By MELSSA NAYMK Buldng a lvng and learnng communty on the campus of the Unversty has become one of the prme goals for students, faculty and admnstraton. Student Lfe At the present tme, there are four resdence halls on campus whch center ther students around the lvng and learnng goal. Prout Hall, Chapman Hall, the Honors Dorm n Darrow Hall, and the musc major floor located n Batchelder Hall are resdence halls whch allow students to nteract wth others who have the same nterests. n Prout Hall, all the resdents are nterested n comng together Freshmen approve Chapman program Chapman freshmen gave postve responses to a fall survey. By SARAH BEDNARSK n October, the Unversty surveyed freshmen n order to learn what they thought about college lfe. The results of the survey showed that freshmen overall, but partcularly those n Chapman Hall, were satsfed wth the campus communty. Chapman s an all-freshmen lvng unt n whch classrooms and professor offces are on the frst floor of the hall tself. The resdence hall was desgned as a lvng and workng communty n whch students and teachers can nteract wth each other both n the classroom and n a socal settng. Accordng to Bll Knght, drector of nsttutonal research, the survey was done to see how freshmen adjusted to college lfe. He sad t was the frst tme ths type of survey was done. Knght sad the results showed that the majorty of the students were satsfed wth the Unversty. The survey asked about 20 questons and nvolved both personal and academc aspects, he sad. "We wanted to see ther transton from hgh school to college," Knght sad. "(The survey) was looked at, then pulled apart by whch students lved n Chapman and whch students were n what Englsh class." Accordng to Jack Nachbar, Campus professor, 2,000 freshmen were surveyed. The results of the survey showed that Chapman Hall resdents overall were satsfed wth the Unversty campus and communty, Nachbar- sad. He sad some questons asked ncluded whether or not the Unversty would be recommended to others and "Are the faculty and staff easly accessble?" Nachbar sad 91 percent of students n Chapman sad they would recommend the campus to others n comparson to 79 percent of the overall freshmen surveyed that ndcated they would do the same. He sad another nterestng result was that 77 percent of Chapman resdents sad they lked the socal lfe at the Unversty when only 68 percent of freshmen overall sad they dd. Ths s the frst tme a survey lke ths one has been admnstered to freshmen, Knght sad. He sad ths survey showed that the program at Chapman appeared to be workng. "t's new and we have the expectaton to do ths agan," he sad. " would hope by lookng at the (Chapman) desgn we can explore t for the future." Tom Klen, drector of Chapman, sad that whle the survey shows postve results t s stll new and n the expermental stages. "t'll report more postve results because of the newness of the program," Klen sad. "However, t also shows that we'- Unversty popular culture re dong thngs well." to partcpate n dorm actvtes lke dnners, sports and holday partes. Chapman was created for frstyear students to allow them to nteract on a day-to-day bass wth students lke themselves. The honors hall was created for those students who are nvolved n the honors program, although not all students who are part of the program lve n the hall. The floor created for musc majors n Batchelder encourages muscans to chat wth other students who show ther same enthusasm for musc. Next fall, a new dorm wll be opened for students who wll be takng the same courses revolvng around health and human servces accordng to Steven Rchardson, vce provost for undergraduate affars and dean for undergraduate studes. However, the dorm wll also be open to those students who are nvolved wth the arts and scences, educaton and health scence majors. The dorm wll be called Health Scences Resdental Communty. The dea came from the vce presdent and provost, Charles Mddleton, who then thought of Hello Kesha Keller, lower rght, talks to a classmate Calegh Craft, left, as they hang upsde down whle playng on the playground wth other SkUers advsed to take proper precautons Unversty admnstraton and student skers feel that skng can be a safe sport f people make t so. By BRAND BARHTE Soarng down hlls, flyng over ce, and plowng through snowflakes. s t a brd? s t a plane? No... t's a sker. The sport of skng took a turn for the worse when two well-known men were klled n sklngrelated accdents over the holdays. The frst death occured when Mchael Kennedy, 39, ded on New Year's Eve when he ht a tree whle playng a footballon-sks game n Aspen, Colo. A week later Sonny Bono, 62, pop-star-turned-polltlcan ded LgA> Publc Safety when he sked off the tral he was on and collded wth a tree. Bono suffered fatal head and neck njures n Lake Tahoe, Calf. Skng has always been a popular pastme, but s t a dangerous one? Rchard Bowers, Unversty drector of recreaton sports and avd sker, beleves that skng s only as dangerous as the sker makes t. "From a lethal pont of vew skng s relatvely safe," sad