The offense will have nine returning starters, four of which were a part of an offensive line that only allowed 12 sacks all season. “It’s going to be Nathan’s job to manage our offense, to be a distributor of the football and make good decisions,” Todd Dodge said. “I feel confident that he’s going to do that.” The new quarterback will a lso have a strong ground at tack w it h sophomore Lance Dunbar in the backfield.

Council approves bike lanes, improvements in Denton BY T.S. MCBRIDE Senior Staff Writer

The Aug. 16 passage of a downtown revitilization plan may provide UNT and Texas Woman’s University students with bike lanes connecting the campuses to a revitalized downtown. The Downtown Implementation Plan is the result of a city-wide strategy, originally drafted in 1999, to set guidelines for Denton’s development over a 20-year period. As well as adding bike lanes connecting UNT and TWU to the downtown area, the plan includes a number of improvements to a 155 square acre area around downtown.

“One thing I would have liked back in my freshman year would have been to get to know Denton better,” said Jonathan Cortina, a radio, telev ision and film sophomore. “I’m just glad they’re looking after the safety of bike riders more.” During the Aug. 16 Council meeting to approve the plan, Mayor Mark Burroughs said the improvements would be added piecemeal, and not all may be implemented. The priorities include a measure to create a tax increment finance district in the downtown area and an estimated $4.1 million in improvements to Hickory Street near t he site of t he

future Denton County Transit Authority train station. “We ca l l t his a cata lyst project,” said Ron Menguita, development rev iew liason for the city, about the Hickory “Grand Street” project. “It will set the tone for downtown. See what we did on Hickory? That’s what we want to do elsewhere.” Meng u it a sa id H ickor y St reet improvements were likely to be addressed first be c au se t he DC TA t r a i n ser vice connecting Denton to dow ntow n Da l la s wa s expected to be completed next summer.

The UNT System Board of Regents voted Aug. 19 to approve a proposal to develop a new medical doctor degree program at the UNT Health Science Center at For t Worth. The board approved the proposa l, but t he Texas Legislature has yet to approve it to move for ward. The Legislature will not begin to vote until 2011. The center is authorized to provide an osteopathic degree, but it desires to expand its health science college further by adding the option of an MD degree. “Everybody recognizes the state of Texas is in dire need of more doctors,” Health Science Center president Scott Ransom said. “We’re short. We believe … creating this new MD school will help reduce the shortage of these much needed doctors in the community, not just in North Texas but across the state.” The program will be an independent fifth school in addition to the Texas College of Osteopathic Medicine, Graduate School of Biomedical Sciences, School of Public Health and School of Health Professions. Ransom said the school will be a benefit to Texas. The university has met all pre-approval requirements that were discussed in November at the regents’ 2009 meeting.

The requirements were to secure all necessar y sta rt-up funding, establish a business plan for the SCOTT new school, RANSOM e n s u r e commitments to secure a strong future for all existing programs and confirm relationships with area hospitals for student rotations and graduate training. “This has been an enormous community endeavor that had over 90 financial contributors,” Ransom said. “Fortyfour percent of the funds came from the health care world, and the other 56 percent came from other community groups, foundations and individuals.” Four hospitals gave $2.5 million each: Texas Health Resources, Baylor Health Care System, HCA North Texas/Plaza Medical Center and Tarrant County Hospital District/John Peter Smith Hospital. Other hospitals a lso cont r ibuted money. Cook Children’s Hospital gave $500,000. A number of individual doctors gave financial contributions. The North Texas Specialty Physicians group gave $500,000. “It’s very clear with these pledges that the health care community is ... 100 percent supportive of this endeavor,”

Ransom said. Other leading foundations in Fort Worth contributed, such as the Ann Carter Foundation and the Morris Foundation. “This really was very large community effort to bring this into reality,” he said. “We have significantly exceeded the amount of money we need to start all aspects of the medical school.” Because the university was successful in raising money and surpassing the program’s cost of $21.5 million, the only cost to Texas will be usual and appropriate money because of additional medical students beginning education, Ransom said. Dana Russell, the director of relations for the Health Science Center, said the new program would bring incredible benefits for the UNT Health Science System. “Anytime the UNT profile is raised, it raises our stature,” she said. Ransom agrees. “This MD-degree medical school will be a perfect compliment to support the creation of professionals that can work together in teams,” he said. “This is a huge thing for UNT Health Science Center.” If approved, the first class of 100 recruited students is not expected to be enrolled and active until 2013. The first graduate class is not expected until 2017. By then, 400 students would be enrolled on campus.

