The new minority?


Deanna Dent / THE STATE PRESS
Industrial Design sophomore Matthew Jezierski is one of the four lead officers of the group Caucasian American Males of Arizona State University, which is fighting for legitimacy at ASU.
Sophomore Matthew Jezierski was labeled a racist by his high school administration and fellow students.

Trying to establish a group for Caucasian males, Jezierski said the administration immediately denied him.

But with the official recognition of Caucasian American Men of ASU, or CAMASU, Jezierski, an industrial design major, said he would get the representation he and other Caucasian males deserve.

The student group of more than 40 members plans to become an official organization by registering with the Student Organization Resource Center today, Jezierski said.

"As soon as we become an official group, we can be taken more seriously," Jezierski said. "It won't be like we're preaching on campus."

After Jezierski learned of the group last month from Leadership Institute field representative Emily Mitchell, he said he immediately became involved.

Few grocery stores force long walks

It was almost 100 degrees outside when nursing freshman Sharelle Osman walked back from a trip to the nearest Wal-Mart, trying to juggle shopping bags and a cumbersome new printer.

"We took the bus there," said Osman, who lives in the Residential Commons at the Downtown campus.

Up in smoke

Smokers will have to light up at least 25 feet away from any University building entrance, exit or nonsmoking area if a committee decides to revise current smoking rules.

The new smoking committee, made up of ASU officials, will release final details regarding the revised policy Oct. 20, said Mary Stevens, the senior University attorney for Employment Relations.

Veteran Bingham leads young Devils


Eric Binns / THE STATE PRESS
Senior goalkeeper Kim Bingham makes one of her five saves during Sunday night's 3-0 loss to the Mexico Women's National Team.
Kim Bingham admittedly has a big mouth.

And that big mouth on ASU's senior goalkeeper might just lead the Sun Devil women's soccer team to the NCAA tournament for the first time in three years.

As the first half of the season comes to an end, the young Sun Devils (5-3-2) head into Pac-10 Conference play riding an emotional high after shutting out the University of Nevada, Las Vegas and playing tough against the Mexico Women's National Team last weekend.

When 2006 began, the expectations for the Sun Devils were as low as they've been in a number of years.

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.

Radiohead frontman ventures solo

You may not recognize his name at first glance, but the word Radiohead might be a little more familiar.

As the voice behind five landmark albums such as "Hail to the Thief" and "Kid A," Yorke released his solo album, "The Eraser," on July 11.

This album could have gone in many different directions. Considering his musical past, Yorke might have taken the easy way, not breaking what isn't broken and essentially recording another Radiohead album.
