Recycling material at plant catches fire Gunman wounds 4 cops, is killed by Ardee Napolitano @ArdeeTheJourno

A blaze damaged a recycling facility south of Albuquerque International Sunport on Sunday. Larry Gallegos, public information officer for Bernalillo County, said piles of recycled material stacked in front of the Town Recycling warehouse caught fire at about noon. Town Recycling is located near the intersection of Broadway

and Rio Bravo Boulevards. No one was injured in the incident, Gallegos said, and the cause of the fire is under investigation. “We have no idea how the fire started,” Gallegos said. “It was kept to the outside of the building in the parking lot … A little bit of the structure’s outside has burnt.” Gallegos said recycled materials included paper and plastics, which resulted in a huge cloud of black smoke billowing into the air during the fire.

Gallegos said that because the materials burned in front of the warehouse, the building suffered damage on its porch area but did not completely burn down. Although the fire department stabilized the fire, the blaze will require additional work to completely eradicate it, Gallegos said. “When you get these bales of stuff that might burn for a couple days,” he said. “We’re going to get tractors in here and try to get that stuff pulled away. As we bring the trucks in and

start to pull these bales apart, we’ll probably still have some more fire. So we’ll be putting water on this for a while.” Gallegos said that although there had been similar fires in the facility’s area before, this was the first time that Town Recycling went ablaze. Police had immediately alerted the owners of the facility, Gallegos said. Although the owners were present at the scene of the blaze, they declined to be interviewed until police finish their investigation into the incident.

GPSA seeks input on wellness center by Chloe Henson @ChloeHenson5

The Graduate and Professional Student Association will begin gathering feedback from students regarding the construction of a new wellness center at UNM. James Foty, executive assistant for the president at GPSA, updated the council on its plans to build the center at a meeting Saturday. Foty said plans to construct a new center had been in the works for several years. “They were ready to build the building. They had it planned and all that,” he said. “But the regents killed it because of the economic downturn in 2009.” According to an article by the Daily Lobo, ASUNM and GPSA proposed renovations to the recreation center in 2008, and presented the idea to the Board of Regents in 2009. But because the board deemed the facility to have not served an academic purpose, the board planned

to allot student fees instead of taxpayer dollars to the project. However, the board decided not to proceed because student interest and support in planning for use and paying for the project was not strong enough. Foty said the regents are now reviving efforts to construct the wellness center. The center would function as more than a recreational center for students, he said. “The new (recreation) center would also include Student Health and Counseling, so it would be a true wellness center,” he said. “The idea is to create an iconic building on campus that would be attractive and would act as an aide for recruiting new students.” Chief of Staff Matthew Rush said GPSA was approached by the administration to design the wellness center during the summer. Rush said construction for the project probably will not start for another few years. “I believe the aim this year is to really get the student feedback on

it by next semester,” he said. “Then over the summer we’ll start really developing the plan. And I believe next year is when they’ll make a decision and try to figure out when to fund it.” Foty said GPSA developed a plan for the new structure that includes four phases. He said the first phase will be to construct a new recreational center in A Lot. The second and third phases involve expanding and renovating Johnson Center, while the fourth entails expansion of the Center’s pool, he said. “The details are not worked out yet, they’re not in the actual design phases,” he said. “They’re just moving along. They’re going.” Although the total cost of the project is unknown, the budget for the first phase could be as much as $75 million, Foty said. He said GPSA will hold forums sometime during the next three weeks to discuss the project, but he said there is still not a particular date set for the forums. United Way Campaign GPSA will also work with United

Way, a nonprofit philanthropic national organization, to raise funds for the University. Rush said training for volunteers to raise funds will begin next week, and campaigning will start at the beginning of next month. “The United Way campaign starts Nov. 4 and will run through January,” he said. One of the campaigns GPSA is pushing this year is for people to sign up to donate small sums through their paychecks, Rush said. “One of the great things that they do is, people within UNM, staff faculty students, can have (donations) taken out of their salary,” he said. Rush said GPSA hopes to raise money to support scholarships and grants for UNM graduate students. “We’d like to see as much funds as we can raise for graduate students,” he said. “One of the major things we were concentrating on was using funding from the United Way to increase scholarships and grants for students.”

ALBUQUERQUE — A man who wounded four Albuquerque law enforcement officers during a high-speed chase through the city had a tattoo labeled “cop killer,” authorities said Sunday. Albuquerque Police Chief Allen Banks identified the gunman as 35-year-old Christopher Chase, who died after crashing a stolen police car Saturday at a gasoline station. Albuquerque television station KOAT reported that Chase was armed with an assault rifle. Three Albuquerque police officers and a Bernalillo County sheriff ’s deputy were wounded during the shooting spree. Police declined to identify the three officers or to provide many details of their injuries, but one remains hospitalized. Bernalillo County Sheriff ’s Deputy Robin Hopkins is in the intensive care unit of an Albuquerque hospital, according to Sheriff Dan Houston. She had worked for the law enforcement agency since 1998. Banks said Chase stole a police car after an officer took cover after coming under fire. Witnesses said Chase told them to call police and “he would be waiting for them,” Banks said at a news conference, according to video posted on the website of KOB-TV. Chase was dressed in body armor, camouflage clothing and wore a black mask. “The subject called and waited for police. I call it a senseless act, a coward’s act,” Banks said when asked if the shooting was an ambush. He said the motive for the shooting remains under investigation. Authorities declined to say whether Chase died from shots fired by police and said that the cause of death would be determined by the Office of the Medical Examiner. Banks said Chase had a criminal record but police continue to investigate his background. Officials said it’s uncertain how many shots were fired. Investigators searched Chase’s house and initially thought it had bobby traps, but those turned out to be fake.

