Anyone have a light? Lack of city funds leaves Tucson streets in darkness By Justyn Dillingham ARIZONA SUMMER WILDCAT

Giuseppe DeMasi/Arizona Summer Wildcat

Seen from a distance, Tucson at night glistens and pops with the energy of a million bulbs. Up close, however, things look rather different. It’s not simply that many street lights are turned off around town during the night, as many residents have noticed; many neighborhoods have virtually no street lights. A Saturday night drive through some of central Tucson’s residential neighborhoods around 10 p.m. was revealing. A few blocks east of campus, the Sam Hughes neighborhood is dotted with the soft glow of lamps, illuminating one of Tucson’s oldest — and wealthiest — neighborhoods. But drive east across County Club Road into the neighborhood north of El Con Mall, and

the lights all but vanish. Anyone plodding home on foot tonight would find himself or herself in pitch darkness for block after block. North of campus, the Jefferson Park neighborhood has lights at intersections, but virtually none in between, its streets illuminated mainly by porch lights and occasional cars. Rincon Heights, south of campus, has lights at intersections but few in between. The neighborhoods near Oracle Road and Grant Road are only sporadically lit. Some streets in the Julia Keen neighborhood, south of 22nd Street and west of Alvernon Road, have lights scattered here and there, while others are totally dark. With Tucson’s crime rate higher than the national average in several areas — including robbery, rape and burglary — why is the city so dark? STREETS, page 5

*excludes men’s basketball coach Sean Miller, as his salary will be reflected as part of Fiscal Year 2010

TEMPE — While topics of discussion ranged from neuroscience research to the revised Arizona University System architecture, all of the issues brought up at the Arizona Board of Regents meeting on Aug. 6 and 7 in Tempe shared one concern — managing the budget. The first day of the Board meeting focused heavily on approving research funds and institutions for the 2010 Fiscal Year. The Board of Regents approved a $6,632,244 revised budget for the Technology and Research Initiative Fund (TRIF) at the UA. TRIF primarily supports research and developments in bioresearch, optical sciences and water and environmental sustainability. The fund suffered substantial budget cuts over the last few years — the fund experienced a 23 percent cut in 2009 — and continues to fall. In addition to the TRIF, the UA will receive more funding for graduate medical research. An Intergovernmental Agree-

ment between the Regents and Pima County will provide for $18.5 million in federal funding in support of graduate medical education programs. UA will provide $2.9 million to be combined with an equal amount from Pima County in order to secure the federal research funds. In total, the preliminary FY 2010 Arizona University System state expenditure is projected to be $1.8 billion. $1.1 billion will be received from general funds while $691 million will come from tuition and fee revenues. Recognizing that reductions of state funds are imminent for the FY 2010, the Board of Regents requested that the universities present their FY 2010 all-funds budgets at the Board meeting on Sept. 24 and 25 on the Northern Arizona University campus in Flagstaff.

Increased enrollment “more feasible” than new colleges, Shelton says

President Robert Shelton briefly elaborated on the proposed plan to expand UA enrollment by 10,000 students by the

year 2020. Originally introduced at the June Board meeting, “10K by 2020” hinges on an extensive development of partnerships with local community colleges rather than the development of multiple new campuses. “From the perspective of the UA, new four-year colleges are not financially feasible,” Shelton said. Through the development of regional-specific programs, the UA plans on creating multiple degree pathways for non-traditional students that will utilize the traditional classroom setting, as well as online resources. “The one thing that is clear is that Arizonans want choices when it comes to their education,” said Regent Ernest Calderon. To conclude the Day One session, the Regents examined the 2009 Annual Report on wages earned by Arizona University System graduates. Dan Anderson, assistant executive director for institutional analysis for the Board of Regents, opened his presentation by illustrating the financial benefits of obtaining a degree in the state. “Arizona residents with a bachelor’s degree earn approxi-

mately $20,000 more than residents without a degree,” said Anderson. In 2007, graduates from Arizona’s public universities between 1990 and 2007 earned nearly $9.4 billion in wages in Arizona and paid $678 million in state and local taxes. The median wage for Arizona State University graduates in 2007 was $46,846 while at the UA, the median wage for a bachelor’s degree was $44,964. “One (dollar) out of $5 in Arizona is earned by an Arizona System graduate,” Anderson said.

Women’s Day in the life of ... a UAPD sergeant Club pays nursing tuition By Michael Merriman ARIZONA SUMMER WILDCAT

The Summer Wildcat recently had the opportunity to spend an afternoon with the University of Arizona Police Department to find out first-hand how the department operates. The Wildcat staff travelled to the department’s main station, located on Campbell Avenue and Second Street.

By Michael Merriman ARIZONA SUMMER WILDCAT A local women’s club recently donated tuition for a UA nursing student as part of a yearly tradition that began 30 years ago. The Southwest Women’s Charitable Club, based in Tucson, was formed in 1958 for the purposes of charity, education, and fellowship. The club uses fundraisers to levy money for the donations that they make to local charities like The Giving Tree, Community Food Bank, Meals On Wheels and New Beginnings. The club has a scholarship committee that annually coordinates with the UA College of Nursing to create a list of candidates to be considered for a scholarship. Usually, the club will generate a list of between two and three people at random, and the candidates will not be informed until they have been chosen to receive the donation. From a list of potential recipients, the club selects one student who is most in need of the financial support the donation can provide. “They really need the help,� said Betty Klein, the club’s parliamentarian. “We all know how tuition has been rising.� This year’s recipient of the award was Ruby Rasmussen, a senior at the College of Nursing and a mother of two. “I really think that it’s a good thing they are doing," Rasmussen said. "I am deeply appreciative." Rasmussen received a phone call last year from the College of Nursing informing her that she had been chosen to receive the donation. She met with the club last May, at one of their luncheons, and after meeting the women who helped make her dream come true, she agreed to accept the endowment. The scholarship that Rasmussen received has so far paid for her tuition for two semesters at the

We met up with Sgt. Juan Alvarez, a 19-year UAPD veteran, and after being issued visitors’ passes, we were granted access to the offices within the department. Alvarez serves numerous roles within the unit, among them as the department’s crime prevention and public information officer. We talked with Alvarez in his office and found out what a normal day is like for him. As the PIO, Alvarez is the department’s public liaison and the officer responsible for interacting with the public, including the me-

dia and community organizations. Alvarez schedules presentations and parental liaisons where officers talk to the public and advise them of ways to avoid becoming a victim. Alvarez and the department know that reducing crime makes the campus safer for everybody and reduces the strain on officers and resources. Alvarez starts his day at about 7 a.m., reading police reports from the previous evening. He does this both to ensure the quality of the reports being generated in his department and to get a feel for what has happened in his absence. Alvarez coordinates media releases, updates the department’s Twitter page and schedules events where UAPD officers can interact with the student body, like the upcoming move-in, where officers will physically assist incoming students as they move in to the dorms. Alvarez led us into the Records Office, where we met Jenna Bour-

‘Personal responsibility’ little more than a myth T other people enjoying the pleahere’s a lot of talk these sures that mysteriously eluded days about “personal him seemed particularly irksome responsibility,” and to him. In his online diatribes, he for good reason. It’s a nice, frequently comantisepticplained about sounding, Justyn teenage girls middle-of-theDillingham who had more road kind of sex than he did. idea: Presieditor in chief How dare they, dent Obama he raged. talks about Responding it when he to Sodini’s pathetic self-justificawants to sound more consertions, Bob Herbert wrote a magnifivative and conservatives talk cent riposte in the New York Times about it when they want to on Aug. 7. Why, he asked, did sound more liberal. It’s the no one treat this crime as a hate kind of idea nobody really crime, the way a crime that tardisapproves of.

