Because of financial losses of up to $150,000 this year, Ohio State's Lantern student newspaper will suspend its summer printing this year. The paper's editor says only "business concerns" contributed to the decision to shut down the summer paper, while critics say the move is short-sighted. "(The Lantern's financial situation) is a bigger problem than what summer (cuts) will deal with," says a communications professor.

Even more alarming, the paper's suspension will also have a widespread effect: Paper Trail will have one fewer paper to read as the school year comes to a close. Oh, no.
