SGA hosts 2nd smoke-free campus town hall meeting By MATT DOTRAY STAFF WRITER
Student Government Association hosted its second and final town hall designed to gather student opinions about creating a tobacco or smoke-free campus at 2 p.m. Thursday. Katherine Lindley, a human development and family studies graduate student from Colleyville, was an organizer for the event. She said the purpose of the meeting was to get a good understanding of what students, faculty and staff want in regard to a smoke-
or tobacco-free campus. “I think we got opinions, which is what we wanted to get,” Lindley said. “I think they’re great, regardless of what side they were on. Katherine Lindley The whole goal Graduate student, was to get opinions, and I think event organizer we got a bunch of opinions to go off of now.”

A lot of the discussion during the meetings, she said, involved health effects, individuals’ personal choices, and the current rules Texas Tech has for tobacco use. Gerron Vaughn, a freshman international business major from Odessa, attended both meetings. He said he came to the meetings to make sure the tobacco users, who are the minority, had their voices heard. “At first I was a little skeptical, but I feel like it was beneficial,” Vaughn said after the meeting. “Sometimes I feel like it’s possible for the Board of

When it comes to sexual assault on campus, even one case is too many, Lisa Viator, assistant director of the Student Counseling Center, said. That is why the counseling center is re-opening its newly modeled sexual trauma group this semester for female students who have suffered through such an attack, she said. “Research bears out that group is a really good way of treating individuals with sexual assault histories,” said Ty Stafford, a psychology intern with the center. “It can be really good for them.” Being in a group setting can help an assault survivor feel more at ease, Viator said. “It can make people feel like they’re less alone, less isolated,” she said. “I think it reduces kind of the guilt, blame, selfshaming factor.” The group will include up to eight students, Viator said, and will continue from Feb. 2 until finals week. The group is open for any survivor, Stafford said, no matter at what time the assault occurred. Students who want to participate in the group must first have a pre-grouping interview to determine whether the group would fit their needs, she said. Those who are uncomfortable with an interview can email or call the Student Counseling Center, she said, and the contact information is available on the center’s website. The group has been remodeled to focus around what Viator called psycho-

to allow tobacco on campus, he said the current rule forbidding smoking within 20 feet of building entrances needs to be enforced. Then, he said, SGA members can decide if they want to enact a more severe rule. Claire Tafelski, a senior biology major from Wylie, said a tobacco-free campus is a good idea. She said tobacco users should not be defensive about the possibility of not smoking on campus, but should look at it as a way to create better habits.

By ASHLYN TUBBS Jerod Foster once wanted to attend law school, but like many college students, changed his major after discovering another career path that matched his passion. Those who know him agree this was the right choice to make. Foster’s decision to trade legal paperwork for a camera has gained him national recognition as a distinguished photographer. “I think it’s really cool just all that he has accomplished,” Savannah Leonard, a senior agricultural communications major from Sonora, said, “and just from the two class periods that I’ve had so far with him that he knows so much, but he has pretty much taught himself or taken classes and stuff, and how he was in our shoes when he started out and now he’s where he is.” Foster, who came to Texas Tech in 2002 as an undergraduate student, graduated in 2007 with a master’s degree in agricultural communications and began teaching classes at Tech soon after. He recently completed the Ph.D. program and is currently working on his dissertations. Foster lives a busy life, he said. He is a freelance photographer for many Lubbock newspapers, magazines and advertising agencies: Texas Parks & Wildlife, Texas Highways, The Texas Tribune, The New York Times, Grit, Audubon Magazine, and other publications. “Being a freelance photographer actually makes you probably a lot more available,” he said. “Of course, the competition is pretty high, but it makes you available in a lot of different areas.” His interest in photography peaked in 2004, he said, after he took an intersession photography course in Junction taught by Wyman Meinzer, the state photographer of Texas. “That was the class everybody really kind of wanted to take as a photography student, so I signed up for that, and I was headed to law school the next year and decided to change course and pursue photography a little bit more,” Foster said, “and so that class really was kind of that platform which I jumped off of in the photography industry. It’s worked out since.” Although Foster originally wanted to be a landscape and wildlife photographer, this changed after he learned the value of versatility in photography. “I quickly realized that if I wanted to

I feel like this really helps us get heard.” Vaughn said he does not smoke to relieve stress, but he is opposed to banning cigarettes on campus because it is an activity he enjoys and around which he socializes. “The fact of the matter is that I feel like it’s the choice I made,” he said. “I’m not going to get into the whole ‘Tech’s taking our rights,’ but it’s the choice I made, and I don’t feel like it’s Tech’s responsibility to change my habits.” Before Tech decides whether or not
education, which helps survivors understand what symptoms they might expect to experience after an assault. According to the center’s website, some symptoms might include posttraumatic stress disorder, difficulty sleeping, mood swings, anxiety and feelings of helplessness. The website also reports that sexual assault happens to one in four women and one in 33 men, and that an assault occurs every two minutes. More than half of those attacks go unreported, Stafford said. “People respond in different ways,” he said, “and sometimes, right there in the immediate part of it, it’s really tough to report it to someone to work on it in counseling.” What is important is that students know that they have somewhere to go if they feel they need or want to, he said. If a person has been assaulted, it is vital for them to call the police and go to the emergency room, he said. Other resources that are available include the Lubbock Rape Crisis Center, Stafford said, a city-based organization designed to aid survivors. The crisis center also has trained nurses, called sexual assault nurse examiners, who will come and assist the survivor through the emergency room process, he said. If a student needs to reach the Lubbock Rape Crisis Center, its hotline is (806) 763-7273, and its phone number is (806) 763-3232. ➤➤email@example.com

