Ex-director allegedly stole $209K from student lobbyist organization

The Arizona Students Association accused its former director Thursday of stealing hundreds of thousands of dollars from the organization for his own personal use. Between January 2002 and January 2006, Maceo Brown allegedly stole $209,056.31 from the student advocacy group.

Brown was executive director of ASA from May 2001 to January 2006. Funding for the organization comes from a one-dollar-per-semester fee that each student at every Arizona public university pays. ASA advocates at the state Legislature for issues relating to higher education, including tuition increases and voter registration.

Devils trying to avoid trouble

Road trips have not been kind to the No. 16 ASU baseball team so far this season. From hotel evacuations, turbulent flights, flooded buses, light failures, and snow-outs, not to mention an 8-9 road record, the Sun Devils have endured a lot.

Tonight they will try to reverse their road fortunes against Stanford at Sunken Diamond in Palo Alto, Calif. The last place Cardinal will also be looking to reverse a trend after dropping its fifth consecutive Pac-10 series against UA last weekend. "Stanford's a team that swept (No. 1) Cal State Fullerton and beat (No. 7) Texas and has been up and down since," ASU coach Pat Murphy said.

Take it like a woman


On the cover
On a small wooden rink toward the back of Castle Sports Club in Phoenix, 20 women race around on roller skates throwing large rubber balls at each other.

The balls are flying everywhere -- an exercise in learning to spot when a skater is coming up behind you. Skaters smash into walls and into each other. Every few minutes, someone takes a nasty spill onto the rink's starkly painted blue floor.

Outside this small circle, it's still largely a man's world. But inside, the women of the Arizona Roller Derby League are, literally, hell on wheels. They skate fast and viciously with the motto, "Get down and derby," they suffer broken bones and bruises and they often get into fist fights.
