Archaeology program connects the past and present

first_imgCategories:Campus CommunityAcademics Published: July 21, 2016 For Patrick Cruz, studying archaeological sites in southern Colorado and northern New Mexico this summer was a way to hone his skills.But the trip also allowed Cruz, a CU Boulder archaeology graduate student, to retrace the journey his Tewa ancestors made centuries ago.“My interest in the subject matter is very personal,” said Cruz. “I am interested in how Tewa peoples arrived, how they adapted to their new landscape, what social changes took place, what material and social traits survived the migrations from Colorado to New Mexico and what didn’t.”Cruz was one of 13 undergraduate and graduate students who participated in CU Boulder’s archaeological field school in June, led by CU Boulder anthropology assistant professor Scott Ortman. Students began the month-long program excavating an ancient pueblo site in the Ute Mountain Ute reservation in Colorado and then traveled to the Pueblo of Pojoaque in New Mexico, where they worked alongside tribal members of all ages identifying pottery, mapping sites, collecting data and learning about native traditions and history.To read the full story, visit the Office for Outreach and Engagement website.Photo: CU Boulder archaeology students Samantha Linford, Kaitlyn Davis and Patrick Cruz at an ancestral site in northern New Mexico.center_img Share Share via TwitterShare via FacebookShare via LinkedInShare via E-maillast_img read more

Combat Medic Turned Dispatcher Sues for Unfair Firing

first_imgThe suit says the next day, Busto did not go to work because the episode had triggered her stress disorder and she had a medical appointment. The city says the allegations are not true. The next day, Busto found that her access badge didn’t work, according to the lawsuit. ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. — An Army veteran diagnosed with post-traumatic stress disorder is suing the city and the Albuquerque Police Department, claiming she was assaulted, discriminated against and wrongly fired. According to the lawsuit, Busto had an episode in October 2006 and took more than the usual dose of her medication. When authorities arrived, Busto said she didn’t need to be taken to the hospital. The lawsuit tells a story of escalating trouble between Busto and APD, starting when the department allegedly failed to make accommodations for her post-traumatic stress disorder, and ending when she was fired and allegedly taken to the Veterans Hospital in handcuffs. According to the suit, an officer allegedly “threw her to the floor, forcefully placed his knee on the back of her neck and handcuffed her.” “The allegations are factually inaccurate,” Deputy City Attorney Kathy Levy said. “We feel confident that once discovery is commenced, what actually occurred will come out.” Judith Busto, 22, was hired as a dispatcher in May 2006 after she returned from work as a combat medic in Afghanistan. The suit was filed by Santa Fe attorney Merit Bennett and seeks unspecified damages. According to the lawsuit, an APD employee offered to send an officer to take her to her appointment, but when the officer arrived, Busto was ordered to come out of her house with her hands in the air and not to make “any sudden moves.” She was allegedly taken to her doctor’s appointment in handcuffs. When another employee let her inside, she was handcuffed, taken to the veterans hospital and told without explanation that she had been fired, according to the suit. It said that the state Labor Department found her termination was not justified.“It’s scary, you know, because all I was trying to do was serve my city,” Busto said in an interview. “You’d think they (APD) would be more understanding of military people who have served their country and have come home. They made me feel like a freak.”last_img read more
