Students to aid health care in Central America by Alex Borowski Daily Lobo
Amid the uproar over health care in the U.S., two medical student delegations are traveling to El Salvador, and, for the first time, Honduras, to provide basic medical aid. Graduate student Megan Fitzpatrick founded the International Medical Delegation program, which makes annual trips to El Salvador, while she was an undergraduate student three summers ago. Lilliam Aguilar, who was part of last year’s delegation, created a UNM branch delegation of Operation Smile, a children’s charity treating facial deformities such as cleft lips and cleft palates all around the world, which will travel to Honduras. The two programs are accepting applications until Friday. The IMD program is accepting 10 delegates and the Operation Smile program is accepting up to 14 people. Christian Garcia, president of the IMD 2010 delegation, said the program’s aim is to help the impoverished population of El Salvador. “Our main focus is to provide medical aid and health education to rural, underserved areas in El Salvador,” he said. According to the UNM IMD Web site, the state of La Paz in El Salvador has only five doctors for a population of 30,000, and the average El Salvadorian family lives on $3 a day, with little to no access to medical professionals. Students raise funds for the trip through much of the year and work with the Association for the Promotion of Human Rights for the
Children of El Salvador to finance the program. Fundraisers in the past have included concerts with local bands, such as Asper Kourt and Le Chat Lunatique, and the Miles for Medicine run, with more than 160 participants. Garcia said the delegation is helping El Salvadorian locals and doctors secure clean drinking water to improve the country’s overall health for the first time. “(We) will aim to provide more biofilters to more households and explore other ways of facilitating clean water in the rural areas we visit,” Garcia said. Students who participate come from a range of backgrounds and majors, from pre-medical to political science, from chemical engineering to anthropology, Garcia said. Although the program is still young, its impact on UNM students who participate is great, said Junior Chris Plaman. Plaman went on the trip during his freshman and sophomore years. “It makes you more aware of the global situation and it makes you more aware that not everyone has the same situation as you have …,” he said. “It teaches you to appreciate the little things in life that other people take for granted.” Loren Wohletz, who went on the trip his senior year, said he would recommend the program to other students. “If you have any doubts or hesitation on whether or not to go … just do it or at least apply,” he said. “I had no regrets, and it’s one of the coolest things I did as part of the

The Albuquerque Police Department Party Patrol was on the lookout during tailgate parties on Saturday and issued six citations for underage drinking, said Lt. Harold Medina, APD party patrol coordinator. Officers were checking for underage alcohol drinking, and APD sent out an e-mail to all UNM students on Friday warning that law enforcement would be at the next three games checking IDs and issuing citations to drinkers under 21. The Party Patrol issued six citations for minors in possession of alcohol during pregame tailgating Saturday, Medina said. Twelve officers from the Party Patrol were at the tailgate, he said. Medina said the Party Patrol will continue to come to future tailgate parties to enforce drinking laws. “I think that the University opens themselves up to a lot of liability if they don’t put their foot down about underage drinking,” he said. Medina said Party Patrol didn’t start coming to tailgates because of any specific incident, but he knows that there have been many problems that involved alcohol at tailgates. “I do know that in the past there have been fights out here because

Obama delivers warning to Wall Street by Ben Feller
The Associated Press NEW YORK — President Barack Obama sternly warned Wall Street Monday against returning to the sort of reckless and unchecked behavior that threatened the nation with a second Great Depression. Even as he noted the U.S. economy and financial system were pulling out of a downward spiral, Obama warned financial titans on the first anniversary of the Lehman Brothers collapse that they could not count on any more bailouts. He credited his administration and the $787 billion stimulus package rammed through Congress in the first days after he took office for pulling the country back from the brink. “We can be confident that the storms of the past two years are beginning to break,” he said. And even as the economy begins a “return to normalcy,” Obama said, “normalcy cannot lead to complacency.”
Daily Lobo volume 114
Nevertheless, Obama said, “Instead of learning the lessons of Lehman and the crisis from which we are still recovering, they are choosing to ignore them.” His tough message warned the financial community to “hear my words: We will not go back to the days of reckless behavior and unchecked excess at the heart of this crisis, where too many were motivated only by the appetite for quick kills and bloated bonuses.” Obama spoke at Federal Hall in the heart of Wall Street before an audience that included members of the financial community, lawmakers and top administration officials. Afterwards, he joined former President Bill Clinton for lunch at a New York restaurant as the White House announced Obama would address the annual meeting of the Clinton Global Initiative Sept. 22 while in New York for the United Nations General Assembly meeting. In marking his determination to prevent a repeat of the crisis that nearly brought down the global
financial system last fall, Obama said he was attacking the problem on several broad fronts, including asking Congress to approve new rules to protect consumers and a new Consumer Financial Protection Agency to enforce those rules. He also called for the closure of regulator loopholes and overlap that “were at the heart of the crisis” because they left key officials without “the authority to take action.” At the Pittsburgh G-20 economic meeting later this month, Obama said the U.S. will focus on ways “to spur global demand but also to address the underlying problems that caused such a deep and lasting global recession.” Obama and others seeking ways to better monitor the financial system and to police the products banks sell to consumers have been opposed by lobbyists, lawmakers and turf-protecting regulators. Mergers and sales of banks have consolidated lending power in even fewer hands. And those large firms still bet far more than the capital they have on hand. Yet regulations have not moved.

