Website of the week By Jon Stubbs features editor As if the Student Programming Council doesn't do enough for the students here at Behrend, they have constucted a website designed to inform students of upcoming and current events located at <www.clubs.psu.edu/spo.

The Thin Red Line: story takes forever to develop [Newspaper Article] — Behrend Beacon (1998-2010) — 21 January 1999
The Thin Red Line: story takes forever to develop by Michael Coursey staff writer The Thin Red Line, director Terrence Malick's first major movie in over twenty years, is a very symbolic, poetic and philosophical movie about the angst and futility of war. It opens with two young U.S. Army infantry soldiers who were living on the Solomon Islands with a primitive tribal people. They experienced the joys of the simplicity of family life away from the war, and away from the technology and strife of the 20th Century. The movie intertwines the scenes of nature with scenes of war, and constantly asks the question: "is nature or man is the ultimate ruler of the world?" The movie reminds one a great deal of the flow and tone of The English Patient in that it takes what seems like hours for the story to develop. The principle characters are Sean Penn as 1st Sergeant Welsh, a salty old guy who has been through the grinder and is just trying to lead his men through the horrors of war. N...
At First Sight is worth seeing [Newspaper Article] — Behrend Beacon (1998-2010) — 21 January 1999
At First Sight is worth seeing Sean Penn plays First Sergeant Welsh, the courageous and cynical NCO who runs C-for-Charlie Company in the Twentieth Century Fox release, The Thin Red Line. Deanna Symoski staff writer Until last Saturday at 12:40 p.m.. there was just something about Val Kilmer that never appealed to me; maybe it was his gum-snapping arrogance in Top Gun or his overly-brooding, haunted-by-more-than-just-abad-script Batman. But in his most recent film, At First Sight, Kilmer drops the hero act and reveals a side of himself that really makes the ladies swoon. Based on a true story documented by the book, To See and Not See by Oliver Sacks, At First Sight is the story of Virgil Adamson, a massage therapist in the Adirondacks, who has lived a simple but content life since he went fully blind from an eye disease at the age of three. When "Amy," played by Mira Sorvino, is forced to take a vacation from her architecture firm in New York City, she becomes one of his cl...
Modest in his mind, a legend in ours [Newspaper Article] — Behrend Beacon (1998-2010) — 21 January 1999
Modest in his mind, a legend in ours Out Of Bounds MSON SNYDER For years, Michael Jordan advertised the Nike phrase "Just Do It." His playing career best exemplified that. But with his retirement last week, it's time for Michael to live by a different phrase. He can no longer show people his greatness on the court. The argument of whether or not he is the greatest basketball player in history, now can only be argued through the numbers and video tapes. To fans that watched him play, they know the answer. But to those that didn't and to the future fans, there needs to be more of an argument. And what better than for M.J. himself to assure his superiority. It's time to "Just Say It, Michael!", "I am the greatest!" We've heard Will Chamberlain say it. We ve heard Oscar Robertson imply it; "No one's going to ever know who's the greatest basketball player. I think I'm the greatest - look at my record." Il would be interesting to hear what Jordan had to say in response to that...

Behrend women atop AMCC standings [Newspaper Article] — Behrend Beacon (1998-2010) — 21 January 1999
Behrend women atop AMCC standings By Jason Snyder sports editor The Penn State Behrend women's basketball team is off to a 2-0 start in the Allegheny Mountain Collegiate Conference (AMCC) with convincing wins over Lake Erie and Frostburg State. The Lady Lions entered conference play at Lake Erie with a 6-6 record, winning five of eight previously. Lake Erie entered the match-up at .500 with a 5-5 record.

men's basketball [Newspaper Article] — Behrend Beacon (1998-2010) — 21 January 1999
men's basketball continued from page 1 with twelve minutes remaining, at 45-25. FSU played catch-up, and a foul shot with 6:30 remaining closed the gap to 50-39. But Behrend played strong during the stretch run and held on for the impressive win. Frostburg chose to run a full-court press the entire game, despite Behrend's ability to break it a majority of the time. "Because they pressed us, we had to adjust," guard Jason Paloskey commented. "Everyone played unselfishly and did a good job finding the open man." Statistically, Paloskey was the most unselfish of all, as he led the team with eight assists to go along with his eight points. Despite Frostburg's team height advantage, Behrend owned the offensive and defensive glass. Behrend out-rebounded their opponent Bovaird for two! 37-19. Center Chris Hughes dominated the inside and led the Lions with twenty points and eleven rebounds. Center Nate Willson also collected eleven rebounds and scored nine points. Guard Brock Bo...

Are you still interested in the NBA now that the lock-out has ended? "I've adapted to not watching it, so I really didn't miss it all that much. The shorter season will definitely make the league a lot different. But Jordan is gone; my team, the Bulls, will be completely different; so I don't have as much to watch for anyway." Damion Miller, 06, MIS "I know I wouldn't pay to responds - if they'll still go see a game, but I am interested to see how the general population I am interested in seeing how the whole situation Matt Bresee, 06, Commu pans "I'll still be a fan because I love the game. College basketball is better, though. The new to different teams, and will cause the older cap restrictions will send the better players players to try to stick around longer. There will also be a conflict after the next draft because there will be two crops of players with little or no NBA experience."

Housing camp-out turns into chaos [Newspaper Article] — Behrend Beacon (1998-2010) — 28 January 1999
Housing camp-out turns into chaos by Nicole McGee staff writer This Sunday night the Wintergarden was full of students waiting to submit their housing contracts. Housing and Food Services began collecting them at 6:00am Monday morning. Eighteen hours beforehand, students began lining up and waiting in front of the doors to the Reed Commons. Students relocated all the furniture from the first floor of Reed Union Building to accomodate their wait. They took the couches from the back lounge and the student organization lounge. They brought stereos, videogames, chairs, bean bags, books, cards, pillows, blankets, and even a few televisions with them. Traditionally the camp-out had taken place outside the office of Housing and Food Services, but this year it was moved to accomodate the students. Although the Office of Housing and Food Services doesn't encourage this kind of sleeping out, they figured it would be more beneficial to comply . Acting Associate Dean of Student The Fu...

Owner puts 2 million dollar price tag on Gateway [Newspaper Article] — Behrend Beacon (1998-2010) — 28 January 1999
Owner puts 2 million dollar price tag on Gateway Elizabeth Guelcher Layout Editor Although residents of Wesley ville and Haborcreek have been waiting out the drama of Gateway Rehabilitation for about the past three months, it seems that the end is in sight. With the victory of Gateway in the most recent appeal, all that stands between them and Kanty Prep is $2 million. The Gateway Rehabilitation Program was created for inmates who have been recently released from State prisons as a drug and alcohol rehabilitation center. This will be Gateway's second facility with the other located in Alaquippa, Pennsylvania. All of the residents of the Gateway facility would be Erie residents, which will house about SO men and women. The building is supposed to be leased to Gateway, but Ken Lochbaum, owner of the fromer Kanty Prep building, told residents at a meeting two weeks ago that the building is on the market for $2 million. At this point, buying the building is the only way communit...
