To die is hard if you’re not laughing

The role of English teacher is usually an unassuming one, most commonly associated with horrible books, symbolism and Shakespeare. Every once in a while, it’s impossible to judge a book by its cover (pun intended). Metro’s own Glenn Berggoetz not only teaches three classes a semester, but also moonlights as a successful screenplay writer. His newest feature length film, “To Die Is Hard” plays Wednesday, December 2 at Starz Film Center at the Tivoli. So to get to know the man behind this action film spoof, the Metropolitan sat down with the home-grown talent in the English department.

Connecting worlds

One hundred computers were donated during the past year to Uncommon Solutions and a grant will pay for the computers to 
make their way to Karbiri, the village where Metro professor Lucas Shamala grew up. This is the biggest project so far for the nonprofit.
