It appears student government leaders at Bowling Green State University could use a refresher course on freedom of the press.
Dislike of a story or headline does not give the government the right to censor the school newspaper, the BG News. And while student government leaders must win over voters at the polls, the position of newspaper editor should not be based on popularity.
Last month the Undergraduate Student Government introduced a resolution calling for election of the editor and intervention by the administration if the BG News continues "reflecting poorly on BGSU's core values and student organizations."
So much for universities being the refuge of free speech and independent thinking.

I would like express my gratitude to the soldiers of National Guard Armory Co. B for the outstanding open house on Sunday. My son went with me and was very excited to see all the soldiers and equipment. All the soldiers of Bravo Company were very friendly and took time to listen and answer all of his (and my) questions. The live demonstration was an excellent example of the highly skilled and professional soldiers that we have living and training right here in Bowling Green. The displays were also very interesting and informative. Not only did they show us the new weapons and equipment, but also demonstrated some of the new equipment and techniques.

To the Editor: Walbridge woman questions sainthood for previous popes
Written by Joann Schiavone

This pertains to local news articles about Pope Francis proclaiming John Paul II a saint. What were the miracles he performed? How can our Pope even begin to proclaim this Pope a saint with a history of deception, when he in fact was guilty of acting slowly to the crisis of sexual abusive priests, and the bishops who enabled those priests' action against innocent children? Scandal of major cover up of pedophilia behavior. Then that wasn't enough he put on more shame on our Catholic faith by giving Vatican sanctuary to Cardinal Bernard Francis Law, an enabler of child abuse who resigned in disgrace in 2002 as archbishop of Boston.
