Towson State coach Gordy Combs could see the warning signs early last week. His Tigers were fresh off the season's high point -- a three-point victory at then-20th-ranked Hofstra -- but seemed too casual while preparing for Kutztown, a Division II school with a .500 record.Yesterday, in their inaugural meeting with the Pennsylvania school, the Tigers almost paid dearly for not showing the Golden Bears enough respect. Three times the Tigers lost leads, and Towson State faced the unlikely challenge of having to rally in the fourth quarter.

There are outdoor summer festivals and then there's the Kutztown Folk Festival. The annual event, held each year in the Pennsylvania town that bears its name, is larger than life in every which way. It attracts around 150,000 visitors each year. It's been going on for 62 years. It lasts nine days and spans two weekends. It boasts the largest quilt sale in the nation. In all, it covers a total of 29 acres including the parking lot. The event has also been named as a top summer entertainment pick by USA Today and called a "must see" festival by the Washington Post.

KUTZTOWN, Pa. -- As he flopped onto the training table and sighed, Chuck Roseberry looked very much like the oldest player in college football.The arthritis in his right shoulder was acting up again. Same with the torn tendon in his biceps. The pain in his tendinitis-riddled knees never goes away. And the "stinger" he suffered in practice a week earlier had left him with a throbbing pain in his neck. While ultrasound treatments brought relief to his shoulder, Roseberry was partially hidden by six bags of ice -- two on his upper back, two on his right shoulder, one on each knee.

The Fourth of July has passed, and there are no fireworks to get you through this week. But for many it will be a short week, so you're already ahead. Arts and culture fans can look forward to a weekend of Pennsylvania Dutch. If folk life crafts, entertainment and food interest you, then this weekend's 61st Annual Kutztown Folk Festival is sure to please. The plan: One of the best parts about this festival? It's going on now, so you could start Thursday, or even Wednesday if you wanted.

They love softball at Kutztown University. And they continue to be excited about the amazing pitching and hitting skills of lanky Kellie Evans (North County), who is on her way to career records at the school. The junior pitcher/first baseman is not only the ace of the pitching staff, but she leads the team in six hitting categories. In short, the 5-foot-11 Evans has taken the Kutztown, Pa., community by storm with her bat and right arm. She is Miss Everything for the Division II team (26-13)

KUTZTOWN, Pa. - This town midway between Reading and Allentown has about 5,000 residents, an annual Amish festival renowned for its apple butter and shoofly pie, a Main Street adorned with hex signs and gingerbread facades, a neighborhood park with a wooden band shell and a hardware store where the vending machine sells candy for 15 cents. Oh, yes, and one more thing: The local government will soon offer its own high-speed Internet service to every resident and business. And the price will likely be less than people in Maryland pay if they can even get broadband Internet service where they live.

KUTZTOWN, Pa. -- President Clinton brought his ambitious plans to offer tax cuts for education and job retraining to a sympathetic setting yesterday -- a small-town, working-class college campus.Addressing an enthusiastic crowd at Kutztown University, the president spent part of his 25-minute speech playing the role of professor. Competing in a global economy "that moves at lightning speed," Mr. Clinton said, has resulted in most Americans working longer hours for less money -- and with less job security.

HARRISBURG, Pa. - The Pennsylvania Dutch are holding on strong for a culture supposedly not long for this Earth. Nationwide, 369,000 people claim close ties to the culture, a U.S. Census Bureau survey shows. Local German experts aren't sure what to make of the number - believed to be a first-of-its-kind snapshot of the strength, at least in modern times, of the Pennsylvania Dutch. David Valuska, the director of the Pennsylvania German Heritage Center at Kutztown University, expected the number to be higher, considering that 100,000 emigrated here between 1693 and 1790.
