The checkered flag might wave early for a team of race car-building students. The Formula Society of Automotive Engineers is an annual international collegiate engineering competition where students design and build their own race cars. The School of Engineering plans to cut funding to the program that sends a UNM team to the competition. It’s supported the group since 1998. It costs $55,000 to run the program. Students raise $25,000 of the funds primarily through donations from Sandia National Labs and the Unser Racing Museum. Last week Arup Maji, interim dean of the School of Engineering, guaranteed to pay UNM’s summer portion — $30,000 — for the next two years. But in 2011, the team will have to fend for itself over the summer, or possibly shut down, Maji said. “I am saddened that enthusiastic students might not have this opportunity, because some students certainly look forward to and are very energized by it,” Maji said. “Because I am interim dean and the financial challenges that we face, I am not in a position right now to commit summer salary for 2011.”

The team’s project manager, Joseph Conroy, and deputy project manager, Niki Naber, started two petitions to voice concern for the future of the program. The petitions have received at least 40 signatures, Conroy said. Of the $30,000 provided by the School of Engineering, $25,000 goes to the summer salary of the team’s director, John Russell. According to the UNM salary book, Russell makes $117,513 a year. Russell said 15 students participate in UNM’s FSAE, and 220 students have completed the program since it started. The program lasts a full year, including the summer term. If the program is not funded in the summer, Russell said the success of the program will suffer. “One year of not conducting the program kills all the continuity necessary for a successful program,” Russell said. “Would an interim university president think of canceling football for a year while he waited for a new university president to be appointed?” Steven Carpenter, a junior in the School of Mechanical Engineering, was going to start FSAE program in the spring, but the program has been taken off of LoboWeb.

Growers market features live music, local fare by Andrew Beale Daily Lobo

A growers market, complete with a solar-powered band, a balloonist and more than a dozen local food vendors, will take over Johnson field on Saturday. Sustainability Studies Program Coordinator Terry Horger, who organized the event, said the growers market emphasizes environmental consciousness and local produce. She said the market is aimed at students because there are other growers markets that target the wider

community. “We really are trying to attract the people from campus, as opposed to, let’s say, the rest of the city,” she said. “We’re really trying to focus on the students, staff and faculty on campus.” Horger said this will be the only growers market for the fall, but the Sustainability Studies Program plans to make it a weekly event next semester. “Even though this is a small growers market, and unfortunately it’s the only one we’re having this semester, we’re hoping that by the

spring we’ll be having them on a more regular basis,” she said. The Sustainability Studies Program will partner with La Montañita Co-op to raise funds for future growers markets. “The thought is that we will sell Co-op memberships, and so for those members … whatever money they spend at the Co-op, 1 percent of their sales will come back to us,” she said. Bruce Milne, program director of the Sustainability Studies Program, said Sustainability Studies worked for about a month to set up this

UNM hosts free e-waste recycling Staff Report Daily Lobo

UNM community members can get their electronic waste recycled free of charge on campus this Saturday. UNM Recycling, NetImpact and the Staff Council Environs Committee teamed up to host the third annual UNM E-waste Recycling Event, where students, faculty and staff can recycle old cell phones, radios, microwaves, VCRs, DVD Players and more for free. Recycling old televisions, however, will cost $10. Linda McCormick, president of UNM Recycling, said electronic waste can hurt the environment.

“If they’re not recycled, then they can have a profound negative impact on the environment, because they typically contain heavy metals like lead or copper in the solder, tin — things like that,” she said. McCormick said Albuquerque hosts two similar e-waste events each year for the general public. Also, there are two companies in the city that accept e-waste throughout the year — Albuquerque Recycling and Enchantment Recycling. All of the e-waste collected Saturday will be given to Albuquerque Recycling, McCormick said. She said the company makes a profit on the items. “The reason that it’s free for everything is that there’s enough

growers market. He said the program needs additional staff before they can run the market on a weekly basis. “We’ve had seven of these events so far,” he said. “But to do it on a regular basis means we would have to have a dedicated staff person, so that’s been difficult for us to put together from existing funds.” He said the funds from the Coop program will go to hire a staff member to coordinate the growers markets. Madeline Hastings, who runs Duke’s Raspberry Ranch, will sell

He said the program ran as a one semester course before 2004, but it wasn’t as successful as the three-semester model. “For what I could teach in one semester, there wasn’t enough time to build a car,� Russell said. The FSAE competition takes place in seven locations around the world — with one in Michigan and California, Russell said. Because of an increasingly tightening budget, the UNM team traveled to California last year to save money, even though 40 fewer teams competed. In Michigan’s 120-team competition, UNM’s FSAE team placed 39th in 2004, 14th in 2005, and 60th in 2006 and 2007. In 2008, UNM came in 24th in California’s 80-team competition.

