Assistant coach: Locksley hit me by Isaac Avilucea Daily Lobo
Mike Locksley has jokingly likened himself to former Death Row Records CEO Marion “Suge” Knight, and they’re starting to mirror each other in reputation as well as appearance. To date, Locksley has more legal troubles than wins. The list includes a pending sexual harassment lawsuit and, now, allegations of battery. According to an Albuquerque Police Department report he filed Sept. 20, wide receivers coach and recruiting coordinator Jonathan “J.B.” Gerald said Locksley approached him in an “aggressive manner” after the two exchanged words in a “heated” conversation during a coaches’ meeting that day. “Locksley grabbed him by the collar, and as other coaches were attempting to intervene coach Locksley punched him in the mouth, causing a small cut on the inside of his upper lip,” according to the report.
Gerald, who’s been on staff since late January, was not available for comment on Monday. In a news conference Monday, Athletics Director Paul Krebs said Gerald won’t file charges. Gerald has been on paid administrative leave since last week. Krebs said he hopes everything gets smoothed over and Gerald opts for a return to the Lobos’ sidelines. “We would welcome J.B. back to the program,” he said. “That issue rests with him right now.” In a written statement, Locksley didn’t dispute some of the facts outlined in the police report. “I acknowledge that an altercation took place last Sunday between myself and assistant coach J.B. Gerald during a meeting with the offensive coaching staff,” Locksley said. “I apologized to coach Gerald, the coaching staff and our team for my poor judgment. I would also like to apologize to Lobo fans. Like I remind our players, when

Israeli grassroots activist to speak Staff Report Daily Lobo
Former Israeli Defense Forces soldier and grassroots activist Micah Kurz will host a discussion today about grassroots organizations in Jerusalem. The Coalition for Peace and Justice in the Middle East, a UNM student organization, organized Kurz’s lecture, which will take place at the SUB. Kurz said the discussion will focus on his work to map out the many local organizations in Jerusalem. He said his organization, Grassroots Jerusalem, is creating a network with the various groups. “There are a bunch of different grassroots organizations in Jerusalem,” he said. “They all work creating a civil foundation for society.” The groups are nonpartisan and provide help wherever they can, Kurz said.
“Where there’s a humanitarian need, they take care of it without paying attention to religion,” he said. Guida Leicester, co-chairwoman of the CPJME, said Kurz will speak about how UNM students can help bring peace to the Middle East. “(He will cover) the most effective ways we UNM students can directly network … to encourage human rights, justice, nonviolent communication and social and environmental stability,” Leicester said. Kurz said his talk should encourage UNM students to take part in grassroots activism. He said American students on exchange programs in Jerusalem are also helping with his project. CPJME co-chairman Elvis Recinos said Israelis aren’t the only ones to blame in the ongoing Israel-Palestine conflict. He said
that after serving for IDF, Kurz offers a well-rounded perspective on the centuries-old fight. “Clearly, (the Palestinians) have done plenty of wrongdoing,” Recinos said. “What we’re seeking for is justice for both sides.” Recinos said the speech will emphasize the human element on both sides of the conflict. “We’re trying to make this as nonpartisan as possible, showing the reality of the situation,” he said. “It’s not just the plight of the Palestinians, or the plight of the Israelis, it’s the plight of humanity.”

UNM seeks degree nominees by Tricia Remark Daily Lobo
The Office of the University Secretary is accepting honorary degree nominations. The University awards honorary degrees to those who have made significant contributions to a certain field but don’t have the ultimate degree in that subject area. The Honorary Degree Committee, a subcommittee of the UNM Faculty Senate, picks degree recipients from nominations they receive. Tim McElvain, president of McElvain Oil and Gas Properties, received an honorary doctor of science degree in 2009 for his work in the field of geology. He also set up a foundation to help students at UNM study geology. “My geological research led to

