Staff report

sports@dailylobo.com LAS CRUCES — A woman attending the UNM-NMSU football game Saturday night at Aggie Memorial Stadium was struck by a bullet fired from a small-caliber handgun, a spokesman for the NMSU Police Department said Saturday night. The woman’s identity was not released. The round struck the woman in the leg at approximately 8:15 p.m. inside the stadium, NMSU Police Department Deputy Chief Andy Bowen told the Daily Lobo after the game. The woman was transported to University Medical Center in El Paso for treatment of non-life-threatening injuries. Bowen said police recovered the bullet that struck the woman. The bullet remained intact, which would indicate the round was fired toward the sky. Bowen added there was no gunshot heard inside the stadium and no shot came from inside the stadium. “It would appear that it came from outside somewhere,” he said. The woman was the only individual struck, Bowen said.

UNM postpones Senate confirms law dean hospital approval The Associated Press

by Svetlana Ozden news@dailylobo.com

The hearing for final approval of a $146 million adult-care hospital has been postponed pending a series of public meetings that will address concerns from the community. UNM representatives sent a letter to the State Board of Finance last Monday asking to defer the final approval of the hospital after members of New Mexicans for Equal Health Care Access and the Rio Grande Foundation expressed concern that approval for the hospital was not made transparent with sufficient public conversation and that the hospital’s purpose is unclear. UNM Health Sciences Center members asked to move the discussion to Oct. 16 and said the town hall meetings and the additional time will provide an opportunity to address concerns over the new hospital, such as the hospital’s mission and finances. No dates have been set for the town halls yet. The hospital was approved by the Health Science Center Board of Directors, the regents’ Finance

and Facilities Committee and the Board of Regents in June and was scheduled to open July 2014, pending approval from the New Mexico Higher Education Department and State Board of Finance. The New Mexico Higher Education Department approved the hospital and approval was on the agenda for last Tuesday’s State Board of Finance meeting. The new hospital, which would be constructed near Lomas Boulevard and I-25 and include 96 inpatient hospital beds, aims to decrease emergency waiting room wait time, which is about 24 to 36 hours on average. UNMH sees about 90,000 emergency patients a year and runs at a 95 percent occupancy rate; the additional beds will allow emergency room beds to be used for emergency cases. HSC Communications and Marketing Executive Director Billy Sparks said that before the meeting next month, regents will host a series of town hall meetings to allow for public input. He said the meetings will provide an opportunity for the University

The U.S. Senate has confirmed a member of the Chickasaw Nation of Oklahoma who is currently the dean of the University of New Mexico Law School to oversee the Bureau of Indian Affairs. The Senate approved President Barack Obama’s nomination of Kevin Washburn as Assistant Secretary for Indian Affairs by unanimous consent late Friday. The vote was applauded by

Secretary of the Interior Ken Salazar. “As we continue to strengthen the integrity of the nation’s government-to-government relationship with federally recognized Indian tribes and empower Native American and Alaska Native communities, Kevin Washburn will be an outstanding addition to our leadership team and a vital asset for President Obama’s initiatives in Indian Country,” Salazar said in a statement. Washburn has been UNM law

school dean since June 2009. He also worked as a federal prosecutor and has taught at law schools at the University of Arizona and the University of Minnesota. “Kevin understands the pressing needs of Indian Country, and he brings the experience and enthusiasm needed to meet those challenges, Sen. Jeff Bingaman (D-N.M.) said in a statement Saturday. “The Senate’s quick

Laws may deter Hispanic voters The Associated Press

WASHINGTON — The combined effects of voter roll purges, demands for proof of citizenship and photo identification requirements in several states may hinder at least 10 million Hispanic citizens who seek to vote this fall, civil rights advocates warn in a new report. Hispanic voters are considered pivotal to the presidential election this November, and are being heavily courted by both Democratic incumbent Barack Obama and Republican challenger Mitt Romney. If they turn out in large numbers, Hispanics could sway the outcome in several swing states.

Out of the shot, 13!

In an analysis based on government data, civil rights group The Advancement Project identified legal barriers that could deter voter registration and participation among eligible Hispanics. In some of those states, the group’s researchers said, the number of voter-eligible Latino citizens potentially blocked by those barriers exceeds the margin of victory in the 2008 election. “Like African Americans, Latinos have experienced decreased access and correspondingly lower levels of voter registration and participation than non-Hispanic whites,” said the report, which was released Monday. The report called for repeal

of policies that wrongfully inhibit Hispanic voters, and asked that the Justice Department investigate and prosecute “any related voting rights violations.” According to census data, there were more than 21 million Hispanics of voting age in 2010. They made up roughly 10 percent of all eligible voters and 8 percent of registered voters in the United States. Among eligible Hispanics in 2010, 6.3 million said they were not registered to vote, and 10.8 million — about half of those of voting age — said they did not vote, the report said.

