The Independent Student Voice of UNM since 1895

Lawmakers start work on Lottery Scholarship by John Tyczkowski and Megan Underwood

UNM students found that when they attended Tuesday’s legislative session, there was very little mention of UNM on what was supposed to be UNM Day, and very little change in topics discussed from previous years. For the second year in a row, students planned to lobby for causes such as Lottery Scholarship solvency, efforts to keep UNM graduates in state and capital outlay projects involving the renovation of University facilities. Students broke into groups to speak one-onone with legislators. But due to the morning roll call of the House and Senate, which required representatives and senators to be present on the floor, many student groups were unable to find legislators to talk to. One group of students managed to talk to Rep. Miguel P. Garcia (D-Albuquerque), a UNM alumnus, about Lottery Scholarship solvency. The scholarship’s funds are expected to dry up by July of this year. “It’s definitely a priority, it’s very integral to pursuing a degree,” Garcia said. “Without it, a lot of kids wouldn’t be able to graduate from college or even go to college.” Senate Majority Whip Timothy Keller (D-Albuquerque), a major proponent of Lottery Scholarship solvency, also weighed in on the issue, saying that legislators are working to draft a bill addressing the issue. Keller said that both parties’ majority leaders are looking to freeze the amount a student receives from the scholarship each year. “Let’s say that when you started, the lottery gave you $10,000. The state would continue to give you $10,000 each year that you’re in school,” he said. “Right now the $10,000 actually changes. So if tuition goes up, then we pay you $12,000, for example. So by the time you graduate, we’re paying you $15,000 because of tuition increases.” Keller said this freeze will keep the scholarship from running out and make universities think twice before instituting tuition hikes. “We think that the lottery is sometimes taken advantage of by universities because it’s basically easy money,” he said. “They can have a tuition increase and the lottery will pay for it.” On Tuesday evening, Representative James White (R-Albuquerque) introduced House Bill 309, also known as the Lottery Scholarship Solvency Program, into the House Education Committee. A hearing date had not been set as of press time. The bill would make significant changes to the Lottery Scholarship structure, effective July 2013, requiring the scholarship maintain a balance of $10 million at all times, as well as mandating additional requirements. In addition, the bill would reduce the amount of time a student has to receive his or her degree while receiving scholarship money from eight semesters to seven. The new guidelines would apply to students who have completed five semesters or fewer as of fall 2013. In addition, the bill would raise the minimum number of credits a student would have to have in order to be eligible for the scholarship from 12 to 15. The bill also contains additional guidelines for students pursuing associate’s degrees and professional certification programs at community colleges. Students who have received scholarship money for two or fewer semesters as of fall 2014 would be eligible for only three more semesters of money while working toward their associate’s degree or toward a transfer to a four-year college. The 15 credits per semester guideline would also apply to these students. For more photos from UNM Day, visit

Aaron Sweet / Daily Lobo UNM students march through the snow to the Capitol Building in Santa Fe for UNM Day to meet face-to-face with their representatives and lobby for their University. Though the most important topic of the day was Lottery Scholarship solvency, other topics included capital outlay and providing incentives for students to work in-state after graduation.

Student creates LGBT program by Antonio Sanchez

UNM student Alray Nelson said an incident of school bullying while he was a junior at Ganado Middle School in Arizona changed his life. “My junior year in high school was the first time that someone called me a fag and I remember during that time, nothing was done, there were no resources. I was questioning myself and it was hard,” Nelson said. “Suicide was an option for me at that time because no one would listen to me.” Nelson, now a senior at UNM, is the founder of We Are One, a nonprofit organization that aims to create safe zone programs to promote a friendlier environment for lesbian, gay, bisexual and transsexual (LGBT) students in schools throughout the Navajo Nation in Utah, Arizona and New Mexico. Nelson said he is pushing for more school safe zones because there are no school policies for bullying in Navajo Nation schools. He said with a rise in teenage suicides during the past few years, safety zone programs are needed. “I have seen an increase in suicides in Navajo Nation. I’ll never know if any of those students were LGBT or not, we will never know that,” he said. “All that we know from here is that regardless of someone’s sexual identity or sexual orientation, a life is a life.” Nelson’s interest in starting We Are One began after he worked as a student intern for U.S. Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid in Washington D.C. in spring 2012. He also spent the semester studying at George Washington University, and while he was

