2014LEGISLATURE

Session to debate complex issues by John Tyczkowski news@dailylobo.com @JCTyczkowski

Benjamin Franklin once said that the only certainties in life are death and taxes. An addition to that should probably be legislation. Tuesday marked the beginning of the 2014 New Mexico Legislative Session, which will last until Feb. 20. Over the next month, state lawmakers will meet at the Roundhouse in Santa Fe to debate legislation on topics ranging from gun control to the Lottery Scholarship. Here’s a look at a few bills of interest introduced this first week for both the UNM and Albuquerque communities, as well as all those living in New Mexico. House Bill 44 – Firearm Transfer Act During the 2013 legislative session, Rep. Miguel Garcia, D-Albuquerque, first introduced the Firearm Transfer Act, but it was fraught with problems, being referred to as “overly broad” and “excessively restrictive” in a fiscal impact report. A revised version introduced later in the 2013

session narrowed the bill’s focus to gun shows, and scrapped New Mexico-specific laws in favor of using the federal Brady Act, but still failed to pass. The 2014 version of the bill includes the same language regarding regulating gun show sales and using federal background check standards. However, according to the bill, it introduces a mental health standard which would deny individuals “adjudicated as a mental defective or committed to a mental institution” the right to “receive or possess any firearm or ammunition.” At the same time, the bill states that it provides for the individual to be able to “seek a redetermination of mental condition and restoration of the right to receive or possess a firearm or ammunition.” The Firearms Transfer Act has not yet been introduced into any House committee as of press time. House Bill 145 – Lottery Scholarship Changes Rep. Thomas C. Taylor (R-Farmington) has introduced a bill that seeks to expand Lottery Scholarship eligibility.

Williams takes ASUNM position by Ardee Napolitano news@dailylobo.com @ArdeeTheJourno

For Associated Students of the University of New Mexico Sen. Rachel Williams, the third semester’s the charm. The ASUNM Senate elected Williams as the student government’s president pro-tempore Wednesday night. The president pro-tempore is the third-highest position in the organization after the president and the vice president. Williams, who was reelected for a second senatorial term in November and is now serving her third semester at ASUNM, snagged the position from Sen. Colt Balok during the blind ballot election. Williams said she is excited to work with her fellow senators during this semester. She said she aims to work with the senate to improve the organization’s community outreach. “It’s really exciting to know that the senate has confidence in me to take on a position that has to take these outreach hours that are brand new and to best implement them with this University,” she said. “It’s going to be exciting to take in their passion and their fervor.” Williams, who served as the chair of ASUNM’s Finance Committee last semester, followed in the position after former ASUNM Sen. Tyler Crawley. As pro-tempore, Williams will

act as the head senator and oversee ASUNM’s three committees. She said she aims to work with the committees to improve the visibility of ASUNM. “I want to strengthen the image of ASUNM,” she said. “A lot of people don’t know what ASUNM is and what the senate does. As protempore, I want to work with the committees to know how each one is doing that.” Balok, who also ran for the position, said he congratulates her for her new leadership position. “The senate has the decision and they wanted Rachel as the protempore, so I’m happy she got it,” he said. “She’s going to do a great job with it.” Balok said he will be willing to work with Williams this semester on improving community service projects of ASUNM, as well as on increasing the body’s outreach hours. He said also wants to make the senate more efficient by tightening relationships among senators. And he said he is confident he and Williams and he can continue their work in tandem, he said. “I was her vice chair at the finance committee last year, and we had a pretty good leadership,” he said. “I’m going to work with her to actually do some team-building activities in the senate.” Balok will continue to serve with the Finance Committee this semester.

