Parking fees: do we get our money's worth? [Newspaper Article] — Capitol Times — 16 December 1983
Parking fees: do we get our money's worth? By Linda McCarty As the Fall Semester draws to a close, commuters can again look forward to purchasing a brand new, bright orange parking decal in January. Fifteen bucks is a small price to pay for the privilege of parking in Capitol's modern, convenient lots for another four months. And then again, maybe not. Parking lot fees do not fund "We found that Capitol was getting the short end of the stick." John Sheridan 1973 graduate snow removal. In fact, the $24,000 to $25,000 collected from Capitol commuters per year doesn't even stay on campus. Instead, it is pooled into a universal parking lot fund at University Park. All Penn State satellite campuses and University Park contribute to the fund and must request funds as needed for parking lot construction and repair only. Dr. Jerry South, director of Student Affairs, explained the logic behind the universal fund. "In order to understand this concept you have to lo...
Change highlights recent Capitol Campus history [Newspaper Article] — Capitol Times — 16 December 1983
Change highlights recent Capitol Campus history By Jerry Trently We've been through more change over the last year and a half at Capitol Campus than you'll probably ever realize. Dr. Stanley Miller has done a commendable job taking over the provost/dean title for the somewhat ambitious planner, Dr. Theodore Gross, who left here last summer. One of Miller's best attributes has been his attitude toward students. Capitol Campus probably couldn't have a" man at the helm with a better disposition toward students, and Miller is a man who's hallway presence is much more recognizable than was Gross'. After making what was considered a controversial move early in the semester, Miller released Dr. Harold Gilmore from the position of Business Division Head. And so, another personnel change took place at a time when the entire university seemed to be reshaping its administration. Dr. Bryce Jordan became University President following the departure of former President John Oswald. And ag...

Question: How does the semester system compare to the term system? [Newspaper Article] — Capitol Times — 16 December 1983
Question: How does the semester system compare to the term system? "I don't like it. I think the faculty could have done better in preparing for the transition. But I think next semester will show much improvement, because division heads are now aware of students' problems." Brian Burdette Mechanical Engineering "I like it better, because you have more time to get everything done, but it is going to be harder for me to get my credit requirements done." Tom Bernitsky Computer Applications Compiled by Rob Reimaniak "I don't like it. After ten weeks, you're tired, you need a change of pace. The semester system drags too much. I'm not sure I have the energy to continue." Pamela Samuels Humanities/Business "I don't like it. I don't think the curriculum has been prepared as well as it could have. It seems like we are still working under a term load, only for 15 weeks, with two more courses." Pete Thomas Mechanical Engineering "I like the semester system better. They still ...
Instructor and husband give historic [Newspaper Article] — Capitol Times — 16 December 1983
Instructor and husband give historic By George P. Yanoshik, Jr. Linda Ross watched the church across the street dying. She watched as children ran in and out of the abandoned building, waiting for the day an arsonist or wrecking ball would reduce the Victorian Gothic structure to a pile of rubble. But the Capitol Campus graduate, now teaching graphics here, and her husband, Ken, wouldn't let that happen. The duo combined her design skills, his drafting abilities, and the efforts of architect John deVitry, to transform the 100-year-old Zion Lutheran Church in Marietta from a run-down eyesore to a restored shell housing four condominiums. Alter moving to the historic riverfront town, the couple watched the church deteriorate until they ultimately purchased it at a sheriff's sale. "We went to the sale cold, just out of curiosity," she said, "and ended up buying it, finding only the bank bidding against us." They took possession of the church in November, 1979, a decade after th...
church timely renovation [Newspaper Article] — Capitol Times — 16 December 1983
church timely renovation chitecture in the public school system for 12 years, and earned her master's degree in Humanities here in 1982. She attributes her interdisciplinary course work here as an inspiration for the continuing church renovation project. "Our church is certainly not an example of 'pure restoration' taking it back to its original," Ross said. "It's what you call 'adaptive re-use' in which we respect the structure's original architecture, keeping what can be kept and adapting the inside into something useful." To retain the impact of the high Gothic ceilings and windows, the condominiums are designed on two levels, the second level becoming a "loft." In addition to retaining the windows in all of the units, an original brick wall which was once.part of the exterior of the church remains in one of the units. The choir loft has become the second floor in another unit, and all units still have the original wood floors which have been stripped, sanded down, and ...
