Candidates figure scholarship fixes by Chloe Henson Three of the five Democratic primary candidates said they support using other sources of funding to subsidize the Legislative Lottery Scholarship. Lawrence Rael, Linda Lopez, Howie Morales, Alan Webber and Gary King participated in a debate in Las Cruces on Thursday. The five contenders will be on the ballot on June 3 as primary candidates for governor of New Mexico. This academic year, the scholarship fund fell short of covering tuition for students, and at the beginning of the spring semester UNM had to pay a portion of each student’s scholarship. The University expected the state government to allocate money to make up the deficit during the legislative session. When asked about a permanent solution to the scholarship,

Rael, King and Lopez said they would be willing to look at other sources of funding to support the program. “We may have to change the name and not call it the Lottery Scholarship anymore,” King said. “I think that we need to make sure that we’re willing to spend general fund money if we have to, and we have income streams that come from our natural resources in New Mexico.” Rather than allowing the Lottery Scholarship to drive up costs of higher education, Webber said the government needs to find a way to the cap increasing expenses. There also needs to be more options for higher education outside of four-year college degrees, Webber said. “(Some students) end up in a situation where they are taught

Voters to decide APD, AFD chief procedure by Chloe Henson

Di-Linh Hoang / Daily Lobo Albuquerque City Council Vice-President Trudy Jones, right, speaks with Diane Gibson from District 7 at a city council meeting on May 19. The council voted to allow Albuquerque residents the opportunity to decide if council members should have final say on future APD and AFD chiefs.

Voters will determine whether Mayor Berry will require the City Council’s approval when hiring a new police chief. The legislation that would put the question on the November ballot passed 7-2 at the May 19 Council meeting, said Ken Sanchez, Council president and co-sponsor of the legislation. If voters approve the proposal during the general election in November, the Council’s advice and consent will be required for the appointment of Albuquerque police chief and fire chief. It is vitally important that the Albuquerque community be able to vote on the initiative, Sanchez said. An amendment by Councilor Isaac Benton would also allow the Council to remove the chief with a two-thirds vote, Sanchez said. “We’ve heard from the public now for over four years on wanting to see change in the Albuquerque Police

Department,” he said. “We have an opportunity here to give the public that opportunity.” Brad Winter, a council member who co-sponsored the legislation, said he could not approve of the bill because of the amendment that would allow the Council to fire the chief with a two-thirds vote. “I don’t agree with that part; it changed the whole intent of what I had in mind when we started,” he said. Council Vice President Trudy Jones also voted against the bill. The Council rejected a similar measure that would allow voters to decide whether the chief of police should be elected by the Albuquerque community. Councilor Rey Garduño, who sponsored the bill, was the only affirming vote. Not all discussions about APD were so easily resolved at the meeting. The council postponed legislation that would eliminate the

Donation aims to energize New Mexico researchers by Zach Pavlik

William Aranda / Daily Lobo / @_WilliamAranda Dr. Michael E. Coltrin of Sandia National Labs gives a keynote speech to members of New Mexico’s Experimental Program to Stimulate Competitive Research during a NM EPSCoR meeting at the Science and Technology Park Rotunda on Tuesday afternoon. Members gave presentations to update others on the the EPSCoR-funded research project, “Energize New Mexico.”

Universities in New Mexico will receive $16 million over the next four years in a bid to permanently increase research funds in the state. The Experimental Program to Stimulate Competitive Research is donating the money for universities to focus on research in sustainable energy, said Mary Jo Daniel, Associate Director of the EPSCoR state office. She said the initiative, Energize New Mexico, will help increase the state’s capacity for research. The goal is to make the project fully collaborative across the various institutions in the state, said Daniels. Those directly

enjoying the resources brought by the funding are all faculty and students of New Mexico universities, but scientists and professionals from other labs and research facilities, such as Sandia National Labs, often serve as mentors to students and supply intellectual support, she said. Natalie Willoughby, EPSCoR’s public relations specialist, said UNM is not the only university in the state involved in the initiative, but that the University plays a unique and vital role in the program’s execution. “UNM is not only our kind of house, where we get paid from and we have our state office, but we also work with several

different departments and UNM and faculty members, including biology and economics, as part of some of the science components of the project,” Willoughby said. Alexandria Bazan, who graduated this spring with a degree in political science and environmental science, said she was first hired by EPSCoR as a student employee before she moved into a group focusing their research on the geothermal aspects of the sustainable energy initiative. Working with EPSCoR was an experience that allowed her to branch out and realize the scope