Bike lanes depend on success of development Continued from Page 1 Though funding has yet to be approved for the downtown plan, he said creation of the tax district will be one of the first matters addressed, probably in October. Although the tax district does not mean an increase in the tax rate, it will use any additional taxes the city collects from increases in property values following a base year to help pay for the plan. Virginia McNeill, the owner of McNeill’s Appliance, a familyrun business that has been on the Square since 1964, said that she was skeptical of the proposed revitaliztion plan. “The tax district scares me,” she said. “It doesn’t seem like an appropriate time to adding

expenditures for small businesses.” The plan is an effort to meet several goals identified in the city’s 20-year comprehensive plan, such as improved pedestrian traffic, parking, business development, aesthetics and a more integrated community. McNeill said that the city had been discussing improvements to parking and pedestrian traffic for years and had yet to do anything about it. She was also concerned about the plans to build bicycle lanes throughout downtown. “I’m worried about the bicycle lanes,” she said. “I feel like they will be a safety hazard.” Aaron Lee, who co-owns a maternity store and photography studio on the Square called

Addison June, which has been open less than a month, was more optimistic. “I like anything to improve,” he said. “As long as the taxes don’t go up too much, I think it’s a great idea.” He said he was a triathlete and considered the bike lanes a worthwhile investment. “I’m all for it,” he said. Menguita said much of the future of the downtown project will depend on the Hickory Street project.

Researchers work on making ‘free energy’ possible By Tim monzingo Senior Staff Writer

From a windowless lab in the Chemistry Building, a team of graduate and undergraduate students, headed by Justin Youngblood of the chemistry department, is looking to the sun. For years, people have relied on burning fossil fuels to power ever y thing from cars and personal computers to homes and businesses, but Youngblood and his students are working to change that by studying cheaper and more efficient ways to capture solar power. A lt houg h sola r energ y has long been heralded as a means to power the planet, the energy and resources needed to produce traditional solar panels haven’t made it any cheaper than current forms of power.

“[Today’s solar panels are] affordable, but the energy they produce is not yet cheaper than fossil fuel energy,” Youngblood said. “Our interest is in coming up with solar energy materials that would be much cheaper than this silicon or the other materials that are used in the more expensive solar cells.” The prototypes developed by Youngblood and other scientists studying the technology rely on organic materials that are available almost everywhere. Silicon, used in traditional panels, is expensive to process and manufacture, Youngblood said. T he te ch nolog y bei ng researched would allow solar panels to be inexpensively produced and the panels could be “printed like newspapers,” he said.

The low cost of the panels would make it possible to use the money and resources once devoted to buying power for other things. “Imagine if we had solar panels lining the walls of all of our buildings, and they powered the lights and the computers and the projectors,” said Cordell Cunningham, a chemistry senior working on the project. “It would be like free energy. Imagine how big the electricity bill at your house is during the summer keeping it at 75 degrees.” Cunningham said that the money once used to pay for power could be put toward better facilities, equipment and teachers, which would raise the university’s status.

The work being done by Youngblood has already attracted some students to the university, like Keith Haynes, a graduate student working on the research. “I was looking at schools and I found Dr. Youngblood’s group out of three or four schools I applied to and actually came here for him,” Haynes said. Although the work may enhance UNT’s reputation and attract more students and researchers, for Cunningham and

Haynes, working on the project is exciting because of what it allows them to do. “It definitely makes it more exciting because it feels like it’s legitimate,” Haynes said. “Once you put everything together –– all the research, all the aspects — then it becomes something amazing.” For Cunningham, knowing that the work is addressing reallife issues is rewarding. “That’s definitely part of my motivation and desire to do it, because I know it’s for a greater good for everyone,” he said. “For me, that’s the most noble type of work that you can do. We’re trying to push the boundaries of what we know and understand.”

