YSU elevator accident triggers probe

Boy, this story brings back memories!

I had a similar experience in a dorm elevator at the University of Wisconsin-Madison when I was a student there in the late 1970s. We overloaded the elevator when everybody was rushing to get to final exams. The darn thing flew right past floors, 5-4-3-2-1-basement, and stopped when it hit the concrete about three or four feet below the basement floor. There was a loud grating noise, the lights went off and we all bounced up a couple of feet before crashing back down to the elevator floor.

I don't recall anyone being injured beyond a few bruises, but I do recall us screaming and banging on the car doors for somebody to get us out of there. We also heard lots of laughing outside that elevator car.

Funny thing was, most of us could care less about the injuries. We just wanted to get to our final exams on time. If you were late, you often found the lecture hall doors locked. In other words, you were out of luck and in real danger of failing a class.

I can believe this story.

Jon Heacock resigns as YSU football coach

Nonsocialist: You seem to know so much, maybe you should take over as head coach. Wait, how about you just hold off until tomorrow when the AD follows your recommendation and resigns himself. Then, you can be king of the hill.

Best of luck, Coach Heacock. Your hard work and dedication to YSU is much appreciated.

P.S. Nonsocialist aside, the rest of us cheered on the Penguins every game.

Summers ends fall with a win as Penguins rally in the fourth

Great finish to an exciting game. It's nice to see the team finish the season with two victories. I say keep the coach.

YSU rallies past North Dakota State

nonsocialist: How can a so-called "lifelong Penguin fan" ever justify wanting the team to lose?! Give me a break.
