Bill would strip $317 million from nonprofit BY NICOLE BALDERAS Staff Writer

Activists on both sides of the abortion debate are raising their voices on a bill recently passed by the U.S. House of Representatives that would deny funding to the Planned Parenthood Federation of America. President Barack Obama has promised to veto the Pence Amendment, approved Feb. 18 as part of a new spending bill, if it passes the Democratically-controlled Senate. But the House’s approval of the amendment nicknamed the “No Taxpayer Funding for Abortion Act” has thrust abortion back into the national spotlight. If passed, the amendment would cut all of the $317 million in federal funding received by the nonprofit organization annually. “It’s going to cut funding for preventive health care for millions of people,” said Holly Morgan, the communications and media relations director for Planned Parenthood in Dallas. “A lot of people label this as concerning abortion, but neither federal funds nor tax dollars ever go toward abortions.” Planned Parenthood has 28 clinics in North Texas, and provides care to more than 90,000 people a year, she said. The Planned Parenthood in Denton does not provide abortions. Morgan said the cuts will affect the organization’s ability to provide clients with services such as mammograms, pap smears, birth control, family planning services and STD testing for men and women.

Ted Hatch, a member of the UNT anti-abortion organization Eagles for Life, said he’s in favor of the amendment. “Planned Parenthood is the largest abortion provider in the U.S.,” said Hatch, an engineering senior. “The Pence Amendment is a good thing because it removes Title 10 from Planned Parenthood. There are plenty of other alternative clinics that could be used, like the White Rose in downtown Dallas. They give pregnancy screenings, and provide support for after the baby is born.”

“It’s going to cut funding for preventative healthcare for millions.”

—Holly Morgan, Planned Parenthood

Both sides show support The Walk for Choice 2011 was held Saturday in Dallas, and brought out more than 300 people who opposed to the amendment. Organizer of the Dallas walk and president of UNT’s I nter n at ion a l S oc ia l i st Organization, Brit Schulte walked to show support. “It’s absolutely the most outright fault on women’s rights, so we’re meeting that with full force. Our slogan is ‘We have a voice, we have a choice,’” said Schulte, an English senior. “For so long, women have had to deal with second rate medical care, especially poor working class women. We’re trying to reinvigorate the struggle.”

Students protest for representation BY A SHLEY-CRYSTAL FIRSTLEY & DANA WALKER Staff Writer & Intern

About 100 students gathered on the campus green Wed nesday a f ter noon to voice their dissatisfaction with proposed budget cuts and what they said was a lack of student representation at UNT. T he St udents for a Democratic Society, a national student advocacy group that promotes increased representation for students on college ca mpuses, sponsored t he rally as part of National Day of Action. “The ultimate goal is to be able to have some sort of [student] organization that has binding power to have decision making or having the decision making power in the UNT administration,” said Will Wooten, a public administration graduate student and member of the organization. The protest came a day after UNT President V. Lane Rawlins held a public hearing to address concerns over a recently announced proposal to increase tuition. The proposal would add an additional $118 per 15 semester cred it hou rs to st udents’

tuition and generate more than $6 million to offset expected state budget cuts. Orga n i zers of t he ra l ly displayed large posters of what they depicted as a decision hierarchy, with drawings, charts and graphs of the tuition increases, and photos of other international budget

A vote in the SGA literally means nothing,” he said.

Modern music introduces ensemble, So Percussion By M arlene Gonzalez Intern

Bott les, milk crates, gaff tape and wooden boards are some items the So Percussion members use in their performance. The group performs at 8 p.m. tonight at the Voertman Concert Ha ll in t he Music Building as apart of the Fine Art Series. Tickets are on sale at the Murchison box office. The event is free for students, $12 for the public, and $10 for senior citizens and staff. “I’m really excited. You know, UNT is really well known. It has an amazing music program,� said Eric Beach, a member of t he ensemble. “I’m hoping that the students there are really engaged and have a good time.� Ma rk Ford of t he music faculty said he requested for the collection to play at the university two years ago.

