Player and prostitute

The Parthenon
Marshall University

Huntington Police Department arrested Dennis Thornton, a sophomore linebacker on the football team, last week as part of a sting operation in which four others were arrested, according to Huntington Police Department report.

Thornton has been charged with solicitation of prostitution.

He allegedly propositioned an undercover female officer, according to the police report.

"The accused offered an undercover officer $20 for oral sex," the report said.

"Nice. That's the first I've heard about it," Marshall University Sports Information Director Ricky Hazel said when told of the charges.

The charge comes on the heels of last week's arrest of Garrett Morrison, a sophomore football player from Lavalette, on domestic assault and battery charges.


Laptop larceny

Cavalier Daily
University of Virginia

Fourteen Dell laptop computers, on loan from the Dell corporation as part of the ITC computing program, were stolen from the library between April 13 and April 14, according to University of Virginia Library spokesperson Charlotte Scott.

The laptops were taken from a secured area of the library, possibly while the library was closed after midnight April 13 the only time the computers were not in use by students.

In times of tight budgets, Scott said the university realizes the extent of the damage done when students are not able to use the computers.

"It's a significant loss for the students both for the work they have to do and the pressure that they are under," she said.


Menu site

The Diamondback
University of Maryland

In January, Dave Rubel and John Brennan, two University of Maryland freshman computer science majors, were itching to start a Web site that could bring in a little money.

Now Rubel and Brennan are the proud creators of Menuocity.com, a site they launched in March, which posts restaurant menus and contact information on the Internet. Their site joins Campusfood.com and DeliverU.com in connecting hungry students to restaurants through the Web.

"We thought it would be practical and we could make a little money off it," Rubel said.

Menuocity.com simply posts information, but eventually Rubel and Brennan said they plan to create an online ordering service. Their current roster of 19 restaurants has already surpassed the other sites' menu counts.
