Tempe Mayor Hugh Hallman and councilwoman Barbara Carter discuss issues such as student housing, motorized scooter restrictions and the light rail during the City Council meeting on Thursday.
The Tempe City Council heard public comment on possible changes to the city's motorized scooter ordinance during Thursday's meeting.
The council decided to review the existing code regulating use of motorized scooters to account for new technology.

David Werner, assistant government relations director to Undergraduate Student Government, said it was the student government's position that students should retain the right to use motorized scooters in Tempe.

Writing center moves into storied building

A 98-year-old building that was formerly the ASU president's cottage reopened Thursday morning as a $10 million "sanctuary" for writers.

The opening ceremony of the Virgina G. Piper Center for Creative Writing, which was once the only two-story structure in Tempe, included ribbon cutting and speeches including a discussion and book signing with writer Amy Tan.

RHA expands lodging credit to hall leaders

Residence Hall presidents and programmers will receive free lodging next year to compensate for responsibilities including running meetings, encouraging cultural diversity and building homecoming floats, the Residence Hall Council decided Thursday night.

Students on next year's council will be the first to receive the room credit. The new compensation, which does not grant a private room, will be one of several changes for RHA under the new constitution that was adopted during the meeting.

Junior forward Ike Diogu grabs a rebound Thursday in front of Stanford junior forward Matt Haryasz in the Sun Devils 74-67 win over the Cardinal at Wells Fargo Arena.
It's one thing to be the leader of a basketball team. It's another to be its sole means of survival.

Junior forward Ike Diogu single handedly kept the ASU men's basketball team's NCAA Tourn-ament hopes alive, carrying the Sun Devils (16-6, 5-5 Pac-10) to a 74-67 victory over the Stanford Cardinal (12-8, 6-4) in front of 8,960 Thursday night at Wells Fargo Arena.

Challenged beliefs

ON THE COVER
With her veiled hair, modest clothing, and olive skin, pre-business junior Rema Nasaredden knows a thing or two about stereotyping.

Nasaredden says she was helping the Muslim Students Association at an informational table during the presidential debate when "this total right-wing Christian straight out of Texas walks up. He starts telling us how great it is that the U.S. is in Iraq and how what they are doing there is beautiful," she says.

Wrist-bandits

The craze started with Nike. In 2004, the sprawling athletic company began manufacturing rubber wristbands for basketball players embossed with words such as Player, Baller and Respect.

The bands became officially mainstream last May when famous bicyclist and cancer survivor Lance Armstrong teamed with Nike to make a wristband solely to benefit cancer research. It is yellow and says, "Livestrong."
