The real questions are the questions that we have, and those are, ‘What do you think will be the right characteristics of the next president of UNM and why?’” he said. “We may ask, ‘What do you

Fire concerns lead to state fireworks bans by Angela K. Brown The Associated Press

FORT WORTH, Texas — From Arizona to Florida, there will be fewer ‘oohs’ and ‘aahs’ at the rockets’ red glare this Fourth of July: Many cities and counties across the nation’s drought-stricken southern tier are banning fireworks because of the risk of wildfires. New Mexico’s governor prohibited fireworks on state and private wildlands and pleaded with people not to buy or set off pyrotechnics. Authorities in the lone Georgia county that banned sales shut down roadside vendors and made sure fireworks were off store shelves. Dozens of Texas cities have canceled shows, from large events in Austin and San Antonio to small-town celebrations where folks usually sit on blankets at parks and lakes. “People are, of course, disappointed, but they know what could happen if the fireworks show did go on,” said Sherri Davis, a city clerk in Saint Jo, a 1,000-resident farming community

about 70 miles north of Fort Worth. Parts of nearly a dozen states, from the Southeast to the West, are in a severe drought. Wildfires have charred thousands of square miles in recent months. Some parts of the affected regions already ban the sale or use of fireworks — or at least the types that explode or scatter fireballs, such as bottle rockets and Roman candles. This Independence Day, more expansive restrictions are in place, with many areas outlawing even sparklers. While there have been a few protests and at least one court challenge, many people seem to have no problem with the precautions. In Texas, most counties are under burn bans, which prohibit some or all fireworks sales. Most Texas cities prohibit fireworks year-round, but counties usually allow people to sell and use them twice a year, for about two weeks before Independence Day and New Year’s Day.

Once the criteria have been collected, Hosmer said, the committee will start the search.

Daily Lobo: What was the main reason you sought the position of Faculty Senate president? Timothy Ross: Well, I’d been in the Senate long enough, and then I’d been in the Operations Committee long enough that I thought I could help continue the process of shared governance. I ran for it thinking, “I’m getting near the end of my academic career and this would be a time when I could use some of my knowledge to help forge ahead on shared governance …” DL: What are some of the main obstacles facing UNM faculty? TR: Well, it’s always the same thing — too much to do. It all takes a lot of time, so to ask them to also sit on a Faculty Senate Committee or to sit on our Operations Committee, which is a lot of work — that’s the biggest hurdle, people’s time. And one of the things that I want to help complete … is to get the Senate reorganized in a way that will make us more efficient in terms of shared governance, and that’s a big job to do that. DL: Are there ways the UNM administration can help the faculty in shared governance? TR: I’m requesting the administration help with providing more funding to the Faculty Senate, in terms of our annual budget. The current interim provost seems interested in helping us that way, if he can, to provide us with a little more monetary support so that we can pass that along to our committees and councils to support them. DL: What are some of the Faculty Senate’s goals? TR: We’re going to be heavily involved in the search for a new president. We’re going to be heavily involved in the restructuring of the Faculty Senate … There’s a big effort on campus to maybe get our Honors Program into a college of its own. That’s something the provost and the Senate will work closely together on — to see if we can bring that to a

reality this academic year … DL: The International Program has seen a lot of budget cuts the last several years. Is this an issue that concerns the faculty? TR: Yes. We want that not to be on the edge, but to actually be a very important part of this campus environment. I mean, we’re in a state that enjoys a lot of benefits that are associated with different cultures, so we think that should be a major focus on this campus. DL: Is there enough communication between the faculty, students and administration? TR: For us, it’s not a matter of communication — it’s a matter of confusion. There’s too much confusion. If a student wants to, say, spend a semester in Brazil, there’s like two or three or four different places they can go to start. There should be one place to start and then some sort of focus developed to get that student working on that goal right away. DL: What are some hot-button issues for the faculty? TR: Our Board of Regents claims that we’re really not following state law in terms of per-diem allocations when we travel … We asked the Board of Regents to table the discussion on this at their June meeting and table it until August, so we’ve got a chance to look at it. … Retirement issues are hot-button issues. The state has resected, over the last two years, 3.25 percent of our take-home pay to pay for part of their allocation into our state retirement system … More and more states are taking more and more money from their own employees to pay for their retirement programs, and maybe that has to be done. The concern here is that they’re doing it with employees who started working here years ago, and we all started under, sort of, an implied contract.

