Raging wildfires near Possum Kingdom Lake have torched nearly 130,000 acres, destroyed 167 homes and forced thousands of residents to evacuate as area rains helped contain what has become one of the largest Texas wildfires on record. The cause of the fire, which began April 13 west of Fort Worth, is still under investigation, but windy, dry conditions caused the fires to spread quickly, consuming 291 buildings as of Monday, according to the Brazos River Authority. Many residents returned to their homes Monday as a mandatory evacuation was lifted after close to 3 inches of rain helped to dampen the dry conditions fueling the fires. “The fires have been really bad,” said Jay Reinke, a Denton resident whose family owns a home on Possum Kingdom. “But luckily we’re still standing.” Reinke said his family has been lucky because the fires haven’t damaged their home, but he said he has worried about the state of the lake and other residents. Amy Sabbatini, a Possum Kingdom resident who was displaced to an area hotel by the fires, is working with Pondera Properties at Possum Kingdom on a blog that keeps residents updated on the fires, evacuations and current weather conditions. “We’re a group of locals who want to serve the residents as best as we can,” Sabbatini said. “The weather has cooled off and the humidity seems to be helping. We’re just sitting and getting information from various sources, then getting it to residents as soon as we can.” The blog set up by Pondera Properties allows residents to post questions, photos and information about the fire for others to respond.

UNT to relocate bees to local farm BY M ATTHEW CARDENAS Staff Writer

Thousands of honeybees will live to buzz another day — fa r away f rom t he UNT campus. Be eh ives i n t he Rad io, Te l e v i s i o n , F i l m a n d Performing Arts Building are scheduled to be relocated at the beginning of the summer, said Lynda Hutson of UNT’s facilities a nd constr uction department. Hutson sent out the paperwork Monday to spend over $ 5,0 0 0 to open t he RT FP Building’s wall and remove the honey and combs. “We are having a meeting next week to inform everyone about what we are going to do,” Hutson said. The date of the meeting has not been decided, but Hutson called it t he B e e Rou nd Ta ble Meeting. The relocat ion w i l l ta ke place after graduation and before the Summer I classes begin. “We were looking for the day when the least amount of people were on campus,” Hutson said. She said the police will have the area blocked off to protect the people on campus. Originally, UNT officials scheduled the removal of the

hives for March 14, but they decided to wait to find out about other options to extract the bees. “[The decision] was expedient,” said Charles Jackson a facilities and construction administrator. “We were not t h i n k i ng t he whole t h i ng through.” Jackson said both students a nd f ac u lt y c a me to t he administration to offer information and experts to refer to before making the decision. The two hives are located in a 3-inch void in the wall on the back of the building and are being removed because one has become aggressive. “One colony has been there for 18 years,” Hutson said. “The aggressive ones were there for only 2 years.” Hutson sa id t here is no way to know how many bees are in the wall, but she estimated between 10,000 and 2 million. “We won’t know until we go into the wall,” she said.

weekend of prayer for rain. Governor Perry asked Texas residents of all faiths and religions to pray for the land, for an end to the drought conditions faced by the entire state and for the rebuilding of the communities that have been destroyed in the wake of the fires. Prayers were answered, as rain and even some severe weather came through the area on Saturday and Sunday nights. Cook said the team expects to have the fire contained by Saturday, and that as of Monday, 69 percent of the fire was already contained. Since the first of the year, Texas wildfires have killed two firefighters, burned 1.8 million acres of land and consumed more than 900 structures, according to the Texas Forest Service.

Burggren named UNT Provost BY L AURA ZAMORA Assigning Editor

UNT President V. Lane Rawlins announced Warren Burggren as the university’s permanent provost and vice president for academic affairs on Monday. Burggren, who was dean of the College of Arts and Sciences for 12 years, was named provost last June after the departure of Wendy Wilkins. His appointment by Rawlins, who was

interim president at the time, was to continue until a longterm president was appointed. Rawlins was named president in De c ember. “His title was never ‘acting’ or ‘interim’ provost, but many of you have expressed your hopes that he would be named to this position on a permanent basis,” Rawlins said in an email to faculty Monday afternoon. Before coming to UNT,

Burggren was the biological sciences department chair at the University of Nevada-Las Vegas. He also served as interim dean of the College of Science and Mathematics at UNLV. Burggren was also acting chair of the zoology department at the University of Massachusetts in 1991.