the discovery of the Santa Fe impact crater and eventually to an honorary doctorate degree in geology,” McElvain said. “I continued my research, and in addition set up a foundation for the study of impact cratering. The foundation has helped fund students in their investigation of the possible impact structures near Santa Fe, N.M., and other areas around the world and solar system.” Dena Kinney, Honorary Degree Committee chair, said nominees who set up scholarships or foundations or do other community service projects are strong candidates for an honorary degree. “The committee is looking for outstanding contributions in various areas such as science, cultural studies, improvement to the community and service — service is very important,”
Honorary degree nominations Deadline Oct. 9 Office of the University Secretary Scholes Hall, room 103 Graduation.unm.edu she said. Up to three honorary degrees are awarded each year, Kinney said, and past recipients include Tony Hillerman in 1990 and Gov. Bill Richardson in 1998. Kinney said that there aren’t any set criteria for nominees. “What you’re trying to achieve is recognition by your peers or others in the University and in the community,” she said. Kinney said University staff,

faculty or administration members cannot get honorary degrees, because recipients shouldn’t just be remembered for their time at UNM. Kinney said faculty, students, community members and people who aren’t affiliated with the University can submit nominations. University Secretary Vivian Valencia said the Honorary Degree

Committee reviews and picks nominations, but the regents must approve recipients. The degrees are awarded at each spring commencement, she said. “Each honorary degree recipient sits on the stage at commencement as part of the platform group and is recognized individually by the (UNM) president,” Valencia said.

AF: Probably just in the audience. “The Batman-Superman Movie” was a kids’ movie. It was more geared towards kids, and the Joker was kind of sanitized. He was more of a goofy bad guy. In “The Dark Knight,” which was geared more for adults, he was just completely frightening and basically had no sense of humanity.

mistakes are made, you acknowledge them and deal with the consequences. Our focus is now preparing to play a very good Texas Tech team Saturday in Lubbock.” However, in a news conference at 7 p.m. Monday on the Lobos’ practice field, Locksley said the confrontation was no worse than getting in a fight with one of his brothers. “I’m not going to get into specifics. In the coaching offices, we have disagreements. We can agree to disagree. It should never get to the point that it got to,” he said. “I’d venture to say it wasn’t necessarily a punch.” Krebs said that the University won’t tolerate this type of behavior and that he verbally reprimanded Locksley and will follow up with a written letter. “It’s a mistake that can’t be repeated again,” he said. “We cannot condone coach Locksley’s actions. You simply cannot put your hands on another coach. That is simply not acceptable under any circumstance.” Krebs said he found out about the police report last Tuesday, but the Athletics Department waited until Monday’s announcement to formally address the issue. Defending his hire, Krebs said he doesn’t believe this incident is indicative of Locksley’s character. “I think there’s been a
tremendous amount of leadership exerted,” Krebs said. “People are being held accountable for their behavior, and this is a lesson for all of us.” This isn’t the first time Locksley and Gerald have locked horns. Earlier in the year, The Daily Lobo reported that the two had a verbal exchange after practice on Aug. 13. During that altercation Locksley pestered Gerald, continually advancing toward him as the wide receivers coach attempted to distance himself from Locksley. Eventually, Gerald walked off in the opposite direction. The next day, Gerald downplayed the exchange. He said it was simply a disagreement among coaches. “He’s the head coach, and I have to get my guys playing,” Gerald said. “That’s the extent of it. It’s not a big deal at all. I love the guy. He’s one of the best coaches I’ve been around.” Intense media scrutiny and a winless start allegedly contributed to the incident on Sept. 20, Krebs said. “Coaching is a high-stress business — an incredible amount of hours, time, commitment,” he said. “You’re in a very closed environment with your staff members. I have no doubt that the frustration over losing adds to that. In this business it is not uncommon for coaches to have heated discussions.”

