Residents: University not listening to concerns


Christopher Atwood / THE STATE PRESS
Daley Park neighborhood association chairman Ernie Nickles voices his concerns about a purposed plan for ASU to develop the South Campus Student Housing Project in the area.
ASU officials are ignoring neighbors' concerns about a new south-campus development, residents said Tuesday night at a Daley Park neighborhood association meeting.

They want a proposed 7-level parking garage to be relocated to face Apache Boulevard, farther away from their neighborhood, or not be built at all.

The garage's proposed location would place it west of Rural Road, just north of the railroad tracks. It would be south of a new 1850-bed housing complex that would face Apache Boulevard where Mariposa Hall now stands.

"The parking garage cannot be moved," Steve Nielsen, ASU's assistant vice president of real estate development, told the group of about 70 residents from the Daley Park neighborhood.

Students take back stolen lives

When applying for a loan two years ago, Liz Nguyen's record said she was employed at a restaurant where she never worked.

An illegal immigrant had allegedly fraudulently used her Social Security number to get a job there.

But Nguyen, an English junior, said this didn't bother her because her bank account was safe.

"None of my money was missing," she added.

Interactive exhibit debuts Friday at ASU Art Museum

Melissa McGurgan, an ASU printmaking masters student, started showing her artistic talent when she was 3 years old by spilling milk on the table and shoving it around. When her mother questioned her, she said, "It's a masterpiece."

The same can be said about her interactive artwork "More or Less Campaign, Phx 2006," which will be displayed at the "New American City: Artists Look Forward" exhibit at the ASU Art Museum Friday.

Ware's journey ends in Tempe


Ryan A. Ruiz / THE STATE PRESS
Senior linebacker Derron Ware had four sacks during a 35-14 win over NAU on Aug. 31.
For Derron Ware, the 2006 football season has been a long time coming.

Ware, a senior, has seen it all in an eventful collegiate career, in which he's transferred schools, sat out a year and been up and down on depth charts.

Yet, after all he has been through, Ware has found a home at ASU.

"I wish I would have come here out of high school," Ware said. "They recruited me, but I told them I was committing elsewhere."

The reason Ware didn't come to Tempe after finishing a stellar career at Dorsey High School in Los Angeles is because he committed to becoming a Spartan at Michigan State.

Ware was a PrepStar All-American coming out of high school and was rated one of the top defensive backs in the western half of the country.

Women's rugby brings the pain

There are few women's sports around so barbaric that most American men refuse to take part.

That's where the ASU women's rugby team comes in to fill the void.

But because the game is so brutal, recruiting for the team poses an interesting challenge.

On the Cover: Spirited Redemption


Katie E. Lehman / STATE PRESS MAGAZINE
Enjoying keg parties and two-for-one shot specials doesn't make you an alcoholic - but it can make you a murderer. Here's how drinking and driving for the first time led to disaster for one typically responsible 21-year-old and how it could happen to you.

Stephen Cauley doesn't remember killing Benjamin Johnson.


The night of June 19, 2004, Cauley left a South Carolina bar, clumsily climbed into his '96 Eclipse and drove to a nearby Waffle House to sober up.


It was the first time he'd driven drunk. And it was the last time 68-year-old Johnson ever went on an early-morning bike ride.

"I don't remember ever getting into the car," Cauley, now a 24-year-old student at Paradise Valley Community College, gravely says.

Cauley was blacked out during the accident. Too drunk to realize he'd gotten in his car. Too drunk to comprehend he was driving. Too drunk to realize he'd just hit a man.
