AZ Board of Regents approves union funding
The UA cleared the last major hurdle for construction of a new Student Union yesterday when the Arizona Board of Regents approved the sale of $59 million in bonds. The sale will include an assortment of variable-rate bonds and fixed-rate mini-bonds, which have never been used before at the school. Joel Valdez, University of Arizona vice president of business affairs, said the timing of the bond sale could benefit the school, as current bond rates are around 3 percent.

Pac-10 swing continues at home
The UA softball team shifted its focus from losing games last weekend at UCLA and Washington to individual player attention in order to get back into the swing of things for the arrival of California and Stanford this weekend. "We haven't played Stanford yet, and have had a chance to see Cal," assistant coach Stacy Hill said. "But our focus is mostly on ourselves, not the other teams. We can beat anyone." The No. 2 Wildcats (34-8 overall, 6-4 Pacific 10 Conference) are coming off two tough defeats at No. 1 UCLA (38-1, 7-1) 6-2, 3-2, and a split with No. 4 Washington (27-9, 5-4) a 2-1 win and a 9-0 loss.

Bulldozing over the law in Kosovo
How ironic. Clinton, an ardent supporter of the United Nations, is deliberately bypassing the laws set forth in the U.N.'s charter. Article 2 (4) of the charter, declares that states "shall refrain in their international relations from the threat or use of force against the territorial integrity or political independence of any state." The exceptions to this are when a state acts in self-defense or where the U.N. Security Council finds a "threat to the peace, a breach of the peace or act of aggression" and authorizes the use of force. There is no self-defense at issue in Kosovo, since Kosovo is not a state at this point. Nor has the U.N. Security Council authorized the use of force.
