Dominick Mastrangelo Baiul is not the 'girl' she once was How quickly ihey grow up. Figure skaters thai is. One moment they are the darlings of their sport and the focal point ot a global ritu- al and the next they are wrapping their automobile around trees. OK, not all of them, but figure skaters these days seem to have about as much common sense as a college football player. Oksana Baiul said she wasn't drunk when she ran her Mercedes off . the road on Jan. 12. Baiul claimed to have four or five Long Island iced teas before she and a friend decided to take an inhibition- free joy ride 1 along the Connecticut countryside. Baiul, 19, was released on charges of driving while intoxicat- ed after her attorneys found a loophole in Connecticut law that allowed her to get off if she went for treatment at a clinic for first time offenders. It doesn't matter that her blood alcohol level was at .168; the legal level is .10. Add to the equation that she's under age and shouldn't have been dri...

m ■ In the wake of the floodL. Dominick Mastrangelo Editor in chief The rains that swept through the Metroplex last week and caused flooding in several rooms of O.C. Armstrong Hall was only part of the problem, according to Ron Livingston, interim assistant direc- tor of plant operations. The rooting that took place over O.C Hall uncovered rusted and worn out drainage pipes that had addition- al rooting laid over them which caused water to leak into the walls and eventually into the rooms. "It wasn't the roof that was leaking," said Livingston. "There are several joints on the perimeter and there's a drain hole in the roof in the middle of the building and the water runs through the pipes. When enough water gets in there after a good soaking rain, the water tinds other places to go," lie said. The rooting, done in two phas- es, is Hearing the end of the second Photo by James Pfaffengut phase which includes all flat roof buildings, such as the dorms, cafeteria, and the science buildi...

February 20, 1997 The Rambler ttfeanto— Edit o rials Fiddling on the roof TllE PROBLEMS caused by the roofers during (he past six months have shown that the administration has no method to its madness. The students and professors at this school have had to withstand the constant inconvenience of fumes and noise in classes, in the dorms and in just walking around the campus. The one question that keeps surfacing over and over is why. Why were there three solid months of summer and not one roofer in sight, but as soon as school started they were up everywhere and working on everything? Why inconvenience 2,000 students when you can inconvenience maybe 10 percent of that number by hav- ing them work in the summer? Students were getting sick from the fumes which caused some classes to relocate for the duration of the construction on their building. In the dorms, second lloor rooms were shrouded in a suffocating haze. Eating food in the cafeteria wasn't made any easier with the horrible b...

February 20,1997 The Rambler |t 1 a Anything goes at the Oscars Julie Ann Jones Staff writer Thanks to a variety of independent films in 1996, the Academy Awards ceremony on March 24th may be one of the most unpredictable OsCar races in recent- memory. Although Hollywood had plenty of commercial successes last year, including Jerry Maguire, box office success doesn't always mean an Oscar. The Academy tends to lean more towards films that are made with taste and skill, with an eye for beauty. And unlike the last several years, when Forrest Gump, and Braveheart swept many major critics lists, this year the critics have yet to agree on a favorite. Best Picture nominee The English Patient is the closest thing to an Oscar favorite in this field. Leading the race with twelve nominations, many believe the film has an Oscar in the bag. But don't count out Fargo, with it's seven nomina- tions. This film, considered a darkhorse because of violence, now seems like a sensible and tasteful choic...

The Wesleyan basketball team, corning off their dramatic Xl-78 come-from- hchind victory over the East Texas Baptist Tigers, have hit that point also. After injuries, per- sonnel problems, and a "suicide" non- conference • schedule, the basketball team is still standing and still in the thick of the playoff race. With a 6-5 record in the Heart of Texas Conference, the Rams have topped their conference win total of the past two years com- bined and there's still five games remaining. The goal of this team all sea- son long has been to finish in the top four in the conference and go to the conference tournament. At the beginning of the year it had the makings of foolish dreaming, thanks to injuries to Tom Stetson, Lanny Knight an...

February 27, 1997 The Rambler Wesleyan enrollment goes up Paul Brymer Staff writer While many colleges through- out Texas experience decreasing enrollments, Texas Wesleyan University is going against that trend as its enrollment continues to increase for the tilth year in a row. The overall increase in this five-year period is from 1,675 in 1992 to 2,713 in 1997. When asked about the reasons lor the success* of Wesleyan's enrollment campaign,' Dave Voskuil, vice-president for enroll-* ment management, said, "Our success is based on two main fac- tors. First, we have a very professional staff who work hard to recruit people and who sell this school extremely well. "Second, we are an attractive alternative for any student who prefers to attend a more personable college with more reasonable tuition costs. The college is also in a very accessible area and has a very good reputation with employ- ers for producing quality graduates." "In contrast, schools such as Texas Christian Universit...

Most stu- dents expect to pay between $150-$200 per semester. Or maybe that's becoming a thing of the past. The rising trend with many professors is to require more than one book per class. In fact, some courses require several books. It's not unheard of to spend more than $130 on books for a single class. This becomes a real problem when a student is unfortunate enough to end up in several such courses. It's expensive enough with only one book per class. It would help if professors kept students' budgets in lnind when selecting textbooks. How often is it really necessary to use more than one textbook? Often a textbook can be bought and rarely opened, if ever. Is there a law that demands every class must have a corresponding book? It's one ...

Some things are better left alone Like hibernating bears, sleeping dogs and Shakespeare. Stage West's updated produc- tion of Measure for Measure is an example of this truism.

No, it isn't because these stu- dents are oveijoyed about the new cable systems in the lounges. It isn't that they are disgruntled about hall policies. These students have pharyn- geal stretococcal infection, more commonly, known as "strep throat." Its symptoms include sore throat, fever, sluggishness, and dif- ficulty swallowing. Speaking can also be a hard task. According to Deb Norwood, the nurse at Wesleyan's Health center, about a dozen students have come in recently with symp- toms of strep throat, some of whom live on campus. There have been serious cases reported in both 0 C. Hall and Stella Russell Hall. How are these students get- ting infected?