Groups aid ACA signups by Chloe Henson

assistant-news@dailylobo.com @ChloeHenson5 Organizations on campus are working to help the University community navigate the new health care system. El Centro de la Raza, Footprints Ministry, Inc., Lobos Unidos, Centro Sávila and other organizations hosted a workshop Thursday to help the students and staff understand the Affordable Care Act and register for healthcare plans. The workshop benefited UNM by helping students with a lower income register for health care, said Theresa Gonzales, community program specialist for El Centro de la Raza. “A lot of students, since they’re full-time students, their income isn’t very high,” she said. “Some of them just go to school full time, so it would really benefit them to apply for Medicaid… A lot of students couldn’t have it at the time, and now, they’ll be able to access it.” According to the Medicaid website, the new Medicaid minimum eligibility level under the Affordable Care Act is “133 percent of the federal poverty level… for nearly all Americans under age 65.” Gonzales said the workshop was also intended to educate people in general about the Affordable Care Act. She said educators at the workshop helped participants understand their options so they could register for health insurance. “We saw a lot of folks from (Physical Plant Department) and other contractors who came by, and they had no idea how to enroll,” she said. “A lot of them didn’t have health insurance. One man in particular said, ‘I was just going to pay the penalty because I can’t afford health insurance.’” Those not enrolled in health

care coverage by March 31 will be charged a penalty, according to Healthcare.gov. According to the website, open enrollment for the Health Insurance Marketplace also closes on that date and will not reopen until November. Staff from Centro Sávila, a local treatment organization, were also present to inform people and help them enroll under the Affordable Care Act. According to the Centro Sávila website, the center helps people recover from emotional and psychological distress.

“A lot of them didn’t have health insurance. One man in particular said, ‘I was just going to pay the penalty because I can’t afford health insurance.’” ~Theresa Gonzales community program specialist Edith Garcia, a member of Centro Sávila, said she and other individuals from the treatment center exchanged contact information with people in order to help them enroll in health insurance at a scheduled time. “We provided our contact information, and we asked them to fill out a ‘pledge to enroll’ card, which is them pledging that they’re interested in enrolling in healthcare,” she said. “So we get their contact information, call them, set up a time that’s more convenient for them.”

Gonzales said 84 people signed in to get information and 32 pledged to sign up for health care plans. Other organizations also participated in helping students understand the act. Johny Herrera, a student mentor for Lobos Unidos, said the mentors provided bilingual support for students at the workshop. He said that Lobos Unidos is a new mentoring group under El Centro intended to help increase graduation rates, especially for students from rural areas of New Mexico. “The Lobos Unidos mentors were there to help support our students at El Centro de la Raza,” he said. “They were helping students get more information in English or Spanish. We were letting them know about the deadline of March 31 and how to enroll in the Affordable Care Act.” Gonzales said there may be another similar health care event in February that may include more community organizations. “We would want to partner with Student Health and Counseling and our community partners to make it more of a larger event where we can capture a wider campus community,” she said. Individuals who missed the latest workshop can still get help enrolling before the deadline, Garcia said. Students can also contact SHAC to get in touch with health care navigators.

FDA considering food label change by Mary Clare Jalonick The Associated Press

WASHINGTON — Those nutrition labels on the back of food packages may soon become easier to read. The Food and Drug Administration says knowledge about nutrition has evolved over the last 20 years, and the labels need to reflect that. As the agency considers revisions, nutritionists and other health experts have their own wish list of desired changes. The number of calories should be more prominent, they say, and the amount of added sugar and percentage of whole wheat in the food should be included. They also want more clarity on how serving sizes are defined. “There’s a feeling that nutrition labels haven’t been as effective as they should be,” says Michael Jacobson of the Center for Science in the Public Interest. “When you look at the label, there are roughly two dozen numbers of substances that people aren’t intuitively familiar with.” For example, he says, most of the nutrients are listed in grams, the metric system’s basic unit of mass. Jacobson says people don’t really understand what a gram is. Michael Taylor, the FDA’s deputy commissioner for foods, says that 20 years ago “there was a big focus on fat, and fat undifferentiated.” Since then, health providers have focused more on calories and warned people away from saturated and trans fats more than all fats. Trans fats were separated out on the label in 2006. The nutrition facts label “is now 20 years old, the food environment has changed and our dietary guidance has changed,” says Taylor, who was at the agency in the early 1990s when the FDA first introduced the label at the behest of Congress. “It’s important to keep this updated so what is iconic doesn’t become a relic.” The FDA has sent guidelines for the new labels to the White House, but Taylor would not estimate when they might be released. The FDA has been working on the issue for a decade, he said. There is evidence that more people are reading the labels in recent years. According to an Agriculture Department study released this

