For all of President Obama’s talk Tuesday night of boosting US energy production, he has a huge problem: The American left — a vital part of his political base — seems determined to force us down the opposite path. Indeed, the “Big Green Extreme” fights energy even when it means harming the environment. Read More

However, revisions had to be made last week, said Linda Granja, UTB’s financial analysis manager. The UT System had set a 2.6 percent limit on increases to designated tuition, but officials made an error in their calculations by using 2.67 percent. Read More