Horger said the van can power a full band for about two and a half hours. “We bought a used cargo trailer, and we retro-fitted it with a solar panel,� she said. “They plug all their

instruments into the solar powered van, and they’ve got all the power they need.� Horger said he market will attract students to local growers and encourage them to eat more local food. “What’s important about the growers market is that we’re trying to bring local, organic food and local vendors onto campus and to teach them about the importance of local food,� she said.

News in brief WASHINGTON (AP) — In the largest single strike at Mexican drug operations in the U.S., federal officials on Thursday announced the arrests of more than 300 people in raids across the country aimed at the newest and most violent cartel. La Familia has earned a reputation for dominating the methamphetamine trade and displaying graphic violence, including beheadings. U.S. officials said the cartel, based in the state of Michoacan, in southwestern Mexico, has a vast

network pumping drugs throughout the United States, specializing in methamphetamine. The arrests took place in 38 cities, from Boston to Seattle and Tampa, Fla., to St. Paul, Minn., in 19 states. Attorney General Eric Holder pledged to keep hitting La Familia and the cartels responsible for a wave of bloodshed in Mexico. He said the U.S. would attack them at all levels, from the leadership to their supply chains reaching far into the United States.

FROM THE WEB In his letter to the editor “University should encourage use of public transportation,” published Thursday, UNM staff member Chuck Reuben argued that, instead of building a parking structure at Lomas and Yale boulevards, the University should build a bus stop. Readers at responded: by ‘xander’ Posted Thursday “Uh, nah, I like having my own transportation. Parking? A tad bothersome, but I manage. A little walking, supplemented with a bike. I get along just fine. Public transportation sucks. Smelly and hot in the summer, cold and smelly in the winter. Punks and drunks all the time. A moving biological experiment. No thanks. I’ll keep my ride.” by ‘Casey’ Posted Thursday “I am a graduate student working full time and I commute to campus about three days a week from across town. I have been using the visitor parking garage because it is the quickest way in and out of the University. People like me have no time to mess with public transportation. We need to be able to get in and out quickly. I also agree with xander about the ‘moving biological experiment.’ LOL.” by ‘Cee’ Posted Thursday “Lest we forget, Parking and Transportation Services is a money generating operation and a $50 bus stop earns them no new revenue, but building a cement behemoth has the potential to bring in tons of dough. Nope, people, I don’t see them acting in the environment’s best interest in this instance (or ever, as long as they are in business for the dough).” by ‘Adelina Artist’ Posted Thursday “Public transportation is a joke. I’ll take it when I see the Mayor, the UNM faculty and other privileged people riding the bus, until then I will drive my car solo. Are you riding the bus every day, Mr. Reuben?” by ‘Michael’ Posted Thursday “Like it or not, UNM is a commuter campus. There are plenty of students that live all over town. Buses take a long time to get you where you need to be.” by ‘Matt’ Posted Thursday “Really? First, there already is a city bus stop at Lomas and Yale. Second, keep in mind that PATS is 100 percent funded by their operations (parking permit sales, ticket fees, structure and meter parking), so not one penny of your tuition dollars pay for shuttle drivers, the structures, paving, etc. Also, they’ve been highly involved in providing alternative transportation options (including free bus permits for students, staff, and faculty) that take away money from their bottom line. They want people to use the public bus system to get to campus. Sure, they’re an easy target to criticize (and they certainly aren’t perfect either), but I think they do a great job all things considered. Finally, I ride the bus to and from UNM every single day (I didn’t even buy a parking permit at all this year) because I have found the city bus to be more convenient, just as safe, and overall less stressful than driving. My transportation costs to work are lower (aka non-existent) and my car stays safe in my driveway during the day. I highly recommend giving it a shot for a whole week. Hopefully you’ll find that the bus is not as bad as you think (and you’ll see that public transportation in Albuquerque is not a joke).” Join the discussion at

