4 October 27, 2004 Campus Life The Rambler Teresa Alcala Cuisine on a college budget: Billy Miner s offers burgers at a bargain During the early 1990s, downtown Fort Worth started looking like a new place. The opening of Sundance 11 movie theater _______________ and several restaurants started a growth trend that contin- ues to this day. Downtown had suf- fered in the 1970s when business growth was poor and downtown department stores packed up and headed for the suburban malls, but change was on the way. Even before the turnaround of downtown, however, a small ham- burger joint with peanut shells on the floor was going strong in Sundance Square. Billy Miner's Saloon is located in the heart of downtown Fort Worth. The restau- rant is located on 150 Third St., on the corner of Houston and Third streets and is named after the infa- mous and notorious train robber, Billy Miner. The restaurant is a typ- ical bar and grill, in a saloon like atmosphere. Today, the peanut shells are no more...

6 October 27, 2004 Sports The Rambler Rams won't go quietly After slow start Rams can take second place Phil McNeary STAFF WRITER No one likes living in a shadow. That's what the men's soccer program feels like they are doing. With so much hype about the women's team and their quest for con- ference supremacy, the men say they are on the hunt as well. If the men win their last three games they could lock in the No. 2 seed in the conference tourney. "The girl's team has come a long way," said Rene Mercado, a junior for- ward. "Compared to where they used to be, they're doing a great job." Jose Melendez, another junior forward, said playing in the shadow of the women's team does not bother him. "We're thrilled that the girls are doing such a great job, but we have to find our own way," he said. "The only thing that motivates us is us." Mercado echoed that notion. "When we're on the field, all we have is each other, no one else," he said. "We play for each other." Both players, along w...

Since their heartbreaking loss to Houston Baptist, the No. 8 team in the nation, in five games in the Red River Athletic Conference Crossover Tournament on Oct. 1, the Lady Rams have been peerless. The Lady Rams have not lost a game, as they have downed all opposition in 3-0 fashion. The hot streak comes at a perfect time, right at the heart of conference play.

The Rambler Campus Life November 3, 2004 5 Maintenance worker handles more that just tools Hank Sinatra STAFF WRITER There are a million stories in the naked city, and here's one of them. Well, perhaps hundreds in this case. Although Texas Wesleyan doesn't employ a million people, there are interesting people all around us if we just take the time to get to know them. One such person is Luke Nichols from the maintenance department. What, you might ask, will be so interesting about a guy in maintenance? Nichols is, by his own admission, "Just a grunt. I do what they teli me." But this smil- ing and pleasant man is very humble. He came to Wesleyan about two and a half years ago when a friend told him of a full-time position. He previously worked as a manager for Lockheed, traveled the country as a country music entertainer and is the owner and operator of a recording studio. Lonesome Prairie Recordings. Nichols said he ended up at Wesleyan because the recording business fell off after...

The Lady Rams' newly implemented offense pays quick dividends as the Lady Rams continue to sweep matches. Lady Rams stretch winning streak to 13 VOLLEYBALL Marc Nettles STAFF WRITER The Texas Wesleyan volleyball team extended its winning streak to 12 matches last week with 3- 0 sweeps of Paul Quinn and the University of Texas at Dallas, improving their overall record to 25-3, including 13-2 in the Red River Athletic Conference. Neither of the two opponents could hold the game longer than an hour as the Lady Rams easily breezed past them. Using a fairly new philosophy that spreads the offense around the court, the Lady Rams defeated the Lady Tigers (30-10, 30-13, 30-11) on Oct. 26 at home and dropped Paul Quinn to 1-11 in con- ference play.

Whether they're on the banners along Rosedale Street, on the university catalogs or on the Wesleyan Web site, these words are almost as common as the Texas Wesleyan University flame logo. Indeed, the university is small, a characteristic that makes it a target of many jokes. But if you've ever sat in a class with 299 other students or had to wait in line at your professor's office door hoping to catch her before her one office hour has expired, then the word "small" can sound very inviting.

The Rambler Campus Life November 10, 2004 5 Students take their studies abroad to the U.K. During the second half of the summer, Wesleyan offers classes in the United Kingdom. In summer 2004, students could choose to take the heritage of British writers, creative writing, or the Celtic contribution to civilization and religion. Five students took a course for English and humanities credit while two opted to audit the course. The course included excursions across the entire length of England, to Scotland and to Wales. Following is one student s viewpoint of the trip. * Hank Sinatra OK, OK, I guess it's time for someone to just put the details of the Wesleyan trip to England down on paper. I am sure that everyone who went is getting the same ques- tions: Did you have fun? Would you go again? What was the food like? What were the people like? Should I go next spring or summer?