Bowers. Bowers sked n Aspen on Copper Bull durng Wnter Break. He sked the same slope that Kennedy ded on. Accordng to the Colorado records, from there were 3.37 njures for every 1000 Sker Days. There are approxmately 40,000 njures durng a typcal season. Bowers beleves that skng can be safe f proper precautons are taken. He warns skers to beware of ther envronment, watch for other skers, and most mportantly, respect your own ablty. "You need to be a good ctzen on the slope," sad Bowers. He also advses skers to dress properly and to be aware of dehydraton when skng n the mountans. Bowers also thnks that skers must remember that the downhll sker always has the rght-of-way. n addton, drnkng alcohol also makes skng accdents more lkely. "t s only as dangerous as you make t," sad Jonathan Sol, senor nternatonal busness major. Sol s a member of the Unversty's Sk Club. The Sk Club s governed by the Unted States Collegate Assocaton (USCA). They compete n slalom and gant slalom racng n Mans vlle and Cleveland. He has sked for three years. Despte the fact that they ended n deaths, he s not concerned about the recent skng accdents. He beleves that the accdents are tragc, yet could have been avoded. Sol beleves that skng s a safe sport as long as people sk conservatvely. " don't try to do extreme skng," sad Sol. Presdent of the Sk Club Carey Vandersall, a junor marketng major, was also saddened by the skng deaths, but s not concerned about the safety of skng n general. Vandersall has suffered an arm njury from skng, but beleves that njures are common n any sport. " dont thnk t s anymore dangerous than any other sport. t s up to the ndvdual," sad Vandersall. Clyde Wlls, dean of health and human servces. Wlls, along wth Mary Kay Jones-O'Nell, advser for the college of health and human servces, took on the project of formng the new resdence hall. The dorm wll be located n Dunbar and wll house approxmately 300 students. t wll be a frst come, frst serve bass, but accordng to Jones, the dorm wll be 80 percent freshman and 20 percent upperclassmen. Those students who are nterested n lvng n the Health Scences Resdental Communty next fall should regster when - - chldren, the housng forms come out n the mddle of the sprng semester. "The bggest problem wll be seeng who s admtted and who s dened," sad Jones-O'Nell. New classrooms wll bt created, but revew sessons for courses wll be held wthn the hall by faculty members. Pror to the 1960s, the Unversty used to have lvng and learnng resdental dorms that proved, through research, that students have a better overall college experence, explaned Jones-O'Nell. - "» Anoclalcd Prn pk««cheap drugs cause costly problems Crack cocane contrbutes to socal problems n Cleveland. CLEVELAND - There s evdence of wanng use of crack cocane n Cleveland but socal problems caused by the drug reman, The Plan Dealer reported today. For years, Cleveland was a natonal leader n the abuse of crack, a form of cocane that can be smoked. Cuyahoga County topped the naton n the number of chldren, when arrested for crmes, wth cocane n ther bodes. n 1991, federal records show, more than three quarters of the women arrested n Cleveland had cocane n ther urne, a hgher percentage than n Los Angeles, New York or Washngton D.C. About half of the men arrested n Cleveland had cocane n ther bodes. The number of people smokng the drug has dropped rapdly, law enforcement authortes told the newspaper. The percentage of women and chldren arrested wth cocane n ther urne has fallen by a thrd n Cleveland snce James Hummel, chef of Cleveland's Drug Enforcement Admnstraton offce, sad a lngerng result of crack s ts mpact on famles. "t's tearng them apart," he sad. The reasons for the appeal of crack, the newspaper sad, was ts cheap cost, at $5 per hgh, and easy avalablty on street corners. t

Tl Be You"-The Replacements One thng 1 learned over the long and gruelng nterm between semesters known as Chrstmas break s that ths school and town are mssng a lttle spontanety and crazness. The break sent me back to school wth a lot of new energy and desre to make somethng happen. f s the last semester for me and thousands of other people and realzed that there s really nothng left to do here that haven't already done. The outlet for all ths energy and probable senorts s leadng a crusade to make ths communty more spontaneous and on-the-edge. Ths Unversty s a perfectly capable mddle-of-the-road smalltown school surrounded by cornfelds. We have a bad football team, a thousand smlar bars, and somehow got lucky and sent a guy to the N.B.A. (He even gets to go to a wanner place than BG, Vancouver, Canada.) We have hundreds of organzatons to jon but nothng out there seems to really scream "Yes, ths s so cool that t makes me want to jump out of bed n the mornng and brave the cold." We also have buldngs that ndvdually look okay, but put next to each other they make a clashng fashon queston. Put all ths and a few other problems together and you gve people a burnng desre to do somethng dfferent. We can't be