Immigration blurs political lines


Deanna Dent / COURTESY OF THE EAST VALLEY TRIBUNE
Concerns over national security and immigrant rights have made immigration one of the biggest election issues for Arizona in 2006.

But unlike other key election issues that divide Republican and Democrat voters - such as the same-sex union ban - immigration does not appear to be an entirely partisan issue.

The Cronkite-Eight poll, released by the Walter Cronkite School of Journalism and Mass Communication at ASU last week, showed that a majority of Arizona voters plan to vote in favor of tough immigration measures.

ASU's own melting pot

Shannon Wagner is excited about Sigma Lambda Gamma's upcoming Japanese tea ceremony. But Wagner isn't Japanese, and neither are any of her sorority sisters.

Wagner's sorority is one of ASU's 17 multicultural Greek organizations under three Greek councils - the Multicultural Greek Council, the National Panhellenic and the National Association of Latino Fraternal Organizations - which aim to expose members like Wagner to a wide variety of cultures.

"Not a lot of sororities have that cultural awareness element, and we take great pride in that," said Wagner, a political science and communication senior.

Carnahan is Devils' rock on o-line


Ryan A. Ruiz / THE STATE PRESS
Senior offensive lineman Andrew Carnahan, ASU's most experienced player, readies for practice at Kajikawa practice field Wednesday.
Andrew Carnahan never expected to play a game of Division I college football.

Yet, now in his fifth year at ASU, the senior offensive tackle has played in 34 Division I football games, including 29 straight to begin his career.

"I came out of a small town and never thought I'd play D-I football," Carnahan said. "But I came here and have done pretty well."

Well is an understatement for Carnahan.

He has started every one of those 34 games, making him the most experienced player on the Sun Devils' 2006 roster. He even earned honorable mention All-Pac-10 in 2005.

Carnahan credited his amount of playing time to being fortunate enough to play as a redshirt freshman and being able to play through injuries.

"It not always staying healthy, but blocking out pain," Carnahan said. "It's being smart and being tough is the biggest thing. You are going to get beat up every game.

Nance's production doesn't reflect spot on depth chart

Freshman running back Dimitri Nance ranks fourth on the ASU football team's depth chart, but last week his playing time and production were second to none.

Nance carried the ball 10 times for 61 yards during a 35-14 win over NAU, leading the team in both categories. He scored from six yards out to put up ASU's final points, capping off a 14-play drive - the team's longest of the game.

On the Cover: Standing Room Only


Jeremiah Armenta / STATE PRESS MAGAZINE
On a muggy Thursday evening in late August, Phoenix's Modified Arts is packed to the brim with sweaty attendees waiting to see Phoenix band Reubens Accomplice take the stage.

Two nights later, a long line of people stretches down Jackson Street in Phoenix, waiting to enter the Brickhouse Theater to see a show that features local acts The Stiletto Formal and DeSole.

Both crowds are here to see shows that feature both local and national acts.

While national magazines like Rolling Stone and Billboard have reported decreases in live music performance sales in the last few years, many Phoenix and Tempe venues are not experiencing a problem.

Local venue owners, ranging from the huge, superstar stadiums to the smaller clubs and music halls, claim that attendance is high, but there continues to be news of a national slump.
