Plastic bag recycling ordinance extended Grocery stores still required to have recycling programs By CLAIRE TAN Aggie City Editor

On Sept. 19, Gov. Jerry Brown signed a measure that prolongs Senate Bill (SB) 1219 until Jan. 1, 2020. It was set to sunset on Jan. 1, 2013. SB 1219 by Sen. Lois Wolk (D-Davis) requires California grocery stores to have a recycling program for plastic bags. Besides single-use carryout bags, plastic products such as plastic bags for bread, dry cleaning, shrink wrap and other types of plastics are accepted by the recycling programs. In 2006, Assembly Bill (AB) 2449 was passed, requiring grocery stores to have recycling programs for single-use plastic carryout bags. However, it prohibited California local governments

from enacting a fee on such bags, thus many local governments ended up outright banning plastic bags and charging for carryout paper bags. According to the bill’s analysis, the extension repeals a preemption prohibiting local governments from implementing their own separate plastic bag recycling programs, additional auditing or reporting requirements and fees on plastic bags. In support of the bill are 1 Bag at a Time, Command Packaging, Western Plastics Association, League of California Cities, California Association of Counties and the Regional Council of Rural Counties. “One of the things that is helpful for local governments is that it provides a source-separated stream that can be recycled or

“Even if you ban plastic bags, there’s still going to [be] a stream of plastic coming through, at least for a certain period of time,” Ross said. “Where it is used, we think this is an important part of the overall stream that keeps plastic bags source-separated. It’s an alternative to showing up in the grocery curbside container or showing up at the landfill.” Martinson said she considers the bill part of the solution, but not the total solution. “There are a number of cities and counties in California that have already either instituted bans on plastic bags or have imposed fees,” Martinson said. “I know the rates or the analysis of the bill I’ve read are pretty low for recycling, but I think that coupled

“24-hour room receives renovation” ASUCD senate bill calls for new paint, artwork

Pepper spray settlement calls for ACLU to assist in UC campus reforms

Lucas Bolster / Aggie

ASUCD senate bill 120 allows for the 24-hour study room to recieve its first renovation in 20 years.


After a year and a half, the 24-hour study room on campus is getting the restoration needed for a more welcoming study space for students. “It smells like sweat and defeat in that place. Maybe some plug-ins or working AC would be nice, anything to get rid of the smell,” said Krystal Gutierrez, fourth-year sociology and Chicana/o studies double major. Former ASUCD senators Andre Lee, Rebecca Sterling, Bree Rombi and Yena Bae were involved in the project to renovate the 24-hour study room. According to ASUCD Senate Bill 120, ASUCD — along with the Aggie Public Arts Committee (APAC) — began the project to beautify the 24-hour study room in fall 2010, but until now it was placed on hold due to “lack of communication.” Along with the library’s funding of $1,043, the beautification of the 24-hour study room cost ASUCD $993 — $743 from Senate Reserves and $250 from APAC — according to ASUCD senator Joyce Han, who authored the bill. “One reason behind the renovation was continuing collaboration between different groups on campus, for example ASUCD and the library. Also, so many people I know complain about the 24 hour study room. Although it isn't directly under ASUCD, it is important for us to recognize what the student body wants and needs to help improve UC Davis as a whole,” Han said in an e-mail interview.

Today’s weather Sunny High 100 Low 58

The renovation of the 24-hour study room began after Summer Session II on Sept. 17 and was scheduled to be completed Sept. 30, during which time students were not allowed to study in the room. According to Han, due to lack of proper funding, the room had not been painted in 20 years. “I am an avid user of the [24-hour study room] and think it is a great part of campus, especially when you really need to cram … it could use some sprucing up, though: The desks are old and scratched up, the chairs could use cushions and the place always smells [like] funk,” said Malisa Meemari, fifth-year exercise biology and Spanish double major. During its renovation, the 24-hour study room received a new paint job — mint green walls — along with artwork from multiple campus groups, such as APAC and Mustard Seed Ministry. “The original idea is for it to be a rotating art gallery like the art gallery in the Coho. It's another way of supporting the arts on campus and giving students the opportunity if they'd like to contribute to the campus,” Han said. Han also said that she researched colors that are best for a study atmosphere and consulted professional painters and interior designers. “Although this renovation doesn't fix all problems of the 24-hour study room, it's a first step in the right direction. I want to continue to work with the library to create a better atmosphere in this room for all of us,” Han said.

