SGA book exchange beneficial to students [Newspaper Article] — Behrend Beacon (1998-2010) — 10 December 1998
SGA book exchange beneficial to students Aview from the lighthouse At the beginning of next semester, Student Government Association (SGA) will attempt to run a book exchange program for students. The process will work like this: a student will bring in a book and decide how much he or she wants to sell it for. If the book is sold, the student will get the full amount of money. SGA is doing a good thing by finally providing the bookstore with some competition. Most other colleges have at least one off campus bookstore to provide the school run store with some competition. However, Behrend students are not this lucky. We literally have no choice when it comes to buying books. Occasionally, Gannon or another nearby school will have a specific book at the more reasonable price, but this is not usually an option. Getting students to participate in this exchange might be somewhat of a problem since it is not taking place until next semester. Students probably want the money for...
Pinochet should be tried under international law [Newspaper Article] — Behrend Beacon (1998-2010) — 10 December 1998
Pinochet should be tried under international law The strong case for extradition By George Black Special to the Los Angeles Times In the suspenseful hours before the British House of Lords delivered its historic judgment on the immunity of Chile's Gen. Augusto Pinochet, I found myself driving slowly past the Navy Mechanics School in Buenos Aires, Argentina. In a city of beautiful buildings, it is one of the most handsome and imposing. With its clipped hedges, whitewashed walls and ornamental trees, it is an image of martial elegance akin to Annapolis or West Point. It is no one's idea of what a torture chamber would look like. But that is what it was. Truly terrible things happened here. The ESMA, as it is known, was the main detention and torture center used by the Argentine military during the years of terror known as "el proceso," from 1976-83. Pregnant women were among those who came here after being snatched from their homes in the dead of night by armed men in unmark...
Remember the less fortunate on the holidays [Newspaper Article] — Behrend Beacon (1998-2010) — 10 December 1998
Remember the less fortunate on the holidays Live From Guyana AYODELE JONES "Tis the season to be jolly " It's Christmas time again, and the time has come for anyone and everyone to take part in the holidays. The holidays can have different meanings for people. For some, it's a time to spend moments of love and laughter with our loved ones, it's a time to attend religious services and also share with one another in the bounty of food and gifts. While for others, it is another holiday to spend in need of the basic things in life; food, shelter and family. As we begin to continue our quests for the perfect gifts, we sometimes overlook the less fortunate. Many people are without homes, without jobs and even without families and instead of being worried about which color gift wrap they should buy, many are wondering where their next meal is coming from. As citizens of the world let us not forget about the needy, let our feelings of thanksgiving continue throughout the remainder...
End of semester brings extra stress [Newspaper Article] — Behrend Beacon (1998-2010) — 10 December 1998
End of semester brings extra stress The Ordinary College Student MARK OREENBANK With the end of another semester fast approaching, the usual pressures and complaints are starting to pop up once again all over campus. It seems that every semester the last week of classes is the most chaotic and hectic week of the term. Everyone is scrambling around to complete papers, presentations and projects that have been put off all semester. The computer labs are no longer vacant at 8:00 a.m., and students begin to wander the campus at all hours in a state of insomnia scurrying around like rats to complete their work. One issue that constantly rears its ugly head is the issue of selling books back to the bookstore. Why is it that so many people complain about the whole buy-back process without investigating how the prices are set and what factors determine the buyback prices. These same people then complain semester after semester. You get in line to hear everybody cry about how they ...

Convicted killer won't teach, Arizona state decides [Newspaper Article] — Behrend Beacon (1998-2010) — 10 December 1998
Convicted killer won't teach, Arizona state decides By Christine Tatum College Press Exchange TEMPE. An/. (CPX) - When it comes to teaching about rehabilitation and prison life. James J. Hamm says he's uniquely qualified. Officials at Arizona State University's school of justice studies thought so, too, when they hired him as an adjunct professor to teach two courses on criminal justice this spring. But when word got out about Hamm's first-degree murder conviction and the 17 years he spent in prison, a Hood of angry letters and phone calls - many from alumni threatening to cut off their support - prompted university officials to intervene and nix the school's offer. "The debate surrounding Mr. Hamm's employment in the classroom at A.S.U. would be too disruptive to the educational environment, as evidenced by the reaction to his hiring," a statement issued by Milton Glick, the university's provost and senior vice president, said. University officials said they would pay Hamm ...

Protesters demand closure of URI student newspaper over cartoon By Paul Davis And Chris Poon Knight-Ridder Newspapers SOUTH KINGSTOWN, R.I. - Shouting and chanting "We want action," about 200 University of Rhode Island students - most of them minorities - Friday confronted the establishment and demanded administrators shut down the college newspaper for publishing what they say is a racist cartoon. The students - led by the Brothers Unified for Action -also called for the resignation of the top three editors of the paper, The Good 5-Cenl Cigar, and the creation of a new paper "to end the racism, sexism and homophobia" on campus.

"The Good 5-Cent Cigar is dead." Hours later, Student Senate Finance Chairman Denis Guay temporarily froze the Cigar's budget, sending staffers scrambling to ...

Yale student stabbed to death off campus College Press Exchange NEW HAVEN, Conn.

Although her parents live abroad, Jovin was a U.S. citizen, a university spokesman said. Dean Richard Brodhead described Jovin, who coordinated a volunteer program for students who work with mentally retarded adults, as "very vivacious, very lively, very outgoing and very generous."

Kentucky bar owner charged after student death College Press Exchange LEXINGTON, Ken. (CPX) - A bar owner whose tavern is popular with students at the University of Kentucky faces criminal charges and the loss of his beer license stemming from the death of a student who was struck and killed by a train after leaving the premises. Even more trouble could be brewing for Jim Haney Jr., whose actions police also arc investigating in connection with the Nov. 15 car crash that killed a Kentucky football player and an Eastern Kentucky student and injured Kentucky center Jason Watts. On Thursday. Lexington prosecutors summoned Haney to appear in court on Dec. 17 on five misdemeanor charges of serving after hours and three of serving to minors. All ofthe charges stem from the death of 19-year-old Chad Clore who was last seen in Haney's home - attached to the hack of the bar - before he was killed Nov. 6 by a train on some nearby tracks. Police say Clore was drunk at the time. Meanwhi...
FBI documents on Sinatra detail decades of investigations [Newspaper Article] — Behrend Beacon (1998-2010) — 10 December 1998
FBI documents on Sinatra detail decades of investigations By Ronald J. Ostrow and Lisa Getter Los Angeles Times WASHINGTON - The FBI opened its files Tuesday on entertainer Frank Sinatra, a 1,275-page dossier documenting decades of probes into the singer's life, from his alleged ties to organized crime to a tip from gossip columnist Walter Winchell that he had bought his 4-F draft exemption for $40,000. A bureau inquiry found the charge relayed by Winchell to be baseless. But the files, made public under the Freedom of Information Act, detail other probes into Sinatra's life, with frequent mention of his links with such notorious mob figures as Lucky Luciano and Sam Giancana. Those associations produced no criminal charges against Sinatra, but reportedly were extensive enough to lead President John F. Kennedy to cool his relationship with the famed singer. The agency investigated allegations that Sinatra had links (o the Communist Party, as well as deat...