Student entrepreneur learns craft through kiosk BY JOSH PHERIGO Assigning Editor

It’s a quarter to 3 on a Saturday morning in the Waffle House off Interstate 35 — rush hour. Plates of bacon, golden waffles and hot cups of coffee stream out of the kitchen and onto the tables of hungry patrons who’ve come for a fourth meal just after “Last Call” and before bed. Halfway through his shift, server Kandon Phillips knows it’s going to be a long day. Like many college students, he is working his way through school. Soon the sun will rise, and Phillips, a business student at North Central Texas College, will be off to the second of three jobs. The schedule is exhausting, but he wouldn’t have it any other way. At 21, Phillips is financing his own business. In April, he purchased Papa Dean’s Popcorn, a gourmet popcorn kiosk in the Golden Triangle Mall. Phillips said he has always wanted to become a successful business owner, and running Papa Dean’s will help

him gain vital experience. “You’re not going to actually learn your craft until you do it,” Phillips said. “The more time and effort I put into it, the more knowledge and skill I’ll have for the future.” Opening a clear bag of popcorn labeled “Chicago Blend” and dispensing it into small plastic cups, Phillips smiles as a couple walks by, insisting they try a free sample. They oblige and walk on. After attending UNT for one semester in 2007, Phillips said, he knew he wanted to study business management and become an entrepreneur. In mid-April, the opportunity struck. Local business owner Shana Azzami was looking to sell the lease. Phillips, a friend of Azzami’s daughter, expressed interest, and on April 26 he bought it for $2,500. Azzami said she knew the company would be in good hands. “I had no concerns when I saw how determined he was,” she said. “He is a very smart guy.”

In the four months since acquiring the business, Phillips said, he has paid off his initial investment, hired three part-time employees and begun to consider expansion opportunities. “I’m a capitalist through and through,” he said. Anthony Mendes is the director of UNT’s Murphy Center for Entrepreneurship in the College of Business. He said that although there are definite challenges, while attending college is a great time for people to venture into entrepreneurship. “I would definitely encourage it,” Mendes said. “Students generally have little debt, no families to provide for and plenty of free time. It’s also a fabulous thing for a résumé.” It’s also important to consider the downside, which Mendes said could be the loss of investment, and the potential loss of friendships if students do not handle business partnerships well. Increased unemployment has given people the courage to leave the traditional job market and

clinic. “But now it’s over 250 people.” The Department of State Health Services funds the center to provide assistance to people with bipolar disorder, schizophrenia, depression and other mental illnesses. The Denton clinic has some of the lowest Ad - North Texas Daily funding of any of the clinics in Texas, Gutierrez said. Mental health needs are now more present in younger people because of the stress caused when family members cannot find work, Gutierrez said. Parents are depressed and the

children see it, which makes them depressed, she said. “It’s a vicious cycle,” she said. Despite the waiting list, however, immediate help can be available. In 2008, the center introduced a crisis service that sends workers to northern and southern Denton County to help those in critical need. The Mobile Crisis Outreach Team provides assessments for people in psychiatric crisis, according to the center’s website. The service is available 24 hours a day, seven days a week. Anyone who feels as if they are

In 2009, more people started their own business than before. “What used to be considered the safe haven of working for a company is not so safe anymore,”

Mendes said. “Many people are now interested in taking their destiny into their own hands.” Phillips said he strongly encourages anyone thinking about opening a small business

a danger to themselves or others can call a crisis hotline to receive help quickly. Employees said that the program has better funding than the typical services. Those in crisis also have access to prescriptions and medical attention with Medicaid. Those without Medicaid have more difficulty, but no one is turned away because of inability to pay, said Gutierrez. “A lot of doctors in this area don’t take Medicaid,” Gutierrez said, so Denton MHMR may be some patients’ only way to get mental health medical care.

“It’s a big issue — the whole money thing,” said Elizabeth Swingle, the agency’s rights protection officer. “We have way too many people and not enough money.” Denton MHMR also has an Assertive Community Treatment program, which provides specialized services for people who have been hospitalized and may need additional one-on-one care. “I think it’s great because we give people with low income medica l ca re … outside resources,” said Whitney Sterling, a mental health case manager

at the clinic who is part of the program. Gutierrez said that people should not feel ashamed for thinking like they may need mental health care whether they have insurance. “They’re no different,” she said. “People have this preconceived notion that they’re violent or scary.” Denton County residents who feel they may need to talk to someone or find some help can call a 24-hour crisis hotline. The number is 1-800762-0157.

