Locks of Love cuts 50 feet


Apprehensive students were nervous but felt good knowing that, after cutting off more than 10 inches of hair, the sacrifice would benefit a needy child.

Free haircuts were performed at Great Clips inside the Student Union Memorial Center yesterday to help benefit the non-profit organization Locks of Love.

Two groups within the Hillel Foundation, the Jewish Law Students Association and Project Star, a community service group, and Great Clips sponsored the event, which provides hairpieces to financially disadvantaged children younger than 18 years old suffering from long-term medical hair loss, according to a press release.

Softball: Hollowell fans 15 Devils


TEMPE - Making her sixth straight start for the No. 2 Arizona softball team last night at Farrington Stadium, Alicia Hollowell showed she's only heating up.

The junior allowed two hits and struck out 15 in seven innings, as the Wildcats (29-3, 3-1 Pacific 10 Conference) defeated ASU 1-0 in front of a season-high 1,094.

The Sun Devils (26-10, 1-3) couldn't find an answer to Hollowell (20-2), who fanned 11 of the last 15 ASU batters only three days after giving up a season-high five runs to No. 3 California. [Read article]

Street vendors underappreciated, serve purpose

Street vendors are part of the lifeblood of this city. They are an underappreciated but integral piece to many residents' experiences. Most people who have lived in Tucson for a little bit of time have likely had a positive experience with a street vendor. Many may even have personal connections with street vendors without really appreciating it. Think of the tamale ladies who save the day when McDonald's seems like the only option for dinner. Consider the hot dog vendors on Fourth Avenue and downtown, who are open until bar closing time and have saved countless from the porcelain gods. These people, working in a sort of underground economy, work their asses off to survive while at the same time contribute a little piece of happiness and soul to Tucson. [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]
