ASU soft on condoms, Trojan report states

Brandon Quester / THE STATE PRESS
Twenty-three condom machines were added to restrooms across campus during the summer. ASU now has 43 of the machines.
UA topped ASU in a sexual-health report card sponsored by Trojan brand condoms last week.

Trojan, the top-selling condom brand in America, ranked UA at 17th place and ASU at 70th among 100 colleges nationwide in a sexual-health survey Sept. 19.

Yale University led the list at first place and Brigham Young University trailed behind in last place.

Trojan condoms published the report with the polling service Sperling's Best Places, and evaluated sexual- health resources, school Web sites and student newspaper sex advice columns in ranking the schools.

Maintenance problems plague hall

When undeclared freshmen Cache Heverly and Tanya Mace were told to move out of Mariposa residence hall, they thought living across the street in Hassayampa Academic Village would be ideal - until they got to their room.

"I went down to the lobby desk and said, 'Our room's not working, how do I fix it?'" Heverly said.

Students pray for unity, Christian revival on campus

More than 50 leaders of campus Christian groups, students and campus pastors gathered at sunset next to Danforth Chapel Wednesday to kick off 40 days of 24-hour prayer.

The focus of the event is to create unity on campus among the 30-plus Christian groups, including Campus Crusade for Christ, Chi Alpha, Alleluia Lutheran Ministries, the Rock, Christian Challenge, the Navigators and the Faithful City.

Berg welcomes position changes

Doing something different is nothing new to ASU football's Stephen Berg.

The senior offensive lineman, who began the season at left guard, will be playing his third position of the year when the Sun Devils host Oregon Saturday.

Berg played right guard in ASU's first three games and will be moving to right tackle due to a knee injury to senior offensive tackle Andrew Carnahan.

Berg missed last week's 49-21 loss at California because of a concussion but said he's ready to go at his new position.

"I feel great," Berg said. "I've felt fine for a while, but they were just taking precautions until I actually passed the [baseline concussion] computer test.

"It's not too good when you are losing like that and you can't get out there and help your team."

Men's tennis forced to rebuild

Replacing half of the previous season's starting lineup is not something any team wants to do, but that is the challenge facing the ASU men's tennis team as it begins the 2006-07 campaign this weekend.

On the cover: The other candidate

Christopher Atwood / THE STATE PRESS
On Nov. 7, millions of Arizonans will head to the polls to choose between current Democratic Gov. Janet Napolitano and Republican challenger Len Munsil. Oh yeah, that Libertarian guy's on the ballot, too. And he just so happens to be planning the largest upset in Arizona's political history.

If you feel like talking to Gov. Janet Napolitano, you can call up her campaign offices, talk to Noah, her campaign manager, get directed to Janine, her communications director, and set up an interview.

To get a word in with Republican gubernatorial candidate Len Munsil, first speak with Daniel, who'll give you the phone number of Vernon, the media director, and you'll be speaking with the candidate in a few days.

If you want to talk to Barry Hess, he'll answer the phone.

The fall of Paul

In the sixth grade, Paul North was suspended from his Christian school for writing a short story that was "too bloody." Instead of the assigned book report, young North turned in his Rambo-inspired tale with a big, bloody knife drawn on the cover. Shocked, the school principal sent him home for two days.

But North wasn't upset; he was excited that his writing created such a stir.