Last year, Invisible Children UNT raised more than $5,000 toward its cause to bring awareness of the Uganda war. This year, the organization is hosting The Congo Tour, a documentary screening of “Tony: Lose all Gain Everything,� at 7 p.m. tonight in the Lyceum. Tony, who grew up in the war, will speak after the showing. An after party at The Garage will follow and proceeds will go toward to the organization. The cost is $5 for attendees who are under 21 and $1 for those who are over. “It’s so easy to get wrapped up in grades, jobs and our own plans, but it is important to realize and remember that there are children, and students fighting for a voice and for an education,� said Stephanie Guadagnoli, a history and political science senior and member of the group. The group is among a handful of other chapters in Texas chosen to have Tony as a guest speaker, said Janeth Ibarra, the president of the organization and a child development and family studies senior. “Texas is only getting Tony because we don’t necessarily have the most screenings booked, but we’ve had the most successful screenings,� Ibarra said. “Which basically means [schools in] Texas have raised the most money.�

A new series allows the Denton community to experience live music every Thursday. The Thursday Night Music Series is a nine-week program, showcasing various musical styles performed by the College of Music. The series begins at 7 p.m. tonight at UNT on the Square, and continues every T hu r sday t h roug h Apr i l. Admission is free.

Charles and Francis, Uganda natives, and organization members Liz Gurney and Janeth Ibarra were participants in last year’s Invisible Children’s event. The screening is one of the biggest event for the club this semester and is trying to raise $3,000 toward the cause. Although the organization is hosting the event, other groups on campus such as Psi Chi and Phi Iota Alpha are participating, Ibarra said. Tony’s presence is a significant accomplishment by the collective passion of students involved in and outside the group, she said. “It’s a huge privilege for UNT that Tony is speaking,� Ibarra said. Guadagnoli said people’s dedication to raise awareness to stop the war in Uganda is what inspires her to be a part of Invisible Children.

BY BRETT MEDEIROS Intern

Facing its first Top-10 ranked team this season, t he UNT sof tba l l tea m was held to t wo hits a nd fell to No. 10 Oklahoma 3-0 Wednesday. The Mean Green (6-6, 0-4) is now 0-18 all time against the Sooners (13-5). Freshman pitcher Ashley K irk held her ow n aga inst

the Big-12 Conference opponent, notching her first career complete game while tying a career-high with eight strikeouts. “Given the circumstances of who they were, I felt like I did very well,” Kirk said. “It

was my first ever complete game.” The Mean Green offense was shut down by Sooner sophomore Keilani Ricketts. A junior infielder Lisa Johnson double and freshman infielder Brooke Foster single were UNT’s only hits. “From the first inning, [Kirk] was in control and kept the tempo up,” said head coach T.J. Hubba rd. “She t h rew fantastic tonight.” St r ug g les for t he Mea n Green lineup rested in t he bottom half of the order, as one player in the sixth through ninth spots got on base.. Five of Ricketts’ seven strikeouts came from the bottom of the lineup. “We’re right where we need to be. It’s going to be tough to get hard hits off of a kid like that,” Hubbard said. “She’s legit. Best pitching we’ve seen by far.” The Mean Green defense put up a stout performance, not committing an error all night. “Defense, i f t hey ’re not there behind me, those outs doesn’t matter,” Kirk said. The Mean Green returns to action at 3 p.m. Friday when it hosts t he Texas-El Paso Miners.

The UNT men’s golf team sits on top of a rollercoaster, and it’s about to go for a frenzied ride. The Mean Green begins a hectic four-tournament March schedule with this weekend’s Universit y of South Florida Invitational in Tampa, Fla. UNT hopes to extend its streak of fourconsecutive top-3 tournament finishes. “It’s going to get borderline ridiculous,” said junior Josh Jones. “It’s going to get pretty difficult, but that’s golf, that’s life. You just have to manage it the best you can.” The flurry of tournaments marks the final stretch of the 2010-2011 season, which concludes at the Sun Belt Conference Championship in Muscle Shoals, Ala., April 25 through 27. Stracke said he does not want his players to become int imidated by t he golf course or their opponent. “I just want a bunch of toug h g uy s, ba sic a l ly,” Stracke said. “Guys who have t he menta lit y of a football player yet they’re golfers.” UNT shook off its rust from a three-month tournament absence at the Oak Hills Invitational, Feb.14 and 15, where it finished third behind Texas Tech and Oklahoma in a 17-team field. Redshirt sophomore Ty Spinella led the way for the Mean Green, finishing in a

