THE WEEKS EVENTS AT ATLAS-DOT-SLU-DOTEDU. JOHNSON: ANOTHER INITIATIVE THAT LAUNCHED LAST WEEK TO INCREASE CULTURAL UNDERSTANDING IN THE SLU COMMUNITY IS THE ³WE ARE ALL BILLIKENS´ CAMPAIGN, SPONSORED BY THE GREAT ISSUES COMMITTEE. G-I-C CHAIR STEVE DELLA CAMERA TOLD THE UNIVERSITY NEWS THAT CAMPAIGN IS NOT ONLY DESIGNED TO SUPPORT DIVERSITY AND ACCEPTANCE, BUT TO CREATE DIALOG ABOUT GREAT ISSUES.

JOHNSON: LAST WEEK¶S FIVE AND A HALF HOUR SGA MEETING HAD SEVERAL BILLS ON THE AGENDA, AND THE UNEWS¶ KELLY DUNN REPORTS THAT ONE OF THE MOST CONTESTED BILLS HAD TO DEAL WITH SLU¶S POLICY REGARDING SPEAKERS.THE PROPOSED LEGISLATION WAS TO ADDRESS THE SENATE¶S DISSATISFACTION WITH THE CURRENT DRAFT OF THE PROPOSED SPEAKER POLICY THE UNIVERSITY HAS CREATED. DUNN REPORTS THAT THE PROPOSED POLICY DIFFERED FROM THE PROPOSAL SUBMITTED BY THE SGA COMMITTEE, LEAVING OUT ASPECTS INCLUDING A TIMELINE FOR SUBMITTED SPEAKERS TO BE APPROVED OR DENIED, AN APPEALS PROCESS WHICH INCLUDES STUDENT VOTING MEMBERS AND A CLEARER DEFINITION

OF WHAT BEING A JESUIT UNIVERSITY MEANS FOR THE SPEAKER POLICY. THE RESOLUTION NEEDED 23 VOTES TO PASS, BUT ONLY ATTAINED 22. JOHNSON: AD-LIB FIRST WEATHER INTRO KOELLER: (FIRST WEATHER AD-LIB) JOHNSON: THANK S DAVID. THE ST. LOUIS METROPOLITAN POLICE ARE ADDING ANOTHER RESOURCE TO KEEP THE PUBLIC INFORMED ABOUT CRIMES AND HELP GET NEW LEADS FOR INVESTIGATIONS. THE SERVICE, CALLED NIXLE IS IN USE BY SEVERAL METRO JURISDICTIONS, AND WORKS BY E-MAILING AND TEXT MESSAGING RESIDENTS ABOUT CRIMES, TRAFFICE PROBLEMS, AND WEATHER ISSUES. THE FREE NETWORK ALLOWS SUBSCRIBERS TO CHOOSE ADDRESSES TO RECEIVE ELECTRONIC NOTIFICATIONS. THE COVERAGE RADIUS IS FROM ONE QUARTER MILE TO 25 MILES. ST. LOUIS POLICE HAVE IDENTIFIED FOUR CATEGORIES OF MESSAGES: ALERTS ABOUT URGENT SITUATIONS (SUCH AS ABDUCTIONS), ADVISORIES ABOUT CRIME TRENDS, COMMUNITY MESSAGES, AND TRAFFIC PROBLEMS. ANYONE CAN SUBSCRIBE ONLINE AT WWW.NIXLE.COM. REGISTRATION IS FREE, BUT SUBSCRIBERS MAY BE CHARGED STANDARD TEXT MESSAGING RATES BY THEIR CELL PHONE PROVIDERS. JOHNSON: THE MISSOURI HOUSE OF REPRESENTATIVES HAVE ENDORSED LEGISLATION THAT WOULD LOWER THE AGE FOR CARRYING A CONCEALED WEAPON. THE CURRENT LAW REQUIRES RESIDENTS TO BE AT LEAST 23 YEARS OLD, CLEAR A BACKGROUND CHECK AND PASS A FIREARMS TRAINING COURS, TO OBTAIN A CONCEAL-CARRY PERMIT. THE PROPOSED LEGISLATION WOULD LOWER THE AGE TO 21. THE LEGISLATION WILL NEED ANOTHER VOTE BEFORE MOVING TO THE MISSOURI SENATE. JOHNSON: MANY ST. LOUISIANS AND MANY AMERICANS BEGAN RECEIVING THEIR CENSUS FORMS IN THE MAIL LAST WEEK. HOWEVER, LOCAL RELIGIOUS AND GOVERNMENT LEADERS ARE CONCERNED THAT THERE MANY BE AN

