Waco back in the news SIX years after [Newspaper Article] — Behrend Beacon (1998-2010) — 10 September 1999

Waco back in the news SIX years after by Michael D. Towle Knight-Ridder Newspapers WASHINGTON - Six years after the flames died out in Waco, the deadly Branch Davidian standoff has reignited passions in Congress, placed Attorney General Janet Reno under new scrutiny and raised serious questions about the federal government's credibility. At least three congressional committees are taking another look at the 51 -day siege lawmakers are demanding Reno's resignation and the Justice Department is bowing to pressure for an independent investigation. All this after the FBI reversed years of denials and acknowledged last week that federal agents tossed incendiary devices into the compound in Waco, Texas, the day of the deadly fire. II the Attorney General cannot manage to find and tell the truth about a matter was important as the Waco incident, she should step aside and give someone else a chance," Sen. Phil Gramm, R-Texas, said Wednesday, adding his voice to the chorus ot lawmake...

ESPN still growing after 20 years [Newspaper Article] — Behrend Beacon (1998-2010) — 10 September 1999

ESPN still growing after 20 years by Cecil Conley Knight-Ridder Newspapers Chris Berman could have left ESPN in 1986. He was in the running for the sports anchor job at KGO (Channel 7) and also had talked with then-Giants owner Bob Lurie about replacing Hank Greenwald as the radio voice of the team. The job at KGO offered much more money than Berman was making at the time. And calling games for the Giants, his favorite major-league baseball team, had been a lifelong dream. Berman says while both jobs were appealing, he opted to stay at ESPN because he believed the sports cable network was on the verge of something big. And he was right. When ESPN landed the rights to Sunday night NFL games in 1987, Berman said he knew for the first time that the network was going to survive one way or another. "I gave a one-minute speech leading into our first preseason game (Chicago at Miami) and gave a little thank you to all our fans - 'This is as much for you as it for us. You've helped ...

Remnants of Dennis continue to cause problems by Steve Stone Knight-Ridder Newspapers NORFOLK. Va. - If a region could grumble. Hampton Roads would shout al Dennis: "Enough already!" The storm formerly known as Dennis lost its star billing as a tropical system Monday, but still struck a nasty note, pouring up to 10 inches of rain on interior Virginia. And, after giving Hampton Roads a break on Sunday, its wide mantle of clouds again swept over the area, stealing the holiday sun just as Virginia Beach reopened the water to swimming and surfing. In Hampton, hundreds of people whose apartments were wrecked when a tornado spun off by Dennis hit on Saturday, were still seeking answers on what to do Monday. Some aid may come from Washington. "1 have declared a major disaster in the commonwealth of Virginia," President Clinton announced Monday, "to help the slate and local recovery efforts." His announcement, making tornado victims eligible for federal assistance, came during a spe...

Toilet humor 'stinks' in summer heat [Newspaper Article] — Behrend Beacon (1998-2010) — 10 September 1999

Toilet humor 'stinks' in summer heat by Deanna Symoski ¦ features editor Fat Bastard, Big Daddy and Cartman—though Jedis overpowered us this summer, it was mere mortals who made us laugh. Here's a comprehensive review of three of the summer's funniest flicks and how they fared in the "Summer of George.'" Austin Powers: The Spy Who Shagged Me: Healher-Shrneather! I demand more scenes featuring Scott Evil, but I'd settle for more screen time from Dr. Evil and Weight Watchers' poster child Fat Bastard himself. The hippest, most entertaining parts of the whole film came when one of these three characters appeared on screen, thanks in pari to the witty adlibbing between Mike Myers and Seth Green. Though Austin Powers himself is a little less shagadelic than the rest of the cast, it's worth hanging in there - just to see what he'll come up with next. BEST LINE: "I want my baby back, baby back, baby back, baby back ribs..." Big Daddy: This is favoritism in its purest form: I loved th...

Portman takes over as 'Queen' of Hollywood [Newspaper Article] — Behrend Beacon (1998-2010) — 10 September 1999

Portman takes over as 'Queen' of Hollywood by Katie Galley editorial page editor With jobs ranging from professional hitwoman to queen of an empire, Natalie Portman has done it all. Before she was Queen Amidala in Star Wars, she was just u kid living n Long Island. She is a young across that has never ceased to impress audiences with her acting utilities and peers with her steadfast moral standards. Back in 1993 when Natalie landed her first movie role, no one had ever heard of her. She was just another kid-actor who would probably have her 15 minutes of fame and disappear back into the woodwork of fickle Hollywood. But when the movie was released, what came out on film proved to everyone that she was there to stay. The Professional, in which Natalie portrayed an orphan living with and learning the life-style of a hitman, brought her acclaim from the highest levels of Hollywood. She was quickly dubbed as a young Audrey Hepburn. She was only 11 years old. Soon after this she ...