as if another collapse is obviously imminent. On Capitol Hill, Sen. Judd Gregg, R-N.H., said the administration deserves “considerable credit” for acting to stabilize the financial system, but he warned that Congress should not overreact in approving new regulations.

Hispanic astronaut an idol in Mexico by Julie Watson
The Associated Press MEXICO CITY — Spaceman Jose Hernandez said Monday the United States needs to legalize its undocumented immigrants — a rare public stand for a U.S. astronaut on a political hot-button issue. Mexicans have hung on every word of NASA’s first astronaut to
tweet in Spanish — as Astro_Jose — since the son of migrants embarked on his two-week, 5.7-million-mile mission to the international space station, which ended Friday. And they’re still listening to him now that he is back on Earth. During a telephone interview with Mexico’s Televisa network, Hernandez pushed for U.S. immigration reform — a key issue for Mexico that has been stalled in Washington
amid fierce debate. “The American economy needs them,” said Hernandez, 47, a California native who toiled in the cucumber, sugar beet and tomato fields alongside his Mexican-born parents. “I believe it’s only fair to find a way to legalize them and give them an opportunity to work openly, so they can also retire in a
“We expected them to issue more citations, but there were only six,” Haarhues said. “Maybe it worked — we’ll see how it goes for the rest of the season.” Medina said the officers avoid issuing citations in most circumstances, since their officers don’t have a citation quota to meet. APD encourages students to cooperate with officers and have fun without alcohol, he said. “As long as kids are cooperating with us and working with us and not lying, they are just going to receive a citation,” Medina said. “A citation is in lieu of arrest. It is our goodwill effort not to take them to jail.” Student Bridgette Madrid said she
attended the tailgate parties for two hours, and the low number of citations reflects the amount of underage drinking she saw. “I didn’t really see a lot of underage drinking at the tailgate, because the people that I went with were under 21, and we weren’t drinking,” she said. “From what I saw, I think that six citations is correct.” Madrid said the e-mail might have prevented underage students from drinking. “I think that when people got the e-mail about Party Patrol being there, they were nervous to drink, so I think it definitely stopped a lot of people,” she said.

Tailgating from PAGE 1 of underage people drinking alcohol,” Medina said. “There have been problems at times because of alcohol consumption.” Lt. Robert Haarhues of the UNM Police Department said there have been issues with underage drinking at tailgates in the past. “I know that two years ago, at the state game, there were a lot of intoxicated kids,” Haarhues said. “Hopefully Party Patrol will keep these younger students from drinking and the older ones from getting in trouble by supplying alcohol to students who aren’t of age.” Haarhues said the low number possibly means students weren’t drinking.

