Out of the past 4/27/02 (04/27/02)
10 years ago: April 27, 1992 Full-time students will be paying more than $5,000 to live on campus and attend Southeast Missouri State University for 1992-93 academic year; that cost has climbed by more than $3,000 over past 10 years, university budget figures show; student leader K.C. Martin believes cost to students is too high...
correction 4/27/02 (04/27/02)
  • A $10,000 prize is being offered for a hole-in-one on hole No. 8 during the Cape Shrine Club golf tournament May 17 at the Bent Creek Golf Course at Jackson, Mo. The Southeast Missourian incorrectly reported Monday that the prize was a car. We regret the error...
  • Student participation in move a positive step (04/27/02)
    Central High School students are going to help head 'em up and move 'em out May 23 and 24, taking all the books, desks, chairs and anything else they can carry over to their new building. Relocating to a new school, plus closing another -- L.J. Schultz School -- and reconfiguring grades five through 12 is a mammoth task.

Where the school, still under construction, is sleek and modern, the road in front of it is bumpy and some say dangerous. Going south, a dip prevents drivers from seeing approaching cars on the narrow road...
    Parents need time to raise, mentor children (04/27/02)
    To the editor: I am a concerned parent with two boys in the Oak Ridge school system. Last week the district announced it was going to extend the school day an extra 30 minutes so that students who are not doing well can catch up. I am opposed to this for several reasons...
    Speak Out A 04/27/02 (04/27/02)
    Liberal drivel I WAS appalled by the column about cloaking jurors in secrecy in the Saturday Missourian. If anyone has ever been associated with a criminal trial, you will know that a defense attorney is not interested in obtaining justice. A defense attorney is interested in manipulating the system to the best benefit for him and his client. ...
    Speak Out A 04/29/02 (04/27/02)
    Accepting globalization THE FACT that the Southeast Missourian is running an article on globalization in 2002 shows how unwilling and unreceptive some people in Southeast Missouri can be to new cultures and ideas. The idea of globalization has been around for decades. Maybe Southeast Missouri is starting to accept this...
