Prayer meetings were held at Hawkinson collage, D i m n e n t C h a p e l , and the I n i e m a l i o n a l House of Prayer.

Several Hope students attended the Michigan stale republican convention this past weekend, where they participated in electing state chairs to represent the party. "(The state chairs] are the people who run the party on a day-to-day basis," said Jack Holmes, Hope professor of political science.

We have the opportunity for faculty and staff to live side by side with students in the residential living situation."

T h e concept of a theme house will be similar to, but slightly different from the language and Greek cottages. "Those are organizational houses and they c o m e out of an organization. T h e y fall under different regulations," said Assistant D e a n for Housing and Residential Life Kelly Burris Wesener.

Coffee bar opens with campus patrons in mind Lemonjello's takes over Till Midnight space, caters to Hope community Katie Taylor, Erin Wickens STAFF REPORTERS

T h e weather has been extremely cold, and Hope students are always looking for a way to warm up. C o f f e e has long been a popular solution and JP's, the c o f f e e shop on Eighth Street, has always been the most convenient and popular place to find it. Until now. W h e n students returned from Christmas break, they found that they no longer had to walk as far for that warm, inviting and social atmosphere of a c o f f e e shop. 'Till Midnight Bakery, on the corner of Ninth and College, had been transformed into L e m o n j e l l o ' s coffeehouse when it opened its doors on Jan. 4. The o w n e r is Matthew Scott, a 2 2 - y e a r - o l d H o p e g r a d u a t e and f o r m e r manager of 'Till Midnight. H e bought the bakery f r o m Spring Sweeny, w h o had contemplated selling the business f o r years. I had been bouncing around the idea f o r eight years, but it only took a matter of two months to actually get the place up and running," Scott said. "But I d o n ' t r e c o m m e n d that time f r a m e f o r a n y o n e . " T h e transformation f r o m bakery to c o f f e e house hangout began on Dec. 26, and was finished on Jan. 3. T h e white walls became bold statements with orange, yellow and blue paint. N e w front counters were installed and new furniture, including a big suede c o u c h for comfortable c o f f e e chats, was brought in. T h e result was a completely n e w and contemporary look, with only the shelves behind the counter surviving the renovation. I want it to be a place where people can gather," expressed Scott. Scott's d r e a m didn't actually take on the name L e m o n j e l l o ' s because he was particu-

larly fond of lemon-flavored Jell-O. In fact, as a vegan, he d o e s n ' t even eat Jell-O. " S o m e o n e j u s t g a v e m e the n i c k n a m e (Lemonjello) and it stuck," Scott explained. T h e creative look of Lemonjello's matches the names of many of its menu items. Of course, J P ' s as well as most o t h e r c o f f e e shops c o m m o n l y give their specialty house drinks unique names. At L e m o n j e l l o ' s , you can order a Peanut butter and Jelly (peanut butter and strawberry latte) or a Stress-Reliever (caramel, hazelnut and chocolate latte) f r o m the M o o d Menu. A winter drink menu offers espressos, lattes, and m o c h a s espec i a l l y m e a n t to w a r m the soul in c h i l l y weather. For non-coffee drinkers there are a variety of beverages including hot chocolate.

Someone just gave me the nickname (Lemonjello) and it stuck. -Matt Scott chai, flavored spritzers, and soda. T h e r e is even a soy menu with dairy-free drinks. Sarah Sterling ( ' 0 6 ) is a v e g a n and has worked at and visited c o f f e e shops all her life. Sterling claims she has never seen a soy menu advertised b e f o r e g o i n g to Lemonjello's. I think that it's great. I always have to ask if a place has soy and it makes me feel like a nuisance." O n e of the most asked f o r drinks is the G r e e n A r m y G u y S o d a , which is a green apple Jones soda with strawberry syrup. At the bottom of the glass is a souvenir plastic army man. C u s t o m e r s can expect to pay $ 2 to $4 f o r a drink, which doesn't differ much f r o m JP's, the Kletz, or most other restaurants.

