“Well, one thing they can’t take is the memories. I’ve been blessed with good people.”

—Gene Hartman Owner of the Campus Barbershop

Saturday night as the Campus Barber Shop said goodbye to the street that’s been its home for half a century. More t ha n 100 people, including family, friends and longtime customers, poured into the time-honored establishment Saturday night to celebrate its history and pay tribute to owner Gene Hartman. “He is one of the best flattop cutters I have ever seen. And that is a dying art,” said Charley Higgins, 65, who has been a customer of Gene’s since 1966.

The now vacant lots that surround the shop played host to dancers, diners and a few who could recall the area’s heyday, while a live band echoed Johnny Cash and kids toasted marshmallows over the fire. “I have been here 16 years and I’ve seen a lot of change,” said

Jeremy Carroll, 36, a barber at the shop. “I can’t imagine what Gene has seen.” Carroll will be taking the reins of the Shop as its new owner when the barbers move across town to their new spot on East Hickory Street near the coming A-Train station. The location at 116 Fry St. will be demolished in early March, as developers make way for a new mixed-use retail and apartment complex. “Well, one thing they can’t take is the memories. I’ve been blessed with good people,” Hartman said. “It has been a good run. I’m not ready to hang it up.” The new shop will be located on the bottom floor of the Hickory Street Lofts. It is expected to open within a month, Carroll said. “There is a bit of apprehension. It’s a big change for Gene, but that area holds a lot of promise for a lot of growth,” Carroll said.

Texas might soon become the second state to allow college students and professors to carry concealed handguns with them to class. More than half of the representatives in the Texas House have signed on to co-author a bill that would allow anyone with a concealed carry license to bring guns into dorms, classrooms and other areas of the state’s 38 public university campuses. Texas Governor Rick Perry — who last year shot a coyote with a laser-sighted pistol while walking his dog — said he’s in favor of the bill, as he was in 2009, when the Texas Senate passed a similar bill that failed to make it to law. Utah is the only state that currently allows loaded weapons on campus. Colorado allows campuses to decide individually.

Universities across the state and nation have expressed opposition to the legislation. UNT officials addressed the issue in a December in-house memo. “UNT opposes the passage of any law that would allow the carrying of firearms on campus,” according to the statement. “Introducing guns onto college campuses may increase the safety risks to students, faculty and staff.” It went on to outline reasons for t he opposition, which included concerns about confusion for first responders should a crisis arise, a lack of professional training for students with guns, and “challenges” posed by mixing the alcohol, drug abuse, stress and “social obstacles” that sometimes arise in college life with guns. Some UNT students agree t hat concea led ha ndg uns

would do more harm than good. “I don’t think we should have firearms on campus,” said strategic communications junior Monica Dominguez. “There are other ways to keep safe.” Dominguez said students c ou ld be e duc ate d a nd instructed how to use nonlethal means of self-protection like tasers and pepper spray. Dominguez, who is also a residence hall advisor, said she doesn’t like the idea of students having handguns in their dorms. “There are some people who are more aggressive than ot hers,” Doming uez sa id. “Having guns in the dorms is probably not a good idea.” Other students believe that handguns on campus are a good idea.

Study: High fiber diets prevent illness People who ate fiber 22 percent less likely to die

Editorial Office GAB Room 117 Phone: (940) 565-2353

BY TAYLOR JACKSON Staff Writer

A new government study found that adding more fiber to a healthy diet might better help the body fight sickness. The nine-year study, which was funded by the National Cancer Institute, tracked the diets of participants between the ages of 50 and 71, and found that those who ate the most fiber were 22 percent less likely to die from any cause during the study than those who consumed much less. More specifically, researchers found that participants with high fiber intake were also 24 percent less likely to die from heart disease, 31 percent less likely to die from respiratory diseases, 56 percent less likely to die from infectious diseases, and 17 percent less likely to die from cancer. Fiber comes in two forms: soluble and insoluble, Marisa Moore of the kinesiology faculty said. Soluble fiber is the good kind PHOTO ILLUSTRATION BY ZAC SWITZER/INTERN that attaches itself to cholesterol and removes it, leading to lower Cereal is a great source of fiber.

