Fox House to close

Joseph Ramos lived in the Fox House for about six months last year. He described the building as "a gift from God." "It was a beautiful place," he said. "It was a good idea, but it was like a zoo." A recovery residence for people living with HIV and AIDS, the Fox House will be shut down by the Center of Behavioral Health, its property manager, when its five-year lease ends in December. The house is widely known to have suffered from financial and management woes since opening in 1996.

Activist celebrates 1-month stay in tree

Tracy "Dolphin" McNeely has spent an entire month without the comforts of a solid roof, electricity or plumbing. In that time, she's braved blowing rains, intensely humid heat and even a snowfall. McNeely celebrated her one-month anniversary Sunday in a Brown's Woods tree. Despite the elemental exposure and increasing negativity from developers and the landowner, the 19-year-old environmentalist said her commitment is unwavering.

College thought on a sunny day

As the lecture-became-debate hopelessly, endlessly wages on, I carelessly glance out the window. Orientation student employees of some sort pass by, laughing and smiling as the sun bounces off the well-defined shoulders of their red T-shirts. The girl has shoulder-length curling brown hair, khaki slacks and more white on her teeth than Darryl Strawberry's gums. The gentlemen wear identical short-cropped hair, one with a few tips dyed blond, indicating within corporate regulation that he's "hip." They sport matching khaki shorts and hundred-dollar sandals. All four look like they've been at the HPER every day since their freshmen orientations. There's not a ripple of leftover body fat, a blemish on the dark-tanned skin or any justifiable reason to spend that much money on sunglasses.

UITS takes steps to increase security

More than 2,500 students had their names and Social Security numbers downloaded from the Office of the Bursar by an unknown international source in February. In light of the security breach, the board of trustees passed a resolution during their meeting two weeks ago to increase the security of IU's computing system.

A word for lost friends

In my darkest nights, I think there's a vengeful god, one who receives pleasure from prematurely removing the best and brightest, hell-bent on the destruction of this planet. From a curled lump on my couch, I scream at him through tear-filled eyes, asking what gives him the right to meddle with others' happiness.

The road less traveled

While Bloomington during most of the year can aptly be described as a giant ball of energy flying toward the glass window of my sanity, summers are a lot different down here. Just a few days into the summer semester and I can already see the effects.

History repeating for Hoosiers

FISHERS, Ind. -- The Hoosiers were eliminated from the 1999 American Collegiate Hockey League Division II National Championship Tournament because of a tiebreaker. IU and Michigan State ended their battle in a 3-3 tie. Michigan State had scored 18 goals in the tournament, while IU had 17. So, despite the tie, the Spartans advanced to the semifinals. The same scenario unfolded again this year.

Finals to present challenge

Five games for all the marbles. The hockey team knows as much about pressure as any other team in the country, but this is the culmination of every goal the team has been talking about all year. Of course, it's not going to be an easy road to victory in the Division II American Collegiate Hockey Association's national championship.

Hockey team sweeps RMC

The hockey team swept Robert Morris College in its final home series of the season this weekend. The Hoosiers crushed the Eagles 9-1 Friday and squeaked out a 6-5 victory Saturday. "We were just trying to get out of there with a win and no disqualifications," assistant coach and general manager Alex Kyrias said of the weekend.

IU looks to rebound in final home game

Fresh off a heartbreaking loss to Miami (Ohio) for the Midwest Collegiate Hockey League conference championship, the hockey team plays host to its final home series of the season against Chicago's Robert Morris College at 7:30 p.m. today and Saturday at the Frank Southern Center.
