Retiring dean nurtured respect for architecture by Andrew Beale Daily Lobo
Architecture Dean Roger Schluntz announced his plans to retire next year after a decade overseeing UNM’s School of Architecture. Schluntz made the announcement June 30. He said he will continue as a UNM faculty member, but said it was time to pass the responsibilities of dean on to someone else. “It’s a combination of ‘OK, I’ve probably done what I can do,’ and one has to realize there are other capable people,” he said. Schluntz, who was honored as a Fellow of the American Institute of Architects, will still be chair of the Design Review Board.
“I’m not actually retiring,” Schluntz said. “I’m shifting courses.” Among Schluntz’s accomplishments at UNM are the establishment of a degree program in Landscape Architecture and of two new graduate-level degrees — Historic Preservation & Regionalism and Town Design. Schluntz was also instrumental in building George Pearl Hall, the architecture building located across from the campus bookstore. Schluntz said the new space has helped bolster the position of the architecture department within the University. “This building has certainly become a national landmark,” Schluntz said. “Our visibility within the University has basically gone from inconse-
quential to the highest in UNM, because of our location and the quality of the building.” Architecture student Tim Castillo said Schluntz worked hard to get the building completed. “He’s been phenomenally instrumental in getting this building done,” Castillo said. “The building is phenomenal compared to where we were before. It’s night-and-day.” Virginia Raybon, another architecture student, said George Pearl Hall made the architecture department the face of the University. “It’s a world apart,” she said. “We were across the street in that terrible building. I love how we have a really prominent building on Central. We went from a shoebox across the street to this.”

ASUNM sent a resolution that would allow the UNM community to take Veterans Day off back to committee during its ﬁrst meeting Wednesday. Sixteen senators voted in favor of sending the vote back and four voted against. The same resolution passed during the Graduate and Professional Student Association meeting Saturday. The resolution asks the University to give students Veterans Day off, even if Nov. 11 falls on a weekend. The Steering and Rules Committee will vote on the resolution Wednesday. Zack Mutchler, president of Student Veterans of UNM, told the ASUNM senators that each person deserves the opportunity to decide how they want to spend Veterans Day. “Observance is a personal thing,” Mutchler said. “Some people at the University are saying that veterans should do some kind of memorial service. While that would be nice, it’s not a replacement, and it’s not acceptable to force someone to observe that way.” Mutchler said the Regents will ultimately decide if UNM students are given a day off in observance of

Senior gets sign language award by Deyber Menchaca Daily Lobo
Senior Emily Haynes was so overcome with emotion when she received the first-ever Phyllis Perrin Wilcox Scholarship that she could only use sign language to express her gratitude. Haynes, a signed language interpreting major, received the scholarship through the linguistics department. Private donations completely funded the award, said graduate student Bryan Rasmussen. Haynes said the community’s support might strengthen the program itself by encouraging more students to enroll in it. “The growth of this program represents strides in the deaf community,” she said. “As this program grows and develops, we have better interpreters and more interpreters for our community.” Rasmussen and fellow graduate student Vicki Brown organized the scholarship fund after an anonymous donor gave $5,000 to the department. Jeffrey MacNutt, the development officer for the humanities department, said the community contributed to the final scholarship amount. “The real unique nature of this scholarship is that it has literally been contributions from everyone

within the community, which is rare. Endowments are generally big contributions from families in their own honor. This is just a labor of love … very grassroots,” MacNutt said. The scholarship is named for Phyllis Perrin Wilcox, who began the signed language interpreting program at UNM in 1983. Wilcox said Haynes received the scholarship for her scholastic achievements and commitment to the UNM sign language program. Haynes is a member of the Phi Betta Kappa Honor Society, is fluent in French and maintains a 4.0 GPA. She also attended the Registry of Interpreters for the Deaf Conference this summer. Haynes said her love for sign language began at age 14, when she volunteered at a camp for individuals with special needs. She said some of the campers were hard of hearing, so she used basic sign language to communicate with them. Hundreds of students register each semester for sign language courses, but Wilcox said only 15 students are accepted each year to enter the program as signed language interpretation majors. The scholarship will be awarded on a yearly basis — so long as there are enough donations — to a signed language interpreting student, based on his or her academic achievement, service to the community and ethical values.

