UNM strives to simplify rape reporting process By Jonathan Baca
The University is taking steps to simplify the resources and reporting process for sexual assault victims on campus, in response to an internal assessment that found the process confusing.
UNM’s Sexual Assault and Awareness Task Force is working with the Provost’s office and Dean of Students office on “coordinating and streamlining the University’s efforts to combat sexual violence on campus,” according to a press release. “There are too many options, too
many places to go, too many people,” said UNM President Bob Frank. “You get good help at all those places, but they don’t always lead to the same channels, and it can lead to problems for both victims and people who get accused of being involved in these kinds of events. We’re working on
it, and we hope to have significant progress here in the near future.” Adding to UNM’s comprehensive response to sexual assault, called LoboRESPECT, Dean of Students Tomas Aguirre is leading efforts to implement a new model called CARE — Compliance, Advocacy,
mile (4:50.22) and the 800-meter race (2:11.52). Junior Sophie Connor earned third in the mile with a time of 4:52.64, and senior Tamara Armoush was fourth (4:53.05). Silva said the wins were that much more satisfying after having dealt with numerous leg injuries throughout her career at UNM. “It’s honestly extremely rewarding to be able to accomplish this in what is my last season,” Silva said. “I’ve been competing for quite some time, and I’ve dealt with so many injuries in the past. Just to be able to contribute points and be a part of this is so amazing.” The Lobos almost had two athletes win multiple championships, but Van Grinsven came up short in the 60-meter hurdles, losing by just .03 seconds to San Diego State’s Micha Auzenne (8.21). Van Grinsven rebounded by winning
the 400-meter dash, clocking in at 54.69. However, the final results were delayed for about an hour because Van Grinsven and another runner bumped during the final turn, forcing a review of what happened. “That happens a lot of the time when you do a cut in. It just gets a little messy sometimes,” Van Grinsven said. “Sometimes you have some pushing and shoving, so I wasn’t about to get pushed around. I gave a little back, which caused a little bit of controversy.” The other two individual winners for the women were redshirt freshman distance runner Alice Wright in the 5,000 meters (16:31.85) and senior sprinter/jumper Aasha Marler in the triple jump (12.84 meters). The team composed of redshirt senior Nicola Hood, sophomore Kelsi Lewis, junior Emily Hosker-Thornhill and senior

Men and women seize the MWC Both teams outpace the competition for second-straight sweep of conference By Thomas Romero-Salas The New Mexico men’s and women’s track and field teams maintained their dominance of the Mountain West Conference this weekend, sweeping the indoor conference titles for the second consecutive year. The men held off Colorado State on Saturday to win the team’s third straight MW championship. The Lobos finished with 160 points, while the Rams had 140 for second place. For the women, the road to a repeat was much easier, as they won the meet by 53 points (149- 96) over runner-up CSU. “It just means the world to all of us, especially having it at home,” junior sprinter Holly Van Grinsven said. “It just makes it so much worth it because all your family and friends came to see all the hard work you put in. That’s most rewarding because you put so much time and energy, sweat and tears into this track, and to win it on this track is an incredible feeling.” As a team, the women had four individuals and one relay team claim gold over the three-day meet. Redshirt senior distance runner Sammy Silva was the only woman to claim two titles, as she won the

Statistics prof. promotes contra as positive pastime By Matthew Reisen
Many know New Mexico for its unique culture, but one UNM professor is trying to generate local popularity for a certain dance with an English flair. Erik Erhardt, president of FolkMADS and a professor of statistics, said contra dances have been held in the SUB since September and will continue into the foreseeable future.
Contra dance is an American folk dance that has evolved from English country-dance, like those typically seen in “Pride and Prejudice”-style movies, he said. Newcomers are highly encouraged, with lessons for beginners starting at 7 p.m. and the actual dance running from 7:30 to 10:30 p.m., he said. FolkMADS is a folk music and dance society that has been in New Mexico for about 30 years, he said. Erhardt has been involved with
FolkMADS and contra dance for eight years, serving on the board of directors numerous times before becoming president of the organization, he said. “We’re very welcoming to beginners. You don’t really need to know anything other than how to walk and hold hands,” he said. “If we can get people exposed to contra dance here, we believe that they are going to love it and that we’ll soon grow very quickly”
The dance is performed in two long lines, hence the word “contra” or “across” in the name, Erhardt said. There are three main components of a contra dance: the live band, the caller and the dancers. The band usually plays old time, “fast, energetic fiddle and banjo” music. “The caller serves as the interface between the band and getting the music and rhythm to the dancers’ feet,” Erhardt said. The job is “usually done by an already experienced
contra dancer who is familiar with the methodology.” Erhardt, an experienced caller himself, started a “Callers Collective” last year. The group allows burgeoning contra dancers to learn how to call and even compose dances during the events, he said. Emily Ruch, vice president at FolkMADS and a caller in training herself, has been involved with FolkMADS for about a year. She

