City committee: Religious leaders must preach solidarity
By Paula Lavigne
The mayor’s Community Concili
ation Committee convened Tuesday
night after four months of debate in a
barrage of emotions and questions of
what is to come.
Though Tuesday marked the last
meeting of the conciliation commit
tee, it also marked the beginning of
the conciliation process, said com
mittee chairwoman Radious Guess.
Guess said it was up to the indi
vidual committee members — espe
cially the religious leaders — to take
the conciliation message back to the
Mayor Mike Johanns said he real

the committee did not reach its goal.
But the committee had brought people
to the table, he said, and had started
dialogue within the community.
The Rev. Andrew Rollins from
the Progressive Ministerial Alliance
said committee members had to be
honest with themselves before they
reached any type of solution.
“We’ve got to recognize that none
of us see the whole truth,” he said.
“The police recognize that they don’t

Rollins said reform was the key to
a solution, but the Rev. Andy Hird,
who attended the meeting as a com

said, it had to pay attention to it and
meet as human beings, not as mem

Other community members spoke
out at the final meeting and expressed
discontent with what they said the
group had failed to accomplish.
Cynthia Beliford approached the
microphone with her hands on her
“You guys are going nowhere,”
she said, choking back tears. “You
can’t discuss things from a middle
class standard. You have to get off
your butts and do something.”
Guess said the next step involved
a subcommittee of the Mayor’s
Multicultural Advisory Committee,
which would review the notes from
the conciliation meetings and write
up a report.
The report will be sent to mem
bers of the conciliation committee,
and final recommendations will be
sent to the mayor for implementa

operate or we will become obsolete,”
Smith also addressed re-engineer
ing teaching in the classroom. He
said he did not support increasing
faculty productivity because that
meant faculty members would have
to teach more classes.
“Instead, we have to increase the
learning environment,” he said.
Lecturing is not productive and is
an old way to teach, but that is how
most classes at NU are taught, he
“There are other ways to interact
with students,” he said.