Amid the bone-dry brush along Interstate 10 near the U.S.-Mexico border, dozens of roadside booths were shuttered last week in El Paso County, which banned all fireworks. But in the adjacent city of Socorro, vendors were still allowed to sell them. “I think this year sales are going to be better because people want what they can’t have,” said Michelle Saucedo, who runs a fireworks business in a Socorro warehouse. But she said she has been urging customers to be more careful this year. Blazes have scorched more than 5,100 square miles in Texas and have been blamed in four deaths — three of them firefighters — since the wildfire season began in November. El Paso’s Puerta Del Cielo Church expected to raise $2,000 to $3,000 in its annual fireworks fundraiser for a youth retreat. Because of the El Paso County ban, the church now must rely

on donations. “Our other option would be to sell water on the streets, and that would raise $200 in a two-week span, but now we cannot even do that because the city just banned that,” said Tania Lemmon, the youth group’s leader. The city cracked down on street sales of bottled water because some vendors forged permits or had no permits at all. Florida has many fireworks stores and stands. Technically, the only legal fireworks in Florida are those that emit small sparks and smoke, but there is a big loophole: Customers can buy rockets and explosives if they say the items will be used for such purposes as scaring birds and other pests away from farms or fish hatcheries. Police make almost no attempt to enforce this law. Florida wildfires this year have blackened more than 390 square miles, and two firefighters were killed

recently, so nearly half of the state’s counties are now banning fireworks. On the Atlantic coast, Flagler County scrapped its fireworks show. The San Antonio Fire Department canceled all of the city’s fireworks displays, including popular shows at Sea World and Six Flags Fiesta Texas, a move tourism officials said would cost the city revenue. For nearly 40 years, Pat Hammond and her husband have organized a Fourth of July parade in their San Antonio neighborhood. Normally, she and other folks settle in and watch the city’s fireworks. She said she will miss the spectacle this year but is glad the city is erring on the side of caution. “You might think I’m easily entertained, but if it’s a beautiful night and there’s stars, that’s a greater thing than fireworks,” Hammond said. “I won’t sit around sobbing without fireworks.”

Fire damages UNM facilities by Charlie Shipley pshipley@unm.edu

The largest wildfire in New Mexico history continues to burn, forcing evacuations and destroying homes and property, including a UNM facility. A UNM anthropology facility near Cochiti Lake was damaged when the Las Conchas fire burned around the perimeter of Dixon’s Apple Orchard on June 26. The facility sustained severe damages, UNM Physical Plant Director Mary Vosevich said. She also said the cost of the damage is not yet known, but fall classes held at the facility wouldn’t be cancelled. “Two other buildings suffered very minor damage and another had damage that we will assess soon,” she said. The Las Conchas fire started June 26 near Los Alamos and forced the town’s 12,000 residents to evacuate. The fire became the highest-priority fire in the nation as fears rose about risk to the nuclear material stored at Los Alamos National Labs. Los Alamos Fire Chief Doug Tucker said with the exception of a spot fire that was quickly extinguished, there has been no damage to the labs. The fire has burned nearly 105,000 acres as of this week and is New Mexico’s largest recorded wildfire. New Mexico Gov. Susana Martinez said the cost of fighting the blaze totals $2.8 million and is expected to rise, but she noted that the Las Conchas fire is not the only fire threatening the state.

Associated Press A UNM anthropology building near Cochiti Lake was severely damaged by the Las Conchas fire, UNM Physical Plant Director Mary Vosevich said. She said the cost of the damage has not yet been determined. “While many people are focused on the Las Conchas fire right now, it is important to remember that we also have several other active fires that are forcing evacuations,” she said. “We remain engaged and active on every fire to ensure that lives and property are protected across the state.” The Little Lewis fire near Cloudcroft forced the evacuations of communities in the Sacramento Mountains this week. Another wildfire, the Donaldson Complex fire near Ruidoso, has burned 90,000 acres and was caused by lightning. UNM emergency responders have been deployed to help in the firefighting effort. The University Emergency Medical Services traveled to Los Alamos shortly after the Las Conchas fire started, and the

doctors will rotate in 12-hour shifts helping those fighting the fire. Public areas such as the Bosque, Albuquerque Open Space areas and Cibola National Forest were closed last week to guard against fire danger. Trespassers in the Bosque could face up to a $500 fine and 90 days in jail. Bernalillo County Fire Marshal Chris Gober said that areas like the Bosque, the Far Northeast Heights and the East Mountains are high priorities for the department, where the slightest spark could spell disaster. “This year, we’re extremely dry,” Gober said. “We haven’t been this dry in perhaps several decades. We’ve been lucky so far. There have been several fires throughout the month, but all of them have been small.”

and was not required to provide proof of his references. Patel received a multiyear contract $30,000 higher than his predecessor, according to faculty. Patel’s salary is $152,000. Regent Jamie Koch said the hiring process was legitimate and followed state and federal hiring law, the Journal reported. “This is a regents’ hire,” Koch told the Albuquerque Journal. “… We should be able to interview the individuals we want.” Regent Don Chalmers said the claims should be considered. In a June 21 letter addressed to the Board of Regents, Wood called for transparency in order to legitimize any hire by the Board of Regents.

