Likins returns after surgery


President treated for kidney stones, given pacemaker during New Year’s

New Year’s is usually marked as a festive occasion with people partying the night away with music, dancing and plenty of drinking. This annual ritual is a way for us to say goodbye to the old year and welcome the new.

Men’s hoops starts conference play 3-1

Over the past month, the Wildcats have turned the corner after a shaky 2-3 start to put themselves in the thick of the conference race and back into the national rankings.

No. 24 Arizona (10-4, 3-1) reeled off an 8-1 run over winter break and now sits in a three-way tie with No. 11 UCLA and California for first place in the Pacific 10 Conference.

Editor’s note: Important time to read the Wildcat

There’s an old newsroom adage, “There is no such thing as a slow news day, only slow journalists.”

For the next 16 weeks, I promise you there will be no slow news days.

These are historic times for the UA. Along with the requisite tuition hikes, student government elections and the madness of March, this semester will also see the selection of the next university president.

As President Peter Likins passes the torch to his successor, issues such as class availability, financial aid and the fundamental direction of our institution are at stake. [Read article]

Ari Lerner, Anthony Fama and Matt Dhyr are starting a revolution. A revolution of funny, in the form of improvisational street comedy with their group, The Street-Prov Theatre Collective.

Monday evening I find myself in a not-too-well-lit alleyway south of campus. It's freezing (by Tucson standards). All 57 degrees out here are inducing bone-rattling vibrations. [Read article]

Fire twirling, sword swallowing on club's weekly agenda

There's a little pyromaniac in all of us. Blame our caveman instincts, but our fascination with this force of nature - both destructive and life-sustaining - starts with childhood, where experiments with a Zippo lighter and your mother's industrial-sized can of hairspray gives you hours of fun and, if you're lucky, a brand-new set of eyebrows.