Baja car gears up for spring run [Newspaper Article] — Capitol Times — 16 December 1983
Baja car gears up for spring run By Dennis Caldwell Hibernation is over. The Capitol All Terrain Access Vehicle (CATAV) will be redesigned for the 1984 Mini Baja East which may be held near Morgantown, West Virginia in May. Two senior engineering students, Chris Patrignani and Greg Labelle, have committed themselves to the project of redesigning CATAV. Labelle said safety is the first concern in designing an all terrain vehicle. Before the competition, the vehicles are rolled over onto their roll cage and drivers must stand on top of the vehicle to demonstrate the roll cage is strong enough to support the weight of the driver and the vehicle. "Two different vehicles turned over during the events last year. One rolled down a 10-foot embankment. The other, during the one-quarter-mile swim, turned over by rotating sideways in the water," Labelle said. "Neither of the drivers were hurt." CATAV also had its problems because of the rough terrain and the endurance required of a v...
What's cooking at Capitol Campus? [Newspaper Article] — Capitol Times — 16 December 1983
What's cooking at Capitol Campus? By Jim Kushlan It was one of those daily things you just don't question. But as I stood before the Potpourri special in the Lion's Den one day, it hit me: "Where does this stuff come from?" I figured someone had to find out, so I assumed I had been specially chosen and took off to find out what happens on the other side of the Lion's Den and Dining Hall counters. "Most of the food we prepare from scratch," said JoAnn Coleman, Food Service supervisor. "It's not like we just bring it in and zap it." Penn State has its own recipe file, she said. "We use standardized recipes and they're developed in the test kitchen at main campus." Standardized recipes and menus allow for uniform quality throughout the university, Coleman said, adding that's not always true, because of the variety of cooks. You might wonder just what goes on in that test kitchen up at University Park. Whose taste buds decide what's good or ghastly? "Most of the food we prepare ...
______________ Film makes all the right moves [Newspaper Article] — Capitol Times — 16 December 1983
______________ Film makes all the right moves A movie review by Don Strausburger The problems in steel towns have become very popular in recent months on the silver screen. First we were offered Flashdance, a look at a woman who wants to leave the steel mills to become a dancer, and now we have All The Right Moves, which looks at a young man attempting to avoid the steel mills entirely. All The Right Moves features Tom Cruise, returning to the scr«en immediately after the teen hit Risky Business. Cruise plays Stefan Georgevic, a high school senior and football player. He wants to go to college to become an engineer but knows he must rely on his football ability to get into college on a scholarship. As usual, the team's performance, is as important in his scholarship hopes as is his individual performance. His team loses a very important game to a rival because of a fumble in the endzone on the last play of the game. The coach afterward accuses the player who fumbled of being...

[©nS(S o Qn©©8(n)iii [Newspaper Article] — Capitol Times — 16 December 1983
[©nS(So Qn©©8(n)iii By Mike Markle iPs_©©8®mw§)iT-_© Heart's latest LP, Passionworks, follows the adventures of the Wilson sisters as they wax poetic about sour romances and lost love. Virtually all of the songs share the central theme of loneliness and broken relationships, making Passionworks a somewhat depressing album. There are a few out-and-out rockers on Passionworks, but the majority are mid-tempo ballads full of somber, image-laden lyrics that become redundant and boring after repeated listenings. The songwriting chores are evenly shared by Ann and Nancy Wilson and their high school friend, Sue Ennis, who all evidently share a pretty dim view of male-female relationships. Forsaking the song's subject matter, Heart is technically an above-average band, particularly the vocal talents of Ann Wilson, whose three-octave soprano allows her to switch effortlessly from hard rockers to soft ballads. Heart has gone through many personnel changes since th...
Individual athletics also exist at Capitol [Newspaper Article] — Capitol Times — 16 December 1983
Individual athletics also exist at Capitol Rob's Reaction A Sports Editorial by Rob Rejmaniak Much of the information printed in my sports section throughout this semester has been dedicated to the team sports here on campus. This being my last article with the Capitol Times, I would like to shed some light on sports activities available for those who do not have time to commit themselves to a team, but still enjoy sports and competition For those who enjoy tennis, there are six outdoor tennis courts located in two separate areas on campus. Three are positioned across from the University Apartments and the others are situated behind the dorms near the Student Center. ¦Students interested in playing basketball can use the gymnasium when the basketball team is not ' practicing. Starting Jan. 16, the team will practice from 3:30 p.m. to 5:30 p.m., but this may be subject to change. For example, on game days, the team may play a night game at 7:30, but will not hold practice dur...
