Harassment charges withdrawn by Isaac Avilucea Daily Lobo
Mike Locksley will probably take any victory he can at this point. While his Lobos are 0-6 on the field, Locksley was dealt a favorable off-field result on Monday. Locksley endured a very public battle after former administrative assistant Sylvia Lopez filed a sexual harassment complaint with the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission. Later, it was reported by the Albuquerque Journal that Lopez said she was replaced because Locksley wanted “younger gals” in the office to entice recruits. Monday, the University said all legal claims, as well as the EEOC charges against Locksley, were withdrawn — contrary to the report from KRQE Channel 13, which said the EEOC deemed the allegations “unfounded.” Both parties were able to resolve the dispute without the EEOC’s intervention, according to a University-issued press release. When the Daily Lobo
contacted Athletics Director Paul Krebs on Sunday, he didn’t substantiate what KRQE reported. Instead, he said he hadn’t heard about it. “The EEOC complaint is about to be resolved,” Krebs said. “I wasn’t in the office on Friday, but we expected that to be resolved and something to be forthcoming soon.” According to the press release, the University is looking forward to retaining Lopez’s services, but it didn’t specify where she would be working at the University. “Ms. Lopez has always been a strong performer and a loyal employee, and we are looking forward to continuing her employment with us,” the release said. “We are glad to have had the chance to utilize the steps in our EEOC policy in this situation. Resolving these issues amicably shows that the steps for resolution really do work when employees are equally as committed to using them as UNM is.” Krebs, who earlier said the University and Locksley would be vindicated, said all parties involved
can now put the issue behind them. “We are pleased we could clear the air and everyone involved can move forward in a positive direction,” he said in the press release. In the University-issued statement, Lopez recanted her previous position. She said that it’s unfortunate that the term “sexual harassment” was used in this case. “I truly wish the best for coach Locksley and hope he has a great season and career with UNM,” she said. “I regret that this misunderstanding may have created a negative perception of coach Locksley. I feel very positive about working for UNM and know I can be an asset to the University because of my years of experience and skills.” In a joint statement, Krebs and President David Schmidly proclaimed their unswerving loyalty to the Lobos’ first-year head coach. “We stand behind coach Locksley and know that he has performed, and continues to perform, his job in a professional and respectable manner and will do so in the future,” according to the statement.
About 50 UNM students from diverse backgrounds turned out Monday to show their support for Indigenous Day. Since 1934, the second Monday of October has been a federal holiday: Columbus Day. The Native American Studies Indigenous Research Group celebrated the sixth-annual Indigenous Day at UNM — instead of Columbus Day — with activities such as a Sunrise Ceremony and an Indigenous Day Declaration. At the Indigenous Day Declaration, NASIRG presented a petition calling for the official recognition of Indigenous Day, a celebration of the indigenous people present in the Americas before Columbus landed in 1492. Wyndsor Yazzie, NASIRG co-chair, said the group will give President David Schmidly the petition with student signatures and ask for UNM’s support. The petition has at least 60 signatures, Yazzie said. Jozi DeLeon, vice president of equity and inclusion, said she will encourage other UNM administrators to support Indigenous Day. “I’m going to be working very closely with the administration to see what we can do to formally make Indigenous Day happen,” DeLeon said. “I think it would set a great example in this state because of our Native population.” Beverly Singer, acting director of Native American studies, spoke to students and community members at the Indigenous Day Declaration in the SUB atrium. She said Columbus symbolizes the discovery of America, but that needs to change. “This land — this homeland that belongs to all of us — is a place that holds such promise, wealth and knowledge,” Singer said. “I truly believe in my heart that one of these days, our University will embrace that knowledge as well and add to the serving of what we offer here.” Yazzie said Columbus Day doesn’t accurately represent the history of
America, since indigenous people lived in the Americas before Columbus arrived. “Indigenous Day really acknowledges all the actual history of the ‘discovery of the New World,’” Yazzie said. “The mythology of Christopher Columbus discovering America and the histories that have been told about it always exclude the Native point of view. Acknowledging the indigenous people and saying that their voice counts is a big deal.” Yazzie said NASIRG wants recognition of Indigenous Day at the state level by this time next year. He said the group is working with the chairman of the All Indian Pueblo Council and the secretary of Indian affairs to achieve this goal. “We try to get out as much information as we can,” Yazzie said. “By putting this event together and other events throughout the year here on campus, we try to educate the student population and the surrounding communities about a lot of the issues that we face — political or social issues.” DeLeon said she attended the Indigenous Day Declaration and fully supports the holiday and the history behind it. “I told the students that I thought it was really the right idea to declare the celebration of Columbus Day as the celebration of Indigenous Day instead,” DeLeon said. “I think celebrating Columbus Day just doesn’t make sense, given the fact that American Indians have existed in this country long before Columbus ever landed on the shores of what is now the United States.” Singer said UNM is the perfect place to celebrate and raise support for Indigenous Day, because of the diverse students, staff and faculty. DeLeon said the University will probably support Indigenous Day, but she hasn’t formally talked with other administrators about it yet. “I cannot imagine that the University would not be supportive, given their stance on diversity and the University’s very deliberate efforts to support a diverse student population, especially our Native American population,” she said.
Art project stops the moving picture by Hunter Riley Daily Lobo
Taking pictures of movies is sometimes frowned upon in the art world, said UNM senior George Richardson. But Richardson said he photographed intense moments on the
Daily Lobo volume 114
silver screen for his latest art show, “Come With Me,” which is up at John Sommers Gallery through Friday. Richardson was working as a projectionist when he began haphazardly taking photographs of a movie. “We were projecting a pretty
obscure Russian science fiction film from the ‘70s,” he said. “I shot this image, and when I looked down at the camera LCD it just struck me, because it was these two characters engaged and just looking at one another, and there was so much expression and vulnerability on their

