Candy swap carnival to educate community by Kallie Red-Horse Daily Lobo

The American Medical Student Association is trading candy bars for fruits and veggies during their Healthy Halloween Carnival to benefit the Children’s Miracle Network. The carnival is taking place in the Honors Forum, on the ground level of the Student Health Center, on Friday and will include a silent auction, live music and painting and games for children. Also, health care professionals will attend the carnival to provide information for parents with pediatric health questions, said AMSA codirector Anna Vestling. “We wanted to create an event that would promote awareness of pediatric health,” she said. “We decided to take advantage of Halloween, which is an event in which health is typically overlooked.” Vestling said health education, started at a young age, establishes lifelong healthy habits that affect an individual’s health. “The two greatest contributing factors to illness are age, which you can’t do anything about, and diet, which you can,” she said. “The sooner you start making informed decisions about your life, the healthier you will be. We are trying to inform as many people as possible about this.” Caitlin Berger, AMSA’s Health Awareness and Education Action Committee co-chairwoman, said the carnival should also increase community support of the UNM

Children’s Hospital. “UNM, as a campus, really needs to get involved in the surrounding community,” she said. “A good way to do that is by helping the children in the hospital see that even though they’re sick right now and can’t come out and celebrate, there are people that care about them. It helps them realize that they are not alone and that the community really does care about them.” Daniel Jaecks, development specialist for the Children’s Hospital, said he appreciates the volunteers’ time as well as the financial donations from events like the carnival. “The fact that the students are busy studying and working (and) they still take time to do something for someone else is fantastic,” Jaecks said. “I think it’s important, not only for the community but for the students who get involved to show that they care. If more people gave a little, it adds up to a lot and this is a great start.” Vestling said AMSA started planning the event in August, and it took them time to have pediatric health care professionals agree to participate. “We are going to be having ophthalmologists, dentists and all sorts of different professionals that focus on children’s health,” she said. “We are trying to reach out to adults to promote improvement for their children’s health and diet, especially for the holiday season. It’s an effort to promote a lot of health information for parents and

students alike.” Vestling said AMSA is planning more events than in previous years because they want to increase the organization’s presence on campus and provide health information. “We now have four action committees headed by three chairs, with each action committee holding one event per semester, adding up to eight to 12 events every semester,” she said. “This week we have actually had three events, next week we have one, and two more over the course of the next semester.” Jaecks said the hospital benefits from the community interaction that comes from AMSA’s events. The community’s response to AMSA’s events show the need for it, too. “It’s always nice to know that the community is out there and they do care and they want the hospital to provide the best care, which we are able to do because of the funding that comes in,” he said. “Just because you are sick doesn’t mean you are done being a kid.”

Funds for another parking structure on campus may go toward projects at the UNM Health Sciences Center instead. At their meeting yesterday, the Board of Regents’ Finance and Facilities Committee decided to support $12 million in HSC projects instead of the proposed C Lot parking structure at Redondo Drive and Las Lomas Road. The parking structure under construction at Lomas and Yale boulevards won’t be affected. The Board of Regents will decide the final fate of the funds at their meeting Nov. 10. University spokeswoman Susan McKinsey said the UNM administration proposed the change in project funding because HSC projects will bring more money back to UNM than a parking structure. “There are a number of needs on campus and people say, ‘Well, why do they pick those projects and not something that could have been on main campus?’” McKinsey said. “Well, the issue is that these projects can earn

money and can pay off a debt service. That’s why they went with these.” Projects that might receive funding include the Dental Residency Clinic, Neurosurgery and Spine Center, regenerative medicine, the Domenici Center for Health Sciences Education and the Clinical and Translational Science Center. The $12 million needed to fund the projects will come out of UNM’s 2007 bond issue proceeds. HSC spokesman William Sparks said the HSC received $137.5 million in grant money last year. In a letter to the Finance and Facilities Committee, Andrew Cullen, associate vice president of Planning, Budget and Analysis, said building another parking structure would raise parking fees at a time when people might not be willing to pay them. “Given the prospect of flat salaries in the near future for faculty and staff, it is recommended that the University attempt to hold parking fees as flat as possible,” Cullen said in the letter. “The postponement of the construction of the C Lot parking structure will

