Good Neighbor U

News on the street is that Appalachian State University not only violated the Town of Boone's new tree ordinance, in cutting down two "historic" trees, but thumbed its nose at the town in the process. Told it would be in violation of the ordinance if it cut the trees, ASU went ahead and cut the trees, saying in effect, "So sue us."

It's the kind of thoughtful behavior we've come to expect from the new "corporate culture" of our home-town university.

It's just one brilliant public relations coup after another, eh Chancellor Peacock?
