Editor's note for the usage watchdogs

Note for the usage watchdogs: The editor wishes to point out that he noticed (too late) the grammatical error he committed in the last issue - namely, a pronoun that should have been written in the subjective case - and that he's too embarrassed to tell exactly where it is.

Employee Assistance Program

If you're going through a personal crisis, consider contacting the Employee Assistance Program (EAP) for confidential, cost-free counselling. Phone 966-4300 to set up a consultation meeting with a professional. EAP, located at 1018 Education Building, accepts self-referrals from all campus employees.

Leaf Raker

It was good to see springtime grounds crews out last week. Much of the raking was being done by hand, but Parker Kelsie got to ride about on this mobile raker - a machine no home should be without!
