Parker The Voice On Thursday December 8, 2005, the Fayetteville State University Board of Trustees put their stamp of approval on the University’s Tuition and Fee Committee’s recommendations for a tuition increase and several fee increases to be effective the Fall semester of 2006. It all began the month of October 2005, as members of Fayetteville State University faculty, staff, and administration hosted a committee meeting in regards to an increase in tuition and fees. Student representatives were invited to attend the meeting; some including the Student Government Association President, Jerry Wilson, and AUTOS Commuter Student Organization President, Vertonica Powell. These students were prompted to ask questions and make suggestions pertaining to specific departments’ justifications for fee increases after only reading the justifications once during that meeting. Students commented that they felt uninformed and ignorant in retrospect to the time that they were given to completely understand the explanations for the many fee increases. The second meeting was held on Friday November 11, 2005. At this time a motion was set forth suggesting that the University Tuition and Fee Committee meet hereafter to eradicate any problems that may relate to time deficiency in the entire process. The following proposals were set forth by the University Tuition and Fee Committee. A proposal was made for Food Services at an increase of $200, One Card - $24, Education Technology - $35, Athletics - $100, Residence Life - $200-$400, and a tuition increase of $200. As a result of these proposals, the Student Government Association developed an ad-hoc committee solely to discuss the increases. In hopes of having a significant role in the “process” and a part in the deletion of concurrent problems in the areas of increase, this committee formulated a paralleling Student Recommendation for each increase. The Student proposal for Food Services was $0 with the current quality of Food Services, One Card - $15, Education Technology - $35, Athletics - $30 (the justification for the Athletics fee wasn’t completely introduced to SGA until the day of the Board meeting). Residence Life - $250, and a tuition increase of $200. Later on the Residence Life fee was reduced to match that of the Student recommendation.

Bom as Eric Bishop, and known for being raised by his grandparents, Foxx made a pact with his grandmother and himself, to never falter at a chance of becoming not only something in life, but someone. Neither of Foxx’s parents were around to help him like the average child, however, he did have the support of his grandparents. Foxx stated in an interview with Oprah Winfrey that his father’s absence made him angry, and made him want to be someone in life besides the boy who parents never wanted him.

It was the kind of pleasurable pain you experience when something is not only funny, but resounds w'ith a truth that you feel deep in your body and soul. Pryor, the unique, award-winning comedian, writer and actor, died on Dec. 10 at the age 65. After spending much of his career bounding around comedy stages, engaging in a high-energy synthesis of physical characterization, social commentary, deft wit and timing, Pryor spent his final years battling the debilitating ravages of multiple sclerosis. While some have eulogized Pryor as foul-mouthed and confrontational, others recognize him a pioneer and preacher of truth.