“We believe that, if left unaddressed, this situation may ultimately cause grave damage to the University of New Mexico,” he said in the letter. “The Audit Committee, the Internal Audit Department, and the Human Resources Division are all involved parties in this matter.” Faculty President-elect Timothy Ross said he hopes to pursue an audit next year and wants an answer from the regents by the end of this summer on whether one will be conducted. “We will insist upon them doing an independent investigation of that office,” Ross said. “You know, it’s their call. We’re simply asking them, telling them, we’d like to see an independent audit.”

afternoon in Onondaga, a town in central New York near Syracuse. Contos was driving a 1983 HarleyDavidson on a helmet protest ride organized by the Onondaga chapter of American Bikers Aimed Towards Education, or ABATE, troopers said. The organization states that it encourages the voluntary use of helmets but opposes mandatory helmet laws. Contos hit his brakes, and his motorcycle fishtailed and went out of control, flipping him over the

handlebars, police said. He was pronounced dead at a hospital. New York is one of 20 states that require all motorcycle riders to wear helmets. Lobbying by motorcyclist groups has led some states to repeal helmet laws. A helmet that meets federal standards reduces the wearer’s chances of being killed in an accident by more than 40 percent, said safety consultant Jim Hedlund, of the Governors Highway Safety Association.

Wood questions regents’ hire by Kevin Forte kforte@unm.edu

At last Monday’s Regents meeting, Wood stressed the importance of transparency in the hiring process, the gravity of the position and some questionable practices by Regents Gene Gallegos, Jamie Koch and Carolyn Abeita.

LETTERS Do not protest, but seek private counsel from leaders Editor, With many Muslims involved in rebellion against their leaders, one has to wonder: Is this rebellion permissible according to Islam? This question has largely gone unnoticed in the media coverage of the socalled “Arab Spring.” However, Al-Jazeera and Fox News didn’t teach Islam to the world; the Prophet Muhammad did. The Prophet Muhammad said, “Whoever wishes to advise the ruler, then let him not mention it in public, rather let him take the ruler by his hand. So, if he listens then that is that, and if not then he has fulfilled that which is upon him.” It becomes clear, then, that protesting in the streets or violently trying to overthrow leaders has no basis in Islam. The Muslim should sincerely communicate his concern in private to the leader and then leave it at that. Muhajir Romero UNM student

Goodbye, Souper Salad; I’ll miss your ‘exotic’ taste

COLUMN

Editor, I was deeply saddened when I discovered that the Souper Salad near the University went out of business last week. As a student, and now as a staff person, Souper Salad always fed me for a reasonable price. The salad and soup items were fresh and exotic. The music was always pleasant, and the service was exceptional. I was a picky eater before I discovered Souper Salad. Thanks to the restaurant, I developed a sophisticated palate that craves for a salad made of beets, jicama, mandarin orange slices and green chili, piled with raisins, sunflower seeds and smothered with olive oil. Most of all, I will miss the dedicated workers: Adelina, who studied her tattered Bible between customers; Shanna, who had only one stubborn credit to go for her anthropology degree; and Jennifer, who threw me a policeman’s discount from time to time. You guys set the bar high, and it’s going to be hard to find a replacement. You not only fed my stomach, but you fed my heart, and now it is broken. Chuck Reuben UNM staff

Ethically, board comes up short by Wayne Johnson Daily Lobo Guest Columnist No one is perfect. The devil is in the details. No good deed goes unpunished. These statements are all cliché, but every one accurately describes Bernalillo County’s Ethics Ordinance. The ordinance was — I believe — an honest attempt to protect the public from the perception and reality of county employees’ and elected officials’ misbehavior. It created a set of standards and a process for enforcing those standards. Allegations against a county employee or elected official can be made through a sworn complaint or anonymously. A web portal collects anonymous complaints, and not surprisingly, the county’s web portal became the favorite way to file a complaint. No one is perfect In order to protect employees and officials from frivolous complaints, an independent investigator reviews anonymous complaints to determine the validity of the allegation and the applicability of the ordinance. Should facts be found supporting a violation, the ordinance requires that the Internal Audit contractor “prepare the sworn complaint and present its investigation to the Ethics Board.” The ordinance clearly intends that a full five-member board hear complaints, even providing for a replacement appointee when a member has a conflict of interest. To date, the Internal Audit contractor has in three cases found facts that supported a violation of the county’s Ethics Ordinance. Would it surprise you to learn that one of the complaints

