New program aims to clean up after Paris' dogs [Newspaper Article] — Behrend Beacon (1998-2010) — 19 November 1998
New program aims to clean up after Paris' dogs World and Nation By Anne Svvardson The Washington Post PARIS -- This city is finally getting serious about dog do. For decades. Paris was known as the most beautiful city in the world --as long as you didn't look down. Generations of poodles and spaniels did their business on the sidewalks under the indulgent gaze of their owners while tourists and non-dogowning residents fumed. Taxpayer-paid street cleaners and, more recently, vacuum-toting motorcycles did their best to rid the public ways of the 5.6 tons laid down by 200,000 dogs each day, but without any help from owners it was an Augean task. And the idea of owners picking up the messes was not welcomed. Now. an experimental program has built fenced dog toilet enclosures all over one section of Paris, and employed sanitation specialists to urge owners to urge their dogs to go inside them. They do. The city's bestknown park has added enclosures this year and set up plastic-...
Via e-mail, surgeon assists lone sailor operating on himself [Newspaper Article] — Behrend Beacon (1998-2010) — 19 November 1998
Via e-mail, surgeon assists lone sailor operating on himself By Pamela Ferdinand Special to The Washington Post BOSTON -- The e-mail arrived from halfway around the world: A Russian sailor, alone aboard his competition yacht bobbing in the stormy South Atlantic, two scalpels and used gauze scattered about the cabin, wondered if he would die. "Have been sitting on the bloody cabin floor almost completely naked ... watching as my life drop by drop leave me," Victor Yazykov typed on his keyboard last Thursday. Yazykov, a former Russian commando and now a solo sailor, had sai led two months earlier out of Charleston, S.C., in one of the world's most difficult sailing tests, and was still 400 miles from Cape Town, his next port of call. His elbow had become infected and he had been forced to perform makeshift surgery on himself, winding a tight tourniquet around his arm. But the bleeding wouldn't stop. At his office here at the New England Medical Center, physician Daniel Carlin ...
Female football player's lawsuit asainst Duke ruled out of bounds [Newspaper Article] — Behrend Beacon (1998-2010) — 19 November 1998
Female football player's lawsuit asainst Duke ruled out of bounds College Press Fxchange DURHAM, N.C. (CPX) - A federal judge has kicked out of court a suit filed against Duke University by a student wanting to become the first woman in the nation to play Division I football. Heather Sue Mercer, a walk-on place kicker who graduated in May, sued the university and head football coach Fred Goldsmith in 1997, alleging that she was kept off the team because of her gender. She claimed her dismissal was in violation of Title IX, which prohibits sex discrimination at institutions receiving public funds. Mercer sought compensatory and punitive damages but collected neither after U.S. District Court Judge Carlton Tilley, Jr., dismissed her case, ruling that the university and Goldsmith had "no obligation to allow Mercer, or any female, onto its football team." Title IX, the judge said, requires athletics programs to allow members of both genders on a single-sex te...
School drops 'Chiefs' nickname [Newspaper Article] — Behrend Beacon (1998-2010) — 19 November 1998
School drops 'Chiefs' nickname College Press Exchange OKLAHOMA CITY, Okla. (CPX) - Efforts are underway at Oklahoma City University to drop the athletic team names of "Chiefs" and "Lady Chiefs" and to come up with a new mascot. President Stephen Jennings, backed by the university's alumni association, said he would appoint a committee to choose a new logo and mascot thai would debut in January. Administrators, alumni, faculty, students and athletic department staff will make up the committee, Jennings said. The Methodist-affiliated school is responding to the United Methodist Church's recommendation that all institutions somehow connected to the denomination - there are more than 100 across the nation - take another look at their existing use of mascots and logos. The change is understandable, Athletic Director Bud Sahmaunt said. "As an American Indian. I have not been offended by the use of the name Chiefs and always have been proud of the w-ay OCU has r...