Spaceport’s future uncertain Sushi & Sake 338-242 426 Ko rean BB4Q 338-2 by Jeri Clausing

The Associated Press

TRUTH OR CONSEQUENCES — New Mexico Tourism Secretary Monique Jacobson says it will be New Mexico’s Sydney Opera House. Virgin Galactic Chairman Richard Branson has hinted it will host the first of his new brand of lifestyle hotels. And the eclectic hot springs town of Truth or Consequences has been anxiously awaiting all the economic development the nearly quarter-of-a-billion-dollar project is supposed to bring to this largely rural part of southern New Mexico. But as phase one of Spaceport America, the world’s first commercial port built specifically for sending tourists and payloads into space, is nearing completion, the only new hotel project that has been finalized is a Holiday Inn Express here in Truth or Consequences, about 25 miles away. And three key companies with millions of dollars in payroll have passed on developing operations in the state. The lagging development, along with competition from heavy hitters like Florida and Texas, is raising new questions about the viability of the $209 billion taxpayer-funded project — as well as the rush by so

many states to grab a piece of the commercial spaceport pie. To date, nine spaceports are planned around the United States, mostly at existing airports, and another 10 have been proposed, according to a recent report from the New Mexico Spaceport Authority. “Right now, the industry is not there to support it,” Alex Ignatiev, a University of Houston physics professor and adviser to space companies, said of the list of planned and proposed spaceports across America. Andrew Nelson, COO of XCOR Aerospace, disagrees, saying “in the next two to three years, there’s going to be a demonstrative reduction in the cost to launch stuff … so we are going to have a lot more people coming out of the woodwork.” Currently, the Spaceport can count on two rocket companies that send vertical payloads into space and Virgin Galactic, the Branson space tourism venture that says it has signed up more than 500 wealthy adventurers for $200,000-per-person spaceflights. Other leaders in the race to commercialize the business and send tourists into space have been passing on New Mexico. For example, XCOR Aerospace, which manufactures reusable rocket engines for major aerospace contractors and is designing a

two-person space vehicle called the Lynx, has twice passed over New Mexico in favor of Texas and Florida. Most recently, it announced plans to locate its new Commercial Space Research and Development Center Headquarters in Midland, Texas. Another company, RocketCrafters, Inc., passed over New Mexico for Titusville, Fla. And the space tourism company SpaceX is looking at basing a plant with $50 million in annual salaries to Brownsville, Texas. Locally, officials blame the lack of new businesses on the legislature’s refusal to pass laws that would exempt spacecraft suppliers from liability for passengers should the spacecraft crash or blow up. When New Mexico was developing Spaceport in partnership with Virgin Galactic, it passed a law to exempt the carrier through 2018, but not parts suppliers. Colorado, Florida, Texas and Virginia have adopted permanent liability exemption laws for both carriers and suppliers. The laws, called informed consent, are much like those that exempt ski areas from lawsuits by skiers, who waive their rights for claims when they buy a ski pass. “The issue is informed consent legislation,” said Truth or Consequences Mayor John Mulcahy. “We need to get that passed.”

from Latin America. Colorado and Florida identified voters for possible purging by comparing their voter registrations with driver’s license databases that show which voters indicated they were immigrants — thereby creating a problem, the report said. “Naturalized citizens typically received their driver’s licenses when they were legal immigrants but before becoming naturalized citizens (and before registering to vote); therefore, this method generates lists of voters to be checked that targets naturalized citizens,” the report said. Florida stopped its effort to remove noncitizens from its voter rolls once officials realized that they were using an outdated database to check citizenship. As of last month, laws requiring additional citizenship documents

— a certified birth certificate, passport or naturalization papers — in order to register to vote were in effect in Georgia, might take effect in Alabama and Arizona later this year, and had been proposed in several states, the report said. Such a demand was “previously unheard of” in the U.S., the report said, mainly because federal protections against noncitizens registering to vote already were in place. Asking for extra paperwork effectively puts “onerous and sometimes expensive” requirements on Latino voters at a disproportionate rate over others, researchers said. The same is true for “restrictive” photo identification laws in nine states: Georgia, Indiana, Kansas, Mississippi, Pennsylvania, South Carolina, Tennessee, Texas and Wisconsin, the report said.

