ANOTHER THRESHER EXTRA (Updated Friday Dec. 1, 9:35 a.m.)

We printed a letter-sized extra Thursday afternoon and a one-page wrap around the regular issue Thursday. We also produced an additional four-page paper which will be distributed Friday afternoon and is available in PDF form here. This extra contains much of what was printed in both of those and represents our most complete coverage of the KTRU shutdown, news which broke after we'9d gone to press with the regular issue. We will continue following this story and have further details in the Dec. 8 issue, the last Thresher of the semester.

Click here for the Friday, Dec. 1, 2000 1 p.m. EXTRA edition on the KTRU shutdown. The regular online edition of the extra and the normal Dec. 1 issue will be available soon.

KTRU went off the air 8 a.m. this morning. Regular programming has been replaced by satellite content from the World Radio Network. The station is locked; the bumper stickers have been removed from the office door; and a sign on the door says, "No Admittance: Violations subject to Code of Student Conduct."
