Transcript Former staff members recall glory days We loved nothing more than causing great consternation for the chancellor, the president and the regents. In the early 1990s, a battle raged to eliminate the "system," and we at The Daily Cougar helped lead the charge.... Things got so hairy back then that there accusations that someone had tapped into my university email while I was the editor. There are also veiled threats from administrators about what would happen if we didn't back off. — Tanya Eiserer, Cougar news staff 1991 -1994 My true passion for working for the Daily Cougar was evident my last semester at UH. That semester I took nine credit hours through distance education because I started a full-time job at a newspaper 160 miles away from Houston. I moved into a new city and worked Tuesday through Saturday. I would drive to Houston Sunday mornings and spend the entire day at the Daily Cougar on Mondays so I could at least get one story in per week. — Miriam Garcia, Cougar news staff 1998-2001 I don't recall his name, but one morning during the spring of 1974 a doctoral student shot his professor, then turned the gun on himself. I was the only one on campus who got pictures of the victums..they were shown on the local TV, plus got picked up by the wire services. — Ed Lawrence, Cougar news staff, 1974-1975 I loved working for Student Publications! One thing I remember specifically was when they changed someone's job title from "Managing Editor" to "Barely Managing Editor".... Yikes! — Angie Gross, Cougar production/ composing staff, 1989-1992 So, it's 1967 and my first day at UH. I waltz into the Houstonian office, bold as brass and tell the editor, Linda Calloway, that I'd like her job someday. Why she hired such an arrogant little snit I'll never know, but for the next three years, yearbook deadlines were far dearer to me than boyfriends, booze and books. — Judy Beust Harrington, Houstonian Editor, 1970 Painfully shy, I showed up for my tryout and a gruff news editor, Gloria Smith, handed me a flyer for the Tutorial Project, told me to go to the UC and get a story. I was petrified to approach the total strangers at the Tutorial Project table, but was more scared of Gloria, who looked like she could chew the ass off an elephant if you didn't deliver copy on time. I meekly introduced myself to the Tutorial boys and as soon as they heard "Daily Cougar" they were pulling out a chair in welcome. It was the last shy moment I ever had. — Joan Duffy, Cougar news staff 1970-1973 I learned really quick that if you did not mind minimal pay, working long hours, a high turn over of staff, unexpected problems, critics, lack of sleep, living off of food from a vending machine and ever changing deadlines, then a career at a newspaper should be avoided. But more importantly, I got a true taste of what working at a free press is all about and what power a printed medium of newsprint has. — Shane Schiermeier, Cougar news and production staffs, 1994-1997 75 years of student-run journalism "y^'-jy-r" jkM °Jn 9h is fr*+*4Kfi Mm jmmMm.