Summer job market leaves students unemployed, worried BY JESSICA PAUL

Senior Staff Writer For many college students, summer often means working a job. Not everyone was successful this summer in making this a reality. With the ongoing lack of jobs throughout the U.S., college-aged students seemed to have a difficult time the past few months finding work for the brief time they were off. Victoria Mengden, a business sophomore, applied for more than 30 jobs this summer in her hometown and was not hired by a single employer. “I applied anywhere possible that was around me, like restaurants,” Mengden said. “Me and my friend went job-searching together and a lot of places weren’t hiring.” Mengden said she applied at numerous locations including department stores, the local mall

and retail stores like Best Buy and Barnes & Noble. Although Mengden applied toward the end of May, she said it seemed employers had already found summer employees. “I think if you apply earlier you’ll get something because I’m pretty sure everyone was pretty much booked up when I applied,” she said. Mengden said she, like many college students, needed a job for summer because of financial issues for school. “That’s why I tried to get a job,” Mengden said. “After graduation, students want to be financially secure and get some work experience.” She believes the lack of summer job availability could be due to a lack of economic growth within the country, she said. “I just think people are trying to save their money for things that they really need because

compared to what it’s been lately.” Although students have been hired for unpaid internships, Davidson said the numbers have been about the same with hiring for paid and unpaid positions. Davidson said the reason could be from an employer’s perspective of noticing recovery in the economy. “It’s easier for them to bring on an intern or a couple of interns at a decent hourly rate than it PHOTO ILLUSTRATION BY GREG MCCLENDON/PHOTOGRAPHER would be to hire new full-time Victoria Mengden, a business sophomore increases her chances of getting a job employees where they might be by filling out as many applications as she can. also looking for benefits plus just a higher salary to begin with,” A helpful route for future Davidson said. of the economy, so that’s why Davidson said there has been people aren’t hiring,” Mengden employees Other students chose to a change with hiring recent gradsaid. “People are just trying to be resourceful and use what pursue internships as their uates compared to years before the recent recession. summer employment. they have.” Summer jobs and internships Corey Dav idson, a ssoA lt hough Mengden was unsuccessful in finding work ciate director of Internships & are important for students so that for the summer, she was recently Cooperative Education, said they can become more finanhired to work on campus in the hiring for internships “started cially secure before graduating to pick back up this summer and finding work, he said. fall.

“For internships in particular, obviously the money is nice for those paid positions, but regardless of that, when the economy is tight the job market is tight.” Because of this, Davidson said there is more of a need for students to be marketable when they graduate. Summer internships could turn into a full-time job after graduation, he said. “If you’ve got some experience in your major that you’ve got on your resume when you’re shopping that around for a full time job, you’re going to find it a lot easier,” Davidson said. Davidson encourages students to visit the Eagle Network website where the Internship & Cooperative Education office posts internships. “It’s definitely a slow process but I think if the economy starts back in the right direction then we’ll start to see some of the jobs pick up as well.”

Departments across campus submit program proposals weeks before First Flight takes off.

Local bike shops engage student community BY LEVI SHULTZ Intern

C ycl i ng ha s become a major mode of transportation in Denton, particularly for college students who can’t afford a tank of gas or don’t own a car. Over the past year, the UNT Parking and Transportation Services has sold 407 bicycle per m its to st udents who commute daily to campus. W it h more st udents pu rcha si ng bic ycles a nd pulling out their old rusted bikes from the garage, bicycle shops in Denton are coming up with ways to help out. Stepha ni Jones, a journalism sophomore, said she

is considering riding her bike this semester because she lives so close to campus. “[Biking] would be faster than walking or driving,” she said. First, Jones said, she has to get her bike fixed. “The overall goal behind our shop is to start a business in Denton that could really engage the community and be a part of the community,” said Aaron Fair, co-owner of Bullseye Bike Shop. Two other Denton bicycle shops, the Bicycle Path and the Denton Bicycle Center, share similar goals. Each shop prov ides for students in different ways.

Bullseye Bike Shop’s mission is to give back 10 percent of its profit to the community, help sponsor local events such as bike rides and raise support for Christian missionaries. It also prov ides support to the homeless, whose only transportation is a bicycle, by providing odd jobs around the shop in order to equip and enable them rather than just give them things, Fair said. The Bicycle Path supports local cycling clubs such as the UNT triathlon team and regularly host group bicycle rides in order to provide an opportunity for cyclists to have relationships with each other, said owner Gary Hack.

