Gallup students: Schmidly ignored us

Bjones36@unm.edu President Schmidly and his administration received their latest “no-confidence vote” in a town hall meeting UNM-Gallup students held Friday. Student Senate President Josephine Brown said she hopes the vote brings ongoing issues to light. “Now we are waiting to see what happens next,” she said. “Hopefully, we can work as a team to meet the needs of the students here at UNMGallup and UNM-Zuni.” This latest no-confidence resolution marks Schmidly’s fourth. UNM faculty voted no confidence in him Feb. 25, 2009 followed by GPSA on March 3, 2009 and the KUNM volunteers Aug. 26, 2009. The resolution said Schmidly and his staff repeatedly ignored meeting requests, provided improper leadership to assist the school’s executive director, ignored complaints of racial discrimination by his staff and expressed a general disregard for issues important to Gallup students. A panel that included Breda Bova, the president’s chief of staff, discussed the grievances listed in the Aug. 25 resolution on Schmidly’s behalf. Bova said that the University has taken steps to improve Gallup’s campus climate. “The success of all of the students on the Gallup and Zuni campuses is our top priority and substantive steps have been taken to address the many issues they feel impede that success,” Bova said in a memo addressed to Gallup student leadership. Since Joan Green replaced former Student Services Director Paul Kraft, things have began to improve, Brown said. She said under Kraft’s leadership, students lacked basic resources, such as tutoring. Nearly 350 UNM-G students participated in a Student Senate-conducted survey about what resources they’d like have on campus. Brown said they plan to use the data to track the University’s progress at handling the grievances listed in the resolution. She said she wants the curriculum committee to add more evening and weekend classes to accommodate students who work full time. Bova said Green has taken measures to ensure student success, like the development of a veteran’s center. She said Green also plans to hire a program manager for the child-care facility. “Green has been working with students on a regular basis and developed a protocol within the office to work with students, as well as developing a database of names of students who have requested accommodation letters for fall 2010,” Bova said.

Lessons paused to address budget by Ruben Hamming-Green firstname.lastname@example.org
Instructors and TAs took a stand Thursday and told their students what they see as failed administrative decisions: budget cuts, rising tuition rates and University privatization. Liza Minno Bloom, a member of Graduate Employees Together, said the discussions were part of the National Day of Action to Defend Public Education, a campaign to raise awareness. “People don’t know the severity of the budget cuts,” she said. “Right now, it’s a 3.2 percent budget cut. ... Next year they’re proposing a 5 percent budget cut. That’s massive. That’s going to be pretty devastating, and people don’t know about it.” Minno Bloom said some people have a misperception of how severely cuts will affect academics. “(The administration) really framed discussions as if we had to have 3.2 percent cuts across the board,” she said. “There are other more creative ways I think we could be solving some of the budget problems without going to academic lines.” Provost Suzanne Ortega said that she supported the day of action. “It is important that all constituents and citizens take part in this important dialogue. ... There is a long history of using class time to engage in important discussions of relevance to students,” she said. “I support this, so long as out-ofclass time of this sort does not take
up so much time that there is insufficient time to cover specific course material.” Undergraduate student Sean van Hoose said he hadn’t heard about the issues being discussed until his teacher, Linda Hurley, brought them up in class. “I agree completely with what they’re saying,” he said.
Lissa Knudsen, GPSA president, said it’s crucial to protect academics. “The academic mission of the University is being de-prioritized in comparison to other priorities that are not necessarily about education and helping people to become intellectual and grow,” she said. “It’s rather about being cogs and human
capital.” Knudsen said administrators are not looking at the bigger picture. “The regents and the administration are very behind, creating a legacy from their time here of edifices and brand new buildings,” she said. “But what good do those do if you don’t have any faculty to fill them?”

