STEVE WOLF AND SWING SPEAK AT BEHREND MARCH 26 The Office of Student Activities at Penn State Erie, The Behrend College, will present a performance by Steve Wolf and Swing Speak on Friday, March 26 at 8:30 p.m. The group, which offers a rich mix of jazz and other musical styles, will perform at Bruno's in the Reed Union Building. Their performance is free and open to the public. After years of backing a legion of top lo cal and national performers, four of Washington's finest side men have come together to form Swing Speak. In this era of techno pop and hype, they make music the old fashion way: with a strong melodic content and deft musical skill. Not content to be typecast, this revivalist group has influences covering the full range of the American jazz repertoire, along with a touch of Latin and rhythm & blues. The success of this formula is evident in their exciting performances, and the band is quickly gaining a loyal following. Steve Wolf was named by Goldmin...

Where was the sense of logic? [Newspaper Article] — Behrend Beacon (1998-2010) — 25 March 1999

Where was the sense of logic? A view from the lighthouse Sometimes students wonder where people's heads are located, especially at the Computer Access Center (CAC). If you haven't already figured it out. the Computer Center has decided to charge money for papers printed out at the library's computer center. This is due to the fact that the printers in the library changed from dot matrix to laser printers. In order to buy a card for this new cost, one must go to Hammermill or the RUB Desk. The cost of 20 laser copies is one dollar. Several complaints can be made about this new charge. First of all, full-time students are charged ninety dollars a semester for the computer fee. Why can't the CAC use part of this fee for the new costs of a laser printer instead of charging more money'.' Also, whv can't the card be bought at the library's computer center? Why does it need to be bought at Hammermill or the RUB Desk? Why do students need lo irek across campus to pay for something...

The Voting Concept [Newspaper Article] — Behrend Beacon (1998-2010) — 25 March 1999

The Voting Concept Time to Complain NATALIEGAGLIANO I am writing this editorial column in response to all the comments 1 have been receiving concerning how the newspaper "sucks". My purpose is to justify why the newspaper is the way it is. The Beacon's main problem is that il is too understaffed. There are only about twenty students on the editorial board. These editors are responsible for writing articles, editing other writers' articles, laying out their page, and pasting their page together. A lot of time and effort is placed into this process. Editors spend countless hours in the newspaper office in order to produce their page. These editors have only one assistant, whose name is Mike Frawley, to help the process run more smoothly and efficiently. Mike spends a lot of his time to help the editors as much as he possibly can, and I commend him for making the editors' jobs a lot less painless. Another problem the Beacon staff suffers from is the lack of stories to write a...

Spiders in the dollhouse [Newspaper Article] — Behrend Beacon (1998-2010) — 25 March 1999

Spiders in the dollhouse Misr.ellanev. the Old Jalnnv KF.RRY HTNKSON Someone once told me that people eat an average of six spiders per year in their sleep. This is because spiders supposedly like warm, damp places, and I suppose a sleepy open mouth is damp and dark and warm enough. After I first heard this I had a hard time falling asleep for a few nights. Sometime toward the end of high school, my boyfriend, at the time, and I were sitting on a log in the woods. "Look," he said, pointing to a leaf to the right of us. I looked. Resting on it was one of the hugest spiders I had ever seen, one much too large, I thought, to be native to Erie, Pennsylvania. It looked like a tarantula; big, brown, and fuzzy. I remained on the log, but my boyfriend stood up and walked over to the spider. Instead of stooping down to get a better look at it (as I thought he would), he stomped on it. I heard a distinct popping sound as the spider was flattened under his shoe. I had never before he...

Finding out the hard way why fish make the bestcollege pets _ [Newspaper Article] — Behrend Beacon (1998-2010) — 25 March 1999

Finding out the hard way why fish make the bestcollege pets _ _ KAREN HEALY "For reasons of sanitation and safety, pet animals, with the exception of tropical fish and goldfish, are not permitted in residence halls, apartments, dining halls,'or other University buildings." ' So reads the official regulation on pels for Penn State's Erie campus, where I attend school. Fish in this context refers to any aquatic animal, such as frogs, turtles, and so one. The catch, according to rumor, is the animal has lo be able to survive underwater for at least five minutes. As anyone can guess, students have often joked about training Fido to breathe underwater for five minutes or of watching the room inspectors standing over a frog tank holding a stopwatch. Jokes aside, this rule on pets was a difficult one for an animal lover,(especially of cats) to swallow. Al one to point last year one ol my three roommates and I discussed breaking it. After visiting a pet store, we were sold on th...

