'Patrol cart' saves money, improves safety

If you have noticed a nice, new golf cart with a blue light on top patrolling the campus, please be aware it's not new.  Instead, the patrol cart is a refurbished unit previously used by Parking Services.
  University Police personnel re-painted and adapted the unit for campus patrol, saving the cost of a new cart and improving access to events and locations inaccessible by car.  The electric cart is more environmentally friendly than an automobile, also.

Paul Galbraith concert to benefit KASU
On Saturday, Oct. 29, the Fowler Center will present classical guitarist Paul Galbraith in concert at 7:30 p.m. Proceeds from the concert will benefit KASU, the public broadcasting service of ASU. The internationally renowned musician has been working since the 1980s towards expanding the technical limits of his instrument. By exchanging the traditional guitar for the eight-string Brahms Guitar, which he helped to develop, Galbraith found the ideal instrument with which to interpret the challenging classical transcriptions from his personal repertoire.  A Grammy Award nominee, he has also been featured on NPR’s “All Things Considered” and “Performance Today.”  Tickets are available through the Central Box Office at (870) 972-2781 or online at http://tickets.astate.edu. For more details, contact Todd Rutledge at (870) 972-2807 or by e-mail at trutledge@astate.edu.