there he applied and joined the Young People For (YPF) fellowship, which encourages members to get involved with their community in progressive movements. Nelson said that after speaking to a few members of the fellowship in April, he was able to start his nonprofit organization. Nelson is the only New Mexican student who is a member of the national organization. Nelson returned to New Mexico after spending last week in the nation’s capital to promote his organization at the 2013 YPF National Summit. He was supposed to meet President Obama, but because the president was too busy, Nel-

son presented his organization to representatives Obama sent. Nelson met with his personal mentor Dolores Huerta, who is a recipient of the Medal of Freedom, and the White House Associate Director of the Office of Public Engagement Ronnie Cho. Nelson said he is working with high school principals in Arizona, Utah and New Mexico to implement the We Are One program. Nelson said he is proud that Ganado High School will be the first to implement his program. “It means no student will have to question

Nelson had the chance to travel to Washington to promote his program on a national scale.

themselves and ask ‘Am I alone?’ No student would have to feel unsafe, and all students at my school will know that they have an ally,” he said. “Speaking to a teacher and having them becoming an ally, and having a rainbow sticker on their door or a rainbow flag in their classroom sends a huge symbol for the school, it will impact so many lives and that’s what we’re doing.” YPF Program Organizer William Dennis said Nelson’s work with YPF and We Are One brings to life a Navajo Nation community that has been underrepresented. “With him standing up for the LGBT community and really wanting to educate people who may have never had the opportunity to talk about LGBT issues … the actual work he’s doing in his community is really amazing and will have a great impact,” Dennis said.

He wanted to get in those pants UNMPD responded to a call about an unknown suspect rummaging through a pair of pants in an office at the UNM natatorium on Jan. 15. According to the report, the owner of the pants’ office mate spotted the suspect. The witness confronted the suspect, who said he was looking for a professor. UNMPD confirmed through the National Crime Information Center that the suspect gave the witness false identification information. When the owner of the pants returned to his office he found nothing missing from his pants.

According to the UNMPD report, a man set off the alarm when he left the library, then dropped his backpack and fled. Minutes later, he returned. While he was gone, a security guard opened the backpack and found a computer that was reportedly worth $2,000 in it. The computer was not damaged, except for the property tag having been removed.

The officer instructed everyone but the two residents to check out with security and leave. The residents told police they had “smoked a couple of joints.” The officer reported that he saw “bits of stems and leaves of green vegetable material” on the counter, as well as a pipe “that appeared to be consistent with those that my training and experience have shown to be commonly used to smoke marijuana.” Both the vegetable material and the pipe were seized, and the officer wrote the residents criminal nontraffic citations. There was no further information at the time of the report.

Judge hears ‘Sister Wives’ suit

Wednesday, January 30, 2013/ Page 3

by Paul Foy

The Associated Press SALT LAKE CITY — A federal judge heard arguments on whether Utah can prohibit plural marriage but issued no immediate ruling in a lawsuit by the stars of the reality show “Sister Wives.” Kody Brown and his four wives claim the law is unconstitutional. The family fled Utah for Las Vegas last year under the threat of prosecution. They did not attend the Jan. 17 hearing in Salt Lake City, leaving arguments to a constitutional law professor. “The Browns wanted to show people that a plural family is not a monstrosity,” said Jonathan Turley of The George Washington University. “They don’t commit collateral problems.” Turley said the Browns’ only sin was opening their family to the TLC hit series, which drew the attention of Utah authorities. “The state is saying if you didn’t do this TV show, you wouldn’t have a problem,” he said. “They have a right to free speech and are being prosecuted for it.” The hearing dealt with the legalities of due process and freedom of association. U.S. District Judge Clark Waddoups peppered a state lawyer on why he shouldn’t throw out Utah’s bigamy law. It’s stricter than the laws in 49 other states — most of them prohibit people from having multiple marriage licenses. Utah makes it illegal to even purport to be married to multiple partners or live together. What if Kody Brown kept separate households for each wife, or was just having affairs, the judge asked. “That would not be polygamy,” said Assistant Utah Attorney General Jerrold Jensen. Yet Jensen argued Utah’s unique history of polygamy for more than 100 years has made victims of thousands of girls forced to marry as young as 13, and caused rampant child abuse, with boys “kicked out on the street” to reduce competition for older men seeking multiple brides. He