Zionists say protective state for Jews is essential by Andrew Beale Daily Lobo

Noel Pugach, professor of foreign relations and Jewish studies, gave an in-depth history of Zionism in the SUB on Thursday. About 15 students attended the event, which was sponsored by the UNM Israel Alliance. Zionism is the belief that a Jewish state, represented today by Israel, should exist to support the security of the Jewish people, Pugach said. Pugach said Zionism is based on thinking of Jews as a people rather than a religious group. “Jews are different than Christians or Muslims because not only are they a faith, but they are bound as a people, and they are tied emotionally and physically to a piece of land — the land of Israel,” he said. “Modern Zionism is largely a secular movement.” Pugach said anti-Semitism played an important role in uniting Jewish people around the idea of creating a Jewish state. “The anti-Semitic outburst in Germany and Central Europe in the late 19th century combined with the worsening persecution in Eastern Europe … led to the conclusion that Jews would be safe only when they had a state, only when they controlled their destiny,” he said.

The Holocaust cemented the idea that a Jewish state was necessary, Pugach said, and acted as a catalyst for the creation of Israel. “This movement to return to the land of Israel came before the Holocaust. What the Holocaust did was to confirm it,” he said. “Had there been a Jewish state in 1934 when Hitler came to power … then millions of Jews would have been saved.”

“I think Zionism in itself is a positive thing because it has given the Jewish people a homeland.” ~Student Natti Willcoxon Pugach said worldwide nationalist movements and the Enlightenment also played pivotal roles in creating the ideology of Zionism. Donald Gluck, president of the UNM Israel Alliance, said that as European nationalist movements developed, the Zionist movement grew. “It was a movement as the Italians

assist with this goal.� Sparks said expanding the Dental Residency Clinic will help with the shortage of dentists in New Mexico. “The Dental Residency Program is a proven solution to the crisis of fewer and fewer dentists being available in New Mexico, especially in rural areas,� Sparks


said. “The retention rate for dental residencies is very high, so by increasing capacity for the residency program we can have an immediate impact on dental care throughout the state.� In a statement, Paul Roth, vice president of Health Sciences, said the Dental Residency Clinic additions would cost $2 million.

Another proposed project — the Clinical and Translational Sciences Center — would take the place of the old Cancer Center, Sparks said. He said the center would translate medical research into new cures. “If you’re focusing on a problem like obesity, diabetes or alcoholism — those kinds of things

— you want practical applications for your science,� he said. “The Clinical and Translational Sciences Center is a huge opportunity to attract additional research projects and additional faculty. There are only so many of those centers in the country.� Sparks said funding for the neurosurgery clinic would also

attract larger research grants and top researchers. “The Neurosurgery and Spine Center will have a clinical and a research application involved,� he said. “This will lead to cutting edge research. Last year the HSC broke the record for the amount of research grants received in our history.�

Locksley and team face former head coach Long by Ryan Tomari Daily Lobo

No, it’s not the “Return of the Mack,” the hit 90s song by Mark Morrison — it’s just the return of UNM’s head football coach, Mike Locksley, to a 0-7 team. After a 10-day suspension for being involved in a physical altercation with assistant coach J.B. Gerald, Locksley and the Lobos travel to sunny southern California on Saturday to face San Diego State University. “It’s great to be back, and it’s been a difficult 10 days,” Locksley said. “When something has been such a big part of your life — and for me it’s over 30 years since I last had football not be a part of my everyday life — it’s given me a little time to reflect. It’s given me an appreciation of the opportunities that I have or have had from coaching.” But there’s at least one thing Locksley won’t appreciate: The Aztecs’ 48-28 come-from-behind win over Colorado State in Fort Collins, Colo. Quarterback Ryan Lindley rallied SDSU in the second half, after the team was down 21-7 at halftime. The Mountain West Conference Co-Player of the Week — who shared the honor with teammate and wide receiver DeMarco Sampson — led the Aztecs to five straight