Report: Cops chase pole-wielding patient
On Sept. 7 at about 7 p.m., UNMPD responded to north campus regarding an escaped patient from the Children’s Psychiatric Center of UNMH. The report said one officer informed another that the subject was seen on the west side of the Ronald McDonald house, but had run away heading west. Soon after, officers located the man jumping a fence in a construction zone at the Children’s Center at 1210 University Blvd.
N.E. and followed, according to the report. The man allegedly armed himself with a 4-foot metal pole and yelled, “Come on pigs. Let’s see what you got,” the report said. According to the report, officers drew their Tasers and pointed them at the man, advising him to drop the pole. The report said officers warned the subject they would use the Tasers on him if he did not drop the pole. After a few seconds, the subject dropped the pole and attempted to flee the scene but was arrested shortly after a brief strug-

gle, which left officers with minor lacerations, the report said. The suspect will be charged with resisting and evading police officers, as well as aggravated assault on a police officer, according to the report
Man reports busted car window, stolen bag On Sept. 13, at 11:42 a.m., UNMPD met with a male student, 20, at 2500 Campus Blvd. N.E. The student told police he parked his car in the lot at 1414 University
Blvd. at about 2 p.m., before going to football practice. Upon returning to his vehicle five hours later, he found his driver’s window broken and his backpack missing, the report said. The damage to his vehicle is estimated at $250, and the backpack and its contents were valued at $235, according to the report.
Police respond to alleged wallet, cell phone theft On Sept. 8, a student, 21, reported stolen property to UNMPD.
The victim told police that she was changing in the locker room of Johnson Center when she put down her wallet and cell phone. The wallet contained student and military IDs, cash and a Rio Grande Zoo pass, according to the report. After changing, she noticed the items, valued at around $440, were missing, the report said.

Obama selects UNM prof. to serve on board by Laurel Brishel Prichard email@example.com
President Obama nominated UNM law professor Gloria Valencia-Weber to a national board that helps impoverished people get legal services. The United States Senate chooses five members and the president chooses six members of the 11-member Legal Services Board. The board visits legal service offices across the country to assist with the
development of better techniques to provide legal help. “I feel really honored to be selected by Obama for this appointment,” Valencia-Weber said. “The only other academic person who teaches in a law school was the dean of Harvard Law School. I feel fortunate in the company that I have been placed.” In a statement issued to UNM Today, New Mexico Senator Jeff Bingaman said Valencia-Weber deserved the appointment. “Gloria Valencia-Weber has had

an extremely distinguished career at the UNM School of Law,” he said. “She brings an expertise to the Legal Services Board that will benefit the entire country.” Before joining the UNM law program, Valencia-Weber was on the Board of Indian Legal Services in Oklahoma and helped create the Indian law certificate program. Since coming to UNM law school in 1992, Valencia-Weber has been a driving force in increasing the number of Indian law courses offered at UNM.

It’s no coincidence that the Indian Law Program, which has been integrated into the law-school curriculum, is one of the best in the country, ValenciaWeber said. “The on-the-ground knowledge of how legal services are delivered to Native Americans is different from urban areas where people just get on the subway to get to their legal services office,” she said. The Legal Service Corporation, a nonprofit corporation, was founded in 1974. It’s one of the largest legal aide

suppliers for impoverished Americans. The corporation’s $342 million budget funds 137 payees and organizes 918 legal offices across the country, according to its website. Valencia-Weber said she will do her part to make LSC efforts’ more visible. “There are increasing numbers of poor people in this country,” she said. “More of them lose their jobs, houses and a whole set of important family life qualities, and including in some cases, people in danger of losing their children.”

