The Mirror Poll:

Editor-in-chief: Steven Josephson

THE MIRROR There’s a woman who parks her Prius in the lot behind my house to feed a bunch of stray cat every day. She seems like a pergenuinely concerned about the welfare of her fellow beings, evidenced both by her choice of car and the only activity I ever see her perform. But legitimately, those cats are a nuisance to my existence. Admittedly, I’m a neurotic son of a bitch (and whiny, too). And there’s a reason why I am writing this in our student newspaper rather than simply

Last week’s question:


Thoughts from the editorial staff of The Mirror

An open letter to the cat feeder behind my house

walking out there and saying, “Pardon me, but would you mind feeding where, ma’am?” Even so, she’s usually gone as quickly as I see her, and someone who is devoted enough to purchase cat food for felines that are not hers likely will not be receptive to a cease request. That could get hairy in a hurry, so I’ll take the passive-aggressive approach that’s already in my nature and hope by some chance she reads this. That optimism—however misguided it may

seem—is arguably reasonable. with higher education is more likely to be educated about the effects of fossil fuels on the environment and reason her choice of vehicle accordingly than the average Greeley resident who may work in one of several thousand oil wells in Weld County. We’re getting a little far from the point here, though. These cats are monsters. They hang out just outside the front door and scramble when I open it to go anywhere. They sit

in the driveway and make me worry that I’m going to run over them as I pull in. And they walk around on the roof in the middle of the night, keeping me awake. I need my rest to cy in classes. With east-facing windows and a squeaky bed frame already working against me, the last thing I need is a gang of noisy feline neighbors upstairs. I’m not asking her to stop feeding these cats entirely. They are dependent on her because they know this is where they can go

to get fed. It’s not like these are wild cats that themselves, scrounging for scraps like “Oliver & Company,” even if they’d have their former humans believe they don’t need love. What about us people, though? Dear Cat Lady: I get it. Those cats need to eat, and they may well need you to help them do that. Just not behind my house. -Michael Nowels

Letter to the editor: Fracking happening right next to new student housing My son is a graduate of the University of Northern Colorado and as a parent, I was upset when I recently read a March 9 article in the Greeley Tribune titled, “UNC Students Can Pre-lease at University Flats.” The rental space sounds wonderful for students; a $10 million project at 1750 6th Avenue, located near Jackson Field which the paper said would be “ideal for student-athletes.” The complex will have private bathrooms with each bedroom, a ness room, common study area and other amenities. What they didn’t mention is that this new apartment complex

will also be within shouting distance (two blocks) of the newly proposed Mid-town Directional by Mineral Resources which will put 26 wells, 26 separators and 30 tanks at 401 17th Street. Not only does hydraulic fracturing (fracking) use approximately 10,000 gallons of water for each well while parts of the country face severe droughts, but chemicals such as benzene, toluene, ethyl benzene, xylene metals and arsenic are used in the process. Many are known to cause cancer, lung diseases and are toxic to blood, kidneys, liver, brain and the central nervous system. The fracking process can go on for months, and the silica dust which also pollutes the air can cause lung disease and severe problems to persons with asthma.

If students are living and exercising near drilling sites, they will be breathing volatile emissions from the fracking process. Is this something you are willing to risk? Greeley has already exceeded the federal guidelines for air pollution for the last two years, and it is known that a high percentage of this is due to the oil and gas industry. There are more than 431 wells already within the city limits of Greeley and 22,000 in Weld County. On March 4, the Greeley Tribune reported a massive oil gas explosion north of Greeley which resulted in minor injuries. This could have been more disastrous involving deaths, and the aftermath of the burning vapors and fumes could not have been

healthy for anyone to breathe. Visualize this in your backyard. The city, including the University of Northern Colorado, is putting revenue over the health of the student population and its citizens. This is NOT being a good or responsible neighbor! If you are a concerned student, go to or join us on mation on how you can participate in protecting your health. Responsible oil and gas companies don’t drill in neighborhoods and next to schools. Responsible governments don’t let them. -Paula Powell Greeley, Colo.

The University of Northern Colorado has gone through four name changes since being founded in 1889, but the cornerstone of the school has not lost its importance. It remains on display, 125 years later, on the Cranford Green.

Anniversary from page 1

Aside from offering 106 undergraduate programs, 120 graduate programs and over 100 student clubs and organizations to students, UNC ranks among Weld County’s largest employers.