scoring drives. Lindley threw for a career-high 459 yards and six touchdowns. The six touchdowns are a MWC record. Three of Lindley’s scoring strikes went to wide receiver Sampson. Sampson hauled in TD receptions of five, 33 and 38 yards. To go with his three touchdown catches, Sampson caught a total of 15 passes for 257 yards, all of which are career bests for the wideout. The comeback victory over CSU puts SDSU at 3-4 overall and 1-2 in the MWC. Locksley said he’s concerned about what the Aztec offense is capable of, but he knows when Lobo fans flip to CBS College Sports to watch the two schools duel, they’ll be watching more than just another game. “San Diego State happens to have my predecessor on their staff as the defensive coordinator,” he said. “Rocky (Long) is a guy whom I have respected from the day I took over this job for what he was able to do here at this program.” Long is in his first season as SDSU’s defensive coordinator, and it will be the first time he coaches against his alma mater, a program he led for 11 years. For some in the Lobos’ locker room, it will be an arousing moment, but wide receiver Chris Hernandez said he’s not concerned. “I’d have to say it’d probably be emotional for (Long),” Hernandez said. “But I think he’s taking it just like we’re taking it, you know, like the next game on the schedule. I know we really need a win, and I am not sure how their season is going, but I know they would like a win, too.”

From the web In “Albuquerque’s nonconformist population is hard to find,” published Thursday, student Pancho Orozco said that he is new to the Albuquerque area, and he expected to meet more nonconformists than he has. He wondered where all the visionaries were. Readers responded with some Southwest hospitality: by ‘Summerspeaker’ Posted Thursday “Welcome to Albuquerque, Pancho. As a vegan anarchist, I can offer a few suggestions. First, I invite you to come by Food Not Bombs. We share a lunch every Monday, Wednesday and Friday around noon in front of the UNM Bookstore. We’re planning a rally for Dec. 1 with other progressive and radical organizations to oppose our new mayor and the city’s shift to the right. Second, there’s Trinity House, a Catholic worker house in the South Valley. It’s located at 1925 Five Points Rd. They do a lot of free food distribution here. Trinity House has a vegetarian potluck every Thursday at 6 p.m. They often have discussions afterward; last week (we) talked about anarcho-primitivism. Coming to a potluck would be a good way to get to know the Catholic workers and associated community. Third, you may wish to check out the Albuquerque Center for Peace and Justice, located a few blocks from campus at the corner of Silver Avenue and Harvard Drive. Members range from liberal to various brands of radicals. They host countless progressive events each year. Finally, there are groups such the (Industrial Workers of the World) IWW and La Raza Unida Party here in Albuquerque ... You might want to hit them up, depending on exactly what you’re interested in.” by ‘slowhike’ Posted Thursday “Hi Pancho, welcome to our little campus. Don’t fret — there are many, many liberal freeloaders, tree huggers, reverse-discrimination proponents and minority champions lurking around. They may be just below the surface … But they do surface from time to time, and would be ecstatic to welcome another minority whiner. You can even find some individuals to help you raise the Mexican flag if you so desire.” by ‘slowhike’ Posted Thursday “Heads up for Pancho — be careful if you are thinking about meeting people like ‘Summerspeaker’ and the like. This is a sure way to get your photo and ID documented with the FBI and border patrol. It may sound like an adventurous and fun filled escapade … until you hear the pounding on your door one night.” by ‘Smiley’ Posted Thursday “Orozco, highly funded movements are trying to win people’s minds in this hot spot called Albuquerque. They can take the form of ‘democrats,’ ‘republicans,’ ‘liberal’ or ‘conservative.’ However, it’s the people who think outside of these loaded labels, the kind you describe, that must continue to be active and fight for people’s hearts and minds. Otherwise, we’re all going under, regardless how left or right we are.” by ‘Summerspeaker’ Posted Thursday “Repression has yet to reach such proportions here in Albuquerque, ‘slowhike.’” Join the discussion at