“The goal is to not just sell a person a bike; it’s to sell them an experience,” he said. Denton Bicycle Center, the oldest shop in Denton, which has been open since 1971, aims to help those students who can only afford old, used models, said manager Alan Smart. “[Cycling] is a lifestyle,” he said. Rebekkah Portlock, a Texas Academy of Math and Science student, said she hasn’t brought her bike to campus yet, but she plans to. “This year my classes… are all across campus,” she said. “I think I’m going to need [a bike.] It’s a lot faster than walking.”

UNT police officer helps charity through football BY A MBER BELL

Contributing Writer At 6 feet 6 inches tall, 31-yearold UNT police officer Gerald Shepherd can certainly be intimidating. He grins when he says that he “works out quite a bit.” The Mean Green alumnus uses his size and physical strength to give back to the community by playing a sport that he loves. From March through June, Shepherd plays safety for the Dallas Defenders football team, a group of 50 Dallas-Fort Worth area police officers and firefighters who play full-contact football to raise money for families of fallen public safety officials. The team is part of the National Public Safety Football League, which has 25 teams across the country. Each year, the teams play for a national championship and bragging rights. But there is no cash to be won.

The team members pay their ow n way and money from concessions and ticket sales at home games goes to the Guns and Hoses Foundation, which donates the proceeds to the families. “It means a lot to me,” said Shepherd, who still holds the UNT indoor triple jump record. “It’s a lot different from high school or college sports. You know your brother is working hard out there, too.” Team members also donate their time to help troubled youth. In May, the Defenders went to Gainesville State School, a maximum security juvenile detention center, to coordinate a football camp. “We showed t hem how to catch, throw, tackle. We showed them discipline in football and in life,” Shepherd said. In a May 9 KDAF-TV newscast about the football camp, inmates admitted that they

found new respect for the officers. Firefighters and police officers are known for their longstanding pranks and antics, but the Defenders don’t let those onto the field. Balch Springs emergency medical technician and firefighter Chase Crawford said the field is shared equally among firefighters and police officers. “We’re all wearing the same jersey, all the same colors, all for the same purpose,” said Crawford, who was a rookie along with Shepherd during the undefeated 2010 season. The team won the “Best in Texas” trophy, but lost the National Championship on June 26 to the Phoenix Arizona Thunder. Defenders president Marc Courville recruited Shepherd. Shepherd and many others do not get to rest during the games because the Defenders’ roster is not yet full.

But play ing such a demanding sport yields more t h a n g re at c ompet it ion, Shepherd said. “I t hin k it’s helped me mature as a police officer because you get dif ferent points of view from different agencies,” he said. “He stepped up into a starter role, right from the start,” said Courville. “He leads by example. If I could get 20-25 more of him with the same attitude and the same character he’s got, that would be beautiful.” The Defenders will begin their fall camp in October, and Shepherd says he is looking for wa rd to play ing aga in, particularly since he feels like he has found a unique place as a member of the organization. “I always grew up being an athlete,” he said.

English students run together to prepare for Dallas marathon BY BROOKE NOTTINGHAM Contributing Writer

A mile is 5,280 feet. For UNT students Aaron Case, Brit Naylor and Josh Peters, a mile is eight times around the Pohl Recreation Center track. The group is training for the MetroPCS Dallas White Rock Marathon, scheduled for Dec. 5 in Fair Park, which includes full and half marathons, a five-person relay, a corporate relay and a walkand-run fun run. The three students formed a running group that meets four days a week. “Right now I run three miles without stops twice a week, and four miles without stops twice a week,” Naylor, a creative writing senior, explained. “But I’ll increase it before too long. Working up to 13 miles is definitely an incremental process.” For Case and Peters, this is their first time training for an official half marathon. Naylor trained for the same marathon in 2008, but didn’t sign up in time. “I f i n ishe d my t r a i n i ng anyway,” Naylor said. “One day in December I ran the entire 13.1 miles on a treadmill. I proved that

I could do it, which was the only thing that mattered to me.” Naylor said he began habitually running in high school. His girlfriend’s father, who majored in physical education and went on to start a health-related company, sparked Naylor’s interest in exercise. “I drank soda and I ate whatever I wanted,” he recalled. “But eventually I started paying attention to how I really felt, and my ideas about health changed. Once you start running, you recognize the good that it does for you. You miss it when it’s gone.” Fitness coordinator Angela McGuire believes the sooner people star t exercising, the better. “It not only improves physical attributes but more importantly improves overall function of the human body,” she said. Case, an English language junior, ran cross country in high school, but quit after he graduated in 2008. He started running again when he met Naylor last spring. “He was like, ‘Do you like running?’ And it just started from there,” Case said. “I’m glad to be back running now.”

