Top Headlines

Slapshot at Greatness
Jack Clark, Pete Newell, Bob Milano and Lynn "Pappy" Waldorf. Few men have defined a position as these four men have. Like expert craftsmen, they have shaped and molded the title of coach into a place of prestige, if not reverence.

Robotic Race to the Finish

The Devil Is in the Details
It's that time again, kiddies. That's right, the brand spanking new UC Berkeley 2020 Long Range Development Plan is right around the corner! I know, I know, it snuck up on me too. It seems like only yesterday that the 1990 LRDP was out, calling for the creation of up to 4,000 beds of student housing close to campus by 2005 and outlining all of the university's plans. Sigh. How time flies when you don't give a damn.

A Berkeley police officer shot and killed two pit bulls that were attacking another dog near People's Park yesterday afternoon, after their owner failed to get his attacking dogs under control.

Bear Witness ...With Mike Cavic
While my team's intramural basketball supremacy remains-Fantastic Four still undefeated-the rest of Cal's unscathed record holders got worked this past week-though it was no surprise to today's Bear Witness guest.
