  1. It will probably look pretty good in comparison when all the rest are in, unfortunately. Uh, who is paying for that studio for the sports broadcasts?

  2. As Steve Haner himself has said before “money is fungible”!!

    I am curious – when our local schools “increase” their costs – there is usually more than just a “percent” increase. There’s usually some line items and there usually for continuing costs – usually salaries for something.

    This year there’s one for SROs, for example (sheriff armed deputies). so we know pretty much what the reasons are for the increase.

    When Higher Ed does it… does Va Tech break it down into what the increased 2.9% is actually for?