Details of the settlement between the American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU) and the University of California regarding the Nov. 18 pepper spray incident were released last Wednesday on the UC Davis Quad during a press conference at which some of the settlement’s plaintiffs and attorneys spoke. A total of $1 million was distributed between the plaintiffs, the attorneys and the ACLU. The settlement also details an agreement between the ACLU and the UC system, and UC Davis in particular. The ACLU

will assist all UC campuses in a series of reforms that were decided on following the aftermath of the incident last November. The reforms will aim to reduce police involvement in on-campus incidents, garner increased student, faculty and university staff involvement and reexamine the UC’s Freedom of Expression guidelines. The changes will necessitate community involvement in major decisions. “We are very, very optimistic about the upcoming year,” said Barry Shiller, executive director

of Strategic Communications. “We know there are still potential concerns based on what happened in November ... we’re going into the year well prepared to manage conflict.” Students, including pepper spray plaintiff Ian Lee, agree that reforms must be made. “I think the settlement is a step in the right direction, but we need to do more ... If campus police are to exist, they must be accountable to the students,” he said.

The BUZZ took place from 6 to 10 p.m. last Friday on the Quad. As one of the most anticipated and well-attended events of the Fall Welcome festivities, the night included casino games, arts

and crafts, food, raffle prizes, a mechanical bull ride, video games, inflatable games and many tables for campus groups to hand out free items. The live performances of the night included a cappella

group performances, a Cal Aggie Marching Band-uh! show as well as a miniature concert by Shwayze and MK Modern.

In the first-ever Big Sky Conference game played at Aggie Stadium, the UC Davis football team captured their first victory with a 37-13 win over the Weber State Wildcats. Sophomore running back Dalton Turay led the offensive attack with three rushing touchdowns, the first Aggie to do so since 2006. UC Davis improves to 2-3 with a 1-1 conference record, while Weber State

After public discussion and questions from Goss, Bottoms and Gilbert, an e-mail sign-up sheet circulated for further information and support. Appointments and confirmations Because two members of the senate were absent, Kapur moved to delay confirmations until the next meeting. After debate, the senate rejected the motion and the confirmations continued. Aaron Hsu was confirmed as chair of the Elections Committee.

Romana Norton, campus counselor with Counseling and Psychological Services (CAPS) and founder of food service unit The Pantry at UC Davis, discussed how the volunteer system of The Pantry was resulting in an under-utilization of the service. Norton said that because the volunteers did not consist of a mixed group of gender, sexual orientation and race, many visitors to The Pantry became deterred. Goss proposed that Padgett author and introduce a bill that amends the introduction of the Pantry bill to include CAPS. The bill would aim to demonstrate that CAPS is permanently attached to The Pantry. All senators agreed that the unit’s being underutilized and misrepresented was an issue that needed to be addressed and it was agreed that the discussion would continue outside of the meeting. Meeting adjourned at 9:11 p.m. Open positions within ASUCD can be found at ADAM KHAN compiles the senate briefs. He can be reached at campus@theaggie. org.

falls to 0-5 and 0-2 in conference. “It was a team effort completely. I couldn’t have done it without the other 10 guys on the field,” Turay said. Head coach Bob Biggs had good things to say about his second-year running back, not just about how he plays but also how he carries himself on and off the field. “He’s deceptively quick, he’s strong enough to break a lot of hand tackles and he’s just very determined,” Biggs said. “When it’s all said and done, he is the heart and soul of the team.

think his personality and the way he plays dictates what type of team we are.” The Aggies’ offense wasted no time putting points on the board as the team showed off their no-huddle offense, marching 62 yards on a drive that took less than two minutes to open the game. The drive was capped off by an 18-yard touchdown from junior quarterback Randy Wright to redshirt freshman wide receiver Tim Benton, who hauled in the pass with a jumping one-handed catch. “We had one-on-one coverage there so I just gave Ben a chance to catch it and he came up with a great play and a touchdown,” Wright said. “I thought Tim Benton’s one-handed touchdown catch ignited the team and we were off and running from there,” Biggs said. The Aggies’ defense also flexed their muscles as they forced four turnovers and also had four sacks throughout the game. Senior linebacker Byron Gruendl had two picks and junior cornerback Dre Allen led the Aggies with eight tackles. “As a defense we came in just ready to play and we wanted to have our breakthrough game,” said junior defensive end Nick King. King led the team with 1.5 sacks in a dominating effort by the defense line that was constantly forcing the opponent’s quarterback to scramble from

UC Davis has developed into quite a prominent front-runner in cross country. As the season enters full bloom, both the men and women runners have been gaining experience that will help them in the upcoming months of competition. At the Pac-12 preview hosted by UCLA, the Aggies tested their might by sending down their more experienced runners. Sarah Sumpter led the women by placing second overall and junior Alycia Cridebring finished fifth in the women’s 5k race. Four other UC Davis runners finished in the top 30 of a strong field. As for this past weekend, the Aggies put other runners to the test at the Stanford Invitational. The women’s cross country team threw a handful of younger runners into the mix to gain some experience.

