y Photo by Jun Ma/Staff Photographer P J / A t0i€ity*cSunal UNT Graduate Finds Passion for Civics While Kevin Roden may be a new face on the Denton City Council after winning the District 1 election in May his reputa- tion as an active figure in the community precedes him. Also the assistant director of student life for the Texas Academy of Mathematics and Science at UNT, Roden was a promi- nent member of the Denton community long before his name was ever printed on a ballot. He grewup in Ohio, and in 1992, he made the trip down to Denton to major in jazz studies at UNT's College of Music. After a year and a half, he said the competitive job market musicians face wasn't for him, and he changed his major to political science. Roden said his road to the city council began after the real estate company United Equities purchased the historical buildings along Fry Street only to demolish them. "I think it caused a lot of folks about my age, who were coming into their own in the city, to ...

Photo by Corrisa Jackson/Senior Staff Writer Program Gives Men Faith, Second Chances Off North Loop 288 in Aubrey sits a nearly 20-acre stretch of land, home to a place where men find purpose, faith and second chances. The Denton Freedom House helps men get back on their feet and introduces them to Christianity "We're not just a social service," said founder Corey Adams. "It's a Christian men's home that ministers to those that have suffered from substance abuse, have been homeless and those being released from jail or prison." After staying in the home for 180 calendar days and working for 180 hours, the men are eligible for an internship set up by the house. Adams also owns and operates Zera Coffee Company and furniture store The Back Porch, and sets up entry jobs for the men in the program. The men are eligible to move up in the business over time. If desired, those in the program can choose to work somewhere else. Previously a drug addict, Adams said he became a Christian in 199...

The Graveyard Shift While the rest of the world sleeps, Natalie Marie Harrison and Stephen Laster are hard at work. Harrison works as a delivery driver for Jimmy John's on Fry Street, while Laster mans the night shift at 7-Eleven on West Oak Street. Harrison, an undeclared junior at UNT, said she has worked the grave- yard shift for two and a half years because it fits her school schedule. "I am a night person, so it works for me," she said. "I deliver from 10 until 3:15, and then closing takes a few more hours. After that I go to my 8 a.m. classes and I'm more awake than 1 would be if I slept all night." For Harrison, the excitement of working the late nights comes after 2 a.m. when all of Fry Street's bars close. "After last call, everyone comes into Jimmy's," she said. "It's funny serving drunk people, but you wouldn't believe how often we have to call the cops." For Laster, working the graveyard shift wasn't a choice. "Honestly, it was just the position I was hired for," Laster ...

New Signs of Advertising In recent years, many businesses have replaced immobile 50-foot billboards with frantic teenagers flipping 3-foot-wide signs as a new means of marketing. Raising the eyebrows of countless Denton drivers, these employees are found in front of companies throwing signs in the air, dancing with the sign in hand or anything else to get noticed. Sign spinning is a form of "guerilla marketing," a term coined by ad agency executive Jay Conrad Levinson, and acts as an unconventional way of promoting a business. According to guerilla marketing franchise AArrow Advertising, this tactic focuses on energy, imagination and targeting people in unexpected places. Guerilla marketing is used to lure in customers during tax season, said Curtis Lucky, a six-year employee of Liberty Tax Service on Fort Worth Drive. Liberty Tax hires four people during the months of January through April to stand outside in a Statue of Liberty costume and do whatever they have to do to get people...

Six UN" Alumni Create Coffee Career What began as an idea cultivated by six friends for an artist-friendly space seven years ago is now one of Denton's most popular coffee shops and art venues. Tommy Rose and Olivia Emile are the only remaining founders of Art Six still working at the shop. The six founders knew each other from studying in UNT's theatre department. They gathered on Sunday mornings on Rose's front porch to eat donuts, drink coffee and look through newspaper job listings. One morning, they came up with the idea of starting a coffee shop that would serve Denton's art community. "We did that for a couple weeks, and then we got to talking. Wouldn't it be cool if...,' 'Wouldn't it be fun if..Rose said. "And we just figured, you know, we're young, we have time. And if we're gonna fail, let's fail now while we're young." Each of the six took on a different aspect of getting the shop started. Rose was in charge of finding a location for the coffee shop. "I took part in setti...

