Fast-a-thon 2005

The UA Student Muslim Association invites students to participate in a one-day fast that will benefit the Tucson Community Food Bank.

The fast begins at dawn today and ends at sunset. All participants will break their fast at a dinner at the First Methodist Church, 915 E. Fourth St., at 5:30 p.m.

Several businesses have donated money for the event, and for every student who fasts, each business will pledge a different amount of money to be donated to the food bank.

Imam Naeem Abdul Wali and Scott Lucas will be guest speakers at the dinner.

UA director inducted into hall of fame

UA faculty member Colin Kaltenbach's 25 years of administrative leadership in two states were commemorated with a national award last week.

The director of the Arizona Agricultural Research Station at the UA was inducted Thursday into the U.S. Department of Agriculture Cooperative State Research Education and Extension Service Hall of Fame in Washington, D.C.

Kaltenbach has served "as a liaison for numerous cooperative efforts in agriculture on a state, regional and national level," according to a press release.

Kaltenbach's UA colleagues nominated him for the honor during his 16th year at the university.

"It was a series of things over the last 25 or 26 years (that earned the honor)" Kaltenbach said.