New Mexico Daily Lobo Last week, the New Mexico Supreme Court heard arguments on whether to legalize same-sex marriage across the state. Those against same-sex marriage argued that it shouldn’t be legal because samesex couples cannot procreate. What is your opinion of that argument

Shane McQueen Biology, freshman “I think that whole argument is B.S. because we have old people that get married all the time. There are sterile women and sterile guys who get married every day, and I just think that that argument doesn’t make any sense. So I don’t think there is any reason why it shouldn’t be legal, and I think the only reason that people are fighting against it is because of religion. And you can’t just put religion into law.�


Kayla Caruso Chemical engineering, sophomore “I think, honestly, that’s kind of an advantage because there are so many kids in orphanages nowadays. I have an adopted little sister and I know that there are a lot of little kids in orphanages that are just in bad situations that really need help. And so, that gives those kids a lot more opportunity than traditional marriage families that, of course, have the option and mostly always do opt to have kids (biologically).� Jeremy Thomas Anthropology, junior “There are lots of people who can’t have children, just biologically because they’re not able to reproduce, so that’s irrelevant.�

Paloma Sanchez International studies, senior “I think it’s bullshit. I think it’s just if people love each other, then that’s all that matters, and people shouldn’t be ashamed of that.�

Tyler Giering Strategic communication, senior “I don’t think it’s a very valid opinion. I feel that there are enough children in the foster system waiting to be adopted that there are other ways to have a family ‌ It’s not necessary to procreate to have those children, and the idea of a family has changed so radically over the years that that kind of old model of thinking doesn’t work in today’s world.â€?

Israel on edge for cyberattacks Constant threat spurs tough readiness training by Daniel Estrin

The Associated Press HADERA, Israel — When Israel’s military chief delivered a high-profile speech this month outlining the greatest threats his country might face in the future, he listed computer sabotage as a top concern, warning a sophisticated cyberattack could one day bring the nation to a standstill. Lt. Gen. Benny Gantz was not speaking empty words. Exactly one month before his address, a major artery in Israel’s national road network in the northern city of Haifa was shut down because of a cyberattack, cybersecurity experts tell The Associated Press, knocking key operations out of commission two days in a row and causing hundreds of thousands of dollars in damage. One expert, speaking on condition of anonymity because the breach of security was a classified matter, said a Trojan horse attack targeted the security camera system in the Carmel Tunnels toll road on Sept. 8. A Trojan horse is a malicious computer program that users unknowingly install that can give hackers complete control over their systems. The attack caused an immediate 20-minute lockdown of the roadway. The next day, the expert said, it shut down the roadway again during morning rush hour. It remained shut for eight hours, causing massive congestion. The expert said investigators believe the attack was the work of unknown, sophisticated hackers, similar to the Anonymous hacking group that led attacks on Israeli websites in April. He said investigators determined it was not sophisticated enough to be the work of an enemy government like Iran. The expert said Israel’s National Cyber Bureau, a two-year-old classified body that reports to the

prime minister, was aware of the incident. The bureau declined comment, while Carmelton, the company that oversees the toll road, blamed a “communication glitch” for the mishap. While Israel is a frequent target of hackers, the tunnel is the most high-profile landmark known to have been attacked. It is a major thoroughfare for Israel’s third-largest city, and the city is looking to turn the tunnel into a public shelter in case of emergency, highlighting its importance. The incident is exactly the type of scenario that Gantz described in his recent address. He said Israel’s future battles might begin with “a cyberattack on websites which provide daily services to the citizens of Israel. Traffic lights could stop working, the banks could be shut down,” he said. There have been cases of traffic tampering before. In 2005, the United States outlawed the unauthorized use of traffic override devices installed in many police cars and ambulances after unscrupulous drivers started using them to turn lights from red to green. In 2008, two Los Angeles traffic engineers pleaded guilty to breaking into the city’s signal system and deliberately snarling traffic as part of a labor dispute. Oren David, a manager at international security firm RSA’s anti-fraud unit, said that although he didn’t have information about the tunnel incident, this kind of attack “is the hallmark of a new era.” “Most of these systems are automated, especially as far as security is concerned. They’re automated and they’re remotely controlled, either over the Internet or otherwise, so they’re vulnerable to cyberattack,” he said. Israel, he added, is “among the top-targeted countries.” In June, Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said Iran and its proxies Hezbollah and Hamas have targeted Israel’s “essential systems,” including its water system, electric grid, trains and banks. “Every sphere of civilian