Socialized health care a plus in other countries by Eva Dameron Opinion editor

In the midst of all this talk about health care reform, I am lucky to have ended up in the emergency room twice this year — once at a hospital in Albuquerque and another time in Barcelona, Spain. But I don’t have health insurance. For those of you who fear that socialized health care would result in subpar medical service, you’ll be happy to know my experience in the Spanish hospital was awesome. I was bitten by a snub-nosed viper outside of Barcelona atop a mountain. The result put me in the hospital for almost five weeks — where at first I expected to have my leg amputated if I didn’t die first — they gave me a 70 percent chance of survival. I had six operations to irrigate the muscles, a long series of Xrays and a skin graft from Dr. Joan Font, who, according to the nurses, is the best plastic surgeon in Europe. Actresses even fly out for

his services. I was served three home-cooked, balanced meals daily. If I needed something, like painkillers, something to help me fall asleep, thrombosis cream or a walker, they were there for me right away. When I had been living in the hospital for a few weeks, I uncharacteristically went through a hysterical tantrum. The kind nurse called for the psychiatrist two floors up, who came and calmed me down effectively with words, and then left. I’m just trying to say here that I needed many things, and it was a lot of work for them. With Spain’s health care system, the hospital staff gets paid whether or not their patients can afford it. They seemed rested, calm, professional, attentive and genuinely concerned about my well-being and everyone else’s. When I left the hospital, I did not owe them any money. They did give me a list of four prescriptions to buy from the pharmacy. These were also incredibly cheap, amounting to no more than $60. Today my leg is healing faster

than the doctors had estimated. Now for the contrast. A few months before my trip to Spain, I wound up in an Albuquerque emergency room with something amounting to a burning hole in my stomach. The pain was astronomical and I could do nothing but scream. The first nurse I met with, who checked my vitals, was rude and snappy to the point of making me cry. When I finally got a room, instead of giving me something for the pain or even bothering to check on how I was doing, another nurse snapped at me to be quiet, and she closed the door completely so nobody could hear me and left me there for an hour. After an X-ray, a bag of morphine drip and some rest, I was released. I was there for about thirteen hours and they charged me close to $6,000. That means that if I had been bitten by the viper here in the states, my bill would have been more than $350,000 for uncaring care. In Spain, I instead paid $0 and had a true healing experience. I want socialized medicine.


Be proactive about the situation, don’t complain Editor, This is in response to Muhajir Salam, who wrote a letter to the editor about his religion classes on Monday. Mr. Salam, I am very surprised that, as a college student, you were unable to figure out that anyone other than you would know the true meaning of Islam. I also am an American

Immigration problem due to glamorizing America Editor, I oppose treating immigrants as criminals just because they do not have legal papers. I oppose treating people who compassionately help these immigrants as criminals. I oppose a fence and wall between the U.S. and Mexico. I support full human rights for all immigrants. If the U.S. wants to reduce the number of immigrants coming from Mexico and other nations, the U.S. needs to work for justice for the millions of poor and working people in Mexico and other nations.

Sure we adhere to the same major tenets of Islam, but there is a world of difference as to our interpretations of Islam. I have been told by some Muslims that I’m not a real Muslim because I was not born in the Middle East or because I have not gone on hajj. People may say things about the holy prophet Muhammad but do not buy into it. Jesus has been trashed more than once. Do Christians take it personally? Do not take it personally. The world

has been thirsty for knowledge about Islam. Unfortunately the thirst has been quenched with dirty water. Do not belly ache, educate.

If the U.S. wants to reduce the number of immigrants from Mexico and other nations, we Americans need to change our lives to live simply and fairly in the world family of 6.7 billion people. We need to stop glamorizing U.S. greed, cars, big houses and crazy consumer crap in U.S. movies and magazines that go to Mexico and other nations. U.S. movies and magazines seduce people abroad to come here and get addicted to the stupid crap most Americans are addicted to. Immigrants who have no legal papers often take the jobs that most Americans do not want. Many U.S. employers underpay these immigrants. Some U.S. employers call

the U.S. immigration offices to arrest these immigrant employees just before payday. Some U.S. employers cheat these immigrants on their paychecks. I reject the term “illegal aliens.” All immigrants are our sisters and brothers. The U.S. invaded Mexico and waged war in Mexico more than 150 years ago. Besides slaughtering many people in Mexico, the U.S. stole from Mexico most of what is the U.S. southwest today. So today’s U.S. border with Mexico is illegal and resulted from the U.S. invasion, war and massive theft from Mexico in 1848. The only people in the U.S. who are not immigrants or the descendants of immigrants are full-blooded Native Americans.

