Re: “Oxford American shakeup hits NY Times

Mr. Smirnoff is extremely lucky that charges were not made against him (and others). Someone may step forward yet.

Understand about Marc but what is the story on Ms Fitzgerald?
She bit the bullet as well.

Re: “Scott Roussel resigns as UCA trustee

Mr. Roussel is a good man who cares deeply about UCA. It is to bad that this communication issue was blown out of proportion. Mr. Roussel misstakenly (apparently) thought that the appropriate time for the specific details to come forward would have been when the food vendor contract was formally presented to the entire board as it was in April of this year. At the August meeting, he was only noting the offer. He provide UCA with over 10 plus years of dedicated service and should be remember for that.

Re: “UPDATE: UCA Board raises tuition, president's pay

Perplexed you are basically on target, dr. thompson couldn't get along with the faculty; lu could live within the budget; dr. meadors couldn't connect with a couple of the trustees and tom is a great politician and will be more like lu but live within the budget and not break federal laws.

Re: “UAPB audit reports $736,000 unaccounted for

I don't think this type of thing (especially on this scale) happens often but it does happen and it shows the importances of a strong state audit (and in private business a strong audit by an external auditor). It will be interesting to see how the media covers this, "a missing $700,000+ versus the uca situation where the auxilary food service want to give the university $700,000. The food service company will probably end up getting the contract at uca and save the $700,000 (more profit for them), they were going to give the university.
