Facility dedication set for Oct. 28

For nearly 30 years, physicians and scientists of the UA Sarver Heart Center have been working in various offices spread throughout the University Medical Center.

On Oct. 28, more than 1,000 people are expected to attend the formal dedication of the new University of Arizona Sarver Heart Center building.

The three-story building - constructed on top of the existing Arizona Health Sciences Library - will consolidate many of the 100 Sarver physicians and scientists under one roof.

The addition, which will be gifted to the state once it is completed, is expected to increase the size of the center to about 43,000 square feet. By Thanksgiving, expanded research facilities, classrooms and administrative offices will officially call the new facility home.

For the director, the new UA Sarver Heart Center is the realization of a dream.

Plenty if blame to share at Sky View

Last Friday, this paper ran a lead story exposing the awful living conditions of students in the UA-run Sky View apartments. Water didn't work. Electricity went out. Doors lacked doorknobs. The next day, the problems started being fixed. This is what needed to be done, but it never should have happened in the first place.

Complaints registered by the students went to through Residence Life. Supposedly, Residence Life then passed the work orders on to Eastern Way, the company which manages Sky View and several other local apartment complexes.
