DNA, eBay catch bike theft suspect by Tricia Remark Daily Lobo

A man police suspect of stealing five bicycles valued between $2,250 and $12,500 was arrested on campus July 24. UNMPD said Charles Gutierrez has been sawing through protective chains and cables to steal bicycles and pawn them for at least two years. Gutierrez is charged with seven counts of larceny. Senior Rikk Murphy helped police catch Gutierrez in December after Murphy’s bicycle was stolen. “I was coming back from a class at the business center and I was walking past Zimmerman Library,” Murphy said. “I saw some guy standing there with the bicycles, pulling one out, and I thought at first, ‘Oh, this guy’s got the same kind of bicycle horn that I do.’ Then it dawned on me. I was like, ‘No, that’s my bike.’” Murphy said he chased the thief as far as he could but never caught up with him. He called UNM police and said that he saw the thief set down a coffee cup before taking the bike. “At some point I mentioned to the officer that the thief left his coffee cup down there and he got all excited,” Murphy said. “I said ‘Oh yeah, it’s still down by the bike rack.’” Murphy said the officer collected the cup but he never heard back from the UNMPD about his bike. UNMPD Detective Ronnie Rushing said the department sent the cup to state lab analysts to get a

DNA profile. “This whole process takes some time — it’s not like on television where you can get it done in 30 minutes or an hour,” Rushing said. “It takes weeks if not months.” Rushing said UNMPD received a tip from another UNM bike theft victim who saw his bike online, offered for sale on eBay by Albuquerque’s Valley Pawn Shop. Rushing said UNMPD used information from Valley Pawn and DNA from the coffee cup to pinpoint Gutierrez. “When our detectives went to the Valley Pawn Shop, they were able to tell us that Charles Gutierrez was a customer there and sold several bicycles to them,” Rushing said. He said UNMPD was able to recover five bikes from Valley Pawn and return them to students. All of the bikes recovered were valued between $450 and $2,500. “This man was stealing expensive bicycles,” Rushing said. “He had an eye for it.” Rushing said students should get the strongest bike locks they can find and write down the brand, name and serial number of their bike in case of theft. “I’ve had many people come in and say ‘Yeah, my bicycle was pink,’ but they don’t even know the brand of it,” Rushing said. “We can’t help much in those cases.” Rushing said one of the best ways students can make sure their bikes are returned to them is to get their names

Locations for tobacco use still hazy by Michael T. Ruhl Daily Lobo

The tobacco-free campus policy went into effect over a month ago, but designated tobacco-use areas are still being marked. Of the 12 smoking areas on campus listed on the UNM Smoke Free Campus Web site, four are not physically marked. Also, only nine of the 12 smoking areas are circled on the online campus map. Pug Burge, chairwoman of the Smoke Free Campus Committee, said the marking of the smoking areas was disorganized, but the group did not set out to make it easy to smoke on campus anyway. “The whole idea was not to make this convenient,” Burge said. “This whole drive has been about the promotion of a healthy campus. We have been somewhat

conservative because we knew that once we identified designated smoking areas, it would be difficult to take them away.” Burge said the Physical Plant Department is in charge of installing the signs around campus, and monitoring that work wasn’t one of her priorities. “It’s been a group effort, and people in PPD have been doing their very best to get this stuff going,” Burge said. “I haven’t kept a list that I have been checking twice every day.” Win Hansen, president of Students for Sensible Drug Policy, said his organization has become the public face for smokers on campus who are displaced into “smoking ghettos” by the new policy. “The only reason we know where the smoking areas are is because we see a lot of people smoking there,” he said. “There wasn’t a

campuswide e-mail saying, ‘Here are the smoking areas on campus.’” Hansen said many students aren’t even aware of the policy. He said the lack of information presented to smokers makes the ban less effective. “To limit the information to the smokers is undermining your entire For more on UNM’s tobaccofree campus policy, check out case,” he said. “If you want them to be more educated about what you’re doing and to not subject other people to secondhand smoke, they need to know where they can smoke. They need to be participatory in deciding the policy as it stands.” Burge said the current signs are temporary, and she said the

ST. LOUIS — Josh Palmer’s story has played out countless times here in the heart of meth country. Introduced to methamphetamine as a teenager, he soon became addicted, couldn’t keep a job, lost his house and lost his family. Today, he’s turned his life around, so much so that he’s part of a national anti-meth marketing campaign that was launched Tuesday in St. Louis. “At one time in my life I thought everybody was doing dope because everybody I knew was,” Palmer, 32, said after a news conference at St. Louis City Hall. “I found out there was another world out there. And I like it a lot better.” Drug Czar Gil Kerlikowske was on hand Tuesday to launch the $9 million ad campaign. Missouri is among the states worst affected by methamphetamine addiction, and has ranked first in the nation for years in meth-lab busts and seizures. Wyoming, Arkansas and Nevada were the top three states in per capita use of meth among people ages 18-25 in a 2007 survey by the Substance Abuse and

