Tempe crime rate dropped in '05

Tempe's crime rate dropped 3.8 percent last year, according to new data from Tempe police.

The factors behind the drop are unclear, said Brandon Banks, Tempe police spokesman. "Quite honestly, it could have just been a very good year," he said.

Light rail should be good for Tempe businesses

Light rail is expected to give Tempe businesses a boost when it's completed in 2008, but not until new residents arrive, officials say.

"I think you won't start seeing retail development until you see more residential development," said Daina Mann, spokeswoman for the light-rail project.

Tempe Town Lake and the surrounding areas will be a center for transit-oriented development in Tempe, Mann said.

Coalition aims to get out vote

Craig Elisco said he probably wouldn't vote in the upcoming Tempe City Council primary. With his busy schedule, he just doesn't have time to keep track of the issues.

"If I was informed and had more time to look over everything that's going on, I'd voice my opinion," said Elisco, a pre-business sophomore.

But a new campus organization hopes to change that by informing students about the candidates and increasing voter turnout.

"It's the culmination of many months of chasing these guys around, meeting with families, and selling," Koetter said. "We're fired up."

Different Strokes


On the cover
A scattering of regular patrons mills about the dimly lit room, stopping to chat at the edge of the small stage. Some wander into the side room to view the black and white photos of women in g-strings and oil paintings of two nude women in seductive embraces.

The Paper Heart gallery is calm on this third Thursday of the month. This is the night where the artists who currently have their work on display at the gallery come together, chatting casually at the beer and wine bar. Chatting with them is the gallery's owner, who seems part artist, part rocker with his straight, dark, shoulder-length hair and his bright red jacket.

Sex: Banging in the Bathroom

Although it is a slow night at Maloney's Tavern in Tempe, a small line is beginning to form outside the women's restroom as four women impatiently wait for their turns. A man walking into the men's room across from them yells, "Hey is there sex in there?" His cackles echo as he closes the door to the men's room.

Dating: Foreign Policy

One week after making his way across the Atlantic, French exchange student Geoffrey Marx met an American girl at a party. He smiled and leaned in, greeting the girl with a kiss on either cheek of the normal French introduction.
