Toots and the Maytals, originally called simply The Maytals, are considered legends of ska and reggae music. Their sound is a unique, original combination of gospel, ska, soul, reggae and rock. The group released three best-selling albums, and enjoyed international hits with Funky Kingston in 1973 and Reggae Got Soul in 1976.

The band won the 2005 Grammy award for best reggae album True Love, an album consisting of re-recorded versions of their classics alongside popular and legendary musicians such as Bonnie Raitt, Willie Nelson, Eric Clapton, and Keith Richards, as well as popular artists such as No Doubt, Ben Harper, The Roots, and Shaggy.

Toots and the Maytals remains a relevant influence on today’s global music scene with artists from Amy Winehouse to Sublime re-recording classic tracks. Toots received another Grammy nomination for his 2008 release “Light Your Light”. In recent years Toots has toured with The Rolling Stones, Dave Matthews, Sheryl Crow and Los Lonely Boys.This show will be in celebration of their 50th anniversary with an acoustic tour.

Gov. Brian Schweitzer’s Plan to use Surplus Budget to Freeze Tuition

The Mind Of Lemm

This is a great idea. We have 450 million dollar surplus in our state. What better way to use the money than continue to make college somewhat affordable to attend.

I am a college student and it is expensive even for me. I am in instate student at the University of Montana, I got good grades in high school and I come from a low poverty family. It was nearly impossible for me to attend college and I was only able to go with the help of some scholarships. If college was any more expensive it would be un-feasible to attend. As is instate tuition is around $18,000 dollars. How expensive was it when you went to school? 3 or 4 grand maybe? Its absolutely ridiculous. Tuition is raising at an exponential rate and it is going to make it harder and harder for students to attend.

Spring Budgeting for Student Groups

Student group spring budgeting time is near. Recognized ASUM student groups may request money for their groups operating budget for use in 2011-2012. This is a great time to consider what your group will need money for through the time period of July 1, 2011 and June 30, 2012. Budgets usually include funding for printing, advertising, supplies, entertainment, and many other items.

This process begins early in the spring semester. A mandatory meeting to learn about the budgeting process will be held January 31, and February 1, in the UC 326 from 7 – 8:30 p.m. At least one person from your group must attend one of these meetings.  After applying the knowledge you gain from the meeting, your group will need to submit a budget proposal and outline stating the specific details about your budget to UC 105 by February 10, 2011.

It is always a good idea to plan on presenting your budget to the senate during formal lobbying. Please sign up for a time to lobby in UC 105 from February 16-18. Formal lobbying will begin February 22-25, in UC 326/327 from 5 – 10 p.m.

Each night after formal lobbying, there is also an informal lobbying period where groups are allowed to come and speak with individual Senators on a more personal level about what their funding concerns are.

When your student group needs money-Special Allocations to the rescue

Special Allocations can be applied for by recognized groups anytime during the semester, but any funds that are awarded must be spent as awarded during that semester.  Recommendations regarding Special Allocations are made by the ASUM Senate Budget and Finance Committee and are then voted on by the ASUM Senate which meets most Wednesday evenings at 6 p.m.  (ASUM Senate meeting schedule)  To submit a Special Allocation request, or if you have questions, please contact the ASUM Business Manager, Trent Hanson, at asumbusinesmgr@mso.umt.edu or call 243-2704.  When a Special Allocation is awarded, the funds are not transferred to the group’s account.  The expense is paid from an ASUM administrative account. Any other questions? Please contact ASUM at 243-2451.