Do UNM’s new security measures make you feel safer about using Wi-Fi on campus?
Daily Lobo asks you: “I guess so. My Internet back home in New Castle, which is two hours north of Sydney, Australia, did exactly the same thing. We had to log in using our identification number and a password, so I’m used to it.”
“It really doesn’t. I mean anyone can still connect by getting a student’s code. It’s kind of inconvenient because every time you get on you have to type in all your stuff, and I just want to be able to get on and do what I’m doing and just get off.”

Vanessa Sanchez / Daily Lobo Student Veterans President Zach Mutchler, right, speaks during the first ASUNM meeting at the SUB on Monday. Mutchler proposed that UNM take Veterans Day off. Veterans Day, but he wants to get the support of the student body beforehand. He said Veterans Day is one of the most important days to the 1,300 veterans enrolled at UNM. â€œWe surveyed every veteran we could at this University â€” which was close to 600 â€” and their No. 1 biggest issue was not having Veterans Day observance,â€? Mutchler said. Alyssa Rivera, a senator in her first term, voted against the resolution because, while she supports observing Veterans Day, she said the resolution itself was not specific. â€œI thought that it was a really good resolution and I thought that Veterans Day should definitely be recognized,â€? she said. â€œBut I didnâ€™t like that the resolution didnâ€™t contain a practical solution as to where that day off should go.â€?
The resolution suggested using a snow day, but didnâ€™t have a specific method for determining a day that would be observed. Rivera also said she voted â€œnoâ€? because of the exaggerated phrasing of the bill. â€œI felt that some of the language was a little too poetic for my taste. It was very flowery,â€? she said. â€œThere were parts of the resolution that implied that the â€˜true heroesâ€™ of the United States are the veterans and, while I do see them as heroes, I donâ€™t know if the entire student population would agree that they are the ultimate heroes of this country.â€? Third-term senator Laz Cardenas, the Student Veterans ASUNM representative, said he had no issues with the billâ€™s language. â€œAn important matter such as Veterans Day â€” I thought that it was justified,â€? he said.
Since GPSA passed the resolution, Mutchler said his organization didnâ€™t expect ASUNM to send it back to committee. â€œThere were a few of the senators who didnâ€™t like the wording on the resolution, which is a little strange to us because GPSA passed it without any questions or problems whatsoever,â€? he said.

She said the new building has exposed beams, supports and wires so that students can see firsthand how the inside of a building looks, instead of relying on paper designs. â€œThe building itself is a learning experience,â€? she said. Schluntz said he couldnâ€™t have undertaken the George Pearl Hall project by himself. â€œWeâ€™ve had wonderful support from the students, faculty and staff,â€? he said. â€œThe building is a result of that support.â€? Raybon said Schluntz is so busy that some people get the idea he doesnâ€™t want to interact
with students. â€œItâ€™s not that he doesnâ€™t want to stop and talk,â€? she said. â€œHeâ€™s running around because heâ€™s actually busy and concerned and trying.â€? Schluntz emphasized the continued importance of architecture in studentsâ€™ everyday lives. â€œEverything that you and everyone else does is informed or shaped by, influenced by the built environment,â€? he said. â€œClassrooms, apartment buildings - it has an immediate, direct impact. The ability to want to come here. Itâ€™s the power of design, really, to help shape peopleâ€™s lives and make it possible to enrich their lives.â€?

On Tuesday, James N. Post wrote a letter to the Daily Lobo saying everyone who wants to rid the U.S. of benefits that smack of socialism should also be willing to cut health care for veterans. Readers on DailyLobo.com responded with a lengthy debate. Mateo Posted Tuesday “First off, picking on veterans is a cheap shot to try and stir the pot. The only reason you have the right to post crap like this is because some veteran decided that your right to spout this junk was worth more than his life. Second, not every veteran gets the benefits you’re describing. Hell, I know a veteran who was honorably discharged after four years of service (including two years overseas), and he’s not even eligible to join the American Legion …” Matt Posted Tuesday “That’s cute James. I remember when I had my first beer. In all seriousness, I hope you don’t actually believe what you wrote. If you want to know what true propaganda is, then look no further than your own writing. It seems like you’re under the impression that anything socialized is evil. I guess we should get rid of the police, public schools and the fire department. Hell, let’s just do away with the government while we are at it.” James Nathan Post Posted Tuesday “The anti-VA position is logically coherent, but is something like an extension to absurdum, a heightening of the contrast to make a point. People object, saying, ‘The veteran deserves it.’ My response is then, ‘OK, you’re right, some people should get health care paid for, including veterans. But why only veterans? What makes vets so special? Why not others who risk as much, or others for other reasons? Is socialism really such a bad idea as to call for the elimination of all socialistic programs?’” Silent Bob Posted Tuesday “This morning, I was awoken by my alarm clock, powered by electricity generated by the public power monopoly regulated by the Department of Energy. I then took a shower in the clean water provided by the municipal water utility. After that, I turned on the TV to one of the FCC-regulated channels to see what the National Weather Service of the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration determined the weather was going to be like using satellites designed, built and launched by the National Aeronautics and Space Administration. I watch this while eating my breakfast of Department of Agriculture-inspected food and taking the drugs which have been determined to be safe by the Food and Drug Administration … I then log on to the Internet, which was developed by the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency, and post on FreeRepublic.com and Fox News forums about how socialism in medicine is bad because the government can’t do anything right …” Visit DailyLobo.com to join the discussion.

