The groundbreaking for College Park, a residential, retail and park-

ing development, will be at 10 a.m. Monday on the southwest corner of the parking lot in front of Arlington Hall. The purpose of the groundbreaking is to celebrate and commemorate the start of construction to College Park, said Amy Schultz, communication and community relations

associate vice president. “It is going to create a hub of entertainment and education on the east side of campus that we have never had,” she said. The $80 million development, will include a residence hall, a parking garage for 1,800 vehicles, retail and office suites, a Welcome Center

and a satellite campus police station. The development located south of UTA Blvd. between Pecan and Center streets is scheduled to be completed in 2012. Kristi Nelson from NBC 5 will be the emcee for the groundbreaking and remarks will be made by Stu-

dent Congress President Aaron Resendez, Dennis Wiles, First Baptist Church of Arlington senior pastor, Mayor Robert Cluck and President James Spaniolo. Resendez said the benefit of College Park is it will make Arlington PARK continues on page 4

Project plants green promises Center Street Green could be the first landscape certified by the Sustainable Sites Initiative. BY SARAH LUTZ The Shorthorn senior staff

The Center Street Green has the potential to not only be the university’s first landscape certified as a sustainable site – but the first in the world. The Sustainable Sites Initiative was developed a few years ago to provide recognition for people to build environmentally-friendly landscapes and not just buildings, said Jim Lapides, American Society of Landscape Architects spokesman. Started by the Lady Bird Johnson Wildflower Center, United States Botanical Garden and the American Society of Landscape Architects, the global initiative is modeled similarly to the building certification by the U.S. Green Building Council. The university’s site will include pavement with recycled glass, drought-tolerant plants and will restore drainage to Johnson Creek, which receives much of the runoff from the campus and surrounding area. “There are a lot of folks out there creating sustainable places using sustainable practices, but there isn’t a comprehensive way of codifying, ‘Is this place really sustainable in a holistic fashion?’” Lapides said. GREEN continues on page 4

SUSTAINABLE SITE INITIATIVES There are 161 Sustainable Site Initiatives in the world: • Iceland • Canada • Spain There are 158 in the U.S. • Varying from Washington to Florida There are 11 in Texas primarily located around DFW, Austin and Houston. • Varying from a Walmart to the Lady Bird Johnson Wildflower Center

Brisket with a side of legal advice Attorney gives advice about how to react and handle encounters with law enforcement. By Natalia CoNtreras The Shorthorn staff

If stopped by police while driving, it is not a crime to refuse to answer questions — but it is a crime to refuse to show proof of identity. This and several other questions were answered by Keisha Ware, UTA attorney for the students, at the second annual Don’t Get Busted BBQ Wednesday night. “The event is here to provide educational opportunities for students who want to know what their rights are when they have a police encounter,” Ware said. “This is a way for students to ask questions in an environment where they can feel comfortable and know they can ask anything and wont get in trouble.” Student Legal Services, Student Governance and Organizations and OffCampus Mavericks hosted the event. It included a buffet-style barbecue and a showing of “Busted: The Citizen’s Guide to Surviving Police Encounters”.





Afrin Zaman, materials engineering graduate student, has lived in the U.S. for almost two years. The Bangladesh native said she attended the event to learn what the rules are in this country. “It is useful to know what do in certain situations. I want to know what my rights are,” she said. “It is also important to just get informed and know what the penalties are in these cases.” The film also showed students what to do and gave tips on different scenarios where police officers would get involved. For example, do not bad mouth the police or try to run away. Evading the police could lead to an arrest. U.S. and Texas constitutions give one the rights to refuse to allow an officer to search one’s car or one’s home without a warrant. “Always remember to be courteous to police officers,” Ware said. Advertising senior Judith Huni said most people panic and do not know what to do when they encounter police. “This is a great way to educate students and the community that Student Legal Services is here to give advice for free,” she said. “This let’s us ask our UTA attorney questions and police officers, as well. They’re literally trying to help us not get busted by the cops.”

