Well he certainly covered some ground unlike his partner. I would certainly love to commend both the Marshals and local authorities on well conducted communications in an expedited effort to capture Kelly despite him quickly heading south eastward.

It's a cascading problem. Starting in the late 70s, early 80s, hunting became less and less. Parents stopped teaching their kids about firearms and gun safety, and the world because more suburban. Now those kids are adults and the only thing they know about guns is what they get in movies. And so they teach their kids that guns are bad, and the problem worsens. It's not any one thing causing…

Well I'm certainly glad I've long since lost/misplaced my childhood super soakers and cap gun. I'd hate to think I could potentially be punished by law for having had those 'out in the yard'. Yet again, policy makers grasping for straws. What next? My metallic painted handcuffs that have a release switch on the side? Are they going to deem my having those as impersonating…

Wait... we're out of the recession? Why, because Obama says so? Comes as a surprise to most of us, I'm sure.

Because they also push those who don't qualify to sign up. You really think 58% of the kids come from families that can't afford lunches? I know people who take yearly family vacations and have a boat sitting in their driveway that are on free/reduced. If they truly "qualify" based on the guidelines, then there are problems with the guidelines. Also, just because the guidelines allow you…

HLG President discusses making higher education more affordable

1 year, 5 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.”