Mental Health Services Administration. The new campaign focuses on a message of hope — that meth addiction can be overcome. The ad blitz runs through November and will be run in newspapers, online and on TV, radio, billboards and even gas pumps. It focuses on the 16 states with the worst meth problems — Missouri, Illinois, Iowa, Oklahoma, Minnesota, Arkansas, Indiana, Kentucky and Nebraska in the Midwest and Alaska, Washington, Oregon, Nevada, Wyoming, Arizona and New Mexico in the West. Anti-meth radio and Web ads will run nationally. “Despite the overall decline in meth usage across the country, we still have work to do,” Kerlikowske said. “This drug leaves a path of destruction that affects individuals, families and entire communities.” The ads focus on prevention and provide information to meth users and their families seeking recovery services. They target people ages 18-34, the age group most likely to use the drug. “Meth is literally stealing the lives of people across the state, specifically young people,” Missouri Attorney General Chris Koster said.

FROM THE WEB Yesterday, the Daily Lobo published an update on the UNM Mailing Systems policy that caused the mail room to return Ph.D. candidate Nina Lanza’s dancing shoes because they weren’t considered University business. The policy has been suspended. Readers on started a lively discussion on the subject. Rick Porfrey Posted Tuesday “Left unreported by the Daily Lobo or University Services is the way Nina Lanza verbally abused the staff at MS. It is sad to see such reprehensible behavior rewarded by the University …” Justin Dodd Posted Tuesday “I would like to applaud Ms. Lanza and University Services for their efforts to bring about much needed changes in Mailing Systems policy. Policies instated by the University exist for the benefit of the University community. Policies that are outdated or no longer serve the community in an effective manner should be reevaluated. Ms. Lanza has done the University a service by calling attention to an arbitrary and antiquated mail censorship system. It is refreshing to see these issues dealt with in a constructive manner by Ms. Lanza, University Services and the UNM Policy Office.” unm staff Posted Tuesday “Also left unreported by the Daily Lobo was that Ms. Lanza is an Earth and Planetary Sciences grad student who had her UNM-related dancing shoes sent to that address as opposed to her club’s address. Dancing shoes to E&PS – it’s not censorship. I would have sent them back, too. I agree with Porfrey that it’s sad that UNM continually rewards self-centered whiners, at the real monetary expense of students and taxpayers. As for Justin, another E&PS grad student, how does UNM Mailing Systems becoming inundated with personal mail and packages benefit the University? But even with all my complaining, I am glad there are now no restrictions (at least for the next few months) on personal mail. I can’t wait to have all my Christmas gifts like games, DVDs, books, music and maybe even some shoes shipped to campus so I don’t have to go pick them up or worry about having them stolen before I get home at night! Thanks Daily Lobo and Mailing Systems!”

LETTERS La Posada offers healthy food, astonishing customer service Editor, My first lunch at La Posada, under the then-new management of Chartwells, was motivated by a Friday special and my love of buffets. I liked the food but was even more impressed that while some of the stations offered a certain dish, e.g., the pizza station, several offered balanced dishes that changed from day to day. Given my own reluctance to cook, I soon reasoned that between the balanced dishes, the excellent

Denish most qualified to help economy and education in NM Editor, The state of New Mexico, along with nearly every other state in the union, is facing hard times due to the global economic crisis of the past year. Now more than ever, it is important to have a steady hand at the wheel to guide our state down the road of prosperity. Lt. Gov Diane Denish is a strong, thoughtful and mainstream leader and will make a great governor of our state. Denish has a proven track record of working hard to help the state of New Mexico achieve great things. As lieutenant governor, she has led the fight to improve education across the state

Veterans of the armed forces earn benefits by their service Editor, As a veteran of the U.S. armed forces, two emotions came to mind as I read James N. Post’s letter on veterans benefits. The first emotion was that of pride. The Constitution guarantees not only the freedom of the press, but also the freedom of speech. When taking the oath of enlistment, you swear

juices, the ever-present green-chile-chicken stew and the salad bar, I could conveniently improve my diet for less money than eating out. I purchased a commuter plan and loved it. While purchasing my second plan, I ran afoul of the summer schedule which, as staff, I had misunderstood. I asked for a refund. I was impressed that Chartwells delivered that refund in a single day, and in cash, no less. I was astonished, however, that they left some meals on my Lobo Card. When I said that I wasn’t trying to steal from them, I was told, “Nonsense, this is just good business.” I had always appreciated the friendly staff, but that was amazing.

