The university hired a certified arborist to advise on handling the trees, which must be uprooted to accommodate the upcoming demolitions of the Fine Arts building and the wings of the Oviatt Library, and on how they can best be replaced or restored.
Some of the "memorial trees" and accompanying plaques that surround the Fine Arts building will have to be removed because of its demolition. As the replacement structure is built, new trees will be planted and the plaques will be returned intact.
Around the wings of the library, plans call for the temporary relocation of a total of 11 large palm trees until they can be returned once the replacement wings are done. A nearby grove of stone pine trees also will be fenced off to protect them from construction traffic.
Associate Vice President for Student Affairs Fred Strache said it was the interest of freshman biology major Yolanda Kairouz that helped lead to a rechartering and induction ceremony for the organization on campus on Wednesday, May 7, involving more than 60 students.
Strache said the CSUN chapter of national organization, which accepts full-time freshmen with at least 3.5 grade point averages, had ceased to exist on campus in the late 1960s. Kairouz, who recently attended school in Beirut, Lebanon, was named the new chapter president.
Charles, a former reporter for the Long Beach Press Telegram, said she will remain as publisher of CSUN's student newspaper during the summer and probably will teach part-time in the CSUN journalism department in the fall.
"After four years, it was time for a change," she said.
The journalism department has placed ads in local papers to recruit a new publisher. Applicants will be evaluated by the department's personnel committee and a new publisher will be selected during the summer.
U.S. District Court Judge Jack B. Weinstein in Brooklyn, N.Y., last month ordered a retrial following a claim by Digital's attorney that the plaintiff's wrist injury was not work-related, but rather the result of a neck condition, a company spokesman said.
Last year, in what was called the largest known settlement in a RMI case, plaintiff Patricia Geressy convinced a jury that repetitive typing on a keyboard made by Digital caused her injury. The jury sided with Geressy, a secretary at the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey, and held Digital responsible for not warning keyboard users of the possible dangers.