Schoolyard heroes honored by Julie Watson Associated Press
CARLSBAD, Calif. â€” Children returning Monday to an elementary school where a gunman wounded two girls on a playground cheered and hugged construction workers who police said knocked down the shooter as he struggled to reload his gun. Hundreds of parents, students and teachers â€” including the two bandaged girls â€” gave a standing ovation to the three workers during a family picnic at Kelly Elementary School. A shout of â€œViva Kellyâ€? rang out three times, and the men were given gift baskets and handmade cards from the children, including one that read: â€œDear Heroes: Thank You.â€? â€œWeâ€™re not here today about a tragedy. What weâ€™re doing here today is celebrating a miracle,â€? Principal Tressie Armstrong said at a news conference held at a park near the school Monday, three days after the attack.
Youngsters wearing the school color of kelly green and parents with bouquets attended the picnic in a grassy field next to the playground. Matthew Keller came with his wife and 8-year-old son, who witnessed the attack. â€œHe was ready to go back,â€? Keller said of his son. â€œIt was a scary experience for him. Heâ€™s been open about talking and he wanted to get back to talk to his friends.â€? Janitors had cleaned blood from the sidewalk over the weekend, and counselors met Monday with teachers and were available to talk with students shaken by the attack. Police remained on heightened patrol, but school officials were trying to make the day one of gratitude, not fear. The school for kindergartenthrough-sixth-graders serves one of the wealthiest communities in the United States, a generally crimefree area about a 30-minute drive north of San Diego noted for its scenic beaches and luxury resorts such as La Costa, which has hosted major tennis and golf tournaments.
Brendan Oâ€™Rourke, 41, of Oceanside was arrested Friday for investigation of attempted murder and remained jailed without bail. Detectives were preparing to present the case to the San Diego County District Attorneyâ€™s Office for possible charges. Police believe Oâ€™Rourke armed himself with a .357-magnum revolver, jumped a fence and opened fire toward the crowded playground. The two girls, ages 6 and 7, were each shot in an arm. Construction workers building a school cafeteria chased the gunman. Police said Carlos Partida jumped in his pickup truck and rammed the man, knocking him down. He and others held the man for police, authorities said. The gunman was fumbling to reload when he was struck, and his poor gun handling may have saved lives, police Chief Gary Morrison said. Police believe four to six shots were fired. The gun was registered to Oâ€™Rourke but investigators were unsure where he obtained it, the chief said.
lic-private partnerships,â€? she said. â€œItâ€™s really insidious, and itâ€™s a national trend.â€? She said this generally takes the form of research funding. â€œIt makes up the dollars that the University doesnâ€™t have to these private research foundations,â€? Minno Bloom said. â€œThere are tons of restrictions on what kind of subjects people can teach, what kind of results they put out. ... It has a detrimental effect on academic freedom.â€? Ortega said that outside funding is important for research.
â€œPrivate support enables faculty members to pursue their research interests,â€? Ortega said. â€œWe would hope that such funds complement rather than replace public funding.â€? Knudsen said having fewer graduate and teaching assistants teaching classes affects education quality. â€œThe last budget cuts that went down disproportionately affect TAs and GAs, and that affects their students,â€? she said. â€œIt means weâ€™re going to have larger classes and less teachers available.â€?
from page 1
Ortega said that new buildings promote UNMâ€™s academic mission. â€œFaculty research depends on state-of-the-art labs and equipment,â€? she said. â€œLikewise, student learning is enhanced by classrooms that allow professors to effectively use state-of-art instructional technology.â€? Minno Bloom said she is against â€œuniversity privatization.â€? â€œNationally, during these times of â€˜budget crisesâ€™ â€Ś one of the solutions that public institutions, generally, and public universities, specifically, look to are these pub-

Letter Spay and neuter feral cats to reduce burden on taxpayers Editor, It seems that there is a lack of attention given in our communities to the problems faced by our local animal populations, particularly feral cats. Yes, they do exist, and no, they are not just to be found in certain areas of town. It is estimated that of the 82 million cats that exist as pets nationally, about 82 percent have been spayed/neutered. In an equally large population of feral cats, only about 2.3 percent are fixed, which only increases the animal overpopulation problems we face. Scientists have said the majority of those cute kittens that show up in shelters are the offspring of feral cats. Currently, the only option that seems to exist in many people’s minds is to just call Animal Welfare and request that these cats be taken away. This action ultimately leads to a huge number of deaths since feral cats are wild, and, thus, unsocialized and cannot be adopted. As a result, being sent to a shelter is usually a death sentence for a feral cat. So how do we save these feral cats and not have them be a menace to human society? The answer is the practice of Trap-Neuter-Return, where feral cats are trapped, taken to a clinic/vet where they are sterilized, vaccinated, and ear-tip marked for identification purposes and then returned to their colony environment. Last weekend, Animal Humane had its monthly feral cat clinic to perform this process, where over the course of less than eight hours, 145 cats got fixed, breaking the previous record of about 120. Why should you care? More fixed feral cats means that less “abandoned” kittens will fill up shelters posing more of a financial burden on taxpayers. More importantly, though, is that fixed wild cats can live better lives, experiencing better health overall and a large reduction in those same behaviors that grab the negative attention of humans. Fixed feral cats roam less and make less noise, particularly as there are fewer females in heat attracting the obnoxious meows of males. Trap-Neuter-Return needs to be common knowledge, and for those people that claim they are animal lovers, this practice is the perfect way to prove it. There are options if one looks, and together we all need to work toward a better human-animal existence in New Mexico and around the nation. Siobhan Degnan UNM student

