Ashley Taylor, an elementary education freshman, received a speeding ticket on the UNT campus for violating the 20-mph speed limit. The City of Denton Traffic Board Chairman John Crew has discovered many 20-mph speed limit signs that were not legally set through a city ordinance before they were posted.

Commission questions speed limits BY LISA GARZA

Senior Staff Writer Drivers cited for speeding on the streets along the UNT campus may have been unjustly prosecuted if the posted 20-mph speed limits were never legally set, says the head of Denton’s traffic board. In a March 31 letter to the city council, John Crew, chairman of the Traffic Safety Commission, wrote that he first brought the issue to the City Council’s attention six months ago so the problem could be fixed. “Citizens are being detained, ticketed, arrested, [having] property seized and criminally prosecuted for violating a law that

does not exist on paper,” Crew wrote. Crew, a member of the board appointed by the Council to review speed limits and other traffic-related issues, could not be reached for comment. Denton spokesman John Cabrales forwarded a copy of a 1966 city ordinance that he said contradicts Crew’s claims. “The maximum speed limit within the same block of any school, church or hospital shall be twenty (20) miles per hour,” according to the ordinance. Crew’s letter stated that the University of North Texas and Texas Woman’s University are considered institutions of higher

education under the law, not “schools.” “The city attorneys are aware of this problem and have done nothing to correct it,” Crew wrote. “They have allowed the city of Denton to become vulnerable to possible recourse by the numerous victims of our city’s unlawful criminal prosecution.” The city is still reviewing the issue, however. “The City has coordinated with both UNT and TWU on issues raised, as well reviewing the legislative history of laws passed giving authority to the universities to promulgate regulations,” said Cabrales in an e-mail. “It would be highly prudent ... to await

the completion of this review before reaching any conclusions which could prove erroneous and provide misinformation to the public.” Cabrales did not say when the review would be complete or what it would include. UNT Deputy Chief Ed Reynolds said that the citations issued on campus are for the Denton Municipal Court and Denton police officers also write speeding tickets. “The streets that run through campus and adjacent to campus are city streets,” Reynolds said. “We ... issue citations for speeding on those streets, but it’s based on the posted speed limits.”

Elliptical energy proposed BY A LEX CALAMS Staff Writer

PHOTO BY CLINTON LYNCH/VISUALS EDITOR

The UNT Spring Faculty Meeting and Awards Ceremony was held Tuesday to recognize more than 35 faculty members. A question-and-answer session with the provost followed the awards ceremony. Faculty members were welcomed to the event by Wendy Wilkins, the provost and vice president for academic affairs. Wilkins explained that UNT has had a good year, award-wise. “Our students continue to be successful in terms of national awards. UNT has the highest number of Goldwater scholars in the state of Texas on a very prestigious count of three,” Wilkins said. The awards, she said, are a sign of the university’s respect for what the faculty has done for UNT.

The Pohl Recreation Center will soon use new technology on its elliptical machines to utilize the energy that students and faculty create while working out. Re-Rev, a Clearwater, Fla., based company that is a subsidiary of SunQuest Energy, has worked with university officials since last year to retrofit the aerobic equipment. Glen Johansen, vice president of sales at Re-Rev, explained the process. “Re-Rev is set up to harness kinetic energy that comes off elliptical machines,” Johansen said. “That energy is in the form of direct current, or DC current, before we dynamically invert it with our converters into reusable alternating current, or AC current.” UNT’s elliptical machines are set up to power their display boards, and a “vast majority of energy goes to resistors in the back of the machine, wasting it in the form of heat,” Johansen said. Laurie Klein, assistant director of recreational sports, said the university is excited about the project, but it isn’t entirely finalized. “Funding is a question,” Klein said. “It’s a $20,000 project. We’ve talked with many other universities that use Re-Rev for ideas on the issue. Some get assistance from their sustainability offices on campus or local electric companies that have offered to help. At the University of Kansas, their student government association raised funds.

Our goal is to have the technology ready by next fall.”

Erin Davis, assistant to Office of Sustainability director Todd Spinks, said UNT began the project with hopes that it would be the first university in Texas to incorporate the technology. She said that Texas State University “beat us to the punch” when it retrofitted their 30 elliptical machines in December.