^etter editor: Faculty member defends fraternities [Newspaper Article] — Behrend Beacon (1998-2010) — 25 March 1999

^etter editor: Faculty member defends fraternities The end of the school year approaches, and it appears that once again it is 'ime to talk about social decadence by focusing on fraternities. Last year at this time there were complaints about the number of members of SGA who were fraternity/sorority members. This year the last couple of issues of the Beacon have examined the theme—with good reason. With the question of coed fraternities and binge drinking on the minds of many college administrators, there is a certain justification to examining the roles fraternities play on campuses. But these concerns do not justify the myths or misconceptions that are spread about fraternities. To clarify: (1) People do not join fraternities simply to party. They can do that for free or at a minimal cost on their own. (2) People do not join fraternities to "buy their friends". That's perhaps the dumbest myth I've heard so far. There is no brother on campus who you can't be friends with (a...

Incarceration not solution to war on drugs [Newspaper Article] — Behrend Beacon (1998-2010) — 25 March 1999

Incarceration not solution to war on drugs By Michael Kirkland The State News Michigan State University Paging through a copy of a recent edition of The New York Times, I happened upon an interesting little article. This illuminating collection of words and numbers presented me with a most extraordinary fact: In America today, nearly one of every 150 persons is incarcerated in some sort of correctional facility. That's more than twice the number of a decade ago, despite the fact that government statistics claim crime rates have fallen sharply for six consecutive years. The most compelling explanation for this seemingly unnecessary growth in the imprisonment rate is the fact that many of our society's prisoners are drug offenders. In other words, the main reason the United States is second only to Russia in imprisonment rales is the infamous war on drugs. Conservative politicians in the 1980s, realizing our society was plagued by savage dope fiends who indulged in horrificall...

A review of the Academy Awards [Newspaper Article] — Behrend Beacon (1998-2010) — 25 March 1999

A review of the Academy Awards The Behrend Review CHARLES TESTRAKE The 71st annual Academy Awards show was a mixture of many things. Those things ranged from predictability to surprise, from honors to exuberance, as well as from total boredom to a complete disgrace. That was this year's Oscars. In an attempt lo respond to past criticisms that previous Oscar shows have started too late and have run too long into the night, the Academy this year decided to move their telecast from Monday to Sunday night and begin it a half hour earlier at 8:30pm. However, despite this, the show still lasted over four hours, over four and a half hours if you include that corny and completely unnecessary Oscar pre-show with Geena Davis. In fact after they got through the introductions, the film montage, and the incredibly long and not very funny monologue by host Whoopi Goldberg. It was nearly 9:00pm before they got to the first award of the evening. That first award was for Best Supporting Ac...

What are we paying for? Housing and Food Services needs to wake up [Newspaper Article] — Behrend Beacon (1998-2010) — 25 March 1999

What are we paying for? Housing and Food Services needs to wake up ------ sp^- What You Talkin' Bout Willlis WILL JORDAN What's the deal with Food and Housing? Many people as well as myself feel very unsatisfied with several aspects of the Food and Housing service here on campus. The first thing I would like to talk about is the food. I have been boycotting Dobbins and avoiding eating at Bruno's all semester long. Yes I am a lot more hungry than I used to be, but my stomach feels a lot better. To put it bluntly, the food sucks. When I was eating at Dobbins, TUMS became my dietary supplement. I do not feel that Dobbins offers a very healthy menu. There is a small monopoly here on campus. Why can't there be something closer to campus such as a McDonald's or a Taco Bell or a pizza place? No, the food from these places isn't very healthy either, but at least students would have a choice of where they want to eat. The only students that have access to these places are those who...

