On the green, there are bits of maroon and gold

THE CADDY: Seattle-born PGA pro golfer Jeff Gove gets ready to tee off at the 16th hole of the FBR Open in Scottsdale Saturday, while his caddy looks on. The total spectator attendance for this week-long event was 507,990, a little short of last years total.

A sports fan may expect to hear students chanting "A-S-U" and "Let's Go Devils" at an ASU football game, but probably not at a golf tournament.

"It's a party," said Sarah DeCaussin, 24, a Scottsdale resident and ASU alumna. "The fans' attitude is, 'Golf rules. Let's pretend we're at a football game.'"

Residents on edge after man found dead

A neighborhood home to ASU students was left shaken after a 23-year-old man was found dead less than three miles from the Tempe campus.

'This disease is still here'
When Tyrone Lopez went to the hospital in May 2003 with Pneumocystis carinii Pneumonia, he didn't know he was at a turning point in his life.

Brrr, it's really cold out there

Devils sweep in season opener


Winning is the newest word that will now be synonymous with ASU baseball coach Pat Murphy's career.

Devils lose in heartbreaking fashion

The 48-47 loss to the No. 18 Washington State Cougars, gave the Sun Devils (6-16, 0-11 Pac-10) a school record 12th consecutive loss.

Home away from home for Devils
The ASU women's basketball team's trip to the Pacific Northwest was a homecoming of sorts, as the Sun Devils dismantled Washington State 66-41 Saturday on the Cougars home court in Pullman, Wash.

Devil Dish
Since the Super Bowl is now complete, everyone will soon be talking about football's biggest game gracing the Valley of the sun next season for the first time since the Cowboys beat the Steelers in 1996.

Opinions: Texans gallop in the right direction with vaccine mandate

PATE: Texas gets a bad rap - almost as bad as my home state of New Jersey. But I'll tell you two good things about Texas.

The first is the barbeque. If you ever stop into Midland (home of the current president), get to this little place called Johnny's - finger-lickin' good.

The second is that it's the first state to make the cervical cancer vaccine mandatory for all schoolgirls. Bet you didn't see that one coming, did you?

Opinions: Everything starts with trust

VAIDYANATHAN: One of the hardest things for us to give in this life is our trust. Many of us will give almost anything else before we give someone this most precious thing.

This is not surprising; after all, we live in an age that bombards with "anti-trust" messages. We constantly hear about deceit in the news; tales of fraud, corporate malfeasance, and political corruption are everyday occurrences.

Opinions: Don't look away
Celebrities and politicians alike have been sounding off recently about the importance of AIDS awareness. President Bush's State of the Union even addressed the issue, saying that there needed to be more funding to combat both AIDS and malaria overseas.

On the Cover: Going green


Part of President Crow's New American University plan involves making ASU a sustainable campus. Now if he would only just clue the rest of us in to what on earth that means...

'Messengers' doesn't deliver

Watching "The Messengers" is like watching "The Birds," "The Amityville Horror," "Dark Water," "The Sixth Sense" and "The Grudge" all at the same time.

Local Limelight: Icy Core of Jupiter is hot
You're holding the edge of a patchwork parachute, waving it up and down while spinning in a circle.

Hot Spot: Mac's Broiler and Tap
Tempe is lacking in "Cheers"-like neighborhood pubs that skip the glitz and focus on good drinks and exceptional food. Mac's on Guadalupe Road and McClintock Drive is the exception.

Brite's Bites: No weeping necessary for this willow
La vie boheme isn't just for the French (or the cast of "Rent"). At the Willow House in Phoenix, bohemia is alive and well.