Reading the predictably horrific and dispiriting stories about last week’s latest shooting rampage, I began to wonder if it’s the kind of idea nobody really takes seriously, either. George Sodini, the 48-year-old loser who shot and killed three women after he burst into a Latin dance class in Pittsburgh, Penn., on Aug. 4, blamed women for his dreadful act. Not the specific women he shot — he blamed the entire gender. He hated women for a lot of reasons. He blamed his mother for not raising him right. He claimed that “30 million women” had rejected him since 1984. The thought of

geted Jews or African-Americans would be treated? Because, he concluded, “We have become so accustomed to living in a society saturated with misogyny that the barbaric treatment of women and girls has come to be more or less expected. We profess to being shocked … but the shock wears off quickly in an environment in which the rape, murder and humiliation of females is not only a staple of the news, but an important cornerstone of the nation’s entertainment.” Herbert is right. According to the Tucson Police Department’s Web site, there have been 104 rapes in Tucson since January. Why isn’t

this a city-wide scandal? Why has it come to be something we take for granted, even accept? The answer is simple: Because the rest of the country is just as bad, or worse. Because the rest of the world is just as bad, or worse. Perhaps there’s something more to it, though — something almost as disturbing as misogyny. It’s our impulse to take the killer’s side, to try to see where he was coming from, why he did what he did. That’s understandable, of course, but it can lead us in troubling directions. Some of the headlines of articles about the shooting — like “Failures in love bred LA Fitness Center Killer’s Hate,” from the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review — reflect this weird mentality. (That particular story begins: “George Sodini couldn’t find love.”) Why not “Killer blamed past failures for his actions”? Why frame the story as if “30 million women” really were to blame for the shooting? What sort of lesson are we supposed to draw out of this — that the women in Sodini’s past should have been nicer to him? Would we frame an anti-Semitic murderer’s crimes this way? In the last blog he wrote before shooting himself, Sodini wrote that

he didn’t expect to be punished for his murderous act because “Christ paid for EVERY sin,” and hence sinning was OK. It’s the ultimate way to shrug off responsibility: God’s going to let me off the hook no matter what I do, so why bother being good? Countless murderers have pretended that God was “on their side,” but there can’t be many others who devised such a pathetic pretext for evil. Reading a follow-up story about the shooting on the British Guardian’s Web site, I noticed a link to another story, about a Florida man who blamed his cat for downloading more than 1,000 images of child pornography. The man insisted that he left the room during a music-downloading spree, only to return to find that his cat had been jumping on the keyboard, causing “strange things” to pop onto his screen unbidden. It’s a long jump from a shooting spree to this rather amusing story (though child pornography is nothing to laugh at). But the man who blamed his future victims at the gym and the man who blamed his poor cat had this in common: They couldn’t take responsibility for their own actions. They couldn’t accept that they had failed, so they attempted to shove the blame onto

innocent bystanders. In a way, we do the same thing when we treat horrific crimes as anomalies. Sodini’s act was no anomaly, but part of a sinister trend. As Herbert pointed out, that cretin who murdered 32 people at Virginia Tech in 2007 held equally twisted, misogynistic views of women. As long as we shrug at these views instead of confronting them, we give them credence. Ignorance breeds misogyny, and misogyny breeds violence. We can’t afford to let a generation of men grow up thinking that fearing and resenting women for their independence is acceptable, even understandable. Personal responsibility might be a corny-sounding idea, but that doesn’t mean it’s any less real or valid. It was Sodini’s responsibility to get over his “failures in love,” and he failed. It’s something to remember, perhaps, the next time we’re tempted to blame someone else for a bad day, a low-paying job or a lonely night. It’s up to us, and no one else, to change that. — Justyn Dillingham is the editor in chief of the Arizona Summer Wildcat. He can be reached at letters@wildcat.arizona.edu.

Education cuts vetoed continued from page 2 Sendek to serve through June 30, 2014. The Board received a report on the legislative activities of the third special session of the 49th Legislature, which convened on July 6 and remains in session. During the session, Gov. Jan Brewer vetoed what would have been $139.7 million in permanent reductions to the University System. The Board received a report on National Higher Education Issues from Christine Thompson, assistant executive director for government affairs for the Regents. The report included a summary of President Barack Obama’s FY 2010 education budget, which includes just under $68 billion in programs within the Department of Education, an increase of $6.2 billion from the FY 2009. In addition, Thompson gave an overview of Obama’s American Graduation Initiative, a 10-year, $12 billion plan to increase community college graduates nationwide by five million. To conclude the meeting, the Board noticed the recent formation of a panel by the National Academies to assess the competitive position of the nation’s universities. The panel has been requested by a bipartisan group of four congressional leaders to identify the top 10 actions that research universities, Congress and local governments can take to maximize the research capacity of American universities.

STREETS continued from page 1

Astronomers ‘not anti-light’

Some might assume that Tucson’s famously strict dark-sky ordinances, stemming from the city’s reputation as one of the world’s leading astronomy centers, have something to do with it. But Johanna Duffek, outreach and education manager for the International Dark-Sky Association, a non-profit advocacy group based in Tucson, said that astronomers do not object to the presence of street lights in residential neighborhoods. “We’re not anti-light in any way,” she said. Rather, she said, the IDA lobbies for the construction of dark sky-friendly lights, which point directly at the ground, not into the sky or through residents’ windows. By city ordinance, all new street lights built in Tucson must fit this definition. Lack of money seems to be the primary reason for the darkness of so many neighborhood streets. Michael Graham, a spokesman for the Department of Transportation, said that the city does not have the funding to build new street lights at the moment. The average street light costs from $5,000 to $7,000, he said. Graham said there are three ways for residents to add street lights to their neighborhood. They can request dusk-to-dawn lights directly from Tucson Electric Power for a small monthly fee, they can form an improvement district within their neighborhood to pay for a city-constructed light, or they can seek funding for a city light via their ward office through the Pima County Reinvestment Program. “Once street lights are up, the

city maintains those,” Graham said, adding that TEP is responsible for maintaining its own lights. Not everyone thinks more light would mean less crime. “You see better than if there’s periodic blinding light,” said Bob Schlanger, president of the Jefferson Park Neighborhood Association. Schlanger said he hasn’t heard complaints about lack of night light from Jefferson Park’s residents. “It’s reasonably dark,” he said. Duffek said excessive light in a neighborhood can be as dangerous as no light at all, citing the potential dangers of glaring lamps and harsh shadows, which can hide muggers. “We look all the time for the connection between light and crime,” Duffek said. “We have not seen any actual studies that say if you turn the lights off, crime increases. We’ve seen anecdotal evidence, but nothing clear-cut. Most crime still happens during the day and most crime still happens inside buildings.” Judging by the Tucson Police Department’s online crime statistics, there doesn’t appear to be any direct correlation between night light and night crime. Sam Hughes, brimming with night light, saw eight muggings and 89 burglaries in 2008, easily beating out the comparatively dark Julia Keen (four muggings, 27 burglaries) and Ocotillo Oracle (seven muggings, 15 burglaries). Rincon Heights suffered six muggings and 69 burglaries, while Jefferson Park saw only three muggings and 53 burglaries. Sam Hughes also saw more instances of rape (three) in 2008

