Residents express gas well concerns An e-mail sent to UTA says a gas well reservoir nearby could pose health risks. BY JASON JOYCE Contributor to The Shorthorn

Confusion over a holding reservoir at the gas well site at Division and Davis streets has caused concern among surrounding neighbors about possible health risks. The worry stemmed from an e-mail sent by Arlington resident Kim Feil to city officials expressing concerns to the university about her family’s exposure

to contaminants in the reservoir. “Natural gas drilling company created a lined reservoir to hold contaminated water at Davis and Division streets,” she wrote. “ In the holding process, evaporation is taking place, and toxins may be in our air.” Darren Groth, a planner with the Arlington Community Development & Planning department, said concerns about the holding pond have no merit. “That water in the holding reservoir is just water out of a


fire hydrant that Chesapeake purchased for the fracking process,” he said. “It’s just regular, potable water.” Chesapeake Energ y spokeswoman Jerri Robbins also said the concerns are unfounded. “That pond only contains clean water,” she said. “We’d never pump reclaimed material back into it. It’s illegal, for one thing.” She also said Chesapeake has only recently started the fracking process on the well. The storage tanks at the site GAS continues on page 3

last week. Karen Horsfall, Digital Library Services coordinator, said the feedback rate is good, but more responses are needed. “Until we know what the people want, it’s hard to say what will change,” she said. Users have indicated that they would like a personal space on the site and the ability to bookmark pages, Horsfall said. “We’ll focus on content,

navigation, look and feel,” she said. “It’s really about delivering library services to users and enabling them to find what they’re looking for.” The library’s page will still be consistent with the university’s Web site. The refurbishing idea came as part of the library strategic plan. “It was raised that the site was four years old, and

Student Art Association hosts art sale fundraiser

Students participate and learn how curbing smoking habits are helpful

The Student Art Association is holding an art sale 10 a.m.-6 p.m. Monday through Wednesday at Gallery West in the Studio Art Center, 810 S. Davis St. Fine Arts senior Kate Stipp said the event happens every semester, and though nonart students may enter a piece, the work is primarily from art students. Stipp said 20 percent of the profits will go to the Student Art Association, the other 80 percent going to the artists. Stipp said students will bring in work throughout the week, and estimates between 100 and 150 pieces, ranging in value from $10 to $300, during the three days. She said work ranges from paintings and prints to sculptures and glass work. â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Sarah Lutz

Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s no secret â&#x20AC;&#x201D; smoking and good health arenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t on the same plane. But Campus Recreation played its part yesterday by asking smokers to kick the habit and participate in the Great american Smokeout â&#x20AC;&#x201D; a national event that challenges smokers to smoke less throughout the day or quit altogether. The message from the Surgeon Generalâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s office states on most tobacco products: â&#x20AC;&#x153;Smoking Causes Lung Cancer, Heart Disease, Emphysema, and may complicate Pregnancy.â&#x20AC;? In 2006, 21 percent of individuals over 18 identified themselves as smokers, according to the national Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. Despite warnings, many students, like Spanish senior Jona Oâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;Brien, continue lighting up. She said she is trying to quit after picking up the habit four years ago. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s nasty,â&#x20AC;? she said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;and I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t want to look 50 when Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m 25.â&#x20AC;? Oâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;Brien originally started smoking when her then-boyfriend smoked two packs a day. She said she just picked it up. She has since tried quitting â&#x20AC;&#x201D; once with the patch and once with gum. Neither worked. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Now Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m trying to stop on my own,â&#x20AC;? she said. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s that personal commitment that Health Services physician Rodger Mitchell said helps. â&#x20AC;&#x153;If you donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t want to, youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re probably not going to,â&#x20AC;? he said. If hurting oneâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s health isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t enough reason to quit, perhaps the chance of missing out on a job or the fact that it is increasingly unacceptable in public circles, will help make the final decision. Mitchell said if a potential employer discovers that an applicant smokes, the applicant might get overlooked. He said they can be cited as an insurance risk. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It hurts your chances of getting a job,â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;In terms of your economic success in the job world, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a negative in most cases.â&#x20AC;? Campus Recreation hosted the event as a support system for the second year in a row. Fitness assistant director Kala Markovich said they had a pretty good flow of participants in the

Come all Ye Faculty, Staff Freshmen Leaders on Campus plan 18 holiday activities for the kids By Dustin Dangli Contributor to The Shorthorn