Do you think racism is still a problem? Julie Kim
“Not particularly here. I am from New Jersey, but I see some of that there. People do not appreciate other cultures, I guess, and they think they are the best.”
“Yes, because people aren’t used to what’s different. Not everyone likes what is different.”
Israel Milla freshman chemical engineering “Yeah, I do. Not only is it a problem here in the United States, it is everywhere around the world because we are always fighting. It is the things we do. Not only here in the United States with the border and stuff, but also — I am not only talking about South America, I am talking about other countries in the world. Racism sets a prejudice. People think that Muslim people are terrorists. That is also why I think racism is a problem: because it sets a standard.”

“Of course it is, because it’s all over the world. I mean, there will always be a problem. Racism is always going to be around. You can see that we are still sort of fighting (against) it: there are groups that set up events, meetings to talk about it. Yeah, I think there is still a problem — we can always be there to fight against it, to help out.”
“Honestly, I myself have not seen racism personally. For me I am undecided. If I went off of my own experiences, I would say no. But my friends — I have many friends who are not white and they tell me it is still a problem. There are many recourses (for racism), so I feel like it would be very hard for an employer to practice racism. In everyday life it seems it would be easy to defeat racism.”

Each part of the CARE model will be led by different departments and members of the Sexual Misconduct and Assault Response Team, or SMART. Heather Cowan, manager for the Office of Equal Opportunity, will head up the compliance aspects, which include University rules and regulations relating to sexual assault, as well as Title IX and some Cleary Act compliance standards, according to the release. The advocacy side, which deals with the support and advocacy for victims, as well as training and outreach, will be lead by Summer Little, director of the Women’s Resource Center. The SMART team will also fall under the umbrella of Advocacy. UNMPD will lead the charge on the response aspect, with Police Chief Kevin McCabe overseeing
the reporting, police response and investigations of sexual assault cases, according to the release. The education group will have two leaders: Employee and Organizational Development manager Deb Howard and Debbie Morris, director of Student Activities. Aguirre said this new model is an outgrowth of several existing committees and groups, like the CommUNITY Council, The Presidential Task Force on Sexual Violence and the Hazing Work Group. These groups will continue to work on the issues, he said. “None of these previous efforts has disappeared,” Aguirre said. “They have simply evolved into this current, more comprehensive model.” In addition to the CARE model, Aguirre has also helped to create the LoboRESPECT Student Team, which
will be solely comprised of students and will help with education through the creation of pamphlets and social media campaigns. Both the undergraduate and graduate student governments are already involved with LoboRESPECT, so this group will be solely for students not involved with ASUNM or GPSA, the release stated. “The student group will help reach students by creating resources such as campaigns and brochures that they directly relate to,” said Leonel Diaz, contact person for the group. “We’ll be putting together a peer education network, as well.” Dianne Anderson, director of communications for UNM, said student involvement in creating educational material is important, because it will lead to more authentic and approachable communication. “What they’re wanting to do is to
try to make sure that the materials and the approach we use is actually one that is going to reach students. So who better knows how to talk to students than students?” Anderson said. “We old folks don’t always have the right language to reach you guys.” Although no timetable has been announced for when the University will address all the concerns brought up in the internal audit, Frank said it is important that everyone be proactive and address as many problems as possible, as the U.S. Department of Justice conducts its comprehensive investigation of the issue. “Are we where we want to be? No, we have a ways to go,” Frank said. “But I think we’re doing things that are making people be able to lead more independent lives, to not have to be so fearful. So I think that’s a very important step.”