Third of budget goes to granny by Jessica Gregory UWire
Facts and figures about the national government’s deficit are often cited, but few understand the burden these shortfalls place on our generation. Whenever a government’s expenses exceed revenue, it makes up the deficit by selling bonds. Businesses suffer when investors buy government debt instead of investing in future productivity, and taxpayers — who pay back the debt plus interest — face an even higher bill. The deficit will be about $1.58 trillion in this fiscal year, according to official projections. To put that number in perspective, $1.58 trillion could buy every man, woman and child in America 52 iPhones or finance 1,580,000,000,000 trips to the Wendy’s dollar menu. In 2008, the U.S. gross domestic product — a measure of all final goods and services produced — was roughly $14 trillion. Even after taxation, the federal government will have to borrow a sum roughly equal to 10 percent of our nation’s production to make ends meet. And all that’s for just this year. Each year’s deficit is thrown atop the
ext. 131 ext. 133 ext. 127
a particularly underrepresented special interest group — the unborn. The nation’s debt is not unbelievably large because of any particular political party or past president. We have a soul-crushing debt because the dying have no reason not to feast on the unborn — metaphorically. As economist John Maynard Keynes famously said, “In the long run we are all dead.” Now, 86 years later, Keynes is dead, and I’m stuck living in his long run. We came into this world under a crushing burden which is only growing heavier. Our generation will pay for the fiscal irresponsibility of our elders. If you don’t, men with guns will come to your house and take you to jail. We should certainly call for change, but we shouldn’t have hope about the nation’s fiscal future. Our elders sacrificed our generation’s livelihood before we could have a say in the matter. Remember that when it’s time to buy grandma a Christmas present.

DNA by chance impossible by Babu G. Ranganathan Daily Lobo guest columnist
Haven’t you ever asked yourself how you got your nose, eyes, ears, fingers, toes and everything else? How did your DNA bring all this about? Before we answer that question, we need to know just a few simple things about DNA. DNA is the abbreviated name for the genetic code and it is exactly that — a code. It is a molecular string of chemical information. DNA is located in the nucleus of our cells and is made up of smaller molecules called nucleic acids. These smaller molecules in DNA are arranged in a sequence, just like the

previous deficits to produce the national debt. That number, more than $11.8 trillion, is something to give our generation pause. Although the state’s supporters like to point to the poor’s plight, the majority of the budget has nothing to do with America’s low-income individuals. Medicaid and other need-based entitlements account for about 7 percent of the federal budget. Meanwhile, less than 1 percent of the budget is dedicated to foreign aid — in theory, money sent to help the poorest of the poor. The Feds do not transfer much money to the less fortunate in America, and they hardly transfer any to the truly unfortunate overseas. They give to the aging. Medicare and Social Security account for 33 percent of the U.S. federal budget. The elderly lived through some of the most prosperous periods in American history. Their scientific, economic and cultural advances created a better world, and they got to enjoy the fruits of their labor. But that wasn’t enough. When an interest group has votes, it has the power to steal resources from the less politically represented. The baby boomers used debts and deficits to take money from