to believe that higher ed is the solution to their problems, and in fact that isn’t always the case,” he said. Morales said he supported more higher education opportunities. There should also be stricter language regarding tax law for tobacco companies to increase revenue for the scholarship, he said. “We need to make sure that we tighten the language, and that we have a language where tobacco companies have to pay the state of New Mexico the dollars that we are due,” he said. In March the governor signed

into law a short-term solvency for the Lottery scholarship. The bill allowed for the state to appropriate $11 million from the general fund and $18.5 million from liquor excise tax revenues to the lottery tuition fund. The bill also increased scholarship students’ required credit hours from 12 to 15. Students still need a 2.5 GPA to maintain their tuition scholarships. While the state was able to reach an agreement on Lottery Scholarship solvency, the bill doesn’t offer a longterm solution.

Police Oversight Commission. One bill, sponsored by Garduño and Winter, would abolish the POC on Dec. 31, and would replace it with a Civilian Police Oversight Agency. A second bill, sponsored by Benton and Sanchez, would immediately suspend the commission, pending the establishment of new oversight. Garduño and Benton

moved to postpone their legislation until the next meeting on June 2, in order to allow time for discussion among community members. Earlier in the meeting, Scott Greenwood, a civil rights attorney, said civilian oversight is a critical component of police reform. But there will later be recommendations regarding oversight

Expenditures for the scholarship have been steadily increasing, while revenue from lottery ticket sales have remained stable, according to a report by Think New Mexico, an independent statewide think tank. The average tuition at public, four-year colleges in New Mexico increased by about $1,214 from Fiscal Year 2008 to FY14, according to a study by the Center on Budget and Policy Priorities. This corresponds with a $4,588 per-student decrease in state spending on higher education.

A senate bill passed during the 2013 legislative session distributes 25 percent of the money from the tobacco settlement fund to the lottery tuition fund. Neither Webber nor Morales commented on whether they would support using other sources to fund the Lottery scholarship.

resulting from negotiations between the Department of Justice and the city, he said. “I would urge you not to, prospectively, put some things in place that might be harder to undo,” he said. The city hired Greenwood and Tom Streicher, former chief of the Cincinnati Police Department, to negotiate on its behalf with the DOJ on APD reform.

Greenwood said he and Streicher expect a draft soon about what an agreement would look like between the DOJ and the city.

of her interests, Bazan said. “As far as student employee part, it really gave me an outlet to network and get to know people within my field and within my department to find research opportunities,” Bazan said. “As far as the geothermal component, this was the first time I was able to see the whole team, and it was really cool to see where I can go from here, since I just graduated.” Bazan said her involvement in the initiative was crucial to her pursuit of a career in a Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics field. “It’s absolutely piqued

my interest and encouraged me to keep going and seek jobs within STEM and further education within the STEM field,” Bazan said, “It has opened my eyes to what you can do with a STEM education.” EPSCoR is a branch of the National Science Foundation meant to help supply funding to states with smaller populations or research capabilities, Daniel said. She said EPSCoR acts as an intermediate step, and the end goal is for New Mexico to, through this financial help, be able to receive primary funding from NSF.

“EPSCoR acts as a catalyst,” Daniel said, “The idea is (researchers) are getting a lot of equipment, training a lot of graduate students, and as they get a foundation they can be much more competitive writing proposals because they have the people and the equipment to do more work.” New Mexico became an EPSCoR state in 2001, and it has already seen an increase in the amount of research funding received and researchers involved in it, she said. Willoughby said the EPSCoR research initiatives

are great opportunities for students to get involved, make connections and get some experience under their belts. “Not only make connections, but learn how to do presentations, how to publish your work, learn how to work with younger students and teach them how to work in the field,” she said. “In this project especially we’re focusing on collaboration.” Zach Pavlik is assistant news editor at the Daily Lobo.