has been dismissed despite that the full Ethics Board hasn’t heard a case in more than a decade? It certainly surprised me. In fact, I was shocked! The devil is in the details One of my constituents recently said, “Is it any surprise that they found a way around the ordinance when the ordinance itself was taken from Cook County, Ill.?” In point of fact, the shortcut to dismissal wasn’t found in Chicago, but in the City of Albuquerque. At the last Ethics Board full meeting in October 2010, the county attorney presented the board with a set of Rules and Regulations that included language from the City of Albuquerque Ethics Board creating a three-member “review committee.” The “review committee” — comprised of Ethics Board members appointed by the Ethics Board chair — has the authority to summarily dismiss complaints in secret before a public hearing. That’s how a case was dismissed before the Ethics Board or public could hear it. When the case was “reviewed” by the “review committee,” two members of the Ethics Board were waiting to be confirmed, and one member was appointed by the accused. County Attorney Jeff Landers in a Jan. 18 memo encouraged the three remaining members to “review” the case even though the board was missing two members. Worse, he seemingly encouraged dismissal stating, “(A)s you are aware, the review committee is able to review the complaint and determine whether it believes that the matter should be dismissed without hearing.” How can the public trust a committee ruling when one of the members is appointed by

the accused, the decision was made in secret and the county attorney appears to encourage dismissal without a public hearing? The ethics ordinance created a two-step process where an independent investigator reviews a case to determine its merits, then presents the case to the full Ethics Board. It does not include a “review committee” and does not permit hearings by less than the full board. The “review committee” process is disingenuous and perhaps deceives the public — not to mention the pall it casts over the accused who is denied the opportunity for public exoneration. No good deed goes unpunished The three complaints found to have merit, including the “dismissed” complaint, have all been against commission chair and Ethics Ordinance champion Maggie Hart Stebbins. It’s the irony of ethics ordinances that they can be used unethically, and perhaps that is the case here. However, we will never know for sure in at least one case because that case has been secretly dismissed by a “review committee.” The people of Bernalillo County deserve open, transparent and ethical government. There can be no shortcuts to dismissal and no short-circuiting the process created by the commission. Valid complaints need to be heard in public, not dismissed behind closed doors. It’s our responsibility as elected officials to restore and maintain the trust in county government. Obviously, we still have a long way to go. Wayne Johnson is the Bernalillo County commissioner.

Western states welcome snow in their swimsuits by Robin Hindery

The Associated Press As the Fourth of July holiday weekend kicks off, people across the western U.S. are donning shorts, bikini tops and Hawaiian shirts — and then they’re hitting the slopes. Ski resorts from California to Colorado opened for the weekend to take advantage of an unusual combination of dense lingering snow from late-season storms in the Sierra Nevada and the Rockies and a high-pressure system ushering in warm air from the east. Resort operators were reporting large crowds, balmy temperatures and plenty of bare skin. “I’ve seen bathing suits, funny costumes like Hawaiian skirts and silver sequined pants. Shorts are very standard today,” said Rachael Woods, a spokeswoman for California’s Alpine Meadows, which has offered Independence Day skiing just one other time in its 50-year history. “People are coming off the slopes and putting on flip-flops.” Temperatures at the base of

the mountain were in the upper 50s. At Snowbird Ski and Summer Resort in Utah, 783 inches of snow this season smashed the old record of 688 inches set in the winter of 1983-84. By the time the resort closes for the season after Monday’s holiday, it will have been open a record 202 days. Colorado’s Arapahoe Basin Ski Area drew more than 1,500 skiers and snowboarders Saturday — about half as many people as a regular-season weekend day, said spokeswoman Leigh Hierholzer. The resort, located 70 miles west of Denver, last offered skiing on the Fourth of July weekend in 1997, she said. The weather allowed some of the more adventurous skiers at Arapahoe to try “pond skimming,” a blend of snow skiing and waterskiing in which an individual picks up as much speed as possible going downhill and then attempts to coast over the top of a mountain lake. But while snow-sport enthusiasts are celebrating, the peculiar conditions are proving

frustrating — and even deadly — for visitors to some of the West’s popular camping and hiking destinations. This year’s massive snowpack is thawing, causing rivers and streams to surge and prompt flood warnings. At Yosemite National Park in California, one hiker was killed and another remained missing after they were swept off a bridge into a reservoir Wednesday by unusually high runoff. Several of the park’s popular high-country campgrounds, cabins and other amenities remain closed due to snow. Officials at nearby Stanislaus National Forest have had to turn away disappointed visitors seeking permits to hike the popular backcountry this weekend, said Karen Caldwell, summit district ranger for the forest, which is located primarily in Tuolumne County. Much of the terrain above 8,000 feet remains blanketed in snow, while some lowerelevation areas are blocked by high- and fast-running creeks and overflowing rivers. Oregon and Wyoming both

Despite the potential hazards, chilled rivers and snowy mountains might sound pretty good to those battling scorching heat that reached triple digits in some places. In Phoenix, a 10-year-old record high for the date was broken when the city reached 118 degrees. The National Weather Service issued a heat advisory for the San Francisco Bay area, warning the elderly, the very young and

the infirm to avoid spending too much time outdoors. Farther south, Santa Barbara County planned cooling centers in libraries, senior centers and other community facilities in seven cities. Of course, not everyone has the option to travel to beat the heat. In Arizona’s Maricopa County, Sheriff Joe Arpaio ordered a box truck filled with thousands of bags of ice to be delivered to the county’s outdoor jails. Arpaio said inmates would be able to have as many bags of ice as they needed and could use them as they saw fit — including to sit on.

