Blogging for Bosley!

A few days ago I posted a "call for help" regarding Ocean County College Prof. Karen Bosley, whose contract as student newspaper adviser and journalism instructor will not be renewed once it expires in June.

Well, the AP picked up the story today and several groups are getting involved in protesting the college's decision. As a result, I suspect this is going to be a fairly large, ongoing issue that requires its own space. Hence, I give to you...drum roll, please...

BozWatch! -- a blog dedicated to getting OCC to reverse its decision and renew Prof. Bosley's contract. After 35 years of dedicated and wonderful service to her students, she should be the one who decides when it's time for her to step aside...not some thin-skinned college president afraid to be challenged.

So please join the fight for freedom of the press by joining me over at BozWatch!

Thanks!

As an OCC Alumni,a former OCC press pass holder, who also the subject matter of several articles and was a student of Ms. Bosley's, I certainly support this cause!!

This is a cause people should dedicate some time and energy to. Glad you showed the initial interest.

Thank you so much for dedicating your time and hard-work to helping the Editors of the 2005-2006 Viking News. Mrs. Bosley is obviously someone special that we will fight for the way she has fought for us. We sincerely appreciate all that you have done and hopefully we can meet someday. I invite you to please keep in contact with me via email for updates on our case. determined1@tmail.com. Once again, thank you!
