Europe' s attitude on teen sex: just right or all wrong? [Newspaper Article] — Behrend Beacon (1998-2010) — 24 September 1998
Europe' s attitude on teen sex: just right or all wrong? By Ann Doss Helms Knight-Ridder Newspapers Rocky Mountain Collegian Here are some things you might find difficult to imagine: Condom billboards scattered around the South. Sex and contraception discussed frankly in schools. Teen pregnancy, abortion and AIDS rates less than half the current level. Northern Europe and the American South are two very different places, as a group of Charlotte-area youth advocates and adolescent health experts are well aware. They recently returned from a study tour of the Netherlands, France and Germany. Their goal was to figure out what we could learn from countries where, by many indications, teen-agers are far more sexually responsible than here. They found cultures with a level of comfort about contraception that was stunning even to health professionals, cultures where most adults believe teens will have sex and advise them on how to do it without harming themselves or others. "Their ...
Many students believe 'Dead Roommate' legend [Newspaper Article] — Behrend Beacon (1998-2010) — 24 September 1998
Many students believe 'Dead Roommate' legend By Ralph Vigoda Knight-Ridder Newspapers Note to college students: Do not wish your roommate dead. Do not encourage him to kill himself. Do not in any way hasten his end. It will not get you a perfect gradepoint average. That happens only in the movies - as in the summer release "Dead Man on Campus," in which two students with grades in the tank go looking for a suicidal roommate. If he offs himself, the college will compensate the pair for their presumed trauma with straight A's. The notion of a "dead man's clause" in any college policy would be too absurd to bother debunking - except that the legend has been circulating on campuses nationwide for 15 to 20 years and that, for just as long, otherwise bright people have been buying it. William Fox, a folklorist who has studied the myth, found that about two-thirds of the students he questioned at two New York state colleges believed it. Listen to W. Richard Ott, the provost of Alfr...
Brethren Cult seeks members from colleges [Newspaper Article] — Behrend Beacon (1998-2010) — 24 September 1998
Brethren Cult seeks members from colleges By Allison Sherry Colorado State University Rocky Mountain Collegian FORT COLLINS, Colo. — In front of a camp-style dinner at dusk with Horsetooth Reservoir as their backdrop, four members of a Bible-toting cult called the Brethren sat thoughtful and somber, carefully choosing words to express their admittedly extreme spiritual lifestyle. "We believe that Christ lived the purest example of Christian life," said member Jerry Williams. "We live like him ... we wish everyone could be this happy." Williams, along with about 110 other Brethren members nationwide, live a nomadic life. They travel around, mostly to college towns, striking up conversations with young adults about right and wrong and God's word, with hopes of finding recruits for their "church." Their lives are simple, and their quest is to abstain from what they call the "complications" of the real world. They do not work or own many material possessions They claim to have...
Feud may have triggered Mexican slayings [Newspaper Article] — Behrend Beacon (1998-2010) — 24 September 1998
Feud may have triggered Mexican slayings By Molly Moore The Washington Post MEXICO CITY - The execution of 18 people in the Pacific coastal town of Ensenada last week may have been the result of a feud between midlevel traffickers over a drug deal gone bad, according to Mexican law enforcement officials. Police are investigating allegations that Fermin Castro - who survived the attack in which 18 family members and neighbors were dragged out of bed and shot dead in a predawn massacre last Thursday _ was ordered killed by a Mafia money-collector angered when Castro absconded with a drug haul without paying for it, officials said. The assassinations, whose victims included two infants, six other children and a pregnant woman, stunned Mexican authorities, who said they fear the trend among Mexican drug cartels toward the kind of indiscriminate violence associated with Colombian drug Mafias. Until the past year, Mexican drug organizations generally were known for targeting indiv...
