Presidential candidates square off in Gallagher


The final ASUA presidential debate yesterday was dominated by questions of character and experience.

Both Associated Students of the University of Arizona candidates were asked tough questions about their past actions during the Arizona Daily Wildcat sponsored debate in the Gallagher Theater in the Student Union Memorial Center.

During the debate, candidate Jacob Reuben, a business economics junior, answered questions from a panel representing Arizona Student Media about the circumstances of his dismissal as corporate director for Spring Fling. Panelists also asked about a 2003 incident involving his fraternity, and comments he made to the Wildcat as a freshman stating his indifference to a large increase in tuition. [Read article]

Hoops: Salim cops Pac-10 honor again


Wheeler named sole Pac-10 finalist for national award

Salim Stoudamire's only field goal of the second half won the game against ASU, and it likely also won him his third Pacific 10 Conference Player of the Week Award of the season.

It is the second time in three weeks Stoudamire received the honor. His jump shot with six-tenths of a second left on the clock won the game 70-68 over the Sun Devils.

"It just shows you he's a great player, he's a great shooter, he's a great scorer, and he's a great leader," senior center Channing Frye said. "I wouldn't want to play with anyone else. I think he deserved it. He played a great game and came up big for us." [Read article]

ASUA candidate endorsements


While some candidates shine above the rest- senatorial candidate Ashley Eden and executive vice presidential candidate Erin Hertzog come to mind first for their efforts in getting Cats RIDDE a serious look from the administration - while others, like most every other senatorial candidate, stand out for reasons not as well-received.

When Saul Williams puts beats to his poetry, the man becomes more than just an emcee or a modern troubadour.

He becomes what we all fantasize being: a rock star.

Having released his self-titled album in September, Williams returns to Tucson next Wednesday to give us all a taste of his latest poetic musings when he performs at City Limits.

Most reputably known as one of the most talented spoken word poets the world has ever seen, Williams is an actor, a rapper, a singer and a preacher. And he's actually good at them all, but doesn't take kindly to his music being categorized. [Read article]

Hookah offers safe and relaxing alternatives

College students are always looking for the newest, hippest and easiest trends to keep their bored little minds occupied. While smoking weed will always be fashionable, it's illegal too. As an alternative, locals, young and old, are getting together to smoke the legal way, with the help of the hookah.

The pastime has become even more popular in Tucson since Roger Smiley and his wife Sarah opened Smiley's Ultimate Hookah Lounge and Coffee last year. [Read article]
