Newcomer to promote album

"I think it's the finest work I've ever done … it's a little darker, a little edgier …" This is how Carrie Newcomer describes her latest album, The Age of Possibility, for which she is currently touring. The tour kicks off a two-month, 60-date stint with a concert at 8 p.m. Friday at the Buskirk-Chumley Theatre, 114 E. Kirkwood Ave. The performance is being filmed by WTIU for an hour-long PBS special.

Jazz Fables begins new fall season

Bear's Place, 1316 E. Third St., swung to the sounds of Jazz Fables 5:30 p.m. Thursday. The 11-year-old tradition continues Thursdays this fall with a variety of local and regional musicians gathering to jam for a dedicated and diverse crowd.

Watch out bookstores, E-books are now here

Forget about flipping through a book: more and more people are scrolling through them. The electronic publishing industry is growing, thanks to new technology and online school books.

A sexual orientation to IU

Welcome back or welcome for the first time -- you've gone through orientation or you are an old hand, a veteran of getting to class with no one watching your every move. College is a wonderful experience either way.

This one's for Gary

January 1998, I'm on the futon in Chuck's apartment, reading. Between Vanity Fair (the novel, not the magazine) and the admission materials for the School of Library and Information Science, I read drug labels and information materials from my excellent pharmacists at Kroger Seminary Square.


The metaphorical stuff is hitting the fan in the Internet universe. The title of "Most Downloaded Woman" is currently being debated, and all kinds of people are losing sleep.

Dissent - Government is not the correct answer

When Mayor John Fernandez offered to help the Bloomington Area Arts Council resolve its financial woes, the plan sounded like a good thing. Save the council and a downtown theater, the mayor seemed to say, and you'll save this town. Yet that is a narrow view of the many things Bloomington has to offer, including other venues for the performing arts. Many organizations and businesses struggle to pay operating expenses, and all of those are important to at least some members of the community.

Free jazz concert raises awareness of music community

The Jazz from Bloomington All-Stars concert Tuesday night displayed exactly what jazz music is all about. It was an informal jam session that relied completely upon improvisation, making it extremely personal in nature as if the performers were communicating with the audience with each note.

Associate athletic director appointed

Associate Athletic Director Mary Ann Rohleder announced Wednesday that Amelia Noel will replace Elizabeth "Buzz" Kurpius as associate athletic director for academic affairs, effective Jan. 1.

Republican road trip

Thousands of Hoosiers gathered at an Indianapolis airport hangar Wednesday afternoon to see their hero of the new millennium. For a group of 25 IU students, it was the opportunity of a lifetime.

Expansion riles residents

Tension and emotion filled the air at the Unitarian Universalist Church, as Bloomington residents meted out the consequences of a plan to expand State Road 46.

Hoosiers look to influences to prepare for N.C. State

When the football team opens its season against North Carolina State Saturday at Memorial Stadium, it could be as close as the Hoosiers will get to playing defending national champion Florida State or offensive powerhouse Brigham Young University.

Freshman middle blocker overcomes adversity

To anyone who doesn't know her well, freshman Melissa Brewer looks like any other student and just another player on the volleyball court. But if they saw her at night, after her contacts have been taken out, they'd find a different story.

Consider the actions, not the lifestyle

The other day, my father sent me an e-mail I had seen a few times before. The first time I read it, I deleted it. When I received it this time, I kept it because it piqued my interest.

Buskirk-Chumley needs city help

Few would disagree that culture is important in any society. But these days, a time when business ventures are turning every worthwhile exploration into a plain-faced corporate scheme, a little bit of culture can go a long way. Fewer and fewer young adults are leaving their Webcams and Playstations for the theater. Bloomington is a town that prides itself on the arts and is considered an oasis of culture in a state where little exists. So it is time the city government stepped in to help the faltering Buskirk-Chumley Theatre and the all-important Bloomington Area Arts Council.

False alarm results in alcohol violation

Late Tuesday night an accidental phone call to 911 from Theta Chi, 1440 N. Jordan Ave., drew IU police officers to the fraternity to make sure there was no problem and ended with officers discovering alcohol at the house, police said. Officers arrived in room 202, from which the phone call was made. The residents told the officers there was no problem, but officers found alcohol when they went inside.
