THE NEW TEXAS Tech baseball coach Tim Tadlock talks during the news conference announcing his new lead role on Friday at Rip Griffin Park. Tadlock was the interim head coach after Dan Spencer was let go last month.

By KASSIDY KETRON editor-in-Chief

Tim Tadlock, who formally was named the ninth head coach of the Texas Tech baseball program Friday, said the first thing he plans to do as head coach is to recruit. “We have to get in front of people, try to get some players on campus and try to get things done,” he said. “I think everybody in the room knows enough about baseball to know that it all starts out there on that bump. Momentum starts right there, it starts and ends right there and, obviously, we are going to try to put some pieces right there.” Tadlock was named interim head coach on May 21 after the firing of Dan Spencer. Athletic director Kirby Hocutt said since Spencer was fired they spent time looking at coaches in all levels of collegiate baseball, but decided Tadlock was the best man for the job. “Tim Tadlock is known as one of the nation’s best college recruiters,” Hocutt said. “Tim Tadlock is known

as one of the nation’s best teachers of the game, and Tim Tadlock is known as a coach that knows the state of Texas as well as, or better, than anyone else in this profession.” Tadlock said the first thing he does when recruiting is to show the potential player the facilities, introduce them to people and to let them know what they will get out of the program. He said head basketball coach Billy Gillispie and head football coach Tommy Tuberville would agree that recruiting starts with one, simple moment. “Those guys will tell you,” he said, “it all starts with being in the moment when you talk about sports. “And there is no doubt in practice you better be developing some players, you better be working on some fundamentals — but when the game starts you want to get them to a point where they can trust what they are doing, and that has been a simple fundamental thing.” TADLOCK continued on Pg. 2 ➤➤

Council removes city from dog park contest By PHILIP WHEAT Staff Writer

There are 72 parks in Lubbock, according to Lubbock’s Parks and Recreations website, with attractions like waterfalls, jogging tracks and even remotecontrolled airplane fields — but there are no dog parks. Laura Mata, a dog-rights activist, said she was tired of being told she could not take her dog, Jeter Bug, off his leash when she would take him to the park. So Mata entered Lubbock into PetSafe’s second annual Bark for your Park contest, which offered a $100,000 prize to be used solely toward building or renovating a

dog park. “If we want a dog park, we have to make it happen,” she said. According to PetSafe’s Bark for your Park website, in order to win, an entrant must be in the top 15 cities for votes. Lubbock is currently in the lead with more than 12,000 votes. The city must procure land permits for the property that will later become the dog park. Lubbock officials planned to use Clapp Park and if the city makes it to the finals, they must make a video showcasing citizen enthusiasm for the park. DOG PARK continued on Pg. 2 ➤➤

PetSafe against any lawsuits that arise from the competition or the dog park. Medina said his concern was that if Lubbock were to indemnify PetSafe, as it stipulates in the contest contract, anything PetSafe is sued for relating to the contest or the new dog park, Lubbock would be held liable for. An example of how the contract could be a problem for Lubbock is if PetSafe brought dog food to Lubbock’s new park and the food turned out to be toxic, they could pass liability to the city because Lubbock gave the company indemnity, which could cost millions, said Medina. “We cannot endanger the assets of our city for a $100,000 contest,” Medina said. “There is more than one way to skin a cat,” said Bill Curnow, a member of the Lubbock Dog Park organization, with a grin. The Lubbock Dog Park organization will continue its efforts through different avenues including private land or funding, and once they receive their 501c3, a

Finally, the city must get support from its leaders, which is where Lubbock fell short. On Thursday, the Lubbock City Council finalized its decision to withdraw from the contest. The council members based their decision on the advice of City Attorney Sam Medina. “They (PetSafe) are asking for a lot,” Medina said. According to the PetSafe website, the winners must permanently include the sponsor’s name in the name of the dog park and include the sponsor’s name and logo in all materials related to the dog park. Medina said Lubbock must use PetSafe’s name on everything that has to do with the dog park and if anything slips by, it is just one of the many way Lubbock could be sued. According to the Bark for your Park contest rules, Lubbock must indemnify PetSafe, securing

tax exemption for nonprofits, they can begin taking donations and moving closer to getting Lubbock a dog park. Dr. “J” Lubenau, a veterinarian at Above and Beyond Pet Care, said she would like to see Lubbock become a more animalfriendly city. “You can judge a nation’s moral progress by how it treats its animals,” she said, quoting Ghandi. Lubenau, who is from Las Cruces, N.M., a city of fewer than 100,000 citizens, said even they have a dog park. “Exercise is the number-one cure for bad behavior,” she said. A park wears a dog out, which means less running around the house and tearing up shoes, Lubenau said. Before a pet owner takes their animal to a park, she said, she suggests the animals be vaccinated. “You have to take responsibility for your own dog,” Lubenau said. It seems that is true for the dog park as well. “We need more private citizens