Slut Walk protests sex assault ‘victim blaming’ BY NICOLE BALDERAS Staff Writer

More than 60 supporters gathered at the JFK Memorial Plaza Saturday baring more than just their skin for the Dallas Slut Walk. The group consisted of men and women, young and old, with the common purpose of ending sexual violence and what is known as victim blaming toward those who have been sexually abused. “I’m personally a survivor of sexual assault and there was some victim blaming,” said Elizabeth Webb, the organizer of the walk. “I know that victim blaming is very large.” Webb said she was inspired to bring the event to Dallas after learning about the women who created the original Toronto Slut Walk in early-April. Toronto residents Sonya Barnett and Heather Jarvis created the walk to protest highly publicized comments made by a representative from the Toronto Police Department while speaking at a university in January. Addressing a group of students at Osgoode Hall Law School,

Jordan Hughes, the president of UNT’s Feminist Majority Leadership Alliance, was one of the women who spoke. “While the term ‘slut’ is engaging and controversial, it’s a pejorative term used to describe women who have sex regardless of how many partners they’ve had or whether they’ve even had sex or not,” Hughes said.

Student designers earn thousands at competitions BY K AYLAH BACA & A NN SMAJSTRLA Interns

Com mu n icat ion desig n students are bringing home thousands of dollars in scholarship money after winning several awards at three recent art competitions. St udent s competed i n the Dallas Society of Visual Communications Nationa l

Student Show, the Fort Worth and Dallas Addys, and the Creative Summit Awards. “Winning was a real surprise,” said Emily Schwarting, a communication design senior. “There was good competition.” Schwarting won the Sponsored Award for Best Use of Copy at the seventh Dallas Society of Visual Communications National Student Show, something she

said she was not expecting because copy writing was only one part of her whole submission. Schwarting’s winning project consisted of a brochure she made for a hypothetical vintage clothing company. She came up with a back story for the clothing company and an entire video look-book for the campaign for her mock client.

Andrew Bui, a communication design senior, won a gold medal for Best Art Direction with his magazine campaign for Sandy Lakes, a small amusement park in Dallas. He said it took him months to come up with an idea and to put it into action. He made the advertisements using the programs Illustrator and Photoshop, but he also used some of his hand-drawn sketches. His campaign is now on its way to nationals.

Sigma Chi donate to national charities B y C orrisa J aCkson

Staff Writer Members of the Sigma Chi fraternity showed they aren’t afraid to get a pie in the face for a good cause. Last week marked the 19th annua l Derby Days event where the fraternity raises money for its national charities, the Huntsman Cancer Institute and the Children’s Miracle Network. Daniel Ryan, an accounting senior and the president of Sigma Chi, said the event consisted of a money drive, compet it ive ga mes held with the eight sororities of t he Pa n-Hel lenic counci l and “Pie Sigma Chi” on the campus green. L a st ye a r, Sig ma C h i members raised about $7,000 for their charities and hope to match that this year.

In addition to the events on campus, the group held a fundraiser at Buffalo Wild Wings. E v a n K r a s n o w, a n econom ics sen ior a nd member of the fratnery, said Derby Days was exciting and a great way to interact with sorority members. The volleyball tournament and the inf latable obstacle course were highlights of Derby Days, he said. Sarah Gunn, an English junior and member of the Kappa Delta sorority, said Derby Days allowed her to both hang out with her sisters and raise money for a great cause. “Ev er y one w a s r e a l l y pumped up on the last day,” she said. “Everyone felt really competitive.” Ryan said giving back is one of Sigma Chi’s priorities, and that the members enjoy giving to their national charities. “We like to mix the social with the hard working,” Ryan said. “We like to put the ‘fun’ in fundraising.”

Thunderstorms roll through region, rattle North Texans By Isaac WrIght Senior Staff Writer

After two days of severe weather, North Texans can expect to see more heavy rain, high winds, and the possibility of hail and tornados as storms continue to sweep through the area today. The Denton Fire Department activated the city’s outdoor warning sirens at 3 p.m. Monday as storms cells approached from the Southwest, producing severe rain and strong wind gusts. UNT faculty and staff instructed students to move to ground floors of campus buildings, taking shelter away from windows, for about 20 minutes as the storm passed through. No EagleAlert warning was issued during the storm because the National Weather Service never declared a tornado warning for Denton County, said UNT spokesman Buddy Price, although the sirens warned of dangerous weather. “The sirens basically mean take cover,� Price said. The severe weather is the result of a dry line system that has been centered on the Interstate-35 corridor since Sunday afternoon, said National Weather Service Meteorologist Daniel Huckaby. The storms dumped about 1.5 inches of rain on Denton County, and wind gusts hit above 50 mph Sunday evening. Tornados touched down in five counties, and tornado damage has been reported in Johnson, Hill and Navarro counties. He said more storms are in the forecast. “We’re looking at one more day of potentially dangerous weather, mainly east of the 35 corridor,� Huckaby said. “It will be similar today but more to the east of Dallas-Fort Worth.� Denton’s outdoor warning sirens are used to warn residents of emergencies, such as severe weather. The sirens also sounded Sunday night around 7:30 p.m.

