Johnson Center under renovation until 2020 Lottery

Scholarship funds see increase

By Justin Garcia

Major renovations and expansions of Johnson Center on the University of New Mexico’s main campus is set to begin mid-June and last until early spring 2020 — bringing closures and relocations with it. The construction of the over 100,000 square foot space will cost $35 million, all of which comes from student fees, according to Jim Todd, director of recreational services. “Recreation centers go far in helping students succeed,” Todd said. “With the mandatory freshmen living on campus requirements, we need things for freshmen to do,” adding that an upgraded Johnson Center will help increase student recruitment and retention. The weight and cardio rooms will be temporarily relocated to the auxiliary gym until the new space is completed. The bike shop will go to room B08 in Johnson Center and the outdoor shop to B12. Closure of the south gym, dance room, aerobic room, mat (wrestling) room and racquetball courts will begin on June 11th. These areas will remain closed throughout construction, according to the department of recreational services. According to Todd, the racquetball courts will mostly likely not be returning. Some of the new additions to Johnson Center will be a larger space for weight and cardio equipment, functional training rooms, an indoor-cycling studio and an indoor running and walking track. One of the biggest changes coming to Johnson Center is the addition of a central courtyard, or concourse, from

which users can access many of the gyms and rooms. “A lot of this project is to open up pathways,” Todd said. The new design also calls for additional bathrooms and the remodeling of existing ones. An upgraded heating and air conditioning systems, a new laundry room, and new spaces for the Outdoor & Bike Shop will also be included. Part of the construction includes reworking the Central and Princeton intersection. Once complete, Princeton will feed into the University. Johnson field and all swimming pools will remain open during the construction. If the budget allows, Todd said a rock-wall

could also be included in the renovations. As an alternative to Johnson Center, many area gyms already offer a student special, usually requiring a student ID. Planet Fitness is offering students their Black Card Membership for “0 down, no commitment.” The membership includes access to any of their nationwide centers, massage chairs and to a Planet Fitness trainer, according to their website. It cost $21.99 per month, with a $39 annual charge. Justin Garcia is a freelance reporter with the Daily Lobo. He can contacted at news@dailylobo.com.

Each year the New Mexico Department of Higher Education is required to send out a letter announcing the next school year’s Lottery Scholarship funding. This year it was announced that students will be receiving more money than originally thought — almost $800 more for some students. The Lottery Scholarship, which aids more than 26,000 students annually, was a hot topic in the previous state legislative session. Senate Bill 140 was unanimously approved by the House of Representatives and dictates how much students with the scholarship will receive. The amounts approved on February 15 are a base amount of $1,500 for students at research institutes such as the University of New Mexico, $1,020 for

students at comprehensive institutions such as Eastern New Mexico and $380 for students at community colleges, such as Central New Mexico Community College. An additional $4 million was allocated for the 2018-2019 school year, boosting scholarship money to the base funds for students at the three different institution types, according to the Department of Higher Education’s letter. The new amounts are as follows for Fall 2018 and Spring 2019 semesters: $2,294 for research institutions, $1,560 for comprehensive institutions and $581 for community college students. According to HED, these amounts are configured from past revenues and projected revenues for the New Mexico Lottery Authority.

“Solo” reveals hidden layers in Star Wars universe By Timber Mabes @timbermabes Released on May 24th, 2018, “Solo: A Star Wars Story” has been one of the most anticipated and greatest advertised new movies of 2018. The Star Wars franchise kicked off the summer with this exciting new release, which serves as a backstory for the beloved Star Wars character, Han Solo. The Star Wars franchise has a reputation of telling stories backward, and this movie was set multiple decades before the events of the 2017 Star Wars film, “The Last Jedi.” Many Star Wars fans likely know that Han Solo was originally played by Harrison Ford in the “Star Wars”

Episodes IV-VII, but in this addition to the Star Wars franchise, Han is played by Alden Ehrenreich, who in my opinion, does an amazing job. Watching the film’s trailer, I was somewhat sad because Ehrenreich looks little like a young Harrison Ford, but once the movie began that was the last thing that I was thinking about. Ehrenreich did an absolutely wonderful job exemplifying Han’s character, and the movie granted viewers many interesting insights into Han’s childhood and past, truly did transform himself into the legendary character. As an added bonus, not only does the film touch on Han’s backstory, but part of Chewbacca’s backstory too. If you have ever wondered what Han’s name means, how Han and

Chewie met, how Han learned to

fly or how Han came across his ship, this movie is the right movie for you. And, even if you aren’t a huge Star Wars fan, the movie will still make sense and will still be entertaining. Unlike “The Last Jedi,” this movie requires no previous Star Wars knowledge to keep up. It simply follows the story of how Han Solo came to be the Han Solo that many of us know and love today. The film also stars many wellknown actors, such as Woody Harrelson and Emilia Clarke, and singer, rapper and writer Donald Glover (a.k.a. Childish Gambino). I would love to tell you so many more details about the movie’s plot and character dynamics, but I truly just do not want to give one thing away. It is so much better going in blind and waiting for the surprises.

