A Kutztown University police officer is asking a federal appeals court to rule that he had the right to "refuse an unconstitutional order" to disperse antiabortion and antihomosexual demonstrators. Cpl. Steve Armbruster said he was ordered to "push" off campus 15 protesters from Repent America, an evangelical group based in Lansdowne that was being confronted by hundreds of student counter-demonstrators. Armbruster refused an order by both the university president and the campus police chief, contending it would violate the group's civil rights and subject him to liability.

The eyeball idea was too weird - the one that proposed a 2-foot-tall wooden eyeball hanging from the ceiling as a very spooky lamp. The compact disc storage cabinet looked good in wood - a 3-foot-tall cabinet made to look like a compact disc itself. But it needed work. The broom looked nifty. And wonderfully useless, except as startling art in a cathedral-ceilinged room - a broom with an attitude, the brush 7 feet wide, the handle 13 feet long. Each the work of students competing for a businessman's benediction.

They will start with Habitat for Humanity in Georgia this week and end in mid-July on the Lakota Indian Reservation in North Dakota.

Bud Batcher, director of Kutztown University's Small Business Development Center in Exton, has spent the last three decades either running a business or teaching others how to start one. "People can capitalize on the economic downturn by outsmarting their competitors with innovation and bold thinking," Batcher said. "They need to find some need or want that is underserved and then satisfy that need better than the competition. " That is his mantra these days as he goes about training hopeful entrepreneurs in starting or growing a successful business.

The skies turned black yesterday as the three young men in their Kutztown University graduation gowns and tasseled hats searched the crowd for their mentor and former middle school chess coach, Salome Thomas-El. Just as Earl Jenkins, Demetrius Carroll and Nathan Durant reached the suit-clad Thomas-El and, one by one, embraced him, the skies let loose. "It seems like it rains any time there's a big event," Jenkins said, as he, Carroll, Durant and Thomas-El scurried into a nearby university building, all dripping wet. "You know what my mother always said," Thomas-El told Jenkins.

ON THE FIRST episode of "The Haves and the Have Nots," Ty Lepley appears on the TV screen bare-chested and wearing a pair of pajama pants slung so low, they could give a gal whiplash. Jaw hanging, I asked myself, "Who is that guy?" Turns out he's a homeboy, a former Doylestown resident who moved out to Los Angeles just two years ago. He didn't go out there with the intention of becoming an actor. The 26-year-old Kutztown University grad was just looking for a change. Somewhere between hanging out at a gym in Santa Monica and last month's "Haves" premiere on the Oprah Winfrey Network, some smart soul spotted Lepley flexing those biceps of his and said he oughta be in pictures.

Two female students reported being raped in Kutztown University residence halls early Sunday morning, a university spokesman said. Although the two incidents happened about an hour apart, they were unrelated, Matt Santos said. In the Old Main building, the woman alleges being attacked by a male student she had signed in to the all-female dormitory section. The male has not been arrested, and campus police are investigating, Santos said yesterday. In the second case, a female student was attacked in a stairwell by an unidentified man whom she described as a somewhat unshaven, brown-haired white male of college age. No weapon was reported to have been involved, Santos said.

Amid a national debate about gun control sparked by a school shooting, Kutztown University's decision to permit guns on campus looks like a step in exactly the wrong direction. Kutztown last week became the only state-owned university in Pennsylvania to begin allowing those with carry permits to pack heat in "open areas" of the general campus - including the quad, walkways, and other places outside buildings. University president F. Javier Cevallos and other officials said the policy was changed because a blanket prohibition of weapons on the Berks County campus was legally unenforceable.

Kutztown University may not be the only state-owned college to begin allowing legally registered guns in "open areas" on campus. A blanket prohibition against firearms on campus is legally unenforceable, said lawyers for the Pennsylvania State System of Higher Education (PASSHE) in conjunction with the state's Office of General Counsel. The system has 14 universities, including Kutztown. All, including West Chester and Cheyney, were asked to make sure their policies complied with the law, according to Kutztown president F. Javier Cevallos, who sent a message to the campus community about the change in policy Thursday evening.

Kutztown University students have been honing their debate skills since the college's administration announced this week that it would allow licensed concealed weapons on campus. Students interviewed on campus Friday resembled a microcosm of the gun-control debate in this country - a majority opposed allowing guns on campus, while a handful adamantly supported it. "I think it's stupid," said Katey Merkel, 20. "I don't want to get shot. " "I don't see any need for people to carry guns on campus," said Ashley Groves, 19. "We're in Kutztown, not Philly.

KUTZTOWN University has dropped its blanket prohibition on guns and will now allow people with concealed weapons permits to carry them onto campus under certain conditions, officials said yesterday. The Berks County university's new policy says that a gun owner with a "compelling reason" related to personal safety may bring a weapon onto campus with permission from the university police chief. Weapons will still be banned from campus buildings and athletic events. Kutztown, one of 14 state-owned universities in Pennsylvania, made the change after lawyers concluded that an outright ban was legally unenforceable, according to Kenn Marshall, a spokesman for the State System of Higher Education.