month, a greater percentage of adults reported using the nutrition facts panel and other claims on food packages “always or most of the time” in 2009 and 2010 compared with two years earlier. The USDA study said 42 percent of working adults used the panel always or most of the time in 2009 and 2010, up from 34 percent. Older adults used it 57 percent of the time during that period, up from 51 percent. One expected change in the label is to make the calorie listing more prominent, and Regina Hildwine of the Grocery Manufacturers Association said that could be useful to consumers. Her group represents the nation’s largest food companies. Hildwine said FDA also has suggested that it may be appropriate to remove the “calories from fat” declaration on the label. It’s not yet clear what other changes the FDA could decide on. Nutrition advocates are hoping the agency adds a line for sugars and syrups that are not naturally occurring in foods and drinks and are added when they are processed or prepared. Right now, some sugars are listed separately among the ingredients and some are not. It may be difficult for the FDA to figure out how to calculate added sugars, however. Food manufacturers are adding naturally occurring sugars to their products so they can label them as natural — but the nutrition content is no different. Other suggestions from health advocates: — Add the percentage of whole wheat to the label. Many manufacturers will label products “whole wheat” when there is really only a small percentage of it in the food. — Clearer measurements. Jacobson of CSPI and others have suggested that the FDA use teaspoons, as well as grams, for added sugars, since consumers can envision a teaspoon. — Serving sizes that make sense. There’s no easy answer, but health experts say that single-size servings that are clearly meant to be eaten in one sitting will often list two or three servings on the label, making the calorie and other nutrient information deceptive. FDA said last year that it may add another column to the labels, listing nutrition information per serving and

can see them more easily. The FDA said several years ago it would issue guidelines for front of pack labeling, but later said it would hold off to see whether the industry could create its own labels. Tracy Fox, a Washingtonbased nutrition consultant, says

clearer information is needed to balance the billions of dollars a year that the food industry spends on food marketing. “There’s a lot of information there, it’s messy,” she says. “There may be a way to call out certain things and put them in context.”

Letter

Does my opinion or vote even count? Editor, This letter is in response to your article, “El Centro Leader Faces Contention,” in the Daily Lobo’s Jan. 13 issue. Being an active participant at the candidate forums, it is important that misconceptions be put to rest. The contention referred to in this article actually has little to do with El Centro or its new director. In reality, students have become accustomed to this same old bait and switch. The UNM Administration solicits the help of students, making it appear that we have a say, or a voice, in who is hired for key student advocate positions. Idealistic or naive students, those who are taught theories of democracy at UNM, believe them to be true, and take the administrative bait. Sure, we will attend the open forums to voice our needs and wants. Sure, we will fill out evaluation forms on candidates, trust you to be objective and believe you will choose the candidate we endorse. In comes the switch where we discover that students have little or no say in the selection of these individuals. I ask you, should a studentcentered director position be determined by any other than the students? We all know what comes next. We are told that proper policies and procedures were followed and that human resources could not find cause for complaint. However, at a university that prides itself on cutting-edge research and empirical evidence, I implore the administrators of Student Affairs to show us the numbers. If you are confident in the validity of your hiring processes, do publish the results of these student evaluations, which have seemingly guided your decisions. Tell us what percentage of your hiring decision was based on our evaluations, the committee’s feedback and your own. Or is this a secret formula that only administrators are made privy to? Convince us that your hiring choices are true representation of our voices and back this up with authentic data and transparency. While I do not know the individuals who wrote that brave letter regarding the faulty El Centro hiring process, I echo their concerns regarding the protocol that was followed. I attended over half of the student and community forums for the El Centro director search and quickly noticed what most would regard as glaring irregularities. Evaluation forms were strewn across tables, so students could complete either one or 50 evaluations supporting or negating a candidate. Students could drop off their evaluations at Student Affairs or give them to key individuals for safekeeping. The first day I was at a forum, I decided to hand my evaluation to one individual but became suspicious when my form was stuffed into their large bag haphazardly, along with their personal affects. Of course, this is only one example of infractions that likely occurred throughout this process. Students, if you want your opinion to count, you need to fight for democracy the old-fashioned way — through student-led activism and action. Sarah L. Santillanes, Ph.D. SAGE Adjunct Faculty, Central New Mexico Community College

