Behrend receives $1.4 million donation for athletic fields By Will Jordan news editor On Saturday, October 17th, Dr. John Lilley, Behrend provost and dean, announced a gift of $1.4 million dollars. The gift was donated by a couple who wishes to remain anonymous. The gift was used in the development of 20 acres into four regulation soccer fields which will be used for a variety of intramural sports. "The gift was used to finalize the creation of the fields," said Brian Streeter, Athletics Director. The first use of the new fields will be in the Spring. A key component of the gift was the 75,000 pound steel bridge which spans Trout Run. Trout Run is the creek that is in the Gorge. The bridge was brought to Erie from Minnesota by a 125 foot truck. A crane which was brought in from Pittsburgh and assembled on site was used to place the bridge. Besides the bridge, a walkway from the southwest corner of the Erie Hall parking lot all the way to Logan House has been constructed. In ...

Behrend tries to manage underage drinking [Newspaper Article] — Behrend Beacon (1998-2010) — 22 October 1998
Behrend tries to manage underage drinking _... _ . . . .«.. , ~ , . ~ • photo by Andrea Zaffino Bill Donahue, Manager of Police and Safety Services Kristie Vitron staff writer Although there have only been two citations issued by Police and Safety so far this semester, Bill Donahue, Manager of Police and Safety Services here at Behrend feels that "a lot of issues of vandalsim or petty crime on campus are directly influenced by alcohol." Donahue wants to remind underage drinkers that the University supports the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania's laws on alcohol. If students who are under 21 are caught drunk or drinking within their jurisdiction, on campus, they are cited by the state, fined $300 plus court costs, and lose their driver's license for 90 days. Students can even be charged with D.U.I, while driving through a parking lot. In most cases of underage drinking, Police and Safety is not even involved.

Underage drinking a national problem among college students [Newspaper Article] — Behrend Beacon (1998-2010) — 22 October 1998
Underage drinking a national problem among college students By Angela Rush staff writer Prosecutors recently took the extraordinary step of charging a Massachusetts Institute of Technology fraternity with manslaughter in the case of Scott Krueger, eighteen, who drank himself to death at a party last year. Suffolk County District Attorney Ralph Martin decided not to prosecute individuals because he said, "the fraternity promoted and orchestrated activities that led to Krueger's death." Krueger was a new pledge of the MIT fraternity. Scott Krueger died on September 29,1997, two days after he was found unconscious following the night of the party. Krueger apparently had an alcohol level four times over the legal limit. MIT shut down the Phi Gamma Delta fraternity after Krueger died of an overdose of alcohol. Charges were brought up against the MIT fraternity and they face fines for manslaughter and hazing. The trial is set to take place soon. The government is pushing for a cha...

Local District justice accused of racial comments [Newspaper Article] — Behrend Beacon (1998-2010) — 22 October 1998
Local District justice accused of racial comments By Anne Rajotte editor in chief Harborcreek's District Justice Peter Nakoski is known at Behrend for being notoriously hard on students who have to appear before him. Recently, however, he has been getting publicity for another reason. According to the Erie Daily Times, during a training session for district judges that took place a year ago, a criminal law instructor asked the judges in attendance, "It's not unlawful or illegal to be a black man, is it?" The Judicial Conduct Board, who brought charges against Nakoski, alleges that Nakoski replied, "Yes, it is unlawful to be a black man. They're all in jail. They are the ones doing all the burglaries and robberies." The board also alleges that after he made this comment he said to Nancy Matos-Gonzales, another judge in attendance and a Hispanic woman, "Oh, no disrespect to you." If a special disciplinary court finds these allegations to be true, Nakoski could be censured or r...

District Justice not concerned with student voters [Newspaper Article] — Behrend Beacon (1998-2010) — 22 October 1998
District Justice not concerned with student voters A view from the lighthouse Next year. District Justice Peter Nakoski, is up for reelection. He is currently serving his fourth six-year term. Nakoski is infamous at Behrend for being overly hard on students. Students who have to appear before him commonly get fines or sentences close to the maximum allowed by law. Also, Nakoski is currently under investigation for making racially offensive comments during a justice training session. Nakoski can be hard on students because he doesn't have to worry about winning their votes. The people who vote for him aren't the people who have to worry about Nakoski giving them uneccesarily harsh sentences. Students, who have very little political power locally, have to take what the judge gives them. However, students do have the potential to change this situation. College students are allowed to vote in the district that their college is in, which means that we can vote Nakoski out of of...
Letter to the Editor [Newspaper Article] — Behrend Beacon (1998-2010) — 22 October 1998
Letter to the Editor Wakeup call to America on hate crimes Dear Editor: On October 12th, students of the University of Wyoming and the rest of the world experienced a great tragedy. Matthew Shepard, 21, died of complications resulting from a brutal assault. This would appear to be an everyday crime here in America, but it wasn't. In this crime, hatred was the gun and a person's sexual orientation was the bullet. Matthew Shepard, a gay student from the University of Wyoming, went out on Wednesday, October 7, to a local campus hangout. There Shepard met two men that led him into believing that they were homosexuals, which was a ploy to lure Shepard into their truck. The two men, Russell A. Henderson, 21, and Aaron J. Mckinney, 22, asked Shepard to take a ride with them. Shepard, obviously not suspecting the torture that awaited him, agreed. Officials say that the two men pistolwhipped Shepard while driving to an isolated area outside of town. The two stopped the truck, took ...
Homecoming participation reflects choice of activities [Newspaper Article] — Behrend Beacon (1998-2010) — 22 October 1998
Homecoming participation reflects choice of activities The Ordinary College Student MARK QRFFN «A N K Well it's time once again to begin the celebrations for another Behrend Homecoming. Yeah. With many activities planned for the weekend, the ordinary college student has to won der if any of them are actually worth going to. Having gone down (in the rain) every year (in the rain) to experience homecoming at Penn State Erie - The Behrend College, or Penn State Behrend, or Penn State Erie, or Penn State Behrend cam pus, or whatever this school decides it wants to call itself, I've seen one constant thing, aside from the rain, that takes place every year: lack of student participation. Why is it that more on-campus residents from our campus participate in University Park homecoming activities than in the ones that take place for our special little weekend? Is it because it rains every year? Maybe. Is it perhaps due to the fact that an Open House weekend is always scheduled t...