The University Center’s Palo Duro Lounge will be filled with “ho ho ho’s” Saturday when Saint Nick visits — only Saint Nick will be Greek Life and University Events director Seth Ressl’s father. Bob Ressl’s appearance as Santa Claus has been a part of Freshmen Leaders on Campus’s Holiday Extravaganza for seven years, said Amanda Gonzalez, FLOC Community Service committee co-chair. Children will take pictures with Santa and place them in handmade picture frames they created that morning. FLOC plans to treat the children to many events and activities including letters to Santa, Thanksgiving cookie decorating, face painting and more. With 18 total festivities, FLOC attempts to keep the event nondenominational, aside from the Santa Claus ap-

pearance, FLOC adviser Bess Alvarez said. “We’re trying to keep a holiday base — snowmen, penguins — just holiday things,” Gonzalez said. The activities have a Thanksgiving and winter motif and music will play in the background. While most of it will be celebration music, the last 30 minutes will feature a number of dance songs, including the chicken dance to encourage children activity, FLOC Adviser Jennifer Fox said. Rather than focus on students, FLOC gears this event toward building a community between faculty and staff. “This shows our professors that they’re not just our teachers,” FLOC member Emma Whinnery said. “It shows that we care.” Whinnery said the one activity she’s most excited about is making candy cane mice. “I made them and it was my

Whether the site presents a risk is only part of the problem — lack of city planning is the bigger issue, Salzman said. “The city has put the cart before the horse with urban drilling,” she said. “They didn’t take the time to put regulations in place. They just signed off on the leases.” Jason Joyce

it was time to look at it and see what works and what doesn’t work,” Horsfall said. Web specialist Candy McCormick created the survey’s advertising. She said her approach was, “What do you want your library Web site to be?” Student input is vital because students utilize the site the most, she said. Marketing junior David Stark, who works in the library basement and helps students with Web problems, said the Web site navigation seems complicated. “There are a lot of people who come down here and ask us how to use it,” he said. He said the site shouldn’t

be changed entirely but needs improvements. Survey participants can sign up for an e-mail list to help the library with future user tests, which will add them to a prize drawing. Results will be analyzed in December and January and prioritized for spring. Survey organizers will set up a table in the Central Library foyer next to Java City the week after Thanksgiving. They chose to have the survey online to reach a larger audience, Horsfall said. “We have a wide range of customers, so we can’t depend on just people coming through our doors,” she said.

There was some thought on how other societies could have symbols arranged in the semi-circle, he said. “That area with the semicircle was ideal in terms of having additional honor societies,” he said.

TOLEDO, Ohio — An agency director improperly used state computers to find personal information on “Joe the Plumber,” a government watchdog said in a report released Thursday. There was no legitimate business purpose for the head of

Ohio’s Department of Job and Family Services to order staff to look up the records, Inspector General Tom Charles said. “All these searches were done in the midst of a national political campaign,” the report said. “But we did not find any evidence that shows the data was

accessed or information released in response to media requests in an effort to support any political activity or agenda.” Gov. Ted Strickland suspended the agency director, Helen Jones-Kelley, for a month without pay after reviewing the findings. He rejected a request to

fire her. Earlier this month, Strickland placed Jones-Kelley on paid leave over separate allegations that a state computer or e-mail account was used to assist in political fundraising for Democrat Barack Obama’s campaign.


Detective cuffed to Oswald can’t escape photo tHe AssociAted Press

DALLAS — Retired Dallas police detective Jim Leavelle still gets letters from strangers because of that 1963 photo of him standing next to Lee Harvey Oswald. You know — THAT photo. “Most just want autographs,” Leavelle said. “One asked what affect the Kennedy assassination had on my life. The usual.” As the nation marks the 45th anniversary Saturday of the Kennedy assassination, the 88-yearold Leavelle remains one of the investigation’s most famous figures. Standing out in his tan

suit and matching Resistol cowboy hat on Nov. 24, 1963, Leavelle was handcuffed to Oswald when Jack Ruby fired his .38-caliber pistol in an attack immortalized in the famous photo from the basement of Dallas police headquarters. Leavelle leans back, his eyebrows furrowed and face stunned. Oswald grimaces. To the right, Ruby leans in and is still pointing his gun at Kennedy’s assassin. The photo made Leavelle’s face known worldwide, and began a lifetime of explaining how he ended up handcuffed to Oswald more times than he can count.

Retired Dallas Police Department Detective Jim Leavelle poses in the former book depository building, now known as The Sixth Floor Museum at Dealey Plaza, Wednesday. Lee Harvey Oswald fired the fatal shots that killed President John F. Kennedy, in Dallas November 22, 1963, from the building.

