Kicking off spring season

With its last memory a dramatic come-from-behind victory in the Sun Bowl, it was easy for the ASU football team to have an extra bounce in its step as it opened spring football workouts Monday.

"It's fun to get back to practice when your last memory is a bowl victory," coach Dirk Koetter said. "It's good to be out here, the players are excited to be out here and are bouncing around. There might not be as much bounce once we start hitting on Thursday, but it was a good first day."

Eastern neighbors

Performers with U-Stage, a Japanese traveling troupe, make audience members laugh with their antics.
At the Matsuri Festival of Japan in downtown Phoenix, thousands ´┐Żof locals and out-of-towners amble down the walkways of Heritage and Science Park. They are shopping for authentic Japanese products and eating at dozens of food stands, where barbecue fills the air with smoke and the smell of grilled chicken.

On three stages, Japanese and other performers model kimonos, sword fight, play Taiko drums and dance, educating audience members about Japanese culture while entertaining them. Though it draws an enormous crowd every year, the festival remains unknown to most locals, as does Japanese culture, rich in tradition and beauty.

Off the Shelf: Text one

It is a dark and stormy evening when Julia Shal walks to her mailbox, the rain pounding the pavement. Thunder rumbles and a bolt of lightning flashes through the sky. Shal inserts her key into the mailbox, opens the door and reaches inside.

She flips through the envelopes as a sharp crack of thunder pierces the air. Shal screams and jumps, letting the mail drop to the ground. On top is Shal's monthly cell phone bill.
