COSAP: No DUI checkpoint list Staff Report Daily Lobo

A campuswide e-mail sent out Aug. 27 gave some students the impression that the Campus Office of Substance Abuse Prevention would be disclosing the locations of DUI checkpoints. “As a service to everyone, COSAP will be sending you notices of upcoming checkpoints throughout the year,” the e-mail stated. Jill Anne Yeagley, COSAP program manager, said the message was misinterpreted. “The e-mail in question wasn’t a lot different from e-mails we have previously sent to students, so I was surprised that it would be interpreted to mean we were going to provide checkpoint locations,” Yeagley said in a followup e-mail the next day. Student Jonathan Bartlett said when he read the first e-mail he thought COSAP would release checkpoint locations. “I actually thought that the initial (e-mail) was basically stating that they were going to tell us where to avoid, and I think that their retraction was probably a realization that it was a mistake of what they said in the first place,” he said. “I don’t think they should have sent it out in the first place.” Student Nathan Nelson said he didn’t expect COSAP to release checkpoint locations. “Well, they are warning them that they are out there,” he said. “Everyone knows that they are going to be out there.” Yeagley said she got e-mails from students saying they were angry that COSAP would

Information Technology Services has changed the way students and community members access Lobo-WiFi. Users now need to download a one-time policy key and use their NetID and password to connect. Jane McGuire, IT strategic planner, said the policy key and a student’s NetID will give the user credibility to use the Internet. “The combination of that policy key and your NetID … allows us to know who is on the network and that it’s UNM people using the network, because we’re not Starbuck’s,” she said. “We have sensitive information like your grades out there, and we need to protect our information. That’s why the network access control is taking a step toward securing the network.” The technology used to verify users is called Network Access Control, McGuire said. Guest users without NetIDs still have limited access to the Internet. Student Kellie Knapp said

release checkpoint locations. “COSAP wants to make it totally clear that we will never provide anyone with information regarding the location of a DUI Checkpoint,” she said in the second e-mail. “Our purpose for advising you of this weekend’s checkpoint and any future ones is not to help you ‘beat them,’ but rather to give you one more reason to avoid drinking and driving.” Yeagley said that instead of drinking and driving, students should pick a sober driver to take their friends to and from bars. They can also pitch in money for a cab ride. “Other options include the city and county Safe Ride, which is a free cab ride home from any establishment as long as both are in Bernalillo County,” she said. “In the summer, the Rapid Ride After Dark operates until 3 a.m.” Yeagley said alcohol-related crashes are the leading cause of death among college students in the U.S. The New Mexico Department of Transportation reported in 2006 that 67 percent of motor-vehicle fatalities in the state involving young adults were alcohol-related. Yeagley said even when there isn’t a crash involved, a DUI conviction can change a person’s life. “First, there is the financial burden (approximately $2,000), lost time and embarrassment at having an ignition interlock,” she said. “Some individuals will lose their jobs or opportunities for promotions as a result of a conviction.”

There is a famous story that I saw I think in five different history books about President Johnson — the Civil Rights Act of 1964, signed by President Johnson. So when I saw the story for the fifth time, same anecdote, I went to Bill Moyers and said, “So Bill, who is the source on that story? Who was there when the president was in his quarters? So Bill just kind of smiled at me like, ‘Well, you know, the president was in his bed and had the covers pulled up to his nose the way he did.’ It was clear that Moyers was

Tripp’s dad spills more Palin gossip The Associated Press ANCHORAGE, Alaska — Levi Johnston, the father of Sarah Palin’s grandchild, said the former Republican vice presidential candidate wanted to adopt his child so that people wouldn’t know her 17-year-old daughter was pregnant. In an interview with Vanity Fair, Johnston said Palin had a plan to deal with Bristol’s pregnancy. “Sarah kept mentioning this plan. She was nagging — she wouldn’t give it up. She would say, ‘So, are you gonna let me adopt him?’ We both kept telling her we were definitely not going to let her adopt the baby. I think Sarah wanted to make Bristol look good, and she didn’t want people to know that her 17-year-old daughter was going to have a kid,” Johnston told the magazine for its October edition, which goes on sale Saturday. Excerpts of the interview were posted Wednesday on the magazine’s Web site. Meghan Stapleton, Palin’s spokeswoman, did not immediately respond to request for comment, but has previously discounted Johnston’s allegations. Palin has been keeping a low profile since she resigned on July 26 with more than a year left in her first term.