Halley Armstrong, a graphic design major, says she thinks the school’s size has something to do with how well it has sustained itself over the years. “I think with UNC being a smaller school, the smaller programs have a lot more to offer to

the students,” Armstrong said. This may be the case, as the university has something of a laundry list of accomplishments. For the past nine years, graduating seniors from the Monfort College of Business have placed in the top 4-10 percent for core

“The graphic design program... the art program in general has a lot of great professors who are really skilled at their medium,” Armstrong said. UNC can boast 141,400 alumni to date, spreading from places as diverse as Australia to Nigeria to Thailand to Wyoming. Despite all of this, the university seems to have suffered from a bit of an image problem in past years. Trenton Bobbitt, a transfer student and a senior in the environmental studies program, says that UNC wasn’t the most contemporary or modern seeming of campus. “With the emergence of the downtown scene and the Moxi, I think it’s creating more of a community way more than when

starting to actually not leave on the weekends,” Bobbitt said. “It makes UNC more prideful.” The Greeley Creative District and the Downtown Development Authority have been formed, and they have spearheaded several initiatives with the aim of better connecting students to the city they will live in for at least four years. The city has begun to remodel the street corners near the university and downtown area, which may also help to bolster UNC’s general image. First Friday art exhibitions every month and the Bear Crawl, which encourages students to go out on Wednesdays and get familiar with the local businesses in the area as a result, are other examples of the kind of action that has been taken to make UNC’s image a more positive one. Armstrong also said she has seen the school do a lot more for its students on a personal level than she has seen at different universities. “Altogether it has a lot to offer the students. It’s more personable than a lot of other schools,” Armstrong said.

Hispanic Studies professor reflects on changes made in Chicano movement Natasha Krech

On Monday evening, students gathered to celebrate César Chavez Week and listen to a presentation by Professor Priscilla Falcón on the topic of her personal involvement in the Chicano movement. experienced in her lifetime, from being a farm worker at a young age to joining a new movement and now doing Samaritan work on the border. Many members of the Greeley community attended and had similar stories to tell of their lives as immigrants, documented or notm at the time. Their stories often shared of stereotypes in order to gain respect. Falcón even brought her old potato basket from when she was a farm worker and moved between the potatoes in the San Luis Valley to the peaches in Grand Junction. She even said that the handle had been lost to time. Stories like this were often followed by remarks of “Amen.” Some members of the community even got up to share their stories, whether they were their own or that of their students.

Stories included how farmers sat on the school boards, and how they didn’t enforce the laws about children having to be in school a certain amount of time on the children who worked on their farms. Another story was told about a father who gave his son a can of condensed milk and tied him to the bottom of a train in order to cross the border. Falcón even told of how at the beginning of the Chicano movement, they were given $50 and a bus ticket to start the movement in another place, but they always said that the movement was not just Chicanos. In fact, it was highly diverse due to help from United Farm Workers; which was itself in the beginning stages. This was again followed by shouts of “amen” and similar stories of how it was frightnon-violence. “We didn’t take a class on marketing and advertising like you did,” Falcón said. “You just went and did it because it had to be done and were you scared—yes. We didn’t even have cell phones in that day.” While the event may have only been attended by few, the words that Falcón spoke resonated with several people that were there, because they saw each other as family. They all have similar stories that shaped the people that they became today.

Task force ensures graduates leave UNC well rounded, educated Samantha Lee

A two-day meeting titled ‘Coffee and Core Conversation’ took place on both Wednesday and Thursday morning for those who are working to improve the core curriculum of University of Northern Colorado’s Liberal Arts Council (LAC). The council is made up of professors and advisors who dedicate their time to the core classes students register for in order to en-

sure that the graduating classes of UNC are wellrounded and educated men and women. The meeting began by confronting the issue of the current core classes that students are required to take during their time at UNC. Joy Landeira, professor and chair of Hispanic Studies, expressed her opinion in a way that every student can understand. “Students are told and believe that they need to get

their LAC credits out of the way. We need to get that attitude out of the way,” Landeira said. The council’s history in working with core classes is rooted in the structuring and decision making as to what the classes that will provide a good core will be. This is done through deciding and answering the question: What ultimately builds the core of a welleducated person? This was the question that was revisited many times throughout

the meeting and is the question that the council has the opportunity to access and improve. Michelle Behr, acting dean of the College of Humanities and Social Sciences, expressed that the real issue was coming to a decision of what it meant to be a well-rounded graduate. “We don’t have a very a core education needs to be for a well-educated person,” Behr said. “We need for what it is we ultimately want.” The council agreed that the core classes need to be a balance of skill and critical learning. Critical thinking and writing were two skills that all felt must be met within the core classes in order for students to truly es they were taking. Aside from the classes chosen to found the education of UNC students, the structure within the core classes was another issue that is looking to be improved. Opinions of both broader options as well as constricted requirements were brought up, providing both the pros and cons of the two sides of

The Monfort College of Business is accepting applications for its new Master of Business Administration program. Classes will begin this fall and take place at the Loveland Center in Centerra. The focus will be on giving graduate students hands-on and in-person learning. Classes are eight weeks long, and they meet twice a week. Students can take one, two or more classes at a time and can take a semester off if needed. Students will receive a solid foundation of business fundamentals in ethical leadership, managerial en problem solving and global enterprises. The program consists of 36 credit hours, 27 of which are core business management classes and nine that are in an area of specialization. Students can choose to specialize in healthcare administration, human resources management or a general course of business management.

