Music Underground to Feature Stax of Trax

You don't have to be an audiophile or a hipster to appreciate the smooth, warm quality of a record. In fact, the Music Underground is inviting anyone and everyone to their record show, Stax of Trax, tomorrow.

"We want to bring the record subculture to the mainstream audience," Jesse Ruegg, co-owner of The Music Underground and Chronic Town, said.

Jane Goodall Speaks of Discovery and Inspiration

There wasn't any monkey business for Jane Goodall at her visit to Penn State yesterday as part of SPA's Distinguished Speakers Series. To my personal disappointment, there weren't any monkeys at all. In fact Goodall studies chimpanzees, which aren't even monkeys. Her message was clear as she spoke a stirring proclamation of hope to the next generation of young activists. The Eisenhower Auditorium was all ears as she shared her vision of a more compassionate human race that focuses on the welfare of nature, animals and mankind.

Former Penn State Student to Speak at State Theatre

Towns often take pride in celebrities and public figures whose early lives and development occurred within. However, some townsfolk who achieve a great deal of success manage to slip through the cracks of notoriety. That may be the case for Ben Feller, the next writer to speak at Penn State’s Foster Conference of Distinguished Writers. Raised in Boalsburg, Feller attended Penn State and graduated with a degree in journalism. Impressive as a Penn State diploma may be, that’s not the source of his star status. One name propels Feller to prominence: Barack Obama. Reporting on all facets of Obama’s presidency is a daily task for Feller, as he is the chief White House correspondent for the Associated Press. Although many in State College are aware of Feller’s achievements, especially due to his cover story in the May/June 2009 issue of the Penn Stater, he still seems to be flying under the radar. That could change once Feller returns on March 29 for the Foster Conference.