satsfed wth Where the Day Takes You jjmrdor Wm dong the same thng, whch s nothng, every day. What we need, short of a good healthy rot to protest somethng lke the Rec shortenng ts hours or our on-gong parkng crss, s a few smple acts of random spontanety and crazness to break up the monotony. How and what to do are the questons we need to ask ourselves. Unfortunately one of my favorte deas, legalzed grafft anywhere you want, sn't lkely to be condoned by the local authortes. n place of that how about more thngs lke what one art student dd last fall. He covered the open ar corrdor between Unversty and Hanna Halls wth flyers that had Jesus' face on them. The entre floor was completely covered for people to see frst thng n the mornng. t dsrupted the flow of traffc through there but probably made people stop and thnk. 1 talked to the guy who dd t but he wouldn't tell me what hs message or motvaton was. Ths scene would be just another day at a place lke Mchgan or Berkeley but at Bowlng Green t s somethng completely new. Once the snow hts there wll be a great opportunty for somethng nterestng. No, not a snowball fght or snowman that's all been done to death. heard from a frend from Wsconsn that students at that school rolled a snow ball bg enough to block traffc when they rolled t nto a road. guess the polce were called out and there were enough people that they, as the polce were chasng them, were able to roll t onto other streets. They contnued ths game untl fnally they got caught. Also at Wsconsn when the Board of Trustees approved a tuton hke a campus group erected a 12-foot snow pens to protest. When we have tuton hkes we are lucky to see a letter to the edtor n the paper. How borng s that? f s certanly no match for a frozen movable roadblock. We need to have an envronment where you really don't know whaf s gong to happen when you go to school that day. You can't let people get too comfortable wth ther envronment. You need to keep people a lttle edgy and unsure of whether or not, durng the course of ther routne day, they mght see or experence somethng they never have before. All great thngs happen when they aren't expected or planned. The best nghts out are often when you decde to dtch the plans you made and the people you always see and do somethng dfferent. Boredom lke ths eventually leads to nsanty and s the reason postal workers go nuts and mddle age whte males run out on ther wves wth ther 20-somethng secretares. People make fun of Brother Jed and other crazed speakers n the "free-speech zone." thnk Brother Jed does us a great servce, not by what he says, but by the fact that he says somethng at all and causes people to take a break from ther routne and lsten. f we could get other people to get out there t would be a great step for our campus. n summary, ths communty would be much more exctng f we added a lttle spontanety to t. Okay, can hear the crtcs now. Makng a conscous decson to add spontanety s probably a contradcton n terms but f f s a lttle crazy that s the pont too. Brandon VJray s the Wednesday columnst. He opted not to go pro or sell out to THE MAN and has returned to the page he was unceremonously booted from two years ago. He wants to thank John, Rhonda and anyone else who helped hm survve last semester and taught hm the value of spontanety. Questons can be sent to Students need more tme to move back n magne comng back to school, movng all of your stuff back n, greetng your roommate and then unpackng n a random fashon. Probably not too far off from many of your presprng semester experences, rght? Well, add to that tryng to catch up wth your frends, buy your books and fnd your classrooms. Qute a load. Oh, f you lve on campus you have 18 hours to do all ths, plus eat and sleep before classes start the next day. Why? Because the resdence halls don't open untl the day before classes, at 1 p.m. Ths leaves a lot to do wth very lmted tme for many. Movng rooms, adjustng to new roommates and generally catchng up are nearly mpossble because of the tme constrant. Over half of the Unversty undergraduate populaton s affected by ths polcy. There's lots of grumblng, but not much progress to accommodate the students. On-campus students are restrcted to one specfc day to return. Ths s dffcult f you need to arrange a convenent rde back to Bowlng Green. f you wanted to come back from vacaton, to work or clean or get organzed for the semester, you lose that opton f you lve on-campus. The News had dffculty wth ths n many aspects. Tryng to nstall our new computer system and work wth the new edtors needed to be done before the semester began. The search for alternate lvng optons was dffcult. t would be pretty hard for the sports edtor to commute from Wsconsn. Ths practce keeps students from returnng to campus to work, and makes t dffcult for the offces and departments that employee these students to be organzed before the semester begns. t s understood that the R.A.'s need tme to prepare, but exceptons should be made for legtmate reasons, such as work and responsbltes.