There are three significant barriers to Hispanic  voter participation, researchers said: citizenship-based voter purges, proof of citizenship requirements and photo identification laws. Sixteen states have either adopted or are pursuing citizenshiprelated purges of their voter rolls, the report said. Those states are Alaska, Arizona, Arkansas, Colorado, Florida, Georgia, Iowa, Kansas, Michigan, New Mexico, North Carolina, Ohio, Tennessee, Texas, Utah and Washington. Those states are home to nearly 5.5 million registered Latino voters, and 1.1 million naturalized citizens

THE RESULTS OF LAST WEEK’S POLL: Recently, Lobo Village security prevented UNM Regent Jack Fortner and his wife from visiting their daughter because Fortner’s wife did not have her ID. Do you think the heightened security measures have gone too far? No, Lobo Village has been nothing but a zoo with the nonstop party atmosphere, and if this is what it means to keep residents safe, then so be it.

53%

Yes, when security is keeping out more than the people causing trouble, it’s time to rethink security measures.

25%

What are these heightened security measures of which you speak? Can the Daily Lobo give me specifics on the new security situation?

15%

Yes, I remember the days when I could go to Lobo Village to have a good time, but this security system is a real downer.

THIS WEEK’S POLL: Last week, Mother Jones published the full transcript of a hidden videotape of presidential candidate Mitt Romney. What did you think of this? I was a Romney supporter up until this happened. From what I can tell, the Republican Party has largely lost faith in him. I’m a Democratic voter and was relieved to see Romney seal his fate as the loser of this year’s election. I am neither a Republican nor Democrat, so the incident was neither here nor there as far as whom I’m voting for. The video was entertaining, but Romney probably didn’t mean most of what he said.

Better communication can fix flier controversy Editor’s note: This letter is in response to “Fliers at pro-life rally spark controversy,” published in Thursday’s Daily Lobo. The article is about controversy created by pro-life fliers which depict “a Native American medicine wheel in the background, and the phrase ‘Today an Indian boy was killed in the Indian way hey ya hey.’” Kiva Club members perceived the fliers as racist.

Just be fair: Cite quotes with accuracy, in context Editor’s note: This letter is in response to the letter “Ugly choice between extremes awaits voters,” published in Thursday’s Daily Lobo.

COLUMN

Kvetchers, come compose us columns by Alexandra Swanberg opinion@dailylobo.com

Traditionally, politics is one of those topics you don’t bring up in polite conversation, and anybody who has initiated such discussion knows exactly why. Sparks fly, especially in our partisan land divided between left and right. Both sides have their characteristic viewpoints, and members of each party tend to stick to these expectations to win the favor of the voters who subscribe to that party. The system leaves about half the country, if not more, dissatisfied depending on the strength of the candidate who represents “their party.” Is it any wonder one side wars against the other? Like angry neighbors, we glare at those on the other side of the fence, wishing they would realize how ridiculous their beliefs are, so we could all finally be on the same page. The problem is that everybody thinks they’re right, and nobody is willing to compromise. It’s a flawed system — and to think our founders believed it would be swell, one that served the public and the greater good. Bah!

Those days are over, and with our swift takeover of much of the continent, the population has grown just as quickly as the national divide. Just take a look at the DailyLobo. com comment boards to see the phenomenon on a local level. We are “the leftist rag” accused of being in cahoots with the Albuquerque Center for Peace and Justice, conveniently located a block away. Then again, the leftists reading our rag think the people posting such comments are a bunch of Tea Party loons, and the “evidence” just keeps piling up, especially with presidential candidate Mitt Romney’s never-ending blooper reel circulating in the major media outlets daily. So this election season, the Daily Lobo thought it would be informative and entertaining to have columnists from both parties debate the issues. Each Monday, we’ll feature a new pair of columnists who spout off on topics such as the economy, education and women’s issues. We’re looking for writers who are knowledgeable and can go into some depth to provide insight in a way that the general public can understand, i.e., no technical talk, and if you’re going to get theoretical, don’t be complicated about it.

Anyone interested has until Saturday at midnight to submit a sample column no more than 700 words long. Email your entry to opinion@dailylobo.com and include your name, indicate whether you’re a student, staff or faculty member, and your political affiliation. The column may or may not be published, but we will notify you either way. This is a one-time gig, and because the hiring process is so long and we can’t pay people retroactively, it is an unpaid one as well. It makes for an excellent scrapbook addition, and you can use it as a published writing sample if you’re interested in writing professionally. Plus, you get the satisfaction of “proving” your point to the other side — without being interrupted as you would be in conversation. Then, revel in the comment threads that are sure to follow. And don’t forget about the Decision 2012 Electoral Map Contest! For more information, see “Get creative with Electoral College map,” published in last Monday’s Daily Lobo.

