BARACK STARS: Gov. Janet Napolitano discusses Barack Obama’s campaign alongside celebrity Kate Walsh in the MU Wednesday.

Students packed the basement of the Memorial Union Wednesday afternoon as former "Grey's Anatomy" and current "Private Practice" star Kate Walsh and Gov. Janet Napolitano urged students to vote early and support Sen. Barack Obama.

Grief takes the stand

Several of the 14 jurors cried as Leslie James said she remembered going to her sister's apartment to pick out earrings to bury her sister in — something no person should ever have to do, she said.

Police Beat
A 25-year-old Tempe man and ASU employee was arrested late Tuesday night for illegal possession of prescription drugs and dangerous drugs, police reported.

King's legacy comes alive for eighth-graders on West campus
The Fletcher Library Lawn at ASU West was filled with slightly younger students than usual Wednesday morning.

Cloverfield Q&A
"Cloverfield", an effective disaster movie told from a first person documentary-style perspective, took in about $40 million in its opening weekend.

Rose Review: There Will Be Blood
I knew that Daniel Day-Lewis could take out Scarface (Al Pacino) after seeing his vehement character in Gangs of New York, but I was unsure that he could take on Tony Soprano (James Gandolfini).

Making the decision to transfer schools, and then sitting on the bench for an entire year is never easy for an athlete.

Sun Devils prepare for Huskies without Harden

If the No. 24 ASU men's basketball team wants to start a new winning streak, it will have to look to somebody new for offensive production Thursday versus Washington (11-7, 2-3 Pac-10) at Wells Fargo Arena.

Pacific Northwest prime territory to end losing streak
The ASU women's basketball team will look to get back in the win column this week when it takes on the Washington schools in the Pacific Northwest.

Devil Dish
Since the age of 10, I've been in love with ESPN and SportsCenter. Nothing was better than 24 hours of sports shows, scores, news and highlights. I enjoyed it so much, I spent my teenage years falling asleep to SportsCenter on the living room couch.

ASU hopes preseason work pays off during spring
After a strong fall season, the ASU women's water polo team is poised to start its spring season, which begins this weekend at the Michigan Kick-Off in Ann Arbor.

Opinions: Underdogs

Hillary Clinton. Barack Obama. John Edwards. Tish Haymer. Wait, Tish Haymer?!

One look at the 24-candidate sample ballot for the Arizona Democratic Party's February 5 primary contains a dozen surprises— it's quite a strange sight having household names like Clinton and Obama listed along with Richard Grayson and Rich Lee. Yet, there's something so uniquely American and beautifully patriotic to seeing them there.

Opinions: More like electoral preschool

PELTON: Attention nearly half of America: your vote for president won't count.

I've never read Kerouac. I know nothing about Ken Kesey's "Merry Pranksters" and their acid-fueled jaunt across the U.S. in the '70s.

Disappointing Dragonfly

The building on the corner of Mill Avenue and Sixth Street in downtown Tempe has seen a variety of restaurants come and go in the last few years. Dragonfly Vietnamese Kitchen, currently taking up residency there, seems to be an unlikely candidate for permanency.

An even exchange
ASU students are part of the illegal drug market, where dealers trade the dangers of selling for a lucrative lifestyle.

Now that tuition is paid, books are bought and the year is in full swing, the stress of the new semester is in the past. But before students get to kick back and Facebook the day away, they have papers to write and exams to study for, leaving limited time for much else.

Say Anything's new album 'confused'
If there could be one word to sum up Say Anything's new album "In Defense of the Genre," it would be "confused."
