Baby enters world at toll booth [Newspaper Article] — Behrend Beacon (1998-2010) — 22 October 1998
Baby enters world at toll booth By Tom Jackman The Washington Post WASHINGTON - Jose Ortiz hurriedly tossed 50 cents in the toll basket on Northern Virginia's Dulles Toll Road Tuesday morning so he could speed his pregnant girlfriend, Ana Medrano, to the hospital. But before Ortiz could pull away from the tollbooth, Medrano blurted out from the back seat, "Oh, my God, the baby's coming. Ortiz told James Jones, who was stationed at the booth in the main toll plaza, to call the police and an ambulance. Jones asked, "She's having a baby right now?" Pat Gandee, the tollkeeper on the other side of Ortiz's car, heard Jones' astonished tone, looked down at Medrano, and "I saw the (baby's) head. I thought, 'They're not going to make it to the hospital.' This lady was having a baby right in the middle of the lane." And before paramedics could arrive, Stephany Emperatriz Ortiz entered the world in the back seat of a Nissan Sentra at 3:08 a.m., one month prematurely, after two hours of...

Behrend Remembered on sale in Penn State Behrend bookstore [Newspaper Article] — Behrend Beacon (1998-2010) — 22 October 1998
Behrend Remembered on sale in Penn State Behrend bookstore By David Young staff writer Behrend Remembered, an informal history that explores the 50 years of Penn State Erie, has been published as part of the College's 50th anniversary celebration. Written by Benjamin A. Lane, associate professor of English emeritus and former dean of students, the volume is filled with photographs and personal memories of those who built the institution. The book begins with the lives of Ernst and Mary Behrend, whose Glenhill Farm estate provided the setting for Penn State's presence in Erie. Lane continues with a review of the early years of the College, when it was simply a center of Penn State, and its evolution to a four-year, degree-granting school. Some interesting photography throughout the book shows what life at Behrend has been like over the years. I suggest checking out the hot outfits on page 43 modeled by some of Behrends former students. Or take a look at former Behrend student...

Volleyball completes busy two weeks [Newspaper Article] — Behrend Beacon (1998-2010) — 22 October 1998
Volleyball completes busy two weeks By Jamie Salapek staff writer Bumping, setting and spiking - some may think that these are the keys of volleyball, yet the Behrend team has shown that there is more to it than that. The Lions have proved that it's all about the love for the game as well as teamwork. Behrend's schedule has kept them quite busy the past thirteen days. The team headed to Fredonia for a tournament on October 10. They faced off with Geneseo, yet reluctantly lost in three games, 15-11,15-11, and 15- 8. The Lions had also encountered Geneseo earlier in the season at the Allegheny Tournament, but also lost in three games. Behrend's second match in the tournament was against Fredonia. Fredonia was fired up for their home tournament and beat the Lions in four games, 15-13, 6-15, 12-15, and 11-15. Despite the loss, Behrend played well as Tiffany Beers and Mary Good each had 16 kills. After those two losses, the Lions rebounded and beat Alfred in five games, 15-6, 15-...

'Batch' of surprises highlight 1 st half of NFL season Out of Bounds JASQNSNYDER Can you believe the NFL regular season is approaching its halfway mark already? I guess with all the excitement baseball has brought to the country, fans are having a hard time keeping up with the fast paced world of sports. But the first few weeks of the football season have set the tone and given fans a sense of who to watch in the upcoming weeks. And as you look through the team standings and the statistical leaders. you may be surprised at what you see.

A number of teams that were once laughing stocks of the NFL are now making a name for themselves as playoff contenders. And a batch of teams that were expected to rise to the top of the league standings are now beginning to fall to the cellar of the NFL divisions. And in a season that was supposed to be th...