Letters ‘Tea baggers’ have hijacked orginal Tea Party message Editor, I respect the original libertarian Tea Party of Rep. Ron Paul, Adam Kokesh and Gary Johnson. I applaud their opposition to the territorial pissing in Iraq, Afghanistan and Pakistan, their support of individual civil liberties and the U.S. Constitution, and their libertarian stances on social issues. As for the Christian tea baggers who jumped on the Tea Party bandwagon — such as Sarah Palin and her cackle of rads like Susana Martinez, Jan Brewer, Sharon Angle and Christine O’Donnell — they come off as hypocritical in their positions. Is the Tea Party a libertarian non-religious movement or a radical Christian conservative movement? The tea baggers are always talking about freedom, liberty and the U.S. Constitution. That is, if you are a white, Christian, conservative American. Then they have a few exceptions. The tea baggers want the tyrannical federal government to stay the hell out of their private lives and health care, yet they mostly support a federal ban on abortion and the evils of monogamous gay marriage. These tea baggers are pro-life, yet they are mostly pro-war, too. Tea baggers support the failed war on drugs; the real Tea Party sees it for the sham it is. They rant
Rushed meeting an attempt to sneak proposition through Editor, The SFRB Task Force’s decision is janky. Yes, that’s right; it’s janky. This letter is a response to the Daily Lobo article, “ASUNM hastily passes fee resolution.” If you are only reading this to find out what the word janky means, you will probably give this article about as much thought as the Student Fee Review Board was allowed to have concerning the monumental ruling it is being required to make. And for those of you only reading this because you are interested in the word janky, I will say that in this case the word means sketch, messed up, wrong or just outright crazy. That exactly describes this situation. ASUNM called an emergency meeting late Wednesday night, and according to Sen. Melissa Trent, the senators were allowed
about spending and the budget deficit, but they mostly support the costly failed terror war and Bush’s costly tax cuts. Tea baggers support the terror war, while the Tea Party sees it as a boondoggle for arms deals, heroin smuggling and the military-industrial complex. These Christian tea baggers don’t seem to understand the concept of separation of church and state. When Dr. Laura recently went off on the radio, sputtering the Nword 11 times, Palin tweeted, “Don’t retreat, reload.” Gurl! Dr. Laura’s First Amendment right to use racial epitaphs was infringed? Tea baggers don’t seem to have a good understanding of the U.S. Constitution and its amendments. A few months ago Palin tweeted, calling on peaceful Muslims to repudiate the ground zero mosque. It turns out it was neither located at ground zero, nor was it an Islamic mosque. Former Gov. Palin has endorsed former Rep. Steve Pearce. Pearce recently questioned whether President Obama is really an American citizen. Twenty percent of Americans and 46 percent of Republicans believe Obama is a Muslim Marxist terrorist usurper. Pearce’s campaign website states, “The U.S. Constitution protects our right to prayer and against the government halting expressions of faith,” yet Pearce was disappointed that Obama endorsed building a mosque near ground zero (he didn’t) ... and the location should be moved farther away from ground zero. Really? How far should it be moved? I
am not as disappointed by the disastrous failed war/hunt for Osama bin Laden and weapons of mass destruction in Afghanistan and Iraq that has cost more than a trillion borrowed dollars, not to mention the deaths of thousands of humans. I am more disappointed by a multi-faith community center where New York teenagers can get off the streets to play basketball; moms can take kids swimming in the summer; people can exercise, take a cooking class and attend a bereavement group; attend a play; go to a concert, and oh, yeah, pray on Fridays. Scandalous! I was stunned and disappointed to hear my Republican friends and family bleating the talking points about the Hamas ground zero mega terror mosque, how Islam is evil and their fear of Obama imposing Sharia law. Terror is the use of fear or violence for political gain, and radical Islam does not have a monopoly on terrorist tactics. The radical Christian tea baggers talk about “taking this country back!” Do they want to take it back to the 1950s (pre-civil rights), 1861 (pre-Civil War), 1776 (all white men are created equal)? Do they want to take it back to the economic collapse of the fall 2008? It is time to move past these decrepit political parties and ideologies of the left and right. It’s time to take this country forward, not backward.
minimal time to review this drastic policy change. In that time, they were expected to not only review the proposition themselves, but also most were concerned enough that they attempted to gather organizations and students’ opinions. The only reason anyone was made aware of this issue is because of Sen. Trent and the other two senators’ strong commitment to equal representation. All three voted against the resolution, even though many accused them of being opposed to greater undergraduate representation. When examined, this situation sounds like some sort of sketch top-secret operation that is trying to sneak a considerable change through before anyone can realize just how crazy it really is. Let’s take a look at the current situation: Right now, there are three graduate students and four undergraduate students composing the board, which, by the way, controls upwards of $9 million worth of student fees. By simple observation, we can see that
undergraduates already make up the board’s majority. If the proposed change goes through, the numbers would change to seven undergraduates and two graduates. While this initially seems to be a wise option, it is totally unreasonable. If you claim to be in favor of equal representation, you can not possibly support this proposition. By making this change, the graduate students would be outnumbered and underrepresented. It is unjust and does not give graduate students their fair share of representation. If any action is to be taken here, it needs to be after careful deliberation and examination of the effects of the decision.