work in this industry, that I needed to be a little bit more than just a landscape photographer,” he said, “and so I started taking on assignments that had me photographing people, had me photographing people doing things, feature stories that you’d find in many different publications other than landscapes.” After forming a relationship with Meinzer, Foster said he began to assist him during photography shoots and projects. They formed a business together named Badlands Design and Production, a publishing house that focuses on high-end coffee table photography books shot by Meinzer focused mostly on Texas culture and issues. “It’s a very, very small outfit,” he said. “I do all the design work, I do all the editing for it, so the production side of the company is on me.” Badlands Design and Production

publishes up to two books a year. The first book released was titled “Inspiration Texas Style,” which Foster said is a book of quotes from notable Texans paired with Meinzer’s photography. Others include “Working Dogs of Texas,” “South Plains Bison — Resurrection of the Lost Texas Herd,” and Badlands’ most recent release, “Charles Goodnight: A Man For All Ages.” “It’s a really neat organization,” he said. “We’re fortunate to be a really wellestablished organization just because of the types of books we’re putting out and who our photographers and who our authors are.” In 2011, Foster wrote a book of his own titled “Storytellers: A Photographer’s Guide to Developing Themes and Creating Stories with Pictures.”

US: NKorea nuke test plan ‘provocative’ WASHINGTON (AP) — North Korea’s plan to conduct a third nuclear test is “needlessly provocative” and will only increase its isolation, the White House said Thursday, as the U.S. expanded its financial sanctions against the north Asian country. Defense Secretary Leon Panetta said he’s seen no outward sign that North Korea will follow through soon on its plan to conduct a test — following its underground atomic explosions in 2006 and 2009. But that doesn’t mean preparations aren’t under way. “They have the capability, frankly, to conduct these tests in a way that
make it very difficult to determine whether or not they are doing it,” Panetta told reporters. North Korea’s National Defense Commission said Thursday a nuclear test was part of “upcoming” action directed against the U.S. but did not say exactly when or where it would take place. The commission, led by leader Kim Jong Un, also made clear that its long-range rockets are designed to carry warheads aimed at striking the United States. The North has previously said its launches are for a peaceful space program. Pyongyang’s statement came two days after the U.N. Security Council
condemned its December launch of a satellite atop a long-range rocket for violating a ban on ballistic missile activity. The council, with the support of the North’s only major ally, China, also tightened sanctions. “North Korea’s statement is needlessly provocative and a test would be a significant violation of United Nations Security Council resolutions,” White House spokesman Carney told reporters. “Further provocation would only increase Pyongyang’s isolation, and its continued focus on its nuclear and missile program is doing nothing to help the North Korean people.”
Carney said the council decision to tighten sanctions would impede the growth of weapons of mass destruction programs in North Korea. He said the U.S. would be taking additional steps. The government later designated as “trade” several entities said to be involved in missile development. Carney noted the council’s warning to take further action in the event of a further launch or nuclear test. “We judge North Korea by its actions, and provocations like these are significant violations and we act accordingly,” Carney said.
American Mumbai plotter sentenced to 35 years CHICAGO (AP) — Minutes before an American was sentenced to 35 years in prison for helping plan a deadly attack on Mumbai, India, one of his victims tearfully pleaded for a harsh punishment despite the terrorist plotter’s widespread cooperation with U.S. investigators following his arrest. David Coleman Headley, 52, shifted uncomfortably in a gray tracksuit and kept his eyes fixed on the Chicago courtroom floor Thursday as he listened to the American children’s author describe the violent chaos during her 2008 vacation to India. Bullets flew past her cheek and panicked diners dived under tables as
gunmen burst into a hotel restaurant then walked around executing people one by one, recalled Linda Ragsdale, at times almost shouting as she stood just a few feet from Headley during the sentencing hearing. More than 160 people died in the attack, including children. “I know the sweet sickening smell of gunfire and blood,” said Ragsdale, 53, of Nashville, Tenn., who was shot through the back — the bullet passing along her spine and then out her thigh. “I know what a bullet can do to every part of the human body ... These are things I never needed to know, never needed to experience.”
Others victimized by the attack that has been called India’s 9/11 said they were disturbed and upset Headley did not get the maximum life sentence he faced. With credit for good behavior, he could walk out of prison before he turns 80. “He lost his right to live life as a free man. He doesn’t deserve to be let out. He gave up that right when he played a role in the attack,” said Kia Scherr, whose husband Alan Scherr and 13-year-old daughter, Naomi, were at the same table as Ragsdale and died. It was prosecutors who pressed for leniency, saying they wanted Headley
to get no more than 35 years as credit for his almost immediate cooperation after his 2009 arrest and providing intelligence about terror networks, including the Pakistani-based group that mounted the attack. Rewarding Headley with the hope of at least a few years of freedom, the said, would encourage future suspects in terrorist cases to spill their secrets. A somber Judge Harry Leinenweber sounded reluctant about imposing the lesser sentence, saying the Mumbai assault was so unfathomable and terrifying that, “perhaps the lucky ones were the ones who didn’t survive.”
US hit by new stomach bug spreading around globe NEW YORK (AP) — A new strain of stomach bug sweeping the globe is taking over in the U.S., health officials say. Since September, more than 140 outbreaks in the U.S. have been caused by the new Sydney strain of norovirus. It may not be unusually dangerous; some scientists don’t think it is. But it is different, and many people might not be able to fight off its gut-wrenching effects. Clearly, it’s having an impact. The new strain is making people sick in Japan, Western Europe, and other parts of the world. It was first identified last year in Australia and called the Sydney strain. In the U.S., it is now accounting for about 60 percent of norovirus outbreaks, according to report released Thursday by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. Norovirus — once known as Norwalk virus — is highly contagious and often spreads in places like schools, cruise ships and nursing homes, especially during the winter.
Last month, 220 people on the Queen Mary II were stricken during a Caribbean cruise. Sometimes mistakenly called stomach flu, the virus causes bouts of vomiting and diarrhea for a few days. Every two or three years, a new strain evolves — the last was in 2009. The Sydney strain’s appearance has coincided with a spike in influenza, perhaps contributing to the perception that this is a particularly bad flu season in the U.S. Ian Goodfellow, a prominent researcher at England’s University of Cambridge, calls norovirus ‘the Ferrari of viruses’ for the speed at which it passes through a large group of people. “It can sweep through an environment very, very quickly. You can be feeling quite fine one minute and within several hours suffer continuous vomiting and diarrhea,” he said. Health officials have grown better at detecting new strains and figuring out which one is the culprit. They now know that norovirus is also the most common cause of food poisoning
in the U.S. It’s spread by infected food handlers who don’t do a good job washing their hands after using the bathroom. But unlike salmonella and other foodborne illnesses, norovirus can also spread in the air, through droplets that fly when a sick person vomits. “It’s a headache” to try to control, said Dr. John Crane, a University of Buffalo infectious disease specialist who had to deal with a norovirus outbreak in a hospital ward a couple of years ago. Each year, noroviruses cause an estimated 21 million illnesses and 800 deaths, the CDC says. For those infected, there’s really no medicine. They just have to ride it out for the day or two of severe symptoms, and guard against dehydration, experts said. The illness even got the attention of comedian Stephen Colbert, who this week tweeted: “Remember, if you’re in public and have the winter vomiting bug, be polite and vomit into your elbow.”