“There’s something so satisfying about dancing this really intricate pattern in such a fluid way, where everything just works,” Ruch said. “There is an infinite number of ways that you can combine all of these different moves into these new patterns, and the patterns are beautiful.” Erhardt said there is no dress code, but many dancers wear “spinny-skirts” for effect when they twirl, which happens often. “Contra dance has given me an easy way to connect quickly with people where I live, and also when I travel. I know that if I go somewhere I can find the contra dance and immediately have a bunch of friends,” Erhardt said. “Almost all of my close, meaningful relationships in the last fifteen years have come through friends I’ve met through dance. That’s
the sort of quality of connection that the contra dance provides.” Erhardt said FolkMADS holds its own annual dance camp in Socorro over Memorial Day weekend, called “FolkMADness,” which draws between 200 to 300 people every year. FolkMADness offers not only contra, but also square dance, English country-dance, singing and even music jams for musicians, he said. Currently, FolkMADS has to rent out space at the SUB for its monthly UNM contra, causing them to lose money in the long run, but Erhardt said he hopes that with the start of a student organization they can save more and put those profits into growing the organization. They need enthusiastic UNM students to jump on board with the idea of getting a student group started to make that happen, he
said. FolkMADS is now working with student groups such as HAPPI and the Celtic Society, trying to create joint-sponsored events in hopes of drawing support at UNM. “My vision is to put the energy in now and get it started — to have a student group form and then have the students blossom and it become its own thing,” he said. Contra dances are held on the second floor of the SUB in the South Mall, and so far attendance has been growing, with between 30 to 50 people attending each event.
The Contra dances held outside UNM cost $9 for FolkMADS nonmembers, and $8 for members, with any student-attendees paying half-price. To be a member of FolkMADS requires an annual payment of $15. The UNM contra is free to all UNM students and faculty. For non-students, there is a $5 fee and $4 for FolkMADS members. Students can find UNM contra on the second floor of the SUB on March 27, April 10 and May 1. Go to folkmads.org for more information.

said introducing contra to UNM is largely about trying to create a more cross-generational community with younger dancers. “It is probably the most forgiving social dance you can do because you don’t have to come up with improvised steps as you’re dancing, you just have to listen to what the caller is telling you to do,” she said. “It’s very friendly for people who have no idea how to dance at all.” Contra dance emphasizes the importance of physical contact and eye contact, she said — something we are somewhat starved of as a culture in this day and age. This fluid structure of contra dance is centered on a series of transformations on the floor where different sets of people move to different locations in time with the music and caller’s instruction, she said.

Hollywood Liberals’ dissent has limits By Joel Schlosberg During the 87th Academy Awards ceremony on Feb. 22, films about Martin Luther King Jr. and whistleblower Edward Snowden, “Selma” and “Citizenfour,” received statuettes for, respectively, Best Original Song and Best Documentary Feature. But the shutting out of “Selma” from other Oscars because of industry backlash against its less-than-fully-idealized portrayal of former-U.S. President Lyndon B. Johnson and host Neil Patrick Harris’s quip that “Edward Snowden couldn’t be here for some treason,” made clear the limits of Hollywood liberal tolerance for dissent. To update Phil Ochs’ classic indictment: “I cried when they shot Martin Luther King Jr., but Edward Snowden got what was coming. So love me, I’m a liberal.” Harris might have been tongue-in-cheek, but imagine if he’d made the same remark about a surviving but jailed 86-year-old King. And if he didn’t intend it as political, that merely shows what sort of political assumptions Hollywood takes for granted. For instance, that the very existence of the National Security Agency is not infinitely more a betrayal of American ideals than Snowden’s exposure of its secrets. In fact, the NSA helped implement the federal government’s surveillance of King as portrayed in “Selma.” Another dissident subject of an Oscarwinning film (“Karl Hess: Toward Liberty,” Best Documentary Short Subject) observed in his autobiography “Mostly on the Edge” that “the support of big business flowed naturally to Lyndon Johnson, who knew how to wheel and deal with corporations that felt they had the right to be treated as virtually a fourth branch of government.” As exemplified by Hollywood’s ties to mostly-Democratic administrations, e.g. Jack Valenti’s move from LBJ’s personal aide to head of the Motion Picture Association of America. In his acceptance speech at the 53rd Oscars, “Karl Hess: Toward Liberty” co-director Roland Halle contended that “(Hess’) ideas on how (to) take control of one’s life, I think, can map our route toward liberty, and liberty is all this country’s about.” With his statement that “the really American revolution would be to destroy power,” Hess’s notion of what “this country’s about” clearly differed from identifying it with the covert functioning of the NSA. Its documentation of Hess’ journey, from his expulsion from the top ranks of the Republican Party to his pioneering of solar power and other decentralized ecological technologies — all without ever being a liberal, Hollywood or otherwise — offers prescient lessons for bringing liberty to a post-NSA America.