The Lobo Letter ltye u c Fa enat S

Undergrad research projects offer honors and experience

My purpose in this Lobo Letter is to encourage undergraduates to engage in independent scholarly projects before they graduate with BA or BS degrees from UNM. The number of semester hours UNM requires for a baccalaureate degree varies somewhat with the major. It must now be at least 128 semester hours, although there is a proposal under consideration to lower that minimum to 120. As most students know, they must complete the “core curriculum” of about 37 hours, and then fulfill major and minor requirements for their degrees (except for the BUS degree, which can be constructed differently with adviser approval). In most programs, there is room for some credit-bearing individual scholarly work, usually for juniors or seniors. These courses go by various names, such as “Readings,” “Undergraduate Problems” or “Undergraduate Research,” depending on the department. But they all constitute a special topic of individual study carried out by a student working one-on-one with a faculty member who offers advice and oversight. In the sciences and engineering these often involve laboratory research, working alongside graduate students and postdoctoral fellows. It is not unusual for the student to make a significant discovery and then report this as a co-author of a paper in a scientific journal. In the humanities and social sciences, the undergraduate scholarly work might well require careful advanced reading and analysis of a special topic resulting in a senior thesis. In the Fine Arts, the parallel projects could result in a senior show or recital. Service Learning projects or work in Sustainability Studies offer parallel scholarly experiences. Regardless of the field of study, these projects can lead to graduation with honors, either from the department or through the Honors College. In some cases this individual work can also be accomplished in a formalized program where a stipend is offered. These include the McNair Program, the Research Opportunity Program, the STEM Research Programs and others. Students can look at for more information. If a faculty member has research funding from a national source, such as the National Science Foundation, the grant may include funds to pay undergraduates to carry out research during the summers. It is sometimes possible to work in a laboratory for undergraduate credit toward a degree during the academic year, and then continue the project for pay during the summer. These individual experiences, guided by a faculty member, are extremely valuable parts of the intellectual growth that a college education provides. Many faculty members join me in encouraging every undergraduate student to seek out these opportunities as part of their baccalaureate programs. Richard Holder President of the Faculty Senate

LETTERS The social contract does not exclude the unborn Editor, You must wear a seatbelt. You must stop at a red light. You can’t drink alcohol and drive. You can’t talk on your cell phone and drive at the same time without a hands-free device. You must be 21 years old to drink alcohol. You must be 18 years old to buy cigarettes. You must pay for the merchandise you take out of a store. You must pay taxes on your income. You cannot hit another person, except in self-defense or defense of another. You cannot cheat on a test. You cannot rob a bank, even if you need the money. There are so many rules we all must follow in order to maintain a civilized, just and wellordered society, with some rules being more important than others. I remember talking to my son one day about the necessity for rules. He was in soccer at the time, so I asked him, “What would soccer be like without any rules?” He surprised me with the simplicity and clarity of his reply, saying “It would not be soccer.” One of the bedrock rules of any civilized and just society is that you cannot intentionally kill an innocent and defenseless human being. Imagine how frightening, chaotic and evil society would be if people could freely kill each other. We would have to constantly walk around armed with weapons to protect ourselves and our families. Most of us would rarely venture outside for fear someone would kill us. This basic rule about not killing lays the foundation for a civilized society. What many people don’t realize is that legalized abortion, which literally says you can kill, has created total chaos and injustice for unborn human beings. We have turned the first months of every person’s life into a lawless war zone. During the first months of life, every person can be killed for any reason whatsoever. You can be killed for being sick, handicapped, unwanted, poor, the wrong sex, being unplanned for, considered an obstacle to success, an object of scientific research and so forth. I wish people would realize the extremely dangerous, unequal and unjust situation every human being lives in before birth due to legalized abortion. What is supposed to be one of the most secure periods of life — living and growing within our mothers — has

been turned into a war zone for many. 1.2 million don’t make it every year in the U.S. This is the basic pro-life position: Life must be protected at all stages in order to secure justice for every person. In order for every person to be treated equally and justly, life must be protected from the first moment of existence. On November 19, 2013 the people of Albuquerque have the opportunity to help secure justice for the unborn by voting to limit abortion. We need to reinforce the most basic rule of a civilized, just and good society: No one has the right to intentionally kill an innocent and defenseless human being at any stage of life. Benjamin Sanchez UNM alumnus