than Ocotillo Oracle (one), Julia Keen (one), Rincon Heights (two) or Jefferson Park (one). This year, however, the number was up to three for Julia Keen, two for Sam Hughes, one for Ocotillo Oracle and none for the other two. Still, it’s hard to deny that for many Tucsonans, dark streets simply feel less safe. Christian Ramirez, a photography senior, lives next to one of the only lights on her street in the Iron Horse neighborhood, southwest of campus. “When I’m riding my bike home at night, sometimes I freak myself out a little bit,” Ramirez said. “It’s really hard to feel safe when you can’t really see where you’re going.” Skip Andree, a lifelong resident of Sam Hughes whose grandchildren attend the neighborhood’s elementary school, said he thinks more sidewalks and more frequent police patrols are key to making Tucson’s neighborhoods safer. “I think more lights, properly shielded and pointed towards the ground, do make the neighborhood safer,” he said. Money may not be the only thing standing in the way of a brighter Tucson. Graham said that some residents have complained about the presence of street lights after the city has finished putting them up. Having become accustomed to only sporadic light, or no light at all, many Tucsonans may not want that to change. “Some people prefer that when it gets dark, it stays dark,” Graham said.

NURSING

Scholarship ‘helps a lot’ continued from page 3 college and will also cover the upcoming fall semester, which will be her last. The tuition does not cover expenses such as books, but is designed to make it easier for students to attend school by making it more financially accessible. “Becoming a nurse is a dream I’ve had for a long time,” Rasmussen said. Rasmussen moved to Arizona six years ago to attend the College of Nursing, but finances prevented her from immediately enrolling. She worked as a dental assistant for a few years before going back to school to fulfill her dream. Having her tuition awarded was a shock to Rasmussen, but she is grateful for the assistance. “With their financial help, it really helps a lot,” Rasmussen said. The scholarship is available to all female nursing college students. “I’m just very impressed with these ladies,” said Ann Smith, a member of the club’s Social Committee, “And I’m very happy that I was asked to be a member.” Smith has only been a member of the club for three years, but she gushed about the charitable activities that her fellow club members participate in, like raising $500 to help a needy Tucson family this past Christmas. “The fact that they want to support the University of Arizona in helping a deserving nursing student with her tuition, I just think it’s great,” Smith said. “It’s an extremely giving organization.”

Former Wildcat RB Henry plays in NFL Hall of Fame game THE ASSOCIATED PRESS CANTON, Ohio — For a preseason opener, Kerry Collins felt like he was already picking up from where he was last season in leading Tennessee to the playoffs. As for Vince Young, it's one step at a time before he feels capable of regaining his dominant form. Overshadowing Terrell Owens' debut for the Buffalo Bills, the two Titans quarterbacks combined to produce three touchdown drives in a 21-18 win to kick off the NFL's preseason in the Hall of Fame game on Sunday night. “I'm encouraged,” Collins said, entering his 15th season. “It doesn't take as long to get ready, but I'll

take advantage of the work I'm going to get.” Leading the rushing attack for he Titans was former Arizona Wildcat back Chris Henry, who gained 23 yards on six carries. Henry also caught a 12-yard pass and made an open-field tackle while playing on the special teams unit. As for Collins, the starter was certainly efficient in the two series he got against the Bills, by quickly delivering on the faith the Titans put in him after being signed to a two-year $15 million contract this offseason. Already selected as the starter, Collins went 7-of-10 for 82 yards in producing two touchdown drives, one capped by reserve punter A.J.

Trapasso's 40-yard run on a perfectly executed fake punt on the opening possession. Collins was especially efficient in going 3-for-4 for 49 yards on third down. Young needed to shake off plenty of rust before he finally produced. After going 1-of-5 for 13 yards and an interception in his first three series, Young showed great touch in hitting Paul Williams for a 5-yard touchdown pass to put the Titans up 21-3 late in the second quarter. “It happens, man,” Young said of his sluggish start. “I know everybody wants me to go out and be perfect, but it's not happening like that. You can't just jump into it.” In five series, Young went 5-of-10 for 39 yards, and a 1-yard run. And

Shelton, Hay to help freshmen move in

Life about helping move in students and will have its volunteers wearing Wildcat Welcome shirts so there is no confusion, according to Lieberman. “For a lot of parents that come to the dorms, they pull up in the 20-minute loading zones and think it’s nice to have extra hands to get the work done quickly,” Lieberman said. Different departments all over campus, and even some fraternities return every year to help with the move-in. President Robert Shelton and Provost Meredith Hay, will also be in attendance and assisting the move-in process, said Juliette Moore, Campus Recreation Center director. “There are shuttles to Fry’s and the Tucson Mall so that most students have the opportunity to get all the things to get their rooms settled,” Lieberman said. “For the students who are flying in from out-of-state or their family left and they forgot something, (they) have an opportunity to go off campus and buy things.” Campus Recreation will be putting on an event called “Get REC’d” on the UA Mall during the first day of classes. The Arizona Tennis Club is a new addition to the list of volunteers, and they have agreed to host the event. There will be information, games and free Eegee’s scooped by Shelton and Hay in their first debut at the event, Moore said. One of the most important events, according to Lieberman, is the Student Involvement Fair on the Mall on Aug. 27, sponsored by the Center for Student Involvement and Leadership and ASUA. “With over 500 clubs, this campus can be daunting,” Lieberman said. “Having all the clubs out there gives the students face time with their student representatives and gives them a head start on how they might get involved on campus.”

This is especially relevant to transfer students Lieberman said. “Often, if you were involved with a club on your previous campus, we can find one that can fit, and you can get involved,” Lieberman added. ZonaZoo is modifying their usual kick off by putting on the ZonaZoo Power Hours from on Aug. 28 on University Boulevard, said Moore. Attendees will learn about Arizona’s traditions like Wilbur the Wildcat, the Arizona Pep Band, cheerleaders and the Zona Zoo Crew. The biggest event of Wildcat Welcome every year, Moore said, is the barbecue held on Aug. 21 at the Student Union Memorial Center. More than 1,000 parents and students attend every year and eat food, watch entertainment and get a welcome by UA officials. “Another big one that is done every year is the Annual Residence Hall Association Block Party, hosted by Residence Life on Aug. 22,” Moore said. As parents eventually have to leave their children, they can enjoy one last event together at the Bon Voyage Brunch on Aug. 23 in the Union’s South Ballroom, hosted by Wildcat Welcome and the Parent and Family Association. “It’s to value the role the parents play, and we want to be there for them while they’re sending their students off,” Lieberman said. “A lot of the parents will come out with the students, and we give them an opportunity to give their farewells and close their events. It gets the students ready to step out on their own and gets the parents ready to go home.” “The events are open to all students; anyone can check them out, free of cost to all,” Moore said. “Come and enjoy the free stuff, take advantage of getting some free Eegee’s… It’s nice to get a little something. It’s always good.”

yet far more is expected from the player selected No. 3 in the 2006 draft, and whose future with the Titans is clouded since losing the starting job at the start of last season. The Bills have plenty of work to do, too. Buffalo looked sluggish and nothing like the better-prepared team, considering it opened training camp two weeks ago — a week ahead of the Titans. The only offensive highlights were provided by Owens, who signed a one-year $6.5 million contract with Buffalo in early March, days after being released by Dallas. On the field for only one series, Owens had two catches for 27 yards, including a 16-yarder on the second play from scrimmage. Trent

POLICE continued from page 3

Edwards hit Owens in perfect stride on a slant, and the receiver had the opportunity to score if not for a perfect tackle by cornerback Cortland Finnegan. For Bills fans, it was important to see Owens get involved early. For T.O., it was no big deal. “It was just what was open, Trent saw it and threw it to me,"” Owens said of his first catch. “Whether or not it was a statement remains to be seen. I feel comfortable with the offense. I like it in Buffalo, but we all have a lot of work to do.” That was apparent with how the drive ended, when Edwards floated a pass intended for Lee Evans at the Titans' 7 and was easily intercepted by Michael Griffin.

