Southern Illinois University Museum Closes Amid Budget Crunch 

(Carbondale, IL)  —  Leaders at Southern Illinois University say the closing of the university’s museum is just temporary.  But the workers who helped close the doors at the museum last week think otherwise.  Museum curator Alison Erazmus says she fears the museum will never reopen.  SIU closed the museum Friday.  It’s the latest budget casualty at the school.
