UNM upbeat about Legislative session



New legislators may help pass bills resolving the Lottery Scholarship shortfall, tax credit for hiring grad students by John Tyczowski

New members in the Legislature may mean this year’s session will end in UNM’s favor. This year’s Legislature has the largest freshman group in two decades, with nearly 35 new senators and representatives participating in this session, said Marc Saavedra, UNM’s director of government relations. It is possible some of them will be more sympathetic to UNM’s legislative requests, including to measures to ensure the future of the New Mexico Lottery Legislative Success Scholarship, he said. “We’re off to a good start this session,” he said. UNM is pushing for legislation that would keep the Lottery Scholarship fund from running out. If nothing changes, its funding will run dry by July of this year.

Saavedra said a bill to save the Lottery Scholarship has been in the works for the past four years. The amount of money the bill required to keep the scholarship afloat had stopped its passage, he said. But for this legislative session, which started Tuesday, he’s confident the bill will pass because they’re using different tactics and the pressure is on. “It’s like the recent fiscal cliff situation in Washington,” he said. “Sometimes a crisis deadline has a way of pulling things together.” UNM is also advocating for legislation that gives incentives for graduate and professional students to work in New Mexico after graduation, Saavedra said. Specifically, it’s pushing for tax credits to businesses that hire these in-state students. The same bill made it to the last day of the session in 2012, and was poised to pass but never went to a vote, he said.

For the past five days, Albuquerque has experienced temperatures close to zero degrees Fahrenheit.

UNM team finds water in Martian rock Illegal

downloads run risk of lawsuit

by Ardee Napolitano

Alien life may not be just a filmmaker’s fantasy anymore, as UNM scientists have discovered rich water content in a Martian meteorite. UNM Institute of Meteoritics director Carl Agee said the meteorite, which he first received in August 2011, contained 10 times the normal amount of water in Martian meteorites. Although this does not prove the existence of life on the red planet, he said the amount of water in the rock makes it more feasible for Martian organisms to exist. “It doesn’t say anything directly about (life on Mars) because we haven’t found life directly from the meteorite,” he said. “But in order for life to exist, you have to have water.” Nonetheless, Agee said he is optimistic that life exists on Mars. “There’s a possibility that Martian life, if it did ever exist, has gone underground or is near a volcanic area,” he said. “But we’re still dealing with a lot of ignorance about it. We need to look at more. Ultimately, the human species is going to go out there and visit Mars.” Agee said the meteorite was first found by a Bedouin meteorite hunter in the Sahara Desert in 2011, who then sold it to a Moroccan meteorite dealer. An American meteorite collector then bought it from the dealer, but was uncertain

Those using UNM Wi-Fi for illegal downloading may face legal action. In an email dated Dec. 7, 2012, UNM Student Affairs stated there has been a recent increase in illegal downloading cases on campus. According to the letter, UNM has received complaints from companies such as the Recording Industry Association of America and the Motion Picture Association of America that “individual users of the University’s Internet system are engaged in illegal file sharing.” Student Affairs Vice President Eliseo “Cheo” Torres said that this is the second consecutive year they have had to send the letter to the University community.

“In the end, the bill simply ran out of time,� Saavedra said. That bill, sponsored last year by Sen. Timothy Keller (D-Albuquerque), will enjoy added support from the Taxation and Revenue Committee this session, Saavedra said. “We hope that this can help us go even farther this year,� he said. In addition to the Lottery Scholarship solvency efforts, the Educator Retirement Fund solvency efforts, and solvency efforts for all University retirement funds are high on the agenda.

The Health Sciences Center is requesting $250,000 to create a task force to plan the new College of Public Health. UNM President Robert Frank’s expertise and support in the planning stages of the college add a level of prestige to the bill, Saavedra said. “Before coming to UNM, President Frank was the dean of public health at both the University of Florida and Kent State University,� Saavedra said. “He had plenty of experience to draw upon to work to create this new task force.�

He said it has probably formed by a violent volcano explosion on the surface of Mars. “It was found in a time when Mars was transforming from being warm and wet into the cold, dry desert that we are seeing today,â€? he said. “This meteorite is probably sampling a period when geological ‌ change was taking place.â€? Victor Polyak, a senior research scientist in the Department of Earth and Planetary Sciences and an author of the study, said the meteorite is 2.1 billion years old.