Cameron MacInnis UNM student Editor’s Note: Trent was quoted as saying that she had only an hour to review the resolution. She didn’t say that all senators were able to view the resolution for only an hour.

Consider skipping ‘I considered smiling’ by Graham Gentz

Dear cast and crew of “I Considered Smiling,” The Desert Rose Playhouse and everyone: There is nowhere to begin. “I Considered Smiling” fails on every level. It suffers from all weakness and no strength. There is no volume, no energy, no enunciation and absolutely no direction. It has all the life of a firstweek high school drama rehearsal and numerous other problems (see “Why it was so bad”). This is not a euphemism or metaphor. That’s what I honestly thought I was seeing. A very wise man, George Cooper, once said, “If you can’t hear it and can’t understand it, it’s not theater.” This was in no way a bad play. It wasn’t a play at all. To make people pay for this, in my case $12, was an absolute travesty. How did it ever get this far? Did truly no one realize what they were doing? Did no one have the balls to say that something wasn’t right? Did everyone involved in the project really not know any better? The show failed to go up last year, so maybe that was a sign. There is no excuse for this. This is not a stage reading. And even if it was, you don’t charge people to watch it. To the playwright, Theodore Jackson: If you’ve written eight 10-minute one acts, do you really have to use all eight? Some of these pieces are so unedited — conflict resolution and basic character motivations are so mangled — that I would hate to see what you’ve decided is not good enough for the stage. Where was the oversight? At least a few of the actors should have known