A week after Republican presidential candidate John McCain named Palin as his running mate, the campaign issued a statement that her unwed daughter was pregnant. It also said Bristol, now 18, and the young man would marry. Johnston, 19, lived in the house for two months awaiting the birth of the baby, Tripp, who was born in December. The couple called off the wedding shortly after their son’s birth. Since then, Johnston has complained in national interviews that the Palins have limited his access to the boy. He’s also said he’s pursuing a career as an actor or model. Johnston said the Palin home in Wasilla was not what most people would think. “The Palin house was much different from what many people expect of a normal family, even before she was nominated for vice president. There wasn’t much parenting in that house. Sarah doesn’t cook, Todd doesn’t cook — the kids would do it all themselves,” Johnson told Vanity Fair. Palin has four other children. The youngest, Trig, is 1 year old. Johnston also repeated claims that Palin said she wanted to quit and write a book or host a TV show. When Palin returned to Alaska following McCain’s unsuccessful run for

president, she was different, Johnston said. “Sarah was sad for a while. She walked around the house pouting. I had assumed she was going to go back to her job as governor, but a week or two after she got back she started talking about how nice it would be to quit and write a book or do a show and make ‘triple the money.’ “She would blatantly say, “I want to just take this money and quit being governor,” Johnston said. He also claims Palin is not the hockey mom or outdoorswoman she claims to be. He said she rarely attended her oldest son’s hockey games, and asked Levi how to shoot a gun. “She says she goes hunting and lives off animal meat — I’ve never seen it,” Johnston said. Chuck Heath, Palin’s father, said his daughter has been out of Alaska for the past month writing her memoirs. Later this month, the former governor is expected to appear at her first commercial speaking engagement during a visit to Hong Kong to address the CLSA Investors Forum, a well-known annual conference of global investment managers. Bill Clinton, Al Gore and Alan Greenspan have spoken at the event, hosted by brokerage and investment group CLSA Asia-Pacific Markets.

logging in each time to use the computer takes a little longer, but the added security is good because it deters community users. “I think it’s effective for keeping people who just come on campus to use the Wi-Fi off campus, so it kind of reduces the traffic, but I also think it’s a little bit of a hassle for students trying to get online really quick to get information for a class or something like that,” Knapp said. “It kind of takes up a little extra time, but overall I think it’s a good idea.” Vernie Emerson, a CNM student, said she hasn’t noticed a difference in her Internet access. Emerson said she uses the computers at UNM about three times a week. She said there is usually a wait to access the computers if you’re not a student. “Sometimes there’s a long line of people waiting to use a computer,” she said. “During the day there isn’t a wait, but at night there are usually a lot more people, but (the library staff ) are good about making sure everyone gets time on the computers.” McGuire said even with the increased security, IT has no intention of monitoring what students are viewing through their laptops. “There’s 65,000 active NetIDs at UNM, so we don’t have the resources to monitor what everyone

is doing, nor do we have the interest,” she said. “This is a university, a much more open environment.” McGuire said these additional security measures are needed to protect the network connections from hackers. “As network technology improves, people who hack the network also get smarter, and so we have to use more advanced technologies to secure the network,” she said. In addition to the increased security, McGuire said Lobo-WiFi is more comprehensive throughout campus. McGuire said 80 percent of classrooms on campus now have wireless access to the Internet. She said this is a part of the classroom modernization project, which is using $12 million to renovate classrooms and improve technology used in those classrooms. In addition to this, the IT Department has also purchased licenses for all UNM community members to download antivirus systems onto their laptops, McGuire said. “We want to make sure that the machines that are accessing the network don’t have viruses on them and we don’t spread viruses through the network,” she said. “So we’re not passing viruses internally.”

LETTERS Reinstating draft will help spoiled kids build character Editor, This country is abusing its warriors in the Middle East by sending them on multiple tours. It’s taking its toll on the soldiers and their families. Units in the Marine Corps are serving nine tours in Iraq and Afghanistan, causing more injuries and death to our soldiers. On the horizon, I can foresee involvement in Iran and North Korea. These warriors who serve are coming back in body bags, maimed or emotionally destroyed. Yet there are not enough volunteers to take their place. Our reserves and National Guard (who are supposed to be protecting the home front) are sacrificing their lives, jobs and careers so the rest of us can live in freedom. Their contracts to serve are being extended involuntarily, because there are too few people who will stand up and serve. To be fair, most people should be forced to serve for a time in the military, if not only to instill discipline in their lives, then at least to witness what conflict is all about. Being a combat veteran myself has opened my eyes to the importance of giving this country my service to experience why our forefathers bled for this free land that we live in relatively safely. What is resulting from non-service is a generation of young folks who are spoiled and have life served to them on a silver platter with a silver spoon. Children disrespect this country and their parents. What they need to learn is to appreciate not having to live in fear of some dedicated, suicidal carbomber. The young today are wasteful and feel they are owed a living, instead of earning their way like the honest citizens of the United States do. Perhaps some time facing reality and risking their lives would snap them back to reality. This country needs to bring back the draft to open some eyes. Running away to Canada to get out of it is harder than what young people are doing now. Citizens need to get a taste of the medicine our soldiers take daily. Either that or let’s get the hell out of the Middle East and let them all kill themselves. This country needs some shaking up, and it needs to face the jeopardy our freedom is in. I challenge you all to man up and volunteer in whatever capacity to help this country. Your country is in dire jeopardy. William Valentine UNM student