LETTERS CAFE) and Lane Bird Bear (president of Kiva Club): It seems to me that the controversy existing between your organizations has stemmed from a mere lack of effective communication. Based on my reading of Thursday’s front page article, it is my understanding that as president of Kiva Club, Mr. Bird Bear, you want to hold CAFE accountable for posters that you believe “negatively target” Native Americans. However, according to you, Ms. Serrano, a man unassociated with your organization brought in the posters, and as soon as you realized their depictions, you immediately had them taken down throughout campus. I have a proposition for each of you: Mr. Bird Bear, I invite you to ask yourself whether you would want the Kiva Club to be held accountable for an unassociated person who chooses to post signs throughout campus that exploit Native

American pride to the point of implied discrimination against other cultural groups. Certainly not. I agree with you that your “culture and identities can’t be misappropriated to further their … political agenda anymore.” However, I also don’t believe this has ever been the intention of CAFE; the organization simply wouldn’t make sense if it were. As for you, Ms. Serrano, in the article you are quoted as saying, “We had a gentlemen who was not associated with our group who wanted to come along, and he had some signs he had made … we didn’t look at them initially.” As the director of an organization, it is your responsibility to ensure that promotional materials brought to you by someone who wants to “help” are in no way misrepresenting the organization. Had he chosen to hang the posters around campus of his

own accord, it would have been out of your control. But he came to you with the materials, and therefore they should have at least been closely examined. After all, the posters could have been much worse. In conclusion, Ms. Serrano and Mr. Bird Bear, I encourage your organizations to acknowledge this “controversy” as one simply caused by miscommunication instead of seeing an opportunity to further distance your organizations from each other. It is apparent to me that both the Kiva Club and CAFE are extremely passionate in promoting their purposes; both demonstrate the strength students can create through campus organizations that will further allow our University to thrive. Sean Ritchel UNM student

Editor,

Somebody helped to create this unbelievable American system that we have that allowed you to thrive. Somebody invested in roads and bridges. If you’ve got a business — you didn’t build that. Somebody made that happen. (Author’s note: meaning the transportation infrastructure that promotes business success). The Internet didn’t get invented on its own. Government research created the Internet so that all the companies could make money off the Internet. The point is that when we succeed, we succeed because of our individual initiative, but also because we do

things together.” It is too easy to snatch up inaccurate quotes and send them across the nation. As a former member of the Republican Party and someone who is sensitive to the many inaccurate, out–of-context twists now being spewed in the name of politics in this tense political season, I am asking students and faculty to strive to be fully accurate in their correspondence and political communications. Just be fair. Phyllis Wilcox UNM faculty member

What I see are people angry at quotes being attributed to President Obama, such as the recent “If you’ve got a business … you didn’t build that.” As a university professor, I want to encourage scholars to use their intellect rather than emotion when responding to such “quotes.” As a start, read the quote below slowly. Be careful as you read. Obama’s actual quote: “If you were successful, somebody along the line gave you some help. There was a great teacher somewhere in your life.

Baby panda dies in Washington by Ben Nuckols

The Associated Press WASHINGTON — The giant panda  cub born a week ago at the National Zoo in Washington died Sunday morning, saddening zoo officials and visitors who had heralded its unexpected arrival. The 4-ounce cub, about the size of a stick of butter, showed no obvious signs of distress and made its final recorded noise shortly before 9 a.m. Sunday, zoo officials said at a news conference. The cub’s mother, Mei Xiang, then made an unusual honking sound at 9:17 a.m. that her keepers interpreted as a distress call, and she moved away from where she had been nesting with the cub. About an hour later, one keeper distracted her with honey water while another used an instrument similar to a lacrosse stick to pick up the cub. The cub, whose gender could not be determined externally, was not breathing and its heart had stopped. A veterinarian attempted CPR before it

was pronounced dead at 10:28 a.m. “This is devastating for all of us here,� National Zoo director Dennis Kelly said at a news conference. “It’s hard to describe how much passion and energy and thought and care has gone into this.� Four American zoos have pandas, but Washington’s  pandas  are treated like royalty. The zoo was given its first set of pandas in 1972 as a gift from China to commemorate President Richard Nixon’s historic visit to the country. Mei Xiang’s first cub, Tai Shan, born in 2005, enjoyed enormous popularity before he was returned to China in 2010. The new cub, born Sept. 16, had been a surprise at the zoo. Fourteenyear-old Mei Xiang had five failed pregnancies before giving birth. Panda cubs are especially delicate and vulnerable to infection and other illness. The first weeks of life are critical for the cubs as mothers have to make sure they stay warm and get enough to eat. Panda  mothers are about 1,000

