"Who gave you the authority to micro-manage the EDA," he ques- tioned, affirming that he sensed the president was threatening the press at the previous meeting. The issue involved President Pounds' initiative to work with the Miller Supply Company in Hays City for a potential property exchange. With that centrally-located plot of land in the EDA's hands, new busi- nesses and commercial developments could be attracted into the city. At the end of that previous meeting, Pounds requested that the press keep the name of the business "off the record." In last Thursday's meeting, news- paper publisher, Dave Corcoran, stated that everything spoken in pub- lic meetings is "on the record" as a general rule. but that he'd honored Mr. Pounds' request at the time be- cause the item was still pending. Cor- coran denied that he felt threatened by Mr. Pounds' request. Moreover, other members of the board defended the Pounds stance and requested that Mumma be more helpful to the EDA. Mr. Mumma reiterated, "This meet- ing comes under the Open Meeting Law and nobody can dictate to the press what to write or not write."

Emergency services were called immediately, and those present began giving assistance to one another. Bystanders cooperated by keeping the area clear while first aid was given until emergency services arrived. Many worked together to take care of the few who needed medical attention. Ellis continues, "It is by the grace of GOd that this unfortunate accident was not as tragic as many first believed. Many were shocked and frightened, but people kept their cool in helping each other." "We are very thankful that there were no life-threatening injuries. Our students are our greatest concern," said Nicole McDonald, Public Relations Coordinator for Glenville State Col- lege.