Although he could not give out any names yet, Tadlock said he hopes to have one of the best coaching staffs in the country. “We are going to put a staff together that kids are going to want to play for, and we are going to trust them when the game starts, we are going to let them go play baseball,” he said. It will take time to turn the Red Raiders into a championship baseball team, he said but he plans to make it happen, whether it happens next season or in two years. “It is really easy to sit up here and talk about Omaha and winning championships, but we are going to put this program in position to win championships,” he said. “We are going to have to get a break or two, obviously, to win one, but we are going to try. “We are going to strive everyday to put us in position to win championships. Along the way if that gets us to Omaha we will count our blessings and we will be the happiest people, we are going to throw tortillas in Omaha.” The Tech athletic department made the announcement about

Chapel was Beth Cochran and Daniel Moser. Cochran graduated from Texas Tech in 2001 with a bachelor’s degree in human development and family studies, later finishing her residency at Texas Tech in 2008 and received her doctor of medicine degree at the University of Texas. “It was really neat to get married in the Tech chapel,” said Cochran, who is a Lubbock native and still resides here. “Both of my parents graduated from

Tech, and my granddad graduated from Tech and my brother and sister both graduated from Tech as well.” One thing that added a twist on the wedding was that Moser is an Oklahoma State University graduate. “I was able to have a Pistol Pete on my groomsmen’s cake, so that was our trade-off,” said Moser. The chapel is designed to represent the Spanish Renais-

sance style that flows throughout Tech. “It is really beautiful and simple and classic,” said Cochran. “It was a really wonderful place to get married.” The chapel, located off 17th Street and University Avenue near the McKenzie-Merket Alumni Center, is now open to the Tech community. The Hance Chapel was funded through private donor gifts rather than taxpayer dol-

Manson family member says LAPD shouldn’t keep tapes DALLAS (AP) — A Manson family member whose recorded conversations with his late attorney are part of a Texas bankruptcy proceeding says Los Angeles police should be allowed to listen to the tapes but not take possession of them. Charles “Tex” Watson wrote in a motion filed last week that U.S. Bankruptcy Judge Brenda T. Rhoades should reconsider her ruling allowing the LAPD to obtain the eight cassette tapes. The tapes made four decades ago are of conversations between Watson and attorney Bill Boyd, whose firm is now in Chapter 7 bankruptcy. Giving the tapes to the LAPD outright could result in media gaining access, and that would create “a public dishonor” to those “emotionally attached” to the Manson murders, Watson wrote. He prepared the motion from the California prison where he is serving a life sentence for his role in the 1969 killings of actress Sharon Tate and six others. “I understand these are the consequences of my crime, but there should be no more victims,” Watson wrote, underlining the last three words. Watson said allowing the LAPD to listen to the tapes should be enough to answer the question, raised by LAPD chief Charlie Beck in a letter to the court, of whether Manson and his followers were responsible for other killings. “If this be so, and it is not, the request of the LAPD can be satisfied by listening to the tapes without taking possession of them,” Watson wrote. The word “not” is underlined. A May 29 ruling by Rhoades gave the LAPD the right to obtain the tapes, made in 1971

or 1972. Boyd, who died in 2009, represented Watson, a native of the small North Texas town of Copeville, when the Manson disciple fled to his home state after the murders. LAPD spokesman Andrew Smith said Monday that Watson’s motion hasn’t changed the department’s plan to send detectives to obtain the tapes after Rhoades’ order becomes final Thursday. “We hope we can take possession and continue our investigation as soon as possible,” Smith said. Court records do not indicate whether Rhoades plans a hearing on Watson’s motion. Copies of the tapes previously were made available to the coauthor of Watson’s 1978 book “Will You Die for Me? The Man Who Killed for Charles Manson Tells His Own Story.” During the May 29 hearing, bankruptcy trustee Linda Payne said Boyd sold those copies to the book’s co-author for $49,000

to cover legal fees after Watson waived his right to attorneyclient privilege. Because of that waiver, there was no reason for the judge to block the LAPD’s request, Payne said. But Watson argued in his motion that he waived his attorneyclient privilege “for no other reason” than the book. “In the eyes of justice, I am fully willing for the LAPD to listen to the tapes to satisfy their investigation, but not to take possession, since they are not their property,” he wrote. Watson, now 66, was convicted of all seven murders. He, Manson and three other followers were sentenced to death but had their sentences commuted to life when the death penalty was briefly outlawed in 1972. Testimony at the Manson trial cast Watson as the cult leader’s chief lieutenant, the cruel killer who confronted the pregnant Tate and her friends and announced, “I’m the devil and I’m here to do the devil’s work.”