New Queen s reign of power [Newspaper Article] — Behrend Beacon (1998-2010) — 24 September 1998
New Queen s reign of power By Michael Colton The Washington Post ATLANTIC CITY - Hours after realizing dream No. 1 by winning the Miss America crown, Nicole Johnson, previously Miss Virginia, realized dream No. 2. Near the end of the competition, Johnson, who plans to be a journalist, said the person she would most like to interview is Elizabeth Dole, "a woman of integrity." When she finally returned to her hotel Sunday morning to catch two hours of sleep, there was a message: Liddy Dole called; call her back when you get a chance. These things happen when you're Miss America. Pat Robertson, the founder of the Christian Broadcasting Network and her employer, called Sunday morning, too. But Johnson, 24, is not going to have much time to return the calls. By afternoon she was whisked away to New York, where she was to appear on ABC's "Good Morning America" and "The View" and pick out her traveling wardrobe for the next year from the designers of her choice....
River pollution linked to widespread sexualdefects in fish [Newspaper Article] — Behrend Beacon (1998-2010) — 24 September 1998
River pollution linked to widespread sexualdefects in fish By Maria Cone Los Angeles Times In a surprising scientific discovery that suggests pollution is feminizing animals throughout the wild, everyday concentrations of sewage effluent in rivers appear to contain estrogenlike chemicals potent enough to cause fish to be born half-male, half-female. The finding by British scientists provides strong new evidence that hormone-altering pollution - one of the most troubling and controversial environmental issues of modern times - could be a global ecological threat Other recent studies had found scattered populations of animals with bizarre sexual defects living in highly polluted waters, but the new research suggests that the problems are more widespread than previously detected. The British researchers said they uncovered "very compelling evidence" that sewage treatment plants routinely release hormonelike compounds into rivers that are feminizing "a surprisingly large proport...
Prison officers in abuse case get jobs back [Newspaper Article] — Behrend Beacon (1998-2010) — 24 September 1998
Prison officers in abuse case get jobs back By Mark Gladstone and Mark Arax Los Angeles Times SACRAMENTO, Calif. - A former associate warden and five other high-ranking officers at Corcoran State Prison, disciplined in a highly publicized inmate abuse case, have had their jobs restored with back pay. A Sacramento Superior Court judge on Friday set aside the discipline that followed the alleged beating of 36 black inmates in 1995, saying prison officials failed to adequately spell out the charges against the officers. Department of Corrections officials expressed disappointment that the case was thrown out on what they characterized as a technicality and said they might appeal. Pam Smith-Steward, the department's chief legal counsel, said Judge Cecily Bond found that the notice of charges filed against the officers "didn't specifically cite" the procedures and regulations they were accused of violating. According to the department's investigation of the June 21, 1995, inciden...
Switched-Baby support case dismissed [Newspaper Article] — Behrend Beacon (1998-2010) — 24 September 1998
Switched-Baby support case dismissed By Patricia Davis The Washington Post STANARDSVHLE, Va. - It began seven months ago as a routine domestic-relations case. A mother, Paula Johnson, asked a judge to order her former boyfriend, Carlton Conley, to pay the $75 a week he had promised to help support their daughter, Callie Marie. Monday, that judge awarded custody of 3-year-old Callie to Johnson, 31, and set visitation for Conley, 34. But he dismissed the child-support case of Johnson vs. Conley , pointing to what has since become a fact known nationwide: Conley is not Callie's biological father. "I can't enforce it," Juvenile and Domestic Relations Judge F.W. Somerville told Johnson Monday at a hearing in this picturesque town of 250. "I can't order him to pay child support." Somerville's ruling brought an anticlimactic end to a child-support case that led to the revelation that Callie was not the daughter of Conley and Johnson but had been swapped with another baby girl just ...
Reservoir Dogs bites [Newspaper Article] — Behrend Beacon (1998-2010) — 24 September 1998
Reservoir Dogs bites David Young staff writer When the Erie Roadhouse Theatre's production of Reservoir Dogs let out, one could hear contradicting opinions from the crowd. "I thought it was really, really good," proclaimed one woman walking out of the theatre. "Well it killed a couple of hours anyway," replied her husband. However, it seemed like there really wasn't a majority opinion about the show. So, you're either going to have to go on instinct or take my word for it. Reservoir Dogs was adapted from the 1992 Ouentin Tarantino film of the same name. Mob boss Joe Cabot, played by Flo Fabrizio, needs seven guys to pull off a big diamond heist. Cabot makes the mistake of not checking out his robbers carefully enough, and one of them turns out to be an undercover cop. Obviously this complicates things. Reservoir Dogs is not a show you would want to take your mother to. If the plot sound interesting, you'll probably like the show because of the comedy involved. Fabrizio plays...