Waddoups said the Browns’ 17 children are irrelevant to the case, and Turley argued that sex and child abuse was just as common in monogamous families. Waddoups challenged Jensen on whether Utah was cracking down on a religion. Most polygamists in the state call themselves fundamentalist Mormons, although The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints renounced polygamy more than a century ago. “Every state in the nation has these laws — and not every state has Mormon polygamists,” replied Jensen, who argued that big-

amy was not merely adultery. “I’ll tell you what makes it different — the harm to women and children coming out of a polygamous relationship. We have a history of it in Utah — stories in the thousands.” Turley said Utah has to prove the harm of polygamy, not assert general statements. He argued the exile of young boys was a myth and that Utah was trying to enforce morality. “We’re asking for what Justice Brandeis called the most important constitutional right, the right to be left alone,” Turley said, referring to Louis Brandeis, who served on the U.S. Supreme Court from 1916 to 1939.

The Independent Student Voice of UNM since 1895

Letters Arguing without facts is like shooting blanks Editor’s note: This is in response to the letter “Don’t bring your sword of justice to a gun fight,” published in Tuesday’s Daily Lobo. In his letter, Patrick Gallagher criticized a column by Jason Darensburg urging stricter gun control. Gallagher criticized what he perceived to be the columnist’s left-wing agenda. Editor, I am appalled at the biased and unprofessional nature of the letter posted by Patrick Gallagher. He tosses out “liberal” as an insult, even jokes about how justice won’t be able to touch him, because he can just shoot it. “I don’t care to go into too many details regarding my gripes with this column,” he said. That’s because he hasn’t done any factual research to back up his argument. In fact, he has shown no proof to back up any of the claims he’s made. And what claims has he made, other than “liberal” being a bad word? At least Darensburg has all the deaths caused by guns in America to back up his claim; where’s your evidence, Gallagher? All you do is insult Darensburg and call him names, like a 7-year-old bully. I love when stupid conservatives try to act like they’re smart, because it just shows how immature they really are, and how much they don’t care about other people. Isn’t that right, Gallagher? You’d think holding onto a hunk of metal used only to kill things, which in turn will allow people who aren’t supposed to have them to have them, is more important than preventing even one mass shooting? Why don’t you go up to the parents of students at Sandy Hook Elementary School with your guns and say, “Sorry folks, but these guns are more important to me than saving the lives of children.” But with “people” like Gallagher, as long as it doesn’t affect him, it’s not his problem, right?

Co-op instills sense of community, comfort Editor,

This is the best part of my day: walking into La Montañita Co-op. Whether it’s here on campus or at the other locations around town, I know that I will be greeted by warm smiles and some truly wonderful discoveries. When you enter, it’s all about good food and good people. Ever since I was a little boy accompanied by my parents, an overwhelming sense of joy has filled my spirit, and quite frankly, filled my stomach, every time I would enter La Montañita Co-op. Where else can you take a trip through delicacies and nutritious treats spanning the globe, from Peru, Ecuador, and all across our local New Mexico farms in less than five minutes? I thought maybe it was all the different people, the kaleidoscope of colors, or the different smells from the fresh produce that changed me; but now that I am a little bit older I know what you are a part of when you step inside La Montañita Co-op: community.

Readers responded online to the column “A nation of Honey Boo Boo fans shouldn’t own guns,” published in Thursday’s Daily Lobo. In his column, Jason Stafford outlined the differences between American culture today and how it was when the Second Amendment was created. He uses this progression to argue that not everyone in America should be allowed to own a gun. by “JD” “Ha. There is actually little to no intellectual honesty, sorry intellectual ability, here at all. It is the typical mindless left mantra beginning with the premise “I’m against anything that is supported by the right,” then pick and choose very poorly researched opinions and pretend they are facts to support your position. Jason doesn’t really understand any American concepts, or that the garbage he speaks of is completely inconsistent. For example, these three statements are about as poorly researched as it gets, and are essentially equivalent in their absurdity: 1) “a nation full of right-thinking Americans who also watch Honey Boo Boo.” 2) The paragraph about armed guards is pretty laughable at how contradictory it is. I don’t think he’s smart enough to realize it. He essentially says that armed guards don’t prevent everything, but then concedes they prevent a lot of things. Then he turns into a psychologist and tells us having an armed guard would just make a killer happier for being able to kill another person. So what’s your point dude? Armed guards and police are used to prevent crime, and all of the latest massacres were in gun-free zones, so your point just sucks. 3) Last, and the saddest point is on the Founding Fathers, and I don’t blame Jason for this one, I’ve read and heard it before: that the Founding Fathers are outdated and shouldn’t necessarily be listened to because of slave ownership, etc. I wonder if