Special touches like these set Lemonjello's apart f r o m J P ' s (though the n e w coffeehouse only has 21 syrup flavors as opposed to J P ' s 31). An important difference between the t w o businesses is that Scott saw the need f o r a place to s h o w c a s e local musical talent as well. In fact, the L e m o n j e l l o sign reads " C o f f e e . Music. L i f e . " It w a s always Matt (Scott)'s dream to have a c o f f e e shop that doubled as a venue," said Leslie Perales, w h o helped talk Scott into beginning the process of realizing his dream. T h e first night of music took place on Jan. 10. Scott played the acoustic guitar with his band T h e Fashion Club, followed by another local band called Joust. Perales recalled, "The place was packed with people. They were should e r t o s h o u l d e r a n d c o u l d barely m o v e ; it was great." Ryan attended that night and said, "They played updated music for people our age."

Scott is p l a n n i n g on several things to incorporate his so-close location with the students, including displaying Hope student art that he will rotate on and off the walls every couple of weeks. There are also plans to hold poetry readings. Another one of Scott's aspirations is something called "Music f o r Sitting on Floors," a singer-songwriter series that he hopes will take root in spring.

According to Myers, another peril includes being afraid of something even though a person really should not be. Yet, people still fear flying.

THEME from 1 will still be open to more students than the present system allows. U n d e r the current system students wishing to live in a cottage must be named to the cottage by the cottage resident assistant (RA).

Unique Insync dancers take to stage Katie Taylor STAFF REPORTER

Hope College is home to Michigan's only p r o f e s s i o n a l t a p and j a z z c o m p a n y , t h e InSync Dance Theatre. And at 8 p.m. on Friday and Saturday, Knickerbocker Theatre will hold InSync's annual concert. This year, InSync is made up of eight Hope student dancers under the direction of Rosie Barton-DeVries, w h o teaches tap at Hope and has been the c o m p a n y ' s director f o r t w o years. She is particularly excited about what this y e a r ' s group of dancers has to offer. "We are reaching a n e w level as a c o m pany," Barton-DeVries said. InSync w a s f o u n d e d in 1995 by Terri Filips and Dawn Mcllhargey Wigert. Filips is now a professor at Niagara University, and is a guest choreographer for InSync's concert. M c l l h a r g e y Wigert is H o p e ' s j a z z teacher. T h e w o m e n started the company to provide dancers with the chance to do professional level work. At its beginning, InSync included professional dancers but was eventually replaced by H o p e students, mostly f r o m the dance department. In April of each year, auditions are held for spots in the company. T h e y are open to any s o p h o m o r e , junior, or senior whether involved in H o p e ' s dance department or not. With usually between 4 0 and 6 0 dancers w h o audition and only 8 to 12 w h o get in, competition is extremely stiff.

While you are shopping, pick up a tube of the Lip Saver. Even anti-chap Blistex is petroleum-based, which can further dry out a parched pout. If you can't live without your lip gloss, try the Lip Tints, which come in several universally flattering shades. T h e most important accessory to invest in this season is a fashionable scarf. J B and M e offers a slew of styles that recently arrived f r o m N e w York. T h e " M i s s o n i " skinny scarves wrap around the neck several times and c o m e in f u n flashy colors destined to spice u p any wardrobe.

T h i c k sweaters are a must, but lighter weight merino wool and cashmere can insulate as well as look chic. For extra warmth, wear a stretch camisole underneath as a layering piece, such as the nylon/spandex tanks found at Banana Republic. T h e thin material adds warmth without weight so you d o n ' t look like you had a second cupcake. A fitted casual blazer functions as a fashion statement as well as an additional jacket. Button-down shirts with French cuffs and an extended lapel flatter this silhouette, or you can opt for a turtleneck underneath the blazer on exceptionally cold days. Add a little scarf, some snowready boots, dangly earrings — and y o u ' r e good to go! Brian Hanning, a senior currently studying in Washington, D.C., said layering w o r k s great for guys, too. "I usually wear a short-sleeved shirt underneath a sweater or button-down shirt in the winter," Hanning said. N o w you have no excuse for wearing p a ja ma s to class, even if they are your cuddliest, warmest item of clothing.