Polyak, who primarily worked with age dating, said this is relatively old compared to other Martian samples. “It turns out that the age of the meteorite is also unique,� he said. “There’s no other Martian meteorite with this age. Most of them are much younger with less than a billion years old or so.� Agee said the meteorite is the second oldest Martian meteorite ever discovered. They based the meteorite’s age on a test called rubidium-strontium dating, Polyak said. This means they measure the number

of rubidium and strontium isotopes in the meteorite. He said because they did the test with five samples from the meteorite, their findings are sound. Agee said this discovery enables scientists to do fine-scale tests that Martian rovers can’t do, and so it will help the Curiosity mission, which is also looking for water on Mars. He said that at the moment he and his team are studying the mineral composition of the meteorite, along with the gasses trapped in the rock, which resemble those in the Martian atmosphere.

file sharing through UNM’s computing services, he said. “A lot of companies are now very sensitive, especially when they download music that hasn’t been paid for,” he said. “They want to pursue legal action against people who download these, so we’re warning students to be careful.” According to UNM’s Acceptable Computer Use Policy, users can only download files online if they have the appropriate permissions from the copyright owner or if the file is in public domain. The policy states that users are responsible for obtaining permissions themselves, and that if they fail to do so, they may be barred from using computer services on campus. In addition, students who are caught downloading files illegally are subject to disciplinary actions, such as probation, suspension or expulsion. Torres said that because there are many students who use computers at the University on a daily basis, it is difficult for the University to identify specific students who download files illegally. “It’s hard to monitor that,” he said. “We just have to remind them to be cautious and to be careful.” But Robert Burford, student conduct officer for the dean of students, said companies have their own agents who monitor illegal downloading activity on campus. Burford said that when agents spot illegal activity, they file a complaint with UNM’s information technology department, which in turn refers the case to the dean of students. He said that through this process, it becomes easier to prevent illegal file sharing on campus. “It’s very easy for students to get caught, especially when they’re using University computing

He said no student has ever been suspended or expelled for an infraction.

Burford said these penalties do not exempt students from facing legal action filed against them by companies. “Sometimes, students get in the habit of downloading music or movies or things like that,” he said. “And some of the companies will usually seek financial restitution, which can be hundreds of dollars or up to thousands of dollars.” To prevent the problem, Torres said student affairs is now educating students about University policies during new student orientations. He said they are also encouraging faculty members to remind students about copyright laws. “All we want is to protect students from any legal action,” he said. “Sometimes, you don’t have to pay that much to make (your downloads) legal.”

The Independent Student Voice of UNM since 1895

Opinion Editor/ Alexandra Swanberg/ @AlexSwanberg

From the web

Readers responded online to the column “Old arguments bog down gun debate,” published in Monday’s Daily Lobo. The column was in response to the Dec. 14 shooting at Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown, Conn. and calls for a change in dialogue surrounding the gun debate. by “Rudemix” “Once you negate the use of laws to combat murderers because they’ll kill anyway, it’s kind of pointless to posit other solutions such as armed guards or metal detectors. After all, a highly motivated individual will kill anyway, yes? Let’s just let things continue along as status quo because laws won’t work, and asking rational, law-abiding citizens to be sheep for the slaughter of highly motivated killers is the best course we can take.” by “CodyA” “Nobody is saying we should let things continue as status quo. Talking about more gun control, however, is a pointless discussion and would have no effect other than restricting the rights of the law abiding, and giving the politicians something they think they can feel good about because they ‘did something.’ Could you imagine how many more people would have died had James Holmes set off those explosives he manufactured instead of shooting up the theater? Or if he stayed quiet and let police set off enough explosives in his apartment to bring down the entire complex? Or how many more children would have died had Adam Lanza assaulted the classrooms with a machete, Molotov cocktails, chains, and locks instead of two pistols (the scary ‘assault rifle’ was found in his trunk)? As for the question of ‘Who really needs an assault rifle or magazines capable of holding more than 10 rounds,’ I say, who really needs cars that can travel in excess of 55 mph? I mean, it was the speed limit only 20 years ago, and speed is the leading factor in fatal accidents. Why not govern all vehicles at 55 mph and ban any cars that can go faster than that? I’ll bet you didn’t know there are more murders using personal weapons (hands, fists, and feet) every year than all rifles and shotguns combined, according to the FBI’s Uniform Crime Report. Yes, that includes the infamous AR-15 as well as your grandfather’s bolt action rifle and double barrel shotgun. Something should be done, but we need to look at the more difficult issues to tackle, such as mental health in America and directly protecting our children in schools. Gun control is so 1990s.” To join the conversation, visit