UNT sounds off on handgun proposal Continued from Page 1 “I don’t mind [handguns],” said chemistry freshman Dillon South. “Everyone and their dog owns a handgun in my hometown.” History sophomore Cody O’Bryant said there would need to be a way to regulate the handguns. “They should have something like a database to show who has guns,” O’Bryant said. “People should have to register with the school.” Chemistry freshman Dylan Harbour agreed with O’Bryant’s regulation ideas. “People who want to have handguns should be screened,”

Harbour said. “They would have to have a totally clean record.” TAMS junior Jordan Jentz believes UNT should allow firearms on campus. “UNT is a public school,” Jentz said. “It would be a bit oppressive not to let students have the means to protect themselves.” Jentz said having handguns on campus is a double-edged sword. “There is a risk with having handguns on campus, but I think students should have them if they want,” Jentz said.

Recycle pickup Kelly Yocum drops off recycle bins outside Chilton Hall. The blue bins containing paper products, are weighed and taken to the recycle center where they wait to be hauled off campus.

Recycling competition spurs nationwide ‘mania’ BY BRITTNI BARNETT Intern

Piles of alumnium, paper and plastic will stack high in blue recycling bins as UNT competes in RecycleMania. The competition, aimed at promoting recycling awareness on college campuses, will take place over a 10-week period ending April 6. The university will collect recycling bins and weigh the materials. Bins are located throughout campus and are picked up daily. “Ever ybody likes a good compet it ion,” sa id Doug Turnage, the recycling services supervisor. “We are hoping this competition will generate a lot of enthusiasm for our efforts.” Colleges competing in the RecycleMania competition are ranked according to who collects the largest amount of recyclables per capita, the largest amount of total recyclables, the least amount of trash per capita, or the highest recycling rate. Students have many options to get involved, including

encouraging others to recycle, putting up signs in their area to promote the event, and contact i ng t he Rec ycl i ng Department if they have any special pick-ups. UNT is one of 630 colleges participating this year, representing 6 million students and over 1.5 million staff and faculty members. Rankings have not been taken on UNT’s current standing in the competition. “Students are encouraged to get involved, because recycling brings in revenue for our university and reduces waste on campus,” said Erin Davis, the assistant director of outreach for the Office of Sustainability. “Our office constantly looks at ways of reducing our carbon footprint, and this is one way we can promote that.” UNT became involved with the event to see how it compared with other colleges’ recycling programs, Davis said. “The thing about RecyleMania that excites me is that it has the potential to

create excitement about something that can start to feel mundane after a while,” said Charles Vincent, a computer educ at ion a nd cog n it ive systems graduate student and Eco Rep advisor. “I think that if people who don’t recycle see people having fun recycling, we can build a group of environmentally conscious and socially engaged citizens.” UNT is a leader in sustainability, especially in the state of Texas, and received an A in the area of Food and Recycling for 2011, Davis said. “In t his competition in particular, we usually do well in the paper and cardboard categories specifically,” he said. UNT plans on doing better during this year’s competition, Turnage said. “The biggest problem we have is with contamination,” she said. “It is important to stress to students to separate their aluminum cans, cardboard and paper when they recycle them.”

Jazz class features famous, notable musicians BY K AYLAH BACA Intern

The jazz studies program offers a course inviting notable musicians to interact and teach during a once-a-week lecture. Jazz Lecture Series, or MUJS 3470, is offered every spring. Studio professors in the music department pick a variety of musicians to perform for students. The series provides advice on musical techniques, careers and tips from experts in the industry. “I think it’s invaluable,” said Jason Valdez, a jazz students graduate student. “We can ask the musicians anything about the industry.” The class is open to majors in other fields with consent of the College of Music, according to the official undergraduate catalog. Valdez said he took the course twice because it was a great opportunity to make face time

with famous performers. Steve Wiest of the music faculty and director of the UNT One O’Clock Lab Band said the class is primarily aimed at highly motivated jazz students. Many graduates from the jazz studies program have been invited back as guests for the class, Wiest said. “It’s tradition for the successful jazz musicians to come and give back to the younger students,” he said. Retired jazz studies professor Neil Slater started the lecture series in 1982. Over 200 musicians have been Jazz Lecture Series guests, including UNT alumni, according to the jazz studies website. Past featured guests include trombonist Eddie Bert, saxophonist Joe Lavano, guitarist Emily Remler and trumpet player Dizzy Gillespie. He said the course is bene-

ficial to continue nurturing students. The majority of the guests perform pieces with students, then open the classes up to questions. Invited artists answer technical information about playing, and some give private lessons to students, Wiest said. The musicians analyze tunes and explain how their music is composed, he said. “One lecture I attended had a great musician who gave a lot of useful tips for entering the business world of jazz,” said Juan Dominguez, a classical performance senior. The next guest for the Jazz Lecture Series is Kurt Rosenwinkel, who is scheduled to play a concert at 8 p.m. on Thursday in Winspear Hall. Admission is free for UNT students, $10 for faculty and staff, and $20 for the public.

