It is hard to imagine a neighborhood with a bigger target on it right now than West Mifflin Street.
The additional $25.5 million UW-Madison will have to cut over the next two years is already having a major impact on campus, and one of the most tangible ways in which students will feel the cuts is the elimination of 29 for-credit physical education classes after 2012. Everything from fencing to yoga to badminton will no longer be offered through the university. The very fact that so many classes are on the chopping block should be a red flag for students and faculty alike.
What is the ultimate purpose of the Associated Students of Madison? How does a UW-Madison student government benefit the student community? And more importantly, why should we care?

And the plot thickens. In the midst of a boiling recall frenzy breaching its halfway point, Gov. Scott Walker approved $3.67 million in federal, state and local grant money for the "Transportation to Jobs" program. Designed to get, as Walker puts it, "Wisconsinites back on their feet by helping them get back to work," the program improves local transit services for low-income workers by increasing their travel options, thus providing more accessible transportation to work.
We are a little bit worried about this recall, and we are not alone. All you hear across this campus and across this city is that maybe organizers will get enough signatures to initiate a recall election, but there is nobody who can take down Scott Walker. For all of his critics, Walker also has loyal fans with very deep pockets, and that is a major factor in a race where campaign finance regulations are thrown out the window. He may not be well liked, but Walker certainly is feared. Unfortunately, that fear may be powerful enough to derail this whole effort.
The Daily Cardinal Editorial Board recently met with ASM members to discuss their upcoming internal budget, especially the request for $100,000 to fund a series of internal training sessions-we were not impressed.
To say the University of Wisconsin System has reached its peak in the budget crisis is to repeat a recycled and ubiquitous headline currently echoing throughout the state. While the impressive elongation of Wisconsin’s funding drought has started to drown out the severity of any new budget cuts, this editorial board recognizes that the funding storm currently hovering over the UW System—and the causalities sure to result from it—deserve immediate attention.
In a town filled with first-time renters and an uncountable number and variety of landlords, we as students have come to expect a few things. Namely, we’ve grown to accept that those big companies—Madison Property Management, in particular— will look to exploit at every turn the naivete and ignorance of their tenants.
""While anti-Semitism has indeed been shunned by the civilized world, things are quite different in the Muslim/Arab world, because anti-Semitism is an integral part of their religion and culture.""
Amid a growing heroin and opiate problem in the city, Mayor Paul Soglin announced changes to the 2012 budget. Among the changes, he plans to reduce funding to the Overture Center to offset increased spending to deal with the burgeoning drug problem.
ASM has done it again. No, it hasn't made great strides in its mission of ""maintaining and improving the quality of education and student life on campus,"" rather it has extrapolated yet another trivial drama to yet another branch of student government. And this time the Student Services Finance Committee is in the hot seat.
Wisconsin Sen. Mary Lazich, R-New Berlin, is currently circulating a bill that would remove the requirements for schools that offer a sexual health education program to teach about topics such as contraception and body image. Instead, it promotes abstinence-only sexual education. We feel that this bill will be a disservice to the children in Wisconsin public schools.
Last Wednesday, the Associated Students of Madison announced the resignation of five representatives. ASM Rep. Tom Templeton said he believes the students resigned not because of problems with the student government but due to prior commitments. After interviewing one of the ASM representatives who resigned, it turns out Templeton was right. The student stepped down from his role because it was taking too much time away from his position on the Homecoming Committee. He said he is under the impression the other representative left their posts for similar reasons.
The Brothers Fitzgerald are at it again. This week, Assembly Speaker Jeff and Senate Majority Leader Scott called for a legislative inquiry into a ruling by the Wisconsin Government Accountability Board, or GAB. Specifically, the brothers want to reevaluate GAB's recent ruling, which states that students may use modified university ID cards at the polls as part of the new Voter ID law.
This summer, the Wisconsin state Senate passed legislation aimed at curbing local and municipal control over housing laws. Senate Bill 107, which was introduced by state Sen. Frank Lasee, R-De Pere, would prohibit local governments from enacting ordinances limiting a landlord's ability to show an apartment, search a prospective tenant's background or use that background information as the basis of rejection. The bill will be taken up by the state Assembly at some point in the current session.
