Volunteers help tax troubles disappear


Chris Atwood / THE STATE PRESS
Co-director of the Volunteer Income Tax Assistance program, Jonathan Neuville, helps theater graduate student, Sentell Harper, with his taxes in the Memorial Union Monday.
With tax deadlines looming in a little more than two weeks, ASU has a couple options to help students struggling with their returns. The Volunteer Income Tax Assistance program, staffed by law-student volunteers and sponsored by the Internal Revenue Service, offers help for students Mondays and Tuesdays from 6 p.m. to 9 p.m. on the second floor of the Memorial Union.

VITA volunteers walk students through filling out their tax returns, answering questions about deductions and other tax rules along the way.

'Don't ask, don't tell' unfair, former military members say

The military's "don't ask, don't tell" policy should be repealed, six former members of the military said during a forum Tuesday night in Murdock Hall. About 30 students listened as the openly gay military members spoke about the law as part of the Call to Duty college tour, which is making its way across the country.

Investigation finds police chief violated ethics code

Tempe's police chief violated city ethics and conduct codes, according to a report released Tuesday, but he won't be immediately disciplined.

Harris enjoying the ride


Deanna Dent / THE STATE PRESS
Freshman Nicole Harris wraps up her routine on the balance beam during practice at the John Spini Women's Gymnastics Training Center last week.
Gymnastics used to be Nicole Harris' life. Now, it's just what she does for enjoyment. And the newcomer to ASU's program has loved nearly every minute of her first season in Tempe.

Though her background -- which includes three years competing for USA Gymnastics and narrowly missing a spot in the 2004 Olympic roster -- reflects the individual mentality often associated with gymnastics, Harris' personality seems much more fitting of a college atmosphere.

Water Polo: Devils drop close one

For the No. 10 ASU water polo team, its last possession Tuesday night summed up the entire contest. Trailing by a goal with 26 seconds remaining, the Sun Devils passed the ball around nicely before finding center Katy Lawlor directly in front of California's goal.

Back to School: The 27-year-old Undergrad


Tiffany Tcheng / STATE PRESS MAGAZINE
Adult re-entry students don't want to hear about how many beers you shotgunned last night, who you're sleeping with or where you bought your new lipstick.
Sitting in the back of the class, the girls behind me are having a heated debate about the difference between "vodka-drunk" and "tequila-drunk." In front of me, a guy is discussing his sexual adventures with "what's her name." To both my right and left, there is some furious Blackberry texting going on.

Sitting in the back of a 200-plus student lecture class is the collegiate equivalent of the elementary school back-of-the-bus ride. It's where all the cool kids sit, and nothing good can come of it.

On Tape: Film director Jason Reitman, "Thank You for Smoking"

"You guys don't mind if I eat while we do this, do you?" Jason Reitman asks as he takes a seat. The director of "Thank You for Smoking" appears healthy and ready to take on the world, a disposition many wouldn't share while touring the country promoting their debut feature film.
