Alpha Sig shocked by national's eviction notice

At 3 p.m. Tuesday, members of Alpha Sigma Phi gathered in their house for a meeting with Assistant Dean of Students Jim Gibson and IU Alpha Sig Corporation Board President Steve Pitts. They thought the meeting was about rush. Instead, members received an eviction notice, effective Sept. 6.


The Rock rules on 'Raw is War'

"Finally, The Rock has come back to Greensboro!" Those were the words that Duane Johnson, better known as World Wrestling Federation superstar The Rock, shouted Monday night in front of a sold-out crowd for Monday Night Raw in Greensboro, N.C. Raw, the highest rated show in cable television history, was pushed back from its usual time slot of 8-10 p.m. because of the U.S. Open Tennis Championship. But this did not stop the show from beating its leading competitor, Monday Night Nitro, in ratings for the 90th week in a row.


Money still a big issue in sports

Inequities in the national sports community leads to an inauspicious product on the playing field. While it seems as though several leagues have taken precautionary measures such as salary caps and exemptions to ensure and endorse team parity, our national pastime has fallen behind in producing a consistent, qualitative Major League Baseball federation.


Hoosiers return after 11-day camp

Eleven days away from home is a long time. Practicing football continuously for 11 days in Marshall, Ind., 90 minutes west of Indianapolis, can make the time seem even longer.

Appreciate, respect landscape

When you spend some time away from a familiar place, you appreciate it a bit more when you return. I hope that's the case for students as you return to our campus for the fall semester.


An adopted Hoosier

I ran into an old friend from my freshman year at a party the other night. It was strange, because seeing him again was like visiting a past life. We still see each other occasionally, but we've moved on from our days of living in Wright Quad.


Me Oh My O's is spice of downtown

Some like it hot, and that some would be me. If I'm in the mood for spicy food, I want it to be fiery. I don't want it to be palatable, I want it to challenge me. Spicy food, as chauvinistic as it might seem, is a test of my manhood and my ability to stand it.

Clubs feature 9 bands for Jammin' on Walnut Street

Two or three times a year, the clubs of downtown Bloomington join together and turn up the heat with music from local and regional bands. It is once again that time of year when the prolific local musical talent shakes and bakes Bloomington all night. This extravaganza of music, dance and booze is what has come to be called Jammin' on Walnut Street.



When environmentalists attack

After the successful "environmental" campaign against IU's proposed golf course last spring and the unsuccessful protests against the construction of Deer Park, a terrorist group named ELF (Earth Liberation Front) reared its ugly head by attacking property that members thought sat in the Lake Monroe watershed. Democrats such as Monroe County Commissioners Vice President Brian O'Neill seemed surprised.

Colts ready to improve themselves

INDIANAPOLIS ' Last season, quarterback Peyton Manning and a number of other key players helped Colts coach Jim Mora accomplish things he had never dreamed of. Mora won his first AFC East division crown. He coached the Colts to a 13-3 mark, tying the franchise mark for most wins in a season. Finally, he led Indianapolis to a 10-game improvement from his first 1998-1999 season.


Spinach to the rescue for health and convenience

There is nothing that puts a crimp in a healthful eating regime like the start of a new semester. The best of intentions are easily squelched by the need for expediency. Likewise, the ability to concentrate on the benefits of bran evaporates as the nightly reading list bulges beyond 200 pages.



College more than just career training

What are you here for in school? What are you here for in life? In a good college education the two questions are related. An education should prepare you for your whole life, not just a career. The voices advocating career preparation in the universities today are loud. Moreover, these loud voices are in danger of drowning out other voices ' voices of wisdom.