Ware said she encourages students to make an appointment with her if legal advice is needed. “It can be anything from traffic offenses, felonies, misdemeanors or landlord disputes,” she said. “Any legal advice students need, we are here to help and it is free.” Natalia CoNtreras

High court struggles with funeral protest case WASHINGTON — Supreme Court justices on Wednesday pondered the vexing question of whether the father of a dead Marine should win his lawsuit against a fundamentalist church group that picketed his son’s funeral. The complexity and weightiness of the First Amendment issue were palpable in the courtroom as justices heard arguments in the case of Albert Snyder. His son died in Iraq in 2006, and members of the Westboro Baptist Church protested the funeral to make their point that U.S. deaths in Afghanistan and Iraq are punishment for Americans’ immorality, including tolerance of homosexuality and abortion.

more of a college town. He plans to speak about additional benefits students should expect to see after the completion of College Park. Schultz said there will be giveaways at the groundbreaking and a reception with light refreshments. She said the groundbreaking gives the university the opportunity to thank the City of Arlington and First Baptist Church of Arlington, two main partners involved with the construction of College Park. Arlington has committed up to $18 million toward the parking garage and First Baptist Church has donated about 1.5 acres of land for College Park. Terry Bertrand, First Baptist Church administration associate pastor, said the church will receive parking utilization at certain times of the week and on Sundays. “We think it’s an excellent proj-


Officials: Texas college student killed in Mexico BROWNSVILLE, Texas — Officials say a south Texas college student has been shot and killed in Mexico. UT- Brownsville spokeswoman Amy Lynch said 19-year-old freshman Jonathan William Torres was killed in Matamoros. Lynch tells the Brownsville Herald that the university was trying to get more information from the U.S. Consulate in Matamoros, across the U.S.Mexico border from Brownsville.


US apologizes for attack on Pakistani soldiers ISLAMABAD — The U.S. apologized Wednesday for a recent helicopter attack that killed two Pakistani soldiers at an outpost near the Afghan border, saying American pilots mistook the soldiers for insurgents they were pursuing. The apology, which came after a joint investigation, could pave the way for Pakistan to reopen a key border crossing that NATO uses to ship goods into landlocked Afghanistan. Pakistan closed the crossing to NATO supply convoys in apparent reaction to the Sept. 30 incident.

feedback for the initiative about what works, what doesn’t, what is attainable and what might not be, Hopman said. The program has prerequisites that have to be met and then a point system. For example, to pass a prerequisite, the site must reduce treated drinkable water use by 50 percent from an established baseline. But to get a point, the site would need to reduce it by 75 percent and for more points up to 100 percent. “We need to feed back to them about how realistic it is in our area where rainfall is so variable, versus some other areas where it’s a lot easier to handle something like that,” Hopman said. A number of the pilot projects are nonprofit or government-owned, but they were sure to include developments of all different sizes from parks to office buildings and private homes to major urban development, said Saralee Tiede, lady Bird Johnson Wildflower Center communications director. “The project at UT-Arlington is going to play an important role because we’re all going to learn from that project,” she said. ect that enhances us as a church, but also esthetically, it will be a beautiful facility,” he said. “it shows a great example of how the city, the university and the church are joining.” College Park is part of the College Park district, which includes the College Park Center and The Green at College Park. The College Park Center, formerly known as the Special events Center, is a facility for special events, like concerts and sports games, which is scheduled to open in winter 2011. The Green at College Park is a $2.1 million green space, scheduled to open later this fall. Schultz said she hopes the College Park groundbreaking will help people know the impact that this project will have on Arlington and the university. “i hope it helps people tie everything on Center Street better,” she said. “This is going to bring additional activities to our students.”

Tiede said the important part is that the program benefits the public and not just private businesses. Hopman said the Center Street Green is a step forward for the campus and he hopes the university learns from the experience. “i would like to have the Sustainable Sites initiative be part of all the projects on campus, just like the leed is for buildings,” he said.

Health concerns force Carrizo to take action Carrizo Oil and Gas Inc. was notified of nuisance violations by the Texas Commission on Environmental Quality and a formal enforcement action was initiated. Carrizo must take action to address the alleged violations within 30 days, according to the notice of enforcement compliance by the agency. The enforcement letter provided by TCEQ spokeswoman Andrea Morrow said the agency was granted enforcement powers by the Legislature to carry out its mission to protect human health. Arlington resident Sandra DenBraber made complaints to state agency and provided them with medical records that stated she had experienced asthma, frequent migraines, nausea, elevated blood-pressure and other symptoms since November 2007. A formal enforcement action seeks an order and an administrative penalty, according to TCEQ. This process also may include a hearing. The Carrizo Oil and Gas Inc. production manager was unavailable for comment by 7 p.m. Wednesday.

Event to answer midterm questions New event aims to help students stay on track as they approach midterms. By RAchel snyDeR The Shorthorn staff

University College will host Midterm DISorientation — an event where students can ask questions about advising and tutoring as midterms approach. The event will be held from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. Monday on the University Center mall. Matthew Hendricks, University College programming and marketing director, said the offices that now make up University College have always had midterm-related questions this time of year and decided to team up for an event to answer frequently asked questions. Supplemental instruction coordinator Rebecca Bailey said the University Tutorial and Supplemental Instruction office will have a table at the event that will address general questions about tutoring and what classes are available for tutoring.

