UNM ‘It’s chalk. It’s something mulls that people should major in understand policies on.’ Japanese by Megan Underwood firstname.lastname@example.org
Students studying Japanese at UNM may soon have the opportunity to major, rather than just minor, in the language. Foreign Languages and Literatures Chair Walter Putnam said the creation of the major hinges on when the department will be able to hire an additional faculty member for the Japanese department. He said student interest and enrollment in Japanese classes has grown steadily over the past decade. Currently, students who are interested in Japanese must declare as an East Asian Studies major and minor in Japanese, which can present problems, particularly when applying for graduate school. “Japanese is an identifiable major,” Putnam said. “People may or may not recognize what an East Asian Studies major is; you have to explain it to people.” Putnam said the UNM Japanese department has only two full-time faculty members who teach courses: Lorna Brau, who specializes in performance arts and culture, and Machiko Bomberger, who teaches mostly language courses. Both Brau and Bomberger teach 15-16 credit hours per semester, which Putnam said doesn’t leave room to teach the additional courses necessary for a major study program. “You can’t really run a major with one tenure-track faculty

Rules on chalking in place, but not always followed by Ardee Napolitano email@example.com
A clear indication of ASUNM election season is the abundance of political advertisements on campus drawn on the sidewalks with chalk, but students can’t chalk on campus wherever they please. Policies mandate where chalking
is allowed on campus, and Student Activities Associate Director Ryan Lindquist said policies are ignored at least once a month. According to UNM’s posting guidelines, which is enforced by Student Services and the Physical Plant, chalking is only allowed on exposed surfaces where it can easily be removed by precipitation or foot traffic. Chalking is prohibited on permanent structures such as statues and on unexposed sidewalks. Chalking is also prohibited
within 15 feet of buildings’ entrances and in Lobo Village. Students are only allowed to use nonpermanent writing materials such as sidewalk chalk. Materials such as liquid chalk, charcoal and paint are prohibited. Lindquist said most of the problems the University has regarding chalking involve students writing on vertical surfaces, such as walls. He said Student Activities tracks down the students responsible to ask them to remove the chalk, but if the center’s at-
tempts are unsuccessful, the Physical Plant cleans up the writings by spraying them with water. “Once in a while, there are always people that struggle with understanding the policy,” he said. “It’s chalk. It’s something that people should understand policies on.” But Lindquist said student organizations have been cooperative when Student Activities calls them out for violating chalking policies.

Parent Association elects interim president by Ardee Napolitano firstname.lastname@example.org
After electing an interim president two weeks ago, the UNM Parent Association is working to keep the organization up and running. At an Oct. 10 meeting, the remaining members of the Parent Association Board of Directors voted Angie Gonzales Carver to be interim president. The association’s administrative officer Bernadette Jaramillo-Peck said Carver will keep the position until the association holds its next election for officers and board members. The election of an interim president followed a mass resignation of board members in August, although the association
Daily Lobo volume 117
began having problems in May, when newly elected president Suzanna Ausborn resigned a few weeks after she was elected. Ausborn was then replaced by David Garrett in June, but he resigned along with a number of board members before the beginning of the fall semester. At the time, members said the reason behind the resignations was that UNM wanted to have a say in the election of the association’s next president. Past members insisted that the association is independent from UNM, and that the University does not have the right to intervene with the election process of their officers. The University tried to hold an emergency meeting on Aug. 17, but
the association denied the request. After denying the University’s request, then-treasurer Francis Page organized a separate meeting on the same day with the remaining members to discuss the possibility of disbanding. Instead, they decided to elect a new Board of Directors that will work closely with the University. But by Aug. 20, all members of the Board of Directors had resigned. In another emergency meeting the University organized Aug. 21, remaining members decided not to disband the organization. But the decision in the meeting was not formal, because too few members of the board attended, so the meeting didn’t have quorum.

Former board members denied the Daily Lobo’s requests for comment. Although the date of the next election has not yet been set, Jaramillo-Peck said the board will vote to elect a treasurer, vice president and president. She said the association will also elect as many as 25 people to serve on the Board of Directors. Jaramillo-Peck said a number of parents have been supportive of the association’s current initiatives. “We’ve had parents express their interest through letters, phone calls and emails,” she said. “There’s progress every day in getting the group in action.” Although only five members were present at the Oct. 10 meeting
to select Carver for the position, Jaramillo-Peck said the association was able to elect an interim president because there was quorum, which means there were a minimum number of members present in the meeting to elect an officer. But Jaramillo-Peck said the association is moving forward and away from the conflict. “That happened, but that’s in the past,” she said. “We’re starting fresh with a brand new slate.” Associate Provost for Curriculum Greg Heileman said the board members’ resignation would not have a significant impact on the future of the association. “What happened a month ago

Cops: texting leads to fight in Lobo Village UNMPD was dispatched to Lobo Village on Oct. 14 in response to a fight in progress. According to the report, UNM students Matthew Martinez, Morgan Redmond and Jonathan Roybal were coming home from a party when Redmond and Roybal began arguing because Redmond was texting Roybal’s ex-girlfriend. When they arrived at Lobo Village, the argument continued and a few seconds later, Redmond grabbed at Roybal’s feet and pulled his shoes off. After Martinez separated them, Redmond went upstairs, picked up Roybal’s television and threw it on the ground, damaging the screen.

