Bicyclists, pedestrians must follow law as well

Students on foot and riding bicycles must be as cautious of the men in blue as motorists these days.

Police have been giving tickets to pedestrians and bicyclists who violate traffic laws for a number of years, but because of recent grant money received by the Tucson Police Department, the agency is cracking down on violators, said Sgt. Carlos Valdez, TPD spokesman.

TPD received a $15,000 grant from the Governor's Office of Highway Safety to "create a harmonious environment where pedestrians, bicycles and cars can operate safely," Valdez said. [Read article]

Men's Hoops: Year in Review


It may not have had a dream ending, but the 2004-2005 season was an enjoyable ride for the Arizona men's basketball team.

For the second time in three years, the ride ended in the Elite Eight in heartbreaking fashion.

Unlike last season, the team played up to its potential and sustained chemistry throughout the year.

"I couldn't even tell you about the chemistry last year," senior center Channing Frye said. "There wasn't any."

There were distractions this season, such as the suspensions of guards Salim Stoudamire and Chris Rodgers for a game each and the demotion of junior forward Isaiah Fox and the emergence of Kirk Walters. [Read article]

The Steven Gerner Incident

Steven Gerner was prohibited from entering the George W. Bush "town hall" March 21, even though he had a ticket. Gerner, a political science sophomore, was wearing a UA Young Democrats T-shirt and had his ticket taken away when an unknown and now mysterious man spotted him. Twenty minutes later, the person returned to notify Gerner he could not enter the event. Gerner asked if his shirt was causing the problem, and the person told him yes. Gerner responded by offering to change his shirt, yet he was still denied entry. [Read article]

Mother always said, "Don't play with your food!" If she'd known it could be as entertaining as "Cookin'," she probably would have made an exception.

Having toured more than two dozen countries since its creation in Seoul, Korea in 1997, "Cookin'" is a combination plate of slapstick, percussion, martial arts, dance and loads of fun.

The premise: Four chefs are under the gun to complete a feast for Ms. Lee and Mr. Kim's wedding banquet. Led by Master Chef (Gon Ho Kim), Hot Sauce (Eun Ji Kim), Sexy Food Dude (Byung Joon Park) and Nephew (Sung Joong Byun), the chefs manage to create a wedding cake, bulgoki (Korean BBQ), dumplings and a duck dish in about an hour.

Land surfing: Longboarders invade the UA

There's nothing new about skateboarding, but the elite few who ride them around Tucson are getting some competition from a new breed of riders.

Longboards, a kind of hybrid cross between a surfboard and a skateboard, have been making a comeback since the 1990s and are slowly, but surely becoming ever more visible on the UA campus.

Though most skateboarders tend to be linked into the high school age group, some veteran skateboarders now attend the UA and even partake of the longboard phenomenon. [Read article]