“I think people are getting too defensive, like it’s taking away your right,” she said, “but taking away people’s right to clean air is also how people could look at it.” One of Tech’s responsibilities is to make sure its students are prepared once they graduate, she said, and if students graduate with bad habits, they will not set a good example. A ban on smoking will eventually lead to a healthier campus, she said. After the town hall meeting, Lindley said the opinions of the students led to different ideas. Many of the discussions were about the current regulations, she said, and she is going to try to find ways to enforce them and make them better. An issue with the current rule, she said, is the trash cans for cigarettes are too close to the doors, although there is no smoking within 20 feet of the entrance. Lindley said she is going to try to meet with the Office of Facilities Planning and Construction to ensure that ashtrays are outside of a 20-foot radius from building entrances.

Alleged drug cartel manager gets 7 years in prison BROWNSVILLE (AP) — An alleged Mexican drug cartel manager who authorities say stayed involved in cartel business right up until his conviction through coded phone conversations from a U.S. jail was sentenced Thursday to seven years in prison on immigration and weapon charges. Jose Luis Zuniga Hernandez, known as “El Wicho,” managed Gulf cartel operations in Matamoros, Mexico, just across the Rio Grande from Brownsville before fleeing to the U.S. to escape enemies, federal authorities said. When arrested near the border in 2011, Zuniga was carrying more than $36,000, cocaine and a gold-plated handgun engraved with his nickname. Zuniga, 44, pleaded guilty earlier this month to illegal re-entry and

being an illegal immigrant possessing a firearm. He was sentenced in Brownsville. U.S. District Judge Andrew Hanen explained that he would not lengthen Zuniga’s sentence for his involvement in the cartel, because he wasn’t formally charged with those crimes. But the judge noted Zuniga’s prior criminal history in the U.S. and the fact that he had a gun, cash and cocaine when arrested, which he said made Zuniga “a serious threat to the well-being of the citizens of Texas.” Zuniga is the latest in a string of Gulf cartel bosses who were arrested on both sides of the border in the past year. Still, the U.S. Border Patrol’s Rio Grande Valley sector — which guards the section of border fronting the Gulf cartel’s territory
— has seized nearly 250,000 pounds of marijuana so far this fiscal year. In brief comments in Spanish, Zuniga asked for forgiveness from his family, Hanen and people he hurt. Zuniga denied in court that he was the man behind “El Wicho” and other nicknames, though authorities say he proudly explained their origins in the days following his arrest. U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement special agent Luis Flores testified Thursday that Zuniga had been involved in drug smuggling since at least 1990, when he was convicted in a drug conspiracy that included more than a ton of marijuana. Zuniga told authorities that he did not start working directly for the Gulf cartel until late 2002 or early 2003.

