What's the deal with the lack of participation? [Newspaper Article] — Behrend Beacon (1998-2010) — 11 February 1999

What's the deal with the lack of participation? A view from the lighthouse There seems to be a total lack of participation by the part of students on campus. Activities, programs, and extracurricular activities are held on a continual basis throughout the campus, and only a small proportion of students attends these events. $220,000 will be allocated for student activities for the 1999-2000 school year. This amounts to approximately $75 per year that each student is charged. Each student is charged this fee whether they are involved or not in activities in campus. Students should get involved with how their money is being spent and should also join clubs that are being funded by the student activity fee. Without their input, decisions, as to whai the money should be spent on, wil\ be made by others. Students may not concur with these decisions made however, they have no right to complain. It's similar to the voting concept, it'you do not gel involved, you...

Letterto^the editor My View [Newspaper Article] — Behrend Beacon (1998-2010) — 11 February 1999

Letterto^the editor My View This country has been transfixed by the Clinton-Lewinsky affair for over a year now. We have been flooded with literally thousands of media-driven stories that have quenched a thirst for more tabloid journalism. Our nation is governed by the executive, the legislative, and the judiciary branches. These are maintained by checks and balances preventing the dominance of any single branch. The system was not established to let polling data, or powerful media moguls dictate our people's sense of eth ics. President Clinton, in my estimation, has worked well in managing our domestic affairs, and foreign affairs. I believe that he has received the "lion's share" of the credit for the robust economy. Like many presidential administrations in the past, the president has had his share of scandals. They include slich names as Paula Jones, Gennifer Flowers, and the Vince Foster incident among others. In addition, he lied to an army officer about entering Vietn...

Love should be expressed everyday [Newspaper Article] — Behrend Beacon (1998-2010) — 11 February 1999

Love should be expressed everyday LiveFromGuyana_AYQDELE. JON. ES Here we go again. It's only three days from Valentine's day, and all the hoopla has begun. Every year around this time we arc bombarded with pictures and images of roses, chocolates, and, of course, LOVE. Valentine's day honors love and those in love, yet the origin of this holiday is the death of a saint. Valentine's day is named after a Roman priest. Valentine, who secretly married young couples against an emperor's decree. He was arrested and beheaded on February 14 for defying the orders. After his death, Val entine was made a saint. Whether or not Valentine envisioned a holiday full of Hallmark cards, mylar balloons, and Godiva chocolates, one will never know. Nevertheless, that is what the holiday has become. After the Christmas decorations arc taken down, hearts and cupids are abundant everywhere. The upcoming weeks are filled with anxiety; how much do I spend on my valentine, how ...

How many planets do we have? [Newspaper Article] — Behrend Beacon (1998-2010) — 11 February 1999

How many planets do we have? The Lobster and the Music to the Dance of Life MIKE PERKINS Every child in elementary school learns that our solar system is made up of a star and nine planets. Neptune, Mercury, Venus, Earth. Mars, Jupiter, Saturn, Uranus, and Pluto. However, that number may be soon reduced by one. The planet Pluto may be soon downgraded to the status of minor planet, in the same class as asteroids and other large objects that orbit in the solar system. The downgrading of Pluto is causing quite a commotion in astronomical circles, notably among Americans, because Pluto is the only "planet" discovered by an American. Bui why drop Pluto into a lower classification? The reason is not too difficult to understand. First, is its size; it is smaller in size than the United States. Pluto's orbit is also not normal. Many people know that Pluto and Neptune occasionally switch places as the farthest planet from the sun. No other planets have orbits that cross each other,...

Bribery may be routine but I don't have to like it [Newspaper Article] — Behrend Beacon (1998-2010) — 11 February 1999

Bribery may be routine but I don't have to like it By Leonard Pitts Jr. Knight-Ridder Tribune So, I'm working for a certain nationally syndicated radio show, where one of my duties is to sift through the hundreds of letters listeners send each week asking us to dedicate songs to their loved ones. And I open one of those letters, and money falls out. It's not much money — maybe a buck or two. Just a little inducement to give this letter special attention, I tack the bills to the bulletin board, intending to send them back to their owner. Never get around to it, though. As best I can remember, the money was still on the board when 1 left that job for this one, eight years ago. The sender w'as a young person, which accounts for the modest size of the attempted bribe. But I always felt there was some minor insult implicit in the notion that our favor could be bought for money, two bucks or two hundred. I guess (hat only goes to show that I have absolutely no future as a bellhop, a...

Online retailers help students play 'buy' the book By Christine Tatum College Press Exchange CHICAGO (CPX) - While shopping for books this semester, Troy Dunmire spotted an intri guing ad in the student newspaper at the University of South Florida. It dared him to find "any other area college bookstore" offering books at lower prices. Campus bookstore officials were so confident it couldn't be done that they offered to pay double the difference to anyone who proved them wrong. Dunmire, the university's student body vice president, hopped online and made onl y one stop: VarsityBooks.com.

There s no excuse for athletes not making the grade [Newspaper Article] — Behrend Beacon (1998-2010) — 11 February 1999

There s no excuse for athletes not making the grade By Teneshia Ashley Knight-Ridder Newspapers TALLAHASSEE. Fla. - Some athletes have it made. You know, the ones who have phones ringing off the hook during all hours of the night. The callers, of course, are Division I college coaches, making all kinds of promises to these gifted athletes. The coaches tell them they will start their first season. They'll win a championship ring. But more importantly, they will get a free education. Thirty-one Tallahassee-area athletes signed letters of intent to colleges on Wednesday, National Signing Day. But some of them will never suit up for the schools. See, there's a catch. Before these players enroll, they must earn at least a 2.5 grade-point average in 13 core courses and make a certain minimum score on their choice of college-entrance exams, 820 on the SAT or 17 on the ACT. These standards are known as Prop 42. Many athletes are failing to meet those standards. At least four high sc...