Wearing pajamas to class

You are what you wear. Not really, of course, but it doesn't hurt to make a good first impression! In college, clothing maintenance seems to go out the window. Dress shirts are thrown o n t o the floor, whites and darks get tossed into the same load, and some don't bother to wash their clothes at all. Dirty crumpled clothes definitely do not make a good first impression. Here are some basic tips to k e e p your wardrobe looking new. T h r e e tools t o k e e p c l o t h e s in t i p - t o p s h a p e •A lint tape roller (or keep masking tape handy) •A c l o t h e s brush (or a h a i r b r u s h with stiff bristles) •A clothes iron T h e F a b r i c Basics •Cotton—easily washable but will shrink if the fabric is not pre-washed and shrunk. •Linen—usually requires dry-cleaning, but this fabric can be hand washed cold and requires a lot of ironing. • W o o l — s h o u l d n e v e r be w a s h e d at h o m e ! Wool shrinks severely w h e n washed, it needs to be dry-cleaned. If you were to wash and dry a wool sweater, for example, it w o u l d shrink so small your Barbie could wear it! • R a y o n — c a n be washed by hand in w a r m water, but it is best to dry-clean. • S i l k — r a w silk can be washed by hand in cold water. Refined silks should be dry-cleaned. •Leather and Suede— Those new alligator skin boots will not do you any good if you have them treated with a waterproof coating. Suede should only be dry-cleaned. T h e style experts suggest steaming and brushing suede to get rid of scuffs and restore color. Quick Tips •To k e e p a wool, cashmere or cotton sweater looking its best, brush the fabric lightly with a clothes or hairbrush. This works also f o r fleece. •Use plastic or padded hangers rather than wire ones. • D o n ' t h a n g cotton sweaters to dry; the weight of the wet fabric will stretch the sweater out. Instead, lay it flat to dry. •Leather shoes and garments will mildew if they are d a m p ; keep them in a well-ventilated area. Laundry Time •Always separate the lights f r o m the darks! •Wash brightly colored items together. •Never w a s h blacks and whites together, the whites will become dingy and the blacks will take on a grayish hue. •Use bleach only on an all white load.

AKCHOF/ P H O T O S BY EMIILY H A Y E S An example of proper winter wear • R e m e m b e r that n e w blue j e a n s will bleed the first time they are washed. •Red garments bleed f o r several washes; so unless you want an a b u n d a n c e of pink socks, don't w a s h anything red with your whites! •Socks and underwear will last longer if you do not wash t h e m with jeans. Seeing Spots D o n ' t despair if you spill c o f f e e on your favorite white sweater, or if you accidentally wiped red lipstick on the collar of your shirt. Here are some lips that you m o m might suggest to get those spots out. •Gum: Either put the garment in the freezer until the g u m hardens and it can be peeled off, or d a b a little peanut butter on the g u m until it dissolves. •Tomato Sauce: U s e white vinegar and rinse

do it." For both girls wearing different a kind of p a j a m a s is only a

" M y favorite p a j a m a s are the ones that have m o n k e y heads," H a l f m a n said. Zylstra likes the color of the ocean. T h a t ' s w h y her favorite p a j a m a pants are blue and

light will also bleach a tea stain. •Grease and Oil: Apply dishwashing liquid to the area and let it set. •Ink: Ironically, as I was writing this article, my blue pen exploded all over my shirt. I used a cap-full of bleach, rubbing alcohol and hair spray to remove the stains.

I think a hat is good f o r covering i p messy hair in the morning.'* —TakayaUeno ('05)

For most of the ladies of at Hope, college life is not exactly easy. Especially the part of waking up at 7 in the morning to go to 8 or 9 o ' c l o c k classes. T h e r e are more than 1,700 girls on this c a m p u s and almost each and every o n e of them will concur. But there are also others that rather save their precious time and have an extra hour of sleep. How do they do this? Well, they go to their classes with the same clothes on that t h e y ' v e slept in — their favorite pajamas. Just ask s o p h o m o r e Abbi H a l f m a n ( ' 0 5 ) . "Usually I ' m just lazy and it's comfortable," H a l f m a n explained when asked of her reasons on choosing such an unorthodox style. 44 1 d o n ' t really care what people think about m e wearing p a j a m a s , " she added. For H a l f m a n , the tradition of wearing cotton sweats is not a n e w thing. Her j u n i o r year in high school, w a k i n g up early in the mornings became nothing short of a 44pain in the neck. Every Friday she g a v e herself extra time to sleep rather than shower and put on ordinary clothes. She decided to go to school wearing pajamas, making Fridays as relaxing as possible. It also became contagious. S o m e of her friends decided to j o i n in on the fun. "It started out as a j o k e . Then it progressively turned into a habit, and by my senior year there were only o n e or two d a y s when w e did not have a p a j a m a day." H a l f m a n reminisced. To think that H a l f m a n is the only girl on c a m p u s that is fashionably interesting will be incorrect. Natalie Zylstra ( 4 04) is not far behind her p a j a m a comrade, H a l f m a n . She too spends no time on dressing, though she d o e s n ' t believe that laziness has anything to do with wearing her p a j a m a s to classes. 441 think that it should b e c o m e a fashion because it represents c o n f i d e n c e , " Zylstra explained. H a l f m a n a g r e e d , 4 4 1 am not embarrassed at all of what I am wearing and I do not care what everybody else thinks. I just

