UA's Icecats skate on financial thin ice
The University of Arizona's club hockey team is losing the ticket revenues it needs to stay alive because of an agreement between the city of Tucson and the financially strapped Gila Monsters semi-pro hockey team. The agreement leaves the Icecats with only eight home weekends for the 1998-99 season, two short of the number needed for the club to financially break even. The Icecats bring in an average of $12,173 in ticket revenue per home game. The team was in similar financial trouble last year as attendance dropped during the Tucson Gila Monster's inaugural season. The Icecats managed to survive thanks to internal financial support, but there is no guarantee that more money will be there to bail the team out this season.

Marisa DaLee can truly say that she was born to be a Wildcat. Her father Ron played football at Arizona from 1969-72. He and her mother, Carla, both graduated from the UA. From her early days on, Marisa was completely surrounded by cardinal and navy. "I grew up coming to football games, going to the basketball games when they made the Final Four and going to Joan Bonvicini Hoop Camp every summer," DaLee said. "I knew I wanted to come here."

Finish the reawakening
Hate crime legislation long left to languish in many states may draw new breath, taken from the stilled lips of a slain gay college student whose brutal death is also sparking candles across the UA Mall tonight. If foes of the legislation do not stifle the national reawakening brought on by Matthew Shepard's death, that is.