HAVING A SOCIAL LIFE A NECESSARY EVIL by Graham Gentz

culture@dailylobo.com Living with people is hard, but necessary. Humans are social animals with family, friends, classmates, co-workers, acquaintances, enemies and lovers. Some of these relationships are beneficial and intentional. Others are the by-product of being a social animal who is seemingly unable to separate itself from the relationships that unfold as a result of being defined outside yourself. So how do you deal with assholes? If everyone is an island, and that makes everyone scared inherently, then this loneliness and insecurity is what drives us to make these bridges. The fear and search for identity is what makes us human and social animals in whole. People simply can’t seem to handle their own shit. Spite and rage, always originating from the inside, build these bridges. The assault outward to other islands is based on destroying the other bridges people have made. The seemingly universal social fear that validation requires makes these island assaults a nasty and effective combat. So how are you supposed to deal with this kind of thing? How are you supposed to deal with breakups and lost friends, the angry judgment of parents or the paralyzing hushed rumor mill of people you hardly know? It’s not easy. It’s true that you’re an island. But the rest of the world is not a mainland. It’s nothing but other is-

lands populated by one. Why do you do the things you do? Is it an altruistic desire to help people? Is it a selfish view that you must get the world before it gets you? Anywhere in between? No (expletive) idea maybe? These seem like polar opposites, but they provide the same problem — the need to get your information about yourself and the world from others. This is how assholes get in. The assholes have an island just like you, but there’s no reason their island should have anything to do with your island. You can’t escape from your island view and no one can ever, unfortunately, stand on your island the same way you do. The less offensive and more comprehendible realities of the island view come from how personal experience leads to differing tastes in music, literature, food and anything else. Some people can’t be saved. Your grandmother may never pick up a fantasy or science fiction novel because “it’s not real.” There’s nothing that will ever change that. But does this make their opinions more or less wrong or valid? No. It makes it the opinion that can only come from island view. These views of your island have nothing to do with your island itself. You have a ridiculous amount of power to build that island to heights that you alone determine. Never forget that your life is your own every single second you’re alive. Simply recall that the entire world can think you’re scum, and it can’t and won’t stop you from doing what is right.

One month of summer gone! You’re wasting time! There’s so much music, so much of it is completely terrible. But you can relax, Daily Lobo is here to calmly lay down hits and highlights for July in the soft, soothing voice that only a mother can provide.

Saturday Streetlight Manifesto *Reel Big Fish *Rodeo Ruby Love * The Maxies Sunshine $18

July 24 Red Elvis * Ya Ya Boom Launchpad $10 The Red Elvises (led by Igor, no joke) are a Russian-American band of sexy surf and rockabiliy roots, and it performed all of the badass post-apocalyptic film “Six String Samurai” (Look it up). Rock ’n roll is good for the soul, and you don’t get much of it in our pop, “Black and Yellow” days. Not everybody can be Michael Franti.

Ralph Stanley & The Clinch Mountain Boys Friday National Hispanic Cultural Center $25 and up Ralph Stanley is the man. That’s all there is to it. A definitive bluegrass singer and banjo player, Stanley is probably most known to the masses for providing his voice for the haunting acapella version of “O Death” in “O Brother, Where Art Thou?” No one plays banjo like Dr. Ralph Stanley. His three-finger technique is wicked fast.

Sunshine is bringing the ska to ‘Querque for its big summer show. Reel Big Fish did its 90s thing, and if you dug that when you were buying “Parental Advisory”-labeled albums for the sake of it, you’ll probably enjoy it now. Streetlight has some of the best instrumentation around, so go if you’ve never seen it. And if you have seen it before, you are probably going.

Yes, these windbags of all that is death and chaos are still crack-a-lackin. The band must combine its force to survive, fortunately for those who still care. Presentation will likely be good — those desperate not to die and fade away into obscurity pour the gimmick on thick. If at least one giant flaming skull doesn’t explode, you can tell them personally that I was disappointed.

My Gold Mask Low Spirits July 24 $5

My Gold Mask has a pseudo-White Stripes set up (man on guitar, lady drummer) but for playing creepy indie pop-rock. It’s like a minimum Magnetic Fields, and it’s not at all bad. Five dollars is a hell of a price to get your poppy weirdness on, provided you’re 21 or over. It sucks, as I figure this sort of thing would appeal more to the young impressionables.

