Men look to avoid Spiders’ season sweep

Coach Karl Hobbs knows his GW men’s basketball team always has its hands full with Richmond. The Spiders have defeated the Colonials three times in a row dating back to January 2004, with the most recent loss coming on Jan. 22. Richmond coach Jerry Wainwright “always has something up his sleeve,” Hobbs mused earlier this […]

The man who won’t back down

His allegations of defamation, trespassing and unjust bargaining have all been dismissed by a judge. He owes the University more than $36,000 and his bank accounts were frozen. Now, after four of his five complaints against GW have been dismissed, Donald Kreuzer, neighbor to the 729-bed Ivory Tower, is making one last stand. Since 1973, […]

CVS fraud prompts concerns over GWorld use

University officials are warning students to closely monitor their GWorld accounts after a CVS employee stole $1,378 from 16 students last month. The current system does not adequately protect users from fraudulent charges, University Police Chief Dolores Stafford said. From Jan. 10 to Jan. 22, an employee at the CVS on 22nd and E streets […]

Column: The case for recycling

After reading the long overdue and inspiring article, “Getting dirty for a cause (Feb. 3, p. 1),” it is nice to see that there are some students who think that recycling is worth more than a five cent return from your beer can. Coming from the hippie commie pinko city of San Francisco, I have […]

Area restaraunts cited for health violations, including rodents

The D.C. Department of Health closed 15 local restaurants in the past three years, including three using the GWorld system, because of sanitation problems including rodent infestation, cooking at the wrong temperature and using unclean equipment. Three of the 15 restaurants, Panda Caf?, Mehran Restaurant and Papa John’s Pizza, which are all located along Pennsylvania […]

Column: Still the right man

Is President George W. Bush still the “Right Man,” as author and presidential speechwriter David Frum branded him in the wake of 9/11? Public dissatisfaction with the Iraq War damaged this image, and perhaps undermined Bush’s place in history. However, after the success of the Iraqi elections and a powerful State of the Union address, […]

GW faces weekend test

The loss still stings GW women’s basketball coach Joe McKeown. Well, two losses actually. “I wasn’t sure if you were talking about the Eagles or La Salle,” said McKeown, a lifelong Philly fan. In the grand scheme of things, the Colonials’ 65-53 loss to the Explorers last week probably hurts more than the Birds’ Super […]

Officials set to raise tuition

Since at least 1990, GW has never had a year without passing a tuition increase. The year 2005 will be no different for sophomores and juniors, who may pay as much as $32,515 in tuition next year. On Friday, University officials will ask the Board of Trustees, the institution’s highest decision-making body, to raise tuition […]

Column: Executive action

As rewarding as it is to see the positive words of Will Dempster in The Hatchet’s Jan. 27 (“Fix the inept Senate,” p. 4) issue and Kathy Elie’s Letter to the Editor (“Keep focus,” Feb. 3, p. 5) of this past Thursday, actions and results speak louder than words. I was glad to see that […]