This movie kept me excited, interested, full of laughter and tears, and put a huge smile on my face. The film explores the meaning of friendship, loyalty, love, and shows the audience what it means to be a “good guy.” It also gives us a look into the Star Wars world that has never been seen before. Everyone, both young and old, should see “Solo: A Star Wars Story.” It is full of meaning, action and will give longtime Star Wars fans a bit of nostalgia for the past.

Student enrollment at UNM continues to decline By Anthony Jackson @TonyAnjackson Low student enrollment is not a new phenomenon at the University of New Mexico. According to data from the Student Enrollment Office (SEO), UNM’s enrollment since 2014 has decreased more than 10 percent, and that drop is reflected among University departments. From Spring 2014 to Spring 2018, undergraduate enrollment at the College of Fine Arts dipped more than 18 percent. They are not alone in this decline, according to the 2018 SEO Student Headcount report. Graduate programs are also negatively affected by low enrollment numbers. The College of Engineering has faced more than a six percent decline over five years, according to the 2018 report. Chuck Fleddermann, the associate dean for Academic Affairs at the School of Engineering, said keeping a student headcount is important to the department. “Some of the funding mechanisms that keep UNM and the School (of Engineering) going are dependent upon student headcount — less students, less money coming in,” Fleddermann said. Fledderman said that the decline is nothing for the School of Engineering to worry about because of how “cyclical” engineering enrollment is. “Whenever the economy is booming, engineering enrollments

(go) down because people have great jobs and they’re doing fine, and when the economy does bad then engineering enrollments go up because jobs become scarce,” Fleddermann said. Fleddermann said foreign exchange is another part of the coin that affects engineering enrollment. “The trend right now in higher education is foreign students looking to go elsewhere and are not coming to the United States,” he said. Adding that foreign students are looking to countries like

Canada and Australia for engineering education. In March 2018, the School of Engineering receives a @3 milliom cash donation. Christos Christodoulou, the associate dean for research at the School of Engineering, said he hopes renovations will attract more students to the Department of Engineering. Potential students skipping University enrollment are going elsewhere for higher education or joining the workforce, said Terry

Babbitt, associate vice president of enrollment management. Babbitt said to alleviate stresses of dropping enrollment, the University “would have to segment markets to include post-traditional learners, near-completers who have not finished degrees, military personnel and veterans, online (students) and a few others.” Enrollment may decrease more and level off soon, according to Babbitt. He said departments could be subjected to budget cuts and layoffs of departmental staff if

enrollment drops too severely. The 2018 Student Enrollment report cited a 75 percent decline in enrollment at the University College, but the report said it does not mean students are leaving the University, said Rob del Campo, the dean of the University College. The noticeable drop is from students switching majors, said Del Campo. “Every…freshman came into the University College and we would have every single student not admitted to a major yet,” Del Campo said. He added that four years ago students stopped going through the University College if they knew which field they wanted to study. Now first year students are immediately enrolled in a college based on their field of choice without going through the University College, he said. “If you are an exploratory major - or don’t know what to study yet you start at the University College,” Del Campo said. The Daily Lobo reached out to the College of Fine Arts and UNM President Garnett Stokes, but received no comment prior to the publication of this article.

LETTERS Missing children — the “Pottery Barn rule” revisited If one in five American parents couldn’t figure out where their kids were, most people would rightly see the phenomenon as a crisis and a national scandal. Grandstanding prosecutors with visions of gubernatorial campaigns dancing in their heads would conduct mass parental perp walks. Legislators would boost their presidential aspirations by co-sponsoring legislation requiring universal implantation of GPS trackers at birth. However, when the same U.S. government that postures as a better parent than real parents, crows over “extreme vetting” of immigrants and announces separation of undocumented families as policy loses

track of 19 percent of unaccompanied refugee children placed in homes by the Office of Refugee resettlement, ORR is “not legally responsible,” according to Steven Wagner, acting assistant secretary for the Administration for Children and Families. That’s par for the course when it comes to government and responsibility. For example, if I find myself in fear of a police officer and shoot him, you can bet your bottom dollar I’ll be held “legally responsible.” But if that same police officer shoots me and then claims he was afraid, because he thought my cell phone was a gun, the chances of any “legal responsibility” attaching are slim. If he doesn’t just get a paid vacation (“administrative leave”) before being cleared as having acted in accordance with department policy, a court will likely find him not

responsible under the theory of sovereign immunity (the idea that when a government employee is on the job, no personal liability attaches to that employee’s actions). Even when a government official does “accept responsibility,” it usually reads as “OK, I’ve said I accept responsibility, now let’s forget about it and move on as if nothing happened, and don’t you dare mention it next time I’m up for promotion or re-election.” In 2002, US Secretary of State Colin Powell allegedly invoked “the Pottery Barn rule” — “you break it, you bought it” — by way of trying to get President George W. Bush to rethink the ill-fated invasion of Iraq. Pottery Barn actually has no such rule, but when I was a kid a lot of stores sported signs saying exactly that.

