Measles warning notices, like this one on a Memorial Union door, are taped across ASU to warn people of the infectious viral disease. A campus visitor may have exposed people to the disease earlier this month.
A case of measles was identified recently at ASU, potentially exposing those without immunizations to the contagious disease.

ASU officials are in the first stages of informing the student body, including notifying those at high risk.

ACLU withdraws lawsuit against University

The American Civil Liberties Union decided not to file a lawsuit against ASU after an agreement was made late Thursday afternoon.

ASU Deputy General Counsel Nancy Tribbensee said complaints against political science and history sophomore Laura Thorson and biology and society sophomore Hayley Ivins for violating a Residential Life policy that prohibits posting items in residence hall windows would be dropped. The policy also would not be enforced, pending the creation of a student-led committee to re-evaluate the rule.

Taking a giant step forward

EUGENE, Ore. -- The path had been cleared. The hole had been dug. The casket and tombstone were sitting nearby.

Luckily for the ASU women's basketball team, the lid finally was lifted Saturday afternoon.

To environmentalists, mass-producing alternative fuel would be the ideal way to save the world from ozone-clogging pollution.

To others, the concept is pie in the sky; a crackpot tree-hugger's false hope for utopia. But to one ASU professor, making alternative fuel work is a reality.

Corporate coffee alternatives

Standing in line at the fifth Starbucks on the 3-mile drive to school or work. Like any coffee shop, there are plush chairs, laptops and hurried businessmen. Even though up-tempo pseudo-jazz music is being piped through the speakers, there is something missing from this posh, elite Mecca of the Macchiato.

Though Starbucks, Coffee Plantation, the Coffee Bean, Gloria Jeans and the like are all beloved institutions, the true coffee connoisseur would be doing himself or herself a real disservice by missing alternative Tempe gourmet roasters off the beaten path.