Denton hostel to open, third in Dallas area BY SHEA YARBOROUGH Senior Staff Writer

A UNT alumna will open a hostel in Denton, the third in the Dallas-Fort Worth area. Pat Spencer, a g raduate from the Mayborn School of Journalism, and her husband, David Spencer, are the owners of the Victorian home at 1328 My rtle St., a house that is tentatively scheduled to open in September as the Texas PAD Hostel for the Denton community, she said. “Students need a soft bed, a soft pillow, a warm blanket and a hot shower,” Pat Spencer said. $20 a night will provide a bed in the two-story home, a stocked k itchen and any cook ing utensil needed to prepare a meal, Spencer said. The antique house behind the old Home Depot will be set up for men to sleep downstairs and women to sleep upstairs. There will be separate bathrooms and free laundry facilities. “You come to our hostel and we are going to treat you like royalty,” Pat Spencer said. “Students need that.” Chuck Ca r penter, presi-

Students focus on sustainability BY TIM MONZINGO Contributing Writer

The School of Merchandising and Hospitality Management held its sixth annual Creating Consu mer E x per iences Symposium on Tuesday to discuss a growing trend in the field of customer-business relations. This yea r’s sy mposium focused on environmentally friendly and sustainable business practices, a topic of growing concern among industry professionals and consumers, especially in regions that rely heavily on tourism to support economic growth. The event featured three spea kers, including Erika Harms, the executive director of the Tourism Sustainability Council and senior adviser on tourism at the United Nations Foundation. Students also participated in a competition of ideas that dealt with sustainable business practices. The projects submitted included research on reusable shopping bags among American college students, the sale of envi-

ronmentally friendly clothing and the marketing of organic goods over the Internet. “Consumers are becoming much more aware of their footprint and the effect that they have on the environment, so they’re really trying to take charge of exactly what effect they have on the environment and trying to scale back, trying to make more purchases that are friendlier for the environment,” said Marissa Zorola, a senior lecturer in the school. Zorola said because people are more aware of their environmental impacts, hospitality and merchandising professionals need to look at ways to include eco-friendly options in products and travel accommodations. “It used to be that to be an environmentally friendly or green consumer, it was kind of expensive, but there are so many options nowadays — so many options in retail, so many options in where you can stay in a hotel that is green and green in their practices — that it’s really not that hard to do, and consumers are realizing that it’s

very easy to incorporate an environmental aspect,” she said. Danielle Sanchez, a hospitality management senior who attended the symposium, said that there is a growing need for environmental awareness in the industry. “In the hospitality industry, they tend to have a lot of waste through the paper goods that they use, through the food that gets thrown in the Dumpster every single day and goes uneaten,” she said. “This is a result, I think, of an abundance that we’ve enjoyed for quite a while. That abundance is not going to last for very long, so I think that there is a need for us to look locally.” Dee Wilson of the merchandising and hospitality management faculty said students in the field are becoming more aware of environmental issues. “I think, just in general, we’re all going to be more green and be more sustainable, so I think that’s a key thing that’s going on right now,” Wilson said. “Students are already thinking in that direction.”

Students compete in microwave cooking battle By Graciela R azo Senior Staff Writer

Two teams of amateur student chefs brought their most creative microwave recipes in an attempt to win a cooking competition that required quick, dorm roomfriendly food. Eight Kerr Hall residents competed in the dorm’s second Microwave Iron Chef competition Tuesday night with their best microwave recipes and a secret ingredient, cheese. Food Network’s television show “Iron Chef America” was the inspiration for the competition. “We wanted to see how creative our residents are,” said Rebecca Ramos, a Kerr Hall resident assistant and political science senior. “It gets them involved because they are the ones doing all the work.” The teams were allowed to spend up to $15 for ingredients, then were given the secret ingredient before they started the 45-minute cooking spree. The winning recipe was Rice Exotica, a rice dessert made by Brooke Otten, a chemistry sophomore; Dorie Mishael, an art freshman; Melissa McCoy, an anthropology sophmore; and Tyler Boyd, a history sophomore.