“How many hairs are on a dog’s back?” Leavelle said this week after another retelling at The Sixth Floor Museum in Dallas. The story begins the same each time: Leavelle didn’t even have an assignment when Kennedy’s motorcade came through Dallas. But once word reached

teered immediately to investigate. The death of Dallas police officer J.D. Tippit — who Oswald shot after fleeing downtown following the assassination — later put Oswald in an interrogation room with Leavelle. The two didn’t get much time together. At least not until two days later, when Leavelle escorted Oswald out of Dallas police headquarters to be taken to the county jail.

Fair Park :8EEFE=F;;<IYp@jXXZ<i`Zbjfe in Dallas was originally considered, but the city couldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t justify raising taxes for it. With no public transportation or solutions to the current traffic problem, Arlington is not equipped to host such big events. People should consider who would actually benefit from things like the 2010 NBA All-Star Game before getting too starry-eyed about highprofile events.

“We choose to pay it this way.” Ward said the $64,945 has stayed the same for several years and that the private allocation has gone up to pay the total salary. “This is our choice and could just as easily be the reverse,” he said. Ward said the UT System tells him how much the president will make, and Ward chooses how to allocate funds. Therefore, Lewis said, tuition changes don’t drive presidential salaries. A Nov. 19 Dallas Morning News article made comparisons, with a headline stating, “As college costs grow, so do leaders’ paychecks.”

The average professor at UTA receives $97,600, an increase of $3,100 from 20062007, according to the survey. The average male professor makes $98,500, the average female $91,500.

Jordan Reeves, a 6-foot-10-inch senior from Louisville, Ky., signed a National Letter of Intent to join the Mavericks for the 2009-2010 season.

Mavericks snag eight recruits for ’09-’10 The baseball team announced its early signing class for the 2009-2010 on Thursday, with eight recruits pledging to come play for the Mavericks with National Letters of Intent. Among the eight were two Arlington products, both from Martin High School. Brian Nephew, who may play either infield or outfield, finished the 2008 collegiate season with six home runs and 35 RBIs for the McLennan Community College Highlanders in Waco. Catcher Daniel Garcia, who will finish his career at Martin this season, hit .444 for the Warriors during his junior season. His performance earned him All-District honors as well as the Defensive Player of the Year award. Overall, the Mavs signed six players with infield experience, three players with outfield experience, one catcher and one left-handed pitcher.

the women’s basketball team failed to win back-toback games against Metroplex foes, falling to texas Christian 70-45 thursday night. After a back and forth first half, the Mavericks let up in the second, allowing the Frogs (3-0) to turn a close game into a blowout. “I’m not happy with our performance,” head coach samantha Morrow said. “I know we’re a lot better than that.” At the end of a hard fought first half by both teams, the Mavericks (1-1) trailed the Horned Frogs 29-21. Neither team shot well from the field in the half, with the Mavericks shooting 25.7 percent to the Horned Frogs 24.3 percent. the Mavs played a very good defensive game in the first half and kept the game within reach, Morrow said. “We played hard for about 30 minutes,” she said. “After the girls realized we were going to lose, they let up a little bit.” senior forward Erin Dixon led the Mavericks with her second double-double of the

season, scoring 13 points and was horrendous,” Morrow said. “We shot 20-something pulling in 11 rebounds. Also in double figures percent. that’s ridiculous, was senior forward Candice we’re a better shooting team Champion, scoring 12 points then that.” the Mavs only sent eight and grabbing 13 rebounds. Champion said she wasn’t players into the game, while able to find her groove until the Horned Frogs used 12 later on in the game due to players. Morrow said the lack of depth played a role in the tough tCU pressure. “they switched up their loss. UtA started the game defense,” she said. “they knew from the get-go they weren’t with a lot of excitement going going to be able to play us against a good team like tCU, who defeated then-No. 3 man to man.” Champion finished the Maryland by 12 early in the game perfect from the free- season. “We were really excited throw line, making all eight of to get out there her attempts. and play against tCU started a team like tCU,” the second half coMiNG up Dixon said. on a 6-0 run — Sunday Morrow said after ending the at Texas Tech the Mavs are prefirst half on a Time: 2 p.m. paring for consimilar 12-0 run ference games by — forcing MorPlace: Lubbock playing against row to call her ‘tough teams’ like first time out of texas Christian. the half. the Champion and Dixon both Horned Frogs continued to build on their lead from the agreed that the team has a lot first half and there was no to work on but know what the team is capable of. looking back. “We need to say focused on the Mavericks had a hard time all night driving the lane what our main goal is,” Dixon against a bigger tCU team. said. the Mavericks travel to the Mavs found themselves shooting beyond the arc 21 Lubbock this weekend to play times, and only three of those against the texas tech red raiders. tip-off is sunday at shots fell through. the Mavs shot 24.1 per- 2:30 p.m. cent from the field for the overall game, while tCU shot BeN HauSS 33.8 percent. “our shooting percentage