Afterwards, she stated that she felt now she could do it again with no problems,” said Abbie Theobald, the organization founder. “Not only is she now confident that if her tube pops, she can fix it, but now she can teach others in the community how to do it themselves.” The Vaginees advocate women’s issues and encourage positive female friendships through group rides and fundraising events. “The workshop is going to be focused on bike safety, adjusting our brakes and truing our wheels. Of course, we’re also willing to

help out with other questions that any attendees may have,” Theobald said. Throug h workshops at Querencia, group rides and other events, the Vaginees have become a family. “It’s a group of friends unlike any other I’ve experienced,” said Rachel Weiner, a history and women’s studies senior. “We come from so many different backgrounds, but have found a common ground in our love of riding bikes. I cannot tell you how many strong, confident and empowered women I have met in this group.” Kati Trice, a leadership and nonprofit studies junior and

Students share creative passion for watercolor BY PABLO A RAUZ Intern

Students with a passion for watercolor painting have the opportunity to reach others through their creativity. The H2OHUE Watercolor Concentration consists of student artists pursuing the distinctive medium of watercolor painting. The group hosts events for members to gain experience in creating and selling art. Meetings are on Mondays at 5 p.m. in Hickory Hall 173. “The goal of the group is to let watercolor students have a community of other painters to share ideas and experiences with,” said Bethany Eden, a studio art senior and member of the group. Members participate in activities on and off campus, said Jaclyn Seidler, a studio art senior and president of the group.

The club allows members to network with professionals, because it’s important to make business connections in the art world, she said. Although the group is made up primarily of art students, anyone is eligible to join, Seidler said. The organization provides a sense of home for artists, said Jonathan Herreros, an art studio senior and member of the group. “In H2OHUE, I feel accepted and happy to follow a path where I can be creative as an artist,” he said.

Warhawks upset favored Mean Green at Super Pit BY BEN BABY

The UNT softball team posted two wins on Sunday. The Mean Green defeated the Demons 5-1 and the Ladies 11-2.

Softball closes weekend with sweep of three opponents BY DONNIE PIPES Intern

The UNT softba ll team entered the Sleep Inn Classic riding a four-game losing streak, but got out of the slump by going 3-1 this weekend. The Mea n Green (5-5) extended its losing streak to five after a 4-2 loss to No. 21 Nebraska, but finished the tournament in fashion, sweeping the last three games. “You have to defend your home,” said junior catcher Caitlin Grimes. “And it helps when you get to sleep in your own bed.”

Friday The Mean Green started Friday with a disappointing loss to Nebraska 4-2 in its home opener. The game started slow, with no score through the first two and a half innings, but Nebraska busted the game open with a four-run third inning. UNT never recovered. The Mean Green started a rally in the fifth inning after a double from junior outfielder Megan Rupp knocked in senior outfielder Monica Hirsch, who reached base on a walk. The Cornhuskers shut the Mean Green down after that inning en route to the victory.

Saturday Day two of the Sleep Inn Classic went better for the

Mean Green, which secured its first win of the tournament by defeating the Tennessee Tech Golden Eag les 5-4. “We’ve gotten some practice in, and we’ve been working on textbook plays,” senior first baseman Mallory Cantler said. “We saw lots of pitches, and that’s always exciting to see.” The Golden Eagles controlled the game until late, when UNT made its rally from the 4-2 deficit. Tennessee Tech jumped out to a n ea rly 2-0 lead in t he f irst in n ing a f ter a couple of w ild pitches. Junior infielder Lisa Johnson, who led the team in home runs last year, knocked another out of the park Saturday to cut the Golden Eagle’s lead to 2-1. Tennessee Tech scored two runs in the fifth inning, but this time the Mean Green answered back. In the sixth inning, Cantler hit the game-winning two-run single up the middle to give the Mean Green the lead for good.

