Sports The Rambler April 18, 2002 5 Athletic department considers return to NAIA Marc Nettles SPORTS EDITOR On Tuesday, April 16, inter- im director of intercollegiate ath- letics and head men's basketball coach Terry Waldrop manned a meeting that included all Wesleyan coaches and student athlete representatives from each sport to discuss the possibility of the university's athletic programs dropping from National Collegiate Athletic Association- Division iii to National Association of Intercollegiate Athletics next school year. Waldrop said that the reason for the meeting was to gain a consensus for the entrance into NAIA among all athletic teams, coaches and players. Waldrop began by compar- ing and contrasting the universi- ty's choices for next year. First, he discussed the pros of remaining in NCAA-Division III, some of which were compet- ing in the American Southwest Conference, which is the largest in the U.S.; post-season reim- bursement; and the prestige of being under the ...

Opinions The Rambler April 25, 2002 3 W. Law's resignation key to healing Jose Valdez Twenty-nine years ago, a nun told me something 1 didn't expect to hear. She said that nuns and priests didn't automatically go to Heaven. Her statement piqued my curiosity. Before I could ask her to clarify her com- ment, she beat me to the punch. She said nuns and priests were not infalli- ble or perfect. They, too, were susceptible to temptation and sin. Until that moment, I had seen them only as incorruptible, wise indi- viduals serving God. It never occurred to _________ me that they were mortal like myself. Her comments gave me a more realistic view of the world. They also prepared me for the recent sexual abuse scandal plaguing the Roman Catholic Church. In particular, they prepared me for the actions of pedophilic priests and the man who helped cover them up, Boston's Cardinal Bernard Law. For years, Law hid the truth from the public. Law knew that Fathers Paul Shanley and John Geoghan had p...

Sports The Rambler April 25, 2002 5 The unwritten rules are keys to sportsmanship Have you ever read of the unwritten rules? Of course you haven't, they're unwritten. For every rule that's thrown into the sports of football, basketball, baseball and hockey, there all many unwritten rules that players must abide by. These rules are just as important as any oth- ers are because they dictate how competitors will treat their fellow competitors. Think of them as the Geneva Convention, minus the bul- lets of war. The unwritten rules exist so that bush league, cheap, cheating, low-down, scumbag- type play will not be tolerated. ___ All of the major professional sports have them and players for the most part respect them. But since I'm sure most of you all have no idea what they are and why they exist, we'll go over a few. Basketball, The Punch: NBA players understand quite well from the incident involving former player and current Houston Rockets coach Rudy Tomjanovich that punches will no...

This artist breaks the mold for the common, everyday rapper, and brings a new flavor and personality to the rap game. At age 7, Willie learned how to play the piano, drums, guitar and sang with the Ferguson Florissant All District Choir. At age 11, he became a rapping/singing member of a group called the Baby Gangsters. Willie soon got tired of rapping about negative things like robbing and killing and turned his focus to school. He graduated from Berkley High School and received a full track scholar- ship to Ole Miss, where he pledged the historical African American fraternity Kappa Alpha Psi. He graduated and received a degree in psychology, with a minor in political sci- ence. Willie so...

Opinions The Rambler May 2, 2002 3 Request demonstrates women's equality isn't a global belief Jose Valdez Pardon me, but isn't this the 21st century? i believe it is, but there are still a few individuals who believe otherwise. These people live in this century, but continue to act as if it were the Stone Age. They harbor the notion that women shouldn't be allowed to be independent, respon- sible or hold positions of power. Rather, they view women as inferior to their male counter- parts. This archaic viewpoint came to light last week when Saudi Crown Prince Abdullah met with President George W. Bush to discuss violence in the Middle East. Prior to Abdullah's arrival, some- one requested that female flight con- trollers not be allowed to handle the prince's plane. No one knows for sure if the request came from Abdullah, one of his entourage or from someone else with a narrow perspective, but the request was honored. In fact, according to ABCNews.com., it was not a formal request by...

Swan Songs The Rambler May 2, 2002 5 It may be the end of the semester for the students, faculty and staff at Texas Wesleyan, but for the staff of The Rambler, it's the end of an eta. More than 70 percent of us are leaving. Some are graduating, others are off to pursue other interests. Who knows, we may even think about studying now. Join us as we look back at our time at The Rambler: the work, the fan, the struggles, the cameraderie, the triumphs, the tribulations, the sense of accomplishment... it's all here. Any journalism student worth his or her salt knows those most crucial inter- rogatory words known as 'the five Ws'- -who, what, when, where and why. During my years with the paper I've sought the answers to those questions on countless occasions. I've learned that working at The Rambler means 1*11 have to answer another set of Ws. The occasional 'WHAT should my lead he?' or 'WHO gave that quote?' from other staffers to 'WHERE is the modular building' and 'WHEN do you find tim...