That same manager explained to me a month or two later that Chartwells had figured out that faculty and staff almost never ate dinner, but only lunch and breakfast. Consequently, the price for commuter plans was going down a bit. I used to pay a little more than $7, and now pay a little less than $6. I cannot remember the price for anything else I have purchased decreasing. The commuter plans: good food, easy nutrition, great staff, smart management and astonishing customer service. I like Chartwells.

by working to provide more pre-kindergarten opportunities to New Mexican children. She also has helped provide more after-school programs to children and teens through the Next Generation Fund. As a college student, I am glad to see how much Denish values education as an important priority for the state. Another part of what makes Denish uniquely qualified to be governor is that she will continue the work of Gov. Bill Richardson by creating a strong, diverse and vibrant economy in New Mexico. Even in these tough economic times, New Mexico continues to be a national leader in job growth and economic momentum. The RichardsonDenish administration has overseen massive economic growth in our state’s economy through the majority of its tenure. Even during a global economic crisis, New Mexico

has maintained one of the lowest unemployment rates in the nation. Denish has already proven she has an understanding of what drives the New Mexican economy: small businesses. She has successfully worked toward making it easier for small businesses to obtain loans and various other forms of investment. She regularly holds forums with small-business leadership and understands the concerns and needs of this vital group. The people of New Mexico need strong, proven leaders. Denish will govern as a pragmatic and thoughtful leader and will be an excellent governor of New Mexico. Denish is the clear pick as New Mexico’s next governor.

an allegiance to your country and the defending of the Constitution. Since Post used two of his entitlements, he let me know that my brothers and sisters in arms are doing their job. The second emotion was outrage. As an incentive to defend our Constitution against all enemies foreign and domestic, I was promised health care for my service. If your employer does not offer health care, that is your problem. Mine did, and I took advantage of it. As an incentive to stay in the military until retirement, I was offered health care for life. Just as an employer pays workers’ compensation, the

government is responsible to compensate for injuries incurred on active duty. What it comes down to is the veterans of the armed forces are given benefits for their service and sacrifice. I proudly served and am now attending UNM using my GI Bill. So, for defending your freedoms, I am able to educate myself for continued service. Thank you, Mr. Post, and God bless America.

Documentarian sends viewers in search of self by Tomas E. Moralez Daily Lobo

Sit down in the deep mountains of South Korea. Prepare to find your inner self. Sang Hwan Kim, the producer of “Zen Buddhism: In Search of Self,” which premieres at a Singapore film festival this month, says that one can spiritually die and be reborn, become one with the body and mind, and ascend to another level of life through meditation. The documentary is set in the Baek Hung (pronounced ‘beck kung’) Temple, deep in the Palgong Mountains of Daegu, South Korea, during a 90-day event known as Dong Ahn Geo, when Zen Buddhist nuns gather for rigorous meditation, fasting and contemplation. Kim, a Korean-American who was born in what is now South Korea, is working on a doctorate in exercise science at UNM. It took Kim several years to persuade the Zen Buddhists to allow him and his crew to film the 90-day retreat, and he finally got permission in 2001. The Zen Buddhists have been taking part in this event for nearly 1,000 years, Kim said. However, no one has ever been allowed to film the event because doing so is considered taboo in Korean society, especially when women are involved. “What I found so amazing was the extreme seriousness of this religious event, but also the irony when the Zen Buddhist nuns were given leisure time,” he said. “They would create a fun and loving atmosphere through games and singing.” For the past 25 years, Kim has been teaching Tae Kwon Do, a Korean style of self-defense, in the United States. He said he has practiced martial arts his whole life. Throughout his teenage years, he trained deep in the mountains of Bisul in the Yuga Temple, three hours west of the Baek Hung Temple. He also went through rigorous meditation and fasting. “Generations of my family were martial artists, so it was only natural that I would also become one,” Kim said. “It was an experimental journey for enlightenment. I wanted to synthesize Eastern and Western methods of martial arts to find better ways of helping people develop healthier lifestyles.” Kim said his love for extreme environments, where the terrain is difficult and challenging to live in, is what