Tech students must prepare for every scenario During training for my columnist position, a police officer spoke to us about how to handle a mass shooter situation. During this meeting we were told, to my horror, police officers have no legal obligation to protect us. As was explained to us by Lt. Eric Williams, officers act instead as a deterrent and as friction between the assailant and the victim to diffuse the situation, rather than a preventive measure. It has been ruled in various cases that police do not have a constitutional duty to protect a person from harm. I certainly hope the police and security on campus are of a different mindset. I understand why the courts rule this. If it were their duty, they might be held liable for any harm inflicted upon a victim.
Rocio Rodriguez However, that is why the Good Samaritan Act exists, to protect those with the ability to render medical aid, like me, a CPRcertified citizen. In Texas we are obligated to help somebody who requires medical aid or services because we have the knowledge and ability to help them, but are not held liable for damages for injury (like broken ribs) or death (because of a lack of full medical knowledge) to the incapacitated person as a result of the aid. What bothered me most, the
utter lack of a sense of duty and obligation notwithstanding, is the officer telling the audience if the officer does not see anything of danger occurring, they will not act. I will give them some credit and expect our campus police to want to help and protect us. But the fact of the matter is they have no obligation to answer our phone calls or even respond to them, such as in the case of Hartzler v. City of San Jose. A woman called the police on multiple occasions before being threatened and eventually murdered by her husband. We could look to the Warren v. District of Columbia case as another example. Two women in a townhouse phoned the police when they heard their roommate being
attacked by an intruder. The police checked the perimeter for a total of five minutes and left, were called again and after half an hour the screams had quieted. The two women, thinking the police had arrived, went downstairs and for the next 14 hours the three women were held captive, raped, robbed, beaten and forced to commit sexual acts upon each other. The court ruled that it is a “fundamental principle of American law that a government and its agents are under no general duty to provide public services, such as police protection, to any individual citizen,” despite the sheer negligence of the police officers and those answering the phone calls. However, Williams did bring up an issue that I believe is some-
thing we should keep in mind. We have a “learned helplessness,” which makes us vulnerable and insecure of our own abilities to defend ourselves. When those that are supposedly here to protect and serve are not protecting and serving, we should keep in mind that we are in charge of our own lives. As dictated by Williams in the situation of an active shooter, we need to remember three concepts: get out, hide, or if need be, take out the intruder. But here is another thought: How is the Texas Tech administration going to prepare students, faculty and staff against an active shooter, or really, any danger? This is the first time I have received training regarding active shooters and I am not even sure if the advisers requested it or if
it is a new requirement for those on the Tech payroll. I have not received this kind of training for my other campus jobs. We have our cellphones to access emails, texts and phone calls, but when danger is present and phones are silent, when do we know when the coast is clear? Do we have an emergency PA system? I think it would be great for Tech to provide us with a bulletin, training, talk, or event during the school year and Red Raider Orientation to prepare us for a dangerous situation such as an active shooter. As a concerned student, I would like to feel as safe as possible within my academic home. Rodriguez is a junior microbiology major from Brownsville. ➤➤ email@example.com

The Stewart-Colbert factor proves to be an unlikely, effective news source Millions of Americans watch them. They have been compared to Murrow and Cronkite, Shakespearian fools, and even Socrates. Their guests have included world leaders, celebrities, leading scientists, and everything in between. But just who and what are Jon Stewart and Stephen Colbert: 21st century journalists or, as they claim, mere comedians? The answer is not entirely clear-cut, as the line between comedy and journalism has blurred. Nonetheless, their position has given them a unique ability to raise issues and call out politicians in ways that mainstream journalists will not. They should embrace this power and the responsibility that comes with it. Stewart defines himself as “a comedian” and The Daily Show with Jon Stewart as “fake news.” In an interview on Meet the Press, Colbert described his character on The Colbert Report as “an ac-
tive idiot.” However, some have argued that the Stewart-Colbert brand of “fake news” can actually be substantive and impactful. Their shows frequently highlight and raise awareness of serious issues, including some that may not receive sufficient attention from politicians and the mainstream media. For instance, while many politicians decline to talk seriously about climate change, Colbert and Stewart have invited leading scientists to discuss the issue. Indeed, the Project for Excellence in Journalism found that, in 2007, The Daily Show “devoted a greater percentage of its news to science/ technology and environmental stories than did the mainstream news media.” Shortly after Colbert invited astrophysicist Neil de Grasse Tyson on the show to criticize proposed cuts to NASA’s manned space program, President Obama, coincidentally or not, backtracked on the proposed cuts. Similarly, Stewart repeatedly lambasted Congress for holding up

