Justice served 30 years later

Deanna Dent / THE STATE PRESS
‘A DARK CLOUD... LIFTED’: Leslie James holds a photograph of her sister, Deana Bowdoin, a former ASU student who was murdered in 1978 at her apartment. Bowdoin’s case was considered “cold” for more than two decades, but recently her murderer was found and convicted.

The night of Jan. 6, 1978, ASU senior Deana Bowdoin was having dinner with her parents.

Her mother, Bobbie Bowdoin, said she remembers asking her daughter what she wanted for a graduation present.


Hailing a greener ride

Four ASU students will launch a new taxicab service Thursday that may save you money while saving the environment at the same time.





Movie theater, tanning beds to highlight new dorm
A 52-seat mini movie theater, a heated pool with underwater speakers and complimentary tanning beds — not exactly the things you'd expect to find in your average residence hall. What you might not expect either is a single-room rent check that could be as high as $1000.

Police Beat
A 22-year-old Phoenix man was arrested late Monday evening after he provided cocaine and methamphetamine to a police officer, police reported.

Colleges get more control over freshmen housing
Incoming freshmen may run into some red tape if they want to choose which ASU campus they will live on this fall.

Jeffrey Lowman / THE STATE PRESS

The ASU women's basketball team will put its perfect conference record on the line this week when it faces No. 9 California tonight and No. 6 Stanford on Sunday afternoon.


Sun Devils aim for first road win versus Golden Bears

This is the hard part.

While the No. 22 ranking ASU received in Associated Press' Top 25 poll this week was good and all, it won't mean a thing if the Sun Devils can't win on the road in the Pac-10.

Who would have thought Jose Canseco was going to provide the most credible account of all that transpired in the "Juiced" era of Major League Baseball?

Opinions: Derailed

Rest in peace, light rail. We hardly knew you.

According to a story in yesterday's State Press, breaks have been discovered in at least 11 spots along the Metro light rail line even prior to its scheduled opening in December. Phoenix Mayor Gordon said the problem would be fixed by then, but we're a little skittish, light rail, if you're breaking before you've even had any cars on you.

So what can we even say at this point? I guess crack's gotten the best of you.

Opinions: The rise and rise of textbook costs

DEVOE: After spending nearly $300, leaving the remaining funds in my checking account less than an eight-year-old's piggy bank, and living the next foreseeable week on meals meager enough to cause a humanitarian crisis, I have all my textbooks.

I hoped that picking up some extra hours of work over break would ease the pain of buying my textbooks, but it didn't, even for one of the cheapest of my six semesters. I bought my books used and tried to take advantage of cheaper online prices, but yet again, my bank account was ambushed and pillaged.

A different kind of due date

Chelsea Kent / STATE PRESS MAGAZINE

The TV repeatedly blares the irritating sing-songy voice of Barney. In a corner, a rock-slide of wooden blocks crashes out of the plastic crate they were just put away in, tumbling under the couch to be retrieved, yet again.


Back on the road

In a completely different world on a highway 50 years ago, travelers stopped at a nameless gas station to fill up their tank. The driver might buy a 25-cent bottle of coke, or he might give some wide-eyed kid a free ride.


Gammage offers 7 Broadway hits this spring
This semester, ASU's Gammage Auditorium is playing host to seven Broadway hits.


A Slice of New York
A slice of New York has found its way onto campus in the form of the fast-paced pizzeria Lorenzo's Pizza. The pizzeria, formerly located on University Drive, recently moved into the spot owned by Villa Pizza, north of the Fulton Center.


'Mass Effect' a mass hit
BioWare Corps., the company behind the award-winning "Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic," has returned with another smash hit—"Mass Effect."
