because the '19' was hard-coded into computer hardware and software. Since there were only two spaces for the year, after '99,' the only logical

The relationship berween grandfather and grandson was ordinarily confined to holiday dinners and birthdays. For Dr. Bob Bohlken and his grandson Bobby Gumm, the family ties were carried through the doors of education.

Bohlken was a professor of communication

at

Northwest.

Gumm was a graphic design major at

the University.

With their busy schedules, the two rarely had time to get together. However, Gumm remembered the time he spent with his grandfather during his childhood. "He was great and taught me a lot," Gumm said. "He always took me fishing in the pond behind his house."

The connection berween them impacted Bohlken

by^sclyn Mauck Every morning, Channing and Louise Horner, both modern language teachers, loaded their bags and books onto the back of bicycles rather than in the back of a station wagon. The Homers opted to travel from their home at First and Walnut streets to their offices in Wells Hall via bicycle for several reasons. Besides cutting down on pollution and preserving the earth's natural resources, they simply did not want to use their car. "I do not like the idea of being dependent on automobiles," Channing said.

This independent attitude

may stem from

their college experience.

During the spring, yellow, purple, red and pink blossoms filled the planters and lined the sidewalks across campus. Looking around Northwest, people could not help but to notice the abundance of flowers. Tracy Davenport was one of the many students responsible for the

upkeep of the flowers. Davenport spent an average of 20 hours per week throughout the school year and 40 hours per week in the summer tending to the flowers. Her normal day consisted of watering, trimming, mulching, fertilizing and planting new flowers all while attending classes.

of the reasons they took promoting literacy seriously was the lessons the children

could learn from books.

"Once they begin to recognize the words and start reading that's a jumping-off point," said. "They can move to newspapers and magazines. The books give them lessons, stories, tales and history. The books that they have now are more educational than the books I had when I was little. Everyone can learn from reading." IRA also made working with kids an important factor. A lot of the children did not have someone to help them with reading. "They might not be reading at home," Jennifer Jensen said. "Hopefully when they work with us we can help them improve and get them interested also." Carrigan

Out with the old and in with the new was what the members of the group formerly known as Gay And Lesbian Tolerance At Northwest dreamed of achieving. The members no longer wanted the negative responses they had been receiving so changing their name from GALTAN to Common Ground was first on the agenda. "It was inevitable that name had to change," president Shane Foust said. "I could not lead a group with that

In order to gain support from the community, the group had would be both natural and conventional for the members.

community.

Some of the activities Common Ground participated in were World AIDS Day, National Coming Out Day and the Matthew Shephard Memorial. The primary function of the group was to educate and encourage its members so

they

could get their message of stopping hate crimes to the campus and community.

"We

are very all-

Responsibilities included helping out in many of the activities like the Homecoming parade, open forums, the blood drive, class meetings and the legislative forum.