Rollout of new tobacco-free policy unfair to UNM smokers Editor, UNM’s tobacco-free policy has its faults, most of which come from the manner in which it is being treated. Your article in Tuesday’s paper showed that, although the UNM administration has had time to prepare for the change to designated smoking areas, those areas are not clearly labeled, and many of them are not labeled at all. Many tobacco users complain about the lack of a smoking area at Dane Smith, for instance, and are unaware that a smoking area exists there. The policy states that all designated smoking areas “are clearly marked,” but this is not the case. If the administration wants us to comply with their policies, then they should be willing to comply with them as well. It’s difficult to believe that this policy isn’t discriminatory toward smokers when marking the designated areas and educating students about the policy hasn’t been a priority, especially when “disciplinary action” can be taken on those who don’t comply due to a lack of information. The transition to a tobacco-free campus would go much more smoothly if the administration worked with tobacco users instead of intentionally making smoking inconvenient. Breann Burton UNM student

COLUMN

Finding a friend at UNM by Hadeel Al-Essa

Daily Lobo guest columnist It’s my first week at UNM, and I am determined to make a friend. I made it into a Ph.D. program. Certainly I am capable of making a friend. My family calls, concerned, and I reassure them by changing the subject. “My adviser is amazing. He showed me all around the campus,” I say. Or, “Yes, my new professor is from South Africa. Isn’t that interesting?” I manage to distract them, yet I remain a bit concerned myself. I sit on the shuttle, looking out the window. During breaks between classes, I call friends in other states and ask them if they hear the fountain of water in the background. “It’s such a beautiful campus,” I say. When I go home, I decide it’s time I take matters into my own hands. Making a friend is something I have to work toward. Smiling would only take me so far. I decide to e-mail the Office of International Programs and Students. The e-mail starts like this: “I am a new student, and because I was born in the U.S., I am not considered an international student, but I am looking to meet people.” I add their group to my Facebook, so that I’ll be notified of events. Within a day or two, I get a phone call from a local number. I decide to answer it, and the young woman on the other end

is speaking Arabic. I am surprised, and it seems OIPS was more concerned than my parents and forwarded my contact information to a student who is from the same region as me. She is very friendly and invites me to the local mosque. I thank her and tell her I will come to meet her soon. As I hang up the phone, I am excited. There is someone in New Mexico I can speak Arabic to. However, I am concerned about her recommendation to meet her at the mosque. I forgot to tell OIPS that my mom is Swiss and my father is a liberal who writes against fundamentalism. I calm down. I have been to mosques before, and it can be a very spiritual experience. That night, I try on everything in my closet, looking for a proper outfit for the occasion. I would be going directly after class, so I want the outfit to work for class and work for a religious occasion. Nothing is working. The clothes are either not long enough or too long, or the top is cut too low. I always dress modestly, but now I don’t own proper wear to enter a mosque. After several attempts, I decide I will wear jeans and a top and then later add a cardigan to that. My friend-to-be offers to bring me a head covering after I explain that I don’t own one. I spend a good deal of time pulling on my cardigan sleeves and my top to make sure no skin is visible. I am welcomed and helped with putting on the hijab. I feel fine.