Doctor’s stance ignores the baby’s perspective Editor, Dr. Sandra Penn’s letter, “Vote ‘no’ on abortion restriction measure” found in Wednesday’s Daily Lobo, is nothing more than an attempt at the continued promulgation of genocide, dressing it up in the guise of “scientific detachment.” First of all, the supposed right to an abortion is not a health care issue despite the attempts to portray it as so. This is because being pregnant is not an illness or disease, nor will anyone find it defined as such in any medical textbook. Second, the government, the city and the state have the right to intervene when the life of an innocent person is at stake. That is why we have the police, the military and the National Guard. And if Sandra Penn is going to argue that the 5-month-old fetus is not a person, she is on very shaky ground. A 5-month-old fetus has a developing brain, heart and spinal cord. In addition, the 5-month-old fetus can feel and register pain. This, however, is the major blind spot in Penn’s specious argument. Not once in her disguised diabolical diatribe does she consider what late-term abortion is like for the fetus. So I’ll give you one example of what often happens. The baby’s head is pulled outside the woman’s body, though the feet are left inside so that the procedure — i.e. murder — will not

be equated with infanticide. Next, scissors are used to cut into the baby’s still-developing brain. Next, the brain is suctioned out of the still-developing skull, ending the baby’s life. How, in any way, is this “safe” for the 5-month-old fetus? Needless to say, the fetus screams loudly during this infanticide — screams that apparently Penn and other prochoice people are deaf to. In addition, what evidence does Penn give that the medical community “overwhelmingly” supports abortion, let alone late-term abortion? Any look at surveys from the internet will show deep divisions within the medical community. Penn also gives the false reassurance that pregnant women who want an abortion will receive the “best, safest and most appropriate procedure for her condition.” This begs the question: What about the torturous and murderous abortion practices of Dr. Kermit Gosnell and others that have left many women severely handicapped and, in some cases, dead? People should not let themselves be swayed by vacuous arguments meant to conceal inhuman practices. Any discussion of abortion which leaves out the realities of suffering and death for the baby lacks integrity and honesty. Mark J. Wilson UNM alumnus

Central African Republic Clashes against vigilante and rebel groups in the Central African Republic killed 12 people over the weekend. According to a report from the Central African Republic military released Sunday, several others from both sides were injured after the conflict on Saturday. The incident happened in the city of Bouar, in which troops who were previously members of the Seleka rebel tribe seized control of the town from the vigilante group. No gunfire was reportedly heard during the clash, and militias were reported to have used machetes as weapons.

Israel Proceeding with peace talks with Palestine, Israel released 26 Palestinian prisoners Sunday. The move was part of a deal between the two countries, which was aided by the United States in July, through which Israel agreed in August to release a total of 104 Palestinian inmates in a four-part process. This was the second stage of the deal. According to a statement from the office of Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, 26 other prisoners were previously freed during the first part of the deal.

Eagles struck down by late-rising Giants by Rob Maaddi

that racked up at least 425 yards in each of the first six games has been grounded. The Eagles followed a 17-3 loss to Dallas with another poor offensive performance. They had just 201 yards of offense and have totaled 479 the past two weeks. “We’re unstable at the quarterback spot. We haven’t played well at quarterback and it’s cost us the last two games,” Kelly said. LeSean McCoy, the NFL’s leading rusher, was held to 48 yards on 15 carries. DeSean Jackson had 63 yards receiving on eight catches. The Giants haven’t allowed a touchdown on defense in the last 10 quarters. “We’ve simplified things,” defensive end Justin Tuck said. “(Defensive coordinator) Perry Fewell has done a great job putting in game plans that have allowed athletes to be athletes.” The Eagles finally scored when Zak DeOssie’s snap sailed over punter Steve Weatherford’s head and Najee Goode picked it up and ran 2 yards for a touchdown with 4:11 left. “I don’t think I’ve ever seen him do that before, not even on the practice field,” Giants coach Tom Coughlin said of DeOssie.

PHILADELPHIA — The New York Giants went from 0-6 to right in the middle of the NFC East race in six days. Josh Brown kicked a career-high five field goals, Eli Manning played error-free and the Giants beat Philadelphia 15-7 Sunday. With Dallas losing to Detroit, the Giants (2-6) are just two games behind the Cowboys (4-4) in the NFL’s weakest division. “We still believe,” Manning said. “These last two weeks we’ve played our best football, together as a team, both sides, helping each other out, relying on each other. We’ve got to continue to build off that.” Michael Vick returned for the Eagles (3-5) after missing 2½ games with a hamstring injury, but clearly wasn’t healthy and was removed for rookie Matt Barkley late in the second quarter. The Giants snapped an eightgame road losing streak while extending Philadelphia’s home losing streak to 10 games. The Eagles’ last win at the Linc was over the Giants on Sept. 30, 2012. Chip Kelly’s high-flying offense

