ASU Now - Formula SAE PIR

AVONDALE - Apr. 2, 2016 - ASU Now - Formula SAE PIR - Interested passers by stopped to learn about ASU's Formula SAE car at Phoenix International Raceway, on Saturday, Apr. 2, 2016, before the start of the Desert Diamond West Valley Phoenix Grand Prix, Verizon IndyCar Series race. Around 20 students from the team came to show off their rolling chassis in an effort to generate some excitement, and perhaps funds, for their hand-built project. Many of the team members worked on the car over night, getting the suspension, engine, floor and side panels attached. The students brought along a Project Cars video game and connected it to an old chassis and nose cone. The game features popular racetracks and various racecars. Photo by Charlie Leight/ASU Now

0522120210dn PNI0526-met hayden mill opens – 5.24.12 – The original Hayden Flour Mill (cq) began in the late 1800s, but burned down, as did the second. Tempe and the Rio Salado Foundation (cq) have been instrumental in reopening the third structure, built in 1918 (cq). The property, on Rio Salado Parkway and Mill Avenue (cq) has been fenced off for 15 years (cq). The foundation is raising funds for the rejuvenation of the mill and its silos, as well as the surrounding grounds that are adjacent to Tempe Butte. The grounds will be open for events in the fall.
