LANGHORNE What started as a journalistic exercise at Neshaminy High School may end in a courtroom. A law firm representing student newspaper editors has told school officials that the editors plan to resume their ban on printing the word redskin - and that any attempt to stop them would be unconstitutional. "The students will proceed in accordance with their published policy and, if disciplined for doing so, will take action to defend their rights," said the seven-page letter sent Friday by lawyers at Levine Sullivan Koch & Schulz.

After a year of irregular production and near-dormancy, the Burlington County College student newspaper has been resurrected. Although the paper does not have a faculty adviser, a full staff or even a name, the first issue of the academic year came out Nov. 7. That day, about 2:30 p.m., editor Rob Piekarski - a 23-year-old student from Pennsauken wearing an "American Dreamer" sweatshirt - stood in the paper's dinky office and prepared to...

Penn's student newspaper reported Friday that five Quakers men's basketball players were suspended for a game last week for failing random drug tests. After the 83-60 loss at Delaware on Dec. 21, coach Jerome Allen said the players - Miles Cartwright, Steve Rennard, Tony Hicks, Henry Brooks, and Darien Nelson-Henry - were suspended for violating team rules. The Daily Pennsylvanian, however, citing an anonymous source, said that the players were disciplined for failing drug tests.

The Temple News, Temple University's student newspaper, is plunging headfirst into the world of cyberspace, propelled by many of the same economic forces affecting the newspaper industry as a whole. When students return from spring break, the campus paper will be the campus virtual paper, available online Tuesday through Friday. The paper paper - the one with ink that can be read on the subway or used to swat flies - will appear only twice a week. By the end of the semester, the Temple News, circulation 10,000, will appear in print just once a week - although it should run slightly more than its usual eight pages, perhaps 16. "The cost of newsprint has put us well over budget," said Dawn Williams, Temple News editor, sitting in the typically trashy office of a student newspaper.

Dan Reimold, a journalism professor at St. Joseph's University who founded the influential blog College Media Matters, died unexpectedly this week. Hours after the school announced his death Friday, tributes to Reimold, 34, were growing on nearly every media-industry blog in the country - Poynter.org, Nieman Journalism Lab, MediaShift, the Associated Collegiate Press, and others. "He was undisputedly the foremost scholar on college media today," College Media Association president Rachele Kanigel said in an article.

Administrators at Villanova University confiscated all copies of the campus' newest student newspaper, the Conservative Column, last week, saying the paper had failed to meet university requirements that it have a faculty adviser. But its editor, Chris Lilik, 20, who proudly calls his biweekly "the conservative, Catholic, Howard Stern of campus political papers" - without the sleaze - said the action was the administration's attempt to shut him up. "All they're trying to do is censor us and tone us down," Lilik, a sophomore from Clarks Summit, Pa., said last week.

Neumann College's student newspaper is back in publication after student editors worked out a compromise agreement with administrators who had demanded to review the paper before publication. Student editors agreed Friday to develop a mission statement for the paper and form an advisory board composed of students and faculty but no administrators, said Anne Marie Ketchum, student editorial board member. In exchange, the school dropped its demand for prior review. The advisory board will not have the right to preview the newspaper, Ketchum said.

Council Rock High School's student newspaper, The Indianite, will hit the stands a little later than expected this month. Principal David Yates said he held the February issue of the paper from release for two days so he could be assured reporters had tried to contact people representing various viewpoints for stories involving the district's buyout of former Superintendent David Blatt. "There didn't seem to be the balance that I would like to have seen," Yates said. After talking with student editors, Yates said he became comfortable with the information printed because he knew the students had sufficiently tried to contact those representing the viewpoint of the district taxpayer association, but could not get a response from them.

The lawsuit cites an incident on March 11, 1993, when several students from the Black Student Union (BSU)

More than a month after a bitter censorship dispute arose over a column on flatulence, the Hatboro-Horsham Senior High School newspaper staff distributed a new edition yesterday.

The writers also defend teacher Robin Farr, who lost her position as the paper's adviser.