Letters UNM needs to come through on designating smoking areas Editor, In the article “Locations for tobacco use still hazy” in the Sept. 2 Daily Lobo, I noticed a couple errors of definition that I feel obligated to point out. In the article, Pug Burge, chairwoman of the Smoke Free Environment Committee, is quoted as saying, “This whole drive has been about the promotion of a healthy campus.” If she means that by encouraging people not to smoke, then she’s right. However, she is speaking in reference to why the smoking areas are not marked. The areas not being marked leaves a chance that people would be prevented from smoking there. The proper phrasing would be “prevention of smoking on campus.” She later is quoted as saying, “We have been somewhat conservative because we knew that once we identified designated smoking areas, it would be difficult to take them away.” She is right in the sense that when something is “designated,” it is hard to take away. That’s implied in the definition of “designated.” However, if a designated area is not marked or “pointed out,” it remains undesignated. I am not defending smoking. I am defending linguistics. When someone uses words out of context, the integrity and intent suffer. I wish to grant the same courtesy to Burge that SHAC Health Education Manager Jessica Taylor Spurrier extended to smokers when she said, “This isn’t about … being mean to smokers.” Similarly, I am not trying to be mean to Burge over semantics. I just want a “promotion” of a healthy vocabulary. Disgusting as the habit may be, UNM has stated in its policy that there will be 12 designated smoking areas for up to the next five years. I encourage the head of the Smoke Free Environment Committee to carry out its implicit policy. Here’s a little “info-tainment” game: When people say they will do something and intentionally do not, they are said to be a) lying, b) unqualified to do their job, c) political or d) all of the above. Answer in the next issue. Jason Liddell UNM student
Americans superficial in treatment of Muslims Editor, The Daily Lobo printed an article last week regarding the difficulty that Muslims undergo during Sept. 11. I must say that I am embarrassed to be an American. I still find it hard to believe that we despise an entire group of people based on events we saw on television. This shows how superficial and blind we are. Furthermore, I find it appalling that we Americans think we should be free from bombing when much of the rest of the world experiences Armageddon on a daily basis. Genell Burns UNM student

Contraceptives: finding the right fit by Peggy Spencer
Daily Lobo columnist The following questions showed up in the Ask Dr. Peg box in the SHAC lobby. The first is from a man and the second is from a woman: 1. Why aren’t there more contraceptive options for men? 2. What is the best type of birth control that is most effective and won’t hurt your body? So, you want to have sex but don’t want to make babies. Join the ranks of most students, who are too busy studying to become parents. When you make a baby, it’s called conception. To avoid conception, you use contraception, or birth control. It takes two people to make a baby, so it makes sense to look at both partners when considering contraception. But before I talk about how to prevent it, let’s review how it happens in the first place. If you didn’t sleep through middle school health class, you can skip the next part and go straight to the list. How does a baby get made? The usual way is for a man and a woman to have vaginal intercourse. When the man ejaculates, fluid travels from the prostate gland and testes through a tube called the vas deferens and out

the tip of the penis. The fluid contains sperm, millions of them, all with one thing on their wiggly little minds: hooking up with an egg. The egg, of course, comes from the woman. About once a month, she releases a single egg from one of her ovaries. Once that happens, it takes a few days for the egg to saunter down the fallopian tubes, through the uterus and out the vagina. During those few days, the woman is fertile, which means she could get pregnant if one of those wigglies hits the mark. You can intervene in this process in a number of places. 1. Prevent the egg from being released. This is how hormonal methods for women work. In order to ovulate, or release an egg, a woman’s body creates certain hormonal fluctuations. If those fluctuations are flattened out, which is what happens when you add hormones from the outside, no egg gets released. The hormones used are estrogen and progesterone. Hormonal methods include the birth control pill (take one a day), the birth control patch (apply one a week), the vaginal ring (insert one a month), the shot (get one every three months) and the implant (lasts three years). Hormonal methods for women are very reliable in terms of preventing pregnancy but can have side effects that range from annoying to serious. 2. Block the sperm from reaching the egg. The methods that do this are called barrier methods. Male condoms are the most popular. The female condom (picture the inverse of a male condom), diaphragm (a rubber cup that goes in the vagina and covers the cervix, or opening to the uterus) and cervical cap (smaller version of a diaphragm) are also barrier methods. What is nice about barrier methods is that they are temporary, local and help prevent disease. Blocking the union of egg and sperm can also be done on a
permanent basis, with tubal ligation for the woman or vasectomy for the man. 3. Prevent sperm from being released. Since there are millions at a time, and it only takes one to tango with an egg, this has been a more daunting problem. But daunting never stopped science, and there are several prospects in the wings. Hormones work on men, too; testosterone and progesterone combinations look promising for stopping sperm production. A technique called vasal occlusion involves putting a temporary plug in the vas deferens to block the sperm from coming out of the man’s body. Finally, there is a group of techniques involving injections into the vas deferens of chemicals that will scar the tube closed permanently or of polymers that will do a temporary job. As of now, all these methods are in the research stage, leaving condoms and vasectomy the only choices for men. But stay tuned. What is the best method? That has to be answered individually, because the answer depends on you, your body, your partner and your situation. But we can help. Call SHAC at 277-3136 and ask for an appointment to discuss birth control. I think it is useful for couples to come in together, but if you’re not in a relationship or prefer to come in alone, ask for an appointment in men’s health or women’s health.

