THE GANNON KNIGHT

Exit from Gannon brings editor back to the start

April 25, 2012

I can remember sitting in the hotter-than-hell Yehl Ballroom four years ago like it was on the other side of Easter break. It was boring orientation and I was certain my head would explode if I heard any more parents ask whether...

Team continues historic season

April 25, 2012

Usually at this time of the year the players on the Gannon University baseball team are looking ahead to their finals. Up until now though, it’s never been the Pennsylvania State Athletic Conference finals. With four games...

Time at The Knight provides plethora of great memories

April 18, 2012

It was a quarter after two o’clock Wednesday morning when I started writing this column. My second-to-last column – a column that most of you will be reading while I’m still in bed after a long production night. The...

Knight Vision

April 18, 2012

We’ve written one story about Jason Wahl and it’s one that we wish we never had to write. However, duty calls and our news editor, Tessy Pawlowski did a great job of consolidating the information she learned from a number...

Knights poised for playoff run

April 18, 2012

The last time Gannon University’s baseball team won as many games as it lost in the same season, Michael Tomko, the Knights’ cleanup hitter, couldn’t even handle a bat. In fact the junior slugger, who leads Gannon’s...

Joy gathered from writing increases with maturation

March 28, 2012

The shelves housing this year’s copies of past Gannon Knights are almost filled to capacity. If they were a hotel they’d be halfway through putting up the “No Vacancy” sign. By the time my writing career comes to an...

Knight Vision

March 28, 2012

If The Knight is assessing the university on its new grading scale, we’re giving it a C. Excuse me, I’m sorry; it’s actually a C-minus nowadays. You’re not such a big fan of the grading scale now, are you? While...

Scoreboard is be-all, end-all when judging worth of teams

March 21, 2012

Call me old-fashioned, but I think that, in a battle of two teams, the final score confirms which one is better. But apparently my logic is as outdated as Blockbuster. My friends, and even some writers in this very newsroom,...

Don’t let weather interfer with studies

March 21, 2012

If you’re reading this during class, stop. As much as we at The Knight don’t want to say it, you should put this paper down and pay attention. If you’re then tempted stare out the window and pout about how classes...

Selection Sunday memories serve as microcosm for life

March 14, 2012

During high school I was a firm proponent of making the Sunday of the NCAA Division I tournament’s selection show a national holiday. In fact, I think it should be to this very day. The second weekend in March has always...

Knight Vision

March 14, 2012

As citizens, it’s one of our most fundamental rights. As humans, it’s a key ingredient in satisfying our voracious appetite to be free. What The Knight is talking about, of course, its the opportunity to vote – an opportunity...

Life’s limited amount of time apparent during fishing trip

March 7, 2012

The current was too strong, the weather too cold and water too high to catch any fish Friday. The conditions were just right, however, to catch some perspective. I’ve been fishing alongside my father, a 64-year-old Vietnam...
