A look at some early front pages hanging in my office as editor-in-chief.

A look at some early front pages hanging in my office as editor-in-chief. (Cassandra Negley)

One of my first nights in Phoenix I stopped by a local bar to see if I could meet some people. As luck would have it, I met two former newspaper writers. Both stressed to be a good sports writer I should have news experience.

Boy, do I.

The Stylus and Brockport Student Government (BSG) have never quite gotten along well. That’s what happens when, among many other issues, the newspaper is under the government’s wing and the government doesn’t like to have people digging in its business.

I’d like to expand on this page with explanations and background information. For now, here are the links to my work and coverage of the events.

Outside coverage: “BSG vs. The Stylus” 

“We would have printed that story had it been any other organization missing $5. I’m not accusing anyone of where that $5 is going. I’m saying that $5 is missing,” said Editor-in-chief of The Stylus Cassandra Negley while addressing members of Brockport Student Government (BSG). “I don’t care if it’s The Stylus, I don’t care if it’s Free the Children club, I don’t care if it’s Habitat for Humanity. I’m a journalist. I’m going to tell you where there is money missing and hopefully we can come to a resolution. Isn’t that why we’re here? Let’s talk about a resolution and how to fix this problem and not just keep attacking either side.”
