Opinion

O u r voice

Your voice

The Anchor is always open lo honesl criticism, and lellers to the editor are something to which we pay a good deal of attention. However, the Anchor is also in the position of being a publication devoted to presenting the news and opinions of Hope College in the most fair and journalistic manner possible. Unfortunately, some people fail to recognize the position of the Anchor on this campus, and accuse us of being aligned "against them." The Anchor has been criticized multiple times for dealing with the issue of the red light signs that student congress c h o s e lo install. What the critics fail to mention is that the Anchor was merely responding to a number of students w h o felt that the signs were a waste of money, primarily because they were not operational at the time. It is not the Anchor that is critical of the installment of the s i g n s â&#x20AC;&#x201D; w e are trying to accurately r e l i e d the views of a portion of the student body. T h e Anchor is the publication of the students, and we strive to present a publication that speaks to and from a very diverse student body. To claim that the Anchor is biting the hand that feeds it by attacking Student Congress seems to be a misplaced sentiment. The Anchor is responding to the true hand that funds its publicationâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;the student body. Student Congress doesn't provide the money, it administrates the students' money. When students disagree with something that Student Congress does, they have the full right to make their views known. T h e Anchor's coverage of the leaving of Ben Patterson has been criticized from a n u m b e r of people, even to the point of accusations of demonizing Patterson. T h e A n c h o r worked hard to create a fair and evenhanded review of Ben Patterson's time at Hope College. And it w a s an article that represented the feelings of two very separate sides of the campus. Half the campus feels that a single word suggesting that the chaplain's stuff was a part of any of the controversies is heretical. The other half of the c a m p u s feels that the chaplain's staff sets the tone for the religious life on campus, and that is a tone that has had both its ups and downs over the past years. In the t w o articles in the paper, w e presented the facts of Ben Patterson's time at Hope College, as well as quotes f r o m Patterson and others about his time at Hope. Some people w h o were upset with the article say that it did not present certain things that Patterson has accomplished during his time at Hope, for instance a "spiritual growth" on campus that has occurred during his appointment. Unfortunately, spiritual growth cannot be measured in a manner that makes for good journalism. How can a newspaper verify that people have moved closer to G o d , in a way that goes beyond their personal testimony? Ben Patterson did a lot for many individuals, but those things are not the subject of solid journalism. W h a t the Anchor could include was a factual relation of Patterson's time at Hope, and how Patterson and certain individuals from different perspectives felt about it. The student body of Hope College already has a publication that is filled with feel-good, controversy-avoiding articles: it is called News From Hope College. Fortunately, the Anchor is a publication at Hope College that relates the news of campus: the good, the bad, the inspirational, and the disgusting. W e ' r e here to talk the tough talk, and relate the ways that things are on campus, and sometimes we get criticized for that role. But week after week w e take it. and are willing to continue to serve the entire campus c o m m u n i t y to the best of our ability.

To the Editor, I am a member of the Student Congress appropriations committee and I would like to comment on the recent ad-hoc request the Anchor made for a n e w newspaper-sized printer. Apparently the old printer w a s in rapid decline and took 45 minutes to print one page. While the request had its faults in that it w a s n ' t a capital request (a request made for large purchases during spring budgeting), its biggest fault was making

so many controversial statements (in recent articles) about student congress. For example, an article tilled " N e w signs don't work yet" appeared in the 11/8 issue. Ironically, the article became a waste of space since the signs were up and running the same day. Nonetheless, the Anchor felt it could take this opportunity to make a knee-jerk reaction article on the purchase of the signs. With that said, it is generally a bad idea to bile the Student Congress that feeds you. Thanks to this, some of the appropriation m e m b e r s

had a tough time trying lo approve this ad-hoc request. I for o n e will approve the request because I bel i e v e m o s t of the s t u d e n t b o d y would want this, but I hope that the Anchor would take into consideration a change in their attitude toward not just the student congress, but all organizations. However, if your goal at the A n c h o r is lo be laughed at f o r your tunnel vision opinions and lack of professional journalism, then you are suceeding. Stephen Adair II ( ' 0 4 )