“Since this is the first time having this event, we want to have a successful event,” Bailey said. “We want to provide accurate information that’s helpful for students at the time and help all students who stop by.” Students can also seek advice from counselors or tutors to find out about how to manage stress and test anxiety. Hendricks said their most frequent questions this time of year deal with test anxiety, managing stress, how tutoring works and how to get a tutor. “We want students to think about how to manage their time, when to register for class and look at their grades,” he said.

DisoRienTATion When: 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. Monday Where: University Center mall The event will give students the opportunity to ask questions about advising and tutoring to prepare for midterms.

He said with spring registration starting Oct. 25 and with more students on campus this year, it’s important to start making appointments with academic advisers now to make sure students have time to be advised and register for classes. Biochemistry freshman Jay Abbal said the event would be a good way for new students struggling with classes to learn about University College’s services. “It gives people a chance to ask questions and find out about services that could help them [and] that they didn’t know were there,” he said. Film production freshman Josh Hall met with his academic adviser. He said he’s had a good start to his freshman year and would be interested in going to the event to finish the semester strong. “It would help me learn how to study for tests and quizzes,” he said.

rail or pole. Their locks were cut or otherwise removed. The reports listed bolt and pipe cutters as suspected tools for the thefts. Computer science freshman Sean Kernaghan’s bike was the first stolen. He hadn’t been able to register his bike with the university, which gives the police a way to keep track of what bikes are on campus and whom they belong to. “It happened the first day of classes,” he said. “I didn’t realize it was stolen right away. It took me like five minutes to figure out what happened.” Civil engineering junior Trevor StocktonSalas is the only bike owner so far to have his stolen property recovered. Stockton-Salas was instrumental in the retrieval of his stolen bike. He was walking around campus about two weeks after his bike was stolen and saw someone else riding it. “It was pretty crazy,” he said. “It was almost like out of a movie.” The suspect was moving slowly, and Stockton-Salas was able to track him on foot while calling police. After police arrived and stopped the suspect, Stockton-Salas was taken back to the station as asked to describe his bike without being able to closely inspect the one the suspect had been riding. Key details of the description matched, though the suspect had changed the bicycle seat and added a pouch for carrying small

items. Stockton-Salas’ bike was returned to him and he has agreed to pursue prosecution against the suspect. Assistant Police Chief Rick Gomez said students should use a U-lock to secure their bicycles. U-locks get their name from their shape, and unlike cable or coil locks, they are rigid. He also said students should attach bikes to an immovable objects like racks or poles. He said students also should make sure to secure the lock to a part of the bicycle that is not removable, like the frame. Gomez said any student who sees a crime in progress should call the emergency police number to report the crime. Under no circumstances should a student try to stop a suspect themselves, he said. The suspect may have a weapon or resort to physical violence.

Mavs scratch Bobcats 3-2 A triple-block sealed the deal in the five-set comeback win. BY JESSE DETIENNE The Shorthorn staff

The Shorthorn: Andrew Buckley

Exercise science senior Meredith Bewley has become an experienced triathlete after she began competing in the UTA Triathlon Club during her freshman year and juggles her sport with teaching exercise classes at the Maverick Activities Center at night. Bewley said her most challenging stage of a race is cycling but the feeling she gets from finishing the race motivates her to continue.

Triathlon Club heads to Rockwall for Open Meredith Bewley prepares for her eighth triathlon since she joined three years ago. BY BRIAN NEPHEW The Shorthorn staff

Growing up, Meredith Bewley loved to run track and cross-country but felt she needed a challenge when she arrived at UTA in 2007. Bewley completed her first triathlon in May 2008, and has crossed seven finish lines since. “After crossing my first finish line, I knew this is what I should be doing in life,” she said. “There is no better feeling in the world.” The exercise science major is a member of the UTA Triathlon Club, a club in preparation for the Toyota U.S. Open this Sunday in Rockwall. She’ll be running the Olympic distance, which is a 1.5-kilometer swim, 40-kilometer bike ride, and a 10-kilometer run. Of her seven triathlons, she’s run two Olympic distances and five Sprint distances, which is half the distance of the Olympic. Bewley has a 12-hour course load while working as a fitness instructor at the Maverick Activities Center. She teaches spin classes, group strength, ultimate conditioning and pilates, and has drawn the support from her colleagues. “Her work ethic is motivating because she still has time to train for triathlons around her work and school schedule,” nursing sophomore Justin Pena said. “Meredith and I train a lot together and keep each other focused and motivated.” Three weeks ago, Bewley raised $3,500 so she could compete in the Nation’s Triathlon, benefitting the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society. While it wasn’t her first triathlon, she dedicated the race to her grandmother, who suffers from lymphoma, and said it was by far her most memorable. Former UTA runner Jeff Raines trains and coaches the club during the week. He recently received his master’s degree in exercise physiology in May, and said the main focus is on building a team right now. “Having a group of people from back home or teammates there sup-