Police tour reveals inner workings

employees, releases vehicles from the impound, processes subpoenas and serves as the information desk for visitors to the station. From Records, Alvarez led us into the Dispatch Office, where two dispatchers were staring at a dozen computer screens. All calls placed to UAPD come through dispatchers like Agi Bakonyi and Judy Severson, who are on site 24 hours a day ensuring that callers can get the help they need. The dispatch team also has the task of performing records checks for officers on patrol. They can access several databases in order to verify names and addresses or confirm warrants and arrest records. We left the dispatch office and headed over to the department’s Business Office. The Business Office handles the administrative tasks for UAPD, including coordinating special events, ordering office supplies and maintaining network connectivity. In the business office, IT specialist Andre De Leon was busy keeping the department’s computer systems up and running, and Veronica Hernandez, an office specialist, was transcribing an interview. Alvarez then took us from the Business Office to the briefing room, where officers coming in to start their shifts get the important information they need to be safe and productive. The room also hosts a weekly staff meeting where department heads and commanders meet to keep each other updated on what is working, what is not working and what needs to be changed. Alvarez led us into the prisoner processing room, where arrestees are taken after being placed into custody. The prisoner pro-

cessing room is located in a long hallway, near the report writing room, the interview rooms and the evidence processing room. In this part of the station, officers have at their disposal all of the tools necessary to properly and safely arrest, book, question and safeguard detainees and prisoners. Alvarez then led us to the equipment issue room, where safes containing shotguns and rifles stood along side racks of portable radios and riot shields, all neatly organized and ready for use, should officers need them. We exited the equipment room and bumped into Andrea Sanders, a police aide lead. Police aides patrol campus, assist officers and generally help out with some of the mundane but critical tasks that keep the entire department running smoothly, Andrea said. The UAPD station is self-contained, much like larger police departments or military bases. “A lot of agencies are set up just like us, but much larger in scale,” Alvarez said. UAPD’s goal is to be able to provide the highest level of service to university visitors, which necessitates the amount of workers that UAPD employs. “Without each one of these roles, it would be very difficult to do what we do each day,” said Alvarez. While many students may see UAPD on routine patrols, Alvarez wants people to know that there is a whole force of officers and employees that work behind the scenes to ensure that the safety of every campus visitor is of the utmost concern. “Whatever we do we’re doing the best way we can. I think that’s something to be proud of.”

POLICEBEAT By Michael Merriman ARIZONA SUMMER WILDCAT

Slipper slip-up at bookstore

University of Arizona Police Department officers responded to the UA Bookstore on Aug. 5 at 6:44 p.m., to a larceny call. Officers talked to an employee who told them that a man had been shoplifting from the store. Employees told police they had seen the man pick up a pack of AA batteries and walk around the store with them while opening the packaging. They also told police that during a further review of the surveillance videos, it was discovered that the man had also opened 3 packages of slippers, placed them all on his feet at the same time, and left his shoes by the dressing room to walk around. Officers approached the man as he was placing two AA batteries into his camera. The man told officers, “If it’s about the batteries, I have them right here.” Officers told the man not to speak again until he had been read his Miranda rights. When asked about the batteries, the man told police that he had entered the store to escape the rain. He had seen the batteries and remembered that the batteries in his camera were dead. When asked about the slippers, the man told police that he had to open the packages and separate the slippers to try them on. The total value of the goods the man had allegedly attempted to shoplift was $65.37. He was cited on charges of shoplifting and criminal damage and was warned against returning to the bookstore in the future.

Purchasing Card purchases fraudulent

UAPD officers were dispatched to the University Athletics Department on Aug. 5 at 4:10 p.m., in reference to fraud involving a University Purchasing Card. Officers talked with an employee who told them that another employee, who was currently in another state on vacation, received an email from the Purchasing Card Office on Aug. 3 informing her that several purchases were made in the San Francisco and Oakland areas, totaling $2,910.87, on her P Card. Neither employee could provide police with any suspects or further information. The charges were canceled, and a Victim’s Rights Form was issued.

Rabid bat found at Arizona Stadium

Officers were dispatched to Arizona Stadium on Aug. 3 at 5:32 p.m., in reference to a bat that was found on a sidewalk that appeared to be dying. Officers approached the animal and called Animal Control. Animal Control officers removed the injured animal and took it off university property. On Aug. 5, UAPD was contacted by Animal Control and informed that the bat in question had tested positive for rabies.

Man leaves paranoid phone messages

UAPD officers met with a university employee on Aug. 1 at 1:07 p.m., who told them that between July 31 and Aug. 1, she had received two phone calls, and two answering machine messages, at her home from an unknown male. She told officers about the man’s first message, which he claimed was “a national security emergency.” She told police the man also said that “mind control operations are currently ongoing at the University of Arizona,” and that “Department of Defense employee Stephen Mitchell is using MRI and radio signals to disrupt the Tucson Community.” The woman further told police the man said that operations are currently being conducted at the Eller College of Business, Ryan Cognitive Lab and the Communications building. The woman told police that during his second message, the man identified himself as “Kevin.” UAPD dialed the number that the calls had originated from, and a man answered, identifying himself as “Kevin.” He told officers he would not meet with police, because he was afraid that he would be arrested, but did mention that he lived near the intersection of Broadway Boulevard and Sarnoff Drive. The employee did not wish to press charges on the caller. The man’s recorded messages were placed into evidence, and the man was advised against making any more harassing phone calls.

YOUR SUMMER DOSE OF MUSIC, MOVIES AND MORE

Biennial unifies strands of Arizona art Rev. Run By Tauni Malmgren ARIZONA SUMMER WILDCAT According to Tucson Museum of Art’s Chief Curator Julie Sasse, artists in today’s tumultuous times are struggling to find themselves and asking, “Where are we going? Where have we been?” These messages, according to Sasse, unify the talent of the state’s longest running biennial exhibition, Arizona Biennial ’09. At first impression, this unification is unclear. Mirroring all of the mediums used within Arizona’s current artistic climate, it seems that the Tucson Museum of Art has done their best to cover them all: installation art, landscapes, photography, painting, sculpture — you name it, it’s there, represented by more than 40 gifted Arizona artists. Among the over 400 regional applicants, the chosen pieces coalesce to

create a general conversation between current artistic trends and schools of thought from the art studios in Arizona. The result of this open dialogue is not a neat divide, as show curator Tim Rodgers suggests. However, the quality of this year’s biennial makes it apparent that a lot of thought has been put into not only presenting the top tier in Arizona’s artistic community, but also finding a deliberate direction for what could have been a cacophony of ideas. Visually, the exhibit is organized in a way that makes the art digestive: one area of the museum sections off various pieces that utilize a grayscale color palate, while another wall incorporates works with a clean, design-driven aesthetic. Mid-century influences like Rauschenberg and minimalism BIENNIAL, page 10

Randy Travis to perform at UA By Shain Bergan ARIZONA SUMMER WILDCAT

As students filter onto the UA campus the weekend before the first day of fall classes, country singer Randy Travis will be playing to a suspected full house at Centennial Hall, UApresents officials said. The 50-year-old Grammy Award winner will be performing new material from his most recent album, Around the Bend, on Aug. 22, as part of UApresents’ summer series that began with the B-52s’ visit to campus

on June 24. Centennial Hall has never hosted a country artist, so when Travis became available, UApresents saw its opportunity, said Mario DiVetta, publicity and marketing associate for UApresents. “We always wanted a country artist,” DiVetta said. “The way everything happened, Randy Travis just kind of fell into our lap.” Due to Travis’ status as the first multi-platinum country music star, UApresents expects Centennial Hall to sell out its capacity of about 2,500, Di Vetta said.