traditional U.S. system.â€? NASA spokesman James Hartsfield told The Associated Press that Hernandez was expressing his personal views, â€œnot representing NASA, the astronaut office or any NASA organization in his responses.â€? Hernandez said he wished all world leaders and politicians could see the Earth as he has, â€œso they could see our world â€” that really, we are one, that we should work together.â€? â€œWhat surprised me is when I saw the world as one. There were no borders. You couldnâ€™t distinguish between the United States and Mexico,â€? he told Televisa. Hernandezâ€™s success shows why Mexican migrants have risked their lives to cross the U.S. border illegally to work their way out of poverty. Millions in Mexico watched
Hernandezâ€™s mission daily on Televisa, as well as following it on Twitter, where his dispatches appeared in English and Spanish. Hernandez also danced salsa, munched burritos and discussed Mexicoâ€™s World Cup aspirations while floating in space aboard the shuttle Discovery. Past NASA space missions barely got a mention on Mexican newscasts. Hernandezâ€™s trip into orbit came at a time when the American dream for Mexicans and their families is fading. Deportations of illegal immigrants are at record levels, while tightened border security and the recession have caused a historic drop in the number of migrants heading north. The rookie astronaut was one of two Mexican-Americans aboard, marking the first time two Hispanics
have flown in space together. Astronaut Danny Olivas was making his second space flight. Rodolfo Neri Vela, a scientist, was the first Mexican citizen to make it to space, flying aboard the shuttle Atlantis in 1985. Hernandez learned English at age 12, and applied for 12 straight years to become an astronaut before getting picked in 2004. President Felipe CalderĂłn has invited him to dinner at the presidential residence to talk about a future Mexican space agency. Hernandezâ€™s parents are from CalderĂłnâ€™s home state of Michoacan, which has one of Mexicoâ€™s largest populations of migrants in the United States. The Michoacan town of Ticuitaco, meanwhile, wants to build a science museum in his name to inspire others to follow in Hernandezâ€™s footsteps.