‘The Vow’ book much better than movie I

f you are a female, know a female or just really into sappy love movies, then around the time of last Valentine’s Day, the movie “The Vow” was a big topic of conversation. People were lining up on February 14 to see the Nicholas Sparks-like chick flick. And the movie turned out pretty decent. Some of the highlights included Leo (Channing Tatum) sliding down a vending machine as he wept at the thought of his wife not knowing his name and Paige’s (Rachel McAdams) dimples making it impossible not to fall in love with her. But, as most everyone knows,

Paige Skinner

the blockbuster “The Vow” was based — loosely — on the true events of Kim and Krickitt Carpenter. Their unique story is also told in their book by the same name. I just finished the book — a very easy read, by the way — and I have to say it was 10 times better than the movie. The car crash, physical recovery process and the

emotions were so much more dramatic in the book compared to the movie. This struck me as strange because Hollywood has been known to take the story and makes it way more theatrical than it actually was. The couple’s names were changed for the movie to Leo and Paige, which gave it room to change the details. However, a huge aspect of Kim and Krickitt’s story was their faith in God to overcome the troubling times. While Krickitt didn’t remember her own husband after the nearly fatal car crash, she quickly noticed something lacking in her life, which was her relationship

with God. This spoke volumes to me because while she was treating her husband, Kim, like a complete stranger and even struggling to get out of bed and walk, she was able to tell someone what she wanted to write in her diary — a prayer to God. For me, I didn’t really feel for either Leo or Paige in the movie. While Paige would get angry with Leo, I simply thought she was doing the best she could. And I felt sorry for Leo at times, but not like how I felt for Kim and Krickitt while reading the book. At times, Krickitt hated Kim for being around and pushing her to do her best during

her rehab. And while Kim became frustrated with Krickitt, he never showed anger to her like Leo did to Paige in the movie. For me, one of the highlights of the book was while Kim was away from Krickitt to continue his job in New Mexico, Kim made an effort to call Krickitt every day, even though she didn’t ever remember being married to him. One day, Kim was too busy to call, so Krickitt called him instead. Kim answered the phone and all Krickitt said was, “Hello,” and then hung up the phone. I thought this was hilarious because while Krickitt had no idea who Kim was, she missed talking

to him on the phone when he was gone. The family drama depicted in the movie was a far cry from the sweet, loving and supportive family Krickitt had in real life. And in the book, you got to experience the couple finally getting back together and moving on with their lives; something that was missing in the movie. Whether you were a fan of the movie or not, go and check out “The Vow” from your local library. You won’t regret it.

Hookah smoke more deadly than cigarette smoke Biosphere to experience irreversible changes soon By MEGAN SANDERSON

a cigarette. One out of three college students have smoked hookah, according to a recent study lead by Dr. Brian Primack in the June publication of the journal “Nicotine and Tobacco Research.” Out of those students who smoked, 50 percent of them did not smoke cigarettes. The study took a sample of more than 100,000 participants of various backgrounds from 152 different universities. Out of these participants, most respondents were female (65 percent) and white (71 percent). “Although current waterpipe use was reported across all individual

Hookah use has become increasingly popular in America, especially among college students. But what many students may not realize when they go to a hookah lounge are all the health risks associated with the smoke they inhale. In a fact sheet by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, hookah smoke is not only as toxic as cigarette smoke in equivalent amounts, but the smoker also gets 100 to 200 times the amount of smoke compared to that of smoking

and institutional characteristics,” the authors wrote. “Fully adjusted multivariable models showed that it was most strongly associated with younger age, male gender, White race, fraternity/sorority membership and nonreligious institutions in large cities in the western United States.” Primack states in the study that hookahs “should be included with other forms of tobacco in efforts related to tobacco surveillance and intervention.” The study said hookah is just as addicting as cigarettes because of the nicotine inhaled into the lungs. Smoking hookah can also lead to diseases such as stomach,

Daily CalifOrnian (U. CalifOrnia-Berkeley)

A group of 22 researchers from around the world are warning of imminent and irreversible changes to the Earth’s biosphere resulting from a combination of human population growth, mass consumption and extensive environmental destruction. The researchers’ report, published Thursday in “Nature” magazine, was headed by Anthony Barnosky, professor of integrative biology at U. California-Berkeley. As a collaboration among researchers from a multitude of disciplines, the report emphasizes the possibility of a biological state shift. Although today’s conditions are caused largely by human activities, episodes of widespread ecological change may occur similar to changes that took place during the transition from the Ice Age 20,000 years ago, according to the report. “It really will be a new world, biologically, at that point,” Barnosky said in a statement published on the UC Berkeley NewsCenter. “The data suggests that there will be a reduction in biodiversity and severe impacts on much of what we depend on to sustain our quality of life, including, for example, fisheries, agriculture, forest products and clean water. This could happen within just a few generations.” Campus environmental science, policy and management professor John Harte, another author of the report,

has been doing research in Colorado, where he has seen the concept of tipping points in action. In a field experiment that has been running for the last 22 years, Harte has documented how the plant diversity of alpine meadows can be rapidly altered if exposed to constant warmth. “The evidence in the paper comes from looking around at the world where people have come to see patterns and changes that are disrupting the natural order,” Harte said. “However, the paper is focused not just on individual ecosystems but on the whole planet. We’re looking at a global state shift.” The report suggests a number of critical areas in which research should be focused to improve policy and guide legislation. Campus Vice Chancellor for Research Graham Fleming said a development that has subsequently sprouted from the report is The Berkeley Initiative in Global Change Biology. The focus of the initiative will be to forecast possible ecological and biological changes and understand how species have evolved, how fast they have evolved and where they have lived, according to Fleming. “With funding from the Moore and Keck foundations, we’ll have over 100 scientists from a range of departments, including integrative biology, environmental science, policy and management and molecular cell biology as well as the College of Engineering working on this initiative,” Fleming said.