orative effort from Alesha Mays, a psychology freshman; Shannon Hughes, an interdisciplinary studies freshman; Leeanna Castro, a speech-language pathology freshman; and Telisha Smith, a fashion merchandising freshman. Mays said they all came up with different parts to the recipe and had fun cooking together. “I think we did really good,” Mays said. “It was really fun even though I had never heard of a Microwave Iron Chef before.” Ben Taylor, a judge and Kerr hall director, said he was not sure what he would be eating by the sight of the teams’ strange ingredients, but that the decision to pick a winner was a difficult one. “It was a close one, and even though I’m not a huge fan of coconut, I got past it because it was really good,” Taylor said.

Sam Jung, owner of J Sushi and hospitality management junior, opened his business April 5 with the help of the School of Merchandising and Hospitality Management. “I’ve taken a year and a half of courses that really connect with what I’m doing,” Jung said. “UNT has helped me prepare information to get my business started and taught me networking skills that helped make my dream come true.” Jung began saving money to open his own business when he was 18.

is now 23 and has set up a working restaurant in four months with the guidance of professors. “The classes taught at our university tie in with the real world and help students find the best fit for their academic and professional needs,” said Sua Jeon of the merchandising and hospitality faculty. “It makes me excited to see that our students can implement a project given in class and turn it into a real business plan.” Jung decided to open a restaurant in Denton because he felt that the city was lacking authentic sushi. Jung’s family has owned sushi restaurants throughout his life, and he said he knew that owning one is something he is passionate about. “I have been working at restaurants since I was 17, and it’s a lot harder than just jumping into it and starting fresh because there are so

many aspects that go into it, and Sam has done the proper t ra i n i ng to ma ke it f low and work well,” said Jamie Christensen, a waitress at J Sushi and psychology sophomore. Everyone on Jung’s staff is a UNT student. Because of the help Jung received from UNT in starting his business, he said he plans to donate money to start a fund for students who want to start their own businesses but do not have the means to do so. “I never thought it would happen this early, so I really hope that students who have a dream and a set of goals really believe in themselves to make Photo by Cristy Angulo/Staff Photographer it happen,” Jung said.

Airline fined for violating bumped passenger rules DALLAS (AP) — Southwest Airlines Co., which bumped more passengers than any U.S. carrier last year, has been fined $200,000 for violating rules on kicking passengers off oversold flights. The Tr a n s p or t at ion Department said Tuesday that it reviewed passenger complaints and found many cases of Southwest failing to promptly pay bumped passengers and give them written notices of their rights. Airlines are allowed to sell more seats than they have because some passengers don’t show up. In other businesses, that would violate laws against deceptive sales tactics. Airlines get a break under the theory that they can offer lower fares if they don’t get stuck with empty seats because of no-shows. Last year, Southwest bumped 13,113 passengers — 80 percent more than the next closest carrier. However, Southwest carried the most U.S. passengers, and travelers faced a greater chance of being bumped on some other airlines, with American’s regional affiliate, American Eagle, being

the worst. Federal rules require airlines to first ask for volunteers who will give up their seats in exchange for compensation. After that, airlines can begin to bump passengers who bought tickets. Most passengers bumped from flights are entitled to up to $800 in cash. Airlines are required to give bumped passengers a written statement detailing their rights and explaining how the airline decides who gets bumped when flights are oversold. The airlines can offer travel vouchers but only after telling the passengers that they are entitled to get cash or a check instead, and the amount that they’re owed. In a consent order, the Transportation Department said it would waive $90,000 of the civil penalty if Southwest doesn’t break the rules again in the next year. Also, Southwest can use $20,000 of the fine to develop ways to notify passengers of their rights and the airline’s policy on overselling flights. In the consent order dated Tuesday, the company said it mostly follows the rules — the number of violations was not

The airline also said it would give customers more notice of their rights when they buy tickets on the company website.

Mean Green lands two recruits, adds depth BY SEAN GORMAN Senior Staff Writer

“I am excited about playing for a team that has been to the NCAA Tournament. I think I can come in and help right away...”