The Peer Review Genetically modified food issue ain’t black and white

by Veena Patel

When asked about collaborating on music with other rappers, hip hop artist B.o.B. asks, “Would you rather have genetically modified (flavor)-less strawberries be as big as your head but ain’t got no flavor in it, or would you want a real piece of fruit? The organic things… stick around the longest because they have the most substance.” Proponents of organic food would agree, but keepin’ it real in agriculture is not so easy. Pests, disease and drought present serious obstacles to farmers and communities around the world, calling for the development of more efficient methods of agriculture. Here in New Mexico, our beloved chile pepper has seen better days. Disease and cheap foreign competition have led to tough growing seasons throughout the past 20 years. Chile acreage decreased by almost 30 percent in 2010, resulting in a $15.8 million loss in pepper value. Some say the answer to our state’s chile woes lies in genetically modified plants. Scientists at NMSU’s Chile Pepper Institute are tackling this issue by researching how to improve the chile pepper genome. Institute director Dr. Paul Bosland claims that understanding the pepper’s genetic material opens “the possibilities of increasing disease resistance, enhancing flavor, and crop yield.” However, Bosland’s — as well as other global efforts — are being met with intense opposition from anti-gm activists who claim that genetic modification presents health and economic risks. These efforts are often well-intentioned but highly misinformed. Here, I have outlined some of the controversies surrounding genetically modified foods and presented the scientific consensus on the state of genetic engineering. Our shelves are already stocked with products that use genetically modified crops — from soybeans to papayas. But the chile pepper in particular has caused such controversy because it is ingrained in our state’s identity. It is not just another anonymous ingredient, it is a staple of our cuisine and culture. So when we get all fired up over the future of chile, it is important to understand the facts. Myth: GM food is ‘unnatural’ Genetic modification is shrouded in misconceptions of weird, glow-in-the-dark cats and cabbages infused with scorpion poison.

In reality, plant genetic modification is simply the removal or addition of genetic material. These genetic changes will produce a plant that looks, tastes or behaves differently. But why mess with nature when it works just fine on its own? Actually, humans have been genetically modifying crops since the dawn of agriculture. Through selectively breeding plants with certain beneficial traits, our crops have evolved to look very different than their ancestors. Furthermore, GM food can help combat malnutrition crises worldwide. Golden rice includes corn and bacteria genes that produce a lot of beta-carotene. One bowl alone provides 60 percent of the recommended daily Vitamin A intake. The planned distribution of Golden rice in the Philippines is aimed at helping alleviate blindness from Vitamin A deficiency, which kills hundreds of thousands of children annually. Myth: GM food is harmful to your health No, it is not. There is no scientific evidence supporting documented negative health consequences of eating any GM food. Scientific and governmental organizations including the American Medical Association and the British Royal Society of Medicine have reached the consensus that GM food poses no greater health risks than non-GM food. But how can we be confident that there are no unintended effects of messing with a plant’s genes? The short answer is that we cannot be sure, but we are also unsure of the effects of eating non-GM food. Inserting genes with known functions is actually easier for us to control than the random genetic mutations and crossbreeding occurring in non-GM crops. Sometimes even natural breeding produces toxic varieties of plants. Furthermore, inserting natural anti-pest genes can reduce chemical pesticide use in crops. Myth: GM foods always hurt local farmers A major concern of anti-GM organizations — like Greenpeace — is the economic toll that commercialized GM crops could take on farmers in developing countries. Biotechnology giants, namely the Missouri-based Monsanto Company, have long been criticized for dominating the global agriculture market. Seeds developed by Monsanto are pesticide-resistant,

providing farmers who use them with a major advantage. However, Monsanto has patented these seeds and prevented them from being able to replicate, forcing farmers to buy the seeds annually from the company. While concerns over the monopolization of agriculture should not go unheard, they do not negate the enormous potential of genetic engineering. What is important moving forward is global policy that facilitates the fair use of these technologies. For example, the NMSU GM chile effort is not geared towards profits, but towards assisting local farmers struggling to grow their crops. Bosland cites the annual growers conference and teaching gardens available to NM growers through the Chile Pepper Institute. The beta-carotene enriched Golden rice is developed by the non-profit International Rice Research Institute. The rice is adapted from local varieties and intended for free distribution to farmers in the Philippines. But anti-GM activists have not ceased even without empirical support for the dangers of GM food or the persecution of local farmers. In early August, protesters backed by international extremist groups destroyed 1,000 square meters of golden rice on trial in the Philippines. These acts of vandalism lead scientists to worry about how misconceptions may halt the development of crucial GM technologies. Dr. Kevin Folta of the University of Florida thinks that GM opponents have common goals, but scientists... “understand (GM technology) inside and out so… it does not scare us”. Genetically modified foods have the unprecedented capacity to feed higher-quality food to more people with reduced impact on the environment. In New Mexico, chile research affirms our pride in the pepper as we work to ensure its success for generations to come.