Student feels Patterson article unfairly biased To the Editor, After reading the Spotlight article entitled "Leaving the Gathering" (Nov. 29), I felt I needed to respond to the one-sided telling of the story of Ben Patterson's chaplaincy at Hope. T h e article, in my opinion, concentrated far loo heavily on the controversies that necessarily befall a c o m m u nity trying to live out its faith, overlooked all the amazing accomplishments of the last six and a half years. Rather than celebrate these achievements, what I saw on page six of the past issue of the A n c h o r w a s an u n a s h a m e d attempt to vilify Ben. to portray his ministry in the worst possible light, and to say lo him "good riddance:" as he leaves us. Disagreement on certain issues since his arrival have excited passions (on both sides. I admit) and we rarely

slop to think what a miracle took place that the chapel program was literally brought back to life under Ben's guidance. Sure, the article accurately reported the rise in chapel attendance during Ben's tenure, but it failed lo report the remarkable spiritual growth that has a c c o m p a nied, and really surpasses in importance. this rise in attendance. How many people have been challenged lo a deeper relationship with Jesus Christ in the past few years because of the chapel p r o g r a m ? I know of at least one. How many people have fell the call to ministry w h i l e at H o p e ? I know of at least one. T h e way Ben talked about the beautiful heritage of Hope College as a training ground f o r future ministers and missionaries w a s nothing short of inspirational. If w e have failed lo see what a powerful vision Ben had f o r the kingdom of G o d , we ought to be ashamed. Our theological dif-

ferences pale in comparison to the c o m p e l l i n g call we as Christians have to live out the Gospel in all that we do. And the chapel program of the last few years has. I believe, challenged us all with this call. Let's be honest with ourselves. We would have disagreed about issues of homosexuality and pluralism whether Ben had been here or not. H e and Dolores and Paul are not responsible for these controversies. T h e seeds were sown long before they arrived. So I urge all of those w h o w o u l d d e m o n i z e Ben Patterson to set aside for a moment their own personal opinion, and say thank you for the work he has done. Two things that are indisputable are that Ben loves Jesus and Ben loves us. C a n ' t w e learn f r o m that no matter what side of the controversies we fall o n ? Michael Brinks (*00)

Queer Campus 2000 makes visible statement To the Editor, This morning some of you may have awoke to see flyers posted all over c a m p u s with the phrase, " W e ' r e here! W e ' r e queer! Gel used to it!" on them. These flyers have been put up as a means lo create awareness among the Hope College community. These posters are in no way associated with

G.L.O.B.E.. Although our group supports G.L.O.B.E. In every way. we ourselves are not m e m b e r s of their organization, and do not wish to see G.L.O.B.E. held responsible. Our group feels that it is important to understand that diversity d o e s exist at Hope College. As a society we should strive to understand all that our world holds for us. We will not go back lo hiding who we are.

For too long w e have lived in fear. But we will fear no longer. All we ask is that you love us and that you treat us with respect. Although you may not agree with us or our position, w e ask that you strive lo understand us.

O d d smells near library concern student To the Editor, After reading J a n e Bast's article last week, I was inspired to (in her words) "find the root of the problem and take the steps to c h a n g e it." I was wondering if anyone knows what is causing the area o u t si d e of the Van Wylen Library lo slink so much. (Anyo n e w h o w a l k s by this part of

c a m p u s knows what I am talking about). Every time I have passed by the area between Peale and the library in ihe past couple months, I gag. Is it m a n u r e ? If so, why are they fertilizing the area during the w i n t e r ? Is it a p r o b l e m with the sewer lines around that city block? Perhaps the offensive smell is the slinky progeny of male and f e m a l e trees? Did a small animal die in the

bushes? I would really like to know the c a u s e of this. W h a t ' s more, I would really like lo see something be done about it. T h e smell is deterring me f r o m going lo return my library books. T h e y are a month overdue. S o m e o n e please help.

DID / HEAR A NINER IN THERE?-. B'S" Hope forward Josh Bauman ('03) warms up before the Hope/University of Chicago game last Saturday. Hope lost to the number five ranked Maroons 80-76. The Flying Dutchmen struggled from both the free-throw line and on 3-pointers. Hope shot a cold 5-11 from the line in the second half and an even colder 1-9 on 3 , s. The sole 3 came from guard Chad Zagar ('01) with only five seconds remaining in the game.
