Government meeting was held
in the fireside lounge last week,
to enhance the organization’s
visibility. “We had the meeting
there so we could show the
students we’re here and work­
ing,” Sam Crosby, ASG Presi­
dent said.
Reactions to the first open
meetihg of the year were mix­
ed. Rob Williams, a student
who attended the meeting said,
“I think the group (ASG) is
apathetic. I think the job Of stu­
dent government is entertain­
ment.” Another student said
that he was “Just listening to
the B.S.”
Starting the meeting were
speakers, Ralph Groener,
county commissioner and CCC
Board member, and Jan
Tomlin, a county clerk, who
asked ASG for help to pass out
campaign material on senior
centers funding to the local
community. Groener and
Tomlin’urged students to vote
‘yes’ on Senate Bill 955.
Groener said, “Local govern­
ment will coordinate help for
senior citizens if the bill is pass­
The ASG went on to deny
recognition of the Bahai Club.
The club’s constitution was
tabled for one week because it
didn’t list an advisor nor did it
acknowledge ASG as proper
campus authority.
ASG Business Manager
Steve Vohs said, “We should
not support the Bahai Club
because they will not recognize
ASG as proper campus
authority.” Steven Hall, a
member of the Bahai Club
said, “ASG’s accusations are
totally wrong. We admire the
government and will abide by
any law you put down.”
John Schaffer, Liaison of­
ficer for the senate suggested
the termination of two senators
for excessive unexcused
absences. Terminated were