STATE Vonovch orders protecton of farmland COLUMBUS - Gov. George Vonovch has ordered state agences to take nto account the protecton of farmland when they make decsons affectng land acquston and development. Vonovch ordered the agences to report whch actons may threaten farmland and what steps can be taken to mnmze the loss. The reports are to be submtted to Lt. Gov. Nancy Hollster by June 30. They wll become part of the Oho Farmland Protecton Plan that s to be drafted by the Oho Department of Agrculture's Offce of Farmland Preservaton. Federal statstcs show that between 1954 and 1992, more than one-quarter of Oho farmland - about 5.7 mllon acres - was lost to non-agrcultural uses such as urban development, recreaton, reforestaton and mnng. Vonovch sad contnued loss of farmland could hurt the state's $67.7 bllon-a-year agrcultural ndustry. ssung the order was one of several recommendatons the Oho Farmland Preservaton Task Force made when t ssued ts fnal report last June.

No. 2 for fashon dshonors was Ellen DeGeneres ("Throw those baggy fashon bombs back n the closet"), followed by Madonna ("Let's be blunt, yesterday's 'Evta' s today's Velveeta"). "Despte the encouragng fact that old-fashoned glamour made a mn-comeback n 1997, the fnal results of ths year's lst amply reflect the fact that borng bombs, dowdy duds and frumpy flops contnue to ltter our landscape wth wretched regularty," Blackwell sad. n fourth place was Pamela Anderson Lee, followed by Jennfer Tlly, Sgoumey Weaver, Emma Thompson, Alca Slverstone, Frances Fsher and Marlyn Manson ("He looks lke Alce Cooper dong Rosemary's Baby").

Experts lnk secondhand smoke exposure to permanent damage CHCAGO - Cgarette smokng and exposure to secondhand smoke both sgnfcantly hasten hardenng of the arteres, and the damage may be permanent, a new study suggests. An estmated 30,000 to 60,000 annual deaths n the Unted States can be attrbuted to secondhand smokng, wrote the authors, led by epdemologst George Howard at Wake Forest Unversty n Wnston-Salem, N.C Ther study appears n Wednesday's ssue of The Journal of the Amercan Medcal Assocaton. Prevous studes have shown that secondhand smoke, lke actve smokng, can kll by causng more acute but reversble prob- lems, such as thckenng of the blood. The Amercan Heart Assocaton, whch advocates bannng smokng n all publc places, sad ths was the frst study to lnk passve smokng wth narrowng n the carotd arteres, whch carry blood to the bran. Carotdartery narrowng "ndcates that other blood vessels are smlarly affected. ncludng ones n the heart muscle," the assocaton sad n a news release. Dr. Stanton A Glantz, a secondhand smoke expert at the Unversty of Calforna-San Francsco, sad the study "provdes a real mportant brdge" between studes that have found that cgarette smoke causes deteroratng arteres and studes showng that passve smokers have an ncreased rsk of fatal heart attacks. "Ths flls n that mssng lnk," Glantz sad. Tom Laura, a spokesman for The Tobacco nsttute, whch s funded by the tobacco ndustry, sad advocates there had not yet evaluated the study. But he noted: "The majorty of studes do not show any ncreased rsk for non-smokers. We consder the scence to be nconclusve." Howard and colleagues used ultrasound to measure how much the carotd-artery walls thckened over a three-year perod n 10,914 adults aged Subjects who had smoked on average one pack a day for 33 years had a 50 percent ncrease n the progresson of hardenng of ther arteres when compared to non-smokers. The condton, called atheroscleross, s lnked Senator wants to revst space WASHNGTON -- Sen. John Glenn's ades have found themselves on rumor control duty amd ncreasng speculaton that NASA s ready to make a decson on puttng the former astronaut back nto space. Glenn's press secretary, Jack Sparks, devoted much of Tuesday to denyng reports tlat NASA was posed to put Glenn on a space shuttle msson. "Senator Glenn has not been nformed of a decson regardng a possble space flght," sad Sparks. Glenn, 76, wants to become the oldest astronaut, and NASA Admnstrator Danel Goldln sad last week that the proposal was under serous consderaton and a decson s possble n a matter of weeks or months. Feb. 20 s the annversary of Glenn's hstorc 1962 space msson, when he became the frst Amercan to orbt the Earth and was haled for hs bravery at a tme when rocket travel was new and