SGA - You*re not the FBI!
In a recent conversation with Dean
Scott, Associate Vice-President and
Dean of Student Development, I learned of
the SG A's investigation of his judicial
procedures. And just last week, I discovered
that certain SGA Senators are trying to
impeach SGA President John Miller. Is this
what Student Government is all about?
To me, the Student Government Asso
ciation is to represent the student body of
Gardner-Webb University. It seems lately
that those in authoritative positions of SGA
ztre representing no one but themselves and
are trying to accomplish what they want
This is truly preposterous. Does SGA
have nothing better to do than stir up contro
versy? What's sad is that those trying to
impeach Miller are led by one who lost the
election last year. If the student body felt
that their President-Elect could not do the
job, then don’t yc u think they would speak
out? If the evidence against Miller is true,
then allow the students to get involved.
Don’t try to work under the table. Keep the
student’s informed of what your intentions
As for the allegations against Scott, I
only have one comment about that. Dean
Scott cares more about his students than any
other person that I know of. I ask one simple
question: What do you wish to accomplish?
Investigation of Dean
Scott is waste of time
I recently learned of the Student
Government Association's desire to
replace Dean Scott as their advisor. What is
going on? Do they not realize that they are
nothing but a glorified club.
Dean Scott did not purposely ask to be
the advisor for the Student Government. It is
in his job description as Dean of Student De
I also learned that there are allegations
made by the Senate that Dean Scott shows
prejudice when punishing athletes as to other
students. Shouldn't he be? I am an athlete and
I am constantly reminded by my coach that
athletes represent Gardner-Webb University.
Dean Scott feels that athletes. Resident
Assistant's, Student Government officers and
clubs and organizations represent the campus
and these people should be held accountable
on a higher level.
If someone in any one of these positions
can't handle that; then they should quit. And
as far as the SGA is concerned, what ever hap
pened to the good ole days when SGA stood
for Student Government Association? Today,
it seems to mean Student Gone AWOL.
DID YOU KNOW...
Did You Know that a single cow pro
duces an estimated amount of 50 lbs.
of dung per day. At this rate, it is
estimated that cows produce nearly
186,000 lbs. per second. That factors
out to approximately 11,160 lbs per
minute; 669,600 lbs, per hour; and

GWU Opera Theatre
8:00 pm - Dover Theatre
The GWU Opera Theatre will present a
captivating, contemporary opera by Ron
Nelson, The Birthdav of the Infanta. The
touching story will appeal especially to
children of all ages with its 17th century
setting in Spain. It involves the story of an
“Infanta,” a child queen who is not allowed
to experience life as an ordinary child. Her
tutors therefore bring in an intriguing crea
ture from the forest known as the “Dwarf’
who immediately provides the Infanta
friendship and entertainment and a tempo
rary escape from the castle.
On November 16, all 5th grade students
from the Cleveland County, Shelby City, and
Kings Mountain School System will see the
Opera at Brown Auditorium as part of the
county arts program coordinated with the
Cleveland County Arts Council.