Peace in S. Sudan fragile

Friday, January 24, 2014/ Page 5 $2.50 Coronas $2.50 Landsharks $3 Cuervo

by Elias Meseret and Jason Straziuso The Associated Press

ADDIS ABABA, Ethiopia — South Sudan’s government and rebels signed a cease-fire deal Thursday that leaders hope will put a pause to five weeks of warfare that has killed thousands of soldiers and civilians. The peace deal represents the first real progress since political friction turned violent Dec. 15, fueling countrywide battles with ethnic overtones. But questions were immediately raised about whether all fighters in South Sudan would abide by the agreement, and how long others would follow it. The military spokesman for South Sudan cautioned that a group of rebel fighters from the former vice president’s Nuer ethnic group — thousands of armed youths known as the “White Army” — may not want peace. “Riek Machar has been using that force to fight the SPLA, so we have to see what will happen,” said Col. Philip Aguer, using the acronym for South Sudan’s military. “War is not good for anybody, especially war fought for power of a political position,” Aguer continued. “Civilians, innocents are dying, so it is good for the people of South Sudan to have peace.” Nhail Deng Nhail, the head of South Sudan’s negotiating team, said his side is worried that since many on the rebel side are civilians who took up arms, “it may become difficult to follow the cease-fire since they are not militarily disciplined.” President Barack Obama welcomed the deal — technically called a cessation of hostilities — and described it as a “first critical step toward building a lasting peace.”

Rover still going and going by Alicia Chang

The Associated Press

A decade after landing on Mars, the rover Opportunity is still chugging along. Sure, it has some wear and tear. One of its six wheels and two instruments stopped working long ago. It has an arthritic joint. Its flash memory occasionally suffers a senior moment. But these problems are considered minor for a journey that was supposed to be just a threemonth adventure. “No one ever expected this — that after 10 years a Mars exploration rover would continue to operate and operate productively,” project manager John Callas said Thursday. NASA has scrutinized Earth’s planetary neighbor for decades, starting with quick flybys and later with orbiters, landers and rovers. Opportunity touched down on Jan. 24, 2004 — several weeks after its twin Spirit. Both rovers outlasted their warranty by years, but Spirit

stopped phoning home in 2010 after getting stuck in sand. Meanwhile, Opportunity has logged 24 miles crater-hopping. The solar-powered NASA rover is now in a sunny spot on the rim of Endeavour Crater where it is spending its sixth winter poking into rocks and dirt. Its power levels have unexpectedly improved. A recent “selfie” showed dust on its solar panels, which was later wiped away by blowing winds. Early discoveries by the two rovers pointed to a planet that was once tropical and moist. However, the signs of water suggested an acidic environment that would have been too harsh for microbes. More recently, Opportunity uncovered geologic evidence of water at Endeavour Crater that is more suited for drinking — a boon for scientists searching for extraterrestrial places where primitive life could have thrived. The crater is the largest of five craters examined by Opportunity. A new study published by the journal Science Friday — on Opportunity’s 10th anniversary — determined the rocks from the crater are the oldest yet — about 4 billion years old. The rocks interacted with water during a time when environmental conditions were favorable for microscopic organisms. “This is really a neat area,” said deputy project scientist Ray Arvidson of Washington University in St. Louis.