dangerous. n the decades snce, Glenn has undergone yearly follow-up medcal tests for NASA, braggng that he passed each one wth flyng colors. On Tuesday, Sparks declned tu answer questons about Glenn's most recent NASA physcal and whether t dffered from past routne annual tests. "Senator Glenn s n extremely good physcal condton but feels t's premature to dscuss any medcal matters untl NASA makes a decson," sad Sparks. Mchael Braukus, a spokesman for the space shuttle program, sad he also had spent the day denyng the accuracy of a broadcast report that sad a Glenn flght was defnte. "There's stll no decson," he sad. Glenn, who exercses daly and stll plots hs own plane, has offered hmself as a human test subject for studes of osteopoross and changes n the body's mmune system durng agng. Space s a good place for geratrc study because there are smlartes between what happens to a body n zero gravty and what happens naturally over tme on Earth For Glenn to fly agan, NASA would have to change ts polcy aganst cvlans n space. The polcy was establshed after the 1986 Challenger exploson klled teacher Chrsta McAulf fe. Goldln also has sad another Glenn flght would be possble only f the admnstrator s convnced of the senator's safety and the scentfc' value of the research n whch he would partcpate. Glenn s preparng to retre from the U.S. Senate at the end of ths year. A Democrat, he has represented Oho there snce He wll turn 77 n July. TV depcts volence responsbly LOS ANGELES - A three-year study concluded that broadcast televson networks have become more responsble about depctng volence - wth the excepton of a new "shockumentary" type show that explots footage of death and destructon. Fox's "World's Scarest Polce Shootouts" and CBS' "The World's Most Dangerous Anmals" were among the programs cted for ther grsly content n the fnal UCLA Televson Volence Report, ssued Tuesday. "Whle the majorty of programmng deals responsbly wth volence ssues, realty-based specals do not," sad Jeffrey Cole, the report's author and drector of the UCLA Center for Communcaton Polcy. The study, whch began wth an analyss of the season, found that the networks have tempered the amount and nature of volence ared. But Cole sad that t remans a part of televson and parents should be vglant. " don't thnk they would necessarly let ther chldren have free regn through televson," Cole sad. "t's not a stuaton where they cannot pay attenton." The networks, whch fnanced the UCLA study, are not held blameless: There are excessvely volent shows amed at both chldren and adults, ncludng the abrupt rse of what the study dubbed "shockumentares." The genre was vrtually unseen on TV n the frst year of the study, but was represented by fve programs n and by 16 n the season. Crtcsm already has been leveled at such shows. "They're reprehensble," sad George Gerbner, a Temple Unversty professor who studes volence on televson. "They explot the worst fears and nghtmares of people." A call for comment on the study was not returned Monday by Fox, home to many of the realty shows. A CBS spokesman sad the report had yet to be revewed. The UCLA project also found that problems reman n four of the most popular chldren's shows. "Snster combat volence" was cted n "Teenage Mutant Nlnja Turtles" and "Project G.e.e.Ce.R" on CBS, and n "Power Rangers Turbo" and "X-Men" on Fox. As n past years, theatrcal moves contan some of the most ntense volence on televson, wth "Under Sege" and "Tombstone" among the examples offered by the study. Of the 107 seres that ared on the major networks ABC, CBS, Fox and NBC n , only two programs ("Walker, Texas Ranger"on CBS and thocanceed "Dark Skes" on NBC) rased "frequent concerns" about volence, the study found. That's compared wth fve seres n and nne n Occasonal concerns were recorded about sx seres n the latest season studed, ncludng the Fox programs "Mllennum," "X-Fles," "Slders" and "Amerca's Most Wanted: Amerca Fghts Back," as well as ABC's "Hgh ncdent" and CBS* "Nash Brdges." Researchers dd more than count epsodes of volence; they vewed each ncdent n context, accordng to the report Programs found to use volence approprately and show ts consequences as well were not cted as problems. The bggest mprovement has come n the category of on-ar promotons and teasers for upcomng TV seres and moves. Sucde may be lnked to gamblng DETROT - Casno communtes have