Limited Parking Raises Complaints
by Amy Sharpe
The lack of parking spaces has been a
problem at Gardner-Webb for many years. A
list of complaints stretches for miles. Com
muters arrive and drive around for five min
utes looking for a parking space, usually re
sulting in tardiness to class. So, most just find
a place in the grass, or on the side of the road
Residents also complain about the lack of
parking. HAPY and Stroup residents are force
to park in the grass beside of Royster because
the paved parking spaces beside Stroup are
"I'm ticked off," says HAPY resident,
Denise Greene. "Now, HAPY residents have
no parking. We have to park behind Royster,
in a dangerous, un-lit area."
On February 15, that parking space will
be restricted. Residents will only be allowed
to park in the middle area behind the stop sign.
Those parked on the sides will be towed at the

The residents of Myers and Spangler Halls
also complain about the lack of parking. Their
biggest complaint is during basketball season.
Fans park their cars in the parking lot beside of
Bost Gym and the library, leaving no spaces
available to residents.
This situation results in illegal parking
and quite a number of parking tickets. Tiffany
Stanton, a traffic controller for Safety and
Security, says that she writes approximately
seventy tickets each day she works. However,
the majority of those tickets are for improper
registration given to vehicles parked illegally
because they are unaware of the limited park
Dean Scott says, "...parking is at a pre
mium." He adds that there is ample parking
located behind the LYCC and beside of the
boiler room, but students would rather find a
parking space closer to class. Dean Scott
attributes part of the problem to who is allowed
to have a car on campus. "We have, not in the
past nor do I foresee in the future, restrictions
on who is allowed to have a vehicle on cam
The problems with parking have been
acknowledged by the Administration and
Safety and Security. There is a plan to allow
more space. However, there are no immediate
plans to create new parking.
Hopefully, that can be a project for the

Astronomers Gather at GW
Renewed Life to GW
by E.J. Dolce
Since the beginning of this semester, there
has been one celebration after another. Every
thing from January 19th’s Spring Convoca
tion which officially announced GW's’s uni
versity status to the opening of the School of
Divinity started the spring semester in grand
fashion. The season of spring itself inspires
thoughts of new life and renewal. In light of all
this, couldn’t it be expected that Spring Re
vival was on the way?
Months ago, a committee chaired Chad
Harvey, began planning and praying for the
week of Jan. 31st to Feb. 4th. “The purpose of
the revival was twofold.”, explained Chad,
“First we mtroduced Christ to non-Christians,
but secondly, we wanted to help Christians
evaluate their own lives against biblical stan
In his interview with The Pilot, Chad
confessed that although the revival was not a
success in “traditional terms” (lots of dedica
tions and fiery, well-known speakers), a lot of
positive things still came through.
Mr. Harvey commended the speakers for
their sincerity and forwardness. The revival
speakers were Brent Martin, Tom Witherspoon,
Nelson Searcey, Micheal Jordan, Jason
Carmack, Rodney Bradford, and Shane Mar
tin. “Preaching is one beggar showing another
beggar where to find bread.”, as Chad said.

Astronomers from around the region
gathered at Gardner-Webb on January 23rd
for a day of lectures, telescope and astropho-
tography demonstrations, and observing.
The event began with displays in the
Dover Campus Center.
The formal proceedings were kicked off
with a welcoming address by Dr. M. Christo
pher White, President of the University.
The program, which attracted almost
100 astronomers, included presentations on
the problems of light pollution in astronomy,
techniques for observing, and astrophotogra-
One of the highlights of the day was the
opportunity for the astronomers to visit the
Craven E. Williams Observatory.
The day-long event was sponsored by
Gardner-Webb's Williams Observatory and
the Cleveland County Astronomical Society.
When asked about the successful event,
Tom English, Director of the Williams Obser
vatory said, "the Williams Observatory solidi
fied its position as a growing resource for all
regional astronomy enthusiasts, from the seri
ous amateur to the science educator."