In Thursday’s “DREAM aims to improve immigrants’ educations,” Kallie Red-Horse reported on a student rally to support the Development, Relief, and Education for Alien Minors Act, which, if passed, would grant undocumented high school graduates a chance to get a higher education. Readers on DailyLobo.com responded: by ‘Stephen’ Posted Thursday “The DREAM Act is a backward attempt at amnesty. Rewarding illegal families for breaking our laws is immoral and wrong. You say the kids were innocent and can’t be held accountable. What you fail to point out is these kids will be like anchor babies. They’ll be able to sponsor the same criminal parents once they become legal. I say send them back, and immigrate legally or not at all. Zero tolerance to all illegal immigration. The DREAM Act is a nightmare to Americans.” by ‘Advocate54’ Posted Thursday “Obviously, the anti-Mexican lobby is trying to hijack this excellent article about legislation that should be passed, and passed quickly. You cannot blame kids and young adults for the sins of their parents when they were brought here, some in diapers, others in their adolescent years, without the knowledge they were breaking any law, and a civil misdemeanor at that. These kids learned the language, assimilated, and are as American as any of us, except for that little ninedigit number. Many are in school studying for advanced degrees, with little hope of using their education once they graduate, and they are not receiving federal or state assistance of any kind. That is dedication, and should be rewarded with passage of the DREAM Act. The system’s broken, people.” by ‘mateo’ Posted Thursday “Love how they rationalize giving away our freedoms to illegal aliens. First off, there are plenty of kids right here that could be doctors, lawyers or politicians if they had the opportunity to attend a university like UNM. Unfortunately, they can’t. They don’t have the money, their families (while not considered poor) make just enough money to limit the financial assistance opportunities available. They may come from families that have a lot of children, and they don’t want to be a burden on their parents. Either way, these people are left behind, and they’re our own citizens. Don’t they deserve more opportunities than some criminals? by ‘thomas’ Posted Friday “I too have a dream. My problem is I have to pay for it myself. I suppose deep down I’m not opposed to the DREAM Act, if it were made available for American dreams. After all, it’s American tax dollars paying for it. We need to stop ‘caring’ for the world’s needy at the expense of our own needy right here in this country.” Join the discussion at DailyLobo.com

Locksley is not special, should be fired for poor performance Editor, UNM football head coach Mike Locksley should immediately resign or be fired. Locksley is becoming more of a distraction for the football program than a benefit to it. Personally, I am unsure of what Athletics Director Paul Krebs and UNM ever saw in Locksley from the beginning. He didn’t have head coaching experience on his resume. Locksley came from the University of Illinois as the
Nonsmokers need to be strong, confront bothersome smokers Editor, UNM’s recent decision to limit tobacco use on campus has become a point of contention among the entire student population, but no group has been more outspoken than UNM’s nonsmoking students. According to their multiple letters to the editor and their testimony offered to any peer within hearing distance, nonsmoking/ anti-smoking students feel that despite the fact that this long-awaited “restricted tobacco use” regulation has finally been instituted, it remains unenforced by campus security. While it is true that many inconsiderate
The human mind needs more durable form for space travel Editor, I read this week that the Search for Extraterrestrial Intelligence is celebrating its 50th birthday. I suppose the search for extraterrestrial intelligence is an interesting endeavor to pursue, but it’s largely an amateurish shot in the dark. Yet SETI has become almost a religion for many volunteers.
offensive coordinator. The Illini haven’t been a football powerhouse or even a perennial top-25 program. Since coming to UNM, Locksley has been charged with sexual harassment and wrongful termination charges dating back to May. These charges, I might add, are still pending. In addition to that, he’s winless in four games, one of which is to UNM’s rival NMSU, which is on the brink of being downgraded to an NCAA I-AA school for lack of fan support. Over the past four games, which I have watched, I haven’t seen improvement in any area to give me a shadow of hope for the future.
Now a report is out that Locksley allegedly committed battery on his wide receivers coach and recruiting coordinator, J.B. Gerald, on Sept. 20 during a coaches meeting. Battery charges against the head coach could deter potential recruits and their parents from considering UNM. I’m wondering what tremulous event will occur next with coach Locksley. These actions are reprehensible, and I would urge Athletics Director Paul Krebs to seek disciplinary action against coach Locksley.
students choose to ignore this new policy and continue to light up whenever and wherever they please, the majority of smokers on campus (however much they disdain the policy) have accepted the new rules, and only enjoy their butts in designated areas. For those people who have written to the Daily Lobo with their complaints regarding those few students who choose to smoke in “nondesignated areas” and whose “reckless” smoking has caused “allergic reactions” and “unpleasant smells” — I suggest that instead of outlining their bellyaches in the University paper, these folks should grow up and actually speak to the smokers that cause their discomfort. This may sound harsh, but I guarantee it will be far more effective. As a smoker, I recognize that my habit can
irritate or disturb those around me, so when I’m on campus I smoke only in designated areas or remote and private locations. During those few times that I smoke among or near a large group of people, I try to be as considerate as I can. If for any reason I feel, or am told, that my smoking is somehow causing another’s distress, I immediately extinguish my cigarette, and I know that I’m not the only smoker who reacts this way. So please, stop writing derogatory letters about UNM campus security — they are completely innocent. Instead, try my method — just ask the jerk to put out his smoke. The only way that smokers will change their behavior is if they know they are causing people distress in their direct vicinity.
Maybe it’s sort of like string theory, which may be pretty far off base but pushes the envelope of our feeble understanding of reality. I guess it pressures us to ask better questions, mainly. Given what we now grasp about the known universe, ancient-religion-based ideas, which guide our existing concepts of who we are, seem highly dysfunctional, if not childish. A better alternative to SETI, if we believe that human intelligence is worth preserving long after Earth becomes uninhabitable, might be to find a way to transfer the best aspects of our minds — including imagination,
artistic creativity, problem solving, compassion, humor etc. — into a more durable form than the human body, something that can travel through space indefinitely. Putting more brain power into robotics and gene engineering may eventually lead to that. That is, if a supernova blast or climate change doesn’t intervene in the course of life on Earth first.