sucde rates several tmes hgher than would be expected for communtes wthout legalzed gamblng, a researcher has found. That pattern could repeat tself n Detrot, whch recently a- warded lcenses to three casno groups, predcted Davd Phllps, a Unversty of Calforna professor n San Dego who conducted the study. "Economc desperaton s lnked to sucde," Phllps told The Detrot News for a Monday story. "And we know that for some people, gamblng s lnked to economc desperaton." Gamblng proponents have crtczed hs fndngs, sayng a drect lnk cannot be proven. The study dd not examne the crcumstances of each sucde for any drect lnk to gamblng. t's too soon to say whether the Wndsor casnos, whch opened across the border from Detrot n 1994, have affected the sucde rate there and n Mchgan, sad expert Angela Kennedy. She s executve drector of the Neghborhood Servces Organzaton, whch operates a 24-hour sucde preventon lne n Detrot. Compulsve gamblng experts say t takes up to fve years after a casno opens for the surroundng communty to feel the full mpact. n Wndsor, the numbers of sucdes snce the casno opened n 1994 have been uneven. Last yea, 27 people took ther lves n the Ontaro cty, up from 26 n n 1995, there were 25 sucdes and n 1996, there were 41. Wndsor polce Deputy Chef Glenn Stannard sad he couldn't make any connecton between hs cty's sucde totals and ts two casnos because he hadn't studed each death report. to strokes, heart attacks and other cardovascular problems. Among past smokers - who had prevously smoked an average of a pack dally for 25 years - a 25 percent ncrease n progresson was found. Among non-smokers who reported exposure to secondhand smoke for an average of 18 to 20 hours weekly, there was a 20 percent ncrease n the progresson of the condton when compared wth people wthout such exposure. The authors also found that some former smokers faced the same degree of arteral narrowng even 20 years after they had qut. An accompanyng JAMA edtoral notes that other research has suggested cgarette smoke damages cells lnng the arteres. Flynt plans to sell adult vdeos CNCNNAT - The Cty Councl has tred to quash Hustler publsher Larry Flynt's plans to sell adult vdeos n hs downtown bookstore. Councl met n emergency sesson Monday to close a loophole n a law requrng adult bookstores to be lcensed. The law requres a lcense for a busness carryng a sgnfcant or substantal amount of sexually explct merchandse and a busness makng a sgnfcant or substantal amount of ts money from sexually explct merchandse. The law does not defne what s sgnfcant or substantal. Untl Monday, sexually explct vdeotapes, compact dscs and other nonprnted materals were not counted toward the sgnfcant or substantal amount. Wth no dscusson, councl voted 8-0 to nclude those materals. "We want to make sure ths law s complete," sad Counclma. - ll Hemlch, who has sponsored the zonng and lcensng laws Flynt had sad he would start sellng Hustlerproduced vdeos at the store next month And he sad he would send copes to local meda and prosecutors. "1 really dont gve a damn," Flynt sad of councl's acton Monday. Cty law says adult bookstores and clubs may locate only n areas zoned for medum and heavy manufacturng. That law s temporary, but councl s expected to make lt permanent later ths month The cty s nvestgatng whether Flynt's store qualfes as an adult bookstore and s volatng the zonng and lcensng laws. Flynt has not appled for a lcense, and the store s not located n an ndustral area. The Hustler store opened n October. Flynt estmated that 30 percent of hs store's contents would be adult materal, ncludng magaznes and sex toys. The rest would be manstream newspapers, magaznes and books. He sad Monday the vdeotapes would not change the composton, and that 30 to 40 percent of hs sales have been of adult materals. L A,

Whle dscussons were gong on there Monday, Justce De- partment lawyers n Washngton, D.C. were consderng a possble plea bargan to end the tangled tral and send Kaczynsk to prson for lfe. Attorney General Janet Reno has repeatedly rejected a plea bargan offer. But after a week of turmol brought on by Kaczynsk's bd to defend hmself and hs apparent sucde attempt, defense lawyers asked - and the government agreed - to reopen plea dscussons. "We agreed, because t has always been our poston that we are open to further talks," one source told on condton of anonymty.

