What is this?
Optical character recognition (OCR) is an automated process that converts a digital image containing numbers and letters into computer-readable numbers and letters. The search engine used on this web site searches OCR-generated text for the word or phrase you are looking for. Please note that OCR is not 100 percent accurate. If the original image is blurry, has extraneous marks, or contains ornate font styles or very small text, the OCR process will produce nonsense characters, extraneous spaces, and other errors, such as those you may see on this page. In addition, the OCR process cannot interpret images and may ignore them or render them as strings of nonsense characters. Despite these drawbacks, OCR remains a powerful tool for making newspaper pages accessible by searching.
decals and lots Parking by Laurel Cifala Intern Writer Parking has always been an issue at Carroll. Students have complained about the lack of park ing on campus for years now, and this year changes were made to help resolve some of these issues. Up until this year, a student could purchase a general parking permit from the Business Office for $50. This permit allowed the student to park in any unmarked space on campus. However, many students complained that permits were oversold and as ¿1 result, stu dents were out $50 and had nowhere to park their cars. “I could drive around for ten minutes and still not find a park ing space. I can’t tell you how many times I had to park on the street,” says communications and public relations major Tony Jones. The Student Life Office took this feedback into account and came up with a new plan for the 2005-2006 school year. They cre ated three parking lots, Lot A, Lot B, and an hourly-metered lot. Lot A consists of the parking lot behind Guad Hall, the lot behind St. Charles Hall, and the lot on the Getchell side of Trinity Hall. Lot B consists of the P.E. Center, the Library parking lot, the dirt lot behind St. Charles, spaces on the road running behind Simperman Hall and the lots located by the tel evision station and waterbarn. Students living on campus were given first preference for Lot A permits. These permits cost $150, but are closer to the buildings and only the number of spaces avail able would be the number of per mits sold. All students were given the opportunity to purchase Lot B permits. These permits cost $75, but there was no limit on the num ber of Lot B parking permits sold. The parking lot behind the Cube was changed to an hourly-metered parking lot. Students, employees and visitors without permits can park in this lot for $0.25 an hour. The increased funding from these permits will go towards maintaining the lots and possibly putting more spaces in in the future. These changes were met with mixed reactions across campus. “It may cost more for me to park on campus, but it’s nice to know that if I’m running late I’m going to have a spot at least remotely near the building my class is in,” says junior nursing major Erika change Phillips. “I might be guaranteed a spot, but that’s a lot of money just to park my car a couple times a week,” says Jones. Lot A parking outside Trinity Hall Laundry no longer free by Chris Mattix Intern Writer As another school year begins to gather momentum and Carroll College slowly begins to feel like home once again, we returning stu dents find ourselves surrounded by changes. While some of the changes seem like a good addition to Carroll, there are many that don’t warrant the same reaction. One of those changes is the new laundry policy. As most of you already know, laundry has gone from the very convenient FREE to one dollar per machine. This means it will cost you two dol lars to do one load of laundry, but that’s not even the worst part. The worst part is that I never have cash on me, and if I do I have to walk all the way to St. Charles to use the change machine which may not seem like a heavy burden but it is.. .trust me. There are a lot of speculations as to why Carroll decided to change the laundry service so drastically this year. Some people say that they did it to generate more income from the stu dents, and some say that there is no logical rea son. I asked the Director of Community Living, Luke Fortune, what the real reason was. Luke informed me that the reason for the drastic laundry service change was caused by the destruction of the machines in the residence halls in years past, and that off campus students were using the resident laundry machines instead of going to the laundromat. That was the best answer that I could get from the adminis tration, so that’s the one that’s going to stay. What it really boils down to is that laundry costs money now. If you don’t like it then you can go to any of the laundromats around town that charge you 75 cents to wash and 75 cents to dry, but for community hall residents that is always going to be more trouble than it’s worth. Maybe if students would respect things that did n’t belong to them, and off campus students would grow up and stop mooching off of the school then drastic changes like this wouldn’t have to happen.