FUN & GOOD FOOD • GREAT FOR PARTIES!
3200 Central Ave. • Albuquerque, NM
by William Foreman The Associated Press
GUANGZHOU, China — When the police descend on People’s Park and try to shoo away the gay men gathered there, the men usually scatter to avoid trouble. But recently, about 50 or so confronted five officers who began a sweep and finally forced a police retreat after a heated but nonviolent standoff. “I told them they might not like us, but they can’t stop us from coming here,” said AIDS activist Xiao Mu, who was handing out condoms and pamphlets about safe sex when the police arrived Aug. 25. “We have a right to be in the park.” Though mostly ignored by staterun media, news of the incident in the southern city of Guangzhou — also known as Canton — spread quickly on the Internet and became a hot topic in gay chat forums nationwide. Some in China’s gay community see it as a sign of a new sense of empowerment and a burgeoning awareness of their rights. Members of the community have had minor confrontations with the authorities before in other cities. But usually the disputes play out in a low-key way, without much resistance to sweeps, said Lu Jun, founder of a Beijing-based group that fights discrimination against people with hepatitis B. “I’ve never heard of something like this happening anywhere else,” Lu said about the Guangzhou incident. “I think what happened marks great progress for homosexuals.” Gay activist Dao Dao in Shanghai also applauded those in Guangzhou for standing up for their rights. But he said he doubted it was the right long-term strategy. He favors striving for wider acceptance by being
model citizens, rather than being outspoken and confrontational. “We don’t do any harm to the society. I think that’s the best way to show all the people that we are good people and nothing different,” said Dao Dao, who works in finance and also helps organize gay parties, sporting events and other activities. Gay rights have come a long way since the years just after the 1949 communist revolution, when homosexuality was considered a disease from the decadent West and feudal societies, and gay people were persecuted. China waited until 1997 to decriminalize sodomy. Homosexuality was finally removed from the official list of mental disorders in 2001. But still, there are no widely accepted estimates of the number of gay people in China. This year has already been an eventful one for gay rights. In June, the first gay pride festival was held in Shanghai, the nation’s commercial capital. Later in the month, the five-day Beijing Queer Film Festival was held — an event that police blocked in 2001 and 2005. But as those cities showed signs of being more tolerant, Guangzhou authorities were starting to crack down in People’s Park — a shady oasis of trees and gazebos in the middle of the muggy, traffic-congested city. The park is popular with youngsters who play badminton or retirees practicing their ballroomdancing moves to stereos blasting out tunes like “Sukiyaki,” the Japanese ballad that became a hit in the U.S. in the 1960s. For years, the park has also been a favorite hangout for gay men, especially among the young or working-class who can’t afford the bars and restaurants around town that cater to the community. The men
— many dressed in tank tops and tight jeans — stroll around the park or sit together on a long line of stone benches. Nearby is a public restroom, where some men have sex — a source of much of the friction with the police. On Aug, 25, the police moved in. “They told us, ‘You just leave and don’t come back. This is People’s Park, not Homosexual Park,’” said Xiao, the AIDS activist, who is short and thin and wears large blackframed glasses. “That made me extremely mad. He was saying gays aren’t human.” Xiao said several men quietly walked away, but he stood his ground and people gathered around as he argued with police. Some who left wandered back after a few minutes, and Xiao estimated the crowd swelled to about 100 people, including several heterosexual passers-by who supported him. The police declined to be interviewed. An officer at the front desk of the neighborhood’s main police station grew agitated when asked about the incident, and with a loud voice ordered an Associated Press reporter to leave the station. A park policeman, who declined to give his name because he’s not authorized to speak to the media, denied the police were unfair or discriminating against gays. “The problem is that they do things in the public bathroom. Some of them will grope each other on the park benches,” the policeman said. “People see them doing these things and it makes them feel uncomfortable. Then they call the police.” The officer added that those who have been asked to leave the park or have been taken to the station for questioning are repeat offenders who constantly cause trouble.

Sol Aravena, 37-year-old Chilean and creator of Muza, just moved to Taos to work with Petroglyph Records. Aravena traveled to New Mexico without her original Chilean musicians, but she has teamed up with two musicians from Taos to soothe ears all over the Southwest. She said Muza’s spiritual sound arose from her experience growing up under the dictatorship of Pinochet. While Aravena was a child, artistic expression was stifled in Chile, and Aravena said she wasn’t able to express and explore her interest in music until 1990. Aravena will play in QBar at Hotel Albuquerque in Old Town on Friday at 8 p.m.

I started to play piano when I was very young — about 6 years old. So I was very close to music because of my family. When I left for school I decided to study composition and arrange-

Courtesy of Sam Quinones Sam Quinones will discuss his book Antonio’s Gun and Delfino’s Dream tonight at the Continuing Education Center. He will also read from his work at the UNM Bookstore Wednesday at 3 p.m.
Author brings tales of immigration to UNM by Chris Quintana Daily Lobo
Antonio’s Gun and Delfino’s Dream, by Sam Quinones, is a series of short stories and essays that begins with a break-dancing bricklayer and ends with drug-dealing German Mennonites in Mexico. “It does a good job of presenting the impact of immigration … which is almost entirely south-to-north, but also the impact it has on both sides of the border,” said Wynn Goering, coordinator of the Lobo Reading Experience program.
The book is the first selection for the Lobo Reading Experience, which encourages everyone in the entering freshman class to read the same text, Goering said. “The Lobo Reading Experience is about picking one book for community discussion,” said Bookstore manager Lisa Walden. “It’s a provocative subject chosen to get discussion amongst students.” Goering, vice provost for academic affairs, said the committee wanted a book that had special relevance to UNM and that was accessible for freshmen. “We’re looking for something that would have particular relevance to the Southwest and New Mexico,” Goering said. “Immigration stories are clearly something that border states deal with in a way that’s unique. The second was that it just is a readable book. He’s a good writer.” A journalist for the L.A. Times, Quinones is coming to UNM today to give a lecture at the Continuing Education Conference Center. He will also speak and sign books tomorrow at the UNM Bookstore. Walden said Quinones will read his favorite selections from his book and will take questions from the audience. A smaller series of discussions, hosted by UNM faculty and staff, will promote further insight into the novel’s complicated themes of migration and cultural mixing, Goering said. “We’ve organized a number of different discussion groups around campus, just inviting anyone who has read the book to show up,” he said. Karma Chavez, an assistant professor at UNM and one of the discussion leaders, said the book presents a different perspective on immigration. “I was excited to read it because it’s not a typical immigration story,” Chavez said. “Some of the typical stories we hear in the media are included, but I think (Quinones) really paints an interesting picture of the border we don’t always think of.”