Yes, this is a good initiative on my behalf. It’s Ramadan and the perfect time to go to a mosque. As I am introduced to other people, I hear comments. “Who is she here with? Her family or her husband?” My heart throbs. I am here alone. Is there something wrong with that? A lady tells me, “You don’t look like a Kuwaiti.” I am thinking, “What does a Kuwaiti look like to you?” or, “Have you ever even been to Kuwait?” But no, I want to be courteous, so instead I say, “Yes, my mom is Swiss.” I feel awkward, so I make use of my skills. I start to help out the mothers with their children. A cute little 15-month-old boy runs away toward the door. I run to get him. This is a good distraction. I leave that night appreciative of my host. She has insisted I keep the hijab as a symbol of us meeting. I am very grateful. Certainly, my quest to make friends is not over. I walk into the SUB and see a table with the sign “Association of Non-Traditional Students.” I stop to ask for information on just what a non-traditional student is. The nice lady explains and says, “If you don’t feel like you fit in anywhere.” Does it look that obvious? I am tempted to yell “Yes! I am in.” I don’t mind the $15 a year fee. I’ll pay any cost to make a friend. Hadeel Al-Essa is a first-year Ph.D. student in the Family Studies Program at UNM.

DL: What is your definition of journalism and how do you see that definition reflected in the current state of the news media? DB: What is news is open to interpretation. But it’s not rocket science what is journalism. It is being a witness to events or history: seeing it and then writing it down, or talking about it, or shooting it on video or stills. It’s plowing through primarysource documents, spending loads of time getting to the bottom of the documentary trail. There’s probably a few other things, but a person who just takes other people’s journalism and then offers an opinion based on it, or spins it in a certain direction, they are performing an important duty. Bill O’Reilly actually

Sometimes people are spinning out opinions not based on facts, masquerading as journalists, but the public doesn’t know the difference. DL: How do you foresee the future of journalism?

But I don’t think journalism is dead yet. DL: What advice do you have for current journalism students? DB: Don’t get too depressed with the fact that newspapers are going under. It’s not a great time. But I will say this to people who have multimedia skills, who can critically think, and can write, and can do radio, TV and print: The old creeps running newsrooms are in awe of young people with multimedia skills. They think there is some sort of special secret alchemy that they bring, and that may lead them to hire you at a greater rate. They think they have the secret to crack this question of how do you make money to fund journalism. We got to have bright journalists or democracy fails.

Joey Trisolini / Daily Lobo Barrels made of oak from various regions are used in the aging process and have an effect on the resulting color and flavor of the wine at Casa Rondeña Winery.

Local wine — elite flavor by Chris Quintana Daily Lobo

T

he first vineyards in North America were grown in New Mexico, and the nearly 400-year tradition continues today at a winery within Albuquerque city limits. John Calvin, owner of Casa Rondeña Winery, said he began making wine after a successful career as an architect and musician. He said his decision to start a winery was influenced by the time he spent abroad. “While I was living in Spain as a musician in my early 20s, I was drinking the local wine,” he said. “I became interested even in my early twenties in wine-growing and winemaking.” Casa Rondeña is the fourth-biggest producer of wine in New Mexico, and one of the newest, as it opened 14 years ago. Calvin said the vineyard has won multiple medals from around the nation for its wines. “We don’t think we need to compete with anyone else in the world because we are making great wines right here,” Calvin said. “Casa Rondeña, as far as our dry red wines are concerned, is the most decorated winery in the entire Southwest.” Unlike other New Mexican wineries, Casa Rondeña features a manor and courtyard for guests to drink wine in, watch musical events, and even have a wedding ceremony. Casa Rondeña produces about 6,000 barrels of wine every year, Calvin said. The wine can be found in any specialty liquor store in the state. “We like you to buy it here,” Calvin said. “We are everywhere, but the best place is to come here and have a nice experience, because we have such nice people working here.” Jessica O’Callahan, one of Casa Rondeña’s bartenders, said she loves working at the winery, and that it’s a pleasure to work in a relaxed ambiance. “The environment is beautiful, and it’s a good learning environment,” O’Callahan said. “I am really trying to learn more about wine and the whole process.” Calvin said making wine is beyond complex, and for each type of wine there is a slightly different process. Put simply, red wines are fermented with the grape pulp, while white wines are fermented without. Calvin said these differences in fermenting lead to subtle taste differences. “White wines tend to be more vibrant, tart, and a little bit more acidic,” he said. “The flavors tend to not last as long