The Aggies sent four freshmen, which included Venus Shabgahi who placed 30th, the highest of the UC Davis women. Sophomore Melinda Zavala followed Shabgahi’s performance with a 22:21 in the 6k and junior Hilary Teaford finished three seconds after Zavala. The women’s runners placed 10th overall on Saturday. The UC Davis men’s cross country team showed considerable promise, despite sporting a less-experienced roster. Sophomore Trevor Halsted led the Aggies with a 24:37 that was good for a 12th-place finish on the 8k course. “On a day that saw the men’s course run considerably slower than in previous years, Halsted cemented himself as this team’s front-runner with his race,” said head coach Drew Wartenburg. The men’s team, which finished eighth at the Stanford Invite, is comprised of freshmen and sophomores (10 and three, respectively) as well as

two lone juniors in Grayson Hough and Nathan Strum. UC Davis will enter the season as underdogs in most races, seeing that the freshmen have not yet established themselves on a collegiate level, but they show no signs of backing off. “Grayson did what we needed him to do, and it was good to see two freshmen step into scoring roles,” Wartenburg said. Both the men and women’s cross country teams have much to prove as they continue to plow through the year. The women will be defending their first ever Big West Conference title, while the men must make a name for themselves on the NCAA Division I level.

I can speak from personal experience, from one who started out with absolutely no attachment to UC Davis athletics, that the Aggies have a unique feel to them, each team with its own personality and characters. So do it. Go to a game. Stay the whole time. Cheer for your school. When you start going out to athletic events, you’ll get sucked in by the X-factor of UC Davis’ sports.

I know in your mind, you’re wondering, “If he’s not going to write about those things, what else could he possibly write about?” UC Davis athletics has an almost unlimited amount of material to cover.

Cont. from page 2 interesting. I apologize in advance for all the outlandish references to Star Wars, Disney, Pixar, Harry Potter, etc. But that’s the closest I can get to relating to society. Now, I’m not one to predict the future, but just as the Fates knew indoor plumbing was going to be big, I think the same goes for UC Davis. The Aggies have been pushing the envelope in the recent past, and as the campus and UC Davis as an institution develops, it continues to become an attractive campus for the nation’s top students and athletes. So now we go forth into the new year, charging forward (“They call me Mr. Pig” battle cry optional) and on for the ride as UC Davis makes its push to the top. So much has happened this past summer, while the Aggies are in a very interesting crossroads in their developing legacy. We had three athletes affiliated with UC Davis go to the Olympics, got a new Athletic Director that you may have seen at any of our NCAA sport competitions, had several coaching changes and had some shifts in the conference composition. Interested in any of these things? Well, then I guess I’ll see you in next week’s column. That should buy me enough time to think of what to say.

Cont. from page 2 the pocket. “We came together in spring ball and we knew we had something special. We got a lot of young guys and we took that in,” he said. Special teams also made a huge contribution as redshirt freshman kicker Brady Stuart booted in three field goals (44, 32 and 40 yards respectively). Sophomore linebacker Ryan Dimino also had a punt block that led to one of Turay’s touchdowns. The game was the first home game for the Aggies this year with all the students back from summer, cheering on their team. “We fed off the emotion and the energy from the crowd,” Biggs said. “We came down the tunnel and saw the stands full with all the students and that ignited the team and got everyone really excited. Yes, it’s a game, you’re playing for yourselves and your team, but you’re also playing for the student body and when you see that kind of support, it makes you want to play well. I thought they came out and entertained very well tonight.” Wright felt this performance was particularly satisfying. “[There was a] filled house tonight and it was just nice to get this win under our belt in front of our fans in our home opener in the Big Sky,” Wright said. Next week, the Aggies face Big Sky powerhouse Montana State for the Homecoming game at 4 p.m. at Aggie Stadium.