W it h memor ies of h i s men’s team’s run to the NCAA Tournament intact in the minds of the Mean Green faithful, UNT head coach Johnny Jones has stayed busy, landing two recruits for next season. Istrouma High School guard Ronald McGhee and Lon Morris Junior College transfer forward Alonzo Edwards make up the 2010 recruiting class for the Mean Green, which also has nine seniors returning. “I am excited about playing for a team that has been to t he NC A A Tou r na ment,” McGhee said to the Denton Record Chronicle. “I think I can come in and help right away by putting the ball in the hole.” A graduate of Klein Forest Hig h School i n Houston, Edwards played sparingly for the Nebraska Cornhuskers his freshman year and averaged 7.9 points and 3.2 rebounds a game at Lon Morris last season. Rated as one of the top 100 junior college prospects in the country by www.JUCOjunction. com, Edwards should help fill the vacancy at starting power forward left by the departure of senior forward Eric Tramiel. “He will make an immediate impact,” Jones said. “He is a very skilled post man who can really shoot it and can pass the

ball. He rebounds well and is a solid defender.” Tramiel, who was named t he 20 0 9 -2010 Su n Belt Conference Tournament MVP and was named to Third-Team All-Conference team, averaged 12.9 points per game and six rebounds per game last season. This wasn’t the first shot UNT took at adding Edwards, as it has tried to sign the 6-foot8-inch forward last offseason before he elected to play at Lon Morris. “We have had great success with junior college players and transfers and hope that Alonzo turns out to be another great success story,” Jones said. Having three senior guards start this season motivated Jones to pursue McGhee, a Louisiana native. T he 6 -foot-5-i nch h ig h school senior earned first team all-state honors while averaging 22.4 points per game last season.

ARLINGTON (AP) — Texas Rangers right fielder Nelson Cruz was put on the 15-day disabled list Tuesday, a day a f ter he reagg ravated h is strained right hamstring and had to come out of a game early for the third time in a week. Manager Ron Washington said Cruz had “only a firstdegree strain” but was very sore. Washing ton sa id t he slugger was going to have to miss at least five to seven games and the DL move was made because the Rangers couldn’t afford to be short on the bench that long. “It’s hard to be out there and you can’t complete any games,” Cruz said. “Sometimes you want to run, you want to steal some bases or make some plays, and you aren’t allowed to do it 100 percent.” The Rangers later optioned st r ug g l i ng catcher Taylor Te a g a r de n ( .0 37 b a t t i n g average, 1 for 27 with 17 strikeouts in 10 games) to Triple-A Oklahoma City and recalled catcher Max Ramirez. Jarrod Saltalamacchia (upper back stiffness), the starting catcher on opening day, was activated from the 15-day DL and optioned to Oklahoma City, where he had already played six games on a rehab assignment. “We’ve struggled at that position in the early going here, and want to give Taylor an opportunity to go down

Cruz left the first two games of the team’s series in Boston last week when his hamstring tightened up, then was the DH for the series finale Thursday. He didn’t play Friday night in the series opener against the Tigers.

At www.ESPN.com, McGhee is ranked 73 in the list of top shooting guards in the country and w w w.Hoopscooponline ranks him in the top 350 players in the nation. “He has played all three spots w ith a great deal of success,” Jones said. “He can really shoot it, creates for himself and teammates off the dribble, and is a tremendous defender.” Success in the state where he enjoyed his entire playing career is nothing new for Jones, who signed Louisiana native senior guard Josh White and junior forward Kedrick Hogans out of high school. “I was in Louisiana for a long time and still have a lot of friends there,” Jones said. “I know the coaches.” The pairing will help the Mean Green in its effort to return to the NCAA Tournament after UNT fell short to Kansas State in the first round of the tournament last season.

Washing ton said he put Guerrero in the outfield with the stipulations of no diving catches and to just get the ball to the cutoff man if it got past him. Then the manager indicated he was partially joking. “The one t hing I bad ly don’t want to do is hurt Vlad,” Washington said. “Now I can’t control his reactions. It’s just a running joke. He’s a pro.” Washington said the loss of Cruz wouldn’t accelerate the return of second baseman Ian Kinsler, who Tuesday played the second of three rehabilitation games at Double-A Frisco. Kinsler has been on the disabled list since spraining his right ankle during spring training. “We have a plan with Kinsler, we want to finish the process,” Washington said. “We’re not going to push him. He has two more days to play. He is going to play two more days.” If there are no setbacks, K i nsler w i l l be act ivated before Friday night’s game in Seattle.