Climate crisis will ruin our kids’ lives by Peter Kindilien

Daily Lobo columnist

From 1913 through 2012, the world population quadrupled from 1.65 to 7 billion people. In this relatively short time frame, the Earth’s ecosystem has been stressed beyond its ability to sustain our civilization. While we swarmed the planet, dumping and pumping more and more waste, we consistently disregarded the visionaries who anticipated and warned us of the consequences of exceeding the biosphere’s carrying capacity. In old western movies, we see locomotives chug across the plains, trailing long black clouds of sooty smoke. I bet even the horses were thinking “what the eff?” the first time they heard one of these beasts of metal, wheezing after a toxic whiff burned through their nostrils. Smokestacks from heavy industry, combined with exhausts from our numerous modes of transportation, are the main source of increasing greenhouse gases. To nail the case that we are clueless as a race, in our continuous quest to develop the technology to kill ten times as many of our enemies in a tenth of the time for a million times the cost, we have designed the most fuel-inefficient devices on the planet: machines of war. Moving troops and supplies all around the world produces a substantial amount of pollutants in itself; but military aircraft, warships and tanks are in a class of their own for burning massive amounts of carbon-based fuels without meeting any clean-air standards. And then there are all those nasty explosions.

Are children in Afghanistan who are massacred by the United States’ drone attacks less human than the children massacred in Sandy Hook? Are children in Palestine who are massacred by United States’ helicopters less precious than the children massacred in Sandy Hook? Do the families of Iraqi children massacred by the United States’ bombs suffer less agony than the families of children

In addition to two world wars, nuclear detonations and several major nuclear accidents, let us not forget Saddam Hussein’s treacherous gift to mankind — the burning oil fields in Kuwait. Not to be outdone, we bombed his munitions depot, releasing a cloud of deadly sarin gas that drifted over our own troops, causing the largest amount of friendly-fire casualties in our military’s history. Today, newborn babies in Beijing are immediately challenged to just survive their first day of life in a disgustingly smog-shrouded city, without the benefit of a gas mask. In recognition of the health dangers involved, their government wisely plans on building as many more coalburning power plants as possible, in as short a time as possible, to meet the energy needs of their growing economy. By U.S. law, a National Climate Assessment report is commissioned every four years. The latest one, about to be released, outlines the increasing economic stresses we will face, as climate change drastically reduces our ability to continue developing and expanding, and possibly even to maintain social order and discipline. The 300 or so scientists preparing the report squarely place the blame on burning fossil fuels. Additionally, they warn in no uncertain terms that the United States, the strongest economy in the world, will have great difficulty in dealing with the financial repercussions. Note that the release of these reports was completely suppressed during George W. Bush’s tenure. The Stern Review on the Economics of Climate Change, released in 2006, is the most highly regarded report of its kind. It outlines the longterm costs to world economies in the case that

Letters massacred in Sandy Hook? When would it be right for another nation to murder our children? If never, how can it be right for the United States to murder their children? Is the United States’ mass murder of thousands of children in many nations for decades less evil than the insane gunman’s mass murder of 20 children in Sandy Hook? We have paid no federal income tax for more than 30 years. We refuse to pay for the United States to massacre multitudes of moms, dads and children. Chuck Hosking Don Schrader Daily Lobo readers

we continue forcing surface temperatures to rise. The argument is very persuasively in favor of acting now. For those who say “What about the cost to our economy if we try to slow down?” this is the response: the cost will be substantially worse if we continue to procrastinate. So now we have squarely put ourselves in the land of “intergenerational equity.” We are trapped in a globalized system that demands continued non-sustainable development, completely disregarding the cost to nature, the environment, and our own societies. Like many individuals, governments have been living way beyond their means, financially and in terms of global resources. The cost will be multiplied many times through the further depletion and probable collapse of much of the planet’s ecological infrastructure. Because we are too cheap and morally corrupt to accept responsibility for what we have created and try to halt it, our descendants will be faced with depleted resources and harsher climate conditions than mankind has ever known. We face an urgent crisis of survival and an issue of justice between our generation and those that follow. As farmers and ranchers in record numbers of drought-stricken areas of the world can assure you, there is no substitute for water when you don’t have it. The stability of any market system relies on the continued availability of the least abundant required resource. This is well known, and scientists globally agree that human activity is the root cause of most warming. So why do we still have politicians with no scientific background claiming that climate change is a hoax?