Fox and Hound combines atmosphere, good food and liquor [Newspaper Article] — Behrend Beacon (1998-2010) — 24 September 1998
Fox and Hound combines atmosphere, good food and liquor By R.B. Burlingame staff writer The newest pub in our fair city is quite impressive. The Fox and Hound opened one month ago in the Millcreek Mall beside Lenscrafters. It boasts thirty-four beers on tap, and has over one hundred different beers to choose from in all. The list includes beer from Murphy's Irish Stout, to Pretzel City Belgian White. There is a very pleasant room, the Green Room, set aside for cigar smokers, and the Fox and Hound's cigar selection is unmatched by any other bar in Erie. Their small batch bourbons and whiskeys are incredible, probably the best in Erie. The atmosphere was very pleasant, the bar is custom cut and quite beautiful, as is the woodwork. With twenty-eight televisions, customers will most likely be able to watch anything they want. The billiard tables are full-size, and are rented by the hour. As for the menu, there is quite a selection of appetizers. I had the Spanish artichoke heart...

It ended on Cal's Terms [Newspaper Article] — Behrend Beacon (1998-2010) — 24 September 1998
It ended on Cal's Terms Out Of BOUndS Jason Snyder As quickly and unceremoniously as Cal Ripken Jr."s consecutive games streak started, it ended. In front of 48,013 unsuspecting fans, the Baltimore Orioles took the field against the New York Yankees. The Yanks' second baseman, Chuck Knoblauch, grounded out to shortstop Mike Bordick to get the historic game underway. The only problem was that no one knew it was historic. It appeared to be a normal baseball game. But sud denly a mob of photographers and video cameras horded the Baltimore dugout. When the Yankees realized what was happening, they rose out of their dugout to salute and admire this modern day hero. With the picture of Cal Ripken Jr. shown on the scoreboard, the fans in Camden Yards stood up and cheered in admiration of "The Ironman," for Cal Ripken Jr. finally took a break. After 16 years and 2,632 consecutive games played, "The Ironman" took a seat in the dugout and brought to an end, "The Streak." The ceremon...
Volleyball keeps sights high [Newspaper Article] — Behrend Beacon (1998-2010) — 24 September 1998
Volleyball keeps sights high key. "Volleyball is basically instinct, athletic ability and a lot of heart," Jacobelli commented. Stepping up as the 1998 cocaptains are senior defensive specialist Angela Traister and junior outside hitter Heather Lerch. Also on the power squad are junior outside hitter Mary Good and sophomore defensive specialist Megan Ross. Eleven other players share their love for the game and skills to make this team succeed. The Lions' volleyball season was kicked off on August 29th at Notre Dame in Ohio. The key to this scrimmage was "trying new things to see who would show some impressive talent," said Jacobelli. Their second challenge was to compete in the Cortland 20 team tournament. "This was a good test of where we were and what we needed to be," remarked Jacobelli. By Jamie Salapek staff writer The women's volleyball team lost four straight matches this past weekend in the John Carroll Tournament. However, they continue to display a positive outlook...
Gaines paces Behrend to quick success [Newspaper Article] — Behrend Beacon (1998-2010) — 24 September 1998
Gaines paces Behrend to quick success By Jason Snyder sports editor The men's cross country team, paced by freshman Brian Gaines, is off and running through a promising 1998 season. Coming off first place finishes at both the Fisher and Thiel Invitationals, the Lions hoped to continue their early season success hosting the Penn State Behrend Cross Country Invitational, and ended up placing second. Gaines captured the lead early in the race and was able to pull away from the field, holding off Grove City's John Sabella for the win. The win marked Gaines' third consecutive win for the season and a 3-0 start to his college career. Behrend placed Mark Suroviec (6), Adam Dzuricky (13), Jason Saeger (16), and Dennis Halaszynski (19) in the top 20. However that was not enough to hold off Grove City who won the invite with 28 points. Behrend finished second with 54 points. While the men's team suffered its first loss of the season, the women placed for the first time. They raced a...