Minnesota 23-7 last Monday night. Manning was 25 of 39 for 246 yards and didn’t throw an interception for the second consecutive game after getting picked 15 times in first six weeks. Barkley finished 17 of 26 for 158 yards and one interception. “Matt has been thrown in twice into tough situations,” Kelly said. “He gave us a little spark, a little energy.” Vick was reduced to being an immobile pocket passer. He completed 6 of 9 for 31 yards, threw an interception, was sacked and got called for intentional grounding. The Eagles managed 27 total yards in the four series Vick played. Barkley came in and drove the Eagles 78 yards in just over a minute late in the second quarter. But on first down from the 2, Barkley was sacked by Terrell Thomas and fumbled. Jacquian Williams recovered at the Giants 12. Brown kicked field goals of 40, 44, 33 and 46 yards on four straight possessions in the first half to give the Giants a 12-0 lead. Antrel Rolle intercepted Vick’s second pass and sacked him for a 12yard loss inside the Eagles 10 on the next series. The Giants moved the ball easily throughout the game, but couldn’t get it in the end zone. They had a first down

Lobos don’t need a bowl to savor season by Thomas Romero-Salas @ThomasRomeroS

There’s still a chance for the New Mexico football team to make a bowl game this year — it’s just not a favorable one. Sitting at 2-5 and coming off one of its worst performances in the Bob Davie era — a 45-10 shellacking by Utah State on Oct. 19 — the team’s chances are about as good as the odds of Congress agreeing on what to do with the government. With only five games left, UNM would have to play some of its best football of the season in order to win the four games necessary to secure its first bowl berth since 2007, when the Lobos defeated Nevada 23-0 in the New Mexico Bowl. That year was also the last time UNM had a stretch of winning four out of five games or better. Mathematically speaking, it’s possible, but the schedule down the stretch is what will keep the Lobos home for the holidays. Losing winnable games to the University of Texas-San Antonio and UNLV earlier in the year didn’t help UNM’s standing either.

This week the Lobos travel to San Diego State, host Air Force the following week, then take on Colorado State in their home finale. All winnable games, right? Before the season it might’ve been a “yes,” but now all of those games look like ‘L’s, except maybe the game versus the Falcons, who are 1-7 this year. SDSU could be a toss-up, but Colorado’s Rams demolished Wyoming 52-22 on Oct 19. The Lobos had to rally from a 21-0 deficit at Wyoming but lost 38-31. Let’s give UNM the benefit of the doubt and say it does find a way to beat SDSU, Air Force and CSU. That would put the team at 5-5 — one win away from that sweet, sweet bowl berth. This obviously would be the best possible situation for UNM heading into the last two weeks of the season. But UNM finishes the year with arguably the two toughest teams in the conference: Fresno State and Boise State on the road. The Bulldogs are the last undefeated team in the MWC at 7-0 (4-0 MWC), ranked No. 16

New Mexico football head coach Bob Davie paces on the sidelines during the game against Utah State at University Stadium on Oct. 19. The Lobos’ bowl chances are slim; they need to win four of their last five games to secure their first bowl berth since 2007. Sergio Jiménez @SXfoto

Cheatham chooses SDSU by Thomas Romero-Salas @ThomasRomeroS

All it took was the zip of a jacket for the New Mexico basketball team to lose out on Zylan Cheatham. Cheatham, the No. 1 prospect in the state of Arizona, unzipped his jacket to unveil a San Diego State T-shirt. That signaled he had chosen San Diego State over Washington University and conference rival UNM. Cheatham live-streamed his decision via YouTube Saturday night at the Arizona Prep Fall Showcase in Scottsdale. “I feel like it was the best option for me,” he said during his press conference. “They have a lot of great players. I think we’re going to shock the world.” The decision comes after UNM fans showered Cheatham with love over Twitter and in person. When Cheatham did come on his official recruiting visit to Albuquerque, fans showed up at his hotel waving ‘Z’ signs, and during the Lobo Howl on Oct. 18 fans held up signs with ‘Z’ on them while chanting “We want Z” several times throughout the event. “They’ve already invested so much in me that you wish you could repay it somehow for all three (coaching staffs), but you can only repay one of them,” Cheatham told the Albuquerque Journal. Cheatham, a forward, is ranked the No. 87 prospect by ESPN and

Sports briefs Men’s soccer The New Mexico men’s soccer team suffered its first road loss of the season, falling to South Carolina 1-0. The teams played a scoreless regulation game before the Gamecocks’ Eli Dent scored the game-winner just a minute into the overtime period. UNM held a 14-8 advantage in shots and an 10-3 edge in corner kicks. Lobo senior goalkeeper Michael Lisch stopped two South Carolina shots-on-goal. The loss drops UNM (8-4-2, 4-1-1 Conference USA) to second place in the league standings. The Lobos are now tied with Alabama-Birmingham, which comes to the UNM Soccer Complex on Friday. “You leave yourself open if you don’t take chances. We have said that all season,” UNM head coach Jeremy Fishbein said. “We hit the post three times and didn’t take advantage of the chances we created.” Women’s soccer UNM’s women’s soccer team fell into a tie for second place in the Mountain West Conference standings Sunday after a 2-1 double-overtime loss to Boise State. UNM sophomore goalkeeper Cassie Ulrich stopped 11 Boise State shots-on-goal in the loss, and the Broncos outshot the Lobos by 25-12. The Lobos (8-9-2, 6-2-1 MWC) struck first at the 49:13 mark off a Boise State own goal following a crossing pass by sophomore midfielder Dylann O’Connor. The Broncos’ midfielder Brooke Heidemann recorded her eighth goal this season at 51:43 to tie the match, and teammate midfielder Baylee Blaser scored a gamewinning golden goal in overtime at 107:53. “It just wasn’t our day today,” UNM coach Kit Vela said. “I think we showed a little bit of fatigue and a little bit of our youth. It was a long trip with lots of lessons, but we live to fight another day.” UNM entered the game following a scoreless draw


