Hoopsters score for charity


Players from the UA men's basketball team got down and dirty building houses for charity yesterday afternoon in collaboration with Habitat for Humanity and the High School Build Program.

Team members sported matching black T-shirts that read "Habitat's Tip-Off for 2005-2006" as they helped build a house at Howenstine Magnet High School for an underprivileged family.

Students from Howenstine, Santa Rita, Sabino and Sahuarita high schools participated in the kick-off event of the Habitat High School Build Program, an apprenticeship program for career and technology education students, according to a press release. [Read article]

Pushing the pace


Soccer attack doesn't slacken when freshman subs give starters a breather

When Arizona soccer head coach Dan Tobias recruited freshmen forwards London King and Gianna DeSaverio last year, he didn't have to flaunt his team's Pacific 10 Conference title in 2005 or his National Coach of the Year award.

He simply had to say something like, 'OK, ladies, meet the Arizona soccer team,' and the squad pretty much sold itself.

Both King and DeSaverio said the top reason they came to Tucson over schools like UCLA, Southern California, Dartmouth and Miami was because the Arizona players were nicer and funnier than any of the other teams they had gone to visit. [Read article]

Last stop: democracy


I went to see a play the other night. This being Tucson, in the middle of the performance a train went by somewhere outside the theater, and the dialogue was barely audible over the sound of the whistle. I sat annoyed for a while at this obnoxious intrusion of real life in the fantasy I'd been enjoying watching.

There's a play that many of us like to imagine about democracy. Like a lot of plays, it has a neat beginning, middle and end. In the opening act, a constitution is drafted. In the middle, a joyous and grateful people ratify it, each member represented. At the conclusion of the final act, the players take their bows and waltz off stage, confident in the new life democracy will offer. [Read article]

Bevelvision: High art for the whole family

The Mat Bevel Institute is the only bit of color you'll find on a nondescript stretch of road on North Stone Avenue, which leads into downtown. A barren enclosed yard fronts a sky-blue brick building with the word "Bevel" painted on its left corner. Except for the color there's really nothing much to the outside of the building.

Yet, the blah, humdrum exterior completely belies what you'll find inside. [Read article]

Cool evening temperature, activities lure students outdoors

The days on campus are filled with crowds of bustling students hurrying to classes under the unrelenting Tucson sun. But when the sun goes down, the pace slows and many students find it the perfect time to work out, study or just take it easy.

"I'm out here a couple nights a week," said Peter Khoury, an undeclared freshman, between tosses of a light-emitting flying disc. "It's less crowded and the weather's better." [Read article]