Athlete of the Week: Junior becomes team leader By Ben Baby Staff Writer

On a gusty Monday afternoon, the UNT tennis team poses for t he ca mera w it h its new shiny prop: the Sun Belt Conference championship trophy, accompany ing the team for its celebration pictures. Afterward, junior Madura Ranganathan strolls off the court with a beaming smile, displaying her satisfaction in the team’s conquest. Beneath the grin lies a fierce, competitive athlete who has chewed up her competition all season, earning her the No.1 spot in the team’s line-up and an All-Conference selection. “She’s a leader by example, and that’s what I’m so proud of,” head coach Sujay Lama sa id. “She a lways had t he ta lent, she’s a great tennis player, but I think for me, her maturation as a person, that’s the key.” Ranganathan, who is 9-8 in singles matches this season, has matured from when she first came to the U.S. and to UNT, growing into one of the most talented players in the region. She serves as a leader on the team that is ranked No. 60 i n t he Ca mpbel l/ ITA National Rankings, the highest the program has ever received. Born in Leuven, Belgium, the junior stayed there until she was three, then she moved to Coimbatore, India. It was also there that she began to emerge as one of the nation’s budding stars.

Editorial Shake: City demolishes elderly woman’s home After winning the city of Denton’s bid to demolish a house at 721 Ruddell Street, a private demolition crew rolled up with a bulldozer and went to work April 21. They destroyed most of the house despite pleas from a neighbor who was planting flowers in her yard. At some point, after enough damage was done to completely total the home, the crew noticed the address number posted on the outside of the home — 724. They tore down the wrong house. Mistakes happen. Everyone has a moment — some have many — when amid the distraction of an otherwise routine activity, the sobering feeling of an instant awakening leaps into the mind and he or she can utter just one solitary word — “oops.” Leaving the stove on when you leave the house, desperately using the force of your body to push open a door that reads “pull,” staying up all night to complete a research paper that’s due next week — the feeling’s the same, but the implications are vastly different. For the demolition crew the actions that caused that spinetingling feeling will probably — and the Editorial Board believes — cost them heavily. Francis Howard, the 69-year-old homeowner lives in Frisco with her son, but for 47 years her family called the nowdestroyed house “home.” She said she doesn’t know what to say. “I just want [it] put back together,” Howard said. “I think I need a lawyer.” We couldn’t agree more, Francis. Nod: UNT students pass Green Fee Student voters agreed to a $5 Green Fee to be inacted spring 2011. The money will help the university pursue its goals of reducing its carbon footprint. For the fee to have a truly long term effect, the money collected must be used for the specific purposes of achieving carbon neutrality, increasing environmental awareness and acquiring a fleet of 100 percent electric vehicles. There are signs we are moving in the right direction. The Pohl Recreation Center is set to outfit all elliptical machines with a device to make them more energy efficient. The device will conserve much of the power lost in the form of kinetic energy by converting it into reusable alternating current. The technology should be in place by next fall and will cost the university $20,000. Advancements like these are signs that UNT is continuing on the right path and blazing a trail among colleges pursuing sustainability.

Greeks, Daily mend differences

Fou r p e ople s at dow n together to talk on Thursday about the view that the Daily doesn’t like greeks and isn’t covering enough of the good t h i ngs g reek s accompl ish here at UNT. A s t he conversat ion prog ressed, we qu ick ly discovered the problem — a serious lack of communication and understanding. The greek community and the Daily staff have simply not been taking the time to sit down and listen to each other. We d iscovered t hat t he Da i ly had its ow n stereotypes to deal with, and that a previous culture at the paper may have unfairly been antigreek, but that culture has changed. We spoke with Editor-inC h ief Sha i na Zucker a nd Views Editor Josh Pherigo. They learned of the stereotypes and challenges facing