On Oct. 13, Gylma Frias returned to her car in A-Lot and discovered that an unknown suspect had broken into her car and damaged the ignition and gear shift handle.

incorrectly placed chalking, Jacome said it notifies the candidate responsible and gives them 24 to 48 hours to remove it. He said that if the candidates refuse to or are unable to do remove the chalk within the given time, the commission will investigate the issue and will impose punishments on the candidates. Although candidates will still be allowed to run for a position, Jacome said punishment can last up to a semester. “They can still assume seats,” he said. “But they can lose their speaking or their voting rights, or they can be not allowed to go to senate meetings at all.” Jacome said the commission draws a 25-feet limit around polling locations ahead of time and retouches the line two days before the election to avoid complaints that the line is unclear. He said this is how they implemented the policy during the recent homecoming season.
Jacome said the commission often extends the limit to a “grace period” of 30 feet. Because of that, he said candidates have not had issues with this chalking boundary. “Last year, we had somebody chalk beyond that 25-feet line,” he said. “We called them that night, and they mopped it, and the next day it’s just fine.” Jacome said candidates occupy spaces on a first-come, first-serve basis, and some candidates have had conflicts with their designated spaces. He said some areas, such as the set of stairs going up to the SUB from Smith Plaza, frequently attract candidates, which causes competition for the space. “We’ve had problems in the past in which candidates will take those stairs, and it will rain,” he said. “But some people take over that space without letting us know first.”
Jacome said candidates who want to take over a washed-up space must consult the Elections Commissions first before taking over the space. If the commission decides that the space is completely washed-off, other candidates are free to write on it. But if it decides that the chalk hasn’t been totally removed, the candidate who previously chalked in the space can retouch his or her chalking and maintain ownership of the space. Lindquist said Student Activities members educate student organizations about chalking guidelines through mandatory workshops. But he said policy enforcement ultimately rests in student leaders’ hands. “We have over 400 students organizations on campus, and obviously, each of those has between five and 500 members,” he said. “So it’s up to the student organization leadership to educate their members.”
“It doesn’t look like we could have that because they’re looking for people to represent the Parent Association first,” he said. To prevent the association’s previous problem from happening again, Heileman said the University hired Jaramillo-Peck as a program coordinator. He said she will bridge the gap between the association and the University. “What we’re trying to do is to get the Parent Association to work more with the University and those other groups on campus,” he said. “If they want to work, we’re
here to work with them. We’re putting resources into this.” Jaramillo-Peck said that despite the resignations, the association’s funding was not affected. She said the association will continue to host major fundraisers, such as its annual golf tournament, and will continue to sell holiday ornaments to fund its scholarship programs. “Of course, with the hiccup last month, it has had an impact, however we are going for the golf tournament and a tailgate is
happening on Saturday,” she said. “(The mass resignation) did not affect the funding. There’s still an endowment for scholarships the people who had agreed to donate just continue.” Jaramillo-Peck said she is optimistic the association will not experience a mass resignation again in the future, and that the re-formed association will be helpful to the University community. “The mission of the Parent Association is to promote student success,” she said. “And I don’t think that some conflict should tarnish the reputation of the association.”
On Oct. 5, a UNM officer patrolling campus discovered that the wall on the south side of Anderson School of Management had been tagged. According to the report, the unknown suspect tagged in red “End Corporate Colonialism” and “Einsteins cut your s*** out” with an arrow pointing to a construction site across the Roma Mall, a site soon to be the home of an Einstein’s Bagels location. The officer did not find any more graffiti in the area, and reported that the graffiti did not appear to be done with spray paint. No further information was available at the time of the report. ~compiled by Alexandra Swanberg

“When we ask student organizations to clean up mistakes, they typically do that,” he said. On the other hand, Lindquist said chalking for campus campaigns, such as those for homecoming and for ASUNM elections, are monitored by ASUNM’s Election Commission. ASUNM Elections Commission Executive Director Alberto Jacome said the same rules apply to candidates for campus elections. But candidates are prohibited from chalking within 25 feet of polling locations such as Zimmerman Library, Dane Smith Hall and the SUB. “We’re very protective of our polling locations,” he said. “We don’t want people to be either deceiving or kind of influencing people’s votes.” If the Elections Commissions spots an

was that a lot of people resigned,” he said. “That’s just what happened. They’re being replaced. It didn’t crumble in the sense that it’s already not working.” Heileman said the association decided to hire an interim president to find people who would want to serve on the executive board. He said about 10 people have already inquired about becoming involved in the association. He said that although an election is sure to happen within the board in the future, it will not take place soon.

