Crow 10th highest paid president

Danielle Peterson / THE STATE PRESS
ASU President Michael Crow is ranked among the highest paid public university presidents, with an annual salary of $587,394.
Presiding over one of the largest public universities in the country has its financial rewards. A report released in The Chronicle of Higher Education Nov. 18 placed ASU President Michael Crow's $587,394 annual compensation package as the 10th highest of the 139 public universities surveyed.

Last year, he was ranked 14th at $518,394. Crow said he is satisfied. "The salary is very fair and very generous," he said. "I am honored to have my job."

Police patrols go up to greet UA

About 80 police officers will be on hand as ASU hosts UA Friday for the rivalry football game, which has previously spurred a number of incidents, including an on-field brawl.

Officers from the ASU and state departments of public safety will staff patrols scheduled before, during and after the game, said ASU spokeswoman Leah Hardesty.

Tempe justice courts moving to Chandler

Tempe City Council is protesting the planned move of local county justice courts to Chandler, a move Tempe Mayor Hugh Hallman said would burden city courts and inconvenience ASU students.

Misdemeanor cases cited by ASU police are handled at Tempe justice courts, but Maricopa County Superior Court is moving the facilities to downtown Chandler.

Men's hoops: Devils home for holiday

ASU men's basketball coach Rob Evans has been telling his team all preseason how much potential it has. And with this team's enormous room for growth, Evans said that it would likely still be improving when the season comes to a close in March.

Taking their first steps toward filling the rather large shoes left behind by last season's departed starters, the Sun Devils open regular season play at 7 p.m. tonight against Southern Utah University at Wells Fargo Arena.

Women's hoops: ASU seeks revenge in paradise

No. 7 North Carolina may think it has one of the quickest teams in the nation, but the Tar Heels haven't seen ASU redshirt junior Jill Noe on the hardwood in over two years.

Noe, who has missed the last two seasons with a torn ACL in her left knee, adds much-needed speed to a team looking to avenge last year's 79-72 loss to UNC in the semifinals of the Tempe Regional of the NCAA Tournament.

Lydia might be down a member (that cute blonde in the foreground of this picture has left to pursue another project), but SPM still loves them. The band is currently touring the United States for its new album This December; Itís One More and Iím Free.
The members of Gilbert's Lydia are so dedicated to each other, they wouldn't sacrifice anyone even if it was the only way to escape from a raging sandstorm. The indie-rock band is comprised of guitarist and vocalist Leighton Antelman, guitarist Steve McGraw, bassist Evan Armbul and drummer Loren Brinton.

SPM chatted with Lydia during its current tour about the hellish recording process of its full-length album, This December; It's One More and I'm Free and the death of its touring trailer.

Pins & Needles

When psychology senior Jaclyn Trecokas was a freshman in college, drinking a glass of milk was enough to leave her body writhing in pain. But today she says she can eat or drink whatever she wants thanks to acupuncture, an ancient healing method. And she's not alone.

According to a 2002 study by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, acupuncture has become one of the leading forms of alternative healing in the United States helping to solve ailments ranging from bone injuries to drug addiction. While needling patients for treatment is a far cry from conventional Western medical practice, a growing interest by the American public in alternative healing has led them to discover a different path to better health.
