The meeting was called to order by Ed Bonza at 2 p.m. A quorum was present.

The open forum for questions from the audience for both candidates was called to order at 2:10 p.m. Questions were asked by Peterson, E. Croas, Paruta and Sinclair.

The Board moved into formal interviews at 2:30 p.m. The Board went to closed deliberations at 3:10 p.m. A motion was made to extend the search until January 16 2004 and allow the newspaper staff to appoint an acting editor (as detailed in the SMB bylaws) until the board can interview the new candidates the week of January 19. The motion passed.

Both candidates returned and were encouraged to continue their involvement with The Sentinel and consider reapplying for the editor in chief position. The meeting was adjourned.


At the time of this writing Eric Croas, features editor, has been selected to be acting editor of The Sentinel.