Texas Attorney General Greg Abbott announced Wednesday that he is intervening in a lawsuit that cheerleaders filed against the school district. The district told the cheerleaders to stop using Bible verses at football games after the Freedom From Religion Foundation complained.
by Chris Tomlinson The Associated Press
AUSTIN, Texas — A judge ruled Thursday that cheerleaders at an East Texas high school can display banners emblazoned with Bible verses at football games, saying the school district’s ban on the practice appears to violate the students’ free speech rights. District Judge Steve Thomas granted an injunction requested by the Kountze High School cheerleaders allowing them to continue displaying religious-themed banners pending the outcome of a lawsuit, which is set to go to trial next June 24, Texas Attorney General Greg Abbott said. Thomas previously granted a temporary restraining order allowing the practice to continue. School officials barred the cheerleaders from displaying banners with religious messages such as, “If God is for us, who can be against us,” after the Freedom From Religion Foundation complained. The advocacy group says the messages violate the First Amendment clause barring the government — or a publicly funded school district, in this case — from establishing or endorsing a religion. Gov. Rick Perry, who appointed Thomas, a fellow Republican, to the district court to fill a vacancy, issued a statement welcoming the ruling. “Today’s ruling is a victory for all who cherish our inalienable right to freedom of speech and
religious expression,” Perry said. “I am proud of the cheerleaders at Kountze ISD for standing firm in the knowledge of these endowed rights and their willingness to be an example in defending those rights, which a secular group has needlessly tried to take away.” Abbott, who filed court papers seeking to intervene in the lawsuit on behalf of the cheerleaders, also issued a statement commending the ruling. “Students’ ability to express their religious views adds to the diversity of thought that has made this country so strong,” Abbott said. Abbott argued that the Texas Education Code also states that schools must respect the rights of students to express their religious beliefs. “It is the individual speech of the cheerleaders and not in fact the government speaking,” David Starnes, the cheerleaders’ attorney said, according to KDFM television. “It is not just one girl or one person in the group that comes up with the quote, but it’s on a rotating basis that each girl gets to pick the quote. That is their individual voices that are being portrayed on the banner.” Thomas Brandt, the attorney representing the school district, said the superintendent had acted to comply within existing legal rulings. The Anti-Defamation League issued a statement in which it called the judge’s decision misguided.