navy. S o m e girls cannot allow themselves such a laid back style of clothing due to their fields of study. A s Zylstra's housemat. Shannon Gervel ( 4 04) explained, "I h a v e to look professional f o r my classes." Indeed, s o m e teachers d o n ' t appreciate that kind of fashion but some w o u l d regard it as normal expression. Shannon also pointed out that a lot of students in other schools "just roll out of bed and go to school." T h e r e are also students w h o view this fashion statement differently. As Zylstra and H a l f m a n pointed out, some people find it amusing. " O n e guy called m e monkey pants because he didn't k n o w my n a m e , " H a l f m a n recalled with a smile. But s o m e do not find this amusing. As Serge Badiane ( 4 04) explained. "It is strange and unusual because there is a distinction between a bedroom and a classroom." Serge, w h o is f r o m Senegal, is not used to this kind of authenticity and there is a certain culture shock to everyone w h o has not witnessed such a style p h e n o me n o n . Indeed, this is a free country. Fashion statements are made so often that a particular style vanished by the time it is recognized. Every decade that provided us with a certain style is back and our choices on h o w to dress are so broad that sometimes it is impossible to have a commitment. Though p a j a m a s have not been buzzing on any of the red carpets these days, we cannot rule out a possibility that the decade of PJs is around the comer.

The Grav An



State of Union brings mixed feelings I am not a fan of George W. Bush. In fact, I think that, with his policies and legislative efforts, he could possibly be the worst president to ever sit in the oval office. Despite this, I had some mixed emotions after watching the State of the Union address last night. During the first half of President Bush's speech, I was impressed with s o m e of his plans for the nation in the upcoming year. It shows great commitment to the preservation of the environment to propose making SI .2 billion available for research into using hydrogen as a ftiel source. Taking the initiative in the fight against A I D S in Africa by providing drugs and treatments for those afflicted with the disease is also commendable. Perhaps the most ambitious plan, however, is his plan on dealing with the budget and taxes. Bush plans on tackling the problems of taxes, unemployment and excessive government spending all in one fell swoop. By employing more of the American public, and taking less money out of their paychecks, he intends on lowering our national debt. I do not know if this plan will work, but I do believe that the lowering of the unemployment rale is sorely needed. By providing m o r e j o b s for the American public, the h o m e life for thousands of children will also be improved. This improvement could result in higher parental interaction in the lives of their children, and lower rates of violent acts committed by these children. Despite the impressive promises delivered in the first half of the speech, I was troubled by s o m e of the statements in the second half. As expected. Bush shifted his focus to the topics of terrorism and Iraq. Generally, I disagree with the course of action we are taking against Iraq. Even though we have not openly declared war against the country, we have been b o m b i n g sites daily and sending troops to the border. I completely understand the argument that Saddam has not accounted for many of his chemical agents and delivery mechanisms, but attacking him without the support of the United Nations is a grievous mistake. This w a r and the government's attitude toward it will only send bad messages to the rest of the world. I r e m e m b e r months ago when President Bush claimed that we were prepared to use nuclear weapons in the fight. This is the ultimate hypocrisy. W h y are we allowed to wield the nuclear b o m b while other nations are not? The people in power need to w a k e up and realize that not everyone in the world, or even our own nation, sees us as the " g o o d guys." I fear that any militaristic incursion onto Iraqi soil will also be seen as an idealistic incursion into the Arab world, and will not be taken lightly by the Muslim community. The upcoming year holds great opportunities; s o m e that could better our country, and s o m e that could leave the concept of world peace in a shambles. Throughout this process, only one thing is certain, we must all exercise our right to speak out on issues that affect the entire nation, and the entire world.