Instead of a gun ban, make guns mandatory Editor, Given the present attitude in this country, maybe the only way to restore safety for all is to make it unlawful for any person over the age of 15 not to carry a gun when in public and to not limit in any way the type of gun he or she may carry, nor the amount of ammunition he or she may carry. If we were to do that, it might also alleviate any consequences of the overpopulation problem we currently have. Robert Gardiner Daily Lobo reader

Firm: Our microwave destroys bread mold by Betsy Blaney

The Associated Press LUBBOCK, Texas — Attention, bread shoppers: A Texas company could have the answer to some consumers’ unwelcome discovery that just-purchased loaves contain mold. MicroZap Inc. says its technology allows bread to stay mold-free for 60 days. The bread is bombarded with microwaves for about 10 seconds, which kills the mold spores, said chief executive officer Don Stull. The process could eliminate bakers’ need for preservatives and ingredients used to mask preservatives’ flavor, as well as reduce food waste and increase bread’s shelf life, he said. Researchers at Texas Tech University also see using the technology in bread made in developing countries, where there are fewer food safety standards and spoilage is a problem. “It could help us provide an abundant food source for those in need,” said Mindy Brashear, director of the Lubbock university’s Center for Food Industry Excellence. The prospect of helping people in developing countries is what motivated the microbiology professor to help develop the technology over the last eight years. After 60 days, researchers found the treated bread that remained packaged had the same mold content when compared to a freshly baked loaf, Stull said. In the end, though, he knows it comes down to consumers’ palates. “The consumers saw no discernible quality difference in the breads,” Stull said of testers who found the treated bread’s taste and texture unchanged. An Associated Press reporter found the same. Though slightly warm from the microwaves, a piece of whole-grain white bread was soft and tasted like one that hadn’t been zapped. Sixty-day-old bread was not available to taste. Estimates from the Natural Resources Defense Council this year indicated that in 2008, in-store food losses in the U.S. totaled an estimated 43 billion pounds — 10 percent of all foods supplied to retail outlets

— most of which are perishables, including bread. Unrefrigerated bread in plastic packaging will succumb to mold in about 10 days, so keeping it at bay for 60 days presents a fresh proposition. Not so fast, says Ruth MacDonald, professor and chair of food science and human nutrition at Iowa State University. There are thousands of airborne mold spores everywhere, she said, adding that though bread producers might like the technology for storage and transportation, those spores are problematic at home. “Once you open (the bag of bread), all bets are off,” she said. Mold is a type of fungus that forms because bread wrapped in plastic packaging still has water inside it. When that trapped water begins to evaporate inside the bag, the bread’s surface becomes moist, creating the ideal environment for mold. Researchers with the university tested the MicroZap on three different mold types on breads inside plastic bags with twist ties, and the microwaves destroyed each one. But there are characteristics that the zapping won’t improve; it won’t keep bread from going stale. As for touch, firmness and flavor after 60 days, one scientist had his doubts. “There would certainly be some questions that I would have around the texture of the bread holding for 60 days,” said Brian Strouts, head of experimental baking for the Manhattan, Kan.-based nonprofit American Institute of Baking. “It would not be the answer to all the problems with baked goods. There’s a lot of things that can start happening,” including bread becoming rancid. MicroZap is not a commercial bakery and has no plans to package its own bread or operate a plant where bread is treated. For now, its goal is to find a bread manufacturer that wants to implement a pilot program — using a similar metallic device as the testing prototype — in a production line. A patent is pending on the technology, Stull said, adding that they’re in talks with investors. The U.S. Department of Agriculture also has

contacted MicroZap about possibly using the technology for exported fruits and vegetables. Stull said MicroZap has just completed drawings for an in-home unit, so that consumers could treat bread and other foods themselves. He estimated an in-home unit would cost about $100 more than a regular microwave. Microwaving bread is not the same as irradiation — a technique that kills food pathogens — as no gamma rays are used. The U.S. government has approved irradiation for

a variety of foods — meat, spices, certain imported fruits, the seeds used to grow sprouts. It does not make the food radioactive. The microwaves used in the university lab are the same frequency as commercial units, but delivered in an array that gets a homogenous signal to the bread, eliminating the hot and cold spots common when heating food in kitchen microwaves. The technology — an effort funded by $1.5 million from Texas’ Emerging Technology Fund — was initially intended to kill bacteria such as

MRSA, a contagious bacterial infection that’s resistant to many commonly used antibiotics, and salmonella. But researchers discovered it also killed mold spores in bread and sterilized fresh or processed foods without cooking or damaging them. While bread manufacturers have expressed interest in the technology, there’s concern it could push up the price in an industry with already tight margins. “I think the consumers are going to drive this more than companies,” Stull said.

