Tennis event raises $75K


Tennis enthusiasts raised more than just a racquet over the weekend at a benefit for the study of a new pediatric cancer drug where more than $75,000 was raised.

The UA Steele Children's Research center hosted Raise a Racquet, a two-day tennis benefit at the Tucson Racquet and Fitness Club, to raise money for research of a new cancer drug.

The drug, 17AAG, is in phase one of clinical trials, which helps doctors evaluate how effective the drug is at certain doses, said Rochelle Bagatell, assistant professor of pediatrics at Steele Children's Research Center. [Read article]

Turnovers, errors kill Cats' chances: Arizona 16 - Stanford 20


Multiple turnovers cost Wildcats shot at first conference win

Turnovers were the Arizona football team's undoing Saturday against Pacific 10 Conference foe Stanford, as the Wildcats lost 20-16 before a Family Weekend crowd of 54,216 at Arizona Stadium.

In its first home conference game of 2005, Arizona (1-5, 0-3 Pac-10) committed five turnovers, three of which led to Cardinal scores.

"We killed ourselves," said senior tailback Mike Bell. "I know of a couple times myself I was dropping the ball and just being careless." [Read article]

Bennett owes no apology


After conservative commentator William Bennett sparked national controversy by suggesting that aborting black babies would reduce crime rates, one scene from the football movie "Varsity Blues" has been running nonstop through my head.

Newly minted star quarterback Jon Moxon is sitting on his girlfriend's porch, discussing the upcoming West Canaan district title game with her. After registering a series of complaints about coach Kilmer to the unfortunate young lady, the girlfriend, not wanting to hear more of it, slaps the new star quarterback with some curt advice: "You want some cheese with that whine?"

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]
