It's rareness, not "His Airness," sparking NBA season [Newspaper Article] — Behrend Beacon (1998-2010) — 25 March 1999
It's rareness, not "His Airness," sparking NBA season Out Of Bounds JASON SNYDER The shortened, lockout plagued, greedy playercd, Jordanless NBA season is only a month and a half into the year, and it is already halfway over. Sounds like a mess. And it is. But it is still staying popular to the fans. Not for the big names on ihe court, but, rather, for the unexpected stories that surround it. True basketball fans knew from the start of the season, that we couldn't ignore the game that we have come to love. But wc did wonder what the league could do to spark interest with the people that ultimately pay the outrageous salaries of its players. The biggest story of this rare 1999 season are the Los Angeles Lakers. Every week seems to bring changes to the team as you can sec EVERY Sunday on NBC.

National Guard called out to put down housing riots [Newspaper Article] — Behrend Beacon (1998-2010) — 1 April 1999
National Guard called out to put down housing riots by Bongo, the three legged monkey assistant editor The housing problems on campus have grown to epic proportions in the past week. The recent riots on campus and the burning of Niagara Hall with great loss of life has caused the administration to request that the National Guard be called out to quell the disturbances. Provost and Dean John Lilley is calling on the students currently holding hostages in Perry Hall to negotiate and end these disturbances. The controversial way that the entire housing contract turn-in was handled began the problems on campus this semester. Housing remained unresponsive to student requests to fix the system, causing students to begin to ponder taking things into their own hands. On Thursday, March 25th, what started out as a nonviolent protest soon ended up turning into a full scale riot. The rioters presented a list of demands for the improvement of Housing and Food Services. These demands inc...

Taking advantage of the C.D.C. by Dave Young staff writer For those that think the Career Development Center (CDC) is not that important, or only important in one's senior year, you're wrong.