letters in a sentence. The sequence of these nucleic acids tells the cells of our body how to build our nose, eyes, hands, feet, and everything else. If the sequence for a particular trait isn’t in our genetic code, then our bodies won’t build it. The material our body uses to build new cells comes from the food we eat. Food is the lumber and bricks the body uses to build new cells. When food is digested and broken down to its basic amino acids, the various amino acids are then rearranged in a certain sequence to form cells that make up the various tissues and organs. In what sequence these amino acids come together is determined by the sequence of the molecules in DNA. When scientists study genes, they are studying segments of the DNA molecule. No one has shown that DNA can come into existence by chance. It takes DNA to get DNA. Yes, it is true that the individual molecules that make up DNA have been shown to be able to come into existence by chance. But it has never been shown that those individual molecules can come together into a sequence by chance to form the genetic code. The mathematical odds of even the simplest DNA molecule coming into existence by chance is comparable to a monkey
typing the sequence of all the letters and words in a dictionary by randomly hitting keys on a computer keyboard. Genetic information, like any other information, doesn’t happen by chance. Therefore, it’s far more logical to believe that the genetic similarities between all forms of life are because of a common designer or genetic engineer (God) who designed similar functions for similar purposes in all the various forms of life. Microevolution, or variations within a biological kind such as the varieties of dogs, cats, horses and cows, is science, but not macroevolution. Macroevolution, variations across kinds, is not science but faith. Science cannot prove the existence of God, but neither can science prove that we are here by chance. Both sides of the evolution/intelligent design controversy should have the opportunity to present their scientific arguments to students. No one is being forced to believe in God, so there is no real violation of separation of church and state. Babu G.

Outgoing UN official says war in Sudan over
Friday, September 4, 2009 / Page 5
by Sarah El Deeb
The Associated Press CAIRO â€” The outgoing U.N. peacekeeping chief in Sudanâ€™s Darfur region said the world should no longer consider the long-running conflict a war after a sharp decline in violence and deaths over the past year. Activists and Darfur residents disagree, and the comments by Rodolphe Adada heightened anxiety that there will be less international focus on resolving the root problems in the troubled region. U.N. peacekeepers have recorded a sharp decline in fatalities from violence. There were 16 deaths in June, compared to an average 130 deaths per month last year. â€œWe can no longer talk of a big conflict, of a war in Darfur,â€? Adada told The Associated Press this week before stepping down as head of the joint United Nations-African Union peacekeeping mission in Darfur. â€œI think now everybody understands it. We can no longer speak of this issue. It is over,â€? he said. The Darfur conflict began in February 2003 when ethnic African rebels took up arms against the Arabdominated Sudanese government in Khartoum, claiming discrimination and neglect. U.N. officials say the war has claimed at least 300,000 lives from violence, disease and displacement. They say some 2.7 million people were driven from their homes and at its height, in 2003-2005, it was called the worldâ€™s worst humanitarian crisis. President Barack Obamaâ€™s new
Xinhua / AP Photo In this July 17, 2008, file photo released by Chinaâ€™s Xinhua News Agency, Joint AU-UN Special Representative Rodolphe Adada, left, greets members of the Chinese troops after their arrival in Nyala, the capital of South Darfur, Sudan. envoy to Sudan, Scott Gration, caused an outcry in June when he said the violence in Darfur no longer amounted to genocide and then suggested easing sanctions against the Sudanese government. Adding to the complications, violence is on the rise on another front in semi-autonomous southern Sudan, more than four years after a 2005 peace accord ended a separate 21-year civil war that left 2 million people dead. If violence there escalates, it could potentially overshadow Darfur. Adada said the decline in violence in Darfur is an opportune time
to push forward a peace process that so far has had no success. During a visit to Darfur in July, Gration appealed to refugees in one of the largest camps to return to their villages. He also suggested easing sanctions against Sudan, telling a Senate hearing that month there was no longer any evidence to support the U.S. designation of Sudan as a state sponsor of terrorism. His comments were welcomed in Sudan, which has always maintained the death toll in Darfur was greatly exaggerated and said it was fighting a counterinsurgency, not a war.
But they irked activists and Darfur residents, who fear the U.S. is easing its pressure on Sudanâ€™s government. â€œThe perception â€Ś that if it is not getting worse â€Ś it (must be) getting better is something that takes the wind out of the sails of international action,â€? said John Prendergast, one of former President Bill Clintonâ€™s point men on Sudan. Prendergast says the new phase of violence in Darfur is a â€œbreaking spiritsâ€? campaign, which seeks to demoralize the refugees. The Darfur rebels have also dismissed Adadaâ€™s declaration, saying
government forces were still operating in the region and violence against civilians continues in the camps. â€œThere are no more people on their land to kill,â€? said Abdelwahid Elnur, exiled leader of one of the oldest rebel groups, the Sudan Liberation Army, whose fighters are largely stationed in a central mountain hideout. Adada, a former Congolese foreign minister, warned there could be a return to violence, because the root causes of the conflict remain. He urged the Darfur rebels to negotiate.