NEW MEXICO DAILY LOBO
Tony Mark, who lives in Santa Fe, produced the film “Georgia O’Keeffe,” which debuted Sept. 19 on Lifetime Television. The film focuses on the artistic and romantic relationship between artist O’Keeffe and photographer Alfred Stieglitz. Stieglitz was showing O’Keeffe’s work without her permission at a gallery in New York when she confronted him and then fell for him. Daily Lobo: What is the movie “Georgia O’Keeffe” about, and how did this movie come into existence? Tony Mark: It’s about O’Keeffe and her relationship with Alfred Stieglitz. It’s a project that had been in development for quite some time with the executive producer Joshua Maurer over at Home Box Office, and when HBO decided not to make the movie, we took it over to Lifetime. DL: What were some of the prominent aspects of O’Keeffe’s life that you felt needed to be represented in this movie? TM: One of the things that was most important for us in making the film was to communicate the feeling of New Mexico, because New Mexico had a huge impact on Georgia when she came here. Because of that, it became very important to us as filmmakers to find a way to shoot the movie in New Mexico. We felt that it would be possible to find ways to suggest New York City or suggest upstate New York, but very, very difficult to find another location that could real-
ly effectively suggest the landscape of New Mexico. DL: How did you decide on the casting of O’Keeffe and Stieglitz? TM: Joan Allen was involved in this project from the very start. She had been involved as a producer from the beginning. As for the role of Stieglitz, as we thought about it, it turned out that Jeremy Irons was going to do a part on Broadway with Joan Allen in the beginning of 2009, and since they were already prepared to work together, when we proposed that they might want to work together on film before they work together on stage, Jeremy was very receptive to that. He is an extraordinary actor, and what is quite remarkable is that he bears an astonishing resemblance to Alfred Stieglitz. DL: How has the film been received so far after its debut on Lifetime? TM: It’s been received quite wonderfully. We had a premiere here at the Lensic (Performing Arts Center) as a benefit for the museum. You are playing to a built-in audience, since O’Keeffe is particularly popular in this part of the world. DL: Did you coordinate with the Georgia O’Keeffe Museum in the making of the movie? TM: We would never have been able to make the film without the cooperation of the museum. We consider ourselves very, very fortunate to have had the O’Keeffe Museum and its curator, Barbara Buhler Lynes, as allies when we were trying to convince the city and the state and the museum itself to allow us to tell this story. DL: Why did this movie have so much support from the museum?