Minimum wage issue doesn’t just affect kids by Will Thomson
Daily Lobo columnist firstname.lastname@example.org
I have written a number of times about the minimum wage increase that is going to be on the ballot in November. This is because I feel this is a very important issue that will affect not only many UNM students, but also many struggling individuals and families in Albuquerque. Again, this increase would raise the minimum wage from $7.50 an hour to $8.50, make tipped minimum wage at least 45 percent of regular minimum wage, and, most importantly, this would index the minimum wage with the rising cost of living so Albuquerque will never be stuck in a situation in which the cost of living is much higher than the minimum wage. A few weeks ago I discussed this increase and said it would help families and individuals who are struggling and living in poverty. One response appeared in a Daily Lobo column the following week, mockingly suggesting that struggling families would not be affected by this increase because most minimum wage workers are not adults working to support families. However, a recent report put out by New Mexico’s Voices for Children tells a very different story. The report says that this increase would, directly and indirectly, affect 40,000 Albuquerque workers, or 14.3 percent of the total Albuquerque workforce. In addition, it dispels the notion that those who would benefit from the minimum wage are primarily younger members of the workforce who work part time and have other support at home. It shows that 84 percent of the workers who would be affected work more than part time, and most are adults who have a part in supporting a family. This increase would also greatly benefit women and Hispanics, because 53 percent and 55 percent, respectively, of those workers who would be affected by the increase are women or Hispanic. Thus, this increase would not only help the stereotypical teenager flipping hamburgers — often portrayed as the only worker making minimum wage — but would benefit hard-working adults who work more than part time. The report also shows that this increase, despite what some have said, would also help stimulate the economy. This is because when the minimum wage stays the same, while prices go up due to inflation, the buying power of a dollar goes down. Indeed, the report examines how the $7.50 minimum wage, if not adjusted with inflation, will only have the buying power of $6 by 2020. So if the minimum wage increases and is indexed with prices, then consumers and workers will have more buying power and will spend more money. Specifically, minimum wage earners would have $712 more per year in their pockets. The report estimates that this would inject $18 million into the local economy. Indeed, a number of local business owners including Travis Parkins, co-founder of Guerrilla Graphix; David Edwards, who co-founded the New Mexico Tea Co.; and Nancy Rogers, co-founder of the Daily Grind, have all pledged support for increasing the minimum wage because they know it will benefit the economy as well as workers. If you would like to know more about the impacts the minimum wage increase would have on Albuquerque, you can attend a panel discussion on the issue today at 7 p.m. in the SUB Ballroom A. Also, if you would like to see the economic report discussed above, you can go to NMVoices.org. However, whether or not you feel that the minimum wage increase would be good for Albuquerque, I would urge everyone to make their voice heard and get out and vote, and vote early.
The road to recession is paved with good intent Editor’s note: This letter is in response to the column “Growth of prison labor harms small businesses,” published in Thursday’s Daily Lobo. The column talks about the benefits of increasing the minimum wage and elaborates on the harms of using low-paid prison labor instead of paying other workers the minimum wage or higher for the same work. Editor, In Will Thomson’s recent column, he claims that the minimum wage increase proposal that will be on the ballot in November should be the last thing small businesses have to worry about. He’s missing the bigger picture. It isn’t only the small business owner who will have to figure out how to accommodate the rising labor cost. It is the minimum wage earners and marginal workers who will be negatively impacted directly by a minimum wage increase. Ironically, it’s those individuals who the proposal is intended to help. But like so many policies pursued by crusading bureaucrats, the intent never matches up to reality. In a previous article by the same author, and like many other minimum wage advocates, he cites Santa Fe as a prime example of a low-unemployment city with a very high minimum wage. It is true that Santa Fe
Graffiti can’t possibly make it any more of an eyesore Editor’s note: This letter is in response to “Graffiti a problem at the center of the universe,” published in Monday’s Daily Lobo. The article discusses the frequency and cost of graffiti cleanup on the UNM public art piece by Bruce Nauman called “The Center of the Universe.” Editor, As a recent junior transfer, I had no idea until reading Monday’s paper that the supersized avian toilet located between Ortega and Mitch-
Letters has one of the highest minimum wage mandates in the country and one of the lowest total unemployment rates in the state, at around 5 percent. Does one really think there is a correlation between high minimum wage and low unemployment? Any sensible person would find this curious and require a closer look for unseen variables. As it turns out, it is not the entire story. Who does a high minimum wage affect? It isn’t everybody, because many are paid above the minimum wage. It affects those who are in the margin, the low-skilled worker entering the job market or working an additional lowskilled job for extra income. This demographic is primarily the young newcomers to the labor market. With this in mind, the unemployment rates tell a different tale. The national unemployment rate for 1624-year-olds is 16.5 percent. Albuquerque does relatively well in this category, with an unemployment rate of 8.8 percent and a minimum wage of $7.50. Santa Fe, with a minimum wage of $10.29, has a staggering unemployment rate for 16-24-year-olds of 21.9 percent. If the minimum wage is raised, it is unlikely Albuquerque will be able to maintain an unemployment rate of 8.8 percent among 16-24-year-olds. Raise the minimum wage to $20 or $30 and you will see in plain sight what actually occurs at the marginal level with lower minimum wage increases. It’s easy to look at an individual’s wage of $10.29 and think “Wow, how can someone live off of only $21,000 a year?”
However, you don’t help the poor by removing the best choice they have. Then all they are left with is the next bad predicament, which is no job at all, and the closest rung on their economic ladder is just out of reach due to someone’s “good intentions.” A new study was released by the Employment Policies Institute, which was blogged about by the Rio Grande Foundation’s ErrorsofEnchantment.com. In this study, University of Kentucky economist Aaron Yelowitz examined the impact of minimum wage mandates. The study found that “each additional $1 in wage and benefit mandates reduces young adults’ labor force participation by roughly two percentage points, increases unemployment by 4.5 percentage points and causes a 26-hour reduction in annual hours worked.” Do not let good intent lead Albuquerque into an economic quagmire. Vote “no” for the minimum wage increase. I find it interesting that Mr. Thomson is so concerned by how “prison labor undercuts small employers and also takes away jobs at a time when unemployment rates are high and finding a job is difficult,” but completely advocates an increase in minimum wage that does this very thing. He ignores economic reality in one instance but seemingly wants to call upon the same concept when it suits him. One can pick and choose when to ignore reality, but one can never ignore the consequences of it.
ell halls is considered “art.” While I suppose conartistry is technically a variety of art, only two words could possibly have traversed the anemic grey matter of the intellectual microbe who conceived that depressing Stalinist monolith at the moment he found his muse: “f*** it.” It isn’t even sufficient to shelter a bum from the elements. Its only possible artistic purpose is to serve between bong-hits as an experimental canvas for the sharpie pens of degenerate, overindulged adolescents tripping over their pseudo-urban baby clothes. Only an overeducated art-world sycophant with a burning need to dangle his or her nauseating credentials could possibly defend the cost of maintaining such narcissistic mental flatulence (“The Center of the Universe?” Gag me.). The Iraq War was a better use of taxpayer
money. At least that debacle netted a few folks the G.I. Bill, so they don’t have to take out a loan to help pay the exorbitant upkeep on a node of repressed, marijuana-addled psycho-sexual tension that only serves to add 90 seconds of walking time between classes.