benefits for 9/11 First Responders (the “Zadroga Act”), increasing coverage of the issue and arguably shaming Congress into eventually passing the bill. Meanwhile, by creating his own Super PAC, Colbert called attention to the issue of campaign finance and what he calls the “politico-industrial complex,” winning a Peabody Award for his efforts. The substantive content of these shows has not been lost on viewers. While Stewart and Colbert insist that they are not newsmen, some, especially younger viewers, view the shows as legitimate news sources. A 2004 Pew study found that shows like The Daily Show rivaled traditional broadcast news as sources of campaign information for young adults. Meanwhile, an Indiana University study found that The Daily Show’s coverage of the 2004 campaign was as substantive as network news. Furthermore, a 2007 Pew survey found that regular viewers of Stewart’s and Colbert’s shows were much better informed

than the national average and were even better informed than those who rely on traditional news outlets. The appeal of Stewart and Colbert may be largely driven by deep frustration with current political reality. Timothy McCarthy, Director of the Kennedy School’s Carr Center for Human Rights Policy and a cultural historian, told the HPR that The Daily Show and The Colbert Report have become “place[s] where people would go to get their news because our politics ha[s] become so absurd and so… superficial and really all about a series of performances” that are themselves much like entertainment. Indeed, when asked if the shows ever push the envelope and become offensive, Stewart himself told Maureen Dowd, “I don’t understand how anyone can consider jokes about this stuff worse than the reality of it.” Arguably, an advantage Stewart and Colbert have over mainstream journalists is that, like the jesters and Shakespearian fools of old,
they occupy a position outside the societal, or in this case, journalistic, mainstream from which they can tear into politicians and mainstream journalists without fear of pushback or accusations of bias. According to Paul Cantor, a culture critic and visiting professor of government at Harvard, they “share with a venerable satirical tradition,” a willingness and license to “speak truth to power.” Cantor told the HPR that he has been “struck by how many times particularly Stewart has brought up an issue that the mainstream media refused to deal with.” Clearly, Stewart takes on powerful people and weighty issues, perhaps surprising for a self-described comedian. According to McCarthy, however, “we are in a political and cultural moment where the distinction between entertainment and political journalism is being blurred.” He traces this blurring of the line between journalism and entertainment to the 1996 emergence of Fox News and MSNBC, which offer a Copyright © 2013 Texas Tech University Student Media/The Daily Toreador.

mix of news coverage, “explicitly partisan” commentary and entertainment segments like Chris Matthews’ “Hardball Sideshow” and Bill O’Reilly’s “Dumbest Things of the Week.” McCarthy believes that the emergence of Stewart and Colbert “even further complicates and blurs those lines of distinction” between journalism and entertainment. At times, Stewart and Colbert have even flirted with activism, though with mixed results. Their joint “Rally to Restore Sanity and/or Fear” received less-thanglowing reviews. McCarthy says that he attended the rally but left early, finding it to be “politically bankrupt” and a tremendous missed opportunity to “cross over into a serious political space while bringing all the humor and absurdity.” Meanwhile, Colbert acknowledged on Meet the Press that “everyone was critical of” his testimony before a Congressional subcommittee, which was intended to shine a light on the plight of immigrant farm workers.

“There’s a lot of how-to books out there that can tell you all about pushing the buttons on your camera, and I actually just got through writing one of those,” he said, “but Storytellers was all about why those functions matter, why we operate in a certain way with the camera to produce compelling, storytelling images.” Foster said an employee of his publisher, Peachpit/New Riders, contacted Foster after noticing the blog he writes about educating the photographic storyteller. “It was just a way for me, as a photographer and as a business owner, to push my name out there and also to share a little bit of what I was doing,” he said.
“It’s pretty typical among photographers for us to have websites and for us to have blogs to kind of keep people apprised of what we’re doing, whether those are editors or whether they’re fans of the work or what not.” Foster finished his second book Jan. 18, a beginner’s photography book about how to operate a new Sony camera, which was released last November. He said it took him two months to write and shoot pictures for the book. “It was very quick,” he said. “It kind of kept me busy during the holiday break, but it’s done finally, and it will be out in March.” He is not stopping there. Foster also will begin a third book in May about photographic color, sharing his knowledge and experience both inside and outside his classrooms. “I was always impressed with
my professors in college that really were out there practicing what they were teaching in class,” he said. “I hope that to the students that I teach that I’m the exact same way because outside of academia, I’m a business owner, and I’m constantly on shoots and working for other clients, and I think hopefully that provides a little bit more credibility for me.” Foster took the words right out of Alex Olivares’ mouth, a senior electronic media and communications major from Austin. Olivares is taking two classes taught by Foster this semester. “If he’s working for, like, The New York Times, and he’s freelancing for, like, such big newspapers,” he said, “then you know he’s a (professional) and he knows what he’s talking about, so it just makes everything (he says) more credible.”
With Foster teaching in the classroom, he is an inspiration and role model to students such as Taylor Word, a junior agricultural communications major from Austin. “Photography is one of my main interests,” she said, “and the fact that he was an (agricultural communications) major, and he has taken photography to this level really makes me think, ‘Well, I want to learn that much, and I want to be as good as he is.’” Working within a competitive field, Foster shared his secrets to successfully making a name for himself to Tech students, whose desks he sat in 11 years ago. “Create opportunities,” he said. “Don’t always rely on one to fall on your lap. You have to not only seek out opportunities that may exist, but also work.” ➤➤email@example.com