TM: In general, I would say that we had a very good script by a Pulitzer-Prize-winning author named Michael Christopher. The film was a very intelligently told story. It did not pander to the lowest common denominator. It gave a lot of respect to Georgia as a person as well as an artist. It also gave a lot of respect to the complicated relationship she had with Stieglitz. I think, in the end, the fact that Joan Allen, who is an extremely accomplished actress and who was a champion of the movie, put her energy and the force of her personality behind the project, and spoke very eloquently on behalf of the project to the museum, really helped the museum to be convinced that we were going to be the right people to tell this story. DL: When I was watching the film I could feel O’Keeffe’s emotions seeping out of the movie and the story. How did you capture the raw emotion in the movie? TM: The key to that was in our choice of director, Bob Balaban. He is a director who is known as an actor’s director. He himself is an actor and has appeared in hundreds of movies. As an actor’s director, his focus has always been on giving the actors in front of the camera the kind of creative environment that will allow them to feel very comfortable in exploring their characters. As a result, the tone he sets on the set, the way he speaks to the actors, the kind of respect he has for performance, as opposed to special effects and

A year and a half ago, Felix Wurman wed classical music with the structure of a church service, and the Church of Beethoven was born. Since then, the church has developed and the congregation has grown to the point that Wurman has moved the weekly event from its original meeting space and added Wednesday night services. “The idea was to combine the good parts of church with the good parts of a concert,” Wurman said. “The good point of a church is it is something you can relay. That idea of a community that meets every week and listens to high-end chamber music, that idea was really appealing to me.” The service takes place in three parts, Wurman said. First, an ensemble plays a short classical music selection. Then, during a brief interlude, a featured poet reads his or her work to the audience. Finally, the ensemble finishes with a grand piece. “I’ve been working on this problem for years: how to get the atmosphere right,” he said. “The poet thing is a really great thing. It divides up the music — it’s better than having all music.” The church tries not to repeat musical works, so that the audience has something new to look forward to every time, Wurman said.

Church of Beethoven 1715 Fifth St. N.W. 10:30 a.m. Sunday, 6 p.m. Wednesday General admission $15, Student discount with ID www.ChurchOfBeethoven.org We’ll have modern music. We’ll have a folk ensemble. We just want to keep on putting on great shows.” And the church is gathering more followers who want to see those shows. Felberg said about 100 people attend each week. Wurman said the church moved from Fourth Street to Fifth Street to provide more space for the audience, and he also started a college night on Wednesdays at 6 p.m. “It’s short and perfect for students,” Wurman said. Admission for college night is $5. Felberg said students who normally listen to their classical music at home should come to the church instead. “You can hear music through a speaker, but it’s just not the same as hearing it come out of the instrument,” he said. “It’s a completely different experience, but it’s also the experience of sharing the music with other people.”

Sometimes classical music concerts tend to be on the longer side, so we try and combine the best of everything.” Wurman said when he started the church he operated on donations, but because of its increasing size, he’s charging admission. General admission on Sundays is $15, but students with a valid student ID pay $10. “People used to pass a hat,” Felberg said. “That after a while became impractical, so we started charging. Of late there has been a great core of volunteers that have been helping out. It’s simply grown in positive ways.” In addition to the classical music, coffee and treats are served after the concert. Felberg said food also helps establish a sense of unity. “We get a lot of return customers,” Felberg said. “It’s definitely developed into a community. I love performing there because the audience is close and so engaged.” The church has gotten favorable attention locally and was featured on National Public Radio last year. But, despite the organization’s success, Felberg said the church’s mission hasn’t gone commercial. “Our goal is simply to continue to have really great performances,” Felberg said. “We’ll have strictly classical.
