we have adequate scrubbers for coal, the problem is the anthropogenic global warming nuts insist we remove life giving, plant fertilizer CO2 from the emissions. And the US is like the Saudi Arabia of coal, and little known fact ... Illinois is very coal rich. Meredosia was going to do some new experimental CO2 sequester thing, which is insane. We need MORE Carbon Dioxide. But of course they…

That's ok. Medicaid will pay for patches, wellbutrin, Chantix, whatever the patient wants. Better yet, Medicaid will pay over and over and over again for the same recipient. Best of all, some of these Medicaid recipients will pick up the patches, free of course, then go to Customer Service and want a refund saying "I got the wrong strength. I don't have my receipt." How long do tax payers…

Does any other state in the Union issue FOID cards? At what cost to the state of Illinois is the issue of a FOID card? Since Rauner is trying to bring Illinois out of the 'red' - why doesn't someone suggest the elimination of the FOID card? How many of those arrested were in possession of a gun? How many of these same criminals carried a FOID card or a CC card or had the gun registered…

HLG President discusses making higher education more affordable

2 years, 2 months ago by Denise Donley

President adds student debt is high concern

College isn’t cheap, and some parents and students struggle to pay for higher education.

Dr. Anthony Allen, President of Hannibal LaGrange University said the university often discusses how the school is going to continue to provide the level of access of education to students when public education costs are increasing.

“As a private institution, we’re faced with the real critical issue of trying to educate students affordably, getting them the high quality education that they expect while not being able to enjoy all the benefits many of our state schools have in terms of public support.”

Allen added he is greatly concerned with student debt.

“While taking student loans and/or receiving grants to help fund your education I think is good, I also try to caution them to be careful about taking those student loans out,” said Allen. “Once you graduate and go into the workforce, you’re stuck with a significant amount of debt. I think we’re going to have to look at more creative ways of funding higher education.”

Schools and universities are underfunded, and Allen stated they are going to have to provide for the students themselves in ways.

“We’re going to have to work hard to provide scholarships to students. Every institution is going to have to think about providing endowments. Unfortunately, in years to come, there are going to be many schools that no longer exist because they can’t financially make that model work for them.”
