letter from the editorDeadlines. They can be extremely motivating, or utterly devastating. Whether it is one or the other depends upon the individual and circumstance. Take for example, the enviable student who sets up deadlines before the actual given deadline. This student is eager to complete the assignment and begins working on it right away; giving him or her ample time to review it and submit polished work. Then there is the perpetual procrastinator, who for one reason or another, waits until the last possible moment to FRPSOHWHWKHDVVLJQPHQWGHVSLWHWKHDPSOHWLPHJLYHQWRQLVKWKHWDVN7KLVSHUVRQZLOODUJXHWKDWWKH\ZRUNwell under stress, or that they are simply so busy that they cannot afford the luxury of having assignments done in advance.
I remember when I was once that enviable student, always having my work done as soon as it was assigned. That is perhaps, the one of the few things that I miss about high school. Life was simpler then, I was focused solely on my schooling, unhampered by the restraints of work and relationships. Of course, school was also a lot less demanding then, and I was poorer and homeboundSomewhere between my sophomore and junior year, I transitioned from the industrious student to the procrastinating student. Even when my schedule permits me to press forward and get ahead of the game, somehow it just doesnt happen. If its not work, its a last minute assignment, or a quiz or exam, or in the words of Reba, sometimes life gets in the way.

4Former editor in chief of kanilehua shares her side of the story
Sarah Kekauoha | Staff Writer
Kanilehua is the art and literary magazine for both HCC and UH Hilo students. It is published yearly, although last years editions were supposed to be published one per semester. Ke Kalahea is investigating why Kanilehua publications last year were not printed. The news will be broken into two parts. Part One will detail Lea Gleasons version of what happened while Part Two will center around Campus Centers account.
The mission of the Board of Student Publications (BOSP) is to: Establish and publish all publications supported by student publication fees. When work was submitted and accepted for the Fall 2011 edition of Kanilehua, many students anticipated the publishing of their work. However, nothing was printed.
Students submitted and waited for the next edition, Spring 2012, but when WKDWGLGQWFRPHRXWDQGVWXGHQWVZHUHQRWLHGWKHLUZRUNZRXOGEHSULQWHGduring the summer, many were disappointed.
As it is highly competitive to get work accepted into the magazine and as student fees pay for the publishing of the book, students who gave up the ULJKWVWRWKHLUZRUNZLOOQGWKDWLWLVIUXVWUDWLQJDQGDOPRVWVFDU\WKDWWKHLUwork just disappeared. Or did it? Will there be a publishing and printing of the Fall 2011 and Spring 2012 editions of Kanilehua? What happened?
Lea Gleason, the editor in chief at the time these two editions were in the process of being made, worked diligently with Alan Ohara to create a unique Kanilehua magazine. After all the submissions were accepted, Gleason and Oharas version of the magazine wasnt print ready until February because many little complications crowded the way.
By the time the Fall issue was ready, Gleason decided to put a hold on it because Spring 2012 had already started to happen. Both editions were ready to go by the end of March 2012. Gleason wanted a different format, which was perfect binding, meaning instead of the magazine being bound with staples, the book had a square edge.
She submitted her query to a printing company on Oahu for one of
the magazines and received a quote at $32,000 for both issues. I was absolutely shocked, she said. I had no idea.
BOSP gave her a budget of $16,000, so Gleason found an online quote at $7,000. Gleason limited the selection process when she submitted WKHSULQWLQJVSHFLFVWR6XSHU4XRWH6XSHU4XRWHDOVRNQRZQDVCommercePoint, is a bidding process that the University uses to facilitate the most cost-effective price bid, and in this case, for a print job.

Things were settled and in a few days, Gleason received a phone call from Campus Center that the books would be printed. I was rejoicing, Gleason said. I felt like I did a really bad job and I wanted to redeem myself. I was worried about getting the magazine out for the people in it, not for myself. I felt like I owed them that service. Two days later she received an email notifying her that the printing had been halted, but was unclear on the reason why.
According to Gleason, she tried to contact Ellen Kusano, Director of Campus Center and Student Activities, and Bugado but no one returned her calls or emails. Now there was a new problem, said Gleason. One is that we want to get the magazine printed. But two is that were dealing with actual property.