That’s right, Robert Allen Zimmerman himself. You might want this, at least for the novelty, if you’re the kind that respects the man for his poetry and single-handedly creating genres and genres of musicians who didn’t want to “sing purty” anymore, but wanted that raspy, hard sound (See: Tom Petty, Bruce Springsteen, every folker, punker or indie rocker that every lived).

wordplay to the fullest when the script practically begs them to. The design also leaves much to be desired. The set’s few drab, black flats could use color. It intrudes on many scenes, awkwardly hanging over settings that don’t seem like they should have a wall. The lighting, which is the same for every scene, blurs the show together and represents a missed opportunity. Slight light changes could have given the short pieces much-needed individuality. By the end of the show, however, one leaves not just entertained, but with an informed view of the world.  This is the true magic of Silverstein’s work, and Apocracy’s production of “Shel’s Shorts” achieves it.

“Hangnail,” a perfect exhibition of Frazier’s talent for rapidfire dialogue, she is wholly convincing as a woman far too obsessed with her fingernails’ health. Her performance in the short, “Gone to Take A …” is wonderful. She works with Andy Brooks, playing her petulant employee, with energy and attention to detail. As the tale twists and turns, the actors own their character shifts and finish the night on a high note. Much of the show entertains in fits and starts. Many pieces start wonderfully, only to lose their comedic momentum and drag across the finish line. They could use more direction. Actors in certain roles fail to use Silverstein’s language and

The best children’s entertainment communicates greater truths in ways children understand and adults appreciate. In “Shel’s Shorts,” a night of short plays meant for adults, Shel Silverstein shows that his wit, humor and insight have no age limits.   Apocracy Theatre Company’s production struggles and seems amateurish, but it makes good use of Silverstein’s clever, observant humor and delivers a unique night of theater. The 11 shorts share a fascination with human behavior, chiefly regarding boundaries and unspoken rules we observe in our lives and what

encourages us to break them. As with any night of short plays, some are better, and the best ones boast fantastic performances.   Theodore Hamblin, Apocracy’s artistic director, plays many characters, including a philosophical construction worker, an earnest sign-salesman and a flustered advertising executive.  Hamblin shows incredible commitment and a good deal of range, enjoying each character’s increasing desperation. In his scenes, he crackles with energy, and it’s a shame that some of his cast mates can’t reach his level.   Rhiannon Frazier displays no such problems. The two best shorts of the night have her to thank. In the monologue

Mixed Martial Arts

New Mexico: Step into the cage by Ryan Tomari

rtomari@unm.edu The Pit is getting ready to rumble. University Arena has seen its share of concerts, men’s and women’s NCAA tournament basketball games and boxing bouts. Now, mixed martial arts will debut Aug. 13 when MMA Fight Pit presents “Genesis” — a 10-bout fight card that can be viewed live nationally on Pay-Per-View by MulitVision Media. Co-founders Torry Crooks and Nick Montoya roped MMA fighter Tommy Truex, from the JacksonWinkeljohn camp, to set up matches. Crooks said Albuquerque has been beckoning for MMA. “It really equated to a mandate from the masses, and the MMA community here realizes that we have the best fighters in the world,” he said. “They’re really eager to see them display their skills on a grander stage.” The main event will feature Ultimate Fighting Championship veterans Houston Alexander and Razak Al-Hassan, who will duel in a light heavyweight battle. The 135pound co-main event pits local fighter Coty “Ox” Wheeler against UFC fighter Jens Pulver. Wheeler said he is anxious to be a part of The Pit’s first MMA event. “This is a big night for New Mexico,” he said. “I’m very, very happy and proud to say that I can be a part of this to open up The Pit and fight a legend. I’m fighting a really big name, and I’ve watched Pulver since I was a kid.”

The fight card will also feature other local, notable fighters. Angelica Chavez and Lenny Lovato will fight opponents on the card. In the only women’s fight of the night, Chavez will attempt to stay undefeated when she faces Diana Rael in a 105-pound title match. Chavez hasn’t fought in her home town for two years, and she said there is no better Albuquerque venue to fight at than The Pit. “I think it’s a good time in my career for this fight,” she said. “I’m really excited to show what I have again. I think all the guys are going to have great fights, but I’m telling you the girls are going to steal the show.” Lovato — known as “the Godfather” — is also an AlbuquerqueMMA local favorite. He will look to earn his ninth career win in the cage with a brawl against Junie Browning. Lovato said it’s been too long since he stepped into the cage. “I took a little hiatus and got a little fat,” he said. “But the weight is coming off good, and I’m just pumped to get in there and do what I do.”