Denton and its surrounding area experienced heavy thunder and rain Sunday night. Alan Zhao, a Texas Academy of Math and Science students, said he was at Discovery Park when the sirens went off. He said faculty went into his classroom and moved all students down to the basement of the building for a short period of time. “There was lots of lightning and severe weather,� Zhao said. “I didn’t see any tornados myself.� Clear skies should return and remain in Denton for the rest of the week after the storms move out tonight. Temperatures are expected to top out in the 70s and 80s.

Following the sirens on Sunday and Monday, UNT resident assistants manually sounded tornado alarms in campus dorms. Morgan Reed, an RA and elementary education junior, was in Bruce Hall when the sirens were heard on Monday. “We had to round up everybody [in the hall] into one spot,� Reed said. “That’s all I was really thinking about — getting everybody there.� Some of the most severe weather in Denton was reported around Discovery Park, including cloud rotation, according to the Denton Police Department Twitter feed.

UNT splits doubleheader Pipes’ Gripes: Close

calls define seasons

Martinez sets school record

BY BOBBY LEWIS

BY DONNIE PIPES

Senior Staff Writer It took a t wo-r u n home run in the top of the seventh inning, but t he UNT sof tball team managed a split in a doubleheader w ith South Alabama Friday, a day after the Mean Green fell to USA 5-0 in Mobile, Ala. The home run came off the bat of senior first baseman Mallor y Cantler, who broke a 3-3 tie to give UNT (20-28, 6-15) a 5-3 victory. Cantler was set up by senior catcher Courtney Bradshaw, who reached f irst base on a USA error. Bradshaw has come through late in games all season, ow ning a teamleading, three game-winning hits. “She’s just a kid that I know is going to put the ball in play late in the game,” said head coach T.J. Hubbard. “The last few games have been really close, so I’ve actually been holding her out of the lineup to put her in late whenever I want to.” Redshirt freshman Ashley Kirk led UNT with a complete game in the first contest and reached 143 strikeouts on the season, two short of the UNT single-season record.

Staff Writer

As the old cliché goes, “Close only counts in horseshoes and hand grenades.” That’s the way it was for Mean Green teams this year. Reflecting on this year in UNT athletics, I can’t help but wonder about the “what ifs” and the “should have beens.” If you don’t factor i n women’s basketball, which seemed to struggle from beginning to end, this year was a compelling one for our teams. The poor record from our women’s basketball team had a lot to do with 80 percent of the team playing the same position — the team had 12 guards on a 15-player roster. Our football team seemed

Freshman catcher Sarah McGann stretches to catch a pitch during a batting practice last week. (32-13, 11-8) clinched t he series with a 4-2 win behind the strength of six shutout innings by freshman pitcher

Hannah Campbell. UNT scored two runs in the seventh inning to cut a 4-0 def icit in ha lf, but couldn’t f inish t he comeback.

During the seventh inning r a l ly, sen ior lef t f ielder Ma r i za Ma r t i nez set t he school record for most runs scored by crossing the plate for t he 123rd time in her career. Sophomore pitcher Britta ny Simmons picked up t he loss, despite on ly allowing one hit through five innings. USA scored all of its runs in the sixth inning. “She threw great and the on ly t hing t hat kept t hat inning going is they got a litt le g round ba l l up t he middle that was misplayed a little bit,” Hubbard said. “That kind of prolonged the inning, but she threw a lot better than [on Thursday.]”

Women’s golf team selected BY SEAN GORMAN Sports Editor

T he UN T women’s gol f team’s record-breaking season was extended Monday, as the Mean Green was selected to play in a NCAA Women’s Golf Regional Tournament for the first time in school history. “This is a wonderful achievement for a very talented team,” said head coach Jeff Mitchell. “They have put 100 percent effort into this and are reaping the rewards.” Faci ng 23 ot her tea ms, UNT will compete as the No.

Since its i mpressive start, men’s golf has been mediocre, but it’s more or less because t he e nt i r e DONNY PIPES te a m c a n’t seem to perform up to par, pun intended, in the same round. Tennis was consistently great all season, but finished in fourth place at the conference tournament — another disappointing end to a season with promise for UNT. I’m a n x iou sl y w a it i ng to see where we’ll land in the sports still competing. Just close doesn’t cut it, and I just wish I had more hands so I could cross more fingers.

