“Again, I wish I didn’t have to write this. Maybe I’d hold my tongue if it weren’t for the fact that I’ve tried to get in contact with the CSU Public Safety Team more discreetly.

The greeting there said Dell Rae Moellenberg was out of the office, but to page the team if I were a reporter on deadline. I did that, but to no effect. Similar calls on the night of Jan. 31, when temperatures dropped below zero and students demanded updates via Facebook, also went unanswered.”