Paraplegic man survives Trick or Trot Race three days in NM desert 2.5Road mile run around campus and food drive by Susan Montoya Bryan The Associated Press
ALBUQUERQUE — A paraplegic man who says he was stranded in the New Mexico desert without his wheelchair dragged himself about four miles down a dirt road over three days before a motorist stopped to help him. Tattered and dirty, Ricky Gilmore’s blue jeans tell part of the story. His body tells the rest — the skin on his left leg and buttocks is shredded, his wrist is sprained and his kidneys are in bad shape from going without food and water. “Ah man, I’m just a big mess. I ache and I’m just in the first stages of healing,” he told The Associated Press on Tuesday from his hospital bed at the Northern Navajo Medical Center in Shiprock, N.M. Gilmore, 49, is being treated for acute kidney failure from dehydration, a sprained wrist and a blood infection. He spent two days in intensive care and it could be at least another week before he can go home. The Farmington Daily Times first reported Gilmore’s story. He was found along a seldom traveled road on the Navajo Nation about 10 miles from his home in Newcomb, which is on the eastern side of the reservation. Gilmore said he was dropped in the desert by a couple in a white truck who he met while he was
hitchhiking. He had invited them to his home for steaks and they later went for what Gilmore thought was going to be a joyride. When he declined to share his alcohol with them, Gilmore said the man grabbed him by his feet and threw him out of the truck while parked along the desolate road.
Tattered and dirty, Ricky Gilmore’s blue jeans tell part of the story. His body tells the rest — the skin on his left leg and buttocks is shredded... It was early evening and Gilmore had nothing — no wheelchair, no food, no water, no coat — to help him endure the flat desert scrubland. “It was dark and I was shivering and the wind was blowing so I just crawled to a bush and dug in right there. It was cold that night,” he said. With the sunrise, survival mode kicked in. “I started dragging myself. I did the same thing all day and I only got about two miles,” he said.
Two people passed by. Gilmore tried flagging them down but they only honked and kept going. After spending a second night at the side of the road, Gilmore said he woke up sore and thirsty and didn’t want to move. “I could have easily gave up and said forget it, but I said I’m not going to freeze out here and I just kept on going,” said Gilmore, who lives by himself and lost the use of his legs in a car crash years ago. On the third afternoon, a man in a blue pickup truck stopped and called for help. Gilmore said doctors told him his body temperature was 94 when he was found. “I don’t think I would have made it another night,” he said. The Daily Times reported that Gilmore filed a report with the Shiprock Police Department. There were no officials at the department after hours Tuesday who could confirm details of the report. Gilmore said he’s bandaged up “big time” and morphine is helping with the pain. Still, he had a nightmare Monday night in which he found himself sitting at the edge of a freeway waving his hands at the passing traffic, but no one looked at him. His plan is simple for when he gets released from the hospital: “Go home and pray, take inventory and just get a good night sleep in my own bed and heal.”

and one lecturer,” he said. “But we started thinking that with a third person, we could make a pretty good push for a major.” UNM student Katherine Barton, whose major is East Asian Studies, said a Japanese major would be helpful not only in her academics, but in her career aspirations as well. She said she wants to be an international flight attendant. “Right now Japanese is my life,” she said. “Everything I think about, everything I read about is basically about Japanese culture and the language.” Barton said one of the issues students face is becoming proficient in the language. Because there are so few teachers, she said students often can’t get the help they need to understand the language. Barton said there are few outside resources for students learning Japanese, which often causes people to give up on the language. She said CAPS has only one tutor for Japanese classes and that the lack of available courses contributes to the difficulty of learning the language. “We can only meet three times a week, or twice for upper level courses,” she said. “And because
of that, it’s hard to be immersed in the language.” Barton said majoring in East Asian Studies has hindered her focus on Japanese because many required courses are very broad and don’t relate to Japan. She said religion courses in particular have been frustrating. “Most religion courses hardly talk about the area of Asia I’m interested in,” she said. “We’re going to study Buddhism, but we’re hardly going to talk about Japanese Zen Buddhism.” Putnam said the department is in the process of getting approval from University administration to make the new hire. He said the search for new a faculty member could start as soon as December. Putnam said the department aims to hire someone whose area of expertise is Japanese literature. He said the course will be taught in English but that, eventually, the department would like to offer literature courses taught in Japanese to help counter the current lack of immersion. “We want somebody who can complement what we already have,” he said. “Then we could have courses that (professors) don’t have time to teach now.”

“Public schools are for children of all faiths or no faith, and these banners were clearly being displayed in the context of schoolsponsored activities,” the group said. “Faith is a profoundly personal decision, so students should not be subjected to an exclusionary schoolsponsored religious message on campus or be forced to choose between attending quintessential school events — football games — or being subjected to an unwanted religious message.” The Freedom From Religion Foundation, which is dedicated to the
separation of church and state, said it is ready to provide legal assistance to anyone living in the school district who wants to join the lawsuit to ban religious banners at school events. “Since the state’s top law enforcer, Attorney General Greg Abbott, and its highest executive officer, Gov. Rick Perry, have openly expressed contempt for atheists and the Establishment Clause, this leads to a climate of intolerance,” Dan Barker, the group’s copresident, said. “It takes courage to face down the full apparatus of state government.”

Stoner is a rock for Lobo D-line by Thomas Romero-Salas email@example.com @ThomasRomeroS
Natalia Jacquez / Daily Lobo Redshirt senior linebacker Joe Stoner stretches at practice on Tuesday. Stoner has developed into a vocal leader for the UNM football team.
Joe Stoner knows how to command an audience. The UNM redshirt senior linebacker has developed into a leader on the Lobo defensive unit. Not only is his play inspiring to his teammates, according to head coach Bob Davie, but he has developed into an outspoken field general. “Joe is a man,” Davie said. “He’s a tough guy, he really cares, and when he speaks everybody listens. I’ve been very impressed with him. Joe has been an unbelievable source of consistency for us and I really wish he had a couple more years — he’s been a tremendous leader.” Stoner functions as another coach on the field, as he helps the Lobo defense lineup on almost every defensive snap. Stoner said he wants to become a coach once his playing days are done. “That’s been one of my biggest dreams — if I’m not fortunate enough to play at the next level, I want to help someone else reach their goal,”
he said. “Coaching has always been something that I wanted to go into. It’s more football, and I’ve had coaches that helped me get to where I am and I just want to give back.” Stoner has seen his fair share of defensive schemes, which he said has helped him to grasp defensive coordinator Jeff Mills’ new 3-4 scheme. “I’ve been through four different defenses, if you want to count (former head coach Rocky) Long’s when I got here,” Stoner said. “It helps you be a smarter player and pick up things quickly. You just reiterate what the coach tells you and you learn to tweak it to the best of your abilities.” The Lobos stand 4-4 on the year and are two wins away from being bowl eligible for the first time since 2007, when they played Nevada in the New Mexico Bowl. Stoner said he expects the team to go to a bowl game this season. “It’d mean everything; coming in as a freshman, UNM had been to seven straight bowls,” he said. “My freshman year I was hyped thinking we were going to go to another bowl

