Developer halts convention center plans By Samantha Guzman • Contributing Writer The proposed hotel and convention center, to be built along with UNT's new stadium, is on hold because of financing problems. The project, a joint venture between the city of Denton and developer John Q. Hammons, is at a standstill while the devel- oper continues to seek the $50 million needed to build the hotel. The city has already set aside money to build the convention center, Mayor Mark Burroughs said. w "We will not get involved in raising the funds to build the ho- tel because thaf s really the key thing the developer has to get," Burroughs said. The proposed project would provide the city with many eco- nomic benefits, including sales taxes. "If you have a conference center and you bring people from other cities into your town, they tend to shop in your stores^ said Linda Ratliff, the city director of economic development. UNT and the city would also reap benefits from the proposed hotel becaus...

C ties police struggle with K2 problem Story by Amber Bell • Contributing Writer K2, a form of synthetic marijuana, has been banned for use in a handful of Texas cities, but there may be a statewide ban coming as soon as January. Many area officials say the sooner the better. "There is no safe way to smoke K2 because there is no way to control the amount they would get," Said Michael Yudizky, public health manager for the Texas Poison Con- trol Center, in an e-mail. The high obtained by some users of K2 has been shown to be similar to the effects of a marijuana overdose and has the tendency to cause severe reactions that users are not prepared to handle? and many users are too scared to seek help. "Someone is going to die from this," said Ryan Grelle, the media relations officer for the Denton Po- lice Department. "It's a good possibility because they get scared, freaked out. ... It's a chemical. It's not supposed to be inhaled. Don't be using this stuff." Sold in many smoke shops ...

rate. Among the 119 calls about K2 to the center between Jan. 1 and July 14 were 22 indications of vomiting, 12 of hallucinating and 3 indications of coma. Many users became extremely agitated, nervous and have problems breathing, accord ing to the data. In June, an Iowa teen who smoked K2 appar- ently suffered a panic attack and fatally shot himself, according to the Des Moines Register. Police say countless other teens and young adults have used the drug as a catalyst to get high, only to land in the hospital not under- standing how they got there» According to the Texas center, 89 percent of the exposures during the first half of this year were from inhalation, with abuse listed as the reason. Only 6 percent of the exposures were said to be unintentional. "If someone has any symptoms, they are sent to the ER for IV fluids and benzodiazepine," Yudizky said. Police want people to call them if they need help, and fear that young people will not do so because they are scared or don'...

Dorm staff to advise on students in fall semester This fall, help for students living on campus will be less than a phone call away. For some, it may even be as close as next door. Students will be able to meet regularly with their hall directors, assistant hall directors and leaders of the freshman seminars to get answers to their questions, help planning their schedules and de- termine their college direction. There is some overlap between staff—30 hall directors and oth- er full-time Housing staff members will serve as advisers, and 20 of those will teach the new freshman seminars courses, otherwise known as UCRS. Other UNT faculty and staff will serve as advis- ers or lead classes, said Eugene Frier, the coordinator for residential education and assessment and a student adviser. "If s really there for undecided students so they have someone friendly, knowledgeable and close they can talk to instead of setting up an appointment with another academic adviser," Frier said. Althoug...

Freshman seminars to help students receive direction Freshmen will get a little extra guidance as they dive into college life this fall. A series of freshman seminars is being offered in the fall course catalogue. The 36 types of courses cover topics including leadership, school policies, study habits and test taking. There are other courses that help a student determine why they are in college and help them decide on a major and future career. Advisers pointed students toward these classes during summer orientation. All freshmen are welcome to apply, but the courses are designed for students with undeclared majors and those seeking some advice on their college direction. "We're hoping to diminish some of the freshman angst by creat- ing a true learning community with this course and two more paired courses," said Elisabeth Warren, director of housing. Seminars are considered a three-hour credit class, including tests and required journaling. The courses cost the same as a regular ...

