Protesters added an unexpected human element to the ASU Art Museum's new exhibit, "Democracy in America" Tuesday night.

More than 10 supporters, at least one of them a child, wore black T-shirts with an artist's piece omitted from the show -- "Angry Americans" by Ryan McNamara.

Football opener gridlocks Lot 59

The headaches associated with parking in Lot 59 are about to get bigger.

On Thursday, Lot 59 will be reserved for ASU football season ticket holders, forcing students to park elsewhere after 3:30 p.m., said Melinda Helton, assistant director of ASU Parking and Transit Services.

Football season ticket holders attending the 7 p.m. opener against University of Texas at El Paso will be given precedence over students with a Lot 59 decal.

Mormon center expansion threatens playground

Current plans to expand the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints campus student center could mean the end of ASU's Child Study Lab according to the lab's director Nancy Hoth.

The expansion of the Mormon student center, primarily the construction of a parking structure, would affect not only the lab, but also three other areas of the psychology department's research and training programs said Darwyn Linder, head of the department.

Infamous Price makes return to coaching

The ASU football team's season opener against Texas-El Paso once carried as much allure as a bridge tournament at a nursing home.

Then along came Mike Price.

Thrust into the national spotlight last year after he was fired by Alabama without coaching a game, Price, 58, will make his long-awaited return to the sidelines Thursday when UTEP attempts to accomplish the unthinkable at Sun Devil Stadium.

Predicting UTEP's schemes has been tricky task for ASU football

The ASU football team knows it will take to the field against Texas-El Paso on Thursday night, it just doesn't know exactly what to expect from the Miners.

As a result, the coaching staff has put together a larger-than-usual game plan; one that the Sun Devils hope will cover everything UTEP can throw at them.