News briefs from around New Mexico Judge ousted, banned from bench for life
Don’t worry... it kinda looks like you’re taking notes.
ESPANOLA — A former Rio Arriba County judge, who is accused of several infractions that include representing clients in district court while sitting on the bench, agreed to never again seek a judicial seat. The New Mexico Supreme Court accepted a Judicial Standards Commission stipulation that permanently bans ousted Judge Rudy Martin from seeking any judicial office. The agreement came after an investigation revealed Martin, 62, represented a client in front of a former district court judge. He is also accused of failing to withdraw from 15 other cases, accepting a guilty plea from a minor and sentencing him to six months unsupervised probation and failing to provide an interpreter for a Spanish-speaking client and instead conducting proceedings entirely in Spanish, according the Stipulation the New Mexico Judicial Standards Commission drafted. — Rio Grande Sun, Española
LOVINGTON — The Lea Theater is getting closer to completion now that $100,000 in state money will be disbursed and a fundraiser will be set up for May. The event planned would be a gala-type event with a wine tasting event, silent auction and dining. “Our plan is to raise $150,000,” said Lea County Foundation of the Arts Director Connie Sevier. “We contacted the Cottonwood Winery in Artesia and they were more than happy to contribute to this without cost to us. We will have commemorative wine glasses for those that purchase tickets for the events.” City manager James Williams said that although the city bans alcohol in city-owned buildings, since the theater is leased to the foundation no policy infractions would be caused by the event. Sevier also said there would be auctions of unique movie posters that the foundation would ask the highest bidder to donate back to the theater to display with a plaque

New data analyzed by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention reveal a slight decrease in the prevalence of selfreported obesity among New Mexico adults in 2013 over the year before. New Mexico is one of only 14 U.S. States and territories to report a decrease.

1 Nicole Roberts won the women’s distance medley in 11:48.59. “To have some of the performances that we had today is unbelievable,” head coach Joe Franklin said. As for the men, UNM earned five individual titles on the day. The Lobos were led by senior distance runner Adam Bitchell, who won the 3,000 meters on Saturday with a time of 8:11.05 and the 5,000 meters on Thursday, coming in at 14:30.17. Junior sprinter Ridge Jones made history by breaking a UNM and Mountain West record in the 60-meter dash with a time of 6.60 seconds. “I took everything that I was lacking in the prelims and prevailed in the finals. That helped me out a lot,” Jones said. Franklin said the key for the men winning the championship was the mile run. UNM took four of the top five spots: junior Elmar Engholm won the event in 4:10.13, senior Ross Matheson was runner-up (4:10.53), Bitchell earned bronze (4:10.63) and junior Graham Thomas was fifth (4:12.84). “It’s one of those days that we had everything happen right,” Franklin said. “The mile started it rolling, and it literally snowballed.” On the field, redshirt senior jumper Django Lovett won the high jump with a mark of 2.14 meters. Senior Warrick Campbell took first in the triple jump with a leap of 15.67 meters. Franklin became the first coach in conference history to win the men’s and women’s MW Coach of the Year in back-to-back seasons. Thomas Romero-Salas is the sports editor for the Daily Lobo.