LAST WEEK IT was announced that Shonda Rhimes, the award-winning creator of "Grey's Anatomy" and "Scandal" is releasing a book called Year of Yes . Apparently Rhimes was inspired to write it after she was dared in December 2013 to say yes to unexpected invitations for one year. I've always thought saying yes too often is right up there with smiling too much, being too friendly and trying too hard. But sometime around New Year's Eve last year, I was similarly inspired.

The phrase Rape Haven was painted on the front of a Swarthmore College fraternity house this week, and college officials said they were investigating. The vandalism at Delta Upsilon was discovered Tuesday morning, less than two weeks after a member of the fraternity wrote an opinion piece for the student newspaper, the Phoenix, touting the house's positive contributions. In the aftermath of "deplorable behavior" at a University of Oklahoma fraternity in which members were caught chanting racial slurs in a video, Nathaniel Frum wrote, Swarthmore "can take pride" that Delta Upsilon "has set a model that should be followed.

THE REV. EDMUND Dobbin always said his first love was teaching. So it had to have been something of a relief when Dobbin left the presidency of Villanova University at the end of the 2005-06 academic year after 18 years. Sure, he said, he loved it, but being an administrator is a far cry from the hands-on experience of the classroom, the shaping of young minds, the interaction with students hanging on your every word - at least in theory. "Teaching was always my first love," he said on leaving the presidency and stepping into a classroom at the Main Line university he served for so long.

James "Jim" Moffatt, 80, of Riverton, N.J., a longtime Inquirer copy editor and much-beloved journalism professor at Rutgers University, died Sunday, Oct. 26, at Our Lady of Lourdes Medical Center, Camden. A close friend said he had battled diabetes and heart problems for many years. Mr. Moffatt retired in January 1997 after more than three decades as a copy editor and slot at The Inquirer, initially for news and later for business copy under a newsroom reorganization. The last to get the story in The Inquirer's editing lineup, the slot's job is to vet the work of other copy editors and make sure mistakes are corrected before the story is released for publication.

Brady Hoke, the head coach of Michigan's limping football team, called his job "a beast" before correcting himself. "It's not a beast. It's fun," he said during Monday afternoon's weekly news conference. The fun seems to be running out for the Wolverine's fourth-year coach, whose team will host Penn State on Saturday night. Hoke's job is in jeopardy after his team's 2-4 start. Rumors about his potential replacement - San Francisco 49ers head coach Jim Harbaugh - started last month.

A fund-raising campaign launched by students in California to support the Neshaminy High School student newspaper reached its goal of $2,400 in fewer than two days. The money, according to students from Foothill Technology High School in Ventura, will be used to cover the lost salary of Neshaminy's journalism adviser, Tara Huber, who was suspended for two days without pay this week, and to replenish the newspaper's student activities fund, which was recently docked $1,200. Both penalties, as well as the decision to strip Gillian McGoldrick, one of two editors in chief, of her title for a month, appear to relate to an unauthorized printing of the newspaper in June, in which the students removed an opinion article that contained the school's team mascot name Redskin , which they believe is discriminatory.

News travels fast. A day after word surfaced that the faculty adviser of Neshaminy High School's student newspaper was suspended for two days during a long-running dispute about use of the word Redskin , student journalists in California launched an online campaign to cover the salary she will lose on suspension. Their webpage, titled "Free the Playwickian," also seeks to raise the $1,200 the Neshaminy School District cut from the student newspaper's activity fund. Both actions, and the decision to strip the editor in chief of her title for a month, were apparent punishments for the newspaper's decision to reject for its June edition an op-ed piece containing Redskin . The fund-raising effort, unknown to Neshaminy students until they were told by The Inquirer, demonstrates how far the debate over the school's team nickname, which a number of American Indians find offensive, has resonated beyond the Bucks County school.

Sometimes kids know better than adults. Take the case of Neshaminy High School, where a group of student editors are schooling their elders on modern standards of tolerance as well as time-honored constitutional principles. The students found themselves in a standoff with the principal and eventually the school board over their decision to ban the term Redskins , which is used by Neshaminy High's sports teams, from the school newspaper. They had thereby joined a growing list of professional publications, including the Seattle Times and the Detroit News, that have done the same on the grounds that the word is offensive to American Indians.