Needle attacks reignite ethnic conflict in China by Christopher Bodeen The Associated Press
URUMQI, China — Thousands marched through this city in western China on Thursday after a series of stabbings with hypodermic needles further unnerved residents already jittery over deadly rioting between Han Chinese and Muslim Uighurs. More than 10,000 people, mostly from the Han Chinese majority, took to the streets, demanding increased security and punishment for those behind the July riots. Demonstrators said police beat some protesters, but there were no major clashes. By nightfall authorities had cordoned off the city center, blocking intersections with patrol cars, and disconnected mobile phone textmessaging services. Paramilitary police with shields, sticks and submachine guns sealed off People’s Square, where demonstrators had shouted down politicians. About 100 green trucks parked on the plaza. “Everybody is angry,” said a female receptionist surnamed Ma at the Hong Xin Hotel, next to People’s Square. “Two months have passed, and the hooligans still haven’t been brought to justice. So many innocent people lost their lives. They should not die in vain.” The resort to mass demonstrations to air grievances is likely to further unnerve the Chinese leadership — already grappling with tens of thousands of increasingly large and violent protests every year — just as it prepares for a nationwide celebration of 60 years of communist rule on Oct. 1. But the unrest shows how unsettled Urumqi remains despite continued high security since 197 people were killed in the worst communal violence to hit Xinjiang province in more than a decade. The rioting began in Urumqi, the provincial capital, on July 5 when a protest by Muslim Uighurs spiraled out of control, and Uighurs attacked Han Chinese. Days later, Han vigilantes tore through Uighur neighborhoods to retaliate. State media reports said that most of the victims of the string of needle stabbings were Han Chinese, suggesting these attacks were also
ethnically motivated. Fears of AIDS could also be adding to concerns. Xinjiang has the highest rate of infections in China, with about 25,000 cases of HIV reported last year — fueled by needle-sharing among drug users. The first needle stabbing occurred Aug. 20, according to a report Thursday on Xinjiang TV. Rumors about multiple attacks swirled, and on Wednesday shopkeepers in two commercial areas shuttered their stores early to protest plunging business as panicky residents stayed off the streets, said a local newspaper editor, who asked that his name not be used because he feared angering the government officials who ultimately control his newspaper. All told, 476 people have sought treatment for stabbings, though only 89 had obvious signs of being pricked and no deaths, infections or poisonings occurred, the TV report said. The official Xinhua News Agency said 21 people had been detained. While none of the reports gave a motive, the TV report said almost all the victims, 433, were Han Chinese, with the rest from eight other ethnic groups. During Thursday’s march, protesters caught and nearly beat a woman who supposedly stabbed someone in the crowd until police intervened, Xinhua reported. Protesters focused their anger on officials’ failure to provide protection and start trials for any of the 1,200 people the government said it has arrested or detained over July’s rioting. “There are so many security forces deployed here, yet they’re incapable of protecting us,” said protester Zhao Jianzhuang, who joined the march near People’s Square. Given the tight nationwide security for the October anniversary, the protest underscored the difficulties Beijing faces in satisfying a public increasingly empowered by the nation’s rapid economic transformation but locked out of the authoritarian political order. Large, often violent protests occur daily, with 87,000 in 2005, the last time figures were published. Yet the government has offered few systemic changes to curb the corruption, misrule and a perceived unfair gap between rich and poor that fuels most local protests.

Junfu Han / Daily Lobo Head coach Mike Locksley and his team gather at midfield after a recent practice. The Lobos will head to College Station, Texas, to face Texas A&M on Saturday.
Lobos plan to be in game, not at it by Ryan Tomari Daily Lobo
Mike Locksley is an optimist. He doesn’t appear at all worried that the UNM football team is headed for College Station, Texas, this weekend to face Texas A&M, a team that beat the Lobos 28-22 in Albuquerque last year. This doesn’t seem to faze him, nor does starting quarterback Donovan Porterie’s past performance. Last season, Porterie threw two first-quarter interceptions. One was returned for a touchdown, and by the end of the first quarter it was 14-0 in favor of Texas A&M.

