Final Word: Yes! Jodi Arias trial coming to an end

Hold your applause until closing arguments are over, but at least they have begun in the Jodi Arias trial. After four months of testimony, we can finally see the end of a trial that many people think shouldn't have happened at all.

But it did, and I think that if there hadn't been cameras in the courtroom, it would have lasted about half as long. In any case, I hope it doesn't take this jury long to come up with a verdict. And then a sentence. And then HLN and Nancy Grace can go home.

We hope.

Those self-centered millenials

A study out Thursday morning tells us what I think we already knew. Today's millenial generation, which has been called entitled, materialistic, and self-centered, are that way because we made them that way!

Yep, it's true. We Gen Xers didn't get anything we wanted so we made sure our kids didn't have to suffer. It's a generalization, sure, but I think we can all see a little of it in ourselves.

I wonder what our kids will do to theirs? If they have any kids, that is .

Frat houses returning to ASU campus?

And finally, if you went to ASU in the 1980s or '90s and you drive over there today, you won't believe the difference in Fraternity Row.

Where there used to be house after house of fairly well kept, full houses of boys, there is now chain-link fencing and homes that look like they should be knocked down.

ASU moved all the fraternities off campus last year, probably because the university didn't want to deal with the problems that came along with them, such as the parties and the drinking, and you know.

But look what has happened. The parties and the drinking are still going on, of course, just OFF campus. In March, there was a particularly bad incident where two girls got burned and this past weekend, five people were arrested and a student is in intensive care. Is being farther from campus actually making the partying worse? Maybe.

ASU is now looking into moving the houses BACK to campus.

About the Author

Karie Dozer is host of Arizona's Noon News.

She has been an on-air personality nearly continually since her college days. She loves radio because it is intelligent, immediate and almost always available.

She is the youngest of nine children from a Midwestern Catholic family where she learned to be heard, fight for a place at the table and find humor in almost everything. She was hired as a news intern while a senior at ASU's Cronkite School, and found that covering human stories like the OJ Simpson white Bronco chase and the 1992-93 Phoenix Suns was too much fun to pass up.

She loved life in the newsroom with all the action and crazy personalities to go with it. She anchored and covered some sports too, until politics dragged her away. She served as press secretary for Arizona's Attorney General Grant Woods for a five-year stint before jumping back to radio on a part-time basis. Three years ago she got back in the biz on a more regular basis as a midday host on what is now KTAR News. She has a passion for the breaking news of the moment, education, local politics, great food, sports and fitness. She has trouble turning down a good argument, a good book or a good glass of wine.

In her spare time she takes care of her boys, (husband Rich, son Jack, and yellow lab Buddy,) and bakes awesome chocolate chip cookies. She enjoys the quality of life the Valley offers her family and the natural beauty of Arizona. Her favorite places are golf courses, her own kitchen, the city of Flagstaff, and wherever her family is.

She considers herself lucky to work with the amazingly talented people of KTAR radio.
