Tempe council approves limits on certain businesses

Tempe City Council approved an ordinance Thursday to restrict such businesses as plasma donation centers and hookah lounges in an effort to protect the community from loitering and heavy traffic.

The restrictions will require certain new businesses, including tobacco shops, auto-title loan stores, rent-to-own operations and various types of employment agencies, to go through a public-hearing process before they can open.

The ordinance will address concerns brought forward by Tempe residents that these businesses can have negative effects on their neighborhoods.

Litterbugs cause more work for ASU

Empty bottles, windblown newspapers and scattered cigarette butts are not only ugly to look at, they may also cost ASU as much as $325,000 a year in extraneous labor costs, said Assistant Director of Facilities Management Ellen Newell.

"I'm horrified by the amount of litter on campus and the amount of time our crew spends picking it up," Newell said.

On an average day, approximately 60 groundskeepers spend about six hours out of their eight-hour workdays just picking up litter, Newell said.

Football: Bowl destination but a consolation

What's the difference between spending a winter night in Phoenix, as opposed to Tempe?

High Marks


On the cover
A 15-page term paper looms over her head and a blank computer screen stares her in the face. After a week of this scenario, sociology senior Christine* decides to try a new approach to studying, something she's never done before: take a prescription pill to focus her concentration.

Her pill of choice is Adderall, a prescription central nervous system stimulant used to treat Attention Deficit Disorder and hyperactivity, disorders she does not have. In other words, Christine took an amphetamine to get her paper done. Christine swallows 5 mg of the drug -- half a pill -- around 5 p.m. on a Thursday evening at her parent's house. She says as she drives home a few hours later, the pill starts to kick in.