Lobos dominate despite early error By Thomas Romero-Salas
The New Mexico baseball team fell into an early 3-0 hole, but climbed back up to win 9-3 over Utah Valley at Lobo Field on Sunday. Senior starting pitcher Colton Thomson earned his first win of the season after giving up three unearned runs on three hits in six innings. He struck out eight batters and walked three. “I thought I was a little wild today. I picked it up later in the innings,” Thomson said. “I didn’t get ahead of batters; it was an average outing. It’s something to build off and keep working for.” The second inning was the only one in which Thomson found himself in trouble. After a strike out and picking off a runner at first, a routine grounder by the Wolverines’ Greyson Bogden turned into an error when UNM freshman third baseman Carl Stajduhar mishandled the ball. With the bases loaded and two outs, Thomson allowed a threerun triple by UVU’s Kade Andrus to give the Wolverines a 3-0 lead.
Thomson got the next batter to ground out to end the inning. “There’s not much you could do; my infield has been good behind me all year,” Thomson said. “They hit my one mistake, and you got to live with it. We won that game, that’s all that matters.” UNM (7-2) didn’t answer until the fourth inning, when sophomore left fielder Danny Collier hit a two RBI double down the right field line to tie the game at three. Sophomore first baseman Jack Zoellner smacked a one-run single earlier in the inning. In the sixth inning, the Lobos took the lead for good with an RBI triple by senior center fielder Aaron Siple for a 4-3 edge. The Lobos added five more runs across the seventh and eighth innings for the 9-3 victory. Utah Valley (2-8) never threatened to retake the lead during the final three frames. Junior shortstop Dalton Bowers broke out of his season-long hitting slump that saw his batting average dip to .077. Bowers went 2-4 for his first multiple-hit game of the year. “Coach (Birmingham) just said

Sophomore ﬁrst baseman Jack Zoellner slides to tag out Utah Valley’s runner on Sunday. The Lobos won 9-3.
I was really close and it was a matter of time that they started to fall where they needed to,” Bowers said. “It was just a matter of time that I started to come through when I needed to.” Utah Valley starting pitcher Patrick Wolfe went just four innings, allowing three earned runs on three hits. Reliever Jake Mayer was the most effective pitcher against UNM,
giving up one earned run on two hits in two innings. UNM Relief pitchers freshman Tyler Stevens, junior Alex Estrella and freshman Hayden Schilling combined to permit three hits in three innings of work. On Saturday UNM defeated San Francisco 4-3 by overcoming a tworun deficit in the bottom of the ninth.

Winless February ends By Kyle Tomasi
The month of February has come to a close, and New Mexico will likely be glad to see the flip of the calendar. UNM concluded a winless month of basketball on Saturday with a 59-55 loss at Fresno State. New Mexico has not won since Jan. 31, marking the team’s longest losing streak since the 1959 season. “It’s one of those things that’s like a broken record,” said head coach Craig Neal in a press release. “It’s frustrating, and nobody feels the pain worse than I do.” With the loss, the Lobos are guaranteed a spot in the playin round of the Mountain West Conference Tournament, the highest possible seed being at No. 7. New Mexico fell into a deep hole against Fresno and couldn’t overcome the large first-half deficit. The Bulldogs led 30-8 with 7:29 remaining in the first half. The Lobos made a late-half
push that cut the first-half deficit to a mere seven points. After a 17-2 run, UNM was in much better shape heading into halftime after its dreadful start. “I thought our kids played with passion, except for the first eight minutes,” Neal said in the release. “You can’t let them get out to a 30-8 lead. They scored 30 in the first eight minutes and then they scored 29 points the rest of the way. They (Lobos) showed a lot of fight; they never one time gave in.” UNM (14-15, 6-11 Mountain West) kept clawing back to begin the second half, but never came closer than two points (35-33 with 16:10 remaining in second half ). After a free throw by senior guard Deshawn Delaney with one minute remaining in the game, the Lobos cut the lead to 55-53 and had a chance to tie or win the game, but a turnover by senior guard Hugh Greenwood with 15 seconds remaining sealed the deal for the
Bulldogs (14-15, 9-7 MW). The Lobos shot 41.5 percent (22-53) from the floor and a dismal 12.5 percent (1-8) from behind the 3-point line. Delaney led all scorers with 15 points, five rebounds and three assists, and sophomore center Obij Aget recorded a double-double with 13 points and 12 rebounds. He also recorded four blocks. The Lobos made 7 of 12 free throws in the second half, 10 of 16 overall, but struggled to knock down clutch shots from the charity stripe late in the game. “Free throws are very, very important, and if you can’t shoot 80 percent down the stretch, you are going to have a hard time winning,” Neal said. “We can’t continue to shoot 60 percent from the foul line.” Kyle Tomasi is a sports reporter for the Daily Lobo.

