Welcome back to the “blast from the past,” a feature showcasing articles from our archives. This piece, from September 29, 1976, introduces new security policies and changed hours for the Health Center. The rest, as they say, is history!

Two new policies, dealing with security and dormitory keys, are under consideration. The security policy has already been temporarily changed; there are currently two proposals for the new key policy. The following procedures will be followed at the security gate until further notice: 1) Security guards will be on duty at the gate from 5:30 Friday pm to 8:00 am Monday. 2) Between the hours or 5:30 pm and 11:00am Sunday through Thursday and 5:30 pm to midnight on Friday and Saturday, the attendant will a) pass through all cars bearing EC parking stickers, b) pass through all cars which one of the occupants is a member of the EC !"##$%&'()*%+),-".,)/01&2!*'&"%)"3)'-0)3*!'4)!5)3"1)*%()!*1)%"')#00'&%6)'-0)*7"/0)!1&'01&*4) '-0),0!$1&'()*''0%+*%').&88)10!"1+)&%)*)8"6)7""9)'-0)%*#0)"3)'-0)+1&/01):/01&20+)7()*%);<54)'-0) destination of the occupants, and the license plate no. of the car. 3) Between the hours of 11:00 pm and 8:00 am Sunday through Thursday and midnight through 8:00 am Friday and Saturday, the attendant will a) pass all cars bearing an EC =*19&%6) ,'&!901) "1) -*/&%6) *%) >?) #0#701) .-") =10,0%',) *) /*8&+) ;<4) 75) *3'01) 10!"1+&%6) '-0) driver’s name, destination, and license number, pass through all visitors who have been =1"=018()&+0%'&2!*'&"%)#0*%,)'-*')*)#0#701)"3)>?)-*,)'080=-"%0,)@ABCC).-0%)"=0%)"1)DEFG HHEE)*3'01)#&+%&6-')@)"1)/&,&'0+)'-0)6*'0)*%+)6&/0%)'-0&1)%*#0)"3)'-0)0A=0!'0+)/&,&'"14)!5)'-0) security attendant will pass no other cars, but will suggest the driver go to the nearest pay phone and contact the person they wish to visit and ask them to phone the gate for clearance. The two proposals for the key policy have been suggested because of the present recurrent lock system and the estimate made by the Physical Plant that some 500 keys are lost per yr.

When, on my way into campus after the conclusion of winter break, the tires on my old Volvo station wagon were assaulted by what felt like miniature walls, I immediately began cursing Eckerd College for its obvious attempt at ruining my car. I began making plans to come in the dead of night with my socket wrench and remove the new speed bumps. But then I remembered the many times I have walked down Avenue of States either late at night, early in the morning or even in broad daylight and almost gotten hit by a car ,#3:()97@$3,$5#(3B$G%&H$7(6B$'8((;C In my opinion, people drive way too fast along the roads on this campus, and, because we don’t have sidewalks leading everywhere, students and faculty are put in danger on a daily basis when they walk along the road.

As a result of the semester and summer vacation, we were facing eight months of separation. Let me tell you, a relationship can face no greater test than being apart for the better part of a year, even with the assistance of modern technology. Today it is easier than ever to keep in touch with people from a distance with instant messengers like Skype, Facebook Chat and even video chat on Facebook. Maintaining meaningful contact via phone or computer is a big part of maintaining your level of intimacy.

It is also helpful if you have something that is special to you from your lover, a picture for you in a frame, a gift with a special meaning for you or even just a card written to you.

Add to that the economic recession and other social issues that surround us every day and it leads to some heavy results.

The Susan G. Komen Founda! tion announced last week that they would reverse their decision to pull funding from Planned Parenthood. The decision to reinstate funding used for breast cancer examinations and initiatives comes after a contro! versial decision last week to end ties to the women's health center. Backlash from the decision was fu! eled by reports that the Komen for the Cure Foundation's decision was a result of increasing pressure from conservative political groups. In response to Komen's previous decision to cut funding, Planned Par! enthood released a statement saying “We are alarmed and saddened that the Susan G.