“It’s the right time … Students are coming back to school, and he just happened to be coming through,” DiVetta said. “So it just worked out perfectly.” Tickets range from $25 to $60 and are currently being sold on the UApresents Web site and at the Centennial Hall box office. Call 621-3341 for more information. Travis has 22 No. 1 hits to his name, along with six number one albums, five Grammy Awards and a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame, according to a UApresents press release.

You love your family. You may be grateful for their help in moving you down to Tucson before school starts. You may even miss them. Stars of the MTV reality show, “Run’s House,” Joseph “Reverend Run” Simmons, from hip-hop group Run DMC, and his wife, Justine, have similar feelings of that familial bond. The Arizona Summer Wildcat caught up with them Friday at the Barnes & Noble near Broadway Boulevard and Rosemont Avenue. They were promoting, “Take Back Your Family: How to Raise Respectful and Loving Kids in a Dysfunctional World,” a funny and inspirational book about keeping the family intact. Wildcat: Tell me about your book. Reverend Run: I consider it an extension of my show. People constantly ask my wife and I, “Why don’t you guys do a book? You’re so inspirational.” And it kept happening, people kept asking until finally we gave in and called some agents and said people keep asking us to do a book. And we found out that everyone in the publishing agency wanted to do it. So we put this out and it became a New York Times Bestseller, now in paperback. And the book is basically just telling you to take your family back. Visit DailyWildcat.com for the rest of the interview with Rev. Run.

Discovering Tucson’s chilly summer treat — raspados By Ali Freedman ARIZONA SUMMER WILDCAT Raspados, Mexican sno-cones, fruit cones — whatever you may call them, this shaved ice and fruit mixture is one way to make the scorching Tucson summers bearable. The name comes from the Spanish verb “raspar,” or to scrape; the shaved or scraped ice that makes up the bulk of this treat is its namesake. Raspados are ubiquitous in Tucson and each place has its own take on the icy treat. In a traditional raspado, fruit in sweet syrup is drizzled over a heaping scoop of shaved ice. There

are additional add-ons that will appear with these treats: condensed milk, ice cream or, in some places, more chunks of fruit. Many of the drinks are topped with chile, tamarind or saladitos, that is, salted dried plums. Because of the variations, raspados can range in texture and thickness. You may find yourself with an icy, liquidy fruit drink or a creamy and thick milkshake-type concoction. While some of the flavor combinations may be odd, they are worth a try. Take the mangoyada, which is a pairing of mango in sweet syrup and chile powder. It may seem like a clash of flavors, but the two meld together to

created a savory yet dessert-like treat. One shop a few miles west of the UA that has a great reputation for its raspados is Oasis Fruit Cones. The small building across from a strip mall at St. Mary’s Road and Riverside Drive has a great traditional raspado with an array of fruit flavors: coconut, mango, strawberry and more. Its brand of fruit cone is perfect for a hot Tucson day. The Tucson Mall also offers a great raspado stop. Conveniently placed for shoppers with a great open case to view all the flavor options, the stand is poised in the middle of the mall on the second story. If you’re looking for a good flavor to step into

the raspado world, check out watermelon. The bright pink syrup with cubed chunks of watermelon paired with crushed ice is delicious. Juice N Fruit Raspados is another raspado stop south of 12th Avenue and Nevada Street with a good selection of flavors and a wide variety of options with and without ice cream. Its Spanish-English menu offers all the traditional options and their Web site allows you to peruse before heading out — a great option for newcomers. Another popular Tucson raspado stop is Los Pollos Raspados. This place at Sixth Avenue and 36th Street offers the same great heaping icy treats

with the same flavors but the quality never disappoints. Its exotic flavors and creamy ice cream paired together after a taco or two is the way to go. While the world of raspados may seem complex, with a little bravery jumping into the world of new and exciting Mexican flavors can be fun. More than fruit cones or snow cones, raspados are a little taste of Tucson’s culture. South of Broadway Boulevard or at the mall, raspados are never too far from reach. This list only touches on a small selection from the plethora of raspado stands Tucson has to offer, so why not go out and find a favorite of your own?

Best indie music of the summer

Cobra Starship coming to Tucson

By Tauni Malmgren ARIZONA SUMMER WILDCAT Summer has come and gone so fast. In a haze of heat, all of the exciting vacations, productive internships and ultra slow lazy days have blurred together, leaving some students wondering where all the time went. But while you were checking out exotic locations or cramming for summer session courses, the music world has been splashing around some refreshing new tunes for you to enjoy.

By Emily Moore ARIZONA SUMMER WILDCAT

Bibio, Ambivalence Avenue:

The album, sharing the same name as the song, is what you’d want your summer to sound like. Electronic in medium, acoustic in aesthetics and carefree in atmosphere, Bibio creates a soundtrack you’d hear riding the coast of heaven. Like a childhood keepsake box, Ambivalence Avenue has soulfully explored and collected a variety of genres — funk, folk, found sounds, hip-hop, ambient and indie rock — and put them together through the lens of a quirky, Boards of Canada-loving Brit who sometimes sings over the tracks.

Team Teamwork, Ocarina of Rhyme:

What happens when Zelda and Link meet Jay-Z and Common? Who knows how Team Teamwork came up with this concept, but thank the novelty music gods they did. Familiar songs from Nintendo 64’s soundtrack to “Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time” (think the Lost Woods and the Great Fairy’s Fountain) are topped with tweaked, bumping beats and street credited rappers, finally making Escalade-worthy nerd music.

Amazing Baby, Rewild:

With a throwback to ’60s psychedelic

photo of Discovery by Alex John Beck/photo courtesy of Beggers Group

rock legends, an ’80s electro-pop feel and a whole lotta summer buzz, Amazing Baby toured their debut album with good friends MGMT. Behind the heavy hype, this is a coming-of-age band that has a wide variety of influences making Rewild fun and entertaining. “Headdress” is among the best the album has to offer: a catchy summer love tune served up with reeling guitar, a foottapping beat and dreamy vocals.

Discovery, LP:

Two members from Vampire Weekend and Ra Ra Riot have teamed up together to create a super fun, super sexy summer soundtrack with a kickin’ remake of Jackson 5’s “I Want You Back” and lyrics that promise to leave before your mama wakes up in the morning. Discovery’s crisp electro beats and hipper-than-thou pop vocals provide maximum freshness for your recommended summer music dose.

Singles worth mentioning Dirty Projectors, “Stillness is the Move,” from Bitte Orca

Innovative, titillating and mind-boggling, this song is some serious brain candy.