Government doesn’t have such a rule either, but it should. A government employee who loses track of 1,475 children placed in his charge needs to to be fired — at least. An investigation of possible criminal negligence doesn’t seem unreasonable to me, nor does a home visit by the area’s Department of Children’s Services or equivalent to make sure his or her own kids haven’t gone missing. Even better, we could stop handing over so much power to government on the silly supposition that government jobs magically make the people who hold them smarter, more competent, or more responsible than us regular folks.

Student examines bird species at UNM By Anthony Jackson @TonyAnjackson Sun rays partially embraced the University of New Mexico by 7 a.m. on May 23. Shadows behind the University’s buildings mixed with brisk air as campus wildlife stirred. Desert cottontails hopped from the safety of their dens to eat turf, kissed with fine drops of morning dew, next to robins prodding the damp earth with their beaks. Danica Simmons, a senior majoring in biology and psychology, is enveloped by choruses sung by robins, barn swallows, goldfinches and bushtits. They fly overhead or sunbathe from various branches and ledges in front of the Centennial Engineering Building. Searching for a nest that looks like it can hold a golf ball, Simmons is guided by the sound of rapid, piercing chirps of goldfinch offspring who are about to receive their morning meal. Simmons is taking an independent biology study. She comes to the University at 7 a.m. on select days to walk campus and take notes on her findings. “I am surveying campus for bird species, seeing how many we have, if they’re nesting or not and, of course, seeing how safe they are,” Simmons said. “We’re looking at the bird health and biodiversity.” Simmons records bird species using an app called eBird. It allows her to review other users’ findings and know what birds to expect in a certain area. She also photographs

and documents areas of concern for bird safety. Simmons looks for buildings with large windows during her campus survey. Large windows can be rife areas for birds crashing into them, known as “window strikes.” “A lot of people might think skyscrapers are the biggest culprits, but it’s actually the (buildings) that go one to three stories high, because that’s where most birds are hanging out,” she said. “Sure, they’ll fly over, but usually they’re going between trees, which aren’t as tall as skyscrapers.” Window strikes can be decreased by installing windows with patterns that create a better distinction between a building and the sky, Simmons said. “(Birds) don’t have our eyes. (Birds) don’t know what glass is. It’s not fair. We’re building where

they’re used to flying back and forth — so of course they’re gonna crash,” she said, walking along the edge of the glass Farris Engineering Building, looking for dead birds. Heavy construction machinery is heard as far as the Farris Engineering Building and grew louder as Simmons walked between groves of trees lining the path away from Marron Hall. Simmons said areas with construction do not harm birds, but can make living more difficult for them. “There are studies (of ) birds changing how loud and what sort of pitch they are singing or calling based off how loud the background noise is,” Simmons said, as sounds of bulldozers moving piles of earth and workers clanging metal ringing from the construction site roared around her. While she walked toward the

Center of the Universe, Simmons pointed out “hotspots” for Cooper’s Hawks along the treeline in front of the Elizabeth Waters Center for Dance. Along the same line of trees, red and brown headed house finches hopped to and from different branches. Simmons pointed out bluebacked, orange-breasted barn swallows nesting with their young in semi-circular nests that look as though they were made with the adobe of Ortega Hall. “They carry all these beak-fulls of mud until it makes a little nest. That is a lot of freaking work for those little birds,” she said, as a swallows’ head hid behind the cover of its nest. Between Ortega Hall and Zimmerman Library there is a shaded courtyard, partially encircled by dark green ivy plants. A water fountain sits in the middle of the courtyard and is frequented by birds. Simmons said the area is a great place to birdwatch. “This is such a cool campus — there is so much to see if you are actually looking for it,” Simmons said, adding that she does not feel like she is at school when she loses herself in the campus flora and fauna. Students on campus should stay on the lookout for birds in thickets or near streams making a late spring migration this May, said Museum of Southwestern Biology Director and Curator of Birds, Christopher Witt. “It’s an exciting time of year to bird on campus, basically the

spring and fall migration — late April and early May, and late August to early September — are the most fun times to bird on campus, because that’s when the diversity is pretty high, and there have been some very rare birds over the years that have been seen on campus,” Witt said. Witt said among the diverse species on campus, there have been reports of owls, woodpeckers, black-and-white warblers, and what he said is the best species he has seen, a yellow-throated warbler. Witt said the artificial waterfall at the top of the Duck Pond is a “hot spot” for students looking to bird. Another location, Witt said, is at UNM’s North Golf Course. “It’s probably the best place to birdwatch that’s really part of campus. It’s a little more wild out there, (students) can see things that are more typical of the Bosque,” Witt said. Simmons carries binoculars and a camera with her on her walks, but she said students do not need these tools to birdwatch. Simmons said she wants to work as a conservationist after college and she hopes that this summer’s research will help improve the safety and habitat of our winged companions on campus.