Sunday UNT built on Saturday’s success w it h a w in over Northwestern State in its first game of its doubleheader, 5-1. “We’ve definitely improved,” head coach T.J. Hubbard said. “We have new people on the team, and they’re figuring it out.” The Mean Green started

against the Demons with a run in the first inning after a sacrifice fly by Johnson brought Rupp home. Northwestern State tied the game up in the third, scoring its only run of the game on a ground-out run batted in by inf ielder Ta ra McKenney. The Mean Green closed the game with a strong seventh inning, scoring three runs — two off bases-loaded walks. The second game of the doubleheader ended w it h a blowout favoring UNT. Facing a pitching crew with a 12.2 ERA average, the Mean Green took advantage of wild pitches with solid hitting. UNT raced out to an 8-0 lead thanks to a five-hit, s i x-r u n s e c ond i n n i n g . The Mean Green continued its success in the third and fourth innings, posting three runs in that span to make it 11-1. Centenary scored its second run on a sacrifice fly in the top of the fifth inning. The game ended with an 11-2 score due to the run rule, which ends a game if a team is ahead by eight or more runs after the fifth inning. T he Mea n Green w i l l put its three-game winning streak on the line against the University of Texas at San Antonio Friday at 5 p.m. “We’re gonna keep it as simple as possible,” Grimes said. “UTSA will be a breeze.”

Trailing for most of the second half, UNT couldn’t complete the comeback. The Warhawks pulled a colossal upset, defeating the Mean Green 82-75 at the Super Pit. The loss drops UNT to fifth in the Sun Belt West standings. ULM had one conference win in 14 games coming into the contest, while UNT entered with one home loss in 14 games this season. ULM’s nine-game losing streak, which began with a 79-62 loss against UNT on Jan. 20, ended Saturday UNT could not capitalize on its win over South Alabama last Thursday, and has lost five of its last six games. “We took two steps backwards tonight,” said senior guard Tristan Thompson. “We had an emotional win the other day, and thought that was going to be the fire that was going to get [a win] streak going. But today, we were just terrible. We didn’t deserve to win.” UNT tied the game with 7:32 remaining in the contest, and pulled within two points of ULM with 1:54 to go in the game, but fell short.

People should to look into medicine costs Editorial As allergy and flu season approaches, medicine costs are on the minds of some UNT community members. The Editorial Board advises people to do their research before visiting the doctor and put an effort into their medical care.

Cost of care The Kaiser Family Foundation reported in May 2010 that U.S. spending on prescription drugs grew from $40.3 billion in 1990 to $234.1 billion in 2008. Inflation doesn’t account for that difference. Generic medicines can, in most cases, provide as effective treatment as name-brand drugs. The difference lies in the cost. Other cost-cutting measures, like some discount programs, have suffered reductions or have been cut because of the economy. Another outcome of a terrible economy with about 9 percent unemployment is people have less money to spend on health care. College students feel that economic burden, too. Some have to fend for themselves financially. Many have little to no time to work. Others have little to no time when they can miss work or class. For most, college means gaining financial and personal independence. Sometimes in that struggle to balance their lives, people have to figure out what they can afford. No one should have to choose between food and medicine.

Know before you go According to adrugrecall.com, two recent studies have shown doctors prescribe drugs that pharmacy representatives pitch because the salespeople are pleasant and they establish a personal connection with the physician. As a result, people need to be well-informed about what medicines doctors usually prescribe, shop for the best price at different pharmacies and ask their doctors questions. If they speak up about their financial and medical concerns, patients have a better chance of getting the care they need. In addition to understanding the medicines that might be prescribed, people need to know the extent of their health insurance or other medical care coverage. Sometimes people may not be able to afford what is best for them, but if they talk to the health care professionals, they may be able to find a secondary option to correct the problem. The Board also suggests people visit the doctor to take advantage of preventive care so problems do not get out of hand before they are diagnosed. Students are on their own, so it is their responsibility to get the medicine they need. Knowledge beats an apple a day at keeping the doctor away.