Top teams tussle vs. Tournament begins Friday, March 4

No. 28 UNT vs. No. 29 Central Florida As the two top seeds in the University South Florida Invitational, the Mean Green and Knights are the favorites to win the tournament. If UNT can maintain its pace, it should record its fifth straight top-3 tournament finish at the least. UNT has not placed outside the top-3 since last April.

three-way tie for sixth place. Spinella’s three-round score of 211 was his best total of the season. Ranked No. 28 by Golfstat. com, the Mean Green w ill be the highest ranked team coming into the Invitational. T he t e a m w i l l c omp e t e against several Florida teams, i nclud i ng No. 29 Cent ra l Florida, No. 49 Florida State, and tournament host South Florida. “You get bumpier greens and higher winds in the afternoon, so the conditions will be more difficult for us than

the teams that tee off earlier, Stracke said. “But we’ll make do with that.” Sun Belt Conference rivals A r k a n s a s St a t e , F l or i d a Atlantic, Middle Tennessee State a nd Troy w i l l a lso compete. Stracke described the course as hilly, which is uncommon for Florida’s landscape, but said it is easier than others. “We have a late tee time,” Stracke said. “The first tee time is around 7:30 a.m., and we’re teeing off around 12:45 p.m., so we’re going to be playing a totally different golf course.”

A f ter la st sea son’s 8-21 regular s e a s o n , things had to get better — except t hey didn’t. BOBBY The regular LEWIS season mercifully ended on Tuesday with UNT’s meek 59-46 loss to A rk a n s a s-L it te Rock a nd five w ins on the board for the Mean Green. UNT will face Wester n Kent uck y in t he f irst round of t he Sun Belt Conference Tournament Saturday, but the Mean Green could not enter the tournament with less momentum. So what’s next? Assuming Stephens returns next season for the fourth year of her fiveyea r cont ract a nd a l l t he underclassmen return, the team w ill only lose senior guard Denetra Kellum. Kel lu m i s t he le ad i ng scorer, but there’s no reason to bel ieve t he tea m ca n’t collectively make up for her 16 points per game. The key will be who the Mean Green brings in and whet her t he returning players show any kind of heart next year. At the point guard, UNT is set. I really like how freshman g u a rd L au r a Mc C oy h a s progressed this season. Junior guard Kasondra Foreman will probably get the starts, which

is fine, because she’s played well since taking over the job this season, but McCoy seems like a natural leader. She’ll add stability to the team for the next three years. In t he post, sophomore for wa rd Jasm i ne Godbolt will continue to be a pillar down low for UNT, but who else ca n play a rou nd t he basket? Godbolt is a beast in the middle but can’t do it by herself. After that, UNT has a bunch of good role players, but no true difference maker. Junior guards Tamara Torru and Brittney Hudson will give you around 10 points every night, but neither will change the complexion of a game on a nightly basis. That’s why the success of this team falls on the shoulders of Stephens. One of the reasons Stephens was hired in 2008 was her recruiting prowess. During her stint as an associate head coach at Clemson, Stephens helped recruit the 22nd ranked class in the nation in 2006. Obv iously, recr uit ing at UNT and Clemson are two d i f ferent t h i ngs, but how this year’s freshmen perform du r i n g t hei r s ophomor e season w i l l be one of t he biggest factors in whether the Mean Green is successful. After all, it can’t get much worse, can it?

Lewis’ Last Call: State of UNT women’s basketball Future depends on Stephens BY BOBBY LEWIS

Senior Staff Writer W h e n t h e 2 010 -2 011 season started, there was a lot of optimism coming from the Mean Green women’s basketba ll tea m. I’m not su re t hat opt i m ism was ref lected by those outside t he tea m, but it’s wor t h mentioning because of the nosedive this team took this season. It’s hard to believe almost four months later, but there was plent y of reason for optimism before the season began. The team had eight new players, which is close to an overhaul of a college team as you can get. By br i ng i ng i n t hose players, head coach Shanice Stephens add ressed t he team’s most glaring weakness: its backcourt. Stephens brought in six guards to go with her existing six players classified as guards. I say “classified” because not all the players listed at guard play in the backcourt. Stephens also hired two ne w a nd ac c ompl i she d assistant coaches: Margaret R icha rds a nd Jim my Stellato.