times heavier than their cubs, and sometimes they accidentally crush them. On any given day in the first two weeks of life, cubs have a mortality rate of 17 to 18 percent, zoo officials said. A necropsy was being conducted to determine the cause of death, and preliminary findings were expected Monday, said Suzan Murray, the zoo’s chief veterinarian. The cub showed no external signs of trauma, she said. “The cub was just beautiful. Beautiful little body, beautiful face, with markings just beginning to show around the eye,� Murray said. As they did after Tai Shan was born, keepers had been leaving Mei Xiang alone with her offspring, monitoring her on video feeds that were also streamed on the zoo’s website. Mei Xiang was resting comfortably after the cub’s death, officials said. The zoo’s first panda couple, Ling Ling and Hsing Hsing, had five cubs during the 1980s, but none lived more than a few days. One of the cubs was stillborn; two others died of pneumonia within a day; another died from lack of oxygen after birth; and the final cub died of an infection after four days. The cub had not yet been named in accordance with Chinese tradition — it was to receive a name after 100 days on Dec. 24. It will not be named posthumously, Kelly said. Kelly said it was too soon to know if the zoo would attempt to breed Mei Xiang again. She was artificially inseminated with sperm from the zoo’s male panda, Tian Tian. “These bears are so critically endangered that every panda cub is important,� Kelly said. The  panda  exhibit was closed indefinitely. Early Sunday afternoon, there was still a sign outside the panda house announcing the cub’s birth, and many visitors were unaware of the death.

from 29 yards out. Carrier added the first score after halftime when he went 29 yards unmolested for his first touchdown of the game, pushing the Lobo lead to 20-7. UNM put the game away thanks to Pressley’s second touchdown, which brought the score to 27-7 with 9:10 left in the game. The Aggies went down swinging with a 23-yard touchdown pass from senior quarterback Andrew Manley to cut the Lobo lead 27-14 with 3:54 to play. Manley went 22 of 34 with 256 yards and one score. Stoner said the win shows the heart and strength of the seniors who stayed through all of the upheaval. “It felt great. I had to keep from crying. I hugged my mom for about five minutes; she was here at the game,” he said. “It was a great feeling to stick around and keep fighting. A bunch of us could have left, but we wanted to stick it out and show everybody that we can win here and we will win here.”

Six ball carriers contributed to that tally. Jhurell Pressley added 71 yards and two touchdowns, followed by Chase Clayton with 36, B.R. Holbrook with 42, Carlos Wiggins with 20 and Lamaar Thomas with 19. “I looked at the tape last year and they flat-out did that to us, and we were able to get that thing turned around to where we did that to them,” UNM head coach Bob Davie said. “That’s a compliment to a lot of guys, for the kids to come off of two straight losses.” Carrier said he wasn’t surprised the Lobos were able to run the ball that well against the Aggies. “We were expecting to come in and run the ball,” said Carrier, a native of Pearland, Texas. “We knew that was going to be a way to keep the ball for a long time of possession, come in and win the game.” The performance is particularly sweet for Carrier given his recent history. He redshirted the 2011 season after he was sidelined with an ankle injury.

from page 12 He also rebounded from a hamstring injury during spring practice. Then there’s the added benefit of the performance coming against UNM’s biggest rival in 2012, which also marks the state’s centennial. “It feels great, especially to get it in the centennial game, a rivalry like this,” Carrier said. “It means a lot to the fans and definitely us.” Carrier said it was also important to win this game for the seniors, who hadn’t beaten the Aggies until Saturday night. “We wanted these guys to go out on top,” he said. “They’ve been through a lot, three head coaches. We tried to finish it off on a positive note.” The win puts UNM at 2-2 on the season, which Carrier said could lead to bigger and better things for the Lobos. “I believe this game right here turns a lot of things around for our season,” he said. “We’re trying to go up from here, not down.”