In 2012, Opportunity was joined on Mars by Curiosity, which is currently rolling across bumpy terrain toward a mountain. With snazzy tools like a laser, Curiosity quickly became the world’s favorite rover. Opportunity snatched some attention back earlier this month when it discovered a rock shaped like a jelly doughnut that suddenly appeared in its field of view, probably after its wheel kicked it up. Scientists said it’s unlike any rock they’ve seen on Mars before. It costs about $14 million a year to maintain Opportunity. NASA periodically reviews missions that have been extended to decide where to invest scarce dollars. The next decision is expected this year for Opportunity and other extended missions — including Cassini at Saturn and Messenger at Mercury. “From all the missions that we have, they’re very productive and it would be a shame not to have enough to afford the continuation of those missions,” said Michael Meyer of NASA headquarters. In several months, Opportunity will decamp from its winter haven and head south to what scientists are calling the mother lode — a clay-rich spot that should yield more discoveries. “As long as the rover keeps going, we’ll keep going,” said chief scientist Steve Squyres of Cornell University.

Road game losses are adding up by Liam Cary-Eaves sports@dailylobo.com @LiamCE

The road woes continued for the New Mexico women’s basketball team Wednesday night at Boise State. Once again turnovers plagued the Lobos as they had 16 in a 74-60 loss against the Broncos at Taco Bell Arena. UNM has yet to win a regular season road game. Head coach Yvonne Sanchez said the team still has some kinks to work out defensively and with ball protection as well with shooting. “They were 10 of 19 from the three,” Sanchez said in an article on golobos.com. “That’s why we have to guard better. We are not a 3-point shooting team.  It’s OK if you’re not a 3-point shooting team, but you have to find other areas (to score).” The Lobos (7-10, 2-4 Mountain West) were just 1 for 6 from beyond the arc and were unable to keep pace with Boise State (9-8, 4-2 MW). Despite their lack of 3-point shooting, redshirt junior guard Antiesha Brown had no problem scoring as she had the team high 18 points on 8 of 17 shots. Redshirt senior forward Deeva Vaughn was the only other player to score in double digits as she put up 13 points in the loss. Redshirt senior guard Sara Halasz was within spitting distance of a double-double, scoring eight points along with eight rebounds. Sanchez said she was concerned with the amount of turnovers that her crew committed, which is an area that has been a struggle all season. “We had 16 turnovers and nine assists. That’s awful,” Sanchez said. “But we went to the line 22 times and I’m proud of my kids for that. We had some positives.” UNM was 14 of 22 from the charity stripe while the Broncos were only eight of 15 from the free throw line. Sanchez said that the previous games losses have all been difficult. “It’s a tough loss and they are all tough losses,” Sanchez said. “It’s frustrating for everybody.”

Aaron Sweet/@AaronCSweet / Daily Lobo UNM Redshirt senior forward Deeva Vaughn goes up for two against Fresno State defenders last Saturday at the Pit. UNM lost to Fresno State 75-73. UNM dropped to 7-10 on the season and is only 2-4 in conference play. The Lobos’ next test will be Colorado State Rams at home on Saturday at 6 p.m. CSU (13-4) is tied atop the MW with UNLV, each having a record of 5-1 in conference. The Rams have won nine of their last 10 games with their only loss coming at Fresno State, a 60-50 decision. CSU has four players who average double digits — in forward Sam Martin (12.1), guard Caitlin Duffey (12.0), forward Elin Gustavsson (10.4) and guard AJ Newton. CSU beat UNM earlier in the year in Fort Collins 62-50 in the Lobos’ conference opener. However, UNM has performed well against CSU in the past with a 39-30 overall record against the Rams.

UNLV loss won’t dim Lobo morale by J.R. Oppenheim

asssistantsports@dailylobo.com @JROppenheim Men’s basketball coach Craig Neal backtracked a bit when he said his team lost a competitive edge in the Jan. 15 home loss to UNLV, a game where his New Mexico squad played itself into an early hole too deep to rally back from. “Maybe I shouldn’t say they lost it,” Neal said Tuesday night, following back-to-back wins against Fresno State and Boise State. “I just think they didn’t come out with the excitement and really, really pushing and really playing from the start of the game.” The UNLV game remains the only blemish on UNM’s Mountain West schedule through the first six games. The Lobos found themselves down by 16 points midway through the opening half after surrendering a 20-4 run over six minutes. The Lobos (15-4, 5-1 MW) made sure that was not an issue in their next two games, holding an 18-point lead at one point in the first half against Fresno State and scoring 12 of the first 16 points against Boise State. “There definitely is a better mind-set on the defensive end, understanding that we’re not going to outscore opponents just based on our offensive abilities,” forward Cameron Bairstow said Tuesday. Neal addressed the slow starts by talking to his guys about it and breaking it down on game tape, he said. He praised his team for opening strong against Boise State, adding the Broncos did not