faces — and the subtitle beneath it read, ‘Come with me.’” Graduate student Roger Boulay, director of John Sommers Gallery, was in a class with Richardson when the project began. “I’ve seen him work on it over the past year and a half over the various stages of completion,” Boulay said. “I think it’s an interesting project, because what it sort of investigates is randomness. What will the visual significance of (the line) be in the movie?” Richardson has 20 images in the exhibit from films including “Star Wars,” “Terminator” and “Oh Brother, Where Art Thou?” “It’s really interesting to see how this has come to flourish in the gallery, because all these images have this one phrase in common, but in some way they sort of give us an insight to George’s interest in film and contemporary media,” Boulay said. Boulay said visitors to the gallery have enjoyed identifying the films and the moments depicted in the images. “That’s one of the fun things

about the show is, you go in, and immediately, I try to place it — ‘Have I seen this movie?’ and ‘What moment is it from?’” he said. “I think a lot of people, especially within the art community, have seen George working on this project in various stages, and it makes it really interesting to see the actual exhibit of the work.” Richardson said his interest in film allowed him to illustrate the delicate changes in emotion and tone on screen. “When this line happens, it’s sort of a keynote to this switch from one scene to another,” Richardson said. “There are kind of like these threshold moments between one decision and another. And when you’re watching them, it almost feels passive in a way, and as a viewer you may not pay attention to it.” “Come With Me” John Sommers Gallery Second floor of the Art Building Through Friday Free