Healing horse program helps special needs kids by Stephen Montoya

“I go home every night on this huge high … I just feel like the luckiest person in the world to come out here and work with these amazing people,” said Karen Molony. Molony, an instructor at Cloud Dancers Therapeutic Horsemanship Program, said she started volunteering 10 years ago and loved helping special needs children so much that she quickly became an instructor. The program serves people with disabilities, ages five and up, through animal therapy. Cloud Dancers is currently helping 20 children with positive results, she said. “You get some of these kiddos on the back of a horse and it just totally transforms them,” Molony said. In the two-hour weekly lessons, participants learn to ride, groom and connect with the program’s four horses: Speedy, Lady J, Jackie and Summer, she said. Jeffrey deGraaff, a 14-year-old participant, said he enjoys riding the the Cloud Dancers horses. He was apprehensive about the animals when he first began his lessons, but said he loves the program now. “I was a little nervous when I first joined, but since I’ve been with the program for two years now it has been a great experience,” deGraaff said. For deGraaff, the program has been about more than just the horses. He has learned about connecting with others as well, he said. “Cloud Dancers is a really good place to share memories with friends and family, and a good way to hang out with other people,” deGraaff said. Aimee Hoyt, a parent of a Cloud Dancers participant, said she had heard of therapeutic riding, and after doing some research she found

that this was the place for her son. “I called the trainers and visited the facility and it looked like a good fit,” Hoyt said. Her seven-year-old son Flint has used his relationship with the horses as therapy, she said. “He is an animal person, and any animal he is around helps him settle into his environment,” Hoyt said.

The community as a whole is very supportive of this project, she said. “The volunteers are incredible,” Hoyt said. “It can be cold, windy, rainy or even scorching and they still find time to walk in circles with the horses and help the children.” Tammie West, six-year volunteer at Cloud Dancers, said the program

is as therapeutic for her as it is for the children she assists. “I was able to help a young lady who was very shy, and we got to be friends,” West said. “We went for a ride one day and talked the whole time. When we got back her mom was astounded to find out that she had opened up to me.”

Plus, the setting is so straightforward; it was begging to be adapted for the stage. Good on Richard Schenkman for thinking of it.

are missed character beats, lines are flubbed, and the attempt at background banter is constant, distracting and atrocious. But I will be the first to admit that I’m biased as hell when it comes to science fiction, so I implore you to support this little underdog of a risky project regardless. One interesting bit for the particular performance I saw was that the titular character and 14,000-year-old protagonist, John, was played by the director, Ned

Record. The play is mostly John talking and the other characters occasionally interjecting with shock or exclamations, but not much else. It would have been wonderful to see Matthew Van Wettering, a fantastic local actor, play the role he was cast. Perhaps I’ll go back just to see. Record’s performance is admirable considering he’s a stand-in, selling much of John’s matter-of-fact blasé with believable honesty. The

Normally, the Adobe theatre is bursting at the seams when they put on shows. But this time the house was utterly desolate; deader than disco. Dead for an actual science fiction play. Jerome Bixby wrote for many popular science fiction vehicles during the 20th century, such as episodes of the original series of Star Trek or the Twilight Zone. Most famously, he penned “It’s a Good Life”

— the one with the creepy little kid who controls an entire town with his mind and every day is his birthday. The last thing Bixby ever wrote was a low-budget movie called “The Man From Earth.” The movie’s plot revolves around a bunch of people sitting around in one room while one guy talks about how he’s an original Cro-Magnon man, making him about 14,000 years old.

LETTERS Officer involved in Hawkes’ death must be fired Editor, I just submitted an online complaint against Jeremy Dear at the APD website on behalf of myself, as a concerned citizen and as part of my community. I submitted the complaint after reading news reports that the Office of the Medical Investigator has determined Mary Hawkes’ death a homocide. I submitted the date of the incident as the date of the Mary Hawkes’ killing on April 21, 2014. I asked that Officer Dear be fired. Community, please do the same. Thanks, Veronica H.

Regent Koch’s unprofessional behavior doesn’t benefit UNM Editor, Recently, I attended the Regents’ General Meeting to support the elected student governments and OurUNM in getting President Frank to return athletics and libraries to the purview of the Student Fee Review Board. The president agreed to do so for another two years, and GPSA President Priscila Poliana was gracious in thanking him for reconsidering his actions. However, it was the conduct of Regent James Koch that left the biggest impression on me. He attacked Ms. Poliana as if he were a father scolding his teenage daughter for going against his expectations. Soon thereafter, he directed his

