Five years, five lives

Approximately 80 people assemble for a moment of silence in remembrance of Sept. 11 during a candlelight vigil at Tempe Beach Park Friday night.
Everybody has a story.

As the twin towers fell, it became apparent that the stories would reach far beyond the soot-covered streets of Lower Manhattan.

Now, a half decade into history, The State Press takes a look at the Sept. 11 terror attacks from five separate perspectives.

A university president compares the day to the feeling before a big storm. A soldier knew he would be sent to war. A student waits for his country to heal. A protester wonders 'why?' A New Yorker adjusts to an altered skyline.

Though their stories are disparate, the consequence is the same. They are five lives, forever changed.

9/11 memorial event

On Monday, September 11th, a memorial for the 5th anniversary of the 9/11 tragedy will be held on the Student Services Lawn from 12:00-12:30 PM. Please join us as we remember the events of that day.

Some can keep parents' health insurance after graduating

College-age people in Arizona now have the option of using their parents' Blue Cross Blue Shield health insurance even after they graduate.

Last month the company changed its policy to allow dependent children to remain on their parents' insurance plan through age 29, said Carlos DellaMaddalena, a spokesman for the company.

Program provides 'safe space' for students

A pink triangle in a green circle on a residence-hall door may often be overlooked, but to some students, it symbolizes a place they can be themselves - the room of a SafeZONE ally.

SafeZONE is a program that seeks to increase campus awareness of issues in the lesbian, gay, bisexual, transsexual and queer community. The program also helps people identify resources and places that are LGBTQ-friendly.

Devils Light up Wolf Pack in rout

The ASU football team's offense outgunned Nevada's "pistol" offense in a Saturday evening showdown the Sun Devils won, 52-21.

ASU scored the first of its seven touchdowns after receiving the opening kickoff and starting at its own 20-yard line.

The 11-play, 80-yard drive was capped off by sophomore quarterback Rudy Carpenter finding junior tight end Zach Miller in the back corner of the end zone for a touchdown. Carpenter's pass was thrown into heavy traffic, but Miller was able to come down with the ball and tie Joe Petty for the most career touchdowns by a Sun Devil tight end (11).

The catch was also Miller's 100th career reception as a Sun Devil.

"I didn't know about it [being one away from the record] till I was reading the program right before the game," Miller sid. "But I don't really think about records during the game. I'm just trying to get as many catches as I can and help the team win."

Miller had a total of 53 receiving yards and led all ASU receivers with five receptions.

Defense solid, running game still lacking

The Good: ASU's defense continued to impress in the early part of the season, forcing four turnovers and sacking Nevada quarterback Jeff Rowe three times in the 52-21 win.

The Sun Devils held Rowe in check all night, as he finished with just 163 passing yards and 18 net rushing yards.

On the Cover: Standing Room Only

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.