have an answer for the Lobos. “I have guys that have been winners since they’ve been here, but I wanted them to see that you’ve got to keep pushing and keep pushing, and they’ve done that our last two games,” Neal said. “I’m very proud of them.” New Mexico, the preseason favorite to win the conference, remains one game behind league leader and No. 7-ranked San Diego State. The Lobos and Nevada hold identical 5-1 records, but the Lobos sit in the second place ahead of the Wolf Pack (10-9) based on overall record. UNM has yet to play either SDSU or Nevada but will play each team twice before the conference tournament in midMarch. With the new 11-team conference lineup and modified schedule, the Lobos take on every team twice except Fresno State and Air Force. On Saturday, UNM takes on Colorado State for the second time this season. The Lobos opened conference play against the Rams, capturing an 80-73 victory at The Pit on Jan. 4. Bairstow tallied 29 points and guard Kendall Williams added 22 in that game. Williams had the best offensive output of his career the last time UNM traveled to Fort Collins, Colo., when he dropped 46 points on CSU. The performance led to a 91-82 Lobo victory and helped cement Williams as the 2012-13 Mountain West player of the year. “It’s always tough to play

there,” Neal said. “We were fortunate enough to win there last year. They play a hard-nosed defense and it’ll be another challenge for us that we’re looking forward to.” J.J. Avila and Daniel Bejarano lead Colorado State’s offense with scoring averages of 18.9 and 16.2 points per game, respectively. As a team the Rams (12-7, 3-3 MW) score 75.8 per game and give up 69 per game. CSU has played only five games away from Moby Arena, holding an 11-3 home record this season.

UNM to host championships by Kyle Tomasi

sports@dailylobo.com @KyTo22

Tough, elite and top: those are the adjectives that describe what kind of competition the New Mexico men’s and women’s track and field teams will be facing this weekend. There will be six top-25 teams on the men’s side and four top-25 teams on the women’s side when UNM hosts the Cherry and Silver Invitational at the Albuquerque Convention Center. “The level of competition goes up tenfold,” UNM head coach Joe Franklin said in a release on golobos.com. “If you’re not ready to compete, you’re going to get blown off the track.” Three of the schools coming to the invitational have both men’s and women’s teams ranked in the top 25: Georgia (No. 13 men, No. 5 women), the University of Texas (No. 1 women, No. 15 men) and Florida State University (No. 7 men, No. 19 women). FSU in particular will bring three athletes from its National Championship football team, who beat Auburn 34-31 in the BCS National Championship game on January 6. The other schools that have a men’s or women’s team ranked are Arizona (No. 17 men), Arkansas (No. 7 women), Stanford (No. 20 men) and the University of Texas at El Paso (No. 22 men). Other big name schools include Clemson, South Carolina and Southern California. Both Lobo men’s and the women’s teams lost a key runner from last year’s squads, Floyd Ross

and Josephine Moultrie. Ross was First-Team Indoor All-American in 2012 and 2013. Franklin said that there are three runners who could have a breakout year on the men’s side including Ridge Jones, a UNM football player who is ranked first in the Mountain West in the 60-meter dash, Carlos Wiggins, a wide receiver for the UNM football team, and Adam Bitchell, who is ranked first in the NCAA in the 5-kilometer. As for the women, Franklin said Yeshemabet Turner, who finished third in the long jump last weekend at the Lobo Collegiate Invitational, could have a big season ahead of her. “We have great individuals,” Franklin said. “We have well-rounded people.” For the first time in school history, UNM will host the Indoor NCAA Championships and the USA Championships in the same year. “It’s a year that’s essentially unprecedented in the University of New Mexico and the state of New Mexico being that we’re hosting the NCAA Championships and the USA Championships in the same year,” Franklin said. “The expectations are to make sure that you get enough people to those competitions.” This is the first year that UNM will be able to compete in the USA Championships due to the Mountain West championships being a week before the competition in years past. The NCAA Championships will be heldMarch14and15attheConvention Center in Downtown Albuquerque and the USA Championships will be held Feb. 21-23.