Students sound off on concealed handgun laws Guns should not come to college campuses Three bills on the floor of the Texas Legislature regarding concealed weapons have got students across the state talking. The bills in question — House Bill 86, Senate Bill 354 and Senate Bill 750 — would require universities to allow the concealed carry of handguns on college campuses. It’s scary to think that nestled in my purse next to my lip balm and car keys could be a loaded handgun. It’s scarier knowing that you could have one, too. Many suggest that this will solve the problem of school shootings. However, it seems oversimplified to think that the solution to school violence is more guns. Situations involving school shoot ings cou ld become dramatically complicated by more people with firearms. It is dangerous that complicated situations could become more so as police respond to a call involving a shooter and have to make a snap decision when entering a room, being faced with four people brandishing guns instead of just one. It’s a Hollywood-perpetuated stereotype, but in most situations, a guy holding a handgun in a classroom might as well be wearing a shirt that says “BAD GUY.” Muddying the water with extra persons attempting self defense or vigilante justice makes the jobs of campus police officers significantly more complicated. There is an openness to our university that I fear is threatened by these bills. Students are free to speak their minds on free speech areas, in classrooms and on the Views page you’ve got in your hand or on your computer screen. I worry that students will be less likely to speak their minds knowing that someone with whom they disagree may be holding a loaded gun.

I see the logical argument that the legislation simply allows license-carrying adults to carry concealed weapons they are already allowed to carry elsewhere. Nonetheless, there is a certain safety in knowing that as the policy stands the possession of a gun on campus is illegal, which may serve as a deterrent, however slight. There are a number of concerns tossed about, each valid and each terrifying. Suicide rates may rise on campus if usually rational students buckle under the stress of earning a degree and have a gun they obtained and carry legally. Accidental firing could occur. The bills leave the option of allowing guns in dormitories up to the individual universities, but as a former resident assistant, I can say that the idea of confronting a violation becomes infinitely more terrifying knowing that the resident on the other side of the door may legally have a gun. Though the process to obtain a concealed handgun license in Texas is tedious and requires a course and a clean record, the process in other states is not necessarily so strict, and Texas honors the licenses given in other states. It’s a scary proposition — one I fear that Texas universities are not yet ready to deal with.

Sacrificing liberty for safety isn’t safer It is quite easy to assume that the most effective way to prevent gun violence on campus would be to outlaw guns on college campuses. Ideally, there is no need for concea led handg uns since law enforcement officers can handle violent situations. Unfortunately, t here are severa l f laws to this argument. Although I believe not allowing concealed weapons on ca mpus is wel l-i ntentioned, it is ineffective and it denies responsible citizens their rights. The first and most obvious argument favoring concealed handguns to be carried on campus would be the Second Amendment. The Founding Fathers made it quite clear that “the right of the people to keep and bear arms shall not be infringed.” This does not state t hat there should be exceptions for college campuses. By not allowing concealed handguns on campus, we are essent ia l ly t rad i ng sa fet y for l iber t y. A s Benja m i n Franklin stated, “Any society that would give up a little liberty to gain a little security will deserve neither and lose both.” Although it would be nice to assume that the police are there to protect every citizen at every hour of the day, it is not the case. In the Virginia Tech shoot ing, t he police responded slow enough to allow 32 people to be massacred. If teachers were armed in this situation, the rampage could have been put to a stop much sooner. Not allowing well-intentioned, law-abiding citizens t he right to ca rr y a concea led ha ndg un at a public school does nothing but help criminals who pay no mind to handgun laws. It wou ld be wonder f u l to live in a societ y where

weapons designed to kill did not exist, but as history shows, prohibition will never accomplish t his. Just as a lcohol still existed during prohibition, and marijuana is still abundant despite the Drug Enforcement Administration’s attempts to make it disappear, guns will not go away when they are outlawed. A lt houg h most students abide by t he law a nd do not bring guns on campus, a murderer who intends to k i l l ot hers w i l l obv iously ignore these laws. This now means that the law-abiding, unarmed citizens are sitting ducks. It would be much wiser to accept the reality that guns are not going away, and that taking away a citizen’s right to ca r r y a g u n in cer ta in places punishes the peaceful masses. If we lived in a utopia n society where all people and gover n ment s c ou ld work together, there would be no need for guns. All it takes is five minutes of watching the news to rea lize this is not the case in our world. Gun violence is an inevitable part of living in our society. We mu s t a c c e p t t h a t attempting to not allow guns on college campuses will do nothing but take away rights a nd a llow for tragedies to take place.