greeks, our organizationa l structure, and all the legal governing, risk management procedures and conduct policies t hat encompass greek life. We found shared beliefs about the risks of common stereotypes, and found that we were connected in t he passion a nd dedicat ion to our own organizations. The answer for our fellow g reeks is t hat t he Da ily is t r y i ng to cover t he most newsworthy events and isn’t excluding anyone. With around 400 student organizations, there are just too ma ny event s to w r ite about. The school paper has to also cover UNT community events alongside Dallas-Fort Worth news, and it’s hard to squeeze ever ything in a few pages. T he ot her a n s wer is to recog n i ze a l l t he posit ive

pieces t hat t he Daily does write about greeks and not solely focus on the negative articles. Also, the paper has a right to publish negative articles. The negative articles (such as the ones about Sigma Nu a nd Kappa A lpha Psi) a re what ma ke g reek life look i nw a rd, sel f-a na ly z e a nd strive to improve. To t h e c h a pt e r pr e s idents and public relations cha i r person s, t he ed itors offered some tips for getting published. The best start is to e-mail the Daily a press release to let them know what’s going on. Basically, why is this newsworthy? Convince them it’s worth read i ng about a nd it w i l l likely be in the paper. Also, e-mail them a week in advance of the event, as the paper’s content and layout are set a week in advance.

Additionally, the Daily will prev iew or cover a n event but not both. The most important tip is to understand t hat persistence pays off — sometimes ideas get drowned in f looded inboxes or lost in a stack of papers. Greek ambassadors — a new initiative started by the office of Greek Life — and the Daily have agreed to start meeting with Greek Life, council presidents and chapter presidents on a yearly basis when there are editorin-chief transitions. A ll four of us feel that a lot of good will come out of this new and strong relationship between greek life and the Daily. Mark Logsdon is a political science sophomore.

Tips for surviving summer internships A lt hough t he concept of summer break has become but a hazy memory for me, most of you will enjoy your time in ways I fantasize about whi le logg ing my ex pense reports. There’s sand volleyba ll, sun bat hing, outdoor concerts and f loating in the disease-infested waters of Party Cove. Then there are the others — the ones who’ll be working a su m mer i nter nsh ip. I’m ta lk ing about the students who will be in the office when the rest of you are passing out on a stranger’s f loor. Yes, nothing says, “This is the greatest summer of my life, thanks for asking,” like sporting a suit and tie in the middle of a Texas summer. I still remember my first summer internship. I worked

60 hours a week t r y ing to pr ov e my s el f at a w el lrespected advertising agency in Dallas. Things were going quite well until t he receptionist fou nd me nappi ng i n t he C EO’s pr iv ate bat h room . Personally, I think the security escort was a bit excessive, but it probably didn’t help that I prefer to nap in the nude. You won’t have the same problem, I hope. But for t hose w ho a re feeling dejected about basically becoming a company’s unpaid coffee barista, here are a few pointers to help you last the summer.

1) Tu r n up t he br ig htness level on your computer monitor. The luminous glow

of your screen will build a base tan that rivals any afternoon in the sun. F o r a r i c h e r, b r o n z e appea ra nce, t r y spend i ng your 15-minute lunch break in the conference room with the largest concentration of f lorescent light bulbs.

2) A f ter scaveng ing t he lef tovers of a la rge cl ient meeting, start a sma ll f ire in t he ha ndicap sta l l of a restroom. It’s exactly like a back ya rd cookout, except the smell of urine is slightly stronger. 3) Sne a k i n a s m a ny 5-minute naps as humanly possible throughout the day. The amount of sleep will be the same, more or less, as if you had been able to sleep in

like a normal college student. (Refer to above pa rag raph regarding cautions of napping on the job.)

4) Chug an entire carafe of room-temperature coffee while an intern from Human Resources holds you upside down. It’s been scientifically proven* to give the same buzz as your standard beer bong. Now go out there and show t hat compa ny who’s boss. Just be su re to remember the cream and sugar for the coffee. *A nd by “sc ient i f ic a l l y proven,” I mea n not at a ll true.

“I think there are good and bad things about it. In an ideal sense, it could work out because Arizona is high in illegal immigration and crime, as long as the police or whoever is enforcing the law doesn’t abuse the power. It may need to be monitored from a national level.”