Red wines, you think about them being much more complex in flavor. Red wine is aged for a long time.” Calvin said that even though New Mexico does not seem a likely place to grow grapes, the environment lends itself to excellent winemaking. Grapes do not require a lot of water, and he said the only trouble in New Mexico comes from sudden temperature changes. “New Mexico is associated with dry climates, which are

actually really good for growing grapes,” he said. “The problem we have in New Mexico is we have dramatic swings in temperature. When we have rapid and dramatic temperature changes both in the spring and in the fall, we lose grape vines every year.” Calvin said that, despite Casa Rondeña’s multiple awards, some wine enthusiasts question the quality of New Mexican wine. “People have been accustomed to California cabernet, and that’s what they think the cabernet is all about,” Calvin said. “We make cabernet really well here in New Mexico, but it’s very, very different. It’s really wonderful for young folks to be interested… It gets people aware we’re making great wine in New Mexico.” Calvin said the wine community in New Mexico is more accepting and less elitist than that of California. “One of the great things about the wine scene in New Mexico, it’s the opposite of what is in California,” he said. “You don’t really have to know anything to have a really great experience. Wherever your particular taste is is where you should be – you shouldn’t let anyone tell you what you ought to be drinking.” Josh Rades, a patron of the winery, said he does not see wine as high-class snobbery either, contrary to how it’s usually depicted in popular media. “I am 25, and not an elitist, and I don’t feel uncomfortable at all,” Rades said. Casa Rondeña will participate in the Bernalillo Wine Festival this weekend, but Calvin suggests people come to the winery instead for a tasting. “It’s great for students to go out there, but it is also hot, and kind of raucous, kind of wild — it’s hot and sweaty,” Calvin said. “You’re drinking wine in the hot sun, and that’s not very cool. One of the nicest things to do in the Labor Day weekend is to come here. It’s a lot cooler, it’s quiet, and it’s peaceful.”

Downtown tea bar attracts thirsty patrons of all ages by Hunter Riley Daily Lobo

New Mexico Tea Company’s Tea Bar isn’t your grandmother’s tea house, but there’s no guarantee she won’t go after she hears about it. This summer, owner David Edwards expanded his company, which opened in 2006, into a cozy, fullfledged tea bar, open on the weekends, that serves tea and a light meal. “There’s a stereotype that just grandmothers drink tea,” Edwards said. “But we’ve had high school students, college kids, middle-aged people and older people. It’s been interesting to see that. I feel it’s a result of our efforts to try and design the store to appeal to everyone. We decided no lacy stuff, no tea cozies with little kittens on them and things like that.” While there are only three tables at the tea bar, there is a patio area equipped with shade umbrellas and misters to help with the heat. Edwards said many people came during the summer to enjoy some iced tea, and one of the most popular blends was a blood-orange rooibos. “The rooibos is popular because it doesn’t have caffeine, so anyone can The Library Bar & Grill Two Wheel Weekends On the Patio Biker’s Recieve 10% off their Tab 11am- 8pm Burts Tiki Lounge *Tiki Tuesdays!* *Scarless* *I Am Empire* *Midnight30 Project* *$4 Tiki Drinks All Night* *Rock/ Metal*

Friday - Sunday 10 a.m. - 6 p.m. drink it, and this particular one makes very good iced tea,” Edwards said. “All of the restaurants who serve our tea also serve it iced. We also have a passion-fruit green tea which is very strong and also makes a good iced tea.” Susanne Koestner, a graduate student in the counseling education program, said she buys loose-leaf tea at the New Mexico Tea Company and brings it to school. “A really great way to save money is by buying your tea in bulk, and then I just get my hot water filled up on campus in the SUB,” Koestner said. “So then I don’t have to pay $2 just to buy tea. I’m a graduate student here, so I definitely appreciate being able to have really nice tea and to not have to pay a lot for it.” Edwards said New Mexico Tea

Zach Gould / Daily Lobo Owner David Edwards in the New Mexico Tea Bar on Sunday. Edwards offers tea for two, which includes a pot of tea, a blueberry muffin, a scone and an assortment of fruit. Bar is sensitive to the student budget, so he offers a good deal on tea and a snack. “Tea for two comes with a pot of tea, a scone, a blueberry muffin and an assortment of fruit, and that is all $10,” he said. “We also don’t encourage tipping at all. Everything is built into the cost of things. Since I own the place and I’m serving, I can charge what I want for the items and there doesn’t need to be an

additional charge. But a lot of people actually feel uncomfortable with that. It’s my little social experiment.” Edwards said he has researched tea online and in books and was surprised at all the misinformation he found. “All tea comes from the same plant,” he said. “You produce the four types of tea from that plant: There’s black, green, white and oolong. … I

haven’t yet been to China, India or Japan, but I would like to go.” Koestner said students would probably enjoy the environment at the tea bar. “I’d say it’s just kind of a hip place to hang out,” she said. “It’s definitely different than anything else that’s out in the community, the Tea Bar itself. The environment is really cozy and it’s a nice place to go and hang with your friends.”
