Board sets budget for academic year

first_imgSaint Mary’s Student Government Association (SGA) approved its revised budget Wednesday with a majority vote. The new budget presented to the Board had the same numbers as the previous budget, but student body president Rachael Chesley said the finance committee added a rationale, which helped clarify the decisions they made. “The finance committee was happy it was brought back to review so they could come up with a rationale and really be able to solidify why decisions were made in the first place,” Chesley said. Two concerns voiced in last week’s meeting were about the amount of money allotted to class boards and where the Capital Fund, money allotted for general campus improvements, would go. Class boards had asked for additional funds to pay for events such as parents’ weekends, but Griffin said that would be out of the realm of possibility. “We felt like we weren’t sure where we were taking money from to give class boards,” Griffin said. “The only way we could possibly make a difference would have to give you tens of thousands of more dollars.” Griffin also explained the need for the Capital Fund to help make improvements around campus, including renovating the student government offices and putting funds into Dalloway’s, the campus clubhouse. “Money from the Capital Fund would come into play,” Chesley said. “It is the leverage we need to fix things on campus.” Money that could be used for an updated version of the Notre Dame co-exchange program was added to the budget. The program, which was cut at the beginning of the academic year, allowed 75 Saint Mary’s students per day to have a meal at Notre Dame’s dining halls at no additional cost. Students have expressed concern over the cancellation of the program, which is now only available to students who need the tickets because they have classes or commitments at Notre Dame during meal times. Chesley said the addition of a budget for a new “social” co-exchange program doesn’t guarantee a new program will be formed, but will allow the Board funds to move forward on the issue. “I think we could do it and this is going to give us the financial leverage we need to even consider the different options for co-exs,” Chesley said. Chesley said she and student body vice president Laura Smith have continued to work on the issue, and are working on exhausting their options. “The goal that we’re looking toward is getting some form of social co-ex tickets back to students, free of charge to students,” Chesley said. After discussions closed, the budget was put to a vote and was passed by majority vote, meaning the Board can now start giving funds to campus boards, clubs and organizations. “We now have a budget. We can move forward with the year,” Chesley said.last_img read more

Australia collapse gives SA the edge ..Dale Steyn ruled out of the series

first_img(REUTERS)-South Africa’s bowlers rallied magnificently after the loss of pace spearhead Dale Steyn before their batsmen pushed to an 102-run lead at the close on day two of the first Test against Australia yesterday.Steyn left the field with a shoulder injury before lunch and was later ruled out of the series with a stress fracture in a hammer blow for the touring side.But the remaining Proteas bowlers ripped out the hosts for 244 before tea before Dean Elgar (46 not out) and JP Duminy (36 not out) combined for an unbroken 59-run stand to steady the innings after two early wickets in the final session.South Africa were 104 for two at stumps having fought back strongly after Australia had dominated the first day.Vernon Philander took 4-56, teaming up brilliantly with debutant left-arm spinner Keshav Maharaj (3-56) as Australia lost 10 wickets for 84 runs after resuming in the morning at 105 without loss.“A few of us probably have to look at ourselves in the mirror and say why did we play those shots?,” opening batsman David Warner said of a collapse that included four ducks.Rising pace talent Kagiso Rabada took three wickets, with Steyn grabbing the first of the day to deny Warner a century.The Australian vice -captain and opener Shaun Marsh pushed Australia to 158 before Steyn had Warner caught in the slips for 97.Steyn exited in his following over but it did little to break the Proteas’ focus, with Rabada bowling Usman Khawaja for four and Maharaj grabbing a memorable first wicket, trapping Steven Smith lbw for a duck as the captain skipped down the wicket.Marsh was given out lbw in the final over before lunch and the rot continued after the break.Bowling a tight line and length, Philander and Maharaj ratcheted up the pressure with three straight maidens before Mitchell Marsh succumbed for an eight-ball duck.Adam Voges showed some resistance but Rabada caught a leading edge off his own bowling to dismiss him for 27.Mitchell Starc lasted only six balls before holing out for a duck off Maharaj, driving to South Africa captain Faf du Plessis at midwicket.Wicketkeeper Peter Nevill managed 23 before Josh Hazlewood (4) and Nathan Lyon, the fourth duck of the innings, fell quickly to wrap up the Australian innings.Shaun Marsh took a sharp catch at midwicket to dismiss Stephen Cook for 12 off paceman Peter Siddle and Josh Hazlewood bowled Hashim Amla for one, having dismissed him for a duck in the first innings.But Elgar and Duminy stood firm in the last hour to complete a fine day for South Africa and give the tourists hope of setting a big target on day three.DSOUTH AFRICA 1st innings 242 (Q. de Kock 84, T.