unprofessionalism toward another student who spoke out against the Student Cabinet, openly asking him about his enrollment and class registration status as if it had bearing on what the student argued. It was a cheap attempt to invalidate the student’s justified complaints against university administration. Students have a right to voice their opinions regarding issues in the university. Having to stand behind a podium in a semi-packed ballroom in front of people in suits and ties was already intimidating for many of the students who spoke. I was glad to see that most of the Regents made the atmosphere a bit friendlier through being respectful and courteous in listening, asking questions and responding to the students’ concerns. Regent Koch, on the other hand, seemed to go out of his way to add to the intimidation with an unveiled rudeness and disrespect that his position does not entitle him to. Regardless of his business and political credentials, I find it troubling that someone displaying such disrespectful and unprofessional conduct could be selected as a UNM Regent. I believe someone who seems to be more interested in imposing his agenda on others than listening to the concerns of the faculty and students in incapable of acting in the best interests of the university. Mr. Koch’s term as regent is set to end in December, and I hope that his replacement, if there is one, will be as courteous and respectful to meeting attendees and student elected leaders as the other regents. Sincerely, Carlyn N. Pinkins Doctoral Student, UNM Department of History

GPSA shows transparency by withdrawing from divestment Editor, Last month at the GPSA meeting the council representatives, myself included, voted to pass a divestment resolution brought by Students for Justice in Palestine (SJP), Students Organizing Actions for Peace, Movimiento 4 Estudiantil Chican@ de Aztlan, UNM Dream Team, Men of Color Alliance, Muslim Student Association, Fair Trade Initiative and UNM Arabic Language Club. At the April meeting, students who had not attended any Council meetings this school year registered to become council members to be able to use their speaking and voting privileges to advocate for the divestment resolution. There was no one at the GPSA meeting to speak against divestment, and Council members were told there were no opposing views to this resolution. In the week that followed the passing of the Divestment Resolution, many of us (as students, representatives and GPSA executive members) received a variety of feedback about the Divestment Resolution, the potential consequences for students on campus, and a reminder that Saturday is the day of rest for those of Jewish faith. The resolution had strong language about companies that allegedly oppress Palestinian people, and demanded that UNM stop investing in them, even though we are unsure whether UNM in fact invests in these companies. At the GPSA Council meeting this Saturday I made a motion to rescind the Divestment Resolution, which opened it up for further discussion.

This time there was the opportunity for viewpoints that were not heard in April to be shared with the council. After much conversation, the motion to rescind the resolution passed. I thank everyone who was willing to participate in this process by voting on behalf of their departments to ensure that GPSA continues to support an inclusive democratic process where groups are invited to come to the table to speak, even when it might seem to be too late. With a near majority of Council representatives who voted on Saturday involved with groups that sponsored the divestment resolution, I think it sends a positive message that GPSA withdrew support for something we had previously approved when additional viewpoints were brought to the table. We heard what these new voices were saying and we responded accordingly. Regardless of the outcome, GPSA showed that we care about bringing more voices into the conversation. I look forward to continued debate from passionate students about issues that we care about. GPSA stands in solidarity with all those who are oppressed by military intimidation, and we believe dialogue is the only solution in a world torn by war. We feel that the best course of action is to support investment in companies that intend to make the world a better place and to have transparency and student input in UNM’s investment decisions.

Studying abroad William Aranda / Daily Lobo / @_WilliamAranda A Pallid-winged grasshopper sits on the hand of Research Associate Professor Dr. David Lightfoot. Lightfoot said there are about 200 species of grasshoppers living in New Mexico.

by Lauren Marvin Nature is calling, but it’s not the chirping of the birds or the swooshing of the trees. This year, it’s the call of grasshoppers. There’s nothing to worry about, though — this is a pretty regular occurrence, said Dr. David Lightfoot, associate research professor of biology and senior collection manager for the Museum of Southwestern Biology. The sudden abundance of grasshoppers is a result of the heavy rain last fall and a mild winter, which caused a high survival rate, he said. “It’s typically about every five to 10 years (that) the weather conditions will be just right so there will be a big population of these, so it’s not that unusual,” Lightfoot said. The grasshoppers’ prosperity will also be short-lived, he said. “It’s a real temporary thing,” Lightfoot said. “This generation will start dwindling now, as they’re being taken out by predators, being run over and stepped on. The population will come down pretty quickly.” They may not be around for long, but the grasshoppers have already done some damage to crops in the state. Jim Wagner, owner of Wagner Farms, said he lost his entire first chili crop and had to replant 25 acres because of the grasshoppers. His inch-tall crop was destroyed