sports brief Women’s Soccer The UNM women’s soccer team picked up a pair of wins at this weekend’s UC Riverside tournament in Riverside, Calif., improving to 6-4-1 on the season following a 0-3-1 start. The Lobos defeated UC Riverside 1-0 on Friday before earning a 2-0 victory over UC Davis on Sunday. The UC Davis win is UNM’s third consecutive shutout decision. Freshman midfielder Dylann O’Connor had UNM’s goal in the Riverside match. The West Hills, Calif., native scored her first career goal 23 minutes into the game off an assist by senior defender Lauren Irwin. UNM outshot UC Riverside 16-5, 6-0 on goal, and had five corner kicks. Riverside had one corner kick. Senior forward Stephanie Rowe scored both goals against UC Davis, bringing her season total to three. The first goal came at the 8:18 mark following assists from junior defender Liz Nare and junior midfielder Elba Holguin. Rowe scored again in the second half. UNM had 13 shots, eight on net. UC Davis fired 11 shots and five on net. ~J.R. Oppenheim

Adria Malcolm / Daily Lobo Redshirt junior Lawrence Robledo (13) watches redshirt junior Kyle Venter head the ball away from a Northern Illinois player on Sunday at the UNM Soccer Complex. The Lobos beat the Huskies 3-0 and are now 7-1 on the year.

by Thomas Romero-Salas sports@dailylobo.com

To the naked eye, it looked like the UNM men’s soccer team dismantled Northern Illinois in a 3-0 victory on Sunday. But head coach Jeremy Fishbein was not at all satisfied with the performance of the No. 5 team in the nation. “We didn’t play very well. We switched the lineup a bit and it’s not as a cohesive of a group, and guys saw more minutes than they’re used to,” he said. “It’s an opportunity for them, and I think as a team we got a little complacent. We felt the game was too easy, and we didn’t have enough respect for our opponents at all times. I’m happy with the result, but I’m not happy with how we played. I expect more out of our team.” The Lobos (7-1-0) made eight substitutions in the contest and lost some of their continuity because of the swaps. Fishbein said he doesn’t know what combination of coaching techniques he should make use of

to rile up the Lobos. “It’s hard … some coaches would’ve probably kept the starting team on and not switch it up. I feel we have a lot of depth and we owe it to the guys who work hard every day, and that’s the reward: getting game minutes,” he said. “As much as you want to light into them, I don’t think that’s the answer today. But we definitely have to be better and convey that message to the moving forward.” Senior forward Devon Sandoval scored the first goal of the game in the 19th minute, thanks to senior forward Blake Smith’s pictureperfect cross assist. Sandoval added his second goal of the game when redshirt sophomore forward Carson Baldinger chipped the ball over Huskies goalie Jordan Godsey to Sandoval for a cinch goal in the 29th minute, bringing the Lobos to 2-0. Sandoval, who now has seven goals on the year, said the team has to be consistent with its play from start to finish. “We still have a lot to improve on and we still can get better. We should’ve scored two or

three more goals,” he said. “We have to take advantage of our opportunities.” The Lobos weren’t finished, as in the 67th minute Smith slipped past the Northern Illinois defense and drilled the ball at Godsey, who blocked it straight back to Smith. Smith shot it right into the far post and celebrated with three backflips in a row. Fishbein said the win is gratifying, but the team must stay focused as the conference season approaches. “It was an interesting game; on one hand you have to be pleased with a 3-0 victory, but the flip side is you work so hard, and it was an opportunity for guys to get some minutes,” he said. “It was a tough game to come in and do things, what we wanted to do as a team. We’re going to focus on the positives, and we achieved a lot of our goals going into it, but I would’ve loved to have seen a perfect game for 90 minutes.” Statistically, the Lobos dominated the Huskies (1-4-2) with nine corner kicks to three and 18 shots to nine.

Lobos whip conference rival UW by Kallye Martin

sports@dailylobo.com The Lobo volleyball team continued its winning ways with a 3-1 set victory over Wyoming University on Saturday night. UNM (14-2) dropped the first set 23-25 to the Cowgirls (11-4) but came back with a vengeance in the final three sets. Leading straight into the second game, redshirt sophomore right setter Chantale Riddle came out strong, crushing three spikes cross court from the right side to cut Wyoming’s lead to two. The game was tied when junior outside hitter Lena Skipper served an ace right on the line, and the Lobos took the lead with serving and quick sets from senior setter Jordan Russell to middle blocker freshman Skye Gullatt. The Lobos won the final three sets with scores of 25-17, 25-18 and 25-19. At the end of the final set, junior outside hitter Ashley Newman had three ace serves in a row, giving the Lobos a quick victory. Riddle led the kills for the night with 18, more than any player on the board. Junior middle

blocker Lexi Ross followed with 13. Russell led both teams with 25 assists, and redshirt freshman hitter Hannah Johnson had 23. Junior libero Miquella Lovato had the most digs with 24. Ross said the slider spike — a technical hit from the middle to right side — is something they practice often, as evidenced by the results.