UNDERCOUNT DUE TO POOR PLANNING. AT A ROUNDTABLE HOSTED BY THE URBAN LEAGUE OF METROPOLITAN ST. LOUIS, CRITICISM WAS HEARD ABOUT THE CENSUS BUREAUS HANDLING OF THE CENSUS. COMPLAINTS RANGED FROM THE CENSUS BUREAUS APPROACH THAT FORMS WILL WORK EQUALLY IN SUBURBS AS WELLS AS INNER CITIES AND THAT CENSUS WORKERS WERE GIVEN PREFERENCE IF THEY WERE U-S CITIZENS, EVEN IF THEY DO NOT SPEAK THE LANGUAGE OF PEOPLE THEY WILL ENCOUNTER ON FIELD COUNTING. LAST MONDAY, ST. LOUIS MAYOR FRANCIS SLAY SAID THE FAILURE OF ONE INDIVIDUAL TO SUBMIT A 2010 CENSUS FORM WOULD BE EQUAL TO $1,300 IN LOST FEDERAL AID EACH YEAR. AN UNDERCOUNT OF 1,000 PEOPLE WOULD MEAN THE LOSS OF AS MUCH AS $13 MILLION BETWEEN TODAY AND THE 2020 CENSUS. JOHNSON: PRIVATE COLLEGES AND UNIVERSITIES ACROSS THE STATE OF MISSOURI ARE CRYING FOUL ABOUT MISSOURI GOVENOR JAY NIXON'S PLAN TO ELIMINATE STATE FUNDED SCHOLARSHIPS FOR STUDENTS NOT ATTENDING A STATE SCHOOL, WHICH WILL AFFECT THE BRIGHT FLIGHT AND ACCESS MISSOURI GRANT PROGRAMS. THE ACCESS MISSOURI PROGRAM PROVIDED 48.5 MILLION DOLLARS TO STUDENTS AT PRIVATE INSTITUTIONS IN 2009, AND THE BRIGHT FLIGHT PROGRAM PROVIDED 3.6 MILLION DOLLARS TO STUDENTS AT PRIVATE INSTITUTIONS IN 2009. SCOTT HOLSTE, A SPOKESPERSON FOR GOVENOR NIXON TOLD KMOX RADIO THAT 52.3 MILLION, OR 48.2 PERCENT WENT TO STUDENTS AT PRIVATE COLLEGES AND UNIVERSITIES. IF THE FUNDING FOR PRIVATE STUDENTS WAS ENDED, THE STATE WOULD SAVE 52 MILLION DOLLARS A YEAR. IF THE PROGRAMS ARE ENDED FOR PRIVATE STUDENTS, MISSOURI WOULD BECOME THE FIRST STATE TO DO SO. JOHNSON: WHEN WE COME BACK, THE PRESIDENT PERSONALLY LOBBIES DEMOCRATS IN THE HOUSE TO PASS HEALTHCARE REFORM, AND THE LEGISLATION PASSES ON PARTY LINES LAST NIGHT, AND JIHAD JANE GOES TO

JOHNSON: THE EPISCOPAL CHURCH ON WEDNESDAY HAS GIVEN THE OKAY TO THE ORDINATION OF AN OPENLY GAY BISHOP IN LOS ANGELES. MARY GLASSPOOL IS THE FIRST OPENLY GAY BISHOP APPROVED SINCE 2003, WHEN AN OPENLY GAY MAN WAS ELECTED AS BISHOP IN NEW HAMPSHIRE.