drew him to the Land of Enchantment. He said it reminded him of his training in the Korean mountains as a teenager. In March 2009, Kim was contacted by representatives of the 2009 Thus Have I Seen Buddhist Film Festival in Singapore, who wanted to feature his documentary. The 2009 T.H.I.S. Buddhist Film Festival is sponsored by Dharma in Action, a nonprofit organization that promotes the Buddhist lifestyle in Singapore for the benefit of society and mankind. “At first, I thought they were joking, because the film was a for-television documentary, not a form of entertainment, but I realized they were serious after receiving more requests from them,” he said. “So my wife, Cynthia, and I got to work on making changes to the film to match the specifications that were requested.” The film is scheduled to be shown this month at the Brothers Lido Cinema in Singapore, but it’s also for sale online. Freshman Anthony Santistevan said he would be interested in seeing the film and possibly imitating the Zen Buddhists. “It looks like something only seen in the movies, but it opened me up to the idea,” he said. “I would actually like to try something similar, such as training in New Mexico’s wilderness. It sounds like a good experience.” Kim said he was pleasantly surprised to find out his documentary will have a wider audience, being presented on a much bigger stage than he had planned. “There is a saying in meditation that goes, ‘Before training, a mountain is mountain and water is water,’” he said. “‘During training, mountain becomes water and water becomes mountain. After training, mountain is mountain and water is water again. It is the same mountain and water, but changed perspectives.’ It’s symbolic of how when we are beginners at something new; we take steps, but as we master it, we become less conscious of our actions.”

Gabbi Campos / Daily Lobo After graduating from Berklee School of Music for guitar, Ben McClintock returned home to invent a new sound for his music. McClintock, who has quickly formed a group temporarily named Wal-Mart, will play at Burt’s Tiki Lounge on Friday.

by Hunter Riley Daily Lobo

Ben McClintock has returned to his native Albuquerque, but only for a bit. He graduated from Berklee College of Music for guitar, but figured too many other people did the same thing. Now he’s come home to invent a unique sound and perfect it before he moves to San Francisco. Since his return, McClintock has joined up with some friends to form a group temporarily named Wal-Mart. McClintock is also teaching guitar lessons. Daily Lobo: Who are you? Ben McClintock: My full name is Ben McClintock. I am originally from Albuquerque, but I’ve spent the last four years in Boston studying music at Berklee College of Music. I play guitar but I’m very interested in new sounds and electronic sounds. I’ve invested a lot of time and money into effects pedals, guitar-effects pedals and whatnot. I played in a band out in Boston for a couple years, and we did a New England tour, and then we disbanded shortly before I moved back to Albuquerque, which was just a couple days ago. Now I’m just going to write a lot of music and try to teach, and then towards the end of this year I’m going to move to San Francisco to tap into the music scene out there. DL: What brought you back to Albuquerque? BM: I needed some time to catch up with what I’ve learned. I want to di-

gest what I’ve learned, and Albuquerque is a much easier place to do that for me. There’s not as much distraction here as there was in Boston. DL: When did you get into guitar and music? BM: I started playing music real late, around the time I first went to college. And at that point I just got really into it. Then, after that first year of college, I took a year-and-a-half off just to practice, and then I got into Berklee in January of 2006. DL: Are you going to be playing shows while you’re back in Albuquerque digesting your education? BM: There’s a local band here called A Man About a Horse, and we kind of formed a little side project (Wal-Mart), and we’re playing a show this Friday at Burt’s Tiki Lounge. The two other members in the band are both playing different instruments. I’m going to be playing guitar, and I’ve got all my effect toys to mess around with. It’s going to be kind of improvised. We’re trying to form basic structures and we’re going to try and play around that. DL: How did you break away from doing traditional guitar to experimental effect music? BM: Berklee College of Music — there’s a thousand guitarists there studying guitar. So it just became very apparent to me that it’s very easy to fall into this guitarist style. And there are so many people that do the same thing, and I feel kind of like it’s just regurgitated and it’s not very creative.


Friday, 7 p.m. Burt’s Tiki Lounge 313 Gold Ave. SW Free

It kind of turns into a competition of who can play the traditional stuff the best, and I don’t really have an interest in competitive music. And then my band in Boston, we were called Izzi Creo, we were an instrumental threepiece of guitar, bass and drums. So we had to figure out a lot of ways to keep the audience interested, because you don’t have vocals and you don’t have a lot of information for dynamics. DL: What kind of things do you do to keep your audience interested? BM: All of our songs are pretty long: I think the shortest song we had was seven minutes. It’s a lot of precomposed music where we would start with an idea, and it was rare that we would repeat an idea. And that was one thing that we consciously did so we could keep things moving and have movement with other songs. My other two bandmates were Berklee students, so we tried to utilize a lot of what we learned without being too obvious about it. I think a lot of bands that we played with, or bands that come out of Berklee, are very technical-based and sometimes it just doesn’t even sound good.
