You would be hard-pressed to find a harder working group of students than the MBU Timeline Broadcast Team, who display their work in front of the student body every Thursday before Chapel, and last semester did the weekly broadcasts with only three members.

Democrats in the House plan to offer President Donald Trump $5 billion for border security, with hopes of reopening the federal government, but it will not include any new structures like the border wall Trump has made a cornerstone of any compromised budget proposal. Meanwhile, as the shutdown lingers on, entering its second month of the longest shutdown in history, we see families being affected by the furloughs. Today our student journalists are blogging on their thoughts about the historic government shutdown.

As the U.S. government shutdown enters its second month, compromise might finally be in sight, but for now parks like St. Louis’ Gateway Arch continue to be closed to tourists, negatively affecting the economy of the city and state.
As the federal government shutdown has now reached the one-month mark we are coming to see all too clearly that real lives are being affected by each new day of the stalemate. Paychecks are not being issued to more than 800,000 federal employees, leaving many to wonder how they are going to pay their mortgages, rent, car payments and utility bills. And the ripple effect is being felt across many related industries. Even though furloughed employees will eventually receive their back pay once the government reopens, it’s not much consolation in the here and now. Today our student journalists are blogging on their thoughts about the historic shutdown, the longest in U.S. history.