WIN Adria Malcolm / @adriamalcolm / Daily Lobo Redshirt sophomore Alex Kirk goes for a layup against junior Cameron Bairstow during Lobo Howl at The Pit on Oct. 12. Both men will be a critical part of the men’s basketball team’s success this season.
by J.R. Oppenheim
firstname.lastname@example.org @JROppenheim If the UNM men’s basketball team sticks with its plans to run fourguard lineups, backcourt play will be on display early and often throughout the season. But head coach Steve Alford said that doesn’t mean post play will be put on the backburner. Even with four guards on the floor, UNM will run its offense from the inside out. That makes big men Alex Kirk and Cameron Bairstow key components in the UNM system in 2012-13. Both will have the responsibility to control the paint offensively and defensively. “We say we could be doing some four-guards, we could be playing some two-bigs,” Alford said. “Those two bigs, they’re a handful inside. They’re going to be guys who we can throw the ball into the post.” Kirk and Bairstow have the task of replacing the strong rebounding efforts of Drew Gordon and the post presence of A.J. Hardeman, both of whom graduated after last year’s MWC title run. While the guards are expected to contribute on the boards, Kirk and Bairstow will be major factors in the rebounding category. Kirk, a redshirt sophomore center
with a 7-foot-2 wingspan, will see his first on-court action since a herniated disc surgery sidelined him last year. As a result, the Los Alamos native was redshirted last season. During his freshman year in 2010-11, Kirk was the Mountain West’s No. 2 rebounding freshman with 3.7 per game. His 126 boards in 2010-11 were the seventh-most by a Lobo freshman. Kirk said he is looking forward to the upcoming season. Post-surgery rehabilitation was a long process, he said, but he feels he’s gotten stronger. Missing action wasn’t fun, either. “I mean, it’s college basketball — you don’t want to wait out a second,” he said. “It’s hard just to sit there and watch. There were good days; sometimes your body can only take so much. It felt good, but it’s not up to you. It’s what your body can take.” Working with Bairstow helped as well, Kirk said. Kirk called Bairstow “probably the strongest kid in the league.” Bairstow, a junior power forward, is the fourt Australian men’s hoops player at UNM, hailing from Brisbane. Other Australians to play at UNM are Luc Longley in 1987-91, Ryan Kersten in 2005-07 and Hugh Greenwood, who is on the current roster. Bairstow averaged 3.6 points and

With their combined seven conference championships in the last four seasons, the UNM menâ€™s
and womenâ€™s cross county teams are turning heads on the national stage. On Friday, the squads will look to continue their run of success in the Mountain West Conference Championships in Las Vegas, Nev. Despite their as-yet unassuming season, both the menâ€™s and womenâ€™s squads are starting to make waves in the national polls. UNM is the only mid-major school to have both teams in the top 20. According to the U.S. Track and Field and Cross Country Coaches Association, the men are ranked No. 12 nationally and No. 3 in the region. The women are No. 17 nationally and No. 2 in the region. Senior Josephine Moultrie said the lack of attention has helped New Mexico focus. â€œIt actually provides more motivation for us,â€? she said. â€œWe think weâ€™re running better this year, so itâ€™s giving us more confidence.â€? But before focusing on the NCAA Regional Championships on Nov. 9 and the NCAA National Championships on Nov. 17, UNM must train its sights on a 2012 Mountain West title, head coach Joe Franklin said. â€œThatâ€™s the goal of every university: to win a conference championship in every sport,â€? Franklin said. â€œThis is the first step of the championship season. But the season isnâ€™t over after conference play â€” you still have to play regionals and nationals. The goal is to finish and give it our all.â€? The New Mexico women have won four straight conference titles
Ăż Ä€ Ăž Ăž Ć‹ Ć‹ Ć‹ Ć‹ Ä? Ć‹ Äƒ Ăž Äƒ ÄŠ Ä‡ Ä€ Äƒ ÄŠ Äƒ Äƒ Ä… Äƒ
dating back to 2008. Meanwhile, the men have won three consecutive championships. Moultrie will arrive in Las Vegas as a two-time winner of the Mountain West Womenâ€™s Cross Country Athlete of the Week. She also has the fastest 6-kilometer in the conference, with a time of 19:56. Moultrie said the fact that she is one of the best cross country runners in the conference, and maybe nation, is still settling in. â€œIâ€™m a little shocked, to be honest,â€? she said. â€œI donâ€™t think Iâ€™ve run that much faster since training, so itâ€™s all coming as a surprise.â€? On the menâ€™s side, junior Sean Stam will be one of four consistent runners entering conference championships, including fellow juniors Adam Bitchell, Luke Caldwell and Pat Zacharias. Stam, a former walk-on from Rio Rancho, was last weekâ€™s co-Mountain West Menâ€™s Cross Country Athlete of the Week and represented UNM by recording the fastest 8-kilometer time in the 2012 Mountain West with a time of 23.59. â€œIt was a lot of hard work,â€? Stam said. â€œI knew I could run with all these guys, but I got a lot of work in and had to develop patience. But overall, Iâ€™m very excited about it.â€? Stam said both teams have what it takes to become a national threat. â€œWe might not have the topend talent in previous years, but we have depth that we havenâ€™t had before,â€? he said. â€œThatâ€™s what you need to have to be a good cross country team.â€?