Reader sues Armstrong over drug-use denial in books
SAN FRANCISCO (AP) — An aide to former Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger said he was so taken by Lance Armstrong’s first memoir of battling back from cancer to win the Tour de France multiple times that he immediately read it “cover to cover” and recommended it to several friends. Now he wants his money back — and then some. Rob Stutzman and several others who bought Armstrong’s “It’s Not About The Bike” and “Every Second Counts” have filed a lawsuit in Sacramento federal court. It alleges Armstrong duped them into believing the books were inspirational true accounts of the cyclist’s accomplishments done without performanceenhancing drugs. The lawsuit accuses Armstrong and the books’ publishers of committing fraud, false advertising and other wrongdoing for publishing the cyclist’s vehement denials that he wasn’t a cheat. Armstrong admitted to cheating throughout his career in a televised interview last week. His lawyer Tim Herman didn’t immediately respond to inquiries for comment Thursday. The lawsuit seeks class-action
status on behalf of all readers who felt misled by Armstrong’s denials of drug use in “It’s Not About The Bike,” published in 2000, and “Every Second Counts,” published three years later. “Although Stutzman does not buy or read many books, he found Armstrong’s book incredibly compelling and recommended the book to several friends,” the lawsuit stated. The lawsuit filed Tuesday says Stutzman met Armstrong when the cyclist visited with Schwarzenegger. “At that time, Stutzman thanked Defendant Armstrong for writing his book and told him it was very inspiring and that he had recommended it to friends who were fighting cancer,” the suit says. “In response, Armstrong thanked Stutzman.” At least two authors have faced similar lawsuits when their supposed works of nonfiction were alleged to contain fabrications. James Frey, author of “A Million Little Pieces,” and his publisher settled a class-action lawsuit in 2006 alleging he made up parts of his bestselling memoir by offering to refund the cost of the book.

Southfork Ranch draws ‘Dallas’ fans old, new PARKER (AP) — The white two-story home with stately pillars overlooking a green Texas pasture where longhorns roam is instantly recognizable: This is the power seat of television’s famous Ewing family. Tourists from around the world have been flocking to Southfork Ranch since the early years of the classic series “Dallas,” which ran from 1978 to 1991, and the ranch is only getting more popular. With the premiere last June of a new “Dallas” series, the number of visitors at Southfork has doubled from 150,000 annually to more than 300,000, according to Jim Gomes, general manager of the Southfork Ranch & Hotel and vice president of Forever Resorts, which owns the property. “We are obviously thrilled the new fans love Southfork as much as the original fans of ‘Dallas,’” said Gomes. The new show starts its second season Monday on the TNT cable channel. The recent death of Larry Hagman, who starred as conniving Texas oilman J.R. Ewing in both the original series and the new show, has also spurred fans to visit. The 340-acre (138-hectare) ranch is located about 25 miles (40 kilometers) northeast of downtown Dallas in the suburb of Parker. Patrick Duffy, who has returned to the role of J.R.’s brother Bobby, said that the biggest changes since he first filmed on the ranch are new tourist-related buildings and event facilities for weddings and meetings, along with the buildup of the surrounding town, including housing additions and a high school. But any time he’s back at Southfork, it doesn’t take long for the magic
to take over. “You drive down that road and you look across this pasture and there’s the front of Southfork and it looks like the opening credits of the show and I know why people love it so much,” Duffy said. Duffy remembers a time when fans watching them film consisted of small groups of 20 to 30 people. Those crowds grew to the hundreds as the “Who Shot J.R.?” mania built in 1980 when a cliffhanger left fans
in suspense. The answer came on Nov. 21, 1980, when the shooter was revealed to be Kristin — J.R.’s vengeful mistress, who was also his sister-inlaw — in an episode that was seen by more people than any TV program in history until that time. When the series first began filming at Southfork, the family that built the house in 1970 still lived there. And while they hosted tourists as the show’s popularity grew, it didn’t
become an official tourist attraction and event location until 1985 after they sold it. Forever Resorts bought Southfork in 1992. Most of the shooting for the original series was done in Los Angeles, though some of it was filmed in Texas, but the new show is being filmed in the Dallas area — with locations ranging from the flagship Neiman Marcus downtown to the gleaming Cowboys Stadium.

Tech women’s tennis team prepared for No. 29 Rice STAFF WRITER
After defeating Denver 6-1 this past weekend, the No. 21 Texas Tech women’s tennis team will face No. 29 Rice in the first round of the ITA Kickoff weekend in Waco. With a win against Denver and the season fully under way, senior Sandra Dynka said she knows the team must focus to take on Rice. “It was really fun to get a win off the back,” she said. “It was a little bit of an easier team than we are going to play this weekend, so we definitely need to stay focused during practice this week.” Tech coach Todd Petty was pleased with how the Lady Raiders performed against Denver. “I thought we played really well, especially in the doubles,” Petty said. “I didn’t see many signs of nerves at the very beginning. We had some trouble fin-
ishing out some sets and matches, but we were able to get over that. It was definitely a tough match to begin the year with.” Petty said he was surprised at the performance of junior Kenna Kilgo this past weekend. “Kenna Kilgo played amazing at number two,” he said. “She has earned her way up the ladder. She won 6-1, or 6-0, against a very good player, and she handles herself very well.” The Lady Raiders had to play through adversity against Denver, which made the score seem misleading, Petty said. “We had a lot of 6-4, 7-5 type sets,” Petty said. “We were up big in a lot of those sets, and let them kind of claw their way back into it. So, 6-1 is very deceiving. It was a lot closer than that for sure.” During the offseason, the Lady Raiders have worked hard, and Dynka said she believes it pays off. “We really work hard in the