Yosemite sets hiker limit by Tracie Cone

The Associated Press FRESNO, Calif. — The hike up the granite monolith Half Dome in Yosemite National Park is one of the most iconic in the nationwide system, but on Friday officials announced approval of a plan that permanently limits how many can do it. National Park Service authorities will issue permits to limit the number of hikers to 300 a day, the target number since an interim plan was approved in 2010 to reduce congestion in a wilderness area and make the hike safer. In a blow to environmental groups, the park also decided to keep in place the heavy metal cables drilled into the monolith that hikers use to steady themselves on the 45-degree final climb up slick granite. Some groups had argued that handrails do not belong in a federally designated wilderness area. “With a place like Yosemite that is so dear and important to millions of people, everyone has ideas about what wilderness protection is. We tried to find a balance that allows people to still experience Yosemite while protecting Yosemite,” said spokeswoman Kari Cobb. Over the past decade the route had been inundated with up to 1,200 nature lovers a day seeking to experience the iconic mountain that is stamped on the California quarter, stitched on a line of outdoor clothing and painted on the side of the park’s vehicles. Congestion on the dome made it difficult for hikers to descend when inclement weather struck, as it often does on summer afternoons. At least five people have died on the cables since 2006, nearly all with rain as a factor. Park officials want visitors to be able to descend the slick granite in 45 minutes if they have to escape the fast-forming storms, and limiting numbers is the only way to do that, they say. As calls for rescues increased, park officials began looking for solutions in 2008. Two years later, an interim plan was introduced to allow 400 permits through a lottery system that takes place in March in an effort to keep the number on the trail to 300. Authorities have tweaked the system since then to account for no-shows and to allow a secondary lottery two days in advance for those who travel more spontaneously. “It was a really good tool that we used to provide noshow and cancellation permits to people who made last-minute plans,” Cobb said. In 1874 the slick dome that rises 5,000 feet above the valley floor was described as “perfectly inaccessible.” But in 1919 the Sierra Club installed the first cables

There is no doubt that if the decision were made today, there would be no braided steel cables and stanchions drilled into Half Dome. Congress passed the Wilderness Act in 1964, and 20 years later designated 95 percent of Yosemite, including Half Dome, as land that should not be altered by man. Now scaling Half Dome is a measure of personal fortitude for some who had worried that without cables access would be lost. “At this point I’m happy that the plan was selected to keep the cables up,” said Rick Deutsch, a Bay Area hiker who has written a book about the trek. “I’d say that based on the situation that exists with overcrowding, they have come up with a plan that looks like it should work.”

Among Downtown’s concrete sidewalks and stucco buildings, Alvarado Urban Farm sticks out like a sore, green thumb. The farm, located a block away from The Box Performance Space and Lotus Nightclub, is a hub for homegrown produce. The farm opened for business in September 2011 after farm asset manager Rick Rennie and the City of Albuquerque struck a deal with the Historic District Improvement Company (HDIC). The half-acre strip of land was to remain a patch of dirt before Rennie stepped forward with a solution. “I did not want to see it be dirt, so I made a proposal: ‘Let’s make it a farm,’â€? Rennie said. The urban farm has 82 beds for gardening where volunteers can plant, raise and harvest plants. Anyone interested can also play pĂŠtanque, a game that combines marbles with bowling, at one of the five courts. Rennie said the farm attracts volunteers of all ages and backgrounds, including students at ACE (Architecture, Construction & Engineering) Leadership High School to Albuquerque veterans. “It means a lot when I drive by and see what used be a piece of dirt, and I see 50 people out there playing pĂŠtanque and having a good time; it makes me feel good,â€? Rennie said. “When I see veterans out there, working the farms and I see one crying, I ask if he’s OK, and he says ‘Yeah, this is the only place where I can go that I don’t have nightmares,’ that makes it all worth it 50 times over.â€? The city agreement to run the farm ends Oct. 15, and Rennie said he is working to get the agreement renewed. “The dream is to have tables set up there, food trucks there, and people there to eat at the farm on an afternoon,â€? he said. “The theme is really growing together.â€? Rennie and HDIC project coordinator Zoya LoPata began a