A nd w ho c a n f or ge t m e n’s basketball? We a l l k now how t h at ended, so let’s not relive the night UALR ripped my heart out and stomped on it. So where do we go now? We’re on the brink of some rough seasons for a few UNT teams, but there is hope, too. The softball team started strong, but hit a wall about a month ago. The team can still redeem itself with a strong showing in the conference tournament.

17 seed at the NCA A Central Regional Tournament from May 5 to May 7 at the Warren Golf Course in South Bend, Ind. The tournament’s top eight teams and two individuals w ill move on to the NCA A Na t ion a l C h a m pion s h ip, which is May 18 to May 21 in College Station, Texas. T he selec t ion comes a week after the Mean Green finished fourth at the Sun Belt Conference Tournament Wednesday. The 2010-2011 season was

full of accolades for U N T, a s it had a schoolrecord four players earn a l l - c o n f e rence honors JEFF a nd won a MITCHELL school-record four tournaments. Guiding his team to a topfive finish in all 10 tournaments this season, Mitchell wa s na med t he Su n Belt Con ference Coach of t he Year.

The UNT tennis tea m’s season came to a close this weekend when it was eliminated in the semifinal round of the Sun Belt Conference Tournament by rival Florida International in Mobile, Ala. After defeating Arkansas State 4-0 in the quarterfinals Thursday, the Mean Green fell 4-3 to the Golden Panthers, the team it defeated in the Sun Belt final last season. “These kids put themselves in a position to do the best they can and they did,” said head coach Sujay Lama. “They just came short by a few points.” FIU won the conference title over University of Louisiana-

Lafayette 4-0 Sunday, earning an automatic berth to the NCAA Tournament. “It made this two years in a row now where our match [against FIU] determined the champion and came down to the wire each time,” Lama said. “It was their turn this time.” With the teams tied 3-3, FIU’s Rita Maisak defeated senior Madura Ranganathan in three sets to secure the Golden Panthers’ win. “I’m really proud at the fact that the kids just kept battling through the entire season,” Lama said. “I really felt like we didn’t have enough time. W hen you look back at the season, you definitely see an

uphill battle for this team.” Ju n ior I r i na Pa r a sch iv led the way for UNT (10-12), w in n ing bot h her sing les matches in the tournament and teaming with sophomore Barbora Vykydalova to win the doubles point that clinched the Arkansas State match. “It would have been huge if we won the doubles point [against FIU]. It would have given us only three matches to win,” Paraschiv said. “They were actually better than us. At least this time.” The match was the final competition in the careers of Ranganathan and senior Amy Joubert. UNT will have five of its players return for next season.

UNT should examine weather response Editorial The weather scare Monday showed that UNT needs to do some work on its natural disaster preparation.

By refining the communication methods, response protocols and training practices, the university can better help its students, faculty and staff react quickly and correctly to danger in more serious situations. The Editorial Board thinks making those changes could prevent injuries and even death. Increase communication From the experience of members of the Board, the UNT faculty and staff did well letting people who were inside know where they needed to go to be safe. Once there, however, communication issues began. No official information was given between being told to get to a safe area and being told to leave. Extreme storms can breed chaos. Sharing information about the progression of the weather and whether people are in real danger can help alleviate unnecessary panic and anxiety. Students are usually only made aware of what to do in case of an emergency after one occurs. Although many of the students come from Texas and from Tornado Alley, some come from other areas and wouldn’t know what to do in case of a twister. The university might consider sending out at least a general outline for weather responses. Individual instructors could also provide details to their classes via Blackboard or email. It could also issue Weather Alerts to let students and employees know about serious weather conditions without watering down the Eagle Alert system. Improve protocol and training Several university staff members did not know when it was safe to leave the weather-protected areas Monday. In one editor’s experience, everyone started to file out of the weather-safe room, ready to return to their regular activities when someone came up and told everyone it wasn’t safe yet. Instead of being directed inside or going back in voluntarily, the people just stayed in the hallway. The protocol should be carefully delineated and provide enough detail to allow UNT employees to answer questions confidently. If all staff members were trained in the process of responding to an emergency from start to finish, that potentially harmful situation would not happen. Staff and faculty members should be aware of what they need to do to help students and others remain safe. The Board sees the lack of communication as a letdown, especially considering the incredible amount of information and preparation UNT showed during the Snowpocalypse this year. The university needs to improve its system before a real disaster strikes.