That was last year, Locksley said. “I envision Donovan having a great game for us,” Locksley said. “I think we need to get behind Donovan because he has earned the right to be our starting quarterback and we have been really pleased with the way he has progressed and his leadership.” Locksley said he hopes his optimistic attitude rubs off on his players. “That is what we have sold our guys on,” he said. “I like to have tempo and energy. I like to talk about energy a lot.” And the Lobos will need plenty of it come Saturday against the Aggies. “That’s what college football is all about,” Locksley said. “To play at Kyle Field with all its tradition and pageantry — it’s a challenge.” However, the first-year head coach doesn’t want his players to make the challenge bigger than it is and get lost in the atmosphere of 80,000-plus roaring fans. Instead, he said he wants his team to be “in the game, not at the game.” “Going into an opening game like this, most of the focus has to be on us, because so many times players start talking and worry about winning the game,” Locksley said. “As I told the team yesterday, winning is a by-product of preparation.” Aggies head coach Mike Sher-
UNM vs. Texas A&M
College Station, Texas Saturday 5 p.m. man, however, has a different view on the game. He’s more focused on what the Lobos will do, as opposed to what his team will do to stop the Lobos. “It’s good that we have seen them before, because they have a lot of the same players,” Sherman told AggieAthletics.com during a news conference Monday. “But they are going to be different from the team we saw last year. So, we are going to have to respect them and take care of business.” Locksley strays away from any negativity, instead focusing on whether the Lobos are mentally and emotionally prepared. “We have to play with great effort, which we can control and not beat ourselves,” Locksley said. “We have very little room for error on the offensive and defensive side of the ball. We have to take care of the football.”
White Sox vs. Cubs loses luster as seasons flop by Rick Gano
The Associated Press CHICAGO — Rookie Carlos Torres threw seven crisp innings, Dewayne Wise made a great throw to cut down a runner at the plate and the White Sox beat the Cubs 5-0 Thursday in a makeup game between two city rivals whose seasons have gone awry. Torres (1-0), recalled from the minors two days ago, earned his first major league win in his third career start. He allowed five hits, walked none and struck out six. Wise, whose highlight-reel catch preserved Mark Buehrle’s perfect game back in July, made a strong throw from right field to preserve a 1-0 White Sox lead in the seventh. Jake Fox tried to score from second
on Jeff Baker’s single but Wise delivered the ball to A.J. Pierzynski, who was able to tag the sliding Fox for the second out. Baker took second on the play, but Torres fanned Koyie Hill to end the threat. The White Sox added two in the eighth, taking advantage of a key Cubs error. Gordon Beckham scored from first when left fielder Alfonso Soriano missed Pierzynski’s fly. Paul Konerko followed with an RBI single to make it 3-0 and chase Ryan Dempster (8-8). Soriano had a cortisone injection in his sore left knee Sunday and had missed three games earlier in the week. After his miscue, what appeared to be a T-shirt came flying out of the left-field bleachers.

UNM soccer expects good fight in first home game
Friday, September 4, 2009 / Page 9
by Nathan Farmer Daily Lobo
The UNM men’s soccer team opens up its home schedule on Saturday against No. 22 San Francisco. “It’s an exciting home-opener,” Senior Justin Davis said. “We are all really excited, especially against a nationally ranked opponent.” The teams are evenly matched. They enter Saturday’s contest from impressive victories in their first games of the season. UNM beat No. 21 Saint Louis 3-0 on Tuesday in Saint Louis, Mo, while San Francisco is coming from an imposing 4-1 home win over University of Missouri-Kansas City. A penalty kick by Simon Ejdemyr just before halftime gave UNM the lead and the Lobos never looked back. Davis scored five minutes into the second half, with his first goal of the season, before P.J. Wilson scored his first goal of the season off a cross from James Urbany. Lobo goalkeeper Justin Fite posted his first shutout of the season and had four saves for the Lobos. “We went into an opponents’ field and performed really well against a good team,” head coach Jeremy Fishbein said. “We did everything right, both offensively and defensively, and deserved the win.” Davis said that road win should give the Lobos momentum
Junfu Han / Daily Lobo Justin Davis races toward the ball. The Lobos open up home play against San Francisco on Saturday. The Lobos are 1-0 on the season. heading into their game against San Francisco. “A performance like that, especially in the first game of the season, only helps make your team better, and prepared us well to play against another good team this weekend,” he said. UNM is 3-2 against the Dons and won the last time these two teams played in 2007, beating them 2-0 in San Francisco. “They are a team very similar to us and are coming off a good result too,” Fishbein said. “San Francisco has some very good attackers that we are
going to have to look out for.” Counter attacking will be key for both teams, since the UNM soccer field is a smaller than most college fields. But attacking on the break with speed and numbers, before the lanes get clogged, will be pivotal. Fishbein said he plans on starting the game with a traditional 4-4-2, but things could change as the game progresses. “We may drop a midfielder deeper in and attack on the counter, or if things are going well we may be able push more people forward,” he said.