“My biggest hope with this team is that they just don’t run out of gas, because they work so hard.” ~Jeff Nelson head coach “We work on it every day in practice,” Ross said. “We work on everything. Head coach Jeff Nelson is really into technique and fundamentals and doing the

little things right, which makes everything become easier. I think we all played well. We played as a team, and that’s all we can ask for every night is go out and battle, so it was great.” Nelson said the team’s chemistry has been good despite having only one senior leader: Russell. “I think you know we’re young, and we have a good senior leader, and the chemistry just seems to be really nice. They’re being very mature and really handling things well,” he said. “My biggest hope with this team is that they just don’t run out of gas, because they work so hard. I’m just absolutely impressed with how hard they’re working right now.” Nelson said he hopes the Lobos can keep the momentum going through conference play. “It’s everything we keep preaching,” Nelson said. “You know we got outhit in the first game. We came back and just barely outhit them in the next two, but we dug a lot more balls and we were tough, and that’s what we’ve been preaching.”

Paul Crespo / Daily Lobo Freshman Alijah Gunsaulus picks out a dig against Wyoming University on Saturday at Johnson Center. The Lobos went on to win 3-1 for their second conference win of the season.

New Mexico Daily Lobo

Year Zero Weekly Horoscopes by Alexandra Swanberg aswanny@unm.edu

Look for your Lobo Capricorn­—You are a consum-

mate leader when given the opportunity, but you’ll want to tweak your management style this week. As much as you bring to the table, it’s important to consider how others might be of service to you. Of course, reciprocity is key, as it will justify otherwise selfish decisions. The energy is right for you to take a big step forward — imagine how much further you’ll go with some assistance. Aquarius—There are many opportunities in store for you this week, if you’re up to the challenge of allowing change. You feel a strong inner tension that’s tearing you apart inside, although you hate to admit it. Just keep in mind that your frustration can be alleviated with a change of perspective. Start by acquainting yourself with a spectrum of views on a single issue. You’ll realize that with all that diversity, the world can never fit in your particular box. On the sunny side, the people you meet will not bore you. Pisces—You will be overcome by wishy-washiness this week, but the pressure to go one way or another is mounting. With the full moon on Saturday, the conflict will culminate in a memorable display, though the details are unclear to you. Right now, you can’t imagine settling. You might find others’ counsel to be helpful, and don’t be too shy to ask! The person you have in mind has probably been waiting patiently for you to come around. The talk will be agreeable. Aries—It’s going to be a rough week if you don’t learn how to pick your battles wisely. It’s too tempting for you to indulge in nit-picky arguments because your need to be right is a major influence. Your ego is on the line, but it’s getting in the way of any real progress. Look outside yourself and think about the world as a whole. In the scheme of things, what you tend to

stress over are molehills, which is a shame because you have the potential to impact bigger issues. Taurus—You need to slough off bad energy, period. Your thoughts have been acting like poison, creating maladies such as fatigue and mystery aches and pains. Take care of your body, and the rest will follow, for your body needs to be in top shape if it is to be an efficient tool in executing what you will. As with most things, starting is the hard part. Just get to it, stop thinking about it. Gemini—Without much effort, you can coordinate your schedule in a way that meets the demands you pack it with. This is fortunate, as the week demands all your multi-tasking skills and that you be flexible in terms of plans you make. It will all pay off by the end of the week, and if you make time for an afternoon of rest and relaxation this weekend, you’ll be ready for more next week. Be sure to make time for friends, or you risk a nervous breakdown. Cancer—Your emotions have been getting the best of you, particularly the nasty, self-loathing ones. With your head hung so low, how are you ever to see a way out of the slump? You know how you’d like to feel and you often dream about a better life, so just act the part you’ve gotten to know through fantasy and you’ll be on your way to making it a reality. Leo—This is your week to shine if you can escape a nagging feeling of self-doubt. You’re able to strike a balance between catering to others and serving your own needs. This is a major development, as you’ve felt your own issues have obscured the world outside of them. It’s a relief to feel you’re coming to terms with these warring sides; now spend some time nurturing the habit of balancing so it becomes second nature.