Student: Pill is a valid alternative Abortion is defined as the withdrawal of the fetus in the woman’s body. Abortion has been at the center of controversies, especially in Western countries such as t he United States. Some people view abortion as the killing of potential human beings while others believe it is the right for a woman to choose whether to abort. Although I think that abortion is a complex issue, I am against it unless the health of the mother is seriously threatened. However, it is necessary to differentiate abortion from certain birth control methods. Taking an emergency contraception pill is not simila r to aborting babies because t he concept ion process is not completed at that point. More importantly, I think that t he emergency cont raception pill is a solution to avoid unwanted pregnancies, especially for teenage girls. It is important to realize that the emergency contraception pill is an option to solve the problem of teenage preg na nc y i n t he Un ited States. In fact, some data demonstrates that teenage pregnancy increased in 2010. The United

“I also think that the emergency contraception pill is similar to a birth control pill that a lot of women take on a regular basis, but it contains a higher dosage.” States still has the highest rate of teenage pregnancy in the developed world. Moreover, teenage pregnancy causes problems for the babies. The children might not be raised properly or receive a l l t he ca re t hey need to succeed in life. Then, teenage mothers are exposed to dropping out of high school. Beside that, American citizens have to pay taxes so these unexpected babies would be able to receive the minimum of care possible. The emergency contraception pill should be considered as a solution for teenage mothers and for the American taxpayers. It is also necessary to realize the emergency contraception pill is not similar to an “abortion pill” like many people think. When the abortion pill is absorbed, it causes women to have uterine contractions

a nd misca rr y w it hin four hours. At this point, the fetus is removed just like a regular abortion. However, the emergency contraception pill does not allow the conception to take place. The emergency contraception pill is taken within three days of having unprotected sex, before the egg has been fertilized. This is undeniable evidence thatit does not interfer with the reproduction process. I also think that the emergency contraception pill is similar to a birth control pill that a lot of women take on a regular basis, but it contains a higher dosage of hormones than regular birth control pills. I n add it ion, t he emergency contraception pill is dif ferent from what many people believe. It is assumed

the emergency contraception pill would prevent pregnancy by altering the uterine lining. This would prevent the insertion of the fertilize egg. However, recent studies have proven that interference occurs only to block the ovulation process. This might be very important to know for people whose religious beliefs condemned i nter fer enc e w it h pr e gnancy after fertilization has occurred. T he pi l l is ef fect ive i n preventing teenage pregnancy and needs to be advertised more, so more people can use it. Although the other solution would be abstinence, it is not a realistic one, considering the impact sex has on American teenagers. These days, it becomes more and more difficult for teenagers to abstain from sexual activities. Therefore, the emergency contraception is the most efficient way to reduce teenage preg na nc y i n t he Un ited States. Ulrich Nonyu Moutassie i s a p o s t- b a c c a l a u re a t e student.

Royal wedding fever is unneeded There’s something exciting about weddings. They appeal to a special part of all of us. Between the fancy dresses, fantastic cakes, f lowers and decorations, or the whole true love thing, it’s hard not to get swept up in the excitement. That’s especially obvious today with all of the hoopla surrounding the royal wedding. The problem is, it doesn’t really matter. That is, if you don’t know either party, and you’re not directly involved in the planning or product ion of t he wedding, it gets old quick. I ca n’t even check CNN without being blasted with information I couldn’t care less about. This is a ver y A merica n thing to say, but it’s not even

our countr y. We separated from them in that little argument ca lled t he A merica n Revolution, and in case you missed it, we have our own le ader s w ho a re a l re ad y ma rried to women just as striking as Princess Kate. Hackers and spammers are jumping on the opportunity and creating Royal Wedding malware. It ’s r id ic u lou s , r e a l l y. People are so ready to rubberneck into the lives of celebrities on the other side of the world that they’ll toss securit y to t he w ind and open themselves up to viruses. More than just exposing themselves to viruses, people everywhere are wasting their time. I just don’t see the draw. Google predictive searches

w ith the prompt “royal w” shows a list entirely of royal wedding searches, and the nu mber of sites poppi ng up when the quer y is Kate Middleton or Prince William is through the roof. I see the irony — in proving my point, I’ve spent the last hour searching out information so I can tell you how dumb it is. But really, it’s a train w reck, and now t hat I’ve started, it’s hard to look away. I’ve found plastic replicas of t he engagement ring in a box bea r ing t he tag line “who needs a prince? ” and the radio in my car screams at me that the bride will wear her hair down. BBC ca l led it t he most public wedding of all time, and I want to take this chance

to tell everyone to calm down a nd stop treating it like a spectator sport. Two people a re in love, they’re promising their lives to one anot her, and it has absolutely nothing to do with you or me.