From the web On Monday, the Daily Lobo ran an article featuring Messianic Jews celebrating the feast day Sukkot. Readers thought the story should have had more information. by ‘Paqid Yirmeyahu’ Posted Monday “It is sad that the official voice of the University of New Mexico is permitted to transform itself into a Christian promotional for a group that all elements of the Jewish community unanimously agree is intractably contradictory to Judaism. Since the editors are conspicuously ignorant concerning what constitutes legitimate and authentic Judaism versus phony ‘Judaism,’ you should consult an Orthodox rabbi before publishing articles that wildly mislead the public eagerly pre-inclined to believe these misrepresentations.” by ‘Randy’ Posted Monday “Actually, this Paqid character’s assessment of what is contradictory to Judaism can be found on his bizarre Web site. Go check it out if you ever wondered what a Jewish cult looks like.” by ‘MRav. Avner Solomon’ Posted Monday “The author of this article wrote, ‘The feast, usually held on the 15th day of September or October.’ In fact he should have written the following: ‘The feast is always held on the 15th day of the Hebrew month of Tishrei (in September or October).’” by ‘Chadwick Johnstone’ Posted Monday “The poster ‘Randy’ wrote in regarding some Web site: ‘Go check it out if you ever wondered what a Jewish cult looks like.’ I didn’t know any Jewish group could be considered anything more than a cult … though I don’t expect anyone else to agree with me considering the billions spent in brainwashing by the Jewish media.” by ‘karyn’ Posted Monday “Until your eyes have been open to the truth of who Yeshua (the Jewish Messiah) is, you will continue to walk in spiritual darkness. Pray and ask Hashem to remove the blinders from your eyes. Messianic Jews are following the complete Bible, both covenants. Our Lord Yeshua is spoken clearly of in both the older and newer testaments. He is the holy one of Israel.”

focused on Messianic Jews, who are considered Jews by only themselves. There were a number of inaccuracies from a Jewish point of view: The date of Jesus’ birth is unknowable, since it was not decided upon until long after his death, so their assertion that Sukkot was the time of his birth could be true or not. Who knows? Pilgrimage festivals ended with the destruction of the second temple 1,943 years ago (that was recorded). Further, the religious symbol of the holiday then and now is
not the ram’s horn as displayed in your photo. Please see the Hebrew Bible for an accurate description of the pilgrimage and then speak with Jewish folks at Hillel for information about how it is celebrated now. To trivialize this religious holiday through analogy to the balloon fiesta or the State Fair is offensive.

U.S. needs to recognize Iran’s depth by Pratik Mehta UWire
Iran confirmed last week that it is building a previously undisclosed nuclear-enrichment plant inside a military base near the city of Qum. Facing mounting international pressure for disclosure and inspection of its nuclear facilities, Iran has become the media and the U.S. government’s villain of choice — again. The American public has an unusual relationship with Iran. We always seem to be caught in one of three contradictory stances: deprecating it for its president’s comments and its potential to create nuclear weapons, wishing it to be the next haven for a liberal Western lifestyle or forgetting about it completely. At any moment, whatever stance we’re caught in seems to have more to do with what the media and government tell us than with actual developments. Now, with this latest development, there is good reason to be upset with Iran and to threaten new sanctions if it doesn’t open its nuclear facilities in the coming weeks, as the Obama administration has done. However, let’s take a step back. In late 2007, the U.S. Intelligence Community released its National Intelligence Estimate on Iran’s nuclear capabilities, judging with “high
confidence that in fall 2003, Tehran halted its nuclear weapons program,” including any covert uranium enrichment work. This estimate contradicted the previous one from 2005 and caused much delight over the supposed success of international pressure. Throughout 2008, much criticism was hurled at Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad for his Holocaust-denying comments, but otherwise little public attention was devoted to Iran. Earlier this summer, President Obama delivered his forwardlooking and hopeful Middle East speech in Cairo, inviting Iran and others in the region to renewed talks. Such aspirations were largely doused by news of Iran’s botched presidential elections. It seems fantastic that Iran has transformed from a nuke-hungry rogue, to a cooperative non-nuclear state, to a potential partner in maintaining peace in the Middle East, and now to an undemocratic theocracy, all in the span of four years. However, in their pursuit of ulterior commercial and political goals, that’s how the media and government have portrayed it. Of course, no one knows for sure how to feel about Iran; how to piece together its many, often contradictory, forces; how to understand it as a whole, with its people, its government, its religion, its political
tensions, its economic ambitions. Quick attempts to reach such certainty are doomed to failure. Instead, we must view Iran through several interwoven perspectives. We must understand that its internal conflicts — between its supporters of democracy and its religious authority, between its liberalizing and its traditional forces, between its young population and its older government — are far from settled. If Iran itself does not know in which direction it is headed, how can we purport to understand its true nature and to portray it in a single phrase as we’ve done in years past? This is an old lesson that we’ve learned several times and that we’re still learning, whether it applies to China, Russia, Afghanistan or Iran. There are multiple layers in each story. Some are compelling when you’re standing on the bully pulpit, some evoke hope for the future and some you don’t quite understand. However, if we are to take decisive action, such as imposing new sanctions, they must all be re-evaluated and foreseen. We cannot act based solely on simplified, one-dimensional caricatures. Pratik Mehta is a columnist for the Washington Square News, serving New York University in New York City.