lobo golf

Zach Gould / Daily Lobo UNM men’s golfer James Erkenbeck gazes into the distance. Erkenbeck, who throughout most of his life played soccer, focused on golf in high school. He finished his third straight tournament with a top-10 finish in the Baylor Intercollegiate on Tuesday.

Soccer player aspires towards golf career by Loretta Cardenas Daily Lobo

Sophomore James Erkenbeck has taken eight years to make his interest in playing golf into more than just a fun hobby — now he’s looking to go professional. “There was a golf course close to my house, and all of my friends and I just decided to play for fun,” Erkenbeck said. “And then I just got a passion for it, and I’ve stuck with it since I was 12.” And he’s been successful. The fall season is over, and Erkenbeck finished his third straight tournament with a top-10 finish in the Baylor Intercollegiate, which concluded on Tuesday. Erkenbeck was also a longtime soccer player, but he realized during his freshman year in high school that he was steadily losing interest in the sport. He tried being a dual athlete, playing both soccer and golf, but he said he had to choose between the game he played his whole life and the one he liked and casually picked as a hobby. He said he is happy with his decision to play golf. Head coach Glen Millican said he couldn’t agree more. “James is a hard worker who is continuing to improve,” he said. “The main thing he’s improved on is his patience, which has allowed him to get the most out of his game.” Erkenbeck, who grew up in San Diego, said the decision to change sports was easy — simply, California is full of lush golf courses, so he had easy access to play. And he has top-notch facilities, at UNM, too, he said. “The golf program here is one of the top in the country and the practice facilities are great,” Erkenbeck said. “Since I want to become a professional golfer, there are not too many places better to prepare myself.”

Maintaining the motivation needed to compete at a high level is one of the hardest parts of playing, Erkenbeck said, even though golf breeds a competitive atmosphere. The reason: golf is almost exclusively an individual, self-paced sport. “You’re pretty much out there by yourself most of the time,” Erkenbeck said. “It’s difficult because sometimes the better player doesn’t win tournaments, because he may not have the same direction like other guys.” But Erkenbeck said going out alone, day after day, to practice his swings and his putting is only half the battle. The other half is the grueling schedule. Whether there is a tournament or not, Erkenbeck said that golf takes up at least half of his days and the other half is used to keep up his grades. “We’ll have team workouts from 7 to 8 a.m. Then we’ll go to school from about 9 a.m. to noon, grab some lunch and then head out to the course from 1 p.m. until the sun goes down and then the rest of the night is used to do homework,” he said. “Tournament days are just as tough. We have to get out to the course a couple days before for our practice rounds and normally we’ll be out there from 6 a.m. to 6 p.m. It makes for some long days.” Erkenbeck said he has been playing well, but he still needs to continue working on the technical aspects of his game. He has already mastered another aspect of the game, through a superstitious ritual he uses before he heads to the golf course for a tournament. “I always mark my golf ball the same way,” he said. “I draw a line over part of the golf ball to line up the hole for where I’m trying to aim it, but then sometimes I cover up the number because I’m pretty superstitious about that. I like the number eight, so I’ll mark off the number and draw a red eight on it.”

Face off from page 3 Lobo center Erik Cook said Long’s defense will include exotic blitz packages, and he expects the Aztecs to be relentless in their approach. “I am expecting his blitz-happy defense,” he said. Cook said he remembers how significant his football career has been at UNM — and some of that is because of Long.

“He brought me here, and Albuquerque is my home town,” Cook said. “He was my coach for four years, and you can’t have anything but respect for the guy. He was a great coach.” Still, Cook said fans shouldn’t expect to see a handshake between players who still respect Long prior to kickoff at Qualcomm Stadium.
