Cal State Northridge campus police earlier this week investigated allegations that student body president Joaquin Macias had a gun on campus--a felony--but found no evidence to support the claims, school administrators said Thursday. CSUN spokesman John Chandler said Macias does own a weapon, which he acquired after his tumultuous election to office earlier this year. "He has stated he has some concerns about his safety," Chandler said.

A 22-year-old Texas man pleaded guilty Tuesday to capital murder in the slaying of a television reporter who studied broadcast journalism at Cal State Northridge and worked for the Associated Press in Los Angeles before moving to that state. Anthony Gary Silvestri, of Temple, Texas, opted to plead guilty in order to obtain a life sentence rather than risk drawing the death penalty if the case went to trial, according to Texas officials.

The mostly-minority slate of candidates that won the student government elections at Cal State Northridge will be allowed to take office next month, apparently ending weeks of campus controversy. Associated Students President Brad Marsh on Tuesday exercised his power to veto any further action by the student senate to overturn the March election, an anticlimactic end to a semester of marathon meetings, heated debate and allegations of voter fraud and campaign misconduct by the winning ticket.

After five hours of angry debate, the Cal State Northridge student senate Tuesday delayed a decision on the controversial student government elections won by an all-minority slate of candidates. By delaying the discussion until next Tuesday, the senators kept the controversy at full boil for at least another week. "We're at an impasse here," said Associated Students President Brad Marsh.

It's not ended yet. The seesaw battle over the Cal State Northridge student government election will continue today at a student senate session. The student senate will decide whether to allow the incumbent party to retain control for the period beginning June 1. The alternative is to turn power over to another slate, which has been accused of violating school election rules prior to its victory at the polls in March.

An all-minority slate of candidates was put on track Tuesday to take over Cal State Northridge's student government when the Student Senate abandoned a move to overturn the election for campaign irregularities after school attorneys warned that could cause legal problems. After nearly five hours of heated debate peppered with hooting and name-calling, Associated Students President Brad Marsh withdrew his motion to hold a new election. Later asked why, he replied, "I just changed my mind."

Workers on Friday hauled away the last of the portable classrooms on the east side of the Cal State Northridge campus, signaling another step in recovery for the school that caught the brunt of the 1994 Northridge earthquake. Before being dismantled this week, the so-called Zelzah Court trailer village had housed the College of Humanities. Now humanities will be taught in the newly renovated kinesiology and Jerome Richfield buildings on the school's west side.