Historic win puts Lobos second in MW By Liam Cary-Eaves Rewriting the history books was not an easy task for New Mexico during an emotional 63-60 victory over Fresno State on Saturday at WisePies Arena. Once the final buzzer blew, this year’s Lobo squad became the first in program history to collect 13 Mountain West wins. Head coach Yvonne Sanchez, whose contract is up for renewal, said she cannot take sole credit for the team’s success. “I know a lot of times when good things happen, it’s easy to just see this head coach and put a bunch of praise on it,” Sanchez said. “This team has done everything we’ve asked them to do. They want to win and they want to play hard.” The victory pulled UNM within a halfgame of first-place Colorado State, which was idle on Saturday. The Lobos will finish in at least the top three with just one game remaining on the season. Redshirt senior guard Antiesha Brown made her case to become an elite member of New Mexico women’s basketball history. She became the 19th member of UNM’s 1,000-point club after hitting a free throw early in the second half. “It was a great moment, but it’s all the bigger picture,” Brown said. “I’d love to leave my stamp on the UNM history as the 19th person to reach that mark but, like I said before, we have such a special team this year that (winning the Mountain West Tournament) is the star in the sky we’re shooting for.” New Mexico needed a lot more from Brown following her induction to the UNM history books, and Sanchez praised Brown for her efforts. “We haven’t had someone like her in a long time in this program,” Sanchez said. “Being a local kid from New Mexico and doing what she’s done in the last two and a half years … she deserves every good thing that comes to her.” The game between the Lobos (17-11, 13-4 MW) and the Bulldogs had the feel of a contest with second-place implications. The scrappy and physical battle wasn’t decided until the final whistle. UNM guard Cherise Beynon was a major contributor during the Lobos’ final home game of the season, collecting eight rebounds and tallying 12 points.

New Mexico senior guard Antiesha Brown, center, is embraced by teammates after Saturday’s final home game against Fresno State at WisePies Arena. Brown led the Lobos with 21 points, surpassing her 1,000-point career mark.
Although the freshman acknowledged the magnitude of the game, she said the hunger for more does not end with UNM’s final game on Friday. “It means a lot to come in and make a big impact as only a freshman,” Beynon said. “I just want to keep going on from here and go into the Mountain West Tournament and make history there as well.” New Mexico jumped out to a 20-12 lead with 8:18 left in the first half. The early deficit didn’t discourage the Bulldogs (19-8, 11-5 MW), who came back to tie the game at 25. UNM hit a free throw in the half’s closing seconds and trotted into the locker room with only a 26-25 lead. Neither team thereafter generated a larger
lead than the Lobos’ eight-point advantage in the first half. Fresno forward Alex Sheedy took control of the second half, collecting 13 of her 17 points in the latter portion of the contest. She led her squad to a five-point lead with just under nine minutes to play in the contest. That was plenty of time for Brown, who was also playing her final half in WisePies Arena. “I knew at one point or another she was going to take over,” Sanchez said. “She wanted to take over, and I don’t blame her and I don’t blame (head coach) Jaime (White). I mean, that’s your best player.” Brown went on a five-point run to tie the game single-handedly at 48-48 with 5:30 left on the game clock.
Brown collected six more points down the stretch, including a perfect 4-4 from the charity stripe to collect the game-high 21 points. Brown said making free throws late in the game became a focus for her following two late misses in UNM’s tight 70-65 homeopening loss to Stanford on Nov. 24. “I wanted to be the one to knock down those free throws and be the senior for my team,” Brown said. “I’m not going to say I choked in the Stanford game, but I was not as prepared or experienced as I am today.” Liam Cary-Eaves is the assistant sports editor at the Daily Lobo.
