Editorial: Lawyers not at fault when marriages end in divorce court
Just imagine if more young couples sowed their wild oats, put their serious relationships on hold and had wild pre-marital "relations." This could be the greatest method of divorce prevention yet.

Opinion: Clap like a crony for Bush's State of the Union Address
If it weren't for the rabid degree of patriotism I've been showing since September 11, I don't know that I would have watched President Bush's State of the Union address at all.

Opinion: Education is the answer to improving bike safety
When the air quality is bad, we all see it and feel it. We are more lethargic, we suffer from headaches, and our breathing is a bit more labored.

Opinion: Letters to the Editor
Kudos to Sen. Mike Liburdi and Graduate Affairs Vice President Paul Petersen of ASASU for sponsoring Senate Bill 57, which would eliminate the very organization which gives them their fancy titles.

ASU's path running through Bay Area
One road would carry the Sun Devils to the NCAA Tournament, while the other would drop them back to a familiar position in the Pac-10 basement. But whatever direction ASU chooses to take, its trail will undoubtedly run through the Bay Area this weekend.

Devils look for more accuracy from field
After returning from a two-week road stretch that included three of its lowest point totals of the season, the ASU women's basketball team hopes to separate itself from the rest of the Pac-10 this weekend when hosting the Oregon schools.

The lack of communication between legislators and ASU may clear up as University officials plan to meet today with the sponsor of a proposal requesting to use ASU property for a football stadium.

Newly elected regents to help shape ASU's future
The state Senate confirmed the appointments of Fred T. Boice and Robert B. Bulla to the Arizona Board of Regents Tuesday.

ABOR, the chief governing body of Arizona's three state universities, meets seven times a year. Its first meeting in 2002 begins today and continues Friday at ASU.

Bulla and Boice, who begin eight-year terms, are replacing board members Judy Gignac and Hank Amos, whose terms ended Jan. 21. Former Gov. Fife Symington appointed Gignac, of Sierra Vista, and Amos, a Tucson realtor, in 1994.

Getting to the 'Coor' of ASU president's life, work
"I am a great believer in cycles," Coor said of his decision to retire as ASU's president this year. "The smartest organizations out there make transitions at the peak of their cycles."

Sigma Nu 'caught red-handed' in hazing incident
ASU's chapter of the Sigma Nu fraternity is under investigation by university officials in regard to an alleged hazing incident.

A complaint was filed against Sigma Nu in December by a non-member of the organization, suggesting the fraternity had violated the ASU Student Code of Conduct.

"We got caught red-handed with a hazing violation," said Mike Kasulaitis, the chapter advisor for Sigma Nu. "There is factual evidence that says 'this is what we were doing.'"

Even dogs know they don't belong in film
Anyway, my significant caretaker (I find the term "master" a tad derogatory), Ashlea, has bestowed on me her creative duty as editor to come up with something worthy to say about independent filmmaking in her absence.

Red hot Griffin not just another Carrot Top
"The boys should be nicer and the girls should be more self-respectful,'' the red-haired bubbly funny woman says. "I don't want anybody calling anybody a biotch. I don't think the girls should think they have to dress like sluts and the guys can just have their baggy jeans and be fat.

It's been Chris Bennett's dream since he was a kid to be a stand-up comic and to eventually be immortalized among the legends of Saturday Night Live.

Local DJs create hopping hip-hop scene with new CD
Calle Recordz recently released its first Southwest compilation album, Scorpion Kingz, featuring local DJs, rappers and other hip-hop artists. Among the performers are two ASU students, Fabel and Cocoa Loco, who hope Arizona will become a permanent fixture on the urban scene typically dominated by the tiresome East Side/West Side monotypes.

Music Notes
It must be one laugh after the other being a member of Harvette's inner circle. It's obvious the LA-based trio likes poking fun at just about everything, including themselves, as evidenced on the 14-track, self-titled debut.

Veteran performer gives a piece of his mime
Interpretive dance, artistic expression and trickery of the eye are intertwined in a unique sensory-appealing performance of mime for the mind.

Independent's day
If you take South Park to be an authority on all issues, as I do, you would know that all independent films are about nothing more than gay cowboys eating pudding. With this stunning revelation, you are probably wondering how to get involved.

Shedding some sun on independent film
If the Phoenix Film Festival is a sea level starting point for independent filmmakers, then the pinnacle is actor/director Robert Redford's annual Sundance Film Festival.

A super troupe of guys straight out of Sundance
In 1996, Puddle Cruiser was an official selection at The Sundance Film Festival and was awarded Grand Prize at the Hamptons Film Festival. Last year at Sundance, their newest movie Super Troopers was picked up by Fox Searchlight and is going to be released nationally within the month.
