Perry argues medical issues

Israeli Prime Minister Ehud Barak and Palestinian leader Yasser Arafat agreed to end the violence that has plagued the Middle East for the last two weeks. While a lasting peace is still uncertain, Paul Perry, Democratic challenger for the 8th district congressional seat, said the United States should support Israel.

Attorneys' settlement efforts fail

Despite a teleconference attempt last week, IU and the Genocide Awareness Project haven't reached a compromise to settle group's civil rights lawsuit against the University.

Citizens' lawsuit shapes up

A lawsuit filed by Indiana citizens and IU alumni against the University for avoiding state laws is beginning to take shape. The plaintiffs now know who will defend the University, what judge is likely to hear the case and what is likely to happen next.

Hoosiers look to avenge Penn State victories

Amanda Welter just wants to beat Penn State -- once. In Welter's four years in Bloomington, IU has knocked off the perennial power Nittany Lions in only one game. One game in 19 tries.

Golfers take team, individual titles at Legends

It could have been a long, depressing winter. As the last tournament of the Hoosiers' fall season, the Legends Intercollegiate would decide whether the next five months would be spent celebrating their success or dwelling on missed opportunities. As it turns out, they won't have much time for the latter.

Soccer team expects tough match

The men's soccer team earned itself a No. 1 seed in the Big Ten Tournament Sunday when it beat Northwestern in its final home game. Next order of business: ensuring more home games come NCAA tournament time.

Football team tries to salvage season

Ten minutes was all it took. After getting pounded 58-0 at Michigan on ABC regional television and before 110,909 fans, the seniors and leaders of the football team called a meeting Sunday afternoon to discuss the loss.

Angle gets title shot at 'No Mercy'

In a prelude to Sunday's pay-per-view, "No Mercy," and in front of a sold-out crowd at Joe Louis Arena in Detroit, Eddie Guerrero set the stage for "Monday Night Raw" by entering the ring first and bad-mouthing Chyna. Look for these two to stay broken up, as Guerrero will face Bad Ass Billy Gunn Sunday. You could even see Gunn with the Intercontinental Title come next Monday's Raw. Rikishi then gave an interview about Stone Cold Steve Austin. His feelings were hurt because The Rock did not appreciate him running over Austin to help launch his career. Later in the show when Austin came out to address the crowd, Rikishi came on the big screen.

Momentum grows as crew team rows

The crew team added another strong performance to the list of fall accomplishments at the third annual Lemonhead Regatta Saturday afternoon at Lake Lemon in Bloomington.

When sparks turn into firestorms

The police in riot gear, complete with shields and helmets, stood guard around IU President Myles Brand's house. Their dogs were nipping at the feet of the crowd, composed of people chanting "Hey hey! Ho ho! Myles Brand has got to go!" and of those just trying to get a glimpse of the action.

Housing alliance receives award for helping disabled

Some people with disabilities spend their entire lives renting an apartment or sharing a group home. Less than 1 percent of people with disabilities own their own homes, as opposed to 66 percent of all Americans, according to the Indiana Institute on Disability and Community. The Back Home in Indiana Alliance, coordinated by IU's Indiana Institute on Disability and Community, is working to change that. And the program has received high marks for its efforts; the Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) recently named it the "Best of the Best" in terms of housing programs.

Evening childcare available for student-parents

Beginning next semester, evening childcare will be available for student parents. The program is a combination effort between Returning Student Services, Sunflower Daycare Cooperative and the IU Daycare Support Center. IU is affiliated with several daycare facilities, such as Campus Children's Center and Campus View Childcare Center, but the need for evening childcare has been a growing concern.

Panel explores risks faced by sororities

A 19-year-old sorority woman attends a formal dance held in Chicago. She consumes too much alcohol and dies. Who should be held liable for her death?

Science building not that important

In his State of the University address, IU President Myles Brand announced a new multidisciplinary science building as IU's first "capital priority," estimated to cost $60 million. This comes on the heels of approval for the new Kelley School of Business Corporate and Graduate Center, which will cost $30 million.

The monolithic myths

Columbia City, Ind., has always prided itself on its Christmas decorations. Each year of my young life, I was shunted off to the Whitley County Courthouse on Christmas Eve to sit on Santa's lap and receive a bag of oranges and a bag of haystacks (those vanilla creamy things covered in chocolate). The line would be long because everyone did the same thing.

Lessons from a jail cell

Recently I had the privilege of spending the evening with the fine, upstanding inmates of the Tippecanoe County Jail. Was I there on business, possibly for a story, you might ask? With a hearty laugh I respond no, I was not there merely to chat with the good people of Cell Block Seven.

Reaching a compromise

The Listening Tour officially began last week with a discussion including members of the newly formed IU Campus Greens. As a growing national political party and one with a strong campus and community presence, IU Greens wanted to see their party's beliefs and concerns addressed in the IDS opinion pages.

Festival combines music, religion
