Quotes

"This morning, at approximately 10 a.m., a Plainsman adviser noticed that newspaper racks were empty throughout the Student Center. With the print edition hitting racks each Thursday morning before 8 a.m., it was highly unusual the racks would be emptied in less than two hours. Upon further inspection of racks throughout the Student Center and interviews with distributors, it was discovered that more than 800 newspapers were taken from five racks in the Student Center. Since then, we have discovered newspapers missing from other buildings across campus. The theft was immediately reported to the Auburn Police Division, who has forwarded the report to Public Safety in order to review video and other evidence. While the print product is free to Auburn students, faculty, staff and the community, the product is not free from cost to The Plainsman. Production expenses each week include, but are not limited to, printing costs, delivery costs, special section inserts and staff salaries. Any theft of papers in an attempt to censor content will be followed up by any means necessary, including criminal prosecution, civil action for restitution of lost funds and campus disciplinary action. We value our First Amendment right to disseminate information to the public through our products, and we hope those responsible for infringing upon those rights will come forward and do the right thing."
"I think the defense is going to be a lot better and the offense will have more versatility with throwing the ball" Jim said. "We are going to have another good year."
"A big emphasis right now is we play our first game at 3 p.m." Malzahn said. "We've got to be able to handle the heat."
