New restaurant to offer more dining options close to campus
A new Western-themed has some area residents worried about additional late-night activity.

This spring, students won’t have to drive all the way to the Stockyards to experience a true taste of Cowtown.

The new Western-themed restaurant, Gunsmoke Grill and Saloon, will be opening in the heart of the TCU area on Cockrell Avenue, right behind Fuzzy’s Taco Shop.

Construction began about a year ago, but an exact date for completion has not been set, said Travis McKnight, owner and operator of Gunsmoke Grill and Saloon. He said he hopes for it to be open in April.

Neighbors who live near the location of the restaurant are worried about possible trash and late-night activity the restaurant could bring, said Keri Ryan, president of Bluebonnet Place Neighborhood Association.

“If he wasn’t open late, it wouldn’t be a concern,” Ryan said.

Journalism department to add new broadcasting class
Broadcast journalism students will now get experience performing all the roles involved in an newscast environment.

Broadcast journalism students will anchor, report, produce and edit a weekly 30-minute newscast that will air on TCU cable under a new class planned for next semester.
TCU meal card: Do not leave home without it
The House of Student Representatives wants students to be able to use their meal cards at local eateries.

A burger, fries and a drink in The Main: $4.47. The same meal at Wendy’s: $3.89. Being able to eat out on send home: priceless.

Bush’s proposed budget not sound
Proposal combines deficits, spending cuts

Bush’s proposed budget is the worst of both worlds, combining both huge deficits and draconian spending cuts. The hidden spending and irresponsible tax cuts represent a mockery of governmental management.
Two parties one in the same

There is a presidential election coming up and, as usual, there are no progressive candidates with a chance of winning. What a joke it is that the white boys going for the Democratic Party nomination are branded as liberals as if that were an insult.

New Release: Lovers

Sleepy who? This is exactly what I said when I was given the copy of Sleepy Jackson’s new CD entitled “Lovers.” But soon after I listened to the CD I found the native Australian band was actually something I really enjoyed.

New Release: 6th Street: Paved In Gratitude

The Adam Hood release, “6th Street,” is a surprisingly palatable blend of pseudo-poppy refrains and folk guitar, well mixed into an arrangement one would expect from central Texas.