Virgo—There is to be a huge weight lifted from your soul by Sunday, so be sure to mark off every item on your to-do list so you may treat yourself. Now that your home sign’s influence is being replaced by balance-driven Libra, work will call to you all week and demand serious intellectual output. This week, the weight of most decisions increases, so avoid getting trapped in the weeds by focusing on the big picture issue rather than the details that make it up. Libra—Whether or not you’re looking for love, you might be surprised at the series of flirtatious encounters in the coming week. Beyond a good time, these people are here to open important doors for you. Therefore, try to find out as much as you can about them without prying too much. Encourage them to open up until you find your common ground. Then build upon that according to what you wish to accomplish there. Scorpio—Be prepared for a deep sense of exhaustion by this week’s end, which doesn’t mean take it easy while you can. With this fatigue will come a sense of relief knowing you’ve cleared your mind of all the bull honky that accompanies procrastination. It’s time to stop feeling guilty and do something satisfying that leaves you feeling proud, not wishing you had done better. Sagittarius—The fog is clearing up for you, but the solution doesn’t become an easier one just like that. A deep-seated issue recently resurfaced in a big way, and you’ve finally tracked this thing all the way to the root.

RECLAIMING THE RIVALRY by Thomas Romero-Salas sports@dailylobo.com

LAS CRUCES — For the Lobo football team, revenge is a dish best served with an authoritative beat down. UNM dominated in-state rival NMSU in every facet of Saturday’s 2714 victory at Aggie Memorial Stadium. Defensively, the Lobos forced the Aggies to fumble twice, punt five times and turn over a possession on downs. Offensively, UNM thrashed NMSU on the ground, gaining 302 yards and controlling the ball with a time of possession of 38:15. Junior running back Kasey Carrier led the way with

“It felt great. I had to keep from crying. I hugged my mom for about five minutes.” ~Joe Stoner senior linebacker 129 yards on 21 attempts and one touchdown, while freshman running back Jhurell Pressley gained 71 yards on 15 carries and scored twice. The game was the Lobos’ first win over the Aggies since 2008, and first-year head coach Bob Davie said he made it a priority to highlight the importance of this game whenever he could. “I knew as soon as I became head coach here they were our No. 1 rival,” Davie said. “It’s the biggest game of the year, and I think it was probably February, I walked in and started putting in ‘9-22-12’ with every time we met. I got a little tired of doing it. There’s no question we put a lot into this emotionally. But bigger than that, I’m just proud the monkey is off these kids’ backs.” Davie said he knows what a challenge this victory was because of the injuries to the defensive secondary, specifically not having senior safety Matt Raymer and senior defensive back Freddy Young available.

Adria Malcolm / Daily Lobo Senior wide receiver Ty Kirk hugs redshirt freshman running back Jhurell Pressley after Pressley’s second touchdown of the game. UNM defeated NMSU for the first time since 2008 with a final score of 27-14. “I’m really proud of this team. To physically come in here — after two games on the road at Texas and at Texas Tech — beat up … you know the secondary got a lot of publicity for being beaten up, but we had a lot of guys who were beat up,” Davie said. “Just the physical nature in which they play the game is something I think we

can build on. I really do.” Senior linebacker Joe Stoner, who had four tackles and recovered a fumble, said it’s a relief to finally defeat the Aggies. “It feels great. We lost three straight; to get the last one is a big weight off our shoulders. We didn’t want to go out and be the senior class that didn’t beat

State,” Stoner said. “Four losses in a row would have been devastating and made our season go the other way. We won the game, we’re 2-2 and anything can happen from here on out.” UNM scored the first touchdown of the game when Pressley punched in a 7-yard run to put the Lobos up 10-0 with 10:57 left in the second quarter.

NMSU answered right back with a touchdown of its own, thanks to an 11yard scamper by senior running back Robert Clay with 8:48 remaining in the first half. The Lobos went to halftime with a 13-7 lead after another field goal by junior kicker Justus Adams, this time

Daily Lobo

LAS CRUCES — With a name like Kasey Carrier, toting a football seems like an obvious choice. The UNM junior running back carried the ball for 129 yards and a touchdown, spearheading a strong rushing attack in the Lobos’ 27-14 victory over rival New Mexico State on Saturday night at Aggie Memorial Stadium. Averaging 6.1 yards per carry on 21 attempts against the Aggies, Carrier earned his first career 100-yard rushing game. His previous career-high total came against Wyoming in 2010 when he amassed 97 yards on the ground. “We came in fighting from the beginning,” he said Saturday after UNM celebrated its first victory over NMSU since 2008. “It started up front with our O-line and D-line. We knew it was going to come down to those guys fighting every play for us. The O-line definitely blew open a whole bunch of holes for us.” Carrier was only a part of UNM’s stellar rushing performance. The Lobos had a whopping 302 rushing yards. NMSU had 78 rushing yards.
