Sentence: Death

John Battaglia / THE STATE PRESS
FINAL THOUGHTS: Clarence Dixon reflects while his assisting council speaks to Judge Andrew Klein moments before the jury sentenced him to death Thursday for the 1978 murder of ASU student Deana Bowdoin. After the sentencing, Dixon requested the method of death be changed from lethal injection to lethal gas.

For a crime that took nearly 25 years to solve and a criminal case that spanned five years, the jury of convicted murderer Clarence Wayne Dixon needed fewer than 15 minutes to reach its sentence: death.

Opinions: Teeing up on a REAL golf course

WOOD: Let's suppose for a moment that I was a golf fanatic. The truth is that I'm not, and for me, that's a good thing. My conservation biology classmates might have my head if I supported big green lawns in the middle of the desert. Still, I have golfing friends, and their teeing off on lush Bermuda grass among sand dunes is totally normal.

Where dreams come true
"The Year of a Million Dreams" — sounds enticing, doesn't it? I, along with 5,000 other college students, believed so. Then I went to the world's happiest place, Walt Disney World in Orlando, Florida.