Students in the program will receive the same inperson learning that they have grown accustomed to working with in the Monfort College of Business for their previous four years. In the early 1980s, the University of Northern Colorado had an online MBA program like many other colleges around the country do today. Back then, UNC’s MBA program was the largest in the entire country. But the program soon had to be shut down. “We had to get the program accredited,” said Cris de la Torre, the director of MBA studies. “But we couldn’t because it wasn’t feasible. So in the late 1980s the program had to be shut down.” In the 1990s, UNC successfully had the MBA program accredited and opened it back up. Now, the MBA program has grown to the point that is moving to Loveland. “We want to involve graduate students and have them get their education in person instead of online, which is how many of the colleges in the country are doing this program,” de la Torre said.

On a balmy spring day a handful of weary-looking music stugreen classroom as graduate student Kiki Cavanagh prepared her laptop. Hooking up her computer to the sound system, she tested the sound as it played a computergenerated sample of her composition. Cavanagh was preparing to play her composition for renowned composer Gabriela Ortiz who, as a part of UNC’s Open Space Festival of New Music, spent Thursday and Friday speaking, lecturing and performing at UNC. Speaking to students such as Cavanagh, Ortiz provided technical feedback and critiqued their compositional works. Cavanagh, dent in composition and theory, seemed to appreciate the feedback. “I think any time someone’s

listening to my music, it’s kind of nerve-racking just because you never know what kind of reaction you’re going to get,” Cavanagh said. “But it’s a really rewarding experience being able to gain

knowledge from other composers, especially for those that are very successful.” During the lecture, Ortiz also shared her perspective on modern composing.

“It seems to me that a lot of modern composers, for them, the most important thing is the process of doing something–the intellectual input,” Ortiz said. “They could use a really interesting process, mathematics or whatever, but music is about sound. It’s about the sound in time.” Regarding the compositional process, Ortiz stressed the importance of each student’s own unique life experience. “You have to live your life intensively because, if a composer doesn’t live ,they don’t have experience to express things in music. So live your life, intensively, because inspiration can come from anything,” she said. Ortiz herself comes from a storied musical background. Hailing from Mexico City, she was born to musical parents who were folk musicians in the Latin American group Los Folkloristas.

about it? There are lots of answers. What is the point of the whole thing? What are the musical forces today as opposed to then? Those were some of the many questions asked by the panel and were often answered in technical terms. Panel members collectively said they wanted to bring Baroque and Bach to a modern audience. History brings the music to life. And it all comes down to choices about the piece: historical, artistic and practical interpretation. According to panel members Bach is more accessible in Europe, as it is players in the U.S. Why does Bach’s music still speak to us 300 years later? The answer is dif-

ferent for each person. It should be performed with the best resources available. With how much Bach wrote for violinists, his works are practically considered sacred texts. On Saturday, community members had a chance to see and hear a performance by many artists of a few of Bach’s works such as “Sonata No. 3 in C,” “Branand “Brandenburg Concerto No. 3 in G” at St. Patrick’s Presbyterian Church in Greeley. Before each piece was played, a little history was given on Bach or the specific piece. For instance, while composers today would not think writing a solo piece for a violin was a challenge

or a risk, in Bach’s era, to do so was daring. It told people that the composer and player had total command of the instrument and its range. Like much of the music back in the late 1600s through the 1700s, the music was written to be played in a church as a sort of instrumental cantata, with all elements of a sermon written into it. When the musicians played, it was not hard for audience members to imagine such music being played in a church in the 17th and 18th century church. The real question for those non-music majors is: Why Bach? Why is he important today when we have musicians such as See Bach on page 12

he strummed his acoustic guitar, fans began to sing along. Arms began to rise and wave to the rhythm of the music throughout the set. Campbell is a well known name on any country radio station. When his newest song “Keep Them Kisses Comin’” came on, the crowd went wild. Campbell worked to get a connection with the audience. Throughout his set he reached down to the crowd, grabbing a cell phones and taking a photo or video from the stage with it in the

middle of a song. Love and Theft took over the stage, and the crowd gathered back to continue enjoying the concert. The duo brought a high energy to the crowd as its show began. Their two hit songs, “Runaway” and “Angel Eyes,” both garned strong reactions from the crowd as lyrics were again yelled out. The dancing continued on the sides of the crowd. The concert attracted an audience that clearly enjoyed country music, a sizable portion of the crowd consisted of non-students.