Jimmy Z's is the perfect neighborhood bar [Newspaper Article] — Behrend Beacon (1998-2010) — 19 November 1998
Jimmy Z's is the perfect neighborhood bar By Roger Burhngame staff writer Jimmy Z's Time Out Tavern (a.k.a. The Pub), a local sports bar located on Buffalo Road, receives a lot of patronage from students right here at Behrend. If you are of legal drinking age, you have probably been there once or twice. Last week I took a couple of my friends from out of town to The Pub to enjoy a bite to eat. We were not disappointed; Jimmy Z's has some of the best bar food in Erie. The atmosphere in the pub is that of a friendly neighborhood bar: ripped bar stools, wallpaper with beer and sports posters; and the bar itself is covered in sports trading cards. There is a game room with a foosball table, a pool table, a dartboard, pinball machines, and a megatouch machine to keep everyone occupied. Top this off with a trough in the men's graffiti-ridden bathroom, a six-pack shop, and a kitchen that is twelve feet long, and you have a perfect recipe for a dive bar that you can't help but feel ...
Latino's boasts unique ethnic atmosphere [Newspaper Article] — Behrend Beacon (1998-2010) — 19 November 1998
Latino's boasts unique ethnic atmosphere By Michael Coursey staff writer One of the best places in Erie to find Spanish and Latin food and music is Latino's Bar at 1313 Parade St. in downtown Erie. The restaurant/bar is owned by Pedro Vargas and offers a full bar and a somewhat limited menu, with burritos, tacos and polio (chicken) dishes. Their tacos have a very delicious, authentic taste; they are somewhat reminiscent of the tacos I used to have in San Diego. The hot salsa they have is very good; I prefer the verde (green) salsa and nachos. They also have a blue malt liquor that is very tasty, but packs a punch. The bar has a decent sound system with a D.J. that plays mostly Mexican dance music. Usually on Saturday nights, for a modest cover charge, one can sec a band perform on stage. This Saturday, "Grupo Parrandero" performs from 9:00 p.m. through 2:00 a.m. On Wednesday nights Latino's has $1.50 drinks, as well as other drink specials, plus a D.J. As one would expect,...

The Cy Young is more than just an award [Newspaper Article] — Behrend Beacon (1998-2010) — 19 November 1998
The Cy Young is more than just an award Out Of Bounds JASONSNYDER Every year, with the conclusion of the Major League Baseball season comes the talk of what pitcher will receive the Cy Young award. For many fans today, the talk about this award brings with it one thought; who are the best pitchers in baseball? But the Cy Young award has much more meaning than that. Cy Young is more than just a prestigious award. He, not it, is one of the best pitchers baseball has ever seen. Moving away from the idea that the Cy Young is a piece of hardware that baseball's elite pitcher gets to set on his mantle, the man behind the award adds to the prestige and significance of the title. There has to be some reason that the award was named after Cy Young. But why did baseball choose this man above the countless others that took the mound in baseball's first 50 years? Denton True "Cy" Young was the first big name pitcher in the majors. He began his career in 1890, playing for Cleveland i...

Lion runners conclude season at regionals By Jason Snyder sports editor The Behrend men's and women's cross-country teams traveled to Allentown this past Saturday, November 14, to compete in the regional meet. The men place 15th of the 37-team field as the women were unable to place due to the team only having four runners. Coach Rich Hoffman commented on the atmosphere of the race saying, "the regional meet is one of the great spectacles in cross-country because of the size of the field and intensity." The meet featured nearly 300 of the region's top runners with a common goal of qualifying for nationals. The teams from College of New Jersey, Carnegie Mellon and Haverford realized that goal in the men's race finishing with 57,76 and 92 points, respectively. The women's race saw Carnegie Mellon, College of New Jersey and Moravian reaching the national meet with 71. 84 and 109 points, respectively. The Behrend men entered the race with hopes of possibly qualifying for the nat...