Case’s diet consists largely of potatoes from his workplace, Jason’s Deli. “I eat potatoes because I get a discount on them from work,” Case explained, piercing a wedge of microwaved potato slathered in Chik-Fil-A sauce and draped with globs of cheese. “But the starch is a good source of energy.” Case admitted that he is anxious about the run in December. “It’s hard just to do four miles now,” he said. “I don’t know how I’m going to do 13.” Peters, an English language senior, also star ted r un ning because of Naylor. “I had never been one to be in shape, so I started slowly,” he remembered. “I started with Brit and we made this group. It’s always easier to run with people.” Peters stopped running for several months. When Case and Naylor met, Peters re-joined the group, although he said he doesn’t run as far as the other two. Although they are dedicated to their training, the group has not yet officially entered the half marathon. “It’s $75 to go, which is a lot,”

Senior Staff Writer While the heat was sweltering on Monday, the last day of two-a-days practice, defensive coordinator Gary DeLoach had no shortage of enthusiasm as he made sure to correct the defense in its attempt to take the ball away from the offense as much as it could. After a season in which UNT finished dead last in the Sun Belt Conference in turnovers and 117th in the NCAA Football Bowl Subdivision, the Mean Green will try to snatch the ball from opposing offenses in 2010. “We’re being maniacs going to the ba ll,” junior defensive end Brandon Akpunku said. “We are being complete maniacs. If the whistle hasn’t been blown yet, we’re ripping at the ball, we’re trying to get picks.” I n 20 09, t he t u r nover margin was -1.17, one of several stats that could be attributed to a season in which the Mean Green managed to scrap together two wins. UNT coughed the ball up 29 times, while only taking it away a mere 15 times. Ju n ior defen sive back DaWaylon Cook did his best to please DeLoach, who is two years deep in his second stint at UNT, with three interceptions at Monday morning’s practice. Cook and the rest of the defense are doing what they can this offseason to curb the abysmal margin. “We didn’t play the ball well,” Cook said. “We didn’t work on this type of stuff. Now we’re working, and we’re going to keep working and continue to get better at it.” This season, t he Mea n

Green is trying to completely f lip t he statistic w it h t he defense looking to force at least two turnovers a game –– something that only occurred on five different occasions. There were four instances when the Mean Green was unable to produce a turnover, and all four times it went on to lose the game. A classic example where ta keaways had a decided outcome on the game was in the Mean Green’s final home ga me last season aga i nst Army, in which it lost by four. UNT coughed the ball up five times — three times in the air and twice on the ground. Conversely, UNT was unable to force any turnovers out of the Black Knights. This offseason, however, the Mean Green has been hard at work polishing that aspect of the game. “It’s gotten to be a deal where, when the turnovers appear, they’re not surprising us,” head coach Todd Dodge said. “Were going after them, and it’s something that we absolutely have to do.” The Mean Green will look to players like Cook, junior defensive back Royce Hill and senior linebacker Craig Robertson to anchor a defense that allowed 412.33 yards per game, ranking 97th in the nation. Hill led the team with four takeaways, with Robertson also contributing one interception and two fumble recoveries. The Mean Green will try to sta r t f u lf i l ling its new resolution on Sept. 4 when it travels to South Carolina to face Clemson, a team that had the fourth best turnover margin in the Atlantic Coast Conference.

Long-time equipment Future looks bright for manager still enjoys duties Mean Green soccer BY CANDICE LINDSEY

BY SEAN GORMAN

Receiving 75 boxes of football equipment is not out of the ordinary for Mike Gallup. Unloading a FedEx truck while dressed in his daily work attire of tennis shoes, shorts and a T-shirt, Gallup says it is “part of the job.” A typical workday for Gallup, who is entering his 17th season as equipment manager, begins at 8 a.m. and ends at 6:30 p.m. However, during football season, workdays can last until 10 p.m. Gallup will not get a day off of work until December, and that includes weekends. “A lot of people think you just go out there and kick off at 6:30 p.m. There’s a lot more to it than that. Not many people know what we do,” he said. Gallup is in charge of equipment for all sports. Ordering equipment, doing inventory, taking care of sweaty laundry, numbering each T-shirt, sock and polo, getting at hletic clothing embroidered with the UNT logo, managing headsets during games and keeping the locker room in order are all parts of his job. With the help of his fulltime assistant, Keith Graham, a nd n i ne ot her a ssistant equipment managers, t he ma ny jobs get done. Gallup and his crew are on the field before and after practice and games, getting e ver yone read y to play.