Pains Of Being Pure At Heart, “Young Adult Friction,” from Pains Of Being Pure At Heart

Surprise, surprise — Pains Of Being Pure At Heart churn youth-oriented dream pop perfectly fit for any summer romance.

Yo La Tengo, “Here to Fall,” from Popular Songs

OK, so this album isn’t released yet, but who cares? We have a little summer teaser for their upcoming September album. Thank you, Yo La Tengo, thank you!

If you’re in for a fun-filled night at a giant dance party, then look no further than Club Congress. This Wednesday check out Cobra Starship as they make “them good girls go bad,” with friends the Audition, Friday Night Boys and Skeet Skeet. This concert is sure to make a “Hot Mess” just one day after Cobra Starship’s third selftitled album is released. Come and dance the night away while singing along to the No. 1 alternative song on iTunes, “Good Girls Go Bad.” For a band named after words written on the back of front-man Gabe Saporta’s favorite vintage jacket, Cobra Starship has collaborated with some big names and label mates including Travis McCoy of Gym Class Heroes, Patrick Stump of Fall Out Boy and William Beckett of The Academy Is…. The band’s first single, “Bring It (Snakes on a Plane),” jump-started its career and Cobra Starship has been soaring ever since. The band consists of lead vocalist Saporta, guitarist Ryland Blackinton, bassist Alex Suarez, drummer Nate Novarro and keytarist Victoria Asher. It has undergone major member changes since 2005. This concert is sure to be a “Guilty Pleasure” while the quintet conjures “The Church of Hot Addiction.” The lineup is definitely going to “Bring It.” Tickets are going fast and have already sold out at several locations on the tour. Pete Wentz may be one of the reasons the band is famous, but the music definitely speaks for itself. Get ready to hear new sounds with some old ones thrown in. Throw your fangs up!

Olson: closure for a legend By Lance Madden ARIZONA SUMMER WILDCAT The irony was clearer than HD when Lute Olson stepped up to the podium to give an eight-minute speech before thousands of glassyeyed spectators in McKale Center Saturday. He wore khakis and a red polo with Arizona’s Block A on the left breast — the same Block A that was painted on the court this past spring, replacing the navy circle at halfcourt that read “Lute & Bobbi Olson Court.” The literal uprooting of his name from the court was a sign of the program moving forward into the hands of new head coach Sean Miller, but that doesn’t mean Olson’s accomplishments over the past decade will be forgotten. “The Lute Era is not over — not as long as guys keep accomplishing things,” said former Wildcat and current San Antonio Spurs forward Richard Jefferson. “A new era is beginning, but Lute’s is not over. You look at Luke (Walton) and he’s an extension of John Wooden’s era through his dad. Eras from people like that never end.” “As all of us continue our careers,” Jefferson added, “our accomplishments and our children will all be an

extension of the Lute Olson era.” And yet, closure had finally come for Lute Olson — a coach, teacher, father, friend and legend. “An event like this has to be a little bittersweet for Coach,” said Wildcat luminary Steve Kerr. “It signifies that it’s over. It wasn’t easy for him.” Olson’s retirement came at the tail-end of a downward-spiraling exit from a quarter-century of coaching in Tucson that included an unexpected leave of absence, which he initially said was not “a health scare, but rather a personal matter that needs my undivided attention,” then calling it a “medical condition that was not life-threatening, but serious enough to require time away.” In the past couple of years, Olson had a stroke, went through a divorce and suddenly retired without saying goodbye to the community that has treated him like a king since he arrived from Iowa in 1983. It’s not the way Tucson nor the basketball community wanted to see him leave. But on Saturday, Olson was able to close out his career on the highest of all highs, being honored with a two-hour retirement program before an estimated 6,500 fans and dozens of former UA players and coaches, his family and a handful of admin-

istrative figures from the past three decades. It was more than he ever imagined. “This is mind-boggling, the number of you that have shown up to be involved in this,” Olson said. “Speaking on behalf of my family, I can’t say how much I appreciate this.” Finally, Olson had the chance to say goodbye to his most faithful fans,

from young to old. Diehard Wildcat fans such as 75-year-old Phyllis Goodman, who has held season tickets since before McKale Center was even erected, attended the ceremony. Another fan, Doug Tepper, was dressed in Olson’s signature coaching apparel: Khakis, white shirt, red

Editor’s note: Throughout the tribute, former players, friends and family members reminisced, telling their fondest stories of legendary head coach Lute Olson to the crowd of more than 6,000. Here is a brief compilation of the stories and thoughts about Arizona’basketball’s former leader: • Olson's grandson, Matt Brase, discussed trips to the beach with his grandfather, who challenged his grandchildren to guess which times they would reach certain check-

points during the road trip. Olson would guess his own times, always managing to speed up and slow down the car to hit his time perfectly. “We thought he was the smartest man in the world,” Brase said. • Former Wildcat Sean Elliott reminisced about a time when a “cheap” Olson lent him money for a few McDonald's cheeseburgers. Before Elliott got a chance to order, Olson added, “Bring me my receipt and change.” • At least three of the day's speakers brought up Bobbi Olson's famous apple pancakes. Elliott jokingly said that Olson didn't need to do recruit illegally

– the pancakes got the job done. • A longtime friend of Olson, former ASU coach Bill Frieder talked about the friendship their wives had and their expensive shopping habits. They would spend so much money together, Frieder said, that if their credit cards had been stolen they would not bother to report it; the thieves would spend less than their wives. Frieder also said that Bobbi once let guard Steve Kerr and his teammates “sit in the hot tub with a sixpack” while Olson was on a recruiting trip. True or not, Frieder said more seriously that Olson “did it the right way.”

• Philadelphia 76ers guard Andre Iguodala claims to be the first man to make Olson curse. After complaining about the lack of foul calls in one practice, Olson stopped play and told Iguodala to “Stop female dog, female dog, female dog,” the Sixer put it, keeping the language clean. • Iguodala also credited Olson for Mike Bibby's “colossal earrings” along with the Bentleys and Rolls Royces in the parking lot. “The checks we cash on the 1st and th 15 ... It’s not just today (that Olson affects us), it’s everyday of our career, everyday of our lives,” Iguodala said.

Football begins, questions remain By Kevin Zimmerman ARIZONA SUMMER WILDCAT Four days into official practice, the Arizona Wildcat football team has yet to answer the questions raised by fans and media. Where is the linebacker depth? Who's going to start at quarterback? But that's OK, coaches said. “We're not making decisions anytime soon,” offensive coordinator Sonny Dykes said of the quarterback situation. “We've got to give these guys the opportunity to come out here and have a chance to compete over a certain amount of practices.” The same theory holds true for the position battles across the board. The practices have given head coach Mike Stoops and Co. a good

look at their freshmen and community college transfers, and just two days into pads, practice is mostly about learning the system. Once that happens, then the coaching staff can make final decisions about who starts and who does not. “Everything is real complex, it's all about technique and having your fundamentals right,” said freshmen safety Adam Hall. “In high school you could get away with natural ability and raw talent but here, everything has to do with your drops, your technique, from lifting to being in the classroom.” Both sophomore Matt Scott and redshirt sophomore Nick Foles have been getting nearly equal amount of reps at quarterback. Likewise, they have shared days of struggle and

days of success. On Saturday, the offense sputtered with the two-minute drill and from what the coaches were telling the players on the field, it was clear they were unhappy. But the defense has been living up to expectations of a unit that should return eight starters. “Shut us up!” defensive players challenged the offense – the offense didn't. In the second, third and fourth practices, Arizona quarterbacks have gotten picked off. Cornerback Trevin Wade continued to be a ballhawk Friday, deflecting one pass and intercepting another during the final half-hour of practice. Sunday's practice ended with an interception as Scott flung a pass towards the endzone with the clock

