SGA on recess until Fall '08, KSCL has new budget allocation [Update]

So, what's the number?

Our budget is essentially doubling, which is a step in the right direction. As I reported back in March, KSCL hasn't seen any growth in our student fee allocation. We've seen lots of growth elsewhere, but not-so-much in gold.

I believe all our hard work has paid off, and KSCL should see a share of 15.5%, up from 7.5%. This means that our yearly budget (from student fees) will grow to about $25,000, from $12,500. It's very good news, and we're all very excited about the change. It isn't enough for the future, but it's a step in the right direction. Things like this take time to change, so we're on the right path.

This means that summer broadcasting is go! Now we're catching up on our work. The end of the semester has hit us hard, and we've slacked on our academics. So, much coming for the summer, meanwhile we'll coast to the end! Thanks for all the kind words. This process has been difficult and couldn't have been achieved if no one cared.

Excellent. My 58 year-old husband can continue his education in indie music. I'm telling you the man listens to you or some little old timey country music station out of Ruston all the time.

Let's start a program like an SB Land Pairie Home Companion so we can grow more money for the station. I'm dying to do some good with my 20 or so years of commercial radio experience.

Thanks for all the kind words! We've achieved another step forward.

Kathryn,
kiddo, we gotta meet/sit down this summer. I've been wanting to interview you and Trudeau on the local blogosphere. Maybe sometime mid May? You're far too kind!
And I hope your husband listens to our country/folk shows (sat 10a-noon, & 11-noon wed,fri)

Sounds good. Where do I get a copy of that cool picture of you. Is it on your flickr account? I could use it as a Picture of the Day.

I'm guessing you're talking about this one.

go for it! I just hosted it, flickr was being annoying earlier.