Students help free man after almost 17 years on death row By Mark Lebien And Charlie Meyerson Knight-Ridder Newspapers CHICAGO - Anthony Porter, who came within days of being executed by lethal injection in September, walked out of jail Friday afternoon after spending nearly 17 years in prison for a double murder that another man now says he committed. "It feels marvelous to be outside," Porter said after being released. "I'm free." Porter, wearing black jeans and a black jacket instead of the brown prison uniform he had been wearing just hours earlier, said the outside world "looked great." He said he can't wait to gel home to see his family and eat a steak dinner. And he said his faith in God helped him get through the ordeal. Porter's release followed a hearing earlier in the day in Cook County Criminal Court. There, Assistant State's Ally. Thomas Gainer made a motion that, based on new evidence, Porter should be released on his own recognizance. Judge Thomas R. Fitzgeral...

Fraternity party spurs meningitis scare at Penn State College Press Exchange STATE COLLEGE, Pa. (CPX) - About 300 students at Penn State have sought medical treatment after potentially being exposed to bacterial meningitis during a weekend fraternity party. Doctors say the chances that any students at the party will contract the disease are low, but they have given a single dose of an antibiotic to most seeking treatment. It is not known how many people attended a party at the Pi Lambda Phi house on Saturday. A young woman enrolled at Shippensburg University, whose name has not been released, was diagnosed with the illness and listed in critical condition at a local hospital on Monday.

Court: Sears not liable for student's suicide [Newspaper Article] — Behrend Beacon (1998-2010) — 11 February 1999

Court: Sears not liable for student's suicide College Press Exchange CINCINNATI (CPX) - Sears, Roebuck and Co. and one of its security guards are not responsible for the suicide of a college student accused of shoplifting, a federal appeals court ruled. The estate of 20-year-old Grace Ko filed suit against the multi-million-dollar corporation and one of its guards, alleging that Ko's death stemmed from false accusations against her. The estate also accused Sears of fraudulent misrepresentation and inflicting emotional distress. The 6th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals disagreed, upholding a lower court's 1997 ruling in favor of Sears. Ko, a Chinese immigrant studying at the University of Michigan, killed herself in 1994 by jumping from her 18th-story apartment window one day after she was arrested for shoplifting at a Sears store In Ann Arbor, Mich. Ko denied the charge and tried to pay for the goods the next day because she said she feared being deported. According to court re...

Spread of Spanish unwelcome by some [Newspaper Article] — Behrend Beacon (1998-2010) — 11 February 1999

Spread of Spanish unwelcome by some By William Branigin, The Washington Post ATLANTA _ As the nation's Hispanic population expands dramatically, with Spanish permeating not only "gateway" cities like Miami and New York but major heartland capitals as well, legislators and civic leaders are confronting new questions about how, or whether, to regulate the emergence of Spanish as a lingua franca of American life. The debate is moving beyond familiar controversies over bilingual education in states such as Florida and California, and is now washing into small towns and Southern cities where Americans until recently have had little direct involvement in arguments over whether the primacy of English matters and why. Most communities seem to be responding to the spread of Spanish with acceptance and accommodation, in part because businesses and politicians of all stripes increasingly recognize the enormous buying power and political clout of the nation's Hispanics. That purchasing ...

Kenya stops extradition of embassy bombing suspect to U.S. [Newspaper Article] — Behrend Beacon (1998-2010) — 11 February 1999

Kenya stops extradition of embassy bombing suspect to U.S. By Ann M. Simmons, Los Angeles Times NAIROBI, Kenya _ After claims that the suspect had been tortured and unlawfully detained, a Kenyan high court has stopped the FBI from extraditing a Kenyan mechanic to United States for further questioning about last year's bombing of the U.S. Embassy in Nairobi. The court, in the coastal city of Mombasa, Friday ordered that Ali Mohfoudh Salim either be released or be brought before a Kenyan court as soon as possible. It also ordered the immigration department to prevent security agents from taking Salim out ot the country. Salim was arrested last Thursday by FBI agents who, the court was told, suspected that the mechanic's garage might have been used to build the vehicle that transported the bomb to Nairobi. The action to prevent Salim's extradition marks the first time the FBI has faced a legal obstacle in its quest to arrest suspects in the Aug. 7 blast, which killed 213 people...

Trial starting for bounty hunter who claimed to be FBI [Newspaper Article] — Behrend Beacon (1998-2010) — 11 February 1999

Trial starting for bounty hunter who claimed to be FBI By Brooke A. Masters, The Washington Post The first sign of trouble came when Elizabeth Ann Behrmann saw armed men in "SWAT type" uniforms running across her Reston, Va., back yard. Then came the knock at the door: "FBI. Open up." On the doorstep stood a man in an FBI baseball hat, 6-foot-7, nearly 300 pounds, wearing a badge around his neck and holding a drawn handgun along his right thigh. He told her he wanted to search her home for a fugitive named "Freeman," according to federal court documents. Behrmann asked if he had a warrant, but, she told authorities, the man replied: "I'm with the FBI. I don't need a warrant. I can search your house without your permission." So she let him in. In truth, Buddy Lee Spenser, 42 isn't an FBI agent at all. The Haymarket, Va., resident is a bounty hunter, and he goes on trial this week in federal court on charges of illegally posing as a federal agent as he tracked bail jumpers. Sp...
