Residential hall locking procedure is modified H o p e ' s safety is the result of a watchful campus, which includes faculty, students, and staff, a talented c a m p u s security force, the Holland Police D e p a r t m e n t , and the inc r e a s e d use of t e c h n o l o g y , wherever appropriate. The security of residential facilities has always been the highest priority. T h e discussion and subsequent decisions concerning security are not new, but rather are part of an ongoing dialogue. T h e following actions are an outgrowth of these discussions: 1. M a k e c o m m o n s e n s e d e c i s i o n s , s u c h as l o c k i n g doors and windows when leaving our rooms. 2.Look at the physical environment and review the different safety protocols to m a k e sure that all d o o r s , lights, and locking procedures are in place and being used. 3. A s of M o n d a y , all the d o o r s o t h e r than the d e s i g nated main door of the residence halls will be locked 24h o u r s a day. S t u d e n t s w h o live in these communities can use their access card to enter at any time, through normal entrances.

Dean of Chapel search continues Mackenzie Smith SPOTLIGHT EDITOR

The Hope College community has been without a D e a n of the Chapel since the beginning of the semester. D u r i n g P a r e n t ' s W e e k end, Reverend Trygve Johnson was the first prospective replacement to visit H o p e ' s C a m p u s . J o h n s o n spoke at the Sunday night Gatheri n g s e r v i c e a n d at M o n d a y m o r n i n g ' s chapel. Johnson is currently living with his w i f e in Scotland where he is working on his T h e o l o g y Ph.D. at

the University of St. Andrews. Prior to that, Johnson, attended Western T h e o g i c a l S e m i n a r y in H o l l a n d , where he received his Masters of Divinity, and N o r t h w e s t e r n C o l lege, Iowa, where he received his bachelor's degree. J o h n s o n ' s p r o f e s s i o n a l experience includes work as N o r t h w e s t e m ' s chaplain, and as a pastoral intern at Third Reformed C h u r c h in Holland and as chaplain intern here at H o p e College. His interests include coaching basebal, w r i t i n g , s p e a k i n g , c y c l i n g , and

painting. J o h n s o n ' s extended visit and interview w a s the beginning of the end of the search for a dean.

New parking lot opens, more work to be done Anjey Dykhuis M A N A G I N G EDITOR

Students with cars at H o p e are a w a r e of one thing: parking can easily b e c o m e a hassle. T h r e e thousand students attend this college, and a good n u m b e r of them possess their o w n vehicles. H o p e has many parking lots, but s o m e of these are reserved f o r faculty, staff, and visitors. Students w h o leave their cars in these lots can expect tickets f r o m C a m p u s Safety. Parking in an unmarked spot will also result in a ticket. Ticket prices range upwards f r o m $15, which may not sound like much, but can seem like a fortune to students.

On Saturday, the improvement of o n e of H o p e ' s parking lots w a s completed. Sometimes referred to as the S e m c o lot, it is located between 12lh and 13a, streets, east of the tennis courts and the t w o D o w lots. W h i l e the paving and lighting were being completed, students were allowed to park overnight on 12^, 13* and 14* streets. N o w that the lot has been reopened, that concession f r o m Holland Police Department has ended, and all are expected to use Hope parking lots o n c e again. T h e reopening of the S e m c o lot. Lot S, will open up 141 parking spaces for students. This is slighdy more than

could park on the designated streets of the special allowance during the construction. Since the opening of Lot S last Sunday, it has not yet been filled to capacity. "This is a huge step in the right direction as far as dealing with the parking issue at H o p e College," said C h a d Wolters, sergeant f o r Public Safety. ' T h e r e are plans for additional parking as the c a m p u s expands and builds new facilities. This will help even more f o r parking around campus. (It's) an important issue that C a m p u s Safety is dealing with every day; it is important to (everyone)."

Wolters also points out that students can always park on the street and walk to their desdnation rather than getting frustrated trying to find a spot near the building they need to be at. " C a m p u s Safety is available to escorts f r o m lots anytime during the night," Wolters said. " T h e shuttle van runs from 6 p.m. to 2 a.m. and C a m p u s Safety officers are available after that." C a m p u s Safely is also working with the G r o u n d s Department to update signs in the current parking lots. This will begin next spring, or, if all goes well, this fall.

Letters to the Editor Guidelines

It would have been nice to be able to say lhat last week was Ihe first lime thai the Anchor has had to run a blank editorial page, but that would not be true. In the past, editors have chosen to keep the white space in the "Your Voice" section rather than fill it with ads, like I decided last week. W h e n 1 saw that I would be facing the same decision this week. I considered also leaving my column blank. I was angry at the c a m p u s for once again not partaking in dialogue. Although I am still angry that the student body does not feel the need to share with each other, it would be unfair to pin all of the blame on our readers. This year, the Anchor has a very young staff. Faced with a shortage of news on campus, we have been working very hard to put out a paper every week. I will be the first to admit that the paper is not perfect. 1 know that there are many areas that we need to improve in, and we are working on them and learning constantly. In the past few weeks, the stories featured in the Anchor obviously haven't been doing their j o b
