The charge is a felony. Radford, 48, has been suspended from his duties as a coach and physical education instructor at the College. He is currently under medical care at an area hospital under an unsecured bond. Since coming to BC six years ago, Radford has been highly respected and admired. “This has been very devastating to the students, faculty and staff,” said Steve Martin, Vice President and Dean for Campus Life. “Everyone is stunned.” According to news reports. investigators have discovered that the alleged incident did not occur on the college campus, did not involve any BC students, faculty or staff, and did not have any connection with any Brevard College programs. Norm Witek has been assigned Radfoixl’s health class. Jerry Stone, a member of the board of trustees and owner and operator of Camp Rockbrook, will be working with the basketball team. Stone helped Radford last year and has extensive college basketball coaching experience. Recruiting for a new men’s basketball coach will begin soon. Last year, Radford coached the Tornados to a 14 - 15 season; the team made it to the Region X semi-finals, where they lost a hard-fought game to #1 ranked Anderson College. Rules defined for alcohol violations on campus by Robert Holland Clarion Staff Writer Many students have asked about the “new” rules that are now in effect here at Brevard College. According to Dean of Campus Life Steve Martin, there are not any that are “new,” just old ones that have been redefined. Because the rules were unclear, conflicts occurred last year between the campus life staff and the students, which caused some confusion. Most of the puzzlement occurred with policies concerning alcohol. The rules now clearly specify the following: 1. If numerous students are caught with alcohol in a room, ALL of the students in the room will be written up, regardless of whether they were drinking or not. 2. If a student’s roommate has alcohol in their room and is caught with it, BOTH roommates will be written up for possession. If this occurs while one roommate is out of town, and the roommate has no knowledge of the alcohol, the absent student will still be written up but no charge will be filed. 3. This year the North Carolina fireworks law was changed to make them legal to possess. At Brevard College, however, they are not permitted at all on the campus. 4. When a student is found guilty and is given service hours and/or fine, they are also given a deadline to complete the hours and pay the fine. Martin said that last year many students finished the year without ever completing their sanctions. The men and women who are in charge of creating the rules are the campus life staff, SGA, and a review board that meets in the Spring. So lar this year the number of violations has been very few. In the first thirty days there were no alcohol policies broken, according to the Office of Campus Life. (See Rules on Pg. 12)