Chavez also researches immigration. She said she will go to the book signing, and she encourages students to do the same. “Many of our families have been impacted by migration, if we are not immigrants ourselves,” she said. “Considering immigration politics in the United States, anyone with brown skin can be compelled into the discourse of immigration based on racial profiling. I think anytime you get the chance to interact with someone who has been face-to-face with all these different dynamics of immigration politics, especially for an extended period of time, I just think it’s an amazing opportunity for students.” Walden, who has met Quinones before, said the author should provide insight to attendees. Goering also suggests the book and the corresponding lectures to all students, even those who may not have experienced the immigration issue firsthand. “Both the book and the level of their (lectures) will be accessible to people, regardless whether you grew up on the border or you’re coming from someplace else, because immigration is a national issue,” he said. “One of the things I want to come out of the program this year, … I want everyone to model together as an academic community, a civic discourse on a subject of interest.”

With every $7.95 tee you buy, you get a FREE TICKET to the LAPD / AP Photo This image provided by the Los Angeles Police Department shows a reward poster on Sept. 11 in Los Angeles. The flyer was issued after the Department said a multimillion-dollar collection of Andy Warhol paintings was stolen from a private home in West Los Angeles.
Warhol print collection nabbed from CA home by Raquel Maria Dillion The Associated Press
A multimillion-dollar collection of Andy Warhol portraits of Muhammad Ali and other sports superstars was stolen from a Los Angeles home, police said Friday. The 11 color screenprints were taken from businessman Richard Weisman’s home sometime between Sept. 2 and 3, said detective Mark Sommer of the Los Angeles Police Department’s art theft detail. Ten of the 40-inch-square portraits feature famous athletes of the 1970s, including golfer Jack Nicklaus, soccer star Pelé and figure skater Dorothy Hamill. The other is of Weisman, likely a commissioned portrait. A $1 million reward was being offered for information leading to the return of the artwork. The original prints were on display in Weisman’s dining room, and his house was locked up. It wasn’t clear exactly when the silk screen paintings were taken or how the thieves got into the home. The theft was discovered by the family’s longtime nanny, who arrived at the home to find the large prints missing from the walls. She immediately went to a neighbor’s to call police, Sommer said. “This was a very clean crime,” Sommer said. “(The home) wasn’t ransacked.” It wasn’t known exactly how much the prints were worth, but Weisman tried to sell the collection in 2002 for $3 million. Weisman’s home contained other valuable artwork, but the rest of his collection was untouched.
“The theft of Warhol’s ‘Athlete Series’ represents a profoundly personal loss to me and my family,” Weisman said in a statement. Weisman, who published a book about his art collection called Picasso to Pop, declined to comment further, saying he did not want to interfere with the investigation. A neighbor saw a maroon van in the driveway of Weisman’s home around the time of the robbery, and police are seeking more information about that, Sommer said. Warhol became internationally famous in the ‘60s for his iconic image of a Campbell’s soup can, his avant-garde films and his parties, which mixed celebrities, artists, intellectuals and other beautiful people at his New York studio called “The Factory.” According to a catalog of Warhol’s work, Weisman commissioned the artist in 1977 to create portraits of sports figures, including Chris Evert, Kareem Abdul Jabbar, Nicklaus, Pelé, Hamill and Ali, said Brenda Klippel, the director of Martin Lawrence Galleries in Los Angeles, which has a large collection of Warhols. “Warhol was always a portraitist and fascinated with anyone of fame or fortune, anyone in the public eye,” Klippel said. “He wanted all of his imagery to be instantly recognizable. If Weisman was in his circle and had the money, he could commission what he wanted.” Detective Don Hrycyk said the weeklong delay in announcing the theft was to allow detectives to confirm the reward and gather descriptions and photographs of the missing artworks.