Interview Wear Opinion Presentation is important when going to an interview. The first impression made on an employer can be made by what is worn, so here are some basic tips. Tips for Women Stick with conservative colors for an outfit and accessories. Any jewelry worn should be simple and not flashy. This means no feather earrings, door-knockers or other kinds of costume jewelry. It's okay to play it safe and forego jewelry alto- gether. Blazers with slacks or a knee-length skirt are acceptable. It's not impossible to incorporate some color into a professional outfit a vibrant blouse is an option — but don't dress over the top. Tips for Men Depending on the job, wearing a button-down shirt with a tie and slacks or a suit will be appropriate. When in doubt, go for the dressier option. If going with the suit, shoot for black, navy or dark gray Along with the suit pants or slacks, wear dark socks. Accessories like watches are acceptable as long as they are not distracting. When it com...

Ways to Prepare a Portfolio Resumes Can Make or Break Applying Opinion First impressions are important, espe- cially when looking for a job. However, the first impression made on a corporate recruiter usually isn't when they meet applicants. It's during the four or five seconds they spend looking at resumes sent to them. There are many do's and don'ts when it comes to writing a professional resume, and most mistakes are easy to avoid. Formatting Use a resume template only as a refer- ence. Where there is one lazy person, there are many lazy people, and when stacks of resumes are formatted the exact same way, it's likely they will all share the same disappointing fate. Display past work experience, educa- tion and other relevant information in bulleted lists. A resume isn't an essay, so don't write it in paragraphs. Length Sizes of resumes are important, and n this case the shorter the better. No one wants to spend 10 minutes looking over a six-page resume. A concise, clear resume is...

\ <? Get Rid of Junk atThis Stay-at-Home Job Sometimes making money can be done less than five feet outside resi- dents' garages. For those interested in losing unwanted goods and gaining quick cash, hosting a garage sale is a great option. Here are some tips on how to make the sale a success. Save the Date Garage sales work best when people know about them in advance. It may sound like common sense, but plan- ning ahead will do wonders for the number of the sale's customers. A week prior to the sale, put some advertise- ments in a local newspaper's classified section. Every city does it differently, so go on the city's website and find out how much it costs to place an ad. People who are serious about "garage sailing" will look at this. Another easy way to advertise is through Craigslist. Picture This Listing specifics on big-ticket items and adding pictures will make people more aware that the sale is well orga- nized. Instead of just writing "TV," write "24 in. Toshiba plasma ...

Patrolling the Streets Although Denton is home to two major universities, Denton police officers say most crime in the city rarely comes from students. The Denton Police Department's group of about 160 sworn officers patrols 12 districts within the city to counter crime. Uniformed officers are split into four shifts, with each one assigned to a district. Rigdon's Regulations Officer Ryan Rigdon, one of the newest members of the DPD, is assigned to District 12. The district consists of the Loop 288 area, the MedPark Station, Denton Regional Hospital and the surrounding offices and apartment complexes. Rigdon said officers generally work one district for about a year before they bid on their next post. He said this allows every officer to have a better understanding of the city so they can back up fellow offi- cers more effectively. Once assigned to a district, Rigdon said it's critical to forge ties with residents. I spend a lot of time down here just getting to know the people," he ...

ingFl Denton Department Keeps Residents Safe At Fire Station 3 on McCormick Street, Brian Orosco reclines in a chair and watches "The Punisher" while drinking a Coke. He can only enjoy this moment of relaxation for so long before a call from the dispatcher alerts him and his other team members of a medical emergency. A day in the life of a firefighter consists of 24 hours of excitement and down time, as they dedicate their lives to helping others. Stan Pruett, the station's usual driver, said working as a firefighter and para- medic is the best job n the world. "Even though it might be a corny answer, it's still true," Pruett said. "1 get paid for helping people." Life as a Firefighter Kevin Hewell said fighting struc- ture fires is the most exciting part of the job. The most challenging aspect, he said, is trying to stay calm with patients who are aggressive. Beyond the Fire Truck Jimmy Waggoner said he has been a firefighter for 31 and a half years.

0 UNT s Newest Addition Brings Business When the new stadium officially opens in the fall, the number of avail- able obs in Denton will Increase. The $78 million structure will help bring 11 jobs on a variety of fronts. The hundreds of construction jobs created from assembling the Mean Green Stadium is a sign of things to come, said Eric Capper, the UNT media associate athletic director for media relations. "Those workers come here every day working feverishly to meet their deadlines so everything is finished on time," he said.
