Experts are warning people to beware of bees as an exceptionally busy insect season swarms Tucson.

Sitton's love for rugby beats out cancer

Dave Sitton may be one of the most dedicated men to ever work in affiliation with the UA athletic program. Throughout his career he has made several different contributions to the various aspects of Arizona sports.

He was recruited to play baseball as a Wildcat, has coached the Arizona rugby team the last 22 years and has also served as the play-by-play announcer for the men's basketball team on Fox Sports Net.

His voice can be heard in the streets, at homes, businesses and bars of Tucson, which all turn to Sitton for each of his simulcasts. [Read article]

Hard-lines and hemlines

The newspaper likes to slap a goofy, smiling mug shot next to my column each week.

But if there was no picture next to this column, and I had an androgynous name - which, I know, is a stretch - would you or my editor at the opinions desk perceive my ideas differently? If I were a man, would that affect the way I wrote this column, and would that in turn affect the way you read this column?

Diversity in journalism is a fascinating topic for me as a woman, as a minority and as a writer. Despite my interest, however, the latest debate on the scarcity of female opinion writers feels like one of those tricked-out SUVs with the spinning rims that you see occasionally at red lights: a lot of flash and commotion, but not moving forward.

Photography may be the most accurate visual representation of reality, while sculpture can offer the most abstract and symbolic representation of reality. But the Museum of Contemporary Art's new exhibit uniquely combines the two with the exhibits "Dave Lewis: State Furniture" and "Dan Budnik: David Smith at Work."

As a part of their Origins series that examines the roots of post-modern art, this exhibition presents Budnik's poignantly real photography of the great 20th century sculptor David Smith as a compliment to Lewis' socially critical sculpture exhibit that examines power. [Read article]

Land surfing: Longboarders invade the UA

There's nothing new about skateboarding, but the elite few who ride them around Tucson are getting some competition from a new breed of riders.

Longboards, a kind of hybrid cross between a surfboard and a skateboard, have been making a comeback since the 1990s and are slowly, but surely becoming ever more visible on the UA campus.

Though most skateboarders tend to be linked into the high school age group, some veteran skateboarders now attend the UA and even partake of the longboard phenomenon. [Read article]
