A Wal-Mart representative, who wished to remain anonymous, said, "Students began parking up against the curbs in the parking lot causing a safety hazard." Wal-Mart's representative said this is very important because it, "prevented two-way traffic on the parking lot road and made it so only one car could get by." There may be some debate regarding UVSC's role in the entire parking affair.

Bv J o d i Dreher S t a k f Reporter A large-scale service project at UVSC called Operation GIVE (Giving International Values Educationally) has raised almost $200,000 worth of books and supplies to benefit Tongan students who have a shortage of basic educational supplies. The project's goal is to raise over $500,000 in books and supplies as well as $15,000 in cash donations. Dave Nabrotzky, chairman of the project, said that "sometimes there is only one book for 30 kids in Tonga." The schools are located in Eua, Tonga, which is near the coast of Australia.

Nabrotzky also described two meanings to contribute to OperationGIVE: a superficial meaning and a deeper meaning. The superficial meaning is that "books collect dust, and students don't need them," he said. The deeper meaning, he added, is that we have the opportunity to "serve and help give someone else an education."Operation GIVE originated here at UVSC but has exploded into the community. Several local high schools have entered into competition to see who can donate the most. The winning high school is awarded a free dance sponsored by ASUVSC and Redd Alert Entertainment. Local Boy Scouts are also helping by focusing their Eagle Projects on the program.One Boy Scout completed a project of building boxes for the items to be shipped in. Another Scout is collecting supplies in the community as well as going door to door to collect supplies. Two pf v '' In' ' m ears away it is actually closer to the school than Wal-Mart is.
