Volume 10 Number 18 UTAH TECHNICAL COLLEGE AT PROVOOREM - P.O. Box 1609, Provo, Utah 84603 February 7, 1983 Parking Lot For Overflow Only Many students are unaware that parking on the dirt lots, west of the Business building, is strictly for overflow parking. In trying to accomodate the increased student enrollment, the lots were opened, but only to be used after all the primary parking stalls were filled to capacity. Each day, there are about 200 empty parking spaces on the upper levels and the perimeter road. Complaints have been brought to the Administration (who originate all parking plans) concerning the condition of the temporary parking area; mud, cars and trucks getting stuck, etc. In an effort to communicate necessary information to students,: ie. proper parking areas, the Campus Police will be on the roads this week directing student traffic to designated parking areas. They will hand out flyers which will explain why and where the different parking areas are located. Iv - Students have been complaining loudly about the parking lot conditions in the Northwest lot. Security Officers say this lot is only to be used as overflow, and that students should fill paved parking lots first. Photo by Steve Robinson. Some feel that the upper parking levels are too distant from the campus buildings-in actuality, all parking lots are within a few minutes of campus doors. Trying to build parking lots for 5,600 students and faculty, is no easy job at best. The Administration and the Campus Police are trying to improve parking conditions and to better serve students at UTC. Justice O'Connor Speaks On Judicial System - .ft l "-.;- Justice Sandra Day O'Connor In a rare speaking engagement, Justice Sandra Day O'Connor of the U.S. Supreme Court was in Provo, and expressed views on being the first woman Supreme Court Justice and spoke on legal matters. "It took 191 years to get a woman on the Supreme Court, and I think it's high time." she said. "I just hope it doesn't take another 191 years, to appoint another woman to the bench, because I want to be around when it's done," she added, while speaking to the Brigham Young University, and Provo audience recently. Commenting on her work load, the Justice said, "the Supreme Court must be the back bone of the paper industry. We have 5,000 briefs submitted to us each year." She added, "these aren't 'briefs' either, they are 'longs'." The Justice also explained that the Court systems in the United States are overloaded, and that there should be an alternative dispute system established. "The courts should be reserved for important matters. Neighbor problems, family quarrels and fence disputes could she easilv be solved outside the courts,' said. Justice O'Connor was warm and friendly with the audience and said she hasn't changed personally since becoming a Justice. "I still do my own shopping. I still put on pounds easily. My children and my husband don't give me any more credibility," she laughed. In other legal issues, she said that law schools need to improve the instruction process. She said she felt students in law need thorough information in preparing documents as well in presenting cases. "It would solve a lot of problems for the clients and the courts," she said. The Justice is an avid skier, saying she and her children often skied Snowbird and Alta. She gave the following advice to skiers and non skiers alike: "As you go through the mogules of life, make sure you bend your knees." She receives over 1200 speaking invitations per month, however, she says she only accepts five or six speaking engagements a year.