Leibovitz gets break in loan dispute by Ula Ilnytzky
The Associated Press Annie Leibovitz has won an extension on a $24 million loan in a financial dispute that threatened her rights to her famous images, the two sides involved said in a joint statement Friday. Leibovitz and the company, Art Capital Group, said the 59-year-old photographer had been given more time to repay the loan. The loan’s deadline passed on Tuesday, but both parties had continued to work to resolve the dispute. Neither party would specify the length of the extension. “In these challenging times I am appreciative to Art Capital for all they have done to resolve this matter and for their cooperation and continued support,” Leibovitz said in the statement. Her spokesman, Matthew
Jacquelyn Martin / AP Photo In this Oct. 9, 2007, file photo, photographer Annie Leibovitz speaks at her gallery exhibition about her portrait of Queen Elizabeth II. Leibovitz is in danger of losing the copyright to her vast body of work if she doesn’t pay back a $24 million loan.

retain control of those assets within the context of the loan agreement which shall prevail until satisfied.” The company declined to say how much Leibovitz paid for the company’s rights to act as agent. “It was important to us to be flexible and to work out an agreement with Ms. Leibovitz that helps her achieve financial stability,” Art Capital said. “I think this is a win-win for both parties,” said William Heller, an intellectual property attorney not involved in the case, when told of the agreement. “An amicable resolution in disputes like these is far better than an adjudicated solution, which comes at great cost and great delay.” “Art Capital is most concerned about repayment of its loan, and Annie Leibovitz is most concerned about protecting her rights in her valuable intellectual property,” Heller added.
SA: I think I belong to a new generation of musicians, because we had a very hard dictatorship in my country. For a while we didn’t have any art expression between 1970 and 1990. I belong to a new generation of musicians that have a lot to say, because it was very hard not to express the art of music all over the country. Now in Chile, we have a very different kind of music, and all the influences have developed in Chile from many other places in the world. We have a very big mix of traditional Chilean folk music and all the other cultures that are coming into my country. DL: What are you going to play when you come to the QBar in Albuquerque? SA: This weekend I’m going to play something from “Terciopelo,” which translates into “velvet,” and
something from “Cambio de Estación,” or “Change of Station,” and some of my music that is not here in the U.S. yet. I’m going to play a mix of my three albums. DL: What type of music do you play? SA: It’s downtempo electronic music. Everything is mixed in the electronic music. We’ve got some kind of Latin nostalgic that makes it a very special mix. My connection with the music now that I am older is very spiritual. I didn’t expect anything (but) just to play and learn the music I received. I know that whatever happens is going to be good for me and good for the music. I didn’t expect anything like what is happening today. I just enjoy the music and share the music with all people.

ment of popular music in Escuela Moderna de Música. And then I created Muza after many other experiences in music. I started this kind of mellow and female music, and I started that 10 years ago. I came here about a month ago, and I really don’t know how long I will be here for. I have to stay here till the end of October, and I have to go to Denmark for a big music festival. I come back here in November and December, and I’m not sure if I will stay here longer or not. It depends on the gigs and everything. I am here with two more musicians, and we’re playing in New Mexico, in Denver, in Boulder, in places in Taos, and Albuquerque. DL: How was your experience growing up in Chile under Pinochet’s dictatorship?
Hiltzik, declined to comment on specifics of the deal. Last year, Leibovitz put up as collateral three Manhattan townhouses, an upstate New York property and the copyright to every picture she has ever taken — or will take — to secure the loan. Leibovitz needed the money, according to Art Capital, to deal with a “dire financial condition” stemming from her mortgage obligations, tax liens and unpaid bills. The company sued her in July, claiming she had breached an agreement that authorized it to act as the agent in the sale of her photography and real estate. On Friday, the parties said Art Capital withdrew the lawsuit and sold back the rights to her works. Leibovitz “purchased from Art Capital its rights to act as exclusive agent in the sale of her real property and copyrights,” the joint statement said. “Ms. Leibovitz will therefore