LETTER Fox News needs to state facts, not biased opinions Editor, I am pleased to see that over 50 percent of the people who have voted so far in this week’s online poll recognize Fox News as nothing more than a mouthpiece for conservativebased propaganda. Also, about 25 percent more people at least felt that the arguments presented by Fox News were rather one-sided. That makes over 75 percent of our current pollees who can see right through them. However, I am still concerned about the other 25 percent who believe Fox News is a legitimate news source. I will tell you now: Fox News is a joke. I knew this when, during this last election, Bill O’Reilly was trying to shame a magazine editor for being unfair because there was some eight front covers with Barack Obama, Michelle Obama or Joe Biden on them, and only five with John McCain or Sarah Palin. I knew this when, on practically every show, none of their

out certain details and completely ignoring other facts, it’s not fair anymore, and then when you only present one side to the issues, it isn’t even balanced. Thus, when Fox News claims to have “fair and balanced news coverage,” you should instantly realize that it’s a load of crap and false advertisement. If Fox News were to get their claws on this opinion column, they would most likely lambaste it, calling me a far-left lunatic with no justification for my accusations, and try to drag the Daily Lobo down with it. But in reality, it doesn’t really matter if I am “conservative” or “liberal.” The reason I formulate these opinions is because I’m not an idiot and can see right through them. For you Fox News enthusiasts, I recommend you check out The Young Turks. I didn’t get my opinions from them, but I certainly agree. I am certain you would find some good reasons to be suspicious of Fox News after seeing a few of their videos. Chris Cuellar UNM student


U.S. uses runoff strategy in Afghan election by Anne Gearan

The Associated Press President Barack Obama’s relief at the agreement that could quiet the political crisis over Afghanistan’s spoiled election masks his predicament as he weighs an expansion of the unpopular Afghanistan war. The administration says its ambitious plans for Afghanistan rely on a “credible partner” in Kabul. But there is no guarantee that the hastily arranged voting will confer the legitimacy the fraudulent Aug. 20 election lacked. No matter who wins the November election runoff that Afghanistan President Hamid Karzai agreed to during pressured consultations with American leaders, the United States

hosts could grasp the concept that it just might be possible to be friends with people without necessarily condoning certain actions they have done in the past or conforming to every last one of their ideologies. I knew this when, on practically every “O’Reilly Factor” show, they’d bring in Dick Morris, the man who wrote a book called something like “How Barack Obama is going to destroy our country, our future, our great American way, kill our children and share their souls with the demonic socialist leaders of Europe atop our ruined cities.” On the show, he’d always be explaining what Barack Obama was doing wrong — which was just about everything — and the “conservative” way to do it right. Folks, there’s something simple you have to understand here. It’s good, unbiased journalism when you present nothing but the facts. This is what we could call “news.” When you start including opinions, it is no longer news, and I don’t believe it matters if you present one side of opinions and then present another side to be fair. Furthermore, when you start spinning the facts, leaving



is wedded to a shaky government in which corruption has become second nature. Obama pointed to the Nov. 7 runoff as “a path forward in order to complete this election process.” He said nothing about his deliberations over what could be a huge surge of U.S. armed forces in Afghanistan, a calculation badly thrown off by the botched August voting. For the U.S., a runoff emerged as perhaps the least bad option to restore momentum and the important perception that Afghans themselves are invested in their government and its success. Karzai’s chief political rival, Abdullah Abdullah, agreed Wednesday to participate in the runoff. “You have to learn from mistakes, and

everybody needs to do that here,” said Sen. John Kerry, D-Mass., who stood with Karzai for an awkward announcement of the runoff plan. Another election risks the same fraud that derailed the Aug. 20 vote, and the same risk of inciting violence and increasing ethnic divisions. If there are any more delays, the vote could also be hampered by winter snows that block off much of the north of the country starting mid-November. White House press secretary Robert Gibbs said Obama has not decided whether to move ahead with a revamped strategy, and the prospect of more troops, before results of the runoff are known. Gibbs told reporters he still expects that decision within weeks. The Taliban will surely try to disrupt the voting again, and turnout is expected to be low in areas where voters were intimidated. “Another election where there’s no credible government to operate with continues to undermine our reason for being there,” said Richard “Ozzie” Nelson, a former White House counterterrorism expert now at the Center for Strategic and International Studies. “It would push us further down the slippery slope of what to do next.” Anne Gearan has covered U.S. national security issues for The Associated Press since 2004.