Lighting project continues near General Academic Building A project to install new, better lighting near Terrill Hall and the General Academic and Business Administra- tion buildings is well underway. The more efficient lights, to be installed this year, will replace the high-mast lighting that was put up in the 1980s and is now partially blocked by growing trees and expanding building projects. The new lights are expected to beautify the campus and to make students and faculty members feel secure as they walk from late-night classes, activities and work. "I think they will make the campus feel safer and more lively at night," said Christina Day a drawing and painting senior. Day Used to work for technology support at night and she said she didn't like to walk in the dark. With the new human scale lighting, the pathways will be brighter. The first phase of the campus lighting project began by the Willis Library in 2007. The lights on the Library Mall will eventually be the standard...

Although the ribbon cutting ceremony won't take place until October, the new Life Science Complex is open lor use. The first phase of the building project, which allows research- ers who deal with plant science, biochemistry and physiology to move their labs into the new building, was completed in July. "[The researchers] have found the building to be just ideal for the work they need to do," said Art Goven, the biology depart- ment chairman. If You Build It... Goven and other university officials hope this new building will help draw in more researchers and with them, more fund- ing. "We're using this laboratory space to attract senior scientists that have a significant amount of grant money that also dove- tail with our research expertise that we currently have/" he said. "And so we're using the building to take our entire program to the next level." The building, at completion, will have cost around $40 mil- lion. It has about 85,000 square feet of space. It was built with the p...

UN'' expects more students For the 2010 to 2011 terms, the university expects a 2 percent growth rate, which means 720 more students will be on cam- pus and current students could feel the difference. "It looks like we're on track to meet that and potentially exceed it," said Troy Johnson, vice provost and associate vice president for enrollment management. Some of the new students will be first-time freshman and graduate students. The univer- sity also expects a 1 to 2 percent increase in transfer students. Enrollment at UNT has increased by 11 per- cent over the last five years. Optimized efforts to reach out to students could mean continued growth. "We are up in applications," Johnson said. Some key factors for enrollment growth are increased efforts to communicate with students at other universities and community colleges as well as the reputation and attractiveness of university programs, he said. Additionally, the new 2+2+2 grant from the Texas Higher Education Coordinating B...

Serving Denton, Texas* arw tn^World since "... I'm happy to say that this is indeed one of those establishments 'not to be missed' no matter how far you may have to drive to get there. The books, almost universally in good condition, are quite nicely displayed. Every subject is covered in great depth iwth labels and subheadings . . . meticulously shelved and the titles represent a wide scope, from the more common (of which we saw a few) to the more interesing (of which we saw many). The lower level covers an area equal in size to the main level and a mezzanine is also quite large. If there is anything else I can say to tempt you to visit this store I would certainly do so but perhaps the best plug I can give this shop is that I walked out with several volumes, all quite reasonably priced, and had we had additional time, I could easily have filled my trunk. RS. Don't miss some of the titles behind the locked glass cases." - The Used Book Lover's Guide to the Central States "Recycled...

Coordinator shows care for students, fellow employees Story and photos by Samantha Guzman • Contributing Writer Emily Boykin thinks she has the best boss in the world. As the student assistant to Laurea Dunahoe, the special event coordinator for the president's office, Boykin has had nothing but extraordinary experiences in her job. "It's like a blessing and a curse to have her as my boss be- cause I know no one will ever compare to her because she is so phenomenal/' Boykin said. Dunahoe has been working for UNT for more than five years. Her responsibility is to coordinate the almost 200 events the president hosts every year. She arranges every event from commencement ceremonies every semester to events such as the "Really, Let's Talk" student session with the president ev- ery year. From the color of napkins to the name of every single guest invited, there is no detail that Dunahoe does not oversee. "I always get butterflies before every event because I want it to go well, and I'm...

ing career counseling, Dunahoe instead got into event planning. After working for Delta Air Lines for 14 years, planning events and also doing some career counseling, Dunahoe saw a position open at UNT. "I thought, 'Ah ha, my alma mater has a position that I'm inter- ested in and would really enjoy/" Dunahoe said. After years of work, Dunahoe has seen the university change. "The scope of the events have increased significantly" Dunahoe said. "As the university has grown and recognition around the na- tion has grown, so have the events." She said growth in recognition has not changed the size of the events, but they have much more importance and high profile guests. With so many events, Dunahoe, who is engaged and currently planning her own wedding, has to adapt to a schedule that is always different and demands endless hours with constant deadlines. "You can have weeks that are fairly slow or you can have weeks where there are seven in a week and sometimes even three events in one ...