after the grasshoppers came, attracted to the water in the farm’s irrigation system, he said. “I couldn’t believe it — it was just big clouds of grasshoppers coming from the Isleta Reservation,” Wagner said. “And then the next day when I came there wasn’t anything.” If the second crop sprouts before the grasshoppers leave, another chili crop could be damaged, he said. “We are just hoping we get a handle on it with pesticides and kill them,” Wagner said. “(If) they don’t, planting will get delayed and we don’t get anything.” Cheryl Kent, a Bernalillo County Horticulture Extension agent, said residents have been calling a lot about the grasshoppers since spring began. They have been worried about the volume of grasshoppers and what they may do to trees, shrubberies and gardens, she said. “A lot of people don’t remember this does happen periodically,” Kent said. “This is a very normal thing, but people forget easily.” The best way to protect plants from the grasshoppers is to cover them with a wire mesh, and only under special circumstances should insecticides be used, she said. “I suspect we will have higher than usual number of grasshoppers probably all summer,” Kent said. “I really think we have seen the worst of it and I hope I’m right about that.” There are approximately 200 spe-


more dramatic moments, however, thud roughly into melodrama and excessive telegraphing — a bit like a violent piece of mime. This was not uncommon throughout the cast. The script is unfortunately a bit too male-centric, with the “great men of science” taking the intellectual high ground. The presence of female characters like Linda (played by Adrienne Cox) or Sandy (Rachel Haskett) are confused and mostly worthless. It was unclear if they were just grad students who the professors were banging on the side, because their characters donated practically nothing to the ongoing discussion. Perhaps it was the weakness of the writing of their characters, but both performances were largely grating. Heather Lovick-Tolley played Edith, the token upset Christian. Lovick-Tolley’s performance is also somewhat confused, having occasional beautiful moments of character honesty scattered throughout a wash of hammy weirdness. Elaine Beckett, who plays as the

‘Moving Person,’ really allows her character to appear. In a display of the most bizarre, stagy attempts at overacting and physical comedy I have ever seen, Beckett nearly single-handedly destroyed the production in a holocaust of wordless grunts and eye-bulges. Thank Christ for Jim Cady brilliantly stepping in as Dr. Will Gruber for a shattering one-liner that told us it was all going to be okay. What else do you want me to say? It’s science fiction.

cies of grasshoppers in New Mexico, and the most common type found in the Albuquerque area is the Pallidwinged grasshopper, Lightfoot said. Grasshoppers are not all bad, either. They enhance the nutrient cycle by eating plants, and natural pruning also occurs when the grasshoppers feed off the plants, he said. “When they eat, they poo, like everything else,” Lightfoot said. “That is fast-lining nutrients to the soil surface.” Lauren Marvin is a freelance reporter for the Daily Lobo.

Season predictions look troublesome for Lobos by Thomas Romero-Salas Early predictions aren’t looking favorable for the New Mexico football team. Every summer/spring, the Orlando Sentinel and USA Today count down every single Division One college football from No. 128 to No. 1. The Sentinel, which had UNM ranked No. 88 last year, has the Lobos at No. 105. USA Today put UNM at No. 108 last year. This year they have the Lobos at No. 110. This year’s rankings are in sharp contrast with some key facts. For the first time in Bob Davie’s three-year tenure, the Lobos will have a full complement of 85 scholarship players. UNM will also have 14 starters returning from last season’s 3-9 squad, which is six more than returned last year. Davie has also taken steps to improve a defense that ranked near the bottom of most Division I defensive categories last season. There’s more size in the defensive line, more height in the secondary and more competition at all positions.

USA Today’s Paul Myberg wrote that defense remains the primary reason why the Lobos will once again struggle to reach a bowl game. “For two years — and now three — Davie and DeBesse have been able to out-scheme a lack of horses with an unorthodox, often unstoppable offensive attack with roots in college football’s past,” Myers wrote. “On defense, however, UNM has been unable to locate a similar approach, leaving the Lobos lagging in comparison to this powerful offense. Better days are ahead, but I simply don’t see the personnel Davie and Cosgrove need to bring this defense up to speed.” The Sentinel admits that the program is heading in the right direction under Davie. “New Mexico is in much better shape than it was three years ago, but the Lobos still have work to do to clinch the first bowl bid of coach Bob Davie’s tenure,” Iliana Limon Romero wrote.