7 page 6 The BG News Wednesday, January 14, 1998 SPORTS Sports Edtor Jason McMahon The Colonel leads troops nto battle The Colonel s here to stay. Dan Daklch s the coach that BG men's basketball has needed over the past three years. Adversty does not phase hm, controversy does not make hm shrnk, and poor playng and/or offcatng wll not be tolerated. n short, BG has a qualty coach for the frst tme snce Bll Ftch left for the pros. One who cannot see the nfluence of Daklch s hs mentor. ndana coach Bobby Knght, a.k.a. The General, s blnd. The te-rppng ncdent earler ths season only renforces ths theory. There are some n the BG communty who stll doubt the capabltes of The Colonel. To those doubters, say examne what happened last Saturday aganst Eastern Mchgan. BG came nto Anderson Arena wth a depleted roster that ncluded the loss of Anthony Stacey. Controversal fnsh or not, BG beat the Md- Amercan Conference favorte - wth one proverbal arm behnd ts back. Can you magne a Jm Larranaga-coached team pullng off such a feat? What part of "yeah, rght" don't you understand? Grt and determnaton are two ntangbles that Coach Larranaga was severely lackns. These same qualtes ware frmly ngraned n Dakch after 17 years of tutorng by Knght. Knght's nfluence on Dakch s somethng that many BG fans wanted - and feared. They wanted a Knght-sh atttude to brng some ntensty to the Falcons. They feared t because that same ntensty could drve away some BG players n the same way they were drven from Knght's program. When Phl Murray left the team earler ths season, some may have argued that the abandonng had already begun. Dan Dakch, however, s a breed of coach that BG has not ' seen n a long tme. You ether play hard for hm or you're rdng the bench. That knd of atttude s exactly what a basketball program needs to get ts team to the top. Stll, Rome wasn't bult n a day and BG men's basketball ddn't slde to medocrty n one season. t wll probably take a couple of seasons - and a healthy Anthony Stacey - for the Falcons to be recognzed as a perrenal MAC contender. Coach Larranaga's one savng grace was that he was an excellent recruter. Stacey, Antono Danels and Shane See LEONARD, page nne.

BG began ts league season on Dec. 29, wth a convncng 13-polnt wn aganst MAC East's top pck, Mam. BG played well down the stretch, tralng most of the frst half, but runnng away wth t n the fnal 20 mnutes. "That was a bg game for us because you want to get started out well n your league," sad coach Dan Daklch.

Kent, the preseason favorte to wn the MAC East and the conference Tournament, s off to ts best start n the league n 16 years. The Flashes are notorous for a relentless pressure defense, one that has hassled opponents nto an average of 32.6 turnovers per game.

The Flashes dd lose pont guard BJ. Smth-Goldman to graduaton. But even wthout her dogged defense, Clark expects nothng dfferent from Kent. "Ther style s bascally gong to stay the same," Clark sad.

Whle CBS was nterested n all three packages, the AFC was the most appealng, because t was undervalued n the last deal. More mportantly, CBS owns seven statons n AFC markets, compared wth three for NBC.
