The Associated Student Government approved The Bulletin’s request for a five-percent increase in funding for the 2011-2012 school year, requiring the fees for fulltime students to increase from $9.12 to $9.58 per student. For part-time students, the fee will rise from $1.29 to $1.35 per student.
Kelsey Ryan, editor-in-chief of The Bulletin, cited rising printing costs and a significant loss in national advertising revenue as the main causes for the funding increase.
The request was approved on March 17 in the Main Street of the Memorial Union during ASG’s line item hearing.

An article about printing appeared in The Bulletin which needs to be corrected. It is not the responsibility of the University Libraries to provide printing for the campus. The University Libraries subsidizes printing for students out of its materials budget. This is the budget which buys books and electronic databases for university use. There is no budget for printing nor do students pay any fee which covers printing in the University Libraries. As a result, we instituted charges last year for multiple copies and for more than 25 pages.
Because the University Libraries believes that research material needs to be made available to students as widely as possible, we have subsidized printing costs for many years. However, if there continue to be severe budget cuts, it will be impossible for this policy to continue. Paper and toner are very expensive. At this point, we intend to continue to subsidize printing. There are a couple of ways that students can help. One is to be careful to print only what they need and therefore not waste paper and toner. Another is to download relevant articles onto thumb drives or email the material to their email addresses.
With the help of the students, the University Libraries will be able to maintain free printing.

“The students’ voice since 1901.” That’s The Bulletin’s motto.
But with the help of administrators, it will soon be “The administration’s voice since 2009.”
For 108 years, this newspaper, the one you’re holding in your hands right now or reading online, has provided the students at Emporia State an outlet to express themselves and a medium for them to learn about their campus and the people on it. It has not, and will not, be a mouthpiece for the administration.
Sometimes what we write is positive. Sometimes it’s not. But something we strive for – above how it reflects on the school or administration – is providing accurate, relevant information to the student body.
From a journalist’s point of view, President Lane has been secretive and very much the opposite of his favorite word – transparent.
It’s hard for a student newspaper to tell all sides of a story when one of the key players repeatedly declines interviews and meetings (please note the blank pulled quote on page one). The only correspondence I’ve received from Lane is the letter at the top of this page. We’ve printed both letters so that you can decide how well you think Lane addresses the issues at hand. Let me also note, that before I submitted the above letter, I also wrote and hand-delivered a letter requesting to meet. It did not garner a response.
Lanes’ relationship with The Bulletin now mirrors that of his relationship to the entire student body. How can he run a university successfully if he doesn’t make himself available?
I urge you to leave your office on the second floor of Plumb Hall. Mingle with us. Sit in on our classes. Eat the cafeteria food. Paint some pottery in the union. Loosen up.
As always, I welcome any dialogue with the administration and students.
And President Lane, if you’re reading, since you’re reading, please contact me so we can move forward. I’ll be waiting.