“People in high school, a lot of them tend to dress the same. When you come here you never know what you are going to see. I wear what I wear and watch what people wear.” Jonathan said he keeps up with a number of popular trends, but his favorite up-and-coming style is the skinny jean. Jonathan said he buys brand-name clothing when he can, because it is classier and has greater name recognition, but he said whatever looks good and what matches can also make or break an outfit.

Sounds from page 3 you compare us with other Swedish bands, there is only a handful of them that can tour America, and I don’t think any other Swedish band at this point is doing an extensive tour like this. It feels that we’re in a good place. DL: Can you say a little bit about how this album differs from your other albums? JB: I think with this album, we wanted to do a real album, and I think we accomplished that. Most people these days are doing the whole iTunes thing, where you can just download a song instead of an album. But we felt like the two previous albums we had were more song-based, but this time we wanted to do a full album, and we are very proud of it. I guess the two previous albums were more party-based, and I think we’ve grown as songwriters for each album, and you can totally see the development of a band if you listen to three albums back-to-back. From the first album, we were straight out of high school and forming a band. We wanted to drive around and party and get drunk. And in the second album, it was more like realizing that we were actually doing something, and we talk a lot about being away from our families and being on tour all the time but still having the party life. And if you listen to the third album, it’s the band growing up, and we’re in this for real. DL: What are some of the differences you notice between playing shows in the U.S. and in Europe? JB: I have a hard time generalizing America as one thing, because it is so big, and it’s really different from the coasts to the midcountry. When we tour Europe we tour different countries, and it’s obviously different, and I feel the same thing here. Boston is different from El Paso. You can see a lot of this

country. It’s not like you’re a Swedish tourist and you go to New York for a week. You really dig down deep and get to see a lot of stuff, so it’s fun. DL: Have you ever been to Albuquerque before? JB: When we played with No Doubt, it was a really cool venue in the middle of a desert town. I think I went to some after party at a house, and it was a bubble Jacuzzi party. On our last run we stopped here on our day off, and it was some good times. DL: Where did you get the name for the latest CD? JB: It was actually the drummer who came up with the name. It originates from a whole mess we were in last summer. We were ready to go into the studio early (in the) summer, and we didn’t get in until the fall, because we had some legal issues because we were getting out of a label. It’s a long, kind of boring story, but Sweden was our mother label and we weren’t happy with the whole situation around the world. It took us a long time, but we got out of the contract, and we put it out ourselves, and during that period we would get offers from really major labels who wanted to give us really long recording contracts. And we were in a pathway — we could either do it ourselves or we could go with the major label road and get stuck in the system. So we took the leap to go down that first road.

“If it looks good, I’ll buy it. Oh, but if it’s cheap, too.” A subdued influence of urban style guides Brian’s look. He said he and friends enjoy searching the mall for new fashions, but the best place to look for unique clothing is at Buffalo Exchange or other thrift stores, because clothing there is less likely to be seen on someone else. He said his fresh look is maintained by taking chances with unusual clothing that might not go over well.