offseason,” Dynka said. “I mean, we did have a few struggles, but I think that at the end of the day, the hard work really did pay off. I think that is what makes this team who we are.” Dynka said the goals during the match this weekend are not much of an apprehension for her. “I just want to have fun, honestly,” she said. “It’s my senior year, and I think that I kind of put a lot of pressure on myself. (I need to) just remember that I love the game.” Petty said he wants a win to come out of the rounds in Waco. He said he knows of the challenges they are facing and what pressure the Owls will bring. “We want to go in and win both (rounds), and make it to the Sweet 16 and advance in the National Indoors,” Petty said. “If we can get by this first round against Rice, that will be a huge win in our pocket because Rice was a Sweet 16 team last year.

MEMPHIS, Tenn. (AP) — A team meeting didn’t help stop the losing, and this season just keeps spinning away from the Lakers. Darrell Arthur scored a season-high 20 points and Mike Conley added 19 as the Memphis Grizzlies beat Los Angeles 10693 Wednesday night, handing the Lakers their fourth straight loss and 10th in 12 games. “I do think they play as hard as they can play, and that’s what’s scary,” coach Mike D’Antoni said of his Lakers, who are now 2-10 in January. “I mean, I don’t know how we can play harder or blame something else. We just didn’t play well.” Kobe Bryant said he felt comfortable with what he said in a team meeting before the morning shootaround. He said he doesn’t know if his message

Pau Gasol, coming off the bench again, believes defense remains the Lakers’ biggest problem. “We make these teams look a lot better offensively than they really are,” the Lakers forward said. “That’s something that’s pretty negative. Pretty alarming.” The Grizzlies had a short bench after trading three players to the Cavaliers on Tuesday, only getting Jon Leuer back in a move freeing up Memphis from the luxury tax. But the paperwork hadn’t cleared on the physicals of the trio going to Cleveland in time to have Leuer available against the Lakers. Then Marc Gasol, Randolph, Hamed Haddadi and Jerryd Bayless all picked up two fouls each in the first quarter. That forced Hollins to rotate his Grizzlies to keep them fresh, and rookie Tony Wroten, who has gotten most of his playing time in the D-League in Reno this season, had a career-best nine points by halftime. “When we are faced with adversity, we show that we can win,” Allen said. “When adversity comes, when guys get hurt, we pull together.” The Lakers started quickly, scoring the first six points of the game and forced four turnovers. They looked like they had listened to D’Antoni’s plea for better defense. But they last led 30-28 on a 15-footer by Pau Gasol with 9 minutes left in the second quarter. Conley answered with a 9-foot runner to tie it up, and that started a 22-5 run as the Grizzlies took the lead for good. Conley capped the spurt with a fast-break layup with 4:25 left in the first half for a 50-35 lead. Both teams shot better than 50 percent in the first half, but the Grizzlies led 59-50 at halftime. They led by as much as 21 in the second half and finished with a 27-3 edge on second-chance points. They outrebounded the Lakers 52-34, including 16 offensive rebounds. “It’s just the same thing over again,” Lakers forward Earl Clark said. “We broke down defensively. They went on a run, and we continue to just go downhill.” Meanwhile, Howard was 0 of 4 from the floor and headed to the locker room with 2:21 left in the first half, flexing his right shoulder. He had been probable with a torn labrum and had a very physical first half against Gasol and Haddadi. The Lakers got within 61-58 on a 14-footer by Bryant with 8:57 left in the third. That was as close as they would get as their woes worsened when Steve Nash, who came in a perfect 26 of 26 at the free throw line this season, missed his second attempt of the night with 3:07 left in the third.

Texas Tech frosh guard earns starting role LUBBOCK (AP) — Texas Tech freshman Dusty Hannahs learned long ago that when he is was not practicing somebody else probably was. That notion has driven the 19-year-old since his youth growing up in Arkansas. In the family’s Little Rock backyard, his father would chase rebounds so Hannah could repeatedly put up more shots. In seventh grade, he finagled a key to the school gym and spent hours practicing his shot. High school? Different key, same routine. “Once that happened it was over,” said Hannahs, who has started the past nine games and is averaging 6.5 points a game. “I wanted to live there.” Now, long after Red Raiders fans leave the arena or practice is over, Hannahs lingers. Sometimes under dimmed lights with only the janitorial staff as company. That time has paid off. After 18 or fewer minutes in Texas Tech’s first eight games Hannahs earned a starting role. He has become the go-to guy from beyond the arc, hitting 26 of 66 to lead the team. He is also perfect from the free throw line (9-9) and notched a season-high 21 points in his second start, a win over
North Carolina A&T. He hit seven of his 12 shots, including half of his eight 3s. “And he’ll get better as time goes on when he learns how to hunt his shot,” interim coach Chris Walker said. The 6-4, 210-pounder’s presence has helped the Red Raiders, who despite struggling have already won more conference games than all of last season under coach Billy Gillispie. He resigned in September for medical reasons after getting just one Big 12 victory and matching a school record for the most losses in a single season (23) in his lone year in Lubbock. The Red Raiders (9-8, 2-4 Big 12) halted a four-game skid on Wednesday night when they beat Iowa State 56-51. On Saturday, they travel to Texas and have a shot at beating the struggling Longhorns, who are winless in Big 12 play. Walker said Hannahs’ work ethic in shooting is “light years” ahead of his teammates. But there are areas where he needs improvement, like rebounding and defense. “If you’re not making 3s, what other value do you bring to the team?” Walker said. “He’s not going to be a defensive stopper. That’s not his role on the