Name: with Utah State on Friday. Ulrich made six saves. San Diego State secured the MWC regular-season title with UNM’s Sunday loss and the Aztecs’ 2-0 win over Utah State. NCAA grad rates UNM graduated 50 percent of the student-athletes who enrolled as freshman during the 2006-07 school year, according to NCAA information released by the UNM Athletic Department. The rate is 10 percentage points lower than it was a year ago, but it is higher than the University’s 46 percent graduation rate, the release states. Those figures do not account for student-athletes who transferred from UNM. Six coaching changes in the 2006-07 academic year led to many player transfers. Those new hires were Steve Alford in men’s basketball, Ray Birmingham in baseball, Joe Franklin in cross country and track and field, Fredrik Landstedt in skiing, Jeff Nelson in volleyball and Ty Singleton in softball. “We knew because of the high number of coaching changes in 2007 that it would impact our federal graduation rate because we had a lot of movement of student-athletes in that year,” UNM athletics director Paul Krebs said. UNM has 74 percent in the NCAA’s Graduation Success Rate, which does include the transfer student factor, according to the release. It marks the fourth-straight year UNM reached a GSR of 74 percent or higher. The women’s basketball team, coached by Yvonne Sanchez, boasted a 100 percent GSR for the fourth straight year. Birmingham’s baseball team had a 73 percent rate while football had its second-highest rate at 58 percent. ~Compiled by J.R. Oppenheim

in the Associated Press Poll with one of the top quarterbacks in the conference in senior Derek Carr, who ranks sixth in the country in passing yards with 2,574 on the year, has a 69.0 completion percentage and has thrown 25 touchdowns to just four picks. The matchup against Fresno is a nightmare for UNM defensively, as the Lobos have one of the worst defenses in the country — No. 114, to be precise — giving up 480.7 yards per game on average. The Bulldogs have the seventh-best offense in the nation, gaining 524.6 yards per game. Carr torched the Lobos last year, and he would surely do the same this season. UNM would have to win in a shootout, and that’s highly unlikely. Just take a look back at the Lobos’ 56-42 loss to UNLV on Sept. 28. They were unstoppable in the first half, but after the Rebels made some second-half adjustments, UNM’s offense stalled out. Keep in

mind that Fresno has only allowed 145.7 rushing yards per game. Last year, the Lobos did take a 21-0 lead over the Bulldogs, but couldn’t hold on because they ran out of quarterbacks and Fresno figured out UNM’s defense, winning 49-32 at University Stadium. Regardless, that game will surely be a loss for UNM, giving the team a 5-6 record entering its next game at BSU on Nov. 30. The Broncos may or may not have starting senior signal-caller Joe Southwick back in time for that game because of a broken ankle that will keep him out for an undetermined amount of time, according to NBC Sports. If Southwick is out, that does strengthen the Lobos’ chances at a win, but junior quarterback Grant Hedrick filled in admirably for Southwick in BSU’s 34-17 win over Nevada on Oct 19. Hedrick was efficient against the Wolf Pack, completing 18 of

21 passes for 150 yards and a run for 115 yards with two scores. Mind you, it took a miraculous 25-point comeback for the Lobos to make last year’s game in Albuquerque interesting, but they ultimately came up short, losing 32-29. The way things look now, even with a backup quarterback starting for BSU, this would be another loss putting UNM at 5-7 to end its season and its bowl dreams. Of course, this is all hypothetical situation — the likelihood of UNM even reaching that point is low, as I stated earlier. This will mark another bowl season without the Lobos, and it doesn’t come as a surprise. Head coach Bob Davie keeps telling us about the progress this team has made, and it has made quite a few strides. To have Davie and the team’s success be placed on whether or not a bowl berth happens is ridiculous at this point in time.

list for the Bob Cousey Award for the third straight year on Tuesday. The award is named after former Boston Celtics legend Bob Cousy and honors the top men’s college point guard in the country. This also marks the fifth-straight year that a Lobo has been named to the list. Former Lobo Dairese Gary was named to the list in 2009 and 2010. In 2011, both Williams and guard Hugh Greenwood made the initial cut.

“He’s one of the best guards in the country,” Greenwood said. “We’re going to rely on him a lot this year and lead this team.” Two other Mountain West Conference players were named to the list as well in Boise State’s Derrick Marks and Utah State’s Preston Medlin. The list will be cut down to 20 in February, and the five finalists will be announced in March. Williams made it to the final 20 last season.

