Courtesy photo WNMU Museum seeking Korean War memorabilia ~ By ABE VILLARREALIWNMU A successful exhibition fea- i ; turing local World War II veter- ans at the Western New Mexico University Museum has led to the upcoming temporary exhibition "Korean War Veterans: Remem- bering the Forgotten." , The exhibition will pay trib- " ute to citizens and families who , : courageously served the country , during the Korean War. It is ten- ~atively scheduled to run from >~ July 20, 2009 to October 31, 2009. Last summer, the WNMU Museum created a temporary ex- hibition dedicated to citizens of the Grant County area who served in World War II. Museum ' ~ staff members called upon fami- lies in the area to help with loan- ing memorabilia on a temporary basis. "In many cases, people who had memorabilia on display in their homes or in a box in the closet were not sure if items they had could help," said Phillip Cave. Acting Museum Services Manager. "Thanks to their gen- erosity they helped make that exhibition a success." The WNMU Museum is again asking the community for help with its new exhibition. The Museum needs items such as photographs, unit yearbooks. newspapers, military medals, and even uniforms to help aid in de- veloping the exhibition. The upcoming exhibit is funded by student fees from the Associated Students of WNMU. The WNMU Museum is open Monday through Friday from 9:00 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. and Saturday and Sunday .from 10:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. To contribute to the exhibit, contact Cave, Korean War Exhi- bition Co-Curator. at 575-538- 6386 or; or John Berry, WNMU Museum Graduate Assistant/Co-Curator at 575-538-6386 or berryj 1 @ Lordsburg Schools lunch, breakfast menu Monday, April 27 Asst.

The move was approved in order to compensate for decreases in State funding. The 4.61% increase is the smallest i-n several years. Full- time undergraduate students will notice a total increase of $79 that is composed of a $36 raise in the cost of tuition and a $43 raise in the cost of' fees starting this fall. With the new fees. the total cost to fUll-time undergraduates per semester will equate to" $1308.00. a 4.61% raise from the 2008-2009 academic year. De- spite the increase. WNMU still has one of the lowest tuitions in New Mexico and has one of the five lowest tuitions in the region. "We are increasing tuition just enough to cover the tuition credit," explained WNMU Presi- dent John Counts. Increases are scheduled at all four-year universities in New Mexico to help compensate the decrease in state appropriations to the university. WNMU has raised its tuition enough to make up for the state's "tuition credit" reduction. The New Mexico Higher Education Department calculates a funding formula it uses for a tuition revenue credit that it ap- plies to all the higher education institutions in the state. The $43.00 increase per se- mester reflects increases in fees for Student Technology, Early Childhood Programs. and the Student Health Department ' in several years WNMU has continued with efforts to manage costs in recent months, while also supporting its growth in academi~c programs. Two new master degrees, a Mas- ter of Occupational Therapy and a Master of Social Work, where recently approved by the state. Capital projects such as the upcoming extension of the Juan Chacon Building are also esti- mated to begin on schedule indi- cating that the financial situation at WNMU remains healthy enough to move forward with planned projects. Before accepting any changes to student fees. WNMU seeks input from all students on campus. The Associated Students of Western New Mexico Univer- sity (ASWNMU) held its annual open hearing on February 23. 2009 to hear from students and departments on what fees should be increased or eliminated. The ASWNMU Student Fees Commit- tee submitted its proposal to the Office of the President after a vote by the ASWNMU Senate on March 18. 2009. Tuition for non-resident un- dergraduate students remained unchanged at $5916.00 per se- mester. To not risk pricing WNMU out of the market, the current rate helps WNMU main- tain its competitiveness with other "universities in the region. WNMU offers financial aid packages ,and assistance to more than 80% of its student popula- tion. The Financial Aid office estimates that it will continue its trend of offering assistance to more than two-thirds of enrolled studelats. The Chronicle of Higher Education ranks WNMU's tu- ition and fees as the fifth lowest among 81 four-year public uni- versities in the region. The Board of Regents autho- rized the increase at its April 6, 2009 meeting. The next Board of Regents meeting is scheduled for May 14. 2009.