better. Some are members or even graduates from the UNM theater department. What is going on?
Was it just the fault of an inexperienced director? I honestly thought the cast was in high school, but upon reading the program was horrified to realize many were actually older than me. There was one 13-year-old actor, (Parker Sage Smith), but he was one of the better parts of the cast. This certainly wasn’t his fault. Is there not a Board of Directors for the “Desert Rose”? Is there not a single person who thought what was happening was wrong — that this was an incoherent, ugly mess that wasn’t just missing something; it was missing everything. So please, take Cooper’s words to heart. As an actor, be aware at all times of how you move, look and sound. If you’re going to move onstage, know where you’re moving, how you’re moving and why you’re moving. If you want to say or do something, let the audience know that you want and mean to do it. It’s the audience you’re performing to, so perform to them. If your audience can’t see you, we don’t care. If the audience can’t hear you, we don’t care. And when the audience doesn’t care, you’ve lost them. Then you’re not creating anything. The audience isn’t captivated. They’re just being polite. I respectfully ask that you take the hint from a year ago and stop this production immediately. Or, barring that, you stop charging a fixed dollar amount and change it strictly to a “pay what you will” affair. I sincerely hope you will learn from this experience so that your future performances can be at a professional level. Best, Graham
Why it was so bad, according to theater columnist Graham Gentz: Acting:
• Mumbling and stumbling
around stage stiffly without purpose • No energy • Failure to face the audience Writing: • Uninvolving and drab • Grating dialogue resembles bad improv • Empty of basics of conflict resolution Directing • Nonexistent I hold UNM to a high, professional standard. I honestly believe there is talent, intellect and power in our little desert town. With 35 theater companies and performance spaces, at least ambition seems to agree with me. We get talented people stuck here in the basin of Route 66 from the East Coast or West lured in by cheap school and living, making a phenomenal amount of theater in Albuquerque possible. With brilliance like Blackout Theatre or Paul Ford or the experience of Henry Avery or David Richard Jones, the caliber of theater that has been performed in Albuquerque is positively breathtaking. So why is it that this was allowed to happen?
Collectors capture history in square inches by Alexandra Swanberg firstname.lastname@example.org
It might have started in Great Britain, but it’s become a stamp of Americana. Stamp collecting is practiced across the nation, and the Albuquerque Philatelist Society is the epicenter for local collectors. The organization has begun prepping for NewMexPex2010, a twoday event geared for those going postal for the square-sized postmarks. Thomas Clinkenbeard, the society’s president, said collectors are captivated by the historical significance a stamp represents at the time it’s issued. “For me personally, and other folks who collect, we gain knowledge of the printing process, when stamps were issued, but also what is behind that stamp — what that represents,” he said. “You know why they were issued, why this particular person or event, why they picked the pictures, why they chose it for that time.” John DeBoo, the society’s librarian, said the exhibition will present collections categorized according to the chosen theme. “There are certain rules to follow as far as how the material is presented and organized, and that gets to be quite anal,

to me,” he said. “It’s like the whole world is there, from left to right. That’s how stamp exhibiting tends to be, as far as what people exhibit.” Don Swartz, a member who collects stamps from across the world, said stamps reflect countries’ values and interests. “The subjects do cross boundaries, but at the same time, it’s what’s interesting to that country,” he said. “Those based out of Russia had a lot more of the Warsaw Pact stuff during that time, so you could see the Cold War even in the stamps — the inflation rate periods. It’s just a microcosm of the world.” For those composing thematic collections for the exhibition, stamp arrangement is a vital aspect. Clinkenbeard said his composition mirrors the passing of time. “The postal history would tell me more about what’s on the covers, where a thematic (arrangement) is going to give me a storyline of whomever I’m showing or whatever I’m showing on that stamp,” he said. “I’m using the stamps in telling that story.” Swartz said stamp collecting helps him escape from stress. “For me, it’s seeing the filled page. It gives you a sense of accomplishment,” he
said. “It’s a chance to get away when stress starts eating at you. The stamps are going to take you where they’re going to take you. Franklin Delano Roosevelt during World War II was working on his stamps to keep from becoming overworked.” Printing methods have changed over time to produce stamps at a much higher rate. Nowadays, stamp collectors prefer engraved stamps. DeBoo said older stamps are more valuable. “The beauty of the engraving is just fascinating,” he said. “These people actually sat with tiny, intricate tools and were able to hand-engrave these things. Now most of these are done by a computer, and they look OK, but there’s something in the old ones that become, to me, pieces of art.”