Nelson instructed his team to pick up their tempo. Playing fast and staying ahead was what the Lobos looked to improve on in the match. Freshman outside hitter Julia Warren dominated the right side for the Lobos. Of her 14 attempts, 10 came smashing off the hardwood. “Everyone was flowing today,” Warren said. “All in all, it was a good effort by everyone.” Warren was pleased by the team’s

sticking to the game plan and playing more quickly. She attributed the win to her team’s ability to work well together while picking up the pace offensively. “The tempo was really good today,” she said. “We are using this game to get better for the second half of the conference.” The Lobos travel to Las Vegas, Nev. Thursday to take on UNLV (12-8, 7-3 MWC).

did commit to UNM, he would have needed another scholarship to open up. The Lobos have only two seniors — Kendall Williams and Cameron Bairstow — and a player under scholarship would have needed to have his taken away, transferred or leave the program early in order to fit Cheatham onto the roster.

the closest set of the game. The team showed no signs of slowing down in the third set. All of Nevada’s errors were highlighted in the 25-12 blowout.   Nelson said the sweep over Nevada showcased the talent that the Lobos have in their outside hitters. “I thought our outsides really did the best job for us,” Nelson said. “Both the left and right side has terminated for us.”

The planets will align

Capricorn—Over the next week, think about what you might want to accomplish after the new moon on Sunday. With Mercury in retrograde, your thought processes will produce some innovative new ideas, though you shouldn’t consider yourself married to any one of them. Let anything that arises marinate in your mind until next week. For now, review is essential, especially when it comes to relationships. Try new approaches to recurring issues. Aquarius—This week, with the moon waning along with your clarity of thought, you may have trouble gaining perspective. Expect to be more prone to mood swings, but avoid repressing your emotions. In your most passionate moments, you can come to the point of the matter fairly quickly. You typically avoid such directness, but it will be to your advantage to jump to the heart of things. This doesn’t have to be brusque or rude. Pisces—The new moon this Sunday is one of the most potent points in this year, as it is also a solar eclipse. This, in conjunction with retrograde Mercury in transformative Scorpio, makes for an optimal healing moment in your life. Think about the beliefs and emotions you’ve been harboring that are holding you back. Any blockages keeping you from abundance, happiness or anything else you desire are all in your mind. Work toward removing them; take responsibility for them. Aries—Your passion may find a new, unexpected outlet in the next couple of weeks with retrograde Mercury in Scorpio. Keep in mind that what comes up may simply be a temporary burst of inspiration. Though you may easily be swept up in fantasy, remind yourself that this is only a thought, not a promise of a future reality. New ventures and commitments are ill advised until next week. Taurus—Life is expecting a bit more energy out of you these

Weekly Horoscopes by Alexandra Swanberg

days, and it is in your best interests not to drag you heels. The more you resist the demands of life, the tougher you make it to wash your hands of them. There is no time to procrastinate; time not spent on your goals should go toward rejuvenation and other forms of selfimprovement. Though it’s tough for now, keep your eyes on the very bright future you’re creating for yourself. Gemini—Expect to be in high demand this week, especially by your family members. It is important that you do all you can to help them out without neglecting your own needs. Strive for a sense of balance without being stingy with your resources. There will always be enough to go around. If you feel you are being drained by those depending on you, open up the conversation with those people. Avoid accusations; simply voice your needs, and know they’ll be met. Cancer—This is a good time to review the way you’ve been treating people, especially your family. You’ve been compelled to keep an emotional distance from those who care most about you in order to avoid dealing with some inner demons. Relief is as close as a heart-to-heart with those you’ve been avoiding, and you won’t find it in any other form. If you’re having trust issues, start out slow. The important thing is that you move forward in some way. Leo—You’ll realize fairly quickly this week that you can’t find happiness in other people or things. While they may provide comfort, which is important in moderation, they should never become a crutch. This week, take a look at each part of your life and figure out what you’re overly reliant upon. Find ways to empower yourself and find your strength. You are capable of more than you think you are. Virgo—Consider yourself especially lucky these days, as you’re one of the few who aren’t struggling

to tread water. This is a demanding time for everyone, but you’re adept at finding the best outlet for this energy. This week will be like a strong wave that you have to stay on top of and ride out. However, the aim is to do your best, to test your limits. If you fail in some way, it’s important that you recognize what you learned about yourself rather than focusing on what you did or did not do. Libra—Lately, you’ve had so much on your mind that you’re not even sure where to start in sorting it all out. Keep your cool; there is no reason to panic, and it’s much simpler than you’re making it out to be. You’ll feel much better the moment you get of your chest everything that is bothering you. The problems will resolve themselves naturally. For now, journaling, free-writing, anything creative that will relieve you of your thoughts is best. At the least, find a friend who doesn’t mind hearing out a rant. Scorpio—Be sure to tend to the relationship you have with yourself, even if you think you’re doing just fine. The Sun recently moved into your sign, as well as Mercury, which is now in retrograde motion. This all prompts you to take a deep look within, to see yourself like never before. It is the best time to reverse negative thoughts about yourself, which translates into more positive feelings toward others. Sagittarius—This is going to be a very odd week for you, as you flip-flop sporadically between pure self-assurance and the pains of self-doubt. It may seem at times that your heart is playing tricks on you, but that is the nature of Scorpio, the intense sign that the Sun and Mercury are occupying. Until this passes, you might take more quiet alone time than you typically care for. Take care of basic matters, and look for pleasure in the simple things in life. This will keep you grounded.