Fame found as a Lobo a shock for new player by Isaac Avilucea Daily Lobo

Rarely, if ever, does someone come to Albuquerque to get famous. Enter the curious case of Phillip McDonald, the UNM men’s basketball team’s second-year swingman. Upon his arrival, there were practically people lounging on the tarmac, waiting for the ballyhooed four-star prospect to plant his Nikes on New Mexico soil. Needless to say, McDonald became an overnight celebrity — so much so that he should’ve just started carrying a Sharpie in his sock. Everybody wanted his John Hancock. After home games, children and parents alike waited for McDonald to dart up toward the tunnel in The Pit, pens and Lobo memorabilia in hand. The usually introverted player said he was taken aback by the gesture. “It was actually very surprising,” said McDonald, who graciously obliged to fans’ signature requests. “In Houston I didn’t get asked for too many autographs. As soon as I flew up here to Albuquerque, I got asked for autographs as soon as I got off the plane. This is a college town. These kids really look up to you

Vanessa Sanchez/ Daily Lobo Phillip McDonald slashes through the lane in this file photo. McDonald will have to have to be more assertive with the basketball this season in order to temper UNM losing three seniors compared to when I was in Houston. When I was in Houston, you have professional teams, so you’re just a little guy.” Truth be told, there was nothing diminutive about McDonald or his play — not his stature, nor his firstyear contributions. As a freshman, McDonald played a rather large role, averaging 7.3 points per game

Hoping for first win at Homecoming by Ryan Tomari Daily Lobo

UNM interim head coach George Barlow said he is going to do everything in his power to help the UNM football team get the first win of the season against UNLV. And that could include gambling early. “I can’t say I won’t go for it on fourth down,� he said. “Let’s just say this: I will definitely be out there trying to play to win if it comes to a situation to do that. If (defensive coordinator) Doug (Mallory) and coach (offensive coordinator Darrell) Dickey feel good about it, then we are going to go with it.� The Lobos need to get it done this weekend, because it might be the last chance for a victory this season. Including Saturday’s game against UNLV, UNM has six games left.

UNM (0-6) is winless for the first time since the 1987 season and riding a 10-game losing streak dating back to last season. The Lobos have lost six consecutive Mountain West Conference games since 2008, too. Enter the Rebels — currently 2-5 and a team that has given up more than 30 points in six of its seven games. But the Lobos aren’t fooled by the Rebels’ record, Barlow said. “On paper it looks like a better opportunity, a better chance to win,� he said. “They are a pretty good team when they put it all together. I am sure they are going to come and be ready to play.� UNLV has some playmakers, specifically wide receiver Ryan Wolfe, who has hauled in 50 receptions for 539 yards and a touchdown this season. Wolfe, a preseason All-American candidate, is a tremendous route runner and has great hands catching the ball in traffic. To stop Wolfe and the rest of the Rebels, cornerback Anthony Hooks said the Lobos will have to take the field at full speed. “He is a big and really physical receiver,� Hooks said. “We are just going to have to come out there with our A-game and see what we do against him. We just got to be on top of our stuff.� Barlow said the bye week helped the Lobos get back to

We also tried to see what we are doing well, especially with young kids who haven’t played a whole lot (this season).� Barlow’s had double duties this week, coaching the defensive back and the team as a whole because of head coach Mike Locksley’s 10day suspension. But even with the added pressure, cornerback Nathan Enriquez said Barlow is committed to commanding the secondary’s attention. “We see what we have to do this week with coach Barlow in charge,� he said. “He is doing a great job keeping us focused and not thinking about other things outside of what we have to do on the field and at practice.�

But if McDonald, as he insinuated, was holding back some of his unearthed potential, then that tells you something about how capable he is. Last season, he scored double-digits 11 times, and he also became the first Lobo since Mark Walters did it in 2003 to record a double-double. There were times, however, when McDonald balked at being assertive with the basketball and deferred to the seniors instead.
