LGBT center under consideration - News

LGBT center under consideration - News:
"Ideas for construction of a resource center for Eastern's Lesbian Gay Bisexual and Transgender community were discussed at Monday's Student Government-sponsored forum.

Though the prospect of an LGBT resource center is supported by members of Pride, as well as Student Government, the endeavor is expected to encounter some setbacks.

'There seems to be three things that are holding us up - space, funding and jurisdiction,' said Mark Olendzki, student vice president for student affairs. 'Money is key. If the center is to have full-time staff, we have to pay them.'"

I attended Eastern Illinois for my Middle Level teaching Endorsement. This would serve them well!

Chris Geidner: In Iowa, judges are ousted.

Via Chris Geidner's Poliglot blog at Metro Weekly:


In Iowa, which declared Iowa's marriage ban unconstitutional under the state's constitution in 2009, the National Organization for Marriage got one of its first electoral victories this year. The judicial retention elections appear to have resulted in the replacement of all three justices up for a vote this year.

Here, as of 3:35 a.m. and with 1767 out of 1774 precincts reporting, are the Iowa Secretary of State's election results:

Supreme Court Justice David L. Baker
Yes 443437 45.75%
No 525865 54.25%

Supreme Court Justice Michael J. Streit
Yes 442459 45.6%
No 527921 54.4%

Supreme Court Chief Justice Marsha Ternus
Yes 437118 44.99%
No 534486 55.01%

The court was unanimous in its 2009 ruling that Iowa's constitution required marriage equality."

Can we trust Rasmussen anymore?
