USC's Love named new athletic director


Aldei Gregoire / THE STATE PRESS
President Michael Crow introduces Lisa Love on Saturday during a press conference at the ASU Foundation Building. Love served as USC's volleyball coach for 10 seasons, guiding the Women of Troy to nine NCAA Tournament appearances.
President Michael Crow said he planned to use universities such as Stanford and California as models to guide his athletic director search. On Saturday, Crow picked USC Senior Associate Athletic Director Lisa Love to replace Gene Smith, who left ASU earlier this month to become athletic director at Ohio State.

Love, 49, becomes ASU's first non-interim female athletic director and just the sixth female to head the department at a Division I school with a football program.

DPS reports increase in bicycle thefts

After years of decline, bicycle theft is expected to stabilize or rise slightly this year as more people and fewer cars come to the Tempe campus, police said.

ASU Officer Randy Hoyum said growth, paired with a decrease in available parking, might cause bicycle theft to outpace the department's efforts to minimize it.

Student elections price tag varies

About $16,000 was spent on campaigning for the Undergraduate Student Government presidential and vice-presidential races this year.

The amount of money each team spent trying to get names and campaign platforms out to the student body ranged from about $700 to $8,000.

Knowing their roots


Brandon Quester / STATE PRESS MAGAZINE
Former president of the Navajo Nation, Peterson Zah is now the special adviser of American Indian Affairs to President Michael Crow.
From under a white tent on Hayden Lawn, members of ASU's American Indian Council sell tacos and fry bread. In the background, contestants for Ms. Indian ASU and other organization members parade down a runway for the American Indian fashion show.

The event marks the start of ASU's Native American Culture Week, which will culminate this weekend with a powwow on the band practice fields. The week is the only time every year that ASU's relatively tiny American Indian population becomes one of the most visible.

On the Web: Blogging for A's

From authors including average Joes and newscasters to celebrities and porn stars, blogs have gone from something the company computer guy does to a mainstream form of expression.

Blogs, or online Web journals, are used to spout off about current events, dish about the latest gossip or just kill time complaining about an awful day.