SGA needs to change its approach Editorial The issues the Student Government Association addresses aren’t relevant. “A vote in the SGA literally means nothing.” Those were comments at a protest led Wednesday by the Students for Democratic Society about the proposed tuition increase and representation of students’ ideas. In response to the protest and a growing sense of discontentment, three members of the Editorial Board asked about 25 students about the Student Government Association on Wednesday afternoon. The students responded with comments like “It’s great in theory,” “I don’t know what it does,” or “I didn’t know it existed.” What they were saying between the lines was SGA is irrelevant despite the fact that it is supposed to serve as a voice for the students. With the tough issues facing college students in the Texas Legislature and on the UNT campus right now, that is unacceptable. In the throes of about a $25 billion budget deficit, the state government is considering cutting considerably from higher education and allowing concealed handgun license holders to carry guns on campus. Because of the threat of a budget cut, the UNT administration has proposed a 2.8 percent increase on top of a previous 3.9 increase in tuition for the 2011-2012 school year. Members of the SGA went to the Texas capitol to present students’ concerns, but we have to wonder whose concerns were mentioned and what position those members took. Money issues The student government has arguably the most power of any student organization here. It has a budget of about $150,000 from student service fees. Its members also sit on committees throughout the university, including the one that decides how student fees are distributed. For their work, SGA President Kevin Sanders and Vice President Mercedes Fullbright make about $9,000 a year. The directors of Campus Involvement and Public Relations make about $5,100 a year each. The other directors receive about $1,530 a year each. On top of that, $41,960 were allocated for internal operations. Some interesting purchases have shown up on the 2010 budget. Those include $1,570 paid for SGA koozies, $15,000 allocated for programming and programming co-sponsorship, and $2,763 for Welcome Back Bash T-shirts. They added $1,000 for promotional items at the meeting Wednesday to the already allocated budget of $2,000. The best promotion for the SGA would be making a difference for students, not SGA Koozies and T-shirts. Students have a right to know how to make their voices heard and not have their money spent on things like name brand, monogrammed cardigans for the executive board. Executives at fault Although the student senators need to make sure their constituents know who they are, the bulk of the responsibility for letting students know about the organization falls on the executive board. When Sanders and Fullbright ran, they said they wanted to continue to make the SGA “a voice for the voiceless” and to keep it at “the forefront of people’s minds,” according to their platform published under the About page of untsga.com. Judging by the 25 students interviewed, they haven’t lived up to their promises. Another pledge the pair made in their platform was to “make sure that the students know exactly where their money is going.” To do that, however, students would need to actively seek out the SGA to get the current budget information, as the information on the website is old. The problem the Board sees with this administration is not a lack of good intentions, but of follow through.

Simple steps can save money on gas Anyone operating a motor vehicle in this country has undoubtedly seen the cost of their trips to the gas station rise somewhat dramatically because of the rising cost of petroleum. The regular unleaded gasoline averaged $3.38 per gallon nationw ide, while diesel’s average cost was considerably higher at $3.71, according to the United States Department of Energy’s online statistics for last week. The recent spike in the cost of fuel in the U.S. seems to correspond with the political and social turmoil unfolding in the Middle East, including the nations of Libya, Egypt and Tunisia, among others. Whether the two are actually related is not for me to decide. It is out of my realm of expertise, as I’m neither a foreign policy expert nor an international economist. Nevertheless, the reality is that gasoline prices are sharply affecting the pocketbooks of many Americans in an already

economically challenging and uncertain time. Personally, I have spent an extra $40 on gasoline in the past 30 days alone. If this trend continues, my disposable income could shrink by $400 or more this year. At a t i me when ma ny Americans are already living paycheck to paycheck with significantly less financial security, the volatile gasoline market is hindering any potential for a considerable economic rebound. For example, companies will continuously be reluctant to expand their workforce while the market remains uncertain and the probability that nonpersonnel or logistical expenditures could spike. Additionally, as one would expect, the rising cost of fuel can also be attributed to an increase in other services or products, such as f lying or produce at your local grocery store. The point of this column is