As the fall semester begins and the UNT women’s soccer team is looking strong as ever in its first two games, Mean Green fans abroad have plenty of reason to get excited about the upcoming season. While the expectations are high and UNT should contend for a Sun Belt title in 2011, it’s important to take notice of the big picture and realize UNT’s chances to succeed will only increase in the coming years. “Part of the reason we feel so confident as a team right now is how easily the younger players are fitting in,” head coach John Hedlund said. “I feel really good about giving our freshmen and sophomores plenty of playing time and letting them play in key situations.” With only two seniors, goalkeeper Mandy Hall and forward Dani Watson, UNT will be relying heavily on its 10 sophomores, seven juniors and six freshmen. This environment will only bode well for these younger players, as they become more familiar with

He’s very cordial, easy to talk to and is always looking out for the benefit of others,” he said. Gallup went to school at UT-El Paso where he earned a full scholarship as a student-assistant equipment manager. He then worked as equipment manager at Sam Houston State for three years. He came to UNT in 1994 and has held the equipment manager position ever since. After 16 seasons, Gallup still enjoys his job. His favorite parts of the job are doing inventory and transporting equipment to games. Grinning, he admitted he might be getting a little too old to be doing the latter. Getting equipment to the coaches and players is not his only concern. The relat ionsh ips he bu i lds w it h bot h a re a lso impor ta nt. “Whatever they need, we take care of them,” he said.

Redshirt sophomore Tevinn Cantly is grateful for Gallup’s help during the football season. “They keep us safe. Whether it be a replacement at practice or a quick in-game repair, they do a great job in keeping us well protected,” Cantly said. Once the new stadium is built, Gallup said the workload will be easier and the overall efficiency will be better. Having the new stadium will not require any transport for home games. Until then, every game is as if it is an away game. Trucks still have to be packed with all equipment and transported from Mean Green Village to Fouts Field. Gallup is looking forward to the changes that will come with the new stadium and how they will affect the job he loves. “I have one of the best jobs anyone could have. I get to come to work in shorts,” he said.

Freshman Kelsey Hodges and sophomore Michelle Young can score at any time, sophomore midfielder Ellen Scarfone is the best passer on the team and nobody looked more aggressive than sophomore forward Alicia Reyes last weekend. They’re not lowerclassmen anymore, but the junior class isn’t exactly terrible either. Defender Julie Lackey was the Sun Belt Conference Player of the Week, defender Kara Brooks is getting more minutes than anyone and forward Kelsey Perlman is always a threat on offense. Luckily, it’s not only the personnel that gives me hope

for this time in the coming years. Hedlund has presided over 15 st ra ig ht w i n n i ng seasons and surpassed 200 career wins last year. Any time a team has the correct strategy and personnel, it’s going to have a good shot at success. Hedlund knows exactly how to manage these young players, and as every year passes, their skills will grow. We shouldn’t look too far ahead, but it’s hard to ignore the idea of UNT recruiting some great prospects over the next couple of years. Fifteen straight w inning seasons shows strong stability, and over the years the Mean Green brand has gained more and more legitimacy. “I knew I would like coming here after talking to Coach Hedlund and seeing the kind of success we have had at home,” Hodges said. “I feel extremely comfortable being here already and am excited about the next four years.” Hodges isn’t the only one feeling good about this team and its chances in the next few years. With an inf lux of talented players, a qualified coach and more flexibility in recruiting, it’s hard not to.