team. I just have to continuously challenge him to be a more wellrounded player.” Hannahs understands his shortcomings and is working to become better on defense. His confidence is growing each week, he said. “I just always was getting by but I needed to learn principles,” Hannahs said. “I’ve come such
a long way with the help of the coaches. They’re just so good at helping me, letting me know what I’m doing wrong and right.” Redshirt junior Jaye Crockett, the team’s leading scorer (13.1 points per game) and its sixth man, has been impressed by Hannahs and the energy he always brings. When the freshman is on the floor and opponents must tend
to his shooting prowess, it opens up lanes inside for teammates, he said. Then there’s the extra time Crockett sees Hannahs put in. “Dusty’s in the gym all the time,” he said. “He’s one of the reasons why I started getting in the gym a lot just trying to work on my game because I’ve seen a freshman come and his work ethic
and all, I was like, ‘maybe I need to change something.’” Hannahs said he thinks the Red Raiders are finding their stride. “We’re just going to keep working,” he said. “We all know what we have and once we come together, which is what we feel we are, we’re the only people who can stop us.”

NEW YORK (AP) — Tim Duncan was selected to his 14th All-Star game, Spurs teammate Tony Parker is joining him, and the Chicago Bulls also had two reserves chosen Thursday for next month’s game in Houston. Joakim Noah and Luol Deng were picked from the Bulls, who have stayed in the thick of the Eastern Conference playoff race despite the season-long absence of point guard Derrick Rose. Noah is one of five firsttime All-Stars for the East, along with New York’s Tyson Chandler, Indiana’s Paul George, Cleveland’s Kyrie Irving, and Philadelphia’s Jrue Holiday.

With centers Chandler and Noah, East coaches passed on Brooklyn’s Brook Lopez, the leading scorer for a resurgent team that is right behind the Knicks for the Atlantic Division lead. Perennial All-Stars Deron Williams and Joe Johnson of the Nets also missed out, as did Boston’s Paul Pierce. Lee gave the Warriors their first All-Star since Latrell Sprewell in 1997, but coach Mark Jackson and his team hoped for more. However, Stephen Curry wasn’t selected despite averaging 20.9 points — the league’s eighth-leading scorer and the highest one who won’t be in Houston for the Feb. 17 showcase.

scored 16 points for the Thunder, who blew an eight-point lead in the fourth quarter a night after running away with a win at the Los Angeles Clippers. Oklahoma City (33-10) had won seven of eight but still remains at the top of the NBA standings. “We could have been much better defensively,” Thunder coach Scott Brooks said. “They made a lot of plays inside the paint but they got a lot of points off of our turnovers, too. We didn’t make enough plays down the stretch and they did. They deserved to win this game.” Once again, the Warriors showed they’re no fluke out West this season. Lee found Carl Landry slicing through the lane for a dunk, Klay Thompson hit a running hook as part of his 19 points and Landry put back his own miss to give Golden State a 97-94 lead with 2:25 remaining.

David Lee had 22 points and 12 rebounds, helped Golden State outrebound Oklahoma City’s lengthy frontline 40-39 and made some big plays late. The Warriors, with one playoff appearance since 1994, are 26-15 and own the fifth-best record in the Western Conference with another 41 games to play. “I’m sure we’re surprising people,” Curry said. Even Jackson, who doubles as a preacher, said he always had faith his team could win but “I get my praise and worship on because I didn’t think it’d be this good,” especially with center Andrew Bogut still sidelined indefinitely while recovering from left ankle surgery. Durant had 33 points, nine assists and five rebounds, and Kevin Martin

OAKLAND, Calif. (AP) — Stephen Curry banked in an off-balance shot while getting fouled by Russell Westbrook to start a three-point play, falling to his knees and shaking his shoulders to the sellout crowd. Not quite the shimmy Mark Jackson displayed during his playing days — still plenty good enough to please the Golden State coach. Curry had 31 points and seven assists, and the Warriors punctuated the season’s midpoint by outlasting the NBA-best Oklahoma City Thunder 104-99 in style Wednesday night. “The way he’s playing,” Jackson said, “dance all you want.” On the eve of the announcement for All-Star reserves, Golden State’s top two candidates made a lasting impression. Curry matched Kevin Durant’s spectacular scores all game, stole a pass from the Thunder’s leading man
