Hull calls for smaller employee raises

Legislature still debating graduated-raise plan

Gov. Jane Dee Hull wants to make raises for UA employees smaller than planned and distribute them later in the year, she said Tuesday, changing her original stance that called for eliminating the raises altogether.

Hull asked the state Legislature Tuesday to approve 2.5 percent raises for all full-time public employees, including University of Arizona employees, to be distributed on June 24.

Originally, and as the law currently reads, all full-time public employees would receive 5 percent raises, with a $1,500 minimum raise, on April 1.

"Barring a compromise by all parties, my only option as governor may be to exercise my veto power and substantially reduce the April pay package as approved by the Senate," Hull wrote in a press release, referring to a plan that has passed the Senate and is now under debate in the House.

Arizona takes on ASU in Pac-10 quarterfinals

LOS ANGELES - After Arizona's 88-72 loss Jan. 23 in Tempe, Wildcat players downplayed the rivalry with Arizona State.

Not even the ejection of ASU guard Kyle Dodd in the Wildcats' 83-75 win Feb. 20 in Tucson could spark talk of a rivalry on the basketball court. [Read article]

UAPD officials hand out key-chain whistles to ensure students safety

University police say that help will be on the way at the toot of a whistle.

The University of Arizona Police Department kicked off the Whistle Stop for Safety program yesterday, handing out key chains equipped with a small red flashlight and a high-pitched whistle that students can use if they feel threatened or see any other criminal activity.

UAPD Cmdr. Brian Seastone said hearing the whistle is a way for students to help each other out.

"If someone needs help, they can alert others by blowing the whistle," Seastone said. [Read article]

Pac-10 conference tourney preview

Notes: Gardner and Walton may form one of the best 1-2 combos in the Pac-10. Gardner finished second in scoring behind Stanford's Casey Jacobsen, and Walton finished first in assists, 12th in scoring, seventh in rebounding and sixth in steals· Stoudamire stepped up big for Arizona in his freshman year, not only leading the nation in free-throw percentage, but also providing a deft touch from the perimeter · While Fox is listed as starter at the pivot, fellow frosh Channing Frye will likely see plenty of action down low. Frye started 20 games for the Wildcats this season and averaged 9.6 ppg and 6.3 rpg, and was fifth in the Pac-10 with 1.39 bpg.

Letters to the Editor

ASUA editorial hypocritical

I personally find it odd that the Wildcat is claiming that the majority of the ASUA Senate candidates are incompetent and don't have real platforms, yet for some reason the Wildcat (endorsed) 10 candidates. It seems well implied by the editorial on Tuesday that many fewer than 10 of the students running are qualified for that position. Why then will the Wildcat endorse candidates who are not qualified for their position? [Read article]

The Art of Activism... Las Sinfronteras exemplifies the intersection

At the Le Tigre concert last night, there was a queer rendition of the "Good Ship Lollipop." The performers wore tutus of obnoxiously pastel colors and licked lollipops that read "Lies," "Silent" and "Blind." [Read article]