H o l m e s added that, "It's one of these things where the parties like to e n c o u r a g e p o l i t i c a l i n v o l v e ment," noting that the College, too, encourages student involvement. "We encourage students to get involved in this because they are going to be the leaders of the future, so w e ' r e happy to have students interested and involved in it. Holmes added that most students are just going to observe and see what the convention is all about. According to Holmes, the Hope Republicans is a "campus organi-

zation for republicans interested in politics." Students in this organization are active in local and state c a m p a i g n s , as m a n y were in the gubernatorial campaign last year. T h i s y e a r ' s c o n v e n t i o n was of particular interest to college-aged republicans. While the many of the lop parly posts such as stale chairp e r s o n a n d I s1 v i c e c h a i r w e n t unanimously to Betsy Devos, and former U.S. Senate candidate A n drew Raczkowski respectively, there was a close race for the parly's youth chair. The race between Jared Maynard of M a c o m b County, Scott

Fisher, chairman of the college republicans at Hillsdale College, and Sam Moore, a junior at Grand Valley Slate University resulted in a run-off between Maynard and Fisher. Maynard emerged victorious by just 14 votes out of o v e r 2,000 cast. Students at the opposite end of the political spectrum may consider joining the Hope Democrats and attending the Democratic party's February state convention in Detroit.

Dutchmen topple Comets Men, women beat Olivet on Sat., set to play Kalamazoo tonight David Yetter SPORTS EDITOR

T h e Flying D u t c h m e n defeated the Olivet C o m e t s at home on Saturday by a score of 99-90. H o p e played a strong first half and entered the break leading the g a m e by a score of 45-36. H o p e tried to pull away several times during the second half, but the C o m e t s kept c o m i n g back f o r more. Hope was winning by 17 points late in the game, but Olivet battled b a c k and cut the deficit to single digits. H o p e w o u l d n ' t give up the lead, however, and ended up winning by nine points. Five D u t c h m e n scored in double figures, giving the team a well-rounded attack. Jeff Carlson ( ' 0 6 ) had 2 0 points f o r the Dutch, while Greg I m m i n k ( ' 0 5 ) added another 16 in the victory.

T h e Dutch got a great defensive p e r f o r m a n c e f r o m D o n Overbeek ('03). H e blocked 6 shots and grabbed 9 rebounds. T h e Flying D u t c h m e n are n o w at the top of the M1AA with a record of 4-1 and h a v e an overall record of 14-3. T h e y host K a l a m a z o o tonight at 7:30 p.m. at the Civic Center. T h e undefeated L a d y D u t c h were also victorious over the w e e k e n d . T h e y trounced Olivet on Saturday by a score of 91 -60. T h e y improved their M I A A record to 6 - 0 and are n o w 17-0 overall. H o p e w a s only up by 9 points at halftime, but a second half offensive explosion turned the g a m e into a rout. T h e Lady Dutch got strong p e r f o r m a n c e s f r o m Jennifer Layne ( ' 0 6 ) and Katie Nienhuis ('03), w h o added 18 points and 16 points, respectively. T h e team plays tonight at Kalamazoo at 7:30 p.m.

Swimmers compete in dual meet Erin Riley STAFF REPORTER

The Hope women continued a successful season on Saturday, securing victories over Calvin, 14993, and Kalamazoo, 174-68. T h e Dutch stand with a record of 8-3 after the dual meet. K e y to the w o m e n ' s v i c t o r i e s were Michelle Smith, ( ' 0 4 ) in the 1,000 freestyle (10:43.38) and 5 0 0 freestyle (5:09.36) and Audrey A r n o l d ( ' 0 4 ) i n t h e 2 0 0 1M (2:16.60) and 200 backstroke (2:16.36). At the dual meet on Saturday, Arnold and Smith teamed up with t e a m m a t e s Erika Steele ( ' 0 5 ) and captain Kelly Parker ( ' 0 3 ) to claim first place in the 400-yard medley

relay (4:08.36), and ended up just 3 t e n t h s of a s e c o n d a h e a d of Calvin's relay team. T h e m e n ' s team, however, suffered two losses in the dual meet. T h e y fell to Calvin 117-105 and to Kalamazoo 144.5-91.5, ending their portion of the season with a

S o p h o m o r e Jeff Heydlauff captured first and clocked in with a personal best t i m e in the 5 0 - m e t e r freestyle (21.44). Both Heydlauff and Slagh saw victory yet again in the 4 0 0 - y a r d f r e e s t y l e relay (3:11.87) with teammates Dave O r n e e ( ' 0 6 ) and C h r i s H a m s t r a

5-5 record. One of the bright spots for the Dutch w a s Brian Slagh ( ' 0 3 ) . H e qualified for the N C A A Division 111 c h a m p i o n s h i p s with a 2 0 0 - m e t e r freestyle victory (1:42.51). He paired that v i c t o r y w i t h a n o t h e r g r e a t s w i m in t h e 5 0 0 - m e t e r freestyle, (4:44.33). Ian Kobes ( ' 0 4 ) also found victory in the 200-meter backstroke (1:58.82).