12-week program in December to distribute local produce from the Alvarado Urban Farm and other local farms to customers. “The ultimate goal is that we can get enough people buying local produce so that we can get prices close to the produce you can get at the store,� Rennie said. “Typically, you pay more for local, but the more we can close that gap, the more we can get healthier food in everyone’s hands.� Amy Black, owner of the Supper Truck, works alongside HDIC and the farm. Her food truck is a pickup point for customers signed up for the produce program. Black said she had always wanted to open a food truck, and her volunteering at the urban farm became her path to doing so. “I wanted to be involved and have a connection with an urban farm and eventually get within that circle of being able to grow what we serve in the truck,� she said. “We haven’t completely gotten there yet, but we’re moving towards that direction.�

Black’s food truck sells small bags of produce every Friday for $10 to those signed up with the program. Black said each bag is a varied mix of vegetables: last week’s contained an assortment of salad greens, two cloves of garlic, carrots, potatoes and a loaf of bread from Bosque Baking Company. Black said she’s glad to be a part of the city’s growing interest in local food and local produce. “It’s all about the local aspect of things — people can buy local produce to take home and use, they can buy a dish off the food truck that’s a local business that utilizes that produce, and we buy from other local farms,� she said. “It’s really about the circle of local.� Alvarado Urban Farm 101 Silver Ave. S.W.

Odd skunk causes big stink

Wednesday, January 16, 2013/ Page 9

A hog-nosed skunk is seen near a campsite in the Grand Canyon in Arizona in this photo made on Aug. 4. A river guide familiar with animals in the Canyon spotted the skunk, not known to the area, and now park officials are deciding whether to add it to the list of species found in the park or ignore it as just another animal passing through. Jen Hiebert AP photo

by Felicia Fonseca The Associated Press

FLAGSTAFF, Ariz. — Desert bighorn sheep, river otters and mountain lions, yes. But a hog-nosed skunk at the Grand Canyon? Hardly. The striped creatures are usually found in southeastern Arizona, Texas and Mexico. But one of them somehow made its way north of the Colorado River last year. A group of rafters camping along the river in August was headed for bed when they noticed a black-and-white animal in the bushes near one of their tents. Jen Hiebert grabbed her camera, zoomed in and took some pictures. When the rafters didn’t see the skunk listed as one of the animals found at the Grand Canyon, Hiebert sent photos and a note to the National Park Service. “It was just walking through the

canyon, totally ignored us and was just digging away in the sand,” said Hiebert, of Moscow, Idaho. “I’m not sure what it was after.” Grand Canyon biologists later confirmed the group’s suspicion that it was a hog-nosed skunk. At first, officials weren’t sure whether the skunk was merely visiting the area, or if they should to add it to the list of about 90 mammals that live in the national park. They decided that by listing it — even as extremely rare — people might be on the lookout for more of the skunks, and that could help biologists determine how prevalent they are in the park. “Obviously it’s in the park and there’s a photograph of it,” Grand Canyon wildlife program manager Greg Holm said. “I guess the question would be, is it going to live out its life here or was it traveling from point A to point B?”

The hog-nosed skunk is just as smelly as the western spotted skunk and the striped skunk, which are also found in the park. But it’s distinguished in appearance by its entirely white back and tail, largely naked snout and long claws. Holm said skunks tend to be solitary animals so it wasn’t strange that Hiebert and the others saw just one. The puzzling thing for biologists was how it crossed the Colorado River, which Holm said tends to be a significant barrier to animal movement because of water temperature, the river’s flow and its size. “Whether or not it crossed, swam across, it certainly could,” he said. “How else would it get there?” The other idea is that the skunk came from southern Nevada, traveling east from the north end of Lake Mead through the Grand Canyon, but “it’s all speculation,” Holm said.

“I try to mix as many colors as I can, but not too much; I try to get away from the standard black and gray. I try not to be super flamboyant, but I definitely don’t want to look like everyone else.” Frederick usually visits Old Navy and the local shop Free Radicals to add pops of color to her wardrobe. Favorite Trend: “I really dig leopard print and I’m really a big fan of 1950s and 1960s retro style. I think the reason I like my style so much is I’m a nursing student and I have to wear scrubs to school every day, so I don’t get to wear a lot of my clothes in general. I try to wear what I can when I can.” Least Favorite Trend: “The super, super saggy pants on guys — not my favorite. Some things look better on some people. The big, big boots don’t look good on me, but they look great on other people.”