Mean Green full of optimism about season By Sean Gorman Senior Staff Writer

In recent years a handful of things have come to be expected from UNT sports: close and dramatic football games, impressive play from men’s basketball and a soccer team capable of competing for a Sun Belt title. This year looks to be no different, as an influx of new talent and a deep roster has head coach John Hedlund and his players with high hopes for the upcoming season. “Our expectations are always high every year,” Hedlund said. “We don’t look at polls or anything like that. We see it as a disappointment if we don’t win a title at the end of the year.” With younger players stepping into their roles and already playing at a high level, the depth of the team has improved from last year and will be one of UNT’s strengths. “There has been a lot more bonding off the field with these players,” sophomore forward Michelle Young said. “Along with having more talent on the team,

the chemistry is really strong and that helps a lot on the field.” One reason for UNT getting deeper is the strong play of freshman midfielder Kelsey Hodges, who scored three goals in her first collegiate game against Texas Southern. “It was very fun for me being able to contribute right away like that,” Hodges said. “I definitely didn’t expect to have that kind of success that soon but I really enjoyed it.” With sophomore midfielder Ellen Scarfone, junior defender Julie Lackey, junior forward Kelsey Perlman, Young and Hodges all showing the ability to score often, the Mean Green has taken a more aggressive approach on offense. “This year, we’ll be running a 5-3-2 offense so we can use the talent we have at midfielder,” Hedlund said. “If someone is having an off night, there are other people on this team that can step up and score for us.” UNT demonstrated this style in its first two games with an 8-0 win over Texas Southern and a 2-1 victory over Missouri State.

“One thing we are going to work on after those games is starting strong. We had some trouble doing that in both games,” Lackey said. Lackey was rewarded with the Sun Belt Conference Player of the Week award after scoring three goals and notching an assist last weekend. “I’m really excited to be recognized for that,” Lackey said. “I’m just trying to help contribute as much as I can.” UNT did not go unscathed after its first two games as it lost sophomore defender Danielle Guilliod for the season with a torn ACL and MCL. “I hate losing a player like D.J. because that really hurts the defense,” Hedlund said. “Hopefully we can plug someone else in and stay strong at that position.” The Mean Green returns to action this weekend at the Hotel Encanto Aggie Classic in Las Cruces, N.M., where it plays Prairie View A&M at 5 p.m. Friday and Jacksonville State at 11 a.m. Sunday.

Legendary director Writing a column for the North Texas Daily fought for program If you have an opinion about any topic on campus, or one that you are passionate about, please send your thoughts to the North Texas Daily Views section.

Editorial When Leon Breeden took over as chairman of the jazz studies department in 1959, few people outside the North Texas region had ever heard of the music program at North Texas State College. Even fewer paid attention to the jazz department, which at the time, was one of only a handful of university-level programs for the genre in the nation. Breeden changed that, and in the process developed an international reputation as an innovative educator, musician and director, over the course of a teaching career in the College of Music that spanned more than 22 years. He died Aug. 11 in a Dallas hospital at the age of 88. In the wake of his passing, the Editorial Board remembers Breeden for his dedication to the students he taught, the music he created and the university he helped define. Best known for his role as the director of the One O’Clock Lab Band, Breeden’s arrangement, composition and influence helped make the band internationally famous. Under his direction, the band traveled extensively, performing and competing at festivals and competitions across the world. The band performed at the White House in 1967 for President and Mrs. Lyndon B. Johnson. The band was also nominated for two Grammy Awards under his leadership in 1976 and 1978. When he retired in 1981, more than 400 former students returned to honor their for mer mentor. Born in Guthrie, Okla., and raised in Wichita Falls, LEON Breeden began playing the clarinet BREEDEN at a young age. In an interview with the Dallas Morning News in 2004, Breeden said he would practice in his father’s barn, startling the chickens with each missed note. While working in his parents’ convenience store, an unsuspecting Breeden once served a Coke to Bonnie Parker and Clyde Barrow. He continued playing clarinet, honing his skills as a musician at TCU where he earned his bachelor’s and master’s before starting his teaching career. Breeden served in the Army during World War II as a member of the 69th Infantry Band before returning to the faculty at TCU upon receiving his discharge. After a stint as director of bands at Grand Prairie High School in the early 1950s he came to direct jazz studies at North Texas. It was not a warm reception. In a speech he once gave, Breeden said, in his first year, he had to fight for recognition and respect for the jazz program against “extremely ominous signs.” He recalled that an angry caller once told him he was going to hell for teaching the music. “I wrote my first resignation letter the second week I was at North Texas,” Breeden once said before a crowd of hundreds. “I decided after long and careful study and discussions with my family to stay and fight for what I believed in.” The Board thanks Dr. Breeden for the legacy he leaves behind and the tenacity he brought to the craft he mastered. His legendary success as an educator will be forever tied to the prominence of the program he built and the lives he shaped.