Despite the loss, t e a m ' s morale is up. "It w a s a good chance to race with s o m e good competition," said Jeff S e y m o u r ( ' 0 4 ) . T h e m e n ' s team is focusing on the league meet in February. T h e meet will be held from the 13th15th where they will square up against Calvin and K a l a m a z o o one more time.

High-schoolers to cheer at Hope Erin Riley STAFF REPORTER

Chccrleading squads f r o m 2 7 Michigan high schools will c o m e to Hope for a day of intensive inslruclion on Saturday. T h e clinic focuses on cheering, dancing, and stunts and the squads will then compete at the end of the day. T h e event is an excellent recruiting and fundraising tool for

the cheer program. T h e m o n e y raised f r o m the event helps f u n d c a m p in the post-season. T h e clinic also provides juniors and seniors on the high school squads an opportunity to get a feel for the caliber of H o p e ' s program. "The skills within the squad are improving each year," said co-captain Meredith Albers ( ' 0 4 ) . A f t e r claiming 8^ place in the

2001-02 season and 7 ,h place in 2002-03 season at the National Collegiate Finals, this c a m p a f f i r m s that the Hope cheer program is b e c o m i n g more recognized and respected. T h e credibility earned from these a c c o m p l i sh m e n t s will hopefully attract m o r e talent to Hope College and will help continue H o p e ' s success at Nationals.

Hello Dutchmen and wo me n , my name is David Yetter and I am the n e w sports editor here at the Anchor. I will do my best to give you fair and balanced coverage of all of the sports t e a m s here on H o p e ' s campus. If you feel that a team or a particular sport is not being covered enough, feel free to email me and voice your displeasure. This is your paper just as m u c h as mine and I ' m always open to suggestions. Well, then, let's get down to business. Hockey is not the most popular sport at Hope. In fact, it is probably one of the least talked about teams on campus. In reality, it is not even a team. It is a club because the school w o n ' t recognize or f u n d it. T h e apathy toward the team is shown in the size of the crowds. W h i l e basketball g a m e s draw in the thousands, most hockey games draw a c r o w d that is well below average, yet slightly above pathetic on the crowd-level scale. S o m e t i m e s I think that if you took out family m e m b e r s and/or girlfriends of the players, I would be sitting there covering the game in a neare m p t y arena next to the m a n w h o o w n s the rink and the guy w h o drives around the zamboni between periods. Well, I ' m here to tell you that watching a H o p e hockey g a m e is more exciting than watching a basketball game. In fact, excluding the all-important Hope-Calvin match-ups, it is the most exciting Hope sporting event that one can witness. I know, a lot of you are probably scratching your heads and wondering what I ' v e had to drink. But hear m e out on this one. D o basketball players have to play in an ice-cold

arena? Nope. D o football players knocking into each other have to glide around wearing ice skates? Negative. D o s w i m m e r s have to worry about being beaten up while they are competing in the 100meter freestyle? I didn't think so. Hockey players are some of the toughest athletes out there. If you don't believe me, go to a sports card shop and take a good look at the players, especially their mouths. You will notice that they have barely any teeth. And in most cases, it's not because they have bad hygiene. It is because their pearly whites have been knocked out during a game. And another positive is that the team is good. T h e Skating D u t c h m e n are hoping to go to the national tournament. Hope Hockey games h a v e something f o r everybody. There is usually a concession stand open at the arena. There are also plenty of arcade games and an air hockey table in the lobby. Also, fights between players are a c o m m o n occurrence at these g a m e s and what red-blooded male d o e s n ' t like to see a good brawl every now and then? Hopefully, you are n o w convinced that hockey players are tough, the g a m e s are f u n to watch and competitive, and that you should start going to see them. T h e Edge Ice A r e n a is just about 10 minutes u p the road off of US-31. Hope plays Davenport on Saturday night at 9 p.m. and hopefully, the attendance will be the biggest crowd for a game this side of Canada. I know it's cold in the arena, but suck it up, throw on a couple of sweaters and head out to the Edge. You'll be glad you did.