THEY SAID IT

“People ask me all the time about Lute Olson, and the one word that comes to mind is `class’. He is a class act. He embodies the definition of the word.” — Athletic Director Jim Livengood “I want to ask Coach how it felt driving home from McKale for four straight seasons and never lose, 71 games in a row...One promise I’ll make to everyone is, those same characteristics that you came to know and love about our program – the style, the class, doing things the right way – will be embodied in the future.” — Head coach Sean Miller “I don’t want anyone to forget what he has done for all of us. Not just those of us that played under him, but all of us.” — Former player Sean Elliott “My time here was kind of short, but in my two years with Coach Olson, he turned a boy into a man. He taught me so much about basketball and about life.” — Former player Andre Iguodala “Whether you were on the first team that got this thing rolling or on a team twenty years later, it doesn’t seem to matter. We’re all a part of the Wildcat family.” — Lute Olson “I think one of the greatest things about the University of Arizona is the family, not only the players but his own family. Not all of us played together, but we felt like we did.” — Former player Luke Walton

running down to zero. Junior cornerback Mike Turner got under the ball and caught the pass in the endzone before coaches blew their whistles, signaling the end of another strong defensive outing. “(I) think we're competing harder, the last couple of days have been much better,” Stoops said Saturday. “Obviously, the offense is going to take a little bit of time to get caught up, but they will and I like the way we're working.” Dykes said the offense has been installed in thirds, meaning the practice was the first in which the new players had been challenged with using the entire scheme. He went out of his way to give praise to the offensive line, a FOOTBALL, page 12

BRIEF

Simon doesn't show for Lute celebration

Most of the greatest figures of the Arizona men’s basketball program were in attendance for Lute Olson’s retirement celebration in McKale Center on Saturday, but there were some faces that were obviously missed — Channing Frye and Gilbert Arenas come to mind. Tom Tolbert (1986-88) also didn’t show because his son’s baseball team went farther in a tournament than expected. But the biggest omission on Saturday was arguably Miles Simon, the MVP and face of Arizona’s beloved 1997 national championship. Simon served as an assistant coach for the Wildcats from 2005 until 2008, when the school announced that his contract was not being renewed, allegedly without any reason from UA athletics director Jim Livengood, other than the university was headed in a different direction. The UA and Simon don’t have the greatest past, outside of the national title. Simon sued the UA in 1998 for releasing his grades, leading the Kansas City Star newspaper to allege that he was slipping through academic loopholes at the UA. The $1 million lawsuit stated that he was “held up to public ridicule and his privacy was invaded, and he was humiliated.” The lawsuit was dismissed by two judges. — Lance Madden

Defensive upperhand continued from page 11 unit with question marks of its own after losing offensive tackle Eben Britton to the NFL. Arizona will continue practices throughout the week and will move their workouts to Fort Huachuca, Ariz., Thursday. “It felt good to get back going and hitting a little bit,” senior safety Cam Nelson said after suiting up in pads. “(We're) just out here trying to get some work in so we can bring the town back another big bowl game.”

Injury report

Running back Nic Grigsby, whose ankle was caught in a pile

Friday, was back at practice on Saturday and Sunday. “My ankle got bent pretty bad, and it’s still pretty sore right now,” Grigsby said. “I told coach Stoops, ‘Man, I’m on another mission, I can’t miss out on practice.’” “I don’t like spectating,” Grigsby added. “I was thinking like man, I’m going to be in a visor with a piece of a paper in my hand coaching.” Tight end Rob Gronkowski and receiver Delashaun Dean have sat out of the team drills for the last few practices because of unspecified soreness. Meanwhile, tight end Tyler Lyon has been sidelined with a knee injury.

Amy Adams, as Julie Powell, poses in front of a portrait of Meryl Streep who plays Julia Child in ‘Julie & Julia.’

‘Julie & Julia’ satisfies, frustrates with its two stories By Steven Kwan ARIZONA SUMMER WILDCAT Has your mom or dad ever told you that you couldn’t have dessert until you eat your vegetables? You’ll feel the same sort of frustration when watching “Julie & Julia.” The movie is based on the memoirs “Julie & Julia” by Julie Powell and “My Life in France” by Julia Child, and posthumously completed by Alex Prud’homme. It follows Julie Powell (Amy Adams) and Julia Child (Meryl Streep) as they find meaning through cooking. Powell is a secretary at a government agency where the work is soulless and thankless, despite the admirable goal of creating a memorial for the Sept. 11 site

continued from page 11

in New York. She begins a blog documenting her year of cooking every recipe out of the first volume of Child’s “Mastering the Art of French Cooking.” Child is a newly wed wife in post-WWII France where she strives to occupy herself while her diplomat husband Paul (Stanley Tucci) works. She learns how to cook classic French cuisine and soon develops her classic cookbook. Nora Ephron, who wrote and directed, tries to blend the two narratives into a grand, romantic message of empowerment and self-discovery, but ends up with a story that collapses like a poorly made soufflé. The opening sequence sets the

pattern for the rest of the movie. Powell and husband Eric (Chris Messina) make the long trek to their new home in Queens, N.Y. Then we see Child and husband Paul head to their apartment in Paris, France. Child’s apartment oversees the center of Paris and is full of precise and vibrant colors and designs. It’s the kind of setting that makes you want to linger just a little while longer. Powell moves into a drab studio apartment above a pizzeria. Like Powell, you want to move on as quickly as possible. And that’s the main problem with the entire movie: Child’s early years in France look and sound more interesting than Powell’s year of cooking. REVIEW, page 16

tie and navy blazer. Tepper’s hair and eyebrows were died white, and “Lute!” was painted in red across the middle of his face. More than 25 years of emotion swirled around the arena like an easy summer breeze. At one point during the ceremony, UA senior point guard Nic Wise laughed while Olson’s grandson Matt Brase, shared a story of the coach trying to use a boogie board in California. Just a moment later, Wise buried his face in his hands and wiped the corner of his eyes. Olson was one of seven coaches

Wise has played for in the past seven years. “I don’t know if there’s another program in the country where players of three decades can have such a close bond with each other,” Brase said as Wise covered his face. Added former Wildcat-great Sean Elliott: “I never played a minute on this court with (former player) Pete Williams, but every time I see Pete, we hug like we played four years together.” Olson, whom UA President Robert Shelton called the “greatest coach and leader of men in the

history of college basketball,” will return in the fall to McKale Center as a spectator, watching as his legacy continues through Miller and the current team — even if they’re playing on a newly painted court that no longer boasts his name. And he’ll be able to do so in peace and comfort. Finally, Olson has received closure. “From the bottom of my heart and the hearts of my family, thank you for all the great years,” Olson said to conclude the program. “And go Wildcats.”

Do-it-yourself vanilla ice cream is easy to make. This batch was made in the Arizona Summer Wildcat newsroom.

DIY ice cream: Shake it up to cool it down By Ali Freedman ARIZONA SUMMER WILDCAT Have you ever wanted to make your own ice cream? Are you bored with nothing to do? You can make an icy treat and get a work out — all at the same time. This easy timekiller makes it all possible.