not to take a stand for or against energy companies. The point is to acknowledge the reality of the current energy situation and offer methods by which Americans can survive the fuel cost increases. I would like to offer a few simple suggestions that I believe will result in real savings. When you go to the grocery store or run other everyday errands, carpool with your neighbor so that you can both accomplish your daily tasks and use half the fuel in the process. When you drive to work, try to coordinate with someone else nearby who works in the same vicinity as you. If you live close enough, consider biking or walking to your destination. I also strongly suggest taking advantage of your city’s public transportation system. A dd it ion a l l y, c on s ide r spending quality family time at home by renting a pay-perview movie or getting to know

your neighbors at a neighborhood gathering. Although these life adjustments may seem somewhat inconvenient, following all or some of them will allow each of you greater peace of mind and decreased financial woes. I wish energy prices were significantly lower, but we must adapt when situations like these arise.

Students need gun rights on campus There is currently a great deal of debate surrounding a proposed bill in the Texas Legislature that would allow licensed individuals to carry concealed weapons on college campuses. A f ter considering ma ny of the opinions I have read, I have concluded that most arguments against the bill are born of ignorance and fear. During my time at UNT, I have taken a number of classes in which I have studied criminal behavior. When we are dealing with madmen, there are no laws we can enact that will stop them. If the potential victims of such a scenario are given means through which they might defend t hemselves, t hei r chances of survival improve greatly. T he a r g u me nt i s not about turning students into armed vigilantes — seeking a confrontation with an active shooter is dangerous and such duties are rightly left to highly trained professionals. T he bi l l before t he Legislature is about giving students a means to defend themselves and safely escape

from an unwanted confrontation with an armed criminal. Most law enforcement agencies acknowledge it would take them at least 20 minutes to fully respond to an active shooter. In the aftermath of the Tucson, Ariz., shooting in January, gun control advocates have argued against “high capacity” magazines on the basis that they supposedly allowed the shooter to fire 33 rounds in less than 16 seconds. Their a rg ument ignores that a trained shooter can accurately f ire 30 rounds out of three 10-round magazines (reloading t w ice) in far less than 16 seconds. It was not, however, the police who ultimately ended that massacre. It was an unarmed citizen who tackled the shooter when he stopped to reload. But what if that citizen had been armed? He may have at least been able to return fire so as to allow himself and others the ability to escape. A n ot h e r a r g u m e n t i s students will be more prone to “snap” and go on killing

sprees if concealed carry is allowed on campus. Contrary to popular myth, most ps ych iat r ic professionals agree that the notion of a previously well-adjusted person simply “snapping” is unsupported by ev idence. A Secret Service study into school shootings concluded t hat school shooter s do not simply snap a nd t hat numerous warning signs typically accompany a person’s dow nw a rd spi ra l tow a rd violence. T he a n s wer i s not to prohibit concealed carry on campus. It is to keep firearms out of the hands of individuals who are prohibited from having them and to allow lawabiding citizens to use them against those who get them anyway. I have been around firearms my entire life and am the founder and President of Texas Marksmen, a UNT student organization dedicate to teaching safe marksmanship to students and helping them improve their existing proficiency. I would urge those who are uncomfortable around firearms to attend one

of our events or take one of our classes. If students took the time to learn for themselves about firearms and how they can be safely used for self-defense, it would be easier to have an informed discussion about concealed carry on campus. I would encourage anyone interested in becoming truly educated on t his issue to visit our page on Facebook or our website at www.texasmarksmen.com.

What can be done The SGA should limit the amount it uses on programming instead of putting on events that overlap with other organizations’ programs. Instead, the association should use that money to help students. The SGA also needs to keep its website updated, host monthly panels to discuss concerns students have and respond to students. If the SGA cannot find effective ways to show positive returns on the students’ $158,000 annual investment in it, maybe it doesn’t deserve to have so much at its disposal. The Board advises students to attend the meetings and make their concerns known because it is also their responsibility to find out how the university works. The SGA meetings, which are open to the public, are at 5 p.m. every Wednesday in Terrill Hall 120. The SGA needs to show students that it is not irrelevant, or it may as well be.