MMA Fight Pit’s “Genesis” Aug. 13 The Pit $34 and up

Djokovic makes room for a Wimbledon trophy by Chris Lehourites

by Cesar Davila

Whether by accident or with intent, almost all of UNM head women’s basketball coach Yvonne Sanchez’s assistant coaches have some connection to the Mountain West Conference or The Pit. More than 500 fans gathered Thursday in the Club Level of The Pit to witness Sanchez formally introduce her coaching lineup and listen to them recount their philosophies and memories of the league and The Pit. Assistant coach Anthony Turner served as a defensive coordinator for 12 years and coached at MWC schools, including UNLV and San Diego State, and he just left Boise State. He said his familiarity with the conference could help UNM succeed. “I really feel like all of that has been a prelude,” he said. “All of the experiences that I’ve had have been preparation for this tremendous opportunity.” Assistant Vicki Hall, who played professional basketball for 17 years, said the The Pit’s atmosphere

Associated Press Novak Djokovic defeated Rafael Nadal during Sunday’s final of Wimbledon. It’s Djokovic first win at the English tournament. long on match point, Djokovic turned to face them and dropped to the turf, laying on his back with his arms spread wide. “When you’re playing the best player in the world, Rafael Nadal, who has won two out of the last three Wimbledons, and he’s always been winning the big matches against me in the Grand Slams, I had to be on the top of my game. I had to play my best and I think I played, really, probably my best match on the grass courts ever,” Djokovic said.

The Associated Press

Novak Djokovic won his first Wimbledon title Sunday, backing up his soon-to-be No. 1 ranking by beating defending champion Rafael Nadal 6-4, 6-1, 1-6, 6-3. Djokovic, who was already guaranteed to take over the top ranking from the Spaniard on Monday, extended his mastery over Nadal this season with a fifth-straight head-to-head victory. After shaking hands with Nadal at the net, Djokovic walked back out on court and crouched down. He pulled a blade or two of grass out of the manicured lawn and put it in his mouth. “It’s really hard to describe this with any words except the best day of my life, most special day of my life,” said Djokovic, who tossed three of his rackets into the crowd before accepting the championship trophy. “This is my favorite tournament, the tournament I always dreamed of winning. The first tennis tournament I ever watched in my life.” Djokovic’s No. 1 ranking was assured just by reaching the final. He opened the season with 41 straight wins, including the Australian Open title, but his 43-match winning streak dating back to December came to an end against Roger Federer in the French Open semifinals. The win over Nadal improved Djokovic’s record in 2011 to 48-1, with five victories coming against the Spaniard in finals — two on hard courts, two on clay and now one on grass. Sunday’s win was the first grass-court title of his career. “He played better than me,” said Nadal, the 2008 and ‘10 Wimbledon champion. “For that reason, he is the champion here.” Serbian President Boris Tadic was in the Royal Box along with several former champions to watch the match on Centre Court, and when Nadal sent a backhand

reminds her of her college days at Texas. “We were No. 1 in the country in fan support,” she said. “And I haven’t seen something like this, right here today, since then.” For Erin Grant, her experience at The Pit wasn’t so long ago. She was a part of the 2003 Texas Tech team that had eliminated the Lobos in the Sweet 16 at The Pit. Before coming to UNM, Grant was an assistant coach at UT Arlington and will be instrumental in getting Texas recruits to come the University. The Lobos start the 2011-12 season in Texas against Grant’s alma mater. “It was great to play in front of all of you guys, and I loved the support,” Grant said. “But this time, it will be you guys backing our program and our team.” Sanchez said she and her coaching staff are dedicated to helping the Lobos reclaim their place atop the Mountain West Conference. “I’m going to dare to dream big,” she said. “I’ve seen a lot of my friends coach at the Final Four, and our staff would like to be there, not observing, but coaching in it.”

‘Mess’ of a team wins nothing but my heart by Ryan Tomari

rtomari@unm.edu It’s not easy being a New York Mets fan. Even in New Mexico. Seriously. I’ve come to find out that I am the butt of baseball jokes. UNM Sports Information Director Frank Mercogliano, who is from Long Island and a converted Marlins fan, said this to me on a special day of mine: “Mets still suck, but happy birthday!” My friend and former high school English teacher, Bill Torres, sent me a text right before the first pitch of the Mets season this year: “The Mets have ALREADY been mathematically eliminated from the playoffs.” I can’t even go do karaoke without being harassed for supporting the Mets. One night, I was with my buddies at a karaoke bar, and an attractive blonde walked up to me. Before I could say anything to her, she told me she was a Yankees fan, noticed my Mets hat and asked why I liked them. I told her why. and she responded with a line that I didn’t expect. “I don’t do Mets fans,” she said. To be quite honest, I love the Mets. But these last five years have been painful in Queens. The Mets are a cop-out franchise to begin with. The organization was established in 1960 because the Brooklyn Dodgers and New York Giants relocated by 1957. Older