Jason has ever tried to understand what the Constitution is all about, if he can see the correlations between the First and Second Amendments or if he just regurgitates those who would like to remove the entire document, those who do actually understand what it means and don’t like it. I would assume that he just doesn’t really understand it and only dislikes “Republicans” and takes it from there. Anyway, Jason is an adult, and I am trying to help him in telling him that he is making himself look like an ignorant partisan. Please, don’t make an ass of yourself Jason, maybe just stick to painting pictures, or doing something a little more playful, maybe make some music, whatever you like to do. Leave the thinking to the adults.”

who is totally ignorant on the topic disgusts me. Thanks.”

by “Brad” “Quote: ‘The majority of the slobs I see with guns couldn’t insurrect their way out of a paper sack with a gun in each hand and a cannon firing from their a**hole.’ This statement says much more about the quality of persons the author sees (Where? Television? Slobville? Liberal Fantasy Land?) than it does about the reality of the millions of lawful and decent gun owners in this country. I suggest the author attend at least one firearms training class or sporting event before posing as an authority on firearms.”

by “Gaia” “So you’re saying that just because people watch trucks skid off the ice or Honey Boo Boo, nobody is allowed to own guns? Do you have any idea how completely stupid that is? Just because some people watch television or wear clothes you don’t approve of does not mean that they should have their Second Amendment rights taken away. I wear a lot of black simply because I hear it suits me. I like my leather pants and knee high boots. That doesn’t mean I’m going to shoot some people just because life got a little tough. Grow up and accept the fact that people get to be individuals today. Nobody will bow down to your opinion because, newsflash princess priss, you are not so precious that people will take you seriously. So yes, go and educate yourself and learn a little tolerance. And then maybe, maybe you can consider writing another article for a paper. But until then, go away.”

by “CodyA” “Jason, have you ever owned or shot a gun? Have you ever taken a firearms safety course? Do you even know the simple mechanics of a firearm? By the language used in this article, I can safely assume the answer to all these questions is no. Please either educate yourself, or f*** off and debate about something of which you have at least a tiny bit of knowledge. I’m all for a civil debate, but debating with someone

by “That Guy” “So your point is that we can’t have civil discourse on this topic because of all of the name calling, while at the same time namecalling those who don’t buy into your statist mentality? Ad verecundiam much? You know, Jason, I’m a little tired of going through my original source documents, written by the men you just pillared, every other week to debunk your ill thought out little diatribes. I want you to recite to me, chapter and verse, where the Founding Fathers committed policy for genocide (a word you dropped far too easily) and disenfranchised women.”

Blue’s interactive, specialty toys are not available in big box stores. They don’t just follow movie fads, and she said their toys are more long-lasting and safer than many toys from corporations. Owen said some of the dangers of corporate toys include strangulation and choking. “Sometimes I’ll see that at a big box store there’s a huge list of things that have been recalled,” Gallegos said. “There’s been this hazard in glue that hasn’t been tested or something, and that just really freaks me out.” All of Out of the Blue’s products are tested by the managers for safety, durability and age-appropriateness. “We are these nerds about toys and we learn a lot about everything in the store,” Gallegos said. “A lot of parents want to buy games for really young children, and we are like ‘Well, this one’s really more of a cooperation game, waiting your turn, respecting other people.’” Education is innate to all toys, Owen said, because kids learn in all types of situations. “Some people come in and say they want ‘educational,’ but I think everything’s educational,” Owen said. “Play, creativity, having fun, it’s all educational. It helps establish your outlook and how you’re going through life logically.” Gallegos said kids usually don’t even realize they are

learning when they play. Children frequently call Gallegos by phone, and she watches them grow up. She speaks fondly of Andres, a 6-year-old boy who likes dinosaurs. “I’ve known Andres since he was really little — he’s really smart and we have a really great rapport,” Gallegos said. “He still wonders if I know him and I’m like, ‘Are you kidding me right now? Of course I know you, come

on.’ You can tell this kid is really smart and amazing and you’re glad to recommend the things that form his childhood.” Out of the Blue Monday through Saturday 10 a.m. to 6 p.m., Sunday noon to 6 p.m. 2502 Rio Grande Blvd. N.W.