Soriano also was booed loudly when he struck out to end the game. The makeup of a June 16 rainout featured two defending division champs whose playoff hopes have faded greatly. It was the latest makeup for an interleague game since Kansas City played Arizona on Sept. 4, 2003. The Cubs entered six games out of the NL wild card with four teams in front of them. They remained 10½ games back of the Central-leading Cardinals, who lost 4-3 to the Brewers. After a disastrous road trip, the White Sox returned to town in third, seven games back of the Tigers in the AL Central. “I never thought we were going to collapse in two weeks the way that we did, because if you look at the lineup every day it’s a pretty good lineup,” White Sox manager Ozzie Guillen said. Chris Getz singled with two outs in the second and went to second when Fox — subbing at first base for Derrek Lee — dropped a pickoff attempt from Dempster for an error. Alexei Ramirez then delivered an RBI single into left field. Looking like a team that went 2-8 on a 10-game trip to Boston, New York and Minnesota, the White Sox ran themselves out of a potential big inning in the first. Leadoff hitter Scott Podsednik drove a ball into the gap in right center that would have been a triple, but the ball got lost in the ivy and became a ground-rule double. Beckham then hit a comebacker to Dempster and Podsednik got caught between second and third. Dempster threw to third baseman Aramis Ramirez, who ran Podsednik back to second and tagged him. Beckham, who took off for second, was tagged out by second baseman Baker in a rundown to complete the double play.

DAILY LOBO new mexico
by Isaac Avilucea Daily Lobo
Perhaps this year’s season-opening radio broadcast won’t be as hectic as last year’s for Lobo football play-by-play announcer Scott Galetti. Don’t count on it, though. While nothing can compare to last year’s family crisis, Galetti will have to deal with some testy waters this season, too. For one, most — if not all — Lobo fans will be counting on Galetti and new color commentator Kole McKamey to guide them through Saturday’s game against Texas A&M, which isn’t televised. Comparatively, though, that’s cake to Galetti, considering what he went through last season. The night before Galetti’s opening act as play-by-play announcer, his brother, Geoffrey, was admitted to the hospital, apparently suffering from a stroke. Galetti said that during the broadcast his mind drifted to his brother’s bedside. Between commercial breaks, he raced to the phone and checked in with family members, who kept him updated on his brother’s condition. Fortunately, everything turned out fine and the doctors determined that Geoffrey hadn’t suffered a stroke. “He was fine, but I didn’t find out

McKamey, who’s still cutting his own cloth, is about as green as a sapling when it comes to radio. He has no previous experience. Even so, McKamey is supremely level-headed about Saturday’s broadcast. He said he’s more focused than nervous. “I really want to be able to paint a clear picture of what’s going on and why each team is doing what they’re doing,” McKamey said. “What was the coach thinking when he called that play? What was the player thinking when he threw that pass?” If anything, McKamey said he’s worried about how he’ll deliver his talking points — not what he’ll say. “I need to get my point across clearly, quickly,” he said. “You can’t spend too much time on one play.

And I have a really bad habit while watching their scrimmages: I’ll kind of go, ‘Oooh, ahhh, good pass.’ Can’t do that on the radio.” Luckily, he won’t be asked to bring the boat to shore all by himself. He has captain Galetti, who will prod him when necessary. And he has Galetti’s advice in his mental rolodex: Pick your spots. “You can’t be afraid of dead air,” McKamey said. “If I don’t have anything to add color to, then it’s better not to talk at all.” If that’s the only thing Galetti has to worry about, he’s not troubled at all. “I’m very relaxed,” Galetti said. “This is my second season. I’m looking for good things on my end. I’m excited to be working with Kole. We’ve watched games together on Texas A&M, and I think we’ll be prepared.” They should be — as long as nothing unexpected happens. But in the radio microwave, where things heat up by the second, you just never know.
