Dan Akroyd remembers his friend Harold Ramis

Monday, 24 February 2014 13:58 Published in National News
LOS ANGELES (AP) - Actor Dan Aykroyd is mourning the passing of his friend Harold Ramis.
 
Ramis died of complications from an autoimmune inflammatory disease on Monday morning in his suburban Chicago home.
 
Aykroyd and Ramis knew each other for years. They both were alums of the famed Chicago comedy troupe, Second City. And they both starred in Ghostbusters with fellow Second City alum Bill Murray.
 
In a brief statement, Aykroyd calls Ramis his 'brilliant, gifted, funny, friend, co-writer/performer and teacher." He ends the statement with his hope that Ramis might "now get the answers he was always seeking."

SIU-Carbondale further restricts smoking on campus

Monday, 24 February 2014 13:51 Published in Local News
CARBONDALE, Ill. (AP) - Smokers at Southern Illinois University will only be able to light up in a handful of places on the Carbondale campus starting this summer.
 
Carbondale Chancellor Rita Cheng says that as of July 1 the campus will be effectively smoke-free. Only designated areas in campus parking lots are exceptions.
 
Cheng told the Southern Illinoisan that smoking already is banned within 15 feet of building entrances. The ban includes smoking in dormitories.
 
Cheng hopes the campus someday will be entirely smoke free.
 
Some smokers on campus aren't happy, though. Senior Jon Poynter says he understands people around a smoker may not like the smoke. But he believes the ban denies him his right to smoke.
 
Americans for Nonsmokers' Rights says more than 1,100 college campuses nationwide are smoke free.