If tuition is lower than the amount allocated, according the HED letter, students will be awarded the full tuition price. Prior to the decision on May 31, 2017 to reduce the Lottery Scholarship funding from covering 90 percent of tuition to 60 percent, students were awarded $2,465 for the Spring 2017 semester, according to the HED’s

2017 Legislative Lottery Scholarship Report. As for the years following the 2018-2019 school year, it is possible for the amount to go back down to the original allocations voted on by the legislature, with no guarantee it could reach Spring 2017 levels. Brian Malone, the director of the Student Financial Aid Office, said the University will

but his focus is public outreach to engage citizens, which he envisions doing by taking the office on the road. “There’s a fraud hotline at the Office of the State Auditor, and most people don’t know that,” he said. Colón has never previously held office before. He ran in the 2010 Governor’s race, tapped for lieutenant governor by gubernatorial candidate and former lieutenant governor, Diane Denish. He recently ran in the 2017 race for Albuquerque mayor, in which he placed third. Colón was born in New York, but moved to Valencia County when he was young. He said growing up in governmental housing and losing his father as a teenager were hardships that make the mission of the office highly personal. “After my father died I didn’t have a single blood relative in New Mexico,” Colón said. “Those governmental programs meant my survival.” Colón said that his background in law and finance qualifies him for the office. He received a Bachelor of Business Administration in finance in 1998 from New Mexico State University and graduated from the University of New Mexico’s law school in 2001. Colón said the evolution of

not know until next June about next year’s scholarship when HED makes their announcement. As for the overall impact on the University, Terry Babbitt, the vice provost of Enrollment & Analytics, said it should help students stay in school. He said the additional amount is significant for students who are on the edge of having enough fi-

nancial resources to stay enrolled, a margin he said he knows is a substantial number. The additional funds is following the year with the lowest amount of money allocated through the scholarship. According to the New Mexico Lottery website, in 2017, only $37.8 million was awarded— $4 million short of the $41.8 million average over the past 10 years.

The increase will go into effect for the Fall 2018 semester.

5,400 sexual assault forensic exams that have gone untested. These exams, also called “rape kits,” contain DNA and other evidence collected in sexual assault investigations. “It wasn’t really until Keller came in and did a transparency report on the rape kit backlog that policy leaders took action, and we finally had some movement in that — really what could be called a crisis when it comes to evidence,” Colón said. New Mexico’s backlog of untested kits per capita was the worst in the nation, according to Keller’s audit in 2016. There are still 4,000 untested kits as of April. In regards to UNM, Colón said it would be premature to speculate on what he might do if he wins office. However, he offered his opinion. He said President Garnett Stokes’ new leadership is dedicated to transparency, and the University is a public institution that spends taxpayer money, and has to be held accountable if there is waste, fraud or abuse. “I would want to finish the work that Auditor Keller started and keep open lines of communication, because there are a lot of issues — the President has stepped into a real firestorm,” Colón said. “The hits just keep coming. Obviously, it’s an institution

that’s going to need some attention.” The Office of the State Auditor has opened several audits into UNM, the most recent being the October 2017 audit of the Department of Athletics’ finances, finding 10 discrepancies. “We know that the State Auditor’s office was one of the first to shine a light on some of the things that were going on at UNM, and that impacts (students’) daily lives,” Colón said. Colón said that the Office of the State Auditor has been effective, but faces challenges, such as a $300,000 budget cut since 2016. He says the office has to continue to encourage outreach. “While this office has uncovered millions of dollars in waste, fraud and abuse, I have to tell you that unfortunately that may be the tip of the iceberg,” Colón said. “Unless we help engage New Mexicans in identifying these areas of concern we’re not going to be able to truly reform New Mexico government.”

the office was due to his predecessors — now Attorney General Hector Balderas and Keller, the mayor of Albuquerque. “Hector had a strong background in law, (Keller) had a strong background in public policy and finance and I have both,” Colón said. “I’m a finance guy who’s been practicing law for 17 years.” Colón said the office has provided invaluable work in uncovering fraud and abuse, the most prominent example being over