Older folks from the Greeley community made up a large portion of the Spring Concert. While it may not have been as jam-packed as last year’s Macklemore appearance, audience members said the atmosphere and energy that Love and Theft and Craig Campbell put off was enlivening.

We’re college dropouts, were not too proud of that but it worked out all right.” Many students know that “Love and Theft” is the title of Bob Dylan’s album from 2001, so questions about a connection rose. “We named our band after Bob Dylan’s ‘Love and Theft,’ Barker Liles stated. “He got it from a book, -

At one time, our temporary band name was The 84’s, Final Sons, The Banderson Liles, then when we heard Love and Theft and a good band name.’” “We still haven’t met him yet,” Barker Liles added. “But at least we’ll have something to say when we do. We’ll be like, ‘Hey dude, we’re Love and Theft… Get it? I bought the book too.’” Barker Liles even did a Bob Dylan impression and it wasn’t that bad as he took a brief second to prepare himself, then turned and said, “Those Angel Eyes” in the iconic Bob Dylan rumbley, raspy tone.

Look who’s Bach Original works and critiques in festival Bach from page 9

Lady Gaga? “Bach is the beginning of our world, so that’s why we have to look because it’s pretty much the beginning of our performance practices,” former Director of Music David Caffey said. Musicians say that is the beginning, but his music still feels relevant. “I think Bach is universal—he’s timeless,” violin performer Russell Guyver said. Guyver played in Saturday’s Bachcentered show. The Brandenburg Concertos were used as audition pieces to the Duke of Brandenburg in 1721, who rejected them. but some of Bach’s musical writing at the time was considered nearly impossible because it took command of another instrument that was not seen as able to do solos at the time: the viola. With Bach, violas became more than accompaniment instruments and moved to the forefront.

While violins and violas may appear to be similar instruments, but their individual sound and technique set them apart from one another. The festival concluded with a UNC concert choir performance of Bach’s “St. Matthew Passion” at the Union Colony Civic Center. The performance was accompanied by a professional orchestra and conducted by world-renowned guest conductor Simon Carrington. “The ‘St. Matthew Passion’ is Bach’s largest and most well-known work,” UNC Choral Director Galen Darrough said. “His family called it ‘The Great Passion,’ so as not to be confused with other Passions. Both he and his family considered this his greatest work.” The festival was named for UNC alumna Donald Bailey and his wife Karen, who have been supporters and donors to the choral program at UNC. “Donald considered his musical experiences at UNC to be the capstone experiences of his life,” Darrough said.

Dating game presentation explores maintaining healthy relationships Jennifer Hazeldine

Emily Hedstrom-Lieser, assistant director of the Prevention Education and Advocacy Center, presented a student success workshop called The Dating Game sponsored by UNC’s cultural centers Thursday at the Kohl House. The workshop contained information regarding relationship advice, recognizing troubled relationship and how to maintain healthy relationships. Brandy Haller, a clinical and mental health graduate student, and Jolene Aragon, a senior physiology major, were the two speakers of the presentation. Haller and Aragon are both advocates of the Assault Survivors Advocacy Program, which is a center at UNC. This center provides support to anyone affected by sexual as-

sault, intimate partner violence, stalking, etc. Advocates of ASAP are required to complete 40 hours of training regarding relationship violence and maintaining healthy relationships before they begin their work. “Communication is key and learning basic communication strategies,” Haller said as she explained one of the secrets to a healthy relationship. “Be aware of the resources available to help you through various situations.” The workshop consisted of a slideshow with information, images, quizzes, videos and scenarios. The Dating Game opened with a drawing activity. Participants were paired up in sets of two and then asked to draw a question that they wanted to ask their partner without using words, emotion or body language. The partner would respond to the question by drawing an an-

swer. When the activity ended, Haller and Aragon asked the the activity. Most participants believed that lack of communication was the most challenging part of the exercise. Similar to the drawing exercise, lack of communication within a relationship has the potential to destroy it. “It is a two way street,” Aragon said. “Being able to communicate effectively also means being able to listen effectively.” According to the presenters, couples in a healthy relationship should be able to share their thoughts and feelings without judgment, enjoy time together as well as apart and compromise when disagreements arise. Warning signs of an unhealthy relationship include: blaming each other for problems, jealousy out with different people including family members, overly
