Police have long Halloween weekend

Halloween pumpkin lamps light the storefront display of "Those Were The Days" bookstore on Mill Avenue. According to the Tempe Police Department, Halloween weekend celebrations meant more officers partrolled Mill Avenue than usual.
A Monday-night Halloween meant an extra night of partying for Tempe residents and weekend-like patrolling for Tempe police.

"People have ... an extra day to have parties even though it's not a day off of work or a day off of school," said Sgt. Dan Masters, Tempe police spokesman.

With Halloween falling on a Monday, Tempe police scheduled a downtown patrol slightly larger for that day than the force usually deployed on weekends.

"It really just extends the weekend one day for us," he said.

Deportation doesn't work, debaters say

A hot sun and an even hotter political issue overtook Hayden Lawn Wednesday, where more than 150 people stopped to hear Republicans and Democrats debate illegal immigration.

Downtown students will have to commute

More ASU students would likely commute to the downtown Phoenix campus rather than live near the University, projections show.

About 40 percent of the 15,000 students expected to study downtown could live in University housing, while 60 percent would travel from elsewhere when the campus reaches full capacity in 2012, said ASU spokeswoman Terri Shafer.

Football: Defensive back in familiar spot


Chris Atwood / THE STATE PRESS
Then-cornerback Josh Golden, No. 23, dodges tackles as he returns a punt during the second quarter of the ASU game against Northwestern.
Josh Golden didn't expect to be taken seriously.

In the past, the senior cornerback had joked about moving over to safety, but figured his 5-foot-10 frame wouldn't allow it.

But the ASU coaches gave him a chance, and Golden made the most of it. He had eight tackles, two forced fumbles and an interception return for a touchdown in last week's game against Washington.

The Cost of Culture

On the first Friday of every month, humble brick buildings turn into houses for festivals of light and sound. Innocent front yards are transformed into outdoor clubs as DJs spin records while pedestrians venture off the sidewalk to try a few new dance moves. The walkways come alive with people from every side of the Valley: roller derby enthusiasts, punks, soccer moms and college students.

Appropriately titled "First Fridays" what started as an agreement between a few galleries to hold openings on the same night has turned into one of the largest art walks in the country. A perusal of newspapers across the country reveals such art walks aren't uncommon in major cities and neither are the problems that come with their success.