The Independent Student Voice of UNM since 1895


The running back on top Sergio Jiménez / @SXfoto/ Daily Lobo Running back Kasey Carrier watches his teammates from the sidelines during the game against Utah State at University Stadium on Oct. 19. Carrier has rushed for 2,327 rushing yards and 24 rushing touchdowns since being named UNM’s starting running back in 2012.

by Thomas Romero-Salas @ThomasRomeroS

All Kasey Carrier needed was a chance to show he could be the starting running back for the New Mexico football team. For three years under former head coach Mike Locksley, Carrier was denied that opportunity and instead split time with other halfbacks in the backfield. Carrier was never touted as a back who could carry an offense. “I was never the starting running back here or the number-one back coming out of camp under our old coaching staff,” he said. “It wasn’t until we had a change in coaches that I knew I had a chance to be the back I could be.”

Carrier headed into the 2012 season coming off a year in which he didn’t play a down thanks to a knee and ankle injury that he suffered during fall camp. Even with a year on the bench due to injury and a new coaching staff, Carrier said he was still confident that one day he would be named the starter. “I felt like every year I was going to be the starter,” he said. “‘Next year will be my year’ — but I was never named the starter; it didn’t happen until 2012.” To say that head coach Bob Davie made the right decision last year in naming Carrier the starter would be an understatement. Since being named UNM’s starting running back in 2012, Carrier has rushed for 2,327 yards and scored

24 rushing touchdowns. He also broke UNM’s single-season rushing record with 1,496 yards last season. DonTrell Moore set the old record of 1,450 in 2003. There weren’t many bright spots in UNM’s 45-10 loss to Utah State on Oct. 19, but Carrier did enter to become the Lobo’s fifth all-time leading rusher, passing Fred Henry, who played from 1970-72. For his career, Carrier has rushed 2,969 yards and needs only 363 more to pass Winslow Oliver for fourth place. “That means a lot,” Carrier said. “That definitely wasn’t something that I thought was going to happen in one point of my career here. For it to happen means a lot to me being up there with those guys.” Davie said Carrier is definitely

deserving of having his name up there with the other Lobo greats. “I feel like Kasey Carrier is a better back than he was last year at this time,” Davie said. “It has been frustrating for Kasey for some games, but he hasn’t shown that frustration. For him to just be in there at the end against Utah State shows what kind of guy Kasey Carrier is.” Recruiting Several recruiting sites show that the Lobos don’t have a commitment for the 2014 season. Davie said that not having a commit doesn’t bother him. “You really do have to let the dust settle, and I’ve never been one to offer those early (scholarships),” Davie said. “I’d rather wait and be more conservative.

It’s not one bit of a concern.” All of the coaches went out recruiting between Thursday and Sunday. Davie said the coaches’ main focuses were Texas, California and the Midwest. Talking about practice The Lobos had just three days of practice during their bye week. Davie said some players practiced about 50 minutes if their snap count was over 300 plays for the year. He added that those who were over 300 snaps finished the practice session with strength and conditioning coach Ben Hilgart. “I just think that you have to be really smart,” Davie said. “Those guys over 300 snaps have to get some rest.”

Chantale Riddle prepares to enter the match against Nevada at Johnson Gym on Saturday. UNM (17-4, 7-3 MWC) achieved its 10th sweep of the season over the weekend. Sergio Jiménez @SXfoto Daily Lobo

The New Mexico volleyball team achieved its 10th sweep of the season Saturday during the annual Dig Pink match. Going into the game, head coach Jeff Nelson wanted his team to dominate from the start, and not allow Nevada (2-20, 0-10 MWC) a chance to come back. The Lobos accomplished just that, winning each set by at least nine points. “We did a better job with the ball,” Nelson said. “We got 10 blocks, which is really solid for a 3-set match.” UNM (17-4, 7-3 MWC) had its highest hitting percentage of the year in front of 1,537 fans, the majority of whom wore bright pink shirts in support of breast

cancer awareness. Nelson said he was impressed with the play of his team’s freshmen throughout the game. The first match set the tone for UNM. Nevada was unable to get anything going offensively, hitting for a negative percentage. The Lobos, on the other hand, didn’t have any offense issues in the first match. They were able to pass the ball well and place it on the other team’s side of the net. UNM held on to an early lead and won the first set 25-11. The second set went just as smoothly. UNM showed off its hustling ability, especially on the defensive side of the ball in the second set. When plays would break down for Nevada, UNM made them pay for it. The Lobos cruised through the second set with a 25-16 victory,
