So this is Christmas: The Galleria buzzes with afternoon shoppers searching for last-minute gifts Tuesday as Houston prepares to celebrate the Holiday season. The University will be on break from Dec. 23 to Jan. 2.

 
Williams Tower climber was member 
of UH community
The scene had onlookers glued to Williams Tower and made the front page of newspapers across the country, but a climber’s attempt to scale the building hit the University a little closer to home. Ryan Hartley, 20, died Monday when he let go while climbing the 900-foot building in the Galleria area after reaching the 26th floor. Hartley was a sophomore philosophy major at UH.
 

Advertising revenue increases;
Sarelli prepares for spring semester
In the final Student Publications Committee meeting of the semester, SP Director Dick Cigler said the student advertising representatives' diligent work has helped to increase the department's sales from last fall semester by $50,000.
 

Potential award winners headline 
weekend releases
The ticket line begins today for none other than The Two Towers, the latest installment of the Lord of the Rings.
 

'Two Towers' builds toward series' 
third installment
About an hour into the new Lord of The Rings movie, The Two Towers, just as Pippin Took and Merry Brandybuck are meeting up with Treebeard, it dawned upon this reviewer that this was not a new movie at all. If it was, it would merit a new review, but this was just one gigantic nine-hour movie with five hours to go.
 

Lupe Tortilla's offers steamy Mexican cuisine
Houston has so many Mexican restaurants that at times it can be overwhelming to decide on just one. But no Mexican restaurant in Houston makes an enormous, light, fresh and tasty tortilla like Lupe Tortilla's.

Simonson: Remember Hector the Collector
I want to write about someone who lived down the street from me, because he is about to be forgotten, and I do not want that to happen. We called him Hector the Collector, after the Shel Silverstein poem of the same name. We called him that because that was what he did. Nobody knew his real name. 
 

Connor: Racial 'blame game' fails to solve 
school dilemma
Monday, I came across an extremely interesting editorial in the Houston Chronicle written by Pulitzer-Prize-winning columnist William Raspberry. Raspberry, an African-American, wrote about the "blame game" he feels African-American parents play concerning the academic progress of their children. The column hit close to home for me, as I could not have identified with it more.
 

Staff Editorial: In a whole Lott-a trouble

Athletics focuses on economics;
Briles hires Spradlin
The air is still buzzing with excitement over new UH football head coach Art Briles’ arrival on campus, but the Athletics Department has entered its next phase of reconstruction: fundraising. Briles is talking about winning and losing and getting the football program where it needs to be, while the department is talking about dollars and cents.
 

Lady Cougars have Georgia on their minds
Santa Claus may be coming to town soon, but first the Lady Cougars will have to deal with a more formidable presence as the Georgia Lady Bulldogs descend upon Hofheinz Pavilion at 7 p.m. Friday.
 

Cougars try to conquer Aztecs
The 2002-03 season hasn't been kind to the men's basketball team, but it will look to reverse its fortunes when it hosts San Diego State at 1 p.m. Saturday at Hofheinz Pavilion. The 2-4 Cougars are coming off a 68-59 loss to Southwest Texas State on Dec. 9.