What you need:

• 1.5 tablespoon sugar • 1/2 cup milk (2% or higher fat content) or half & half • 1/4 teaspoon vanilla • 6 tablespoons rock salt or 12 tablespoons of table salt • 2 pint-size plastic food storage bag (Ziploc type) • 2 gallon-size plastic food storage bag • 1 garbage bag • Duct tape • Ice cubes

Mix the ingredients in a large bowl until the sugar dissolves. (At this point, you can add in flavors besides the vanilla, such

as chocolate or another flavored syrup, to taste.) Transfer it to a pint-sized bag. Seal it very well with tape. Cover the edge with duct tape. Place the pint bag into the other pint bag and seal again with tape. Repeat this step with the gallon-sized bags. The salt and ice mixture will leak into your ice cream if it is not well sealed. Fill up the garbage bag with enough ice so that it can completely cover the bags filled with the mixture. Add the salt and lightly shake the bag. Place the mixture-filled bags into the center and tie the garbage bag shut – the more knots the better. Wrap the bag in duct tape until it forms a ball. Get a friend and throw the ball back and forth for 10 to 15 minutes. (Wearing gloves for this step is a good idea since the salt will lower the ice’s temperature and make the ball quite cold.) Cut the ball open. Rinse each bag as you remove it to ensure the salt does not get into the ice cream. Serve and enjoy.

UA alumna enchants, soothes with new album By Ada Dieke ARIZONA SUMMER WILDCAT

Photos courtesy of Lizary Rodríguez-Ríos

Lizary Rodríguez-Ríos earned her Ph.D. for Harp Performance from the UA and was the first person to win the UA’s Centennial Achievement Award. Her new album, Harp Therapy (inset), was recently released in the U.S.

What to do before classes start By Emily Moore ARIZONA SUMMER WILDCAT So school is just around the corner and you’re all moved in with nothing to do. Luckily, you’re reading the Arizona Summer Wildcat, which is equipped with plenty of good-time ideas. Baking or cooking is always fun and it’s probably something you’re not going to have a lot of time for during the school year. It’s also a great way to meet new people; everyone loves something free and edible. Baking is also a great mode for roommate bonding. It will eat up a couple of hours and afterwards — bon appétit! Most likely there will be tons of people just as bored as you are. The campus is huge. Why not start a scavenger hunt? It’s loads of fun. Come up with a quirky list of random things, people, anything; just get creative. Grab some friends, a camera or two, and knock on some other people’s doors and invite them to join in the festivities. You’ll make new friends, learn the campus and have fun all at once. Feel free to get competitive and let the games begin. Check out the UA Mall. Don’t be fooled by the name, the Mall is just a huge area of grass in the middle of campus, but that doesn’t mean it can’t be fun. There are loads of fun activities to participate in. Ultimate Frisbee, soccer, football — start your own game or join someone else’s. Clubs, shops and free food can also be found on the Mall. Local artists tend to play on the stage so check out the free music. Whether it is music, sports or people you crave, you’ll most definitely find something fun to do on the Mall.

REVIEW continued from page 12

Two words: turtle pond. Check it out right off of Park Avenue and Second Street. It’s a fun way to spend some extra time and the park area is nice. The whole area makes you forget you’re in Tucson. Try having a picnic and visit the turtles. Afterwards you can go check out the fun on University Boulevard, with enough shops and food to please anyone. Among your campus explorations go visit the Student Recreation Center. It’s right on the corner of Highland Avenue and Sixth Street. From ellipticals to racquet ball courts, The Rec Center has it all. There’s also a pool in the back. Catch some rays and do some laps before school starts; the heat almost makes it mandatory. If you’re still up for some quasi-exercise, walk a few blocks to the sand volleyball courts at Park Student Union. It’s a fun way to meet people and start some competitive action. Show off your skills, or lack thereof, and enjoy yourself. If you still find some extra time on your hands, start a dance party in your dorm or apartment. It’s a fun way to get to know your neighbors and burns loads of calories. Play some amazingly funky tunes and go crazy. If your music doesn’t cut it, go check out The Rock, only a few blocks away (at Park Avenue and Ninth Street), and rock out to some live music. No matter what you crave, the UA has tons of fun for anyone under the glaring sun. Be sure to drink lots of water before, during and after your adventures. The possibilities are endless. It’s up to you to spend your time wisely and make your own adventure. Get to it!

Streep gives notable performance as Child

This is not to fault the performance of Amy Adams, though. She portrays Powell with the right mix of sweet naïveté and maddening neurosis, from her rapid nervous talking during the visit by Amanda Hesser of The New York Times, to her look of disappointment after Child’s first editor, Judith Jones, cancels a dinner of boeuf bourguignon due to rain. With Ephron’s distinct bias in favor of Child’s life story, Powell’s year of cooking and struggling comes off as bland. An argument with Eric leads to him leaving and sleeping at his office, but thanks to Ephron’s seeming fear of portraying any domestic conflict beforehand, the resulting separation is more than a little baffling. Meryl Streep is Julia Child in this movie. Her uncanny performance brings to life Child’s spirit

of humor and optimism, recalling the joie de vivre of her PBS shows. Whether it’s discovering the deliciousness of sole meunière or buying all sorts of gadgets for her kitchen, watching Streep portray all of Child’s physical and vocal mannerisms is a joy — a shame it’s only half the movie. Fans of Julia Child and of cooking will find much to enjoy in “Julie & Julia.” (Ephron and cinematographer Stephen Goldblatt do a wonderful job of presenting the cooking sequences and the food in a delectable light.) But they will have to sit through overly rosy characters and an underdeveloped half of a story. C’est la vie. Rating: BRated PG-13 for brief strong language and some sensuality. 123 minutes

When have you heard of a student who has traveled the world, earned both a Master’s and Doctorate degree in Music Arts for Harp Performance from the UA, and plays an instrument bigger than herself? Lizary Rodríguez-Ríos, originally from Puerto Rico, is that person. Her newest album, Harp Therapy was released on July 26 in the United States as part of a CD release performance at 17th Street Market in Tucson, that day. This is her second release, the first being Harp Fusion. A multiple award-winner and the first harpist to win the UA’s Centennial Achievement Award, Rodriguez-Ríos converts her talent into utility for listeners. In an interview with the Arizona Summer Wildcat, she said her new album is for those “looking for something to relax and give inner peace.” Music from a harp seems divinely inspired. Standing at 6 feet and weighing 89 pounds, the harp’s 46 strings are played with two hands (no pinky fingers). The instrument, though physically intimidating, hums delicately to calm any emotional and/or physical strains. Harp Therapy beckons you to find the

nearest yoga studio and ask the instructor to pop it in for easing into the downward-facing dog position of the day. Her harp is accompanied by the violin and cello, as well as sounds of nature. Familiar classical songs are featured along with new compositions by RodríguezRíos herself. Her fingers on “Fantasia ‘Las 13 Lunas,’” work fleetingly fast, strums cascading about the listener’s ear. The harp on “The Little Fountain” builds and relaxes tremendously, instantly generating an image of falling water. “The Purple Bamboo-Chinese song” gives us a swirling performance, while “Morning Song” is an expansive song that welcomes a new day. While the harp seems too plucky on “Canon,” it is redeemed on “The Nightingale” and “Little Black Swans/Russian Lullaby,” communicating love and sensuality, respectively. Rodríguez-Ríos’s sophisticated performance on Harp Therapy creates a musically transfixing experience good for grounding any wandering soul. Grade: AHarp Therapy Libre Productions