dence in what we can do. The experience we had last year, that obviously helps a lot toward that confidence.â€? Kirk said going to a four-guard set wonâ€™t be anything new. Itâ€™s something he said he experienced in his first year as a Lobo, and added that the team has been working with those sets in the offseason. â€œWe have to rebound; we have to defend the post,â€? Kirk said, adding he and Bairstow have a lot to prove this season. â€œThatâ€™s important, but we have to work hard and do what coach
says. I think weâ€™ll be all right.â€? The two big men have the chance to prove themselves beginning Nov. 12, when UNM hosts Davidson during ESPNâ€™s 24-hour Tip-Off Marathon. The midnight game is a good opportunity for the Lobos to display on a national stage the kind of team they bring to the court. â€œItâ€™s a lot of fun playing good teams,â€? Bairstow said. â€œWhile the record is important, you play the game to play against good competition.â€?

Cheer pushes for sport status by Lindsey Tanner The Associated Press
CHICAGO — Cheerleading isn’t just jumping and waving pompoms — it has become athletic and potentially dangerous as a sport, and should be designated one to improve safety, the nation’s leading group of pediatricians says. The number of cheerleaders injured each year has climbed dramatically in the last two decades. Common stunts that pose risks include tossing and flipping cheerleaders in the air and creating human pyramids that reach 15 feet in height or more. In a new policy statement released online Monday in the journal Pediatrics, the American Academy of Pediatrics says school sports associations should designate cheerleading as a sport, and make it subject to safety rules and better supervision. That would include on-site athletic trainers, limits on practice time and better-qualified coaches, the academy says. Just like other athletes, cheerleaders should be required to do conditioning exercises and undergo physical exams before joining the squad, the new policy says. “Not everyone is fully aware of how cheerleading has evolved over the last couple of decades,” said Dr. Cynthia LaBella, a sports medicine specialist at Lurie Children’s Hospital in Chicago and an author of the new policy. “It used to be just standing on the sidelines and doing cheers and maybe a few jumps.” But she said modern cheerleading often results in injuries that include severe sprains, broken arms and legs, neck injuries and concussions. Last year there were almost 37,000 emergency room visits for cheerleading injuries among girls aged 6 to 22, according to data from the Consumer Product Safety Commission. That’s more than four times higher than in 1980, when cheerleading was tamer. While there are still traditional cheerleading squads that support schools’ athletic teams, some schools and private clubs have separate cheerleading teams that compete against other teams. Kali Wald of Elburn, Ill., suffered a serious concussion last year during an acrobatic routine with her high school’s competitive team: teammates tossed her in the air but she landed wrong twice, first on her upper back and neck, then on her head. She blacked out for several minutes. Her father, Dave Wald, said her coaches didn’t realize she was seriously injured and never called an ambulance. She still has short-term memory loss and can’t attend school full-time because of dizziness, headaches and

Kali, 18, said she believes that cheerleading should be considered a sport and made safer. Her father agreed and said there needs to be better awareness about the rigors of cheerleading and the potential risks. Injuries have increased as cheerleading has become more popular. Data suggest there are more than 3 million cheerleaders nationwide aged 6 and older, mostly girls. That includes about 400,000 in high school, according to data cited in the new policy. While the overall injury rate in high school cheerleading is lower than in other girls’ sports, including gymnastics, soccer and field hockey, the rate of catastrophic injuries like skull fractures and paralyzing spine injuries is higher, the academy noted. Kasey Bronstein, 14, and her sister Kori, 17, of Mahwah, N.J., both tore knee tendons while cheerleading for a private competitive team run by their parents. They twisted their knees doing acrobatic moves while standing on the raised-up hands of their teammates. They had knee surgery last November, followed by extensive physical therapy, and have since returned to cheerleading. Both said it should be considered a sport, but they also consider it relatively safe. “They’re kind of making it too safe, taking out skills that are very exciting to do,” Kori said. Such skills include a double flip stunt no longer allowed on her team. Some schools and state high school sports associations already consider cheerleading a sport and require the kind of safety oversight that the academy is recommending. But many do not, said Jim Lord, executive director of the American Association of Cheerleading Coaches & Administrators. Some don’t consider it a sport because not all cheerleading squads are involved in their own competitions, he said.