Associated Press New York Mets shortstop Jose Reyes was leading MLB in hits and batting average heading into Friday’s game against the New York Yankees. In the early innings against the Yankees, Reyes suffered a hamstring injury and could miss action in MLB All-Star Game. Mets fans are former Giants and Dodger fans who hated the New York Yankees. But the Mets simply got their name from being the New York Metropolitans Baseball Club Inc. The “Metropolitans” were shortened to the “Mets” because it was easier to write headlines for New York newspapers. The Mets’ ballpark was named

in 1964 after founder William Shea. Over the years, Mets fans, and baseball fans who’ve seen a game at Shea Stadium, have considered the ballpark a dump. It was a dump until the day it was demolished on Feb. 18, 2009. But to Mets fans, Shea Stadium was our crappy stadium. In Queens, Shea is next to LaGuardia International Airport,

HAPS Listings

and at times, the stadium felt more like an air traffic control tower than a ballpark. But now there is the Mets’ new stadium, Citi Field, which opened in 2009. It was built in one of Shea’s old parking lots and feels like a refurbished control tower. During the 2009 season, the Mets wore a patch on the shoulder of their jerseys for Citi’s inaugural season. It looked more like the Domino’s Pizza logo. And as for actual, physical playing of the game — the Mets have sucked lately. Since 2006, the Mets have choked more times than contestants at the Nathan’s Hot Dog Eating Contest. In 2006, the Mets were on the verge of making their fifth appearance to the World Series. But Cardinals’ catcher Yadier Molina, who had a batting average of .216 and hit six home runs in the regular season, said otherwise. Molina belted a two-run home run in the ninth of Game 7 of the NLCS. It sent the Cardinals to the World Series, and they won. Since Molina’s homer, the Mets have been doomed. In the 2007 regular season, New York folded a seven-game lead over division rival, the Philadelphia Phillies, with 17 games left. The Mets lost their last three games of the season which put the Phillies into the postseason and left New York out.

Painfully dubbed the “New York Mess,” the Mets collapsed again the following season. In 2008, the Mets were predicted to win the National League East and advance to the World Series. But lighting does strike twice, or it does for Mets fans anyway. Once again, with 17 games left in 2008, New York collapsed with a three-anda-half-game division lead over the Phillies. The Mets lost 10 of those 17 games, which included the last game of the season to the Florida Marlins. The last three seasons the Mets have been plagued by injury. In one way or another, they’ve lost All-Stars David Wright, Johan Santana, Carlos Beltran and Jason Bay over the course. Now with a glimmer of hope this season, the Mets have shortstop Jose Reyes. Currently, Reyes leads MLB in hits (124) and batting average (.352). However, Reyes is a free agent after this season and looks like he might bolt across town to the Bronx. True to the Mets’ history, Reyes suffered a hamstring injury against the Yankees on Saturday and is day-to-day. Reyes was voted to the starting lineup of the NL All-Stars in next Tuesday’s MLB All-Star Game on Sunday. I have tickets to the All-Star Game in Phoenix. Dammit. Like I said, sucks to be a Mets fan.

CAPRICORN — It may be that you have been feeling rather out the loop with those you are close with. As Venus enters Cancer this week, it will become necessary for you to attend to domestic matters you have neglected. Once all your ducks are in a row, you can enjoy others’ company without being distracted by loose ends. AQUARIUS — The lively social life you lead is going to kick into hyperdrive in July

as Mercury moves into Leo. Shake up your daily routine and take advantage of the cosmic atmosphere that is ripe for expanding your network. This is an excellent time for group adventures and taking it easy. PISCES — Up until now, you’ve probably been ignoring your natural instincts to shy away from the buzz of the city. While interaction with society is healthy to an extent, this week is when that frenetic energy fizzles. Indulge in some quiet, leisurely activity and reconnect with your favorite hiding spot. ARIES — While your mind is overwhelmed by a flurry of thoughts, it will blizzard this week. The storm may be more than you can handle, and it will be too easy for unfiltered thoughts to escape. Make

sure you keep this in check, or prepare to deal with those that you burn. TAURUS — This week, you’ll probably feel the chaos from June catch up with you. Now is the time to sit, breath and mull over all that has happened. It may feel like your mind ran a marathon and produced more thoughts in the last month than last year. Think about how you can take the ideas and revelations and put them to practical use in life. GEMINI — While you’re usually out and about, this week you should consider staying home. This doesn’t mean be a hermit; rather the stars suggest you will make an excellent host. Keep in mind when composing a guest list that you will have an easier time charming the pants off who-

ever enters your domain. CANCER — It seems your head has been overcome by your heart in the past couple weeks, leading you to take action based on intuition rather than logic and practicality. More than ever, your emotions are manifested lucidly in the dream world. Explore your dreams, write about them and use them to guide you in this time of fresh beginnings. LEO — You may have recently experienced a dramatic shift in your belief system or way of life. While you do have a taste for some turmoil, it’s likely this has left your feeling discombobulated. Look for a partner — romantic or platonic — that can share your sentiments, and you’ll find great comfort in mutual distress.

VIRGO — A homebody by nature, you you’ve been trying to gather into somehave probably been spending most of your thing concrete and dependable is about time tending personal matters — until to take a turn for the better.
