Devils still alive at College World Series

OMAHA, Neb. -- After facing two straight elimination games against Cal State Fullerton in the Super Regionals on June 11-12, the ASU baseball team was used to having its back against the wall. But even this was a little close for comfort.

The Sun Devils managed just one run through seven innings of play on Sunday, and found themselves six outs away from College World Series elimination. However, ASU strung together four consecutive hits to start the eighth, en route to a 4-2 victory over Tennessee in front of an estimated crowd of 17,000 at Rosenblatt Stadium.

Some undergraduates to pay graduate tuition

ASU postponed a 25 percent tuition increase last week for undergraduate students who have completed at least 155 credit hours.

Beginning in fall 2006, these students will pay graduate tuition for undergraduate courses.

Traffic slowed on Rural Road

Gridlock has become a daily reality for students, faculty and staff commuting to ASU along Rural Road.

Construction in the middle lanes of the street between Apache Boulevard and Terrace Road is causing major delays for drivers, said Larry Shobe, senior transportation planner for Tempe.

The Sun Devils will face off against the Cornhuskers (53-13) on Friday, either at 11 a.m. or 4 p.m. The other two teams in ASU's bracket are Florida and Tennessee.

In Their Own Words: Guilt Trip

When I first arrived in Stellenbosch, South Africa, in fall 2004, it was hard to convince myself that I actually was in Africa. The quiet town seemed to be made up almost entirely of university students and South African wine farmers.

The buildings in Stellenbosch are mostly milk white and blanketed with black, thatched roofs. The streets are lined with oak trees, reportedly brought by founder Simon van der Stel in the late 1600s. A river meanders through the expensive tourist shops, ethnic restaurants and classic, Dutch-style buildings of the University of Stellenbosch.

Local artist Long on depth

The roots run deep and dark along most of the canvas, the beautiful buds barely peeking out toward the top third of the painting from beneath the depths, mirroring the artist.

There is a lot more to Steve Long than his innocent good looks reveal. Long, 41, of Chandler, was inspired by art at an early age.