WHAT IS A TRIATHLON? A triathlon consists of a swim, bike ride and run in succession. The switch-over time between each event is a transition, and is included in the overall finish time, often described as the “fourth discipline”. Distances Sprint Olympic Half-Iron Full-Iron

porting Meredith during races helps propel her during her individual events,” Raines said. “We are really focusing on team bonding right now.” The club competes in different events throughout the year to prepare for the Collegiate Nationals, which is held in Tuscaloosa, Ala. in April. Bewley has competed in two collegiate nationals, but was unable to finish her first one after developing hypothermia during the swim. “Preparing for the swim is mainly mental for me, it is a tough part,” Bewley said. Bewley said she has a routine of eating as many carbohydrates as possible, while mixing in a small amount of chicken for protein throughout the week. The day before the triathlon she eats a large portion of pasta and bread, and makes sure she is well-hydrated for the event. “If you aren’t mentally prepared by the day of the race you become overwhelmed and nervous,” Bewley said. “A group of us will be going out to the open this weekend to represent UTA.” The UTA Triathlon Club is in its fifth year on campus, and have group workouts on Mondays and Wednesdays at 5 p.m. Monday workouts consist of an hour on the bike and an hour run at River Legacy, and Wednesdays’ 45-minute run at Veterans Park caps off the week. The club finished it’s final workout on Wednesday to rest in anticipation of Sunday.


The Mavericks (9-10, 3-2) took down the defending Southland Conference champion Texas State Bobcats (10-9, 3-2) in thrilling fashion Wednesday night at Texas Hall. Senior Bianca Sauls and juniors Amanda Aguilera and Christy Driscoll combined for a triple block on matchpoint to beat the Bobcats 25-20, 2325, 25-19, 18-25, 15-11, and move a game back for first in the West Division of the SLC. In the comeback fifth match, the Mavericks were 8-7 before junior Tara Frantz recorded her 15th kill to tie it up. They would then go on a 5-2 run to put it out of reach. “It is tough to comeback in the fifth set. You never come out here with the points being handed to you,” head coach Diane Seymour said. “You have to earn them.” Senior Raegan Daniel tied her career-high with 49 assists, and Aguilera’s fourth double-double of the season helped set the pace. She notched 18 kills and 13 digs on the night. Freshman Kendall Whitson had 10 digs, and junior libero Alicia Shaffer led all Mavericks with 26 digs. “We played awesome with lots of digs and defensively we were great,” she said. “We just did what the coaches told us to do and we came from down 8-7 to victorious.” Junior Amber Calhoun and freshman Amari Deardorff led the Bobcats offense with 14 kills each. The first set had the Mavericks winning in style. When the Bobcats crowded the net, Daniel and Sauls started placing the ball in the back court where the defense left open spots on the court. But the Mavericks had nine errors to lose 25-23 in the second set, but fought through nine more in the third to win 25-19. “In set five they came together and started to play excellent,” business junior Jake Pinchback said in the stands after the game. The team hosts Central Arkansas at 2 p.m. this Saturday at Texas Hall. JESSE DETIENNE

Cruz, Molina homers support Lee against Rays Picking up where he left off during in a dazzling October run a year ago, Lee shut down the Tampa Bay Rays while outpitching David Price and leading the Texas Rangers to a 5-1 victory Wednesday in the opening game of the AL playoffs. “I like pitching on a big stage,” Lee said. “Just pitching in the big leagues alone is an honor, but when you get an opportunity to make it to the postseason that’s what it’s all about. That’s what you play all year for. I enjoy it, and I try to have fun with it.” These days, no pitcher is doing it better. Lee matched a postseason best with 10 strikeouts while allowing five hits — just two after escaping a bases-loaded jam in the first inning. During one dominating stretch, he retired 16 of 17 batters before giv-

ing up Ben Zobrist’s homer in the seventh. “It’s not time to sit here and pat myself on the back. We’ve got a lot of work to do,” Lee said. “I feel good about helping us get off to a good start, and hopefully I can continue to do the same. That’s what I expect to do.” Game 2 is Thursday with lefthander C.J. Wilson taking the mound for Texas against right-hander James Shields, who hasn’t won since Aug. 29. Lee improved to 5-0 in six career postseason starts. He went 4-0 with a 1.56 ERA in five starts for the Philadelphia Phillies in 2009, including 2-0 with a 2.81 ERA against the New York Yankees in the World Series.