game. To get to one this year would put icing on the cake for me.” Stoner, a Midwest City, Okla. native, said it took a while to become comfortable in the Land of Enchantment because he had never been away from his mother, brother or sister for an extended period of time. In mid-September of his freshman year, he said he was about to call it quits and go home, but after speaking with his mother he decided to stay. “I talked to my mom and cried it
out,” he said. “She was like, ‘You got to stay, this is what you wanted to do. I don’t want you to come home and get distracted.’” The fifth-year senior said he’s proud of the way the program has turned around in his final year as a Lobo. “I wish I had at least one more year,” he said. “It went by too fast, it was like I blinked and it’s my last year. I’m getting to go on and getting ready for the real world.”
Lord said the academy’s policy mirrors many of his group’s safety recommendations for high schools and colleges. That includes limiting the height of human pyramids in high school cheerleading to just two people. The academy also says routines that include pyramids, tumbling or tosses should not be performed on hard surfaces. Lisa Kluchurosky, a sports medicine specialist who works with the academy and the National Athletic Trainers Association, said the new policy will help erase misconceptions that cheerleading is not very athletic. “The statistics are compelling and you can’t turn your head from that,” she said.

Greek soccer team bags brothel sponsorship by Derek Gatopoulos The Associated Press
LARISSA, Greece — The world’s oldest profession is giving a whole new meaning to love of the game. Players on a cash-strapped Greek soccer team now wear pink practice jerseys with the logos “Villa Erotica” and “Soula’s House of History,” two bordellos it recruited as sponsors after drastic government spending cuts left the country’s sports clubs facing ruin. Other teams have also turned to unconventional financing. One has a deal with a local funeral home and others have wooed kebab shops, a jam factory and producers of Greece’s trademark feta cheese. But the amateur Voukefalas club — whose players include pizza delivery guys, students, waiters and a bartender — has raised eyebrows with its flamboyant sponsorship choice. “Unfortunately, amateur football has been abandoned by almost everyone,” said Yiannis Batziolas, the club’s youthful chairman, who runs a travel agency and is the team’s backup goalkeeper. “It’s a question of survival.” Prostitution is legal in Greece, where brothels operate under strict guidelines. Though garish neon signs advertising their services are tolerated, the soccer sponsorship has ruffled some feathers in the sports-mad city of Larissa. League organizers have banned the pink jerseys during games, saying the deal violates “the sporting ideal” and is inappropriate for underage fans. Batziolas acknowledges the sponsorship took his team by surprise. “They didn’t believe it in the beginning,” he said. “But when they
saw the shirts printed, they thought it was funny.” Near-bankrupt Greece is struggling to meet creditors’ relentless demands to slash spending and keep the euro as its currency. As Greece heads toward a sixth year of recession, drastic budget cuts have hammered many ordinary people: Retirees have been left to cover their own medical expenses, children have lost school bus services, and sports teams have scrambled to find sponsors as businesses close under the burden of emergency taxes. Brothel owner Soula Alevridou, a slightly built woman with a husky voice and the team’s new benefactor, has already paid more than 1,000 euros ($1,312) for players to wear her jerseys. The team is appealing the game ban, but that doesn’t worry the 67-year-old Alevridou, who says she’s only in it because she loves soccer. “It’s not the kind of business that needs promotion,” she said, dressed all in white and flanked by two young women in dark leggings at a recent game. “It’s a word-of-mouth kind of thing.” Her businesses — plushly decorated pastel-colored bungalows where 14 women are employed — have weathered the country’s financial disaster far better than most, and she readily acknowledges her success. “If we don’t help our scientists and athletes, where will we be?” she asked. “Greece has educated people, cultured people and good athletes. It’s better to help them than take our money to Switzerland.” Alevridou watched in disappointment as her team lost its fourth straight game, 1-0, despite her promise to players of “a special time” at

A cash-strapped Greek soccer team has found a new way to pay the bills, with help from the world’s oldest profession. her businesses if they won. “There’s a lot still missing; we have no midfield,” said Alevridou. “Many of our boys have jobs that keep them working at night. And if we have a game the following morning, they can’t have a real presence on the pitch. … They need more help.” They aren’t the only team suffering. Greece’s Amateur Athletics Federation suspended all its activities for several weeks earlier this year to protest funding cuts. And even the major soccer clubs sent most of their star players abroad this summer in the face of financial trouble and poor

attendance, with fans no longer able to afford tickets. Government cuts have hurt most of the teams in the amateur league in Larissa — the majestically named Olympus, Hercules, Fearless and Sagittarius clubs, as well as Voukefalas, named after Alexander the Great’s horse. The impact of the crisis on sports is a major local concern. The town of 200,000 fielded the only professional club to ever break big-city domination of the league, winning the national championship in 1988. In 2007, Larissa FC also rebounded
from bankruptcy for victory in the prestigious Greek Cup. Voukefalas says it needs about 10,000 euros ($13,120) a year to meet expenses, and Alevridou has promised more cash. “Here is where it all begins, with amateur sport; it’s where the talent is bred,” she noted. “I am a Greek woman, and I love my country.” She watched quietly, holding a cigarette and wearing a straw fedora with a leopard-print band, as her team struggled. “The team will get better,” she said. “I’m certain of it.”