College towns: new hot spots for retirement [Newspaper Article] — Behrend Beacon (1998-2010) — 25 March 1999

College towns: new hot spots for retirement By Diane C. Lade Knight-Ridder Newspapers FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla. - Retirees who considered their college years among the best in their lives now have a chance to relive them, right on or near campus. College towns are considered the new hot spots for retirement communities. The chance to audit college classes luiiionfree and innovative performing-arts programs are drawing seniors to academic enclaves just as golf courses and the beach once lured retirees to coastal Florida. "If the choice is Leisure World or a college town, more retirees are starting to opt for the latter," said David Savageau, author of "Retirement Places Rated.. In fact, a Rocky Mountain-area college town will be Savageau's No. 1 pick when the latest edition of his book comes out in May, although he won't say which one. Numerous centers of higher learning already have retirement complexes either on or directly adjoining their campuses and more are actively consi...

Colleges joining sweatshop watchdog alliance but students still skeptical [Newspaper Article] — Behrend Beacon (1998-2010) — 25 March 1999

Colleges joining sweatshop watchdog alliance but students still skeptical By Christine Tatum College Press Exchange CHICAGO (CPX) - Some of the nation's most prestigious colleges and universities have joined a group set up to ensure their names aren't on apparel and goods made in sweatshops, but many student activists are angered by the alliance because they say the group's policies are weak. Seventeen schools, including Brown, Duke, Harvard and Princeton universities, this week joined the Fair Labor Association, a new group to be made up of affiliates among consumer, labor and human rights groups; corporations; educational institutions and religious organizations. The announcement came two weeks after hundreds of protesters across the nation, many of whom were students, demonstrated against corporate giants for allegedly subjecting workers overseas to abusive working conditions and unfair wages. Other schools that have agreed to participate are: Dartmouth, Smith and Welle...

UNC president advocates new, hands-on admissions standards [Newspaper Article] — Behrend Beacon (1998-2010) — 25 March 1999

UNC president advocates new, hands-on admissions standards By Jennifer Rothacker Knight-Ridder Newspapers RALEIGH, N.C. - University of North Carolina system President Molly Broad says it's time to raise admission standards, not through higher test scores, but with hands-on evidence. Rather than requiring better grades or SAT scores, Broad wants University of North Carolina applicants to submit work such as high school essays or science projects to show they know how to think and are ready to do college-level work. "I do believe we are at the point we need to take another look at requirements to get into the university," Broad told N.C. legislators Thursday. It was Broad's first public unveiling of the suggestion. She and her staff are applying for at least $1 million in grant money to study the idea further and are planning a May trip to Oregon, where such performancebased standards are now used. Broad argues that standardized test scores and grades don't tell the full stor...

Student candidates play key role in N. Y. elections [Newspaper Article] — Behrend Beacon (1998-2010) — 25 March 1999

Student candidates play key role in N. Y. elections College Press Exchange VALATIE, N. Y. (CPX) - A couple of New York college students felt the joy of victory and the agony of defeat after this week's elections. Voters in Valatie, N.Y., a town of about 1,500 people living 16 miles south of Albany, elected 19-year-old Jason Nastke, a student of finance at Hudson Valley Community College, to the office of mayor. Nastke, who was already serving as a village trustee, got 290 votes in the election, beating out 65-year-old incumbent Charles White, who received 182 votes. Bui voters in New Paltz, N.Y., decided to stick with the age and experience offered by incumbent mayor Thomas Nyquist instead of electing SUNY-New Paltz senior Russell Ferdico to the village's top position. Nyquist won what Village Clerk Julie Boice said was the biggest election in New Paltz's history. He received 497 of the 891 votes cast, while Ferdico received 345. The rest went to write-in...

Students sue Kentucky State over yearbook, newspaper [Newspaper Article] — Behrend Beacon (1998-2010) — 25 March 1999

Students sue Kentucky State over yearbook, newspaper College Press Exchange CINCINNATI (CPX) - A federal appeals court is considering a claim by former Kentucky State students who say the university's administration censored student publications when it refused to distribute a student yearbook and interfered with the student newspaper. Attorneys for the students opened the hearings on March 18 by asking the 6th Circuit Court of Appeals to reverse a lower court's November 1997 ruling in favor of the university. In that decision, U.S. District Court Judge Joseph Hood rejected claims that the university had violated students' First Amendment rights. Hood ruled that the yearbook was a nonpublic forum unprotected by the First Amendment because its content did not amount to public speech. He also ruled that the students' claims concerning the campus newspaper were unfounded. Former students Charles Kinkaid and Capril Coffer filed the lawsuit. Both accuse the administration of tryi...
